At y.su o'clock yesteidny morning an alarm of lire was sent In from box 2C, at the eornei ot Washington nnd Lackuwunmi avenues. When the teutrul city companies responded their attention was direeted to the quarters of the Union Manufacturing company's Hilrt and overall factory, which Is located on the thin floor of the old Monies ami I'ur.li building. The blaze did but slight dnmage and was caused by a pile nf refuse paper becoming Ig nited In the rear of the plant. The most exciting feature of the af fair was the panic stricken condition of tlm thirty-live young women Mho are employed about tho establishment. When the volumes of smoke tilled the large loom tho cries of "lire" were made Mith a. vim. A desperate' dash was made for the elevator, which la operated by hand. Fifteen of the girls got nboaid, but It came to a stop within a few feet M-hlle between floors. Hy the uso of ladders the young woin en weie removed. BODY NOT IDENTIFIED.

The Referee, the Court of First Instance nnd the Supremo Court Reach the Same Final Decision, but by Different Routes Justice Dean's Findings. I I'ruthonotnry Copelnnd yesterday r- oll of , ,,, Simifme court In Pitts- burc The enso Is peculiar from this fact, that although the referee's finding of facts on the main uucstlon at lssiio Mat. te versed by the local court and ! the local com I'm decision reversed by ' the Supreme court, nil three ilerlaliuis were alike In faor of the plalntl'f. . .Mr. Tot icy, who Mas the referee, d?- elded that the Chamberlain company ; was solvent and found for the Klnch compiinj. JudKe Archbald decided that ! the company Mas Insolvent, but that the allegation of fruud was not sus- talncd and found In favor of the Finch ' eoiiip.uiy. Justice Dean decides that If the company was Insolvent the nl- leRatlon of fraud was well foundtd, but holds that the insolvencv Ma.i not proven and that the Finch company .ilrl.rol.-, ,. . CAUSK OK THE SHIT. Tills is a, suit over the possession of two engines, boilcts, connections nnd pulleys that were levied upon .bv the sheriff as the property of the Cham berlain coal company nt the instance of the Sterling company. The Finch .Manufacturing company claimed the property by purchase. The Chamber lain company owed the Finch com pany n book nceouiit of $10,000. The Finch company offered to buy the ma chlnery for Its real vnlue, $2,100. an 1 credit It on the $10,000 account The Chamberlain company accepted the of fer and later deliveied the goods to the Finch company In Scinnton. The Stcillng company opposed this claim with the allegation that I. A. Finch, being president, director and stockholder, of both the Chamberlain i.nd Finch companies the sale Mas Ir regular, lie being aware, it was claim id, that the Chamberlain company was Insolvent and by reason of this knowl edge took nn advantage that was pro Judicial to the other i redltors. In response to this Mr. Finch livened that the Chambeilaln Coal company was not insolvent nt the time of the sale and further that he did not vote on the s.il at the meeting of the Chamberlah' company's stockholders. The case was referred to James II. Toriey. as teferee, and he found that the coul company was not Insolvent nt the date of the sale and thnt the sale was not made In contemplation of fiitut-'- Insolvency. On exception, however, the local court teversed the refie at this point, but adopted his general finding In favor of the Finch company that "while It was presump tively a fraudulent preference, the pre sumption is icbutted by the facts, that the preference was In no wny secured by solicitation or by the Intlueuce of Finch. I.OWi:i! COITK"," RKVintSED. The supreme court now teverses Hip local court's reversal of the referee. Justice Dean holds that if the coal company was Insolvent, as the local court declnied, the sale could not have been otherwise than void, as Finch, from his prominence In the conl company, presumably knew of Its insolvency, and his refusul 1o vote on the sale would not lebut the Infeience of fraud ulent preference In uceceptlng the referee's (hidings as to the company's solvency at the time ot the sale, Justice Dean says; "At the date of. the tiansactlon tho company had expended more than$3,"0, 000 In Improvements; had really paid in advance, royalties to the amount of S3,000; it had valuable leases, the organization was new and from the very beginning the coal trade had been in such a state of depression that It had conducted a losing business; It had given nn option for the purchase I of the entire plant nt the price of $4S7, I .".00, which did not expire until Jnnu- uty 1 following; u sale, at this ilgure, would have paid all tho ill bts and sav ed a very consldeiablo value to the stock. Although hammered by debts. It did not follow that the company M-as insolvent. The referee bus found as a fact, on sufllcient evidence, that the company was not Insolvent at the date of the snle ot this property, and that the sale was not made In con templation of Insolvency, it is not apparent to us that tho finding is man ifestly wrong. The fact sustains the decree and It Is afllrmed." Judge Archbald, upon receipt of tha decision, made an order directing tho sheriff to turn over to the Finch Manu facturing company the $1,200.08 that was derived from tin; sheriff's sale of the machinery.

V dritee In dlvoico was granted In the rase of 1211a I. Winton against Walter M. Winton. In the ense of L. B. Thompson against Josephine Mott. Judge Arch bald handed down the following opin ion and older: "To defeat the use of the judgment held by the defendant, as an offset to that of tho plaintiff, Mr. Drown, the plaintiff's attorney, pioiluces an assignment to himself, bearing date of June 9, the day the plaintiff received a verdict. This Mas recorded at once and it taken In good faith and for value, is ,i bar to the present proceedings But upon this point we need pi oof. On the face of things an assignment by a party to lils attorney la almost an assignment to hlms-elf and affords fucli opportu nity for collusion that It ought to bo shown to be a straightforward trans action by evidence. Without this we are not inclined to allow It to defeat such an offset cs is asked for hero. "Lt the case stand over for fur ther pi oof."

" e had no grievance to consider; nothing to do In fact but elect ofll cers," was the statement made last night by F, J. May, chairman of the Joint Protective Board of the Brother hood of Firemen of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western system. The board which was In annual ses sion In this city concluded Its work yesterday afternoon nnd adjourned. The officers chosen vvete: F. J. May, of Hallstead, chairman; Thomas Gib bons, of Syracuse, N. Y vice chalr manand W. O. Smith, of Elmira, sec retary and treasurer. Others who at tended the meeting were: A. J.

With refer ence to the mcetlni; Mr. May said lust night: "Our constitution and by-laws re quire that vie meet annually and the meeting just ended was the regular, annual event. At this meeting It Is customary to consider any grievances that may have cropped up. This year everything Is harmonious; there are no wrongs that requite righting. "We take no little pride In tho man agement of the Delawure, Lackawanna and Western company, by wnom the men ot our brothet hoods ore employ ed. There lo a disposition to treat a man fairly and If he has a grievance he Is accorded a fair Hearing, some thing ' short-sighted railroad men think a bad thing to do. The harmony and good feeling that exists between the men nnd oillclals of the company we nro employed by, shows that when you respect a mun and treat him as a man there Is small danger of having much trouble with him. It Is tho dis contented, Ill-treated mun that Is a thorn in the side ot the employer. "Besides showing a disposition to treat men fairly the management of the Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern company stands at the head of the list In the matter of providing for the safety of Its workmen. Ninety-eight per cent, of the rolling stock of that company is provided with automatic couplers, as against un uverago of 33 per cent, used by other railroad com panies." WISE AND OTHERWISE.
