Potter, King & 00, and Lietenstem & 00., Furniture Dealers; : Burned Out. toss About sllo,Boo—lnßuranco ’ About $75,000. v At 12:45 p. m.; yesterday, flames were Been rising froin the roof of the buildings Nos. 282 to 288 Wabash avenue,' near Van* Biiroii street. The - buildings,; four stories'- high ; and'-fronted with marble, wore owned by ox-Alderman Otis. Tbo lower fldbr of N0.284 was occupied by'Ur Llob-‘ onsteln AOo.; dealers in undertaken ’and l np- ’ bolstering materials,': and tho hppor’floors' by Potter, King A Pp.,.manufacturers ’of furniture,, who also ocouplod ibo storo No. 280 and 288, and, tbo throe floors above. People ran from all direc- s loros wore, abandoned, bustomots and clerks suspondbd operations; and In a'fow mlri-- utoa b groat crowd nod gathered in tho ( vicinity.. It took, the engines an apparently long time to arrive, considering that tbo flames wore spread ing with fatal speed, bating . their way down and', djeombowollng the building, • ' • -• When the ongiyps wore On tho ground no,time Was lost getting onihe streams, but (bo flromon might as welt have boon spitting on tbo burning mass. Th flames roared’.-' and spread without, hindrance, and the Intense boat waSfolta block’ away/ The fourth floor was’ gone before, the water reached It, and tbo third floor was soon seized by the flames, which rose high in the air, and shot out of tbo windows, wbllo clouds of smoko enveloped the' building;' Olio- engines were puffing and blowing on every block, some flromon wore, working, frantically at a hose ele vator, and gallantly climbing it in tbo faco of tho' flames, and of boat that Boomed unendurable across tho street. They remained on tho elevator, but could do no, effective service. They roosted gradually, but on they bung. In tbo meantime tho firo ragbd with Unceasing fury on the south sldo 6f tho building.; Four futilo stroams played on tho front and ono solitary snout of water at .tcmplod to save tbo sldo wall. Tbo pipomop wore recklessly exposing ,themselves bosmo tho walls, and oyorybody expected to boo them crushed when ibo wall fou. It threatened to come' every minute. It was six’ inches out of tbo pbrpendlonlar, and began to totter, and in a fow minutes down It oamo with a tremendous crash. Tho crowd yelled, and the flromon rushed to And who woe killed. Nobody. They very wisely" got out..of tho way for a mo ment; and then rushed in again * to play tho hoso on ibo building.. It' was no use. Thoro was a plentiful look of Lake Michigan. Tho firo burnoa on. and tbo flromon worked os well as mon oould work’ under the circumstances. Tbo front of tbo’ building, licked "by tho flames, crocked oblppoa off, tho pieces flying out in tho roadway/ In naif an hoar tho oatlro struoturo was in - flames, tbo smoke rose in groat gusts, obscuring tbo sun, and thousands oi pooplo wore I oolong at tbo scone. Thoro was no hope for tbo boilc& log, but tho flromon continued tholr vain effort to subduo tboir onomy; Tho most aotlvo man around tho promises was Commissioner Wright. Ho did ; more service than oil tbo Marshals combined, not omitting tho Chief. Ho was cool and cle&r-hoadod, and did not disdain to lift a ladder and haul hoso when, necessary. Ho would make an excellent Firo Marshal. Tho Mayor was on tho grotmcL. and tho police under Copt, Hickoy and Borgt. Buckley. It was foarod tbo * adjoining buildings would succumb, but tbo walls word thick. and withstood tbo hdat. • Von Cott & Co.’s Jewelry store'was In* danger, and so was tbo Methodist Book Concern at the roar. of. tho ruined building. > The- Rov; Dr. Fowler and Aid. Dixon wdro present, ahx-‘ iously watching tbo safety of an establishment In which they wore deeply and religiously con cerned. Tlio building was singed, but.tho man ager said they suffered no loss, and ho ought to know.’ , , • ... The'proprietors.and workmen connected with the establishments that wore reduced to ashes were very much affected. Tw*o of the workmen wore crying oh the sidewalk, aa they related their Borrow for th 6 disaster,. There were some thirty men employed in Potter, King & Co.’s. The workahop.waa in the upper floor. Various theories wore circulated as to the cause of the disaster, the most authentic being that a lot of dry material used for stuffing chairs caught fire near the elevator..aottlng-flro to the elevator,severing thoropee which hold it, allowing It to drop.amass of' flames to the bottom of the' building, whence it communicated to everything around, and soon there woe a roaring column'Of Are reaching from the bottom of the null ding to the top. , , . >• Tho. fire might have,boon.conquered at on early stage, had the FiroDopartmont boon noti fied, SO that they could havo .reached the build ing twenty minutes sooner, and then had plenty of water to pour oh-lt and a brick dividing wall to confine > the fire within a smaller‘space. For some reason the alarm was delayed; for some other reason the main.on Wabash avenue is small and inadequate, and for some other reason' there was" no brick wall. The building, which was now and handsome, yesterday, stands to day a .blackened ruin. Much sympathy was expressed for the owner of the building and its occupants. With praiseworthy energy, the building was .raised and filled .with valuable goods, oiid it is hard that such pluck and enter prise should moot no bettor luck. Following .Is an account of the losses and insurances. The whole block, which embraced Nos. 280. 282.284, 280, and 288 Wabash avenue, is owned by James E. Otis, and coat 850,000. A fire-wall separated 280 from 282, dividing the block into two buildings,, and to this foot, more than any other, is duo the present condition of the north store. The , roof of this structure was partially destroyed, but the. floors . ore intact: 8,1,000 will cover the damage.* The south store, which included Nos. 284, 28G. and 288 wero almost totally de stroyed, involving a loss of about 828.000. There is 880.000 insurance on the block, divided among the following companies: Underwriters’ Agency, 610,000.; Loudon, Liverpool, and Globe, 86,000; Traders’, Chicago, $5,000 ; Girard, 85.O00; and Commercial Union, London, $6,000.

The flrat floor of No. 281 was occupied by H. lilebooetoin’d; Oo.,'dealers In furniture. Their stock, valued at 850,000, was totally destroyed. It Is insured .for $31,000, in tho oompanios named London Assurance Association, $5.000; Manufacturers’. of Boston, $2,000 ; WUnamsburg City, $5,000; Franklin; of Indianapolis, $2,500.

Such a bourse would not seriously affect the Northwestern, ROck Island, or Obiohgo, 'Burlington k, Quincy, bat It would bo death 1 to tbo Illinois Central, and would, starvo tbo Alton <k Bt.

TUB PASS QUESTION was also.considered.' Mr. -Walker; President of the Chicago, Burlington AQuincy Railroad, eub mlttod a 6Treeping resolution that all passes bo canceled on tho Ist prox., and that, henceforth, over? person who should travel upon tho several railroads ehcmldpay full fare.’ ■ Officers wore not to pass over their own linos. No exception was to bo made.. To this roeolution only a quasi con currence' was. given.- Mr. S. 0. Morrill, of tho Milwaukee A St. Paul, and Mr. Biddlo, of tho Bock -Island, declined to rooord thoir views until. after . consultation with their • execu tive offloera; In. Now . York. Ponding this consultation r tho. mooting adjourned un tll to-day, whoa .the resolution Is. to come up‘for adoption, modification: or rojtotlon. Mr. Tracy expressed his ontlre.willlngnoßS to have all pass es canceled forthwith. Several of the Directors in-tho different roads think it expedient to let ih? passes expire by limitation, and positlvo ly:rofUßo:to renew any. They arc likewise In fa vor of some device by which tho offloera shall bo privileged to travel over thoir own roads without paying their way./j ■ ■ The question is not a now one. It Is a raro sport, and, Uko all evils, has spread rapidly; still It is by no moans certain that they will to-day have the nerve nmd tho sagacity-to out tho cankor out. . Should they do so, however, it would doubtless include all excursion parties. - clergymen, and others, who have heretofore had tho benefit of reduced fares. I . • THA.T “.POOL.” There is sufficient uncertainty regarding the severed pondingrailroad elections to invest them ■ with an air of interest. Around tho Milwaukee, St. Paul, and tho : Chicago A' Northwestern tho rumors are thickest./ Ever since the latter qnlot ly withdrew from. the 'fiercely-contested land grant fight in tho Wisconsin- -Legislature, start ling stories Have been current. Long ago it was said they intended :to pool ” thoir earnings, but have not done so yot. .The rejection of the grant by the Milwaukee. A . St. Paul Company has evoked a hostility that no 1 Company would .bo, in, - baste to share. Judicial opinidns have booh rendered regarding tho Jegality.of such .a combination. Some such movement was . anticipated in ’G7, when the Legislature bnactbd’a law forbidding tho Oompanioe to consolidate or to own or operate any portion of .tho railroad of tho other. Although the law dpos not.spoqify “pooling,”— that boingof subsequent growth—tho Assistant Attofney-Gohoral‘.declares that such arrange* ment' would violate tho spirit of tho law. Of course, men so shrewd os the Directors and man agers of these enterprises are not blind to the requirements of the law. and will not - wittingly risk the forfeiture of thoir charters nor any other serious penalties 1 ' - IN WIBCOKBIK. •The report la fciiculatod that Mr. Alexander Mitchell, anxious to visit his “native heath,’’ will resign the Presidency of the St. Paul Com pany and go to Europe, Mr. Morrill, tho same authority states, is also io bo placed; on "the ro - tired list. Both statements should bo taken with large Igralns of allowance.' Their mooting for the election of Directors occurs on the 11th hist. DISTINQDISUED AUDITALB. . Tho annual election of tho Northwest ern Company occurs on Thursday, tho 6th. Augustus Bobell -is already, hero. Horace F. Olarklwlll be, and unreliable rumor says Jay Gould is on route. During tho recent famous “comer" the Clark-Gould party got control of ibei ‘ common stock. Of course, this does not givn them control of tho election, but It enables them to demand certain concessions. Mr. J. L, Ton Havo Frzn, of. Amsterdam, Holland, who wields tho very powerful Gorman and Batch in terest! arrived in Now York three weeks ago, and bos boon In Chicago for several days past. Ho is accompanied by Mr. A. G. Bulman, a broker of Now York, bis American representative, and Hmaolf a Director both of ; tjio Bock . Island and Northwestern Companies. They have been up to Escauaba and beyond into the iron region. They will re main some little time after the annual mooting. Mr. M. L. Sykes. Jr., Vico President of tho Northwestern, and & H. Porter, resident Direc tor, are also of tho party. Mr. John F. Tracy, President of that and the Book Island Boad, ar rived several days ago, but has remained princi pally In his rooms in tho Pacific Hotel. Mr. B. P. k lower, another New York broker, who votes tho Henry Keep stock, arrived ou Sunday morn ing to participate in tuo election. .... THE PROBABILITY IS that tlio old will bo continued in power, and that the works they have undertaken will bo ordered forward to speedy completion. At the annual mootings—or, rather, at tho succeeding Board meetings—tho expediency of prosecuting new projects Is discussed and decided. For that reason', < therefore, oonsldorablo public interest attaches to their deliberations aud decisions. AMHERST COLLEGE.

Man, as a rule, did not boliovo in. universal poooo. Wo bod not oomo to I that healthy' fooling yet. War was .not ahuumlVlgatod evil; cannon balls plowed,for rows tbat the eoeds -of poaco' might blossom. This might bo construed by somo as an address for war; but. not so. Tho true principles of J cans wore laid down on tbo Mount; It was that of non-resistance. This was not tbo first moot ing in, favor of poaco. Charles Fox bad organized a few gatheringsTri the peace’interest. The Qo nova arbitration was tho fruits*of poaco policy. Tbo conduct of our Government towards tho In diabs was the' fruit of poaco policy., He bad been asked to spook on two branches of this subject of poaoo, but lot itpass for this occasion. Going Into a concert at times, bo had hoard mu sicians tuning tholr instruments'; it was a chaos of : sound. •• At last ...thoi/ loader came; and , tho . movement - began, and wont through tho varying words of tlio composition In' ond vast swell of harmony.

Ho was to ad dress them on woman’s influence for poaco. Wo nro brothers; children of ono common father. It was necessary to spook of the ex cellencies of woman, and tho speaker dldl so. cataloguing thorn off to tbo outsido limits, summing np by showing- that woman’s power was tremendous. - Sbo cannot bring peace till sbo removes tbo necessity of war. Bho can go back of war and remove the troubles of men. Ho didn’t protend to say any thing very flowery of what sbo can do, but If this was a beginning of tho oxoroiso of her power, tho roamt would appear, somo day or other. The Rev. Mr. Obamborlaln being called for. 'thought bo would rothor not. speak. Ho did not quito boo what was going on boro.. Ho bad seen no sohodulo of topics, and know nothing of the objects. If ho hod to convince any disbeliever as to.the necessity of .poaoo ho’would do it. Tho President appealed to Mr. Chamberlain. , . Mr. Chamberlain thought Mrs'. Doggett might toll them her views in a conversational-way. Mr. Wendt asked Mr. Chamberlain to do as tho disciples did, and put courage in oaoh oth er's beans.: Mr. Ohamborlaln sat looking at tho ground, smiling peacefully. ‘ Tho Chairman thought Mrs. Doggott would confer a favor by talking to thorn. 1 * Mrs. Doggott, thus appealed to, spoko conver sationally, - without • rising, as to Mrs. Howe's peaco movement. She thought that'women! in some way , she was not clear now, could do some thing to prevent men blowing oaoh other's brains up, somehow. Women devoted their lives to bringing up men, aod tho State camo 'ln and stole thoir lives. Alter tho German War a Gor man woman said to hor: “Wo have for years and years feared France; wo. have always feared she would como across the border and take away our liberty. ■ • Now things are worse, and - wo ,800 our sons scattering oil over the world.” Mrs. Howe thought the ladies should 1 got together and have a little music, and talk j themselves into a good stato of minty for working in tho cause cf peace.

Mr. Wondto wanted to know why they shouldn’t havo a peace society; and no one ob jecting,.. ho moved formally that the mooting organize Itself into a peace society. Before this could be done, a gentleman, who, from his conversation, must bo an Englishman, a Mr. Phillips, proposed to toll what ho know as to the- English.

Unless considerable increase in payments was secured It would bo nooossaiy to borrow a largo amount of money to pay thb July interest on tbo city debt and run the various departments. Usually the city did' not go to borrowing until later in the season,, but, though the Collector had resorted to all ex pedients, the people would not pay, and it was necessary, to pass tho order directing the turning over of tuo books to tho County Treasurer as soon as possible. Tho matter was referred to tho Finance Com mittee. VERNON AVENUE. Tho ordinance for opening Vernon avenue to Thirty-ninth street was taken up. Aid.

Tho proposed ordinance might bo still further amended by providing for allow ing merely tho sale of boor and wino on Sunday. Tbo Sunday-closing ordlnanoo certainly was not observed now, oxcopt on streets whore tho police wore constantly passing. In some parts of tho city tho saloons woro constantly open, and so woro tho bars of tho hotels, if somo men thus violated tho law, and mado money by it, it scorned a moro act of. Justice to modify the law, so that all woro treated equally. Every Sunday two saloons woro open all day, In tho town of Luko View, Just across tho oity boundary, aud many of tbo strong advocates of temperance woro in tho habit of' stopping thoro, and getting their beer liko ordinary mortals. Tbo temperance people woro very well aware tho law could not bo ouforood, aud .made no effort, personally, to carry it out. Tho groat trouble arose from giving licenses to irresponsU bio persons. Many people of bad character hod. them. Thoro was tho place to begin tho reform,,' aud the ponding ordinance should bo so amend ed os to provide that thoro should bo discrimina tion in granting licenses. ' ', Aid.
