Thousands of spectators yesterdny
viewed tho roven dlsmnl nnd for
bidding looking wrecks of the build
ings destroyed by Thursday's big llro
on Lackawanna avenue. Throughout
the entire day the avenue was llnod
with curious lookers on, who watched
the llrcmon maintaining a btcady
stream on tho smouldering embcra
and endeavotlng to clear away the
Chief JCbelmann wan on hand during
the grrnter part of the day, despite
his Illness, und superintended the work.
The llnmcs did not blazo out onco.
nnd only in tho ba&ements of tho Ilen
wood und Matthews buildings was
thcro any need of uttentlon. Hero the
charred timbers still contained some
vostlgo of lire, und had it not been
for the double strcnm plied steadily,
there might have been n small out
break. The block presents nn .appearance
discouraging and depressing In the ex
treme. Of tho Kenwood, Matthews
nnd Norton buildings, nothing remains
but thu mere skeletons, and the bare
walls make a gilm memento of the
throe stately structures. Of tho Crane
building but tho mere shell has been
lrjft, und the E. Morris building has
boon completely gutted.
The Golden and Walsh building es
caped with the least Injury, and S.
I Morris' plac, while not seriously af
j foeted by the tire, was damaged to
sucn nn extent oy wnter ami smoKe
that the entire building will have to

of course, now structuics miust go up.

The complete valuations of the seven

the Inmates, us given In yesterday's
Tilbune, wcte piactlcally correct. Tha
Kenwood building, which was valued
at about $33,000, was Injured for $27,

with the lot, makes a property worth
about $;..,000, was alone valued at $17,

$11,000, were Insured for $S,000, and a

The Norton building, valued at $20,-

In part of the National Express com

about two-thirds Insured, and $10,000
was carried on tho $15,000 stock. The
Golden & 'Walsh building, valued at
$10,000, was about Insured for all the
loss It sustained. Emanuel Morris'
building, estimated to bo worth $10,000,
being a practical duplicate of the
Golden Si 'Walsh building, carried
about $7,000 Insurance.
S. Morris' building was valued at
$11,000, and the necessary repairs to
get the building into any kind of con
dition will pun far over tho $5,S00 In
surance can ltd.
Of the inmates of the buildings, M.
.1. Koran's entire stocK was consumed.
This ran about $35,000, and a total In
surance of $2S,500 was carried upon It.
U. Moses & Co.'s $20,000 Ios3 was among
tho other great damages of the blaze.
The exaot amount of their Insurance
has not been as yet announced, but It
Is understood to be about three-quartets
of tho stock valuation.
HE AW LOSERS.
The Are insurance companies are
heavy losers by the conflagration, and
It is likely thut the amounts to be pilot
out by them will run between $250,000
and $300,000. The agencies represented
by C. G. Tloland & Brother arc prob
ably the hardest hit. and those of n.
W. Luce & Son aru also big losers.
The latter will have to pay out over
$33,000, while tlio Kulnnds' agencies
will huvo to expend fur more than that
Tho ugencies of Moote & Foster,
llitehcock & Son, Henry Uelin & Co.,
tho National Fire Insurance company,
und others also suffer extensively from
tho big blaze. It is not a bit unlikely
that tho losses sustained by the com
panies will it-hull In un upward Jump
In fire insurance, premiums. Said a
prominent central city Arc insutancc
man yesterday afternoon:
"I won't ba surprised If thesis losses,
when tlgured up, will prove to have
eaten up the entire premiums from the
cltyproper for the year 1900. Of course,
one can't foresee Jiiht what effect tha
lire will have on premiums, but It may
result In a, raise.
Something substantial to fall
back on In u. time ot need. A
common wish nnd a worthy one
sure; und easy for any earnest
soul to satisfy, too.
Of nil means under the sun, no
other has proved so practical as a
snug suvings fund. Can bo added
to und taken from any time; for
It Is always reiuly.

fell to the ground from a ladder nenr
the third floor while trying to maVo

having warned the inmates of the up
per floors of thalr danger, yesterday
tcMed easily at his home. His hip
and nrni wero bruised In tho fall and
a largo amount of Inhaled smoke also
caused him some trouble, but no seri
ous Injuries wore sustained by the
Driver Thomas Campbell, who wan
crushed beneath the ladder when
Walsh fell, carried his broken right
arm in o sling yesterday, and many
others of the firemen arc going around
tvlth cuts, bruises und burns as sou
M'lilih of the biggest fire experienced
h're In yeats.
MISS WALSH DISCOVERED IT.
Mi. Walsh was seen at his home
yrsterday by a Tribune man. A fact
tiOt previously announced was brought
.v.t In n conversation with him, which
was that the young woman who dis
covered tlte fire and informed Edward
Koran of it, who turned In the alarm,
was Miss Mary E. Walsh, a sister of
Hut l y Walsh. -Miss Walsh is employed
In Koran's shops on the fourth floor
and had entered tho hall of the H-n-wood
building about 2 o'clock. Sho
stepped to tho elevator shaft and, on
looking down It, saw a fiercely burning
Llazo at ths foot. Even as she watched,
almost paralyzed at first by tho sight,
tho flames gave a wild, fierce upward
leap and a savage tongue of lire shot
up tho shaft.
Then It was sho sounded ths alarm
of ".Ire" and her brother, rushing up
the steps, warned the car accountants
en tho third floor, fifty in number, who
nlnerwlse might have met a horrible
death. He then continued to the fourth
floor, but Photographer Grambo and
Dr. C. H. Tllton had already been
warned by the shaft of flame and liad
loft by the rear lire escape.
The remainder of the story can best
be tolc) In Mr. Walsh's own words. Tbe
young man's disposition Is of the quiet
est nnd his narrative could only be
f'lclteri after much persuasion and
then was given In tho most matter
of fact manner. It follows:
"I found myself penned Into Gram
bo's, the stairs a mass ot flamo and
our passenger elevator shaft a raging
furnncp. The flames had spread from
this shaft all over the fourth floor and
when I tried to reach the fire escape
In thi rear I was confronted by a solid
wall of fire. The grease in the shaft
must have had a, great deal to do with
tho rapidity with which it shot up
ward. "At any rate, I wns blocked. The
fire was fair pouring Into Grambo'.i
from tho rear and I was forced to
climb out of the window and hang on
to Grambo's sign. I suppose I held
on only for some minutes, but It seemed
like ce nturles to me. I could hear them
shouting for me to Jump Into the net
that was stretched below, but I Injured
one of my legs some time ago nnd I
wac afraid to risk a Jump.
"At last, after what I think was a
great deal of delay, they got the lad
ders up to me and I started down. Half
way between the third and fourth
floors the ladder gave way and down
I went. What were my sensations
then, did you say? Well, I can tell you
It wasn't no pleasant dream that I had.
"Poor Campbell. He broke my fall
and cither I or the ladder broke Ills
The Lackawanna car nccountantn dft
paitment will probably be located on
the top floor ot the Mears building as
soon as things can be arranged in
shnpe to renew their recent work. It
will take homo time to recoup the lost
records which wcro consumed In the

diocese a few months ago. Ptevlou3 to
that time ho had been assistant to
Very Itcv. T. F. Coffey in Carbondale.
Father Griffin must have served tho
people up there In a very able way,
and at the same time ho must have
earned their good wishes and, Indeed,
their lasting esteem, as demonstrated
by last night's occurrence In this city.
The committee was composed of E.
J. Dougherty, M. It. Campbell find
James P. Loftus. After Father Grit
fin had received those gentlemen, Mr.
Loftus arose and said:
JV-ar Vather OrllOi.: Wo are come tonight to
lca:e you a testimonial Wo are here to glv.
you (.nme tangible proof ol tho esteem and love
that your friends of ht. Itose'i hold for you. We
wish to Impress upon ou that Carbondale has
not forgotten yoit or your excellent work thcro
during tho pist years of jour busy life. And
yet there is a feeling of regret In doing it, for
It makes us conscious again of your leavluir, and
because It reminds us that our roor gift Is not
commensurate with the debt we owo you.
But we know that you will not measure our
generosity or gratitude by the site of our pocket
book. We know, also, that souls are more to
you than sovereigns. Wc believe, too, that what
we bring has a value lar beyond 1U Intrinsic
worth to yci and to us. It represent, to us,
tho good wishc", the blessings and eveu the
heart throbs of your friends In Carbondale
Only onco befoie, so far as I know, have vte
taken such action in the cne of a retiring piict.
We are alow to move In a particular of this
kind, and when wo do there must ba more tlun
a fleeting reason for it. In yoJr case, it pleases
mo to add, we hava many reasons. Your wholo
lifo among us impels lu to take some uctton,
to show In some unmlstik.ible way why wo think
of jou. We havo concluded tliat your noble
purpose, untiring zeal and uldnpread intercit
In im should not pavi unnoticed or unhonorcd.
You will bo pleased to remember, too, that
we fain would keep you loDger; but wc recog
nized in tho command of our good bishop that
he desired you to enter a splicte of greater ac
tivity and more reponslbIllty, where your blame
less life and splendid abilities would better serve
your Rod. And wo are assured that in this
higher railing ot jours ycu will acquit yourself
with that samo earnwtness and loyalty to duty
which make noticeable jour j cars ot labr
AX AIT1SITY EXIST?.
I have often tried to comprehend the affinity
that exists between a priest and his people. I
have tried lo understind It In the sense of giving
an exact or c.yual explanation ot Its primate char,
actir, its intense nature or its meaningful and
far-reaching attributes as a fores and actor in
the affairs of the Christian Ufa today. Titer
U something magical and mystical about it.
Others, too, have speculated on it, only to
learn that It defies the best reasoning ot phil
osophy and the subtletlen of metaphysics. U"t
noma day, majhap, It will be revealed to ui
vthen we pssu through thbi thing we call death
and enter the better life beyond.
I wish, dear Father Griffin, and, indeed, all of
us do, including our beloved pastor in Carbon
dale, that God will bless jou now and In the
years to comi that He will help you; that He
will hold up your hands and make you strong
to bear any crosses that may fill to you. And
as jou take your place dally at that altar, whos
tone of glittering chalices encircles tho world,
we would ask that jou sometimes think of us;
that jou will recommend us to God: that you
will ask Him to bless- m if living, and to hava
mercy on us If dead, that wc, and all the chil
dren of men, may see tin golden dawning of tha
"Gentlemen." Father Griffin said In
response, "you quite surprise mo to
PlfUit. This kindly action on your part
and. Indeed, on tho part of all my
friends In Carbondale, overcomes me.
It is not only wholly unwarranted so
far ns my work In dear St. Rose's is
concerned, but wholly unexpected bv
me. Had I known that my friends
In your city were engaged In a work
of this kind I would at once take steps
to prevent It. But since you have done
your work so quietly and, Indeed, so
very generously, there is nothing left
for me to do but to accept your gift
in the same sincere and heartfelt spirit
In which it Is offered.
"This I do, I assure you, and believe
me that I shall not soon forget you
or lull to value the kindly feelings
which prompt your generosity.
"You wlfl be kind enough to convey
