Canadian Pacific Liner, Struck by Collier in
St. Lawrence River at Daybreak?
Laurence Irving Among the Missing.
Blow Cleaves Ship Almos': in Twain and Boiler Explo?
sion Ends All?433 Saved, Mostly from Second Cabin
and Crew?S. O. S. Brings Vessels Too Late.
Rimouski, May 29.?Of a total of 1,387 persons on board the
Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Ireland when she sailed yester?
day from Quebec for Liverpool, 954 were lost when the liner was
rammed by the Danish collier Storstad and sank off Father Point, in
the St. Lawrence River, before daylight to-day, according to revised
figures late to-night. Only 433 are known to have been saved. Of
the 87 first cabin passengers, th?; late figures show 29 to have been
saved. Of the 153 in the second cabin 29 were rescued. Of the 715
third class passengers there are 101 survivors, while 237 of the crew
of 432 were brought ashore.
These figures account for the 396 survivors landed here and
taken by train to Quebec, where they arrived to-night. There re?
mained here 37 rescued persons, unclassified, completing the total of
433 known survivors.
Looming up through the river mists, as the Empress of Ireland
was lying to. waiting for the fog to lift or day to break, the Danish
collier Storstad crashed bow on into the side of the hip; Canadian
liner, striking her about midway of her length and ripping and tearing
her side open clear to the stern.
The crash occurred not far from the shote off Father Point, 150
miles from Quebec, which the Empress of Ireland left yesterday after?
noon bound for Liverpool, and ten miles from this point on the St.
Lawrence. In reality, therefore, although the liner was heading for
sea and the collier coming in frcm it, the disaster was not one of the
ocean, but of the river. Unlike the case of the Titanic, the victims
of the Empress of Ireland disaster lost their lives within sight of
shore?in landlocked waters.
Immediately the ship's crew recovered from the shock of the
collision, it was seen that the liner had received a vital blow, and a
wireless "S O S" call was sounded. The hurried appeal was picked up
by the government mail tender Lady Evelyn here and the govern?
ment pilot boat Eureka, at Father Point, and both at once set out
to the rescue. So deep was the hurt of the Empress, however, and
so fast the inrush of waters that long before either of the rescue boats
could reach the scene the liner had gone down.
Only floating wreckage and a few lifeboats and rafts from the
steamer, buoying up less than a third of those who had set sail on
her, were to be found. The rest had sunk with the steamer, had been
crushed to death in the Storstad's impact with her, or had been forced
from exhaustion and exposure in the ice-chilled northern waters to
loose their hold on bits of wreckage that had supported them and
had drowned.
Only a few persons were picked up by the Storstad. which was
herself badly crippled by the collision, and these were brought here
by the collier, together with those saved by the Eureka and the Lady
Evelyn. Twenty-two of the rescued died from injury or exposure.
The others, most of whom had jumped in the boats or plunged into the
water from the sinking liner, scantily clad, were freely given such
clothing as the women could supply, and later those that were able
to travel were placed on board a train and started for Quebec, where
they arrived to-night.
Accounts agree that in the brief space of time?not more than
fourteen minutes?between the shock of the collision and fhe sinking
of the liner there was little chance for a systematic marshalling of the
passengers. Indeed, everything indicates that hundreds of those on
the steamer probably never reached the decks Very few women were
among the saved.
"It all happened so quickly that we did not really know what
was going on, and nobody had time to cry 'Women first!'" one of
passengers told Captain Bellinger, of the rescue boat Eurekn.
"The stewards did not have time to rouse the people from their
berths," the survivor added. "Those who heard the frenzied calls of
the officers for the passengers to hurry on deck lost no time in obey?
ing them, rushing up from their cabins in scanty attire. They piled
into the boats, which were rapidly lowered and were rowed away.
Many who waited to dress were drowned."
