[Entered at the I'osloffice ot Alexandria, Virginia, as
Grcal Fire in Slew Fork.
Tho signal of the "Three Sixes," which is
used only when a serious conllagration is
feared, was sent out at. 2:15 this morning in
New York, and a call ior ambulances made.
All the engines except one in each district
of the city and acibnlam-es from all the hos?
pitals were immediately brought into requi?
sition and taken-to the Belt Line stables on
Tenth avenue, between Fifty-third and Fif?
ty fourth streets, which wero then in flames.
The building was entirely destroyed with
l,G00 horses and nearly all the car.-? in the
building. Two blocks of buildings were also
in llames. The flames wero lirst seeu by
otto of the night hands, who gave the alarm.
The lire spread rapidly and soon complete?
ly enveloped the building in its folds. The
structure was a live-story one, and covered
a sijiiare block, reaching buck to Eleventh
avenu*. The upper stories were occupied
by the repair shops and combustible mate?
rial, which blazed as soon as touched by the
tiro. The officer were situated in tho south
east corner, and were in llames so quickly
that there was no ehaueo to save tho books
of the company. In tho stables wero over
sixteen hundred horses and several hundred
cats, and only ten horses and two cars wero
saved, the rest being all burned up. At
in. the walls fell in with a terrible crash
sending millions of sparks and blazing
pieces of wood high in the air. The heat
from the flaming building was so great that
several firemen and two policemen were
prostrated. At 1:45 a. m. the flames, aided
by the strong, high wind which was pre
vailing, had leaped across the wide avenue
and communicated to the whole block on
the east side, between Fifty-third and Fifty
fourth streets. The block was composed of
six-story tenement houses and a coal yard,
and the terror-stricken tenants poured out
of (he building like a swarm of bees, prat?
ing, lighting and cursing by turns. The
scene of terror was indescribable, and the
buildings burned rapidly, though the fronts
facing the avenue were of brown stone. By
2:30 they weic completely gutted. The
llames spread to the entire square block
over to Ninth avenue, and at 2:30 a. m. the
next block below had caught on lire and
was blazing fiercely. The streets in tho vi
cinity for blocks away were filled with
frightened, crying, and woe stricken tenants
fleeing from tho ravages of the flames. It is
estimated that the entire loss will be over
? 1,000,000. The tenement houses were
thickly peopled. Every lioor had from
four to fivo families,-and ail were poor peo
pie, who will lose all their property. So far
as know there has not been any loss of life.
The lire was gotten under control after
'3'tie Paris Fire.
As stated yesterday the bodies of the ballet
dancers who lost their lives by the burning
of the Opera Comique in Paris Wed?
nesday nicht are lying in heaps in the
ruins of the theatre. The firemen still
assert that many bodies are lying ia
the upper galleries. The number of per?
sons killed greatly exceeds tho previous es?
timate. An excited crowd surround the
ruins, which uro guarded by a military cor?
don-. Mauy distressing scenes are witnessed.
Twenty bodies in a terribly mutilated con?
dition have been recovered from the ruins.
The remains are nriucipally those of ballet
girls, choristers, and machinists. Fiveol*|
the bodies are those of elderly ladies and
one of them is that of a child. Twenty
more bodies were recovered yesterday after?
noon from the ruins and search for the vic?
tims of the couilagratiou continues. Late
yesterday afteruoou tho bodies of eighteen
ladies, nil in full dress, wero found lying
together at the bottom of the staircase lead?
ing from tho second story. These ladies
all bad escorts to the theatre, but no
remains of men were found anywhere near
where the women were burned to death.
The walls of the theatre began falling yes?
terday evening, and the search for bodies
had to bo abandoned for the day. Tho li?
brary attached to the theatre was entirely
destroyed, with all its contents, including
many" valuable scores, and six thousand
costumes were burned in the wardrobe.
The remains of three meu and two women
were found in tho stage box, where the vic?
tim:- had taken refuge from the flames. It
i- ascertained that many bodies lie buried
.in the debris in the upper galleries, whence
escape was exceedingly difficult. The gov?
ern: u-n: proposes to close several of the
Paris theatres because of their deficiency in
exit.-. The wo:lc of searching for the bod?
ies was resumed last night, and a number
more wero exhumed, and the official state
men; says that fifty bodies have already
been recovered. M. Keveillou, a deputy,
speaking in the Chamber of Deputies yes?
terday afternoon, estimated that at least 20?
persons lost their lives in the fire. A credit
of 200,000 francs has been voted for the suf?
ferers by the Chamber of Deputies. Yes?
terday 156 missing persons were inquired
for by relatives. They are supposed to have
perished in tho llames. The bottom of the
theatre is flooded with water to the depth
of live feet. Sixty bodies have been found
floating in the water by the firemen.

Horrible Death of a Bow?In New i
York on Tuesday, -everoi hoys went in !
swimming from one of the wharves on the
East river front, when one of their compan- !
ions who was on the watch said that a po- \
liceman was coming. The boys scattered
and hid in various places. A ssven-year-old |
boy named Thomas Gray, nut on his under?
shirt, grabbed his ciotbe^ and took refuge
in un ice carl. He threw hi? clothes into
; the wagon, climbed over the partilion, open
t ed the driver's scat, which the cover of a
I box in which tools are kept and jumped in?
to the box. To be secure from detection he
let the cover of the box fall. The cover
was a tight tit and when it came down, the
staple and husp joined together and locked
it so that it could not bo opened from the
inside. After awhile the other boys began
to wonder what bad become of Gray. They
finally found Gray'* clothes in the ice cart,
and after notmt hf.r.-l tugging one of them
got up the drivei ? neat. Inside was the
dead body of their compftnion, which was
black in the face From the way the things
were stirred up in he box ami the slight j
abrasions of the boy's skin it id thought that
he struggled hard to go* the box open.
