"Eighty acres of the most valuable prop
erty in the busy manufacturing town of
Lynn, Mass., were swept clean by fire yes
terday afternoon. Bight thousand employes
of shoe manufactories are thrown out of
wort. One hundred and sixty-four families
are homeless and penniless. The fire was
about the largest Massachusetts has suffered
during this century. Nothing could check
the flames until they reached the water's
edge. The loss is variously estimated, a
conservative figure being 56,000,000.
SPECIAL TXLSGBAK TO THE DISPATCH.
Lyjut, Mass., November 2G Six million
dollars' worth of shoes and lumber went up
in smoke this afternoon from the business
district of the biggest shoe town in the
world, throwing out of work 8,000 opera
tives, and rendering 1G4 families homeless.
To-night 80 acres that were crowded with
buildings 12 hours ago are a mass of flaming
ruins. The scene of ruin and desolation is
Some idea of the devastation can be
rained from this brief statement of the
re oi me names; -so ouuawgs were
completely wiped ont of existence, and
there were others more or less damaged.
Among the burned buildings were 42 brick
structures, 112 business houses built of
wood, and 112 dwelling houses. One church,
the Eastern Bailroad station, four banks
and four newspaper offices were among the
public concerns burned out.
Impossible to Fight the Flames.
The fire spread with such frightful
rapidity that the fire department was help
less, and the flames leaped from street to
street with little opposition in the shape of
water. The heat was so intense that the
men could not approach near enough to use
their streams to advantage, and although
assistance was sent from Boston, Salem,
Maiden, Marblehcad, Saugus, Everett and
other places, the fire worked Its way to the
water front before it was subdued.
The great bulk of the buildings were of
word, and in these the flames held high
carnival. But even the brick blocks offered
very little resistance. They, too, were
' swept away like so much chaff in the whirl-
wind of fire. After it had gone beyond the
control of the department a panic seemed to
seize upon the firemen and citizens. The
-'streets were filled with people shouting
madly in their excitement.
A Banning Race for Life.
Operatives poked their heads out of the
windows to see what caused the disturbance
and saw a wall of fire coming down the
street It was in many instances a race for
life. The men poured out of the buildings
ina human stream, leaving everything .be
hind, and they were none too soon, lor in a
twinkling great buildings were enwrapped
in flames and dissolved.
It was a terrible sight, even for the exper
ienced eyes of firemen. The railroad track
was jumped by the flames with ridiculous
ease,isnd the same mad rush was continued.
Thetwo military companies were called out
to clear the streets, and when this labor had
been accomplished, more could' be accom
plished. Early in the afternoon the outside
assistance began to arrive, but even then
there was a total of only 15 engines, and the
re was jumping in all directions, uncheck
ed by the streams thrown upon it
., , The Boston Chief Takes Command.
-'It'tseemed a shame to see fine blocks
.burned'wlren they could have been saved by
a single stream, but the stream was not
forthcoming, and the fire reigned supreme.
Chief Engineer Moody became prostrated
during the height of the conflagration, and
Chief "Webber, of Boston, took command,
.He massed the engines on Newhall street,
and stayed the progress of the fire toward
what remained of the business district that
alone saved Lynn from utter annihilation.
The fire was first seen in the rear of the
handsome brick block and mammoth fac
tory of A. A &3F. C Mower, on Almont
sstreetyin the most thickly settled portion of
r the4business district The wind was blow-
' 5ing smartly, but there seemed no danger of
a serious fire. The scene had changed,
though, by the time the firemen had arrived.
The flames had spread with marvelous
speed through every floor of the big factory.
.NThe operatives bad just left the building
wr ineir noon rest, so trier were in no
danger. Otherwise there most have been a
frightful loss ot life.
Frantic FroHc of tho Flumes.
The serious character of the blaze was seen
by the chief, and extra apparatus was sum
moned, but the fire was off for its frolio
before they could get to work. The shoe
shops had been built with a view of econo
mising every inch of room. They were
crowded together so closely that the fire
couldn't help spreading. It needed but
to leap out from the window of one factory
and land on the window sill of the
adjoining building, and it did not require a
very long leap, either. The result was that
in an incredibly short time a great column
of flame was ascending from a pile of wooden
structures, blown hither and thither by a
gale that whirled it in the faces of the fire
men to drive them back, and then whisked
great sheets of it across the street to other
The scene, in 15 minutes after the first
stroke of the alarm had son tided, exceeded
anything ever before witnessed in Lynn.
Central square and all its contiguous thor
oughfares were filled with flying wagons
and vans, arid hurrying people bearing
books, drygoods, shoes and valuables of
every description to friendly shelter.
A Chance of Base JfecessUated.
But as soon as they had been dumped in
one place of seeming safety, the rapid spread
of the fire necessitated another change of
base. Many were not so fortunate as to be on
hand when the second attack was made, and
their goods went up with the buildings.
There are rumors to the effect that some
lives were lost in this attempt to save prop
erty, but that cannot be verified to-night
Mr. Mower, in whose building the fire start
ed, was nearly overcome by the flames when
he ran back to close the safe door, and one
of his employes was caught in an upper
story, but was rescued by the firemen. When
the walls of Mower's big. six-story brick
building on Almont street fell there were
several firemen beneath, and it is reported
that one was crushed to death. The rest of
the building followed the rear walls, so it
will not be possible to ascertain the truth of
the rumor until the missing man is inquired
for. The Central National Bank was in this

The next building was the large frame
factory of Bennett & Barnard, manufac
turers of the finest shoes in New England,
and employing 150 hands. This building
was a five-story building, practically, and
about 200 feet long, extending back to
Almont street The great structure yielded
like pasteboard to the march of the flames,
and with its $100,000 worth of fine shoes in
all stages of manufacture, was entirely
Next to this were the buildings of the
Keene estate, ot Massachusetts, of cheap
frame structures, some three or four stories
high, extending from Almont to Union and
Willow streets. There was about half an
acre of these wooden rookeries, and they
-were gobbled up like so much chaff.
The destruction of these blocks brought
the fire up to the fine brick block known as
the Stevens building, and B. W. Currier's
new $75,000 six-story block, just finished, at
the corner of Almont and Union streets.

was only a momentary check. In a few
minutes the bricks fell into the street, and
the fire spread onward. (
The heat was terrific. The firemen tried
toapproach behind shutters, but the shut

forced to retreat The cinders and big fire

a hurricane, and the flames' were carried

After the business houses had been eate"n
up the fire let itself loose among the dwell

these were cheap structures,occupied mainly
by poorer families. They burned like tin

tSFXCUT. TXXXOBAX to thi dispatch.!
Ltsn, Mass., November 26. It is im
possible to-night to give individual losses.
There were three big brick blocks, all of
which were five or six stories high, which
were wholly destroyed. Mower's block, B.
E. Spinney's block, Stevens' block, Cur
rier's block, the Lynn Institution, for Sav
ing, John Balbey block, Hortland block,
Jones, Cook & Co.'s, E. H, Ashford's,
Amos F. Breed &Co.'s, D. C. & O. Buf
fum's, S. N. Breed's, F. E. Abbott's and
B. K. &A. H. Jones, shoe manufacturers.
These buildings cost anywhere from 550,000
to 575,000 each.
The losses are about half covered by in
surance, and as the policies are widely dis
tributed, the manufacturers think they will
be able to recover the insurance money. A
conservative estimate on the value of the
buildings dtstroyed, made by one of the
assessors, is $1,528,320. The assessors and
manufacturers say that the stock and ma
chinery that went up in smoke was valued
at lully $3,500,000.
Suflcrlne of the Poor People.
The factories were running on full time,
and there was a big stock on band waiting
for the opening of the spring trade. Every
thing was lost. The poor people will suffer
greatly unless some assistance comes
from outside. The city began im
mediately to prepare temporary houses
for those who had no lnendly shelter
to go to, and the houses were quickly filled.
Is will be a matter of great expense to feed
these people until things are straightened
out, and in addition will be the suffering of
the 8,000 employes who will have nothing to
do for several weeks. A meeting of the
city government was held to-night, and com
mittees were appointed to carry on the work.
In proportion to its area and population,
the city of Lynn suffered a larger loss by
fire than any other city in Massachusetts
during the present century. It began like
the great fire in Boston in November, 1872,
in buildings that apparently could be
easily reached, but as the flames spread they
became so intense that for several hours
human skill to stay them was of no avail.
A Most Terrible Spoctncle.
It was a terrible spectacle as the fire pro
gressed and destroyed building after build
ing in its path, and structures built with all
modern safeguards against fire could not
resist the tremendous volume of flame any
more than an ordinary wooden dwelling,
from which a thin line of smoke would be
visible at one moment and a minute later a
pile of ashes marked the spot where the
Anyone who watched the progress of the
great fire in Boston in 1872, could not fail
to notice in mauv respects a repetition of it
here to-day, as the water line formed one
limit and the massing of engines at another
point, after the conflagration had raged for
nearly six hours, marked a line where de
struction ended and valuable residences
which were endangered were saved. The
extent of territory of the burnt district of
Lynn is about the same as that of Boston in
1872, and the loss was relatively about the
The Host Pitiful Bight of All.
The principal difference in the two fires
was the burning of a large number of resi
dences in this city, the homes of the poor
and others more unfortunate in Lynn,
while in Boston the loss was almost entirely
confined to warehouses and other places of
It was a pitiful sight to witness the break
ing up of homes and the frantic efforts of
occupants to save household treasures and
other effects, most of which were doomed to
destruction, because, in many instances, it
was impossible to procure teams to remove

chusetts Bay, and southeast on Nahant Bay,
separated from the harbor by the peninsula
of Nahant, which juts out in a southerly
direction from the city at the junction of
the Eastern Bailroad, 'with its Sangus
branch, 10 miles northeast of Boston. Its
population in 1850 was 14,257; in 1860, 19,-
083; in 1870, 28,233 (of whom 4,935 were for
eigners); in 1880, 38,274. and at present
about 50,000. Its limits include a large
plain in the south and west, raised but a
few feet from the water level; a range of
hills in the rear; a number of ponds known
as the lakes of Lynn; beyond these,
and in the northeast, an elevated plain, the
most pleasant and healthy portion of the city.
There are a number of public squares, the
principal of which is the Common, in the south
ern part of the city; and, as a residence city, it
was, nntll yesterday, the most beautiful in all
New England, fairly swarming, as it did, with

of that place, after mourning her husband
as dead for two years, finds he is alive. Ho

Canandaioua, N. T., November 26.
Last Sunday Mrs. GeorgeBeddington, of
this, village, wore widow's weeds, but -to-day
she discards them, because ofthe joyful in
telligence that her husband, mourned two
years as dead, is alive and on his way from
a Western city, to greet her and his little
boy, oft whose existence he is yet unaware.
Three years ago young Eeddington,wJio was
not yet of age, secretly married a well-connected
and fascinating young girl, and im
mediately started for the West to seek his
fortune and estabjisb. a home for the wife
who remained with her family hey. In
company with two other young men he set
tled uDon some Government land near
Lakin, Kan., and prospered welt. He wrote
cheering letters home to bis wife and
mother, and the young couplo expected to
be reunited berore many months.
BEPOBTED DEATH AHD BUBIAL.
On November 27, 1887, about eightmonths
after bis departure, jxeaaineton's mother re
ceived a telegram from lakin, announcing
bis sudden death. Orders were telegraphed
that the remains be forwarded to Canan
daigua at once, and an answer came to the,
effect that the body had already been buried J
A second dispatch was sent, instructing the
friends of the young man to exhume the re-i
mains and ship them at once without sparj
ing expense. To this came the answer that
the grave nad Deen roDDea.
The young wife, who had just given birth
to a son, was completely prostrated by the
shock, and her condition was aggravated by
the distressing circumstances related in the
telegrams. The mother, Mrs. Ida Slater,
was able, however, to proceed to Lakin, ac
companied by her uncle, to investigate the
case. There she found two young men who
had been young Eeddington's partners in
real estate operations, who assured her that
her son had been killed by a fall
from a house which he was building, thathii
remains had been properly cared for and
buried with appropriate ceremonies, and
that the grave had been robbed. I
OFFICERS OS XHE TBATXi.
Detectives were employed to investigate
the case, but Mrs. Slater was compelled ts
return with no -satisfactory evidence as to
the disposition of her son's remains. Short
lv after her 'return she was informed thai
the same young men had applied to the Mrii
tual Life Insurance Company Jor the par
mentofa $5.000sbolicy on Eeddington's
life. This, in a'ddition to the mysterious
disappearance of the body, convinced her
that there bad been loul play in connection
with her son's death, and, accompanied by
a Piukerton detective, she went to Lakin
Keddington and his partners, itappeared,
had insured their lives for $5,000 each, mak
ing me policies payauie, in case oi aeatn,
to the survivors, and on advice Mrs. Slater
notified the company that she questioned
the regularity of the proceedings. Evidence
was obtained to arrest the surviving part
ners for fraud, bnt both escaped. One for
feited his bail bond and the other got clear
by reason of a defect in the complaint.
Mrs. Slater despairsd of ever recovering
her sou's remains, but in order to satisfy her
mind she retained the services of the detec
tive, who has been working at the case con
stantly ever since. From clues picked up
at Lakin be concluded that Eedding ton had
either been murdered and his, body con
cealed, or he had been put out of the way
temporarily and was yet alive. He followed
the latter theory, and finally hit upon the
idea of searching the insane asylums. His
patient efforts were soon rewarded, for the
other day he found the young man in an in
sane asylum in the West
Physically, Eeddington is well, but he is
yet suffering from a mental derangement
which dated from the time he was reported
dead. He was heavily drugged by someone,
evidently his young partners, and for many
monthB afterward his mind was a blank. He
wandered through the West and was finally
placed in an asylum, where he gradually
improved, bnt not sufficiently to give a clear
account of the circumstances oi his disap
pearance from Lakin. He writes home that
after three' years' absence he will soon see
home and friends again. His mother, who
was driven nearly insane by the distressing
affair, is in Florida, and has not yet been in
formed of the discovery of her son.

Demand That the Republi

ColtMbus, O., November 26. The Ohio
Wool Growers' Association held a meeting
to-day with a large attendance. Among
those present were David Harpstor, Presi
dent; Hon. Columbus Delano, President of
ihe National Wool Growers' Association,
and Judge William Lawrence. They
adopted an address to the wool growers of
the United States and adopted a resolution
asking the National Association to take the
proper steps to carry out the suggestions
made in the address. The essential features
of the address are:
In view of the imminent danger which
threatens" all ther industries of onr nation, and
especially the production and manufacture of
JWool, tbe wool growers of Ohio urge the neces
sity of unity and activity in order to avert the
peril of free trade or free wool with which
they are now menaced. The wool growers of
Ohio advocate a protective system. A tariff
for revenue will not secure protection.
The result of the last Fresidental election
was an emphatic expression by a large ma
jority of the people in favor ot a comprehend
sire system embracing all onr Industries, in
cluding the protection of wool by name. If the
Republican partr, in its legislative or adminis
trative departments falls to comply with the
expression, it will secure the reproach of in-
iaiacerity or oi inability to perform its duty" "
as wool growers we ass ior sucn legislation
am such administration of existing laws as are
required by tbe deliberate promises made by
thi Republican party prior to the last Presi
deital election. We denounce the injustice of
allowing the carpet industry to damage tbe
wool industry by importing clothing wool under
the false name of carpet wool. Tbe wool grow
ers of the United States are called upon to be
fall- represented in the National Convention
of wool Growers to assemble in Washington,
Decimber 3,1889, Tbey are urged to ask that
Conn-ess shall give the wool and mutton In
dus nr protection to the fall extent of the
mos; favored ot the manufacturing industries.

Harry Brown Thought to Havo Got Away

I rgrCIAI.TELEaBA)I TO TRK DISPATCH.!
New Yobk, November 26. The examina
tion of the accounts' of Marcus Brown, the
shirt manufacturer, who made an assign
ment Saturday last shows that young Harry
Brown, in the year of his partnership with
his father and his cousin, Samuel Brown,
made away with at least $80,000 of the
firm's money, and perhaps $100,000, by bor
rowing on the firm's credit and pocketing
money received in payment of bills.
Thirty thousand dollars of the stolen
money is known to have gone into the
Michigan copper mine speculation. A great
deal more will probably be traced to the
same pit, and the rest is supposed t hare
been lost on the races.

Chicago, November 26. Judge Ma

-rendered a decision reversing the finding of
the lower court in the quo warranto pro

The lower court virtually held that the

Judge Magruder takes the opposite view,
and strongly scores the trust He holds that
all its acts looking to a control of the capi

St. Lotjis, November 26. The National
Silver Convention met at tbe Exposition
building this morning with about 350 dele

spectators. James Campbell called the con

It Is fair to presume that tbere-iSsnot a single

the results of this assembly will depend largely
the degree of prosperity our country will enjo
in the Immediate future. You are not a law
making body it is true, but as all laws are the
results of tbe popular will, and as you have
peen aimost as popuiany sent to represent me
people of this United State, as are the members
of Congress sent to voice tbe will of the people
In Washington, it follows that the Congress of
the United States may find, through your de
liberations and conclusions, that yon are the
latest representatives from thepeopleupoa the
question of the silver coinage Maws, that they
must obey tbe will ot tbe people of the United
States and enact the laws your body cannot
enact which will ei'vo to the twoDleof the
United States the privilege fit coining their
silver as freely as they coin their gold.
A CLEAE KECESSITY.
The gentlemen who will address you upon
the vital questions to be discussed during this
convention will make dear aa noonday" the
necessity for the free and unlimited coinage of
silver, so that no person In the United States
who can read, need be ignorant of the untold"
advantages such a law would aire to this conn
try and also incidentally to tbe entire, world.
In so large an assemblage it would be strange
if there were not those who have soae ;pt
hobby.no doubt very excellent and desirable
in some other convention, but the time f or-sbu
discussion of this monetary question is so briat
that it is boped no extraneous subjects will be
attempted to be pushed, upon the atteatieaef
At the conclusion of his address, the

Among thexa were Geit. A. J. Warser, of
Ohio:.. Senator Stewart of Nevada: Hon.
B. P. Bland, of Missouri, and Mr. Me
Michaels, of Colorado. After a general
discussion and the statement that Senator
Stewart did not desire to be nominated all
of the other names were withdrawn; and
Gen. Warner was elected unanimously.
Mr. Albert Singer, temporary secretary,
was made permanent, with three assistants,
A resolution was also offered in this com
mittee to be recommended to tbe convention
to appointapermanentFxecutive Committee
of one member from each State and Terri
tory, with ten at large, to call a future
convention. The convention reassembled
promptly at 3 r. M. It was decided that the
doors of tbe convention hall be thrown open
to the public Mr. Fitzgerald, of Colorado;
Senator Stewart, of Nevada, and Congress
man Bland, of Missouri, were appointed a
committee to conduct Chairman Warner to
the stage. He was introduced to the con

AIOST IMPOETANT SUBJECT.
Mr. Warner thanked the convention for
the unexpected honor, and said that a sub
ject than which none other affected the peo
ple of the entire world with equal weight
was the silver question. Since Germany, la
1872, followed, later by other European
Sowers and partly by the United States,
emonetized or limited silver as money, the
question uu ueeu a tiuu usuc, siiu la me
discussion bi-metallista had won the vic
tory. The attempt to change the money
standard from gold and silver to gold alone
was worse than a mistake 'was almost a
The men who favored such a course knew
not what the consequences would be on the
they were aided by men who did not realise
the far-reaching results of the change. De
monetization of silver was, in fact, a great
crime, and its revocation was now the im
portant question of the world. "
The -people have suffered more fresa had
monetary legislation than, from any other
cause. What was asked was restoratioa of
the money standard which existed, for ages
that silver be plsced on an equality witk
gold at the ratio which has existed.
A SOLID SIIVEE GAVEL.
H.B.Chamberlin.President of the Denver
Chamber of Commerce, on behalf of that
body,, then presented, in a happy speech, a
solid silver gavel to Chairman Warner. A
number of resolutions to be referred to the
Committee on Resolutions were read and so
recorded. The committee is considered a
very strong one, and it is expected will em
body the wishes of the convention briefly
and so clearly that they will be easily un
derstood. After the reading of a number of Invita
tions for the delegates to attend varieas en
tertainments, and the announcement that
there-would be a reception at theMerchaats'
Exchange to-night, the convention adjourn
ed until 10 o'clock to-morrow morning.
