Conflagration Custodian Aliiier Unconscious. The handsome territorial rapllol t Santa Fe, which with its furnishings cost over l!O.Oltn, was threatened wilh destruction at 3 o'clock yester day morning, when the night watch man discovered the entire liullillng full of choking smoke, as the result of a fire which was fast gaining head way In the store room near the center of tho basement. Dnvid I,. Mlller.cus- toriian, was overcome by smoke and fe'l unconscious ft the eJgo of the fire 1 He was rescued by his son. Walter Miller, who carried hlin through a window,Into the air, where he quickly revived. it is not possible to estimate the loss at this time. It la certain to amount to several thousand dollars at least. Owing to the fact that the valuable 1 ooks in the library arc damaged and rot an office escaped some harm from moke, the amount may be much lar ger. It la said that the whole building was endangered for nearly an hour by H recently appointed night watchman, who apparently made Inefficient ef forts to extinguish the flames without tiummooing sufficient assistance. This Is borne out ty the fact that no alarm reached the Are department. To the prompt work ot Custodian Miller, bowerer, really belongs the credit for earing the capltol. . Wont ever loss there, may be is fully covered by insurance, the total amount on the building- and fixtures being about $150,000. It seema that about 3 o'clock yes terday morning Thomas Alarld, the night watchman, smelied the smoke whtch -was pouring into the corridors from tho basement. He investigated And found that in the long store mom, near the center of the building there was a fire. He could not enter the room because of the clouds of .smoke. The watchman then summon ed the engineer and several others whom he could arouse having failed to communicate with the telephone exchange because the fire had burn ed out the wires to the telephones iu ihe building at the point where they entered the capltol. The frightened men made an attempt to extinguish the blase which was smouldering for .want of air. Being unsuccessful they 'sent post haste for Custodian Miller, who, with his son, arrived quickly. Mr. Miller opened the windows lead- ing into the engine room in order to let out the smoke. Instantly there -waa a flash, of flames, as the fresh air reached the smouldering fire. Custodian Fell .Unconscious at .Edge of Fire. Before opening the windows, vMr. Miller dragged a line ot hose into the engine room and aa near to the fire as he could get . He then stood his .ground, playing a stream of water up on the fire until he grew so weak from Inhaling smoke that he could no longer hold the muzzle. He called for assistance, but the janitor force un der the directions of his son, was en gaged in getting other hose. Just what happened then Mr. Miller can not clearly recall except that he fell in tho smoke, at the edge of the fire. His eon, entering the room a minute later, found Mr. Miller and carried bim through a window to the fresh air, where ho revived. Father and" son with lines of hose, then re-entered the store room and began directing effect ive Btreams of water on the fire which was quickly subdued. The other iwa worked valiantly in fight ing, the fire, removing combustible material and riding in handling the nozzles r i :rzrr. -; i 'Corded Wood and Fuel Added to Danger. The greatest difficulty which the fire fighters had was to prevent two long cords of wood, piled in the store room, from becoming Ignited. Had this wood caught fire, It is doubtful if the building could have been saved. Besides the fuel, the woodwork of the structure was exposed to the flames and that It Ignited easily is shown by tho manner in whiclrit is charred and blackened. There is considerable mystery as to how the fire started. At first It was thought that a defective wire from the electric- light company's cable caused the names. Manager Frank Owen, however, made an examination and found the wires intact, except where the force of water from tho hose had torn tho cables loose from the fastenings. Tho lights were burn ing in tho building and there was uotbing to indicate, that a short cir cult had been formed. It therefore developed that spontaneous combus tion Has a probable cause, but wheth er it was the real reason for the fire is not yet known. A box full of sooi from the engine, which had been left in the store room, might have had something to do with the starting of the fire, which from appearances, jongmiea in mat vicimiy. jwenioers or cn custodian committee win make a thorough Investigation. Smoke Caused Greatest Damage to Structure. The greatest damage to the capltol resulted from smoke. The pungent odor of the fire is strong in the build ing, although doors and windows were opened in an effort to rid the place of the disagreeable smell. Not a single office escaped. The law books In the library two stories above where the fire burned were covered with a thick coating of smoke, giving them the ap pearance of having been scorched. The governor's office was filled witn the clinging, sooty substance. The work of the smake was noticeable oa all sides. The walls can probably be cleansed after considerable work, but at present in many spots they are covered with a dark coating, giving them an unsightly appearance. Leaves were strewn about the wide corridors where the men had left the doors open In order to clear the building of smoke. Some Safeguards Badly Needed in Capitol. Tho fire yesterday morning has given rise to many suggestions for safeguarding the territory's big head quarters. One thing is certain, and that is watchman alarm boxes should be con nected with a register in the office or home of the custodian, so that if the watchman at night failed to pull the lever at the appointed time each hour, his work during the night could be investigated. Another timely suggestion is that the exposed woodwork in the base ment should be coated with fireproof paint, which has been found a great safeguard In all large institutions and plants. Capitol . Was Damaged by Fire in 1892. The people of the territory have not forgotten the destruction of the ter ritorial capitol. bv fire, which occurred on May 12, 1892. The old capitol, which cost 1200,000, was burned to the ground by flames which origin ated in one of the cupolas. All ef forts at combatting the fire were fruit less. At that time the structure was not insured and tho whole was a total loss. .
