TUB EIGHT ..MUSICIANS who went down In tho Titanic and who wMre playing "Nearer My God to Thoo" when all'.tho boats had gone, wero under the leadership of Bandmaster Wallace Hartley, Dews- bury, England, who transtoried from the Mamctanla to uu his duties on the biggest. steamer of th White Star line, and who, hidden ally, was soon to have married young Englishwoman. Under Har ley's direction vio lintel: Herbert Taylor, pianist; Fre bass viol; Georgo Woodward 'cellist, and Messrs.' Bralley, Krln and Brelcoux, who played when th others wore off duty. On the Celtic, which docked in Net York on Saturday, 20th April last were John S and Louis Cross cellist and bass viol of orchestra on that steamship. When they go shore leave they told something aboil tho. men on the Titanic .thon they had made many voyages. The; also were acquainted with the cpndi tions under which the men lived oi the Titanic, and gave a graphic idea of the manner in which they have responded when the call to dutj came, "Some were already in. bed and some were probably smoking when tbe ship hit the said John S Carr. "Tho Titanic had a special lounging and smoking room, with the sleeping rooms opening-off it. It was so late that they all must'have been tlrars ;ivion the first shock came. Bandmaster Hartley was -a man with the highest sort; of sense of duty. I don't supt'MC he" waited to be sent for, aut after finding how dangerous the situation was he probably called his men together and .began playing.. I that he often said that music was a bigger weapon for stopping dls order than anything .on cfirth. He .new the value of the weapon he had and I think he.proved his point." Hume the Viollnlit- "Tho thing that hits me Louis Cross, "is.the loss of 1-Iap- violinlsts. Hume was the life of ev cry ship he ever. played on and was beloved by from cabin hoys to captains on the White Star Line. He was a young Scotchman, npt.over -H, and came of a musical family His father and his grandfather -before him had been violinists and makers of musical 'instruments. The name is well known-lh Scotland because of it. His real first name was John, but the Scotch nickname stuck: to. him and it Was as Jock Hume that he was known to every one; on the White. Star Line, even when he 'sailed as bandmaster. 'QveT in Dumfries, I. hap- pen to know there's a sweet young girl hoping against hope. Jock was to have been married-the next time that he made the trip across trie ocean He was a young., man of exceptional musical ability; jt be had lived I be lleve he'Would not long have remain- ed a of a ship's orchestra. He itudied a great deal, although he could pick up without trouble difficult com positions Tthich would have taken oth ers long to learn, "The c-dd part ot it is that Jock Hume's mother had a premonition, that something would happen to him on this trip He was on the sister ship Olympic a few months ago when on her maiden voyage i she collided with the warship There was a rent torn in the of the Olympic at that time, and the be towed back to Belfast. "Young Hume went back, to his home m. Dumfries to spend th-e time until she should be repaired, when his mother heard oi dent she begged him not to go 'bacs :o life on tbe 'sea. He told numbers of people in Liverpool about it :Iume had a dream of aome sort ffnO said she w as sure no good would come of It Jf he went back.' Jock had his eye on going In for concert music sooner or later, hut he laughed at his mother's fears and took the chance o go on the Titanic He was known on manv ships and had friends m New York, Last winter he got to knew Americans who were wintering at he Constant Springs Hotel in King- ton, Jamaica, lie had been band- nastcr on the.Carmania of the; Cun- ird Line and had with the or- Iieatra of the Majestic, the Caliror lia of the Anchor Line'and the Me- iantlc of the White: Star company, which piles between Liverpool and Montreal. "Hume was a' light-hearted, "nne cmpered young fellow with curly ilond hair, a light completion and a ileatant imlle. He IE mourned by very 'man who knew him. "Another thing ;of which we are all alklng Is that Fred Clark, the bass iol of'the. Titanic, should have sone own oti''his first trip across the At- antic. well known'In con: ert In Scotland and had never snip- ed before. The White JHar people ere particularly anxious to have good, itulc on the tint trip of the (Titanic nd offered him good) pay to make nit one trip.

Ciark Jolly com- puny and of Just before lie sailed a number of peo- ple wero Joking with him about his finally going to ten, and he said: 'Woll, you' know It would be Just my luck to go down with tho ship. I've kept away Prom It so ;long It might finish me on this trip.' .Then he laughed cheerily, and all his friends joined in. They nil considered tho Titanic ns'uafe as a hotel, A Flnlihed Pianist "Herbert Taylor, the pianist, was considered a master of his Instru- ment.' He a man of an Intellect- ual turn of mind, with a thin, studious I'ace. He was married and his home was In London.: About Woodward, the 'cellist, I can tell you but little. His homo was in-Leeds. The other three Krins and made up the.trlo which played in the second cabin and in tbe restaurant. They hart been playing together for some but neither Carr nor my- self shipped with them on any voy- age. It's a mistake from the technical point of view to call a or- chestra a said Carr. "The term is a survival-of the days when.-they really had a brass hand on board. On all the big steamships now the niusic is given by men who are thorough masters of their instruments. -The Ti- tanic orchestra was considered one of the finest which was ever boated when the ship put out from tbe other Bid1 and I think the way the men finished up showed that they had about good stuff inside as any who went down in the Atlantic.

Rutland Bough- on, the English composer and critic, whose last Birmingham Festival nov- elty was described us a Socialist tract disguise, has written a "Song of jiberty" and a group of "Songs of tVomanhood." which he has dedicat- d to the "awakening womanhood of Britain."
