TI10 Model Laundry at tliu foot
of I'ltUibiux street wh complete
ly aonwimod by fire thin morninjr
tit 5H16. The alnrm wa turned
in after Uie (ltitnes liad fri!
such headway that they could not
bo atayed. The fire department
rendered moat efficient aid in
niving adjoining property. The
flre boat from Portland made
low time in reaching the scene.
The Delaware fire department of
Portland, and the police patrol
iiIro made their appearance.
Tho laundry wan one of the mo.st
modern and finely equipped in
tho Northwout. We understand
it was insured for $7,000. In
all probability tho plant will be
immediately rebuilt. The fire
was apparently of incendiary or
igin, as tho fires in the engine
wnrii nut fiillMV ill th( (VCMIMlf
and the lights had all been turn
ed out.
A fire resulting in the total
destruction of one residence and
badly damaging another took
nlaeo about midniirht on Wed
nesday night. The dwelling of
0. F. Modon on I' ox Htreel was
burned to tho ground with prac
tically all its contents, and a
house adjoining,occii)ied by Mr.
Snydur was damaged to tho ex
tent of about $500. The origin
of the fire was unknown. The
damage was partially covered by
insurance. The Motion home was
almost consumed before the
alarm was turned in, and the fire
department could tlo little except
to save adjoining property.
Hoy Wilcox, one of St. Johns'
transfer men, has sold out his
business to Mr. Gatton and son.
Mr. Wilcox has been in the bus
iness in St. Johns for the past
eight years and has been very
successful. He expects to re
main with Mr. Gatton for a time
and later will endeavor to locate
on some little ranch for a rest,
and if he feels then, that busi
ness again calls him to his old
trade, ho feels t,h:it St. Johns will
be good enough for him. Mr,
Wilcox will always boost for St.
Johns for that has been the place
whoru ho has best success.
In some devious manner the
report has been made that J. 10.
Williams will not be a candidate
to succeod himself as Justice of
tho Peace in this district. This
is utterly erroneous and unfound
od. Mr. Williams is the regular
Republican candidate and is in
tho race to win. He has just
.gotten his hand in uiivls, makes
an Ideal Justice, and should 1r
accorded the unanimous minimi
of all voters regardless ofparl.
