PAIIIS , May 2. ) . The Opera Cerniln.no took
lire this evening. The whole building Is now
wrapped In ( lames. Fourteen person who
jumped from tlio windows are dead and
forty-three Injured. Probably many were
crushed to death In the galleries. At present
this Is uncertain.
Fire broke out during the first act of the
opera "Mlgnon. " Ono ot the wings caught
lire from a gas-jet. The entire stage was Im
mediately enveloped in flames. The lire
soon spread to the whole house. Mine.
Mergvllllor and Mm. Tasqulm and Bernard
were on thtrstaio when the lire broke out.
All thu actors ran out In their stage cos
tumes. Tlio audience got out easily ,
but the gas was turned off before all had left
the building auet it is feared that some were
left in the upper tiers. Thu roof soon fell
in , sending a shower of sparks as far as the
place do la Bourse. With the exception of
Madame Sellier , who perished , all the actors
escaped , though a number were seriously In-
Jiiied. Flvo bodies , terribly burnt ,
were conveyed to the national library.
The military club rendered great assistance
In the work of resisting tlio crowding of the
people toward the building. Nineteen per
sons are known to bo dead.
Many there supposed It was an artificial
fire. The apparatus which had been placed
In position In readiness for the burning of
the palace In the second act rolled down from
Us place near the roof and oxuloded
below. Women half clad , carrying costumes ,
lied from the stage screaming. The flames
spread with such rapidity that In fifteen
minutes the stage was a vast furnace. Sev
eral actors escaped by climbing to the roof on
the side of the Uuo Marlvanta , where they
were rescued by lire escapes.
M. Tasquln Implored tlio audience to re
main seated until the exits were opened ,
which they did. If they had made a
rush for the doors the loss ot life
would have been terrible. The police
outside wore unable to restrain the
crowd who besieged the building , inquiring
for friends until a military cordon was
The scene outside was ono of the wildest
excitement. The flames shot out of every
window , driving the crowd into the narrow
streets , where the crush was terrific.
Figurante says there were 153 persons on
thu stage when the lire broke out. She heard
glass breaking , but told the others not to
mind It. But whlhi she was speaking a
column of lla'inB broke through the wings
with a roar and all rushed pell mell from the
Many policemen wore Injured. It Is still
unknown how many persons wore unable to
escape from the doomed building. Only n
fortnight ago M. Stlmakurs called attention

The audience was delayed a few minutes
by a dense smoke and uisufllolunt light. Di

rusli In the theater , yet it Is believed
Uio staircase became blocked. The
Iron curtain was lowered In the front stage.
Tills prevented the lire spreading Immedi
ately to the auditorium and allowed the audi
ence time to escape. Most of the casualties
BO for reported are due to nervousness. Many
persons who wore unable to trust themselves

building jumped oft In terror. The victims

ipon the governor In relation to his position In
appointing the tire and i-olico commission of

ditors who are waging such a bitter warfare
upon Governor Thaj or.
"Governor , said your correspondent , "I
co that the Republican Is accusing you of

" \V hat was the original request ? "
"Tho original request , " said the governor ,

secresy in this matter even if there had
been , such brutal assaults made upon me.
would certainly have released uio from all
such obligations to guerrillas. "
"Did Morrisscy , Mr. McShano's editor ,
ever ask you to appoint him on the commis
sion ? "
"Mr. Morrlsey did not apply to me to bo
appointed ono of the police commissioners , "
said the governor , "but ho did ask mo
irgentlv , at Lincoln , about the time of the
close of the legislature , to appoint a relative
of his , by the name of Manor , ono ot the
> ollce commissioners. 1 enquired of per-
laps a dozen democrats , If they know biich a

Morrlsey ) my reasons , in Omaha , for ete-
'llnlng to appoint his relative , or rather

when ho was very pleasant , he stated that it
was the original intention that ho
; Morrisey ) and Uothacker should bo on the
wlico commission. How they were
0 get there , ho did not state , but
L presume they calculated on using
the governor for that purpose. Mor-
risoy said , however , that they abandoned that
iclieme , anel ho ( Morrisey ) then concluded to
iring forward his relative , this man Maher ,
Tor commissioner. Then it was , I suppose ,
that Kothacker determined to apply for the
place , and ho sought It urgently and persist
ently , llo claimed that the Republican was
entitled to recognition In the commission. "
"Why was It that you did not treat the
candidacy of these two editors with that sol
emn consideration to which they s''oui to
think they are entitled ? "
"I discovered a scheme to capture the com
mission by these rowdy editors , select their
chief of police , control the police torce and
run things generally according to their own
notions of things. I frustrated their wicked
schemes , and hence they howl like little span
iels , thoroughly whipped. They remind me
of a boy who , when he got thoroughly licked
by another boy , said : 'Well , if I can't lick
you , lean go Into the woods and howl and
make taccs at you. ' Blackguards can cry
'old fossil' and 'old granny. '

ernor , "the condition of Omaha as to its po
lice arrangements would have been onn hun

saved Omaha tiom thlselbgraco and disaster.
1 have broken up their nctarlous schemes ,
and hence their rage Is unbounded , but they
'gnaw a tile. ' They are only exposing their
own Infamy. "
"Diel Kothacker urjo you to recommend
Moynlham as chief of police , after you had
refused to make Kothacker a member of the
commission ? "
"Yes ; after the tirst abusive attack upon
mo and upon my letter to the commissioners ,
this man Kothacker had the eTroutcry ( to call
upon mo at tlio Millard hotel. We were
standing by thn oftice of the hotel. Messrs.
Council anel Beckcl were present. Kothackei
asked mo If 1 was acquainted with Captain
Moynlhan. Upon my reply iu the negative ,
he said ho would bring him up and introduce
me , as Moynlhan was sitting iu the rear part
of the rotunda , and ho did so. It was then
said that my request to the commissioner !
would have great weight with them In favoi
of their appointment of Movnlhan as chief ol
police. That evidently was all prearranged ,
Moj nllian was to be there within calling , sei
us to make him acquainted witli me. Koth-
acker had thus planned to Induce mo to In
terfere in Moynlhan's behalf after ho had
publicly chargoii mo with interfeilng with
matters that did not concern me. Ho extolled
the virtues of Moynlhan to me. "
"Did Morrlssov give any reason why he
wanted toseo his relative on the commissioner
or Movnlhan appointed as chief ?
"In an Interview with Morrlssoy when he
was very clover , he said , that their objccl
was to break down the influence of Ke > se-
water and the BHK. Stating that some time
ago , Mavor Boyd had made out an appoint
nientot Moynlhan as cltv marshal , but thai
the BEE had prevented the carrying of tin
appointment Into effect ; and that they mean !
to prevent the BIE : having any Influence wltl

used , but I give you the precise meaning
Ho ( Morrlssey ) said that Fiugerald was tin

Ilondholdera After Him For
NEW YOIIK , May 25. The Commercial Ad-
crtlser says a lawsuit , Involving several mil-
Ion dollars , Is about to bo begun against Jay
Uould and Kusscll Sago as trustees of a con-
oltdatcd mortgage on the Kansas Paclttc
allroad by foreign holders ot tlio bonds Is-
ued under the mortgage. Certain facts wore
illclted during the recent examination into
lie affairs of the Pac.ltlc roads by the United
States railroad commission which have long
been suspected by Interested parties but
which they were unable to prove. Now the
cry matters they were In the dark about are
nado clear to them and the suit so long held
n abeyance will bo the result. It Is stated
hat In 1H7U , when the plan to consolidate the
Kansas Pacilic and Union Pacific roads was
about to bo carried Into effect , Sydney Dillon
by arrangement , had an attorney bring
action against Gould and Sago as trustees ot
the great Kansas Paclllc blanket mortgage to
release 30uoo shares of the Denver Pacilic
stock from the lien ot mortgage. This stock
was worth S100 per share par , but at this time
was of no great market value. In thl ,
unique case , In place of ordinary legal dolavs
answer was served on the following day and
an application to Judge Donahue tor the ap
pointment of II. II. KugKlcs as referee , and
within the next two or three days a so-called
.rial was had before thoreferec , during which
Dillon testified that the Denver Paclic stock
was worth about two hundred or three him-
Ired thousand dollars , though Its face value
was 53,000,000. The report made was con-
irnicd and judgment entered. The S3.000-
000 worth of stock was released from thu Hen
of the mortgage and transferred to Gould
nnd Sago as Individuals. The whole suit In
volving so largo a sum of money was con
ceived , commenced and ended , Inslue of one
week. On the same day , or a day after , the
stock was transferred , consideration was
consummated , and shortly after the Denver
I'acllic stock became worth Its face value.
Had It remained under the lien of the consul-
dated mortgage each bond would have been
worth Its pro-rata share of 83,000,000 more
hail It Is to-day. This , with Interest , would
MJ about ? 5,000.000. It Is to secure a proportionate
tionate shaio of this that the foreign bond-
lolders propose to bring their suit claiming
wrongful deprivation and that a court of jus
tice was improperly used to give color ot le
gality to the robbery. The case bids fair to
> e ono of the great law suits of the day.

ported by the Canadian correspondent of thu
World as saying that the dominion Is
anxious for as widiS au extradition treaty
with tlio United States as possible. Ameri
can criminals are not wanted , and Sir John
favors the draft of 'the treaty submitted by
England , which contains a great extension
of the present treaty. It appears , however ,
that the chief dinicultv In arranging the
treaty , arises from the refusal of the United
States to agree to the provisions for the sur
render of the dynamiters.

to thn BKK.I T hero was a great deal of un
favorable comment to-day over the action ot
the Memphis Meichant Xouaves and the
Vlcksburg Southrons in spoiling the street
parade. These companies entered for the
drill and knew that there would be colored
troops iu the contest for prl/.es as well as in
the parades. Consequently there was no ex
cuse for them wlthdr.iwlng trom the proces
sion , but they did so , all because a company
of colored mon had been placed In the line
ahead of them. Unfortunately there Is no
authority to compel the troops to obey the
orders of ihocoiumandantotthocamp , as their
military allegiance Is due only to the govern
ors of their respective states , and while In
these states. There Is ono thing the com
mittee can do , however , they can declare
that by falling to obey orders these companies
have forfeltcted all right to prizes. They
certainly should not bo permitted to carry otf
the honors If they are unwilling to obey
commands , as obedience Is the first duty of
every soldier. The captain of the Vlcksburg
company otters this very lame excuse for his
action. Ho said : "Ills all on account of
the company of 'niggers' which marched
't front of us. When the question was raised
, s to allowing colored companies iu tlio drill ,
. wrote to Secretary DoLcon and asked him
.f we were expected to parade , or do guard
duty , or associate In any way with these wo
oiisitlered to be below us in the social scale.
_ ilr. DoLeon wrote back that we would not bo
associated in any way with the colored troops ,
iiiul It was on this assurance that we came to
the drill. Before wo lett home the people re-
ulnded us we were Sonthein gentlemen and
opresented the city of Vicksburg before the
United States , and of course wo must not let
ourselves be placed on an equality with the
negroes. Yesterday a colored company
drilled before us. We did not mind that , but
when it came to placing this organization of
colored people right heloro us in parade , then
\\o \ objected. Wo spoke to Major Shcllicld ,
commanding our division , about it , and ho
ivent to General Augur , bin as nothing was
: lone about It , wo decided to dropout and the
Memphis Zouaves followed us. Wo could
not lot tno president ol the United States sco

corroborated Captain Soarles. The objec-
lonable colored company is the Washington

Ldvn Stook Association On

ST. Louis , May 25. [ Special Telgram to
the BKI : . ! A local paper ulves an account
if a gigantic scheme to consolidate all the
attic Interests ot the Northwest and form a
iompaiiy which shall control Sl.r ,000,000
vorth of cattle and gra/.iug land. It seems
o have originated with the Wyoming Stock
association ot Cheyenne , and Is an outgrowth
of a combination of smaller cattlemen Into
companies , which has been going on for sev
eral years. This scheme has been formed for
organizing the largest cattle company over
known , controlling hundreds of thousands
) t cattle and ranges larger than many states.
The failure of the Swan Bros , brought mat
ers to a focus rather unexpectedly. The
) lan Is to unite Wyoming , Colorado , Eastern
Jtah , Western Nebraska , Southern Mon
tana aud Southern Dakota Into ono
; lgantc ! company , each absolutely surrend
ering his individual held and ranch and re
ceiving a proportionate amount of stock in
return. A nimilar association lias been re
cently formed in Texas , but ono of far loss
xtnnt nnil not so complete In its
WrtMWl1 'NVUBTWfllBf-- 61"-'throw
ing upon the market A large amount
of stock at an unfavorable time will
ilius be entirely obviated and such disasters ,
is followed the Indian territory sales , ren-
lered Impossible. Periodical depressions
necessitating weaker ranchmen to sell un-
matiirod stock at ruinous prices have been
disastrous at times , and this condition will ,
In n great measure. If not entirely , relieve
this fear. The disastrous consequences of
the Swan failure compelled cattlemen to
take Immediate action , and delegates
were sent to Now York , London and Edin
burgh to impiess upon the capitalists of these
cities , ( who agieed to no Into the enterprise )
the neceslty of Immediate action , which they
have done with great activity. There are
connected with the enterprise Sturgis , Lane ,
Can1 , Davis , llilfo and Clark , of Cheyenne ,
and Ulrlchs and Havemeyer ot Now York , to
gether with numbers of Scotch and English
capitalists and some trom Boston and Phila
delphia. These gentlemen already control
fully half of the stock In Wyoming and have
the support of nearly all the rest of that ter
ritory. Cattle will bo apportioned to langes ,
water supply fairly divided and the pioduc-
tivo region largely increased.
