added the danger of the firemen.
Henry Dahl and George Stein had
an outside room but lost their trunks
as they could not get to the trunk
rooms. Will Finnegan and Ed. Ren
ner were both out of town but their
friends stripped their rooms. They
also lost their trunks. George Kit
tleson and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Tom
Stewart, Ike and Louis Blooston and
Henry Cominsky each suffered some
loss. All had their goods damaged
F. S. Lycan was asleep in the
Markham when the fire started but
was on the scene in a few minutes
and aided Chief Geil in directing the
fire fighters. There were several
transients' in the house but their
losses* were slight. G. G. Winter's
laundry was saved as* it had not yet
been delivered and was under the
counter. All of the lobby furniture
was carried into the street and sav
ed before the floors fell through. The
bar was closed because of election
day and before it could be entered
and the contents saved, the fire had
exploded the alcohols* and gutted the
Served Hot Coffee.
The drizzle and snow which fell
last night aided the firemen to some
extent as it did away with the pos
sibility of other fires starting by
sparks. It was cold work for the
men and hot coffee was served at 10
a. m. The men were warned by both
Mr. Lycan and Chief Geil not to
take any chances and as far as can
be learned no one was injured.
M. F. Cunningham had a narrow
escape in the north-east corner of
the building when the third floor fell
in. The floors had gone through in
the other rooms and he had been
warned, but insisted on staying in
the room until the floor sagged from
under him. He was pulled out bymeans
the rope he had around his waist
Ray Dennis had a close call when a
gust of wind belched some smoke and
flame in his face as he was working
at a basement window.
William Sibley, the new linotype
operator at the Pioneer, had an inrupt
side room at the Rex and lost all of
his personal belongings as he was
at work when the fire started. Henry
Cominsky had been to Minneapolis
and returned on the 4:30 train. He
was asleep when the boy called him
but lost no time in getting out of the
building He lost all but a few pieces
of clothing. Sergeant Birrer, head
of the recruiting office, was out of
the city and nothing was saved from
his room. He had many valuable
papers which were a total loss.
Mr Lycan stated at noon that he
had leased the store room formerly
occupied by Gill Brothers to Anton
Anderson and Mr. Anderson was
to have taken possession this morn
ing. Mr. Lycan recently sold the ho
tel bar to William Meyers. Mr. Mey
ers, lost everything.
Stand Pipe'Broke Off.
A A Carter was passing the hotel
as he heard the call of "Fire." He
rushed to the second floor and with
the engineer turned a house hose on
the Are at the bottom of the laundry
shaft. They had all of the blaze out
and the fire nearly under control
when the top of the pipe on the third
floor was pulled off or broke off and
that let out the pressure so that the
second floor hose was useless Mr
Carter said that a few minutes more
of water would have put the fire out.
When the department arrived, the
entire basement was so full of smoke
that the men "could not go in andand
smoke was pouring from third floor
windows The flames went up
through the plastering and soon
broke out over the entire third floor.
Forty-five students were absent
from high school this morning and
session was held this afternoon.
Chief Geil ordered Frank Thome
to assist him with the hose. Thome
retused and Chief Geil immediately
took him into custody. He was lock
ed in the city jail and was in for
about one hour before Matt Thome,
father of the boy, obtained his reis
lease. Several people narrowly es
caped injury this morning from
teams that were passing through the
crowd at the fire Teamsters would
not shout a warning but would wait
until the horses would bump against
the people and let them get out of
way the best way possible.
