White Star Liner Titanic Goes Down - Many
Canadians Believed Perish-Most Terrible Disaster in History of Mercantile Marine
NEW YORK, April 1(5—Reports received here up to noon today
at the ollices of the White Mar Steamship Company indicated that
1(5111 persons were lost in the wreck of the liner Titanic, which
collided with an icebarg at 10:25 o'cl ink Sund:iy night and sank off
the Newfoundland coast at 2:20 Monday morning, less than four
hours after the accident.
The survivors, numbering 8(5(5 persons, mostly women and children, now steaming for New York on board the liner Carpathia, are
all that remain of those, including passengers and crew, who
sailed aboard the Titanic on its maiden voyage from Southampton
last Wednesday.
P. A. Franklin, vice-president of the White Star Company, admitted here to-day that it was impossible to give the correct list of
the survivors, as it was evident that the Titanic's officers had
shown no preference in transferring women passengers to the
Carpathia, women in the steerage being given an equal chance with
the wives of the millionaires in the lirst cabin
The hope that additional passengers had been picked up by the
Virginian and Parisian was shattered today when wireless messages received here announced that these two vessels had arrived
on the scene too late to be of assistance.
Not more than a score of male passengers are believed to have
been saved, the men evidently insisting that the women and children be trrnsferred first to the Carpathia. The identity of those
rescued, however, cannot be definitely determined until the Car-
parthia arrives here or sends a revised list of the survivors by
Colonel John Jacob Astor, Benjrmin Guggenheim, Isidor Straus?,
Colonel Washington Roebling. J. P. Thayer and George B. Wid-
ener, all multi-millionaires, are believed to have gone down with
the Titanic.

later  he  traversed  700  miles  of    the

gone over the country and
the      waters   ot     the    bay    and the
"These  straits  never  freeze  over,"
he said. "It is impossible that there ' miinion  on
, difficulty in navigating     the straits,
I tor they are upon tide water,     and
I more  than  that  thc  waters of     the

lie diliiculty ncur the shore at some
times ot the year, but 1 do not think
that it will ever be necessary to have
ice   breaking  boats."
At Nelson river, Dr. Bell says, there
is tide water a very considerable distance up stream and water that is al
ways open.
"Why," said thc doctor, "tiavigu -
tion through the straits should bc
particularly easy, because while there
may at times bc flouting ice, there
arc no rocks and no islands upon
which to go ashore."
Asked if it would not he a bleak
coast upon which to be stranded, Dr.
Hell said tiie coast was very much uu
donated. What is more, there arc
some rcmnrkahly fine people, Indians
who live there Vou kuow, it is generally understood that many ot these
Indians arc descendants ot Hudson
and his navigators, wljo were stranded here, and who probably made
.i-iciids among the Indians and mar -
tied squaws. At any rate, though
they arc not what we might call civilized, I have been delighted at the
people I have met there."
Hr. Bell has made thc passage
through the straits something like a
score ot times iu all muuuer ot sailing  vessel and steamboat.

Dr, Bell says that it is thickly wood
ed for a great part right down to
the coast. He tells of the vast extent
ot Ungavn river, which he characterizes as one of the great rivers of the
world over 700 miles long and very-
wide nud deep. At its mouth is what
he believes to bc the greatest tide In
the world, rising 70 leet (rom low
water to high water.
Dr. Bell does not anticipate that
tbere will be a -ipeedy settlement of
the northland. He says then' ar.-
great stores ot pulpwood and that
tbe outlook tor mines In the country

The Allen Players, starring that.
Western stage favorite "Miss \iruti
Felton" scored a lug succosb in
"Divomins" their opening presentation of a series ol offerings running
this entire week at the Hevelstoke
opera house. The people of HcvelBtokc
seldom have an opportunity to enjoy drama or comedy ol the high-
class presented by thc Allen Players,
and they showed their appreciation
of this fact, by crowding the opera
house with an attentive ami demonstrative audience. The acting thru'
out was ot a high quality. Miss Ver
nn Felton, Mr. H. Irving Kennedy,
and Mr. Half Belmont made admit- -
able principals and they were well
supported by the rest ol the company
whilst the Schranko Orchestra lived
up to their reputation as- municnl artists turning thc usually tedious intervals between acts, into pleasani
Interludes ol melody. The plays
scheduled lor thc remaining nights of
visit, Including some of the latest
successes in drama and comedy, give
tbe public of Revelstoke a chance to
sec this talented company in a var -
lety of offerings, well calculated to
afford amply rtmni for a display ol
thc ability of thc players, aud at the
-nnie time t.. attract all classes of
theatre goers, and we predict that
the Allen players will draw crowded
houses fnr the balance nf their all

of Indies graoed the farewell with
their presence. The following addrest
se-  were  read:
"Heur Miss MeCarter—'The ladies
of Ft. Peter's shurch feel that they
cannot allow you to depart trom
their midst without heartily and sincerely asking you to he kind enough
to accept this small loken of thoir
love and  regard.
"Vou have been a vigilant and untiring louder, undaunted hy enrcs and
dillicultics, and where real hard work
wan, you were always lound there, in
faithful sympathy with thc church.
We shall miss your wise and wholc-
-1 une leadership and our esteem and
appreciation accompany you.
"May your life be as bright as the
sunny clime you purpose making
your home.."
"Hear Mrs. Porter,—Inasmuch as
you are leaving their city the ladies
ol St. Peter's church wish you to

decided gain of the community in
which  your lot muy  be cast.
"I'lease bo good enough to nccept
