Lts. Ma., Nov. 27. Lynn, the ctty of
shoes, was yerterday afternoon ritised by the
freateKt fire in its history, and w ith bnt two
nceptiona, the moat disastrous which has
ver visited New England. The exoept ions
are the rrat Boston fire of which de
stroyed l-tween fsO.iXWO.OOil aud '0,(.iO,)0
worth of profiertr, and tie Portland firs of
I-SW, which caused a 1m of between 110,000,
and 13.i"k,0in Yestentay'a fire started
at 11 Yi a. m., raged over eight hours, devas
tated a square Dole of the bttsinew section of
the city, and caused a loss est iniatai at
10,ii.0ji. In fact, tbe greaUT part of
Ward 4 is wiped out, as regards the im
portant shoe manufacturing blocks and
prominent places of bunuw
How the lire Started.
The fire started In Mower's woodn build
bg, on Alinont xtrvet, over the boiler, and
treavlwith such rapidity that the excellent
are dejiartmeot of tbe city waa powerless to
vpe with it. Till large wooden building
waa soon d vinied, and the flnmes leaped
across a narrow paMgeway an.1 communi
rated with tbe six-story brick block known
u Mower's bkx-k. 'When these two buildings
got well under way it was evident a terrible
eonflagration would reult. Alniurt simul
taneously the four-story wooden shoe factory
ot Bennett & Barnard, on Central avenue,
and the four-story wooden building on Al
mont street caught fire, and when under
way a hurricane of flame was in progress,
which blanched tbe checks of all who were
Fighting Against fate.
For eii;ht hours the flames had full sway,
the efforts of firemen aud citizens seeii.inily
being of no svhiL Tbe burned territory is
bounded by the following named stress:
Almont, Central avenue at its junction with
Willow street. I'nion street from its junction
with Brond to the Boyden block on both
U'les, Mr. Vernon stmut entire; Central
squjtre entire: Beach street on b..th sides aa

as far as the comer of Exchange, Spring

Sagnmore and Beach street.
A lit from Marronndln; Towns.
Ai.l arrivl from Bton, Snlnin, Marble
he.l nnd other surrounding towns, but the
nuited efforts seemed to have little effect on
the hiirric.tne of flame. Scenes familiar in
the great liiston and Chicago flrea were re
pented in all their horrors mothers flxMiig
with halies in their arms, express wagons
loading at biiinesh and dwelling holism and
transferring gNls to places of aiifety, in
many cases a vtjnd removal bins necessary,
arxl the utmost confusion and alnrm prevail
ing. The excitement lncrenx-.l and beeaiu
atnicas it h-cauie realize.1 that a contlag
ratmn threntening the entire business quar
ter was in progress.
Four wapapera ftnrned Out.
After tlw fire hail lieen burning two hours
everybody aj.reeil that it would not stop un
til it had rench.sl the ocetin, and this proved
to be the case Four daily newsiairs are
burned out The Item. Bee, IYi-ss. ami New

national tmiiks tbe Central, Security, and
First national together with the Lynn In

the finest shoe blocks in the city are in ruins
aud about twenty-five stores. At this writ
ing It is iiiisiasil.le to aay bow many dwell
ing are burned. The housw dcatroyed were
mostly those ncriiiiied by xior people, in the
vicinity of Beai-h street aud the wbarvea. It
Is impiw-ilile as yet ti estimate the insurance,
but conservative estimates place the 1m on
pro-ity at 10 isi,ooo. There were many
narrow evti from serious injuries, but no
fatalitu-. ai-e reorted. The h.'b brick fire

Burned Itself Out.
Dynamite and powder were used a
frequent Interval to blow nji wooden build
ings, but with little effect The fire virtually
burned itself out, and at Ml was con
idered under control. Both companies of
the Massachusetts militia located in Lynn
were called out and put on patrol duty.
Several of tbe shoe manufacturers burned
out have country factories and wjl transfer
their buslneaa there for the prevent. The
Currier block on Lemon street was a five
story brick structure and has been occupied
on the lower floor only by W. M. Currier &
Co. as a clothing store for two weeks. It
waa without question one of the handsomest
clothing stores iu the country, occupying the
whole lower floor the inside finish being of
quartered oak. The upper portion of the
building bad not been occupied, but was de
tlgued for busiuess ofllcea.

Insured for IV.Ouu A narrow escape from
death was that of Ernest Williamson, who,
in tbe early stages of tbe fire, volunteered to
take a line of hose up a ladder In front of
bagyr's building on Willow street to play
from the top upon tbe west wall of the
Mower block. Me was followed by several
other venturesome men, some of whom were
firemen, but almost aa soon as they reached the
roof tbe interne beat compelled them to beat
a hasty retreat, and tbe hose fell to tbe side
walk. Williamson waa the last man to de
scend, and be was nearly suffocated before ns
could get a footing on tbe ladder, owing to
iu not being "dogged." He finally climbed
down In an exhausted condition, to the In

aay tbe street were covered with a network
of fallen wire which impeded the progress
of the firemen somewhat The Central sta

burned flat and tbe flames then leaped across
Mt Vernon sreet At this juncture Lawyer
William H. ! -tills, Francis W. Breed and
others asked Mayor Newhall to have some of
the brick blocks in Mu Vernon street and th

for a t'onple of Days I Taken Big
Hole Knocked la the Alibi of Honrs
ChicaOO, Nov. 27. In the Cronin murder
case Tuesday Saloonkeeper Niemaa took a
clip at O'Sullivan' alibi by (wearing that
the iceman and Hyland were not in his saloon
on May 5, as the Hylands had sworn. Th
witness had been recently introduced to tbe
tall Hyland, and be was positive that that
Hyland w as not in his saloon last May. This
wa considered all tbe refutation the iceman'
alibi required, and tbe witness, after passing
through tbe cross-examining fire unscathed,
was permitted to depart, and Simon Olsen, a
livery stable keeper, called to bis place.
With Olsen and his employe the state in
tended to demolish, or at least materially
weaken, Bourk's alibi. This alibi was that
Bourk was all the evening of May 4 in Dan
ahy ' saloon. William Coughlin and John
O'Malley swore to seeing him there, they
together having stopped there about 7 o'clock
on their way to a wot side saloon opeuing.
A Hole In Hours' Alibi.
Olsen swore that on tbe evening of May 4
at 6: he sent hi driver, Fred Hwanson,
with a carriage to Conghlin's saloon on John
O'Malley" or.ler. He saw it stop In front of
the saloon and ton minutes after it had
driven away. Tbe carriage returned to the
stable at 1J:30 o'clock that night. Then the
driver, Swanson. told his story, nnl when he
had finished there was a hole in Bourk's alibi,
through which the wind blew w ith a dismal
souuiL lie swore that a few minutes after
stopping at Coughlin's saloon O'Malley and
a young man got into the carriage and h
drove them directly to tbe west side, not even
passing Danahy's saloon. And that neither
did they do so on tbe return, which was not
until after midnight William Coughlin wat
not with the rty. The cross-examiuatkin
was very lengthy, but the witness possessed
a clear memory, and his story remained un
shaken. The Hoertet Ioor Lors.
Mary Brunts, tbe wife of a hardware store
keeper, and his assistant in the store, bols
tered up the testimony of Mrs. Hoertel abouf
her beuig locked out by her husband on May
4, by telling of Hoertel's having bought a
kick of her the first part of May. On th
cross-examination she was asked how she re
membered the circumstance. She replied it
was because Hoertel said that he wanted to
lis-k to keep his wife out of the house. Alfred
KleLnts ke testified to having seen Mrs.
Hoertel climb into tbe window of her bouse,
because of her inability to get in through the
door. This was tlie week ending May 4. H
was very sure of the incident and date, and
the defense proved unable to queer him. An
attack on the character of August rsalzman,
tlie witness who for tbe defense swore that
Hoertel did not purchase tbe lock until April
8, was then made by the state. Chris Thiee
sen, Edward King, Charles RaiKth, Charier
Newman, all reputable business men or law
yers, declaring that tbe character of Sal
man was had. It wa very bad. So bad
tliat none of theui would believe him under

and testified to having had a conversation
with Coughlin and CapL Schaack shortly
after the murder, and tliat w ben asked by
them to give a description of the driver of
the white horse, be told them to furnish their
own description, as Coughlin knew the man
Andrew Anderson, a liveryman, swor
that tbe opemng of Nieinan's saloon occurred
on the night of May 5, and that a large crowd
was present. It was this night tbe Hylandi

that no one except the bartender was pre

fore May 5. This was in view of Coughlin's
alibi, witnesses testifying to their recollection
of the occurrences of May 4 being freshened
because of their having seen Coughlin's nam
in the paper tbe week following the murder.
Edward H. Bailey, editor of The Lake View
Record, t'sik the chair to declare that he had
never delivered O'Sullivan's cards to any
one. and at the conclusion of his testimony

said: 'This clones the case of the people."
