lives were imperilled by a fire that

boken, N. J., at 4 o'clock this after
noon. In less than fifteen minutes the
flames covered an area a quarter of a
mile long, extending outward from
the actual shore line to the bulkheads
from six hundred to one thousand
feet away and had caught four great
ocean liners and a dozen or more
small harbor craft in its grasp,
Stories in regard to the loss of life
are - conflicting, the number being"

Those who gathered along the shores
of the Hudson, river to witness the
great conflagration saw a spectacle
they can never forget and one that
will always have a conspicuous place
in the history of New York city.
A Fearful Spectacle.
The river and bay were enveloped
in a pall of black smoke, through
which angry flames, bursting as from
volcanoes, on the Jersey shore and in
the water itself, leaped like red
spears into the sky. The surface of
the water was covered with floating
and blazing masses of freight, thrown
in haste from the doomed vessels
all unnoticed in the mad race to
rescue more precious life, threatened
or being sacrificed in the great slips.
And through the pall of smoke a
great crimson sun, . enlarged to thrice
its size by the haze, glared like an
enormous eye as it slowly sunk in the
Such was the tremendous spectacle
presented on the surface of the Hud
son river, as if it had been some holi day
pageant. It was made tragic by
the realization that somewhere in that
smoke, somewhere beneathjhe turbid
waters, scores of human lives had been
lost or were then in their last desper
ate struggle against death.
This spectacle was witnessed by
thousands and thousands from both
shores, and by other thousands who
crowded on every ferry boat, every va
riety of craft that could be secured for
the purpose. The crowd upon the
banks of the river was almost as great
as that which was formed to witness
the triumphant return of Admiral
Men working in the holds of the
four steamships were shut in by walls
of flames and it was impossible to
reach them. It probably never will be
known, how many, lives perished in
the ships, as the flames would leave
but few if any remnants of the human
body. The greatest loss of life appears
to have been on the Saale. She car
ried 450 people and was to have sailed
for Boston this afternoon. When the
police boat captain went out with his
rescuing party, he saw bodies lying all
around the deck. The steamship Bre
men carried a crew of 300 men, and
the Main 250 and if as many lives were
lost as on the Saale, the number of
dead will be very great.
The flames started so suddenly and
gained such headway that the people
on the piera and on the numerous ves
sels docked were unable to reach the
street.- There were great gangs of
workmen on the piers and these, to
gether with a number of people who
were at the docks on business and visi
ting the ships, scattered in all direc
tions. As all means of exit were cut
off by the flames they were forced to
jump overboard and no doubt a great
number of people were drowned.
At the docks for the North German
Lloyd were the Saale, a single-screw
passenger ship of 4,965 gross tons; the
foremen, a twin screw passenger and
freight steamer of 10,526 tons, and the
Main, a twin-screw freight and passen
ger steamship of 12,200 gross tons.
They all caught fire, and were burned
to the water's edge. The Kaiser Wil
helm der Grosse, which had just come
in, was the only one of the four big
vessels at tne docs that escaped.

the situation, especially the fate of the

Berlin, June 30. A high foreign
official said to-day:
"The theory of 'no war' is still up

of notes is going on at present.
Japan, some time ago, asked the
powers for their programme, which
communication was answered. The
press has been exaggerating the share
which diplomacy has hitherto bad in
the matter. There has not been any
talk of dismissing the Chinese minis
ters in Europe." ,
Lord Gough, the British charge
d'affaires, said he thought the powers
were keeping up the fiction of no war
as long as possible out of fear that
difficulties might arise between them
selves in China if war was once offi

The correspondent of the Associated
Press also interviewed the Chinese
minister, Lui Hai Houan, who said:
i here has been no question hitherto
in Europe of handing the Chinese
ministers their passports. No one
knows where the ministers to China
are. The sending of itroops hence to
China is useless, for everything will
be over before their arrival. It will
require six weeks to get them to Tien
Tsin, and Li Hung Chang will sup

mere is growing dissatisfaction
throughout Germany with the attitude
of the government regarding China,

publishes little official news and even
some of this is erroneous. At the for
