w.oBiviiTnv. D. G.. March 15.?Sec- ^
rotary Blaine tonight sent the following
telegram to Gov. Nicholls at New Or- b
MIt has been represented to theTresident
by the Minister of Italy accredited
to this Government that among the victims
of the deplorable massacre, which
took place in the city of New Orleans ti
yesterday, were three or more subjects n
of the king of Italy. Our treaty with 41
that friendly Government, which under
the constitution is the supreme lav^of "
the land, guarantees to the Italian sab- C
jects domiciled in the United States, n
'the most constant protection and secur- 0
ity for their persona and property,' making
them amenable on the same basis as *
our own citizens to the laws of the n
United States and of the several States, b
in their due and orderly adminiatration. *1
"The President deeply regreta that the .
citiwns of New Orleans should have eo "
disparaged the purity and adequacy of
their own judicial tribunals as to trans- h
fer to the passionate judgment of a mob
a question that should have been adjudged
dispassionately and by settled
rules of law. The government of the
United States must give to the subjects
of friendly powers that security which
it demands for our own citizens when
temporarily under a foreign government.
It is the hope of the President
that you will co-operates with him in
maintaining the obligation of the United
States toward Italian subjects who may
be within the perils of the present ex- >
citement; that further bloodshed and t?
violence may be prevented, and that all
offenders sgainst the law may be prompt- Jy
brought to justice.
"James G. Blaine." ^
The telegram was the result of a eon- jt
terrace between tbe President ana we a
8ecr?Ury, about one o'clock this after- j|
noon, Baron Fava, the Italian Minister, n
having previously called on Secretary
Blaine and earnestly protested against &
the killing of bis countrymen, demand- ft
ins at the same time protection for all t
other Italians In New Orleans. J

United States Navy, who by hie bravery
saved the lives oI (oar hundred people
daring the Saaioan storm, two years ago,
and who has been the guest of the West
Virginia Legislature for two days, was
at noon yesterday presented with a very
handsome gold-handled sword by both
Houses of the Legislature in the hall o(

West Virginia this handsome and suitably
inscribed sword as a testimonial 0/
the State's recognition ol gallant and
heroic service.
I need not reconntin detail thegraphic
story of the disaster at Samoa in March,
1880. The United States frigate Trenton,
Sag ship of the Pacific squadron,
was among the storm-tossed vessels
in the fatefnl harbor, Bndderless,
saillessand propelierlesa in the height
of the storm, she was drifting on to her
doom upon the reefs. At this critical
moment the nerve und ready invention
of one man, in rank only a Lieutenant,
but by virtue of superior ability in that
time of danger the recognized leader
and real commader of the Trenton,
proved equal to the supreme occasion.
Ordering his crew of four hundred Into
the rigging, he scoured In the form of
massed humanity Just the requisite sail
to drive hia ship ciear of the reefs and
back into the open water, saving the
Trenton from destruction aud her four
hundred and forty souls from death by
a method as novel as it was daring.
But it w?s not by thia conspicuous
performance alone that this navigating
officer, H. M. G. Brown, of the Trenton,
won distinction In the awful disaster at
Samoa. After the Trenton struck the
steamer Vandalia, he alone of all the
officers of the Trenton remained on the
bridge during the height of the storm,
giving the orders that reached the Vandalia's
crew from the sunken steamer's
mast. Indeed, throughout the whole of
that terrible disaster the deeds of Lieutenant
Brown were characterised by
heroism and gallantry that added real
frlory to the American Navy and chalenged
the plaudits of the Natiou,
Lieutenant Brown, on behelf of the
State of West Virginia and by authority
of ber Legislature, I have the pleasure
of presenting to you this sword in recognition
of gallant and meritorious servii>M

duty as an officer in the navy of the
United States.
Poetry has canonized the momory of
the gallant "Six Hundred" that "rode

Immortalized one of her brightest
pages the "three hundred" who fell at

gift oi your native State, will, so long as
It has lorm and remains intact, be a testimonial
of yonr intrepid deeds and brilliant
achievements and a warrant to
honorable fame.

embellished with appropriate setting

"From his native State, to Lieut. E.
M. G. Brown, U. S. N., in aocordance

"Fire I The Hogan block Is going, and

The first show ol fire was at 0:30
o'clock. The fire soon spread to the
north side of West Fayette street, and
Chief Reilly quickly sawthat the threatened
destruction was too great for bis
apparatus to fight Ho wind Oswego
and Borne to send sld, and he had hardly
done so when the danger was suddenly
doubled. Fire and smoke burst without
warning from the top of Roscoe
Brothers' five-story block in East Washington
street, four blocks awsy.
A flying brand from West Faystta
street haacaused it, andbefore the overworked
firemen could sond relief this
second fire was also beyond control, with
only a single stream playing upon it.
At 8:30 o'clock a fierce conflagration
was raging in two upper floors of the
Yates mock. A moment or two later
there was a tremendous crash, and an
immense volume of smoke was thrown
out from the burning building, which the
flames rose high above the ruins below.
A cry of horror went np from the
crowu and everybody felt that a man was
lost. The wall for about the distance
from the Montgomery street corner to
the Koecoe building had fallen in, crushing
the floors below and bringing them
with it to the ground. When the smoke
cleared away, as it did in a moment or

The lire was raging all about him, and
the feeling was that he was doomed beyond
all possibility of escape. He was
not aeen to emerge from any other part
of the bailding, and It la thought that
he perished in the flames.
About 9 o'clock the Oswego relief
