One of the Worst I'ires In Many Years Visited San Francisco. San Francisco, June 27. The worst fire San Francisco has had in over thirty years started shortly before o'clock to-night in the rear of the San Francisco box factory, located at Fifth and Harrison streets. Before the de Dartment reached the ground the. flames were sweeping through a num ber of frame buildings on Fourth street, which backed into the box factory and has leaped across the street to the Southern Paolflc hay barns. The sec- ond alarm was turned in only to be followed by a,- third and fourth in rapid succession. Chief Sullivan was one of the first to reach the scene and he Teal Ized the danger at a glance. Before one-half of the department had connected their lines It was seen the fire was entirely beyond control. iWord was telegraphed across the bay to Oakland and Alameda for assistance. The sister cities quickly responded with two engines each. These were located along the water front and used as pumps to supply water from the bay. The Southern Pacific pumps had lines of hose connected and did good service in bringing salt water to eupply the fast weakening fresh water mains. A strong wind was blowtag from the west and fanned the flames across the broad streets, sweeping everything In its path, Shortly after the second alarm was turned in a heavy explosion shook the city and it was said that four kegs of powder stored in one of the big ware houses of the Southern Pacific had blown up. Heavy timbers were whirled I through the air for blocks. These land- '' , - ,j i J .-i. e w..it.li ,i f yJU. ugui ll ama uuiiuiijh lui lll?r ' east and In a short time the firemen ; were practically hemmed In. For a 1 time It looked as though the fire would be gotten under control. The wind gradually died down, but the suction of the now roaring acres of inflammable material continued to carry embers of ten four feet loner throuerh th air. Shortly after 7 o'clock the wind sud denly changed to the west and drove the flames back over the burned district At 9:45 the fire was gotten under con trol. The high brick wall of the de serted Southern Pacific offices at Fourth and Townsend streets acted as a barrier over which the flames could not pass. The water furnished from, the bay by the Oakland engines and Southern Pa ;lfic pumps soon had the outer erige cf the fire under control During the progress of the fire all 3orts of rumors Were current. It was eported that when the powder exploded jeveral persons had been killed, but this s hardly true. At 9 o'clock it was re oorted that several tramps who had )een Seen to enter the big lumber yards :arly in the evening had been cremated ftvhen the fire swept through 'he piles ijf lumber. Several firemen were injured 6y fall iing timoere, Dut none are reported kill Id.

FAIR HAVEN PETITIONERS PROPOSITION TO BUILD AX ELEC TRIO FREIGHT ROAD Through a Number of Fair Haven Street The Project Strongly Advocated by Manu facturer and Others Opposed by Some of the Property Owners. At the meeting of the committee on railroads and bridges last evening for the purpose of considering the petition of the Manufacturers' Street Railway company for permission to construct an electric freight railroad through a num ber of streets in Fair Havetoi all the members of the committee were present except Councilman Frlsble. The rail road company was represented by At torney James T. .Moran, George S. Bar num of the BIgelow company, N. W. Kendall of the Quinnlplac Brewing com pany, S. J. Fox of the National Pipe Bending company and a number of oth ers. Messrs. Barnum, Kendall and Fox argued at considerable length in favor of the petition, claiming that if the road Were established it would be a de cided advantage to the manufacturing Interests, especially of that section of the city. They claimed that if the road were built the expense of manufacture would be reduced at least 25 per cent, aind in this manner enabled to compete with manufacturers whose factories are on the line of railroads in other sections of the country. It waB also set forth that the estab Jlshment of the road would act as an Inducement to manufacturers to locate in this section, as it would furnish fa cilities for moving freight more expedi tiously ahd. at a cheaper rate. Other m'a.iuifacturors along the route of the road are to be entitled to all the benefits of the road, the- same- as the members of the company themselves. S. L. Blatchley, the well known dealer in real estate, also argued in favor of trie road. Ho said that in his Opinion, while the railroad tracks would cross port!6h of his property. It would great ly ibeneflt him in making Mb property more valuable, and he was In favor of the project. He also claimed that the est'awishmeirut of the road would prove a. decided benefit to the city and in par tlculnr to Fair Haven, as It would in duce manufacturers to locate there and the lan would be more valuable for manufacturing sites than It la mt pres ent. "We must have manufacturing in terests in order to make progress," said he, "and therefore we must offer manu facturers at least as much inducements as they can get elsewhere." A large number of the property own ers on the streets oyer end through which the company desires to operate Its road strongly objected to the petition on the ground that the road would se riously damage thetr property and the constant running of freight trains would jeopardiza both the lives and the limbs of the residents of that section Ot the city. In executive session the committee, after deliberating over the subject for over en hour, decided to table It until a future meeting of the committee. BUILDING LINES ESTABLISHED, The committee on building lines met in the city hall last evening and estab lished nine-feet building lines on both sides of Franklin street, between Grand avenue and State street, and fifteen- feet building lines orv Hazel street, be tween Dlxwell avenue and Shelton ave nue. NOT MVCO DONE. The Session of the Klocutlonsts wns a Quiet One. Boston, June 27. The fourth day's session of the National Association of Elocutionists opened to-day with the reading, by Secretary Trueblood, of the report of the committee on colleges In the twelve leading colleges and uni versities of the east elocution and ora tory are taught in connection with Eng lish literature, logic and rhetoric, but in a majority of the schools of the country there are no separate depart ments Of elocution and oratory. The committee suggested that elocution is suffering in public institutions from the failure of instructors to command the situation and hence secure for th's department the same consideration shown to others. TherA Is too much of tha dramatic, too much desire to show off the speaker, regardless of the subject matter of his oration. The report was adopted. Mrs. Manning read a paper on "Dram atization as an Aid to interpretation." Then the convention devoted a half hour to an informal discussion of the "Rela tion of statue-posing, musically accom panied recitations and bird Motes to the art of elocution." F. Townsend Southwick of New York read a paper on "The Neglected Trini ty," the Trinity being, as he explained, the first person speaking, the second person spoken to and the third person spoken of." A discussion followed. The session ended with a brief address on the prin ciples of rhetoric as applied to the voice. Attendance Was Bmall Carbondaie, Pa., June 27. Owing to the threatening weather this afternoon the attendance was small at the na tional circuit race meet arranged by the Carbondaie Cycle club at Anthracite Park. Tennis Match Continued. Philadelphia, June 27. The champion ship tennis tournament was continued at Wissahickon Heights to-day. The at tendance was fully as large as on the previous days. Miss Hellwlg and Miss Juliet Atkinson played part of an in teresting match with Miss Bessie Moore, who is looked upon by many as the coming champion, and Miss Wil liams. At the end of the first set the score stood in favor of Miss Hellwig and her partner, when a thunder shower interfered and the game had to be postponed. ...... GOOD TENNIS WORK. It Was Apparent That the Amerjtiaus Kit Harder Than the Others. Newton, Mass., Juno 27. In the first set of the doubles this afternoon be tween Hovey and Hobart on the one side and Pim and Mahoney t on tha other, these things wpre apparent that the Americans, hit harder, lobbed to better advantage in forcing back their opponents from the net and, lastly, that our net game i far stronger than the British game, at least for doubles, According to our Ideas, moreover, tty positions taken by the Irishmen Were wrong, for they stood In the same places, whether they were the servers or the strikers-out, Hobart and Hovey gained the net at every dhanca and generally found a good chance to smash cross court or down the alleys. Of these two Hobart gained the greater number of places. Pim snowed great cleverness, at times, In returning some Of Hobart's drives that the latter eeetn. ed to think clean passes and Mahoney was. skillful lir accurate passes. The Bet by points: First set: Hovey and Hobart 4, 3, 6, 2, 3, 4, 5. 3, 4, 1, 4, 4 43 points, 7 games Pim and Mahoney 2, 6, 4, 4, 5, 1, 3, 5, 1, 4, 1, 136 points, 5 games. The Americans Uook the first four games of the second set by clever work in placing hard between their oppo. nents, who however, forced them to hit into the net or out by Well judged placing of jground strokes.. Hovey did some great work in swashing in the seventh. A last attempt to brace gave the Irishmen the next two games, but Hovey and Hobart easily won the set by taking the tenth by splendid work at the net. The points were: Second set, Hovey and Hobart 4, 4, 4, 1, 4, 4, 2, 1, 432 points, 6 games. Pim land Mahoney 1, 2, 0, 1, 4, 6, 2, 4, 4, 125 points, 4 games. -: Only two games of the seven played Ith the third set were vantage games, and of these the British champions only took one. ... , ' Any attempt by them to gain the neb- was stopped by fine lobbing on the part of the Americans, -who pounded all r turns even harder than ever. Hobart had greater accuracy with his ground strokes than ever before, and Hovey's smashing proved very effective in set tling points. The points were: Third sets Hovey and Hobart 4, 10, 4, 4, 4, 3, 433 points, 6 games. Pim and Mahoney 1, 8, 2, 2, 2, 6, 020 points, 1 game. , The Chace-Larned match was started in the rain and finally had to be stopped in the middle of the sedoftd Set, the downpour was so great. The whdle of the contest played was regular fizzle from a spectator's point of view. Chace made the games very tedious by con. tinual lobs, until Lamed would make a net or an out. Chace won the first set, 6-0, with the points 24 to 9. Tha second set as far as played was 3-2, Chace leading. All unfinished matches are to be played on Saturday. ANOTHER INJUNCTION Brought Against the New Haven Street Hallway Regarding Its Morris Cove Branch Extension. . The Morris Cove branch of the New Haven- Street Railroad company seems favored in the injunction line. Another Injunction, has just been obtained against it. This time the injunction is to restrain the company from contin uing its work, now in progress, of ex tending Its line to the Lighthouse. The Injunction watf brought by John I. Good rich, the well known ex-member of the board of selectmen. . He IS the own er of property facing the street through which the extension is being- made. Mr. Goodrich has no HI will to the rail road company, nor is he opposed to the extension of the line to the Lighthouse, but is oh the contrary in favor of hav ing the line extended, as it will be an advantage to his property, but the rea son o'f the move for the injunction is his opposition and that of various other land owners to having the street made sixty feet in width. . He is perfectly willing to have the street fifty feet wide, but not one of elxty, as a street of that width would, he Claims, be detrimental to hia property. f ' i; The injunction 4s brought to decide the question, and is brought against the company, as it is setting Its poles on thi disputed strip.

Meanwhile the rail- i road Company Will probably have to Stop all work oh the- extension until a hearing takes place and the 100 or more Italian laborers who have been employ ed on the grading of the road for the past three weeks Will be out. of a job, together with the track layers. The company has been pushing the work r&rward with its customary enterprise, and has already completed the exten sion of the road with four tracks from the Forbes house, the present terminus of the line, to near the old Morris stone house. ! - SALTONSTALI.
