i :.·1 : z ' ,: :HINK THE KAISR CAlY Violated All Obligations of Position and Relationship When Albers Victor Died. On a Hunting Trip While His Cou sin Was Lying Cold in Death. Scant Signs of Grief at His Court-Prin coss Mpry MIy Not Marry Within Five Yeers. LCbpyright. 1802, Now York Assoeiated Pres.1l LoNeno, "Jan. 22.-Lord Salisbury having suddenly taken an extraordinary step in cancelling Sir t. D. Morler's appointment as ambassador to Rome, and dsoididing to retain him at St. Petersburg, the foreign oflae naturally is instructed to state that Morier's health is improving and he ex presses williugness to remain in Russia. It seegns,-however, that the retention, of Mo rierit St. Petersburg is due to the fact that the government is co-operating with the German and Italian governments in trying to persuade the czar to abandon the French alliance and join the European pact, leaving France isolated. Morior, who is much liked by the czar, is using his in flunence to arrange a conference between the emperors of Russia and Germany, at which it is hoped the old harmony of relations may be re-established. Baron Vivian, who was nominated for the St. Petersburg position, has, in the meantime, had his ap pointment to Rome approved by the queen. The prince of Wales naesed several hours at Marlborough house to-day, and returned to Windsor castle this evening to attend private service in St. George's chapel. After the service all prooeeded to Memorial chapel. It was the dnal family gathering around the coffin of the duke of Clarence. The neslect of the German kaiser to ob serve the respect due to the duke of Clar ence is resented in the court circle here. The emperor went on a shootine excursion to Buchsburg on the evening of the duke's death, although he ihad been apprised that his condition was desperate. Even after receiving a telegram announcing the duke's death lie had another day's shooting, and instead of immediately hastening to express condolence, the emperor did not call on the British ambassador until Sunday after noon. Finally, the nearness of relation ship justified the court here in expecting that the e peror would order mourning for three weei instead of three days. The ax-empress i believed to have written to a personage in the English court that she has been pained by her son's want of conusdera tion agd that shbe had ilso to complain as the emperor did not call upon her at cus tom and dcty diotatediuntil thethird day after the-duke of Clarence's death. The best interpretation put on the behavior of the emperor is that he had'a fit of ecoentria humor, such as now and then frequently ocours, and allowed his latent ill-will towards the prince of Wales to display itself. . Researches for precedents enabling Prince George to marry LPrincess Mary have disclosed the fact that it is the rule that in the event of the death of her be trothed, a royal princess must wait live year's before becoming again betrothed. Rlegarding the refusal of the miners' federation to adopt a resolution of condo lence, a leading union paper, the Work men's Times, while expressing tendo:ost sympathy for Princess Mary, declines to magnify this single inetance of blighted hopes into a national calamity, and pro tests that men ought not to allow it to shift their mental balance or seduce them to snivelling and effusive declarations of loy altv to the throne. The Newfoundland government is press ing the imperial government to sanction the ratification of a treaty with the United States negotiated by Bond in 1890, and has urged that there be no further delay, in or der that the treaty may vase the United States congress before March 4. Lord Knutsford, imperial secretary for the colo nies, appears reluctant to move in the matter. Defeated the Natives. LoNcON, Jan. 29.-A dispatch from Paris to the Times says that the expedition sent out by the French government, against the tribes o; Samory,4p the French Soudan, to punish them for their nets of lawlessness, had an engagement with the natives on Jan. 11. The natives greatly outnumbered the forces of the expedition, but after hard fighting were repulsed. The French loss was six killed and thirty wounded. The natives left several tundred of their num her dead on the field. DEFRAUDED OF HER PROPERTY. Remarkable Story of an Old Mendicant of Sioux City. Sioux CrIy, Iowa, Jan. 22.-A remarkable story is told by an old lady who lives in a woodshed in the rear of a prominent law yer's residence in this city. She says she is a daughter of Gon. Patterson, of Mexican war fame, and is the wife of Col. Graham. She followed a regiment to Mexico, where she and a daughter of Gen. Taylor carried the flag over the walls at Chapultepso, when it had fallen from the hands of Major Vtndorn. She says her father was very rich when he died, and charges Gov. l'attison, of Pennsylvania, with kheping her from her inheritance. She came here nonu years ago from New Or leans; bringing with her about $15,000, which she invested in property. This is all gone, and she declares she was swindled out of it by parties here. She hlis lived in a filthy hovel a long while, depending on the county for a scant supply of 'coal The fact of her being kept in such peverty causes indignation among the people, and she doubtless will be cared for hereafter. A large amount of jewelry and silver plate, which she had when she camo here, is gone, but she still keeps a number of beantfful dresses. Her story is generally believed, though the connection with the Pennsyl vania governor Is not clear. Gould Gracefully Acquiesces. NEw Yonx, Jan. 22.-Iteplying to the de mand of the Missouri Pacific for a special meeting of the advisory board of the Western Traffic association, to consider the Charge of violation of agreements, Presi dent Roesw l Miller to-day wrote Jay Gould that it was very doubtful if a querunm could be liad for such a special seeting, and he trusted Mr. Gould would not insist on it. If a quorum were not proesent at the regular Apt it meeting, he would then consider it his duty to call a special meeting. With patience in the matter he was sore the association would be much strengthened. Mr. Gould re plied, recognizing the force of the objes tions and acquiescing in them, pirticularly in view of the statement that if there wete no quorum at the next regular meeting a special meeting would be called. TIE NE W YORK LIFE. 'lhe lepoar ofb the iliuhrane Department t New Yorit. Now You, Jan. 22.--The report of the insuranee department of -the state of New York, of its examination into- the condition and affairs of the New York Life Insurance company, was made public to-day b9y Sup erintendent Pierce, who presents a "um mary of the results of the investigation made by Deputy Shannon, with his Own comments thereon, The following are the principal parts of Pierce's statement: "The most satisfactory result appearing in the report is thee conclusion reached that this great and useful institution of onr state is, beyond all question, solvent and is the actual owner and pos sessor of a surplus of available assets and property exceedina present liabilittl by the sum of $14,708,675, divided, genera. account $6,088,186, tontine accumulation $8,670,689. Those interested may be as sured this conclusion is accurate and trust worthy." Tiae examination of the com pany grew out ef charges of reckless man agement and corrupt practices made against the officers' and trustees, particularly against thor president, Wm, H. Gheers, qpen the responsibility of the then cashier, Theodore Beatsa. The charges were origi nally madefour years ago and investigatation at the time by a committee of the trustees favored the management. A New York newspaper unearthed the charges which were flirt published in this city last sum mer. After their publication, BIanta re newed his charges and added new ones. Speaking of some the investments, the report says the actual cost of Holbrook hall to the company was $1,009,860, while the actual value thereof, as estimated by the appraiser of the department, does not excead $480,000. The superintendent says: "Careful consideration of the facts leads me to state that no reasonable excuse or explanation has been offered to rebntt the charges of gross neglect and incompetency in the management of this property, from' which resulted this great loss of over half a million dollars in this single investment. There appears to have been a loss of $328, 9j4 in the Plaza ihotel investment. The home office building also shows a large shrinkage in value. A real estate invest ment in Paris, France, which cost the com geny $1,102,600, and which the French gov ernment values at only $470,400, and which the company's own selected appraisers value at only $787,200, furnishes another instance of great shrinkage in value and ap parently of great extravagance of price paid." Under the head of agency management, Shannon reviews fully the facts relating to the accounts of the Spanish-American de partment and other agencies in question, showing that those three agencies are in debted to the company upwards of $1,500, 000. He says, "After a careful reading and examination of this potion of the report, I am forced to the conclumson that the facts presented clearly indicate that a state of affairs exists in the company's agency man agement calling for the severest criticism and condeimnation, and which, if con tinued, must prove ruinous to the com pany." Superintendent Pierce says the facts leave no doubt in his mind that sev eral hundred thousand dollars should be added to these figures on account of large allowitnees improperly made; that this whole agency business was entirely in favor of the interests and profits of agents and against those of the comltny; and that the muanagemeantwas guilty of gross neglect in pertnitting such, continuous deviations from ordiniulyrhdsinessf'ules, to the great loss of the company. The detailed report of Deputy Shannon shows that on July 30 last the total assets of the company were $120.710,690, and the total liabilities $106.002,014, leaving a gross surplus of $14,708,675. Among other things Banta charged that the cornysny paid many thousands of dollars in the shape of black mail to prevent the exposure of charges of misconduct and mismanagement. Shannon says the truth of this charge is admitted by officers. Several thousand dollars were paid to one writer for the purpose of sup pressing the publication of articles he had prepared attacking the management of the company. DEPUTIES AND THEIR PAY.

MISSOULA, Jan. 22.-[Speeial.]-County Commissioners Marion and Mittower met in special session to-day to decide as to the number of deputies to be allowed the county officials under the salary law, and salaries that are not now fixed by law to be paid such deputies.

An Unpopular Jail. BUrTE, Jan. 22.-[Special.]-The sheriff's officers this afternoon discovered another attempt at breaking from the county jail. It was found that one of the new bars, re cently put in to replace those sawed through three weeks ago, had been nearly sawed through and only required a jerk to break it.

WASHINoTON, Jan. 22.-First Assistant Quartermaster-General Whitfield has re ceived from the postmaster at Baird, Allan county, Texas, an explanation of the con federate flag incident. He said that at the time the county fair was in progress the citizens decorated and displayed as many flags as they could obtain. The supply df United States flags became exhausted, and the owner of the building in which the postoffioe was located procured some bunt ing and had his sister rumake a flag. With only imperfect knowledge of how the United States flag is fashioned, the result of her labor was a complete failure, except as a display of bunting. Instead of thir teen stripes, her flag had only three, with nine stars in the blue field. But it was hoisted over the postoffice building. Gen. Whitfield. however, is in possession of affidavits of five reputable people, who de clare that on several specified dates they saw the confederate flag flying over the postoflice building, and were told by citi zens of the town that it was the confeder ate flag. but inasmuch as the postmaster decalred that the flag was not a confederate flag, and not purposely made to resemble one, and expressed deep regret that he had done anything that could be construed as a disloyal act toward the government, Whitfield is inclined to. let the incident pass. JUSTICE BRADLEY DEAD. Not -Unexlected, as He IHad Been Long Unwell. WAbsINGTON, Jan. 22.-Justice Bradley, of the United States supreme court, died at 6:15 this morning. His death was not un expected as it has been known for some months that he was far from being well. An attack of the grip last spring left him in a much debilitated condition from which he seemed unable to rally. During the greater part of the pi esent term of court he was unable to be present. With his declin ing yea's and the cold, damp weather pre vailing it was impossible for him to re cover. Two days ago he rallied and it was thought he might shake off the illness, but yesterday he began sinking. The funeral arrangements, in accordance with the wishes of the dead justice, will be quiet. Private service will be held at his late residence Sunday afternoon and the remains will then be taken to Newark, N. J., where the interment takes place on Monday. The supreme court adjourned immediately after assembling until next Tuesday. The reception to have been held at- the White house to-morrow has been post poned, as also the dinner which Secretary Tracy was to have given to-night in the home of President and Mrs. Harrison. on account of the death of Justice Bradley. International Silver Question. WASBINGTON, Jan. 22.-Minister Lincoln has been instructed to invite Great Britain to join in the international conference on the silver question, if, in his opinion, the feeling of the English cabinet is such as to justify the invitation. It is learned on good authority that this movement looks to the arrangement of an international silver convention, and that negotiations to that end are now in progress with Great Brit ain, Germany and France.

PZTrstuno, Jan. 22;-The jury in the fa moue oriminal libel suit of Quay against the Plttsburg Pos publishbing company, A. J. Barr, president, and Jas. Mills, editor, brought in a verdict this evening of guilty in the manner and form as indicated. Judge Horter, in his charge to the jury this afternoon, said it the publicatfon were without negligence, then the jury must nc quit. The jury must be satisfied beyond a reasonable 4oubt that the publication was made negligintly and maliciously, other wise their verdict must be for defendants. Continuing, he said: "It is the duty of the commonwetith to prove malice, If the words need were necessarily of a character to blicken reputation, and the charge is false, the law presumes malice. In this case there is no evidence or allegation, of any special meaning, and therefore the meaning is to be gathered fromtho whole article on the subject, and aftte obtaining ill light possible." At six o'clock the jury came in and asked for ad ditional insiructions. The points on which they-desired information were whether the jury would be justified in bringing in a ver dict of guilty, if they found no malice, but negligence;.a iro if defendants should be found guilty as a corporation or individ uals. t he judge said where negligence is found the law presumed malice, and if it was malicious or negligence, it was the duty of the jurors to convict those defend ants who are responsible for the publica tion. The jury, after an hour, returned with a verdict an sbove. The Post will to-morrow comment !ditorially, saying a republican court, a republican prosecuting attorney, and a ,republican jury have convicted a democratio journal of libel on a leader of the republiqan party. The Post will also denounce ;the method of the republican district atorney, both in Beaver county and in thiltrial, in securing a jury mainly of republosans. The Post announces that this nallifis the freedom ot the press and declares iat will protest against it in'the higest couats of the country. PEACE OR WAR? The Next Few Hours Will Determine the SMatter. CHIcAGo, Jan. 28.-The Inter-Ocean will print this morning a Washington spe cial asserting that the crisis In, Chilian matters is rapidly approaching. Yesterday it says, an ultimatum was sent to the Chilian governmet. through Minister Egan. The dispatch was signed by Sec retary Blaine. Ii was of a peregpptory character and di rected Egan to demand categorically of the Chiliasn government an immediate an swer to the request already made. The purpose of it is to inform the Chilian government that the United States must have an answer at once to its demand for reparation and apology. The president's message is to be sent to congress Monday. whatever may be the answer from Egan. An immense mast of correspondence will be sent with the message, but it will not be necessary for the people to read it to arrive at "an understanding of the mat ter. That can be learned from Presi dnt isarrison's message, which will be about three newspaper columns in length, and will compactly state the American case. The presi dent will not delay six months or six weeks more for the Chilians.. There will be no more delay. Unless he and the cabinet are much mistaken, the next few hours will determine whether there will be peace or war. ARBITRATION WILL BE ASKED. If Chill and the United States Do Not Agree. NEW YORx, Jan. 22.-The Herald's San tiago cablegram says: Within the coming week the Chilian government will submit its views and ideas to the United States government. Then if the two govern ments cannot come to an agreement among themselves, arbitration willbe asked by Chili on the questions in dispute. Sec retary Boscunan assured me, from advices sent by Minister Montt, that. matters be tween the two countries are in an extremely fair way for the speedy arrival at an am icable conclusion. Secretary Blaine, he says, has acted throughout in a conciliating manner. It is the general opinion in gov ernment circles that the alarming mes sages wired abroad have been sent by Inter ested parties with the intention of influ encing the money market. Relative to the articles in the local papers attacking Min ister Egan, the advicee say El Heraldo has been asked to discontinue the attack, and promised to do so, but was forced into making a reply owine to a letter published in other papers and signed Frank Egan, defending his father from the El Heraldo's criticisms. I learn that the withdrawal of MLatta'~ letters was agreeable to both Pres ident Harrison and Secretary Blaine." What Caused the Change. WAShINOTON, Jan. 22.-The Star has this: "According to best information the founda tions for the change in opinion which has been experienced-from war to peace-is that Chili suggested to this country that about six weeks more time should be al lowed her within which to determine whether or not she would make an apology. No promise of renaration is made, but it is broadly asserted that Chili will do what she thinks is right after having exhausted her inquiries. It is said Blaine regarded. this as sulffoient to warrant the delay sug gested, but the president didnot agi ee. If, as reported, the Chilian government is about to ask, through Minister Montt, for the recall of Minister Egan, the request will not likely be granted. President liar rison is entirely eatisfied with Egan's course." TIhe Chillan Situation. \VAeSmN.TOr, Jan. 22.-No dispatches have been received at either the state or navy department in regard to the condition of affairs in Chili. At a meeting of the cab inet to-day the Chilian question was dis cussed. It is iimpossible at this writing to obtain any official information on this sub ject, but it is generally understood that the cabinet practically decided to eubmit the matter to congress early next week in order that congress as well no the country at large might know the exact status ,f the controversy. While suer a course would not in itself indicate the termination of the diplomatic negotiations for a settle ment of the matter in dispute, it would give tha.public, through contiess, an op portunity to determine which country is responsible for the present unsettled state of affairs. A Vessel Imltpresed. I'IILADnLVPI IA, Jan. 22_.-Shipping diroles were stirred up to-day over the report that the government had impressed the Anmerican line steamer Ohio to be used in case of war. Ollicers of the steamship company admitted that the Ohio was taken off her regular trip, but were careful to say she had not been char tored by the government. From another reliable soaroe it was learned that without doubt the government had exercised its right to take possession of any merchant vessel anilina under the national flag for use when war or the probability of war de mands It, and under this law had impressed the Ohio. PNENTY CHARRED BODIES, The Indianapolis Horror Proves More Terrible Than Was at First Supposed. A. Soore of Helpless Invalids and Cripples Burned in Their Rooms. Herolsm of Those Engaged in the Work of RHesues-Thrlling Zaperiencea Related by Survivors. INDIANAPoLrs, .Jan. 22.-A score of help less human beings burned to death, That I. the record of Thursday night. At 11:45 that night an alarm was turned in from the corner of Meridian and Georgia streets, being in the heart of the wholesale trading distriot. People naturally expected a great fire, but when the box at Illinois and Louisiana streets was pulled, and in a moment aeoona and third alarms were heard, it was plain the conflagration was a dangerous one. Every piece of fire appar atus in the city was quickly on the run and upon arrival the firemen were horrified to see flames leaping from the roof and fourth floor windows of the National SIuri cal institute, located on the corner of Illi nois and Georgia streets, with an extension on the latter street. About 250 crippled people were in the institute at the time. The building was almost totally enveloped in flames, and the order was, "Let the building burn, but save the people." When the fire was discovered it was confined to the Georgia street building, but soon swept across'tbe alley and both buildings were enveloped in flames. On the third and fourth floors horrible work was done. The buildings were a net work of narrow halls, entrances and stair ways. In small rooms throughout the building were from one to four beds, all occupied by patients, many perfectly help less. When they became aware. of their peril they were frantic in their efforts to reach places of safety. Every effort was made by the fire, police and ambulance forces to rescue the unfortunates, and many acts of heroism and daring were performed. The Surgical institute was a veritable fire trap. The stairways were narrow, halls dark, and the whole structure a labyrinth. The rooms on the third and fourth floors of the main building, and nearest the alley, were the scenes of the greatest fatalities. In one of these rooms were two women, both of whom perished. In another there was a man whose lower extremities were paralyzed. Although unable to walk he dragged himself to a window at the rear of the building and threw himself out. He dropped about eight feet to a roof, thenyto another, and finally rolled off to the groubd, saving himself from death. The entire rear half of the Georgia street building fell in. The debris filled com pletely the first story and when the fireme n began to search for the dead they were obliged to commence work on a level with the second floor. It will be Sieveral days before they can reach the bottom. The killed are: Lute L. Strong, Salem, Ore.; Mrs. Wezuras, Dallas, Tex.; William Ram stack, Milwaukee: Miss Kate Burns, New port, Minn.; Frank Burns, Newport, Minn.; Minnie Arnold, Lancaster, Mo.; Irma Payne, Dexter, Minn.; Stella Spees, Ma comb, 0.; Minnie McDonald, Negaunee, O.; Geo. Ellis, California, Ky.; Mrs. Earb, and daughter, Shelby, O.; Fannie Breeden, Memphis, Tenn,; Mortie Decko and Fred erick Docendorf, Stillwater, Minn.; Han. nah Brook, Taylorville, Ill.: C. H. Georman, McDonald, Mich.; A. Bayless. Injured, Fannie Stern, Des Moines, Ia.; Clara Morris and Mrs. Thomas, Indianap olis: Mrs. J. Gild and son. Dedaryville, Ind.; Grant Nanhaesen, Athens, N. Y.; W. D. Wagner, Troy, O.; Wm. H. Albach, Dunkirk, N. Y.; Nora Knowles, Indepen dence, Ind.: Will Mansfield. Otaego, N. Y.; Mrs. John Stokes, Danville, Ill.; Nellie Mason, Wisconsin; Mrs, G. J. Simpson and daughter, R. Connor and iBoy Harris, New Orleans; Minnie Gargarus, Chicago; Mrs. H. H. Idena and son. Many of the above are fatally injured. In addition to those mentioned, six bodies have been taken out of the ruins and not yet identified. It is not known how the fire started, but it is supposed by spontan eous combustion. Early this morning ghouls began work among the ruins and no small amount of jewelry and valuables were vilfered by thieves. Detectives Gage and Kinney arrested a man who gave his name as Russell. They found him rum maging among the debris, and in his pockets were money and other articles thought to be stolen from the effects of patients. The loss to building, furniture, etc., aggregates about $40,000. TERRIBLE SCENEIS. Witnessed by Those Near the Place of the Holocaust. INDIANAPOLIs, Jan. 2.2-The scenes in Griffith's restaurant, at the Grand hotel and the Weuddell kbuse, where the injured had been taken were very sad. Soon after daylight this morning the people began to gather at the scene of tboe holocaust. To picture all that transpired around about the burned dwelling from that time would be difficult. A strong guard of police kept back thd crowd. By seven o'clock the news of the fire spread all over the city and hun dreds of persons who had relatives or ac qhuaintances in the institution began to join the vast crowd. They gearched for dear ones among the dead and living, and the grief of those unable to find their relatives was heartrending. While this was transpiring the firemen, police and volunteers were prosecuting the search in the ruins for more bodies. In the upper rooms in the east wing of the building four bodies, burned to a trip, were discovered. Then the dangerous task of renmovina the debris began. Many pairs of braces were unearthed in the ruins, showing that sone of the unfortunates in their effort to escape had loosened and thrown the.i away. Among the most thrilling experiences was that of Mrs. E. D. Purdy, who, with her little daughter, slept on the upper floor. hle had only time to throw a quilt over the crippled nald and escape into the hall in her night robe. She dragged her little girl iabout seventy-five feet to the head of the stairtcase iand had made her way half way down the steps leading to the third floor, when she lost her balauee and fell. The inother and child wore found ott the land ine shortly after by John Gavin, who picked nou the child, while a traveoling man, whose anme is not known, took Mrs. Purdy, These men fought their way out with their burdens through the smoke and the crowd. Me. Purdy ltil child will recover. William Kimball, a young mu:an with both legs crippled, said: "I was sleeping on the fourth floor, and awoke with a sense of strangulation. Front less than a foot above my face and up to the ceiling was a doense sttls of sruoko. 1 just rolled out of bed. I could not move about with my braces on, so I took them off, lying curled up on my side. It was so hot I thought I was going to die. I called as loud as I could, 'Help, helpl here, No. 991 Just then here was a crash of the d0r.~d14 big colored man fell over me. e picked n . up bodily, dashed through the halls and down the stairways and brought me hre. God knows I am thankful." One of the most pitiful cases was that of a little eight-year-old child, Ethel Platt, daughter of James H. Platt, of Plnkdiey- . ville, Ill. Little Ethel was fund in her bed on tae third floor half strangled withamoke and helpless from spinal trouble. Wrapped in a blanket, she was taken in the arms of a fireman and carried down to the next foor, through the dense smoke and past the roaring flames, to a window, and as the crowd gathered below and extended their arms, she was thrown out of the window. With a broken leg she was taken across Illinois street and placed on a table and covered with blankets. She suffered ter ribly, and frequently screamed out in agony. Lasarus Stearns, of Dubuque, Iowa, a helpless cripple, lay on his bed and yelled for aid. The fire burned through the par tition at the foot of the bed and the burn ing boards fell on him. He became un conscious, and when rescued it was found that his limbs were so badly burned that the flesh had buost asunder. Mrs. G. J. Simpson and her little girl, while being carried out by the firemen. were badly burned by the fire. IB. Conner, the father of a little boy who was a patidst, in his efforts to save his child, fell from the second to the first floor of the east wing through a hole in the floor, receiving fatal iniunries. When the firemen first arrived a woman was seen at a window on the upper floor, clutching a babe in one hand and strug gling with the other to raise a sash. She finallypuceeded, and screams fell upon the ears of thousands of spectators. No ladders were at hand and nothing could be done. The flames were closing in about her, and she looked back into the furnace of death, then down to the pavement below. Sud denly, she clasped the babe to her breast, then tossed it out of the window and gave her life to the flames within. As the child left the arms of its mother, Pipeman O'Brien planted himself firmly beneath the window and caught the child, which in a few minutes was smiling and happy, seem ingly unconscious of its surroundings. The heroism of Fireman John Louckewill long be remembered: He ascended an ex tension ladder to the upper floor, and, as he reached the window sill, was met by Fireman Robertson, who had pushed his way through the smoke with a child in his arms. Loucks grasped the . child and started down, but had` de soended only a few feet when he missedl his footing and fell headforemost. His leg caught in the rounds of the ladder and was broken, but he held the child and grasped the ladder with his hand. As he hung there, the spectators below turned away, thinking he would soon be obliged to loosen his grasp and fall. In a moment, however, two other firemen reached him, and carried the injured man and child safely to the ground. Fireman Connelly went to a second-story room, where he found a number.of female patients. He took one under each arm and ordering a third to cling about his neck, landed them safely on the floor below. Fireman Higgins stood -on the sidewalk and seeing a woman leap from a window, determined to save her life. Search of the rooms after the smoke cleared out revealed some horrible scenes. In one room on the third t.oor four vic time were found dead, kneeling in an atti tude of prayer. Windows were up. but the unfortunates had a Frently- mde no ef -for t., ý i...., ý 'tts ie quand had tried to work their way out. Burned at Sea. LoNDoN, Jan. 2.--The British steamer Eayptian Monarch, from New York, re ports that early on the morning of Jan. 1fP she sighted a wooden vessel, apparently an American, on fire.

The life boat of the steamer was hastily cleared away, but before it could be lowered the bowsprit fell and the men were not afterwards seen. Capt.
