History Made by the Gallant Vermonter and His Loyal Men One Year Ago Today—May I Made a Holiday by Legislatures of Three States. r.y unanimous and spontaneous consent today will go down in history as “Dewey day,’’ and as long as the republic stands, as long as deeds of valor and daring and feats of generalship and seamanship are eherlshecT by a patriotic people, the day will be enthusiastically observed. Three states—Pennsylvania, California and South Carolina—have declared May I a state holiday. At all of tho naval stations today an admiral’s salute will be fired. The day murks the beginning of a new epoch in American history. George Dewey, the man who in one day made his bare name bigger than all the titles that could be fastened to It, is a strictly American product. For nearly IO generations, covering the greater part of three centuries, the blood that feeds his cool, clear brain has drawn its vigor from Yankee soil. lie Is an American, and that is enough. Just as his name needs no official flourishes, his fame has no use for heraldic tinsel, and the pedigree cranks who profess to trace back his lineage through English barons and medieval kings even to the pagan gods, will do well to carry their wares to a cheaper market. George Dewey is no proper subject for trifling of this sort. He was born in 1837, In Montpelier, Vt. His father was Julius Y. Dewey, a physician of Montpelier. He was a fine, dignified specimen of an old-school New England gentleman, very scrupulous about small things. He was one of the first communicants of Christ Episcopal church In Montpelier. George Dewey’s mother died when he was 5 years old. His inseparable companion and closest confldahte from Infancy was his sister, now Mrs Mary P. Greeley of Montpelier. His Training and Marriage. It was at Norwich university, at Northfield, Vt, that George Dewey learned the manual of arms and prepared for the military academy at Annapolis, to which he was appointed in 1854. He was graduated in 1858, and during the war of the sixties he saw service with Farragut. It was when he was 30 years old and stationed at the Kittery navy yard, oft Portsmouth, N H, that he first met Miss Suede Goodwin and fell desperately In love with her. She was the daughter of the fine old fighting governor of New, Ieabod Goodwin. Commander Rhind of the navy yard, who outranked Dewey by a good many numbers, was also deeply attached to Miss Goodwin, and for a long Urns all Ports mouth wondered which of the two navy officers would be Miss Goodwin’s choice. Dewey won and Commander Rhind sailed on a fine old ship, the Narragansett, just about the time that Susie Goodwin and George Dewey were married, Oct 24, 1867. Mrs Dewey died, after giving birth to a son, in 1872, while her husband was on the European station. The son, George Goodwin Dewey, is in New York. From 1872 to 1876 Dewey superintended the Pacific coust survey. He was made a captain in 1884 and chief of the bureau of equipment and recruiting in 1889. From that time up to 1897, the greater part of his time was spent in Washington. No one in all Washington was more sought after in clubs or a greater favorite in society than the quiet, kindly, gentle man of the world, George Dewey. He had a suite of. apartments in the Metropolitan club, and was for years a member of Its house committee. He was scrupulous In his attention to dress. He is always fond of a good cigar and a good story. When at last, in 1897, he was ordered to sea again as commodore of the Asiatic squadron, Col Archibald Hopkins proposed the toaM, which became a famous prophecy, at a dinner given Dewey by his old friends at the Metropolitan club: Fill all your glasses full tonight; The wind Is off the shore, Aud he it feast or he It light, We pledge the Commodore. Through days of storm, through days of calm, OU board Pacific seas; At anchor off the isle of Palm Or with the Japanese. Ashore, ailoat, on deck, below, Or where our bulldogs roar, To hack a friend or breast a foe, We pledge the Commodore. We know our honor'll he unstained Where’er his pcuuaut files; Our rights respected aud maintained Whatever power defies. And when he takes the homeward tack, . Beneath ga admiral’s flag, We’ll hail the day that brings him hack, Aud bure another jug. Otis Not Taking Chances With Filipinos, He is Preparing to Prosecute VZ ar. Lawton Ordered Back to Augal. MacArthur is at Work Repairing Bridges. All This Despite the Bright Outlook tor Peace. Filipino Congress Will Meet Today. ila Cheerful at Prospect of Retire lo Peace. MANILA, April 30, 8.15 p rn-While it is the general expectation among Americans that the Filipino emissaries will return with revised proposals from Gen Antonio Luna, Maj Gen Otis Is not letting this prospect interfere with his preparations for pushing the war. Yesterday he ordered Maj Gen Lawton to' return to Angat, a few miles northwest or Norzagaray, and not to advance aggressively while the negotiations are pending. Gen MacArthur is apparently acting on the same policy; but he is repairing bridges und strengthening tho lines of his force, which s stretched out with a four-mile frolic And within a quarter of a mile of the enemy. The possibilities of peace are gratifying to a large majority of the army who have regarded the war as an un pleasant duty that must bo performed according to American traditions. Manila is cheerful over the prospect of a return to normal life, though there are skeptics who remark that a truce would enable the Insurgents to rest until the rainy season, upon which they have been depending as an important ald. The prisoner, -eport that there are 75,000 refugees north of San Fernando This is not impossible, considering the thickly populated region which the Americans have cleared. It seems also that smallpox is spreading among them The so-called Filipino congress will meet at San Fernando tomorrow. When Dean Worcester of the U S Philippine commission, who accompanied the Filipino emissaries from Calumpit, said to Col Manuel Arguelles that the Americans were under no ob ligations to refrain from lighting, the Filipino officer replied:    “Would you fight while we are discussing terms of peace?” Mr Worcester responded with the aug gestion that an armistice would give tho Filipino leaders time to escape. “By God, where w'ou>d we escape to?” the Filipino exclaimed, referring In this to the menacing hostile tribes behind the Filipino tribes. Col Argutdles told a correspondent that he was much disappointed in the results of his mission. He said, also, that Aguinaldo expected Calumpit to be the cemetery of the American army. Lieut Col Wallace of the 1st Montana regiment, Maj Adams and Maj Shields, who slept Friday night in Gen Luna's camp, where they went to inform the Filipinos that their envoys would return in safety, found the Filipino commander cordial, the Filipino troops removing their hats as the Americans passed. The Filipinos complained to them that the Americans used explosive bullets, which is not true. The American officers retorted that tho copper shells used by the Filipinos are worse than explosive bullets. Gen Luna said he regretted being obliged to kill Americans, but that was his business. Gen Wheaton entertained Col Arguelles and Lieut Jose Bernal, and provided them with horses to return to their carap. In the course of the conference yes- A BIO Several Firemen Injured and Loss of $100r OOO in the Block 240 to 260 Dover St. Sensational Incidents Were Plenty end Only Hard Work Prevented a Conflagration.

Excepting possibly cooler northerly to easterly winds In northern parts of New England, It promises to continue warm with fresh to brisk southwest winds. For more than three hours yesterday afternoon a fierce lire raged in the center of a score of buildings In a souare bounded by Harrison av, Albany, Troy and Dover Hts, numbered 240 to 260 Dover st. A six-storv brick block was totally destroyed and .several small wooden buildings were slightly damaged. From the time of the discovery of the fire until two hours later more than $3,000,000 worth of property was in danger. Cool headcdness, good judgment and hard work on the part of the firemen prevented a conflagration. The block burned, with engines, shafting, etc, was valued at $50,000. The loss to the occupants of the building Is estimated to be about the same amount, making the total loss In the neighborhood of $100,000. Between 300 and 400 men and women will be thrown out of employment temporarily. The building and its contents were well insured. The Are was attended by many sensational incidents. Hot ulr explosions were frequent. Five llremen were slightly Injured, and IO of the superior officers had a narrow escape from death. The injured are: District Chief John J. Grady of Roxbury, painfully cut and bruised about the head, hands and lower limbs, but not seriously. M. Bryant of the repair department, hands and arms badly lacerated. Charles E. Whiting of engine I, foot lacerated by a truck pick. Assistant superintendent Bylngton of the repair department, bruises, lacerations and shock. Baseman Sibley of engine 12, lacerations and bruises. With the exception of Whiting, these men were all injured in a hot-air explosion early In the fire.-, Members of the department who went through the terrible experience wonder that they are alive to tell the story. The Injured men, together with Chief Louis P. Webber, Lieut Walter Marshall of chemical engine 4, District Chief Patrick Keyes, District Chief John Grady, Lieut O’Brien of water tower I, Lieut McDonald, Capt Smith, Capt Gaffey, Lieut Kenney, and Capt Lefavor of engine 24, who is acting district chief In place of Chief Sawyer, who Is IU, were gathered about in groups In front of the building at the time of the accident. They had been on the scene only a few minutes, and were making preparations to fight the fire, which was roaring like a furnace iii the big building. Without warning came an explosion, caused by the heat. Doors were burst open, and the air was filled with glass from shattered windows. Flame, clouds of black smoke and hot air came with the explosion. Nearly all of tho firemen mentioned were thrown to the pavement by the force of the explosion. Some were stunned and others cut by falling glass. Firemen ecattered about In different places rushed to their assistance, thinking the wall had fallen. The clouds of smoke shut the men from the view of the rescuers, and for a few minutes there was Intense anxiety on the part of those who had heard the explosion and knew the dangerous position the leading lire fighters were in. Fortunately no one was seriously injured. The department physician dressed the injuries of some of the men, and others were taken to the emergency hospital. Viewed by 25,000. More than 25,000 watched tho fire from streets roped off by police. Coming as it did in the middle of the afternoon, and on Sunday, when business places were closed, it afforded people an opportunity to observe firemen ut work and get an Insight Into the manner In which a big fire is handled. The first alarm was a still one, summoning members of engine and ladder companies 3, which ure stationed not more than a block away. District Chief Keyes, In whose district the tire was, suw the danger In which surrounding property was and caused a bell alarm to be sounded from box 116 at 3.53, Five minutes later a second alarm was sounded, and a third alarm from the same box followed this two minutes after. These alarms called out the greater part of apparatus In the business section of the city. Both water towers and the horseless engine were there. as were also the big aerial ladders and monster engines. The destroyed building was built less than IO years ago, It was owned by tho J. M. Beebe estate. It had a frontage of 125 feel on Dover st and was 85 feet In depth. It was built of brick. The front and side walls are standing, but the back wall is a mass of debris in a vacant lot. Both side walls ure trucked and appear about ready to fall. The entire five upper floors were burned, and the debris burled the stock of the firms which occupied the lower floor. The street floor is occupied by the Boston fire department, upon which there Is no Insurance, One-half is used as u storage and repair shop, and the other half Is given up to the fire alarm construction department. In the storage rooms three five engines, valued at $3000 each; an aerial ladder, costing between $3000 and $4000; a box truck of about the same value, hose wagons and other apparatus to be used In a case of emergency were stored. It Is impossible to state with any degree of accuracy what damage has been caused to this property. Some of It Is buried under tons of bricks and burned timbers and may be ruined. Fully $20,OOO worth of property was stored thoro. In the fire alarm construction rooms stock valued at about $10,006 was stored. A considerable amount of this will be ruined. The records of this department were destroyed. H. VV. Oherrlngton, the foreman of the construction work, believes that ut least one-half of the stock will be a total loss. The intlre second floor of the building was occupied by the Electric Gaslight company. The finn manufactured all sorts of gas and electrical fixtures and had a stock valued at $lu,000 on hand. The dies, tools, etc, were kept In a safe, The safe Is now in the basement of the building, Mr Fleet, representing the company, says that the extreme heat has probably destroyed the contents of the safe. Nothing was saved belonging to the firm, but everything was well insured. Forty men employed by this firm were thrown out of employment. Highly Inflammable Material. The third floor was occupied by the New England screw company. This Is also a manufacturing company. The stock of the compary, which Is practically a total loss, was valued between $6000 and $10,000. Goodwin Cummings, manufacturers of sofa beds, hud one-half of the fourth floor. The other half was unoccupied. More than $5000 was represented In this firm’s stock. The fifth and sixth floors were used by Bovey & Hardy, novelty manufacturers. Recently the firm had been manufacturing gold picture frames and hud been doing other gold work. About 200 young women were employed. The stock on hand Is said to have been large and valued between $10,000 and Continued on the Second Page. Labor’s contribution to the observance of the first day of May comes this year In the shape of a strike of about 250 journeymen horseshoers for an increase of wages anil the establishment of a minimum scale of $17 per week for drivers and $19 per week for fitters. The members of Journeymen Horseshoers union, 5, expected that more than that number of men would be Involved, but baying discovered that the men had considerable advantage over the employers, in the way of better organization. 42 of the master horseshoers granted the demands Saturday and notified their employes of that fact yesterday. There was considerable rejoicing among the Journeymen when this statement was made at a mass meeting of union aud nonunion horseshoers in Dexter hall yesterday. The number of men who will be thug relieved of the necessity of striking will be reduced about 150, and in the event of a long contest these men will, by a weekly assessment, assist those of their fellow workmen who may be still on strike. That few employers of labor suffer as do the employing horseshoers through a strike was never more manifest than during this contest. One case In particular shows how strikes In this Industry tend to drive tho employing horseshoer ettner out of business or back Into the ranks of the workmen. When the demand for more wages was made upon a certain employing horseshoer by his workmen, he refused to grant the same, and discharged the man who acted as spokesman for his fellow workers. The rest of the men Immediately took off their aprons and quit the shop, and today right opposite where they were formerly employed as workmen, the men will open a cooperative establishment for the purpose of shoeing horses formerly shod by their employer. Among those of the firms granting the demands of the men are two of the officers of the Master Horseshoers association, and as these men have for company several others of their association, it is expected that the strike will be of short duration. By returns made to the mass meeting? yesterday it was shown that about one-flfih of the members of the employers* organization have granted the demands of the men, and this would indicate Continued on the Third 1’nge.
