The Bohllti Hotel Caught Fire, bat the Guests Escaped The l'ublio Library Damaged, but the Books Were Safely Removed. MiLWAUKF.it, March 27. Fire broke out shortly after midnight last night in the four-story block on Grand ave nue, in the business center owned by the Planklnton estate aud occupied by Landaur & Co., wholesale dry goods, and Tanner & Co., furnishing goods, and soon that structure was in flames. Then the SchllU hotel caught fire, but the guests had all been aroused In good time aud all escaped, fully dressed and carrying their valuables. Next the fire swept to the building owned by the Davidson estate, occupied by Mor gan & Co. and Barling & Wambold, re tail clothiers. Other stores followed. Before 1 o'clock the flames had crossed Fourth street aud were feeding on the handsome Y.M.CA. building, and twenty minutes later the two up per floors of Library block were a mass of fire. About the time the de partment under Chief Foley's di rection had begun its work to save the; library and the three or four clothing and dry goods stores it con tains, the . fury of the blaze had spent itself on the south side of the avenue, after having reduced the Plankin ton's block, occupied by Lan daur & Co. and Tanner & Co. to ashes. The flames spread to the property on the west side of Fourth street, to the Y. M. C. A. building and to the upper portion of the Library block. It was only by desperate work that the library was saved and at 2 o clock the Morgan store had been possibly saved from all danger, except the upper floor. Ihe Library block suffered damage no more than one-eighth of its total cost The fire next leaped across the north side Of the avenue,' ruining the art store of Koobel & llclnhart, two or three saloons and lodging houses and a .cheap, ramshackle building. There its course was checked.. , , Tbe Library building is owned by the Planklnton estate. At one time St was thought nothing could save the struc ture. On the fourth floor of the Libra ry building were the rooms of the Uet mania society. In one of these was a library containing from 800 to 1,000 books. Water and smoke did great damage here. The Planklnton estate suffered a loss of about $250,000 on the buildings occu pied by Landaur & Co., Tanner & Co.' and the Reliance Storage Co., which were practically one. The insurance was estimated last night at 80 per cent, which would make the loss the insurance companies are to bear ap proximately 9200,000 on that structure alone. . Max Landaur, of Landaur fc Co., said that the stock carried at present by the firm was valued at (400,000, and he, too, usually carried about 80 per cent insurance. The Tanner company's loss was said to be about 9100,000, though no mem ber could be found to give an accurate estimate. It was thought the furniture stock was insured for about 75 per cent The Davidson estate was the owner of tho building at 314 and 318 Grand avenue, between part of the Plankln ton building that was occupied by Tan ner & Co. and the Matthews building, in which the retail house of Morgan & Co. was located. The only occupant of the storerooms in this building were Barlirvg & Wambold, retail clothing, though there were a few offices in tho upper two stories. The structure was one of frame, with a vencer of brick, so the fire underwriters say, and was worth ?20,000 at the outsiJc. The in surance was said to foot up $l."i,003. Burling & Wambold had just re ceived 11 largo consignment of spring goods and tho entire stock, as well ns the building was lost completely. With the new goods the stock was worth S',10,000 or more, so one connected with the firm said. The insurance was about $70,000. The Y. M. C A. build ing was valued at $75,000 and was to tally destroyed. Other houses brought the total up" to gl.OfiS.OOO. V. Hopkin son Smith's pictures represent over a year's hard work in Europe. It is not known whether he carried any insur' nnce. CX-OFF1C1AL.S ARRAIGNED. The Colorado House InveatliraHnir Com. uiliteu Reports tulMWfnl rr.,ctltea. IJknvkh, Col., March 27.

The Senior Metho'.ws liioricer In China Undismayed by Heathen Mobs. Topeka, Kan., March 27. J. W.

The Nashua savings bank, for forty-one years the pride of New Hampshire, re garded as safe and sound as tho rock of Gibraltar, has closed its doors, and will probably never resume business. The Institution has $2,700,000 in deposit, and its depositors outnumber those of any other bank in the state. Its de positors were mainly poor people, and the excitement last night among the mill help over tho announcement of the suspension was intense. The bank was heavily loaded with western farm mortgages, and it barely struggled through the panic of 1993, when a run was made on it. The past six months' losses on real estate undor foreclosure were $45,000, and Inability to collect in terest and notes on western holdings, followed by the demands of depositors, has left it with little available cash and quick assets.

A SHORT CONFLICT. Three Would-Be Train Robbers Killed by Railroad Men. RESULTS OF A NEW PLAN." The Adam Express Manager Thinks Hav. Ing Detectives on Train to Prevent Bobbery I Better Than Em ploying Them Afterward. CnATTAKOO0A,Tenn., March 27. Just as the southbound night express on the Queen & Crescent railroad, which left -Cincinnati at 8 o'clock last night, reached the south end of the tunnel, a mile north of Greenwood, Ky., at 4 o'clock this morning, six men signaled to the engineer to stop. T. R. Griffin, superintendent of detectives of tho road, had received some warning that a hold-up was being planned and, with two bra re assistants, was in the express car. As soon as' the train stopped tho three officers and the mes senger engaged the bandits In a short but sharp conflict, which was over in about ten minutes. Then It was found that one of the robbers had been killed outright, another so badly wounded that he died in less than half in hour, while a third succumbed to his wounds while being brought here as a prisoner. The other three men escaped, but there is every reason to believe that all of them were wounded more or less seriously. The outlaws fired many shots, but not a per son on tbe train was even wounded, though there were some narrow es capes. The robbers were not known and it Is supposed that they were na tive mountaineers, green at the busi ness. II. Haggard, a passenger, on the train, says the excltoment among the passengers was intense while the shooting was In progress. At Cincinnati General Manager Car roll, of the Queen & Crescent route, and General Manager Barrett, of the Adams Express Co., received word this morning of the repulse of the- train robbers, and were both overjoyed at the news. Mr. Carroll is proud of the fact that this effective service was per formed undor the immediate direction of the special agent In charge of the police department of the road. General Manager Barrett, of the Adams Express Co., says that ho looks upon this as an important event The express company has adopted the plan of a secret service to protect Its prop erty against robbers. This is the first retrUlt of the new method. While it is costly, it is Infinitely more effective than any amount of detective work to arrest and punish robbers. Preven tion, he thinks, In this matter, la bet ter than cure. The Bhlloh Commission. WABIHN0T05, March 27. The secre tary of war has ordered the Bhlloh commission, consisting of Col.
