Dlaaatrous Fire near Bradford, Fa.
Bradford. Pennsylvania. Mav 10
This afternoon, by a gas explosion in a
stove in the house of Justice Cline at Bix
ford, ten miles southwest of Bradford, the
building was set on fire. All the adjoin
ing buildings being light frumo structures,
the fire spread rapidly, snd before its fury
was spent, w buildings were hud in ashes
The list embraces the principal hotels,
stores and business places, including the
Kohdall and F.ldrek Railroad depot. The
fire also burned the pump station, of the
United Pipe lines. A tank containing
7000 barrels or oil was burned, and an Iron
tank containing 25,000 barrels of oil is
now in Humes. A short distance further
down the valley is locuted another 25,000
barrel tank, owned by the Union Pipe
linos,and two others of similar dimensions
belonging to the Tide-wuter pipe line.
These three tanks are all full, and It is
thought cannot escape destruction. A
large forco of men are building dams to
chock the burning oil from running down
the valley, should the tank now on lire boil
over. In and around Rixford forty dor
ricks wero also consumed. It is liupossl
sible to estimate the loss. At present
several wood tires are reported, but no
serious damuges have yet resulted.
Latku One 00,000 barrel Iron tank of
McLood aud Mudisou and the 25,000 bar
rel iron tanks of the United Pipe lined
at Rexford are still burning furiously.
One tank boiled over and Bet a second
25,000 barrel iron tank of tno United lines
in flames. There are two other tanks of
similar dimensions belonging to the Tide
Water Pipe Line Company a short dis
tance further dow n the valley which can
uoi escape destruction. 1 he heat Is sn
intense that workmen are prevented from
digging trenches or building dams. No
other property in the immediate vicinity
is burning except tho tanks, and unless
iiigh winds prevail, the Humes can be
confined to the oil tanks. The loss on oil
is homo by a goneral average assessment
on all patrons of the pipe lines. No fur
ther property was destroyed in Rexford
besides the 80 buildings reported.

Berlin, Muy 11. The reichstug to-day
proceeded with a debute on tho second
reading of the Elbe navigation act. After
seven hours discussion the house rejected
it by a vote of 125 to 123. A motion was
made by Horr Von Benigsen to refer tho
bill back to the committee was also re
jected by a vote of 138 to 110. A declu
tory resolution ot the committee that the
Elbo frontier line could not bo removed
to a point lower down the river except bv
a special bill. The bouse dually agreed
to a second reading and resolved to taKe
up the bill for a third reading. At tlya
evening sitting Ministers Bitter and Hoff
man declared that tbe question of tho
Elbe customs boundary would not be
made to serve as a bundle for indirectly
destroying tho stutus of Hamburg as a free
port, and assured that the privileges of
Hamburg should not be touched without
the assent of the city itself; but they at
the same time emphatically stated that
the government would not concode one
iota of their rights to define free port ter
ritory. Von Benigsen thanked Bismarck
for the deference shown for national feel
ing in his firm assurance that lie would
not enter into unnatural alliance with
clericals or allow reaction iu ecclesiastical
matters to become the basis of his policy.

He bore the most excruciating of

which would have done honor to Stylites;
but tho slightest error on tho part of his

paroxysms of rago that his friends were
glad to be out of his house. His whole
soul was tormented by an insatiable
thirst for literary and political distinc
tion; it would, wo believe, bo impossible
to find iu his voluminous correspondence
half a dozen letters in which he does not
express coDtempt both for the world and
for the world s regard.
His opinions were as wayward and as

The Late China Mania.
The legitimate state for china collect
ing should spring either from love for
representative china, or for china that
satisfies the sense of beauty in the mind
of the collector. What makes represen
tative china so deeply interesting is the
the sense of personal work in the making
of each piece. The potters of the past
were gonerally men of small origin, wno
led hard lives, and created their work
piece bv piece, in the face of adverse cir
cumstances and under great difficulties
of construction. Knowing little of
geology or chemistry, they sought their
way from the sun dried clav to be com

few years have seen a marked decline in
china collecting. Nothing has taken itt
exact place. Much of the late mania for
for china was part of a sort of spurious
renaissance for everything belonging to
tho eighteenth century: all tasto was at
low ebb, and the power to improve that
taste partook of the want of vitality
which was beginnim? to show itself.
