that the Instructions which ho hud re

to admit Greece ns a part:, t" the ne

thought, would rase the path of the
conference, but tho idea was soon dis
pelled by Iteohld Pasha's further an
nouncement that he had received sup
plementary Instructions in retard to
Adrianople. These were to the effeit
that In return for the Porte's willing
ness to ndtult Greece, Turkey asked for
'he rcvlctualllng of the besieged towns.
This demand grentl) surprised the
llulgarlans, who decided to hold n
private consultation among themselves

which he supported the demand of hl

grounds. The Hulgnrlan:. however, weie

supervision of engineers of the Public j
Service f'omtnUloii. who rrtide the re-1
port public yestordav. '
The fire house stood at the end of
l"2d Mrcf-t. where Lexington avenue i
comes up to the 'Harlem lllver. It Is,
known to the Fire Department as Knglne
House .No. ST. It I" used bv th firemen

The house, which Is two stories high, I
Is a steel ske!n:oil structure -tl feet'
long and 27 feet wide I; has a tower I
which goes up three stories higher, with
a flagpole on top The tower is used
as a pline to tlr hose In The lop of the
tower is C2 feet above the foundations!
and tho building weighs about 1.1U tons..
When the contractors-Arthur Mo-
Mullen and Ulaf HolT, who are building:

wu got ready to do the work they I
.lacked the tile hoie up iiIhiiii three

ha rise Carrie whs tied lo a pier near by'
and limber runways were laid to the,
tliehollse. Four more limbers weie
laid across the baige.
When the tide began to Use a hoist-
bus engine drew the tire house, toward j
the water It was Important to have j
the tide rising so that the weight of,
the house as It gradually passed upon i
the barge would not sink in the run- .
ways on the t'arrii so that they wouldn't ,
match with those on shore. The engl- :
neers llgured that they could pull the
flrehouse on the barge at the rate of '
three feet for each three Inch Use in
the tide. Their calculations came out
right, and the tlrehouse was em the ,
barRe In exnetly forty-live minutes.
Two lugs pulled the barge to the
