DESTROY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
IN PROPERTY AND THE
LIVES OF TWO MEN.
(By Publishers' Press.)
MINNEAPOLIS. Minn.. Dec. 14.?
Jacob Miller and John Fellows, firemen,
were killed, and two other firemen
were hurt, and a property loss
of $650,000 tells the story of a fire
that threatened the retail district at
midnight. The totally destroyed are
the Bouteile Bros, furniture house,
$20,000; O. H. Pecks, photograph supply
house. $50,000; the Bintlill Manufacturing
Company, art goods. $50,000.
and the three buildings on Fifth
street and First avenue, occupied by
these concerns, all owned by Mrs.
Irene Hale, whose loss is $150,000. The
Powers department store, 1
across First avenue, -was damaged '
$100,000 by fire, water and smoke, '
before the -fire department checked
the flames early this morning. The 1

peals were sent to St. Paul for help. "
Two engines were sent, but at 12:20 1
the falling walls of the Hale buildings c
gave the firemen no chance to fight v
the first and losses were confined to ^
small figures except on the Hale p
buildings and tenants, and the Pow- ?
ers store directly facing Boutolle. F
Jacob Miller, of the Fire Insurance
Patrol, entering the Boutelle build- t!
r,g with a line of hose, fell into an n

tould not rescue him. and if he was
rot hilled instantly bv the fall he

V*. Friend. Vice president of the
Pressed Steel Car Company refused
to make a statement on the rumors
connecting him with the alleged financial
operations in this c;ty of Mrs.
Cassie L. Chadwick.
His secretary. W. S. Siebert. ut- '
clared that the Vice President refused 1
to speak to newspaper men through- 1
the secretary.
Mr. Siebert was asked to find out 1
if Mr. Knena would state whether of 1
not he had loaned Mrs. Chadw-.ck ?
5500,000 or 5SOO.OOO. 1
Secretary Siebert made this state- 1
nent:
"Mr. Friend instructed me to say -J

WACHEN AND CO-DEFENDANTS

(By Publishers* Press.) _
WASHINGTON", Dec. 14.?In view
of yesterday's finding by the Court of
Appeals of the District of Columbia.
the general belief prevails here that
Machen and his co-defendants in the
postoffice conspiracy case will have
to serve their sentences of two years
each, and pay fines of $10,000 each,
ivithout ranch further legal wringing.
The only way the case can be
}rolight before the Snrreme Court of
he United States is m application 'or
i writ of certiorari ana it has been
he practice of that tribunal invariably
o refuse such-writs.' unless there has
>een some manifest miscarriage of
ustice. Such does not appear to have
>een the case in this Instance. The
ill of exceptions alleging error in
he original trial covered almos. ev.
ry conceivable grottnd for objection
n behalf of the defendants.
This document was passed on by the
istrict Court of Appeals yesterday
ith the result that no substantia!
rror was found an-1 the government
as upheld in every essential particlar.
A reconsideration of the case

Shepard's opinion, and the concurrence

that a reconsideration could witn little
likelihood chanse the Court's understanding
of the case.

Court of the. Cnited'States for a writ !j
of certiorari, and a review there of
the Court of Appeals' opinion This
