arriiue, New Ilo. belle, owned by Almh Hlgglns
and uccuplod lit J. Watton, a carpet weaver, as
a shop and residence, was discovered to bo on
fire about S o'clock jtatercday morning. Mr.
Watson and his family escaped without saving
an)thtng, and the alarm was quickly given. Tho
entire Fire Department of tho village, consist
ing of one hand engine, ono honk and ladder
truck, and a chemical engine, or large Are extin
guisher on wheels, wero quickly put to work by
(Tib f llcvere. Tbo Are was burning fiercely In
the midst or a bunch nf seven frstnn buildings.
On tbe east was the tro.vl, tree-covered lawn nf
the Lo Hoy House, running from Main atreot
back to the hotel, 2i0 feel southeast of tho
threatened block. Across Centre arrnuo there
were no buildings In danger, but even tho width
of Main street did not Insure the safety of thn
business buildings and an aristocratic club
house opposlto tho fire. After the attempt to
extinguish tho Ore had failed for lack of water
tbo Ore dtiparlmeiit went to work to prevent
thu spread of tho Uro beyond the block In which
It started. In this they were successful,
although It was a narrow escape. The damns
spread to tha Centre avenue wlnu of Gen, Fer
guson A- Co.'a three-story building, which also
had a front on Main street. This store lately
added tn and Improved was filled with a large
slock of fancy and staple groceries, crockery,
feed, ic, Enclosed by the two tslngs of the
Ferguson bullilng was Mrs. C. Hirne's shoe
store. This was next burned. Some nf tho
stock was saved In a damaged condition. T. W.
Murrat's liquor store In Centrs avenue was next
In Main street, E. O. Clsrk's dry goods store
caught from the Fereuson building, nnd from
that the 1 v office of Charles If. Hoosevelt. the
."eereturv of the Itapld Transit Association.
The building owned and occupied by Justice
WIHUui K Huiupliret as a drug store and a
dollar store was next In the line nf fire. Iloforo
It was well afire the next row of bull, lings sepa
rated froui It by tho failloy House Lawn waa
seen to be In danger. Knowing It to be Impos
sible to save Humphrey's building, Chief Itevero
urderod It blown up. Two or three kegs of pow
der accomplished thlt and the spreading of the
Uro was over. Water wat poured on the ruins
until da) light, and last evening, the fire com
pany was nguln called out tu play upon the al
most blazing pile.
Tbe upper ttorles of three nf the seven build
ings were occupied hytho families of the keep
ers nf tho storos below. Of domestic effects,
hut little was saved. Tbe aggregate loss It
estimated at t'J(tU. The Insurance cannot he
given until the safes nre taken from the ruins,
though It Is known to ho small. 1 ho origin of
the lire Is unaccountable, and there are there
fore suspicions of Incendiarism. Watson, the
weaver, says that the tiro did not originate In

the fact that an unusually large numberof State
prison convlotv have recentlr been reloased,
causes the Urooklyn police, officials to anticipate
a very disturbed fall and winter In their city,
and they say that unless tho Alderman provide)
for the Increase of the patrol force the Increase
of crime will be unparalleled, Thera are only
MO patrolmen lu Urooklyn, giving one guardian
tn about every 1.000 parsons. In New York
there Is a policeman to every ICO. There am
some posts in Urooklyn, to which one man la de
tailed, that aro larger, or as large, aa some of the
New York precincts. Its Urooklyn, also, there Is
no provision fur reforming tbe young rowdies
who throng the city In very largo number.
There It not employment for more than one
half of tbe young men. and tholr loafing degene
rates Intn some form of crime. This uddltlon to
the criminal population Is also reckoned on In
the estimate that Is tnado fur the next season.
Commissioner llrlggs, the President of the
Police Hoard, ha asked the Common Council
for power to appoint SI) more patrolmen. There
ha been such a reckless uso of money, nnd the
city debt has been Increased ao much, that tbe
Aldermen are timid about voting an extra
JiD.000 annually, which this must require.
Many strouls lu Uruuklyn are not entered by
pollcomen for days at a time, because tho post
are too large. The thieves team what street
aro not frequented by policemen. Wheu tbe
Common Council meets ngaln an effort is to be
made to have something dona for tho better
prutectlon of life and property.

The New Fncl Concerning the Killing of
C'npi, I.ewU A Lawrence.
The Into (.'apt. Lewis A. Lawrence, who
wat murdered lu his schooner, the Joseph E.
Potti, while lying off City Island on Friday oven
Ing, was burled from his late resldenco, East
Hill, near Port Jefferson Tillage, ytstcrday after
noon. Copt. Lawrence was with J. J. Harris, ship
builder, owner of the schooner nf which he wa
tha commander. He had lived at Port Jeffer
son for the past twenty years, and he wits uni
versally respected. He leaves a wlfo, throe
daughters, and two sons. His wife, who for
sometime paat ha been In feeble health, was
ao ahnckod when she heard tbe new of her hus
band's terrible death that but little hopes aro
entertained of her recovery,
'1 he schooner which he commandod waa taken
to Port Jefferson yesterday morning, and now
Mow In that harbor. Cspt. Lawrence waa of email
Mature, ot unlylWpouudswclght, and had been
suffering from lllnes during the winter and
spring, and this In n measure doubtless accuunt
for nls iieliiu aooasily ovorcomu by his murderer.
It Is believed lUi't $'J) Is about all the money be
had ttlth lilm. It is the general opinion that tho
tnurdrror did notjntend to kill, hut only tu gag
and rob Urn. The wound on Ids head, It Is now
thought, was In consequence of falling against
something In tlio cabin. A reward will bo Im
mediately offered for tho murderer's apprehen
sion. 'Iho authorities had found no trace of

tho work went on, and every alight riln

moreover, of Intuffllont oapacl'y. The people
began to complain, but thoy were told that
thn sewers were unfinished, and If they would
