The lose sustained by The Herald and
The Journal is partially covered, by
insurance, the former being insured
for $18,Oqo and the latter for $3,000.
It is understood that the building is
partially covered by insurance.
The Herald today is being issued
from the plant of Band & White, coin
mercial printers, who unselfishly plac
ed 'heir entire plant and force at the
disposal of The Herald.
When the fire ?was first discovered
the basement and first floor were coin
pletely flled with smoke. When the
alarm was given that the building was
on fire the employees lost no time in
getting out, some getting out Just in
time to prevent being overcome by the
Flames Spread Rapidly.
The flames swept through the entire
plant in an exceedingly short time.,
and it was impossible to save anything
from the building. The dense nmoko
which poured through the building
precluded the possibility of removing
any of the machines or fixtures.
The records of the company were all
in the safes of The 'Hierald and Jour
nal, and it is believed that no records
of the company were lost. A mailing
list of the tvo papers was probably
saved intact. The files of the paper
may have been entirely destroyed.
