LouihTiLLE, Dec. 1L While the fire
men were raking away the ruins of the
Boone Paper company at l:i Wednes
day moiuing there came a second ter
rilio explosion in' the Cauiberger, Strong
Sl Co, building, four stories high. In
in instant ttimas broke out from every
floor and shot through the rocf.
The fire must have been smoul
dering for .several hours in the cellar
and w hen each ot the tiur stories had
been filled with heated air and smoke
the explosion followed. The following
firms were burned out: Bamberger,
.Strong Si Co., boots and shoes, $125,000,
insurance, SKW.OOO; Bliss, ffjlson, & Co.
furnishers, loes, $50,003, insurance, 40,
0 0; Weller, Woodfook & Pave, boats
tind shoes, $75,C0O, insurance, unknown;
Johann Blaise Sz Sons, hats, loss 810,0.0,
It was with great difJculty that the
fireman presented the tiames from
spreading further. A number of peo
ple were sleeping in the upper rooms of
the building, but all escaped. Oae fire
man is missing and he may have been
crushed by a falling wall.
Later information shows that a num
ber of Sreuiau were caught under a fall
ing wall ot Bamberger, Strong A Co'e
building. Fire Chief Hughes and Cap
taiu Weatberford were injured. Four
dead fireman lay under the walls and
fur ethers were badjy hurt.
At 8 o'clock another fatal fire was rag
ing at F. A. Menu & Co.'e wholsale
candy and fancy grocery house, a square
above the Boone Taper company's
building. The origin of the fire is a
mystery. Forty girls were at work oc
the fourth floor and all were not able
to escape. The bodies of six girls have
already been taken out, burned almost
beyond identification. G. T. Menn, a
brother of the senior member of the
firm, is supposed to have been burned
to death, and the firemen think that at
least five other girls will be found as
soon as a thorough search is made.
Tne fire cut off escape by the stair
way leading from the fourth fioor, where
.he girls were at work. Many of them
, leaped from the windows to a second
story projection and escaped with brok
en limbs and bruised bodies. Others
got out unhurt.
With its forces weakened and demor
alized bv the accident of the early
mjrning, the fire department was called
to the disaster at the candy factory to
add to the causualties and confusion
Chief Hughes, of the lire department,
was so badly hurt in the accident that
he may not recover, lie and He Dry
Weatberford, the chief's assistant, while
going 10 tne nre, were run into by a
salvage corps wagon and their buggy
was smashed. Both were trampled by
the horses, but the injuries of Weather-
ford were not so bad as those of the
chief. A number of other firemen were
b idly injured.
At the candy shop, in the face of
thefe disasters, the firemen stood brave
ly to their work and within another
half hour the flames were under control,
but within this time half a score of lives
were sacrificed. The lira ij supposed to
have arisen from one of the cii:d fur
nace, which possibly exploded. The
flames communicated with the big stock
of Christmas fireworks, the first explo
sion among the fireworks scattering fire
brands all over the stock, fiercely blaz
ing almost immediately.
The bodies of the girls were removed
as soon as possible to the nearest under
taking establishments. Two of thegirls
were identified as May Walsh and
Amelia Dickey. .Great confusion exists.
In Main street, where the principal
wholesale traffic of the city goes on, is
blockaded and business is almost at a
The work of searching for the bodies
in the buildings destroyed by fire Wed
nesday was still going on at midnight
The missing firemen are now believed
to be in to ruins of the Boose Paper
company building, wedged between the
hug piles of paper that Billed the cel
lar. How the fires originated is still uncer
tain. Thers were only two office fires
at tb Boon Paper company's building,
and it is certain the flames originated
at neither of these. At Mann k Co. 's a
number of first war burning, but none
account for th starting of th conflag
ration. It is now doubtful if there was
an xpioaioo at Bamberger, Strong A

Bi.eliK, Dec. 12. In the rexbotag
Jbancellor Von Caprivi opened the de
bate on the new commercial treaties,
making a strong appeal in"favorof their
adoption. He dwelt upon the fart that
the present import and export relations
would ruin both employers and em
ployes. The measures under discussion
were necessary to preserve Germany's
trade and commerce.
Continuing, the chancellor said the
immediate effect of the treaties cpon ti e
finances of the empire would be the d.
minutiveon the revenue nearly 18,000,-
000 marks. This was a matter that re
quired budget consideration. Speaking
on the question of differential treat
ment of countries not included in the
treaties, he said it was needless to speak
o: Kus3ia. ihe lamentable uislrers in
that country would not be removed fo:
some time, and it was useless to discuss
what would bs done afterwards. At re
gards the United States, the two govtrn-
ments had decided to continue on the
basis .of the arrangements of 1S85,
whereby the United States received the
most favored national treitment.
In connection with the alleged distrew
in Germany, he said the agriculture of
the country ctu d very v e 1 bei r wi'.bout
r'iBi reduction in the tariff rate of 1
marks. In the ma'.ter of wine it bad
been the aim to compel sharp competi
tion against artificial wines, sennapps
and so-called ' French claret," so as to
provide on German soil a battlefield for
Italian wines against those of France.
The reduction in the duties on the nec
essaries of life was of advantage to the
Adverting to the McKinley law, the
chancellor said: "We wish the countries
of Europe to preserve their independ
ence against America. For this pur
pose they must unite together. The
treaties just concluded will give a sure
guarantee for the future.
Herr Von Catige, a conservative op
posed the chancellor's policy. He re
gretted that the negotiators showed
that they had only free trade counsel
lors. He looked forward to the ruin of
the German agriculturist.
The chancellor responded that he had
been aiced by the same advisors that
assisted Prince Bismarck.
At a meeting of conservative mem
bers o.f the reichstag twelve voted in fa
vor of, twenty-four against, the treaties.
Herr Kardoff read a telegjam staling
that Bismarck did not intend to appear
during the debate.

Harris! una, Dec. 12. At a meeting
of the World's fair managers of Pennsyl

Kven Children Polluted.
Madrid, Dec. 12. Much indignation
is felt here at the news of the actrocious
treatment of slaves in Morooco, and es
pecially of the children captured in re
cent raids by the sultan. It is said that
the sultan is preparing for a similar raid
early in 1802 upon tribes that have cot
complied with his orders. Advices from
Eez state that of hundreds cf children
of Fez Bince the return of the sultan
from his recent expedition, ill bad been
subjected to barbarous treatment. The
Spanish minister will probably be in

London, Dec. 12. Some alarm has
been caused in Cublin by the allegation
that oysters set on a tidal bank a few
miles from the city are not healthy, hav
ing been pollutted by eewage carried
over the bank by the incoming tide, and
that typhoid fever may be traced in one
instance to eating the oysters. The sub
ject is one of considerable ir terest, as
their oyster bees are known to be liable
to similar pollution from the sewage of
cities and towns.

Saaxciui, Dee. li The report tl at
the Mongolian lebels have suffered to
other defeat is confirmed. They were
followed jp so dose y by General NVh,
after the battle of Chac- Vang, that they
made another atpnd in desperation anJ
were driven, with great slaughter, be
fore the imperial tnxips. The partic
ulars of the tiht have not jet been re
ceived. Europeans here express the
opinion that the rebels would have sur
rounded or dispersed but for their
knowledge that no mercy would be
bhown to them.
Information from rebel sources is to
the effect that Certain Mongolian tribes
were initiate! into the rebellion by the
increased exactions and greater rigar of
the Ch nt-se authorities. The Chinese
have lately been establishing a stn ier
administration in the portions of the
empire adjoining Russian territory, oud
the Mongols have been brought more
closely within the imperial jurisdiction.
The motive of this is to present a com
pact defense to possible aggresbions by
Li Hung Chang has ordered the pun
ibhment of all who were engnged in the
massacre of native Christian at Tien
Tsin, and several rioters have been cap
tured and executed, the Pekin govern
ment having granted leave for immedi
ate bebeadiDg in ail such cases.
Europeans aie convinced that the
anti-Christian riots are caused in many,
if not ail cases, by the hatred which the
superior class of Chine bear toward
the foreigners', this hatred being
grounded on jealously for'foreign in
telligence and influence. The literati
are the promoters of the disturbances
by their appeals to the ignorgnce of the
people with stories about the babes be
ing killed and their eyes and tongues
taken out foe medicine.
It is said that at San eh i the murder
ers of the Belgian and native Christi
ans carried about the mutiliated body
of a child in order to further excite the
fury of the popuiace. The body was
that of a child of Christian parents,
brutally killed by the rioters themselves.
It served the purpose of exciting the
people and urging them on to further
borrcrs and cruelities. ThiB belief in
the child slaying propensity of the
Christians appears to prevail every
where that the missionaries have pene
trated. The secret societies, it is assert
ed by the missionaries, are not aimed so
much at foreigners as at the Chinepe
government, but the mandarins and
literati try to give the impression to
Europeans that the atrocities for which
they are themselves responsible were
perpetrated by the so-jieties.

as to the alleged resemblaocrt between
him and the head of the dynamiter.
He declared that he could see no rtsem

that the head was that of John Herbert

Washington, Dec. 12. Senator Stew
n t introduced a bill supplementary to
the Chinese exclusion act. It makes it
unlawful, after the passage of the act,
for Bny Chinese laborer to enter or re
maiu in the United States for any pur
pose whatever. The act, it is provided,
shall preclude the entry into the United
States not only of Chinese laborers who
have been here, but of all who have
been here and departed; also all Chi
nese persons who may desire to pass
through or over the United States for
any purpose whatever.
Senator Cullom introduced a bilt on
the same s jbject. It provides that for
ten years after the passage of the act
the coming of Chinese laborers to the
United States be suspended. During
such time it shall be unlawful for any
Chinese laborer to come or, having eo
come, to remain within the United
States. Every Chinese person other
than a laborer who may be entitled by
the treaty or 1800 or this act to come
within the United States shall obtain
permission of and be identified as so
entitled by the Chinese government of
which at the time such Chinese shall be
a subject. These certificates shall be
issued by a United States diplomatic or
consular representative. The provisions
of the act apply to all Chinese, except
diplomatic or con3ular officers and their
attendants. Chinese found unlawfully
within the jurisdiction of the United
States shall be removed to .China.
Chinese now in th is country must ob
