A fire waa discovered in the upper win
dows of the New Era flouring mills sit
uated on Chestnut street, Nashville,
Teun. The heat was so intense that
dwelling housea on the other aide of
Chestnut street were smoking, and the
engine at the nearest plug had to be re.
moved to prevent ita being damaged. It
took jiersiacDt and well directed work
to saver tho Naijiiville Canning Company's
works on one side, and the New Era
mills warehouse on the other. The oil
mills seemed in danger at one time, and
one hundred and fifty care on the Louis

would have been burned bad not the yard
master moved them with remarkable ra

the property waa not considered worth

imported frra Mexico, of which 59 out
of every 100 leaves were of the requisite

100 of which leaves weighed leas than a

tax referred to leaf tobacco, and not to
ImIcs, bundles or packages, and that,
therefore, every leaf ahould be rated.
He, therefore, decides thst 69 per cent
of tho invoice was dutiable at 73 cents

There were S00 people on board the

when suddenly a bottle of phosphorus
was thrown from the river on to the
steamer, and instantly after the deck was
enveloped in flames, the lira was quick
ly subdued, but not until it had burned
a hole in the deck twenty feet long and
ten feet wide. A man on the pier volun
teered the information that he had seen a
man throw the bottle on tho steamer. He
poinfcd out the man, who wu rapidly
rowing over tho river. George L. An
drews and Detective Vail, of the Nation

the man. He was caught and taken to
court, where he described himself as
Thomas J. Mooney, 87 years old, of 307
Warren street, Brooklyo. Andrews
charged him with having attempted to
burn the steamship Queen. Capt Ncland,
of the barge Echo, said that he saw
Mooney in the row boat with three bot
tles wrapped up in paper. The captain
asked what was in the bottles, and was
told that it waa whiskey for the officers
of the Queen. When the prisoner was
searched there was found on him a Smith
ft Weston revolver, dagger, new, and a
number of clippings from newspapers re
lative to the fishery question in Canada.
There wu also found upon him a West

tbst he wu born in County Clare, Ire
land, and had been in this country fifteen
years. At one time he wu in the cloth
ing business in Sixteenth street. - When
asked why he tried to ret the ship on fire
he said: "The fact of the matter is!
neither admit nor deny anything till 1
have legal advice. 1 should like to know
if it ia lawful to haul down the American
rlg In Canada, why it is not lawful to
