Astor, One of World's Richest Men, is Not Aboard the Steamer, Which is Fast Nearing Port. ALL HOPE GIVEN UP FOR OTHER NOTABLE MEN There are Conflicting Reports as to the Exact Number of Titanic Survivors on the Incoming Rescue Steamer, Preparations for Arrival. YOUNG WOMAN ARRESTED. New York, April IS. The Carpathia with RfiS survivors of the sunken Titanic, is due at her dork at I a. m. .to-morrow, as she was off Nantucket light ship, 106 miles away, this morning. The wireless report that there were only T05 survivors of the Titanic aboard the Carpathia still persists, "but no word, so far as learned, has come from the. f arpathia withiji the last day, giving the exact number of persons aboard. The wireless reports indit'.ite that only thirteen lifeboats were found to be avail able for the work of rescue instead of , twenty as had been approximated. All hope has been Riven up that Col onel .fohn Jacob Astor, Isador Straus, Benjamin Guggenheim, George 1). Wide r.er, Major Archibald Butt, Henry B. Harris and Charles M. Hays, president Monday was near the scene of the Ti tanic disaster", which fact aroused hopes of her having survivors of the Titanic on board, until a denial was received from her, entered Halifax harbor at 7 o'clock last evening.. The Parisian as visited upon her ar rival by the port physician, who on landing' shortly afterwards, brought the information tliat the steamer had no further details of the Titanic disaster. Captain Hayes, when communicated with, reported that at 10:30 o'clock (Parisian's time! on Sunday night he was in communication with the 'I itanic, being 1.50 itiiles distant. The Titanic was then safe. The operator on the 1'arisian retired soon after, and nothing vas known of the disaster until Mon day morning. The weather on Sunday night was clear and starlight. It i his belief that the Titanic struck a low-lying iceberg not more than ten feet out of water and seventv feet sub of the Grand Trunk railroad, were saved. meiged. With the ship going at high The Carpathia w ireless operator sent , speed, such a herg would rip the iMittorn word this morning that Colonel Astor was not aboard and he didn't know whether Benjamin Guggenheim or Major Putt were aboard. The White Star of fices here received information that Mr. Widener, the Philadelphia capitalist, was not aboard the Carpathia. ' The Carpathia is wirelessing many private messages from the survivors, and despatches to tlie White Star line were constantly being received during the jirorning; but no word came in re sponse to the repeated requests for de tails of the accident. Vice-President Franklin of the White Star line said this afternoon: "We are not getting a thing by wireless from the Carpathia. We heard from her several times, but there was not the slightest explanation, of the Titanic's sinking or anything pertaining to the disaster rn any way in any wireless messages we have received." Practically every attending circum stance in the transmission of news from the Carpathia goes to show that only 328 of the 610 cabin passengers of the Titanic are safe on the rescue ship. The 282 cabin passengers whose names have not appeared in the lists sent ashore Tuesday by wireless must prob ably be conceded as numbered among the, 1,312 lives which the collision of the mammoth new steamer with an ice berg off the Newfoundland banks Sun day night is believed to have taken. Thousands of hopeful hearts were turned to despairing ones when the Lnited States scout cruiser Chester, wirelessed ashore late yesterday that she had been in communication with the Carpathia and had asked repeatedly for the full list of the first and second cab in survivors, and that the rescue ship ri ported that all the names had al ready been sent ashore. The remainder .of 040 persons saved were passengers in the steerage or members of the crew. Special arrangements have been made to rare for the survivors when the Car pathia docks. The customs regulations have lieen suspended, and the police re serves will be etationed about the pier, so that only those who have friends or relatives among the survivors, with proper credentials, will be permitted on the pier. Taxicab and hotel accommo dations have ben provided for the first and second cabin passengers, and the steerage passengers will be cared for by the immigration department. HEARD FROM TITANIC. open, awl this prohaoly accounts tor l.er going down so quickly after she at i tick. Marguerite Monahan, Who Saya She Is From Cabot. Burlington, April IS. Marguerite Monahan, a 20-year-old girl who says her home is in Cabot, was arrested yesterday forenoon by the police for playing a pretty little game of robbing th pockets of school children in the city. At the time of her arrest she was in the grammar school and had just completed operations but it was leanied lkter that she had also taken money at the high school. The girl was seen in the hallway of the school Tuesday afternoon and said that she was in search of a girl b the name of Irene Miles. She was told that no such person was in the school and went away, but after she bad gone it was learned that a number of pockets in the coats had been raid ed and numerous small amounts in change taken. Yesterday morning she was again discovered there, and as mon ey had again disappeared, she was tak en into a room and the police notified. Officer Miles was dispatched and. upon nuestioning the girl, induced her to ad mit that she hud taken some money, ' not more than a dollar," because she was without funds. Later, at the po lice station, she admitted much more and Chief Russell learned of the thefts at the high school. The girl came here a wk or ten days ago and has since been without visible means of support. She said that n man had given her five dollars but this she had lost. She was heartily sick of her adventures here and in the afternoon said that if she could get back home it would be all that she desired. CASE OF SMALLPOX FOUND AT RANDOLPH WIRELESS FROM VICTIMS. Caronia Picked Up the "Help" Message from Doomed Vessel. Queenstown, April 18. The Cunard liner Caronia, which arrived here last evening, reports having received a wire less from the Titanic at 4:39 o'clock (mean time) Monday morning, stating that she had been in collision with an iceberg, was in sinking condition and would require immediate assistance. The Caronia was then 700 miles dis tant from the Titanic and therefore was unable to reach her, but sent wireless messages to other steamers near the scene. The Caronia encountered no ice. Mrs. John B. Thayer, Wife of Railroad Vice-President, Safe. Philadelphia, April 18. Grave doubts exist here regarding the safety of John 11. Thayer, second vice-president of the Pennsylvania railroad, who. with his wife and son, was on the Titanic. A wireless message received here, signed by Mrs. Thayer, says: 'Mack, Margaret and I are safe. No news of Mr. Thayer.'' Margaret is her maid and Jack her son. The message came from the Carpathia, via Halifax. It is possible the message was filed before all the boats of the Titanic had been picked up. Mr. Thayer's name was in the list of survivors. AIL ON CARPATHIA. Captain of Parisian So Reports at Allan Line Offices. Montreal. April IS. Manager Hannah of the Allan line received yesterday aft ernoon the following message from the captain of the Parisian: "As far as I know, all the survivors of the Titanic are aboard the Carpathia."

The house was then quarantined, and Dr. Piulev conferred with the state board of health, which sent Or. Ivadd here. The latter pronounced the disease small pox. The premises of Dr. Eaton liave been in quarantine since the first suspicion of the disease, and it is not thought that any but memliors of the family were exposed. Miss Annie Scott, a ni.rse. who is acquainted with the dis ease, has lieen called in. Dr. Katon is not at present very ill and it is not thought he will be. Dr. Eaton goes to White River Junction and Lebanon every week to treat patients, and it is supposed that hr. contracted the disease on a trip there.

SHRINERS PLAN TRIP. It Is Expected That 27 from Twin Cities Will Go to Montreal. At an informal gathering of local Shriners last evening, plans were dis cussed and completed for the trip to Montreal on the occasion of the annual ceremonial session of Karnak temple. A. A. O. N. M.

From the number of Shriners who have already expressed a desire to attend, it is thought that as many as twenty-seven Barre and Montpelier members of Mpunt Sinai tem ple will make up the party. Of this number twenty-four Will go from Barre.

Crowell of Eastern avenue, narrowly es-f caped death at 8:4.5 this forenoon, when she attempted to cross the street in front of an electric car near the Hed ding Methodist church just as the car cume down Washington street. Believ-' in,'f that the child intended to wait until his car passed. Motorman Jerue did not apply the brakes at first. Acting, evi dently, under a sudden impulse, the child made for the opposite side of the track with the car only ten feet away. She was swept under the fender and when the wheels were finally brought to a standstill, the child's head was resting against the "underslung." The motor man and Conductor Somerville carried, her into the office of Dr. C. F. Camp warhy and her parents were summoned together with Dr. Joe W. Jackson. She was taken to the City hospital in an automobile a few moments later. Persons aboard the car are reluctant to attach any blame on the traction em p!oyes in charge of the car. It i said that several feet above the point where tin child was run over, the motorman momentarily slowed down his car to escape possible collision with a delivery team coming out of Spaulding street, I'm this reason the wheels were mov ing slowly when the accident occurred. Motorman Jerue saw the child with another little girl companion standing near the track as if waiting for the car to pass. The Crowell girl carried an umbrella and this may have affected hci judgment in measuring the nearness of the car. Her companion remained safely away from the tracks after first sighting the car. The Crowell child, however, essayed to cross too late and went under tlie fender. The motorman promptly applied the ! rakes and sot them fast. Owing to the ruin, the rails were unusually slippery and the car proceeded at least thirty feet, according trt the estimates of sev eral spectators, before coming to a, sUndstill. The unfortunate child was dragged this distance, but the motor projecting from-the bottom of the car piobably prevented the 'wheels from passing over the body. Persons who witnessed the accident say that had the ear advanced another foot, the help less victim would have lost a limb by the sharp wheel against which she was rest in tr. When rescued from her perilous position, the girl was crying lustily and retained consciousness throughout the ordeal. At the hospital this noon it was stated that the child sustained a slight fracture f the skull and bruises about the head and face. On the right side of the head i scalp wound was inflicted and the ear I considerably lacerated. A second small er scalp wound was revealed on the left side of the head, and there were minor bruises i;bout the face. The patient suffered keenly from her injuries, al though consciousness never left her from the fir-t. Physicians at the hospital expressed a belief that the little girl would ultimately recover from the ef fects of the accident, but several days must elapse before her exact condition lan be ascertained. To-day she com- plained of pains extending through her shoulders, and it may be that bones were broken, although the examination led the doctors to believe she has escaped injuries of this serious nature.
