Morris Bchoeuliolz, who was arrested iu New York recently on the charge of arson, has made a statement to the po lice which will probably result in the «rreat of a dozen or more insurance ad justors. It is alleged that 8ehoenholz confessed to tiring at least half a dozen houses in that city aud Brooklyn by pre arrangement, for the insurance. in Yonkers was all prepared and ready when it was prevented by accident. The fires that "panned out" were all sot with lienzine on the blad der plan. This plan is as simple as it is effective. The doomed stoop or flat is sprinkled with alcohol and a bladder tilled with the intlammable stuff is sus pended from the ceiling. Then it is set on tire and when the flames reach the bladder there is an explosion which destroys the property and every ves tige of the manner iu which the fire was set. A similar result is obtained by turning on all the gas and letting one jet burn. The explosive points are reached iu due time. These are the Hash fires that so puzzled police uiul firemen. Morris 8choenbolz was the oxjiort who did the business, but lie was himself simply tho tool of a gang of lire adjusters. One ' fire gang a DUN'S REVIEW. R. G. Dun k Co's, weekly review of trade says: More far-reaching than any other change during the past week, if really warranted by facts, is the con tinued rise in prices of wheat and cot ton. Real scarcity of either would affect all business. Happily, there is still room for hope that accounts of injury arc greatly exaggerated although there has l>een evidence during the week that Ixitli crops have suffered more than ut first reported. Other changes almost all favorable and some high ly encouraging. Labor troubles are clearly less threatening. Monetary conditions are satisfactory and the sub stantial increase in the commercial de mand is a good sign, through the clearing houses, have been greatly inffnenced by speculations, which at this time last year were cut down by the coal strike, aud toward the end of May, 1893, greatly reduced by bank failures. . . Cotton continues strong because it is lielived there will be much reduction in yield per acre as well as acreage. No estimate based on definite information puts the decrease in acreage at more than 13.6 per cent, which with a yield iHT acre equal to last year s would mean of 8,400,000 bales. Months Indore there can be anything are Exchanges, a crop must pn«i 1 HI definite as to the probable yield per acre, unless widespread disaster comes. Tho market lias been acting as if the future were known. The advance this week baa been only a sixteenth, and it is supposed the stronger speculators have realized. The manufacturers are doing well, though not all the machinery iB employed, but the demain has been letter and there are occasional advances in prices of goods. is A FATAL MISTAKE. a Deputy Sheriff 8.

Willis nnd SOUTHERN MANUFACTURERS. The special mill edition of the Balti more Manufacturers' Record, shows that the amount of capital invested in Cotton mills increased from W in 1880 and $01,000,000 in 1KJ0, to $107,000,000 at present, while about $12,000,000 additional will be •pent in the cons! ruction of the mills now building and projected. In 1880 the South had 607,000 spindles, in 1801, 1,700,000 spindles, anti at the present time 3,000,000 spindles, while the mills under construction will add 500,000 spindles more, or a total of 3,500,000 spindles, thus doubling the entire cot ton mill business of tho South since 1890. IS HE GUILTY. Stale Senator Buck of California, Uhder Suspicion. The police of San Francisco, arc still looking for the murderer of Miss Har rington. whose mutilated body found in her house on Ellis street Satur day. The woman had been stabbed and beaten to death by some blunt in strument, which has not yet l>een found. Other occupants of tho house told the police of au elderly man who had called frequently on Miss Harring ton, and who took her out driving. In the murdered womun's room was found a photograph of ex-State Senator Lew Buck, one of the most prominent frnit growers of the State. The people of tho house identified the picture of Buck as that of the man who called to see Miss Harrington. The police sent to Senator Buck's house in Oakland and requested him to come to San Francisco and tell what he knew of the case. Mr. Buck started to drive to the station, but on the way was thrown from his buggy and seriously injured. He is suffering from concussion of the brain, and may not recover. Senator Buck was in Ouklaud yesterday be tween 11 and 3 o'clock, and it is known that the mnrder was committed be tween 11 and 1 o'clock. A young Japanese, who had engaged a room in the house, has been detained pending investigation, but it is not believed that he had anything to do with the mnrder. Ex-Senator Buck's physicians said to-night, the injured man could not possibly survive, and his death is only a question of a few hours. When pitched from tho buggy Mr. Buck struck the ground on his head, fractur ing his skull. While tho police will not say defi nitely that they suspect Senator Buck of the murder, their evidence leads them to believe he knows something about it. _ WHS ONE HUNDRED DROWNED. of The French Steamer Dorn Pedro Wrecked.

An Interesting Report Made by the U. 8. Consul at Havre, France— Gresham's Successor May be Olney. Coillptrolter's Report. POLYGAMIST IMMIGRANTS. An interesting question has arisen in the treasury department which involves the legal meaning of the word jiolyga mist. Commissioner General Stump, of the immigration bureau, has re ceived application for the admission into this country of Robert Stevenson, his wife, Kate, Barbara Hunt, Lizzie Naylor and seven children. These emigrants recently arrived at Quebec, Canada, from Glasgow, Scotland, and in their affidavits state that they are Mormons in religion and full believers in polygamy, if so inclined, on reach ing their destination, Salt Lake City. The question involved is whether be lief in polygamy of itself and almence of proof of any polygamous act, brings the party within the inhibition of the law declaring that polygamists shall not be admitted into this country. Acting Secretary Wike has the subject under consideration. Mr. Stump is of the opinion that the parties should bo debarred admission. ANOTHER FRAUD ORDER. A frand order was issued Friday against W.

THE NATIONAL DEBT. - The public debt statement issued Saturday by the Treasury Department shows the debt of the United States, less cash in the treasury, to have been $912,363,295. This does not take into account $573,336,846 in certificates and treasury notes outstanding agaiuat which there is an equal amount of cash in the treasury. The debt on May 31 is therefore $5,386,611 less than on Following is a recapitulation April 30. of the debt: The interest-bearing debt is $716, for the month $100; 202,110; increase debt on which interest has ceased since maturity $1,734,920, decreaso $19,740; debt bearing no interest $379,836,461, decrease $864,737; making a total debt of $1,096,783,392.

Attorney General Olney has been added to the list of possible premiers, and there has been much talk in Wash ington to the effect that Olney will bo the next secretary of state. It is known that the president has a very high opin ion of Mr. Olney, and has consulted him frequently iu regard to matters re lating to the foreign policy. It is also said that the routine work of the attor ney's office is not congenial to Mr. Olney, and that he would be pleased to assume the duties of secretary of state, Opinions differ widely as to who would probably becomo the next attorney general iu case Mr. Olney should be secretary of state. AN INTEBESTÏNO REPORT. United States Consul Chancellor, at Havre, lias submitted to the state de partment an exhaustive report upon food preparation aud distribution. Ho says the recent scarcity of meat in the United States together with the very general suspicion of all American food supplies has aided in bringing before the minds of tho people of Europe the necessity of looking to home produc tion for supplies, aud much has al ready been done to consolidate and in crease the disposition by interdicting the importation of American cattle and by attempting te supply any deficiency by sulmtituting horse flesh or by such means as political economists have en deavored to demonstrate is practical. It is said that statistics show that all the food required by France can be produced in the country and thus put into the pockets of the French peasants many millions of francs hitherto sent abroad, while tho price of wheat will at the same time bo so reduced os to bring it within reach of the poorer classes in increased facilities. The con sul says that this doubtless involves the use of horseflesh and certain matters of the slaughter house, such as l>oue and viscera, which have also been thrown away. The essential require ment, it appears, is the general estab lishment of slaughter houses with re frigerating charniers and appliances for tho utilization of the edible ofal while fresh, coupled with facilities for the preparation of boiling joints and the proper treatment of refuse, which it is believed would at once place home farmers on a footing of equality with meat dealers abroad. It is further pointed out that a combination of co operative societies will bring consum ers and producers into more direct con tact to the advantage of botln Tho consul criticises American shippers for the manner in which they have shipped their cattle to Europe so that they have come in bruised and fevered, and with flesh in a septic condition, thus fostering tho prejudice of the people. DESTRUCTIVE FLAMES In the Oil Regions of Pennsylvania. A Town Burned. The woods about Ormsby arc on fire aud a number of oil rights have been destroyed, says an Press dispatch of Monday from Brad ford, Pa. All communication has been cut off. Fires are retried along the New York, Lake Erie aud Western railroad as far as Alleghany, N. Y. On the Buffalo, Rochester k Pittsburg road at Dent the property of the Em ery Oil Company is threatened. Oil rigs all through that section have been burned, as well as millions of feet of The most fear is felt Associated standing timber, at Rutherford Run, where 1000 pounds of nitro glycerine is stored. Run, a small settlement ten miles south of here, iu the heart of tho oil region, has been wiped off the face of tho earth by the flames. People had to flee for their lives, and great excite ment prevailed. The fire came so sud denly that many women and children were panic stricken and became unable to move, and had to be carried to places of safety. Passengers who rived here to-night over the Pittsburg & Western road say the woods for ten miles in the oil fields are a roaring moss of flames- Conductor lanlts say the people on the oil leases are fleeing for places of safety, but the fire spreads so rapidly that he cannot see how all of them could have been saved.

Raymond Willinms, 24 years old, jumped into the river Wednesday after noon, from the Anchor Line Company s wharf boat, at tho foot of Union street, Memphis, and was drowned. Williams, through the influence of a brother-in law, was put upon tho steamer which left St. Louis Saturday, as a clerk. From the beginning of the trip he was melancholy and by the time Cairo _ reachod, had developed pro nounced symptoms of insanity. He became so violent tliat Capt. Carvel 1 locked him up in his state room. His hallucination was that a mob was after him. He made his escape from the City of Hickman when the boat reached Memphis. Returning to the wharfboat Wednesday afternoon his actions aroused the suspicion and three negroes set to watch him. When he very was started to jump into the nver they were upon him but he got away and plunged into the water. The negroes followed in a skiff and twice had hold °* " liams' arm.

Martin, Tort Gibson, Miss., December 14, 1894. Mr. T. M. Searles, Special Agent Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association, Vicks burg Miss. : Mr Dear Sir: —I have carefully inspected the two policies written for me by your company. When first delivered to me there were many points in the contract tlias were objectionable, but I submitted the objections to yourself, and you promptly forwarded them to the Home Office. The president of the com pany, over his own signature, took up the objections Mtrialim, and has answered all of them to my satisfaction. The policies contain only such safeguards as are essential to the security of all tho policy holders. It differs in no reapeet from policies written by the old line companies, except that the cost is materially less, while the security to the assured is equally as good; in the old line companies Jhe premiums are almost twice as large. The Reserve Fund is a new feature in this kind of insurance, and it has so rapidly increased and lias now reached such proportions as to be a guarantee of the faithful compliance with the contract of the company. Much has been written by rivals and published by hostile agents, detrimental to your company,but my investigations show that all are unfounded exagérations, and the result of either envy or malice. I take pleasure in renom - mending your company aud the policies it writes. With kindest regards, I am verg truly yours, J. McC. Martin. A few figures showing how you can save yourself 50 per cent, annually on your life insurance: EXAMPLE: Ago— $313 00 162 00 Policy $10,000.
