building at the corner of Wlllett and litv
Ingttm streets. Leo Gertig, an Alsatian,
rented the concern and ran a saloon on
the corner, lie lived on the next floor
wilh his wite and child, a boy of nluo
years, and let out the spare rooms on the
second and third floors to lodgers. When
the firemen arrived the ladders were put
up oo adjoining building with a view to
rescuing any of the Inmates who reached
the rook, and it was with ' the utmost
difficulty and danger that even this could
be done, owing to tho rapid spread of the
When tbe firemen gained the roof a
horrible spectacle met their gaze. Mrs.
Gerug and bar sou, both terribly burned,
were found lying near the scuttle through
which they bad escaped. A few mo
ments moie and tie flames, which were
already bursting through tbe roof
would have ended their existence.
The unfortunate woman was terribly
burned and unconscious. The boy was
almost as badly off. They were removed
to BeJIevue Hospital, where Mrs. Gertig
died wittruut regaining consciousness.
Tbe flesh wu literally burned off of por
tions of her body. The boy Is terribly
burned, and the doctors think It will be
a miracle If he recovers.
Ia the meantime the firemen reached
several lodgers who were In peril. When
the fire was got under control, an Investi
gation was made, and it was discovered
that a most determined and flendlsh case
of arson and murder had been planned
and carried out by some miscreant. Iu
the closet behind tbe bar In tbe saloon
was a pile of shavings and excelsior, used
in stuffing furniture. It was saturated
with kerosene. The fire was evidently
started in the rear of the sitting-room on
the second floor, and the doors loading
both up and down stairs left open, for
the firemen met a dense wall of tire when
they tried to get upstairs. In the bed
room off the Blttlng-room were two beds.
There was not a vestigo of
bedding left In them, showing
that kerosene had -been used there
also. The rear room off this, leading to
tbe hall had another supply of sticks plen
tifully covered with keroene. Ho trace
of Gertig, the proprietor could be found.

An Accomplished Thief Brought to Bay
Bbooklyx, N. Y., September 20.
Superintendent Campbell of this city re
ceived a dispatch this morning from the
Chief of Police of Philadelphia, stating
that George Reardon bad been arrested
In that city and would be held until he
eould send an officer for him. Keardon,
who has the reputation of being an ac
complished thief, is accused of being con
cerned with James Welsh and Mike Mc
Fadden In the assault and robbery of
cashier Johnson, of Boynton 4 Co.'s file
On the afternoon of January 20, 1SS3,
Johnson went to the First National Bank
of WJlliamsburg and drew money to pay
the hands in the factory. While on his way
back he was assaulted by Reardou,
Walsh and McFadden, who robbed him
of 91,020, and made their escape, notwith
standing the fact that it was two o'clock
la the afternoon, and the assault was
witnessed by several persons.
Walsh was arrested at Fall River,
Mass., and McFadden was arrested short
ly after la Williamsburg. He made his
escape, but was shot and wounded at the
time, and was recaptured a week later in
a barn in the outskirts of Williamsburg.
About six months after Walsh and Mc
Fadden were balled out Reardon will
be brought to Brooklyn, and it is prob
able that all three will be placed on trial.

Determined Effort on the Part of the Man

and Progressive Unions.
Determined Stand Taken by the Workmen
Not to Submit to Further
Cutting of Prices.
Cincinnati, 0., September 20. The
prospects for another lockout of tbe
clgarmakers of this city are the cause foi
much alarm among the members of both
the International and Progressive Unions.
During the pat few days rumors have
been rife that a reduction was Imminent,
and on Thursday the matter took the
shape of a formal notification that a re
duction of $1 per thousand on band and
mould would be demanded by the Manu
facturers' Union and of seventy-flve
cents per thousand for rolling and
bunch-breaking jobs. When this was
made known a joint committee of
the Progressive Union and of tbe Interna
tlonal Unlou No. 14, met and adopted a
report not to work below the prices
agreed upon May 28, 1883. Yesterday the
report of tha action of the Manufactar
.ers' Union was received by the dgar
makers, aud a special meeting of the In
ternaUon Union was called. About 500
members were present lart night. It was
decided unanimously that the proposed
reduction would not be accepted. It was
also agreed that rather than submit to
tbe proposed reduction the members
would go into a lock-out. A meeting of
tbe committee from the Progressive and
International Uuions will be held this
evening to confer further about the ques
tion. Should a lockout occur It will be a
serious affair, there being 1,165 members
of tho International in tbe city, and over
200of the Progressives. Iu the Manu
facturers' Union there are twelve firms;
but it is thought that all the other firms
in the city will join In the proposed re
ductiou. The manufacturers have given
the cigars-makers until October 6, to re
turn au answer, but tbe meeting last
night authorized the committee to return
a positive answer of ."no" to-day.

St. Louis, Mo., September 20. This
Is the beginning of the Hebrew New Year
and the annual religious ceremonies will
be celebrated to-ilay and to-tnorrow. The
feast Is called Hashhashno. Next Mon
day will follow the Yom-klppuror day of

Hamdrash Hayado was assembled at six
o'clock this morning at 921) North
Seventh street in the hall back of
Joseph Levy's store, whllo the rival
congregation of tbe Cheora Kadusba
synagogue met across the way
at 921. The closing of the pawnbroker
shops and clothing stores la the neigh
borhood accounts for the large number
of celebrants, lt ibbl Israel presided at
No. 920, the orthodox congregation, and
Itabbis Max Litbensteln and K. Fergen
sen conducted the ceremonies at No.
924, which lasted until 1 p. m , and will
be renewed from 6 to 9 p. m. There is
but sllsht difference in the performances
at the two places. At the Beth Hamdrash
men are musk-red into tho sanctuary,
habited like veiled prophets in striped
cloaks, while the women and children
are kept outside a curtained railing.
The Uaobl chants from the Scriptures
in Hebrew, accompanied by two assist
ants with bas voices. The psalms
praise the Creator for bavins preserved
his children daring the past year from
sin, and ask favors for the coming year.
The Jewish New Year Is a soiemu occa
sion, celebrated only by religious gather
ings. There will be ceremonies also
at the Temple at Seventeenth and Pine
