Loss Estimated at Between $100,000 and $150,000. Xew York, July 9. A fire which broke out this morning in Pabst's Loop hotel at Coney Island caused great excitement in the seaside resort, and fears for the safety of "the island" were felt. Four alarms were turned in. There were 200 employees and guests in Pabst's L,oop hotel, and they made a tjuick flight. The flames leaped to Vauderveer's hotel, adjoining, in which there were 100 guests, who tied to the Mreet. The Brooklyn Rapid Transit station caught fire next, and a high wind carried the flames toward City park. Later the wind shifted, and the fire assumed dangerous proportions. The Culver line depot of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit blazed up, shutting oft traffic'. Fire Chief Lally made a flying trip to Coney Island in his automobile, covering the distance from Brooklyn in twelve minutes. Immediately upon arriving at the scene of the Are he turned in the fourth alarm. The wind died down to some extent, and the firemen were able to extinguish the blaze la the Culver depot and later in Vanderveer's hotel. This latter structure was damaged to the extent of $30,000. The fire was put under control and confined to Pabsf'a Loop hotel, which building will be a total loss. Chief Lally estimates the damage at between $100,000 and $150, - )()(. Pabst's Loop hotel is owned by Frank H. Clayton and consists of a lliree story building and dance hall covering the better part of a block. Sir. Clayton says that sixty guests registered at the hotel, and he does not know whether all escaped or not. It is not believed that any lives were lost. HITCHCOCK AND SHELDON. Chairman and Treasurer Respectively of Republican Committee. Hot Springs, Va., July 9. Frank H. Hitchcock of Massachusetts is the chairman of the Republican national committee and manager of the national campaign, George H. Sheldon of Xew .York is the treasurer of the national committee, and Arthur I. Vorys of Ohio Is the member of the national committee In charge of the Ohio Republican headquarters, which are to be in Cincinnati. This is the result of the meeting of the executive committee of the Republican national committee here with Mr. Taft. The designation of Mr. Vorys to be in charge of the national campaign in Ohio is regarded as a solution of the embarrassment arising from the selection of Mr. Hitchcock in preference to Mr. A'orys. By this arrangement the campaign in Ohio will be in a sense separate from the balance of the country. Vorys will be accountable only to Mr. Taft. Sherman Not So Well. Utica, X. Y, July 9.

ATTACK TRADITION OF STATE HOUSE Story of Bell Ringer Who Tolled First Peal of .Liberty Discredited Be - ' fore Sons of Revolution. (Philadelphia Press.) Another historical tradition, that of the old ringer of the Liberty Bell on the day the Declaration of Independence was signed, received a jolt last night, and, as a result, the grave of W.illiam Hurry, in the cemetery of the Old Pine Street church. Fourth and Pine streets, will go unmarked, for the present - at least. According to tradition. Hurry was the man who tolled the beJl on July 4, 1776, but at a meeting of the Phil adelphia chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, held last night at Belmont mansion, Clarence P. Wynne the secretary of the chapter, read a report which concluded with a recommendation that the proposed marking of thv, grave be postponed because of the lack of any but traditional evidence that Hurry was the man, or that the bell was rung at all. If the bell was tolled, according to Mr. Wynne, it must have been done by Andrew MacNair, who was doorkeeper on that date and who, according to the records, was succeeded by William Hurry.

The Pennsylvania delegates led the demonstration in the convention yesterday afternoon for the Nebraskan candidate. When the Bryan banner was carried to the presiding officer's platform, A. V. Dive'.y, of Altoona, and A. L. Raker, of Tioga county, pulled the standard of Pennsylvania from ju fastenings on the floor and rushed with it down the aisle and they were the first to mount the platform and display the name of their state, at the outset of the demonstration. They followed the Bryan banner wherever it went and none of the Oklahoma or other frantic and veiling worshippers of the sage of Lincoln from the wilds of the west was less enthusiastic or less demonstrative than these representatives of the solid Keystone State. In one of the mad rushes to get New York to allow her standard to be displayed in the liryan procession this pair of Pennsylvania liryan shouters ctasneu witn tne dele gate from the Empire State who was guarding its standard. Baker still insists that he had no idea of trying to tear the New York standard away from its custodian and declares that he was simply trying to place the Pennsylvania standard next to that ot New York, nut te tins as it mav. the New Yorkers believed thai an attempt was being made to either knock down or carry away tne ensigu ;md there was a prompt resentment shown. Striking: out right from the shoul der. Delegate C. J. White, of New York city, landed a telling blow on Maker's breast, which nearly sent him and the Pennsylvania standard to the floor. Delegate W. P. Kirk, of Syracuse, who was next to White, threw his bodv asainst the liryan throng and sent the line of standard bearers tumblins over each other up tne aisle, and the Pennsylvanians went along with them. The New Yorkers had no further trouble with the Pennsylvania con tingent of the liryan rooters, witn his hands encased in kid gloves, Mr. White held firmly to the brass rod upon which the sign of his state was planted, ever ready to meet any shouter who might try to take it. In the midst of the hurrah, a delegation" of a dozen women from Oklahoma crowded around the New York standard, trying to capture it, but Mr. White, politely , but firmly, held them in check. Just across the way was the New Jersey delegation, which, with its 16 Gray votes to four liryanites, stood like a rock against the liryan wave that was sweeping over the convention. Several attempts were made to take away the standard, but in the strong grasp of W. li. Oonnel!. and wl'h the backing of Chairman Kat - zelbach and others, it was not molested. Alternate Delceate James Martin, of Union county, sought to get at the standard, but he was shoved aside so vigorously that he made no further effort to try it again. The Oray men of Delaware massed about their sign and no one dared to touch it. The Georgia delegation, which is for Gray, made a pretty picture as a - dozen delegates grouped around their standard, and throughout the entire Hryan demonstration held on to the pole and made it apparent that they would resent any attack, with force, if need be. Once a Bryanite knocked down the Connecticut standard, but he was quickly thrown back into the aisle, and, like that of Minnesota, this standard held its place through the demons. ration.

After Colonel Guffey had been informed that the credentials committee had unseated eight delegates from Philadelphia, classed as his supporters, he made the following s.atement. "Pennsylvania's delegates came .to this convention, elected under the statutes of Pennsylvania, their election being certified not alone by the commissioners of the dis.rict, but by the secretairy of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Not a shadow of complaint was made as to any of these delegates. This delegation was certified to the National Commit.ee by the chairman and secretary of the State Central Committee of Pennsylvania. Notice of contests in a few dis.ricts was filed with the National Committee. A sub - committee of the National Committee was appointed, and a full and absolute hearing given these contestants. "The sub - committee reported unanimously in favor of the certified delegation. The National Committee as a body unanimously adopted the report of the sub - committee and this action made the right of Pennsylvania in the preliminary organization absolute. Nothing could question their right to sit and participate in the business of the convention. The delegation, prior 10 the. meeting of the convention, caucused for the purpose of organization, 4 7 out of a total of l8 participating. "I was made chairman of the delegation, and members of the various committees for the convention were appointed. 1 was elected member of the National Committee. Notwithstanding all this regularity, the temporary chairman of the National Convention refused to permit Pennsylvania's delegation to take part in the deliberations of the convention, or on its committees, thereby disfranchising the sovereignty of a great state." .
