SCORES OF PEOPLE INJURED
By Bricks Which Were Sent Flying by
ARTILLERY IS USED TO KNOCK
The Lowest Estimate Names a Million
Dollars as the Aggregate Losses
Already at Work
Associated Press Special Wire.
KNOXVILLE, Term., April B.—Never
in the history of Knoxville has the city
Buffered such a loss by Are as It did to
day, following the breaking out of flames
at an early hour thla morning in a gro
cery store adjoining the big Knox hotel.
The hotel and adjoining buildings were
soon in flames, and the very heart of the
city, Including some of the largest
wholesale and retail houses In the south,
was destroyed. The loss was variously
estimated at from one to one and a half
million dollars, with about 60 per cent of
Insurance. The loss of life is very un
certain, as the register of the hotel, in
which fifty-six people were sleeping, was
burned. The proprietor of the hotel said
he had five or six guests who have not
put In an appearance. A. E. Weeks of
Locke, N. V., drummer for a Rochester
stamping company. Is known to have
perished in the flames. R. W. Hopkins,
a St Louis drummer, was last seen In
the burning building In a suffocating con
dition. W. H. Keppart, ex-secretary of
the chamber of commerce, saved the life
of John Bodle, an old farmer, by drag
ging him to a window and letting him
out on the roof of another building.
Keppart Jumped one story and was in
jured. When the firemen thought all the
Inmates of the hotel had escaped, a wo
man with an infant In her arms rushed
to the rear windows and screamed for
help. A net was quickly stretched and
the woman was asked to drop the child
out, but as the smoke almost choked her,
she told them that if somo one had to
die, both would die. The woman was
finally rescued by a fireman.
From the hotel building, which Is five
stories, the fire spread rapidly, a stiff
breeze making the flames very ugly, and
the Are department was Inadequate.
In the wholesale hardware house of
W. W. Woodruff & Co. a dynamite ex
plosion occurred and scores of people
were hurt by flying brick and glass. It
became necessary at last to have the
walls of one building blown down by
cannon to stop the fire. A mountain
howitzer of the Knoxville legion was
called into requisition and a load of can
ister did the work, at the same time tear
ing up some residences in a different por
tion of the city.
The city authorities, realizing that the
fire department was unable to conquer
tho flames, telegraphed to Chattanooga
for assistance. An engine was placed
aboard a flat car and started on the
run of 111 miles, which was made by
Engineer in 109 minutes, breaking the
record. When the engine arrived here
the fire was about under control, yet the
Chattanooga boys did some good work.
A cablnstmaker named P. G. Dyer fell
dead on the street from flight. A man
named Robinson, from Pulaski, Term., Is
supposed to be another victim. He was
registered in the hotel and has not

five or six persons were burned. He
ran over three or four men in the hall

AN ODIOUS POLICY

of leading free Italy to commit Incon

WASHINGTON, April B—The senatu
today heard Morgan for the third suc
cessive time today on his resolution de
claring that a state of war exists In Cu
ba. He was severely critical of Spain*
methods against American prisoner
went over in detail the circumstances
In the Competitor case. Mr. Mo.
said he would close his speech at die
next meeting of the senate, when ho
would present, a letter from one of the
Cuban officials of the eastern pro . nice
of the Island, showing the complete civil
system of government now maintained
by the Cubans.
Nelson of Minnesota spoke for I •
hours on the bankruptcy bill, opp
the pending Torrey bill as Ijr
harsh and designed as a collection ar
for large creditors and urging his sub
stitute as a measure drafted In the In
terests of thousands of poor debtors
struggling to get on their feet.
Mr. Chandler offered a resolution,
which was agreed to, as follows:
Resolved, That the committee t
terstate commerce be directed to In
vestigate the payments made by or
agreed to be made by the Interstate
commerce commission for attorney's
fees; and also to Inquire whether In uny
cases the attorneys of the commi ", in
have been also employed by railway
companies in similar cases, and further,
whether any additional authority from
congress is required for the emplovnient
of counsel in any pending proceedings
which have been instituted by r on
motion of the commission.
The resolution of Earle (S. C, Dem )
for the resorgantzation of the sen -»c

In resuming his speech on the r< -olu
tlon declaring that a state of wai ex
ists In Cuba, Morgan reverted to the
statement of Hale yesterday that the
number of American prisoners in Span
ish prisons was reduced to tweh •
sarcastics tones, Mr. Morgan sal 1
such releases as had occurred W<
result of supplication by our go- fo
ment and perhaps it would h* v,
priate to adopt a vote of thai.Us to
Spain for not slaying these prlt - ira
outright. Asfde from the official ,*sti
mony as to the condition in Cubi. the
newspaper press had piled up tuns
of testimony which established b I
question that the war was being pros
ecuted by Spain contrary to all the
i ales of civilized warfare.
Morgan commented on a letter w Uten
by Minister Dupuy de Lome to Mis*
Clara Barton, relative to Red Cross
work in Cuba. In the course of tli? t
ter use is made of the expression "dur
ing the present war."
This, declared Morgan, was an inad
vertent admission by the Spanish
ister, despite all his diplomatic
ning, that war was going on. Ar. >
congress and the president woul I '
recognize that as such a stateme: t of
war which would assure to Amo:
prisoners the treatment of prisoners of
war and not of insurrectionists.

Morgan spoke of the Competitor ex- ;|
pedltion, and took up the case of young ,
Owen Melton, one of the Competitor
prisoners, and followed the progress of
his trial and his imprisonment incom
municado In the Spanish dung. BB
Young Melton, said he. was held today
In a loathsome dungeon, not because
guilt had been established, but be. I i
he is a young American boy. He «aT
held In a miserable place in wku h at
times forty other prisoners were cr «rd
cd. Three pails of water were br< light
to them daily to quench their ihtraj
from rations of dry codfish. Morgan
then reviewed the case of Rev. Dr. I Mas
While preaching at Havana bombshells
had been thrown Into his church, i 1
and hip brother were arrested a:.' held
for seventeen days incommunlc .-
Morgan read from the laws and treat
ies to show the unjustifiable character
of Melton's imprisonment.
Then the senator exclaimed, wi:':
vehemence: "Whether there »■
prisoners in Cuba or 74,000, or i
it Is one, in the person of Owen !
