delay was caused because the engine could get no water That however is not true Mayor Mitchell was at the waterworks after tho fire was out and all the tanks were nearly full The origin of the fire is unknown Mr KimtJson has a theory that it caught from the electric wires hut there is nothing to base that on except thai the lights were flickering in that part of town prior to the discovery of the
