and at lua-t I'sio lives wre Imperilled
by a firji that started ainong the cot

North German Lloyd StehnisWp Com
pany, Holioken, X. J.,' at 4 o'clock
this afternoon. In lts than 15 mln -;
utes the flames covered a line of piers
a quarter-of a riile Jong, extending
outward from the actual shore Hue to
the bulkheads, from OOO to W) feet
away, and had caught four great ocean
liners no 1 a dozen or more smaller

' The stories In regard to the loss of
life are conflicting, the number 1 icing
varioasly estimated at from fifty to
a). Up to 2 o'clock this morning
tWenty-flve"bodles have leen recover
ed, but theywere all so badly burned
and blackened that Identification was
Impossible. " v ;
The .crowd upon the lank of tlie
river waa almost as great as that
which formed t witness the triiimp
aut return of Admiral Dewey. Look
ing up the river towards the - hurniug
ships and piers," the. scene was won
derful and tragle.and one of grandeur.
Along the Jersey shore small fires were
blazing, started by wreckage from the
great steamships. ..On'njus side, of tjie
river the tire caused the greatest ex
citement, a the drifting steamships
and lmrges , floated, all aflame, to -tie
New York shore and crashed against
tlie piers from Canal to Murray streets.
From what can -be learned tonight,
the .flames started among tlie la rge
pile of cotton bales on pier No. - of the
North German Lloyd Steamship Com
pany, and spread with such remark
able rapidity that in 13 minutes, the en
t j re property of. tin?, company,' taking
lu over a third of a mile of water front
and consisting, of three great piers,
was completely enveloped in the lire,
The flames started ho suddenly and
gaineji such nenuway tnat tlie people
on the piers and ou the numerous ves
sels doeked. were unable, to reach tiie
street. There were great gangs of
workmen on the piers, ami tbeye, to
gether with a numlter of people who
were at tlie docks ou business and vis
Itiug the ships, scattered in all dire
nous, 'am an means ox exit wer' cut
off by the flames, tbjr were foreinl t
jump overboard, and It is Itelieved
great uuhiImts of people were thtw
At the docks of the North German
IJoyd was the Saale, a single-screw
passnger steamship of 4iH& tons
gross; the Bremen, a twin-screw pass
euger and freight steamer of loi(J
tons, and the Maine, a twin-screw
freight and iassenger steamship 'of
K.rsM) gross tons They all caught fire
and were burned to the water's. eIge.
1 be Kaiser ilhelm Ur Grosse, which
had Just come In. wast the only one of
the four bla vessels at the docks that
" The fire was first discoverel! by a
watchman on the pier at 4 o'clock.
He saw a small stveaic of flame shoot
f roni a lale of cotton on pier No. 21: at
which was tlocked the steamer Saale.
He immediately sent in an alarm, i la
a few minutes the flames had extend
ed to the shim and were communicated
to the adjoltniug pier ou the north.
Here were docked the Kaiser Wllhelm
der Grosse and the Maine. Tups were
Immediately made fast to the big
Kaiser Wilheltn der Grosse, and sue
was gotten out to midstream in safety,
though Iwdly scorched: at the bows.
Th ship Maine, however, was doomed,
as tjie flames had already become; so
fierce on the north side of the pier tliat
no tug could approach the vessel. t
Then, by a shift in the wind, the
flames were sent In the direction of
pier No. 1. To the north of nier No. 1
was the dock of the Hamburg-American
line, at which the steamship Phoe
nicia, a twln-serew passenger nfratner
of ts71 gross tons, was docked. Tlie
flames got a good bold on the Phoeni
cia, and she wns towed out Into mid
stream ablaze. j i
The fire had by this time become so
fierce that the officials of the Hamburg-American
line decided that the
only way to prevent a total destruction
of their great pier was to "blow-tip the
side of the dock at which the Phoeni
cia lay. and this was done, A nnmlier
of barges docked at the pier also took
fire, but In the effort to save, other
property, no attention waa paid to
It Is feared that the loss of life in
the holds of the vessels was frightful,
as It Is said that many of tlie crews,
who were asleep at the time, were jm
prisoned there. The worst tale will
come from the Maine, which was en
able to lie towed from the plef. f. k
The vessel had only 'arrived tlds
morning, and some of the imssengers
were still on board, and when the cry
of tire waa raised, most of them Juini
edoverlioard, and. save for a few,wbo
were picked up by tugs, not 02 has
letn Leant from. Although every ' hos
pital and hotel In the city of Hoboken
is crowded with the injured. Some
passengers of the Maine tiled iol es
cajK to the pierVand It was almost cer
ta.!i tlat they lcrished la the flames.1
rhore was a panic on each of the
Pipits. Many persons jumped over
lord, and tlie water, for some dis
tance along the docks, was lined with
leople. They were ellDging to the
piers and even to the rudders of the
liurning vessels. Some were picked
up. , others were drowned. Peter
Quinn. Justice of the peace In Ilobo
ken, tells the story of having seen at
least thirty ieople perish. i -.
i When the Are broke out Mich head
way was gained, by the. time the
Iloboken fire department arrived, that
they were lielpless to cope with the
flames. Calls were made to the New
York fire department for, assistance,
and fire ttijts were sent over. They,
however, had little effect on the great
- mountain of flame and smoke, By 7
o'clock the three piers of . the German
IJoyd' Steamship Corajiany had been
turned to the ground. '
The south end of .the: Campliell
Storage Co's. plant, consisting of live,
live-story structures,- caught fire; the
building, being filled mainly with
Jnte and whiskey, burned rapidly. In
the buildings a large loss will be sus
talncd. : . - ;' .'. '
1 The Snale &. Brenian, after being
pulled from the docks. " were towed
ablaze down the bay and benched oft
Liberty Island. On the Bremen, as
she , blamed out in mid-stream. sisJ
men eonki be seen with their heads
ont of the portholes waving handker
chiefs for assistance. Tug boats and
sail boat darted a ronud the big
Kteanishliia, making" every effort to
save the men. but, the terrible heat
and ; flames kept them away,
! Five minutes after the lire broke out
a woman jumped from one of the
ships In a vain effort to reach the
water. The flames drove her from
the ship, and she leaped Info aburn
liig lighter alongside the ship. and
when an officer on lioard the ship
fcopIinr to drff ber out of the burning
lighter Into the water.- i tot h .went
down Into the flames in the lighter,
and perished. . . -

I WASHINGTON, June 30. Altliough
no less than four accounts have come
to ' the State; and Navy Departments
resicctlngi the condition of the Min
isters at Pekln, no one of the messages
gives the slightest intimation of why
the Ministers failed to leave the Chin
ese capitol when given a. day's time
to do so. One assumption is that the
Ministers declined lieeause they would
have gone out of Pekln to certain
massacre by the hordes of ( Boxers
outside. Another is that they declin
ed to loavt until other the foreigners
were safely; removed, something be
yond the capacity or inclination of the
Tsung LA Yarnen to accomplish. But

A DISTINGUSWD VISITOR.
Uoa. A. M. Dewey, a Federal Labor Com
missioner, la Salem Consla (
: the Famous AdmiraL
(From Dally Statesman, July 1.)
Hon. Altiert M. Dewey, expert of the
tultel States Deimrtment of Labor, of
Washington, I. C is visiting Salem,
lielng on a tour of inquiry and Inspec
tion of this coast, , ;
Mr. Dewey Is a .distant relative of
Admiral Dewey, He is the author of
the recent published book, "Life and
Letters 5 of " Admiral Oeoree Dewer"
and also the large volume "History of
the Dewey Family for 300 ears In
America." This latter loolc contains
12Tt2 iuiges, and 22.i00 names of ier
sons in Ameri-a. lielonzinz to the four
branches of this famous fa-mily. There
Is scarci'ly a family of prominence In
America that Is not related by marri
age or consanguinity to the family to
which tlie Admiral belong.
.The Salem . visitor made himself
somewhat famous In the Pacific North
west, some months ago. by an address
delivered at Spokane, in which he de
clared himself a Socialist. He donned.
however, tlie kind of a Socialist he is.
which was not explained in the news
paper reorts that were sent out.
It Is one of Mr. Dewey's duties to in
quire concerning the causes ami re
sults of bibor strikes. Throuch bis
Investigations In the service of the
Government, and on account of studies
made before he became a servant of
he Department of Labor, he has con
lu.led that the strikes of labor organ
izations and. in fact, these associations
as at present constituted, are not dea-!
tlned to work put tire solution of the
labor problem. For Instance, lie does
not think one-fourth of the members
of a ersrt have the right to assume to
tlwrnsilves the authority to regulate
all the matters pertaining to their par- i
tienlar Hue of work, its- Is done, in
some: cases. The other- 75 ler cent of
the JalKjrers in that iiarjicular culling,
should, he thinks, have some rights In
this -respect, and 'they aro Itound to
have them in the end. Mr. Dewey will
remain jover In Salem tolay, going ou
to Portland tomorrow. - , ,
