I IN BUILDING.
Roanoke Shows Signs of Returning
QUITE 'A NUMBER OF SUBSTAN?
TIAL BUILDINGS NOW UNDER
WAY OR ABOUT TO BE ERECT?
ED?THE BUILDING PROSPECTS
BETTER NOW THAN AT ANY
TIME SINCE 1SHS?WHAT IS BE?
Roanoke is just now about to experi?
ence something of a building boom. It
is not spasmodic, but will be the natural
outcome of a demand for better and more
substantial business houses. It will not
be a boom based on fictitious values, and
the building of houses to be seen and not
used. In fact this year the building pros
poets are better than an> year since 1803.
For the past four years Roanoke has
suffered severely from the effects of a
boom that was not of a desirable character.
She is now recovering from the effects of
the craze incident to that boom, and It is
hardly probable that the people of Roa?
noke would like to go through a similar
experience. The population of the city is
as great to-day as it ever was, and is now
in a fair way to kPep up a steady growth
in that line, as many new families hare
come here and located permanently within
I the past six mouths. Roanoke is a good
place to live, and with her natural re?
sources and many facilities, should be one
nf the best, towns in the South.
I Following will be found a statement
concerning the building prospects for the
first half of the year:
Perhaps the most important building
to lie completed this year is the Norfolk
ami Western general ofllce building,
fhis building is now tip to about the
i Extends one entire block
along .i> Iferson street, and also fronts on
Shenan loali avenue. Since the recent
I cold snap -et In work has practically been
suspended on tin- building, but it is uIl?
de 1 -food that it will bj pushed rapidly to
completion, and will, In .the course of a
few month-, be occupied by the -entire
ollicial force of the rotuL .1. C Nesbitt,
of llarrisburg, is the contractor, and the
building will be substantial Mill lasting
in every respect. It. will cost the Norfolk
and Western Railway Company nboiil
! Next in importance possibly is the new ,
public building, put up at a cost to tin'
Government ol $75,000. This is a inug
uniiccut finished building on the interior,
and a showy^ structure from the out?
side. It is located on the comer of Henry
and Church streets. It is understood that
Messrs. Spangler Uro-., of York. Pa.,
who are the contractors for the interior
work, will complete their contract to?
morrow. All that remains to be done
then before occupancy will be the placing
of tin- lighting apparatus and tli3 new
furniture. This will all be done within
the next two weeks, and on tin- 15 til of
February the po&to(llce will lie, removed
tu I his building.
I .ludgeA. R. K'in.x ami dipt. <?'.
(iooch, of St.auntou. will erect a two i to.-y
brick building. 20x80 feet, on the corner
of Kirk avenue and JelTerson street, near i
the Y. M. C. A. building. The first door
will be used for stores, ami the second j
lloor, containing seven rooms, will lie
used as ollices. II. II. Muggins is the
architect, and the plans are now com?
pleted and the contract let to .1. F. Bar- |
hour, who has already begun work. It
is expected that, the building will lie
ready for occupancy in about ninety days
from the time of letting the contract.
?I. II. Mtirstcller, the marble man. will
erect a very handsome two-story brick
building ou Campbell avenue, north of
the Farmer-' Supply Company, The
building will he 'finished with a white
marble front, and will be 25 feet wide by
ISO feet deep. It will be used as a mar?
ble yard and ofllce by Mr. Mat 'steiler; It
is understood that work will begin some
time in March, and will be pushed to j
completion as rapidly as possible,
j Nelson & Myers, hardware dealers, will
erect a plain, Hiibstnni iai three-story brick
building on Campebcll avenue, about
halfway between the Farmers1 Supply
I Company and the Terry building. The
building will be 25x 150 Jfcet, an I v ill he
I used as a hardware store. No plan for
the building has yet been arranged, nor
is it let to contract, but this enterprising
? firm intend to begin on the structure ns
soon as the winter opens up. ii is their
? intention to complete the building by
.Inly, when they will remove from Com?
merce street, their present location.
I lose n bau m Bros, have already laid the
foundation for an extension of their pres?
ent building through to Campbell ave?
nue. The building will be two or three
Stories, of brick, and will be "> feel deep.
This will give this firm a storeroom 150
feet in length, fronting on two streets,
and will be perhaps the largest dry goods
house i- Southwest Virginia. The I uild
ing is not yet let to contract, but will be
commenced as soon as the weather will
permit. It is the intention of the own?
ers to occupy the building by dune 1st.
A. L, Sibert has just completed an ad?
dition to his l!51 annex, which gives him
a depth of about "?*> Icet, and add- greatly
to the appearance of his store.
B. Lacy llogc has reeen'ly completed a
handsome seven-room frame dwelling
bouse on Campbell avenue, between Sixth
and Seventh streets. lie ha- just moved
into the new building. The plans were
furnished by II. H. Huggins, the archi?
tect, ami the building was constructed by
M. I-'. Carnor, contractor.
About, half do/en new houses have been
put up ami an- under construction in
Rclmont. There are two on Ta/.cwell
street s. e. Two on Seventh avenue s. e.
One on Eighth avenue s. e. A small
planing mill is also under waj on Kighth
avenue s. e. All these buildings are
small, but it goe- to show that Roanoke
is on the upward grade, anil instead *of
that standstill appearance from which the
city has suffered for the past several
OKE, VA., WEDNE
years, Iis shows a healthy condition of
affairs. The growth of the city from now
on is an assured fact. It may not be
spasmodic, but values have gotten down
to real worth, and fictlclous prices do not.
prevail. On the whole, Uoanoke is* a good
town, ami a good Held for investment.

Philadelphia, Pa, Jan. 20.?The fire
which started at 6:45 o'clock this morn- ?
ing from an overheated oven in the base?
ment of the six-story iron buildiug, 1309
to RUT Market street, burned over the I
nlock hounded by Thirteenth, Juniper, I
Market and Filbert streets, gutted sixty I
buildings and consumed property valued J
at$1,500,000. Many small storekeepers
lost their ail, and several hundred work?
ing people were thrown out of employ?
ment. The damaged buildings were gen?
erally fully insured.
The lire was the worst that has been
experienced in Philadelphia in a genera?
tion. The scene of the destruction was
located In the heart of the city. Many of .
the properties destroyed, especially on
Thirteenth, Juniper and Silver streets, j
the latter a small thoroughfare, were
small, old-fashioned dwelling houses.
Their destruction will probably be to the
ultimate good, if new and more modern \
buildings are erected, but it is hard oil
Surrounding this section there are
many wholesale stores! and on the south
side of Market, street, directly opposite
where the tire raged,is located the famous
store of cx-Postiiuistcr General Wanainn
ker. Though on lire time and again, and
while the front on Market street was
badly damaged, the store was saved from

Beyond the cracking of some of the
plate glass windows by the intense heat,

While there was a number of minor
casualties among the firemen, no one was
very seriously hurt, hut. one death is
chargeable to tin- lire, .lohn A. Felt, a
book-kec|ier in the employ if a linn near
the lire, dropped dead from heart disease, |
produced by the excitement.
The buildiug at 1309 to 181S Market
street, was occupied on the upper Doors
by the umbrella factory of ilirsh Bros, j
They also occupied the iower lloor of 1000 '

the corner rung in an alarm, ami then
went back to the buildiug to investigate
the (Ire. Some one bethought themselves '
nl the two bakers, and two young men
descended through the smoke and drag
ged the half sufTocnted men out.
The first engine was oil the scene three
minutes after the alarm was struck, but
the fire was already through three doors. I
The thermometer wns near zero, and

Thousands oi workers on their way to
their places of business were attracted to
the place of lire, and the vicinity soon1
became impassable. The police goi the
crowds back by great efforts and got
their lire ropes up. The trolley cars were
brought to a standstill, ami the deadly
wires by which they are run began t.?

ing to deal dealh to those who came in

The firemen worked under the most
discouraging conditions, the hosemeu and
laddcrmen taking their lives in their
hands as they crauled cautiously up the
icy-coated rungs of the ladders, dragging
after them their lines of hose, which was
encased in a solid covering of ice. The
streets around the lire were coated with
Ice, and neither men nor horses could
maintain their footing except by the ex?
ercise of the greatest caution.

frequently some man was borne away b*
his comrades and hnrried to the hospitnf
by the waiting anibnlances.
The peculiarity of the fire as it grew
larger was the grent quantity of smoke.
This further handicapped the Bremen. I
The smoke was sent to the street in a |
solid cloud and firemen were driven hack.
It wassern that the Hirsh building ?rns
doomed, and the firemen turned the iff at?
tention to saving the adjoining i roperties.
This appeared to lie hopeless.
Building after building nlong Market I
street crumbled at the ton?h of firsy
tongues, and when the rear wall of tht>
Hirsh building fell into Silver street ths
tire leaped across and entered ehe seven- i
story double irou building fronting on |
Filbert street, occupied by IVnnlap &
Clark, printers, the Collins Carriage Com- i
pany and a number of other tlrms. The
entire block ae this time was honey?
combed by tire
The tiremen feared that the great Wan
amaker establishment would go, and
they watched ir. like hawks. Mr. Vann
maker himself had arrived early, anil dis?
missing the greater number of his :i,r?oo ?
employes, marshaled under his own di?
rection the tire force of the store. These !
men were on the lower roof, and they
speedily quenched the burning brands tbnt
fell then-. The Market street front o-t
the Hirsh bui'dlng fell into the street.
A torrent of lire rolled out and Mowed)
across the wide street and brolie against)
Wanamaker's. The building shriveled
and blistered beneath tin? deluge of fire,
and a long tongue of flame shot up from
the Inch clock tower at the corner of
Thirteenth and Market streets. The .jets
from the hose could not reach the flames
in the tower .and the entire baliding
seemed threatened with destruction. The
tower cruu.blcd and fell, and this proved
the salvation of the building, for Che fire?
men were then able to tight the lire and
soon had ir under control, although the
entire front of the store was deluged with
water and the whole building was per- ?
meati il with smoke.
Under the direction of Chief Baxter,
Mayor Warwick and Director of Public
Safety Kiter, the firemen did mnguifl- j
??ent work, and by noon they succeeded
in obtaining the upper hand of the lire.
Though the fronts of the buildings on
the east side of Thirteenth street were
scorched, the tire was confined to the
block that it started in. All these build?
ings on the Market, street front, with the
exception ol Fryer, went down to de?
struction The small stores along Thir?
teenth street to Silver street shared the
same late, but the rest, of the block es?
caped destruction. It was <'litted and
ravaged by the flames, but the losses at
that pari will not be total.
While the firemen were struggling with
the tiro two alarms came in from other
sei tions of the city, and it was necessary
to withdraw several engines anil send
them where those alarms came from.
Fortunately these tires were small, ami
the comp.uiies were enabled to return to
the scene of the greater destruction.
Many of tIn- losers were tenants, ami it
was impossible to gel the loss of every?
