Galtbton, Tex*, Nov. 13?At 1:40
o'clock this morning the most destiuctive
fire in the history of Galveston broke oat
ia a email foundry and repair shop on the
north side of Avenue A, known u the
8trand, between Sixteenth and Seventeenth
streets. A fierce gale from the
north was .blowing and the flames spread
with lightning rapidity to both adjo.'n/n#
| buildings, one .Deing a grocery biorj ouu
the other a Lumble d weliing. Ia a twinkI
ling the long fiery tonguo had crcajed the I
streets, and two mom dwellings were in
I flamep, the inmate* barely escaping,
j At this moment thf fi'e department got
two streans going, but they were of no
[avail. The heat b.-came so intense that
the firemen had to abandon their poaiI
tioL-s, and the wiml rose and carried myriads
of sparks to the premises east of
Avenue A. A general alarm was* uuded,
I and in a half-hour two Mocks vera burn|
ing fiercely, and l?y 3 o'clock everyone
saw that a cs-j Migration was upon the
I city. The people f <r fquarws around on
| either side of .1m burning blocks became
panic stricken, and the piercing cries of
, the frightened *ouwn could bo heard
| above the dim of the tiro and mournful
wind.
At half-past 3 o'clock the fire hsd leapled
two bljcka dis'aut from its starting
! point, but in a perfectly straight line, being
confined to the blocks bounded by Sixteenth
and Seventeenth strcetm
tuk kllts fpkeadi.vo.
Al-out 4 o'clock tlie tire begau to spread
to the east and to the west of Sixteenth
and Seventeenth street*; the wind rose to
a gale, and pandemonium reigned. For a
time it seemed ai though the entire eastern
half of the citv waa doomed. The fire
spread rapidly to the southward, licking
up the blocks of elegant reaidences,
hastily abandoned by their inniatea. By
5 o'clock it had reached" Broadway, whiih
threads the center of the island, running
ea*t ar.d we*!. . . .
At 7 o'clock the wind gave signa of
dying aw??y and shortly it b'gan tonhilt,

the dre had eaten its way to Avenue C,
where at 9:30 o'clock it reumed to e xhaust
itself, and the firemen coming up checked
its further ravigfB at tbia point, or within
two blocks of the Gulf. The burned district
covers flf:y?two blocks, seven of
which are not swept entirely clean. It is
sixteen blocks in d??ptb, and average* a
width cf three blucks.

better known a/* the Slraud, which id one
block from the Hay, and is stopped within
two blocks ol the Gulf. ?> xitentb

Avenue D. By the time it had reached
Avenue J, or Broadway, it wa3 sweeping
|neatly tbr.'e blocks in width, from the
j w(st side of Seventeenth to tho east sido
of Fourteenth street. About three hundred
houacs were burned, which were occupied
by fully five hundred funi'ies.

almost entirely by the poorer claw,
and several families nero crowded into a

fashionable portion c f ftle c ity. One hundred
elegantly furnished mansions are in
ruius. Many of these reticences had
beautiful tprdona attached and tho moneyed
loss dees not represent over half

All manner of estimates are to be heard
at this time. The City Awewor says the
taxable value of the dwelliugs burned is

POLITICIANS AND OFFICE SEEK EES. jj
The i>oliticians and their hangers-on
are busily discussing, over the proverbial m
Democratic beverage, the results of the ^
recent cyclones in Virginia and New York. ef
The office-seekers bear an anxious look, at
while they button-hold the leading states- of
men aad earnestly inquire "if this is h
really a Democratic administration, and, th
if so, why are they not refurmad into ol- t*
fie* forthwith 1" of
For reasons that are verv obvious, not
the lei s'< of which is that Washington is of
increasing in favor as a national winter ot
resort and social centre, the demands for th
accommodations at the hotels and board- Ti
ing houses is almost unprecedented. Al- wi
though fully tifteen hundred new resi- ta
dencea hare been erected in the city with- be
in the past year, the demand for houses C(
cannot be supplied, snd, in conuauence,
rents are advancing. Of course the tenants
protest against what seems to them
an outrage, but they are met with the gi
rejoinder mat "a dozen other families are
willing to take the house to-morrow at

It is predicted that the coming winter ^
will be one of the gayest social seasons A,
ever experienced at the Capital, notwithstanding
tho "Jeflereonian Simplicity" we ^
were promised should prevail under this H(
administration. With the advent of the c{<
Democratic leaders cornts the Southern tb
aristicrat and his bluo-blooded family,
who, if not representing aa much wealth j
as the Northern aad Western irillionaires
of Republican days, beasts of an ancestry qc
from away back?just this side of the date .u
when his great grandfather's father purchased
his great-grandfather's mother
from a Uritieh importer for a ft- w hundred
pounds of tobacco. * He is more intolerant Q
aud aristccratic than tho Northerner or
Westerner, or even the plain tvery-day
Southerner who U not ashamed that be .u
earned by the sweat of hia brow the right ?
to live elegantly, or even sumptuously, if w
you please. Ti
The word pictures of the "Jbffersonlan ,,
Simplicity" which this Demncratic ad* ,
ministration was to eatablish in Washing- (
ton, were beautiful in the eyes of the aim- .J
pie Americans during the campaign, but ,
if he would satitty himself that the whole

It was in 171)3 that President Washing*
ton recommended to Congresa the nccea* K1
aity of building a National Armory, for 8l|
the manufacture of anus for the United .wl
States troops. Tho suggestion was acted "r
upon and the Harper's Ferry site waa cho- *f
sen by reason of its wonderfully superior ril
water power. Previous to that t'nio tho
States of Virginia and Maryland had been
in diapute over tho Potomac river, both
common wealths claiming it aa a part of in
their territory. However, tho matter waa yii
amicably adjusted by a compact, tho provisions
of which gave each Stato political '
jurisdiction to tho middle of tho river, "'J
When the Government works woro built |V

ise is the title to the water power, and 7

Mr. Butt stated to your correspondent
lat he holds that the United States had *
a absolute right to the use of all the water J
?wer that the river was capable of pro- J
ucing at that point, and that any omer *
ghta were subordinate thereto, both as a 8

Wabuinotok, D. C., Nov. 13.?The U
vil Service Commission has let down the
.re in the Staling case in a way to disurage
friends of civil service reform, o
Iter three days' constant wavering be een
true reform methods and their de e
of making it possible for Collector ^
sdden to appoint Staling, they have de- n
led on the latter course. Just how far tc
e President's evident wish that Sterling (Ji
cu'd be put in the way to succeed, and w
cretary Manning's efforts in that line
fiaenced tho Commission, it is hard to "
y, but they had much to do with it. The ?'
>mmias!on has ordered the entire list of J8
irtv who passed the examination to be Jjj
rtifled to Collector Hedden. J
Thin puts it upon the latter to select, 5
it gives Sterling, who was twenty-fourth, Jj
tqual showing with the firat. They 11
il lmvo the grace to have the seven
Idler* put at the head cf tho list, with "
e evident desire that Hidden mav ee- JJ
it one of them, but they shirk all the
sponsibility, and left it with him.
lough the rules cm be interpreted to "
low them thin privilege, yet it is plainly ,
violation of their spirit, and was never D'
sorted to until tho desire to help Ster- J"
ig caused the Commission to go to a ^
agth n? ver reached before. Ontdoprendent
thus established the Commission
akes the civil service examination not *
mpetitive, but eimply qualifying, and j*
aves tho whole matter of election to the ~
pointing officer. If the rules are to be *
retched to that extant, it is regardod as ?
irticularly unfortunate that the first caae y
lould be made with tho purpose of help- ?
g a man like Sterling. ,
Tl'is act will undoubtedly be used to in- 0
re the new Commission, and it is but
irtoeay in jislicu to the new Democratic *
embers that Dorman B. Eaton was the "
io who has been the chief in tho whole
raugement to thus aid Sterling. The 111
