Paris, April 16--News of the Titanic disaster has caused the utmost excitment here, especially in the American colony, many of whose residents had friends on board the ill-fated vessel.  Great throngs congregated in the streets until early today for the latest bulletins of the wreck.

Nearly 300 of the Titanic's passengers made their bookings here and went aboard at Cherborg.  Col. John Jacob Astor engaged passage here as did also Mr. and Mrs. George D. Widener and Mrs. J. W. M. Cardeza and T. D. M. Cardeza.
