Mate-Szalka, Hungary, March 28.
-The villarge of Ockoerito and the
adjacent distriets have been thrown
into mournirg by a terrible disaster,
whic:h occurred at the former place
last night. an. which resulted in the
death of between three hundred a.nd
four hundred persons, and the se
rious injury of one hund red others.
A public ball was announced. to be
held at the hotel of the village,
where the coach house had been fit
ted up as a ball room. It was a
great barn-like structure, decorated
with tinder Jry Ju-ne branches left

The One Exit Barred.
The festivity attracted pleasure-.
seekers from the whole surrounding
-country, a.:d the building was so
packed just before the ball .com
m2nced tha' the single door which
affordedi entrance and exit was nail
ed up to prevent the admittance of
scores who clamored outside.
While the dancing was in full
swing a pine bra.nch caught fire and
fell to the floor. It blazed furiously
and almost instantly the dresses of
several of the .omen burst -into
flames, which spread with astonish
A panic ensued, the revellers los
ing their heads completely. Many of,
them with flames shooting out from
their garme,ts, rushed towards the
barred exit, wheer a surging mass
was jammed together. Women and
men fell and were trampled under
foot. Those in front vainly en
iea-verod to tear open the door, but
were rushed helplessly by the pres
sure of the crowd behind them. The
roaring and crackling of the flames
mingled with the despairing shrieks
of the .doomed throng.
Smoking Piles of Human Debris.
Soon the roof :rashed in, the
blazing wreckage falling upon, the
helpless victims so that many of
them who hitherto had escaped the
flames were struck down by beams
or buried under the debris. The
scene was horrifying.
When the door a.nd finally broken a

of those collapsed befbre they got 1

eharred corpses and . heartrending
sc.reamns and groans still were audi- (
ble from the smoking piles. A de
tachment of troo.ps were' oraered to t
the scene to clear the wreekage and

JUSTICE D. J. BREWER DEAD.
Expired Suddenly Monday Night
from Apoplexy.-End Came Be
fore Physicians Could Arrive.
Wa hingon March 28.-David
Josiah Brewer, Associate Justice of
the Supreme Court of the United
States, died tonight at 10:30 o'clock
as the result of a stroke of apoplexy.
His death followed within a minute
or two, before he could be carried to
his bed. Mrs. Brewer was with him
when the end came. Justice Brewer
was 73 years old.
The end came altogether unex
pectedly. Although he had not
been feeling well for the past few
days, the aged. jurist was up and out
tWday, apparently in thei -best of
health and spirits. He was in equal
ly good spirits at dinner and spent
the evening in reading.
Shortly after ten o'clock he re
tired to his room, and; within a few
minutes Mrs. Brewer heard a heavy
fall, and went to investigate^ the
mause. She found her husband prone
upon the floor of the bath room. He
id not regain consciousness, and
died before a physician, hastily
ummoned, could reach the house.
The two daughters of the agd ju
rist, Mrs. James F. Karrich and
rs. H. B. Jetmore, were summoned
it once, but reached the residence
