GLICK IN A HELL OF FIRE. The Lolanil House, Syracuse, N. Y., Completely Destroyed. Soveral People Known to Have Lost Their Lives, Some by Jumping and Others Burned Alive WITHIN SIGHT OF THE HORROR STRICKEN SPECTATORS. The Fire In Discovered Shortly After Midnight ,,,,,1 Not Until It Hud M:ule Siilltvlunt Headway Tluit It ConM Not lie Checked Meddler. Driven From the Hulhling In Lew than Ten Min utes Some Awful Picture Presented to the Crowd. Syracuse, N. Y., Oct, 17. The Le land hotd, one of the largest in central New York, caught fire at 12:30 Thurs day morning and burned down. The hotel was built two years ago for $'.uQ, 000. It was six stories high and con tained 139 rooms. The fire started some where in the basemant, either near or in the kitchen, and very Bpeedily over mastered control. All attention thereupon was concen trated on the rescue of the gue sts of the house. Tn addition to tho staircases, there were iron tire escapes on the out side and ropes in all the rooms. By these most of the guests escaped, bat some were burned to death just how many likely never will be known ex actly. Several bodies have been recov ered and a large number of people are Btill missing. The bodies recovered are those who jumped and were dashed to pieces on the sidewalk. Some jumped into nets and escaped with broken limbs. Home were rescued by ladders. The Olob9 hotel adjacent caught tire from tho Leland at 5 a. m., but no live.i were lost in it. 'Iho flames in tho Leland had gained great headway before they were discov ered, t-'cores of guests who had been awakened by the bells or ringing of the electric bells rushed out of their room i into the halls, only to find them full of nmoko. Some of those who got out of their rooms just escaped by ths stair case. Tho halls resounded with the cries and shrieks of frightened mo:i and women. Although the gas was burning in all tho ' halls the light could not bo Feed more than a few feet off on account of the smoke. Dozens of men and women who had fallen on the floor and stairs overcome with the intense heat and smoke were drnggod to the exits. Capt. Qnigley, of the night watch, had responded to the alarm of fire with about twenty-five men, who did excellent service in res cuing guests. In less than ten minutes after the alarm had been given the rescuers were driven from the Inside of the building, and tho only means of assistance was from the outside. Five women employed at tho hotel are known to lie do:id, all from injuries received by jumping. Many people could be seen at the windows and were overcome before tho eyes of the horror stricken spectators. Tho time finally came when the cries were ceased and nothing could lie seen in tho great structure but seething, moaning, billows of fire as they mount ed above the highest cornices. The tales of hair-breadth escape) by those who did succeed in getting out, would till- a volume. The New York Central depot.

Who Will He the Lucky Mn to Secure the Appointment? Washington, Oct. 17. The extra session question being suspended-tem-porarily, at least the only subject left for speculation in Washiugtoa is tha name of the probable successor of the late Jnstice Miller. There, u some in- Ntorest nl w in tilling the assistant secre taryship of the treasury, made vacant by Mr. Latcholler's appoiatuunt to Portugal, but tha sapix-rae court posi tion is naturally more prominent in gossip. There is a general agreement of opin ion that the president will wish to nom inate Attorney General Miller, it baing known that Mr. Miller was seriously thought of last yoar when a vacancy was caused by the death of Justice Woods. Attorney General Miller was at that time known to but compara tively few senators and there had not been time for his ability as the law officer of the cabinet to become known. For that reason it was thjught best to send -in Judge Brewer's nama. The manner in which the attorney genera? has handled the. business of the govern ment before the supremo court his stamped him as a lawyer of tho highest grade, and fixed his standing with the members of tne court, as well as with the senator.; who practice beiope them. Whatever doubts were once feit and expressed regarding Mr. Miller's con firmation have been removed by the wi-e policy ot allowing him to show what he wa-t made of. While Mr.. Mil ler's nomination would surprise no oae, there are imiuy who believe that Secre tary Noble iiriy bo the man. Judge Greiham, of In. liana, is also mentioned. The point that a successor to Judge Miller must be taken from the circuit of states over which the late justice pre sided i-i not a good one against eit'.ur of the lndianianH or tho Missouriau named as that custom has been disregarded in oeveral iiista.ic.es. notably iu tlu caaa of Chief Justice Fuller. Tho treasury department has granted permission to the local authorities of Keokuk, Iowa, to use the United Statei court house iu which to place the body of Justice Mill-;r in state, in order that It may bo viewed by the populace.

Scheme on Poot to lteinodcl the Dominion Tariff Shortly, Ottawa, Oct. 17. Thero appears to have been, as if by mutual understand ing, a general attack, with threats of re taliation, aaiiiBt the Uuited States upon the pai t t.f the conservative press of Canada all along the line. Tho govern' Uient press of the Dominion is sluw to take any important step wheva the pol icy of the administration is concerned, except under instructions from Ottawa, and it is generally believed that the mandate Iihs gone forth to prepare the people ot Canada for such a remodeling of the Dominion tariff during the ap proaching session of parliament as wid meet the McKiuley bill on its own ground.
