A Boy With a Can of Benzine Stumbles in
the Dark.
CixrastTi, O., May 22.—Late last night
the boy who could give an authentic ac
count of the origin oi the Sullivan tire yes
terday, on Sixth street, was found by the
Coroner's clerk at his home in the extreme
eastern portion of the city. The boy's name
is John Meyers. It appears he ran from
the building at the very beginning of the
fire and went to a drug store, where his
wounds were dressed and he then went
home. He says he was sent down to the
first floor yesterday afternoon to get a
two gallon can of benzine. He
got it from Orth & Wis
sel. who keep a dye house on the first
tioor. Going up to the second door he was
passine along a narrow passée beside the
presses in the direction of the elevator shaft,
»hen in the dark he stumbled, struck the
can against a press and broke the glass.
The benziue flowed ont and as the press
man had a sras light burning there the light
sas almost instantly exploded. Meyers'
fret saturated with benzine, took fire and he
ran toward the stairway, where he extin
guished the tire on his person and ran down
to the drug store as before stated. The
coroner will begin the inquest to-morrow.

Winnipeg, May 22.—A heavy cyclone
passed ov»r the northwestern outskirts of
the city this afternoon traveling eastward.
Ii caused a great waterspout where it struck
the river. iCoofs were blown off and sev
eral houses and a few people were injured,
but none killed so far as heard' A similar
storm was seen at the saine time at the
southwest of the city, moving ia the same
direction It is known what amount of
damage was done.
Busine*!* failures.
New Yohk, May 22.—The business fail
ures occurring throughout the country dur
ing the last seven days, as reported to R.
G. L>un Jc Co., number for the luited States
211 and for Canada 23. or a total of 239,

No Immediate Pro»pect of a Transfer of
the Works.
No material progress has been made by
those stockholders in the LaBjlle (.Was*
Works who favor the transfer ot the works
to a Wheeling syndicate, in obtaining the
consent ot the three or tour stockholders
who oppose the project. Quite a number of
conferences have recently taken place, but
the minority shows Kttle or no signs of
changing their views, and the
majority seem to think that the
works ' must remain in idle
ness tor an indefinite time. The stock
holders still holding out are understood to
be Richard Farley, of Bellaire, Mrs. J. K.
Mitchell, ot Bridgeport, and Bartolis Clem
eLP, of this city. It seems strange that
this trio should so persistently oppose the
wishes and thwart the plans of stveuty-five
other stockholders.
Yesterday s Pitt*bur*h Commercial Ga
zette contained the following interview with
('»pt Dunlevy. Secretary of the works:
"While our factory has not been in blast
1er considerably more than a year. I know
ti at trade is bad and prices very dull. The
season of l->3 has not been in the least re
assuring. Our factory is included in tbe
list of Ohio factories that is standing out
»gainst pajinjî workmen for the work they
do not do. There has not been any work
done in any of the Martin s Ferry, Bridge
port or Bellaire factories since last Decem
ber, and I am certain that when work is re
sumed it will be on the Pittsburg princ pie,
or in other words, on the piece princip e ot
Eying tor work. I do not think that we
ve lott much money on accou t of th s
s'oppftge, as none of the companies that
have been operating their works hare done
a great deal of business.

MUs Alice Morris Expires Last Even.
Misa Alice Morris, the young lady who
was so terribly burned Thursday evening,
died about halt past five o clock last even
ing. From the moment th* extent ot her j
hurts were known her recovery was set
down as extremely improbable, and her
physicians held out little hope to her rela
tive« and friends. Although the unfortun
ate girl was kept under the influence of
opiates most ot the time, her sufferings must
have been very great. No new light has
been thrown upon the cause ot the explosion,
and it will proVably remain a mystery tor
all time.

Anglo-Russian Negotiations at a
Stand Still.
He Dies in Great Agony at Half
Past One Yesterday Af
Loxdos, May 22.—The Timee says: "It
is impossible to deny that the prevalent
fetling of anxiety and uncertainty is still
growing. From the scanty information
given by the ministers it is evident'that we
are no nearer a satisfactory settlement than
we were at the beginning of the month.
There are now signs of an advance in nego
tiations but on the contrary there are nu
merous evidences of a stand still.
More Correspondence About Penjdeh.
Loxdos, May 22.—The correspondence
which took place between Col. Xakrjewski,
of General Komaraffs staff, and Captain
Yate, of Gen. Sir Peter Lumsden's staff,
respecting the Afghan situation at the time
of the Penjdeh incident, is now made public.
It shows, among other things, that on the
same day Colonel Zahrjewaki accepted Capt.
Yate s invitation to a collation at which the
situation ol the opposing outposts was to be
discussed, General Komarafl sent an ulti
matum to Naib Salor, the commander of
the Afghan forces. This ordered Naib
Salor to withdraw all his troops to
the right bank of the Kusk
river. The ultimatum concluded in these
words: "There will be neither negotiations
nor explanations on the subject. You are
too intelligent and sharp sighted to compel
me to see to the fulfillment of this demand.
Naeb Salor replied that he had consulted
mith Captain yate and was bound to obey
tli? Ameer. General Komaroff rejoined,
insisting that compliance with terms of
bis ultimate was necessary to preserve
peace. lie warned Naeb Salor against
tiding the empty cosunels of others and
concluded thus: 'The choice between
friendship and enmity remains with you."

—A Sketch of tlie Great Poet.
Paris, May 22.—Victor Hugo die»î at
half past one this afternoon.
The Ministry will request the Chamber of
IVputies to adjourn &s a mark of respect to
the deceased.
It is reported that M. Hugo left hia nnnu
ecript to Frac ce and that he left it to the
Republic to select a burial place for his re
mains and to decide for his funeral.
Victor Hugo s condition was so man'fest
ly worse this morning that his death w^s re
garded as certain to to take place within a
lew hours. When this fact became known,
Cardinal Guibert, the Archbishop of Puis,
sent specially to Hugo's residence, offering
to visit him and administer spiritual aid
and the rites of the Catholic church. M.
Lockroy, the poet a son in law, who wpi in
attendance at the death bed when the Car-,
dtnal'a proitVr came, replied for Hugo, de"
dining with thanks the Archbishop s tender,
and saying:
"Victor Hugo is expecting death, but he
do€3 not desire the servfccs of a priesi."
[Victor Marie Hugo, Vicomte, one of the
most distinguished French writer« of the
present day, was born February 26, 1802,
at Besancon, where his father was then
commandant of the garrison. His mother
wa* a native ol I.e Vendee, and from her
he imbibed romantic royalist sentiments,
although his father was a'devotei follower
ot Napoleon. His youth was sp-nr partly
with his mo.her in Paris, pastly in Italy
and Spain. He early acquired distinc
tion by his poetic effusions, and
t-efor® he was thirty years of
a*« hi» published works were numer
ous and his name famous. Odes and bal
lad», romances, dramas, etc , flowed f'om
his prolific pen. Shortly before the revolu
tion of 1830 a literary revolution took
place, at the head of which was Hugo. A
band of yoong men, imaginative, ardent and
confident, sought to renovate French litera
ture by departing from classic rules and
models, snbstitaticg a varied and very ir
regular verse for the monotonoua Alexan
drines ol the old school and making art con
form precisely to nature, which he carried
no far as even to bring into prom
inence things disagreeable, which na
ture herse.t is displeased with, and
teachea to keep out of sight. The new
school, la Jeune France as they called them
•elves, formed the romanticists, and their
opponent», the classicists The literarv war
toted aeveral yean. Hugo's drama of
Marion iVlorne, was received with enthu
siasm, ani he added to hia reputation
by the publication of Feuilles d' Antoane. j
In the ministry suspended one I
of his dramas Le Roi s'
Amnse; but his popularity continued
to increase, and in H37 Louis Ph ilip
made him an cflù-er of the Legion of donor
and in 1^45 a peer of France. After the !
revolution of 1848 he was elected to repre
sent Paris both in the constituent and in
the legislative assembly, in which he mani
fested Democratic principles and wa? oae '
of the members of the Extreme Left who 1
were banished from France for life by I/>uia
Napoleon. He went to reside in the Ialand
of Jersey. In 1862 he assailed the
ruler of France in a political p^n
phet. Napoleon le Pettit; next year
in Les Châtiments, a series of p^ems writ
ten with gr*at rerre, in »he same spirit In
1856 he published his Contemplations. He
refused to avail himself ot the amn«*ty of
August 15, 1859, but on the tall of the'sm
pi™ hastened back to his native country,
joined in the Republican movement. 4ad
was returned to the National Assembly at
Bordeaux, which, however, he eoon quitted
in disgum; He then went to Brussels lut
the Belgian government expelled him from
the country, and he had to seek refug« in
V landen a village of Luxemburg
wb»re L Aimee Terrible was ompw-d
Returning to Paris in July, 1871, he
E leaded earnestly, but without effect, for the
vea ot the Communia ta. Hugo h&a given
an account of hia life in Act?« et Paroles,
1*70-72. In 1862 Lea Miaerables; in 1869
L'Homme au Rit; Quatre-vingt-Treize in
1874; hia Speeches in 1875; the Legende
dfs Siecle« in lt»77; L' Histoire d'un Crime,
1878; and Le Pope, a poem, 1878. Hugo's
writings are often extravagant both in form
and substance, and sometimes marred by
an affected triviality of images and harah
ness of versification. Yet tney have also
great excellences; the command of language
shown is wonderful, and as a lyric poet Hugo
has, perhaps, never been equaled in France.
Honors to Hugo.
Paris, May 22.—The newspapers of Paris
appeared in mourning this evening. It is
believed that the funeral will be the grand
eat seen in France for a century. The poet
was sketched as he lay in the death bed by
the great painter Bonnot, who will transfer
to canvas the impression taken. In the
Senate M. Le Royer delivered a ealogy on
Hugo. The speaker said that for the past
sixty years Victor Hugo had been the ad
tnirate of France and the world.
He had now entered immortalitv. Hi9
glory belonged to do party, but to all men
Prime Minister Brisaon delivered an eulogy
in the Chamber of Deputies. He said the
»hole nation mourned the loss of Victor
Hugo, and moved that the funeral of the
poet be conducted at the State's
expense. The motion was greet
ed with applause. The Senate and
Chamber adjourned in respect to the death
of Hugo. It is statea that M. Hugo
S>assed through long and terrible agony be
ore death. It is propoaed to enter the
poei's remains in Patheon, and that the day
of the funeral be declared a day of national
mourning on which all the government
offices, the schools and the theaters shall be

PiTTsurBG, May 22.—The conference be
tween the iron manufacturers and the Amal
gamated Association began this afternoon
at 2 o'clock and lasted till half past 11 o clock.
The day and night was spent in discussion,
not a vote even being taken, and the con
ference adjourned to meet in the morning
at 9 o'clock. It is under? c « that the
manufacturers are standing : tfor a 15 per
cent, reduction of the près tscale, while
the Amalgamated Associa . i demands the
adoption of the new scalr etented by them
this afternoon.
The Amalgamated Association has male
a move that may possibly avert a strike,
aiid the move is in strict accord with the
intimation given several days
since. Yesterday afternoon they sent a re
vised scale to the manufacturer's commit
tee, providing for the acceptance of
the 10 per cent, reduction, and
running the card rate down from
2} cents to 2 cents. It bases boiling at a
minimum price of $5 per ton, and ad
vances 10 cents on each one-tenth of a
cent until it reaches 2} cents card rate, at
which rate it again arrives at the price now
paid, which is $5.50 per ton. A'ter the
present price is reached the sca'e adyancea
15 cent« per one-tenth of a cent until 3J
card rate is reached. After that the ad
vance is 20 cents per one-tenth of a cent to
the end of the scale. The maximum price
is i*r ton at 4 J cents card rate.
The manufacturers' committee have
agreed to meet a committee from the Amal
gamated, and the meeting will be held this
evening. It is very likely that an agree
ment will be reached, though each of the
parties will not say what is likely to be
In the revised scale, handed over yester
day, a new scale for continuous trains, such
as are in operation at Dil worth, Porter A:
Co.'s, is added, based on the 2 cent card
rate. The price for rolling is 90 cents per
ten for 9-11» squares; for reheating. 49\
cents; for heating on the large mill, 63
ctnts per ton; for roughing on the lti-inch
train 13 1-10 cents, and for catching ou the
same train, 12 1-10 cents per ton.
The clause demanding 20 per cant, for
cutting steel nails above the price for cut
ting iron nails is withdrawn, as before an
nounced. The nailers having withdrawn
from the association made this necessary,
and therefore there is nothing in the book
oi hcales pertaining to nailiug. This leaves
the utw Jailers' .Aijsocititiou a clear field.

could. "The Bugle Song,'1 recited, was
well done. This piece is peculiarly difficult
ai.d requires not only a strong pair of lunjs
aid considerable musical ability, but a
lit e-appreciation ol tbe effect of sound. The
echoing bugle blast was portrayed 10 the

and almost weird prayer of the Scot-ish
Queen was rendered in all its pathetic 'prce

their appreciation of her effort by a recall.

as comically and with moie finish than Neu

▲ Card From a Member of the Christian
To Iht Editor of tht Rrgititr.
SiR: Being one of the ladies who visited
the County Infirmary, I would like to say &
few words and end thii controversy. We
went there as members of the Christian As
sociation to visit the inmates and distribute
tracts. We did not go to inspect the con
dition of the house. Mr. Creighton very
kindly showed up around, and in talking
about the place said it was not in the con
dition he hoped to have it. He said it vas
run down (I thick tho?<! were
his words), but he added that Mr.
Plankfy was sick a long time. Now, if
lomeone should say my house was no» in
good order but ascribe it to my poor health
as the reason, I don't think I would make a
fu8s about it, and I told Mr. Plankey's
daughter so when she called on ms on Wed
nesday, and that I did not think Mr. Creigh
ton intended any reflections on her father.
She acknowledged the house was not as
she would like to bave had it but said she
did the best she could under the circum
Then Mr. Delbrugge must come to the
rescue and say the statement« in the Keois
tkr were all utterly false. I think be
fore he makes another public state
ment, he had better know what
he is talking about, as Mr. Plankey's
daughter admits part of what he denies. It'
the basement is heated by heaters why did
she say she was afraid the girl might freeze,
and often went late at night to see that she
uns covered.
In regard to the bed standing in tin cans,
if Mr. Delbrugge did not see it, perhaps Mr.
Dillon would loan him a pair of far sighted
glasses the next time be goes out.
In conclusion if I am ever a Superinten
tendent of a public institution, I hope the
Poard of Managers will be men, for 1 think
tbey are all a little near sighted in regard to
housekeeping. Mrs. II.

Closely With t Horrible Murder ii
Of Thomas Scott in 1870—Whit
Robinson Says on the
Chicago, May 22.—An article was pub
lished here yesterday, giving a detailed ac
count of thehortible death in 1870 of Thoa.
Scott at the direct instance, if not literally,
at the handa of Louis Kiel, and in the
course of the article the name of a certain
Major Robinaon waa prominently mention
ed. This Major Kobineon sa ex-offi
cer of the Engliah army was for
a time editor of the paper called the New
Nation, published at Ft. Garry during tho
revolt of 1670, and was«, according to the
article, in close intercourse with KieL In
deed, it waa positively stated that. Major
Robinson was present at the death of Scott,
and a description of that heinous tragedy
was alleged received from him. The M^jor
in queation is at present in Chicago.
Ilia name is Ilenry M. Robinson, and he
ia employed aa associate editor at the In
terior, a weekly literary and religiour pa
per. To a reporter he was inclined to bo
reticent on the subject
"I am probably the only living man b«
sidea Louis Kiel, he aaid, "who knows the
full facts in regard to that painful and
shocking subject. I have many frienda
in Canada, both on the side of the
government and those of prsdelection
for Kiel. To revive the particulars of
the bloody inciient aliout which you aak
would only induce a bitter controversy with
no beneficial résulta. I saw the article. It
is true that I was for a time editor of the
New Nation and that my relationa with
Riel were somewhat intimate. It im true

Beyond this I do not care to »ay anything."
"Will you not tell whether Scott waa ac
tually killed bv the hand of Riel'/"
"No; I prefer to say nothing more. The
whole matter is very painful to me."
