NEWS ONLY FROM AMERICA

Chicago Record-Herald

All news on the subject still comes exclusively from New York.  No wireless communication appears to have been established with this side.  A dispatch just received from Liverpool says the White Star officials have received information from the Olympic of the sinking of the Titanic and of the saving of many of the passengers and crew, and adds that the offices of the company are besieged by friends of the passengers making inquiries.

Writing under the impression that the Titanic was saved, the newspapers call attention to the absence of any dry dock on the American seaboard large enough to accommodate such a vessel and also to the coincidence of accidents happening to the companion ships, Olympic and Titanic.
