Graiit, Sherman, Sheridan
and Custer Were Guests
of Bismarck House.
Eisttiarck. N. T„ Oct. 28:—Fire de
partment officials were still endeavor
ing today to determine the cause of
the explosion which preceded the Ore,
here early yesterday, in
Northwest hotel and q. garage con
taining 50 automobiles were destroy
ed, with loss of $200,000.
The generally accepted theory was
that gasoline in the Independent gar
age became ignited and exploded with
terrific force, scattering the burning
fuel through the garage. Owners of
the garage, however, declared there
was little gasoline in the garage. In
cendiarism is not Buspocted.
Old Days Recalled.
Many an old timer of Bismarck to
day recounted tales of the old North
west hotel, a famous hostelry of by
gone days. It was built In 1877 as the
Sheridan house, at a time when the
Northern Pacific railroad line term
inated at Bismarck. It was the head
quarters of social life of the aristo
cratic society created by officers of the
old Seventh United States Cavalry,
when stationed at Fort Lincoln, and
many scions of wealthy eastern fam
ilies who sought adventure and for
tune in the western country.
General George A. Custer, leader of
the troops massacred in the Little Big
Horn General Terry and other sol
diers of the west were familiar figures
around the old hotel. General U. S.
Grant was a guest when the "golden
spike" driven in the Northern Pacific
railroad linked the, transcontinental
line. General Sherman and General
Sheridan had been guests there. The
name of Theodore Roosevelt had ap
peared on its register.
In 1901 the old Sheridan house
ceased its existence and moved, to its
new location at Fifth and Main
streets, was covered with brick
veneer, remodeled and made into
what -was considered a fine hostelry.
For years it. was the headquarters of
politicians of North Dakota.
Builder Was Adventurer.
Eber H. Bly, who built the old
Sheridan house, once wealthy and
known throughout the northwest as a
leading hotel man, failed in his effort
to. Increase his fortune in the new
western country. Coming to Bis
marck from the east with $250,000,
he built the Sheridan house, and also
the old headquarters hotels at Fargo,
N, D., and Brainerd, Minn. The latter
two burned many years ago.
Bly and eastern associates conceiv-
appiy up nonius.
