Burrs,Sept. 29.^At 10 minute* past 12^o'clock Arc was diaooveretl in the new^brick building known as the Bowes block,^at the corner of Utah and Granite streets.^When first discovered the flames hod^burst the lower rear windows at the south^^west corner of the building- A Standakd^reporter was the first to discover tile^fire. Instantly an alarm was^given, whistles were Hounded and^bells were ringing. The city Are depart^^ment and the Butte fire brigade respond^^ed with remarkable promptness, but in an^incredibly abort time the whole building^was wrapped in flames. In lesa than Ave^minutes after the Are waa first discovered^the splendid live-story building was^wrecked and the walls fell in.^The Are had gained such headway^and the wind waa blowing such a^gale at the time that the Aremen, although^they worked heroically, were unable to^prevent the Are from spreading, ami in a^few moments the flames had licked up half^a doaen frame buildings on Granite^street and had caught in the gable of the^fine brick store on the corner of Granite^and Main . This building was occupied^by the D. J. Hennessy Mercantile com^^pany and A. J. Dusseau, photographer.
Thestrong, thick Are walls and iron^sheeted windows held the flames in^check only a few moments. The^wind carried the flames from the burn^^ing buildings in the rear through^every crack und crevice and soon the^Humes burst out through the roof. Two^powerful streams from the flre eom|tany^were unavailing and by 12:25 o'clock Hen-^uessy's dry goods stc^re, one of the largest^and best stocked in the state, was re^^duced to ashes with its 9125,000 stock of^goods. Adjoining Heunessy's store on^Main street to the south was the^First national bank. This was^burned next. Spreading still south^down the front of Main street on the west^side, the Are destroyed three brick build^^ings adjoining the First national bank.^The first was owned by the Centennial^Brewing company, and occupied by^Schmidt A Gamer, saloon kcciM-rs. Next^came the brick store owned by H. Jonas,^and oeeupietl by Kahuweiller's bazar.^The well known dry goods and gents'^furnishing house ^311,^ a branch of the^mammoth Bonner outfit, and managed^by Mr. t'horles Palmer, was the next^to fall a prey to the flames.^The Are was checked here from extend^^ing farther to the south on Main street,^though a number of stores a block further^down were damaged more or less by Are,^smoke and water. Babcoek Bros., the^hatters, removed all their goods and the^rear of their store was damaged, a num^^ber of rooms occupied by clerks and^others in the second story Is-ing burned^away completely.
Meantime,the fl 'c, aided by the high^wind which wus blowing, was earrietl into^other |^urts of the town. The Bernard^block, a line brick structure, which stood^nearly opismitc the place where the fire^origiuut^*d on Granite street, was con^^sumed. In this block of buildings sev^^eral business firms were located, amongst^them lacing Cushiug's drug store. Dr.^W. M. Schulti, office und residence:^Dr. Reod's tlentistry office, Mrs. D^-cr-^ing. millinery; Samuel Perry, tailoring^establishment; the offices of the Butte^and Boston Mining Co.; S. V. Kciii|^cr *^Co.'s real estute office; Patten's real es^^tate office; Curter A Hatha way's collect-^ing and general agency olAee; Dr. Gilles^^pie's office and residence, and a iuiiiiImt^of other offices. West of the Bernard^block stood a brick store'owncd by Mrs.^Bishop. This burned next, with all its^contents. Dr. Howard's office and^residence wus also in this block antl |were^completely destroyed. West of this wus^A. W. Bernard's residence and office and^Curtis A Major's real estute office. These^were gutted and the furniture completely^destroyed. A small confectionery store^oeeupietl by Mrs. Featherley, was injured^to the extent of $100. At this |ioint on the^north side of Granite street the Are was^checked though some small houses in^the rear of the Bernard block were de^^stroyed. Mrs. Scott owned a small frame^house on the corner of Utah and Granite^streets just opposite the Bowes block.^This was burned up. It was occupied by-^Mr. Bowes as an office. These buildings^being mostly of wood were burned rapidly.
Thegreatest struggle of the day was^made by the Aremen when the Bonner^building on the corner of Granite^and Main caught Are. This build^^ing is almost Are proof Is-iug^protected by huge iron window shutters.^Notwithstanding this the flames worked^into the crevices and soon the whole^southwest corner of the building wus utire.^Flames were issuing from a tiutulierof^places in the roof and all the windows in^the rear of the store. Great sheets of flre^and clouds of smoke were swept by the
windfrom the burning buildings an^the street. It looked as if it would he im^^possible to save the Bonner building, hut^the three Are companies, aided by a few^citiaens, fearless of smoke. Are and fall^^ing walls, worked like heroes and suc^^ceeded in accomplishing what looked al^^most like a miracle. After half an^hour of as hard and dangerous^work as ever was done by Are^^men, the flames were quenched and Un^^building saved from complete destruction,^though it did not escape without serious^damage. The windows and casings were^burned away and in many places large^holes were burned through the roof. The^large plate glass window on Granite street^wus splintered by the heat antl some of^tlie flooring on the second story was^burned.
Thedamage to stock in the Bonner^building will he enormous. The base^^ment of the building was literally packed^with I^ales and boxes of inflammable and^IM-rishuhle goods. Some of these bad^caught flre and partly burned away before^the water reached them. The whole place^was soaked with water. On the main^floor most damage had been done by smoke^and water. In the tailoring department^a large stock of goods was ruined by Are.^A hole was burned through the roof and^the office furniture was burned to a cin^^der. In the millinery and carpet depart^^ments much damage waa done, t'urpets^were partly burned and water trickled^from everything. The rear end of the^buildings occupied by Calkins' bookstore,^Grix's bookstore, James H. Lynch's^saloon and other buildings in that blts-k^north of Bonner's wore frequently on^flre, but by the heroic work of the Are^^men the destruction ended when a few^cottages in the rear were destroyed.^When tin- Are was checked at Bonner's^the other buildings were saved, and by 3^o'clock the Are was under control.

Bi'ttk,Sept. 29.^Perhaps the most^thrilling incident of to-day's flre occurred^at 5:45 o'clock this afternoon. The flames^hud died flown and the weary firemen^were playing on the ruins. Among the^debris, where a few hours before stood^Heunessy's big store, a volunteer firemen^named William Chapman was directing a^stream at the smouldering mass. For^three hours he had been holding the liol-^sle. Behind him was another firemen^named Tucker. Suddenly the west wull^of the building was seen to sway. A mo-^ment later there was a deafening crash^and then a stifliiug cloud of dust. From^the darkness emerged the form of Tucker,^his white fireman's coat blackened with^dirt. He had been struck on the head^and back with falling bricks, but he cried^out, ^Save my |K^rtner.^ A dozen men^sprung into the smoking mass and soon^pulled out the apparently lifeless^form of Chapman. His head wus^bruised and hhssly and he gave^no sign of life. He was removed in n buck^to the McDermott House. His wife was^summoned from South Butte and was^soon at his side. His life is despaired of.^He is the father of eight children and is^IKtor. He worked in the Montana Union^freight yard.
Meanwhilethe southwest corner of the^Bowes building still projected upward as^far us the fourth story, like a sentinel^butte, all the other walls being in a heap^on the ground. The firemen attached^ro|M^s and tried to pull it down. Twice^the rope gave wuy. But the third time the^wull tottered and fell, crashing into the^rear of the wholesale liquor store of H. L.^Frank, at the corner of West Brood way^antl I*tali street. The roof of the building^wus crushed and throe rooms on the top^Moor were demolished. The building is^owned by James Murray.
To-nightthe citizens of Butte are gath^^ered on every street corner discussing the^fire. Kvcrylssly is loud in pruise of the^firemen, both the paid anil the volunteer^men.
Thevolunteer firemen of the Alice mine^came over from Wulkerville carrying their^hose on their backs. They ilid gallant^service. One citizen to-uight said, ^At 1^o'clock to-day I wouldn't have given .'.^cents for the whole of Butte.^ The fire^^men did. indeed, make a wonderful light.^Their victory was os|^ct-iully notable in^saving the Bonner Mercantile comikuny^from c omplete ruin. The Aremen stood^almost in the midst of the flames and^poured ill the stream, while tin- hose was^burning behind them. To mention 111^ -^firemen und the citizens who Is-camc^heroes to-day would Is- to mention u^fourth of the citizens.
Ttis not generally believed to-night that^the origin of tin- flre wus incendiary. Sev^^eral theories have been advanced, the^most plausible of which is that three^plumls-rs were at work in Bowes' new^hotel, that the gasoline engine with which^they were working exploded anil caused^the tin-. This theory is considered es|soc^^ially plausible from the rapidity with^which the entire structure was in^flames. Dr- W. M. Scbultz, who first^sounded the alarm, says it was not five^minutes Is-fore the whole building was^atluuie. Tne Missouri river could not^have quenched the flre then. But further^investigation has thrown doubts on this^theory also. One of the phimlsrs says^they wen- working on the main floor und^tin- flre started in the Itusciiieut. Further^^more, he, himself, earrietl the gasoline en^^gine, und can produce it to show that it^dill not cause the lire.
