The Stoat Disastrous Fire Ever Known
-The Commercial Importance or tue
City-How the News was Received
In New York-Excitement In Wall
Street and the Produce Markets-The
Dry doods Merchants.
[From the New York Bulletin.l
This is doubtless the most extended confla?
gration the world has ever known, since lt sur?
passes the great f re of London in 1683, that of
New York In 1835, and that of Constantinople
two years ago.
TUE COMMERCIAL POSITION OF CHICAGO
Chicago was a city of about thirty-five years
growth. During that period its increase In
population and material prosperity was greater
than that of any other city of which we have
record. At the time of its destruction lt was
tire second grain centre in the world, Odessa
bein.' the first. It was also the greatest rail?
road centre io the world, being the principal
Western objective point tor ali Eastern rail?
ways between Portland and Baltimore, and the
Northern objective point of ali railways be?
tween Rlch'uond and Galveston. The commer?
cial lmporta .ee of Chicago was primarily due
to the tact ol its relatively favorable situation
near the centre of the country that lies between
the lines of latitude whose soil and climate at
the same time favor the development of energy
and enterprise, and the production ot such
articles of vegetable and animal classification
as are cf most value to mankind.
IXCirSMENT IN WALL STREET.
As successive reports of the progress of the
fire were received at the Stock Exchange and
private offices, lt began to be considered how
much so vast a destruction of property in the
great railroad centre of the continent might
affect the general value of railway stocks,
since a majority of all our railroads connect
with lines that enter Chicago. The result of
these reflections was to render the stock mar
ket dull and weak for general shares, while
concerning many of the roads whose main de?
pendence for business is on Chicago, the stocks
tell from 5 to 7 and 7 to 10 per cent. Seven
per cent. Interest and one-quarter per cent,
commission added were bid yesterday aller
noon for money "over night;" and the more
?iously members of the Stock Exchange
lected on the calamity the more they seem
ed to be convinced ot its far reaching and
disastrous influence. It may be properly men
tioned in this connection that the strictly
banking cap'tal ot Chicago did not exceed
$10,000,000. The partial panic which prevailed
yesterday was reached the more easily in con?
sequence of the sensitive condition In which
the market has been for some days in sympa?
thy with the feverish money market abrca i,
and the growing scarcity of funds here. The I !
"tasar" speculators, too, had been maturing |1
their plans lor depressing securities, and a
more serious panic than occurred yesterday
would not have been an unnatural result.
. Lively limes are looked for in the street to?
morrow, unless the market rallies before the
hour for deliveries.
THE PRODUCE EXCHANGE.
The feeling on 'Change yesterday was one ot .
uncertainty. Various conflicting reports were i
afloat, and It was found impossible to place re-11
llance on anything. In consequence of this
but little business was done. The holders of
grain in Chicago insisted that most o', the
stock stored in that city had been destroyed,
and asked for high prices for what was sup?
posed to be left, but the buyers refused to
respond until some definite information was
obtained. Telegraphic communication having
been interrupted, no market reports were re?
ceived, and this served to increase the exist?
ing uncertainty and confusion. There was but
little excitement visible, and what little lhere
was was caused by the eagerness of the mer?
chants lo obtain the latest information In re?
gard to the progress ot the fire. Business was for
the ti me forgotten, or else confined to tbe actual
necessities of buyers. During the day private
dispatches were received by members ot the
Exchange, that as many as Alleen elevators
were destroyed, but as the telegrams failed to
give their locality or the amount of grain they
contained, they were looked upon as exaggera?
tions, sent probably tor the purpose of advan?
cing the market. Other dispatches estimated
the number ot elevators destroyed to be six,
.and this number was generally regarded as
the truth. All these dispatches, however, tail?
ed to cause anv excitement, or even specula?
tion The loss of the grain, though it may in?
terrupt many transactions, is not regarded as
so serious as the loss of the elevators, for if
these be destroyed the forwarders will be unable
toondie large quantities and forward it as
quickly as lt will be required. This at presi
a serious consid?r?t ion, lor most of the crop

crop was boused in Chicago, preparatorj

by tbe Are Saturday night a week ago, an
slight advance was the consequence, i
now that the news of the great dre has rea
ed this city, the market has advanced as mi
as three cents per pound.
THE PROVISION MARKET.
The information received go far concern
the fire has had no appreciable effect upon
provision market. This ia chiefly owing
the fact that the packing houses are tar
moved lrom the scene ot the disaster, i
they stand in but little danger. Pears, he
ever, are entertained of great financial c
tress, resulting from the destruction ot
much property. But very few salea were mt
yesterday, everything being held in abeyai
until reliable information could be obtained
IN THE DRV OOOD3 MARKET.
The excitement among the dry goods de
ers was intense over the meagre newsc
patches received, although the destruction
any of the leading dry goods houses had i
been reported up to a late hour. It was knon
however, that the fire bad reached a pol
less than a block distant, from Messrs. Fie
Leiter A Co.'s building, while the other let
lng bouses are situated but lillie beyond the!
toward the lake, and In the event ot th?
building burning no hope was felt for t
safety of the other large stores. Chica
affords an outlet for a greater amount
goods than any other city in the interior, ai
fis business men are, therefore, closely co
nected with those of this city, all the lar,
Chicago houses having offices and re
dent buyers here. Aside from the *yi
pathetic interest Ml by our merchants, the pc
sible effects upon business here of the i
most complete destruction of a city of
much commercial Importance, creates i
much anxiety amonz them as among the re;
resentatives ol the Chicago houses. The tl
and its probable results have been the topi'
ot conversation among all classes ol dealer
especially In the domestic houses, and i
event, except of local occurre nce, lias affecte
trude to such a degree since the close of oi
war. The inability of the local Insurant
companies to meet their liabilities is great
feared, and as the amount of risks held t
them ls very large the effect ot such a contli
tlngency would, obviously, be disastrous <
murchants there. .AlthOKgh no doubts are ei
tertalned of the entire soundness of the Ch
cago dry goods merchants, the loss of prope
ty will so affect the business of the city th<
Its trade for months to come will necessaril
be light, and even though their preset
indebtedness be promptly met, the lo:
of their trade during the remainder c
the fail months will be of serious lu
portance to our market. E^lmatea of th
probable loss are already placed at sever:
hundred millions, and should ibe dry good
houses with their present full slocks be d?
strayed an additional loss of many million
will be incurred. The leading jobbing and rt
tail houses in Chicago engaged In the dr
goods trade are Messrs. Field. Leiter A Co., J
V. Farwell A Co.. Bowen, Hunt & Winslow
Carson, Pirie A Co., Charles Gossage & Co
Hamlin, Hale A Co , D. W. A A. Keith A Co
and Richards, Crumbaugh A Shaw. The latte
firm removed a week or two since to the!
present location, and their lor rn er store ha
already been destroyed. No direct iniormatioi
bas been received by the representatives o
any ot these firms as to whether their store
have been burned or not, and it is greatl.
feared that ere Its progress be Hayed that poi

branch ol trade will also be swept by the dre
The leading spirits in the insurance Interes
regard the press reports in regard to the fin
as greatly exaggerated, and some of them gc
so laras to slate that the dispatches have bert
sent here with a view to affect the slock mar
ket. It has been Impossible to obtain any es?
timate of the amoila, ol Chicago property in
sured in New Tork companies; but the pre
vailing opinion is that it ls very large-proba?
bly many millions. From the confused re
ports that have arrived it bas been difficult tc
obtain a correct Idea of what part of the cits
has been destroyed or how far the fire has ex?
tended. It is believed, however, by the In?
surance men that the conflagration has, In a
great measure, been confined to ihe western
portion of the elly, and if such is the eas*
most of the houses consumed have been small
wooden structures of but little value. It is
known, however, that the fire has crossed
the river and penetrated toward Lake
Michigan; but how far the inroads have ex?
tended has not been ascertained. East of
State street ls the most valuable business por?
tion of the city. Here are situated tbe great
dry gcods firms, and it ls stated that il the fire
should reach them, the loss of the city
would be almost doubled. The Tremont House
ld In the immediate neighborhood, and lt ls
known to have been blown up to arrest ihe
progress of the flames. Most of the New York
companies have risks in this vicinity, and ir lt
should have been consumed some ot their
losses will be very heavy. The prevailing
opinion among the Insurance men, however,
Istbat all the New York companies will be able
lo pay their losses to the last cent, though it
may give some of them a great deal of trouble
lo do PO. It may be that some of the compa?
nies will be compelled to call upon their stock?
holders for additional subscriptions, but as
inls will not interfere with their financial
standing, it is expected that all ol them
will remain solvent, though some may wind
ip their affairs. With Hie Chicago companies,
However, the case different. Since their
organization many of them have possessed bur
i nominal capital, which was only represented
jn paper, and on which only a small percent
ige ol' that had been paid in. Under these cir
:umstances but few ot the companies will be
nble to meet their liabilities, and it is highly
probable that many of them will never be
Heard of acain. New York has always been a
iicavy creditor of Chicago, and our merchants
may finally be compelled to bear a heavy por?
tion of the loss. Even if the Western com?
panies are able to pay their lesses, much con?
fusion must inevitably result, and a long time
must pa?s before the claims could be settled.
Their buildings have been burned, and lt is
probable that In many cases all the books and
records have lallen prey to the flames. This
will prevent the prompt adjustment of losses,
and will lead to great tinancial embarrassment.
The New York companies are well assured of
their ability to oay. and having their books at
hand, their losses can readily be seltled. At a
late hour last evening a rumor was afloat that
three city companies had falied, but no names
could be ascertained, although Inquiries were
made. No ioundation for the rumor could be
discovered, and lt was generally believed to be
false. In a word, thu New York companies
feel perfectly sale under all circumstances and
if the fire should not have extendeU east of
State street, their losses will be paid without
any great Inconvenience.
Destruct lon of the Government Records.
WASHINGTON, October 10.
From dispatches received here to-day lt is
learned that the records of the Customhouse
and internal revenue offices at Chicago have
been destroyed. Even if it be any longer pos?
sible to ascertain the public debtors and ihe
amounts ol' their indebtedness, collections can
scarcely be enforced against a bankrupt com?
munity. In the face of BO ruinous a disaster
Congress may feel warranted In giving ex
pression to the national sympathy by remit
ting the collection of taxes for a year, at least.
The large sums involved in nnse"ttled and dis
puted revenue cases are lost to the ireasurv
beyond question. Seventeen national banks",
representing a capital ot $10,000,000,are threat?
ened with Insolvency through the destruction
ot the material security for their investments
and the collateral basis of their large tem?
porary loans. The records of the military divi?
sion of the Missouri, Including those transfer?
red from General Sherman's tormer headquar?
ters at St. Louis, have shared the common
fate. These were principally of value In con?
nection with Indian affairs, and it is not expect?
ed that any practical Injury will resuit from
their destruction. The papers and vouchers
pertaining to the Montana Indian war claims
are also lost, but the gross amount of those
claims has already been reported to the proper
committee ot Congress, and it ls thought that
the amounts due to claimants can be determin?
ed with sufficient accuracy. Chicago waa one
of the largest depots of the quartermaster and
commissary departments tor supplying the
posts In the Noithwestern Territories, and
those departments have probably lost consid?
erable quantities ot army supplies. It appears
that the county lana records ol Cook County
have been destroyed, and it will be Impossible
to escape much future litigation over titles to
real estate of Chicago. A large portion of that
city was once included In the mttllary reserva?
tion, which was some thirty years ago laid out.
and sold by the war department. The record
ol those sales is understood to be no longer in
possession of that department, and it has not
been there for many years, nor can any infor?
mation be supplied from the general land

of Hie chair.
The appeal being put, the decision of the
chair was overruled by a vote ol' 138 to 91.
Mr. Welsh then said that, as he was not to
discuss the question of ritualism, he would
with pleasure lake his seat.
Rev. Dr. Nelson, of Maryland, then submit?
ted the following :
Whereas, At the General Convention of j
18C8 the House of Clerical and Lay Delegates
did request ol the House of Bishops the setting
forth of such additional rubrics in the Book of
ot Common Prayer as in their Judgment may
be deemed necessary; and whereas Hie House
ot Bishops has not complied with the above
mentioned request; therefore, be lt
Resolved, That the House of Clerical and
Lay Deputies do hereby, In reply to message
No. 5 ot the House of Bishops, most respect?
fully and affectionately renew the request that
our right reverend fathers, assembled as the
House of Bishops, prepare and propose for the
consideration oi tue House of Clerical and Lay
Deputies some well digested scheme ot such
additional rubrics in the Book of Common
Prayer, or such further canonical legislation as
in their judgment may seem necessary.
Rev. Dr. Nelson briefly urged the removal of
the question from this arena, and to transfer
lt to the House ot Bishops, a much smaller
body. He wished to reler to our reverend
fathers In God whether this Prayer-Book, so
endeared to all, and which had endured for so
long, was to be altered. He thought that with
them the question should rest. He hoped
that the unanimous vote of the house would
be given to his resolution.
Rev. Dr. Beardsley, of Connecticut, offered
as a substitute that the house concur m the
message of the House of Bishops, that the
committee on the part of this house shall con?
sist ol five presbyters and five laymen, to be
nominated to this house by a committee ot
three presbyters and three laymen to be elect?
ed by ballot.
The question was then taken on the amend?
ment ol Dr. Beardsley, winch he had modified
so as to merely concur in the request of the
House of Bishops for the appointment of a
joint committee. Adopted.
The discussion as to the mode of appoint?
ing the committee of conference continued at
much length, but was uninteresting, the de?
cision of the house excluding allusion to
'Ritualism,'' taking from the whole debate of
the day much of the interest that would other?
wise have attached to it.
Rev. Dr. Hanchel. of Virginia, advocated an
amendment offered by him that the commit?
tee on the part of the House ot Deputies
should consist o? the committee on canons.
The question was taken on the motion of
Dr. Hanchel, when Mr. Judd, of Illinois, on
behalt of the lay delegation of that diocese,
called for the vote by orders. The motion was
rejected, the clergy of sixteen dioceses and
the laity of seventeen voting in the affirma
I rive, the clergy of twenty three dioceses and
the laity of eighteen voting in the nentlve.

"Regenerate" In Infant Baptism.
BALTIMORE, October 12.
The declaration of the bishops In council,
October ll. 1871 : We the subscribers, bishops
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the
United States, being asked, in order to the
quieting of the conscience of sundry members
of the said church, do declare our conviction
as to the meaning of the word "regenerate"
In the offices of the ministration of baptism ot
infants, and do declare that in our opinion the
word "regenerate" ls not there used as to de?
termine that a moral change in the subject of
baptism ls wrought In the sacrament. This
declaration ts signed by all the bishops.
A PERSONAL EXPLANATION !
L'entenant-Governor Ranstcr Replies
to the Washington Chronicle.
CHARLESTON, S. C., October i>, 1871.
TO TUE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
SIR-A friend of mine now in Washington
has sent me copies of the Washington Chron?
icle, of the 5th and 6th Instants, containing
severe criticisms, editorial and otherwise, on
the action of the Republican State Central
Committee ot this State, at its recent meeting
at Columbia, and anything but complimentary
notices of Its chairman.
Now, so far as I am concerned as an Indi?
vidual, I care not what the Chronicle might
say derogatory of me-my conduct as an
officer of the party ls a flf subject of discus?
sion; but when the Chronicle seeks, at least
so far as a portion of its editorial staff ls n
cerned, to make capital in certain directions,
and to carry out its purposes by abusing and
vlllifying me because I happen not to agree
with It on certain questions as to men and
measures, and to assure the administration at
Washington that we are a pack ol ignoramuses
and scoundrels, and that no significance or
importance whatsoever is to be attached to
the voice or action of the State committee,
though they may plead ever so much in the
Interest ot the life of the party as well as that
of the ind vidual members of it, and in the in?
terest of outrages liberty and law, then It be?
comes my duly to speak.
The Chronicle says "such a man as Lieuten?
ant Governor Rinsler ls totally unfit to be
chairman of a ward committee, much less of
the State commltee," Ac; and speaking ot
the committee and the party in general, it
says, "and so of dozens of others having no
brains, no education, and less than no charac?
ter;" and volunteers the following advice:
that "the committee attend to Its business,
and as a first step in that direction, let lt muz?
zle Its chairman."
Now, we are told that the editorial staff of
the Chronicle consists of that staunch and per?
secuted loyalist, ex-Governor Holden, of
North Carolina; Mr. J. M. Morris. (Mr. Morris
being chief editor,) and Mr. Myron Fox. If
this be so, bow could these latter gentlemen
allow such complimentary allusions to myself
to creep into the editorial columns of their
paper, the Chronicle, when Just after my nom?
ination as a candidate for Lieutenant Gover?
nor ot this State, when conducting the Dally
Republican, which did yoeman service for us
as a party, referring to myself, they said
Hon. A. J. Ransler was nominated for Lieu?
tenant-Governor by acclamation unanimously,
and with great and prolonged applause. He
ls acknowledged even by opponents to be a
Just, honorable and capable man. Whatever
charges of corruption are tossed to and fro,
no man or newspaper has yet put one on him.
The Reformers boast of their candidate for
Lieutenant-Governor as a gentleman of the
first order. By l>>? side we place our candi?
date, and challenge comparison in any and
every attribute of manhood.
With one heart and one voice tbe Republican
party enters on this campaign, to which there
must be no end but victory !
If I was "Just, honorable and capable" then,
am I any the less so now?
I was chairman of the State committee, too,
then, having Berved two years previous to the
lime the above was written, and no one knew
this better than the two gentlemen referred
to. Has this ignorance and want of character
overtaken me since then? If so, I demand
the proof; or am I to be muzzled because I
dare utter my opinions and differ from the
Chronicle. No! The Washington Chronicle,
whatever its influence or ability, cannot
"muzzle" me, the Stale committee, nor the
Republican party of this State, because lt
makes certain demands of the administration
in the Interest of its very existence. The ob?
ject of these editorial notices In question,
written just at this particular time, ls well un?
derstood, even by the most ignorant here, if
not in Washington. Cannot the Chronicle ef?
fect Its object, viz. : to break down what?
ever of confidence the administration may
have in the party here or its leaders,
and thereby checkmate them in what?
ever they may attempt, without the ad?
vice and consent of the Chronicle, with?
out resorting to low and vulgar abuse.
The writer of these effusions, however, is wri?
ting at a comparatively safe distance; let him
go on. Oae thing ls most certain, the Chroni?
cle cannot aid the party here in closing up Its
ranks and securing the electoral votes of the
State for the Republican party of the country
In the campaign of 1872 by these low, vulgar
and unwarrantable attacks upon Individual
members of it, and by venting its spleen and
dragging into every question of South Caro?
lina politics old feuds and individual Issues
which should have been settled long since; nor
can it, or anybody else, "muzzle" the chair?
man of the committee referred to, except by
brute force. He will not down at the bidding
of the Chronicle or any one else. He demands
(air play, and both as a man and an officer of
ihe party, invite examination, Investigation
or criticism ot his acts and doings, provided
it is confined within decent and legitimate
limits. He knows his rights, and knowing,
dare defend them whenever attacked, though
the attacking party be the Washington Chroni?
He will never suffer himself to be kicked
with impunity and then turn around and lick
the boot that Indicted the blow.
In conclusion, permit me to assure the
writer of the criticisms in question and others
nearer home, knowing their fears and the
secret of their studied onslaught on me just
now, whatever their pretensions, that I am
not a candidate for any political office, nor is
it at all likely that I Bhall accept, or putfmyself
in a position to obtain one, if to do so means
that I shall crouch and cringe at the knee of
those who forcibly' remind me of the snake
that was taken in a louse and warmed, ?tc,
&c., or that I shall be acuzzled because I dare
utter my opinions. I sssii continue to utter
then? In the interest of tao- party of which I
am a member, and of the place to which I be?
long, a? long as God gives me the power to
raise say voice or wield a pen, with a total dis?
regard aa to whether or not I please the
Washington Chronicle or any one else parti?
cularly. "Muzzle its chairman !" Try it !
