A $25,000 FIRE.
The Largest File in Yeais Occuia at
No. 3 Shaft.
At 0 o'clock yestetdny morning nn
alarm was turned In from Box G8, ultu
ntPd .it tlio Lookout. A second alarm
followed In five minutes, calling out nil
tlio firemen und nppnrntua In the city.
Tiro had been discovered In the shaft
of No. :! mine, owned by tho Delaware
and Hudnon company, Just below tho
Lookout crosslnBT.nnd bcforo the llamea
were gotten under control they had
swept through the enshiu room, blnck
smlth shop and all other buildings on
the HUif.ico nnd bin nod out the shaft
George Dawson, it, miner, had a few
inlnutrs before the lire was discovered,
none down Into the mine to do some
carpenter work. Ho was accompanied
by Michael Garvey, a pump runner,
.uid another man. w-Iiofo name could
not be ntrettalned. A few miners were
celebrating the day of test by sltltng
In tho blacksmith shop, smoking and
telling stories. when their attention ww
simultaneously attracted by a gust of
fUnie and smoko issuing from tho
mouth of thu shaft. Quick as men
tould iun, theso men turned in nn
alarm. The Cottage Hose company,
located near theie, w-ni soon on the
swno with their apparatus, and short
ly nfterwnrd the Columbian arrived.
It was seen nt onco that the fire was
going to be a tough one to fight und
11 second alarm was turned in, sum
moning the Mitchell Hose company.
Theso three companies of volunteer
Hremen made a brave light against
overwhelming odds, for the day was
bitterly cold, the buildings endangered
were old and of unpalntcd pine and
dry as match-boxes. They stuck game
ly to their posts, however, nnd did all
they could to prevent the spreading of
the flameB. The force of water thrown
on the blaze was inadequate nnd about
half thu required pressure was lack
ing. By It o'clock the buildings were a
mass of ruins nnd the flames had been
confined to tho shaft, which was still
throwing out dense volumes nt smoko
nnd steam. The nozzles of tho differ
ent lines of hose were directed against
this. At 11 o'clock another alarm was
rung, but this was interpreted ns a
mistake, ns two taps should have been
rung. A few minutes later these taps
At S o'clock another alarm was rung
In from tho samo box nnd a big ciowd
assembled in front of the Columbia
hose house, on Slain street, to see the
horses turn out. But the spectators
had to be gratified by seeing tho
Mitchells' fine black team gallop past.
The Columblas had correctly inter
preted the signal to mean that they
should come nnd get their hose, which
had been left to pour a stream down
tho shaft. They obeyed tho signal
after the crowd had dlsperhed.
In the engine loom thus desttoyed
four largo engines and three "bull"
pumps were ruined. One of these
pumps had a capacity of 5,400 gallonR
a minute and the other two 2,250 gal
lons a mlnuto each. Their destruction
means the flooding of the mine, law
throwing 500 men and 'boys out of
Foreman Bofce estimated the totnl
loss at $23,000. Ho says that tho shut
down will not last more than a week,
as a tempoinry pump will be rigged up
at once, and inulo power will take tho
place of the endless rope.
The firemen suffered severely fiom
the cold weather, and tho spectators
were drenched a number of times when
a quick shlttlrs of the hose took place.
The thiee men who had descended into
the shaft Jubt before the outbieak of
tho fire made their exit by means of
A Saturday Morning File.

building, on Salem avenue, early Sat

been done by the llames. This build

butcher, only a few days ago, nnd ho
had not uttended to thu transfer of tho
instance policies at the time the file
broke out. Water and smoke were re

He supposed tho fire was In tho opera

Mitchells got a lino of hose to the reur
of the latter building, when it was seen
that it was the third story of tho
Frank Elbrtcht, who bonids with the
nivenburcs, had a loom on the third
floor, and a messenger awoke him. By
this time the smoke was so dense that
Mr. Elbrecht had much difficulty In es

MOBS ABOUT THAT OVERCOAT.
Mr. Fuller Is Vindicatod and Another
Is in the County Jail.
The Tribune printed a story on Sut
uiday morning regarding William V.
Fuller being arrested and held In $100
ball hefoio Atderman Baker for the
larceny of nn overeat from Charles
Letts, of the Buffet. Another chapter
of that stoiy Is now tendy for publica
tion. After Mr. Fullei had lealled the
gravity of tho charge against him he
concluded that he wouldn't be obstln
atc any longer and inado up ils mind
to tell all he knew about the coat and
how it came into his possession If
ho hnd adopted this course In the be
ginning he would have saved lots of
trouble for all concerned. He confided
to Constable 1'lerce, who had him In
chnrge, that he had bought the coat
f i om a man named Joslah White, of
Jcrmyn, nnd swoie out n wan ant for
his arrest on the specific charge of
selling or battering stolon goods., know
ing them to be stolen. This wan ant
was obtained from Alderman Morrison,
as Alderman Baker had closed up his
ofllco and could not be loiind. Con
stable Pierce and Puller drove down
to Jermyn, placed White under nuest
and bi ought him to this cltv, viheio
he was placed on tilul before Aldei
ninn Mnitlson nt a late hour Pilday
On the way back Constable Pierce
noticed that White was very unens
Ho would eery few minutes place ills
hand inside his coat and work his lin
gers near the region of tho Inside
pocket. Arter a while Pleiee asked
White whut was tlio matter with him.
The prisoner mumbled something about
his "galluses" slipping down. But
Pierce was suspicious and told him to
keep his ImntLout of there In a min
ute or so the member stole back. Then
Pierce spoke plain nnd to the point.
He told White If he placed his hand In
there again he would knock him down
with his "Jack." Tho constable was
limit med except foi this piece of wood
and did not propose to tnko any
When he had got lilm to Aldeiman
Moirlson's olllce Pleiee seatched White
and in the Inside pocket, whete the
hand had so often strayed, was loiind
a loaded revolver, wrapped In a piece
of cloth. Evidently White had tiled
to get the cloth oft, but for what pui
pose can onlv i t onjectured. Another
find was a paicel of new sllei spoons
which the pilsoner said he had gotten
from Chicago foi the puipose of sell
ing, but when ptessed as to whom he
expected to sell them he was lathei
muddled In his lenlles.
At tho healing before Aldei man, Mor
rison Mr. Fuller became the at elisor
Instead of the prlsonsr. He testltled
that he hnd tiaded the coat with White
for his own and had given SI..V) "to
boot." Then he bought back his own
coat trom White for 50 cent" He hnd
worn It innocently, going Into Letts'
place on S.ituul.iy unsuspicious of the
fact that it was Letts' coat lie had
on, and then fellow ed his an est
'Mrs. Fuller followed her husband on
tho .stand and told ot how Fuller hud
brought the coat home and she had
sewed his name in it, knowing that
her husband would not have come by
It dishonestly Other witnesses testl
tled and then Joslah White was heard.
He said he had found tho coat at Xo.
1 btldge at midnight. The aldeiman
asked him why he had not gone home
Instead of tiaveling In an opposite di
rection. AVhlte said he did not know
the way to Jermyn
"How long have you lived t hens'"
"And you don't know the load after
After a little the mlsouor had a
brand new story to tell why he was nt
Xo. 1 bridge so late at night. This was
followed by others until the alderman
giew weary nnd held White In .'00
ball for knowingly bartering stolen
goods, and an additional J'iOO for car
rying eoncenlsd weapons. He was
taken to the county Jail In Seranton

JUMPED FOB HIS LirE.
Robert Edwards Had h Narrow Es
cape from Beinj Killed.
Bobert Ldw arils, tho meal man of
Salem avenue, had a close lace with
death on Satuuluy evening. Ho wus
leturning from Jeimyn, where ho had
been on business, and was driving his
team. He lost control of tho horses
nnd they set out at a ilgli rate of
speed for this city.
The horses started to lidm tin.
tracks of the Delaware and Hudson
railroad Just below this city as tinln
Xo. 19, due In this city at 7.01, came
whirling along at a high rate of speed.
The engine struck the team, killing
one horse Instantly nnd Injuilng thu
other so It Is a question If It can be
saved. Mr Kdwauls Jumped from tho
wagon Just in time to save his own
llfo and landed unhurt on tho Hack
beside the ono the wngon was on.
Saturday was a bad duy for Mr. Kd
wards, for besides this accident his
newly purchased propeity on Salem
nvenue was badly damaged by fire ear
ly In the morning.

"THY KINGDOM COME."
A Stirring Sermon Delivered by Bv.
Elliott at Congregational Church
Yesterday morning, at the Tlrst Con
st egntlnnnl church, nev. M. C. Elliott,
the pastor, preached to a good-sized
congregation. A featuie of the set
vlco was tho excellent music rendered
by tho choir, under the direction of
John Xnylor. the now chorister nnd
organist. Miss IMlth Fowler, who
possesses a rich contralto voice, was
In the choir for tho first time yester
day morning nnd was a decided ac
quisition. Mr. Klllott chose for the text ot
his morning's discourse a pin use In
the Lotd'i Prnyci: "Thy Kingdom

been heralded through the theatilcal
columns of tho dally papers to such an
unlimited extent of late that to those
who have not watched tlvo career of
