"We amrm our belief that the power
of taxation conferred by the people oX

Tho pattering rain drops last night

this morning the deluge that was pour

heads wero put out through the open

each and all of them gave utterance to
certain remarks that the weather was

nnd did the work of the camp In a
thoroughly perfunctory manner. Gloom
was so thick one could cut It with a
knife, so when breakfast was ready it
was a welcome relief and the men did
ample justice to the hot coffee and steak
which was served.
Genera! Ordway's foresight In pro
viding the plank and broken-stone
roads was highly commended. Men
did not have to inarch through the
mud to reach the fort, and every one of
them was thankful for that much relief
from the weather. The post canteen
was the rendezvous after breakfast, and
many of tbe men congregated there,
while others went to their tent and
busied themselves In writing letters,
caul-playing and conversation. Kvery
thing has a moist air about It, and
although the heavy rains were not suttl
cknt to soak through the canvas, still
it made the tents unpleasant, and the
damp ground and generally
of the encampment took away a great
deal of the romance of the soldier's
life. The older men, who had a siege
of this experience last year, did not
mind it half so much as the new re
cruits, and there was a general demand
for passes, which would allow tbe men
to come to the city. Whenever It could
be done, permission was readily given
and the men allowed to leave.
It did not rain to heavily this morn
ing, after break ft, and tbe boys are
hoping that before uigbt the storm will
have passed awsy entirely. The guards
suffered more than pnyoue else. They
were compelled to temaln in the rain
for two hours at a time, ami as none of
tbe royeterers were around to help them
white an ay tbe time it passed slowly.
The showers were heavy at times, and
many of the guardsmen were snaked
through when they came off duty. At
nearly all the guard headquarters the
men imitated the example of the battery
I oys, and built bonfires that helped to
dry and warm them, and were kept
going despite the rain.
The doctors anticipate that the
weal be r will largely increase

What few eases they have bad thus far

At 13:10 o'clock this rabrnlng the
Washington Fire Department had to re
spond to a general alarm for the first
time in several months. This alarm
came from box 157 and was promptly
responded to by Knglne Company Xa. 2,
and the others soon followed. The flro
was In the cxtenshe carriage manu
factory of William Walters' Son, on
tbo southeast corner of Fourteenth and
1) streets. From daylight until noon
to-dsy this four story block, which
IS COMVI.RTKLV Ol'TTSD,
was tutroundtd by a curious crowd re
gardhss of the rain. Tbe walls ap
parently remain Intact, but the re
mainder of the Lulldlng is complete
The sleepers on some of tbe floors re
main, which still hold tin skeletons of
once valuable carriages, of which there !
is little lelt but tbe iron work. Tbe
tlames hail gained considerable head
way before the first alarm was rung In,
and for a time it was thought that a
number of the adjacent buildings would
be desiroytd, but by hard work on the
part of the Are department tbe Ore was
cod r) Bed almost exclusively to tbe block
used by tbe firm as a manufactory, re
pair shop, and repository.
Adjacent to tbe building on Four
teenth street were a number of small
frame dwellings which, for a time, It
was thought were doomed. The occu
pants removed their furniture and ef
fects, and sustained more or leas loss by
water. Streams were kept upon the
ruins until 3 o'clock this morning, and

I hat tbe department has experienced
in a long while. No real explanation
can be given as to tbe origan of tbe fire,
but the supposition is that it was owing
to waste ami varnish, of which there
was a large (uanlty in tbe building.
Officer Sam Nelson was 'the first man
to give tbe alarm, ami be says that
the fire then bad a good start. On the
books at tbe First l'reclnct station Mr.

Lets of the KgyptAmeriea's
Gift to Gladstone.
Lomwiv, July VS. The turn taken
by the debate on the llellogoland-
Zanzibar agreement In the Mouse of
Commons has produced a genuine sen
sation In political circles. Mr. Glad
stone ami Sir William Harcourt made
it plain in last night's debate that the
action of the government In seeking to
ratify a cession of territory by act of Par
liament was a pure innovation. There
Is absolutely no precedent for it.
In America, whore legislative and
governmental polices are so largely ex
perimental, and where precedents are
created every day and disregarded every
day, the significance of the facts
pointed out by Mr. Gladstone and Sir
William Harcourt can hardly be appre
ciated. The Englishman has a high
respect for precedent and It must be
on very weighty grounds, Indeed,
that he will assent to any overturning of
established principles of government.
Hence Lord Salisbury's conservative
friends have a somewhat
lllSAOHKKAUI.K MOI.K TO TRRFOKV

In this case. The effect of the Intro
duction of the practice of submitting
such matters to Parliament would be
to rob the Crown of one of its most
ancient and Important privileges, and
would practically give the House of
Ixuds control ot the Foreign Olllco.
It Is the general feeling that the pres
ent tyattm whereby the approval or dli
apprnval of the government's foreign
policy can be made elTeciive thrnuth a
vote of want of confidence at any time.
Is a much safer system for the country

After paying a tribute to General
Sherman's patriotic servlres, Mr.
Gladstone concluded by saying that he
had become so accustomed to receiving
notes of kindness from America that his
vocabulary of gratitude was well-nigh
exhausted. He could only, therefore.
In the simplest language, thank the
Americans for this notable assurance of
