Associated Press. . ,
Chicago, Aug. 14. A hotel fire re
sulting in the death of a number of
guests occurred this ' morning' in a
three-story house near Fifth Avenue.
A man Jumped from1 the top of the
bullddng and was killed, and about
half a dozen v others were suffocated,
and burned to death. The body of Har
ry Godfrey, seven years old, was re
covered. The building was a dilapidated
structure,' which was occupied by
restaurant on the first floor, and by
the Senate Hotel on the upper floors.
Thirty guests ' were In the building
when the fire broke out, and those per
ished in the fire, caught like rats in
a' trap, unable to make their escape.
Three additional bodies have been tak
en' from the ruins, but none are' Iden
tified. In all, seven people were burned
to death. : :
The origin of the fire is a mystery,
but It la supposed that It was caused
by thft overturning or explosion of a
stand lamp. The night clerk had Just
gone to the wash room to clean up,
preparatory to leaving his watch, when
he heard a slight noise outside the of
fice. By the time he returned to it, the
place was full of smoke, and he had
barely time after shouting fire, a few
times, to escape down stairs. Jdward
Short, and one unknown dead man
would have been saved had they
obeved the firemen. who were getting
ladders in position while they were at
the windows. The firemen shouted to
them to keep cool, but "they seemed
crazed wit fear and Jumped from Hhe
third floor to thet flagstones below, sus
taining fatal Injuries. Some others in
haled the flames and died In horrible
agony and two were suffocated by in
halation of smoke. The firemen say
the place was the worst kind of a fire
trap. Owing to the fact that It was
but three stories high, the law did not
compel the owners to put fire escapes
on the building .and this fact Is ac
countable for most of the loss of life.

) ' THE WEEK AT SEASIDE.
- As long as the good weather contin
ues) people will flock to the seaside re
sorts. The Clatsop beaches have a
good crowd now, ' In spite of the pre
vailing hard times, and each; incoming
boat adds new faces to the large num
ber already there. Of course there- is a
falling oft from last year at the hotels,
but the cottages are all filled, and
campers seem just 'as numerous as
they were last year. The visitors seem
contented to stroll around the beach,
go In bathing or picnic quietly in some
of; the pretty groves about Seagldo
an.1 Gearhart, all of which amusements
call but lightly on the holiday maker's
picket book. Still there were several
delightful little gatherings last week,
boating and bonfire parties, partici
pated in by the cottagers and camp
ers.. The Neeanlcum holds a peculiar at
traction for the Portland angler, and
scarcely a day passes, but some en
thusiastic wlelder'of the rod and reel
comes In with a well filled basket of
speckled beauties taken from the pools
of this stream. Col. Ed. Hughes was
down last week and made several
good hauls on . the upper creek, but
even his best friends have failed to
get a confession from him as to the
exact number of fish he landed.

of the dense Jungle. It Is not known
whether he caught any fish, on that
trip, but the probabilities are that he

What Sonic of Onr Statesmen Say on
MICOflELL DAS BEEr,' UEAED
Amendment! and a Variety of Rrmlnllnni
' ' Already Ileitis Offered fur the Solu
tion of the Problem.
Washington, Aug. 14. While the mo
notonous debate over the question of
recolnage or repeal Is progressing in
the houBe with no prospect of a vote
until two wteks from today, Indica
tions are that he Benate will devote
Its first legislative action to entirely
another remedy for the financial sit.
uallon that of permitting of national
banks to issue currency to the par val
ue of their United States bonds on de
posit in the treasury. Thus the two bod
les will be working somewhat at cross
purposes and out of the complications
to ensue, no one knows what will fin
ally happen. The document In the sen
ate are decidedly discouraging to those
who hoped for the unconditional re
peal of the Sherman luw. The lntrouc;
tlon . by Senator Voorhees of tho In
creased currency bill and Its reference
to the committee of which he Is chair
man, indicates, that the finance com
mittee will first seek relief in recom
mending te Issue of national bank
notes to par value of the bonds depos
ited, and that the questions of free
coinage and the repeal of the Sherman
act will be relegated to the futurs for
more consideration. Later In the day,
when Senator Vest reaffirmed his al
legiance to ' bimetallism and spoke
against the unconditional repeal of the
Sherman act, the repealing men found
greater cause fr disappointment. When
the senate met an avalanche of peti
tions was presented and referred. Some
pruyed for the repeal of the purchas
ing clause of the Bherman law.; quite
as many were against repeal, and sev
eral were for the free use of sliver as
legal tender In .the United States. Some
begged for free coinage of silver at "the
ratlq of 16 to 1. ' y
Mitchell of Oregon, gave notice of an
amendment to be offered to the Joint
resolution to maintain the parity of
gold and silver. The amendment after
a long preamble, declares that It Is the
senBe of congress that no changes shall
be made In the tariff during the C3d
Vest, demacrat, of ' Missouri, Intro
duced a Wll for the coinage of Bilvot
bullion in the treasury, saying that it
was sent him from New York, and met
his partlul approval.
Stewart sent to the clerk's desk, to
have read, an article from the New
York Recorder, under the heading:
"Give us free silver." After a portion
of the article had been read an objeo-
tlon to the further reading was made
by Hoar and Hawley, and the article
was rdered printed as a document,
Stewart remarking, that the Recorder
was the first great paper In the city
of New York that had said a word
against the annihilation and destruc
tion of half the money of the country,
and this showed that either the senti
ment of New York on the subject of
silver was changing, or that the Re
corder was a very brave paper.
Hoar gave notice that he will tomor
row call up a resolution as to the Mon
tana senatorlul case, and that he wuld
on Wednesday press it to a conclusion,

ffllwlnir to say concerning the pack
"Thn total salmon park f'r the iwa-
on of 1893, which closed tonight, In
375,700 cases of all grades, or about
equal to that of 1891, and 90,000 casew
sliort of last year's pack. Of these, a
large proportion are flat cans, anil
have been sold for domestic use. Tho
conditions for fishing this year , were
similar to those of 1877 and 1887, the
weather being cold, wet and stormy,
and the freshet being of. almost une
qualed duration. Excepting in May,
there were comparatively few fish
packed, the usual heavy run of July
being conspicuous by Its absence. That
the supply Is not diminishing is amply
demonstrated by the fact that at the
Cascades, where the pack ordinarily
consists almost entirely of blue backs.
there were more large fish caught than
during any previous season In the his
tory of the Industry. Tills unusual feat
ure Is easily explained, the fish having
run deep on account of the long con
tinued freshet, and thus escaped all
the iets on their way to the upper
river. The trapa, usually an appreci
able source of BUpply, were this year a
failure, owing to the currents and
enormous quantities of .drift. There
will not be a single unsold can of
salmon on the Columbia river this
season, and many of the canners will
be short in their deliveries. In view of
the general business depression
throughout the country, the increasing'
demand for Columbia salmon argues
well for Us matchless quality and pop.

the foreign trade. Fall packing on out
