I agree with Aaron; the sailing ship is simply bobbing in the sea, not sinking.
Aaron, what paper is that clipping from? I don't know why Hapag's Deutschland would still be referred to by that name in late 1912. The Ellis Island ship manifests don't include any for "Deutschland" after 1910 but do include a number for "Victoria Luise" in 1912, although not for the dates you mentioned.
The 1912 departure and arrival listings were published in 'The Sun' New York newspaper. I checked the British newspaper archive and searched for "SS Deutschland" and she was mentioned in May 1913 in quite a number of British papers. Without subscribing I can only see a few sentences from each paper e.g.
Thursday 15th May 1913......'The German steamer Deutschland, Hamburg for New York.....ATLANTIC LINER IN TROUBLE. Lloyd’s New York agent telegraphs that the German steamer Deutschland, Hamburg for New York had her engines stopped through damage.......MISHAP TO THE DEUTSCHLAND, Lloyd’s New York agent telegraphs German steamer Deutschland, Hamburg for New York.....stopped through engine damage.'
