'4 ' ir I FAMOUS HOTEL BURNS. ' /....-........ , Mouse, the Mecca of Politicians, Destroyed. MANt GUESTS SAD A OI.OSB CALL Although eWfltoHes MMffH Thofo Wrtl Ntt 0Ut«ido FIl-o Edonpo— Sovernl Jumped frnwt the Windows— Kntlre Hutldlug Wrnppiul Iti £>titm«« In Fifteen Minutes, One fritetuaa tiurled VnAet Debris, ALBANY, Jf.,Y.,Deo.ol.~ The Delevatt 'House, the mecca of poliHcans and the Center of all .big stata political.lvents for 40 years past, Wtia destroyed by fire Sunday night. It was 8:80 when the political headquarters of both Mr. fish and Mr. Maltby were tilled with politicians and newspaper men that cries of fire from different putts of the house caused consternation among the guests'. The outburst of flames before an alarm could be given was appalling. Up the elevator shaft shot a solid column of flamm, which spread quickly to each of the five floors. Fortunately the guest list was not very large, and a majority of tho'aa registered were politicians and •were on the second floor. There was a rush for the stairs in the front and the •ervante' stairs in the back, where the flames had not yet reached, and in a few minutes there was a tumbling mass of humanity coming down' these two means of Egress. Those on the two upper floors could not avail themselves of these exits, for the flames were rushed along the corridors, and people on the Street, who had not seen the flames, heard a crush of gloss and saw figures come tumbling out of the windows. She WHS Determined to Jump. Within 30 minutes after the first note of alarm at least la psrgcras were dangling on the insufficient /rope fire escapes or hanging to the window sills. The department arrived quickly, but it took flome time to get ladders up and in the meantime some of the people had dropped to the street. On the right side of the building there appeared at the Window sun-ended by smoke a man and • Woman. The man had hold of the woman trying to persuade her to wait for help, bat she broke away and sprang out. She struck a balcony and rebounded to the street. The man waited for a ladder and was taken down in safety. His name is H. A. Foakss and ho represents a cash register company in Dayton, O. The .woman was his wife and sne will probably die. In ex-Speakers Maltby'a room, which was to the rear of the elevator shaft where the fire first appeared, there was the greatest excitement. About 20 poll cians were there, including Congressmen Weaver and Curtis, Senator Kil burn and Mr. Maltby. A rush was made for the stairs and when the party landed in the •treat the only 'injured one was found to • be Assemblyman Robbing, whose hair and face was badly burned. No OuMtle Fire K*c»pn. Although live stories high, there no outside lire escapes and the only means left for the people in the cut 08 rooms was to use the rope fire escapes. B. F. Heilman of Brooklyn was in the third story. He opened his rooui door as soon as he heard the cry of fire. A burst of flame made him loolf to the window as the meant of escape. He had but two alternatives— a fiery death or a, jump, He chose the latter. When picked up from the sidewalk, he was dying. , Bis wif 0, who waa in the room with him, tried a rope fire escape, but it either broke or else she failed to hold ^t, for she, too, fell to the pavement. Her right limb waa broken, her left ankle dltlouatfd and she was badly burned •boot the face and head, fidward Watah, a reporter, waa caught in tiu hall and badly burned, x In legs than 1ft minutes after the fire alarm was turasd in the entire building ' was wrapped in flame*, raeembling a huge crater, and all hope* of uving the famous structure were hopeless, The hotel takes in the nntife block, about 110 by 44U feet, and this was in another 1ft minutes u seething cauldron only found by the four walls. nr«ui*o, llurfod tlnit»r Psbrls, At M:«0 tbo euat wall foil in and some of the firemen narrowly esc/ipod befog buried, At lltfO the Broadway wall fell out and ono fireman wm buried in the debris.

In looking over the field of the \ future, he said the people should look for an improvement m the character of the newspapers.

SI.— It may bo safely said that the cnse of the stuto •gainst Hall in an opinion of tha supreme court Just filed bus had no parul lei. Deputy Sheriff Hall, standing just on this si^e of the line, fired and killed Andrew Robinson, a prisoner who was escaping into Tennessee. Hall was tried and convicted of murder in this stats, On his appeal this waa reversed that '-in contemplation of the law HaU was in Tennessee when the killing waa doae." He was then arrested au>l hold as a fugitive from justice. The governor of Tennessee sent for Hall on requisition. Hall applied for a discharge, but Judge Below refused to discharge him. Be then applied to the supreme court and the court, by a majority of one, decided he must be discharged, because not having been in Tunueasee at the time of the killing he cannot be a fugitive from justice. Justice McEaw joins in the dissent on the ground that if "in contemplation of the law Hall WM in Tonnes- see at the time of the killing," so that he cannot be tried in the courts of North Carolina in the some contemplation of law, be must be a fugitive from justice, for he cannot now be found iu Tennessee but in North Carolina, IMPORTANT DENVER ENTERPRISE.

A crisis in tho public affairs of Franco seldom fails to present dramatic aud picturesque features which make French politics of greater spectacular interest to alion onlookers than the politics of any other country. The rapidly ap-" preaching climax in tha fato of tho present government at Paris is by no menus lucking in the mixture of the moloclrnmntio and farcical elements. Tho weapons being employed in what has now become a desperate struggle are qnito unknown to ordinary political warfare. Take, for instance, the government campaign against the press, for that apparently is the real significance of the proeeuncions of blackmailing editors. Thera has been for several months what seems an insane determination on tho part of a largo section of tho sensational press to incite a warlike hatred of their neighbors, chiefly England, in the minds of the French people. Tho government has been at its wits' eiida as to bow to check this dangerous and incendiary spirit, which daily grew stronger, and move defiant. The exposure of tho blackmail scimclals fnruisboil tui opportunity to discredit the entire press and greatly wonkou its influence, of which tbo authorities, under ministerial direction, were not slow to tako full advantage. The charges against n largo class of Paris journalists are true, and tho government's rigorous pursuit is fully justified, although its motive is not disinterested love of justice. There would be probably an easy triumph of the government over its jonr- njtlistio enemies if it were not for tbo startling aud embarrassing dilemma of the cabinet, only hints of whioh as yet havo ror.ohed its critics. It grows out of the Dreyfus treason eooudul, which still ho'.iis publio resentment at a high pitch throughout France. Tho popular opinion bos almost unanimously condemned iu advance the accused captain of soiling important military secrets to Germany, and it demands a publio trial and tho swiftest and severest punishment. This feeling is largely due to certain indiscreet utterances by General Meroior, minister of war, about the case, and it is now well understood that tho cabinet is hopelessly divided into groups, hoadod by Moroier aud Hauo- tanx, tho foraigu secretory. —Paris Letter.
