New York Factory Burns?Panic
in Nearby Tenements
New Vork. December 20.?Two early
morning llrcs in. tho upper part' of New
York Clty resulted to-day in the death
of oi.o man. a watchman; thc serious
injury of a llreman, and property dani
age estlmafcd at $350,000.
The flrst liro was in a six-story brlck
factory building :it 494-498 Kast One
Hundred and Thirty-foiirth Street, the
Bronx. Tho- building, occupled by
Ncncs & fo., brass nmnufacturers, had
just been rcbuilt after u llro which
eight months ago swept its Interlor
bare, leavlng llttlo but the heavy wdlls.
To-day's flre was llterally a repetltion
of the structure's proviouo experlence,
and when the llames were put undor
control aftor threo hours of hard worJt
hy ihe battalion of firemon, thp naked
walls stood baro again, just as thoy
had stood one morning elght months
The watchman of thc building.
whose name could not be ascertalned
by the policc, is belleved lo have

heat of iho smolderlng dobris will
allow, Iho flromcn wlll bdgin digging

injured. Hc fell forty feet from tho
roof of tlie burning building to the
voof of an ndjoinirig tenemcnl. Hls
left arm was broken and ho was taken
to Uticoln Hospital, suffering from
conctission ot tho. braln.
The factory was located 'n the heart
of a populous tcnemont dlstrict, and
tho dlscovery of tlio blaze was fol?
lowed by sebnes of panic in tlio sur
rounding buildiugs. Pollco rescrvea
liurriod through narrow hallways,
arouHlng tenants in the belief that the
entire block wus doomed.
Tho pollcenica had great dlfllculty
in getthig somo of the famllies awake,
but once awakened the wild 'scrainble
of mon, women and children for the
stalrwaya threatened to result In se?
rious injury lo tho woaker ones.
Finally most of tlie frlghtened peo?
plo wero assembled shivorlng in tho
sripwy streets, aud a careful examlna?
tlon of uli showed that no ono had
been soriously hurt. Threo ularui**
