were saved together with the minor
buildiugs south of Machinery ball and
the Agricultural building.
Tbe lire started almost simultaneous,
ly at three points; so selected as to af
ford tbe best possible opportunity for
tbe spread of tbe flames. In each of
these places, on the second floor of the
Terminal station, the southwest corner
of the Mechanical Arts building; and on
the southeast corner of the Manufac-
tures building, a man was seen running
away from tbe grounds by passers-by
or members of tbe gangs of wreckers
who are at work tearing down the
.buildings, just before the Are broke out.
. One man was killed and one injured
during the progress of the fire.
At 8:25 the roof of the Immense Man

rectly oyer this tunnel at about 7:30,
when its roof caved in, and two men,
Edward Anderson and Edward J. Bas

lurnaoe below. Anderson, who was em'
ployed as a bookkeeper by Marshal,
Feld & Co., was burned to death. Bas.
sett was rescued by a policeman, but he
was severely burned about the limbs
and the lower part of the body.
By,!10:30 the flames had spread from
'the Mechanical Arts building across
,the -Grand Canal to Agricultural hall
and that building was doomed. The
firemen Were prevented from drawing
v water troaa-.tha take . by- the Intense
Heat from tha .Agricultural and Manu
factures' buildings. The Court of Honor
was almost ': entirely encircled' by
roaring mass of -flames. The firemen
had some time before abandoned all
efforts to save any- of the six big
buildings to which the fire had spread
and directed, their attention to saving
ithe Government building and Transpor

narrow escape from being burned
to death or- choosing death
by drowning. When the Are
caught in that direction they stayed
too long and finally had to be rescued
from their perilous position by boats.

publican member of the ways and
means committee a program regarding
the tariff bill when it reaches the
bouse r asked a reporter of ex
Speaker Reed this morning.
"What program could tbe republicans
haver asked Mr. Reed in reply. "We
are only nominally members of the
ways and means committee. We have
never been consulted regarding
the formation of the bill. We have
had nothing to do with It. I presuppose
the work that will be done from this
time on will be on the back stairs, as
was formerly the case. The republican
members of tbe committee will not
know what Is going on till the demo
crats have decided upon their plan of
action. Some of the democratic mem
bers of the house say provisions of
dissatisfied with certain provisions of
the bill; but they lack both the pluck
and steadfastness of purpose necessary
to carry out their opposition."
This was apparently all that Mr.
Reed cared to say regarding the bill,
Inasmuch as al questions relating to
the measure, for the present at least.
are a matter of speculation.' From his
remarks, however, it was obvious that
he believes that the bill -as it passed
the senate will be the one to which the
bouse will substantially agree.
Strong pressure is being brought to
bear upon the democratic members of
the ways and means committee to agree
In conference to the changes made in
the tariff bill by the senate, exempting
beneficial and mutual aid societies
from the operations of the Income tax.
Hundreds of petitions bearing upon the
subject have been already received by
Chairman Wilson.

New England Receiver's Certificates.
New York, July 5. The statement
was made to-day that the New England
sorganization committee, or friends in
its interest, took $880,000 of the $500,
000 8 per cent, reoeivers' certificates,
authorized by the oourt. This money
goes to pay the ooupon on the first
mortgage bonds which was due January
1884. Provision for this interest had
to be made, as the holders of the first
mortgage are entitled to foreclose six
months after default, which was July 1.
It is evident from the fact that the re
organization committee has taken these
certificates that they were issued in the
interests of the reorganization, and that
the plan, when It becomes operative,
will provide to take them up.
The certificates are not dated, but
are issued in the form of a temporary
certificate, which, it is said, is subject
to call of the reorganization oommit

Protesting Against Troops.
Washington, July 6. The president,
Secretary Lamont, Attorney Genoral
Olney, Postmaster General Bissell and
yenerai Sohofleld remained at tshe
White House until nearly midnight.
Many telegrams were received and
sent during the course of the evening.
When the conference broke up Secre
tary Lamont announced that there was
nothing to make pubiio except the tele
gram from Governor Altgeldt and the
presidents response thereto.
Governor Altgeldt's telegram protests
against tne presence of United States
troops In Chicago.
The president's reply follows:
'Federal troops were sent to Chicago
in strict accordance with the consti
tution and laws of the United States
upon the demand of the postofflce" de
partment that obstruction of ,the- malls
snouia De removed, ana upon the ren-
resentations of the Judicial Officials of
the United States that process of the
federal courts could not be executed
through the ordinary means, and UDon
abundant proof that conspiracy existed
against commerce between the states.
'To meet these conditions which are
clearly within the province of federal
authority the presence of federal troops
in tne city or unicago was deemed
not only proper but necessary, and
there has been no intention of thereby
interfering witn tne plain duty of the
local authorities to preserve the peace

In his telegram to President Cleveland
Governor Altgeldt In part savs:
"i am aavisea that you have ordered
federal troops to go into service in Illi

correctly presented to you in this case

seems io me,, unjustiname. The state

him to enforce the processes of : the
United States laws, and troops were
promptly furnished him. The law has
been thoroughly executed and 'every

"At present some of our railroads are

Prosecution Commenced Against the
Owners of Houses Rented For Unlawful
The police department of the city nro
determined to rid the city of all houses
of ill fame, and at lust have struck nt
the root of the evil, and if they do not
allow their efforts to grow lax this City
of Elms will soon be entirely free from
all haunts of vice, such as houses of ill
fame, disorderly houses and places
where gambling is conducted.
Yesterday City Attorney Fox issued a
warrant for the arrest of Edward Bud-
ingtou of 48 Union street, charged with
renting a house for a house of ill-fame,
The warrant was duly served by Patrol
man John W. Grant, and Budington
taken into custody. Ho was subse
quently released under bonds of $300
furnished by Max Bergman. The oase
will be tried in the city court this morn
ing, and is the first one brought In this
Last March the police made an effort
to break up all gambling houses and
bouses of 111 fame. The efforts were
successful as far as the gambling houses
were concerned but the other does of
houses continued to flourish as of yore.
About this time City Attorney Fox sent
to the owner of every house which was
known to be a house of ill fame or a
gaming establishment a notice which
rend as follows:
By Authority of the Slate of Connec
ticut, I, Timothy J. Fox, City Attorney
of the City of New Hnven, do hereby
give you nonce mat tbo promises No.
Street, in the city of New
Haven, owned by you and leased and
occupied by of said New Ha
ven as your tenant, is being unlawfully
used for the purposes of gaming, prosti
tution and lewdness, in violation of
Section 16i'l of the General Statutes of
1888, and Section 1 of Chapter 08 of the
Acts of 1893. You, as owner, lessee and
occupant of said premises, building and
apartments therein, are now duly noti
fied according to law, to eject thore
from any person or persons using or
permitting the same to be used for the
unlawful purposes aforesaid, within the
time required by law after the service
of this notice. Hereof fail not under
penalty of the law in such cases pro
vided. Dated at New Haven, this dny of
TIMOTHY J. FOX, City Attorney.
These notices were placed in the
hands of tbe patrolmen mid duly served
upon the owners of houses used for un
lawful purposes. Such a notice was
served upon Edward Budington, who
is the owner of the property G3 Fail
street, kept by Mary Fitzputrick, alias
Mary Moran, and used as a house of
ill-fame, on March 19 by Patrolman
Jere McGrath. To thiB notice Buding
ton paid no attention and on Juue 18
the house was raided and the proprie
tress and occupants were arrested, con
victed and paid fines in the city court.
Owing to the faot t hat apparently no
notice was being taken by the owners of
these houses of tbe notice sent to them
City Attorney Fox determined to show
tbem that the law could not be trifled
with and the present crusade was de
termined on. Budington will, It is be
lieved, oontest the case and make a test
case of it.
The penalty for every owner of such
house under section 181 of the city
charter is a fine of 950, while the gen
eral statutes provide a penalty of not
more than $500 fine and six months im
prisonment. Tale Athletes Entertained.

Washington, July 5. Tho treasury

toms revenues still lug at a very low!
rate, but Internal receipts are already;
a million ahead of lust yenr and estl
mates made from present Indications
place them for July and August at fully,
forty millions.
To-duy they roached $2,233,482, tha
highest llguru for any duy since the In
come days of the war. Thin Increase
Is attributable to the increase in py
inents of the tux on whiskey In bond,
which is being withdrawn in great)
quantities now that the tariff bill, car
rylng the Increased tax Is approaching
Its enuctmont Into Inw.
The stuted treasury balances show!
the effect of this stimulus from Internal
revenue sources, being to-day $U9,0?ft
323, of which $64,712,735 is In gold. It ia
not expected that Internal revenue r
celpts will keep up their present gait
after tho tnilt bill goes Into effect.
From tho stated balance of $119,000,000
must '.e subtracted $7,000,000 to be paid
for July Interest, which will not be
taken out until the end of the current
month. This leaves the balance to-dayi
at less than $112,000,000.

Slado Yesterday by a Number of Well
Known Business Men. V
A number of our most prominent
citizens in talking about the big fire at
the City market yesterday made the
suggestion that the railroad auhoritles
In rebuilding there erect a comfortable
sub-passenger station In place of the old
market. The idea further advanced
was, that this was oalled for by the size
and Importance of New Haven and its
continual rapid growth. They urged
that in all large cities there were such
additional railroad stations where the
accommodation trains stopped for pas
sengers. The present union passenger,
depot is already too small for Its uaes
and a new station where accommoda
tion trains could stop would be a great
public convenience. They also broach
ed the Idea that the railroad company
cover the cut all along through the cen
tral or business portion of the city and
build thereon, thus keeping tho tralna
out ot sight of the horses and utilising
