storetl in that part of the building since the
ffre latst spring iM>docuateats of value wen
ties troy etf. The building will n-juire an en
tire new roof, and owing to the immense
qua* tity of water poured into th*? building a
large ar?.a of the plastering will have to be
renewed. The superintendent of the work
men employed on the new State de]>artment
buildii Mr. Hewdney. with his force of
?necfat ve? and laborers fifty or more In
number^ placed ladders at the rear windows
of the wing of the Na\y department, and in a
few minutes all papers of value were re
moved and stored id the new building, and
there plactsl under the '-are of responsible
watcl men. ??r?*at credit is due to Mr.
fiewdney and his men fortlieir efforts to save
the tpub'llc property. There are various
theories as to the origin of the fire?one that
it was caused by an act of incendiarism;
another that it resulted from the carelessnes
v?f some smoking employe who threw a
lighted cigar tn a mass of papers; and still
Brother that It wasraus*?tby spontaneous
rom bust ion. as was the fire of la** spri .ig.
There will be a thorough investigation.
