In Town Eight Years Ago.
Brief Skotoh of It.
Tho poor electric railway Is catching It
hot and neavy now. 'Squlro "Jack"
Monaghan is particularly activo in his
criticisms and yostorday ho expressed hi
willingness to b t his judicial practice that
'no olectrie railway car will pass this court
Tho 'squire, like many others is a littlo
impatient. If ho will manngo to keep his
judicial pationco within a reasonable scope
ho will eventually eeo tho olectrie cars pass
his court and pass on beyond tho limits of
tho territory In which ho teems to reign
At times l am lorced to smtlo by re
marks I hear about "tho olectrie." A man
stood on n stroet corner yesterday and said,
I hoar they aro going to havo a gang of
Eyotalians to lay the electrio railroad
Sure, and havon't wo got plenty men here
who need work. It's tho cheap labor they
want, I suppose." I remember that not
many months ago tho individual who gayo
expression to this sentiment wanted to
build a houso and, to get it built as cheap as
possible, ho asked for bids. Tho cheapest
bidder for tho foundation work was a Hun
garian, who got tho contract, notwithstand
ing that a gooJ stono mason who had lived
in tho town for many years and raised a
family hore was willing to do tho work at
what wasa very fair figuro.
When wo squoezo tho dollar so hard our
solves that tho eagle is forced to scream
what can wo expect of corporations, which
aro reputed to havo no souls.
Eight yoars ago to-day Shenandoah
which had grown, Jiko the sturdy oak
springs from tho acorn, from a stretch of
wilderness to a patch and then to one of
tho most thriving towns of tho nnthracito
field, was swept by flames and within a few
hours one-third of tho town laid in ashes
and ruins. Monday, tho 12th day of No
vember, 1883, was a bitter cold day. Tho
thermometer was below tho freezing point.
A snow storm raged almost without inter
mission during tho greater part of tho day.
It was accompanied by a northwestern gale
that swept through tho town with great
fury. Shortly after noon tho residents of
West Centre street wero olectriflod by tho
cry of "flro." Mr. M. J. Cloary, who is
still doing business closo to tho placo whero
ho was then located, gave tho alarm. IIo
had noticed smoko issuing from a window
in an addition which had only recently
been built to the U. 3. Hotel, which occu
pied the sitoof thoprosont Ferguson House.
Within an hour after tho buildings on both
sides of Main street, between Contro and
Oak streets, were in flamos. Tamaqua,
Mahanoy City, Ashland and Pottsvillo
were appealed to lor assistance and ponding
the arrival of their flro companies themem
bors of the Columbia and Rescue com
panies fought liko heroes against great
odds. The flamos swept along the west
side of Main with terrific fury until they
struck Franey's brick building at tho
south wost cornor of Main and Oak streets.
On tho east side tho flamos swopt on to
Cherry street and there spent thomsolves.
Meanwbllotho firo made its way along
Centre and Oak streets to tho Lehigh Val-
loy depot and four hours after tho alarm
was given not a building remained standing
between Main street and tho Lehigh Val
loy railroad on tho oast, and Centre street
and Chorry stroot, on the south, except tho
buildings south of Franey's on tho west
sido of Main street. Tho value of prop
orty destroyed amounted to ovor $550,000.
Tho insuranco amounted to about $160,000.
At 0 o'clock on the night of tho flro J. J.
Powell presidont of tho Town Council,
presided at a mooting of tho body and tho
following named gontlemen were appointed
a relief committee: Messrs. M, J,
Whalen, John Hughes, Joseph Knipplo,
Abraham Lang, T. J. Hurley, Lewis Lohe,
John T. Thomas, John D. Hughes, John
Nolan, Patrick Sheehoy, D. J. Williams,
Thomas J. Foster, M, K. Doylo, Patrick
Ormsby and John J. Cardin. Chief Bur-
goss Daniel J, Williams wa9 authorized to
organize a patrol of ono hundred men to
pitrol tbo streots during tho night. An
appeal for aid was telegraphed to all
quarters of tho country. Subsequently tbo
relief committoo was increased by tho
addition of Messrs. S. A. Beddall, Q. W.
Johnson, M, P. Fowler, P. Conry and T.
1). Fioldors. John Oather was mado
treasurer of tbo oommittoo. Tho responses
to the appeal for nld wore prompt. Among
tho first to respond wore F. 1!. Gowon,
president of the Philadelphia and Reading
Railroad Company, $5,000; tho Lehigh
Valley Railroad and Coal Company, $500
each: Rey. Father O'Roilly, $600; Senator
Kckloy 11. Coxo, $600. Messrs. Johnson,

goods fjKowod their return. The sub

Among tho nows items p, caned from the
Dies of Hkralu's issu d after tho firo is
the following : "Mr. John A. Rjllly, not
satisfiod that all was correct, had the
Itor. ugh Surveyor measure tho lots from
tho corner of Main and Centre streets. I)y
so doing ho found that ovory property
owner on that square occupied some 18
inches of the other fellow's lot. It was a
timely discovory and saves lots of litigation
in tho future."
Work at thestrippings is to bo resumed
again. About two hundred Italians arrivod
yosterday for tho work,
Tho amount of work the Polish and
Hungarian women of Ibis town can do in
astonishing. Standing at tho corner of
Coal and Kmcrick streets one can, at almost
any hour during tho day, see them trudg
ing along with sacks of coal upon their
backs largo enough for beasts of burden to
carry. Thero will bo few empty coal bins
