   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 17, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAK-NO. 196. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 17. 1S90. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BKOTHBKS---HIBLIBHKBS CURRENT COMMENT. The tariff has been reformed; but the Tariff Reformers are still hard at work. Iam lieartily in favor of ballot reform and a secret ballot.-George Wallace Dela- ItATEli. The reception given Senator Delamater at the borne of General Hastings was such as to warm the heart of any candidate for a life time. There is no longer any doubt of Dela-mater's triumphant eleetion. It is only a question now of how much majority. Make it an even 50.000. "Uncle" Andy Best will make worthy successor to Sheriff Leahy and should be elected. All the Republican Sheriffs wo have had have been first-olass ones and Mr. Best will provo no exception to the rule. If gon would know what Democratic triumph inthisfitate this/all means, turn to your neigh bora in Ohio. There a controlling Jew gave oyer Republican supremacy to the Democratic parly. What was the resultf A Democratic utlminixtra-t ion in that Stale at the present time and a Democratic Free Tratle Senator in the Senate of the United titales.-A djulant- General HaMinas. The office of County Treasurer is one of the most important to be filled at the coming election and the interest of the people will be best subserved by placing an experienced business man like W. F. Loveland iu charge, rather than a politician. It is essentially a business office and should be conducted by a oapable business man on strict busiuoss principles, therefore vote for Lovelend. Foe nearly Ave years John F. Brown has filled the office of Frothonotary iu a satisfactory manner so far as we know, but no better than James Jeffetis, the Republican candidate, is capable of doing.  Because Mr. Brown has performed the da-ties of the office as every intelligent man should do, is no convincing reason why he should be continued there for a third term, or virtually what would prove i third term should be again be elected. Besides this there are a good many people who think that Mr. Brown and his family have held office quite long enough in this connty and ought to be willing to retire to private life for a while. So strong is this belief among the majority of voters that they propose to relieve Mr. Brown of the dutieB devolving upon the Frothonotary and plaoe the office in eharge of James Jefferis, who ia in every way qualified to fill Mr. Brown's place in a highly satisfactory manner to the people generally. Why should the Brown family have a monopoly of the Prothonotary'B office ? The Amei-ican people are opposed to all kinds of monopolies, even that of office-holding. Vote for James Jefferis.

Terrified Victims Leap From the  Upper Stories Only to be Crashed and Man-Sled by the Fall-Many Thrilling and Portions Escapes Made- Abont Thirty Persons Severely Injured. Syracuse, N. Y., Oot. 10.-By the burning of the Leland Hotel early this morning the total loss exceeds $125,000. The hotel cost $80,000.  The furniture was destroyed. There is considerable loss by the American Express Company on its building and express matter, adjoining the hotel.  The individual inmates of the hc-tol lost heavily in personal effects.  It is probable that the loss of life will not exceed oight persons-three guests and fivo servants.  About thirty persons were severely injured.  The fire was discovered at 12:30 a. m., and in half an hour the hotel was burned to the ground.   The Leland was built three years ago, and was the best hotel in Syraouse. Others were rescued by the firemen on ladder?, though the many overhead telegraph wires interfered with and caused a delay in the raising of the ladders.  Some J became frightened while waiting for the | ladders and jumped to the roof of a boiler house, on the west side of the bailding, or to the ground. All who jumped sustained serious injuries.   Annie Cumznings a domestic, with three oomp'ahions stood on the fifth story window, and despite the persuasion of her companions jumped to the ground.  She was instantly killed The other three were saved by tho fire men. mast narrow escapes. At first it was feared that the loss of life was in the neighborhood of thirty, but the number of missing and dead has been reduoed to seven or eight. When the flames were discovered the automatic firo alarm belts in the various rooms were set ringing and awaked the guests. The flames and smoke, however, cut off the msans uf escape of many of the guests and servants by the stairways. A number of them lowered themselves by means of flre escapes with whljh each room was equipped. While the laddermen were at work hoisting ladders willing hands had hold of the jumping net. The Oummings woman jumped with the evident intention of landing in the net. In her descent she struok the wires and her body bounded over and over and she fell a bruiBed and mangled heap seven feet from the net. Meanwhile the laddermen were working with a will, and succeeded in placing an extension ladder against the building. A cry of horror rang out from the spectators when it was short, but this was quickly succeeded by a cheer when ono of the laddermon mounted the ladder, and standing on the topmost round, reached up and helped down the throe women. It was tho work of a hero. Had the Cummings woman waited a moment or two her life would have been spared. On all sides men and women ooutd be seen dropping from the windows or sliding down tho fire escapes. In tho oentre of tho building was a court yard. Here was being enacted similar scenes (o those on the outside of the building. Tho guests in the rooms faoing tbo court in many instances had to make tboir escape by this meanB. Some jumped while others used the fire escapes. Oo the roof, of the boiler house, located at the west side of the building, at one time lay six or seven persons unconscious and injured. They were removed by tbe firemen and others to places of safety. tub list OK victims. The following is a list of the dead so far as known: Annie Cummings, of New York, jumped from the window and was instantly killed. William E. Harrop, of Elizabeth, New Jersey,' plaoe of business, 79 Worth street, New York, aged forty, lowered himself by a rope, balf way down from tbo fourth Moor, when the rope burned off and he fell to the ground; died at hospital. Kosie Schwarz, aged 22, hotel domestic, jumped from tbe. fifth floor; died at tbe House of tho Good Shepherd.

Robert T. Mills, of New York, a guest. A, J. Van ilouteu, of Jersey City, a guest. George E. Wood, of Dexter, Now York, a guest. coiia tanner's escape. Cora Tanner, tbe actress, who was first reported as having been  badly burned of a fire escape and then followed himself. Tho only injury sustained by Miss Tanner was tho laoeralion of tho palms of her hand in hor descent. Miss Tauuer saved her jewels and $500 in money by tying them around her neck. All the other members of Miss Tanner's company some of whom wore reported as having perished in the flames, made their escape from the hotel uninjured. THROUGH FIRE ANl> smoke. Miss Tanner was taken to the Vander-bilt House and attended to in the Indies' pallor. The other members of her com pany are also at tbe Vanderbilt House, Miss Dnpreo and Miss Klein, both of tbe same company, had narrow escapos. They were on the fifth floor and would doubtless have perished bad it not been for that courageous boy who ran tbe elevator. They grouped around the hall until they heard a shout to come to the elevator. They followed the sound of the voice and found tho car. They were taken down safely, although the flames shot into the elevator at nearly every floor. William T. Grover, acting manager for Miss Tannor, who was filling an engagement at the Grand Opera House sayB:- 'Nearly, if not all, of tho young ladies of Miss Tannor's company who occupied rooms on ths third and fourth floors of tbo hotel bad retired, but sevoral of the gentlemen wero still out when the fire started. I threw a few of my clothes and personal effects into my trnnk, but lost them in tbe end, I was on tbe fourth floor. Among others on that floor was Miss Ada Dwyer, of the company. We met in tbe hail, and started in tbe direction of tho sound of the voice of a fireman who was showiug frantic men and women the way to the stairs. We got separated in the orowd in tho halls, whore the scene was an awful one. The gas must have been put out by tho dense smoke, for the halls were soon in total darkness. I did not see Miss Dwyer again until we met on tho ground floor. I lost all my personal effeota except my watoh and money. KRianTTCI' SCENES, At. 1:12 a. m. a man and a woman were seen locked in oaoh others arms in a window on the fifth door, at the northeast corner of tie building. No possibility of escape, except by the window, was open to them, and that seemed inevitable death No assistanco could reach them. The woman seemed anxious to jump, but her husband was earnestly entreating her to desist. The crowd below waited with bated breath. The woman made one last effort to jump, was restrained by her hus band, and the cry of tbe orowd signaled the awful end that mnBt have befallen them as they fell backwards into the room, which was a mass of flames. At a window on the fourth floor, almost directly under this, a woman appeared at the window. This was surrounded on all sides from the interior of the room by fierce flames. She seemed irresolute as to whether to jump to the pavement or to face the fiery foe that was fast encroach, ing on her liberty and life. She stepped upon the sill of the window and placed her hands above hor head. Pooplo ia the stroot below shuddered and turned their faces to shut out tbo horrible sight that must meet their gaze should the woman jump to tho ground. The woman did not jump, and seemed to be withheld by either fear or a feeling that escape would come from some other source. She stepped down from the sill into the room, but remained at the window but one instant, when the whole room beoame enveloped in flames, and the woman sank back from viow. FIERCE pcby OP TIIE FLAMES. Tho frightful shrieks of the guests and the crackle of tho flames oould be beard for blocks away. The building burnod so rapidly that most of tbe people on the upper iloor wore obliged to use the fire escape or jump for their lives. One woman appeared at a window iu a room on the north side of the building with a baby in ber arms. Her pitiful cries for help were beard until tho flames gathered around hor. The firemen tried in vain to raise a laddor on this side of the building. Tho woman was told to throw out the rope, or jump from the window. 3he threw out the rope, and as she was oiimbing out of the window the flames envoloped'her and she fell back into the building and perished. Seven or eight men'and children jumped from the upper stories on to a shed iu tho roar of the building. At one time seven persons were struggling together on the shed, which bad already caught fire from the flying sparks. Tho victims were half naked. 8evcral of them wore scon to tear from their bodies undergarments that bad caught firo. One woman lay on tho ground where she had fallen, tearing the bair from her bead. Her hair had caught fire, and it was with difficulty that the flames were quenched. She, together with the others who had the fire was the terrible death of a woman [ who jumped from tho fifth story of the | building. Several policemen .stood on the sidewalk holding nets ready to catch the guests as they jumped. Two persons, a man and a woman, jumped into the net almost at the same moment aud escaped with    broken   limbs.    Tho   next   to TIIE SENATORIAL QUESTION. jump was a woman who appeared it window on the fifth story in her night clothes. She leaped out of the window and, missing the net, was dashed to pieces on the stone sidewalk. She was pioked up and removed to tbe morgue. One of tbe firemen told his story of tbe woman who was killed by jumping: 'When we came we were hampered by telegraph wires on West Fayette street. In trying to raise the ladder it beoamo caught in the wires. A woman stood in the window orying for help. The flames were leaping out towards her, and she was frantie with fright. I went up the ladder to out the wires. While I was doing this she jumped thinking that wo oould not reach her, and tbe awful result waB that she missed the net and was killed." about the feet and head, escaped with slight injuries.   When she was aroused j jumped from the roar windows, was picked she rushed into the hall and into the first open room, where a man was about lowering himself from tbe window. Miss Tanner sailed ont to him: "For God's sake save me I" Tbo man stopped in hta flight i�nd lowered her to the ground by means up and carried on a stretcher to a saloon in tho neighborhood. Iu this saloon sevoral persons lay on tho pool tables in all positions. " lbapiho 1mto the net, One of tbe most frightful accidents of RAPID SPREAD Or THE FLAMES. It was 12:45 when the fire was discovered in the region of the kitchen located on tho second floor, in the rear of the west side of the building. Inside of fifteeu minutes tho building was in Barnes from end to end, and before thirty minutes had elapsed tho walls had fallen, with the ex ceptiou of the northeast oornor. The whole was one seething furnace, to which was added the horror that many lives were nvolved. At first it was feared that the loss of life waB in tho neighborhood of thirty, but tbe day wore along and tbe number of misBing and dead was reduced to seven or eight. When the flames began to sweep through the hotol Night Clerk Porter Jones set tbe automatic fiie alarm bells ringing, and be fore ,the rudely awakened guests oould realize what was the matter, the flames and smoke rushed through tbe balls cut-ng off the means of escape. The scene beggars description. Strong men seemed to bo paralyzed with fear and knew not what to do. Others, more oool, hurriedly donned some of ttoir clothing and girdled about them the patent flre escape with which each room was equipped. It was nothing but a pieoe of webbing and a rope but by its means many lives were saved. The burning hotel viewed from the street presented a scene which will never be forgotten. It was agonizing in tbe extreme. At many windows of the five stories of tbe burning building could be seen men and women, piteously calling for help or making their escape by tbo rope appliances. SOME oj THE INJURED. Following is a list  of the severely injured: Annie Campbell, aged 18, hotel domestic, jumped from fifth floor; left eye smashed; compound fracture right upper arm; compound dislocation right ankle; severe shock; will probably live.

The following newspaper opinions on the nomination of P. Gray Meek aB tho Democratic candidate for State Senator in this district will be interesting roading for both Democrats and Republicans: Bellefonto News. Tbe nomination was made at a late hour on Tuesday evening by Clearfield's conferees voting with Centre's. Clinton's men stood by Hippie to the la�t and now tBat they failed to bring home the plum to present to their man the Democrats in that oounty are kicking like a set of mad steers. Well, well, lot them go it; it is none of the Republicans' funoral, anyhow, and by the time Bro. Meek gets through with it, he might find that he bad gotten a "pig in a poke" whioh when it was turned out on the morning of the fifth of next November would prove to bo a-Skunk. But here's to you! Now let tho Republicans go to work and put up any good man and tbe next State Senator from this district is ours. Williamsport Republican. The Democrats in the Clearfield-Coutre-Clinton Senatorial district have at last succeeded in nominating a candidate for Senator and it is not T. 0. Hippie, Esq., of Look Haven, but P. Gray Meek, of Belle-fonte. The result was brought about by a deal between Clearfield and Centre and the Clinton county Democrats are up in arms against Meek and his methods. Clinton has been elearly entitled to tbe nomination for two or three terms and counted herself a sure winner this year. Her oandidate, T. C. Hippie, Esq., was one of the leading memberB of tbe Clinton county bar and a roan of brains and ability far beyond the successful one. Tbe Clinton conferees refused to make tbe nomination unanimous and there is a good chance of electing a Republican Senator in tho distriot if the right man ia nominated. Renovo Record. Clinton county was fairly entitled to the Senator for the coming term. Centre oounty bad the honor from 1878 to 1882 and Clearfield from 1883 to 1889. But nominations don't appear to go now-a-days acoording to popular will. Tbe fellow who can afford to offer the most wealth, the biggest inducements, or who is the slickest wire puller, generally ear. rieB off the prize, and iu tbe same name of his dear party organization, then expects every voter to walk up to the polls and ratify his crooked work. We do not pretend to insinuate that unfair means or triokery were used to defeat Clinton's candidate, but one thing is dear tbe rightful claims of Clinton oounty have again been unfairly set aside, which will now require a fair explanation to induce the Demooraoy to support the nomination. EIGHT MEN BADLY BURNED A Horrible Accident in a Blast Furnaco Near Pittsburg. - HOME HAPPENINGS-POEEISH FACTS Church   Notices-Railroad Itam-Died at Bellefonte - Judge   Lynn's   Funeral Church Festlval-A Grave Error-Mistaken Identity-Balloon Ascension-"Our Country Cousin." Pittsburg, Oot. 18.-An accident occurred at Moorhead, MoCle&ne: & Company's blast fnrnaee at Solo this afternoon, resulting in seriously injuring eight workmen, two fatally. The men were engaged in drawing coke from tho ovens, when the hot dust blew out euveloping tbe entire party. Edwaid and John Hughes were burned almost beyoud recognition. They are still living but will die. Peter Eithany, Fred-erick Baker and four Hungarians, whose names could not be learned, were also bad ly burned. The injured were removed to tho Homoeopathic Hospital. All but the Hughes brothers will likely recover. The cause of the accident is not known. There was no serious damage done to tho mill Mistaken Identity. There was a very prottystory told in the Democrat yesterday about druggist Fran-ciscuB kissing and petting a child at the depot Wednesday night. Tho truth of tho matter is Mrs. Franoisous and dangh* ter were not away from home that evening and druggist Franoisous was in his store at the time mentioned. Iu all other ro-Bpeots the story may be trne enough bnt Mr, Franoisous was not in it. Lecture at Lamsr. Next Friday night, October 24th, Rev. S. D. Wilson, of Williamsport, will lecture on tho subject of Temperance in the hall at Lamar. After tbe lecture a Good Templars lodge will be organized by Harry W. Shaffor, Lodgo Deputy, of this oity. A number of members of tbe lodges at tbiB place and Mill flail will attend tbe lecture and assist in organizing the new lodge. Another Adjournment. The Congressional Conference met at Williamsport yestorday afternoon and adjourned to this morning. A telephone to tho Express states that another adjournment was .nade this forenoon until afternoon, without having accomplished anything. "Old Soldier" vs tbe "Democrat." The editor of the Democrat in attempting to answer the interrogations of "Old Soldier" evades all questions at point, and attempts to keep his readers in ignorance of tbe facts, as has been the custom of the Demooraoy from time immemorial. Tdo not intend to carry on a controversy in connection with this or any other question in interest unless tbe same can be answered with truth and common decency- This Is no time, on the eve of an important election, to try to deceive the people by auoh slush as is used by tbe editor of the Dimo-cral in evasion of important questions at issue. As to the identity of "Old Soldier he stands ready to produce his.record, and is not ashamed of it either. If I mistake not there was a time when the govern ment furnished headstones for indigent soldiers, free of cost, but I would ask Mr. Furey if there is a government appropriation for that purpose now ? How long ago did the government cease furnishing; these headstones ? Does Mr. Furey know what ho is talking about?      Old Soldier. * "Our Country Coiutn." The heavy rain of last night did not deter a largo audienoe from witnessing Frank Jones in bis new play "Our Country Cousin." It proved to be even better than "Si Perkins," and at the elose of the performance there was a general call to come soon again. Tbe play is filled with ludicrous situations and quaint sayings, yet there is an interesting story tanning through the piece that is developed satisfactory to.all In the dosing act. The railroad scene in the third act was one of the strongest realistic effeots ever seen on tbe Opera House stage, and the enthusiasm of the audience was only subdued after the principals of the play appeared before the curtain. Prof. Geo. C Little. Gov. Beaver writes about Mr. Little in the following manner:. 'Wondrously skillful with the orayon, his efforts are entertaining and suggestive,, and, in my opinion, calculated to awaken an interest in his subject whioh will be productive of the best practical results." Prof. Little will give his excellent entertainment in the chapel of the Normal School Monday evening, Oct. 20. Admission only tin cents. Church Festival. To night and to morrow night the ladies of tho M. E. church and Sunday school at Dunnsburg will bold a festival iu the school house at that place.
