occupied a house to tho rear of Coyne's

was complete. John Lowry's new resi

ago, was insured partially, but tho loss

EXTENT OF THE LOSS 118.
The homes to the north, excepting
that of Timothy Lydon, were insured
and the loss to the owners will not bo
so great. A total list of tho damage is
appndod : .
The first impression was that a lamp
exploded in the cellar of Coyne's store,
but every member of Coyne's family
declares positively that there was no
lamp left burning in the cellar nftpr
the store was closed up for the night.
John J. Coyno is firmly of tho belief
that his store was set ou firo nnd, nl
tbongh he baa no substantial ground
on which to base his nssertion, he
thinks the fire was started for the pur
pose of robbery.
A HOUSE LOOTED.
The dwelling of Tbomaa Mnrphy,
ou Vine street, was robbed of $:J50 in
the excitement. Mr. Murphy and
family left the house- unlocked nnd
after tho fire was over, when thoy en
turned the trunk in the bed room was
burst open and that amount stolen.
Other families complain of having
missed small amounts of money, and
the general impression is that the fire

Youterday afternoon searchers in the
ruins of tho Coyne building found
a lump of gold as large as
an inkstand crusted together. The
valuo of the gold is considered to rep

Mra. Coyne had stored away in bor
trnnk along with $350 in greenbacks.
At 8 o'clock yesterday morning Col
onel E. II. RippTj drove to Minookn
and looked over the ruined bonus, lie
acquainted himself with the amount of
loan and having been satisfied of the
destitution which will follow the fire,
he ordered that a statement of

that an appeal to tho public will be

Sayi That He Mads the Bridg-a Plana
With No Company Aiaiatancs.
The etatement of Mr. Sweenoy, of com
mon council, that City Enginoer Phillips
did not make the bridge plans which were
submitted by him, and the intimation that
the Pottsvillo Iron and Bridge company
was permitted to suggest just how tho
bridges should bo built, has brought forth
a vigorous donial from Mr. Phillips.
"Myself nnd corps," said Mr. Pholps.
"drew these plans andfpecilications and I
was not inilnoured by any company In any
of my actions. Neither the Pottavill Iron
and Bridgo company nor any other bridge
company Baw those plans before thoy were
submitted. All these l suspicions arise
from the fact that Mr. Brown of the King
Bridgo company and Mr. Lewis of tl
Pottsville company wore in the city on tLe
evening when the Lindon street bridge
plans went to select council. Each sus
pects that tbe other bad something to do
witn tho working of tbe plans and hence
all this discussion."

SKETCH OF HIS CAREER.
Everett Warren was born in Scranton,
Aug. 27, 150. His father, II. F. Warren,
now head bookkeeper nt the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Wostem car shops,
was one of tho early settlers of Scranton,
having located there in lf-53, when the en
tiro population ot what is uow the fourth
city in the stato comprised less thnu 1,00'J
In his twelfth year, nf ter having at
tended tho public schools, Everett was
iired with the ambition to actmiro a col
legiate education. In order to prepare
iiiinseii lor numisiion to college young
Warren studied Latin and Greek in Mer
rill's Academic school, paying his tuition
mere oy money earned by working in tho
mornings, ns carrier boy for tho Scranton
Republican and Times, while tho latter
paper was conducted by Aaron Augustus
After a year's service as cash bov iu tho
old Boston store, the young man became a
clerk in A. II. Wir.ton's law ofiic i. This
probably docided bis futuro career. The
environment of n law ollico seemed na
tural to him. In 1T3 lie entered tho
ollico of Hand fc Post, tho senior partner
iu which Hon. Alfred Hand, lifter became
a justice of tho supreme court of Pennsyl
vania. For two years young Warren acted
ns law clerk, ollico boy and general
factotum, receiving therefor a modest
salary, three-fourths of which was promptly
paid over, as s on nr recoived, to Frank
Bentloy, who, in the evenings, heard War
ren recito his studies preparatory to en
tering Yalo university.
OI K for YAI.R.
It was not until in tho full of 1S77 thnt
Everett Warron felt prnparod to start for
New Haven "to college," Tho circum
stances of that journey are interesting as
illustrating tho possibilities open iu this
country to nil who have energy enough to
seize them. Major Warren speaks of tho
event with Borne reserve, but those inti
mate witn nun at the tltuo recall with iu
terest that when ho began his university
carter, he had altogether only $10 in
money: and, iu order to economizo iu cart
age, wheeled his own trunk to tho depot
under cover of the night. Notwithstand
ing this modest beginning, his university
career was einiiieiitly snceu-isful. Iu addi
tion to graduating with credit iu lbSl
Major Warren, while at Yale, helped to
establish the Yale News, which speedily
became the leading collego newspaper in
the country: mid was anionic the foremost
of his class iu literary nud i'orseuic work.
immediately after his graduation Major
Warren resumed the study of law, this
time in tho ollico of E. N. Willard, thou
as now the lending attorney ot tho Lacka
wanna bar. In September, lSSJ, Major
Warron was admitted to tho bar nnd ou
the same dny became Mr. Willard's! junior
paitner, the firm name changing to Wil-
naru c warren, t or ten years this linn
remained unchanged. With increajiiiL'
years Mr. Willard ha gradually trans
ferred the bulk of active practice iu tLe
courts upon Major Warren's nhouldors, re
serving for himself the duties of confiden
tial adviser and counsel. Under thoso cir
cumstances the legal busiuess of the firm
became so great that July 1, 1802, Judge
H. A'.Knapp was admitted as a third mem

AN U.NFUNCUINO REPUBLICAN.
In politics Everett Warren has been,
under any and all circumstances, a Btol-
wart Republican. Thore is a ruilitnut
strain in his make-up which permits no
surrender and no compromise. A hard
fighter for his friends before convention,
he bocamo no lfss a champion of the con
vention's nominees afterward. Ho has
never bolted and never scratched a Repub
lican ticket, and has never counted the cost
of advocating Republican principles.
Whon in 1(587, iu the oldChickering hall,
iu New York, there nsf-embled the first
convention ot the newly organized Nation
al Lengne of Republican clubi. Major War
ren was present ns n delegate from the
Central Republican club of Scranton, to
gether with lion. Louis A. Watres:
and iu tho subsequent election of
iNutional league ollicers was tho
unanimous choice of tho Pennsvlvanin
delegotion for treasurer. In the follow
ing April, whon tho State league organ
ized nt Lancaster by the olection of Hon.
Edwin S. Stuart, of Philadelphia as nresi-
dent. Major Wurron was chosen the first
or three vice presidents. Tho spirited bat
tle for the league presidency nt the Scran
ton convention three years ago is well re
niomberod. In that contost Major Warron
was urged by liiuuy friends to enter as a
coinpromiso candidate between Congress
men "Jack" Robinson, of Media, and Johu
Dalzell, of Pittsburg. Ho did not wiu tho
battle, but ho won many uow and staunch
friomU who, recoguizlng tho odds at
which bo fought them, decided to remem
ber him in the future. At the Reading
convention, one your ago, Major Warren
was again chosen one of the vice presi
dents of tho league, nnd his election to the
presidency at the forthcoming Hnrrisburg
convention will, therefore, come to him
fairly, in tho nature of a well-desorvod
HIS MILITARY RECORD,
Apart from league matters Major War
ren has many times beou n dolegatn from
bis own election district to Republican
state and county conventions: has been
chairman of the Scranton city Republican
committee; has nerved as socrotary of the
county committee and ns a member of tho
county executive committee; is vice presi
dent of the influential Central Republican
club nnd incident of the Ninth Ward Re
publican club, nnd bos participated ac
tively nnd zealously in overy campaiirn,
local, state aud national, sinco he bueanio
a voter. As a campaign orator Major War
ren lias few superiors among tho younger
members of the party, a fact well attested
by his popularity with New York and
Pennsylvania audiences, to whom no has
repeatedly been sent by campaign mana
geis. Major Warren's military titlo is derived
through active and honorable membership
in tho Pennsylvania National guard. In
IV1 ho enlisted as a privato in A com
pany of tho crack Thirteenth regi
ment, under Cnptaiu, now Lieutenant
Governor, Louis A. Watres. After
three years' sorvico tn tho ranks, Privato
Warren became sergeant-major, then ndjti
tant nnd finally judgo advocate of tho
Third brigade, with tho rank or major on
General J. P. S. Gobin's stall'. After a con
tinuous service of over ten years Major
Warron resigned as judgo ndvocato in lkll
and withdrew from tho guard.
THE LEAGUE'S TRUE MISSION.
Asked his opinion of the State leacruo
and its work, Mr. Warreusaid: "It can
be mado nn admirable auxiliary in tho
education of the younger voters in Repub
lican principles; but the league should re
main within its proper province aud not
permit itself to bo used as tho nursory for
any man's personal ambitions. I do not
mean by this that tho Republican who is
earnest and efficient in league work should
necessarily uod'iuarreQ troin nope of party
preferment. But I regard ii as a falso
notion that the league should be restricted
in its scope to tho campaign necessities of
any mau or number of men who would
like, to uso tho lcaguo merely as a means
to tue attainment or their own ends. My
idea of loyalty is so strong that, rather
than bo tho means of crippling tho useful
ness of this splendid organization of the
aggressive young Republicanism ot our
commonwealth, 1 would willingly forego
any political aspirations of my own which
nngut clash with tho leacne s best inter
