LIST OF KILLED AMD atVBKoi
JnnsKT Orrr, N. X, May 87, A terrible
disaster, causing the loas ot four Uvea and
tho mora or less serious wounding of a num
ber of persons, occurred about :80 yesterday
morning. The tour families In Patrick An
derson's four-story tenement house, situated
on the west side of Colgate Street, Mween
First and Second Streets, were about their
usual avocations at that hour, when they
were startled by alow roar of eaenea at a
distance. Then followed the creaking of
timbers and the building began to tremble.
In another Instant, and before the new thor
oughly frightened occupants of theballdtng
coald realize what was happening, the build
lag collapsed. ,
It sunk down In the centre like a teto
scope, and a cloud of dust went up" in tbe
air. The shrieks of women and the ertea of
children, alarmed the neighbor, and the
vkslnfty was soon swarming with htrtasntty.
Strong hands and willing heart were
speedily engaged In the work of dragging
away the timbers, naming the living, and
taking out the dead. The scream id the
wounded, who were pinioned 'down and
crashed between the Umbers, were agpnutlng.
Immediately after the disaster an alarm
was given on the fire bell, and the firemen
quickly got to work and took out the dead,
the dying, and those who had by a miracle
escaped Injury. t
It has been learned at this writing that
four have been killed, three abildiea of Mr.
Anderson, the owner of the building, and a
young man named Hayes, aged seventeen.
Mrs. Anderson, who lived on the first floor,
had gone to tho grocery, to get something
for breakfast When she returned her boose

posing her entire fnmrry, dead. Ber hus

prison, was absent at the time. y
The eollopsed buHdtng was owned by Pat
rick Anderson, who, with his wife and five
children occupied the first-floor. Michael
Webb, wife and two children, the second;
John Coino, wife and fivo children, and
Patrick Corblu and fivo children jointly, oc
cupied tho third-floor. II. MeOIntey and
two children occupied the fourth-floor.
The killed are as follows: Mame; Ella and
Barney Anderson, aged respectively eight
months, eight years and ten years, Ander
son, the father, had just left the house for
kindling wood and his wife had preceded
bim a few moments to a neighboring gro
cery to niako purchases for the breakfast
The other victim was Michael Webb, a lad
of seventeen years, residing on the second
floor. He was crushed In a frightful man
ner, nearly every bono In his body having
been broken. r
Tho Injured, as far as can be learned, are
John Coyne, aged forty-eight years, badly
about the bead and face; Patrick Coyne,
aged nine, leg broken; Mary Coyne, aged
twelve, forehead badly cut; Bridget, Coyne,
aged thirty-three, badly bruised ' about the
body; Hugh McGlntey, aged twenty-five,
head and face badly cut; Mary Ann Mc
Glntey, aged twenty, slightly hunred about
tho body; LIzrie Hassey, aged", thirty-five
years, back badly hurt; Maggkv Anderson,
-seed tarehm. head and int h&e InlinwA.
The accident is attributed, to the rotsKg'
away oi uie pnes upon wnicn me nouse was
built All the Injured were cared for In the
various hospitals of the city.
A better type ot mantrap than the rickety
frame rookery that gave way could not be
found in any locality. The fact that tho
crash occurred on a calm, clear morning
proved the rotten condition of the structure.
'The firemen were astounded as titer hauled
away the half-decayed supxrtsot the floors
from the debris, and expressed themselves
as surprised to think that thestraetnre could
havo so long sustained the weight of so
The Chief of Police states that he was ex
pecting just such a disaster for a long time.
"Why," said he, "there are scores of shan
ties In and around that locality, tenanted by
numerous families. Just In about the same
condition as the one that felt This terrible
affair will, I hope, serve as a warning and
"hasten the authorities to adopt some means
by which any recurrence of such terrible
accidents may be prevented."
Mrs. Webb, whoso seventeen-year-old son,
iMichacl, lost his life by being crushed in
the ruins, Is terribly stricken by the loss of
her boy. Sho goes around like one bereft,
calling him by name and calling on God to
take herself out,ot the world. She stated'
that the first warning that she had
that the building was about to fall, came
to her In the noise of the crack
ing of one of the floor beams under the win
dow. "I ran down stairs," she continued,
"as fast as I could, and lust cleared the door
when the whole structure came tumbling
down about me. Tho last I remember of
ray poor boy was when he called out
'Mother, what la the matter? Where are
you going?' as I was rushing out"
The bodies were removed at once to tho
morgue, where they were laid out, awaiting
the arrival ot the Coroner. In and around
the morgue an excited crowd gathered,
clamoring for admission, but tho manager
refused to allow any person to enter not
having business in tho place.
Great sympathy Is felt for the fathersuid
saother of the Anderson family. They are
nearly frantic over the loss of their children.
The police formed a cordon around the ruins
of tho collapsed building, and no one was
allowed to approach tho ruins except the
tronien and thobocmplojed In clearing away
the debris. Tho Coroner will Immediately
summon a jury and hold an inquest

Burned Narrow Bacape of Inmates oT a
Tenement Ilooae Two Parsons Fatally
New York, May 28. The vast furniture
factory of H. Herman & Bros, at Margin
and Tompkins streets was discovered to be
on Are early yesterday morning. It was the
old building occupied by the Singer Sewing
Machine factory, and was saturated with
oil. The building Is surrounded by misera
ble tenement houses, occupied by the poor
est classes In the city.
The fire was intensely hot and nearly a
hundred families were driven from their
homes. They rushed out In their night
clothes, and were compelled to camp on the
river side, where they shivered In the chilly
winds of the morning. The flames spread so
rapidly that the firemen gave up trying to
save the factory, and directed their efforts
to the surrounding property, which seemed
In Imminent danger of being consumed.
Several extra alarms were sent out The
factory was filled with furniture, and the
loss will be very heavy, this being the busy
season. Over 300 men will be thrown out
of work. Loss about 8500,000.
Another disastrous and probable fatal fire
took place at 0.30 o'clock yesterday morning
at 250 East Fortieth Street Mrs. Emma
Derner was bumed probably fatally and her
baby, sixteen months old, was terribly
burned about the head. A fireman and a
young man named F. O'Conneil, were also
badly bumed. The fire was caused by the
explosion of a kerosene oil stove. The
wounded were carried to Bellevue Hospital
where the Injuries of Mrs. Demer and her
baby wero pronounced fatal. O'Connell's
wounds were very severe, but not necessari
ly fatal. The other man's name Is Lleby.
After his wounds were dressed he went
home. The loss is about 81,500.

original capital ot the company was wiped
out after two year's business, when an Issue
of preference stock was made. The direct
ors now claim that it another 850,000 Is sub
scribed tho concern can be made to pay, but
there Is not much chance ot the public in
vesting any more funds In an enterprise
which already swallowed up over a quarter
of a million. An immense business was
carried on by the society, the transactions
being mora than 84,000,000 a year. But tho
extravagant manner In which it has
been managed, has eaten up all profits.

J. E. EHRENHART.
Halifax, N. S., May 88. The Harold
yesterday morning published some detail oi
the romantic career of Adele, fhe daughtei
of Victor Hugo. The facta are furnished
by Robert Matton, Q. O., a wetl-knovrn
criminal lawyer, who acted for her profes
sionally on several occasions. Allele's story
as told by herself is as follows: When n
mere Klrl, living w itli her parents In Brus
sels, she became acquainted with a young
man, one Pinsen, belonging to a wealthy
family then staving In Brussels, and fell
madly In love with him. lie appeared
equally Infatuited with her.
They bocamo formally engaged and were
secretly married, as sho believed. Owing to
tho opposition of IMnien's family the affair
was kept private, and lie promised to make
hoi his wife publicly In duo time. Mean
while ho was gazetted Lieutenant In tho
British army and ordered to Halifax. Just
Rrevious to this ho wrote to her to meet him
1 London, where they would be formally
married, but before sho reached there Pin
sen had started with Ills regiment for Hall
fax. She returned to Brussels and shortly
afterward clandestinely loft home, resolved
to follow the man she loved so madly. Ar
riving In New York she made her way to
Halifax, and lived thcro for nearly three
vears. Piusen proved recreant but she
seemed to havo followed him day and night
and frequently declared to tho family with
whom she boarded that ho should never
marry another woman while she lived. She
was eccentric and never went out unless)
deeply veiled. At night she went out alone
In disguise, wearing a high hat, top booU
and carrying a stick.
Pinsen repudiated all knowledge of or
connection with Adolo Hugo, and had not
been hero long before he bocamo engaged to
a daughter of J, W. Johnston, then Pre
mier of Nova Scotia. This coming to
AdeltVs ears she confided her history in pro
fessional confidence to Mr. Matton, and that
gentleman sent a letter to the Johnston fam
ily and they Immediately broko off all so
cial Intercourse with Pinsen. Lieutenant
Piusen left Halifax with his regiment for
Barbadoes and Adele followed him. Some
years ago sho became Insane and was placed
In a private asylum either in New York or
Boston. The fate of the man who betrayed
her Is unknown.
