The conflagration lasted less than an hour.
burning two large wharf boats and two
steamers and causing a loss of over 1100,-
000. The fire swept everything n its reach.
The whole department was out, but It
could only prevent Its spreading to other
craft In the harbor. All the loss falls on
the Cincinnati & Louisville Mall Line Com
pany, of which Commodore F. A. Laidley
is general manager.
The large wharf boat known as the Cin
cinnati wharf boat, in which the fire orig
inated by boys striking a match near
baled hay. was used for local boats, and
the one known as the Louisville wharf boat
for the through mail line. At one the 13tsr
sandy was loading ror Louisville, and at
the other the uarroiiton was loading lor
its trip to Madison, Incl. it was the day
ior cleaning boilers. Tne steamers were
chained to the larg ) wharf boats, and had
no steam up, so ir.ey could not pull out
from the fire, but If they had been able to
pull out other crafts in the harbor might
have been In danger. As the fire occurred
three or four hours before their regular
aauy starting time, there were only a few
Eassengers on board and they were easily
inded. There was a multitude about the
river banks on both sides and all the
bridges were full. Intense excitement ex
isted because of reckless reports about the
loss of life. Some still maintain that an
unknown man was drowned, but the river
men say all are accounted for. Fireman
Edward Bennet was so overcome with heat
that he became unconscious, but is all
tight to-night at the hospital. Superin
tendent Shaw, of the Cincinnati wharf
boat, was badly burned: also Clerk Jack
Cromley. fireman. William Klbby. Benjamin
Franklin and George Pchmitt. No one was
seriously hurt, however. The flames licked
Sausage Row for some minutes so as to
scare the colored occupants badly, but none
was hurt. At one time the Spencer House
was in danger and all thoso adjoining the
public landing began moving. As the fire
men worked from boats on one side of the
fire as well as from the landing, the sight
was an unusually brilliant one. Somers's
valuable horses en route to the Louisville
races, were rescued from the burninsr
steamer. A horse attached to a cray could
not be driven rrom the burning wharf boat
and plunged into the river and , was
drowned. The safe In the Cincinnati wharf
boat was left open, and $700 In currency.

Commodore Laidley to-night says the
losses of his company are as follows: The
Big Sandy steamer, S45.O00: insurance, 140.000.
The Carroliton steamer. $33,000: insurance.

loss of the mall line. $103,000; insurance,

steamers as well as the wharf boats are
total losses. There is no estimate on the
cargoes or the damage to the H. K. Bed
ford, the latter steamer having a narrow
escape from destruction. The insurance is
mostly in foreign and Eastern companies.
BAD ASSETS SWEPT AWAY.
One Million Dollars Added to a Bank's
CHICAGO. Aug. 3. The First National
Bank has charged off from its surplus $1,
000.0CO, transferring that sum to the profit
and loss account. Never before have such
heroic measures been taken by a Chicago
bank. In charging off this large sum from
Its surplus the directors have completely
wiped out the real estate which the bank
has taken at one time or another and
which is said to represent a value of some
lioo.ono. The bank charged liberally from its
undivided profits at the beginning of last
year. Tbe bank's statement to the Con
troller. Dec. 19, 1S32, showed divided pfits
of S6S3.94o. January it charged off Fome
thinz like $CXMX) for its undivided profits.
There is nothing to say about the mat
ter," said President Gage, "further than
the bank has made losses and accumulated
doubtful assets which it has now been
deemed wise to charge off in this sweeping
way. We might have worrfed along and
brought out ail of those assets so no loss
would have been shown. If we are still able
to do that It will simply go Into profits as
we reillia on thta."
EVIDENCE OF VOIDER
TRAIL OF HOIaS BLOOD FOUND IN
HOLMES'S CHICAGO CASTLE.
Discovery Thai Makes It Almost Cer
tain Sirs. Conner and Her Dnnsh
ter Were Killed In the llalldinff.
OTHER PROOF DISCOVERED
BLOOD-STAIXED CLOTHES AND A
ROPE FOCXD BY THE OFFICERS.
Two Trunks Claimed by Tat Quinlan
Xonr Known to Have Belonged to
the Missing Slinnie Williams.
CHICAGO, Aug. 5. Human blood was
found to-day In Holmes's castle bespattered
from one room to another. Science aided
detectives Fitzpatrlck and Norton where
other agencies had failed and uncovered
more ,tartlIng evidence against
Holmes and Pat Quinlan than has been
found in the castle.
There was found In the castle by the
detectives and a medical expert a trail of
blood leading from the doorway of the din
ing room of Mrs. Julia L. Conner to the
sink In the same room; from there Into the
dark chamber where she and Pearl former
ly slept, and from there to the Inside of
the door opening into the bath room, where
the secret trap door was on the baseboard
of that room above the trap door, and
down on to the secret staircase, which
led to the false elevator shaft, and thence
Into the basement. The blood was human.
A clot of blood mixed with human hair was
found. Also from the debris In tho dark
chamber, where mother and child slept,
there was taken some child's underwear
stained with blood; a pair of brown diago
nal trousers, stained at the bottom with
blood; the pocket of a woman's dress,
blood-soaked; a handkerchief which had
been used to wipe tip blood with and vari
ous, clothes and parts of underclothing
spotted with blood. These articles were
examined microscopically at the time of
tneIr discovery and the test made then
and there a9 tQ tne gUin9 and blotchea
being human blood. With but one or two
exceptions the expert decided they were
all marked with human blood. A rope was
found In the dark chamber and in its knots
blood was discovered.
In Pat Quinlan's private living rooms were
found two trunks of the theatrical type..
One was purchased from Meeks In Denver,
On both trunks were the initials "M. Ii
W." The Initials had been painted over.
The initials are those of Minnie R. Wil
liams. Pat Quinlan stated, after his being
taken into custody, that both of the
trunks belonged to him. Detectives Nor
ton and Fitzpatrlck have now the truth
that both trunks belonged to Minnie Wil
liams. Quinlan will bo confronted with
this evidence. lie will also be
faced with books found in his possession
and which belonged to Mlnnio Williams
There are Lippincott Magazines bearing
date ..s late as April, 1S31, demonstrating
thalv Minnie .i.Marns was alive at that
time. The fact that one of her trunks
waa bought In Denver is explained by the
Information already secured by Chief
Badenoch. that after ehe entered the tm
ploy of Holmes and finally left Chicago
she entered the theatrical business In Den
Chief Badenoch has 'also secured, in ad
ditlon to the above evidence, which his
detectives brought to him to-night, posi
tive proof that Benjamin F. Pietzel was
at Dwight as a patient when Emily Ci-
grand was there as a (stenographer. He
went under the name of Robert E. Phelps.
Under that name he met Emily Cigrand
and wooed her. Th girl' did not leave
Dwight of her own free will, but was dis
charged for Inability to properly perform
her duties. As soon as she left Dwight
she came to Chicago and entered the em
ploy of Holmes. There she again met Piet
zel under the name of Phelps. Chief
Badenoch believes all this evidence, to be
the most important of any, save the par
tial confessions of Mr. and Mrs. Quinlan,
that he has. yet secured.
The inference drawn by the 6 Ulcers from
the trail of blood which was discovered
wad tnat tne blood, being Human, came
from some person who was killed In the
dark chamber, taken from there to the
trap door, thence down the secret stair
way to the basement. Chemical analysis
of all the blood will follow. The bloody
doors were taken off, and the baseboards;
also portions of the flooring of the dark
chamber and on the secret staircase.
TRACING EMBLINE CIGRAND.
Her Father Receives Mysterious Let
ter from Philadelphia.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
ANDERSON, Ind., Ang. 5. Peter Cigrand.
the father of Emellne . Cigrand, whom
Holmes is supposed to have murdered In
Chicago, received a letter to-day from
Philadelphia, containing a photograph xt
his two daughters, Emellne and her sister
Phlllis, now here, and inquiring as to the
date when the picture was taken and the
place. The letter was signed by O. La For
rest Perry. The picture inclosed was one
of the sisters that was taken while at La
fayette. Di. Cigrand, of Chicago, has a
similar one in his possession. The letter
was written on a letterhead of the Fidelity
Mutual Life Insurance Association, at 914
Walnut street, Philadelphia, Pa.
The Cigrands were surprised to
receive this letter and could not
account for its being in the possession of
the Philadelphlan. A telegram was re
ceived from the Insurance company later
in the day stating that the name of Eme-
l'.e Cigrand did not appear on its books,
'he father of the missing girl thinks that
Emellne used the money that she had on
deposit in Lafayette in taking out a policy
at the instigation of Holmes and that the
latter murdered Emellne In order to get
possession of It.

FORT WORTH, Tex.. Aug. 3. Attorney
William Capps, who represents the Minnie
Williams heirs, arrived last night. . He
leaves to-morrow for Chicago, ha ring ccme
here to look up some clews, lie is con
vinced thoroughly that both Minnie and
Nannie Williams are dead and that Min
nie's death occurred first and nt a date
prior to the time fixed by Holmes as
that of the murder of Nannie Sy Minnie;
that since about June 30, 1803, cne has
seen Minnie Williams, though Holmes has
had some one Impersonate her In one In
stance when he wanted to collect lie in
surance after hl3 E-'glewood fire; that Mrs.
Quinlan signed Minnie Williams's name a.
secretary of . the Campbell-Yeat?s Com
pany, the ostensible owners of the build
ing; that the convict Caldwell, alias Allen,
In the Little Rock penitentiary, U un
doubtedly conversant with much of
Holmes's swindling career and is the A
E. Bond to whom the alleged transfer of
Hianle Williams's Fort Worth property was
made; that Caldwell was -undoubtedly here,
and an attorney remembers paying him
some money by check. He is convinced the
true title to the property nere is in tne
Villiam3 sisters' heirs. One thing of im
portance is the additional evidence that
has been gained tending to the implication
of a business man of some prominence In
Chicago in the Holmes crimes. Mr. Capps
says he is familiar with both the Holmes
house in Chicago ani on vortn, ana
there Is no resemblance between the two
except externally. He believes that the
footprint in Holmes's Fmomenng, vauu is
that of Minnie Williams, and if there is
any one thing that he fully believes it is
that Holmes is the arch fiend of the, age,
and has been guilty of all of the crimes
attributed to him. ana even more. tie
thinks the much-talkei-of stove in that
upper roorr. of Holmes's 'castle" was used
for burning bodies or parts of them.

methods employed by the Greenhut-Morris
interests to prevent the sale of Whisky
Trust assets to the reorganization commit
tee, Aug. 14. When the case comes up for

and who were former stockholders in the
trust, to Joining them in trying to block
the forthcoming sale. Two affidavits con
taining charges of conspiracy are sworn
to by Thomas Lynch, jr., of Chicago, the
former owner of the Shufeldt distillery.
Mr. Lynch makes the direct charge that
Nelson Morris opproached him repeatedly
during the last few days with a view of se
curing his co-operation In litigation against
the reorganization committee. These affi

be used by counsel for the committee In

That May Result in Great Thine.
PHILADELPHIA. Aug. t 3. The suc
cessful use of electricity as a
motive power on steam roads has led the
Baldwin locomotive works and the Westing
house Electric Manufacturing Company to
effect a combination. Conferences have been
going on between the two companies for
the past two or three months which have
resulted in an agreement by which they
will hereafter work together In the devel
opment of apparatus for the yOperation.of
Btcam railroads by electricity. It is ex
pected that the union of these two com
panies will result in the early Introduction
of improved .forms of electric motors for
The name of the new company has not
been determined, and the officials of the
Baldwin company decline to state whether
or not It; will be made a stock company.
Though by the agreement the two com
panies will hereafter work as one, yet
both plants will be retained as they are
at present, extensions being made as the
business warrant?. There will be a division
of the work, the Baldwin company tak
ing up such as is suitable to their facil
ities. The electrical work will be done by
the Westinghause.:c6ai35a-iii'..A . member of
the big locomotive firm. In speaking of the
consolidation yesterday, said: "We have
been seriously discussing the matter ever
since the latter part or April, ami, in view
of the improvements which we Jointly con
sidered the electrical developments of rail
ways to have been, we thought it to our
advantage to commne our interests, ana
in furtherance of that policy have con-
cluled contracts which make a practical
partnership, and we are now prepared to
construct electric railways, locomotives ana
everything that pertains to electrical op
erations of railroads. We have contracted
with an eminent engineer, David U Barnes,
of Hhieaeo. and expect to push business
for all there is in it. We hope to give
work to more men than we now employ.
as we anticipate a greater volume of work
than ever before." The Baldwin locomo
tive works cover fourteen acres of
ground, and the capacity on full-worked
time is one locomotive in eacn cigni nours.

private secretary to George Westlnghouse,
jr., in explaining to-night the scope of the
affiliation of interests of the Westlnghouse
Electric Company and the Baldwin Loco
motive Company, said: "The combination
is to develop the possibilities of the Tesla
motor as applied to the railway service.
We Intend to make it possible to ride from
New York to Pittsburg in three hours. With
the Tesla motor we are assured power to
draw a car at fhe rate of 150 miles an hour
or more. The only thing now is to get t?ars
and car" wheels that will stand the strain
of traveling at that speed. The Baldwin
people assure us that this can be done.
We now have the system working at our
plant at East Pittsburg, the only trouble
being to get a car that will remain on the
track. We believe that with this union
of Interests we will be able to
perfect the electric railway system, and I
can assure you .that by the year 1900 or
possibly sooner the line will be in opera

The present railway tracks cannot be

Captain Eakins when he sa'd the trial was
a crime. He said: "I am sorry for what
I said at the trial of Captain Eakins. I
spoke from the heart Just what I thought

by the dramatic situation and I knw It

BUFFALO. X. Y., Aug. 3. Samuel L.
Gracey, of this city, late United States
consul at Foo-Chow, China, was inter
viewed to-day on the reported massacre
at Ku-Chong. He said: "Ku-Chong. the
place mentioned in the pres3 dispatches as
the scene of the latest antl-foregln riots
in China, Is In the Fuchln province, about
ninety miles above Foo-Chow. It is fully
a hundred miles from Tagoda anchorage,'
the highest point of navigation for rteam
ers In the Mln river, hence is entirely be
yond the protection of American or other
foreign gunboats. The literati have been
stirring- up trouble against the foreign
residents there for many months and the
danger to life and property became eo
griat that al;out two months ago all Amer
ican residents were recalled to Foo-Chow.
These were the Rev. and Mr. W. C. Wil
cox and three children. Miss Mabel Chat-
ford and Miss Rouse, the two latter n pre
senting the Woman's Foreign Missionary
Society, and all of the Meiho'ist Church.
The other foreigners there were three or
four members of the" English Church mis-
sicn. who may not have been recalled during
the recent troubles. It is probable that
matters may have quieted down thare aft-
er the foreigners came away and some may
have been encouraged to return.
"The common people do not distinguish
between Japanese, American, English and
German nationalities, but all are alike
foreign devils and obnoxious. We cannot
but fear that outrages as have just re
cently transpired at Cheng-Tu, in the
northwest Interior, will occur in other lo
calities where foreign missionaries arc re
siding far away from the treaty ports
a hence beyond .he protection of foreign
gunboats. The people are extremely Ig
norant and superstltutlous and easily Im
posed upon. The fact that the recent
outrages In the Szchenan provinces were
connived at by the highest authorities in
the district at the time (since removed)
gives cause for much anxiety concerning
all foreign missionaries living in the In

recent massacre by an article printed In
the North China Herald of July 5 regarding
the previous riots, a copy or wnicn Mr.
