PERATE FIGHT AGAINST THE
FLAMES?THE LOSS WAS ABOUT
Last night about 12o'clock the alarm of
lire was sounded throughout the town.
The alarm was sent in from the box lit
the freignt depot, hut that was several
blocks away from the lire. It served,
hovever, tosend the firemen in the wrong
direction, and thus gave the Maines a lease
upon two buildings which were soon con
It. seems that the fire broke out, in the
I bouse of Beverly Tweedy, a colored man,
who resided at 182 Fifth avenue n. w.
The. origin of the lire could not lie. as?
certained, hut. it. is supposed that it start?
ed from a defective line. The night was
cold and the wind was blowing, and the
little cottage was soon .t mass of Ilaines.
The fire companies upon reaching tic
scene of tin-lire, found that it was only
practical to use one plug and as a conse?
quence the water was limited to only one
stream. The lire soon spread to a six
room framsdwelling located directly east,
of Tweedy's, which was occupied by Steve
Arrlugtou, a colored driver, and was the
property of the Syracuse Building and
But little of Tweedy's furniture was
saved,as it, was barely possible for the in?
mates of the house to get out when the
fire was discovered.
A large proportion of the belongings of
Steve Arlington was saved but were some?
what damaged by the rain and snow.
The house was completely destroyed.
Situated directly to the enst and next,
to Arringtou's house was that of ,1. W.
Winglield and .1. Hi ley Duugec. This
also caught, lire ,mil would have been con?
sumed hail it. not. been for the heroic
efforts of Chief McFall and his assist?
ants. They fought manfully and did all
in their power to save the property. The
last house damaged to the extent of about
$500. The total loss will probably reach
$1.000, It could not be learned whether
there was any insurance.

Supreme Court Will Hear His Mot ion for
Writ Against the Three Friends,
Washington. Feb. 1.?Attorney Gene?
ral Harmon to day submitted to the su?
preme court of the United States his pe?
tition for a writ of ccrtcirari to bring up
at on te for review here the record of the
United States court in Florida in the case
of the filibustering schooner Three
Friends, notwithstanding the appeal of
the ease to the "circuit court of .appeal,
lie coupled with the petition a no tiou to
advance the case for an early hearing,
despite the fact that the court was about
to enter upon the February recess.
The attorney general spOKO of the im?
portance ol the case and the necessity for
an early "decision, saying the questions
involved were likelyjto arise at any time
on the Atlantic coast. The rights of in?
dividuals, he said, sank into insignifi?
cance in comparison with the public in?
terests at stake. The owners of the ves
.sel, he said, ought, not to c\bject loathe is-,
sue of the writ, because if their conten?
tion was sustained an early adjudication
would, certainly not injure them, while if
the case went agitinst them the value of
a smilil boat was all that was involved.
W. II alle tt Phillips, of counsel for ap?
pellees, argued that the writ should not
issue, because there was nothing in the
record to show that the case bad got into
the circuit court, of appeals, whence it.
was sought, to bring it to the supreme
court of the United States. After taking
time for consideration the chief justice
announced that the petition bad been
granted and argument would be beard on j
Monday, the 15th instant.

FUSES TO CONSIDER THE
Washington, Feb. I.?Immediately
after the Senate convened at noon Mr.
Sherman moved an executive session,
statin.: thai it would require but a short
time. When the doors were closed ho re?
ported the treaty of arbit ration as amend?
ed Saturday by the committee. The first
of these amendment-, adds at end of first
article the following:
"But no question which affeots the for?
eign or domestic policy of each of the
high contracting parties, or the relations
of each with any other State or power,
by treaty or otherwise, shall be subject
to arbitration under this treaty, except
by special nttreemeut.''
The second strikes out all reference,
wherever it occurs, to the'King of Swe?
den ami Norway as the umpire where the
tribunal fails to agree upon such umpire.
After the report was made Mr. Sher?
man asked that inasmuch as the text of
the convention had been made public
the injunction of secrecy be removed from
the text of the amendments, but Semi
tors objected and this was denied.
No attempt was made to arrange a
time for consideration of the treaty, nor
was nnytbiug said about debating it in
open session. ?
The doors were re-opened at \2:4~> antl
regular business was proceeded with.
Various petitions in tavor)jjof the ratifica?
tion of the arbitration treaty were pre
sented: atnoug them one from the New
York hoard of trade, presented by Mr.
Hill, and cue from the Connecticut legis?
lature, presented by Mr. Platt.

The discussion theti proceeded on Mr.

to have the bill recommitted. Mr. Vllns
spoke of the inter-oceanic canal project
as a historic dream, and quoted Senator
Sherman's statement the other day that
the canal would not be constructed bv
any incorporated company and must, be
built, if at all, by the Government; and
also that the bill could not possibly pass

commerce to prohibit railroad ticket

which was devoted'to miscellaneous bus?
iness, the following hills were passed:

opposition to Luttrell's appointment it
would not. bo made permanent.
The stockholders hope to prevent the
receivership being made permanent, and
an effort was made on account of outside
stock tedders to take the association out
of the courts and continue it.
