Steamship "Empress of Ireland" Rammed in Fog on St, Lawrence River and Plunges Down Quickly -Hundreds of Passengers Trapped in Their Beds --Big Vessel Sinks in Sight of Land-Few Women Among Survivors. Rimouski Que., May 29. Sinking in ninety feet of water within fifteen minutes after be ing rammed amidships in the upper reachers of the St. Law rence river early to-day, the Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Ireland carried down with her more than 900 passengers and crew. Of the 1367 persons on board only 433 are known to have been saved, making the probable death list 934. Looming up through the river mists as the Empress Ireland was laying to waiting for the fog to lift or day to break, the Dan ish collier Storstad crashed bow on into the side of the big Ca nadian liner, striking her about midway of her length and rip ping her side open clear to the stern. The crash occured not far from the shore off Father Point, 140 miles from Quebec, which the Empress of Ireland left yes terday afternoon bound for Liv erpool, and ten miles from this point on the St. Lawrence. In reality, therefore, although the liner was heading for the sea and the collier coming in from it, the disaster was not one of the ocean but of the river. In sight of shore-in landlocked waters. As soon as the ship's crew re covered from the shock of the collision and it was seen that the liner had received a vital blow, a wireless "S. O. S." call was sounded. The hurried appeal was picked up by the government mail ten dert Lady Evelyn here, and the government pilot bo:tt Eureka at Father Point, and both set out to the rescue. So deep was the hurt of the Empress, however, and so f.tst the inrush of water that long before either of the rescue b at.s c)uld r :11h th! se0me tiate !iur iut º lº-:e d, a l, ifo)t)t 1!1.' i i'Lft - )nc) the steamship, oiuotying up less than a third of those wvl) had set sail on her, were to be fou:nd. TfII rest had sunk with the liner, had been crushed to death in the Storstad's impact, with her, or had been forced from expos ure in the ice-chilled waters to loosen their hold on bits of wreckage and had drowned,. Only a tew persons were picked un by the Storstad, which was badly crippled herself, and these were brought here by the collier, together with those saved by the Eureka and the Lady Evelyn. Twenty-two of the yes cued died frow injury or exl)s Uil F. 'The others, most of winom hii d jumiped into the boats or p luiiged into the water from the sinking liner scantily clad, were given such clothing as the town could supply, and later those that could travel were placed on board a train and started for Quebec, where they arrived to night. Accounts agree that in the brief space of time-not more than fourteen minutes--between the shock of the collision and the sinking of the liner there was little chance for systematic marshaling of the passengers. Indeed everything indicates that hundreds of those on the steam ship probably never reached the decks. Few women were among the saved, not more than a dozen the lists make it appear. "It all happened so quickly we did not really kno\t what was going on and nobody had time to cry 'Women first!' " one of the passengers told Capt Bellinger of the rescue boat Eureka. The stewards did not have time to rouse the peoole in their berths, the survivor added. "Those who heard the frenzied calls of the officers for the pas sengers to hurry on deck and rushed up, piled into the ,oats, which were lowered rapidly' and rowed away. Many who wait.+d to dress were drowned."
