Of granite exterior, the structure! nevertheless was not fireproof, while, within, winding corridors and wooden partitions made almo3t ideal conditions for spread of flames, as to-day's lire plainly proved. Coaled With Ice. Hud It not been for the llreproof construction of buildings surrounding the Equitable, there is little doubt in the opinion of fire Commissioner John? son that With the sixty-mile gale glow? ing, a great conflagration would have resulted. Tho adjoining buildings however. proved effective vantage points from which to pour streams upon the burning roof. Within n few hours structures on all sides wore coated with lco frozen from the wind driven spray, and it seemed as if a crystal city stood gleaming In tho sun. Firemen worked with their coats sheathed In lco and tho engines were covered with a white frosting. One of the most dangerous ordeals the firemen Tiad to face was the necessity of fighting the flames, amid showers of granite chips, many I of them large enough to .-rush a nun to death, which pooled off the facade of the building when subjected to the Intense heat on one side and ley cold <>n the other.

The coating of ice. according to Fire Chief Kenlon to-nltrht. was all that was holding the weakened walls of the structure together In some places, and he expressed the fear that as soon as this icy ccmont melted the remainder "f tho building might collapse.

Lee Park will be the name of Rtch mond's newest home for baseball, this r.aino being decided upon yesterday at a conference of the men who aru di? rectly Interested. The day was largely spent In forming plane of Incorpora? tion, talking over prospects and ar? ranging mutters so that when the time arrives nothing will have been left undone. A considerable portion of tho ilny was giv?:ii to the Corporation Com? mission. A suitable corporate num.'! must be selected, and, at the same time, conflict must not he made with! other corporate bodies to which char? ters have been Issued. | In order to definitely locate the new park und for the benefit of the hun? dreds of fnns who are anxious to Itnuw, a trip was made to the lot yes-i lerdny by the writer. He found it opposite tho plant of the Richmond Forglngs Corporation, on the car line leading to the Fair Grounds. It Is, even covered with snow, un Ideal site for a ball park. Bigger than Bruad Street Park, It has a gradual natural . slope, which should bo a great aid I when the draining question Is con- | sldered. It Is. understood that ar-, langements have been made with the Virginia Railway and Power Company to run all cara to tho park when games are being played. The one good feature, from the les? see's standpoint, is that a permanent lease could be obtained. On all Broad Street sites viewed the only kind of a lease which was offered was one which had a clause providing that tlie lesse e- must vacate whenever the owner notified. As the United States League expects to be a permanent organization, and us Richmond 1? looked upon as one of the best towns In that or? ganization, the owners of the Rich? mond franchise will build a plant of, a typo needed by n team In a league Playing the quality of baseball wTllch the new league will offor. Therefore,] no chances could be taken when It I came to securing 11 park, for a baseball plant, properly constructed means an Investment of several thousand dol? lars. Owr?er Bradley, the man who con Joe Boehlmg He wits signed .Holiday by Clark? Griftith for the ? Washington club. He la a southpaw, and was the best among the local amateurs last season. trolb the Richmond franchise in the Virginia Stute League, had nothing to say last night relative to the new league, though, by Inference, he clearly let i the impression that he did not regard the organization at a periuu nent affair. He nidn'l put It into words, but he left tho Impression that ho looked upon the Intruders us a choice! variety of solicitor? who were com- j inc. to Richmond to seek Investors in I a proposition Which bad little to of fer tlie investor. However, Ernest C. Landgraf, t'.io man who will look after the playing end of the Richmond team, looks like he means business. Jacob O. Ui/.nrou?. the financial end u.' the partnership', likewise lnoku real. At any rale they have invested considerable money ntid are ready to put up more. They cau hardly wait until the snow leaves the ground In order to begin work. Al? ready contractors huvj neeh visited and estimates secured for rearing the stands needed to take care of t'.ioj crowdB. "Somehow or oilier there bee-ma toi be an Impression gSlnlng ground thai i wo aro horo to fight the Virginia I League," said Mr. Landgraf, in talKingj over the situation. "I hate to repent i so often, but a more mistaken idea could not have been gained. I know! Mr. Bradley and entertain for hlni i the highest regard. He has always! treated me fairly in every transaction ! 1 have and with him. I sincerely hope I that next season will be tho most pros perdue he has over had. We will not ' conflict with him except when we urej in Richmond. We will be a way from home half of the time, while he will be here every Thursday, Friday ami Saturday. "This idea of untagonlBm. or thuii any Individual or set of Individuals j has, by divino right, the aole privilege i of giving buacbull in any given locality! Is pure nonsense. If I urn In business] in a city block and some one wishes to enter the same line of business in the satno block, have 1 the rlgnt to tell my prospective neighbor that no hasn't the right to compote with me in thut block, because 1 have it pro? tected? It is poppygosh. We are light? ing no one. In fact, two entirely dif? ferent quulltlcs of basobuil goods v/ill be offered, and we are going to leave it to the fans which brand they want or whether they want both. To show tho way I feel toward the Richmond club und tho Virginia League, If I have a player I cun't use, I will be only too glad to turn him over to thu Rich? mond team or any otber team in the Virginia ]>;ague wonting him. It's simply n question of live and let live. That's nil thero is to It." Landgraf, during the course of con? versation, remarked that In New York certain enemies of tho new league had' spread the rumor that It was being or? ganized simply for the purpose .of blackmailing the owners of clubs al icady In organized baseball. "That's i the basest fabrication that was ever; Invented," hu said. "So far as I am I concerned, I wouldn't right now part with my Richmond franchise for gl0'"?, eOO Th.it might sound like Idg talk, but It's just the way I feel about it. \\e would much rather have our strength underestimated than over? estimated. To he held til contempt is already half u victory." If present plans carry the United States League will begin its season about May 1, The reason for tho late opening la because some of ihe parks may not be ready In time. Another reason Is that a schedule will not bo adopted until after the big leagues huvo named their playing dates, for Hid very , obvious reason that conflict? ing dates will lie avoided in the cities in which big league names are already being played. Richmond's mnnngcr I will in rive some time before April 1. Players will report a few days thoro i after. PJttaburg will train at Newport News or Portsmouth, whllo Brooklyn!

It might bo of Interest to local funs who followed Adrian C. (Pop) Anson during his better days, to know that ho will manage the Cincinnati club. Pop Anson Is of the old school of ballplayers.
