BIG PIER BURNED
New York Fire That Cost
MANY PERSONS BARELY ESCAPED
Several Barges Moored Near the Pier
Were Destroyed Child Drowned
New York, May 8. A fire that start
ed at the river end of the Mallory Line
steamship pier, at the foot of Maiden
Lane and the East river early this
morning, completely destroyed the pier
and its valuable contents.
The police place the loss at $1,000,-
000. Several barges, which were
moored near the pier, were also de
stroyed, and many rescues of their cap
tains and of members of the families
on board were made. One life was
lost. The 9-months-old daughter of
Captain Charles Lochs, of the barge
Sherwood, was drowned.
The Mallory pier waa 200 feet long
and 50 feet wide. The pier was filled
with valuable freight, mostly cotton.
On the north side of the pier were
moored a number of coal and cotton
barges, while on the south side was the
steamer San Marios and a number of
No sooner had the work of fighting
the flames begun than the firemen
turned their attention to saving the
lives of those on the barges which were
lying within the line of danger. Near
est to the pier was the narge Stephen
B. Elkins. Her Captain, Frank Fox,
and his wife and 3-months-old daughter
were on board sleeping. A skid was
quickly run from the pier to the coal
barge and the occupants of the boat
were awakened ana were hurried from
their bunks to a place of safety before
the flames reached them.
On board the barge Sherwood were
Charles Lochs, the captain, 86 years
old; his wife Lenna, 80 years old, and
their daughter, Rosie, 9 months old.
The Lochs family was awakened by the
flames. Their barge was already on
fire. The father took the 9-months-old
baby in bis arms, and with his wife
jumped into the water. Timothy
Boyle, formerly in command of the
burge New Brunswick, whose home is
at Rondout, JN. Y., plunged in to save
the woman, who had become exhaust
ed. Her husband, who still held the
baby in his arms, saw that his wife
was on the point of going down. It
became a question with him as to which
he should save, his wife or baby. He
let the baby go, in the hope that she
would be picked up by some one else,
and went to the assistance of his wife.
He managed to hold her head above
water until Boyle reached them. All
three were then landed by life lines,
the ohild being lost. The half drowned
captain and his wife were moved to the
Hudson street hospital, where they re
covered. On the coal barge H. H
Hand, which lay alongside the other
burning barges, were the captain,
Joseph Plumb, his wife and two chil
dren. All were rescued by the police

Reply to the Porte's Note.
Constantinople, May 6. The ambas

reply to the porte's note of April 29 re
garding the increase of duties, as fol
lows: "The embassies note the porte's
declaration that it does not intend' to
introduce any unilateral measures, and
will hasten to inform their govern
ments of this." The ambassadors have
decided to make their consent to an in
crease conditional on the removal of
the abuses of the chemical analysis, the
suppression of warehouse duties and
the abolition of the stipulation where
by articles not specified in the tariffs
may be interdicted, confiscated or de

THlL CASE OF CLARK.
Senate Will Take it Up Kelt Thurs
Washington, May 5. The senate to
day adopted the motion of Hoar to take
np the resolution of the committee an
elections declaring that Clark, of Mon
tana, was not duly elected to the sen
ate, and then postponed consideration
of the question for a week. The army
appropriation bill, after a rather spirit
ed debate, was passed without division.
The day olosed with the passage of a
number of privalo pension bills, includ
ing bills to pension Mrs. Julia Henry,
widow of the late General Guy V.
Henry; General James Longstreet, Mrs.
Margaret M. Badger, widow of the late
Commodore Badger, and Mrs. Harriot
Gridley, widow of the late Captain
Gridley, of the navy.
The house today, without division,
passed the free homes bill, which has
been pending before cougress for a
number of years. The bill provides
that the government shall issue pat
ents to aolual bona fide settlers on
agricultural lands of Indian reserva
tions opened - to settlement. These
lands were taken up by settlers, who
contracted to pay for them $1.25 lo
$3.75 per acre. By the terms of the
bill, the government assumes the pay
ment of the purchase price to the In
dians and changes the existing law rel
ative to agricultural colleges so as to
insure the payments of the endowments
which heretofore have come out of the
sale of publio lands in case of deficien
cy. These payments involve $1,200,
000 annually. Of the 29,000,000 acres
in Indian reservations opened to settle
ment, for whiuh the government is to
pay or has paid $35,000,000, about
8,000,000 acres have been taken and
2.000,000 are supposed to be still avail
able for agricultural purposes. A re
markable thing in connection with the
passage of the bill today was a speech
in its favor bv Galusha A. Grow, the
venerable ex-speaker of the house, who
48 years ago, fathered and passed the
original homestead bill. He was then
the youngest and is now the oldest
member of the house. The remainder
of the day was devoted to the sundry
oivil appropriation bill, the last but
one of the great supply bills.

other members of the legislature.
The afternoon session of the court

engineer who had made a measurement

WRECKAGE OF A LINER.
Passed In MM-Atlantic Causes Anxiety
In Marine Circles.
Chicago, May 9. A speoial to the
Record from Philadelphia aays:
Captain Campbell, of the British
steamer Tenby, which arrived at Phila
delphia today from Port Said, brings an
account of wreckage passed at sea,
which is causing great anxiety among
shipping men. The captain believes
maritime disaster has occurred, in
volving the loss of an Atlantic liner.
The Tenby fell in . with the wreckage
mentioned at a point west of the mid
Atlantio and the lookouts observed a
bark flying distress signals, but it was
to far off and the sea too rough for the
steamer to lender any assistance.
Toward sunset on April 80, when the
Tenby was steaming slowly westward
gainst heavy seas the lookout reported
that her path was obstructed by float
ing timbers and spars for a considera
ble distance head. Captain Campbell
himself saw portions of a deckhouse,
pleoes of planking, seemingly from a
vessel's hull, and many minor objects,
fll of which seemed to have been in
the water only a short time. There
were steumer chairs and other nne
furniture not generally carried by
freight steamers. Night olosed in as
the Tenby resumed her voyage. The
locality of the wreckage is given on her
logbook at latitude 87 north, and be
tween longitude 63 and 65 west.
The next day. May 1, the bark was
soon apparently in distress. She was
a largo, four-masted vessel, painted a
slate color, and had several signals out.
Soon after she was sighted she disap
peared in the fog.
Captain Campbell said today that if
the vowel was in need of assistance she
was in a favorable position to reoeive
it. Her situat'on was directly in the
truck of shipp'ng between New York
and the equator.
He did not connect the. wreckage
passed with the bark in question, but
many who heard the story are inclined
to the opinion that the bark collided
with and sunk another craft, of which
only the wreckage lemains. The bark
is south of the path of Atlantio liners,
and if the vessel which is supposed to
have been lost is really an ocean grey
hound, she must have been far out ot
her course when the collision occurred.
On the other hand, the wreokage ia
directly in the line of the craft which
ply between the northern ports and
those of South America.
GENERAL GARCIA CAUGHT.
Next to Aguinaldo the Leading Filipino
Manila Bay, May 9. General Pante-
Ion Garcia, the highest insurgent offi
cer, except Aguinaldo, was capturod
yesterday by Lieutenant fc. P. Smith,
of General Funston'a staff, in the town
f Jaen, three miles northeast of San
Isidro, province of New Ecija.
Garcia personally conducted the
guerilla operations, and General Fun
ston had spent weeks in . trying to cap
ture him, several companies beating
the whole country at night. Often the
Americans caught messengers bearing
Garcia'B orders. The people protected
him and burned signal lights whenever
the American soldiers appeared.
Recently General Fnnston surprised
him and his staff while dining at Ara
yat at dusk. The Filipinos leaped
through the windows and escaped,
leaving thoir papers and everything ex
cept the cloihing they wore. The strain
of being hunted finally exhausted their
Genoral Funston, who came to Ma
nila to bid farewell to General Otis,
will return and endeavor to persuade
Garcia to secure the surrender of bis
forces which number several thousand.
Most of them live in the mountains.
Jaen is the largest ungarrisoned
town it the province. Spies reported
that Garcia was sick and had been
compelled to hide there, and Lieuten
ant Smith with Lieutenant Day and
40 cavalry, surrounded the town. The
3ples led them directly to the house
where Garcia was disguised as a peas
ant, only a major and two servants be
ing with him. They also were cap
tured. Garcia commanded all the insurgents
in Cential Luzon, several generals, iu
eluding Pio del Pilar and Mascardo,
being under him.
