A Roy Hero Naves Many Lives—Portugal Will Probably Apologize. London, Jan. 2.—Thousands of persons, impelled by curiosity, have visited tbe scene of the fire in tbe building of the Forest Gate pauper school yestfrday and the police and attendants have been kept busy in their endeavors to retain sufficient clear spat*) wherein necessary work might ta done. The school was filled with boys who had been committed to its care tarsi vie of their incor-rigable habits, and altogether the inmates were of a character from which little discipline or otiedience might be ex|iected in moments when both were imperative. As a rule, however, the boys yielded to the directions of their superior* and to this fact is due the safety of stores who otherwise would have perished. Of the twenty-eix who lost their lives only two were burned to death, the others having been suffocated in their betis. Many of thb latter were aroused with tbe rest, but became btu (letted with the smoke and crawled tack to their cots to die. Tbe hero of Ute occasion wa* a boy who acted in tbe capacity of monitor in tbe fatal ward, himself a boy whose vicious habits had matte him an inmate of the institution. Through hi* efforts many boys were literally driven from the burning building and he ceased his work of rescue only when he himself wa* driven out by the flames. Heveral of his companions he dragged, unconscious, out of tbe windows, while others ta carried unto the air in his arm*.
