SAFETY OF A HAYLE MAN - Mr. Samuel Rule

Capt. Rule of Hayle, has received a telegram from his niece announcing the safety of his brother, Mr. Samuel Rule, chief steward of the Titanic.

The telegram reads as follows:-
‘Anfield, Liverpool,-To Rule, Carnsew, Hayle. Father safe and well; had cable.’

Mr. Rule, who formerly lived at Clifton-terrace, is a brother of Capt. Rule, who now lives at Hayle. Mr. Rule has been in the service of the White Star Line for nearly 40 years and has been in all their vessels. He has been under Capt. Smith ever since that officer has been in command, and on more than one occasion has been heard to speak of the splendid qualities of his superior. Mr. Rule has been in the Olympic since she started, but was transferred to the Titanic as soon as she came to Southampton.
