Man Among the Six Persona Who
Periehed in the Accident.
New York, Jan. 26.—The dramatic
sea story of the wrecking of the White
Star liner Republic by the steamer
Florida of Lloyd's Italian line, in
which six lives were lost and four
people injured, came to a close when
the big steamship Baltic of the White
Star line came into port bearing on
board more than 1,600 passengers of
the sunken Republic and the crippled
Florida. Stories told by the Repub
lic's passengers show that the trans
fer of passengers from the Florida to
the Baltic in the dirk hours of Satur
day night came perilously near result
ing in a riot of the 500 Italian steer
age passengers on the Florida, who
believed that their vessel was in im
minent danger of sinking. Only the
efforts of the officers aided by several
of the Republic's passengers, quieted
the frightened men, who sought to be
the first to board the lifeboats.
The officers of the Baltic report the
deaths of Mrs. Eugene Lynch of Bos
ton and W. J.
of Langdon, N.
D., together with four negro sailors
whose names are not known. The
bodies of Mrs. Lynch and Mr. Mooney
were placed in hermetically sealed
caskets, which sank with the steamer
Republic off Nantucket.
Dr. J. J. Marsh, physician on board
the Republic, gave the most graphic
story of the accident on the big liner.
Dr. Marsh said:
"I was in my cabin and, hearing
three short whistles, knew that some
thing was wrong and turned out. I
had hardly got to my feet when the
crash came. There walj one heavy
thud and then the engines stopped.
Half a minute later the electric lights
went out and when I opened my state
room I found myself in darkness.
Passengers Show Pluck.
"The saloon rapidly filled with wo
men and children, half dressed, but
everybody did as they were told and
there was no panic. Let me say now
they were thoroughly Anglo-American
people for pluck. I went on deck and
saw the lights of the Florida through
the fog. Captain Sealby gave orders
to get the lifeboats ready and in the
meantime all the passengers came up
on the upper deck. It was then that
Captain Sealby said to them:
steward on bon.rd the Florida by the
name of Woodward who sustained a
fracture at the base of the skull. Mrs.
Griggs, who was injured, had a mirac
ulous escape. She was found under
a pile of debris and for a time it was
believed she was lost."
The transfer of pastengers from the
Republic tc the Florida was effected
without incident, but when it was
found that the Florida had insufficient
accommodations for the large number
on board and that she would make
slow time to New York the order to
retransfer all passengers to the Bal
tic, which had arrived several hours
oefore, was given. The night was
dark and the fog hung thick over the
troubled sea. Twenty lifeboats were
used to carry the paster gers from the
Florida, which lay at distances vary
ing 200 yards to 500 yards from the
Twelve Gettinq
Hours Occupied
Aboard the Baltic.
New York. Jan. 26.—11. J. Hover of
Spokane, \Ya.sh., one of the Repub
lic's passengers, described the trans
fer of the passengers from the Repub
lic and later from the Florida to the
Baltic. The transler of scantily
dressed and frightened men and wo
men from the Florida lasted twelve
hours. During the night the search
lights of the Baltic illuminated the
sea, making a weird picture as boat
load after boatload were safely gotten effect wn
on board the Baltic. Two of the Re
public's passengers tumbled into the
sea while being placed in a boat, but
were promptly rescued.

were stove by the bow of the Florida,
which withdrew from the gap almost
•nstantly and vanished in the mist
astern, leaving one of her anchors in
the wreckage of the demolished state
rooms of the Republic.
The impact and withdrawal were so
swift that no one aboard the Republic
had a chance to identify the steam
ship In half an hour, however, sum
moned by the distress blasts of the
Repv.blL-, the Florida picked her way
through the murk and came along
side. Captain Sealby had his own
boats lowered and in these and those
of the Florida all the passengers of
the wounded liner wore put aboard
the Florida. This operation took two
hours in a placid sea.
Injured Man on the Florida*
Among the wounded who wer# fiat
ca the Italian liner was Eugene
Lync'.i, whose wife had been killed in
their stateroom on the Republic. Mr.
Lynch's leg was broken in three
places and he was otherwise injured.
As it was considered .unsafe to trans
fer him to the Baltic he was left in
charge of the Florida's surgeon.
Mr. Hover said that there was very
little panic aboard the Republic, al
though many came on deck in their
night clothes, and that the discipline
of the crew was prrfcct.
The collision, he (-aid, occurred be
tween 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning,
when every one was in bed. A great
many passengers were thrown from
their bunks by the crash and many
rushed wildly on deck in their bare
feet. With the return of the Florida
the transfer of passengers began.
Carrying out the rigid rule of the sea
the women were placfd in the boats
first and in two hour? all were safely
on board the Florida. That ship was
terribly crowded, however, and at the
conference between the captains of
the Florida and the Baltic it was de
cided that anothfr transfer of pas
sengers was necessary. Accordingly
this second hazardous undertaking
was begun. While the sea had been

went to their staterooms to get their
clothes. Mr. Lynch is on board the
