spectator were appalled by the shriek and
frroans of muny human- beings who were
Imprisoned In the mass of tiuiner an 1 imi

A general alarm Immediately summoned
the entire fire department, ami an linrorn e
crowd, attracted by the explosion ami Mm
fire alarm, soon p eked the streets in Iho
v Id 111 1 y. At Aril the fire and smo e en
tirely prevented any attempt to rosoue the
. victims, and it was not until a Hood of
; water had been p turod upon the ruins Urn,'
' the work 0 mid b- pro J-u tod. AfiwdouJ
or dying ersons went tukou from the e l;e
of the debris, however, within an h ur
after the explosion. The force of the ex
plosion throw a bed, with a sl-ieplng woman
upon It, far Into the street, while one of tho
heavy doors of the bouse lunded about a
block away. .
Afc niue a. ul 111a names were so inr sun
dued that rescuer were eniiblel to g t at
some of the victims. Borne were pluro I be
Death heavy timbers upon which rented
nmsesof masonry, rendering the work of
rescue extremely hazardous. The dead bodv
of bwlght H. Buelt, of this cltv wns taken
out al)out ten o'u 00k. The bodies of Louli
H. Branson, move dealer, of this city and
nts wile and child were d covered at ulinut
K10 same time. H irryBtCtti. a co-nmerulul
traveler, of Philadtilphla, win) ro.nn d on tho
third floor, was laken from the ru'us eon
lderahly bralsod, but he remarked that be
was "all right'"
The bouse hud accommodations for about
lOOguost and was a favorite ow-unj iv
topping place for co mm rein: travelers. An
Intending guet who app.ioil fur a room Ini a
Saturday evening was Informed that limy

eighty persons were in the huue at the
time of the explosion nf which perhaps
twenty escaped uninjured. Thesu were
mostly employes, who 00 uplod an iinnex or
wing of the house exten ling to tho cimt,
and which has not yet fallen, ullhough in a
huky 0 inditlon.
Owing to the destruction of the re 'later
of the hotel, the names of nnriv of the
guests can not be ascertained. The catas
trophe l gen -rally sup;K)ed to have been
caused by an explosion of the boiler al
though some doubt ha been expressed on
this point ai the building had been popu
larly supposed to be unsafe It wu built on
"made" ground. The street department
and the railroads have furnished their
forces of laborers with Jacks, etc, and the
work of searching for bodlet 1 now going
forward to a systematic manner.

the above are doing well.
The police did good wor't In keeping order
an II the milltli were called out to re. love
fiein. The lower floors of Jmld & Knot's
wood warehouse were owver'ed Into a
tomnormy morgue, where the coroner,
medical examiner and as.lstant phytH
Irared for the vh-tims until the dead could
beldeutifl dand the Injured roinorod to hos
pitals. The city prov ided c.Kke s for the
unciain ed bodies. Moot of the bodlos bear
comparatively f"w marks or burnt. Death
seems In uioat ca-es to have be in due to
auffiHtntinnor contusion. Tna renter of
the hotel has not been found and night
olerk Perry la buried In tho ruins bute-tl-mutes
agree pretty clo ely that about 11 f y
perrons were In the hotel. The authorities
are overwhe med with te egmms of Inquiry
from peopie In all parts of the country who
fear their frlouds or relative! may have
been In the hotel.
When the explonlon ocouried the whole
fivewtory building collnpxod lut-i a confused
pile of masonry and timbers, except a part
of the rear, wboie a lien f rooiui r. m lined
at ndlng, but with the pa titiont torn away
so that ' he Inter or of the rooms were via
bid. Home of these room afterward crumb
led down with their occupants upon the de
bris below. There were ouly a few shrieks
and moitu herd, then all waa silent, The
flm which began to burst forth waa soon
extlnirukbed by the firemen, -Tha servants
occupied an annex In the rear, and were got
out by ladders from the windows, the stair
cum having bsen demolished by the fall of
tho main building. A few of the more ex
citable employes Jumped to the ground, but
were only sli ghtly Injured. Tho street clean .
lng department soon had ail their laborer
on the spot, helping clear away the ruins,
and the work of rescue went oa steadily all
day and evening. .
1 The cause 01 the disaster was ndoubted
ly the explosion of the boiler In toe base
ment It waa of slxteen-horso power, built
In ltftfi, and waa Impacted and approved laat
August by the Hartford Btaem Boiler In
