KKW YORK, Jan. 30.—In the hcnpitsl for th« rupiqrwl and crippled at Letington avenun anil Kurty-second street there'are 183 -cripplod children -um!«r treatment. -f About 0:48 Sunday evening the younger of these children were in bod, otliots preparing to retire, aud a few of the older children wore eating their supper In the basement. Two of the lalter, Ixiuisa Fahllg. asjod 1'i, and Mary Qrcely, nged ID, started up-8ta:rs to go to bed. On reaching the .second floor they were suddenly enveloped lij cloud's of smoke. Both children are suffering from Hpinal dlsoase and can walk only with difficulty. Without screaming or manifesting fright In any wuy they hurried as rapidly as possible to the third floor, found a nurse, Ellun Dougherty, and told her the building was on flre. .The nurse tnld them not to tell any of Iho rhildren, and s*nt them to their rooms. Blie than sent word by an nmlatant to Matron Webber, who In turn notified Dr. Gibney, through whom an alarm was sent out. ' As rapidly as possible the doctors, ourae*, police ami firemen, an well as a number of oitl- s-nn, carried Hie children from the bnilding. The guc»!8 in the Vanderbilt hotel opposite pave np tholr roonn, and 14^ ot tbo little saf- fsrors were put. to bed there. -Ths others found shelter. In private houses In the vicinity. There wan much excitement among tbo spectators In the street, among whom It was rumored that Revernl of the children hod been burned to death. Fortunately all the children were romovi-d In nafoty. Meanwhile the firemen fdught the flames, and after a stubborn battle subdued them. The flre had originated hi a bath room on the Drat floor from pome unknown «ausv>. Ths dimdge done Is efotlmatod ut tS.SOO. When tbo fire bad been extinguished tbe lifelem body of Mary Donnely.n cook In th* hospital, 45 years oil, wns found In ber room on the fifth floor, where she bad died from suffocation. It was her day off, . and It wan sup- OO^V- -posed-she«Jiad-Bone-out-to-vislt-friends,™but it appears that she had taken a nap Instead, aud was vuffocatad In her sleep. During the flre Michael McCarthy, the elevator boy, was overcome by smoke and fell Into the elevator pit. He was discovered there by Miss Jessie ijtranger, a young waitress in tbe hospital, who dragged him out Into the air, where he revived. Mlra Stranger also saved the life of James O'Brlop, one of the engineers of tha hospital It was bin day off, and he was asleep in bis room, and wo* already unconscious from smoke whou she ran to his room and by persistent knocking on tbe door roused him in time for bim to eicnpe the fate of tbo unfortunate cook. Little Louisa Feblig was asked after the flre why she did not run away when sha saw the danger. "I couldn't run very fast," she said; I have spinal disease, you know; and, besides, if I hod not told Miss Dougherty she and every one else might have been burned." "What did you do after you told herP "I went into my dormitory and told my chum, Minnie Johnson. She Is a cripple, and can never get out of bed without lining carried. She asked me not to leave ber, and I took bold of hands with her and said I wouldn't But when I saw the smoke beginning to coma up to our floor, and heard every one screaming and shouting 1 felt so afraid that I tried to rat Minnie out of bed so we could get away. But I couldn't lift ber. She told ma j to run and not to mind her, or I would get i burned up. I kissed her good-bye aud ran out, •' but E found a man, who went In and got Jllnnle, and we both got out-" Ten-year old Max Bchwars, who U suffering from hip disease, tried to carry out Johnny Burke, a UtUa deaf and dumb cripple, but tbo burden was beyond his strength. Then he drugged • -Johnny out to the hall, where a. policeman,, foimd them, and! carried , both down stairs. There were many oth««/ ; ^stances ot heroic and unselfish behavior oo the part of the little cripples. • ;, CostlT BUM at PltUburg.

Eugene Tafel, principal o the Fulton Street school, Columbus, O., whi_ bad absconded with fSoO of tbe teachers' money, blew his bralm out, He arrived at the hotel late Saturday night, anfl afte ragnterfng under an assumed name, : was assigned to a room. He breakfasted at a late hour Bunday forenoon and afterward walked up quietly to his room, and a fa minutes later put a bullet Into his brains- right through both tsmplos. Several letters were found in tho room among them one addressed to R«v. Mr Bpahr, president of the Columbus board o education, In which be confessed that he hac lost all the money stolen in gambling. H said there were only two alturnatives—pen! tentlnry or death—nnd he chose the bitter. Tafoi'a family consisted.of a wife and two sons. He was married sir years ago In Colam bns, Ind., and moved thence W Kendallvlllo. He had lived In Columbus since last October and went to that city very highly reoom raondod. The members of the board of edu cation placed implicit confllence In him and never suspected him of boinj addicted to gambling. Tafel left his wife and children utterly destitute, and they are being care< for by Superintendent Stevenson, of tho Columbus schools. Tafel's father and uncle ar* wealthy, nnd Mrs. Tafol'B father-is also well-to-do. MRS. HENDRICKS DISSATISFIED. She Thinks the Memory of the Vlo*-Pr«sl- denl I* Not Kept Green. COTCINNATI, O., Jan. 30.— Mrs. Thomas A Hendrloks, widow of the late vice-president, arrived here Hunday morning f nla, en route' for Indianapolis. She said In answer to a question that she thought Cleva land might. have a strong opponent, ant then proceeded as follows: "I noticed from tho papers, also, since . have been away, that Mrs. John A. Logai and Mrs. Blair have received their pensions from the government. Fortunately lam-in such circumstance* that I do not absolutely require assistance from the nation, but it seems no more than right that similar recognition of the services of my husband be shown. Tha only tender - I have bed of this nature waa of the salary of Mr. Hendrlcks for one year. Tho Democratic party is solely to blame for the slight my husband's name has thus received. It was In tha majority, • and could withou difficulty have shown respect to one of its fallen leaders In some such way. Mr. Hen- drlcks was elected for four years, and bad freely poured out his strength tor tbe good ol tea party. Certainly It would seem that It 1 am entitled to any of his salary It would be for the whole term for which be had enlisted a* vice president." Peorln'i Chamber of Commerce. PEORIA.

TRY ST. CHAIRMAN LEE AND OTHERS MORE FULLY ANSWER CORBIN. A Baltimore Meeting Told the True wardnwui of the Beading Strike— Jtutifr- 1ns; Both the Railroader* and the Miner* —Impntatlon That the Railway Official* Have I»«m Very Tricky and glnaons. BALTIMORE, Md., Jan. 80.—A large and enthusiastic mooting of workingman was held at tbe Front street theatre Bunday af ternoon in aid of tho Philadelphia & Reading railroad and coal strikers. Jerome Mui phy, el Baltimore, presided. Mown. John L. Lae, of Philadelphia, chairman of thS exocu- tire committee of the Reading railroad em- ployes; .John H. Davis, of Mount Carmel, Pa., chairman of the joint committee representing the railroader* and the miners, and Hugh McGarvey, of Beaver Meadow, Pa., of tbe Joint committee, addressed tha assemblage. Tha sum of (467.11 was contributed to the relief fund, and the varioui local es- •emblles will take the matter up and en- dsavor to rain*, a large fund In aid of the strikers in Pennsylvania. Th* first speaker waa Hugh McGorvay. His speech was a general denunciation of the employers who were getting rich out of the sufferings of tbe miners, and by manipulating the legislature* were able to "fasten their grip upon the throats Of their workmen." The strike was to decide the fat« of organized labor hi a country that boasted o! it* liberty. J. H. Davis devotod his address to a consideration of the contract between the minors and the Beading company. He said the con tract did uot bind tha miners to continue working after Jan. lat the I2..W basis. It was only made for four months, and tbe miners were perfectly at liberty to demanc 'what they chose after tha 1st Inat, The company itself bad Insisted on : terminating the contract Jan. 1, as the receiver* could not make an agreement for a later date, for by that time they would bo out ot office. Hn charged Corbin with omitting in his copy ol the contract, published in both hll statements, the words "and this agreement is to terminate Jaa 1, 1868," and characterized this omission as a base and glaring attempt to deceive tha public. Chairman Lea made tha principal speech, anSlnlE supplementecFTns "clrculaif issued some days since In answer to Corbitf, and published in those dispatches. He said thai Corbin had begun rigid economy as soon as he got hold of the road, and everything was cut down. In the machine shops twenty-five men had been discharged, and thirty-five men required to do the work of sixty; train crews had been reduced 40 per cant and twenty cars added to each train, while men who had grown gray In the service bad been turned out of place. The men had then organized, and this had resulted in a plot between Corbin snd others to break, up the Knights of Labor. Tha Reading officials had encouraged the Lehlgh . strlka, while pretending to the Lehigh proprietors that they were against It. In this connection he sold be had been appointed to aid tb* Lehlgb striken and bad reported to Sweigard off duty, at tbe same time telling him what he was going to do—go to Pottsvllla and open an office to obtain aid for the Leblgh.strikers. Bweigard willingly gave him leave of absence for that purpose, telling him It would be of great bsnafit to tha Reading. A month later Lea returned to work, but Sweigard said to himi "Go back to Pottavllla. Tbe Reading has made more money In the past two month* than ever before. Tbe Leblgh operators have laid plans to crush ogantied labor there, and tbe longer tbe strike continue* tha more money tbe Reading will make out of It.* ' Shortly after this tba joint committee waited upon President Corbin, In tha preianc* of Manager McLeod and tbe general solicitor, to Induce him to use bis influence In bringing about a settlement of tha difficulties in Leblgh. Corbin claimed that the Knights of Labor ware Interfering with tha company's business in refusing to, handle the "scab" coal of Fardee Sc Cox. Parenthetically, Lee explained that tha convention at Bhamokln had resolved not to handle! on tb* Reading railroad any "scab" coal mined in Leblgh. The general solicitor then quoted law on the subjeo. "We were peaceable and law abiding citizen*,* continued Leo, "and when we discovered that we were doing somothing even bordering on a violation of tha law, we ordered the coal removed." A few days after thU.Corbin sant for Bernard J. Bbarkey, one of th* K. of L. lights, and Informed him that ha wa* negotiating with Maxwell,, of tbe Janay Central,-rand Harris, of the Lehlgh, and was trying to secure a settlement for the Lehlgh miners at 8 per cent, over tba (3.50 basis. "All this time,' cald Lea, "Corbin wa» playing a double tamo. While negotiating with our uecu- tive board ha wa* conniving with the iLeblgh operators to inaugurate a strike on Jim. 1 to break np the K. of L. There was a convention of Lehlgh and Reading monopolist* in New York on Deo. 23/and tbe result ot the deliberations was that Corbin should force the fight on tha Reading. Ho began by forcing the rfnployea at Port Richmond and Elfzabetbport to handle *scab' material, and they refusing, were discharged." "I am willing to admit," said the speaker, "that there was a mistake nmdo In refusing to handle It, but lam not willlug to! admit Jut ha (Corbin) did not violate article 18 of tha agreement mode a year ago, which provided that every employe should hava on impartial bearing bufor* being discharged, and if using to negotiate with this committee." Proceeding Lea 'said that after tha five crews had beau discharged at Port Richmond the executive committee was called together, and it was concluded that, under the Leblgh circumstance*, It was unadvlsable tA^frlke on ha Reading, and that there wo* not sufficient cause to jeopardize the, business Interest* of the community, went to Philadelphia with Bernard Sharkey on December M to see Superintendent Bweigard. When we entered) Swat gard's office and had made known to pjm tha' object of our visit, Bweigard saldi • You wouldn't coma, only you know you are watea I have outgeneraled you." Sharkey made some remark bare, when Sweigard •aid: "You are a liar, a d—d liar; tba truth not In yon; yon are beaten." Leo then old Sweigard that ha hod coma to make an unconditional surrender. Sweigard said h» would discharge Sharkey and Ambrose leath, tha Mast«r Workman of No. 6,385. je» then agreod to send an order out, direct- no; tba men to return to work, bis agreement with Swalgard being, that, with tba oxcop- ion of Bhwkey, Heath and the flu Port llchmond craw*, whom tha K. of L, would oar* for, all tha man reporting for duty oo tba morning of Dacambar 27 should be «m- *jy«d Laa taut out hU tBlegram*. but those of tb»m addrewd to loading and actlr* member* of th* raQrowl or- :^vkm, and whom U» company wanbml o bo rid of, did not reach them nnd! twoaty- atw hours after th«y bad beau fll*l.

Lee said Sunday night that he and his colleagues would visit Washington and endeavor to enlist the president of the United Rtates on the roll of those who are trying to make the Reading company submit to arbitration.

WABHIIJOTON Crrr, Jon. SO.— A pie* for the rejection of the proposed extradition treaty- between— th*—B,ussian_and__X3 r olt»<| States governments ha* beau sent to Senator Joseph R. Hawley, and Mr. P. B. Heath, a newspaper correspondent of~ tbisi city, by Bergios M. Stopniak. the Russian exile, Kl< hiliit and revolutionist, now located in London, whom these . gentlemen met in Rassla last summer. . 8tepnlak makes a special request that the matter be laid before tb« senate committee on foreign relations, and It is considered one of the strongest if not mort violent argument* that could be made against an alliance between this and th* Buaaian government*. Btepinak, who 1* a noted author, lays down as bis text that It is the rule with all civilised nations that nobody can be condemned with out being heard In his defense, and that the projected extradition treaty with th* Russian government, if ratified by the American senate, will be a wholesale condemnation to cap* ital punlubntont, and worse, of any number of Russian patriotic people, designated a* HI- hlllits, who may seek refuge from the despot- Ism of the ccsr. Be oompam ths : Nihlliitlo party in Russia with the Irish Nationalists or home rulers. To* Russian* want : to overthrow the cxar's oespotlsm, to break the yoke of the autooratio bureaucracy, and to establish a national representative assembly or a government by the people — an objsct similar to that which the Irish an striving for In their native country under the title of home rule, and which, Stepntak say*, receive* th* plaudit* of the American people. He calls attention to the fact that the work of tba Nihillita, or revolutionists. In Russia 1* .similar to that of the home rulers in Ireland, and aays they an granted much lee* latitude than the subjeot* of Great Britain, and for advocating free speooh and free education, and a. change In the form of government, they are _axlled._b> JSIberla. or executed like criminals of the most brutal type. He holds that the United States government would be a party to these oppressions and crime in the name of the cxar of Russia if it formed the alliance contemplated in the extradition treaty to come before the senate. To show that the Instinct* of American dtj- cens naturally turn against the oppression in Russia, BMpnlak .cite* the fact that nearly all Americans who visit the dor's country become sympathizers with the revolutionist* there, and not only write and speak against Russian despotism, but actually tender outside assistance. Should tha treaty be ratified, therefore, it would be In opposition to all Americans who understand it* meaning, and through ignorance on the part of the senate. Many, citation* from history and . newspaper accounts, and the official report* of. Russian officials are nude, showing that the political offenders which this treaty Is Intended to take from tba United States to the parent country an tried before military , courts without having either counsel or witnesses, and that there are discriminations in trial* and punishment of th* most cruel order against poopl* who take Issue with the present form of government over those who commit murder and crimes of the baser sort ; that while the murderer is given a jury trial, the man who advocates education, or change in th* form of goTernment 1* tried before a court-martial, and denied all tha right* of counsel, witnesses, etc., and the accused is even denied th* name of the accuser, and 1* ' prevented from even proving an alibi He hold* that the present oppression and form of government an maintained only by force of the military, and the •zeroiM of the most unreasonable, obstinate and free us* of crown power. , To* benefit* to be derived from the treaty, be says, are all on- the side of tha Russian government, inasmuch as criminal* from the United State* can not gain admission to Russia under the present order of things, and then con bo no more effect on the part of the United State* in securing the ratification of tb* treaty than Indorsing the tyranny of the ctar. Btepnlak declares that regicide and political assassination in general an not the only form of activity of the Russian rebels or Nihilists. They publish and circulate clandestine paper* and pamphlet*, and th* effective men and women do not defend the principle of «"-lntn- atlon, Under :th* present *y stem of censorship the public press of Russia can not give utterance to anything showing th* oppressive aotaof the government, and-whlle th* European paper* an indignant at the barbarous suppression by tb* Cossacks' whip* and tha butt end* of soldiers' guns, of th* par*, scholarly disturbances in the Russian nnUersitie*, and the killing of several disarmed student*, the Russian paper* an not allowed to say anything about it Girls of 17 and 15, and toys of 14 years of age an exiled to Siberia because their brother* wen killed by th* gendarme*, and it 1* expected that the younger one* of the families an likely to sympatbla with them. The faintest supposition of sympathy with revolutionist* 1* sufficient to condemn to death or exile any one. • In concluding hi* long and vigorous argument against th* ratification, Mr. Stepinak lays: "After being first to proclaim the right of rebellion, will you be first to assart at the and of a century the divine right of king* and *mperon to trample down all that men hold mosc sacred I for thi* 1* UM only syrodpolnt Irom which rebellion in any form 1st blanta- bU la Rausia of to-day.
