the scene. The engines caused a wild

In most instances the efforts to catch
them and break their awful fall were
unavailing, for they struck the side
walk and in most cases broken limbs
were the result. As soon as the fire
men could get their scaling ladders into
position they climbed the sides of thc-
tuUuing and entered at every window
where there was an unfortunate guest
appealing for assistance, and many
cases of heroic rescue were witnessed
by the throng In the streets. Several
occupants of the hotel appeared at the
windows of the sixth and seventh
stories, and even on the rcof, and
leaped to the streets from those points.
Very few of them escaped either in-
sl&nt death or injuries which resulted
in their death a short time later.
At the corner of Forty-seventh street
end Fifth avenue, directly across from
the hotel is the home of Miss Helen
Or.uld, and at her direction many of
the injured were carried there and were
treated by physicians and nurses whom
she had sent for. In the meantime the
entire building was being enveloped in
flames which shot out from every win
dow and formed a picture which struck
terror to all those who were witness
ing it. Within forty or forty-five min
utes after the fire first broke out the
walls on the Fifth avenue side showed
every indication of falling, and present
ly, with an awful craeh. they struck
the street. This fall weakened the walls
on the Forty-sixth and Forty-sevenUi
street sides, atid they followed a mo
ment later. When the walls fell the
brick and mortar and twisted girders
and corrugated iron filled the streets
on three sides of the hotel.

the French ambassador, called at the
state department yesterday and crucial
ly notified Assistant Secretary Hill of
the signing of the peare treaty by the
queen regent of Spain. The first news
of the signature of the treaty by the
queen regent was conveyed to Secretary
Hay and the officials of the administra
tion through the bulletin of the Asso
ciated Press. The secretary was nat
urally gratified at the action which he
had expected would follow the course of
the cortes. The action makes it possi
ble to exchange the ratifications and
thus -complete the treaty within the
time set by the treaty itself as the max
imum. Took Seven Month, to Complete.
The protocol was signed Aug. 13 last
at the White House by the president
and Ambassador Cam bo n Dec. 10; the
treaty was signed at Paris by the com
missioners Feb. 6, ratified by the United
States senate after a memorable strug
gle; Feb. 10 the president gave it his
signature and now, seven months and
four days after the signing of the proto
col, the Spanish queen regent gave her
formal assent and signature. Official
news of the action at Madrid was not
conveyed to the state department before
the close of the department for the day.
M. Cambon called at the department
about ten minutes to 4 o'clock and In
the absence of Secretary Hay called up
cn Assistant Secretary Hill. He told
the latter that he believed the treaty
had been signed.
Doe. Not Affect the Velunteera.
Contrary to an expectation that
eeemed to have obtained in some quar
ters the signature of the treaty yester
day does not involve the immediate dis
charge of all the volunteer soldiers. It
was stated positively at the state de
partment that legally the treaty does
not go into effect until the ratifications
have been exchanged, and it will further
be necessary for the president to pro
claim It before the people of the United
States, including the soldiers, can know
officially that the war Is over. In all
other respects, however, the state de
partment will treat the war as at an
Those Prisoners We Are Good For.
The signing of the treaty cannot in
any manner affect the status of the
Spanish prisoners in the handsof Aguin
aldo. for the United States government
Is doing all it can to secure their re
lease. Stili, it is apprehended that the
Spanish government being able to ad
dress itself directly to the United States
government so soon as the ratifications
are exchanged perhaps will solicit au
thority to resume direct negotiations with
the insurgents looking to the release of
the prisoners. If the Spanish govern
ment should insist on this, some dis
agreeble questions may be raised, in
volving the formal recognition of the
insurgents by Spain; in which case, per
haps, it might claim the right to deal
directly with Aguinaido.

One of the most thrilling scenes of the
fire at a time when the builidng was
a seething cauldron of flame was the
heroic rescue of several women from the
upper stories. One had been carried
down from the fifth story. Mrs. A. H.
Fuller, of Pittsburg, then appeared with
her n-.aid at the window of the fourth
story. It seemed an age before the lad
der was lowered. Firemen ran up and
with great difficulty brought down Mrs.
Fuller and her maid. Just as she was
gotten out of the window a middle-aged
woman appeared at a window just north
of that at which the ladder was placed.
The woman, fearing she would not be
rescued, prepared to jump.
She was warned to keep back, and be
came panic-stricken and stepped back
into the dense smoke. A hook and lad
der man seeing the desperation of the
woman seized a scaling ladder and went
up story after story through the blind-
ing smoke. He climbed to the coping
just as the woman reappeared. Seizing
her by the waist and holding tightly to
the wall of the building he crept slowly
on the coping and passed the fainting
woman to another fireman who had
braced himself to receive her. There was
a dreadful suspense as the firemen crew
the woman toward him and finally had
her safely on the ladder. A tremendous
cheer went up from the crowd.
The cause of the fire was a lighted
match thrown on a lace curtain by a
man who had just lighted a cigarette.
The hotel occupied a block one way and
200 feet the other. The loss Is $1,000,
000. with $675.000 insurance.

The prattling and cooing of the little ones offset a thousand times the
