Senator Simon Guggenheim of Colorado, all but despairing of getting any news from his brother Benjamin, who is believed lost with the Titanic, departed for New York this morning to await the arrival of the Carpathia. He has only the faintest hope that his brother may perhaps be aboard or that some news may he given of him by the other passengers. Senator Guggenheim, too, still clings to the belief that his brother may possibly have been picked up by a fishing vessel or some other craft.

All day yesterday Senator Guggenheim was in communication with his New York office and the offices of the White Star Company in the hunt for his brother. He searched vainly for a scrap of news until far into the night. He and Mrs. Guggenheim today took a morning train for New York.
