M!!P^^ WILL MAKE TROUBLE ■. JpJtOPOSITION TO REORGANIZE: CLEARING HOUSE HAS OPPOSITION WOULD ADVANCE MEMBERSHIP Smaller Member* Claim They Would Be Frozen. O-at—Scheme, if Successful, May Cause Split. A number of members of the Chamber Of Commerce are Up in arms over the Attempt to reorganize the clearing house. A petition was clrcu.lft.ted Saturday seek ing signatures en th© new pr6]Sostlipn, flj&d it was not, until yesterday morning .th£kt the opposing- sentiment was shown. 'fjiQ plan is to limit th a number of mom. pefs In th^ clearing bouse to 100, and If «iij§ action fe taken it will be Impossible ■®r"the smaller members to get into the clearing smaller members to get Into the irlng house at all, and they will have xp do all their . clearing's through other fens as some of the smaller ones are doing at the present, tim.?. <lt "will also make It impossible for any rfievr members to get in except by buying dut at a premium some of the older ones, and under this plan it would not be long before a clearing house membership would be as valuable as ai membership it, the Chamber itself. ■There promises to be a warm fight over the proposition, and those who have 'the lisw plan in hand claim that they will carry it through, but the opposition are lust as positive that they will win out. i ,Th.o opposition claims it is a/ scheme on the part of the larger firms to get con trol . of the clearing 'house, and If they Should" be successful, it would militate against the growth of the chamber. •■The present membership of the clearing iio\ise, which is a separate and distinct organization from the chamber, is 93, and the fight of reorganization is of course qnjy among these members. There Is considerable talk that if the reorganiza tion scheme goes through, as opposition, comprising the smaller members, will form a clearing hcuse"Wmong themselves. AIR THEIR TROUBLES. The Two Dally Papers at the "C» ?»la>- Consolidate. The university general faculty conven gfl yesterday morning In the president's ef n6d and cleared up a mass of student pe titions incident upon the beginning of the llt^w semester. The question of greatest prominence before the meeting was the ttnlatter of the two dally newspapers now in existence at the university. -A y petition from tho Minnesota Daily Jfews, the newly organized paper, re questing the tise of an office room in one pfcthe college buildings, was read and dis- Ctlssed at length. . ;Mr. J. I. Duo-and, editor of the Daily $v§ws, appeared before the meeting in fittpport of the petition, lie briefly out , lined the policy and organization of his p&per and insisted upon its superiority to the old daily in the matter of cororate Organism and the power of the directors to dismiss incapable editors. Ho stated that the constitution of the old daily left tae entire control in the hands of the Chosen editors. Prof. Anderson contradicted this la-ttir Statement. He SRld that the old paper V*3 provided with a board of directors 1(1 whose power It lay to dismiss incom petent members of tho staff. .-The faculty was about evenly divided la the matter. Certain professors feel ,ycsry strongly about it. while others are riggjffere-nt. The opinion of the majority to.ppea.rs to be that, whllj the appearance of the new venture has proved a benefi cial epur to the old pap.^r, the existence Of the two papers in t/e same filed is pot desiracle. Final action in the case was postponed at the wish of President Northrop, who £ipressed the desire to confer with the representatives of the two papers mr the rie&r future to discuss the possibility of immediate consolidation. It is the presi dent's opinion that the fina-1 merging of the rival interests is inevitable in the tnd.an<l that the sooner it can take place micably, the better. II I". AH IX« IS COXTIMED.

HOUSE- AT WATERBURY WAS SET ON FIRE THIS BLAZE STARTED A PANIC Loss Given in Earlier Reports Is Not Reduced, hut Rather Increased, by the Latest Estimates of Experts. NO LIVES' LOST. FEW INJURED WATERBURY, Conn., Feb. 3.—The sun rose today on a blackened and smolder ing mas 3of ruins that marked the main business section of the city. There Is a very strong suspicion that the fire, which completely destroyed 'the Scovill house, burning thousands of aol lars worth of furniture, appointments anl personal effects, and imperiling many lives, was the work of an incendiary. The fire originated in the pool and bil liard room in the basement of the house on the further sida from the burned dis trict. The room was locked und no cm was supposed to be there. No fire was kept in the room, all heat being supplied from a boiler in another part of the build ing. Manager Truman said &t the police sta tion, while the fire was still raging, that he had not the slightest doubt it was of incendiary origin. No one could be found to explain th e cause, and the authorities have been quietly investigating. Panic Threw Off Suspicion. Tlie fire came so close on th« heels of the big conllagration that the thousands of spectators who witnessed it were thrown into a more complete panic thaa the original (ire caused. The flames had' only begun to die out along Bank, Grand and South Main streets at 4 o'clock when rlame<s leaped upward, as by magic, and people feared the city was doomed after all. The call was runs In promptly and the engines that hurried to the scene turned their attention mainly to prevent ing the spread of the flames. It was evi dent that the hotel was doomed, and if the fire had reached the adjacent build ings thei> __would have been very little hope of saving the center of the city. The fire burned far into the day, and. was not extinguished entirely until even ing. The scene about the city was only little less remarkable than that of the previ ous evening. Thousands of people stum bled around the icy streets, and with the greatest difficulty were restrained by the militia and police from venturing within the danger lines. A tangled network of wires on Bank and South Main streets greatly hindered the work of extinguish ing the last flames and clearing away the wreckage. The Connecticut Railway and Lighting company has men on the streets all day removing, repairing and replacing- the wires. The city's telephonic communica tion, lighting facilities and electric power were restored before nightfall. Los* Not Overeatlmated. A revised list of losses and insurance is very difficult to obtain at this time. Few know just what the loss was on their buildings and stock. It Is believed that when the truth is known the figures telegraphed this morning will not be tar from the correct estimate. The remarkable feature of the fire was undoubtedly the absence, so far as known, of loss of life. Two men who were asleep in theScoville house, Charles Y. Kent, of the Holmes, Booth & Hay dens company, and members of the board of education, and the second cook, a Ger man, were reported missing, but bom have been located. Ine rebuilding of ruined structures is only a question of time. Temporary quarters have been secured by all the firms. Many have already telegraphed for new stock, and will resume business immediately. American Still T«sne.i. The American Publishing company is among the heaviest losers, the building being entirely ruined, but the paper was Issued fn an abbreviated form tonight. The walls of the mechanical department are still standing and It Is said that it will be roofed In immediately. The press and machines are believed to be not seriously damaged, though buried under water and debris. The plans of the com pany have not been formulated. There has been more or less disorder about the streets today, but the police have been very active and the militia lias been of great service in handling the crowds. The streets were piled with household goods and strewn with small articles thrown from the windows. Some of this porperty was confiscated by passers-by, but the amount of thieving was small compared with the opportuni ties offered by the confusion. The number of injured was very small, and in all but one or two cases the in juries were slight. The streets are rapid ly being cleared. Estimates by experts tonight places the total loss at close to $2,500,000. In Labor's Field, President Munzer presided at a meeting of the Building Trades council last night, when credentials were received from delegates representing 1 the carpenters and structural iron workers. The scale of wages proposed by the hoisting engineers was considered and approved. It called for a nine-hour day, at 40 cents per hour, time and a half for overtime and double time for holidays. The bricklayers' scale, with no change from last year, was approved. Electrical "Workers. The Electrical Workers' union held a rousing meeting last night, presided over by President Tubbesing, when J. Graves and P. H. Koch were initiated, and two applications for membership were re ceived. The meeting was of a routine character, which will be thoroughly threshed out at next meeting. Receipts, $43.60; disbursements, $30.60. Shoe Cotters' Union. The Shoe Cutters' union held an over flow meeting last night, when on open meeting was called to meet H. M. Eaton representing the Boot and Shoeworkers' union. In an address to the union, Mr. Eaton said that there were good gains in the sentiment in the East in favor of union goods, both by the manufacturers and the working people. A demand for goods with the staimp In the West, he found, was growing, as well, through the members of the different unions, and as a result he found that goods from tha East bearing the stamp was taking the place of even localjpoods which does not bear the stamp. S|r. Eaton left for St. Louis, whsre he is Interested in the same work, L,ABOI£ KfiTES. The following unloris^neet tonight: Car penters, sheet metal workers, outchers, grocery clerks, stationary nernien, struc tural iron workers and shoe cutters. At a meeting of the Waitress' union last night the officers were obligated and two new memera initiated. A committee of five was appointed to make arrange ments for an open meeting, to be held in the near future. The expressmen held a very enthusi astic meeting last night, when great progress was made In placing the union on a sound business basis.

SOFFEL'S THRILLING TALE RECITES INCIDENTS O!F THE GET AWAY FROM THE JAIIi And Tells of the Meeting With th/» Detectives and the Shooting: Match That Ended in Death of Riddle*. PITTSBURG, Feb. 3.—The only matter now of anything like absorbing Interest in connection with the Biddies is the fate of Mrs. Soffel and anything she may say concerning the escape and subsequent capture of the trio. She is lying in the Butler hospital, and though still a sick woman, her case is not considered really serious. She made a statement tonight to some newspaper men in the presence of Dr. Bricker, in which she said: "I had not intended going with the Biddle boys on the night of their escape, but Ed's entreaties won me over. She told of how she remained in tho library on Thursday morning awaiting the signal for the outbreak. It waa her intension to let the boys go and she would meet them later. While sitting Jn the library she was almost paralyzed when the two brothers came crashing through the door. In their excitement they had lost tho key to this door and had to break It down. Ed Made Her Go. "Ed asked' me to come with them. 'Come with us,' he said to me. I resisted and told them to go. They told me they had not an instant to lose, and if the of ficers were to get away I would be dis covered, they insisted. Ed and Jack went to Allegheny, where we met at their friend's house. Well, we could not remain there, and we were soon out on the road again. "The night in the schoolhouse was per ishing cold. The exposure affected ma greatly. Now, I want to say the state ments that I was intoxicated are untrue. Ed and Jack bought a half pint cf whisky, and I drank some of it. It seem ed to stimulate me. Now, that was the only time I drank on the trip. "Ed and Jack took several drinks and I told them to go sparingly on it as they wctld not be abie to get any more with out detection. We secured a Bleigh and drove through the country. Tae night was bitter cold. There was no robe in the sleigh and I suffered terribly. When daylight came I had nearly perTahed from the cold. "Well, the next day brought us to the terrible t\ ne- We drove through Butler and knew that we had been suspected. Story of the Battle. ■ Then we soon reached Mount Chest nut and getting something to eat started again. I was feeling 111 and frightened. The beys learned that the detectives were after us and they consulted aobut defending themselves. Ed said to Jack: 'It's a life for a life; let's shoot them down.' When they saw the detectives Ed told Jack to get xeady. He recognized Detective Roach. "Detective McGovern got out of the sleigh and was followed by the other two. I saw Detective McGovern fire. The shots were returned by Ed and Jack. Then there was a fusillade of bullets. I saw Ed and Jack fall out of the sleigh. I was shot. The horse took fright and ran away.
