The officials speak hope- fully, but continue preparations -------------------------o------------------------- i Father of the Force Special to The Journal] I SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 of Detectives' Ben Bowen, who has been on the police force since 1861, i died tonight When Box 5 sounded its alarm last night half the population of the city rushed pellmell to the scene of the fire. It was an industrious little blaze and for ten minutes it hung on to -existence with tooth and toe nail. The fire was in a very small building at the rear of a tumble down row of shanties disgracing the principal thoroughfare in the city To be more accurate it -was behind the People's restaurant. Lots of people wanted to see the hovels burn up and shouted encouragingly to the blaze, which was doing the best it could As usual, jthe hose wagon arrived on the scene before the ponderous steamer and Driver Acree ran to the box. Hose was stretched down Second street and up the alley to the fire. As the steamer reached the corner of Virginia street and Commercial Row it was baited and attachment was made to the plug. There was a delay of some length until the hose wagon could return from where it had strung hose and lay another line. Meanwhile the fire had assumed such pioportions that it required two whole buckets of water to put it out. By this" time the department was in action and the embers were cooled off. By the way, the hydrant pressure was indicated on the steamer dlials as fifteen pounds, while the engine ran it up to 160 pounds. Read the Signs Special to The Journal] GLASGOW, Oct. addressed six thousand enthusiastic people on the tariff question tonight. He declares the signs point toward the decline of the empire unless tariff policj is changed and to make a strong plea for protection. AS an American Farmer Special to The Journal] A'ltANTA, Ga., Oct. Thomas Lip ton has bought one thousand acres of land near here. He proposes to fruit and vegetables for the Eng- lish market CARTER AND WALCOTT They Will Meet in the Fistic Arena This Evening Special to The Journal] BOSTON, Mass, Oct. a series of hitches and delays the pros- pects seem bright for a meeting here tonight between Joe Walcott and Kid Carter. The two are down for a fif- teen round mill, under the auspices of the Criterion Athletic club. It will be the first time in a long while that Walcott has gone against a first-class fighter and the result is awaited with much interest. Carter wiill have a big advantage in weight, but the admirers of the colored boy are confident that the latter's well known skill and hard- hitting powers will more than offset this advantage.

The team work is de- veloped up to -a nicety now and will be the feature of the Nevada work next Saturday instead of the individ- ual plays that characterized the game with the Alumni.

BUFFALO, Oct. Post-j NEW YORK, Oct. master General Blssell died tonight, been completed by the Old Guard of Wreckage from Beowawe The wrecked cars fiom the Beowawe disaster passed west through Reno last evening One of the passenger coaches so completely demolished that sections of it were loaded on flat cars. Ihe other damaged cars went through on their own trucks, but it was evidenced that they suffered con- siderably In the smashup. A representative of The' Journal visited East Reno yesterday and, as all who run out there are, was greatly impressed with the activities dis- played. The round house is now assuming proportions that give the spectator more idea of its gigantic size than could have been gathered from the foundation before work began upon the superstructure. To say that it is over a quarter of a mile around the walls is not to give the adequate idea that a glimpse of the walls really conveys. Engineer Barclay is making splendid progress with the work there despite the great difficulty he had in securing enough men. The laborers and skilled aitisans are constructing round house that has both architectural beauty and the permanency of ages. "Work upon the shops has not yet begun and little will be done on them before spring. The shops will be GOO feet long and 150 feet wide There will be about five of these__ buildings in addition to smaller structures. From what can be learned, and the Southern Pacific company has never been famed, as a gossip, the shops will be largely constructive as well as for repair work and will employ probably 1500 men. All the way out Fourth street and its continuation to the site of the shops building activities cue displayed on evpry hand. Whdle the structures for business and residence purposes on the new town tracts are very flimsy and apparently temporary, they will doubtless be succeeded by better build- ings. A number of handsome and comfoit- able homes are being built close to the city limits at the cast end. Now that it is very nearly a settled fact that there will be an electric street car line lunning through the suburbs by next summer, there will doubtless be a large number of builddng con- .trncts let within the next few days for dwellings along the car line. This in .a very few months, a year at least will result in a double row of resi- dences between thr> city and its pros- pective suburb CHILD BELIEVE! TO HAVE BEEN Little Son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Lacarte Traced to English Mill Ditch and Search for Body Be- gun, Which Is Not Yet Found There is every evidence that a little- child fell into the English Mill ditch in this city yesterday afternoon and! was drowned. The child's name was Joseph La- carte, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. Lacarte of Winter street. It was five years of age'. At 4 o'clock he was missed by hls> mother and inquiry was made among- the neighbors without any knowledge- being gained of thp whereabouts of the missing one An hour or two passed and the po- liice were notified and parties of neigh- bors set out to search for the boy. What are believed to be his foot- prints were traced to the bank of the English Mill ditch. This is a body of watoi a couple of feet deep and flows in a strong current. It has already claimed several victims. Hany Gill closed down the head- gate and with a party of men set out to search the ditch. It was followed from the probable scene of the drown- ing to Fourth .stippt, but 110 trace of the child could be obtained. The party then went down to thfr English miill and began to search the- stream. At 1 o'clock no further news could be obtained. There is a waste flume running to UIP river and there- is a possibility that the body was car- ried through it, in which it may not be found for some time.
