FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20. isn. Tnz Chicago Tbibo-z has opened Ita offices at tfo. 15 South Canal atreet, West Division, and the poper will hereafter be regularly issued from thst place till further notice. To TYe devote all tbe space wo can possibly spare to advertisers in this morning's paper, and those who find that their advertisements are left cot will pardon it to the necessity of giving a lair portion of our columns to the reading public.

The demand for intelligence is not only eatiable, bat it is absolutely necessary to the welfare of tbe people and the city that much of that which wo publish should go to the public. We divide oar space between tbe reader and the and that Is tbe best wo can do for both classes. The advertiser will understand that the earlier in tbe day be gives ns what he wishes to have published, and the smaller tbe rpace into which he condenses it, the more likely it is to find place in bnr columns. To Our Country We have received many letters of inquiry from country subscribers desiring Information as the probable time when we shall be able to enpply them with The Tbibdke, as of old. We reply at the very earliest possible moment.

The principal diffienltyln the way now is the Chicago Post Office, which is unable to distribute ear paper for the malls, owing to the disarrangement of their system of doing that work. Another difficulty, which will cause some delay, is tbe destruction of the machinery used in oar office for matting tbe names of tbe subscribers upon the papers. These are the leading dif- Acuities, in the way; but we hope this will be'remodiod within a very few days, when we shall be in shape to resume our relations with oar subscribers. In tbe meantime, although ihd capacity of our power press is limited, we hope each day to send a few thousand copies of The Tribuke into tho country by train boys. Wo beg tbe indulgence of our country friends, assuring then tbatno effort within human power will bo spared to bring perfect order out of tbe present chaos.

have full and perfect copies of our scrlption TEE REAL ESTATE WRANGLERS. The better portion of the community will regret that all the wrangling real estate speculators who are pulling each others hair over the ashes of the best part of Chicago were uot incapacitated on that fatal Sunday night for the display of their peculiar qualities. We have refrained, up to this time, from alluding to them, because could not afford to let the outside world know that we hare Such base characters in our midst. The work of supplying the needy and destitute, the houseless and supperiess, must go on, and it must not be stopped or checked by the infuriate greed of a few miserable squabblers in acre property or corner lots. They had better betake themselves elsewhere, for the public can make better use of their room than of their company for some time to come.

The great strife now is to wrest from the South Division the prominence which it has heretofore enjoyed as a. centre. The thing cannot be not even though the owners of property in the burnt district should join in the effort. In the first place, the West Division is the same sort of a Undcr-box as the South Division was before the fire only more so. New builders and new owners of valuable goods will not put their property in such exposed places.

In truth, the burnt district is the only absolutely safe place in the city to-day. The North Division is in better shape to carry off the wholesale trade then the West Division. The West Division cannot make any impression on that trade till it has a great fire to sweep off existing buildings and make rqom for new ones of non-combustible And the same argument will govern the building of the great Union Depot Aside from this forces of geography and topography, and all the other natural forces, are working with silent might to rebuild the burnt district for the use and behoof of the same interests that were a few days since consumed. History does not furnish an instance where a burned district of a city has not been rebuilt in the same general way as before the fire. The same kind of business has returned to the old places, because these places were the natural and most convenient and most profitable places for it to go.

It is simply impossible to reverse this law. AP is not pleasant to record any evidence of thoughtless selfishness at a time of great public distress, and we are all glad to feel that thus far the Universal temper of the people, of all classes, has been one of public consideration and personal self-sacrifice. But we note an instance to the contrary which ought not to be passed over in silence. The welcome gurgle of the water in all our houses, two days ago, was a relief which can only be understood by those who suffered the deprivation and lived through the depressing anxiety, on that account, of the last ten days. The fresh and vivid remembrance of even that brief famine, which concerned not merely our comfort, but left us at the mercy of any fire that should break out would, one would think, have made everybody as careful of the returning water, and considerate of the necessity of not wasting It, as they were joyful at its return.

Those who were not thus mindful of an inestimable blessing, we trust, were the exception and not the rule; but nevertheless there was seen much oftener than was pleasant a reckless waste of that which only a few hours before was brought laboriously in buckets from the lake, which no human power could have given us in any useful or hardly appreciable quantity in case of fire, and which there was no certainty might not again be cut off in a few hours by trouble in the mains and the inevitable waste in the burnt district People brought out their hose to water their grass-plots, to wash their Louse-fronts and windows, to throw it with lavish hand, and were as jo.ligal in- its use as if they had never the want of it, or bad no fear of losing it again. It doubt, owing partly to this recklessness that water was jG; jarce on the West Side soon after v.iS in full bead on tbe South Side, crcat a general feeling of uneasiness, lesl another conflagration should break oul aud destroy what is left of that division. Now, if the individuals, many or few, who arc thus destitute of any sense of public cannot be shamed into consideration of public a proper necessity and public feeling, then theirs are call for the exercise oflegal coercion. The management of the water of the city is of vital importance; nor can there be too much vigilance, exercised, not only in providing a supply, but in guarding against waste. Within the houses it ig difficult to to do this, except by an appeal to he common sense and common humanity tof the people; but out of doors it should not be permitted for a moment whenever it is discovered.

It is not only the comfort of the the circumstances ilic least the safety of the city and the health of the inhabitants that arc concerned. Wholesome water is as absolutely essential as pure air, and the city cannot submit to any long de privation of it from any cause. While Chicago burned and the people New York were reading the account of the tempest of dames and work of devastation, they forgot their local grief over the huge robberies perpetrated by the (seizers), which had trebled the city debt; in two years, swelling from forty millings in 1869 to. one hundred and twenty millions in IB7L But they have again resumed the contemplation of the larceny, which is only exceeded in magnitude of loss by that suffered by this fire-swept city. The Investigation Committee bad, op to Saturday last, located more than fifteen millions of the stolen money in the possession of the following partners of Tweed, Sweeney, Connolly, and Hall, chiefly abstracted last year and the first half of this year: Keyier Co C.

Total, ABOUT RADIATING STREETS The New York World essays to show how we should rebuild Chicago so as to make It the idodel city of the world. Its intent is evidently good, but its advice is founded upon a misapprehension of present state of affairs in this city. The World tells ns that the New Chicago must have a system of radiating streets, like those of Washington, and of Paris since its reconstruction by Haussman. It remarks, in behalf of such a plan, that the rectangular plan not only substitutes the prosaic for the picturesque, but is really the most inconvenient plan upon which a city can be The Sordid takes up the same refrain, tells us how Washington is built, and adds: plan for the reconstruction of radiating, broad avenues and the open plazas which they create at tho points oj intersection with each other and tho regular streets. Thus, with those avenues, you-will have broad barriers of proteotion against the spreading of a fire in any direction, and in these open squares good points for groat reservoirs of water, and secure places for the storage of goods and household effects in tbejeventof a threatening fire in tbe One of these journals goes so far as to recommend that wo isolate all our buildings by surrounding eaoh of them with a neat, garden and other modern improvements too numerous to mention.

The radiating streets and three-cornered plazas, however, are the feature for which our Eastern friends stickle the most qua non, it seems, of their New Chicago. Now, fortunately (or these Haussmanitcs may esteem it a misfortune), streets arc not burned up. They stand, all through the devastated district, almost the only monument to remind us that there was once a great, city there. These streets have cost us many millions of dollars and they have not only proved worth the money, but bid fair to vindicate their value many times over before wc get the city built again. Supposing the wheel-spoke system of streets to bo the best one, and that our citizens would, have opportunity and grace, amidst alt their other cares of the next five years, to learn how to radiate successfully according to the proposed system, they have hot the money wherewith to put it in operation.

Every important street in the burnt district is well paved and curbed, and not destroyed, as our Eastern contemporaries ccem tollhink. Wc must thank God for this mercy, and proceed to improve it to the best advantage. Indeed, we arc proceeding in this way, for rows of permanent buildings are already rising up in rows, like warriors, all along the old streets. The hints for Haussmanizihg Chicago will, therefore, have to be postponed for the present, or passed along for the benefit of some of the new cities to the westward. Probably the only csseutlal alteration iu the plan of our city which is entirely practicable is that which pertains to the railroad system, and which contemplates a better centralizing of depot facilities.

ERRONEOUS IMPRESSIONS. The New York tribune enumerates, among the causes rendering Chicago an unsafe city tor insurance risks, the scarcity 'in the supply of water. This is erroneous. There was no watcr.on the occasion of the late fire until the pumping works were destroyed; and long before time the fire had passed beyond control, and had already business part of the city. rho fire took place on Sunday, op which day the supplv of water was equal to the capacity of a fire apparatus twice as extensive as our own.

That fire department, under ordinary circumstances, could have kept this fire within very small limits, but the gale and the dry condition of every exposed part of buildings incidental to a long drought defeated exertion. The gale carried the fire in some distances over balfa mile beyond where the firemen were bravely contend- I mg with it, and thus it was burning at several points at the same time, and from each point the wind was bearing.burning brands to cause new conflagrations. The Springfield Republican in an article on the fire, says have now data enough to form a pretty clear idea of how it happened. Given, a city for (he most part built of wood, its wooden pavements soaked with tar, a long drought, and a violent cale of wind." I The for the most part built of we must probably own up to; tbc drought and tbc gale of wind there is no disputing, for they have unfortunately left an indelible record behind them. But tho block pavement cannot reasonably be charged with any considerable measure of blame for the catastrophe of last week.

The block pavement still stands in good order throughout all its long accepting, in a few places, mostly onthe North Side, where it has bcen'scriouslyi injured (nol, by any means, destroyed) by the showers of brands and cinders and avalanches of red-hot bricks which fell upon it. It is doubtful, any stone pavement would have stood the siege better, The heaviest of atone side, walks have, for tho most part, yielded to tho calcining process, and arc total 1 ruins. Our plank sidewalks were simplj' damnable, and served their purpose of 1 trains to carry flames much better than they have ever served as footways for our surging population. These had not been entirely supplanted, even in the best business quarters, and more than one magnifi- cent building was set on fire, by them. It is not probable, however, that any fire was communicated by means of the block pavements.

They are probably the cheap- est pavements for Chicago, and have proved, when laid, decidedly durable through both wear and fire. The stroets composed of them now form a network of smooth thoroughfares through tho burnt district which will prove exceedingly valuable in rebuilding. A WOMAN'S COMMITTEE NEEDED It was inevitable that in the first con: fusion of distribution of supplies to the I sufferers by the late fire there should be a deal of waste, much given to thos.e who were not in need, and mauy whose cessities were the greatest should be left in want Happily, out of this confusion order has arisen, and, under the efficient and i energetic action of committees at head: quarters, these abuses are corrected, and those really in want are taken care of as far as possible. It is, nevertheless, certain that there are many, chiefly women of the better class, in great need both of clothing and food, and who are unable to struggle in the crowd asking for relief, and who shrink from the publicity of the necessary cross-questioning at the committee rooms, and from stating their wants to men. The demand for relief to this class is imperative, for there must be among, those -composing it much hidden Cases of this sort should go to teamen, and wo can conceive of no good reason why there should not be a Committee, acting in conjunction the General Committee, whom all cases of tins sort be referred, or to which ladies." con apply who -would rather sailer than go with a statement of their wants before gentlemen.

There are ladies in the southern section of the city perfectly capable of discharging duties of this sort, who are already devoting themselves to this work, but whose labors will be much more efficient under an official organization acting in conjunction ...8 1.561.619.42 5,006,391.72 951,911.84 809.298.96 626,895.74 1.563,447.62 3,112.590 34 463.039.27 494,317.72 341.882.18 164.923.17 349.062A5 53.852A3 2.042.798.99 with the General Relief Committee, To such a committee special duties may be assigned, as, for instance, the giving out of underclothing, and rules adopted to avoid the duplication of .815,457.063.65 A LAW LIBRARY. The lawyers, or some of them, of Missouri, have despatched to this city a quantity of flour for the benefit of; families of suffering members of the sion. No class is more prompt-to respond in any time great distress than are members of the bar Nearly every lawyer of the all the prominent firms and persons of the their offices in the burnt district of the South Side. Many of them had large and very valuable libraries, the accumulation of years, and all had books, many or few, in their shelves. And, with the Court House, was burned the library of the Law Institute, one of the largest and most valuable public law libraries in all the country.

Its doors were always open, and its books were always at the service of the many lawyers from abroad, who have occasion, almost constantly, to visit There Is probably.not a slngle.collectioh of law books, left in the has to bo called a library. It is doubtful if even in tbo whole city a comr plete set of the Illinois Reports could be gathered together. Wo have no doubt if the profession at largo utter and universal prostration of tho Chicago bar, in regard to: libraries, the bar of the country would only bo too willing to come to their relief, and contribute' dr money toward founding in our city a law library to'repair our loss. The Law Institute, an incorporation under the management of the most reputable and responsible members: of. our bar, would bo the means of making such liberality most secure! permanent, effective, and of the most immediate and general rvice.

Wc arc at a loss to understand what is meant by one of the city newspapers, which says that The Tribune is itself to a speculating scheme in Hyde Park We.suppose that this is a dodge to secure a notice, so that the public may be informed that the said newspaper has at last been resurrected, and is now ready to take a place in the rear of the Ecenuuj Mail in the. work of building up or pulling down Chicago, as the case may be.

Messrs. Colbert and Chamberlin, of The Tnmune, have undertaken to write a full description of the great fire In Chicago, prefaced with a succinct historical sketch of the city. The book will be published by J.

There was a rumor on tno streets to-day that tho Bank of England had raised its minimum rate of discount to per cent, and that tho Bank of Montreal had raised its rata to 9 per cent. Bight-per cent for money in London is equivalent to at 12 or 15 per cent New York, and it is to be hoped this report may not prove entirely correct. But it could not be expected that the enormous losses or Eastern and foreign insurance companies in tho pro in this city would fail to cause convulsions mall the money markets of both America and Europe. The demands upon the insurance companies to pay their 1-sses obliges them to tbnw vast amounts of their seenrities upon the market. Their stockholders also having, in many instances, bat their entire stock the companies.

and having no more income from those sources, aro obliged to sell othor stocks and securities to- ready money. bese amounts precipitated anon the market wipo out the margins ol speculators in stocks and securities, and aggravate tho decline of nnoes, not only of stocks and securities, but of most othcrkinds of property, and large schemes hko that of the syndicate to negotiate tho new 5 per cent loan, will necessarily fail under such rates of interest as are now rumored in London. Tbo scarcity of raooev i London does not result entirely from tho Chicago that event has unquestionably had a great effect in that owing to the flowof tpecio from the Bank of England to tho Continent. Tho Bank of England had Increased its rat" of discount twice during the three weeks preceding the firo, and tbo latter event has only increased tho former tendency of tho London market toward stringency.

One grocery hoos from St. Louis, and a hardware firm from Cincinnati, were looking around today for lots the burnt district, where they propose to buy ground and build, with the purpose of making permanent establishments In lines of trade.

These gentlemen nrsno that many of the mordants of Chicago will not ha able to tro on, that many who will continue will not hare adequate capital to control their former trade, and that consequently the trade of Chicago will to a great extent fall into the hands of firms, composed partly of the members of the ones, who bare lost a great portion of their capital, and partly of new members from other cities with additional capital. It is obvious that there was scarcely ever soch an opportunity for capitalists from abroad to Inrest in established business, and many of them will doubtless arail themselves of the opportunity.
