A message from Cape Race at 4:10 o'clock this morning brought the news that E. C. Ostby of the firm of Ostby & Barton and his daughter, Miss Helen R. Ostby, of this city, who sailed on the wrecked liner Titanic, were among the rescued on the Carpathia, headed for New York.

Mr. Ostby and his daughter left Providence the middle of last Januray for a trip through Egypt and southern Europe.

In addition to E. C. Ostby and his daughter, Miss Helen Ostby, another Providence man on the Titanic was James Lamb, who has been in England on a two or three months visit, and his sister, Mrs. John Lyons of the Wanskuck district, received word by letter that he would return on the Titanic.

Another passengers on the steamship, bound for Providence, is Harry Solomon, who was on his way here from London, intending to make his home in this city. At the present time Mr. Solomon's father is visiting John Wolf of 78 Lippitt street and is anxiously waiting news of the wreck.
