GREAT NEW YORK FIRE
A Million Dollars Worth o:
Property Destroyed.
ROGERS, PEET & CO. BURNED OUT
Skyscraper of the name Life Insur
ance and Pe-stal Telegraph
Companies Gutted.
New fork, Deo. . In blinding
rain storm tonight, the .massive block
of buildings on Broadway, No. 953 to
259, aud included between Murray and
Warren stieets, was almost destroyed
by fire. Within three hours more than
fl, 000.000 worth of property was de
stroyed.
The fire began- in the five-story brick
building ocoupied by the men's fur
nishing firm of Rogers, Peet & Co., on
the southwest corner of Broadway and
Warrant street. Adjoining the Rogers
Peet building, and south ol it, was the
magnificent white building of the Home
Life insurance Company, and next to
this was the brownstone building of
the Postal Telegraph Company, erected
at a cost of millions only a few years
ago. Within a few minutes after the
discovery of the fire the Rogers-Peet
building was a roaring furnace, and an
alarm had been turned in - wbioh
brought more than a score of engines to
the scene. It was but a short time
when the flames had eaten through the
wall of the Home Life, and were roar
ing high above that lofty stiuoture,
Thousands of people had gathered on
the soene, and the bunding glare of the
flames lighted np the lower part of the
city- Even in the downpour, the great
crowd of people grew and the police
reserve were called out from many sta
tions and kept the people back for
blocks. Great showers of sparks were
oamed in ail directions by the gale,
that blew 60 miles an hour. It was a
picturesque fire.
The Home Life Insurance building
was occupied by that company and a
large number of . men prominent in
various line of business. Eveiy effott
was made to save the valuable papers
stored in some of the offices, but many
of these were lost The offices of the
rapid-transit commission were on the
ninth floor of this building, and it is
believed that all the plana and schemes
of work with which the company has
been working for many years are de
stroyed.
In the Postal building, as well, theie
were many serious losses of a private
natnre, and when the flames reaobed
the operating room of this structure.
which they did within three hours of
the outbreak, the one or two solitary
operators who remained at their posts
were compelled to flee for their lives.
The fire burned even moie fiercely in
the Home Life building, owing to the
great height of this structure and in an
incredibly short time the upper ball of
this magnificent building was in flames.
The water towers in the street were
able to throw their heavy streams only
into the lower part of the structure, snd
the firemen, though they worked with
great bravery and untiring energy, in
the blinding smoke and hear, could do
little in the face of such a fierce sweep
of flames and gale. It was only a ques
tion of time when the Postal building,
so far as the npper stories were con
cerned, went the way of the others.
The estimste of the losses by Chief
Bonner after midnight was $1,000,000
with a probability of a still further loss
should the fire continue to make any
thing like rapid progress. At that
hour, however, he believed that he had
the fire under control within reasonable
limits.

ing; of the deck immediately over the
engine room was torn into splinters.
and steam poured np through the open
seams in clouds.

found that it had completely filled the
engine-room ana nreroom, and that all

dent occurred, and had died in the at
tempt. Two of the firemen were found

On of the grt mistake mad by

.Mining World. As a general thing,
owners of mines which can be worked
at a substantial profit have no need to
look for purchasers, and are not apt to
look for them. It is tor this reason
that those who oame to the West lor
mines are disappointed; that, while
they are offered partly developed Of
opened properties, the paying or going
mines are not then for sale, except at
what they consider high prices. Alter
a man or company has prospected,
opened and brought to a producing
point a good mine, it is worth as much
to them as any one, and the owners ate
unwilling to sell except at a good profit,
in fact, such properties are seldom
offered for sale. People have to hunt
them up, and then have hard work to
get a bond on them, the owners gen
erally preferring to keep on working.
