Queenstown Folk Bar Heads for
Day as Lusitania. Victims Are
Slowly Carted to Cemetery
in Elm-Shaded Hills.
QPEENSTOWN, May 11 Ninety-two
passengers of the Cunard line steamer
Lusitania who formed part of that piti
ful handful of maimed, dead and dying
brought ashore with the survivors of
the disaster that followed the attack
on th vessel by a German submarine
last Friday, were buried yesterday with
services that have no parallel in hist
ory. Under a sky in which not a single
cloud floated and to the strains ot
liymns played by British soldiers, they
were laid to rest two miles behind
Queenstown In a cemetery bursting
with Spring- greenery and tucked be
tween hills flaming with gorge.
Queenstown Suddenly Realises.
The services at tho graves began at
4 o'clock and at half-past 4 the sod of
Ireland waa being shoveled on the
Queenstown never sensed the full
horror of the Lusitania disaster until
now. L'p to the time that the long
stream ot - oof fins began to disappear
over the hm behind the town there
was about the affair what, with the
continued searches for survivors and
the bustle about the morgue, something
of tha unusual and theatric. When the
funeral started, however, the realiza
tion came ttiat, each of these cheap cof
fins held a body and that In the At
lantic, less than 20 miles away, there
were more than 1000 others all vic
tims of a German submarine.
City . Pare Respect to UcaL
The townspeople stood hatless nearly
all. forenoon as- the coffins were con
veyed, to the cemetery on carts. This
process required hours, and it was not
until. -3 o'clock that the funeral pro
cession proper left the Cunard offices
at- the waterfront. There were only
three' bodies, one each in a hearse, in
this cortege, .the other. 89 already hav
iiwr bnea placed in the graves.
With British' army band playing
Chopin's "funeral March." tho funeral
procession marched through the
crooked streets, past the cathedral,
which stands on the highest point in
the town, and then took its course
along an undulating country road, now
rising and now sinking, between green
hills. Along this country road country
folk were clustered for the most part,
perched on stone fences behind the
soldiers who guarded the road the en
tire two miles from the cathedral to
Muffled Drums Beaten.
Those waiting in the graveyard first
heard, borne faintly on. the soft breeze,
the notes of the funeral march and
then the sound of the muffled drums.
A moment later the sun flashed on
the band instruments and the cortege
took form in the distance. - Not for
more than an hour, however, did It
reach the lane bordering the cemetery,
which it entered in the following or
A Major of the Royal Irish infantry

constabulary and' a group cf Protestant
churchmen. Then in black robes cams
13 priests, and behind them were the
hearses draped with British flaps, to
the rear of which, trudged the mourn
ers, among: them several American sur
vivors of the disaster.
The sailors from the steamer Way
farer, which was recently torpedoed,
but was able to make port, came next,
and behind them the members of the
corporation of Cork, headed by the
Lord .Mayor. A company of marines
followed, and then came sailors of the
various British ships in the harbor,
Tho British officers, numbering more
than 100, marched erect, but slow. Next
in line were Captains Miller and Castle,
attaches of the American Embassy In
London. Both were dressed in' khaki
British Admiral In Cortege.
A party of British naval officers and
Admiral Sir Charles Coke, of Queens
town, followed them. The most Rev.
Robert Browne, Bishop of ClOyne, rode
In a carriage.
The procession was a full, hour In
passing into the cemetery. There sol
diers guarded the walls as six other
soldier pallbearers lifted the coffins
from the hearses and set them beside
the graves. The three coffins rested
beside separate graves. The other 89
had previously been placed in three
irreat pits 65 In one, in layers two
deep and 12 each in the other two.
Just before the service started, a
woman rushed to the side of one of the
nuce graves and asked to Have -the
coffin in one corner raised This was
done, and trembling the woman bent
over and gazed at the face within it'
Then she shook her head and turned
away. Apparently she had-not found
the one ehe sought.'
Several Services Conducted.
Conducted by Bishop Browne, the
Catholic service was held first, the
choir boys bearing incense appearing
from a cluster of elms and coming to
the grave side. The Church pf Ire
land service, that is. the Episcopalian,'
followed, and finally the non-con
lormist rites were performed. As the
last words of this service were spoken
the muffled drums rolled and the
familiar hymn, "Abide With Me"
.Sailors who had replaced the soldier
pall bearers then lowered the cofnins
Into the small graves and simultane
ously the earth .began to thud on the
coffins. The crowd, nearly all with
eyes wet. slowly left, some to take
the jaunting cars, but most of them
to trudge across the fields to the city.
As they reached the crest of the hill
Immediately above, the harbor flashed
Into view and in it the flag on every
vessel fluttered at half mast.
No Americans, so far as known, were
among those burled. A few of
the dead were members of the Lusi
tania's crew, but the majority of them
either were unidentified persons, in
cluding a number of small children and
babes, or persons the financial cir
cumstances of whose relatives forced
them to be content with the interment

pened to be.

NEW YORK, May 11 Although a
number of additional names of sur

given in the latest revised list issued
here by the Cunard Steamship

cablegram which indicated that her
name, previously given as among the
survivors, had been confused with that
of Mrs. F. S. Hammond, a steerage pas
senger of Toronto, who was saved.
Ogden H. Hammond was saved, but the
