Shortly before 10 o'clock lust ovcnlntt nn
ntnrin of tire was turned in from box 23 , ear
ner of Hroailwuy anil Hryanl stronts. The
department responded , but found that the
fire was on South Main street , in the build
ing known ns the "Hod Front , " at the head
of First avenue , owned by Henry Wagner.
The llromon got out In goo.1 shipo , hut were
very slow In reaching the scjno of the fire
owing to thn fnot that the alarm called them
to n box several blocks from the proper
place , nm1m , thn wrong direction
The No. 1 hose was aUo delayed by the
torn up condition of South Main street ,
which Is now obstructed by the ti.ichlayors ,
nml they were compelled to wa'k ' for a dis
tance of two blocks from tholr IIOIMB. LUit
for these unavolil xhle delays the bavs would
tmvo been promptly on hand It Is , porhupj ,
inuci ! better that all luppoiied as It dlil , or
sorinus Injury might have r.MtilteJ , as a
barrel of nil exploded with torritlo forci Just
nt about the lime tiit ! the llremun would
have gotten there under ordinary slrcuui-
Btanct ! : ) , nnd tha burning lluid was thrown
in every direction.
The shock ol the explosion burst out the
windows , and had the lircmen been on hnnd
some of thnm would undoubtedly have been
badly cut or burned by thu falling glass and
blazing oil ,
The Hie wns flnt seen h.v parties passing
down Fourth street , and thuv gave the
alarm. Soon after the lire started there wis
an explosion tn the building , and a man who
happened to he pacing in mint was thrown
to the ground b.y the shock. These who
roauhcd thu spot nt that time niw flames in
the center of the building , but the lire did
notbujstout , until the second crashing ex
plosion , when the llamcs scorned tn leap to
all parts of the building at once , giving rise
to suspicions of incendiarism , but the cause
was soon apparent. Tlio oil spread the
llamcs , setting lire to thn walls , colling and
all parts of the lower lloor , und quickly as
cending to the roof.
The oil was tin own out as far as the mid
dle of the r.ticet and blazed where it fell
it was but a very short time after the de
partment arrived until thu flames were under
control. The heat was so intense that the
telephone wires in front of tne building were
An investigation as to the cause of the fire
revealed the fact that it was undoubtedly
Incendiary , nnd the persons who set It are
evidently these who have been working the
city for some nights past. The most light
was thrown on the subject by the statement
nf a clerk at Mueller's music store , who
sleeps In the store adjoining , lie had but
Just gone to bed and heard some men talking
just under his window niui walking-over a
pile ol broken glass. lie thought they were
merely passing through the alloy , but their
voices had hardly died away when ho heard
an explosion that shook the buildng.
Ho dressed ns hastily/as / possible and hurried
down stalra , but the lla-aies were thun breatt-
ing out at front and at rear. He said that
the explosion seemed like a can of oil of per
haps ton gallons or so. What It really was
will perhaps never In known. Mr. Wagner ,
the owner ot the building , was not soun last
night , and it is not known what the loss will
bo or whether there was any insurance.
The wall of the Kvans building adjoining is
bulged out about a foot and will have to
come down. ThU will effectually settle the
dlsuutcd llro wall question at that spot ,
which has been In dispute for some time
A few minutes alter 11 o'clock another lira
was discovered in the store of I'otor C. Mil
ler , painter and pipar hanger , opposite THIS
BIK : olllco on Pearl street. The lire was dis
covered by Captain Anderson , of the rnur-
chant's police , and Tin ; HUB representative ,
wno were talking just across the street.
They hurst into the door , but the shelves of
wall uapor in the four of the stow were all
ublaio , and there was nothing at hnnd with
which to extinguish. The department turned
out in excellent tune and extinguished the
llro with the Babcock chemicals. This lire
was also the work of a lire bug , but the mys
tery is how he managed to escape , as the
lire was certainly discovered within a half
minute f rain the time it was started , but ha
got away without leaving a clue. The Mil
ler stock was damaged considerable , the
amount of which will closely approximate

'Jho 1'olltloiU Otulook.
The political kettle is getting pretty well
warmed up , and the wire pullers and ward
workers are already getting in their worlc.
To-day the democrats hold their county con
vention , when disappointment will bo the
otof some of the liopaful ones , as them uro
several more candidates than there are
vacnit ofllccs. The ofllces that are to bo
tilled uro treasurer , auditor , sheriff , coroner ,
superintendent of schools , surveyor , two
members of the board of supervisors and
two members of the legislature. It Is gan-
cr'illy ' predicted that the urosont Incumbents
of thu first four ofllcas will bo ronoiuinatod
without much of a light.
So far us it is reported , there Is little or no
competition for any of those ofllces except
sheriff , for which there have boon several
candidates reported. It Is stated in this con
nection , that Shot-ill O'Neill ' will carry too
many guns for his competitors , as hu is
claimed to have about forty of the forty-two
votes from the city delegation , which U
about two-thirds of those nocosi.ir.v to secure -
cure his iioniiu itlon. Is Is also roportoil that
ho will have the solid support of several out
side townships , which will insure his nomi
nation. Democrats and republicans express
tlio belief that all of the pi-esant list of
county oIlIcKIs will be ronominated.
Considerable interest Is felt in the remit
of the race fur county Hiipurvisors. The two
outgoing members S. B. Frutu and C. b ,
Walto aru both republicans , and there is
much speculation us to their successors , as
the board in 1U present membership is re
publican , but the election of ono democratic
member would alter its polklo.il complexion.
Among the democrats mentioned for thu of-
llcu uro A. C. Graham , J , H , Matthews nnd
T. B , Hays , and it Is predicted that the two
nominees will bo selected from the trio , al
though several others are mentioned in that
A prominent democrat , in speaking of the
mutter yesterday , remarked : "Andy Gra
ham is wall lilted for the position. HU
record made during his former membership
of the board shows that fact , hut I am in
clined to think that It would bo harder to
elect him than some others , for this reason :
When ho was on the board before ho inudo
himself obnoxious to certain of thu demo
cratic city officials by cutting in two u great
many of their bills un presented to the board ,
ami they have not forgotten it. They de
feated Sam Underwood last full for the very
sumo thing , and u republican wus elected in
hU place. Uraham did not tulk to suit
tuoui , for when they romountrutod with him
ho boldly told thorn that a tlomoerat'ft bill
would bo cut n * teen ns n republican's , If it
was too largo , Just M long n * ho wns on the
board , They remember this nnd have tht > lr
Jiatchots till sharpened and laid away to piny
cvon with him if he come * up for the same
olllco again. "
For members of tlio loiflslaturo two gentlemen -
mon must bo nominated to till the places of
Representatives Wyman nnd Hnrt , It seems
to bo the general Impression thnt Mr. Wynmu
will be nominated to succeed hlmsolf , nnd
there nra numerous parties whoio claims nro
pressed to succeed the othnr rjtlrlng mem
ber. Among thom nro J. Tomnloton , of
Garner ; .1.1' . Weaver and A. C , Graham , of
HIM city ; Or. Hompstoud. ot Wnvolnnd , and
Wllloiiphby Dye , ot Macedonia. Some of
these gentlemen nro working to secure the
nomination , while others have simply boon
mentioned ns unions possible nominees.
The republican convention will not be hold
until Thursday , nnd In the few days inter
vening before that time , it will bo necessary
for several candidates to duvolopo ,
ns nt present aspirants nro very scarce ,
Thus fnr no ono has been mentioned us n
candidate for ollhor treasurer or member of
the board of supervisors. U is stated thnt
Mr. E. II. O-hlondorf , of this city , will prob
ably receive the nomination for auditor. Mr.
Ohlemlorf is the secretary of the Pottnwat-
tunilo County Farmers Fire Insurance com
pany , and It Is thought he would be solidly
supported by tno farmers throughout the
In regard to the chnnces of n republican
candidate for treasurer , a lender In the re
publican ranks \estcrday expressed himself
ns follows ; "I think that wo can elect a
gooit nut , tn that ofllce , if the democrats
nominate .lohn Tinnier for nnothcr term.
This Is not saving that Pluinor Is not u good
man , for ho is ono of the best oftlelals whoever
over Illlod that oHIco. The trouble Is that
ho has already filled that olllco two terms ,
and it Is a vrry hard thing to elect a man fern
n third no matter how popular he may be.
That will bo the only objection to Plumer ,
hut that , I bollcvo , will provo Bitniulont to
prevent his re-election Ho will undoubtedly
receive the nomination , and for this reason
I want to see u good man run against him , "
The only republicans who uro now really
in the light for the nomination for sheriff
nro said to bo Gus Lxvcnbui-f ; and S. B.
Frum. Lavonburg has boon worklnir hard
for some ttmo. una has traveled all over the
county among the farmers in his own Inter
est , and It is assorted Unit ho will co into the
convention with n force that will astonish
Frum , who has been heretofore regarded as
sure of the nomination. Tlio opinion pre
vails , however , that Frum will In the nom
inee even if it does require a spirited contest
to decide it.
Aspirants for legislative honors have not
ns yut blossomed o'ut in sulllelont numbers to
indicuto thnt there is an unusually lurgo
crop. The only gentleman who is nt all
prominently mentioned in this connection U
Leonard Everett , csq. , the alderman from
the Fourth ward. At the caucus in this
ward Saturday evening , the delegates to the
county convention were instructed to SUD-
port Mr. Evoiett for member of the legisla
ture und S. B. Frum for sheriff , and that is
all that is known of Mr. Everett's ' candidacy.
In view of these facts it is not expected
that either of the conventions will provo
very exciting. This will certainly bo the
case if the primaries hold last week arc any
criterion by which to Judge. They were the
tamest affairs hold in the city for years , and
did not indicate the existence of conflicting
claims that would crouto uhcord in the con
ventions. It is u settled fact , however , that
there will bo u hard-fought and closely con
tested buttle at the polls on the 5th of No
vember and few of tliu nominees will rest
secure m case of mind and perfect confidence
until after the ballots are counted.

A Clmrun Anniversiry.
At the Bethany Baptist church occurred
yesterday the first anniversary of ttio begin
ning of nublic worship under its auspices.
The sermon was preached by tlio pastor ,
Rev. E. N. Harris. Ho chose for his text
"Eben-ezer " "Hitherto hath ,
- , meaning the
Lord helped us , " a name given by Samuel
to a memorial stone which ho set up at Mlz-
peh , as recorded in I Sum. , 13. The
preacher sketched the circumstances which
led to the giving of this names. Israel hud
long been subject to tlio Philistines. At
length they assembled at Mizpoh , the place
of the sanctuary , to pray to Jehovah for de
liverance. Even while they were there , the
Philistines came 'up against thom with a
great host , well arm'jd. ' The children of the
promise wore defenseless , yet God gave their
enemies into their hands , and thus wan begun
a career of national victories which cul
minated in Solomon's glorious reign.
Lessons to ue derived from this incident
are : First , that the foundations of all true
success for tno church are to bo laid In
prayer. The Israelites had como together to
Mizpch to pray. This was the secret of their
Second , reliance is not to bo placod. on
human agencies. The victory comes not by
reason ot strength of arms. When the
Israelites saw the Philistines como against
them , they did not soak to make their de
fense bolter nor to set themselves In more
formidable array. They knew it would bo of
no avail. They simply asked Samuel to pray
more earnestly for them. The hope of the
church of God to-day is not in magnitlcont
edifices , nor in wealth , nor in social influence ,
nor In any like human agencies. It Is in
Third , when God gives the token , his people -
plo should push ou to victory. When the
Israelites saw that God had discomlited the
Philistines , they immediately commenced the
pursuit. Whenever God opjns the w.iy , the
church should bo ready to go forward ut once.
The salient features of interest in the past
yenr's history of the Bothuny Baptist church
were bncllv mentioned. A remarkably
thriving Sunday school bus oeeh maintained ,
the prayer meetings have been deeply
spiritual , friends have been made , a stand
ing in the community has been acquired , and
much good bus been otherwise accomplished.
The anniversary of tlio recognition of this
church is tn be observed socially on Thurs
day of this week , and nt thnt. time Tin : DUE
will give a fuller report of the year's doings.

The Hov. Dr. Phelps occupied tins pulpit in
the First Presbyterian church ye-itorday ut
the morning hour. Tha event was of double
Interest for the reason that ho has just re
turned from u brief vacation and this was
hie lirat uppuaranco since a refreshing re
laxation from his pastoral tios. Thn church
wus well Illlod and these present heard un
eloquent sermon on the nearness und over-
fulthfulnoas of Christ. The sermon wus
based upon thn outburst of John ut Patiuos
.when the vision of the revelation anpsarod
to him ! "Unto Him th > it loved us , und
washed us from our sins In His blooJ , and
hath made us kings and priests unto Hl.i
father , to Him bu glory uid dominion for
ever. " These nro beautiful , Inspiring words.
They do not appaar to have boon studied , for
they ara too warm uud fervent for that.
They uro rather u sudden outburst of Joy
from a heart ten full to contain Its fooling.
It Is the more remarkable in that it is In
writlnv , for outbursts usually occur in
speech , und more remarkable still that it
was written by a very old man , lout , ' past thu
enthusiasm of youth , nearly a hundred years
old. Ho had been banished by the fierce
Uomun persecution from Epucsus to'Patoioi ,
a louoly , rooky Ulaud ot thu .i gean sea.
The nged npostlo wm sitting In his loneliness
on ono of the roclfy Height * of the Isle , In sad
memory inoditnting twhcn thn glorious vision
ho writes nbout wns ouonoil before him.
Quickened by tha/w.u-andorful / visions ho snt
down to xvrlto his closing hook , the book of
Revelations. In tho-outburst Itself no naino
Is given ; no name-'Is needed , It ays , "of
Him that loved us. " Of only one being nro
the subllmo word * off the pimniio truo. No
merely hiiinnt. bcnofActor , no angelic minis-
tcrlng spirit ; notrVtti the Holy Ghost or the
Father In heaven InW washnd us from our
sins with his blood and has made us kings
and priests unto God but the Jesus of Beth
lehem , of Calvary , the nscondcd , enthroned ,
nil-powerful Son of God. Bo has done this
for us , nnd unto Hint * bo glory nnd dominion
forever and over. John evidently cherished
n peculiar love for Jesus ns distinguished
from the others of the Trinity. Ho spoke of
the Father with no manifest umotion , nnd
the sumo of the Holy Ghost , but when ho
cnmo to speak of JUSIIK ho burst
out In sublime words of love nnd
prnlso. It ( s not strnngo thnt ho should huvo
loved Jesus pccuilurly , for ho had been with
Him during the three years of his ministry ,
und had scon so much of the peerless beauty
of His character , and had been more inti
mate with Him than any of the others , had
leaned on His breast and become to bo known
ns the disciple whom Jesus loved , It is not
strange that John loved Jesus. Tlio same
distinguishing love of the Saviour is true of
nil his people. It Is not strange or wrong.
Ho beautifies our natures , Ho calls us
brethren ; even in His glory wo mo made
ono with Him. Wo are relying upon His
atonement , praying in His numo and depend
ing upon Ills gruc3 niMl providence.1. Thu
Greek word rendered , love is n present par
ticiple. It Indicates not an net , but un utti-
ttulo. The attitude Is not for nny brief
period , but for eternity. Uoforo the world
was. Ho hud the puiposo to
create us. Ho spent millions of years
In prcnarini ; this world for our abode ,
thoh liu created us witli nil the possibilities
of our natures , with nil the Immeasurable
sources for Joy and good It was all in love
thnt Ho created us. Ho foreknow our full by
sin , and made provisions for redemption
from It even though It was lo cost His own
humllution and death. It was hi Uivo Ho re
vealed his coming 40t)0 ) years beforehand.
It wus in love Ho cnuie , wrought , suffered
nnd died und rose from the tomb. Ho has
loved us over since , und will forever more.
His love is nlso unparalleled , not only In du
ration , but in all other characteristics. Ho
docs not love ua collectively , b Jt personally ,
Just as u parent cnnnot love his family us a
whole but each as a distinct person.
The atonement Is a work of lovo. Ho was
not compelled to do it by any obligation of
the moral nature , ns some have claimed.
Jesus saw our ruin , Ho could save us , and
Ho alone , and therefore Ho felt the obliga
tion to do it. There was no higher than Ho
to whom He could be responsible , nor could
the resnonslblltv have rented on Him more
than on the Fnthcr , or the Spirit , and they
did not uavo as as lie did. Nor a
was it undertaken by Jesus that ho might
enhance His glory thereby. Ho ha'l all the
glorv of the Divine Being , all His works and
all Ills angels tn praise Him. Even our de
struction would have boon to His glory. Ho
saved us because Ho loved us. It w.u real
love , deep , soul-moving , eternal nud un
Wo are sinners , nnd sin Is the bine of our
being. All our sufferings , our sorrows , our
failures , the fear nnd sting of death , the
fear of Judgment and the dreadful repara
tion of God arc duo to it. Sin is a fact that
must bo gotten out of the way or wa can not
have neaeo or ovorlastiiiK life. Christ could
not ignore it and save * us.
Throughout all the ages that have past ,
all that are to come , Christ's love has
been changeless and will bo ondurin ? unto
