Baltimore, Feb. 9. The Governor, the
.Mayor and various municipal officials
i held a conference today at which it
was decided that Baltimore for the
present needs no outside help. At this
H' ! conference also was developed tho ma-
H. f ! chinery for an advisory legislative com
, 'mittce, to act In conjunction with .the
J ! Legislature.
' i The stock exchange chambers met
j t and decided to rebuild as soon as pos-
( j?ible. The same story can be told of
practically every commercial body,
, while on every hand is evidence of prl
vate effort toward rehabilitation. Old

Hl ; I llcally all of the vaults and strong

Hw J I cerns whose buildings wore destroyed

HH J From one trust company's safe alone
HH I , papers to the amount of more than

HH 'j'thctf. two financial concerns, whose

HH , ( 1 names, were practically unharmed.
HH j' j ' Thes were the Mercantile Trust cora-

- ' ORIGIN OB1 FIRE A MYSTERY.
! i Today gave opportunity for a careful
J1 Investigation as to the origin of tho tire
BH in the Hurst building. It was first re
BBBJ ' ported that the b1ae started from the
BBBJ explosion of a gasoline engine in the
BBBJ , cellar, but this tonight is given an cm
BBBJ phatlc denial.
BBJH i Henrj S. Hurst of the firm of John
BBH i J ID, Hurst fc Co. says there was no gas
BBBU , ollne in the building, and that the fire
BBBM did not have its origin In an explosion
BBBJ of this liquid in the Hurst building.
BBBft This statement was subsequently cor-
BBBF 1 i 1 i roborated by a signed statement Issued
BBBj i, i by S. W, Hopper & Sons, lnsrarahco
BBV ' I i agents arid brokers, who said that after
BBK t , j careful Inspections by deputies pf their
BBBJ i, firm and of the Fire Underwriters' as
BBBj ' ' : sociatlon that they were satisfied that
BBH H ( there was nG gasoline In the building.
BBBJ ' Mr. Hurst said that he and Charles
BBBJ ' j George, a trusted employee, were the
BBH I last persons to leave the building at
BBBJI ( 5:30 p. m. Saturday, and that all the
BBH ; i electric ligllts were turned off by a
BBBJL , . switch. It is not denied that the lire
originated in the Hurst building, but
BBBfl ii ( i how It started is yet to be learned.
BBBK 1 " Outside the fire area this afternoon
BBBB i and tonight the streets were filled with
BBBB1- tramping thousands. Multitudes of
BBBB i . i people, residents as well as the out-of-BBBK

H j!J One of the most remarkable freaks of

The woman crew tired, and in order to

CITY AND COUNTY BUILDING
COMMITTEE ORGANIZES AND
MAKES AN INSPECTION.
A meeting of tho Joint committee on con
trol of the city and county building was
held yesterday and matters In general re
lating to the case of the Joint stnrcturo
wero discussed. This Is the fi.st meeting
to be hold by this committee since the as
sumption of office of the new city offi
cials, nnd the election or a chnlrmnn was
tho first thing taken up. The committee
Is composed of the three members of the
Board of County Commissioners, the
Mayor and two Councllmen. Mayor Mor
ris was chosen chairman of the committee
Thb matter of better fire protection for
tho city and county building wns consid
ered at lensth and a committee consisting
of Commissioner Standlsh and Councilman
Dean was appointed to make n thorough
Investigation of condition. It Is under
stood that a stream of water cannot be
raised high enough to be of any valuo In
case of a firo If the tower, and the large
attics of the building, which are unfin
ished and Uttered with Inflammable ma
terial, are considered veritable fire-traps.
The Joint committee discussed the propo
sition of pnvlnjr the sidewalk on tho west
aide of the building nnd of the walk lead
ing to the northwt-6t corner, but no defi
nite action wns taken They also dis
cussed the pestilential condition of the
trfes on the city side of the ground and
something will likely be done about de
stroying tho nests in the near future
There is a class of young hoodlums that
Infest the Joint building at all times nnd
swarm from basement to rrarret The
committee sees no reason for this and
passed a resolution providing that tho
gamins bo kept out of the building except
during business hours, and that any and
all nets of destruction or defacement bo
Another matter upon which It Is Ukoly
tho committee will take fome action In
the near future Is the placing of the whole
building under ono head custodian and
Janitor. At present both the city and tho
county havo their own janitors and each
looks after one-half of the building. It Is
believed that the service would bo much
better If the entire force of janitors were
under one head.

DEMOCRATS CAME TO PREECE.

-he hnd not voted with the Democrats at
the Council meeting Monday night, but
that they had ot?d with him. He laughed
at the idea of their being an understand
ing between himself and the Democratic
members and said they had not known
beforehand that he was going to ask that
tho appointments bo referred to a special
ccmmltteo. He wfs asked several ques
tions. Co which he answered as follows:
"Was thero not an understanding In re
gard to the appointment of that special
committee to .which the appointments of
Maor Morris were referred?"
"No. sir. thero was noL"
"What was tho object In taking tho apA
polntmcnts away from the regular com
mittees to glvo them to till special com
m)t.eo?" "I didn't want them pigeon-holed. I
want to havo the thing settled."
"Do you, as a Republican, think It right
to reward party perfidy by turning out
loyal Republicans to put In olflco pro
fessed. Republicans who voted the Demo
cratic ticket In the recent election?"
"No. and I don't think there was any
of those sent In but what arc good Re
publicans. The position of Humane Offi
cer was created In the revised ordinances
and tho office Is therefore a new one."
"Does the deal entered Into with tho

"There was no deal entered Into. I'll

"It all depends on what the Republicans
want. If an understanding Is arrived at
