Toronto, Ont., April 19. Fire
swept through a section of Toron
to's wholesale business district to
rfight, causing a loss which will
probably reach $10,000,000. The
fire started in a factory in Welling
ton street about 9 o'clock. In less
than an hour the flames had spread
from buildings on both sidesof the
street until the whole block was a
mass of flames, and the fire was ut
terly beyond the control of the local
department. Appeals were sent to
every surrounding city where fire
apparatus could be obtained asking
for assistance. Montreal, London,
Hamilton and Buffalo at once re
sponded, but it will be hours before
they can be of assistance.
It was believed at 11 o'clock that
the fire was under control,1 but a

falling buildings and a mass of

midnight seemed to be fruitless.

Hotel. The thick fire walls of the
hotel and the concentrated efforts
of the fire-fighters stopped the
flames there, but in the meantime
the fire had swept across the street
and the block of buildings from
Bay street went to the National
Club and wiped it out. .

The adroitness of the Japanese in
this style of warfare is shown by
their methods of locating the oppos
ing outposts. They dress in peas
ant Corean Costume, sending for
ward men who are able to speak
the Russian tongue with perfect flu
ency and then shout to the Russian
scouts in their own language. By
these methods they have on several
occasions been able to gather much
information, attacking when they
find themselves the strongest or re
treating when outnumbered.
This course has been one of great
annoyance to the Russians, as they
are unable in the darkness to tell
whether addressed by friend or foe.
