Upper fart Falte With Big Crash-Notes
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.

After coffee General Collins made
speech, In which he thanked the guests
for helping to celebrate the nusplclous
day. He especially addressed the men
of tho consular service, whom ho said
wore before anything gentlemen whose
services were far beyond the compre
hension of the bureaucracy.
"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. I suspoct the best way Is tho
simplest that I endeavor to speak as a
republican citizeu regarding the forces
whioh have mane our countrymen

possible In the realm of tho Georges
in 1894 and for the republi

manhood enabling a nation to cele
brate the 118th birthday, and which,
please God, will enable it to keep its
one thousandth., I pray you to con
sider the underlying principle) sustain
ing what has made us tho inheritors of
more than our forefathers dreamed,
Tho self-responsibility of the individual
freemen has done this. Sec the dignity
with which it invests each of us as a
citizen with a right to exercise his con
science, with a right to a voice and t
vote, and I would add with a right to
work and enjoy the iniits ot his labors,
for the hearts of men to-day can retain
the spirit of '76. . The heritage will not
be lost, '".,;-., -. -v-. " ,. .
'Americans abroad have not only in'
dividual rights to sustain but the na
tlon's interests. As fellow citizens of
Washington we may stand and notbe
ashamed. We may be utterly de
prived of rank end fortune, but be as
honorable, honest and courteous as any
people: Nothing In the soil from which
we drew our roots prevents an Ameri
can from being a simple gentleman."
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. ;
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
