M.; raging in this city. The scene of the fire in Quoeb Victoria and Thames streets, near Black Fryar's bridge. Numerous warehouses ure blazing, and London seem a destined to suffer one of the most destructive fires in its history of recent years. Fourteen fire engines were Hoon upon the spot, and the firemen did their utmost, but with little success, to check the coarse of the flames. A high wind was blowing, which mater- ially added to the fury of the flames, while hindering the firemen in their effortH to save property. Terrible sheets of flames and clout's of hot smoke were frequently whirled dangerously near them. 'T'he large wholesale fur manufactory of Revillon Freeres, 127 to 141 Queen Victoria street, was doomed shortly after the fire had gained strength and headway. Following this were a large copper warehouse, a number of fancy dry goods stores and the Gulcher Electric Light iind Power Company building, which were also a complete prey to the flames. The flames spread rapidly on all sides, as if there were no fire- men or fire engines present. Immense crowds of people watched on the bridges over the Thames and in the streets running down to the river, where a good view of the con- flagration could bs had. Many ex- pressed the hope that this disaster would at least bring about a reform in the London fire b.igade. As the fire progressed it spread to the headquarters of the Salvation Army. The Salvationists work- ing like beavers in their efforts to place the records and other property of the Army in a place of safety. At 4 P. M. the fire was rapidly spread- ing in all directio is. All buildings from the corner of Bennett's Hill to No. 135 Queen Victoria street are either blazing fiercely or else are smouldering ruins. The fire originated in the building of C. Davidson A Sons, paper manu- facturers and bag makers at 119 Queen Victoria et-eet. This building is a large structure and was completsly gutted, as was also that of Adolph Frankan Co., manufacturers of pipes and importers of tobacco. The old St. Bennett Church on upper Thames street, a famous Welcn church, a'so caught fire. At P. M., what would be teamed in New York four large blocks of buildings were in flilacs and were burning steadily. At 5 o'clock this ufterrioon St. Ben- nett's Church was complete'y de- stroyed. The firemen managed to save the headquarters of the Salvation Army, aed was then announced tl-at the fire was under control. It is esti- mated that will cover the losses.
