Ireland and later went down. It is believed that her passengers aie saved. No details of how they may -have been rescued, however, are at "hand. One message received here says "It- is not known how many of the Lusitanin's passengers were saved." Relief was immediately sent out from Queenstown. If she floated a reasonable length of time before go- ing down it is possible that some oi the rescuing ships got t-o her side. It is believed that the Lusitania's wa- ter tight bulkheads would tend to keep her alloat. Two. hundred .of the passengers aboard the Cunarder were transferred to her from the steamer Cameronia before she left New York. ence of German submarines in the trans-Atlantic lanes oi travel has beea indicated by the sinking during the last few days of other British vessels of! the Irish coast.

I Description of Boat I The Koyal naval reserve S. S. Lu- sitauia, together with her sister ship the Maurctania, was built by special arrangement, between the admiralty. 'und the Cimard S." S. Co., tho goy-' ernuient navine a stihsidv of two mil- lion pounds sterling, and in return the ships were built from what was practically admiralty design, with particular" attention to the nead of the fast unarmored cruiser, such as guu positions, coal etc. Tho entire crews were nearly all reserve men, and guns were carried in the hold, so that at shortest no- tice the Atlantic liners could be con- verted into ships of war. The annovmceminii was made yes- terday that the 'admiralty has re- leased" the Mauritania, which was to resume sailings bet-ween Liverpool and New York. Ten years ago wbsn these ships were projected, the bat-tic cruiser was unknown and these two ships with nominal speed oi twenty-five knots, frequently exceeded in prac- tice. were a reply to tlie fast imarm- ored German cruisers then btlilt, whose declared object was to prey on enemy's commerce. The admiralty, was "much criticized at the time, both by supporters and opponents of the government, for tying up so large a sum in ships whose naval value was problematic, but lor the time being they were the fastest ocean-going craft in the world, and as liners long had undisputed favor with the weaU ithy trans-Atlantic travelling .public. the Lusitania was built at- Clyde- bank, beine; commissioned and.regis- tered at Liverpool in 1S07. She has gross tonnage, with, a -length j oi 763 feet, beam 8S ieet.
