FIRE AT WATERBURY, CONN., RE SULTS IN DAMAGE OF MORI THAN *3.000,000. BEST PART OF CITY GONE Fully Hundred of the Leading Busi ness Houses Wiped Out by the Con flagration and Scores of Families Rendered Homeless—Militia Compa nies Called Out and the City Practi cally Placed Under Martial Law. Waterbury, Conn.. Feb. 4.—For 10 hours flames fanned by a high wlpd held swav over the business portion of this city, causing a loss that will exceed tn.iHWi.OOo. The best business portion of the city, forming a triangle bounded on the north by Exchange place, on the west by Hank street. 011 the south bv Grand street and oa the eaxt by ifauth Main sire, was almost wijw»d out, Tlie first fire, which started In the big store of the Reid k Hughes Dry Goods company on Hank street, wa* not considered under control until about ir5.ooo.01nj worth of property had been destroyed. Then a second fire broke out in the Scovil House, th'e city's leading hotel, remodeled by th 1 late Judge R. C. Lewis a few years ago at an expense of about ITfi.etMi, and this establishment wan completely wrecked. The occupants of the hotfd were forced to seek the street in their liurht clothes. With the ringing of a second alarm the city was thrown into a panic. There was a fierce gale biowing and sparks from the burning hotel were driven in lurid showers ov« a great area. The occupants of buildings lo cated in the path of the wind prepared to leave. Although the Waterbury fire department was reinforced from near by ities it was for a time impossible to stay th«* progress of the flames. The fire burned over four acres of the city's best business section. Among the prominent buildings totally dcstioyed are the block occupied by the Ueid ti Hughes Dry Clouds cor.v I»any. the plant of the Waterbury American, the Masonic temple the Sco vil and Franklin Houses, the W. I Douglas Shoe company and the Salva tion Army Worktngmen's home. In all about leading business houses are burned out. Severe Task for Firemen. Ttnrelv have firemen brrn obliged to contend against a worse conditions than those which prevailed from fir-t to last In this disastrous conllagratio: The wind was blowing a gale and the cold was intense. It seemed at one time as though every structure in the heart of the cltv would be destroyed, but in some instances the work of th' firemen was availing. The Waterbury bank building, at the orner of Bai. find Grand strec-ts. wa? saved, although the Now Kngiand Knglneering com pany's building, but a few feet away, and the Masonic- temple, on the north side of the bank building, were consumed. During the night the mayo: was in communication with Governor McLean and the militia were called out. Companies A and O. numbering al tout l£o men. wore detailed about the lire district and are still on duty. The city i: now practically under mar tial law. The armory, the city hall, the churches and oth-r public places have bee n turned into temporary she! ters, hundreds being rendered home less. The moral effect of this fire upon Waterbury will be farreaohing. An Associated Press correspondent asked Mayor Kilduff if he would call for fl nancial aid from outside cities. The mayor said: •Waterbury. although suffering a grievous blow, will take care4 of her self, thouch extremely grateful for the expressions of- sympathy that hav-.' pot 1 red in on every side." At S: rso a. m. the entire Are depart mont was on duty, the danger being by no means passed. The Scovil Hons was still burning and adjoining build ings were 'in danger. The buildings in the track of the earlier Are are still burning. The loss by burning of the Scovil House will reach fir.o.OOO. There are rumors of incendiarism in connection with the burning of thlr. property. For a time the tire threatened to spread from the Scovil House to the city hall, but that beautiful and costly structure was saved. Debts. Father- ITow Is It you never have any money?
