Washington, Oct. 16. The first sad
rites over the remains of the late Justice
Samuel Freeman Miller, of the supreme
court, were performed this afternoon in
the chamber of the court with a simplicity
that was typical in death of the life of the
dead justice. Shortly after 2 o'clock tho
door of the court room were opened for
the admission of those who had been in
vited to take part in the ceremonies. The
chair on the right of the chief justice,
formerly oocupied by Justice Miller, was
draped in black, and this was the only
mourning "decoration in the chamber.
Within the roiling that separates the bench
from the attorneys practicing before court,
were floral tributes sent by friends
of the deceas-ed jurist. Space was reserved
for the casket in the center of the railing

cause of Ireland before the people of that
country and who arrived at Cherbourg
yesterday, reached this city this morning.
In au interview today, Mr. Dillon said that
after the yacht on which he and Mr.
O'Brien made their escape had been out
two days, the supply of lubricating oil ran
out, and in consequence it was impossible
to light the yacht's lights. This made it
dangerous sailing inside of such a crowded
waterway as the channel, and several times

passing steamers, some of which came
perilously near the yacht Mr. O'Brien's
sole object in refusing to face his accusers
to the end iu Tipperary, wa to keep his
encasement in the aid of the Irish cause
in America. He was confident that tho
mission to that country would meet with
success. The Nationalist party were in
perfect accord and Ireland had implicit
confidence in Mr. Paruell. The death of
Mr. Gladstone or tho bankruptcy of tho
national league were the solo hopes of the
Tories in their fight against the par
liamentary agitation for Irish home rule.
Mr. Dillon and O'Brien will remain in
Paris for eight days when they will pro
ceed to Harve, where they will take pass
age for New York.

Cleveland. O.. Oct. 10. An exnlosion
occurred in the Bessemer department of
Syracuse, N. Y., Oct. 16 The magnifi
cent Leland hotel, the most modern and
finest appointed hotel in central New
York, is today nothing but a mass of
smoldering ruins. It was 12:45 this morn
when the fire was first discovered in the re
gion of the kitchen, located on the second
floor in the rear of the west side of the
building. Inside of fifteen minutes the
building was in flames from end to end,
and before thirty minutes had elapsed tho
walls had fallen, with the exception of the
northeast corner. The whole building
was one seething furnace, to which was
added the horror that many lives were in
volved. At first it was feared that tho
loss of life was about thirty, but, as the
night wore along the number of missing
and dead was reduced to seven or eight.
When the flames began to sweep through
the hotel. Night Clerk Jones set the auto
matic fire alarm bell ringing, and beforo
the rudely awakened guests could realize
what was tho matter, the flames and smoke
rushed through the halls cutting off the
usual means of escape. Each room was
provided with a common rope fire escape,
and by means of these many lives were
saved. The burning hotel viewed from
tho street presented a scene which will
never be forgotten. It was agonizing in
the extreme. At many windows of the
five stories of the burning building could
be seen men and women piteously calling
for help, or making their escape by means
of the rope appliances. In a window in
the fifth story a man and woman were
struggling in each other's arms. The wo
man evidently wanted to throw herself out
of the window. Below them was a sea of
flames. Afterward they were lost to view.
On the fifth floor, toward the Fayette
street side, four women appeared at a win
dow, their screams for help being heard
above the din nnd roar. Tho firemen
shouted to them to stay whero they were.
Tho hook and ladder as put into position,
and the evils of overhead wires were again
demonstrated. Tho wires were in the way
and prevented the raising of the ladders.
Minutes seemed hours while one of the
ladder men mounted the rounds and cut
the wires. Among the frightened women
at the windows was Annie Cummings, ono
of the servants. Her companions tried to
persuade her from jumping headlong into
the street. While the ladder meu were at
work hoisting the ladders, willing hands
had hold of the jumping net. The Cum
mings woman jumped with the evident in
tention of landing in the net. In her de
scent she struck the wires, and her body
bounded over and over, and she fell a
bruised and mangled heap seven feet from
Meanwhile theladuernvm were working
with a will and succeeded in placing the
extension ladder against the building.
A cry of horror rang out from the specta
tors, wnen it was found it was too short,
but was quickly succeeded by a cheer,
when one of the laddermen mounted tho
ladder, nnd. standing on the topmost
round, reached up and helped down the
three women. It was tho work of a hero.
Had tho Cummings woman waited a mo-

CORA TANNER'S ESCAPE.
Cora Tanner the actress made hor escape
in this way: Upon being aroused, she
rushed into the hall and dashed into the
first open room, which was occupied by a
gentleman who was about to lower him
self by the fire-escape. She cried to him,
"For God's sake save me!" and the man
stopped in his flight and adjusted the es
cape to Miss Tanner. He lowered her to
the ground and then followed. Miss Tan
ner was not seriously injured, but the
nalms of her hands were lacrpated bv
holding so tightly to the rope. Miss Tan
ner saved her jewels and $5W in cash and
valuables, having grabbed them up nastily,
thrust them into a jewel case, and tied it
about her neck. Miss lanner was taken
to the Vanderbilt house and attended to
in the ladies' parlor.
The other members of her company are
also at the Vanderbilt house. Miss Dupree
and Miss Klein, both of the same com
pany, had narrow escapes. They were on
the fifth floor, and would doubtless have
Cerished had it not been for the courageous
oy who ran the elevator. They croped
around the hall until they heard a shout to
come to the elevator. They followed the
sound of the voice and found the car.
They were taken down 6afely, although
the names shot into the elevator at nearly

Capt. William J. O'Connor, of the
Merchants protective police, and the
superintendent's chosen aud trusted friend,
makes the following statement regarding
the shooting of Chief of Police Henuessy
"We left the central police station about
ten or fifteen minutes past 11 o'clock. We
walked up the west side of Rampart street
to Girod street, where we parted, the chief
saying, "Don't come any further with me
now. You go on and look after your busi
ness." As we parted the chief started to
wards Basin street, taking the down-town
side of Girod street. I took the up-town
side of Girod street, and walked out
in the direction of the river. On
my way I met a city policeman,
and a boyan officer. I had just reached
the corner of Dryad and Girod streets,
when I heard a loud report of a shotgun,
and, turning quickly around looking to
wards Basin street, I saw the flashed and
heard two more loud reports. The flashes
came from the front of the two-story
frame house at the uptown river corner of
Girod and Basin streets. Almost simul
taneously with tho reports of the shot
guns, three or four pistol shots, fired in
quick succession from the lower side of
the street, rang out. These last reports
must ha'e been the chief's return of the
murderers fire. I at once started on a
quick run towards Basin street, two blocks
distant. I heard the chief call "Oh, Billy!
Billyl" I hurried towardv.he spot whence
the cry came, and found the chief sitting
on the door step of a house on Basin street,
between Girod nnd Lafayette streets.
As I came up he said to me:
"They have given it to me, and I cave
them back the best I could." Bending
over the chief, I said to him, "Who gave it
to you. Dave?" He replied, "Put your ear
down here." As I knelt down again, he
whispered the word, "Dagoes."
The tragedy was one which the chief and
his more intimate friends had regarded as
within the range of possibilities for some
years past, and for two or three years he
has always been accompanied by soma
trusty friend on his way home. Last
night he walked to the door of his resi
dence, and, pausing a moment to draw his
latch-key from his Docket, turned into the
doorway. It was while in this position,
his side turned toward the assassins, that
tho first two shots the weapons being
double-barreled shot guns, and one barrel
of each being fired at a time rang out.
As quickly as the ambushed men could
cock the guns, the second barrels were

without masks or visible disguise, entered
the first chair car, pretending to be news
agents selling papers, covered the
passengers with their revolvers and
compelled them to hand over their

escape, as the train was leaving the sta

The chair so holds it
Air. Ternll I have several reasons for
introducing my motion. We have already
spent several weeks trving to locate tb
capital at Oklahoma City and it has been
vetoed by the governor I think If a Mil
locating the capital at Guthrio wan pre
sented to the govprnor he would veto it.
We are still in our infancy ami do not
know where the center of population will
be. It may be at Tohee. It is unnecessary
to keep up this excitement.
Air. Merten There ?ecms to be a dHno-
sition to railroad this bill through without
giving the members of this hous a chaoc
to know what is in the bill There are
many things about the bill I don't under
stand. The bill should go to tho commit
tee and be examined by them. What in
there in that bill the gentlemen wish to
conceal? I do not presume that ordinarily
tnese gentlemen would ak u to vote for a
thing we know nothing about. If there is
any real estate scheme in the bill, wo
should all have a chance. I believe King
