A. W. Newell's Two Daughters Among Survivors, but No Report of Him
Special to The New York Times
BOSTON, April 16---Nearly a dozen Boston men, known to have been aboard the Titanic, are unaccounted for. Some were accompanied by wives and daughters, who are reported safe on the Carpathia. Among the missing are A. W. Newell, President of the Fourth National Bank, whose two daughters, Madeline and Marjorie, were rescued, and Jacques Futrelle, the author, whose wife was saved. Although the names of Mr. and Mrs. E. Kimball are not contained in the "saved" list, relatives hope that they are accounted for in the names "Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kimberley," as received by wireless. Mr. Kimball is president of a piano company.

Others living near Boston whose names not appear among those of the survivors are George Q. Clifford, President of the Belcher Last Company, of Stoughton; Walter C. Porter, of Worcester, also a last manufacturer; Herbert H. Hilliard and Timothy J. McCarthy, buyers for a local dry goads firm; Percival W. White, cotton manufacturer of Winchendon, and his son, Richard.
