Peculiar Apparent iegU;rence The
Deadly Dynamite Begins to "Thaw
Ont" and Record It Victims. ,
Columbus, O , Nov. 11 One of the
most disastrous fires in years, from the
fnct that an entire family were cousumed,
occurred here early yesterday morning
in a row of tenement Looses on North
High street. The exact origin of the fire
remains a mystery, but on the first alarm
flames were seen shooting; from the roof,
licking op everything within grasp. The
firemen endeavored to enter the rooms,
bat the dense smoke made this useless.
One of the captains did get partially in
side the building but was pulled ont
again nearly suffocated. Two hours were
consumed in gaining control of the flames
and long before that every person was
supposed to have escaped. Such, how
ever, was not the case.
Five Itodies Burned to a Crisp.
It was nearly 4 in the afternoon when a
little girl living in the neighborhood with
childish curiosity rummaged through the
rains and found a naked arm, which led
to a search and the ultimate discovery of
five blackened bodies, burned to a crisp
and beyond recognition. The e'ntire fam
ily of Charles Bethers was destroyed
while sleeping in a little eight by twelve
room in the second story. They were
Charles Bether-, ased 30 years; Elizabeth,
his wife, asd 2S; Carrie, aged 9; Myrtie,
aged 6, and James, aged 3. The clock on
the rasntel had stopped at 3:35 a. m , in
dicating the hour of the fire. In fighting
the fiimes two of the pipemn stood in a
window, sending a stream into this room,
without discovering the dying occupants,
who were unconscious and unable to ot
ter a cry.
The Horrifying Discovery.
The search among the ruins following
the victory over the fire was not as rigid
as it should have been, and, nothing being
found, the entire iorce was ordered back
to quarters. Toward the middle of the
afternoon Mrs. Garrison, a friend of the
family, walked from the other end of the
city to inquire after their safety. No one
was able to give her the desired informa
tion. Meeting little Jimmy Kirwan, who
was playing among the ruins, she learned
that a body was in t Leashes. The fire
men were summoned and took up the
second search.. What they discovered was
How the Victims Were Foond
In that cigar-box room were three beds,
cradle, stove and bureau. Near the door
lay the father with the infant clasped in
bis arms. It was evident that be bad
awakened to the realization of the danger,
and bad started out with the child when
overcome by the beat. The mother, kneel
ing near' the head of the bed, was half
buried beneath the falling roof. The two
girls slept, as they bad retired, in their
little cot. All of the bodies, with the
flesh dropping from their bones, were re
moved to the coroner's.
Might Easily Have Been Raved.
The fire is supposed to be of incendiary
origin, as two suspicions characters were
seen leaving the scene as the flames were
started. A full investigation will follow,
and not a little criticism is passed upon
the action of the fire department in not
making a thorough examination before
leaving. The room was only ten feet from
the gronnd, and the entire family might
bave been rescued.

Buffalo, Nov. H This town has been
at the mercy of a gang of expert burglars
