POSITIVE THAT AT LEAST .1302 LIVES WERE
LOST WHEN THE TITANIC STRUCK
ONE OF THE LATEST REPORTS IS
THERE ARE ONLY 705 SURVIVORS
This Comes From the Cunarder Franconia Which Re
verts Being in Communication With the Rescue Ship
and Would Mean a Greater Loss of Lif e No Hope
for John Jacob Astor, Major Butt and Other- Notables
in Disaster. -
By Associated Press.
New. York, April 17. The roll of the saved from the Titanic disaster to
night seems complete. Practically every attending circumstance In the trans-
mission of news from the Carpathla woes to show that only 328 of the 610
cabin passengers on the Titanic are safe on the rescue ship. The 282 cabin
passengers whose names did not appear on the lists. sent ashore yesterday
by wireless probably raust.be conceded as among the 1,312 or more lives lost.
Thousands of hopeful hearts were tutned to despairing ones when the United
States scout cruiser Chester sent a wireless ashore this afternoon that she Is
In communication with the Carpathla and asked for-a full list of the first and
second cabin survivors and that the, Carpathla reported ail the names had
already been sent ashore. The remainder of the saved passengers were In
the steerage and members of the , crew. - . i
From the Carpathla, which was approximately 600 miles from New York
this morning and which. It Is expected, if she keeps up the 13 knots an hour,
will reach here by eight o'clock tomorrow night, came a new report of tho
number of survivors aboard. ..,.-
Through the Cunarder Franconia, which established wireless communica
tion, with the Carpathla. came a message which included this statement. "She
has a total of 705 survivors aboard." The previous statement from the Car
pathla had 'been that she carried 868 survivors.
Communication was had with the Carpathla tonight through the scout
cruiser Chester and the shore wireless station at Siaconsett. Through the
Chester came slowly the names of the saved passengers of the third cabin
of the Titanic' '
- The very sending of these could but help confirm the fateful belief tht
there were no more' names of the first and second cabin passengers to send.
Thus was left the possibility that the names of well known men, such as John
Jacob Astor, Wm. T. Stead, Isador Straus, Major Butt and BenJ. Guggenheim
could have been omitted in the transmission of names. That these men had
gone down with the ship there remained hardly a doubt.
. After more than one hundred names had been relayed by the Chester to
the Newport station conditions made It Impossible for the operators to read
the wireless flashes- For this reason the operators on the cruiser suspended
for a, time and will resume later if conditions permit.
t . ' ;.' , ' ', ANOTHER" REPORT OF GREATER LOSS.
. . The Camperdown . wireless station at. Halifax today sent the Associated
Frees the following-dispatch : ,' .'
"W are now .In communication with Carpathla ' and. In position to an
nounce offlctally that the Titanic struck van,.jEnornjoui berg ,ind, sunk;, over ,
2,000 lost; 700 survivors, mostly women, on Carpathla." , ,
" The attention of the Camperdown station, was. at once called to the o'o
' vlou error In figures, which would give the total of lost and survivors at l.
700, whereas the total number of passengers and crew. Is about , 2.200. In re
. ply to this inquiry the following further explanation was received from Kail
fax: "TheMarcbnl station reports that nothing authentic regarding list 1s
' known on board Carpathla, but the steamer Franconia in relaying the mes
sages from the Carpathla. says that the total number of saved Is only 710.
There is no. list of misslnsr on the Cunarder and only a rough estimate of her
total passenger list. There probably were more than 2,200' on ship, as quite
( a number boarded her at Cherbourg." ,
The estimates of 2.200 onboard the Titanic have embraced the sailings
from all ports, including Cherbourg, as far as . the- company officials have
been able to give the information. ; ...
