jNEW YORK, Oct. 17.-Krancla Inch,
the boyish-looking Briton, who com
rnindel the burned steamer Voltumo
came to port tonight bringing- with him
eighty-seven survivors, passengers and
crew, of his Ill-fated vessel. Ills storr
of the disaster. In which 135 Uvea were
lost, had preceded htm by wireless, but
In a cabin of the Kroonland which
bi ought him here. Inch told his tale in
simply phrased and modestly spoken de
tail that described mora vividly then the
wireless could picture the panorama of
the Volturno's loss and the rescue of
moro than SCO of those It had on board.
Cowardice there was none, on the Vol
tumo, either among officers or crew.
Inch said. There was no rush of seamen
which made It necessary for him to warn
hero back with his revolver. His
volver was in a drawer in his cabin and
it burned with tha ship. And no one on
board drew a revolver. These statements
he intended should refute the stories told
by steerage .passengers who arrived yes
terday on the . Grosser KurfuersL
1'rnUr for All.
The Volturno's master besides defend
ing his own officers and men said he had
no criticism to make of tho tactic of any
of the boats that stood by. . "Tho Car
mania did Its best, tho samo as the
others," ho suld. "Thero Is nothing but
praise for everyone. I did not expeot a

a life raft, but it drifted across the Vol

that, the Carmnnla could not do, said
Eighteen cabin and' two Bteerage pas
sengers entered the first lifeboat that
ventured to leave tho Volturno. Only
enough, of the crew stepped In to man It,
said Inch; they did not rush to it and it
was not crowded, Entangling Itself in its
after tackle. It capsized. All In it were
drowned except Chief Officer Miller and
a steward, who climbed into It a(ter "

next boat went thirty passengers and
ten sailors. This boat got away fell right
but lias not been heard from. The third
boat took, off forty, ten of them Bailors.
As It settled Into tho water ten more
Jumped aboard from the Volturno's deck.
A, wave swept It under the Volturno's
stern. "It Just sat on it and crushed
It 'out of sight," said Inch. "The bos'n
lived and woo tho only one to escape."
Inch denied reports of. rotting tackle
arid fire hose and ot unsafe Hfoboots,
saying all- of. these articles were In good
condition, He counted .oqly three ex.
plosions, 'the last one wrecking wheel and
co'mpass so that a hondgeor had to be
Inch denied stories ot steerage ,pasen
gers thai people were swepl overboard
and babies were trampled on while being
rescued by the Grosser Kurfuerst's first
boat that came in response to Lloyd's
trrand. Officers urged men and women
to Jump overboard, for the lifeboat could
not get near enough for them to be low
ered into it None dared to Jump. "Show
them how to Jump," Inch told his crew.
Two at a Umo they leaped over the rail.
When passengers saw them reach the
lifeboat they followed them into the. sea.
With boat hooks and oars some were
rescued. Others went to their deaths.
No women were removed in this way.
''Before I climbed down I went over
the ship to see it any one remained,"
Inch said. "The fire had eaten Its way
beyond amidships under the decks. I
found no one alive, though there were
bodied in the forecastle, men who had
been cut off and burned to death; I went
to the r&jl with my dog, wrapping it in
a blanket. I leaned over, 'here,' I said,
'catch my baby,' I dropped the dog into
the arms of a Kroonland officer in the
lifeboat. He opened the blanket tenderly.
'Why, It's a dog,' he said. "I thought it
was your kid. "
Smoked All the Time.
Inch's three "kids" and their mother
are in London. One of his first acts
upon arriving here was to send them a
cablegram. Their father went thirty-six
hours without eating or drinking, refus
ing to leave the work of fire-fighting. "I
smoked, smoked about all the time,
cigars, pipes, cigarettes, anything I could
get." Inch said, A blast of heat blinded
his eyes with pain, and the skin peeled
from his face when he received his first
medical attention after being rescued.
Theyv had to drop 'cocaine, into his eyes

Among' tho survivods on the Kroonland

the canvas covering and the balloonets
disappeared In a moment.
A second and more violent explosion
was then heard, fire having reached the
gasoline tanks filled with about a ton ot
liquid fuel. Before the reports of the ex
plosion had died down the wreck ot the
most modern of Germany's dirigibles lay
a flaming mass on tho ground.
The fire departments of all the neigh
boring suburbs, with detachments of the
balloon corps, the Pioneer and other
troops were soon on the spot, but there
was nothing left to save.
The balloon lay In a great curve like a
letter B, a mass ot glowing wires and
tangled girders. The cylinders of the
motors in the center gondola and one of
the after propellers could be distinguished.

were borne on stretchers to the balloon

the place to keep back the crowd.
Six Ilodlea Blown from Gondola.
The six Inmates ot the center gondola
had been blown through the sides of tho
car by the first explosion and their
bodies fell a quarter of a mile away from
the wreck of the balloon, which was

The commander and members of the ad

them, however, died before he was ex
