Men Burned to Death While Struggling to Escape. BEAVER, l'a., Nov. 3' 1 .—A frightful dis aster occurred nt. the government clam, two Cjtlea below the city, in which «ix men were roasted to death and several were itadiy injured. The disaster occurred at the Morrill House, a three story frame huilding used as a hotel and boarding »use to accommodate the employee*« of the new government dam which has been under course of construction for the past fear. The hotel caught fire while the meu ivere asleep. The dead are: Jerry Wreun, boss stone mason, aged OU, and his sou Dun, aged 34, af Pittsburg; John Kelly, a laborer, of Woods Run, aged 40; Robert Stanley, an engineer, of New Brighton, aged 35; Bar ney Wilkes, a stonemason, of Kast street, Alleghany, aged (it); James Hughes, an en gineer, of Chartier«, aged 33. As most of the bodies were found close together under the stairway, it is thought that the poor fellows, suffocating as they struggled to reach the usual means of es cape, had approached the stairs either sin gly or together, and they only gave up the fight for life when they found the stairway a blazing furnace. The coroner will hold the bodies until noun, and those that are not identified will l*e buried at the county's expense. There were no fire escapes, and it is pruliablo that some measures may 1» taken to punish the alleged violation of the law's requirements in the matter. I TO OUST HAYES. Mr. 1'owUcrly Is Now Vindicated and 1'lans a Revenge. Philadelphia, Nov. 22.—The finance committee of the general assembly of Knights of Labor lias made its long looked for report. The general executive commit tee was exonerated, and the order finds itself in a fair financial condition. In the report, among other things, the committee recommended that the order dispose of its political headquarters building at 8U North Broad street, this city, at the high est possible figure and erect a new but less expensive structure at some more central point. Indianapolis is one of the points suggested. in a vote taken in the assembly on the report a minute was entered fully exon erating t he grand master workman and his associates on the executive board, thus re lieving them of the stigma which Secre tary-treasurer Bayes' charges of misappro priation of relief funds implied. It was unofficially announced that at the session today all the grand offices will be declared vacant and anew election ordered. This, it is said, will be done for the pur pose of putting new men in office instead of Mr. Hayes and those of bis friends who are now holding official positions. (Brave Trainmen Rewarded. CkntRALIA, Ills., Nov. 23.— In the pres sence of OOO men Engineer Ben Young, Fireman Charles McDowell, Conductor Andrew Odum, Brakeman Fred Stacy, Ex press Messenger Cornelius Boyle and P. I. Saunders, an ex-employee, were each pre sented by officials of the Illinois Central railroad and the American Express com pany with gold medals and three shares of stock each in the Illinois Central road.

Public Pardoning Is Cruel. Charlestown, Moss., Nov. 32.— Warden Bridges of the state prison has signified to Governor Russell his disapproval of the custom o« pardoning two life convicts in the institution on Thanksgiving day. The warden believes the custom to be cruel, and he suggests that if life prisoners are to be pardoned on that day the best way would be to visit them quietly in their cells, rather than to make known their good fortune before all the other prisoners, as is the present custom. The Coghlan Affair. New Y'ork, Nov. 22.—That Rose Cogh lau has sided against her brother Charles and with his first wife is shown by the fact that Mrs. Coglilan No. 1 has found an asy lum iu Hose Cughlau's house, 47 West Ninety-sixth street, and that she is staying there with her adopted daughter. The an nouncement is also made that Charles Cogblan and Kuhne Beveridge will leave the Coghian company. Young Sterenion Married.

WILBUR IS WEAKENING. one. sist of A Proposition to the Strikers Made by Lehigh's President. OTHER ROADS MAY BE TIED UP. The rropoftiil of President Wilbur Is Met With Prompt Refusal—The Strike Ex tends to Other Divisions, and Even Mall Trains Are Not Run. Philadelphia, Nov. 32.—Through traffic on the Heading line has lieen greatly im peded by the Lehigh Valley complications. No through trainsare being run from either Buffalo or Jersey City. The employees of the I«ehigb system claim to have matters nil their owu way now. Recent intelligence from representatives all over the system in dicate a stronger f.-eiing in favor of the strike. A dispatch from Buffalo stales that 35 more men have quit, and one from J. \V. Rice at Wilkesbarre says that the men In that neighborhood are all showingastrong er front in favor of the strike. On Hie other hand, the officials of the company say that before many hours have passed they will be ready to equip Hie I ruins with full complements of men. John .1. Haiinahau stated that his advice to the Reading officials would bo to let Hie iadilgh alone in Hits light, as it may have the effect of tying up that line also. He says lie does not mean this as a threat, but the organization among Hie Rending men is just as strong as that on the Lehigh Valley. A. P. Bedford of Scranton. Hie superin tendent of the Farmers' Dairy dispatch, called on the strike committee for the pur pose of entering a protest against side tracking a train loaded with ld,0u0 quarts of milk consigned to this city. The com mittee refused to do anything for him. This circumstance and similar ones have had the effect of creating a milk famine here. Wholesale dealers were getting 10 cents a quart. President Wilbur issued the following bulletin, which is understood to bo the company's ultimatum: The Company'« I'ltlmatnm. To All Employees—To correct any misap prehension regard tug the |msitlouof the officers of this company, I would stale that they are at all times ready and willing to give patient hear ing to complaints on part of its employees or any number of them in any department. If dissatisfied with the conclusions readied by the division superintendent, the president w ill hear their eases ;uid decide. Hut wo deeline to eon fer with organized committees composed of Hie several branches of the service for the reason that we cannot know that such eoinmlttee fairly represents its employees. Engineers of course cannot fairly represent grievances of telegraphers, nor can firemen properly repre sent trainmen. The company maintains Hie right to employ men upon sudi terms as may he agreed upon, and settle all complaints only with its employees, and to discharge men for cause, with tin- rigid to appeal. hut without reference to the Judgment or action of any or ganization. AH employees who may fail to report for duty on nr before Wednesday noon will be re garded us having left the service of thecom I any, and all such will Is* paid in full as soon us the payrolls ran be made up. Men (ailing to come forward and receive their wages will re ceive no consideration in reorganizing the train service. When Hie strikers read President Wil bur's bulletin, they looked upon it as a sort of olive branch, and the grievance committee, in session at the Bingham House, was particularly jubilant over it. The members of the committee announced unofficially that they would not accept Mr. Wilbur's proposition to present their grievances in the manner suggested by him, and B. H. Clark, grand chief con ductor of the Order of Railroad Conduct ors, speaking for the committee, issued a counter bulletin of considerable length, in which be argues the entire question at is sue between the men and the company. Mr. Clark's bulletin reads in part as fol lows: An Answer to Wilbur, Had the officers of the company treated their employees w ith the same degree of considera tion accorded them by Mr. Voorhees last spring. Hie difficulty would not have come, even though the consideration afforded was infinites imally small as compared with that accorded l y the average general manager. It wus only after the employees had utterly failed to secure an audience with tiieir officials that their or ganizations were called in. 1 presume there is no question as to the right of employees to be come and remain members of the organiza tions. That right being conceded, they have a right to call upon the organizations in their trouble for such assistance as the organizations t an afford them after the efforts of the officers of the organization had failed to secure audi ence with tlie officer* of the company. The right of the company to adjust oil differences with their employees is not questioned, and it is only after they have failed to so adjnst that the organization will take any cognizance of the complaints from tlie men. Trouble Is Expected. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Nov. 22.— Colonel Kook, commander of the Ninth regiment, national guard, is a very nervous man. He says he bas trouble ahead. If his regiment is called out, ho knows what the result will be. It is safe to say that nine out of every ten men in the regiment sympathize with the strikers. In fact the whole regi ment is made up of meu who toil in mines or on railroads. Trouble is expected at the Lehigh Valley station, and Sheriff Walters has sworn in 35 deputies. Some of them are desperate looking fellows. They are all armed and under the command of Detective O'Brien. Superintendent Esser expects to get an order to move freight soon. If the strikers should interfere, then the deputy sheriffs will be called upon to protect the crews in charge of the train. As time progresses the situation becomes more critical at Port Bowkiey. Last evening all the signal lights were broken, which prevented pas senger trains from running. The act was done by boys. The strikers disclaimed all responsibility for it. Other Road« Threatened. Rochester, Nov. 22. —Only one train was moved on the Rochester division of the Lehigh Valley road. Representatives of the fii c brotherhoods—conductors, train men, engineers, firemen and telegraphers— held a meeting at the strike headquarters here, and a general order was issued, which was promptly obeyed by every employee of the Isddgh road. The order included not only the Rochester branch, but took in the Batavia and Niagara Falls branches, and on these branches it was as promptly complied with os on the Rochester division. Not a wheel is turning on any of these di visions. This completes the tieup of the road west of Sayre. The strike leaders here say that the claim that the New York Central road is not a Brotherhood road is false. They say that were an order issued to the operatives on that road similar to the one just issued the road would be absolutely crippled. They go further aud say that if the Lehigh road does not succumb within a reasonable time they will tie up the Erie, the New York Central, tlie Delaware and Locka wann« ami all of the other roads one by one. The strikers claim that Operator J. F.l Walters, at Rochester junction, is a Cana-' dian from the provinces, and that lie came thitherto work under a contract with the I.ehigh company. Should Walters per sist in remaining ut his post proceedings will lie taken against him under the United States contract labor law. Other operators row working are said to be in the same boat. Trains on the Rochester branch of the Lehigh have not been working since 5 o'clock last night. The strikers who are assembled at the depot are under police surveillance. All is quiet. A Runaway Kugln», BUFFALO, Nov. 23.—There was an ex citing time at the Dingens street crossing the Lehigh Valley railroad. A runaway engine came rushing at a high rate of speed toward the crossing. Not a soul was aboard. The engine swayed from side to side with its great momentum, and the people who saw it coming t bought it would jump the track, it ran on. however, and dashed straight toward engine No. 578, which stood on the main track. The run away engine was No. 271). It ran Into the rear of No. 573, lifted it from the track and made a complete wreck of if. No. 27» was also wrecked, and the truck was blocked. Twenty-three men from the roundhouse near by were put to work clearing away the wreck. It was «aid that the runaway engine hud come clear from Scott street and that it hud a clear road until it reached Dingens street. When full details were learned, it was ascertained that the strikers had had noth ing to do with the runaway engine. The runaway and wreck resulted from au ac cident. It of Mall Train* Abandoned.

The Kx-MinUtcr to Hawaii Arrives In Dos- | ton Almost 111, Boston, Nov. 33.— Ex-Minister John JL. Stevens of Hawaii arrived in this city and went to the home of his nephew, Elmer Stevens, at 84 Morrison street. West Som erville. On arriving last night he almost immediately retired. The strain he has been under the past few weeks has begun to tell upon his constitution, and it was a physical impossibility, it was said, (or him to receive callers. Mr. Elmer Stevens stated that his uncle had retired very much fatigued. Said Mr. Stevens to a reporter: "My uncle wished me to say to you when you arrived that be should have waited to greet you but for his exceeding fatigue. "He will outline his position on the Ha waiian question this evening in a lecture before the West Somerville Baptist church and will in a day or two have ready a reply to Mr. Blount's charges in detail." On the train Mr. Stevens entered into a conversation with an acquaintance aud talked some regarding the Hawaiian ques tion. He said he did not -regard the posi tion taken by the administration as the policy of the Democratic party, bolding that the Democratic party will be true to its historic policy, which is to be summed up in these word*, "We must have the Ha waiian islands." He stated that he was (irmly determined, no matter what others might do, nut to treat the subject from a political, much less a party standpoint. right Among Mountaineers. Greenville, S. C., Nov. 22.—A regular battle occurred in the mountains near the line between Greenville nndSpartausburg. There was a public sale, and a large num ber of the mountain people assembled.

General Rusk himself said to his phy sicians during the evening, "Boys, I'm better." Dr. Gott and Mrs. Craig, Hie general 1 » eldest daughter, remained ing Hie night.

Messages announcing the death of Gen eral Rusk were sent to ex-l'resident Har rison, members of tlie cabinet who were as sociated with him mid many other prom inent persons throughout tlie country. The funeral will occur Friday. General Husk's death was due to a com plication of disorders, the origin of which dates back several years. Nearly 10 years ago, while governor of the state, General Rusk had a first attack similar to that which prostrated him on his last bed of sickness. The physicians then decided that the troulile was disorder of the stomach. The bouse where General Rusk died has lieen the family residence for many years. Hlue books, congressional directories and biographical dictionaries give General Rusk's occupation as that of n farmer, and rightfully. He owns one of the finest (anus in Vernon county, it lies north of the village of Viraqua and is iu a high state of cultivation. The dwelling is a plain frame structure, a story and a half in height, and is painted a weather worn yel low'. Tall locust trees surround th* build ing. At one side ore large barns, gran aries and a toolhouse. The rooms of the dwelling are eight in number and are not j large or roomy, and neither are they | handsomely furnished. Exterior and in terior it has a plain, homelike look, how ever, and carries a look of solid comfort. The apartment in which General Rusk suf fered his last illness and in which he died is on the second floor and at the front of the building. The walls are low, and the furnishings are in keeping with those of the rooms in the modest home. General Harrison on Rnsk. Indianapolis, Nov. 32.— Speaking of the death of ex-Secretary Rusk, ex-Prestdent Harrison said: "The news of the death of General Husk was not only a great grief, but a great surprise to me.

He was a man of ability, and discharged every public duly that lie was ever called to with fidelity.
