WIND SAVES H FIRE DAMAGE OF $500,000. Sailors Land to Dynamite Houses — Marines Patrol Streets. Halifax. Sept. 1."5.— A fortunate shift of wind saved Halifax from a great conflagration to day, and still the city suffered a loss of 1900,000 from a fire which swept the business part uf the waterfront, and whose progress was only stayed by the dynamiting of a dozen bulMlngs by Bailors from the fleet and soldiers from the garrison, Fhortly after 4 o'clock, when the fire was at Its height, and a fearful southerly gal*. was pushir.g it straight toward th» he;irt of the business centre, the wind suddenly veered to the west and turned the , flames along the wharves and warehouses. ■ the fire j iged in lower Water-eL, prac •yond control, until 7 o'clock to-r.lght, •wo hundred sailors, with torpedo appa ratus ::.•!-: f!-<--.f !-<--.

Mr Ar hiiial.i I - reeled the sailers lr. protecting Imperial erty. and two Tiuniired marines patrolled ?!;* str—»t. The fire consumed six wharves, two coal piers. two hotels, a dozen large warehouses, and a number of retail shops. There is 1200.000 In surance. Ore fireman was fatally Injured by a live wire, while another was badly hurt by tailing slate. A large tree fell, killing Flcrs. Ring, twenty -eight years old. and wounding two other persons. The burred district, which covered about two acres, was one of wooden buildings, three or four etories high, many of them built years ago wh-n Halifax merchants dealt heavily In flsh. The fire started about 3 p. m. in a build ing between Water-st. and the harbor, at the entrance of the wharves of N. & M. Smith. A terrific gaie was blowing from the southeast, and within a few minutes the buildings on both sides of the street, all well saturated with fish oil. were burning fiercely. The fire then extend-d to the French House, a hotel in vTater-et.. and within a few minutes the flame* had enveloped the five f.sh stores of N. & M. Smith, the largest fish dealers la Halifax, who had a stock valued at $150,000. Crowds of people who had rushed down Smith wharf found themst^/es hemmed in with the fire on one side and the harbor on the other, and all bad to be taken off by launches from the warships. By this time the satire rlty had be gun to realize the gravity of the situation. The entire ire department waa at th-- scene, me Dartmouth department had be»*n summoneu, launches filled with marines and sailors wero putting off from the warships Ariadne and Inde fatigable and troops were on the way from the garrison. '■ .. Ai ii :ivO o'clock it looked as though nothing could stay the flames from the main business section of the city and the residential sec tion beyond. Then came the shift of wind. The gale began to veer, until shortly after ■* . lock it was blowing the flames up the harbor front. instead of toward the heart of the city. The flre spread to the Dominion Coal Com par <oal stores on Campbell I**1 ** wharf to the south and worked across Smith's warehouses to the G P. Mitchell Co.s on the north. The Plant Steamship Line pier and stores were in danger and soon the flre was in the Plant stores and office building. There were four firms lr\ the Plant building- M. Neville, lobster packer; the Dominion Pack Company. W. M. Ross. M. P., office and stores, and the Plant office and warehouse. • By this time the government officials had as seated full charge of the situation, for not far ahead was the big ordnance yard, containing thousands of tons of powerful explosives. The district was cleared of spectators by ma rines and troops from the sth Royal Garrison Regiment. A party of sailors, with a company of royal engineers, landed north of the flre. and at S o'clock began blowing up buildings. For ,m hour the city shook with the terrific explosions. More than a dozen buildings, some of them three and four stories high, were levelled, and at 7 o'clock the flre reached the cleared apace, where It stopped. FOOTBALL PLAYEES BECOME BKOKEES.

State Ticket Decided On in Conference Put Through Without Change — Big Roosevelt Demonstration. The Republican State Convention at Saratoga yesterday adjourned after unanimously nominating the ticket named in yesterday's Tribune, and headed by Frank \V. Higgina and M. Linn Hniee for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, respectively. Timothy L. Woodruff withdrew as a candidate for (iovenior just as the mil of delegates was to he railed and after the nominating speeches had heen made. The platform strongly indorses the administrations of President Roosevelt and Governor Odell, and approves the declaration of principles adopted by the Republican National Convention. Then- was a great demonstration for President Roosevelt, the dele gates cheering continuously for ten minute.-,. ' Ist Tr.i.r.r>n*Tn to the nm 1 Saratoga. Sept. -The Republican St*t« Convention to-day named the fallowing ticket: For Governor— FßANK W. HIGGINS, of Cattaraugus. For Lieutenant Governor — M. LiNN BRUCE, of New-York. For Secretary of State — JOHN F. O'BRIEN, of Clinton. For Attorney General — JULILS M. MAYER, of New-York. For Controller— OTTO KELSEY. of Liv ingston. For State Treasurer— JOHN G. WALLEN MEIER, of Erie. For State Engineer and Surveyor — HENRY A. VAN ALSTYNE. of Columbia. For Chief Judge of the Court of Appeale — EDGAR M. CULLEN i Democrat), of Kings. For Associate Judge of trie Court of Appeals —WILLIAM E. WERNER i Republican), of Monroe. It was an open convention that nominated Mr. Hlggins for Governor, and it was his or.iy rival. ex-Lieutenant Governor Woodruff, who at the dramatic moment made the nomina tion unanimous fn a speech which paid higher tribute and more eloquent praiM to the nominee than that of any who had spoken for the candi date. But this action did not come until after a. long series of sensational and dramatic incidents and two speeches actually nominating the Brooklyn leader. When, however, it became clear that the Woodruff cause was irrevocably lost, and that only the Kings County delegation and a handful of the old guard supporting Sen ator Platt would stand up and be counted, the*; the Kings County leader, pledging loyal support to hi« rival, withdrew amid applause which came from his supporters and his opponents alike and In such fashion as to make party har mony certain. As usual, the Republican cohorts were slow In assembling. It was lone after It o'clock when the bulk of the delegates finally entered the con vention hall and, with hearty cheers, welcomed one another. The coming of J. Sloat Passett, the temporary chairman, called forth the first general applause. Senator Platt, who entered on the arm of William A. Smyth, of Owego, was greeted with a demonstration more than usually enthusiastic, Ex-Lieutenant Governor Woodruff was acclaimed by a Kings County tumult, en thusiastic and well sustained, while Governor Odell. on hi* entrance, received a greeting which surpassed all others. Individual delegations with waving banners welcomed their favorites, and an industrious band, together with irre pressible galleries, wrought a stirring scene. THE CONVENTION CALLED TO ORDER. It was nearly noon when J. Sloat Fassett. the temporary chairman, called tin convention to order, and. after dispatching routine businesn. made way for the nomination and election of Senator George R- Malby. of St. Lawren. « County, as permanent chairman. Escorted by two old Republican war horse*. Congressman Sereno K. Payne and Senator John Raines, the chairman went to the platform amid great ap plause and at once proceeded to his speech, ■which is printed In another column. The speech was well received, and when at its climax Sen ator Malby mentioned the name of the Presi dent there was a remarkable demonstration, spontaneous, long sustained and frequently re peated. At the close of. the upeech Senator Malby was about to proceed to the business of the con vention, when the side doors of the hall opened, and. headed by a band and bearing huge ban ner* William Barnes, jr.. and the Albany dele gation entered the hall. Carrying aloft biff pictures of Roosevelt and Fairbanks, the dele gation circled the hall and marched to the gal lery. All the pent-up enthusiasm of the con vention, was turned loose at this moment, wom en waved their handerchlefs. men threw up their hats, and the demonstration continued for ten minutes. .Wham " Chairman MaJh* called- or, the report , FRANK WATLAXO HTCOIVS. (Copyright. 1903. by Plrto Mac Donald.) of the committee on resolutions, John A. Slei cher. of New-York, took the platform and «m;d growing disorder read the brief docu ment, which is printed elsewhere in this Issue. Derplte the disturbance, several planks were heartily cheered, but Mr HleiCUliri voice was Inadequate, and the majority of the convention could not hear him. He was frequently inter rupted by loud cheers and calls for '•Woodruff." Senator Edgar T. Hrackett, of Saratoga, re ported the hide contest, that In the XlXth Ah sembly District of New-York and the report In favor of the Qalgg-GUmaa delegation was unan imously adopted without debate. DUTCHER RESOLUTION ADOPTED. When the chairman called for nominations for Governor Senator Raines, recognized as a steady and long tried legislative warrior, arose In his place and requested the reading of the Dutcher resolution of yesterday. This resolution pro vided that on roUcall each delegate's name should be called separately. Secretary R. L. Fox, in the excitement of the moment, had mis laid his copy of the resolution, and amid laugh ter Senator P.atnes restated It and it was unani mously carried. This deprived the Woodruff supporters of an opportunity for ■ teal vote and the convention proceeded Immediately to bust. ness. Amid loud cheering from the majority of the •legation and silence on the part of the sup porters of ex-Lieutenant Governor Woodruff. Assemblyman Arthur C. Wade placed In nomi nation Lieutenant Governor Frank Wayland Hlgplna. Assemblyman Wade's speech was brief, but frequently interrupted by applause. At the close of this so 1 dress it became evident that the Woodruff faction had finally determined to make a demonstration of strength on the floor of the convention, and William H. Prender gast. the spokesman of tha Kings County dele gation, took the platform amid a storm of ap plause from the galleries and from the Kings County delegation. Mr. Prendergast was in good voice and spoke with great earnestness. When In the midst of his address he leaned over and pointed In the direction of Senator Platt. who sat with the Tioga delegation in the second row. there was an Instant response on the part of the galleries and the Kings County delegation, and the "Old Guard" of the Platt men stood up and cheered lustily; but the vast majority of the dele- Kates sat silent. It was clear that the effort was being made to stampede the convention, and It was equally clear that the attempt was a failure. BROOKLYN LEADER CHEERED. When the speaker finally named the Brooklyn leader all hi* supporters stood up, but that demonstration, carried on by not more than two hundred delegates, finally disclosed the hopeless ness Of the Woodruff tight. When quiet had been restored W. W. Nlles. of The Bronx, took the platform to second the nomination of Lieu tenant Governor Hlggins. By this time the shouting in the gallery and the interruption of the Kings County delegates, who kept shouting; • We want Woodruff." "Woodruff and win." and various other slogans, made it almost impossible to hear the speaker ten feet from the platform. The close of this address was the signal for another outburst of cheers for the Brooklyn can didate from the galleries and the seats of the Kings County delegation. Before this had ended Assemblyman James T. Rogers, of Broome County, majority leader in the Assembly, took the platform to second Mr. Woodruffs nomina tion. The Woodruff supporters, misunderstand ing the speaker's purpose, interrupted him again and again with Woodruff shouts. Mr. Rogers raised a laugh by telling a story of a green streetcar conductor who on his first trip was rebuked by the inspector for having rung- up only seven fares when he had eight passengers. Mr. Rogers said: '*; ; "The green conductor, turning to the passen gers, said in a rich brogue: 'Wan uv yes has gotter to git off. 1 " Assemblyman Rogers pnld .mother tribute to Senator Platt. which evoked much applause, and he elicited more by the declaration that he neither believed nor sympathized with the- un £oniiaue<l oa ««cMoa p«>s ~*^**x OTTO KEZJSET. jn.rrrs matter. THE PRESIDENT PLEASED Has a High Regard for Mr. Hig gins — Took No Part in Contest. tBT TELEGRAPH TO THE nUMJIB.I Oyster Bay, N. T.. Sept. President Rooae relt this evening expressed himself as highly pleased with the nomination of Frank W. His gins for Governor by the Saratoga convention. The President has known Mr. Hissins for a number of years, and hi convinced that he will make a strong candidate before the people and a level he.i led, courageous executive. The Presi dent received the -..s of the nomination by bulletin from the convention hall, probably be fore the cheers of the delegates ha! subsided. The President has followed the proceedinss of the convention with deep interest, but has re frained from takln< part in them, even by sug gestion. Throughout the campaign prelim inary to the convention he declined to be drawn ; into the contest, either by word or by action, maintaining that the ticket must be ma by the delegates to the convention. While he re fused to take part In any way, for or against any candidate, he expressed himself this even- Ing as greatly phased over the result. Mr. Higglns was chairman of the Finance Committee of the State Senate while Mr. Roosevelt was Governor. Their relations, naturally, were close. Mr. Roosevelt relying on him in many ways. Throughout their association the President grew to have a steadily increasing respect for Mr. Hlggins's character and aMllty. In every effort he made for good government, and es pecially in the struggle which resulted in the enactment of the Franchise Tax law, the Presi dent, while Governor, found that Mr. Hl^glr.s. by reason of his courage, goad sense and high standard of personal Integrity, could be counted on to rentier the most efficient service. In last night's windstorm the great Republican banner swung across Amirey-ave.. opposite the bank, was pa ttalir blown away. In the centre . of the b*r.n-r was a colossal American eagla clutching In bis talons the bunch of arrows and the ribbon lettered "X Plutibus Unum."

Th.» first child of the King and Qu.»en. a gtri, Yolamle. wait born am June 1. 1301. The second. also a daughter. M.i';iM,i. was bom on November 19. 1901. Th« birth of a sen may be expected to in crease greatly the popularity of Queen Helena with the. Italians. The Marquise de Fbntenoy, writing in The Trib une on September 14 about Italy's future King, said: Que«n Helena* baby, whose advent Is look for thes* days, will, it is said, if ■ boy. receive the title of IVlnce of Piedmont, borne by King Humbert while Crown Prince. Both Kins and Qtieen are stated to have abandoned tNMr former intention of Inventing the child with the title of Prlr.ce of Rome, and it is partly with -i view of avoiding any pretext for endowing him with this 111 omened dig nity that arrangements have bei«n mads for the In fant's birth to take plaoe at Rsjccoalgt rather than in the Kternal City. It Is said that King Victor Emmanuel has come to the conclusion that to style his son and hfir Prince of Rome would be something aki tt> tempt ing fate. For. in . the first place, such a dignity would handicap the" Infant from the very outset of Its existence wttlv the antagonism or the Roman Cithollc Church, since the title i:i itself would con stitute a perpetual reminder of what la regarded by the Papacy as an ail of sacrilegious uy<urpatli>n. and tend to Interfere with these negotiations mac art* now in progress with a view to a modus vi vendl between rnurch and state Then. too. the title would evoke memories of the 111 fated Klr.s «•? Rome son of the first Napoleon and of his -Austrian consort, the Empress Marie Louisa, Th« present King himself bore ihe title of Prince of Naples until his accession to the throne. But it was not a popular title. Just by reason of its betes in a measure usurped, since it served to call atten tion to the fact that the late King Victor Emman uel had taken advantage bt the revolutionary move ment of Garibaldi against the Bourbon King of Naples to annex the latter's dominions to his own. Prince of Piedmont Is assuredly the moat appro print* tltlo for the hop* of the House of Savoy. For Piedmont is. so to speak, the cradlo of its race. PRISONERS FOR 20 YEARS.

It was learned that the urgent need of saving Ir.iliana with the use of money took Chairman Tag^art west. a goH Democnt, told -upport Roosevelt in pref» cer. SHEEHAN PISHED KNIFE. He Wm Determined to Get Rid of Thomas Taggart. Ex-Julgv? Parker. Senator Gorman. Henry O. Davis, William F. Sheehan and Thomas F". Ryan, of the Metropolitan Street Railway Com pany, ar a three-hour conferer.ee yesterday la Mr. Parker'3 suite at the Hotel Astor decided practically to supersede Thomas Taggart, chair man o? the national committee, with Senator Arthur P. German, of Maryland. The action was taken without the knowleds? of Chairman Taggrart. who left town on Wednes day ni^ht to comult the managers of the Stats campaigns in Indiana and Illinois. It is the intention of the Parker-Sheehan'- Ryan men to ke*»p Taggart ia the West. If pos sible. His three personal friends^ ex-Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas; Charles A. Wash, of lowa, former secretary of ■.•» national com mittee, and J. G. Johnson, d Kansas, a Bryan- Hearst man— will be asked to keep away from the national commtttee headquarters. They are. suspected of coolness toward the Parker can vass. li is not known that ex-Senator HiU took A hand in the revolution yesterday. Mr. Hill did not visit national headquarters, and he dM not c*U! oa Mr. Parker. It is takes for granted that h-? knew of the plans of Mr. Parker and his friends, as he spent a day a: Esopus the early part of the \vet-k. One of the remarkable features of this moat re* markable development at national headquarters was that it waa not until It became certain that Chairman Tag^art would go to Indianapolis that Mr. Parker consented to come to New- Tors. When the newspapers on "Wednesday said that Mr. Parker would come to New- York to consult the leaders and possibly afterward in like sev eral campaign speeches some of the Parker men got frightened and denied that Mr. Parker was) comings Urer Woodson. secretary of teh na tional committee, culled up Mr. Parker on the) telephone and learned that the visit was con templated, and that it would be yesterday. Bb> so announced it. To make sure that Mi personal Interests would be protected. Chairman Taggart recently, with out consulting William F. Sheehan. chairman of the executive committee, appointed Messrs. Jones. Walsh and Johnson to the staff at head quarters, with - keas men on guard he felt as 12 h* could risk a trip to Indiana, which he has) promised to carry for Parker and Davis. The> stories of friction between Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Tassart reachjd Indiana, and the papers there wanted to know about it. Mr. Sheehan unheet tatir.gly declared that all was harmonious he» twren himself ■i Mr. Ta^sart. It Is a fact. known to every employ© at headquarters, that the relations between the chairman and the) ea ecuttve chairman are strained to the breaking point, and th.it Mr. Sheehan has been after the) scalp of Ism Hoosier hotel keeper for the last two weeks. Now he's got It. It was announced at the Hotel Axtor last nsjM by one of the conferees at the meeting where Mr. Taggart was "done to death." that after the State convention had named the State ticket next week, the* campaign in this State wwaaft be opened with great energy, and that thereafter there would be- nn apathy. There is little doubt that the Parker managers regard the tight as lost. All the indications) are that al! fhe funds that the national committee' can raise from hia time forward will be spent to carry this State against Roosevelt and Fair hanks, an.! Hlsgins and Bruce. If the Parker men enn say? •■■.*- York out of the wreck, they fl^nre that they can prevent the Bryan and Hearst men from getting control of the national committee and frcm controlling the next na tional convention.
