Then Chief Templeton telephoned to Omaha for assistance, but for some reason the message was not delivered. The second building of Deere, Wells & Co. was soon attacked, and sparks ignited the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy freight depot. The latter structure 'was saved, but the entire plant of Deere, Wells & Co. was destroyed. The Keystone company's building, on the south, was also badly damaged. How the fire originated is not known, as there was no one in the building after 6 o'clock. A shift in the wind after the second Deere, Wells & Co. building was fired was the only thing .that saved the Burlington freight depot and the big warehouse of the Union Transfer company and Aultman, Miller & Co. The citizens were compelled to battle as best they could with any fire that started in other parts of the city. No very serious damage resulted. By 9 o'clock the fire was well under control and all danger of spreading was over. One fact worthy of note is that the Wells company has often sought the condemnation of the 'Weir-Shugart warehouse, claiming it was a menace to their own. It finally proved to be. GALE ON THE ATLANTIC. Many Vessels la Danger but None Reported Lost. Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 14.—A gale with an average velocity of forty miles an hour and increasing in force raged along the coast from Sandy Hook to Cape Henry last night. Although the heavy blow has been prevailing for nearly sixty hours,'no shipping disasters have been reported. The greatest uneasiness is felt concerning a number of vessels which are thought to be close to the coast, as they will not be able to work off shore in the teeth of the gale. The three-masted schooner Varuna, Capt.St. Oliver, from Darien, Nov. 23, for Philadelphia, with a crew of seven, men and 300,000 feet of lumber, is among those for which there is anxiety. She was last seen off Lookout Dec. 3, The Delaware breakwater .^harbor IB 303 Nov. 1, with increases of 8,000 tons n stocks unsold, but actual consumption is much smaller than the output at present, and prices again declined, No. I anthracite to $13.75; bessemer pig, at Pittsburg, to $12.60, and gray forge to ALLEN O.

Higher prices are expected for ore and coke, and it is believed this will cause, an upward turn in iron. Copper is much demoralized, with large sales of lake at $10.50.

The slow market for goods hinders dealings. Business in cotton has net gained, and print cloths are lower, at 3% cents, while a few more reductions are noted in prices of other goods. The manufacture has a highly profitable season, though dull now. "Failures foV the week have been .338 In .the- 'United States, against 349 last year, and 64 in Canada, against 40 las'; year."
