[ Now Yorlc Herald Cable Special to TUB BED. ] Turning to what I may term the minor incidents , ono of the most painful connected with tlio loss of Admiral Tryon was at the tlmo at which ho must have been lying entombed In his own ship In eighty fathoms of water , his wife , Lady Tryon , was holding at their residence , iu Eaton Place , the first reception of the season. She was indeed still resting from the fatigues of entertaining nn hundred guests when the news was broken to her by her son and brother , Lord Ancaster , the latter himself not being acquainted with the sad circumstances until 10 yesterday morning. Ancaster lost no time in taking his way to Wellington barracks , whcro ho found Sir George's only son , Gcorgo Clement Tryon , lieutenant in the Thltd Grenadier guards. Accompanied by his uncle , tno now fatherless - loss son immediately took his way to his mother's house and broke the news to her. Callers at Lady Tyruii's house today have been very numerous , nnd have included a largo number of naval officers , who strive thus to show their esteem and regard for ono of the most popular of aumlrals in the service. Lady Tyron also received tlio fol lowing telegram from the Gorman emperor , which reached her through the German am bassador hero : Sympathy from Iloynlty. KiKn , Juno 23. Lady Tyron , London : As an admirer nnd friend of Sir George , I hasten to oxpri'ss tny warmest and mobt heartfelt sympathy at the turriblo loss which haa be fallen you. England hns lost ono of her noblest hons. My navy feels and deplores with mo the untimely end of such a brilliant life. We mourn htm us If hu were one of ours. Hay God comfort you. \Vn.i.tAM II , Admlml of the Fl ot. Inquiries were made this morning by the quccii regarding Lady Tyron's health. She also received , through the post , a most sympathetic letter from Prince Louis of Battenbcrrr- Captain Richard Tryon , R. A. , brother of the drowned admiral , is in town staying with his widowed sister-in-law. In the course of an Interview last night ho depre cated any attempt to make positive asser tions as to the cause of the collision , and pointed out the fact that the great depth at which the sunken vessel lies , will , moat Ijrobably , prevent tlio exact nature of the iamago sustained by her over becoming known. Ho inclines to the belief , which is now becoming general among experts , that the entry of the huge volume of water through the terrible rent caused oy the Cam- perdown's ram must at once have sealed the fate of every soul below the decks at the time of the accident. Given mi Imperfect I.I it. It is unfortunate that although what pur- poited to boa full list of tlio officers and seamen saved , arrived at the Admiralty this morning nnd was given out to the public at noon , it should , as a matter of fact , bo far from trustworthy. Such errors us are duo to the difficulties of transmission over the wires and other causes were so apparent that for some tlmo the authoritieshesitated as to whether they should give out the list or not. Every pains was taken by a special staff of clerks to verify the numbers and "so forth , and they checked the list with the greatest caro. It was finally decided , howovcr , to issue the list , oven though It might bo Imperfect. I , as well as tlio majority of thosa who visited the Admiralty today on business , could not avoid being struck by the absence of any crowd of relatives of the subordinate officers , who might naturally huvo been expected to throng the gates in order to learn the news of husbands and fathers. Not oven the usual crowd of sightseers was present. The fact is London is too largo a city for an event of this magnitude to seriously affect Us usual cur-cut of lifo. As to the seamen's relatives , they are , in all probabilities , to bo chiefly found at Portsmouth orChathani. Theories Conccriilii ) ; the Wreck. As regards theories nnd opinions concern ing the exact natura ot the accident , it is noticeable In some of the afternoon papers that the suggestions of various experts of moro or less prominence incline to the opinion , tlio expression of which appeared nlouo in todrfy's-IIornld , to the effect that the ships were probably performing what is [ termed the "gridiron" evolution when they came into collision. I learn that thn flag ofllccr who Is re garded as most likely to succeed Tryon In command of the Mediterranean fleet is Vleo Admiral John O. Hopkins , now commanding ( the North American station , who recently visited Now York in the flagship Blake for the naval roviow. Attention now centers on watertight com partments , nud wonder is expressed that thcso did not keep her nfioat. As explained } , however , in the same former dispatches , tha possession ot those compartments proved , curiously enough , a source of weakness rather than strength. As one naval officer p'lt It to me , she was really capsized by her \vatertlght .compartments. The fact of so large a proportion of midshipmen having bcun drowned , together with Chaplain Mor tis , who was also naval Instructor , points to the taut that they were at school on the lower deck when the collision took place , otherwise the majority of the lads would huvo been on tlcck , and the probability is that us all could | : swim like ( Hicks , most ail would iir.vo been ; caved , fumplo nt London llntorprlie. I * ! Tha Impossibility of getting detail : ) from Byrla about the logs of the Victoria lias driven London papers and news agents to invent particulars of the uttuatlon llko this : "Between 4 and 7 Thursday morning the Victoria , flagship of the British Modi- 11al lerruiu'uu fleet , commander Vice Admiral Tyixm , way rammed by tbo battleship I , flagship ecvud la command , Rear Admiral Markhum. The blow struck the Victoria's starboard sldo forward of the turret. In fifteen minutes she turned oer anil sank , drowning all aboard except thirty-four officers and SGI enlisted , over 400 , Including Tryon. Tlio Catnpcrdown was so seriously injured as to make it necessary for her to bo docked. Friday morning Admiral Markham telegraphed from Tripoli , Syria the foregoing facts to the Admiralty , adding ho should sc.id the survivors to Malta at once to await Instructions. Slnco then ho has telegraphed the names of all the saved persons from the Victoria. " Cnn't Clet Nou-s. No other news hns been received from anyone ono at the tceno of the disaster. The fore going contains all the facts about the col lision , but the public naturally wants to know moro , which there Is no way of getting , except that somebody at Tripoli goes over land and telegraphs up the Syrian coast. There Is nobody to send any news , consequently quently the question of telegraph facilities cuts no figure. If particulars of the way the collision happened could bo had , § 10 a word would bo reckoned cheap by any London paper to pay foran exclusive story. Possibly such nn account may be had on Monday next , but no important London newspaper U pub lished on Sunday nnd the only news agencies , which circulate whatever reports may como tonlglit , behove that no dispatch except from Markham himself , can bo sent from Tilpoll. Markham knows the whole circumstances of the disaster must soon bo Investigated , and serious punishment will bo awarded to any 0110 found culpably negli gent. Ho will , therefore , bo careful not to send an account by wire himself , lest In transmission something may bo omitted or altered to the prejudice of any officers In volved. Equally ho would see that no officer or man wjs allowed to telegraph anything about the accident. It is therefore impos sible for anything further than contained In the dispatches tonight to bo learned from that point. Suys the UctitlU Trlcklo In. I wish to emphasize the foregoing facts to prevent the Herald being misled by dis patches invented in London and Malta. Ono afternoon newspaper says the details of tbo calamity are trickling in , and most of the drowned , it appears were lost by be ing sucked down with the sinking ship. It seems Tryon was aboard the Edinburgh and will bo seen with the fleet , which is ex pected at Malta on Monday. It is Impossible for details to trickle In until some vessels of the fleet reach Malta , about 1,100 or 1'JOO miles away. This may be great enlightenment to the public. Not till then , unless Admiral Markham remains in Tripoli and telegraphs In oxtcnso pai tlc- ulars of the collision , a thing not likely. Meanwhile the inventive geniuses have been working to account for the collision , and the rapidity with which thoVictoria sunk. So long as these productions are given as theory no harm is done , but some of the inventors arc anxious tomuko people think their imagina tive Ideas are facts. So much by way of warning. Facts from the Slcnnl Honk. An officer of high rank in the British navy told mo this afternoon that the signal book provided for six evolutions in-which there were but two having the possibility of such accidents happening and only two. One was the gridiron movement , changing the columns as described in the dispatches this morning ; the other- was the countermarch in single column. In tbo latter a collision could occur only if the leading ship iu turning should completely yaw out of her course Just as ono of the others , going in the opposite direc tion , should also sheer out of line. It seems likely that the two ships met when steering in exactly opposite courses , and the ram of the Camperdown would then have caught the unarmored part of the Victoria's hull and torn it through for a considerable dis tance , ripping a wide gash below tlio water tight compartments. The rush of water through such a hole woulil drown every ono in the forward part of the ship on the star board side , and the injury to the Victoria's stability would turn her over before many of the remaining number of the crew could get out. Campurlnc the Clnisei. In view of this illustration of vulnerability by the enormous weight of armor and guns above the center ol Gravity , I visited today half a dozen leading navy men in London to got their opinions relative to the merits o : big ships llko tlio Victoria and Camperdown compared with swift vessels of greai maneuvering ability like our own Now Yorker or Brooklyn , Lord Charles Bores ford , Admiral Lucas G , R. Bcthell Captain Sir Lambton Louralno und O. H. Arnold Foster , M. P. , wore all visited unsuccessfully. There being no session of Parliament , it was impossible t find ono of these distinguished experts , mot Commander Charles N. Robinson , R. N , associate editor of the Army and Navy Gazette zotto , however. Ho said no gcner.il nnswc to the question could bo given. Dlfferen nations might have different needs. Tor the United .Suites' Needs. "For Great Britain regarded battleship of the largest and most powerful tyia | absolutely lutoly essential. The United States are dlf forently placed from England , " Commando Robinson said , "and perhaps for the prcson docs not need the heaviest class of battle ships. So long as she has no largo amoun of commerce , they might got along with coast defense ships and fast cruisers , but whenever they would build a merchant ma rine , it might become necessary to have battleships to protect it. Even without a large commerce the need of sea fighters of tha front rank might become imperative. If an enemy could only bo kept from capturing the seaports , the United States might bo In continual danger of being harrassed by an uggrcsslvo naval power. Her own protcc- tion might demand that the attack bo re turned on an enemy's main coast. " An American naval officer of command and rank in London , who did not wish his name quoted , said ho thought wo had gene fur enough in the direction of size In our battleships of the Massachusetts class , but hn did not admit that wo could afford to stop building thoin yet. Our cruiser * , par- tlcularly of the Now York typo , would make other nations ncsltato a long time before they went to war with us , but unless wo kept pace with other nations to a certain extent iu battleships , their power would bo- como so much superior to us as to make them tudliTercnt to our cruisers , Some- Minor Kumori.

[ New York Herald Cable Special to TUB BEE. ! Contusion , rank confusion , reigns hero in the political world. To prophesy how the whole tiling will turn out is taking a great risk. Newspapers hero are giving ono opinion on ono page and another on the next. The various parties are maneuvering , haggling and huckstering oae with another , trying to get another turn at the electoral wheel. Experienced poli ticians shrug their shoulders when you ask questions about the situation and reply that they have never known such a condition of affairs before. The general opinion , however - over , is that the military bill will bo pushed through by a small majority. That is the opinion of tlio independent deputies I have seen. "However " said . "wo , ono. must always take account of the chances which might suddenly change the entire scene. Thoccnter does not yet know what to do. Its press organs nro waging a fierce war , one against the other , ana are bringing their heaviest artillery to bear against Caprivi.-- lan guage could bo moro bitter than theirs. Germanla , for instance , calls Its former friend , Count Matusclca , einen uugozoscncn Jungon patron because ho declared for the military bill , and vituperates the deserters from the party. The provincial Catholic press is no less bitter. But behind all this wo scent , now Intrigues. Wo must rcmom ber always that the center strongly desires the retention of Caprivi , and will strive to find a modus vlvondl for his project. Moro Trundle Tor the Chancellor. As for Caprivi himself , ho Is not nearly out of the woods , for even if ho gets the military bill through ho will meet fierce opposition to his much desired Russian treaty from a largo number of representatives of the agriculturists who have been elected to the now Reichstag. It is provable the cen ter will now show Itself bou enfant. To this last statement I received absolute negative. My informant strongly insists the center will not give way a fraction of an inch , ant will remain faithful and not deceive tbo electors. A deputy of the right said ; "Tho whole thing hangs on a thread. Caprlvi's chances uro slim and a delusion is by no means impos siblo. Wo must beware of the center. Its elcctois insist on no surrender. To paralyze this opposition concessions are needed where are they to come from ? The Jesuil law no longer sulllces. Practically the Jesuits are now allowed entrance to the country , although their presence has no received official sanction , and for so small a thing the center will "not risk a conflict wltl Its electors. So do not indulge too much optimism. " C.inrlvl Dellght the Emperor. When I a iked this deputy what the cm peror thought , he replied : "He is enchanted with the tactics of Count von Caprivi , who enjoys his entire confidence. The kaiser overwhelms him with attentions and idcnti lies himself with the chancellor in every way. The kaiser himself feels tired. Tha is why he has gene to Klol to got a changi of air and rest. The socialists have in ni way disturbed him. ilu considers it a delusive lusivo movement. Nevertheless they havi gulncd'ovcr a million votes in the last si : years , and I think the party will numbo fifty in the next session. They uro scconde by the radical anti-Semites , who defy all au thorlty. These latter may obtain twelve t filtccn scats , and will often bo seen march ing hand iu hand with the followers o t Bobcl. " Hpeeoh from the Kalior. I hear from a very reliable source that th speech from the throne , for which the kaiser will return at the end of this month , will beef of capital Importance. 'Iho emperor himself dictates tlio points , and a well known func tionary of the foreign office la charged with editing the text , which the kaiser will look through and correct , according to the man ner in which ho views the situation. The discourse will treat firstly of the military question , but also of the social danger , which is the result of tha recent elections. Tlio reading will take pluco with special ' 1 solemnity. What this special solemnity is , I can scarcely Imagine , for beyond having the usual body guard nud court officials in full uniform , it would seem difficult in the given spuco , which Is the "white room" of the palace , to do moro , The socialists will not attend. It is said that the speech will afterwards bo distribute ! ] and posted up throughout the country. This is the first tlmo since 1STS that a speech from the throne has been pronounced in the summer , The kaiser will specially Identify himself with the policy of the chancellor , whoso ae- lion ho will laud. In the autumn the federal delegates will assemble to consider the question of taxes necessary for the military l Dickering for Seuti. Almost the cntlro serious press Is in veighing against the immoral bartering for scats. To save a few seats the most grotesque " tesque concessions are mailo. Wo find , for Instance , the Israelite Alexander , mayor at Hallo , imploring the friends pf Ahlwurdt ito help him , promising them everything Iu re turn. In Berlin the conservatives vote , for the revolutionary candidate In order to rout their spleen on Prof. Virchow , the freislnnigo candidate. The center wo find treating with ; the socialists , whom they uffec ( to regard as persons from the infernal regions. Iu fact , wo are witnessing a hldoous political spec tacle whcro the absence of convictions and abuse of privileges prevail. Among the latter tit ter perhaps the most edifying Is the virulent attack inado by the StaUburpor Zottung , organ of the anti-Semites , against Stoccker , futjj r of the anti-Scmlto movement. Invective - vectivo and personalities seem to have re placed argument. Thcso elections seem teat prove that politics spoil tbo character that the German people aroiunreliable , and that wo are approaching a igrave ana decisive crisis. Threatened iTlttt > tiimlne. Meantime , In the mliht ot all this politi cal turmoil the frovcrnmcnt has under con. sldcratton the question of what can bo denote to rollovo th < J < * te'rriblo distress existing amongst the agriculturists whoso crops in many parts are dried up and whoso llvo stock Is wasting for w.mt of pasturage. 1 have before mo tho-'ofllcLil statistics of the condition ot the empire which glvo anything but a cheery outlook. Evary- where there is a great struggle against the drouth , which Is the worst Jn If ty years. There Is no hay , and the farmers are forced to sail cattle at nominal prices. In places llko Hesso Iho herds of cattle are decimated by these forced sales. ThU sad condition of affairs has not been overlooked In the polttir-al arena , \Vhero. for instance , the conservative candidates Issued a fly sheet which said the drouth came upon thorn because of the wickedness of voting for the socialists. On the other hand , the prevailing misery has given many votes to the socialists , who by the way still hope to have fifty-IIvo scats In the coining Reichstag. Intnniut Ko\vs lit Plenty. I hear the rumblings of still further dis sensions in the center party. The center may have gained a quantity , but it has lost In the quality of Us talent. It has lost Scorlcmlr.

'A dissension might como on the 'Russian commercial treaty question , and the dictatorial Dr. Llcbcr might share the fate of the autocratic Richter. The latter retorts to tlio attacks upon him and says whatever may bo the cause of the fall of bis party , it was not a question of the military bill , because these of the party who votfcd for the bill hnvobcnn equally routed , which Is quite true. As ono of his party has stated , it Is moro than likely to have been the intimidation of the rural voters , the too abstract party program , and the desertion of the financiers , whoso cham pion Richtcr was , and who In return gave sub stantial support. Russia appears resolved to discount the military bill by a hostile commercial policy. She will shortly publish , a maximum tariff which specially hits Germany. If report bo true , the government hero sees small hope of Its commercial treaty ! materializing. Ciuisml by llH-PollllCH.

' " Ask Hello Plntne , In Inhabitants of the sorely stricken town of Schmicdcmuhl would bo glad to know of an American engineer who can save them from their terrible trouble. They wanted an artesian well , but after they had bored some depth they struck a pocket of water which spouted up so that the whole town is now submerged to the depth of five to seven feet. The water still continues flowing , notwithstanding all efforts to stop itand , the houses are falling in ono after the other. The kaiser lias been disporting himself at Kiel , racing his crack cutter Meteor against his brother Henry's Siren. The Meteoi naturally won easily.

Lieutenant Raymo'nd Rogers of the Paris embassy has passed through cnroute to St. Petersburg. Riolitcr'a Sensatfonal IHitppanninco , The total and totally unexpected collapse of the Richter party seems to bo the key to the situation. When the last Reichstag dissolved Hichte had some sixty followers , and there seemed no reason why ho should not maintain Urn number , all of which counted as vote : against the bill. Richtcr now returns with a party which probably will not exceed twelvo. Even his own seat Is in Jeopardy. His fall even yet seems unoxplainablcas ono of the most remarkable collapses of a politi cal leader and party over known. The government has been exceed ingly lucky , for there Is no doubt but that tlio will of the people is against the bill , but the government has managed to win a largo number of elections by very small 1 majorities , whereas its opponents had very largo ones in the constituencies where they * have won. Should the army bill not pass , an Improba bility , eventually , the Reichstag will be again dissolvoa and now elections will not take place till the utmost limit proscribed by law , so as not to interfere with har vesting , s Tlio government' ' feels Jubilant over tlio prospects of victory , Seeing yesterday's re turns by largo majorities in Frankfort-oil- main , Elborfold nnURollngcn , Minister Mlquel dropped his ' opting paper incog , in Wcin Niedorwalsti'abse.

This evening the minister of the interior , by orders df tie ) kaiser , organized 10a telegraphic service to Kiel giving his majesty the results all through the night. It is feared the socialists may got sixty scats. Among ( ho features up to date is isv that certain rural districts llko Tollow , hitherto represented by the ultra conserva tive , Prince Hanjorry , a friend of the em peror , were wrcstod from him oy the social 1- 1e ists.

GOVERNMENT GAINS Advocates of the Gorman Army Bill Win in the Roballoting , THEIR STRENGTH IN THE NEW REICHSTAG With a Bare Majority Adherents of the , Government Are Content. SOCIALISTS WERE MUCH TOO SANGUINE Their Vote Falls Short of the Number Pro- dieted by Official Organs.

The progress of today's b.v-electlons appears to support the govern ment's ' calculation that the roballoMng will give it slxtyntno seats. Taking the udhcr- ants of the army bill , the government will have in the now Kcichstag lift out of IU7. A bare majority of ono vote is not much to re joice over , yet the government organs ex press content with the result of the voting. In Berlin today phenomenal quiet pre vailed in the Second district , whcro the second end ballot was taken. The national liberals voted for Virchow , the candidate of the radical people's party , and the united strength of the other three parties was not sufficient to defect him. Owing to the voting part of the con servatives in the First district , where a reballot was also necessary , Dr. Lcngerhaus , Richterlto , was first to succeed. Dr. Lcngerhaus polled 8,743 votes , against 0-ifij , cast for Hcrr Tacterow , who stood in the interests of the social democrats. Dr. Langorhaus' election was partly duo to support given him by the national liberals and centrists. Every where the social democrats are polling their last man. A feature of the campaign is the large number of socialists who are assisting the canvass. The Irelsinnigo party is making a strong effort to obtain the ascendancy. Fell Short of Their Calculations. Calculations from the most reliable data , show that the aggregate socialist vote will fall short ot the 2,000,000 predicted by the Vonvaerts and the Cologne Gazette. It is csilmatctl that the vote will show an In crease over that polled In 1SUO. The anti- Semitic vote is calculated at 503,000. Both sections of-the freislnnige party cast a vote of 940,000 , , a loss of 2M.800 votes since 1890. The enormous increase in the anti-Semites accounts lor the failure of the socialists to Breach the figure they expected and the anti- Semites drawing a largo proportion of their gains from parties which would have other wise voted aiffeiently. Chancellor von Caprivi , also when _ speak' ing at the last session of the Reichstag , said that both the anti-Semites and socialists successes came from common sources. The Vorvraerts says the anti-Semitic increase ought to bo placed to the credit of socialism. In an interview today a prominent man said that the government neither antici pated a further dissolution of the Reichstag nor any encroachment on the suffrage. On the contrary , he hoped that an entcndo be tween the political groups would bo ef fected and the army bill speedily passed. How Cupflvl Votcil. Caprivi , Dr. Mlquol and other politico' notables voted for Langcrhaus today. Will this decisive example bcforo them of minis ters actually supporting an opponent of the bill , rather than allow a socialist to return adhesion by electors to government candi dates , where they are opposed by socialists , has become secured. All the ministers voted in the forenoon seas as to allow the voters on the second ballo in the country to note their position. In some districts an exchange ot centrist and socialist votes was encompassed. The Togeblatl nnd other organs demand the resignation of Yirchow. Personally Herr Richter gives no sign o defeat. Ho is cncrgutio and confident of the early reconstruction ot tlio frelslnnigo party , William Wilt Vlow the ItojrulM. The emperor and empress will attend the Cowcs regatta in August. The omporo has written to the prince of Wales regret ting that the opening of the Reichstag wil prevent him from being present at th marrlago of the duke of York and Princess May. It is now stated that the engagement of Princess Alice to the czarowlch Is definitely Bcttlce. The municipal authorities of Motz have voted the sum of f > 00,000 marks for the expense - ponso of the reception of the emperor at the autumn maneuvers. LATUST KKTUItNb.

[ Now York Herald Cabl Special to TUB Buc. ] Public attention ii at present entirely concentrated on the Ml lovoyc-Clemonccau affair , which is now as suming moro ami moro the aspect of friction rather than of an actual event. Norton , tlio negro who is under arrest , confessed yester day that ho forged the documents , all of which are false , but ho asserts that M. 0u- crot , director of the Cocurdo , who Is also under arrest , was hit accomplice in the fraud. It may , however , DO questioned whether Ducrct was acting alone or whether ho was not acting In oDcdlcnco to the political insti gations coming from the extreme radicals. M. Henri Rothc-fort has lost no time in as serting that it was a preconcerted plot ar ranged by M. Constans , One suiplcliiui Oiroumitance. Tills accusation Is ridiculous nnd yet it hns been shown that Norton passed the whole of day bcforo yesterday , while the debate on the affairs was going on iu the Chamber , at the house of a man named Dcc.irtl , who Is notji'lously an ngcnt in the service of M , Constans. M. Mlllovoyo and his friends now admit that they were duped , but they declare that they fell Into a trap prepared by agents of the British government which , as they uro known to bo bluer enemies of England , wished to discredit them by mak ing them appear ridiculous. Tlio Justice , M. Clcmencoau's organ , ex presses the opinion that Norton Is nothing moro than a very skillful thief , who has de ceived all these who have hail anything to do with him. It Is certain , howovcr , that the Incident will huvo u political result , nc It has entirely changed the political situation in Franco , The most noisy of the person ages in public lifo has lost prestige by iv.v son o.f It , and if it proved that tin- friends of M. Constant , huvo played a role in tlio uffjlr with his approval he will lese till that ho gained by his famous speech at Toulouse , Auothor thing is also certain , and that Is that the relations of Franco with England have not becu ameliorated by thlu scandal- out affair , .UcquEB ST.

WakcDcia , at Eighteenth and Pierce streets , togotnci- with n number of adjacent buildings . totally destroyed by Uro at 1 o'clock this , morning. The loss will bo upwards of $100- 000 most of which Is covered by Insurance. The flro was discovered by Officer Edgo- hill , who turned In an alarm from Sixteenth and Lcavcnworth streets. The llrst alarm was heard at exactly 1 o'clock. A general alarm followed. The ll.uncs spread through the Inflammable material with marvelous rapidity and the entire yard was burning by the time the llrst lines of hose were playinff on the flames. The blaze burned fiercely for nn hour , but. at the end of that tlmo was under control. At ono tlmo Itw.is feareu that the wooden build ings on the west side of Eighteenth street would all go , but only two of thornN were seriously damaged. BamdMlomaa liurncil , The residence at 1030 South Eighteenth street , beloncing to Mrs. Augusta Gluubitt. and occupied by her daughter , Mrs. Rmsham , was partially burned , nnd th - furniture was nearly all ruined. The unoccupied - occupied two-story building at 1088- South Eighteenth street was entirely destroyed. It was the property of John. Reese. Mrs. Glaubltt's residence nt 10M. caught fire on the roof , but was extinguishes : , without damage. Mrs. Glauber was Insured , on her buildings , but the Insurance on hei- furniture had run out the day before th fire. She estimates her loss at" (1,000 abort' Insuranro. Mr. Charles It.

It was the prevalent opinion that it had burned under cover ot the building for some time be > fore It was discovered. Page Beckett , th . night watchman , was asleep in the officer when the flro broke out , and narrowly escaped being burned , so rapid was th progress of the flames. Mr. Wakoflold'B. pet bulldog was also in the ofllco and wai burned. Its pitiful whlno could bo hoard above the sound of the flames , and several attempts were made to rescue the animal , but without success. The fire was short lived but was hot whiU it lasted. The firemen's faces were blis. tercel and several lengths of hose were bunt by the Intense heat. Four box cars which were standing on the lumber yard switch were burned. A switch engine made an at. tempt to pull them out but the scorching flumes drove them back. Snvcil the Pinning : Mill. The planing mill of S. M. dunsaul at 1031. 1033 South Eighteenth street haa a narrow escape , but hard work by the firemen saved It from serious damage. Some stables in tht roar were burned , but the contents , includ ing thrco.horses , were saved. The alloy west of Eighteenth street wn piled high with household goods which were tumbled out with moro haste than caro. Ono woman tearfully boratcd tht men who were trying to help her to sav her furniture , claiming that she would rather have It burned than to have it broken to pieces. ' None of the fixtures In the lumber yard ofllco wore saved with the exception of couple of desks. Much of the furniture that * wns Uiltcn from tlio neighboring houses was afterward carried back somewhat the worse ) < $ for the rough handling It had received , Tha Sixteenth street viaduct was crowded with spectators and an officer was sent to move tlio crowd off , us it was fun rod that the Im mense weight combined with the heat from the burning lumber might causa a collapii of ono of the spans. . . iV ASI > THIS I'Ol'E , IIU HollucM Warmly llcoelrri the In < ] - pmulmit Pruluto from New York , ICnpj/riulttcd 1B33 In Jamei Gordon Hen KOMI : , Juno 21 , [ Now York Herald Cablf Special to Tim Ilcu.J Dr , McGlynn should reach New York tomorrow morn ing on the Werra , by which ho came out.
