The flames couM not be checke?!, and In two hours from the lime that the Iii.- bn ke out the entile structure was In ruins and the streets on three sides of the building were tilled with debris from falling walls and tall chimneys, while the streams of water being pour? ed Into th(. interior of the ruins had no other -fleet than to nil the air with clouds of scalding steam, making it imp.'.-siide for anyone to approach near enough to search for missing bodies. S PECT AC ULAR E FFE< 'TS. The lire was the most spctnc?lnr that could he imagined. When it broke out Fifth avenue was crowded with people wan hint,' the St. Patrick's Day parade, which was passing the building as the lire broke out. and .-very window in the from ,,f the hotel facing Fifth avenue, was tilled with spectators watching the nun and floats in the street. An unusually large number of people ui i.- on the streets, und Interfered not a little with the movements of the lire iiir-n and police. the hotel the windows were crowded by a large number of spectators, residents | ? >r this city, who had congregated then to witness the parade. Tili: FLIGHT FOR SAFETY. Soon after the first alarm was given people in the lower doors of the hotel, thOSC Who had easy access to the stl and stairway, commenced to pour out j of the building in great numbers, hut it very soon became apparent that n| great majority of the occupants of the hotel were either panic stricken or un? able to mako their way to the ground Moor. Windows were thrown up every side of the building, and glie mostly women, made frantic appeals| for assistance to the crowd below. HEROIC RESCUES. Finally some of thorn st tod upon the narrow window sills and beckoned the spectators that they were about to leap to th.- streets. The men collected upon ihe sidewalks ready to render any assistance they could. Some of the women dropped to the streets. In most eases tie- efforts to catch them and break their fall were unavailing, and broken limbs were the results. As ns the firemen could get their scaling ladders into position they (limbed th< sides of the building ami entered at every window where there was an un? fortunate guest nppenllng for assist? ance, ami many cases of her rescue were witnessed by the ihren:,' In the strcets. A.t the corner of Forty-seventh I street and Fifth avenue, directly aero? from the hotel, is the home of Mis Helen Gould, and at tier direction many of the injured were carried there and were treated by physicians and nurses Whom she had sent for. HOSPITAL All? SUMMONED. In the meantime the Chief of Police | had telephoned to every hospital in Ihe city, asking that assistance be sent V the fire sufferers Ambulances forced | their way through the crowds a: uuiekly as possiblennd the injured wer. removed to the hospitals. Several oc cupants of the hotel appeared at the windows of the sixth and sevenSfc Stories and even on the roof, and leaped to the streets front those points. Very few of them escaped either Instant death or injur.es which resulted in their death a short time later. AX AWFUL CRASH. Within forty or forty-/lve minute.-; after the fire broke out the walls on the Fifth avenue side showed every indication of falling, and shortly, with an awful crash, they struck the asphalt covering of the streets in front of the Tut i= leer flic Chair. MRS. PLACE AND THE DEATH CHAIR. The crime for which Mrs. Martha M. Place received the death sentence was committed In Brooklyn on Feb. IS!'*, anil was one of the most brutal on rec? ord. Mrs. Place killed her Stepdaughter, Ida Mildred Place, by Minding her with carbolic Acid and tlien smothering her with a pillow, she then lay In wait for her husband, whom she assaulted with an ax. inflicting dangerous injuries. In the course of the operation of the law she was convicted of murder In the lirst degree and sentenced to death. The finding was unanimously sustained by the court of appeals, and eminent medical experts declared that the woman was sane. Upon being appealed to for executive clemency, Governor ROOSC velt refused to interfere with the execution of the sontence. hotel. This fall weakened the wall? on the Forty-sixth and Forty-seventh Btreets sides, and they followed a moment later. When the walls fell the bricks and mortar and twisted girders and corrugated iron tilled the streets on three sides of the hp tel. Tbc doorsteps ftnfl Iron fences In front of the houses on the opposite side of the street from the hotel were wrecked by the falling walls, and the amount of debris piled In the streets was so great that travel will be Im? peded for several days. The northeast wing of the hotel continued to burn for half hour after the wallt; of the other part of the building fell. Firemen continued to play streams upon the flames, and also upon all the adjoining buildings, including .Miss Gould's resi? dence, which seemed in imminent dan? ger of catching lire, but the flames were brought under control before they could reach any of them. TIIIO FIRST DISCOyBRY. A ball boy discovered the flames while he was passing along the fourth floor. Immediately over the rooms oc? cupied .. President McKinley'* bro? ther, Abner McKinley, and his family. The boy pulled a chain attached to the lire alarm, but the chain broke, and then he cried out an alarm of tire and ran to the floor below. The blj-.'.o was then licking up everything on the fifth avenue end of the building, and the lad. when he got to the floor above- the io,'in hall, ran Into the American din? ing-room and gave the alarm to the guests there, Only a few guests wore in the dining-room at the time, and they escaped. When the boy readied the main Hour Wat-ran F. Leland, the proprietor of the hotel, was in the rear .if [lie long hall, and the boy shouted to him that the building was on lire. i)n Mr. 1.eland's instructions the clerks tried to save all the books and papers. The boy then rushed down the basement stairway and alarmed the women who were at work in the laun? dry. It is b llCVed that ail of them es? caped. A DARING REPOT P.. One of the most daring rescues ef? fected by the firemen occurred on the fifth floor on the Fifth avenue front. An elderly woman was seen at a win? dow, and two firemen succeeded in reaching the window Immediately un? derneath, one of them climbed to the coping of the window on which she was stau.ling and then stopped over to the woman, lie swung -her ch ar of tin window and landed her safely in the arms of Iiis companion, who, with the assistance of several other firemen, passed the woman down to the street. | THE FIRST HORROR. The first horror occurred just fifteen minutes after the fire broke out. A handsome woman appeared at the Win? dow of a room on the fourth floor. She; held out her arms to the crowd below. Then she raised her hands as if in supplication, and in a moment climbed to tiie window and leaped. She turned a)),.ut like a top. and struck the Iron railing in front of the hotel. Her body seemed to be impaled there, but It teil off and into the areaway. She was dead. The woman was identified as Mi ? Amelia Paddock, of Irvlngton, n. y. A THRILLING SCENE. One "f the most thrilling scene's of the lire?at a time when the building was a seething cauldron of flam<?was the nerole rescue of several women from the upper stories. One had been carried down from the fifth story. Mrs. A. II. Puller, of Pittsburgh, then ap? peared with her maid a: tin- window of the fourth story. It seemed like an age before the ladder was lowered. Pit. m. n ran up and with great diffi? culty brought down Mrs. Fuller and her maid-. Just as she was gotten out of the window a middle-aged woman appeared at a window just north of that at which the ladder was placed. (Continued on Sixth Page.) GATHERING OF LEADERS j Speaker Reed En Route to Jekyl \ island. ? . ?< Will Ho Followed by Proaldeill Mc? Kinley, Vico - President Ilolnxn mid SrnalOk- HailUH?A 11 approach mom Probable. (By Telegraph to Ylrglnlan-PllOt.) Brunswick, Ga., March 17.?Speaker Thomas B. Reetl and daughter arrived to-day from Washington. Their com? ing was unheralded. They reached Brunswick on an accommodation train of freight and passengers ears, and were en route to Jekyl Island. Their stay In this city was short. The Speak? er was asked by the Associated Press correspondent what was the purpose of his visit. "liest, simply rest," said the Speaker. Then In a running talk of brief dura? tion, he gave out this statement: "There is no political significance at? tached to my visit. I did not know that my coming would attract any attention at this time, l did not stop at Thomos villc. My stay will he for a few days. There is lio one In my party except my daughter. There is not to be n gathering of men prominent in national affairs on Jekyl island during the time 1 am there, as far as I know." The above- was in substance answers to questions propounded and answered in a concise but not unfriendly man? ner. When the subject of the recent New York Beiden dinner was opened,, he stated that the affair was purely so? cial. At Jekyl Speaker Keed is the guiesl Mr. John f.. Moore, of New York, lie will remain several days and will not go before Tu. -day next, if then. GATHERING OP LEAOERS. The significance of Speaker Reed's visit to Jekyl at this time is giving rise to much speculation. Especially is this true in view of the fact that informa? tion, through reliable channels, has been received that the President, yicc Prcsdcnl Itobart and Senator Mark Hanna will arrive on Jekyl on Monday next, during the time that Speaker Keed is on the Island, and thai the Presi? dent's party will be entertained by Cor? nelius Bliss. The extremely cautious manner In which Speaker Reed reached Brunswick and the fact that it was given out in New York Thursday night that he was en route to Maine after the Beiden Supper, coupled with the fact that the dispatches from Thomasville have said the Presidential party would not leave for Jekyl until next Friday, are re. garded here as pointing to an undis? turbed meeting between the President artd his managers und the Speaker, with a view to arranging an approach mcnt. A FINE RETREAT. There could be no finer retreat fr.i politicians and public men than Jekyl Island! It is situated in the Atlantic ocean, six miles from Brunswick, and is owned by a club whose exelusivenesn Is proverbial.

The Presidential mail is growing rapidly, the people be? ing well acquainted now with Mr. Mc? Kinleys whereabouts. The statement cannot bo made too broad that it Is the President's wish that communica? tions on business and Other matters be sent to Washington, whore attention will bo given them, the present trip being solely f n play and rest and not work. THE PRESIDENT SHOCKED. The President was shocked to hear of (he frightful holocaust of the Wind? sor Hotel, New York, and grateful that all the family of h!s brother Aimer had escaped unhurt Judo,.

The party remained at Mel rose until; between :! and 4 o'clock, and then drove Into town again, after a delightful day in the Holds and woods of an old-time Southern plantation, built up under Northern enterprise, Tlie sun shone, clear from a cloudless sky, and the weather was as warm I as in early May in Washington. The trees were sending forth their foliage, r-ut beyond a fo ,v fruit blQBSpm* no flowers wen in bloom, the recent cold .snap having killed them. Tito Presi? dent transacted a little business, and then rested till dinner. There was no ospectal ?

Most of the rebels' arms were hidden or thrown Into the river. The engineers threw a temporary j bridge across the Pasig river for the artillery and commissary trains. VIEW OF THE SITUATION. Hong Kong, March IT.?The following general View of the situation is from a correspondent of The Associated Tress nt .Manila, and has evidently not been BJjbJcj-;r.l censorship: "The most reiuuikable feature of tne Situation is the Inability of the Ameri? ca rw and residents to estimate the numb, is, resources and plans of the Filipinos! Prominent Generals think that two or three disastrous battles Will break their spirit and make them suo for terms. A majority of the English and other residents are of the opinion Unit the extermination of th* Tagalou IS the only guarantee of peace; that they can easily be whipped It they give battle, but that they will dodge a meeting with the Americans In force. . S. ine people think they will risk bat? tles .\i Malabo 11 and llarnnaquc, whore ihcy are strongly entrenched, and that If they are defeated they will resume bushwncklng as Ion* as any of them are left. THE END KAU REMOVED. United states Contttt Williams sayn: "l don't-expect to live to see the end of the war." - ? ?The rebels shift about so much that it is Impossible to estimate Choir iium bers.^ The correspondent questioned several Qenerals as to the number of the reb? els and ;h<' replies ranged from 20,000 to inn.(.no. The estimates of the quan? tity of arms possessed by the rebels are equally uncertain. The best au? thorities say ::o,00O. Large sections of the armed natives arc ignorant of the use of their weapons. The country beyond the American Ilm s is rice ii (Ids, cane and brush. The rebels are familiar with every Inch of It, and It affords tine biding places. THE TRIBES. The residents say the Tagalos are unanimously rebels and they predict, the Americans will be resisted at Mln dorn and Mlndanoa and that they will be obliged to subdue them. The extent of the support which the other Luzon tribes are giving Aguinaldp is 11 mystery. It is known that several regiments were und. r arms before the outbreak, but the majority of them are supposed to be jealous of the Tagalos, who are reported to be treating the lards, dominating the Island and hold? ing all the oftt< es. Reports from the rebels are to tho effect that Ihe recent tactics of the Americans In retiring t>> their estab? lished lines aft.r pursuing, makes the rebels think they are winning victo? ries. REBEL ORGANIZATION IN- .MANILA The Oriental character Is bo deceptive that the residents of Manila are Ig? norant as to whether their own ser? vants sympathize With the rebels or hot. It 's known that a rebel organi? sation exists in the city, and the ovl di nee la growing that there waa a widespread pi >t to assassinate the i Americans, the signal being the com? mencement of hostilities. The servants I were Instructed to kill thedr employers, 1 but they were terrorized by the ven i geance dealt out to offenders and they weak tied. Every Tegalo would have cut his employer's throat if he dared, or at least this Is a current saying. The faithlessness of the natives is Il? lustrated by the action of the eom# missioners ? ho came here to offer the allegiance of the island of Negros. it la now known that they were in frlend lv c ?mmunlcation with Agulnaldo while here. Tho rebels have been re-supplled with ammunition, und are using smokeless powder, A VARIETY OF FLAGS.
