II is the logical result of the MoKiiiloy tariff, of tin; Shcrma'n silver law, of fostering of trusts, of legislation for the avowed benefit of classes against the masses, of profor- (iico. of tlii 1 rich over tho pour in legislation, and of corrupt combination and bossiMii." Continuing it says: "As a partial reparation for the unjust confiscation of private property caused by the prohibitory liw, wo favor such legislation as will /permit, the manufacture of spirltuou^ and vinous liquors within the stale,I'lhorcby giving to our own people at least equal rights in this respect, with the manufacturers of other slates." The convention was harmonious and much euthuslukm prevailed. Chicago, Aug. 24.—A fire, which in extent of territory covered, is the largest known in this city for many years, began in that portion known as South Chicago about 5 o'clock this afternoon and before brought under control had destroyed over 200 buildings, mostly frame residences, occupied by working men, and rendered many hundreds of people homeless. The fire staked in the three story brick building at the corner of Niuety- first street and Superior avenue, occupied as a residence by William Gilles. It was caused by his daughter, who accidentally upset a lamp while heating a hair cm-ling iron. From there it grew rapidly in volume fanned by a gale from the west, and the flames ate thoir way over block after block of small frame residences until it reached the lake. Within two hours after the fire started it had consumed at least five blocks of the great industrial section of the city. The residents of that portion of the city were in a panic second only to the one which characterized tlie great fire. As the pine structures in which lived workiugimen employed in various mills were levelled by the roaring flames those whose homes had not yet fallen fled with their goods and portable chatels. The streets were blockaded with wagons containing the effects of the frightened (people and men, women and children fled in all directions. Before the few engines in the district could make the slightest impression upon the flames they bounded eastward between Ninetieth and Ninety-first streets in the direction of tho lake. House after house went down and soon the First Methodist and German Lutheran churches succumbed. Hardly had these structures gone than the fire was seen to be blazing in a dozen places farther east. Twenty-five engines were started down from the main portion of the city as soon as possible. The largest fire boat, Yosemite, was also hurriedly started out on a thirteen mile trip to the burning section. 11 Before it readied the harbor at South Chicago the fire had eaten away five blocks between Superior avenue and tho lake, and the Yosemite turned its attention to tho immense lumber yard on the river front. Tho fire sprang from the ruins of Gilles' house to the cottage adjoining on the west. Tlie brands wore carried to the building at the corner of Buffalo avenue and Ninety-first street, one square further west, which soon started to blaze, spreading north and south on Buffalo avenue, while tho original fire raged along Ninety-first street and Superior avenue, soon becoming a perfect tornado of fi:ime. ' One dwelling after another went with fearful rapidity, and after tho churches named above had been destroyed it was soon that the fire must spread to the docks from which it was anxiously desired to keep it. The fears of the firemen wore well founded and before dozens of the engines had made much headway tho immense docks of the Sundy Creek Coal company were- burning. Over 100,000 tons of coal were stored In those I in mouse bins and the fire boat brought to bear all its powerful streams in an endeavor to head off the flames. A few minutes later, however, A, R. Beck's lumber yards wore seen to bo burning and now the real groat battle of the firemen with tho flames began, for they had only by this time succeeded in concentrating a sufficient number of engines to begin to make impression. Shortly after 8 o'clock the, tiro was under control. Most of the buildings destroyed were light frame affairs and occupied almost exclusively by workmen of tho Illinois Stool company. tV conservative estimate puts the aggregate loss in the residence district at. $-100,000. Tho Sunday Crook Coal company's loss will be $250,000, and tho Pock Lumber company's $200,000. Tho number of pooplo who are homeless is variously estimated at from four to five thousand. No lives were lost. Other citizens of South Chicago rallied to relieve tho homeless at once and houses were thrown open Jn all directions to the sufferers. CONGRESSIONAL. Washington, Aug. 22.—In the senate Voorhees made a great speech. Ho paid a tribute to the silver states and arrainged tho national banking system which would soon lie wiped out by the redemption of government bonds. To take their place, Mr. Voorhocs declared for the repeal of the tax on state bank issues. Tills would insure a safe and elastic currency. He questioned the constitutionality of the tax on state banks issues and laid down five proposition embracing a sufficient supply of currency at nil times to moot public wants; destruction of individual or corporate power to cause fluctuations in the different currencies, inter- chaugability of every dollar in circulation, silver money to form its portion of tho specie basis of chartered banks, and the total overthrow of the dangerous centralization of the money power, with states' rights on the subject of money. The debate was continued by Stewart and others. In the house the/silver question was discussed by a dozen members, but nothing notable was said. Washington, Aug. 24.—In tlie senate Mr. Poffer was tlie first speaker on the financial question today. Tlie Loo-Mantle election case went over. In the house the five minutes debate on tho Wilson bill began this morning with a speech by Mr. Waugh, for repeal as in the interest of bi-metalisin. Mr. Seniors favored bi-metalisin but would vote for unconditional repeal. Mr. Johnson spoke for silver. Mr. PIckler criticized President Cleveland as being linger ;English (influence,! Lucas and Hartman spoke'for free coinage and Barthold declaj-ctl for repeal. Houk favored unconditional repeal and Heard spoke against the Wilson bill. Others continued the debate. Washingtu, August 23,— Among the jills introduced in tlio senate was one jy Mr. Pasco of Florida as a substitute for the .minority b'ill of the finance committee (proposing silver coinage at 20 to 1.) The substitute proposes a commission of three citizens of the United States to ascertain and report before January, 1804, the intrinsic relative value of gold and silver, and that on siich report the secretary of the treasury shall fix and determine lie ratio. A resolution offered yesterday by Mr. ?effer (pop.) of Kansas as to the violation of laiw by national banks in de- ling to pay depositors' checks in cur- •ency was taken up and a motion to refer it to the committee on finance .made by Mr. Hoar) gave rise to a long aid somewhat excited discussion in which Senators Voorhees (dem.) of Indiana, Gorman (dcni.) of Maryland and McPherson (dem.) of New Jersey favored the reference. Senators Mander- sou (rop.) of Nebraska, Kyle (pop.) of South Dakota and Hill (dem.) of New York opposed it, and insisted on the idoption of the resolution. Mr. Gor- iiau pointed out. that the adoption of iho resolution would be a notice to tho comptroller of tiho currency, who would mmediately proceed to execute the law and thereby necessitate the closing of ho banks and cause the utter ruin of the country. He thought it well to wait a week or ton days before "pole- ing into that question too much." He had once hoard General Grant s:iy that tho worst subordinate whom a military officer could have was the one who always obeyed orders. Mr. Voorhees (dem.) of Indiana, chairman of the finance counniittee, favored tho reference of the resolution, and promised that It would not bo buried in the committee. Mr. Kyle (pop.) of South Dakota argued against the reference, which he said would only mean tho burying of the resolution. In the course of Ills re- resolution. In tho course of his remarks ho spoke of tlio secretary of the treasury sending information "gratuitously" to senators—referring to Mr. Carlisle's letter as to tlio cost, of a change oif a silver coinage. This insinuation .was taken up by Mr. White (de.ni.) of Louisiana, who asked Mr. Kyle whether ho know that tho sec-rotary had not boon addressed in writing on tho subject. Mr. Kyle had no knowledge on tlio subject. Mr. Vest, however, quoted from tiho letter to show that it was written after a conversation with Mr. Voorlioos. Tho! senator explained that as chairman of the finance committee lie had called upon iho Secretary of the treasury to ask him as to the feasibility of silver coinage at tho ratio of 20 to 1, and after conversation lie had requested him to put his objections in writing. Mr. Hill favored tho immediate pas- sago of tho resolution, and said that this was not a question of patriotism but of business, and if the banks wort; violating tlie laws are people had a right to know it. Ho said ho was as Mciilous in seeking the legislation necos- so;iry to avert calamity as the senator from Maryland, but be did not. see what harm could come from the passage of a resolution asking for infornia- j lion to which they were entitled in order that they might legislate intelligently. Mr. McPhorson was proceeding to oppose tho resolution, tho yeas and 1 nays having been demanded upon its passage, when the hour of 2 o'clock arrived and Mr. Hoar called up tho national bank bill. Silver debute was opened at once by C. AV. Stone (rep.) of Pennsylvania, who spoke for repeal, and abdjured nu.'in'bers to disregard partisan feeling in dealing with the subject. Mr. Dlil/oll (rop.) of Pennsylvania contended for tho repeal of the purchase act, and as-cribed the difficulties of tho present situation to democratic hostility to the tariff. Mr. Covert (dem.) of New York pleaded;for unconditional repeal, and, comparing silver to a fa,ithful servant fallen into 'bad habits, held that nothing would suffice to restore it but the gold cure. Mr. Fitch (dom.) of Now York follow- Wl in the same line. Mr. Hatch (dem.) of Missouri, in sipcaking in favor of free eoiiuge, advocated a caucus of the democrats of tlio house and senate to Interpert the Chicago platform—every man of whom would pledge "his life, fortune, and his sacred honor" to abide by tlie decision. Mr. Guminings of New York, Avho favored repeal, availed himself of the opportunity to enter upon a defense of the New York demotM-acy against the attacks made upon it. by democrats from the south. 'Mr. Turner (dem.) of Georgia was hi fiiivor of the repeal bill, and lie was also In favor of the free coinage of sliver at the highest ratio that had been suggested. SAD-EYED LITTLE AA T OMEN Not tho Potted Ones, but Those Wdio Live in the Poorer Districts. The poverty of our poorest tenement house districts is both better and worse than people Imagine. The touch of personal pride, the love Of decency and order, the gratification In achieving personal distinction—if only the distinction of a. clean apron—these things that color and mold the face of life on Prairie avenue in tho same way effect it on South Halsted street. Tlisvt's what 1 thought as I stopped to look at a group of little girls crocheting on the sidewalk. They were sitting in front, of a door on Ewing street, and tlie -atmosphere of the group was the atmosphere of a tea party. There, wore five of thorn. Two sait in little chairs and Mireo on 'the steps, and they wore all clean, and all had their hair wot and combed as slick if slick hair were Wie fashion. Not one of them looked as old as 10 years, and yet there they sat, er.oehot.ing and gossiping as sedately as if they wore 50. The neighborhood is one of the poorest In town, and on these hot Summer days tho sidewalk is the casino of the poor, and you don't need to stop inside .a house to find out how dark and hard life is down there. On one side, near the little girls, sat a woman In a. torn, dirty cotton gown (and, I am sure, not another garment upon her,) with a death-stricken baiby gasping in her a rails, and in front, of them three boys were fighting for some pieces of watermelon rind that some Croesus had thrown into the gutter, and in tlio midst of a scene of which 1 can merely hint there sat tlie live clean Little girl's crocheting, and thoir work— yards and yards there was of it—was cleaner than 1 ever succeeded In keeping a piece of fancy work In my life. One hud a lot of patterns printed on blue paper, and she was teaching a new pattern to the least of MK? flock. "May I see';" I said. "I used to do a pattern almost like rtiat." At. the first, move toward inspecting thoir work nlie little women .drew back, jJlaiKTd st-owlingly up, and put thorn- solves generaMy on the defensive, but. wihen 1 .spoke as a. sister crocheter and began to talk about, daisy patterns and chiiiln stitches they softened to me. "I've got seven new patterns hero," said thoir proud possessor. "And yon are teaching tho others? That's very nice." "She ain't tcachin' no one but Biddy. She charges." The young i oiuiiiino Napoleon of finance looked closely ait mo with an expression divided between pride in her powers and defiance of mo if I should criticise her use of them. I was not disposed to criticise. I only asked whait Biddy paid for her les- prepm-ations began at. once. The cim™ was near the plantation, but was *SM>. arated from It iby n creek, one of th» innumeraible tributaries John River. At least of the st. twice a some of the young people went over to the •camp in an awkward but roomv old fla,tbottomed boat, ca.rrying various articles Which they supposed would be useful. On one occasion there were four of us going over, and as we -were nearlug the opposite shore young sou. womian in the flm-ty espied 'somo beautiful wild flowers. There was n submerged flog directly in front of the l>niik Where they grow, but as our boat was strong, and she said Mint she would bo broken hearted unless she could have them, wo rowed directly over tlio log, and one of us lo.i.noil out to pick the blossoms. "Suddenly our boat began to .move In n. most extraordinary manner, g 0 lug neither forward'nor backward, font straight up. "Alligator"' shrieked some one and we instantly realized that the supposed log we had seen was in ro- •ality a (living saurian, in far j^ time tiban It. takes to toll It, 0110 of our party had snatched up tho hammer and nails and was using tlie first article to drive the second through tlio bottom of the boat. 'You'll. have to help we must he quick! Take off your shore mid use tho heels as hammers,' ho cried, and realizing tho necessity of • blind obedience, AVC began driving nails too, His intention dawned on us by tho time It had become u. (iulshod action, and we complimented him on his Idea of pinning tho alligator to the boat with nails. "But our prisoner was not plensed and began thrashing the water violently. Again our clever friend came to Wio rescue. "Does either of you wear black stockings?" said ho. Ono of us did. 'Then, sit up In the end of tlio (boat and dangle your feet in the waiter. No, don't put your shoos on. Now swing your feet to <tho right." The yong person followed his directions |anid ; wonderful to relate, the boat moved slowly to the right. Oars •wei-o useless. Tho alligator bore us homo 011 his back, and we showed our gratitude by putting him out of his misery as soon as we could. "But how did you know he'd carry the boat, and why did he go where I steered? And, above 1 all, why were black stockings necessary'/" "Ha.vo you never heard of tying a carrot to the end of a whip and dangling it iln front of a balky horse to make him go? My Idea, was based on Mint You swing your foot in tlie water, and seeing the black hosiery, the 'gator fancied you were his favorite article of diet—a nice, plump little darky. He followed where you led: the nails proventd him reaching you, •though his hide was so tough they Imrt him but little, and certainly didn't interfere with his powers of locomotive as we have seen." M'EN WHO DECEIVE BANKERS Not: tho Man of Good Appearance Who Has the Best Credit. N. A. Painbolt of Norfolk, Neb., who was present at tho world's congress of 1'lna.noo at. Chicago, said to a writer for tho St. Louis (Mobo-Domocrat: "I urn more fearful of tho man.who makes a good appearance than of the other kind. Men who exprv.t to deceive bankers understand how much we have to depend upon looks. 'They prepare themselves accordingly.
