In a short interview recently with Mr

representative in tins county , he wa.
lieard to remark that , as cclf preserva
tion was the lirsi law of nature , he had

of the ticket , especially Church llowe
and his prohibition plank , and protect

The idea of Mr. Moore making temper

the liberal league in Lincoln that he is
against the Mibmi.s'-ion question , if
dividing himself into rather too manj
parts. He will find in November that he
will need Ins whole person intact l < :
carry as many isms as lie is now trying
to do. The campaign is waxing warmei
and warmer , and the republican nominees
noes throughout the district are gradu
ally finding that while Church Howe
forced his nomination , no scheme car
be worked lo force his election at the
ballot box. Hence they are gradually
unloading him , and refuse to accede tc

The speech of Congressman Laird lien
demonstrated the fact that the neoph

Howe campaign , as not a rousing clicoi
was given except at the mention of tin
uamc of James G. lilainc , when Ihi
rounds of applause went up as if givet
by a trained chorus. Mr. Laird in con
eluding said he did not believe he couli
do any more good to the people , and no

"Can it bo true that Mr. Howe tried ti

ON THE NIGIiniF THE FIRE ,
A Reminiecsnca of the Great Chicago
CRIMES WIPED OUT BY FLAMES.
ntn Very Inconvenient Time

Alley niul Shooting Hint A
l'erliap you'd like to hear a story of
the great Chicago lire that has never been
The ( , 'hicago Herald reporter whoelcil
his chair around nearer the grate where
apiece of coal was blazing pleasantly and
expressed n willingness to HMen.
" \\ell , " continued the old man , "I'll
reel it on" . It's n good while since then
and no harm will be done. 1 came into
possession of the facts some time ago
and they're straight. A few days before
tin- fire a young man who was employed
in n wholesale house of that day was
found to be an cmbu//.ler. His employ
ers were at work on the ease when the
lire came and swept everything away.
Up to that time they had not fully decid
ed what course they would pursue ,
The cashier , whom I will call Everett ,
was an agreeable fellow. Ho had wealthy
relatives here and in New York , anil his
wife was one of the handsomest women
1 ever saw. In tact , it was supposed that
it was on nor account that Jiverett had
pot into trouble. She was fond of dress
and it was no secret that her desire to
shine in society had led him into expen
ditures that were beyond his means. The
possibility that the defaulter's relatives
would help him and the honest desire of
one of his employers to MIVO him from
dtagra'iu both contributed to the delay
which oecured in his prosecution.
"On the Saturday night before the big
lire a long consultation was held at the
store between the defaulter , ono or two
of his triunds and two of the partners.
At this conference no arrangement was
reached and there was an intimation that
if something was not done by Everett's
friends by Monday morning the law-
would have to lake its course , it was
late when the meeting broke up and the
heavens worn bright with the reduction
from the first fire when the men came
out on the street. Everett did not go
home directly , lie first crossed thu
river , took a look at the fire a few min
utes and then proceeded to the resilience
of a friend in the neighborhood of Center
avenue. When he recrossed the river
and pursued his way toward his own
home on the north side it was long past
"That Sunday he remained at home
for the greater part of the day , but
toward evening he again proceeded to
the West Side , nad a Jong consultation
with his friend and at 10 o'clock started
for home. A new lire had broken out ,
and as lie reached the river he could sec
from the bridge at Madison street that it
was as threatening a conflagration as the
ono that had preceded it. Perplexed
over his own great trouble and believing
that nothing could now save him from
disgrace and pnnishment.Kverett walked
leisurely toward the burning district , and
when near enough to observe the oiicra-
tions of the firemen , paused and took a
survey of tlie surroundings. It was evi
dent that the fire was already beyond
control. Great arms of ilame were
reaching out toward the north , and the
spectator could see the path of destruc
tion widening every minute. When the
firemen had been beaten back repeatedly ,
and at length compelled to abandon
their position altogether , Everett saw the
lire leap the river , and , recognizing the
fact that the brigade was now helplesshe
saw with keen perception the fate which
awaited the city.
"Absorbed as lie had been in contem
plating the horrible scene before him ,
Everett had not lost sight of the doom
which was hanging over him. Clutching
at straws like a drowning man the
thought occurred to him that if the city
was to bo destroyed there might in the
confusion be a chance of escane for him.
In the tremendous wreck and ruin of
that night and the day which was to fol
low what would one more or loss human
wreck amount to ? If Chicago was to go
down in a whirlwind of Ihuiie , wiping
out fortunes , records , landmarks , Busi
ness , and probably many individuals ,
could there not be some escape for him ?
Killed with these rellcctions , but hardly
knowing what to do or how his deliver
ance was to come , ho almost ran to the
Soutli Division , hastened through its al
ready smoking streets , and , joining the
mad throng of terror-stiicken people ,
pushed rapidly on toward his homo on
North Dearborn street. There , at least ,
ho could gain a few minutes for reflection
"There were lights in many houses , but
in his own all was dark. Some people
were already moving their valuables U5

could hardly hold the key ho opened the
front door and entered. A lamp burning
low stood on the back parlor table , bul
no ouu appeared , and when ho called oul
there was no answer. Bounding up the
stairs he quickly searched every room ir
vain , and then , returning to the lowci
lloor , he saw on the table , for the lirs
time , a note from his wife , in which sh (
informed him that she had left him , ant
that it would do him no good to snarcl
for her. It was dated at" 0 p. m. , am
must have been written soon after hi ;
departure in the evening ,
"For a moment the man was dazee
and ho sat clutching the paper , unmind
ful of the red glare that was now brightening
toning everything in the room and evei
illuminating his sorrow-burdened face
Ho had thought of escape , of a rnsq o

which overshadowed him. Then eanv

His wife , driven from her refuse , and in
the company , evidently , of the inan who
had always exercised an evil intlucnci'
over her ! had returned , perhaps in the
in the hope that her huhband had not yet
received the mite and with the expecta
tion of postponing her llight to another
"It wa < while Everett was li.-tcuing in
this attitude and with these' thoughts
courting through his mind that he heard
the woman say that the note was gone ;
heard Sailer , the junior member of the
firm to which he was a delinquent , laugh
Miceringly and say something intended
to be humorous ; heard both coiii-nlt as to
the advisability of remaining there tem
porarily , and heard his own wife suggest
that it would be well first to search the
house. The revolver was still in his
hand , held by a grip that was as haul
and cold as the steel itself. The old feel
ing came back to him. Hero \yas an op
portunity to add fresh horror to the
dreadful drama which was being cnaclod
all around him. Three pulls at the
weapon which he held in his hand , and
the uillows of the lire fast rolling on
would in an hour at most wipe out the
sin , the shame and the sorrow forever.
"At that instant Sailer , followed by the
woman , began the ascent of the stair. > .
The long suspense hwl told on Kvcrett ,
and in his ncrVousness , when lie came lo
raise himself' in ' order to fahoot in his
tracks the man wno with a light and
jaunty air waa telling another man's wife
what'hc would dOjWith her husband if he
caught him , he made a noise which was
fatal to his plans , In a flush Salter had
drawn his pistol and fired. Everett's
weapon going ofl'but once , and that so
wide of the mark that no damage was
done. Two , three' ' and four times Salter
fired at the 'dark figure which in the
glare he conld . faintly distinguish in
the upper hall , and as no response
eaiue he and the woman hastily descended
scended to the parlor to make ready for
flight. Mrs. 1'verptt was in hysterics and
would not leave the place until bcr com
panion made an "investigation for the
purpose of determining tne identity of
his victim and making sure that he was
dead. The ( lames were now rolling all
around them , and it was evident that not
many minutes would elapse before the
block in which the housa stood would be
in ruins. With desperation marked on
every feature Sailer examined his
weapon and slowly began the ascent of
the stairs. Agitated as he. was , lie realized
that if the work had not been finished it
must bo done , and , after reaching the
body of his victim , he first
made sure that it was that of Ev
erett. JMo sign of life was visible. The
man did not breathe. His flesh was al
ready clammy. Ho must be dead , the
murderer thought , but to make doubly
sure he closed his eyes and lirod once
moro into the recumbent form. Only the
echo of the report and shriek of the
woman below greeted his ears , and as ho
dashed down the stairs both saw through
the half shaded parlor window a great
sheet of llanie burst from the row of
buildings that stood across the street. No
time was to be lost. Hastily assuring
his companion that ho had made no mis
take in his man , Saltcr seized her by the
arm and led her out.
"The street was then * - " , . .

,1 . CP. An occasional wagon
, .ieu madly by , and ono or two fugi
tives were to bo seen making such haste
as thov could toward the north , but the
multitude had already gone. Once in
the open air. stilling though it was , the
woman seemed 19 gain fresh life , and
under the reassuring words of her escort
came at length to believe that the tragedy
of which she had been a witness woulii
never be known. As they were about to
turn off towsrd the lake they stopped for
a irdnuto and looked back. The street
was now a mass of flame , and from the
windows of the house which had so re
cently been hers she could see the red
tongues darting gleefully. In thai fear
ful furnace they could res.t assured that
every vestige of their crime would dis
"Where they went , nobody knows.
The woman is still living , though not in
Chicago. She loft the city a few days
after the fire , but Salter was" not in her
company. She has never told whore she
left him , and , as a matter of fact , has al
ways denied that she was with him on
that night , 1 happen to know , however ,
what became of , him. In their flight
toward the l kq , their footsteps were
dogged by a man. Pursuit under such
circumstances was not the easiest thing
in the world. < The streets were as light
as day , nnd'Jofcibpl , m the 11 urn o and
smoke objectsvvero visible at great dis
tances. Twoor.tbreo times the figure
which was darting here and there
through the streetsand , alloys came out
at sharp coriieri' expecting to head
them off , but cacli'time without success ,
At length ho was successful. By making
a shortcut he > YIV ) able to put himself in
a position whqro could see the pair com
ing. In his hiiDiUwas a knife that had
seen service in.a liitchen. As the fugitives
rushed along \boyiimid \ little attention to
things aroundoiJiRiu. Passing an alley
in which the shadows were yet dark they
looked noilhnrto die left nor to the right ,
There was a footstep timed with their
own , a gloaming piece of steel on which
the red light of the conflagration was
reflected , and a thrust in the back which
called ono scoundrel to his final account.
With a shriek of horror the woman lied ,
and was soon lost sight of in the crowd
which thronged the park. The dark
figure disappeared in another direction ,
and the waves of fire rolled on.
"That was fifteen years ago nextSatur-
day night. Tim man with thu knife was
Kvcrett , as I hapitnn to know from hi :
own lips. Ho had been stunned by a
wound that ho had received in the first
discharge , and the shot which Saltcr hail
fired at him later on was what saved his
life. It struck him in the shonlder and
brought him to his senses. Though weak
and suffering , ho resolved on immediate
pursuit , andT in his canfusioh , not boihg
able to find his revolver , he proceeded to
the kitchen and , taking the bread
knife , found an exit at the rear
door and was soon on tlie trail
of the fugitives. Everett had his
wounds dre.ed the next day , and as soon
as it was possible he went north , whom
he remained until ho was fully restored
to health. Sailer's body was lound and
hir death was set down as tlie result of
asphyxiation. The lire had passed ovrr
him and his remains were hardly recog-
ni/.able. Nobody then suspected how he
came lo fall where he did , and you may
be very sure lh.it the only pers-ons who
knew were not very anxious to tell about
it. Everett was never prosecuted for his
embe/.zlement , and ns he died a couple
of years ago I don't see any lir.rm in giv
ing jou the story. "
