squad of firemen who were directing
their opcratlohs from a loadlrg plat
form S
Send Many Calla for Help
Tho fatalities nil occurred In one
place on tho loading platform When
the blaze first was discovered and
an alarm turned in the first of the
fire department forces to arrive on
tho scene sent in a 411 call for help
Following this came special call utter
special call until 60 streams of water
were trained on tho blaze
A stubborn fight occurred between
the flames and tho firemen Tho fire
spread to many parts of tho building
despite the efforts of tho men who
sought to check it
Sharp Blast Then Death
Tho fight bad continued for an hour
when the crash came Away up in
tho roof of the structure near a point
directly over the loading platform on
which stood Fire Chief Horan Bur
roughs his second assistant Lieuten
ant Fitzgerald and nearly a score of
others there was a sudden sharp
loud report like the Instantaneous
Ending of a highpressure boiler
Portions of the masonry of the
Imildlng fell away like a chllds house
toy IjvAtdlng blocks A larg < part
r this fell on xi canopy ov the
loading platform tearing the latter
awa and bearing it to tho platform
Itself which was crushed like an egg
shell with Ita human Jfrelct of fire
fighting men f
Falling Brick Injure Many
There were scores of firemen stand
ing < jn the outskirts of where the
bricks fell Many of those were in
jured some of them painfully They
were taken to St Bernards hospital
and to their homes In ambulances
and police pairpls which were rush
ed to tho scene b y the score when the
explosion came and It was known
that there would be a list pf dead and
Injured x
Fumes of ammonia filled thebull
mg with rapidity It was seek at
once that ammonia pipes forming a
part of tho refrigerating machinery
that keeps tho south end of the build
ing chilled for the storage of beef
carcasses had exploded
At once fear became widespread
that many firemen and their officers
were in the building at the time and
that the ammonia fumes would
strike them to the floor leaving them
easy prey for flames and smoke or
killing them outright
Firemen Work In Danger
The rescuers worked under the
greatest danger to their own lives and
ignoring burns and hazard of falling
walls Despite the fact that they were
award of the fatality and knew that
the bodies of the victims were burled
under the brick pile firemen worked
about the pile directing streams of
water Into the burning building Many
of them went about with tears stream
ing down their cheeks overcome with
grief over the fate of the chief and
his subordinates
subordinatesBegin
Begin Rescue Immediately
Almost as soon as the wall fell i
those of the fighters who had escaped i
S fter ocqAa rah4
at the ruins to bring to set those
whmlght still be alive Amid the
blaring Umbers the redhot bricks and
the lzzllng steel the 1r men worked
unmindful of the terrible burns they
were suffering
The work of rescue was extremely
difficult The terrific heat of the fire
combined with that of the fallen ma
terlal made It almost impossible for
the rescuers to work without being
overcome Even around the edges
the Injured could hardly be found
because the dust and grime with which
they were covered made them almost
Indistinguishable from the ruins
Walls Continue to Fall
The peril of the brave fire fighters
did not cease after the explosion and
tho falling of the wall on the score of
men on loadingplatform
Other and smaller secUo 1aof the
wall continued to fall and warning
calls from commanding officers to
men who were imperiled from time to
time by theso were heard continually
Finally an order was issued for no
man to venture near enough to the
building to be caught under any col
lapsing masonry
News of the fire and explosion
spread rapidly through the tock yards
district and friends and relatives of
the firemen gathered around the build
ing imploring the Pro fighters for
news of their friends Policemen from
a number of neighboring stations were
taxed to keep them from gunning Into
the burning building

its loss was practically a total one

New V rkRG Dun Cos Week
ly Review of Trade said
In sharp contrast with the between
seasons dullness in jobbing trade is the
brisk holiday retail distribution which
in most of the cities Is reported to bo
equal or in excess of last year
Building operations in a number of
cities show declines as compared with
last year though the aggregate of now
projects is still large Diminished ac
tivity in iron and steel is to be ex
peeled as the year draws to a close
yet It is evident that dultnqss Is more
pronounced than is customary at this
season
Iron and Steel
Tho holiday period will naturally
cause a temporary cessatloh of opera
tlons at manufacturing plants and as
current buying is of small proportions
mills and furnaces are expected to still
further restrict their output Discus

is receiving most attention and con
sumers are believed tobe confident
the lower quotaU nBwlll shortly be
named with the result that orders are
being withheld Pipe iron has beer
quite freely taken and Inquiries for a
substantial tonago are still reported
Xl eastern territory but with this ex
ception extreme quietness prevails in
tho pig Iron division Construction
of new battleships will require con
siderable finished material and it is
estimated that 300000 tons of mate
rial will be needed for bridges and
buildings although on railroad work
further marked concessions are re
ported but contracts are coming for
