The remains are so badly charred that Identification Is im possible. They are evidently not tbe bodies of firemen, owing to tho. locality In which they were found. The total number of dead bodies so far recovered Is 15, but the search in tho ruins thus far has been very slight There Is great beat and confusion, and there is no doubt the list la still incomplete.

GOLD STORAGE WAREHOUSE HELL Chicago' Mayor Says tho City WillTflko OhargoofSuch Places. Chicago, July 11. Asa fire trap tho cold ntorago warobouso could not have been mora perfectly constructed. ItvasJJ50 feet long and 150 feet srldo, made of wood and covered with staff. Tbe main body of tbe building was flvo stories high. In tho center rose tho smokestack in the shapo of n cupola 200 feet high. Its base was about thirty feet square, and ninety feet up there was a balcony from which rose a tower culminating in (ho mouth of tho smoko stack, where the firo was lafd. It la Supposed that tho framework around tho mouth of the chimney caught Ore from a defect in the iluo. At fJiBt It appeared to be an Insignifi cant affair, but, knowing the inflam mable nature of tbe structure, Fire Marshal Murphy called oil the compan ies nut. With about forty of bis men Captain Jfttzpatrlok climbed the ladder Inside the tower to the balcony and from there ropes wore lowered to haul up the hose. Ono line of hose bad beeq gotten up when tho wind caused tbe flames to break out in an alarming manner about ten foot from the top of the cupola. In tho meantime tho Are had eaten its way down the inside of the structure and all unconscious of the fact the firemen were standing on the shell of a burning volcano. Tho fire bad been burning scarcely twenty minutes whon suddenly flames burst out around tho baso of the balcony In perfect fury. All tho roperv hanging from tbe tower were burned away. One hose withstood tbe heat, however, and John Davis caught hold of it and slid down to the main roof where he fainted. His face and bands were terribly burned but physicians say he will recover. Two of his fellow firemen attempted to follow blm but be fore they were half way dowu tho hose gavo way and they dropped Into tbe seething mass of Are and were lost. Another man started down a portion of rope hanging from tho tower but it gave way and he full, striking on bis head and being Instantly killed. There now remained, according to tho count of various spectators, twenty five to thirty men on tbo tower. Thoy wero hopelessly beyond human help, tho longest ladder falling short by fully thirty feet. At this terrlblo moment Captain Fitzpatrlok's tall ferm appeared before tho mon who wero huddled to gether on tbo narrow balcony. He seemed to bo addressing bis bravo fol lowers. As he ceased speaking one of the men crept around the burning bal cony and returned a moment later with a rope. It was hastily fastened to the rrulllng around the balcony aud thrown to tbo roof. Fitzpatrick was seen to point to It aud ono of tho men started to slide down but before he was half down the cruel flumes rolled up and he was swallowed iu tho awful volcano. Another tried it aud met the same fate. One after another ilvo of tho men at this point sprang from tbo balcony to tbo roof. If any survived tho awful leap they were burned to death after wards. The rope burned off about half way down but Fltzpatrlok, seeing the men jumping to doom, seized tho strand and started down. Ho dropped from the end of tho rope and caught on tbo lad. der which was raised to within twenty feet of It. Fire Marshal Murphy, who was on the roof, sprang forward and soon reached Fitzpatrick. A shout of admiration and encouragement went up. Tho heroio marshal started back with bis friend, enveloped In flames. With tbe energy of despair heolutcbed bis comrade and slid down tbe ladder. Both Murphy and Fltzpatrlok were un conscious when picked up. The Form er, however, was not seriously hurt, but Fitzpatrick was not expected to survive tbe night. Scarcely twenty-five minutes htd elapsed since tbe fire was discovered but so rapid bad been Its progress that the entire tower burned away aud fell with an awful crash carrying with It tbe unfortunates who were left on the balcony and several firemen who wero playlugon the flames with (he hose from the roof. Seeing It was a hopeless task to at tempt to save'tbo building tbe remain ing firemen directed their efforts to keeping tbe flame from spreading fur- DAILY IfiJOlTIOtf.

Thoy wero already within reach of tho world's fulr stables and tho roofs of several hotels across Stony Island avenue, just outside tho grounds, were on nre. Tho hotels wero saved with difficulty but tho stables wore des troyed. Less than two hours after tbo fire started tho cold storasco warehouse was u smoking ruin. It Is doubtful if any of tho bodies will over bo tecovured, so furious and terrlflo was tho beut. A fow weeks ago Marshal Murphy inspected tho burned building and re ported it extremely unsafe. On no count of his report tbe Insurauco com panics cancelled all risks on It, so the loss Ib complete. It Is reported by some of tho Columbian guards that n nam ber of women lost tholr Ilve In the building. Firemen discredit the story but tonight a lady'a watch was found ou a body so badly burned that It Is im possible to toll whether It Is that of a man or woman.

There seems to bo a rcrlous hitch la tho progress of building the jute mill at Salem. A largo appropriation was made by tbo last legislature and soon1 after It adjourned stops were taken to got tho plant In working order to turn out bags for tho grain crop ofl893 The officials In chargo bustled about considerably. Exports wore consulted In several branches of tho subject. The superintendent of tbo prison, anxious to have his convicts employed, made several trlp9 of Inquiry, and since then we have beard nothing but.a dull lull n tbo prpceedlugs. Tho way tho ora tors spouted In the legislature one would bavo thought tho people were suffering for tho institution more than for re ligion. Speaker Keady and others told bow muoh would bo saved annually to tho farmers of Oregon. It was stated at sevoral hundred thousand. Well, tho farmers aro ready to be saved. The intere t on tho money could be saved too, for that Is u very neat sum to Ho Idle a year. And If'tho Jute mill Is not built this year in tlmo for tho crop to got tho benefit of cheaper bags, they may as well wait u year. The farmers will lose tbo use of cheap grain bags when they need them as never before to mako a living out of cheap grain. If ( tho 100,000 Juto mlllls not to be built then the tax should not be levied. If i( is levied and collected It should not lloidle. The writer may not be an ex pert at managing scch matters, but he Is pretty euro no private business would bo managed In this way. There is no good reason whythojuto mill, 'which was a sop thrown to tbo farmers to pulllato tbo other acts of this lato legis lature, should not bo erected and iu dpemtlon before this, or at least in time to sell tho farmers bags In tlnn for this season's crop, as was so confidently promised a few months ago by Its champions. There Is also a great loss to tho state from the hundreds of con victs at tho state prison not being em ployed, It will be said money comes Iu slowly aud If warrants were issued to pay for tho work as it preceeds they would havo to bear Intercut. Be that as it may, tho Interest on oven a hun dred thousand dollars of jute mill war rants would but be a bagatelle com pared with ameliorating the depressed agriculturists by giving tbem cheaper grain bags to haul their 60 cent wheat to markot in. Tho legislature certain ly Intended to give the Immense grain crops of our country an opportunity to bo marketed moro cheaply. It Is truo thoy did not opon tho Columbia and Willamette rivers to the sea. But they passed an appropriation bill of S 105,000 to give tho farmers cheaper grain bags. If thoro wasoeratlme when tho farm ers needed to get their grain to market cheaply it is at presout. Congressman Blnger Herman Is sub jected to some criticism at present on account of his tackllug the finance qucs est Ion It is difficult for a public man to reveal to much ignorance on that ques tion too not bo rewarded by a largo vote fur his revelations, Besides Mr. Herman must uot bo taken too seri ously. But a few years ago a politician mado a canvass of tho state on the Issue of courts of arbitration to settle difficulties between labor and capital. He got tho entire labor vote and was elected by a large majority. That was the last ever heard of the subject. He never believed In It. Ho shrewdly .took advautage of a popular olamor and rode lu ou the wave of an excite ment over a proposition which he never Intended should be relieved. He was himself a largo employer and the last man Iu tho world to submit bis aflalrs to the arbitration of anyoae.
