SEVERAL CRUSHED TO DEATH.
Heroic Work Done by Rescuers In
Cincinnati During the Intense
CINCINNATI, Ohio, July 17.— At 1:45
o'clock this afternoon lire broke out in the
four-story building on Water street just
east of the suspension bridge, occupied by
Hormesch ,& Co., and spread so
rapidly that Bookkeeper Simpson had to
jump from the second story.
The lire sDread to the five-story tobacco
warehouse of Seaman & Co, at 23
and 25 Front street, Smith's rive-story
warehouse, 27 Front street, 'and Klein <fc
Quirks four-story commission-house, 19
Walnut stieet. So fierce did the fire burn
that the firemen despaired of saving Nel
son Morris' warehouse, but they finally
succeeded in doing it.
The heat was intense and several",flrernen
were prostrated. The suspension bridge
was endangered, but prompt work saved
it. An hour after the fire started the
Hermesch walls began to fall and were
quickly followed by those of other build
ings until only the Klein &, Quirk build
ing was intact. Several companies were
sent to the rear of IBifl structure to play on
tlie debris and adjacent property.
There had been rumors of the dangerous
condition of this building, and they were
speedily veritied. The smoke and steam
obscured from view the remaining walls
from the firemen working beneath them,
and they did not Bee them rock and sway
a full minute before they came crashing
down. Many spectators saw the danger,
but not in time to warn the nreraen.
The walls buried almost a score of fire
men. As soon as possible every man
rushed to the spot, the fire was forgotten,
and superhuman efforts were made to re
move the debris.

who is lying at his home with a broken
leg, was stricken with congestive apoplexy
last evening, and for a short time his fam

FERDINAND WAS ACCUSED
Charged by a Sofia Paper With
Inciting the Attack on
A Representative of the Prince Re
fused an Audience by the Ex-
BULGARIA, Sofia, July 17.— The condi
tion of ex-Premier Stambuloff was slightly
improved this morning. He is perfectly
conscious and is able to personally thank
M. Petkoff for his efforts in his defense
when attacked by his assailants.
Stambuloff was able to identify the per
sons who attacked him, and has given
their names to the authorities. Count
Goluchowski, Prime Minister of Austria,
has telegraphed from Vienna to Mme.
Stambuloff a message of sympathy, and all
the foreign Consols in Sofia have commu
nicated similar expressions. The most
serious of the wounded man's symptoms
arise from the great loss of blood and the
possibility that meningitis may supervene.
Stambuloff 's coachman has been arrested
on suspicion of connection with the assas
sins who attacked the ex-Premier. The sus
picion is strengthened by his readiness to
stop the carriage when ordered to by his
master' 3 assailants.
A representative of Prince Ferdinand
called at the residence of M. Stambuloff to
day to express the sovereign's sympathy
and condolence, but Mnie. Stambuloff re
fused to receive him or hold any commu
nication with him.
None of the Ministers has called to in
quire as to M. Stambuloff's condition.
The Svoboda, M. Stambnloff's organ, of
which M. Petkoff is editor, bluntly accuses
Prince Ferdinand and the Government of
bringing about the crime. The condition
of the wounded man is now much worse.
SVAXISH FORCES ROUTED.
Cuban Insurgents Defeat the Government
SANTIAGO DE CUBA, July 17.— A

heavy. Among the killed was General
Santocildes, the Spanish commander.
Details of the engagement are suppressed

KEY WEST, Fla., July 17.— The revo
lution in the Santiago de Cuba district is
increasing every day. Within the last
three days more than a hundred men from
the common classes have left this city to
join the insurgents, and of the elite, a
number of the most distinguished men
have also gone.
Among the latter are the following: Dr.
Joaquin Castillo Duany, graduate of the
Pennsylvania University, and who served
in the American navy (he was th* phy
sician appointed in 188*1 to go on board the
Rodgers on the relief expedition sent out
by the United States to the north pole in
search of the Jeannette); Pedro Aguilera, a
civil engineer, who graduated at Troy, and
who was superintendent of the Spanish-
American Mining Company. His brother,
Eugenio Aguilera, is chief engineer of the
Jurugua Iron Company here. The two
last named are sons of Francisco Aguilera,
a rich Cuban gentleman who was Vice-
President of the Cuban republic during the
ten years' war, and who died in New York
during the latter part of that war. Dr.
Felipe Feranes, a rich and prominent
physician of this city, has also cone.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1895.
SISTER SUED SISTER
Mrs. Robinson of New
York After Her
GIVEN TO MRS. SCHMITT.
Precautions to Avoid Damages
in a Slander Case Caused
COMPLICATIONS THAT ENSUED.
Nearly Eighty Thousand Dollars'
Worth of Realty Which the
NEW YORK, N. V., July 17.-An order
was granted by Judge Stover in Supreme
Court chambers to-day allowing Mrs. Fan
nie S. Robinson of 342 West Fifty-ninth
street permission to serve the Bummons
upon her sister by publication in an action
which she had brought against her sister,
Mrs. Agnes M. Schmitt of GO9 Eddy street,
Mrs. Robinson is suing her sister to re
cover about $80,000. She claims she was
induced in 1890 to transfer to her sister
real estate valued at about $75,000, and
$5000 in cash, which she had on deposit in
banks in this city, under an agreement
that the property would be returned to her
on demand. At the time of the transfer of
the property Mrs. Robinson was being
sued by Mrs. Catherine Williams to recover
$10,000 damages for slander.
Mrs. Schmitt was then living in San
Francisco. As soon as she learned of her
sister's trouble she came on here and ad
vised her sister to convey to her all her
property and whatever money she had
in order to prevent Mrs. Williams from re
covering any part ol the judgment in the
event of her success in the action. This
proposition, Mrs. Robinson says, was made
in the office of her iawyers, in the presence
of a witness, and it was accepted by her
immediaiely. She then transferred all of
her property to her sister for the consid
eration of $1, with the understanding that
it would be returned to her at the termina
tion of the suit which was brought against
her by Mrs. Williams for slander.
The action was tried and resulted in a
verdict in favor of Mrs. Williams for 6
cents damages. When that suit was con
cluded Mrs. Robinson made a request to
her eister that she reconvey all the prop
erty back to her. This she reiueed to do,
hence the present suit.
Mrs. Robinson and her sister, Mrs.
Schmitt, are the daughters of William
Kain, who died in 1868, leaving a large
estate, including valuable property on
Greenwich and Franklin streets.
No appeal has been taken from the ver
dict of 6 cents damages in the slander suit.
The Mrs. Schmitt referred to in the fore
going telegram is the wife of J. L. Schmitt
of the firm of J. L. Schmitt & Co., stock
brokers, 6 Merchants' Exchange building.
Mrs. Schmitt herself was not to be seen
last night, but her husband stated that the
matter was very complicated. No denial
is made of the claim of a transfer to Mrs.
Schmitt nor that a reconveyance would be
made at the proper time.
It is explained that at the time of the
death of the father (William Kain) in 1868
the daughters were very youne, and that
they made a trust deed to their mother,
which was forgotten or not entirely under
stood by them. Upon the death of their
mother in 1890 the property was devised
by will to the children. Later on, when a
suit against the Manhattan Elevated Rail
road was instituted for damages to the
property involved, their attorneys discov
ered this trust deed, and have raised a
question as to the rightful ownership.
Mrs. Robinson's conveyance to her sister
was prior to this, and now Mrs. Schmitt,
upon advice of her attorney, wishes to
have the question settled by the courts be
lore any transfers are again made, claim
ing that any action now might tend to
greatly complicate matters.
RACES AT SARATOGA.
Canadians Won Most of the Events in
SARATOGA, N. V., July 17.— Perfect
weather, a well-nigh perfect course and
close contests in the several events made
the first, racing day of the National Asso-
ciation of Amateur Oarsmen a success.
One race in particular will be long remem
bered. It was the intermediate eight-oared
shell race, and for the last half mile the
prows of the two boats cut the water on
even terms. Then, with spectators cheer
ing, steamers ' whistles shrieking, cox
wains yelling and every man of the sixteen
pulling for all that was in him, tne stem of
tiie Wachusetts boat crept inch by inch to
the front and crossed the line two feet in
advance of that of the Melrose crew. The
men from Worcester, Mass., were bo de
lighted with their victory that they re
mained at the finish line a quarter of an
hour and alternately cheered the Phila
delphians, who had pushed them so hard,
and themselves before paddling to their
In the other events Canada carried off
nearly all of the honors. The day opened
with still water and a cloudy sky. About
noon the sun came out and a light brezee
sprung up from the south. It blew de
cidedly in line with the course and was
never strong enough to more than ruffle
the surface of the water. The course was
from the flag buoys at the north end of
the lake, opposite Thomas Lake house,
straight south three-quarters of a mile to
the nag buoys and return, finishing at the
starting line. All except the eight rowed
this course and the men had the wind on
their backs going and in their faces on the
stretch. The eight-oared race was started
down the lake and rowed one and a half
miles straightaway, finishing where the
others did. The course was well marked out
and only three small launches followed the
crews. In one lauuch were the umpire
and the members of the regatta com
There were barely 200 spectators present,
and they were lost in ample space fur
nished by the bluffs and lawns of the lake
house, from which the start and finish
were seen to excellent advantage.
The first event was started promptly at 8
o'clock. It was the first of the senior
singles. Ruhmore finished several lengths
ahead. In the second heat of the senior
singles, John L. Hackett defeated White
head, McKay and Cresser by three lengths.

A Missionary Says War Cannot Reform
BOSTON, Mass., JAly 17.— The American
Board of Foreign Missions has received the
following letter from Rev. William 8.
Ament of Peking on the effect of the war
betwoen Japan and China:
"As to China, people may talk of great
internal reform and a genyal renovation
of the Government, but there is no evi
dence of any change at present. Personally,
I expect no reforms, except under com
pulsion. Things will go on as they have
in the past, and the only hop* is from a
development from within. No sledge
hammer blows from without will break
the hold of this empire on the past; but
the little plant, truth, working from within,
will do this some day. There is a faithful
body of people who are working and pray
ing for this end.
"If there is any growth in China, I am
afraid it will be more in the line of mili
tary enlargement and a desire to get even
with Japan. The war has utterly failed to
arouse tne nation— in fact, the nation, as a
nation, knows nothing about the war, and
no lessons can be taught the officials be
fore the people are instructed. The growth
must be from the lower strata upward, aB
it has been in all lands. Hence, I look for
a patient continuance in the usuar lines of
work, being assured that our first duty ib
to sow the gospel broadcast and let the
truth do its work— perfect work. Our
great need now is a body of trained native
Christians who arc alive to the situation."

CHICAGO, 111., July 17.— A special to a
morning paper from New York says: Un
deterred by the matrimonial infelicities of
her mother, Miss Consuelo Vanderbilt,
daughter of Mrs. Alya Vanderbilt, who re
cently was divorced from her millionaire
husband, William K. Vanderbilt, is about
to become engaged to the young Duke of
Marlborough. Both the parties in this
contemplated union between blue blood
and hard cieh are young, very young, but
they move in the fashionable act of their
The present Duke of Marlborough is
mainly celebrated for his American step
mother, Lady Beresford, formerly Mrs.
Hammersley, formerly Miss Lily rrice of
Troy. Mrs. Hammersley is distinguished
for numerous reasons, among them that
she married the Duke's father in 1887 in
the City Hall, Mayor Hewitt officiating
and afterward honoring the blushing bride
by kissing her aristocratic lips. Then,t 00,O o,
she restored the ancestral halls of the
Marlboroughs by expending $500,000 of the
money left by her previous husband, Jfr.
In 1891 the Duke died, but the American.
Duchess wus not to be "dowggered" so
easily, aud last May she made her reap
pearance on the matrimonial stage, and
blossomed forth as Lady William Beres
ford, the wife of one of the Prince of Wales'
intimate friends and a former confirmed
bachelor. Then she left the Marlborough
an cestral halls, and the young Duke had
thr lv ull to himself.
Growing tired of the company of his an
cestors' portraits he Plunged into the sol
emn g»yety of London society, where he
met M ISS Vanderbilt Anybody could fall
in love with a girl worth two or three times
as much as the late Miss Anna Gould, so

Miss Vanderbilt is 17 year* old, and.
while not tranacendently beautiful, is yet
pleasing and has winning manners. She
made her social debut last winter at the
horse show aud attracted much attention
by the simplicity of her costumes and the
democracy of her ways. She is said to be
rather domestic in her tastes. Of late she
has contracted t/ie bicycle habit, but this
will no doubt be overlooked by the Duke,
in view of the fact that marriage with her
will enable him to make further repairs to
his ancestral halla.
Just how Mr. Vanderbilt looks upon the
rumored union is not known, but it is cer
tain that he is very fond of his children
and that he will not p«rmit his daughter
to contract an unsuitable match. Mrs.
Vanderbilt refuses to discuss the rumored
engagement, and Vanderbilt at all times
denies himself to reporters.

Dallas Sports Sincere in Their iLlabor-
NEW YORK, N. V., July 15.— 1t now
looks a* though the sportsmen of Dallas,
Tex., are sincere in their desire to make
the Corbett - Fitzsimmons battle a go.
Plans for the arena, which is to be built
for the occasßion, are already completed
and will be shown to-morrow. The draw
ing of the interior represents a huge am
phitheater, with accommodations for 52,
--862 people, distributed as folio W3: Unre-
Berved seats, 32,069 ; reserved seats, 17.688 ;
Beats in boxes, 1406 ; s<vits for press, 652.
The diagram represents an atan-j. claimed
to be larger than any mentioned in ancient
or modern history since the days of Titus.
A.D. 172. The reserved seats are all
marked out distinctly and numbered.
As early as last week tickets were in de
mand at Dallas, ao much bo in fact that a
book of orders for nfty box seats was
cleverly abstracted from Secretary W. K.
Wheelock's desk. The thief's enterprise
is doomed to disappointment, however, aa
the orders are worthless and the numbers
will be replaced.
