Special Dispatch to The North American
WILKES-BARRE, Pa., April 18---Charles Thomas, a small storekeeper of this city; Mrs. Joseph Thomas and infant son, Anthony Yosbik, Joseph and Peter Simon and Brenton Harry, all of this city, were aboard the steamship Titanic and their families believe that have perished, as they have scanned the list of survivors and have failed to find any names to give them hope.

The families have crowded about the ticket office of the White Star Line here in quest of news, and the announcement that there is no news for them has not served to send them away.

The local agency kept telegraph wires busy all day in the hope of getting something to satisfy the people, but to all queries came back the word that there was no late news.
