Cracks May Be Suspended by the
New Racing Board.
Chicago. June 9.— Amateur cyclists]
are on the gui vive for a sensation in
the way of the suspension, of several
crack riders by the new ratine board.
That body has not yet had an oppor
tunity of swinging its ax, although it
lias had that instrument of decapitation
well ground since March last. The
board has been busy collecting evi
dence, circumstantial and otherwise,
and some big heads are expected to fall
when the snickersee lights. A few
well-known cyclists will be expelled
from the league. W. W. Taxis, the
Philadelphia racer, is one of the first
men to be questioned by the racing
board regarding his expenses. Taxis is
charged with having his expenses paid
by a Massachusetts bicycle manu
facturer, nnd has been requested to
make an affidavit explaining the source
of his income to defray his training ex
penses. There are about half a dozen
other men. Including J. b. Johnson, of

SLID DOWN TUB HOSE.
Novel Means of Escape From the
Washington, June 9. — The hair's
breadth escapes related by survivors
were numberless. One of the most
thrilling scenes of the whole affair was
the sight of a dozen men who were lert
In a corner of the third story, clamber
ing down a hose pipe to the ground.
One of these men, and the first to get
down, was E. Baier, who worded in the
center of the third floor. The story cau
best be told in his own words:
"I was at my desk," he said, "when
1 heard a great roar. There was no
premonitory trembling, or any kind of
warning; just a roar and crash, and the
desk and tables seemed to raise up in
the center of the floor and then disap
pear in a blinding cloud of white dust.
I sprang for the rear window aud
called to my companions to follow.
Those who were right near me did so,
and we gained a safe place at the rear
of the building near the windows. We
were completely isolated, however.with
no way to get down. The floor had
sunk beneath us in front, and the build
ing was still trembling from the shock.
We did not know what minute the rear
of the structure would go down, and
stood there almost frantic. Then I
thought of a reel of fire hose that 1
knew was near by. We groped through
the blinding dust and quickly unwound
it until the end touched the ground.
Then I caught hold of the hose and slid
down it,alighting safely on the ground.'
Two Men Who Stood on the Brink
Washington, June 9.— Five minutes
later and J. M. Imbrie, the Pennsyl
vania chief in charge of the second
floor would have gone down with the
wreck. He had a desk in the shattered
area and also in the rear of the room.
He had been at the former place and
then came back to the other desk, and in
about five minutes the crash was heard.
Tnen a silence followed aud Mr. Imbrie
said he heard no sound. He rushed
toward the rear windows, and found
men jumping out. Several men made
the perilous leap, but he supposes that
they fell on the awning over the lower
door, thus breaking their fall.
Another narrow escape is found in
the experience of J. D. Nevins, of
Texas, whose desk was located in the
fallen section on the second floor. He
had gone to the third floor on some er
rand and returned, and had entered the
door aud was about to go to his desk
when the cra6h came, and he stepped
back. One minute more and he would
have gone down with the rest.
S. S. Baker escaped with a bad scalp
wound. He was at his desk on the
third floor front. The crash came, he
said, without a moment's warning. Half
stunned and dazed, lie found himself in
the cellar, pinned down with debris and
covered with plaster, furniture and
chairs. He extricated himself as best
he could and crawled out one of the
windows. It was fully half an hour be
fdre he recovered himself, and even
now can hardly account for his escape.
His coat was torn to tatters.
HEARD XHK CRASH.
An Account of the Scene Detailed
b y an Eye Witness.
Washington, June 9. —S. Dana Lin
coln, who occupies a room of the At
lantic building, facing the rear of the
theater building, gives this account of
the scene. He was sitting at his desk
at the time of the giving way of the
floors, lie says he heard a noise as
though of dumping of bricks in the
alley. He looked out of his office win
dow and aaw clouds of dust arising
to the top of the binding. Immediately
at every window dozens of heads pro
truded, wildly calling for assistance. Lt
seemed ten or fifteen minutes before
the firemen appeared with ladders
which were immediately run up to the
windows. In reality the time was only
a few moments. The firemen rescued
all those who had not escaped by jump
ing Iron: the windows. The last man
taken out of the building alive was Capt.
Dowd, of Indiana. He was found near
the southwest corner of the building
covered to a depth of two or three feet
with brick and mortar. He had lain
there for three hours, but a falling beam
had lodged near him in such a position
as to break the fall of the brick and tim
bers, and when lifted up he raised his
hand, snowing that he was conscious.
When he was lifted into the Uarneld
hospital ambulance the crowd saw that
he was alive and cheered again aud
TAKING OUT THE VICTIMS.
Faces of Many Covered From the
Gaze of Bystanders.
Washington, June 9.— The ambu
lances were kept busy carrying away
the dead and injured. The faces of
many of the victims were covered with
pieces of cloth, an old coal, a iiews
paDer or whatever could be had, but
some of the mangled bodies were car
ried out with their faces exposed to the
gaze of the great throng that surround
the building. All during the long hours
while the workmen were working with
all their strength to rescue sucli as were
not past help, the mothers, sisters and
daughters of those that had gone down
hovered around the front of- the build-
i ii tr, and with streaming eyes inquired
of all whom* they met of some tidings of
their dead ones, home could hardly be
restrained trom pushing their way into
AN AWFUL. SCENE.
i Many Crashed Out of All Sem
i blance to Humanity.
Washington, June — A look into
i the interior told a sickening tale of how
! some were. taken and others left. Desks
were seen half toppling over the brink
: of the broken floor; ■others stood up
right, but the chair which stood beside
v and its occupant went down with the
j crash. Records and papers. were scat
! tered everywhere, but as fast as pos
■ sible they were gathered up aud saved.
i •Many.of them were spotted with blood.
i That anyone should have escaped with
| his life seems the work of a miracle. As
I they were brought forth they presented
! a spectacle that no one seeing it will
ivr forget. In many cases the sem
j blance to humanity was gone. It j
I seemed as though the helpers were car
rying out mere bags of matter smeared
, a.l over with blood, filthy with dirt, dirt |
'ground into them, blood on their faces.
; A wife could not have recognized her
husband in that condition. With such
derness as rough and excited men
fould summon at such a time, they were
laid out on stretchers and carried to tne
ambulances that rilled the street from
! Kto F streets. All the doctors could
Uu for them there was to clear away
' some of the dirt, the plaster and tilth
, from the faces of the injured men. In
! -ninny cases the dirt was ground into the
iiyes, noses and mouths so that without
such attentisn men might have suffocat
ed. Many were unconscious and could
not have help2d themselves. With a
; clanc of the bell the ambulances start
. t'«l oft for their hospitals. These were
.scon overcrowded.. Drug stores were
turned into temporary hospitals. Peo- ;
-pie in the neighborhood of the accident
: opened their doors right gladly, and the
dead and the wounded were hurried, in.
' . DEVELOPED hiROES.,
' ' rjured Men Rescue Many of the
; More Unfortunate. :
i Washington, June 9.— When the as*;
cident was over, and before the rescuers
could get inside to their relief, there
were injured men who were caring for
their worse injured brothers. There
were tnen who did not rush for the
street to save their own lives. Regard
less of the fact that more walls ftiight
fall and bury them once more, they
staved to succor men who could not get
away by themselves. A man, whose arm
was crushed, used the other arm to drag
a man from that place of death. - Men
stayed to struggle with beams and
rafters that bore down upon their fel
lows. They spoke words of cheer when
their strugges were in vain.
When the first of the relief corps
entered the building, they were
especially struck by the silence that
prevailed. There were no cries to be
heard from beueath the debris. If. any
cries were made, they were stifled by
j dirt and mortar that made almost a solid
j floor on which one might walk. Men
I did not walk upou it more than they
could help, however, for no one knew
but what he might be standing directly
above the bodies of the dead, or above a
man iv whom life still existed. Nerv
| ously aud excitedly they tore away
beams and rafters that made n tomb.
it was a horrid task; it was a dirty task.
Men worked like demons, with sweat
pouriug down their faces. The dust
and the dirt lay thick upon their faces,
i so that one could scarce tell the color of
! the men. The trim uniforms of the
firemen were ruined and battered, but
never did they stop in their noble work.
PLENTY OF HELP.
Men Work With Energy in tho
Work of Resone.
Washington, Juue 9.— Every mo
ment the throwing aside of wreckage
exposed the blooay, aud often muti
lated, form of some one of the victims.
Occasionally one of them revived suffi-
I cieutly to need but little assistance to
the outer air, but the majority of them
—dusty, bruised, with their clothiug
torn almost in tatters— were carried into
the clear atmosphere and through the
sorrowing crowd to the ambulances and
patrol wagons that were in waiting. At
first the efforts to rescue were most
inefficient, but in a little whilt system
prevailed, and the work went ahead
with the utmost rapidity. W eary res
cuers gave place evwry few minutes to
fresh and willing successors, who worked
with terrific euergy in their endeavor
to save some of the buried ones.
As the bleeding and mangled bodies
were brought out groan 3 and outcries
arose ou all hands. The surrounding
houses, drug stores and business places
were tilled iv a short time by bleeding
and groaning men. As a mangled body
was brought out, in nine cases out of
ten it would be surrounded by weeping
friends. The persons who were evi
dently dead were laid aside, while those
who possessed life were brought out.
One mau was found sticklug head first
into tho debris. His feet were seen tirst.
Soon they had uncovered his legs, which
moved feebly, showing that he was still
alive. As fast as human hands couid
work those rescuers did, and soou they
had the unfortunate man out. lie was
alive when he was brought into the air,
but he died beforeJie reached the am
bulance iv the street. This was but one
of the many shocking sceues attending
the most horrible and inexcusable acci
dent that ever occurred iv the city of
Against the Work Which Caused
Washington, June 9.— The general
opinion is that the accident was caused
by directly weakening the 1 already weak '\
structure by reason of excavations made
beneath it for an electric lighting sys
tem. It was stated this afternoon that
' several days ago the clerks in the build
ing circulated la petition protesting;
against this work being continued, as
they considered ; that it imperiled the
life' of every man who was' working in
the building. -This afternoon the firme
men turned a stream of " water "into:
the building. This was done to lay the
dust, so that the work of clearing away
the ruius could be better accomplished.
A dyed-ln-the-vvool government clerk
objected to this procedure, because, he
said, the place was stored with impor
tant government papers, which would
be ruined by water. A man who. was
standing beside him shouted back ex
citedly: ,<, .:■-; '"-
"We don't care ad— for the papers
of a government that lets its clerks work
I in such a trap. , It's men we're trying"
to save, not papers. . . j

the sight was one horrible to behold.
The little building, in which was one

not near large enough to hold tho dead
bodies brought from the wrecked build
ing. When the morgue was tilled the
stable was turned into a reception room
for the bodies. Blankets were spread
on the floor, and the remains were laid
out as respectably as possible under the
circumstances. Blood from the bodies
formed a large pool on the floor, and
the crushed skulls, broken arms and
legs made the scene indescribable.
Then there were some of the victims
who had not been crushed . They had
been smothered, and the discoloration
of their faces and necks gave visible
evidence of the cause of their death.

CONDITION OF THK BUILDING
Made Known to Congress as Far
Back as 1885.
VVashinotov, June I). —An examina
tion of tlie oflicials snows that the inse
curity of th« building was brought to
the attention of congress in a pointed
manner as far back as 1885. Attention
was then directed simply to the safety
of the army medical library and mu
seum. The protection of human life
was not especially brought in question.
S. M. btockslaaer, of Indiana, who was
chairman of the committed on public
buildings and grounds in the Forty
eighth congress, made a report in favor
of the construction of a new building
for the museum and library, in which
he said of Ford's thuater, then used for
"The building now used by the medi
cal department for a library and
museum is not only too smali to contain
the records of the library and museum,
but is unsubstantial and disposed to di
stinction by fire."
When the bill was before the house
for its consideration Feb. 10, ISSS, Mr.
•■There is a medical museum, the
most complete in the world, the result
of the greai war. which is now kept in
the old Ford theater building, a build
ing totally inadequate to its safe-keep
intr. a mere tinder box, surroundt-d by
wooden buildings, and liable to be de
stroyed by fire at any time. I visited it
a short time ago in company with tho
surgeon general, and the building is in
an absolutely dangerous condition. The
building was originally put up under
ar con tract in ninety days, and was very
badly constructed". The east wail is
more than twelve inches out of plumb.
The southwest corner of the buildinn
has given away until there is a great
crack in the building, and th« officers in
charge have been prohibiting from put
ting heavy articles In the upper story
for fear of pressing out the west wall.
It is indeed in a tumble-down condi

pose government clerks to risks from
which they shielded skeletons and med
ical books. From a responsible gentle
man, who yesterday took a look at the
work going on under the doomed build
ing, this statement is obtained:
"As I passed the 'building, Capt. M.
R. Thorp, chief of the bureau of sup
plies of the war department, seemed to
be directing some work, and 1 stopped
to see what it was. There was a brick
wall running from the back of the
building to the middle of the lower
tbor. which it supported. A number of
workmen were- excavating under this
wall for the purpose, as I was told,
of putting in au independent electric
light plant, and they were preparing to
support it by underpinning. It now
seems very evident to me that as they
undermined this brick wall, the first
floor gave away; the second lloor, being
supported by columns which rested on
the first lloor. collapsed also, and the
third floor collapsed in like manner."
FIXING THE RESPONSIBILITY.
A Thorough Investigation Will Be
Made- at Om:e.
Washington, June I).— As soon as
Secretary Lamont returns to Washing
ton steps will probably be taken to
thoroughly investigate the cause of the
disaster and to fix the responsibility, if
the coroner's jury does not anticipate
the department in that direction. The
collapsa of this building has directed
earnest attention to two other great
public buildings believed to be in an al
most equally unsafe condition -one the
government printing oflice, where 1.800
people are employed; the other is the
rickety shell known as the Winder
building, also belonging to the war de
partment, and occupied by hundreds of
clerks of that department aud the sec
ond auditor's otlice. This place is no
toriously dangerous, and the Moors are

to congress for years, but receiviug no
Building Inspector Entwisle, who has
two assistants. was on hand shortly after j
the cave-in occurred. lie said that last i
wek application was made to him for a j
permit to underpin the building, but he I
declined to gi»e it, as it was a govern
ment building and came under the direct
supervision of the federal officers. In
fact, he had no jurisdiction over the
government buildings and was prohib- j
ited by law from interfering. The cause 1
of the whole affair, he said, was un- 1
doubtedlydueto the underpinning. The i
workmen dug under the heavy upright |
column which supported the building
Bud the collapse followed. One of the
workmen, a colored man. who was «mii
ployed iv excavating the cellar and who j
escaped with only slight cuts, says:
•H told them yesterday that the arch- I
way would fall," for every time any one I
walked over the Moor it would bend."
William N. Funk, of the firm of Funk
«fc Funk, contractors and builders, was
cue or the first on the scene, lie said he
thought the wreck was caused by the j
faulty manner in which the work of j
underpinning seemed to have been con- j
ducted. He said he had noticed it sev- |
eral times during the last tew days, and |
no later than this morning had looked 1
at it. It did not seem to him that the I
work was being carried on in a safe j
manner. Mr. Baer said the building
had been notoriously unsafe for a long
time, and stated that it had been three
tunes condemned. He said the walls of
the building had been bowed out for a
longtime, "it is thought that when the
debris Is cleared away all the papers of
value will be recovered.
No More Bodies Remain in the
Debris of the Building.
WABHIHOYOK, June I 1 .— The last body
to be discovered was that of Dr. Nelson.
lie was buried beneath timbers in the
extreme front of the building and was I
removed shortly after 5 o'clock, The j
laborers did not cease their efforts until j
about 7 o'clock. By this time they had j
reached the bottom of the excavation in
the basement, and further search
seemed useless, as tbedebrJi in all parts
of the building hnd been entirely cleared
away. Some held that two labor
ers who were at work In tlio. basement
at the time of the accident were still
missing, but. as the search hail been so
thorough, nothing to warrant its con
tinuance could bo shown. But one
body, that of Dr. Nelson, was found
daring the last seven hours of the
search, and those in charge of the work
think it impossible that more remain in
the ruins. The work was therefore
stopped, the streets roped close to the
building and a police guard stationed
there for the nigbt.
RELIEF FOR THE SUFFERERS
Over $5,000 Subscribed at a
Washington, June '.».— Various plans
for the relief of the sufferers are on
foot. At a meeting of citizens this
afternoon $5,000 was subscribed. Presi
dent Cleveland, who had been asked to
preside over the meeting, but was un
able to do so because of pressing official
business engagement, sent his check
for SIOU. and Secretary Thurber his for
$25. The newspapers of the city are
actively engaged in the good work, and
the clerks in the departments are con
The meeting was called to order by
Commissioner Hose, and Commissioner
Parker was chosen to preside. With
but little preliminary the purpose of
the gathering was achieved in the ap
pointment of five canvassers for sub
scriptions in the meeting. While this
was being done brief addresses were
made by C. B. Warner, H»'v. William
Thompson, a clerK employed in the
collapsed building, and Bishop J. F.
Hurst. Dr. Bnrtiett's ringing arraign
ment of the government tor its
moral responsibility for the calam
ity met with th« * warm commenda
tion or the gathering, lie said
the chief olticers ought in BOOM way
to g»*t together and provide means which
shall secure to the suffering sorrowing
ones that care and support which a nig
gardly policy lias made necessary and
not .id ii d .1 "silv. r dollar upon this long

speech was largely devoted to abuse of
Col. Ainsworth. chief of the record and
pension division, whom he charged with
being the direct, active cause of lite
casualty, lie said large, fine, safe rooms
in the war departments building were
kept sacred for the storageo r Mate rolls
and documents, while for the employes a
building utterly unfit for clerical uses,
was crowded with clerks, many of
whose lives bad been sacrihceil by this
one man's dictum. The theater had
been a regular 'hell on earth." be said.
No earthly prison or jail was to com
pare with it in disagreeable features,
while the Insecurity of the structure
was notorious, having been condemned
no less than three times. Mr. Thomp
son stated that, although sixty-two
years old, he bad principally been en
abled to make a successful escape from
the second-story of the building by
means of a ladder.
It was stated at the meeting that tho
families of those who had been killed
had all been left practically unprovided
for in a financial way. A subscription
was started this morning in the war de
partment for the relief of the sufferers
and this will bt» followed by like meas
ures in the other departments.
