JAMISON CITY FIRE.
Single and Double Houses Hazed by Flames.
Fire, evidently caused by defec
tive flue, resulted in the destruc
tion of a double house, owned by
Perry Hess and a single residence
owned by Miles Miller, In the up
upper end of Jamison City Tuesday
morning. The loss will be abont
$2,000. Practically all of the
household goods were saved, and
no one was hurt.
Mrs. Adeline Rhone and Thomas
Vanllorn occupied the Hess house
and Mr. Miller lived in his own
property. At about 8:30 o'clock
in the morning, a neighbor noticed
smoke coming through the roof of
the Hess house occupied by Mr.
Rhone, and quickly spread the
alarm. In a few minutes the
whole roof of the house was in

The flames spread quickly and
the Miller home adjoining was on
fire in a few minutes.
A line of hose, owned by the
Elk Tanning company was laid
from the tannery dam, 2000 feet to
the scene of the flames, but because
of the long distance and the diffi
culty experienced in getting the
hose connections together, it was
nearly a half hour before they
could get a sufficient stream of wa
ter to extinguish the flames. Once,
however, it was in working order,
a powerful force pump sent a
stream of water with a pressure
that sent the burning weather
boards flying from the side of the
buildings. In less than twenty
minutes after the water was start

ed, but not before both the houses
were beyond repair.
The fire caused great excitement
for a while, and it was feared that
other houses would catch but by

The Democratic State Central
Committee met at. Harrisburg on
Wednesday and fixed that city as
the place for holding the state con
vention, and the time August 4th.
This county was represented by
county chairman J. H. Mercer, and
District President, J. G. Harman.
At 1 o'clock the State Commit
tee met at the Board of Trade, the
attendance being very full. State
Chairman Dewalt was named for re
election by William J. Brennen and
elected by acclamation amidst ap
plause. Mr. Dewalt made a brief
speech of acceptance, returning his
thanks and asking the assistance of
every worker in the party.
I recognize the responsibility
of this position," said the speaker,
"but whatever I can do to further
the interests of the Democratic par
ty and bring victory is at your ser
vice. There seems to be an idea
that this is an 'off year.' That is
a mistake. There never is an 'off
year'. Every year we must stand
up and fight for Democratic princi
ples. But the chairman cannot
fight alone. He must have . the
help of the leaders; he must have
the help of the rank and file, and
we must imbue the people with
that idea. Help must come from
the county chairmen. Each one
owes a duty to the State chairman,
that he must use every effort to get
the voters out and be on the aggres
sive. The offices to be voted for
this year are some of the most im
portant in the gift of the people."
The speaker then defined the du
ties of Judge of the Supreme Court,
State Treasurer and Auditor Gen
eral, saying that the latter official
held the most powerful position in
the State. These offices, he said,
are more important than that of the
"We will nominate a candidate
for Judge of Supreme Court this
year," he said, "with some hope
and show of election. See that
every Democrat gets to the polls
and supports Democratic principles.
