One of . i ho most disastrous lircs
that hns evev occurred in this city
, broke out r.t o'clock Wcclnos-day
morninp in the southwest upper corner
fit' the I X L building, nt Nos. -11 to 51
East. Third South street. Vnlinnt and
officiont work on tho part of tho firo
neuters is all that prevented a greater
portion of the block from being con
sumed. Tho loss on tho building and
contents is estimated at more than
$100,000, but tho creator part is cov
ered by insurance.
Just how the fire started is some
thing of a mystery, although it id sup
posed to have started cither from a
blow-torch boing used by an electrical
worker in tho aitic, or by defective
electric wiring. At any rate, lire was
communicated to a bunch ot excelsior,
and tho blazo spread quickly. Em
ployees of the company discovered the
blazo almost immediately, and on" of
the number attacked it with hand
grenades and nearly succeeded in put
ting it, out. Ho would have done so, it
7aid, had more greuades been at
hand. However, when the snpnly of
grenades had given out the firo leaped
and spTOad in every direction. In the
meantime an alarm had been sent in to
fire headquarters, and the department
A-An4v4 Airftliftr with tho
fighting strength ot the other depart
ments which nlways answer calls in
the' business district.
, Upon their arrival at tho scene of
the big blaze, which was, by that time,
i pouring through various windows and
eating its wav rapidly downward, no
I time, was lost in getting all tho water
available upon tho tlames, thus at lonsl
confining tho tiro virtually to tho T X
! L building und preventing its spread.
It was one of the most threatening
fires in the business district in many
vear?, but it was handled so intelligent
ly and so euergeticallv that after an
h'our of terrific lire-figluing uothing but
black smoke was belching from the
building, and so well wore tho adjoin
ing buildings protected that a gonoral
conflagration, which looked imminent
at first glance, was entirely averted.
Insurance in Force.
The insurance on tbe building
amounted to $60,000, and the actual
loss to the building is .estimated by
Hj the owners aud the adjusters at not to
exceed $20,000. The insurance on the
stock and fixtures foil below the actual
' firo loss, the total boing but $94,000.
while the loss to the furniture exceeds
j $100,000 alone, the entire stock being
i either destroyed by firo or rendered
virtually worthless by water.
The structure is the most imposing
one on tho north side of Third South
street. Its frontage is 70 feet and
its length 300 feet, and, it has throe
floors and a basement of these dimcn
sions. Tho third or upper lloor was
closely packed with furniture wrapped
in excelsior and paper, and it was all
Hj high-class bedroom and parlor goods.
i Tho close packing also made it difli-
cult for tho firemen to make progress,
and they had to fight tho llames
Through tho windows and from the
It was the most spectacular blaze
seen in Salt Lake for many years, and
spectators filled the street and crowded
tho windows and roofs of the build
Hj 1 ! r.gs on the south side of tho street.
Tho curb was roped off at tho start and
I those who desired access to the store
had to tell their business to the guards
1 at the rope. One of tho handsome fen-
turcs of this building is tho fact that
the frout is beautiful white tile, with
wide and attrnctivo show windows.
Theio were largo quantities of costly
draperies and fine house-hangings that
I were outirely ruined by water.
President "P. A. Horensou of tbe com

Damage by Water.
Duriug the fighting of tho firo tbe
water penned through all tho floors and
saturated not only all the walls, but all
i the furniture and packages. A force
j of fifty men was put to work with
scoops and tubs ou the second floor and
every few niiiiute.-i a tub of water was
dumped to the sidewalk from a socond
story window. Later Ibis force was
brought In I ho first floor, and the wa
tor was swept out of that with brooms.
Tlie basement, however, is Hooded and
it is still full of voluablc stock, most
of which v.'iil suffer by water,
A feature- of tho tire was that, the

Curia thealoi took tiro in a small spot,
but. the firemen fiaw it almost iiumedi
' ately, and it was put out without orup-
ing more than nominal damage. Had
this firo secured u start it would have
resulted seriously for the Luna the
aier und adjoining buildiugs.
The crowds that witnessed the fight
of. the Civ men against the blazo fre
fluently cheered und applauded their ef

HAUSER LAKE DAM
AGAIN WASHED OUT
GRKAT FALLS, Mont., March 17.
The Hauser Lake dam across the Mis
Fouri river, eight miles from Helena,
which broke last May, causing much
damage to farmors and stockmen alone
tho river for miles below, and winch
has been under process of rebuilding
cinco last fall, has again been washed
out, entailing considerable loss to own
ers of property, but doing no damage
along the river, owing to the fact that
littlo water had been backed up bolnnd
lliItdfsmVoported here that tho coffer
dams, sheer dams and the tramework
dam were nil washed out. tho loss in
cluding millions of feet of lumber, as
well as the concroto and other ma
terial used. The construction crew of
300 men which has been employed on
tho new work for about six months has
been laid off and work has been aban
doned until the high water of the early
summer shall have passed.

Government Spending Millions For irrigation
Particular stress Is laid upon th necessity of developing the Irrigation pro
jects in Colorado and tho middle west In the annual report of the secretary of
..n'urlor- Tl1- rnort ctates In part:
The development of dry farm in? and tho extension of Irrigated arena has
nrougnt under cultivation manv thousands of acres of the public domain that
hitherto wasj considered practically worthies. It Is. therefore, necessary to very
carefully consider how the remaining portions of the public damn In Hhonld be
"8ui .J th,nk ,l lon" H'Bt tho remaining lands Bbould be classified In accordance
witii tho cencral plan outlined In tho report of tho commissioner of the general
"Tnder .men a classification tbe government could readily provide means
ror tlie disposition of these lands In such a manner as to afford to the home
maKer the opportunity to ncoulre the necessary kind and quantity of lnnd. Tho
nomcatcad law la not applicable to much of the balnnco of the public domain,
ii ine land If Irrigated a ouch smaller amount than 160 acres may be acquired.
Ki i a J'i farmlng sccf. n, more than lfiO acres may be required. It Is prob
i 2 I" ?r in flect,ons. where dry farming Is feasible, that residence upon the
iv. itself will not be possible because of the absence of portable water. It mnv
tnun no necessary and wis to permit the cultivators of such areas to live In
communities oomo miles distant from the farms and base final proof upon
cultivation and actual rcsldenco In tho neighborhood. In othor words. It Is un
wise to attempt to apply to these areas now under consideration the laws that
were applicable to a totally different kind of landn.
Another great advantage of such a damnification would ho the possibility of
classifying grazing areas in accordance with tho conditions and needs of special
. il"110 establishment of local offices of the geological survey in the west for
.u ' fi portion of the year has proved to be advantageous.
Additional emphasis should be placod upon tho studv of the water resources
or uie country. Water Is essentially a public resource, and its uses from the head
waters down are distinctly public, whether they bo for tho domestic use- of our
great cities, or development of power, for irrigation, or. finally, for navigation.
Furthermore, the questions arising from this great use of water are necessarily
not confined to single states.
