ANOTHER BAD FLUE
Causes C. E. Hadley Loss
of About $8000.
INSURED FOR ONLY I1ALP
Ry :iord Work otid (Irent Oood
I'ordinc Plamcs Were Kept
Another defective flue caused the
second fire loss in Hcnd last Sunday
morning when C, Iv. Hadlcy's
saloon at the corner of Minnesota
and Uond streets burned to the
ground, with all the contents. The
loss wis Iwtwccn $7,500 and $8,000
on which there was $4,000 insur
ance $1,000 In the American,
$2,000 in the I?irc Association of
Philadelphia and $1,000 in the
Loudon, Liverpool & Globe.
The saloon was closed IkIwcch 1
and 2 o'clock Sunday morning.
The night was rntlier chilly and
there had been a brisk fire in the
stove, but everything seemed nor
mal wjien the place was locked up.
About 3 o'clock Mrs. Hedges was
awakened by a flickering light
through her window nnd when she
looked out the saw a building afire.
She amused Mr. Hedges, who lost
no time in spreading the alarm,
which was greatly assisted by the
Hadley and Stevens were among
the first to the fire. The roof and
much of the interior was then
ablaze. The) managed to get the
safe out and the piano was not as
far as the door when the flames
drove them away. An attempt to
secure the cash register was also
Water was running in the ditch
alongside the burning building.
The Ovcrturf boys on their way
down to the fire turned 011 a full
head of water and the bucket
brigade soon threw wa,tcr on
the fire and adjacent property.
No impression could be made on
the fire but the flames were confined
within the building where they had
origin. Wet blankets protected
the Whitsett building, 70 feet
away, and saved the Hadley ice
house, only 20 feet from the burning
building. Had the icehouse gone
tlie Chapman barn was next in line
and the Sathcr oil storehouse would
probably have conveyed the fire to
the Wall street stores of Chapman,
Sathcr and Caldwell & Satchwell
To prevent such havoc, when it
seemed impossible that the Had
ley icehouse could be saved, the
work of demolishing the Chapman
barn was lcgun. Two sides of that
building were badly wrecked when
the last burning end of the saloon
building was. pushed over into the
fire and the danger was past. It
was hot work pushing that threat
ening end over, and several men
were scorched in the operation.
The showers of the day before
left everything out of doors pretty
well drenched. The full ditch also
gave plenty of water for use so far
as buckets could uc it. There
was very little movement of air,
and that in a favorable direction.
lfirc-fighting apparatus would have
savd a large part of the saloon.
The saloon was built last winter.
It consisted of a main building
26x80 feet and an addition 14x30,
all one story in height. The in
terior furnishings were very fine,
the bar nnd back-bar alone, with
large French plate mirrors, having
cost over $3000. There were three
slot machines and a piano in the sa
loon and a large stock of liquors and
cigars in the adjoining ware room.
A gasoline plant lighted the build
ing, but the tank was removed
from danger before the fire reached
its location. It was in nil respects
a first class establishment, by long
odds the finest in Central Oregon.
There seems to be no doubt that
the fire caught from a defective
flue. The flue was built in cold
weather when it was impossible to
do u good job and the location and
circumstances of this fire indicate
that it caught somewhere in the
space between the ceiling and roof.
CHANQE ON POLICE FORCE.
II. '", l. t li
U. R'. Lesley to, be Superseded by C
,, , M. Weymouth.
The only business out oT- routine
Avhidh the city council did at the
Regular meeting last Tuesday night
was to discontinue Uie service of
V. Lester. n$ regulnfc policeman.
The council expressed itself in
favor of the appointment of C. M.
Weymouth as regular policeman
but that appointment will be made
by the mayor. It is assumed that
he will act upon the suggestion of
the council, though he is not bound
to do so.
There was no attempt to remove
Lester from the marshalship. Hut
his pay as marshal is only $1 per
year, while he has been receiving
$75 a month as policeman. For a
time there were two policemen.
Hut the shift in ditch construction
forces made the matter of policing
the town much lighter and the
force was cut down to one. Now
an efficient watchman Is all that is.
required and it is expected to get
this service for $65 a month. Mr.
Weymouth is absent from the city
and will not return until next week.
NONE AS QOOD AS BEND.
C. A. Chnpmnn Returns from a Trip
to Portland and Upper Country.
C. A. Chapman returned .Mqu
day from a journey to Portland ayd
Idaho. He had business iu.Hapt
eru Washington and Idaho an1 re
turned to Bend filled with enthus
iasm for Central Oregon. yj;en
he left Hcnd he thought busjbess
comparatively dull but he. finds' it
so much duller in the ,uper
country that tic is glad to getacH
home. A lot of new goods arrived
the same day he did. , ... , .
Mr. Chapman was a passenger
on the Mountain Gem, which,
carried a historic excursion from
Lewiston to witness the driving of
the last spike on the portage rail
road last week, and he brought
home a souvenir of that excursion
in the shape of a leather ticket
specially printed for the occasion
and duly punched in actita service.
It is somewhat bigger than n.banb
note and quite as significant for the
prosperity of the Upper Columbia
A number of people whom Mr.
Chapman came in contact with will
come to Hcnd soon. He wasale
to give out much valuable info r ma
ttou of this locality and found gen
cral eagerness to receive itl
OLD MAID OR WIDOW:
Mere's a Chance of a Lifetime
Tobacco Also Wanted.
Postmaster Grant is much hurt
at the tone .of a letter, he received
this week. It was addressed to the
Mistress Postmaster and its contents
were of interest chiefly to the .gent
ler sex. To show that the writer
of it was not effeminate, however,
he started out with a request for
good old Kentucky tobacco. The
letter .follows in full:
