Shortly before five o’clock yesterday afternoon, tire was discovered in the planing mill of the "Wausau Box and Lumber Cos. and in less than it takes to write these notes on the subject the entire plant was one mass of flames, and all the water in Wausau could not have saved the building, though had there been better water and hydrant service the fire might have been checked and confined to the plant alone. As soon as the tire was discovered an attempt was made to use the company’s hose. Some difficulty was experienced in getting it down from its hangers and connecting it, and before it could be made use of the flames swept so rap idly through the building that the hose had to be abandoned and the building left to its fate. An alarm was turned in.' but even then the building was a mass of flames, and by the time the de partment made the long run the roof had fallen. So rapidly did the flames sweep through the building that many of ihe employes lost their coats, hats and bi cycles, iu their hurry to escape from the building. Efforts were directed to saving the papers, hies, furniture, etc., from the office and most of it was got ten out aud carried to a place of safety. The office was situated northeast of the plant and the wind which was blowiug strongly at the time carried the flames to this structure and it soon disap peared. Two C. & N. W. and one C. M. & St. P. cars, standing on a siding uear the plant and loaded with manu factured stock, were consumed. Four warehouses, all tilled with manufac tured stock, nails, etc., were wiped out. There was more or less sawdust around the plant and the tire crept through this and spread all aloug the river bank, killiug many of the large trees aud burning fiercely iu the old sawdust and slab heaps. The company was for unate in one respect. Recently several improvements were made, among them the building of a tire wall between the engine room and the plant, ibis was constructed of con crete blocks and to this is due the sav ing of the engines and boilers. The w all today shows that it withstood the tierce fire well. In some places the blocks are pulled apart from contrac tion aud a few are defaced. Recently anew Corliss eDgine of 350 horse power with enormous drive wheel was placed in the engine room. This was all ready to be connected with the boilers, aud had it been destroyed the loss would have been much greater. Every hydrant iu the yards aud every foot of hose in the engine bouse was brought into play and the tire steamer put into action, still the water had ap parently little effect on the burning mass. A oucket brigade also worked like beavers. The lumber piles were situated some distance from the plant and it was fortunate that they were. The heat was so intense that some of them caught fire aud were badly scorched. The firemen worked until early this morning and the fire is still burning and perhaps will continue to burn for several days. The cause of the fire is attributed to a shaft box run niug hot. The loss of this plant is a severe blow to the industrial iuterests of the city. It employed 150 men both summer aud winter aud paid monthly $5,000 in wages. It had a capacity for turning out three car loads of manufactured stock daily and consumed a great amount of lumber annually. It was built iu 1892 by Messrs. W. B. Scbollield, C. S. Turner, C. V. Bardeen, IS. M. Quaw and others, and later fell into the control of the two former, who bought out the others. Since the above date a number of additions had been built un til it covered quite an area of ground. The direct loss to the owners will reach over $50,000. They carried in surance. W hether it will be n built or not cannot be stated at this time. It would Be impossible to get new machinery before six months, as all machine shops are crowded with orders. The company has a large stock of lum ber on band and also a stock in Eau Claire which was being shipped here. The firm’s box factory in the above city was destroyed by tire on Eeb. 15 last. At present the company has orders enough on band to keep a factory of the size of the Wausau institution running for a year. It was an uufortuuate thing that the factory was destroyed at this time. For the past four weeks the box manu facturers of the city have been having a little labor disturbance, and when the fire broke out yesterday afternoon idle tongues started a story to the effect that the strikers might be re sponsible for it. There was abso lutely no foundation for the story. There have been no strikers on the grounds for several days aud we don’t believe there is anyone iu Wausau with malice iu enough in his heart to set such a plant on tire. Messrs. Turner and Scholtield are two of our best citi zens aud even their ex-employes out ou strike sympathize with them iu their loss. A noticeable fact yesterday may Lave something to do in the future with Wausau’s industrial growth unless con ditions are changed. It was proven that our water service is not adequate to cope with a large tire on the outskirts of the city. There was hardly pressure HQOUgh to throw a stream tifty feet and it is discouraging for tiremen to work under such conditions. It is true the plant was situated in a remote section of the eity, but that ia no excuse. In laying water maius to the outlying districts the city has always fol lowed a parsimonious policy. Mann facturers have even paid part of the expense to get water service and fire alarm boxes, and in so doing have oftentimes bought a gold brick. If property owners must pay the expense of tire protection, let them have good service. It was not the fault of the supply of water yesterday. The drive well system was eqaul to the occasion, but it was the pressure. The mains were too small to car'y the pressure from the pumps. Had the wind been from the south or east yesterday that entire section of town and the lumber piles would have been destroyed. Manufactures, when they learn of these conditions, will hesitate about locating here. Wausau has nearly always prided itself on an excellent water ser vice, but there ave been several ex periences in the past which do not justi fy any claims for the system as a fire protection, i. e., in the outlying dis tricts. Again there should be another engine house in the northern section, as was advocated by several council men a few years ago. The fire department of Wausau is as efficient as any in the state, but it is obliged to cover too much territory. Band concerts and a few other unnecessary things might be dispensed with and a suitable engine house, even if small, be erected w here it will be of the most service. BOY DROWNED. aledora, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Duquette, who reside at 315 Elm street, was drowned in Big Rib river Sunday afternoon. There were a great many people in the vicinity at the time, pic nicing, yet only a few companions of the boy witnessed the accident. The boy, with three other lads 6f about his own age, were in bathing aud had amused themselves in this w ay for some time when the other boys started across the river. Young Duquette also at tempted to wade the river, but iu so doing be got into deep water and as he could not swim, he sank to the bottom. The other boys either couid not swim or else they were overcome with fear, at least they could not give him any assistance. As soon as they recovered from their fear they hastened away for help and soon men begau draggiug the river. At about the supper hour the body was recovered and removed to the pareuts’ home. The boy was sixteen years of age. The funeral will be held tomorrow. R. R. OFFICIALS HERE. President Marvin Hughitt of the O. & N. W. Ry., together with Supt.
