MOURNERS SEEK SHIP VICTIMS Many Anxious Thousands Pass Through Morgue, TRAGIC SCENES ENACTED Strong Men Flee Weeping From the Temporary Morgue of the Eastland Victims, Unable to Bear Up Under Their Sorrow. Chicago, July 2G. Stunned by tho blow of the steamship Eastland dis aster Saturday, Chicago Is yot grop ing among Its unclaimed dead In ef forts to Identify the victims. "In tho inmo of God, I nsk you to go away avd lot those seeking for relatives and friends como In and identify their dead." With those words Coroner Peter Hoffman ad dressed the thousands who stood out side tho Second Regiment armory when tho doors were thrown open. Twonty at a time, tho anxious seek ers were admitted to tho great death chamber. Whilo those on tho outside, waited their turn, tragic scenes In endless number wore enacted within tho walls of tho massive emergency morgue. Mothers, sisters, and daugh ters walked slowly between tho long Hno3 of dead, hoping and yet not hop ins;. Time and again a slnglo scream told of the discovery of somo loved ono, while often there wns only a sup pressed, choking, hcart-hreaklns sob as tho mother collapsed bcaldo the body of her child. Strong men, hardened to tragedy, broko down and fled weoplng from tho building, utiablo to bear up under this greatest tragedy of all. Othor men, finding a wlfo, mother, or sister among tho dead, collapsed llko women. Still others moved about tho great morguo aB though In a trance. Hero and thero an hysterical laugh told of some mind strained beyond tho break ing point. Tragedy was written on every faco, tragedy that defies de scription. All through tho night and tho day scores of firemen worked In tho river, where tho great hull of tho lake steamer lies on Us side, taking from tho dark waters, bodies of men, worn on and children, whoso lives wore cut off without warning. When bodies wero Identified at tho temporary morguo In tho Second Regiment armory, they wero taken away by relatives, and almost Imme diately the places vacated wero filled ly other bodies, brought from tho river by the police ambulances. Other thousands hurried toward tho r.vor to watch tho work of rescue, bat found their way barred by a strong lino of policemen, who hold them back. Tho larger nurabbr of bodies recov ered vero taken out of tho water about tuo middle of tho river, and op posite tho submerged part of tho hur ricane do. On many thousands, however, tho awfulness of tho calamity seemed to rest lightly. Other steamship lines, filled their sailing dates, and excur sion boats left dockB which wero within a stono's throw of tho unfortu nate Eastland. Looking from the decks down Into the waters where hundreds of other jexcurslonlsts perished only a few hours ago, pleasure loving Chicago was unafraid. It filled the othor boats and with music and dancing, probably carefree and without sadness, sailed away. Other men saw n chance to thrive. Owners of automobile trucks for 10 or in cents a head, carried passengers over the Clark street bridge, from which vantage point they could look at tho disaster. TTndertaklng rooms In tho downtown district and those close In on tho north and west sides, wore filled with mourners. Bodies which wero there had been Identified and had beeu turned over to undertakers to bo pre pared for burial. Harry C. Molr said that If tho East land had taken on ballast In tho river she would nevor have been ahlo to move with tho load of passengers, but would havo grounded. He said It was customary for the Eastland, on all her trips, to go to tho deeper wat ers of the harbor before taking on sufllclont ballast to make a vessel en tirely safe. Real Estate Deal. Mr. C. L.
