Once again, the staitllng blast of the
fire whistle In the early hours of the
morning, the clang of the fire engine
bells In the quiet city street nnd once
again, the hit Id glare In the sky that
betokens the loss of thousands In mon
ey and the destruction of business In
terests. This time, the awful flaircn
were not accompanied' by the crack,
crack of ammunition nnd the lull ex
plosion of cans of oil and powder as In
the Hall fire of a little over a fortnight
ago but by the agonlred nnd almost
human shrieks of horses about seven
ty In number encompassed about
by four walls of nngry fire so securely
as to render impossible all aid on tho
part of those who were only too will
ing to km) a helping hand. In one
short hour, starting from about 1:45
o'clock a. 111., tho buildings of tho
Stock Yards Co. on South and King
streets were burned to the ground and
all that remains to tell the story this
morning Is a smouldering pile of ashes
and a few bidly charred walls stand
ing as witnesses of the awful occur
When Fire Started.
As has already been stated, the lire
itarted at about 1: 13 o'clock. At least,
this Is the time that the alarm was
turned In fioin the stables. There Is
no doubt wlintecr that the flames had
been spreading for somo little time be
foic a led tongue shot out of one of the
windows of the upper story.
On the premises of the Stock Yards
Co. at the time were two or three Chi
ncec and Joe Sylvn, the foreman and
nlgiit watchman as well as the watch
man doing duty In the unaccepted ad
dition to the stables on King Btreet.
One of the Chinese was tho first to dis
cover the fire and he rushed Into tho
olllce to tell Sylvn.
To the Hchcuc.
The watchman saw plainly that the
stables were doomed. Already, tho loft
In which the Are undoubtedly started,
was literally bursting with the flames.
Quickly tinning In the alarm, Syhu
summoned ever one In sight to his
help and rushed Into the stables to
ave the alieady rearing and plunging
Uy this time, the burning grain had
begun to fall to the stables below,
igniting the Inflammable matcilal that
was to oe found there. Sjlvn and his
men rushed about getting the horses
out of their Btalls until they were driv
en back by the llamcs that had by this
time spread to all parts of the build
ing. As the flames Increased, the excite
ment of the horses hecamo greater,
rendering the woik of the rescuers
moiu dlfllctilt nnd dangerous ns each
second passed by. Finally tho men
on Id not stnnd the suffocating heat
any longer and they were foiced to re
heat to the open all,
In the meantime, the carriages near
the door. Including hacks, delivery wa
gons, phaetons, buggies and suireys,
some ten or a dozen In number, were
taken to places of safety on King
A Nervy Patrolman.
Just as the flames were beginning to
scotch the poor hoises It had been
impossible to get out, a lone mounted
patiolniau finm the Knkanko heat,
George Kaeo by nnme, camo galloping
up South sticet. Ho tut loose the rope'
that seemed the horse attached to
Love's bakeiy wagon, standlug near
the entiance and set the animal adrift.
The pitiful ciles of tho horses tim
er him to action. Jumping from his
hoi 60 lie ran aiou'nd the back way
and attempted to get Into the stablFs
pioper but this was Impossible on ac
count of the lleutness of tho heat.
Just at that moment, he was joined
by Sjlva and these two men gave their
I attention to the horses in the auxiliary
stables at the tear which were already
' being licked by the flames.
I The boards at the bark pnit of the
(list stable weie kicked out and the
horses driven out Into an adjoining
marsh whence they gained the stieets
and wandered to ailoua parts of the
city. It was not so easy w Ith the sec
ond stable. On account of Its veiy na
ture, the two rescuers wcro forced to
lead the horses one by one, directly un
der the flames to the small corrals near
by. From this place, they gained tho
A Narrow Encnpe.
Just after fieplng what horses they
could In the main stables, Bylvn sud
denly remembered that his wife and
chlldicn and 11 sister-in-law, were
vslcep In one of the cottages nt the
pack. Rushing wildly to the place, hu
arilved just In time to savo his people
The kitchen was on flio and tho smoke
was beginning to get in Its work ot
suffocation on the loved ones.
Sylva next awakened tlie people In
the two udjoluing houses by throwing
stones thtoiigh tho window. He was

time, all these outet buildings weie en

no traces have been left behind on account of the mmplete destruc

The flip depaitment vvim quick to re

In less than (lvo minutes from t'e tlma

In such 11 way as to protect buildings

perfect. The W. W. Wright carriage
shops and the Langdon, which are in
cluded In one building, the Conk resi
dence, the Hiistnce stable .-lid other
smaller residence and huslncsj places
were In constant danger ot being Ignit
ed by the sparks.
The firemen watched for cciy Indi

the Stock Yards property. The Trian

was perhaps the most ctogoly watched
as this was the Lev to (he situation

building to Knwalahao Semlnnrj,
were not allowed to cncioarh.
High Sheriff Ilrovvu and his deputy,
Mr. Chllllngwoith, were among the
llrst on the Bcene. Thei patrolmen on
the various beats were called In and
sent to the fire as were the special nfll

ot the (ire, Deputy Sheriff Chilling

found at least twenty-fit p people there

iug what they might do, he had them
put out by his men.

It was fully twenty minute's utter the

Tile A10 made very short work of it.
In less than two hours after the alarm
had been turned In, there was nothing
hut a smouldering mass of ruins to tell
whero the Stock Yards stables had
stood, The sight, was a gruesome one.
Plainly visible In the ruins of the sta

horses that only yesterday, were pranc

lying In long rows where the stables
In which they were tied had stood II

Origin of Fire.
Of course, the origin of the Arc is
shrouded in mystciy. It may have

The succession of two big Ares, with
the third one yet to come according to
the superstitious, Superintendent
Drown of the water works Is not cer
tain but that he will bo compelled to
Inaugurate radical changes In the dlrcc
tlon of his department.
The fire which consumed the Hall
building required several million gal
lons of water and taxed the capacity
of the lower icservolrs nnd the pump
ing station on llerctnula street. Tin
Stock Yards Ale last night was a repe
tUlon of the experience. The pump
weie run six hours over time and thrctt
tons of extra coal were consumed.
Mr. Drown said this morning "Wu
are liable to come to the end of our
string some of these dn)s. Ihe ap
propriations we secured for running
expenses did not contemplate such a
spell ot dry weather as this and as
many Hres as seem now to be on the
schedule. The main dlfllculty Is that
the department expected more finan
cial nld under the loan bill which fall
ing left the estimates In the Current
Hxpcnse hill too small."
The fact se'cms to be that the pres
ent supply of water is made still
smaller because people use vastly morn
In sprinkling lawns and roads than
In wetter seasons. Mr, Drown has or
dered that the rule that Irrigation shall
be confined to the hours ot from U to
S a. 111, nnd I to C p. m. shall be more
strictly enforced than ever. A
