The Bohllti Hotel Caught Fire, bat the
Guests Escaped The l'ublio Library
Damaged, but the Books Were
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
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
. 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
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

A SAVINGS HANS. (J8PENDH.
The Oldest Financial Institution of New

Nashua, N. IL, March 27. 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,

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
