WASHINGTON , March iX The deferred dis
play of fireworks from the monument
grounds to-night was undoubtedly the most
brilliant over witnessed in Washington.
The exhibition began with an illumination of
Pennsylvania avcnuo from the treasury de
partment to the capital , a distance of over
ono mile , IU.Y menns of magnesium suns.
The night was uncommonly dark , nnd the
rcat white shaft of the Washington monument
ment afforded a background the peer of
which ran hardly bo found in the world.
The Jlrst sot displayed were portraits
traits of Piesident Harrison and
Vice President Morton , framed in
brilliant colors and rusting upon an easel
So llfo like were these portraits that at tlio
distance of n mlle each was readily recog
nized. Following these came marvelous
fountains of sparkling electric stars , myriads
of tlyluir rockets in every conceivable tint ,
bombs which , bursting hundreds of feet In
the- air , discharged n thousand smaller shells
which In turn exploded , producing a grandly
beautiful effect , and then bontlrcs of colored
light which , rellectlnv thnir rays on the
great white oucllsk , transformed It
iuto n shaft of burnished brass
and again into one of emerald
nnd sapphire , while the towering structure
was vividly outlined against a sky of Intense
black. Another set pictured the south front
of the wbito house , every detail of pillar nnd
capital , window and carved cornlco npuear-
Ing with perfect distinctness. The last of
the set pieces represented the capitol. The
closing scene of the exhibition was indeed a
gorgeously brilliant ono. Tens of thousands
of blue rockets , exploded by electricity ,
shot up from tbo base of the monument to
its summit. Thousands of others iu yellow ,
scarlet , green and purple followed in quick
succession , until the whole sky was ntlumo
with scentillattng stars of wondrous hues.
This great eruption continued for some time.

Capitalists Want tlio Common Herd
to list Them Alone.
BOSTON , Mass. , March 6. [ Special Tele
gram to Tim Bun. | The } bill submitted to
the legislature , requiring that the state as
sume supervision over alf real estate mort
gage companies Incorporated in other states ,
and bo subject to examination by a suitable
commission , has created 'much excitement
and discussion among the humorous western
companies having their offices m Massa
'
chusetts. } .
To-day the legislative committee on banks
and banking gave n hearing which was
largely attended. A' nUmber of capitalists
appeared in favor of thopVoposcd IcgUlatioq ,
'
to which the principal abjections were by th'a
Jarvis-Conklin Mortgage nnd Trust com
pany and the Lombard rnrstinM > tcompanies
of Kansas City , nn < J tlfe"'Shbwullor com
pany. Joseph Jacobs , of the Lom
bard company , contended that such
legislation was unnecessary. 'Ho
defended the business1 from a charge
of loss , saying there were millions lost yearly
on railroad securities without causing com
ment , to which the loss on mortgages was a
nonentity. It would also bring a great ex
pense to the sUite , an the property held \vas
distributed all over the union.
The Jarvis-Conklin company's agent stated
that it was unnecessary ; that all the other
states accepted the inspection imposed by the
laws of Missouri , and Massachusetts should
De satisfied with that. The Showaltor com
pany said it had nothing to hide from the'
state but did not think it was any of the
state's business.
Friends of the bill contended that capital
of citizens of the state was solicited
by institutions existing by suffrage of
the state , who should in consequence bo
the guarnnteoof their honesty. Land spocu
lution und an easy condition of money in the
west was making the companies careless ,
nnd n , number of bad Investments were cited.
This the companies denied and the hearing
was continued.

Flanagan and Allison wuro unable to oscnpo.
When ttio lire broke out ix do/on or inora

unable to escape nnd undoubtedly perished.
Watchman Flanagan was found lying un

life and limb in coupling and uncoupling
freight cars ; and further , In what way tha
growth of the system of heating pabseiiRO
cars from the locomotive or other slngl
sources can bn promoted , to the end that th
