Quigley's Morocco Factory
Burned Down.

Big Ulnae.
The morocco factory of I. T. Quigley
on Fourth street, between Madison and
Monroe, was totally destroyed by fire
early on Sunday morning. The fire was
first discovered by the watchman, Peter
Kelly, about 3 o'clock. He ran into the
street but it appears did not send out the
alarm. Box 34 at Fourth and Madison
streets was pulled by some (person about
3.20 (o'clock and shortly after the fire
department appeared on the scene.
Alarms were sent out from
boxes 31 at Front and Searlaa streets,
and from 32 at Sixth and Tatnall streets.
The Weneacoe engine arrived at the fire
first. The horses were then sent to the
Phoenix engine house and their engine
brought to the fire. The Friendship en
f ine started up Delaware avenue for box
1. but discovered their mistake in
time.
The building was five stories high with
a basement. The upper story was a man
sard roof covered witli slate. When the
engines arrived the fiâmes were bursting
through the roof of the middle portion
of the building. They spread
amazing rapidity, and in an inrredibly
short time the whole factory was in a
blaze. The factory lielouging to J. K.
Taylor, to the eastward of Quigley's far
tory, also took fire and was destroyed.
The latter was lei s si by Mr. Quigley and
run in connection with his own factory.
The heat, of the lire wa» intense and
residents of the opposite side of Fourth
street got ont their hose and wet the
doors and blinds of their houses to keep
them from warping and scorching. The
roof Siam fell In, and the upper part of t he
Fourth street wall. A cloud of sparks
was carriod by the wind over the city,
failing in showers for some distance
away The rain of the day before and
the heavy shower shortly after midnight,
fortunately, had thoroughly soaked all
the roofs and no damage was done.
It was reported that a number of
barrels *f oil bad exploded, but the noise
was caused by the falling and breaking of
a large sheet iron smokestack. There
was'nol a half barrel of oil In the build
ing The fire burned rapidly. The well
directed efforts of the firemen saved all
adjoining property from catching, and
by 4 30 o clock it was under control.
Wit h the exception of the Weesaeoe, the
fire companies left the fire about day
break Tlie Weccacoo engine played a
stream on the ruins until about 8 o'clock
yesterday morning, after which a plug
stream was kept on until after 10 o'clock.
The origin of the fire is a mystery.
The fires under the boilers were drawn on
Saturday night and there was no other
fire in the building. The fiâmes probabh
started In the'skin room, about the miif
die of the mate building. When first
discovered they had gained such headway
that nothing could be done to cheek
them. The watchman cannot say how it
originated. It was burning at least a
half hour before I he engines arrived.
Harry Wilson, the boss finisher of t he
factory, lives on Monroe street, nearly
opposite tin* factory. He was awakened
bv cries of fire, and rushed to the factory.
He found the watchman standing by the
office door, too bewildered to know what
to do. Wilson ran through the office to
the storeroom and opened the door,
flames burst out in his faee, the
room was a furnace of fire. He retreated
and tried to reach the hand grenades but
could not see. Afterwards he carried out
some books and the drawers from a desk
in t he office. Wilson did not go off of the
first floor. Some persons say the watch
man was asleep when the tire was dis
covered.

130 feet on Fourth street and was 35 fret

the walls being left standing. TlieQulg

one of the most complete of its kind iu

The loss on buildings and machinery
can only be estimated. It is probably
something near $39.000. Tho Isrge stock

Quigley estimates the loss at over $100, -

Quigley. AU uf the machinery Is p
ably ruined. A part of the rear wall fell
on to the storehouse of J. Mahoney A Son
on Third street and damaged it
slightly. A large corrugated iron
storehouse on Uouroc street belonging to
Mr. Quigley was saved. The shutters
and windows at one end are slightly dam
»ged.
Large numbers of people visited the
ruins yesterday. One hundred and ten to
one hundred and fifteen
employed in the factory during the
past week. The usual manlier employed
is 169. About twenty-five of the
men are at work at the Pusey and Scott
Company's factory to-day, working on the
skins saved in tin-'lime vats. Mr. Quigley
intends to rebuild at once. He stated
this morning that if the insurance com
panies adjusted the losses this week he
expected to la- running ag

HARRISON'S LETTER READY.
Touching Upon the Tariff, Cl.il Sendee,
Election Fraud, and FT-lierie».
iNDIANAPOhyi, Sept 9 (N. Y. Tribune
Special).—General Harrison's letter of
acceptance will be given to the public in
the newspapers of Tuesday morning, if
he does not find to-morrow, after reading
President Cleveland's letter, that there
is more he may think it advis
able to speak about. While at
Middle Bass Island he outlined his letter
and wrote the greater part of it, but it
was only in a fragmentary shape when
he returned home, and what he had
wiitten had not been put in complete
form as a letter as late as yesterday
afternoon, although all the subjects that
he intended to comment upon had been
fully treated. It is authoritatively stated
that the tariff, Civil Service and election
methods in the South will be the subjects
that will be commented upon at the
greatest length, while the Canadian
troubles will also be given special atten
tion. In general the National platform
will, of course present the line and spirit
of his remarks, but he has endeavored to
make his expressions of views pointed
and brief. His greatest difficulty
has been in condensing satis
factorily, for it lias been ins aim to
make the letter short enough for busy
men to read tu a few minutes, and still
present to them an expression of views
fully and impressively covering all of the
questions touched upon. In preparing
the letter he has not sought nor received
the advice of any one, but he lias shown
to a few of his friends in this city some
parts of it.

Cincinnati, S«pt. 10.—The rear part of

Seventeen others were hurt, but none of them

engine of the freight and live conches of the
circus train were badly wrecked. No other
damage was done. The loss to property is
catenated at WO,000; about equally divided

More CrlUoUm from Davit).
Dublin, Sept. 10.—Michael Davitt, in a
speech at Knookaroo yesterday, said that the
cry of "Gloria Gladstone in excelsis" had
gone too far. While the Liberals remained
heedless of the atrocities attending evictions,
there could be placed no faith in the boosted
alliance of the LilieraJs and National*,
which had proved to be a handcuff instead of
a shield. Unless the Litorals did something
to insure confidence tho Irish would to com
peted te adopt unconstitutional method* in
dealing with the licensed agents of cruelty.
They must rally their force» instantly,
throughout tto world, and defend their

Tari IT Reform.
A member of the Colored Men's Politi
cal and Reform Club, recently organized
in this city, says that the organization is
not a campaign club, hut a permanent
organization to teach political ethics. It
may take part in this fail campaign and
in future campaigns, but the course of
action lias not yet been determined upon.
Tlds is its standing as a club. It 1ms
nothing to do with individual action of
its members. One of the objects of the
chib is to meet and discuss questions of
politics and political economy under the
leadership of some [arson conversant
with tlie subject.
The gentleman said that he thought

simply ponder what is told them, but
draw no conclusions, he said.
A, Worthington Brinckloy, editor of
The Peeple's Witness, is a member of the
Colored Men's Reform Club. In regard
to ids personal opinions on the political
situation, so far as it related to colored
men, he said he did not believe that col
ored people should class themselves as a
separate body of people, voting in a body.
He did not think that all colored people
hud been benefited by one political party
more than the other. That their action
ns citizens should lie dictated by their
surroundings, which differed according
to their avocation or their tesideuce in
different states, and that colored men
should vote according to their cireum
stances in which they found themselves,
so far as business is concerned. In the
South they should advocate tlie system
that benefits the most, and the North the
same, but not to advocate extreme free
trade or protection. Mr Brinckley
thinks a happy medium eon be found by
the reduction of the tariff on many
articles, which will benefit colored men',
and they should vote for the party that
proposes to do t his. Colored men should
not vote to foster monopolies.

One of the largest audiences ever in

minstrels on Saturday night. The troupe
was one of the liest that have ever visit
ed the city, and their performance,
though somewhat uneven, was very
creditable. The costumes in tlie Shakes

sett ing of the stage made a brilliant and
gorgeous scene. Tlie solos of J. P. Cur

best given. The military review was
good, also tlie act with the musical bells.
Thatcher's personal acting was poor and
Primrose's imitatioa of an English swell
lacked interest. The Byrne Brothers
