A DEATH CRASH.
A Bl Bulldtnc 1 Cincinnati Collapses. Owlnv to un Explosion of Oolln and Uany People Are Killed mid Injured. Cihcisxati, May 5. What may prove to bathe most disastrous calamity of the year occurred in this city last night when a five-story brick structure filed with pooplo collapsed and fell, a conglomerate mass of brick and shat tered timbers, burying the unfortunate inmates beneath its ruins. It is impos sible yet to say how many persons have been killed, some placing the number as high as 10, others as low as 15. No accurate statement can be giv .n r,n this noint until the debris shall have been cleared away. The building was situated on the east side of Wal nut street, just south of Fifth street. The lower floor was occupied by Drach's saloon, the upper apartments being rented out to lodgers. People for several blocks around whore the disaster occurred were startled by a terrific explosion about 7:45 o'clock. A fire alarm was instantly turned in and in a few minutes half the fire depart ment of the city was on the scene and several thousand spectators Desiaes. The work of rescue was instantly begun, a force of men taking the front. A second corps went to the rear of the building, which opened into an alley. At the rear, cries and moans of a fe male were the only evidence of life beneath the wreck. These cries came from the cellar. It is utterly impossi ble that any persons on the other floors could have escaped a horrible death. In addition to the victims who are bur ied beneath the building, it is esti mated that fully 100 people have been more or less injured by the concussion, falling electric wires and fragments of ahat.terfld irlass. stone and timbers. A Ixin t 20 of those iniured on the streets were taken into the Gibson house just across the way and their vounds dressed. Among these was Chief of Police Pugh, of Covington, Ky., who reports the most miraculous escape of the tragedy. He states that he was just in the act of entering the saloon; in fact one foot was upon the door sill, when he was startlud by the flash from a burning electric light wire overhead. He sprang backward when almost Mmultaneously the explosion occurred and he was blown into the middle of the street and this uireumstunce saved . his life. A Newport, Ky., car which was also near the place was suddenly brought to a standstill by a fearful shock and an immense mass came crashing through the roof. This proved to be an iron door from the cellar of the building, which by some strange freak of the explosion had been blown through the falling debris and up into the air. No one in the car was hurt. A lirown street ca" was smashed al most into fragments. There wero no Tuissiflncrers on board and the conductor and motorman escaped with slight in juries. The explosion was caused by the ig nition of a gasoline tank. Adolph Drach, the proprietor of a saloon on the ground floor, had recently placed a gasoline engine in his cellar. The com mutator of the engine had burned out, setting fire to a tank of gasoline. The explosion came like a thunder clap from a clear sky. Eye-witnesses say that the building was seen to shake for an instant and then to slump in, and almost a Becond later only an indis criminate mass of ruins remained. The streets all around the block are literally covered with pieces of glass, and the shock was felt for almost a mile around. The dead so far as known are as fol lows. Dead: R. A. Davis, traveling man, Hamilton, O. Adolph Drach. proprietor of saloon. Four unidentlUed bodies. It is thought several of the injured will die. It is known that several more Tictims are yet beneath the ruins, E. A Frii-k. of Norwood, was to have left for Philadelphia last evening. Ho left J his valise in Drach's saloon early in the evening. As he has not been seen since the explosion his friends fear that his bodv is buried beneath the ruins. A largo force of firemen and others are still hard at work by electric light digging away the ruins. Groans and cries from several more victims stimu late their work. Conversations are carriod on between the workers and those 'living under the pile of brick aud niorlnr, who state that there are dead bodies around them. THE ROAR OF NIAGARA.

Mr. Guerra said: "Wn have an offer from a sintrle bid dor for all the bonds that we have now on the market and his offer is under I consideration. We printed bonds for 810,000.000, but decided to offer only S2.000.000. For the bonds now on the market wo have sufficient bids. These for all sums, but wo have already one bid for the full amount. This bid came from a western man who repre sents a syndicate of capitalists. He wants all of the 2,000,000 and will pay r.n nor cent, for them.
