Inside Facts On the Proposed
Street Extension Bonds.
They Are Not Anxious That Congress
Should Know What thi IVoplo
Think l'reo Ballot iindu Fair Count
Is What Is Intended That District
Couimltwo Supperof I.nst Session.
Do you think that thi District should
be bonded to pay torn now so Mem
of Kunoruiio it tut for street eitcn
Hlon nnd linprov.-meiitsV
Do yon think that , should u bond hill
iuss, any of the money realized
from tho sale of these bonds should'
he expended In Improving; Jirlvittn
ri-al estate holding oiitntili tlioclty
proper and remoti- from tho urent
body of tax-paj or-.?
These are the questions that the city
voters are to consider until the balloting
begins, which will probably be ncct Mon
day. Recently The Times published a list
of the gentlemen who had kindly consented
to have their stores as voting booths, and
the names of the.; gentlemen arc a guar
antee that there will be no Irresponsible
voting, no voting early and olteii.no stuff
lug ot the boxes, no Juvenile praaks, but a
cleau, clear expression of the opluion of
taxpayers' and those who will be oifected
by the pajraent of the interest on the
bonds. It Is true It will not be an Aus
tralian ballot. A plain, cvery-day Repub
lican ballot Is all that will be desired.
In the meanwhile certain interests are
growing restless under the publication of
matters of intrigue and the exposure of
new matters which are opening the eyes
of the prospective voters as to the inside
of the bond question.
It will be Interesting to read how the
present conditions which make the map of
of the District so irregular arose. Before
1ECG there was very little of a city outside
of Florida avenue. The owners, as they
had a right to do, started to build a city
of their own.
This new city extended over a territory
across the District to a distance of about
a hair mile north and Eoulh. They made
roads and streets in this narrow strip to
suit themselves, not knowing that the gov
ernment wouldtakeahaiidmthecMcnslons.
The old county roads were widened In
these suburbs, and streets generally were
made from sixty to seventy reet wide.
Outside of tills strip lay the great wilds,
which the speculators bought up, and
through which It Is now proposed to build
magnificent avenues and streets the wldlli
o f Ihoseln the metroiiolis. As a conscquenco
of the settlement of the lands outside of the
boundary not one of the aty streets from
First northwest to Twenty-fourth north
west has been extended in conformity with,
the city limits.
In order to carry out the extension, tho
plain, culd statement of the Senate Com
mittee ot the District, referring to the
plan of the Commissioners, is: "Their
plans are nearly completed, and in a few
weeks property to the value of $3,000,000
to $1,000,000 will be branded for condem
nation, which the owner will not be able
to sell or borrow any money upon, and
these owners will be In great stress in
case of foreclosure."
This siateraent Is one of the hardships
with which property holders are now con
tending In the suburbs. Only a few days
ago The Times published the raet that
fourteen suburban property holders wanted
to negotiate loans, and they were turned
down Jnst because ot the well-understood
condition of uncertainty as to the passage,
of the bill.
A member of the Chevy Clinse Land
Company has taken umbrage at what Tho
Times has said about its Interest in the
bill, and members of the board are also
desirous of knowing why Congress should
be given the opinion of the people on the
bond bill question.
Tne- Chevy Chase Land Company man
said that thecompanydoesnot care whether
or not the bill Is passed. His argument
Is that the property ot that company lias
already been well provided for, partly at Its
ownexpense, and that the railroad facilities
arc already excellent. It is even said that
if all the lauds in Hie neighborhood are
put on a parity that those which now enjoy
special privileges will lose them.
A member of the board of trade who does
not believe in spending money on Congress
ional committees, or any other kind of
lobbying, said that he was In favor of The
Times' project. "Why," hesaid,"wesimply
wasted nearly two hundred dollars last year
Just after Christmas, at the Arllugton Hotel
on the committees of the House aud the
Benate. The exact figures of the junket,
Lbelieve, were $189. All this money was
simply poured Into a rat hole, because the
bill didu't go through, and there will be a
new committee of the house In charge of Dis
trict affairs for the coming session of
Cotur rcss.
"Besides an this, why not let public
opinion rule in the case? It is certainly a
disgrace to legislation when It is known, as
It Is, and will be made more clear from
time to time, that personal Interests have
been pulling and hauling the committees
about for the last year."

Philadelphia, Nov. 21. The cause of
Cuba was eloquently and boldly advocated
at the Academy of Music tonight at a
meeting held undi-r theaiupicrsof thel'hila
delphia Brigade, Pennsylvania Reserves.
The principal address of tLc evening was
made by Gov. Claude Matthews of Indi
ana, who delivere-1 the sjieech upon -rree
Cuba" that he had prepared to deliver at
the Atlanta Exiiosltion.
The audience was not large, bat It made
up in enthusiasm what leei:Wlu'nuui-f
hers, and Governor Matthews anil the other
speakers were heartily appiaudcu and the
pentlmcuts they gave utterance to In behalf
or Cuba n liberty were thoscottheirauditors
Governor Matthews traced the history of
the "ever faithful isle," and contrasted It
with that oT the Spanish republics that had
long since gained their autonomy.
"Poor Cuba," he exclaimed, "lulled to
Jeep with fake and deceitful promises" of
reform, nnd the honeyetl flattery or 'ever
faithful, awoke to find herself deceived,
bound hand und loot, her loyalty de
spistil. robbed of her birthright, and only
prey for spoils. The pages of history no
where reveal more atrocious crimes a gainst
humanity, more cruel warfare and wicked
oppression, more examples of outraged
truth and Justice, nor greater crimes
against all Christian civilization than
have marked Spanish misrule aud des
jKHfsm in Cuba.
"The wrongs against which we rebelled
were hot half so grievous, nor tho tnir
barous cruelties half so great; and yet the
same great principles are involved that
aroused to action our fathers in 177G.
Yet with all disadvantages. theCubaii
patriot has l-en brave ami has fought a
good fight. Her sons have inhaled the at
mosphere of this liberty-IoUng country.
We can almost hear her agonizing cry for
help across the narrow channel that
separates us.
"When Americans may suppress sucli
sympathy, then may we listen for the death
knell of friedom, aud, fearing to voice the
spirit which animates our breasts, brand
uscowardsall. We, as a Government, with
high regard for national honor and national
dignity, may be reserved, conservative, nnd
diplomatic, butasludlvidualcitlzcns,wemay
span the dividing waters with a hopeful,
gencroussympathy, and bid godspeed tolhc
Cubau patriot In his sublime hope and his
holy ambition. His cause Is just, the right
shall prevail, and In God's own time Cuba
will be free."
Governor Matthews was followed by Gon-
zalo de Quesada, of New Tork, the secre
tary of the Cuban Junta. Mr- De Quesada
made an impassioned and dramatic speech
appeallngto thesympathiesof the audience
for the struggling Cubans, and asking
that they be recognized as belligerents by
this government.
Resolutions of sympathy and promising
aid the Cubans were adopted. The reso
lutions also called upon the Senators and
Representatives of Pennsylvania and upon
tho two houses of Congress when they
meet to pass a concurrent resolution direct
ing the President to recognize "Hie repub
lic of Cuba as a belligerent nation." A
committee of the Philadelphia brigade
will present the resolutions to Mr. Cleve
Capt. "W. "W. Kerr, nssistant district
attorney of Philadelphia, mado the most
radical speech of the evening In favor of
tho Cubans. Capt. Kerr has attained wide
notoriety ot lato as the owner ot tho
steamships Leon nnd Laurada, whle-li
have been accused of landing filibustering
expeditions upon the shores of Cuba.
Capt. Kerr boldly proclaimed his right
under the la ws ot this country to land men
and munitions of war upon the coast of
Cuba, and that tho burden of preventing
him dolug this rested upon the maintenance
of a blockade by Spain.
He ridiculed aud derided tho opinion ot
Attorney General Harmon, that the laws ot
this country prevented him from doing
this, and asserted, that under orders from
"Washington, every customs inspector In
the ports of the United States has become
a Spanish spy. Continuing, he said:
"And they might as well know that until
Cuba is free ships will constantly sail from
this country and laud upon the coast of
Cuba men nnd arms, and furthermore, if
they keep their eyes and cars open tbey
will hear of unothcr expedition being landed
In about ten days. They talk about risks.
"We're willing to take the risks."
Col. William Frazier, commander of the
Philadelphia brigade, announced to the
meeting that he bad received word from
Congressman Amos Cummlngs that the
latter had today drawn up a concurrent
resolution which he will present to Con
gress, recognizing Cuba's ueuigerency.

Chicago, Nov. 21. A fire which caused a
property lossof $500,000 and imperilled the
lives of half a thousand persons, mostly
young women, originated at 3 o'clock till
afternoon on the third floor of Charles
Emmerich & Co.'s feather and down goodi
factory, 175-181 South Canal street.
The conflagration was attended by'scenes
of Intense excitenientanda score ot firemen
narrowly -caied being killed by fire and
falling walls. When the flames were rag
ing most furiously, in spiteof the be-st efforts
of twenty-five engines and a small army
of firemen, fire brands were carried by th
wind to adjoining manufacturing bulldlngi
and It looked us if many more would have
to go.
The seven-story brick building extending
from 175 South Canal street south to tin
corner of Jackson street, the mne-s tory brick
building adjoining on the north nnd the
greater part of the four-story brick build
ing In the same direction were entirely
These buildings occupied nearly the whole
ot the block on the west side of Canal street,
between Adams and Jackson streets Tho
seven and nine story buildings were owned
by "Warren Springer, and the owner of tho
four-story structure, which Is one-third
saved. Is Wm. J.Wilson. The build Ings were
amply insured.
The following' firms were burned out

"Canal street.
The losses to the above firms are esti
mated at 350,000 and the building lost
at $150,000.
The fire started from an explosion
of chemicals used In cleaning feathers ana
the rapidity with which the flames spread
In the Emmerich factory, where 200
girls and women aro employed, created a
panlo in that building. The frightened
employes on the upper floors rushed for
the elevators, which were small and few,
and the stairways were soon Jammed
with, the horror-stricken and fainting
females. -
Cdol-headcd men and police offleers
summoned by the fire alarms in milek suc
cession, came to the rescue and prevented
a fire horror. Officers stood guard at
the elevators and stairways to prevent
mare than a safe number ot women using
these means of exit.
Tlie excitement was as great among the
200 female employes of the Banner VAaist
Company, whoso factory joined the Em
merich factory. Only a thin party wall
divided the Springer buildings, which
were practically one, and In an alarm
ingly short time flames had extended up
and down and through the walls to the
buildings on each sido.
In the early stage of the fire an engine
company and the chemical engine men
were sent to the sixth floor ot the nlae-story
building In the rear to fight the further
spread or the flames to the north.
The smoke from the burning featheie
made a dense,, suffocating cloud for the
firemen to work In, and they saw, then
too late, that the fire had broken out In
front of them and cut off their escape In
that direction by the ladder.
Shouts of warning were sent to them
from the chief and his marshals. The im
periled men forsook their apparatus and
struck out In the blinding smoke for the
stairway. The hose was the only thing
to guide them to safety, nnd they half fell,
half climbed down It nnd the stairs to tho
street. Several of the men had their handi
and fares badly cut and bruised and theli
appearance on the street was balled with
delight by tne tnousauus oi r iiois-
The falling of the towcrirg walls on all
four sides was a thrilling and dangerous
incident of the blaze. Without any warn
ing three stories of the smaller building on
Hie Canal street side came crashing to the
Firemen and officers who were standing
or working In front rushed from under tho
mass of tumbling brick until the building
on the opposite side of the street stopped
them and tLcn they barely escaped being
The same sccno was witnessed on the
Jackson street side when the three top
stories came toppling across the street
without warning. "When part of ttc west
wall or the Excelsior building fell It mado
a hole in the two-story brick huildirg of
the Miller, Hendricks Packing Company.
When the fire was apparently under con
trol a large part of the north wall of tho
nlne-storv structure crashetl on the four
story Wilson building, starting flames and
making havoc with the contents. Tbo
spreading of the flames in this-direction
save the firemen additional work, but they
were helped by the thick fire-wall in the
center ot the building.
The fire was under control in two tours
in spite of a high wind and a big start.
Nothing but parts of the SpringcrbuUdlngs
remain all the floors having been burned
through, csrrytng with them the costly
machinery.lltbograph presses and thestock.
