Nrw Yoe.K, Au-URt 24 -Four murder-
ersof women- rutrickl'ackeiihiim, Jack
Ifais, f colored), James Nolan and IVr
oiiiand (.rolin, were handed in the vard
of the Tombs prison yesterday. Ther
. ie mo hcaiioms aim two men wen;
handed on each. IV-keiiham and Nolan
were first executed 011 the acaffold which
was erected on the Franklin street side
of the prison. The drop fell at G:53
o'clock. Liht niinntes later Lewis and
Carolin were han-ini; from the seaftold
on the Ix'onaid dtrect side.
The sheriff and Fader Sheriff Sexton
entered the prison at 0:r,.'i, followed by
twenty deputy sheriff, all in black
clothe and wearing silk hats. Kacli
olllcial woi-e hia l.ftib'e of oflice and car
ried a stud. They marched into the
corrior, ti n of them taking their places
at the Leonard street hide and the
others at the Franklin street wall. The
lint jury .f twelve men till newspaper
representative entered the prison
Yard, and two minute later the second
set of jurors tiled in and marched to
their place. The last rites of the church
were iulimuistcrc.l to J acKcnliain una
Nolan, and at 0:411 they emerged
from the jail accompanied by a
pried:. The arms of the condemned
were pinioned, and over the shoulder of
each hnnu' a black cup. l'aekenham's
face was pale, but his manner linn and
l,e looue.i imiiuicniniy lino me iaecs
iironnd him. Nolan hardly appeared to
leali.e his position; tnero was a half
defiant look on his countenance. After
the men had taken their places 011 the
fcalTohl they both grasped the hands of
the priest, wrin'ins them fervently.
Tle-n Han-man Aikiuson tied a white
cord ahont ti.e h-;:sof Nolan, just. above
the ankles. His assistant did a lihc ser
vice for Faekeiiham. Instanlly the
black cap were adjusted, and at a siur-
nal from ticinson, inu ii"-"',
were jerked into the air. At 7:10 Nolan
and l'acki-nhani were pronounced dead,
but their bodies were permitted to hiuiu'
for ten minutes longer. While this
gcene was litmu enaei.-o, .u-.i....m.....-
were beinu' made for what proved to be
the most ahnckinz spectacle that had
ever taken place within the walls of the
Tombs prison. Two minutes after tar
olin and Lewis had received their last
,. ;tnl consolation they entered thn
iail vard, a.-compiinied by priests.

Snyder's restaurant at an hour when all
tlie iieople ln the house wer sleeping
soundly. Just the hour the tire bterted
is a uivsttry, but as the restaurant cook
is missing it is fair to oresume that the
accident occurred while makin" the lire
in the bij range. Theawful speed witli
which tlieHames swept up through the
iiuuiiinsusetit the use of keroseue by
a cureless cook.
1 wo isilice officers were a block away
when the fire sturted.- T hey hurried to
the scene nnd broke in the front door of
the building. There was no si;n of life
in the buildiuj, and the officers hurried
from one door to auotlier to arouse the
inmates. Murmuring were lirst heard,
then the buzz of many voices, which
finally changed into a wail of terror and
n'ony fnnn men, women and children
strii-pliu-.' for their lives. The fire es
capes leiulinu from the burning building
to the tenement house next door were
soon filled witli half-naked people, fran

In tin' meantime the fire department
had arrived and had begun work on the
flames and were assisting 111 rescuing
the frightened inmates. The flames
were extinguished easily and the peo

safely. Not one person escaped down

anon as jmssible. The remains of old
William (bunion were discovered by
the side of the bed in his room on tbe
second floor. In the rooms of the Wells
family in the middle of the floor knelt
the mother, Mary Wells, and m her
dead embrace were her children, June
and Thomas. They had been smoth
ered, ami not a burn or blister defaced
their countenances. The nine dead
bodies were taken to the Thirtieth
street station and later friends claimed
Snyder, keeper of the restaurant in
which the lire broke out, has been ar
rested 011 suspicion of being responsible
for its crigin. An insurance policy for
1,000 on his stock was found 111 las
possession, and one of his employes
states that he, found fat scattered over
the floor of the restaurant.
Snyder ami William Brooks, his col
ovei I-cook, were, arraigned -before the
coroner this evening. Snyder was com
mitted to the tombs without bail and
brooks was sent to tho house of deten
tion as a witness. The police say they
have a good case. ... ,
One of the most notable incidents ol
the fire was the gallant efforts of Ambu
lance Surgeon Schnefer, of the New
York hospital. When he arrived on
11, 11 ehnncn of nnv escaping
by tho stairway was cut off,
as it was burning fiercely and
tho halls were, filled with smoke. On

Bimnlns Wild In Ilia Wood.
Toledo, O., August 22. Three weeks
ago Adam Bemmert, a well known
building contractor, disappeared in a
mysterious manner. Some months since,
Bemmert was awarded the contract for
building two new school buildings in
this city, but ho took the job cheaply,
and finding that he would lose money,
he left the city. Diligent search was
made for him, but without avail, xes
terday as a hunter was passing through
the woods near Grassy Point, three
miles below this city, he discovered a
man half nude. To his great surprise
he found it was Kemmert, whom be
knew well. The unfortunate man, hear
ing his name called, turned and ran
through the woods, uttering insane im
prccautions as he ran. The matter was
reported to tho police, who are now
searching for him.
