New York. March C Six persons
were burned to death and two were in
ured early this morning in a fire which
occurred in a seven-story lodging house
at 44 to 43 Bowery. The dead are:
Charles Bnttie, 40 years- old; John
Clark, 50 years old; Edward Doyle, 85
years old; Heury Jackson (colored),
85 years old; one unidentified man
about 50 years old, Stephen Carney, 75
years old. Martin Gallagher, 53 years
old, was burned Bbout the face and
hands and also removed to the hospital.
Edward Walker, 47 years old, was
burned, but after having his wound
dressed, remained at the lodging house.
The fire was discovered shortly after
9 o'clock. Smoke was pouring from
the windows of the fifth floor, and the
flames were making rapid progress.
Tho lodging houso was cut up into
132 rooms, and 90 of these small places
were occupied when the fire broko out.
Policemen sent in an alarm and burst
into the place to arouse tho inmates.
They notified the night clerk, who im
mediately rang the alarms all over the
house. The hallways were instantly
filled with a crowd of excited people.
The policemen forced their way to the
upper floors in an effort to rescue some
of the helpless, believing one or two
were overcome with smoke. They
carried out Thomas Harper, a one-
legged man, and Ed Waker, who had
been burned and partially overcome by
the smoke. Stephen Carney was found
dying on the floor in his room, where
the flames had already burned the old
man's face, hands and body, but a
policeman picked him up and carried
him out of the building.
The firemen succeeded in putting ov
the flames without great loss to the
building. After the fire was out they
began a search. The bodies of all live
ot the victims were found on the fifth
flovr, where the fire did tho most dam
age. Buttie was suffocated in his bed.
John Clark was found on the floor of
bis room dead, as was also Edward
Doyle. The colored man was found
dead at a window, and the unidentified
man had been overcome just as he was
dragging himself from the window to
the fire escape. All the bodies were
taken to tbe morgue. The damage to
the building will amount to about $2,
000. The place was conducted by
Domino Milano, and was a cheap Bow
ery lodging house.
Carney, who died tonight, is said to
have been a licensed priest of the

Washington, March 6. Investigation
of the causes, effects, and means of
prevention of forest fires in the West,
will be carried on this summer in
Washington, Oregon, California, Ari

sides field study, designed chiefly to
discover means of preventing the evil,
the forestry division is making a his-
troic record of all important fires which
have occurred in the United States
since 1754. Although yet incomplete,
this indicates that the annual recorded
loss bv forest burnings in the United
States is, at the very lowest, $20,000,
000. It will probably run far above
this sum. as the Pacifio coast states

stoamer Aoraugi, from Sydney, today
brings an account of the most disas
trous bush fires in Victoria experienced
in the last 50 years. The entire
Warrnambool district has been devas

NEEDS OF THE NAVY.
Secretary Long Submit a Statement to
Washington, March 5. Socretary
Long has made a statement to the house
naval committee on the general needs
of the navy and the desirability of not
building new ships in government
yards. As to the new ships, he held to
his recommendation at the time con-
cress met. namely, three armored cruis
ers of about 13,000 tons each, with the
heaviest armor and most powerful ord
nance; 12 gunboats of about 900 tons
each, three protected cruisors of about
8.000 tons each. As to huilding war
ships in our navy yard, Mr. Long said
they cost much more than those built
under contract, and took twice as long
to build them.
Admiral Dewey suggested to the com
mittee that it leave off the 12 gunboats
and cive three new battleships instead
Tie said that the battleships would he
more serviceable, as General Otis had
just purchased 14 gunboats, and had
turned them over to the navy. , They
were in fair condition, and the admiral
said that from his experience, he
thontrht they were iust the vessels
needed for service in the Philippines

General Wilson Say Contrary Report
Matanzas, Cuba, March 7.-General
James H. Wilson, military governor of
the department of Matauzas-Santa
Clara, in the course of an interview
"Trouble ia absolutely out of the
question. Tho future depends largely
upon the agriculture prosperity; and
where work is plentiful, wages are
good, and a' country is prosperous, no
sensible man wishes to alter conditions.
"Any person who publishes reports
representing the Cubans as preparing
rising, does so with malicious intent to
misrepresent them, or because he has
beon led to believe this by those who
know better. The prospects of Cuba
are very bright. If sugar goes to the
United States free or nearly so, there
will be such an influx of capital and of
mmigrauts as will render Cuba, ere
long, one of the richept and most pros
perous places in the world.
"The best the United States can do
for Cuba and the Cubans is to give
every opportunity for improving tne
value of the land by putting it to the
best uses. In this way capital could do
an immense amount of good here as
well as get large returns."
