Three-quarters of a kiillion dollars has been stolen from tho campaign fund of the Democratic party raised for tho years 1S93, 1S91, and spring Of This charge is m:nk lv M. C. Mc- ! donnld nnd Alderman John Powers. It is sustained by tho newly elected chairman of the county central committee, Thomas Gah. - fn, who says that the funds for tho past two years have not been accounted for.

HALF A MILLION IN ASHES. Fire at Indianapolis Wipes Out the Stocks of Seven Finns. Inpiasapolisj Dei. 4. Seven firms whose property was valued at t "O.0J0 at breakfast time yesterday morning aronow getting ready to obtain what they can of the said value from the insurance com pinies'; fjr the property, consisting of stiK-ks of goods of various kinds, and the bnildings in which they were contained, are now dissipated among the elements, the only visible portions being ashes, cm- bjrs and debris. About 7:3 a. tn. fire was discovered in 58 to OS South Meridian street, tho building occupied by fc'chnull &. Co.. wholesale grocers, nnd beforo it stopped Its ravnjres the following firms had been burned out: Schnull & Co., wholcsal ' grocers; Ward Bros., druggists; Fairbanks Morse & Co., sci.les; Eekhousa Bros., liquors; Woodford & Pohlman, linnor.v. InlLina Coffee company nnd 11 ildi brand Hardware company. Whilo tho fire was in progress walls were falling nt close intervals nnd during this destruction several firemen were caught iu tho crash, two of whom wero rescued ia such a condition that they will lie laid up. The fire was in the heart of the wholesale district of the city and completely destroyed the northeast quar ter of tho block bounded by Meridian, Maryland, Georgia und Illinois streets. Soon after tho fire broke out tho thir.l floor of the schnull building fell, carrying with it tho second nji.l piling tho whole business up aheap of blazing ruins on tho hrst lloor. bo rapid W;s the spread of the ilames that the employes of this firm saved themselves only by "the skin of their teeth." llio quarter-block destroyed was com posed ofjbuildiugs of brick three and four stories in heigat. Beforo the fire depart ment could get to work it was evident that the entire quarter-block was doomed nnd that the only tiling to be done was to save the aiijoming buildings. The stocks in the buildings contained much that was hiirlily inflammable, especially in th case of Eckhouse Bros, and Woodford & Pohl man, and to this dillieulty was add"d high north wind anil bitter cold weather. The supply of water was imullieient, and the ten streams that wen? poured en tho blaze had very little effect, if any. Every available engine und man in the do; rt- lnent was engaged m tho lijfbt ugaiust the Ilames. In this condition of nfTairs the flro made terribly rapid progress. So qtueklv did the flames spread through the block thai those ownincr g xxls in the buildimrs south I of the one where tho fire started did not ! have time to save even their baoks and papers, let alone their goods. In a very hurt time the last building to the south the ono on the alley was in Uuuies, and it was noon before control over tho blnzn was obtained, and even then it was burning fiercely, with no chance, however, t spread farther. The loss is put at fym, UiO in all. Here S-.aio More VrU for Us. HfENds AvitEs. IKs;. 4.
