UNIQUE A3 TO ITS PRIVILEGES.
Armies Mnst Co Itonnd the Ited Cross
Kstate in Indiana.
Washington, March SO. Miss Clara
Barton, president of the American Na
tional lied Cross society, in accepting the
magnificant gift of between TOO and 600
acres ot land on the borders of the Blue
Grass region of the state of Indiana, ten
dered the association last month by Dr.
Joseph Gardner, of Bedford, I ud., writes:
This land, as the pi operty of the Amer
ican National Red Cross, will be the one
piece of neutral ground on the western
hemisphere protected by an international
treaty against the tread of hostile feet.
Forty Nations Pledged to Neutrality.
"It is a perpetual sanctuary against in
vading armies and will be respected and
held sacred by the military powers of the
world. Forty nations are pledged to hold
all material and stores of the Ked Cross,
and all its followers, neutral in war and
free to go and come as their duties requir
ed. While its business headquarters will
remain, as before, at the capital of the na
tion, this gift still forms a realization of
the Lope so long cherished that the na
tional Ked Cross may have a place to ac
cumulate and produce material and stores
for sudden emergencies and great calami
ties." ENTERPRISING COLORED MEN.
Beaded by Fred louclas They Will Go
into a Bis Scheme.
Washington, March 20. The Freedom
Manufacturing company, a concern or
ganized by colored men to give employ
ment to their race, has opened its offices
here. The charter gives the company au
thority to acquire lands, to lay off a town,
buy and sell real estate, and to organize
and conduct mauufacturing enterprises.

site on the James river about ten miles
above Newport News, with one mile of
water front, has been secured.

They IV an t the Fat Snaps.
Washington, March 30. There is said
to be an unprecedented crush of applicants
for the various consulships, especially
those which are reported to be desirable
from a financial point of view. The best
of these are in Great Britain, where under
the operation of a peculiar law governing
the administration of oaths, the consuls are
enabled to retain' the greatest part of the
lees received on that account. London is
said to be worth $SO,000 per year.
Morton Savea Some Money.
Washington, March 20. As the result
of certain modifications and changes, dis
missals and furloughs, in the work of the
bureajijOf animal industry, Secretary Mor
ton has made a considerable reduction in
the number ot persons on tbe roll of the
bureau. The total monthly saving effect
ed by these dismissals a&d furloughs
amounts to (10,551.10, or an annual saving
of over 125,uu0.
The Cleveland's do to Church.
Washington, March 20. The president
and Mrs. Cleveland attended church yes
terday for the first time since thtir return
to Washington. They occupied the same
pew in the old First Presbyterian church
which was assigned to their use during
Cleveland's former administration.
Lleetricity anil Farming.
Washington, March 20. United States
consuls were directed by the suite depart
ment to prepare reports on the use of elec
tricity as a power in the propulsion of farm
machinery and implements and in the pro
pagation of plants in their respective dis
tricts. The papers received in pursuance
to the instructions are going through the
press and will soon be issued by the depart
ment. They show that at only a few places
have even experiments in these directions
been made. A. Uumont, of Chassart, Bel
gium, ran a threshing machine, requiring
twelve horse power, at a distance of;ST5
pards but not profitably. The few experi
ments as to propagation prove nothing

CORNERNIG THE COAL COMBINE.
Mlanesota legislator Stirring t'p a 15! -Monopoly.
St. Paul, March 20. There is a hard
fight going on here between the legislature
and the coal combine. Some days ago
John J. Rhodes, general manager here of
the combine, was before the legislative
committee and swore that there was no
combine. Later the committee seized his
books and among them a letter bock that
contradicted Rhodes, and showed that a
combine with all it implies does exist, and
that dealers who refused to be governed
thereby were boycotted. Over the seizure
of these books the war has waged hotter.
Rhodes says the seizure is without war
rant of law and anarchistic, while the so
lons have backed up their committee in
Matter Gets into the Courts.
Rhodes appealed to the courts for redress
and the legislature adopted resolutions in
structing the committee to pay no atten
tion to the courts. The committee surren
dered all the books except the letter book,
and later that was smuggled into the
hands of Walsh, a member of the investi
gating committee. Now Walsh is ordered
to appear before the judge with the books
today and the legislature will retort by
summoning the judge before it. There is
talk of cutting ciT the court salaries.

"Squire Abingdon", Who Died at New
Chicago, March 20. George Abingdon
Baird -Sqtiire Abingc!on,"as he was called
who died at New Orleans last Saturday,
was the son of a rich ironmaster of Scot
land, and was in this country as the back
er of Mitchell in his fight with Corbett
also to see a good deal of the conntry; he
saw it in extraordinary speed and died.
Baird was a mixture of good and bad like
a good many of his kind, and the evil that
he did is what the world knows most
about. His friends say that he did many
a kind action.
Some of His Mean Actions.
He had and income of A'', i.Oj per year,
which he spent lavishly. When heliackeda
man in a tight-he did it all hituseif and
gave his man the stahes lose or won.
He ran away with Dolly Tester, ballet
dancer and wife of the Mnrquis of Ailes
bury and paid the marquis aUuu.GOO for the
fun. His name was miAed up with that
of the notorious 15essie lieliwood, and also
with the wife of a Mr I-ii:c:ister. He
couldn't join the Pelican li:l at lonuon
because he was not cosideri d straight in
sporting matters. The death will probably
nave no effect on the Mitchtll-C'orbett

eis, and she is in a critical condition.
Febuary 12 her husband went to Kau Claire

BosTOX, March ao. Fire broke out
about 7 o'clock yesterday morning in Tre
mont temple, on Fremont treet, opposite
tbe Tremont house, and !efore noon the
entire structure was gutted. entailing a loss
roughly estimated at $3T5,0i. Fireman
Patrick Diinn, of engine 2. had a leg
broken and another man, name unknown,
is reported to have been seriously injured.
Box T29 was rung in about 7:10 o'clock.
This is the special box of tbe Parker house
;uid the people pictured with the ringing a
big hotel conflagration and all its attend
ing horrors. It was not the Parker housi
ablaze, but tbe Tremont temple ailjoiuing.
The fire in the temple had been discoveied
by one of the guests ou the fourth floor of
the Parker house.
Excitement iu the Farmer Ilonse.
He had first been aroused by the smoke
and on going to his window was startled
by seeing flames darting from the window
fronting him. He thought it was the ho
tel, and smashing the glass on one of the
signal boxes on his floor sent in the first
alarm. Pedestrians on Tremont street had
noticed the smoke issuing from the upper
story of the temple and they sent in an
alarm from box S, quickly following it
with a second. When the Parker house
box number was rung iu an employe of the
Parker house sounded the gongs of the dif
ferent floors to arouse the guests and
quickly the occupants of the rooms hur
ried out in great excitemei.t
Smoked "Km Out Pretty Thoroughly.
When it was seen that there was no
immediate danger of the lire reaching the
hotel the guesrs proceeded to remove their
trunks. No mishaps are reported to the
1 .irter bouse guests. Tue protective de
partment turned it attention to the saving
of carpets and furniture. Before the fire
department arrived six streams were
turned ou the lire from stand ftpes in the
Parker house, and Landlord Whipple feels
quite elated at the wort of his employes in
the assistance rendered, larough open
windows in the upper floors great volumes
of smoke poured ia from the burning
building, which was a fiery furnace twenty
minutes after the hrt alarm.
Hotels Uaiaageil by Water.
The blaze poured from all the upper win
dows, threatening the Hurnham building
and . r-. Butlers building adjoining on
Tremont street, placing the Parker house
and the Part hotel in danger in the rear,
and alarming the firemen lest it should
get down among the rookeries on Province
court. The firemen ran lines of hose up
through the Parker Lousu and the Park
hotel aud both buildings were damaged by
water. At :0 o'clock the fire was well
under control. The loss on the temple is
variously estimated at from -25,kA to
$.";75,H, while the Parker house is believed
to hare le-n damaged by water to the ex
tent of iC-O.oou.
Origin of the Conflagration.
The fire originated in the organ loft. The
definite cause is unknown, but it is at
tributed to either defective electric light
wires or overheated steam pipes. A later
estixate of the loss brings the total down
to 225,A'0. Tremort temple was not en
tirely burned. The flames extended to the
roof, destroying the same together with
the organ loft, gallery and generally
w-recking the interior, while the remainder
of the building was flooded.
