Jt was caused by an ac- cumulation ol' natural gas in the cellar. Tho gas became ignited m some unknown manner and exploded with terriiic force, wrecking the building and tilling the air with debris, Mrs. Harriot was blown out of the house and a limn immed fioulduig, ho wus standing near structure, was blown across the 5. Harriot was carried across the street and into the residence of William James, a bookkeeper for the flnn of (Jlock Beck. Dr. WisMiiger, a prominent physician, was called to attend her mjunss. The house whei e the injured lady lay soon crowded with jieople attracted by tho accident, and it was necessary to close the dixirs that no more might entci. Little knew those scores of spectators huddled areund tho sufferer that they were standing on a death trap, which was then on the verge of currying them into eternity. A TKRIUBLB UPHEAVAL. Suddenly the air was rent by a thunderous explosion which mado the earth quake and filled the air with flying timbers, bricks and debris of all kinds. Darkness ensued and tl on a death-like stillness reigned for a few moments. It broken by shrieks and death groans. Tho house in which lay the powerless form of Mi's.

They ran over and injured scores of A little baby was knocked from its mother's arm, and falling beneath the merciless wiieuls of the vehicle was, crushed to duatn. OUT THE VICTIMS. Ah soon ns the maddened steeds had disap- peared m tho darkness many of tho specta- tors and firomen wLo Lad been uninjured by either of the explosions turned their atten- tion to digging out the persons buried be- neath the ruins of the house Guided by the cries arid moans of the mangled anil dying, men groped in tha darkness, pulling out a dead body hern, a mangled, yet living, foi'm there, aud conveying them to resting places. Oroups of men, women and children gathered around the prostrate forms, and blood-curd- ling shrieks made the awt'ul scene more re- volting, as friends recognized friends injured or dead, parents found their mutilated chil- dren and vice versa. It required several hours to remove all the dead and injured from the ruins, and it is not yet known who or how many are the victims. NAMES OF KILLED AND INJURED.

WEEKLY REVIEW Cf TRADE. Rutlurag Picking Cp In Many Directions. Cold Weather Welcomed. KKW YORK, Jaa R. G. Dun ft Cc.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: "Business baq a Jec-idedJy favorable appearance. Colder weather has brought a general increase of activity and improvement n collections. Heavy disbursements by the .reasury for bonds have brought easier money markets, and several troublesome labor con- troversies have been adjusted. The prevail- ing sickness, though wriouBlT Interrupting trade and industry in many quarters, is dis- tinctly abating ut the Speculation IK restricted and moderate in volume, while the payments through banks show a steady increase over last year's nxvrd, compara- tively small at the chief cities, but oxi-ceding 1'J per cent at other points. A OHATIFYIBO RErORT. "Tlie offi.'ial statement of the iron and steel -srwiation is particularly gratifying, it shows that, coutrary to the imiiren- -.1011, the unsold iti hamta of malcei-R and the warrant did not increase riiiK but actually decreaxed KvWO tons. The piuluction was tons, m tho previous year. Add- ing the total of pig iron iii tins ccmntrv will probably prove to have been about 7, in A gain ol more than a million tons in a yt'nr OVIT tho largest iviiMumption evor pre- viously known fairly explains advancing jinres in the fare of unpi'ocedented proJuu- tiou. "The production In Hreat Britain wa? Inns, mid thn consumptinn, after al- lowance for about HOO.WK) tons docroase in stocks nnd 1 tons pxported, waa about tons The American nuirket this neck, however, shows some signs of weak- neHS. The recent production, it is to be nieniliered, hns bixjn at the rate of nearly tons, and the Philadelphia market for pig is more irregular, with some oilers of No. I at S1H.50. linr iron H dull and less tirm; plates and nails are dull, and while two Pennsylvania mills have marked up steel rails to others still sell at Sales for have been tons, anil last year's shipments frnm mills were against in IHsa IMI'HOVICZirENT IN THE WOOL "The woolen business has been a little Im- proved for all grades the colder weather, and is fairly active for cheaper cashmeres and worsteds, with some gain in hearier woolens. But sales are still narrow and cautious; and concessions arc noted in territory wool at Boston, where total sales were but pounds. Better orders for spring clothing Hrp observed at 1'hiladelpliia, but in general the trade needs genuine and prolonged winter weathor. DISTURBANCE IN "Cotton goods move fairly active nt firm pricos, hut the rise in material begins to cause some disturbance. The speculation in cotton has marked up the price half a cent, wilh Bales for the week of bales, and recfiptH for the week slightly fall behind, while exixtrts slightly exceed last year's. The and shoe trade is rather better and onlei-s for several months ahead are reported at Boston, isith more buying of leather while hides remain low and show no improvement. The trade ill ruWwr goods is moderate. Lumber and building mnterials are in steady iteniHiul. The coal trado is made more cheer- ful by cold weather, but the unprecedented accumulation of stock will probably forca another suspension of production, as storage is exhaused, and cars out of in the business are said to be on side tracks Ion-led. "In tho minor metals no material change ia though copper and tin aro a shade lower. MISf ELLANEOTTH BIEPORTS. "The grain speculation halts and with aales of only bushels, wheat is three- lower, with corn an eighth lower for tho week at H8 cents, the sales having been bushels. Oats have risen cents, anil pork products are a little stronger, while oil has advanced a cent. Raw sugar is un- changed, but crubhed an eighth lower. Ex- cept in cotton, the speculative markets show no unhealthy activity, though money here has been decidedly easier. The largo bond pur- chases of last week explain the decrease of in cash held by the treasury and the rate for money on call has declined to per cent. Foreign exchange is also a sharle lower at and increasing gold re- serves at the banks of England and France give move confidence. In foreign trade, also, some improvement is observed in exports at New York, which fall only 6 per oent. below last year's for January thus far, while tke de- crease in imports is 17 per cent But the ex- ports of wheat have been decidedly small since tho recent rise, and flour shipments are hght, while even corn exports appear to fall behind those of last year. IU INTERIOR OITISS. "Reports from other cities aro generally more satisfactory this week, though St. Louis iinds the weather and the prevailing sickness a drawlwck an J delay in delivering manufactured gixnis, on account of sickness imong hands, causes complaint at the East, But most reports note improvement in the weather and in trade, and at Chicago grain receipts double last year's and there are nnd provisions. At Pittsburp mills arc busy niul higher prices are expected. "Money is iu ample supply at Chicago, but stringc-ut at St. Puul. There is much complaint of tardy collections nnd especial improvement is noted at Kansas C'ty and Detroit, but tardiness is still seen in pitpcr and shoe trades at Philadelphia Tho general improvement is reflected in higher prices for stocks, which have advanced during the week nearly half a dollar per share, and railroad traffic and earnings con- tinue to show large gains over last year, Business failures during the last seven days number for the United States 295, for Canada 43, total SIS, compared with 388 last week. For the corresponding week last year the were 310." Attempted Murder and Suicide. CANANDAKJUA, N. Y., Jon.

Mr. Carlisle of KViiturky thought that the amendment did not sti iko at the fraudulent importer, but at the honest inlpoi-U'r. A fraudulent importer wanted to go into court. The amemlm.-nt was an indirect pro- vision that no honest goodh should be allowed to appeal to Hie courts for the cor- rection of any wrong. Jwiiu; to tho crowded dockets of the courts a decision in an case might not bo rendered for three or four years. If, in the meantime, the goods wore required to be kept in bond it would work a hardship on the importer. The remedy was for congress to make tho statutes plain and simple, so that the officers of tho government might have no didiculty m construing them and the courts might bo nmru diligent in the trial of import Mr. Lafollete of Wisconsin, offered an amendment to the umun.lmeut providing that perishable goals may be withdrawn pending litigation. Thi, was agi-eed to, but the Bayne amendment as amended was de- feated. Mr. Breckenridgo of Kentucky substituted an amendment the effect of which is to give thocireuit court the right to determine ques- tions of fact us well as questions at law, and pleaded for the right of every citizen to have his case tried before a jury of his peers. Mr. Cbipman of Michigan favored this amendment, but after further discussion the amendment was rejected. Mr. Carlisle offered a substitute for tha whole section, proposing to allow the courts to determine questions of fact as well as law. This was reje-jted. Some further progress was made with the bill, when the committee rose and the house at adjourned, Br. Petera Imported A 11 re. ZAN-ZIBAK, Jan.
