OMAHA, Neb., Feb. explosion occurred Saturday at tKe Armour-Cudahy packing house at South Omaha, which resulted in the instant death of one man, the subsequent death of another and what may be followed by the death of others. The explosion occurred in the boiler room of the old packing house. A battery of nine boilers is located there, two of which are reserves. The outside boiler of this battery burst, tear- ing great holes in the walls of the machinery department adjoining. The noise of the explosion soon at- tracted the great army of packing house employes to the scene, where beneath the ruins twenty-five men lay wounded. An alarm of fire, was sounded and the fire department soon arrived on the scene, joining forces with the Armour- Cudahy fire department and the two soon quelled the flames. A crowd of 100 men went to work, on the debris, hur- riedly working to relieve the sufferers, and in a short time had the dead and in- jured removed and taken to St. Joseph's Hospital- The following is a list of dead and in- jured: Jack Tighe, head fireman, in- stantly killed: flans Olosen, coal wheeler, died from inhaling hot air; Sam Gibson, burned about the head and face_will probably die; Ed Miskel was taken from the ruins with a fractured skull and severely will die; James Black was severely burned and his skull probably die; James Sheridan was badly scalded about the head and nectc: AI Harder wai scalded and burned, but his injuries are not regarded as serious. Many others were slightly injured anc a number narrowly escaped from the falling walls. The cause of the explo- sion is yet to be determined, but is probable >that the wall of the boiler room caused the explosion by falling on the boiler. The loss reaches many thou sands of dollars.

Neb., Feb. remaik able suicide is reported from Wicksville seventy-five miles northwest of here Wicksville, is a town of about 600 population, a church with a set of chimes in the steeple. A young English- man named John Dawson was sexton of the church and played on the chimes. About six weeks ago he had a severe at- tack of the grippe, lie iecovered suffi- ciently to co to work again, but has acted rather strangely and seemed very despondent. Sunday morning in the midst of the service the congregation was startled by hearing the lively strains of the "Devil's Dream" rattled off in the steeple, followed by a heavy fall and Dawson was found lying on the around groaning. Ho was carried into the church, but died in a few moments. Ho had only been in this country a short time. A S25O.OOO Smoke. JKicroioxp, Va., Feb. started here Saturday night in Cameron Siz- er's tobacco factory and soon destroyed the building and contents.

The loss is estimated at Insurance light. Between of the Different Citlee Competing; for a CoaUn- Seeaion Cntil a DecUloa to Arrive At. "WASHLNGTOX, Feb. all-im- wrtan t matter of selecting a site for World's Fair may occupy all of this week in the House. When the site has been selected the bill suited to the selection will be called up, and as there is consid- erable opposition to its passage the de- late will probably be prolonged and final settlement of the whole question may not be reached before Saturday. Mr. Mills and others have expressed themselves as opposed to the bill in gen- eral, while nearly the whole JSew York delegation objects to the Government appropriation of Even should the fair be given to New York, her rep- resentatives will vote to eliminate this section of the bill. Most of them have pledged themselves to do this. In order not to forfeit the special order giving the matter of selecting a the right of way on Monday, an ar- rangement between the representatives of the four cities will, it is understood, be made, so that if the matter Remains unsettled on Monday evening a recess instead of an adjournment will be taken until Tuesday. This will allow the retention of the special order and the fair matter will have light of way on that day. This arrangement, if effected, will be continued until the site has been Yesterday was a busy one in Congres- sional circles. Tho World's Fair people from New York, Chicago and St. Louis, who are here in full force: were busy all day securing pledges and votes and cal- culating the strength of their respective cities on the first ballot, when the ques- tion of site comes up in the House. The New York people held an informal meet- ing at the Arlington Hotel to hear re- ports, and feel buoyant and confident of ho final outcome and selection of New York. They claim to be able to show eighty votes for their city on the first >allot. The Chicago men claim 100 or sven more than that on the first ballot 'or the site. The St. Louis people ex- >ect to show sixty-five votes, and the tVashington folks are calculating on about forty votes. Mr. Kowell, the chairman of the'Elec- tions Committee, aas two contested cases that he wants to have the House dispose of during the week, but on ac- count of the World's Fair matter he has .ittle hope of accomplishing his object. These cases are those of Atkinson against Pendleton, from the First West Virginia district, and Featherstone against Gate, from the First district o Arkansas. The majority reports of the committee on both cases recommend the of the contestant, a Republican, and the House will adopt tbe reports.
