resulting in the sentence of l.lerl .to six
inmitiis, I'fuud to nine months, .".nil Kane,
iiiunu to twelve niuntlus' Imprisonment.
These gentlemen are now at liberty on ball
In the sum of 8,400 mark cadi, pending
their appeal from the Judgment of the
eourt, and the case Is oxciung general
discussion. ,,
Herr Dierl especially drew upon himself
the u-r.illi of the authoritative mwers by
ridiculing the Sedan Day celebration and
the Kaiser William I. Slemorldl Church,
the Miter of which he dubbed the "Aeglr
church." and alluding" to the Emperor s
having devoted the proceeds of his recent
musical effort, the "Song of I lie Aeglr,"
to the expenses of erecting the memorial
windows ot the church, which were lately
consecrated with great ceremony.
The unusually hostile attitude of the
present court and I lie public prosecutor
toward the offending editors lias been the
subject of much public criticism.
Every dav since the conclusion of the
tri.il the Vorwaerts has contained a tirade
of denunciation directed against the pub
lic prosecutor for luting suggested lliat
Uierl sold himself to Ihe real culprits and
ri-ally contracted for a sum of money to
stand trial and berve whatever sentence
the court might impose upon him In the
Head or the actual offender. The conten
tion of Dieri's paper has been that he
"devoted himself legitimately to literature
and not to shame.
The llcrlin Post, however, printed In Its
lfsueof last evening, with theappearanceof
exactness, q statement, which it dedicates
to the Vorwaerts, asserting that Dlcrl
was formerly an obscure actor. His age,
sluy-thrce years, prevented him from con
tinuing In that profession and in order
to obtain a livelihood he avowctl himself a
Socialist and made a connection with the
Vorwaerts In the capacity or a clerk, at a
salary of 112 marks ($-8) a month. A
hurt time later upon the strength or his
contention that he was merely eating of
the bread or favor Instead of receiving the
compensation to which his service en
titled him, he was Induced as a cunsldcra
tlun for the advancement of his stipend
to sign a paper declaring hlmsclff to "be
wholly responsible for the dangerous and
editions articles which had appeared or
might thereafter appear In the paper.
For thus accepting responsibility for the
lets of others he received the miserable
Increase of 12 marks a month in his salary.
In the opinion of those who believe the
foregoing statement to be true this
renders Illcrl entirely unworthy or sym
pathy and places him In the position of
being morally as well as legally bound to
serve the sentence he volumarlly con
tracted to undergo.
The reeling ot soreness and Indignation
over the recent alarmist statements pro
mulgated upon the .alleged authority of
the St. Petersburg Messenger, has not only
not abated;, but has been considerably
aggravated by the semi-official explanation
of the matter, from which It would seem
that the-blame lies In the Russian official
telegraph agency. The Vossiche Zcilung,
Zin an article championing the cause of
the operators on the Isje-rse. who were
bit hard through transactions based upon
these statements, In plain la uguagc. charges
Uussiau officials with complicity in the
matter, and accuses certain officials in
St- Petersburg Kith having had Hie inten
tion of putting down quotations on the
Berlin boerse.
It is more likely, however, that the
matter was the result of an oversight, but
the act w-Lb culpable nevertheless. This Is
the scond occasion since Prince Lohanoff
Roslovsky was appointed Russian minister
ot foreign affairs that statements of the
gravcslimporl sent out from St. Petersburg
bave had to be dis-avowejl upou official
authority, the other occasion being the
recent Bulgarian sensation, which turned
u.t to be a canard.
Bo intense is the feeling here over these
incidents that It w Ill be a long time before
they will be- forgotten and they will tend
to Increase Ihe uistrust of Wolir's Agency,
which has lately issued various retractions
and explanations, us well as to cast sus
picion upon the "seml-orflcial" system of
promulgating important statements gener

The Tost devotes four columns to the
reports of various United States consuls
conveying the suggestion that American
breeders export horses Into Germany for
the purpose of slaughtering them. The
Post contends that live animals could not
be exported profitably and declares that If

lent here Germany wouldimpose restrictions
similar to those now In force against live
cattle and dressed beef. The proposal to
Import horses Into Germany for slaughter

in which lie gives his estimates of the

"Seuitor Brice," he remarked, "Is a

Keferring to President Oct eland, Mr.

I "Mr. Clcve-land is a mull of marked'

President like Lincoln, he would refuse to

"My idea of the President is that of a
presiding and executive officer not a
tyrant, dictator, or a meddler. The ap
plicantsror office could not see him atall.
"When I said Mr. Cleveland In a man of

daring train robberies that has ever oc
curred In the Republic of Mexico was com

national Kullroad last week, in which the
Wells Targo Express Company lost So, 000,

The train consisted of one e-oach and an

car while the messenger was absent and
threw the safe out of the car door and
then escaped. Officers were at once

assurance that an advance was probable

Four Tailors Burned in New
York Sweat Rooms.
Some nedueed To n Mass ot Charred

Human Form No Way of Telling
How Muiij- ivoplo May Have Ver
ified. New Tort, Nov. 3. The lives of four
persons were lost In a fire that totally
wrecked several sweatshops in I'clliam
eiri'et at an early hour this morning.
When it -was le-arne-el that a number of
lives had bet-n lest the Ilr.iiien Instituted
a search in the smoldering ruins that con
tinued throughout the day.
The names of those who were burned to
death are- as follows:
Jacob Shapiro. No. US West Nineteenth
street, watchman at No. 7 I'elham street,
burned to death on the third floor; body
recovered at noon to-day.
Isaacn l'enwu, No. 3-12 Cherry street,
tailor; body recovered in doorway of No. T
Pelbaiu street at 1 p. iu. to-day.
Unknown person, burned beyond ri-eogni-tlou;
body re-covered in basement of No. 7

Gouverneur Hospital at 4:30 a. m.
The position of the bonies and the hor
rible couilitlon- In w hlch they were found.
showed how terrible had been the struggle
for life aud how hopeless their flight before
the flames.
The three buildings took fire from floor
to floor as though their walls had be-en
saturates! with kerosene, and nil avenues of
escape were cut oft iu an incredibly short
No one knew bow mauy persons were In
the darkened sweat shops when the fire
started, nnd even beneath the mass of
debris, there may by lying the bodies of
homeless tailors, who bad found Insecure,
shelter lor the night within the walls of
the sweat shops.
It was broad elaj light before the reserve
engines left the scene of the fire, and at
noon Hrcmca were still playing hose mi
the smoking buildings. As they did so, the
men ot hook and ladder company No. 11"
overhauled the ruins.
The lira lienly found was that of the
unknown person whose identity had been
entirely obllte-rateil by the flames. This
body lay among the debris, a churre-dblack
masin which ihelircincnsawiio semblance
or humanity. It was thrown out of the
building into the gutter aud the men pur
sued tbelr search.
Three hours later the body of Jacob
Mflfiuo' was found on the third floor,
within a few feet of the window, whiffb.
he had evidently been struggling to re-ncli
when the flames ov.rtook awl struck him
down. A surgeon'b attention was at
tracted to a charred mass In the gutter.
After examining It care-rully he declarc-d
It a human body burred to a cinder. It
was laid on the sidewalk and later sent
to the morgue, no one claiming it.
The probability Is, the police say. that
It Is all that remains of some homeless
wanderer who had crept Into the 6weat
shop after the workers had gone.
An hour after noon a third body was
recovered from No. 7. It was that of
Isaac I'ensou, a tailor, who often slept
In the sweat shop. His son Jacob, who
lives at 312 Cherry btrect, had missed
him and was waiting in the crowd to
claim all that remained of his father.
Peuson's body was found Just within
the doorway of the building. He had evi
dently been within a few feet ot safety when
he was overcome and sunk down. His body
was the last ree-overed.
It Is the universal opinion that the fire was
the vvort the east side has seen In several
years. The locality has already a bad
lepiitatiou, which this catastrophe will
serve to c-uhan.e. The fire swept through
the buildings with a furcc which the lire
men were powerless to .heel:. Two large
double biilldiugs were totally destroyed.
Each contained nlsiut fifteen sweat shops.
In each of which there was from S300 to
$1,000 worth of stock. Of this not a
vestige remains and the buildings nre an
utter loss. They were valued at Sln.OOO
Besides the lives lost ten persons were
injured. The most serious of tho e-ases was
that of Foreman Henry Waller, who was
badly burned about the hands and face.
The topic that was most discussed in
connection with the fire to-day was Its
origin. Not the rainiest clue to that could
be discovered. If It was incendiary all
traced of lite incendiarism disappeared in
the llames,- anil there Is no prospect of the
fiend vv ho causes! the fire- being discovered.
Even the exact spot In which ir stnrted
could not be ".Kertained, so quicklj did
the names sprcud.
Nop. 7 nnd 9 I'clliam street are owned
by welland Mcjcr. The ether wrecked
building Is the property of Morns Levy,
whose address, according to the police.
Is No. 45 Pike street. Levy has been
burned out twice before within two or
three years, but nothing suspicious has
ever been discovered with regard to Uioi
fires, of which he and the Insurance com
panies have been the victims.

and is one of Gov. OTerrall's niol trusted
agents. i-V ' -. '
Immediately arter the Board of Trade con
ference wllh the governor last July he sent
for Capt. Baldwin and Instructed him to
investigate the state of affairs in Alex
andria county. Ever since the 3Isl day
of that month be has been engaged upon
the work that culminated Salunlay night
in the raid of Heath's.
Accompanied by his two brothers aud
half a dozen other trusted deputies. Capt.
Baldwin arrived in Washngton Thursday
evening. He scattered bis men among the
down lown hotels, and himself look lodg
ing at the Emrlch. The deputies wore
clothing that stamped tlii-m at once" as
farmers and mountaineers, awl everything
possible was done lo avoid giving any sus-
p.yo.. ui lutll tu.uu.
rrlday night the omy puce in me conniy
running openly and In full blast was Jack
Heath's. Thither Baldwin sent a couple
of his men, and Ihe-y managed to get a very
accurate diagram of the place, as well as
the names of the dealers and some of the
f reque-nlers. As soon lis this was obtained
Baldwin set about obtaining the proper war
rants from the Alexandria county authori
ties. Judge Chichester was seen, and he hesi
tated about sending the detective to one
of the county magistrates, fearing to trust
any of them. Finally, arter going over
them all, he sclc-cted one recently ap
pointed. Magistrate King. To htm he
addresseel a note, onle-ring him to Issue
the required warrants lo the detective
and his party.
Anticipating no trouble, Balwdln pro
ceeded Snturday afternoon to get the
documents.. After a drive to Carllu Springs
he found that the magistrate was out of
the county. He rctumul to the city and
later in the cvinlng repaired to Roslyn,
where 'Squire Burch holds forth. Bls
sanling the envelope and tearing Ihe top
off the note directing tho warrant to be
Issued, he handed it to tin squire.
That worthy official put on his glasses,
looked at it on all sides, turned It upside
down, coughed suspiciously and said:
"Why, sir, this note has no dale on
It nnd no name. That'fl singular."
"Yes, It Is." laughed Baldwin, "but
I made a memorandum on the back of
that and tore off the name, thinking it
was a blank sheet."
"Oh, is that II?" said the 'Squire, re
luctantly satisfied, and lie took up a
The detective heaved a great though
stifled sigh of relief. It vvas dark, his
men were waiting for him at the end of
the Aqueduct Bridge, and de-lay would
have been fatal. As soon as the magis
trate's signature was appended to thedocu
ment authorizing him lo raid Heath's
place, arrest the principals, and any or all
parties engaged iu gaming therein, and to
confiscate and destroy the paraphernalia,
he Jumped into a buggy at the door and
rejoined his deputies.
The men proceeded to the steamboat
wharf, where a crowd was ulready await
ing the arrival of the boat that vvas .to bear
tbcm to tho place. They mingled with
the crowd, their numbers exciting no
suspicion, and all landed at Heath's to
gether. They marched boldly Into the
barroom and upstairs.
Every man had been assigned to his post
at the different tables Indicated on the
diagram secured the night before, and they
at once took their stations. Baldwin nnd
his two brothers entered the keno room.
In the center of one side stood the three
big keno tables, and on two other sides
of the room faro and roulette were in full
blast. Assigning one of his brothers to
each of the smaller tables, Baldwin pre
pared to take care of the principal one him
self. The room was densely crowded. The

drone of the faro" dealer's voice as It
announced, "The king wins and the ace
