It was reported last week that Mr. James Johnston, one of the Titanic’s stewards, was missing. A cable, however, has been received by his wife that he has been saved, and is on board the Lapland returining to England. Mr. Johnstone has his homer at 36, Church-road, Stanley, Liverpool. He is a native of Annan, Dumfrieshire, and was transferred from the Olympic to the Titanic. He was a steward on the Olympic at the time she collided with H.M.S. Hawke. His wife resides at the above address with her five children, the eldest son, who also goes to sea, having yesterday celebrated his twentieth birthday. The last time Mr. Johnstone was at home was five weeks ago last Monday, when he left for Belfast to join the Titanic prior to her going round to Southampton.
