Immediately the alarm was heard a a
tongue of flame rose from the whole- *

cloud of smoke. The tire department \
made the usual quick response, and be- i
fore the last note had run from the *
market tower a general alarm, 4-11. was 4
rung in. The flames reappeared this time (
with the aspect of licking everything }
before them, and for twenty minutes a I !

brick building of Griggs, Cooper & Co.,
wholesale grocers, corner of East Third
nnd Wacouta streets. When the de
partment arrived the fourth and fifth
stories were in a mass cf flames. The
whole building was apparently doomed.
It seemed incredible that the building
adjoining Farwell. Ozmun, Kirk & Co.,
hardware merchants, could be saved,
and there was no telling what building
might follow. No men could have
worked harder than the members of the
fire department. They did not give up
what seemed the almost futile attempt
of saving the Gr'mgs-Cooper building,
end towards that end directed their
efforts to prevent the flames spreading.
The large water tower was brought into j
service, and from its huge nozzle
r continuous avalanche of water
was poured into the furnace
like lire raging i thin the
building. A scoie of smaller streams,
handled by the firemen mounted on
ladders raised in the center of the street,
were also thrown upon the burning
mass. This continued for an hour, with
no apparent effect. The fire raged and
roared, ever and anon the flames being
buried in dense smoke, giving hope that
they were at length under control.
when, lo! in a moment they had burst
forth with added fury. And thus the
lire continued. To the people living at
n distance it would have seemed
as if the whole city was in
flames. To those whose curiosity
liad led them to the scone the aspect
was an awful one, but not so bad as that
which distance save it the appearance.
The sea; of the fire all this time was in
the two upper stories. To venture on a
speculation, the tire originated on the
fourth story, then spread to the second
story, both of which were simply siz
zling when the firemen arrived. These
two stories were stocked with merchan
dise, adding fuel to the flame, which
seemed as if it would never burn out.
To these two stories up to 1 o'clock, an
hour and a half from the first alarm,
the fire confined itself, for, despite the
lieroic work of the firemen, it could not
be seen that they made any appreciable
effect. The roof had quickly succumbed,
nnd the general appearance was this:
• The upper part of the building a caul
dron of seething fire, blazing out at the
broken windows, the flames playing all
manner of fantastic tricks, first shoot-
Ing upwards, diving down again and
hiding their deadly embrace behind a
sea of smoke, darting to the Third
street side of the building as if to
ridicule the frantic efforts of the water
tower, then covering itself with the
friendly smoke, paying a visit to the
Wacouta side and once more lighting
up the horizon with its horrible illum
ination. There was not a spark to be
Been on the ground floor, the second or
third stories: but, from the nature of
tie fire burning, it could not be con
ceived how any pan of the build-
Ing could be saved. No ef-
Forts on the part of the firemen
were relaxed. They worked like a
piece of machinery, guided by a master
band. But despite them the tire spread.
At 2 o'clock flames began k» emerge
■ ■ > ■» .
ominously from tlie Farwell-Ozrnun-'
Kirk building. If Ihe fire had "sizzed"
ud to Ihe pit sent, from u<>\\ on the con-;
narration fairly outdid itself. Fur a
whole block there was nothing but
lire. The lire in the Griggs-Cooper
building was descending; it was
but a question of time when it would
be gutted. Stream* of water were
playing around the whole Mock, but the
dames played still merrier, catching
and crackii up everything combusti
ble to be grasped, and raising their
heads in utter defiance of the watery
showers. Awe-inspiring as the scene
had been, it became mote awe-inspiring.
To add to the alarm of citizens, shortly
after 2 o'clock the tire alarm once more
sounded. The call, however, was from
Seventh and Jackson, where Karl Sim
mons' drug store was quickly gutted.
With the Griggs-Cooper building
doomed, and every appearance that the
Farwell-Oznum-Kirk building would
quickly follow, a new danger began to
threaten. A long line or express unices
are ranged behind the block, and noth
ing but skillful management could save
them if the Farwell-Oziuim-Kirk build
ing was destroyed. Such a condition of
affairs helped the firemen to redouble,
if that were possible, their efforts. If
water could do it the thing would
quickly have been accomplished. The
whole vicinity ot Third street, from
Broadway to Sibley, and VVacouta
street, from Fourth street to Second
street, was taken up with engines and
apparatus of one kind and another. The
shrieking whistles of the engines, the
rushing of firemen hither and thither,
and the mad prancing of horse made an
exhilarating sight, which, but for the
terrible destruction going on a few
yards away, would have been very en
tertaining. The noise naturally at
tracted a considerable number of peo
ple. The guests at the Merchants'
turned out" in force, diagging them
selves from their beds to see **a really
big lire." And they got their desire.
It was a big (ire. the biggest, perhaps—
at all events the most stubborn — which
the St. Paul department lias been called
upon to tackle. There were also a few
gentlemen "just returning from the
charity ball" and a few pert misses re
siding in the neighborhood. The cold
was intense, and. regardless of the dis
play furnished, which equaled in
its * intensity and horror anything
that can be conjuivd by the
pyrotechnic genius, the spectators
could not be prevailed upon to
stay any great length. At no time,
therefore, was there any great crowd,
and the firemen were in no way ham
pered in their work.
The blaze continued. It is true that
at times there was more smoke than fire,
giving birth to the belief that the end
was in sight, but the belief was pre
maturely dashed to pieces. Once
more the flames Hashed forth and
the situation was worse than be
fore. The two buildings were doomed;
that was evident. If the department
could keep the lire from spreading be
yond the block they would then accom
plish meritorious work. The 'flames
had now entire possession of the two
buildings, from ground upwards, and
nothing but a lack of fuel could stop
their course. The entire block, within
the four black-looking towering walls,
was a trough of (ire.
The firm of Griggs, Cooper it Co. is
composed of Chauncey W. Griggs', c.

The firm of Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk &
Co. is officered by the following gentle
men: Aaron M. Oz»mm, president;
Freeman P. Strong, vice president;
Robert A. Kirk, treasurer; W.T.Miller,
secretary. The company, up to some
mouths ago, was under the presidency
of George L. Farwell, who retired from
active participation in the business, but
still retains capital therein. lie is now

At 2:40 o'clock, when the blaze was
at its height, with the tlames raging
furiously in the east end of tlie block, a
cry of warning burst from the specta
tors. The entire east wall of Farwell.
Oztnutl, Kirk & Go's, building was
seen to bul£e. Instantly the fire
men dropped their hose and retreated
beyond danger; next instant, with a
terrific crash, the entire wall gave way
and fell thundering into the open lot
adjoining. No one was injured. After
that the (ire blazed away with re
newed impetus, and a huge pillar
of lire was projected higher than ever
into the sky. producing a spectacle
lire was projected higher than v\w
[> the sky. producing a spectacle that
for terror and sublimity was never
equalled in St. Paul. At this time the
great effort was directed to preventing
the spread of the lire to the pas
senger and express buildings in
the rear. The water was concen
trated to that end. and at this
writing there is positively no further
danger. The only remaining peril is
now in the large walls which are still
standing, some of them with very little
support and in very threatening atti
tudes. Every piece of apparatus in the
city was stil! ai work at 4 a. m.. and the
lire was practically under control.

In the excitement of the lire and at
the late hour it was impossible to get
any elaborate or exact details of either
loss or insurance. Practically speaking,
the building and the stocks of both
firms are total losses. The former
burned clear through to the cellar, and
nothing but the black walls remain.
Of the several black walls remain,
the several stocks, practically
nothing was saved. This being
the height of the jobbing sea
son, both firms carried therein
heaviest stocks, and perhaps $400,000
each would not be too high a figure.
One of the firm of CiriggS, Cooper iv Co.
thought that their loss would at least
foot ' up 1350,000, while he believed

ried at least $400,000. The insurance on
the former stock is about 1285,000.
Insurance carried by the hardware linn
will reach a higher figure, it is thought,
though nothing definite can be learned.
Tne building was erected about three
years ago, and cost in the neighborhood
of .*:*.00,000. It is a total loss, and will
bring the aggregate destruction by tire
up to a round million dollars.
Later it was ascertained that the stock
of Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk & Co. was val
ued at £300,000, consisting of hardware
and cutlery. The insurance is $225,000,
placed through the several city agencies
in small amounts. The building is owned
by D.C. Shepherd and valued at 5250,000.
The portion on the corner was erected in
ISSO and the eastern half added three or
four years later. It carried about SIOC,

Madison, Wis., Nov. 17.— The long
heralded cases against ex-State Treas
urers Harshaw and McFetridge. wherein
the sto'e sues to recover interest on pub
lic funds deposited in banks by them,
was called in the Dane county circuit
court today. Judge Newman presiding.
The tact that moneys were so deposited
is admitted, but thts defendants declare
that the inteiests belong to them as an
indemnity fund against loss by tire,
robbery, defalcation or the failure of
banks. It is also conceded that the
state did not provide a secure place
for the funds and hence it was
deemed '>est to place them in out
side vaults. Bauks paid them a certain
amount for the use of the funds while
in their custody, although the money
was subject to call at any time. The
attorneys for the state are Attorney
General O'Connor, 11. M. Bashford and
Col. W. F. Vilas. The defense is ren
resented by C. W. Felkcr and A. \Y.

AN IMPORTANT RULING.
Connecticut Democrats Mny Yet
Receive Their Itifjhts.
Nr.w Havkx, Conn., Nov. IT. — A de
cision of Judge Phelpa in the superior
court at Clinton yesterday is of
the utmost importance in its bear
ings on the Connecticut gov
ernorship contest now in the courts.
A Democrat contested the election last
October of a Republican on the ground
that Republican oallots were left blank
as to a certain candidate, or had been
pasted or written over the ballots.
Judge Phelps found that.owing to flaws
in the ballots of both parties, not a
single legal ballot had been cast
in Clinton at the last elec
tion. By agreement of both
sides all the law points involved were
reserved tor the supreme court of the
state at its January session. These will
thus reach the supreme court not long
alter its decision in the quo warranto
case. The hitrhly important ques
tion is about the prohibition of
blank ballots cast at the state
election of 1890, to the. number
of :-.(K>o. which would immediately let in
all the Democratic candidates for state
otlices. Judge Hall. Republican, in the
East Lynn contested election case, de

When being charitable means that
one visits uncomfortable-looking peo
pie, or works among the poor, or delib- .
erately retrains from saying mean
things about one's neighbors, there are
—shame that it should be so— only a
few ot us who practice charity as a
virtue. But when being charitable
means that one wears one's newest
sown, smiles one's company smile and
dances all night with the best dancers
one knows, "there is not one of us
whose soul is not filled with divine
charity. And so charity balls, while al
ways the most elaborate affairs the sea
son brines, are inveriably great suc
cesses. Last night's chanty ball was
by far the most successful one ever
given in St. Paul. . There were wonder
fully few people present who are not

work, barring the mishap of one young
man who left his rapper ticket in his
overcoat, and had to desert th.? young
woman with him at the door of the sup
per room while he went after it.

appointed tables Was dressed with
chrysanthemums and maidenhair ferns.
The same decorations with garlands of
smilax were repeated in the dressing of
the Eallery where the musicians sat.
The ball at its height was wonderfully
pretty to see. There were between five
and six hundred guests, and the dancing
floor was ■'crowded. Pretty gowns, a
great many new, .: debutantes galore,
and, what was more encouraging,, num

most Certain Disruption
of the Republic.
Dictator Fo'nseea Asks fop a
Credit to Secure War Ma
His Opponents Credited With
Continued Success in
Many Provinces Reported on
the Verge of Declaring
Loxdox, Nov. 17.— The Telegraph
gives publicity to sensational news from
Kio Janeiro. No explanation is given
as to how the news was allowed to be
cabled, and as it is known that the gov
ernment of the dictator has taken com
plete control of the cables and has
refused to permit any intelligence
not favorable to its interests to
be telegraphed out of the country, to
day's dispatches are not accepted here
as certain to be accurate. The Ex
chansre company's advices from Kio de
Janeiro report complete prostration of
the postal service. This, it is asserted,
w.is suspended today. It is sup
posed that this refers to the
general postal service of the
republic, though it may mean that of
the capital. At the same time the gov
ernment has put a stop to the transmis
sion of all press dispatches by tele
graph lines to the various cities of the
country. This step is interpreted
as meaning that the opposition
to the dictator's rule is grow
ing in the provincial centers
and that the authotities are determined
as far as practicable to prevent one cen
ter of dissatisfaction and incipient re
bellion from gaining encouragement
nnd inspiration from prompt intelli
gence ot revolutionary movements or
uprisings in other parts of the republic.
A state of Siege.
In Riojde Janeiro it is declared that a
practical state of siege exists. The city
is in the hands and at the mercy of the
dictator's soldiers. The most stringent
measures have been adopted to prevent
disorder or organized opposition to the
present regime. If this report proves
to be founded on fact it would
seem to be very clear that a very large
element in the capital is opposed to the
directorship, and is only prevented by
the strong hand of the military from as
serting itself. As all the papers who
refused to support the dictator have
been suppressed, the opposition has no
Today's dispatches report that the
forces ot the opposition or party of se
cession in Kio Grande no Sul are al
ready in the field and are marching fully
equipped to meet the army of the cen
tral government. The armies are
not far separated from each other
and a decisive battie may be ex
pected within a very short period.
Previous advices have declared the
army of the seceders to be 00.000 in
number. How numerous the dictator's
forces are is not known. It is also as
serted that the principal naval and mili
tary officers stationed in the state of
Para have held a meeting, and de
cided in favor of a declara
tion of independence from the
Brazilian union by tint state.
Many familiar with men and matters
in that state believe that for some time
to come anarchy will prevail and that
business will be at a practical stand
still. With two of the most important
states of the union, one at tne extreme
south and the other on the Amazon, in
secession, and with threatening dissatis
faction in other states, and with even
his capital in a state of siege, the out
look for Marshal Deodoro da Fonsrc i,
dictator of all the Brazils, is not par

Abuses in British Prisons to Rise
Dnu/ix. Nov. 17.— The death of P.
W. Naily, who died Monday week in
Mount Joy prison, and whose remains
have just been interred in Olasnevin
cemetery, near this city, will undoubt
edly prove one of the sensational feat
ures of the battle to be fought in parlia
ment immediately after the reassem
bling ot the houses. For once it is ex
pected that the sympathies of even some
of the more rabid Tories will be enlisted
in the approaching inquiry, for it is
claimed that Naily's death was direcliy
due to most hard and infamous treat
ment received at the hands of the keep
ers of MUbank prison. London, where
Nally was detained previous to being
transferred to Mount Joy prison.
The. friends of Naily are not the only
people to make the charges; and they
are not the usual charges made by Irish
Nationalists against the keepers of the
English prisons in which they have been
unfortunate enough to sojourn for pe
riods of months or years. The charges
made are the result of a carefully in
quiry into tho facts by an unbiasedcor
oner's jury, who, atter hearing a great
deal of testimony, after examining the
keepers of the two prisons ane eliciting
from them some most startling admis
sions, yesterday rendered a well-consid
erci verdict to the effect that P. \\\
Nally, instead of dying from typhoid
fever as announced by the prison ofli
cials, died from the effects of the harsh
and most cruel treatment the unfort
unate Irishman had been compelled to
endure in Millbank prison. This treat
ment, according to the verdict of the
coroners jury, so shattered Naily's
health that lie was practically in a dy
ing condition when transferred to Mount
Gladstone's attention has also been
called to the matter, and it is expected
that he will not let such a chance of
puuiiucling the Tories escape him easily.

Stranger grabbed a music case out of the

Freeman jumped after him, and the

amid deafening applause. When the

delight. Danz is entitled to great credit
in satisfy ing the people, and Freeman
is the hero of the boar in savins? the

from Rochester people foe the success
of the show.

ALBERT Lka, Nov. 17.— Many years

and, with improvements, is worth $15,000
or 920.000, the tower and tank of the

Savk Cexter, Nov. 17. -The Sank
Center Brewing company's plant burned
this forenoon, and the loss will be about
$1">,o00. A large quantity of malt and
many barrels of b:>er wore destroyed.
The building was built about twenty
five years ago, and at the present time
was owned by the Bohiner estate, of
Meirosp, and managed by F. E. Min
nette, who also lived in it. There was
no insurance on the building, plant or
Minnette's effects; hence it is a total
loss. J. A. Dubois & Co.'s mill, across
the street, had a close call, and but for
the firemen and water works would
have been destroyed.

sides announced their readiness to pro

By a mutual agreement it was decided
the trial should come off during the week
beginning on Dec. 10. A joint applica
tion was made and granted by the judge
for an order permitting the United
States consul general at Paris
to take depositions for either
side in the suit. The bar

messenger will be at once dispatched to
Paris to get the depositions of promi

who have expressed a willingness to
testify that Baron de Stuers, minister
iv Paris lor the Netherlands, is a rone
and gambler, and witnessed his cruel
and miserable treatment of the baron
ess. The baron, however, his attorneys
claim, is tickled to death over the order,
a* he will get the depositions of the
three physicians who, in the summer of
1890, previous to the baroness' flight
from her palace in Paris, examined her
as to her mental condition, and declared
her bordering on nervous insanity.
