DIE IN FIRE AT GHIGAGO
Continued From First Page.
instant the flames were caught by the
draught in the elevator shaft and carried
up with a roar. Newell shouted to sev
eral men in the alley to give the alarm
and to warn the inmates of the- danger.
Several hurried to do this, but by the
time they reached the first floor of the
building tfie flames had been carried to
the roof, had eaten through it and were
leaping high in the air.
Several Jump From Window**.
As the cry of fire rang through the
building patients sprang from their beds,
and before they could be prevented, sev
eral had jumped from the windows to the
pavement. The fire department was on
the scene within a few minutes, and as
the windows were filled with people
shrieking for help the firemen devoted
their first efforts to saving lives andi al
lowed the fire to burn.
While this was the means of saving a
largs nuirber of people who were carried
down the ladders by the firemen, it gave
tho fire s\ en a headway that there was
almost no chance for those on the upper
floors of the building to make their es
cape, and such of them as were not suf
focated were killed or badly injured by
leaping from the windows,
Aid. Kent was in the room on the fifth
floor with his attendant, A. W. Wattles.
The alderman, who has been totally blind
for many years, was in a strait-jacket,
and his hands were manacled to a belt
that passed around his waist. When the
alarm of fire was sounded Wattles ran
to investigate. He found the elevator
shaft a mass of flames and ran back to
help ihe alderman, who, blind and unable
to do anything with his hands, was al
most mad with fear and was shouting
like an In-sane person.
He had groped his way to the door,
and by the time his attendant had reach
ed him ha.d fallen to the floor overcome
with smoke. Wattles seized him and tried
to drag him down the hall to a place of
safety, but Kent had become so crazed
that it was almost impossible to do any
thing with him. Wattles was finally com
pelled to run for his life, as the flames
were already scorching his clothing. He
tan to a window on the south 'side of the
building across which were iron bars.
Wattles managed to tear two of these
from their fastenings, and with two other
men who had followed him climbed out
on the sill. They were seen by the fire
men, who called to them to remain where
they were and t'ney would save them.
A ladder was run up as high as possible
and the two men with Wattles were tak
en down. He became crazed with excite
ment, and not waiting for the return of
the firemen sprang for a net which some
men were holding on the sidewalk be

the sidewalk, and sustained Injuries which
probably will cause his death in a short

cident. He was in bed when the fire
broke out, and on going to the door of
his room found escape In that direction
cut off. Hofobling to the window he
climbed out on the window cill. He was
without clothing, and when he saw the
great crowd below, he crawled .back into
the smoke, and came out again wrapped
in a blanket. He was soon taken down
by the firemen, and when being carried
away in an ambulance said that ho
would rather have been injured than
have to come out through that window
undressed. Later his wooden leg was
found and restored to him. He escaped
without injury of any sort.
Made Prisoners by Bars.
A scene that wrought to the pitch of
madness the great crowd that had gath
ered around the building was enacted at
a fourth story window on the north side.
Across this window was a heavy wire
screen, and on the outside of the screen
were iron bars running parallel to tha
sill. The space laetween these bars was
too small to allow the passage of even a
small boy, and behind them were gath
ered! a crowd of men whose numbers
were afterward found to be between
twenty-five and thirty. Escape in other
directions was impossible, for the fire
filled all the halls, and was steadily
eating its way toward the window, at
which the men were standing. The one
chance for life for th« crowd of men lay

through that screen and barred window
The men closest to the screen tore and
tugged at it in a vain effort to tear it
from its fastenings, and the men behind
them fought madly to get close enough
to the screen to fasten their fingers in
it. So fiercely did the prisoners pull at
the screen that from the street below
were plainly visible tiny streams of blood
that trickled from lacerated fingers and
hands, and flowed over the window sill.
A number of the men at the window
were in strait-jackets and manacles, and
those not being able to help themselves
or others were the wildest of all in their
frantic efforts to break through the bars.
Crowd an Imiane Mob.
The crowd in the street watching the
desperate si'.uation of the men behind the
screen were simply an insane mob. They
shouted all sorts of commands and di
rections at the men, and gave orders to
the firemen, who were doing all that
men could to get through the bars from
the outside. As the flames came stead
ily toward the men, the people in tha
street* jumped up and down and sreamed
in helpless rage. It seemed as though
nothing could be done, and that all of
the men would die within six inches of
That any of the men escaped at all is
owing to the work of W. B. Davis, of
Cedar Rapids, lowa, a paueat in the ln
eituation. He induced the men to cease
their disconnected pulling at the screen
and to unite their efforts. Four men at
first took hold of the screen, and in al
most a minute the crowd behind them
pushed them away and before the four
men could get to the screen again they
were compelled to fight with their fists.
Davis managed to get his men to the win
dow again, and aiter a few desperate
pulls they managed to tear down a por
tion of the screen.
Nerved to the work by their success
the bodies of the men swayed back and
forth as they put all of their strength
into one last effort. The hands of erne of
the men were covered with blood, but
he clung on and pulled as best he could,
for he and all with him were to live not
ten minutes longer unless that -screen
came down. And finally it came, the
men in their desperation pulling with it
large pieces of the mortar in which its
sides had been incased.
The screen was gone, but the bars re
mained, and they were heavy, placed for
the purpose of withstanding all the
efforts of insane men, no matter how
strong they might be. As many men as
could place their hands on the lower bar
took hold. It bent, almost doubled, and
six men went to the floor with, a crash,
holding on to the iron Dar which they
had torn from its fastenings. So quickly
did the men behind them spring to grasp
the second bar that those who had torn
down the first were badly trampled on
before they could rise. Another bar
was soon torn away, and the path to
safety was opened.
Then a new danger assailed the pris
oners. The crowd behind, hearing that
at last the way was open, pushed for
ward with such haste that those near
the window were nearly forced through
to meet death on the sidewalk four sto
ries below. The men at the windows
fought to keep their places until the fire
men could raise ladders, and the* men in
the rear, some of whom were already
being reached by the flames, fought to
gain the window.
Jumped to Fire Biicape,
The first man through was Dr. A. C.
Anderson, of Chicago. No ladders were
In front of the window, and Anderson's
one hope was to reach the patform of a
fire escape in front of the window Just
west of where he was. He hesitated for
an Instant, and then sprang for the
fire escape, clutched it, and was safe.
The next man through the window was
G. S. Gott, cf Lavcrgne, 111. Anderson
was so much exhausted that he was not
able to drag Gott after him, and Gott
was so badly burned that he was not
able to make the leap himself. He
crouched on the window sill while the
men on the inside clamored for him to
Clinton Osborne, a real estate dealer of
New York city, was the third man. He
crawled out beside Gott and told the men
inside to grasp his feet. This they did
and, telling Gott to take hold of his
wrists and drop over the window sill,
Osborn hanging head downward swung
Gott, to and fro, until he had acquired
sufficient momentum and . then swung
him up and onto the landing of the fire
escape, where Dr. Anderson seized and
held him and he and Gott then formed a
chain, Gott holding to the fire escape and
Anderson, tightly held by Gott with one
hand, reaching out toward the window,
so that the men one by one as they
crawled through were able to take one
step on a ledge and make a short leap to
the platform of the fire escape down
which they made their way to the
Twenty-five men made their escape In
this manner, and when the last one pass
ed under the iron bar, the building was
a furnace close behind him. He said that
there were several men lying on the floor
overcome by smoke when he left, and
they all perished. It is doubtful if
enough of their bodies will be found to
enable them to be identified.
