Upon arriving In this port and being told of the distastrous accident that had befallen the Titanic, the commander -expressed surprise and astonishment: and' Stated 'that his vessel expperienced considerable difficulty in effecting a paseast. through'the same:ice field. An, excerpt, from the ship's logbook reads: ' ' "On April 12, at 7 o'clock A-, M., in latitude 41 degrees and1 58 minutes North, and 50 degrees 15 mlnutes'TVest, on "West bound track, r saw and passe'd through heavy field of ice that seemed to extend well south.'- Also saw, number of icebergs, large,and small, all around, and very dangerous to -shipping.

Mrs Eucknell is the widow of the late Wll Ham Bucknell, founder of Bucknell College, and a. sister-in-law of Garnett Pendleton, president of the Cambridge Trust Company, Fifth and Marke: streets, this city. Mrs. Bucknell was seen at the hom< of her son-in-law, Samuel Wetherjll Twenty-third and Spruce streets. She told her "story in a collected fashion, b'm with arii occasional nervous movemen: of her" hands across her eyes as though trying to £lot from her, vision some o: the terrible scene's through which she passed. She was one of the first to get into 'a lifeboat and leave the doomed Titani and one of the last to be. drawn aboarc the Carpathia. She and her companions had rowed over a wind-tossed sea ii freezing air for hours and were ten miles away from the spot whero th HneV sank before llic Carpathia was, . sighted. . • •"I was asleep in my cabin when the crash came," "said Mrs. Bucknell. cannot explain just what the. noise was like,, except that it was horrible ant sounded like a mixture ;of .thunder and explosions. "In a moment there was a .roaring sound'and I knew that something seri bus was the matter.

"As I stepped out o£ my-stateroom I saw'lying before me on'the floor a nuro .ber of fragments of ice-as,big ; as my fists.'

I could see by -this mail's drawn and haggard -face.that something dreadful had happened.. ' Cowards Driven. Sack. . "There .was very little confusion on the deck. . Once a group of men shouted that they would not be separated from their wives if it became necessary to take to lifeboats and made a rush to find, accommodations for "themselves The. captain seemed to straighten -out his shoulders and his face was set .with determination. , "'Get back there, you. cowards,' he roared. 'Behave yourselves, like men. Look at these women. Can you not be as brave as they?' "The men fell back and from that moment there seemed to be a spirit of resignation all over the ship. Husbands and wives clasped each other and burst Into tears. Then a few minutes later came tho order for the women and children to take to the boats.. ."I did not hear an outcry from the women or men. Wives left their husbands' sides and without a word were led to the boats. One little Spanish girl/ a bride, was the only exception. She. wept bitterly and it was almost necessary to drag 'her into the boat. Her husband went-down with ."the ship. "Right here I want to.sajr something about the utter unpreparedness -of. the Titanic for a shipwreck. The lifeboats were so bungllngly .fastened to the davits in the first place that it was hard work to get them free.. Half the" collapsible boats were so stiff that they could not be opened and were useless. Those that were not already-opened and ready for use were unavailable also for none on board seemed to understand how they worked. ,' "Hundreds more could have been saved if these collapsible boats had worked properly. "One of,the lifeboats had a big hole in the bottom. A plug had fallen out,.I believe. -When it was loaded and .lowered over the side into the sea it began to fill at once. At this point the fifth iifficer proved "himself a hero. .-Women in the leaking boat were screaming with fright and tearing off their clothing in wild and fruitless efforts, to, plug up the hole. ' , -. "The boat filled to the gunwales before any'were saved." The. brave fifth officer to my knowledge rescued 19 of the women in this boat, some of whom had fallen over the side into the sea. It was finally hauled alongside and -eplugged, loaded and relaunched. "Nothing impressed mo more about the whole terrible affair than tho absolute absence of panic. They tell mo that something of a panic ensued after out .boat bad pulled away, but I do not know anything about it . "We rowed all night. I took an oar and sat beside the Countess Do Bothe. Her maid had an oar and so did mine. The air was freezing cold, and it was not long'before the only man that appeared to know anything about rowing commenced to complain ;that, his hands were freezing.
