St. Paul, Auk. 12.-That the end of

uncertainty is how It will end. The

Loud and long blew the tire alarm
w.iistle this morning at about
o'clock, which roused the citizens
from tnelr slumbers and caused them
to has'tn to the field of disiater. The
tire department were promp'.ly on the
spot and worked like heroes, to get
tha tire under control, as well as to
save the adjoining buildings.
The origin of the tire, so ms to have
been the explosion of an arc lamp in
the rear part, of the Eagle llakery, on
the ground fluor; or at least, that is
the supposition. Karl Weid was In
terviewed this morning by the scribe
and gave the following statement,
that, his assistant himself ruse ah jut
midnight lit an arc lamp and
built a lire In the bake oven, and
made pr-paratlons to begin work
seeing that the tire was all right, he
turned down tliellghtof the arc-lamp
plated It on a tabje In either the bake
shop or the room adjoining ft, we are
not sure which, nd left for Kueb s
cafe for a luncheon, when they had
reached the First National Batik they
heard an exploit in, he said Wilt being
unable to locate it, they went on to
the restaurant. The lire-alarm sounds
ed in a very short time and they bur
ried out tu the walk, seeing the tire
wagon hurrying westward, thev fol-
lowed, when about opposite Brock's
restaurant, he says they saw the
11 ime burst outthroug'i t' e front of
his store, while those iu the rear of
the building saw the fl ime shtot Tom
back part of building,as well Mr a-d
Mrs Get W Cooper otthe Pacific hotel
were the first ones to see the tire, is
their sleeping room Is on the grouud
floor of the hotel in the rear of the
building and at right-angles with the
Eagle Bakery building. A dense
bluish «ray smoke was all that was
visible to them at iirst and for a sec-
ond they did not believe it to be a
fire Mr. Cooper then lurried across
the alley, calling tire as he ran. Not
getting any response from Itbe Weld,
establishment, he ran up the back
stair-way int) the second floor of the
Bon Ton Bakery building and awaken-
ed Mr. Borowlak and his family
causing them toescapa without Injury.
Its almost a miracle that those old
wooden buildings from the Krelch
rjck building to the Chrlstoph brick
tlock was not wiped out of •xistence.
iiad the wind been In that direction
thej would hava gone sure. The
Eagle Bakery building owned by the
Helm Brewing Company is complete-
ly destroyed, was well insured, Mr
Weid says his slock was insured for
about one-hall its value. The Bon
Ton Bakery building, is completely
gutted. Its owned by A. H. More
bead, of Lawton, O. T„ and uninsured
we did not learn, how much insurance
Mr. Borowlak has on his stock and
fixtures. TheEby Hardware Co is
damaged perhaps a aiOOO or 12000
while the bulldlnr owned by Bred
Kretcb is badly wrecked. The rocks

and cracked from the intense beat

able to give an exact estimate of the
enUre losses at this writing as
the adjustments have not been
made, but the damages will probably
reach the *10,000 mark.
011 Inspectors Report.
Guthrie, Okla., Aug 15 -Territor-
ial Oil inspector Ashton today issued
his monthly report for July. Eighty-
four thousand nine hundred and
thirty-seven gallons of kerosenei were
shipped into the territory 205,516
gallons of gasoline were shipped In,
making a total of 290,183 gallons or
5 809 barrels. 670 in fees were col
lected, of which 1167,61 was turned
over to the territorial treasurer

somewhat as a result of today s de-
velopments. The discussion of the
terms submitted by Japan has act
ually begun, but this has been accom-
plished by p-jstponlng the considera-
tion of the two main Issues indemn ty
and the cession of Sakhalin.
So far as ascertainable the Japan-
ese were responsible for the tactics
by which this hop;ful stage was en-
tered upon, As the mantle of secrecy
has been thrown around the procecd
ings by mutual pledges not to divulge
what happened within the council
chamber, their are missing links in
the chain of evidence, and it is im
possible to judge wheter this signifies
a backdown on either side on the
main points, On the face of things,
are still as uncompromising as ever
upon the two Issues, the struggle over
them being merely postponed.
Some sort of private understand! ng
arrived at by Baron Komura and M.
Witte during Jthe recess at the navy
yar.1 today is hinted at, but not tbe
sllgbest confirmation to be obtained
No ev dence*of a change of the un-
compromising attitude on tbe part of
M Witte or Baron Rosen regarding
the main points is observable. Never-
theless the Japanes; who are attach-
ed to the Nippon mission plainly
manifest elation, and some of I hem
privately assert that M. Witte would
never have consented to the discussion
of the terms had he nol been prepar-
ed yield on thequestlon of Sakhalin,

Philadelphia, Aug. 11,—The battle-
ship Kansas, the largest war vessel
ever built in the east, was launched
at 12:48 p. m. today at the navy yard
nf N w York, Shipbuilding company
in Camdsn, N. J. The launching
was witnessed by Governor Hoch, o'

though very rapid prjgress was made
with the peace negotiations today,
three of the twelve articles which con
stitute the Japanese conditions of
peace h iving been agreed to by Mr.
Witte and Baron Rosen on behalf Of
Russia, neither of the two articles to
which Mr. Witte In his reply returned
an absolute negative, was reached.
This crisis, therefore, is still to come.
It may be reached tomorrow as ces-
sion of Sakahalin comes tifth in the
list. The thr'ee "articles" as they are
officially designated in the brief com-
munications authorized to be given to
the press which were disposed of to-
day, nre in substauce as follows.
First—Russia's recognition of Ja-
pan's "preponderating influence ' and
special position in Korea, which Rus-
sia henceforth agrees is outside of ber
sphere of influence, Japan binding
herself to recognize the suzsrainty of
the reigning family but with the
right to give advice and assistance to

special privileges In that province,
mutual obligation to respect the "ter

New Orleans, Aug. 12.—The exer
Hons of the inspectors of the marine
hospital service In conjunction with
the voluntary reports of physicians
produced another large aggregation
of new cases all classei yellow fever,
today. The public, however, having
reconciled itself to the execution ot a
heavy list for some days to come, was
Undismayed by the report. Both lay
aid scientific opinion still considers
the situation h ipeful. It Is admitted
that not all the cases embraced in the
daily totals of the authorities are yel
low fever. Ailsuspeclous cases what
ever their nature, that are turned in
by the inspectors and doctors go at
once to the yellow fever list.
The marine hospital service has
made so great an impression with the
manner in which it is doing its work
of disinfection that confidence is be
ing invited and the false Impression
among the uneducated classes as to
the expense and risk of reporting cas
es are rapidly removed. Today alii
davits were made against a number
of men of high standing in the com
mucity for failing to screen their cis
