CUTLER BE VIR1LT IN J C RE O. A ST*? explosion occurred at tbe Cipltol \ about half- past 3o'clock yciter lay afternoon in a small room need for storing documents under the east stairway of the Senate near tbe restaurant, by which Mr. John King, bead carpenter, uuder tbe 8 a per vising Archi tect, was so severely Injur*! that bis deatb resulted a little after 7 o'clock p. m., and 8. B. Cutler, assistant superintendent of the document foidit g room, was severely In jured. Tbe eo4.ca**lon was distinctly felt throughout the entire building. The halls on the south side were filled with "raoke and stifling gatses, and it was with considerable difficulty that the scene of the explosion could be reached. Carpenters had been em ihoyed for some davs pant placing shelves In the room for the purpose of storing there a lot of books from the folding room. The only opening to this room, where the explo sion occurred, was the door leading Into It. HOW THE EXPLOSION OCCURRED. There was a bracket gas light over the door, and some of the employes on leaving tbe room must, In turning off tbe gas, have turned It on again without knowing it, there being no check on the key. which,on account of its height from the floor, was usually turned with a suck. The room was thus filled with tbe escaped gas. In the afternoon Captain Cutler with Mr. King went to the room to ?ee after the shelving. Mr. King, ui locking tfce door, entered the rcom, fol lowed by Captain Cutler a few feet behind. The room being very dark, they both stepped back towards the door, as the smell of gas was oppressive. When Mr. King reached the d?-;or he struck a match, and instautly a tremendous explosion occurred, both being thrown with great force against the wall on the opposite side of the hall. FKU.HTFUL INJURIES OF MR. KING. W r. K 'iv was forced against the door Jam, which r.actured both his knees, and pieces 11 the door and easb, which were blown off, cnt his face and neck In a frightful manner. He was also shockingly burned about the hrsderd arm*. When found ho was dou bled up on the tloor of the ball, his head and breast having fallen forward upon his legs. A gash was found extending half way from the nose to the ear over the right eyebrow, the rlgbt tiiigh broken and the bone protrud ing through the flesh. At first he was sup posed to be dead, but Anally was seen to gt?sp, when restoratives were applied by some physicians present, and be was re moved at once to Providence hospital. CAPTAIN CCTLER WAS STUNNED, ??nd presented a frightful appearance with h s face, neck and hands blistered, hair and whiskers staged close to the skin, but no bones were broken. He was taken Into the room of the Sergeant at Arms, suffering gieat rain,and SenatorsWltbersand.Dennls, both belonging to the medical profession, attended blm, and after bis wounds were dressed he waa removed to his home. l)r. McCoy, who is attending him. reports htm badly burned, but that he has no internal injuries, and, if erysipelas does not set In, will recover. DEATH OF MR. KINO. Mr. King was attended on bis arrival at Providence Hospital by Drs. J. E. Brackett and Beall, who dressed bis wounds and, after administering opiates, made a more extenl ed examination of his Injuries and decided that nothing could be doue to save his life, as the concussion bad done Its work. He lingered till after 7 o'cIook, when death relieved him of bis sufferings. Mr. Klug was about fifty years old, of good reputation for integrity, and be leaves a family who reside on Cth, between H and I streets, north west. FORCE or THE SHOCK. The door to tne room was torn from Its binges and dashed against the opposite wall, sbiverlDg it to pieces. The wall was dls figured and torn, and in one plase Is to be seen the prints of Mr. King's hand, with por tions of the blistered skin still clinging to tbe bard finish. Tbe walls are blistered and blackened by the heat, and such was the force of concussion that after turning two angles, at least forty or fifty feet from where it occurred, the transom at the head of the Senate stairs was dashed into tne room of the official reporters of the Senate, causing no little consternation among that diligent corps. The doors of the 8euate restaurant were slammed to and fro. and a hat rack standing in a second room against double dcors broker1 u pieces. The cashier of the restaurant wa? thrown violently back against the waa. Tbe IctItsI Work. The revival meeting at the Assembly church yesterday was addressed by Iiav.

All the policemen In that pre cinct bad either been converted or were under conviction, and were inquiring the way. Tbe boose was too small, and last night numbers were standing on the outside. Mr. Hammond remarked that they wanted workers there, and he urged that the work ers go to the meetings.

THI FIRST RACE was a c'e*h of 1 % mlln, for all ages. Purse, *2:5 to the first horse, $75 to tbe second, and 950 to tbe third. The following horses were entered: Cariboo, Ore Kaob, Enllster, Leader. Jack Trigg, and Danville. Leader was the favorite In tbe pools, with Enllster second. Jack Trigg and Enllster failed to start Danville got away first, with Leader second.and Ore Knob third. Loader pressed Danville closely at first, bot gradually fell back to the third place. Tbe fourth quarter was fatal to Danville, who was compelled to take the third plaoe. Ore Knob racoeeded in obtaining and keeping the lead, coming in winner, with Cariboo second, Danville third, and Leader, tbe favorite, last. Time, 2:15*. TIIK SECOND RACE was a selling race for all ages. Parse ?350, one and an eighth miles. 8pringlet, Spend rift. Jest, Fairy Queen, Keene Richards, Bill Monday, Denver, Alecto,and Nettle B. were entered. Spendnft was decidedly the favor ite, with Sprlnglet second. After several false starts, the word was given, with Jest leading at the judges stand. Before the third quarter was reached Spendrlft, the favorite, sur ceded in getting the lead ard came across the line an easy winner, Springlet stcoiid, ai.d Bill Monday third, tne rest strung out. Time, 2GS#. THE THIKD RACE was for all ages, mile heals. Purse, ?t00, #1(0 to second horse. Paladin, Rjrauey, Alton. Burgoo, and Hartland were entered for ti ls race. Alton was the favorite. Fint Heal?The first attempt at a start was a failure, hut Alton ran bard at lea-t three quarters of a mile before he could be chccktd. After considerable trouble the word was given, Hartland leading. The horses kept well bunched, however, but Bur goo succeeded in winning the heat, Alton second, Paladin third, Hartland fourth, and Ilomr.ey last. Time, 1:49 Second Heat.?Burgoo was now the favorite.

Paladin was decidedly the favorite, buta close contest was expected, and Burgoo still bad bacEtrs, who took tbe large odds offered. At the first attempt the word was given, when Burgoo was at least three lengths ahead. Paladin's rider at first evi dently thought it was not a ?'go," and the spectators thought It sbon Id not have been. Burgoo had too much of a lead from tbe start, and Paladin was unable to catch blm, although he worked well. Burgoo came In winner of tbe heat and race. Time, 1.51. Great dissatisfaction was expressed, not only by tbe backers of Paladin, but by dis interested spectators, that the starter should give the word when Burgoo was so far ahead. ? Board of Health. THE ABATTOIR QUESTION DI8CD9SED, ETC. A meeting of the Board of Health was beld last evening, and Mr. Marbury, from the finance committee, made a report fixing the bond of tbe pound master at 81,000. The report of the registrar of VITAL STATI8TIC9 was presented, showing the mortality of the District of Columbia for the week ending May 13, was &5 (5 less than last week) or at tbe rate of 21.125 per 1,000 per annum. In crease of the population by blrtbs (reported) over deaths 5, or at the rate of 1.625 per 1,000 per annum. Bate of mortality of tbe white population 15 826 per 1,000 per annum; colored 54 667 per 1,000. Births reported 70-whlte 44, colored 26. Rale of Increase of the white population by births over deaths, 4070 per annum; decrease of colored by deaths over births, 4.622 per 1,000 per annum. Deaths corresponding week 1875?white 30, colored 32; total, 62; or at the rate of 20.150 per 1,800 per annum. There were 35 deaths of whites (14 minors) and 30 colored (20 minors), 16 be ing under 3 years of age. There were 12 deaths from consumption, 7 pneumonia, 4 scarlet fever, 4 Infantile convulsions, 3 old age. ncisances. The health officer submitted a report on various cases of alleged nuisances, among them one of a concrete establishment near the Circle, <22d street and Pennsylvania av- 1 eDne.) which he reparts was complained of last July, w hen be stated that there was no ordlnai.ee of the board which would prohibit the nuisance. Tbe subject was referred to thp sanitary committee. On the recommendation of the health offl- ' cer, the wood structure and premises No. 513 23d street northwest, and the open sewer under frame house No. 451 H street north west, were declared nuisances Injurious to health, and their abatement ordered. THE NATIONAL ABATTOIR BILL 1 was taken up, and a delegation of butchers Messrs. J. R. Kelly, J. A. Hoffman, Ed. H. Brcoke, Theo. Barnes, B. W. Gheen, J. J. Lightfoot, Henry Llnklns. Kengla?were present with Messrs. W. E. Clark and G. W. Oyster; also Messrs. Ellenger, Brenner and Loone, of Baltimore. The butchers were ac companied by Mr. R. K. Elliot, as counsel, for the purpose of protesting against th* board taking favorable action In reference to tbe bill. Mr. Elliot said that the question Involved was whether that business of tbe butchers should be abolished, as it certainly would be if tbe bill went Into effect. To compel every butcher and farmer .to patronize the abattoir would Involve the destruction of our property. It was a monopoly not only as to the killing, but as to tbe Introduction of cattle, and It alms at a single blow to con fiscate tbe property of two or three bundred butchers or tbe District, and enacts that tbe butcher, although be should live next door to the abattoir, must go in there to do bis killing. Is tbe slaughter of 500 animals at ten or more places, any more deleterious to health than tbe slaughter at one place? He read a remonstrance which tbe butchers pro pose to present to Congress, stating that tbe fees (?125 per bead,) are exorbitant, and that taking tbe number of cattle nowslaogb tered as a basis, tbe revenue per year would be about S13P,000. This money would not come ontof the butchers, for they were sharp enough not to pay It themselves, and there fore tbe people would have to pay It. It was a scbeme to take from two hundred people and give to six; to rob tbe many and enrich the few. Mr. Jeremiah M. Wilson, for tbe corpora tors, said that In every place where tbe abat toir project had been mooted there was op position, but this opposition generally gave way to favorable recommendation, and he called attention to the abattoirs in Europe, In Boston, New York and New Orleans, and said such projects are now recommended in Cincinnati and Baltimore. That In Jersey City Is a most extensive establishment, within 250 feet of the docks of the Canard steamers, and created no nnisauce. Mr. Hoffman, on tbe part of the batchers, said that the parties who were urging this bill had asked the Maryland legislature for a similar measure. He claimed that slaugh ter houses could be kept In goed sanitary condition, and called attention to tbe fast that slaughter-houses were in Baltimore di rectly on tbe street, and also to the butcher* as a class being healthy. He called atten tion to the appearance or tbe butchers present, and to Mr. Wilson be said:?"I would like you to spend a month at my slaugbtcr bouie, for I believe It would make yoa healthy." IMr. Wilson?"I am as healthy as you are, to-day."] They bad no objection to an abattoir, bat don't give them a monop oly; they bad been smarting under tbe mar ket monopoly. These men would, If they coald, raise tbe price of beef to fifty cents r Mr. Llnklns remarked that If they had an abattoir tbe price of beef woald oe cheaper, for it was tbe present drove yard which kept up tbe price, aud there was nothing bat rub* bish sold at this yard. As for tbe destruction of property, be claimed that the butchers could get at least one-fifth more for their property if tbe slaughter bouses were re moved. He claimed that there weald be no loss to tbe batcbers but gala, and be denied that such number of cattle are slaughtered here as is stated In tbe remonstrance. This concluded tbe bearing, and the board adjourned. ? a Building Permits issued by Its pee tor Plowman: C. H. Jordan, west side 12th, be tween E end F streets northwest, a private stable; HV. J.
