•L / THE iOLA DAILY £EGIS3 !EB^ FRIDAY, JULY 17 1903 WHS TRKIlie DR. ROGERS WAS CARRYING MISS CAMPBELL TO SAFETY WHEN BOTH PERISHED. BE RECOVERED Probable That Remains of Unfortu nate Girl Cannot Be Found—^Two I Bodiea Were Recovered Toda^ Biit They Were Thoie of Cap\alr McClure ^nti Miia Cook, Who Hao JNot Stirrisd From TIjeIr Rooms 4. Several women playod important parts i|n the rcHCMie of the patlpntH nl the Bonner SprioKH Kanitarlnm Are In which Miss Jcnnlo Campbell of thip city lost her life. The: self possession of Miss Annie Folk, .one of the nurses, pcomed to give composure to other attendants and to her credit may- be sa d that she was Instrumental in saving a numbei [Of lives. Her heroic work Is briefly described in the morning Kinsas City Times as follows: "Miss Folk's bedroom was at" the west and on the second floor of the main structure. Flames, which may have smouldered for hours, worked themselves up between the walls from the'>ltchen until they burst forth on the window sill of her room. "Awakened by the smell of smoke, she found the wainscoting, a complete line of smoldering flame. The smoke was then so dense that it concealed thr light of a lamp a foot ^way, but MisF Folk felt her way through the cloud and out Into the hall. After arousing those who slept nearest to her own room, she ran upstairs io the third floor, pounding upon each bedroom door as she passed through the halls Then she descended again to the sec ond floor and awakened all the re mainlng patients." There were nlnoloen p,itients in the hospital at the time of the fl:]c. Three of the patients for whom c.'^capo wa? cut off. Miss Jennie Campbcli, Cap taiii J. A. McClure and Mrs. A. A. Cook, were bedridden. It was for the rescue of one of these that Drl A. E Rogers lost his life. Sevtertll bodies have been found charred beyond recognition. . I^.^l night bones were found, the location of which indicated that they were those of Captain McChire. Temporary homes for the rescued patients %ave been found in privato homes and two large tents have been secured for dining purposes. The sanitarium will }be rebuilt of stonp and steel as sooji as Dr. Sexton recovers from his illness. Word w|isj received at noon today by A. B. Ca,mpbell from his brother- stating that de had reached the scene of the fife and that the body of hii? sister had no^'t been recovered from the ruins. He further said that Jennie had been taken from her room by one of the nurses, and turned over to Dr. Rogers in the hall. It follows that it was Miss Campbell with whom Dr. Rogers lost his life In trj-ing to save her. - They were both possibly overcome by the dense smoke and suffo Gated before the fire reached them. Mr. Campbell also said that the twe bpdles found were surely those of Captain McClure and^ Mrs. Cook. They were not rescued from their rooms and the location in the ruins of the A Trial Will convince you of the super" ior quality of our laundry work. It is always white. It always fits. .

A phone or postal will bring a ' wagon to your door. lola Steam Laondiry, TliMlB. charred retnains leads to that conclusion. The ruins are still too hot to conduct a thorough search for the other two bodies. Mr. Campbell will stay at the ruins until tomorrow be fore giving iip all hope of finding the remains of his sister. The aged mother is bearing up nobly under her burden of griet and patiently awaits with hope that the remains of her daughter may yet be found. A TRANSFER DEAL. • C.

N EXCITEMENT HT TIE CEMENT PUNT Oilers, Grinders and Driers Join the Strikers—Otherwise the Situation is Unchanged. There has been no particular change in the strike situation at the ccnicut •)lant from the conditions that were reported yesterday. The oilers, grirnl ?rs and driers, the Uogistcr is told have been added to the of the strikers, they going out on a synijiathy strike with the machinists as the en pincers, carpenters and electrician? have done, so (hat the total number uf Urikcrs is now reported at 12^. The men arc making no demonstrations uf my kind, except to hold a meet i/:? at (.•."JO each day to agree ni)on the i)ro ijram for the next iwcnty-four hours They say they have no grievance what over against tho vompany except the aniploymcnt of Mr. Bcvier. as foreman. When asked by a Register reporter for tho company's side of the story one of the officials replied tliat lie did not know thai he had anything spec lal to say. So far as he know, ho said no demand had ever been made upon any of tho officials of the company for the discliarge of Mr. ^evicr, nor had the mon presented any olhor griev %nce. The conijiany had e.xpccted tr be waiterl up^.-:. lioth yesterday mora ing and this morning, by some of the men with a statement which would advise them what their attitude was. but ihey had not come. The afficial added ihat Mr. Bevier was American born md not a Russi.*in. as the Register was erroneously informed, and-was r very competent iman. He had for merly worked for tlio company in the •^nmc position, and after being out of the Vorks^ for some time had returned to resunlio his old place. So far as has yet appeared there is no angry spirit'on either side ^f the nnfortunato controversy, and for the good of ail concerned and the com niiinity at large it is earnestly hoped that an early agreement will be reach ed. i Nlmerick Not Gijilty.
