Among the inmates are four who are entirely blind, while five others are nl most blind. Twelve are epileptic. Of these six suffer such severe attacks and of such frequency that it is necessary to give them constant treatment. One inmate is entirely helpless from pa ralysis, while tflre<> others are practical Jv unable to aid themselves. Owing to the diptheria quarantine there has been a cessation of syphiletics that usually are sent into the hospital department for treatment, but there are still twelve who are now receiving treatment for syphiletic conditions, -which cases are not now a menace to public.

Washington, Feh. 4.—Vict' President Marshall probably will east the vote j which derides whether the administra tion ship bill lives or dies at this ses sion of Congress. It the expCt'tations j of the leaders are fulfilled, it will be niie of the few instances in which the i Vice President of the United States j has swung tin" balance. Tin' last was when the late Vice President Sherman I cast the deciding vote for the Bristow resolution, which put a constituii ■ 11:11 amendment for direct election of Sen ators before the people. Administration i Democrats reformed their line.- to-day and found they ha I only 4tl votes against the 4S waiting to send the bill ba.-k to the l'ommcr' ( e Committee without instructions. Their only course was to stave oil' a vote while Senatoi IS'ewlaiiMS hurries back from California and Senator Smith, of South Carolina, can come from the bed side of his wife. With their votes, the Democrats figure that, barring surprises, the eonte will be even on the iloor mid the \ ice President will be calle I ion for the deciding vote. The a Iminis ! tration leaders count him with them. With thi< program before them, to da\'s proceedings were carried on as part of tin plan to hold oft a vote until the arrival of the two absent Senators. In the course of the debate Senator lloko Smith saiil: "It is understood that if the bill now before the Senate "oes to a vote it will be beaten, ft j* understood that if amended a major ity of the Senate will vote fo"l* il."

Those are sup posed to have been due to gasoline. A water tower was improvised or the Mount Vernon truck and this was brought into plav promptly by the Fire Chief. It threw streams of watei into the third story. At ten minutes of 011 c o'clock tlu building collapsed, and nothing re mained but the walls of the first floor The falling walls crushed in a sm:*ll Mie slory frame blacksmith shop beside the Ford building, run by L'rick Fred crickson. This building;, together with the New York Oyster llouse and a sta ble that were in danger nearby, are owned by Frauk K. Taylor. After the collapse of the ford building the (iremen directed theii streams on the building of the Nuss Manufacturing Company, inanufactur 1 ers of electroplates and bttnij instru j ments. O. \V. 'N USS is maaager. The build ing ia 10-ated at Cameron and Mul | berry stieets and was separated from | the For I structure liv n small uuoccu | pied space. The burning Ford building, so close to the Mulberry street bridge, afforded a spectacle for thousands of persons lined along the railings on the north side of the viaduct, as the fire starteii durinu the dinner hour, large numbers of men and women were making theii way across the bridge. They stopped ti witch the flames while other crowds came from all directions. Before the collapse of the walls ol the big building, the heat of the fire be anie so intense that the crowds were forced to shift their positions -an the bridge. The explosions frightened quite i many, too, and the dread of some sud | den outbreak in the burning structure kept women spectators, especially, from remaining too near. When the flames had subsided to j sjme extent the crowds on the bridge i pre--:*. I back against the railing on the m,.: '.i side of the structure so eagerly ' :' ;ii the police reserves and nil the ' ava'la .le members of the day force \. iio could be sin„ t'j the fire were di | reeled to keep them back for fear the ! railing would give way. It was recalled in this connection | that many of the concrete posts holding ■ the railing have crai'ied at different ! times and given other signs of weak ness. During the height of the blaze the flames were so hot that there was some alarm lest they would do injury to the j bridge. Firemen took advantage of the proximity of the bridge to the burning building and several streams of water i were directed from the structure. Save Cars From First Floor The blaze started during the noon hour, when but few persons were in the garage, but those who were on the first floor were attracted by the smell of smoke. By that time the two upper floors of the building were so filled with smoke that it was impossible to enter without a mask. Jacob Aurabaugh, shop foreman of the parage, was among those in the building and he directed the efforts of two chauffeurs in saving a few cars on the first floor. Six were rolled to safety, together with some cases con taining automobile accessories. The building was soon surrounded on all sides by firemen. The aerial ladder on the All. Vernon truck, which is equipped with a hose line and a nozzle wfiich can be operated from the ground, was run up to the front of the building, a trolley support wire being cut for this purpose. The ladder was placed front window and just as the stream was turned on flames burst from the window and the top of the ladder started to burn. Other streams were sent intft the window from all sides—froni the roof 10c White Dress Goods In the Mill and Cp.

I (if the Nuss Manufacturing Company's | ; plant, from the Mulberry street bridge, j from the roof of the blacksmith shop, i where five Shamrock firemen barely es caped with their lives, and from the hill immediately behind the garage at the rear of Sylvan Terrace. Many Small Explosions By the time the firefighters were ; placed and streams >ll, small explosions were occurring on the second floor, which was used for cleaning and re pairing cars most of the cars having : some gasoline in the tanks. One after another small explosions occurred, I sending the burning liquid into the air jon all sides There seemed to be about, ten small explosions, each one inereas- | in;; the volume of the tire, which was sending toujjups oJ flame from every window ou the second and third tloors of the building. The roof seemed to weaken and the 1 upper floors to wobble and with scarce-i Iv a warning crack crumble and sank ( into the first Moot of the building. Bricks were hurled in every direction and a number of firemen had narrow I escapes from these missiles. Fire Chief Kindler was standing at a corner of l i tho building when the walls started to i tumble and he had to flee tor safety. ! Flames shot fully 400 I'.vr in the air and thousands who had crowded the Mulberry street bridge and the yards .it the rear of Sylvan Terra.-e homes 'had to get back to keep from being i scoTehed. The wall to the south crumb led into a heap and did 110 damage ! the Nuss plant, but the north wall fell outward a trifle and crushed the root of the blacksmith shop like an egg shell. Several wagons were crushed un : der the roof of the shop. At the rear of this building was a ! sprinkler w:igon belonging to the City i Highway Department. The roof imme- I diately over the sprinkler did not go down and it is believed that this vehicle was saved. Under oont,rol at '1 O'clock The falling of the building made the work of the firemen 'comparatively easy thereafter and from the surround ing roofs and the bridge they could (day streams into the ruins, although danger of explosions remained. At 2 o'clock the flames were under control of the district apparatus and one com pany after another, which had been called by telephone or the general alarm, were sent home. Firemen then dragged away enough wreckage from the southwest corner of the building to permit the entrance of streams into the first floor in an effort to stop any flames that might reach a big gasoline tank buried under the debris.
