Owing to the dilatoriness of City Coun cils to act on an ordinance prodding for an extensions of the leac of the State Tenslbles' Armory building at Broad ami Callow hill streets, that mllitaty otganlza tlon will be compelled Immediately to vacate and deliver up possession to tin city. The lease of the armory building empire ' on March 1 last, and the city declined t renew It, for the reason, according t Emanuel Furth, who represents the Fi i cibe!, that the establishment of tin Municipal Court made It necessary for tl city to find quarters outside of "the Citv Hall for some of its- departments In oid-r to make room for the new court Alter Judgment had been entered on tht kase, Mr Furth stayed Immediate ejection by taking a rule to show cnu- wh the judgment should not be opened Meantime a bill was Introduced in tin Joint Committee of Councils on City Property providing for an extension of the original lease t the Stat" Fencibl. s foi JO ears longer. This was favorabl repo'ted from committee, but no action was taken by Councils as a body on the pi posed ordinance. Mr. Furth explained to Court of Com mon Pleas No. 1 today t'lat Director Porter had agreed that no further steps would bo taken by tho city to get pos S' "Slon of the armory building until Coun cil" had acted on the proposed ordinance Mr. Furth added that the appropriation of HOO.oro by the city from the recentl.v authorised loan to provide new quarters for the .Municipal Court would further relievo the necessity for ousting the Fen clble, and he therefore appealed to the equity side of the court to open the Judg ment entered on the lease. Assistant City Solicitor Edgar "W. Lank argued that Director Porter had no au thority to act for the city In such a matter and the Law Department was laying itself open to criticism by reason of tho delay in getting possession of tho armory. Tho court said that Councils was tho only authority for leasing city propei ties anil the rule to open judgment was discharged Jsk I" REFUGEES ABOARD LINER DOMfflON TELL TROUBLES Passengerswho arrived in port on the American liner Dominion today.

Tho liner arrived after an uneventful voyage, on which no obstacles were encountered, "not even a German cruiser," as Captain W. E. Ingham put It. But If tho voyage of the ship was un eventful the experiences encountered by many of the passengers on the continent were different. Many of tho passengers, and particularly the women, havo ex periences of all soi ts to relate. A graphic story of the occupation of Brussels by the German forces was told by Miss Elizabeth Doerr, of this city, who left Brussels a day after the arrival of tho German army there. "I shall never forgot tho sight,"' said Miss Doerr. "One million men, like a reat tolling cloud, passed through the city. It took them three days and three nights to do It, and when they got through Brussels was foiaged. There waa hardly a bit of food In the city. Not a dron, of milk could bo gotten. All the food stares and warehouses were emptied by the Geimnns and the palaco and public houses were occupied by tho now Ger man garrison left behind by the main army. "It was on AiiRUst 20 caily In the morn InK when wo received orders that all Hags but tho German nml the Ameilcan flags must be removed from sight. A shott time after the receipt of this order the first German olllccr, lldlns on a bicycle, entered the city. Wo saw him, for, en couraged by the report from the American legation that tho city would bo sur rendered without resistance, we took u chance and went out for a promenade. Behind the otllcor camo 40 cavalry men with rifles ready to shoot If any sign of sniping should nppar. And then came the real sight. One million men, one huge, oneness cloud of humanity entered tho city It seems strange, but all bf them looked tired. Mans of them ccemed to he do7lng on their horses, and eveiy now and then, roused by some noise and sound, would hiiriledly open the.li eyes mid loo.c about them. PRAISE FOR IlttAND WHITLOCK. Gient credit Is due to Brand Whttlnclt. tho Ameilcan Minister to Belfjlum. 1 don't know what the Americans In Brussels would have done without hia valuable aid, nut that Is not nil. The fact that Brussels was saved from the fate of Louvaln Is duo directly to the efforts of Mr. Whitlock. On the eve of tho arrival of tho German army n. meeting, at which tho el'y authorities and Mr. Whitlock wero piescnt, was held In tho City Hall. It was at first suggested that the Bel glans defend the city to the vciy last man. but Mr. Whitlock pi availed upon the civil and military authorities to euncii dcr the illy, sasing that It would bo ueo Ipss to niuKe any resistance since it would bo overcome and would emly re sult in great loss of life and property. "I am glad to bay." continued Miss Doerr, "that all tho art treasures ot Brussels -hace leen saved from seizure by the Germans, because they had all seen previously lomoved to England." Miss Doerr said that utter leaving Buis hcls It took her 12 hours lu gt to Ostend, whereas the trip should pot takt more than two hours. She left Philadelphia In July and went to Brussels to complete & course In music. PBALSES GERMAN METHODS. Great admiration for the efficiency of Herman mobilization was expressed by Captain Frank P. Avery, II. fi. A. re tired, who arrived from Vienna and Munich. Captain Avery, who resides In Wash ington, and Is a, veteran of the Spanish American war. seiid that the speed, effi ciency and marelou8 pieCUlon of the German mobilization was the admiration of every man who knew anything about military science. "The people In Vienna and tn Munich and all Aus.til.in and Ger man towns we passed aro simp!) crazy for war The patrotlo frenzy that Has been aroused among the population is nothing sort of religious enthusiasm In Vienna hundreds of women were clamor ing to 50 to -icr and wanted to join the astox," ROTTEN HOSE BALKS FIREMEN IN FIGHT AT $50,000 BLAZE Could Not Carry HigH Pressure Streams to Burn ing Plant of E. J. Spangler & Co. Prediction Up held. Itotten lioso, which hurst when nltacheij to the lilgh-prcssuro nro main, a thing predicted recently by Director of Publla Safety Porter, held up firemen early thla mornins at a $50,000 flro In tho onvelopt and paper plant of E. J, Spangler & Co. 1237 to 1219 North Howard street. A girl who discovered tho blozo fainted after rouslnpr neighbors, and a policeman, whose homo is across tho street from the burned bulldlnir, ran eight blocks In hlj bare foot to turn In two nlnrms. Tho bursting hoso this morning' Is the second experience of that kind firemen havo had In less than 48 hours. Lata Saturday afternoon throo separate lines of hoso burst while firemen wore flahtlno. a big blaze nt the Itoosch packing plant, accona ana Brown streets, and In one lnstanco spectators wore drenched. GIRL DISCOVERS FLAMES. The flro this morning was discovered few minutes after 4 o'clock by Miss Irene Ynle, 1233 Howard street, two doors from the burning building. Sho was aroused by tho crackling of flames and when she. saw tho blaze sho screamed "lire" and then fell back In her room In a faint Her mother, Mrs. May Ynle, aroused neighbors, including roliccman Bender, of tho Front and Master streets Btatlon. Hurrying out to send In an alarm, Ben dcr fell down stairs, but was not hurt. The bluccoat, In his pajamas and without shoes or stockings, ran two blocks to GIrnrd avenue and sent In nn alarm. When he returned the envelope plant was blazing; so fiercely that ho ran back again and turned In a second alarm. By the tlmo policemen and firemen arrived the threo floors of the plant were nblazo and the flames wero threat ening adjoining dwellings. The family of James Schroiner, 1235 Howard street, had persistently refused to heed th calls of neighbors to flee to the street Policemen Cooper and Casper finally ran Into tho house and carried out three children, after which the parents fol lowed. Several firemen were partially over come by tho thick smoke, but after belnj treated by ambulance surgeons from threo hospitals who camo to the scene they returned to work. No one was In jured. HAD TO TURN WATER OFF. The hose that burst had been run up n small alley from a high-pressure pluj near Howard and Thompson streets. Firemen had been using It to direct a strong stream of water on the lear of the burning building. They had to turn off thft water and run a line of new hose. This Is tho second time the Spangler plunt has been burned down. The first was about threo years ago and nn equal amount of damage was done at that time. It was estimated today that the loss would rnngo from ?5O,0OO to J73.000. So f.u tho origin of tho blaze lias not been determined. Firemen learned that tho quick spread of the l!amcs whs due to the fact that It started somewhero near the elevator shaft. This acted as a Hue by leading the flro to the upper (loots within a few minutes after Its statt. Only quick work by the firemen In run ning new linos of hoso Saturday night prevented tho flro nt tho Itoesh plant from spreading through the neighborhood, Re cently Director Porter eleclared that he would not follow tho suggestions of th National Board of Fire Underwriters to test all hose, because ho would rather loso the hoso In service than in tests. Councils will not provide for new hose that Is badly needed. The Director agreed with the file underwriters, who said -IJ per cent, of the hoso being used la this city Is defective. Ho wont further and said most of It Is rotten. Intimating that to test it would be to invite a repltetion of the Baltimore fire In this cltj, THE WEATHER j Official Forecast WASHINGTON, Sept. 2t For eastern Pennsylvania and New Jew f-ey: Fair tonight and Tuesdaj, with frost In exposed places tonight, moderate, northwest winds.
