About 9 o'clock last night fire was
discovered at the C , M. & St. P.
depot on Twentieth street between
First and Second avenues. This time it
was in the freight department of the depot
and was undoubtedly the work of an in
cendiary as a man was seen bv several
people running away from the depot just
a few moments before the fire was dis
covered. He was also Been tiptoeing
through the Peoria depot building, and
when the alarm sounded he ran down the
bank toward the river. An alarm was
immediately, turned in and the depart
ment responded with tbe same prompt
ness that it has at every alarm since its
introduction. Clay Darrab, tbe night
operator at the depot, after sending in tbe
alarm, did what be could in the way of
extinguishing tbe fire with the old fash
ioned bucket system, but the draft
had carried the flames up into
the attic where they could not be reached
without getting onto tbe roof. As soon as
the department reached the scene-the
firemen cut a hole in the roof and tbe
flames were extinguished in a few mo
ments, scarcely any damage being done
to the building. A small pile of freight.
near where the fire was started, was
slightly damaged by water, but it will
not amount to scarcely anything.
The manner in which the department
turned out and in which the fire was han
dled was the subject of much praise from
citizsns who appreciate the benefits to be
derived from a system of public improve
ments which are abreast of the times.
When the alarm is in working shape the
department will get out quicker than it
did last night.
Oae of the horses on the hook and
ladder truck slipped and fell at the cor
ner of Second avenue aud Twentieth
street, but fortunately was not even
scratched. The drivers are both excel
lent men, but the accident last night
shows the necessity of using more than
ordinary care in turning corners.
