Dr. Cornelius Ilerz was arrested at midnight last r.isrht on a warrant isued oa demand of the French cov-rnment on the charge of having been fraudulently implicated in Panama swind ling and corruption. The detective as signed to make the arrest went about their work very cautiously, as. although it Mi3 reported that Herz was ick, it was thought that he might be shamming iil necs and word 1 ta!;e an opportunity to escape. It was known tha: Ilerz was at the Takeril e hotel. Bournemouth.

At the alais Bourbon this afternoon M. Anlrieux was the principal object of cmiotity and at every turn he was the center cf a little knot of ceputies who plied him with questions as to Herz. M. Andrieux reiterates his conviction that Ilerz was cot a spy for the triple alliance, but, ns stated in the tiqnro interview, had atnvt-n earnestly to detach Italy from Austro-ilimjenry and Gem any. After Deputy Cierviila Reach had in formed 'the parliamentary comnns-ion of inquiry that he would introduce in tho chamber a bill forbidding recipients of Panama money to alienat.i their estates, M. Andrieux was csl ed upon to throw core liln upon the bribery of 1()4 depu ties, coccrning whom he testified on Dec. 2 . Hm nid t'at he did not have tho original cf th- photoraplied list which he had submitted to the co nmifsion. Tle nau.e cut out .f the list, he euid, was that cd a hiiffi political duniiary. He had promised on h s lionor not to reveal this name, and hs niut persist in tins re fusal. M. Andrieux refused also to give the names mentioned in M. Arton's note bok, on the ground that there was not tu ill iio lit evidence aint the m - n ii'uned and that he did not wih to blacken repat uions ruth!e.Be!y. As to the check, indorsed by M. Davouret. clerk, presumably ae arent for ecnie high per sona'', M. Andrieux said that tie could only refer the commission to the spe ch of M. Kouvier in the chnmOer on the day of his retirement from tlie ministry of finnnce. Itouvier l:ftd obtained Panama money for the purioo of replenishing the teeret s rvi e fund.

Ou the strength of M. Andrieux's testi mony the commission decided to sum mons Deputies La Guerre and Tcrrail Mern eix and Clemencean to appear be fore th?m tomorrow. Atter leavinir the commission M. An drieux passed peveal mintnes in con ver sa ion with Deputies Delay hare and Milievoye, lo whom he reiterated his statements as regards llerz'a loyalty to France and hu efforts to break the triple a Ii nee.

The resolutions in troduced by Congressman Fellows in con gress Wednesday calling for aspecial com mittee of congressmen to investigate the situation of a fairs on the Panama isth mus, the canal, the ownership by the Panama canal company of the stock of the Panama railroad and the expend ture of money has excited local comment in circles interested in Panama affairs, tien. John Newton, president of the Pan ama raüroad, raid today referring to the re-oiution: "A re-olutirn at this time niu8tnpp.gr to every person who has any knowledge of th fact? as very singu lar, the facts being thai the canal was be gun and the railroad stock purchased about the year issi. Here, then, twelve years have eiapaed without the congress of the United States or the national gov ernment apparently taking any note of it until the present resolutions were intro duced. At all events congress and the government has condoned whatever of wrong wap done lor twelve years ami there has been no whisper ahout the Monroe doctrine until now. Is this fairto the citizen of tnia country, many of whom, without learnin oi the high crime they were committing not onlv took service with the Panama railroad com pany hut, worse even than that, wi;h the catul company and ail because our gov ernment h is rested passive and quiescent onder the great wron? which patriots now assure us has been done." nernjnny May Take a ITand.

The building was 1C9 feet long by 73 feet deep. It was used by the merchants of the vicinity for the storage of crtton fabrics. The fire broke out in the Lavement. The bui ding and contents were totally destroyed. The less is estimated at be tween J'.'GO.OOO and r,iX),000. The weet wa 1 fell at 2:45 o'clock and buried üitaen men in tho ruins. The other firemen were -et at work digging them out. The fifteen men are supposed to be dead or ba liy injured. It is impos sible to give the names of the killed as yet. Those known to have been seriously in jured are Pipemen Coyle, Ronald and Mc Carran, all of truck No. 8. When these men were removed from the ruins they were instantly placed in ambulaqcea and hurried away to the hospitals. They präsente 1 a horrible si'ht, and if appearances count foranythingit is doubt ful it any of them wiil recover.

The warning came too lats, for before half of them had reached a place of f'afety ths awful mats of brick and timbers came crahint; down on them. A cry of horror went up from the crowd of spectators. A call was sent for more firemen to hasten to that part of the buihling to aid in dig ng out the un fortunate men. In a lew minutes they had eucceede 1 in rescuing four of truck No. o's men and at this hour are still en gagd in making every eilort to rescue the Luried men.

Th First Biennial Report Submitted to tho General Assembly- Ihe Werk lugs of the Commission rally Shown Corporations Have Come to Time. The first biennial report of the state board of tax commifsionera to the general assembly was issued Friday by the pub lic printer. After reviewing in detail the conditions which lead to the enactment of the law, the opposition which it encount tereJ, and the difficulties met by tbe board in tbe outset in practically admin ieteiing it, the commissioners go on to say that millions of dollars that formerly es caped taxation have been brought upon tax duplicate, 'and an equalization in assessment of property has been reached which is generally conceded to be more equitable than any equalization hereto fore known in the state. In our opinion all that is now needed is an extension and more perfect application of the prin ciples of the new law. In enumerating a few obstacles to a jnst equadty in taxation, which still remain, and which are made all the more conspic uous by the eCort to secure equality, the commissioners la v particular stress on two proposition that no claes of property re ceiving the protection of the government should escape taxation, and particularly none on account of technicalities or inadequacies of legal provisions. One clnss of property standing in ex actly this poaition tbe eoinmi-aionera cited in tue trree;. back currencv, which was ex empted from rtate taxation under a de cision of the United States courts that they are eoverninent ercuritiea. The board urged that it is both unjust and confusing that one kind of money should be exempt from taxation whilo all other kindsof money are taxed, an 1 this in justice is a strong temptaion to many men in poseasion of money to mis represent ite character. That it is notorious that that this te notation has proved po strong that the amount of money claimed to be exs npt as greenbacks is enormously in excess of the entire gren ba"k circulation. The commissioners, in this connection, urgd 'he general asaembly to memorial ize congress to make greenbacks taxable as other money. In the report, after referring to the re 6itence against the operation of the law on the part of the express, telegraph and sleeping car companies, it is suggesteJ that the existing provisions may not be as et ective as they uiiifht be. Lanks and other kindred corporations were before the board cn npp-al, and had a proper as Fes.nment put on their propertv, and yet in the succeeding year secured from their lo al board enormous reductions in valu ation. Tlie commissioners recommended that there be given full power of appeal to the state board from the local assessment of ad corporate property, and of the prop erty of bauks, whether incorporated or not. Such appeal should le allowed to be taken by an am-ed-or. by any member of the county board of reviews or by some limited number of taxpayers, and the de ere on of the state board should be bind ing on local otliciuls. The state board should also be given iIih ri-.'ht to order be fore it thi case of any individual, firm or corporation whenever it has reason to be lieve that the local assessment has not been properly made. Reierence was made to th? joint resolu tion of the state iecis-ature of lS'Jl direct ing the board "to prepare and present to the next general assembly a bill which hall provide for tbe taxation of railroads aud railroad property," embodying a plan bv which "the state nnd local taxes are eprate 1 and each assessed aud collected independently of the other." In this conne tton the commissioners suggested two i lans by which the dteired end might ba accomp ibed. The first is toset aside ior the nse of the state a ceriain per centum of the tax paid by railroads, togth-r with special taxs on certain other classes of pr party, such, for example, a the saloon license tax, the preen: franchise tax, and possibly an in heritance tax or a special income tax. The second ia in alUct a proposition to provide tuw revenues cf the state from a tax on the income of counties, that is to say, to make no direct täte levy on prop erty, but to require each county to pay in to the state treasury a Cxed per ceutaye of all taxes collected bv it. It having been charged that the board had been unfair in the afl-?ment of cor porations and the right of appeal from the board to the courts should be vouch safed. The report suggests that such ap peal rou d be of no practical bvnerit unless the courts should themselves make an assessment of property, which duty could not, under the' constitution, be im poaed on the courts. The commissioners recommended that the date be fixed on the 1st day of March instead of April 1, and the state board should then convene on the second Mon day in July instead of the first Monday in August as at present. In view of the fact that considerable personal property escapee taxation on ac count of the deduction of indebtedness from credits, it was recommended that the fo lowing items be stricken from the scht-du e: "All demands and claims." "all deposits in hanks," "all deposits with O'her corporations," and "ail deposits with individuüs." It was further rrcom rnended that the state board be authorized, at its discretion, to call the county aswess o s together to consult upon uniform va u itions and a uniform administration of the aw in ad respects.

Tb.Kmptl.ns of Cotopaxl in 1877 Described Tividly. fTonth's OupanLa. Mr. Whymper in his new book, "Trav els Among tbe Great Andes of the Equator," speaks of the Cotopaxi as an "ideal volcano." "It is in a state of per petual activity, and has been ever since it has had a place in history." Its activity is irregular, however. The lest great eruption took place in 1877. Early in that year a somewhat unusual degree of activity was noticed, and columns of smoke composed of fine dust, or "volcanic ash" were seen to rise 1.C0O feet above the summit of the mountain. The people of the surrounding country seemed not to have become alarmed until June 25. Then, shortly after mid-day, an immense black column about twice the bight of a cone, or about 18,000 feet, was projected into the air, accompanied by tremendous subterranean bellowing. All night the summit giowea, but in ths merning there was nothing unusual in its appearance till 6 :39 o'clock, when another enormous column rose from the crater. Within an hour and a half it began to grow dark in Quito, and the darkness in creased until at noon it was like mid night. One man told Mr. T'6ymper that he tried to go home, but couid not see bis own door when directly opposite It. An other t-aid that he could not nee his band when it was held cloe to his face. The wind had carried the colon n of dust in a norlherlydirection shrouding the city. The eruption was visible from points at the Boutb. For some time no alarm was U The inhabitants are accustomed to see the mouutain smoking an 1 b. owing oil e team, and even a column of ash several timca higher than usual would not at tract special attention. At 10 o'clock, however, some residents of Mulato were looking at the summit, and al at once saw motten lava pouring through the gaps and notches in the bp of tho crater, bubbling and smoking "like the froth of a pot that suddenly boils over." In a few minutes the mountain was en veloped in smoke and steam and becan e invisible, but out of the darknt-ea a moan inn sound arose which grew into a roar, and a delujr of water, blocka of ice, mud and rocks rushed down, sweeping away everything that lay in its course and leav ing a desert in ita rtar. For a part of its course it i estimated that it traveled at the rats of fifty miles an hour. The scene upon the cone itself must have surpassed anything ever seen by msn.
