Tho members or tho orchestra wore tho first jtims. The audience, numberingHOO poruona, rushed to tho front door, but it opened in- wards, and as tho crowd pressed forward it could not be opened, A rush was then made to he two side doors, both of which were nailed up, thus compelling the people to take to the windows, from which many sprang into thu Htreota their dotlion a shoot of flume, rhe fire brigade arrived within half an hour, but it was impossible to extinguish tho flames, as the water in the tonka was frozen. Tlio flre limted two hours. Eye-witunMHes uUW that when the doors wiira finally opened a mass of burning persons was visible -within. The horses and properties of tho circus were all destroyed. The ice broke whilo tho flro brigade was crossing tho river, thus preventing them reaching the flre more promptly. The victims include a colonel of pohco and the vice president of the Bonlictachoff Bourse. Tho audiouce consisted mostly of .Tows. Another account says the ftra was caufed' by a groom having thrown a lighted cigarette on the straw in the sUbles setting it on tiro. Another groom tried to stamp out the fire, but a strong draught fanned the flames and caused them to spread. The author of tho fire perished, also two clowns, believed to bo Englishmen.

There is much to sustain this view. The guouts of tho hotel, in rushing out for shelter after the first alarm had been given, left their valuables in the rooms. Some were cautious enough to lock their doors, but otbore, in their fright, left them open, and the property became an easy prey to the tliicves, who were then al ready probably prowling about the promises Evidence that thin-fin weru at work actively is abundant the IOKOIM was R H.
