Shortly before 10 o'clock yesterday morning the upper floor of the building,-gave way without. warning, carrying the other floors down with it and busying 'hundreds of men" in the ruins. Twenty-two bodies have been taken so far from the debris and every hospital in Washingtoil'' is filled with injured. The house in which Lincoln died on the other side of the street from the theater where he WHS shot and which is still sentimentally kept 'intact, WHS that fatal night,,looked down upon a scene of agony, excitement and grief which even the great crime of le*G"> • could not parallely And'the? horrors of .the scene were by^iio means lessened by the knowledge that a blunder, surely in this case almost *^tj(fse than a' erim.§," was the cause of : th;e.'tragedy., '• The evidence as found in official records appear conclusive that as long ago 4 s 1S ^5 i«ui# building, which the government.- purchased after the assassination aud used us an. army museum, was officially proclaimed by congress an {tost. •-.•/; -, •;•."•:•. •' . • •;.,-.. •.-:•••' I f '• Tho;|rhirtedi«te' cause of ;tho disaster soine'to have been tho-ex-; cavBtibns being carried on by the ytta&. department under the building for th6 purpose of putting in an electric plant, although if this is the case, Jt is'"' difficult: to explain the fact thai the top floor gave way first., / Building Ins'pector Entwisle says that last week application was made-to him 'for a permit to underpin the building, but he declined to permit it, as it Was a government building and came under the direct supervision of the federal officers.

Within an hour :he news was known all over Washing-" ton and hundreds ,of- anxious relatives and friends swarmed to the vicinity of the old theater. • . Women appealed anxiously to. every bystander for information about some' particular .person,-while men came with tears in their eyes and imploringly be- lought the policemen to let them through the police lines that they might obtain 8(>im< knowledge of their friends and relatives. A general fir.e alarm was turned in a few minutes itfte.r the crash and then all the ambulances in the city were summoned. As quickly as possible the police and iremen • formed a rescue party and •eady hands assisted them to take out ;he dead and wounded. In less tha'n 'an hour., about 25 persons Had been taken out. and wvery few minutes thereafter some tttill form would lie borne on a stretcher from the; building. • '" Police wagons,, ambulances-, icarria'ges apd vehicles of every description were S ressed into service f dr'taking'away tti^ ead and injured.
