Sam Williamson, the well known grain merchant, filed a petition in bankruptcy last Monday morning, showing total liabilities of $2(1,748, with assets of $00 in personal pro perty. Mr. Williamson, in tak ing this course, is securing relief from obligations incurred in a large grain deal that turned out unsuc cessfully and which involves some foreign creditors, as well. When Mr. Williamson was seen j he said that the compulsory filling of lucent seed contracts at a great personal loss on account of poor crops was largely responsible for his bankruptcy. He also said that i it was too early to say whether or I not he v ould resume business. There are a large number of cred t itors in the case, among whom are: Richard Later, of this place, $557 ; Labor Exchange of Lorenzo, $938 ; Rexburg Milling Co., $531 : j Iona Mercantile Co., $558: Nils j Hoff Grain Co., of Idaho rails, j $448.-Rigby S f ar.

The entertainment given at the opera house Tuesday night by the Modern Woodmen was a complete success. The camp decided only three weeks ago to hold an enter tainment on the 21st anniversary of the establishment of the Modern Woodmen organization, and then appointed a committee to do the balance, butin spite of the little effort exerted the program, the oys ter suppet and dance were thoroughly enjoyed and much credit is due I)i.

Democrats are at Sea as to Who to Rut up as Candidate. Washington, Jan. 2.— The meeting of the Democratic Nat ional committee within two weeks has not excited particular interest. The New York and Chicago are the only two candidates seriously considered for the national Demo crat j c convention, and New York seems to have the best of the argu ment at this time.

Chicago, Dec. 30. new Iroquois theatre 1 ' & 1 a is The grand which had just been finished five weeks, burn ed to the ground tonight, the worst theatre fire known in the history of the country.. According to official reports of the police, more than 500 men, women and children met death by fire, smoke and panic, during the matinee performance of Mr. Bluebird. Most of the dead are women and children. Scores were incinerated, while hundreds were suffocated by smoke and gas and crushed into pulp by one another while strug gling to escape, ^till hundreds of others are lying at their homes and in hospitals, between life and death with broken limbs and burns. Every undertaking establishment in the city is filled with bodies. From pit to dome the house was packed. Mothers and little ones had laughed themselves hoarse at the antics of Eddie Fov, the comed ian. It was in the middle of the play and the chorus, smiling and frolicsome, had just concluded sing ing the Moonlight song, when every thing back of the footlight was suddenly a broad wave of fire. Eddie Fov, chief comedian of the company,stood out from tlie panic stricken group on the stage to as sure the audience that there was no danger. In another instant smoke burst from the top arch of the stage and from under the bottom of the curtain. Before a man or woman in the seats could rise the whole roof of the auditorium was ablaze. Two gas tanks exploded in the files on the east side of the theatre, and the black choaking fumes heat down in a cloud of death from every wall. More than a thousand persons in the orchestra seats, with easy ac cess to the doors, made their way to safety. In the balcony and gallery de struction wrought frightful work. Flame and smoke, gathering on these upper floors, caught the vic tims before they realized the full extent of the danger. It seemed incredible that the little'rush of fire could lap the walls so quickly and reach out after them like a stroke of lightning. The classic outlines of the the ater, the beautiful plush hangings, the arched windows, with their stained glass,and the stately pillars, became a morgue five minutes after the first little ribbon of fire made its way along the stage. About 550 people were killed in ten minutes. The accounts of the origin of the fire are conflicting,and none of them certain, but the reason given is that an electric wire near the lower part of a piece of drop scenery sud denly broke and was grounded. as a SUCCESS.
