A TENEMENT HOUSE HORROR.
Twenty-Five Persons Dead---Suffocated in Their
Attempts to Reach the Fire Escapes.
New York, Nov. 2.--Twenty-one h
men, three women and a 10-months it
old baby w.re burned to death or suf- b
focated in a fire that started early yes- tl
terday morning in "The House of All b
Nations," a five-story tenement house tl
at 216 Eleventh avenue, which the po- p
lic. and coroner believe to be of in- f
cendiary origin. Some of the peculiar tI
features of the disaster in addition to re
the startling loss of life, are that the si
fire was practically extinguished in e
twenty minutes, the police could learn o
of but one person injured other than
those who lost their lives, and that the b
property loss was only $7,000. b
The dead are mostly Italians of the c
poorer class. s
The only person injured, so far as s
can be learned, is Mary Jane Quinn, t:
who was burned about the face and
hands and severely bruised by leaping s
from a second story window fire es- b
Several apartments in the tenement b
held Halloween parties and the guests a
added materially to the number of r
persons in the house and made the i
crush and jam to escape more than it t
ordinarily would have been. Although c
plentifully provided with fire escapes, i
the front and rear escape was cut off i
for a few minutes after the flre start
ed by the bodies of the dead becoming
wedged in the openings leading to the
ladders. The fire had been burning for
some minutes before it was discovered.
It had started in the basement, and,
rushing upward, had attacked the
stairway leading to the apartments. In
1a short space of time the flames had
so enveloped the stairway that egress
from the building by it was impossi
ble. The, house from the third to the
fifth floor was entirely destroyed.
eAt the windows, front and rear, bod
ies of men and women were jammed,
ehowing that a desperate struggle to
get out resulted in the complete chok
ing of the exits to the fire escapes, and

about 1,000 barrels per day. The sam

that the oil is of as good quality as
I that produced in the older fields.
This well was essentially a wildcat

t able incident occurred in this city yes

(3 five feet below. The animal was only

had been the cause of a number of the
inmates being suffocated. Lying in a
bed alongside a window at the rear of
the fourth floor, the firemen found the
bodies of five men. Each had clutched
the one next to him in an endeavor to
push him away in order to get to the
fire escaro outside. The features of
the men were distorted, some with
rage and two in agony. In two in
stances the men had gripped each oth
er so hard that blood had run down
over their hands.
On the fourth floor was found the
body of Maculeta Vingiguerro and the
body of her baby. The mother had
crawled to the front window and had
succeeded in grasping the sill when
she was suffocated. In her arms lay
the body of her child.
When the firemen reached the
scene there was a mass of flames
bursting through the middle of the
roof, while the air was filled with
heartrending screams of the women
and curses of the men. Many daring
f rescues were made by the firemen,
who at times had to use violence in
t their attemps to disentangle the mass
I of writhing human beings struggling
, in vain efforts to reach safety from
f the crowded fire escapes. One fire
- man climbed to the fourth floor, where
g a windcw was filled with a mass of
e people, jammed in and fighting to get
,r out. He struck the heads of all the
•. men he could see with his first and
1. they fell back. He then handed down
Le to the firemen on the ladder below
:n him three women and a baby. Anoth
Ld er fireman performed a similar feature
s| and rescued two girls from the fourth
3i- floor. Life nets nets played a promi
se nent part in the work of rescue. The
firemen dropped men and women,
d- dead and alive, from one floor to an
d, other and finally the men standing on
to the ladders on the first floor let them
ºk- fall into the nets held by policemen
ad and firemen in the street.
