Testimony of
Samuel Hemming, Page 667
    Mr. HEMMING. After the ship had gone we pulled back and picked up seven.
    Senator SMITH. Who were they?
    Mr. HEMMING. I am not able to say, sir.
    Senator SMITH. Who else?
    Mr. HEMMING. Stewards, firemen, seamen, and one or two men, passengers; I could not say exactly which they were; anyway, I know there were seven altogether.
    Senator SMITH. Name what you can of them.
    Mr. HEMMING. There was one seaman named Lyons, and there were one or two passengers and one or two firemen. Dillon, a fireman, was one of them.

    Senator SMITH. How many died?
    Mr. HEMMING. Two.
   Senator SMITH. Which two?
    Mr. HEMMING. Lyons and - I do not know whether it was a steward or a fireman - one more man besides Lyons.

Lyons was buried at sea from the Carpathia.
