As to the eaar.a.'tar (f ,) .;o vki.ors, the

were blooming young girls, wiih rosy

Fitzsinimtms Defeats 3Iaher.
LAXGTKY, Tex., Feb. 22. The long de

mons and Peter Maher took place on the j
Mexican side of the river near this place
late yesterday afternoon. The battle was
sharp, short and decisive. After one
minute and thirty-five seconds of vigorous j
lighting Fitzsimmons landed a heavy '
blow on Maher's chin, and the latter fell
unconscious. "When he came to, at the
end of fifteen seconds, Fitzsimmons had
won the championship and the ?10,XX)
purse. Owing to disagreeable weather the
kiuetoscope could not be worked, ami 110

Tlio Danger That Threatens France.
London, Feb. 21 The Times' corre

to co-operate with the next ministry tore
vise the constitution and to legalize the
position it has just assumed, otherwise
the senate will inevitably disappear, and
France will drift towards that greatest
calamity, a convention."

Wasiiixhtox, Feb. 21. The Cuban
fjuesiion caur; 1) d'ore th-.s senate yesterday
for definite and final action, and it is ex
pected that votes will b taken at an early
day, on the several pending propositions
requesting Spain to recogni;;3 the belliger
ency of Cuba, and requesting a recognir ion
of Cuban independence. There is every
indication, also, that the debate will lead
to more radical and decisive resolutions.
The opening of the; debate drew large
crowds to the galleries, and there were fre
quent demon-t rations of approval at the
j-ti; ring and dramatic utterances of several
ef the speakers. IIr. Lodge, of Massaehu
setts, and Mr. Morgan, of Alabama, were
particularly forcible and direct in th ir
language. In graphically picturing the
rise an I spiva I of the rebellion Mr. Lodge
"du-.t a year ago another revolution b -gau.

id' the v'ahod Stares."
Comparing the former commander. Cen
tral Marti rcr. Cuaiaa;. wi.h the pres nt
one. (-iene:al Weyler, Mr. Lod.re said:
"Martinez. Campos, the able.it general in
Spain, has been reealled because lu faded
to put; down this insurrection recalled
when the in -urgent troop; had been ac
tually in the suburbs of iiavana, and in
his place has been sent a man whoso only
reputation known to the world is that of
I lie most coal blooded brutality in the hist
war for liberty in that island."
Again, the senator said, referring to the
desperate fighting of the insurgents, said:
"Cuba is fighting not only for indepon
der.ee. These men arc; lighting, every one
of them, with a price on their heads and a
rope around their necks. They have shown
that they could light well. They are light
ing the battle of despair."
There was hearty applaure as Mr. Lodge
closed with the following peroration:
"If the war goes on in Cuba, with thx
added horrors which this new general
brings with him, the responsibility is on
us. We cannot escape it. We should ex
ert every influence of the United States.
Standing as I believe they do for human
ity and civilization, we should exercise
every influence of our great country to put
a stop to that great war that is now rag
ing there, and try to give to that island
once more peace and liberty and security."
Mr. Morgan, who reported the resolu
tion, expressed the opinion that "any ac
tion that this country might take looking
to Cuban recognition would result iu wAr
with Spain," and he also said that Spain
would welcome a war with this country,
which would afford her a legitimate ex
cuse to get rid of Cuba in a way not to
wound her pride. The galleries broke into
loud applause when, in response to a ques
tion by Mr. Frye, Mr. Morgan said:
"My opinion is that congress has the
perfect, independent, absolute right to
make this recognition of belligerency, or a
declaration of independence, and, if it is
necessary, to enforce it by any military
movement at sea or on land. It has the
right to command the commander-in-chief
ofthe army nud navy to go on the field, if
it is necessary, and expose his person to
the execution of that order. That is my
Mr. Cameron and Mr. Call also spoke.
Mr. Cameron gave notice that if the reso
lution was adopted requesting Spain to
act, and should it not, he would then
move for the immediate and complete
recognition of Cuban independence.
Throughout the debate, lasting three
hours, Senor Pastor, of the Spanish lega
tion, sat in the diplomatic gallery.
Again the houss attended strictly to
business. The conference report on the
diplomatic and consular bill was agreed
to the senate amendments to the pension
bill were sent to conference, and the In
dian appropriation bill was taken up. The
latter bill carries $3,630,995, or $132,793 less
than the law for the current year.

ried back to ike hou.-e, entered the front
door, closed it behind him and a-cended
to the .second fiuor, where Mr. and Mrs.

The house vras by this time filled with a
dense, tiding smoke, and when the negro
and Mr.i. Armiger a. templed to descend
they found it impossibi . Whiting aided
Mrs. Armiger to tiie front window and

found the latter Lad gone, and came back
to Mrs. Armiger, who, ciad ia nothing but
her nig hi dot lies was .shivering on the
narrow balcony and shrieking in agonized
tones for help.
Half a dozen men who were passing has
tened to tiie powerhouse of the Charles
Etreet cable car line, a block below, and
procured a short ladder. When they re
turned they found Deputy Fire Chief Mc
Afee, a noted life saver, who quickly
mounted the ladder. It was not long
enough, but by standing on the upper-
most round he could reach the frightened
woman. As he attempted to lift her from
the balcony her scanty clothing caught on
an obstruction and she fell forward with
her whole weight upon the outstretched
arm of the fireman. Just then the ladder
slipped, and everyone below expected to
see both the rescuer and the woman he
was trying to save dashed to death on the
pavement below. By a tremendous effort,
however, McAfee steadied himself, and,
holding Mrs. Armiger with one hand,
grasped the balcony with the other. Hang
ing thus, he slowly replaced the ladder
with his feet and brought the now faint
ing woman down in safety.
In the meantime the other inmates of
the front rooms were crowding to the win
dows making the most piteous appeals for
help. The people below shouted to them
not to jump, but Alice Williams disre
garded their warnings, and with an ap
palling shriek sprang from' the fourth
story window and struck the stone steps
full upon her forehead, fracturing her
skull, and sustaining other injuries from
which she will die.
In a rear room on the second floor were
Eleanor and Virginia, the unmarried
daughters of Mr. Armiger. They were
partially dressed, but so rapid was the
spread of the flames that they had no time
to escape by the stairway. In their ex
tremity they leaned far out of the rear
window and cried for help. A neighbor
came to their aid, and under his cool
headed directions Miss Virginia lowered
her younger sister with a sheet, and, throw
ing a mattress out of the window, leaped
to the yard below. She alighted in safety,
and beyond the shock and a slight injury
to her ankle escaped unhurt.
By this time the firemen had reached
Che scene, and in a twinkling had reared
long ladders up to the windows, both
front and rear. Up these they swarmed,
and in a few minutes the remaining in
mates of the doomed house were being
carried out. On the stairway leading
from the second to the third floor was
found the body of Mr. Arirdflrer. with that
