Waiting Relatives Stunned by News That 116 Titanic Victims Were Buried at Sea.


By Diamond Ring, Gold Buckle, and Money---Widener's Body Is Missing.


HALIFAX, N. S., April 30.---The cable ship Mackay-Bennett with her cargo of dead reached her pier in the dockyard at Halifax at 9:30 this morning and down the gangway to the pier in the sunlight of a perfect April day they carried 190 of those who had started forth on the maiden voyage of the biggest ship afloat.

In her quest the Mackay-Bennett had found 306 of the Titanic's dead, but only 190 were brought to shore. The rest, the 116, were buried at sea. And 57 of those 116 were among the identified dead. Of those who were brought to shore, 60 lie unnamed at the Curling Rink on the edge of the town. It is believed that most of the 60 were members of the Titanic's crew, but the slender hope that their own dead may be among them will send many to the rink to-morrow.

The first to be claimed was John Jacob Astor and for his death was issued the first "accidental drowning" death certificate of the hundreds who lost their lives in the wreck of the Titanic.

Vincent Astor and Nicholas Biddie start for New York with the body to-morrow night.

The second identified was Isidor Straus. The start for New York will be made early in the morning. Three went on to-night. These were George E. Graham, Milton C. Long, and C. C. Jones. Laurence Millett has identified his father.

Friends have already taken charge of the bodies of E. H. Kent, W. D. Douglass, Timothy McCarty, George Rosenshine, E. C. Ostby, E. G. Crosby, William Porter, A. O. Holverson, Emil Brandies, Thomas McCafferey, Wykoff Vanderhoef, and A. S. Nicholson.

For long before the Mackay-Bennett reached her pier it was established at definitely as it may ever be established that the man who was picked up at sea for George B. Widener was not Mr. Widener, but his manservant Edward Keating. Although the name was sent by wireless a later examination of the dead man's clothing and effects proved that it was Keating's body. A letter in the pocket was addressed to Widener, but the coat was labeled "E. K." and the garments were of an inferior quality. Identification by features was out of the question, for the dead man had been struck by some spar or bit of wreckage and the face was mutilated past recognition. He was buried at sea, and the news sent on to the waiting family.

Young Mr. Widener, who has been waiting here for a week with a private car to carry the body of his father home to Philadelphia, bad heard of the uncertainty, and in a fever of impatience he met the Mackay-Bennett at Quarantine went over the effects with Captain Lardner, and was satisfied that it was Keating, whose body was found and who was later committed to the deep.
