NETS WEB TRAP WEB FOR LASTING QUHLITIES AMERICAN LABOR MAKES IT the Front ! STORE L Guests in a Chicago Hotel Burnt to Dcatn Lite Rats. INHALED FLAME AND BMOEE Some of Them Crnied-by Fear, Jnmped noun to the Street Itelow and Were Horribly Mangled. 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. ANOTHER BIG FIRE. Denver, Col., Aug. 14.-The Crescent Flouring Mills, the largest in the West, are burning. The loss will be over $300 000. CREEDON WON IN FIFTEJNTH. Itoby, Ind., Aug. 14.

In tho second round It was give and take, with honors easy. In the third, Greggains landed on Creedoil's face and got away without a return. Greggaln's generalship was much admired. The round was much In Greggaln's favor. In the fourth, and fifth there were numerous sharp exchanges. In the sixth, Creedon rushed his man and soon had himbleedlng at the mouth. Creedon scored the first knock-down, and almost had his man finished, but Greggalns came gamely to the scratch. i Round 6even started in with Cree don doing his man fast, but Greggalns had steam left, and held his own gamely.

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. . BEACH NOTES. Mr. Graver and Mark Warren went flown to Cannon Beach on Friday. MThey will camp at Will Warren's ranch for a few days. J. N. Griffin is still at Cannon Beach, his cottage being filled wltli visitors. Mr. Griffin met with -an experfenue last week that he will remember l.r many days. He went flHhIng- back in the mountains and while-following up a crooked stream, that Vinos down oiv; of the deep canyons back of the beauli, be lost his way. Late In he evening he found his trail to the beach near Elk Creek, and his Jattered garments and shoeless feet, told a tale of hardship experienced in his endeavor to get out of the dense Jungle. It Is not known whether he caught any fish, on that trip, but the probabilities are that he did not. Leo Mansur and family are at Canr nan Beach for' the summer. A party of fifteen, from Portland will be . at the Elk Creek House on Wed nesday next. ' Mrs. W. H. Rowe and daughter, Mrs. Amy Cummlngs of Salt Lake City, have arrived at the . coast an will spend a few days at Silver Cliffs with Mr. and Mrs. E. Jay Smith.

LOUNSBERRT, Agent- TIE - SENATE OS What Sonic of Onr Statesmen Say on the Subject. MICOflELL DAS BEEr,' UEAED Amendment! and a Variety of Rrmlnllnni ' ' Already Ileitis Offered fur the Solu tion of the Problem. Associated Press. 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 congress. . 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, FATALITY ON SNAKE RIVER. Portland, Or., Aug. 14. News has been received her that the Union Ptt' clflc Bteamer Annie Faxon, plying, on the Snake river between Rlparia: and Lewiston, blew up this morning at Wade's Bar, four miles below Almota. Six persons were killed and a number wounded Among the killed is Engineer Brown. The Faxon was a stern-wheel er, with a capacity of 564 tons. Colfax, Aug. 14. A Commoner spe clal says the steamer Annie Faxon blew up oft Walle's Bar, four miles be low Almota, on the Snake river, at 8 o'clock this morning. Eight persons were killed and ail on board were in Jured. There were five passengers. The vessel waa blown to pieces. The names of the killed are: Thos. Mcintosh, and his brother, pascne"er; Mrs- Tappan, the purser's mjfe; George Farwell, a waiter; Joseph Bush, a deck hand William Kidd, a deck hand; and ''a firemannamed Paul. The injured are: Jack Morltz, stew ord; Sage Aiken, anBlstant engineer; Captain Henry Baughman; Daniel Bechtol, and two others. Aid was sent Immediately by teams from Colfax. Klmoro. Sanborn & Co.'s salmon Clr cular for the season of 1893, hns the 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. ularlty, not a case having been sold to the foreign trade. Fall packing on out side Oregon rivers will be confined to a few localities noted for the excel lence of the fish packed. The pack of the season Is distributed as follows: Ahorrippn 30.000. American Star 9,000, McOowan's 12,000, North Shore lO.GOO, Hilar Rock 13,500, Megler 14,000, War- ren (Cathlamet) 11,000, Ocean 7,500, Hapgood 12,000, 'Hume 8,000, JJlmore 18,000, Cutting 15,200, Kinney 42,000, . Booth 19,000, George & Barker 14,000, Hanthorn 21,000, Fishermen's 15,000, , Cook 18,000, Warren (Cascades) 3r,000, Bucchelt 13,000, Dalles 18,000. ' Total, 375,700. ' ALONG THE WHARVES. The.R. P.
