success in improving the accoustlcs.
Mr. Crothers, of Philadelphia, ob
jected to the resolution, inasmuch as
the members two years ago were not
aware that so much money was to be
spent In changing the conditions of the
hall. He criticised the decorations ns

nounced them as being In bad taste.

Most of the senators have left the
city this evening, and those remaining
will return to their homes In a day or
two, to remain until the reassembling
of the body. The main topic of discus
sion during the day has been the result
of the senatorial caucus, and In conse
quence the attention of nearly every
body who visited the upper branch has
been drawn to the successful contest
ant. There has been considerable
speculation ns to whether Mr. Penrose
will retain his seat after the election.

ing from him In which ho asserts he

Roberval, Quebec, Jan. C. At G
o'clock this morning fire broke out In
the chapel of the convent here, caused
by a lighted candle near the cradle
of the Infant Jesus setting lire to the
draperies and lloral ornamentation, in
an Instant the whole was a mass of

Sacrist nun, but the fire spread with
such rapidity that nothing could bo

were smothered in the smoke. Their

Lady of Lake St. John, In charge of the
Ursuline Sisters, a cloister order, and
one of the oldest sisterhoods In Cana
da. Usually there are about fifty young
ladies In attendance at the school, be
sides the nuns and the other attaches
of the establishment, making In all
about 100 inmates. Most of the stu
dents, however, were away for the holi
days. When the alarm was given the
nuns bravely undertook the task of
rescuing those In their charge, and In
this heroic task those who perished
gave up their lives. From floor to lloor
of the doomed building the Christian
devotees rushed through blinding
smoke and lurid llames, sounding the
alarm, and not until every one In their
charge was warned of their danger
and safely out of the building did they
turn to the saving of their own lives.
It was then too late, and overcome by
the heat and smoke seven of these he

to reach windows from which to Jump

were found, some burned terribly, and

escaped are being well cared for at the

villagers, the doors of which were
thrown open to them In their distress.
So far as known none of the scholars,

QAlNS MADE BY THE SILVER PARTY

Observe Jackson's Day.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. C The Lansing
theater was completely idled this
morning when the state bimetallic con
ference was called to order. When Mr.
Bryan entered the hall he was greeted
with deafening applause. Judge Green
reviewed the campaign of 1890 and said
that while beaten at the polls, the sil
ver forces were not conquered. The
battle of Bull Run did not decided the
civil war, nor had the battle of '00 de
cided the silver cause.
Mr. Bryan said the warm reception
accorded him prompted him to para
Phrase an old saying which would
"It Is better to have run and lost,
thun not to have run at nil." He re
viewed the campaign from the Chicago
convention until the close of the polls.
He showed the great gain made by the
silver party since '114 and said that ho
believed that with the efforts to be
made during the next four years, there
could be not doubt of a victory In 1800.
He spoke of the Bimetallic league,
which Is about to be organized In this
state, and advised that all friends of
silver, regardless of party alllllatlons,
should be enrolled under one banner.
He suggested that the legislature
should still further amend the election
laws of the state to the end that the
voters should be better protected from
Intimidation, also that the corporations
should not be permitted to contribute
funds for election purposes. Such con
tributions of corporations funds was In
direct violation of corporate charters.
1118 GREAT HIT.
He made a great hit when ho said
that while the doctrine of bimetallism
had been defeated at the polls It had
made Republicans hope that bimetal
lism would be secured before the next
presidential election. Some friends of
the-cause feared the Republicans would
manage to steal the bimetallic thun
der but If they had a desire to steal
It, he was ready to place his thunder
upon the front porch, where It would
be within easy reach of the thieves.
He spoke for nearly an hour and at
the close the audience roso nnd gave
him three hearty cheers.
Both houses of the legislature ad
journed during Mr. Bryan's speech,
and most of the members heard It.
Mr. Bryan left for Chicago this af
ternoon to attend the banquet to be
given at the Tremont house tomorrow
evening In honor of Juckson's birth
day. He Will return to Omaha Jan. 8.

PROF. BOGART'S TRIAL.
Superintendent ot the Shenandoah
Schools Is Accused ot a Serious
Crime by Clara Vates.
Pittsburg, Pa., Jan. C The trial of
Professor C. D. Bogart, on a charge
which has Interested school directors
and teachers all over the state and
which has caused a religious war at
Shenandoah, Pa., was begun today In
the criminal court. The Information
was made by James Smith, a member
of the Shenandoah school board.
Professor Bogart was formerly prin
cipal of the Knoxvllle borough schools,
this county, and hud u good reputation.
He resigned his position there last
April because Clara Vates, 13 years old,
made charges against him. Bogart
then went to Shenandoah, where last
Muy he was elected superintendent of
the schools there. The story of the
Knoxvllle charge followed him, and a
protest atrainst his election was made
to Dr. N. C. Schaeffer, state superin
tendent of public Instruction. The op
ponents wanted him removed on the
ground that an Immoral iierson can
not hold such a position. Because no
criminal Information had been made
Dr. Schaeffer decided In favor of Bo
gart. Then Smith was sent to Pitts
burg from Shenandoah to Investigate
the story and made the Information be
fore an alderman.
Today Clara Vates was the main wit
ness. She gave her testimony without
embarrassment. The pupils of her
room went to the woods that day to get
botany specimens and when she re
turned she went to the school house
to get her books. Bogart was there
and they talked of her percentages In
studies. Then, she said, he locked
the door of the room they were In
and committed the offense. The girl
stated that up to that time Bogart
had been kind and courteous to her,
nnd she often went' to his homo nights
to obtain Instructions from him. A
cross-examination occupied two hours,
and the girl's story was not materially
Mrs. Vates said that when her daugh
ter told her of the affair, the next
morning, she sent for Bogart, who de
nied the story. The case will be con
