The Greeks promptly occupied strong positions on the mountain range overlooking Do- inoskos.

Tho managers of the baaanr i-ad arranged tlic stalls so as to represent rt street Oi old Paris, and it had just been opened. The proceeds of the sales at each stall were devoted to a separate charity. The stalls were presided over by wel; known society ladies. Although *t= alarm was sent out with reasonable promptness, the whole wooden structure waa blazing before the fireman could approach the bazaar. The rooi and almost the whole building collapsed. falling fupoti the unfortunate people, many of whom are supposed tt have! previously succumbed to tht stifling smoke. A panic ensued and n great mass of humanity hurled itsell at the exits, through which it was unable to escape. Scores were trampled under foot and left to be burned tc death. The structure burned rapidly and the firemen were powerless to stay the flames. The -scene was the most appalling. According to the latest reports 11G corpses has been removed tc the Palais de d'lndustrie, while it is believed many yet remain in the ruins. Nearly all of these bodies are unrecognizable, the heads of most of them being burned off. The list of injured number 180.

CHICAGO, May 7.—In a Washington dispatch to the Times-Herald, Walter Wellman says war between the senate and'housc of representatives is foreshadowed by the revision of the taritt bill made by the senate committee on finance. The bill reported to tho senate contains 1,200 changes from the. Jingley bill. The members of the louse ways and means committee arc angered at the manner in which the bill has been torn to pieces and charge that it has been done in wan- :onness. It is charged that the controlling principle which actuated the members of the house committee—that the country not only needed more revenue, but more protection, has been deliberately reversed and that the senate committee made so many reductions in its revision' of the various schedules that at'the end it' found it necessary to go into the internal system for the revenue which had been thrown away from the custom duties. This explains the appearance of an increase in the tax ujioii beer from SI tc SI.-14 a barrel, and it also explains the imposition, at the eleventh hour, of u duty upon tea. ''Senators Allison, and Aldrich, who are more directly i'e- sponsible for the revision than any other senators," says the dispatch, ''declare their faith in their ability to have the act upon tho statute books by the JSt of Julyj the day on which the law is set to go into elYect. Whether or not they will bo. able to ranke good this prediction remains to be seen, but it must be borne in mind that the sen- ute revision of the bill has been framed with a direct view to speedy action in the senate. • It has been twisted about to meet tho peculiar conditions which exist in that body, and Senators Allison and Aldrich generally know what they are about."

AVis., May 10.—Willinm Pouch Frirlfly morning killed Alexander Harr ind fatally wounded Mrs. Harris, Ne^soli Metloit, a farm hand, and Helen A*e8bitchv a servant. The murderer then pillaged the house and leisurely rode away on his bicycle. Harris was a well-to-do farmer, living five miles from here, and was reputed to keep large sums, of money ill his house at times. Pouch \vorked for him last summer for a short time, and is supposed to have had knowledge o£ the hiding place Used by Harris. Thf. house shows that he had made a very thorough search for money. He came to tho placa on a bicycle, and, being warmly greeted, asked if he might remain all night. He slept with McHolt. When tho men arose in the morning he also got up and went with them to the barn, saying he would help them do the morning chorea. He shot both of tho men from behind while they were milking in the barn, and the reports of the revolver were not heard nt the house. Harris died instantly, with two bullets in his brain. McHolt waa shot in the head and neck, and fell, apparently dead. Ptnich threw the. bodies into a manger, put some refuse over them, and then laid a nice top dressing of clean hay over it all. Ho returned to the houso with a smile on his face and talked pleasantly with the women. He asked that they get his breakfast ready before the ;ncn came from the barn, as he wished to got an early start on his wheel. At first Mrs. Harris refused, but the young man was BO good-natured that he wheedled her into consenting. He ate heartily, praising the coffee and the cooking. When he had finished he rose with a laugh at some^ remark' the girl, drew his revolver and fired point blank in her face. Before Mrs. Harris could escapes he had turned and brought her down with ;>. bullet in the head. The wounded girl tried to rise from the floor am Pouch fired another shot at her, striking her in tho back. As both women lay quiet lie though* they were done for and began to scare! for money and jewelry. AVhile at worli he saw the girl, who had regained consciousness, dragging herself out of the doorway. He followed her and placet 1 her on the collar stairs. Then lie stepped back a few paces .ami shot her in tho'lveait; 1 She'dropped forward:and.he left her for dead. He searched the house a while longer and then leisurely rolled his wheel out to the road. He hesitated for a moment, as :t man does before mounting after a hearty meal, and then, vaulting into the saddle, rode slowly away. He was seen by Nelson McHolt, tho hired man, who had revived sufficiently to drag himself out of tho manger whcii'O he had been thrown with the body o£ Farmer Harris. Desperately v.'oimdcd and satisfied that he had not long to live, McHolt crawled out to the and dragged himself In tho dust to the farmhouse of .Jacob Wagner, 100 yards away. He fainted when he finally attracted the attention of AVagner, but revived enough to tell his story and give tho name of the murderer. Help was at. once summoned, ami McHolt was carried to the house of AVagner. In the home of Harris were found Mrs. Harris and Helen A r esbach, the hired girl. Both were unconscious. The girl was fatally injured, with three wounds in her head. Mrs. Harris also was wounded in the head. McHolt cannot, live. As soon as the wounded were cared for the farmers camo flocking in, and soon there was a squad of mounted men in pursuit'Of the murderer.
