was an cnteitainmeiit in Victoiia hall by
a conjuior , attended almost altogether by
ehildien , being in at
tendance. The body of the hall had
been entirely cleaicd of occupants , when
some 1,200 of the little ones came itish-
ing down the stuns fiom the galloiy. At
the top of the fust tlight of stahs was a
door w Inch opened only tw enty inches ,
and thus but ono child was poimitted to
pass tluough at a time. At this point ,
while a mass of childien were pushing
forwaid , one of them fell and was unable
to tiso , owing to the others crowding.
The result was that a gieat number were
pushed dow n , trampled on and suffocat
ed. The scene was tenible. No effort
could stop the mad rush of the amighted
childien. They came on , pell-mell ,
though stiangely without much shouting ,
and soon 178 w ere knocked down and
by othei s trampling upon them. The
greater number of the bodies , which w ere
badly mangled from the trampling , laid
sov en or eight feet deep. Many of the
victims , and others w ho w ore not killed ,
had their clothing torn fiom their bodies ,
and this , together with the bleeding
bodies of the unfoitunates , shows the
tenible natuio of the stiugglo. The ex
citement in tow n w hen the new s of the
disaster spread w as tori ifie , G reat crow ds
uuhcd to the scene , until tw enty thou
sand poisons smiounded the hall. The
feeling was so intense that the authoiitios

piescivo oidei. The vunk of getting out
bodies begin immediatelj. They weio
lai'J out in the hall , and the patents of
the killed w 010 admitted to identify the
bodies of their childien. A most heait-
lendmg scone tianspited while identifica
tion was in piogiess. Motheis of the
dead chilli on constantly utteied piercing
sluieks , and many fainted on discoveiy
of the bodies of their little ones.

of the calamity , was fitted with a bolt
which lodged in a hole in the floor , thus
nan owing the p.issageway for the pur-
poge of facilitating ticket taking when
the audien/e was enteiingtho hall. The
janitor says the scene behind the galloiy
door Mas foaiful. Some childien weio
fixed upiight in the heap and actually
so gieat was the piessmoof the ciovul behind -
hind them. The majoiityof the childien
in the hall were under Kijeais of age.
"When the disaster happened the janitor
and wife , and soveial otheis , hastily
summoned the by-standcis and wont to
woik immediately to give the sullen ers
lolicf. They fust sent out of the build
ing by other exits the little ones still in
the hall , by this way aveiting the feats of
a f uither ciush. Those who went to the
lescuo of the sufleiers found the work of
removing the heap of biuisod , crushed
and suflocated no easy task. Twohun-

others weie found in an unconscious con

there was a scene of gloat confusion.
Ono of the witnesses of the calanutj
stated to-daj-that for the iiist five min
utes there was a great lack of assistance ,
and from this cause alone there were cot-
tainlj' ono hundred lives lost. The
weather was warm and the passageway
v or'close , so that in a shoit time aftei

stench came fiom the main outlet of the

eagerness of the ehildien to dopait fiom
the hall was caused by their desno to 10-

thiows the blame for the calamity upon
the man connected with the entoitam-

it be that the poison assailed is an liisli
man who has taken an active put tun
deep mtoiost ill advancing the wolfaio e
