Mr Lomasney Claries Lolly-im on Park Loan Act. Calls it Most Remarkable Piece of Legislation. Half Sum Appropriated to Go to Streets. Steadway from Marine Park is Now Assured. The board of aldermen held a special meeting late yesterday afternoon at the request of the mayor, pud accepted the park loan act passed by the legislature, which calls for an appropriation of Sl.-OOO,OOO. The board also appropriated 51,-000,000 for the laying out and construction of highways. At 5 p m chairman Sanford called to order. The following message from the mayor was then read, after which the board took a recess, subject to the call of the chair: "Gentlemen, on my return to the city this morning I find that some uncertainty exists as to the status of the loan recently authorized by the legislature for park purposes. An order accepting the act has passed the common council and was referred at the last meeting of your honorable board to the committee on streets and sewers. "If, as I assume, there is no opposition to the acceptance of this act upon its merits, it seems to me very desirable that action should be taken at once, so as to enable the park department to arrange their work accordingly at the earliest possible moment. "The calls for street construction under the so-called board of survey laws, are becoming very frequent, and it is obvious that an additional loan will be needed for this purpose. I would therefore recommend the immediate passage of an order authorizing the borrowing of 51,000,000 for this purpose, to be expended for street and sewer construction under these laws “The approach of summer makes it very desirable that the park police force should be increased in number, and I would recommend the passage of an order transferring 55000 from the reserve fund to enable the park department to increase the number of police. "Respectfully submitted, N. Matthews Jr, Mayor.” The board retired as the committee on streets and sewers, and discussed the different appropriations. The members returned to the aldermanic chamber after a recess of about half an hour. The act was then read, and the question came on the acceptance of it by the board. Before the vote was taken Alderman Lomasney said: "I will vote against the acceptance of the act, as I consider it one of the most remarkable pieces of legislation ever accepted by the city of Boston. "The thing was lobbied through the state house, depriving the city of Boston of many needed improvements. I am pleased that the matter has presented itself in this form, for rometime we will want to inquire who these men were that pushed it through. “New sewers and improvements in streets are needed at the North end, yet we cannot get them. No objection is made here to the borrowing of 51,000,000, which every one admits cannot be used until next year. "It is time enough to borrow the money when the time comes to spend it. It is interesting to know that this was done on the eve of a certain man's getting out of office as park commissioner. The money will be charged to 1895; why is it borrowed now? I do not think it proper to pass the act.” The vote on the acceptance of the act was then put. and passed by a vote of 9 to 2, Aldermen Lomasney and Bryant voting in the negative. The report of the committee on streets and sewers, and an order providing for the 51,000,000, was then passed by a unanimous vote—ll yeas. By the acceptance of the act and the appropriation made, it will enable the park department to make arrangements for the construction of the steadway between Marine park and Everett aq, in Dorchester, and of certain buildings and other park work which have not been begun. It will also secure the completion of the park work now under way. An order was passed appropriating 51,000,000 for the laying-out and the construction of highways, and the city treasurer is authorized to issue negotiable bonds or certificates of indebtedness of the city to the amount stated, and to sell them, and to apply the proceeds thereof. The room in ward 25 heretofore used for ward purposes has been leased to the Brighton post, G. A. R., and it was recommended that 51500 be appropriated for the hiring of another place suitable for ward purposes. An order was passed to the effect that the city auditor be authorized to transfer from the reserve fund 51500, to constitute a special appropriation for wardrooms, to be expended by the superintendent of public buildings. An order was passed transferring 55000 from the reserve fund to the appropriation for park department, for the maintenance of park police. The board then adjourned, having been in session but an hour and a half. More Fighting in Brazil.

At Carterville Backbone of Trouble is Broken. PEORIA, 111, June 6-A terrible fight occurred at the mine of E. B. Little & Co, in Tazewell county, a mile anet a half from Wesley City and four miles from this city, today, and as a result one man Is dead, two are fatally in jured, and several others ore suffering severely, arid the entire plant, representing an investment of fully 530,000, is a smouldering heap of ruins. The casualties include the following: Ed Blower, shot in the right side of the neck and instantly killed. William Dickson, shot through the right shoulder; injury probably fatal. James Little, shot in the right breast; bleeding internally and suffering great pain; will probably die. Peter T. Little, one of the owners of the mine, left eye shot out. Ed Little, another of the owmers of the mine, shot in elbow, not serious. In addition to these there are a number of others who show marks of bullets, and whose escape from instant death may be termed miraculous. There have been rumors of something of this sort for a number of weeks, or ever since the strike was declared. John R. Hilliard operated this mine formally years, but when he retired some time ago he leased the property to E. Little & Co, and they have since made many improvements, including th- erection of new buildings and the putting in of additional machinery. When the general suspension was ordered in April their men refused to quit, stating that they had no grievance whatever. So many threats were heard from all quarters, however, that the company secured a number of repeating rifles, and thoroughly armed their men, and prepared for any difficulty that might result. These guns and the ammunition were kept in the tower, where they would be the handiest, and which commands the best view of the surrounding country, for the mine nestles in a secure hollow surrounded by high trees and dotted here and there with dwellings. On several occasions the striking miners have visited the locality and demanded that the mine shut down. It has done bo for a day or two at a time, but ulways managed to resume operations after the strikers had left. This caused them to become ugly, and all through this week rumors have been rife of serious trouble. Sheriff Herman Frederick of Pekin has been summoned two or three times, but, after visiting the mine, has always returned to his home in Pekin with the impresses that there would be no trouble. lie was summoned again this morning, and the appeal today was more urgent than over. It was reenforced by a request from Sheriff Berry of Peoria county that precaution be taken to guard against a raid by the strikers. Tile time was short. Sheriff Frederick received the double appeal, and prepared to protect the men at work. He hastily swore in about 25 men from among the best residents of Pekin, and left with them for the mine. A special train conveyed them. They were unarmed. Pekin formerly had a militia company, and an effort was made to secure their arms, when it was found that there were only eight guns left, and these were without ammunition. The deputies, under the leadership of the sheriff, thus went to the scene of hostilities without any protection for themselves or any one else. They reached the locality shortly after 2 o’clock, and all was quiet. The mine was in operation, and there was no sign of the tragedy that was soon to follow. After waiting around for more than three-quarters of an hour the sheriff came to the conclusion that the services of himself and the deputies would not be required, at least today, and started out to walk to Wesley City, a short distance aw'ay. He had scarcely gone 800 yards when he met the body of strikers, who were swarming up through the hollow. They were for the moBt part from this county, in the vicinity of Bartonville, though they had received reinforcements from among the strikers of Wesley City. When the sheriff saw them approaching he threw up his hands, and ordered them to halt, which they did, but only for an instant. He called for the spokesman of the strikers, and when that individual had presented himself, called on him in the name of the people to disperse, and not molest the men at work or the property of the company. The strikers crowded around the sheriff and his feeble posse, and notified him that they had come for business. They proposed to drag the men from the little mine and capture the arms known to be secreted there even at the loss of life and property. This was said while additional strikers were com- Continued on the Fifth Page. MILAN’S MAGNIFICENT GALLERIA. Great Arcade, Combining Business with Pleasure, Which Boston Men Propose to Duplicate. VIEW OF THE CHIEF ENTRANCE. It sounds chimerical to announce the conversion of the largest block of Boston’s shopping district into a magnificent arcade, an architectural peer of the famous Victor Emanuel gallery at Milan. The idea of predicting the disappearance of these old little brick and stone structures, that have for years been the marts for tho city shopping, and telling the story of an architectural masterpiece calculated to revolutionize all existing methods and conditions seems like an oriental dream. Yet a plan is now under way which, if it materializes, as it seems in a fair way to do, will mean the erection of a building which for magnificence of construction as well as for novelty will be equaled by no city in this country, and give to Boston a fame which only one city abroad now enjoys. In brief, several prominent real estate men of this city have been for many months quietly at work arranging for the possession of the entire block of land and buildings bounded by Bromfleld, Washington, Winter and Tremont sts, a huge slice of the shopping district. Their plan is, as soon as the control of this block is obtained, to remove all existing structures and erect in its place a magnificent arcade, where a large part of the retail business of the city, of all natures, can be concentrated, and the stores provided with a unique, elegant and attractive environment.    g By this scheme everything is placed indoors, and, instead of being on the street, the stores will open upon broad covered thoroughfares, free from wet and cold In winter and the hot sun in warm weather. The site selected for the carrying out of the plan indicates the magnitude of the undertaking. When the amount of retail business which is at preseht concentrated within those limits is considered the idea seems even more prodigious. But although the cost of such a structure will be enormous, the gentlemen interested in the plan are confident that the advantages to be secured by It will be such to the merchants, as well as to the public, that the rentals can be placed at a sufficient figure to yield a profit to the promoters. The names of the men foremost in the undertaking cannot be announced, as they have not been able to proceed much farther yet than the preliminary work of the enterprise. As it is, however, some progress has been made beyond the mere discussion of the possibilities of the scheme. Some of the property has already been practically secured. Music hall has already been bonded, as well as several other prominent estates on Bromfleld and Winter sts, and with this start the ultimate success of the undertaking is assured, claim the men interested. With the purchase already of the lot on the Back Bay for a new music hall, and the willingness of the subscribers to construct a building there in the near future, the old building has not proved a very large obstacle to the promoters of this big idea. It is the smaller estates that are expected to hold off. While the land has not all been secured, they are formulating rough plans of the idea which they wish to carry out in this great structure. It will be modeled in the main after the large Victor Emanuel arcade at Milan, which has for nearly 30 years been a great attraction for visitors to, the Italian city, as well as a paying investment for the English company which owns it. This arcade, or "galleria,” as it Is called, was built in 1865, and is the grandest thing of the kind in the world. It is constructed in the most prominent part of the city, having the cathedral opposite one entrance and the celebrated Beala theater at another. The Milan arcade has among its tenants the largest and finest establishments of all lines of business of the city, and the shoppers In that city almost always go to the arcade to trade, no matter w'hat they wish to purchase. By locating the Boston counterpart in the midst of the shopping district the promoters hope to achieve the same results, the centralization of the retail trad'* amid most magnificent and comfortable surroundings. As In Milan, the arcade would present another aspect beside that of an extra-' ordinary trading place. It would become a famous promenade and pleasure resort. In the Italian city, which has extremes of heat and pold, like Boston, the arcade has Become a public blessing, tot it is crowded during the evenings and afternoons by the loiterers, who find it a most congenial shelter from rain or snow and a pleasant retreat during the heated term. Its restaurants and cafes have their crowds of pleasure seekers, who enjoy the mere hovering about, looking at the passing throng, evening after evening, along the brilliantly lighted thoroughfares. The cut which The Globe prints gives an idea of the main thoroughfare of the Victor Emanuel arcade, from the main entrance, which is opposite the cathedral. The high glass domed roof conveys some idea of the freedom with which light is distributed over the interior. The Boston arcade will not be In form exactly like the Milan "galleria,” as the block of land is of such a nature tnat In order to utilize the space to the best advantage it will be necessary to make a departure in the exterior lines. But the general idea and interior arrangement, all of the prominent architectural features, will be taken from the Milan arcade. The cut gives the arcade the appearance of being a three-story affair, surmounted by a heavy cornice, but it is five stories high along the thoroughfares inside. The entrance is more of the nature of a triumphal arch than anything else. Upon a casual observation something like the main entrance to the new union station here is noticed, the detailed elaborations being more ornate. As indicated in the cut, the main entrance, a full arch in form, is prolonged on either side by porticos where promenaders can circulate and find a welcome retreat on rainy days or shade on sunny ones. The second story extends over the sidewalk of the adjoining street, with a series of small arches, from which depend shades. This has been a most welcome feature in Milan. The arcade is of course an imposing structure from an exterior point of view, but the interior takes such precedence in the visitor's estimate that no one ever thinks of describing the outside of the building. It is built In the form of a Latin cross, or very much like two great thoroughfares of unequal lengths, one bisecting the other. It is about 960 feet long, each wing is 48 feet wide, and the cornice is 94 feet from the ground. The arcade has a frontage of 950 feet on the Piazza del Duomo, which, lf this idea were carried out, with a long frontage on Washington, Tremont, Bromfleld and Winter sts, would make that block truly most imposing. The interior is practically a glazed public promenade. The two thoroughfares which form the two arms of the cross are paved with marble and Inclosed in marble walls, while on either side of the ways rise five stories of stores. In these stores can be found dealers of evej;y variety of merchandise; here are gathered the bon ton merchants of the city, while scattered along the way are cafes, restaurants, apartments, Ate. It is as much of a pleasure ground as an avenue of trade.    __ A writer describing the arcade, said it is as wide as a street and as high as a cathedral. The latter simile refers to the monster tower which arises from the point of intersection of the two arms of the cross. The roof above the two thoroughfares is of glass, dome-like in shape, and is practically a double roof, as it is made of two partitions of glass, one six feet above the other. The light coming through is as clear as it Is outside, while at night, with over 2000 electric lights placed in this glazed dome, a literal flood of light is poured into the arcade in such a quantity that subordinate lighting of the stores during the evening is unnecessary. There is no obstruction of the promenades. as the stairways to the apartments above the ground floor are all Inside the lfne of the store space. The crowning grandeur of the interior is, however, at the point of the intersection of the two arms of the cross or the two thoroughfares. They meet in the form of a large octagonal open space, over which there rises an imposing octagonal dome terminating In tower, the crowning stone of which is 185 feet above the walk. This makes a place for public assembly which is un equaled, and which in Boston would place the common way in the back ground as the popular rendezvous. The architects and artists took advan tag© of the opportunities offered for embellishment and decoration in this oc tagonal-domed square in the arcade, for here are placed at the hight of the first story, statues of 16 of Italy’s Illustrious men. Were this Idea carried out in Boston it W'ould furnish the city with a hall for statues which could be made most valuable and attractive. The upper part of the dome is ornamented with elaborate frescoes, representing Europe, America, Africa and Asia, while at the four entrances there are frescoes of art, agriculture, science and industry. The authors of the various guide books and directories to Milan are unan lmous in the statement that the rentals for places in the arcade have continued so high that a substantial profit must be realized from it, and the apartments never go a begging. To give some idea of the time it would take to carry out this plan now under way In Boston, the arcade in Milan, built nearly 30 years ago, was finished in two years after the actual work was commenced. It cost 51.600,000. This arcade has been taken as their idea by the men interested in erecting one for Boston, and has been found to be so well adapted to ail the uses to which it has in ths years past been devoted that only a change of form to conform to the land available would probably be made. There is a famous arcade on the cor ner of Unter der Linden and Friedrich st, Berlin, but it is smaller than the one in Milan, and is not believed to be as practical for Boston’s purpose as the “Galleria” of the Italian city. To secure the land bounded by these four streets the Boston men have un dertaken a big task.

No One Seems Satisfied Witt’ What Was Done. Opponents of Meigs Bill Make a Point Measure Recommitted to the Finance Committee. By Its action yesterday In nnseatlnf Representative Doyle and permitting his colleague, Representative Hayes, to retain his seat, the republican majority in the house of representatives gave another exhibition of the apparent inconsistency which has characterized it throughout the session. Petitioners and the two sitting members alike, as well as the auditors In general, were dumbfounded at the announcement of the decision. It was a decision which, in the opinion of the election committee, and of prominent republicans as well as democrats outside, was entirely at variance with the logic of the situation. Representative Bliss of West Springfield, it may be said, voiced the general sentiment in opposition to the remarkable verdict when, after the final vote was announced, he declared that ths republican majority in the house, by reason of its peculiar and illogical action, had stultified itself, and had mad* a decision which for all time would bs referred to as a curiosity in point ol law.    _ Debate on the question at issue, which had begun on Tuesday, extended all through yesterday’s session until 4.10 in the afternoon, when, in accordance with the vote taken earlier in the day, the discussion ended. At that time the prevailing impression was that the report of the committee in favor of the sitting members would be rejected, and that both Hayes and Doyle would be unseated. Gradually, however, the rumor circulated throughout the house that Representative Doyle, by reason of his brother's position as a precinct officer in ward 17 in the last election, was likely to receive more severe treatment than his colleague at the hands of the republicans. This rumor, it will appear, took a tangible form as the voting proceeded. Three votes were taken, the first on the question of substituting the resolve offered by Mr Bailey of Arlington as ae amendment to the cornute© report, providing for the unseating of Hayes and Doyle. The resolve was substitutsd by a yea and nay vote, 123 to 91, an follows) Yeas—Messrs Abbott, Alden, Austin, Bacon, Bailey, C. G. Bancroft, Barker, C. W. Bates, F. H. Bates, J. L. Bates, Beckford, F.
