Travers Allison, eleven months old, was taken to the Hotel Manhattan last night by his nurse and the two maids, who were saved with him In a party of six. The bal.y was the youngest of two children of H. J. Allison, of the banking firm of John? son. MeConnell & Allison, of Montreal, Canada, and Mrs. Bessie Allison, both of whom were drowned with their older child. I-oraine. a girl of three and one-half years. Mr. Allison was connected with several corporations In Montreal, including the Montreal Street ?Railway Company and the Canada Light and Power Company. The baby, cooing and laughing, apparently none the worse physically for the terrible ex? perience he had been through, was met with the nurse and maids by J. Wesley Allison, a cousin of the dead banker, who Is a director of the New York Central Rall p.nd. George B. Allison and Percy W. Allison, brothers of the Montreal hanker who lost his life, were also at the Hotel Manhattan, but they were in no condition to go to the pier to meet their nephew, the only sur? vivor, of the family. ' The nurse to the child said that It waa the hurried launching of the lifeboat in which they were cast adrift that was re? sponsible for the death of Mrs. Allison and the child Loralne. ? Mrs. Allison stood at the rail waiting to be taken on the lifeboat, when, without notice, it waa lowered and she was left standing with her elder child and husband. It was the last lifeboat on which she had a possible chance to leave the stnklng ship. "We were all. In bed when the Titanic struck," said the nurse, "but we did not get up, for we never for a moment thouKht there was any danger. Then a little later we were told we had better get up. and I hurriedly dressed the baby. We went up on deck, and there were not one-quarter enough lifeboats. We got info the lifeboat just like the others, and we thought It was just a precaution, n?"?t because there was any danger. In about an hour there was a tremendous explosion, and the steamship seemed Just to fall apart. We were In the lifeboat five and a half hours before we were picked up." i which struck the Titani? a glancing bio? | stripping off th? keel. "There were six others at the table wti i me." he ?aid.

They were persuaded to take the boats, thl'iklng there was no dan? ger that the slip would sink and that they might be able to return to It in the morn? ing. Captain imlth was r,n ? r brida:?? Dr., Kemp quoted his Informant as saying. A wave washed him into the icy water, uni one of the lifeboats tried to rescue him He fought, but finally was pulled Into th? boat. He then J'.mped overboard an?. swam back to the Titanic, where he was again seen on the bridge and must hav? did at his post. Of the thirty widows on the Carpathia nearly all thought their husbands had beer saved in some other manner. Dr Kemp said, and they were confidently ex? pecting to get some news from them or reaching New York. MRS. EDGAR J. MEYER. Mrs. Edgar J. Meyer, of No. 158 West 6Sth street, whose husband was among those lost tn the disaster, had only the highest respect to pay for the men on board the Titanic, including the officers and crew. She was picked up from a lifeboat by the Carpathia. After the first shock she and her husband ran to the lifeboats. She said : "I tried and tried to get Edgar to come into the lifeboat with me, and pleaded to be allowed to stay behind and wait until he cou'd leave, he not caring to leave before all the women had been saved. Mr. Meyer finally persuaded me to leave him, remind? ing me of our one-year-old child at home. I entered the lifeboat and watched until the Titanic sank, but for only a short time did I see my husband standing beside the rail and assisting other women into boats in which he might have been saved." Mrs. Meyer, who is a daughter of the late Andrew Saks, was In an exhausted con? dition. She said since the death of her husband she had had little or no sleep. Mr. Meyer was vice-presl_ent of the Braden Copper Company, of this city. HUGH WOOLNER. After reaching his hotel, the Woleott. Hugh Woolner, son of Thorn .a Wo.l ner, a Scotch sculptor, had to take to his bed. Through a friend, Edward S. de Le Gundo. he told his story. 'Aftr-' the crash," Mr. Wooln?r said. "I ran on to the too deck. I saw Isidor Straui Dear me. He was urged to get into a boat almost filled with women. He refused, saying: 'The women first.' His wife then threw her arms about his neck. "There were two shots that I hearvl fired by the officers, but only to maintain order. It is absurd to think that Captain Smith committed suicide. "When the last boat waa be'.ng lowered 1 Jumped into it. When the boat stru k the water a sailor and myself grabh??.i th? oars and pulled aw.iv from the Titanio.

'The boat was then almost tlus'.i with the water. I looked toward the vessel and saw Captain Smith assisting a little girl on a raft.

Thomas Whltely. an Intelligent yo??ng fellow of twenty-one, with light hair and blue eyes, who was a waiter in the fir-? saloon, taken to St. Vincent's Hospital with a fractured right leg and numerous bruises, told the following story of the disaster; "I had turned in. My quarters were on the E deck, which le five decks down. 1 was awakened ..bout 11.30 p. m. I did not feel any ?-hock, but a shipmate of mine took me by ?he shoulder and ?said to get out I said : 'Is It 5 :30 o"clock already*"* He said I 'No ; we've hit a berg.' "I looked out of the port, the sea mas like glass and I did not believe him. ? looked on deck and found It covered with Ice. Stokehole No II began to fill with water at once. All the watertight doors were closed. They had to be opened again to let men go down and draw the fires to prevent an explosion. One fellow, I don't know who it was, went down with aoout twenty others and drew all the fires. "The order came : 'All hands above decks with lifebelts I* The deck was crowded The second officer was gatting boat No. 1 ready He asked me to give him a hand. I helped fill the boats. Thtv were crowded with women and children. There were two collapsible boats on each side In addition to the regular lifeboats. At the order of the second officer we get the collapsible boat on the port side ready and No. 1 on the starboard followed. The collapsible boat | No. 2 on the starboard Jammed. I got my leg caught in one of the ropes. The second offeer was hacking at the rope with s, knife. I was being dragged around the deck by that rope, when I looked up and saw the boat flHed with people turning end up on the davits. The boat overturned like that." He waved his hand to show Just how it happened "In some way I got overboard myself md found something to hold on to?an o**,k dresser about the size of this hospital bed. I wasn't more than sixty feet from the Titanic when she went down. I vas aft and could see her big stern rise up In air as she went down bow firs?. I saw all the machinery drop ?out of her. "I was in the water about half an hour and could hear the cries of thousands of people, it seemed. Then I drifted near a I boat wrong side up. About thirty men were clinging to it. They refused to let me get en. Some one tried to hit me with an oar. but I scrambled on to her. A? S:K) o'clock In the morning we were taken aboard the Carpathia. "There was a hi* of panic when it first happened. The officers had to use their revolvers. The chief officer shot one man? I didn't see this, but three others dl?l?and th?-n he rhot hlm*-e!?? But everybody be? haved splendidly, especially the firemen. "It was a black berg we struck, and though the night was clear it was impos? sible to see one of that color. I saw an? other like It when drifting on the over? turned lifeboat. "The berg the Titanic hit was on the starboard bow, and they were doing twen? ty-five knots, trying to break the record to New York. "Phillips, the first Marconi operator, stuck to his post till the last. He was on the overturned lifeboat with me and was dead when they took him aboard the Carpathia They tried to revive him with brar?! nil that, but It was too late.
