A FIRE THAT Biß FAIR TO BE
GOOD WOBK BY THE FIREMEH.
A Kir* Ht art* lu Hullock's Box Factory
and Threatens the Destruction ol an
Kntlie Kow-1 he Ktanies Subdued.
The planing mill and box factory of Wil
W. Bullock, at the northeast corner of
Front and Madison street*, was observed to
be on fire aboat 1 o'clock this morning, and
not only completely gutted but for
awhile seriously threatened the safety of
several adjoining properties. The box
factory is a two story frame building with a
large one story addition running back
to Christiana street, and is the cor
property of a row of two aud t hree story
frame houses extending from 615 to 627
West Front street, inclusive. No. 615 is
owned and occupied by Charles Harper,
aud adjoins the old Western Maiket; No.
617 is owned by the estate of Benjamin
Taylor and 4* ncoooted b. George W.
LiiiHciib, No. 619 is ownjti and occupied by
Daniel Maler, bakerf No. 621 is owned
and occupied by Jacob Lloyd;
623 is owned by A. M. Quimby
«fe Co., aud occupied by Fred Hock; No.
625 Is owned by Alex. White and occupied
by David Myers, a shoemaker; and No. 627,
Bullock's box factory, is owned by A. M.
Quimby <& Co. The entire row was built at
least 40 years ago, and the dry timbers,
thoroughly seasoued, burned like tind< r.
WheD the fire was discovered the alarm
was sounded from box 24 at Front and
Justisou streets, but when the engines
rived the entire interior of the box factory
was a mass of flames. The anjoining house
was also burning fiercely, while the
Peter Galvin's house. No. 614 Christiana
street, was on fire lu several places, and
presented an alarming appearance. In ad
dition, some lumber in the yards of the
Delawars Lumber Company, on the opposite
side of the # street, was also smoking in a
The first water applied was a plug stream
from the Weccacoe, and by the judicious dU
rection of several gentleman the stream
was turned towards the houses further up
Front street, which had not yet commenced
to burn, although they were in great dan
ger. This checked the spread of the flames,
aud when the engines got into service the
lire in Galvin's house
and the flames confined almost entirely
to the planing mill and the two houses ad
joining, Nos. 625 and 623. Mr. Lloyd's
house, No. 621, and also Maier's, bakery,
No. 619, were seriously threatened, but the
persistent application of heavy streams of
water prevented their destruction.
The burned buildings were badly gutted,
and in additiou the residences of Fred Hock
and Jacob Lloyd were flooded with water,
entailing a severe loss. The furniture from
these houses, and also most of that
from Myers', adjoinlug the planing mill,
was removed across the street, and, of
course, sustained considerable damage by
the transfer. Peter Galvin dumped his
furniture into Christiana street, when the
destruction of .his house was threatened,
and the residents of the row of houses on
the north side of ChrUtiaua street also put
their furniture on the sidewalk, and pre
pare«! for a haofcy flight. , TH*»ir foare wore
not groundless, as a slight ureene was coming
from the southwest, aud
it looked as if the
tunately the breeze died out, and this,
coupled with the energetic and well-directed
efforts of the firemen, put the flames under
complete control. The fight was a stubborn
one, as the flames got under the weather
boarding of the building No. 623, invaded
for a while the house of Mr. Lloyd,
and for awhile threatened to spread
from this house to Maler's bakery.
Under the circumstance* it was a
a great triumph lor the fire department to
keep the fire down as well as they did.
The losses are hard to estimate. The plan
ing factory buildiugs
$1,000 or fl,200, but
$10,000 worth of machinery
worth of stock, all of which
ruined. Mr. Galvin's loss will be $200 or
$300, and $500 each will doubtless cover the
loss on the houses Nos. 621, 623 and 625.
Messrs. Lloyd, Hoch and Meyers lose con
siderable in furniture damaged by removal,
which the former, however, has an insur
ance, as well as on his house. The loss
on all the houses will be covered by insur
ance, and there was also an insurance on
Bullock's machinery. Daniel Maler, baker,
at No. 619, also had about $50 worth of flour
destroyed by the water which ran into his
it was nearly daylight before the fire was
finally extinguished, and a heavy shower of
rain relieved the firemen of their duty.
The fire created a great excitement in the
neighborhood and drew large crowds of
people from all parts of the city.
Incendiarism is not suspected and the im
pression is that the fire originated from the
furnace under the boiler of the planing
mill. This establishment has long
been a source ot dread to the
people living In the neighborhood, and they
weie not at all surprised when their fears
at last realized. The frame shed used
as the planing mill was erected in violation
of city ordinance, and when the city author
made to sheath
efforts were ever made to render the corner
reasonably safe from fire.
The adjoining resident* would be much
pleased if in rebuilding the owners are pro
hibited from patching up the present build

John Carroll, aninmateof the Almahouse,
will be 108 years old In a couple of months.
He was born In Galway county, Ireland,
and come to this country when about 20
years old. He settled In this city and has
lived here ever since. Up to within a few
years his faculties were un impared, but of
late his memory is becoming defective and
lie was consequently unable to tell the
day and year In which he
but his claim as to ae ■ is undoubtedly well
wounded and Is substantiated by the fact
that Simon Maloney living at Seventh and
Pine streets, who will In a short time cele
brate his 92 birthday anniversary has known
Carroll since he (Maloney)was a boy. Ma
loney was born in Galway, and says that
Carroll was a young man when he was born.
For years Carroll worked at the Lobdell
foundry but 10 years ago hurt his back and
has been unable to do laborious work
since. He was the father of nine children
the youngest of which is still living and
is at present about 50 years old.
In conversation with a representative of
the Gazette Carroll stated that his family
were not unusually long lived, and that he
bad always been used to taking stimulants,
and that he had never been sick a week in
his life. He is considerably bent, but man
ages to walk about the corridors of the
Almshouse without difficulty, by the
a cane. His hair is
his eyesight is still g«>o«l. Men living about
this city say that for the past 30 years that
Carrol has looked the same, with the ex
ception that he is becoming of late very
stupid. His chances, however,
favorable for living a good many years, a*
his health is remarkably good.
Despite the heavy rain which began fall
ing about 5.30 this morning and continued
with unabated fury for the major part of
the morning, the excursions which left this

o'clock in eight curs with a total of
aoout 350 excursionists. The Norma^ocial
Club's excursion to Atlantic City via West
Jersey and the steamer 8. M. Felton took
about 500 persons, and & sorry looking lot
they were. Young ladies who evidently
dressed before the storm commenced, and
who were unable to change their dresses
came to the >oat in pinks, whites and lawns
that were wet and muddy all around the
bottom ol the skirts. Others whose um
brellas were small were as wet as water
could well make them, but notwithstanding
all these inconveniences they appeared happy
and after commenting on each others ap
pearance and an attempt, if possible, to
make their finery look presentable, would

Of Tuesday's game the Times Journal
gives the following account: A fumble aud
wild throw by McLaughlin and wild
throws by Knowles, together with an ill
judged run from third to home in the ninth
inning enabled tbe Quickstep club to score
victory over the Anthracites yesterday.
Lang being disabled, McLaughlin
played short, and Knowles second,
and this proved an unfortunate
disposition, fbe two massing
five out of the six errors made. The Quick
step's playing was greatly improved since
their last visit, the nine being strengthened
by the addition of Fox, late pitcher ior the
Baltimore club, and Keiuzle, centre fielder
of the Merritt*, but the game was easily in
tbe hands of the Anthracites yesterday, and
d their defeat is another addition to the
many recorded on the homo field through
carelessness in Qelàing.

How a North Ward Charmer Punished a

Last evening a gentlemen m ith a lady
each arm promenaded up Edgmont avenue
enjoying the double measure of bliss that a
gentlemen so ßurrouuded naturally would.
When tbe party reached Broad street a gen
tleman there toiached the fair eharmers
the arm, at the 6ame time uttering a note
expressive of the joy he would feel if he was
the other fellow. The gallant took umbrage
at this, and disengaging the ladies' arms,
straightened himself up and remarked seu
tentiously, "Keep your hands off my lady;
wbeu you hit her you hit me."
The other very elegantly replied by telling
him to "go bag his head." but he politely
declined so to do and said he would put an
eye on the other fellow if his crowd was not
there. One word led to another, in which
the coarsest language was used, notwlth
ftandiug the proximity of the ladies, but no
blows were struck. The gal laut gazed
around and seeing two of bis friends on the
