PRICE ONE CENT U ilfl ROASTED IN TIIEIR STILLS. m TWENTY nORSES BURNED TO DEATH DJ WEST F0RTM3GHT1I STREET. A Stable Containing Fifty Horses Takes Fire from Spontaneous Combustion Thirty Horses Saved and the Kest Suffocated and Darned Forty Carriages In the Second liotl Destroyed Panic in a Tenement. Twenty horses were Irarnod and ouffocatod to death early this morning in tho under- ground stalls of Edward lUley's boarding end livery stablo, 318 and 320 West Forty- - eighth stroot, which caught flro from an un- - explained cause, and which was almost wholly destroyed. At U o'clock last night ltiloy loft thostablo In ohorgo of night-watchma- n, Oeorgo Brown, and an hour later a toam was driven oat by ono of tho rognlor Otablers. At. 1.15 o'clock this morn- - ,ing Browji, who was cleaning harness 'on tho first floor, was startled by a strong smell of smoke and crackling as though of ''burning hay and timbers. An instant later he saw names bursting through tho basement windows. , Tho flro started in tho bnsemont and had trained groat headway. Without thinking of 'the unfortunate animals tied up in tho pit. Brown rushed out into tho streot and sent ,out an alarm of flro. A tall tenoment houso joined tho stables on tho west , side, and the inmates, awakened by the rat-- ' tling of the in the street, became panic-strick- en and rushed wildly into the streot, somo of.them in very scanty attire. ' They thought that it was the building which they lived In that was burning. Copt. Killila and n squad of men from tho West Forty-seven- th Streot Polico Station as. srared them that there was no danger, got them to return to their A strong wind was blowing from the and this blow tho flames away from tho tenenit t, which was All that saved it from 'taking fire, too. Meantime H. 0. Vooth, a saloon-keep- on Eighth avenue, and Georgo Mitchell, floor-- j walker in Theiss's Fourteenth street con-- cert saloon, had entered tho building I with throe- or four other men, and be- - tho arrival of the firemen had out thirty - eight horses whoso wero on tho second floor. Mr. and Mitchell and tho firemen when arrived mado hcrolo efforts to save tho ''animals in tho cellars, whoso ..shrieks of agony woro pitiful to hear. Nothing could bo done for them, however, as tho firo had spread so rapidly 'that it was impossible for any ono to go into the basement. ' Throe fire calls woro sent out in quiok sue- - cession, as it was fearod that tho .wind might carry tho flames across a , vacant lot and set fire to a row Vpf valuable private houses. When all the I firemen got to work it did not take long to I extinguish tho flames, and at 4 a. m. nothing I 'but a mass of smouldering ruins occupied their attention. , (.The building, whioh is owned by (Brewster & Company, carriage manu- - i tXacturors, was damajrod to tho ox- - , tent of $1,000. Itiley estimates his I loss at $10,000, whioh is partly ooverodlby in- - surance. lie owned six of tho houses that were binned. The others wero owned by private individuals. An unfortunato instance was that of Charles Bcholer, a Bivth avonno butcher, who had three horses, valued at $2,000 burned up, and ho did not have them insured. While the fire raged he stood on tho streot watching it and crying. A doctor named Oostey was said to havo lost a brougham valnod at $1,200, but this could not be verifiod. Tho total loss is estimated as $25,000 The cause of tho firo is not known, but it is sup- posed to have started by spontaneous com- bustion amidst a quantity of straw and refuse which littered tho floor between tho stalls in tho basement. In tho upper loft tho firo played terrible havoc, a narrow oblong well, running tho length of tho elevator, carrying tlio flames clean to tho roof. On this loft aro stored somo forty carriages, wagons and sleighs, besides tons and tons of, baled hay, all of which were ruined if not entirely dostroyod. finch was tho conflagration that when the flames died out it was impossible to dis- tinguish from tho moss of embers more than a dozen of the two score of vehicles, ana all morning the loft was thronged by anx- ious owners seeking some traco of n carriage or businoss wagon. On the first floor waB nlso stored somo fifty harnesses, all of which Vere damaged. Among the heaviost losers aro Miss A. Brooks, of B58 Fifth avonue, who lost a Vic- toria carriage, a brougham and a sot of harness, all valued at $2,100, which are partly insured. Mrs. John J. Grano, of 85 West Forty-sevent- h street, lost a set of carriage harness and robes, valued at $2,000, with no insurance. Her horse was badly singed, but suffered no serious injury. Dr. B. B. Columbia, of 811 West Forty-eight- h street, lost a brougham and phaeton valued at $1,600. Torranco Lomond, 617 Eighth avenue, lost two wagons valued at $100, on whioh thcro was no insurance Charles Patton, of Forty-eight- h street and Ninth avenue, lost two horses; Brooks Dur-yc- a, of Central Market, lost onot James Dunn, of West Forty-sevent- h street, lost two and a Mr. Shroder, of Sixth avenue, lost three. Who the other losers aro it was difll. cult to tell this morning.

Personally, bo is ono of the most oourteous and entertaining men it is possible to meet, and ho carries this charm of manner with him to tho platform. Mr. Chamberlain is a Birmingham man, and per- haps that is why ho is sometimes called pro- vincial. Tho Birmingham peoplo look upon him as a god, and his speechos at the Tow n Hall havo drawn larger crow ds than any other speaker lias boon known to attract thoro. Mr. Chamberlain is abovo tho middle hoight, has iron-gra- y hair and clearly cut features. Ho wears glasses as a rule. Ho said at Queenstown that no amount of hostile criticism would affect him in the per- formance of his duties hero. Ho is tolerably accustomed to hostile criticism anyway. Ho is very confident that his mission Will be successful, and has declared that no one was more desirous of maintaining good relations between England and America than ho. Ho believes that neither Americans nor Cana- dians can doubt his earnest wish to settlo tho fisheries question on terms fair and honora-bl- o to both countries. He will go to Washington and subsequently to Canada. Ho does not intend returning to England as soon as his work is finished, but will remain for some tiino in America to study the country.

IWaiMnften Ltttr to JtitXmond fYm.t, Speaking of money making, Ben Butler makes probably as much as any other ptfbllo man who has left politics for tho law. He nates $100,000 a year, It Is said, and makes It easily. Ills property hero In Washington has Increased In value bo that t was appraised tho other day at tW7,ooo, or t,ooo moro than tho amount at which ho offered to sell It to the Government two years ago. He probably put It low then on account of being very hard up as the result of his Presidential campaign. Duller Is a cry liberal man In politics, and he has spent several fortunes In keeping himself bifore tho people. His Gubernatorial campaigns cost him floo.ooo apiece, at least oucofhls closest friends estimates them at this, and ho mortgaged the property which ho offered to sell the Gomnment for $0,000 In order to get the ready money to carry on the last Presidential campaign. BUM Butler doca not worship money, and ho doea a great deal of work for nothing. I know of a number of poor women whom ho has helped by trying their cases for nothing. Uutlcr haa tho most deceiving form of any man In public life. He weighs about two hundred and fifty pounds, and has a look of grandmotherly ease about him. You would not Judgo that he over hurried, or that ho cared to do anything but sit In a big arm-cha- ir ami read, chat or laugh. Still ho Is ono of tho hardest marking lawyers In the United States, and ho onto said that he would rather try cases of assault and bat- tery at f 10 a suit than remain Idle. He Is a man of broad culture and Is a great roadcr. He under- stands how to economize his time, and makes his stenographer and private secretary do a great part of bis work, He believes In the use of modern In- tellectual machinery, and he haa hia letters filed carefully away, with the answers which he has made to them Jotted down In shorthand upon their hacks. If any question arises he unilerstanda what correspondence he has maao on the tust This fact will make his papers very In the future, as he haa a very wldo acquaint- ance wltn public men and as his correspondence Is largely made up of the unwritten history of pol- itics. He deala In sly moves, and his memoirs, If they are published, will probably keep many ot the statesmen of to-d- writing letters of explana- tion. I saw Duller In the Supremo Court room the other day. What a Jolly, generous, motherly old soul he Is. His face growB rosier as ho prows older, and as he laughs whllo engaging In conversa- tion, as he frequently does, bis \great fat belly shakca like a bowl of jelly.\ He does a great deal ot business at Washington, and he has been so long In publto llfo that he knows every one. He makes more newspaper material than any other man In the United btstes. and it ono could have an Index to tho newspapers which havo been published In this country during the lost .twenty-liv- e years there would be more references opposite Bauer's name than that of any other man. Gen. Koger A. Pryor sat beside Butler In the Su- preme Court on the day referred to above. Butler Is not handsome, and Pryor Is uglier than Butler. He Is as thin as Butler Is fat, and big face la as stern as Butler's Is Jolly. Butler's complexion la fair. Fryor's Is dark; his thick mane of hair, which curls as It falls upon bis coat-coll- Is as blaok as a raven's wing, and It shlnea like oiled ebony. Butler seldom looks sober, and never ap- - Sears very fierce. Pryor could scare the davll into he chose to do so, and he has a habit of cor- rugating bis chin and forehead like a rlnc-lln- wash-boar- d when ho Is In meditation, and his eyes more from ono aide of their lids to tho other, in \a legal frenzy rolling. \ Pryor Is over six feet high. Ho is as straight as a string, and la full of nervous activity. He talks well, makoa an excellent speech ill deep chest tones, and he Is considered one of tho best lawyers In the country. He Is a man with a history, and he first tnrncd op In national politics as President Pierce's Special Commissioner to Greece In 1865. He (Uibblod In tho law shortly after he graduated from college ten years before this, dropped it and turned his attention to editorial work. ,Ile edited a political Journal after he came back from Greece known aB the South, and then did work on the Washington States. Ho was In Congress before the war, was a member of the Confederate Con- gress and a brlgadler-genejr- In the Confederate army. After the war was over bo went to Tennes- see, and from thence drifted to New Tort. It was In 'i ennesseo, I think, that a friend met him while ho was In a fit of the blues and told him he ought to go to New York City and practise law. Trior replied that he did not know much about law, but his friend said that that made no difference in tho New York practice, and ad lscd him to go anybow. He took the adi Ice, went to Lie metropolis, and for several yeara had a rather Sard time of It. One day a man came Into his onlce and naked for Gen. Pryor. Pryor was startled, and he was mora sur- prised when the man continued : \I wish. Gen. Pryor, to retain you In a law- suit which will come up In the Supremo Court to- morrow. \ He then explained his case and asked Pryor what his fee would be. Pryor did not know what to say. lie thought bo ought to have a hundred dollars, but he feared the man might think It too much and he might loso tho case. While he stroked his long cbtn In deep meditation tho man said: \ I will give you what I agreed to pay my other counsel It that will satisfy you. I urn to pay you soo down and $500when the case Is tried.'' Ucn. Pryor replied that he thought that would be sufficient, and be acted as though he had been ac- customed to receiving I l.ooo fees every day for years back. Ho tried tho case and trlod It well. Ho throw his wholo soul Into hU speech, electrified the Court and won. He attracted attention by his effort, and since then ho haa had all tho business that he could do. He will not make a fortune out ot tho Anarchist cases, but ho has added to his reputation. Diet the Wroujj Man. From (A CMcaio IWlime.J I one day approached a dlgnlflod-ooklo- g man who was standing on tho platform at Itupld City, Dak. , waiting tor tho train, and whom I took to be a tenderfoot. After somo original and rather graceful remarks about the weather, I said: \ We've Just come In from a big bear hunt out In the Limestone ltange greatest luck in the world killed \ \I beg your pardon,\ he broke In, \but I fear you havo made a mistake I've Just come In from a six weeks 'hunt In the Limestone ltange myself. Besides, I own a ranch out hero about fifteen miles, and I have made It a point to bunt bears In the range every fall for the last eight years. \ \Oil I said, quietly, and then I walked arouud the depot, dropped on the platform, and went up to the hotel, where I cornered a man who I knew had Just come out from the Kast, and for the next half hour stained the soft, hazy horizon towards the Limestone, ltange a deep, rich red, and piled up the dead and mangled carcasses of great and ferocious bears tilt the victim turned away sick at heart, At the Pawnbroker's.

Fellows had been a valiant champion of Tweed, defending him in publlo speeches and vllllfylng all who criticised his dishonest career. There waa ample reason for Tweed to bo \gener- ous \ to CoL Fellows. Hebaddono him valuable service. In one of his numerous exnlaoatlona printed yesterday, Col. Fellows claims that this money waa a \loan \and waa repaid toTwcedL Mo re- ceipt or voucher ot any kind was taken to show It. Col. Fellows avers that a week or so after the above letters were written and Tweed handed over tho money ho met Dewey (Tweed's private secre- tary) In Delmonlco'a and handed him f&23 in bills. Dewey Is dead. riLLOWS A The Times to-d- says that OoL Fellows does not seem to know the statute law of the state in regard to the punishment of publlo officers who, after they go out of office, give aid and encouragement to the public enemies' or take fees and emoluments from them. The following will be almost as Interesting read- ing to him to-d- as the text of his old letters was yesterday: Sections 1 and SM of chapter 11, title 2, of the Revised statutes, whioh are Identical with section 1 of chapter so ot the laws of ISM sayt ' ' Ho attorney, solicitor, or counsellor who shall have brought, carried on, aided, advocated or prosecuted, or ahall have been In anywise connected with any cause, matter, salt, or pro- ceeding In any court as District-Attorne- y or other publlo prosecutor, shall at any tune thereafter, directly or Indirectly, advise In rela- tion to, or aid or take any part whatever In the .defense thereof, or take or receive, either directly or Indirectly, of or from any defendant therein or other person any fee, gratuity, or reward, for or upon any cause, consideration, pre- tense, understanding or agreement whatever, either express or Implied, having relation thereto or to the prosecution or defense thereof.

Fellows Wants to Shift tho Load on '.Derrej, and Dswey Is Dead. Here are a few of Col. Fellows's explanations about the 1528 he got from Boas Tweed the day after Tweed's Jury disagreed. They make Interest- ing reading. FBIXOWS'S FIRST BXrLANATIOK. \ It Is true that I wrote the letters, but the de- ductions drawn therefrom by the Times aro en- tirely false. I waa hard up for $soo on Feb, t, 18T8. I applied for tho money to Mr. Tweed, who waa an old friend of mine and helped me out be- fore.\ HIS EXPLANATION AJTZR MORI CONSIUBBATIOK. \You may aay that tho whole matter Is very simple and explainable. Referring to the charges that I borrowed $s from William M. Tweed, I have Utls toaayi 1 did borrow that amount from tbt late a Foster Dewey, Mr. Tweed's private sec- retary, who was my persoual friend. He got It from Mr. Tweed. It was Immaterial to me from whom be got It.\ Oil UXCOLLBOTION LATBB. \With reference to the money whioh, It Is said, I borrowed from Tweed, I may say that I never borrowed the sam of lata or any other sum from Mr. Tweed. Mr, B. Foster Dewoy, who happeiMd I to be Mr. Tweed's secretary, was my friend. I had known him for some years. What money I received I got from Mr. Dewey. That Is my recol- lection of the matter at this time. HIS AUTHORIZED JtXTLANTION STILL LATER. Col. Fellows met Mr. Dewey and Informed him that be bad obligations amounting to $923 to meet on the following day, a part of which waa In the bank, and that he bad but two with which to meet it. Col. Fellows asked Mr. Dewey whether. If he failed to get the money the next day trom parties to whom he had applied for It, he could assist blm temporarily, ne aald ho thought ho could. In the conrso of two or three hours Mr. Dewey sent word to Col. Fellows that he would let him have the money the next day If It waa necessary, and that If he wanted It he must send to Mr. Tweed for It. On the fol- lowing day, not receiving the money trom the quarters whero he had applied, hewroto a note the first note which was published this morning to Mr. Tweed. Waiting until nearly t o'clock and fearing that his obligation In the bank would go to protest, ho sent the second note, and 'n return re- ceived the check for $3t3. OoL Fellows did not see Mr. Tweed; be never bad one word ot conver- sation with him In regard to the matter, and within one week from that time, as he hail promised In his first note, he repaid the money. That is all thero Is to this last campaign slander. - JOHN JR. FELLOWS'S LETTERS TO TWEED. TjKTTEU NO. 1. 7) ? 2J0&ZZZ8r & 'j?r&t& XETTEU MO. 2.

Some of the pebple do not believe In gambling, but there are many.otbers who see nothing wrong In It. I waslyou&gtr and more foolish then than I am now.\ ?WffatfR0re0aimMWt T&WtW, adds naively: \ I may, perhaps, still play a lit- - In 187a, when he was \younger and more foo- lish,\ Col. Fellows had reached the giddy and youthful age of forty-si- x years. He had had no experience except the meagro bit which a youth of his ago might ordinarily gather as a lawyer practising at the Arkansas bar, aa a colonel In the Con- federate army and aa a practising lawyer and campaign orators In this city from lwis to lifts. This laat period Is a little matter'bf sight ears, during which, In his youthful experience, J e had fallen Into the hands of the FuUlstlnea of the law to the extent of something over ts.ooo, obtained In Judgments against him by various dealers of this city for bills which he had tailed to honor when due. He bad been Aailatant District-Attorn- for some years, and bad assumed to assist in the direction of politics in thU city. He was. Indeed, a precocious youth for ono so young and foolish. liuthla baby act defense of his baby act plea In the suit for the debt of honor which he had Incurred to Aasemblyman Stauff seems not to go down with the people, and tho exposure ot this youthful performance of Boss rower's candidate fell like a pall on the spirits of the rtngsters who hare forced this un- savory bit of crow down the throats of the Tam- many Hall men and upon the people of this city. The World left no place for doubt In the matter. It printed fao similes of the note given by Col. Fellows to Mr. Btauff for KV); and reprinted the complaint In Mr. Stauffs salt In the Supreme Court and the answer of Cob Fel- lows, In wlitoh he pleads that ttie note was given for a debt Incurred at gambling at poxer, and was therefore wlthont legal consideration. Of course Col. Fellows did not have a Judgment filed agalnki blm for this debt of honor. He got out by acting the part of a welcher. A welcher la a man of no honor, according to the gambler's lexicon. Then Tni World printed a fao slmllo of a check given by Fellows to Staun for ll&o.to get him to be quiet about the whole matter. But Mr. staurf found that the check was valueless, for CoL Fel- lows had no funds in the bank on which It was drawn. The exposure knocked the rotten bottom out of the alleged boom for the welcher, and bet- ting men are running up and down la vain end Ivors to hedge auch beta aa they had mado on the success of his candidacy. But it is hard lo utrt men foolish and youthful enough to take the odds offered by them on Do LuuceT NIoolL In short, since the exposure by Tub Wobld everybody wants to bet on NicolL J31U Xyt at a Candidate Gee tht Sunday, TVo), 2 O'CLOCK EDITION. 1 'SBH NOT THE MAtf FOR THE PUCE, M ruBiio oriinos beitino bimwix '!
