an alarm of fire sounded, calling out the en
tire department The stiveta were thronged
with the thousands of toilers who were re
turning to tlnir homes from workshop and
factories, and quickly spread tbe
news that a frightful calamity had
happened in tho southern part of
the city. Tbe streets lea Jin to that
section were soon crowded with people go
ing to the scene, but their preeence there
heaped horror upon horror, as will ba seen
Moons of tha Catastrophe.
An explosion had occurred at the double
residence of Messrs. Michael Bowers and
John Harriot, at tbe corner ot Wall and
Noble allies. The cause of the calamity was
an accumulation of natural gas in the cellar
of the house referred to. The city has re
cently been supplied with natural gas, and
lending past the house occupied by Marriot
and Bowers Is one of the mains throuzh
which the commodity is furnished to the
public The pipes had leaked and tha explo
sive fuel had found its way through fissures
in the ground to the cellar which was the
seat ot the horror. It became ignited in
some unknown manner and exploded with
terrific foroe, wrecking the building and
Oiling tbe air with debris.
Tha Destroyer lay In Walt.
Mrs. Marriot was blown out of tbe bou
and a man named Qouldlng. who was stand
lug near the structure, was blown across the
Street. Mrs. Marriot was carried across the
street and into tbe residence of William
James, a bookkeeper for the book firm ot
Glock & Beck. Dr. Wlssinzer. a prominent
physician, was called to attend her injuries.

crowded with people attracted by the acci
dent, and it was soon necessary to close the
doors that no more might enter. Little
know those scores of spectators hudJled
around the sufferer that thcr were standing
in a death trap, which was then on tbe verce
carrying tnein into eternity.
THE SECOND EXPLOSION.
A r rightful Ipheaval That Creatoa Hor
Suddenly the air was rent bv a tremendous
explosion which made the earth quake and
flUed the air with flying timbers, bricks and
debris of all kinds. Darkmws ensued and
then a dead-like stillness reigned for a few
moments. It wss brokou bv shrieks and
death groans. The house in which lav the
powerless rorra or Mrs. Marriot had been
blown to atoms and it occupants burled be
neath the wreck. Hundreds of spectators
who lined the sidewalks were knocked vio
lently down by the shock and laid powerless.
Then to cap tbe climax a team of soirited

Important Features of the Nev
A LIVELY TIGHT A SUKE THING.
Carlisle States the Changes lo a Demo
cratic Caucus and Its Voice Is for War
Cen. Filibuster Likely To Ba a Promi
nent Figure In tbe Near Future Mill
ions for a Navy Proceedings la the
Washwqto City, Jan. 2i Tbe caucus
of Democratic members of the house last night
lasted for over two hours, but at 10:80 o'clock
when an adjournment was taken, tho only
resolution adopted was one enjoining secresy
on tbe caucus proceeding). Tbe meeting was
well attended. Holman, the permanent
chairman, presided and after he had called
the caucus to order recognized Carlisle, who
proceeded to explain the principal features
of the new code prepared by the Republican
members of the committee on rules. Car
lisle said that the radical and dangerous
features of the new code proposed to abolish
the house calendar; to revive the morning
hour; to make 100 members constitute a
quorum; to abolish as motions of privilege
those for the taking of a reec or for the ad
journment of the bouse until a fixed date.
Another Important Innovation.
Another and very important innovation
provided tor by the new code, Carlisle ex
plained, provided for tbe transaction ot busi
ness during the morning hour. By this rule
a committee, on making a report, could de
maud immediate consideration of tbe bill on
which the report is made and could continue
to have it considered during the morning
hour day after day until disposed of. No
motion U consider another question, except
that of another committee, can, under this
rule, be enterJaimvl while the bill is undis
ood Prospect for Filibustering.
Considerable discussion followed Carlisle's
explanation all the speakers favoring fight
l.ig tbe new code on tbe fbxir of the house
until the end. Without coming to any action
on the matter the caucus proceeded to the
consideration of a plan of action on the con
tested election esses. Many different propo
sitions were brought forward, and a lively
and interesting discussion took place. All
agreed, however, that any attempt on the
part of tbe Ri-publicans to have any of
these cases considered tfore the new code
of rules are adopted should be opposed in
every possible way, even by filibustering of
the most radical character.
HALE'S BILL FOR THE NAVY.
A Proposition to Spend S349,OOO,O00 on
Washington City, Jan. 25. Yesterday
me senate committee on naval ansirs or
dered a favorable report on Senator Hale's
bill for tbe construction of 127 naval vessels
ot various kin.W at the cost, including $63,
000,000 already expended, of 349,W 5,000.
The decisiou, however, was not unanimous,
and l handler and McPherson will submit a
minority report, as they favor the construc
tion or fast cruisers, torpedo boats, etc., in'
stead of line of battle ships at the present
time, while tbe majority of tbe committee
desire the immediate construction of heavy
oawe snips, senator Stanford also is un
derstood to be only partly in accord with the
Dlscusstof Customs Administration.
Washington City, Jan. 25 The house
put in yesterday considering McKinley's cus
toms administration bilL The principal
ngbt was over the amendment requiring
gooas, against tue classification of which an
appeal has been taken, to remain in govern
ment custody until the appeal U decided.
Mills opposed it because, be said, if the im
porter got his goods and sold them he put
on the higher duty: then if he won the suit
be pocketed the difference, takinz money
from the taxpayer with one hand, and from
the government with the other. Carlisleop-
posea it oecause it was a hardship on the
nonest Importer only, as tbe dishonest im
porter did not go into court. The laws
should be made so plain as to prevait wrong

because Miss Bly had no knowledge that

Novel but Not Extraordinary.
The trips these two young ladies took were
novel, inasmuch as they went alone with but
one suit of clothes each and that not like
McGinty's, their best and carrying small
handbags for baggage. To beat Phineas
Foggs' time, barring accidents, is not a
great feat as the facilities are undoubtedly
greater now than when he made his famous
voyage. The most exciting part of the trip
for Miss Bly was that across the American
continent, which was made in unprecedented

As stated in tbe first paragraph Miss Bly
arrived in Chicago yesterday. To meet her
a party of newspaper men left on the Atchi

yesterday morning for Joliet, whore the
special train tbat had borne her all the way
from San Francisco was due about 7 o'clock.
The trip was made all right, and Miss Bly's
train arrived in due time. It came on like
a cannon ball, and the Chicago reporters'
car was coupled on and tbe run to Chicago
begun, the newspaper men meantime invad
