Are b g.
Bhcrily before 18 o'clock last night
some switchmen in the C, R. I. & P.
yards discovered fire in the car repairers
shops situated in tbe swi ch yards just
below the foot of Twenty-ninth street
An alarm was immediately turned in and
the department responded in exceedingly
good time, the Gilpins and Franklins be
ing also on the ground. The fire again
proved to be the work of incendiaries, it
having been started in the rear of the
building behind some oil barrels, where a
portion of the siding had been torn away
to allow the fire to burn into the interior
of the building. Its early discovery and
the prompt action on the part or the Bre
men prevented the building from being
totally destroyed. Nearly all (he tools
belonging to the workmen, are damaged
more or less, and this, together with the
donai6 to the buildiDg, it is thought by
Car Inspector Roderick, will foot up
from $800 to $1,000. There is no insur
ance on the tools.
This fire was not entirely subdued un
til the alarm sounded for fire in the Fifth
ward, and the two volunteer companies,
the Fr&oklios and Gilpins, dashed down
to the corner of Twenty-third and First
avenue, ia tbe yards near which the
switchmen's shanty of the C, R I. & P.
was in flames. The building was de
stroyed with its contents, consisting of
three silver lanterns, one of which was
the properly of James Logan, and was a
souvenir from the switchmen's union, a
number of rubber coats and boots, the
loss being about f 300 on building, and
5100 on contents. Box car 14,172 of
