Man Who Saved 45 Persons Says He Can't Support His Wife
CHICAGO, Jan. 16---Albert Horswill, who said he was in charge of the last lifeboat to leave the Titanic, and saved forty-five women and children, told Judge Uhlir in court to-day that he was unable to support his wife. Horswill, 38 years old, married an 18-year-old girl last November and deserted her a week ago.

"It would have been better if I had gone down with the Titanic," said Horswill. "I am working in a warehouse, but can't make enough to support one, let alone two."

Judge Uhlir sent the couple away together, after telling the sailor he must support his wife.
