ST. JOHN'S, N. F., April 21.---Sixty-four bodies have been recovered by the cable steamer Mackay-Bennett, which has been searching the vicinity of the Titanic disaster, according to a report that reached this city to-night.
It is said that a number of other bodies which were recovered were sunk again, as they were without identification marks.
The names of those identified could not be obtained to-night through the Cape Race wireless station.
The sixty-four bodies recovered are regarded as identifiable, according to the report. Those that were sunk were presumably in a condition making their preservation impossible.
