MIES IP FEI1LI 1HI1TE8 BUM TlllllWlLim WIT! Firemen Unable te Fight the Flames Or Indue the Maniacs te Escape-Latest l)eUIU of the Terrible Disaster. The tongue Petate lunatic asylum, ten miles from Montreal, Canada, waa de streyedby fire en Tuesday, and about 60 of -the inmates are belleyed te have perished In the flames. The asylum was under the charge of the Sisters of Provi dence, and several of the sisters lest their lives In trying te save the patients. The asylum waa feunded In 1873, and the amount spent In organizing the Institution waa 91,131242, of which the buildings cost $700,000. The arrangements ler the pre vention and check of ilre appear te have been very defective. There were Incarcerated in Ijongue Felate 1,500 lunatics, for that asylum was a prison mere thnn a hospital, and net mero than 1,100 are accounted for. But many escaped Inte the fields and weeds, and the dead are ashes amongst ashes. What the number efthe dead is is purely a matter of conjecture and can never be ascertained, since no ether record Is kept thnn that In the asylum books, and they are also de stroyed. Ever slnce Quobeo was a province Its management of these most helpless of all creatures has been Its shame. They have been Ihrtned out te the nuns at f 100 a head per year, and the sisters' aim was te keep thorn as frugally ns possible and with the least posMble outlay for permanent works or repairs. White their most urgent bodily wants were supplied, no attempt was made at systematic medical troatment. By a curious coincidence the only Pretestant In sane asylum In the province was Inaugur ated en Tuesday by Us new superintend cut. Hlthorte patients of all denominations were crowded together,and the Protestants, by persistent personal solicitation, raised enough money te found an Institution of their own, in which their own patients are being cared for. Fer years the government has been urged te redeem Its treatment of the Insane, and Inst summer the Mether Superior, with a body guard, was sent abroad te ascertain If anything could be learned from similar Institutions in Kurope. At 5 minutes or 12 a telegraph message was reoel ved lu Montreal, say Ing the asy lu m was en tire and Imploring assistance This could net be given without first con sulting Mayer Qrenler, who was found at the Banque du Peuple, and he at onee ordered engines te be dispatched. One engine und two reels started en their lou leu mile run, and were quickly en the snot, but they might as well have remained at home, for lu flve minutes they exhausted the water supply. The only lliliiur that could save the buildimr was the St, Law nun rence river, and It was half a mite distant. The llre originated in a cupboard, and was the work of a patient. The building was constructed of brick, and was COO feet long, running back from the river half the distance. The main building eccupied tlie centre, and en inch side extended four wings, six stories in height. Te the east wero the men's wards and te the west the wemen's, milking 00 In all. In the rear were the ongine I) oil se and the laundry and the stere rooms, all of which wero saved. The flre started en the wemen's Bide, en the upper story, and. as the vonlilallen was carried en by a longitudinal shaft connected with the towers, the flames appeared blaz ing up through the reef In the centre tower. When a reporter arrived with the flro flre men. the demn of the tower had just fallen, and flames were bursting out overy where. Streams of water were brought te hear en the flames, and while they lasted seme geed was done, but that was for a very brief space, and tlien the horror of the situation was revealed. As the heat increased statues fell from nlches te the ground, Moamvhile the beds, furniture and iitenstls of overy description were being shnwored from the windows, and a stream of ili-cUd moil peured out of the eastern wing. Net a male patient was lest. Among the wemen it wns different. The less hopeless cases were placed in the lower wards, and they were removed without dllliculty, but from the upper wards, where the violent patients were secured, there caine the wildest screams as they resisted the nuns who were beseeching them te make their escape. At tbe windows it nmniae would be seen poerlng through the bars, grinning and jabbering at the bright flame that went up te the sky. As the beat became mero Intense she would graspthebars and remain thore until the tlames enveleped her. The inhabitants had ceme from all parts, attracted by the blaze, and In an hour the little village was one surging mass of vociferating peeple, recounting the strange scenes they had be held. When the flromen found they wero pew erless te save the building they tnrned their attention te the inmates, and burst In the doers with axes. Inside, Chief lteneit says, it was such a sight as no fireman ever witnessed. In eue ward that he entered were 25 patients, and at his approach they huddled together like a pack of beasts, entwining their arms Inte one mass of humanity, lie seized tbe nearest, but, said the chief: "I could no mere separate the crowd than I could parts of you rhorse." He tugged nt them until the flre darted into their garments and enfolded them llke a shroud of llaine and then he escaped with his life. In another ward three firemen were nearly trapped te death. They entered, and the deer, which had a spring lock, closed be hind them. As is customary, thore was 110 handle en the Inside. The iloer re. slsted their axes, and they rushed te the windows, but wero driven back by the flames. The chief, suspecting their peril, eentald te tLe otlier side, and the men were carried down en ladders. The engineer of the building did geed work in saving nlne p.itlents, and overy fireman made it record or which he may feel proud. On the flrst alarm the engineer turned en the hese, but it was utterly use less. us the flre leaped along the ventilating shaft te the towers and burned In a dezeu places at once. And here a melancholy event occurred. One of the tertiary nuns, 8ur Marie, lay tick In the Infirmary, en tun filth fleer, and te her rescue catne three ethers. They seised their companion and bore her in a blanket te the staircase, but they were met bv a sheet of flame and all perished. Let their names be recorded : Saurs Marie, Demerlse, Gilbert and Luinlene. None or them was ever 20 years or age, and all catne from parishes below Quebec. The sisters worked with the persistence of heroines, by turns Imploring, beseech ing and commanding the patients, and finally saving a very large number, in view of the Inadequate facilities at hand. Sister Therese, the superieress. Is broken hearted, and being at present in ill health, her name may be added te the already long list of let I ins. Doctors liourque ami Baralet were carried from the building un conscious, and whatever can be said or the management as a whole, individuals exer cised every power te lessen the calamity they neglected te avert. A loud explosion was followed by a crash of beams. The Interior was giving way. Wild faces sank from the windows and the shrieks of maniacs were lest in the general uproar. One by one the walls toppled In ward and a flercebla70linrht up Irein thu newly added fuel that rose te the dark sky and sliet Its glare evor the St. Lawrence te the southern shore, and even tinged the crest or Mount Royal, ten nines uisiam. Then it died down into blackness, and nothing but afew broken towers remained. bounding the seething mass or metal and debris, under which are new, net the bodies, but the ashes of many victims. By this time It was 0 o'clock, and grow ing dark and very cold. The spring rains l.ed converted the place Inte a quagmire, and only horsemen could get from place te place. The peer Sisters, most of them young and delicate, steed ankle deep lu uiud, securing and superintending the re moval of such furniture as had been saved. Patients waudered about aimlessly, clad In scant garments, many of them veritable Ophelias in their fantastic dress. When released many of thorn leaped for Jey, and bounded like deer across the fields te tbe weeds. Patients of both him escaped, pd, theugn oerdoa of polies wm thrown 212. arennd, net fell were Included. A sew dreed he cerae upon the Inhabi tant Iren the presence of ae many escaped lunatics, and they will count themselves fortunate if they are net visited by a aerlea of snob crimes aa only madmen can devise. The Hen. Premier Mercler baa placed the Montreal exhibition buildings at the disposal of the nuns, and the buildings will be stocked with previsions. The strangest wonder came ever the fire men that such an absence of lira-fighting facilities renld exist. Although appliances were then they were utterly. useless. The Institution bad excellent engine, ten geed pumps and new boilers, but no connection existed between the pumps and boilers. The St, Jean de Dien asylum, commonly called "Longue Pelnte," wss founded in 1873. The government, being desirous of closing the at, Jean de Bevllle asylum, re lieving the Beauport asylum at Quebec, which was overcrowded, came te aa under standing with the Sisters or Providence, with the view ofesUbllshing an asylum for Idiots and for Insane. The sisters spent In founding and erganlrlng this Institution $1,132,212, of which 1700.000 was spent en the buildings. The building was Insured by the government for $300,000. The Sisterhood or Providence, who owned the building and under whose management the institution has always been, Is the lsrgest or the many large Canadian religious communities, although only established fifty years age. Its founder waa Madame Oaineiln, the widow of a wealthy Montreal merchant, who endowed the new sisterhood. Unlversal sympathy is felt for Sister Tberese, the energetic Lady Superior or Longue Point asylum. This lady's family name Is Tetu, and she belongs te" the Quebec district. She was seriously HI during the winter with Inflam mation of the lungs and it was feared for seme time that she was dying. During the last month she was slowly recovering, but Is still in a very weak state or health. Sister Tlioreso's two principal assistants In the management or the asylum were Sisters Charles and Madeleine, the former a sister of Dr. Geulet, or Jellette, and the 1 itter a sister or Dr. Des Jardines, or St. Janvier. With thn exception of the medical depart ment consisting ordeotors, the Sisters re tained complete control or all the depart ments of t'te asylum, even the dispensing of necessary medicines being done by trained Sisters. The staff was compesodas fellows : Sisters, 72 1 lay, 92. Total, 101, or whom three were In the office, two In the parlor and the ethers in the wards, kitchen and working departments watching ever the patients; lay keepers (female), 14; keepers, 28 ; night guardians (male), four; night guardians (female), two. Besides these, two female keepers and four Sisters and lay Sisters en an avorage kept watch each rilgbt. It Is feared that seven Teftlaran nuns have been burned te death, as three mero are missing.

Marshall, McCem sey, McElligett, MeKlllips, McMullen, Pentz, Itathfen, Raub, Rellly, Reynolds, Reland, Shirk, Stauller, Warfel, White, Wlckershem, Winower, Wohlsen, Weir and Dr. McCormick, president or the beard. . Mr. Cochran called the couvention te erder, and Dr. Wickersliam was elected president and Thes. F. McElligett secre tary or the convention. Mr. Cochran moved te proceed te the election or a superintendent, and the mo tion was adopted. Mr. Marshall nominated Prof. R. K. Buebrle, and the nominations wero closed en motion of Mr. Reynolds. The secretary called the roll and Prof. Buebrle recelved the voles of all the mem bers present except Messrs. Brinten, Rellly and Dr. McCormick, who declined te vote. The fixing of the salary was next In order. Mr. Stautfer moved that the salary be fixed at $2,000. He fixed that figure as a sonseef duly towards a geed and faithful servant and with that amount he did net think the tax-payers would be dissatisfied. Mr. Marshall seconded the motion. Mr. Cochran moved te aniend by making the salary $1,800, which he believed was a fair compensation. Dr. McCormick moved te amend the movement by leaving the salary at tbe same figure as new paid, $1,500. He offered the amendment because he did net think the financial condition of the beard war ranted the increase Mr. Brown, In an nrgument In favor of making the salary $1,800, said tbe salaries of the high school teachers since 1880, when Prof. Buehrle came here, had been in creased from 17 te 29 per cent, and in the ether schools the avorage Incroase was 21 per cent. During all the time Prof. Buehrle has been here his salary has net been Increased. Since lftSO the salaries or city superintendents throughout the state had been Increased and he instanced Allegheny City, from $1,800 te $2,200; Allentown, from $800 te $1,500; Alteena, from $1,000 te $1,200; Harrisburg, from $1,300 te $1,800; Pottsville, from $1,000 te $1,700, and Reading, from $1,200 te $2,000. The proposed lncioase from $1,500 te $1,600 was a lower percentage than any or the abeve named places. Anether reason why there should be an increased salary was that increased duties had been put ou the superintendent slnce the adoption or the free book system. The amendment te make the salary $1, 600 was defeated by the following vete: Kfj.MHwa T1a1av.Ii, T.a.lnt.1., Iti nan.. !...- stetter, Judith, Llchtv, Llppeld, McCom McCem sey, McKilllps, Pentz, ilauu, Rellly, White and McCormick 14, voted aye.

Much Interest had been aroused, and the delight of the andlonce, from the solemn notes of the Latin hymn te the last strains of that beautiful glee, "Geed Night, Beloved," proved hew fully these expectations were realized. The musi cal criterion or our inland city has ever been high and hence the ovation that awaited the clubs Is tlntr highest praise.
