Being so near Wull street, the blaze attracted more than MD.OiH) spectators. It took Boo policemen to maintain order. The building burned was an nld-fashioned five story structure overlooking Trinity church. One fireman was cut by fulling glass.

The fire was controlled at S o'clock in the afternoon, having been conlined to the building in which It started. Two-Ma Tarsed la. Closely following the first alarm a "four" was turned In and then, with the warning of the Baltimore fire In mind, a "two-nine." the dreaded general alarm, followed En gine after engine, followed by their hose trucks, water towers and larger trucks, swept clanging down Broadway, the only street of access lo the Ore, bringing in their wake thousands of people to swell the crowd that already packed every Inch of standing room in the vicinity. Bursting hose and a back roll of choking smoke now and then drove them back and aided the police reserves to clear the streets. The fire started In the basement of one of the three express company buildings, which adjoin each other. Kmoke was first seen coming from the flagging of the side walk and almost Immediately flames burst forth, driving employes from their desks and necessitating hurried efforts to stve books and effects. Department Ansrri "Two Maes." For more tnan an hour after the first alarm engines and other apparatus con tinued to sweep down Broadway, the "two-nine" alarm calling out companies from as far north as Harlem, the horses blowing from their eight-mils run. For the first time in years the spectators eaw some of the old-fashioned two-wheel hose reels. which were pressed Into service to bi ing extra hose. About fifty fire companies were on the scene. Trinity church Is just north of the fire and as the crowds began to pack the street ihey overflowed Into the historic old church yard with Its ancient graves and monu ments. ' An attempt was mad to clear them out and lock the gates, but without much success. At the beginning the firemen were handi capped by a very low water pressure. One hydrmit. almost In front of the fire, did not flow at all for fifteen or twenty min utes and a water tower, hurriedly put In action, sent so weak a stream that It hardly reached the building. Meantime the firs escape on the back of the buildings were alive with employes loaded down with books, papers and bags, and now and then a woman employs being bslped down tbs precarious structure. Ths fir occurred la two numbers of a j series of old-fashioned flv-story buildings of the Iron and glass class that was com mon fifteen or twenty years ago. The two burned buildings were on the extreme south of the block, bordered by Exchange alley. On the north these buildings reached to the big sky scraper known as the Empire huirdlng. fron which the tenants were or dered out Just before It was seen that the fire was under control. Hard Work 'ecesnry. Deputy Chief Blnns explained that he turned In the "two nine" alarm in order to get as strong a Torre of tnen as possible at work in the rear of the building, fore seeing that If the blaze was not checked there It would rage until It burned Itsilf out. The character of the neighborhood In the rear Justifies this belief. For several blocks, in fact clear to the Hudson river, Is a mass of very old buildings, many of them used as warehouses and of an extremely Inflammable characur. Once well started there. It Is probable that the fire ou!d have eaten Its way to the river and wharves, ferry docks and other valuable property, that line the river at this point, being Imperiled. The fire Is said to have started In the "Old Horse" Junk room In the building at M Broadway. The building at No. a Broadway was destroyed; 67, M and 63 were scorched and damaged . by water. The American Express company at 6o Bread way and the Adams Express company at 69 Broadway suffered considerable loss by water, but their buildings were not greatly damaged by fire.

NEW ORLEANS, March 2C Challenging its right to exist In Ixuiisiana, Attorney Oeneral Oinn brought suit against the New Orleans Railway company of New Jersey, which is In control of all the street railway properties In New Orleans. The object of the suit Is to prevent the making over to the railway company of leases by local j railroads running up to the date of the ex piratic. n of their franchises.

These eight counties are Lucas. Appanoose, Henry. Page, Jefferson, Wright, Humboldt and 1'nlon. In one other county, Des Moines, the convention split and the Hearst men walked out because It would not In truct for their man.
