HRBUG FLOURISHES N NATION'S Twenty-five Percent of All The Blazes in New York of In cendiary Origin, NEW YORK, Dec 27. The big gest and most extensive campaign that has ever been undertaken for such a purpose in this country is to be launched by the New York Fire Department and others who are in terested to stop the ravages of the "firebug" which, it is now brought to light, have reached enormous di mensions in the metropolis. Fire Commissioner Johnson estimates that one fire in every four, or twenty-five per cent of all the blazes that break out in Greater New York, are of incendiary origin. Other officials who are in a posit ion to know say that his estimate is too small. In one block of the city there have been fifty-eight fires in the last two years and a half; in an other block not far away there have been seventy-seven in the same per iod, and in a block which adjoins the last mentioned there have been eighty-five. These are part of the -well defined "firebug zone" which cross...

According to statements made by several eye witnesses, the shooting of a Mexican named Rcyos Gon zales by J. H. Minor, at P. & E. railroad junction on Chirstmas night was. a justifiable act, and had not Minor acted with decision and promptness it is the belief of many at that place there was a strong probability of the Mexican inflicting serious injury on others -at that time. Leading up to the action of Minor, it is said the Mexican had threaten ed to kill several women at the sec tion house, and while in an intoxi cated condition drew a large knife with an eight inch blade, and at tempted to carry out his cowardly purpose.

The appointment of Mr. Cobb comes as the result of a suggestion conveyed to the gov ernor in a communication from the board of trade following a meeting with Hon. E. B.
