BELFAST AND THE DISASTER

Belfast Newsletter

Another Local Man Among the Rescued.
Intimation was received in the city yesterday that another local member of the crew of the Titanic, in the person of Mr. John Haggan, of Thorndyke Street, Mountpottinger, had been rescued. Mr. Haggan's father received a joyful surprise in the form of a cablegram stating that his son, who had been fireman om the Titanic, was saved, and that he was returning home on the Red Star liner Lapland. The corrected list of survivors issued by the White Star Company and published in our columns yesterday contained the name of John Murdock, another fireman, who had also resided in Thorndyke Street, and his wife was naturally overjoyed receiving the cheering news. As was expected. the Lord Mayor's Relief Fund  is receiving generous support, and a further list of subscriptions appears today, the amount now in hands being over £7.000.
