During Its run to North Brother Island the General- Blocum's whistles kept blowing for assistance, but before the whistles began to blow several tugs, the captains of which had seen the outbreak of the fire, started after the vessel, Joined by a yacht, while rowboats put out from the shore. The number of these craft constantly grew and not the least dramatic Incidents of the catastrophe were the efforts of the. people In these boata to rescue those who had Jumped overboard . from the burning vessel. ;',' Men crowded t the rails, of the tugs and caught up the drowning persons aa they were borne by the current. There were many thrilling rescues by this means. North Brother Island, where the vessel waa beached, contains a scarlet fever ward. The patients, who witnessed the disaster, were ordered Indoors and the doctors hastened to the rescue of those who had been washed ashore, but some scores of persons died while they were being attended to.

In the wake of the Slocum, as It'hurrled upstream, was a line of little- blaob, .spots, marking the heads and bodies of those who furnace had sought to ' escape on the. ship by throwing .themselves, overboard. Few of those saved by the small boats had on life preservers. At no time during the progress of the fire waa there any opportunity to either lower the lifeboats or get the life preservers out from underneath the seats. This pehaps gives an Idea of the rapidity with which the flames swept the decks. It was an experience harrowing and and that any escaped alive seems wonderful. Barns to Water's Edge.

The excursion was In charge of Rev. George C. Haas, pastor of the church. The vessel waa commanded by William Van Bchalk, one of the bent known excursion boat captains in New York harbor. He has commanded the General Slocum for almost the entire time alnce It was built. In 1891. The steamer after leaving Its dock this morning proceeded up the East river, all three of ita decks being crowded with merrymakers. Bands played and' the great aide wheeler was decorated with flags from stem.,to stern. The Slocum had reached a point near the Sunken Meadows off One Hundred aqd Thirty-fiftstreet, Manhattan, which-lat the extreme eastern end of Randall's Island, when fire, broke out in a lunchroom on the forward deck. The blase was caused by the overturning of a pot of grease. The headway of the vessel and a high wind almost Instantly fanned the Insignificant flame Into fury.

The Slocum got within fifty feet of the northwest point of North Brother Island and there stopped in the shallow water. It waa Just before the vessel, beached that the hurricane deck, the supports of which had burned away, fell with its load of women and children, adding to the panic and horror of those on the deck below. Very soon after parts of the second and third de"ks also caved In. But before this happened the tug Walter Tracy had come alongside the burning steamer and been lashed to It. Many of .the passengers! were taken oft by the crew of frne Trace y,- - which remained alongside the steamer until the tug's pilot house took Are. The point where the Slocum beached was Just , oft Lhe, scarlet . fever ward on North Brother Island. The patients, who had been outon the porches and lawns watching the approach of the burning steamer, were ordered indoors and the physicians on the inland hastened to the assistance of those who were being brought ashore through the shallow water.. Many of those who leaped from the Slocum were carried away by the current even after she beached and were drowned. ' . ( i Body After Body Washed Ashore, .The scene-- , on - North Brother. IsUuvV as described by was a pitiful one. Body after body waa washed ashore or brought in by boata and added to the long row on the beach. Fifty-thre- e persons died .there while-- : the- doctors were attending them. As the bodies of the living and the dead were taken from the water, those alive were taken to the hospital drt the Island or sent across the river to hospitals In Manhattan: Here ambulances from almost all the hospitals in Greater New York and every other sort of conveyance which could be found were put Into service. ; For hours the bodies of the burned" and the drowned drifted ashore 'on the island and between 131st and S8th streets, In Manhattan. Some came ashore still alive. Many of these died, while others will recover. It is doubtful. if some of the bodies can ever be ldenttAd. Heads, legs and arms are burned off' arid not a shred of clothing Is left on them. What looked like a big hntrhway, on which were Ave or six bodies, was found floating in the cove at Hunt's Point and towed carefully alongside the Fidelity. The wood was badly charred snd ' the bodies seemed to stick to It.- Ths ollce-me- n and ths crew of the Fidelity were to release the bodies without further mutilating them, and arrangements were made to noise the hatchway with the bodies on it to the deck of the Fidelity.

At the same meeting ordinances were given Anal passage that direct the water company to Install eleven new hydrants.
