lution For the Free Coinage 0f Sllrer
St. Louis, Nov. 29. The delegates
to the silver convention filed into con
vention hall slowly yesterday morning,
It being known that the committee on
resolutions was still engaged in the
'work of revision. Chairman "Warner,
in calling the convention to order,
stated that the order of business would
be, first, the report of the committee
on resolutions, but that any other busi
ness could be taken up while awaiting
the pleasure of the committee.
A resolution was offered by Mr.
Fitch, of Nevada, providing for the ap
pointment of a National silver commit
tee, which should have power to call
another National silver convention and
provide for the election of delegates
thereto. Also that the said National
silver committee be empowered to pro
vide for the organization of State and
National silver leagues for the promo
tion of the objects of this convention.
The following were appointed assuch

Congressman Bland, chairman of the
committee on resolutions, presented
the following report:
The National silver convention, held in St.
Louis, Mo., November 20, 27 and 28, 1889,
adopted this preamble and resolution as
their deliberate opinions:
That the demonetization of silver has
worked a practical violation of every con
tract then existing in the United States, en
tailed uncounted losses, reduced prices more
than 30 per cent, and in effect is practically
to make debts perpetual, as it takes from the
debtor the ability to pay; that it causes con
traction in the currency, which reduces
the value until there Is no profit left to the
farmer, planter or men of small capital, who
depend upon tho sale of products for returns
for their labor.
That we believe the certificate of the Gov
ernment, backed dollar for dollar by gold
and silver coin, on the product in the treas
ury of the United States, is a safe and sound
currency and has been approved by the peo
ple. That considering the contraction caused
by tho surrender of National bank notes
during the past three years and the vast
sums that must be collected by the cancella
tion of Government bonds during the next
three years, the necessity of restoring silver
is as manifest as is the justice of such a
That the gold and silver of the West, pour
ing in a steady stream upon the East for
forty years, vitalized every form of business
there and steadied and upheld the credit of
the Nation throughout the great war and
made resumption possible, and that what
wc now demand is as much more to the in
terest of the Kast than of the West as the
productions of the East exceed in value the
productions of the West.
That wo believe in equal rights of gold and
silver, and free coinage for both, and that no
nation ever had or ever will have too much
gold and silver coin.
Now, therefore, be it
Jtetolced, That tho Fifty-first Congress be
requested by this convention to provide at
its first session for opening the mints
of the United States to the free and
unlimited coinage of standard sil
ver dollars of the present weight and
fineness to be legal tender for all
debt, public or private, equal with gold and
that until such a provision is made, the
Secretary of Che Treasury be required to coin
the maximum, $4,000,000 worth of silver per
month, as now authorized by law.
The report of the committee on reso
lutions was then adopted by a vote of
135 to 7.
There was a small attendance at the
four o'clock meeting of the convention.
Chairman Warner read the ten addi
tional names of the committee at large
appointed by the chair, as follows:
New York, Edwards Pierrepont; Illi
nois, A. E. Stevenson; Kentucky, J.
McKenzie; North Carolina, Alfred E.

to Congress: J. A. Grier, of Pennsyl
vania; J. J. Field, of Missouri; C. C.
Goodwin, of Utah; J. W. Porter, of
Virginia, and J. F. Scott, of Ohio.
Chairman Warner thanked the con
vention for the kind attention and
courteous consideration shown its pre
siding officer, and, on motion, the con
vention was declared adjourned with
At night the delegates were given a
Thanksgiving banquet at the Mer
chants' Exchange, which was a bril

that Father Howlett. a young Irish

Fobt Worth, Tex., Nov. 29. It is
made public here that last Monday
night some one, haying a key to
the door and the combination of the
safe in the office of the Pacific Express
Company, at the Union Depot, entered
the office, opened the safe, took there
from $6,800, and departed without mo
lestation. The matter is as much of a
mystery as the recent bank burglary
here, when $5,000 was taken, and
there is no more clew to this than
-the other deed. Only three persons
were supposed to know the combina
tion of the safe, and they are all
trusted employee of the company.

Boston, Nov. 29. The most disas
trous fire from which Boston has suf
fered since 1872, and one in which the
property lost more than rivals the great
conflagration at Lynn on Tuesday,
broke out about 8:30 a. m. yesterday in
the six-story granite building owned
by Jordan, Marsh & Co. and occupied
by Brown, Durrell & Co., dealers in
dry goods, on Bedford street, corner of
The great fire of 1872 broke out on
the corner of Kingston and Sumner
streets, and the alarm of yesterday's
fire was rung in from the same box
which did similar duty at 7:13 p. m. on
the evening of November 9, 1872, when
the fire fiend broke Icose, and before
being subdued consumed nearly 8100,
000,000 of property.
The first alarm rung in yesterday
was immediately followed by the first
general alarm in Boston since 1872.
Yesterday's conflagration raged for six
hours, burned over two acres of terri
tory covered by magnificent structures.
As soon as Chief Webber, of the pro
tective department, arrived, it became
apparent that a long, hard fight with
the fiery element was before the de
partment, and a general alarm was sent
out, and this was soon followed by
calls upon neighboring cities and towns
for assistance. The flames were soon
pouring from all the windows and the
roof of the Brown-Durrell building.
At 8:45 they had spread to the Shoe
and Leather Exchange building,
another large granite structure adjoin
ing Brown, Durrell & Co., on Bedford
street. From both buildings the flames
swept in great masses across Bedford
street to the opposite corner, thence
across Kingston street, along Bedford
to Chauncey street, where it was
stopped in the store of Farley, Harvey
& Co., the upper stories of which were
The scenes about the fire were re
plete with excitement and activity.
The police were prompt in roping off
the streets and keeping back the
crowds, leaving ample room for the
firemen. On every corner engines
puffed, rumbled and emitted torrents
of black smoke, while hose lines by
the score lay in a twisted, tangled web
up and down the streets for blocks on
all sides. The territory bounded by
Kingston, Bedford and Chauncey streets
was the principal theater of destruc
tion, nere the conflagration leveled
every thing. Within an hour after the
first alarm sounded the whole structure
of Brown, Durell & Co.'s building col
lapsed with a tremendous crash. The
flames were darting from doors and
windows and the interior of the block
was a glowing furnace. Dry goods and
other combustible matter, with
which the houses were packed,
burned to a white heat. Granite
crumbled and iron girders melted
away like ice. The streams from the
engines were dissipated into vapor be
fore they touched the fire. Suddenly
the cry arose "the walls are falling,
back, back." The crowd 'surged back
for their lives, startled by the shout.
Firemen dropped their nozzles and ran
to save the apparatus. Great gaps
opened in the walls and bricks from
cornices dropped into the street with
A thrilling rescue from immediate
death was made by Officer Charles
Maynes, of division 2; Officer Benja
min, of division 16, and "Sleepy," the
colored attache of the city hall, about
9:45 o'clock in the building No. 80
Chauncey street. Edward E. Whiting,
a veteran fireman, helped with the hose
on the building. It grew terribly hot,
the walls threatened to fall and the
cry was raised to get back, as the
roof was caving in. A desperate
rush was made by all hands to get
out of reach of the tumbling bricks, and
all escaped save Whiting. He was
struck, knocked down and covered by
the heated debris. Officers Maynes and
Benjamin braved the furnace-like heat
and the risk of falling walls and tried
to find the buried man. "My God, can
any one help me?" was the cry they
heard. This directed them to pile of
truck and timber, under which they
found Whiting imprisoned. Frantically
they pulled and hauled at the hot
debris. Every moment they expected
to be killed with falling stones, but
bravely kept at work. They got hold
of Whiting's arms and tried to pull him
out, but the burned skin and flesh came
off in their hands. Once more they dug
away at the debris to free the burned
and injured man. They succeeded in
this and got Whiting out. It was found
that his right leg was broken, that
he was frightfully burned about the
head, arms and body, and otherwise
injured. He was driven 'with all speed
to the city hospital. It is believed that
his injuries will prove fatal.
Police Sergeant Kimball, Patrolman
Havnes and ex-Councilman David
Berry rescued seven people from the
building at the corner of Kingston and
Among the seriously injured are:
Michael Atkinson, policeman; John
Halley, hoseman; Thomas Quigley;
District Engineer Bartlett; Edward
Frohan, foreman; J. Dacey, fireman;
The most conservative estimate of
the loss is $4,000,000. The insurance
Scandal In High Life.
Troy, N. Y., Nov. 29. George S.
Walworth, a broker of New York City,
arrived here with two private detectives
in search of his wife, who, he had
learned, left New York with Jack
Verner, secretary of the Forge and
Iron Company, of Pittsburgh, Pa., and
went to the Troy House, where Verner
had registered. They followed a bell
boy into Verner's room, and it is al
leged, found Mrs. Walworth in the
room with Verner. A warrant was
procured for the detention of Verner
and Mrs. Walworth, but they left hur
riedly for Albany:
