Poor, proprietor of the Nebraska Stnam Laun-diy, was found by his wife at an early hour in the morning lying partly out of the window with a bullet hole in his forehead. From circumstances it is evident that a burglar had succeeded in scaling the veranda and was at the window when Mr. Poor heard him. There are footprints in the grass below and an imiirint of a stockinged foot in the dust of the im root'. Mr. Poor is pn'smned to have risen from his bud, secared his revolver from the clock in the hall, and gone to tho window, not Iniowing tho burglar was so near. Looking out to see what was joing on, it is likely that the thief, see-ng his wciipon, turned upon him and killed him from tho roof. There is not the slighest clue as to the identity of the perpetrator of the crime. Mrs. f�,>i,r'K StatiMiient. Mrs. Poor's stafa^tnont of tV.e tragedy, told between her aobs, wiis that while lying in her bed to the east and across the hall from the r.wm occupied by Mr. Poor, slie heard a sound as of a sudden slamming of the window blind. She lay still for a moment and then called to hor husband, but received no response. Renewed calls encountered like silence, and hurrying from her bed Mrs. Poor stepped across the liall into tho room where her husband usually slept with their elder little boy, Robbie. A lamp turned low revealed the figure of Mr. Poor leaning out of the v/indow. She spoke to him again, and his continued silence caused her to seize him by tho shoulder, when sh'e discovered his condition.       _ an AAVFUt UKATir.

The Chicago WaltbiH. Chicago, May 19.-The threatened "tie-up" of the big hotels by the waiters may occur to-day, affecting the Palmer, Grand Pacific, Tremont, Briggs, Commercial, Southern, Woodnaffi and Columbia. A member of the executive committee of the culinary alliance said a general movement on all these hotels would be made this afternoon.

May 19.-The Osborn hotel, this city, caught fii-e and partly consumed at 1 o'clock in the � ig.   The hotel was but recently i for the summer sqason and-is ^ the loi-gest in v the.' townV-  The a( of the fire is unknown, but it is ,jsed to be incendiary.  There ; were' fy; inmates, but all  escaped ruii-' led; : The house will be immediately It, A Ilurning Shalt at 8haniokin, I'a.-Destructive Explosions roared. Shamokin, May 19.-The Neilson shaft is on flre,having caught from the burning timbers of the breaker which was destroyed last Friday night. The lower levels are filled with gas. Twenty-five mules at tlie bottom are dead and nineteen Qn the top levels will probably be suffocated. At 10 p. m. the fire in the Neilson shaft had assumed a serious aspect. The fire is known to be in No. 12 vein at a depth of 1,000 feet, but its extent cannot be determined upon, as no one can visit that level and return alive. Smoke and foul air was noticed issuing from the air course of No. 13 level at 4 p. m. The breaker fire Saturday destroyed the boilers and one fan. Sunday steam facilities were obtained and a fan started to ventilate the mine, but it failed to drive out the gas iii the upper level. The mine is making gas fast, and serious explosions -will occur if it reaches the fire. It was decided to turn the Carbon run creek into the shaft and drown out tho fire. It will take thirty-six ho'.ivs to turn the creek, and if the fire is in the locality which the mine foreman thinks it is it will bo tree or four days before the m'ater will reach the fire. Tlie gas and fire are so dangerous that every precaution is being taken to prevent loss of life.        _ HLAlNE-nAMKCSCII. Tho Crowning Event of a IJrilliniit .Social .Season at tlie Capita). Washington, May 10.-Margaret Isabella Blaine, oldest daughter of the secretary of state, was married at 1 o'clock at the re.sidence of her father in this city to Walter Damrosch of New York. The affair was the crowning event of a brilliant social season, rendered the more interesting from the privacy which surrounded it. Owing to the comparative recent death of the bride's sister, Mrs. Coppinger, and later of her brother, �Walker Blaine, it was the wish of Mr. Blains that the marriage be strictly private. The official position of Mr. Blaine rendered it impossible to maintain this strict privacy, especially as Mr. Damrosch was anxious the German minister should be present, so invitations were extended to all members of the diplomatic corps and a few personal friends of the Blaine and Damrosch families. The presents received were very handsome and costly. . It is said that the spoons alone would fill a bushel basket, and there have been sixty dozen forks received. The jewels and personal ornaments represent every variety of jewelers' art, and there are tables full of bric-a brae and rare paintings. OKlGINAt FACKAGCS. Beer Is Sold in Spite of the Law-Whisky to Follow. TOPEKA, Kan., May 19.-For the first time in five years intoxicating liquors are being sold openly in Topeka. Charles Bahrer, agent for a leading Kansas City wholesale liquor house, opened up an "original package" shop at No. 417 Kansas avenue, the principal street of the city. His stock consists of a car-load of beer, in cases containing twenty-four bottles each. Before evening the entire stock had been disposed of. Nothing less than a case was sold in any mstauce. The unusual sight of the open sale of intoxicants attracted many people to the "original package" shop, and the sidewalk in front of the place was crowded all day by those' who were curious to see how it was done. Rahrer says he has no fear of the state law, and will hereafter deal in original packages of whisky and wine as well as beer. Attorney and Bccelver Got All. iNDLiNAPOLis, Lid., May 19.-The United Order of Honor, whose affairs have been in the hands of Receiver Bradley for some months, was completely wiped out Saturday when the receiver submitted his report. He showed that there were debts aggi-egating $50,000, but he was only able to collect $1,190 all told. The committee allowed the at-toi-ney in the case $500 and the receiver the remainder. After paying the court expenses the creditors get nothing. The order was once in a very flourishing condition. The McKeusport Strike.
