The remainder of the sentence, If there

licemen hsd to retreat, and In the end
Amundsen went down, had himself to
be rescued and was only revived by
means of artificial respiration admin
istered in the street.
Koch and Amundsen started to chase
several young toughs who were making
trouble on One Hundred and Twenty
elshth street between Second and Third
avenues shortly before 1 o'clock. As
Second avenue was reached cries of
"Flrol" arose and In an Instant flames
burst from windows on the second floor
of the Jive-story tenement. At every
window except those on the seconcffloor
people were crying for help.
Patrolman Koch realised that on the
second floor the residents must have
been overcome. Followed by the vory
gangsters they had been chasing, Kooh
and Amunsdcn rushed up the stairs. At
tho hallway of tho second floor they
were met by a sheot iron Are door that
was locked. The policemen threw them
selves on It. but It would not budge. Ths
gangsters added their shoulders to the
door. With a crash the floor fell In
and the rescuers upon it. Flames shot
out over tha men struggling In a heap
on tho floor.
On up the stairs the flames went and
met the families who were now bury
ing down and orave tnem back to seek
a new way to safety by the roof.
CREPT THROUGH THE SMOKE
TO REC UE THEM.
A faint cry from an apartment on the
burning second floor was heard. Koch,
on his hands and linen, crept along the
corridor to a rear room, whence tho cry
had come. Amunadtn lay on the floor
beneath the flames. Borne of tha gang
lay on the stairs, others stood In lino
below, as Koch and Amunsden ordered.
Koch groped his way until he came
to Mrs. Amelia Carlson, forty-fire, a
widow, lying on the floor unconscious
with her three-year-old daughter Jen
nie In her arms, lie dragged the mother
and child along until Amunsden could
reach them and pull them along to ths
nearest of the gangsters, who passed
hem down the stairs and out Into ths
street. It was the cry of the child that
had been heard.
Meanwhile Policeman Martin, of the
same station, had sent In an alarm and
was helping families escaps over the
roofs. Some tried to get down by the
front fire escape but the flames from
the windows beneath converted tho es
capo Into a veritable grill and drove
thorn hack to the roof.
Having left Mrs. CarUon with Amund
sen, Koch crept back and in another
room in the rear found Oscar Walor
man, thirty-six, a boarder with tho
Carlsons, and dragged htm slong un
derneath the flames to Amunsden,
Waterman's nightshirt was afire and
he was badly burned. Amunsden and
the gangsters beat out the flamos and
carried htm out.
By that time the smoke and heat had
become so Intense that neither Kooli
or Amunsden could tyar It. One of
them got a pall of water and the police
men soused their faces. Then Koch
knelt down onoa more and crept back
again Into ths burning apartment. This

Heavy Vote All Over State.
COLUMRVB, O., May Il.-Advlce s from
every quartor of tho State reported fair
neather for Ohio's first preference pri
mary to-day, which concludes two weeks
or more of unprecedented campaigning
by President Taft and Col. Theodore
Roosevelt. Forty-eight ilelexatcs will be
selected by tho Republicans to represent
Ohio in tha Chicago convention, and
both candidates were confident of win
ning the entire delegation.
Supporters of all Presidential candi
dates Taft, Roosevelt, La Follette, Har
mon and Wilson Republicans and Dem
ocrats, were greatly encouraged by the
dawn of a fair, warm day.
Reports received In ColunYbus this
aft erne on were that an unusually heavy
vote had jteen cast by both Republicans
and Democrats In cities and towns,
with a light vote In the country. The
clear, warm weather. It was agreed,
was beneficial to the Taft condldacy
because msny Republican farmers In
every county who are opposed to the
'resident on account of his reciprocity
position, remained at home to work In
tho fields. At the ramo time, It Is be-

Democratic farmers are be
lieved to favor llnmion. Politicians
here estimate that about 300,000 Rcpub-

tho Intercut is not so Intense, It Is be
