Phllps Bondsmen Accepted.
Special Dispatch to the Bee.
NEW YORK , November 17,10 p. m.
Judge Davis , in the supreme court
to-day , accepted deputy sheriff James
Fay and Francis B. Spinola as bonds
men for Kenward Philp , who was
held in $5,000 bail on charge oi crim
inal libel in having written an edito
rial commenting on the Morby letter.
Both men proceeded to the district at
torney's office where the bond was
drawn up and signed.
It is said that a movement is on
foot to have the case brought before
the United States circuit court in New
York , which , it is understood , can
tike the matter in hand , because an
alleged Lindsay affidavit was procured
to influence the case there on trial.
Davenport's epecial work will be , if
possible , to work up a case of
subornation of perjury against W. W.
Pric > 5 , chairman of the Allegheny
county commit'ea , and a presidential
elector , who , according to the belief
of the chief supervisor of election ,
wes the central actor in the preparing
of Lindsay's affidavit. He had pre
pared it betore he had the witness to
swear to it Mr. Bliss was seen in the
postoffico this moruing with a bundle
of documents under his arm , and it
ivm at once presumed that be was
working up further testimony in con
nection with tbo Morey envelope. The
report that Mr. Philp had been oblig
ed to pevor bis connection with The
Truth , and that In consequence he
hud determined to make revelations of
a startling nature , is generally char
acterized as absurd.
The grand jury went Into session
at 11 o'clock this morning , and imme
diately summoned before them three
of the witnesses who are to offer evi
dence as a basis on which indictments
against Kenward Philp will be found ,
if found at all. These witnesses were
Col. Rock will , of Washington , who
testifud to his intimate relation with
Gen , Garneld at examinations. Dan
iel and Amos , all experts in hand
writing , and Samuel S. Morey , who
in ado a confession in which he ad
mitted himself to bo a perjurer. They
offered in substance the same testi
mony as at the examination , but the
grand jury had either not the time cr
patience to go into minute detail * , as
nonocf th'e gentlemen vero cloaited
with themfor , more than ten minutes.

NEW YORK , November 18,1 a. m.
George W. Newton , general sales
agent of the Lehigb Valley coal com
pany , said to-day that he thought the
prices would remain as they are at
.present all winter. They could not
afford to give coal away as they did
last season. Ho stated also that tbe
amount of stock on hand to consu
mer was at present smaller than it
had been for years. Tbe amount of
coal on hand at the mine was large
and there is no possible chance of a
famine. Representatives of other
companies conceded with Mr. New
ton's versions. All the anthracite
companies seem to stand in the same
position , and it is evident that they
effected some consolidation , so that
they would not run on each other as
they did last year.

ST. PETEB , Minn. , November 17.
4 p. m. The theory grenorally ac
cepted is that the asylum fire
started in the basement , in the north
west corner of the buildLig. Some
hold that it commenced from the atub
of a cigar or fire from the pipe of an
attendant. Others from the bursting
of a gasoline pipe , and others still
from a coil of steam pipe. It must
have burned some time before the
discovery , which , took place before
eight o'clockwhen one of the attend
ants observed smoke coming through
thp registers. .The investigation that
that the basement of the whole north
wing was in flames. First and moat
important is the'central building , four
stories , 60x120 feet. From this north
and east wings extended each with
returns and sub-wings. The north
wing , where the fire started ia three
stories in height , 165 feet long , with
two returns 40x70 and 30x60. This
wing was used for male patients > in
which were confined at the time of
the fire 270 patients. Through the
wings and returns the names spread
rapidly and a scene of
ensued beyond the power of pen to
adequately describe. Blinding smoke ,
shriekx , maledictions and maniacal
laughter of the frightened inmates ,
clatter and turmoil without , a pressing
crowd of people and a thousand and
ono thino.3 incident to such an occa
sion , made the scene as of hell turned
loose on earth , in the presence of
which the officers and help of the in
stitution were for a time powerless.
One of the citizens of St. Peter , among
the firat to reachtho burning building ,
said : "Oh , I cannot describe the horrible
rible scene. There were men at the
windows in the third story , son\e
Others making grimaces at us. The
groans and screams of the dying were
terrible. I went in with , an attend
ant and wo got ona mar. . Just as we
were leaving I saw Another and was
about to grab him when he rnahed
back in the midst of the flames and
smoke and to his doom. I was al
most suffocated. I then went around
with the attendant to another room ,
and we got one man. out half dead
and another dead , suffocated. I
went around to the north side of the
building and saw five or six jumping
up before the wind.ona of the bui id-
ing. Two of Dennis men and I. got
an axe , thin was in ( the first story , and
wo succeeded in. "breaking Cn'rough
two sets of ba-/s and rescued two
moro men. I then 8 ascended the
ladder to the second story ,
and after working twenty min
utes got a Jjole through. Thia room
contained a. Frenchman. Ho worked
like a gian.tin helping me to break thn
windows open. I got him out and
then myself and two or three others
went into tfco hall and fonnd ono man

went through considerable- smoke and
dust and i'a a room about 10 by 12 we
found a crib on which lay a man , his
hands v.nd feet nere tied whom wo
reacaea him. It was scenes like thb
tat wo encountered everywhere.
Groans , ahdekaand demoniac laughter
are ringing in my ears yet. "
This man's story ia but the reflex of
Tiundreds of others. The efforts to
remove patients , especially the violent
lent , were thwarted by mad obstinacy
and tbe lives lost were mainly due to
this. A few , in their removal suc
ceeded in escaping , carrying conster
nation to the people of the town but
most were safely housed in barns and
other vacant buildings. Of those
who escaped it ia believed , all have
been recaptured. Several were found
badly frozen , amputation of limbs
baing necessary in one or two cases.
who was literally roasted alive , fairly
illustrated the terror of the scene.
He occupied a room in the third story
of the wing where the fire started.
As the flames crept up to his living
grave , he stood peering through t he
bars of his window with the seeming
coolness and fortitude of a martyr.
Shafts of fire datted upward and .iL
most licked bis face. Still he waa un-
irapasjioned , merely dodging the
flames as they leaped toward him , as if

The total population of the asylum
was 583 , of whom 243 were male * ,
and 340 females. The portion of tbe
building destroyed was occupied ex
clurively by males , and the portion
saved included the domestic depart
ment , heating apparatus , etc. With
the excantion of a few patients , who
will be returned to their conoty poor
houses and ten who will be sent to
