Bravery and Good Behavior of Crew*
Praised—Something Wrong on
Florida's Bridge.
New York, Jan. 27—
Less than sev
enty-two hours after the crash be
tween the ocean liners Republic and
Florida off the Nantucket shoals,
which eventually sent the former to
the bottom and reduced the latter to
a state of staggering helplessness, the
survivors of this thrilling deep-sea
tragedy have found a haven at last.
At nightfall last night 1,650 pas
sengers from the two vessels were
safe in this port, brought here by the
Raltic, while nearing it were the res
cued officers and crew of the Repub
lic, safe on board the derelict destroy
er Seneca, to which they were trans
ferred from the revenue cutter Gresh
ani. after staying up to the last mo
ment by their sinking vessel.
At her dock in Brooklyn was the
battered Florida, aboard which her
crew had remained throughout her
trying experience.
Graphic Tales of Crash.
Willi the important work of rescue
thus practically finished, attention be
gan to be turned to endeavors to learn
definitely if possible how the two big
ocean travelers had come to crash
into each other and whether their
fateful meeting was as unavoidable as
at first appeared. On the Republic's
side little was to be learned. Her
passengers told graphic tales of the
crash, of the excitement on board, of
behavior of the crew and of the effi
cient work of rescue. That all had
not gone so well with the Florida and
that, possibly on her bridge might be
sought, a contributing cause for the
disaster was indicated by a late de
velopment of the day.
Wheelsman Felled by Captain.
There are two versions of what hap
pened on the bridge of the Florida
when the Republic loomed up in front
of her through the morning fog. Lit
tle could be learned from Capt. Ros
pini when he was seen on board his
essel on her arrival in the harbor.
According to others who had been
11 board the Florida and were
rought into port by the Baltic, how
ver, something went wrong with the

lision was imminent. One story had
that a quartermaster had the wheel
when the commander yelled for it to

Worked Like Heroes.
Survivors had warm words of com
mendation for the officers and men of
the Florida, who worked like heroes,
with their own ship in a sad way, to
get the passengers from the worse
damaged Republic to comparative'
safety on board the Italian vessel.
When the Florida reached her dock
it was learned that it was three and
