THI EVIWIHO WORLD, SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1911. NEW THRILLING STORIES OF A WFUL DISASTER HEROIC WOMEN IN BOATS Titanic Lifeboats as They Were Brought In, Showing How Survivors Kept Afloat and Lifebelts They Wore AT OARS ALL NIGHT LONG; TO SURFACE AS HE SANK EXPLOSION FLUNG GRACE or a ham tn i o nir omnu OLHIYIAil IlLLO I ML OlUII - MoGaugh, Who Saw Captain and Chier Officer Go to Death, Gives Vivid Recital of Last Moments of the Great Sea Tragedy. 7 Here is the story of the wrack of the Titanic told by one of the men jf the tea.. It is the narrative of an able seaman of twenty-five years' experience. He has sailed In ships which are mere memories to the pres. ent generation. Many times has he been wrecked on unfriendly shores; many Victories has he scored over death by storm and wreck. It was the boast of the White Star line that the best crew obtainable on the other side was shipped for the maiden voyage of the Titanic. That is why George McGaugh was shipped from Southampton to make the record span from England's shores to Sandy Hook. "In all my years on the sea, in all the dangers through which I have passed," said the old salt, "I never saw a braver crowd of men. I never helped a crowd of more courageous women than the passengers of the Titanic, God bless them!" And maybe It was the memory of those awful houra on the Icy sea with women and children tn Ma charge that causrd the brine to Dow from hi weather beaten eyes. And maybe It wee the thought or a patient and loving wlf In Southampton. McOaugb had dame hU duty. That li all ha knows. If von should call him a hero he Wnaldfl't know what you meant. What waa there to be done but atand by and obey ordere the ordera of Captain Smith and Junior Chief Officer Murdoch! MoOaugh la a alanple sailor and he toad his story In a simple narrative. Across the ocean his wife knows not waist her he went down with the many or was rescued with the few. MoQaugh has no money to cable her. He and his nantss who rescued the men, women aant children of the Titan k- were not permitted to come ashore the night the Carpethla landed. They were told that they would bs sent back to England on the Lapland, scheduled to sail to-day. They were vlrttiallv prisoners on the steamer on Thursday night. The thanks of a mighty company to a gallant crew! It was down In Father MoClrath's Catholic Mission that the sailor man told his story to the Fivenlng World reporter to-dsy. Father NfV-Qrath, who has done much for the amelioration of tha condition of Jack at aea, was there and so were a number of hie constituents aa well as many sailors who listened with breathless attention to the moat graphic features of McOaugh's narrative. "It was fortunate," heKan V.-Gaugh, "that the accident happened when It did. It was Juat at the change of watch and every man on deck, either coming on or going off duty. You know how ha struck. It lacked twenty minutes of eight hells. Just before midnight. I was on Suty; my relief waa ready to coma up. I heard ('apt. Smith ordering the oarpenter to make the soundings. 1 heard the report of 'Chips,' who said: Tan degrees list to starboard.' " 'My Ood'.' cried the captain. 'Boa's, pips sll hands on dsck.' COULDN'T ME THI BERG BECAUSE IT WAS BLUE. "Junor Chief Officer Murdoch, aa on tha bridge. The captain waa In the c hart house when she struck. The look-oat tn the crows' neat couldn't see the Iceberg because It was blue, ths same coor aa the water. The captain hold the bridge and held It to the last. Murdoch came to the derk and cried to the firemen, who were Just reporting, to so below and keep tha Area going. Kressn. lu charge, shouted: tJown be- low, man'.' and the crew followed Mm down to their death. They never were seaa afterward. "The collision was an awful bump forward, but owing to the great else of the Titanic was hardly felt aft. In a twinkling Murdock had all the men at their statons by tha lifeboats When eight bells sounded two of the boats I had boon lowered from the davits to tha rati. A number of the ladles Who (dad been asleep came up on dock In 'scant dress. The stewardesses had orders' to make them put on life baits. Hotns of them had time to ' lothe themselves more fully: others went Into the lifeboats In thslr night dresses. "Kr, Murdoch sueprvlaed the handling of ths lifeboats and his cry wss: tidies, this wsy!' A quartermaster and a sailor manned each boat. The first boata had men placed In them for ths) reason that there were not women gad children enough tu HU them. It . was a matter of getting off the greateat number of boata ahd saving tha greatest number of passengers. '"Tha port boats were lowered Hist sad then those on the starboard aide. rt im't true that when the water-tight togapartment were closed the steer-4gp passenger were sealed down. The women in (be steerage were given gnus) chance With those in (he first cabin, it was only necessary to ee a mien to hare the right of way. The altars were so busy lowering and getting away the boats that the latter bad to be manned by the stewards. MURDOCK SHOOTS STEWARD WHO CROWDS IN BOAT. - "t was only toward the last that tha sbssrege passsngsrs got to rushing ths bags Murdock stood with a six shoot-Mr srwwa and snouted thst he would steward was warned bank, but ho Jumped Into one of the boats at the rail, trampling down a woman and her child. 1 tbhik that It wits In Mrs. Aator's boat and It was overloaded then. Murdoch shot him through the Jew and he was I inked back on ths dsck. "Murdock calmed the passengers, tolling them there waa no occaalon for sx-cltement, that the boats were all coming back, and ordered thorn to go on the poop. Even then, ths doom of the Tltinlo was sealed sod the officers and the crow knew It. There waa no panic, but the paasengsrs were bewildered. They would stsrt for the poop, than roiiow some excited Individual who had started forward. "A lot of women ran down between desks to get Into ths boats there, think ing tnat Iks drop to tho water from thsre would be leas dangerous. They had to coma back up again to embark. All the lifeboats had to bo swung from ths davits before ths collapsible boats could be used. But everything was got off sxcept one of the collapsible boats, which burst In ths bows getting afoul of the falls. This waa afterwards used as a lifeboat and thirty man were saved on Its bottom. "Mr. Murdock ordered Boon Nichols to go down to the working alleyway and bring up tha big gangplank, capable of holding forty people. The boa'n and ten men obeyed the order, going to what they believed was certain death. They were never seen again. I got off In charge of the second to laat lifeboat lowered berore ths ooitapslblss ware ussd. and, acting on orders, stood off fifty yards from the Titanic. Forty women and children and some men wars la tha boat. QOT OFF ALL THE COLLAPSIBLE BOATS BUT ONE. "Murdock, with Chief Officer Watld and Second Officer LJghtoller, went to attend to tha manning of the collapsible bouts. They got them all off but one, as I have said. This Is ths one Which waa capslasd and which now lay on the dsck. Mr. Murdock had overlooked nothing that could help savs the passengers when the final moment cams. Hs ordsred doors, ohslrs, cheats of drawers -everything on board that would float to be thrown Into the ssa. "In this way he savsd not loss than sixty lives, for that number of people were nicked up dinging to these buoys. AU the while Capt. Smith was on tho bridge, overlooking everythng, giving his orders which wsrs obeyed without a murmur and without hesitation. Second Engineer Farley and his brave crew of engineers and firemen wars below shutting down ths valves and working the pumps. Farlsy fell and broke both lev and was carried to ths pump room. From there he wsaft to bis death. "The water waa nearlng the bridge when the flrat exploelon cams. Tan mnutes later the second explosion followed. The water had reached the boil ers and that settled the fate of the ship. The Titanic waa split In two. All the passengers left were on the poop deck. The capetied lifeboat waa now adrift on ths dock and man crowded upon It "Both Capt. Smith and Junior Chief Murdook wore now together on ths bridge, the water being up to thslr armpits. Toe nsxt I saw of Capt. Smith he was In the water holding a ohlkS In his arms. Hs swam to ths raft on which waa Second Officsr Ughtoller and gave the child to the mate. That was the last. He and the ship want down and Murdock-Ood help me, don't ask me what I saw! "Than man oh the poop plunged nto the sea aa the great craft went down, both by the head and atern. The men on the life raft were carried hither and thither across the width of ths ship by the currents formed between the two big funnels. The raft with Its load waa directly over the ship when the waters closed above It, and the miracle of It all Is that she kept afloat. There wasn't a bit of auction from the sinking of the blghip, and that's what beats me vet "The men who had Jumped Into the aea found resting places on the chairs, hatches, cheats or drawers snd doors whlah had been thrown overboard by Mr. Murdock. Everything waa now dark. The lights on the Titanic had gone out section uy section, and there was Just an electric arc left to light the noble ship down. "Four firemen were seen on the poop Just before the vessel sank. Ttiey were Mstty Blsck, Mason, Denny Corcoran and John Bannon. One of the boys named Dillon said to Bannon: 'Johnny, there's s light over thsrs; I'm going to strike out for It. Are you coming?" " 'Net Just yet awhile,' said Johnny.

"Through all this I never heard a murmur from one of tha women, either en the ably or on the boats. It was cold, and tffit was ail any of them said. We made them pull on the oars every once In awhile to keep up their circulation. The sailors on the lifeboats gave up their socks, their coals and whatever they had to ksep the women covered. They cut up their sails to spread over than and keep them warm as possible. "All through the night the fleet of Ifsboats rowed around In a circle. We rowed through wreckage and through lanes of bodies of ths living and the dead. The living were pulled Into the boats. We would row for half an hour and lay on our oars for the next half hour, and then begin the work of circulation again. We had word that the Olympic was coming to our rescue. "Poor Phllllpa, the wireless operator who had saved all our Uvea by getUtiK In touch with the outer world, died a heroes death. He went overboard at the last moment and managed to each the raft. He had no big boots or coverings on, and ha Just hung to the raft and died from exposure. Itisy didn't have to push him over. "Ths wster on the raft was up to the waist, and when Phillips became exhausted he Just fell and was washed Into the sea. May Ood have mercy on his soul. He saved the life of every man, woman and child who waa brought Into port by the Carpathla. WOMEN IN THE BOATS DISPLAYED FORTITUDE. "It was a long night. It waa a trying night on the women, but never a oomplalnt. If the men who gave up thslr lives for the women and children of the Titanic were heroes, those brave women who spent thst night and morning tn the lifeboats were Ood's own angels. They were worth the aacriflus of brave men. "All they said was, now and then, that they were cold, and Ood knows, although the sea was smooth and thu akv sal tirlebt a rut fair. It u u u . .1.1 I We were threading our way through fields of les and ws were In the shadow of the great iceberg wheh had sunk the big steamer. "It was . tn the morning that we saw the Carpathla. it waa 1 o'clock bsfore we were alongside. The steamer was bearing down on us with her lifeboats swung In ths davits ready for action. It took three hours tu get ua all on board. "Ths best they could do to get ua on board was to put down Jacob's ladders. There was only a few of the men who could go up that straight rope ladder, and they hsd to lower bes'n's chairs to taks the woman and children up to ths dsck. They opened up the hatohes between rail and water to make the work more eaay. "The work of hoisting us on board was going on at four dfferent places on both sides of the ship. As ths last boatload was hauled up the steamer Cali fornia hove in sight. 8hs had no passengers of ths Titanic on board. "Ws wsrs treated fine on the Car pathla. Everybody did the best hs couM for ths survivors. The two steam- srs took opposite courses and ciroled around the acene of the wreck for a radius of twenty miles before proceeding. Too muoh praise can't be given to the officers and men of the Carpathla for ths way thsy handled the entire crowd of us castaways."

That hu waa determined to wtn his way once more to liar reeling de"ks and go down with hsr, standing on his feet, was further evidenced by hi refusal to be Ukon aboard an overturned lifeboat that lay In hie path to the ship.

FIRST OFFICER MURDOCK A HERO, TOO, SAYS SEAMAN. Harry Thoiniison. one of the sixty real Bailors on the Titanic, told of Ihs death of I'lrst Officer Murdock who, he ga) a, was the real hero of tne ocoaalon. Tlie Instant the ship struck a boatswain called out to us, who were asleep below, that First Officer Murdock ordered us to report to our positions at the lifeboats. The aallor-were the only men supposed to ku, how to lowi - the llfeboets. We lira, bad to reiuovt their coverings, swing nut the davits until the boats cleared the alden and then lower them away with a patented bit. One man at each side of the davit could awing ths boats down. Ws put in ss many people as wo could on the boat deck, and than dropped the boats slowly to tus prom enade deck, where we halted them and let oilier people awing Into them. "Murdock seemed to lie everywhere slong the boat deck.

Queen Quality Shoea need have little anxiety on Mnrln mo thig score. These shoes, which are mad accentuate the good linaa of the foot to such advantage that the matter of sise becomes an insignificant detail. OTHER WOMEN hesitate to wear patent leather shoes for the same reason, fearing that the polished leather will add to the prominence of their feet.
