FAIR GROUND FIRE
Two Insurance Companies Re
fuse to Honor Policies, Sus
picion Surrounding Blaze.
MOOMAW IS UNDER PROBE

Articles Tabbed" "Burned"'
Found In His Office.
Suspicious circumstances surrounding
the recent fire at the Exposition
grounds, which endangered the lives
of several persons and destroyed prop
erty, tabbed at that time as valued at
140,000, were brought to light yester
day. Constable Lou Wagner and his chief
deputy, William Kiernan, it Is said,
have unearthed evidence which the
Jifltriot Attorney deems sufficient to
warrant stringent investigation, and a
complaint alleging arson may ensue.
Grave charges, say the investigators,
overhang Lewis H. Moomaw, manager
of the World Kilm Manufacturing Com
pany. In the office of that concern the
blaze originated. Moomaw has admit
ted that he swore falsely in making a
list of articles said, by him to have
been destroyed -by flames. Many arti
cles listed as burned, says Constable
Wagner, Were stored two days before
the fire in the Henry building, where
search brought them to light yester
- Insurance Companies Balk. '
The Shawnee Insurance Company and
the German-American Insurance Com
pany, as a result of the disclosures, have
refused to honor the moving picture
company's policies, and it is rumored
the policies will be surrendered and
claims forteited to avoid the courts.
This -action, however, says Deputy Dis
trict Attorney Fltzge.ald, will not de
ter him from investigating the fire. If
the evidence will not make an arson
charge tenable, says Attorney Fitzger
ald, a complaint alleging perjury may
There were two insurance policies
carried on the belongings of the film
company, aggregating $3000. One for
$2000 Is with the Shawnee Insurance
Company and the other, for $1000. is
borne by the German -Americcn Insur
ance Company. These policies were ob
tained by Morgan & Robb. When T. C.
Sliackland, an adjuster, investigated
the claims against the two insurance
companies he reauired Moomaw to '
swear to the list of articles on which
the claims are based. The list included
a complete outllt of office furniture
an4 considerable paraphernalia used in
the manufacture of moving picture
lilms. teonie of these articles, says Con
stable Wagner, were found in Moo
maw's office In the Henry building,
and are held as evidence.
Shortly after the tire, J. F. Shea, a
plumber at Second and Ankeny streets,
obtained Judgment against the film
company for $230.60 for plumbing. This
was followed by another for $49, al
lowed K. K. Karlson and L. A. Craw
ford, mechanics, for work done.
Inability of the Constable to find
anything belonging to the company to
seize to satisfy these judgments led
to yesterday's disclosure. Moomaw was
followed to the Henry building and
served with attachment papers.
lolicles Are Attached.
In Miiomaw's office the two insur
nnce policies were found and were made
part of the attached property. Moomaw
then satisfied the judgments . saying the
propertv. which had been seized was his
own personal property, not that of the
company, and that the company would
refund the payments made by him.
Until the attachments were paid
Moomaw wa detained in Constable
Wagner's office and subjected to rigid
inquiry about his affidavit and the cir
cumstances surrounding the lire. He ad
mitted he had made the affidavit know
ing that nome of the articles included
iiad not been burned but denied that he
had set fire to the building.
Witness. Constable Wagner saye, told
him that Moomaw, after making a great
fus3 about sounding the lire alarm, ran
to the fire alarm-box and after opening
the door returned to the scene of the
tvlaze without pulling the alarm lever.
This i5 denied by Moomaw. The fire
occurred in the room adjoining the apart
ment where Moomaw slept. Moomaw
nays he was up until after midnight but
that he cannot account for the fire. So
far as learned there was nothing in the
room to start a blaze. It was lighted by
a lamp which, iys Moomaw, was in his
eleeping-room the time of the fire. No
electric wires or heating stove were in
the room where the blaze originated.
Directly above Momaw's rooms were
the apartments of Miss Florence Curry
and Miss M. Osbourne, who reached
safety after a narrow escape. The pro
prietor of a nearby restaurant and all
other witnesses of the Are and the in
cident following are being questioned bv
Deputy IMstrict Attorney Fitzgerald.
Moomaw is the eon of D. L. Moomaw,
former postmaster of Baker City, and one
of the best-known politicians jn Kastern
Oregon. He says he does not' own any
of the -stock In the World Film Manu
facturing Company but that he is merely
employed as the manager of the concern,
the owners being Mike Hoff and Miles
I-iee, of Baker City, and Moomaw, Sr.
