Kew York, April 16.?More anpaltltw
with the lapse of lime grows the tale
Of the Titanic1? loss. The few brief
messages that came pi.Ising by wire,
less out of the Ice-Infested zone, where
the white borbs lift their points as
the sole monument above the steam
Ship's crave, bluEted more hopes than
they fostered. Definite Information
Increased the list of known saved from
the 676 reported yesterday to a total
of 893 survivors. Including passenger's
and orew. All these are ahoaid the
Cunard steamship Carpathla. She Is
at best not a fast ship. Iter captain

with bor stricken freight of desolat?

In the meantime, the brief, Illusory
hope that other survivora might have
been picked up by the Virginian or
tliu Parisian, of the Allan Line, was
extinguished early In tht day. Both of
these vassals flashed Iii? dispiriting

The Titanic was stealing along
slowly through the log, her Mgnalt
blowing hoarsely and constantly
Everything was right with her. Mos:

have been below in theii hunks sleep.
I ing. icehng as secure in the largest
of tho world's vessels as they would

i omen shock, Tbcn Conf union.
Then, In one brief minute, unit the
shock, wild confusion, the rush ol
many feet on deck, the cries of the
men and the- weeping of women, min?
gled witii the wailing of children and
the calm voices of the crew.
Sirens sounding, hells ringing, th?
Titanic maintained its path majesti?
cally until the hidden floe loomed up
In front, and there was a crash which
must have made even thai big ves?
sel. iour blocks in length, shiver and
gioan from end to end. Then the hur- I
rlcd commands and tramping feet on
the bridge, the sounding ot signals to
the engine room and the scramble of
passengers, most of theni scantily clad,
up the companion ways.
1 1: Is believed that the shock of th.: j
1 collision throw many out of th^-ir i
; banks to tlie state-pom floors, in the
I Inky black.iess. with the big ship I
'careening and the celling apparently!
I having changed places with th- floor,
linen, women and children staggered I
land groped their way forward and;
I above. Husbands *earch/*j for wives.'
I and faint rs and mothc/ii put out their
: hands to ace ihat their children were ]
i cltfse at hand.
In all the turmoil, amid scenes tha.1
I tried the stoutest men. It is plain from
the dispatches that tii_- wireless opera?
tor, T. ?J. Phillips, m hi- little coop.
I kept his hand steady on trie key of
i his Instrument, and the messages for
help went sizzling and sputtering
; through the night, with no break in
I the dots and dashes which told ttie
I story of the leviathan's distress, alone
I amid the friendless ic-, which Ja.nn
|p-red her on every side. The "water?
tight'-' compartments of the Titanic
wore tilling, and she was going -low n:
at the head, but th; silent man at Iiis'
wireless Instrument kep' Shooting
messages out across hundreds of mil**
of nigat "black as t ic pit." and the
'captain and the crow busied them?
selves In quieting the passetigSrs and
in seeing lb ii that the lifeboats' were
lowered, from the davits.
Ii must have required no small skill
to have swung tile boats clear of the
lc? and to have kept them from being
crushed between the floes, it is prob?
able that while this was going on
rockets were flaring red in the sky
i and lights were casting their weird
I illumination over the huddled pale-1
, faced groups, lending an unnatural I
I atmosphere to the scene.
Women nnd Children Tirol,
i The crew kept the men back while
i the women and children were helped
i into the boats, say ih? fragmentary
. dispatches. The courage of the men
passengers, as well as of the crew,:
seems to haw been of the hiehesl.
. Apparently there was ho wild scrim
ble for the hoats, such as has occurred
In other notable wrecks.
The women and children, in the
scantiest clothing, took their allotted
place? In the small iio-.its. The dis?
patches Indicate that tho htg ship's I
condition was such that no tint- could
be spared t?. return to staterooms for
additional clothes.
The experiences through which that
little army of tho rescued passed,
walle the frail boats ro*? and fell on
the swells, must hat ? been scarcely
less terrible than those of the people
loft behind on the ship. The suffering
of everybody was in'.eny >, and nie
darkness such as t>> test mint's sanity.'i
The terror of i. unknown Is always
greater than that which can he seen.
There Is a ehnhce that nil the boats
did not win through the manifold
perils which encompassed them.
In all probability wives and mothers |
parted forever at the companipnw.iy I
ladders with husbands and fathers,]
and th- last they saw of them was tile j
glimpse of their set. pale faces, ns
mutual farewells were waved. Slowly I
tlie Titanic drifted southward as the |
wireless called and called for help, ami .
at :! o'clock In tho morning, with a
(?great heave, she sank beneath the stir- |
face of the waves. \nswcrlng Mashes,
had come through ?'i>? gloom, telling j
[the distressed, who hoped and pray 3d I
that the Carpathln was Listening |
through tlie night, but she came too
late. When she reached the scene all !
she saw was a blank sea. ami lilts of;
wreckage floating about. The ?roatesi
of all steamships w?.? hui a fleeting
memory.
it was daylight w.ien Hie Carpathln
arrived, and the night had fled. What)
a shout of thanksgiving mn?i have j
con ?? up from overburdened hearts as '
?the how of the friendly ship loomed
up in the light of another sun!
F.ellpae? Any Fiction.
That the-.stories of the half-frenzied
I survivors will eclipse anything in-fic
! lion was certain from 'the brief nnd
disjointed Information thai Was avail?
able her.- from th- wlrelcfs lervicos.
The collision neeurr-'d in ibo decpesi
.larkne.?s and after man'.' of the p.is
senaers had retired for the night.
1 The crashing of steel upon solid ice
must havo struok the care of the
merry ship's company and forecast the
horrors that were aoon to come. 'I'horo
must have been the rush to tho decks,
with the few wraps hastily picked up
in the mad flight, only to get the word
Immediately that the ship whs wound?
ed to death, and that there was uo
chance of all being saved.
In the midst of an ice field, the
tossing and tumbling In the strong
swell that never Is absent from tho
Grand Banks, and with the bitter,
piercing almospheru cutting tender
flesh to the bono, men and women
faced the end. Loved ones were part?
ed. Husbands embraced wives and
their babies for tho last time, and
then the stalwart seani"n begun the
wor.. of putting the- great boats ? tlodr
nunfbci cruelly few?over the side.
The le? fields must have been very
heavy. Other vessels, Just in port lore
and on the other side, deserlhe the
fields as almost solid, and It is certain
that tin- greatest care must have h?en
taken In launching the boats, so that
they were hot overturned.
The women atid children, it seems
certdln. suffered greatly while the
frail boats In which they had taken
refuse tossed like corks on the sur?
face of the water, It was long after
daylight when the Carpalhia finally
arrived.
When dawn came It revealed In all
ilk horrors the terrible situation.
Wreckage was On every hand, and here
atid there a human being with
distorted visage frozen stiff, kept
afloat with life belts or lashed
to wreckage. All was d'-eolatlon. 1'r.iil
women collapsed and men ..at help?
less, awed by the magnitude the
holocaust.
The Carpathla brought help, hut H
did not lift the pali from their hearts
or blot out 'be horror "f the world's
greatest rrn disaster.

(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.)
New York, April ll?Tho last filnt

of many that nior. than %?? S survivors
of the wrecked Titanic carried by the
Carpathla had been saved hy some of
the other vossels that haatenod to

I passenger agent of the Allan Line, in
I this message. It Is b'ljeved. he oon
, tinned, that the Tllmlo sank more

j that the work of loading the boats j

All hope of relatives and friends of

thus concentrated on shr Carpathla;

of joy and sorrow.
Last Authentic Word.
The last authentic word from the
Cunardei came this morning In a
wireless dispatch scut twenty-four
hours earlier and delayed In some j
???}? unaccountable to the officers of

This- dispatch was sent by Captain i

Among tho prominent persona ro- ;

In the United States. Mr. Kutrelle had

Mr.-Kutrelle was always fond of the?

was a one-act play entitled "Jambore?." i
which was played, with Mrs. Kutrelle I
In the leading role, at the old Bijou, ?
now the Colonial, at lOighth and Broad
Streets. Shortly after the play was
produced Mr. Knlroljo 1 --rt Richmond. ;

a theatrical o'timpahy. It was not long
before he made his name well known
to the peopli throughout the country by
stories which lie contributed to various ?
magazines. It was not. however, until
ll'll that Mr. Kutrelle became ?again ,
connected with The. Times-Dispatch,
when he contributed a numb >r of ex?

AT LEAST 1400 LIVES LOST

Agencies.
[Special tc Tho Times-Dispatch.]
New Vork. April 16.?.At least 1.100,
ami possibly 1,600, per sous perished
whon the slant liner Titanic dove to
the butt'im of the Atlantic B00 miles
off Cape lVacc ai 2:;o o'clock Monday

These 11 g urea represent the minimum
and maximum of the estimates ot los*
of life made here at a late iioiir""(T

the White Star Line and other steam?
ship companies and by independent
agencies.
A revlact) and corrected lint of tho
survivors, received by wireless from
the liner Carpathla, which is bringing
the survivors to tili/, port, contains
only 30;< names. Tills tact has cau.-td
great anxiety among the throngs be?
sieging the Steamship ajid newspaper
offices, as earlier reports led to the
belief that many more first and sec?
ond-cabin passengers than that num?
ber had been saved, and that there
are not as many as 150 member* of
tho the crew picked up.
Our Ult of Ocllnltr Xeves,
To the scores o: grief-stricken rela?
tives nnd friends of those who jailed
on the Titanic last Wednesday only
thib one bit of definite hi ws is avail?
able to-night:
The steamer Carpalhia, carrying the
survivors, will reach port Thursday
night or Friday morning. Her captjin
that she Is making all speed possible,
nnd at a late hour asked hiiat special
docking a ri engements be made. Alt
these arrangements have b'">n com?
pleted. Orders have been received ;
from Washington to waive all customs
regulations, and similarly the p-.>ri
officers will not delay the ship nt I
Quarantine, The Carpathla will be
given the tight of way over all other
snips bound In, and w||| proced di?
rectly to her dock at the Canard
piers.
The Carpathia at 10:15 o'clock was
reported under high steam about 5Q?
miles from New Vork. She will be
met by the scout cruiser Chester,
commanded by Demon C. Decker, now
at Newport. The Navy Department
to-night ordered th,- Chester to get
in wireless communication with the
Carpathla and proceed toward her
With all possible speed. The Chester,
which ha,s an excellent wireless sta?
tion on board, will disseminate press
matter for the newspapers of the
country.
From what can be learned to-night
many of those who came through the
harrowing scenes of the wreck are In
a pitiful state. Most of thc-m had re?
tired and were forced to leave the
vessel In their night r.iyTients. Then
for eight hnuis they were buffeted
about in the sea of Ice. Exposed to
j the icy blasts of ihe ocean, they
I drifted in the small lifeboats, and
saw the great paliu-e of the deep,
?with its v/onderful ill/umlnatlion,
.-lowly sink, carrying with It the hus
bnnds, fathers, brother.; and sweet?
hearts to whom they bad said a hasty
f. re weil.
No (load Tiding*.
l-ite messages contain nothing to
indicate that any of the distinguished
I men who have been reported missing

of private messages have been sen;
to the Carpathla inquiring for .lohn

Stead, and others ,,f the notable list.
but have brought no tidings that they
escaped.
The Sable Island wireless station

will drive hor, bringing in the StiS
members of the passengers and clew
of the White Star Liner Titanic,
which flank early Monday morning,
SOI) miles oft New Foiindland, after
hor coUlslon with an Iceberg. Since
' the Cunardor left the scene, of the
wreck, probably about. 1 :HU o'clock
? Monday morning, no word has been
received from her. She will make no
Flop until ahc readies this port, and
here she will not bo head up at quar?
antine for, since leaving hero, for a
i cruise in tho Mediterranean, she ha3
j stopped at no foreign port. Never?
theless, it is not believed that the
j liner can reach before lato Thursday
I afternoon or early Friday morning.
I Then she will go direct to the cunard
; Pier at the foot of Twelfth. Thir
I teenth, and Fourteenth Streets, and
j the North River.
j Not until then, perhaps, will It be
i known just how many of Die .pas
| sengt-rs of the Titanic have been
; saved. So far only 40u names have
been wireless from the Carpathia,
though it was reported thut XtfS were
I saved. Certain it is that 1,252 of the
ships complement of 2,180 souls have
I been lost, but who are the S68 that
I have been saved cannot be told.
It is known th^t the Carpathia was
in wire leas communication with th)
Olympic, of the White Star Line, as
late as 2:30 A. M. Monday, and the
Olympic, with iiei greater wiroless
range, sent the list of those rescued and
j then aboard till Carpathia to the
wireless station at Cape Race, N. IT.
' Hut at 2:30 o'clock the Olympic ceased
adding more names to the list of rea?
died, though the steamer continued in
wireless communication with Caps
Race for another hour, finally steam
lug out of range with a message of
l are well about daybreak.
Why the last named hour was not
utilized to send more names of res?
cued pass ,'ngers, If such were aboard
the Carpathia, cannot be guessed, It is
possible that the Carpathia got out of
range of the Olympic while that steam?
er was still In communication with
t'apo Race. It is possible also, how?
ever, that of the ?6S persons .wvjd, alt
but the list which ihe Olympic relayed
jure members of tho crew,
eth tndllib.u ofdlRo mfw
Many of the crew would have been
needed to man the lifeboats. How
many would be required for this ser?
vile is not known exactly. If tho
Olympic ceased sending names because
she had completed the list of passen?
gers saved It would seem that some
?IS* men of the crew were required to
? save loo passengers,
j Efforts to reach the Carpathln to
, ask for additional names of other pas
'? sengers on board have failed. No
, word has been received from the hoat
: since the last one relayed by the Olym
1 pic. As she ncarsi port, however, the
! Carpathln must come within t?tige
j of the wireless station at Siuseonseit,
on Nantucket, and the siting if si.i
1 lions along the south above of Long
I Island.
It may be that then ?re will add
other names to the list which she
has sent already and offer a suitable
explanation of why the send'ng .-cased
when the wireless commun'culion with
shore could still be had.

Tli? minies of neither Major Butt nor

As t'ne result of a day of telegraph?

When Run to Earth They Give

for Hope.
CSpecia.1 to The Ttmes-Dispa,lch.]
New Vork. April 10.?There was no
news to-(lay to sho wilint more than
070 passengers had been saved (rum
lie- wreck of the Titanic. That ship
carried in all 1,320 in the tlrst, second
and third class cabins. When run to
sarlh there was nothing to indicate
that th"ie are survivors of the ves?
sel. No authentic wireless dispatches
show this to be tho case.
The C?naxd Line, through Its steam?
ship Carpathla, is the oul; agency that
can send any autlunt:.. messages to
the world at large. Several ot thean
were received to-day 1 nthl? city, rav?
ing been first sera to the Olympic, ot "
tho While .Star Line, and thin relayed
to the land linos, thence to New Vork.
Captain Uostron. of the Carpathla, says:
"Am proceeding to Now Vork, unless
otherwise ordered, with about ?Ou. Af?
ter having consulted with Mr. Isniay,
and in th,= circumstances, with so much
Ice about, oonstder New York best.
Large number of Icebergs and I am In
a twonty-mllo Meld of Ice, with many,
bergs In the field."
Captain Rostron Is an old man of
the son. Tho Cunard pedpl-3 said to?
day that If lie had SOS survivors no
would not have said "about 3'JO." lit
was conceded by the White Star Lino
that whether the number be SOU or, ivriS,
or bctwe?n tho tw-o figures, lucre' are,
ot" course, many members ot the crew,
and it Is probable thai the original
number of 07.~> is the total of tho pas?
sengers saved, and the figure, above.
\ that represents officers and members of
j the Titanic's crow.
Thoro were in all 1,320 passengers,
and assuming that l!7& have been savd,
there are rile lost. There were In all,
as far as tlu records show, !s6U mem?
bers of tho crow, including officers,
stewards, stewardesses, firemen and
sailors, and even taking the liguro of
SliS as the survivors, tin total number
Saved of officers and crsw would Im
193, anil the total lost ?07. Tills would
show a total loss of passengers und
crew of 1,31?.
As It is not likely, In view of the
('ai pailii.Vs wireless telegram thai
there are SOS saved, tue loss probably
will run nearer 1.100.
The total saved In first cabin was
'JO'.', so far as the records show. Tin;
total saved in the second cabin wtU
120, as for as rcpotioJ. Assuming
thai 675 of the passeugct s have been
saved, tills wt/uld Jcuvc a margin o?
:t?:i lor the tltlid cabin. There were
32fi first-class cabin passensCI'S listed,
which Would leave a loss Ot 1-3 there,
out it is already recorded by cable
from tlie other side that at least seven
and perhaps ten of these did not take,
tin Titanic.
There is n total of 2S."i second cabin
passengers on the prlutcd list and on
the supplemented cabled list. WUh
l-ii saved, this would .leave a loss
of in."., bin it is known that at least
] four, and in rhups sis or seven, did
not sail on the White star boat. There
wore 71*' in tin- third cabia. and 'f it
be assumed that ihr other 3-3 re?
ported saved belong there, then 3SS
were lost. Owing to the fact that the
Ciirpiilh'a has what Is call led a second
class wireless coil and cannot surely
telegraph more than .100 tulles, her mes?
sages have been relayed from ohu
slop lo another, then to the land and
to New york, and ?o It may happen
that there aro more saved of the
first and second eaTiln passengers Uiaa
tin. number recorded to-night.
