The casualties DISASTROUS A Brewery Wall Injartafl Twelro Workmen, Oae of Builders, NEW YORK, Dec, 31. The bisr brew- ery of Herman Koehler, occupying the whole block at First avenue between Twenty-ninth and Thirtieth streets, was tho scene Tuesday afternoon of disastrous calamity while in progress of reconstruction. The southeast wall fell in. The firemen succeeded in extricat- ing all of the workmen from the ruins. Of the forty who were at work twelve were injured, one of whom died at the hospital later in the afternoon. No one was killed outright. Three foremen of the of work- men have been placed under arrest, charged with being criminally responsi- ble for the accident. They are Joseph Turner, foreman of tho bricklayers and masons; William Williams, foreman of the housesonths, and Adam Ackorman, foreman of the joiners.

CHICAGO, Dec. of Police Marsh feels confident that in the three desperadoes under arrest for robbing the South Chicago bank on Monday, he terday with the SeTenth cavalry and the surviving prisoners. He reports twenty-five of his men killed and thirty- lour wounded in the fight Monday on Wounded Knee creek. General Brooke has since the fight revoked his order for to carry prisoners south under guard. WASHINGTON, Dec. Gen- eral Schofield yesterday afternoon re- ceived the following telegram from General Miles, at Hermosa, S. D.: "Colonel Forsytha says sixty-two dead Indian men were counted on the plain where the attempt was made to disarm Big Foot's band, and where the fight be- gun on other'parts of the ground were eighteen men. Six were brought in badly wounded and six others were with a party of twenty-three men and women which Captain Jackson had to abandon when attacked by about 150 Bruie In- dians from the agency. "This comments General Brooke, "for ninety-two men killed and leaves but few alivo and unhurt The and children broke for the hills when tho fight commenced and compar- atively few of them were hurt and few brought in. Thirty-nine are here, of TrtrictrnumBef'txrotity-6'Tie" are wounded. Had it not been for the attacks by the Brules, an accurate accouut would have been made, but the ravines were not searched afterwards. I think this shows very little apprehension from Big Foot'3 band in the future. A party of forty ia reported as held by the scouts at the head of Mexican Creek. These consist of all sizes and the cavalry from Rose- bud will bring them in if it is true." "These says General Miles, "under Big Foot were the most desper- ate. There wore thirty-eight of the re- mainder of the Cheyenne river band and thirty that broke away from Hump's following when he took his band and the Sitting Bull Indians to Fort Ben- nett, making in all nearly 160 warriors. "Before leaving their camps on the Cheyenne river thoy cut up their har- ness, damaged their wagons and started south for the Bad Lands, evidently in- tending not to return, but to go to war. The troops wero placed between them and the Bad Lands and they never suc- ceeded in join-ing the hostiles there. All their movements were intercepted and their severe loss at the hands of the Seventh cavalry may be a wholesome lesson to the othor Sioux." RAPID Crrr, S. D., Doc. reigns supremo between here and the camp of the troops. Settlers are fleeing in all directions to escape the impend- ing massasre, and the roads are crowded with terror-stricken women and chil- dren. In the vicinity of Pine Ridge Agency the greatest fear prevails. Five thousand Sioux are encamped in a circle around tho agency buildings and if aa uprising occurs, as now sterns only too probable, nothing can save from an awful death the corporal's guard of in- fantrymen sent from Omaha to guard the ranch. Every succeeding boar makes danger more imminent. Desultory firing Mon- day night on the outskirts of the asrancy warned tbe defenders of tbe agency buildings that their hours of safety numbered. Little Wound and Two Strike, inflamed to a vengeful passion by the news of Big Foot's fatal treach- ery, are reported to be massing their bands for instant attack. The Indian police already have had livclysklrmish- ing with tbe hostiles in tbe vicinity of the school building. If an attack is made the result willbe the instant destruction of the entire camp, as all tbe buildings are of wood and in an almost defenseless condition. Every thing i- for upon tbe arri- val of General w'no is on his way to the scene of danger. A pamc also prevails at Rathwra. but it is thought the railroad towss ar.? not at present ia danger. has the men who perpetrated the Aller- ton robbery and who knocked down and robbed an old man a week or so ago near the stock yards. "Tbe description given by Allerton's messengers of the men who attacked them fits Feather- stone, alias Hennessey, and Bennett ex- said the chief, "and we are in hopes that we have theganglockedup." One of the robbers, which one the po- lice will not say. was yesterday identi- fied as the man who hired the horse and buggy used in the Allerton robbery. All the thieves will bs arraigned before a justice of the peace to-day. WILL GO OOT_OP BLAST. Furoaoemen In the Blahoalne and She- Banco Valleys Will Shut for an Indefinite Torlod. PITTSBURGH. Dec. iron fur- nace proprietors in the Mahoning and Shenango valleys held an important meeting in Youngstown, O., yesterday and resolved that on January 10 they will close down their furnaces indefi- nitely. Twenty-three furnaces wero represented. The operators claim that awing to the high railroad tariffs and the present cost of coke they are unable to continue work except at ahoavy loss. Tho coke operators recently reduced tbe price of coke twenty-five cents per ton, hoping to assist the furnacemen, but the latter insisted upon a greater reduction, which the coke manufactur- ers claim they can not concede.

LONDON, Dec. terrific confla- gration broke out yesterday on Queen Victoria and Thames streets, intersect- ing thoroughfares in the great business quarter of the city. A large number of warehouses wore on fire and the flames spread rapidly. Fourteen engines re- sponded to the first alarm. A high wind which prevailed rendered futile the ef- forts of the firemen to prevent the spread of the flames or even keep the raging elements under any sort of con- trol. A large paper warehouse, a num- ber of fancy goods stores and the Gulch- er engineering works were destroyed. and the great fur emporium of Revillon of Frederick T Dubots Freres was greatly damaged. The fire worked out toward tho build- ing occupied by the offices of the Salva- tion Army. An enormous throng of peo- ple assembled here gave the police plenty of work in keeping them back from danger from crumbling masonry. As the flames shot out toward the Salva- tion Army quarters they played across and illuminated the great sign in front of the building, which "bears the legend: "Blood and Fire." The high wind finally subsided and, this, added to the almost superhuman efforts of the firemen who manned the twenty-nine engines at work prevented the ignition of the Salvation Army headquarters. No reports have been re- ceived at either police or fire headquar- ters of loss of life as a consequence ot the conflagration. The phenom'enallyoold weather great- ly hampered the efforts of the firemen, the water freezing in the engines and many of tha men having their hands and other parts of their bodies frozen. The hosemen had to be lashed to the ladders, their hands being so benumbed that they could not grasp the supports. The total loss placed at The heaviest individual loss is that of Re- villon Freres, the wholesale furriers. Thoy had just imported a stock of seal- skins valued at Later esti- mates place the loss to Revillon Freres at Their stock of furs was valued at Half the stock was j totally destroyed and the remainder i damaged. Whi e a large portion of the fire brig- ade was 'iff '.oaftil'ng-witQ too fire in Queen Victoria street, another serious conflagration was raging in the suburb of Hackney, sixteen engines be- ing engaged in the attempt to subdue it The property destroyed in this locality was the works of Corliss, Capel Leon- ard, benzoline refiners and naphtha dis- tillers. There were gallons of spirits stored in tanks underneath the buildings and while the fire was in progress several of these exploded with great force, injuring a number of per- sons and terrorizing the population of the vicinity. The shock of the explo- sion was plainly felt at points in Lon- don five miles distant. The works were entirely destroyed, together with some adjacent buildings. The loss is very heavy. _______________ Counterfeiter and Ontflt Captured. CHICAGO, Dec. Koch was arrested late Monday night on a charge of counterfeiting.

The time which the bill engrossed was not opportuns. Nearly one-third of the session was through, and daylight was not yet visible. There were before the Senate measures of vast importance that would full for another year unless they were now acted upon. Among the measures awaiting action, Mr. Wolcott mentioned the Silver bill, the Appor- tionment bill, the Pure Food bill, the Copy- right bill and the Private Land Court bill. We stand, he said, in the shadow of a great finan- cial disaster. The people turn to Congress for relief. They want assurance either that there will be no legislation on the financial subject (so that they oun their houses In or- or that they will receive an adequate me- dium of circulation.
