More claims against the White Star Line for damages inflicted by the wreck of the Titanic were received yesterday in the Federal District Court here. Pierre Mali, Belgian Consul in this city, received permission from Judge Holt to file claims, as administrator of the estates of Rosalie Govert Van Impe, Catherine Van Impe, Edmond Van Melkebeke, and Alphonse de Pelsmaeker, all Belgian subjects who were drowned in the wreck.

The claims amounting to $46,250, are based on the death of the persons named and the loss of their baggage. They bring up the total of the claims filed here against the White Star Line on account of the disaster to $16,850,362.
