Almost all of the Victiins are of Polish nativity and Etebf aic extraction, and many of the injured Were taken to their homes by friends, tendering it almost impossible to get a complete list at this time. House Was Densely Packed. The theater, which is probably the oldest in the city, was filled from pit to dome with people who had assembled to listen to Hebrew opera, which has been given in the old house twico a week for the past month. The ticket office receipts show that over 2,700 tickets had been sold when, at 8 o'clock, the sale of seats was stopped because there were no more left. General admission tickets were sold, however, after this, and it is supposed that there were at least 8,000 people within the walls when the curtain went up on the first act. As the capacity of the house is less than 2,600 the density of the crowd may be imagined. Ten minutes after the curtain rose one of the attendants went up to the second tier to light a gas jet which appeared to have been extinguished.

The latter contended that the raids on the treasury cotild be stopped if thesecre* tftry Would use his discretion to redeem notes iii silver whett. the reserve Was threatened. In the Republican ranks, also, there developed such bitter oppo* sitiontothe bill as originally drawn and to the propdsition to force the bill to a vote at once that the Republican members of the committee on ways atid means incorporated in it an amend' toent specifically declaring that nothing in the act should'be construed as a Modification or Hepeal of the act of 1B78 for the reissue of the greenbacks when redeemed! The com* mittee on rules also extended the limit of debate, but declined to give the members of the house opportunity to Offer amendments. The feature of the day was a strong speech from Mr. Johnson (Rep., Cal.) appealing to his Republican colleagues to vote against the bill. He scored the Republican leaders for bringing in the bill. He said he had voted for the revenue measure under protest, but he refused to follow them on the present bill. Political expediency which involved a surrender of principle, he declared, would never succeed. The principal speeches were made by Messrs. Diugley (Me.) and Grosvenor (O.), Republicans, and Messrs. Warner (Ga.) and Patterson (Tenn.), Democrats. INDIANS. totttlfi* Cliillzed. Mftj. James MdLaughHn, one of thfc ftte government inspectors of the Indian tribes, has ebine to Washington. He has been in thfe Indian service for twenty-five years. He speaks the Siou* language with fluency, and has a fair knowledge of the languagfeR of several other nations. "Generally speaking," he said, "the Indians are progressing well in the ways of civilization. The Sioux number a little over 20,000 in the two Dakota*. In 1881-1891, the years which marked their abandonment of hostilities, they decreased in population about 15 per cent. Now they are beginning to slightly increase. At several of the agencies, notably Standing Rock, Devil's Lake and Sisseton, there has been of late a marked change in this direction, and at other ag-encles the tendency toward decline has been arrested. There is ho fetxr now of the extinction of the race, but a century hence there will doubtless be very few full-blood Indians. "The Sioux are adopting the habits of civilization. Their young- women are being trained to make good housewives. There will be no more Indian outbreaks. Of all the tribes the Sioux were the most warlike and aggressive, and they arc now thoroughly reconciled to the United States government." 31,1605, the schedule printed below hensive guide to the best and fno'st' detft* able route to Atlanta froia the norin &h& northwest, Chicago, Indianapolis, tftiicltt*' n»H,, Louisville, St. Louis, Terre tianteV and Evansville. • Palace day coaches and Pullman sleep* ing cars are attached to all trains showfl in this schedule. Extremely low rates have been made to Atlanta and return, via the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis railway. All trains run solid between Nashville and Atlanta, except train in last column, the train in third column, which leaves Cin* cinnatf at 4:30 p. m., runs solid to Atlanta. This is the route of the famous "Dixie flyer" through "all the year round" sleeto- ingcar lino between Nashville, Tenn, 4 and Jacksonville, Fla. W4 •>M Wl HER DOWRY, Payi CLEVELAND DOESN'T LIKE IT. As he turned the cock and applied a match, the light flared up and it was seen that there was no tip to the burner. The jet was well down toward the stage on the left side of the house, in plain view of the greater part of the audience, but as the glare from it showed against the wall some one in the gallery shouted, "Fire, fire, fire." In an instant there was a mad scramble for the door, in -which the whole audience took part. The vanguard of the terror stricken multitude reached the entrance on Front street, pushed on by the howling, shrieking mob behind them. The steps leading from the entrance are but about five feet high, but the landing at their base is narrow. Down these the frenzied people hurled themselves in the Frightful Struggle to Reach Open Air, and to escape' the certain death they thought was behind them. As the crowds from the two doors, one on the right, the other oh the left, reached the landing, they met. There was a brief struggle and then some one lost his footing and fell. In a moment fhe crowd, pushed with irresistible force from the rear, crowded upon the prostrate forms, and began in turn to stumble and reel, and presently to fall prone upon the floor under the thousands of feet coming like a herd of frightened buffaloes from behind. In less time than it takes to tell it the landing was packed SO or BO deep with the panic stricken multitude, and the hundreds behind them were struggling over each over to reach the street. Said to Be Much Opposed to the New Bond Bill. WASHINGTON, Deo. 28.—-It is understood the president and his advisers strongly oppose the house bond bill. Aside from the objection that the bonds are to be redeemed in coin instead of gold, it is understood that the requirement that they are to be sold by subscription is disapproved. The experience of the government, it is said, with sale by advertisement, shows the ineffectual character of this means of protection to the gold reserve. On former occasions it has resulted in heavy withdrawals of gold in excess . of imports where under sale to the syndicate very few withdrawals were made for export during the life of the contract. Again, in these advertised sales individual subscriptions only amount to a small per cent of the total, the balance going to banks and other institutions. The ability of the government to float any great amount under the terms of the pending bill is also 1 questioned. The 1925 4 per cents now net the purchaser, over;8; per cent and the administration therefore does not'-believe short term 8 per cent bonds can be sold at par. Physical Points of the Girl Who 810,000,000 for a Duke. All gossips and society writers agree that the dowry of the A: ierican duchess of Marlboroug-h-to-be will amount to $10,000,000. The newspapers have been full of Vanclerbilt and Marlborough matter, and before the happy day comes and goes what the public won't be told won't be worth knowing. One journal measures, weighs and sizes up Miss Consuelo thusly: Age, 18; height, 5 feet 6 inches; color of hair, black; eyes, dark brown; eyebrows,delicately arched; nose, rather slightly retrousse; weight, 116y 3 pounds; foot, slender, with arched instep; size of shoe, No. 3, AA last; length of foot, 8«/ 3 inches; hand, delicate, with tapering fingers; size of glove, 5%; length of hand, 6 inches; waist measure, 20 inches; length of skirt, 44 inches; face, somewhat oval; complexion, clearest olive, with rosy cheeks; mouth, small and without character; lips, full, an-1 describing a Cupid's bow; accomplishments, music, painting, languages; chief accomplishments, none; ears, small and close to the head; head, well- rounded and well poised; favorite sport, tennis; favorite exercise, bicycling. This is getting at the sweetgirl's points, says the Pittsburgh Dispatch, after the manner of race horse reporters. tPAINTS WITH HER FEET. oirtt- ass A e • BS '•** • oo aaa £ Aft ays aa *** "3'5'5 Srtsf t> > > bfrfc"^ Penns Penns Penns Lv Chicago IJv Indianapol Ar Louisville . • o a> cISS tDf>> 2*3 — cj O OhM > t> ^ 1J<I titiU Ac! d S BSE 0,0,0, bfcifc; e!

A' dozen, policemen, attracted by the shrieks of the frightened crowd, hurried to the scene, and, using their clubs on those outside, pushed through the door and to the writhing mass on the landing. The officers dragged out the prostrate ones, passing them to those on the sidewalk. Ambulances carried the dead to the morgue and the wounded to the hospitals, When the mass on the landing had been cleared the frightened mob inside were quieted down sufficiently to enable the police,to clear the theater. Then it was found that there had been no danger and that not a soul would have been injured had the audience remained seated. r giving gist of penpal H tjire, ,are' ahne w subscription price,-, ' " from 'thiiT'&partnjtnt?, thf ,$itorlil j ^J, Qt thS RlYUIW "" °-""-"•- '---' in Kj»tjtgAJWuin* WS^tWrigmgiitewvM'te «** < an fiTOMapj§ $rpn}?J§<^f <jh§ bappgnjnp pf tlie'thirty'to lust past, 'iKR ' o| +t«»™— -'--« - ; * *^ "* ' >S ^«' •• Already Nine bodies were taken to the morgue •"•all of them dead from suffocation, Of those taken to the pity hospital J5 are dead,, Two move will -probably die before morning and 10 are desperately h,wt, Ttye confusion at both places is indeaqyibaWo and so far but 18 of the dead/have beenidentifted, - A-s has been stated, all' the 4e»d and mjweti aje Polish Hebrew?, and few O f tbeia haye friends p.r relatives who are able, t fp§ftfe Jhe English, language eufl|oi§ ft tj weivto -mates themselves wa The dea4 are of all *0w ( from, fan||.|Q grey hgadf<J B^efl, $$ were, tailed, or i»tee4 ia tee The New Bond Issue Will Bo Very .

The Pngillstlo Champion Leading to Gay a I,ife. CHICAGO, Dec. 29.—A special to The Times-Herald from New York says: Among sporting men here the report is current that James J. Corbett, the erstwhile champion pugilist, has good reason'for quitting the prize ring. It is said that he is physically unable to stand a severe course of training, and that should he re-enter the ring he would be a "mark" for any class heavy weight,v According to a friend of Cor-' bett, the big fellow is going the same road traveled by poor Jack Dempsey. The first to recognize the trouble is said, to have been "Billy" Brady, who is now on his way to Australia, Bi-ady, it is said, knew that Corbett's. method of life was the cause of his trouble, and a year ago warned him that's, physical as well as a mental collapse would be inevitable jfhe did not face ^quarely about, letters in which Qoybett aoknpwjed his mistakes are said, to, be in existence.

London has ; in Mile. Aimee Rapin a portrait painter' of .exceptional merit. She was born Without arms, but, encouraged by a wealthy patron to develop a latent artistic instinct, she attended technical sichools, and in the course of time became proficient in the use of brush and palette, which, of course, she holds'and wields between her toes. She was born in Switzerland and took several prizes at the art school of Geneva. She exhibited a portrait in Berlin in 1891, and in the spring- of 1893 went-to London. For some weeks she Rave herself the study of Rembrandt and Vanclyck in the National •fi-aJJcry. Then she painted the portrait of Princess May, wife of the duke of York, and it created a distinct sensation. Commissions from members of the English aristocracy followed, and when it finally bectnne known that the artist was without hands or arms her work became still more appreciated because of the almost insurmountable dif- ficullies she had overcome jn her career. She established a btuclio in London, which became at once a fashionable resort, Her portraits arc remarkable for simplicity and are modern in tone ar.d conception. Cettcs-Th;in 3 Pollcoiaan.
