William II. Itedden. fort man of the la
borers cmplojed at the stores, dl-coverHl
the fire ut T o'clock as the men wero about
to begin work. Tho heavy iron shutters
made it dIClcult for tho firemen to obtain
access to the upper floors, and when they
at last gained an entrance It was found
that the fifth, tlxth nnd seventh floors
were on fire.
Depito tho Immense amount of water
poured Into the building. It was after 11
o'clock before the fire was extinguished.
Chief Croker had started for his quarters
and several engine companies were about
to leave when tl.o fire bur&t out again on
the sixth Hoor. and required the attention
of the firemen for an hour longer.
Many of tho firemen i.arrowly escaped
losing their lives, somo of them sliding
down tho elevator rope through the dense
smoke to the ground floor.
Among the goodj destrojed was tho col-b-ctlnn

nature of a collapse in all months
Speculations swept through the market in
waves and consisted for the mo. part of
liquidation by holders w ho had held through
the late decline stubbornly. Weak cables,
weakness In Wall street, heavy receipts In
tho South, weak Southern apot markets
foreign selling presrire, and an almost total
ubb-enco of speculative support of any kind
were tho factors which created havoo ia
bull circles and prompted the bears to in
vade their opponents territory.

and predictions for still heavier receipts and

As the two rlng of the county Democracy

bio agreement in reg-irel to the trouble which
h..d culminated In a double-barreled conven

committee will meet net Monday In tho
Midland Hotel in Kansas City to arrange
for the holding of tho primaries.
Chairman Scibert expresses confidence In
the outcome of the primary. To a Republic
reporter, he said:
"Tho State Committee tper.t two das de
liberating over the Kansas City troubles.
We wero confronted with two tickets and
two county committees, both claiming to bts
regular. A continuation of the.-e two tickets
in the Held would havo resulted In the de
feat of both. It was the desire- of the State
Comtnittco that the local factions settle
their own differences and agree upon one
ticket, but. after two weeks' eifort. this was
found to be Impossible.
"The committee, therefore, had no alterna
te o but to place the contest back with the
pcoplo under a primary, which will be
conducted as to Insure ab-oiuto fairness to
nil Interests. Lach bide will be given equal
T.t.roKetitntion In iudces and clerks The
pulling places will bo located so as to best
met tha convenience of voters Lvery Dem
ount tntltled to vote will be given an op
portunity to cist his ballot without offensive
Intel ference from uny quarter. Kvery bal
lot will bo honestly counted.
"Tho Stato Commlttco has no right nor
deslro to say who fhall constitute tho ticket
of the Jackson County Democracy. It has
but one purpose to subserve In the settle
ment of tho unfortunate party differences
existing there, nnd that is to afford the
Democrats' of that county equal opportunity
to pclcct their own ticket. "The btate Cora
mltteo will pursue. In tho management of
the primary, tho strictest impartiality be
tteopn the factions. No one will be given an
advantage or any just cause to complain.
"The settlement of these party differences
Is now up to tho Democracy of Jackson
County, and tho committee firmly believes
that a ticket fairly and honestly nominated
will be elected from top to bottom."
