Last Friday morning about 3:30
o'clock, John Ilea, wlnl on his way
to work at W. J. Guest & Co's. meat
shop, discovered a blaze in Barker
it (jo's, cooper shop on Kmb'irgo
street and notified officer Roberts and
nightwatchman Tucker, who extin
guished the fire without callinf out
the fire company. The place where
the fire had broken out was a small
shed adjoining' the rear part of the
building, and was used by the coop
ers as a place to heat barrels.
About an hour afterwards fire
again broke out in the rear of J. P.
Street & (Jo's, ware-house, very
close to the place of the first blazs,
but whether it originated from the
coopers shop is not known. The
fire alarm was immediately sounded,
and the company responded quickly,
but the flames spread rapidly and
had gained great headway before
the fire laddies reached the scene.
Barker's two ware-houses, Street
fe Co's ware-house, M. Cohen's sa
loon and John A. Edward's shoe
shop, were completely destroyed,
and Harlan Bros. & Parks' livery
stable, owned by Capt. Black, was
damaged to the extent of about $2.'0;
J. P. Street & Co. were heaviest
losers, and carried no insurance.
Their ware-house was stocked with
27 buggies and surries, 13 farm wa
gonsand various kinds of farming
implements, and these together with
the building, were valued at about
Barker & Co's. buildings and con
tents were valued by the owners at
$5,000; some think this valuation too
high; the insurance was $1,500 on
the contents and $1,000 on the build
ing. John A. Edwards' house and con
tents were valued at about $500,
with no insurance.
M. Cohen's house was valued ,by
the owner at $1,000 and his stock at
$1,000; a more conservative estimate
would place the figuers at about
half; about $250 of the stock was
saved; no insurance.
The damage to Harlan Bros. &
Parks' stock was about $100, which
was fully covered by insurance.
General sympathy is felt for Mr.
Street in his severe loss, but he is
fortunate in having a large stock,
big trade and a host of friends
still left. The reason he had no in
surance on this ware-house and its
contents, was because the rate was
too high. His hardware store and
his other ware-house (the Kuhn &
Turpia old stand) ire both insured.
The extra fine work of the firemen,
together with the wind and rain be
ing in their favor, was all that saved
Columbia from the biggest flro it has
had for years.
Messrs. Street & Co., will at once
begin the erection of a brick build
ing to take the place of their ware
house, and Mr. Edwards will also
rebuild his shop. Capt. Black is al
ready having the burned roof on the
stable replaced. The work of remov
ing the debris is progressing rapidlv,
and work on the new buildings will
commence as soon as practicable.
Fire on Sixth Street.
Early Tuesday morning the resi
dence occupied by Mr. Geo. P. Frier
son and mother on Sixth street, and
owned by Mr. R. C.Gant, caught fire
from the cooking stove in the kitch
en. The family were awakened bv
the smoke and the alarm was given
to their neighbors, who, with buck
ets of water, rendered valuable assis
tance in checking the flames until
the fire company arrived. The fire
was confined to the kitchen, and
this part of the house was damaged
to tho extent of about $150. A great
deal of damage was also done to the
furniture by removal. Mr. Frierson,
who hid been confined to his bed
for several days with sickness, was
removed to Mr. O. P. Rutledge's
house adjoining. Insurance to the
amount of $1,200 was carried on the
house in companies represented by
Hendley & Wilson.

P. W. Dodson,
In the Count j Work House, Say the
In the Cane Against Mr. Stone and Her
Son Walker Motion Entered For
a New Trial.
One of the two cases of the State
against Mrs. Mary Moore, alias
Stone, and her son Walker Stone,
for larceny, was taken up in the
Circuit Court Monday morning and
occupied the whole time of the
court throughout Tuesday and Wed
nesday. These cases have been the
cause of much interest, as this is
the second time the defendants
have been tried in this court on
these charges. The first trial re
sulted in a verdict of one year in the
State penitentiary, but an appeal
was taken to the Supreme Court,
and this tribunal ordered that the
defendants be given a new trial.
Good sized crowds listened to the
evidence Monday and Tuesday, and
the argument was begun Wednes
day. The case was given over to
the jury Wednesday at noon, and at
5 o'clock in the evening they re
turned a verdict of ten months 'each
in the county work-house. Six
jurors wanted to send them to the
penitentiary for five years, and six
wanted them acquitted, and the
case was finally compromised as
The State was represented by
Voorhies & Fowler and L. B.
Hughns, while Figuers & Padgett, J.
A. Smiser and J. H. Fussell repre
sented the defendants.
A motion was entered for a new
trial, but the court postponed con
sideration until the other case
which was taken up yesterday
should be finished.
Tho Stone family has a reputation
in Maury County and especially in
the neighborhood about Carter's
Creek that is not at all enviable,
and their cases will be watched
with a great deul of interest.
The case of State against General
Washington, colored, was tried last
Friday, and the dusky General was
given twelve months with the road
gang. The charges against him
were assault and battery and carry
ing a pistol.
The case of State against James
A. Turner, for murder, has been
postponed until the next term of
