A STORM-SWEPT COAST. CANAI AND SUBSIDY BILLS Snow, Gale* and High Tides Prevailing on the Atlantic. An Insane Asylum Cottage Burned at Yankton. WOMEN PATIENTS THE VICTIMS The Thermometer Registered 23 Below Zero, But Prompt Action Saved Others From Freezlug. . i Yankton, S. D., Feb. 14.—A most horrifying tire occurred this morning at 2 o'clock at tire state insane asy lum, when one of the cottages was com* pletely gutted and caused tiie loss of the lives of 17 women inmates. Tiie cottage bad stone and granite walls with wooden interiors, and in tended for lanndty purposes. Owing to the crowded condition of the main building, 40 of the female patients were placed here with the laundry in the basement. The fire originated in the diyrootn of the laundry. Here there was a coil of steam pipes, and the theory is that either fine particles simi lar to lint settled on the pipes and ig nited, or that clothes which were thickly hung close by dropped on to the pipes and were fired. The fighting ot the fire was greatly hindered by the loss of power. The only source of water was an artesian well, 400 feet distant, the pipes for pumping which ran through the cot tage. The intense heat soon cause! the pipes to burst, thus leaving the fire men without power, and dependent en tirely upon the direct pressure from the tank. But two streams of water could be thrown on the building, and these did but little good. Fifty-two persons wers in the build ing, 40 patients and 12 attendants. The structure was three stories and an attic high, and had two entrances. There was one stairway from the sec ond and third floors, which led into the main hall, thus giving but one egress for those above the first floor. Patients and attendants fled with ter ror, great confusion resulting, especially among those on the upper floors. Many heartrending scenes were enacted as the inmates, clad only in their night clothes and barefooted, rushed down the narrow flight of stairs, and Anally out into the enow. The temperature was 23 degrees below zero, and further loss of life from freezing was prevented alone by prompt work of the attend ants from the main buildings. The at tendants escaped, as did the others, who were Baved, with none of their personal effects, many losing all they possessed. Portions of charred re mains can be seen in the debris at the bottom of the basement. The four walls of stone still stand, black and grim, and will make the work of re moval dangerous, as a total collapse is liable to occur without a moment's warning. The institution was destroyed by fire in 1882, when six lives were lost. The pecuniary loss at today’s fire is * 18,000, uninsured. Boston, Feb. 11.—A howling north east snow storm has prevailed in the bay and along Massachusetts coast dur ing the past 24 hours. A three masted schooner, name unknown, is reported wrecked off Nantasket beach. The Hull lifesaving crew has sent out a boat. At present writing it is not known whether or not the ve.ovl’d crew are still alive. Boston harbor was a fury of driven snow and scattered spray. The ferry- boat slips were under water, and pas sengers had to wade for it. The storm played havoc with prop erty along the Lynn and Swampscott shores. The exceptionally high tides swept away all buildings and de molished yachts and other small craft lying upon the shore at Kings Beach in Swampscott. At Lynn, at high tide, the water went a considerable distance up New Washington street, flooding the cellars of several residences and making car and foot traffio difficult. The sea de molished $5,000 worth of stone break water on the front. Down on Cape Cod a howling northeast blizzard, such as preaviled last November on the aw ful night when the steamer Portland went down with all on board, raged all day. None of the lighships could be seen and it was impossible to learn whether the Pollock Rip lightship was holding its moorings or not. BY TREMENDOUS LACK OF TIME j ' SEAS. Vancouver, B. C., Feb. 11.—The steamer Empress of Japan arrived yes- , terday from Ilong Kong and Yoko- i liania. Mail advices say that the j steamer Kinshui Maru, which sailed from Seattle December 28, lost six men overboard on her trip across. When two days out the wind blew a gale fiom the northeast with mountainous seas. Some of the crew, led by Mr. Laprack, chief officer, were secuiing hitch covers and all movable fittings on the after deck, when a very heavy sea broke on board, completely filling the after deck and washing overboard the apprentice, officer and four sailors. Captain Brady at once put about in search ot the men, but could not find them. Several companion-ways of the Kinshni were carried away, besides large pieces of bulwarks. INVESTIGATE MILES’ CHARGES.

Both Will Be Sidetracked at This Session. Washington, Feb. 11.—Chairman Cannon, of the appropriations com mittee of the house, in the course of a general debate on the sundry civil bill today, sounded a note of warning against extravagant appropriations, and particularly served notice that neither ship-subsidy bill nor the Nicaragua canal bill could be passed at this ses sion. Although he specifically dis claimed speaking for any one but him self, the statements he made, coming fiom the chairman of the appropria tions committee, caused great inter est. Cannon made a statement of the expenditures and revenue for the pres ent fiscal year, increasing Secretary Gage’s estimate of the deficiency in the revenues from $112,000,000 to $159,- 000,000, exclusive of the $20,000,000 to be paid to Spain under the provi sions of the treaty of Paris. At the opening of the session of the house today, a bill to amend the war revenue act was passed, providing that when a bond or note was secured by mortgage but one stamp should be affixed, of a higher rate due on either instrument. Among other bills passed was one granting railways the right of way through the Nez Perces reserva tion, in Idaho; to grant Boulder, Colo., 1,800 acres of land in the mountain« for a park; to remove the existing dis ability of Confederates, preventing them from sitting on federal, petit and grand juries (thia was the last of the political disabilities of ex Confederates to be removed), and for the relief of the heirs of the late Edward De Leon, late consul-general to Egypt. The house then went into committee of the whole and took up the consider ation of the sundry civil appropriation bill. Cannon (Rep. Ill.), in charge of the measure, made a general analysis of what it contained. It carries $62,- 928,101, but $20,000,000 ia for pay ment to Spain to carry out the provi sions of the Paris treaty. Exclusive of that, the bill carries $8,095,758 less than the estimates, and $5,929,311 less than the current law. Cannon’s statement of the condition of the ievenues brought on a general discussion, which lasted until adjourn ment. Tn the Senate. Washington, Feb. 11. — Several bills of minor importance were passed by i the senate this morning. One of them was to restore to their original status as to promotion officers of the navy and marine corps who lost numbers by rea son of advancement of othei officers for exceptional and meritorious service dur ing the war with Spain. Another bill passed authorized the purchase or construction of a launch for the customs service at Astoria, Or., to cost not more than $2,500. Consideration of the executive, legis lative ami judicial bill was then re sumed. The paragraph relating to the deposit of copyright works in the na tional library was sti icken out with the intention of revisiug it in conference. A brief but lively civil service de bate was precipitated by an inquiry of Cockrell, concerning the expenditure of money for the office of supervising architect. He maintained that the work of the supervising architect’s office was done slowly, if not badly. The construction of public buildings dragged through year after year. Were those buildings being erected by private individuals they would be completed in one season. Following a general discussion, the pending bill was laid aside, after 51 pages had been disposed of, and at 6:15, on motion of Hoar, the senate went Into executive session and sooon adjourned. Army Bill Must Pass. Washington, Feb. 11.—The Post says: “The army reorganization bill must pass or the president will call an extra session of congress. The opposi tion to the bill in the senate has al ready been frequently referred to in the Post, and the prediction made that some compromise would be agreed upon whereby legislation of a temporary character would be placed in the j aimv appropriation bill. This will not satisfy the administration. No make-shift expedient will be accepted. The president has determined that the passage of the army bill shall be made an issue, and there is no doubt in administration circles that he will be successful. If, however, an ob stacle should prevent action, an extra session will surely be held.” An Independent Line. Portland, Or., Feb. 11.—Millionaire William G. Tiffany, of New York, the largest holder in the proposed Portland and Seattle road, vehemently denies that the Union Pacific or any other road will have any interest in the new line.

Denver, Colo., Feb. 11.—A mortgage for 920,000,000, given to the Central Trust Company, of New York city, by the Colorado & Southern railway, was filed in this county today. The rev enue stampe used aggregate«] $35,250. Washington, Feb. 11.—General Otis cables the war department that the to tal casualties resulting from all engage ments since the of evening February 4 aggregate 268, as follows: Killed, 3 officers, 56 enlisted men; wounded, 8 officers, 169 enlistd men; missing, 2 enlisted men. ATTACK ON CALOCAN. town Reduced by Combined Assault of American Forces. Manila, Feb. 18.—The American forces at 3:10 this afternoon made a combined attack upon Colocau and re duced it in short order. At a signal from the tower of the de la Lome church (United States signal station), the double-turreted monitor Monadnock opened fire from the bay with the big guns of her fore tui let on the earth- works, with great effect. Soon after ward the battery bombarded the place from another position. The rebels reserved their fire until the bombardment ceased, when they fired volleys of musketry as the Mon tana regiment advanced on the jungle. The Kansas regiment, on the ex treme left, with the artillery deploying to the right, charged across the open and canied the earthworks, cheering under a heavy fire. Supported by the artillery at the church, the troops fur ther advanced, driving the enemy, fighting every foot, right into the town line, and penetrated to the presidency and lowered the Filipino flag at 5:30 P. M. The enemy's sharpshooters in the jungle on the right fired at long range on the Pennsylvania regiment, but the rebels were soon silenced by sharpnel shells and the Pennsylvania remained in the trenches. As the Americans advanced they burned the native houses. The rebels were mowed down like grass, but the American losses were slight. AFTER A TOWNSITE. A Portion of th« City ot Roalvn Clalm.d by Swan N.l.on—Oth.r Coast N.wa. Ira M. Krutz and Bogle ft Rigg have begun an action in the superior court of Kititas county for the recovery of 160 acres upon which the townsite of lloslyn. Wash., is located, and the im provements of the Northern Pacifio Railway Copmany, amounting to about $150.000. This suit is brought against the coal company and railway com pany in behalf of Swan Nelson, who claims under title of an application for a homestead filing, made in June, 1884, but which was rejected by the local land office. The main ouestion involved in the contest for possession of this valuable properety hinges upon ti e validity of the railroad company’s withdrawals of 1873 and 1879, and re filing of maps of definite location.
