LawL - tott' 7) Tin Associated I'ress HALIFAX, Nova Scotia Two days after the Titanic sank in 1912, a cable repair ship sailed from Halifax with a sad cargo: blocks of ice, embalming fluid aijd stacks of empty coffins. ; Two weeks later, the Mackay-Bennett was back, bearing 190 bodies pulled from the North Atlantic.
