The chase continued. Ilevolters were fired

At Elehty-sixth street it turned and came at

covered late this afternoon. It was so badly

tively, but the diibris Is piled in such shapo
that the work Is very slow and If any bodies
went down with the burning partitions and
furniture Into tho cellar it may be a wook or
ten days before they are recovered.
Friends of John J. Carter have given up hope,
that lie escaped from the building. He was a
very cool, elear-headod man and thn only
theory of his failure to get out is that ho was
suddenly overcome by tho smoke In tho hull
tvny when no one was near to help him.
It Is reported to-dny by John T. Harmes, tho
real estate agent who represented both Mil

Tho First Volunteer Engineers got here jes
terdny afternoon from Porto Bleo on the trans
port Mlnuovvkska. It was so late when tho
ship docked nt Pier 22. Brookhn, and the
wenthor was so bad that tho reception which
had boon arranged at tho Eighth Iteglment
Armory was postponed until to-morrow, and
tho parado thither from tho foot or East
Twoutv-slxth street may bo given up entirely.
Tho First Euglncers were recruited all along
llielAtlatitlo seaboard from Portland toNorfoll.
They mustered at CainpTownseud, Pceksklll,
making record time In perfecting their or
ganization. Their Colonel Is Eugeno Griffin,
Vice-President of the Goneral Eloctrlo Com
pnny, a West Point graduate and formor Cap
tain or Engtuecrs, Llout.-Col. Hodges and
many of tho other olllcers were also West
Pointers and army olllcers. Many engineers
of moro or less prominence In their profession
also joined the regiment, and this fact Is re
garded as Important In Its bearing ou tho gen
eral health and efficiency for which the regi
ment bus been highly praised. There has been
some talk ot retaining the regiment In the ser
vice, but tho matter has not been deckled,
.Nearly one-third of tho recruits came from
New' York city, where Lafayette Post, 140. O.
A. It .an. I tho Engineers' Club took a strong In
terest In tho organlzat'on. About 12S men
came from Philadelphia, 100 from Boston, SO
from Baltimore, and Washington. Norfolk,
Hcranton. Harrisburg, Bridgeport, Hartford.
New Hnvon, Troy nud many other points sup
plied their iiuotus
The leglmeut sailed henco for Porto Hlco
on thn Chester ou Aug. 5. arriving two days
after the cessation of hostilities. There tvaa
plenty of work f"r them, however, although
their only actual fighting was with a few guor
rtllas in tho mountains. In which encounter
two ot the engineers were killed. One bat
talion remained at headquarters at Ponce,
llvo eompanios went to Coamo. one company
went to Guaniea, and others wero scattered
about. A large part ot their work consisted In
repairing old masonry bridges which had been
blown uu by the retreating Spaniards or
washed out by freshets. Fort Capron. an
i earthwork mounting, at present, two Blege
mortals, was constructed about 223 feet up
tho cliff back of Guanlea. which was the first
point of landing for tho American forces.
Aqueducts and roads were repaired.
The Mlnnewaska sailed from Ponce last
Frhiav with tho major part of the regiment
and stopped at Guanlea next day for the com
pany there. The paseago up was very com
fortablo until two nights ago, when the
weather changed. At l'once the men had
been idling about la as little clothing as pos
sible and the rains were welcomed as at least
cooling. A fair supply of winter clothing had
been received just in time to be put on board
tho tianspoit before sho sailed, and this was
issued ou the trip up. so that some of the men
were comparatively well prepared for yester
day's storm .ot all. however, and a good
many stretched their legs on the wharf at
Brooklyn yesterday wearing linen suits and a
blanket or two. This was also tho costume
adopted by tomo of tho civilians on board for
thoir trip to this city.
Among the passengers on the ship wero
Lieut Clarence Wlernor of Gen. F. 1). (I rant's
staff, who has been recommended for tho post
"f American military attache, with the British
army in the Soudan ; Major Joilah Pierce, who
brought Gon. Brooke's reports on the military

Commtesary Department, Miss Mnrgnret Liv
lughtonChanlarot thn Bod Gross bociety. Fath
er W. L. l'otie. the Bev. Dr. Kent and Dr. II.
I' Barnes. The ship was met at (Juarantlne by
tho Goternment tug Governor, with Capt.
lloblnson of the Quartermaster's Department
on board. There were also Col. A. O Mills of
Lafayette Post and the Engineers' Club and
Gen Bhaler. Tvho has charge of the reception
at tho Eighth Iteglment armory. He also
w Ished to boe his nephew. Major Ira A. Shaler,
of the regiment.
At Tier 22, Atlantic avenue. Brooklyn, tho
work of unloading 'he Minnevvaskn began as
soon as sho got there at 4 1'. M. More heavy
clothing was Issued as soon as It could bo
opened, and tho men. with buttoned overcoats
and heavy gloves, mannged to keeD warm if
they worked haul. There are about 300 tons
of equipment to be unloaded and turned over
to the Quartermaster's Department lo be
tiansported to convenient army euslneei's
The health of the regiment was excellent
throughout its service A few men were sent
north on sick leave, most of whom are now
convalescent. Col Griflln was on sick leave
himself until about two weeks ago. On the
trip up about twonty-flvo men wero taken sick
and It is feared tint nine of these have typhoid.
Two ae Llouu Henry P. Walker, a son of Ad
miral Walker and Adjutant of the First Bat
talion, and Gcorgo Porrlnn of Comnany II of
this city. Llout Walker will probably go to a
hospital for treatment and Lieut. Perrlno ex
pects to go to his homo at 820 West End ave
nue. It was intended to trnnBfer the sick men
of tho regiment to Brooklyn hospitals yester
day and ambulances wore wnltlng. Owing to
ths weather and poor landing facilities the
men were not moved. They will be trans
ferred to-day to tho care of Burgeon Major
Appel, V. 8 A.
The accommodations for both slsk and well
on board tho Mlnnowaska have been highly
praised. Bomo of the olllcers browed a punch
on Wednesday night and askod the Captain
and Quartennuutor of the ship to share It.
They also presented a testimonial to tho Cap
tain and Quartermastor setting forth their ap
preciation of the treatment received on Inard.
Tho trip down to Porto I.lco on the Chester
was far less comfortable.
The men all feel the change of ollmate. nnd
manyot them had bad colds yesterday. If tho
parade lsdeeided on. It will start at i oelock to
morrow morning frnmthefootof East Twenty
sixth street It will be led by the Old Guard
Band, and w 111 Inclu ie t he Second New York Bat

tv III be read Transiiortatlon will have been or
dered In ndvnnce, and It Is expected that
ovnrv ono leaving the city can start by to-morrow
Tho men of the regiment all seem mighty
glad to be back, though their enjoyment Is
tempered slightly by tho weather. Though
they mlxsod real hot action, they glory In their
record of service nnd And hut little fault with
their handling. Lieut. -Col. Hodges was in
command of tho regiment from about two
week aftor Its arrival at l'omn until ten dajs
liuforo it left there, Pol Griflln being absent on
