WOMEN OPPOSE OPENING. CANVASS BY ABRAHAM BRIBER IN XXIST RESULTS IN 2*2 FOR. 164 AGAINST CLOSED SUNDAY. Abraham Cruber. Republican leader of the XXlst Assembly District, says that a large majority of the wives and mothers of the XXlst district are opposed to the proposed Sunday opening of saloons. He is having made a house to house canvass, and each woman is asked whether she is in favor of an open or closed saloon on Sunday. In only one election district thus far do those who favor an open saloon outnumber those who are in favor of having the saloons closed. That district contains the locally famous 'Battle Row," and is generally regarded ac the most "free and easy" locality in the As sembly district. It is between One-hundredth and One-hundre sts.. «nd the popula tion is almost entirely made i:p of those who ar» supposed to favor an "open" Sunday. Yet la this district, which Mr. anther's men canvassed i first, there are 192 women opposed to "•';>■■:.' Sunday saloons as against 233 ""ho favor them, while 113 of the vo.nen interrogated declined to answer the question, or were indifferent. Th«: canvass of this particular election district ws* made by a man who is in favor of an "open"' Sunday saloon and Mr. Gruber declared last night that if any one got the benefit of th" doubtful votes it was the "open" side. Continu ing, Mr. Gruber said. It has been mv theory right along that th« women, by force of circumstances, are more vitally concerned about this proposition to open the sa loons on Sunday than .>!• tn<* mm. Any practice that would trnd to make money scarcer In the home Vitally affects the wives, mothf-rs and sweethearts of this city.

LIKELY TO HAVE AN* UNFAVORABLE EF FECT ON THE POLITICAL, SITUA TION IN THE ISLAND. [BT TELKGIUPH TO THE TRIBUNE] Washington. Feb. 10.— It is beginning to be feared in Washington that the failure of Con gress promptly to respond to the urgent de mands for commercial relief to Cuba may have an unfavorable &nd discouraging effect on po litical affairs in the island. As is well known. Cuba is now on the eve of undergoing a radical political transformation. This phase of the sit uation is causing some uneasiness in the Sen ate and the War Department. Just two weeks from to-day, or «n February 24. the electors recently chosen by popular vote will meet in Havana to ratify the election of General Tomas Estrada I'nlma as the first President of the republic. They will also elect at the same time the Vice President and the Senate. This action Should mark the beginning: of the end of Amer ican control of the government and occupancy of the Island of Cuba. Whether It will in fart is a question which is being asked with some anxiety. When the Cuban electors two weeks from to day have chosen their executive and completed the action of their Congress— the House having: been elected last month— it will be the duty of the present military governor of Cuba, General "Wood, to proclaim the ne" government and con vene the Congress. The first Monday in April will be th- day set for th«» convening of th» Congress. TREATY WITH CUBA TO BE FRAMED. The first duty of the Congress will be to ratify a treaty with th** United States, embodying in permanent form the stipulations of the Platt amendment. An ordinance of the new Cuban constitution provides for the making of the treaty, but it will have to be ratified by th» Cuban Senate before the deal is effectually closed. That treaty will embody the following agreements: That Cuba shall never enter into n treaty with a foreign nation which will impair b.-i Inde 11.1 1. nd< • Thai no debt or obligation shall b P assumed which the revenu a of th< Island will be Inade quate to liquidate That Cuba shall give consent for the United to intervene to preserve the independence <.f the Island. That ih. acts of the temporary military gov ernmenl shall be ratified. That existing sanitary plans shall b* carried out is far as possible. That the title to the Isle of Pines shall h« de termined by a future treaty. Thai tt in government °f Cuba shall sal] or to th- % United states lands necessary for 1 oa ling 01 :ia\ al stations. The uneasiness which is felt in Washington over the outlook for the future rests on the pos sibility of friction arising out of the desperate industrial and economic situation threatened in th. island. It has been said that the prospect is very alarming in that respect, and many well informed people here fear that it will react un favorably on the political negotiations. MIGHT FORCE ANNEXATION. It is the earnest desire of every man in Con gross who has been in any way connected with the dramatic series of events designed for Cuba's enfranchisement to put the Cubans in possession of their own at the earliest moment possible. They would regard it as a national calamity, a disparagement of the national honor, if political freedom should be given to Cubans and at the same time a commercial situation precipitated upon them which would render that freedom worthless and virtually force annexation as an alternative to Industrial ruin. It is realized that when the Cuban executive governments created, as It will be within two weeks, the industrial situation will come nearer the crisis. The desperate condition of affairs will be made more apparent., and when the Congress begins Its deliberations no one can foresee the extent to which the discussion and the criticism of the policy of the United states might proceed. Members of Congress think the ultimate an nexation of Cuba by the United Stales is in evitable. But almost without exception they want that day postponed to the uttermost, and they want Cuba finally to come of her own free will and accord, and not driven by despair, if she comes at all. These men, therefore, are naturally anxious that everything possible should be done to launch the new republic promptly on a career of political freedom and commercial prosperity, to prove the assertions of disinterestedness with which the United States went into the war with Spain. With the beginning of Cuban independence only two weeks off there was to-day no move by Congress in the direction of granting the industrial relief so imperatively requested for th" Cubans. So far as an intimation of action from the Ways and Means Committee Is con cerned the Sphynx is a chatterbox in comparison with that body. A deep, dense silence is main tained by the members upon the question of probable practical legislation. At the same time there is still excellent reason to believe that the Ways and Means Committee will report a bill for tariff, concessions to Cuba within a few weeks. , A DOLLAR AX HOUR "»4 dollar? tikes you New- York to Niagara Falls in &>« hours by the New- York Central.— THE HAMILTON CLUB PATERSON SUFFERERS BRAVE.

DESOLATE SCENES IN THE SORELY STRICKEN CITY. |!>T rff"" M THE TrißlNT.] Paterson. Feb. 10.— The sun this morning shone brightly on a scene of desolation such as never before was witnessed in Paterson and seldom known in other cities. The business portion of the city, practically, lay in ruins; a residence section, marked chiefly by the homes of workers In moderate circumstances, was in ashes, and a few ragged columns of public buildings, banks and churches stood like mournful sentinels over a city's grave It was difficult for even old residents to point out places where former buildings were. The destruction was so complete that landmarks were indistinguishable, and it was only by glimpses of buildings still standing that a sense of location could be obtained. Not even Peterson's inhabitants fully recog nize the extent of the calamity which has come upon them. There were no smiles on the faces of the property owners allowed within the area guarded by militia and police, but there was a general disposition to accept philosophically the situation. "Don't express sympathy for me." said one man "Think of those who have lost more than I, and, indeed, that seemed to be the general sentiment among those who suf fered comparatively minor losses. SMALL DEALERS SUFFER MOST. Those who will most heavily feel the disaster are the men whose stock was small. The larger firms were better insured, and have a greater capital upon which to draw in order to renew their business. "There is where my store stood." a man remarked, pointing out a pile of bricks to a Tribune reporter. "No insurance; nothing left." "Come and see my safe," said another, leading the way across the street. That's mme — the third one away from us in the heap." "Did it have anything in it?" asked a bystander. "All that I have in the world," was the reply. Four circumstances in this fire were remark able—its' peculiar movements, the lack of any loss of life, the manner in which certain build ings withstood the ■aSMS and the absence of disorder. The first flames appeared in the . ar stable*, m Broadway, according to an eyewitness. '1 ne next blaze broke out in the uteeple of the First Baptist Church, at Washington and Van Hou ten sts.. several hundred yards distant frorr "he original fire. Sweeping backward and forward, as the wind, blowing almost a gale, veered, the embers carried away almost the entire busi ness section of the town, and ran down Market st.. on both sides, leaving the Public Library a smoking mass of ""bricks, until they reached the Market Street Methodist Church, which was left unscathed. Flames from that p.nnt jumped across the Krie Railroad line to a point several hundred yards distant, and in a few hours a section of the city about thr>e blocks wide and four de*p was in ashes. Not a beam was left in these structures, which consisted almost entirely of frame houses. Holes in the ground sufficiently describe this tract. Many Inhabitants with difficulty to-day descried the place where their former homes stood. Residents in the upper section of the where houses are almost exclusively bv'!r of wood, were greatly alarmed when it seemed that the fire was about to spread in that direction- Silver and other valuables were packed, and preparations were made hastily to homes. The old graveyard at Carroll and Market sts.. a burying ground strongly condemned at one time for its methods of burial, proved at last a valuable factor in say- Ips q large part of the city. The wind again shifted, blowing the embers across this oven PRICE THREE CENTS. space, and aft«r the complete destrn Joseph's Roman Cathotk Clmrek th» (!%m^ wen extinguished TINES CLOSELY GUARDED Militia, firemen and police deserve thanks Pn the valuable assistance given. One could net under any circumstances gain admission to th* fire lines yesterday, unless one had either a pas?, countersigned, or a badge which entitled one t<> cross the fire lines. Only three arrests wer* made yesterday. At almost every corner within the banking district a man without a badges prominently displayed was stopped and mads t^» show reasons for his presence, and unless an adequate explanation could be given he wa3 promptly dismissed at the point of a bayonet. The Inference that there was a ball cartridge In the Springfield did n^t lessen his haste. The loss perhaps most deeply felt by men In the business section was that of the Hamilton Club. This was a fine building at Ellison ani Church sts., and its members comprised th most prominent men in the city. Everything which could be done for the eSJp. fort of those without homes was made possible by the work of the officials and by public spirit ed citizens. Those who desired could sleep in churches, the armory or in the Paterson Gen eral Hospital, but few took advantage of th* offers. Private houses were open to them, and in these most of the families spent the night, though probably not in sleep. The quarters of the banks destroyed by fir have been transferred, and business is beine done. No ideas were entertained that any diffi culty in recovering all the securities and other papers of the institution? would be experienced. A story of an attempt of looters to break in*** the vaults of the First National Bank was with out foundation. There will be some delay re garding loans, but no serious inconvenience, is expected. One of the odd sights of the day was that of the assets available of the Paterson National Bank being carried through the streets under a military escort. Paterson needs no assistance. Grateful as th» city is for offers of aid. there seems to be a gen eral feeling that there is work to be done, and that the citizens are ready to do it. Mayor Hinohllffe'si answer to Mayor Low. who prof fered the help of New-York City, expresses th* view of most of the men whose losses are con siderable. LOSS CHIEFLY IN STOCK. The actual value of the buildings burned IS) small in comparison with th^ value of the land on which they stand. Most of them would soon have been rebuilt out of necessity. The lojw falls, therefore chiefly on Urn stack, and It Is believed by most business men that Paterson wIH not only recover from its severe, depres sion, but gain in trade development by. reason of what at present seems to be the most s»no»:* calamity which has befallen the city. Though the estimate of a loss of SlonOu.GuO still seems to be a conservative figure, citizens are not dis couraged, and the work of rebuilding the ruined territory is expected at once to begin.
