HALIFAX, April 17.-Capt. Hains of the Parisian, when communicated with, reported that at 10:30 o'clock Sunday night, it was in communication with the Titanic, being 150 miles away.
The Titanic was then safe. The operator on the Parisian retired soon after and nothing was known of the disaster until Monday morning.
The weather Sunday night was clear and starlight. It is the belief the Titanic struck a low lying iceberg, not more than 10 feet out of the water and 70 feet submerged.
With the ship going at high speed such a berg would rip the bottom open, probably as far as the engineroom, and this probably accounts for its going down so quickly after it struck. Had it been a high berg it would have been visible far oft.
