Oct. magnificent Leland Hotel, the moat modern and the finest appointed hotel in Central New York, is to-day noth- ing but a mass of smouldering ruins. At this morning the fire was first discovered in the region of the kitchen on the second floor, and in- side of fifteen minutes the building was in flumes from end to end, and before thirty minutes had elapsed the walls had fallen, with the exception of the northern corner. The n hole structure was one seeth- ing furnace, to which was added the horror that many lives were involved. At first it was feared the loss of life was about thirty, but as the night wore along the number of missing and dead was reduced to seven or eight. When the flames began fo sweep through the hotel, Night Clerk Jones set the automatic fire alarm bell to ringing, and before tho rudely awak- ened guests could realize what was the matter, the flames and smoke rushed through the halls, cutting off the usual means of exit. Each room was provided with n. common rope fire escape, and by means of these many lives were waved. The burning hotel, viewed from the street, presented a scene which never will be forgotten. At many windows of tho nine stories of the burning building could be seen men and women piteously calling for help, or making their escape by means of tho rope ap- pliances. At n window in the fifth story a man and a woman were seen apparently struggling in each others arms. The woman evidently wanted to throw herself out of the window. Below them was a sea of flames, and soon after they were lost to view. On the fifth story, toward the Fay- ette street side, four women appeared at a window, and their screams for help were heard above the din and roar. The firemen shouted, "Stay whero you are." A hook and ladder were put in posi- tion and the evils of overhead wires were again demonstrated, as the wires were in the way and prevented the raising of the ladder. Minutes seemed hours while one of the ladder men mounted the rounds and cut the wires. Among the frightened women at the windows was Annie Cummings, one of the servants. Her companions tried to persuade her from jumping headlong into the street. While the laddermen were at work hoisting the ladder, willing hands had hold of a jumping net. Miss Cuimniugs jumped with the evident intention of landing on the net, but missed it and was dashed to death. On all sides men and women could bo seen dropping fmrn the windows or slidiug down the fire escapes. By the side of the building at one time lay seven persons, unconscious and in- jured. tho actress, when into a gentleman's "For God's-sake, let her down by a rope, and she escaped with only lacer- ated hands, saving all her valuables. The other members of her company also had a narrow escape. The missing are Mary Doyle, a serv- ant; Robert Mills of New York, A. J. Van Houteu of Jersey City, and George Wood of Dexter, N. Y. The following is the list of dead as far as known: Annie Cummings, jumped from the fifth floor, instantly killed; Win. E. Harrot of Elizabeth, N. J., lowered himself by a half way down from the fourth floor the rope was burned oil' and he fell to the ground and died at 4 A. M. iiose Schwartz, hotel domestic, jumped from the fifth floor and died from the shock and internal injuries at 8 A. M. an unkuown woman, hotel domestic, jumped from the fifth floor and was instantly killed. The loss on the Leland Hotel ex. ceeds The hotel cost The furniture was all destroyed. Considerable loss was sustained by the American Express Company iu its building adjoining the hotel. The individual inmates of the hotel lost heavily in personal effects. I discount. Cora Tanner, aroused, rushed room, and cried: save He A Clever Capture. By Associated Press. 1 CHICAGO, Oct. of the most desperate criminals known to the Pacific Slope were captured in Chicago to-night by James Hume, chief spe- cial office of Wells, Fargo Co. The captive desperadoes are Charles H. Thome, alias Doreey, and George H. Shinn. Their last exploit in Califor- nia was a daring escape from the State Prison at San Quentin. Thome was serving a life sentence for murder and robbery, and Shinn was in durance for holding up an entire railway train. Special officer Hume's clues led him to believe that the pair had drifted to Chicago, and with the assistance of local officers they were located here. To-night at an opportune moment, Hume quietly nabbed the astonished fugitives, taking them separately, and under precautions by the Chicago au- thorities that made resistance or escape impossible. Thorne and Shinn appeared to have no particular occu- pation in Chicago, but are not known to have participated in any crime here. They will be conveyed back to their old abode in San Quentin Prison at once. A Cowardly Assassination. By Associated Press. T NEW YORK, Oct. Hen- nessy died at the hospital at 9 o'clock this morning. The tragedy is one of which the Chief and his most Inti- mate friends have regarded as within he range of probability for some years, and for two or three years he has been accompanied by some trusted friend on his way home. Last night lie walked to the door of his residence, and pausing a moment to draw the atchkey from his pocket, turned into :he doorway. It was while in this with his side turned towards he assassins, that the first two shots were fired. The weapons wore double- barreled shotguns, one barrel of each being fired at the same time, and as quickly as the ambushed men could cock their guns the second barrel was fired. The Chief drew his revolver and returned the fire, but the assassins escaped before the police arrived, and it is not known whether he hit any of them or not. _______ A Train Kohbery. By Associated Press.] KANSAS CITY, Oct. bold train robbery occurred near this city last night. The Omaha express on the Missouri Pacific, -which leaves at o'clock, was stopped at the State Line station, a short distance from the Union depot. Three men without masks entered the first chair car, pretending'to be news agents selling papers. They covered the passengers with revolvers, compelling them to hand over their valuables, and then making their escape as the train was leaving the station. There were six passengers in the car, but it is impossible to say how much the robbers succeeded in getting. The road officials say only one man was robbed; that he was standing on the platform and the robbers relieved him of but it is generally believed they got more. .Pnneral of the liate G Belknap.

Brother- hood of Locomotive Engineers held a short session this morning, but as the Committee on Organization was not ready to report, no important business was transacted. An afternoon open meeting was held, at which addresses were delivered by Grand Chief Arthur, Chauncey M. Depew and others. To the YOUBK Men's Republican Club and Younff Men of Keno. No party or movement was ever successful that was not thoroughly and systematically organized. The more thorough, and systematic the organization the greater its succeen. We should all realize the full import of this propositionx and lend all our talents and our energies to the success of our club, which will be the most thorough, telling and effective politi- cal movement ever inaugurated in Washoe county. We should feel the responsibility that rests upon us, and as young men and true citizens, who desire good government, the prosperity and continued development of the State, labor earnestly for the success of the entire ticket. The party to which we have the honor of belonging is one whose, history is interwoven with the prosperity of our nation and whose present and future policy means the perpetuation of the Union. We feel reasonably certain of success in November, but'in view of the fact that the present Administration hai. given us new life by its favorable leg- islation on silver, and has accorded us fair consideration in matters of inter- nal improvement, let us pile up a rousing majority for the entire ticket as a mark of esteem and gratitude to the grand old party and demonstrate to them that we have eutire confidence in that party which has done so much for us. Tho members of the club are re quested to assemble in the Justice (Jourt rooms at o'clock to-night, as we have matters of importance to consider. Let every member be pres- ent. We extend a cordial invitation to all young men in Reno under the age of 25, who desire good government and tho upbuilding of Nevada, to bign his name to the roll, and hand in band with the veterans of the parly march to the polls on November and by an honest vote continue the Republican party in power, and by an honest vote place the stamp of con- demnation upon a willful obstructive Democracy, whose verv name is syn- onymous with corruption and retro- resMon.
