Iarte in tho afternoon Vice-President
Franklin got this message which had
been sent by the Chester through the
Government torpedo station at Newport:

of Andrew Saks, who tlied last week,

ing a conference between President Taft
and Secietury MaoVeagh, that the owners
of the steamship Carpathia had Informed
the Government that reporters would not
lie permitted to lioard the vessel in ad
vance of landing. Many requests have
beep received at the Treasury Depart
ment for authority for representative
of the press to board Government vessels
with a view to transporting them to sea
to meet tlio Carputhiu, The owners of
the Carpathia objected to this, saying that
the survivors of the Titanic, mo-tlv women
and children, were hysterical and in no
condition to be Interview..!. The Presi
dent and Secretary MacVeagh both up
predated the desire of the public for in

the position of the steam-ship company.
There will be no customs examination
of tho Titanic survivor who ate on the
Carpathia. They will be free to leave
the vessel immediately upon landing.
Judging from the meagre informant urn

timated to-night Unit the Curputhia at
1 o'clock this morning was approximately
in latitude 40-50 north, longitude t)S-0

of New York city.
This was based principally upon the
estimate of tho Carpathian captain re
ported from the Newport station lost night
that tho Cunarder will reach New York
about 11 o'clod Thursday night. It is
thought the Chester must have met the
Carpathia some time this afternoon and
is now convoying her in. Tho Salem's

CARPATHIA LETS NO

DENIAL THAT NEWS
Cumircl Official Hcnrtl Titnnie's
Fate Was Known Here at
10 A. M. Monday.
NOT UNTIL 0:30, LINE SAYS
Montreal Reports That the News
Got There From Here
Une of the persistent reports yesterday
was to tho effect thut the White Star Line
knew of the sinking of the Titanio hours
before announcement of tho fact was
made at the oflices of the Wlilto Star Line
on Monday evening. The Carpathia got
to tho scene of the wreck at daybreak
Monday How early she got news to the
Olympic that the Titanio was gone is
as vet a matter of surmise. It was the
Olympic that sent the messages to land.
Vice-president Franklin of the Inter
national Mercantile Marine said when
asked about these reports:
"I have denied these reports more than
once. 1 say most emphatically that this
lino did not have word of the sinking of
the Titanic until a few minutes before it
was announced by me on Monday evening.
No official of the line could have had
such a message without my knowing of it,
We have concealed nothing,"
Mr. Franklin was told that Thomas J.
Stead, an assistant to the vice-president
of the Cunard Line, was quoted as saying
that ho had information to the effect
that it was known in this city at 10 o'clock
on Monday morning that the Titanio had
sunk. Mr. Franklin telephoned to Gen
eral Manager Sumner of the Cunard Line
und asked him to send Mr. Stood to the
White Star offlce so that ho might ex
plain to the reporters present and to the
White Star official just what he had said.
Mr. Stead, who hurried over, was much
"I did not suy." he explained, "that
the White Star Line or any official of the
line know of tills message. All I said
wa that a personal friend told mo that he
knew of the sinking of the Titanio at 10
o clock on Monday morning. I had con
lldenre in this man and I did tell some of
the reporter that thl statement had been
made to me. But 1 did not say that the
White Star Line had any such kuowledge."
Karlier in the day Mr. Franklin was
asked if a published report was true that
J. Pierpout Morgan, Jr., who is one of
the director of the International Mer
cantile Marine, got information from the
White Star Line In the forenoon Monday
that the Titanic had sunk. Mr. Franklin
wa just us emphatic in saying that Mr.
Morgan did not get any such information
from the line because the line tlid not
have it to give until A:30 P. M.
Mr. Franklin said last evening that
no message had been received from J.
Bruce Ismay, managing director of the
International Mercantile Marina, one of
the men saved from the Titanic. Mr.
Franklin declined to speculate on the
Mo.vrnKAt., April 17. - Investigation
here to-day indicated that the sinking
of the liner Titanic was known long before
it was mailii public and nt the very time
reassuring reports that all on board were
sufe were being given out. It is known
that the news of the disaster was sent
to Mpntreul on Monday afternoon and was
confirmed by a telephone message from
Tho despatch received in Montreal
saying that the Virginian was towing the
Titanio to port came from the wireless
operator at Cape Race.

Philadelphia, April 17. Tho Penn
sylvania Railroad officials havo boen
skeptical from tho start as to the safety
of John B. Thayer, tho second vice-presi
dent of tho company whom the wireless
liad reported saved. They have used
every endeavor to get into communica
tion with Mrs. Thayer, and finally early
this evening Joseph Richardson, the
assistant to the second vioe-president,
received a wireless from Mrs. Thayer
in which sho said that Jack, Margaret
(the maid) and she had been saved. She
said that site had no news of Mr. Thayer
yet. She also gave the names of two mc ro
llers of the family whom she wished
to have meet her in New York upon her
The fact that his wife says she has not
seen him yet leads persons here to believe
that the survivors on the Carpathia may
have been told that other vessels would
pick up the remainder of the passengers.

Titanic Disaster Has Little KsTect
oa Transatlantic Travel.
That the disaster to the Titanic has not
seriously affected travel by the ocean
ferry, ia. illustrated by the departure
to-day of three steamships, the North
German Loyd liner Oeorgo Washington,
for Bremen; the Hamburg-American
liner Moltke, for Hamburg, and the Whito
Star liner Cedric, for Queenstown and
Liverpool. The Oeorge Washington lias
more than her usual mid-April number
of voyagers, including a small number
who had been booked for the Titanic.
The Cunarder Carmania, which sailed
yesterday, took away twenty who had
intended to take the Titanic. The
Cunarder Mauretnnia. which sails next
Wednesday for Fishguard and Liver
pool, will have every lirst cabin berth
filled. She will take about 120 of those
who had leen booked for the Titanic.
The agents of all the lines said that there
had Imhmi no falling off in booking becauso
of tho fate of tho Titanic. The impression
seems to prevailamongseagnersthat after
a serious accident commanders are likely
to be extra careful. April and May are

London. April 17. Tlm opinion 0rvnrd disappointing news that alie
prominent suffragettes worn asked in ' was doing her best to talk to the Car-
regard to the chivalry of tho men on the j
Titanic, in view of the contention of mnny
of tho leading militants that chivalry.
Annio Kennev. the organizing secretary
of the Women's Social and Political Union
and one of the foremost suffragettes next
to Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, admitted
her admiration for the heroism of tho men
on the Titanio. She added, howover, that
inm. I. was almost a natural law. she
said, that women and children should be
saved first, the children because childhood
is sacred and tho women because they
are so necessary to tho race that they can
not bo spared.
"At a crisis such as this, she said, it
must bo admitted thut tho lives of women
are moro useful to the raco than tho lives
of men. If it Is insisted that for tho men
to recocnizo nnd act on this vlow is chiv
alry, It is also tho moment to Insist on the
every day chivalry of women which goes
on always and Is usually not recognized.
"Women cheerfully starve for their
husbands and children and starving is
much slower and moro painful than drown
ing. Man is chivalrous at moments of a
crisis, but in the aggregate tho balance
of chivalry is on the part of women."
Miss Sylvia Pankhurst said sho did not
want to minlmizo the gallantry displayed
by the men on file Titanio, but it must,
not bo forgotten that It is thn universal
rule in cases of shipwreck that the women
and children shall be taken euro of first.
"WilliamT. Stead was ono of our earliest
and best supporters," sho said, We shall
suffer u great blow if ho has perished."
Another suffragette said sho did not
wish to bo ungracious, but sho thought
it was tho least men could do let tlio
women leave the ship first.
"We," Bho said, "huvo to suffer so many
disabilities throughout our lives that we
may nt least e.Hct tome advantages at
such u crisis."
Other women made the point that u
single instance under exceptional circum
stances did not constltuto chivalry. If
they were consistently chivalrous the men
oukl hell) the women's
udded these sukeiH.
