San Francisco, Nov. 30. The falling
of the ventilator roof of the San Fran
cIsco anil Pacific Glass Works took
place about fifteen minutes before
o'clock yesterday afternoon, Just beforo
the beginning of the Stnnford-Unlvcr
slty of California game. The net re-
suit of the terrible catastrophe, so far
as reported, was eighteen dead and
eighty-five Injured. At the County hos
pltal twenty-throo Injured persons were
treated, and of that number two died.
The llallroad hospital on Mission
street, between Fourteenth and Fif

minor Injuries, went nway without
being treated, and two died. The sur
geons at tho City Receiving hospital
treated fifteen of the unfortunates, of
whom two died. At St. I.uko's hospital

surrounded by a high bonrd fence, but
this was an Inoffoctlvo bnrrler over
which tho men reaauy climbed. Tho

Tho favorlto position was tho rldgo
of tho narrow ventilator running tho
seventy-two feet span of tho main
structure Upon this ovor 100 persons
had clambered. Tho ventilator, whllo
covered with corrugatedolron, was n
frail structure, having been built with
a view to sustaining its own weight
and no more. Its supports were 1x0
scantlings, placed at considerable in
tervals. Tho football gamo had been In prog

of rock nnd firebrick, bound and hold
together by a network of posts, bands
nnd rods of Iron, it had tnken ovor a
month to heat this furnaco to tho re

rons wero fifteen tons of molten glass.

Whllo theso harrowing scenes were
being enncted on tho furnaco and floor
the plcturo nbovo made tho blood of
tho few spectators stand still. Some
of tho unfortunntes had their down
ward flight temporarily retarded by
coming in contact with the wooden
network of rafters, braces and Joists
that supported tho upper structure
One man could ho seen holding by his
leg to a beam nnd clutching the air in
the vain hopo of securing additional
support; the leg hold weakened, thcro
was a slipping, a giving away, a fall
through tho air, and another, body lay
Inert upon tho brick floor. The vain
clutching of tho air by those who
came near, or struck rafter or beam in
their descent, was most agonizing.
A touch of wclrdncss was added to
tho spectacle by somo of those who
had fallen through the roof ex
tricating themselves from tho heaps
of humans nnd walking nway, dazed,
but almost unsenthed. That their es
capes wero bordering on tho miracu
lous is seen bx tno fact that rertnln of

end of the furnace, which is covured
with n courso of ordinary tiro bi-Iek.

At 4 o'clock, when tho men under
Chief Sullivan nnd Captain Wlttmun

disaster seven charred nnd broken

tho building, lllood In pools nnd blood

injuries sustained by thoso who had
been carried away for treatment In tho
Illght over tho place where the
corpses had been laid was n CxO beam
which had been broken nnd splintered
by tho weight ot tho falling roof nnd
its living load. It mado the wonder
grow that nny of thoso who fell es
caped with their lives.
Tho Coroner's deputies placed tho
bodies one by ono upon a shuttcr-llko
section of corrugntcd Iron, but had

them to tho wagons that were to con

Upon tho Inst Iron stretcher was
placed tho heap of battered nnd torn

tho enthusiasts of both sides had re
