wrecked 79 kilometers out of Juarex j
at 9:50 and the wreckage burned. j
So far as known, none of the passen- ,
gers or train crew were killed outright,
but it is feared that the mail clerk, N.
Varela, perished in the flames, which
destroyed hrk car and Its contents. j
A ffw seconds after the wreck oc- i
curred Varela was seen In his car by
some of those who were looicing ior in- s
jured, and was offered help, which he j
declined. Later, however when a cen- ,
sus of sun Ivors was- taken, he could
r.ot be found. The officials 01 tne
road believe he burned to death. j
All Are Injured, i
Of the 47 adult passengers and some I
half dozen babes In arms on board, few ;
escaped injury of some kind bruises
from being bumped when the train

most part were slight.

That more than 1300 persons, passengers and crew, had gone down with tha
giant liner is the belief that has grown into almost a positive conviction as hour
after hoar has passed and no additional favorable news has come.
It is estimated that approximately 140 members of the crew were saved,
their presence to man the lifeboats being required to insure the safety of the pas
sengers. An estimate Of 400 steerage passengers saved completes the total of S68
which the Carpathia has made known she has on board.
As the lists indicate, the great majority of these are women. The names of
only 79 men rescued have been given in the lists telegraphed from the Carpathia,
