Two Women Ran about on the Roof of ths Bnrnlng Bnlldlng but They Were Kef cm dteven People Mlaalng and a Search ii Being Made fur Then. Hartford, Nov. 4,-At 7:45 o'clook to night a fire was discovered on the first floor of the five story brick bulld1ng,42S to 433 Main street, occupied by Neal, Goff & Inglls company, house furnish ers. The fire was seen by passers-by who chanced to look into the store and saw a bright light In the rear end ot the rtore. About the same time a loud re port like that of an explosion Was heard In the building, and almost immediately the flames shot through the transoms and windows of the store. In a few min utes a fierce fire was raging, and the flames were eating their way rapidly through the floors above. Three alarms were turned in In quick succession, and all the fire apparatus In the city was brought out In the meantime there was great ex citement in the neighborhood. The floors over the store were occupied by O. H. Minor, who conducted a boarding house. There were twenty-five guests In the house, and they rushed out of their rooms in great haste, without attempt ing to save anything belonging to them. By the time the fire department began work on the fire the flames had reached the roof. The stock of wall paper and carpets in the store made a hot Are, and the other buildings In the neighborhood were threatened. While the flames were working their way through the upper floors of the building the people in the street saw two women rushing about on the roof of the burning building. They were In a state of excitement and several times walked over olose to the edge of the roof, acting as though they were preparing to jump. Some body ran up on the roof of the building adjoining that which was on fire, and assisted the women to a place of safety. They were domes tics employed In Minor's boarding house. . The fire burned fiercely until 11 O'clock, when the walls fell In. All of the number of guests who were stopping at Minor's bearding house have been accounted- for exoepting seven. It is not yet known whether or not these perished In the fire, but a search Is being made for. them. It Is thoflght that everyone In the house escaped. There were re ports circulated in ths crowd that an old1 man was seen -to appear at one of the windows on the third floor and at terwards fell back , in the fire, but thus ftr"it'is not positively known whether anybody was burned or not The firemen were still at work with hydrant streams at midnight. The ruins were too hot to begin a search for the bodies ot possible victims. .How the Are originated is a mystery. There Is theory that the explosion In the store was caused by' the gas meter. A few minutes before the Are was discovered Frederick GroSbedk, a clerk employed in the establishment was in the store f.nd lit the gas. The building Is owned by Colonel H. K. Kennedy, who places his loss at $60,000, Insured for $10,000. The loss on Neal, Goff & Inglls company's stock is estimated at $60,000. DIED IS CHICAGO.

There were several bands In the pa rade, and the line of march was brll llantly illuminated with red fire and) other fireworks. .The Hyperion was very prettily dec orated. On the boxes were hung large) portraits of Lincoln, Garfield, Granl and Harrison. On the stage was a pro fusion of palms and flowers. ; The meeting was called to order by) Chairman MacDonald of the republican) town committee after the band had ren dered a patriotic selection t under the: efficient leadership of Frank FlchtL In introducing the chairman of the) meeting Mr. MacDonald spoke in the main as follows: ; "There was a very wealthy man in ai neighboring city who counted his wealth! by the millions, who was once waited! on by a committee who Informed hint that he had been elected president of an orphan asylum. He thought a mo ment and then asked the committed what was the salary of the office to which he had been elected. They re plied that the services of the president of the orphan asylum had always been gratuitous, as It was a work of charity for the poor orphans. "Well,' replied Croesus, 'I can't accept It.' "Now, gentlemen,- that to the answer that many men give if they are asked to take, a position which they have the leisure to attend to, which may be of considerable benefit and Importance to the community, but to which no money; consideration is attached. "We have one with us here to-night, however, one who stands out in marked contrast to such men a man who gives) his services to the city gratuitously, a staunch republican, a man of honesty; and integrity. I have the great pleas ure of Introducing to you Mr. Henry T, Blake as chairman, of this meeting." Mr. Blake was received with ap plause. He said: "I am not surprised! at this magnificent audience. . This morning I was afraid the rain might keep you away although I knew It would not dampen the , ardor of this) meeting. Next Tuesday a regular cy clone is going to sweep down on the democratic party front Maine to Louisi ana. I should not be surprised 1f that party was visited with the greatest devastation it has ever experienced, al though judging from the family rows) that are going on In the democratic household there will not be much of lk left to be destroyed. The wiles and- blandishments of the) democratic party, whloh two years ago enticed the people of the country to destruction, have played out. : Little Bo-Peep may have lost her sheep, but the sheep are coming back and bring ing other sheep with them who wilt never again mistake the democratto wolf for a shepherd. . But I will not go into the Issues at stake In this campaign. Other mora eminent speakers will do that later. J weloome you to this last rally of the campaign, and I invite you all to the: final great struggle at the polls next Tuesday. Let every man be there." , He then Introduced ex-Congressman Kellogg of Waterbury as the first speak er of. the evening. Mr. Kellogg spoke ta the main as follows: "I did not expect to make speeches hj this campaign, for I think I am about old enough to be on the retired. UsJ, But I told Mr. Sperry that If I could do bim any good, or he thought I could do him any good, I would gladly do my, share. And that's why I am here to night Now I want to commend the gentle men on the state ticket They are clean. honest, upright and reputable men. It has always been the good fortune of Connecticut to - have good governors, no matter from what party they have come. Look at such men as James B , English, Hdbart E. Bigelow, Charles RV Ingersoll, Henry B. Harrison. And there is one who ought to have been, and would have been lnhe governor's chair four years ago if the democrats had done their constitutional duty. I refer to that staunch republican, General Samuel E. Merwln. -; 'And this state ticket we have nomie nated is going to be elected. There if not going to be any deadlock. The suc4 oess of the republican party is the only way to stop ine war mat is Deing made) on our Industries. v I want to say a few words about this obnoxious Wilson bill. The bill that was finally passed was no more like the bill that Mr. Wilson Introduced into the nouse than light is to darkness. It was) altered to suit a large number of demo cratlc senators who wanted to protect industries In which they happened to iCottUaued on Third, eg.. , n v.,Ht' '-ff-'-'
