Currier, who has rooms at The Randall, noticed sparks of fire coming out of the rear window of Hall & Cheney's drug store and gave an alarm. Gen H. M. Gordon rang the fire alarm bell until he became tired out and was spelled by Percy Stone. Two traveling men stopping at The Ran dall F. M. Nash and Joe Bowles- were among the first appearing on the scene, the former with a chemi cal hand fire grenade, which he slung into the rear window, where the real fire was. The hose cart soon put in an appearance, Air. Bowies, wno is an ex-fireman, assisting at thenozzlp, No large amount ot water was thrown, consequently the building was not flooded. The origin of the fire is somewhat of a mystery, but it is plain that the blaze Btarted at or near the switch board of the Citizen's Telephone line, this store being the central station There are many theories expressed, some onu of which may be right, the most plausible one is that telephone and electric light wires come in con tact. The store was closed a t a com paratively early hour, and probably owing to every air inlet and exit be ing tightly closed can be attributed the safetv of the block, coupled with its early discovery and the efficient work done by the improvised tire department and those assisting. It was a smouldering fire, which prob ably accounts lor tne smoke pene trating every one of the four stores on the ground floor as well as to the rooms above in the Bhort space of time from the closing up time until the blaze was extinguished. The damage done is extensive and will be hard to compute in dollars and cents just at present. The Citi zen's Telephone's loss is complete as regards its Btation fixtures. The building, which was erected by the late Dr. E. J. Hall, was tlegantiy fin ished in hazel wood on both walls and ceiling, and the furnishings were of a quality to match. The interior woodwork now presents a charred and blistered appearahep, and every plate glass window is cracked. The stock, belonging to nail & Che ney, is much damaged; how much remains to be seen. There was an Insurance of $5000 on the building anrj $4,uou on the stock, wnicn is being adjusted. The Hall & Cheney stock has been moved to the Darling Block until the old store can be made as good as it was before, and the Citizen's Tele phone folks have fitted up a tem porary central station in C. H. A. Stafford's office, over J. S. Banister's store. Those who responded to the fire alarm call are entitled to praise. There were but few to drag along the heavy hose cart through the dark and muddy streets with rain falling in torrents, but they got there just the samr pluck win? even in temporary expedients. Fire Chief G. W. Doty and his assistants, A. J. Smith and W.M. Clark, were prompt ly on band and saved much destruc tion or property, as tnere was a strong disposition to break into threatened districts to see what the danger was.
