M THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. NEW YORK. TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 1912. through a Held of Ice. She will arrive on Thursday night. Captain E. J. Smith, commander of the Titanic, probably went to Ills grave with his ill-fated vessel without once being able io wumiuuieiile direct with the agents of his line. Aside from the C J L sent by his wireless operator, not one word from him was received up to the time the Tltuuic sank bow foremost into the ocean. Women Saved First.

Frequently a ship strikes what is known as a 'pin nacle rock,' ripping open her keel. The iceberg against which the Titanic smashed her Innv may have had some such submerged projection which did additional damage to the. keel. If the forward bulkheads of the vessel had held after the impact which smashed the bow, it certainly seems that the relative buoyancy of the remaining compartments would have been sufficient to keep the ship afloat. I am compelled to believe that a great many of her compartments must have been punctured or sprung."

THREE BIG LINERS EXPERIENCED PERIL VIEWS OF SEA EXPERTS women and children first is plainly Wiis eUuel. traveling at full speed or indicated by the preponderance of women among the partial list of sur vivors that the wireless has given. Although rated as one of the most able commanders since the advent of the modern steamship, Captain Smith's career had been recently nwirred with ill-luck. He was in command of the Titanic's sister ship Olympic when that vessel was in collision with the British cruiser llawke. Exonerated of all blame for this occurrence, he was placed In charge of the Titanic, when his new charge fouled the steamship New York in the Solent after leaving Southampton on her maiden voyage, which has ended so disastrously. He had been in the line's employ for more than thirty years, and his first important command was the Majestic. Although 8ft souls are reported to be on the C'arpathla, It Is apparent that all of them are not passengers, for it was necessary for members of the Titanic's crew to man the lifeboats which set out from the Blnklng liner's sides. How many of the crew were assigned to each boat under the con ditions prevailing is a matter of conjecture. A similarly unsettled matter Is the percentage of first-class passengers among those saved. While the mimes of survivors obtained are largely those of saloon passengers, the rule "women first" should apply equally to the second cabin and steerage, a regulation which may have cost the life of tunny prominent men above decks. It is natural also that the names of the more obscure survivors would be slower In reaching laud. , Hysterical Crowds Seek News of Disaster. False news and false hopes and an International belief that the palatial Titanic was practically unslnkalile followed the slowly unfolding accounts her loss in a way without precedent. Eager crowds in a dozen cities i the United States besieged bulletin oards when It became known that the limit liner hud really sunk with terrible loss of life, and in New York (..'lty hysterical men and women crowded into the AYhlte Star Line offices seeking news of relatives. Vincent Aster, Colouel Astor's son, spent the en tire night waiting for some wireless tidings of his father, alternately visiting the "White Star Line headquarters and the newspnper offices. The speed at which the Titanic was traveling when she shattered herself against the iceberg perhaps will not be known until the first of her surviv. ors reaches port. Whatever her rate of progress, how-over, shipbuilders here and abroad must admit that while the modern steamship tuny defy the wind nnd weather, Ice and fog remain nn ever-1 ' present element of danger. No ship, they point out. no matter how stanehly built nor how many watertight bulkheads protect her, may plunge headlong against a wall of Ice without grave results. The general opinion is that the Titanic's equipment was put to au extraordinary test which uo vessel could have withstood. Shattering Effects of Smashing Into an Iceberg-. "Under ordinary circumstances these watertight compartments will preserve a ship from sinking.'' said A. L. Hop- perhaps the crash into a b-rg was so tremendous that there was practically no give. "if the Titanic hit one of those great ice masses," said Mr. Nixon, "it te likely that she struck one that had no more give thin a rock. Under these circumstances something had to give way, and, as the Iceberg did not, the great ship had to crumple up. It is conceivable that an impact of this sort might have buckled her longitudinal plates from end to end, shearing off ml starting rivets and opening up the watertight compartments throughout the length of the vessel." Kor many years steamship men have asserted that the safest place to be is n a well-equipped oceau liner. In proportion to the number curried, the statistics show that there Is less loss of life and less chance of injury on board a modern liner than there Is In any other means of transportation. Fleets come and go from New York and other ports with the regularity of the tides, and those carrying mails maintain a schedule which almost equals in punctuality that of the railway mail tralus. Icebergs in the Steamship Lanes. Transatlantic steamers travel in well-defined routes, known as "steamship lanes," the westbound and the eastboiind. This reduces to a minimum the chances of collision with one an other. Hut icebergs and derelicts have no respect for these rules and float Into the pnths or wallow across them to be a dire menace in time of fog or very thick weather. There is no way to give warning until too late. Out of a smother of a fog a pallid shape may be glimpsed over the bows, to be followed a half minute later by the crash of the bows ugalnst the mass of Ice. Washington, April 16 George Uhler, Inspector general of the Federal Steamboat Inspection Service, said today he believed the Titanic plunged Into the Iceberg with such momentum that the lnir pact buckled her to pieces. The vessel, In all probability, he added, ran over a submerged end of the berg, which ripped open her bottom; that her safety com partments thus quickly filled - and the vessel became a helpless mass of twisted steel wedged In a mountain of Ice. Captain Charles A. McAllister, engin eer in chief of the revenue cutter service, today expressed the belief that the mass which sent the Titanic to the bottom of the ocean was a salt iceberg, and not a Polar berg of glacial formation. He pointed out that the ratio of Ice above water in such an iceberg was only one-ninth of Its bulk. In other words, with only nine feet visible, there would be eighty-one feet of solid rock-hard lee submerged. Many naval officers In Washington to day consulted informally over the plans of the Titanic to develop Individual theories as to the cause of her sinking, notwithstanding ber numerous watertight bulkheads. One of the engineer officers of wide ex-1 perience declared the weak point in the ship's design was a very long central passageway running from the flrerooms forward to the collision bulkhead. At the fore end of this passage was a ladder whereby the firemen ascended from the flrerooms to their quarters on an upper deck. It was the theory of the officer In ques tion that the force of , the collision started the plates at the end of this passage and that the great rush of water prevented the closing of the door In -the bulkhead leading Into the Are rooms. With the flrerooms Ailed, in addl tlon to the bow compartments smashed by the blow against the Ice, the ship would not have retained sufficient flota tlve power to insure safety. All of the naval experts were united on the necessity of promptly suppressing by law the amateur wireless operator, who is believed to have been much In evl dence In this fatality. Ships Arriving Here Today Passed Through Field of Icebergs. CAPTAINS WERE CAUTIOUS. Niagara, Lapland and California Report Conditions When Titanic Went Down. WILL AFFECT OCEAN TRAVEL TENNIS EXPERT BEHR SAFE. Member of Crescent Club Among Titanic Survivors. The rescue of Karl Behr, the well-known tennis player, Yale graduate, hockey enthusiast and golf star, will In terest a great many Brooklynltes, for the young man was a Crescent Athletic Club member and Immensely popular. There were many Inquiries last night at the office of The Brooklyn Eagle as to his safety. Behr is one of the greatest tennis players ever turned out in this country, and only last summer had a memorable match with his clubmate. Raymond D. Little, at Newport, during the national championship. He has been abroad for the United States In search of the famous Davis Cup, and was celebrated because of his tena cious method of play. Gritting his teeth In a match, he is wont to drive the ball as hard as any man who handles a racket. As a hockey star he played on the Yale team at col lege and later practiced with the St. Nicholas team, but refused to play league games, because he belonged to the Crescents. It was stated last night by the head of the firm for which Mr. Behr was traveling In Europe that he had just completed an exceptionally successful trio on the other side, and his employer stayed up nil last night trying to get trace of the real Btate of affairs. While the Behrs live in Jersey, they are really Brooklyn ltes. and are very well known on the Park Slope and the Heights. Loss of Titanic Will Keep Many Per sons at Home. There Is no question that the Titanic disaster will affect ocean travel this summer to a marked extent. Many people through fear of Insufficient protection In case of accident will abandon all hope of a European trlpp. One of the first visitors to The Eagle Information Bureau this morning was a woman who came to make inquiries re garding the purchase of an automobile, saying that owing to this accident she had given up her plans to go abroad and instead Intended to purchase an automobile. BLOW TO LIFE INSURANCE. , If twelve to fifteen hundred of the passengers and erew of the Titanic were lost, as the reports Indicate, one of the hardest blows of recent times will have been delivered the life and accident insurance companies of this country and Europe. By the law of the sea, women and children were saved first and the principal casualties were among - the men, and It is men who are most solicited by Insurance companies and carry the heaviest policies. The Inability to toll at this time what proportion of first-class passengers perished makes It Impossible to form the remotest estimate of the total losses to the Insurance companies. but It will be exceptionally heavy unless more were saved from the wreck than Is generally believed. It is probable that hardly ten per cent, of the first-class passengers were not insured on their lives, while those In the first and second cabins who carried life Insurance, or that against accident alone, must have been equally as large. The class of patrons on the Titanic was such that they would be of the kind who had their lives most heavily Insured, and the aggregate will doubtless reanh Into millions of dollars and will probably have a far-reaching effect on the dealings in the companies' securities. FINANCIAL DISTRICT TALK. Titanic Disaster Practlcallv Only Subject of Discussion. In the financial district little else was discussed but the appalling disaster to the giant steamer Titanic. Gloom seemed to pervade every quarter. Bankers and brokers, customers and the usual habitues appeared for the most part to have sustained a personal loss. There were hopes for better tidings, and the belief that perhaps the best had not been learned. But there were fears which Were apparently greater and doubts as to the genuineness of such good pieces of Information as had been received. One fact commented on was that no great financier had been on board the Ill-fated vessel, but this did not blot out the other fact that there might yet be experienced results of the catastrophe which could not at present be formulated and put Into words. At one time a rumor got abroad that J. P. Morgan was on the Titanic when It sailed from Southampton. This was run down, but not before It had Deen uscu with market effect. Generally speaking, It was believed that the sad event would have no permanent market Influence, and that few of those who were lost were Interested In the security markets to such an extent as to foreshadow any real disturbance to values. Very naturally the Issues of the Mercantile Marine Company were much de pressed. Early losses were 2 points In Three Atlantic liners arrived here this morning, after having passed through the same field of bergs and small Ice that sent the Titanic to the bottom of the ocean off Cape Race. They are the Niagara, of the French line, bound here from Havre; the Lapland, uf the-Red Star Line, from Antwerp, and the California, of the Anchor Line, frdm Glas gow. The Niagara came the closest to meeting the fate 'of the Titanic, while the Lapland scraped several chunks of Ice ana tae California managed to get through the Held without colliding with any of the floating dangers. There was a thick mist at the time, Captain Juham said, and the Niagara was being tud at reduced speed. This was last Wednesday night, an moat ot the passengers were at dinner. The ship had been brushing against small lc floes for some time when there came a severe shock and diners were thrown to the floor, while dishes and glassware were scattered over the saloons. Several stewards were thrown down and the passengers, most of whom were of the Latin, Slavish and kindred races, prone to excitement under any unusual conditions, became greatly alarmed and rushed to the decks In swarms. For a time pandemonium reigned, but Captain Juham and his officers managed to subdue the more excited leaders of the mob and in the meantime ordered the wireless operator, Herve Magny, to Bend out the "8. 0. S." call of distress and ask immediate assistance. The commander immediately nade a personal Inspection of his ship and found that, although she was leaking, due to the buckling of some of the plates below the water line, she was in no Immediate danger, whereupon he sent out a second wirelesa to the Carinanla, which had responded, saying that he could proceed to New York under his owp power. This was done and the ship, upon arrival here today, showed little indication that she hud suf fered, although there was some water in the hold. Captain Juham belittled the accident, although admitting that bis vessel had been very close to extreme peril. . Captain Doxrud of the Lapland today showed by his log book that he bad en countered the ice field and big bergs that proved the end fit the, Titanic. s The log reads that on April 12 his ship wai running through Ice, large and small, for several hours and that navigation was extremely difficult. Captain Doxrud im mediately, upon entering the ice field, reduced the speed of the Lapland to hal?, then slowed down to mere steerage way as the ship threaded her way In and out among the bergs. It was the admission of every officer aboard the Lapland that navigating such field of ice at more than half speed was to Invite disaster, although none of them had auy record of the speed at which the Titanic was going when Bhe met her fate. Captain Doxrud continually kept before his mental eye the fact that If a piece of Ice projects ten feet above the water line there are at lea3t sixty feet more submerged, and that to collide with Buch an obstacle at full speed would probably mean the loss of the ship and passengers. Like experiences came to the California, Captain James Blalkle commanding, which came In from Glasgow today, the ship traveling through much ice In the same general position, but not touching any of the bergs.

While no concerted action of the churches of Brooklyn with regard to the disaster to the Titanic has been taken, 1 Is likely that It will be made the sub jent of the prayer meetings of the week Many of the churches of the borough of all denominations hold their midweek services on Wednesday, while others, par ticularly the Baptist churches, It. no meet until Friday.

Mrs. Goldlng said today that she knew several of the officers well and that some of them had been at her house to dine. She spent most of the morning telephoning to the offices of the line to learn what she could about the disaster. INQUIRIES AT EAGLE BUREAU. , Eagle Bureau, i 53 Rue Cambon. Paris, April ilS Anxious Inquiries have been received here concerning the safei). tho Der cent, bonds, 1 point In the common stock, and 2V4 points in the pre ferred, but the selling was not. neavy, am. real liquidation not as Berious as might have been expected. ti an. lareelv the nener Tnai me greater part or the money loss woum ihu on English underwriters, and that effect here would be to a great extent bcuu-mental.

FEW SECURITIES ON TITANIC. Owners of Stocks and Bonds May Secure Duplicates. The oninlon was expressed this after noon by John E. Gardln, vice president of the National City Bank, that a com paratlvely smell amount of securities were abofird the ll-ratea manic in uuu-eit to New York. "The amount of securities that were i,inr shinDCd to this country on the Titanic, I believe, was quite unimportant," said Mr. Gardln, "and that Is due to the fact that there Is no big move ment In securities on at this time that would call for any great volume of stocks or bonds being shipped to America. For eign banks have on deposit here securities amounting in the aggregate $75,000.-000 or $100,000,000. Therefore there is no reason to believe that the shipment of securities aboard the Titanic was large. Personally I have no means of knowing what there was In this ship in the way of securities, but there being no big movement of this kind on I think we will find that only a small amount of securities went down with the Bhlp." All the securities on me Titanic addressed to the United States and the transfer offices of various American railroads and other corporations were Insured. Should the securities be lost It will be necessary for the owners lo secure a duplicate list In order to obtain from the companies concerned a reissue of securities. A bond must be filed for twice the amount Involved, and there will be some legal delay before the new securities can be issued. While there may be considerable Inconvenience suffered because of the destruction of securities there can be no actual loss. b Henry B. Harris.

Believes That Her Side Was Tom Out by Impact With Ice. . London. April 16 Alexander Carlisle, lately chief designer for Harland & Wolff, the shipbuilders, and the designer of both the Titanic and the Olympic, in the course of an Interview today said: . ' "I never thought there was such a thing as an unsinkable ship. When tha news first came that the Titanic was sinking by the head, I thought it likely that she would reach port. The fact that she sank within four nours after the Impact with the ice iudlcates that her side was torn out." . . , . J. CLINCH SMITH NOT SAVED. I LETT, Bertha J.

' James Clinch Smith, of Smlthtown, L. , one ot the passengers of the steam ship Titanic, whose name is not reported among the aurvlvors, was well known on Long Island as a sportsman and society man. He was the son. of the late John Lawrence Smith, at one time County Judge of Suffolk. He was one of the heirs of tne mer chant prince, A. T. Stewart, through his mother, a daughter of tne Dig drygooaa merchant. His sister was the wife of Stanfard White, killed by Harry K. Thaw. He was with White at the time of the shooting and was an important witness In the case. : ' At the death of his father he Inherited the splendid ancestral home at Smith-town and entertained lavishly at that place for many years.
