A HEAP OF ASHES
Splendid Business Blocks in
Butte Swept by Flames.
LONG LIST OF LOSSES
lu ame @rIh Pewgmpeu
Burr SWept. 4-At 10 minuaes pasat
o'cloek fae was discovered in the new
brick buildingm known as the Bowe block,
at the corner of Utah and Granite streets.
When ALsa diseovered the Lanes had
buwt the lower rear windows at the south
west oearer of the building. A STANDARD
repoart was the Ains to discover the
ire. Instantly an alarm was
gives, whistles were sounded and
bell were ringing. The iy Ae depart
nent and the Butte fre brigade respond
ed with remarkable promptness, but n as
incraedibly st tmue the whole d bulding
was wrapped Ln Larme. In ls. than Aire
miautractr the lue was rust dlmecured
the splendid Afveseuvr building was
wrecked and the walls tll ina.
The fre had gained such headway
and the wind was blowing much a
gale at the tlme that the fremen, although
t worked heroicallyr were unable to
prevent the Lre from spreading, and in a
few moaent. the eames bad lleked hp half
a doses traume buildlngs on Granite
steet and had caught in the gable of the
lne brick store on the corner i Granite
and Main . This building was occupied
by the D. J. Hennemay Mercantile aom
may and A. J. Duessa.. photographer.
The strong, thick fiLre wall and romn
sheeted windows held the Bmes in
cheek only a few omnents. The
wind carried the flaes treen the burn
Ing buildings Ln the rears through
every crack and erevice and soon the
Barnes burst out through the root. Two
powerful stresms froa the fire company
were unavalling and by 1:216 o'clock Hen
mnes.'s dry goods store, one of the largest
and best stceked in the state. was r
duced to ashes with its $*1,W stock of
goods. Adjoining Hennessy'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 uest
side, the fire destroyed three brick bul*d
ilgs adjoining the First national bank.
The first was owned by the Centennial
Brewing company, and occupied by
Schmidt & Gamer, saloon keepers. Next
came the brick store owned by H. Jonas,
and occupied by Kahnweiller's basar.
The well known dry goods and gents'
furnishing house "311," a branch of the
mammoth Bonner outfit, and managed
by Mr. Charles Palmer, was the next
to all a prey to the flames.
The fire was checked here from extend
Ing tarther to the mouth on Main street,
though a number of stores a block farther
down were damaged more or less by fire,
smoke and water. Babcock 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 being burned
Meantime, the ft -, aided by the high
wind which was blowing, was carried into
other parts of the town. The Bernard
block, a rine brick structure whlich stood
nearly opposite the place where the fire
originated on Granite street, was con
samed. In this block of buildings sev
eral business firms were located, amongst
them belng Cushing's drug store, Dr.
W. M. Schults, omce and resMience;
Dr. Reed's dentistry omice, Mrs. Deer
nlg, millinery; Samunel Perry, tailoring
establishment the offices of the Butte
and Boston Mining Co.; S. V. Kemper &
Co.'s real estate ollice; Patten's real e
tate o4fee Carter £ Hathaway's collect
ins and general agency ofce; Dr. Gillee
pie's olfeo and residence, and a number
of other ofces. West of the Bernard
block stood a brick store:owned by Mrs.
Bishop. This burned next, with all its
contents. Dr. Howard's oice and
residence was also in this block and jer
completely destroyed. West of this was
A. W. Bernard's residence and oice and
Curtis Major's real estate office. These
were gutted and the furaltue completely
destroyed. A small coniectionery store
occupied by Mrs. Peatherley, was injured
to the extent of SIC0. At this point on the
north side do Granite street the fre was
checked though some small houses in
therear of the Bernard block were de
straed. Mrs. Soot owned a small frame
bouse o the oearner of Utah and Granite
streets just opposite the Bowe. block.
This was burned up. It was occupied by
Mr. Bowes as an a... These buildings
being mostly of wood were burned rapidly.
The greatest struggle of the day was
made by the Afremen when the Bonner
building on the earner of Granite
and Main eaught Are. This build.
Ins Is almost . re proof being
prroteteed tar hge iron window shutters.
twith hltadi this the aes worked
into the erevices and soon the whole
southwest eorner of the building was afire.
PFlawe were issuing from a number e1
laes l the roof and all the windows in
the ear of the store. Grat sheets of fire
and clouds of smoke were swept by the

buldings occupied by Calkins' bookstore.
Girim's bookstor, Jamem H. Lynch's
saloon and other building, in that block
north of Bonner'. were frequently on
fire, but by the heroic work of the fOre
men the deetmuction ended when a few
cottages in the rear were destroyed.
When the fire was checked at Bonner's
the other buildings were saved, and by a

UNDER FALLING WALLS.
A Dl ta nteag Ao6d.lo to eONe of l
Iihbtrst Westbes at bs Visep.
spesel to the tianard.
Btes pt. 11.-Perhaps the most
thrill4ing ind of today's fre oecurred
at 6:45 o'clock this afternoon. The flames
had died down and the weary sfemen
were playing on th ruens. Among the
debris, where a few hours before stood
Henlnee~'s bil lstor a volunteer firemen
named William Chapman was directing a
stream at the smoukiering mass. For
three hours be had been holding the nee
sle. Behind him was another firenen
named Tucker. Suddenly the west wall
of the building was mean to sway. A ma
meat later there was a deasfening crash
and then a saining cloud of dust. Fron
the darknsas emerged the frm of Tucker,
his whlte freman's moat blackened with
dirt. N. had been slnek on thes eead
and back with falling bricks, but be cried
out, "Rave sny partner." A dosen men
sprang into the smokng ms and sd oon
pulled out the apparently lifeless
form of Chapman. His head was
bruised and bloody and he gave
no sign of life. He was removed I. a back
to the McDermott House. His wife was
summoned from South Butte and was
soon at his side. His lie is despaired of.
He is the father of eight children and Is
poor. He worked in the Montana Unon
Meanwhile the southwe teu ortr of the
Bowes buildlng still projected upward as
far as the fourth story, like a meantiel
butte, all the other walls being in a heap
on the ground. The firemen attached
ropes and tried to pull it down. Twice
the rope gave way. But the third time the
wall tottered and fell, crashing into the
rar of the wholesale liquor store of H. L.
Prank, at the corner of West Broadway
and Utah street. The roof of the building
was crushed and three rooms on the top
floor were demolished. The building is
owned by James Murray.
To-night the citimems of Butte are gath
ered on every street corner discussing the
fire. Everybody I. loud in praise of the
firemen, both the paid and the volunteer
The volunteer firemen of the Alice mine
came over from Walkerville carrying their
hose on their hacks. They did gallant
service. One citiszn to-night said, "At 1
o'clock today I wouldn't have given 5
cents for the whole of Butte." The fire
men did. indeed mnake a wonderful light.
Their victory was especially notable in
saving the Bonner Meircantile counlany
fromn complete ruin. The finnmen stoaod
almnost in the midst of the flasmes and
poured in the stream, while the home was
hurning behind them. To ,,nention the
firemen and the citiaens who hecame
heroes today would be to n ention a
f~r.,rth ,f th Is otisn .
It Is not generally believed to-night that
the origin of the fire was Incendiary. Sev
eral theories have been advanced, the
most plausible of which is that three
plunbers were at work in IBkwes' new
hotel, that the gasoline engine with which
they were working exploded and caused
the fire. This theory is considered espec
ially plausible from the rapidity with
which the entire structure was in
flames. Dr- W. M. Scbulta, whi first
sounded the alarm, says it was not five
minutes before the whole building was
aflame. Tae Missouri river could not
have quenched the fire then. But further
investigation has thrown doubts on this
theory also. One of the plumbers says
they were working on the main floor and
the fire started in the basement. Further
more, he, himself, carried the gasoline en
gine, and can produce is to show that it
dkid not cause the fire.
