Of THE COLLAPSE Indignation Kxproaned by the Oerku They Hold the Official Keionnl!)le fur the Awful Affair. Associated Press. . wasnington, June 10. The sad re sult of the downfall of. the old Ford's Theater furnished the principal topic of conversation all day. The opinion Is unanimous that there la blame some where for the shocking fatality, and many men echoed the words of Dr. l Cartlett, that the accident was not one the responsibility for which could be laid upon God. The more the matter is discussed and the farther along the work of clearing awy the debris pro gresses, the more evident this becomes, This morning the uninjured clerks In tha doomed building were about the scene of the disaster discussing the sit uatlon, and holding little indignation meetings It is evident the feeling is very strong among them, and many are loud in expressions of condemnar tiiorr for the officials of the government Who herded them together In such a lHullding. Colonel Sifqvvart, superin tendent of construction of the new city post office, seemed to think as others do, that the whole trouble came from the weakening of the structure caused by the excavations In the front part of the building. There is no decrease In the general feeling of indignation, that fills the city over the awful disaster. There was much comment over .the fact that noVa flag on any of the-public build ings was half-masted- today. Secretary of War Lamont arrived here this afternoon, and had a confer ence, wltfi Acting Secretory Grant and C.olonel Ainsworth, with regard to the future action of tha department con. cerndng the calamity. The records of the war department show that the collapsed . theater building was for years known officially, to be unfit for human occupation by reason, not only of tha structural weakness but also because of its defective sanitary condi tlon. The frightful accident calls to the attention of the officials the con. dltion of other, public buildings which are said to be more or less unsafe. The building occupied by the war depart ment and the second auditor of the treasury Is frequently criticized, and clerks who work there assert It la none too safe. The Busch building,' which forms "an annex of tha postofflce de partment, is another of these struct ures about which clings an unsavory reputation, for safety and substantial ity. The patent office, a massive stone structure, Is exempt from general crit icism. The building; in which the of fice of the sixth auditor of the treasury department 1b located, though new, is so heavily weighted with public docu ments and other material that the floors have sunk from two to three Inches already, and the clerks are In constant fear. There is no more dan gerous trap In the) city than the patched-up government printing office, which has been from time to time strengthened by wooden and Iron sup ports. VICTIMS OP FRIDAY'S CALAMITY. Washington, Juna 10. The death list resulting from the Ford's theatre acci dent now stands at twenty-five. The stories of suffering and distress grow, lng out of ; tha ' calamity are heart rending. A coroner's Jury was Impan eled this morning and will begin the Inquest Monday. An Investigation will also be made by the war department, I. W. Boody, of New York, reported In the list of dead, escaped uninjured This makes the total number of deaths twenty-two. There Is also a doubt about the death of Jarvls, of Michigan. GERMAN POLITICS. Berlin, June 10. At the general elec tions for members of the reichstag on Thursday next, and the bye-elections sure ta be required, 397 members of the house, a full complement, will be re turned. The present week closed with 1,550 candidates In the field. Not only new aspirants for seats, but new po litical factions appear daily, and as the election dally draws gradually nearer, tHa confusion grows worse. Instead of eight recognized parties In the late reichstag holding the electoral field, jn the present campaign, there are about twenty secrlops, each fighting for Its own program. Among the latest devel opments In the political situation la a break-up among the anti-Semites. The Jew baiters consist of three distinct factions. The final result must de pend on political combinations. Every thing promises that the new reich stag will be the most motley parlia ment known to lildtorv.

(Correspondence of The Astorlan.) Chicago, Juno 6th. A consldernbl number of people have deferred visit lng Chicago on account of reported ex tortlonate charges for food and lodging, For tho Information of such persons I will state that comfortable rooms at convenient distance frcn the fair grounds rrn readily bo had from $1 to $2 per day. As for restaurant charges, they aro about as usual. The accom panying bill of fare will show that tha cost of living is not above 50 per cent more than It Is In Astoria. At the chop houses convenient to the grounds a good plain meal may be had for 25 cents, although If one hunts for expensive hotels they can be found In Chicago as well as elsewhere. In the fair grounds the charges are somewhat higher, being about equal to those of railroad restaurants and church socials, Any person coming here with the Idea of ''cutting a figure" or "doing the fair" can dispose of considerable money, but tha cost of a month's res! denca In Chicago need not exceed the very moderate sum of $100, divided as follows: , Sleeping accommodations $30.00 Admission to the fair 15,00 MtaJs .....32,50 Admission to Bide shows 22,50 Total...; $100.00 There Is quite a lively competition among the) hotels .and Ireritaurants, owing to the fact that the crowds are much smaller than anticipated, and until these conditions are changed no one need fear extortions In any par ticular.

The orchestra consists of a gourd fiddle torn torn, and several pieces of scrap Iron. One of the musicians fell asleep during a performance, but the audience did not mind, as It reduced the discord about 10 per cent. In the Turkish theatre a wedding g followed by a wedding dance.

The Irish village In the Midway laisance contains a miniature Blarney Castle, Inside the castle are rooms where Irish work Is exhibited. An old man whose face, to quote the words of Col. Pat Donan, "Is almost an exact topographical twin of the map of Ire land," plays the Irish bagpipes. This Is an improvement on the Scotch, If such an Infernal machine cai. be said to be Improved. Instead of blowing through a tube In the manner of a Scotchman, (the Hibernian countenance was decorated with a short pipe which looked black against a fringe of red chin whiskers) "The brith," to quote the musician, "came from the little belfus beneath me left arrum." Entering the fair grounds proper the visitor skirts the offices and arrives, at a bridge. Here he pauses to watch the fairy scene tho laguon stretching to the lower end, where the statue of the republic stands upon a pedestal In, the waters. Bak of the pedestal aro a number of Greek columns, and be yond Dtretches the great Lake Michi gan.

In the engineering department tho model of tho section of the jetty work at Fort Stevens occupies a prominent place, the cars being out on the track loaded with rock, but as no engines are attached, the stranger wonders how the cars got there. ' It would have Ven a great Improvement had engines Iieen attached. In order that a better Idea of the magnitude of the work might be obtained. In the fisheries department are some very good pictures by Astoria photo graphers and some model fish traps with boat and gear from various parts of tho country, but your correspondent was unable to find tho model fish boat sent by Mr. Kinney. Tho Oregon "fruit exhibit Is attract ing wide attention, and Is a great ad vertisement for the coast.
