Testimony of Albert Haines, page 657
    Mr. HAINES. The lifeboats; yes, sir. Then I went and stood by my own boat, sir, No. 9.
    Senator SMITH. On which side? 
    Mr. HAINES. On the starboard side.
   Senator SMITH. What happened then?
   Mr. HAINES. We had the boat crew there, and Mr. Murdoch came along with a crowd of passengers, and we filled the boat with ladies, and lowered the boat, and he told me to lay off and keep clear of the ship. I got the boat clear, sir, and laid out near the ship.

   Senator SMITH. Mr. Murdoch told you to get into this boat?
   Mr. HAINES. Yes, sir. I was in charge of that boat. That was my own boat, there being two sailors with me.
   Senator SMITH. What were their names?
   Mr. HAINES. One was named McGow (McGough), and there was one by the name of Peters. That was my boat's crew.
