The Most Pitiful and Horrible Affair
Cincinnati Ever Saw.
Cincinn ati, May 21.—At 1:30 this after
noon & fire broke out in a fire story build
ing at the corner of Sixth and Walnut
streets, occupied by Sullivan <k Co., printers.
There is also a laundry in the building, in
which a number of girla are employed The
flames spread so rapidly that it cut off their
escape, and several girls jumped from the
«bird story windows and were inatantlv
killed.
A DETAILED ACCOUNT
Of the Most Pitiful Lu«* of Life Cincinnati
Ever Und.
Cixcixnati, 0., ;May 21.—This city has
bad its share of shocking disasters, but
never has one happened where such a piti
ful 10*3 of life has occurred as that of to-day
with so little occasion. In less than fifteen
minutes after the fatal blunder began 16 or
17 persons perished. Looking over the
scene after the event it is plaiu that every
life could hare been easily saved. Short as
the time was thtre were displays of thought
ful
HeroUm
that saved two lives, but one of the heroes
lost his own life. At half past one o'clock
this afternoon Mr. J. A. Green, city editor
of the TimearStar, upon goin^' up stairs on
the way to his ofEce, saw dense clouds of
smoke'issuing from the rear windows of the
buildings, No. 19 and 21 West Sixth street
and immediately telephoned to the fire de
partment. An alarm brought engines
almost instantly, and as the firemen could
reach the building from the front and rear,
it was not fifteen minutes until the fire was
so much under control that the Chief kugi
neer was able to reach the fifth or top tloor.
But be was too late to rescue the girls em
ployed there and to his»
Horror
he found ten dead bodies lying with hands
to faces and faces blackened and destroyed
in death. The Chief said, in speaking of
it, "The bouse is not burned out, in fact
the fire was chiefly in the fifth story. The
smoke begrimed girls were lving upon
benches, tables and other things and some
on the floor. Their clothing was not
burred but tho skin on the backs of their
hands was scorched. It was a terrible sight,
the worst I ever saw in my experience. The
gir's lay where they had fallen in their
wild anâ helpless despair. It has now been
■ fairly ascertained that the fire started from
A Cau of lieuiiue
on the second fioor tear the elevator shaft.
A boy on that tloor says he heard a report
and instantly the fire leaped to the elevator
gbaft and darted up it. The shaft reaches
to tbe top tloor of the building and from the
third story to the fifth it was eucircled by a
wooden stairway which was the only means
of access to these floors. The elevator
shaft, to add to its combustibility, was en
cased with a thin wooden lattice work. The
second tloor was the press room, the third
the competing room, the fourth a storage
and waste room and the fifth wm the folding
nom. As soon as the tire started
A Young Hero
John Sullivan, cousin of the pro
prietnr, ran up the stair way to the
tilth floor to give warning. Instantly at
I most he found he was too late to put them
down the ptair way and that his own retreat
•as cut cff. What he did for the frightened
iirls could only be told by the glim^es that
ronld be seen ol him at the smoking win
ifow whence four of the girls had already
• '»aped to thtir death. J. R. Kins
ky, son and his foreman had
go-e to the "roof of their building
adjoinirg this and knowirg that the girls
»ere imprisoned on the floor below, they
irocured * rope and lowered to the windo*
u here Sullivan was He ins'antlv grasped
it and fas'ering one of the girls to it helped
her out and Kinsley and Shroeder lowered
her safely to the sidewalk. The rope was
brought ard Suliivan again quickly fasten
ed it to another girl and sent her down
-afely. The rope came out the third time,
und as the other girls by this time were
mffocated or afraid to venture, Sullivan
fastened the rope to his body and wa* being
lowered; when half wav down the tlames
»hot out et a window and he fell.
Head Kor«mo«t to the Sidewalk«
When the girls were jumping from the win
dow a large colored uian heroically tried to
catch them and to break the force of the
fall. He nearly lost his own life in the at
tempt. Within ten minutes after the fire
begun the patrol wagons were called into
u*e to carry away the wounded and killed.
As well as can be ascertained there were
fifty occupants of the building, of whom
twenty or twen'v-five were girls in the
fifth " story. The bojs were on the
second ard third tloors, and this accounts
for their escape. All agree that the spread
rt tlames was almost instantaneous. Mr
Kinsley, who ran to £is upper floor in the
rear, where the flaires were in danger of
coming through his window, found the
smoke so dense that he had to craw! oa th<*
tloor to reach his window and close it. AU
this %»hile there was
An Avenue of F^rap«
which the panic stricken girls did not think
cf. It was an opening in the roof which
they could easily bave reached from a
bench and once on the roof they could
have reached other buildings with
! perfect safety. The lack of
! ready access to this place lost all these
I lives! The fire was almost insignificant.
1 bat wooded stairway around the elevator
is not burned so as to be unless or even
1 unsafe. Vet tiames seem to have pervaded
all floors and to have ruined all the paper
and other light combustible matter Sulli
van estimates his loss at from $*>,000 to
$11» 000, with ample insurance The lo«s
to the building is slight. The so«n*s at th»
nrdertaker's establishment where the dead 1
were taken and where friends and relative-«

Covington identified his sisters. Lizzie and
Dollie Handle, who were twins Mrs. Men.

be led away from tbe awful sight. Mrs.

GRANT'S CONDITION.
ff hat the Medical Record Will Say of Hi*
Case.
New York, May 21.—The Medical Ree
of Saturday next will say under the caption:
"The condition of General Grant." During
the pa&t week General Grant has been in a
comparatively comfortable condition. He
obtains his full amount of sleep and takes
his nourishment without difficulty and is
quite free trom pain. At the consultation
May 17th, Drs. Sands, Shrady and Douglass
being present, it was found that the
swelling under the angle of the
jaw on the right side had increased in size,
that the glands were still indurated and
deeply fixed, also that there was a tendency
toward diffused infiltration into adjoining
tissues of the upper and anterior portions
of the neck. There was consequently some
rigidity of the jaws, preventing the wide
opening of the mouth, thus in a measure in
terfering with examination of the throat.
The palate at the curtain was somewhat
swollen, but the destructive process at the
side of the uvula Lid not marked
extended. No change had been noted in
the appearances of the right tonsil region,
nor in these of the posterier part of the
pharynx. The ulceration on the right side
of the base of the tongue showed a tendency
to extend backward was more excavated
and had an elevated and indurated border.
At the examination on Wednesday, made
by Drs. Douglas and Shrady, the local con
ditions were found to be unchanged.
TWO SISTERS CONVICTS.
Two Women With Infant' in Arms Sont to
the Penitentiary.
Madison, Wis., May 21.—In th° Munici
pal Court yesterday Mrs Rebecca Merraot,
of liaraboo. and Mrs. Margaret M. Cooley,
of Mitchell, Dak., sisters, pleaded guilty
to the charge of perjury. They have now
each been sentenced to two years in
State's prison. Kach woman when sen
tenced bad an infant in her arms. Kneel
ing at the feet of the Judge they
piteously pleaded for mercy "for their ha
bits sake. ' The scene was a heartrendering
one. Judge Braley, with tears in his
eyes, said the law wa3 inexorable, but he
would fix the lowest penalty prescribed. The
women then prayed and sobbed and uttered
'errible shrieks ad they were finally removed
by the officers. They said that a man named
Kirby had threatened their lives if thev did
not swear as they did, and that they had for
years lived in mortal terror of him. Both
are respectable women of good repute. Their
batiks accompany them to the penitentiary.
An effort will be made to secure an execu
tive f»ardon in their case. These women are
niiters of the wife of James Kirby, alias Sim
mons, a well known cracksman, who, with
a man named Edwards, was last November
sentenecd to States prison in Wisconsin, for
five ) ears for burglary in Madison. At tl^
ttial ot Kirby these women swore that they
were in lîaraboo at Mrs. Merraot's home the
1 t'.th of July last, the night of the burglary,
and that Kirby was also there. They also
taid that that night Mrs. Merraot gave birth
10 a child. The attempt to prove an alibi
was unavailing, however, and Kirby was
found guilty after a most exciting trial. The
women were then arrested for perjury in the
case. It was proven that the child was born
May fith and that Kirby was not present
even at that time

.1 Peculiar Content Oirr the Will of a
Suicide.
Chicago, May 21.—The vidict in a pecu
liar piece of litigation was announced this
this morning. The will of John Trinkler
j (a suicide ard attempted wile murderer)

f Trinkler was probated June 21, ISSU,and
letters were granted to Gwynu Garnett, a
lawyer. Trinkler's other brothers and hi«
neices and nephews bronght suit to have
the will declared void. It was charged bv
the contestants that Trinkler bequeathed
the property as he did through the undue
irtluence oi Dauiel S. Trinkler. a legatee,
at:d George S. Trinkler, father of the other
legatees, who caused the domestic tragedy
*nd reaped the benefit of the will by repre
senting to Trinkler that his wife was untrue
to him. A great deal of evidence was
lu ard but no contest was made by the lega
tees, and the jury found from the facts,
that undue influence had bean employed on
the testator, and that the will was not the last
«ill and testament of Trinkler. As prayed
I in the bill, the will was laid aside, and a
distribution ot Trinkler's property will be
made among the heirs-at law

Forging a Chain of Evidence Around the
Prisoner.
FionvoNP, Va., May 21.—The morning
session of the Cluverius-Madison murder
trial was mainly occupied in examination
of several employes of the Belle Isle nail
works, as to the visit of a man and woman
to the works on March 13. All of the wit
nesses concurred in their statements as to
the presence of the couple on that day and
as to the general description as to their ap
pearance. Several witnesses testified to
having seen the prisoner at the cityjail and
to having identified him there as the man
thr-y had seen on the Isle, picking him out
from a numoer of other prisoners. A letter
written by the prisoner to Lillian in Sept
ember last and poem found in Lillian s

PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
An Interesting Interview With Mr.
Montgomery,
ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL
For the Interior Department, Whose Record
Has Been Raked Over as an Oppo
nent to the System,
SENATOR KENNA ON RANDALL'S VIEWS
Special to the Reguter.
Washixgtox, May 21.—"Do you know
what the newspapers are saying about you,
Mr. Montgomery?" your correspond
said to Mr. Zachariah Montgomery, who
has been selected as Assistant Attorney
General for the Department of the Interior,
but who is now attacked because of his rec
ord as opponent of the public school system.
"I don't know that I know all that they
are saying" he said with a smile, "but if Ihey
stick to the truth I am content."
He is a tall man, standing fully six feet
high, so tall thaf Lis well shaped head has
pushed its way through a once thick growth
of hair and rises above a tew fringes of the
same in a luxuriance of baldness that would
«race a front row at the ballet. He is not
handsome for he 13 the sort of man who
gives more thought to mind than to body,
even if he did not he would not be hand
some. His eyes are peculiar in appearance,
half closed as he talks, the outer corners
having a peculiar downward curve, with
which his mouth seems to sympathize for
its corners also drop in about the same
manner. His iron gray whiskers are shaven
irom his upper and lower lips aud run in a
fringe about his chin. His six foot Ken
tucky figure, the production ol the bluegrass
water and food and climate, is well propor
tioned, and might ,be the envy of half the
army men in town who cultivate the physi
cal as he does the intellectual.
' Yep, I Lave views on the Public School
'3 stem," he said, "and very pronounced
ones. I have held them for a long tiine,
too, and have never hesitated to avow them
«hen there was reason for doing so. I cer
tainly don't propose to permit the fact that
I have been selected for a public office to
cause me to change my views on a matter
of this importance or to prevent me from
avowing them at proper occasions, though
i have no desire to offensively parade."
"Would you object to stating them briefly
for tbe reading public then/"
"Not at all. On the contrary, I am glad
of an opportunity of correcting any mis
statements or erroneous views regarding
them that may have got abroad, and to
place before the public a theory that is en
dorsed by a great many men ol distinction,
and is the result of a careful study of the
facts in the case. If it strikes at the root of
what is considered an important and al
most sacred feature of our system,
it is the fault of the facts, which
are gathered from official figures
aiid not of the man who has the nerve to
«-.Il the attention to them in the face of
ike feeling that it is sure to arouse. There
i^, os I know, an idea, that to attack our
public school system is next thing to attack
ing tbe Bible. I attack it because 1 am
.-«•titfied that it is wrong, and that I believe
it is making a too large class of criminals
a; J law breakers among the rising genera
tion. It is not because I am opposed to
•.ducction. On the contrary, I favor it,
most heartily."
"How do you reach the conclusions you
have expresstd ou this subject Mr. Mont
gomery? '
"l'y a simple course ot r?asonin<» Dasea
on facta gathered by our trusted public
• :!icials. My 'undamental idea is that the
public Behoof system takes the child out of
•be ccntrol ot tne parents and places it in
control of persons who do not know it
Intimately, who have no personal interest in
its welfare, and who cannot give it the
oisonal care that a parent would, even it
hey desired to do so. No one can give the
ttfïi'ctiocate care to a child that the
parent does, and anyone who has seen
?he workings of the public school
.•»vstem must see how it takes the child out
from under the guidance of the parent, and
causes him to less respect and to throw off
he control ot the guardians that nature has
; ro*idtd for him. In the public school the
parent cnn neither control the views his
hild imbibes nor the associations he <orm3
11 e pupil is taught that the views and au
;bority of the teacher are above those of his
h rent. Every writer on the subject ot law
• r morals claim with one voice that the
tirent is bound to educate his children, as
«111 as to feed and clothe them. By this
ijstun you introduce oue feature of com
:jr.ii.L-m. You might as well go another
s'f-p and say that they shall be ted from a
rommoniund, or clothed in classes from
•he public fund."
"You speak of facts and figures to prove
your theories."
"Yes. I have made a careful analysis of
be ccdsus figures, with this in view. 1 did
r>ot become po thoroughly convinced of the
c« rrectcess of my views until I had made
1 ese investigations. I made them before
he census of l>so. 1 did rot think it best
io take the census of 1^70, for that was
taken just after the war, when things were
net in their normal condition So I took the
eer.scsof 18G0, andconipnredthestatisticsof
of the five New England States that have
hnd the public school for so long with
'hese of the States ot Delaware, Maryland,
Virginia, (ieorgia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Massachusetts and the other
States had 2.1«6">,943 native born white in
habitants against 3,181,069 in the Southern
S'ates that have no public schools. The
proportion ot those who could not read was
a uch greater in the South, ye* I foand that
the New England Staies had with their two
and a halt millions of people 2,-459 crimi
nals in prisons, whil*e the Southern States
had with three millions of whites, compara
tively unfettered, only 4T7 in prison; or in
other words the New England system had
cne native born white criminal to ever one
thousand persons, while the Southern State«
had but one to every six thousand five hun
dred, or six times as many in propoation to
the population in New England as in the
South. This ratio also extendi to pauper
ism. suicide, and even to insanity.
' I)o you find the later ceoius bearing
I you ont in vour views?"
"Yes, telly."
' You are accused ot urging this theory
trcm a religion« standpoint, of favoring
l Utting the educational system and its funds
iuto the hands of the church."
"For which there is no authority. I do
not favor it Here is my theory, in a word:
First—Parents are bound to teed, clothe
ai.d educate their children, and should be
compelled to do so.
Second—It is a public dntr to feed,
c'othe and educate, at public expense, those
»hose parents are nnable.
Third—No citizen should be taxed to
teed, clothe or educate children whose par
ents are able to do for them.
Fourth—All parents, either mentally or
morally, unfit to have charge of ttoeir
children are in doty bound to w« that
neither teachers, societies or institution are
such as to injure their children in any way.
Filth—Neither the State nor the munici
pality thould force upon a child or parent a
te*cber or book or Bvstem. religiows <>r oth
eiwise to which its parent objiicU.
Sixth—Tuition, when a* the public ex
pen«*, should be a good English practical
education *ith f«p»cial training tor special
purpose*, ahich latter should be given to
such u bave special fitness for the same
and as rewards for special merit.
Seventh—The whole business of educa
tion should be open to private enterprise
and free competition. The State should es
tablish and maintain such facilities only as
private enterprise fails to maintain. Every
parent having his child educated at public
expense should select his own school and
teacher and system, teachers to be paid ac
cording to the progress the pupils make, the
progress to be ascertained by authorized ex
aminers, but no religious instruction which
may be given in the schools to be at public
expense or subject to the supervision of
these examiners.
That is my platform, and it is one of
which I am not at all ashamed."
Kenna on Randall's Views.
Senator Kenna said he had only heard of
the views of Mr. Kandall upon the Admin
istration, on his arrival in Washington last
evening, and, so far as he understood them.
Jmi agreed with the ex-Speaker. First, there
TWmrfo no* doubt regarding the honesty,
industry and capacity of the administra
tion to do all tnat was imposed upon it
The number of persons who think they can
alwayB do things better than the responsible
person is usually about ten to the one re
sponsible individual. It is so at a country
fire, when all the water in the neighborhood
is paying tribute to the flames. The fellows
who don't carry a.bucket nor yet exert
themselves in the least, always see how the
fire could be more quickly subdued, and yet
do not think of giving credit to the faithful
laborers.
ChlldlMi Critic*.
"I suppose," said Senator Kenna, "that
tie number of Democrats in the United
States who tanight think they could admin
ister the Presidential office more satisfacto
rily to themselves than Mr. Cleveland is per
forming that duty, is only limited by the
number who expect office and have not yet
the promise of such honor. So soon as an
active, restless fellow gets located he ceases
to be a reformer, and puts all his trust in the
administration. It only proves that
Mr. Cleveland 1» Doing 'Well,
very well, and the more experience he has
the more certain and rapid will the reforms
be made, which all citizens, regardless of
party affiliations, believe (should be made.
As to the views of Mr. Randall about nomi
nating Mr. Cleveland as our candidate in
1888, if that was the question to-day I
should vote aye every time. But one can
not always pri diet accurately his duty three
years ahead. Moreover, the Democratic
party is likely to be as stronp, if not
stronger, in 1888 tban in 1881, and in that
case it would be safe to declare that our
■•Budidale will be equally as successfully
thtn as last year.
Tariff Reform.
"Finally," said Senator K*nna, "that the
time lor tariff reform has come, has been
Mr. Randall's theory for years That is, he
has always said that measures should be
under Democratic patronage. It follows,
therefore, thut with a Democratic President
the necefsity for tariff legislation is now to
be recognized. On that proposition, too I
think there will be bnt very few opposing
votes in the next Congress among its Dem
ocratic members."

MACK1N AND GALLAGHER.
Their Case to Go to the United States
Supreme Court.
HARUN AND GRESHAM DISAGREE.
The Point of Disagreement That Will Carry
the Case to the Federal
Court.
AN INTERESTING ELECTION CASE.
Chicago, May 21.—The matter of the
writ of error asked for in the case of Joseph
C. Maekin and William J. Gallagher, and
argued before Judge Greeham and Justice
Harlan, was decided this morning. The
two Jurist« disagree. The effect of this is,
that the question will go to the United
States Supreme Court, and in the meantime
the convicted parties are released on bail
pending the decision. Mackin nnd Galla
gher were convitfxed oI rifling the ballot
box in the Third precinct ot the Kighteenth
ward at the recent national election and
substituting bey us ballots f or thu9e cast
by the electors. Therr prosecution was based
upon the filing of a criminal informa
tion againstlhem by the United States Dis
trict Attorney, and the point was urged by
their attorney in the [»resent instance that
their offense partook of the nature of an "in
famous crime ' in the meaning of the United
States statute, and that a criminal informa
tion was not adequate, but that the accused
should have been regularly indicted by the
grand jury. On this point Justice Harlan
und Judge Gresham disagree, the former
holding that the conviction of the men was
adequate and complete. The prosecution
of the men has been long and expensive
and great interest centered in the result,
owing to the prominence of Mackin in local
political affairs. If the Supreme Court
hliould sustain Judge Greshau» the prosecu
tion would have to be renewed. In the
meantime indictments against Mackin and
Gallagher are pending in the State Court. „
Geueriit Mite»' Argument.
In bis concluding argument for the prose
iT.iion, General Stiles said "The testi
mony in this case shows that the defendants
mo guilty bejoud any doubt or question.
The preceding by information in such cases
c in accordance with the settled practice ot
l;s district and circuit, and generally, we
■»lieve, of the Circuit and I'istrict Courts of
b° country. It is patent to the court, and
o all, that the defendants have not been in
any way prejudiced by the particular mode
of procedure adopted There is not the
lightest doubt but what a grand jury would
have indicted them without th« least hesita
tion. The evidence in possession of the
Government which was adequate to con
vict them, was certainly adequate to in
dict them. To far as the final result was
concerned it was wholly immaterial
whether they were tried upon an information
or an indictment. Kven if the court has
some doubt as to whether the crime in this
case is infamous within the meaning of the
constitution, yet in view of the considéra
• ions we have just referred to. it ought to
foilow the established practice of the circuit
fiitil the Supreme Court shall clearly indi
cate that it is wrong. Besides. Mackin and
Gallagher are the plaintiffs in this court
They allege error in the record, and the
burden is on them to make out their case
They must do more than raise a doubt in
the mind of the court, and the judgment of
the I'istrict Conrt should be allirmed unless
it clearly appears jhat its judgment is
wrong."
