Of the 29 bodies only one was that of a man, there bring 11 children and 17 women. As the 14 hearses carrying these unknown 29 victims of the disaster passed, an unusually large crowd stood respectfully on the sidewalks, making a line extending several blocks to the pier whence tbe ferry carried them over to the Long Island shore. The men stood with bowed and uncovered heads, and by the far ths greater portion of the women and children gathered fiong the street, knelt Even those Who are ordinarily phlegmatic and undemonstrative har- ed the sorrow that all seemed to feel, and sobs ahook ths women while tears streamed down the cheeks of the men. The cortege continued through the street lined with mourning thousand until it became a long procession of funerals wending their way to the cemetery. General Daniel E.

Thera Is an impression here that tha federal officials charged with the duty of inspecting steamboats have been negligent and Inefficient and that they are gravely at fault In not having don what they might have done to avoid what has happened. You will agree wilh me. I am snrq that a prompt and thorough investigation of all the facts is of prime Importance as well to fix responsibility foi the jmst as to provide guarantee for tha future. Sincerely yours, DANIEL E. SICKIJ5S. Coroner Berry stated today that more than 200 witnesses had been summoned to appear at the Inquest Monday. Among the stories which have rnmi 'to the investigating officers, was one from Charles A. Long, who was a passenger on ths Slocum to the effect that the fire was first discovered when tha steamer was off 58rb street, near the lower end of Blackwells Island. This point is more than three miles below 138th street, where the first reports said tlie fire was discovered. Yesterday a deck hand told the coroner that the fire really started off street, hut the point namEight ed by Long is a mile and a half below that place and nearly six miles from the point on North Brother island where the Slocum was beached. . - Paris.
