HALIFAX. N.iS.. Oct. 19.-Th* prosper
ous and thriving town of Sydney. Cape
Breton, was almost swept out of exist

started about 2 o'clock. The flames, which
were fanned by a forty-flve-mlle gale,
swept through the principal business por

finest business buildings are In ashes.
The only thins; that saved the city from
total destruction was a heavy rainstorm,
which set In after dark. The wind de
creased In fury and the firemen and hun
dreds of miners succeeded in getting the
fire under conttol. Over sixty buildings
are In ashes i.rul many more are badiy
scorched. The buildings were nearly all
large wooden structure?, and they burned
so fiercely that It was Imposslbk to save
any of their contents.
Tho flre started In a three-Btory fram<)

the firemen arrived on the scene the
building was burning and the wind wan

Zt Is only, a few weeks since a number
of white Democrats co-operated with
Broker Washington In regard to the ap
pclntme&t of ex -Governor Jones to a va
caacyon the Federal bench in Alabama,
and Washington spoke fpr these white
Democrats when he came to the capital
and assured Roosevelt that Jones would
«coept the appointment and that It would
be satisfactory to all classes.
Washington had seen the President and
had acted as his agent in Interviewing
GoTwnor Jones and others as to the ap
pointment. The Southern Democrats ap
plaofled the appointment of Jones and
they praleed %\ ashington for using his ln
floeac* at the White House to secure such
ea appointment for a Democrat. Then
they all spoke of Washington as a gentle
man of culture and a refined sense to cut
loose frora the Republican leaders of the
negro party In the South and work in har
mony with the best class of the whites.

"President Roosevelt has an absolute
right to eat with any man he may choose

colored men and women call on Mrs.
Roosevelt and dine with the family. He
has the right to have his children asso

The obliteration of the color line In this
case carries with it the possibility of all

it is the purpose of the President to solve
the race question this way he Is welcome

South Carolinian Says Roosevelt Will
To-day the President has received many
mccsagts rrom Southern men urging him
to pay no attention to the "yawp of bour
bon editors" who have not been able to
get over their old habit of. hysterical dis
cussion of "social equality."
Roosevelt visit the South, and If he goes
he will go as a guest of Booker T. Wash

the real leaders of the South, the white
Democrats, do not sympathize with this
hue and cry of Southern editors because
