Great Fire in Chicago.
Chicago, Not. 25. Two disastrous
fires have occurred here within twenty-four
hours in large buildings in the
center of the business section,supposed
when constructed, to have been prac
tically fireproof. In the first there
was a total loss of not less than $630,
000, while there were many narrow
escapes. In the second the loss aggre
gated at least 3350,000, while six fire
men were buried under falling walls
and probably killed and three other
persons were probably fatally injured.
The first fire started in the Excelsior
building, owned by Warren Shringer,
about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
and destroyed it and the adjoining
eight story building in less than an
hour. Thirteen valuable manufactur
ing plants in the two buildings were
destroyed and hundreds of men and
women employed in the factories had
The second fire broke out this morn

Market street extending in an VL" to
Yau Uuien street. The first and sec
ond floors were occupied by Stein &
Heirs, clothing; the third and fourth
by Henry Newman, clothing; fifth,
Amazon Clothing Company; sixth,
Fallows fc Co., collars and cuffs; sev
enth, Townsend & Gale, clothing and
dry goods and the National Thread'
Corn puny. Each of the firms employed
women and as soon as the presence of
the fire was made known all were
thrown into a state of great excite
ment. Panic reigned everywhere and
before some of the girls could be re
strained they had climbed out of the
windows and jumped. One of the first
to apjar at a thiid story window was
Nellie Turner. iShe screamed for help
and some one on the ground shouted
for her to jump. She did not do this,
nowever, but left the window. A mo
ment later she appeared at another,
near a fire escaoe, and climed upon the
sill. She got on the fire escape and
began to descend. Officer Flaherty
was also on the escape between the
first and second story, and when he
saw the girl above him he started
up to aid her. Ue was too late. She
suddenly lost her balance and fell
headlong to the street. Flaherty
tried to catch her, but could not reach
her. She was picked up almost un
conscious and carried into a drug
store, and stimulants were adminis
tered, but she did not revive. She
was internally injured and will die.
Kittie Landgraf jumped from a fourth
story window with Harry Neil, 17
years old, and both were internally
injured and may die.
The fire seemed to have broken
loose on several floors of the big build
ing at the same instant, so rapidly did
The fire started on the fourth floor
it is thought, in rooms occupied by
Stein & Biers. Thirty girls were em
ployed there and all made frantic
efforts to escape. Among the first to
come to their aid was "Joe," the jani
tor. He assured the girls that if they
would remain quiet and composed they
would all get out safely. Ue led as
many of them as he could induce to
accompany him to the main stairway
and tLey reached the street without
The escape of Olga Kellar is re
garded as marvelous. When the room
where she was working began to fill
with smoke she ran to one of the win
dows overlooking Van Iiuren street
and climbed out on the ledge, clinging
with one hand to the narrow strip of
wood on the outside of the sash. She
saw a few feet, below her the ladder on
which two firemen stood, and she pre
pared to jump, but was restrained
until Captain Hermanson had almost
reached her. Then she released her
hold on the window siding, having
been overcome by the smoke. Her
manson braced himself and seized the
girl with his right arm. He narrowly
escaped falling. From hundreds of
throats cheers were heard as he de
scended the ladder with hi3 human

Thirteen Chicago Manufacturing Concerns
Wiped Oat by the Fire King:.
Chicago, Nov. 23. The Excelsior
building, at Canal and Jackson streets,
and an eight story brick structure im
mediately adjoining it, at 171 and 173
South canal street, were completely
destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon.
Not less than thirteen valuable manu
facturing plants located in the two
buildings were lost, including the
company, the Charles Emench Feather
company and the large establishment
of Strauss, Eiseudrath & Drom. The
total loss is not less than $620,000.
The firo was a hard one to subdue
and attended with no little danger.
The escape of several hundred girls
from the Strauss, Eisendrath & Drom
factory was made possible only by
coolness and decision. A number of
the girls suffered from fright and sus
tained slight bruises. Before the fight
with the fire was ended Fire Chief
Sweeney had exhausted the regular
calls for engines and had to specially
summon twenty more.

have been the result of this trouble,

which killed his parent was fired acci

roborates this statement. His sister,
however, who was also present says
the shot was fired . with murderous in

Greenbacks and Raise the Duty on
They're Full of Fight.
Washington, Nov. 22. Secretary
Carlisle's New York Chamber of Com
merce speech has elicited responsive
defiance from the silver men of the
senate. They are emphatic in assert
ing that the greenbacks cannot be re
tired. Their program, however, goes
much further than merely blocking
the way to the accomplishment of the
"We are determined," said Senator
Dubois of Idaho, "to provide for the
revenues by placing a duty on wool.
In doing this we not only relieve the
treasury, but we do an act of justice
to every sheep raiser in the country
and remove the cloud of bankruptcy
from the great ranches of the West.
.Senator Sherman will have to support
the proposition, for his State is vitally
concerned. This wool bill will go to
the President, and, of course, he will
veto it. Then the Republican Con
gress, having done its duty in the
premises, can afford to let him find
his way out of his difficulty as best he
can. lie will issue more bonds and
that will revive the whole silver ques

when he says the question of free

dead. He will find, if he only waits
long enough, that the National con
vention of his own party will adopt a
free coinage platform next spring.
SHERMAN ON PL ATT.
The Ohio Senator Talks Freely About the
New York Ross.
New York, Nov. 22. In an inter
view here yesterday Senator Sherman
talked freely about different public
topics. Among other things he said:
"I would like to read Mr. Plat's an
swer to what I stated concerning the
national convention of 1S8S," he said,
in reply to a question. "The fact is,
I desire to know just what his ex
planation would be. It would be
interesting to me. Personally, I have
nothing against him, and what I
stated in my book was without malice,
and merely introduced ' as a matter of
history. I felt that in the history I
should tell things as they were, and in
a dispassionate way. "
The Senator stated that he had met
ex-President Harrison and Warner
Miller and had had pleasant chats with
them. He added that Mr. Miller came
to his room and they talked over many
of the incidents of the convention of
186S. Mr. Miller's recollection of
events tallied with the Senator's.
"The New York delegation," added
the Senator, "had a banquet on the
Saturday before the convention of
1888, and after Senator Miller had
made a speech, they all agreed to sup
port me.- I received a telegram to
that effect. Sunday intervened and
in the meantime Elkins and other
friends of Harrison got Mr. Piatt to
agree to vote for him on the first bal
lot Monday. The result is known. I
have no charges to make' against ex
President Harrison and our relations
are pleasant. Whatever bargains or
promises his friends might have made,
he did not sanction, because he
absolutely refused to appoint Mr.
Piatt secretary of the treasury.
Promises may have been made
in regard to Federal patronage
in this State and that I do not crit
icise. Mr. Piatt's men, I believe, re
ceived prominence, notably the col
lectorship. The acme of Mr. Piatt's
ambition seems to be to hold the port
folio of the secretary of the treasury."

SLAIN BY THE SPANISH.
Women and Infants in Arms Cruelly Put
Z. Tampa, Fla., Nov. 22. Colonel Fer
nando Figuredo, the Cuban leader of
this city, has received a letter from
navanah giving details of atrocities
committed by Spaniards in Matanzas
province. Cololel Melino, who com
manded a Spanish regiment, recently
encountered the advance guard of
Gomez's army in Matanzas and was de
feated. While soldiers under Melino
were in retreat they met a group of
women and children near a little town
called Cayopino. As the soldiers
passed one of the women made a sneer
ing reraork about the Spaniards. The
remark was overheard by the soldiers
and so tenraged them that they fell
upon the women and children and
butchered every one of them. There
were ten women and about a dozen
children in the group.
The letter says that the Spaniards,
after shooting down their victims,
stabbed them with bayonets, inflicting
the most horrible wounds. One baby
was killed at its mother's breast, and
tas bullet that passed through the in
fant also killed the mother. Colonel
Melino made no report of the butch
but two of the women murdered
were wives of Spaniards engaged in
the sawmill business in Mantanzas.
When the husbands learned how their
loved ones had been butchered they
wrote to Captain General Campos, in
forming him of the affair and demand
ing that Colonel Melino be punished.
It is said that Campos has ordered that
Melino be court martialed and it is
thought the butcher will be sentenced
to death, as the massacre is condemned
as bitterly by Spaniards as by Cubans.-

Statistics of Interest Compiled by an Ex
pert A Precedent for Next Year.
Washington, Nov. 21. The inter
pretation of election statistics has
been developed into an interesting
specialty by Frederick C. Waite, a
statistician expert in the Department
of Agriculture, who last night read to
the National Statistical Association
his fourth annual paper on - the sub
ject. He said: "Another tidal wave
of disapproval has been recorded
at the polls Of the three great
parties in the field two have received
a very much smaller percentage of the
total vote than in former years; while
the third, the stay-at-home party, has
made wonderful gains. For instance,
in Pennsylvania the vote of the Demo
crats has fallen to 282,481 from 446,033
in 1888, that of the Republicans to
456,745 from 526,081 in l88o, while the
vote of the stay-at-home party has in
creased to 610.000 from only 70,000 in
1888. In estimating the total vote
aliens, foreigners with first papers,
criminals, paupers, etc., have been de
ducted from the male taxables, 21
years or over.
In New York the stay-at-home
vote has increased from 75,000 in 1883
to 185,000 in 18'J2, 425,000 in 1894, and
510,000 this year. Even in Kentucky
it has increased from 55,000 in 1888 to
100,000 this year. In Massachusetts it
has increased from 80,000 in 1888 to
100,000 in 1892 and 230,000 this year.
In Ohio from 40,000 in 1888 to 115,000
in 1892 and to 18u,000 this year. The
increase in the stay-at-home vote has
been scarcely less marked in other
"As the election is the keyboard bj'
which the citizens of a continent ex
press and record their wishes their
hopes and their discontents we must
not expect to be able to comprehend
the intricacy of its workings, ex
cept as we analyze the returns
in the light of a half century or
so of election statistics. Turning to
my statistical chart, -Comparing
the political complexion of American
elections,' you sec, that during the
last twenty years, and also the twenty
years ending with the breaking up
of the Whig party, the Democrats car
ried every alternate presidential elec
tion, and yet were always defeated at
the intervening presidential election.
In other words, to the Democrats .1836
and 1876 brought victories at the polls;
1840 and 1880. defeats; 1844 and 1884,
victories; 1848 and 1888, defeats; 1852
and 1892, victories. In explanation of
these phenomena 1 may say the forces
which in presidential elections result
in the defeat of the party in power are
"First The dissatisfaction with the
party in power among the members of
the party out of power is so great that
they feel it to be their sacred duty to
'turn the rascals out.' On the other
hand, the adherents of the party in
power are constantly being disap
pointed. They feel that they have not
received anything like the care and
recognition which was promised.

and flow of enthusiasm among the ad
herents of a political party. Natural

A Knock-Oat for Butterine.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 2 i. There
will be no more Silver Churn and Jer
sey butterine after the 1st of January
next. A recent ruling of the Treasury
department, which has just been re
ceived at the packing bouses, prac
tically knocks the word butterine
out of the English language and de
clares that any brand that suggests a
cow, a churn or a dairy shall not be
used on the packing house substitute
for butter. Hereafter, then, the pack
ing house substitute for butter must
be known only as oleomargarine, its
original appellation, and in Missouri,
moreover, it must be white, without
any kind of coloring, for the Missouri
farmer attended to that in the Legis
lature last winter.

Among the popular society leader n East
Orange, N. J., Emma I Stoll, a canning
young maiden, stands in the foremost rank.
She is of a lovable disposition and the light
of the social set in which she moves.w For
two years she has been a sick girl from in
ternal troubles peculiar to women, and hav
ing recently recovered, has given our
reporter the following interesting account:
"Instead of improving under the care of
my physician I became worse. For five
weeks I was unable to get out of bed and
about six o'clock each morning I suffered
horribly. My lips were sore and lacerated
from the marks of my teeth, f cr In my efforts
to keep from screaming I sunk my teeth
deep into my lips. At such times I rolled
and tossed until the bed shook like an aspen
leaf and it finally got so serious that the
doctor I won't tell you his namegave me
some morphine pills to take. The very
thought of them now makes me shiver.
These morphine pills simply put me to sleep
for awhile and when I became conscious
again my agony was renewed.
"The pain in my stomach and back was
more than I could stand. 'Your blood is
poor,' said the doctor, 'take sulphur and mo
lasses,' and I did until it was a great won
der that I was not a molasses cake. It was
time wasted in taking it because I was not
benefited in the least; my suffering con
tinued, but by a mighty effort after being in
bed so long. I got up. Oh, but I was a sad
Eight then. From 113 pounds I had fallen
to ninety; my cheeks were pale and sunken
and I limped ; yes. actually hobbled from
the extreme pain in my side. Then I read
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
and the testimonials in the News inspired
me with hope. I got the pills and took
them. Before many days I began to im-
Jirove and before I had finished one box I
elt as if I could go out and walk for miles.
I soon stopped limping and through the
Pink Pills I soon bid goodbye to my head
aches while the pain in my stomach and
back slowly but surely succumbed to the
influence of these pills that seem to be abls
to persuade all pain to leave one's body.
Now I am as I used to be; well and strong,
lighthearted and merry but never without
the pills. See I have got some of them
now," and from a nearby desk she handed
out one of the boxes.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con
deased form, all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood and
restore shattered nerves. They are also a
specific for troubles peculiar to females,
such as suppressions, irregularities, and all
forms of weakness. They build up the
blood, and restore the glow of health to pale
and sallow cheeks. In men they effect a
radical cure in all cases arising from mental
worry, over-work, or excesses of whatever
nature. Pink Pills are sold in boxes (never
in loose bulk) at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50, and may be had of all druggists,
or direct by mail from Dr. Williams Medk
cine Company. Schenectadv. N. Y.
