Inman-Poulsen Loss Adjustment Start
cd Mill Will Have to Re-let
Some Foreign Orders.
Fire underwriters, as a result of the
disastrous blaze at the Inman-Poulsen
mill on Thursday, have renewed their
demands upon the city for more ade
quate water mains in the territory
south of Hawthorne avenue.
Two four-inch mains alone were
available to the apparatus engaged in
the fire-fighting work on Thursday.
Additional service was provided, of
course, by the fireboats.
"It was only the efficiency of the
Fire Department and the prevalence of
a strong east wind that prevented
complete loss," said Paul C. Bates, of
the firm of McCargar, Bates & Lively,
general insurance agents, yesterday.
Insurance adjusters began yesterday
to figure the losses, which, it was esti
mated last night, will approximate
- As soon as the losses are adjusted
the company will begin the- work of
rebuilding the plant. A large force of
its regular employes will be engaged
in this work.
The fire came at a most unfortunate
time for the Inman-Poulsen Company,
inasmuch as a large volume of orders
for foreign delivery had Just been re
ceived. Most of this business will
have to be transferred to other mills in
Portland. It will require about 60
days to rebuild.

tian Temperance Union president, who
told of AIlss Willard, who founded the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union
"I have talked to her so many times,
but somehow I just can't remember
anything so clearly as her marvelous
personality. No matter where she was,
she seemed to beam upon us and take
hold of everyone, so that it was a
pleasure to work with her and for her."
Sunday will be the anniversary or
Miss Willard's birthday. She was born
in Churchville, N. Y., in 1839. The
Woman's Christian Temperance Union

gestion, constipation and many of the
