BRENNAN NOTIFIED.
Klllott's Slayer Informed or the Adverse
Action of the rardoii llonrd.
Thomas Rrenuan, now awaiting tlio day
named by Governor Stone for bis execution
foi tho murder of Harry Klllott, at New
Philadelphia last June, wat visited In prison
yesterday by his counsel, Messrs. James
r lanigan and (leorge Dyson, and informed
the Pardon Hoard had refused to commute
the death sentence to Ufa imprisonment. It
was an unpleasant task for the attorneys.
who have worked so zealously in llrennan's
behalf, but they were somewhat surprised to
discover that the condemned man was the
most composed of tlio threo when the infor
mation was imparted to him. Ho hail little
to say, beyond that he expected no clemency
at the hands of tho Board of Pardons. Bren
nan has evidently nerved himself for the
worst, and his demeanor and compose is a
surprise to nil. He is ever courteous, has
few wants and is not the slightest trouble to
tne prison oOiclals.
Immediately after Messrs. Flanigan and
Dyson bad left Brennan, the latter's aged
mother visited the prison, and was at once
shown in his coll. The meeting of the two
was most effect I nit. the mother's grief helm:
inconsolable. Brennan nerved himself for
the ordeal and made a bravo effort to console
his grief stricken mother, but she would not
be comforted, and wept as though her heart
would break. Brennan, too, was tuovod to
tears, but bore his trying position well. What
passed between mother and son, tho outside
world need not know, Suflico it say any
mother can imaglno if she could but place
herself in a similar position.
Ooveruor Stonobas named January 18th as
the date for Brenuan's execution. Whether
this date will be changed is as yet not fully
determined, although it is probable an exten
sion of time may be asked in order to permit
tho prisoner to prepare for the end.

Tlmpe. Addlo Kutterer. Josephine
llohme and Margaret Warner. All
theee were between 0 and 11 years ot
age.
Helen SoebblnR and several other
teachers, Father Nicholas and Profes
sor Frank MMshold were painfully
burned in trying to save the children.
The fire staiteI In a little dressing
room. Three or four little girls were
there dressing for the rehearsal ano
laughing gayly among themselves. A
dozen others were grouped In th6
wings of the stage, near the foot of the
stairs descending from the dressing
room. The girls In the dressing room
had nearly completed their costumes
when one of them brushed against a
gas Jet. but which one it will never
he known. A touch of the flame was
sufficient, and In an instant her dress
of cotton and light cloth was In a
blaze. She screamed and ran out of the
room, communicating the blaze to the
others as she ran.
One of the Mrls, with her dress In a
blaze, Jumped out of a small window
Into the stairs leading to the stage,
and then down the stairs. A flaming
torch she was, as she almost fell down
the stairs and rushed Into the groups
of children standing in the wings.
They were all clad like her. In fancy
costumes of cctton. lace and silk, and
the fire spread with Incredible rapidity
from one to the other. There were
14 children in the cast of the Christ
mas entertainment and only a few es
caped. It war ail over In ten min
utes, aud In that time four perished,
seven were fatally burned and others
more or less severely injured.
The chlldrer were panic stricken and
rushed this way anil that, screaming
with pain. But the agony was brlof.
Only a few minutes and then four of
them sank to the floor dead. Others
fell, too, but they still lived, suffering
excruciating agony.
Tho school hall was filled with chil
dren, and many moro would have been
killed In the panic which followed had
It not "been for the prompt efforts of
the teachers and Bisters who were In
charge of the entertainment. The
children were in a panic for a few
minutes and lushed for the doors, but
prompt efforts quieted them and no
one was hurt in the rush.
The shrieks and screams of the In
jured were agonizing The little ones
lay helpless :uid Impotent on the floor
and writhed atmut In their agony. The
dead were charred in most cases be
yond recognition. The home of peace
ful pleasure had In a', instant become
n charnel lmnpe The dctrs flitted
nbo'it on their missions of mercy, seek
ing to supply soothing lotions to those
who were still alive and seeking also
to cover the charred bodies of the dead
with blankets or other covering.
The excitement Inside the building
was soon intensified with the situation
without. The crowds congregated In
an Instant, and parents soon camo
searching anxiously for their little
ones. The landing at tho third floor
was a combination of hospital and
morgue. Besides the miny patients
within the smoke stained walls, them
were dozens of fn'n'.'ng end heart
broken women without. They scream
ed as some of the scenes came to them,
and if the child or loved one was
among the deid or woti"r!ed their grief
gained the m8te-y and there was a
collapse which required the attention
of the doctors
