At about 4 o'clock yesterday morning, the
houso on Fouith street, botwceit Washing
ton anil Commercial avenues, occupied by
W. T. Scott as a soloon, billiard hall and
dance-house, was discovered to bo on lire.
During nllol Wednesday night and Tlturs
day morning, ami cspcdally tho time of the,
lire, a tierce wind was blowing, which, to
gether with tho extreme dryness ol every
thliigeombiiitlblc, made It uhnost Impossible,
onco tho lire had gained headway, to check
it. Tho lire companies were all promptly
on the ground, and worked with untiring
energy. Hut notwithstanding this lact It
was round Impossible to do more than to
conilno the firn to tho building In which It
originated For it time it was reared all the
buildings adjacent must meet the late or the
one occupied by Scott ; and had It not been,
as above staled, lor the united cil'ort- ot the
tlroin.ni and thc Individual excrllons or sev
eral gentlemen who mounted the loofs of
tho .surrounding houses, itch mint have
been tho result.
The house occupied by f-cott w.t entirely
dc'trovcd, ovcry particle of wood used In
tho construction ol tho building being con
sumed ; nothing but tho burnt mid black,
ened walls wero loft standing, and they wero
yesterday morning, under the direction or
Chic! Myers, pulled down.
Tho building was owned by Dr. Wm.
Wood, and was valued nt about W.00O.
Thero was no Insurance on ll, and ol course
the doctorloses tho whole amount. Neither
had Scott any Insurance, and lil- loss Is
somewhere lu tho neighborhood of $1,000.
Hits makes thc second time Scott has been
"burned out" within tho last five month-;
and wo have every reason to bellevo that
both tires wero the work of Incendiaries.
It Is a well-known factlthitt .Scott Is the ob
ject of the most Intense hatred by many of
mo negroes who ircqiient such dens as the
one tcept by him. Knowing this to be true,
and believing ho hail struck tho right track
and that ho could bring the gulltv parties to
jti'tice, .Scott yesterday morning sworo out i
warrants ror the arrest of three colored men
named Thompson. Mitchell and Thomas
Freeman, the latter proprietor of a hlto
dancc-houso on Walnut street, between
Fourth and Fifth streets. The warrant was
placed In tho hands of an olllcer, and the
accusod parties taken into custody.
