FIRES AND ROBBERIES
: STARTLE BAKER CITY
Belief Is That - Incendiaries Caused Flames But There
Is Possibility That Crosed Wires Started Trouble
Baief City. Bept 10. There was much
excitement In Baker . Oty - laat . night
when three Area and two attempted
burglaries occurred within a few hours.
Tha first fire broke out in the atora of
James Osborn on Front street, and for
a time it looked aa If the adjoining
buildings would bo destroyed. Prompt
work on the part of the fire department
confined the flames entirely to the orig
inal structure and no damage was done
to other buildings. The. store waa--a
complete losi. the damage amounting to
14, one with $1,600 lnaurance. -
While the people were attracted by
the Osborn fire an attempt was made
by burglare to enter the Adler Jewelry
store by breaking a window pane In the
rear of the store. " The thief then
crossed the street to reconnqjtcr and
wsa driven away by Dr.- Ison, whose
mother had heard the crash and ob
served the man across the street. -
' Another fir was then discovered In
the rear of Wright Bros, chop house on
Front street, but wss put out before any
damage resulted.' In1 a short time an
other fire alarm was turned In from the
Citizens' National bank building and It
was discovered that there was a fir In
one of the rooms of -the Turkish par
lors. There waa so much smoke that
It was hard to locate the fir and con
siderable damage waa don by water.
The Cltisena bank ' was damaged aa
waa also the stock of the Baer Mer
cantile company. The origin of the two
big flrea Is not known, but Is thought to
have been caused by Incendiaries or pe
haps from defective electric llarht wire
While the excitement waa at Ha height
the police were notified of an attempt
that waa being- made to enter .the store
of W. W. Kelly on Wsshlnaton street.

Tha demand for mora room for coun
