| morning that all but eight of the pas-
I sengers had been landed at Queens-
I town. Four of theso were said to be
Americans. According to Information
cabled to Washington by Lewis C.
Thompson, American consul at Queens
town, however. Dr. Wood and Mrs.
Bruguiere are the only missing Ameri
cans. The other two—James Houli
han, of Philadelphia, and Thomas El-
I more, of New York—were reported by
Mr. Thompson to have been saved.
Four Hundred Accounted For
In all about 400 of the 423 persons
on board the Arabic have been ac
counted for. The fate of the others is
still in doubt, but as the hours lengthen
since the Arabic met with swift de
struction hopes that the others may
have been saved are fading.
The announcement that all but eight
of the passengers were saved bore out
earlier reports that the great majority
of the missing were members of the
crew. Captain William Finch, of the
Arabic, gave testimony to the heroism
of his engineers and firemen, several of
whom remained at their posts to the
last to insure the safety of the passen
gers and probably sacrificed their
lives. Other survivors say that the
torpedo which rent the Arabic's hull
killed outright several men in the
boiler rooms. The torpedo struck on
the starboard side about 100 feet from
the stern near the location of the
boiler rooms.
England is Stirred
t , Th ®, torpedoing of the Arabic has
stirred England from end to end, al
though on account of the compara
tively small loss of life, public feeling
does not show signs of running as high
as in the days following the sinking
of the Lusitania. That such a large
proportion of the passengers and crew
should have been saved in the short
time available for the work is regarded
as better fortune than might have heen
expected under the circumstances. Ap
parently it was due to the coolness and
courage of the officers and crew from
Captain Finch, who remained at his
post until just before the Arahic took
her final nlunge, down to the fire
men who faced certain death to per
form their duty. Fine weather and a
calm sea also contributed to the out
Survivors Assisted
In Queenstown everything possible
was done to-day to assist the survivors
many of whom -were without clothes
or money. As in the case of the Lusi
tania disaster, the citizens of Queens
town came to the assistance of the
sufferers and none went without cloth
ing, food and shelter. A number of
the survivors are suffering from minor
injuries, but so far as is known none
is in a serious condition.
rnnln facts of the disaster
established, the English public turned
its attention to the possible effect upon
relations between the United States
and Germany. Definite word whether
American lives had been lost was
awaited with more eagerness than
any other detail of the Arabic's story
yet to be told.
Two American Citizens
Still Unaccounted For
By Associated Prtss
New Yorlf, Aug. 20.—Two Amer
icans were still unaccounted for to
day in the lists received here giving
the names of those saved from the
White Star steamship Arabic, tor
pedoed and sunk yesterday morning
by a German submarine off the South
coast of Ireland. They were Dr. Ed
mund F. Wood, of Janesville, Wis.,
and Mrs. Josephine L. Bruguiere, a
wealthy American widow, who has
been living in Europe for some years,
but who is well known in New York!
Newport and San Francisco.
The local office of the White Star
line had no record of the safety of
two other Americans, James Houll
tan, of Philadelphia, and Thomas El-
more, of New York, but the names of
Houlihan and Elmore appeared on a
list of sixteen American survivors re
ceived by the State Department at
Washington from Levis C. Thomp
son, the United States consul at
Queenstown, Ireland.
Reports to the White Star line here
showed that twenty persons in all
of those aboard the lost liner had not
been accounted for. Eight of these
were passengers.
The Arabic carried 423 persons
when she left Liverpool Wednesday,
181 passengers and 242 in her crew.
A dispatch from Queenstown this
morning said on the authority of
Consul Thompson that there were
only twenty-one American citizens
among the Arabic's passengers. Ad
vices received last night placed the
number of Americans on board at
j twenty-six.
| Dr. Wood, one of the Americans
| unaccounted for, is a leading Wiscon
i sin surgeon. He was on his way

University of California. She mar

In the absence of authentic infor
mation regarding the destruction of
the Arabic officials reserved their com
ments, although the incident caused
grave concern here. Just what course
of action will be taken by the United
States government will be determined
upon only after official details have
been received.
The fast American note to Germany
on the sinking of the Lusitania gave
warning that the United States Vould
regard as "deliberately unfriendly'
any act in violation of the rights of
American citizens upon the seas. The
note stated specifically that "the lives
of noncombatants may in no case be
put in jeopardy unless the vessel re
sists or seeks to escape after being
summoned to submit to an exami
If there was no loss of American
lives. It was regarded here as unlikely
that drastic action would be taken,
although if there was, it was believed
that diplomatic relations between the
United States and Germany would be
broken off.
The attack on the Arabic caused
general surprise here, particularly in
view of the fact that no hint came
from the German government that
submarine commanders would con
tinue torpedoing ships without warn
ing and despite frequent reiterations
in German circles here that In the
future warning would be given Offi
cials here had hoped, therefore that
the already tense situation between the
United States and Germany would not
be further aggravated.
