The submariro a: caused the catastrophe is betve, be one of the powerful V clasp f..n which are held responsible for tas ' of the steamship Falaba and other ; senger and freight ships In British I ters. The suddenness of the attack is held responsible for the terrific loss of life, as the deadly missiles came without warning while the passengers were dining, and the Lusitaula disappeared beneath the waves within fifteen min utes. What Survivors Say. Survivors say that the first torpedo struck the hull of the ship directly in the space occupied by the engine room. CAPTAIN TURNER AND SALOON OP VESSEL. The second hit her cargo section, and is thought to have exploded an enor mous quantity of ammunition said to have been stored there. At any rate, several explosions occurred as the steamer listed and sank bow first Survivors united In declaring no warning was given. So desperate were conditions that only ten lifeboats could be launched. Indescribable scenes were enacted as the helpless passengers struggled for their lives in the sea. The official British press bureau in London gave out the following report from the admiral in command at Queenstown: "The torpedo boats, tugs and armed trawlers which went to the rescue of the Lusitanla passengers from Queens town are all In, with the exception of the Heron. Few First Clan Passengers Saved. "Only a few of the first class pas: aengers were saved. It is understood that they thought the ship would float. She sank In from fifteen to twenty-five minutes.

GERMAN EMBASSY. t W"aiNGT()J. D C APRIL 32. 191.. IHH GERMANS' WARNING AD. have been thirteen Americana. The tragedy took place about ten miles off the Old Head of Klnsale. As soon as the I.usitanla's wireless call for assistance was received at Queens town Admiral Coke, In command of the naval station, dispatched to the scene all assistance available. The tugs Warrior. Stormcock and Ju lia, together with five trawlers and the local lifeboat In tow of a tug. were hurried out to sea. Weather conditions aided in the work of rescue, hut the suddenness witu which the liner plunged to the bottom of St (Jeorge's channel made it impos sible to get off all on board. From the reiwrts thus far received, officers and crew acted with the ut most bravery. In the greatest sea dis aster since tbe sinking of the Titanic they went expeditiously about their task of getting as many as possible of the passengers away before the inevi table moment when the great hulk they trod must make Its final dive to destruction. Meanwhile aid had started from a dozen directions, and soon the boats were picked up by steam vessels and smaller craft But before this hap pened the stricken linpr, -with so many human souls still aboard, had gone down. It is known that among so many victims there are many Americans, and in the view of those in authority here the death of these presents to the Unit ed States the greatest problem she has faced during the present war. Bodies Brought Ashore. One hundred bodies were brought ashore at Queenstown on the Cunard wharf from the rescue tug Stormcock and other steamers, which brought over 000 survivors, it is stated that these persons died of exhaustion while on their way to Queenstown from the scene of the disaster. The bodies were removed to the town hall. When the survivors reached the wharves doctors and ambulances were waiting, and pitiful scenes were wit nessed there. There was u large pro portion of women among the arrivals. Their clothes were soaked with water They were hatless and shoeless, and many were auable to walk. Most of the survivors had suffered severe Injuries to their legs and other parts of their bodies, and many had to be placed upon stretchers and removed to the quarters which had been spe daily prepared for them. What the Captain Says. Captain William T. Turner of the Lusitanla expressed no fear for the safety of his ship when he sailed from New York. "1 wonder what the Germans will do next ?" was his only comment when he read the advertisement sent out by the German embassy, warning Ameri cans that they sailed at "their owu risk" on British ships, which were lia hie to destruction in the war zone. When Captain Turner was questioned regarding tiie ship being met off the Irish coast by British torpedo destroy ers he replied: "The admiralty never trouble to send out to Lieet tbe Lusltnnia. They only look after the ships that are bringing the big guns over, like the Orduna and the Transylvania, last voyage. On the last eastward trip I uever saw a war shii t'ut w rbrt T4verno-l" uue or tne cuwnu r.uiv?r "!" was, on the I.usltaniii on her last voyage, continued Captain Turner's statement that the liner had not sighted n single warship on her voyage. Captain Turner stood at bis post on the bridge until his ship went down and was rescued three hours afterward wearing a life belt, according to D A, Thomas, the Cardiff (Wales! coal mag. nate. "Our course was shaped for shorn immediately after the torpedo Btruels." he said. "There is a difference of opin ion as to whether the steamship was struck by more than otie torpedo, but 1 heard only oue." WATCHED TORPEDO AS IT STRUCK SHIP. Ernest Cowper, Toronto Writer, De scribes Attack, Seen From Desk. A sharp look out for submarines was kept aboard the Lusitanla as she ap proached the Irish coast, according to Ernest Cowper. a Torouto newspaper man, who was among the survivors landed at Queenstown. He said that after the ship was tor pedoed there was no panic among the crew, but that they went about the work of 'getting passegera into the boats in a prompt and efficient manner "As we neared the coast of Ireland," said Mr. Cowper. "we all joined in the lookout for a possible attack by a sub marine was the sole topic of conversa tion. "I was chatting with a friend at the Tail about 2 o'clock when suddenly I caught a glimpse of the conning tower of a submarine about 1.000 yards dis taut I immediately called my friend's attention to It. Immediately we both saw tbe track of a torpedo followed almost instantly by an explosion. Por tions of splintered hull were sent fly Ing Into the air, and then another tor pedo struck. The ship began to list to starboard. "Tbe crew at once proceeded to get the passengers into boats in an orderly, prompt and elllcient manner. Miss Helen Smith appealed to me to save her. I placed her In a boat and saw her safely away. 1 got Into one of the last boats to leave. "Some of tbe boats could not be launched, as the vessel was sinking. There was a large number of women and children in tie second cabin. For ty of the children were less than a year old." From Interviews with passengers It appears that when the torpedoes burst thev sent forth sjiffocatlng fumes. Quits. "Your boys were in, my appletree again," observed the first suburbanite. "If you say anything more about it," declared the second ditto, "I'll send you the doctor's bill." Philadelphia Ledger. Name in Trunk.
