Only one of the seventeen persons whose bodies were recovered by the cable ship Minia in the vicinity of the Titanic tragedy died from drowning, in the opinion of the cable ship’s physician. The other sixteen perished from exposure.

Of the seventeen bodies recovered, fifteen were brought to port, the other two, the bodies of unidentified firemen, being buried at sea.

Among the bodies preserved was that of Charles M. Hays, president of the Grand Trunk railway. It was shipped to his home at Montreal today on a special train. [Halifax, N.S., May 6]
