CRAIG,' The Tailor. .VET BKATJI IN T THE FLAMES. PITTSBURGH, Pa., Jan. 30,—A special to the Chronicle-Telegraph from Findlay 0., says: At 4 o'clock a. m. a disastrous fire started from some unknown cause in the little town of Cygnet, fifteen miles north of this city, and before .it could be subdued six blocks were burned a-,vay and three persons -are known to have perished in the flames. These are P. Muloney, Frank Satterlee and Gertrude Maloney- Others are reported missing and several more will probably be found to have lost their lives in the fire. The loss will exceed 8100,000, with little or no insurance. The fire broke ont at 5 o'clock in the millinery store of Mrs. Leon Maloney on Main street. It is supposed that it caught from a gas jet back of the stbre-room. On the ground floor was a sleeping room which was occupied by Mrs. Maloney and her son, while upstairs in the rooms above were Mr. Maloney and their daughter Gertrude, and a boardei named Michael Slatterly. These three last named were cut off. by the fire and perished in the flames, while Mrs. Maloney and her little son barely escaped with their lives, and will recover, although painfully burned: From the millinery store the fire communicated to the barber shop, of William Davis, which was also totally destroyed, the barber escaping in his night clothes. The next building was the grocery store of H. D. Hahn, which was destroyed, with all its contents. Above this store were sleeping-rooms, occupied by E.. J. McCullough, a school teacher, and William Milburn, a clerk, both of whom were rescued but are badly burned abo ut the faee and neck, and are in a critical condition.- After burnins the grocery store of H. D. Hahn, the flames next attacked the : dry-goods and clothing store of Jacob Fenberg, above which the proprietor and family were sleeping-, bnt: all escaped without injury except Mr. Fenherg, who inhaled the flame and smoke, and is in a critical condition and will hardly recover. The dru°- store of L. G- Myers came next and" met the same fate as the other buildings, as also did all the contents. In a sleeping-room above the store was the drug clerk, a . cripple who was rescued after his night clothing had caught fire. W. H. Belknap's notion store followed the drag store and was soon in ashes. The building occupied by the Buckeye Sup- pVy Company and owned by Shaw, Kendall & Co., of Toledo, was the last business house : -on i this street, and the flames soonj had it and its contents reduced to ashes, making seven I; business houses the sum total of tbie disaster, with three persons dead and half a] dozen or more seriously injured.! ; All the buildings were frame, and, as the; village has no fire department arid a strong wind was blowing, bnt little; couljd be done in the way of controlling the flames. The total financial loss is.. .estimated at -S60 000, with no insurance except on the stock of the store »f the Buckeye Supply Company. As| these stores embraced all the "business houses of the village, the fire has .absolutely wiped out the commercial ; ifeatures- of the place. - - ' !';-.' ' , ' Cygnet is in Wood 1 : County, and has. 1 only 200 or 300 inhabitants. It was first heard of' two years* lago, when the Standard Oil Company! .made it. the headquarters for pumping, its oil from the Lima oil-fields into Pennsylvania. WITHIN OUK BORDERS. News from Various Points in Indiana—Work of the Lawmakers. The Legislature. SDjAXAPOivrs, Ind., Jan. 31.—The House on Thursday passed bills changing the time of filing deeds from forty- five to fifteen days, abolishing the office of State oil inspector and establishing the office of supervisor of oil inspection. A hill limiting- passenger fares to two cents a mile was acted upon favorably after a long debate. There, was, however, strong opposition to it, and the charge was made that many of the legislators were under the influence of the railroads. An adverse report was made on a bill requiring- railroad companies to build depots at all stations, and a measure to compel the use of air brakes on all passenger trains was indefinitely postponed. A bill to fix ha- bilitv for loss in the handling ot freight by one road when received from another was engrossed. Under the existing laws the. railroad receiving freight and turning it over to another is not responsible to the shipper for its safe delivery. lhe leo-al rate of interest in Indiana is llniost certain to be reduced to 0 per tent The sentiment on the question has been tested by an attempt to indefinitely postpone the bill making all (interest charged over 6 per cent, usury. The motion to postpone was'defeated .'by a vote of 23 to 12. ' The Senate passed the bill which gives the appointment of members of the State Board of Health to a board composed of the Governor, Auditor and Secretary of State. Bills were introduced to prevent county and State officers, judges of courts and members of the General Assembly from accept- in-r railroad passes, authorizing the incorporation of loan, trust and safe deposit companies, prohibiting any person holding stock m any syndicate or corporation from holding a city office compelling life insurance companies doing business in Indiana to file semi-annual statements and pay to the State 5 percent^oftheir premiums.
