from'ltotterdam to New York with a loss
of life of,elther 136 or 236 ot 1U passen
gers and crew. Ten other liners, cauea
by wireless to the rescue, were standing
by. impotent to avert the tragedy owing
to; the rnountainoua seas.
Agalnitha wireless played a leading port
In tne 'drama. By Its means and through
the heroism of those who responded H
the call, tho lives of 521 of those on
board the Volturno were saved,
The Volturno was owned by the Can
adian Northern Steamship company, but
had been chartered to the Uranium line.
Officials of tho latter company declared
this morning thoso ori board Included
twenty-four cabin and 640 steerage pas
sengers and a crew of ninety-three, mak
ing a total of 667. The wireless dispatch
received from the Carmanla said that
621 had been saved and 230 had lost their
live. This makes a total of 767, or Just
100 more than the number on board as
given 'by the company.
Checking from all available sources,
however, would Indicate that an error In
the wireless transmission of the figures
has been made and that the lower 'total,

When the Carmanla reached the vicinity
ot the Volturno at noon it found tho for

fiercely. The flaming ship was at the

It was learned by the captain of tho
Carmanla that only two out of sir life
boats had succeeded In getting safely
away from the Volturno, the other four,

Too Rough for ,l.lfel)oaf.
In spite of the' terrlrro gal raglngwhen

of the Carrnanfa had one of his life

The boat was launched with much diffi
