Empress ol Ireland Goss to
Bottom Alter Collision
ONLY 403 PERSONS SAVED
Worst Disaster Since Foundering of
Titanic Occurs In St. Lawrence
River When Collier Storstad De
livers Death Blow to Fine Trans
Atlantic Liner Vessel Stays Afloat
Only Fourteen Minutes After Crash.
Unchecked speed in a fog cost 96!)
lives when the collier StorRtad sank
the Canadian Pacific liner Empress of
Ireland in the St. Lawrence river.
The death estimate is furnished by
the railroad officials after receiving a
tjjjffvivors' list which numbers 403.
TrappeJ in their berths as tliey
were, many of theni imprisoned in
staterooms whose doors had jammed,
many more unable to climb to the
decks, were overwhelmed by the ter
rific ruj'.i of water.
Among the dead are Lawrence Ir
ving, tho English actor, who was a
son of Sir Henry Irving; his wife,
Mabel Hackney, and Sir Henry Scton
Kerr, a famous hunter of big game
and promlnient at the English bar.
Very few of the first or second cabin
passengers were saved.
It was 1:45 a. m. Friday morning
when the Norwegian collier Storstad,
a ship hardly a fifth of the size of the
Empress of Ireland, blundered against
her and cut her down as if she had
been made of paper board.
The collier, freighted with 7,000
tons of coal, was following the course
of the channel as she came on at good
speed. She drove Into the port side
of the Empress and her steel sheathed
bow raked inward and backward.
It. cut throrgh a length of state
rooms, water tight compartments and
deik beams until there was an enor
mous sash that opened from amid
ships to the stern of the liner.
The water did not flow in. It rushed
in. Captain Kendall and his ofllcers
did all that was humanly possible in
the fourteen minutes that the Empresa
hung on the river.
Kendall was hurt and in great pain,
but he showed the pluck of a navul
officer. In the first minute of the dis
aster he ordered Edward Bomford, the
wireless operator, to flash the S. O. S.
call. He ordered officers and stewards
to collect as many passengers as
could be found and hold them for the
boats. He had nine lifeboats over
board within ten minutes.
Had there been time hundreds who
went down with the ship would have
survived. A thousand men and wo
men who had been asleep awoke tou
late to scramble to the decks. Tliey
were crushed or mangled by the bov
of the Storstad, injured by nprnterei)
timbers or .overwhelmed in the ter
rifle ru!ih of water.
It Is probable that scores were killed
Instantly, but hundreds perished while
feebly struggling for doorways while
trying for a footing on sloping decks.
The terror and confusion of the few
minutes while the Empress staggered,
listed and sank can hardly be put In
The proportion of the crew saved
far outnumbered the proportion ot
passengers rescued. That is explained,
however, by the statement that an
unusual number of tho officers and
crew were on duty when the collision
occurred and that It was impossible
for them in the brief time they had
to arouse and save the passengers.
Very few of the seventy-seven In
the first cabin were alive when the
Eureka and the Lady Evelyn, the
little relief steamships, found a
wreckage strewn river and nine over
crowded lifeboats. Only ft handful
from tho stcond cabin managed to get
into the lifeboats or be picked up by
the relief uteamers and the Storstad.
The toll among the third cabin pas
sengers was very heavy.
It is impossible to say how many
were ground to death when tha
Storstad ripped through tiers of state
rooms. Many of the survivors were
brought ashore suffering from broken
legs or arms or deep cuts or bruises.
Many died after reaching this place.
Big and powerful as she was, ol
14,500 tons register and displaying
20,000 ions, tho Empress went to tho
bottom as a stone sinks'. Fourteen
miuutes after the collision there whs
nothing on the Biuface of the river
save the lifeboats drifting with tin
tide, a little wreckage and the rri,i
pled collier hacking away Into the fog
One of tho saddest features was the
Inability of the collier to rescue many
of the pussengers. The officers wero
afraid 'or u few minutes tlmt sin
would sink. Her how wits crushed to
the water line and she took iu a great
deal o.' watr, but she was able to
continue on her way up the river to
Rimouski and land a few survivors
that her crew had taken from tho
wreckage or who munnged to swim to
her In the fog.
The Canadian government Bteamer
Lady Grey brought from Rimouski
1S8 bodies recovered from the wreck
of the Empress of Ireland. The cof
fins were carried ashore at Quebec

majesty's ship Essex and fifty sailors
from the warship with bared heads
carried the collins down the gang
plunk and laid them in rows on three
long tables stretched under the freight
shed on the pier. The building was
draped w ith black.
In the hunt for bodies of the
victims there was no distinction ol
class. Every person, whether finely
dressed or roughly clad, took theli
turn in the line that moved constantly
from poflin to coffin. -
Almost all the bodies bore marks
of violence inflicted by contact with
parts of the wrecked ship or in strug
gles In the water. There were bodies
of women whose heads were split open
It Is possible that women running
from their staterooms in the darkness
following the collision ran against
stanchions or were whirled against
the walls of the sides of the alleys
The wounds also indicated that
some of the women had been crushed
when tho collier burled her steel nose
in the side of the Empress.
Officials in Rimouski have said alsc
that the bodies of the women showed
that several of them had been stabbed
and that bodies of men had been found
with knives in their hands.
At any rate, it was apparent by a
glance at the shrouds that had been
placed on the bodies of both men and
women that there were other wounds
not disclosed on the faces.
Only 209 bodies have been recovered
from the wreck.
The probability Is that the re
nialnder will never be recovered fot
the current will sweep tjiem out to a
watery grave in the ocean.
If the Empress is raised many othei
bodies trapped in their staterooms
will be recovered, but there is a ques
tion as to whether the ship will be
At an inquiry at Rimouski Captain
Kendall told his story of the disaster.
The collier Storstad, in charge ol
the tug Lord Stratlicona, came into
port under her own steam.
She was badly damaged about the
bows, but so far as could be seen this
did not extend more than twenty feet
from tho stem. She was low in the
water except at the bows, where she
had evidently been lightened. Heru
the draught was twenty-six feet.
That the impact with the Empress
of Ireland had been great was evident
by the way the vessel's stem was
twisted to port, the hawser liolo com
pletely smashed, plutes cracked, rivets
twisted or missing, while the heavy
anchor had evidently been driven back
several feet Into the bows.
In anticipation of the arrival of the
collier V. Simpson Walker, registrar
of the admiralty court, was instructed
by solicitors for the Canadian Pacific
railroad to issue documents for the
seizure of the Storstad for damages
by collision to the extent of J2.000,

CRASH PUT OUT LINER'S LIGHTS
Survivors Tell of Their Experiences
and Their Good Fortune In Being
Saved Several Jumped Overboard.
Suffering dreadfully from their ex
periences there is hardly a man or
woman who was saved from the Em
press of Ireland who can give a lucid
account of what occurred on the ill
fated steamer between the time of
the delivery of the death blow by the
Storstad and the final submersion of
That quarter of an hour was a ter
rible one and the hour's wait for help
by the half naked survivors was hard
to endure. Although the survivors
are unable to detail what they went
through they say the helplessness of
the . women and children after the
crash cauie was particularly terrible.
Hardly more than a dozen women of
the scores that took passage on tho
Empress were alive after the ship had
sunk. There were many children,
some of them babies in arms, among
the passengers. A few of these were
saved because of the courage of men
who risked their own lives for the
sake of a child's but most died.
The few survivors who could tell
of their experiences agree pretty ac
curately that nearly everybody save
officers and members of the crew were
asleep at & few minutes before 2
There was a terrific shock as the
Storstad hurled her ponderous weight
against the Empress a shock that
threw passengers from their berths.
Then there was a long, grinding,
rending crash as the Storstad's bow
cut deep into the liner's vitals.
Instantly, It seemed to those who
told t'-.e story, there was a nightmare
of sounds, cries of fear and agony
that was too awful. All lights went
out at the first crash. More than
1,400 persons were fighting for life In
the black darkness. Those who man
aged to find a way to the top deck
saw scores leap into the sea. Pas
sengers who could not get to the few
lifeboats in time seized chairs, any
thing loose they could find and leaped
Into the river. Very many persons
perished in the cold water while
clinging to bits of wreckage and pray
ing for help.
Mr. Longley, a rancher of British
Columbia, explained quietly that he
had made up his mind that he had to
die. The boats had gone. He could
find nothing that promised to support
him in the water. He made his way
to the rail of the ship and waited
until she sank. As she went down
he held his breath, held it for an age,
it seemed to him, but finally he came
to the surlace and luckily near a life
boat. A sailor hauled him in.
W. Davis ot Montreal said that he
and his wife were asleep and were
not awakened by the crash. They got
out of their berths when the water
began to come in and were able to
make their way to the boat deck. The
Empress was listing and it was im
possible for him and other men on
the top deck to get one of the bouts
launched. They gave it up.
As the Empress sank Davis put his
arm around ills wife and told her not
to cling to him. They were sucked
Into the whirlpool as the ship went
down and Mrs. Davis was wrenched
from his grasp. He kept his nerve
and swam to her, grasped her by the
hair and supported iter and himself
upon a piece ot timber until they
were rescued. Mrs. Davis was uncon
scious and near to death when help
got to them.
L. E. Gossettin, a well known law
yer of Montreal, said that he was able
to get a liferaft overboard and that
he clung to it with others until tho
Lady Evelyn reached the scene. He
said he suffered terribly from the cold.
J. L. Black and his wife, who live
In Ottawa, jumped" together before
the ship sank. They were awakened
by the crash, but they got on deck too
late to find places in a lifeboat. They
declared they decided to jump and
take chances. Fortune was with them,
for it sent wreckage to Mr. Black's
hand and he kept his wife above water
until a boat from the Evelyn reached

It is thought that this successful
flight of a machine that was complete

bring about more litigation over the
basic patents granted to the Wright
brothers. The Langley machine was
built for the government and was not
patented. It has been contended that
the Wrights obtained many of their
