The threatened strike of the linemen employed by the various electric light and telephone companies is on, not single company having granted the demands of Eleetrioal workers Union 104 for a nine-hour day and $3 a (lay pay. It is expected that 372 men will be involved, employes of the following companies; New England telephone and telegraph, employing 150 men; Boston cie vated railway, 120 men; Boston electric light company, 22 men; Brookline electric light company, 16 men; Suburban gas and electric light company, IO men; Quincy electric light company, 14 men; Cambridge electric light company, IO men; Malden electric light company, ll men; Somerville electric light company 9 men.    * The strike really began yesterday at Beachmont. where six of the linemen, employed by the Suburban gas and electric light company, quit work after having been notified that their demands would not be granted. These tnen did not wait for orders from the union to strike. They notified the management of the company that they could not work for their present schedule, and that unless the new schedule was granted they would cease work. After some further discussion six of the men refused to go on, and orders were sent out to hire new men. It is believed by the company that the places of the strikers will be filled this morning. The men employed on the emergency wagons of the Boston elevated will remain at work until ll a rn today, when, if an amicable understanding Is not reached, they will stop work. At 7 this morning it is confidently stated that all linemen will be out. The meeting of electrical workers’ union 104 last night was the longest and liveliest ever held. It was in continuous session until 2:30 this morning and the hall was packed all the time. The debates were in most cases calm, but tho speakers were determined in their insistence on a strike because of the failure of the companies to recognize the union, to grant any concessions to the men or to arbitrate the dispute before any impartial tribunal.

Theestimate-of houses to the block is IO, hence 1300 of them went up in smoke. Many of the finest public and private buildings were destroyed, including hotels, theatre, churches aud residences. The casualties cannot be accurately estimated tonight. That there were several seems to be well authenticated. Among them was that of the fire chief who sustained a bad fall. The mayor ordered all-of the saloons closed and has Impressed; help to clear the wreck-age. Mayor Bowden at I o’clock this morning says the property loss will exceed $15,(KXI,OOO, From 10,000 to 15,000 people are homeless. The width of the desolated area is 13 Dlooks.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla, May 3—Jacksonville experienced today the most disastrous fire in its existence. The buildings on the entire length of Beaver st, from Davis st to the creek on Liberty st, have been totally destroyed. This is 14 solid blocks of residences. From the same distance Ashley and Church sts have both been completely blotted • out. When the fire reached Bridge st in its eastward course it enveloped in flames three blocks—Duval, Monroe and th© north side of Adams, burning un that entire section of the city and ruining 14 blocks to the Duval-st bridge. The conflagration has burned over, as far as is definitely known, a distance 2Ms miles long by a half-mile wide. At Julia st the fire was a roaring furnace, without any prospect of being put under control. The local military companies were called out to keep back tho crowds.

SUMMARY OF THE DAY’S EVENTS. The Court sustained its previous ruling, excluding from the evidence in chief of the commonwealth the testimony of Charles R. Eastman before the grand jury. Will the defense put the defendant on the witness stand at this trial? The commonwealth finished That Eastman accidentally discharged the old rlm-flre revolver. That Eastman “believed” that he had accidentally shot Grogan with the ancient weapon. That Grogan, not wounded, but frightened beyond all reason by the accidental discharge commonwealth its introduction of direct evi- of the old rim-fire revolver, thereupon made a sudden attack with his own pearl-handled revolver upon Eastmah. That Eastman accidentally shot Grogan in the contention It would certainly seem that the very large increase already so noticeable in our spring commands must argue heavily in favor of our enlarged, superseded series.
