Ing Had Large Quantity of Coal Stored There Origin of Blaae a Mystery Discovered Soon After 10 O'clock Last Night Lack of Wind Prevents Serious Conflagration. By a fire that broke out shortly after 10 o"elock last night the old Lemp brewery building at the corner of Alta and Vincent streets was de stroyed with a large quantity of coal stored therein. The building was tho property of W. S. Byers, while the coal belonged to W. C. Mlnnls. The loss will be covered by Insur ance. How the fire In the old brewery started Is a mystery and It may have been the work of an Incendiary though the general supposition Is that it was lighted by the careless dropping of a lighted match by some one passing or by a hobo. Within a few moments after the fire was discovered the building was a mars of flames and the sky Illumi nated for many blocks around. The alarm was first given by Ben Bur roughs and Royal Sawtclle and east end and central companies were call ed out the east enders arriving first. They responded gulckly ?,nJ by torli fng several streams on the burning warehouse quenched the blase be fore It could spread to any of the ad joining property. However, the old building was so badly damaged that it Is rendered worthless. Owing to the location of the fire It was feared for a time that a serious confragratlon might ensue. The Oregon lumber yard Is located Just across the street to the west, while the Byers warehouses and mill were right adjoining the fire. Had a strong wind been blowing at the time the flames would have been dlflcult to control. In early days the structure was used as a brewery store room but for many years has been utilized aa a ware house. For a time It was rented by the Oregon lumber yard, but that concern has not used It for two years. At the time of the fire It contained coal belonging to W. C. Mlnnls and the only loss sustained by Mr. Byers was that of the building Itself. MURRAY ADMITS HE HELPED ROB SALOON.
