ROCHESTER, N. Y., April I I. The Mg fire of yesterday is a mem ory ot today, with probably three quarters of it millloii dollars' loss at tendant and a great many homeless people wandering the stree s. Some of the homeless are quar tered in precinct houses and a large 1 number are today In a public school : building A heavy rain set. in and while it helped extinguish the smoul dering fires, it was a hardship on the homeless.

Fifty residences, i he First Re formed church of America, the Ward apartments and First German Lu theran Zion church were destroyed. St. Peter's Presbyterian church was damaged.

Many 1 girls employed in the buildings left , by the fire escapes. The residents were in a great panic during the blaze. Apparently there was but one thought—the city was ' doomed. Women threw from the windows of houses not yet burning, all sorts of furniture and personal belongings. Considerable property thus was needlessly destroyed. From the Palmer building fire the sparks carried a mile and set the First Reformed church ablaze. Lit tle attention was paid to the new fire at first but soon alarms sounded from half a dozen boxes in that vl-, cinity. Chatham. Nassau and Kelly streets are in the Jewish district. It was the last day of the feast of the Pass over. and many of the polish Jews, seeing the pall of smoke and the fire fulling on all sides, interpreted the situation as the sign of the coming of tho Messiah.

Rasor, chief engineer of tlie Tonopah & Tidewater, and Locating Hnginer Vandework of that road, ar rived in Hast Ely yesterday afternoon front a ten day trip southwest front the cantp. The trip was one of reconuoissance, its object being to make comparison of the desirability of the several routes of entry to the camp through the mountain ranges this side of Railroad valley. It was said by the engineers last night that they itad been over the ground with such thoroughness as to enalde them to draw tlnal conclusions from the in formation ohtaiued. They left East Ely Monday a week ago, going out by Ward. Return was by tlie same route. During their ab sence they made inspection of the Murry creek preliminary survey and of much other territory, including Currant creek and other localities, I'nlll they have summarized their findings, however, there will lie noth ing of definite character to give out as to the route of tlie new road on this end. Mr. Rasor leaves this morning for Cherry Creek, a fact that will be considered significant by many in connection with the great deal of talk which has circulated in the last few months concerning construction ol an ore line from Salt Lake by wuy of Deep Creek and Cherry Creek to East Ely. , „ International and l tilted State Smelting interests have been chiefly mentioned in connetion with con struction of this Hue, but the interest of the chief engineer of the Tonopah A: Tidewater In the Cherry Creek vi cinity would seem to justify the coupling of the new road from here to Goldfield with the project, which if carried out would let the Tidewa ter and Santa Ke through to Salt Lake hv a much shorter route than connection with the Northern would enable, while giving the new line ac cess to a big tonnage of ore in Deep Creek country which could, by reason of its desirable character, lie used to, much advantage l»y the smelters at 1,0th this end of the line and at tile Salt Lake end. Locating Engineer Vandework "ill remain at East Ely during the ab sence of Mr. Hasor and spend bis time in gathering further data con cerning the country through which (lie new road will have to build in making Its entry to the camp trom the west. General Manager Ryan of the D nopah W Tidewater Is expected to ar rive during the first part of next week and will meet his engineet in East Ely. where they are legisieied at the Steptoe.

HARMON ON TARIFF Democratic Governor of Ohio is not Pleased | With the Course Con gress is Pursuing I _ DECLARES THAT PRESENT REV I SION is A .MOCKERY AND TRAV ESTY UPON JUSTICE — MUST GET RACK TO JEI'EERSON. NEW YORK. April 14.—“The re ductions in the pending tariff legisla tion form nothing hut mockery of the deinaud for relief," asserted Gov ernor .1 arisen Harmon, of Ohio, in his address at the annual dinner of tlie .National Democratic club at the Ho I te! Savoy. He insisted real relief never would j i>e secured except under a congress and executive finding Jeffersonian rules and treating taxes as a means of public revenue and not of private gain. Governor Harmon protested j strongly against what he termed tiie growing encroachment of special privilege at Washington. insisting that the steady tendency since the civil war has been to exalt the fed eral government at the expense of the state, one result being the neg ] left of economy and the embarkation of the government Into extravagant I enterprises. He instanced tiie action of the last 1 congress in appropriating two billion . of dollars and the raising of salaries i of officials in the face of a growing ! shortage and continued: “Now. instead of seekiug methods | of retrenchment, the pr<>sident and congress are devising additional i taxes to exact from the diminished | means of the people and are pro . posing to issue bonds besides. State I officials who would propose such a course would not dare to go home I to their constituents and would he forever disgraced if they should | take it. “The wage earners, for whom there is the usual show of deep Intel ' est. are not present or represented in j tiie pulling and hauling going on so as to secure the advantages , professed to l»e for them. The in I crease caused by the tariff will mostly go, as it lias always gone, to make ; unnatural profit, for the employer i whose solicitude for his workmen ■ does not even take tiie form of fail division of the spoils "Some luckless interests whose . pull lias grown weaker or has been I overcome by a counter pull like the wood, pulp paper trust, may. with great economy, lie annoluted with the oil of sacrifice for the salvation of the oth£r. but the reductions, when real, will be n mockery of the cry for relief. "It is hardly fair for the Repub licans. at least, to charge with in consistency Democratic congressmen who take a hand in this selfish scram ble. In the last campaign, the Re publican candidate for president openly offered a share of tariff spoil for Democratic voles. When special favors are the order of the day, it Is natural for a representative to think tie ought to secure a share for the lit terests at home. “Why tax the people to Guild a costly canal and secure ships for for eign commerce while a tariff system is maintained to discourage or kill foreign commerce except such as con sists in selling our products abroad for less price than are imposed on our own people What state govern tnent ever committed such folly. “Surely, instead of tiie union dom inating the states which compose it, it would be better far if the states would require from the central gov eminent which their people estab lished and maintained, strict observ auce of the same principles and prat Hoes of economy, fairness and equal ity of rights and benefits w liich have always prevailed in them.
