The bulldlng whlch collapsed was 28x88 feet.
The walls <-f the flrst two storle.a had been
er.cted, three tlers of beams had been laid and
the workmen were engaged ln bulldlng the walls
for the thlrd story. Th.- call of the brlcklayers
for brlcks and the answerlng calls of the labor

wlthout the slightest war)iing. the entlre rear of

reoeunded through the nelghborhood, an.l a
u'r.-at cloud of dust arose from the ruins.
To those ln the nelghborhood 'he shock felt
like a miniaiure earthquake, and great exolte

a BCore or more of men w.-re burtod in the

.'RIE8 OF THE BrBIED MEN.
By the tlme Chlef Duane reached the place the
dust had partlally cleared away, and the extent
of the disaster could be plalnly aeen. The bulld?
lng, from the rear wall to wlthin thirty feet of
the front walls, was down, wlth the exceptlon of
a part of the aouth wall. and that was toppllng
and appeared to be about to fall. The crles of
the buried men were heartrending. Pollceman
Hirkey and Kireman Kanehan were the tirst to
enter the rulns, and they found James Shannon
lylng under a beam. They al once removed him
to the street. They WON followed by other police
men and flremen, and the work of rescue began.
Chlef Duane had sent out a double ambulance
call, and two atnbulano-s arrlved from the Pres
byterlon an.l Plow%r hcopltala One after an
Otber the burl.-d men were reached and carried
out. untll elght men ln all had been rescued an.l

These men were conveyed to the Presbyterlan
Hoapltal and the work went ..n wlth greater
energy as ,,n,- poor fellow was dlattnctly seen far

long b.-fore the man was reacbed and taken out.
Il proved lo l,e ('ran.-. His he;id was horribly
? Tushed. He had evldently been kllled outright.
The body was plocod upon a str.-t.-her and re?
moved to the Khsi Sixiy-.-lgbth-st. statlon In the
patrol wagon. Then the pollce began to look up
the survlvors nnd they soon dlsc.vered that all
the men who had been at work on tbe bulldlng
w.-re occounted for. Under the- dlrectlon of
Chief Duane the (Iremen then procced*d to pull
down the dangerous part >>f the south wall.
CROWDS GATHBR IN THK STRKKTH.
Whlle th?- work of rescue was in progress an

Albany, Sept. 2tl.~-John Boyd Thacher ylelded
to-day to the demand of Willlam J. Rryan. John
C. Hheehan and other HupporterB of the National
platform of the Democratlc party, and decllned
1 the Popocratlc nomination for Oovernor. Mr.
Thacher kept his Intentlons a profound secret
from the general publlc until early this mornlng,
but hla Intlmate. frlenda noxv say that for thr?*e
or four days he has had BO Intentlon of acceptlng
the nomination. Moreover, they aay that Sena?

No one can forget that for txvo months Senator
Hlll hc: been schemlng to nominate some one for
Oovernor xvho could recelve the unlted aupport of
the Kold Democrata and of the silver I'oniocrats.
That xvas part of his design to l.rlng about the
electlon of a larce number of Assemhlymen and
his own re-elec'lon as a member of the I'nlted
BtBtaa SenAte. He manag. d to nominate Thach?
er, who had made a gold-standard gpeech at the
Democratlc State Convention. But then the
Oold DemocratH refused to act th.-lr asslgned
part in the Hill drama. They not only decllned
to Indorae Thacher. but nomlnated a candldate
for Oovernor, Danlel O. Oriffln, agalnst hlm. Mr.
HUl's great scheme may be sald to have been
starnped with the word "Fallure" at the State
'T.nventlon of the Sound Money lVmo.ratB on
Thursday nlght. Then It was, prol ably. that
both Thacher and Hill came to their dotermlna
tton to wlthdraxv the former as the Democratlc
candldate for Oovernor.

Thomas F. Orady, glamlng at the document.
He then rushed off to a long-dlstance telephone
and Informed John C. Sh<*ehan of what had
occurred. It was not untll two hours after
xvard, hoxvever. that Thacher read the Bpeech
xxhich he so klndly furnlshed the members of
the commlttee lli advance. Polltlclans suspect
that he feared that Senator Orady would aub?
ject him to some sort of dreadful questioning
about his real attltude toward the Bryan and
Sewall canvass if he dld not inform that gentle?
man at once that he had withdrawn as a can?

Nor did the Notlflcation Commlttee have the
satlsfactlon of listenlng to a speech from Wllbur
V. Porter, of Watertown, the candldate for Lleu

to Albany. but a search about tln- h'.tels did not
dlacloae his preeence Mr. Malloy xvent to a long
dlstance telephone. and learned from a frlend of
Judge Porter in Watertown that he did not intend
to come to Albany to-day.
Then came a r exvspaper dlspatch from Water?
town saylnK that it xva< hlnted there that Judge
Porter mlght declin" the nomination for Lleu

could be obtalned from Judge Porter was that he
would make known hla decislon ahout the offlce
of Lleutenant-Oovernor ln a letter addreased to
the Democratlc State Commlttee. xvhlch is to
meet in New-York next Monday. Judge Porter
opposed his own nomination for Lieutenant-Oov

Democrats who labored hard to nominate
Thach.-r for Oovernor aaid late this evenlng that
lt xvas already arranged that Judge Porter should
be nrminated for Oovernor as a aubaUtUte ?r
Thacher and .that some Brooklyn Demo.-rat

Troy, N. Y.. Sept. 20.?Oeorge H. Morrlson.
Treasurer of Renaaelaer County, was arrested
late thls afternoon, on complaint of Chatnber
laln Morey of the clty of Troy. The charge ia
mlsapproprlating $20,000 due to the clty from ex?
clae collectlons. Mr. Morrlson thls afternoon
tianpferred to his bondsmen real eatate and se
curltlea of the par value of fM&OOL. and estl
mated to be worth not lOM thnn 4(1 cents on the
dollar. His accounts show that there ls due to
the county nearly .^OO.IKK). 9180,000 ,,f whlch ln
ln the new Court House fund. Mr. Morrlson ha.4
been County Treasurer for two years. The
Board of Supervlsors wlll meet on Monday to
take actlon. There are ten bondsmen. The
amount of the bond Is $1<Hl.OOO.
Rumors have been current for several days
relatlve to the flnanelal soundmss of the County
Treasurer. The rumors flrst gain.-d strength
when the Natlonal Bank of Troy, of whlch Mr.
Morrlson was formerly cashler. suspended pay
m.-nt last Saturday. Mr. Morrlson then aaid
that he had on deposlt .*40.0<>0 of the county
money in that bank. Then came the demand by
the city offlcials upon Mr. Morrlson for 996,000
due to the city on payments for Heenses under
the Ralnes law. There had been a controversy
afi to whether or not the County Treasurer was
compelled to pay over tho amount Imme.llateiy.
The Treasurer promlsed the City Chamberlaln
and Controller that the amount would be paid
in a few days. Of the sum due. JlO.OiMi was paid
The bondsmen of Mr. Morrlson as County
Treasurer, becoming alarmed, held a meetlng
yesterday afternoon at the offlce of thelr counael,
Van Santvoord & Welltngton. It was declded
to endoavor to secure a conference wlth Mr. Mor?
rlson, who was not preaent, or his legal repfesen
tative, and to see If money could not be ralsed
to pay the 926,000 still due. Another meetlng of
the bondsmen was called for 9:80 o'clock this
mornlng At that meetlng It was the general
expresslon that Mr. Morrison's affalrs were ln
such shape that It would be hopeless to endeavor
to secure enough money to land hlm on solld
ground' again. The bondsmen gave up tha
scarch for flnanelal asslstance for Mr. Morrlson,
nnd it was ngreed that nothlng remalned but to
learn. so far as poaslble, the truth about his
flnanelal obllgatlons and what resources he had
wlth whlch to meet the llabllltlea.
The amount of the bond Is $100,000 and each
BUKty qualifles for 920,000. The sureties are,
however, "Jolntly and severally" resronslble. It
ls said that this makes each signer of the bon-l
lieble for any deflelency In meetlng the full
amount of the bond. which protects the coun
tv's Intcrests to the --xtent of 9100,000.
The Flnance Commlttee of the Rensselaer
Board of Supervlsors was hastlly summoned last
nlght. when the meetlng of the bondsmen became
known. to come together at the County Treas
urer's offlce this mornlng. Chalrman Derrick
was iequested to eail a meetlng of the Board of
Supervlsors. to he held Monday mornlng at
10 o'clock. The Einance Commlttee wlll then re?
port the sltuation
A member of the commlttee said after the
meetlng that there ahould be depoalted In the
banks of the clty about 9880, XX). but that it has
been ascertalned that aslde from the $.0,000
tied np In the Natlonal Bank of Troy there was
only $118 to be found.
One of the bondamen said thls afternoon "The
face value of the property tramif->rred is $.100.
000. I should thlnk that tha property. constdered
ai a whole, Is not worth leaa than 40
cents on the dollar, or about 9124.000.
