DETAILS OF TITANIC DISASTER LEARNED Survivors Number 705. Death List Approximately Totals 1635. New York. —More than a week has passed since the Titanic, the greatest marine achievement in the history of the world, sank in mid-ocean. The number of dead probably never will be exactly determined, inasmuch as the complete passenger list went down with the vessel. The number of survivors is fixed at 705, by the report of Captain Rostron, of the Car pathia. The White Star line officials believe the death list totaled approxi mately 1635. All the stories brought out show that the disaster was one of the most horrible that could be imagined, that the passengers suffered hardships which could not well be described or long endured; that the rowboats, as they left the Titanic, drifted through a veritable sea of drowning men, all Bwimming with their last strength in an heroic if not maniacal effort to reach the small boats, which of neces sity had to fight them off; that many a drowning man wa...
