Tlie Blaze Started in tlie Basement and Quietly Cnt off AH Escape—The Vic tims Rash to tlie 'Windows But Are Driven Rack \by the Elames — A Blind Woman and an Infant Among the Read. C leveland, March. 24.—A fire horror unprecedented in the history of Cleveland, occurred shortly after noon yesterday When five women and one child were burned to death in an apartment house on. one of the leading residence streets. The fire occurred at the Morgan, a fash ionable boarding place, at 508 Prospect street. The building was a 3-story and basement brick structure containing 45 rooms and it had nearly 40 inmates. Just at the hour for luncheon, Mrs, J. H. Mil ler, one of the boarders, discovered flames in the hall on the second floor. Escape hy the stairway was cut oil so Mrs. Miller jumped from a 2 story window to the ground and gave tho alarm. The fire spread rapidly through the halls, and hundreds of people who con gregated on the scene at once attempted to rescue those who were in the buildings. Nobody thought, however, to turn in a fire alarm, and at least half an hour elapsed before a steamer arrived or a po liceman had been sent to tlie place. The utmost excitement prevailed and it was not until the flames had been sub dued that the extent of the catastrophe was learned. •j.ne lire siaueu iu mo uasemcui, j'w” how is not known, and it swept up through the halls, cutting off all means of escape. The women who perished ran to the windows, but before anything could be done to assist theln they were driven back by the smoke aud liames. Those on the lower floors rushed to the street and one woman, besides Mrs. Mil ler, jumped from a second story window. She was*Mrs. E. T. Giffprd and was caught in a rubber coat held by two spectators escaping without, injury. The dead bodies were found on the third floor. The corpses were burned to a crisp. The upper two floors of the build ing are gutted and the contents of the house are ruined. The Morgan is owoed by W. J. Morgan, the lithographer. It cost §30,0110 and was insured. The contents are owned by Mrs. H. M. Hanna and leased to the Misses McEadden, who kept the place. Mrs. Hanna estimates her loss at §12,000 with no insurance. END 0E A BUSY LIFE. ELIOT F. SHEPARD EXPIRES AT NEW YORK. Ho TVas Proprietor of the New York Mail and Express — About to Undergo an Operation When Death Intervened. The End Came Peacefully — Sketch of the Read Man’s Career — Euneral Not Yet Arranged. N ew Y ork , March 25.—Colonel Eliot Eiteh Shepard, editor of The Mail and Ex press, died suddenly yesterday afternoon at his home, 3 West Fifty-second street. His death followed the administration of ether by Dr. Charles McBurney and the family physician, Dr. J. W. McLane, who were about to make an examina tion to ascertain whether the col onel’s suspicion that he suffered from stone in the bladder was cor rect. He had in haled the drug but two or three times ELIOT F. SHEPAED. when the physi cians detected dangerous symptoms and stopped the inhalation. Colonel Shepard sank rapidly, and for a time it was feared that he could not he rallied. Powerful restoratives were administered. At the end of an hour’s work with oxygen he was restored to partial consciousness, and he continued apparently to rally until about 4 o’clock. Then without warning and for no apparent reason he began rapidly to sink. HIS DEATH WAS PEACEFUL. The oxygen treatment was resumed but it was of no avail and at 4:20 o’clock he died. He was unconscious and his death was peaceful. The cause of death given by the physicians was oedemn of the lungs. Immediately before Colonel Shepard’s death messages were sent to Mrs. Shepard announcing that he was very low and that he might not live. She reached the house about 5 o’clock. Immediate friends of the family began arriving at about 6:30 o’clock. Cornelius Vanderbilt was one of the first. Dr. John Hall Came soon afterward. Colonel Shep ard was a member of Dr. Hall’s church and was an officer there. Chauncey M. Depew was the next visiter. A string of carriages was continually at the Fifth avenue side of the house all evening. At a late hour no arrangements had been made for the funeral. Elliot Fitch [Shepard was born in Jamestown, Chautauqua county, N. Y., July 25, 1833. He was educated at the university of the city of New York, ad mitted to the bar in 1H58, and fey? many years practiced in New York city. In 1861 and 1863 he was aide-de-camp on the staff of Governor Edwin D. Morgan, was in command of the depot of volunteers at Elmira, N. Yk, and aided in the organiz ing, equipping and sending forward to the field nearly 50,000 troops. He was instru mental in raising the Fifty-first New York regiment, which was named for him, the Shepard rifles. He was the founder of the New York State Bar association in 18T6, which has formed the model for the organization of similar associations in other states. In March, 1888, lie purchased the New York Mail aud Express. Striking Ship Painters Win.

I ndianapolis , March 25. — Additional particulars from Alexandria, Ind., say a tornado struck that city, damaging resi dences, business houses and destroying the Lippincott glass factory. The wind struck at the south end, crushing it down upon the machinery and employes. The dam age will reach §5,000 to the factory alone. John Andie, Jr., was instantly killed. Frank McShafery, Peter Hanlan, Ernest Frey, James Branham and some others whose names have not yet been learned were very seriously injured. Three hundred and fifty men are thrown out of employment Until t!^e factory can be rebuilt. Some of the injured men re mained in the debris from the time of the storm till 8 o’clock in the morning. SHEPARD’S DEATH. STATEMENT ISSUED BY DRQ. M’LANE AND M’BURNEY. Refailed Account of the Administration of Ether and Its Effect on tlio De ceased — The Contemplated Operation Was to Make an Examination of the Bladder—The Statement Requested hy Chauncey Depew and the Family. N ew Y ork , March 27.—At the special request of Dr. Chauncey Nj. Depcw and the members of the family of the late El liot F. Shepard, Drs. McBurney and Mc Lane last night gave out the following statement for publication: “In consequence of the many misstate ments that have been made in the public press in regard to the case of the late Eliot F. Shepard, the undersigned, at the request of his fami'y and many friends, have consented to make the following statement: “On Friday afternoon, March 24, we mot at Colonel Shepard’s liou.se for the pur pose of making a thorough exploration under ether of his bladder, and we pro posed if practicable to remove the stone which it contained. The presence of the stone had been determined at two careful examinations made on Feb. 24 and March 9. These were conducted without an an- oesthetic and gave the patient some pain. “Between Feb. 24 and March 24 several examination - of the urine were made, but no evidence of any organic disease of the kidney was found. His heart ancl lungs proved to be healthy and after careful ex amination the existence of any disease was excluded, such as might interfere with tbe proper performance of the pro posed iteration, which was postponed at Colont$ id- epard’sown request until March 24. Y vC-L cially instructed him to eat very . fllT.-i at an early hour on the day the t, operation and td take no food ai. i ward. “At 12:30 o’clock when we found him in his study he was apparently in good spirits, but remarked that he felt a little nervous about the operation. He went up at once to his bedroom, removed his clothes, wrapped himself in his dressing gown, looked about the room at the seem ingly elaborate preparations which had been made for the operation and expressed surprise at their detail. He was told that they related chiefly to surgical cleanliness and were no greater than he would find in a good hospital, and that we thought he deserved at least as careful treatment as a hospital p a tien t, fie preferred to take the ether on the operating table rather than on the bed. ADMINISTRATION OF ETHER. “At about 12:45 tbe administration, of ether was commenced. It was explained to him that by taking full respirations and not offering any resistance he would come more rapidly under the influence of the anesthetic, and for a few minutes he inhaled the ether uncommonly well, his breathing being full and freo. “His color now changed somewhat, and it was apparent that he was nauseated. In another moment he vomited. After this his color was better, but as his res pirations were not satisfactory nor his pulse the further administration of the anesthetic was discontinued. As yet not enough ether had been given to admit of proceeding with the proposed operation. “All our efforts were now directed to securing proper respiratory action. As is usual in all cases where respiration is not perfectly satisfactory, the breathing con tinuing very labored, an examination was made of the larnyx to discover whether possibly some particle of food had lodged in it, but such proved not to be the case. “The patient’s condition was now so alarming as to call for extreme measures, and in the hope that the symptoms might he due to the presence in the windpipe of vomited material, accidentally' inhaled, the operation of trachaeotomy, or opening of the windpipe, was performed. We even passed a rubber tube down the wind pipe and inito the bronchial tube, making use of a powerful aspirating syringe with out discovering the presence of anything but bloody mucuos. “In the meantime several careful exami nations were made of the lungs and the sounds were heard such as indicate oede ma of the organs. Oxygen had been pre viously sent for and under its influence the patient slightly revived. Artificial respiration and. every other means, which might possibly give relief, was resorted to. From this time on his breathing became even more embarrassed, but still artificial respiration was continually kept up, al though his pulse became steadily more feeble. “He sank rapidly into unconsciousness, and in spite of all efforts died at 10 min utes past 4 o’clock. In our opinion Colo nel Shepard died of sudden oedema and congestion ol the lungs following the ad ministration of ether, but piimarily due to some cause unknown to us” James W. Mc?L.\ne, M. D., Charles McB ulixey , M. D Autopsy on Rizzie Wilson’s Body. N ew Y ork , March 27.— Au autopsy on the body of Lizzie Wilson, who was found dead Friday night at 314 East Thirteenth street-, was performed at the morgue by Coroner Messemer.

BLIZZARDS OF GREAT SEVERITY IN MANY SECTIONS. Two Villages Blown From tlio Face of the Earth—Great Ram age to Telegraph and Telephone Systems —* Milwaukee Cut Off from the Outside World. Farions Storms Reported Throughout Almost the Entire West. Memfi-IIS, March 24.—Scattering reports coming to Memphis from points in West Tennessee and Northern Mississippi indi cate that a terrific clyclone whirled up the Mississippi valley from the southwest yes terday, crushing and sweeping away everything in its mad path. Telegraph wires in every direction were twisted into tangles and communication with the stormawept localities was exceedinly diffi cult and unsatisfactory. Trains from the east reaching the city late in the after noon and evening brought reports of widespread destruction. Passengers on the Yazoo and Mississip pi Valley train told of the destruction of Tunica, Miss. The Birmingham train due in Memphis at 5:30 could not get to Mem phis until after 8 o’clock, men being com pelled to chop and remove trees from tbe track between here and Kelly, which is a station about 13 miles from Memphis. The swath of the storm as it crossed the Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham road seemed to embrace a territory be tween Ooupcrville and Olive Branch. Dozens of houses, huge trees and barns were razed to the ground by the violence of the storm. The damage at Tunica, Miss., was great. II' ’USES crushed l ik e eggshells . About 3:30 o’clock in the afternoon the sky iu the southwest began to darken ink- ly aud a low wailing sound announced a storm. Within a few minutes the wind came along with terrible velocity and with a swish and whirl that portended danger. The first hard blow gave way to the cyclone and houses were crushed liki eggshells. The ruthless visitor lingered over the town scarcely two minutes and yet in that timo the greatest paid of the town was de- stroyed. The Knights of Pythias and Masonic hall is now a heap of timber. The roof of the courthouse was carried awry. When the storm subsided cries and screams of children were heard from the colored schoolhouse where 150 children had been gathered at their lessons. The building, a 3-story frame, had been blown doivn, and beneath the ruins was a mass of struggling children. Bo far as known none were killed, but there were many maimed and bruised, some with broken arms and some with fractured skulls. The full extent of the damage is not known, but the loss to property will go into the hundreds of thousands. Trainmen on the Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham road report that Kelly, Aliss., was wiped off the face of the earth, not a soul being left to tell the tale. BUILDINGS WRECKED DESTRUCTION WROUGHT ON EVERY HAND AT NASHVILLE. Xlic Most Terrific Stox-ra. in the History of the City—Buildings Blown Down and Houses Unroofed—Several Persons Killed and Many Badly Injured—De tails of the Tornado at Alexandria, Ind. N a sh v ille, Tenn., March 25.—One of the most terrific wmd and rainstorms in the histoiy of Nashville swept, over the city Thursday night between 7 and 10 o’clock, uprooting trees and telephone poles in various parts of the city. The greatest force of the storm was felt in the northern part of the city, where several houses were unroofed. One owned by J. J. Rucker and occupied by W . F. Brad ford was completely rased to the ground. Bradford was taken from his home in a badly bruised condition. He was not fatally hurt. McNeil Drumright, aged 13, who boarded with Bradford, was taken from the debris in a mangled condition and can live only a few hours. Eugene Drumright, aged 18, a brother to McNeil, was horribly mangled and was dead when found. fears that others PERISHED. It is feared that other people were in jured or killed in the building. Tlie en tire debris, however, will have to be re in q wed before anything definite can be learned. Everything in the building was ruined. About 300 feet distant from the scene the roof of th e grocery store of Munn & Slighenthaler was blown off and their stock of goods totally destroyed. The greenhouses of M. Tritsehler were also totally destroyed. The roof of the residence of W. J. TVood, ex-third vice president of the Louisville and Nashville road, on Nortlf Spruce street, was blown away and the contents of the house ruined. In all 15 houses have been badly damaged afid destroyed and the loss will foot up in the thousands. OAKHILL COLLIERY EXPLOSION. Two Men Killed aiul Four Seriously, if Not Fatally, Injured. P o t t s v illf, Pa., March 25.—Two men were killed and four badly', if not fatally, injured by an explosion of gas at Oakhill colliery near Minersville yesterday. When the men went to work they received their orders from the tire boss, who informed them the mine was clear of gas. The men went to work in different parts of the mine aud within half an hour after the whistle blew a terrific explosion oc curred which was felt in every part of the mine, and even on the surface a severe shock was felt. Down below, rock coal aud timbers were hurled in all directions. The explo sion occurred iu the east gangway on the lower drift. A miner entered an old breast, when his lamp ignited a body of gas wlfieh had ac cumulated there unknown to the boxes. The names of th e killed and injured as far as known are: William Purcell, killed outright; John Morgan, badly burned and bruised, not expected to recover; William James, arms and legs broken, injured in ternally, will die; David Davis, Jr., prob ably fatally- injured. Two more bodies were brought to the surface, one dead aud the other horribly mutilated, but living, both unrecogniza ble.

MADE AMBASSADOR. Sir Julian Paimcefoto Itaiae<l to That Ilimk by tlie Queen, WASHINGTON, March 27 -.—The State de partment has received official informa tion that Queen Victoria has raised the rank of Sir Julian Pauncefote, the representative in Washington,from that of envoy ex traordinary and minister plenipo tentiary, to that of ambassador and that his creden tials as such are on their wo y here. Under the provis ions of the dijilo ma-tic and consul ar appropriation bill of March 1 , 1S 9 3, President sir julian pauncefote .Cleveland is authorized to confer the same rank upon our representative in London. It says that “whenever he shall he ad vised that any foreign government is rep resented or about to be represented-by an ambassador, etc., it shall be in his discre tion to direct that the present representa tive of the United States to such govern ment shall bear the same title.” Hitherto no ambassador has been ac credited to the United States because the United States did not confer that title upon any of its ministers abroad and reci procity is always observed in diplomatic representation. Sir Julian Pauncefote will be the first minister to \Washington to hold the title of ambassador, but it is highly probable that France, Germany, Russia and Aus tria will be prompt to follow the example thus set by England and change the titles of their ministers to ambassadors, thus necessitating, in international courtesy, a corresponding change on our part. I1R0KE THE EEG0ED. PRELIMINARY TRIAL OF TH E CRUISER. NEW YORK. She Proves H erself dm Fastest Armored Vessel In tho World—Captain R. W. Sargent In Command — Her Official Trial to Come Off Inside of Three Weeks—Naval Experts Deeply Inter ested III the Trial, Philadelphia, March 27.— With the proud distinction of having broken the record of all preliminary trials and the satisfaction of being the fastest armored vessel in the world, the cruiser New Y'ork returned to Cramp’s shipyard yesterday morning. From the hour she steamed down the Delaware last Tuesday until her arrival yesterday, naval experts have awaited with deep interest the result of the great warship’s initial performance. The New York anchored at nightfall about seven miles to the northward of the breakwater. Wedne.-.day was cold and damp with a fresh breeze from the northeast. The New York lay quietly at anchor in the enrly morning aud the prospect of a run outside looked discouraging. At 8 THE NEW YORK, o’clock it brightened up a bit and the cruiser got underway for the purpose of correcting her compasses and adjusting the compensating magnets. This accom plished the vessel returned to her anchor age to wait for good weather to begin her trial. By Saturday morning the wind had heaved to the westward and the weather was clear. Fires were lighted at daylight and before 0 o’clock the New York was under way running for the Five Fathom bank lightship. The race was to be be tween this and the Northeast end light ship, a distance of 9.88 nautical miles, the depth of water being 12 fathoms. Five Bathom bank lightship to North east end lightship course, north by east, distance 9.S8 nautical miles. Start, 8:24:15; finish, 8:53:53; difference, 29m 38s; speed, 20.03 nautical miles per hour. Second trial—Northeast end lightship to Five Fathom bank lightship, course, south by west; distance, 9.88 nautical miles; start, 9:13:07; finish, 9:43:58; differ ence, 29m.ru. 51sec.; speed, 19.87 nautical miles; average for the two trials, 19.95 miles. In the afternoon the cruiser was headed to the eastward in search of deeper water. In a run of four consecutive hours she maintained a speed of 20.38 knots per hour, reaching as high as 20.57 as the water deepened. With these satisfactory results the New York anchored for the night and steamed up to the shipyard yesterday morning. She will be ready for her official trial within three weeks. Captain Bedford W. Sargent was in command of the New York during her trial, assisted by Captain George L. Chambers, an old Delaware river pilot, who has steered all of the Cramp’s new sliipg. There were 340 peo ple on board. Mr. Edwin Cramp, the su perintending engineer of the company, was practically in charge of the trial. He was ably assisted by Air. Lewis Nixon, the naval architect of the firm, and chief en gineer John Patterson, James Younger and L. Johnson. Secretary Carlisle aud the Tariff. W ashington , March 24.—Secretary Car lisle, it is stated on g&od authority, in tends to give much of his time this sum-’ mer to the consideration of the tariff with a view to so thoroughly familiarizing himself with the subject as to indicate in a general way the outlines for the forma tion of a tariff bill by the next Democratic house. He in no sense intends to prepare a bill in detail to be submitted to the ways and means committee of the next house, hut rather to be in a position to give them all the assistance and information they may need in the preparation of a tariff bill that will carry out in its word and in ten t the spirit of the tariff plank in the Democratic platform. Funeral of M. Alcxejefil Moscow, March 27.—M. Alexejeff, the murdered mayor of this city, was buried yesterday at the Novshassky monastery in the suburbs. The funeral was conducted with great pomp. The Grand Duke Ser gius, all the provincial officials, the city authorities and the foreign consuls were present. Although the burial place is four miles from the city hall au immense crowd followed the body to the grave. l NO TARIFF! A L L T A A L E N O F F , ALSO ----- im > < w IW*!
