thirty girl on the front fire escape and
down to the lower landing and the street
before the flood of panic-stricken girls
from the top floor began to pour from
the windows. '
At Mcllugh's direction the. girls hung
by their liandu from the platform and
dropped the twenty-five feet to the street.
Nearly all were safely caught by firemen
and other rescuers.

ard across the street, aided in catching
girls who dropped from the lower fire es
cape landing, lie caught one girl in his
amis who had Jumped from the third
floor and bore the shock, so firmly that
nil escaped injury.
Owing to the roar of the sewing ma
clilnes In the Wolf factory on the fourtn
floor, the explosion was not heard. The
first warning the girls at the building
had was furnished by smoke spouting
through the floor and the crackling of
flames In the hallway. The elevator man
ran hia car to the top floor, but appears
to have run It down again without making
any effort at reecua,'"
Kscape Is I'nt Off.
Before tlie Wolf employes knew there
was a fire In the building, the wooden
stairway leading frouv she third to the
fourth floors was aBla't.1- Escape by that
avenue was Impossible. " The stairway fell,
in fact the burning board and balustrades
dropped clear to the ground floor before
a stream of water was put on the building.
The flames literally spouted through the
floor of the Wolf fact ry from the floor
below. The door of the-levator shaft and
the doom leading to the hall were open.
Vhen the panic stricken girls opened the
windows on the three side of the Wolf
wotkronm, they created a draught that
sucked the fire up from below and mush
roomed It against the room.
Tle fire had gathered its direct harvest
of death within ten minutes after the ex
plosion on the third floor. The fatally In-'
Jured wei then on their way- to the hos
pitals, or were in the hands of hospital
Itts. 10 vans and (Jotigb, of the City hos

get to the Injured.
The heavy laden floors of the factory
were the flrkt to fall into the cellar. 'I lien

tlie ruins, leaving only the walls stand

pronounced them safe for thf time being.
A dotrn firemen were Injured In fight

department worked fiautically to rescue
the girls at the windows and crowded on
the fire escapes, but the flames spread
too rapidly. Even after the entire build

spend to the alarm. Men rushed from
neighboring factories and business build
ings, and spread Improvised life nets of
wagon covers nnd coats and several of
the girls who leaped from the upper win
dows were saved by thexe expedients.
Pathetic scenes attended the transporta
tion of dying and injured to the hospi
tals. Crowds of men and women, among
them relatives of workers in the building,
followed the hurrying vehicles, wringing
their hands and wailing with anguish.
The tragedy occurred so swiftly that
every manner of vehicle was used to
carry the Injured to hospitals and to the
homes of nearby physicians. The four am
bulances of the city hospital carried twelve
Injured girls on their first trip and two
of the sufferers died on the way.
Priests Aid In t Rescue
Priests who mingled with the crowds
climbed Into the ambulances to offer the
consolation of their religion to the dying.
Other priests who had hurried to the
scene of the fire assisted the firemen in
carrying the Injured in their arms to bt
Michael's hospitals, several blocks away.
St. Michael s hospital Is a private lnsll
tutlon and has no ambulances. The ten
woman carried there were borne In the
arms of foremen, policemen, priests and
citizen. . The nuns of Ft. Michael's ran
out to meet them and helped them bear
the burdens Into the building. Wards and
private rooms were made ready with,, all
'possible haste and every available phy
slciatt'ln, the neighborhood was summoned
to the aid of the hospital staff. ,
One young woman, who had Jumped from
a fourth story of the factory building,
died while being carried Into Kt. Michael's.
Three others who were terribly Injured In
tlie some manner, were seen to be past aid
and priests were called to their bedsides.
The arrival of thirty-one injured women
at the city hospital in a procession of am
bulances and other vehicles and followed
by a crowd of anguished relatives and
friends, caused the greatest excitement
along Fairmont avenue. There were not
nurses and attendants enough In the build
ing to meet the task, and the work of
preparing cots and wards proceeded slowly,
notwithstanding that the entire neighbor
hood turned out to holp.
Many women hurried from their homes
to offer what aid they could to the over
worked hospital staffs.
Ilesd and Injured In Heaps.
Titer were, literally heaps of Injured
mingled with the dead and dying on the
pavement and In the alley when the first
ambulances arrived from the City hos
pital. The fire was still burning fiercely
and tlie air was filled with a confusion
of shrieks and cries that rose above the
clamor of the fir engines and the shouts
of th flrnin.
Th young Internes on the ambulances
worked swiftly and silently.
On the way to tlie hospital the sur
geuns and drivers yeled to every paslng
automobile to hurry to the fire and serve
aa ambulances. At least a doson .touring
cars responded to this call and trans
ported Injured girls and women, many
of whom begged to ttiken home instead
of to the hospitals
Within half un hour after the Injured
and" dying began to arrive at the City
hospital, the crowds of grief stricken re

the City hospital to ciesr the corridors
they met with frenxled opposition. Age 1

to the hospitals prevailed where, the po

The news of a death m the hospital
spread swiftly to the crowd outside, and
when the total of reported deaths had
reached five, the anxious hundreds stoui
peded against the doorways to learn the
names of those added to the death lost.
Lr. J. C. Howard, pastor of the lialsey
Street Methodist LpJscopul church and
city chaplain of Newark, was among the
first group of clergyman to arrive at the
City hospital. He summoned his curates
and all of his pailshoners capable of min
istering to the injured. He also called
to the hospital the Ki-v. Knoch Meacham,
pastor of the Trinity Methodist Episcopal
church and half a dozen priests and clergy
men of other denominations.
There were similar scenes at St. Mich
ael's hospital, and even greater crowds
until a list of the Injured was recovered
by a priest and th,e anxlonus relatives were
told to seeTt Information at the City hospi
tal or at the nearest police precinct.
Two brothers of Alice Melden, theeoond
victim of the fire to die In Hi. Michael s
hospital, arrived a few minutes after their
'. sister had expired. As they passed through
; the doorway they heard one reporter say
I "The Melden girl has Just died."

While he was

if those precious moments, from three
to five, had not been lost." he Faid, not
a single life would have been lost."
Fireman O. U. Urown was wasliing the
front windows of the ground floor of the
building occupied by Engine Company No.
4, which Is located directly opposite the
scene of the fire. He was on the inside or
the building when he saw one of the girls
from the Waif factory rush into the street
screaming. He ran out to Intercept her
and In hysterical tones she told that there
was a fire upstairs. Hastily he turned In
an alarm. Fireman Urown corroborates
Chief Anstley's statement. He says that
five minutes were lost in turning In the
alarm while the employes were trying to
extinguish the blaze.
As soon as Fireman Brown had given the
alarm he rushed across the street closely
followed by Lieutenant Dargen. The two
men clambered upone 'of the fire escapes,
the only ones with which the building Is
equipped. The fire escape the mounted Is
located at the northwest corner of the
building. The other is In the rear.
Drnaaed Thronab Windows.
Forty girls were standing In the windows
on the fourth floor chrleklng for help. A
number of them stoow behind a closed
window, .which In their fright they had
failed to open. Fireman Brown kicked the
window In and held out his hands for the
Boris to take hold. The girls were so
frightened that they stoow as If in a daze.
He caught several and dragged them
through the broken window one by one and
handed them to lieutenant Dargan, who
passed them on to the others. Thus, forty
glrls.i all of them crowded about the wln
dows were led out of the building and down
The flames were pouring out of the
windows by the time tlie laat girl within
reach had been taken out, and Fireman
Brown, waiting for a lull In the billows of
flame, thrust his head Into the window to
see if there were any more in sight.
A huge volume of flame-licked smoke en
veloped him and he dropped back, choking
and blinded. A rush of flames forced him
to beat a retreat to the floor below.
"By that time," said Brown, "the girls
were Jumping from every window. It waa
the most awful sight I have ever seen.
I, never saw a fire spread so fast once It
got started. Before we could reach the
girls in the windows over the fire escapes
the flames were licking the woodwork.
It's a wonder to me none of them lost their
heads and Jumped like those other poor

The Women Were Tempted.
It is understood that the women were
first tempted to enter the ranks of the
'sharks" because there was a growing
demand for small loans among their sis
ters w ho happened to he short. Not only
was there an element of embarrassment
in borrowing from men, but the latter wore
at times unwilling to deal with women
because of the difficulties which have
arisen In the past when attempts were
made to collect.
One spinster, who has worked in an up
town department for many years and has
carefully wived a part of her salary, con
ceived the idea that the women should be

From the State, War and Navy building
to the library of congress there Is borely a
division of any department that cannot
boast of at least one "auntie."
There has been no cut In the rate of in
terest. A loan of $M for thirty days costs
the borrower 12. A larger loan may at
times be had at a slightly redured rate,
while smaller amounts may be had at a
proportionately higher rate.
The greatest borrowers are young women
holding positions which pay from iM to T5
per niqjith, and who live with their parents,
thereby having practically no expenses ex
cept for clothes.
Furs, Jewelry and other accessories of
dress are responsible for a great part of
their Indebtedness. The young women who
work for Uncle Sara are said to b the
best dressed female wage earners In the
country. On this weakness the "aunties"
reap their harvests.

BAI.TIMOTtK, Nov. 18 At a conference
held between Chairman Norman K. Mack,
Congressman Champ Clark and prominent
Maryland democratlo leaders it was de
cided that a meeting in th nature of a
celebration of the recent democratic vic
tory should be called. It probably will be
held here early In January, either just be
fore or just after the usual Jackson day
celebration on January S. It probably will
be continued during the afternoon of one
day, with a banquet In th evening. Under
no circumstances Is It to be continued for
more than two days. This conclusion was
reached after It had been made plain that
no man was to be pushed to the front and
that no outline of a legislative program
was to be attempted.

Congressman Italny closed tho debate by
seconding Congressman Bartholdt's amend

the Oreat Lakes with the Gulf of Mexico
as the main artery of our navigation sys
tem, to provide for an Initial depth of not
less than fourteen feet, with lock sills
adapted to a depth of not less than twenty
four feet. "And we hold," the section read,
"that the advocacy of any less depth by
federal engineers has arisen In a desire to
circumvent our efforts and defeat our main
purpose of Improving transportation by
an adequate system of commercial naviga
tion." The section which caused the debate was
a part of section 8 of the resolutions. As
adopted, section I reads:
"Expressing appreciation of the action of
the Sixty-first congress In making a con

appropriation we declare our need for
