Several Vessels Spend Day Rescuing
More Than 1200 Passengers
And Sailors
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, Oct. 26-The sinking of
the Italian liner Principessa Mafelda
off the Brazilian coast today caused
the greatest excitement in years at
Lloyd's as the marine insurance mar-
ket suffered a considerable loss
I through the sinking.
The hull was insured in Italy at a
valuation of 7,000,000 lira (approxi-
mately $360,000), but the Italian com-
pany reinsured in London, also plac-
ing coverage for considerable sums
on the vessel's general cargo.
Before the war S'enator Marconi,
inventor of wireless, made a number
of radio and kite-flying experiments
aboard the Mafelda.
A half dozen or more steamships
VXspent nearly all of today rescuing
more than 1200 passengers and mem-
bers of the crew of the Italian liner,
Princepessa Mafelda, which sank last
night near Bahia, Brazil,
Latest advices are that the ship
was sunk as a result of an explosion
caused by the breaking of a screw
shafting. The explosion tore great
holes in the side of the vessel and it
sank within half an hour.
Think All Rescued
Captains of rescue vessels claimed
to have rescued nearly all of those
aboard the Mafelda and hope to res-
cue the others.
In Rome immense crowds gathered
about the offices of the Navigazione
Generale Italian, owners of the vessels
for news of friends and relatives
among the passengers, most of whom
were emigrants en route to Brazil and
BAHIA, Brazil, Oct. 26-The ex-
plosion which sent the Italian liner
Principessa Mafeda to the blottom was
caused by the breaking of a screw
shafting which tore open the vessel's
side, according to a report received
here. One report here is that the
captain, of one rescuing vessel showed
great courage in tying up alongside
the sinking vessel which went under
within half an hour after the explo-
sion. Tis vessel is said to have saved
200 passengers.
RIO JANEIRO, Brazil, Oct. 26-The
Principessa Mafalda, reputedly the
fastest in the European-South Ameri-
can service, and en route from Genoa
to Rio Janeiro and Buenos Aires, sak
near the Abrolhos rocks, 30 miles
southeast from Baleine and about 40
miles off the coast from Caravelias,
midway between Balhal and Raio Jan-
eiro. a-


Word received here by wireless at
Pernambuco said that the vessel sent
out its first S O S call at 7:17 p. in.,
and sank severalhours later, at 11
p. mn. after her boilers had exploded.
Although shipping circles here said
that there were 1,600 persons aboard
the liner, the Rio Janeiro agent of
the Navigazione Generale Ita liana,
owners of the vessel, said the number
of persos aboard the vessel was 1,-
208, of whom 240 were members oif
the crew. All but 110 of the passen-
gers were Italian emigrants bound
for a new homeland in Brazil and
Argentina, 741 of the passengers be-
ing bound for Montevideo and Buenos.
The agent of the company said he
had no word as to the cause of the
disaster, but thought that it possibly
might be due to an explosion in the
engine room. No word of the number
saved and those drowned had been
received at the steamship office.
Four Ships In Vichilty
The first S O S call, of the liner
brought four steamships which were
in cruising distance to her aid, and
in the darkness of the night the
crews of these vessels went to work
heroically to rescue the victims of the
The Gorman steamship Athena res-
cued 400 passengers, radio advices
said, while the British steamer Em-
pire Star picked up 200. First ad-
vices said that the French steamer
Formose had saved 120 persons, but
messages received at Pernambuca to-
day place the number saved by this
vessel at 400.
The British steamer Radioleine also
is known to have reached the scene
of the disaster, but no word was re-
ceived as to whether she had picked
