Lenox, Mass., April 12. Six people lost their lives, three others were bad ly burned and a property loss of about $400,000 was caused by the lire In the heart of. the business section of this town. Four buslnoss blocks, two dwellings and two other structures were destroy ed In n section bounded by Franklin. Main, Ilousotonlo and Church streets. Tho tire Is believed to hnve started In the Clifford building from spontaneous combustion, Tho dead are: Kdwnrd O. Ventrep, electrician; Mrs. lOdward C. Ventres, Miss Leslie Ventres, Miss Alice French, bookkeeper; Miss Isabel Cook, bookkeeper, and Miss Mary Sparks, schoolteacher. The Injured were Mrs. Catherine Itoot and her two sons, George Hoot and Arthur Hoot. Some of the principal losses were: Mahanna building, owned by Wil liam Mahanna, $25,000; I P. Dttra bardl & Co. of New York, oriental shop. $8,000; B. H. Rogers & Co., elec tricians, $4,000. William B. Bull building, $30,000. Clifford building, $25,000; James Clif ford & Sons, hardware. $20,000; Mur ray A. Brown, grocer, $10,000. Eddy building, Charles Eddy estate, $15,000; John Cutwood, plumber, $10, 000; Frank Morrier, department store, $12,000; James Cassldy, druggist, $10. 000. The other buildings burned Included the residences of Joseph Itegnler, Mrs. Rose Colbert, Mrs. Theodore Cowhlg and B. II. Rogers. A fortunate shift of wind from the northwest to the southwest saved the Public library and the fashionable Curtis hotel. In tho hotel there were several Easter parties from New York. The loss of life occurred In the Clif ford building, where the blaze started, and resulted primarily from a series of explosions among the oils, dynamite and turpentine stored, in the building of the James Clifford & Sons com pany, hardware dealers. Mrs. Root and her sons had barely crossed the street before there was a terrific explosion in the building be hind them. This explosion was heard In the surrounding territory for a dis tance of six miles, shattered windows within a wide radius and caused the fire alarm to ring. In un Instant the Clifford block was wrapped in flames. Horace Perrlll and his wife, other occupants, aroused by tho shouts of tho Roots, had got halfway down the front stairs when they saw the Humes leaping up to bar their exit. Three women were below them try ing to get out through tho front door, but Perrlll saw that tho attempt was by that time useless. He then rushed his wife through n long corridor to the back stairs, where he got out in safety. All the other occupants of the Clifford block lost their lives. The death of Miss Alice French was one of the pitiful tragedies. While the lire in the Clifford block was at its height a woman was seen to climb out of a flame tilled room on to a veranda on the second story with her night clothing and hair ablaze. Staggering to the railing, the wo man leaped to the sidewalk beneath, landing in n heap within Ave or' six feet of the blazing walls. Some of the horrified onlookers at tempted to rush in to drag her out. but the Intense heat drove them back and not until the flames had practical ly died out several hours later was the body recovered.

During the voyage through the cnnal the Admiral passed the steamer City of Paris, from Kurrachee, crowded with British passengers.

Prior to his being taken aboard the steamer Versailles for deportation to France ex-Presldcnt Castro prepared a written protest against the action of the French government, which reads as follows: "I hereby protest against the action of the French authorities of Marti nique In having me put by force on board an outgoing vessel "First. Because I was 111 at the time and becnuso the act Imperiled my life. "Second. Because I have committed no offense against the government of France and the authorities of Marti nique during the time thnt I was per mitted to remain on that Island. "Third. Becuuse the decree of expul sion which orders my deportation out of French territory compels me to take passage aboard a vessel which will tgaln land me on French territory. "Moreover, these considerations aside, the case constitutes a breach of inter national law and a denial of the rights of individuals. "That such a thing should have come to pass in the laud which saw the birth of Josephine nnd from which came the Inspiration and presage of liberty and at the bands of a people who shed their blood by torrents hard ly a century ago to maintain unim paired tho rights and prerogatives of man Is Inconceivable." The ex-presldent said Just before the sailing of the Versailles that if he was at liberty when he arrived nt St. Na zalre he would Immediately proceed to Spain In order to take passage for Santa Cruz. Tenerife. General Castro added that he was leaving his brother Carmelo here for the purpose of re ceiving mail which he expects to be forwarded from Trinidad and Vene zuela. The Versailles will stop nt Basse Terre and Point a PItre, Guadeloupe. Hardly hud the steamer left port when a party of Castro's friends arrived on the steamer Goelette from St. Lucia. They were very much surprised that the former president had been expelled from the island nnd had a long consul tation with Castro's brother. The removal of the former president of Venezuela from the hotel to the steamer was not without Its pitiful as pect. Immediately on the announce ment of tho medical commission who made a lengthy physical examination ot Castro thnt he was quite capable of making the voyage the commissary of police, with an escort of gendarmes, invaded tho hotel and proceeded to his chamber. They found the ex-president lying in bed, and, although he still protested that ho could not move, they carried him downstairs, the patient nil the while moaning dismally, on a mattress and placed him In a stretcher. Officers from the United States cruis er North Carolina In civilian dress helped to make him as comfortable ns possible, and then the stretcher was picked up by four negroes and taken to the steamer dock. Gendarmes guarded It on either side, and a crowd of people numbering fully 2,000 fol lowed the procession through the streets. The entrance to the French line piers was guarded by police, and no one was permitted to enter except those who were directly connected with the trans ference of the ex-presldent. Some dif ficulty was experienced In hoisting tho litter aboard, and for a moment Castro was in peril of falling out. The stretcher was set down In ono of the cabins, and Castro at once de clared that tho room was too small and demanded that he be transferred to an other cabin. He was promised that a change would be made during the course of the voyage. In saying fare- well to his brother he waved his hand nnd exclaimed, "Goodby for the mo ment." SEAL CATCH IS 200,000.
