Saturday's GLOBE increase every week,
and there seems to be no end to the de

Chicago, Nov. State's Attorney
Grinnell said to-day: "1 expect the !
federal court will sustain the decision
of the lower court. There were no new \
points brought out by the other side in
the briefs, and the oral arguments were
but reiterations of well worn details
already passed upon by the court below.
I have no desire to pass judgment on \
any of the eminent counsel appearing
in the case. for, as each had his little
piece to say. it is fair to assume each
did it to the best of his ability. Gen. J
Butler tried now and then to make me
the subject for his repartee, but as 1 re- j
mained silent in the presence of his !
challenge, it proved ineffectual. As j
near as 1 can judge, the sentiment in
the Last concerning the anarchists
is similar to that in Chicago,
namely, that they ought and !
will suffer for their crime. So far
as the commutation of their sentence is
concerned, 1 shall do nothing. 1 shall
neither oppose nor aid in that direction.
1 know nothing of the movement said
be on foot in favor of Fielden.: although '■■
it is possible thai some of his friends I
are working to that end. " In view of the
extraordinary stories printed in the
Eastern press and cabled under the
water. I thought it wise to see the new
mayor, who since the IMb of April of
this year has occupied the enair which ;
for many years previous was filled by j
Carter Harrison: The mayor of Chicago
must necessarily be a historic figure,
born of the present crisis. His name is
John A. Roche. lie was born in I'tica.
N. V., in August, !sh. When he was
ban years old his family moved to
Worcester, Mass., where he resided un- J
til sixteen ears of age. in the meantime
attending the common schools, where
was laid the „: ->,-.•"-. I

sinee acquired. In his sixteenth year
he removed to New York city, and im- !
mediately on hi- arrival became a pat-
tern maker's apprentice, serving the
full period of four years in that occupa
tion.' During all this time lie attended I
the night schools at Cooper Institute, in I
New York city, taking civil and me-
chanical engineering as ii special course. '
Having reached the age of twenty years, !
lie went to Boston and became em- !
ployed .is engineer in superintending ',
the construction of factories throughout
New England. Some time after he re- ;
turned to New York and devoted sev
eral years to the perfection of certain
machinery invented by himself and
afterwards patented, lie then found
employment with the Corliss Steam
Engine company in Rhode Island. In |
1867 he removed to Chic ago. Once here.
he engaged in the machinery business,
that of furnishing supplies and
equipping factories. car shops
etc., throughout the Northwest. Soon
after he became one of the firm of W.A.
James. Roche & Spencer, but about ten
years ago he accepted the management
of J. A. Fay's Machinery company, one
of the most extensive establishments of
its kind in the country. His residence
in Chicago has been continuous for the
past twenty years, in IS7I he married
Miss Emma Howard, of Chicago, and
four children have been the result of
their union, three of whom ate still liv-
ing, the oldest being thirteen years of
age. lie is a resident of the the Twelfth
ward, having his home at No. 432 War-
ren avenue. On the tilth of last March
he received the nomination for mayor
of Chicago on the first ballot and was
elected by over 28,900 majority. 1 was
told the proper way io approach Brother
Roche was through the medium of the
county treasurer, Mr. Lewis. I entered

office of lite mayor. I found ready ac-
cess through the courteous aid of his
private secretary, c,. I*. English, long
and favorably known as a writer upon
the staff of the Chicago Tribune. Mayor
Roche is a fine-looking man, and I was
favorably impressed with his appear-
ance as lie ruse to greet your repre
sentative. A Iter the ordinary common-
place he said: -1 am glad that you
have come to see our city is person.
There are no troops patrolling our
streets. There is no unusual police force
on duty. Trade and commerce pursue !
their " vocations undisturbed citi :
zens go to and fro unexecnited,
and save in imagination there is no per-
turbation, no excitement, no appreben
sion, no-terror. lam convinced (and he
lighted a fresh cigar), that there is no
organized opposition here to the consti-
toted authorities.' We know all that
goes on. Our detectives attend the I
nodalis tic meetings. Talk ye audp'en.y :
of it, and blood red, so far as utterance
goes, but there is no harm in that kind
of explosion any more than in the fierce
vaporing- that issue from the steam
gauge. We know all there is -all there
is .— i, 2.11 1— i; threatened, all that is
-one. We ire absolutely prepared tor .
everything and everybody. Gur patrol
service will enable us to concentrate a
force ofSOOor even 400 men at any given
point in five minutes" time. But there
is no necessity foi that. Our police
simply continue

with the exception of a si nail extra de- ;
tail at the jail. Now. as for these con
demned men, with them I, as mayor and
as individual, have absolutely nothing
to do. As individuals. 1 naturally feel
tor them the sympathy which any lion- |
est man must entertain for men so near
the terrible fate that awaits them, but
as the mayor of this city , its chief mag- i
istrate, in whose hands its peace and
good order arc centered, feel there-
sponsibility of preserving absolutely the
peace, I can do it. The force- at my
disposal is entirely competent, — my
lodgment, to keep the peace of -the
town as absolute on the day of the cxc-
cution as it is this sunshiny moment.
The sympathy which I feel for these
men as men in trouble is shared, I
think, by all the citizens of
the town, and it is particularly
keen for those who have wives anil
children. You know that each day they
have what is called an exercise hour, at
which time the wives and little ones are
permitted to came to what is called the
prisoners' cage, an' enclosure in the
corridor, and between the bars the
wives thrust their fingers, which the
poor men kiss and fondle, while the lit-
tle ones at times are permitted to enter
the cage, and a most touching sight it
is. 1 assure you, as they are fondled in
their fathers* •—ins, or" carried- around
upon their shoulders. At these hours
many visitors ask permission to enter,
and it is freely granted, for there is
really no danger. They are all married
save two, and they have sweethearts."
"It is generally believed, Mr. Mayor.
that in case the supreme court decides.
as it probably will, adversely, the gov
ernor will interfere on the behalf of
some of those men, commuting their
punishment to a long term of imprison-
ment. Is that so understood here?''
FIELD]— I AM) sf —WAD.
"I believe that Fielden and Schwab,
through their friends, anticipate favor-
able action by the governor. Fielden,
however, is the only one who has peti
tioned the governor; Parsous,you know,
says. "Give me liberty or" give me
death." and he is the only American-
born among them all. a brother of Gen.
Parsons, formerly of the Confeder-
ate service from the state of Texas; but
1 wish it to be distinctly understood that
with the execution per se the mayor of
the city has absolutely nothing to do.
lie is charged, as I have said, simply
with the preservation of the peace, in
the town. For that he relies primar
ily upon the police. If they fail he
calls upon the sheriff, who has power to
enlist citizens, and if he fails we call
upon the state, when the governor
must furnish troops. The sheriff
is like myself, a Republican, and we
are in entire accord in this grave and
serious matter. The preparations for
the execution are made. For them the
sheriff alone is responsible. He will in-
vite to that execution his deputies, the
jury which convicted the condemned,
the representatives of newspapers prop-
erly accredited and a jury to view, in
legal parlance, the body, a kind of col-
oner's jury, who will testify as to the
cause of death. I am very glad to
have the opportunity to assure the coun-
try that all talk about apprehension of
turmoil, of bloodshed, of social or civic
upheaval, is worse than bosh. - It is
born of the diseased imagination of peo
ple who write for the foreign press,
which would find no countenance here,
because the editors of our local papers
know better, and the evidence of our
multitudinous citizenship would con-
trovert any expression of that kind."
It is but fair to say that the feeling of
entire security expressed by Mayor
Roche seems to be shared by the solid
men of the city.
wai:i:kn F. I.ELAXD,
known as a chief member of the great
I— land family; proprietor of the Leland
hotel here, represents quite a million of
taxable property here and is outspoken
in his feeling that the law must take its
course. "Those men," said he, "were
charged, tried ami convicted of a specific
crime. Every avenue of the law was
opened up to them. They have had ex-
pert counsel and a perfectly fair trial.
Had they had anything but a fair trial I
for one would have been dissatisfied. 1
wanted the thing tested. This a big
country big enough for native-born
Americans and for foreign-born cmi-
grants if they behave themselves. 1
believe in independence of thought,
speech and action, but I also believe in
respect for our constitution and unquali
fied obedience to our laws, foreign
gentry don't like us let them keep
away: If they come here they must
abide by the same laws that govern us.
1 am heartily glad an appeal was taken
from our local court to the supreme
court of the state and from that to the
supreme court of the United States. 1
can see no possible chance for the con- j
demned there, but I am no lawyer. If i
the United States court interferes, its a
citizen, 1 shall say, "all right,' but it
does not, and common sense says it will
not. then in the name of an "outraged
country, I say, 'Let the law take its j
course.' Sympathy is right and proper
and natural, but where does it begin. j

enough to say: 'Anarchists, oh. yes.
Well, let me say to you that Chicago is.
like Illinois in general, -as calm and
placid as the traditional moon in May.
The men sentenced to be hanged will be

mutation, though not overmuch, of the

the court had decided in favor of the
anarchists 1 should have accepted
the decision. As they have decided
against them, I accept that. 1 am i
very glad the condemned had money
enough to pay the expense of their
present appeal. As an American citi-
zen l am heartily glad that they have
exhausted the legal possibilities, so that i
no one can ever say they had no fair !

whole procedure is the delay. Had j
these men been tried and convicted and j
sentenced at once the world would have
applauded; but the lapse of time has j
blunted feeling for the dead and roused
it for the living, and there we are. All
this talk of the blood of the martyrs be- |
in, the seed of the church is poppycock. i
We hear only of the martyrs who died j
for a subsequently proved just cause, ;
but nothing is said of thousands who
died in vain and for causes which. had !
no ground in honor or in truth. ' No.
no! It is the galled jade that winces. J

them during argument, and now if it i

that at least fifty vessels are ashore.
Many of them are total wrecks. As yet
no lives have been reported lost. A

Billings, Mont., Nov. I.— After
: watching Sword Bearer and his 200 fol
lowers for three weeks, the military al
lowed them to make their escape for
i parts unknown last night. They are
1 supposed to have come toward this
! place, and considerable uneasiness is
felt here for the safety of the people
j along the Yellowstone and also at June-
I tion City. The actions of the defiant
I Indians about confirm the belief that
all is not right. It is noticed that all are
well armed, and can make a long strug
gle. Many stockmen, who have cattle
! on the reservation, are sending out men
; for their protection. Just now they are
fat, and many will surely be
i killed by the turbulent reds. The
' citizens here are greatly incensed to
! think that the Indians were allowed to
escape to make trouble, when they
might have been captured. .
S:3O p. in.— News has just reached
here that 150 Nez Perces have arrived
on the Crow reservation. They say
they came to trade with the Crows, hut
as their nature is well kncwn by the
settlers many think their coming means
no good. Fears for the safety of set-
tlers increases as time advances, and
there is some talk of organizing a min
ute company, to be on hand in case of
emergency. It is needless to say that
trie people have good cause for the fears
entertained. . ■ "v:-
A FARGO SENSATION.
The Board of Trade Declares
Against Local Option and Pro-
hibition.
Special to the Globe. • v .-.--.-
Pabgo, Dak., Nov. I.— The hoard of
trade to-day threw a bomb into the local
option ranks by the adoption of the fol
lowing preamble and resolutions:
Whereas, Rxjierience has demonstrated in
those stales where it lias been tried that pro-
hibition, or the refusal to grant license to
sell and deal — intoxicating liquors under
proper restrictions, has not aided the cause
„ temperance, but on the contrary has gen
erally resulted in the extension of the evils
incident to their improper and excessive use;
! and
Whereas, It has come to the knowledge of
■ this board that in severut counties the ques-
lion of license or no license is not to be sub
' mined to their voters, and for that reason a
j uniform policy on that question in this terri
! Tory is impossible: and
Whereas, In the opinion of this board it
will be detrimental to the material commer-
I cial interests of this city and county to adopt
i the policy of no license by reason of our
! close proximity to a state where license is
1 granted, and on account of the great reduc
; tion of municipal revenues that tinevita-
I — y follow: lie it therefore
Resolved. That it is the sense of the board
} of trade, of the city of Farge, that a policy In
its nature prohibiting of the sale of intoxi
i eating liquors ought not to be adopted in
; this city or comity, but on the contrary their
sale should be permitted under such rules
and regulations as will restrain and keep in
check those who are licensed to deal in them;
and it is further ■ :
Resolved. That this board is in favor of
high license, but not ot prohibition in this
eiiv or county, null's* it can be universal
throughout the territory and the several
states.
There was a hot time in the board
over the matter, it being urged that pro-
hibition would reduce the value of prop-
erty 25 to 40 per cent. The minority in-
sisted that it "was political in character
and should not lie acted Upon, none how-
ever favoring prohibition. The busi-
ness interests are nearly solid against
local option, but the a. tion of the board
has caused a great local sensation and
will make the contest red hot.
A Dairy Convention.
Dißtoi k. 10., Nov. The dairy
convention opened at Manchester to-
day under favorable auspices. At 10
o'clock a special train arrived with del-
egates from New York, Boston, Chi

Hey wood in Trouble.
Chicago, Nov. I.— Alfred Heywood
& Son, which is classed as the largest
provision importing house in Liverpool,
England, was made defendant in a suit
for $5,000 in the circuit court to-day by

come of an American venture made by
the Hey woods in ISBS, when they pur-
chased of Mr. Whitney a packing-house
at Atlantic, 10.. and commenced to pack
hogs and cattle and ship them to Liver-
pool. The venture was a failure, how-
ever, and the business was discontinued.
Mr. Whitney claims that the woods
still owe' him $5,000. Alfred Heywood
visited Clrcago last week and was ar-
rested last Saturday evening on a capias
issued at the instance of Henry Meade,
ah engineer, who claims money due
him under a contract for services." Hey-
wood spent Saturday night in jail but
was released the next day.

Special to the Globe,
Fargo, Dak., Nov. I.— ln regard to
his resignation, Adjt.-Gen. Tyner states
that it was tendered verbally to Gov.

frankly told him hat he had previously
promised the place to Gen. Jenkins. In
July Gens. Tyner and Jenkins met the
governor at " Huron and a resignation
was formally tendered, to be accepted

Loxdox, Nov. I.— The failure of the
prosecution of Policeman Endicott for
traducing the character of Miss Cass, is
a subject of regretful comment among
citizens generally and in the press.
The Pall Mall Gazette, "which took a
leading part in the crusade against the
police methods, illustrated by the Cass
arrest, is especially bitter against Judge
Stephen, who deemed the evidence
against Endicott insufficient to hold him
on. The Gazette says that it may now
he accepted as English law that there is
no redress for any person accused by a
policeman according to Judge Stephen.
Remarks the editor: "If the vilest man
on the force were to swear that the
Prince— of "Wales was soliciting, be
could not be held for perjury unless the
princess produced witnesses to sustain
her denial. The ordinary role of law that
the burden of proof is on the accuser is
set at naught, but the responsible offi
cials of the police department are. saved
from danger of decapitation, and this
boon doubtless outweighs one woman's
reputation." Endicott will, as the re-
sult of the decision, be restored to his
position and receive his back pay in
full. The outcome of the case has been
unfortunate for Miss Cass in all re-
spects. Though it is conceded that there
was no proof of anything improper in
her conduct on the evening of her ar-
rest, when she was carrying a bundle
for delivery for her employers, yet the
great resources of the police department
have been used in
TRACING lIEK HISTORX
during her whole life, and the result
has been the discovery of some pecca
dilloes which have been magnified as
much as possible in order to discredit
her before the public. It was
shown that she was frivolous and indis-
cret in her conduct before coming to
I— ndon, though nothing worse than
flirtation was proven. The police also,
without any proof to that, effect, in-
sinuated that her sudden marriage after
,the proceedings began was arranged in
"order to offset medical evidence . as to
her chastity. It is argued, however,' by
those interested in criticising the action
of the police that this line of attack was
an evasion of the. real issue and could
have no bearing on the right of an
officer to make arbitrary arrests [of
women against whom no evidence
could be produced of improper conduct
at the time of the arrest.- The police
certainly have no cause to congratulate
themselves on the result of the whole
affair, however much Miss Cass may
have been damaged by it. .- r-:

his voice is at least stronger than for

belief in his complete recovery, not-
withstanding occasional temporary im

The quiescence of the unemployed
during the past week or so must not be
taken as an indication of the complete
disappearance of those bugbears of the
police. It is said that they are only
resting on their laurels and quietly
organizing for new efforts. Many fear
that the lawless element will choose
lord mayor's day as the occasion of a
.serious demonstration. At any rate,
there is a general impression that the
proletariat will show themselves in the
near future in less grotesque and more
serious ways than hitherto.
Gladstone.
London, Nov. I.— Mr. Gladstone has
written a letter in reply to a question
regarding free education, in which he
says: "I wish to avoid entering into a
new controversy. I am devoted to the
settlement of one subject, on the prog-
ress of which all other subjects must
depend." W. 11. Smith, first lord of the
treasury and government leader in the
house of commons, .writes regarding the
charges made -* by Mr. Gladstone,
that the r- ministry is setting
the example of a law-breaker in Ireland,
that the ministry cannot deal seriously
with the charges, which are refuting
themselves. The mini— ry, he says, is
amenable to the courts if it be a' law-'
breaker.

confirmed the Mitchelstown sentence
against Mr. O'Brien under circumstan
ces astounding even to those accus
tomed to the mockery of laws prevail-
ing in Irish courts. If Mr. O'Brien's
friends had force enough present they
would have rescued him at any cost.
He would scorn a people who, having
the power to procure liberty, would sub

handover the ship to him at the risk of
being abandoned on the ocean. All the
English crew boarded the Menzaleh and
laid hands on everything of value. He
hints that the- Menzaleh was . sunk

were treated with the utmost rudeness.
A Constable Exonerated.
Loxdox, Nov. I.— The prosecution of
Constable Endicott, who arrested Miss
Cass on the charge of being an improper
character, and who was indicted by the
Middlesex grand: jury for " perjury be-

has collapsed. The judge before whom
the case was heard held that the cvi-

and discharged the constable. -

Eight Lives Lost by an Explo
sion at St. Louis— Other
Casualties.
Sturgeon Bay, Wis., Nov. The
schooner S. B. Pomeroy passed here to-
day with Alfred Stone, one ot the fire
- men of the ill-fated steamer Vernon.
He was picked up last night eight miles "
from Sheboygan on a raft. A dead body
Was found on the raft with him, sup-
posed to be another fireman. Stone
says he awoke as the boat was sinking
and jumped through a window and
found the life raft with six persons on
it. He says there were fifty people on
board. When he jumped into the water
there were people scattered around in
life "preservers. He saw the life raft
on the crest of a wave and succeeded in
reaching it. The ice-cold water dashed
over the raft. chilling and freezing every
one on it. One by one they succumbed
and were swept off by the waves. Float-
ing about in the life preservers they
stflod a poor chance in the terrible sea
that was raging. He saw several per-
sons torn out of preservers by the vio
lence of the waves, and go down never
to reappear. There was little shrieking
or confusion. "The next morning,"
continued Stone, "I was left alone on
the raft, the others all having been
overcome by the cold and fallen off. I
saw a steamer approaching from the
north.
I WAVED M\ HANDKERCHIEF FKAN-
„ __._,
hoping to attract the attention of the
steamer, but she passed by about a half-
mile away. 1 thought my fate was
sealed. The waves were continuously
washing over the raft, taxing my rapidly
failing strength to the utmost" to hold
on. The sea began going down on Sat-
urday and the water stopped washing
over the raft. This gave me no relief
from the cold, as 1 was wet through and
frost-bitten, but was no longer in danger
of being swept off. I was about over-
come with fatigue, hunger and
cold * when the schooner Pomeroy
picked me up. 1 think. the. cause of
the disaster can never; be known, as 1
am probably the only survivor. When ;
T awoke the steamer was' sinking and I
had only time to get outside before she
went down. 1 think most of the people
on board went down with her. It is
likely that her machinery gave out and
she got in the trough of the sea and her
side was stove in by a wave. lam not
certain that her engines gave out, but
she lay in the trough of the sea when
she sunk. The top of the cabin was
forced off .when she went down and a
few people climbed upon it, but it soon
broke up." ?:-. :+:
It was 5 o'clock yesterday morning
when Stone was picked up. The dead
man was the other fireman. The other
six on the little raft died of exposure,
the steward dying two hours after going
on the raft. Stone does not remember
the names of any of the persons on the
raft with him. •..-.", ;
FROM ANOTHER COHERES-—
Stuigeon Bay, Wis., Nov. I.— to
the arrival of the schooner' Pomeroy,
from Chicago, which passed through the
bay to-day, it was supposed that not a
single survivor was left of the forty or
fifty people on board the propeller Ver-
non, which went down off Sheboygan
early last Saturday morning. It is now
known, however, that at least one man
lives to tell the tale of that terrible night
on Lake Michigan. The Pomeroy has
on board the only survivor, so far as is
now known, of that awful disaster. The
name of the man who has thus been res-
cued from death after he had given up
all hope of ever again setting his foot
upon dry land, is Alfred Stone,
of Chicago, one of the Vernon's crew.
He had been in the water sixty hours,
exposed to a bitter piercing wind, and
without a bite to eat, when the Pomeroy
discovered him on a raft last night
about eight miles from Sheboygan. It
was a clear, moonlight night. Stone
was so cold as to be , almost helpless,
and so weak from hunger that he could
scarcely move. Although still very
weak from the effects of his awful ex-
perience, Stone was able to make a
brief statement of the never-to-be-for-
gotton night. "I was awakened in the
middle of the night," lie says, "by the
cries of the passengers and crew "that
the vessel was sinking. I sprang out
of the window and found myself on a
life raft with six other persons. ' I can-
not say now who my companions were.
Part of them were
1— — -M OF THE CREW
and part were passengers. It seemed
only a moment before the vessel had
gone down, and I believe that all but a
few of those on board went down wit-
her. Ido not know just how many peo
ple were aboard at the time, but the
number could not have been far from
fifty. We passed through an awful
night. I think I never saw such a sea
as that which tossed our little raft at its
mercy. When daylight came we hoisted
a signal of distress, using a coat tied to
an oar. Two vessels passed so . near us
Saturday that they must have seen our
signal, yet for some reason they appar
ently made no effort to reach us. The
storm still raged and it may be that they
had all they could do to save themselves.
"One after another of my companions
perished in the cold or was washed off
the raft when they became too numb
with the cold to hold on any longer. We
never saw any others from the sunken
steamer, and 1 don't believe any others
survived. The vessel went down so
suddenly that the crew hadn't time. to
man the boats."
When Stone was picked up there was
the corpse of one man on the raft with
him, the other four having perished
several hours before. Stone says this
man was one of the crew whose name
he does not know.
A tug that went to search for the
bodies of the lost Vernon's crew and
passengert to-day picked up two floaters.
They were evidently members of .-'the
crew, but unidentified. One of them
was in the water in perpendicular posi
tion, being held up by a life preserver
that had slipped up under his head. The
other body floated on the surface.

familes while wrapped in slumber. An
explosion of gasoline in the rear, of the

foundation and dropped it back again in
a mass, beneath which were . buried

Miss Mamie Newman, aged eighteen'

before fire swept" through the ruins,
But good work began and then began!
the search for the dead. A store was'
on the corner of the alley running j
through from Fourteenth to Targeo •
street, and was the noi th room of the :
building, covering 7. 9 and 11 Southl
Fourteenth street. The building, a*
two-story brick, was completed but a!
short time ago and only one storeroom 4.
was occupied. All the up stairs portion j
was occupied by tenements. Mr. New-
man and his family of seven lived over!
the store. The force of the explosion
was terrific, the entire block of build-'
ings north of and across the alley from!
the building in which the explosion
took place were gutted by the blast:

These were soon removed, and in the!
debris were revealed the mangled forms
of the grocery man's family. Two ladies,;
Newman's daughters, were first re-
moved. Mamie, nineteen years of age,
was still alive, but mangled from the tim-
bers and charred by fire, was beyond'
the hope of recovery. Her sister Nellie,';
a girl of fifteen, moaned piteously for;
her sister.- For the half hour that these'
two had been imprisoned their efforts
had been to draw near to each other!
when they saw escape impossible.'
Neither can survive. The rest of the
Newman family were dead. Some sat'
upright and others were doubled in their j
beds. Life had evidently fled while
they were wrapped in slumber. In the
same building, over storeroom No. 9,
lived Charles Devere, a traveling sales-
man and his wife. Visiting them was

at every turn. She was firmly ' pinnedl -

what means she employed to get out,:
but as she twisted and struggled in

cated the brave girl, who battled bravely,
for life. Relief appeared hopeless,' but
just as she sank back in despair the
ruins settled down and the overhanging
timbers were raised from the limbs'
which were fettered in the deadly em
brace. No time was to be .lost, as the
fire pressed close around her. With an

to her feet, and staggering, falling and!'
rolling she made her way through . the'
ruins without knowing where she was
going, nor possessing Dower to see or

house, and climbing through a balcony,
sank down in a swoon. A neighbor
found her there and carried her into the
street, where '••.;■.. k.:?::;

the victims from the huge heap of j

daughter. Miss Fatty. With them were '
two boarders, Charles Eifford and ,Mrs.
Beasiey. The last -named was buried
so deeply in the debris that the search!
for her was given up until the others
were removed. An unknown man of
forty years was found in the debris and'
removed to the morgue. Besides those
injured in this building were many per-
sons in the neighborhood more or less
cut and bruised from the flying splinters
and bricks. It did not alone destroy the ,
Newman block. For several blocks on
either side of the street the concussion
shattered the windows, and in the I im-

the way the fronts of buildings were
mashed in ; by the terrible force, and
scarcely a window or a door remains.

plaster fell in almost every house:

on the heads of the sleeping residents
fell with horrible suddenness. Their
mad rushing and flight from they knew .

scene of terror on the street was'
illuminated by the ghastly glare of con-

uncertainty and fright that had seized
