P. A. STOKES, 0n Price To Everybody
House of Hoo Hoo Totally Destroyed
and Oregon Building Endang
ered by Flames.
St Louis, June 24. Fire this morn
ing burned the Hoo Hoo house at the
world's fair grounds, entailing a loss
of $100,000, on which there was an
Insurance of 120,000.
The Union Baking Company conces
sion In the building suffers 18,000.
The Hames spread ao quickly that
for a time It was feared a serious con
flagration was In prospect, and several
occupants of the building had narrow
escapes. The fire is supposed to have
started from an electric light wire.
The Oregon, Texas, German, and Mines
and Metallurgy buildings adjoining
were In great danger for a time.
The alarm was answered by the en
tire fire department and by eight en
gine companies and two ladder trucks
from the city department, also, by
Hales' Are fighters.
Quick runs were made by all the
companies, but the rapid spread of the
flames rendered their attempts to ex
tinguish the fire valueless. But 10
minutes before the alarm from the
"House of Hoo Hoo" the world's fair
fire department had answered a still
alarm from the mysterious Asia con
cession on the Pike, where a fire had
started in the elephant barn. The loss
there, however, was insignificant, as
there waa only a small amount of hay
burning, but the excitement was added
to by a wild stampede of elephants
and camels.
The "House of Hoo Hoo" was di
vided into many rooms and was con
structed of different kinds of fine and
expensive lumber. Aside from this
were specimens of rare woods which
were valued highly.
It has not been decided yet whether
to rebuild it or not.
Thirty Black Cats Burn.
There were 30 black cats In the
building at the time of the fire, and
these are believed to have perished.
Fearing the Texas building would
be destroyed, the women of the stats
exhibit worked heroically to save the
precious relics "of early history.
Sheets were torn from beds in ths
building and used to carry the relics
ta places of greater safety. Nothing
but the fact that the wind was not
blowing toward the Texas building
saved it .
For a time almost a panic reigned
In the Oregon building, which it was
feared would Join in the general blase.
Preparations had been made by the
excellently drilled attendants to re
move the most valuable exhibits on
a moment a notice, but the subjection
of the flames preventing a spread ren
dered this move "unnecessary.
Hoo Hoos Disconsolate.
The great Hoo Hoo organisation Is
disconsolate over tile loss, as the build
ing was one which had been erected
with Infinite pains, requiring time as
well as special effort on the part of
members of the organization to secure
rare woods and timbers.
Its loss takes from the fair one of
the most noticeable attractions and one
which has been patronised In particu
lar by foreign visitors, who were thus
enabled to study in a practical way
American woods and American lum-
The "House of Hoo Hoo" was erect
ed by stock subscribed for by the
Lumbermen's Association and the
members of the Hoo Hoo Society at
a total cost of 100,000. The building
was designed for a clubhouse for lum
bermen and Hoo Hoos visiting the
exposition, and was lavishly furnished
It was the purpose of the society to!
hold a series of concatenations there
during the summer months. The first
of these concatenations was called to
order by Vicegerent Snark T. A. Meore
Saturday night, June 11, 1904, and was
attended by several hundred of the
most prominent lumbermen of the

after his long ride, but said he
was glad to get back. He is
greatly pleased with the recep

New York Papers Do Not Comment on
New York, June 24. Few of the
morning papers comment on the nomi
nation of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Fair
banks at Chicago, although all of them
print long accounts of the proceedings.
The editorials treat of the result as
a foregone conclusion. The Morning
Post says that if Senator Fairbanks
adds little to the strength of the party
ticket he cannot be said to detract from
it The selection of Mr. Fairbanks, the
paper says, as a running mate of Mr.
Roosevelt who, preferred another, may
be regarded not as a revolt against
Roosevelt, but as a hint of the dele
gates from the state of New York that
the president is not all powerful.
Other newspapers, If they comment
at all upon the result of the conven
tion, make only the most casual men
tion of it

Filipino Commissioners Having Time
of Their Lives.
Washington, June 24. The Filipino
commissioners to the St Louis expo

Friends Say Two Were Witnesses to
the Tragedy.
Portland, June 24. Friends of Frank
Guglielmo declare there waa two eye
witnesses to the murder of Freda Guar-
ascla, and that the absence of one
of them from the city may cause post
ponement of the trial, which has been
set for next Tuesday. Who the eye
witnesses are cannot be ascertained.
A well-known detective, who waa
once a member of the police depart
ment and who has been looking p evi
dence for Guglielmo, asserts that he
has seen the witnesses, but who they
are he will not say. One of them, he
said, might not be able to be present
in court next Tuesday and the case
may have to go over.
Deputy District Attorney Adams says
that bo far as the state knows tfcefe
was only one eyewitness of the trag
edy. This was a carpenter who was
working near the Guarascla home and
who was passing by 1t When the first
shot was fired. Mr. Adams will not'
reveal the man's Identity, nor will he
say how much he saw, further than
that he saw the girl fall. Mr. Adams
does not believe there will be any
postponement of the trial, as all the
state's witnesses will be on hand and
the defendant has bad ample oppor
tunity to subpoena those In his behalf.
