The Herald LOS ANGELKS, TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 2, 1894- A BIG BLAZE IN BOSTON. Fire Causes Heaps of Ruins in the Hub. The Globe Theater Burned to the Ground. Several Adjacent Building's Also De stroyed. I Tbe Hanlon Theatrical Company Buffers a Heavy Loss—The Stub c>r a Cigar ette Started the Con- Ilea; ration. By the Associated Press. Boston, Jan. 2, 2:45 a. m. —The Globe theater was completely gutted and the property of Hanlon'e superb company ruined by fire early this morning. Every engine that can be spared ie being used to protect the adjacent property. At this hour a large six-story building just erected by the Harvard college trustees has caught, and it looks as if the entire block on the Harrison avenue extension will be swallowed up. On the Essex street side, adjoining the theater, are valuable blocks of buildings occupied by large business concerns, The streets of the city are in total darkness, and the electric cars have ceased to run, owing to the current being turned off. The heavens are illuminated with the blaze, which can be seen miles around. Sparks from the tire travel with the wind two and three blocks away, and a most careful watch is being kept by a cordon of policemen. The first alarm was given at 1:15 a. m., and was quickly followed by a second and a fourth alarm. It is thought the fire was started in the coat room of the theater by some one throw ing a lighted cigarette on the floor. It is estimated the loss on the theater is in the neigh hnahood of $500,000, and that of the Hanlon company $40,000. The fire is still raging arid there is no telling where it will stop. At 2:25 a. m., the fire has been checked on Essex street and the Harri son avenue extension side of the thea ter, but is eating Its way into the build ings on the other side. The Globe cafe is a total losb. There is a fair prospect of confining the flameß withiu the pres ent limits. It is impossible to etate what the damage will amount to in business and buildiugs. At 3:35 a. m. the fire is apparently under control and the danger of a gen eral conflagration is passed. The total loss will r.ndouhtadly reach oea/ly a million dollars. All the property was well insured. IT RAINKD BULLETS, Wholesale Killing; at a New Year's Kali In Trial. Columbia, Texas, Jan. 1. —Accounts of a wholesale killing at a ball at Cedar, abont eight miles from here, are just in. E. N. Williams was dancing on tbe floor and aroused the animosity of Lemon Qayle, who demanded that Williams surrender his place on tbe floor. Williams refused, but Gayle be came boisterous and Williams started from the room. when Gayle, his brother London Gayle and Bob Early began firing at Williams and others. London Gayle sbot through the window and killed a boy named Waddy, when another boy, Isaac Scctt, remarked: "London Gayle has killed Waddy;" whereupon London turned and, saying, "What is that to you?"shot the boy through and through,killing him instantly. Tben a general fusillade fol lowed from guns and pistols. A woman was shot through tbe breast and is now dead. Lemon Gayle was sbot through the body and will die. A girl was shot in the face near the eye; another equarely in tbe middie of the bead. A boy was sbot through the arm and another through the right hand, and others received various slighter wounds. After Lemon Gayle wae shot, his brother London ran in and stood over his prostrate body, Winchester in hand, and pumped cold lead into the panic stricken dancers, who were unable to get out of the bouse to avoid hie awful vengeance. Three are dead and a fourth fatally wounded, two seriously and about half a dozen have minor injuries. A WATIEK riIOBLEJI. Scientist, of the tteolngrlcal rinrvey OHUEIne; the Western Rivera. Washington, Jan. 1. —The determina tion of the problem of the amonnt of water that can be nsed for irrigation in tbe west is tbe object of an investiga tion now in progress by tbe geological survey. The scientists of the euivey have completed a chart showing tho mean annual run-off in tbe streams of tbe United States. It was compiler) under the direction of Geologist F. li. Newell and is tbe first map of its char acter ever made. It is the result of about 14 years'.study, though only since cix years ago has the investigation been conducted on an extensive ecale. Dur ing the past cix years all the large rivers in the country have been gauged by survey scientists. A HORRIBLE DISCO VICKY. Mysterious Death of Members of a Kansas Household. Independence, Kan., Jan. I.—One of the most horrifying discoveries was made this morning, when Al Brown, son-in-law of Georgu W. Head, manager of tbe Long Bell Lumber company, broke into the home of the latter and found Read, clad only in his night clothes, fitting dead in a chair before a hot stove fed by natural gas. Tbe body waein an advanced stage of decomposi tion. Edith Scott, a domestic of tbe family, was lying dead on tbe floor of her room, and Mrs. Read and her 6 year old son was in bed, the boy dying and' the mother unconscioua. Tbe terrible tragedy is ehrouded in myatery. Many theories are current aa to the cause, one being asphyxiation, another accidental poisoning, another foul play. The fact that two gas Btovea in the bouse were burning at full force practically explodes the theory of asphpxiation, and the fact that no bruises were found on any of the persons renders the murder theory almost incredible, leaving acci dental poisoning as the most probable cause. None of tbe family were seen later than Saturday eveninc, leaving no donbt that Read and the domestic bad been dead 33 hours be'ore discovery. Every room in tbe house was intensely bot, and there being no ventilation, the fumes from the badly decomposed body of Read were stifling, Aa autopsy was held today but notn.ng definite can be ascertained until an analysis of the stomachs is completed. The coroner will hold an inqnest tomorrow. Later.—The doctorß, after an examina tion, decided the family had been poi soned by Btrychnino, which probably got into their food. Mrs. Read is still un conscious, but doctors have hopee for ber recovery. The boy will probably die. MARY QUITE CONTRARY. MBS. LEASE DEFIES THE GOVER NOR'S AUTHORITY. I She Refnsea to Vacate Her Place on the • State Board or Charities and De nounces tbe State Ex ecutive. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 1. —Mrs. Lease today employed Judge Dceter to assist Eugene Hagan in prosecuting her suit against the governor. The first blow, in the courts will be struck tomorrow morning in the application to the su preme court for an injunction prevent ing J. W. Freeborn from attempting to take Mrs. Lease's place on tbe state board of charities. Mrs. Lease leaves tomorrow morning for Olathe to attend tbe meeting of the board. This meeting was to have been beld at Winfielil, but the place was changed by order of Mrs. Lease. The matter was afterward bronght to tbe attention of Governor Lewelling. The governor immediately telegraphed the member's that Mrs. Lease was no longer connected with the board, and instructed them to pay no attention to her orders. Mrs. Lease last night, however, stated there would be a full meeting at Olathe tomorrow. Mrß. Lease today Bent the following telegram to the State Federation of Labor in session at Leavenworth: "I desire to join my voice with yours and tender time and money in denouncing the executive power that has recognized rats and scoundrels and ignored labor organizations. The principles of the People's paity tut; erteiuuily unassaila ble; through them we will triumph, bat those betraying their trust and tbe cause of tbe people will pass irom sight by the labor vote."

TAXATION IN CC.ItMVNV. Allquel'i, Financial lteform Scheme Partly Abandoned. London, Jan. L —A dispatch to tbe News from Berlin says: As the result of conferences of tbe emperor with Ca privi, Dr. Miquel, minister of finance, and General Schellendorft, minister of war, Miquel's financial reform Bcheme | has been partly abandoned. Miquel has been induced to postpone the reor ganization of the particular contribution Bystem, and in consequence 40,000,000 marks less will have to be raised. This will enable the government to modify tbe proposed taxes, reducing those on tobacco and wine. This is an arrange ment of great importance, as it releases Caprivi from the difficult position in re- 1 gard to the conservatives. Part, of Them ICsoaped. Cape Town, Jan.

AN ACCOMPLISHED FACT The Manchester Ship Canal Completed. A Great Seaport Created at a Single Stroke. It Will Rival Liverpool in Foreign Commerce. A General Raid on Anarchists In France Many Arrests and Seizarea of Im portant Papera — General Forelcn News. By the Associated Press. Manchester, Jan. I.—The great Bhip canal from Eastham to Manchester is now an accomplished fact, and the town of Manchester, situated abont 40 miles from the seaboard, can be reached by sea from New York about 10 hours after arriving at Liverpool. This means the sudden creation of a great port in direct communication with nil parts of the world, close to and partly within the confines of immense commercial city and surrounded by an industrial population of 3,250,000. Besides the actual canal, the docks are of the most extenaive character. The smaller docks and quays and upper reach will be prin cipally occupied by coasting vessels, while in the larger docks wilt be moored ships from the United States, Canada, India, etc. At other docks will be ac commodations for cattle. In fact, Man chester has at a stroke become one oi the largest and most important ports oi tbe United Kingdom. Tbe work is the outcome of a series of long investigations in parliamentary committees in the years 1882, 1884 and 1885. The supporters of the canal who spent £150,001) in obtaining the act were manufacturers and merchants of Man chester, and the principal opponents were the corporations of Liverpool. With tbe use of electric ligbt,Bleamers will be able to navigate by night as well as day, and tins who's length of the canal will be traversed in about 10 hours. Some notion of the capacity of the canal may be drawn when compared with tbe Suez and Amsterdam canals. Tbe minimum width of the bottom of the Suez canal ia 72 feet, and the Am sterdam 88 feet 7 inches, while tbe Manchester baa 120 feet. The minimum depth of tbe Manchester and Suez is 26 feet, and that of Amsterdam 23 feet. A statement signed by 182 steamship owners, possessing more than 1000 steamers with an aggregate of 1,000,000 tons, more than 26 per cent of tti uteamanip tonnage of the United Kingdom, declares the canal will be navigable without difficulty by mer chant steamers of the larger class, and that ii the charge") on the ship canal are not higher than those at other ports (and they are actually less than most) shipowners will at once make use of tbe waterway as soon as open for t •attic, and the additional 3o' 3 miles to Manchester from tbe sea will not in crease the rate of freight charged to Liverpool by merchant Bteamerß for long voyages. It is believed tbe quantity of grain carried over tbe canal will he at least one-balf that is now landed at Liver pool. It is estimated that at least 105, --000 tons per annnm of fruit and vegeta bles will at once be imported to Man chester by this route. Ten large sugar merchants have stated that not less than 300,000 tons oi sugar will pass through the canai. With regard to raw cotton, the firms in the district, owning 18,000, --000 spindles, declare nearly all the cot ton they use will be brought by the canal.lOf outward cargo there will be no lack, and textile manufacturers have testified the belief that about 500,000 tons per annum will be dispatched by tbe new canal. The financial success of the enormous undertaking seems assured. The pro moters of the canal are confident of their ability to secure a very large and remunerative traffic, and the estimates of profit, based upon the capital aa or iginally proposed, were very favorable. The original capital wae £8,000,000. It has, however, grown to nearly double that amount, and the anticipations of profit are not now so sanguine as they formerly were. That there are, how ever, enormous probabilities of traffic cannot be disputed. The canal was formally opened today. The weather was brilliant, and tbe oc casion was made notable in every way possible. TDere was much rejoicing in this city and all jlong tbe line of the canal. The mayors and the corporations of Manchester and Salford started for Latchford and at Mode-Wheel joined the sea vessels which were due at Man chester at 1 o'clock. Great enthusiasm was manifested everywhere. The news papers publish a list of vessels en route to Manchester from New Orleans. The vessels arrived after three hours pas sage, and were cheered by over 100,000 people. FRENCH REDS RAIDED. A General Movement Agalnat Anarchlata In Franc*. Pauls, Jan. I.— The police raided anarchietß' quarters in many towns of France today. They seized the forms and copy for today's edition of the anarcbiat journal, Pere Poinard. They also searched the residence of Elize Rectus, k biother of Paul Rectus, who has been missing Bince the throwing of the bomb in the chamber of deputies. At Havre the police searched 11 houses, seized correspondence and recovered stolen bonds, for the theft of which three anarchists were imprisoned some months ago. Five anarchists were arrested in raids in various towns in the department of Seine Inferieure, including tbecity of Rouen. Gendarmes, with fixed bayonets, surrounded tbe house of an anarchist lecturer in the Hue Vierge, Hreet, and arrested a well known anarchist named Meuniev and three others, together with three women companions. Meunier has already suf ered imprisonment for iomenting atrikee. Five anarchists were arrested at Troy and a quantity of explosives sezed. Five more anarchists were ar rested at Montluoon. Tbe minister of the interior bad or dered tbat a searcb for anarchists should be made simultaneously throughout France. A charged bomb was discovered at Grenoble and 450 cartridges were found at Allier. Fifteen militant Italian anarcbista, all of wbom have criminal recorda, were expelled from Nice. Up to this writing 34 arrests of anarchists in Paris and suburba and 24 at Lyons have been made. Lyons, Jan. I.—The police searched the domiciles of 50 anarchists and made 24 arrests. Much incendiary literature waa seized. The French Consulate Stoned. Genoa, Jan. I.—A few men, appar ently excited by tbe Aiguea Mortea ver dict at Angonleme Saturday, gathered in front of the French consulate and stoned tbe escutcheon over the door. The police dispersed the crowd and ar rested two of the ringleaders. The lormal regrets of tbe municipal author ities at tbe occurrence were conveyed to the French consul. THE HAWAIIAN MUDDLE. THE SENATORIAL INQUIRY TO BEGIN TODAY. Six-Minister Stevens Deliver* an Address at a Banquet. In Which He Savagely Attacks the Adminis tration. Washington, Jan. I.—The senate com mittee investigating tbe alleged irregu larities in tbe diplomatic relations be tween this country and Hawaii, will re sume its sittings tomorrow. It is be lieved it will be possible to have a full committee, and it is presumed hereafter the investigations will proceed regu larly. All who have yet been commu nicated with on tbe subject have signi fied their willingness to come to Wash ington for tbat purpose, without making necessary the resort to the process otf formerly serving subpueneas. It had been expected that ex-Minister Stevenn wonld appear early and give hie testi mony, but ill-health is liable to prevent it. Thus, even with all tbe members off the committee present and prepared to go forward with the work, the inquire may be delayed indefinitely. The com mittee counts an securing tomorrow tbe testimony of Professor Alexander, who is surveyor-general of Hawaii under the provisional government, and a native of the country. He is a eon of missionary parents and naturally a strong supporter of the Dole government. EX-MINISTER STEVENS SrBACS. Pawtockkt, R. 1., Jan. I.—At a b«m quet of the Garfield clnb tonight in- Minister John L. Stevens delivered an address. He declared the return of Queen Liliuokalani to the throne by any outside force, or intimidation by any diplomatic pressure or chicanery, will be a public crime, by whomsoever perpetrated. It would make Hawaii a second Singapore or Hong Kong,. It might be all very well for a British colony, but not adapted to American institutions and not intended for an American form of government. The executive of this great republic has assumed a hostile attitude towr.rd tbe American colony in the Hawaiian islands. When Cleveland's emissary reached the islands last March, thete was no part of tbe United Sta'oea more peaceful, for tbe monarchy wae dead and official corruption bad been put an end to. This same emissary bore letters of credence to representative Ameri cans whom he subsequently stabbed in the back. On the secret testimony of enemies, respectable members of the provisional government were condemned as criminals and in sulted with the promise that when the grossly immoral queen was restored to the throne she would pardon tbum; pardon such men as Chief Justice Judd and Attorney-General Hatch, a son of New Hampshire, and the superior le gally and in every other respect of Sec retary Gresham; pardon such repre sentative men, whose private and offi cial character at no period in their past lives ever had a blot upon them. With sorrow and shame we look upon this sad picture to which we have been brought by the present administration. In the name of a freedom-loving race; in be half of all who love justice and (airplay ; in behalf of Christian civilization in the United States, let us do our duty in en deavoring to put a Btop to this extraor dinary usurpation of power, and stamp out the outrage inflicted upon our pa triotic, devoted and imperilled fellow countrymen of the North Pacific. A LETTER FROM MRS. DOLE. Boulder, Colo., Jan. I.—Under date of December 9th, Mrs. Dole, wife of the president of Hawaii, wrote an in teresting letter to her nepbew, Guy Bennet, of this city, from which an ex tract is taken: "The news of Cleve land's policy for restoring the queen came upon us like a thunderbolt. Ex citement was intense here. Tbe pro visions,! government rose to tbe emer gency in a Bplendid way. I admire their magnificent courage, even while I tremble. They fortified the executive building more strongly and gave out publicly that they would resist attacks from whatever quarter. They are ready to sacrifice their lives in this great cause—the cause of freedom and civi lization in these islands. It all reminds me more than anything of the old .revolutionary times in tbe United States; same spirit and much the same cause. Ia it not good how Cleveland's plan for restoring the queen' on the 10th of Novembei was frustrated and how the great American people have risen up in wrath nod will restrain him I It is aifine thing to do so, and to think of little. Hawaii c&using all this excitement. But there is a tremendous principle involved in the struggle of lreedom and right against the monarch ical tyranny and wrong. It is Brand to see the spirit here. It is believed now tbe people have taken up the cause and we shall be all right. We are boping for good news from con gress by the next steamer." jl PASADENA PASTIMES. !

Informal Opening: of the Mid- Winter Fair. Thousands of Visitors Throng the Exposition Grounds. Chris Etiu Still Enjoying Liberty la the Monntalni —No Word From the Ponuori-The Officers on a Cold Trail. By the Associated Preis. San Francisco, Jan. 1. —After a Christmas week of cool, cloudy weather, which closed with a slight rainfall last night, New Year's day opened clear and pleasant in San Francisco. It was • double holiday here, owing to the fact that the California Midwinter Interna tional exposition opened this morning;, though the opening was purely in formal, the dedicatory exercises having been postponed nntil the main build ings are completed and the exhibits are in place. There were no formal exer cises today, and the only special features i were concerts by tbe midwinter fair band and tbe nnveiling of Sir Francis Drake's monument, tbe "Prayer Book Cross." Besides tbe music and the monument dedication, visitors today had 160 acres oi ground to wander over and auuui 70 buildings and camps to inspect. The people who visited the exposition grounds today were numbered by thou sands. From an early hoar every ear going to Golden Gate park was crowded, and tbe ticket takers at the grounds had difficulty in admitting every person promptly. Mneh enthusiasm was dis played, and there was every indication that the fair had opened informally under most favorable conditions. Hun dreds of flags and standards, represent* ing the various nations of the world, floated from all the bnildings on the grounds. The visitors were eager to sea everything that was to be seen, and the crowds remained on the grounds all day Tbe opening was purely informal. There were no ceremonies of any kind. The fair band played all day, and the big crowd listened to the music and walked abont the grounds. Most of tbe concessions were ready tor business and loud-lunged fellows shouted of the charms of the Turkish dancers, the ' Santa Barbara sea lions, j tbe trained animals, ostrich farm, i '49 camp, Indian cams and others. But the crowd preferred to stay out oi doors and look at the bnildings and the busi ness done by the conceasionists was not heavy. The scenic railway carried a good many people. The total paid ad i missions to the grounds since they were I enclosed is about 19.000, nearly half of i which number were there today. WORKING SECRETLY. No Word From the) Peine In Pnmut' of Etih end Morel. Fresno, Jan. 1. —Sheriff Scott and posße, who are still after Chris Evans and Ed Morel, are still unheard from. Tbe fact that some word has not bean received from them is said to be due tb an order Scott gave tbe posse to keep their work secret from the press, claim ing that tbe bandits make nse of tbe published plans of tbe officers in evad ing them. From this it seems that nothing is likely to be beard from them till they do battle or make a capture or give up the chase. It has now been four days since Chris Evans bid adieu to the Fresno jail officials. During this time bis clever escape has been the principal topic dis cussed, and no phase of the case has been unnoticed. It has now reached the theorist's period and bis ideas ate without number. It has been suggested by some of Evans' supposed friends that be has given the officers tbe dodge and is now many miles from their snowy camp in Sampson's flat. They reason that Evans is too clev9r to think of trying to battle with tbe mountain storms in his condition, and while there is no doakl that be pretended to go up the flume from Sanger, that after darkness Friday evening set in he was met by a fresh team and hnrriedly taken in the opposite direction, do ing his traveling only by night. If it were not that this is tbe view of Evans' friends, it would seem quits probable that it is correct, and that the officers are on a cold trail. The idea most general, however, is that Evans bad a camp and supplies awaiting him in bis familiar mountain rendezvous, ana that he and his com rade Morel are snugly sheltered fioru the mountain storms, while Sheriff Scott and posse are watching every avenue oi escape. hoping that the bandit will run into their clutches in an effort to get out of the storms and secure supplies of food and clothing. Every one commerds sher iff Scott's tactics of keeping his mo\a> ments concealed from the public, yet tbe newspapers would like occasionally to have as much as a telephone message to comment on and keep the public in formed as to the progress of the chase, AlcKinley'e Message.
