RANDALL Widow of Late Representative Samuel 3. Randall of Pennsylvania. Fannie Ward Randall, widow of the late Samuel J. Randall, for years the demo cratic leader in the House of Representa tives, is dead at her home at Chestnut Hill, a suburb of Philadelphia. She was a daughter of Gen. Aaron Ward of Ossining, N. Y., who was a member of Congress from 1827 to 1843. Mrs. Randall was prominent in official circles in Washington during her husband's long career as the represen tative of the third congressional district of Pennsylvania, but since her husband's death she has lived quietly at Chestnut Hill. Mrs. Randall died suddenly Saturday af ternoon at her home in Chestnut Hill from a stroke of apoplexy. One of her daugh tere Annie R., who was the wife of Mr. C. C. Lancaster of this city,, died a year ago. Miss Susan W. Randall and Samuel J. Randall, Jr., daughter and son, survive her. The remains will be buried tomorrow afternoon in the famIil vault at Laurel cemetery, Pliladelphia. The announcement of Mrs. Randall's death will be received in this city with great sorrow, for the wife of no public man was ever more highly esteemed. The comfortable home of the family on Capitol Hill, during Mr. Randall's long service in Congress, was better known than many of the more pretentious residences of the west end. Mrb. Randall has only been here on short visits of late years. PASTOR'S RESIGNATION. Presbytery Disslves Relation With Westminster Church.

This morning it was stated at the morgue that there had been no identification of either body. The bodiet are those of col ored men. One is burned almost to a crisp. but there is enoughieft of the face of the other to enable acquaintances to recognise it. Those who receixpi injuries were taken to the Emergency Hakpital. One of them, a white man about thirty yeafs old, jumped from the second-story window of the burn ing house and sustained a fracture of the leg. His name was given as Alfred Don aldson. and he told the doctors that his home is at 9U. D street northwest. Dora Young, colored. twenty-two years old, liv ing at 1921 E street northwest, jumped from the roof of the same house and received an injury to her ankle. Ada Penny, colored. jumped from the window of house 1201 C street and injured her hip. The fire caused a great deal of excitement in that section of the city, and many fright ened neighbors got together their most val uable effects and were ready to leave their homes. It is thought that the explosion of an oil lamp caused the fire. There was some little delay in calling out the fire de partment, and when the firemen reached the scene the people in the houses were so great ly excited they hardly knew which way to turn. Women were screaming and men were running from one part of the house to another. The flames spread to other structures in a short time, and it was im possible to prevent the destruction of sev eral of them. Three houses on C street were practically destroyed and one on 12th street was damaged. Braved the Flaneim Policemen and firemen braved the flames and worked hard to prevent a fatality, but were unable to save the two men who lost their lives. Both men were seen moving about in the burning building, but the blaze was between them and those who were willing to lend assistance, and nothing could be done for them. When Donaldson appear ed at the window the people on the side walk shouted to him to hold on until they could rescue him, but he made a leap and was injured as stated. Dora Young, the woman who jumped from the roof of the corner house, was also great. ly excited and frightened. There was no occasion for her to jump. it is stated, as she had plenty of time to save herself without going upon the roof. During the progress of the fire it was said that several persons other than those who were known to have perished or been injured had been burned to death. Inmates of the house declared that there were several persons who were missing, and the firemen made a thorough search of the premises, but no more bodies were found. Although the blase was under control in a short time, the firemen remained about the scene of the fire until almost daybreak. The damage to- the buildings amounted to about $2,S00). James Richardson, owner of the property, had the buildings partly in sured. Houses 1201 and 1206 C street were occupied as a store and eating house by Ed ward F. Hill. His stock was partly insured. Building 3W2 12th street, occupied by Charles L. Smith was also damaged. A number of persons have visited the morgue to view the bodies of the two victims. Some of them thought they might be able to identify a body, but most of them were attracted there through curiosity. Eugene Curtis was permitted by the po lice to leave $5 collateral as security for his appearance to answer a charge of hav ing committed an assault on Charles F. Henderson. Today when be appeared at the Polfce Court he employed counsel and went to trial. He was convicted and to his evident surprise was fined $0. DIED. CARTER. Departed this life e unay.
