Most of the Hotels and Summer Resorts Go Up in Smoke. A Strong Wind Helped on the Progrese of the WFames-seaside Avenue Laid Waste. ROOCAWAY BracH, Sept. 20.-The largest conflagration that ever occurred on the Long Island eoeet destroyed over one hun dred frame buildings here to-day and left about one hundred and sixty aores a mass of ruins. The main portion of' the famous old summer resort is completely wiped out. The fire broke one about 12:25 this after noon in the Seaside museum. A high wind carried the flames across Seaside avenue within five minutes after the flames broke through the roof of the museum. The fire, roaring on both sides of the avenue and fanned by the wind, began eating its way in all directions. In quisk succession the flames attacked the hotels along the beach .and on both sides of Seaside avenue. Among the principal buildings burned were the Collins hotel, Brond'i Ocean hotel, the New York hotel, Peterson's and Barry's hotels, Myers' hotel, the Pavilion and Pier, Columbus hotel, Roach's hotel, the annex of Wain wright & Smith's hotel and pavilion, Burch ill's grocery store, Simpson's hotel, Kruse's hotel, Dr. Pull's drug store, Peterson's pool room, Globe hotel, the fire tower, electric light station, Garrison's hotel, and on the beach the Hotel Stuttgart, Ocean house, Columbia, Sohuber's hotel, Morrison's hoe tel, Grand Republic hotel, Meissner's hotel, a shooting gallery and carousal, Seaman's hotel, Hotel Albemarle and St. James-on Boalevarde. Besides these buildings, all of large size, a host of smaller buildings occun pied by drug stores, eigar stores, ice cream and candy stores, shooting galleries and stores of such class, were destroyed. With them went the merry-go-rounds, carousals, toboggan slides and many similar devices always found at seaside resorts. In vain the few residents of the beach, aided by boatmen, battled with the flames. The efforts were thrown away. Aid was summoned, but, arriving, mnde little differ ence. About 6:30 p. m. the flames, after having practically burned themselves out for want of immediate materialupon which to feed, were brought under control, but fire was still burning brightly at midnight in the center of thu burned district. How the flames started is unknown. Mrs. Phillips, employed in the museum, is the only person known to Ihave lost life in the conflagration. A number of persons re estved burns and other injuries while fight ing the flames. It is inmpossible to-night even to apr,roximately estimate the amount of losses. By some it is estimated at over 2.000,000, while others do not believe the total will amount to one-quarter that amount. A vast undesirable crowd is con gregating, consisting principally of ghouls who are reaping a rich harvest from the misfortunes of burned out people. It is said the insulance policies will not more than half cover the losses. CAUSED BY THE WOMEN. The Race War in Arkansas Brought On by Them. FINE BLUTFF, Ark., Sept. 20.-An Associ ated Press correspondent received the first reliable information to-night from the scene of the race war in Calhoun county. It dates back six months, when a colored woman was whipped by vhitecape for in ulting a white woman. Trouble has been brewing ever since and the negroes have been rtcently organizing with the alleged purpose of killing all whitecaps. The white people leanned of the movement and a posse went in sear ch of negroes. They met last Saturday and five neuro:,s were killed out right and a white man wounded. Jim Har ieon, rolored, leader of the negroes, was hanged. As nothing new came from there to-day it s ems the matter has quieted down. Trouble was hastened to a crisis by rows around election time and one Unsill, a white man is charged by some with en couraging the negroes in their aggressions. Have Selected Some Victims. LITTLE ROCK, Sept. 20.-A special to the Gazette from Thornton, Ark., says the ne gross who w~ie arrested in Calhoun county made affidavit that the object of the organ ization was to kill Sheriff Tomlinson, Clerk Means and several other citizens. A nam her of the members of the organization are still in hiding. ' he negroes, according to the correspondent, openly assert that Unsill is the cause of the trouble. Ralltrad Bate War Impendiang. Cuirrcro, Sept. 20.-The Southern Pacific railroad has given notice of withdrawal from the Western Traffic association. It seems the great Huntington corporation is getting ready to fight northern competitors who defied it by breaking away from the Transcontinental association. The West ern Traffic association is now practically dead and it is believed in railway circles that its affairs will be wound up at the next meeting of the advisory board, October 11. Tho Transocontinental is also going to pieces iapidly and the only association west of Chicago which really is of any value is the Western Freight aseociation. Without any explanation the Nickel Plate has put into effect a passenger rate of *12.50 fromn Chioago to New York, a cut of $7.0). The chairman of the Central TratBo association is trying to find out what it means and pre vent demoralization, but a rate war seems likely. No Cholera It New York., New YoIux Sept. 20.-The hoard of health posted the following bulletin at four o'clock this afternoon: "There have been no cases of cholera in the city since last bulletin. The only suspected ease is that of Up Joe Wah, 14 Mott street, who died to-day and his body removed to the foot of East Six teenth street for examination." Very Miuch Like Montaua.

Mrsoour.A, Sept. 20.--[pecial.l-John Burans, the convicted murderer of Mauries Higllns was brought into the district court this morning for sentende. He seemed to be very cool and self-pospessed, much more than the venerable judge whose duty at was to spes the sentence of death upon him. When he was asked If he had anything to say why sentence should not be passed upon him, he said: "I am not the man who, did the shooting. I am innocent and there is one who knows I am innocent, and tht is God Almighty. I am not afraid to be hung, but I do not want to be hung for a crime I did not commit. The court should look after the man Brown. Brown is probably somewhere in the United States keeping oases on this trial and he should be found." The judge did not say anything more than the usual formula, and set the dste of hanging at November 11, 1892. The man Brown is the one referred to by Lyons as his partner. Brown has always been supposed to be a mythical Iersonage introduced by the defense as the person who was with Lyona when he took the goods from the store during the die, while Burns has been credited with being the one. No ene could be found in Missoula that saw or knew Biown. It is now claimed that parties in Aries can testify that Lrons did have such a partner when he was there, and that he resembled Burns in general appear F. Lee was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary for eseaying from jail. The store and butcher shop of Alex Dow at Arles was totally destroyed by fire this morning about one o'clock.

They Could Do About All the Work in American Tin Plate Mills, Republican Nonsense About the Business Exploded by Hon. Wm. M. Springer. Carl Shorhur Gves His Reason for Sup poering OCleveland aud Stevenson--e., i publleans and Monopoeiste. MA'TOOw. Ill., Sept. 20.--Hon. William M. Springer addressed a large audience here to-day. His speech was prinoipally a re ply to that delivered by McKinley at El wood last week. He said that during the interval of nine months before starting thi increascd rate provided in the McKinley bill there was an enormous increase in the importation of plates to get them into the country under the old rates and sell them at increased rates. If the McKinley bill had taken effect on tin plates immediately on its passage, as it should have done, th-e government would have received over $10,000,000 more reve#le than it did from the importations. The people were com pelled to buy at the supposed increased price, however, and this ten millions of dollars was net profit to tin plate importers and jobbers. After working to their at most capacity for a time to meet the enor mons demand from the United States, the Welsh mills, after June 1, 1891, were obliged to shut down for a time in order that consumption might catch up with pro duotion. The republicans immediately set up the claim that the McKinley bill had coused the Walsh mills to shut down, and the industry to be transferred to this coun try. Thus history and facts were perverted to deceive our people. Congressman Springer further said that the manufacture of tin plates in this coun try is conceded by all to be an unprofitable industry which cannot exist without gov ernmeLt bounty or a high protective tariff. Either the government or the consumers of tin plates must pay $16,000,000 every year more than otherwise required in order to have outr annual supply of tin plates made here. The report of the government agent for the fiscal year ended June last, shows thatthe output of tin and terno plates in this country for that year was 13,240,830 pounds. '1 his is less than two per cent of the amount consumed in the same period. We were told when the McKinley bill was pending that within one year after its passage we would make here all the plates we could consume. Adoording to offloial report, only about one-quarter of the amount produced bete was tin plates, the other three-fourths being terne plates which were coated with lea`si id tin and used for roofing purposes only, and even this meagre output of lees than two per cent was not altogether of American production. Springer went on to say that the import ation of steel sheets or "black plates" used in the manufacture of tin plates, since the passage of the McKinley bill, began to in crease almost correspondingly with the in o: eased production of tin and teune plates. An agent of the treasury department claimed that for the last quarter of the last fiscal year 5,000,000 pounds of black plates were made in the United States, but where made or whether used in the manufacture of tin plates does not appear. But it does appear that the imuortations for that quar ter were over 4.000,000 pounds, and from this it is apparent that the greater amount of tin and terne plates produced in the United States were made by using imported black plates. The part performed in Amer ica in a large measure is a mere dipping process, the metals being mostly imported. It was stated in a circular recently issued by the Taylor company, of Philadelphia, that by using the latest Welsh dipping pot two boyr can dip seventy boxes of tin daily. If this is true twelve boys, by working the entire year, could have dipped the entire American production for the fiscal year, and at the same ratio, it would only require 642 boys to dip the entire amount required in the United States. 'Neither dipping boys nor men who box plates are skilled laborers, and are hired at the lowest prices for un skilled labor, but no matter how many per sons were engaged in the industry here the past year, it is evident the American people, who were subjected to a tax of $16,000,000 a year for building up the tin plate indus try, paid very dear for the luxury. Springer asserted that it was not intended to build up a bona fide tin plate industry in this conutry. The increased rate was largely lobbied through by the American Corrugated Roofing company, which wished to drive tin roofers out of the field, and has succeeded. The democratic party, if clothed with power by the people, will speedily put an end to this political partnership with private enterprise and restore the duty on tin plate to one cent a pound, or put it on the tree list. RECIPROCAL RASCALITY. Alliance of the Republican Party and the tonopollos. New YORK, Sept. .'.-Hon. Carl Schurz has written a letter addressed to the Cleve land and Stevenson clubs of Kings eounty and other citizens of Brooklyn. giving his views on the present national political situ tion. Sahurz was invited to express his opinion in an address, but ill health pre vented. Schurz says in part: "We are told that the tariff is the chief issue of the campaign. I certainly don't under-estimate the importance of any of its aspects, but regard it only as part of the former comprehensive question, which is not merely economic but political in char a:ter, and concerns the general working, and, in fact, the moral vitality of our dem eorrtio avetem of government. There al ways has been and always will be money used in elections for perfectly legitimate lu poses, but the aums which are now spent n I residential and state campaigns a gen eration ago would have been thought fab nlous. That much of this money is used for bribery and that the evil is growing and spreading from year to year cannot be denied." lieferring to party machines, he said the levelopment of party o-Rganization of late years had been largely in the direction of acuhine methods. What will the effect be on political life? It serves to raise up a race of unprincipled and visionary politi cians and to retire from publio life mell with patriotio ambition who wish to serve the public welfare according to their honest convictions. Sohurs entered into a lonehty discussion on the tariff question, imking the deduction that the repiublican party hias a sort of tacit partunrship with the benu.lciaries of the taritf--the nmoneved power-to do all it ranti in the way of furniehing campaign funds it keep the republican party in possession of the government. In return the reiubli cans do all they can by way of tariff legis laston to keep the moneyed power in the enjoymrent of large ilnancial power. "llepublilans tell us that the McKinley aet is the fauil act of the protective policy, und that nothing beyond it will over be asked. The country never had a protective tnriff,before the eansetrnr of which the poo. pie were not assured that it was the extreme measure of the demands that would be made, and after the enactment of which a olamor for more protection-higher duties -did not soon again begin. No it will be again if such republicans are entrusted with full power. More will be asked for, more will be granted, for more subsidy will be needed to keep the party in power." SHhurz devoted some space to the extolla tion of the democratic party and Grover Oleveland. After referring to Harrison's administration, he says of free coinage: "I regard the movement as gradually dy lag out. If Cleveland be elected to the presidency he will have more prestige and will influence vigorously in favor of sound finance. Under Cleveland's administration the free coinage heresy will lose its foot hold in the party in which it is numerically the strongest. If Cleveland be defeated it will resture the free coinage movement to new strength. The inevitable effect of the force bill would be a revival of negro dom ination in the south and with it a violent and disastrous disturbance of the relations of the two races." Schurz closed with the advice to his fel low citizens to support Cleveland's ean didacy. Weaver In Georgia. WATCIuOs, Sept. 20.-Weaver made his frst speech in Georgia at this place to-day.

D)UBLIN, Sept. 20.-T-here is renewed ex citement everywhere in Dublin in conse quence of the resumption of the eviction of tenants who are in arrears for rents. In county Clare the sheriff proceeded yester day with a large force of police to Cool ready to dispossess delinquent tenants, but instead of theresistance expected the tenant was ready to pay the back rent. At the next house the sheriff found the same con dition of affairs. The result of the raid was that the rents were paid and none of the tenants evicted. The Freeman's Jour nal, anti-Parnellite, declares that the at tempted evictions were the result of the landlords' desire to discredit a home rule government. ousiness Dull in England. LoNDoN. Sept. 20.-At the annual meeting of the chamber of commerce to-day Sir Albert Rlollit, president, said he was not able to congratulate the country upon trade prospects. Tile coal, iron and steel trades are dull, textile industries barrassed by tariff and perplexed by economic, monetary and labor problems. Sheffield and other centers complain of the destruction of old branches of business by the tariff. Ship building is little more than a remembrance. Official returns.

NOT IN WARLIKE ARRAY, The Grand Parade of Old Soldiers at Washington a Triumph of Peacea Largest in the History of the Grand Army of the Republic. Vies-Prelsdent Morton, Cabinet Omfcers and Other Distinguished Men and Womesn Review the ProcessLen. WAsrNro'ror, Sept. 10.-Tbh feature in to-day's proceedings was the Grand Army reunion parade of veterans. In the early morning the weather was mild and hazy; later the sun came out, shedding a genial warmth, but the sky soon clouded over again and a cold wind made it uncomfort able in exposed places. Half-past nine was the hour set for starting the parade, and long before that time great crowds lined up against the wire cables stretched outward along the sides of the broad Pennsylvania avenue from the capitol building. The various veteran posts formed at their headquarters and marched to the politions assigned them on diagonal streets on each side of Pennsylvania avenue, beginning at the west in front of the capitol. The Illi nois posts, coming from the state in which the order was first organized, had the place of honor at the head of the line next to the general. In due order they marched through lanes of the thousands of people who lined the pavements and side streets, passed buildings vastly decorated with fluttering banners festooned with flags and streamers, cheered on by fresh voices of hundreds of school children singing patriotic airs. Grizzled veterans who twenty-seven years ago occupied two days in passing in review along this grand national avenue, moved to-day with thinned ranks, whose numbers did not preclude the completion of the journey within a single day. Then over rough cobblestones they marched as mem bars of a great modern army, tired, dusty, travel-stained, war-worn, but with a fierce exultation and pride born of the knowledge of their deeds and accomplishments; to day, over a smooth asphalt pavement they marched again, still proud that they had been members of that great army, but in the years that have thinned their ranks the fierce war spirit died away and left little behind but feelings of joy and good will to all men. In their grizzled locks and remin iecent faces one could seae the recognition of the fact that it was the last time that many of them woold see the national capitol. 8o it was that they decided to make the parade the greatest feature of the encampment, knowing it was a coincidence that could never be repeated. On the lawn adjoining the south wing of the tre.sunry bniloing a la gle co-ered stand, named in honor of Lincoln, were placed 800 school girls, so arranged in their red, white and blue dresses as to produce a living star spangled banner. Farther down, near Cen tral market, colored school girls were massed together on a stand, their melodi ous voices blending harmoniously in a grand chorus as the old soldiers marched past. The order of march was as follows: The citizens' committee, Old Guard of Washington as escort of the commander in-chief, Grand A my battalion of Albany, commander-in-chief, junior vice com mander-in-chief, official staff of com mander-in-chief, aids to commander-in chief. escorts of the Grand Army, First Defenders of the Sixth Massachusetts, United States Veteran Signal association, department of Illinois, Ed Harlan, com mander, with twenty-three posts and aErot 1,600 men in line, gathered from all parts of the state. Next came the Wisconsin de partment with more men than the state ever had before in any encampment narade headed by department commander, Col. C. B. Welton. G. W. Sutherland carried Old Abe, the famous war eagle, which was carried through the rebellion by the Eighth Wisconsin regiment. Theodore Riel, car rying a badger, emblematic of the Wiscon sin sabield, and D3c Aubury, the original newsboy of the Iron Brigade, carrying a number of the identical newspapers he bad unsold at the close of the war. 'Ihere were twenty-three posts in line. Next came the Pennsylvania department with the laroest representation in the whole line. Then came another heavy department, that of Ohio, headed by Commander I. F. Mack. Thees in order came New York with ten brigades, with Slocum. Sickles, Howard and Reynolds in the ranks; Connecticut and Massachusetts with Gen. Butler; California came next, all mounted, carrying a crimson 1iik banner with a picture of a grizzly bear. The department commander. JB. Falls. led four teen posts, and the admirable riding of the men was the subject of general cow went. Next followed Rthode Island, New Hamp shire, Virginia. North Carolina. Maryland. Iowa. Nebraska, Michigan, Indiana, Wyo mine and Colorado, included in one depart went, and made a fine showing with thirty. eight posts, led by Department Commander John C. Kennedy and his staff. Then came Kansas. Delaware, Missouri, Kentucky. West Virginia, Arkansas, Tenn esse, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Okla homs.
