The steamer after leaving Its dock this

northwest point of North Brother Island

It waa Just before the vessel, beached
that the hurricane deck, the supports of

of women and children, adding to the panic
and horror of those on the deck below.

were taken to the hospital drt the Island
or sent across the river to hospitals In

all the hospitals in Greater New York and
every other sort of conveyance which could

For hours the bodies of the burned" and
the drowned drifted ashore 'on the island

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

made to noise the hatchway with the bodies

New Are hydrants contiifue to be ordered
by the city council, and Tuesday night
an ordlnsnce was introduced providing for
nineteen more. At the same meeting ordinances were given Anal passage that
direct the water company to Install eleven
new hydrants. Fully a dozen have been
ordered previous to this and one or two
have been placed in pesitlon. ;
For several years no additional hydrants
could be secured because of the arbitrary
limitation of the water fund, although
there have been many requests from
various parts of the city here residents
believed they had 'Inadequate Are . protection. Recently City Attorney Wright gave
an opinion that with the abolition of the
water fund by the enactment of the bill
to acquire the water plant obstacles to,
these hydrants were removed and that
pending the municipalization, of the plant
as many hydrants could be ordered aa desired. The water company entered a feeble
demurrer, but consented tu a friendly suit
