DESTROYED BY FIRE
Ellis’ Furniture Warehouse Mys-
teriously Burned.
Heroic Work of the Firemen and
SpeclalonuA Laps of SSOOO
Partly Insured-
Fire destroyed the furniture warehouse
of Arthur Ellis last night, on Fourth street,
near Boundarv. The total. loss on stock
and building is estimated at $5,500, with
insurance at $3,8000.
The fire broke out shortly after 10 o’clock
in the south end of the second floor, as
nearly as can be ascertained. Mr. Ellis and
daughter were attending the theater and
Mrs. Ellis had retired, when she was
aroused by a gentleman who first saw the
flames issuing from the window of the
warehouse, which was about 100 feet from
Mr. Ellis’ house. He inmnediately sounded
the alarm, to which engine companies No.
2 and Columbia No, I responded and were
soon playing a heavy stream on the burn
ing buildmg. Mr. Ellis was called from the
theater and was driven to the scene, but
the building was a mask/of flames.
A short "distanoeijhe warehouse was
thesmblég 1,, hit; «it " ke t three valu
ablehogsbsfihfl“hsfihfifi otpwifiims. all of
whieh'wem‘xemedmmfintg. ~ egl‘ar-aof
the flames lighted the entire east side of the
city, which, together with the alarm. took
immense crow sof people to the scene. The
zealous firemen, with the assistance of
some of the spectators worked heroically
to save the stock. They carried out piece
after piece until nearly the entire lower
floor was cleared. 0n the two upper floors
were stored the more valuable material.
Hundreds of chairs of all designs and
stacks of mattresses were stored and all
totnléy destroyed. Dense volumns of smoke
rolle from the eaves, but the lower floor
was pretty well cleared before the firemen
were forced to retreat, which they did only
when the heat was so intense that further
work was impossible.
The building was a three story frame. .
and was located close to Mr. Ellis’ home. i
The origin of the tire is unknown, and Mr.
Ellis can advance no theories for the cause.
The loss on the building is estimated at
SISOO, With insurance of SSOO in the Ameri
can Central. of which Archibald Adams is
the agent, add S3OO in the Lanceshire with
A. W. Wisner as agent.
Policies of SISOO each were held in the
Palatine Insurance Co. by Mr. Adams, and
in the Imperial of London by Mr. Wisner.
The furni ure saved by the firemen will
greatly reduce the losses. T. C. Van Epps
kindly extended to Mr. Ellis the use of
space in the Union block for temporary
storage purpose, to which the saved furni
ture was conveyed.
Cleveland’s ifiinstrels.
A Denver paper says: The burnt-cork
artists at the Tabor Grand last night drew
alarge audience. The theater was more
than filled. There is a great deal ina
name, considered theatrically. It was no
doubt the name of Cleveland, the propri
etor of the show, that drew forth such an
audience. He is better known to fame
probably. than any member of his com
pany With one exception. Not that the
company is unknown, but then Cleveland
is familiar all over the countr as the Bar
num of the minstrel world. gob Slavin is
ahost in himself, and the singing of the
“Tamal Man” was a. treat as of yore.
‘ There are several clever melody singers in
the company. Harry Delane was recalled
for the Islilynmathctic singing of "Give My
love to other Dear,” and Mr. Gray who
has an excellent bass voice, received a like
compliment for his sinfiing of “The Lone
Grave.” Among the of. mm who were well
received were (1 Latell, Henry Woodson
and‘Charles Sheffer. These minstrels will
applezr at the Olympia theater on Friday
mg .
The Noss Jollities.
The Democrat and Sentinel, of Kitten
ning, Pa., says: The wonderful Nose Fam
ily gave anotherlof their unparalled serio
comic entertainments to a crowded house
last Saturday evening. When this gifted
family were here one year ago, we thought
there was no room for improvement, their
performance giving such universal satisfac
tion in their variety and their excellence;
but we are free to admit that the entertain
ment on last Saturday evening excelled
anything of the kind ever géesented to our
pleasure-seeking people. ithout dispar
agement to any of the older ones, we were
justified in sayifig that Bertha is a jewel,
and little Miss ay is a. star. The J ollities
will appear at Olympia theater on Thurs
day evening.
Greasing vs. Bathing.
From the Philadelphia Record: A noted
medical practitioner once told :the writer
that there was no use of bathing. “You
might as well grease yourself all over,”
said he.” “Look at the noble Comanche.
Where will you find a more lithe and lusty
fiecimen of agile muscular manhood?
e never battles. He hates the water with
as keen an antipathy as does a mad dog.
Take my advice, young( man. Imitate the
Comanche. What he nows, he knows by
experiencefl'ust as a bear knows that his
glue is on ry land,and as a beaver knows
e can live in the wet.

AWFUL DISASTER.
Families Burned to Death in a
Brooklyn Fire.
A Terrible Scene Early this Morn
ing—" Frantic Wonlen
and Children.
NEW YORK, Nov. 17.—A half dozen or
more lives were lost early this morning by
a fire in a row of frame buildings in Brook—
lyn.‘ The flames were discovered at2:2o
o’clock, on the third floor of the four-story
,frame building No. 120 Nostrend avenue.
iThe buildings were occupied chiefly by
i families of mechanics. The flames spread
with great rapidity; in a half hour four or
live buildings were blazing at once. Harry
and Edward Ashworth' were rescued by
fireman,from the top floor in No. 120.
Both were badly burned. A ‘butcher
named Schrabel, who lived on the second
floor of No. 120 rushed into the street with
a. child in his arms. He said his wife and
one of his children, his mother-in-law,
Mrs. Schellenberger, and her two children,
Minnie and Willie, 15 and 17 years
old, respectivel‘y, were unable to escape,
and were burne to death. He ran up and
down the street in an excited way, calling
on the firemen to save them. The wildest
excitement existed amoni the people in
the neighborhocd, and t e streets were
filled with half-dressed crying women and
frantic men. At 3 o’clock the whole row,
consisting of twenty frame houses, was in
flames, and every available engine in
Brooklyn was fighting the fire. At this
writing it is impossible to tell now many
lives are lost, but one entire family is
missing, and no trace can be found of five
members of the Schrabel family.
Improving our Rivers.
l PORTLAND, Nov. 17.——Caplain Symons,
United States engineers, has received from
the photographer connected with the party
at work on the improvements of rhe Upper
Columbia. 9. series of very fine photo
§raghs of Priest’s. Cabinet and Rock
sland Rapids. They gave a very good
idea of those obstructions to navigation
and the surrounding country, showing
clearly the rocks which obstruct the chan
nel and the men at work removing them.‘
Cabinet rapids are navigable at low water,
but the rocks which are being blasted away
cause whirls and eddies which render it
impossible for boats to pass them at high
water. When this is completed there will
be nothing in the way of navigating the
river up to Okanozan county during high
water. as Cabinet rapids and Priest 5 rap
ids with the improvements made, will be
navigable at high water. Captain Symons
says the idea of improving these rapids
so as to be navigable at low water, without
building locks and wing dams is chimeri
cal. He has strongly recommended that a
board of engineers be appointed to con
sider the improvement of the whole Upper
Columbia.
The Convention [or San Fransclsco. _‘
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 17.——When a des
patch was received from St. Louis yester
day announcing that the trans-continental
association refused to endorse the fifty
dolmr mm [guaranteed by the Southern Pa»
aim: to the elewtes to the national con
ventions, if hed in San Francfsco, Vice
President Stubbs said: ”Our guarantee of
a fifty~dollar rate holds good. The St.
Louis despatch means that the members
of the associatien voted against the rate as
telegraphed from here, without consider
ing the full proposition. Much can be
done between the time of announcement
and the time of holding the convention
and the guarantees oi the Southern anti
Union Pacific roans are sulfioient for pres
ent purposes.”
Coal from Wail-Ingtou.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov.l7.——.iames Ward
ner, of the Big Blue Canyon Coal mines,
of Bellingham Bay, Wash., has arrived
here. “There was never before such an
outlook for Ghee?) coal,” said Mr. Ward
ner. “There has een much more mined
this year than last on the Pacific coast.
Vessels coming here for wheatare bringing
a large amount of coal. Last year there
were many strikes in Washington and in
British Columbia mines. This year those
mines have been most of the time produc
ing steadily. This, with otherreasons, has
caused coal to be cheap, and it will be
cheaper yet this winter.”, Dealers say that
the coal which last winter sold for sl4 and
sls per ton, is now worth but $lO. This isl
for the best article, and from that prices‘
run down to $7.50, retail rates. ‘

MILLIONS LOST.
1A lernble Flre Raging 1n the
Clty of St. Louis
The Firemen Exhausted and. the
Flames Getting Beyond
The" Control.
ST. LOUIs, Nov. 17.——The most disastrous
fire which visited _St. Louis in many years,
started in the furnace room of the large
dry goods house of Perry dz. Gentles, south
west corner of Broadway and Franklin
avenue, at about 4:30 this morning. The
watchman immediately turned in the
alarm and then the second and third with
in ten minutes. The flames spread so
rapidly that a. general alarm was given
which brought out the entire department,
but before the engines arrived Perry &
Gentles, Sorrenieldt’s millinery com
pany and the mammoth establish
ment, known as the famous shoe
and clothing company occuyging the entire
four-story buildings on roadway, be
tween Franklin Ave. and Morgan street,
were in flames. Within two hours all
the walls had fallen and nothing was
left but ashes and bent and twist
ed iron girders. Opposite is the im
mense dry goods store of D. 0. Crawford
& Co. The heat was so intense that the
whole front of Crawford’s store, including
a display of windows, and all show cases
m the front part of the store from top to
bottom. were badly damaged by heat, caus
ing a probable damage of SSOOOO. On
Franklin Ave., oplfiosite Perry & éentles, a
whole row from roadway to the alley,
were badlly damaged. Adjoininfi Craw
ford’s on roadway the following usiness
houses were burned out: cDonalds

safely evacuated the buil ing on Franklin
avenue, just west of Penny dc Gentle’s dry
goods store. Thomas Hodson was dam
aged by smoke and water to the extent of
$30,000; insured. The total loss will prob
ably exceed a million dollars, but re iable
figures are not obtainable at present. Two
firemen were badly injured. At 10 o’clock
the lire was spreading in a northward di
rection on Broadway to some dwelling
houses. if the wind does not
abate very soon the firemen who
are already exhausted by the terrible light
they had. 1t is feared wil be unable to do
very much towards checking the spread of
the flames. While this fire was burning,
the handsome residence of Captain John

the city, was destroyed by lire with a house
full ofcostly furniture. The loss will ex

Special to the Tribune.
TACOMA, Nov. 17.—Senator John B. Al
len and tax-Governor Miies C. Moore hold
the fort this morning in the Ledger, in
about four or five columns of interesting
reading matter. Allen denies that he
stood in with Squire’s friends to elect the
Seattle statesman to congress the first and
second time. Err-Governor Moore says
that the senator sold out to Squire and his
friends at the first election after promising
tolgo for General Sprague, and continues:
oamount of rhetoric, no amount of
sophistry, no amount of ali'ected indigna
tion, can divert the attention of the public
from these naked facts. Undeterred by
the thunders of senatorial rhetoric, I
regretfully but emplhatically assert that in
the test of trial he as proven to measure
less in stature than a man of honor.
On the second night after the first elec
tion, Allen sent a friend to request me to
come to his headquarters. After some hes
itation, 1 went there wlth Senator Fair
weather, and found Mr. Allen and his
brother Hiram together. Mr. Allen re
qluesteda private interview which I de
c med. He then began in a studied. halt
ing manner, in the sophistical style of
which he is master, to make a statement of
his case, which is practically reproduced in
his letter to the Ledger, after two years’
practice, and which has the same fatal de
fect as the original.
‘ I listened patiently to Mr. Allen and
reg/lied:
‘ r. Allen, that is a very ingeniously
construed statement; very creditable to
your intellect. It has, however, one fatal
defect. It is not the truth. Now, Mr.
Allen, if {lon are through. I will talk for
awhile. on will perhaps remember that
ten years ago there was a republican con
vention in Walla Walla county, composed
of sixty members. Yourself and Tom
Brents were aspiring‘to the position of del—
egate in congress. ii‘ty-nine of these del
egates were for Brents; one for Allen.
on will, perhaps, remember that I was
that deluded individual. I mention this
to recall to your mind the fact that when I
espousedarour cause in Walla Walla coun
tg you di not have many friends. From
L at day to this, in season and out of sea—
son, sometimes with more zeal than discre
tion, I have fought your battles until now
you are a Umted States senator, full
liedged. Tonight I will serve notice on
you that from this time forth our po’
itical aths must be apart. You will
never fie able to say that I desert
ed you when vou needed friends.
I desert you in the he -day of your power.
My idol is broken. Wyliat I had imagined
prure gold has turned to common clay.
on have betrayed me and you have be
trayed other old—time, steadfast friends.
You have achieved a temporary success. It
cannot be lasting, and you wi l derive no
comfort or satisfaction from it, because
you have obtained it at the prize of treach
eri and deceit. I have no further favors to
as of you, and if you find my name ap
pendedto a letter ora petition you will
glasse‘regard it as aforgery. I say these
arsh things more in sorrow than in anger;
I say them because they are true. A man
does not lightly break up afriendship such
as ours has been. but [could not sut 'er the
indiglnity you have put upon me in these
last ays in silence and retain any degree
of self respect.
Mr. Allen said time would convince me
of my mistake, to which I replied that I
hoped it might. Thisclosed tle interview.
During the two years that have elapsed
I have availed myself of every opportunity
to get light on the disgracefu betrayal of
General Spra he and his friends by John
B. Allen. Vlfith the exception of less than
halfa dozen who were parties to the coin
bination deal, or acquiesced in it, there is a
singular unanimity of opinion regarding
the baseness of the surrender. The two
senators have 'had apparently friendly
terms since then. During the last contest
at Olympia, resulting in the re-election of
Squire, Allen was posing in his favorite
character of apparent neutrality, but, in
the language 0 another, he was found
holding the ladder while Squire climbed
into the senate a second time. while con
tinuing to display his affection for Pierce
county and its candidates.
Governor Moore also says: My quarrel
with John B. Allen has no interest of sig‘
niticauce beyond the fact that a man tried
in the balance by one friend and found
wanting, is liable to be found too light in
other times and under similar strains. The
man who is treacherous to a life-long
1 friend is liable to prove unfaithful to other
1 friends.
“The Straight Tip,” company last night
was the best all around company that has
appeared in Olympia this year. There
were more good actors in it than in any
organization ever seen here. In a large
city there is no danger of “The Straig it
Tip" company failing to crowd the house
and it is obe regretted that the Olyrnlpia
theater was not well filled last night. he
play is based upon doing the races and is
so well constructed that it is fullol’rousing
fun from beginning to end. Both Pow
ers and Daly, the leading? men of the com
pany are two of the ceverest specialty
actors of the day. The farmer's repre
sentation of Larmencita, the Spanish
danseuse in her famous skirt dance was
limmense. The Clipner quartette of sin?—
ers in the company ( id some remarkab v
and singing. The fun never legs in “A
gtraight rip.” Onelaughable novelty suc—
ceeds another so quickly that the an ience
is kept on the tip toe o expectation. The
next play on Thursday, night will be the
NOB 5 Jollities. by an exceedingly clever
musical family of eight persons followed
by Cleveland’s note minstrels on Friday
night. “Dr. Bill” which was to be given
here next Monday night, will not be pre
sented, which is to be regretted. It was a
reigning sensation in New York and is one
of the best of the recent new plays.
