Mr. Orton Intrrrlcwrd on the Late Tlarr
Kansas Crrr, September 22. A special
to the Times from Aicuton, says: Tlie

the tragedy between Orton's circus men and '
clttrcns Is to the cITcct that Hon. A. W. '
ilann is still alive with some prospect of liis

are not serious) injured and will recover.
The towns ot Burr Oak and Washington
were In a fever of excitement at last ac
counts. The direct caibc ot tlie out
break, as related to a Time rcpre
scntatirc by a leading citizen of
Burr Oak, b. as follows: On Friday
Orion's circus arrived as hilled and cave
two pcrf ormances. As ts generally the case
there were numerous people front thecotin-J
try present, prominent among this element
were a number of cowboys, some twenty in
number. During tlie afternoon perform
ance the cowboys, assisted by other roughs
from l.Hrr Oak, hooted and hissed the per
formers to such an extent that tlio manage
ment was provoked, and or
der was demanded. Then again,
when the concert batchers were selling
tickets, a man named Elliott, from
Mankato got into an altercation with nno of
them and was knocked silly b Claude
Powers an adoptra' s-'.n of MKm Orton.
TirLs created ipilte a ditnrliance. and from
that time on Elliott with a gang ot cow
boy ron.tantl followed tlie circus men and
aggravated them in many ways. The same
crowd attended the evening performance
and renewed their riotous conduct As the
showmen were taking duwn their tents they
were followed about by tbe cow boys
nntil one nf the furu.rr was knocked down,
when the cry,
went up from the eiicu crowd, an expres
sion which denotes a fuss, and also
In summon all hands. A general ftcht
ensued, but at CiU time nn shot had been
fired. When the train was loaded the cow
Ikivs nit it in two in setcral places, placed
loanl tinder the cars' andmaile threats of
'caring uu the track ahcat Dunn? tlie ex
ritetiient a shot was fired from thecowbojs.
Kllhdt demanded the arrest of the showman,
and sent fnr Mavnr Jlann, and lie .shortly
armed ami cndcatonsl to restore quiet.
Ills appeals had no effuct nn the crowd and
another oihn of bullets came from the
riictLS train which was now ready to pull

The Cleveland Flats Acaln tbe Scene ol
Cosllr Canflarstlons The Fires Ertdsattf
the Work uf Incendiaries.
C-Bvcutxn. 0., September 2L
Anolher Are broke out in tha lumber
yards en the flats at eleven o'clock to
day la the dry-bouse ot Monroe Bros.,
above Jefferson Street. TnU flre was
confined lo the yards of Monroe Bros.,
although It continued to burn until
night, at 3 p. m.f when another alarm
was g-ven and It was found that another
fire bad broken out In ths yards of
Brown, Strong & Co., the next yard to
Monroe Bros., bnt situated some dis
tance from it. As the flre la Monroe
Bros.' Yard was under control. It Is not
thought that the second flre In Brown,
Strong & Co. was In any way connected
with It, butthat the fires are the work of
an orginized band of Incendiaries. Fears
are entertained of anoth:r cauflisratlon,
similar to that ot two weeks ago, and
neighboring towns have been called upon
for assistance. Tno engines, one from
FJyrls, and one from Akron, bare- al
ready arrived, and others from San
dusky and Palnesvllleare now on the way
by special trains.
9. p. m. The lire la Monro Bros-' Is
under under control, but tha ono in ths
yards of Brown, Strong & Company Is
Mill burning fiercely, and has compelled
the firemen to seek new locations for
their engines. Steamers from Ashtabula
and FalnesvIIIe are jait puttl-ig their
first stream oa the dimes. Tha Con-iot-ton
A'aliey Railroad C-.Lpaoy hava a
larga number of cars oa la.Irsldc tracts
alongside of Brown, Strong & Company's
yards, and ithlch will probably be
burned. The tracks of the Connottoa
arc Impassab'e, the rails having been
badly warped by tbe hest. Tho lines ot
the Bankers & Merchants' Telegraph
Company arealso caughtln the fire. Two
p.ics have already been complete.y
uurcedduwn, and some of the wires
Midnight Although now under con
tro, he tire is still burning In Monroe
B-oibers and Browa, Strong k. Co.'s
yards. Monroe Bros. Co.'s loss will
be 553 000, on which they have 8150,000
Insurance. Browa, Strong 4. Co. will
suffer to ths extent ot 5100,000, w.th la
tnrance of $175,000.
There Is no question but that there U
an organized gang of lire bugs aad that
Ihey are responrlole for the flre of twq
weeks ago, as well as the one to-night.
Tbe police made a dozen arrests of an
piclous characters to-night, and claim ta
have positive proof of the guilt of a num
ber ol them. Another aiarm was sound
ed Irom the west side to wh.ch a porlioc
of the department hive responded.

The Union finding the manufacturers de
