OVER $25,000
Cause of Blaze Not
Standard Woodenware Company 8u«.
tain* Heavy Loss Through the
Third Big Fire in Two
Damage estimated at over 126,000
was done by fire of unknown origin at
the broom manufacturing plant of the
Standard Woodenware company, 2M
South 1..0S Angelei stroot, at n;l>> last
night. The lire was conflni d to the
small building in which it started. rh(
building was filled with valuable ma
chinery for the manufacture of brooms
and a large quantity of broom straw.
The loss is fully covered by Insurance.
The fire was ilrnt seen by patrolmen
•who were passing in the patrol wagotl.
An alarm was turned in and within a
few minutes a second alarm followed.
The department arrived on the scene
within a few minutes and after a great
deal of work succeeded In gaining con
trol of tho flames.
The fire started In the small building
adjoining the main Store of the firm.
There Is a thick fire wall between the
buildings and the door through it was
closed at the time. Had this door been
open it is probable the entire building
would have been destroyed and the
loss reach half a million. As it was
the fire was kept confined to the build
ing In which it started.
Cause Not Knows
An investigation was made immedi
ately after the lire by Chief Lips of the
fire department and other officers, but
it was impossible for them to learn
the cause at the time. The buildinp; la
lighted by electricity nn<\ the machin
ery is run by the same power. Ac
cording to employes the switches used
to control the power were turned off.
These switches arc in the main build-
Ing There wns no light about the
buiiding after it was locked for the
night, and the only cause that can be
assigned for the fire Is that a match
was carelessly thrown among some 01
the straw shortly before the closing
hour nnd the flames smouldered until
they caught the wooden frame work.
This is the third lire the place has
suffered. A year ago the firm sus
tained heavy losses due to a Ore said
to have been set by William Brain, a
young man who is now confined In the
insane asylum. Two years ago the
building also suffered serious damage
through a fire of unknown origin.
The officers of the Standard WOOd
enware company are: Frank Hum
phreys, president; E. Wievers, vice
president; E. J. Levy, secretary.

, Inquiry into the police affairs at the
receiving hospital will be <li layed us a
result of a rump mccl n ■ council
held after the session of Monday.
Councllmen Wri n, W 11 ici an | Lyon
had been named as the committee of
Inquiry and nt the rump meeting Pn »l
dent Pease was prevailed on to name
two inon members, Clampitt and sfon
kin. Each of the two latter is a Btrong
partlsiin of certain candidates — Yonkin
for Garrett nnd Clampitt for Quint, it
is stated.
Later it was discovered that HiU
action was illegal and President Pease
recalled the appointments.
Councilman Wren was culled out of
the city yesterday, hence the committee
cannot meet for son:,- .lays.
