Eleven persons killed, more than a

caped death by tho narrowest margin.
In an IncldlHry lire which wrecked tho
tenement house at 71 Vi Mulborry
street, New York, early Monday.
That a deliberate attempt was made
to destroy the house and Its contents
as well, the police and firemen do
not doubt. Three barrells stuffed with
rubbish soaked with oil were blazing
fircely In the lower hall, cutting off
escape of the fifty or moro persons
who were sleeping on the upper floors.
Some of these died In their beds, over
come by smoke and then caught by tho
flames. Others who had been aroused
too late, fell unconscious before they
could reach a window and were burned
to death scarcely an arm's length from
safety. Many were Injured by jump
ing from upper story windows to tho
street, or by being crushed nB they

Several of the Injured, who wero
taken to hospitals are In a critical con
dition. That so ninny persons were killed
and seriously injured was In part dua
to the carelessness ot the tenants or
the house themselves and their disre
gard for the rule that lire escapes must
be kept clear o obstructions nt""nll
times. When tho frightened men mid
women rushed from their rooms ahead
or the flnmes, they round the wells

with boards which could not quickly
be removed. Excited mothers and

and the smoke pouring out or tho win

the flames In their ears became panic
stricken and tossed their children to
trlends in tho street. Fully a dozen
children wore tossed Trom the second

EFFORT MADE TO SMUGGLE.
Disaster Overtakes a Widespread Con

Now York customs officers bellevo to
be one of the biggest glove smuggling
schemes that ever has been attempted

nbout $5,000 or smuggled goods seized.
The majority or the prisoners aro Ital
ians and in every instance tm port or
departure ror the goods seized has
been on the Meddltteraneau. The selz

found among all these cases, so that
already the evidence points to a wide
