0F1TTANIC SINKING
SURVIVORS OF THE ILL-FATED
STEAM SHIP,BIGGEST BUILT,
TELL OF THE ACCIDENT.
As Great Ship Went Down With 1600
Souls the Band Played "Nearer, My
God, to Tliee"-Captain Smith
Went Down With His Ship—Rich
and Poor Gave Way to Weaker Sex.
New York.— Soven hundred and 45
persons, mostly women, sick in heart
and body, wrote into the annals of mari
time history the loss of the biggest
steamship ever built by man.
They wore the survivors of tho White
Star liner Titanic, which sank, bow
foremost, with nearly 1600 souls aboard,
her captain at tho bridge, her colors
(lying nud her band pluying "Nearer
My God to Tliee, ' ' in 2000 fathoms of
water off the banks of Newfoundland
under the starlit skies at 2:20 a. in.,
April 15.
With
one voice they told of tlio
splendid heroism of those who remained
behind to find a watery grave that oth
ers might live.
Captain Smith died, they said, as a
gallant sailor should, aftor first having
[daced all tho women who would go
uboard the lifeboats. They were many
who staid behind to die in their hus
baud's arms.
From their narratives stand out in
bold relief the following facts:
Fifteen hundred and eighty-nine per
sons perished when the great ship went
down or died after a vain struggle
amid the mass of wreckage in the icy
water.
Six more died from exposure and ex
haustion after succor had reached them,
bringing the total death loss in the
greatest that ocean travel has
known, to 1595.
The Titanic was making 21 knots an
hour when she struck the iceberg.
No one at first thought she would
ever
sink.
She remained afloat more than two
hours.
The iceberg ripped open her hull be
low the water line.
Instant panic was averted by Cap
tain Smith's torse appeal to his crew:
"Bo British, my meu!"
A small number of steerage passeng
ers tried to rush for the lifeboats and
were held back by the crew and other
passengers.
Meu of wealth and world wide prom
inence, with hundreds more of obscurer
station, cliose to remain to die ou the
doomed vessel.
Many women refused to leave the
ship, but clung to their husbands, pre
ferring to face death with them.
The Titanic turned her nose to the
bottom when the last lifeboat was less
than a hundred yards away, reared her
stern high in the air and trembled for
a moment before seeking the bottom.
There were two explosions when the
in rushing waters reached her boilers.
When she Bank there was silence; a
moment later the cries and supplica
tions of dying men rose in chorus in
describable over the spot where she
went down. For hours the survivors
rowed in lifeboats over a calm sea in
bitter cold until the Carpathia picked
them up.
In the aftermath today of the disas
ter, principal developments were the
testimony of J. Bruce Ismay, managing
director of the White Star line, before
the senate investigating committee, and
the removal of surviving members of
the Titanic's crew aboard the Lapland.
Berg Ninety Feet High.
The Titanic struck an iceberg about
90 feet high, which ripped the liner's
sides open and made the watertight
compartments useless. While the ves

J. Bruce Isinay, managing director of
toe White Star line, who was one of the
few
prominent men who escaped with
their lives, is said by some of the pas
sengers to have been one of the first
to get into the lifeboats, but this is
denied by Mr. Isirav himself.
The "Unbelieveable" Happened.
The survivors of the Titanic, still suf
fering from exhaustion, arrived in New
York last night, releasing a series of
mimitivi'H so Jong mil numerous that
many arc yet untold.
[passengers arc unanimous tliat the "un
believeable " happened.
The voyage had been pleasant and
uneventful except for the fact that it
was being made on the largest vessel
that ever sailed and for the keen inter
est which the passengers took in the
daily bulletins of the speed. The Ti
iunic had been making good time and
all accounts agree that on the night of
the disaster she was apparently going
at her usual inte of from 21 to 25 knots
an hour.
Quartermaster Moody, who was at the
I helm, said the ship was making 21 knots
and that the officers were under orders
to keep up speed in the hope of mak
ing a record passage. These orders
were being carried out in the face of
the knowledge that the steamer was
in the vicinity of great icebergs sweep
ihg down from the north.
That very afternoon, according to
the record of the hydrographic office,
the Titanic had relayed to shore a wire
less warning from the steamer Amorikn
that an unusual field of pack ice nnd
icebergs menaced navigation oft the
banks.
"But it was a clear and starry
night,'' all the survivors declared, and
the great water sped through the quiet
seas with officers confident that even
though an iceberg should bo seen, the
vessel could bo controlled in ample time
and the passengers rested in full con
fidence that their temporary quarters in
the largest nnd most magnificent ves
sel ever constructed were as safe as
at their own firesides.
The
surviving
This confidence is emphasized in the
stories of nearly nil the survivors that
when the crash came there
was prac
tically no excitement. Many who felt
anxious enough to do on deck to inquire
what had happened were but little per
turbed when they learned that
ship "had-only struck an iceberg."
It nppeared to be a glancing blow
and at first there was no indication of
the
a serious accident. A group of men at
cards in the smoking room sent one of
their number to look out of the window
and when he came back with the an
nouncement that the boat had grazed
an iceberg, the party went on with the
game, but it was never finished. The
stoppage of the engines was noticed
more than the collision, the effpet being,
as one survivor put it, like the stopping
of a loud ticking clock.
The over-confident passengers were
not brought to the slightest realization
that the collision might mean serious
danger until the call ran through tho
ship, "all passengers on deck and with
life belts on."
Captain Smith, it is said, was not
on the bridge when the collision oc
curred, but when hurriedly summoned
by his first officer, he took charge of
what seemed a hopeless situation in a
manner which the passengers praise as
calm, resolute and effieient to the last.
Survivors of the sinking liner told
of hearing "Nearer, My God to Thee"
played as tho liner sank and some of
those in the lifeboats blended their
voices in the melody. Suddenly there
a piighty roar and the ship, already
half submerged, was seen.to buckle and
apparently break in two by the force of
an explosion caused when the water
reached the boilers. The bow poised
almost vertically in the air, when sud
denly it plunged out of sight.
With the last hope of seeing their
loved ones alive, many of the women in
the lifeboats seemed to be indifferent
whether they were saved or not. They
were nearly 1000 miles from land and
had no knowledge that a ship of
was speeding toward them. With no
provisions or water there seemed no

showed every consideration for the

in oipP that they might be made com

On the four days' cruise back to
New York many who had realized that
their experiences would be waited by
an anxious world, put their stories to
paper while their nerves were still at
tension from the disaster.
Carpathia Resumes Journey.
Less than 24 hours after the Cunard
line steamer Carpathia came in as a

Titnnic disaster she sailed for the
