NEW YORK, Dec. 20.— The Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western railroad, which
a few months ago suffered the loss of
its Hoboken terminal buildings by fire,
sustained a still heavier loss today
when the new ferry terminals of steel
frame and supposedly fireproof con
struction at the foot of West Twenty
third street, Manhattan, were burned to
The loss is estimated at more than
half a million dollars. A careful search
up to a late hour tonight failed to show
any lives lost.
Several employes of the railroads
were severely burned and five men
were reported missing after the fire was
The new ferry houses of the Del
aware, Lackawana & Western and of
the Jersey Central railroads were al
most total losses.
Buildings Just Completed
They were the newest ferry ter
minals In the city, the Lackawanna
building still undergoing its finishing
touches, and the Jersey Central having
been completed only two months ago.
The terminals of the Krle railroad and
the Pennsylvania were In such danger
for a time that the lire department con
centrated almost its entire efforts or
saving them. One small freight shed
belonging to the Erie and part of its
docks were damaged. •; •
The fire started In the paint shop in
the Lackawanna building, presumably
from a defective electric wire. A ferry
boat was just discharging 800 passen
gers Into the streets when smoke,
Ilames and explosions burst from the
paint shop nearby. So rapidly did the
flames spread that when the fire depart
ment had got to work the intense heat
was already melting the copper sheath
ing on the walls of the building.
Saves Tickets and Cash
A 240-foot tower of the Lackawanna
building, burning from top to bottom,
fell into the Hudson river, carrying a
three-ton clock down with it. The roof
of this building fell, leaving little ex
