had a roon in the hotel. Every physician
in Syracuse is on the ground. Most of those
killed were on the fourth and fifth floors.
A i 3 o'clock the hotel is still burning.
Vague rumors are afloat that the list of
. kl!i d will number fifty persons; but this
fact cannot be substantiated, and it is be

The guard - lines stretched across the
' streets art' inalcqiate to keep back the
. . su g crowd- of people that are picked in
' the streets leading to the hotel, and police
are stationed all arounl the building.
The scenes and incidents connected with
the rescue of the inmates are heart-rending
in the extreme. The cries of women stand
i:,,' in th« upper winlows and of the ex
cited crowd below were deafening, and
adJed to this the constant roar of many fire
engines created a Babel of confusion and
panicky excitement in and around the hotel.
The newspaper representatives are en
deavoring with all the energy at their com

A man and woman were seen locked in
each other's arms in a window on the fifth
floor at the northeast corner of the building.
Below them was a perfect sea of flames. No
issibilily of escape, except by the window,
was open to them, and that seemed to be inev
itable death. No assistance could reach them
and the woman seemed to be anxious to
jump, but her husband was earnestly en
treating her to desist. The crowd below
waited with bated breath. The woman
made one last effort to jump, but was re
. strained by her husband, and the cry of the
< : wd signaled the awful end that must
have befallen them as they fell backward
into the room into a mass of flames.
At a wind w on the fourth floor, almost
■ directly under this, a woman was sur
rounded on all sides from the interior of the
. room by the fierce flames. She seemed iircso
' lute as to whether to jump to the pavement
or face the fiery foe that was fast encroach
ing on her liberties and life. She stepped
upon the sill of the window and placed her
■ hands above her head. The people in the
street shuddered, and turned their faces to
shut out the horrible sight that must meet
their gaze should the woman jump totho
ground. She Beeuu'd to be withheld
. either by fear or a feeling that
. escape would come from some other
source. She stepped down from the sill into
the 'room, but remained at the window but
an instant when the whole room became
. enveloped in flames and she sank back from
The frightful shrieks of the guests and the
crackle of the flames could be heard for

. so rapidly that most of the people on the
upper floors were obliged to use fire-escapes

One woman appeared at a window in a
room on the north side of the building with
a baby in her arms. Her pitiful cries for
brlp were heard until the flames gathered

on this side of the building. The woman
was told to throw out a rope or jump

a rope, and as she was in the act of

ready caught fire from flying sparks. The
victims were half uak d, and several of
them were seen to tear off their
undergarments that had caught fire. One
woman lay on the ground, where she had
fallen, tearing her hair from her head. Her
hair had caught fire, and it was with diffi
culty that the flames were quenched. She,
together with others who had jumped from
the rear windows, was picked up and carried
on a stretcher to a saloon in the
neighborhood. In this saloon several par
sous lay on the pool tables In all positions.
One of the women was Annie Sehwarlz, a
laundry girl employed in the hotel. She
was rescued from the rear of the fourth
llo'irby a colored man, who had already
saved several others of the help.
The doors of Gray Bros., shoe manufact
urers, across the street, were smashed in,
and several persons were carried there on
stretchers. The police office was turned
into a hospital and the patrol wagons into
One of the inn-t frightful incidents of the
fire was the terrible death of a woman who
jumped from the fifth story. Several police
men stood on the sidewalk, holding nets
ready to eatcli the guests as they
jumped. Two persons, a man and a woman,
jumped into one of the nets almost at the
same m inent and escaped with broken limbs.
The next to jump was a woman, who
appeared iv a window on the fifth story in
her night-clothes. She leaped out of the
window, and, missing the net, was dashed
to pieces on the stone sidewalk. Sim was
picked up and removed to the Morgue.
One of the firemen told this story of the
woman who was killel by jumping: "When
we first came we were hampered by the tel
eraph wires on West Fayette street. While
trying to raise a ladder it be
came caught iv the wires. The woman
stood in the window crying for help.
The flames were leaping out toward her
and -he was frantic with fright. I went up
the ladder to cut the wires. While I was
doing this she jumped, thinking we could
Dot rei'.ch her. aid the awful result was she
missal the net and was killed."
It is now 433 o'c'nek, and although the
hotel is still burning the Fire Department
has the flames under control. There
are four dead bodies lying at different
undertaking establishments, and one dead at
St Joseph's Hi spital. These bodies are as
yet unidentified. It will be utteily impos
sible to learn definitely how many were
burned to death, and some of the bodies will
never be found.
A remarkable coincidence is the fact that
to-day a .neeting of the assurance adjusters
of this State was to have taken place at the
hotel. The proprietors of the hotel are

New Youk, Oct. 15. — Confusing state
ments having appeared regarding the Amer
ican mission O! the Irish leaders, Mr. T. 11.
Gill, a member of the delegation, now in
this city, to-night made a definite statement
to the Associated Press. The other mem
bers of the delegation— John Dillon, Will
iam O'Brien, T. P. O'Connor, T. D. Sulli
van and Timothy Harrington, will be here
within the next fortnight. The object of
the mission, which is formally vested with
the most complete, representative authority to
speak for l'arnell mid the Irish Parliament
ary party and for the Iri>h people, is to ap
peal to the Irish race and all friends of Ire
land in America for support In the struggle
which the Irish people an- making to protect
their lives, homes and liberty against the
combined forces of coercion, land
lordism and misgovernnienl, and to
advance the cause which has for
its goal the establishment of a native legis
lature in Dublin which will enable the
Irish people to govern themselves and de
velop the resources of their country, anil the
Irish nation to fulfill the destiny of which
ler sons believe she has been called. "Thj
delegates will," said Mr. Gill, "tell the story
of how that struggle is being carried on,
both on the soil of Ireland and in
spreading the home rule propaganda among
the electorate of Great Britain. They will
explain the circumstances under which
syndicates of Tory capitalists have con
spired with the coercion Government mid
the Irish land orris, with the .-pedal view of
exhausting tlie pecuniary resources of the
national struggle. The delegates will appeal
for the support of nil who c:ui indorse
their position, and who arc willing, if only
in thn interests of fair play, to prevent Ire
land from being handicapped in the struggle
for want ol those sinews of war her wealthy
enemies can command without limit. The
delegates confidently look to the people of
their own race in America to assume the
duty of making the mission a success and
hope to see every class and section and
body representative of the Irish race co
operating unitedly and loyally in this great
effort for the sake ci the old land."
Mr. Gill wishes it understood that much
time will be saved if Irish-Americans of
various localities will . enter into communi

A Large Portion of the List Two Volume* of
I^elty's Work Devoted to It. , i ■'
London, Oct. 15.— two final volumes
of Lecky's History of England in the Eigh
teenth Century, being the seventh and
eighth, appeared to-day. They are taken
up largely with Irish history. In discuss
ing the work and political career of Ilnry
Grattan, Lepky says: : "While Grattan al
ways "maintained with fervid eloquence the
cause of Irish nationality and Catholic
emancipation, his strongest conviction was
that the true interests of England p.ud Ire
land were Inseparable." Lecky shows that
the absenteeism of Irish landlords has been
responsible in a very high degree for the in
famous abuses which have been developed
in the management of Irish property, and
at the same time the author points out that
the improvidence and ignorance of the Irish
people have been the pimcipal causes in
creating very serious congestion of the vx»pu
lation in certain portions of li eland where
tho soil Is miserable and unfitted to sustain
so many people. The Times says Lecky has
preserved Intact the Integrity of this histori
cal conscience. Here partisans of either side
of the. Irish controversy will be bitteily dis
appointed at the book. >'. -
Lecky Illumes the middle-men and farm
ers fur the terrific extortion which has re
sulted from the system of competitive rents
during the last two centuries. He contends
that through the influence of the wave of
Democratic feeling, Ireland was accorded a
n;i eh lamer representation in Parliament
than she was entitled to, considering: the
fact that a inajoiity of the Irish people was
dissatisfied. The historian tracea the rise
and progress of Fenianism and says : "After
the downfall of the Fenian Society came the
creation of tho agrarian organization^ the
Eripinoters of which were largely paid
y the Fenians. This movement bUCCefded
In establishing over a great i art of
lifland an elaborate tyranny. It |is
difficult to estimate the extent to which
this has demoralized the liish people and
destroyed their capacity for self-sovarn-
Lecky declares that the Fenians have not
abandoned any ot the ulterior objects of
thrir organization, but have consented to
tho agitation for home rule as an approxi
mate cud because this would confer legisla
tive power upon the National League. The
achievement of horn« rule wnuld thus be
come a leverage for attaining their ultimate
design. In conclusion Lecky contrasts the
complete success with which England has
governed India with its 200, 000,000 of people
with the failure of England to rule in Ire
land, where there are only 3,000,000 of dis

blame should be, attached to either the peo

action it was compelled to take, although it
might not give public expression to Its leel
