HORROR IN DENVER.
TWENTY LIVES LOST BY AN
Jioiler Eploln in the Rear Part of the
Ganrcjr House Fire Adds to the Hor
rorMany Kescned From the Window
Una to an Intoxicated Engineer,
Pkxver, Col., Aug. CO. About 12:10
o'clock this morning a terrific explo
sion occurred in the renr of the Gumry
hotel, 1725 to 1733 Lawrence street, a
five story brick and stone structure, in
which were between forty and fifty
people, most of them asleep. The
building was almost completely
wrecked and surrounding1 buildings
were badly damaged.
The fire department and many vol
unteers were soon on the scene and in
lrllf an hour five persons who had oc-
rcupitv upper rooms were, taken out
more or less injured. Then the mine
caught lire and firemen and others who
were trying to rescue, those buried un
der the debris were forced to retreat"
while c ries and moans were heard is
suing from the midst of the ruins.
To add to the excitement, a hose
team ran away and several persons
were trampled upon and injured.
Live electric light wires were also a
constant source of peril for a time.
When the liremen were driven back
by the flames they had almost com
pleted the rescue of two women and
two men, but nothing more could be
done and soon all four were beyond ull
All night long1, the firemen poured
water on the burning debris and as
soon as the flames were driven away
from one section, the work of rescue
Uoe Munal of Cairo, 111., was rescued
at i:30 o'clock, after an hour's work,
4lJli it is c.. i, lit. that no more of the
' victims ean be r.live. l'olice Surgeon
Jarecki took his place where he could
keep Munal's head moist and properly
attend to him while his lower limbs
were being extricated. It was a po
rtion of great danger for all, on
account of the flames and the over
hanging roof, which threatened to
come down at any moment. Hut the
men worked on hauling at beams with
ropes and using every device to clear
the space arouud the suffering man,
who bore his agony with great bravery
and cheered on his helpers. At last
about 3:30 o'clock a great cheer
arose and word was spread among tho
great crowd waiting outside that the
work was fiulshed. Soon firemen and
citizens appeared at the entrance bear
ing Munal cm a stretcher. He was
conscious but suffering great agony,
and the physicians expressed little
hope for his ultimate revival. When
he revlve.iV,- btt.said: "I am a cigar
maker and have been in the city for a

what it was and got out of bed and

THE DEAD AND THE 5IISS1NO.
At 10 o'clock the fire in the ruins
hud been extinguished, and the search
for the dead whs begun, a large force
of men and teams being engaged in
hauling away the debris. At 1 1 o'clock
one body, which was not identified,
had been removed and several more
were in sight.
The dead so far as ascertained are
Peter Gumry, owner of the hotel.

E. F. McCToskey, Canon City.
Judge Glinn, Leadville.
The whole rear half of the hotel was
blown to atoms and the front portions
are merely shattered and burned frag
ments of a house.
There is no doubt that the wreck
was caused by a boiler explosion.
Frank Loescber, the enginer, it is
said, was intoxicated, and after turn
ing a large quantity of cold water into
the hot boiler left the building ten
minutes before the explosion occurred.
The police are looking for him. K. K.
Irwin, the night clerk, says Loescber,
who was only 17 years old, was drunk
when he went on duty, and that he
was in the habit of neglecting his

Chicago, Aug. 20. At the meeting
last night of the Armenian National
union for the election of officers, a riot
broke out and people on the street
heard the snind of a fierce conflict, of
flying chairs and furious voices. Then
suddenly the noise was hushed
and down the stairs came nearly
100 men. Some of them were blood
stained, (hte, with his head bound in
a handkerchief, appeared to be nearly
insensible, and had to be carried down
by his companions. There was scarcely
a man without a black eye or some
mark of conflict.
After the riot had subsided the po

the leaders and no arrests were made.
None of those injured were thought to
be fatally hurt.

passed through a furnace of burning
forests for a distance of ten miles Sun
day night, when at Little Spokane

from the mountain above. The en

stop so suddenly as to throw the pas

The burning tree was dragged par

So intense was the heat from the for
