OMAHA'S BIG FIRE.
Terrific Exolo3ion artl Fire at tho
From th 15.e.
S.ituidav afternoon ahout o o'clock a
terrific explosion orcurred at the gas
works an I the frighteni-d peiile .or
blocks around rushed into the street to
discover the I milding a moment later a
sheet of flames. Tlie fire alarms were
sent in and in a few minutes all the lire
companies in the city were on the scene
romhattinir the devouring elemcn..
Thousands of people gathered and watch
ed the flames roll near the great tank lu l
of "as the explosion of which would
enta'l teniMe destruction. The two
valves opening into the tank were secure
ly closed and the firemen turned nine
streams of water upon the building and
did all in their power to stay the progress
of the flames. The coutinu d explosion
of gas pipes and '.the ignited escaping
"as made the lire a most dilhcult thing
to fi"ht, and it was over an hour and a
half before the flames were fairly under
Dunn" the course of the fire it was
found necessary to open the tank of
naphtha 0:1 the north side of the build-
in" to prevent it from exploding. The
escaping fluid caught fire and the flames
leaped up in a startling manner, causing
a general -stampede among the spectators.
The ground w here stood a group id hr
men was covered with oil, and iu a mo
ment the men were enveloped in the
flames. Piiieman Cassady, of iNo. 1, was
badly burned, and MeGuire, Patton,
Crowley and Miller of the same company
had their clothes set on "fire and vcre
more or less scorched.
It looked for a while as though the
tank would food be readied by the flames,
but Firemen Mcliride, Grebe, Turner and
Xoonau rushed bravely into the face of
the flames, and after a desperate fight
succeeded in quenching the fire in the es
caping oil. The oil caught fire a second
time and was again extinguished.
By a quarter of 5 tho lire was out, and
half an hour later the workmen were
busy removing the debris and making
preparation to repair the damage done.
It was discovered that the explosion
re.-ulting in the fire was caused by tho
leakage of gas from the generator into
the blow pipes. In the explosion the
blower was torn to pLxvs, but foitunate
ly no workmen were near enough to get
Mr. I?aac IJattin, the superintendent of
the works, hopes to have the damaged
machinery repaired sufficiently by Mon
day to rcume the manufacture of gn.
To economize the present scant supply.
Saturday night the street lamps iu th'
city were not lighted, and shortly afte:
midnight the gai was turned off entirely.
About $20,000 damage was done In

II. A. "Waterman & Son are 'erecting

A portion of the old Boyd packing
house at Omaha is being remodeled and
fixed up for a fuel gas factory. A ca
pacity of 15,000.000 cubic per 24 hours,
is.to be tlic size of the plant. The gas
will be made from water by what is
known as Reinhold Biecklcn's improved
process, which consists, in the main, in
passing super-heated steam into a bed of
incandescent coal, and it is claimed it can
be make for ten per cent less than the
actual cost of of coal, extra of cost of
hauling, etc. This gas is also said to be
superior to natural gas and can be fur
nished cheaper. The company erecting the
plant intend to supply all factories, etc.
in Omaha with it. aud hope to start about
Miss Baker who spoke at the 31. E.
church yesterday experienced a severe
fall caused by a loose board in the side
walk, from which she received some
severe bruises, but we hope no permanent
injury. She was somewhat lame when
she went away this morning. It seems
there should be more care in keeping up
the walks along the main gthorouh fares
of the city. A few more damage suits
may mike the city both poorer and M iser.

11,000 convicts. In July last there w ere
only 7,-1-11. What is also very interesting

point in tho history of crime. Since the

A Military Revolt in China.
The Chinese frontier town of Dub
lashan was a short time ago frightened
by a mililary revolt. Four officers, with
one general, were killed, and three forts
set on fire. The commander-in-chief fled
to the lakes. The panic was indescriba
ble. Although the mutineers had not
touched anybody or anything in the city
the entire population took to flight and
the governor of the neighboring Russian
posts made ready to meet an attack if
the Chinese should pursue the townsfolk.
But they did not. They seized all the
provisions and every cent of money they
could find in the barracks and decamped.
Swiiullcrs of China.
Tlie native merchants of China are said
to be inveterate swindlers. A foreign
dealer at Tientsin recently contracted for
1,500 bales of camel's wool, guaranteed
free from dirt and sand. Whtn the iirst
installment had passed through the clean
ing machine 35 per cent, of its gross
weight was found to be sand and gravel,
and besides that the wool had been wet
to make the dirt stick in and also to make
it heavier. Foreign Letter.
Cutting: California in Two.
A scheme is on foot to make two states out
of California, the lower half to be called Cor

territory. Chicago News.
