WAS A TERRIFIC EXPLOSION THE nor DROPPED A BLAZ1NO LAMP INTO AN OITj TANK. Serious Fire in Bridgeport Last Night Great Excitement Among the Neighbors All Escape Two Persons Injured A Synagogue Endangered. Bridgeport. Jan. 31. A fire, which threatened to do considerable damage, broke out at 4 o'clock this afternoon in the store of Gustave Brooks, 7 State street, In this city. A son of the pro. prietor attempted to fill a kerosene lampbut while he was engaged in pour ing oil into the lamp the oil caught fire in some unknown manner and the youth dropped the blazing lamp into an oil tank. A terrific explosion followed, and the flames soon spread to a wood bin. In a few minutes after the inside of the store was in flames and the smoke was pouring out of the windows above. Over the store was the furni ture stock of Augu&t Lieberum, and on the third floor was the Jewish syna gogue, while on the west side of the building was a tenement house occu pied by Russian Hebrews. The tenement house was threatened by the flames, and great excitement was caused among the tenents. All es caped after removing their furniture into the streets. The stock of Lieberum was damaged to the extent of about $1,000. Brook places his loss at $1,700. Young Brook was badly burned about the head and face by the burning oil Thomas Broderick, a hoseman of com pany No. 1, was badly cut about the face and hands while breaking a win dow in the store. The building where the fire occurred was a four story af fair, and the damage to that is esti mated at less than $1,000; insured. Death of W. H. Mandell. Hartford, Jan. 31. William H.

Lecture By Key. Dr. Greer of New York, in the Divinity School. Rev. Dr. Greer, rector of St. Bar tholomew's church of New York city, delivered the first lecture in the Lyman Beeoher lecture course at Marquand chapel yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock. His subject was "The Pastor and His Place." In his remarks he spoke of the great extent of the subject. The work of the minister deals with all things in all spheres; there Is no be ginning to it nor end. It is a great question to know where, when and how well the young minister shall start. There will be limitations to his work of a self-imposed nature in the the logical world. How can the new knowledge in the theological world be reconciled to the old knowledge, while students in other departments of knowledge are free to express their views free. This is not strictly so with the student in the ology. He then spoke of the preacher and the past, or what is Involved In a past theology. Knowledge of theology Is progressive. In Itself It is constant, but the knowledge of it varies. There may possibly come a time when we may say we know all about things, but there never can be a time when we shall know Christ in His fulness. Christ is more than man. He is bound less and therefore we cannot put Him within bounds. The kingdom of God is always open and beyond us. We cannot shut it up; if we do we make it no longer the kingdom of God. Men cannot shut out the truth of God, but it will more and more reveal itself to men. Fact is fact and will remain a fact, but the interpretation of a fact varies with the age. Each age finds something new in the great fact of Jesus Christ and thus it will be to the end of time. Our observations are but fragmentary while God) is infinite. If our various doctrines may not be such as every man can honestly and fully subscribe to, what shall he do? He should in that case seek to find the symbols for which the doctrines stand and find whether or not he fully understands the doctrine and the pur pose for which it was framed. Faulty though these articles may be, let us consider their purpose and endorse the purposes for which they were framed, and not some recent form of it. We should endorse the good done through monasticism and other movements which did good in their day. They were good for the particular time and purpose for which they were organ ized, but it is not necessary to bring them into the foreground now. Dif- fteretnt ages and -emergen cles to be met, require different methods and means of defence. This is true in the theological field and hence the doctrinal symbol should not be looked upon as an obstacle to present or future prog ress. Thefla lare two ideas every! man should keep in mind: (1) He will not lightly throw off the past. (2) He will not be lavishly bound) to it, but grow out into the future and apprehend things both new and old. When the climate stops seeking for truth, it begins to die. But the church Is bound to grow with its ever in creasing interpretation of Jesus Christ. The finest words of man cannot fully Interpret and express the life of a com mon man, much less the life of the Divine One, which is portrayed in the Gospel page and that, too, in human language. But for practical purposes we must have definitions, et oetera. of the Christ and his teachings. Hence we should accept these contributions which have come down to us; but these contributions can never take the place of the personal contact and knowledge of Jesus Christ, which comes to every man. The theme then, of the ministerj is an Inexhaustible one Jesus Christ. The second lecture by Dr. Greer will be delivered at 3:15 o'clock this after noon at the same place. City lodge. No. 36, I. O. O. F., will hold a smoker in their hall in the I. O. F. building next Wednesday night. TO UNO NUN'S RlifVBLlCAN CLUB. Executive Committee of Club Elected Last Night. At the adjoulrned meeting of the Youmgl Men's Republican club last evening Frederick B. Farnsworth pre sided. The following were elected mem bers of the -3ecutive committee for three years Sidney Dawson, Captain Luzerne Luddington and A. McC. Mat thewson. President Farnsworth was authorized to present at the meeting of the State League of Republican clubs a request for larger representation, at the meetings of the league. The club will celebrate Lincoln's birthday with a banquet at Banquet hall. The speakers for the occasion have not yet been, selected. Better Garbage Collecting Wanted. To tho Editor of the Journal and Courier: One would naturally think from all that has been written and said against the present system of garbage collec tion and the garbage barrel teams used In this city during the last year at least, that the taxpayers would insist upon having the garbage wagon used which was invented by Walter S. Swayne and which Is so made that the covers cannot be left off nor can any odor come from It. Much time and thought ha "been given by Mr. Swayne to this invention, which is complete in every way and! the best out for the work. Why not make a move in the right direction and that immediately ? A FRIEND. ABOUT FIVE FUNDRED VISITORS Entertained at the Almshouse. A very pleasant entertainment was given at tho almshouse at Sprlngsld farm laBt evening and was attended by about five hundred people from West vllle and vicinity. It was given under the direction of John F. Gaffey, the su perintendent. It was mostly a musical entertainment. The Samedi Banjo club and the Acme quartet gave some excel lent musical selections.

Banquet and Business Meeting To Take An Active Part instate and City Politics-B The annual banquet of the Monticello club was held 3ast evening, and after the viands had been discussed a busi ness meetlne was held, at which Treas urer T. kT Dunn reported receipts for the year of $4,905, expenditures $4,842, The secretary, T. N. Prentice, reported the club's membership as 375. 'There was then presented the report of the special committee appointed last No vember to form plans for advancing the club's political usefulness. In the report it was advocated that the or ganization become an active political club, working both for the interests of the party in this city and in the state, On motion of Colonel E. Shelton Cornell committee of five was appointed to present amendments to the by-laws in accordance with the suggestion of the former committee, and to report Feb ruary 25, at which time officers will also be elected lor the ensuing year. This committee Is composed of J. N. States, Lynde Harrison, Fred C. Earle, Harry Asher and General E. E. Bradley. Speeches were made by General Brad ley. Dr. Seaver, Professor Scripture, Judge Hotchkiss, H. W. Asher, C. H. Fowler, all; of this city, Melbert Carey of Rldgefleld and William Kennedy of Bridgeport. TALE'S ClAIM STILL STANDS. She Has Not Receded From Her Original Position. One of the officials of the Yale cor poration said, yesterday relative to the alleged compromise Yale is making in the matter of the Storrs Agricultural school fund: Yale has not receded from her original position nor will she. The appointment of a committee to arbitrate was simply in accordance with the act of the legislature at the last session which provided that Yale was to receive damages for former ine qualities. The appointment of this committee a few days ago does not signify that Yale has abandoned its olaim to the annual fund and will have no effect whataver on the suit now pending in the United States court. Professor Brush, director of the Sheffield Soientiflc school, Yale's scien tific department, sails for Syria to morrow to be gone till April and the appointment of the committee to assess damages will probably prevent any further action hostile to Yale being taken during his absence. An Address by Mr. Thrasher. Bridgeport, Jan. 31. Samuel P. Thrasher of -the Connecticut Law and Order league addressed the members of the local temperance league in this city to-night. He advised the members to unite in their efforts against the saloon element rather than with the drunk ard. A Shocking Accident. Berlin, Jan. 31. While attempting to board a passenger train which was in motion on the Mlddletown branch of the Consolidated road to-night Edward Seyfert, a clerk employed in the office of the Berlin Iron Bridge company, lost his footing and fell between the cars. The wheels passed over both legs and crushed them badly. He was taken to the Hartford hospital. He is thirty years old and belongs in Pine Grove, Pa, A DAKOTA WOf.F HUNT. Novel Sport, With Lots of Excitement and a Sploe of Danger. From the St. Louis Globe-Domocnit.J For the past five years the citizens of Devil's Lake have celebrated New Year's day with a grand wolf hunt on Rock Island. Rock Island is an oblong tract near the middle of Devil's Lake. It is about two miles long and a mile and a half wide. It is barren of shrubbery, but scattered over It are heaps of huge bowlders, among and under which, in the winter season, the prairie wolves find shelter. The fact of these bowl ders being on that spot of 'land that was evidently cast up from the midst of the lake by a natural disturbance gives rise to wonder, since one may travel for miles and miles over the Da kota prairies in all directions and not find a stone as large as a hen's egg. The Dakota prairie wolf is not a dan gerous creature to meet unless he hap pens to be suffering from hunger and is backed up by a number of his ilk then he is apt to make it warm for man whom he manages to corner. The animals are a great pest to the farmer and stockmen, for they prey upon their calves and pigs unmercifully. They generally prowl In packs of from six to twenty, and they do the greatest dam age on those wild, stormy nights, when it is worth a man's life almost for him to walk a dozen yards from his door. It la almost impossible to trap a wolf, He is one of the keenest of four-legged animals and will avoid a pitfall or covered steel trap as carefully as if he had received secret instructions con cerning their whereabouts. The farm ers make some headway against them with poison, but this method of exter mination is not approved generally, for it endangers the lives if valuable domestic animals. In winter, when Devil's Lake is fro. zen over as smooth as a barn floor an the ice is from one to two feet thick, th wolves make their headuarters on Rock Island. They gather there by nun dreds, and every night the chorus o their short, sharp yelps sounds weirdly over the frozen lake. The excitement attending the Dakota wolf hunt probably not equalled by any sport known to the nimrod, since the game is large, wary, swift of movement, and full of tricks. There is an element of danger In it, too, for when the wolves are cornered they will fight with the desperation of mad dogs. It now and then happens that a wolf hunter comes off the field with his Clothes badly torn and his flesh lacerated by the claws or teeth of an infuriated animal, but there has never been a fatality resulting from the sport, The hunting party gets together at a given point on the shore of the. take about noon, and they come from all quarters. It is not an unusual thing to see one hundred and fifty men engaged In a wolf hunt. Each man carries a rl fie and a couple of revolvers. Some are on foot and some on horseback. The horses ridden are usually the little. wiry Indian pony or mustang, that can run all night and all day and not get tired. When the party Is ready to march it starts1 out across the Ice in the direction of the island. The horsemen are stationed around the island as near to each other as It is possible to place them and complete the cordon. The men on foot form in the shape of the tetter TJ across the island. Some of them carry horns, others tin pans, and when everything is ready the men move in the direction of the boulder heaps, blowing the horns, pounding the pans and yelling like fiends. The rack et rouses the wolves lying among the rocks and they dash from cover. Some of the animals are in burrows. These are smoked out, and it Is but a very short time before there Is plenty of game running helter-skelter, looking for new cover. , At the northwest extremity of the is land is a clear spot, and it is the aim of the hunters to get the wolves Into this open space, where they may completely surround them. The men gradually advance up the Island drumming, howl ing and firing off their guns, and the bewildered wolves flee before them un til they are driven beyond the rockB. It Is not until the animals are sur rounded at the upper end of the island that the real fun begins. They dash here and there to find an opening through which it is possible to escape They are rendered frantic by the con tinued blare of horns and the horrible yelling, and In their excitement snap and snarl at each other like a lot of surly curs. Occasionally a hunter takes a shot at one and brings him down, and in this way the ranks of the beasts are thinned out until from possible thirty or forty but seven or eight remain. These are preserved for the horsemen on tho ice, who are gene rally the best marksmen in the party The frightened beasts are given an opportunity to escape. The circle is broken with the opening so calculated that the wolves will flee to the Ice. They Immediately dash through, and the horsemen remain Inactive until they have passed beyond their circle; then they give chase. The wolf, with ts sharp claws is a swift runner, even on smooth ice, and when, the ice is cov ered with a slight coating of snow he Is capable of making wonderfully quick time, but, as fast as he is, the little mustangs are able to keep cloBe to his heels in a straightaway race, but the wolf has the advantage of being able to make quick turns, and that Is what he does. Every wolf hunter mounted on a horse Is proud of hla marksmanship, and it is the aim1 of each one to shoot an animal In the head, which, from horse back, is no easy matter. To shoot one through the body, these men claim, re quires no skill, and so it often happens that several hours are consumed in the wild chase of the wolves before the remnant of the pack is destroyed, and t is not infrequently the case that one man succeeds in killing the greatest number. When the last wolf escapes or has been killed the party returns to the town with their trophies, and- the affair winds up wth a banquet and a ball, which is looked upon as the event f the season. The man who has proven himself the most expert marks man is designated as the leader of the hunting party the next season. A SOUTHING TON MAN May Have Beeu on the 111 Fated Klbo.
