Miss rate Claxton the actress whose miraculous escapes from the Heaters in Brooklyn and Washington will be remembered gave the following account of her experience in the burning hotel a i left the olympic theater immediately after the performance and returned to the hotel with my brother. We went into the dining room to take a late supper and there we found miss Osborn and miss Mcclellan. Miss Mcclellan was so Bright and cheerful and i was so charmed with her Sweet face and manners Little imagining what was so soon to follow. After bidding them goodnight i went to my room on the same floor. I sat Down and read a Little before going to bed and everything at that time was quiet. The next things remember was a loud knocking at the door. I was undressed and had been sleeping some Little time. In a half stupid condition i turned and listened and the knocking was repeated. With the knocking the sounds of which were far and near came the dreadful shouts of a fire fire a i sprang from the bed and a terrible feeling of oppression came Over me. I cannot describe it. I looked up at the Gas in my room which was burning dimly and there i saw the smoke Curling around the chandelier. Then it appeared All at once to fill the room and dense Clouds came through the aperture of the fire grate. I thought instantly of my brother and rushed out undressed As i was to discover his room. Meanwhile he had been disturbed by the noise and was approaching my room. I said a let us find the stairs or we shall be my brother was half dressed and reached across the bed to pick up something to throw Over me. We could not find the staircase and the confusion and smoke and Roar of the fire were mingled with the most piercing and heartrending screams. I shall never forget it. We were not acquainted with the hotel arrangements for the common practice is to use the elevator in ascent and descent and therefore could not find a staircase or any Means of escape. There were others on the same floor in the same terrible dilemma but could not Sec each other for the smoke. Presently we groped along and found a step downward. We commenced to descend. What happened i cannot say for i do not distinctly remember. I have been in greater danger As you know and always Endeavor to maintain my composure but the smoke stifled the senses. We reached by some Means or other the first Landing of the ladies staircase on the fifth Street Side opposite the olympic theater. There was a great crowd of ladies in their night dresses in the Vestibule and some persons were persuading them to remain assuring them that All would be Safe. We did not heed this advice and passed out on the Street. A Way Vas made through the crowd for us to reach the hotel opposite and i remained there some Little time to recover myself. There i saw poor miss Mcclellan brought in. I can never forget it. My brother procured a Carriage shortly afterwards and we came Down to the Linden. I feel very much worse to Day than i did when i arrived Here after the escape. I have lost everything literally everything for i am under obligations to lady sympathizers and friends for the clothes which you see me wearing now. I have nothing of my own whatever except the night Robe in which i a thrilling scene was witnessed at the East front about 2 30 of clock. A number of people had been taken out of that portion of the building by Means of the Skinner truck which had then been removed it being supposed that that Side had been emptied of its inmates. Suddenly at one of the windows on the fourth floor a Man appeared in a nightdress. Glancing around he seemed to realize his situation perfectly. The ladder had been taken away and below him was a sheer descent of sixty feet. To jump was certain death. A a what shall i do a he asked. A a stay where you Are a answered the crowd aroused to a Clear appreciation of the imminence of the danger and of the possibility of securing help. A a god deliver me a he exclaimed looking up at the lurid sky and Down at the floors below now All ablaze. He looked up at the sky and clasped his hands in prayer a lord for Jesus Sake a could be easily heard by the throng below calmed into perfect silence. It seemed hours before the truck was brought. It must have seemed centuries to the lonely Man standing at the darkened window lighted by an occasional Flash from the flames around him and startled by the crash that came Here and there of falling Walls. A a lord for Jesus Sake a he cried. A stand where you Are a said fifty voices. The truck finally came and was slowly and clumsily raised to the window. Two firemen went up and put the Man on the ladder. He came Dow n slowly his limbs trembling beneath him. At the Bottom he raised himself up to his full height. A a Hurrah for St. Louis a be cried a a new York ainu to dead then raising his hand up to the sky he said in a lower tone a lord forgive me for every sin that i have Ever committed. To think of having your door opened with a cry and find the w Hole building on fire and then to get out lord i thank thee i have been in fires before and in Battles and fights but this beats he was too much excited to give any rational account of himself and was hurried away in an overcoat which had to be forced on his shoulders and held there by the two Strong firemen who escorted him to a place of safety.
