Baker City, Sept 10. There was much
excitement In Baker City laat night
when three fires and two attempted
burglaries occurred within a few houra.
The first fire broke out In the store of
James Osborn on Front street and for
a time it looked as if the adjoining
buildings would be 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 btilldlngs. The store was -a
complete loss, the damage amounting to
$4,000 with 12,600 inaurance.
While the people were attracted by
ti nhnrn fire an attemDt was made
by burglars to enter the Adler Jewelry
store by breaking a window pane In the
rear of tne store. td inier men
crossed the street to reconnoter and
was driven away by Dr. Ison, whose
mother had heard the crash and ob
served the man across the street .
Another fire was then discovered In
the. rear of Wright Bros, chop house on
Front street, but was put out before any
damage resulted. lit- a short time an
other fire alarm was turned In from the
Citizens' National bank building and it
was discovered that there was a fire in
one of the rooms of -the Turkish par
lors. There was so much smoke that
it was hard to locate the fire and con
siderable damage was done by water.
