THE FIHE AT HOUEN. |'i DttixUch to London Times. IHortH, France, Aprils?.—l have come hero to-* day to boo the roina of the Theatre desArts, do-, stroyidby fire on Tuesday night. The doors were on the point of being opened at a quarter-post 7 last Tuesday evening to admit a crowd waUlngout- I side when the lire oroko out. The curtain being 1 first art ablaze from a stage gas Jot in the wings Just • * behind it, the flames spread with omazingrapldlty,. i and In a couple of hours the buildings were gutted. ; The actors wore dressing for the performance of' i “Hamlet," a musical adaptation In llvo acts and seven tableaux, the music by Ambrolso Thomas. Tbo principal performers, whoso dressing-rooms wore upon a level with tbo stage, or uuthe first story, saved them solves easily, though the only exit available was < the (dago door, with the customary narrow op- ■ • preaches. The real victims were tbo unfortunate ■ { “supers" and chorus-singers, who wore dressing' 1 obovu on the third, foorth, and fifth stories. Smoko ■ and flame barred their descent, and they could only .•crowd to tbo upper windows in full view of Iho throng which was accumulating in the streets be low. They consisted of H 5 soldiers of the Sventy fourth lleglment of the Lino, together with forty member* of the chorus, and their appearance at the high windows In ail tbo tuwdrlnessof stage at • dire, terror-stricken and helpless us they wore, one can well believe to have excited a con siderable sensation among tbe crowd below. These latter, however, were fertile in resources. The inhabitants of bouses opposite the back of tbo theatre brought down their mattresses In profusion, ,-tho street was soon lined with them, and tbo Incar , ccrated troupe, there being nothing else for it. dropped down from their tremendous height, and one uy one wore helped up or carried ail to the Hotel uhm more or Ices injured. Meanwhile the crowd waiting at the doors in front had not been idle. The building Is quite ejosoto the Seine, and tho spectators who Imd been waiting for admission soon formed a chain, under the di rection of tho police authorities, and passed water to the burning buildings until the few lire engines with which tho town is supplied could bo brongbt to bear. Everyone I have spoken to to-day deplores tbe absencoof a fire-escape. If one could have been employed at tbe rear of tho building in Assisting thu unfortunate artistes from their lofty dressing rooms there seems no reason why o single lifo should have been Inst. As it Is, at the timel write seven people are known to bo dead, and thirteen . lying at tho Hotel Bleu and elsewhere more or less < tangerously injured. The roll call of the Seventy- I 'mirth Hegfment this morning showed five more s oldiorw to bo missing, and their bodice supposed to Ueturlod beneath tho ruins, which it will take >A<mc lim e to remove. /Chore i .ro, of course, some singular escapes re coiled. One soldier, well known us a gymnast, to»k aflj'irglcap, head-foremost, as 1 am crcdl bly aasm cd by eye-witnesses, from the fourth floor wln< low, and, having manured to light on his feet with, no bones broken, set to work at oncost the pumui with a will. Agalm/t this escape one may set U lO fate of the leader of the choir. Tbo poor fulln w struggled to an upper window, fell faint, am] was burnt alive In tbo presence of the crowd bub )W. Three figures btand out prominently from ainoi ig the rest in tbo awful confusion within and without the theatre. M. Guillemot was to have sustained the leading baritone character of UamlAt, and to his dressing-room flocked many of his brother actors and actresses when theory of tire was wised. As if born to It, lie took command at once, and guided them one by one through the fire ami smoke to the stage door till all wene In safety, but one; this was Madame {Preys, tbo second figure of my trio, a lady who, Huatalnlngta subordinate part herself, had a hus band engaged lu some minor capacity about tho theatre. She refused to leave It till she had found him. Despite M. Guillemot's entreaties and com mands, she run through the burning corridors call ing him by name, ami persisted lit mounting to tho ■upper stories In search of him, though some force vos used to prevent her. At last, when a respond ing voice anawerod hera and she knew that her husband was In safety, the knowledge came too late. £ho sank with a yielding floor. Into the anldst of tbo flames, and her body has not yet been recovered. Madame Hauler, a poor dresser about tbo theatre, Is my remaining heroine. -She was aumalriemt, with the “supers," and there. Jammed In a corner of a small window, she wat observed to bo helping her fellows out to the air and encouraging them to drop. After ten min utes of this, and when all at her window ware dls 3>osed of, she was observed to grow faint; but she lad strength to grasp a rope thrown to her from u neighboring window, and, lying It round her waist, she made the leap. The rope broke, she fell on the abutment of a wall, and was taken up all but dead.* Her family are watching her night and <luy, bat, along with many other Injuries, she boa Huuerud concussion of the Drain, and is little likely to recover.
