FIRE CONSUMES DRY GOODS
Syndicate Trading- .Company's Loss
Total and Other Firms Sorter
One of the most serious fires which has
visited this city for some time broke out
about 11 o'clock last night In the store of
the Syndicate Trading company In the
Be'no-Shugart block, running from Main
to Pearl streets. The Arm carries a stock
of 'dry goods estimated In value at from
$6,000 to $10,000, and this was practically
entirely consumed. "What was not burned
waa ruined by water and smoke, but little
of It. however, escaping the flames. When
the fire was first discovered It had gained
great headway and by the time the fire
men arrived the entire Interior of the
store waa ahlase. The fire Itself was con
fined to this one store, but water and
smoke did considerable damage to stocks
In adjoining stores.
Culver & Woodbury, dry goods, to the
south, occupy a large double store, like
the one where the fire originated, running
through from Main to Pearl streets. The
stock on the main floor Is damaged by
smoke and that In the basement by smoke
and water. Just how much their damage
waa the firm was not prepared to state
last night, . but It Is fully covered by In
surance. To the north, Pearson Bros., dealers In
draperies and upholstering goods, suffered
from smoke. Their ' stock Is valued at
about $2,000 and most of the goods are
Still further to the north the wholesale
grocery stock of Stewart Bros, on the sec
ond floor of their building Is damaged by
The loss on the building will not be great.
With 'the exception of the Syndicate
Trading company It Is stated the losses are
fully covered by Insurance. What 'the In
surance on this stock amounts to could
not be ascertained last night, as the man
ager, James Shelley, could not be found.
He waa seen about the city tarller In the
evening,' but could not be located later.
Until he Is seen It will not bo known defi
nitely what was the value of the stock or
the amount of Insurance carried. None of
the employes of the company seen last
evening was willing to venture an opinion
on either point, but those familiar with the
stock placed its value all the way from
$3,000 ' to $10,000.
No one Is able to state how the fire
started. When first seen it had gained great
headway and appeared to have made the
most progress on the Pearl street side of
the main floor. The firm has Its headquar
tervln Kansas City and opend for bunl
ness In this city about one year ago. 'It
has done at least a fairly good business
during most. If not all, of the time.

' (From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Jan. 18. (Special.) The
republican primary election was held to
day. It was quieter than anticipated and
yet had feature of Interest. The fight
was chiefly for nomination of a republican
candidate for mayor, but there waa also
a contest for aldermen In each one of the
seven wards, and for city assessor. The
compact to have a harmonious primary
with only one set of judges wss kept,
though on the opening of the polls the
compact came near being broken and chaoa
precipitated by action at one precinct.
One of the Judges was not on hand
promptly, and the city committee filled the
vacancy by placing on a man which would
give the full control tn that ward JLp the
Mattern men. Aa that was the city hall
precinct and a close one, there waa trouble
until a change was made. Other than this
the day was quiet, save that It more nearly
resembled a national election than a local
fight, so Intense was the seal of the parti
sans. The opposing candidate for fnayor were
George W. Mattern and John MacVlcar.

Unstained a Don; Ordinance.
-,The Iowa supreme eourt today rendered
a decision sustaining a dog ordinance 'in
the town of Sibley. A man had been ar
rested and fined for allowing two dogs to
run at large unmuzsled In the town. The
district court had released the man on the
theory that the laws of the state do not
authorize any such measure to prevent
dogs running at large and that the only
remedy for dogs running at large Is to
provide for killing them. The supreme
court take the opposite view and declares
that a jlown.or city may fine the owner
of dogs that are allowed to run at large
and the ordinance was therefore legal. '

Reporter Ar Barred.
The Ministerial association at Its meeting
this morning decided that reporter will be
barred In the future. The feeling was ex
pressed by several that the mind of the
reporter was not able to compass ths great
question that they were In the habit of
discussing and that he could not therefore
hope to get a correct report for hia respect
ive publication. Above this waa th
thought that the public had no right to a
glimpse of the mltilster outside of the
pulpit and while on, his ministerial rounds,
and that the work of the association waa
not in any way the property of the public
' The discussion over the measure waa
long, but waa unanimous, and but on man.
