EGG HARBOR CITY THREATENED WITH DESTRUCTION. A Train's Wtld Dash Through Walls of Flnme Tha Passengers Crouched on the I'lonr as Tongues of Fire tauped Through the Windows. Atkaxtic; (JiTT, Fept. 14. Forest, fires re again raging in this vicinity, and a vat-t amount ef velnable trnsber has been drstroysfl. Th fire bcan at Kifa, a short distance irora jsron Hirseli s lieorrw col ony, psveral r.srvow escapoa from death are reported in the etttlying sections, and It Is feared the placo will be destroyed. The train containing the officials of th Bounty court and a large number of law yers and litigants clashed through toe Mate. Engineer Connelly supposed that the area ef fire along the tracks was not s great as it turned out to be, and the result was that every ear was blistered and tha woodwork rharred. The passengers threw Ihemselves prostrate on the floor of tho ears and remained in this position until they ware out ef danger. They could hear the glass in the windows crack. Kngineer Connelly put on an extra head of steam as the train approached the flames and dashed through them, although sotno of the passengers tried to persuade the conductor to stop the train rather than make such a foolhardy attempt. Engineer Connelly was determined, however, and he ran his train through. One of the passengers said that the sus pense was terrible, and that the situation cannot be fnUy appreciated by a person who has not had the actual experience, lie says that while he and the other pas sengers were lying on the floors of the cars they could hear the glass in the windows crack, and that once several panes fell out entirely. The flames came through the windows like the tongues of giant serpents snarl ing and hissing. The heat was something terrific, and tho black, penetrating siuoko of the blaring pine, Impregnated strongly with pitch, was almost suffocating. Although only JO seconds elapsed from the time that the train entered the flames until it emerged, those who wore aboard of it do not care for the experience again. Flames Overtake Woman. Jacob Seaman, a wealthy cigar dealer of Philadelphia, went to Beega to look at some grouud with a view to purchasing. He was in an open field and the flames crept upon him so steadily, and with suoh ?:ret rapidity that he was obliged to run or his life. Mrs. Mary Maratsky lived in an humble dwelling whioh she had built in a clearing of the weeds early In the sum mer. She saw the forest flames approaching hsr little homo and lingered with tho idea of saving a few ef her household effects, and her dress caught Are. Ae she ran the breeze fanned her garments into flames. Shu was terribly burned and had to bo token to the city for treatment. A number of narrow escapes nro report ed. Last night there was no sign of tho fires abating, and. if the wind does not die out, today may furnish a talo of dev astation heretofore unaqualed in tho his tory of forost fires in tho state. A mile from Kgg Harbor City tho forest is all ablar.e, aud the situation is more dangerous now than it has been nt any time during the summer, for thero has been no ralri in weeks. The timber is as dry as though it had been in a kiln. The wind is high, with no sign of abating. It is impossible to seethetky on account of the dense clouds of black smoke that hang like a pall over the city. The picture is magnificent to one who can behold it ralmly, but the people whoso lives and property are ia danger are awe stricken. T.gc n arbor Cltv Ablase. Eo.ft FfAr.noR City. n. .T., Pepf. 14. The forest fire which started in the forest Thursday three miles east of here arrived last nie;ht in the heart of the town, and thousands of dollars of damage basal ready been done. The Carries were led in to the city by a narrow strip of timber which leads np to the city park. The great champagne distilleries and storehouses of L. Renault Co. are in imminent danger, and it is feared that they cannot be saved. All tho factories have been closed, and the employees are engaged in fighting the flames. Several hundred men are doing all in their power to combat the blare. The Are alarms havo been ringing in cessantly, and the women and children nro In oeratoof panic. It seems as if thewhole town is doomed. MiV: LAXPicn, N. J., Sept. 14.

Lord Dunraven'i Wivenhoe erew are busily at work todaj Btrlpping Valkyrie of her racing rig and preparing her for a trip back to England. There will not be another Defender-Val kyrio race. Notwithstanding tho efforts ol clubs and individuals to bring about an other meeting between theso racing ma chines, although purses, cups and yacht ing honors hare been offered, nothing probably will como of It all. Lord Dnnraven was seen and asked thes qur.ntions: "Will you race Valkyrie this year or it this country again?" "No," replied his lordship. "Will you make another off ort to win tho America's cupf" "No." "Do yon intend to retnrn to England todav, as has been reported? "No, I cannot sav exactly when I shall return to England, but in nil probability 1 will start at an earlv date. The following telegram was sent to Gen eral Charles H. Taylor by C. Oliver Iso- lin, who represents the syndicate that owns tho vncht Defender: "Many thanks for generous offer. 1 must decline at present to sail Valkyrie Tho G'obe's yachting representative in New York telegraphed the following tc General Taylor: "Mr. Kersey has telephoned mo that th Valkyrie is being dismantled, and that Lord Dnnraven has made no formal reply to your proposition of yesterday. Mr. Iselin, in an interview, was asked "Have you received a proposition from General Charles H. Taylor of Boston to sail a match race with Valkyrio III oft Marblehead for a If S, 000 international challenge cup?" "No, 1 havo not," he responded. "Would you cntortain such a proposi tion? "No." "Will you race with Valkyrie III agalnf "No." Mr. Iselin's tone as he uttered the word showed clearly thnt he meant it. H. Maitland Kersey, who was seen at the oftiee of tho White Star steamship lino, discussed tho latest phase of tho situ tion. "Of courso I hnve rend of General Tay lor's generous offer," ho said. "I may as well say, however, that tho owners of Val kyrie 111 have decided not to race her nuain in America. It is certainly pleasing to us that such an offer should have been made, and by such a man as General Tny lor, but tho proposal cannot be enter talnert." "Is tho determination not to again race the Valkyrio III hero final, n6 matter what Inducements may be offered?" "It is final. Lord Dnnraven will posi tivelynot sail tho boat again in American water. Ton may state that authorlta- tlvolv . " Mr. Ixersey also said that tho Valkyrlo's sails would be shipped to Cowes. Her spars will follow later. It was the general opinion about th New Wirk Yacht club's quarters today that tho racing with Valkyrie was at an end In spite of tho offers of a cup for a special match. CHOLERA ON A CRUISER. Five Cases and One Ieath on tho Fnlted States Steamer ltennington Sax FitAXCisi o. Sept. 14. Dr. Kuppert Ulna of the Marme hospital service 1Q this eitv has received a letter from his brother, w ho is an ensign on board of the I'nited Stales steamer lienn.ington, stat ing there had boon live onsjft of cholera among the crow of the Bennington. One death resulted. The San Francisco board of health has declared Honolulu au infected port. The lmnil quarantine officer has L.eeu directed to place all vessels from Honolulu in quar antine and keep them until the ship is released by tho board. Advices from Honolulu say: There was a good deal of uneasiness when the sailor on the Bennington became affected, aDd lhat alone caused many to believe the din ease would spread to the whites, and many families hurriedly packed their belonging! and fled to the beach, a few miles from town, likewise a large number going to the outside districts. So many took ad vantage of this that tho beard of healtb issued an order forbidding auy eonnection with the enter districts, no one being al lowed to leave town without a pass lrom the health authorities. All tho houses along tho Nuuanu stream have been con demned and burned and the stream thor oughly disinfoeted as well as the harbor. The Dennington was thoroughly disln fert-cd, und the ship went to sea the day after the sailor diod. The vessel is now anchored outside tho harbor, whero sh has been for several days, together with the Olympic and several of the intorisland ileet. There has been no connection with the other islands sineo the first outbreak, the people refusing in some instances r receive the mail. There is now a serious question confronting tho people there. Meats and previsions are very scarce, anJ at one plr.ee flour and rice are selling al $11 per barrel and sack. The Temple Cup Series. WAStlixuTox, Sept. 14.

Iead Cat and Chickens Found at One Tlnce and the neenylng Itody of a llurse at An other Peremptory Orders Ciiven. Town Health OffiVer 11. A. O'llara and Seleotmau Ferrv C. Morris had a rather peculiar experience this morning. Yesterdav complaint was made that a dead horse was lying above ground on the property of' Mr Newton, near the imiiiuT lllll school, .nut also mat l ne premises of Jvnlph 0:esar, a colored man, residing ou the Wmertow u road, near the lriviujr park, were iu a ehookiug condition. Kailv this morning Dr O'llara accom panied by Selectman Morris started for i lie place mentioned in the complaint .ind soon found themselves in front of the residence of Mr Ctpsar. On enter ing the vard the first tiling Mr Morris aw was a large maltose eat apparent iv in good lienlih. but upon investigation it was found to have been dead for several weeks and emitted an odor which almost prot rated the selectman and he yelled for assistance to the doctor. After a little further investigation several chickens were found dead and rotten the rear of the house and these withia pile of old bones and decaying animal and vegetable matter made the visit anything but n pleasant one for the health otlieer and Mr Morris. Caesar was not at home, but his wife in formed the visitors that her husband would put the place iu better shape this afternoon. l'hen the party started for Hunker hill and found things much worse than they had anticipated. The gypsies who left there recently buried a horse under about a foot of earth and the neighboring dogs burrowed alter it, with such success thnt the whole ear- iss was exposed, sending fortli a stench that could be smollod for half a mile distant. Mrs Newton was ordered to see that the horse was re-interred under three or four feet of earth, cither that or she would be prosecuted. lr O'llara also made a fiving trip into South Hrooklyu last night and spent half an hour nosing from one pig pen to another, but saw nothing to find fault with, tilings being about as usiuil. It was reported to-day that several ol the pigs kept by tho residents of this place were dyiug of distemper. GITY COURT CASES. WOMAN FINED BY JUDGE FOR SHOP LIFTING. COWELL Clntrns Thnt She Had No Intention of Steal ing, ltrlngs in a (loud KeroiunioiiUatiou nuil Appeals the Case. A sad and unfortunate case in the on v court this morning was that of Kate Leonard, charged with the theft of u bottle of chow chow from the store of Charles K. Dillon on the corner of F.ast Main street and Fhivnix avenue. Thomas 11. Dillon, lather of the pro-, prietor, a clerk at the store, said that articles had been stolen from the store at various times, aud suspicion rested on this w o mau. Yesterday siu went into the store, accompanied bv another woman, and ho watched them, lie saw the woman take a bottle of chow chow and place it under her cape. Ho went to her and told her to drop it and she did and then wanted to settle for it. Ho rang for the police and had her arrested. Attorney Kennedy de fended iho woman and tirsi introduced a letter of recommendation from Mrs.l. H. Itrotison, -1; North Willow street. The letter read that the accused had lived at her house for two years and .-lie had found her honest and trustworthy. She trusted her whole house to her and said she came well recommended. The woman herself said she lived on liauk street. She only took up the bottle to ask the price of it, when Mr Dillon shouted to her to leave it down. She thought she had broken something. so quickly was she spoken to. She offered to pay whatever damage was done. "Who is that lady that came iu with your" said Judge Cowell. "She is a friend of mine." said the woman. "Who is it?" repeated Judge Cowell. "A friend of mine," again answered the woman. "Tell the judge who it was," said Lawyer Kennedy. "Go sit down." said the judge. "Go sit down." Attorney Kennedy explained that is was the woman's sister who was with her, and she did uot want to bring her into court. The sister was sent for and said she had not seen the affair; she was outside. Judge Cowell lined the accused $5 and costs and an appeal was taken. Contractor James F. Gaffhoy was ar rested by Chief F.gan yesterday for hitching his horse to a shade tree on Leavenworth street, in front of the site by the new court house. It was a viola tion of a city ordinance, but Judge Cowell decided to nolle the case on con dition that Contractor llurlhnrt would box up the trees as he had promised to do.

Extended to the Men of Waterbury by the Tanlist Mission Fathers. At the Sacred Heart church last even ing, l!ev Father Uvau preached to a very large congregation, aud spoke en couragingly to those who might havo strayed from the path of rectitude, ex. honing them not to despair in the mercy' of God, for a return to one's former good habits was always commendable, and the portals of God's church were at all times open to tho repentant siuner. At the early mass this morning Father Smith g.tve a few min utes talk on perserverence and said that people should not think that God's grace had been entirely withdrawn from therft because their petitions were not sn swred immediately.

SELECTMEN BROOKS AND PINNEY AT THE BOTTOM OF IT. The Location of the Foiling Flaee at tha Coming Klertion Seleetmon Morris Be lieves That a Ceutral Tolnt In Eaeh of the New Wards Ought to Be Selected. Selectman Morris is having a hard time trying to arrange the location ot the various voting booths in the coming election. It is the general opinion ol representative democrats and republi cans, now that the city is divided into live wards, that the voting booths should be ceutraliediii each w ard. The select men got together this morning aud tried to decide on the locations. It w9 agreed that the first, and second ward booths should remain as formerly. lu the third the usual place lias been the city hall. Tho ward has been changed terrirorily, and Selectman Mor ris argued for a more central location of the voting booths. Selectman Brooka argued that the hall could be had for nothing and that fact should be consid ered. He was told that the accommoda tion of the voter was also a matter of consideration. He was sustained, hows ever, by Seletnien Finney, and the thirl ward polling place will in all probability remain where it always was. in City hall. There was another argument over the fourth ward. For some years objections have been raised to voting ou the Sco vill street site. Since the women began voting this objection has. been strongly supported ou the ground thnt it was mu a tit place for ladies n go. Selectman Morris has asked that voting booths be erected on I in m square, a more central location. This is also opposed by the republican, selectmen ou the ground that it may be too much extra expense. lor tho tittli ward Selectmen Urooks and l'iunry think that the audi torium is a lit place to vote. Selectman Morris argued that a booth should bo erected near Henedict cVBurnham's, as a more central point in the ward. Again was the matter of expense brought up and it seemed that Select man Brooks, who poses ;:s the financier of the selectman's otVuv. thought that a fev dollars saved to the town was, more to be oousiderc.l than the convenience ol thousands of taxpayers and citizens. Nothing definite has been decided up on, although it is the general opinion that the republican majority of the board w ill try to bring all the voting booths into the center without respect for the large majority of voters. Fy Mon day it is expected tin locatious will be decided upon. AFTER MANY YEARS. The Mora Claim Fui.l To-Iay hy tho SpanKli tiovernment. Washini; ion, s. pt. 14.
