Thomag Sorenson Believed' to Be a
Victim of a Conflagration That He
snd His Companion Are' Supposed
to Have Caused. ; .
The police believe that a' lira at , the
State Room Inn, 00S Thurman atreet,
early yesterday morning waa caused by
the . twa victims who were cremated.
One of the unfortunates, they think,
blew out the gas; when the .lethal fluid
bad rilled thai room, one or the other
awoke and struck a match, which caused
an -'explosion. . ; :. . : ' ' f ""'
Deputy Coroner Arthur l Flnley'and
Police Sergeant Blover identified one of
the dead men yesterday from letters and
papers-In bis pockets aa Thomaa Soren
son of Notch Hill. British -Columbia.
Tslegrsms to his home town have failed
to reveal the Identity of hla companion.
, A report from the aoapltal late last
Right stated that MIsa Anna Lubet was
able to sit up and talk, but that ah did
not" remember' what happened from the
time aha was awakened by Pollner and
was told' to Jump from 'the window of
tha burning building ' until - yeaterday
noon. Her physicians ssy- that - while
her back was not broken - the aplnal
column waa affected by the fall, and
that there Is a chancw ror her recovery.
The Injury Is dangerous, they say, but
If aba passes the critical stage she may
be able to leave' the hospital In about
two months. : . '"' ',..','. "
The BsJttlnr Flre.Trs,''-
'The loss occasioned by the fire Is said
io have been approximately 11,600,
which waa fully covered by Insurance. -
Incendiary theories war advanced by
certain officers; Investigation haa failed
to ahow that they were well founded; a
can of kerossne found In the ruins, and
to whose presence some Importance waa
attached, was left In the building purely
by accident, they say. !" ' .
Sorenson and' his companion reached
the city Friday morning and went - at
once to the State Room inn. where they
met their death. . They retired at a lata
hour, after having talked with a number
of people. It la known that neither was
accustomed to gas. "
Tha building waa erected In n hap
hazard way, ' Each room had a gas Jet
which was only 11 or 14 inches from the
celling. Over the Jet wss a small piece
of asbestos, about 11 Inchea square,
which waa lntendeL,to keep the celling;

The bodies of tha men ara at Coroner
