TWO FIRES.
Good Work Done by (lie Kirn Department
In lloth lnstnnce.4
The lire department was called out curly
yesterday morning and again this morning,
and In both Instances prompt and good work
was done, especially lu the second lustauce,
when the flames threatened to sweep (o the
adjoining building and precipitate a confla
gration. It would bo an art of iniustlce
to omit special mention of the part
taken at both fires by the chemical
engine. The nearest Are plug to
the sceno of the first fire, located at the
corner of Coal and Chestnut streets, gave
trot.blc forsoveral minutes, the men at the
lovi r being unable to open tho plug. Mean
while the chemical engine was at work, and
by ;uo time tho water was turned on the fire
was extinguished. In tho second lustauce
the chemical apparatus performed good sor-vltx-s
In keeping the flames checked In a hall
way while thoro was dilllculty in getting
nozzles properly adjusted to tho lines of hose.
Tho first fire started at five o'clock yester
day morning, in tho houso on West Coal
street occupied by tho family of Peter Mus
cawicz. It was caused by a lamp on a stand
in tho front bedroom on the second floor blaz
ing and setting flro to some clothing hanging
on tho wall against which the stand stood.
While tho fire was in progress a couple of
shots wore heard in the house. Tho reports
were duo to the oxplos'.on of caps in the
clothing that was burned. Tho damage to
the dwelling was slight.
Tho hccuuu alarm was sounded at seveu
o'clock this morning. The fire started In a
house located closo to tho South Main street
crossing of tho Lehigh Valler Kallroad Tho
property is owned by C. D. Kaler, of Maha.
noy City, and occupied by Michael Faifcr, a
saloonkeeper. The origin of the fire Is uot
definitely known. The occupants say it
skirted under the floor of tho second story
and was cajised by a stove pipe. The build
ing is a very old and frail one. It was an ico
house before beiug transformed into a saloon
and dwelling. For some time the space under
tho roof was like n roaring furnace. On each
side of tho structure is a framo building, but
me nam ana persistent work of the firemen
saved them. Onco the fire got into the build
ing udjoining on the north side, owned by
Mrs. Mary Brennan and occupied br Stinev
Shlek. a grocer, but the fire laddies fought
Me llrmes gallantly and succeeded in driving
tho flames back into tho Kaler bulldiim.
After about an hour's work the flro was ex
tinguished. Thoweathor was bitterlv cold
and tho lire fighters were covered with ice
when thoy stopped work. The Kaier build
ing was badly damaged, but not to an extent
that it need bo torn down. The Kaler Com
pany has an insurance system of its own and
the loss ia covered. The Brennan nronertv
adjoining was damaged to the extent of
about a hundred dollars.
It was .stated to-day that Mr. Kaler had
been contemplating improvements on the
bulldlug in which the Are started, and it Is
quite likely that they will be undertaken
uuw. The front of the building is to be
brought out to line with the adjoining
properties.

Public Received.
Pnttsvlllo, Jan. 30. Among tho first,
matters brought to the attention of tho court
tiiis morning was the case ot the Borough of
Shenandoah against M. J. Son 11 lan and others.
In which executions were Issued several
weeks ago against Mr. Scanlan, as Tax Col
lector, and bis bondsmen. In pursuance of
the execution a levy was mado upon Mr.
Sea 11 Inn's store in Shenandoah and a public
sale by the Sheriff followed. At the sale two
claims were put In, one by II. V. Titman
for four months' rent at ISO per month, a
total of $200, and another by John Connors
for six months' services as clerk in tho store
at ftO per month, a total of f240. Borough
Solicitor M. M. Ilurko objectod to the latter
claim on the ground that the notice of it to
the Sheriff was defective, aud did not comply
wuntnoActot Assembly or April 0,1872.
Upon this objection being raised the court
appointed J. R. Coyle, Esq., as Auditor to
pass upon the distribution of the proceeds
from the Sheriffs salo in the case.
It was tho presentation of the Auditor's
report that brought up the case this moruiuu.
The report was substantially as follows:
your Orator, after carefully ronldering
all the ovidonce before him, and tho laws ap
plicable to the facts, is of tho opinion that
the claim ot John Connors for $240 is fatally
defective and ho cannot bo allowed a prefer
ence In this distribution of tho funds.
"In the case of II. W. Titman for four
months' rent, at 50 ner month, u total nf
$200, he makes claim up to December 1st.
189S. I am of the onininn thnt tlm rnnt
accruing after the levy is not a lion. I there-
lore auow tne claim to the date of the levy,

Tho letter presented to County Controller
Muldoon by the Taxpayers' Association bear
ing upon the costs of holding inauests and
containing recommendations looking to a cur
tailing or expenses In the Coroner's offlco.
has been freely commented upon, and the
consensus of opluiou is that the Association
is working in tho right direction. Tho in
stances sighted show conclusively that there
has- not been a strict compliance of
the law, and In many cases inquests
have been held with little if any justification
at law. Acting under tho advice of his legal
adviser Controller Muldoon has already held
up one or two apparently excessive hills nre.
sented by Deputy Coroners. This action was
taken previous to the receipt of the letter
from the Taxpayers' Association, and is an
indication that the present Controller is de
termined U allow no Imposition unon the
county, and that all bills will be rigidly
scrutinized, with a view to guarding the in
terests 01 tiotn tto couuty and the lust
claimants.
The export accountant from Phlladalnhfa.

Will Pass tho Houso.
Washington, Jan. SO. The senate will
devote practically all of the time of
this welt to the consideration of th
peace treaty. Senator Allison, chair
man of the committee on appropria
tions, aays he will not Interfere at any
time with the consideration of the
treaty by asking to have appropria
tion bills taken up, and as a conse
quence the treaty will have complete
right of way.
This week will see the close of the
memorable debate, both In executive
session and In open senate, as the vote
la set for 3 o'clock next Monday. Sena
tor Berry will speak tomorrow, Sena
tor Spooner on Wednesday, Senator
Rawlins on Thursday, Senator Money
on Friday and Senator Chilton on Sat
urday. These speeches will be based
upon the various resolutions on the
general question of expansion and will
be delivered In open session. They
will, however, be practically devoted to
the treaty and will afford senators an
opportunity to say openly what they
would say In secret session If the reso
lutions were not under consideration.
There will be an effort to get the
speeches In before 2 o'clock each day.
In order to permit the closing- of the
doors at 2 o'clock. In accordance with
the unanimous agreement to that ef
fect, when tho treaty will be taken up
formalIyand the executive considera
tion of the subject proceeded with. Sen
ator Bacon and Senator Mason both
announce their Intention of continuing
their efforts to get action upon their
respective resolutions before the vote
Is taken upon the resolution to ratify
the treaty, and hope to succeed some
time during- the week.
The friends of the treaty are still
most sanguine of success, and most
of them announce that they will ac
cept no compromises. Others express
a willingness to accept some such reso
lution as that of Senator Sullivan.
Those professing to know say it Is the
policy to force the treaty to a vote be
fore taking: action on any compromise
proposition, and that It the treaty
should by any chance be beaten to
move to reconsider and then to con
alder the question of accepting; some
compromise like the Bacon resolutions
before final adjournment In March. Al
most a month of the session will be left
after the vote ot next Monday, so that
tf the senate should prefer to accept
the treaty with a resolution of con
struction and Instruction to postponing
action for an extra session It could da
so.
Interest centers In the army 1)111 In
the house. Tho final vote will be taken
at 3 p. m. tomorrow. Prior to this the
debate will be under the five minute
rule In the main, although sufllclent
time has been reserved to give Mr.
Bailey and some of the leaders an op
portunity for extended speeches. Chair
man Hull, of the military committee,
Is confident the bill will pass, saying
that the Republican disaffection will
not exceed eight, while several affirm
ative votes will come from the Demo
cratic side. The opposition will direct
Its efforts towards having the bill re
committed. "With the army bill disposed of, the
housCswlll turn its attention to the Im
portant river and harbor bill and then
to the Military academy appropriation
bill. The river and harbor bill prob
ably will have Wednesday, with two
hours' debate on a side. The Military
academy bill is not likely to take more
time than Is required to read it through.
The Hawaiian bill is the most Import-.
ant piece of general legislation which
will be urged to a hearing, although
Us friends may let It go over until next
week.
