FOREIGN CONSULS' BANQUET.

All the heads of the foreign Consulates in London were present last night at the Savoy Hotel at their annual banquet. The Lord Mayor, was was to have been the principal guest of the evening, was prevented by indisposition from being present.
Baron H. Heyking, Russian Consul, who presided, said that they all wished to place on record their sympathy in connection with the Titanic disaster, and their admiration of the bravery displayed.
They had, he said, gathered to inaugurate their association, formed some time ago for the purpose of promoting good feeling between the honorary and paid sections of the Consular Service.
Mr. Sheriff Hanson and Sir George Reid were also among the speakers.

TITANIC MEMORIAL.

A meeting of the Ladies' Committee in connection with the Belfast Titanic Memorial was held in the City Hall, under the presidency of the Lady Mayoress (Mrs. M'Mordie). It was reported that the Improvement Committee had favourably entertained the proposal to grant a site in Donegall-square North provided the design of the memorial was approved of by the committee. It was decided to get into communication with a number of eminent sculptors.

General.

F. FISHER. - The Titanic was the largest ship ever built, being very much larger than the Great Eastern.

SOUTHAMPTON'S BURDEN OF GRIEF.
600 Families Plunged in Mourning and Distress.

NOTABLE RELIEF WORK.
Townsmen Gather at Solemn Memorial Service.

[From Our Special Correspondent.]
SOUTHAMPTON, Saturday Night.

Grief-stricken at the loss of so many of their seagoing citizens, Southampton Corporation, leading townsmen, and clergy of every denomination determined to hold two memorial services in the town. One of these was carried out with deepest solemnity and reverence today, at the old parish church of St. Mary, where great crowds who desired to participate found it impossible to gain admission.
Long before the proceedings began the church was crowded. In the midst of the throng was Mrs. Smith, widow of the Titanic's heroic captain. Among the official mourners were the Mayor, the Sheriffs, and the members of the Corporation, all of whom wore their official robes.
Closely following them came the Harbour Board, accompanied by men bearing the silver oar, the insignia of the port. This oar was heavily wreathed in crape. The members of the Board of Guardians, and of other public bodies, also joined in the tribute of respect and admiration for the gallant dead, and of sympathy for those left by them in the care of the nation. Others present were the Consular representatives of various nations. Everywhere flags were floating at half-mast, including those on ships in port.
At the docks the officials of the White Star Line and the engineers and sailors of other vessels were gathered in processional order, and, accompanied by representatives of all other shipping companies, as well as a detachment from the Gordon Boys' Home, marched to the church to take part in the service. Eight old comrades of the Gordon Boys were on the Titanic, and only two of them were saved.
The Marquis of Winchester, Lord Lieutenant of the county, was also in attendance, representing the King.

Stricken With Sorrow.

The Rev. Canon Durst conducted the service, and the Rev. R.A. Mitchell, of Highfields, read the lessons. The opening sentences of the burial service were read by the rector as he entered the church, and the entire congregation was stricken with sorrow at the renewed recollection of the calamity.
When the solemn notes of the fine old hymn, "Rock of Ages, cleft for me," rolled from the organ, the great concourse of people sang the words with peculiar solemnity. Many were almost too deeply touched to follow the words in their hymn books. The anthem "Blessed are the Departed" followed. Then Dr. Talbot, Bishop of Winchester, delivered an address full of sympathy with the bereaved. The singing of the hymn, "Eternal Father, strong to save," concluded the service.
A similar service will be held at the Congregational Church above Bar, the oldest Nonconformist church in the town, tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.
With the above sadly beautiful tribute to the memory of the brave, Southampton closed a week that will live in the memory. To the southern town the calamity has come as a more terrible blow than to any other part of the Empire. It was from there that most of the seamen, firemen, cooks, stewards, enginemen, and others of the Titanic's crew were recruited. The heroic captain of the vessel, who has done his duty as sea captains always do it, is also one of her sons.
Nowhere has the lesson of patience under the most torturing strain been more nobly taught than by the poor relatives of the sailors who now await reunion when there shall be no more sorrow on the sea. Day after day, and night after night, they attended outside the offices of the White Star Line in Canute-street. Day after day mothers and children hoped on and told each other that some at any rate of their loved ones were safe. At last, about seven o'clock on the fourth morning, the last list of names of survivors was posted up, and over 500 families knew the dread truth.

Children Left Fatherless.

It was the very bitterness of death that I saw in the eyes of those waiting women, and children when they had read down the list time after time and failed to find the name they sought.
One was the mother of eight children. She had been obliged to accept gifts of bread and other necessaries. Another had six children; many had five or four, and several at the moment of Nature's trial were face to face with the great bereavement.
"We have got about 600 families to provide for," Mr. Bowyer, the mayor, said to me, and his voice trembled with emotion, though he tried hard to appear cheerful. He was receiving and encouraging many weeping folk when I met him, and the strain of an eight hour sitting amid so much sorrow had impressed itself deeply on his face.
"We are getting money in very fast," he continued, "but we shall need so much. And the poor people are in such distress. I had still many of them to provide for as a result of the laying up of the ships by the coal strike. Many of them had nothing in the house with which they could raise money for food. And those husbands who have been saved will come home without clothes or money."
