The Pittsburg Exposition Building Wiped Out. ,jz ( Oiw n ttae Moa IHmtcro Fftres In Memovy Millions of. Iellrfl I Worth f Fmperty and Many Valuable 'l telle Hwopt Away in Twenty Minnie Tho Country for Mil en Around IjIuIiumI D. PiTTsnuno, Pa., Oct, 3. About 3 in the i morning the Exposition building caught fire, and in twenty minuteb the entire tincture, together with machinery and iloral hails, were in ashes. The fire was diaoowescd first in tho engine-room, in machinery department, and, in order noMo frighten the citizens, a still alarm was ecu tin, mid in this way the (lames got beyond control, to that before tho tire department reached the place the buildings were almost burned to the ground. When it became known that it was the Exposition building, although it was so late, ' an nnmenso crowd was soon on its way to tho scene of tho great couiiagration. The reflection from the lire lit up the country fox miles around, and in the furthest end of the city a paper could bo read as easily as in daylight. Tho loss is fully $2,500,-000. The exhibits consisted of all varieties of products and industries, including many valuable relies, among which was "Arabian," the old' locomotive of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, the first built in this country. The Allegheny river, and a largo portion of tho Pitts- burg & Western railroad's txestling was burned. A number of cars on the which extended between tho river and the exposition buildings,were entirely consumed. It is thought that at least 50,000 people were in tfu(ricinity and on the hills and high points of land in the neighborhood, from whence they could command a view. At the lower end of tho building is tue Union bridge, which has just caught 1'ro.n the railroad trestling before mentioned. If this should be destroyed tho los will bo very heavy. Within the pa.st two weeks tho htables were entirely consumed. ' It is supposed that the present (ire nated from a lighted cigar-stumpy thrown on tho iloor by borne careless visitor, and not perceived by any one of the watchmen specially appointed for the purpose of guarding against anything of tho kind. Tho flames startel in the northeast corner of Powor hail, and bofoie any of tho watchmen noticed it tho tinder-Hue Mrucmre, which was a perfect temptation for anything of the kind, was a mass of ilame. - There were about titteen watchmen in the building, and it is nut now known whether any have perimed in the flames. There never was a more complete destruction by Are than that of thu exposition. Tho bcene is one of the greatest confusion. Moving down along South avenue one can see heaps of broken iron, tho remains of the grout exhibit of stoves. Hack of them two safes, turned upside down and guiltless of paint, lear high ahovo thcii surroundings. A little further down, pulled partly out of tho wreck, is the exposition bate. It is bulged witii the heat aud no ono knows whether it has pro-served its valuable contents. Gas cscup ing from a broken puns furnishes tho only flume to be seen. (Iiurred piles btick up everywhere. Lines of twisted huftuu and iron pipo and cruv? again but all elso in the main building hus to a common level. The adventitious spirits who dare the dangers of ho tubers and pools of water can liud bits oi iron this a part of au exhibit, this from a car, tli is from ono of tho tine cariiagc that stood on tho north aisle, this from one of the many pianos, but not ono thin;' can they discern that is of any value ex cept for old junk. As Machinery Hall U approached the wreck looks more diu trous. The big engine sticks high up in air, greatest of all that is left. It wus mounted on a stone foundation and stand.-there complete, tho fly-wheel in place, the nickle plating on the cylinder still bright, but its glory has departed. The boilerh have settled down on the piles that supported them. The huge smokestacks are twisted and bent, and have fallen toward tho west. Down among tho piles that supported machinery hall are the remains of some of the bent machinery ever put up in Pittsburg. The old "Arabian," the Baltimore & Ohio engine that stood the perils of the rail for generations to perish in a fire, is u pitiful looking object, and almost a complete wreck. Very early tho crowd bogan to swell. Men, women, and children came floekiuu down, and all tho eti'orts of the police force could not keep them back. The craze for relics had broken out, and the people risked anything lor the sake of a memento, The value of the exhibit of art, relics, and pictures was $375,000, ami tho total loss is about 750,000, The insurance is tiboiit $250,000. Tho report that tho Pittsburg & Western railroad trestle and tho Union bridge wero burned is false, as they were not even scorched. The Exposition safe, which contained $3,000 and Levy's famous cornet, is all right, and Levy is wild with joy. Had a coniiagration occurred early at night, considering the rapidity with which the flumes spread, the loss ox life would have been appalling, us it would have been almost impossible for even a part of the crowd to escape Tho buildings which wero destroyed wero erected in 1375, Tho main building was 000 feet long and 150 wide. The machinery hall was 400 feet long and 150 wide. Tho other buildings veiebinall. IMiNlied From a linage. Newakk, Oct. 3. Michael Collins, bridge tender at Passaic river bridge of the Morris & Essex roa'd, was accidentally pushed from tho bridge and died in the hospital an hour later. James McDonald tb of East Newark, a passenger on tho 5 o'clock train from New York, was carried through to Newark. He started to walk across the bridge in opposition to tho rules and was driven hack by Collins. McDonald again attempted to cross, and passed Collins on another track, but was Btopped by Engineer Schemmcrhorn, who ilfAva litm Imnk. Mnnntime fVdlinfl lowed him up and was Jostled by McDon ald 60 tnai ne icii inrougn me unuguj distance of twenty feet, upon a stone pier. McDonald was arrested. . i i INDIAN TROUBLED A IMfllcHlty on the Turtle Mountain ItCHCrVAtlOII. St. Taul, Minn., Oct. 3. A telegram has been received at department headquarters from Major J. S. Conrad, 17th Infantry, commanding at Fort Totten, D. T stating that a committee of bottlers from the oa&tcrn slope of tho Turtle Mountains had arrived at the Fort and made complaint that tho Indians (probably Little Shell's band) threaten to kill tho stock of all tho settlers unless they leave the country at once: that about fifteen lodges of Indians from Wood Mountains, Canada, ate encamped in the neighborhood of tho settlement, and the Indians claim that tho settlers, who nro chiefly from the Canada sido, axe intruding on their reservation Major Conrad in his disnutch iUo states that the maps at Fort Totten show the claim of the Indians to be justified, but as tho settlers demand military protection he asks for instructions. Orders were at once ibsued for a careful investigation of tho matter, and if it shall appear that tho Rattlers, are actuallv intrudine on the res ervation they will be removed. Otherwise their demand few military protection shall beconiplied wkh. A telegram just received from Devil's Lake says the special government timber agent, who is just in from Turtle Mountain, reports that the Iudian trouble is principally caused by Little Bull, Little Shell's chief brave. Little Shell is married to two Creu squaws, and has brought fifteen lodges of Crees from tho Woody Mountains to his reservation, and is trying to have the government place them on his reservation. He has departed to get more of the Crees. Col. Conrad, at Fort Totten, is waiting orders from McCullom, Custom House officer at St. John's, is endeavoring to prevent trouble. Tho intention is to prosecute tho Government survey, but fears are entertained that it will be forcibly interrupted. An oflicial telegram has just been received at Fort Totten authorizing Cortex Tressen den, Surveyor General of Dakota, to adjust tho difficulties if possible. TIIE ATKINSON CEIME. Tho Detective Theory oh to Iotts' lroccc4lbiff. Lafayette, Ind,, Oct 3. The detective who arrested old man Potts for the murder of Ada Atkinson, gives tho following as his theory of the crime: Tho prisoner went there to commit a robbery; he tried to get the girl to tell him whero tho money was hidden: she refused: he tortured her by cutting her with his knife on the buck and hips. Just then Tom Ford came to the fence and called; the girl tried to answer; he choked her with the handkerchief tint was ulKiut her neck, and which, when the bo ly was found, was twisted so tight that it had to be cut oft". He cut her throat to destroy tho only witnetw of the crime. T.ie 411 1 ft y wietch then fled, and the dctccth es claim to have t nicked his footsteps out of the buck door and across the fields. It is difficult to make people bclievo that Potti in guilty of tho horriblo crime. The man who first arrested him on the night of tho murder said to a reporter that old PotN was innocent, every indication pointing that way. RUNAWAY TRAIN. Untitling Down n 2rmlo t Lltfhtiiluf; Speed, Tenn., Oct. 3. A freight train on the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Railroad wits going down a steep grade a few hundred yaids wet of Carter's Station, tho engine became unmanageable and rushed down the grade witii lightning rapidity. The whistle for down brakes was blown incessantly, but' to no avail, and the engine dashed into tho rear of the hecond section. When men at the station heard tho thunder of tho runaway train they rcjilued tho situation in au instant and turned tho switch from the main line, which threw the train on the side track into the freight train. The cabooso and three cars were entirely demolished and ten card badly damaged, The cabooso took firo while lying on top of the engine and ttas destroyed. Engineer Ashmore in jumping from tho engino was badly injured about the head. Tho fireman, in jumping, rolled down an ciubaukmcnt fully twenty-five feet, but was not seriously injured. The runaway engino was buried under the debris of burning cars and was almost a total ruin. THAT CHURCH FIGHT. Tho M'ur at WlikoslmrreSUtl in Full UlltHt. Wilkisuakri:, Pa., Oct. 3, Tho excite" ment in Nanticoke over tho church fight continues unabated. Father Gremlwiso has caused nino members of his flock to be arrested for assault and rioting. Tho congregation now threaten to arrest for misappropriating tho money. Tho reverend father totally denies tho charges brought against him by tho however, and asserts that tho trouble was started and fouicnted by a number of Polish liquor-dealers in revengo for his attempt to inaugurate a whisky crusade. Tho members of tho congregation held a mass-meeting and resoWed not to permit Gremlwiso to enter tho church or officiate at any servioo. Tho reverend father now talks of establishing another church and holding services, pending tho return of Bishop 0IIara, MORION METHODS.1 1 Tho CDookod Political Ways of tha Salt Lake Saints. That Chicago Interrlew With the ; Mormon Mayor, Jennings Morioua Trouble Itetwcon Nnlnts and tho Iaws are Rvarted niul Inellulblo lerHOii Pat Into Office. SaltLakb, Utah, Oct. a The inter-view with Mayor Jennings, telegraphed from Chicago, is a great surpriso here, and caused much comment Tlie general opinion is that tho Mayor didn't quite say the things the reporter credited him with, but he said what gave the reporter to understand them as said, for there ia much juggling of words among tho faithful always. The statements in ado were for the outside public, to be denied at home, but to stand abroad. Ilis explanation of how the Mormons let out the polygamic ofticcholdens, show what might have been done, but was not,so that tho majority of tho territorial county officers and local officers arc polygamists. Why, Jennings himself is Mayor of this city, though his name was specially ordered stricken off'tho voting list because of nolygamy. It thus happens largo numbers of persons are holding odico in Utah who could not vote at any election, and Jennings is ono of them. Jennings statement about a proffer of home ot the offices to Gentiles and their refusal to accept unless they could have nil is a naked fabrication. Nothing of tho Mrt was ever heard of here, and so this programme of keeping out tho Gentiles from office for the future is simply announcing that the old policy would bo continued, as, indeed, nobody ever expected anything better as lone as tho Mormons have control of iL Their desire as to this matter is shown by the fact that they have counted out and deprived of their positions tho very few Gentiles who were ever elected to offico in Utah, and given the otlico invariably to their Mormon brother who was beaten at the polls. "With icspect to tho social evil, tho Mayor said prostitution was increasing 80 ranidly here that he might have to move ail the lewd women out of tho city limits. They could never have come in but for the Mormons renting houses to themat high figures. Ho says, moreover, that there was fears of a burning of the town and lynching of the Tribune editors on the night of tho mob here recen,tlv. The former is a mistake. No body Feared a burning of tho town, whilo if there was any reason to fear a lynching of these editors it was not from any wild mob, but 11 om Mr. Jennings' police, whom he had been unable to restrain from the brutal beating of the lynched negro, and virtually leading the mob to its final extreme, and whom ho has since shielded and defended in a way that was astonishing to many persons who previously thought well of the Mayor. The I'ciislon JAnU Washington, D. C, Oct. 3. Commissioner of Pensions Dudley will ask Congress for an appropriation of $40,000,000 for the payment of pensions during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1835. Of the $100,000,000 appropriated hut bession it lias been estimated that about $39,000000 will remain in tho treasury to tho credit of pensions at the close of the present libcul year. Sinco tho 1st of January, 18S3, fully 30,000 names havo been added to the pension list, but even this increase the Commissioner thinks can bo taken care of. It is his opinion that there will bo a gradual decrease year by year until the pension appropriation can be kept down to about 525,000,000. With the amount that will probably bo on hand at tho close of tho present fiscal year and that which Congress will be asked for this winter it will be seen that .there is a prospective decrease in the pay-rolls of about $20,000,-000. JIunlrMl by nTrnmp. Paxton, 111,, Oct 3. Abraham Thorp, a laborer, aged thirty-two years, and a native of this county, was murdered in this citv. In tho evening he had a fight with James Kyan, a tramp, who hails from St, Iuis, and Kyan is now under arrest. At tho inquest, which is now under progress, the post mortem showed that his death was caused bv concussion of the ! brain. Thorp was concealed in an ice house to prevent arrest aud to sleep off' his debauch, and was clubbed to death during tho night. Whilo the evidence is not positive, there is no doubt it is sufficient to hold Kyan for trial. An Old LiMly'H r,oitff Walk. Laxcastkh, Oct. 3, Mrs. Louisa an old lady of this city, returned o her home, having walked on the turnpike all tho way from Philadelphia. She went to that city as a witness against brothers and lost her way when going to tho Broad Stieet Station. Nothing hud been heard of her since the hearing in the suit until she arrived here.

Ilar-key,- a haudsomo young fellow, a Baltimore drummer, was arrested here, charged with criminally as saulting a younjr. negro girl, maid in tho hotel in which he was a guest lie choked her in order to accomplish his purpose.

C, Oct. 3, It Is stated at tlie Post on") co Department that the reduction of letter postage rates from three to two cents for each half ounce or fraction will involve a deliciencv of about $3,-000.000 from October 1, 1883, until the end j of the fiscal year, ending June 30, 1SS4. ALFONSO'S ANGER. Frs or Oravo Trontolo From ttaa .French Iunalt. THS tSSULT TO ALFONSO. Berlin, Oct 3. The leading German papers in editorials on the hostile demonstration at Paris against King Alfonso, agree that tho better class of French are in no way responsible for the insults offered to the King by tho canaille of Paris. Paius, Oct 3. The trouble between France, Spain and Germany, growing out of the recent appointment of King Alfonso to the colonelcy of a Uhlan regiment by the Emperor .of Ucrmanv, and tho insults offered to the King on the occasion of his visit to Paris, has assumed a serious aspect. It was predicted that there would-be a panic on the Bourse, as a consequence of the unsettled feeling here as to tho outcome of tho affair. The various members of the House of Hapsburg are known to be very tenacious of their dignity to any insult offered to their scions, and as the youthful King married a cousin of the Emperor ot Austria, tho head of that house, tho Austrian Government, is maintaining n resentful attitude, and it is feared the episode will lead to serious complications between Franco and Austria. It is stated that the Pope expresses deep regret at tho situation. Germany will probablv hold aloof from any complications arising out of tho difficulty. President Grevys son-in-law, Daniel "Wilson, ix Deputy from Indre Et Loire, is suspected of having incited the demonstration against King Alfonso on Saturday, and it is reported that the President held a stormy interview with his son-in-law, which resulted in M. Wilson being sept to Italy on a semi-official mission with a view of removing ono possible cause of irritation to tho Spanish Government. MEMOIRS OP A KING. An Erie Touth Wants 1,000 for a Hook Worth 81.50. Erie, Pa., Oct. 3. Three years ago an Associated Press dispatch from Louisville, K, stated that an agent of tho British government wasnegotiating with a lawyer of that city for the delivery of a book, for every copy of which one thousand pounds revVaril was offered by tho Crown. The book was tho "Memoirs of George IV.," containing startling relations of the life of that licentious monarch, and containing alleged proofs that an obscure person ought to bo wearing the crown of Kngland. The memoirs were printed in 1832, and a war of extermination was waged against it by the royal family.- The Louisville lawyer's copy was presumed to be tho last extant, but a few days ago Mr. George Watts, a naturalised citizen of North East, near here, while searching an old newspaper file for legal notice came upon the Associated Press dispatch, and remembered that he had purchased the memoirs and brought them to tho States in 1831. Bansacking an old trunk he unearthed tlie book and has donated the prize to a portege, John Eirsch, of Erie, a leading member of the Young Men's Chribtiuu Association, who mailed a letter to Mr. Gladstone informing him of tho recovery. A BIG ENTERPRISE. A Salt S3(lle;if o and It Proposed Uu (WrrtuUliiur. W.UtfAW, N. Y., Oct 3. A syndicate of New York, Philadelphia and Bonou capatalists havo organized to pipe, if practicable, thu brine of the new salt fields of Western New York to the coal fields on the Lehigh Valley, with the object of utilizing the large banks of coal dust now practically useless in evaporating tho brine into salt Tho proposed works will bo on a mammoth scale, and by doing away with tho expense of coal they hope to secure a monopoly in salt bv low prices. Tho directors are in New York inquiring into tho possibility of the project. The havo summoned A. B. Ensign from Warsaw to compute the expense of a pipe line of 200 miles in length. The Lehign Valley Railroad has ofi'ered its lands if favorable. How tho company would avoid the discoloration of the brine by rust is not known. Salt men hero the scheme as impracticable. ' ii ' ' TAR AND FEATHERS. A Threatened Suit TImt Will Hardly Materialize. BaiDQEronr, Conn., Oct. 3. Tho chances are that Charles C. Houston, who was tarred and feathered in July in Trumbull will never bring his threatened suit against his persecutors. Some time ago lie said that he heard that ho would not get justice from a Trumbull jury, and so thinks a suit would bo unavailing. State Attorney Fessenden said that a gentleman living in Trumbull had written to him btating that Houston did not want to institute a suit and that tho Grand Juror Anson Hall did not desire to issuo any warrants. Tho complaints against the five persons that Houston complains of wero madt out some time ago by the Stato Attornev, but have not been signed by the Grand Juror. Mr. Fesonden declares that if this bo the case he wiU bring theniattcr up in tho Superior Court aud havo it fully investigated. Looking After Their KniployeN. Philadelphia. Oct. 3. Tho Pennsylvania Katlroad Company has opened its hoiibo for tho accommodation of men cm- ployed on tho freight trains, which has been erected within the past year on the lino of tho railroad at Fifty-second street at a cost of $10,000. It is only intended as a temporary stopping place for the men while away from their homes, The houso comprises sleeping rooms, u reading room, a library and smoking room. There i3 also a room whore applicants for position on freight trains aro examined as to their bight, hearing and faculty for distinguishing colors.
