Ellis Island Fire 1897
Fire On Ellis Island
It Broke Out Shortly After Midnight in the Furnace of the Main Building.
The Fireboat New Yorker And Police Boat Patrol Have Gone To The Scene.
Communication With Island Was Cut Off-It Was Reported that All Persons Escaped With Their Lives.

Fire broke out in the main building of the United States Immigration Station, on Ellis Island, shortly after midnight. It was first discovered from this city, when the flames began to shoot out from the northwest tower. This was at 12:30.

From that time on the fire ate its way ravenously through every part of the big structure, and at 1 o'clock the roof could be seen to fall in with a crash that sent the burning embers flying far into the sky.

From the first all communication was cut off from the island. The telephone there is located in the main building and just behind and inside of that portion which seems to have been the point where the fire originated.

The building itself is one that seemed to invite an internal fire. It was constructed entirely of Georgia pine and spruce, but on the outside had a tin covering of galvanized iron.

This was almost at once warped and twisted out of shape by the intense heat, and the docks, cook-house, official residences, and other buildings, with one exception, were soon wrapped in flames.

In fact, it looked as though the entire island, with the single exception of the male dormitory, which was the old United States Government powder magazine, seemed one big blaze.

There were many immigrants on the island, and several ships landed large numbers there yesterday. It is believed that over 600 immigrants were there.

The police boat Patrol, the fireboat New Yorker, and several tugs have gone out to the island, and are doing everything possible to overcome the fire.

Meeting of the Chicago Edison Co.
Chicago, June 14.-The annual meeting of the Chicago Edison Company was held to-day, and the old officers and Directors were elected. The affairs of the company were reported in a prosperous condition.

From the immediate available returns on the new bond issue the company has expended $2,267,000, retiring $1,020,300 debentures, first mortgage bonds, and market street purchase notes, and $1,246,700 for the purchase of additional land.


Ready To Change The Power.
Underground Trolley Awaits Only the Letting of Contracts.
President Vreeland of the Metropolitan Street Railway said yesterday that since the State Railway Commission has granted the company's application the work of changing the motive power on Fourth, Sixth, Eighth, and Madison Avenues would be pushed as rapidly as possible.

All the plans for the change from horse to underground trolley power, he said, have already been completed, and a large part of the electrical plant has been placed in the cable power house, in Twenty-fifth Street, and preparations are being made for an electric power station at the foot of Ninety-sixth Street. The contracts for the actual work of construction alone remain to complete the preparations.

The work on Sixth and Eighth Avenues, he said, has been checked by certain legal questions. He and the counsel of the company will go before the Sinking Fund Commission Thursday to try to adjust these questions, so that the change of motive power may be pushed rapidly. If the delay on the west side continues, the material brought together for the work on Sixth and Eighth Avenues will be transferred to the east side and used for making the change of power on the Fourth and Madison Avenue line. It is possible, therefore, that the trolley cars will be put into operation first on the east side.

President Vreeland said that he expected that the change of motive power on all these lines would be completed before the end of this year.


Born on Brooklyn Bridge.
The first child born on the Brooklyn Bridge came into the world there yesterday morning about 3 o'clock. It was a blue-eyed boy, and he weighed nearly seven pounds and was robust and healthy. His proud mother is Mrs. Lulu Hobbs, twenty six years old, of 762 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn. Dr. Holmes of Hudson Street Hospital was summoned to attend Mrs. Hobbs in the ladies' waiting room in the New York end of the big structure, and therefore, the surgeon claims, the boy is a Greater New Yorker. Mother and child are at the Hudson Street Hospital and are doing well.

Caring For Immigrants
New Arrangements in consequence of Yesterday Morning's Fire on Ellis Island.
Inspections On The Piers
No Life Lost and Nobody Hurt-The Government's Loss About $500,000
-Immediate Appropriation for New Buildings Expected.
The destruction of the Government buildings on Ellis Island, used for the reception and inspection of immigrants, will cause inconvenience, but no serious loss, except to the Government. Arrangements have already been made under which it is believed that the immigration machinery will work smoothly and rapidly.

Commissioner General of Immigration Stump arrived here yesterday afternoon from Washington, and at 7 o'clock last night was on the island, after a conference with Dr. Senner, the Immigration commissioner for this port. When he returned from the island Col. Stump said he was convinced that the management of the fire, the conduct of all the officials on the island, and the arrangements already made for the future were all admirable. They received his full approval, and were, in his opinion, creditable to all concerned.

Many steamships are due this week, and they have more than 7,000 immigrants aboard. The Friesland with 170, the Ems with 456, and the Aurania with about 100 are expected to-day. Commissioner Senner has arranged to have each vessel met at her own dock by an ample force of his men. The inspections will be conducted on the piers. Acceptable immigrants will be passed immediately. The sick will be sent tot he city hospitals, those with contagious diseases or requiring disinfection going to Quarantine. Those detained will be lodged in the barge office at the Battery.

Loss Not Over $500,000
Commissioner General Stmup[sic] thinks the loss will not exceed $500,000. He will ask Congress for an immediate special appropriation of that amount for new buildings. He has no doubt that it will be granted, especially as the Immigration Bureau has always been self-supporting. It has now $225,000 to its credit unexpended.

This balance, the Commissioner said, will not be used for new buildings, but he is sure that the bureau can easily and quickly repay any money given for such purpose if required to do so. The Commissioner added that so far as he has influence he will insist that the new buildings be brick or stone and as nearly fireproof as it is possible to make them.

Like Commissioner General Stump, Commissioner Senner is delighted with the conduct of his subordinates on the island and with the general management of the affair. Dr. Senner was on the scene soon after 1 o'clock yesterday morning, and took personal charge. He says everything had been so well done, however, that he had only to look after the details. The closest inquiry shows that not a life was lost, and that not one person was injured or suffered serious bodily harm.

How the Fire Started.
The fire was discovered at 12:38 o'clock by Watchman Gaines. There were 191 immigrants on the island, 55 of them in the hospital and 136 in the dormitories, including several Hindus and a number of Mormon girls. The night force of officials and helpers consisted of Superintendent Burke and 6 regular and 2 temporary watchmen, 2 engineers, 4 firemen, 2 laborers, a matron, an apothecary, a cook, 2 doctors, 3 hospital nurses, 3 railroad watchmen in care of the baggage, and 3 employes[sic] of the restaurant.

The steamer John G. Carlisle lay at the ferry slip with steam up, as she is required by her contract to do, and three watchmen on duty. She was connected with the buildings by an electric alarm wire, according to rules. Dr. Senner said yesterday that he had always known the big building to be a fire trap, and had taken all those precautions for that reason. The building was supplied with automatic sprinklers and many fire plugs, with regulation rubber hose and nozzles attached, and an ample supply of water from the steam pumps in the power house, but no confidence was felt in these arrangements.

When Watchman Gaines, who was in the main building, was led to the fire by the smell of smoke, he saw a blaze in the tower nearest the Battery. The statistics branch of the Superintendent's office, containing many papers, was there. By the time he had shouted "Fire!" and run to give the alarm, the flames were racing along the walls and floors up stairs.

He does not definitely know where the fire originated, and in what place. Both Col. Stump and Dr. Senner are in the same plight. "We have no theories," said the Colonel, and so far as I know now an investigation into the cause will be useless. There is nothing to investigate."

Saving the Immigrants.
The night force immediately began work. Superintendent Burke led some of them into the dormitories, and the sleeping people were aroused. There were symptoms of panic and hysteria at first, but they were sternly repressed. Mr. Burke knows just enough Italian to say "come quick." Most of the immigrants were Italians. As a group was aroused and dressed, it was put in charge of a man who led, drove, or pushed it down to the boat.

At the hospital the nurses, doctor, and attendants worked like machines. There was not a word or exclamation to excite or alarm the patients. All were thoroughly wrapped up before being lifted or assisted out. E.R. Brandow and George B. Emmons of the Carlisle were the litter bearers, and they carried patient after patient to the boat without even jostling one of them. The long shed leading to the ferry slip sucked in the fire from the main building and was soon ablaze. It was pulled and pushed, and fell down, and the patients were carried out over it, although its tin roof was nearly red hot.

By 1 o'clock the last person was safe. Dr. White's family, in the surgeon's quarters, was the last gotten away. It consisted of two ladies, several children, and a servant. Much of Dr. White's furniture was removed. The removal of the immigrants to the boat did not take more than seventeen minutes.

Lines of hose were run ashore from the fireboats and steamers, and firemen fought the flames until daylight. The electric light and steam plant was saved without a scorch. The surgeon's quarters are standing and can be restored. The walls of the record office and kitchen are standing. Everything else is ruin-a tangle of charcoal, battered and rusted iron, and ashes, from which smoke was still lazily rising in clouds all day yesterday.

Most of the Records Recovered.
Commissioner Senner was surprised and delighted to find yesterday afternoon that fully two-thirds of the records in the records office had been found, more or less damaged, but yet useful. The safe of the railroad office was opened, and all the paper money in it, estimated at $200, was found to be destroyed beyond hope of redemption. The silver and gold were melted, and all the papers were gone. On the other hand, the safe in the money exchange office of F.J. Scully had kept its contents, probably$6,000 or more, intact. Not a paper or note was even scorched, and coins of many nations were taken out in tin pans and dumped into bags as good as when they left the mints.

There were many small individual losses, none of them, of course, covered by insurance. All the minor officials lost their uniforms, some of them just purchased, which had been left in the building.

Of the 136 people taken from the island, the 55 sick were sent to Bellevue, 69 were released and went to their friends, 22 were sent off on outgoing steamers, 33 men who have been excluded or are detained are quartered in the upper story of the Barge Office, 12 women and children, who are detained are comfortable at the House of Our Lady of Hope, which also sent cots for the men. Leo House also offered accommodations, and gifts of clothing from several sources have made all the rescued people fairly comfortable. It is not likely that any of their losses are very serious, as most of them carry their money and valuables on their persons. Commissioner Senner said last night that those who lost baggage will probably be paid for it by the Government.

Omaha, Neb., June 15.-The officials of the Union Pacific Railroad have received a communication from Eugene V. Debs relative to his co-operative commonwealth scheme. The proposition must be reviewed by the General Manager's Office. Debs desires a large concession of land, embracing many hundreds of acres. The railroad company has plenty of land in that country, yet the kind Debs wants suitable for an agricultural community, as well as commercial enterprises, is valuable and on the market at good figures. The matter of transportation for the members of Debs's company will be arranged as with any other colony desiring sales but with the land-donation proposition it is different. It is and always has been the policy of the Union Pacific Company to donate lands for colonies to a limited extent, and to encourage immigration by such means along its lines, but the Debs scheme is much more elaborate than the company has ever been called upon to deal with before.

He Painted Harvard's Statue
Howard Dunning of Cedarhurst, L.I., Publishes a Confession.
Cambridge, Mass., June 15.-Howard Dunning of Cedarhurst, L.I., a first-year special student, has confessed to the desecration of the pedestal of the statue of John Harvard on May 29 in a public letter. He says: "I sign this letter with my name, as I cannot face the position of sneaking through college life with such a concealment.

"I love Harvard, and I worked hard there. I painted the score upon the pedestal of the statue of John Harvard, but I never intended it for desecration, although I now feel that the student sentiment was just. After some time I may wish to visit the university; if so I should have no pleasure in meeting friends whom I thought would not be friends if they knew the truth. I should rather have the friendship of one fellow in the university who knew of this act and forgot it than the friendship of the whole university, if this friendship was based on ignorance of the fact."

Settling The Immigrants.
Arranging Accommodations at Barge Office-Government Will Reimburse Losers by Ellis Island Fire.
The immigration officials were busy all day yesterday settling their new official household in the Barge Office. The day and night Customs Inspectors have doubled up, and the detained immigrants are distributed in what were formerly used as offices. The Shipping Commissioner and Matron Boyle are still in their old quarters.

Superintendent Hickey of the seizure rooms has contracted his quarters so as to have space sufficient only for valuables. Other abandoned or seized goods will be placed in storage, excepting perishable goods, which will be sold at once on the piers.

Several of the damaged safes were brought over from Ellis Island yesterday.

There were 489 immigrants on the Aurania, Bremen, and Trave, which arrived yesterday morning. They were passed upon at the respective piers, and only those who were held for examination by the Board of Special Inquiry, fifty in number, were taken to the Barge Office.

The eight Hindu itinerant merchants whose goods were destroyed in the fire at Ellis Island were informed that the Government would recompense them for their loss, as it will all who lost clothes and baggage.

It will be two weeks before the bureau will be settled, and the arrangements will be made on the presumption that it will take a year to rehabilitate Ellis Island.

Trying A Submarine Boat.
Mr. Raddatz Gets Improved Results and Avoids Using Coal.
Oshkosh, Wis., June 18.-The Raddatz submarine boat, elongated and with stronger machinery, was launched to-day, and made a successful trip. It was found necessary, after a number of trips had been made, the first time she was put into the water, to add to the dimensions of the boat in order that more powerful propelling machinery might be carried.

Mr. Raddatz has been in Milwaukee for some time building a large engine of his own invention, to which power can be applied without the use of coal. Thus the smoke is done away with while the boat is submerged. The various parts of the propelling gear, after being set up in the engine shops of E.P. Allis & Co., in Milwaukee, were packed in small boxes and shipped to this city. The boxes were not opened until safely deposited inside the cigar-shaped hull, in order that prying investigators might not learn of Mr. Raddatz's valuable secret.


Saving Mount Washington.
How New England People May Keep the Axe from Their Forests.
Boston, Mass., June 18.-The announcement that one of the great lumbering concerns in Northern New Hampshire had added to its already enormous holdings by the purchase of Mount Washington has caused much lament at the prospective denuding of the mountain of its forests. It appears, however, that these fears are groundless. The company, which has come into possession not only of Mount Washington, but of the entire Presidential Range, the Bartlett Lumber Company, shares the regard felt by the community at large for the monarch of the White Hills, and desires to co-operate in saving it.

Manager Smith of the company proposes a popular syndicate for the purchase of the mountain-in fact, of the entire Presidential Range-whereby the axe will be averted and the mountains be preserved in their grandeur. His idea is for every person in New England to put in a dollar, thus rasing a fund of $5,000,000, wherewith to accomplish the purchase of the 70,000 acres comprised in the range. Mr. Smith is not exactly decided in his plan. In fact, the wish is at present father to the thought, but he is in earnest in the idea and hopes to see it carried out in the near future.


Very Hot In St. Louis.
Temperature 96 at 4 O'clock in the Afternoon-Heat Prostrations.
St. Louis, June 18.-At noon the temperature was 92, and at 4 P.M. It was 96. Since Thursday noon the city ambulances have had fifty-two calls for heat victims. The nights remain hot and to this are charged many cases of prostration.

Eleven persons were overcome by heat to-day, and all the cases are serious. The names are: Charles Boet; C.O. Bach; Hattie Grant; George Reifschneider; Henry Schirmer; Thomas Caine; Henry Haldenburger; Henry Wisezski; Chris Haberburger; August Seehausen; and G.W. Moore.


Traffic In Children
Chicago, June 18.-Mrs. Lizzie Murphy of 784 Van Buren Street came into the County Court to-day to assert her claims to the custody of a little girl, and in doing so makes charges against Robert Curran of New York City which are looked upon here as serious. Her story, which is believed here by the Visitation and Aid Society and the Humane Society as well, is that Curran brings children from New York, finds homes for those he can, and, after selling the most desirable, leaves the rest at 113 Adams Street.

Mrs. Murphy answered an advertisement by Curran, and got into communication with him. She says he referred her to 113 Adams Street, and told her to make her choice of the children she found there. Those she saw there were below three years of age, and not the sort she wished to adopt. Curran then told her of Charles Casey, who, he said, could supply the child she wanted.

Sure enough, she found a girl, May, and took her home. Curran told her no references would be necessary. Three days later Curran, she says, came with a demand for $6. She paid $2 and promised the rest. She did not see him for two years.

Eighteen months afterward Casey got possession of the child. When she wrote to Curran he told her that if she paid the $4 she would not have lost the child. He agreed, however, to furnish another; also that she must meet him at the station with $6. Mrs. Murphy introduced a letter to prove that May was cruelly treated.

She says Curran carries a card of the New York Foundling and Orphans' Home. Hearing in the case was deferred until next Friday.


There is no New York Foundling and Orphans' Home, although institution s with names very similar are in existence. The New York Foundling Asylum is at 175 East Sixty-eighth Street. The New York Orphan Asylum is at Riverside Avenue and West Seventy-third Street.


Winnipeg School Question.
Canadian Minister Leaves Ottawa to Effect a Settlement.
Ottawa, Ontario, June 18.-Clifford Sifton, Minister of the Interior, left for Winnipeg this afternoon. It is understood that he goes in connection with the school question. When Merry Del Val, the Papal delegate, was in Winnipeg, he pressed on the Catholic clergy the desirability of accepting the school settlement. They have agreed to do so, provided they can get one further concession. It is to see if this can be done that Mr. Sifton has gone West to see the Provincial Government. If possible the concession will be made, so that the schools may be satisfactory to all parties. Just what point the Catholics want cannot be learned. But it is said that it does not in any way make any departure from the public school system. Premier Greenway has always said that he would be willing to do anything that he could to assist the Catholics, providing they accepted the common schools.


Capt. Hart Surrendered.
Bondsman of the Laurada's Captain Asks to be Relieved.
Philadelphia, Penn., June 18.-Capt. John D. Hart, convicted of filibustering in connection with the steamer Laurada, who was admitted to bail pending an appeal for a new trial, was surrendered to-day by Robert J. Barr, one of his bondsmen.

The petition in which Barr asked to be relieved as surety was heard before Judges Butler and Dallas in the Circuit Court of Appeals, and was granted. Hart was remanded in custody of the United States Marshal pending the acceptance of new bail.
