The question of constructing a dam
across the Connecticut river and of erect
ing an electric power plant for the purpose
of furnishing power, light and heat for the
manufactories is again Interesting Brattle
boro capitalists. The subject has been se
riously considered of lato by a number of
citizens who deem the schemo a feasible
one and who propose to bring the matter
to a neaa as soon as possible. The matter
has previously been agitated, but the pro
ject had to be abandoned because of certain
obstacles which are entirely obviated in
the present scheme. If the plans of the
promoters of the scheme materialize the
result will, without a doubt, be a great ben
ut to the town of Brattleboro. Several
years ago the late ex-Gov. Fuller, Gen. Es
tey. Col. Ilooker. Mr. Crowcll. J. L. Mar
tin and others believed that the power of
the Connecticut river could be utilized for
manufacturing purposes and expended
about $1500 in having surveys and esti
mates made with a view to bulldlne a dam
across the river some distance north of the
village and conveying the power to the vil
lage by means of an aqueduct. The ex
pense of such an undertaking was so large
mai 11 was given up lor tne time as im
practicable. Recent developments and dis
coveries In the applying of electrical force,
however, make it apparent that it would
fee a feasible ana a paying project to con
struct a dam across the river near the
Hastings rapids just this side of the sus
pension bridge, two miles or so above the
village, and to build a power plant near
mere ana conauct tne electricity to the vil
lage by means of a wire. It is tarried
through New York state from Niagara
vans in mis way, me matter is in an un
developed state, but it is probable that
meeting of those Interested in the move
ment will be held in a very few days for
the purpose of discussing its various phases.
An enterprise like this would be able to
furnish several times the amount of nower
necessary to turn every wheel in Ifrattle
boro at the present time and, as ity would
greatly' reduce the present cost of power
and do away with the use of coal And wood
would seem to give greater inducements
for manufactories to locate In,' town than
could be offered in any other

Still another disastrous flro swept this
village In tho early hours of Tuesday
morning, destroying tin storo building
owned by S. II, Sherman of Drattleboro
and occupied by D. M. Adams; tho store
and dwelling houso of F. II. Ober; the
dwelling house of II. W. Sanders; and the
uray block, occupied as a tenement House.
Tho flro started at 3:30 In a pile of kind
ling wood just outside the shed of the
Ober building. It was first seen by F. L.
Lowe, clerk for B. M. Adams, who Had a
room In tho tenement over the store.
Lowe was awakened by tho crackling
sound of thn fire. His first thought was
that a wagon was passing, and that it was
time for him to get up to open the store.
lie went into a room back of nts sleeping
room, where he saw the tire, and at onco
gave the alarm. Ho shouted first to the
Adams family, and then to the Ober fam
ily, then ran out to still further arouse me
Obers, and to find a key to have the church
bell rung. Somo 15 or 20 minutes elapsed
before a general alarm could bo given, and
by that time the fire had gained such head
way that it could not be stopped wim me
appliances at hand. When first seen a fow
men with palls of water could nave put, 11
out. It burned so rapidly that when three
young women, students of Leland and
Gray seminary, who had rooms and board
ed themselves In the third story of the
Ober house, were aroused, the lire had
burst Into the room used as a Kitciien, and
they hurried down the stairway leaving
most of their clfects. Tlieso stuuenis
were Misses Nobbs of Jamaica, Whlto of
Brookline, and Cheney of Newfane.
From tho Ober house tho lira spread
west to the Sanders house, and thence to
the Gray block. At tho same time it went
east to tho Adams store. The photograph
studio of H. W. Bailey, standing between
Nelson Wlnslow's barn and the Moddard
house, was torn down to stop the spread of
the fire in that direction. F. H. Ober's
barn was burned. Nelson Wlnslow's barn,
who-e tho fire was stopped on that side,
was scorched, but was saved by Its Iron
roof. At the other side of the burned dis
trict the small building erected for C. C.
Taft since his buildings wero burned a few
weeks ago, was damaged somewhat.
The Sherman building was occupied uy
B. M. Adams as a store on the lower fioor,
and the two tenements on tho upper floor
were occupied by the Adams family. I his
building was erected on the site of the
"old corner store" by K. .1. Knapp alter
the great fire of Nov. 12, 1880. The Ober
building was occupied by Mr. Ober on the
lower Hour as a tlnshop and hardware
store, and by Miss Ada E. Barber as a
drug store. The upper part was the dwell
ing of the Ober family. 1 lie Sanders
house was occupied by II. W. Sanders
down stairs, and by J. M. Campbell up
stairs. Tho Gray block was owned by
Nelson Winslow and I). K. Boutell. It
was occupied by the families of Nelson
Winslow, E. W. Phillips, R. D. Phillips
and II. O. Swealt.
If plenty of water had been available the
Gray block could have been saved. The
fire was under control at 0:30, all this
properly being destroyed In just -ibout the
same length of time that It took to burn
down the (J. C. Taft building only live
weeks ago. The night was still, fortu
nately, but the flames created a strong but
steady draught. The total loss is estlmat
ed at $20,000. with Insurance of $11,850.

The origin of tho fire Is uncertain, and
it seems almost impossible that it should
have started where It did unless by the act
of an incendiary.

tenement under the Masonic hall, ran to

quarters of a mile away, and aroused him,

C. C. Taft cleared his temporary build
ing and also removed the live stock, etc.,
from ins bam.
Notwithstanding the disastrous wav hi
which this village has suffered from fires
In the past ten years it has no public fire
apparatus. The only means of fighting the
fire aro palls of water from domestic
sources and a few hand pumps. The
movement started two years ago to estab
lish a public system of water works was
never carried out.
A report gained circulation. In Towns
hend and elsewhere, that the pipe which
conveys water to a largo tank at (J. U,
Taft's had been plugged, stopping the flow
01 water mis tank being one of tne main
sources of supply for those fighting the
Ute. This was not true. It was found
that the water had stopped running
through the pipe, but Mr. Taft thinks
there was no malicious action to cause It.
In the end of the pipe, at the tank, was a
plug with a natch o- a groove put in it to
graduate the flow cf water. This plug
nad been pulled out, but It was probably
done by some one who thought to get more
water by tho move. Tho removal of the
plug probably let air into the pipe and
stopped the water.
The greater portion of the goods was
removed from the Adams, Barber and Ober
stores, out they are so mixed up that their
value can hardly be told. Adams removed
his goods to the town hall. Ober carried
his to his father's. Miss Barber's are at F.
The families burned out found shelter as
follows: D. M, Adams's family at Dr. A.
U. Nash's; F, U. Ober's family at O. O,
Ober's; H. W. Sanders's family at H. T,
and 0. H. Evans's; J. M. Campbell at F.

is. w. runups at Reuben Phillips's; u u
Phillips at M. M. Martin's; H. O. Sweatt
at Mrs. underwood's.
Several people beard a team during the
night come down from the north and oth
era heard a team going south which ap
peared to be urged to Its utmost capacity,

Ueorgo G. Saxe, managing partner of
tho firm of Estey & Saxe, Now York city,
died very suddenly at Madison, N. J., last
Tuesday morning while on his way to the
station to tako the train for Now York.
Mr. Saxo has been In falling health for a
number of years, and has at times suffered
from sevcro pain In tho head, and although
generally able to attend to business, has
been forced at times to absent himself on
account of his health. Last spring he spent
some weeks in Dakota visiting his sou,
aud returned very much improved In health.
With the exception of E. M. Bruce, the
well-known representative and partner In
Philadelphia, Mr. Saxo was tho oldest rep

nearly 40 years.
In his early manhood he entered the min
istry nf tho Methodist church. Ills pastor
ates (the closing one In Troy, N. Y.,) were
attended with marked success, but on ac
count of throat trouble ho was obtlgcd to
relinquish tils chosen work, and at about
that time ho began tho sale of Estey melo
deons In a third-story wareroora In New
York city. Afterward ho took J. U. Rob
ertson as a partner, and this partnership
continued until a few years ago when Mr.
Robertson retired and the Kstey Organ
company assumed his Interest In the busi
ness. For the last few years Mr. Saxe's
home has been In Madison, N. J , and the
atmosphere of that college town has been
particularly congenial to a man of his cult
ure and tastes.
Mr. Saxe was a native of Hlghgate,
Franklin county, this state. For many
years his brother (who for a short time was
consul at St. Johns, Quebec,) lived In Al-
uurgn. Mr. saxe s wife anl two sous,
