VOL. XXIX. FURIOUS FLAMES. A Hospital 011 Fire in New York. EXCITING SCENES ENSUE. Malonc, N. V., Experiences a Costly Conflagration—The Hydrants Frozen. I Associated Press Dispatches to thoHERALD] New York, January 29, — In the hospital for ruptured and crippled at Lexington avenue and 42nd street, there are 163 crippled children under treatment. This evening the younger children were in bed, and the others were preparing to retire. Two of the older children started upstairs to go to bed and on reaching the second floor they were suddenly enveloped in clouds of smoke. They hurried as rapidly as possible to the third floor, and found the nurse and told her that the building was on Are. The alarm was sent out as rapidly as possible, and the doctor, nurse and police, as well as a number of citizens and firemen, carried all the children from the burning buil - ing. When the fire had been ex tinguished the lifeless body of Mary Donnelly, cook in the hospital, was found in her room on the fifth floor, where she had died from suffocation. Ten year old Max Schwartz, who is suffering from hip disease, tried to carry out John A. Burke, a little deaf and dumb cripple, but the boy was too heavy. He then dragged him out to the hallway, where he met a policeman who carried both boys down. During the fire Michael McCarthy, an elevator boy, was over come by the smoke and fell into the elevator pit. He was discovered there by Jessio Stranger, a young waitress in the hospital, who dragged him out into the air whore he revived. v vi i it 111:11,1 wahi i:d. A Fierce I'onl I air ratio a at malnuc, N. V. Utica, N. V., January 29.—Mai one, Franklin county, was visited by a ter rible fire this morning which was first discovered in the crockery store of Mc- Fuller, situated in the Empire or How ard House block, and was soon under full headway. Owing to the hydra* ts being frozen no water could be ob tained from them, and a long delay was caused from the fact that connec tions had to be made at the river and ■the water forced up by steamers. Meanwhile the fire had completely gutted the above store and communi cated to the Howard House, and was under good headway when the water was ready to pour on the flames. Dur ing the burning of the house an ex plosion, presumably of gas, occurred, blowing out portions of a brick wall and killing Isaac Chester, a promi nent business man of Malone.who was coming out of the bank, and injuring several others. The whole Empire block, including the hotel and opera-house, and all the stores in the block, were completely destroyed. The following is A LIST OF TUB LOSERS : Frank Tollman, proprietor of the Howard House; Ferguson ci Merritt, proprietors of the opera house; G. M. Shaun, hardware; (3. H. Brown, car riages ;M. 0.

Mundhauk attempted to turn around but another man grabbed his hands and held them un til the money was removed, wh: h was done in an instant. Tho men then disappeared in the crowd, and were out of the house before the alarm could be given. The $890 was the savings of Mundhauk, his brother and sister, and with the money they intended soon to start a bakery at Watsonville.

San Francisco, January 29. —Alex- aider Black, once a wealthy merchant of Stockton, committed suicide at the Brooklyn hotel this afternoon by shooting himself in the forehead. Sickness and discouragement is sup posed to be the cause of the deed. The issue is ' a simple question of whether we are to have a govern ment for the many, according to Dem ocratic principles, or whether it is to be a government of a favored few, ac cording to the Republican idea. . It ought not to take a workingmau long to make up his mind on which side of this question he will align himself. —[St.Paul Globe, Dem.

JANUARY 30, 1888. THREE TO ONE. An Attack Made on a City Editor. REVOLVERS TO THE FRONT. Aa Exciting Scuffle Ensues—One of tho Combatants Injured Fatally. I Associated Press Dispatches to the HjBBALD] Knoxville, January 29.—A shoot ing affray occurred here this morning in front of St John's Episcopal Church, which resulted in the wound ing of three men, one of them fatally. As James F. Rule, city editor of the Knoxville Journal was entering the church accompanied by his wife, he was accosted by three men who wanted to spaek with him. He walked to tho opposite side of the street with them, where all four stood talking some minutes. The three men were Johu West, Wm West and a friend of theirs named Goodman. They attacked Rule on acco nt of a communication which appeared in the Morning Jour nal reflecting upon Dr. T. A. West, City Physician and father of John and Wm. West. Rule refused to give the name of the author of the communi cation or to make any satisfactory an swer to the questions. West struck Rule and attempted to bear him to the ground and RULE DREW A REVOLVER and shot John West through the body. William West immediately fired on Rule, the ball passing through Rule's wrist. John West then cut Rule in the back seven times, and William West placed his revo'ver at Rule's forehead and fired. Rule knocked the pistol up receiving only a scalp wound. Rule then fired two more shots, one of them taking effect in the sh mlder of Goodman, who seemed to bo at tempting to separate the combat ants. A number of men rushed from the church and stopped the fight. William West ran away uninjured. Rule was able to get up and walk to the church, but John West was car ried home in a dying condition. Rule's injuries are not dangerous, and Go d mao is not seriously wounded. Rule's wife, who had entered the church, knew nothing of the difficulty, till all was over, tho organ drowning the noise of the pistol shots. CAUSE OF THE AFFAIR The circumstance which called out the newspaper article was the elec tion yesterday of Dr. T. A. West as city physician by the City Council. West is not a graduate of tne medical college, and the Council had repealed the ordinance for the purpose of mak ing him eligible. This act aroused the indignation of the regular phy sicians of the city and was denounced by the Medical Society. Tho article which caused the-J)loody affray was written by a physician, and contained very severe reflections upon Dr. West ami the City Council. William West baa been arrested. 1 'IPOKTANT PUOCIiIOUIXiS. two Suits Filed Against tbe 1 ves-Stuj nor Party. Cleveland, January 29.—The pa pers in two important suits, growing uut of the collapse of Ives, Stayuor and Company, were filed in the com mon pleas court yesterday; the plain tiff in each case is J. 11. Wade, trus ■ee for a number of persons here and elsewhere. The first suit, a bill of equity was filed against Henry S. Ives, George tl. Staynor and Thomas Doremus, of the firm oi Ives, Stayßor & Co., aud William Nelson Cromwell, their assignee for the recovery ot $700, --000 wor hof collateral stock of the Cincinnati, Wabash & Michigan Rail road Company, In October, 1880, Wade sold to Ives, Staynor & Co., 12.022 shares of the stock of this com pany, giving that firm the controlling interest. Three notes were given in pa.t men! and the stock was hypothe cated. The action is to recover the stock. THE SECOND SUIT Grows out of the same deal and la against the same defendants with the addition of John J. Shepherd, the Cleveland broker of Ives Staynor & Co. One of the notes triven to Wade became due on June ,23rd, 1887, and to pay it, Ives, Stay nor & Co. drew drafts on Shepherd. ach draft was for $20,000, oue being made payable in ten days and the other in twenty days. These drafts were secured by 800 shares of Cincin nati, Hamilton and Dayton preferred stock, but before the maturity of the drafts Ives, Staynor & Co. went into insolvency, and suit was brought to recover tho value of the drafts. IRIICI "01.0 VIRUINNI.i' The Oliver-Walker li ml disas trous Lynching; Affuir. Chicago, January 20. — A letter received from John Martin, of Rowen county, Virginia, relative to the Oli ver feud, says that in a row at Mr. Neil Walker's, near Moorhead, on January 24, three men were seriously wounded. James Martin during the evening attempted to kiss Miss Walker, and she resented fiercely. In the melee, lamps were overturned, and during the darkness several shots were fired. When a light was brought John Walker was found shot through the left lung, Pete Williams through the neck, and Ned Lawlor in the abdomen. LYNCHED THE WRONG MAN. The same letter says that a nine year-old daughter of Samuel Carter, a well-to-do farmer of Rowen county, was outraged on the morning of .Jan uary 21st by an unknown negro. Bob Venders, of the neighborhood, was suspected and a number of farmers went to his cabin and hanged him to a beam above his door. Just as Ven ders was in the throes of death, word was brought that not he but John Hooper was guilty, and Venders was cut down. Strung; to a Tree.

It is not necessary for us to explain all the tiresome details of how we be came possessed of a little advertising card issued by Mr. Warren P. Leland, of i his city, in the year 1899. It is enough to reproduce some of the features of the card: "In addition to the other accommo dations furnished at my hotel I have, in the office, a fountain fed by an ai tesian well under the house. The merits of this well are too numerous to mention. The brief space of this card confines me to only a few of the conveniences furnished by this won derful well. They are as follows: "1. It affords a bountiful supply of mineral water, which lias been found to possess such medicinal qualities that no disease can withstand it. It is pionouuced by scientists the very fountain of eternal youth that the late Mr. P. D. Leon failed to find. "2. It furnishes a superior quality of natural gas which, when used as an illuminant, can not be blown out even by gentlemen from St. Louis; and, when used for culinary purposes, impaits a delicious flavor to the viands. "3. It pours forth a rich black ink which does not gum, and yet is black wiien put upon the paper. This ink does not corrode stvel pens. It will be a great boon to the traveling pub lic to know that in the writing room of one i.ovel in the world there are good pens and ink. "4. It spurtß up a pleasing aro matic spray which keeps my clerks good-natured and ever ready politely to tell my patrons when the next train goes out, how far it goos, how much it costs, who is the conductor, and how much salary thobrakeman gets. "5. It juts up a column of natural steam from the bowels of the earth, and furnishes power to keep the ele vator going all night. This steam also supplies each room with Turkish bath conveniences, and blows an alarm whistle which is set by the lodger himself, and can not be so meddled with by the night clerk as to cause a nation to miss his train. "In addition to furnishing these conveniences this wonderful well bub bles up a steady stream of very active and intelligent call-boys, porters, chambermaids and table-waiters. As these all come in an inexhaustible volume from the earth, they are fur nished gratis to any patron, aud are a great improvement over those com monly-employed mechanical arrange ments into which one has to drop a coin before they will weigh him or bring him his breakfast or fetch itim a towel. "N. B.—The proprietor has engaged the services of Prof. Claptrap, the il lustrious geologist aud chemist, who is now engaged with a witchhazel prong locating an oyster-bed and a vein of pure cocktails. The Professor assures the public of his earnest be lief that before the next month with a letter 'R' comes around, the well will be spouting inexhaustable stores of these rich fruits of mother earth."

I Washington, January 29. —Senators Kenna and Piatt are understood to contemplate the delivery of speeches on the tariff and surplus during the week. The urgent deficiency appro priation will be reported to the House at the beginning of the week, and its consideration will consume a day or two. Wilkins' National Bank Bill stands first in the order of unfinished business, but unless its author recovers from his illness in time to give it at tention, it will give place to the reso lution assigning au unlimited period of time for the consideration of a large number of bills for the erection of public buildings. This proposition will be vigorously opposed by a small minority, and if not disposed of by Thursday, will then be sent back again to the calendar, as the elections committee intends to call up Lowiy VI. White, the Indiana election case on Thursday, which will possibly consume the remainder of the week. The Pension Appropriation bill, which is a privileged matter, may be called up for action during the week, and the Committee on Foreign Affairs will make an effort to pass the French Exposition bill, if opportunity offers. blair's bill due to-day. " Tho Education bill remains, as for three weeks past, the unfinished busi ness of the Senate for to-motrow, and Senator Morgan has the floor for a si>eech on it. It is likely to give place temporarily to-morrow or Tuesday to a House bill making appropriations tor agricultural experiment stations. If the Education bill iB brought to a vote before the end of the week it will probably be succeeded by the Undervaluation or Dependent Pension bill. TEMPERANCE topics. The House Committee on alcholic liquor traffic has instructed its chair man, Representative Campbell, of Ohio, to call the Speaker's attention to the fact that the* bills relating to the liquor business have been retired to the Committees on Judiciary, Ways and Means, and the District of Colum bia, instead of the Committee on alcholic liquor traffic, which commit tee it is contended properly has juris diction of the bills effecting the liquor question. On the 9th of February the Comittee will give a hear ing to a delegation from the National Temperance Alliance on the bill to create a commission to in quire into the liquor traffic. Repre sentative Campbell said to-night that while he would not speak for the com mission, he personally was not in favor of prohibition. He continued: "You cannot-make men temperate by statute. A direct license law will prove effective. It will stop the sale of liquor to minors aud druuken men. It stops Sunday selling and closes dis orderly saloons." CANADIAN POLITICS. Serious Trouble Itroodiiiff in Manitoba. St. Paul, January 29. —The Winni peg correspondent of the Pioneer-Press telegraphs that a perfect storm of in dignation has been created among the Independent members cf the Conserv ative party over the proposition for a compromise with (he Dominion Gov ernment and the Canadian Pacific, Outlined in a conservative meeting at Brandon. This proposition condemns the selection of Norquay as Conservative leader, and declares that all the agita tion for the completion of the Red River Valley Railroad will be abandoned if the Canadian Pacific makes certain concessions, among them that its monopoly shall be abandoned in 1891. J. B. McKillingan one of the most prominent Coniervi * tives sends in his resignation as a member of the Conservative Associa tion and declares that, between the Dominion government and the pro vince, no compromise can be made that does not give immediate cessation of the disallowance of police, aud if agi tation is necessary to accomplish our cuds it will be the Dominion govern ment that is to blame for tho conse quences. The correspondent declares his belief that Manitoba is on the eve of an agitation far greater than any previous. A NIHILIST'S PROTECT Against auy Extradition Be tween the U. S. aud Russia. Washington, January 29, —A plea for the rejection of the proposed ex tradition treaty between the Russian and United States governments has been sent to Senator Hawley by Ser gius M. Stepniak, a Russian nihilist, now located in London. St-pniak makes a special request that the mat ter be laid before the ienate Commit tee on foreign relations. Stepniak sets down as his text that it is a rule with all civilized nations that nobody can be condemned without being heard iv his defense, and that the projected extradition treaty with the Russian government, if ratified by the American Senate, will be a wholesale condemnation to capital punishment and worse, to any number of Russian patriotic people, designated as nihil ists, who may Beck refuge from the despotism of the Czar. MEXICAN RAIXROAOINU. Graders Hard at Work on a New Narrow Uausre Road. El Paso, January 29.—Joseph Hampson, a millionaire railroad builder, arrived here from Celayo, Mexico, to-day. He has the con tract for constructing the Mex ican National narrow guage road, from Saltillo to San Miguel, an advance of 365 miles on the. Southern Division. He has 1,000 teams and 4,000 men employed, and about 2,500 working on the Northern Division. The two forces will meet at San Luis Pdtosi abut September 1, when the entire road from Laredo to the City of Mebcico will be completed. The road crosses the Mexican Central at Celayo, 265 miles from the City of Mexico. UNCLAIMED DEAD. What Becomes of New York's Unidentified Bodies. Fully 1000 bodies are utilized each year for dissecting purposes in New York City Each medical col lege is entitled to a certain number by law, in proportion to the number of students it represents. The College of Physicians and Surgeons, whjch is the medical department of Columbia College, has over 700 students this year. This representing the largest number of medical students in any one institution, the college has the claim on th«T greatest number of "cadavers." Two hundred and sixty are required each college session. The University of the City of New York, which has 600 ' students, requires abbut 240: Bellevue Hospital Medical College requires 200, and the remaining 300 are divided among the minor institutions. Be sides the number of bodies, or, to use the medical t«rm, "cadavers," which serve for anatomical study, at least 100 more are used to illustrate lectures upon operatic surgery. The object of this is to teach students to operate upon dead Subjects before experi menting upon the living. All these bodies are unclaimed dead, which are kept, in accordance with the law, for three dayd for identification before being disposed of. However revolting the idea of dissecting may be, it is absolutely essential to the study of medical scien c. The College! of Physicians and Sur geons has the finest dissecting room in the if not in the world. It has forty tables. These are of mod ern design and simple in construction, consisting of an iron frame supported by four iron legs, upon which rests a slab of slate vjeighing 200 pounds. An inch from the margin of this slab is a groove half art inch in depth, intend ed to convey the drippings into an iron receptacle fastened to the head of the table, j Five students are as signed to each "cadaver," so that with the forty tables two hundred men are enabled to work at once. Five hours a day devoted to a subject will enable a feroup of students to dis sect it completely within one week. Each student is assigned to work on a specified portion of the "cadaver" by a demonstrator of anatomy, and is required to dissect, an entire body during the first year of his course. If he has failed to pass a satisfactory ex amiuation hej is again subjected to a similar task, until his knowledge of anatomy is proved. Strange as it may seem some stu dents acquire a fanatical fondness for this branch their study, and are never so happy as when in the dis secting room. Clad in a loose gown of calico, scalpel in hand, they seem to be in their clement, laughing and jesting merrily as they divide tendon after tendon, and seperate muscle after muscle, in their investiga tion into the deep and intricate structure of the human frame. Each college has a superintendent of whose business it is to sslect from the unclaimed dead his proportion of bodies. These he duly inspects, labels and has transferred by night to the college he represents. Having arrived at the place of destina tion, the "cadavers" are injected with a preserving! fluid and placed in an immense refrigerator. Properly pre pared,-a body will stand exposure to the atmosphere of a dissecting-room for a month or six weeks. There ex ists considerable rivalry among the emhalmers of "cadavers" as to who possesses the best method of preser vation. In New York, Mr. Walsh, of the University Collese.who embalmed the late President Garfield, is regard ed as the most expert. Some of the colleges cremate the dissected re mains; others bury them. Each medical student is entitled to the bones of a subject. A feature, iv the College of Physicians and Surgeons is a "Circulating Bone Library." A large numbfjr of disarticulated skele tons are kept here, and separate bones are lei.t fori study as books are lent from the circulating library. There are about 2200 medical stu dents in York tlus year. They come from all parts of the country; from Maine to Texas, from Massachu setts to California. Many of them are graduated physicians from other medi cal colleges,! who come heie to lake ad vantage of tbe hospital facilities of the city and to familiarize themselves with the more recent system of applied medicine and surgery. Some of them are geniuses iv their way. They seem to have failed in making pro gress in other walks of life, und have | adopted medicine as a last resort. In appearance they are unkempt, with shabby coats and short trousers. They appear to be perpetually on the run to attend a clinic, and yet have plenty of time to absorb beer when invited. Poor men most of them, who club together, hire apartments!, divide expenses on food aud books, and rush the "growler" at night with the enthusiasm of a fourth ward tough. A visitor to the Bellevue Hospital Amphitheatre, where clinics are held day, can form some idea of the material, which, through the process of evolution, makes doctors. Here arel collected dudes and coun trymen and men of middle age. Some of them will continue to study for years in vain, others are destined to shine in their profession. The shabby little man who squints through his pair of brass-bound spectacles is astonish ingly wise b,nd marvelously recondite on the subjects of bacteria, thrombosis and affections of the anterior horns in the brain. Sitting near him is the man whose head would delight any phrenologist, whose intellect seems seated in his forehead, but who at taches more importance to his pipe and bottle than to the midnight oil. He has mistaken his calling. He is a man of talent, undoubtedly, but he should have exerted it in another line. What a splendid Anarchist the world has lost through his error.

A SHOOTING AFFRAY Between Cbarlce NcKlnua anal Parker Robblua. Yesterday a shooting affray took place at No. 32 Aliso street between Charles McKinna and Parker Rob bins. The following are the particu lars, as related by McKinna: "We had been strolling around together during the forenoon and went into the restaurant at 32 Aliso street for a lunch. When we came out I shook dice with Charles Cornnce for the cigars and he beat me. I paid for the cigars. He then commenced to shake with Robbins and beat him. I remarked to Robbins, 'You are beat, as the other fellow got sixes and you have only fours.' Robbins replied with an o.ith that I was a liar, and struck at me. I warded off his blow and in doing it I hit him in the mo vth. He then said lie would get even with me. I left and went down on to Com mercial street and came back around on Main street. I had not been at the cigar stand but a few moments when Robbins came back and I said hallo Par. He immediately drew his revolver and said 'Charlie McKinna, I will shoot you.' I rushed at him but before I got to him he bad discharged the contents of the revol ver. The ball struck me on the left shoulder on the collar bone and glanced out. I clinched him and we both fell to the gutter. Cornuce took the revolver away, and immediately officers aud Harris arrested all three of us. Robbins and I had been good friends We roomed to gether since we have been here (about eight weeks). I am a stone mason and have been working for Contractor Walkes. Robbins was a blacksmith, rud worked a while for a man by tbe name of Maloney, but was discharged some time ago, and I got him a Job with me, when we took our tools to the shops and had them sharpened. We both came from Maine, and got acquainted in New York on our way out here." Robbins was charged with assault to kill. There was much in the career of ex- Secretary Manning that was typical of the best side of American life. He began as a poor boy, sweeping the floor and doing errands in an Albany newspaper office. Working his way up by industry and prudence, he be came the head of the establishment and its principal proprietor, besides occupying many positions of trust and honor in the community. He be came a leader in his party, a maker oi Governors and of one President, and was eventually made head of the Trea sury Department, the most powerful office under the government after that, of the President himself. There is much, in his story from which the young, who have no capital but their hands* may take courage.—[New York Tri bune, Kep.
