For Forty-Eight Hours Pas?en - gets and the Crew Battle for the Mastery. NEARLY A PANIC IN STEERAGE. Lifeboats Put In Readiness and Valuables Gathered W tor Flight. Ths forty-four cabin and 221 steerage I paasenejers on the steamship Gellert, of the Hamburg-American line. That nr- WL rived to-day, had a thrilling experience 'i -with a fire at sea, the Memory of which will remain vivid as long- as they live. I The Ge-llert left Hamburg Oct. 16 with ! I her passengers and a miscellaneous car- jjH go of merchandise. She had variable ; Mr winds hi) the way across, but did not : T encounter any particularly bad weather. fl This was a pleasant disappointment to jSf the passengers and crew, who had an- ttclpatts with some; misgivings contact & with one or more of the cyclones which p; ( had hn reported on the other Bide jjf about the time of their departure as then EJV cavorting over the Atlantic. f Nr A PAPT. C. KAEMPFF. The trouble the pnsengers had an ticipated, however, came In another and more fearful guise. It was Just at midnight on the sixth day out that rapt. KaomplT, who was on the bridge, was app. tached by a White faced asel trembling member of the crew, who Informed him In a whisper that the ship was on lire. Capt. Kaempff 1 m u if 1 lately called all the members of the crew on deck. He notified the steward and his assistants to arouse the pOMMlgera, who had re I tired, but to go almut it coolly, so as cot to create a panic. The cabin passengers behaved admi rably, but those In the steerage, who had Already scented smoke and divined that , the ship was on lire, were harder to i manage. They tumbled over one an other In their great uaSLS to get on deck and near the life-rafts. The rlre was located in the after part of the ship. Its presence was only dis covered when one of t. crew happened to see smoke escaping from the ven tilators that supply air to the steerage. Capt. Kaempff ordered these ventila . tors to he plugged up and ull other 7 hatched and doors which might supply a draught for the Dames to be closed. Then he went about among the paasen gei h and personally assured them that the danger was not so great as It icemed; that If they remained cool and calm the efforts that were making for their safety would not be retarded. To further qulcl them Lie lifeboats were put In readiness for Instant ser vice, Some of the crew stood by the boati to prevent a rush or crowding, If it should be necessary to lower them The rest of the Bailors and all the offl cere, except the one stationed on the bridge to navigate the ship, organised themselves Into a Are brigade an 1 ma le ready to flood the after hold. After the first sear- most -f the cabin passengers returned to their state) iomi and gathered up their valuables. Then R"lh they returned t the deck an I peeri i waa cut over the rails Into the darkness for Thr a light. They were quiet and undeinuii- and. etrative. but fully appreciated their dan I the' yer. Any light that would have lndl- L W? cated tne nearness of a vessel would L n! have afforded them great relief. But a. their search was in vain. I Before the extent of the flro and Its exact location had been dlacovei i. Pw smoke began to find Its way to the dei k through the engine-room, Cap) Kaempff decided tu atop the suflnei ao that the draught that waa avldently supplied through that part of the ship could also be . . ui out Through varloua crevices the smoke (Cbahgd on uth ytayc. ) POINT FOR BANK OFFICERS. Temporary Rsceiverihip Ex tended Thirty Days. K iwyrr I'nterroyer Wanted Madison Square's AfUIrs Settled. Deputy Attorneys-Generals William J. Lardnar and John W. Hogan came down ' ' from Albajiy to-day and applied to Jub tleo Barratt In the Supreme Court, Chambers, for an order making Miles M. O'Brien and F. O. Cannon perma nent receivers of the Madlsuii Square Bank to wind up Its affairs. This was virtually asking for the; Immediate dissolution of the corpora tion, which won M put an end at once to the efforts of the stockholders to make up the Impairment of the capital and put the bank on Its feet again. It lavas stated by the officers of the State 1 thaL tdey were entitled to the order because the time of the defendant for answering had expired, and no reaaon had been shown why the temporary receiver.-, sh'iuid not ba made permanent nnd a Anal Judgment of dissolution rendered. Lawyer Edward l.auterbach, who ap peared for the directors and HtOCK holdera of the bank, at once objected to the proposed order. Me suRgesteu that It would be for the Interest of depos itors hs well as stockholders If the bank should he rehabilitated. He urged the Court to grant an extension 01 thirty days to the temporary receivers, at the same time conferring upon them the powers of permanent receiver.', which tan ba done under the provisions of the Code. He said the stockholders had for some time been on the verge of rem ganlzatlon He had no doubt that within the time sped Med the capital could be raised to put the banK upon Its feet again. His suggestion was not made for dila tory purposes, he said, but for the beat Interests of all parties. He pleaded for time In which those Intereste 1 In the re organization of the hank might be able to carry through their project. Mr. Ontermyer, representing the re ceivers, was In favor of Immediate and final judgment. He said they were anxious to wind up their trust as soon as possible. He did not see that the stockholders would be in any better po sition a year hence than they were at the present time. Mr. Lardner favored Mr. Lauterbach's suggestion provided there would be no anbarraaament to the receivers. When Mr. Lauterbach said he was willing to concede to them all the powers of per manent receivers to go on and liquidate the affairs of the hank and pay divi dends, provided final judgment was not entered, Justice Barrett signed an order to that effect. It waa the understanding that If no reorganization had been effected within the thirty days final Judgment should he rendered. At the meeting of the stockholders held In Mr. Lauterbach's office last evening a new committee was appointed to reorganize the bank. Mr. Vntermyer said to-day that the books of the bank would be delivered to Assistant District - Attorney Davis this afternoon for a further Investiga tion of the methods of the late officers. He declined to state whether more ar rests were contemplated. CZAREW1TCH AND THE FRENCH. 1. Judet Dare Not Tell All the Rue nian Prince Said. PAR18, Oct 27. M.

Serious Fea-n for Capt. Nauaen's Arctic Expedition. LONDON, Oct. 27. The Pall Mall Ga zette publishes to-day under the caption. "Has the Frani Gone Down?" a story regarding Capt. Nauser.'s Arctic explora tion vessel. The story Is given on the authority of a Norwegian traveller, who was Inform ed by a number of Samoteds, a nomadic people, Inhabiting the shores of the Arc tic Ocean from the mouth of the Petchora River to the Gulf of Khat angskee, that they had sighted the Fram frequently in the Kara Sea. She worked heavily and awkwardly In the Ice for three days and made no progress. Russians believe that if the Fram was nt that time referred to drifting In the Kara Se she must have tie. -n compelled to return to avoid be ing crushed in the ice. The Qasette remarks that if this course had been decided upon, news of the vessel must have bet n heard ere this. The question now Is whether the Fram reached New Siberia or sank. AFTER W.C. ANDREWS.

CUT HIS OWN THROAT. Edward Hammond'. Suicide at His Home in Bayonne, N. J. He Was the Trusted Cashier of Sweetser. Pembrook & Co. Ilia Acconnta Bald to Be Straight He Had Keen ill. Edward Hammond, who for ovsr acvn ymra has been a trusted employee of the blR wholesale dry -(roods firm of Bweetaer, Pembrook A Co., Brcwdway 1 and White street committed aulclde at his home, 10 East Forty-third street, Bayonne. N. .T., early this morning. 1 While an the members or his family were In bed asleep he arose and pro I cured a razor. Opening the weapon he drew the Made serosa his throat, almost severing the head. Death was Install- 1 taneous. Hammond lived With his mother, brothers nnd Blater in Hayontie. He was a innn of steady hahlts and of mild temperament. He whs about thirty-one yeara old nnd unmarried. He returned home three tlays ago com plaining of feeling 111 His head ached, he said, but hoped to be better by morn ing. Instead of that proving the case, however, he seemed to grow worse. This had a depressing effect upon him. Ha became melancholy and would reply to questions addressed to him In a surly manner. Thl3 was so unusual that his mother advised him to see a physician. but he refused to do so. He attended to business a usual, how ever, but on each evening lie returned home with the same story of feeling III. There seemed to lie a change yesterday, as the other clerks In the hlg dry goods office with him thought he was unusually lively. He said good by In n happy manner when leaving for the dny, anil on arriv ing home h erected his mother. brothers and siters affectionately. He retired to bed early. It was about 2.46 o'clock this morn ing When his mother heard a noise In her son's room. Getting out of bed. she started to investigate Receiving no answer to repented knocking nt the donr, she entered and came across the body, whth was still warm. Her cries aroused the other fnmatep of the house. Soon messengers were sent hurrying in every direction for a physician. They were too late, however, to be of any service, for Hammond was dead. News of the suicide was telegraphed to Sweetser, Pembrook & Co Immedl ately nfter the store opened. It proved a big shock to the members of the Arm as well as the employees They could not understand it. Naturally the first impulse was to examine the accounts of the dead cash ier. They were hastily gone over. Noth ing whaever in the way of a shortage or the auggeatlon of a shortage waa found. To an "Evening World" reporter later In the day Mr. J. S Sweetser said that h could not account for the suicide of his cashier in anv way. "Why," he ..nd. "he was apparently In the very lest ot spirits when he left here yesterday afternoon. I noticed 11 rihing wrong abo.ir him then, nnd he Inult-M healthy enough. "The Arm had every confidence in him. and quite a long time ago he became cashier. His accounts are nil straight, 30 far as we can find out. In fact, we know they are, an 1 we have no reason to think otherwise."
