Rain was fallirg at the time, and the visitors dampened their silk blouses and gold laoe somewhat in the jonrney to the Cataract house, where room bad been engaged. Immediately upon arriving bere, LI aat tor a dentist, and bad his teeth examined. The rain was a great disappointment, as the viceroy was very dealrousof visiting the Ameri can Fall in the afternoon. There wa no cessation in the downpour until af ter 8 o'clock, when tbe aun struggled through tbe clouds. Carriages were summoned, and the visitor spent two hour in inspecting the wonder of Niagara. At the eleotrio power-honae of the Niagara Fall Power Company, the distinguished visitor bad an experience with American elcotrioity, tbe result being aa startling as it was unexpected. With his usual curiosity and desire to make a personal investigation of tbe maohinery before him, he poked at a switchboard with bis walking stick. The metal ferule closed the circuit In stantly, and Li's stick was violently torn from bis grasp. : He was naturally muoh astonished at tbe effect of the stick's contact with tbe switchboard, but fortunately he suffered no damage beyond a good scare. However, be deoided that he had seen enough, and went to his rooms, where be remained until bedtime. Last night Li and party passed their first night in an American sleeping oar.

Li asked particularly about the battles in whioh Grant participated, and all of them were indioated on the map for hia bene fit He dwelt long on this subject, and marveled that, although the South ern foroes succeeded in approaohing quite close to Washington, they were never able to capture that important point Tbe story of the assassination of Lincoln also interested bim greatly. He inquired what became of Booth, and where Linooln la buried, and then queried: "Do not the Amerioan people regard Linooln as a very good man?" Tbe deep interest he shows in rail road matter oonvinced those who paid attention to the aubjeot that his prin cipal object in visiting this country ii to study American railroad construc tion and management with view to the adoption of some of the features in a proposed general extension of tbe Chinese railway lytem. In fact, the vioeroy intimated today tbat he is ne gotiating for tbe aervioe of an Ameri oan oivil engineer, who, It he accept the offer made- him, would go to China in the near future and take charge ot the railway extension scheme now being outlined. Li says there are only about 300 milea of aingle-traok railroad in China at present Only three train are run each day, and there 1 no trafflo at night, the system being crude and the liability to aool dent oenstant menace.

UNDER A FALLING WALL. Eleven firemen Killed at Benton Her. bor, Michigan. Benton Harbor, Mich., Sept 8. The most horrible holocaust, with the greatest loss of life, known in this part of the state occurred last night, when Tore' opera bouse took fire and in the fight to save the building and other block adjoining, eleven firemen, one volunteer, met their fate at one time, the deaths being instantaneous with five of them. Sis lived only a few hour in awful agony, while several other met with severe injuries. During the evening, tbe play, "A Faotory Girl," had been given by looal talent, and tbe theater had closed but half hour before tbe fire wa discovered. The building was filled from the basement to tbe fourth floor with a suffocating smoke, which burst into sheet of flame throughout the entire adnience room, before the fire depart ment oould respond with a single stream of water, there being some oon- fusion at the outset, owing to the lack of book and ladder facilities, altnongn tbe looal Are oompanies bad dosed a two days' tournament, exhibiting great skill in their work.

Policeman Charles Johnson narrow ly escaped, a falling bricks tore his ooat halt off, while another offloer was protected by telephone pole. ' The work of removing the debris was commenced at onoe, and those pinned were removed in a few minutes, ex cept C. A. Hill, whose body was recov ered at 4 o'clock thi morning. It was believed that several more bodies were under tbe pile of bricks, and search wa oontinned until every doubt wa passed. - Tbe cause of the fire is a mystery. Guy Presoott is under arrest, as being one who knows of the origin. When asked by the reporter of the cause, he remarked that be "was not going to give anybody away." The building was erected seven years ago at a cost ot $40,000. A two story brick block owned by Joaeph Frick, whioh stood adjoining; waa de molished by the falling walls, which crashed through to the basement with out apparent resistance. The opera house block was occupied by the Even ing News, 8. Austin' bakery, J. Bern stein, clothing; John Holme, barber shop, and a fruit paoking firm in the basement The Frick block wa used for a retail boot and shoe business, and a dwelling. Tbe building and stocks destroyed, with losses, will aggregate about $80,000. A high wind prevailed, which caused the walla to tall outward, and adjoin ing buildings were saved only with the greatest efforts. A large quantity ot stage scenery, belonging to Henry Emery, ot the Katie Putnam oompany, J. A. Simon, and W. C. Hooks, was destroyed, without Insurance. Thousands witnessed the conflagra tion, and with difficulty tbe crowds were kept ont of danger's way. Tbe work of clearing np tbe street was oontinned throughout the day. The Arrest of Tolon.

NOTABLE INCREASE OF SALES. Brnd.tr.et. It' port Show. Much Im- proved Condition of Trade. New York, Sept 7. Bradstreet' weekly trade review says: . There is somewhat better feeling among whole sale merchants as to prospects for autumn sale in seasonable goods. Tbla extends to some industrial lines, notably iron and steel. Chicago sale of iron this week are larger than for all of August, and Pittsburg sale are larger and prices are better on the out look for harmony among steel-makers. Tbe most notable increase of sales of seasonable goods ba been at Chicago, among dry goods and hardware job ber. St Louis also reports a moder ate demand, so doe St Paul, where a state fair attracts visitors, Baltimore wholesale trade is checked by restricted bank credit, but is still larger than a year ago. At the South, relatively tbe most active demand ia at Charles ton, Augusta, Nashville, Birmingham and New Orleans. The most encoursging feature to tbe movement of prices lies in advance of quotations for wheat on tbe stronger statistical position and free export movement, higher prioes for iron and steel at Pittsburg and Chicago, and with a gain in demand and a further appreciation in quotations for cotton on renewed report of damage to the orop. Petroleum and leather are also higher. Trade on the Paoifio ooast, except in certains export lines, is of small volume. There are 83S business failure throughout the United Stiteta thi week, sixteen more than last week. Weekly totals continue higher than in like periods in preceding yean, except in 1893.
