LETTER FROM QUEEN REGENT Spain, it Seems, Wishes to Forget the Past The Duke and the Presi dent Shake Hands. Washington, June 3. The diplomatic relations with Spain, broken off April 21, 1898, were formally resumed at 11 o'clock today, when President McKinley greeted Due d'Arcos; the newly accredited min ister to the United States, in the bine parlor of the White House. Simultane ously in Madrid, if the programme ar ranged was carried out, Bellamy Storrer, the new United States minister to Spain, was being presented to Cbiistina, the queen-regent, daring the legal minority of his Catholic majesty, Alphonso XIII. It was a notable occasion in the world's history the resumption of friendly rela tions between two nations which had been at war and in the brief struggle had changed the map of the world. The speeches of today were especially notable. They were plain-spoken and devoid of the usual hazy diplomatic phraseology. The ceremony was ex ceedingly simple. Upon reaching the blue room, they were presented to the preeident by Sec retary Hay. The president was cordial but dignified in his greeting. The due then read his address in Spanish and the president responded as follows: "Mr. Minister: I receive with the greatest gratification the letter by which her maj esty, the qneen regent of Spain, in the name of her angust eon, Alfonso XIII, has accredited you near this government as envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary. You will find, Mr. Minister, a cordial welcome in- this country, not only from those whose friendship you .acquired during your former residence, but from all our peo ple, who rejoice as I do at the renewal of the ancient bonds of amity which, with a brief interruption, bave united our nations for more . that 100 years. "That these friendly relations may be confined and strengthened to the advan tage of both people is my earnest wish and I can assure you that every member of this government will heartily co operate with you to that desirable end." At the conclusion of the address the president stepped forward and 6hook hands cordially with the new minister, and they engaged in conversation in a low tone for a minute or two. The party then retired and was driven to the Arlington hotel. Millions Given Away.

At noon today the business portion of the town is a mass of smolding ruins, while on three Bides are rowa of scorched buildings marking the path of the. flames. The fire fighting apparatus could not check the blaze and it was only used to save some of the buildings outside the fire zone that were smoking and breaking into flames at times. . The fire' was started bythe explosion of a gasoline etove in the Siegel building on Clark avenue, where men were cook ing breakfast. It epread on the west side of the street to Browne's restaurant, and south to the Republic Trading Com pany's store. On the west side two en tire blocks were destroyed . Powder was used to blow up the build ing occupied by Alexander's law office on the opposite side of the cross street from Percy's building. Then the latter building was eent skyward, and the fly ing brands scattered the 'fire to the building on the east side of Clark ave. It is rumored that two opium fiends were burned in one of the buildings. No authenticity is given for the report, and it is impossible to learn where the sup posed victims were.
