SCHOOL-HOUSE ON FIRE.
Almcrt a Horror Panic and Excitsnsnt
Over the Event Several Children Injured.
Yesterday momlnc an alarm of flrewa3 turnod
In about 0:15 o'clock rrom box SS, at the Fourth
precinct station. The cause or tho alarm was
the discovery or fire ia the Stevens school build
ing, on twenty-first stroot, betweea K and L.
The fire originated in a fursacs-Hue, between the
first and second floors, and was confined to tho
woodwork aVout a register on the second floor.
The flames were soon extinguished, af,cr the axo
bad exposed the burning timbers, at a loll not
exceeding .ao. The discovery or fire la tho
building, which contains fourteen schools, with a
dally attendance or over S00 pupils, camo near
resulting In a terrible and fatal disaster, such as
now and then occurs to shock the world. When
tbe dreaded cry of tire wa raised tbcro was
panic and confusion all over the building, and the
children, who had in following the natural In
stinct of self-preservation lost all idea or dls.
cipllne, rushed from the schoolrooms into the
hallways and madoror the stairway.
Screaming with fright, the little ones sought
flight in a stampede down the stairway, and In
rushing down the pressure carried away the bal
usters at the Imminent peril of many a young
life. By a happy miracle no one was very se
riously injured. One girl, Anna Davis, between
thirteen and fourteen years or age, was knocked
down when tbo stalr.ralllng gave way, and was
trampled under tho feet or her schoolmates.
She was removed as soon as posslblo to bcr home,
opposite the school building, and Dr. George S.
King called In, who round no other bodily In
juries except several bad bruises, although she
was suffering greatly from
Another little girl, Anna Queen, who Is subject
to spasms, was frightened into a fit, and was
carrfed home. Two small boys jumped from the
third story window to tho ground, and were
caught by spectators In the crowd below. One or
them is named Victor Mfmms, and their escape
from death was almost miraculous. Unite a
number of the children got udou the nortlco at a.
risk of breaking It down and causing a new hor
ror, but, fortunately, an employee or the gas
works, Mr. Cranln, procured a ladder and
brought dawn many or the children.
The sight was an unusual one. The greatest
consternation and excitement prevailed among
tbe children within, wko were making use or
every effort to get out, and a number or parents
and others without who were rushing in to save
the children. The teachers generally through
out the building conducted themselves with com.
mccdablc coolness and prudence, and even
heroism. They exerted themselves to the utmost
to subdue the excitement, and, when the balus
ters gave way, with prudence and courage sel
dom witnessed ranged themselves hand In hand
and formed a living railing to pass tbe children
down. Had this not been done undoubtedly the
results or the fire would bare been far more
serious. The policemen of tho precloct were
early upon the ground, and did good service In
passing the children out.
TnEOCioir, of the rtne.
Tbe fire was caused, as Is stated above, from a
defect in tbe arrangement of a flue. Ia the con
struction of the building wood-work had been
placed so as to abut upon the flue, and this had
become so charred, from continual contact with
the heated flue, as to be as Inflammableas tinder.
The cold weather of yesterday called Tor large
fires In tho lurnaces.ann the wood work about the
register In the north west corner or the second fioor
of the building caught fire an event that was
bound to occur sooner or later.
Tbe prompt arrival of the fire department pre-
veuieu mo uesiruciiou oi me uuuaing ana tne
consequent loss of life. As It was, a considerable
space or flooring was burned, and the attendant
panic is a sufficient warning to avert a terrible
calamity In this or some other building In tbe
Tho room where the fire originated Is occupied
by tbe Fourth primary school, and Miss M. Ij.
Bowie, tho teacher of this school, states that the
first indication ortho fire was the flames shooting
ui in the corner, about as high as the seats.
There was very little smoke perceptible at first.
The panic seized her school first, and she lost all
control or the children, who ran out screaming

eitlnguisted and the" panic was thoroughly

from the effects of her injuries and fright within

THE 3 65 BONDS.
A Scqusst to Congress for the Payment of
The following communication accompanied by
a bill making tbe necessary appropriation was
lorwarded to the House of Representatives
To the Speaker of the House of Repretentalieet:
Sin: 1 he Commissioners of the District respect
fully request that the attention of Congress may
be called to the necessity or legislative pro
vision for the payment oi the Interest on the
bonds authorized to be Issued by the act of Con
gress, approved June 20, 1S74, entitled "An act
lor the government of the District or Columbia,
and for other purposes." Tho-o bonds are gen
erally known as the "3.CJ bonds." The act above
cited pledges tho faith or the United states to
the payment (by tho proper proportional appro
priation and by taxation on tho property within
tbe District) or the interest on said bonds, as
well as to tbe creation or a sinking rund for the
payment of tbe principal thereof at maturity.
Upon the funded debt or the District or Colum
bia other than tbe 3.05 bonds, the Interest, In
eluding that due January 1,1876, has been paid.
By tbe act or February 20, 1875, the interest on
the 3.C5 bonds Is payable at tho United States
Treasury. After payment from the
treasury of tho District of the current
expenses of the government and the
interest en tbe funded debt or tho District
other than the 3.C5 bonds, the revenues will not
be sufficient to pay any part or the Interest on tho
3.5 bends, which rails due on February 1, 1S73.
The commissioners of the sinking rand nave,
however, en deposit at the United States Treas
ury, tlO.OOO applicable to the payment or this In.
terest. it results, therefore, that either Con
gressional appropriation for tbe residue must be
madecrthat there must be default In the ply.
mentel interest to which thelaltbor tho United
States Is pledged. The Commissioners are ad
vised by the board of and It that. In the opinion or
that board, provision should be made for the
February Interest on $H.3yo,S53.53 of the 3.65
bonds. The facts upon which this opinion is
bated are stated in a comtsanlcatlon from tho
board of audit hereto annexed. For the semi-annual
Interest on H,3,J9.833.55 or these bonds there
would be required an addition to the above-mentioned
$40,000 now on hand the further sum of
$222,797.E0. The Commissioners of the District
therefore recommend the appropriation by Con
gress or $222,707.50, or so marh thereof as may bo
necessary.ror the payment or the fnterest on such
tends due I ebruary 1 1S76. Respectfully,

Curious Scandal Case in the Folico Court.
In the Police Court yesscrday there was tried
a curious and somcwhatmlxed scandal ciee.whlch
not only non plussed tbe judge, but also the spec
tators In that aboJe or justice. Thomas J. Mc
Namee, a young man and a clerk In one of the
Derartments.was arraigned upon a charge sworn
to by the complainant with an lBde,; jsji-U
upon Mrs. Cor.-aSMisOneck, ths wife of an ex
Tbo catnpUIcant, who Is rather gooa looking,
was placed upon the stand and UstlSeJ that on
Friday last defendant called at her rooms, corner
of Eighth and D streets northwest, to engage her
husband, who Is a musician, to play at a serenade.
Her husband was absent at tbe time, and knowing
that ract defendant made improper proposils to
and took liberties with bcr by force, which sho
resisted and finally succeeded In repelling.
A rigid cross examination developed the fact
that she had been In the patients' department of
the St. Elizabeth asylum, under treatment for
hysterics, brought upon her by a spiritualist who
had lived In the same house with her, by means
of a table, on which she placed her bands, causing
her to faint and remain unconscious for several
hours. Altcrwards she bad hysterics regularly,
and her busband sent her to the asylum for treat
ment. Since leaving that place sho had been
stopping with her mother and sister until two
weks ago. when she went to board at tbe corner
cf l.ighth and It stieets with her busbmd.
Several witnesses Tor thfl dorense testified that
on tbe day named, about 4 o'clock in tho after
nccn, they saw Mrs. S. and McNamee standing
at the door ot the bouse, engaged la a pleasant
conversation, and when they separated he raised
bis hat and she responded with a smile. Other
witnesses testified to the good character or de
fendant. Still another witness, who resides at
the house, testified that he was at homa oa the
evening or tho occurrence, and did not hear any
OriSIOS OP THE COCET.
The court stated that this was a s:rIou3 charge.
cue which was easily made and difficult to prove.
There are many circumstances connected with
the case which raise some doubt or thetruthtul
ness or tbe tcsttmony or tbo prosecution. There
Is nothing Impeaching her testimony, yet the Uct
that she had been In the insane asylum, and bad
followed ber would-be rarlsher to the door and
there held pleasant conversation with him, and
other circumstances, surrounded the case with
embarrassments which It would perhaps be bet
ter lor a jury to consider, and he would send the
case to tie grand jury, fixing the bonis at Tl,OM.
Suit for Damages Against tbe B. end P. R. E
Verdict for Plaintiff.
The rase of Prulttrs tho Baltimore and Poto
mac railroad lor damages allegtd to have been
sustained by the plaintiff by being ejected from a
train was yesterday morning resumed In the Cir
cuit Court, Chier Justlco Cartter. This Is a ease
where the plaintiff purchased a twenty.Qre.trip
-ticket between Washington and Alexandria, and
upon cne trip when the conductor came around
the plaintiff held out his ticket to have one otthe
numbers punched out, but the conductor de
mscded that ho deliver tbe ticket into hlj (eon
ductor's) band or It would not bo punched. This
tbe plaintiff refused to d), giving as a reason that
upon several former occasions conductors of trains
had punched out ftro numbers instead or one.
Upon refusing to deliver tbe ticket into the con
ductor's hands, he was ejected from the train,
whereby, he alleges, he sustained damiges to tbe
amount of $i.OO0. The prayer er the plaintiff was
that If tto jury believed that he gave tbe con
ductor a fair opportunity to punch tbe ticket, be
should be entitled to a verdict, while upon the
ctber band the defendant's prayer was that plain-,
tiff should have siren tne conductor a fair oppor
tunity to examine the ticket, and IT It was neces
sary to such examination for tbe conductor to
hare the ticket In his band, it was the duty of tbe
plaintiff to hare delivered It to him.
The jury returned arerdlct ror plaintiff Tor 4100,
but the case will go to tbe general term on excep
tions noted by the defendants.

president; Warren Ohoate, secretary; George F.
Gullck, F. U Moore, A. S. Solomon", A. S. Pratt
and Wm. Ballantyne.
Mr. Stlckney said that his remarks at the pre
vions meeting had been partially misunderstood
by the reporters. He did not Intend to say that
nineteen twentieths of those heretofore aided
were Idlers and lmposters, though doubtless both
classes were represented, and always will be
wbero charity is to be dispensed. How to aid tho
poor and destitute without encouraging Idleness
and Improvidence Is a serious and very difficult
question. Perhaps the plan that he had proposed
lor adoption by tho commission was liable to as
few objections as any heretofore proposed.
Mr. Ballantyne, rrom the committee to suggest
a plan or operations, reported that tbecommltteo
had held no formal meeting, but It baring been
stated that valuable aid could be rendered by the
police force he called on Major Richards, who
cheerfully seconded the efforts of the almoners,
and agreed to oxtend all tbe assistance through

5. Instruct the grocer or coal dealer to deliver
the articles and take a receipt rrom tbe party re
llered upon the back or tbe order, which receipt
shall be acceptcd.es a voucher In the settlement
cr the account.
Mr. Solomons said that ho had communicated
with St. John's Guild, or New York city, whose
members were engaged In a similar work, and
they had transmitted a copy or the blank form,
asking certain questions,used by them on furnish
Ing relief. He thonght the commission should
hare a record for use in tbo f atnrc some statistics
showing tbe work accomplished, and be believed
these blanks would suit tbe purpose exactly.
Mr. Mcoro thought, as It hid been recommend,
ed to have tbe physicians or the city assist them,
he would suggest tbe addition or tbe Inspectors or
tbo Board cr Health. The city was divided Into
precincts, and tho object was to cover all tbe
ground and extend relief where mostly needed.
and he was satisfied that valuable aid could be
secured from this source.
On motion. It was decided to amend the report
by Including tbe blank form submitted by Mr.
Solomons wblcb will bo used by the visitors. The
report was then adopted. It was agreed to es

EILtlHG; BY EXPLOSIVE OILS.
Besponiibilitlci of Hannfaetaren - Guilty
Knowledge Unit Be Provsd Bsfora the
Parties Selling Can Bo Held in Daraag-sj.
Chief Justice Agnew delivered the opinion ot
the Supreme Court In the case or Elklns, Bly &
Co. vs. Elizabeth MoKean. Tho jury In tho
court below found for tbo plaintiff, Mrs. McKean,
whose husband had died from thceffects or burns
caused, as alleged, from the use or unsafe oil
made by defendants, Elklns, Bly & Co. An ap
peal was taken on various assignments of error.
Following Is a stnopsis or the opinion:
Elklns, Bly & Co. vs. Elizabeth McKean. This
was an action by tbe widow of James McKean
against Elklns, Bly & Co., manufacturers of re
fined jetroleum. McKean died of burns re
ceived, either from the explosion or a lamp car
ried in bis hand, or from a fall, breaking the
lamp and setting the oil on fire. The action was
founded on tbo allegation tbat tbo defendants
willfully made and sold tbe oil for lighting pur
poses knowing that it was highly inflammable,
explosive and unsaro. Tho Chief Justice after
reviewing the testimony, says: "Thus, upon the
whole evidence, the turning point or tbe case
namely, a sale or this oil ror Illuminating pur
poses, with a guilty knowlcdgo or Its unfit and
explosive character Is wanting In order to sup
port tbe submission ot the fact to the jury." This
must reverse tho judgment.
The Chief Justice refuses to sustain an assign
ment of error, tbe substance ot which Is tbat alter
the oil had passed from tbe defendant, in large
quantities, to Arbuckle & Co., and rrom them In
smaller quantities to Caskey. and from Caskey to
Steele and Hart, who told the lamptal to Mc
Kean, there can bo no recovery. Tho argument
In support of this point Is rounded upon tho al
lowed soccesslre Intervening liabilities ol the
persons through whoso hands tho oil had passed.
But this proposition is unsound as a legal defense.
The cumber or bands through which the oil had
passed might furnish a strong argument on the
question or Identity, and tho guilty knowledge of
Elklns, Bly & Co., as to this particular oil: but
could not constitute a legal bar to recovery, ir the
Identity of tho oil and the guilty knowledge were
made clear. Certainly one who knowingly makes
and puts on the market for domestic and other
use such a death-dealing fluid cannot clatm ex
emption from liability for his terrible wrons be
cause he has sent It through many hands. The
length of its passage may create a doubt or its
Identity, or that It was sent oa its mission or de
struction with a rail knowledge or Its dangerous
qualities, but tbe facts being established ho can
not eseapo the consequences or his crime against
society. A manuiacturerwho sells his product as
an Illuminating oil having tbe sale-tiro test or
110 ce&rees, when, in fact, ho knows that its firo
test will not exceed c5 degrees, and that this Is a
most explosive and unsafe oil Tor domestic use,
can plead nothing la defense or this willful, terri
ble wrong done to a confiding community. He
bears within him a heart regardlessol social duty,
evidencing malice (In Its legal sense) In a high
degree. But while the circuit through which tho
oil has traveled may bo Insufficient as a legal bar,
the proof which sustains tbe fact or a guilty
knowledge should be clear In proportion to tbo
great wrong thus charged against one who nay
be innocent. We havo already said tbat the evi
dence offered In support of the guilty knowledge
In this case was Insufficient to be submitted to tho
Jury. Judgment reversed and a new ttlal awarded.

that It would at all times bo subject to such regu

construction neder a statute expressly providing
that roads acccptleg such aid should be subject
to Legislative control in regard to tbelr charges
Tbe objection tbat the law Is not uniform fn Its
operation. It Is said. Is not sustained by showing
tbat tee railroads of tbe State are divided into
classes, according to their cross earnings. As to
the objection that it Is a regulation of Inter-State
commerce, It Is said tbat It is unnecessary to dis
cuss tbe question, as tho derendants disavow any
attempt to apply tbe provif Ions or tbe act to Inter
state transportation It Is, at least, lu part con
stitutional ; and that a law may stand and be In
