Oct. 13.--Captain Lynch the youthful commander of the linei Volrarno, which was destroyed by fire at sea, with the loss of 136 persons, oc Thursday, sent a wireless message tc the office of the Uranium steamshlf line from the Kroonland. The message read: "Volturno abandoned at sea; latl tude 4S.29; longitude 24.39. Approxi mate number of passengers saved, -JS5; crew, 25." These figures are approximate, since it is known that 521 were- saved. The ill-fated boat-had on board 657 persons, sixteen first class passengers, 54S steerage passengers, and^ 93 members of the crew. Of this total the 521 rescued are accounted for by the tec steamships that answered the call ol the burning ship. Bares a Doai Existence.

''When the fire was discovered the crew had tried to Sgai it. but they were hampered by the storm and the fact that the flames had made much headway before being discovered. Pas sengers were notified of the danger, but Captain Lynch feared to send them overboard in the small boats because of the high seas. He instructed his wireless operator to send out the international call for assistance and keep oa sending it without Intermission, hoping that, as the Volttsrao was in the steamer lane, help would be near. "The fire gained rapidly, and when it gotr to the boiler rooms the boilers exploded-with a concussion which almost tore the ship in two. This intensified the fears of the passengers, all of whom belie\ed that their hours were numbered. The more courageous gave words of caeer to the timid, tell- iag them that help would soon be at" hand.

O. S. signals Thursday. Steamship officials are unanimous in saying that had it not been for the gale that accompanied the burnin the Volturno all its passengers and crew would have been transferred to the Carmania, of the Cunard line, the first ship that responded. Though the death list is officially given at 136, it is by no means certain that this is the correct figure. TJhere is a strong possibility that it will-be more. The fire on the Voltumo is said to have originated in the engine room at S.30 o'clock on Thursday marniflg, and is supposed to have started from the friction of a rod of one of the twin propellers fouled at the height of the storm, driving the engineers and firemen from their Quarters and leaving the big vessel at the mercy of the mountain-high waves. The horror of the disaster grows as more details are known. It is now established that scores were burned to death, caught like in a trap as different portions of the vessel burned. Many passengers leaped overboard and were drowned. Only a. few were picked up by the liners that went to the assistance of the Volturno. The rule of the sea, "Women and children first," ,was strictly followed and diseiplane prevailed among the Volturno's. crew. Captain Bane's Story. A thrilling story of the final hours of the Uranium liner Volturno, that was burned ia the raid-Atlantic, was gleaned from a wireless message received from Captain Barr. of the Cunard liner Carmania. which was the first ship to respond to the wireless calls of the Volturno. The story follows: "On Thursday, while making our way through a gale, the Carmania picked up the following faiur S. O. S.' call: " 'Come quick; ship afire; fear we are doomed." "That was the plea which came out of the storm. We immediately secured the location of tae burning ship, thai was directly in the steamer lane. Extra stokers were ordered into the engine room, and then began a wild race of seventy-eight miles which separated us from the ill-fated ship. "Standing upon the bridge, I awaited eagerly the first sign of tbe burning ship. About two hours after we had picked up the call for help we could see from the bridge the blurred ship. fWO BORNEO IN WRECK OF AUTO Wife Seriously Injured Trying to Rescue Husband. his. oodv was found on the estate or ·*» -«*" ?· """·"·· Mrs. Mary Weeks, a wealthy sbciy J reaflj-to be instnictea." eight-year-old widow.
