With all the kiliing of lhe Chinese not. a foreigner is known to have suffered n the hands of the soldiers, not even those who protested against the murder of the Innocents, china apparently had learned her leseon in the days of the Boxers.

Hi (HILAR BLOW A BVILDINB, Explosion and l ire lestro Contractor's llansar Hauliers Miss smhhi A building in lhe Bronx in which a lot of the plans for the new l atskill water supply conduit are kept was blown up with dynamite last night. Just at mid night Henry Jette a watchman employed by lhe Mason Hangar Construction Com pany, which has contracts for much of the .-I id work and is sinking seven shafts in I l.e Bronx, waa blown off his feet liy a terrific aaploaiUu. A bomb had Issen set off in the com liany's office I, sated at Van Cortlandi avenue and '.Mist street The shis-k burst open huge seams in the sides of the build ing and when .lette got to hi feet the office was in flamee. The office is a temporary structure used as a headquarters for ti e engineers in charge of the work in Tl e Bronx. It is about la feet square and is a one storied affair The flames, which spread so rapidly that it seemed as if the entire inside of the building had caught on lire at once, quickly bit the roof off. and by the time Jette got the liretnen there tin re was no chance to save it. The firemen devoted thir energies to keeping O'Coimell's Hotel, across the sir.s.t, free from danger, A fairly s'iff w ind was blowing the flumes at the hotel, and golf h .use next to it These buildings .ire also of wood and were only saved by 'he hardest kind of work Although the original blaze was Isad there was not enough material for it to feed mi to keen it going long, and ten minutaa after tlie Bremen k"1 there the o films hail burned lo the groftnd. In the office the firm kepi a safe In it was 6,OO0 in cash, the chief part of to-day's payroll, and while the safe was found unopened the .lice say that the exploeion and consequent tire were caused hv the attempts of some gang of safe blowers to get at the money. All the plans and peoifloet ions and blue prints for the company's work in The Bronx were also kept fn the safe, and if they had been lost il would have cost the Mason Hangar firm thousands of dollars to have Idem replaced. Several small tool sheds near the office were blown into pieies hv lhe force of the explosion, and an expansive compressed air plant which the company has been pulling in nearby at great expense was pu' out of business. l..lii headquarters in The Bronx was notified ami a dozen detectives were sent currying lo the spot It didn't take them long to decide that the money in the safe was what was lieing looked for. and they are now working on the theorv thai the explosion came from dynamite lgamintly handled by a gang of safe blowers. s ii I e II E BOBS AT WB 1 1 Es I.

Ornartment Men Who Arc siiiipoeil to j Iteporl on Violation and Fire xppll anrrs Neglect Their Unties. He Myal Hint of I i .mil In Itrlnspeetlons. Commissioner of Accounts Fosilick sent a re poli yesterday lo Mayor fifty-1 nor in which he severely criticised! the work of the Bureau of Violations and Fire Appliances This bureau is made up of the chief of the Kuo De partment and sixteen captains, lieu tenants and Bremen, who are supposed to see thai the tire laws in public build ings anil factories are observed Mr. Koediok told the Mayor tint tin. work of the bureau has been Inc impotent and lax." He adds that "false and mis leading statements have been made con cerning Fue Department requirements in certain theatres," and further thnt due "to lack of Intelligent direction the work of lhe detailed tlreinen at theatres is of no practical service." The charge is made by Mr I osdick that violations of the Building Code have Issen permitted in theatres and factory build ings constructed since the enactment of the new oode and thai "many dangerous Conditions exist in theatres and manu facturing buildings, which even under the old law could have been remedied by ' the bureau's forces Commissioner Fosilick 's men gave most of their attention to the theatres, The Inspectors found that there were viola tions ill the eighty-live theatres in Man hattan and The Bronx, The report says Some 'if Hie theatres we visited uere: found to have Interior exit atalrways of woisl in Violation of lhe code. Ill some the' exit stalrwsyi were oW and dilapidated, In one the exits m the gallery led to a peeked roof down winch ii was necessary to slide , to the fire SScape; in seeral the exits were so OOnfUSed that S stranger could Oinl his way out only with difficulty; in a number the hose and extinguishers were found hidden and Inaooesslbls behind masses . r cilery in several others piles of rubbish ' i been allowed t Ileet under the stago i and in the scene docks hegardtng tho testing nf extinguishers one Inspector admitted thaton the average) he tested irhaps two extinguishers In six ' months, while another inspector stated that ha tested extinguishers when they looked as though Ihey were old and dusty. There Is no systematic method of testing hose, and as a result many cases of do- faclive hose are discovered al the annual Inspections How long these imperfections have existed there is no means of ascer taining. In general It appears that the testing of theatre fire appliances by the bureau's Inspectors has been entirely per funt tory. The accusation is made by Mr. Fosdick that in the case of at least len theatres they obtained renewala of their licenses by false reports made by the uispectora of the ''iinn n violations. It was exj.l uneil by Mr. Fosdick that these in- ; Hpcctors in the month of Apt, I of every year visit the theatres, and it is upon 'he recommenilations they make that the i licenses are cither reissued or n-fused. Mr Fosdick'a report goes on: In the annual Inspection of April. 1010. ' ten theatres were reported by the bureau's inspectors as lacking the various Ore sp- pllanoss required hv the building oode, auch as sprinkler stems. (Ire pails. Ac I pon the basis of the Inspectors' memoranda reisirt were prepared for the Kirp Com missioner setting forth the fart that the requirements of the law had not been com plied with It appears that shortly alter the preparation of the first reports a second series of reports on the ten theatres was prepared in which it was stated thai a re inspection had been made and thai the requirements were found to have been com piled with As a result of these reports the ten theatres in question secured their licenses for the season of iiuu-n n de veloped from our investigation that the reins paction referred to m the second re ports had not been made nor had lhe ap pliances railed fir by the building cods been Installed. Similarly the report slates that the In spections by the men of Fosdick 's depart ment show that on a test of seventy eight manufacturing buildings si xty-llve of them were found to l violating the lire and building laws. Mr. Fosdick makes these reoommeiulaiions: Dlreoi accountability should be estab- I hshed between the commanding officers of1 each company and the bureau Each company officer should t held strictly responsible lor the enforcement of the law in his district in regard lo auxiliary tire sp pllanoss His recommendations should be forwarded to the bureau through its chief and acted upon Immediately. the bureau should al ones establish standards of tire department requirements in every class of buildings under lis .uiris- diction. a schedule of such requirements all'l their SPOOlAc lis aliens should he posted III a conspicuous place In all lufl buildings, theatres, moving picture shows, amusement places, mercantile buildings, Ac Definite and positive information would thereby be furnished the owner or lessee of the build ing and a standard established for the fire men for exact inspection Fire Commissioner Johnson made this statement last night: 'this report was made upon the special request of Commissioner Waldo prior to my Incumbency and severing a period when structural defects were in the juris diction of the bureau nf buildings 1 have ' abolished the bureau of violations Jt Is now merged with the bureau of firs pro-: ventton under Deputy Chief Ouerln.

The income of which the incorporators will have the dis position is H.2i0.noi) a year. Tho gift, was announced at a meeting of lhe incorporators held yes! onlay after noon in Mr. Carnegie's homo at Ninety llrst street and Kiflh avenue. The incor porators are Mr. Caniegie, Blihtl Moot, William N. Krew, Henry S. Priohett, Ilolsirt S. Woislward. Charles L. Taylor, James Bertram and Robert A. Franks.

The Carnegie Corporation has nothing to do with tho previously organised in stitution bearing the name of the iron meeter ezoepl as its trusties feel th-it the purposes of tho corporation will Ih subeerved by aiding one or auother of these institutions. According to the figures given in lhe biographical books Mr. Carnegie will lo 7fl years old on the twenly-hflh of the present month. As those associated with him in the present benefaction under stand Mr. Carnegie's motives, the man who has given so many millions to edu cational projects and other causes which he believed deserved his assistance is (lesirOUS of relieving himself of the re sponsibility of giving of all the thousand nnd one details incident upon an invest i gation of the various needs and oppor tunities attracting the attention of the philanthropist; and most of all is desirotui that lhe work which he has been doing in these directions shall go on indcsMident of his age and health. In amount the present gift ranks among the largest donations made at one time even in the present age of large giving. Mr. Hockefeller gave t32,non,nilO at onetime to his general education board, on Febru ary 7. 1807. The total of his gifts to that) fund is said to be about 8S3.noo.Ooi).
