FORT MILL TIMES. VOL- lX- FORT MILL, 8. C.. WEDNESDAY. JULY 4. = ~~ FIRE AT HOBQKEN. Four Ocean Liners Burned to the Wa' , ter's Edge. THREE GREAT PIERS DESTROYED. A Fire Tint Starts in Bales of Cotton Results in Fearful Lost of I if.? nml Property. New York. Special.?The four great | piers of the North German Lloyd Lino in Hoboken were totally destroyed by j .fire Saturday afternoon. The passenger steamship Saale, the freight and passenger steamship Maine ancl the i frieiglit and passenger steamship Bremen of the North eGrman Lloyd Line, were burned to the water's edge. The Hamburg Line steamship Phoenicia, a passenger steamship, was also burned to the water's edge. Campbell's storage warehouses on ' the opposite side of the street, five big buildings in all and each five stories high were also burned. The loss at the prestTit time is roughly estimated at $10,000,000. From what can he learned the flames started among a large pile of cotton bales on Pier No. 2, of the North German Lloyd Steamship Company and spread with such remarkable rapidity that in fifteen minutes the entire property of .the company, taking in over iiinu ui ii iniif1 01 water cront and consisting of three great piers, was completely enveloped in a lui^o blaze that scat threat clouds of smoke high tip int? the air. The tlanies started so suddenly and gained such headway that the people on the piers and on the numerous vessels docked were unable to reach the street. There wee great gangs of workmen on the piers, and these together with a number of people who were at the docks on business and visiting the ships scattered in all directions. As all means of exit were cut off by the flames they were forced to jump overboard and no doubt a great number of people were drowned. At the docks for the North German Lloyd were the Saale, a single screw passenger steamship of 4,063 gross tons; the Bremen a twin screw passenger and freight steamer of 10,526 tons and the Main, a twin screw freight and passenger steamer of 12.200 gross tons. They all caught fi re and wore burned to the water's edge. The Kadser_\Yjllielm tier Grosse, which had just come in. was the only one of the four big vessels at the dock that escaped. The fire was discovered by a watchman on the pier at four o'clock. He saw a small streak of flame shoot from a hale of cotton on Pier No. 2. at which was docked the steamer Saale. lie immediately sent In an alarm. In a few minutes the flames had extended to the steamship and were communicated to the adjoining pier on the north. Here were docked the Kaiser Wilhelm dor Grosse and the Main Tugs were immediately made fast to the big Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse and she was gotten out into midstream with safety, although badly SCOrch. il Ml thn Iiawo Tl'" ? -1 ... ...? .."i-o, im aii>llll.1lli|l Min. however, was doomed, as the flames had already become so fierce on the northside of the pier that no tug rould approach the vessel. Then, by a shift in the wind the flames were sent in tli'* direction of Pier No. 1. which was to the south end of Pier No. 2. To the north of Pier N >. 1 was the dock of tiie Hamburg-American Line, at which the steamship Phoenicia, a twin screw passenger steamer of 7.7?il gross tons was docked. The flames got a good hold on the Phoenicia, and she was towed out into midstream ablaze. The officials of the Hamburg-American Line then derided that the only way to prevt nt a total destruction of their grett pier was to blow up the - ide of the dork at which the Phoenicia lay. and this was done. A number of barges docked at the pier also took fire, but in the effort to save the other property, no attention was paid to them and they were allowed to burn.

The worst falo will conic from tlm steamship Main, which was unable to bo towed from the pier. The vessel had only arrived iti Hie morning and some passengers were still on board, and when the cry of lire w.. raised a number of them \\t re se? n to run to the br. ning decks. Most of Shorn jumped overboard, and. save for the few who were picked up by tho tugs not cne has been heard from, nlthough every hotel and hospital In tincity of liohoken ia crowded with injured. Some of the passengers of the Main tried to c rape to the pier, and it \va* almost certain that they penished in the tlamos. There was panic on each of the ships. Many persons jumped overboarff and ihe water for some distance along the docks was lined with people. They were clinging to the piers aqd even to the rudders of the burning vessels. Some were picked up; many wore drowned. Peter Quinn, a justice of flie peace in Hoboken, tells a story of having eeen at least 30 pe pie p.*-ish. He said: "I was standing on the end of one of the Hamburg-American Line pier? and saw about thirty people crowd under Pier No. 1 of the North German Lloyd. They were calling to some of the passing tug-boats, but their appeals were in vain, and when the flames got near to them they dived into the water. There was no assistance near them at the time, and 1 bellev.e everyone was either drowned or perished in the flliniPR " About 200 people were rescued at the Hamburg-American Hue pier. They were much overcome from exhaustion, but soon revived with stimulants. lly 7 o'clock the three piers of the North German ldoyd Steamship oCmpany had been burned to the ground. The SoulVern end of the Campbell stor age company building, consisting of five structures caught fire and the flames shot from every window from the two floors 'in but a few minutes. The buildings, being filled mainly with jute and whiskey, burned rapidly. The firemen were unable to go within fighting distance and the fire had pretty much its own way t^ere. In these buildings great loss will bo sustained. AN EGO IT.3 IT. Wrote Her Name on the Shell, and the Other End of the Story Is in Cuba. Tort Podge.
