FIRE AT BREWERY
ENTIRE FRAME PORTION BURNED
WITH A LOSS OF
WILL LE REBUILT AT ONCE-NEW
STRUCTURE WILL BE
Fire which started about 11 o'clock
Saturday night, damaged the Schuster
Brewery to the extent of fully $8,000.
The frame portion of the plant togeth
er with the machinery which it con
tamed is almost a total loss. The val
ue of the machinery alone wns $4,000
and it is doubtful if any part of it
oan be made use of again.
The Btone cooling room and store
house with the exception of the roof
of the former are uninjured. The
cause of the fire is not definitely
known hut it is thought that it start
ed around the smoke stack in the
boiler room. A short time before the
fire the engineer was sitting in front
of the building talkng to a friend. He
stepped into the cooling room to eat
his lunch and had been gone only a
few minutes when he returned to find
the roof of the boiler-room a mass of
flames. He quickly sent in a fire
alarm and although it was hot a few
minutes until the fire company arriv
ed the flames had gained such head
way that Fire Marshall Charles Har
lin ordered the men to direct their
attention mainly toward the saving of
the ware-house, in which they were
entirely successful. Three streams of
water were brought to bear on the fire
and within half an hour after their
arrival the boys had the fire under
control and within an hour from the
time it started it was entirely exting
The brewery has been in operation
only a few months and was running

Mr, Schuster, one of the proprie
tors, states that it will probably be
rebuilt in a short time, and that the
new structure will be of stone

CALIFORDIA WINE HOUSE
BY J. M. MURPHY
VICTIM WAS DRUNK
JURY FOUND THAT SULLIVAN CAME
TO HIS DEATH BY
In a fight with J. M. Murphy, in
the California wine room Saturday
evening, about six o clcok, David
Sullivan a rancher, from near Cash
mere, reoieved injuries from which he
died a few minutes later.
Sullivan oame to Wenatchee early
in the afternoon and after drinking
considerable at various saloons became
very quarrelsome and tried to pick
trouble with several different parties.
At the Chelan Club he became very
abusive and in order to avoid trouble,
Charles Browufield, the proprietor,
requested him to leave the place,
which he did. He wandered down
the street and entered the California
Wine room and walked up to the bar
where Murphy was standing, slapping
him on the back and calling him an
insulting name. Murphy paid no at
tention at first, seeing that he was
drnnk, but finally after he had walk
ed away from the man several times
and having received' a blow * rom Sull
ivan, jMurphy struck back hitting him
on the chin and fenockng him down.
Sullvan fell on h.s back, striking his
head on the sharp oorner of the screen
that stands in front of the door. He
was renderd unconscious by the fall
and was carried to the rear of the sa
loon where every effort was made to
revive him. Drs. Gilchrist and Wal
ender were oalled but he was beyond
medical aid and expired in a few min
utes. The body was removed to the
morgue and Marshall Shrader immed
iatley placed Murphy under arrest.
Coroner MoCoy of Leavnworth was
notified and yeesterdafy morning im
pannelled a jury to determine the
cause of Sullivan's death. After a
short deliberation the jury found that
Sullivan came to his death from a clot
of blood on the brain, occasioned by a
fall and decided that there was not
enough evidence against Murphy to
hold him responsible for Sullivan's
death and recommended that he be re
Sullivan is a well-known rancher,
having resided iv Chelan oounty for
the past seven years coming here from
Indiana. He is survived by a widow
and five sons.
