Denied the Fart.
Alexander II. Stephens, vice president
of the "Confederacy, was. one of the
most skillful debaters Georsia lias ever

occasion on which Stephens met de
feat. He had made a sfeech at a political
rally to which It Beemed impossible to
reply. A man named Russell was at
last persuaded to take the stand. He
nt onco attacked the record of his op
ponent with groundless charges.

A Great Discovery That Slumbered.
In earlier times one pf the greatest
discoveries of the age was made by a
man polishing amber, which was one
of the most highly prized of ancient
ornamental gems and. found only
among the crown Jewels of royalty or
in the caskets of princely rulers and
wealthy people dwelling in palaces.
The man, it was said, felt a mighty
shock: a riolent tremor thrilled through
ids hand and arm while he was rub
bing the stone. lie may have exagger
ated the account or the authors of the
many versions may have done so. but
the facts were there.
That man had stntck the trail of an
electrical discovery. But for -enturies
this suggestive truth of slumbering
power slept. Xo experiments were

Experiments supgestive of electric dis

From Paris and Wash
raris, Feb. 8. An official cf the

to the last United states note concern-
ug a revision of the Franco-United

negotiations have now assumed tlie
following exact form: France ex
presses her willingness to restore the
minimum tariff on United States meat.

on l'orto IKco coffee, it the Lnited

The United States answer, given six
weeks ago. expresses williugness to
ike up the foregoing if. liesides the
reduction on meat and coffee, France
will reduce the duties on other articles
sufficiently to counter-balance the con
cession on champagne. The answer to

Acre of Water Without Effect. .
From 0 p. w... when darkness came,

engines from Washington, Philadel
phia, Wilmington and other points,
was utterly powerless to make any ef
fective resistance to the consuming ele
ment, though for hours as many as
400 streams of water were thrown into
the flames. Indeed, so terrific was tho
heat from the time the fire started, and
so dense and suffocating the volume
of flying sparks and burning cinders,
that it was difficult for the firemen
to stand long within fighting distance
of the flames.
Fighters Kesort to Dynamite.
At 7 p. ni. th situation was so des
perate that Chief Horton decided that
the only thing left to do was to dyna
mite buildings at threatened points,
and thus prevent, as far as possible, a
further spread of the flames. In pur
suance of this plan several buildings
on South Charles street, between Ger
man and Lombard, were blown up.
Subsequently the splendid structure of
J. W. Putts & Co., notion dealers, at
Charles and Fayette streets, was dyna
mited, and then The Daily Record
building, Ross' drug store and others.
FIRE DEPARTMENT PARALYZED
6 tops Helpless to Stay the Cyclone of Fiery
This heroic remedy merely delayed
but did not seriously impede the on
ward march of the conflagration, and
for two hours or more at this writing
the fire department has stopped, prac
tically helpless and resourceless, in the
face of the roaring furnaces which send
their fierce tongues 200 feet into the
air. and which fill the heavens first
with a pall of black, funereal smoke,
and then with livid sheets of sparks
and lurid cinders.
Following the rapid destruction of
the palatial commercial buildings in
the wholesale district the cyclone of
roaring flames burst into Haltimore
street, licking up within a few minutes
the seven-story Mullin's hotel like some
instiate monster, and rapidly rolling
with irresistible force both eastward
and westward, cutting down in Its
wrathful wake wholesale and retail
houses, manufactories, shops, jewelry
stores, furniture emporiums and restau
rants. At Charles street the remorseless
tide swept on down Haltimore street.
but also turned into Charles street,
where it quickly engulfed the eieven-
story Union Tnlst building. Startin
! eastward on Fayrtte street, the. pul-
lishers and other occupants of The
Daily Herald building at Fayette and
St. Paul street and of The Record
building opposite were compelled to
vacjite by the enrushing flames, as
were the occupants of the Calvert anil
Equitable structures, two of the most
nassive office buildings in aBltimore.
Down Haltimore street a parallel
wave of roaring, crackling flames ate
its way, consuming everything in its
course, speedily, .reaching The Even
ing "Xews 'buildings, from whicn tlie
employes had to hastily flee, though
i ot until valuable records had lieen
removed. Shortly thereafter the Con
tinental Trust comiuiny, a fourteenth
story building took fire. A block be
low Tiie American newspaper building
was enveloped in clouds of sparks and
burning splinters and the employes
were ordered out.
