New Yoiik, July 18. The Western
Union Telegraph building caught Are
at 7 o'clock this morning. Tho battery-room
on tho sixth floor, tho operating-room
on the floor above, and tho
restaurant on the ninth floor were com
pletely destroyed and seven lives wero
miraculously saved.
A few minutes before 7 o'clock this
morning tho operators began to arrtvo
to go to work. About fifty men and
young women had reached tho operating-room.
A messenger boy named
Matthews first saw a puff of smoke
under a tablo In tho checking depart
went on tho floor bclotv tho operating
room. IIo hnd scarcely time to In
vestigate tho causo whon a wooden
table was In flames and tho flro Was
with Lioimnxn-MKii lurinrrr.
Ife rushed up stairs to notify tho now
nruvals that tho building was on fire.
They were compelled to go through tho
checking department to go down stairs.
A panic was tho fcsult of tho messen
ger's wnrntng, tho young women
screamed and tho men rushed pell mull
down stairs to escnpo tho pursuing
llau cs, which, In 1om than two minutes,
bad spread throughout thoentlrooheck
lng department, burning up wire, in
struments and tables as If they were so
much tinder.
Tho entire room, when tho panic
stricken crowd pissed through It, was
fll'ol with n denre stilling snake.
They fell over oach other In the wild
efforts to reach a place of safety. The
little messenger, with an operator
named SUIdinore, wero the only two
perse ns who retained presence of mln I
enough to take in
Tho boy rushed down stairs an I out
of the building and teat out an alarm,
while Skldmore got down a tlre-oxtln-gulthcr
and endeavored to quench the
flames. This he saw was Impossible,
and ho had to flee In a very few min
utes. Tho flames ate through from
floor to floor In short order.
Just about this time It flashed upon
tho minds of the frightened persons
who had escaped that there were seven
others on the restaurant floor who had
not been warned of their danger. All
cxll had by this time been out off, but
succeeded In reaching I he roof through
the trap door. Under the eaves of the
big building the flames were shootlnc,
and the edifice seemed to be crowned
with flie. When the great crowds of
people on the streets saw tne men awl
women rush out on the roof
went up, for It seemed Impossible that
they could escape the fire burning be
tween them ami the street. Sereamlna
women on the roof wrung their hands
and the men eried: "Per God's sake
do something to save us."
Tiie first engine had arrived before
the terrifying events transpiring oa the
roof were visible to the crowd gazing
upward from llroadway. Soon a vol
ume of water was pouring into the
burning building, and the sounds of
crackling and breaking limbeM was
added to the conf uiu of tke seeae.
In a few minutes there were fourteen
tnglne and book and-ladder companies

A Cable T.lne Contemplated,
Tho commlltco of Mount Pleasant
citizens recently appointed to con
fer with tho olllclals of the Wash
ington and Georgetown Hallroad Com
pany, met President Hurt yesterday
afternoon at hlsofllcc In Georgetown.
Mr. Judd opened tho discussion by
saying that tho commlltco had coma for
a fill ndly conversation with the com
pany on the subject of better railroad
facilities for Mount Pleasant.
"We want," said ho, "the abolition
of the three cent fare and more frequent
commun!collon with tho city. Why
can you not ruu every tocond or th'rl
car of tho Fourteenth street line clear
through to Mount Pleasant, and mark
the cars so that they will be known?"
Mr. Amies spoku of the legal aspect
of the situation. Tho permit held bv
tho company for the occupation of V
streut was given by engineers who hid
not the right to erant It. The Commis
sioners had refused it, and the compiuy
occupy the street ou the sufferance of
the clllrens who have as yet olftired no
rroiest against n. me people have
never complained, but we think that
the Mount Pleasant citizens Imve never
received a due share of the street car
accommodations afforded to the rest of
the city, although It may not be profit
able to the company to give better.
.Air. Hurt thought it would not be
profitable, the company now ran two
cars to Mount Pleasant and the average
travel was scarcely a third of their ca
pacity. Mr. Armes read a paper, signed by tke
committee, setting forth the grievances
of the cltlaen and their demands for
better accommodations. The preamble
stated that the com-any were illegally
occupying streets not granted la their
charter. Mr. Hurt objected to this,
saying that the cars were run Into Y
slreet by the order of the Commlesion
ers to do away with the Inconvenience
caused by standing cars and changing
horses on Fourteenth street.
Mr. Hurt then stated hi Ideas as to
what the company would do. Tbey
were awaiting favorable legislation on
the part of Congress, In order to make
improvements, and, until then, they
could do nothing for Mount Pleasaat.
No cars can be ruu through, nor will
any wore cars be placed on the road.
The citizens must await the laying of
a cable nad, which the eotnpaay kas in
conttinnUttofl, for through ears and
tke abolishment of the three-cent fare.

When Thomas J. Morgan was ap
pointed Indian Commissioner about n
year ago, some very serious charges
were made against him, and liU con
firmation was hung up for a long tlmo
in the Senate. Among these charges
wero the attacks made on his military
career by certain Itcpublican corre
spondent and papers, notably those of
General lloynton In the Cincinnati
Commtrrinl Oatttte. Mr. Morgan had
a hard fight before the Senate to get
confirmed, and n pcntleman promi
nently connected with tho effort that
was made to defeat his confirmation
this mornlnc talked Interestingly of
the courso pursued by tho Commission
ers at that time and slnco.
After detailing tho chargoi against
Morgan's military record, with which
the public Is familiar, the gentleman
"Instead of joining Issue with Gen

accusers, Morgan at onco set up the

In doing this, his case was won. He
wruld take the articles of the Doyle
O'ltellyi, the Ford, and other Catholic
editors, who In strong language were
appealing for fair play lyid Justice, and
he would point these out as evidences
of the Pope's Interference in American
school matters.
"Heturreeded In diverting attention

precisely ulmt ho Intended to do. One
would suppose that so Intelligent u

Catholics erected a larne school build

CouiuiUsloner of Indian Affairs that tne
Uovtrnnuut would in this as ia all simi
lar rases (following out a well settled
polU ) contribute eoinetniae toward tne
Mippott of tne children cared for In the
school. In view of Morgan's often ex
preastrd opposition to tketr school! they
felt it would be uteleas to ask hlut for a
connect, so tbey appealed to Congress,
snd lie House made provision for Ibis
school by very properly inserting an
item In tne Indian Appropriation bill
appropriating $12,500 for the care and
support of 100 Indian children, or $133
ptr capita. There are 458 children of
school age on lUU reservation, and tne
Cover anient In its school building can
accommodate only 90 of this number,
leaving over 4M to roaut over the
prairies witk tne coyotes. Senator Pierce
of Korlk Dakota had alto offered an
amendment appropriating for the Sisters
of Charily at Be IT Lake .5.000 for
tke support of 100 children, or 50 per

Father Stophan, the patriarchal-looking

called Uio Great Father of the Sioux,
was asked by n Cuitic reporter what
he thought of the action nt the Senate

rictlven cent's worth of benefit from

used for the Indian's sole benefit. We
give the Government our buildings and

devoted fathers and sisters give their
lives to this work and oharge the Gov
ernment nothing, and I cannot, there
fore, see why Congress should decline
to encourage the schools the Indians
petition for and will attend, and spend
or waste the money of the people on
schools the Indians do not want. My
biulntas Is not to criticise the law
makers, but
Yes. you can say no matter what Mr.
Moreen or his narrow-minded friends
may do no Catholic Indian school will
be closed. We shall appeal. If neces
sary, to the Catholics ot the country,
and our loyal children who never fall
to retpond to the call of country or
faith, will not allow this great work to
suffer. Too much Catholic mlelonary
blood has been shed In our efforts to
civilise this much wronged race to al
low nines like this to Interfere with our
work. No. this latest development
does not disturb me. There will al
ways be a Catholic home open for tbe

The meeting of tbe Maryland Itepnb
llcan State Central Committee at Ihlil
more yesterday resulted In a surprise to
everybody. The antl Admlnistrttton
men got control of the party machinery,
ami there Is not an Administration man
on the committee from this rlty, though
there are two city members. Two sets
of delegates contended for seals on the
committee. One was headed by I'.xt
maeter W. W. Johnson, who hernia the
Administration men, ami the other by
W, T. Henderson, who wanted to be
prtstmasler of Ilaltlmore city.
The chairman of the commlltee, Dan
iel K. Conklln, who wanted tke tariff
on tin plates kept down, recotnired the
Henderson men ami gnve them seats.
He also allowed the Henderson men on
the commltlee on credentials, which, of
course, made short work of Johnson's
claims. After thus sitting nn the ofttce
holdlng delegation ex-State Senator
Thomas S. Ilodson of Somerset was
made chairman In place of Conklln,
who refused to serve any longer. Hod
son wanted to be District Attorney for
tho State, but Harrison gave It to John
T. F.osor. Hodsnn Is one of tbe ablest
lcpubllcan8 on the Eastern Shore.
The result of yesterday's work means
the defeat of Congressman Mudd of the
Fiflh district, who championed John
eon's cause yesterday. Some Republi
cans say that It endangers Congressman
Louis McOomas re-election In the
Sixth. The result of this row will give
JIaryland five Democratic Congressmen
certain. If not six, as the factional feel
ing Is very bitter.

It. Kwlng, principal ot tho Illalrsvllle

Pittsburg yesterday. Talking of the
polltlctd situation ho said: "I was a

"The Prohibitionists will not nomi
nate a Gubernatorial ticket and, al
though they will not Indorse Paulson,
t Is tacitly understood that they are to
vote for him for Governor and stick to
ho local Prohibition ticket. At least.
hat Is the way all feel with whom I
have talked. When It comes to (jiny
Um on one side and a straightforward,
honest man like Paltlton on the other,
it does not take an honest voter long to
decide upon Paulson. Charles S. WdlT
has a larger following than a good
many people suppose and his action In
declaring for Paulson will have a great
deal of Inlluence."
John I. McMahon of Houtxdale,
Clearlield County, who Is In Pittsburg
on business, styg the miners are for
Pattlson to a man, Republicans as well
as Democrats, ami that Clearfield will
give the largest Democratic majority In
Its history.

Nkw York, July IS. The follow
ing spcclitl from Washington Is pub
lished In lody's HtrttM: No state
ment j it made of the poverty of the
Treasury lifts cnuml so profound a sen
sation in Washington its the JlemUVi
article this morning showing that the
public debt was to be Increased by n
forced loan of nearly fflO.000.000, nn
amount equal. If not exceeding the
proposed reduction In the sugir
Mhcdtie of the Tariff bill.
It was generally supposed tint the
provisions of the silver colnajeact were
to become operative thirty day afler Its
approval by the President. So greedy,
however, are the Inventors of the plan
to selsre the trust fund of fW.OOO.WW to
parry the anticipated attacks upon the
exhausted Treasury, that It has lieen
urged that the money was to be
Thero Is no doubt whatever the f miners
of the bill thought It would be, but a
Question has arisen which the Attorney
General will probably have to decide.
The (cventh section of the coinage
law says that Its provisions shall "take
iffect thirty days from and afler Us
ptteate." The sixth imcllon says ' Hi it
upon the passage of this act the lul
ancM standing with the Trciaiirer of
the L'nltid States to th rerxctlva
credits of national banks for iIcjmhIh
made to redeem the circulating note of
such banks ami all dcpovlis thereafter
received for like purpose shill be
covered Into tbe Treasury hi a miscel
laneous receipt."
1 he Illicit Is on the meaning of the
wntd "act." However. It Is only
qtifftlon of a few weeks when there
will be no hitch.
There Is, however, no earthlv doubt
Ihal w hen the money Is covered Into the
Treasury the nonfnterestbearlngdebt
of the United Slates will be Increased
marly f0O.OOO.OOO. The fund which
until now has been held
by the most exacting pravisons of
law is toiieaiwiititetl.the money appro
priated to Government use ami tbe
faith or crtdft or the Government sub
stituted therefor.
It Is now rtcalled that on Monday
last, when the bill was presented to the
President, he Immediately approved it.
This was an almost unprecedented act.
He did not even wall for the ordinary
formality of asking the Secretary of the
Treasury If th bill was all right or ir
it did not need examination. No ex
planatlon bat ever been given for this
haste. 31 r. Windom. who bail ImhIbmi
at tbe White House Monday afternoon,
learned from tbe President for the nrst
time w hat bad already been done. Tne
reason for this
la now explained. It was expected It
wculd make immediately available "Ike
balance standing with tne Treasurer of
tbe United Slates to tke respective
credit of national banks for dettatiu
made to redeem Ike circulating notes
of suck banks."
No act of Coo Brest in many years
has more plainly declared that a dire
necessity exist In tke Treasury calling
loudly for Immediate relief, ami tkla
prollonis now spoken of as a great
prospective kelp to tke Administration.
An apologist says tbe theory of Con
gieas in lurnlne that fund into the avail
able money in the Treasury was to get
it into circulation, auii utile it U to ue
expended for Mitue purpose the object
oi tee law would be defeated. Hence,
if it is used to meet appropriation hUta
for public improvements, suck as river
and harbors, foMincatioee and laereaae
of tke Navy, it will be merely carrying
ont tke purpose of a law.
