From early this morning when the first dispatches began to come over the wires the Journal office was besieged with inquiries about the fate of the mammoth steamship. In many cases the inquiries were prompted only by curiosity, but in others keen anxiety for the safety of relatives or friends who were believed to be aboard the ill-fated ship led to the queries.

Miss Esther Gracie Ogden, of 232 South Broad street, this city, sought to learn the fate of the Titanic’s passengers. Her cousin, Archibald Gracie, of Washington, was on the vessel returning from abroad, where he went five weeks ago for his health. Mr. Gracie’s wife spent the day in New York trying vainly to learn his fate. It is feared that he went down with the majority of the male passengers on the Titanic.
