Omaha, Neb , Oct 3. From fl o'clock
till after 8 last night tha Omaha lire,
department had n campaign that
tested It to tho utmost. At .1:0 p. in.
un alarm brought the down town
companies to thu Farnum Street
theater. Mere a fierce blaze was rag
ing on the stage. During the next
hour live alarms were sent In. While
the opera house Are was ut Its height,
a second alarm called a portion of the
fighting force to Tvventy-sjvenlh and
Leavenworth streets where u huge
frame block was sending up a cloud
of lurid smoke At the theater the
battle was a notable one. The build
ing was a huge, live-story shell, the
auditorium being on the second iloor,
and above the stage the lly gallery
filled a dome thirty feet higher than
the roof of the building.
The lire started on the stage in tho
lly gallery. The stage hands were
busy setting the seeneiy for the even
ing performance of "The Waiis of
New York." A lly swung against the
gas-jet and in a second the wholo
mass of painted canvas was blazing
It burned so swiftly that there was no
time for lowering' the fit e-proof cur
tain that tut off the stage from the
Companies :i and '. were first there
am began the fight on thest.ge
They worj not permitted to remain
long there, for soon after they got to
work the roof of the dome fell and
six firemen and one b slander were
injured and one fireman was killed.
Their names are:

At 8 o'clock the lire at the thcalcr
was under control, and the chief
