Tha iraportanco of fleeting the proper man to succeed Sailor E&zrer has not thus fat attracted much attention. There is no lucfc of candidaUa. rublic sentiment in the State, to far nesprcs-ed, pecms to be very much eliviileJ, with no indications Blowing that any one has the inside track. Senator Harvey is acknowledged to have fairly and honorably represented the State. He is considered a safe man, and there is a fair prospect of his becoming ilia own eticcessor. Col. rinrab shows considerable strength in the Southwest. He is acknowledged to be a man of ability. If he succeeds it must lie through the efforts of his friend', as he is no compromise candidate. Judge Sears is developing more strength than it was supposed he had. He is cred ited with being smart, , and having the aid of the railroad interests. Gov. Oiborn, undoubtedly, has more strength than any of the other candidates. He has used his position as Governor to help himself, and has improved his time to the best advantage. It is generally conceded, liowever, that his vote, like that of three years ago, will be greater on the first ballot than afterwards. The fact that while our Union soldiers were fighting for a govern ment Oiborn, u U.S. Marsha!, appropria ted the confiscation funds of the United States to his own personal ne the fact that the highest court in the land has decreed him guilty, and ordered him to re fund the amount seems to be a crime of such a gross character as to forbid his elec tion. Ikaides his intemperate habits unfit him for the place. Col. Phillips ii ppolten of by his many warm admirers. He is considered a sound Kepublican, and his views upon the cur rency question make him popular. Judge Stillings seems to be the favorite with many. The Judge is a man of brains, a sound lawyer, and one who would do credit to the State. Gov. liobinson, one of the old-tried men of Kansas, has a few men urging him as the bist man for the position. His selec tion Voald be a credit to the State. Col. Carpenter is spoken of in compli mentary terms, as a gentleman well quali fied. Ben. Simpson is regarded as an able man. Hon. W. L. Simons looms up with a number of votes, and is regarded as a good tnnn. Judge Horton has many friends. Judge Lowe is mentioned. Col. Cobb will be around. Judge Muse has his friends; and there are many others too numerous to mention. I'tymb, Sears and Oiborn, are generally rpoken of as positive candidate?, while Harvey, Stillings, Phillips, Simons and others are spoken of as the most probable compromise candidates. KAUNAS NEV&TOR. .SfK-ak Out, Gentlemen. Editor Times: Several gentlemen are asking the votes of the Kansas Legislature for United States Senator, and some man must be elected this winter to that position. "Who that man shall be is a question that should be seriously considered by everv member of the Kansas Legislature. First, it will be conceded that the man chosen must be a Republican ; but this must not be the only quality required in our next Senator. "We have a great many Republicans in Kansas who are fit to rep resent the Stale in the United States Senate. Vt'e must have a man whose habits are above question. Kb representative of Kan-, sas must be found reeling as a drunken man through the streets of our national capital. A man who cannot control his appetite and who in public position gets intoxicated must not be sent to the United States Senate. Oar present Governor is charged with in toxication. It is charced that, at the Cen tennial, he disgraced himself and disgraced Kansas. If true, he should withdraw from the canvar and from politics. Our present Senators must see the im iwrtance of standing with the people against the money kings. AVe certain ly do not want a man who publicly declares that he has no sympathy with the debtor claw, and who regards ttbe man who holds the plow as no better than the or thatdraws it." "We have had too much legislation for the benefit of captital too little for labor. Our national legislation has been too much in the interest of the great money power, and too little in the in terest of the producing classes. If this country is to build up and prosper, we must build up, protect and develop the pro ductive industries of the country, capital can talc care of itself. We must have a Foreign policy that will get a balance of trade in our favor. The fanner that buys more than he produces and sslls, is getting poorer all the time. What is true of the family is tree of the Nation. If we buy more as a Nation and as a jieople, and our country is drained of its gold and silver to meet this balance of trade, wc must get poorer all the time. But change the policy. Get a balance of trade in our favor. Let us sell Sl!00,000,000 a year more than we bnv, and in five years we will accumulate Sl'.OOO.OOO.OOO, a sum almost double the entire money in circula tion in the United States to-day. Our For eign debt should be brought home and the interest be paid our own people and kept in the country. We mutt have a lower rate of national interest. To do this, we must abolish the whole national banking system, and retire the bank circulation, and issue greenbacks. This would savevS20,000,000 a year in in terest to the Government, and would se cure a lower rate of interest to the people. The increase of National wealth is only about 4 per cent. Any rate of interest greater than the increase of National wealth, is eating up the people and the country. We must have some legislation for the people. Now, gentlemen, T. a Sears, P. B. Plumb, W. L. Simone, B. F. Simpson, D. It. An thony, Stillings, Cobb, Guthrie, and all the rest of you, step to the front, and let cs know where you stand, and what you are for. Col. Plumb is president of a National Bank. If he goes to the Senate, will he vote to wipe out the National Bank, and substitute the people's money, "Green backs?" "Will he be for the people or for the monopolies ? And now Mr. Sears, step out, and let us know how you are on this question, and, if elected, will you represent the people, or the railroads? If the rail roads want an agent in Washington, they are able to hire one. If we elect you, are you going to represent Kansas or the rail roads? Now. Simons and SimDson. sten to the front, and let us know how you feel, and how you will act if elected. Let Harvey explain his position on the financial ques tion. Let Oaborn not only explain his position on this question, bat answer the charges against his personal habits while at the Centennial. If there are any other as pirants, let them speak out; we want no equivocation. Now, one word to the members of the Leg islature: The question of where a man lives, amounts to nothing. Give cs a man that will work for the people. See to it, that no man goes to "Washington simply to represent corporations and money loaners. Elect not only a man to represent our pro ductive industries in the United States Sen ate, but goto work and reduce our ex penses as a State, and in the counties, towns, cities and school districts, and thuVrelieve us of some of tha burdens that are drmr. us to bankruptcy and ruin. I write this not as a Ioke.nct to injure anyone, or to build op any one noun, but to raise some questions that should be dis cussed by all of our papers, and people. Three members of Congress hare jntt been elected as greenback men. Republicans everywhere in Kansas, last fall, professed to be greenback men. The Presidential (lection is over, and we have a right to know just where our aspirants stand on this gieat money question. If they will not ". d& f'ng to carry water on both shoulders; if Oiey trying to de ceive the people, they are nnworthy of sup port. As an individual, I do hope we shall hear from the press, and the candidates, on (his question. Yours, etc, ' . AEbpcbucas. ggsassens Emm, December 12, 187& lOlBILII WM Full Account of tho Great Loss of Life. A TEBEIBLZ nOIOCACST. New Yobk, December C The firo in the Brooklyn Theatre last night was at tended by an appalling loss of life, and it i thou-ht that not less than one hundred rersonsVcre killed in the ruih for egrcs., or burned to death, being unable to escape. TIIE riKE CHOKE OCT during the performance of the last scene of the "Two Orphans," in which Kate Clax ton, who plavs the heroine, is on the boat house Iloor. "in five rninutxs more the au dience would have been dismissed, and there would hae been nothing more seri ous than the destruction of the property. The house was about two-thirds filled, those below sitting well forward towaid the stage. Forthoe in thiffamily circle, dress circle and galleries there was noway of escape except by the "Washington street entrance. The panic-stricken ieopIe rushed pell-mell toward the doors and down the stairway. The main exit became immediately choked up and a SCENE 07 TEEBOE, confusion and distress ensued which beg gars description. Just above the landing place of the Btairway a woman, in the crush, had her foot pushed between the bannister and fell. The crowd behind, forced forward by the terrified people still further behind, fell over her and piled on top of each other four and five deep. The police from the station house next door were promptly at the scene, but owing to the manner in which the people were piled on tap of each other and massed together, they could extricate but comparatively few, and there they were all bruised, bleeding and maimed. AFTER THE FIKX. The firemen got to work on the ruins shortly after daylight. They succeeded in getting as far as the dress-circle, when they found a great number of bodies, and imme diately began the work of rtmoval, and up to 1 o'clock: EIXrr-EIVE BODIES had been recovered, and what appeared to be 20 or SO more, were seen in the basement, into which they had been precipitated by the falling of the burning floors. At the police station, adjoining the burned thea tre, the names ol SC persons, mis-ing from their homes, have been registered. Kate Claxton, in answer to to the preliminary inquiry of the Fire Marshil.said that "at the beginning of the last act, just as the curtain went up,I heard a rumbling noise on the stage, and a minute atter I saw ilamcs. The "fire teemed to be all on the stage. Mrs. Farrcn, myself, Mr. Studley and Mr. Murdock were on the stage at this time. We four remained there and endeavored, as best we could, to quiet the audience and prevent a panic Said I to the people, 'be quiet ; we are between you and the fire, the front door is open and the passages are clear.' Not one of the audience jumted on the stage. The flames were then coming down on us. I ran out and jumped over several people. Mr. H.S. Murdock, after endeavoring to calm the fears of the panic stricken people, went to bid dr jsing room to get his clothing, and mu?t have been suffocated." The work of identifying the dead will be difficult, for most of them arc BURXED BEYOND EECOCXITIOX. The only mode of identifying them will be by the personal projwrty found attached to the bodies. Tnus far it is evident that the flames made common havoc with men, women and children. Shortly before 9 o'clock, Rev. Father Hanly visited the theatre, and among the bodies recognized that of the brother of Rev. Father Hylie. Father Hylie was present, and identified the body of his brother. A body was taken from the ruins, charred and blackened be yond recognition, in the breast pocket of whose coat were a number of cards bearing the name of Abraham Barn alt, in German text. The bodies are constant If being re moved from the ruins, and are being taken to the morgue as fast as possible. . LiTIE. It is rumored that a numter of the at taches of the theatre were burned. It seem) certain that Charles J.att ana ins son, who were ttationcd in the upper gal lerv. are anions the lost. The actors and actresses escaped from the stage into John son street. J. W. Thorpe, ttage manager, states that THE FIRE OCCURRED in this wiss: A drop was ignited from a border light by some means inexplicable, as one was. guarded from the other. He immediately directed the stage carpenter, "Weaver, and two supernumeraries to en deavor to extinguish the flames, but the difficulty was to reach the part on fire. The stage carpenter, with the supernumera ries assayed to effect the object by lowering the drop, and in so doing added fuel to the flames. The sczne at the last of the play em braced a ceiled apartment, and the instant the burning drop came in contact with the inflammable ceiling, it served to spread the flames. in A rLAsn, as though powder had previously been scat tered about the s-encry, the entire proper tics were in a blaze. Hie usual avenues of escape were thin summarily closed at the rear, and an exit, ll at all possible, had to be made by way of the box entrance. All, except pcrlups one or two, thus efeaped. It is now believed that TIIE XUMBEIt OF DEAR will be about 123. Wagon loads of rough boxes arc arriving in front of the theatre and the corpses are placed in them and covered with tarpaulin and then carried to the morgue. The scene grows more terrible every minute. Men and women are crowding arouml the station house and theatre entrance, makirg inquiries for missing friends. In some in stances WHOLE FAMILIES HAVE rCIUSIIID. The bodies present every form of con tortion, just as they stiffened in that last agony, when the floor gave way and they were plunged down in the blinding smoke and flames. Arms and legs are bent and twisted in every way ; hands are clinched and reached out as if grasping for help. HORRIBLE DISCOVERT. The evening '"Post" says that at about 11 o'clock a horrible discovery was made in the middle of what was formerly the lobby of the theatre There lay an immense pile of rubbish and smouldering beams, and fragments of girders and other things. This heap was nearly opposite the entrance to the auditory of the theatre, and beyond it was another heap, marking the place where the stairs, which led to the gallery, fell under the heap first mentioned, HIRE A DEAD BODY was found, and the firemen dilirent'r per sisted in their search in this direction. With much labor some of the heaviest tim ber was removed, and a horrible sight was revealed. Beneath a mound of corpses lay in rows, heaped one upon the other, and packed together with fearful solidity, which told of the great pressure to which they had been subjected, How many lay there, what 4heir sex or age was, no man could ten, ana at noon only guesses could be made. Another actor, Claude Burroughs, is now reported missing. Thus far, but three corpses have been iden tified, being those of Hugh J. Davis and Michael Keller, of 117 Tillary. and John Woods, of 101 Fleet Place. XIXETT-FOUE DEAD. The Brooklyn "Argus" states that up to one o'clock p. m. ninety-four bodies had been taken from the ruias, and others were still risible, lying in layers of four deep. The morgue is completely filled, and bodies are now being carried to the old market building in Adams strat. They cannot be recognized. THE DEATH HARVEST. At 2 o'clock p. in, 115 bodies had been recovered, and tnere are probably as many more within the ruins. Some persons as sert that none in the upper gallery of the theatre escaped. The last man who left the tain before they fell, says that behind him was a helpless half suffocated crowd. 4 p. m One hundred and seventy-fire bodies had been taken from the .ruins of the theatre. The ruins are still burning, making the work cf removing the bodies very difficult. Flags are at half mast Uironghout the city and the theatres draped in mourning. , AXttanoHAx, Homaoss. - Horror upon horror accumulated as the day advanced, and corpse after corpse, charred and blackened, was passed out, and still the pile of bodies in the cellar did not seem to diminish as the number mounted up ta ISO and 160. The belief that the number would reach over 200. erew int I certainty, and finally at half past four th TWO HUNDREDTH BODY was removed. Some were found with limbs ' t t j i t . .j ,i,:.. if l,nt ana nnus uumeu va, buu u.., -- - A GHASILYELACIIESED TRUSS. At 5 o'clock the number ad reached 220. Twenty bodies were taken opt in half an hoar, and a look into the pit at this time still showed a considerable pile of corpses lying crwswi&i like sticks of wood, and there were apparently still 50 of CO more. This was in the cellar tinder the inner vestibule, from where all the bodies' taken out to-day were removed. They lay in a pile, apparently where -they had been pitched into the cellar when the floor and stairway gave way. At a late hour to night 2So bodies had been recovered and the Fire Marshal .who had made an ex amination of the circumstances attending the fire, is of the opinion that at least S00 psrsons perihcd in the flames. TRIBUTES OF RESPECT. Bbooelyjt, December C. The courts ad journed this morning, without transacting any business. There is intense excitement in the city, and business is partly suspended. The Park theatre has been clewed for a week. LITIR PARTICULiRS. Nrtv York, December 7. The dimen sions of the awful calamity which has be fallen the city of Brooklyn in the destruc tion of its principal theatre by fire, and consequent loss of life, have net yet been realized. Enough is known, however, to make it certain that THE CATASTROPHE ranks among the most fatal of the kind ever recorded. According to the statements of all the parties who profess to know any thing as to the origin of the fite, it began on the stage. The business manager, Mr. Rogers, says that a piece of canvas, out of which trees, &c are made, was broken from iti fastenings and hung from the flies im mediately over one of the border lights, near the center of the stage. The canvas had begun to smoulder, and the paint en it to crack, when the carpenter was directed to ascend to one of the grooves and remove the dangerous object. He could barely i each it with his hand, and he drew it hastily up. The rapid motion through, the air ignited the highly inflammable canvas, causing it to BURST INTO A FLAME, which rapidly spread to the adjoining ma terial, equally susceptible. All efforts to extinguish the flames were abortive, and the carpenter had to retire to save his own life, the scene in the galleries, after the alarm was raised, is described as SOMETHES-Q HORRIBLE even to contemplate. Up to noon to day 315 bodies had been removed. O' these 59 are identified, some by remnants of clothing, watches, chains, and such articles, but few by their features. The actors, Claude Burroughs and Harry S. Murdock, are among the identified. CLEARING THE WRECK. This afternoon, a number of men will be set to work to clear away all the wreck in the auditory. Hitherto their labors have been chiefly conficeJ to the space formerly occupied by the lobby and ttage. It is feared that when a careful search is made in the auditory, that the bodies of a good many men, who leaped, in their frenzy, from the galleries, will be found. The po lice allow no person to enter within the walls of the theatre, with the exception of those engaged in the search for the dead. The small paiti of the ceilings and floors of the theatre yet remaining, are in en un safe condition. A CORIU ERS JURY was impanelld this morning, adjoining the burned theatre. They took no evidence, and at noon adjourned till Saturday even ing. A. M. Palmer, one of the lessees of the theatre, gives the following statement of the number of persons in the theatre, Tuesday evening : 405 persons in the up per gallery ; GOO persons in the dress circle; 250 persons in the parquette ; 21 actors and speaking people; 20supe, 10 stige hands and 12 musicians; total 1,018; or includ ing dresccrs and other subordinates, 1,050 persons. A FAULT in the construction of the burned building, and one to which there is reason to believe the dreadful loss of life in the gallery is in a large measure attributable, was the use of painted cloth for the ceiling. The can vas caught easily and burned rapidly. Of course the flames followed it to the venti lator at the top, making the dome A FUNNEL OF FIRE, right over the heads of the people in the gallery. It seems more than probable that the smoke and lire, in the midst ol which they were thus placed, destroyed the lives of many persons who might else have escaped, even by the inade quate stairway provided for them. Ihere was even a larger crowd AROUND THE MORGUE this evening than on yesterday. A surg ging mass of people occupied the sidewalk in front of the dead houa?, and stretched into the middle of the street, and men and boys clambered upon the fences and wagons in the neighborhood. Yesterday, the peo ple who congregated in the neighborhood of this building, were quiet and orderly, but to-day there was A SriRIT OF IXYTrY perceptible, notwithstanding that the fire was in event only two days old. Ho per mits for admission were demanded of those persons who could satisfy the officers that they had lost friends or relatives by the lire but were allowed to enter from time to time, passing in the front door and through the room on the right hand, which contain ed about thirty bodies lying on the floor. NONE HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED so far. The searchers then payed through a smaller room at the faither end of the building back to the left hand room, in which some corpses were lying upon mar ble slabs and tables, in trie centre. Upon such bits of clothing as remain upon the bodies, numbers written hastily, with lead pencils, on bits of paper have been pinned, and when a body has been recognized the name and address are added to the num ber. Upon receipt of the coroner's permission, the corpse is placed in a plain coffin and driven to the address given by the per sons who have claimed it. There are very few identifications, however. It is impos sible that there can be, as many features are, for the most part, unrecognizable. Trinkets, and such things, were many of them lost in ths crowd and the clothing has been either all destroyed or burned in to mere rags. At the Adams street morgue, formerly known as the old Fulton Market, the tCESE WAS HORRIBLE in the extreme. On the floor lay a large number of charred bodies, but in many in stances it was impossible to tell whether they had formerly been male or female, human or animal. In some cases the mass was only about a handful of CHARRED BONIS AND FLESH. without a remnant of clothing or other property that could possibly lead to identic fication. In other cases the clothing was either torn Irom or burned on the bodies. leaving but charred and blackened re mains, which could not be called bodies. Among the bodies not so badly burned, was one ol a man wno nan evidently LEAPED FKOJt THE GALLERY, as one leg was broken short off above the ankle. The remains of Dr.Frankish, a dentist, wno resides at x'ortland avenue and Fulton street, were recognized by the ini tials on his shirt collar. It was the only article of his wearing apparel which could be distinguished. A report of A HOST DISTRESSIXa CASE , has been made by Capt. Crafts, of the sec ond precinct. Mrs. Smith, a widow lady, and her daughter, Mrs. Simpson, left their residence, No. 14 Sands street, Tuesday evening to attend the theatre. The only ether occupants of the house were a ser vant girl and an orphan child, wbcm Mrs. Simpson had adopted. Neither of the la dies have returned to their home, and hav ing no friends in the city, no effort has been made to identify their remains. The hus band of Mrs. Simpson is expected home from a long voyage at the close of the week. THE CSDZETAKEES were constantly driving up to the morgue all the morning, with wasronsaad Demits for the removal cf the identified remains. and the police had great difficulty in mak ing a passage way lor them throBgk the solidly packed crowd, which filled op the street in front of the building'. Hdrede of people haVe been to the station hoot t -day, inquiring after absent friends, awl THX.rrriFCLscEarjBi of yesterday were re-enacted with -tea-fold force. Two hundred and niaety-tevea bodies have been deposited ia the mm. us and a temporary one, on Adasss street, a wtgon load of bodies was on Use way when the reporter left, amsJdns; 309 in alt The mortality will probably reach 350 peraesks. The aldersaaaic coMirHsj ea ! i ill m- port thatat-11 o'ekek to-day 1SS bodies Were at 're Adams street market morgue, and 96 at the city morgue. Sheridan Sliock was at the police station to-day. He had little to eiy, ami was in tensely affected by tho terrible affair. A. M. Palmer is ill from his constant attend ance ia Brooklyn since the disaster, but Mr. Rogers, acting stage manager of the thea tre, and representing Messrs. Shook and Palmer, the les-ees, is empowered and is anxious to relieve any case of immediate suffering consequent upon the conflagra tion. The late treasurer, Gage, expressed the same sentiment of commiseration and willingness to assist the unfortunate in any manner possible. Mr. Shook has ordered the Union Square Theatre, New York, to be closed until after the funeral of the vic tims of this awful calamity. RELIEF F03 THE SUFFERING. New Yore, December 8. At a meeting of the actors and actresses to-day, to arrange for a benefit for" the Brooklyn theatre suf ferers, every regular theatre and minstrel troupe in New York and Brooklyn was rep resented. A large number ol theatrical people were represented individually in ad dition. A resolution was adopted, that cverv theatrical manager in the country be asked to contribute the proceeds of one per- lormance to the reliel lund. New York, December C. Brooklyn L literally walking in the VALLEY OF TIIE SHADOW OF DEATH. Funerals of such of the victims of the thea tre disaster as have been iilentibed arc taking place, and through the streets, in every part of tiie city, Lcarses are going, bearing the remains to the cemeteries. About 55 men are at work on the ruins, and it l- hoped that the full extent of the cal amity will be tHumtely ascertained witnin the next 21 hours. They have not vet suc ceeded in uncovering the dress circle, ana it is therefore still uncertain how many, if any, of the spectators in it perished. ONE MORE BODY was found this morning in the parnuctte. and alw two or three fragments ol flesh, which may possibly belong either to the bodies which have already been removed, as to others which have been almost totally consumed. The bodv was so charred and disfigured as to be unrecognizable, but it was evidently that of a woman, as a pie re of a hoopskirt adhered to the remain?. The articles from the dead have been deposited for identification, and are cuarded by a police officer. Since 11 o'clock, when the articles were arranged for identification, they have been examined by a large num ber ol persons. 1 ne REMAINS OF MURDOCH, and his brother actor, Claude Burroughs, are in the charge of the undertakers. Sev eral bodies were claimed at both morgues to-day. One body, on which was found a cold watch, was claimed by no less than seven persons. Iu the temporary morgue there is quite a pile ol arms, legs and Ing nients ol flesh. The police central office and city hall are HEAVILY DRAPED, and the large business establishments are putting on the habiliments ol mourning. A number of storei arc closed ami on the door arc notice reading, "closed in conse quence of death in the lamily." At the investigation which the fire mar shal U making, John L)Onat;slifisd that he was in the top gallery, and first saw the fire through a crack in the scene in the left hand side of the stage. It was quite a large Uame. "When I heard the cry ot 'lire,' my friend and myself ran down the stairs, but I called him back again, and we sat down, but only for a minute. 1 dropped over the bannisters at the head of the stairs. When I get up, a policeman tried to puh me back, beveral other jumped on top ot me. The stairs were crowded then, and the po lice tried to KEEP THE CROWD BACK. There was also a crowd down ahead of me. but I met with no further obstruction. Not half of the people had got out of the gallc ry at the time I left. There was nothing to indicate the breaking ot the stairs when X came down. The people were panic-stricken and were falling on each other. There were very few women in the gallery." Mr. T. Bryan, who wai in the parquette, testified: 'I dj not think there were six persons behind me when I got out. I am sure when I got out there was not a man er women in the parquett?." TBE FOLLOWING TESTIMONY was taken by the fire marshal : Jno. Doyle was in the gallery at the time of the fire, and said that when the alarm was given, all made a rush. About 100 got out before he did. He first saw the fire in the flies, over the stage, and the cry of "fire" was raised behind. Murdock went to the foot-lights and requested all to be seated, ne saw oth ers sit down again and saw flakes of fire falling on tbe stage. He thought it was in the playl He got up and went out when it increased. Some cne fell, and then 25 or 30 fell over him. A rush of fire and smoke then came through like a whirlwind. Jno. Turner, an old fiieman, said, "Look out for yourself; the place is all ablaze." Tbe people were panic-stricken, and cried out that the stairs were falling behind them. They begged some one for Cod's sake to let them out. tie did net see tbe stairs lxll. He thought that not more than 75 people from the callerv got out. There were per haps 50 women in the gallery. Turner was buried to-day. EIGHTY BODIES are still in the morgue and S3 in the Ad ams street market. I'art ol some olthe corpses have crumbled and look like heaps of offal. Carbolic acid is poured over them hourly, by order of the board of health, and chloride of lime is scattered about thell oor, in order that the decomposing limbs and trunks may not increase the offensivencss of the place. The Coroner made a further post mortem examination unlay. The physicians believe that most of the deaths were CAUSED BY SUFFOCATION. The relief committee is now ascertaining the number of surviving relatives and ther condition. PRATER FOR THE DEAD. At the services in the Catholic churches, to-day, reference was made to the disaster and the congregations were called upon to make manifest their Catholic charity by prayer for the dead and pecuniary aid for the living. Charles Adams was in the dress circle and ,j FIRST 8AW THE FIRE in the scenery at tbe left hand comer of the stage from the audience. It was then that tbe cry of "fire" was given, and all started or rushed for the doors. He told the peo ple to keep quiet, acd they did so. Mr. Studley then said, go, and go quietly. They then rushed out, and I got knocked down, but got up again and took out a lady, who was with me. I saw SEVERAL LADIE3 KNOCKED DOWN in the parquette, and others in the vesti bule. There was even a flash of fire to the ticket office from the dress circle. At the front entrance the people were all in a panic. Women were knocked down and the crowd rushed over them. I think if the audience had been requested to leave quietly, when the fire first broke out, they could have been saved. There might have been trouble in the gallery. I don't thick all the people got out of the dress circle, as that place was very hot when I left it. I did not hear any stairs break, but HEARD THE FIRE CRACKLING on the stage. Mr. Richardson was in the gallery. We saw men with poles trying to pull the fire down. The sparks were then falling, and the actors tried to quiet the audience, and some sat down. Iu a mo ment a panic ensued, and all rushed for the door. There was a mass of people there when I got to the door. In going down the first flight of stairs all were, push ing, but on their feet. The lights were up at the first landing, near the box office. The lights then went out and a man fell and I fell on top of him. Then it seemed that all who followed fell in a heap. The place was dark and VOLUMES OF EXOKE. came up. I was on my face, but was fa miliar with the stairs and got cut acd went down. There was co baluster or Hand-rail. I looked back from the street, but saw no one coming out. I don't think anyone got down from the gallery after me. They were all piled up is a heap on the first landing from the street, sear the box-office. I went around to the stage-door and it was but and on fire ; then came down to the front, and the police were clearing the street. Tbe panic and the want of a bet ter means ot exit prevented tbe people from getting out, I was about a minute in ex tricating myself from the crowd. Tbe jog or landing on the tain caused the people to fall. THE PUBLIC FUNERAL of tbe un-idectifkd dead, will take place on Saturday instead of Sunday, as previously Mated. Tbe Memorial services, however, will be held on Sandav. At noon, to-mor row, tbe militia will assemble on Scbetntf J.ora street, we ngnt resting on FUtbtub (.rssHK. Tbe Potiee, band, and clergy in i carriages; hearse?, escorted, by tbe military; relatives and carriages. THE CITZSN'a PROCESSION will move at one o'clock. The cervices in ths cemetery will consist -of prayers, ad dr?se3 and fciojing by the choral society. The bodies will be taken from the two morgues by the undertakers without special ceremony. Each coffin is to be carried in a seperate vehicle to the placo Of. assembly, on Schermcrhorn street, which will bs kept free from tho ordinary travel while the cortege is forming The places: of busuess will Le closed between the hours of one and three. The lot in GREENWOOD CEMETERY is on the summit of an elevation. It is circular, and nearly sixty feet in diameter. The rise from the circumference to the cen ter is about two feet. The ground was presented by the cemetery association, and tho plan for tbe arrangement of. tbe coffins was made by Comptroller Perry. In order that the services may not bs marred by the presence of an unsightly hill of fresh earth thrown up by grave diggers, Comp troller l'erry has voluntered to have all the earth car led away and afterwards carried back ngain. A CIRCULAR TRENCH fourteen feet wide will be dug completely around the inside of the circumference. This will leave the center of the plat for a monument about 13 feet in diameter. In the trench the bodies will belaid with their feet towards the center, and as cJomj as may be necessary. The workmen are busily en gaged digging the trench ttday. The lot is ou Battle avenue, near the exit for funerals. All coffins are to be alike. They will be plain, but tasteful in construction, the only ornament being a double row of diamond-headed tacks. It is supposed that not more thau 100 vehicles will be needed. ABOUr THREE TII0U3AND lUFANTRT, under the command of Gen. Thomas C. DaLin, will form the escort. Line of march will be through Flatbush avenue to Sixth avenue, thence to Third street, thence to Fourth avenue and to Twenth-fifth street, which leads to the cemetery.

At a meeting of the clergymen invited to the memorial service, Father Malone said the usage of his church would not permit him to officiate in any cf the exercises, bat he would be only too glad to co-operate, per sonally, as far as he could. His own church had been sadly affected, and he should hold appropriate services at the missionary meeting in the Church of the Pilgrims. Last night the regular Mission ary collection was dispensed with and a collection of S129 taken up to defray the expenses of the burial of three sons of Mrs. Rose, members of the church. FORGED PASSES to the morgue and the Adams street market, where the bodies and fragments of bodies are taken, were sold on the streets for 25 cents apiece. THE SCENE OF THE HORRIBLE CATASTROPHE In Brooklyn was almost deserted this morn in; in consequence of the unsafe condition of tbe walls. That part of Washington street, from the post-otlice to Johnson street, was enclosed by a barrier of rope, guarded by a cordon of police, and no pedestrians were permitted to traverse it. The bitter wind and driving dust aided the police in the execution of their duties. Within the ruins a number of workmen were engaged in bracing THE DANGEROUS WALL, and the firemen re-umtd their labors soon after one o'clock. Almost the whole inter ior of the theatre has now been explored. The vestibule has been cleared out, from the front entrance to the staircase, and this afternoon a heap of rubbish beneath the sraircasc will be removed. The parquette has been thoroughly searched, and there cow remains but a few parts of the stage unexplored. A SAD DISCOVERY was nis.de this morning. Among the ruins of the stage it was thought that the frag ment of the human body found Thursday, near the corpse of pocr Burroughs, was all that remained of the actor, Murdock. This proved not to be the case, for tbe body of Murdock, or rather part of it, was found this morning and clearly identified. It ap pears that the workmen, engaged in clear ing the stage yesterday, noticed a strong oder proceeding from a heap of brick, near tbe lelt proscencenium box, and came to the conclusion that a dead body lay beneath it. This morning the bricks were carefully removed, and beneath them were found parts of the charred body of a man's right leg. About one-third ot the right side- of trunk had escaied THE FURY OF THE FLAXES. The head and npper part of the body were consumed. One of the firemen no- twea mat a piece ol blade velveteen ad- hered to the knee of the leg. and this fact caused the belief that the remains were those of Murdock. Tbey were afterwards examined hj Col. Grelet, Learanie Rogers and Miss Xt illiama, and were fully identi fied by them as being those of Murdock. They not only recognized the velveteen fragment as a part of tbe costume of tbe cripple "Pierre," in the ''Two Orphan," but also the buttons with which the knee breeches had been fastened. THE CHARRED FRAGMENTS) were then removed by the undertaker, who will preserve them until instructions are received from the friends of the dead man. Two women and two men are to-day added to the already long list of missing. THE EAST SITES. At 15 minutes before 12 tbe neighbor hood of Schermerhorn street and Flatbush avenue was deserted. Jo crowds were waiting to see the procession, and there was no procession to be seen. The bitterly cold weather has caused Gen. Dakin to countermand the onjers issued yesterday to the local militia, and only those members of regiments who volunteered their services will take part in the funeral procssstoc. IN FRONT Or THE MORUUE cng lines of wagons, draped in black, were drawn up, ami undertakers were directing the removal of the coffined bodies and pre paricg to carry them ta their boral place. Along Flatbush avenue, through which the funeral procession is to pass, the shops are closed and emblems of mourning appear upon many doors and windows. Many oi the stores in the principal streets are also closed. THE LAST tCXmC. Tbe curtain rose, this morcier. noon tbe last act of the fearful tragedy, which began with the fire in Brooklyn Tuesday evening. Special services will beheld in the different places to-morrow, in accordance with the programme, bnt the burial of the bodies of the victims this alternoon was a fitting end to one of the MOST DOLEFUL UBT0SII3 of modern times. ThU morning all the bodies in the morgue were removed to the temporary dead boose, in the old market, where there were, in all, one hundred charred corpses. A hundred coffins, with German silver mountings, were brought in and placed up on iae uuor, uu jqmj uicu me umaeBtmea and destitute dead were placed. Fifty-six bearers and undertaker's wagons drew up at the entrance on Adams street, and tbe remains were lifted into thea. There were two coffins each in a number of vehicles. COSSIDEXABLKBELAT in forming tbe processioB was caased by the desire of persons ia tbe iWi street Borgse to coatiaae tbetr eiarw for tbe identification of frienJ?, tnd several addi-1 t:onal bodies were recognized. Hie tiirosg I abaat the market was vcrr Itrze. and na me t utmost excitement prevailed. Shortly at ter olc o'clock . ! THE GHASTLY CORTEGE Btarted through lkwrune place, and then entered Schermerhorn street. Hundred cl men, women and children followed, rush ing along tbe sidewalk in a state of great agitation. When the hearses and wagons reached Schermerhorn ttreet they were formed in parallel lines, and there was a delay of nearly three quarters of an hour. Although the weather was bitterly cold, and the cutting wind blowing a gale, the neighborhood of Schermerhorn street and Flatbush axenue was crowded with participants and sympathetic specta tors, sadness in the faces of the women wait ing on the pavements was very markd. The soldiers who were awaiting orders to move, suffered intensely front the cold. It was 20 minutes to two when THE ORDER TO MARCH was given. The procession immediately moved from the head of Schcmerhorn street into Flatbush avenue, amid general mourn ing, and timed by the measured roll of drums, and the titful sobbing of almost broken hearts withiu the hou-es and out side. Far along the wide avenue, and across Broad street, many an eye was moist, and many a lip quivering as the dead were BORNE TO GREENWOOD, leaving behind them Bacred memories and cruel poverty, which will not soon be ef faced, and by their very stillness acd seclu sion appealing more loudly than the noise of words in behalf of their stricken and famishing loved ones, and for a wise and generous charity. Compared with other funeral prjcessions, the great procession of to-day nau MANY CHARACTERISTICS of its own in the number and appearance of the many crisped and dismembered forms. Occupants of the carriages all of them the nearest friends of the dead none of them, as is so often tbe case, distant re latives and mere acquaintances, with tear less and conventional sadnesj were distinct and terrible features. But one feature which pervaded the scene and lent to it a distinctive and deeply touching significance, were the manifestations of popular sympa thy and sorrow, with which the communi ty had been afflicted, acd sadness was com mon. Many of private and almost all of the public buildings were heavily draped. AH flags were at half-mast, and torn by the wind almost into shreds, as if the great oc casion had a right to-all the service they could ever render. An immense crowd had assembled in Flatbush avenue, just beyond its junction with Schermerhorn street, and as the cortege filed into the formers thor oughfare, the great mass of humanity moved with it. Intensely cold weather seemed now to have little or no effect on the people, there were men, wo men and children completely blocking up the avenue, and surging out in tbe carriage way. The police kept a wide space open for the procession, which moved slowly up the avenue, tho people pressing on and en deavoring, apparently, to approach as near ly as possible to the hearse, acd wagoas bearing fragmentary remains of victims of the play-house tragedy, windows ol houses were filled with spectators, and far ahead along the avenue was black with human beings. Arriving at Sixth avenue, the ciilumu proceeded down that avenue, passed private residences, with their peo pled windows, court-yards and trcops. A vast crowd accompanied tho precision which then turned into Third street and moved down toward Fourth avenue. There was a perfect gale blowing, and when the procession reached Fourth avenue immense clouds of dust were driven across its dreary path, and progress was made with consid erable difficulty ; thence the line of inarch was continued to Twenty-fifth street, and up Twenty-fifth to Greenwood, the beauti ful city of the dead. There was a tremen dous crowd at GreenwooJ, and as the cor tege parsed through the gate tbe bell in the tower tolled mournfully. On cither side, along the pathways, on the hillsides, and invading private plots, the people were gathered. Turning to the left, the lu neral party proceeded to Battle ave , where, about 1,500 yards from the entrance of the cemetery, a trench had been prepared for the reception of the dead. A great crowd was near, and just within the cemetery they were formed about the vast grave, the site being en the slope of the hill, and completely exposed to the cold, which was almost in sufferable, but still people held their places. There was no delay in re moving the bodies lrom the hearses ami wagons and depositing them in the regular trench. Then THE SERVICES were begun. The Rev. Noah H. Ec'ienck read the beautiful burial services of the Episcopal church, which were listened to attentively by those who were within reach of his voice. There was an INEXPRESSIBLE SADNESS mingled with the solemnity of the scene. Hundreds of people wept, the tears freezing on their cheeks as they issued from their eyes. After the reading or the services, the Rev. A. P. Putnam, ofthe Unitarian Church of Our Saviour, addressed the assemblage. The Rev. A. Stewart Walsh, a Baptist cler gyman, offered a fervent prayer at the con clusion of Mr. Putnam's remarks, and the serviees-wsre then brought to a close with a benediction by the Rev. Joseph O'Dell. Previous to the DISMISSAL OF THE ASSEMBLAGE the choral societies sang a hymn. The people then departed, and all was ended, except the enduring agony of the widow and orphan. HORRIBLE DETAILS. New York, December 7. The descrip tion given by persons who were in the gal lery of the Brooklyn theatre at the time of tbe disaster is heartrending and horrible. Alfred A Jones gives the following account of tbe scene : 1 was seated next tj the front row, but, seeing that something was wrong on the stage, X moved up to the en trance ot the tier.- hile my back was turned shrieks were heard, and the mass of people in the gallery arose in wild confu sion. I cannot describe the scene as it was. They were climbing over seats, gripping each other by the clothes, and 'struggling frantically to get ahead of one another. I saw one man smash a fellow in the face who would not yield to him in the passage, and a big, powerful woman tore her way through and came toward me with scarcely any clothes on her back and with BLOOD STREAMING FROM HER NOSTRILS. Two decent-looking boys got together in the front row, and I saw them clambering over seats and squeezing their bodies through the crowd. One of them was thrown down, and the other turned acd called him wildly by name. I got down among the first that escaped, and didn't wait to see what happened. i ANOTHER. A tall, stout man, who said he was a truckman, gave a very vivid description of the scene. "When the uproar began," he -1 1T ...1 I .1 S-f- .. . Biu, x was bci?u iu iue luir, aoout ine middle of the gallery, and three or four seals from the front. I never saw any thing like it. All the people in the gal lery seemed to be crowding one on top of another. There were men there who seem ed perfectly frantic. The yells acd shrieks I shall never forget to my dying day. 'My wife is down stairs 1' one man cried out, 'let me get her outl' 'We're all safe if you only be orderly !' another cried. .At the same time, however, he was making the most strenuous exertions to get through the throng. The weakest went down one after another, and the strongest rushed recklessly over them. I could actually hear the bones cracking as the men jumped on the writhing, straggling, helpless mass beneath them. The cries that ascended amid ths uproar were beartrendering. 'MY OODl HAVE MERCY ON ME I' one voice repeated several times. One man managed to crawl from a heap of prostrate bodies, but tbe struggling throng rushed against him and be spun round towards me and fell almost at ay feet. I tried to lift him, but he groaned once or twice and gave a lew gasps, ana all was over, vt hen 1 saw it was to be life or death, I made for the door. All I've been telling took place in a few seconds, but there is a picture in my mind I could not paint. When I got out I walked over bodies three or four deep." PHILIP WASSXR wasamoez tbe very last to set out of the gallery. He gives the following account of the calamity : "I got in from the row near the stage. I saw the fire from tbe very first. As I looked up to the gallery the scene wss tbe most terrific that one could imagine. Men and boys were tearing one over another, and tbe shrieks and oaths were awfuL One man clambered op tbe heap, and was spun round and round on the head of tbe throng, be was flung with a crash IcooJd distinctly hear against the back of the gallery. Every one wa for himself, and men aseesed to become wild beasts. Tbey were threatening and tearing one another wltbtbeir beads. Seats were piled witbpwetrrtebsmMbsiags, and, at swc cesstul stragglers forced their way over the gasping lorms mat i- r cu arounu, omers wno ntu been ctuju ta iarrjisjuiiiy ieii as they l;s: tnc support r.i me uvisg. There was nothing fit it but for myself, and some others who" had waited, TO WALK OVER THE PILES OF BODIES on the floor. They were slippery with blood. Hands ar.d fet were protruded here and there, which showed that life was still in s-ime of theci. By this time the smoke was dene, and tbenohe and shout ing from the lower part of the house were terrible. I and some others managed to get to the stairway, and we went down in a mass how I couldn'rtell you. All this I have been describing took place in less than two minutes. One man who got out in the crowd just before me showed me his arm, which had been bitten almost to the bone." ANOTHER VICTIM. New York. December 11. John Cum- merson, fly man in tbe Brooklyn Theatre, and who was injured in trie disaster, uieu yesterday. The fire marshal obtained from him the following testimony : I had charge cf the flies, and s vw TnE FIRE break out. It commenced in the centre of the building, in the rigging to the left among the borders or drop crutaics. I think the draft brought the borders in con tact with the light. There were wire cov ers over the light. We thought to pre vent the borders from toachirg the lights. The borders did not get rut of order in any way. They went up-right enough, but when I came to Jet them down they dragg ed. I tried to put the greeu curtain down and it broke, Nothing broke before the fire. Tnis was COMMENCEMENT OF THE TROUBLE. I was unfastening the grooves when cne of the men tried to put out the fire with a pole, but could not do it. We had no fire hose attached. I saw hydrants in the building, tinder and on the stage, but no ho9e. We had TWO OTHER FIRES in the theatre shortly before this at one. One was in the box office and the other on the stage. I think tbe doors leading to Johnston street were all clear. The alarm was given to the police pretty soon after the fire was discovered, but the audience were not notified of it for three or four min utes. I kept the curtain down as long-as I could. In eoinz down 1 found 1 had staid longer than I should have done, and could not get out. On tbe landing I MET MURDCCK, and he went right up to his room. I saw him drop from the heat and smoke. I jumped out of a window on flood's alley, leading from the first landing. Murdock and Burroughs first went down the stage to get out, and when they lound the heat was too great they went up stairs again. Other stage hands got out of the door on Johnson street. I was on the ether side acd could not reach that door. If I had had a lire hose and water on the stage, or in the flic, I could have PUT OUT THE FIRE before it gained such headway. It blazed up rapidly. Bill Layton saw it first and said. "I think that is a tire." 'ihis was the first I saw of it. A SAD CASE. Daniel T. Collins, of 101 President street, perished in the fire, and the suspense which the alilicted family underwent, tilt the und ing of his body, wrought so injuriously on the condition of Wm. H. Collins, who was ill, that brain fever resultsd and he died yesterday. AMONG THE MISSING. Robert Still, brother of Daniel Still, one of those who perished in the theatre, is also . . ,, ti TV li- . r missing. Also Joan u. tiarmrr, oi ij Atlantic Avenue, and it is supposed he was killed in the theatre. Of the TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-FIVE persons who perished in the fire, and of whern 190 have been identified, all but 42 were males. 11 of the victims were from New York. Fifty-three were between 15 and 20 years of age, 51 between 20 and 25, 20 betveen 25 and 40, 15 between 30 and 35, and 12 were over 50 years. NEWSTAPEK VICTIM3. John McGinniw, an old employe of the Brooklyn "Eagle," is among the killed, with two lady friends, whom he had escorted to thi theatre. He was about thirty-five years old, and was well known in Brooklyn. It is likely that he bravely remained with his lady friends until the lat. He was an old fireman of the foinier Volunteer Depart ment, accuittonied to battling with flame. cool-hejded and rapid in decision, and if he had been alone, would undoubtedly have found means to ocapc. Stuart Campbell liana, a young reiorter on thestaffof the "Commercial Advertiser," of New York, is among the victims of tlie ca lamity. He is known to have vfcitcd the theatre on the night of the fire, and he has not been seen since. lie wao only eighteen years old. A BRAVE OFFICER. Officer Patrick McKean, of tie Central Office squad, who was detailed to preserve order in the gallery of the theatre, is among tbe dead, lie was a good olhcer, and bad been made a member of the Centrai Squad for his exemplary conduct. He was seen working bravely in the vetibule of the the atre, trying to get the panic-stricken people to move out in an orderly manner. Just before the fatal blast of smoke-and gas fill ed the entire building it was noticed that he was exhausted by his hard labors ; that he had lost his bat, and that his coat had been torn from him by the surging crowd. It is supposed that he was precipitated, when tbe floor give way, into the horrible pit from which so many dead were taken yesterday. Officer McKean was a young man about thirty years of age, and the support of a widowed mother. the janitor's effective woek. From the New York-Times J Mr. Sweeney, the janitor, stated : I was standing at the Bide door, back of the par quette, when I heard the noise of the people jumping up on the seats; I saw spark coming through the roof of the scene or mimic house. I then said to the parties nearest the door, who were were struggling to get out, "For God's sake, gentlemen, don't hurry, and you will all get out in plen ty of time," The utmost confusion and ex citement prevailed. I then got my lantern, which was close at hand, and started for the stage, where the fire was. I met Mrs. Far ren, who played "Mother Frochard," and a lady and gentleman coming through the stage passage, under the auditorium. She begged to be showd the way out. "Certain ly," I said, "keep quiet." I brought'them to the staircase leading to the lobby, where tbey could get out into the street with safety. I then returned to the stage by the same passage, Juntier the audi to rum, and when I got to the top of tbe stairs I heard a great noise, when ev erything teemed to fall on tbe stage with a great crash. Immediately after a gust of wind blew the gas out. ibe lire and smoke became so strong that I had to return down the stairs, back into the same pas sage. I then went under the stage and cried out, "if there is any one there, come this war and I will show vou out." I re ceived no reply, and tbe smoke became so dense that 1 had to return into the lobby. I went to the dress circle staircase, where there was quite a jam of exciud people, all struggling to get down the stairs at the same time. I PICKED UP A LADY as I was going up stairs, who had fallen down acd was getting trampled en. -I brought her down the stairs and placed ber la charge of a gentleman who was with her; I then returned to the dress circle stairs, where I met'District Engineer Farley and Sergeant John CainJ; .we managed to get up to the first landing, and found a young ltdjj lying there insen sible, all cut and bruised about the face ; Mr. Van Sicklen, one oi the stage ma chinists, carried her out of the theatre and into tbe station house; we then pushed our war to tbe top landing on tbe dress circle stairs ; Mr. Farley at that moment took ay lantern from me as to get light into the drees circle, to see if any people were there; WE BAEG OUT, "If there is anyone in there come this way," we repeated the call a dozen times, but saw bo one and received no answer. At this time tbe engines were about getticg to work outside, and the smoke was so dense that we had to coaae down stairs. Tbe fire had reached the lobby. We were driven down tlu atpa tf tti tnfikv k !. .f a! asoke aad fire, which seemed to nrocecii Iron tike dress-circle aad auditorium down stairs. I lound I could not do anything more. I spoke to Officer Chambers and aked him to go up-stairs and see about Mr. Thorp's family. They lired OTer the tain entrance.

He said Le was in the theatre at the time of the fire, with his wife and a friend. They were in the drees circle, well away from the doer. No sooner had he ct his eyes upon ili Claxton, who was upon the tags when the curtain rose, than he taw fUmes darting up among the border work. At first he thought the gas had been turned on too full, and the jets were spurting up in consequence. Suddenly the word "Fire" rang out from the gallery. Then a woman hastenedto Miss Claxton and acted in a most excited manner, as if urging her to get up and leave. His wife clutched at his shoulder and said, "TEE HOUSE IS AFIRE; let us make for the door." .In an instant he saw it was a rush for life. People in the better parts of the house began attemnticc to quiet the fear3 of the people by exclaim ini? : "Sit down " "Keep your seatt I" etc But a panic had apparently occurred in the eillrr. There was a terrible noise. Some could be heard jumping from seat to . r i ;.; . . ... r .1.a n. seai, icsicau oi waiting logti uui u ; u dinary manner. Immediately the stream of people fiom the inside reached the doors, there was a block-, 'a he names snot up arnomr the scenes, behind tbe covIUmj, and swept over to the roof, oyer the orchestra ana auditorium, Clinging to me wiiiiig, it were, darticc wider and wider each in stant over tbe heads of the struggling peo ple in the dress circle. olumes of smoke began to descend in an oblique line from tbe top of the stae. At this lime his wife fainted, and he took her up ia his arms". His Iriend disappeared, and has not since Lccn seen. SAVED HIS WIFE. Now there was a desperate struggle. Per sons from the gallery and elsewhere had blocked the doors, and there were many be hind him in the dress circle, pushing vio lently, one even clutching at the head of his wife as she hun? over his shoulder. Slowly they were making for the doors, when the flames from the ceiling seemed to dart down and meet tne jets from the gasa lier. Then there was dreadful yelling and crowding at the doors, men and women struggling desperately for every inch gain ed. A horrible accident occurred. A lady partly suffocated, like the rest of them, had fallen and could cot be lifted, and was evi dently trampled to death. But there was no time to think. He passed over several forms. Looking behind for an instant he saw there was a frightful panic in the the atre. The gas or something else had ex ploded, the lights were out, the flames roar ed and the pieces ot wood and piaster ieii upon the heads ot those at a distance. "ME2CY !" "MY GCD, SAVE ME I" and names of husbands and brothers were shouted. The heat was intense, for the fire was rapidly closing upon them. Arms were thrown up in an attempt to force a passage, as men somes do when swimming. and dozens must have been swept under and trodden to death. He had now nearly reached the dour. All at once a fearful crash came, as if the gallery or ceiling had r,iu utivt .H-ir HMn!- seemed to be shouted from a hundred lips. He turned, as he felt the fresh air blow tiDon his face, and saw behind something like a dark wall. He then felt that at least 150 people were shut in to certain de struction. But the groaning and yelling continued wore than ever. iJeyond this wall he could see bright flames, which seemed to swell and surge in a terrible manner. On gaining the street he found ttill more excitement ; but he had to hurry to Flatbush avenue, where he lived, to have his wife attended to,a she remained in a fainting condition. He was at the morgue to look for his poor friend. This was told in such a pathetic, straight forward manner, that it was impossible to attribute any of the terror to imagination.
