Y Oct. splen- did Lelsnd Hotel lies in ashes and the prophecy of hundreds, who tha buildin? in the course of construction, that it was a fire trap has been woefully verified. To give an adequate descrip- tion of the horrifying scone of d struc- tion, which began at o'clock Thurs- day morning-, would be impossible. To those first on tbe scone the cries of the poor wretches doomed to death by the slow torture of flre wore blood-curdling. Tho cries of "See hi.-n and one edly from tho throats of tbo spectators, only added to the intenso ajjony of the scone. Th? streets were filled with peo- pie who h.-d escaped barely with their lives, bringing tiles of horror of those left to their fate within the burning building-. It seemed an interminable time be- foro tho firemon could a stream to play upon tbe flames. Tloarsg cries of men and shrieks of women tho air as they would appear for a mom out at the windows of the upper stories and fall back exhausted. The taios of hair- breadth escapos by those who succeeded in getting out would fi'l a volume. The New York Central depot, Concrnss ITa.ll, the Globe Hotel, Vanderbilt Hall, Man- sion House and everv available house was turned into an infirmary for the in- jury and a refuse for those who oame out of tho fire alive. Lewis Lsland was the first to discover the flre, He was gointf from the oiBco whon. he noticed a light through cracks in the door open- ing into tbe stairwav which led to tbo kitchen and store roomabove. Opening the door he saw that the upper'end of tbe stairway was in flames, and he quickly closed tho doors and ran back into the office, calling to nig-ht clerks Jones and to give an alarm. Mr. Bridgerain ran? the electric alarm that rings a bell in every room in tbe house, and Mr. Jones sent an alarm of fire to the telephone office. In the moan- time Lewis Leland elevator boy, Henry Rooschor, had run up stairs and dashed through tbe halls, calling to the guests to gat out of their roooi-3. In less than a mintita the entire northwest cor- ner of the building was afire, and all efforts of th9 hotal employee to chac'< the progress of the flamos worn unavul- ing. Even beforo a majority of the guests were awako tbe light shaft ia the center of the burning. Scores of guests who had boon arousal by the crackling of tho flamos or the ringing of the electric bells rushed out of their into the halls, only to find thorn Cull of smoke. Sooi-3 of those who got out of their rooms just suc- ceeded in escaping by the staircase. The halls wore filled with the cries and shrieks of frightsned men and women. Although the gas was burning in all tho halls, the light could not bo soon more than a few feet off, on account of the dense smoke. Dozens of mon and women who had fallen the floor and stairs wore dragged to exits. In less than ton minutes after the alarm had been given tho rescuers were driven from the insido of tho building and tbe only means of assistance was from the outs id'.1. The Hayes truck was run up to tho bnildin? and an attempt mado to h list tho ladder. There was somo bitch in tho machinery of the hoisting appara- tus which male a delay of several min- utes.

The Hennessy sisters crouched into tbe room and a moment later they were rescued the firemen. At a window on the fifth floor two women screamed for help.
