At 1 :30 the cry of "Fire" rang out from
Williams' itrocery store and in a few mo

The building was a two-story brick tene

upper one being occupied by Mr. Williams'

such rapidity did the Are spread that these

belonged to Mr. David Davis.
The next house to the west, a frame be

Kfjtt west of this house there was

in the habit of coming into town almost
daily and seemed well supplied with
American money, but during the past few

to their suspicious movements, excited the

When It Is remembered that this display has

the fireworks have been imported from

not be necessary to add that a few people in

What He Thinks of the Zubowtta Torpedo-It
Wouldn't Retard the Advanoe of
an Amerioan Army.
Nkw Vork, Oct. 8. The Zubowltz tor
pedo, so-called from the name of its Inven
tor, Lieut. Feoder von Zubowttx, of the
Austrian army, has been the subject of
much discussion among army officers and
engineers In this country since tbe Swiss
military authorities have made mov- ments
looking to the purchase of the right to make
the torpedoes and the secret of their con
struction. Oen. Ulysses S. Graut was called upon
yesterday, at bis office in the United Bank
building, by your corrcspo ident
fer the purposo of ascertaining
bis views as to tbe meriis of the
Zubowltz torpedo. When I called
the ex-President wai looking ovar a letter
from a widow of one of bis former soldiers
asking alms, with "may God bless you if
you will," in glaring characters, ncked on
as an afterthought. Ouo hand held a pencil
while the other was passed through
his dishevelled locks as he wrestled
with the problem as to how much
remain after dividing $1,000,000 to $16. He
puffed vigorously at a cigar stub, the fire
from which was playing sad havoc with a
once luxuriant rnouttache. My "Good
day, General." was responded to bv
"sixteen into ten won't go," and
an anxious and sad expression Payed
wuh -fnc khouy problem as to how the
people's gifts should be divided among
bis offspring. Still the ctgsr burned on and
the moustache was gradually dropplug
to the desk In ash plies. Suddenly, "62 -WO
is a fat little nest egg, " came from the
Hps of the Genera), and an exulf.n
"The World has been trying to make me
out worth a million. I have sixteen chil
dren and grandchildren, counting the
babies, more or less. Granting that they
each are worth (oO.OOO I might possibly say
that there is $1,000,000 la tbe family. I
hid a poor man, comparatively, I
can assure you, sir," exclaimed
tho General, at, without turning
toward-, his visitor, he still puffed vlgot
ou.sly at his cigar stunp.
Tin e .i u -pondent would like your
views on an entirely different subject to
day, General," remarked the correspond
ent. "What do you think of tbe Zubowltz
"What Is tbatf Ob, that Austrian Inven
tion. That's nothing new. It may be an
improvement on others constructed on the
same principal. It may be cheaper, but it
is nothing new.
"Don't vou think that these torpedoes
could be mad 3 the means of delaying
the advance of ao army In pursuit and tbus
assist a retreat f"C3
"A slight delay might be caused,
but it Is only necessary to contemplate tho
marching of the American soldier to be sat
isfied that a line of a hundred miles of these
torpedoes would be a comparatively small
matter when In pursuit of an enemy. The
detour could be made without incurring de
lay of much moment. During tho late war,
I do not remember having lost any time on
march when torpedoes were placed
In my path. A man or two might
have been killed, but the remainder of the
army was warned In time. The place for
tbe torpedo Is In tho harbor. There It will
perform effective service. A harbor de
fended with this weapon may be safe from
the attacks of the greatest and heaviest
armed war vessels afloat. It seems to me
that tbe torpedo Is tho coming weapon for
inch purposes. Mouey expended upon It
will make It unnecessary to sink more In
Iron dads. At this point the cigar bad
gone out, and the news-man left.
