St they were on the sidewalk the engines were
f dashing up from all directions.
Already the building was in flames, which
ft v i came from every window on the Broadway and

', W Intense that the firemen had difficulty In getting
'' close enough to the building to play their
iL ' streams upon It. When Chief Bonner arriTed

and then a fourth alarm was sent in, which
fr P brought tho wholo Are apparatus ot the depart-
k j ment In the lower part of tho city.
- In the basement and cellars under the res-
' ", taurant a large stock of wines was stored. Tho
, flames reached the casks within a few minutes,
y ' and there was explosion following upon explo-
, ' elon In quick succession. The" Are. thus fed, in.
' . creased in intensity until the entlro building
was a blazing furnace. Then the floors gave
. way, crashing through to the basement and
J ' sending op showers of sparks higher thsn the
w ' t tops of the highest buildings around.
ri , Shortly after 8 o'clock the Leonard street wall,
, Its bricks red hot from the fierce Are within,
r ' toppled and -fell Into the street with a crash that
could be heard blocks away. The sidewalk was
) V ' crushed In by the Impact, and the long gaji, run.
i nlng along the whole Leonard street side, was
' ' filled with the bricks and burning wreckage.
The heat was now so great that the firemen
'. were obliged to wet one another with the hose
' " constantly. The big soven-stury building on the
southwest corner, newly painted, liegan to
, i scorch, and its plate-glass windows cracked and
I !' fell Into the street. The firemen played on this
; ; building and on J affray's, opposite nn Broad-

! The building on the northwest corner of
I Broadway and Leonard street win one of the
K oldest in the dry goods district. It was owned
k by theestateuf James I'. Aler, and was for.
merly known as Ayt-r's Hotel. The restaurant of
,i , Holts & Krerstedt was very well known down
i. town. The Ann were large Importers of itlilne
I and Moselle wines, and it is said that their stock
a1 was the rarest In the city. They had a ladles'
' mk reetaurant on the second floor In addition to the
f V cafe on the ground floor, and were largely
f r patronized by the merchants of the district. Of
kM. the other occupants of the Ayer building,
" I Nathan B. Kaplan was a dealer in auction
j f goods, and A, itegensberg a manufacturer of
' ' cigars.
One of the attractions of Wildey's rafu was
i his collection of One pictures. "La Jujtlce du
c bherif," by Benjamin Constant, was a lurge
painting In which there were a dozen Ufe-alze
1 figures. It was valued at S33.Q00. Other) were;
" Returning from the Market." by Josef Chel-
' monskl. valued at $10,000: "After the Bath."
by M, hi. KeUogg; "Courtship In the Barnyard."
I bv John F, Herring, and "The rimokcr," by
I AVUUam M. Chase. The last three were from
t the collection of the late A. T, titewart. There
I were also two large Ulieatries, "The Chase"
, and "The Minuet,'' by Urennle. Many of the
pictures were saved and others were damaged
t only by water. The loss on them, however, will
' be fully 184.000. Mr. Wlldey's loss ou stock,
futures, and decorations he cannot estimate,
i but It U probable that J10.000 will coer It, He
had about tdO.000 Insurance.

' Broadway, says that bis cash box was broken
' open during the Are and that he lost t -JJU.ua.
It was his custom to put the box in Wilde) 's
safe In the Manhattan riafo Deposit, for which
accommodation he paid Wildey. Yesterday
morning John Rogers, manager for Wildey,
went to the safe as usual and took out Wlldey's
box and also Cole's,snd carried them to the cafe.

A considerable number of French citizens met
t 8 P. M. yesterday In the Metropolitan Hall,
64 South Washington square, to hear an address
from the Hon. Frederic It. Coudert in support
of the Democratlo ticket. The audience was
composed chiefly of members of the La Fayette
Club, a FrancoAmerlcan Democratic organisa
tion. The hall was decorated with the Btars and
Stripes and the French tricolor.
At 8:20 the President of the .club. Prof. A
George, made a brief Introductory speech, point
Ing out the critical position of the Democratlo
party, and the hostility of the Republicans
toward aliens. "It Is a question of yonr re
ligion and your political rights," he said' "The
A. P. A. wontd deprlveof their rights those who
profess another faith."
Mr. Coudert made a vigorous speech. "Though
I was born In America," he said, " I will never
forget the French blood .that) flows In my veins.
Any of my hearers who forgets that he Is French
as well as American and American as well
as French had better leave this hall. There
are two parties In tho State. You are
Democrats, and If the Americans know why
they are Demoomts, so do the French. It was
the French Revolution that gave birth to de
mocracy. The .Democratlo party was founded
heTe by Jeflersdn. who was a cordial admirer ot
France, not for1 her arts and elegances or her
cooks, no mean consideration, but for the glori
ous principles of liberty which she was
the first to enunciate. Ills rival. Hamil

Mr. Coudert spoke of the proposed apportion,
ment, which he designated as a barefaced rob

"It Is not majority that would rule, but arith.

After a vote of thanks had been accorded Mr.
Coudert. Mr. J. J. Walsh epoko briefly in Eng
lish. In answer to it question asked from the
hall concerning tho attitude nf the Democrats
toward tho A. 1. A., Mr. Coudert replied that
Democracy understood neither clericals nor un
clericals, but maintained liberty of conscience

Hudson and Leroy streets on Friday night, In
his necktie he wore a diamond pin, which

Twyman thought little of the remark, and
about midnight started down Greenwich street

was near Canal street when a stranger met and
accosted him. He said he was a printer, and
after asking some questions regarding alleged
acquaintances In the same business, he re
marked: " You've got some mud on your necktie."
"That's ail right." replied Twyman.
Then the man pushed him against a door
which was half opened from the Inside by a
woman and grabbed at the pin. Twyman struck
out and then he was seized from behind by a
man who choked him. The next thing Twyman
knew waa when two hours later a policeman
found him bleeding and unconscious in the gut

everything of value about his person except his

the taking of testimony In the habeas corpus

Police Captain Max F. Bchmlttberger of the
Nineteenth, or " Tenderloin " precinct, who was
Indicted for bribery by the Grand Jury on Fri
day, was arrested yesterday morning. Ills for
mer ward man, Gannon, Is In Ireland, where he
has berti for four or Ave months.
Capt. Schmlttbcrgerwentto Police Headquar
ters and gate himself up, by agreement, Just as
ex-Capt, Dohcrty did a week before. Detective
Sergeant Rellly took charge of him, and they
went to the District Attorney's office shortly
after 11 o'clock, The Captain was taken before
Judge Cowing In Part 1., General Sessions, He
was accompanied by his counsel, William F.
Howe, of Howe A Hummel.
"I desire to say a few words about Capt.
Bchmlttberger," said Mr. Howe to Judge Cow
ing. "He Is a man whose efficiency and bravery
are well known "
" Never mind that now," Interrupted Judge
Cowing. "I will simply fix the bait. I will
Mr. Howe said that was satisfactory, and at
tempted to enter Into a discussion of the Indict
ment, but Judge Cowing again choked him off.
Thomas Smith, a contractor of 350 West Fif-ty-first
street, qualified as bondsman, and
Schmlttberger was set freo.
The Indictment sgalnst Capt. Schmlttberger
Is bated chiefly upon the testimony of Agent
Forget of the Compagnle Generate Transatlan
tlque, who testified before the Lexow committee
that ho paid the Captain ffiOO for extra police
service on the docks, when Capt. Schmlttberger
had command uf the steamboat squad. The
other witnesses called were Charles O. West,
'superintendent nf the compan's docks: Vernon
II. Brown, agent for the Cunard line. Superin
tendent Byrnes, and Policemen I)e Gann, O'N'ell,
and Interman, who nero at various times sta
tioned on tho docks of the French line.
Theroare two counts In the Indictment. The
first Is for bribery. It charges that Capt.
Schmlttberger did, nn Dec. 31, 1801, ask, re
ceive and agree to receive, a bribe of S300. nn
the understanding that his public ruts should be
Influenced by the payment, and that at and
about the pier of the French lino he would en
force ami prevent the violation of all laws and
ordinances then In force " more fully and faith
fully than he otherwise would do and was in
duty bound to do." In the second count the cir
cumstances nro reiterated, and ho Is charged
with tho felony of having taken an "emolu
ment, gratuity, and reward." and In considera
tion nf It, enforcing tho laws more fully than be
otherwise would have done. These charges are
based u;ion sections 48 and 72 of the Penal Code,
respectively. They are the same sections under
which ex-Cnpt.Doliertynnd his cx-bergeanis and
ex-ward men were Indicted. The Indictment
against Ward Man Gannon could not be seen, as
the arrest has not been made, but It Is under
stood to be similar In Import.
Mr. Howe, speaking uf tho Indictment yester
day. Fa Id:
'The case will lie fought to the end. In my
opinion the indictment ( not worth the paper It
Is written on. Section 4H was Intended for male,
factors In the Sheriff's office and will not apply
to a tmllccman. Section 78 speaks of a person
emplo) ed by or acting for tho State or any pub
lic offlter In tho business of the State.' Capt.
Schmlttberger Is nut a State officer, so that will
tint nnnlv. author "
The question now arises as to whether Capt.
Schmlttberger 111 continue to serve as a police
Captain while he Is under Indictment and out
on bail. Assistant District Attorney Battle said
yesterday that he knew of nothing to prevent
It, unless some action were taken by the Police
Commissioners. President Martin of the Hoard
was asked estenlay If any action would be
taken. Tho Board, ho said, had not been offi
cially notified of Schmlttberger's Indictment
and arrest, and under the circumstances he did
not care to say what action the Board would
" We Dossed a resolution some time ago." he
added, "directing the Superintendent to Inves
tigate the accusations made against the Captain
by the agent nf tlie French Hue. and to urcpare
charges, provided It did not Interfere with tho
work of the Lexow committee. No charges havo
yet been presented, anil wo have received no re
port concerning the matter from either the Su
perintendent nr Assistant District Attorney
Wellman. Whether or not. In view of tho In
dictment, the Captain will be suspended, I can
not say. The matter will como up at the meet
ing of the Board on Monday or Tuesday next.
The Superintendent also has power to suspend
the Captain, subject to the approval of tho
Mr. Martin said It was unlikely that Capt.
Scbmlttberger would be tried before tho Com
missioners whllo he was under Indictment.
District Attorney Fellows said jesterday af
ternoon that he was not prepared to state when
the cases of the Indicted police officials would
proliably come to trial. He has thelllrgal regis
tration rases more on his mind at present.
Capt. Schmlttberger. when seen at the West
Thirtieth street station last night, said:
" 1 will say that any charges made against me
are entirely false, and I am glad to hao the op
portunity of proving them to be so. Just say
thnt I court Investigation."
Superintendent Ilyrnes's name Is endorsed on
the indictment against Capt. Schmlttberger as
ono of the witnesses before the Grand Jury.
This occasioned much talk yesterday in inter
ested circles. Tho explanation Is, as given by a
man who knows, that the Superintendent only
appeared before the Grand Jury In the case to
Identify the office and assignment held by Capt.
Schmlttberger at the time of the acts charged
in the Indictment.

The Excise Boanl announced yesterday the
result of the Investigation Into the bribery
charges against Inspector Matthew Murphy.
About Ave weeks ago Jabob Hafrn. a saloon
keeper at 1,613 East End avenue, testified before
the Lexow committee that he had paid various
sums of money to Inspector Murphy to procure
additional considerations from tho Excise
Board. The Excise Hoard a few days ago sum
moned Murphy before them. He denied the
charges. Then they confronted him with
llafin, who at once denied that Murphy was the
man he meant. He believed some one had Im

made the bet on Morton had nn offer of $100

was importuned to follow Quay's example four
years before. " No. that Jig is up," said the Hon.
Tom Carter of Molilalia, " and, besides, we need

The National Republican Committee Is still In
debt $100,000. Many laymen do not quite un
derstand how a national committee of either
party is trusted for such amounts. This Is easily

for the last Afteen years.

leading anti-snapper and a candidate for United

creasing strength of tho Democratic State
ticket, "which now places victory within easy
reach." He added:
"The endorsement of the national Adminis

and the defeat nf thn constitutional amend
ments particularly demand from Democrats
support of the State ticket. This is because
division upon one issue would mean division
and defeat upon every issue. Democratic unity
is the only pathway tn Democratic success In

contentions and to stand together."

The towns of Flatbush, New Utrecht, and
Oravesend were not annexed to the city until
this year, but as they now compose the
Twenty-ninth. Thirtieth, and Thirty-first
wards respectively, their registration for
tho three preceding years is ghen
In the comparative tables. Tho Agures In the
Oravesend territory this year compared with
thoso when John Y. McKane was still tho politi
cal autocrat of the town will afford an object
lesson as to the fraudulent proportions of tho
Grnvesend vote In previous years.
Tho total registration this year In Mc Kane's
old dominion Is only 2,030. which Is 4,000 less
than the registered vote a year ago and
1,000 less than the actual vote cast. In
Flatbush and New Utrecht tho shrinkage
In the registration compared with prelous
years Is also significant. It seems clear, from a
consideration of the previous frauds In Graves
end and the other towns, that this year's regis
tration Is, on a fair basis, considerably in excess
of all preceding ones.

It was half pas'. 8 when Michael C. O'Connor

John O. Milburn of Buffalo. Mr. Milburn Is no
friend of Senator Hill and I.leut.-Gov. Sheehan,
nnd he said things not complimentary to either
the Senator or tho presiding officer of the
Statd Senate. This pleased the rink audi

some one tn the front row hissed. The hlsser. a

Chaales J. Patterson conAned himself to local

from casting ft vote for I,evt P, Morton.
A liberal round of applause was accorded to
the great Republican political worker when hs

Most of tfie scats had been lilted before then,
and by tho time Mr. Choate began talking men
were standing up lb the rear aisles. Edmund
Wetmore. President of the Republican club un
der whose auspices the meeting was held, wag
named as Chairman.
Mr. Wetmore said In his opening speech, after
Informing his audience that they were gathered
to do battle for good government and honesty
against usurpation and crime, and after com
paring Senator Hill to Satan In " Paradise Losf'i
" We strive for a government of voters and not

Three cheers for Mr. Choate followed, and the
ovation continued for nearly two minutes, Mr.
Choate waiting with a smile. His Arst sentence
was aimed at the time wasted, for he said:
"1 think you might spend your time
better than that. You need not be afraid
of tho document which I hold In my
hand. It Is only a copy of the revised Constitu
tion, under w filch we hope tn llvo for twenty
years to Lome. I am no stranger to
this platform. I stood hero twenty-three
years ago, when the original Commit
tee of Seventy fought Tammany and beat
It. but did not destroy it. Tlieru aio only a few
left of that body ot men: hut the spirit that
animated them Is nrescnt here, and we have tho
samo battle to fight. Soinethlnk thnt the crimes
of the Tweed Rlngwere greater than those 01 to
day. I don't believe It. The money that was stolen
then could be counted. 1 hat honorable and as
tute public servant, Samuel J. Tildcn applause,
nailed It down to the lost dollar and cent. But
who can count the aggregate of tho robberies
under Tammany since that day ? Not even Dr.
Parkhurst can tell Ik So much from each pea- ,
nnt vender, so much fur each awning over tho
street, so much for each obstruction of tho tdde-
each steamship company, $1,000 from each i
house nf ill fame theso are tho things , i
that makeup a total beside which Tweed's $12,- b
000.000 sinks Into Insignificance. And only one
department has thus far been investigated, and
only tho small fry of that department has been
put over the griddle. Who doubts that ono jab .-,
from Goff's piercing latice into the other de- is
partments would disclose the same spoliation il
and corruption 1 .
" What is this Tammany HalL any way Is jl
there anything Democratic about It in the real V
sense of tho word V Is there anything Rrpubli- if
can? Is there tiny reputable Democrat in tho, ir.
city who shares Its influence and power r
Why, nol A little gang of bandits has .,
fastened1!.. report-, tin--1 vitals of tho city- r
In their organisation . ono 'man. holds ,
the power and every applicant for a petition '
must humbly sue to him, hat tn one Iiand and
check In the other. Even the poor man who do- ,
sires to become one af that army or decayed
veterans who pretend to sweep our streets must
buy his place from this central power. Why
have we stood It so long t Let us go to the poll
on Nov. 0 and down this mystery.
"A word as to Stato politics. There too la
tho same line to be drawn between treachery
and trickery and fraud and debauchery aa
exemplified by David D. Hill, and honest
Sovernment as exemplified by Levi P.
lorton. Wo will never forget that rob
ber of Dutchess county until the maater
schemer of tho plot Incomes aa much of a back
number as Maynard now Is. All the honest
Democrats aro against him. How well Is this
opposition represented by Grover Cleveland and
Carter nnd I'eckham and riornblowert They
forget only one thing, that the best way to beat
Hill is to vote for Morton. All of them should
be registered with the object of a good Repub
lican vote In view. There, are, however, two
other honorable Democrat who have let them
selves to be lured over to the wrong side. Cou
dert, whom we all admire, respect, and love, is
one of them. He says that Hill represents all
that the honest people have been strug-
CllniT for. Slid that. MfuMnM tn. mnilnil.
ing municipal affairs without partisan
politics Is all bosh. He can presume
upon his popularity to say these things once,
but I wouldnH advise him to repeat them. The
other Is Ellery Anderson, one of the best of
men. He says that the disclosures befora
the Lexow committee applause are ouly
tho Inevitable and ordinary infirmities cf
human nature, and thnt we shall ham
nothing better befora (the millennium. When
that does come and all the rest of ns are
gathered up. he'll be asleep, as he Is now, and
will be left behind, I'm afraid. Laughter.)
But there Is another question before the people
than tho election of any man or party, and that
Is the question as to the form of government
under which wo are to live for the next twenty
or thirty or forty or flfty years."
Mr. Choate went on to deny that the action of.
the Constitutional Convention was anything butcx
honest, equitable, and unpartlsan. He reviewed
the various proporrd amendments. In which heTv
claimed that all honest men of both parties .
should concur; the reforms In the Judiciary sys
tem; tho amriidmeut separating the mu-
nlclltal elertlnn io ivtlnt nf ilm- fmm !&
State and national elections; the amendment
designed to prevent the rushing nf bills through
the Legislature without adequate time for con
sidering them; the amendment providing that
no person should vote unless he had been a dil
yen for ninety days previous to election dayj
the cnaritles amendment, and the non.sectarlan
amendment, in regard to this latter Mr. Cboat
"Because I votrd for it I was called an A . P, A.'
and because I voted for thecharities amendment
I was said to have changed my religion and to
be about to put myself Into the hands of his
Holiness the Pope. Laughter. There's a
combination for you. Mr. Hill adlses all
Democrats to vote against these and other good
amendments because he doesn't like the Appor
"Mr. Hill has been doing noble service In sup
port of this apportionment. He has been It'll.
Ing everybody that its passage would nip Dem

Democratic success that means Hill and Tarn. '
many Is Just, the kind that ought toll

law was Gov. Hill's own work, put through by
a strict party vote after he hail got control of (hs
Legislature by that stolen ote in Dutchess
county. Under that apportionment St. Law- ,
rtnee county with it rJH.uoo votes only TA
had one representative, while little Putnam had '

n his district and Senator saxton the same,
while the Democratic district in New York rep

the speaker then went Into statistics of the
proposed apportionment, claiming that It
was a wrung policy that ga to any
