Kingfisher. Ox., July 26.—[Special.]
Pond Creek and Enid demurred to the
jurisdiction of ludge McAtee in trying
their cases iu other than the counties
in which the alleged offenses were
committed. Judge McAtee sustained
the demurrer aud will hold prelimina-
ry examinations at county seats of L
aud O counties. The Kingfisher band
escorted the boys to the depot amid
shouts from hundreds of throats and
the waving of handkerchiefs from the
fair sex. Hundreds of Kingfisher's
citizens escorted the PondCreekers aud
bnid boys to the depot.
It is thought here that the entire
trouble between the citizens of Enid
uutl I'ond Creek on the one hand, and
the Hock Island road on the other,
will soon come to an end which will
I it* satisfactory to all parties. It is
also thought that the Injunctions
against the citizens of these places
will be dissolved. The injunctions
were issued by .lu lg«- McAtee on the
misrepresentations, it is said, of sym-
pathizers or agents of the railway,
and were very sweeping, not only on
account of the number of people
against whom they were directed, but
on account of the fact that the^ re-
strained the people from even talking
about the situation. The names of
the parties enjoined are as follows:

Washington. July 20.—The Knox
stables on U street, the Adams Ex-
press Co.'s stables, eight two-story
houses on the alley north of tin* lvnox
building and two small frame houses
back of the Adams' stables were de-
stroyed by fire early this morning and
six or eight residences were more or
less damaged. The total loss will ex-
ceed $250,000. The cause of the lire is
The bodies of the following named
firemen, crushed to death under fall-
ing walls, have been recovered: Sam-
uel E. Mastin, Michael Fen ton and
The above were firemen of No. 1 com-
pany. A number of firemen were in-
jured and one of the Knox stable em-
ployes was burned and may die. Fully
a dozen firemen and policemen were
overcome by heat and had to be carried
to places of safety.
About 250 heavy draught horses,
nearly all the companies' express
wagons and the contents of the large
storage building were burned. The
Adams Express Co.'s stable, adjoining
the Knox building to the north, was
almost entirely consumed. About 150
horses were in the Adams Express Co.'s
stables, but all were taken out by the
hardest kind of work on the part of
citizens and policemen.
A number of men were sleeping in
the Knox building and were awakened
about 2:30 a. m. by smoke. They found
the entire rear of the second floor of
the building in flames and had hardly
time to escape with their lives, lief ore
they had left the building the flames
had communicated to the three-story
rear part of the Adams stables. A gen-
eral alarm was turned in soon after
and the entire tire department of the
city called out.
A hundred men ran into the Adams
stables, and cutting loose l.* 0 horses,
turned them into the street. The
horses of the Knox company could not
be reached, as they were on the second
story of the building. The Knox build-
ing was a four-storv structure of brick.
On the first floor were the heavy wag-
ons of the concern, on the second floor
the horses, on the third and fourth
floors hay in large quantities and mer-
chandise of all kinds which had been
stored with the company.
In the building adjoining the heat
was so intense that firemen were
obliged to throw water on each other
repeate Uv in or ! r t!uat the}- might
continue at their po-^ts Th • members
of hose company N . 1 and several men
f other eompanie > were caujht inside
of this building. A portion of th.' wall
of the Knox fell, blocking the exit.
Chief Paris and twenty firemen went to
the rescue. The walls of the Knox
building were tottering and just be-
fore they fell the rescuers appeared
carrying the bodies of three firemen.
