Denver,Colo., Aug. 19.^The Gumry^hotel. No. 1725 to 1737 Dawrenee street,^was wrecked by a terrific explosion at^12:10 a. m., the entire rear half of the^building, a live-story brick and stone^structure going down with a crash.^The hotel was crowded with guesis and^many of them must have been killed,^as well as the entire force of hotel em^^ployes, who were sleeping In that por^^tion of the building at the time. On^both sides of Lawrence street from^Seventeenth to Eighteenth streets, and^on Lawrence street directly back of^the Gumry house, the plate-glass win^^dows of the business houses wero^blown In and a number of pedestrians^were Injured by falling glass. Tho^fronts of many building.^ in the vicinity^were badly wrecked. Thehotel structure (M 100 feet along^the alley and extending for 7a feet to^^ward the front, Is merely a mass of de^^bris. Biick and plaster are piled In a^heap 20 feet high, and from this mass^of wreckage can be heard the moans^of the Injured and flying. At12:35, five Injured people had been^taken out. They were all Inmates of^rhe upper story and sank down with^the floors, escaping more fortunately^than those below, who are still burled^In the ruins. Thefiremen are working like beavers^digging Into the debris, but are making^little progress. The remaining portion^of the building from which the guests^are being removed by ladders as fast^as possible, Is expected to fall any mo^^ment, and precautions to avert further^loss of life adds to the difficulty In^reaching the dead and Injured. By^some estimates, 40 persons were in tho^portion of the hotel destroyed, nearly^all of whom must be dead. It will bo^morning before a corect list can be ob^^tained. Thecause of the explosion Is uncer^^tain, but It Is supposed that the bat^^tery of boilers in the hotel basement^must have exploded. The sound of the^explosion was heard throughout tho^city, awakening people In bed a mile^from the scene. A cloud of dust was^thrown a thousand feet Into the air,^and as there Is not a breath of air^stirring, it still hangs in the air like a^huge column. -Minute atoms of pow^^dered brick and mortar are descending^like gentle snow many blocks away. At12:50 the ruins are burning fierce^^ly and the firemen have been obliged^to retreat from the work of rescue.^Every engine In the city is pouring^water Into the eeethlng mass, but the^flames cannot possibly be gotten under^control before many of the Injured^shall have been cremated. Astheir chances of escape lessen,^the cries of Imprisoned people are in^^creasing, heartrending shrieks rising^from every portion of the great mass^of wreckage. Fears are now enter^^tained that the front portion of the^building, which seems to be tottering,^will fall and bury the firemen at their^work. Duringthe height of the excitement^a hos'e team ran away on Eighteenth^street, stampeding the great crowd of^spectators. A number of people were^more or less Injured by being trampled^upon and by falling in the broken glass^which covers the streets and sidewalks^In every direction. Electric light wires^dangling from broken poles in the alley^adder frssfa peril to the firemen. One^horse was killed by coming In contact^with a live wire. Two injured men^had almost been extricated from the^ruins when the flames approached so^close that the rescuers had to abandon^them for i'helr own safety. Both voices^have now been silenced, fire completing^the work commenced by the explosion.^The bodies of three women are also to^be seen In the back part of the building^but cannot be reached. At1:39 the flames are still keeping^the firemen back from the work of^rescue, except Just a^, the line of the^alley wall. Of those pinioned beneath^the debris. onlj| two are now thought^to be alive, both men from the fifth^floor, who are still lying on their beds.^Both are covered several feet deep ex^^cept about their heads, and can hardly^survive another half hour. Almost no^progress is being made In relieving^them, as the smoke Is blinding. The^flames arc only kept hack fr ira their^bodies by half s doxen streams of^water. Thus far six persons have teen^taken from the ruins, all Ltdly In^^jured. In addition four were levtrely^cut by glass falling into the street. Apiece of the cornice of the Chees-^nian olock at 17th and Larimer streets,^fully a block from the Gumry hotel,^was torn out. fell to the street, nar^^rowly missing several passers-by. The fragmentweighed at least a ton. In^the wrecked hotel there was a tier of^five or six rooms extending across the^rear of the building, facing the alley,^on each of the three upper floors. All^of these rooms are believed to have^been occupied, as people residing In^rooms directly across the alley ob^^served lights burning In every window^during the evening. Amongthe dead are Peter Gumry^and it C. Greiner. the two proprietors^of the hotel, the day clerk and the^night elej-k. none of whom have been^found. Immediately after the explosion^occurred, a young bay was heard^walling 1n the corner of a room which^had nearly all fallen away. Its parents^had been carried down to death with^the first crash. Soon after, the little^one's cries became weaker and weaker^and later, when the flames shot up In^^to the skeleton of the building, becama^entirely silenced. The firemen made a^brave effort to save a woman caught In^the debris at the north corner of the^hotel, but were forced to abandon the^attempt. The spot where she lay was^now the hotest part of the fire. Noneof the six people thus far taken^out are conscious and Identification Is^Impossible. The force of the explosion^carried away a large portion of the^rear of the building next adjoining the^Gumry toward Seventeenth street, and^occupied by A. Ltllyblade's wholesale^and retail furniture. The wall of ths^Gumry, on the side toward Kighteenth^street, crushed a stable and a small^frame house but no one was injured. TheGumry hotel was a five-story^brick structure with a stone front and^was erected about six years ago. It^was of the better kind of second-class^hotels, catering largely to transient^family patronage. Thus many ladles |^and children were among the guests.^The building was ere-ted as the Eden^Muse* by the widow of Gen. Tom^Thumb, and was so occupied for about^a year, being later remodeled for use^as a hotel. Gumry and Gretner have^owned It for several years. Mr. Gumry^was a prominent contractor, and had^mur^i of the work during the erection^of the state capital. Mr. Greiner acted^In the capacity of manager. Both arc^umong the dead.

TheBewildered AnlniiU I.ured to Their^Death by the I'mv Huntresses^^Hklrts Hlsrardrit. IAttica, O., Aug. IS.^A night visit to^tho swamps and marshes around Atti^^ca reveals strange sights. Frog hunt^^ing lias become a fad among the young^people, and the girls have entered Into^the sport with as much zest as the^boys. When they first began the sport^the girls pu't on rubber boots, gathered^their skirts under their arms, took a^torch In one hand and a spear In tho ;o^her, and bravely waded Into ths :marshes. 1But skirts proved an Intolerable^nuisance. Hunting was done at night,^with nothing but the frogs and stars Ito see them, and they always went^In companies escorted by their own or^somebody else's brothers. What was Ithe harm If they dldn t wear skirts^^Reasoning thus, each fair huntress^provided herself with a pair of trou^^sers, got them in the regulation Way,^built an upper story to her attire with^a shirt waist, tucked her breeches Into^the tops of her rubber boots and went^out to seek and to s'.ay the festive bull^^frog. Well, the frogs became a mark^for those girls at once, and they easily^distanced the boys In the amount of^game taken. Now the swamps are filled^nightly with hunting parties, and^prominent among them are the panta-^looned girls. CUBANS IN M X CO. Berlin.Aug. IS.^There has been^splendid weather t.,-day. which Is the^Mta anniversary of the battle of Orave-^lotte. which had so decisive an Influ^^ence on the Fran -Prussian war. The^anniversary was signalized here by the^laying of the foumlailou stone of the^monument to the lite Emperor Wil^^liam I., by bis grandson, William II.,^In the presence of many German sov^^ereigns and other dignitaries. Theproceedings opened at S o'clock^this morning. The colors and stand^^ards of the various regiments, crowned^with oak loaves, were brought 011 the^ground, and a richly decorated Impe^^rial standard displayed In the center^of the group. At ^ a clock I flourish of^trumpets announced the arrival of Em^^peror William, who was received by-^Chancellor Von Hohenluhe. The em^^peror deposited under the foundation^stone of rhe monument to his grand^^father a memorial document In which^he referred to the enthusiastic uprising^of the German nation under his grand^^father. Emperor William, the Great,^who had restored the Germans to their^ardently-desired unity, and had suc^^ceeded In securing for the newly-arisen^empire Its proper weight In the system^of states. The emperor read^from the document 10 be deposit^^ed In the foundation stone;^^The self-sacrificing record of the Ger^^man princes, the wise counsel and en^^ergetic support of Von Bismarck, the^consummate strategy and genius of^Von Moltke, the unequalled courage^and ability of the commanders of ths^army, and. before, all, Crown Frlnce^Frederick William, the devoted fidelity^of Field Marshal Von Roon and the^discipline of the people, rendered suc^^cess certain. But also In the direction^of works of peace, the emperor was un^^tiring to his last breath in active furth^^erance of the welfare of the working^classes. The statue of William the^Great should form a testimony of the^Inextinguishable gratitude of the prin^^ces and people of Germany. Atthis point Count Von Lerchfeld,^Uhe Bavarian envoy plenipotentiary,^handed Emperor William a trowel, re^^questing that his majesty would lay^the foundation of a memorial which^would remind Germany of the greatest^period of her history, and which the^entire nation desired to erect to the^founder of tho German empire. After^the emperor had spread the cement on^tlhe stone, Baron Von BueJ-Berendberg,^president of the relchstag. gave his^majesty a mallet, at the same time de^^claring that the memorial would be ^^bronze monument of Inextinguishable^gratitude of the nation. Emperor Wil^^liam then tapped the stone thrice say^^ing: ^In memory of the fallen; In^recognition of the living, and for the^emulation of the future generations.''^The Imperial and royal personages^present, beginning with the crown^prince, Frederick Wllhclm, and the^Grand Duke of lladen, then tapped Mm^stone In succession, while a salute of^101 guns was fired and the band played.^The whole ceremony was most brilliant^and all who witnessed It wero deeply^Impressed.

Dr. J.^Endlcott, I) D., who was delegated by^the American and Canadian missionar^^ies to Investigate and repor% upon the^Cheng Tu riots In the Szechuan prov^^ince. Dr. Endlcott's conclusions are^briefly as follows: ^The history of^riots does not encourage us to hope^fnr much in the way of discovering th^^real origin of these, but the conelusrton^Is forced upon us that the highest offi^^cials were desirous that a riot should^take place. The officials had ample^power In their hands to qu^ll the riot nt^Its very beginning, for there was an^abundance of soldiers, arms and am^^munition at Cheng Tu. Had the offi^^cials been friendly, some of these forces^would have be.-^n quickly utilized to^quell the disturbances. The viceroy M^directly responsible for the riots. He^Is known to he anti-foreign. Thereport states that a crlsu has^been reached In missionary occupa^^tions: that foreign nstions should^change their policy and give mandarins^to understand that 'they must treat^American. British and other foreign^subjects with respect and afford them^protection; that unless this la done th^^future outlook before the missionaries^who labor In the interior of China will^be dark Indeed.
