Philadelphia, Aeg. 12. One of the
neroest fires that ever visited this city
originated at 8:30 this morning in the
rear of the paper box faotory of Brown,
Bailey & Brown, 412 Franklin street. The
building, five stories high and extending
through to Eighth street, is a complete
The faotory was surrounded by small
dwellings. The flames leaped aoross
Willow street to the dwellings on the
sonth side of that thoroughfare and are
rapidly eating their way through to Cal
low Hill street, a block south. A strong
breezejrom the northwest is blowing the
flames and it seems almost impossible to
save the dwellings on the south Bide of
Willow street, between Franklin Bnd

on Eighth street, north of Willow, are
It is reported that three employes were
burned to death in the box factory, bat
this can not be verified. The flames are
spreading rapidly, and the block, bounded
by Franklin, Willow, Eighth and Callow
Hill streets, will probably bo a total loss.
In the rear of Brown's faotory and facing
on Eighth street was Buck & Co's big gas

The fire Btarted at 8:30, but it was
nearly 9 before an engine responded to
the alarm. The delay proved disastrous.
The firemen turned their attention to
saving the adjoining bnildings, but the
supply of water was inadequate and it
looked for a time as if the whole block,
hounded by Franklin, Eighth, Willow and
Callow Hill streets, would be swept away.
i he firemen worked heroically until 11:15,
whflu the fire was under oontrol. The
prinoipal losers are Brown & Bailey and
Buck & Co. The former's loss will reach
$150,000, with insurance of $100,000.
Buck & Co's loss is between $100,000 and
$125,000, with insurance of between
$75,000 and $80,000. Yeager & Bro., coal
dealers, place their loss at about $20,000,
while the loss on burned dwellings is
about $50,000. Several firemen were hurt,

which have been received there leave no
room for doubt that there is a general de

promote an international monetary con

a dootrinal character, but wh-.eh would
aim at practical results. There is no
doubt that the London gold men have
been taken aback by the large number of
members of the present British cabinet
who are bitnetallists. For the same rea

Tien-Tsin, China, Aug. 12. A meeting
of foreign residents of this city was held
here to-day. It was decided to communi
cate by cable the necessity of the imme
diate intervention in China of the United
Stntes and British governments, and the
following telegram was addressed to the
Associated Press:
"The foroign community of Tien-Tsin
express sympathy with the friends of the
Ku Cheng victims. They consider the
Chinese officials guilty and the British
and Americans blame the continued
apathy of theirgovernoieuts for the situa
tion. They regard England's demands
for an inquiry into the Ku Cheng massa
cre to be useless, for, as before, the offi
cials will buy innocent heads as substi
tutes for the actual criminals. They pro
test that the Czechuen coinniisbion im
plicated the officials of that province,
liny In nd and America must send an ulti
matum threatening reprisals. Diplomacy
is nseless. We implore attention. Signed,
Dickenson, chairman."
Washington. Acting Secretary Adee,
of the state department, to-day scanned
the Associated Press cable from Tien
Tain, and said that nothing of the kind
had been received nt the state depart
ment. He furnished the following state
ment: The state department has re
ceived a reply from Minister Denby to
instructions, cabled him on the 7th iust.,
relative to the reported looting of the
American missionary property at Yang
Foh, near Foo Chow. Minister Denby
urgently represented the facts to the
yauion on the 10th, aud obtained in
stant promises of protection and
redress. Yung Fun is bolieved by the
officers of the state department to be the
same as Sung Full and log Hok, men
tioned in the press telegrams, the varia
tions in name being doubtless due to
erroneous transmission over the trans
Siberian cable, iu tho course of which
many transcriptions and repetitions are
Acting Secretary MoAdoo, of the navy
department, dictated the following: "The
navy department received this morning
from Admiral Carpenter a cablegaam an
nouncing that he had dispatched the De
troit to Foo Chow, the nearest poiut for
that vessel to reaoh the scene of the near
est disturbance.
A cable was received this morning
from Capt. Newell, commanding the De
troit, pnnonncing his arrival to-day at
Pagoda anchorage, about nine miles be
low the eity of Foo Chow.
Another cable has also been received
from Admiral Carpenter, announcing his
departure from Nagasaki for Che Foo,
China. Che Foo is the nearest and best
port for communication with the Ameri
can minister at Pekin.
. The department has again to-day cabled
Admiral Carpenter regarding matters iu
China and advising him to keep in close
and constant communication with Min
ister Denby."
A dispatch from Denby indicates that
the American minister does not share the
views of other citizens in China, who
think that reprisals should be made.
A high official of the navy said to-day
that it would not be right for United
States war vessels to begin bombarding
Chinese towns and killing Chinese people,
who are entirely innocent, because these
riots have taken place in the interior,
especially since the Chinese government
has already assured our minister that
everything possible is being done to pre
vent further trouble aud to bring the of
fenders to justice.
