HEW STEAMER BURNS
The Urania, Which Succeeded
the Volunteer, Destroyed
PASSENGERS ABE LANDED SAFELY
Number From Rock Island'
to be Rebuilt at
The steamer Urania, resently pur
chased by Capt. Walter A. Blair to
take the place of the burned Volun
teer in the Rock Island-Burlington
trade, was destroyed by lire last
night at the Muscatine shore while on
her way down stream.
The tire was discovered at 9 o'clock,
just as the boat was about ready to
get under way. Capt. Walter A.
Blair was standing on the main deck,
when he heard a racket and thought
it was eouie of the children aboard
racing through the cabin, but as he
turned he noticed passengers hurry
ing forward, who breathlessly ex
claimed that the boat was ablaze. A
glance aft showed this to be true and
immediately he sounded the alarm
for hose and buckets, the crew re
sponding readily to the call to battle
tlames. All of the passengers were
apprised of the tire the first thing and
requested to take their belongings
with them and got off in good order.
Kvidence of fright was apparent among
the ladies accompanied by small chil
dren, but their fear was soon allayed
and a panic was averted, all being
landed in safety. The crew rushed
bravely -to combat with the Uery ele
ment and never gave up, but their
best efforts were unavailing, as the
boat was soon a mass of dimes.
Though the tlames bad spread with
remarkable rapidity and completely
enveloped the upper part of the boat,
which looked like a huge bontire when
they arrived, the volunteer liremen
made their well directed efforts known
in a telling way, and in a short time
had the bls3 under control, and with
in three-quarters of an hour complete
ly extinguished, their gocd work sav
ing the hull, boilers, machinery and
Boat's Equipment UooU.
"In my experience of -'5 years'
steamboating, I have never had $10
of damage by fire occur to any boat
directly in "my charge," said Capt.
Blair last evening.
"the tire equipment on the Urania
was unusually good and worked well,
but was unable to quench a lire revel
ing in paint, oil and dry wood.
The company is not disheartened
and the Urania" will be rebuilt and
made as good as new to resume her
place in the Bock Island-Burlington
trade as soon as possible.
The boat Is insured in George W.
Neare's agency, of Cincinnati, the
amount of the policy being $12,000.
As this is marine insurance, the in.
suring company, as is often the case,
may rebuild the boat, paying 60 per
cent of the cost, leaving the balance
to be borne by the owners."
Capt. Blair will remain in charge of
the wreck until the underwriters ar
rive to adjust the loss.
Urania a Model New Boat.
The steamer Urania was purchased
by Capt. Blair for the Carnival City
Packet company July 16, 1901, for
$17,000, and repairs and improve
ments costing $12,000 have been made
since then. The boat was bough:
from the Bay Bros., of Ironton, Ohio,
and was built at Marietta only three
years ago last November. Capt.
Blair examined fully 100 boats on the
Ohio and Mississippi rivers before
selecting it. on account of its speed,
lightness of draft and tine passenger
accommodations. The boat has been
a signal success since her first trip in
the trade, and the captain and crew
are much depressed over this serious
loss at this time. The boat is a suc
cessor to the Volunteer, burned and
sunk at Bock Island April 19, 1900,
entailing a loss of $12.0CU, so that
the burning of the Urania is the sec
ond misfortune befalling the com
pany. The Passenger List.
Among the 30 passengers on the
Urania was a party of 15 ladies who
were making the round trip from
Keithsburg, 111. Mrs. Peter Pfaff and
fonr children and Mrs. Louis Englin
and four children, of Hock Island,
were among the passengers and were
the only ones who had retired for the
night. They lost no time in dressing
when told the boat was afire, one of
the ladies in her haste forgetting to
put on her shoes, while a couple of
tne children were likewise bareiootea
when they reached the Hotel Grand.
The other passengers on the ill-fated
craft were Mrs. Smith, who was re
turning to her home in Burlington
from Davenport, and Mr. and Mrs. L.
B. Miner, of Texas, who have been
visiting in Davenport.

MILE OF RAIL LOOSE
AS RESULT OF A WRECK.
A wreck between St. Divid and
Yates City on the Q yesterday morn
ing tied up the Rushville division for
some time. Passenger No. 48 leaving
here in the morning was an hour late
when it reached the point where the
wreck occurred, and crew of a freight
train, the other train mixed up in the
wreck, thinking that the passenger
had passed, started off a coal track,
in the same direction as the passenger
train. J. be wreck occurred
on a curve. The freight train was
running about ten miles an hour and
the passenger at the rate of 30 miles.
Both engines and some of the freight
cars were damaged, but the wreck
would have been of little consequence
were it not for the fact that the
freight engine was derailed. Instead
of waiting for the proper appliances
for getting the engine back on the
rails, they dragged her over the ties
to St. David, a distance of a mile-and-a-half,
loosening the spikes hold,
ing the rails and necessitating the re
building of the whole line for that
distance, which delayed all the St.

Uolf Care for Consumption.
Golf is advanced as a cure for con
sumption by a Chicago physician,
Dr. H. M. Thomas, in his indorse
ment of the open air phthisis care.
The game, he says, is a good means
of getting the consumptive out into
the fresh air and sunshine every day.
Chicago physicians are as a unit in
their indorsement of the treatment
suggested by the Boston scientist,
although they say it is not a new one,
but they take exception to his plan of
taking in the patients suffering with
the worst forms of the disease. They
regard the treatment too severe in
the winter for the worst cases of the
Open air by all means for all con
sumptives," said Dr. Thomas. Let
them get out and play golf. When
once interested in the game they will
spend half their time in the sunshine
and fresh air. Tne most severe cases
of the disease should not be exposed
in the middle of the winter, but ways
can be found by which they can get
in the open air."
The open air treatment, as sug
guested bv the Boston man, is a good
one," said Dr. Arnold C. Klebs. -The
method has, however, been in use in
a few places in this country. Cures
have been effected by the method.
The comparatively new feature to the
Boston plan is the suggestion that the
treatment can be given in thi3 climate
in winter as well as in summer. It is
now in use in eastern states. It is to
be regretted that Chicago has not a
sanitarium in which the treatment
can be administered."
That plan, with variations in de-
tail, una uocu iu uoo iuquj t v i i o t
said Dr. E. Fletcher Ingals." "The
results have been good. It is possible
for patients to live in encampments.
such as are proposed, all winter if they
are properly protected from the sud
den cnanees. xne iresn air treat
ment, with proper diet, will cure all
cases of consumption that arc cur
