The battle was commenced whe.i Director McCros key, with his index finder upon an outspread map, declared tin- inten tion was to re-locate the school upon the s.ot indicated. At this juncture Charley Vande venter ins. mated that Mct'roskey was misleading" them in regard to tlu- exact spot of the new site. Mc lioskey indignantly denied Hie charge, whereupon Vandeventer by a well directed blow struck him down. McCroskey was up in a moment and sei.in the larjjrc oil lamp upon the deck raised it above his head with the intention ol luiriiii"- it at his assailant, but Finally replaced the lamp in its pr per place.

The structure did not move a foot from its foundation. It simply flat tened out, as though struck a terri ble blow from above. Three tin ners on the roof renained where the3rwere and escaped serious in jur3", though the fall was thirty eight feet. Hl'XDKED SAW THE CATASTROPHE and the work of rescue began at once.
