PARIS. Hay 4. fire broke out at 4 o'clock
this afternoon ID a crowded charitable
bazaar In the Iluo Jcan-Qougon , at which
the Duchess d'UecB antl other well known
patronesses were present. Many people were
burneil to death and there was o terrible
panic , during which a number of persons
wcro Injured.
The building in which the flro broke out
was a temporary structure ot wood. The
names weru llrst discovered above the stall
occupied by the Duchcra d'Uses , mid while
the place was densely crowded. The baraar
la nn annual function presided over by the
leaders of Parisian society.
A terrible panic and crush followed the
alarm of fire. There was a wild rush fet
the exits and the weaker persons were borne
down und trampled upon. The Inflammable
nature of the building and contunlR caused
tin ) flames to spread with great rapidity , and
In acry short.time the bazaar was a mass
of flames.
The bodice of thirty victims of the con
flagration , mostly women were afterwards le-
cou-red and laid out on the sidewalk where
the corpsra forim-d a ghastly spectacle.
Many people , however , are still missing and
It IB feared they are burled In the ruins.
The number of lojured Is greater than
wab at first estimated. Over 100 persons
have boon conveyed to the Hotel du Palais.
In the Cour d'Ln Heine , but many of the
critical cases ha\o been transported to the
hospital acauAon.
A policeman who wan on duty at the doors
of the bazaar says that from l.fiOO to l.SOO
jicoplc wore In the building when the tire
broke out. He adds that the alarm caused
a general panic , follow rd by n terrible rush
I ! < for the doors , which were soon choked with
people , thus preventing the escape of many
who might othciwlBQ have been saved. The
strong tinniplocl upon the weak , the joung
crushed the old to the floor. Heartrending
ing cries of fear arose on all Bides , soon fol
lowed by shrieks ot agony as the flames
avveut onward behind the crowd struggling
for the doois.
Ills managers of the bazaar had arranged
the. stalls BO us to represent a sticet of old
Paris and It was opened jcstcrday.
The proceeds of tne sales nt each stall were
devoted to a separate charity. The stalls
wcro presided over by Mine. Fcvrler , the

LONDON , May 4. 'Iho conespondent of
the Dally Telegraph at Velestlno under date
of Saturday sajs : In the battle here yester
day , which continued throughout the day ,
12,000 Turks made lopeatcd assaults on the
Greek position at the railway junction. They
wore finally driven from the field. The chief
feature of the engagement was a brilliant
ohar.ip of 1 GOO Circassian cavalry , In order
to cipture a field battery , which was sup
polled on each Hank by strong bodies of
Gicck infantry. The Circassians nearly
leached the guns , but swept by a flanking
musketry fire , they were foiced to retreat ,
the battery shelling the reti eating horse
men with such execution that the wheat
fleld were covered with the bodies of men
and horse's. The Greek troops have entirely
recovered their morale , and their splendid
condition shows what able commanders can
do with the tioois. The Greek losses were
chlelly duo to the Infantry force. Very few
of the Turkish shells exploded. The enemy
retreated out of sight toward Larlt > a during
the night. An Inspection of the battlefield
reveals a long line of wheat fields strewn
w Ith corpses. The Turkish attempt to out-
flink fie Greek right proved very disastrous
owing to the murderers musketry fire which
pourel down the slope held by the Infantr )
and Hv/ones. The Turkish cavalry charge
on the Gicek left seemed an act of sheer
mildness for the horsemen had to ascend a
long steep Incline In the face of two strong
Intrenchmcrts of Infantry.

WASHINGTON , May 4. ( Special Tele

as to the manner In which wool , lumber , coa

braska has been In the main well taken can
of by the finance committee of the senate
Upon the question of a duty on beet sugir
Henry T. O\nard said. "The rates are no
quite satisfactory , and beet sugar produceirj
might to have had a little moro protection
\Vo presented a specific schedule to the com
nilttco and asked for the houpe bill with a
half-cent bounty added , 10 per cent to geoff
off each > car. Such a bill would have In
to the speedy development of beet sugar In
duntrlcs. While this bill provides sufllclen
protection for existing factories , It does not
in m/ opinion , supply suaiclent Indiicemcn
for the development of new factories. Th (
house bill with a half-cent added would havi
developed the Industry rapidly on a perma
nent basts. The abrogation of the Hawaiian
treaty la a strong fcatuic of the bill , which
especially commends Itself to mo , as I hai
alv\a3 feaicd serious competition from tha
quartet. "
Chicory Is placed at 2 cents per pound , as
against 3 In the house bill. Straw Is made to
carry a duty of ? l.GO per ton gross weight

W. II. Alexander of the Omaha and Grant

ander made a strong fight to hold the Ding-

for the smelting Interests , Jones of Nevada ,
who has been a miner himself , standing
with his friends.
As to the tax on beer. Increasing the
same Rl'.fc cents per barroll , there Is a ircat
divergency ot opinion. Praise Is heard as
to the omission of the retroactive feature of
the house bill , many senators contending
that it simplifies matters very considerably
Senator Warren reported from the public
building committee Senator Clark's bill to
erect a building at Hvanston , W > o , at a

of today's convention of the American

who were sent by unions of the league , the
chartcrb of which were revoked on account of
their affiliation with the American Federa
tion of Laboi.
Tim conflict between the musicians of the
United Strtcs , assembled today la Kansas
City la a bcw llderlng affair. One faction , the
Now "iork anti-union labor faction , kept the
other , or union labor faction , out of the con
vention , called for police protection , and
then proceeded to adopt a new constitution
to forever bar them out. The union labor
faction v 111 probably oigaulzc another eon-
v cation , claiming to ho the only genuine
\meilcan League of Musicians , and appeals
to the courts may ensue
After tv.o hours of excitement the con
vention of the American League of Musicians
was called to order by President Bremer ,
who Is also president of the Musicians' Mu
tual Protective union of Now York.
The delegates of the Federation of Musi
cians presented themselves for admission ,

or restraining order could not be obtained
They icturi cd dusty nnd angry , to find that
the committee on credentials meanwhile had
made a report seating the delegates from
those unions which had not affiliated with the [
American 1'cderatlon of Labor.
John A. Hlbbaid of Plttsburg was elected
secretary on account of National Secretary

ot senalors and the public. When the senate.
Hnanco commlllce met today the Idea pre
vailed that the bill would bo held In torn-
mllleo for two days. All ( ho members ot
the committee were presxnt. The democrats
examined the bill for ncarlj an hour , making
running comments on It. They announced
that they were against the bill as a w.holo.
Thej teen understood that Senator Jones ot
Nevada was going to vote with the repub
licans , and realized that Ihere was no pos-
slblllly of changing the bill. They hud no
desire to make any factious opposition , and
when a motion was made by the republicans
to put Ihe nucsllon Ihe vote was lakcn
promptly. All the icpubllcans , with Senator
Jones ot Nevada , \otc-d for the motion und
all the democrats voted against it , tlio vote
standing C to 5. Later In the day Senator

beia ot the committee say there Is no btnto-
ment to bo made now as to the bill , the
