Iloiiae Where Turkish Parliament
Meets Destroyed by Fire?-Loss Is
Well Into Millions.
Constantinople, Jan. 19.?The pal?
ace of Cherlgan, where the Turkish
parliament meets, was entirely ce
stroyed by fire today. The loss is
great, as the building alone cost
about $16,000,000. The fire originat?
ed between the private apartment re?
served for the sultan and the cham?
ber of deputies and is believed to
have been due to defective heating
apparatus, although there have been
reports current that reactionary ga?
rnets were responsible for It.
The fire started shortly before noon
and a strong wind fanned the flames,
which spread with great rapidity.
Little furniture and very few- of the
Important documents were saved.
Practically all of the archives of the
department of deputies, including 60
bills and the budget estimates, were

charter, and as an evidence of good
faith subscriptions to a large p>rtion
