What la left of the gullded statue of Oolumblu, near tbe eastern end of tho oourt of honor, the central joiut of interest for thousands of visitors to the exposition lnstsum- mer, to-night took out upon waste of mini and untie. The tlx large structures whloh formed tbe boundaries of too apart of honor were dostroyad by an Incendiary fire early to-ulgut. The buildings destroyed were tbe Terminal statlon.Admlnlstratlou.Manu faoturea, Electricity and Mining build' lngs, Machinery hall and the Agriculture truuture. Tbe Art gallery, which has been re- obrlsteued tbe Field ColumDiau ma seum, and tbe Government buildings were saved together with the minor buildiugs south of Machinery ball and the Agricultural building. Tbe lire started almost simultaneous, ly at three points; so selected as to af ford tbe best possible opportunity for tbe spread of tbe flames. In each of these places, on the second floor of the Terminal station, the southwest corner of the Mechanical Arts building; and on the southeast corner of the Manufac- tures building, a man was seen running away from tbe grounds by passers-by or members of tbe gangs of wreckers who are at work tearing down the .buildings, just before the Are broke out. . One man was killed and one injured during the progress of the fire. At 8:25 the roof of the Immense Man Ufactures building fell In with a re- sounding crash that was heard for blocks. . The Mining and Electricity bulld'ngB are connected by a spacious subway, ueed last summer as a conduit for the intricate system of electric wires that connected tbe various buildings. group of spectators were standing di' rectly oyer this tunnel at about 7:30, when its roof caved in, and two men, Edward Anderson and Edward J. Bas etf, were precipitated into the fiery lurnaoe below. Anderson, who was em' ployed as a bookkeeper by Marshal, Feld & Co., was burned to death. Bas. sett was rescued by a policeman, but he was severely burned about the limbs and the lower part of the body. By,!10:30 the flames had spread from 'the Mechanical Arts building across ,the -Grand Canal to Agricultural hall and that building was doomed. The firemen Were prevented from drawing v water troaa-.tha take . by- the Intense Heat from tha .Agricultural and Manu factures' buildings. The Court of Honor was almost ': entirely encircled' by roaring mass of -flames. The firemen had some time before abandoned all efforts to save any- of the six big buildings to which the fire had spread and directed, their attention to saving ithe Government building and Transpor tation building. 4-. -, At midnight engine No. 19 and five of the crew are missing, and it is reported iney nave Deen burned to death. Hook and Ladder No. 18 and all the members of the company are also miss ing. The people who had come from dis tant parts to view the grand scene and bad taken positions on the movable sidewalk, which extends into the lake oft -the Casino and Peristyle, had a narrow escape from being burned to death or- choosing death by drowning. When the Are caught in that direction they stayed too long and finally had to be rescued from their perilous position by boats. Five thousand dollars' worth of books and papers bought at the fair by D. C. McClenaby of Chicago and store in the Philadelphia oafe, were destroyed in the -burning of the cafe. . The total territory burned over was eighty acres. : Mills Rasume Work. Pittsburg, July 5. All of the Labelle Iron mhls, at Wheeling, W.

"What program could tbe republicans haver asked Mr. Reed in reply. "We are only nominally members of the ways and means committee. We have never been consulted regarding the formation of the bill. We have had nothing to do with It. I presuppose the work that will be done from this time on will be on the back stairs, as was formerly the case. The republican members of tbe committee will not know what Is going on till the demo crats have decided upon their plan of action. Some of the democratic mem bers of the house say provisions of dissatisfied with certain provisions of the bill; but they lack both the pluck and steadfastness of purpose necessary to carry out their opposition." This was apparently all that Mr. Reed cared to say regarding the bill, Inasmuch as al questions relating to the measure, for the present at least. are a matter of speculation.' From his remarks, however, it was obvious that he believes that the bill -as it passed the senate will be the one to which the bouse will substantially agree. Strong pressure is being brought to bear upon the democratic members of the ways and means committee to agree In conference to the changes made in the tariff bill by the senate, exempting beneficial and mutual aid societies from the operations of the Income tax. Hundreds of petitions bearing upon the subject have been already received by Chairman Wilson. Death of Almlra J. Cowles. Mrs. Almlra J. Cowles died at Asbury park, N. J., July '4.

The statement was made to-day that the New England sorganization committee, or friends in its interest, took $880,000 of the $500, 000 8 per cent, reoeivers' certificates, authorized by the oourt. This money goes to pay the ooupon on the first mortgage bonds which was due January 1884. Provision for this interest had to be made, as the holders of the first mortgage are entitled to foreclose six months after default, which was July 1. It is evident from the fact that the re organization committee has taken these certificates that they were issued in the interests of the reorganization, and that the plan, when It becomes operative, will provide to take them up. The certificates are not dated, but are issued in the form of a temporary certificate, which, it is said, is subject to call of the reorganization oommit tee. Liberated by the Emperor's Order.

The president, Secretary Lamont, Attorney Genoral Olney, Postmaster General Bissell and yenerai Sohofleld remained at tshe White House until nearly midnight. Many telegrams were received and sent during the course of the evening. When the conference broke up Secre tary Lamont announced that there was nothing to make pubiio except the tele gram from Governor Altgeldt and the presidents response thereto. Governor Altgeldt's telegram protests against tne presence of United States troops In Chicago. The president's reply follows: 'Federal troops were sent to Chicago in strict accordance with the consti tution and laws of the United States upon the demand of the postofflce" de partment that obstruction of ,the- malls snouia De removed, ana upon the ren- resentations of the Judicial Officials of the United States that process of the federal courts could not be executed through the ordinary means, and UDon abundant proof that conspiracy existed against commerce between the states.

The law has been thoroughly executed and 'every man guilty of violating it during the strike has been brought to justice.! v v "At present some of our railroads are paralyzed not by reason of obstructions, but because they cannot get men- to operate their trains.

It was at lust oonl rolled, however, und many of the bales were thrown out of the barn and the wuter turnod on them. There were about eighteen horses aud several carriages and wagons of various de scriptions in Mr. Cullom's barn, which were gotten out without any dnmuge. The Consumers' Ice company were not so fortunate. They had about twenty-five horses stabled in their barn, and five more in a small shed Unit stood between Mr. Cullom's and their hnru and belonged to Mr. Cullora. It is here that the fire originated aud It is sup posed it wns from a spark dropped by some of the teumsters when they were puttiug up their teams.

Rosenburg & Koon occupied the front part of Mr. Cullom's building with a maccaronl manufactory. They were damaged by -water to the extent of $2,000, which is covered by insurance. Mr. Cullom places his loss at $5,000, which is partially covered by insur ance. Tne consumers ice company s loss is about $3,000, which is also covered by Insurance. This makes the total loss approximately $10,000. 40 The building was formerly used as a carriage manufactory by Mr. Cullom, but had been used as a livery stable for several years past. A tenement house near the Consum ers barn, whlcn is occupied Dy Mrs, Ahearn, was scorched and all the fur niture was moved out. John East of steamer 4 was caught between the timbers and badly bruised. He was taken to a house across the street, where he soon recovered and was able to go to his home. chief Kennedy's injubies. During the progress of the fire Chief Kennedy, while blinded by the smoke, stepped backward through an open door on the second floor of the building Into the elevator shaft and fell to the ground floor, a distance of about twenty feet. He was picked up and carried into a house on the opposite side of the sti!et, where Dr. Brockett was sum moned. He retained consciousness throughout, although suffering great pain, and desired to be taken to the hos pital. The police ambulance was summon ed and the injured chief taken to the hospital. Dr. W. W. Hawkes was Im mediately called and after giving the patient a thorough examination decided that three ribs had been fractured and that he was also suffering from a severe shock to his system. It is believed that he will be able to be around again In a few weeks. Chief Kennedy has been chief of the flr department for a little over two years. Prior to that time he had been f6r about eighteen yours fire marshal, and before that wan for a short time janitor of the city hall.

To-duy they roached $2,233,482, tha highest llguru for any duy since the In come days of the war.

The stuted treasury balances show! the effect of this stimulus from Internal revenue sources, being to-day $U9,0?ft 323, of which $64,712,735 is In gold.

A SVOQEHVIOX OB TWO Slado Yesterday by a Number of Well Known Business Men. V A number of our most prominent citizens in talking about the big fire at the City market yesterday made the suggestion that the railroad auhoritles In rebuilding there erect a comfortable sub-passenger station In place of the old market.
