For a long time it looked to the crowd which had gatl\er6d from ev ery cornor of the city as if the blazo would be confined to the rear ot the basement under Clarke and Co.'s store, and while dense clouds of sm'oke were pouring from the windows, it did.not look to the casual observer au If any serious damage wou\d bo done, but the basement was a hell of fire during tlie whole time until 8,40 when the blaze nto its way intcthe rear addition ot Clarke's, ^here the dress making departmeut,^ was established.

N. W. Rowoll. The ex-minister asserted tlml Mr. Rowell had commercialized Christianity and that he had, previous to his entry into the union government, entered into a conspiracy to supplant Sir Wilfrid Lanrier as Liberal leader. Mr, Munihy accused the government of having raised the riicial and religious cry in order to win the election. He asserted that Mr. Rowell had sent his agent to London to offer a prominent Liberal of that city, as a bribe to induce him to desert the Lfb-6ral candidate, the chairmanship of tho war purchasing commission, that he had deputed G, G. S. Lindsay ot Toronto, to interview Liberals to see if ilioy would stand for the appointment of a member of the prdsont government to tho Ontario supreme court bench and that he had induced Robert Mulholland to make way for himself as candidate in Durham by offering him a seat iu the senate. Mr;, Rowell was not In att&ndani^e in the house when Mr. Myrphy spoke.
