Rimouskl, Que., May 31. —Nine hun dred and sixty-nine persons lost their lives Friday morning when the great Canadian Pacific twin screw liner Em press of Ireland was rammed amid ships in a thick fog off Father Point in the St Lawrence and sunk by the Norweigian collier Storstad. Four hundred and eighteen survi vors were picked up from floating wreckage and two lifeboats. And only 12 of the saved are women. Gathered piecemeal from survivors the horror of this wreck grows with the telling. Waters Quickly Engulf Ship. The doomed ones had little time even to pray. They were engulfed by the onrushlng waters that swallowed i±e big ship inside of nineteen min utes from the time she was struck. The wireless operators on the Em press, sticking to their posts to the last, had time only to send a few “S. O. S.” calls for help when the rising waters silenced their instruments. That silence told the rescuers miles away more potently than a bugle that doom had overtaken the ship. Only blx hours before this fateful collision the passengers sang as a good-night hymn ‘‘God Be With You Till We Meet Again,” played by the Salvation Army band on board. The members of that band and most of the 165 Salvationists were among the lost Survivors Tell of Fog. It was foggy, according to survivors, when the Empress of Ireland, a steel hulled, steel-bulkheaded Bhip of more than eight thousand tons, left Mon treal at 4:30 Thursday afternoon in command of H. G. Kendall of the Royal Naval Reserve, one of the most Bkilled of transatlantic navigators. Forest fires also obscured the at mosphere and the big ship, in charge of a pilot, proceeded slowly on her way to sea. At midnight the pilot aide left near Father Point, shouting a merry “Bon Voyage" as he went dovn their ladder to his waiting boat. The darkness at this time was In tense and the ship under the slowest speed possible with steerageway held her course. Her decks were deserted. The passengers had all sought berths with no thought of impending death. Out of the darkness, on the port side, soon after 2.30 In the morning there loomed the little Norwegian col lier, not half the size of the Empress, but fated to be her destroyer. Not until the collier was almost abeam of the big liner was the danger known on etther ffiip. The fog had Hotted out the lights ss well as the port ant. starboard lights of both ships. Quick orders trumpted on both ves sels were heard. But they came all too late. Strikes Ship Amidships. The steel-pointed of the Stor gtfld struck the liner amidships and then forged aft, ripping and tearing its way through the Empress of Ireland. Clear to the stern of the Empress of Ireland was the great steel shaving cut from her side, from the top or the hull far below the water line. Into WIRELESS AGAIN PROVES DEATH NEMESIS ON SEA. Wireless telegraphy, which has been the savior In the hour of gravest dan ger to thousaud3 of helpless victims in disasters at sea, and which flick ered out the sturdy "S. O. S." that brought succor to the Empress of Ire land early today, has again proved itself the Nemesis of death on the ocean. Statisticians who became busy chalking up and adding the human credit marks that wireless has earned. STEAMSHIP LINE PRESIDENT MAKES A STATEMENT. Montreal. Que. May 30. —Sir Thom as Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific railway, issued the following statement: •‘The catastrophe, because of the great loss of life. Is the most serious in the history of the St. Lawrence route. “From the facts as we have them it Is apparent that about two o clock the Empress of Ireland, when stopped in a dense fog. was rammed on the LOST OCEAN LINER EMPRESS OF IRELAND that rent the water poured with the force of a Niagara. The bow of the Storstad sma. hed its way through berths on that side of the ship, killing passengers sleeping in their berths and grinding holies to pieces. Reaching the stem of the bi; liner, the Storstad staggered off in the dark ness, her bow crumpled by the impact! Her commander was ready a ft w min utes later, when he found his ship would float, to aid the crippled and sinking Empress, but he was too late to save the majority of those or board. Carried to Bottom. The Empress of Ireland recoiled al most on her starboard beam ends from the blow of the collier and pas jengers were flung from their berths against the walls of their staterooms. Many were stunDed and before they had time to recover were carried to the bottom with the ship. The vast torrents pouring into the great gash on the port side, aft, filled the corridors and flooded every state room abaft the midship section in side of four minutes. There was never a chance for the< helpless ones in the after cabins and staterooms of the liner. With her port, side laid open for half its leng.h from, the midship section to the stern, 8. selve had more chance to floit thar the Empress of Ireland, aid the trapped passengers in that after sec tion were doomed from the moment: the Storstad struck. Reeling from the blow the nhip be gan to settle almost immediately ati the water rushed into the big rent. From the forward cabins, however, men and women in night attire stum bled along the corridors and up the companion way to the promenade deck —the deck below, the one on which the boats rested. Swarm to Deck. Up they swarmed on deck :n their night clothing to find the ship neeling away to port and the deck slanting at a degree that made it almost impos sible to stand even clinging to railings. Men and women, shrieking, praying, crying for aid that was fated to arrive too late, fell over one another in that last struggle for life on board the doomed Empress of Ireland. Frenzied mothers leaped overboard with their babies in their arms Others knelt on deck and tried to pray in the few moments left to them. Some were flung overboard by the heeling of the sinking ship and some broke tteir leg 9 or arms in trying to reach the life boats. Above the din of the struggle on the great promenade deck could be heard Certain Kendall shouting commands for the launching of the lifeboats. Sev eral were launched in the 19 minutes that the ship floated. There was no time to observe the rule ‘‘Women first” in this disaster, for those nearest the boats scrambled to places in them. But even as they were being launched, while the wireless s till was calling “S. O. S.” there came * terrific explosion that almost rent the ship in twain. It was the explosion of the boilers declared that probably 6,000 persons owe their lives to the fact that, a wiro iess station was near them n some disaster. They declared it has re duced the terrors of ocean t-avel as nothing else under Provldencj has. it came into practical use in 1901. The steamship Republic, threatening 1.600 lives in a head-on collis on with the Florida, that year, gave It its first real sea try-out. The Alaska was the next. In mi<i- portside by the collier Stciwtad !n such a manner as to tear Ibe sh p from the middle to the screw, thus making the watertight bulkheads, with which she was provided, useless. ' The vessel settled down is 14 min utes. The accident occured at a time when the passengers were in bed. and the interval before tbs steam ship went down was not sufficient to enable the officers to arouse the pas sengers and get them into tie boats. struck by the coll water. A geyser of water shot upward from tne midship section, mingled with fragments of wreckage, that showered down upon the passengers still clinging the rails forward and upon those strug gling in the water. The explosion destroyed the last hope of the ship’s floating until succor could arrive, for the shock had smashed the forward steel bulkhead walls that had up to then shut out the torrents invading: the after part. The water rushed forward and the Empress of Ireland, went swiftly to her doom, carrying down with her hundreds of passengers who stood on her slanting deck, their arms stretched upward and their last cries choked In the engulfing waters. One of the survivors, relating that last tragic scene on the decks of the liner, said: ‘‘l was asleep like most of the pas sengers when the collision came. There was a 3ikening crunching of wood and steel and then a grinding, ripping sound as the 3torstad smashed her way along the port side oi! our ship. “I knew' that we had been strmk and I rushed tc the staterooms of some friends and shouted to them to get up, as the ship wae sinking. Stateroom doors flew open all along the corridor and men and w omen began to rush for the grand companion forward. Those aft must have been drowned in their berths. Darkness Is Intense. “On deck officers of the ship, par tially dressed, were rushing about urging passengers to tie calm. Sailors under orders were trying to launch the lifeboats. “The darkness was intense and a few minutes after I reached the deck the electric lights went out. At. that time there were still hundreds of pas sengers below trying to grope their way through the darkened corridors to the companionway and reach the deck. Moßt of them went down with the ship, for the corridors below filled right after the explosion of the boilers “I leaped overboard in despair just before the ship went down and man aged to find a bit of wreckage to w-hich 1 clung.” • The gray dawn revealed the govern ment steamers Lady Evelyn and Eu reka near the scene of the disaster and hastening to aid. Some of those in the water tried to swim to the Eureka as she neared the point where the Empress had gone down One woman, wearing only an undervest, Bwam to the Lady Evelyn, and was helped on board, but died of exhaustion soon afterwards. The work oi’ rescue still was going on when the sun arose In a cloudless sky. Men and women were clinging to spars and bits of broken planks. Many of the survive rs were injured. Some had broken legs others fractured arms and still others had been injured Inter nally In that last, mad rush to get away from the sinking liner. Women clinging with one hand to little ones, while with the other they tried to keep clutch to pieces of wreck age. were picked up by the lifeboats and carried on hoard the rescuing ves sels. Captain Kendall, dazed and unable to give any co'ierent account of the loss of his ship, was found clinging to a broken spar. J. W. Langley, rancher, of Canford, B. C., went down with the ship, but held his breath, and, coming to the surface, found a piece of wreckage and clung to it until picked up. One of the survivors, in explaining the quickness with which the Empress of Ireland went down, said: ocean with not another smokestack in sight, flames burst out. The w.reless operator, unmindful of his danger, kept clicking and clicking, and just as the boat was going down, help ar rived aud tne 12S passengers aboard were? saved. Then came ihe Kentucky in 1910. In the same year 19 were sared in the Koenigen Luise. Death was cheated in the instance o!' the burn ing freighter. Templeroore, when all on boare., 544, were saved. Following clcee on this recoi’d, the of which there were enough to ac commodate a vsrr much larger num ber of people than those on board, in cluding the passengers and crew. “That such an accident should be possible in the St Lawrence arid to a vessel of the class of the Empress of Ireland, with every possible precau tion taken b;r the owners to Insure safety for the jiassengers *nd the ves sel, is deploiabls. The saddest fea ture of the disaster Is. of course, the great loss of life, and the Lc-cr+felt sympathy ct everybody connected "The collier, being only something over 3,000 tons, did not reach up even to the upper or topmost deck of our hull. Her bow cut under the upper deck and took a peeling off the side of our ship that allowed the water to rush into the lower decks. Then the liner heeled over, and even those in the superstructure deck rooms had nq chance to save themselves. Hundreds of, them must have been dumped out of their berths and slammed against the walls with stunning force.” Kendall Blames Collier. Rimouskl, Que., June l.—Capt Har ry G. Kendall of the Empress of Ire land blames the commander of the collier Storstad for the sinking of the liner. Before the coroner’s jury Sat urday he told how the Empress dropped its pilot Thursday night at Father Point, near which the disaster occurred. “We then proceeded full speed,” continued Capt. Kendall. After pass ing Rock point gas buoy I sighted the steamer Storstad, it then being clear. “The Storstad was then about one point, twelve degrees, on my star board bow. At that time I saw a slight fog bank coming gradually from the land and knew it was going to pass between the Storstad and myself. The Storstad was about two miles away at that time. Blows Whistle as Warning. “Then the fog came and the Stor stad’s lights disappeared. I rang full speed astern on my engines and stopped my ship. “At the same time I blew three short blasts on the steamer’s whistle, meaning (I am going full speed astern.) The Storstad answered with the whistle, giving me one prolonged blast. “I then looked over the side of my ship into the water and I saw my ship was stopped. I stopped my engines and blew two Ion? blasts, meaning ‘My ship was underway but stopped and has no way upon her.’ He answered me again with one prolonged blast. The sound was then about four points upon by starboard bow. Lights Appear From Gloom. "It was still foggy. About two min utes afterward I saw his red and green lights. He would then be about one ship’s length* away from me. I shouted to him through the megaphone to go full speed astern, as I saw that the col lision w'as Inevitable; at the same time I put my engine full speed ahead with my helm hard aport, with the object of avoiding, If possible, the shock. Al most at the same timo he came right in and cut the Empress down in a line between the funnels. “I shouted to the Storstad to keep full speed ahead to All the hole he had made. He t: v ?n backed away. The ship began to fill and listed over rap idly. When the Storstad struck the Empress I had stopped my engines. Should Have Heard Cali. “What was the cause of the collis ion?” asked the coroner. “The Storstad running into the Em press of Ireland, which was stopped," answered Kendall. Capt. Kendall, in answer to a ques tion by a juror said that when he shouted to the Storstad’s captain to stand fast he received no answer. It was Impossible for him not to have been heard; he added. “I shouted five times; I also shouted ‘Keep ahead,’ ” said Capt. Kendall, “and if he did not hear that he should have done it, as a seaman should have known that.” “There was wind?” “It was still. When he backed away I shouted to him to stand’ by. 1 did not hear any explosion, but when a ship goes down like that there is bound to be a great deal of air, and the air pressure causes that.” Not His Fault, Says Andersen. Montreal, Que., June 1. —With its bows crumpled in and twisted around at an acute angle to port, and with a gap showing on the port side only a foot or so above the water line, the Norwegian collier Storstad, which rammed the liner Empress of Ireland, limped into the harbor. A few minutes later a warrant oj arrest, taken out by the Canadian Pai cific railway, was nailed to its maim mast by order of W. Simpson Walker, K. C., register of the Quebec admir* alty. Subsequently a statement based on Capt. Andersen’s report, as well aa the reports of other officers, was given out. , According to the ;captain and offl* contrary to what has been stated by the captain of the Empress of Ire* land, the Storstad did not back awayi after the collision. On the It steamed ahead in an efTort to keep its bows in the hole it had dug into the side of the Empress. Denies Vessel Moved Away. The Empress, however, according to the Storstad’s officers, headed away and bent the Storstad’s bow over at an acute angle to port. After that the Empress was hidden from the view of the Storstad, and, despite the f'i-:* that the Storstad kept its whist's blowing, it could not locate the Empress until the cries of some of the victims iu the water were heard. Cap"- Andersen denied that he a mile or so away from the Em press after his vessel struck the liner. The Storstad had not moved, he said It was the Empress which had changed position, he declared. According to the report made by Capt. Andersen tc the owners, immedi ately the collision occurred, he heard Capt. Kendall 6hout, calling on him not to pull away. “I won’t,” shouted the Storstad’s captain, as loud as he could. After that the Empress disappeared from the Storstad s view. Lexington was caught in a hurricane unprepared. All were saved by the help the "S. O. S." summoned.

London, May 30. —The Ixmdon morn ing papers In commenting editorially on the disaster call for a thorough in vestigation as to whether tha bulk heads were closed, and, if so, how was It that the most modern system of watertight compartments failed to keep the ship from sinking? The claim for the Empress of Ire land will be the heaviest suffered by the Lloyds underwriters since the sinking of the Titanic. It is expected that the disaster will give a serious cl:eck to the scheme for establishing a Canadian Lloyds, with a view of re ducing the rates charged in London for insuring vessels navigating the St. Lawrence, Statistics show thac the underwrit ers have consistently lost money on such voyages, owing to the dargera of the river and the prevalence of fogs and Ice. The Times, In an editorial, con siders that nothing could have saved the Empress of Ireland, considering the nature of the collision, but asks: "What was the Storstad doing to run into the Empress of Ireland with such suddenness and violence?" a conference on city planning in To ronto, telegraphed the gove-utr gen eral of Canada as follows: "On behalf of those Americans who have just returned from the city plan ning conference at Toronto and to whom the hospitality of Canada, has so generously been given 1 extend deep est sympathy to you and to the Cana dian people upon your tragic loss of today.” Haughtiness lives under the same roof as solitude. —Plato. weight.
