Somebody ought to issue a bull
against the comet to prevent him
from slashing around promiscuously
with his tail.
Since the Bee smashed the Ko
ops slate several standing candi
dates are promenading our streets
with sad, solemn and melancholy
countenances.
The We&icher Jbrf,CarlShurz's
St Louis paper, admonishes the
Germans of Missouri not to allow
themselves to be inveigled into a
preposterous alliance with the Bour
bon Democracy by what the Jb
calls excessive beer madness ? Ger
man Hepublicans will do well to
profit by thisadmonition.
Councilman (President) Gib
son publicly acknowledged that he
can never relish a dish of ice cream
or an oyster stew without having a
copy of the Bee to flavor them and
he only patronizes restaurants that
sabseribe for the Bee. Such is also
the habit of the Ko-ops, who
buy their lager only where they
keep the Bee.
Twenty thousand dollars is all
thai an insurance agent demands of
the Omaha Bee for a blasted repu
tation. That agent has been slan
dered and his character damaged
to that exteat, but not alto
gether ruined, and yet we are
astonished that the demand i
go moderate. If it had been a light
ning rod pedler or a sewing ma
chine agent Kosewater would not
have been let off so easily, and our
advice to him now Is to pay that
amount and settle up before it is
too late. Any man who is capable
of saying anything mean enough to
damage the reputation of the aver
age insurance agent ought to be
hung. Kearney News.

THE GARDEN CITY IN FUMES!
Another Disastrous Fire.
Full Particulars of the Great
Conflagration.
Chicago, June 15. .
The fire commenced in that por
tion of the city, known as Chey
enne, on Taylor, between Twelfth
and Clark streets, and Fourth ave
nue. This part of the city consists
of the worst rookeries imaginable,
most of which were occupied as
houses of ill-fame. The alarm
struck from the corner of Twelth
and Clark streets, at half-past three
o'clock, and when, in a few moments
afterwards, the first engine arrived,
the whole area from 503 to 523
Clark street, through to Third ave
nue, was in names. r
The wind blew a gale-from 4he
southwest, and in spite of the ef
forts of the firemen, the fire crossed
Third avenue, communicating to
Queens Chapel (colored) on the east
side of that street The spread of
the flames southward on Clark was
checked at 5:27, although the build
ings from No. 527 to, 537 were badly
damaged. The building on the
northeast corner of Clark and Tay
lor caught fire at about four o'clock,
anu slowly burned northward till it
reached No. 467, where It was
checked. At the southern limit on
the west side of Third avenue is the
large distillery of G. C. Russell &
Co. This rookery was saved through
the exertions of the working men
of the place, thus presenting the
spread: of the conflagration south
ward on that street. - '
From this point the fire spread
with fearful rapidity in a north
easterly direction. At about five
thirty it had burned through to the
corner of Taylor and State streets.
The strange phenomenen, namely
the jumping of flames and. com
municating to buildings whole
squares distant was again witnessed
on this occasion. While the fire
had not crossed to the north side of
Taylor, Mr. Pryor's millinery on
the northeast corner of Polk street
and Third avenue, commenced
to burn, and in spite of the exertions
of an engine and numberless citizens
was soon burning from top to bot
tom. Shortly afterwards, at about G
o'clock, the German Methodist
Church, on the cornel of Third
avenue and Polk street, caught fire
in the'st'eeple. t about $ o'clock
it had burned throukh to Btate
street Nothing could be done to
stop the fury of the flames to the
north, therefore the attention of the
firemen was mainly directed io the
south, And they checked the spread.
ins of the fiafdes in JhaJ direction.
The southern limits 'of thVffre on
Fourth avenue are No, 264 on the
west side, and No. 253 on the east
side, about ten houses north of Sixth
street.
At about half past: 6 o'clock the
fire crossed Suite street, communis
caung to toe Duuoing no. ouw. op;
site Taylor, and thence burned no:
on Dotn sides or state. On
corner of Wabash avenue and Peck
Court, at 7 o'clock, when the tire
was going at a rapid rate towards
Wab' avenue, a reporter met
Jjampbell juijj poljce Superintendent
Ben'm. Mr. Campbell wanted 'to
blow up Bom of the buildings, but
isenm declined to aid, as ne nad not
the Dower to do so. Mr. CamDb
said he had spoken to the Mayo:
abpijt he samething, but the Mayor
decline to fiq any eucn tning. rue
reporter passed to Wabash avenue
and there met Mayor Co vin, who
seemed to have lost all energy arid
powr. Ie said he could do nothing.

At 7:30 the flames had reached
the St James Hotel, and it was evi
dent that in less than ten minutes,
the interior would be in flames. At
this moment, just as the cornice of
the hotel caught fire, Mayor Colvin
appeared and gave orders to blow up
the hotel. The Mayor, surrounded
by half a dozen persons ot different
grades, gave this order to the police
men, who went off to hunt up the
persons in charge of the powder,
while the Mayor pounded on the
door of the State Street Savings
Bank to inform the custodians
on the Inside of his intentions.
On being asked what buildings he
intended to blow up the Mayor said
he would if necessary blow up all on
the south side of Van Buren from
State to Michigan avenue. In
answer to a question whether he
had any one competent to do the
work thoroughly he replied some
what angrily, that of course he had.
The competency of the individual
was shown about twenty minutes
later,- when the slow match was
"ighted. The crowd had been
moved back nearly a block; three
engines stationed at this corner
had been drawn off, necessitating
idleness for at least fifteen minutes.
The powder wan carried into the
centre of the store, a match was
lighted and about half a dozen per
sons scampered out of the front
door as if fleeing from the wrath
that was to come. Tne crowd nei
its breath, and those nearest th
doomed buildintr crammed in
ways and behind walls totain
protection from the showerjirhich
would be apt to follow the explosion.
The lamentable fizzle that?1 did
follow was only effected in
thoroughly preparing the biUdlng to
burn rapidly. There was snuffled
thud, and scattering puf&jufjanoke,
and broken glass flew eut of the
front of the store intojfthe street

assume the proportions of that
night But the fire .depart-
were promptly,.?, hand, and
s oattunror tne names,
finally suldued, with on-
loas above stated.
Great excitement prevailed for a
time, as it seemed inevitable that
the flames would sweep toward the
heart of the city.
To-day's fire occurred from four
to seven p. m., on Milwaukee av
enue, between Sangamon and Sprat
streets, destroying about twenty-five
houses, a majority of them being
frame shanties. The locality was
inhabited by the poor classes of
Germans. The loss is probably
about $60,000, and the insurance is
not more than one-fth that
amount
The fire in northwest Chicago
originated in the smoke house of
Dugair's packing establishment.
Almost an entire block was con
sumed, but the buildings were of
i the poorer sort The fire raged for
an hour and a naif. A planing
mill, vlth some valuable machinery
u'os destroyed, the total loss being
placed at $G0,Q00. The flames are
now completely under control.
During the progress of this Are two
attempts at incendiarism in the
same neighborhood were discovered
and were frustrated. In one case
kerosene oil was used.
At about o'clock an alarm from
Wabash avenue and Madison street
was sounded, but the fire proved io
be of small moment

The National Bepublicau this
morning publishes the following
letter from Senator Allison to a
friend in this city: "Dubuque,
Iowa, July 15. I am sorry that Mr.
Shepard was temporarily sacrificed,
as he has done so much for the city.
He can afford to wait, however, as
no stain is cast upon his honor or
his integrity by the investigation or
report Yours very-truly,
Signed W. B. Allison.
New York, July 15.
The Beecher-Tilton sensation is
one of the most prominent topics.
In this city, and the articles daily
appearing in the newspapers, serve
to bring out every new develop
ment of Interest each day. It has
been generally understood that the
Golden Age was "still the
property of Tilton, and that
he had simply retired from
the editorial management, re
linquishing the same to W. T.
Clark. The latter, however, in a
letter to the Word, informs the
public generally that he has pur
chased that paper, which is now ed
ited by hiniself, and that for its
manifold sheetings and faults since
the first of July, he is alone respon
sible. The Golden Age, neverthe
less, continues to defend Tilton in
his present troubles.
