From thu Wnlln Wnlhi Union,
At 2:40 Tuesday morning flro, was dis
covered hack of tho Aurora hotel, corner
It oho and Fourth streets and an alarm
was turned in. In u very short tlino,
considering tho lateness of the hour, and
the fact that tho bell could bo heard only
a short dlttanco, Tigers and Our Jloys
ungiuo companies had their engines set
and strings of hoso strung out to tho lire,
but with tho strong wind blowing thero
was no hope of extinguishing tho Humes
in tho burning building, but a i;trong
cll'ort was mado to stop its farther spread.
Tho wing was blowing strongly at tho
time, and it was only with tho utmost
dlfllculty that the hosomen could get near
enough'to play upon tho tlames. At 2 :55
another alarm was turned in, thu lire
proving tills time to bo at tho corner of
l'oplar and rifth streets, in tho old eon
vent building, owned by Kd. Williams
mid occupied by Mrs. I-andlaaHa lodging
house. Ourlioys engine was immediately
dlfpatchcd to thu sceno. hut tho building
being largo thu Humes had coinpleto as
cendency, and the dwelling houso next to
tho burning building, owned and occupied
by J. Kaucett, was also iu Haines, lly
throo o'clock Chiof Engineer Kulliug
ordered out tho Heseuu steamor, stored In
tho city hall, and this was soon in tho
hands of ltescuo tsiys, with steam up and
strings of lioso out, attempting to stem
the stream of lire, which by tins timohad
gotten almost beyond control. When it
was discovered that tho hand engine was
not ablo to i.'o 110 with the Humes At Fifth
and l'oplar, Itoseuo steamer was ordered
up and moved over to that place, wlicro
their timely arrival was tho means of
saving I ho residence of John l'icard, next
door to'l'aiicott's. IJy ;t:4 tho llros at
both places woro under control, there
being no longer any danger of a further
spread of llanies. A strong wind was
blowing at tho tlmu of the alarm, almost a
galo, and but n few minutes after llru was
discovered In thu Aurora hotel, il was a
sheet of llamo, and thoso who oscaiied
from tho building only did so by sacrillo
ing thelri'lothing, many of them having
to jump from thu uii-stairs windows to
escape. In an incredibly short spacu of
timo the building occupied by A. Noack
was also allro and bti'iieil. A few min
utes afterwards tho small dwelling back
of tho hotel, on Koso street, occupied
by n family recently arrived, was
on tiro and soon burned down.
At almost tho sumo time Marshal
Martin's blacksmith shop, across
tho street, was allro, hut hard fighting
by tho engino extinguished this hlar.o
in its iiiclpieney. Mrs. Thomas' residence
u cross ltoso street, for a time was in im
minent danger, as was tho residence of
Mrs. Ilerzog on the other side of Fourth
street, the flames blowing directly in
tboir direction, while phowors of sparks
Hew on tho wind for a long distance,
setting lire to tho roof of Airs. M. M.
Hart's residence, back of tho Chriatian
church on Sumach street, lly hard work
tho places were saved. At the tiro on
l'oplar and Fifth street tho building in
which the tire caught went in tho same
way, tho Inmates only having time to es
cape iu their night clothes, and tho wind
swept the Humes across tho street setting
fire to the residence of It. i. Parks ami
the fenco surrounding that ofO. llrechtel,
1'icard'ri residcuco, from which thu furni
ture was removed, was saved from burn
ing. Thu origin of thu fires is shrouded in
mystury, but every indication ioints to
incendiarism. Mrs. I.undis, who occu
pied tho old convent as a lodging house,
was llrst notified of It by hearing Mrs.
Shaw, who roomed there, calling to hor
t6 get up as the houso was atlro. She
sprang out of bed immediately, and look
ing iu tho hallway, found it a mass of
llamo, and seeing no opportunity to
escapo in that direction, seized u chair,
and breaking a window sash, sprung gut
in her night gown. Mrs.. Shaw, in an
ellbrt to save some clothing for her baby,
was hemmed in by the Humus, and In
endeavoring to escaio through a window,
gashed hor wrist severely. It is known
that tho hallways hud leun liberally
sprinkled with coal oil. In tho Aurora
tlie lire was llrst discovered by tho
night watchman, who saw the tlames
breaking out buck of tho dining room.
Ho immediately ran tin stairs, kicking
tho doors in and alarming tho sleopors.
Ho succeeded In doing this on one side of
the upstairs, but by that timu tho flames
had gained such headway that there was
no wav of alarming tho. o on tho .other
side. 'Kven with tho promptness of giv
ing tho alann, nono got out too soon, and
it was early cared that several had per
ished iu thu tunics.
When tho tiro was at its height Henry
Lowe- saw u man descend the stairway,
his clothlm; all blazing, when he reached
tho foot of tho stairs the man Ecomod be
wildered, waudoring about iu an aimless
fashion, apparently not seeing tho door
way, but a few feet distant. Iiwo
rushed in and grabbing the burning man
dragged him into tho street, where tho
burning garments woro torn ofT, and ho
was recognized us (ieo. Herold, of Eu
reka Flat. Ho was burned frightfully
and was removed to the Sllno House,
where Dr. N. Ii. Hhdock dressed his
burns and hud him removed to tho hos
pital. From tho fhst the doctor enter
tained no hope of his recovery. His
hands and feet woro literally cooked, tho
skin and ilesh jieeling oil entire. His
head was burned almost boyond re
cognition. It is understood that u lady
with two young children did not cscajto,
and soveral men who were known to bo
sleeping in the Iioubo have not yet been
seon. Tho hotel clerk informed the
Union reporter that ho has no way of
knowing how many jwrlshed, but says
that Mrs. l'ylo wus tho only lady in tho
houso, Tho !ed book of tho hotel was
saved, and an investigation will bo made
as soon as it is imssiblo to search tho
Tho losses and insuninco uro estimated
as follows, in somo cases it being imios
slblo to seo tho losers : J. S. Cox, (tho
Aurora hotel owned by him being a total
loss) $4,000; insuninco, $2,000; Mrs.

A Hoy Without u Home.
A boy named Charles Diver, about six
teen years old, was arrested yesterday for
vagrancy. After giving him a moral lec
ture ami somo sterling advice this morn
ing, Decorder Crews asked him what hu
would do if hu was let oil', and hu replied
that ho supjioscd ho would have to beg
again. There Is no place to keep children
in this county, and It is rather a dilllcult
thing to dispose of a case of tills kind.
Ho is too yoilng to work on tho streets,
aitd unless a pjaco can be found for liim
with a family, ho will have to" Iw kept in
Jail. Mr. Crews, in sjieaktng of him. said
that hu was a handsome, bright and hon
est uicarlug boy, and If he had a chance
might make a good man. Will not some
good man who needs a loy in his busi
ness call at the jail and do a commenda
ble deed by saving this ioor wanderer
from tho snares of tno wicked world?
A l'rciillnr Allllctlou.
Several weeks ago tho llltlo son of Mr.
and Mrs. F. C. Campbell changed from
sunsliiuu and smiles to bitterness and
woo. The little fellow seemed to bo suf
fering, but apparently thero were no Ills.
At last it was discovered that his arm was
crooked, and apcarcd as if it had been
broken and grown together again in an
irreuuhtr hIuuhj. Hu was taken to the
doctors, and ft was discovered that tho
arm had Imjoii broken, nrolmhly by a fall,
and its condition hud not Itecomu ap
parent to tho parents. Infants' arms are
In a very llnilxir condition anyhow, at all
times. The doctor advises Mr. and Mrs.
Camnliell to have thu arm rebroken and
sot, so that it will bo straight, but its
mother cannot reconcile nerseit to cause
her darling so much puin and sutlering,
which would follow such a proceeding,
although it would tho best for the little
fellow In thu long run.

At tho sneclal mcetimr of tho Hoard of
