the outbrrst of flames that those sit
ting on the seats had narrow escapes
from burning.
The shouts of fire sent the passengers
in a rush to the open ends of the boat,
men almost pushing one another into
the water. The panic spread to the
women's cabin, which was also crowd
ed, there being 1,000 passengers on the
boat. The Montclair was in midstream.
As quickly as they could make their
way to the fire extinguishers, the deck
hands took them down and played on
the fire, which quickly became only a
smudge of stifling smoke.
The boat was driven full speed, with
whistle shrieking, to the Hoboken

and the fire department put out what
remained of the blaze. It is supposed
that a smouldering cigar stub com
