City officials are without Imrimer street side and stood in the offices and the Police Department has midst of'smoke and flames for nearly no jail' for its .prisoners, valuable rec- ords. maps and plans have been lost and the greater part of ehe furnishings of the building are destroyed. Within an hour last night three fires were discovered in different parts of the big buihling. At 5:50 o'clock Police Clerk Robert N. Pearson and Fred Boyer, chief li- cense clerk, discovered a fire in the basement. A closet umler the stair- way leading frmn the basement to the first floor of the building, which had beer filled with rags and paper, was the scene of the first blaze, which was extinguished with little difficulty. At 6:15 o'clock A.L. Bing and Ed- ward Richards, who were in the oper- ators' room on the fourth floor of the ~Ity hall, on the Fourteenth and Mar- ket street corner, discovered that there was a fire in the dressing room of the gymnasimn, located above the oper- ators' room. Upon investigation they found the lockers which lined the rooms were in flamen. The orperators n(rtifled the firemen in the basement of the city hall and the blaze was ex- tinguished with little difficulty. In an attempt to save official records and vaulable documents several per- sons were injured. The immense crowd which gathered to watch the fire half an hour before their companions were able to rescue them. Nearly all of the city officials were at the city hall within forty-five min- utes after the first alarm was sounded. It was at first believed that the fire could be confined to the top floor, but when it was seen that there was dan- ger that it might destroy the entire bnilding a volunteer fores was organ- ized to carry out the more valuable documents and records from the va- rious offices. Public officials, citizens and firemen rushed into the building to carry out armfuls of big books. packages of papers, maps and furni- I ture. Notwithstanding their efforts many vahmble documents, maps. drawings and records were destroyed hy fire and water. The loss on the building is estimated at about $70.000. The loss on furniture is amply cov- ered by the $5,000 policy, but a loss of $o-,5.000 approxlmatcly was sustained on maps and blue prints of public work in progress and valuable records in the Health Department chemical and bac- teriological laboratories and in other departments, some of which must be replaced, and some of which cannot be replaced. The total loss, therefore, is approxi- mately $100,000. sad $27.500 of this is was treated to a thrilling spectacle not covered by insurance. ~. * __+_~ SILVER DEPRECIATION MAKES TROUBLE IN .THE PHILIPPINES Manila. Dec. 2.--The financial situa- tion in the Philippines islands is caus- ing much alarm. In an interview pub- lished in Manila. Henry C. Ide, chief of the Department of Finahee and Jus- tice, referred to the probable enforce- meat of an alteration in the immedi- ate future of the present parity of two Mexican dollars for one gold dollar. The United States postoffice here now refuses, except to government em- ployes, to issue money orders in ex. change for Mexican silver. The banks of Manila have been making from six to eight per cent. on exchange. Mer- chants and others are forced to carry their accounts in Mexican silver. The commercial community had relied up- on the United States Philippine Com- mission to continue the situation of Congress. This authorization has been requested by Charles A. Conant. spe- cial commissioner of the War Depart- ment to investigate the state of coin- age und banking in the Philippines and report to the secretary of war recom- mendations for the remedial legisla- tion, who is now in Washington, was the bearer of the commission's views of this matter. The stores of Manila are compelled to accept two Mexican dollars for one gold dollar, while Chinese speculators are paying as high as six per cent. prdmium in American paper money for American gold. Local bankers say that if the salaries of all Insular employes were paid in the local of Mexican currency, inde- pendently of the fluctuations of this two Mexican dollars for one gold dol- currency, and if the government had lar, which the commission itself ere-]not attempted to enforce a rate of ex- ated. The commission is unable to act I change, the present financial situation in the matter without dahe authority of ] would never have arisen. GOV. JENKINS BOUNCED FOR MISUSE OF OFFICE Washington, Dec. L--The President yesterday appointed Thomas B. Fergu- son governor of Oklahoma, vice Will- iam M. Jenkins. removed. In taking this action the President attached to the papers the following memorandum: "Governor Jenkins of Oklahoma is hereby removed because of his Im- proper connection with a contract be- tween the territory and the Oklahoma Sanitarium Company. The decision is based Wholly upon his own written statements, and 'his oral explanations of them at the hearing. "One of the duties of the territorial governor is to enter into ~the contra~t with son~e person or corporation far keeping the in~ane of the territory. Gover~or Jenkins made such a contract with the Oklahoma Sanitarium, a cor- poration;, the promoter,s of which re- served $10,000 of its Stock for the gov: ernor and subject to hls orders. "In the governor's explanation of the affair he says he told the promoters at the time they desired him to sanction the contract that it was an Important contract; that 'I had some friends whom I would like to have interests in the company, to which I owed some ob- ligations which I would not be able to pay with an appointment or anything of that kind.' T~e stock was delivered to ~a banker subject to the governor's order and was turned over to these friend~ whose political services tl~e governor thus sought to reward. '~The extent of the favor to the gov- ernor and his friends is suggested by the fact that the o~ly known sale of the stock since the contract was given out was at double the price paid for it. "As perfbrman~e of the contract was to be "the sole business of the corpora- tion, it is obvious that the territory was obligated to pay far more than the ser- vice was worth, or that its helpless wards were to have the enormous prof- its contemplated taken out of their keep. "The governor's confessed relations to the matter displayed such a lack of appreciation of the high fiduciary na- ture of the duties of his office as to unfit h!m for their further discharge. 'A sound rule of public policy and morals forbids a public servant from seeking or accepting any personal bene- fit in a transaction wherein he has a public duty to perform. , "A chancellor would not for one me- vigilant and exact-in the public In- terest."

Consumptlve~ ~efused Admlsslon~ New York, Dec, 2.--United States Judge Thomas, sitting in the Circuit Court in Brooklyn, has decided in fa- vor of the ruling of the Treasury De- partment at Washington in the case of Thomas Boden of Philadelphia. The decision prohibits Boden, a supposed consumptive, from remaining in the country. Boden's wife and child have remain. ed from choice at Ellis island. Judge ,Thomas decides that, as a simple ques- tion of facts was before him in the premises, he could not officially do oth- erwise than sustain the Treasury De- partment. No question of law, he o,b:_ served, has been sworn out by ]~oden a lawyer. The case has to do ~ith the right of consumptives to land as immi- grants. F. T. Tobin of Philadelphia, Boden'a law~er, obtained a stay from Judge Thomas pending an appeal which will be taken to the' Unlt~i States Circuit Court. Assistant Immigrant Agent McSwee- ney said that Bodens deportation would be deferred until the Appellate Oourt had passed upon the case. t 4* : ,,The Filibusters of Venezuela,, :: + Or the Trials of a Spanish Girl. $ 4* + ** By sewage w. novmNs. $ Copyrighted 1900 by Robert BonDer's Sons. CHAPTER XXV. Namampa Meets a Man. A solitary horseman was traveling slowly across the great llanos that stretched from the Cereal westward, wending his way toward the valley where the Castle of Salvarez was sit- uated. There was this peculiarity about this horseman; He had neither saddle, blanket nor bridle. Sitting awkwardly "upon the bare back of a clumsy little horse, he clung to its mane. and prodding it constantly with a stick to accelerate its pace, he jogged along as a sailor on horseback always Jogs. Suddenly the horseman bent his head and looked eagerly in the near distance. He saw a man afoot making toward the north with neither rapid nor steady steps. Drawing nearer to the lonely foot traveler the horseman's eye lit up, for he had recognized the face. "Hang me if that isn't old Namam- pa, the herb doctor," he said. "I saw his wizened old face at Lola's funeral and I never could forget it." Then shouting in Spanish: "Ahoy there, Namampa! Whither bound?" The Carib--for it was really he--- looked askance at the stalwart fellow who had thus addressed him~ and seemed about to quicken his pace. But it occurred to him that, whether on foot or mounted, the younger man was more thana match for him in speed, so he paused, as if hesitating. "I do not know you, senor," he said. "You have called my name, but many. know the herb-doctor of the Caribs whose faces are not remembered by me:" "Well, your face Is remembered by me well enough," was the reply. "No man who once saw it could easily for- get it. Not that it is so wonderfully beautiful either." The thin, withered lips of Namampa cracked into a smile. "Namampalsold," he said. "He is no longer good to look upon. But as the outward beauty passes away with age, then comes the full development of the soul--the brain. No, Namampa is no longer young nor handsome, but he knows many things." "A false estimate of your knowledge, old man," said the horseman. "I've heard it said that an. Indian charm- doctor, by his arts and humbugs, can make his tribe believe he is a great medicine man, but that he could im- pose on men who call themselves intel- ligent was a surprise to me." "Was a surprise to you!" repeated the Carib, stung with curiosity to know who the stranger was. and 'resentment that his own skill should be so belit- tled. "What do you mean? Who are you that you do not believe in Nam- ampa's skill?" "Well, as to that," replied the horse- man, "my name is Tempest, and I am one of those Americans that are not over-much loved by his Royal High- ness Philip the Fraud. I've just taken a canter cross country for my health, and now I'm returning to the Corbnl Valley to look up my friends. What I mean by doubting your skill is this: A glrl was lying ill in the Castle of SaN varez, and yea, of all the people this side of the Orinoco, were chosen as the wisest medicine-man and the most likely to pull her through. Did you do it? No. 'You mumbled your prayers and charmed the men who were well, but failed to affect the virl who was ill. That's a sore point with me, old Carib; not that I loved the girl herself, but I loved her lover, and when she died his heart was broke and the light went out of his life. That was the re- sult of your failure, Carib. I've a mind to cut your lying tongue out with this beautifUl knife I stole from the fellow who calls himself king." Namampa Jingled the gold he had received from Mattazudo, and looked calmly and contemplatively at Temp- est, as if considering some weighty question. "American," he said, "the skill of Namampa is for him who pays the best. I knew nothing of your friend. It was Philip, whom they call king, who wished to marry the girl, but Philip offered no gold. There was an- other who----" "Confound you!" exclaimed Tempest, leaping to the ground and springing upon the Carib. "Do you mean to say you Cook the gold of Gomez to murder Lola Oarza " As Jack relaxed his grip, the Indian whispered: "Let me up! Let me up! I--I can tell you something." Tempest took the Indian by the hair and raised him to his feet. "Tell on," he said; "and unless you tell something that pleases ms better than what you have told already you might better be saying your prayers." "Listen, then," the Carib began. "It is true I was called to the sick senorita. I gave her the powder I ,make from the bark of the cinchona tree She got well. But suddenly she seemed to die. It was not I that gave her the drug. I knew nothing of it. She was buried. You must have been there, for you say you saw my face at her funeral. It ]s true, I was there i have lived long, senor, and I know the faces of men. You saw Philip weep- ing. You saw the grief of Don Juan. You saw the gloomy face of Gomez. But did you see the gleam in Mattazu- do's eyes? No. Only I, the Indian, say that. I suspected a trick. There is a drug that suspends life for twen- ty-four hours. The half-breed must have known it, for the girl was not dead, hut drugged. I said to myself that I would watch Mattazudo and save the girl. I did watch him, and saw that, infitead of grieving, he was ex- ulting. I knew that he would dig up the senorita at night. But I got ahead of him, dug her out of her grave, and took her to my cottage and gave her powerful medicines that brought her back to life. The food came before I could take her to her father, but she is safe. and I am the one who saved her." It has already been noticed, perhaps, that Namampa had a delightful way of telling Just enough truth to suit his purpose, and strengthening it with a little skillful lying. "Well, I'm blessed." ejaculated Tempest. "Where is Lola now?" "Look, senor. Can you see that hill far to the south?" "Yes," said Tempest. "Whenthe flood came the land where my poor hut stood was under water. I took Don Juan's daughter upon that hill. There is an old stone temple there, high enough to be beyond the reach of the flood. There I found an Englishman. I explained all to him, and he promised to take care of her, and I left her with him. Mattazudo, had learned that I outwitted him and has sworn to kill me. He is very pow- erful among the Zambos, and I "am fleeing from him. I want your horse. senor. If the half-breed follows me on a horse he will surely overtake me and kill me." "Are you telling the truth?" asked Tempest. "I am, I swear it. The senorita is Safe." "By Jove! Well, old man, you came nearer death to-day than you ever were before. Here's the horse, take it and go." Namampa, chuckling at his own ready wit, mounted the horse, and Tempest started off toward Carib Hill. CHAPTER XXVI. Another Battle. It was quite a journey to the hill, and after To, ripest had trudged awhile, he began to regret that he had allowed the Carib to take his horse. But, he reflected, if the Indian's story was true, Lola was safe enough, and there was no need to hurry. It was not as if she were again in danger and he was hurrying to her assistance. 'He was rejoiced, after a tramp of several hours, to see the wooded slope of the hill before him, and in his eager hope to find Lola still unharmed and in the Englishman's care, he forgot the fatigue of the Journey and hurried up the hill. Suddenly he was startled by henri ing a shot and shouts as of a skirmish. Another rifle-shot--two, three in quick succession, and the shrieks of wound- ed Zambos. "An attack!" said Tempest. "The scoundrels have discovered the place of refuge, and have come to recapture Lola. I wish I had a gun. But, gun or not, I must have a hand in this." Armed only with the knife, ~he gal- lant American sprang uD the hill, toward the sound of battle. The course he had taken brought him up in front of the ruined temple, and before his presence was discov- ered he had ample opportunity of see- ing what was going on. He saw a crowd of at least a dozen of the dirty horde under Mattazudo. led by that worthy himself, who had, true to Lord Chugmough's prediction, returned to recover his lost v!ctim~ They hid themselves behind trees or rocks, and shot into the open end of the ruin, now half barricaded with stones and logs piled up by Lord Chugmough and William. . Behind this rude fortification he could now and then catch a glimpse of a head. and the quick aiming of a rifle as one of the Zambos showed himself, thereby drawing upon him the unerring fire of the Englishmen. Mobs like that led by Mal~tazudo lean mostl:~ to guerrilla warfare, and the bravest of these followers of the half-breed chose rather to shoot f~om ambush than in a fair fight. But, numerous as they were, they were at a marked disadva~ltage when pitted against the two Engiishmen, for the repeating rifles inside the ruin were aimed hy men of nerve, w~o~ hands were steady and whose eyes were sure, whereas, probably, not one of Mattazudo's heroes would have hit a man in full view one hundred yards away. When a Zambo fired, he was com- pelled to show enough of himself to give Lord Chugmough something to shoot at, and this mark was gener- ally hit. It did not take Mattazudo long to discov'br 4hat at the rate they were going the Englishmen would eventu- ally wipe his force out of existence. It became necessary, therefore, to boldly attack, the ruin in a body. The Englishmen would no doubt kill a few, but two men in a hand-to-hand fight must give way to overwhelming numbers, and the lives of a few wretches like the Zambos were not to be considered when the object to be gained was the possession of Lola Garza. So, keeping well under cover him- self--for the pleasure of possessing a beautiful girl would be naught to a dead man--he gave the order to charge. With a shout the Zambos dashed forward, two falling by the rifles of the Englishmen at the very entrance; but Tempest, as he saw one after an- other of the gang leap into the old ruin. knew that the gallant defenders of the temple and Lola Garza were doomed unless he. alone could aid them. Gripping his poniard tightly, he ut- tered a wild yell, and, rushing for- ward, he hurled himself over the bar- ricade and into the very thickest of the fight. "Here's one for Med,worth!" he shouted, as he drove his knife into the heart of a fellow whose gun was aimed at Lord Chugmough's breast. "Here's another for Crespo and the Republic!" he shouted again, giving another Zambo his death-blow. "Take one iu the name of Uncle Sam while we're at it!" he yelled, and another of the fiends of Matta- zudo bit the dust. His sudden advent disconcerted the Zambos and gave Lord Chugmough and William an opportunity to re- cover. But even now they were out- numbered four to one, and the fight seemed hopeless. Tempest seemed endowed with the strength of seven men. With the knife in his right hand he felled one after another, while his left was busy hurling his enemies from him. He felt a stinging pain in his side, and knew that he was wounded, but still fought on, unmindful of the hurt. Lord Chugmough managed to get close beside him, and so well did they work together, with William's calm and experienced assistance, that eight men were lying dead and dying :upon the earthen floor of the ruin, when the others, panic-stricken and defeat- ed, fled from the place. "William/' said Lord Chugmough, calmly, with his usual drawl, as soon as the last enemy had disappeared, "that was quitea littlel skirmish." Then turning to Tempest; he said: "And our success, sir, is due to your timely--Oh, I say there, old man, brads up! William, the brandy~-he has fainted." Tempest, who had turned to speak to Lola, who was cowering in a corner during the progress of the-fight, had reeled, staggered and would have fallen to th~ floor had not ~rd Chug- sough caught him in his arms. "It is Jack Tempest!" cried Lola. "Poor Jack! Poor fellow! Place him here on these skins. There-r-make him comfortable. Poor Jack! How ff0bly he fougl~t!" "He is a good one," said Lord Chugmough, working over Tempest as he spoke. In a short time Tempest revived enough to open hie eyes. He looked up at Lola and smiled. "Ah-~I'm--glad~you're safe," he whispered. She knelt down by his side. "Brave Jack." she said. "Is Arthur with you?" "No," was the whispered answer. "He's gone~we-Tyou know the castle --you died--we saw you put~grave--- Namampa told--me all--I was alone--- Arthur--Jacinta--the General's daugh- ter--gone--together--boat--I--I--'. , "My heavehl" exclaimed Lord Chug- sough, startled out of' his iron com- posure, "the wound is bleeding afresh!" gurgling sound in Tempest's throat had choked further utterance, and the poor fello~v's fingers gripped Lord Chugmough's. He was conscious, apparently, for he looked at Lola if he wished to say eomethlng, the Zambo had struck too-deep. In a f~w minutes the weary, eyes closed, the great chest gave a heave, and the life went out of Jack Tempest. (To be continued.)
