IS.—Fire broke out yesterday morning in the double six-story stone business block at 188 to 194 Market street, and before the flame's were extinguished a loss of over $300,000 had been entailed, five firms had been driven into thestreets,another suffered severely from water, and two men were slightly injured. The flames did not communicate with the upper stories through the floors, for these are not eacen away in a single place, they did not find their way up the stairs, for these are marble and untarnished by fire, and the elevator shaft shows no sign of fire. The only explanation at present is that they burst through the outer -windows of the third floor, leaped upward, and story by story jumped into the floors above, destroying all the contents. The building- belonged to M. A. Ryerson, and besides him the losers aro L. C. "Wachsmuth & Co., wholesale clothiers, $100,000; fully insured; Louis I W.

Bashing-ton, Ja;i. 18. — Features ol yi^sterda.y's proceedings in the senate wen; the speech delivered by Wolcott of Colorado, chairman of the bimetallic commission, upon the negotiations C'l the commission with European countries relative to international bimetallism, and the passage o£ the Lodge bill restricting immigration into the United States. The proceedings were ttie most interesting and important that have characterized any Ingle day's work of the senate during the present session. In anticipation ot them the galleries were crowded at an hour. Quite unexpectedly Hanna appeared at the opening of the session. Foraker, the senior senator from Ohio, presented Hanna'.s credentials for the remainder of Sherman's term. Foraker escorted his colleague to the deskwhere Vice-President Hooart administered the oath. At the conclusion of the morning business Wolcott began his address and at its conclusion he was surrounded and warmly congratulated by his Republican colleagues. Spoouter'a Two Amendments Adopted. The immigration bill was then taken up and discussed until 3 o'clock, the hour at which, by previous agreement It had been arranged to vote finally upon the amendments and the bill. An amendment offered by Spooner of Wisconsin, providing that the ability on. the part, of the Immigrant either to read or: to write should be accepted as a sufficient testof hlsliteracy was adopted by a vote of 42 to 22. Another amendment by Spooner, providing that the members of the family accompanying an immigrant rejected under the conditions ol the bill should be returned to the country whence they came by the steamship company was also adopted. Other efforts were made to amend the measure, but failed. The bill was then passed by a vote of 45 to 28. Provisions ortlic Bill us Passed. The bill as passed provides that all . "He is an unpatriotic Aroerlcaii citizen." [Applause on the Democratic side.] Grosvenor recalled the fact thatSelig- man with the credit of his house rendered invaluable aid to the TJiiion cause during the war. To this Lewis replied with the statement that Seligman had removed his residence from this country at a time when he feared the income tax law would compel him to pay his share to the support of the government. "He Is the last man," he said, "whom I should take pride in calling an American citizen." WOLCOTT REPORTS OX HIS MISSIOX. Chairman of the Silver JEnvoj's Explain* How He Found Things. Washington, Jan. IS. — Senator Wol- cott'a address to the senate yesterday giving an account of his mission to Europe in behalf of silver was listened to with greiLt attention by the senate. He reviewed the history of the commission and told what it had done, facts that have been presented heretofore in these dispatches. Some months ago a special stated that when Wolcott sjnoke he would show an intense hatred, for the British because they had treated him so badly. Yesterday one of the first things Wolcott did was to declare — not alluding at all in words to the special — that he had been treated as well as he could possibly have desired. Wolcott enumerated the obstacles .vith which the commission had to contend — the> fall in the price of silver, the coincident tariff legislation and the statements of New York bankers in England, who assured everybody that Bimetallism was a dead issue in Amerca. Letters and interviews said to Riotous Proceedings at Paris, Nantes, Lyons, Marseilles Against the Hebrews.

Night of "Qni Vive"* —Struggle Between Student* and Anarchists at the Tivoli Vaux Hall—Mnch Go«- In Spilled, but No One Is Killed. Paris. Jan. IS.—A great anti-Dreyfus and anti-Semite meeting last night at the Tivoli ,Vaux. hall produced! extraordinary scenes.-''- The neighborhood was paraded by police mounted and on foot, and the rapidly growing crowd increased the excitement. On the open- Ing of the meeting the hall was a, seething sea ot humanity, crowding every part, gesticulating, shouting "A bas Zola," "Vive le Artnee and "Vive la. revolution sociale." The members of the anti-Semite committee displayed banners bearing the inscription "Death to the Jews" and other inscriptions. It was soon seen that the 5,000 present consisted largely of anarchists and of others bent on opposing the students. On M. Guerin, the president, proposing that the honorary presidency be conferred upon M. Rochefort and M. Dru- immigrants physically capable and over 16 yean; of age shall be able to read or write the Engiisn language, or some either language; but a person not able to read or write, who is over 50 years of age, and is the parent or grandparent of a qualified immigrant over 21 years of age and capable of supporting such a parent or errand-parent, may accompany the immigrant, or the parent or grandparent may be sent for and come to join the family of the child or grandchild over 21 years of age qualified under the law, and wife or minor child not abie to read or write may accompany or be :>ent for and come to join the husband or parent who is of the treasury had been quoted to show tha.t bimetallism was dead—these interviews and letters were, Wolcott trusted, forgeries. But he quoted the president and secretary as being absolutely in opposition to each other on the money question, the president being, Wolcott said, a sincere friend of bimetallism, while Gage was on record for the single gold standard. He summarized the present situation by'saying that it was, for the present, impossible to count on any co-operation from Great Britain toward a bimetallic agreement, and that France, while friendly to the project, insists on united action by several other great nations. He announced his intention of retiring from the commission and said that it might be necessary, in future bimetallic considerations, to change the ratio from 16 to 1 to 20 to I The newspapers of London, however, were, he said, dominated by the banking power and showed marked hostility to the propositions advanced by the commission. He wound up with a vigorous appeal for faith in silver. ( • - J<JIU LJie ILUfjUetLl'l tji jja-LKI.!*. vv llu 13 & Co., cotton goods; E. H. Popper, qualified.

IS.—An accident took place at the Fairview tunnel, about nine miles west of here, in which one man was killed and another probably fatally injured. A number of others had an almost miraculous escape. Sparks from the engine of Sunday's passenger train No. 1 ignited the timbers in the roof of the tunnel. Men fought the flames all night and all day yesterday. About 2 p. m., when the flames were all but out, "the men were alarmed by a loud crash. In another moment a solid mass ot rock and burning timbers came falling down, Roadmaster Lyons and Foreman Matthew's were "caught under the mass of rock and timbers. They were soon taken out, but" Lyons died in a few minutes and it is not believed Matthews will live. No through trains will pass through the tunnel for several days, as it is a sheet of fire from one end to the other. Statne of Gor. Austin Blair. Grand Rapids, Mich..

Washington, Jan. IS.—Yesterday wa* Dtetric'1 of Columbia day in the house, but only three bills of local importance were passed. The-remainder of the session was devoted ;to further consideration of the army appropriation bill. The debate wa? particularly notable for a vigorous speech by McClellan of New York, a son of General George B. Mc- CU'lIan, attacking the present army organization as obsolete and inefficient. He asserted that we were wofully unprepared for war should a crisis come and contended for modern methods in organisation, equipment and supplies, which Wuld enable the United States to meet an emergency. Lewis of Washington also made a. speech that attracted attention, in denunciation of trusts, •.rhich he declared were threatening the Iibertit-s of the country. The consideration of the army appropriation bill was net completed. Lewis' speech was the feature of the session and wasquite sensational. Lewis made something of an innova- tation by taking his position in the area in front of the speaker's rostrum and speaking to the house fact to face, as to a congregation. He charged that the trusts were in control of the country and constituted the "mailed hand of power" behind the decrees of the courts. If the army were increased the people would, he said, be justified in asking whether it was not to be used to barricade the courts and break down everything that means freedom of the. government. He quoted a telegram which he said Hanna had received from Frankfort,. Germany, signed by A. Seligrnan as follows: "I congratulate you on 3-our election. It is most satisfactory to me." That message, he said, came from the man who helped to place a mortgage on this government of $200,000,000. Its insolence had no parallel in history save the message sent by Pontius Pilate to the executioner of Jtsus Christ, congratulating him that his work was well done. Grosvenor interrupted to ask if Lcwia was aware- that Seligman -was an citizen. "I. acx" res»ondc<, law Principle Laid Down. Washington, Jan. 18.—Secretary Bliss has approved an important decision in the homestead land case of Porcher.vs. Gillen, from, the Wausau land district Wisconsin.

Consulate Vacated by Death. Washington. Jan. IS.—Consul General Gudgeon at Panama ca.bled the state department yesterday announcing tho drowning of William Ashby, United States consul at Colon. Ashby was ap-. pointed to office only a. few months ago, and had been well known in this city and Virginia as a newspaper man, connected with the Norfolk, Va,, newspapers. M:rs. I^ane Xot Badly Wounded, Washington, Jan. 1$.—The improvement in Mrs. Lane's condition is so great, that doctors announce that she will be entirely out of danger and able to sit up in three or four days. They have not attempted to probe for the bullet and will not do so for sometime unless it should develop that its presence was injurious to the injured, woman. I*ook for Yeilow Fever in the Spring:. Washington, Jan. IS.—Surgeon General Wyman is informed by Surgeon Murray, at Mobile, that there was a, death 1'rom yellow fever at Whistler,. Ala., as recently as eighteen days ago, A fatal case occurred there on Dec. 27. mont. a great uproar ensued, the anarchists trying to wrench the banners from the anti-Semite. Scufflles took place in which two of the officials were injured. Soon Develops Into a Free Fig-lit. M. Thiebaud delivered an address denouncing the Jews, and urging- the meeting to support the government. Tumult and fights for the banners continued, with shouting, whistling and sing-ing of the "Marseillaise" and the "Carmagnole," while M. Thiebaud proceeded in a violent speech, declaring that the Dreyfus scandal was the commencement of a social revolution by a "band of scoundrels desiring to overthrow everything in order to raise a traiior." The scene now became a. saturnalia. The anarchists removed the iron staircase Riving- access to the tribune, so that the committee was unable to descend. Free fights began around the lias's. Finally the students chasied the anarchists out of the hall. The organizers of the meeting then seized the Hags decorating the hall, and arranged a render.vous at the Military- club, crying "Vive I'armee." Somebody Hud T;ij>j*ed tlm Claret. The hall partially emptied, but soon the anarchists returned, and breaking upon the great doors began further fighting. It is alleged that several were injured. Finally the students were vanquished ad the anarchists 1 masters of ' the situation. The meeting- broke up and the anarchists replaced the ladder and invaded the tribune, led by M. Curtois flourishing a. red flag, and all shouting "Conspuez Rochefo*t" (Spit upon Rochefbrt). aad "Long live Zola.'' The disturbances continued, the anarchists declaiming from the tribune against the army, and acclaiming Dreyfus.
