Causo, responsibility nnd similar
questions regarding the stupendous
disaster will be taken up In tlmo by

Officers Knew Icebergs Were Near. '
FactB which I hnvo established by
Inquiries on the Cnrpnthla, ns posi
tively as thoy could be established In
hrlow of tho alienee of tho fow Btirvlv
ting officers, nro:
That the Tltanlc's officers know,
ovornl hours before tho crash, of tho
possible nearness of Icebergs.
That tho Tltanlc's speed, nearly 23
knots an hour, was not Blackened,
i That the number of lifeboats on tho
e'Htnnlc was Insufficient to nccommo
ate much moro than one-third of tho
passengers, to say nothing of tho
Wow. Most members of tho crew
ay there were 16 lifeboats and two
oollapslbles; none say there wero
more than 20 boats In a.11. The 700
who escaped filled most of tho 16 life
boats and tho one collapslblo which
Rot away to the limit of their capac
ity. "Women First" Rule Enforced.
That the "women first" rule, In
some cases, was applied to the extent
f turning back men who were with
khelr families, oven though not enough
sromen to fill tho boats wero at hand
bn that particular part of tho deck.
Borne few boats wero thus lowered
without being completely filled, but
taost of these wore Boon flllod with
allors and stewards, picked up out
of the water, who helped mnn them.
That the bulkhead system, though
probably working In tho manner in
tended, availed only to delay the
hip's sinking, the position nnd length
bf the ship's wound (on tho stnrboard
quarter) admitted Icy water which
caused the boilers to explode, and
these explosions practically broke tho
hip In two.
Bulkhead Rendered Ineffective,
Had the ship struck tho Iceberg
bead-on, at whatever speed, and with
Whatever resultant shock, the bulk
head system of water-tight compart
ments would probably have snved tho
vessel. As one man expressed It, It
Was the "Impossible" that happened
when, with a shock unbelievably mild,
khe ship's side was torn for a length,
Which made the bulkhead system In
effective. The Titanic was 1,799 miles from
Queenstown and 1,191 miles from
New York, speeding for a maiden voy
age record. The night was starlight
the sea glassy. Lights were nut In
Most of the staterooms, and only two
r three congenial groups remained
ta the public rooms.
Va the crow's nest, or lookout, and
Ira the bridge, officers and member
af the crew were at their places,
awaiting relief at midnight from their
two hours' watch.
Danger Warning Sounded.
At 11:45 came the sudden sound of
two gongs, a warning of Immediate
Tho crash against tho iceberg which
had been Righted at only a quarter of
a mllo, camo almost simultaneously
with tho click of the levers operated
by thoso on tho bridge, which stopped
the engines and closed the water
Captain Smith was on the bridge a
moment lator giving orders for the
Humtnonlng of all on board, and for
the putting on of llfo-presorvers nnd
tho lowering of llfoboats.
Many Men In First Boats,
Tho first boats lowered contained
more men than tho latter ones, as the
men wero on deck first and not
enough women to fill them.
When, a moment later, tho rush of
frightened women nnd crying chil
dren to tho deck began, enforcement
of the "women first" rule became rigid.
Officers loading Homo of tho boats
drew revolvers, but in most enses tho
men, both passengers and crow, be
haved In n way that called for no such
Report Captain 8hot 8elf.
Itevolver shots, heard by many
persons shortly boforo tho end of tho
Titanic, caused many rumors. Ono
was that Captain Smith shot hlmsolf,
another was that FIrBt Officer Mur
dock ended his life. Smith, Murdock
and Sixth Officer Moody are known
to hnvo been lost. The surviving of
ficers, Llghtoller, Pltmnn, Bnthall and
Lowe have made no statement.
Members of the crew discredit nil
reports of suicide, nnd say Captain
Smith remained on the bridge until
Just before the ship sank, leaping only
after thoso on tho dcckB had been
washod away. It Is also related that,
when a cook Inter Bought to pull
him aboard a lifeboat he exclaimed:
"Let me go!" and, Jorklng away, went
" LIfe-Preiervera Effective.
What became of the mon with life
preservers Is a question asked since
tho disaster by many persons. The
MOST DREADED PART
preservers did their work of support
ing tholr wearers In the water until
the ship went down. Many of thoso
drawn Into the ortex, despite the
preservers, did not come up again.
Dead bodies floated on tho surfaco as
the last boats moved away.
Band Plays as Ship Sinks.
To relnte that tho ship's string band
gathered In tho saloon, near the end,
and played "Nearer, My God, to
Thoo," sounds like an attempt to glvo
an added solemn color to a sceno
which was In itself tho climax of sol
emnity. Out various passengers and
survivors of tho crew agree tn tho
declaration that they heard the music.
To Bomo of tho hearers, with hus
bands among the dying men in tho
water and at the ship's rail, tho strain
brought In thought tho words:
"So, by my woes I'll bo
Nearer, my God, to thco,
Nearer to thee."
"Women nnd children llrst," was the
order In tho tilling or tho Tltanlc's
llfoboats. How well that ordor was
fulfilled tho list ot missing first and
second cabin passengers bears elo
quent witness. "Mr." Is before almost

below, and might later bo laughed at.
It waB such a feeling an this, from
all accounts, which caused John Ja
cob Astor nnd his wile to refuse the
places offered them In the first boat
and to retire to tho gymnasium. In
the namo way II. J. Allison, Montreal
banker, laughed at tho warning, and
his wife, reassured by him, took her
time about dressing. They and their
daughter did not reach tho Carpathta.
Their son, less than two years old,
was carried Into a lifeboat by bis
nurse and wns taken In charge by;
MaJ. Arthur Peuchen.
The admiration felt by passengers
and cfow for tho matchlessly appoint
ed vessel was translated, In thoso
first few moments, Into a confidence
which, for some, proved deadly.
Lifeboats Are Lacking.
In tho loading of tho first boat, re
strictions of sex wero not made, and
It seemed to the men who piled In be
plde tho women that thcrq would be
boats enough for all. Hut the ship's
officers knew bettor than this, and as
the spreading fear caused an earnest
advance toward tho suspended craft

on those decks and In the waters be
low, such adjectives as "dramatic"
and "tragic" do but poor Justice. With
the knowledge of deadly peril gaining
greater power each moment over
those men and women, the nobility
of the greater part, both among cabin
passengers, officers, crew and steer
age, asserted ItBelf.
Straus Held Back by Guard.
lsldor Straus, supporting his wire
on her way to a llfoboat, was held
back by an Inexorable guard. Another
officer strovo to help her to a seat of
satoty, but she brushed away his arm
and clung to her husband, crying, "1
will not go without you."
Another womnn took her place, and
her form, clinging to her husband'B,
became part ot a picture now drawn
Indelibly In many minds. Neither wfe
nor husband, so far as anyono knows,
reached a placo of Bafety.
Astor and Wife Part.
Colonel Astor, holding his wife's
arm, stood decorously aside as the
officers spoko to him, and Mrs. Astor
and ber maid were ushered to Beats.
Mrs. Henry, H. Harris parted in like
manner from her husband, saw him
last at the rail, beside Colonol Astor.

S'uU, Hays and Stead Lost.
Of unjrr Archlo Hutt, a favorite
"1th hi- fellow tourists; of Charles M.
Hays, president of the Qrand Trunk;
of DenJatuln Guggenheim, and of WIN
Ham T. Stead, no one seems to know
whether they tarried too long In their
staterooms or whether they foreboro
to approach tho fast filling boata
Nono of them waB In tho throng
which, weary hours afterward, reached
Pistols Check 8teerage Men.
Simultaneously on tho upper decks
of tho ship the ropes creaked with tho
lowering of boats, and as they reached
the water those in the boats saw
what those on the docks could not
Bee that the Titanic was listing rap
Idly to starboard, and that her stern
was rising at a portentlous angle. A
rush ot steerage men toward the
boatB was checked by officers with
revolvers In hand.
Some of the boats, crowded too full
to glvo rowers a chance, drifted for a
tlmo. None had provisions or water,
there waB a lack of covering from the
icy air, and the only lights were the
still undlmmed arcs and Incandesconta
of tho settling ship, savo for one ot
the first boats. There a steward, who
explained to tho passengers that ho
had been shipwrecked twlco before,
appeared carrying threo oranges and a
Green Lantern as Savior.
That green light, many of the sur
vivors say, was to tho shipwrecked
hundreds ns tho pillar of fire by night.
Long after tho ship had disappeared,
nnd while confusing false lights
danced about the boats, tho green lan
tern kept them together on the course
which led them to the Carpathla.
As the end of tho Titanic became
manifestly but a matter of moments,
the oarsmen pulled their boats away,
and the chilling waters began to echo
splash after splash as passengers and
sailors In life preservers leaped over
and started swimming away to es
cape the expected suction.
Icy Water Brings Death,
Only the hardiest of constitutions
could endure for more thau a few mo
ments such a numbing bath. Tho
first vigorous strokes gave way to
heartbreaking cries of "Help! Help!"
and stiffened forms wore soon, the
faces relaxed in death.
Revolver shots wero heard In the
ship's last moments. The first report
spread among tho boats was that Cap
tain Smith had ended his life with a
bullet. Then it was said that a mate
had shot a steward who tried to push
his way upon a boat against orders.
Nono of theso tales have been veri
fied, and many of the crew Bay tho
captain, without a preserver, leaped
In at the last and went down, refusing
a cook's offered aid.
Last Lifeboat Is Capsized.
The last of the boats, a collapsible,
waB launched too late to get away,
and was overturned by the ship's
sinking. Some of those In It all, say
some witnesses found safety on a
raft, or were picked up by lifeboats.
In the Marconi tower, almost to the
last, the loud click of the sending In
strument waa heard over tho waters.

In tho boats did not know, and they
would least of all have supposed that

Music Was a Sacrament.
As tho screams In the wator multi
plied another sound was heard, strong
at first, then fainter In tho distance.
It was the melody of the hymn,
"Nearer, My God, to Thee," played by
tho string orchestra In the dining
saloon. Somo of those on the water
started to sing the words, but grew
silent as they realized that for the
mon who played, the music was a sac
rament soon to be consummated by
death. The serene strains of tho
hymn and the frantic crlos ot the dy
ing blended In a symphony ot sorrow
Tetanic Goes to Bottom.
Led by the green light, under the
light of the stars, the boata drew
away, and 'the bow, then the quarter,
then the stacks, and at last the stern
ot the marvel-ship of a few days be
fore passed beneath the waters. The
great force of the ship's sinking was
unaided by any violence of the ele
ments, and the suction, not so great
as had been feared, rocked but mildly
the group of boats now a quarter of a
mile distant from it.
Sixteen boats were In the forlorn
procession which entered on the terri
ble hours of rowing, drifting and sus
pense. Women wept for lost hus
bands and sons. Sailors Bobbed for
the ship which had been their pride.
Men choked back tears and sought to
comfort the widowed. Perhaps, they
said, other boats might have put off in
another direction toward the last.
Thoy strove, though none too sure
themselves, to convince the women of
