LAKEWOOD, April 16---Included among the first cabin passengers on the Titanic were Mrs. A. T. Compton, her daughter, Miss S. W. Compton, and her son, A. T. Compton Jr., of Lakewood and New York. The last-named is a large stockholder in the Laurel House and is also interested in the Waumbeck at Jefferson, N. H.

Mrs. Compton and her daughter had been abroad about a year, and Mr. Compton left this country last November.

At the Laurel House this morning it was said that no word had been received as to their fate. They spent a greater part of their time here, and were well known in the social set.
