SeTen Blocks in Amusement Zone of Coney Island Burned Over by an Early Morn ing Conflagration. AN EXODUS OF FREAKS Armless and Legless Man Car ried Out in a Basket. The.Fire Eater Got More Than He Could Stand. The loss Is Estimated at a .Million Dollars. Xew York, July 29. Coney Island was visited by a disastrous fire early Sunday and seven blocks In the Amusement zone were destroyed. The loss is estimated by the show men at more than $1,000,000. Tilyou's steeplechase park and near ly a score of small hotels were wiped out, and for a time the flames threat ened destruction to Luna park and Dreamland, great homes of summer amusement, and the scores of smaller places which fring the water's edge for a mile. A lucky shift of the wind to Eeaward aided the firemen and probably saved the whole picturesque area. The destruction of steeplechase park was a spectacular sight. Tongues of flame leaped hither and thither, licking up the scenic railway, the razzle dazzle, the dancing pavil ion and the horse racing railway. The steeplechase and hotel anti nearly a score of smaller wooden hotels which fronted along the western side of the park soon were blazing. Fire Commissioner Lantry seeing tnat nothing could be saved In the park ordered that all efforts be con centrated on the east side of the flam- Lng blocks, to keep the fire from eet- fing into the fiimsv buildings in the bowery and thus making a fire trail to Dreamland and Luna park. The firemen were massed at the entrance of the bowery and although a Japan ese skating rink, a small dance hall and a restaurant were destroyed there the fire was checked. The wind had In the meantime switched Into the south and this favorable slant of breeze aided the fire fighters In con fining the fire to seven blocks. The alarm of fire woke up dozing Coney Island with a start and in a few minutes Surf avenue was jammed with excited freaks and frolickers. chorus girls, snake charmers, animal trainers, performers, amusement em ployes all the miscellaneous popu lation of the island in fact. Carried Ont In a Basket. Inside the burning park all was ex citement and confusion among the two score employes who slept in a house near the entrance. Carrying grips and lug gage they scurried to the street and while the exodus was in progress a cry went up that Sandora, the armless and legless man who eats a dozen meals a day Just to show that he can do it without the aid of arms and legs, was missing. Seizing a basket, two employes hurried back and found Sandora wig gling along the floor toward the door. The "wonder" was piled into a basket, and though flames threatened to engulf his rescuers he was carried" to a hotel, where he remarked that his escape had been effected "without the loss of life cr limb." The hotels burned like tinder, and a few minutes sufficed to wipe them out clean. One of the first to escape from his lodging place was Francesco, the fire eater. When things are calm and placid, Francesco eats fire and breathes It forth again, all for a livelihood. Some times he is advertised to bathe in tongues of flames. But the conflagration was too much even for Francesco, and he wisely gave way to the firemen. The fire put small dance halls and bathing pavilions out of business and many sandwich men and frankfurter purveyors who stored their stands and carts In nooks and crannies between buildings lost everything Arthur Lee, manager of Steeplechase park, speaking for Mr. Tilyou, said that the loss on the park which was complete ly destroyed would reach $1,000,000 and there was no insurance. The destroyed hotels were small and the property loss will not reach much over $100,000. The police report three Injured by the fire: Gottgrled Mc-sserli. a fireman, struck by a falling cornice; Sylvester JMeed, slightly burned and Frark franklin, also burned. The Coney Is land postofflce was damaged. Estimates of the total loss made by the show people are somewhat in ex cess of the figures set by the police and fire departments. The fire chief who di rected the fight said later that over $200, 000 would be a conservative estimate of the damage. CIGARETTE STARTED IT. TDyou Sold Tickets to Visitors to See the Rains. New York, July 29. George C. Tilyou, chief owner of Steeplechase park. Coney Inland, which was burned early Sun day, has for years been one of the picturesque figures of Coney Island. He has lived near the ocean's roar practi cally all his life and was one of Coney Island's pioneers in the amusement line. Teais ago when only a small part of the beach was utilized as a pleasure resort Tilyou bought much of the adjoining land and these holdings In times of stress have put him on his feet again. Sunday's fire was only one of several hard blows that have come to Tilyou. Some years ago, when John T. McKane was "czar of Coney Island." Tilyou gained his enmity by opposing certain of McKane's projects. So strong was McKane's Influence that Tilyou's enterprises began to fail and he has himself stated that his affairs were In eerious shape when McKane's downfall came, because of his utter contempt of election and other laws. It is said Til you was at the Grand Central station to see McKane the day the latter start ed under guard for Sing Sing prison. Tilyou has announced that he will not rebuild ' at Steeplechase park, but friends who know the man say he will change his mind when the force of the blow he has Just received wears away, it was characteristic of Tilyou Sunday to take what profit he could from the sad situation by selling tickets at 10 cents apiece to persons who wanted to enter his ground and see how little he had left. He also put up a cheerful sign thanking people for past favors and sympathy. An idea of the size of Sunday's fire may be gained when it is said the area turned aggregated about 30 acres. From 200 to 300 firms or individuals were put out of business by the fire, which caused a financial loss of about $1,000, 000. The insurance aggregate? only $180,000. A cigarette stub landing in some waste paper caused all the trouble. OFFER TO ARBITRATE. It Comes I'rom the Striking Employes of the Steel Trust. Duluth, Minn., July 29. Before night the strike of the dock workers in Duluth will be at an end if the steel corpora tion accepts the offer of the men to arbi trate, which, however, is doubtful. At a meeting held tod&y the men vot ed to present a written agreement to the company by which they offer to go back to work at once and leave all differences to arbitration, the arbitration commls tee to consist of two men from the com pany, two from the men, and one to be chesen by the four. The offer was to be submitted to the company by Mayor Cullom who has been acting as mediator this afternoon. It is doubtful whether the company will accept the offer, claiming there is nothing to arbitrate. It claims men have violated the agreement and if tlv?y want to come back on the old terms, they may.

Six Story Tenement Building Wrecked by an Explosion. New York. July 29. An explosion ac companied by fire shattered an east plde tenement late last night and with the crumbling walls 20 persons went down to death while twice as many were pro bably fatally injured. The wrecked building was at 222 Chri3tie street where a six story tene ment rose above the grocery store base ment. . , . An explosion yet unaccounted for tore out the front of the building and the fire that followed caught the 20 fami lies numbering about 100 persons, while most of them were sound asleep. Not until the ashes have cooled will it be possible to tecover the bodies of the dead. Of the injured many jumped from the windows, others were caught by falling timbers, many half suffoca ted by smoke were dragged from the hallways, while others received their wounds -luring the panic and mad fight among themselves for an exit. The bodies of the dead were found in all sorts of unexpected places to which they had fled when the fire broke out. Almost all of the bodies were burned beyond recognition, many to such an extent that it was Impossible to distinguish the sex. A majority of the victims, the police be lieve, were women and children. Only five of the victims had been identified up to an early hour today. They were Marlite De Delic. his wife and their two infant children and Frank Shields, a bedridden cripple who was carried out alive by the fire men, but who succumbed to his in juries soon after his rescue. It is thought the fire was caused by an explosion, possibly due to the "blackhand" outrage. Weather Indications. Chicago, July 29. Forecast for Kan sas: Fair tonight and Tuesday; slight temperature changes.- MAY ( IK All THEIR SKIRTS. Insurance Cases " Msy Be Dropped Against Several Companies. It is stated by the attorneys for the state that the injunction suit com menced against the "insurance trust" may be dropped as to certain com panies as these 'companies have suc ceeded in making a. showing which convinces the attorney general that they are not using the' Eldridge rating book, or any other form of uniform premium making. .... . The Milwaukee Mechanics' Fire In surance company has succeded in making a strong showing in its own defense, and other companies are said to be likely to get away without a lawsuit. What the insurance companies most fear in the pending . suits is the threatened receivership, which the at torney general says he-will clap down upon them in case they continue to fix their rates according to the Eldridge books, or any . other system of uniform rate making. The insur ance companies have -seen the dis astrous effects of receiverships as ap plied to the brewing - companies, and they have no desire to attempt to "buck" this game. The threat of the attorney general to throw the com panies into the hands of receivers went into effect as soon as the in junction was granted. He asked in his injunction petition that receivers be appointed in case the injunction should be violated, and this applies to business now being written. Under the order ot the court, the companies are supposed to be cut loose from the rating books even at the present time. The superintendent of insurance. Charles W. Barnes, is also receiving many letters from insurance com panies. Most of the companies simply acknowledge the receipt of the papers in the case, but some of the concerns declare emphatically that they are not guilty of the charge of combina tion. . , FORAKER ON WAR PATH. The Senator Attacks Roosevelt, Taft and Several Others. Bellefontaine, O., July. 29. Senator Joseph B. Foraker, in a speech at the Logan County Chautauqua attacked President Roosevelt and Secretary Taft, and took flings at Senator Tillman, Representative Burton of Cleveland, and Myron T. Herrick, ex-governor of Ohio. In the speeches Senator Foraker has been making In Ohio since last April, he has hitherto refrained from making any ' reference which could be constru ed as a direct attack upon Taft's candi dacy for the presidency. What he said on this occasion can be construed In no other light for the emphasis . placed urion his utterances impressed his audi ence that he purposed, not only to fight against his own elimination from the Ohio political situation, but also to do all in his power to encompass the da-i feat of thesecretiiy for the presiden tial nomination. In referring to President Roosevelt the senator -said: "The big stick won't work with any free born American citi zen and it won't do any good, either, to nut sugar on it in the shape or postomce Jobs."- Then, turning his attention to Taft he said: "I'm not a candidate for office,- but if I ever am a candidate 'I'll not get the lockjaw. When I can't talk to my constituents, I'll eliminate myself.- I don't have to hold office in or der to live." Speaking of the proposal to revise the tariff Foraker said: "Secretary Taft wants tariff revision, at least he is. re ported to have said so no longer than day before yesterday. ExGovernor Her- rick also wants revision, ana aun i wonder at that. Representative Theo dore Burton, who rumor says is anxious to take my place as senator, Dut x m not going to let him, also wants revision. "I'd like to know where these men who are going to be candidates will be gin to revise. I'd like to know where Secretary Taft will commence the cut-tine-. They say he is going to run for president. I understand he is coming to Ohio to make a speech in Columbus. Let him tell us then how he will revise the tariff, and where he will begin to cut. These men who are candidates must take a nosition on the great problems of the nation before I vote for them for president or anything else. I'm getting a bit particular about whom I vote for. It's time for some oi tnese men to De getting busy." The senator then quoted from a speech of Senator Tillman, and argued that the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments to the constitution were necessary by the situation created Dy the seceding states Immediately after the war. "Andrew Jackson," said Mr. Foraker. and here, by Innuendo, he again rapped President Roosevelt, "was one of those presidents who, believed ex ecutive nower was everything, ana un dertook rconnruction without consulting congress." Foraker said men like Tin man and Governor Vardaman of Missis sippi do not voice the true sentiment of the southern people. TREATY AS SIGNED. The Xew Convention Between Russia and Japan.

One of -Most Popular Members in Highest Tribunal. Adrian L. Greene, for the past six years a justice of the Kansas supreme cburt, died Sunday morning at Bat tle Creek, Mich., where he was taken two weeks ago in a last effort to save his life from a long and severe at tack of kidney trouble. Justice A. L. Greene of the Supreme . Creek. Arrangements have been made to hold two funeral services for Justice Greene. The first will be in Topeka on Wednesday morning, after which the body will be taken to Newton for further services, and interment. The exact time-for the services in Topeka Wednesday morning has not been decided, but they will be held at the First Presbyterian church. The body arrived over the Santa Fe this afternoon. At a special meeting or the execu tive council of the state this morning, it was ordered that the state house flags be placed at half. mast. The council also ordered the state house to be closed Wednesday morning, ana will attend the funeral in a body. Those justices of the supreme court who are in Topeka today met the family of Judge Greene at the Santa Fe train today. The supreme court will set aside a day for the presenta tion of a memorial to Judge Greene in the court room, and this memorial will be printed in the supreme court reports.

R. Peters. Word was received this morning ask ing that Dr. S. S. Estey of the First Presbyterian church officiate at the services In Topeka.- Governor Hoch will make no de cision concerning the appointment of a successor to Judge Greene until some davs have elapsed. It seems that the general opinion is that Judge A. W. Benson, ex-united states senator, a. resident of Ottawa, Franklin county, may be given the place, uovernor Hoch has several times indicated a ae- sire to appoint Judge Benson to the supreme bench, though he Has twice named other men when he might have chosen Benson. Judge Greene had not been able to occupy his place on the supreme court bench since last June. During June and the first half of July, his condition was very serious, and his most intimate friends believed that there was little hope of his recovery. Judge Greene himself knew that he was in a most Critical condition, but felt that If he could recover enough strength to be taken to Battle Creek, Mich., where he had once before re covered from a similar attack, he might recover. About the middle of July his Topeka physicians. Drs. Lindsav and' Stewart felt that it would "be possible for their patient to travel, and he was accordingly mov ed under care of a trained nurse, to Battle Creek. Justice Greene's con dition did not - improve at Battle Creek, and after a brave struggle, the kindly and well beloved Kansas jurist succumbed.' All of the immediate members of Judge Greene's family were present when death came. These included Mrs. A. L. Greene, the wife; Mrs. Gertrude Ludden and Miss Winifred Greene, daughters: Adrian L. Greene, jr., a son; C. F. Nissen of Newton, a brother-in-law; and Dr. Ludden. Dr. and Mrs. Ludden are from California. Justice Greene was 59 years of age, and his residence in Kansas dates from 1871. when he opened a law office at Newton. He has made his home at 1257 Western avenue, To peka since his appointment to the su preme bench. No member of the supreme court has made himself more beloved with his associates than Justice Greene. He was kindly and sympathetic, and a strong member of the court. He en joyed a good horse, and a common sight on the streets of Topeka was Justice Greene in his little road wag on, drawn by a spirited bay horse. Justice Greene owned considerable farm property, and is said to have been worth about $50,000. Judge Greene was born In Canton, Lewis county, Missouri, April 10, 1S48. He resided there until he was seventeen years old. He removed from there to Saline county. Mo., where he worked for five years on his father's farm. In the meantime he attended the common schools and by general reading had picked up the basis of a broad education. In 18 70 Judge Greene began the study of law. lie had a liking for the subject and he made rapid progress, so that in 1871 he was admitted to the bar. For eight months he prac ticed his profession at Miami, Mo. Then he decided to turn westward for his future career, and accordingly in 1871 he started for Kansas. He open ed a law office in Newton. In 1872 Judge Greene married Miss Anna Baker of Saline county, Mo. A daughter was born to them, now Mrs. Ludden. In 1880, Judges Greene was elected county attorney of Harvey county, serving two and one-half terms. His office holding extended over a period of time when among the first tests of the validity and efficiency of the pro hibitory law were mad. It was at first believed, by the liquor element leaders, when Judge Greene went into office that he would be an easy man to "handle." They soon found that they were greatly mistaken. Judge Greene came to ba known as an officer who Court Who Died Sunday at Battle Michigan. regarded his oath most sacredly. AH through his official career he was par ticularly loyal to his oath of office. He resigned the office and never after ward held a public office until his ap pointment as associate justice of the state supreme court. About 18S1. Judge Greene formed a law partnership with William M. Shaver, now grand secretary of the Royal Arch Masons of. the state. Mr. Shaver now lives in Topeka. From the time of his leaving the county at torney's office. Judge Greene gave himself largely to the practice of law. He became known as one of the strongest members of the bar, not only in Harvey county, but in all the south western country. He possessed a judicial mind, and by all he was known as a man of the best impulses. His legal work, after this time, brought him in conspicuous connec tion with the most celeb -ted cases in the state. In the latter '80s an effort was made to secure the nomination for district Judge on the Republican ticket for Judge Greene. The district for a time was composed of Harvey and Reno counties. Later, McPherson also was a part of the district. It was impossi ble .for the Republicans of Harvey -to "land" their candidate, although at one time, when Judge Greene was a candidate for the nomination the con vention was in a deadlock for more than 150 ballots, and the selection of a compromise candidate was the only way out of the difficulty. Although Judge Greene's friends were continuously loyal to him, he never reached the place, and the first and only, bench position which he held was that which he had at the time of death. Although not for himself a seeker for office. Judge Greene aided many another man into place. In 1886 and 1887 he was a member of the Repub lican state executive committee and in 1895 and 1896 he was a member of the Republican state central committee. In 1885 the first wife of Judge Greene died. In 1890 Judse Greene married Miss Elizabeth Thurston, and a daughter. Miss Winifred Greene, and son, Adrian L. Greene, jr., were born to them. The appointment to the associate justiceship of the state supreme court became effective . January 15, 1901, Governor Stanley having named him after the legislature had increased the number of judges from three to seven. He was nominated by the Republican state convention in the summer of 1902, and his term would have ex pired in 1909. It is a singular fact that of the four associate justices appointed by Gover nor Stanley, none of them are now on the state supreme court bench. Judge Pollock holds a federal Judgeship, while Judge Cunningham, Judge Ellis and Judge Greene have passed away. QUIET CAMPAIGN. Little Political Interest Is Apparent in lie Philippines.
