Fire broke out in the cold stor
age warehouse just south of the
Sixty-fourth-street .gate - of the
world s fair. .
The fire started at the top of the
cupola, which rises fully 200 feet
from the ground. Through this
cupola the chimney passed. The
cupola was made of wood, Bur-
mounted witn a starx, ana was
highly ornamented with pillars
and columns.. .Near the top is a
landing. The fire broke out 30
feet above this. As soon as the
firemen arrived, 35 or 40 of them
climbed up the ladders and were
preparing to throw streams of wat
er on the burning portion, when
the lire which had eaten us way
inside to a point below where the
fireman stood, "broke out with vol
canic ferocity on all sides. An ex
clamation of horror broke from
20.000 people gathered about the
building to see the fire. Five men
saved themselves by sliding down
the ropes. Before the others could
follow the fire burned away the
ropes. Those who remained were
huddled toget?eron the north side of
the cupola. It was beyond the reach
of any ladders, and the crowd
stood horror-stricken, helpless to
aid. The flames leaped higher and
higher until the men ! were almost
concealed from view. One fire
man sprang far out and was dash
ed to pieces on the roof 60 feet be
low. .
Another and another, crazed by
the awful heat, followed his ex
ample and met the same fate.
When five had jumped the upper
portion of the cupola gave way, and
the remaining firemen were swal
lowed up in the mass of burning
timbers. Meantime every effort
was being m ade . to extinguish the
fire, most of which was above the
reach of streams. ; The entire
building will be destroyed. It cost
$250,000, and was stored with
wines, meats and fruits.' , The loss
will be $50G,Xfo. It was built by
the Hercules Iron Works, manu
facturers of refrigerating machin
ery. It is reported that three wo
men and several clerks in the of
fice on the third floor were crushed
by the falling cupola.
no one could be found who would
risk ten cents on his whaleship.
When Pulley Point was passed the
boat was ahead fully six lengths,
and five minutes after passing the
Point the greatest race on record
was ended, the man had construc
ted to sail on top of the water
boat that could outrun the swiftest
denizen of the deep. .

boat crossed the Flyer's track re

Binger a Straddler.
We are afraid Binger Hermann,
congressman from Coos county, in
his straddle of the silver question,
will be in the position of the new
circuit judge who tried to please
both parties to the lawsuit by rend
ering his decision so as to compro
mise the matter, with a view of re
taining ; the friendship of both.
But he incurred the lasting entity
of both. - In his next decision he
had learned.a lesson, and he secur
ed the friendship of one side by
rendering a flat-footed decision in
their favor. Binger has been in
his time a most artful and graceful
straddier. But the silver question
is a hard one to successfully strad
dle, it is really a painlul spec
tacle to witness aay one trying ' to
straddle it. He is likely to be
split clear up the back. ,
Attitude of Oregon.
While the citizens of Oregon
mav have doubts as to the wisdom
of California in elongating the
world's fair exhibit by holding a
mid-winter show in San Francisco,
there can be no question as to the
course. Oregonians should pursue
if the exhibition is decided upon,
which it undoubtedly be from pre
sent indications. Oregon should
enter into the exhibit with gener
ous, hearty good will and make as
much of it as possible.

SELF-DUMP RAKES ' ,
OCCETT IB
; ' Racing on Puget Sound.'
What was probably the most
unique race on the record occurred
on the waters of Puget Sound be
tween Tacoma and Seattle oh Fri
day afternoonnamely a race be
tween j a whale and a steamboat.
Shortly , after ; the Flyer passed
Brown's Point on her afternoon
trip, to Seattle, a large shovel-nose
whale was noticed on her port bow,
and as it was in about the same
position when the Flyer came up
on her previous trip it exoited the
curiosity of, the captain, -, who de
cided to stand off his course to get
a near view ot the monster of the
deep. Judge of his astonishment
when, instead, of overhauling the
whale, the whale drew away from
the boat. By this time it had got
noised about among the passengers
that it was the intention of the
officers of the boat to overtake the
whale if possible for wood, steel and
1 steam to do so. r 5 - ,-
Word was sent to the engine
room, and in a few moments it was
plainly noticeable that the crack
boat of the Pacific had ' got an ex
tra move on herself, and in about
five minutes it was clear she was
gaining on the whale. About one
mile south of Robinson's Point the
whale put on an extra spurt speed,
and for a minute or so gained a
little on the boat,;but it evidently
was only aepurt for the boat again
gained.- When Robinson's Point
was leached the whale took the
inside course, and it; was feared it
would run ashore and bo end the
1 a 1 ' . n t
race. ;to prevent inia tne Jiyer
kept on shore as to allow it plenty
of sea room in rounding the point.
Bv reason of taking the outside
course after the point was roun-
del, the whale had gained consid
erable on the boat, but it was evi
dent from the erratic movements of
the leviathan that it was fast be
coming tired out, and that it
would be only a matter of a few
miles more when the monster
would have to'-ckriowledg defeat.
About half a mile from Pulley
roini me wnaie tna boat were
side by side, and the " excitement
among the passengers was intense,
women and children joining in the
wild vigorous yelling. Bets which
at the beginning of the race were
uffored that the whale would do up
the boot were all withdrawn, and
Whether guilty of the awful
crime with which he was charged
or- not, Seay J; MillerT the "negro
arrested at Sykeston, Mo., last
niaht. has paid the penalty for it.
He was dragged irom tne jau ai 6
o'clock this alternoon dv an in:
furiated mob, whose purpose it was
to burn him at the stake. That
he was not burned alive seems to
have been due to the very fury of
the mob that killed him. llxcited
into hysterics, the ringleaders lost
their heads and hanged him with
a chain to a telegraph pole, while
i . l i : . ( . i. .. u i. . v "
iney were tsuounug uum mm,.
John Kay, the lather ot tne mur
dered girls, with singular inconsis
tency, asked that the negro not be
burned, although in the morning
he had set the hour for the torture.
It is doubtful if he knew what he
was doing, he was so excited
After being dragged from the jail,
the negro was hurried away amid
the cries of ''burn him," "burn
him," until a telegraph pole was
reached. ? A chain was drawn
around his neck and two men
climbed the pole with the other
end of it. The negro was drawn up
and strangled. Some one fired a
shot into his body before he was
dead. Everybody was disappoin
ted and angrv at the manner of
his death. The body, was lowered
and horribly mutilated. The ears,
finffers and other pieces were cut

awav. The Douv was men urug
ged by the mob 500 yards,across
the railroad track and burned.
The fire ia to be kent burning all
night. After his arrest at Skyes
ton. the negro was positively men
tified by the fisherman who ferried
him across the river, tie also naa
on his person a ring .belonging to
one of his victims and ins unite
contained hair torn from her head.
These identified bv her father. He
was lodged in tail here .about noon
He called for a Methodist preacher
and one waited on him. He pro
fessed conversion and was baptized,
Immediately after being baptised
he raised his hands and swore he
was innocent. This statement he
repeated to the mob, but it is said
heafterwatd made a partial coh
fession. The door of the jail was
battered in a few minutes before 3
and he was dragged out. Fully
7000 men, women and children
witnessed the execution. Men
who did the hanging are from Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Illinois and Mis
souri, but the work was done In
such a manner and the throng was
so great that no man can name the
individual who participated. .
