A number of people received minor

1'en families occupied Hats in the
building. So great was the force of
tin* explosion that a boy plaviug in
the street half a block away was lift
ed from his feet and hurled against
an iron fence. One of his legs was
broken. A trolley car was directly
in front of the building when the
explosion occurred. . The burst of
thiine blow n out into tin* s’reet
scorched ihc sides of the car and
singl'd th»' hair of the passengers.
\ numl*»*r of those who were on
the up|M*r floors of the building when
tin* explosion took place were either
stunned and then burned to death,
or found escape cut off and were suf

there wa> a succession of smaller ones,
and then came a second big explosion,
which was muffled and deadened and
probably occurred in the cellar.

the loss of life and property, hut
officials of the coal corporations lo

Repeated effort* to locate Secretary
Hay by wire were futile until the
ewrly morning hours, when a request
from the father reached Mr. Seth
Mosely, the proprietor of the lioteL
to take care of the body until tlie
members ol the family could reach

casioned by the tragedy continued.

some days. He arrixed in New Haven
Saturday evening in time for dinner,
and went immediately to the New
Haven house, where he was assigned
to Itoom No. 17, third floor front,
directly over the Chapel street en
trance to the hotel office.
I h ere x\ as a solitary spec tutor to
I the terrible tragedy, n laborer on the

the workman sn\x- the form of a man
falling through space. An instant.
Inter the body lay directly in front of
the main hotel entrance. The hor
rified laborer rushed to the spot, and
his shouts brought others. The usual
crowd gathered. In it were several
Imbued Vale graduates. They bent
over the body. One of llieiii. Julbtii
Mason, a son of the late Kdxvard (J.
.Mason, of ( hicago. and a classmate
of young Hay, drew hack, and, hor

clerk had reached the scene and
made the identitiention complete. Thu

On tin* xvindoxv sill of the room oc

Here the mystery becomes infnuglble.
I lie popular theory seems to haxe i

for bed, thought to indulg* in a
"good night smoke;" that he choose
the cool of the window, possibly
dozed, lost his balance and fell fcom
the window. The presence of the
ring on the floor, however, gave rl»«
to the fancy that possibly while lov

that in an effort to recover it, the
fall resulted. Hiaxevcr it happened,
