HAYLE MAN ONE OF THE STEWARDS

Hayle Weekly Mail

On enquiring at Hayle we find that no passengers from this town have sailed in the ill-fated vessel, but that Mr. Samuel Rule, of Hayle, occupied the position of chief bathroom steward.
Mr. Rule, who formerly lived at Clifton-terrace, is a brother of Capt. Rule, who now lives at Hayle. Mr. Rule has been in the service of the White Star Line for nearly 40 years and has been in all their vessels. He has been under Capt. Smith ever since that officer has been in command, and on more than one occasion has been heard to speak of the splendid qualities of his superior. Mr. Rule has been in the Olympic since she started, but was transferred to the Titanic as soon as she came to Southampton.
Late on Wednesday afternoon we were informed that nothing definitely had been heard of Mr. Rule, and not for some days would it be known if he were saved.
