From the signal service this morning the report came that 337 lives had been saved from the passengers who embarked on the ill-fated Empress of .Ireland. The officials at Quebec are in constant touch with the government s earners Ladv Evelyn and Eureka and the number estimated is given by the rescuing vessels. The exact number of persons who sailed on the vessel is not known, but it is co'm-uited at ,350. The loss ot life would thus total over one thousand. The (epnrtment here is strangely helpless in the face. of the great disaster owing to its suddenness and to the fact that there appears to he nothing which can be done excepting to recover the bodies of the dead. Early this morning the department instructed its officials at -Quebec and other points to utilize anything and everything available to Tender assistance. The Canadian Pacific officers were also wired and assured c-T all the help which it was within the power of the government to give. In addition to the two vessels Lady Evelyn and Eureka, the Cartier, a survey steamer of the naval service department is believed to he in the vicinity. This is the third accident which has occurred on the St. -Lawrence route since the opening of .the navigation.. The effect of the present disaster upon the reputation ot the route is recalled here though the (apartment expresses the strong opinion that the accident was one which could not -have been avoided by the fact hot herself sink, and is under her own "steam on her way -to Quebec. A wire was received this morning from" the Brit-is i Board of Trade asking particulars of the disaster, the department cabled back that according to its reckoning 337 lives had been saved and it was feared that the others had perished. THE NEWS IN THE HOUSE The marine disaster oft Father Point overshadowed all else on Parliament Mill this -morning. When the House opened, a feeling of depression and gloom pervaded the chamber. The Prime Minister took his seat with a copy of the latest eitra in his band and i during the preliminary procecd-ngs the early story of the catastrophe was perused by him anu Hon. Geo. E. 'Foster, his desk mate.-.PREMIER SPEAKS When the orders of -the (lay were called, the Premier .rose with .the paper, iu hand.. "1 would like ,'co say just "a he said, "respecting the disaster, tidings of which have .been .brought to us today. In awful suddenness and in a dreadful toll oi life taken, the disaster is ona'whici brings a shock such. as. .we in this country have never felt before. I am speaking of the earlier reports. Later reports are more reassuring. 1 sincerely hope they are true. That this ship, only two hours out from Quebec in the deail pE night and witb passengers on board should be so badly damaged as to sink in ten or twenty minutes comes to us in tins country and this House as a most .appalling shock. I do not iu-lieve from (be reports which have come in that this is" a disaster whic i could 'have been averted 'by anyv thiug the country could have done in' rendering the navigation ot the St. Lawrence river: It came in a fog and could ndt' have been prevented by any safeguards to navigation. "In view of the magnitude of the disaster it is fitting that something s louhl be said in this House, that we should express our deep regret for the 'disaster -of our profound sympathy v for- those; bereaved." silt 'WILFRID DAUIUER "The hantf'of fato lias been heavy against dating the' past few Sir" Wilfrid Laur 'TMs'is' the 'third disaster "on 'the St..
