When the firemen arrival they quickly extinguish'd the fire and rescind those of the inmates who had managed, by Imaging out of windows or taking re-tugs on the naif, to escajie the deadly smoke and flame. The shrieks and prayers of the terriflrel people were mingled with the cries ami groans of the injured, anil the arena was a terrible one. In a few rniuuti*, however, the imprisoned pre (pie had linen taken down Hie ladders, tlie injured removed to h<»p<tal* and the dead to the stat ion bouse. It was then f* Hind that ten persons had l*vn bunted to death. All of their Indies were found huddled together on the top floor, they lm\ ing flrel from the lower rooms w hen they first discovered the fire, tho flames having already cut off emcape by the stairway to the lower floor.

Washinijton, Feb. 3L—Speaker Resd last night made the follow ing statiunent in defense of his rulings ou the question of a quorum: “Mr. Carlisle was entirely right when he said iii Kulwtuni'e that the decision of tile house that a quorum w as constituted bi do business when a majority of tile house was present, would change from the foundation the met I a si of doing bu»inet«i. We certainly will do ho, for it will enable the majority elected by tile people to rule by their own vote*#, and not by tile sufferance of the tna-jority. ** The rule of the majority is at the very liaise of our government, lf it be not tile true rule air Taith is vain and we are1 yet in our sins. Irnok at the practical working of the other doctrine. Tile Ile publicans have a majority of seven, but they have only th roe over a quorum—IAH is our number—lt!5 is a quorum, lf we are- to furnish a quorum, Hie whole Democratic party sitting idly by in their seats, hut not jireieiit, dumb and silent when I nisi liens is to be transacted, but vocal when it is to tie obstructed, then th-re can be but three Republicans atmciit on penalty of sto|>|kuge of tile public bti-om-ss.

These may get well, tout others fall siek in their turn. There, then, Lh our quorum, according to Mr. Carlisle's idea, gone entirely to pieies. though even after all fraud Is* ileum ted, the (icople had found/or the Itepub-cans by *bm?h majority.

A hundred times I have beard him declare* that the numlierfor ami against such a bill was. say eighty for and twenty against, mathematically less than a quorum, and yet declare the bill passed and then sign that hill, thereby certifying under tile most solemn sanction of his oath of nftii** that tla* hill hail preqieiiy ami constitutionally passed the house. How oould he have done this if his doctrine he true tliat a quorum must vtiteI Understand me. Day after day Mr. Carlisle in my praence ha* declared tliat such a bill had votes for and against, by his own count as qleaker, less than a quorum, amt has yet immediately declared it (Missed, aud has signed it—than furnishing the only proof Uh* president could have tliat it was pawed. How could this be, except on the plain ground that if a quorum did not vote, the presence of a quorum was enoughl But this matter does not need argument, In Mr. Carlisle's own state, in Democratic Tennessee, in Democratic New York, in Democratic Ohio, in MasHaehusetts, and in the courts everywhere, as you may Men* by Mr. Butter-woi th’s s j leech, the doctrine just upheld by the house is the law of the land. And it ought tei lie if good government is not to perish from the face of the earth. WASTING THE PEOPLE'S TIME. “Not a ruling has been made in the house to suppress filibustering, w hich has not the full sanction of parliamentary law. That men should resist only shows how ingrained the wrong course has become ami bow necemary Uh* reiiHxly. Wlmt is the house trying to do? Why, to jierform it* highest function, tliat of deckling the right of a member to his seat. I util Inh*2 no man ilared to filibuster against such a cane. No man ought to lie allowed to do it to-dav. Yet every day three hours are wasted in approving the journal when five minutes would be ample. Them* three hours I lek Mig to the public business. The people do not understand that every wanton roll call consume* three-quarters of an bour. “Some of these men are talking about rules.

The Blair Fdtiratliinal Hill on th* Docket. Th* Hon** Squabble. W ABRI NOTON, Feb. 3.—The senate has set aside to-day for the consideration of the Blair educational bill. It conn*** up at 2 o'clock as the unfinished busine** of the senate, and it will continue to come up at 2 o’ckick each day until it is disposed of. Its passage is a foregone conclusion, lint it may b»* dei ateil at Home length and it* consideration may eat up two or three afternoons. A decision is expected from the supreme Wirt of th * United Btates to-day in the suit involving the validity of the Idaho test oath. In event this decision is rendered the eom-mittei* on territories may dispiwe of tlw* bill for the admission of Idaho at it* meeting today. Senator I’latt, the chairman of the committee, has, however, more urgent mate ters to tiring before toe s**nate. The secretary of the interior, in an interview with him last Friday, laid before the senate the necessity of flushing to a passage the bill already refs>rte*I from the committee providing a temporary government for Oklahoma Senator I’latt w ill have the senate consider this motion at an early day. The cuSte mis administ ration bill, known a* tin* McKinley bill, will be reported to the finance committee tomorrow by the subcommittee, Senators Allison, Aldrich and McPherson, and wi.t doubtless be repirtexi to the acuate tile same day. A number of amendment* will bt* suggested, arni when the senate (tasses the measure it will be thrown into conference where it will *tay for some day*. The discussion of Senator Butler's bill to awm tla* 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 measure further, as he believe* it ha# Iwen arriouMly nm’indent*»si by some of the speaker* who have discusse l it in the senate. In th* secret session th* nominations of Indian Commis#amar Morgan and the mqienii-teiident of Indian «i‘1hxiLh, Dr. Ikircliester, are still waiting consideration. It is lielieved that much of the delay in comideratiott in tlM*se ca***# i* due to the fear that if they were brought up at this time they would be acted ujshi adversely. Bo they inuy not Is* considered during the coming week. An effort w ill be made, however, to obtain time for the consideration of the Samoan treaty which ia now (lending. Senator Hisoock'# committee on qtiadri-centermini will prokaUy me»*t during the week. but no report is exf**cted from it immediately. DEMOCRAT# W’ILL YI OUT HARD.

The policy outlined iii the speeches is an aggressive aud harsh adherence to Uh* essential element* of the government's program which has been consistently followed in th* past, w hile at the same time there are various side issues introduced which will serve to occupy tile time of (larUamcut and interest, not to say l**fog, the country without accomplishing much of either go si or harm. Mr. Tennant's approval of the scheme for (laying salaries to members of the house of common* indicates that that measure will lie allow ell to take up a good diwl of time, possibly w ith the object of catering to the Radical element in a minor particular. The ter. Bv utterance* of Lord Salisbury In regard to woman suffrage hare also some such j >r« .I mi I de object in view. The I,literals, however, are in the mood to demand discussion of tho dre*|H*r lying reforms embodied in tbi*ir (flat form, and w ill doubt less rebel against the sidc-tru- I. ing of iiiijMirtunt issues while questions of more theoretical than (>ra<*-I ^hret tical value are debated.

There are quite a number of free traders who believe tin* quickest way to determine whether the tariff is really beneficial or not is to increase it considerably and note th* effect. Those who take this view will not op-(Kise the preqiosisl increase of duties, butef the effect re*sulting is not plainly advantageous they will insist upon a revenual of the o(e aration and call forth a marked reduction of the tariff **h*,,ule.

In one of his “drawing room talks” Is*fore a party of aristocrats at tile residence of til* Earl of Aberdeen, the great. American showman, P. T.

There was blank silence and much remnterna-tion on tile British brow when Hie story * as concluded, hut after Barnum had got half way through the next story the joke began to dawn u(mn the audience, aud when the sereuid story wa# fin blu'd they were laughing gleefully at the first one. Barnum worked many of tile chestnut# of early America tijKin th* Britishers and they enjoyed the olden! he#t. In the intervals of story telling Mr*. Shaw whistled, and Hhortis, an American banjoist, o| tern ted ujsm that instrument, and iii the end every I* sly was delighted, and Barnum was greater than ever. Mr. and Mn*.
