Fire i Aim. m T'lrprapu? Dear bir: I have yours of the -Tib. in referent* to the fire at "Michker i riare," ai><1 am somewhat surprised not only at j its contents, but aim at the statements of the morning papers in referent* to the same m?t i ter. Now, according to operator Squires'own ?t*Um<-nt yesterday morning, the first disturb ance which* he noticed or heard upon the wires *? only "two or three minutes" before the alarm came in from box ?i, in response to which the bells were struck. This d?ea not account fnr thirty reputes'delay, to wit: the time which elapst d from 12:.10, when the first attempt wa? made to give the alarm by the police officer, and 1 JO, when the alarm was finally given in imme diate answer to an alarm from box 68. The police officers' statements are as follow*. Tlx: At 12.99 a. m. an attempt was madejto give an alarm from box bS. Getting no respen-e box 43 was turned in, and it may have been simultaneously with the first attempt at bo\ fi*. The officer who first went to 6? then went to 4.1 and turned it in again, and getting no re sponse went to 74 and turned it in, bat got no response from it. An officer then went to the stat ion-house and telegraphed over the police wires to strike box 6#. The record at the sta tion bonse was that this dispatch was sent at 1.20 a. m., and the record in the fire-alarm office, I am tokl, shows that the alarm was finally fivt n at 1:20. Now it is not probable, nor is ft ardlv possible, that all this delay was canned by | dice officers turning in two boxes at the ??me time. At the outset it is possible that two boxes wore turned In simultaneously?but the subsequent attempts to turn in or' give an alarm co.ild hardly have been thwarted in that way. Nor <lo the statements of Mr. Squires tally with the theory that the delay was caused by simulta neous alarms from two boxes. I shall cause a thorough investigation of all the actions of the police officers In this affair, and 11? there is any fault on their part, will apply the proper rem edy; but m the meantime must express my sur prise at the baste which has been manifested to throw the entire blame of the unfortunate de lay ujon the police officers. I do not think the facts in the case justify such a course. Very truly, yours, A. C. Richards. Major and Superintendent. ? Our Public HebMla?The Voided Kpell. The greatest interest is felt by teachers and scbolsrs in the result of the great spelling matches to come ofi on Friday afternoon of this week. Intense excitement prevails insorae quarters, and the most strenuous exertions are Wing put forth to gain the golden prixes.
