In the alleyway it was not so -bod except that limbers began to fall, and the lives of the firemen were always in Jeopardy. W. R. Shepherd, of IS Ran? dolph Street, was injured by falling glass, but his wound Was found by Dr. Turnuvn. of the City Ambulance Corp.?, to be only superficial, and lie returned to the tight. Belli water lowers were put into use, though the second was not erected un? til more than an hour after tho fire was started. The only hope was to drown j tho fire out: there was no chance ot clicking It In tho building. Water Was hurled into the blaze at the rate! of 10,000 gallons a minute. But the] water for a time seemed to be but fuel ? to the flames, and the fire redoubled its! fury. People in G odd in Hall and in1 other adjoining buildings began rcniov- | Insr their belongings, for it seemed j , that the entire Meek would go. The I firemen, under the leadership of ChleftH ?loynes and Baffo and Assistant Chiel j Wise, worked harder than they had ever worked before.

Police ofllcers from both districts were called to the scene, and lines were drawn about the ruin. Major Werner and Captain Barfoot re? sponded with their men. and nave val? uable aid to the firemen.

The building Is .four stories high, and every lloor was devoured. M?st of tho heavy machin? ery was on the street lloor. but liiere were heavy store-: of papers and stones on the third floor, and It was feare.l that the floor would break under tho : weight and crash down. Mr. linen lielleve?. however, that Iiis papers and "nooks were saved, as they were stowed In a brick vault which runs from the basement to the third floor. This seemed to be unharmed, though the firemen were unable to tell definitely on tureount of the thick clouds of Smoke and steam with which they were constantly surrounded. everything else was destroyed. The ruin was complete, and the building was gutted from lop to bottom.

The peace pilgrimage included Felix Martinez, of Ki l'a.?b: Fsqulbal Obre gon u:vl Oscar BranIff. of Mexico City, speaking Independently, but for the Federal government, and Sllveattoi Y er ravens, of Chihuahua.

"1 will give Diaz twenty-four hours to resign," he said to a delegation of El I'asoaus and Mexican citizens that called on hint III I his camp In the hills near Juarez and nBkcd him to consider peace terms. ! This assertion was also a reply to Gonzales Garzu, secretary-general of' , the revolutionary Junta, who carried j n message from Dr. Gomez in \Vaslt I Ington. asking for a delay In the at? tack. '.'Dias must, surrender the presi? dency." This, he said, was Iiis tlnal reply to all attempts tu bring about' peace or a truce of arms. An Associated Press correspondent ' ; was In the camp when Madero met the 1 peace commissioners. After the con? ference Madero dictated the follow? ing: ! "The pence commission came unofll \ daily and asked under what terms 1 ] would make peace. "I said 1 would agree that, In tho ' interest of peace. I would resign as I provisional president of Mexico, but only If I consider that tho will of the people has been satisfied; otherwise tho revolution will continue, notwithstand? ing any peace negotiations.

Murales patrol the outskirts and soldiers are held in readiness to respond to the slightest alarm. City Surrounded. Madero's army almost surrounds Juarez. The main command is in the mountains toward Fanchoro Do Flore?, almost due west of Juarez. Garibaldi's command of 200 men Is northwest or Juarez. There Ihe in Burrccto artillery is mounted and there the lnsurrecto chieftain nnd his lieu? tenants met during the day. Bauche is occupied by troops that arrived from tho South last night. In the event of an attack on Juarez, the only danger to El Paso from bul? lets will be from the tnen at Bauche, if they attack from the southwest. The lnsurrecto cannon would fire parallel with the Bio Grande pad El l'aso into Juarez. Unless he receives orders from Mex? ico City to the contrary. General Juan J.

At the request of that body, he appeared ho ! fore It and rendered an exhauHtiS'e re? port on the international relations af I feeling Mexico and the I'nited States. I The minister said nothing regarding 'the negotiations to re-ostabllsh peace, j because, as lie. privately explained, (he ! Mexican government does not recbg i ulze the existence of the rebels, so that. ' officially, there have been no negotla I tlons. ?Concerning tlie exchange of notes lie - twoen the two governments over the Agua i'rleta incident, lie told the dep? uties little more than what they al? ready know. j lie reviewed tlie mobilization of the American army, repeated President Taft's explanation, and Injected occa? sionally a mild adverse criticism ot "minor American authorities." In concluding lie reminded the depu? ties that they should not hide from ! themselves the fact thai a great army is yet camped upon the frontier and that conditions now unforeseen might have a disastrous result. Few members of the chamber were 'absent. Both galleries were tilled, even to all available standing room. The afternoon papers, bearing the statement of Madero that he would light first and talk of an armistice later, had Just appeared, and many read the rebels' declaration as they el? bowed their way to points of vantage. Many doubtless secretly sympathized with the rebel cause, but happiness was apparent on the face of none. I nder High Teilston. Tlie Mexican people are under a high tension, and this was evidence 1 this afternoon. Men loyal to the govT eminent and who would like to see Maden? win. but who realize Ihe dan? ger Involved, listened attentively to j every word ,.f (he minister. it was not a crowd that applauded. It was I one that _ wanted to learn something I more than It already knew. That de? sire was not realized, but the optimism of ttic minister did not appear to have Ihe effect of reassuring the deputies or throng of spectators. To-night various newspapers carried tlie report In full in extras, and the! thousands of Mexicans who had been unable to gain access lo the chamber eagerly purchased the papers. Minister Do la Borra expressed sur? prise when told of Madero's refusal to listen to a proposition of an armistice at this time. Other govern? ment officials also showed their sur? prise, or shrugged tholr shoulders, ac? cordingly as they had formed their opinion as to what I ho rebel leader would do. That the government now lias no choice hul to meet the advances of rebels at Juarez and tight is iid iclttcd. U was believed by most of the resi? dents of the capital that tho day of peace was almost at hand, but to? night It is agreed that Madero's re? fusal to agree with his agent..Dr. VaSr ques Gomez, has afforded tin unex? pected complication. Tlie dien who have been attempting to obtain an armistice will noi relax- their efforts even if the battle of Juarez Is fought. DemnndH Attended To. Foreign Minister De Kt Barra. In his report lo the Chamber of Deputies, said in port: "The representation? made by the American embassy in Mexico for Hie due protection of lives and Interest? of American citizens in tho republic have been duly attended to by (be Mexican government, which has offered im? mediate and adequate protection and lias compiled with all of the demands which international right Imposed. In some of the cases cited to the depart? ment In my charge there has appeared to lie Insufficient foundation for tlie fears expressed and the allegations made. Throughout, however, the ne? gotiations have bectt Inspired by' a spirit and sentiment of mutual consid? eration" The tninislcr reviewed tlie capture of Dln.lt and Converse at Juarez, telling llic deputies the character of ihe diplo? matic exchanges that have been Ihe result o'f the Imprisonment of these Americans. Regarding the wounding and killing of \merlenns In Douglas during the battle at Agua Frleta and the note sent hv the American government lo the Mexican government, tlie minister snM: , "This note was answered after hav? ing received the reports, and to tho American government Oie opinion wns expressed that th? shots'had proceeded not from the Federal^oldlgrs. but from filibusters coming from that country "Safes! for Savings" and enlisting In the ranks of Lopez's company. At tho same time flm department called tiic attention of tho American government lb certain nets of minor authorities of tho. army and of tit" police not In accord with international usage. I assured the American gbv ernment that tho Mexican government deplored the death of the Individuals wounded by hilllets shot by the Insur rectos. and reiterated Instructions pre vlously given to our Federal forces to avoid shooting In the direction of the territory of a neighboring country " Fenrn No Friction. .Minister de In Harr? expressed the opinion ihm these negotiations could hot result In the leasi friction bc twr-fn the two countries, for the chan? cellories of both were actuated by mo? tives most sincere to effect an adjust? ment that would be satisfactory. lie added that a few minor American au? thorities, however, bad placed In the way noinc obstacles by their opposi? tion to the passage, to the Federal j troops on the frontier of munitions of] wa r. \ Following this review of what had been done the minister made his re- ! marks more personal: "The moment is Important for our national life," he snld. "Notwith? standing Unit th<- precis.- and friendly] declarations, of the President of the j United States may calm the spirit in Mexico there remains on our frontier; n grunt army supplied with abundant elements of war. "\\'e should not hide from ourselves I the gravity of the situation, for, not-1 withstanding the spirit of the two countries Is friendly and cordial, there j nilgai arise a conflict from eircum slnnces now unthought of." lie assured the deputies thai all must await the course >>f events, an.I r>-.|<> gized the President for his firmness, prudence and patriotism. He asserted that the president had watched care? fully lite (.volution ol the Mexican peo? ple, and that In peaceful methods ho was willing and anxious to foster their] growth.
