Portland, Oct. 14.— Missouri e state
building is the first of the edifices of
the Lewis and Clark fair to meet an
nntimely fate at the hands of the de
stroyer. It was not a wrecking crew
which totally demolished Missouri's
magnificent reprsentation at the West
ern World’s fair, last night, but it was
relentless and unfeeling
flames, which tore and burnt their way
through the building from one end to
the other, devouring the rarest treas
ures of art, almost invaluable exhibits,
costly fixtures, leaving in their wake a
path of destruction, a vivid reminder
of the awful power of fire.
The fire began apparently from an
unknown cause at 8 »’clock last night,
presumably in the rear end, and within
15 minutes the whole of the building
and all of its contents had been utterly
A desk, a trunk and three
chairs were the only things that were
The statue, representing the
state of Missouri, which Btands in front
of the building, and which was present
ed to the state of Oregon this week,
was untouched. The Missouri building
was sold yesterday to the Missouri
wreckage company, a local concern, for
$2,000, but was not to have been de
livered until today. The erection of
the building resulted in the expendi
ture of $12,000, and the cost of install
ing the exhibits amounted to aboi t
$8,000 more. While the loss of the
art gallery is commercially ectimated
at $20,000, most of the paintings and
statues were owned by art admirers,
and could net be bought for the mere
sake of money. The total loss of the
building, art gallery and exhibits is
estimated at $50,000. Of insurance
there was a meager sum of $5,000 on
the art gallery.
AH that remains of the Missouri
building is a ghastly and heart rending
pile of blackened boards and twisted
ironwork, where until last night stood
