It was also the residence of August Hassey, Esq., widower, and his sons, Edward and August, who lived on the
second and third floors. The building was owned by
August Hassey senior. On a Saturday night in January 1879
Edward Hassey "in a nearly helpless condition, was staggering through the hall."
He made so much noise that he woke Dr. Ermentraut.
Edward raised "the alarm of fire". There as a lot of smoke.
In the middle of the staircase between the second and third floors was a smoldering fire of
"several pieces of very dry willow-wood well saturated with kerosene".

The Lichtenstein Brothers
Lichtenstein Brothers were cigar manufacturers.
The company was founded by Benjamin Lichtenstein. They employed large numbers of workers in their
factories but also employed large numbers of women and children who worked in their
tenement apartments. The tenement workers made a cheaper
grade of cigars and were paid much less than the
factory workers. The child cigar makers were the subject of many child
labor studies along with mine workers, cotton pickers,
mill workers, newsboys and others.
Families lived and worked with the tobacco in the same crowded tenement apartment.
Lichtenstein & Bros. was the second largest manufacturer of cigars in New York city in 1875.
The Samuel Gompers Papers, Volume 1 stated that there were about 25 houses
occupied by tenement workers in 1873. By 1875 there were 78.
A campaign to end
tenement cigar worker was opposed by the cigar makers,
especially Lichtenstein Bros. & Co.
See Children of the tenements
"At the outset of the investigation a secretary of a cigarmakers'
trades union in the city of New York entered a tenement-house owned by Lichtenstein & Co.,
cigar manufacturers, and was proceeding to interrogate the inmates, who are mostly Bohemians,
when he was forcibly ejected. He had his assailant arrested, and on the trial before
Police Justice Powers, the Cigar Manufacturers' Association, through their counsel,
sought to show that the complainaiit was not empowered to enter any factory without
the permission of the owner. In this the police justice concurred, and dismissed the case."
Benjamin Lichtenstein (1840-1897)
(1885 Annual Report, Volume 2
By New York (State). Department of Labor. Bureau of Statistics, New York (State). Bureau of Labor Statistics)
Birth: 1839 Bavaria
"BENJAMIN LICHTENSTEIN, merchant, was born in Hollstadt, Bavaria, Aug. 16, 1839.
His father was Salome Lichtenstein, a merchant. Educated in New York city,
the young man served as errand boy and clerk in various stores, beginning with a
salary of $1.25 per week. In 1862, he ventured to engage in the wholesale
jobbing of tobacco and cigars in New Orleans and met with excellent success,
but illness caused him to abandon business in the South and he started a manufactory
of cigars in New York city under the name of Lichtenstein Bro's & Co. Energy,
determination and business skill brought him rapidly to the front. He is now
president of The Consolidated Cigarette Co. and a trustee of The Lichtenstein Bro's Co.
His means have been judiciously invested in real estate, which is constantly growing
in value and is already worth about a million dollars. He owns 13 and 640 Broadway,
442-6 10th street, and 135-141 Avenue D, free of incumbrances. He lives quietly,
is a member of the Freundschaft club, and is a worthy man. Nov. 29, 1863, he
married Sara Katten of New Orleans and has six children: Salome K., Alexander,
Melvin, Eleanor, Stella and Harry Everett Lichtenstein."

well known in this city and throughout the country in connection with the cigar industry,
died last Friday of heart disease, at the Hotel Netherland, Fifty-ninth street and Fifth
avenue, in his forty-seventh year. Mr. Lichtenstein was born into the cigar industry, being
the son of "Moses" Lichtenstein, founder of the firm of Lichtenstein Bros. & Co., who
were prominently connected with the trade a number of years ago.
He was buried in Salem Fields Cemetery. He was the supervisor of
the factories of
United Cigar Manufacturing in Harrisburg, Pa. and an expert in purchasing leaf.

"The cigar packers, who are the aristocracy of the cigar trade, are in trouble.
Lichtenstein Brothers, of Second Avenue, have reduced the prices paid to
their packers from 10 to 50 cents per 1,000 cigars. A packer can pack from 2,000
to 9,000 cigars a day, according to the brand, and it is upon
the skill of the packer in arranging the cigars in the box to tempt the eye that the success
of the manufacturer in great measure depends.
The packer had a different union from the "makers".
1877: October 16,
A joint committee of German, Bavarian and English speaking cigar makers unions
asked for higher wages.
When the request was denied about 5,000 male and female cigar workers

earnestly opposed to the proposed amendment to the Schedule F of the "Wilson bill
fixing an ad valorem duty of 75 per cent on tobacco in its raw state and 100 per
cent on manufactured tobacco and cigars. Such an enactment would result disastrously
to the tobacco-growers and utterly
annihilate the cigar manufacturing industry of this country" (Numerous publications)
"In February, 1895, defendant, The American Tobacco Company, acquired
