GENERAL ALARM TURNED IN, CALLING THE FIRE DEPART MENT PROMPTLY TO THE SCENE. FLAMES THREATEN TO SPREAD, But Are Soon Brought Under Con trol—Salvage Corps Doe* , Good Work. At 2 o'clock this morning fire broke out in the building occupied by Hen ry S. Sternberg as a jobbing, dry goods and clothing house, adjoining the building occupied by Guiterman Bros., formerly occupied by Noyes Bros. & Cutler, at Fifth and Sibley streets, and resulted in considerable damage to the building and greater damage to its contents. An alarm was sent in from Box 34, and the fire department was quick in responding, but not so swift in getting to work. Things seemed to work awkwardly, and it was several minutes after a line of hose was carried to the top story of the Guiterman building before firemen were ready for the water. In the meantime the fire had made rapid progress and had burst out in a bright glare on the roof, spread ing rapidly to the roof of the Guiter man building and that of the one ad joining the burning structure on the other side, which is occupied by Price & Bobbins' wholesale paper house. After water was once turned on, however, the fire department did good work, and the chances seemed to be about even for preventing the fire from spreading much more. The whole upper floor of the building in which the fire originated was seri ously injured, and the fire communi cated to the next floor below, so that the damage from water; in addition to that caused by the fire direct, will be large, anyhow. ITS DISCOVERY. Officer McCormick discovered the reflection of the blaze in the alley on the rear walls of the burning building. He turned in at 1:46 a. m. a still alarm from Engine House No. 12, on Rosabel ' street. Hurrying to Sibley street he met. Officer Perro, who had also caught sight of the de veloping blaze at about the same mo ment. Together the officers rung the regular alarm from Box 34, at Fourth and Sibley street, eight minutes be fore 2 o'clock. Eleven minutes later Chief Jackson, ascertaining the threatening location of the fire, sent in a 4-11 alarm. Each alarm called out four engines and both alarms brought two-thirds of the city's apparatus. Both the Guiterman building and the smaller Sternberg building belong to John Warm. Only the lower story of the latter building was occupied by Mr. Sternberg, the three upper stories be ing devoted to the manufacturing de partment of Guitermann Brothers. The loss by fire will be confined al most entirely to the fourth story, but water has doubtless caused extensive damage to Guiterman's stock in the same building. Sternberg's stock was promptly protected by the salvage corps and will suffer little harm. By 2:30 the blaze was under good con trol. Chief Jackson, however, dis played excellent judgment in using as little water as possible, and all need less loss was thus avoided. —^s ' BANKERS BANQUET ECKELS.

AT HER LAST GASP. N Surviving; Armenians Call on 111** World for Aid. " "" . LONDON, Dec. 12— dispatch ad dressed to the Associated Press and signed by a number of Armenians of Constantinople has been received here.- It says: ." . : "Armenia is at her last gasp. The work of extermination continues. The number of people massacred reaches 100,000, and half a million of survivors have taken refuge in the forests and mountains, where they are feeding on herbs and roots. Hunger and cold have begun to make great ravages among them. In the name of humanity and Christianity save us." .'■■-• : -.V'\'.; - BOSTON, Dec. 12.— The news that Armenia had cabled an appeal for help to the Associated Press at London was taken in ' missionary circles here as undeniable evidence of the despe rate need of those who have suffered from Turkish depredations and have been deprived of everything they pos sessed by murderous infidels. Rev. Judson Smith, D. D., secretary of the American board of foreign mission commissioners, said to a reporter of the Associated Press: "The statements are entirely cred ible. Although information received by us shows the number killed to reach only 50.0C0, since our latest advices were sent there have been a number of additional massacres which may bring the total up to 100,000, as stated in the appeal." ■ -'::- LADEN WITH PLUNDER. 'v Red-Handed Turks and Kurds Pouring' Into Constantinople. LONDON, Dec. 12.— The Daily News will tomorrow publish a dispatch from Constantinople which says: p» "For days, past Turks and Kurds have been pouring into the city from the devastated portions of Asia Minor. Their primary object' is • the disposal of the loot which they have : obtained during the massacres. They are also hopeful of a richer harvest in the event of the sultan permitting a rising at Stamboul. Their stories, coupled with the display of plunder, have inflamed the lowest class of- Moslems with an aching desire to attack the - bazaars. They are ready to seize upon the slight est provocation for an attack. It .is unwholesomely significant of the con junction of this state of affairs that the government is seizing and deport ing daily numbers of Armenians of the : poorest but most robust class. The news from the interior increases in horror with every mail. In places within a short distance massacre and • pilllage are still of daily occurrence, and everywhere destitute Armenians are flocking - into the large . towns, where there is no means of feeding them. ■ No news has been received yet ■ from Zeitoun, and none is exepected until all the Zeitounites have been killed.

Thurman came to a close this after noon at 1:15 o'clock at his residence, corner of Rich street and Washing ton avenue. The end was peaceful in the - extreme, and the soul of the great man left its earthly habitation without a rign of physical distress. ALLEN G. THURMAN. y : } ;!. T : ' * *'.'..^' ' *\'v ': . At the- instant of dissolution^. and for some hours before, JudgeJTh fir man had been lying in am uncon scious condition. He passed merely from sleep temporal to sleep -eternal, and the change was hardly ,noticea ble even to the loved ones who sur rounded his bedside. 'In the midst of the volumes of knowledge Ihe prized"' so dearly, and amiclst the scenes where he has. spent so many pleasant hours of his happy old age, the vital spark took wings from the image of clay. Judge Thurman died ■ in his beloved library, which -looks toward the setting sun. Shortly aft er his fall several weeks ago Judge Thurman's bed was removed from the adjoining bed room to his library, and he remained there. ..-L.- t Judge Thurman has lived with his son, Allen W. Thurman, -since the j death of his wife several years ago, i and, being unable to leave the house, j he occupied apartments in the sec ond story of the residence, where: he spent the last • days of his life in a : remarkably pleas- j ant and agreeable manner. The j beginning of Judge Thurman's fatal j illness dates from Nov. 7 last, when J he fell heavily while walking across i the library floor. A few days after i ' the fall Judge Thurman's life was j despaired of, but he rallied from the , shock, . and at times apparently seemed to have regained his old time vigor. On Nov. 13 Judge. Thrur man was eighty-two years of age, and on that date several of his old friends called on him and had a pleasant chat. On that occasion] he seemer. unusually cheerful and bright. , ; lU: l>'?- A TEDIOUS ILLNESS. . Since the accident, he has had his good days and his bad " ones, He i had' been confined to his bed nearly i all the time, and his physician, _ Dr. W. H. Whitaker, called on him daily, J That he was steadily growing weak er was apparent to all, and It had j been known for some time that his j lease of life could not be protracted | much longer. On account of his con- ! finement to bed Judge Thurman j began to tie afflicted with bed-sores, i and in order to relieve this un- ;' pleasantness he at times sat vup and i stood up, but he had not attempted [ to walk since his fall. Last Tuesday j when Dr. Whitaker called he found j his patient sitting up in a chair, smoking a cigar, and apparently en- j joying it. He shook hands with the . doctor, and said, ■ I "My dear doctor, sit down and |, talk to me." ' _ _. . - . I He seemed very ; buoyant, and cracked a joke, and, as was his habit, , talked to the doctor in French. It should be remarked that" recently it seemed to be one of Judge Th.ur^ man's delights to talk in French, ' showing the remarkable vigor of his mental powers. Last Tuesday Dr. Whitaker noticed that he did j not continue his French conversation as long as usual,' and soon > tired- of his cigar, and when he got ba~kJpto bed his pulse was rather 'feeble.! When Whitaker saw Judge Thurman j Wednesday about 4 p. m., he seemed j listless, and rather heavy about his eyes and in his mental operations? I i However, he recognized theyphysi- j, cian and members of the family. The change for the worst became \. ..> ; " i quite marked shortly after midnight Wednesday, and at 2 a, m. the fam lly became alarmed and sent for Dr.- Whitaker. ,v - THE END. At that time Dr. Whitaker found fife venerable patient almost unconscious;- Mucus . had filled the . bronchial tubes ' and ' his breathing was labored. Dr.- Whitaker roused him. sufficiently to 1 ask him if he was thirsty, and Judge' Thurman nodded his head in assent.- Dr. Whitaker gave a little stimulant in 1 water, which he swallowed with dif ficulty. He seemed, however, to be 1 partially conscious of what he was l doing. He then sank into a heavy stupor, from which he was . never aroused. It was known at 2 a. m. to day that the beginning of the end had set in and the family was notified. . At 10 o'clock this morning Dr. Whitaker found the patient . gradually sinking.- He gave him a stimulant, which was' swallowed mechanically. Judge Thur man was perfectly unconscious and re mained until he passed away at 1:15 p. m. At the final scene all of the family was at his bedside. He seemed to be free from all distress, and during the morning hours all that the sorrow ing family could do was to moisten his parched lips at intervals. Those pres ent at the death scene were Mr. and Mrs., Allen W. Thurman and the fol lowing grand children: Lee, Miss Cath erine,'" Allen G., Jr., Daniel C, and Starling Thurman, all children of Allen W. Thurman. ■'.','. It; was decided tonight to have the funeral at the residence at 10 a, m. Saturday. : While efforts will be made fc> have the services; as private as pos sible,' in deference to public sentiment all who desire will be given an op portunity to view the remains at the residence. Rev. J. L. Grover, who to day celebrated his eighty-ninth birth day, will preach the sermon. It was Judge Thurman's request that if Rev. Mr. Grover was living and in good health, the latter should preach the sermon at his funeral. Mr. Grover is at present city librarian, a position he has held for twenty-two years, and is still a very active man. I , OHIO IN MOURNING. Gov. McKinley today issued the fol lowing: •' '""" '"' "Ohio has lost one of of its noblest citizens. Allen G. Thurman died at 1 o'clock today, at his home in the city of Columbus at the ripe age of eighty-two. He was a statesman, whose sturdy in tegrity and exalted abilities were rec ognized not- only In his own state, but in 'every part of the United States. As a judge of the supreme court of the state he was a learned and incorrupt ible interpreter of the law." As United States senator he faithfully and with exceptional honor represented this state in the United States senate. He was a distinguished party leader, and stood in the front rank with the great men who were his .contemporaries. After being the recipient of many hon ors at the hands of his party and coun trymen, he retired to private life with the universal respect and esteem of the citizens of the republic and the love of all who had the honor of knowing him.. His illustrious career is a conspicuous example of the possibilities! of Amer ican citizenship, and - is worthy the study of the youth of our state. The people of : Ohio, regardless of party, will be mourners at his bier. Out of respect to his memory, it is hereby or dered! that the flag be displayed at half mast over the state capitol until after his obsequies." ';^^U.'i - • LIFE OF THURMAN. Allen Granbery Thurman was born at Lynchburg, Va,, Nov. 13, 1813. His father was Rev. Pleasant Thurman, a minister of the Methodist church, and his mother the only daughter of Col. Nathaniel Allen, nephew and adopted son of Joseph Hewes, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. His parents removed to Chillicothe, 0., in 1819, and he made that place his home until he settled in Columbus. in 1853, where he has since resided. His education was in the Chillicothe acad emy and at the hands of his mother.' At the age of eighteen he assisted in land surveying, and at twenty-one he was private secretary to Gov. Lucas. He studied law with his uncle, Gov. William Allen, was admitted to the bar In 1835, and In a few years was em ployed in almost every litigated case in Ross county, Ohio. In 1844 he was elected by the Democrats to congress, and he entered that body Dec. 1, 1845, as Its youngest member. Preferring the practice of law, he dcelined a re nomination to congress, and remained at the bar until 1851, when he was elected to the supreme bench of Ohio. From December, 1854, till February, 1856, he served as chief justice, and on the expiration of his term he refused a renomination. His opinions contained In the first five volumes of the state re ports are remarkable for the clear and forcible expressions of his views and the accuracy of his statements of the law.

Hayes, his opponent, was elected by a majority of fewer than 3,000 votes, though the Republicans had a majority In 1866 of more than 43,000. Mr. Thurman was then elect ed to the senate to succeed Benjamin F. Wade. He took his seat March; 4, 1869, and from the first was recognized as the leader of the Democratic mi nority. He was a member of the ju diciary committee, and on the acces sion of his party to power in the For ty-sixth 'congress he ..was made Its chairman, and " also chosen president pro tempore of the senate, owing to the illness off' Vice President Wheeler.

O. T. U. AT THE A. F. L. ,' CONVENTION. THE LADIES MAKE SPEECHES. Resolution Against Constitutions That Restrict the Liberty of 1}:; the People. . | NEW YORK, Dec. 12.— Among the miscellaneous business introduced today at the Federation of Labor convention was the approval of a proposition to appoint a conciliation or arbitration committee for the pur pose of bringing about a settlement •of the labor union differences in Chicago. It was announced that an agreement had been effected between the Boot and Shoe Workers' Na tional union and the American Boot and Shoe Workers' union, of Chica go, whereby the latter will use the label. This means in all probability that the two will be combined as one. President Mcßride stated that four ladies, representing the National , Woman's Christian Temperance union, were present and would ad dress the convention. He then in- j troduced Mrs. Mary Burt, president of the W. C. T. U. She said she came to bring the greeting of Miss Prances E. Willard, president of the I National Christian Temperance union, who, through the delegation, took the members of the convention by the hand in kindly sympathy. This greeting came from the world, inasmuch as. Miss Willard is presi dent of the national union. The Federation of Labor and the W. C. T. U. had many purposes in com mon, and through the well directed efforts of the federation this coun try would take first rank in the in dustrial world. Mrs. Burt spoke of the serious results of liquor among the working classes, and the federa tion should seriously consider it. Mrs. J. H. W. Stuckenberg, nation al superintendent of the department of temperance and labor of the W. C. T. U., of Cambride, Mass., spoke at some . length of the questions, of her, society. She said the laboring peo ple had much to do to look after ..the ' liquor question. Mrs/ Emilie D. Mar tin, national superintendent of the department of ; purity in literature and art, and - Mrs.; Frances K. Barnes, national superintendent of young women's work of the W. C. T. 17., spoke on similar subjects. It was voted to have the speeches of the first two representatives printed in the official organ of the federa tion. ",.-.•■ :vV' :: S^':- v: f : — ; UNITED AGAINST CAPITAL. E. J. Cowey, the English repre sentative of the miners' union, was then called to the platform. He said he had good news for the peo ple, and that was that a big strike of shipbuilders in Scotland had at last been settled, and the capitalists had failed. The terms are an in crease of wages now and again in February. Mr. Cowey said he be lieved in unions, and because of it he was here. He had fought in his country for years, and: as a result he is satisfied that unionism is the only logical conclusion a man can come to after conversation. " In clos ing, he said: :";" --"I hop© the time will come when the English-speaking people shall become united -on the one common ground against our capital." J. Mawdsley.the other representative, and who comes from the mule spin ners' union of Manchester, Eng., was introduced. He said he would not talk on- sentimentals, as there" had been - enough of that so far this week. He i felt pretty sure that if he were a ! capitalist he would be as wicked as J the other capitalists; and every other man in the hall, he thought, would be the same.

They should talk more • about pounds, shillings and peace than about sentiment. If the workingmen wanted to bet on an equal footing with capital they must get -down to practi cal business methods. In his trade the workers made a liberal subscription weekly, and whenever the employers were ready to strike the workers were ready for them. Political freedom means nothing for the worklngmen without business organization. - SOCIALISTS CAN HELP. The speaker deprecated the quarrels between the socialists and other or ganizations of workmen. Though the ! two organizations might differ as to methods of accomplishment, their ob jects were practically the same. To work together . and adopt the best means, no matter by whom suggested, as fast as they present themselves, should be the main object, and if the workers of the world were the men they ought to be, they would get them. The special committee appointed to bring about a settlement of. the Chi cago difficulties made a report that a committee of two of the executive council go to Chicago and settle the matter. The labor bodies of that city are at odds and an effort was made to have the matter aired before the con- [ vention. One faction, headed by Dele- j gate Pomeroy, objected, while others , were of the opinion that Delegate j Dould should be granted an opportuni- 1 ty to state the situation of affairs. Three motions were made on the sub- j ject. One was to refer back to the ! committee; another to consider the I question in executive session, and an- J other to give Dould the floor. After ! much argument on both sides, the re port of the committee was adopted and [ the committee of two appointed. A great batch of resolutions was re- 1 erred to appropriate committees.among ■ others being one providing for a peti- j tion to congress in favor of the recog- j nition of the belligerent rights of Cuba, I and another protesting against any leg islation that will open the way to Sun day labor. ON LIBERTY. Delegate Ashe offered a resolution re- j citing that a written constitution was | not essential to the liberty and happi ! ness of a people, and that under such j I constitutions enacted by the people have been abrogated by the courts, and stating It is- the sentiment of the fed- i eration of labor that such written cooT- I stitutions be abolished. After some dis cussion the resolution was laid on the j table by a vote of 37 to 19. The con- ! vention then adjourned until tomorrow. j MASSACRE IN MANILLA.

An admis ■ sion fee of 50 cents was charged and j this served to turn many people away J who went to the hall out of curiosity. , j Less than 200 people heard the lect- , I ure. Many of those present were not . in sympathy with the speaker and I frequently interrupted him with j hisses and groans. Ahlwardt argued that, while the Jews produced j ! nothing, they managed to live well i I upon the labors of others and were ■ , in consequence a burden to the rest lof the world. The lecture teemed ! with denunciations of the Jews. j s— I Good Sport for the President. ' NORFALK, Va., Dec. 12.— President Cleveland and party had a good day's sport yesterday.

PICKED TO LEAD, REPUBLICAN CAUCUS COMMIT.- TEE OP THE SENATE SE LECTS CHAIR.MEX. DAVIS ON THE JUDICIARY,, COMPLETION OP THE ASSIGXn MEXTS TO BE AXXOLXCED 1 MONDAY. YOI'XG REPUBLICANS ACTIVE. Urftin— Immediate Heor—nnizno tion of the Senate, hut the I Older Men Object. WASHINGTON, Dec. 10. — The members of the Republican caucus committee of the senate have been engaged in conferences with other members of the senate today in an effort to assure themselves that the assignments of committee chairman ships which they have made will prove satisfactory when the list shall be presented to the caucus. The committee has practically com pleted this branch of its work and the members feel, after conferring with their colleagues, that the allot ments they have made will be ac ceptable to the Republican senators. They have had considerable difficulty in finding a suitable and acceptable chairmanship for Senator Shoup, but have now solved the problem by as signing him to the committee on ed ucation and labor, of which Sena tor Kyle, a Populist, is chairman. This will permit the arrangement heretofore made placing Senator Gal linger at the head of. the pensions committee. It is quite definitely Bet tled that Senator Piatt shall head the committee on patents and Sena tor Burrows on revision of the laws. The committee will devote the rest of the- week to the consideration of the make-up of the bodies of the committees, and hope now to be able to report to the full caucus by Monday. Considerable work in this line has already been accomplished, and it may be stated that the full majority representation on three of the four principal committees shall be decided upon. This places Sen ators Davis and Thurston on judi ciary; Cameron and Lodge on for eign relations; Piatt and Wolcott on finance. The younger element of the Repub lican senators are now pressing upon their colleagues the importance of organization of the senate before the Christmas holidays, for- the ef fect which they argue the prompt action will have on the country. They began their crusade today, and are of the opinion that the- caucus committee is sufficiently convinced of the soundness of the argument to hasten matters as much as possible. Some of the older senators are in clined to think that this plan would involve unseemly haste and may an tagonize the movement. , LOST TWO GOOD POSITIONS. " Attorney General Removes Claim. Investigator Hill. WASHINGTON, Dec., 12.— W. W. Hill, of Mississippi, was removed to day by Attorney General Harmon as the commissioner appointed by the United Stats court of claims to inves tigate the overtime claims of letter car riers throughout the country. Hill is the ex-assistant superintendent of tha free delivery system, postoffice depart ment, whose peremptory dismissal for "conspiracy" by Postmaster. General Wilson created a sensation last week. The action • today is the result of the postmaster general's letter calling at tention to the alleged scheme of Hill and two other clerks to bring the de partments into disrepute and probably force a ■ congressional Investigation, and suggesting that his connection with the department of justice cease. Hill held both offices, drawing a $2,OCC salary as assistant superintendent and a per diem salary and expenses as com missioner. No offical changes growing out of the affair are contemplated. Sentenced to Death. HAVANA, Dec. 12.— Acebo, the insur gent leader who was recently captured, has been sentenced to death. Still another is to build right through from Pierre to Watertown and join the Minneapolis & St. Louis there. The cattle and mining industries of the Hills country have grown so the past few years that there is no doubt a rail way into that region would pay right from the start.
