Over One Hundred Inmates Perish In Flame! of the Hurtling Building-Fearful and Awful Scenes of .Death—Other Urea. the THE HEE RECORD. The Longue Pointe. Que., May G.—A long line of gaunt towers is all one now sees of the Longue Point lunatic asylum, located ten miles from Montreal, and which, with many lives, was to-day consumed by the flames. The sights witnessed during this tragic scene are such us can never be forgotten. Nothing could exceed the horror attending the terrible calamity, considering the number of victims, the terrible nature of their death and the mariner in which the helpless victims received their fate. What to the spectators was a scene of horror was to tin* lunatics a moment of supreme glee, arid in their delight, they disported themselves in tic: flames and WA VEU THEIR GLAZING LIM HS in turbulent satisfaction at the ruin that was about them and not until the walls tumbled over their heads were their maniacal screams Hleneeo. There were incarcerated in Longue Pointe thirte.cn hundred lunatics, for that asylum was a prison more than a hospital, and now not more than eleven hundred are accounted for, but many escaped into the fields arid woods, and the dead are ashes amongst ashes. What tim number of dead i.~ purely a matter of conjecture and can never be ascertained, since no other record is kept than that in the asylum hooks, and they were destroyed. Taking into consideration the whole of the evidence frorfl the firemen. the half-sane inmates, and the sisters in charge, it is a conservative estimate to say that A MUMMIED VICTIMS met their deaf Ii, though some assert the number i> double that and others place it below this figure. However, the fact remains that no such calamity lias fallen Upon the. Province of Quebec, since the earliest limes. Ever since Quebec wats a proviuceits management of these most helpless of all creatures lias been its shame. They have been farmed out to nuns at sloe a head per year, and the sisters aim to keep them as frugally as possible.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Rockwood, Ta., May 6.—The people of this little village were aroused by the cry of fire last night at 1:30 o'clock, and in an instance the bells wrerc ringing and everybody was busy at work to keep the fire from spreading. The lire, when lir.-t discovered was breaking through the windows of the Thomas building. The Snyder Brothers were carrying a good stock of merchandise, with but little in-surance. The building a few feet south, owned by H. S. Mitchell, dealer in hardware and implement", seemed doomed in spite of all efforts to subdue tile fire, but at last the fire was got under control, the building and contents were saved, but were greatly damaged; then the two dwellings north were in great danger and willing hands were ready to help fight lire. The loss is estimated at about 87,000, with little or no insurance. Gus. Leisy & Co., plaintiffs in error. vs. A. J. Hardin. Mr. Chief Justice Fuller delivered the opinion of the court: The power vested in congress "to regulate.commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes,” is the power to prescribe the rule by which that commerce is to be governed, and is a power complete in itself. acknowledging no limitations other than those prescribed in the constitution.

Sister Therese. the superioress, is broken-hearted and being at present in ill health, her name may lie added to the already long list of victims. Doctors Bourque and Baralot were carried from the building unconscious. and whatever must be said of the management as a whole, the individuals exercised every power to lessen the calamity they had neglected to avoid. A loud ox plosion was followed by a crash of beams. The interior was giving way. Wild faces sank from the windows and THE SHRIEKS OF MANIACS were lost in the general uproar, and one by one the walls toppled inward and a fierce blaze that burst up from the newly added fuel rose to the dark sky and shot its glare over the St. Lawrence to the southern shore and even tinged the crest of Mount Royal ton miles distant. Then it died down into blackness and nothing but the few broken towers remained. The spring rains had converted the place into a quagmire and only horsemen could get from place to place.

Quincy, May 6.—The umpire awarded the game to Peoria, nine to nothing. over persons and property within its limits. a state may provide for the security of the lives, limbs, health, and comfort of persons and the protection of property. so situated, yet a subject-matter which has been confided exclusively to congress by the constitution is not within the jurisdiction of the police power of the statu, unless placed tliere by congressional action. Henderson vs. Mayor of New York. 92 U. S. 259; R. II. Co. vs. Huson, 85 U. S. 465: Walling vs. Michigan, 116 II. S. 446; Robbins vs. Shelby Taxing District, 120 U. S. 489. The power to regulate commerce among the states is a unit, but if particular subjects within its operation do. not require the application of a general or uniform system, the states may legislate in regard to them wit ii a view to local needs and circumstances, until congress otherwise directs; but the power thus exercised by the states is not identical iii its extent with the power to regulate commerce among the states. The power to pass laws in respect to internal commerce, inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws, and laws in relation to bridges, ferries and highways, belongs to the class of powers pertaining to locality, essential to local inter-communication, to the progress and development of local prosperity, and to the protection, the safety and the welfare of society, originally necessarily belonging to, and upon the adoption of the constitution reserved by the states, except so far as falling within the scope of a power confided to the general government. Where the subject-matter requires a uniform system as between the states, the power controlling it is vested exclusively in congress, and cannot be encroached upon by the states; but where, in relation to the subject-matter, different rules may be suitable for different localities, the states may exercise powers which, though they may be said to partake of the nature of the power granted to the general government, are strictly not such. but are simply local powers, which have full operation until or unless circumscribed by the action of congress in effectuation of the general power. Cooley vs. Port Wardens, 12 How. 299. It was stated in the thirty-second number of the Federalist that the states might exercise concurrent and independent power iii all cases but three: First, where the power was lodged exclusively in the federal constitution; second. where it was given to the United States and prohibited to the states;third, where, from the nature and subjects of the power, it must be necessarily exercised by the national government exclusively. But it is easy to see that congress may assert an authority under one of the granted powers, which would exclude the exercise by the states upon the same subject of a different but similar power, between which and that possessed by the general government no inherent repugnancy existed. Whenever, however, a particular power of the general government is one which must necessarily be exercised by it. and congress remains silent, this is not only not a concession that the [lowers reserved by the states may be exerted as if the specific power had not been elsewhere reposed. but, on the contrary, the only legitimate conclusion is that the general government intended that power should not be affirmatively exercised, and the action of the states cannot be permitted to effect that which would be incompatible with such intention. Hence, inasmuch as interstate commerce, consisting in the transportation, purchase, sale and exchange of commodities, is national in its character, and must be governed by a uniform system, so long as congress does not pass any law to regulate it. or allowing the states so to do, it thereby indicates its will that such commerce shall be free and untrammeled. County of Mobile vs. Kimball, 102 U. S. 691; Brown vs. Houston, 114 U. S. 622, 631; Wabash Railroad company vs. Illinois. lls f. S. 557; Robbins vs. Shelby Taxing District, 120 IT. S. 489. 493. That ardent spirits, distilled liquors, ale and beer are subjects of exchange, barter and traffic like any other commodity in which a right of tariff exists, and are so recognized by the usages of the commercial world, the laws of congress and the decisions of courts is not denied. Being thus articles of commerce, can a state, in the absence of legislation on the part of congress, prohibit their importation from abroad or from a sister state? Or when imported, prohibit their sale by the importer? If the importation cannot be prohibited without, the consent of congress, when does property imported from abroad, or from a sister state, so become part of the common mass of property within a state as to be subject to its unimpeded control? In Brown vs. Maryland (supra) the aet of the state legislation drawn in question was held invalid as repugnant to the prohibition of the constitution upon the states to lay any import or duty upon imports or exports, and to the clause granting tile power to regulate commerce; and it was laid down by the great magistrate who presided over this court for more than a third of a century, that, the point of time when the prohibition ceases and the power of the state tdlA^ commences, is not the instant when Ste’article enters the country, but when the importer has so acted upon it that it has become incorporated and mixed up with the mass of property in the country, which happens when the original package is no longer such iii his hands: that the distinction is obvious between a tax which intercepts the import as an import on its way to become incorporated with the general mass of- property, and a tax which finds the articles already incorporated witth bat mass by the act of the importer; that as to the power to regulate commerce. none of the evils which proceeded from the feebleness of the federal government. contributed more to the great revolution which introduced the present system than the deep and general conviction that commerce ought lobe regulated by congress; that the grant should be as extensive as the mischief, and should comprehend all foreign commerce and all commerce among the states; that that power was eomple in itself, acknowledged no limitations other than those prescribed by the constitution, was co-extensive with the subject on which it acts and not to be stopped at the external boundary of a state, but must be capable of entering its interior, that the right to sell any article imported was an inseparable incident to the right to import it; and that the principles expounded in the case applied equally to importations to a sister statei Manifestly this must be so, for the same public policy .applied to where the transportation terminates was iii terms reserved, yet the argument of th<‘ majority conducts irresistibly to that conclusion, and we think we cannot do better than repeat the grounds upon which the decision was made to rest. It is there shown that the transportation of freight or of th** subjects of commerce, for the purpose of exchange or sale, is beyond all question a constituent I therefore, the law of till- — f important In that case the defeud- \\ ashtxgtox. May 6.—An effort was made by the senate republican silver committee to-day to agree upon a silver bill to be reported to the caucus. Three of the thirteen members were absent.

The I t Jones bill direets the secretary of the I of commerce itself: that this was the prominent idea in the minds of the framers of the constitution, when to congress was committed the power to regulate commerce among the several states: that the power to prevent embarrassing restriction" by any state was the end desired; that the power was given by the same words and in the same clause by which was conferred power to regulate commerce with foreign nations; and that it would be absurd to suppose that the transmission of the subjects of trade from the state of the buyer, or from the place of production to the market, was not contemplated, for without that, there could be no consummated trade, either wit h foreign nations or among the states. It is explained that where state laws alleged to be regulations of commerce among the states have been sustained, they were laws which related to bridges or dams across streams, wholly within the state, or police or health laws, or to subjects of a kindred nature, not strictly of commercial regulation. But the transportation of passengers or of merchandise from one state to another is in its nature national, admitting of but one regulating power: and it was to guard against the possibility of commercial embarrassments which would result if one state could directly or indirectly tax persons or property passing through it. or wise.to Portsmouth, and there sold in the same barrel and in the same condition in which it was purchased in Massachusetts. but contrary to the law of New Hampshire in that behalf. The conclusion of the opinion of Mr. Chief Justice Taney is in these words: “Upon the whole, New Hampshire is iii my judgment a valid one. For. although the gin sold was an import from another state, and congress has clearly the power to regulate such importations. under tin* grant of power to regulate commerce among the several states, yet, I the congress has made no regulation on t the subject, the traffic in the article may i be lawfully regulated by the state as I soon as it is landed in its territory, and a I tax imposed upon it, or a license re- 1 quired, or the sale altogether prohibited. I according to the policy which tho state I may suppose to be its interest or duty to j pursue.” Referring to the cares of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the chief justice, after saying that if the laws of the state, came ; in collision with the laws of congress an-thorning the importation of spirits and ! distilled liquors, it would be the duty of the court to declare them void, thus continues:    “It    has,    indeed,    been suggested, that, if a state deems the traffic in ardent spirits to be injurious to its citizens, and calculated to introduce immorality, vice, and pauperism into the state, it may constitutionally refuse to permit its importation, notwithstanding the laws of congress; and that a state may do this upon the same principles that it may resist and prevent the introduction of disease, pestilence, or pauperism from abroad. But it must be remembered that disease In the 3im chamber whence but yesterday Passed my beloved, tilled with awe I stand: And haunting Loves fluttering on every hand Whisper her praises who is far away. A thousand delicate fancies glance and play On every object which her robes have fanned, And tenderest thoughts and hopes bloom and expand In the sweet memory of her beauty's ray. Ah ’ could that glass but hold the faintest trace Of all the loveliness once mirrored there. The clustering gloryof the shadowy hair That framed so well the dear young angel face! But no, it shows my ewn free, full of care, And my heart her beauty’s dwelling place. -John Hay in Senbncr's. AN IRON DEVIL.

Senator Mitchell stated, while J personally he was in favor of free coinage J of silver, he believed tin* measure (the bullion redemption clause having been omitted) to be free from any vicious principle, and one that if adopted would ultimately lead to free coinage. In this Senator Teller agreed. SORROWING SENATORS. of the Late prohibit particular property from en- i pestilence and pauperism are not subjects of commerce, although sometimes among its attendant evils. They are not things to be regulated and trafficked in. but lo be prevented, as far as human foresight or human means can guard against them. But spirits aud distilled liquors are universally admitted to bo subjects of ownership and property, and are therefore subjects of exchange, barter, and traffic, like any other commodity in which a right of property exists. And congress under its general power to regulate commerce with foreign nations, may prescribe what article of merchandise shall be admitted and what excluded: and may therefore admit, or not, as it shall deem best. the importation of ardent spirits. And inasmuch as the laws of congress authorize their importation, no state has a right to prohibit their introduction. * * * These state laws act altogether upon the retail or domestic traffic within their respective borders. They act upon the article after it has passed the line of foreign commerce, and becomes a port of the general mass of property in the state. These laws may, indeed, discourage imports, and diminish the price which ardent spirits would otherwise bring. But although the state is bound to receive and permit the sale by the importer of any article of mer-j ehandisc which congress authorizes to be imported, it is not bound to furnish a market for it. nor to abstain from the passage of any law which it may deem necessary or advisable to guard the health or morals of its citizens, although such law may discourage importation or diminish the profits of the importer, 'or lessen the revenue of the general government. And if any state deems the retail and in- j ternal traffic iii ardent spirits injurious ' to its citizens and calculated to produce 1 idleness, vice or debauchery, I see nothing in the constitution of the United States to prevent it from regulating and restraining the traffic, or from prohibiting it altogether if it thinks proper." The New Hampshire ease, the chief justice observed, differs from Brown vs. Maryland, in that the latter was a case arising out of commerce with foreign nations, which congress had regulated by law; whereas, the case in hand was one of commerce between two states, in relation to which congress had not exercised its power. “But the law of New Hampshire acts directly upon aii^ import from one state to another.* while in Unhands of the importer for sale, and is therefore a regulation of commerce, acting upon the article while it is within the admitted jurisdiction of the general gov trance into the state, that the power of regulating commerce among the states was conferred upon tlie federal government. “If iii the present case," said Mr. Justice Matthews, “the law of lowaoperated upon all merchandise sought to be brought from another state into its limits, there could be no doubt that it would be a regulation of commerce among the states.” and he concludes that this must be so, though it applies only to one class of articles of a particular kind. Tin* legislation of congress on the subject of interstate commerce by means of railroads, designed to remove trammels upon transportation between different states, and upon tin’ subject of transportation of passengers and merchandise. Revised Statutes, sections 4,252to4.289, inclusive, including the transportation of nitroglycerine and other similar explosive substances, with the proviso that, as to them, “any state, territory, district, city or town within the United States" should not be prevented by the language used “from regulating or from prohibiting the traffic or transportation of those substances between persons or places lying or being within their respective territorial limits, or from prohibiting the introduction thereof into such limits for sale, use. or consumption therein,'' i> referred j to an indicative, of the intention of eon- * gress that the transportation of commodities between the states "hall be free, except where it is positively restricted by congress itself, or by states in particular cited by the express permission of congress. it is said that the law in question was not an inspection law, the object of which “is to improve the quality of articles produced by the labor of a country, to fit them for exportation: or, it may be. for domestic use:” Gibbons vs. Ogden. 9 Wheat. 1,203: Turner vs. Maryland. 107 U.

Articles in such a condition as tend to spread disease or not merchantable, are not legitimate subjects of trade and commerce, and the self-protecting power of each state, therefore, may be rightfully exerted against their introduction, and such exercise of power cannot be considered a regulation of commem' prohibited by the constitution; and the observation of Mr. Justice Catron, in the License Cases, 5 How. 504, 599. are quoted to the effect that what does not 1 Services Over the Remain' Senator Heck. *    \\    ashingtox.    May 6.—The remains of i James Ii.

An Especial!)' Murderous Locomotive on i the East Tennessee Railroad. j There is a particularly vicious engine j I on the East Tennessee road. i It has killed twenty-seven men, and J i engineers and firemen feel a superstitious ; dread whenever they have to take a rim j on the rails with this man killer, j “I sometimes feel.” said a grizzled old j stoker a few days ago, “that there is a j murderous spirit in that engine. She : killed two men before she got. on the i rails. While she was being steamed up I in the shops a plug blew out, and two I mechanics were scalded to death. Then ; it was brought south ami sent out on its j first run. She mounted the rails anil i plunged down an embankment, killing ! her engineer and fireman. “Soon afterwards she was fixed up j and put on the road again. She ran for ' a while all right, until one night the en-! gineer that w*as driving her saw a liead-: light bearing down on him and tried to ; reverse the lever ami run back; bur the I engine acted like a mule and wouldn't i answer to thp throttle. She went whirl-j ing on and crashed into tho other train. Five men w’ere killed in the two engine boxes. “But I can’t remember half the deviltry that engine has played. Once she seemed to get into the dumps while on the road and just wouldn't be managed. She acted as if the devil was in her cylinders. Whenever the engineer pulled open the throttle she would storm dew ii the track like a heil cat. and it was like stopping a bucking bronco to get her down to a quiet pace. “An emigrant train was running ahead, and the engineer of the man killer had orders to look out for it. After a run of an hour or so he came in sight of tho emigrant train as it rumbled slowly up a heavy grade; then it disappeared over the crest and this devil of an engine went charging up and over about a minute behind. The engineer expected to see the emigrants away down the track, but they had slowed up and were only a few hundred yards ahead. Down went the engine bellowing like mad, and as soon as the emigrants heard it, out they steamed as fast as they could. But the old hell cat eouUl outrun the Flying Dutchman, and there was no stopping her. She rushed down, eating up the space between her and lier prey. Eager faces were looking out the windows of the passenger car ahead, and the engineer, fireman and coaler, when they found that they could not check the speed of the engine, stood at the doors ready for a leap. “They had to tak' it pretty soon. Already tile emigrants were leaping from the steps and rolling down the sides of the embankment. The engiuemen waited till the last moment before tile crash, and leaped for life—but were all killed. “I am afraid to say how many lives were lost as the engine tore into that train packed with emigrants, but it swelled the list of the men that the old brute had killed. “No matter what road she is on—and she has been on a great many—she has kept on killing the men who stood at ber throttle. We all feel a Iii tie nervous when we have to run her, tor when you steam her up it seems to put the devil in The reich stag was emperor in person. lie th.roue his majesty mid be practicable at to sovo important and which would come up lie wanted above all t further legislation for the workingmen.

And it would be only another step to regulate real or supposed extravagance in food and clothing." And Mr. Justice Mathews thus proceeds. “For the purpose of protecting its people against the evils of intemperenee it has the right to prohibit the manufacture within its limits of intoxicating liquors; it mav aj>>0 prohibit all domestic commerce in them between its own inhabitants, whether Pears’ soap secures a beautiful oompimrtQa+j flmmerce among the states as to foreign * regulation. Tho question, therefore I brought up for decision is.'whether a state is prohibited by the constitution of the United States from making any regulations of foreign commerce, or of commerce with another state, although such regulation is confined to its own territory, and made for its own convenience or interest, and does not come in conflict with any law of congress. In other words, whether the grant of power to congress is of itself a prohibition to the states, aud renders all state laws upon the subject null and void.” He declares it to appear to him very clear “that the mere grant of power to the general government cannot, upon any just principle* of construction, be construed to be an absolute prohibition to the exercise of any power over the same subject by the states. The controlling and supreme power over commerce with foreign nations and the several "tales is undoubtedly conferred upon congress. Yet, in my judgment, the state may. nevertheless. for the safety or convenience of trade, or for the protection of the health Disability Pension Rill Considered. ^ a "in N’< r ton.

In reference to vour article, “What I Would Do if I Were Rich?” I would build in the suburbs of large cities cheap, Kubstantial dwellings, which I would dispose of to the j>oor at a small rent a month, the rent to go towards the purchase of the house, and in each house I would place a bath room, a luxury not now enjoyed by the p*x>ror classes, but very necessary. Erecting a large number of houses would minimize the expense. I would, in the large cities where* available, build a bath which might be used at a nominal cost by the poor. As it is now, the workingman's family is obliged to do without this “luxury.” The person who has a claim to modesty cannot in tile cramped quarters occupied by the poor, enjoy this health preserver.
