New York, June 15. More thnn
700 lives were lost when the steamer
General Slocttm, loaded with ntt
excursion party of about 1500 per
sons from the St. Mark's Lutheran
church, took fire in Hell Gate this
morninc and was sunk near North
Brother island. Most of the vic
tims were women and children.
Captain Van Schaick of the Gen
eral Slocttm and five of the crew
have been arrested.
It was a spectacle of horror he
yond words to express, the great
vessel sweeping forward in the sun
light in flames, within sight of vthe
crowded city, while helpless scream
ing hundreds were roasting alive
or swallowed up in the waves,
cra.ed mothers casting babies over
board. Many of the survivors are
In a compartment in the hold of
the Slocttm, forward and just aft
of the forecastle was a room where
the lamps and oil were kept.
Prom that cabin the fire swept back
through the boat with a fierceness
that no fire-fighting apparatus
could check. In the fifteen minutes
that elapsed from the discovery of
the fire until the Gen. Sloctim was
burned to the water's edge, there
was a holocaust of the helpless.
The Slocum had been chartered
to take the excursionists to I.ocust
Grove on Long Island Sound.
There were between 1500 and 2000
persons aboard. At the extreme
eastern end of Randall's Island the
Slocum took fire, and the wood
work being seasoned, she was soon
a mass of llames. The lifc-pieser-vers
were too securely fastened to
be available and stories are tole of
frantic efforts by strong men to cut
them loose, but even if they could
have been torn down, they were
too high for the children to reach.
The race to North Brother Island
was horribly dramatic. It was made
while the flames, funned into fury
by a strong head wind, were con
suming hundreds of persons. The
after rail gave way and the pass
engers were pushed into the river.
Little children holding each other
jumped in and were so found in
I the cold clasp of death. The vessel
1 became choked with consuming
victims and hundreds fell into the
I furnace-like hold when the hurri
'caue deck caved in.
The struggle on the decks was
awful Through all the wild panic
during all that inferno, with fire
and smoke surrounding them, the
officers and men of the doomed
vessel, remained at their posts, but
they were powerless to avert the
catastrophe. For hours the bodies
of the .burned and drowned drifted
ashore. The stories of survivors
