FUMES PIN ATTACK I;
THE MASONIC TEMPLE i
Coutlnurd From Klint I'UKP. (
ri;• riOil as the kitchen was a mass of '
flames when the firemen arrived, I'ire 1
was shooting from two windows when
the engines iwui)! into IState street. '
A steam table in the middle of the '
kin iieu was used in connection with f
last evening's banquet and it is pos- 1
sible that iu some wav the gas under''
that started the lire, smouldering dur- '
in<.' tiie night.
The room to the front of the kitchen '
is a serving room and on this tlenr 1
the kitchen and this room occupy the 1
southwest wing of the building. This
room was completely gutted and many
chairs stored in it were consumed.
.Clothing Burns in Steel Lockers . 1
The fire made its way down under i
the kitchen to the armory of the I'il :
grim Coraranndery, Knights Templar,
which was filled with supposedly live
proof lockers used for keeping the uni
forms of the members. I'lames spread
through the south side of this room
and made the steel lockers red hot. In
ii dozen instances the clothing inside
lockers caught fire. Most ot' the other
uniforms in this room were damaged
by smoke or water. The uniforms are
many of them having cost j
more than a hundred dollars apiece.
A hole about sixteen square feet was
burned in the sixth floor and through
the ceiling of the fifth floor, the fire go-;
ing ou down into the council room of
the commandery, where burning embers I
fell onto the handsome high backed !
chair aud completely destroyed it. j
The Uev. Dr. \l. 1). Ui. hliter, an ofli- j
cial of the Pilgrim Commandery, opened i
the door of the council chamber for the!
firemen anil then ■personally superin- ,
tended the saving of more than $2,000
worth of furniture. The chair, which
was the most valuable piece in the room,
w;ts burned so badly that afterwards,;,
v. ;.vu it was handled, it fell to pieces.
The carpet in t'his room as well as that
in a large meeting room immediately
next on the fifth floor, was damaged bv
water. ' '
Smoke poured into the meeting room
in such volume that the walls were,
damage J and it may have to be
rated. Water ran out on the lloor above
and damaged considerably the furnish ;
lugs in the other rooms of the Pilgrim
<'omniaudery. The ball room and baiN
quet hall were damaged by smoke but
the flooring is hard wood and the water
did little u'r uo damage to that.
Masons Save Records
On the western side of the building
there is au eighth floor or half story
which was damaged slightly by fire
which came through from the kitonen
below. The kitchen aud pantry, with
the contents, are a total loss. The
fire was confined to the southwest wing
of the building and to the three upper
Between the sixth and seventh floors
the joists are burned away and the
steam table and gas stoves in the kitc'h
en are hanging suspended on a few
pipes ready at any minute to fall onto
the steel lockers in tiie room below.
The fire alarm box was pulled twice
and eight rounds of the alarm were
sounded in the city fire houses. Soon it
became rumored about the city Jliat the
Masonic Temple was doomed and that
a general alarm hail been sent iu. Only
the apparatus from one district, how
ever, was actually called out. Prominent
Masons hurried to the. Temple but it
was seen that the fire was under con
trol in the t'hree upper floors and they
did nothing except carry some of the
records out of the building from the
various lodge rooms in the third and
Shivering Firemen Eat Ice Cream
Mavor Joh 11 K. Royal, who is seore-
tary of the lodge that held the banquet,
las! evening, was on the scene early.
(Jeorgo W. Mclthenny, William A. 801 l !
an<l Clark E. Diehl, prominent members
of the order, were at the (ire and super- j
intended the salvage work. The water
was swept from the upper floors onto'
the stairway, which is made of slate, j
and then out of the building. This
plan kept the water from seeping to!
any great the lower floors.:
The firemen wifo operated the engine I
stream from the fire escape suffered ,
from the cold. Water froze on the tire!
escape opposite the top floors ami made |
footing dangerous. This stream was j
kept on the flames for only five miDutes i
and the lighting was then conducted
from the inside T'hc mercury regis- j
tered 11 degree? at that time. This
low temperature was sufficient to freeze ,
the water inside the building so that j
,teps on tho inside were ice-coated, j
The fire-figthters worked in coats frozen |
stitT in some instances.
In a tour of inspection after
fire one of the firemen came upon some
i.e cream that had been left over from
the banquet and the smoke-eaters made
short work of it after it was offered
to thein by Superintendent Machlin.
Misses Wafts Suffer No Loss
The occupants of the store rooms
and offices in the first and second floors
oJ The Masonic Temr|le, were very for
tunate, practically no damage was
ilone in either of these two floors by
fire or water.
None of the holiday stock of the
Christmas Novelty Shop, which is con
ducted iu the Third street Hide of the
building by the Misses Anna M. and
Marion B. C. Watt*, was damaged.
Miss Marion Watts said this morning
that if f*he iiaJ not been told that there

LATE WAR NEWS SUMMARY

oft the east coast of England in the
territory covered/ . yesterday .by the
raiding German warships. These ves
sels were said in England to have scat
tered mines to cover their retreat.
Seventy-lour persons were killed and
147 woundod, according to the best,
figures now available in the raid on
the east coast of England yesterday by
German warships. The heaviest losses
, were in Hartlejpool where, the British
information bureau announces, fifty.five
persons were killed and I 15 wounded.
: Unofficial reports give tho casualties
;in Scarborough at 17 killed and :li
i wounded, and in Whitby at 2 killed and
| 'J wounded.
The success of the Germans in mak-
I ing their way past the line of British
! warships and through mine fields and
i escaping after the bombardments leads
! England to expert another attack, prep
arations for which are under way. Ber
' lin is elated and the newspapers thero
hint that yesterday's exploit may bn
the prelude to greater events on the
Germany's new plan for the opcra
: tion against the Russian armies is un
folding gradually. Petrograd dispatches
say that the Austro-German flanking
operations in the Carpathian mountains
and on the Vistula are being conducted
on a large scale, and that they threaten
Russian lines of communication. Stuh
importance is attached to these nian
■ euvers that apparently Germany is
s willing to risk an invasion by the Rus
sian armies in the south, withdrawing
troops from that region for use on tho
battlefields west of Warsaw. An official
statement from Vienna says that in
Galicia and Southern Poland the Rus
sians are retreating along the entire
front and are being pursued.
i Russia's Caucasian army is having
frequent encounters with the Turks
but official statements are at such vari
: ance that it is difficult to form an
opinion as to what is happening. The
Russian general staff states that the
Turks, reinforced, assumed the offen
■ sive in the Van region, Armenia, but
were beaten decisively. The Turkish
statement says that these battles "re
sulted in our favor."
