Capt. E. J. Smith, R. S., who was in charge of the Titanic, was an uncle of Alex. Smith of White street, Red Bank. The latter Mr. Smith has been a resident of Red Bank for some time, conducting a garage in White street, near Broad street. He stated yesterday that he had heard no details of the appalling disaster with the exception of what had been printed in the newspapers, but was sure that if the boat sank and if the report of the large number of lives lost was true, that his uncle was among them, as he would be the last to leave the ship.
