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- berwork. 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 throughout. 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 country. Tangier, June 25. (12:55 a. m.)

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 ARE WINED AND DINED. CHILD BURNED TO DEATH.
