CrnoAao, Ills., July 11. Early thiB
morning the remains of three more tin
forunates were recovered from yester
day's fearful fire. The remains are so
badly charred that Identification Is im
possible. They are evidently not tbe
bodies of firemen, owing to tho. locality
In which they were found. The total
number of dead bodies so far recovered
Is 15, but the search in tho ruins thus
far has been very slight There Is great
beat and confusion, and there is no
doubt the list la still incomplete.
It is now certain that a number of
visitors and workmen were In tho
building at the time the fire broke out.
Therefore It has been deolded to make
a minute examination of the ruins, foot
by foot, as rapidly as possible.
The eleetno light company have a
number. of men missing, and four Co
lumbian guards are still unaccounted
It has been deilnitoly ascertained
that only 11 firemen lost their Uvea as

GOLD STORAGE WAREHOUSE HELL
Chicago' Mayor Says tho City
Chicago, July 11. Asa fire trap
tho cold ntorago warobouso could not
have been mora perfectly constructed.
ItvasJJ50 feet long and 150 feet srldo,
made of wood and covered with staff.
Tbe main body of tbe building was
flvo stories high. In tho center rose tho
smokestack in the shapo of n cupola
200 feet high. Its base was about thirty
feet square, and ninety feet up there
was a balcony from which rose a tower
culminating in (ho mouth of tho smoko
stack, where the firo was lafd. It la
Supposed that tho framework around
tho mouth of the chimney caught Ore
from a defect in the iluo.
At fJiBt It appeared to be an Insignifi
cant affair, but, knowing the inflam
mable nature of tbe structure, Fire
Marshal Murphy called oil the compan
ies nut. With about forty of bis men
Captain Jfttzpatrlok climbed the ladder
Inside the tower to the balcony and
from there ropes wore lowered to haul
up the hose. Ono line of hose bad beeq
gotten up when tho wind caused tbe
flames to break out in an alarming
manner about ten foot from the top of
the cupola. In tho meantime tho Are
had eaten its way down the inside of
the structure and all unconscious of
the fact the firemen were standing on
the shell of a burning volcano.
Tho fire bad been burning scarcely
twenty minutes whon suddenly flames
burst out around tho baso of the balcony
In perfect fury. All tho roperv hanging
from tbe tower were burned away.
One hose withstood tbe heat, however,
and John Davis caught hold of it and
slid down to the main roof where he
fainted. His face and bands were
terribly burned but physicians say
he will recover. Two of his fellow
firemen attempted to follow blm but be
fore they were half way dowu tho hose
gavo way and they dropped Into tbe
seething mass of Are and were lost.
Another man started down a portion
of rope hanging from tho tower but it
gave way and he full, striking on bis
head and being Instantly killed.
There now remained, according to
tho count of various spectators, twenty
five to thirty men on tbo tower. Thoy
wero hopelessly beyond human help,
tho longest ladder falling short by fully
thirty feet. At this terrlblo moment
Captain Fitzpatrlok's tall ferm appeared
before tho mon who wero huddled to
gether on tbo narrow balcony. He
seemed to bo addressing bis bravo fol
lowers. As he ceased speaking one of
the men crept around the burning bal
cony and returned a moment later with
a rope. It was hastily fastened to the
rrulllng around the balcony aud thrown
to tbo roof. Fitzpatrick was seen to
point to It aud ono of tho men started
to slide down but before he was half
down the cruel flumes rolled up and he
was swallowed iu tho awful volcano.
Another tried it aud met the same fate.
One after another ilvo of tho men at
this point sprang from tbo balcony to
tbo roof. If any survived tho awful
leap they were burned to death after
wards. The rope burned off about half way
down but Fltzpatrlok, seeing the men
jumping to doom, seized tho strand and
started down. Ho dropped from the
end of tho rope and caught on tbo lad.
der which was raised to within twenty
feet of It. Fire Marshal Murphy, who
was on the roof, sprang forward and
soon reached Fitzpatrick. A shout of
admiration and encouragement went
up. Tho heroio marshal started back
with bis friend, enveloped In flames.
With tbe energy of despair heolutcbed
bis comrade and slid down tbe ladder.
Both Murphy and Fltzpatrlok were un
conscious when picked up. The Form
er, however, was not seriously hurt,
but Fitzpatrick was not expected to
survive tbe night.
Scarcely twenty-five minutes htd
elapsed since tbe fire was discovered
but so rapid bad been Its progress that
the entire tower burned away aud fell
with an awful crash carrying with It
tbe unfortunates who were left on the
balcony and several firemen who wero
playlugon the flames with (he hose
from the roof.
Seeing It was a hopeless task to at
tempt to save'tbo building tbe remain
ing firemen directed their efforts to
keeping tbe flame from spreading fur-

of tho world's fulr stables and tho roofs
of several hotels across Stony Island
avenue, just outside tho grounds, were
on nre. Tho hotels wero saved with
difficulty but tho stables wore des
troyed. Less than two hours after tbo
fire started tho cold storasco warehouse
was u smoking ruin. It Is doubtful if
any of tho bodies will over bo tecovured,
so furious and terrlflo was tho beut.
A fow weeks ago Marshal Murphy
inspected tho burned building and re
ported it extremely unsafe. On no
count of his report tbe Insurauco com
panics cancelled all risks on It, so the
loss Ib complete. It Is reported by some
of tho Columbian guards that n nam
ber of women lost tholr Ilve In the
building. Firemen discredit the story
but tonight a lady'a watch was found
ou a body so badly burned that It Is im
possible to toll whether It Is that of a
man or woman.
A relief fund was started by tho
council of administration as soo t as tbo
extent of the disaster was known and

THE POLITICAL U0DND-UP.
There seems to bo a rcrlous hitch la
tho progress of building the jute mill at
Salem. A largo appropriation was
made by tbo last legislature and soon1
after It adjourned stops were taken to
got tho plant In working order to turn
out bags for tho grain crop ofl893
The officials In chargo bustled about
considerably. Exports wore consulted
In several branches of tho subject. The
superintendent of tbo prison, anxious
to have his convicts employed, made
several trlp9 of Inquiry, and since then
we have beard nothing but.a dull lull
n tbo prpceedlugs. Tho way tho ora
tors spouted In the legislature one would
bavo thought tho people were suffering
for tho institution more than for re
ligion. Speaker Keady and others told
bow muoh would bo saved annually to
tho farmers of Oregon. It was stated
at sevoral hundred thousand. Well,
tho farmers aro ready to be saved. The
intere t on tho money could be saved
too, for that Is u very neat sum to Ho
Idle a year. And If'tho Jute mill Is not
built this year in tlmo for tho crop to
got tho benefit of cheaper bags, they
may as well wait u year. The farmers
will lose tbo use of cheap grain bags
when they need them as never before
to mako a living out of cheap grain. If (
tho 100,000 Juto mlllls not to be built
then the tax should not be levied. If
i( is levied and collected It should not
lloidle. The writer may not be an ex
pert at managing scch matters, but he
Is pretty euro no private business would
bo managed In this way. There is no
good reason whythojuto mill, 'which
was a sop thrown to tbo farmers to
pulllato tbo other acts of this lato legis
lature, should not bo erected and iu
dpemtlon before this, or at least in time
to sell tho farmers bags In tlnn for this
season's crop, as was so confidently
promised a few months ago by Its
champions. There Is also a great loss
to tho state from the hundreds of con
victs at tho state prison not being em
ployed, It will be said money comes
Iu slowly aud If warrants were issued
to pay for tho work as it preceeds they
would havo to bear Intercut. Be that
as it may, tho Interest on oven a hun
dred thousand dollars of jute mill war
rants would but be a bagatelle com
pared with ameliorating the depressed
agriculturists by giving tbem cheaper
grain bags to haul their 60 cent wheat
to markot in. Tho legislature certain
ly Intended to give the Immense grain
crops of our country an opportunity to
bo marketed moro cheaply. It Is truo
thoy did not opon tho Columbia and
Willamette rivers to the sea. But they
passed an appropriation bill of S 105,000
to give tho farmers cheaper grain bags.
If thoro wasoeratlme when tho farm
ers needed to get their grain to market
cheaply it is at presout.
Congressman Blnger Herman Is sub
jected to some criticism at present on
account of his tackllug the finance qucs
est Ion It is difficult for a public man to
reveal to much ignorance on that ques
tion too not bo rewarded by a largo vote
fur his revelations, Besides Mr.
Herman must uot bo taken too seri
ously. But a few years ago a politician
mado a canvass of tho state on the
Issue of courts of arbitration to settle
difficulties between labor and capital.
He got tho entire labor vote and was
elected by a large majority. That
was the last ever heard of the subject.
He never believed In It. Ho shrewdly
.took advautage of a popular olamor
and rode lu ou the wave of an excite

never Intended should be relieved. He
was himself a largo employer and the
last man Iu tho world to submit bis
