The Deadly Cigarette Bets Fire to a Six
Story New York Tenement House.
The six-story building filled with sweat
hops at Nos. 10 and 12 Montgorery street,
New Y'ork, caught fire and in the panic
that resulted four people were killed, two
fatally injured and five sustained lesser
injuries. The fire started under the stairs,
and it is supposed was caused by a light -d
cigarette being thrown into a pile of rub
bish. When the Inmates of the building, about
250 in number, became aware ol their dan
ger there was a rush to the lire escapes, and
as the people cou'd not all get out at once
there whs a light for precedence. A number
of people on the eco d Door Jumped from
the window. The list of dead ia as follows
Celia Davis, 13 years old; Akivos Itoox, 28
years old. 11 usuan tailor; Joseph Hender
son, Russian tailor, 20 years old; Annie
Katzen, 16 years old. The damage to the
building was less than (5,000.

The treasury net gold has increased from
(89,000.000 to (01.300.00 1 and the demand
for small money in the West will have the
effect to further increase the treasury gold.
The rate of exchange is sufficiently high to
warrant the shipment of gold abroad, but
the fact that commerce! paper ia lor sale in

were much larger than they will be In June

largely every day. The receipts for May
