FOR ONE WEEK,
I ffitSE MOM FOR SPEilfJG GOODS!
Last night Palatka was t kited by flits
of (apposed incendiary orrrjin. The
hop belonging to If r. A. L. Jane,
builder of water tanks, and Mr. 1L II.
DsJtoa's wood splitting factory at the
head of Hirer street, were entirely con
sumed. The fire started at about tan
minntea past 11 o'clock and had pt digress
ed ao far by the time it was diacoTered
that it waa impossible to save the build
ing from destruction. Some ten minutes
elapsed before a general alarm could be
given. Men stood and yelled time and
again bat apparently to no avail our
fire bell, do we hear somebody say? Ob,
yes, it rang; after a while, and, then, so
faint'y that it is doubtful whether a
third of our citizens heard it.
A large crowd had congregated before
any of the Fire Department had shown
up, and gaining entrance to the ware
house, the Jacksonville, Tampa and Kef
West Railway hose had a good stream
playing upon the surrounding buildings
as the West End hose were unrolling
their hose. The North End came in
next, followed by the Putnam Alert,
and hv this tim throo etr fnnr nnwmrfnl

below were mostly pitch pine and cy
press woods, the fire becarne so intensely
hot that it was quite beyond human en
durance to get within a serviceable dis

Mr. Dalton, who , at the - time of the
alarm was upon Lemon street, rushed
quickly to the office, which stood a little
to the rear of the burning structure, and
braving the awful beat, attempted to get
at his books, but was finally forced to
rewrn. His office, however, was saved.
From Mr. Dalton a reporter of Thk
Palatka News learned that a horse and
a mule were enwrapped in flames and
burned to death long before he arrived
at the scene, anl that only a few days
since he had given 300 for the former.
Mr. Dalton states that in roughly esti
mating his loss he places it in the neigh
bor hoed of $2,000, with an insurance of
Mr. Jones at the time of this writing
is out of the city, having left on the 6
o'clock train yesterday afternoon for
Sanford, consequently his loss cannot
be chronicled as yet. We are informed,
however, that he had just completed
several new tanks, and that they also
" were destroyed.
The hydrants were put to an excellent
test and there is now no room to criti
cise the inefficiency of the Palatka
Water Works they did welL Within
one hour after starting, the fire was ex
tinguished and the West End Hose was
left to play over the reins and a large
wood pile which was still burning in the
center. The fire was put out entirely
by the use of the hydrants.
Scarcely half an hour passed after the
greater part of the crowd of spectators
had dispersed when Mr. Hill, clerk
at Henia PetevBianiCs, in look
ing around the neighboring build
ings of the store to see that all
was as it should be, discovered a bright
light which he at first took to be a light
- in the dwelling of Dr. Ames, some dis
tance from the Peermnn grocery store,
but upon closer examination he found
it to be a burst of flames. He im
mediately gave an alarm and with the
help of several persons who were pass
ing by succeeded in putting it out. In
vestigation shows that a handkerchief
and shavings had been so placed between
the walls buck of the barber shop that it
would soon rush up stairs and envelope
the entire building and then the block.
The handkerchief or rag bad seemingly
been satuated with oil and then stuffed
up under the weather board inf. No
shavings were about the place when the
store was closed. Mr. Hill, with the aid
of Mr. Cross, put the fire out and at the
same time awakening Mr. Lockwood,
who lives in the second story.
