At the time of the tests all officers of the Titanic were present. "Were there any lifeboats on the Titanic, not sufficiently fas? tened and in a position to be lowered?" All of them were?fourteen lifeboats two seaboats and four collapsible boats" said Boxhall. Boxhall said that under the weather conditions experienced at the time of the collision the lifeboats were supposed to carry sixty five persons. Under the regulations of the British Board of Trade, in addition to the oars, there were in the boats water breakers, water dippers bread bailers mast and sail and lights and a supply if oil. All of these supplies, Boxhall said, were in the boats when ho Titanic left Belfast, He could not say whether they were in when the vessel left Southampton. ".Vow," repeated Senator Smith, "suppose the weather was dear and tlie sky unruffled, as it was at the time of the disaster, how many would the boats hold?'' "Really, I don't know. It would depend largely on the people rho wore to entor. If they old us Ihoy rero told, 1 belle', j each bout could accommodate sixty-five persona." Boxhall testified to tho sobriety and good habits of his superior anj brother . Ulcers. ; "Vou wero on watch Sunday night irotn t> o'clock till midnlghs?" "Vcs." "Spend all 'hit tlmo tit your post?"
