NEW YORK, Oct. 30. The long list of fire horrors which have occurred in nd around the city of New York, a list that includes the Hotel Royal fire. the Park Place disaster, and the Wind- or and Hoboken tires, was added to yesterday by a fire and explosion that shook the lower end of Manhattan like an earthquake, hurled a 7-story build ing Into the air and set fire to two blocks of buildings, with a loss of life that only the efforts of the hundreds of men who were rushed to the work of digging away the ruins ae soon as the fire was extinguished will reveal. The big building of Tarrant & Co., makers of medicinal specialties, standing at the northwest corner of Greenwich and Warren streets, and filled with chemicals, took fire In some way that may never be known at about 12:15 o'clock In the afternoon. It wa3 16 minutes after noon that a citizen rushed Into the house of fire engine 20 on Chambers street, near Greenwich, and shouted that Tarrant's drug house was on fire. He had seen a volume of black smoke coming from tho third story window. An alarm was turned In. Soon afterward second and third alarms were turned In. One fire company from station 62 had just arrived when a terrific explosion occurred that threw the entire engine crew down the stairway. The firemen, realizing the danger of their position, rushed out of .the building to the street. The explosion had filled the street In front with a shower of falling glass and small debris which sent the crowd, which was already gathering on the opposite sidewalks, fleeing for safety, and caused the horses hitched to the engines to rear and try to get away. Captain Devanny of the company from station 62 ordered the crew back into the building again. They were dragging the line to the doorway for the second time when another explo slon, more terrific than the first, came and the whole crew was hurled across Greenwich street, Devanny being so badly Injured that he wa3 sent away to Hudson hosnltal. In the meantime the other engines which had responded to the alarm had collected and the firemen were busy rescuing people from surrounding buildings. Firemen had already taken many girls down the only fire escape upon the building and more persons had ben carried down the escapes of the Home Made restaurant next door and the buildings adjoining upon War ren street. The second explosion occurred about five minutes after the first. From the accounts of witnesses the building seemed to leap Into the air and In a moment masses of brick wall, timbers nnd eton were falling Into the streets The force of the explosion tore away the walls of the big commission store house fronting on Washington street and caused them to collapse, falling all at once In a mass of timbers, boxes and barrels, from which the flames, which burst out from the Tarrant building like belching of a cannon, at once broke forth. The ruin Is so complete and covers so much territory that It Is impossible to estimate the loss. It can only be said that the property lo3s will be enormous. It Is believed that over a score of per sons have perished. BOERS ATTACK CONVOY. (lave l.".,0(IO Men In the Field In fmiill Hands Hut Close To;el)ier. LONDON, Oct. 29.

WHERE THE MONEY WENT Dellered That Hank OIHclul Know Dut Are Keeping It Hsoret. NEW YORK. Oct. 26. A search of the records in the courthouse at White Plains shows that neither Cornelius L. COItNELIUS L. ALVORD. Alvord, Jr., nor his wife, Jennie B. Al vord, owns any property at Mount Vernon or in the county of Westches ter. It was reiterated yesterday that the stolen money, or a greater part of It, had gone Into Wall street, either by di rect speculation or by backing a big bucket shop. It was said that Alvord had taken advantage of certain infor mation he derived from private sources which Induced him to speculute in rail road securities in which directors of the bank were particularly Interested On this point, however, the bank's officers refuse to talk, but one who knows the bank's affairs well said that if this were the ease Alvord must haw made money Insted of losing it. It is believed that the bank knows where the teller's speculations were, and what they were, but le unwilling to make the fact public. Thus no one appears to know .whether Alvord had any account. what bank h" used, or In what name he traded, if at all. "It looks," said bank otlicer yesterday, "as though whatever transactions Alvord may have had In stock speculation they must have been conducted In some other name." Whether this be so or not It was generally believed that no money thus lost by Alvord could be recovered from the brokers acting for him. A decision of the court of appeals in the Kiosum-Whitney case governs such transactions. Cornelius N. Alvord's three children, accompanied by their nurse, arrived at the home of Alvord's uncle in Stock port yesterday. They were not accom panied by their mother. 1114 Simple Scheme. WASHINGTON, Oct. 25. The comp troller of the currency in speaking of Alvord's defalcation said; "A further examination of Alvord's accounts by the officers of the bank shows that his stealings have been going on for sev eral years. Fourteen months ago he took a two weeks' vacation and on ex amination of his tickets preceding his going and after his return shows that he covered his shortage while absent by making a number of charges to out-of-town accounts, and credited back the amounte on his return before the monthly statements were sent out. "The amount of his shortage at va rious periods In the past seems to have gone up and down, nnd It Is probable this Is due to the fact that whenever he had reason to expect any Investlga tlon of his cash or a periodical visit from the examiner he would doctor it by meane sf these false charges against large accounts. In the present In stance the examiner went Into the bank a mouth ahead of the usual six months' period, the last preceding examination having been made May 13, 1!C0, ami this unexpected visit prevented 'a ma nlpulatlon of the figures by Alvord and led to discovery of the defalcation. "This theft could probably have been prevented by a rotation of the clerical force of the bank, thus placing each department under the supervision of different persons sucecwively. "There Is no way to accurately check the accounts of an employe If he has access to the succeeding day's cash from which to make good his shortage of the current day, and this Is what Al vord has always bad, and has also the opportunity to hold back credits for longer time than the day on which the letters enclosing items are received.
