GROESBECK HOUGHTON after being burned
out at the Lace House had scarcely placed the
remnant of their stock in the temporary
quarters opposite the scene ot the fire when
they had another experience At 830 Sunday
night a lot of goods were found to be en fire in
the store and an alarm was sent in The de
partment promptly responded and Chief
Stanton manipulated the chemical engine so
well that the blaze was quickly extinguished
and the loss to the goods dM not exceed f5 the
only other additional damage being a broken
pane of plate glass in the doer and it was all
covered by insurance Chief Stanton says that
the fire was undoubtedly caused by an bver
heated stove which stood In close proximity to
some fabrics Tho watchman was inclined to
think that a spark of carbon from an electric
light dropped on the covering and caused the
fire but those who were on the scene first are
I satisfied that i all resulted from the stove
Corinne comes to Salt Lake with a
much better all around show than that
which she presented last year it is a
larger company the girls are prettier the
men are cleverer the costumes brighter
the scenery more brilliant and the chorus
much stronger and more tuneful than ever
before The chorus indeed is the strong
feature of the organization both as regards
numbers voices and good looks Many a
traveling opera company would be proud
of such a chorus as that which Corinne has
In the little lady who heads the com
pany we see no particular change Off
the stage she is fortunate in being tho
daughter of that female Nestor of mana
gers Mrs Jennie Kimball one of the
shrewdest and wealthiest of proprietors in
the profession We say frankly that in
our opinion if Miss Corinne were the
daughter of any one else her fame would
be less loudly trumpeted than it is
today She Is a merry little body
who is never quiet and who is
given some beautiful changes of
gown She is a fair singernot an excel
lent one She seems to love dancing above
everything else on earth but wo have had
manydancers who are better She is not
what would be called a clever actressin
short though she is a pleasant hardwork i
ing little body there is nothing about her
at all out of the ordinary and we feel
rather a surprise than otherwise to see her
at the head of so strong an organization
She reminds us more than anything else of
a smart child who hu been taught the
tricks of her elders b fore she know what
the tricks meant to express She caught
the fancy of the galleries last night and
was accorded many encores Of the good
features of the support n is sufficient to
say that Mr Dyllyn has a good baritone
voice and that his Toreador song was
stormily encored but Mr Dyllyn hurts
himself by his swaggering selfconscious
ness Mr Charles Postello as Carmans I
rival and the funny man of the smugglers
wereextremely hilarious Theother parts
were in good hands and the applause for
the singing especially was frequent and
prolonged Tonight the renowned guitar
soloist Arling Schaeffer whose compo
sitions for guitar and mandolin are so
wellknown and who is traveling as in
structor on the mandolin to Corinne will

Gas was struck in well No 4 at LakeShore
Shore at 8 oclock last night
Thewell in its pressure and volume
fully came up to the most extravagant ex
pectatations I is really a wonderful
welso says Major Doxin who is admit
tedly an authority
The event had been anticipated on Sun
day and all day yesterday and in the after
noon the drillers knew by the indications
that the gas was not far away from the
point ol the drill i
Word was sent to the city that i anyone
wanted to see the well come in he wsuld
have to get to Lake Shore in a hurry
A number of people did want to see the
well came in among them Major Doxie H
L Driver J F Woodman and D number
others who started for Lake Shore on the
first train How the well acted when the
gas strata was penetrated by the drill can
best be described in the language of Major
Doxie who says
Wo went to the well from the train
where we found the workmen had worked
themselves up to the highest pitch of ex
citement Every few moments the bottom
of the well would be in the
the water bubbling and great quantities of
air being emitted from the pipe
The work was being done with the
greatest cautionthe workmen had had ex
perience with the other wells which they
did not forget Tho drill was not permitted
to get very far ahead of the pipe which
was kept driven close down to the bottom
of the hole
While the drill was working there came
a noise that could not be misunderstood
The overlying shale had been passed
through and the sandstone in which the
gas is found was penetrated There was a
roar like the escaping of steam from a hun
dred engines The workmen retired to a
place of safety with more haste than dig
nity Their discretion was timely as the I
drilling tools weighing 1500 pounds were
sixty feet in the air
Then the power and pressure of the
well began to manifest itself Pieces of
rock weighing as much as ten pounds were
thrown 200 feet high
Then you were pleased majorl
I was more than that I was delighted
I satisfied me beyond a question that one
of the greatest natural gas fields in the
world existed in this valley Thats what
I think and thats what I know
Nothing can exceed the satisfaction with
which this strike is regarded The news
was sent in town where it circulated on
hotels the streets and in the corridors of the
Messrs Doxie Woodman and Driver
were seen after they returned to the city
when the first named said The pressure
was probably about one hundred and fifty
poundsor nearly the same as Nos 12
and 3 and the well would yield from
twelve to twenty million feat of gas per
day The four wells now opened would
supply all the gas needed for domestic use
In this city for a long time to come When
asked what effect the striking of gas in this
well would have on laying pipe to the city
Major Doxie said it would have the effect
of giving an impulse to that work which
would be commenced within thirty days at
the farthest and the mains would all be in
by September
The striking of gas in this well does not
mean the cessation of operations at Lake
Shore It is the intention to
just as rapidly as pcssible The intention
at present is to start the next well at a
point threequarters of a mile nearer the
city than well No4 Should that one
meet with the same good fortune as the
others the field will be prospected this
way until the limit of the gas producing
area is reached In case well No5 which
will be started in a few days is a dry one
it will then be known that the southern
limit of the belt has been reached or there
will be strong probabilities of it
A large party will go out to see the well
at 1025 oclock today and arrangements
will be made for excursions and a fine
illumination for some night within the next
commenced South and work on these has already been 1

That Sale Lake city is attracting not

far superior to any now established on the

Anybody who knows anything about the
proposed route and about the immense
crowds that Garfield Beach is unable each

preciate that the now road will ba a paying

way ere the leaves begin to turn Mass
meetings have been held and committees

vale and the entire country south of that
rich mineral district seem determined that
the road must be extended i liberal offern

vale will naturally add to the big business
