Boston Merchants Opposed to Any Expansion of the Currency. The Situation Growing Brighter Every Horn- Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune, Boston, Nov. 13,—The work of. the day after the fire has been distributed in adjuatingjinsur auce losses, pulling out.safes .from the ruins, hunting for valuables, debating about the ■way and the spot to commence business, and how to rebuild the burnt portion. Two things seem to be proved beyond preadventuro, that the insur ance companies over the civilized world are do ing honestly by the losers, and that the patent safes of nearly all descriptions come out of the furnace with their contents sound. The populace of Boston not possessed of property in the burnt district comes and goes as before. The city is entirely itself except as to wholesale trade, but the discussion, now general over a hundred little questions, shows that public spirit here is quite as chaotic as anywhere, and that intelligent classes are most at fault quarrelling amongst themselves, about small points of tradition, civic regula tions, and the question of municipal credit. Good sense seems to have a reaction in its favor, although it is not certain poli ticians will not issue fire bonds. On Tuesday afternoon the General Belief Com mittee of Boston, at the head of whom stood the Hon. Wm. Gray, met at the neat and untarnish ed City Hall, a few rods from the fire district, and just after Mr. Gray was done readingthe de spatches from Chicago, announcing the gift of I one hundred thousand dollars, and the departure I of the Committee of Visitation, the Governors of Massachusetts and Maine entered, Messrs. Washburne and Perham, They had quite entered I when still another despatch was received from Chicago from Hale, Ayer & Co., asking the priv- I ilege of giving one thousand dollars to the poor of Boston. It was stated, however, that only twenty-five individuals in all had applied for re- I lief. I Some controversy at once took place about re moving the Peace Jubilee Building, and Joaiah Quincy appealed against surrendering the Com* mon to business. lUh*. Perham made a speech alluding to the reciprocity of sympathy between Boston and Portland when each had taken fire. It would seem that after a while thebond of all cool civic sympathy will be in danger of being burned up. At the general meeting of citizens held at noon to-pay, atTremonfc Temple, Mayor Gaston presided, and, amongst the Vice Presidents were A. H. Rice, william Claflin, Sam Hooper, E. H. Bana, S. G. Howe, Phillips Brooks, Edward At kinson, and others. The following propositions were presented : That the Peace Jubilee build ing be removed; that the streets in the burnt district be immediately widened and straight ened ; that Mansard roofs and high buildings be discouraged; that a new Merchant’s Exchange be erected. It was moved that Congress bo petitioned to enlarge the new Post Office building, and give a draw-back on building material. The proposition to in crease the currency appeared to meet with no favor. All the above propositions were recom mended to the City Council- The Eev. Robert Laird Collier, of Chicago, thus expressed God’s ideas, to-day, amidst ap plause and cheers: “God says to Boston to-day, as he said to Chicago thirteen months ago, * See that you don’t bmid in the future six-story granite buildings and put on top of them great lumber-yards of timber; don’t build little, nar row streets.* Chicago is being rebuilt in beauty and grandeur, and you may be assured that Boston shall also be rebuilt, and the glory of the later shall be greater than of the former. Mr. Coltier and Chicago were very heartily cheered, and Henry Wilson was enthusiastically received. I send the statement of William Gray, Esq., as to the superficial view of things here. His statement is a marginal one, and considerably above the real losses. He says the area of the burnt district was about sixty acres, equal to the Common and Public Garden combined. It was the general impression that the city govern ment had power to do all this street widening and laying out, but ll Y£ s * ound not to be so, and thus the aid of the General Court was necessary The supposition is that $20,000,000 worth of buildings has been destroyed, some of these be ingvery poor, and the estimate for rebuilding was some $30,000,000, while the loss of property was from $50,000,000 to $80,000,000. llie Committee did not come to ask aid from the Commonwealth or from any person, but to ask that tho Legis laturo might be convened to allow the city to exercise the power of eminent domain and enable the city to borrow money to enable her people to rebuild their stores and to resume To-day the buxom women of New England have poured into town, full of health, inquis itiveness and anxiety to catch the evening t™?,- The rums constitute the true “Peace Jubilee ” of the period. ~T li e newsboys are crying catch-penny prints of OCOT pation, otherwise martial law, leads to an excess of drumming and parad yesterday the Mayor had to preach a sermon to the commanding officer of the day on . h ;“,™ CorCmon . lo “ B , cleann S of the City Hall, in and dignitaries. «.r.

Boston, Nov. 13.—A meeting of citizens to confer upon the present emergencies and future 9 0^ n S e ncieß, resulting from the fire, was held in Tremont Temple to-day, Mayor Gaston pre siding. A large number of names of the "most prominent citizens was announced as Yice Pres idents and officers of the meeting, including Henry Wilson, Yice President elect. In opening the meeting Mayor Gaston said; “ While I deeply regret the events so full of disaster and destruction which have led to this meeting, I re IVUMBER 87, joiCD to believe that you have come here with resolute hearts and determined wills, not to find fault, but with a spirit of sympathy and gener ous manhood to meet the present wants of th® hour.” [Applause.] He said they had met to relieve distress; to ' adopt means to restore to more than its original beauty, and certainly more than its original security, the bum* portion of th® city. If any had come for any other purpose, they had mistaken the spirit*of the meeting. [Applause.] He had received offers of sympathy and aid from all parts of the country, and h® would be false to the city if ho failed thus pub licly to acknowledge gratitude for such expres sions. From our own citizens, too. had coma manifestations of the same spirit which made him rejoice that God had given to them large hearts and large means. Other addresses were made, and resolutions were adopted in favor, of reconstructing the street lines of the burnt district on a better plan, prohibiting Hansard roofs; also, in favor of erecting a merchant's Exchange in some central locality; favoring an extra session of • the .Legislature to authorize the issue of build ing bonds by the city, and for an application ta the General Government for an extension of tha new Post Office.building upon a burned-over lot adjoining, and for an act oy Congress allowin'** drawbacks on building materials. 9 On searching the ruins on the site of Nisona & Co. s store on Washington street, this morn ing, a small bundle of charred human remains was found. It is impossible to identify the re mains, bnt it is known that two men perished in the fire at that place. Considerable progress was made to-day in clearing the debris, recovering safes, and level ing the walls in the burnt district. The mili tary guard will bo continued until the burned vaults and safes containing valuables are re covered. The city police are needed on their regular duty. Ail bar-rooms remain closed. The reappearance of gas light, after two nights’ darkness, gives the city a more cheerful appear ance, and is appreciated, particularly by the newspaper offices. INSURANCE AND BUSINESS. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune, Boston, Not. 13.—The boot and shoe peo ple will probably take quarters on a piece of ground called “Fort Hill,” which is bounded by Broad, Oliver, Purchase, and High streets. Hero the City of Boston ownsßo,ooo feet of ground, ob tained by cutting down a hill and dispossessing the residents. Adjacent to this tract are many vacant lots belonging to some private individu als, and near the India wharf is still another un occupied tract, making in all about 200 lots, which will accommodate the 300 bumt-out boot and shoe firms. It is proposed to set up corru gated iron buildings here, one story high, to cost apiece about SI,BOO. The boot and shoe people are most clamorous and anxious for the imme diate resumption of business. I can do no better about showing the state of public feeling than to give you the tone of to day’s press. The Boston Herald was the onlypaper to keep reporters out to watch the fire on Saturday night. The following is its editorial comment to-day: “ There has been a great loaa, but it* will be widely distributed; and, on the othec hand, when the insurance shall have been ad justed, there will be a sudden realization proba bly, of not less than $75,000,000. If the worlc. of rebuilding costs $30,000,000, as is estimated* not more than three or four millions % month will be expended, 'and who can doubt* that this money will be forthcoming as rapidly as it can be used ? We are glad to say that wa see no occasion for the issue of city bonds to aid in rebuilding. It is a power which should bo used only in the most desperate necessity. Tha apparentreadiness of the Secretary of the Treas ury to expand the currency shows another dan ger. He has no right to do it. There is nothing in the state of affairs to justify a stretch of power. We earnestly hope that the ac tion of the City Council allowing ths use of the Common for business purposes will be rescinded. The City Govern ment have no right to grant the Common to any body, and there is no occasion for a stretch of power. We may as well proceed decently ancj in order. In times of excitement the most gush ing and impulsive men speak first and loudest,, and it seems like an ungracious task to opposa any well-meant expression of sympathy or prof- I fered aid to the victims of a fire. But we must remember that Boston is still a very wealthy | city, with investments all over the country with a heavy reserve capital which" tho necessity of rebuilding will call into use. We see no necessity for an extra session of tho Legislature. The interests of Boston had better be trusted to its own business men, who know what they need and what they can afford. The Legislature having been called, wo hope it will pass such laws as are necessary to authorize the improvement of the streets in tho burnt district, and to secure proper safeguard in the manner of rebulding, and then adjourn.” 1 The Advertiser, which put out on its bulletin board twice the loss made by the fire on Mon day, and will withdraw it in time to savo its cred it, the Boston Herald position. It says tbia morning: “There seems to have been some talk in Wash ington and New York, but very little in Boston, we are glad to say, in favor of issuing more of the forty million reserve to meet the emergency; and we are told as the result of a conference be tween Hr. Boutwell and the President yester day, that, while it is the opinion that no addi tional currency is yet needed, Hr. Bontwell la prepared to move on a moment’s notice, and will act decisively should a part of the reserve be actually needed. This doubt ful way of speaking of a very grave matter of public policy, as if the loss by fire of sor 6 per cent of the valuation of a single prosperous city could be a decent ex cuse for it, is partly owing to the exaggerated accounts, which strangers among us have sent abroad, of the magnitude of the disaster. It is the business of our merchants to remove this erroneous, and in every way injurious, im pression, and this can be done in no better way than by showing a determination to make the most of their own resources without public as sistance, trusting for their return to the im proved credit which would inevitably result therefrom.” *Tis ludicrous to read of what strangers are related to have said about -the Boston fire, con sidering what a figure the Advertiser placed upon the loss on its bulletin board last Monday. It comes to the, average of sense, however, in these paragraphs which close my despatch. The tendency is already very strong, and the influences behind it are powerful, to make the city a special partner in private enter prises of various kinds. It iff worth while to take advantage of the present stress of fortune, which we all hope, and have reason to believe, will prove but tem porary, to enlist the city to the amount of $20,000,000 or more in the building enterprises of its citizens. It is represented that individual credit is not adequate to the present emergency, and, if it were, the resources are wanting. It seems to us that a city, whose valuation in 1870 wasi by the census, $810,000,000, and which has increased at the rate of about $70,000,000 an nually since that time, should not say the means of repairing a loss of fifteen or twenty millions at the most are not to bo had without drawing upon the city's credit. It is a confession of weakness, and the city is not weak. Afi to the Chicago relief, this is what the Advertiser says to-day: “Before the firemen had been successful in hemming in the fire, so that they could assure us that it would, spread no further, Chicago, which suffered so much more than we only thirteen months ago, tele graphed to the Mayor that she would send us help. Other cities speedily followed witn generous offers of assistance. We ‘have not seen any of the replies made to these despatches, but we learn from Chicago that Mayor Gaston has telegraphed to the Mayor of that city that Boston will gratefullv accept the pecuniary assistance. We can appre ciate the feeling which prompted the Mayor’s reply. Wo do not wish to seem ungracious when friends far and near are so generous, but we think the language used was calculated to convoy the wrong impression. We cannot imagine how the money to be sent us can prop erly be used up. To the middle of yes terday forenoon but twenty-five applications had been made at Charleston street for relief in con- sequence of the fire. The district destroyed in cluded but a small number of dwelling houses. We do not believe that §IOO,OOO in all would be insufficient to make good all the property of the Eoorer classes which was destroyed by the fire, hould millions be given us, it would-be a misap propriation of it to bestow it upon others than poor people. We could not grant the use of is Continued on the Elahth Eaae,
