The Storstad's owners relied on C. A.
Duclos, Montreal; J. W. Griffin and C. S.

United States admiralty; Ncrman Bcechcr
of New York and Arthur Fitapatrlck of
Mr. Newcombe- opened by outlining the
salient features of the foundering of the
Empress as at present known. It had
been difficult, he said, for the Canadian
Pacific to obtain accurate figures of tho
death list on account of tho number of
European foreigners on board, but it was
now placed at 1,014; with 4J saved.

dered full steam astern. The vessels were
then about 800 feet apart. The green
light of the Empress appeared. Three
minutes later the vessels came together.
The master of the Storstad heard a hall
from the Empress telling him to keep
going ahead. He had ordered this, but
found he could not keep the collier's nose
in the Empress wound. The Storstad
was swung around until it was parallel
with the liner and the collier's master
was afraid his ship would be struck on
the portslde by tho starboard quartJT of

plete circle, and in the meantime the
Empress disappeared. The Storstad blew
signals to the liner, but it did not an

master of the Storstad heard a chorus of
irles and proceeded toward them with
care, his four boats ready to launch. Tho
Storstad boats saved several hundred of
tho Empress survivors and manned en
