There was a tliuudering crash at
five minutes past eight o'clock this
morning, which was heard for a wide
radius from tho burned Opera
Houfo like tho lnnlllt'd roar of a
heavy rock blast. l'o Stores had
been placed against tho bare walls
of the building, and the gablo end
of tho struct ure, hbvjng only ouo
door and ono window to afford n
vent, gave an liMiieuso surfaco for
tho high wind that was blowing a
regular stiir trade breozp. Uesides,
tho gablo peak Mirmouuting tho
wall gnvo a great leverage to aid tho
pressure. Chief Etigim-er Hunt had
reported tho end wall to Lo cracked
after tho fire, yot no precaution was
Ukon bv the authorities to prevent
t So down went the wall. The bao
line of the fracture extended lateral
ly for nearly tho whole breadth of
tho building, being twelve or four
teen feet from tho ground and slop
ing up several feet from the corner
of tho door frame at one end of tho
wall and tho window frame near the
Beneath tho morning shadow of
the Opora Houpo standi Arion hall,
a oiio-story woodou structure with
au iron roof. Through tho end of
this ball tho falling wall crashed,
cutting oil about ton feet of it clean
and clear. Hoof, coiling aud floor
went down under tho terrible im
pact of brick. A lot of chairs, tables,
etc., woro involved iu tho wrock.
Tho coiling is shattered for some
distanco from tho inner lino of con
tact Double glass doors on the
rear side of tho hall were broken and
wrenched from thoir hinges appar
ently by tho force of the com
pressed air, for no brick lay
near thorn nor did they bear marks of
being struck by anything sharp or
solid. One tree iu tho way was
stripped of limbs and foliage as
baro as a tolophone pole, another
had just a row of limbs on ono side,
making it look like a dust brush,
while a stout palm was broken off
Mii-s Corney has boon holding a
privato school for some months in
Arion hall, her pupils boing young
children. Tho school denks are
placed at tho middle of tho hall,
yet, if school had been in when tho
accident happened, tho teacher aud
pupils would at least have suffered
soveroly from tho shock. What is
raoro dreadful to imagine, however,
is what would havo happened if tho
wall had fallen wheu tbo children
were assembling. They havo boon
in tho habit of playiug all ovor tho
ground about tho Gibson premises
and tho Opera House.
Goorgo Manson, who lodges in
Dr. McLon nan's houso, on the side
next tho Opora House, was probably
tho nearest porson to the sceno at
tho timo. He was between his bed
room ami bathroom, and know at
onco what tho resounding crash
meant, as ho noticed tho wall trem
bling yesterday afternoon. Mr.
Manson did not find the tolophone
working well, but managod to no
tify No. 1 firo station and tho police
station. A guard was placed at tho
front of tho Opera House, and ouo
on Mililanl strcot to keep peoplo
away from possible danger.
Police OHicer Green, who Jives iu
tho houso next to tho Arion hall, on
tho lot at Queen and Mililaui streets,
was startled from his breakfast by
tho uoieo. As lio reached thu hack
of his house ho was blinded with a
cloud of powdered mortar which
gave him sore oyos for one day.
All over town tho fall of the wall
was a leading topic in the forenoon,
and thuro wa much discussion as to
whore tho responsibility for tho acci
dent rested. Some said tho firemen
should hitvo pulled down the wall
when tho firo had boeu put out.
Other thought tho building catno
into the possession of tho insurance
companies until tho loss was adjust
ed. Still auothor opinion was that
tho Government wos responsible
ovor all parties, anil that it was the
I duty ot tho .Superintendent of I'ub
) lie Works to havo tho walls either
i pulled down or shored up.

building collupsed. One man was

It was regarded as highly fortunate
that tho disaster occurred beforo

otherwise the calamity would havo

Mr. Colburu reported an mlor-
view had with F. M. Hatch, Minister
of Foreign Affairs, by Messrs. i'arkor
and IIookiuK and himself. Tl un
discussed with tint goutlomau the
propriety and expediency of making
tho oath of fidelity to tho Constitu
tion a necessary qualification for
membership. Tho othor mombers
of committee woro in favor of exact
ing tho oath, on tho ground partly
that more consideration would bo
given petitions from tho League if
the siiruors woro sworn supporters of
tho llopublic. Mr. Colburu ou tho
other haud expressed the opinion to
, Mr. Hatch that tho ontu would
handicap the movement, as many of
tho natives felt sore against tho

after punishment was meted out to
their rebel countrymen. What tho
League wanted was annexation on a
certain bans or not at all, and it
would seek to enlist thouativc.-in hatt

toward tho present Government ot

Mr. Colburu as tounil. The Legis
