Upper fart Falte With Big Crash-Notes orurarlro. One of the worst area that this city haa experienced for years broke out shortly after 11 o'olook last evening. Those who were on the street in the vicinity of the corner of Chapel and State street hfard a large number of cannon oraokors exploded in rapid suc cession. And then in a moment's time one of the wildest kind of displays of firework burst out of the front of the City Market. Roman candle, sky rockets, red fire, blue Ore and green fire, in an Intangible mass of confusion shot, flamed and whizzed In every di rection. Sky rockets traveled up Chapel street with a rapidity which cleared the crowd away quioker than the most ex pert police squad oould have done. Tho sides of the surrounding buildings were treated to a fusilade suoh as only the fire fiend can create. In much less time than It take to tell it, tne whole front part of the City market was a mass of flames. The fire alarm was sounded immediately and the department responded quickly, but when the firemen arrived the front and center of the market was one mass of names, which streamed far up Into the air. n was a sight long to be remem bered by those who saw it. The extreme rapidity with which it had all taken place prevented oulv two or three en- glues arriving by this time and only a very small crowd bad gathered. A sec ond alarm and then the general alarm was sent In as- soon as possible, and when a sufficient number' of engines got to work some headway was made against the flames, although the Chapel street, ena oi tne structure was soon practically gutted and Its contents de stroyed. Slowly the firemen . com menced to make headway, and In a half hour had the flames chiefly confined to the tower. The firemen were only able to let their streams play on the lower portion of this and could not reach the seething mass of flames above high up in the air. So it was quickly perceived that the old olook and bell tower must go. Swiftly the flames mounted upwards; Dreading out now at one opening, now at another, until the entire tower was en veloped with the forked tongues of flame. The olook stopped at 11:26 and at 11:27 the bell fell with a heavy thud and at just twelve minutes, before twelve o'olock the upper part of the tower fell. the greater part of it falling into Union J street where the burning timbers were quickly extinguished. ' ' When the tower feu Captain Hurley. of Steamer 4, was struck on the left leg, but, was not seriously" hurt. Hosemon Joseph Condon was struck on the back of the leg and in trying to set un slipped and struok his head against the curb, wounding- him. His injury was attended to by a pnyeiclan present and he was .sent to his homo, , William B. Grannies, Iaaclerman of Truok 8, was overcome Dy tne smoKe. . Soon after another smaller piece of tne lower part of the tower fell on the building itself. After this control of the flames became comparatively sim ple. They spread to the rear tower and there was a fierce fight there for some time. The flre originated in the flre-oraoker stand belonging to John B. Judson. A Williams, fruit dealer at 1 and 8 City juarKei, aiso naa a stand out in front, There was a flre in the stand about fif teen minutes before the wholesale ex plosion of fireworks came, - which the man In charge put out, or supposed he put out, at eonsmerabie injury to him self. When the explosion . came it quickly spread all over John B. Jud- son's stand and soon back through the building. - About midnight the floor fell in and all the trains on the Consolidated rail road that pass through the cut were de layed all night. Hheehao. & Groark did some excellent servioe. They had two lines., of hose playing on the building for hours. The new chemical engine was taken Ud Into the Masonic temple, which was in this way saved. Chief Kennedy estimated the total ss at $75,000. Those doing business in the City Market with their losses and Insurances so far as could be ascer tained, were as follows: ' . u. B. Judson, loss 24,500, insurance $3,000; H.

While the flame were at their high! est on the Union and Wooster street sides of the building the entire State street block was threatened with de struction, but by the heroic efforts of the firemen, and the fortunate preva lence of an easterly wind, all the build ings were saved with but little damage.

The plans for the bulldln and tower were made by the late Harry Austin, who was for half a century prominent in hla profession here. The building was erected about forty-eight years ago and was accounted at the time one of the best railroad stations of those days in the New England states outside of Boston and Provi dence. Upon the erection of the new Union passenger station the premises were converted mto a city market. which they have since been used for. the railroad company still retaining Its rignt to call ft a passenger station by sioppmg a train, or two there.

"On this day of the days," said he "ull speak with a fullness of heart and with an overflowing love for American Independence in ouo voice. One note ojuy can be struck." Then he gracefully introduced Min ister Bayard as "onr chief, who comes accredited to this country stainless among stainless politicians of the United States." The band then played tne "Star Hpanglod Bannor," and Mr Duyard's health was drunk standing. witn a rousing "throe obeers." Upon rising to respond tho American minister, after the applause which greeted him had ceased, said: I wish sincerely that I could prop erly voice all thot you feel on this oceu- lon.

Referring to General John Hewston, whom the grand jury refused to indict for causing the death of George Bur ton, an itinerant musician, and who sat on the right of the American minister, Mr. Bayard said: "What has excelled the kindness and hospitality of Eng land; where has greater justice been found? We, although not asking favor, acknowledge with the greatest grati tude the comity and justice of this great nation. ' This it Is that bears us across the ocean to each other. Let us become rivals - with Great Britain in kindness and justice. Let us be rivals In what elevates our nations." After the band had played "Hail Co- umbla," Consul General Collins respond ed to Mr. Bayard's speech, saying that he was - sure It expressed the feelings of American "exiles' In London. The remainder of the evening was spent in social chatting. ; FVN ON HOWARD AVENUE. Two Clubs Make Splendid Displays of Fireworks A Fine Balloon Ascension Also Interests the People. Howard avenue was lit up gaily with firework demonstrations last evening, made by both the West Side and the Sacred Heart clubs, these near neighbor ing clubs vieing with each other' in the patriotic work. The displays were splendid, and were viewed by hundreds of people. Immediately after the fireworks the residents of Howard ave nue- m tne same vioinity and others were treated to another demonstration. A large flre balloon, thirty feet high, was set up, and attached to It were two efllgles.representlug respectively Mother Grundy and Miss Gossip. - The balloon sailed upward about 600 feet and then struck a southerly current, which drove it, with its trailers of effigies, over to wards Long Island. Hundreds "viewed the spectacle with much interest. Nineteen years ago yesterday a similar flre balloon was sent un from the same locality, and with an efflgy of Mother Grundy attached. It landed at Greenport, Long Island. ' Attached to the enigy was a polite note from Con ductor Frank Hermanoe requesting Jde oent burial for Mother Grundy from tne party into wnose hands she might chance to fall.

Heveral of lliein were of a serious nature, but tho majority were only of a minor char acter. The saddest accident of the entire day occurred at Luke Whitney shortly uftir noon. Churles D.

Suddenly upon looking around a few minutes luler the child was nowhere to ho seen. Diligent search was made for the lost boy, but nil efforts In this direc tion proved futile and the distracted parents were at last compelled to abandon ull hope and return homo without their little son. Late lust evening the little lad's body was found floating on the placid waters f the lake near the float, and removed to the home of his parents. It is sup posed that while his parents were talk ing the boy took the fatal step- and sank without a struggle. The parents heard no soundof any body falling Into the water.probably owing to the noise of flrecrackei-p, etc.. In the vicinity of where the accident occurred. The body was recovered by one of Boatman Day's men, and after Medical Examiner Swift had investigated the case, and ren dered a verdict of accidental drowning, removed to his parents' house on East Pearl street.

Af ter having touched It off, for some rea son It failed to explode as soon as Judd thought It should. He accordingly bent over it to see what was the matter, when the cannon exploded and the powder and small pieces of the cannon struck him in the eyes. He was taken into the house where Dr. C. A.

CLAIR M'KELWAT'S ADDHESS, The address of St. Clair MoKelway, , editor of the Brooklyn Eagle, was upon tho "Sale of Law." He had been er roneously set down on the program to sneak on "Cities and Reforms." Th worst evil this nation ever had to oon.v tend with was the sale of human beings, When the wrong of slave holding be came rank,' it challenged divine justice, The challenge was accepted. As the way of G od with monster evils often is, this one was let to work out its own de struction. The northern conscience was stirred. The moral movement started, which curled its course, from New England school houses and pulpits beyond the hanks of Missouri to its culmination at Appomattox. The laud was hillocked with graves. The years ran blood and the skies were blackened with battle. A line of heroes and martyrs sprang from tne loins of the plain people to the summit of achievement. The heroio age of America was lived, The other and unabolished and in creasing evil is the sale of law. Of the sale of law, when being made, the evl 3 dence is not wanting, either at Wash ington or at many a state capital.

ItiaH olaimed that by this process both par ties are bought, law is sold In the mak ing and the people are foreclosed from's redress. A nation can ordinarily rely on hV that one party will promise to be hon est when the other is convicted of beJ ing dishonest. The other party has al-J ways been regarded as the national al 1 ternatlve, but this system of oon,tribu-J tions to both parties leaves the nation i with a sense of having no such alterno-5 live, ii contributions from trusts with no politics In them to each of the polit ical organizations amount to a morWi gage on both, then the sale of law is protected against political agitation, aq tne sale ol human being never waa. - DIFFERENCES TO Bfl RHOAKDKD.

When law is bought and sold nothing else goes with the bargain, except suoh abstractions as the virtue of legislators, the character of political parties, the honor of the republio and the rights bt the people, to whom the olaimed nur-1 chase of both parties, if true, allow no remedy. : ..... ,i ; To the trust who ia mayor or who ia Jthafrfleweriwaathe cause, .H - . - , V .1. qotigi(6 idjsp UilrA-eag- v-
