At 1 o'clock this morning tlio firing com menced. Suddenly, after twenty-Ilvo minutes of firing, a sheet. of, flame burst out, followed by a terrible de tonation. Evidently the attacking patty were using dynamite. East of the engine house are several tanks of fuel oil, the attack was concentrated on this point, and finally succeeded There was a sheet of flame and sputtering, as though of blazing powder. The engine room was In flames, A few moments later the clang of thoilre engines was heard coming up the street. When the hose was being un reeled, three men leaped fromhround the coroner of the fence. "Drop that hose," was the command, rca. three rifles were levelled on the men'. The firemen fell back. Meanwhile the flames grew fiercer and fiercer Men in the shaft house were finally driven from their fort, but fought to the last. Hundreds were ready to assist, but held at bay by the assassins "and fire bugs. But presently, iis great jshects of flame rolled over the build ihga the firemen rallied and hundreds of cltl zens. armed with rifles appeared and guarded tlie fire department and vol unteers. All attention was dpvoted to saving houses in the vicinity, but in spite of every effort at least four dwellings on East Eighth street were destroyed. At 3:30 a. m: an attack was made on the Emmett mine. There were oyer 100 shots fired but the attack was repulsed and po lives lost. . TROOPS FOB LEADVILLK. Denver, Sept. 21. Three special trains were dispatched from Denver tills forenoon carrying troops and sup plies to Leadville. THE NEWPORT CLAM BAKE. Leadville, Sept. 21. At 1 o'clock this morning, three heavy explosions aroused tlie sleepers in tlie eastern part of the city lor blocks around the Coronado mine, which is the one that first resumed operations, and which was heavily barricaded, and well stocked with provisions and arms. The explosions were followed by a fusllade of ride shots, apparently from within tlie barricade, and rapid but Irregular shots from the outside, ap parently from a widely scattered at tacking force, who were on hand to protect tlie retreat of the dynamiters. The shooting lasted for ten minutes and all was silent for about five min utes, when desultory tiring was re newed, and lias been kept up ever since. At this writing, an explosion was heard soundiug like dynamite. OLD RIOTORS. Leadville, Colo., Sept. 21. It is said the men who fired the Coronado shaft house, this morning, and who attacked the Emmett mine are miners from tlie Coeur d'Alene country, who were engaged in the riots there four years ago. FURTHER DETAILS. Leadville, Colo., Sept. 21. Five lives at least were sacrificed in the fighting and work of destruction at the Coronado mine and Emmett mine. Following is a list of dead and injured; Dead. Bert Meir, James Benson,both mines, employed in Coronado, killed by explosion they were identified only by papers found on their bodies. Dying, William Okeefe, foreman of hose company, shot through the stomach; J. Higglns, miner, employed In Coronado, shot eight times In arms and stomach; John Malioney, miner, shot through tlie stomach; Frank Telle and Martin Scott, both Coro nado miners, injuries not fatal. Ma honey who was shot near the Emmett mine, claims he was there merely as a spectator. At least three or tlie attacking party at tlie Emmett mine were hit with bullets, but were carried away by comrades. Tlie Coronado people heard of the coming trouble last night, but with the supposition that an attack was to be made at the Emmett. Soon after the destruction was commenced many citizens responded quickly, armed with rifles and shot guns, but they couid do little fighting against fire and dynamite. Foreman Okeefe was shot from behind, just after he turned on a strem of water at the Coronado. To-day hundreds of miners sav they will go to work at once. They bitterly denounce the extremists and say their action lost the miners htrike. The arrival of the militia is anx iously awaited despite the apparent calm. Local companlesi have been to the .hills, and armed citizens are patrollng the streets. The city council today, decided to aid the state officers in apprehending the rioters. At a mass meeting this afternoon th'e lawless element will be denounced and it will be demanded that the troublesome men leave camp. Given Sunday In Honor of U. S. Sen. ator J. H. Mitchell.

St. Louis, Sept. 14. It was my privilege to be In St. Louis during tlio great demonstration when Bryan spoke to the multitudes last Saturday evening, nnd such crowds us were on the streets arid at tlio meetings I have never before coino In contact .with. He arrived In the city at 0.15 p. in., and the throng was so great that his committees could hardly; .reach the train. At 8 o'clock ho speko at Concordia Park to about 25,000 people. Hero I had n good seat In the press gallery, and enjoyed the feast of tlio season. Tlio speaker was tired, nnd as he spoke the sweat rolled off his face like it docs from Til Ford's when bela bors with n Jury. Mr. Bryan made no effort at oratory, but his eVery word and Htatoment appealed to tlio vast assembly as to one man. For thirty minutes lie held them In tho very best f humor, when the vast throng grow wild with applause his one movement was sufficient to Bllcnco them for tho reception of more of his hard logic and horso sense. At the close of his talk a represen tative of the Journeyman horso-shoers association of,St. Louls,prescnted tho great speaker with a beautiful silver horseshoe. This ho received with su perb grace, and his felicitous response in accepting the gift was a gem. Ills words were filled with a kindness that went to every heart as though they had been addressed to tlio indi vidual instead of a seething mass. At 0 o'clock Mr. Bryan spoke ut tlio greut auditorium, where McKlnley was nominated, and where tho Pop ulists had tendered the great Nebras ka!) an endorsement. Tlie building web packed, as were tho streets four blocks In each direction from It. Here ho made the great speech of tho evening, and tho ovation given him was greater than 'any thing of the kind ever bctore witnessed In St. Louis. The last meeting of the evening was at another park where it Is Bald 40,000 to 50,000 people had congregated. Here tho platform, all except the corner upon which the speaker stood, collupsed, and tho panlo which followed practi cally broke up the meeting. Tho speaker jumped Into his carriage, and had the crowd fairly quieted, when the thundering cheers startled tho team which cut a circle through the crowd, and when gotten under control the committee drovo away with Mr. Bryan, and his spceclt was but fairly begun. The crowd was disappointed, and started for the Planters hotel, where u small fraction of tyiem were gratified by sight of the great orator. The intense strain under which Mr. Bryan Is living must be something awful, yet he appears equal to the emergency always, physically as well as In his ability to entertain. When in St. Louis on his previous visit, at the time of McKInley's nomination, Mr. Bryan could get only a back room in a small hotel, and was unknown to the public. Today he Is tho Hon of all. Even at church Mr. Bryan Is not free from tho homago , which the charm of his simple manner carries with It. On Sunday qui to a thousand pcoplo were gathered on the sidewalks In front of the Grand Avenue Presbyter Ian church to see him. There was no room on the luside. Every pew was filled and mi were the gallery scats. There never was such Uvcrowd m the pretty stono house of '.worship, and people eagerly sough tmjnilsslon who had never been Inside of Itliefmc. The poll te ushers accommodated every body that it was possible to seat. Ladies largely predominated Jn the congregation, and a score or more of decrepit old men, who looked ,as if they hud not iccii able to got to church for.yraisiiQbhJetl down the aisles nnd rfotth.d In. ihulr pawn to worship the Sin lnur yf mankind and incidentally to admire William" J. Bryan.. -. . . Tlie choir was singing tlie last verse of the opening hymn when Mr. Bryan entered. As tho last strains of the organ died away Rcy. Mr. Cannon roso and read the thirty-seventh psalm, and the reading was followed by the congregation sliiging, "Arise, O King," In which Mr. Bryan joined. Ills vocal accomplishments have not been cultivated with the euro that his elocutionary powers have, but he has u full, rich voice and "carries a tune" very well In a general chorus. At the conclusion of tlio services an tinusal scene uccurred. People in nd Joining pews crowded around to shako Mr. Bryan's hand. Colonel Martin tried for a tlmetointrodncothcm,but thoy came too fast, Mr. Bryan gavo his sore right hand to the ladies aud tho hefty left to tho men. Ho stood in the aisle at his pow and shook hands for several minutes, and then Rov.Cannon camo down, he was ntro duced and led htm down In tho open before altar, so that tho eager mon, woman and children could grasp his hand and pass on out tholoft entrance. Tho handshaking in front of the altar lasted for fully 10 minutes, and as) pcoplo passed out one door a stream of them crowded hi tho next. Mr. Bryan and Colonel Martin saw they were In for It, and u Sergeant of police came to tlio rcscuo and with several gentlemen took Mr. Bryan by the arm and forced their way out of the church. And then Mr. Bryan saw what ho had never seen boforo. For blocks about tho church was u great multi tude, soveral thousand, and wholly forgetful of tho Sabbath they cheered him as lustily as ho had been cheered tho night before at Concordia und Sportsman's Parks and tho Auditor ium. The police pulled him through the crowd from the church door to his carrlago at tho curb, but men held the horses, and for several minutes ho sat In the carrlago shaking hands with men and women who struggled to reach him. Colonel Martin, who had been left behind In tho Jam at the church door, finally reached tho carriage and got Into ltaud the horses dashed away amid the cheers of the enthusiastic church goers. A. F.

Martin's jewelry store, In this city, Is a lie by about seven hundred million dollars Mr. Martin would not tell a lie, but In tills political campafgn a McKlnley goldbug who would tell tho truth could not live in his party a minute, no would bo kicked out or asked to resign at tho first meeting of the "worklngmcn's club."
