Oregon. FIRE STATISTICS. Statistics, recently gathered, as to fires in collcgo buildings, show the number of these fires to bo surpris ingly large, and the result may be an advance in the rate by Insurance companies. "Insurance Engineer ing" devotes its entire May issue 'to an analysis of conditions in schools and colleges. It received reports from 322 institutions in reply to a list of questions. "We learn the les son from the colleges and universi ties," writes the editor, "that pre cautions against fire havo been neg lected generally." Acording to a compilation made for Are underwriters, 784 flres in col lege buildings in the United States in eighteen years caused a loss of 10,500,000, besides several human lives. Tho average money loss ex ceeded $13,000. Prominent underwriters were asked by "Insurance Engineering" to give opinions upon the average college building as a "risk." Nearly all agreed that It was a poor risk. "There can bo no question," said one underwriter, "as to tho unprofitable ness of this class, especially the dor mitories." Another said: "For the Last fifteen years this department of tho company shows a loss and ex pense experience of 100 por cent on colleges and schools." Summing up his opinion an under writer in one of tho big Insurance companies says: "College buildings should all bo of fireproof construction hollow brick interior walls and floors, iron or stone stairways, and equipped with Bomo approved flro extinguishers." F. W. Fltzpatrlck, secretary of tho International Society of Building In spectors, says: I "In no case is fireproof construc tion more necessary than in the case of college dormitories. Liko hotels, they should bo absolutely fireproof. It is a great deal more economical, in the long run, to put up a build ing that won't burn than to main tain an elaborate fire-fighting sor vlco especially as the lutter often proves useless. The best way to stop college flres is to use no wood in tho structural parts of buildings. Most modorn dormitories now are stone or brick on tho outsldo; the Inside should bo just as fireproof. The ordinary brick building, with wood inside, is easy prey for tho flames. But hollow terra cotta blocks, an inexpensive material, mako floors and partitions unburn able." Disastrous fires within tho Inst year or so have emphasized tho need of better internor construction to protect tho life of students. Tho burning of the main building at Dartmouth College Is still fresh in the public memory. Last December the Chi Psl Fra ternity House at Cornell University caught flro in the night, and three students were burned to death. In the attempt to save them three vol unteer firemen also perished; five students were Injured and the prop rty lost was $300,000 In Montreal, Canada, on Feb ruary 30, the cry of "Fire!" was raised in Hochelaga School while it was In session. Tho only stair way .four feet wide, was made im passable by smoke. The kindergar ten teacher on the second floor stayed In the building to help her pupils. She and nine of the chil dren lost their lives. Two brick buildings of the Roman Catholic Seminary at Mnrlevllle, Canada, were destroyed in the same month by a Are that burned for ten hours. A seven-story brick building of tho St. Stanislaus School in Chicago was practically destroyed by fire on De cember 22. Five days before that fifteen girls were killed or fatally in lured in Nashville, Tenn., by a fire that gutted a four-story brick building in about one hour. Hero there were no fire escapes. SOUTHERN PACIFIC. Every additional detail which tends to throw light upon the South ern Pacific line to Coos Bay will bo received gladly by .Coos Bay people, for all realize tiin inestimable good that will result to the country as a result of the roads coming. Rich dairy, timber, and agricultural lands that have hitherto suffered because of lack of transportation will be thrown open and the growth and de velopment of the country will re ceive a wonderful Impetus. There is still, however, a certain amount of wonder as to just whero this line is going in relation to Coos Bay. The location of the route seems wrapped in doep impenetrable mystery after it leaves the Umpqua river above Gardiner. It Is certain that tho cities on the bay will have connection with tho road. It is also obvious that the strategvtlc point be tween Portland and San Francisco Is Coos Bay because of Its deep water facilities. It is practically assured that tho bay will ont bo bridged. Therefore the Southern Pacific must long before this have purchased Its route, which it appears must parallel tho eastern side of the lower bay. There could be no better plan followed-than for that road to pass down that side of tho bay. It Is admittedly a freight road. It has for Its chief aim tho handling of tho enormous volume of freight which Its coming will nurture. Freight roads are not wanted on tho peniusula of Coos Bay. They should all run down the mainland across the bay. lWo have a very small peninsula here and cannot afford to let It bo .taken up by more than our terminal tracks and local electric railroad.
