Death of Thomas Bayard-Fear Sew
Monitors-Other 5ewi of Interest.
Colorado Hi-aixoa, Colo, Oct Thia
city had a visitation of fire thia afternoon
which threatened tor four hours to des
troy the fintiro bunineas district.
The wind wai blowing at the rate of
45 miles an hour from the southwest
when the fire started at the Denver &
Hio Grande freight depot, at the foot of
Cucharis street, at 2:10 p. m., and the
flames spread with (feat rapidity. A
strip four Mocks loiitf from north to
south, and two blocks wide from east to
weit, has been burned over, but at this
hour, the con fl aitrat ion U believed to be
under control. The flames are still leaV
In high over the burnt district, but the
wind has died down, and there is no
doubt that the fire engines, which have
come from Denver and 1'ueblo in re
sponse to appeals for aid, will be able to
confine the flames within the present
The A tillers hotel, one of the largest In
the West, three lumber yards and two
blocks of buaineaa houies have been des
troyed. In round number the low is es
timated at 11,000,0000, and insurance at
one half of that amount.
The fire started in a pile of rubbish
underneath the plB'fortnof the Denver A
Kio liranda freight depot. Within five
minutes it had communicated to freight
cars standing at (lie depot, and it -pread
so r,iji.!y tint it was imiioseihle to
inovfl any of th j rar. Ila'f a ear of

hundreds of feet, and the wonder is that
loliody was K.j'.lrtd.
Then can;t the li-niole daiuer to the
city, (irent chunks of (lie we.a scat

CiieySt Fowler lumber yards, 500 feet
away, were burtiimt. The wind wj

For a time after this it looked as if the
Antlers hotel inirfbt be saved, but the
heat was too great, and there was not
water enough to send a stream half up
tlio building. At lour o clock it was
burning on the south end, and the fa
mous hotel was doomed.
Tha colored employes of the hostelry
showed great intrepidity in climbing out
ol the upper windows in the face of an
infernal heat and pouring water upon
the fire through a small hose. They
left their posts only after they became
positively untenable. Down below, the
firemen were also directing streams upon
the buildings, but the water pressure
bad become so reduced that the streams
were of little effect. The contour of the
buildings, the upper stories of which
were of wood, served to make a suc
cession of smokestacks along the sides,
and it was but a few moments until the
flames were leaping from nearly every
window. The building had stood for a
long time against the tremendous heat.
The flames rose higher and higher and
soon the outlines of the stone were seen
with the woodwork burning awav with
them. Here and there little blue
flames shot up w here the. copper cornices
It took ahoul two hours for the hotel
to hum, and it made a tremendously
hot fire. The walls bejuu to fall after
the huildint; had been burning perhaps
an hour, and they went down with an
awful roar. The smokestacks remained
for a long lime, and some are standing
yet. The Antlers Annex was quickly in
flames, and went up rapidly.
Two or three explosions were heard
while the Antlers was burning, and
these are supposed to have come from
the boilers. All of the Antlers' people
from the engineers tothe bellboys, stayed
at their posts until they could stay no
longer. At 6 o'clock all that was left of
the once beautiful Antlers was a mass of
blazing debris. Thousands gazed upon
it with sorrow and regret, as it was uni
versally conceded to be the chief orna
ment of the town.
The Antlers was a beautiful six-story
building, owned by the Colorado Springs
Hotel Company, in which General Pal
mer was heavily interested. The lessee
proper was E. Burnett. The building
was insured fori 200,000, and the furni
ture, valued at $lii7,500, was Insured for
if-Sl.500. The building and its contents
are almost a total loss. The hotel will

THOMAS FRANII1 HA YARD IK4D.
The Klatlngnlahed Statoamaa and
Dkdimm, Mass., Sept. 28 Thomas
Francis Bayard, the distinguished states
man and diplomat, died at Ralatein, the
summer lesidence of bis daughter, Mrs.
Samual D. Warren, in this citv. on
Wednesday after an illness of six weeks.
He suffered little pain daring bis last
days, his deatb being due to a general
breaking down incident to age. Mr.
Bayards was a member of an eminent
family. Since long before the the Revo
lutionary War times the Bayards have
been conspicaous in the country's his
tory as patriots and statesmen, and
many acquired national fame as jurist.
Four members of the Bayard family
havs had senatorial honors bestowed
them by the little State of Delaware
Thomas Francis Bayard; bis father,
James Asheton Bayard ; his grandfather,
of the same name, the negotiator of the
treaty of Ghent; and bis uncle, Richard
Henry Bayard. He was born in Wil
mington, Del., October 29, 1828, and at
the age of twenty-three was admitted to
the oar. In 1SC8 he was elected to suc
ceed bis father in the United States
Senate, and was subsequently tice re
elected. It is noteworthy that on the
dav he was elected to the Senate fjr the
full term, his father, who had resigned,
was al re-ele -ted a sen.it ur from Dela
ware to serve fur the unexpired part of
his original term. When the Deumcra j
tic National Convention was held in
1SSD, his friends rallied in force to secure
his nomination for the Presidency. On
the first ballot he titood next to Hancock,
who was nominated on the second. In
the Democratic convention of 18"4, at
which Cleveland was nominated, Bayard
became Cleveland's Secretary of State,
and at the close of the administration
returned to private life and to his legal
profession. In lHi'3, when Cleveland
camu into office again. Bayard was sent
to the court of St. James an? served un

Washixotox, Oct 1. Bids were opened
at the navy department today for four
harbor-defense vessels, of the monitor
type, authorized by congress at an ex
penditure of $1,250,000 for each monitor.
Four per cent allowance was made in
favor of the Pacific coast builders.
The monitors are to be built strictly in
accordance with the department's de
aigas. In type they have no duplicates
in modern ship construction, and more
(ban anything else resemble tbe little
monitors which distinguished themselves
in the Civil war, but are vastly superior
in actual power. Their usefulness will
be stiictly limited to coast defense.
Their speed will be 12 knots, about
double that of tne old vessels.
Their batteries will consist of two 12
inch breech-loading rifles, capable of
piercing the sides of nine-tenths of the
naval vesoels of the world ; four 4-inch
rapid-fire guns like those that did such
service in the destruction of Cervera's
The monitors will be 225 feet long, 50
feet broad, and will draw about 12,'g
feet of water.
Bids were submitted as follows :

from Shanghai says :

intently interested people, the shrill sal

The approach of the christening party
was greeted with tremendous cheers,
and as Miss Leiter and her attendants
ascended the gaily decked platform, and
while the workmen were engaged in
knocking away the keel blocks, all eyes
were upon the young lady of Chicago.
Suddenly the painted mass of steel
quivered, then slowly began sliding to
ward the water. Just as the motion
fairly began. Miss Leiter, who bad been
standing with the christening bottle
poised in the air, let it swing sharply
againBt the bow, simultaneously utter
ing the words: "Ichristen thee Illinois,"
and then amid defeaning applause, the
waving of banners and the din of steam
whistles, the gaily decorated hull, with
more than 100 persons aboard, glided
gracefully into the James river and
slowly floated out into the stream.
