THE MANAGER'S STATEMENT. Our reporter who waited on Mr. Hambly, the manager of the Coffee Palace, found that gestleman in a state of great mental exhaustion. He said he had no idea as to the origin of the fire, and he thought it would be as well to leave en quiries on that point until the Inquest to be held this afternoon. There are GO bed rooms, in the Coffee Palace, and last night there were 20 boarders. The rule cf the establishment Is to close at half-past 11 o'clock, and this rule was strictly observed last nigfct. Mr. Hambly &tites fiat when he received the alarm of fire he had to work his way beck from the front sitting room, and eventually landed on the back of McLean Bros , Rigs, & Co. 's premises. It was expected that Mr Hambly woald Lave been able to throw some light on the unfortunate death of Mr. Taplin, but, as he himself confesses, he was too excited to really notice what was going on.

POLICE-CONSTABLE SWEENSY. states :— ' At 10 minutes to 3 o'clock I came down my beat in Hindley- street, while Constable Delaney, who is stationed on the other side, was walking ap hia beat. Sergeant Macnamara visited us there, and we passed the Coffee Palace without there being the slightest indica tion of a fire. I went up my beat as fa? as King William-street, and then turned back. Lance-Corporal Lynch, who was in charge of the theatre, was strolling down, ai-d we stopped to have a talk. I heard a noise of hammering and wondered what it was. Eventually we came to the conclusion that it was some of Conrad's men getting ready to kill some sheep. We walked up the street again, when I saw a reflection through the front windows of the Coffee Palace. Lynch ran off to the fire alarm, while I blew my whistle as hard as I knew how and endeavored to arouse the inmates of the palace. I tried to forca in one of the front doors, but was un able to do so, and when I went back to the lane I obs...

At the outset riders did not seem to folly realise wbat was expected. Then it dawned upon them, and in a burst of enthusiasm numbers set about complying with the cond- tions.impoEed with all celerity. Sad to say, however, some misguided individuals in a fever of excitement to obey the instructions to the letter, procured bells of somewhat large size, and capable of emitting a great volume of sound. In order to conform with the by-Jaw and keep the tintinafau lators continuously ringing, vibrating springs ...
