TWO HUNDRED PERISH
IN AWFDL CONFLAGRATION.
Ten Millions In Property Goes Up In Smoke
at Hoboken Saturday Evening.
.Men Were Penned In the Blazing Hulks of Ships and Were
Doomed to a Slow and Horrible Death, Being Literally
Roasted Alive Story ot the Disaster
New York, July 2. Almost ten mil
lion dollars' worth of property was de
stroyed, many lives lost, many per
sons were Injured, and ut least fifteen
hundred lives were Imperiled by a Are
that started among cotton bales stored
on pier No. 3 of the North German
Lloyd Steamship company, In Hoboken,
N. J at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon.
In less than 15 minutes the names
covered an area a quarter of a mile
long, extending outward from the
actual shore line to the bulkheads,
from six hundred to one thousand feet
Away, and had caught four great ocean
liners and a dozen or more smaller
harbor craft In Its grasp.
The steamship Main was burned Ut
her dock with a great number of men
aboard. The Saale, now beached on
the Jersey flats, went down the river
all afire with flrcboats and a fleet of
tugs picking oil of her such men as they
could and picking up such as flung
themselves overboard to escape the
flames. In her hold are many corpses.
The Bremen, with seventeen living
men aboard, penned on one side by her
hold, Are aft and forward and fire above
them and on the other side, was beach
ed oft Weehawken at night. Fifty tugs
hung around her striving to put out
the fire and cool her off with hundreds
of tons of water. The living men talked
with the big boatmen through the
ports. They said the men on the other
-side of the hold must be dead. Late at
night the rescuers had good hopes of
getting the living men oft alive.
The fire destroyed all the North Ger
man Lloyd piers, some dozen lighters
-and canal boats, a great quantity of
cotton for It was a cotton fire at the
start and the storage warehouse of
Campbell & Company to the north of
the pier, a great building full of mer
chandise. The surface of the water was covered
with floating and blazing masses of
freight, thrown in haste from the
doomed vessels all unnoticed In the
mad race to rescue more precious hu
man lite threatening or being sacrificed
In the great ships. And through the pall
of smoke a great crimson sun, enlarg
ed to thrice Its size by the haze, glared
like an enormous eye as it slowly sunk
In the west. '
Such was the tremendous spectacle
presented on tho surface of the Hudson
river, as If it had been some holiday
pageant. It was made tragic by tho
realization that somewhere in that
smoke, somewhere beneath the turbid
waters, scores of lives had been lost or
were then In their last desperate strug
gle against death.
Tho spectacle was witnessed by thou
sands and thousands from both shores,
and by other thousands, who crowded
upon every ferry boat, every excursion
boat, upon every variety of river craft
that could be secured for tho purpose.
The crowd upon the banks of the river
was almost as great oj that which
formed to witness the triumphant re
turn of Admiral Dewey.
The fearful havoc of life and property
caused by the flro cannot be approxi
mated with any degree of certainty.
Conservative people, who have had ex
perience along the docks, are of the
opinion that not over two hundred lives
It is estimated that from three to
four hundred persons were injured and
taken to the different hospitals In this
city, Jersey City and Hoboken. Many
of them were found to be not seriously
hurt and were discharged today. Many
others are believed to be seriously In
jured and they cannot recover.
While the flre was still burning the
work of relief was begun. Men came
to the office of tho North German Lloyd
line almost naked and with their cloth
ing ruined by the salt water. Men
who had been treated by doctors, but
who had not been BUfllclently injured
to be taken to the hospitals, also
gathered at the office. Every man was
.given money and clothing and taken
to a temporary lodging house by agents
of the company. The sailors from the
ships lost absolutely everything they
Women besieged tho officers for in
formation In regard to relatives. There
were about seventy missing reported
at tho North 'German Lloyd office
alone. Fully 80 per cent of the sailors
are Germans, who have no home and
no relatives In this country. Most of
them lived In Germany.
Nineteen men, machinists and fire
men, were taken off the steamship
Bremen after being hfeld very close
"bound, with death staring them In the
face for nearly twelve hours. They
were brought ashore on tugs and taken
care of In hotels near to the company's
charred property. No loss of life was
reported from the Bremen, with the ex
ception of the probability of deaths oc
curring from the capsizing of the boat,
already mentioned. As seventy-four
persons were rescued from the river by
six boats' crews from the steamer
Phoenicia, of the Hamburg-American
line, It Is Just possible that there was
not a soul lost from the Bremen.
Three dead bodies were picked up
near the Hamburg-American line dock
In Hoboken. One ot them was Identi
fied as that of Lena S, Cordts, a stew
ardess of the steamer Saale., The other
two were bodies of mates, one of , whom
was Identified through a, rent receipt
found In his pocket' as Henry Ko'rdell,
of Hoboken. The other body lies as yet
unidentified at the morgue, but from
the appearanoe of the clothing it Is
presumed that the dead man was an
oiler or, a coal passer on ,some of the
It'll feared that lome.of the Chrjstlan
( Endeavorers who were to have sailed
'from Boston, Thursday, for Southamp
ton on tho Saale may have lost their
lives. It was said that some of these
people had come to this city to inspect
the, ship, which had been chartered to
take 600 ot them to England, and that
they were on board of her when the
flames broke out on the pier. The flre
boat Robert A. VanWyck, which ar
rived on the scene first 'among the flro
fighters, presented a picture ot hor
ror and ghastllness as Bhe lay at her
dock, In tho East river today. The
decks were covered with cotton, satur
ated with the blood of the victims res
cued by the brave men aboard. The
firemen were at work cleaning the boat,
and picking up stained remnants of
clothing which were torn from the
burning bodies as they wero pulled
aboard the flro boat from the pit of
flre. Pieces of human skin clung to the
scarlet rags, and the dreadful experi
ence of tho firemen was brought again
to eyes and memories which Bought to
forget the horrible spectacle.
HEARTLESS TUG CAPTAIN.
New York, July 2. Forty of those
who perished on the steamship Saale
went to their deaths despite the gallant
effort made to rescue them because the
captain of a. tugboat valued more highly
than a human life a horso probably
worth $10. Ot all the heartless acts tha
crews of tugboats) were guilty of on Sat
urday afternoon none can equal the con
duet of this man, whose name and that
of tho boat ho commanded probably will
never bo known to the public. Bent on
lending what aid they could, and with
flames roaring about them, and the
shrieks of those Imprisoned in the Saale
ringing in their ears, the fearless band
of rescuers led by Chief Engineer H.
Bahrende, of the Hamburg-American
liner Kaiser Frledrlch, had no time to
When the alarm ot flre was first
sounded tho officers of tho Kaiser
Frledrlch and many of the crew rushed
down from the steamship and out on the
end of the pier. They were standing
there, watching the flames eating their
way along tho North German Lloyd
piers, when the Saale, burning fiercely,
was pulled out Into the stream for the
dock aboucc. ,
As she swung by the Hamburg-American
.pier.Mr.. Bahrends saw a man with
his head oUt of one of tho Saalo's lower
port holes, trying to cool his face with a
handkerchief ho had dipped Into the
water. Thinking that all others on the
Bteamshlp had gotten oft safely except
this man, Mr. Bahrends thinks was the
chief steward of tho ship from the cap
engineer called for volunteers to man

When the band of volunteer life sav
ers got out to tho Saale. Mr. Bahrends
leaped aboard one of the fleet of tugs
which had surrounded tho burning
steamship and, seizing a hose, played It
on tho man leaning out of the porthole,

out of tho porthole.
As sotn as Mr. Bahrends had learned
of the plight of the forty stewards, and
of the way by which they could bo
reached, ho climbed upon tho Saale's

when suddenly the hoso was torn from
the chief engineer's hands. Tho flames
leaped with greater fierceness and Mr.
Bahrends was driven back to tho side
of the ship.
"You're spoiling all our hose," shouted
the captain of the tug.
Mr. Bahrends pleaded with the captain
to let him have the hose, but the man
was obdurate. Flames were now lick
ing tho feet of the chief engineer, and
he asked the tug captain to raise a lad
der so he could reach the tugboat's deck,
fifteen feet below.
"Jump for it," replied the captain at
nrst, and It was only after repeated re
quests that a bidder was furnished.
Mr. Bahrends then hurried over to his
own boat and rowed over to the flre
boat New Yorker, which was close by
pouring streams of water on the doomed
ship. From the deck of the Mew Yorker

The war department Is In dally re

in tho event of war between the United
States and China. To all ot these there
can be but ono reply.
By the act of March 2, 1899, the presl
dent was authorized to raiso a force
of not more than 35,000 volunteers, which
volunteer force shall continue In ser
vice only during the necessity therefor,
and noc later than June 30, 1901," and

It therefore restsi With congress, and
not with the president, to Increase the

at these prompt and spontaneous evi

way to Kansas City. When the train
pulled Into tho Union station, he alight

doing so another train came In from

Croker, who also got out to stretch his
legs. As tho Tammany chief slowly
sauntered toward the east end of tho

until Mr. Croker had climbed Into his

among those ot other party affiliations.
The resignation was entirely unex

to be somewhat puzzled over It. None
of them, however, will express an opin
ion concerning what causes led up to
the act. Cox frankly states In his
letter of resignation that his withdraw
al Is In the Interest of harmony.
So great was their surprise that the
prominent members of the party have
