tho following sensational statement at a

"I will not rest until I havo shown up
Dr. Broughton in his true light. I havo

from tho smoldering ruins of tho Frc
clonia Station ?Normal and Training
School, at Dunkirk, X. Y., which was
destroyed hy lire at ? o'clock last Friday
morning, ono charred body has been re

persons perished in tho lire, which also
entailed a property loss of $200,000.
There wero 75 young women students
in tho building, of whom six perished.
Tho other victim was tho aged janitor.
Tho young women occupied rooms on
tho third floor of tho building. Tho ori
gin of the fli'0 is unknown.
The lire started bl the privato room of
Janitor Morris, who evidently lost his
lifo while lire lighting. One of tho young
ladies was at the hoad of tho lire escape
uid turned back into tho burning build
ing to save a diamond ring, thus losing
her lifo. The others who perished suf
focated without locating the fire escapes.
lt is stated that heavy wiro screens were
firmly nailed across tho windows leading
to the lire escapes and the only way tho
lucky ones escaped was by crawling
through windows adjacent to tho escapes
and then creeping along the gutter of
the mansard roof. Lawyers say there
