Chicago, Dee. 30 About 550
people were killed in about 10 min
utes in the Iroquois Theatre, the
newest and, a far as human power
could nuke it, the safist theatre in
t'hicaga Fjtimslrt of the dead and
injured vary. The police account
of the dead is MB. The estimate of
the newspapers is 502. Besides this
there are 55 paple missing at mid
night, the majoriiy of whom are very
probably among the dead in the
jnitrpue and the various undertaking
establishments. Ktghty-aix of the
dead have been positively identified
ami 92 others are known to be in
jured. A few of the unfortunates were
. burned to death by fire, many were
mifhrated by gas, and scores were
trampled to death in the panic that
followed the mad plunge of the
frightened audience for the exits.
It will be tawy hours before the
number of dead is accurately known
and many days before all of them
will be ideuliiied. There are bodies
lying by the doens tonight in the
undertaking rooms, in the police
stations, and in the hospitals from
which nearly everything that could
reveal their identity to those who
knew them best is gone. Their
clothing is torn to rags or burned to
finders and their aces have been
.crushed into an unrecognizable pulp

which was the first dramatic produc
tion presented in the theater since
iU erection. The company, which
was very large, escaped to the streets

the snowy streets with no clothing

members of the company sustained

The accounts of the origin of the
fire are conllicting, and Hone of them
are certain, but the best reason given
is that an electric wire near the low
er parr of a piece of drop-scenery
suddenly broke and was grounded.
The fire spread rapidly toward the
front of the stage, causing the mem
ber of the chorus, who wcra then en
gsged in the performance to flee o
the wings with screams of terror.
The fire in itself up to this time was
not serious, and possibly could have
been checked, had not the asbestos
curtain failed to work. As soon as
the fire was discovered, Eddie Foy,
the chief comedian of the company,
shouted to lower the curtain, and
this was immediately done. It des

stuck. The fire thus as given

death where they sat. Immediately
following this rush of flames, there
came an explosion, which lifted the
entire roof of the theatre from its
walls, shattering the great skylight
As soon as the flames fust appear

flames coming in contact with the

them to burst. Will J. Davis, man

This is howevpr, contradicted by tl a
statements of the firemen, who found
numbers of people sitting in their
seats, their faces directed toward the
stage as if the performance were still
goiug on. It was the opinion of the
firemen that these people had been
suffocated at once by the flow of gas
which came from behind the asbestos

of these were on the first floor, the
balance being in the two upper bal
conies and in the hallways back of
them. The theatre is modeled after
the Opera Comique, in Paris, and
from the rear of each balcony there
are three doors leading out to passage
wavs toward the front of the theatre.
Two of those doors are at the end of
the balcony and one in the centre.
The audience in its rush for the
greater part, chose to flee to the left
entrance, and to attempt to mako its
way down the eastern stairway lead
ing into the lobby of tne ineaire.
Outside of the people burned ana
sufTock!d by gas, it was in these
two doorways on the first and second
balconies that the greatest loss of
life occurred. When the firemen
entered, the dead were found stretch
ed in a pile reaching from the neau
of the stairway at least eigni leci
from the door back to a point about
five feet in the rear of the door.
This mass of dead bodies in the cen
tre of the doorway reached to within
too feet af the lop passago wpy. All
of the corpses at this point were wo
men and children.
The fight for life which must have
taken place at these two points is
something that is simply beyond
human power adequately to describe
Only a faint idea of its horror could
bo derived from the bodies as they
lav. Women on ton of those masses
of dead had been overtaken by ueam

knees over the bodies of those wno

arms outstretched in the direction
toward which lay life and safety.
holding in their hands the fragment
of carmen ta. not their own. iney
were evidently torn lrom otners
whom they had endeavored to pull
down and trample under foot as they
madlv fought for their own lives.
As the police and firemen removed
layer after layer of dead in these
doorways, the sight became too much
even for them, hardened as they are
to such harrowing scenes, to endure.
The bodies were in such an inextri
cable mass and so tichtly were they
jammed between the sides of the
door and the wans tnai n was im
possible to lift them, one by one, and
carry them out Tho only possible
thins to do was to seize t lima or
some others portion of the body and
pull with mam strength. Men wort
ed at the task with tears running
down their cheeks, and the sobs of
the rescuers could be heard even in
the hall below where this awful
scene was being enacted. A number
of the men were compelled to aban-
don their task and give it over to
others whose nerves had not, as yet
been shaken by the awful experience.
As one bv one the bodies were drag
end out of that water-soaked black
ened mass of corpses, the spectacle
became more and more hesrtrenaing.
. There were women w hose clothing
was torn completely from their bod
ios above the waist, whose bosoms
had been trampled into a pulp and
whose faces were marred beyond all
power of identification. Bodies lay
in the first and second balconies in
great numbers.' In some places they
were piled up in the aisles three and
four deep, where one had fallen and
others tripped over the prostrate
forms, and all had died where they
lav evidently suffocated by the gas.
Others were bent over backs of seats,
where they had been thrown by the
rush of people for the doors and
killed with hardly a chance to rise
from their seats. One man was
found with his back bent nearly
double, hit apinsl column having
been fractured as he was thrown

morgues the dead now lie in thick
lines, so close to one another that
they touch. On the sidewalk sur
rounding the doors the frenzied
crowds clamored from early morn
until midnight for admittance. The
streets everywhere were full of peo
ple sorrowiug, silent and appalled.
Scenes indescribable wer otw'Uid
within the morgues and other cen
ters of the carnival of death. Iden
tifications are progressing with cruel
slowness, and of the 55fi bodies only
200 liave been recognized. With
the machinnfy pf the coroner's office
clogging the work, pitiable delays
have resulted, which adds Inesti
mable weight to the misery of uncer
tainty that is driving sufferers fran
tic. Suggestions were made by the
chief of police that the unknown
dead be taken to the Coliseum and
there arranged so fif.it there would
be more facility for the work of in
formation. The coroner lef used. All
the time the few who could gain en
trance to the morgues were tramp
ling over bodies, creeping through
the rows of the dead in the search
for their friends.
In the office of the chief of police
and the city hall corridors adjoining
there were packed a halt craze 1
throng waiting the news from the
palaces of death. On a chair in the
middle of the room the chief secre
tary read from the police report the
descriptions of the dead ae they were
formulated at the morgue, aowanu
then there was a shriek or a moan or
woman pushed out with the knowl
edge that in one of the black rows of
the dead was the body of a loved one.
To each of these was given a permit
ir the inspection of the bodies, but
the morgues were too small to admit
a tenth of these who had orders from
the chief. At one of the down town
places a man on his hands and knees
peered down into the features of the
dead before him. When he came to
the parched face of a six-year-old boy
he fainted and fell across the bony

they might find those for whose re
turn others knew there was no hope.
At Ralslon's morgue in Adams street
the seenea of anguish were indescri
bable. Weakened by their ghastly
all-night vigil, SHI wet-ping pe'H'k
stood wearily in front of the dr,
too tired to continue their clamor for
entrant. As the morning wore on
the crowd became greater and plead
ed more insUtantlv for admittance
Men clutched at the sleeves of
stolid policemen and begged that
they might be allowed to go in. One
woman dropped to her knees and
craw led after the sergeant w ho had
turned away to avoid her entreaties.
Others walked up and down in the
street, wailing and moaning in their
agony. The strain on the nerve of
the police became unbearable, and at
7:30 o'clock the officer in charge i'f
the detail of twenty demanded addi
tional men. fifteen patrolmen were
sent to him, and with their arrival
the others dropped baet to rest. In
side the moigim silent men wern
passing among the thkk nw of
dead, seeking to identify them and
to tabulate description of those iixm
whose belies no identifying mark
could be found.
At the other morgues conditions
were equally cruel. The crowds beat
against the police guards, muttering
futle excuses to be allowed to enter.
They were pushed back again, dazed
ann dperate. Many of those who
watclied Ihe sufferers d'tdared that
often the police wero unnecessarily
harsh and unfeeling in their treat
ment of the people.
In the second gallery, seen by the
light of a fireman's lantern, two rigid
figures sat erect in the east side of
the front row. The horror ltxk was
