London, 1-Vb. 7. - The Tuseania remained afloat for two hours after being torpedoed. The condition of some of the survivors of ih� Tuseania was pitiable. Many had cast aside all their clothes and had been swimming about for two hours before, being rescued. Order Prevailed Proof of tho order which prevailed j on the Tuseania is given by the landing of two typhoid and two pneumonia cases without, bad effect. Forty of the survivors were taken to hospitals. In the majority of cases they are suffering from injuries as a result of accidents in the lowering of life boats or in consequence of sliding down ropes. The survivors are proud of the behavior of the only two women on the Tuseania. They went, down a rope in fine style, laughing. An American officer said: "Everything went well with us during the voyage. Many of our men had never been to sea before and I mUHt say they stood it like soldiers. "We wore one of a powerful convoy. "We were instantly disabled. All the lights went out. An order rang out sending the troops to their boats stations and to get the lifeboats out. The shock was not severe. It was more of a crunching in feeling that went through the ship than of a direct blow. There naturally was a good deal of confusion. You cannot lower a score of lifeboats from the height of an upper deck in the darkness without some confusion, but at no time was there a panic. "Even before some of us had grasped the situation British destroyars were dashing along side. Such soldiers as had been lowered in lifeboats were put on board destroyers. A few men who had jumped overboard in the first excitement were picked up. I be lieve one or two lifeboats were smash od in launching. "The destroyers took off our men; The s]acker wil| he sl in splendid style, with perfect order. nl afc the 0rpheum. * "The soldiers immediately lined up 1 and while standing at attention as one | man began to sing "My Country 'Tis ; ;>f Thee" and tho "Star Spangled Ban-j ner."
