fceacly Built Apartment House
Blorvn Dozcn? Trces Uprooted.
As a result of a thuoderstorm which reacfaed
cyclonlo proportions ln the upper part of Man
battan yesterday a stx story apartment house
ln course of constructjon collapsed, killing <me
man and sericusly lnjuring many others.
The storm broke at 1:31 p. m. with a sharp
erack of thunder, preceded by flashes of Hght
nlng whlcb seemed dangerously close to the
roofs of the hlgh bulldings. Shortly before the
flrst peal of thunder a Iiot smothering gale
blew from the northwest, sending through the
Etreeta great swirling clouds of dust. Trees
elong the main streets swayed and lashed them
eelves against the houses. In the dlrect path of
the gale many snapped in two.
In 125th-st. the etorm's effect was particu
larly severe. A great sheet of water flooded the
Street from curb to curb. Chimneys were blown
cff by the dozen, plate glass wlndows were
blown out and fragments strewn along the
pavement at every block. The wlndows of the
second floor of the Hamilton Bullding. at 123th
?L and Park-ave., were sent crashing to the
gldewalk, and the papers and books of the Legal
Ald Scciety's Harlem brancb, which occupies
the floor, were scattered in the flooded street
The Btorm, after venting its cxtraordinary
fury, stopped as suddenly as it began. It lasted
orily fifteen minutes.
The wrecked ttpartment house was in 136th
St., between Riverslde Drive and Broadway.
John Lawior, of No. 4115 East 77th-et., fore
man of the brickwork. died before he could be
extricated from the ruins. He was pinned
under a mass of debris. but rescuers found him
with his heaed free, though his body and legs
were covered. The Rev. Dr. Barrington, of the
Church of the Annunclation. was called and
gave him the last rites of the Roman Catholic
Church before he died. In spite of the terrible
crushing Lawlor's body received, his watch was
ticking steadily when taken from his pocket.
Abraham Pearlman, of No. 18 Morningside
?.ve.. of the firm of Pearlman & Brown, buildera
of the house, and Abraham Bordock, superin
tendent of the construction. were arrested last
night. and taken to the West 47th-st. station.
About twenty-flve men were at work on the
building. and only a few escaped without in

carrying away both walls of the first in the
row of buildings, it left the fourth floor of the
next building hanging without any support on
one slde. The wind contlnued to blow half a
gale, and the flremen and poliee were in mo
inentary danger of being buried under the tot
terlng floor, which hung above their heads.
The collapsed building was one of slx brfck
and limestone apartment housc-s, being built. The
ether flve were up to thelr fiftn stories, but this
was only up to the third. The general contrac
tcrs are Pearlman & Brown, of No. 91 Magin-st.;
the brick contractor is Rob^rt Smith. and the
contractor on the framcwork Adoipb Hansen.
The poliee say that the outer wali, which the
?torm etruck flrst, was not fully braced, owing
to the incompleted stage of the construction.
Workmen were all over the building when the
?torm began. They pa!d little attention to
it at first, not tfelnkinjc the great yellow .in<i

afloat, and tho eteam yacht Norman, belonglng
to Frank H. Tilford. bad a collislon yesterday
afternoon off Stepping Stone Llght, Dong Island

bad to go into drydock for repairs.
The Tarantula left the New York Yacht Club"s

Off Stepplng Stone Light the two boats drew
together. the Tarantula on the Long Island shore
slde. The Tarantula put on an extra head of
steam and tried to dart in ahead of the Norman,
but at that moment something went wrong with
her steering gear and she swung over to port.
Her boweprtt hit the Norman just below the
decking amidships, smashing a long hole in the
Bide, tearing away decking and rails and smash?
ing a launch.
The force of the collislon threw the bowsprit
of the Norman around to starboard just as the
Tarantula had backed out of the wreekage and
forged ahead again. The Norman's nose hit the
port bow of the turbine yacht. tearing an ugly
hole a few inches above the water line, carry
ing away a small boat, which was smashed into
flrewood, and tearing off a long piece of the rail.
There was a quick exchange of explanation from
the two boats, an inquiry as ;o the necessity of
help. and it was found that both could manage
under full steam to get to a landing place safely.
The Tarantula forged with all speed to Jacob's
Bhipyards. at City Island. and put into drydock
The Norman went down the river for the New
York Yaoht Club's landing, off 23d-st., where
Mr Tilford took his guests ashore. The yacht

Suffera from Effecta of Chill Caught
on Journey from Washington.
Newbury, N. H? 7une 26.?The condition of
John Hay. Secretary of State. who is conflned to
his bed at his summer home, near Lake Sunapee,
by an attack of uresmia, was regarded as favor
able to-nlght by his physicians. After a few
days of rest it is expected the Secretary will be
able to leave his room. Dr. Charies L. Scudder,
of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston,
who came here with Dr. Fred T. Murphy, of
Boston, Sunday night on a speeial train in re
eponse to a message from the Secretary's family,
remalned in the village to-night, but Dr. Murphy
returned home. A nurse from Boston arrived
here at 8:30 o'clock this evening.
Dr. J. L. Cain, of Newport, N. H., who was
called to the Hay home before the arrival of the
Boston physicians, is with Dr. Scudder. Both
doctors are of the opinion that Mr. Hay will have
no difflculty In overcoming the effects of the
present attack, An operation was considered at
one tlme by Dr. Cain, but the three physicians,
after a careful examination and a consultation,
decided that lt would not be necessary. The
attack was due to a chill caught on the journey
from Washington, and is simiiar to one Mr. Hay
had four years ago.
The Secretary passed a comfortable afternoon
and evening, and his family considered that
there is no need of further anxiety. Secretary
Hay arrived at his summer home on Saturday
The day possed withot a recurrence of bad
symptoms, and this evening Clarence Hay said:
It has been a very comfortable day. There
seems to be no need of further anxiety.
Secretary Hay began to be in pain early yes?
terday, and applled remedies which have given
relief on other oceaslons. These failed to help
him, and Dr. Cain was called from NewDort.
He found that in ehanging from the climate of
Washington to the eooler temperature of the
Lake Sunapea region the Secretary had taken
a severe celd and that organs weakened by pre
vious attacks had been seriously afrected. Upon
lerning this, it was Mrs. Hay's desire that spe
cialists should be summoned at onee, and as
soon as posslble Dr. Scudder and Dr. Murphy
were on the way here by speeial train from
The Boeton and Maine Railroad cleared its
tracks from Boston to Concord. N. H., and the
speeial mada fast tlme between those two cities.
The train proceeded to Newbury by the Con?
cord and Claremont branch. A launeh was in
waiting to convcy the surgeons across Lake
Sunapee, and the doctors reaehed the bedside
of the Secretary about mldnight. A quick but
complete examination of the patient was made,
and it was seen that his condition, whlle ex
ceedingly painful, was not specially serious.
Under treatment the patient soon showed im
provement, and the necesslty of an operation,
which had been discussed. was averted. In the
latter part of the night Secretary Hay grew
steadily better and by morning had regained
tbe strength which was exhausted by hours of
Incessant pain. On account of the organs
affected by the cold, however, the physicians
ruled that the Secretary should remain in bed
for a day or two.
Dr. Cain said to-day that the members of Mr.
Hay's family were greatly alarnird because the
usual remedies failed to give reftef.
This morning Dr. Scudder gave out the fol
lowlng bulletin with refcrence to Secretary
Hay's illness:
Mr. Hay is suffering from the efi'ects of a chill
caught on the journey from Washington. Tho
attack is simiiar to one whVh he had four years
ago. This morning Mr. Hay ls restlng com
fortably and expects to be about in a few days.
No further bulletins will be Issued.

Doublc Tragedy Near the Mill
Rivcr, Stamford.
Stamford, Conn., June 26.?Herbert Birdsall,
aged eighteen, accidentally shot and killed a
companion, Edward Rush, son of Edward Rush,
of Pelham Manor, N. Y.. this afternoon, and in
his fright he ran into the woods, and was later
found dead. He had killed himself with the
sam'e weapon.
The boys had been on the bank of Mill Rlver.
in the northern part of the town, and Birdsall
had been using the revolver, which was of .22
calibre, in shooting at birds. Rush wanted to
handle the weapon, and while Birdsall was
showlng him how the cartridges were dis
charged Rush stooped down and looked into
tha weapon, and the bul'et went through his
head, killing him instantly. Birdsall told an
other companion not to say anything. and then
he ran into the woods. The companion gave the
alarm, and after the body had been taken to
an undertaker'o several men went in search of
Birdsall. They found him sitting, apparently
asleep, at the foot of a tree, but when they
touched him they found he had shot and killed
himself, the bulM having gone through his
Rush was seventeen years old, and was a son
of Edward Rush, of the theatrical firm of Weber
& Rush, X?. 1,402 Broadway, New-York. He
had been at Charles Spencer's sanatorium, in
North-st., for eighteen months, receiving treat
ment for a forrn of epilepsy. He had practically
recovered and his father had planncd to send
him to a ranch in the West in the near future.
Birdsall is a son of John Birdsall, a laborer.
He has been an Inveterate smoker of cigar
ettes, and after being censured for the habit
on Saturday by his father he ran away from
home. It would seem from a statement by his
mother that he was in bad mental condition
from the use of cigarettes.
Mrs. Rush was prostrated at her home, in
Lioring-avc, Pelham Heigbts. by tho shock
caused by the death of her son. Her husband
went home for the purpose of going to Stam?
ford, but owfng to his wife's condition he will
not go there until to-dny.

Sonth Dakota Sicept by Terrific
Death-Dealing Storm.
Sioux City, Iowa. June 26.?Eleven persons ar?
reported to have been killed by a tornado in
Central South Dakota early yesterday morning.
Details are exceedingly difficult to obtain owing
to the wrecking of telephone and telegraph wires
throughout the affected distrlct. Efforts to get
into communicatlon with Plankington and Ar
tesian, the largest towns in the storm's course,
have proved futile. Train crews passing through
the Territory bring the only information. They
say that at Plankington three were killed and
several injured, while flve were said to have
been killed in the country near there.
The known dead are: Walter J. Johns, Mrs.
Walter J. Johns, infant son of W. J. Johns. The
Johnss residence was at the outskirts of Plank?
ington. It was demolished. and the three were
crushed instantly.
At Artesian three are known to have lost
their lives, and it is feared many more dead
may be found in the storm's path over the
eighty miles intervening between the two towns.
The name of but one of the three dead at Ar?
tesian is known, the victim being H. E. Martin,
a section hand.

This afternoon several friends and relatives j
gathered at the home of Mrs. Petzold, the !
mother of the bandmaster's wife, to give them a
farewell receptlon. Both Mr. and Mrs. Eichen- j
rodt appeared to enjoy the festivities, but grew j
morose when their friends left.

The Peasants in Revolt.
Warsaw, June 26.?Disorderly crowds have
thronged the streets since early this morning.
They have erected barricades at Ogrodowa,
Krochmalma and Wronie sts., on top of which
they placed red flags. The police an<l MMhn
stormed these barricades. and ten persons were
wounded by bullets or bayonets.
Another affray took place at Zelazna-st..

preceded last night by attempts at red flag

thirty-four battalions of infantry on duty here.
The crack of a rifle was occasionally heard thia
