Calumet. Mich.. Dec. 26 The en
tire copper mining district is today
stunned over the disaster of last night
which cost the lives of many persons,
most of them children, In a panic
after a false alarm of fire during
Christmas exercises arranged hy the
W Oman's Auxiliary of the Western
Federation of Miners.
Nearly three score strikers' homes
h.ivo been desolated All during the
y night hundreds of persons gathered
In and about the city hall and under-
taking establishments where the bod
ies have been taken it was not un- J
til late this morning that the work
of preparing the bodies for burial had
. I teen completed.
The bodies of a woman, a girl and
a boy remain to be identified. The
authorities are of the opinion that all
of tho dead have been accounted for.
Tomorrow an inquest will bo held
to invcstigato the cause of the disast
er. It seems to be well established
that the alarm of fire -was raised by
a man who came up the stairs, open
ed the door of the hall and shouted
Starter of Panic Missing
Witnesses describe the man as be
ing poorly dressed. He wore a beard
In spite of all the efforts of the au
thorities ho has not yet been found
Firemen and policemen called to
thi- hall were unable to stem the rush
of the panic stricken.
Ladders were raised to the win
dows on the second floor and firemen
began dragging women and children
from a heap of humanity which pack
ed the stairway. Other persons were
injured In their mad scramble toward
the single doorway leading to the
s, street So closely did the bodies pack
the stairway that entrance by this
means was impossible. Other rescu
ers, however, made their way into the
hall b meaus of a small fire escape
at the rear of the building.
Many Heroic Rescues.
Many Instances of heroic rescues
are being told today One boy thir
teen years old carried a little com
panlon down a ladder to safety. He
started back for another boy whom
he had seen trampled on bvlt firemen
nrpvr-nteil him from returning to the
A woman and her little daughter
were among the first to he pustv-i
down the stairs by the crowd. Both
of them were killed. A son of this
I woman managed to light his way out
ot the throng and was not injured.
Most of the men iu attendance at
the entertainment acted bravel) The
men, however, were In great minority.
One man who sought to 6tay the rush
of the crowd was crushed to death.
Little children were the first to suf
fer. They could not get out of the
way of their elders and dozens ot
dthem were trampled to death.
It was only when persons from the
outside fought their way into the hall
that the panic was checked Bodies
of some of those who were killed
I were at once carried away by fathers
and mothers. But later these were
taken to the city hall for hotter iden
tification. Calumet, Mich. Dec. 26. Pour
score person:, mostly children, were
' killed last night at a Christmas cele
bration held by copper mine strikers
In Italian hall, because al a needless

Both parents ami children made
I dash for the exits. The crush was
i so great that miiny are believed to
I have been suffocated Others were
t knocked down and trampled over
The greatest number of dead were
I found al the bottom of the stairs.
I Those who reached the stairs lirst
I evidently had been hurled to the hot
I torn and were soon covered with the
weight of many bodies Only a com
r narahw-lv lew persons were success-
I ful in reaching a lire .-Map.- at ll. e
Krear of the hall. The rush was toward
I the main exit al the- front oi the
I I building. A feu . -. aped uninjured
by jumping from windows to thts
ground only a few feet below
When the i rush at tin- main exit
I was at Its height, Impossibility ot
f further movements seemed to brlug
I the panicky persons to their senses
I and tho hall was soon cleared.
Policemen : ml i i it-lin n hurried to
I the building but at flrBt could not
gain an entrance because of the con
I geulon of bodies in tho hallway and
I on the stairs Plnallj several ofu
I; cora climbed the fire escape and en
I'tercd the hall by the windows.
Rescuers Carrying Bodies.
Rescuers were 30011 carrying the
I bodies to the street and laying them
I In rows beside the building The
I police formed a cordon about the
I hall and a lane was opened through
the crowd and the bodies removed to
the Red Jacket village hall, whjcb
was transformed into a temporary
Pot hours the streets were crowd
ed with women calling for their chil
dren. Both men and women crowded
about the building and almost fought
with the police to get a view of trie
dead in an effort to learn If an of
their relatives were among the num
ber. Few of the corpses bore marks
of injury
Many tales of the fierceness of the
crush during the height of the panic
were being told today One man was
seen to stoop to pick up his little
daughter only to be pushed on and
forced to trample her beneath him
A woman who ran to the aid of three
small boys was crushed to death with
Women Try to Quiet Crowd
When the, rush began a woman went
Quickly to the piano and began to
play. Another woman stood In the
center of the stage on which the
Christmas tree had been erected and
started to sing. Their efforts to quell
the panic were futile as they were

Gray-haired Father Allowed to
Spend Holiday With His
Eight Children.
United States Secret Service
Agent Foregoes Own Holi
day for Counterfeiter.
Chicago, Dec. 25. So that a gray
haired father, who Is confined In the
county jail, might celebrate Christmas
at home with his eight children. Cap
tain Thomas I Porter of the United
States secret sen Ire today gav tip
the Joys of a Christmas at home.
Early today he went to the county
Jail and gave his personal word to
Jailer Davles lor the safe return of
Edward Westcott, who was arrested
osterday while making counterfeit
bills The secret service agent ac
corupanled the prisoner to his home
and spent tho day with the family.
This evening he will return Westcott
to his cell
The sight of a Christmas tree and
Dumerous presents when he was
searching the Westcott home vester
day for hidden counterfeit mone led
Captain Porter to determine tr fore
go his Christmas Westcott. who was
a member of the notorious ep(j-Westcott-Brown
hand of counterfeit
ers, who Hooded the country with
BpurloUB 5 bank notes in 1908. was
arrested In Company with Otto Allen,
who has served a penitentiary term
for the same offense
Speaking of the rather troublesome
question of the school board moving
Its quarters. President Hiram Plngree
of the hoard stated this morning that
he is at a loss to know just what
to do. The next regular board meet
ing will not be held until next week,
and It Is a question whether the board
numbers would care to be disturbed
in their Christmas festivities by meet
ing in special session.
However, President Pingree says,
something must be done and he is f
the opinion that as soon as he eats
his Christmas dinner he will turn his
attention to the task and will proba
bly ask tho board to meet in special
session before the end of the week
or, perhaps, next Monday.
"We very much desired to erect a
school administration building." said
Mr. Pingree "bul we were opposed
in that undertaking by arlous par
ties, among them the city park com
missioners, threats of injunction be
ing made If we attempted to build on
the ground that had been offered by
the city board of commissioners, so
that we Ka-p up the idea of buildlnc,
even after we had our plans drawn,
as we did not care to get Into legal
entanglements We then had hopes
of getting tho city hall building re
modeleJ so as to make room for us
there, but that has not materialized.
So what are we to do?
"The city Is determined that we
shall move and I guess we will have
to do so, but where are we going to
locate? This is a question that I
cannot answer. It seems to me that
the city hall might be remodeled so as
to furnish pleuty of room for the city
loard of education as well as other
departments of the city government.
The ceilings are exceptionally high
and. by reducing some of them, would
furnish ubout one-third more room
than at present "
Mr Pingree stated further that It
is absolutely necessary for the school
board to have commodious quarters
and that, lhe heard desire, o reduce
the cost of su)ervlsing school affairs
to the minimum, which Is accomplish
ed to a great extent by obviating the
necessity oi paying rent. It has been
' suggested by some of the schoolmen
j that the commissioners' chamber Is
larger than ls needed for that body
and that by cutting off the north end
of the hall three good rooms could be
provided for the board of education.
