morgue. Four bodies were taken there and five to the house of Engino Com
pany No. A. which Is located not far from the fire. County ‘Physician Mc
Kenzie was notified, and after vtewtn g the remains permitted their removal
i ■ Mii!Hn‘s morgue.
Word that the bodies had been moved spread through the crowd and
relatives and friends of those employed in the building rushed for a sight of
their loved ones. Within a few minute - the morgue was surrounded by a
throng heating ago hist the police like waves on a ledge of rocks.
Arts of extraordinary heroism were performed by the score. Three priests
•rom St. ruti-ick's Cathedral—Fathers Kernan, Dillon and B.ennan—fought
tli. ir way Into th. blazing structure against the protests of persons who saw
them, and gave conditional absolution to the dying. All narrowly escaped
the fate of those they sol g’it to suobor.
A score of clergymen of all denom nations hurried to the scene when they
were informed of the extent of the horror and administered comfort and the
last rites of the -huroh to the dying. There were many notable displays of
courage by these clergymen, who bru.ed flames and failing walls to reach
the side ol the dying
Firemen fought with each other to be allowed to enter the blazing struc
ture So fill.’, were th" flames, hi waver, ladders placed against the building
burned like matches, and the w rk of rendering aid to the trapped employees
w?is disastrously hindered.
In the meantime every window of ‘he building was* filled with hysterical
rif.r. and women. The life-nets were spread, and many were eaved by leaping
into these.
Several of those who leaped toward the nets misjudged the distance and
missed striking them, fading to the pavement. It is estimated now that at
least half a dozen were killed In this manner. Be- i were burned while
in the building, out far more met their death in lead's from wlr ' vws. Some
of the flicrr.en were lnjur'-l perhups mortally, by being struck by falling
hod-es. Nearly 1. of the victims were gins, employed In the box factory.
A short time after the firemen were on the scene every hospital ambu
lance and patrol wagon was on the scene. The morgues were also notified,
and the work of removing the bodies proceeded.
There ar already at the City Hospital thirty victims of Jumps from win
dows and several of these are mortally hurt. The other hosnltals also are
receiving the Injured the list of which will greutly exceed that of the in
stantly killed.
At noon four of the injured girls taken to the City Hospital had died.
The building where the lire started Is a four-story brick structure, occu
pied by seven manufacturing concerns. These are: Blevins Manufacturing
Company, machinists, employing thltty hands; New-ark Paper Box Company,
70 hands, all women; Wolff Manufacturing Company, Kn h-- ’ : Anchor
Lamp Company, ten hands: Drake, Mars & Co., fifty hands, and Aetna Elec
tric Company, fifteen hands.
The women employed were the first to leap. Those killed were all from
these workrooms.
At the first cry of fire the girls employed by the Wolf Manufacturing
Company on the fourth, to; fio or, started for the w-indows at the
north side ot the structure, furt best from the blaze, and beg n Jump
ing. Some cf the gills hud brought their hats and outer coats with them,
and, throwing them from the windows followed. In a deathlike stillness the
first two or three 'eaped, but in less than five seconds the living wlnrow of
writhing bodies between the burning building and the one-story prick struc
ture formed a cushion for those who leaped. The impact of each body was
followed by shrieks of gu y.

The blaze started in the southern end
of the building, and driven by a high
wind, the flames swept through the
floor like a prairie blazt. The narrow
hallways were almost instantly con

Harry Weberbauer, of 45 Leslie street,

assisted eighty girls trapped In tiio

only fire-escape on the structure and
succeeded in attracting the attention
of scores of girls to the mode of escape
the your.g women had overlooked in
their frenzy
The building in which the fire start
ed is the estate of John ii. and Eliza
beth Glass.
Many of the girls, including the dead

of the Harvey II. Reese Company, when

ago. At that time they lost several
weeks'wages and then secured employ

Miss L. Wolf, the forewoman in the

against a possible explorion, always
made 't a point to handle the gasoline
herself, and was doing so at the hour

The young woman, while stunned and
frightfully burned about the arms and
face, managed to grope her way to
the stairs and out ot the building.
Almost instantly the third floor was
in flames, which spread through an

As soon as the fire was sufficiently j
under control to make a superficial ex- i
amlnatlon of the ruins a thorough in
spection was made by President T. E.
Burke and Commissioners Weber and
Begay, of the fire department.
President Burke -feeiared In his Judg
ment the terrible loss of life was due to
other cause than a mere accident. The
Fire Commission, Mr Burke declared,
would make a searching Inve-tlratlon
regardless of v hat the prosecutor’s
| office may do, and endetvor to discover
whettv r the fire department, through
i its department of combustibles, the
local building department or the State
factory Inspection department is to
blame for the shocking loss of life
Commissioner Bagay expressed a sim
ilar view, and afl agreed that It was
a shocking exhibition of carelessness at
least on the part of somebody to have
a building of that character equipped
with only one fire-escape, and that ?f
an antiquated type. i
/’oupled with the use of gasol'ne fdr
nL .bufacturlng purposes on the thl/i
floor, the lack of fire-escapes made the |
fourth floor, with it* 150 girl opera-]
tlves, a veritable fire-trap. The de
partment of combustibles of the fire
iepartibent has control of the use of
gasoline In quantities.
The local building department and
the State factory inspection depart
ment are jointly charged wltW seeing
►hat all such factory bulld'ngs are
properly equipped with fire-escapes.
Supreme Court Justice Hwayze re
cently cherged th" Hudson county
grand jury that the owner of a build
ing is responsible where dentil occurs;
through lack of proper fire-escapes or i
other precautions required by law.
Barbara I,. Class Is the owner of;
the property from 216 to 228 High
street, on which the building stands !
where the awful holocaust occurred.
The building, which w. of an an
fient type, was erected In 184S and has 1
been regarded as in the ramshackle
:lasf for soul’ time.
The tenants, apart from Wolf & Co., '
ihe shirt waist manufacturers, p-nd
the Anchor Lamp G.inppny, were:
John C. Bleveny, n;.. hlni t; Newark
Paper Box Company, Gordon Supply
Company, Drake-Murrison Paper Box
Company and the Aetna Electrical
Company, manufacturers of lamps.
Tills afternoon David Levy and Al
bert Wolf, members of the Wolf Manu
facturing Company, called at the City
Hospital and asked to see Miss Anna
Hoge, the forewoman. They were ad
mitted to her ward.
Upon leaving the hospital Mr. Wolf
stated that he had talked to Miss Hoge
and that all she could tell him about
the fire was to the effect that she and
the girls were at work when she heard
a crash, a bell rang and flame and
smoke burst through the floor. Sha
gave the order to run, according to
Mr. Levy, and the girls took the order,
running panic-stricken through the
room and precipitating themselves
headlong from the windows.

One of the first to arrive upon the
scene of the disaster was the Rev. J. C.
Howard, of 42a James street, pastor of
the Halsey Street M. E. Church, and for
many years chaplain of the Richmond
Borough fire department.
Dr. Howard lent aid wherever pos
sible, and after the Mazo went to St.
Michael's Hospital, where lie talked to
and comforted a number of tho injured
In reply to questions, they told him
the smoke had been so thick they risked

air to be the greatest voting campaign
sver witnessed in the city. An inter- .
sting and friendly btruggle for posses
ion of these magnificent libraries was
nauguratecl in Newark last week. The
:oveted prizes have been on exhibition
n the COwperthwalt and Van Horn
Company, 78-76 Market street, the past
veek, and have been seen by many
housand people. These valuable and
4 ell selected libraries are being con
ested for by the numerous religious
ind social organizations and schools of
ne city In a popular voting campaign,
ull particulars of which have been and
vlll be published In the Evening STAR
n display advertisements. The first

hat great interest Is being taken in the

jer of votes in the first count would
3e given any prize selected by the

The full-page display advertisement,

read, so that all may become perfectly
familiar with the details of the cam
paign. The following suggestions are
made for the benefit of all workers:
First—Organize a library club, com
posed of as many members as possible,
who will give their systematic atten
llon to the work of vote-getting.
Second—A committee should be ap
pointed for the special purpose of see
ing that every borne affiliated with
their organization gets a copy of th«
Newark Evening STAR, so that they
may keep posted on the progress of
the campaign and may be able to clip
all of the votes from the Evening

zation falls to do this It will be at a
great disadvantage.
Third—A committee should be ap
