Eighteen People  Perish
a  Fire   In   Philadelphia.
In
Men and  Women   Roasted
to Death In Sight ol
Spectators.
Philadelphia,    Oct.    85. -Eighteen
known (load and property loss amounting to upwards   to   8500,000   are   the
j��ful results of a  tire which occurred
today in the Business   portion   of   the
city.    The number of injured   is not
known definitely  bnt fully a score of
victims were treated at   the hospitals,
Tbe pollcu  and  firemen arc  tonight
delving into  the   ruins in search   of
bodies supposed   to have been buried
beneath the dobris,   aa   it   is  feared
thai other:, are still   there besides the
known dead. The buildings destroyed
were the eighth story structure,   1210
and  1221   Market street, occupied by
Hani, Wilkinson & Co.,   upholsterers
and    furniture   dealers,     and   three
throe slory   buildings    occupied     by
mmiU merchants.     The big   furmturn
building  extended back half a   block
toCommOrue street and was owned by
Uenry C. Lea.
Never  in   its history  has Pbiladel-
I pliin  experienced   a fire which spread
with suoh great rapidity.      At.   10.20
o'clock  this morning   the blaze broke
fotth  in   the   building   occupied   by
Hunt,   Wilkinson   &     Co.,   and   one
hour later the horrible sacrifice of life
bad been  made and the  immense loss
ofpioporty had   been   accomplished.
The origin   of the death dealing conflagration is unknown. . Such a disns-
Irmis liin attended with so great a loss
of life in snch   a   brief   period,   was
never before known in this city.    Men
and women died   a   lingering agonizing death in the presence of thousand.-,
of rpeetalors who were   unable to lift
a hand to their assistance.     The rear
of Hunt, Wilkinson &  Co.'s  building
faces on  Commercial street,   a   small
thoroughfare.   On the fire escapes   at
tbls end of the building two  men and
ouo  woman   were   slowly roasted   to
death  while    tho    horror    stricken
throng on the street below turned sick
tt the sight.     Iu   front,   on  Market
���treet, a woman diiven to desperation
leaped from a window in the top floor
and  was  dashed   to   death   on    the
pavement.
These are hot a few of the heartrending scenes attending the fire.
Firemen claimed to have seen men
and women, unable to reach the win-
I dows or fire escapes, burned to death
I m Ibe interior of the building. If
���s so, little or nothing remains
of the victims and it is doubtful if
��uy portion of their bodies will be
recovered.
Seventy-nine  of   100 persons in the
Hunt,   Wilkinson   &   Co.'s   building
when the fire   started were employees
"id   the   remainder   were   otstomers
and outside workmen   who   were   en-
K��gel in putting the finishing touohes
on tho now eighth   floor.     More than
n��il  of the Hun's employees were on
the upper five floors and it was among
these that the   greatest number   were
j killed and injmed.     Witb   the possible exception of the engineor  who  is
missing all persons on the first   three
I luoia got out safely.   Members of the
| Arm had their  offices  on   the  third
Huor and their  faimliarlty   with   the
I ��ils  is all  that   saved   them  from
I suffering death.     Mr. Wilkinson said
the smoke came np the  stairway   and
tuc   elevator    shaft   in   suoh   great
volume that he   and   Mr.   Hunt  had
much difficulty in reaching the street.
Most of those killed were at  work on
the sixth floor where the women were
������gaged in  aewing.     They   were  in
the rear of  the building close to the
��� anrt   became confused and rushed
��P through the building. ���  It waa re-
Ported that goods  were stored against
���  windows  wbioh   prevented    the
women    from   getting  to    the    fire
M����PeB and this was positively denied
the terrilrto leap to the sidewalk and
wore crushed, while ntbors ran the
J gauntlet of smoke am, Ueo down the
rear flre escapes. As If by oommon
impulse tho majority of employees
attempted to reach planes of safety by
means of lire escapes on the Commercial street side of the structure.
Many of them rondcred practically
insano by fright, leaped to tbe
ground and others becoming uneons-
cious from the smoke and intense heat
fell to thj pavement. When the firemen arrived Comuierical street was
filled with these unfortunate victims
and for the space of an hour the
police and hospital service waa taxed
to its utmost capacity. For an hour
the roaring flames threatened the
lives of every one who was compelled
to work fighting the fire,oi protecting
tbe surrounding properly, and every
minute of time threatened many other
thousands worth of property on all
sides of the tall buildings in which
the blaze started.
By noon the tire was undor control
and at lOo'clook tonight a force of
men, ordered by the department of
public safety, began the work of clearing away the debris for the purpose of
recovering the bodies of tho viotims
buried in the ruins.
Small buildings in the rear of the
furniture building and alio to the
west of the burned area were crushed
by falling walls. The fronts of
stores on the south side of Market
street, opposite tho fire, were all more
or less damaged by tho heat. The loss
tonight is estimated at half a million
dollais.

THE LABOR INJUNCTION.
What the Striking Miners at Rossland
Must Not Do.
At   Greenwood   on   Thursday     the
hearing of  the  injunction sought by
the I,(i Roi company of Rossland occupied the entire forenoon.    The injunction granted was as   follows:   "It  is
ordered that the defendants   (with the
exception of Roderick   Fraser, Angus
Macdonald,   E. C. Ruse, James Twaddle and W. O'Krien)   their  members,
servants,   agents and others acting by

London, Oct. 25 ���Andrew Carnegie
announced that he   will   preserve  an
absolutely   impartial   attitude   in regard   to   the   municipal   campaign in
New York, HAny other course, he believed, would be   improper in view of
his present and future   relations with
the municipal olliuials  ot   New   York
in connection with his   gifts   to  that
city.      Mr.   Carnegie   reiterated    his
disinclination to speak for publication
on   any    phase  of   the   election   and
vinccd   a   keen   desire   that no   one
should attempt to  quote   or   misquote
him regarding   that   fight.   However,
he frankly   depreciated  such "absurd
misrepresentations" of   the   condition
of Now York   city as appeared in   the
London Times this morning.    Dealing
with  the   Nicaragua   canal   question
Mr, Carnegie said   to a reprcseutati ve
of    the     Associated   Press,      "Great
Ilritain   has   acted   with good   sense.
The eanal should to be American built
with American workmen  and  American brain and now it will be.     There
is no doubt   but   that   Great   Britain
will   bo   tbe  greatest beneficiary and
will   have   no   reason   to repent   the
sensible course she adopted during the
recent negotitatonB,"   Questioned regarding   rumors of a possible English
steel tiust, Mr.   Carnegie   laughingly
���eraarked that   he   was   now   out  of
business and   did not   know   or  cate
anything more  about   it.   "With-the
exception of the Nicaragnan matter,"
he declared, "I  have  really   nothing
to   say.      I   expect    to   remain    iu
America until May 1.''

Was charged witb furious driving, tire
interest oi the   case   was  principally
in the point of how fait the horse involved could go.     The constable who
brought the charge was of the opinion
that the  Horse was going   more  than
the eight miles an   hour   allowed   by
the  statute,   while Mr. Johnson  who
was aoting for the defendant, put his
client    in   the    box    and  he  swore
that the horse was incapable of  doing
such   a thing,   and   that   instead  of
galloping it had   only   given   one or
two jumps before be could hold it in.
There was a good deal  of iirgiiiinr   as
to  how   it   was   possible   to tell the
sneed   ot   a horse in   running a short
distance without exactly timing him,
and   on   cross-examination   the   constable   admitted   that   ha   could   not
positively  swear   that the  horse bad
been going more  than eight miles on
the occasion referred to.   As anything
under that speed   was   allowable  the
charge was dismissed.
WRITES DOWN NEW YORK.
Times Correspondent Calls It a Mecca
of Criminals of All Grades.
London,   Oct ?��.���On the   authority
of tbe New York correspondent of the
London Times,   whose sentiment  has
been sent   broadoast  over   Europe,   a
reign   of   terror exists in New   York
oity.   It   is not exaggeration  to  say,
he   declares,   that   New York city  is
now   as   unsafe  as a mining town  a
generation ago.    One of the results of
the   political   importations  of tramps
and criminals has  been to   turn loose
In the city many of the   most dangerous   men   in   America.    Criminals of
every class from the petty thief to the
highwayman  are pressed into the service.    Part of the price   paid   them is
the promise of immunity from punishment.     As resulting therefrom an incredible   wave   of crime is  sweeping
over the city.    The shopkeepers arc in
_ state bordering on   panic.     Citizens
walk the secluded streets at   night  at
their own risk.    The more prosperous
shopkeepers   are   employing    private
watchmen,   so great is the distrust of
the police.

Edinburgh, Oct. 25.���Mr. Chamber
lain,   the Colonial secretary, addressing upwards of 8,000 people   in   Wav-
erly market, Edinburgh,    tonight announced that the government intended
to   frame  new   rules for tho Home of
Commons   so   as   to   limit   the   Irish
obstruction.      We propose, he said, to
bring forward rules which   shall give
to   the   majority   of     the    commons
greater control over its   own business
and greater control over the  men who
insnlt   and   outrage   it; and we shall
endeavor to protect the mother of parliaments from those who   would   destroy her  usefulness   and   reputation.
But  this was  not the only thing  the
government    intended     to     do,   Mr.
Chamberlain declared.      Tho   parliamentary representation of Ireland   is,
said he, an abuse and a scandal.     No
alteration can be made accept   in   immediate anticipation of a general dissolution and we are not OHitemplatlug
that.   But when we get nearer to  the
time, we shall.ask    you  whether you
think Irish representation is so precious   to   us   and so   valuable   to    tho
national interests, that it is desirable
to continue it on a scale  which  gives
the Irish a  representation enormously
oxceeding the. proportionate representation of Scotland and England.    The
colonial   secretary   went   on to point
out that on a basis of population   Ireland had So members too many in the
home of co .unions and on the   basis of
her contributions   for   imperial   purposes, as considered at the time of the
union she had from 40 to   50 members
too many.    I say that this constitutes
an   abuse,   he continued, and there is
no reason why it should   be   perpetuated.
In another portion of his speech
which was largely devoted to the Irish
question he observed: If the gentlemen who now openly shout for the
inadhi and pray for tbe Boers, if they
had a parliament of their own, if all
the strings of Irish government had
been in their hands, if they had had
that, Is it not certain that they would
have refused to pay their contribution
to the war and that they would have
pla.wd us in a position of embarrassment.
The relations of the parliamentary
opposition with the Irish party, Mr.
Chamberlain said, he considered
"dangerous to the empire."
In   reviewing   the   South     African
war, which   he   declared   again   bad
been   forced   upon   England   by    the
Boers,   he   said   the government acknowledged that it had made a mistake
as to the time   of ending   the war and
that be admitted   the   tenacity ot   the
Boors, but he insisted that it   was the
duty of Great   Britain   to   meet   this
tenacity with equal resolution.   Then
followed   what   is regarded as a most
Important   declaration.   I   think   the
time has come or is coming, said   the
colonial secretary, when  measures  of
greater severity may be necessary and
if that time comes  we  can  find   precedents   for   anything   wo  do in   the
actions  of   these   nations   who  now
criticise      our     "barbarity,"      and
"cruelty,"   but   whose    example   in
Poland, in the   Caucasus, in   Algeria,
in   Tonquin,   tn   Bosnia,    and     the
Franco-German   war  we   have  never
approached.

Gladstone, Oct. 25.���Steve J. Braillo

O'Re.'l contributed an article in yesterday's issue of tbe Paris Figaro on
the Duke of Cornwall and York's
visit to Canada. He insists that
French Canadians although under
English rule for 150 years are still
deeply attached to Fiance. Inhabitants of Quebec do not trouble their
visitors about pontics but are peaceful laborious and economical, and
give no trouble to England, wbo,
O'Rell maintains, retained Canada
owing to the fact that the French
hated the Yankees more than tbey did
the British, actually refusing to join
Lafayette althongh Lafayette was
under the Impression they would rally
round his flag with enthusiasm. O'Rell
contends that England should maintain a conciliatory attitnde toward
French Canada.
Australia and New Zealand are
sending military contingents to the
King's corontation next year. It la
expected that Canada will also be
represented, men who have been in
service in South Afrioa getting tbe

Imperial government is anxious that
Hon. Mr. Borden shall have picked
men in the contingent from the

THE LEAD REFINERY.
these a-.atements are pnt forward ti
cloak the real scheme which is for thi
smelting trust and its side paitner tbe
lead trust to seacre a foutnojd in
Canada, wnere they would manipaiale
matters as they have in tbe Umteo
States, principally for their own
advantage, and in that pnblic-be-
blowed spirit which is njarifested
occasionally by tbe big combinations
of capital in the United States.
If there is anv basis for the appre-
bentione above mentioned it is hign
time SB" thoev who have in hand the
project of erecting and maintaining a
lead refinery in tnis section to be up
and doing. Before tbey realize it
the i.-finery at Marysville will be in
operation and thus wiii secure tbe
cream of tbe business. This woolc
net be conducive to tbe success of the
West Kootenay enterprise. Prompt
action is necessary.

Miss Annie Edtcn Tayior. a woman
50 years cf age, who caght to have
knoarn better, went over Niagara
Falls on Thursday and is alive Bad
able to tell how it feels to drop 15S
feet and to be carried thtcragb tbe
wild swirl of waters at the
foot of tbe fa!ls. It was a wonderfully foolish feat and aeeoasplisiecl in
the hope of gaining a little notoriety
of tbe aird which was enjoyed by
Steve Brcdie after he -uraped from
t_ie Brooklyn bridge and by Elorjclic
after be crossed ov��r on a rasa suspended below tie brick ct Siarari

There is a shrewd suspicion in
<��� izc quarter* that there is more in
the plan for tbe erection of a silver-
lead smelter and a lead refinery at
Marysviile is East Kootenay than appears on tbe surface. Soaoe think
that they can discern tbe flee Italian
hand of the American Snelticg trust
and declare that the moving spirit in
the enterprise ia tbat big monopoly
and not the Saliivah Uroap Mining j
company. Circumstantial evidence is
brought forward in support cf this:
theory. Id the first place. Senator
Gaaaaja Turner, wbo is tbe "leading
spirit id the Sullivan Mining company, is a maD who has mach mere
than orciaary ability, and by aaay
he ia considered the biggest man in
trie State of Washington. Besides
being an abie contaituttoual lawyer, a
leading politician, be finds time to
engage in mining enterprises on
large scale.      His connection with the)0'

terday, few passing it without stopping to inspect it. By a skillful and
artistic arrangement of dress fabrics
and their garnishings the window
was converted into a veritable bower
of beauty. The back ground was
most effectively and picturesquely
arranged while the many tinted
olntliH of the rare texture and beautiful color wtre placed in positions
which showed them to the best advantage. The effect was heightened by
placing here and there stands of pottery. The blending and grouping
were really artistic and the effect of
the whole was creditable to the big
store which made it. The display, in
a measure reveals that tho Hudson's
Bay company store carries a large and
elegant stock of dress goods and trimmings and that the customer who
could not secure what he desired from
the shelves in this store could not be
suited even if she visited some of the
big stores in the larger eastern cities.

Passengers who came in from Rob
son yesterday forenoon had a big pro
test to file when they reached thl
Oity and some of them came to Tho
Miner office and protested vigorously.
They alleged that they had been
transported on the "hog train" from
Robson to Nelaon and they did not
cnji.y the trip a little bit. When they
had calmed oown they allegea that
cars loaded with hogs had been put in
front of the passenger ooaohes and
when the tiain started and the darft
was backward it brought with it an
odor that was as strong as Sandow or
John L. Sullivan. It was as agges-
nlve as conld be and could not be Bhut
out. It was declared that it made
the lady passengers sick and most of
the men tried to mitigate the evil by
smoking, but, oh I how vigorous it
was, declared the disgruntled' passengers. All were HI a hurry to leave the
"hog train" when it arrived at the
depot.
Yesterday evening about six o'olook
a telephone message came to police
headquarters from Mrs. Hutton, at
the corner of Lake and Cedar street,
mating that she had found a l'tle to
who had not the remotest idea of
where its homo or parents were.
Within a few minutes a second call
came from a nother part of the oity
saying that a child answering to the
description of the one that bad beta
found had wandered away from its
home that afternoon and oould not be
found anywheie. The good news of
its whereabouts was communicated to
the anxous parents, who found that
the youngster had ttaversed a great
deal more of tho city than thev
thought could be possible, considering
its uge.
A meeting was held yesterday afternoon in tho Baptist church at which
preliminary steps wero taken towuid

ROSY COLOR
Produced by Postum Food Coffee-
"When a person rises from each
mesl with u ringing in the ears and a
general sense of nervousness, it is 1
common habit to ohsrge it to a de
ranged stomach.
I found it was caused from drinking coffee, which I never suspected
for a long time, but found by leaving
off coffee that the disagreeable feel
inga went away.
I was brought to think of the sub-
ject by getting some Poatum Food
1 ..IT.-,. aod this bruught me uut of
trout Is.
It ia a meat appetizing and Invig
orating beverage and has been of such
great benefit to me that I naturally
speak of it from time to time aa op
portunity offers.
A lady friend complained to roe that
she hart-tried Postum, but it did not
taste good. In reply to my question
ahe said she guessed abe boiled it
about ten minutes. I advised her to
follow directions and know that she
boiled it fifteen or twenty minutes
and she would have, something worth
talking about. A short time ago I
heard one of her children say that
they were drinking Pnstnm nowadays,
so I judge she succeeded in making ii
good, wbicb is by no means a difficult
task.
Tom O'Brien, the son of a friend
who lives on Bridge street, was formerly a pale lad,hut since he has has
been drinking Postum, has a fine
color. There ia plenty of evidence
that Postum actually does 'make red
blood,' aa the famous trade mark
Bars." .in. Chambers, f> Franklin
street, Dayton, Ohio.
Tbs hoys1 brigade of the Corgrega-
tlonal church held Its regular meeting
last evening. The boys are attending
well, and Corporal Blaney, of the B.
M. B, who is acting as drill instructor, is Dringing them on very credit-
aDly.
At the meeting of the Socialistic
Educational club, the proposed bargain between the city council and the
West Kootenay Power Co., will come
up for discussion. The meeting will
be held in the Miners' Union hall on
Sunday afternoon, and will commence
at 3 3) o'clock.
E. J. Coyle, diatrict agent the C. P.
R., at VancouTer, and Geo. Ham,
manager of advertising for tbe C. P.
11.. at Montreal, are in the Boundary
and will be in Nelson today. From
here they will join tbe party of Mr.
Tait and Mr. Marpoie who are ex-
peeled in today.
If you are a stranger in the city or
bare not yet found for yourself a
church home, drop into the Baptist
church tomororw morning and you
will find a cordial welcome awaiting
yon. Services both morning and
evening conducted by the pastor.
Subjects will be announced in tomorrow's Miner.
Since the posting of notices on tbe
gates of the recreation grounds ordering tbat tho same shall be kept open,
a public thoroughfare running
through tbe centre considerable traffic
occurs through tbe grounds, as it
makes a short cut to tbe wharf from
parts of Cedar and East Vernon
streets. Some steps leading up to tbe
grade of the sidewalk on Hall street
onld considerably add to its usefulness.
At St. Paul's Presbyterian church
tomorrow at the morning services Mr.
Brown will sing a solo entitled He
Givetb Bis Beloved Sleep, by Abt. In
the evening Dr. Wright will preach a
sermon to young women, Mrs. Melville Parry will sing The Children's

posed of Mrs. Parry, Miss Johnson,
Mr. Grizzelle and Mr. Kydd.
A quiet weeding took place in the
parlors of the Royal hotel yesterday
afternoon at 2.30 o'clock. Charles
William Paul Hauck, cf Slocan City,
and Miss Mitda Zimmerman, of
Schneeberg, Saxony, Germany, were
the happy couple and the ceremony
was performed by John Burtt Morgan
of tbe Baptist church in the presence
of a few friends. The bride, who
arrived in the city on Thursday afternoon from her home in Germany
whence she had come to meet the man
of her choice, looked none tbe less
fresh and charming for her long and
tiresome journey. She was becomingly attired and carried a beautiful
bouquet of flowers After spending a
abort time in this city Mr. and Mrs.
Hauck will take up their residence in
Slocan City, where the groom's many
friends are preparing for them a cordial reception.
Express and dray teams were yesterday using the driveway through the
Nelson Samill company's yards to get
to the city wharf. At the sawmill
office it is stated that those using
that driveway are liable to prosecution for trespass as the road is a
private one. Mayor Fletcher stated
that he bad been out of the city when
the teams were first prevented from
going through the mill yards, but he
understood that the city engineer was
looking after the matter. Aa to the
Nelson Sawmill company's not getting
patronage from the city there bad
been nc discrimination against it.
its tender had always been higher
than that of others. The sawmill
people say they have seen nothing uf
the city engineer or any one else
connected with tbe city to ask permission to uso tbeir driveway. Yesterday the foot passengers made their
perilous way along stringers set on
edge and loose planks to do which
was considerable strain on tbe
nerves of some. On Thursday there
waa a diversion from tho usual course
of events when a number of the teamsters went out on tbe wharf but on
their return found the way blocked by
what was going on in the mill yards,
and they were kept waiting almost an
houi till a   passage could be efT>cted.
