When the firemen arrived they imickly ex- tinguished the lire and rtoi-nnd those of tho inmates who had managed, by hanging out of windows or taking reloge "on the roof, to the deadly smolce and flame. Tho shrieks and prayers of the ten illed people vveie mingled with the cries and groans of tho injured, ami the scen'j was a terrible one In a few minutes, limve.-or, th.j inipnsoned people had been taken donu the ladders, the injured removed to bo-pdai-, and the dead to the station house.

THE SPEAKER EXPLAINS MR REED PUBLISHES A DEFENSE OF HIS RULINGS. He Descants on the Pernicious Interfer of the Democratic CnrllHleN Derisions Clteil KK Precede I'rosnim of the IllHlne's Kldest WASJIIUCTOV, Feb. Reed Ins night made the following statement in de- fense of his rulings on the question of a cpiorum: "Mr. Carlisle was entirely right when he said in substance thit the decision of the house that fi quorum was constituted to d, business when a majority of the house wa. present, would change from the foundatioi the method of doing busine-w. We cerlainl' will do so. for it will enable the elected by the people to rule by their owi votes, and not by tho suirerunee of the ma joritv. "The rule of the majority is at the vorj has) ot our government. If it be not the tim niloonrjaithisvuiu nnd we arc yet m oui Look at practical working of till other doctrine. Tlie Republicans haven ma jority of seven, but they have only thri-eovei a Ills is our number-llio is a ipionim. If we are to furnish a quorum, the whole Democratic! paity silting idly by h Vheir scuts, but not present, dumb and silen w hen business is to b'j transacted, but voeu when it is to be obstructed, then there can be but three Republicans absent on penalty o: stoppage of the public business. NO OHA.VCK TO no Birsi.Nnss. "Now let us see how that works. We ure al lowed but three absentees. Mr. Rockwell is sick. It would endanger his life to como Mr. T. M. Browne is too sick to be able to be lisre all the time. Mr. Caswell's wife was dy- ing and common (fecency required hi.s pres- ence by her bedside. Another member must be with his wife for urgent reasons somewhat similar. Just about this number of members will at all times lie sick or incapacitated These may get well, but others full sick in their turn. There, thi-n, is our quorum, ae- mnling to Mr. ('arlisle's idea, gono entirely to pieces, though even after all fraud be de- ilucted, tlie pc-ople bail found .for the Repub- oans by seven majority. All this time, while wo ere keeping in the house other men hardly less sirk, 140 lusty Democrats sit silent in then seati, doing no public, duty except to draw their pay. Is it possible that the United -States is paying those gentlemen a day without even the privilege- of counting tutir bib-lit PBEfKDENTS FOR THE ItULINU. "ilr. Carlisle says there is no precedent for the decision ot the houso. A hundred times I have heuid him declanj that the nmnlwrfor und against such a bill was, say eighty foi and twenty against, mathematically less than u quorum, and yet declare the bill and then sign that bill, thereby certifying under the most sanction of hi.s oath of office that the bill had properly and constitution- ally passed the house. How could he have done this if his doctrine be true that a quo- rum must vote! Understand me. Day after day Mr. Carlisle in my presence has declared that such a bill had votes for and ngainst, by hk own count as speaker, less than a quorum and has yet immediately declared it passed and has signed furnishing the only proof the president could Imvo that it was passed. How could this bo, except on the plain ground that if a quorum did not vote, the presence of a quorum was enough) But this matter does not need argument. In Mr. Carlisle's own state, in Democratic Tennes- see, in Democratic New York, in Democratic Ohio, in Massachusetts, and in the courts everywhere, as you may see by Mr. Butter- worth's the doctrine just upheld by the houso is the law of tho land. And it ought to be if good government is not to perish, from the face of the earth. WASTI.VG THE PEOPLE'S TIME. "Not n ruling has been made in the house to suppress filibustering, which has not the full sanction of parliamentary law. That men should resist only shows how ingrained the wrong course bus become and how necessary the remedy. What is tlie house trying to do! Why, to perform its highest function, that of deciding the right of a member to his seat Lntil INSa no man dared to filibuster against such n case No man ought to be allowed to do it to-day. Yet every flay three hours are wasted in approving the journal when five minutes would be ample. These three hours belong to the public business. The people do not understand that every wanton roll call consumes three-quarters of an hour. "Some of these men are talking about rules. They are now acting under u body of rules which the American people use in their as- semblies, a body of rales well known and un- derstood by all those who are not wilfully ignorant. When wo first came hero the ob- structionists declared that they would die in the last ditch against any rules they did not approve of, and now they are waiting to die at Thermopylae m defense of the liberties of ther ci mitiy lie-cause we don't force rules on th-'Jii. If Uiciv could fewer deaths at Th.TiiiopvI .L: ami in the house 'licTOunlry uotilil IK- bettor off. It is true that th- Democratic leaders like Mr. Carlisle to participate in the ilef nice or m, government, but they should now nij.ke th 'mselves heard affirmatively ou the side of order." THE WEEK'S PROGRAM. Tho lilulr Ktlucntlonnl Bill on the Docket. The House Squabble. WAHHIXOTON, Feb senate hns set today for the consideration of ttie Blair educational bill. It comes up at '_> o'clock as the unfluishod business of the senate, and it will continue to come up at a o'clock each day until it is disposed of. Its pas-age is a foregone conclusion, but it may denated at some length and its considera- tion may eat up two or three afternoons. A decision is exacted from the supreme (fcirt of the L'nited States to-day in the suit involving the validity of the Idaho test oath In event, this decision is rendered the com- mittee on territories may dispose of the bill for the admission of Idaho at its meeting to- day, .Senator Flatt, the chairman of the committee, has, however, more urgent mat- ters to bring before the senate. Tho secre- tary of the interior, in an interview with him lust Friday, laid before the senate the neces- sity of pushing to a passage the bill already reported from the committee providing a temporary government for Oklahoma. Sen- ator Flatt will have the senate consider this motion at an early day. The customs administration bill, known as the McKmley lull, will be reported to the finance committee to-morrow by tho sub- coinmittt-e. Senators Allison, Aldrich and McPuerson, aud will doubtless be reported to the senate the same day. A number of amendments will be suggested, and when the senate pastes the measure it will be thrown into conference where it will stay for some days. The discussion of Senator Butler's bill to assist tho emigration of the negro from southern states may be resumed in some form or other. The senator from South Carolina himself may make a brief speech explaining the character of the measura luriher, as believes it has been seriously by some of the spr-akera who have discussed it in the senate. lu the secret si-usion the nominations of Tii- dian Commissioner Morgan und (he tendent of Indian schools, Dr. Dorchester are still waiting consideration. It is U-lioved that much of the delay in consulernlion m these cases is due to the fear that if they wem brought up ut (his tune they would bo" acted ujxm adversely. So they may not be consid- ered during the coining week. An effort will IK made, however, to obtjiiu time for the consideration of the Sumoun treat v winch ii now pending, Senator Hiscock's conmntti-e on quuilri-centenmal will probably meet dur- ing the week, but no report is from it immediately, DKMOl-KATS WILL KIQIIT HARD.

It is tin) pur- pose of the majority members ot the elections committee to n-jxirt the Atkinson-Pendleton contested case us soon as (he Smith-Jackson case is disposed of. The committee has heard the evidence in the case, but has had no meeting todecido on itsdKposal. the agreement entered into by the members of the eoiuiiiitte this case vvoul.l como up bo- fore tho committee on Tuesduv. Feb hut the majority memlx-rs havo decided to cull a meeting and take a vote on the matter so that the case can lx> reported to HIM house im- mediately after the Smith-.Iacks-in case is gotten out, of the way. With the addition of Mr. Smith to the llepublican ranks tho major- ity would IH.- quite cei tain of always having a quorum ou hand to dispose of the other cases. Tho Smith-Jackson case will taken up to- day if possible. Mr. Jackson will bo unseated and then the Atkinsun-l'ondli'ton case will bo called up. TliM Democrats intend to continue the tight, to the last and they will use every strategy to delay action. Ijiltle is known concerning other business that ina> como before the house. As it is there is slight prospectof the enactment, of any legislation for the pi esent. The members of the world's fair committal are undecided n.s to what shall be done with the general bill they have under consul .ration. Koine mem- bers of tlie committee aie in favor of letting the bill over until ihe new rules are adop- ted, w hilo ol hers ure anxious to break in at any time and dispose of the bill without long delate. Mr. Hitt ol Illinois favors tho bitter plan. Ho thinks that the bill can be. disposed of within an hour. The committee on territories will probably rejwrt the Oklahoma bill during the week and sjiee'ly action on it. HE DOESN'T LIKE INGALLS. A from n Southern Man that Miule tin, Soitutor Smilu. WASHINUTOX, Feb. Senator In- galls' mail is always large, requiring the ser- vices of two typcM riter ojn-rutors continually, since lu, cplelnated question sp.i-ch it has necessary to bring it to his com- mittee room in a sack, the morning mail bringing about letters and the other four mails adding about more. The senator goes carefully over his entire mail single- handed and disposes of it each day. Con- gratulations IKIUI- in on him. From all quar- ters of the country ho has received hundreds of letters from ministers, some of whom have said that they intended to preach on the sub- ject, using his subject as a text. Many of the great edncatora and deep-thinkers of the land have also expressed their favorable sen- timents. A number of the senator's con- gratulations havo come from the South. One missive received consisted of simply a blank piece of paper inclosing a card bearing on one side a Confederate flag and on tho other the inscription "Bah." The follow ing letter, written on a business firm's letterhead, reached the senator Saturday: V.aaiL. Ga Jan. 30, 1630. United States Senator In .-alls: We wou.d pay towarla burning rrt-rr newspaper and their editors that publish your fool speeches, thtin we pay a cents to carry this to you You are certainly the most cursed hell-bent fool on earth, and how a crowd can waste the time listening to you can be ue- couuted for only that they are -'U.

You are lucky thatyou find fools to tolerate you. That the devil is crowded with sueh as you is evident or he vvouid have taken you alive. Yours truly, B. NIBI.ACK Co. Tbe senator had a hearty laugh over this letter and turning to his clerk said: "Well, send them a pamphlet copy of the speech, although it is very likely the writer cannot read." MRS. COPPINGER DEAD.

The men met n front of Jfo. 117 Thompson street and after few woods hud been exchanged, Cuecio shot and throwing the pistol down valkeil away. Ho was captured n few min- utes later. While an officer was taking him x> the station house, a mob of Sylvester's riends surrounded tho murderer nnd tried tx> ynch him. A detachment of police came up and drove the excited Italians back, but not mtil Cuecio had been struck with fists and 'lubs by several of the mob, and when he ar- rived at the station he wa-s bloody and bruised and nearly dead from fright. A colored boy vho was the only witnoss of the tragedy says hat Sylvestnr was laughing at something he lad said to Cuecio wheu the latter shot him. Sylvester was known as a great joker and t is supjiosed that some joke that he had ilayod upon Cuecio had led to the murder. Sylvester had a large number of friends among his countrymen, his good nature and ively disposition making him very popular. !uccio claims that he never met Sylvester' mtil yesterday, when Sylvester rudely irushod against him in the street and they had some words. He w ill not admit that he fired the fatal shot. His story does not agree with that of the boy who witnessed the murder. A VERY STORMY SFSSION Prominent feature I hope tbe book .ill b. ready in May."
