A Taring Hero Among tn Victims
Cincinnati, u ' ..y 23. This city has
had Its share ot .iocklng disaster!, but
never has one happened where such a
pitiful loss of lite occurred as that ot yes
terday, and where, with so little occasion,
In less than fifteen minutes sixteen or sev
enteen persons Invo perished. At half
)ast one o'clock J. A. Green, city editor of
the Tlmes-Stor, upon going up tho stairway
to Ids ofllcc, saw dense clouds ot smoko is
suing from the windows of tho building
Nos. 10 and 21 West Sixth street, and Im
mediately telephoned to tho fire depart
ment. An alarm brought tho cmrlncs al
most instantly, and as tho tircmen could
reach the building from the front and rear,
it was not fifteen minutes before tho
fire was under control. It was at first
thought that only flvo women who bad
Jumped from the fifih-story windows had
been killed, but when tho flro had been
lubducd so that firemen could enter ten
dead bodies I) Ing nn the fifth floor and one
on the fourth were found. One man, after

them down by a ropo lwld on thn roof, was
himself killed by tlio bunting ot the sains

hands to their faces, blackened in death.
They lay upon benches, tables and other
things, and some on the floor. Their cloth

backs of their hands was scorched. "It
was a terrible sight tho worst I ever saw
In my experience," said the Chief after his
tlslL "The girls lay where they bad fallen
In wild and helpless despair." It has now
been fairly ascertained that the fire started
from n can of benzine on thu second floor
near tho elevator. A toy on that floor sss
ho heard a report and Instantly fire leaed
to tlio elevator shaft and darted up It. The
shaft reaches to the lop of the building and
"roni the third story !o tho fifth was reache
y a wooden slnlrw ay, which was tho only
nenns of access to those floors. Theclcva.
ir shaft to add to Its combustibility, was
:ncacd In thin wooden lattice work. The
second floor whero tho fire started was the
press room; the third tho composing room,
the fourth a storage and waste room, and
the fifth tho folding room. As soon as ihe
flro started John hiflllvan, a )nung man,
cousin of tho proprietor, ran up the stair
way to tlio fifth floor to give warning to the
girls. Instantly almnot be found that be
was too late to get them down tho stairway
and that Ids owu retreat wns cut off. What
he did for tho frightened girls could only be
told by the gllnt'ises that could bo seen of
him at the smoking window w hence four of
the girls bsd already lcaed to their death.
J. It. Klnslc)'s son and Ids foreman had
gone to the roof of their building adjoining
on the west ami knowing that the
oini.i wr.iiB lurnisoNEn
nn the floor below, they procured a ropo and
lowered it to the window where Sullhan
was. He Instantly grasped It and, fasten
ing one of the Kills tn it, helped her out ot
the window, and Kltisley and Shradcr
lowered her tafely to tho sidewalk. The
rope wrs brought up, and Sullltan again
quickly fastened on another girl and sent
her down safely. The rope came a third
tunc, and as the other girls by this time
were all suffocated, or were afraid to ven
ture, Sullhan fastened tho ropo to his own
body and was being: lowered, when, as he
Vxoshnlt way down, the flames shot out of
a window am. he fell headforemost tn tho
sidewalk in the presence of a liorrlfled
crowd of pcoplo who bad witnessed bis
heroism. When the girls were jumping
from tho w indow a large colored man heroic
ally tried to catch them and r break the
force of thu fall. He nearly lost his
own llfo In tho attempt. Within
ten minutes after the flro beisn the
patrol wagons were called Into use to carry
away the wounded and killed. Aa well as
can bo ascertained there wero about fifty
occupants of the bulldlug, of whom twenty
or twentj -flvo were girls In the fifth story.
The bojs wero on the second and third

Tlio following Is a copy of the letter which
he sent to John Roach, her builder: "You
will, I think, recognize that the perform
ances of tho Dolphin thus far Impose
upon me the duty of exercising an un
usual degree of caution In dealing with
her. What would hae been reasonable
prudence In mo seme weeks since would not
bo so now. It Is quite possible that the dif

trips may havo been dno to accident and
temporary causes, but) ou would not now
expect her to bo accepted without your
having an opportunity to demonstrate be
yond all question the high character ot her
work. I understood jou to assent to
this nronosltlon In our conversation
yesterday, and while I don't understand
you now to claim for her the speed
and power contemplated, )ou do Insist that
as far as your part Is concerned tho ptans
have been proticrly cxccuteiL I have
given orders In accordance with our arrange
ment )estcrday for a further trial to bo
held under similar conditions as that of last
Thursday, the 28th Inst In addition to
this I must ask that she must lie put to a
similar run at sea upon such a day as jou
mav name. I do not Insist upon her full
horse power of fifteen knots speed upon
this Utter trial If deemed by jou too trjlng
upon her new machinery. A speed of
twelve knots will answer the conditions un
der which I wish to place her. She should
be loaded to something near her lines, and
tho expense of this latter trial will be borne
by tho Government In case she Is accepted."

ment, the postmasters and others subject to
removal should bo divided into two classc4,
the first offensive partisans and tho second
neglecting to give attontlon to duties. Ha
then gave his definition ot an offensive
partisan. It was expected that every post
master ahould keep his office In a convtn
lent placo for the public In good condition,
and in all respects a place wberu peo
ple of all Units could go without being
subjected to annojanee. If, on the con
trary, a postmaster shoubl make his offico

and In other wa s offend the people, who
called there for their mall, such a man
could be properly described as an oltenslvo
partisan and a fit subject for removaL Thu
