DISIOVKIIED HY A SMALL BOY.
Tr.- fire was discovered shortly after
12 o'clock, just after the congregation
bad been disrniseeil from tbe morning
service. Dr. Taltnajfe was in the church
shaking hands witb Borne of tbe c u
gTegatiot when a small bo rushed in

without speaking to Dr Talmage,
rnshid down stairs to the motor room
and U'gan making a thorough examin
ation Altai searching around all the
corners of tne room and not being able
to bml nny indications of fire, he ran
uu .'tnir. As ha entered the church
he taet Dr. Talmage with Dr. Moody.
They I. ad also smell-d smoke.
The boy who first entered the church
and informed Mr. Day of tbe fire, then
Tolniiteered to go op in tha bad: of the
organ to see if it was vhere. lie did

fore the geOtlfBeO who were wailing
for him. with his face blacken! and
nlinost snffooated from smoke. All lie
conld say was that be discovered tbe
tire in the lark of the organ. Dr. Tal
lage, Mr Day and Mr. Mooly then
started lor tbe organ, but before they
could get near it, a gust of 11 .me broke
frcm the top The gentlemen then
niade a hurried exit.
In the meaiiliine.ex-Supervisor Bawd,
who was in the Snminertiild Methodist
Episcopal church, directly opposite
from tne tabernacle, had also seen the
smoke coming from the tabernacle win

church Windows. Two extra alarms,
and finally a sii'( ial call were sent in,
bringing all of the engines In Brooklyn

flames spread with lightning rapidity
and the sparks flew iu all directions.
The Interior of the chnrch was it
seething, muring mass of 11 iiiws inside
of thirty minutes after the fire was dis
covered, and by 1 o'clock tbe roof and
the handsome stoeple had fallen in.

Great jots of tlania shot nerns-i the
open space, between the tabernacle and
the Hotel Regent, which is next to the

stopped to throw their valuables and
clothing from the windows, while
others hurried to places of safety just
as they hsppsued to be apparelled
when the panic struck them, At the
time of the fire there wero eighty-five
guests and ninety servants In the hotel,
and many of these bad narrow escapee.
The fire extended to the hotel between
the first and second floors. Before the

The flames spread rapidly through
