DEATH BY FIRE.
ADnlnth (Minn.) Hotel llurnort Ttrn Far ons Known to Ilnvo rcrUhed, nnil It It Thought Others Have Mot tlio Burnt JTnto. Dui.utii, Jan. 14. Tho Hotel Ht Louis burned Thursday, and at least two lives wore lost liow many more is not known, but it Is thought not less tlian five persons must bave perished in the flames. Tho thermometer wns 13 below zero. The flro started from a. leaky gas meter In tho bascmont, Tho structure was built In 1883 and was dry as tlndor. Tho fire caught taoar the elevator shaft, and In an In stant tho flumes wero through tho roof. In sixty minutes from tho tlmo tho flro broito out .not a bit of ths butluing was deft standing. Tho hotel and contents -wero completely destroyed. Tho walls all fell inward, thus proving not dan gerous to tho firemen. Tho worst was heaved at tho start and West Superior was called upon for aid. An engine .and hose company soon arrived from that place. Tho hotel was very popular and was filled with guests. As soon as fire was discovered tho brother of Proprietor Michaud and tho clovk rushed through tho house, bursting in doors and .awakening guests who wero asleep. Two of tho latter porlshcd In tho Jlatncs. They were brakeman Charles Preston and Baggageman Hau--dry, both employed on the night passenger train of tho Duluth, .South Shoro & Atlantic railroad, run ning between Duluth and Marquette. They ato breakfast and retired to gether. Humors of tho loss of the rail road men in tho flames were hoard all day, but not until 7:!!0 Friday, when the men should have reported for duty on tho outgoing train, was the horrible truth realized. Others must have perished it is -thought. Many got out of tho building on various lire escapes with which tho building was provided. Others were taken out by the firemen down their ladders. It is reasona bly certain that some women 'Perished on the third floor, also somo bargo men. Prod Iicnnclt, who i-oomcd in the hotel, stumbled over a prostrato body, which he was unablo .to save. His singed hair and eye brows and reddened face tell of the severity of his experience. One of tho scrub women is missing and she is thought to have perished. The olevator boy, answering to the name of Louis, was also reported missing, but it is believed that he is not burned. Tho night clerk reports having aroused several people, but one large man he was unable to awaken, although he jiounried and kicked him. One of the most pathetic incidents of "the conflagration was tho death of a moblc dog belonging to the little bon of tho proprietor. After the fire broke out and when the halls were denso with smoke the dog ran to tho room where the boy was playing and begau -to bark furiously. Tho boy thus -warned opened the door and ran out -and was carried from the burning bnilding, but the dog was overcome by 'the smoke and died in the hallway. One of tho ladies rooming at the ho tel was making her escape through a 'hall, carrying her sealskin cloak in one hand and her purse containing SOU in the other. In her flight through tho dark .hall sho stumbled over a little child that had been lost In tho excitement, and, dropping her valuables, carried tho youngster In safety to the street. It will be impossible to begin the search for the bodies for several hours, probably not till Saturday afternoon. "The hotel building belonged to the Boston Realty company, a corporation organized under the laws of the state of Maine. It was valued at 150,000 and insured for 520,000. Tho St. Louis was five stories high on Superior street and six stories on Michigan. It had a frontage of 100 feet on either street. The corner .-storo front was occupied by the American Express company and freight and ticket office of tho Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railroad. Their loss is total. Tho Pioneer Fuel company's office was in tho storo under tho hotel, also sev oral others with desk room. The losses hero wero total.

World' Fnlr Way and Mean Committee Drive Hard lliircnin- with Holder ol Tnrloun l'rlvlliigos A 111; Income Se cured from This Source. Chicago, Jan. 14. Tho world's fait committee on ways and means grant tho " Guido - Book" conces sion. This will close one of tho most romnrkablu financiering periods probably evor known in public ufTniw In all soventy-flv- concessions havo ''eon granted by tho committee. Not less than 2,000 applications for concessions havo been considered and rejected. Somo of tho rejected schemes had merit, but most of them arc classed under tho gonernl form of "fakes." Many moro wero advertising schemes, without tho 'slightest interest to visitors. But one in twcnty-ilvo of tho projects brought boforo tho coin uilttco had any good rcasou for being there. In tho estimates of resources from franchises nnd concessions 53,000,000 has been given as tho not profit to tho fair. This is tho estimate Fcrd W. Peck, chairman of tho finance commit tee, maltcs. Mr. Pock undoubtedly wishes to bo on tho safo side, and so named tho bottom figure. Tho opinion was expressed that on the basis of an attendanco of 80,000,000 tho fair Is likely to get from tho concessionaires ncaror SO.000,000 than $3,500,000. These estimates havo been made cither by tho concessionaires or by world's fair people, who havo worn out many pencils before arriving at satisfactory results. If thoy err it is on tho side of conservatism. Their grand total is: SouncE. Amount. Restaurants, Inns, etc J2,!00.000 Intramural electric railway 400,000 Steamboats 150,000 Launches, basins and lagoons. Wheel cha'r.s , Ilarro sliding railway Clow sanitary concession Conltey's catalogues Qmdo book 75,000 iSO.000 100,000 450,000 509,000 75,000 1.200.000 Midway plalsance. , Miscellaneous 100,003 Total Ofilclal cotlinalei.. ...f.i,800,00J ... VOJ.OW Probable excess 2,300,000 The miscellaneous includes all such concessions as tho soda water, pop corn nnd the llko. Thoy will probably exceed that sum, but the excess can be added to other estimates, which appear at first glance too largo. When one gets to the various shows along Midway plalsance and begins figuring on percentages, calculations become difficult. The business of con cessions mentioned can be approxi mately computed, with tho experiences of other expositions as a standard, but with those on Midway plaisance it is moro a matter of conjecture. What would be a good exposition in itself un der ordinary circumstances is stretched along the plalsance a pleasant place to spend a day in sight-seeing when all Is ready. The curious things covqJ a wide range, from the tenptive balloon to a reproduction of St. Peter's at Home, from the original drawings by Michael Angclo. Turkish, German, Australian, Indian and other villages, pavilions, panoramas, etc., arc to be there. From all of them the exposition will collect twenty-live cents for every dollar of admissions and from 10 to 15 per cent, on tho merchandise sold. Counting in tho great Ferriss wheel, at tho inventor.'s estimate of S4OO.O0O, it is believed that tho exposition will gather in a tributo of a round million from the plaisance. Then add 5200,000 from tho Llbby glass works concession, foi which a handsome structure is now being built, and the plaisance contri bution becomes 81,200,000. The glass concession includes tho sale of every thing made of glass. HURT IN A SMASH-UP. Illghteon 1'rrtons injured (n n Collision llctwren Trains ill Chicago. CmcAoo, Jan. 14.

Hntnllt Mndo l'urmuicnt I'nrtal Del ejruto to Uio United Mitten What Ills Appointment Mcniis-tStiitemcut oT tho McOlynu Cusp. Washington, Jan, 10. A cablo mes ango has been received by Mgr. Satolll as follows: "Komi:, .Inn. H. Tlio apostolus delegation Is permanently established In tho United States undyouurocoullrmcd ns tlrst delegate, "O'CONNKM.." Archbishop Satolll, pcrmnnent apos tolic delegato in tho United States authorizes the publication of tho fol lowing statement in, regard to tho popo's action in tho caso of Dr. Mc Glynn: "On thn very day of tho reconciliation of Dr. Mcdlynn with tho church public notice was given of It, with tho statement that Mgr. Satolll had absolved from censuro and recon ciled Dr. McOlynn by special powor for tho purpose requested from and granted by tho holy father; and moreover that tho absolution had been given becauso Dr. McGlynn had wil lingly accepted tlio conditions laid down by tho uoiy latucr ns necessary and sutllelcnt. "This Information so expressed should havo suniecd to satisfy everyono with tho reconcili ation carried out by authority specially dele gated by the holy fnther and with the condi tions called for by tho holy father. Then It Is well to make sovornl ictlectlons: "1. 'fuatns soon ns It was understood that these conditions were compiled with every sin cere Catholic should at once havo felt himself bound In consclcncolo recognize .that all hau been dono lu tho caso that was expedient nnd In accord with tho spirit of tho Catliollo church "2. That tho selection of tho proper tlmo and the manner to glvo public Information of tho conditions belonged to tho authority of tho church and when tho holy father should II nd It opportune after tho reception of tho documents, which wero Immediately forwarded. "It Everyono could sco that tho lmmcdlato publication of those conditions was for pruden tial reasons omitted to avoid talk that might oppose tho good done by doing away with tho calamity which has so long weighed upon u prlcst'by reconcllllng htm with mother church. If this result had not been obtained, and If this wise silence has boon unacceptable to uny one, it must bo ascribed simply to premature exaction. "Tho conditions wero In this form: Dr. Mc Glynn has presented a brief statement of his opinions on moral and economic matters, and It was Judged not contrary to tho doctrino con stantly taught by tho church and ns recently continued by tho holy father In tho encyclical IJerum Novarum.' Also It is here by publicly made known that Dr. Mc Glynn, besides professing his ndlier ence to all the doctrines and teachings of tho Catholic church, has expressed his regret, say ing that he would be tho llrat to regret It for any act or word of his that may havo seemed lacking in the respect duo to ecclesiastical au thority, and he thereby intends to repair, as far as ho can, any offenso w hich may havo been given to Catholics. "Finally Dr. McOlynn has, of his own free will, declared and promised that within the limits of a not long period of tlmo he will go to Roino in tho spirit and intention which arc be coming to a good Catholic and a priest. "Then it is well to noto how deplorable it-is that this reconciliation should havo been dis cussed ns It has been in newspapers, in such inanner that private and lay persons havo dared to pass upon it harsh reproach and ill considered censure. That anyone should havo dared to speak of tho popo's authority over tho church in America as foreign is a bcntiment and an utterance enormously erroneous and scandalous. "Tho action of tho church and of tho holy see in the things that belong to it is superior to every man-made boundary universal and proper to every country in which there may bo Cath olics. For which reason it seems to us exceed ingly opportune to recommend due respect In every case to ecclesiastical authority, and be fore ull to that holy see, as well as to that of the council ot Baltimore, inasmuch us it is for bidden to treat ecclesiastical matters and questions through tlio medium of journalism. "Much moro deplorablo is it that persons, both ecclesiastics and laymen (who wish to ap pear as blncerely Catholic), mako bad use of Journalism with violent and mendacious at tacks, beyond all bounds of respect and charity, against venerable prelates, whoso virtue ana learning, whose rectitude ot character aud un questioned and unqftcsttonablo love toward tho churcn and the supremo pontiff, never unaccom panied by sincere love of country, mako them deservedly the subjects of the special predilec tion of tho holy father and of uni ersal esteem." New Youk, Jan. 10. On the an nouncement that the pope had estab lished a permanent delegation in the United States aud hud named Mgr. Satolll the first delegate, Archbishop Corrigan prepared a statement which his secretary. Father Conolly, gave to the press. The statement says among other things: "We all recelvo this decision of the holy father as wo recelvo all other decisions cml uating from him, with tho profoundest rever ence, respect aud obedience, lleforo the holy sco acted there might have been room for a dif ference of opinion; now nono exists. For my own part I gladly receive and welcomo the news In question, always supposing it to bo au thentic" "This is a complete answer to those who op posed Mgr. Satolll's authority. The establish ment ot a delegation hero will havo a most ben eficial effect on tho church In America. It will maintain peace and harmony and facili tate the settlement of controversy among Catholics, which heretofore had to bo f fcrred to Home. It practically organizes In perfect form, tho Catholic church In America, Instituting, as it were, for moro Important church affairs, homo rule. Wo will have at homo a branch of the supremo ecclesias tical court. A fur;her result will be that tho immediate working and thoughts of tho holy see will bo brought moro prominently before the Amorican people, who from observation will sco that thu Catholic church in its highest notion is thoroughly In harmony with the principles of our democracy and all that is good, useful and clovating In modern progress." Albany, N. Y Jan. 10. Rev. Dr, Frederick Z. Rookor, who has been ap pointed by tho popo to bo secretary of the apostolic delegation of Mgr. Satol li, and who is now on his way to America, is ouo of tho brightest of Albany's young men. It was. in this city that ho received his preliminary educa tion. Ho was born in Now York city in 1801 and removed here with his parents eight years later, llo gradu ated in tho public schools of this city. Rome, Jan. 1(1.
