A 11U1EL BURNED.
A FATAL FIRE IN THE HEART OF NEW
Several People I'%r1si in the Flamtem and
Many Others InInred--Leaves ls Wile
to Her Fate-Many Heartrending
NEW YORK, Feb. 7.-A disaster, ap
palling in horror, bringing to mind the
terrible occurences in Park Pjace, still
fresh in the public mind, occurred in
this city early this morning. The Il.
tel Royal, that well-known landinark
which has stood for more than a quar
ter of a century at the southeast cor
ner of 6th avenue and 40th streets, wis
burnedto the ground and a large number
of people burned, suffocated or crushed
in the ruins. At the time of the disaster
there were nearly one hundred and il
ty guests in the hotel. The hotel em
ployees all told numbered fifty-five. Of
this number of people fifteen thus far
have been found (lead, six are in the
hospital and sixty-three have been re
ported alive. One hundred are still
missiDg. The number of dead will
probably not exceed, at a late estimate,
Thescenes were heartrending andap
paled even firemen and policemen,
who are used to terrible events. Soon
after the fire broke out anibul-mces ar
rived from various hospitals. Many
physicians, who reside in the neighbor
hood, were quickiy on the scene and
did all they could to relieve the injured.
.Nearly every one of the one ludred
and twenty-four rooms, which the hote)
has on the live floors, were occupied last
night, by guests, nan) of Lhevi trai
sient. In fact all the rooms, save four,
had bten [taken at 1 o'cIoca this niorn
ing wheii Richard Atears, the proprie
tor, went to bed.
When the flames burst forth from
some unknown cause, near I he elev,itor
shaft, the entire building wias inst ant
ly enveloped in flames. At 3:05 o'clock
Mts. Isabella Aleares, wife of the pro
prietor of the hotel, awakened her hus
band, telling him the house wis on fire.
She heard the er -ckling of 1aium"
through the crevices of their door. Ar
Meares had only retired at 1 o'clock and
was aroused with difliculty. Ilie sprang
out of bed and ran into the hallway
Volumes of smoke filled the halls a(
the flames were making their way rap
idly tip the elevator shatt. Their anart
ments were on the third floor and forty
feet from the stairway.
O-)ne glance at the situation wa,
enough to tell him the story. lie rav
back to his wife's room and shouted:
"Now you follow me," snatched up i
coat and again ran into the hall,
way. Ile fought h!s way straight tc
the staircaso, supposing that his wift
was close behind him. The passag(
%as choked with dense smoke whicli
almost strangled him. Then throwing
lils ov-rcoat over his head to prevein
suffocation, he bent his head low and
groped his way to the bannister, or
which he placed his left hand. Th
flames were shooting up from below
His hand which was on the railing waf
burnod and his hair was singed.
His situation was perilous. To ru
down stairs for two flights meant deatl
and so he swung himself over hand rail
dropped twenty feet to the groun
floor. lie landed on his feet without .
broken bone and made his way to thr
street. Mr. Meares was among the firs
to leave the burning building, and whe1
hc made his exit he (lid it before the ai
rival of the first engine.
Buit even in those few minutes th
flames had gotten their grip on thm
fated structure, and the fire was shoot
ing from all the windows of the nmpie
floors. When M1eares reached safety ii
the street then he realized that his will
was not with him. At that moment,i
hook and ladder truck arrived. .ly ii
of ladders Mirs. Meares andl another ladi'
wore saved with slight injuries.
Before the company arrived, one man:
whose name istnot known, sprang fron
a three-tory wiradow and was (lashed ti
aeathu on the groumnd below. P'eopl
turned their faces away horrified at lhb
sight. This was on the f6th aventut
side of the building. A moment latei
another man leaped from a window oi
the 4th street side and was instantly
killed. Shortly aft.1erward t,wo wonerm
jumped from the windows on the* 6tli
avenue side and were dead when lick.
ed tip. T1hemr dead bodies we're taker>
to the 30th street station house, andl af.
te rwards, being uin idlentitfled, were reo
mfove(d to the morgue. People dropped
from the wvindlows, or slidl (down thei
ropes, with which every room in the
hotel was provided, andf others wvith
their wits about, them tised t he ueapau'
to good ad vantage.
A considerable nuimber of those who
escaped by these meanis from the upp)er
stories were badly scorched by the
flam(-s bursting from the lower win
(lows. One young lady lost a fine head
of hair in this way, but escaped serious
harm. One young umani, who is some
thinig of an athelet, let himself down
fronm window to window, and suffered
nothing worse than a few hurnis. When
the walls fell people were seen at sev -
eral windiows on the top[ Iloor' crying
for help, but they fell back and w~ere
soon buried in t,he ruins.
Many incidents ot narrow escapes are
recordied. One man, Mr. Klein, of hlaz
loton, l'a., an 01(1 customer of t he ho l,
was arotisedl in time to get out, upon a
lIne escape, when the smoke soon coin
pelled him to start dlownwaurd. Thel
flames cut off his descent. Smoke amd
flames p revented his going lip the la(d
dler. Ills p)osition was critical. Ilap
pily a fireman discovered him as he was
almost suffocated, andl quicklv, thotigh
not without difliculty and daniger help
ed him to a place safety.
WV. Hi. Sykes, of the 'Chelset A part
ment Ilouse, or this city, a prominent
and wealthy man, stopping at t he lioy
idl, was roused by the flames, andl esaiy
ed to escape fromt his room on the third
floor to the Bryant Park Ilotel adjoin.
ing. The distance between the win
dows was about ten feet. 'Stepping out
on the Coping and closely hugging the
buildin ghe sought to edge his way
The coping suddenly narrowed. IIt
could go no further. Fire and smoki
belched from the window lie had jusi
left and he could Dot return. Clad only
in his night dress he became benumb
ed. His strength gave out, Ilis heat
reeled, lie tottered, and just as hi
was falling thirty-flve feet to the stree1
below a stalwart, fireman caught hin
and he was saved.___

Why sutler with sickness or disease
1:heu you can be so easily and quickly
cured without medicine by the use of
the Electropoise. This is what Mrs.
Sallie Chapin has to say about. it:
IIrs. Sile F. Chapin, President of
the Women's Christian Temperance
Union of South Carolina, Charleston,
S C., writing under date of January
20, 1890 says: I was truly glad to learn
that in ollice had been opened in our
city for tihe sale of an instrument (the
Eleetrop oe) about which I became so
enth htisi.--tic a few mont,hs ago that I
rashIv w ent into print in an article de
scribing 0ts n%onderful curative pro- si;
per ies. I did not imagine the trouble '
I was bringing upon myself, for not a
wek has passed since that I have been
called upon to give further testimony
and tell more about it. I have friends
who, after suffering for . ears the most
excruciating pain, which the most
skillful physicians North and South uT
had failedl to relieve, have been cured C'
by t lhe use of the Electropoise. It is a
panacea for inervousness, brain fatigue,
and general debility. It only needs a
trial to convince the most skeptical,
and when 1 hear the testimony of the

and who have been benefited, If feel It
a duty I owe suffering humanmty to
say, try the Electropoise.
