Prominent Bostonians .Enthusiastically Send Him April Hall was packed to-night at a mass-meeting of prominent citizens regardless of race to express sympathy for Mr. Gladstone und Mr. Parnell in their efforts to secure home rule for Ireland. When John Boyle the Irish editor aud author mounted the historic platform aud called the vast assemblage to order the pent up enthusiasm wf the assembly broke forth in prolonged cheers. Mr. O'Reilly made a brief and pithy avoiding criticism of Gladstone's lauding the Premier's purity of motive aud earnestness of intention and wishing God-speed to the efforts making to strike off the shackles that have so long bound his countrymen. He closed by introducing Mayor Hugh O'Brien as the presiding officer. Oa the appearance of the latter the multitude again nearly lifted the roof with applause. Similar greeting was ten- dered every speaker of the evening. Mayor after a few suc- cessively introduced Collector ex-Mayor thejprom- inent Rev. A. A. who spoke of himself as Scotch Hoa. John ex-United States Senator from Father of and John E. tbe latter of whom made the speech of the evening and was repeatedly interrupted by long con- tinued applause The speeches were almost entirely of a congratulatory nature. It was quite generally admitted that the proposed home rule scheme was not the ideal not what Ireland ought to but the feeling breathed through all that Gladstone and Pavnell conlrl be trusted to formulate as radical and just a as could possibly be enacted. Tele- prams of congratulation were sent to Mr. Gladstone aod Mr. Parnell. WORK OF THK FLAMES. A SlMOjOOO at Xarrow Escapes.

City Solicitor AlcCalmonfc was examined ns to certain equity proceedings and certi- fied copies were filed. Lorah Goodrich testified to the fact that horsemen sometimes registered assumed names when they wentolfon a horse deal. He had known a lawyer aud a minister to thus register. .Tames Broder and B. Wil- moth testified to seeing the Bun- kirk hotel pass Kelly's office from three to seven times on the day he was called upon to identify the defendant iu court a.s he who signed as W. M. Keeler. It will be remembered that Mr. Kelly sub- sequently admitted that fae so registered. Mr. Hequembourg was recalled by Mr. Smiley and questioned at length concern- ing how the Bradford Gaslight nnd Heat- ing Company regulated the gas pressure and whether it wns responsible for recent fires. He made the following I want to say here iu explanation of this gss pressure business that an allusion was mado to the oflice of Mr. Kennedy. Now our gas as used in Bradford has all been regulated to the greatest extent possible for us to regulate and in order to supply the increaaingdemauds for gas people have been allowed to tap some of the high pressure lines running to those different gas holders that regulated the knowing the uncer- tainty und tho danger connected with and under the best regulation it was possi- ble to use. it may he possible there is a high pressure line running up before Mr. Kennedy's office aud located there ou that Hue. It may be possible that they have got a connection with tbe high pres- sure Hue that supplies that vicinity. It goes by and feeds that gaa holder. There are several cases of that kind ia the- city. The case that Mr. Smiley called my atten- tion to iii regard to tho school house up here that was recently high pres- sures gH3 was carried to tbafc school and at tbe time of the fire was being sup- plied to both of the old school and from that pipe to tlie new pchool through a regulating device For regulating the pressure after it got to the school which was located in the nudnt Llie ika firo rvsi.i-nlatinw dovinn wns m order uim supplylUfiTtuegas nuder an even aud uaiform pressure. There are other places iu boilers more espec- that were supplied with high pres- sure some with regulators aud some without. We supply IBovaird Ktivfaug L with unregulated gas. They understand the dangers connected with it and have been inl'ormod and take their own risk. We supply the OU Kxchiinge boiler. Tuey have n regulating device of their own upon their boiler which rogulatrs the supply of gas to that boiler and tho pressure cannot increase. The .Exchange ia run in the same way and several more inaLauces of that kind. But HO far as we know with the exception of large consumers we have no unregulated pressure iu town. The pres- sure that we cfistrihuto to our customers however. We have some people upou the lino that us a regular pressure don't vary thirty-six pounds io tbo square inch. We have tho hulk of our high pres- sure consumers upon a regular pressure of three and the greatest number of our consumers are upou n regular pressure of six and hall ounces water pressure. Mr. auy fire taken place in this city to your knowledge hy reason of any failure on the part of your company to'provide the best possible regulator for that I ever heard of. allusion was made by counsel to ovidenco given by yourself in relation to certain sniti once pending against sev- eral parlies iu this and intima- tion made that you bad .sworn that these suits were still Objected the record shows. hail no opportunity to look my testimony since 1 gave it. if I gave auy such testimony it was certainly under a misunderstanding ou my part. I meant to say that we had had litigation with all these private line people and Hint wns continued for pome but 1 don't wish to be understood that tho litigation was still pending. Mr. Ifow long have you been supplying gas on the other side regulated by a gasometer at Kennedy's suppose about eight years. tmill that gasometer over there in regulated gas heiore we bnVt the gasometer there. Never had any high pressure gas iu the Fourth ward that I know of at all until we built the gasome- ter there. I Ibiuk it was in 1884. It was all supplied from what we call car regular regnlaled from Chantau- qaa street up to that- time. The pressure never exceeded si inches water presanre. notwithstanding the fact that these persons took at their own risk and with a full knowledge of their tbe high pressure goi without may that not be as dangerous to their neighbors as if they didn't know don't calculate to have those cases occur if we can prevent it. There is no reason why Mr. Kennedy's if it is should be on the high pressure line. stated tbat in a number of cases you had put parties on high pres- sure lines and they had taken their own risk't was for the purpose of supplying them with the quantity of gas that they they having the necessary watch- men or observation of we considered it safe. The evidence waa closed. The committee agreed to give the coun- sel for the defendant half an hour in which to argue the case to them and fifteen minutes to any other citizen.
