The Incuse is a three-story brick tene

by a grocery, and the upper stories
being arranged with front and rear
apartments. There were seven families
in the house. The only means of exit
tor the people was by a stairway, nar
row and dark, whicn runs directly up
through the center of the building. On
either side of the tenement are houses
which lower a story above the house

He could see that the stairway was
being rapidly burned away. Still there
was not a sign of rile from tie people
in the house. To enter the house meant
death. The only hop e tor those within
was iv arousing iheni by shouts, in
which the policeman was aided by those
who had been attracted oy the the.
Suddenly to the noise of the dames, as
they burned away the stairway, there
was added an awl ul cry. One of ihe
tenants in the upper part of the house
lias been aroused and stood at the
window of tire fifth Hour. It was Mrs.
Eberwein, who lived alone on that lloor.
in another moment llseie was not a

did not contain the wild and frightened

of them appealing for aid.
"The faces in the windows were

Friedman, his wife Lena and his three
young children. There were also two
boardeis— Annie Applebiat.tweiiiy-t-.vo,
and Lena Mitchell, twenty -four.
Nathan Friedman was lirst aroused
by ihe smoke and noise. The room in
which he, his wile and baby slept was
already tilled with smoke. "'Clutching
the baby in l-is arms, ami forgetting all
else, he sprang to (lie window and de

She leaped from ihe window and fell

Annie Appleblat was lying dead on
the lloor. Her face was black. She had
her dress and shoes on. Evidently she
had been aroused and had stopped to
don her clothing, and had died before
finishing her task.
On the four floor, also in the rear,
weie found the remaining victims of
the tire. There Mrs. Kiilian, a widow,
aged seventy years, lived with her son
Jacob and George Levy, her grandson.
Mrs. Kiilian and her sou were dead
in bed. The grandson was oa the floor

Mrs. Friedman was conveyed to the

but a short time. The damage to the
house will not exceed $2,000.

Important Meeting Today.
Chicago, Oct. 30.— Representatives*!
the I'hicago—St. Paul lines will leave
this eily tonight for St. Paul, where
they will hold a conference with' (ien
eral Passenger Agent llibbard. of the
Son line, relative to the emigrant ques
tion. The meeting will be a com in na
tion of liie one had in Chicago during
the past week, at which nothing definite
was arranged. The TruiiK lilies and
Western loads have agreed on the dif
ferentials to be allowed to the Canadian
Pacific. Hitherto that road has claimed
a differentia! of $7.60 on business going
over its line to the Atlantic seaboard.
It moreover took reduced rates.' and
calculated its differential on Unit basis.
The Western lines have always protest
ed against allowing ihe Canadian Pacific
any differential at all. and have finally
induced the Trunk linos to take the
stand that the differentials must be
allowed on the basis of me regular .
standard rates. The Canadian Pacific
must govern itself accordingly.

Chicago, Oct. 30.— The Atchison mad
today announced that it would, on Nov.
ii and rid and Dec. 4 and 8. run home
seekers' excursions from Chicago to all
points in Texas. The excursions will j
lie at the same rate as from St. Louis.
This action of the Atchison is induced
by the tact that the Central Traffic as
sociation lines have been making rales
by way of Blooliiingtou, end thus giv
ing Chicago holding of the business.
This practically set lies "that all of the
Western roads must join on in the
winter excursion business, and, in fact,
none of them seem to have had any idea
of Keeping out m' it. The Alton,Wa
bash, Illinois Central and the Atchison
have already announced thai tiny will
run the excursion.-, ami the oilier roads
must come in or lose mat business.
Next week the Philips Albert Lea
route excursions will go by the new
route-, namely, Chicago, Rock island &
I'acific to Fort Worth, via Kansas City, j
Texas Pacific lo El Paso; them-.' via
Southern I'acilic and Los Angeles to
San Fraucisco. This is a saving of a
day and a half, in lime over the old
route. The change is made on account
of its taking the tourist through a
warmer section of countiy. Tne tour
ist cars arrf furnished with wholesome
bedding, curtains, etc., provided by the
Pullman P.ilaee Car company, wi.ich
operates the cars. An experienced

Today the advisory board of the West

Yesierday the local passenger asso

leaks out occasionally.

all but one of the men, as well as a full
kit of burglars' tools, masks, etc. It is
