TIIE DAILY ASTOMAN, ASTORIA, SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 30, 1893.
YESTERDAY MORNING'S FIRE.
A Few Details of the Big Blaze and
nn Hpr.ount of the hour and the late
negg an.l bustle at the fire yesterday
morning, It was Impossible for the As-
imian to eive a full account of tne ais
aster In Its last Issue, and but the
dpt.-iiis were obtainable. 1
blaze, m nearly a can be ascertained,
, rdriniiind alongside the band saw
the boi factory, and everything points
to the conclusion tV.ai the whole con
finsration was the work of an lncen
diary. Vigorous efforts are being mide
l.y the dlivct orate of the Clatsop j.1111
to ascertain everything possible in this
direction. The fire, which by a pecu
liar colncldi;nco, Is the first one of any
dimensions since the burning - f the
.pcra houne exactly a year ago l.c lay,
Mimnlclely destroyed the box factory
and the dry house connected w.h the
mill. Tho mill building Itself, thnnks
to the splendid efforts of the flreucn,
was only badly scorched, and nothing
of any consequence Inside the place was
damaged. One hundred thousand feet
of fine spruce lumber, the dry house,
one of the finest on the coast, the box
factory, with Its new machinery, and
a large number of boxes ready for ship
ment, are completely wiped out, and
only a few charred cinders remain of
wnat about 24 hours ago represented a
value f.f $31,000. Eighty-four men are
thrown out of employment, and a pay
roll of $950 a week Is lost to the city.
Dozens of large orders from growers of
California fruits for boxes remain un
filled. ' The loss Is only covered In a very
r.mall proportion by the Insurance,
amounting In all to $9,000, and this Is
distributed na follows:
ON BOX FACTORY:
1 loyal of London (Elmore, San
born & Co.,) .. 4,000
Connecticut (I. W. Case) 1,000
Phoenix (I. W. Case) 1,000
Springfield (I. W. Case) 1,000
ON DRY HOUSE:
Hartforl (Van Dusen)... $ 2,000
It Is stated that the dry house alone
cost $8,000 to erect. In addition to the
other lossci, nearly all the canners on
the lower river and a good many Cal
ifornia fruit men are cleaned out of
box brands and brass stencils, all of
which were In the box factory. These
were worth, at ft low valuation, $4,000,
and It will cost even more than this
uitiotint to replace them.
It is due to the members of the fire
brigade to make more than a passing
mention of their conduct. They showed
yesterday morning that they knew how
to"handla a big blaze, and that they
could exert as much pluck and use as
much discretion us any body of firemen
on this coast. They worked hard and
conscientiouily from tho very begin
ning of tho fight with the flumes, and
had the satisfaction of rctlng tholr
efforts successful. They saved the old
I X L cannery and the Clatsop mill
from what looked like almost certain
destruction. And all day yesterday
they tramped In tho mud and rain
among the smoking ruins watching for
a further possible outbreak. The de
partment Is to bo heartily congratu
lated. ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTICI3.
