Barnaby Company, manu. faoturers and dealers iu ready made olotU. ing, was wiped out by fire this afternoon. The structure was ono of the finest of the big blocks on Wesl^inster st. It Avas situated in the very heart of the coiumeroial centre of the city, and had a frontage on Westminster and Dorrance Bts., while in tho rear is Middle st. The J. B. Barnaby Oopapany occupied throe fioors and the basement. Every foot of room was packed with clothing of till Idnds for. men and women's wear, and tlie stock was without a doubt the largest ever hpiised under ono roof iu this State, "itW^^jftlhedat$400,000, and is a total loss. : On thp Westminster front, first floor, Robert Fosaohdenfbarridd on an extensivti"] business in hats, caps and gent's furnisli-ings and tho big mart had about $2E,000 in stock all of which were bm'ned. On tho upper floor G. H. Taylor & Co. car-J ried on the jewelry business, and a very large stock of holiday goods was on hand. Taylor's loss will roacli upwards of $70,000. Louis W. Ciai'k, electrician, sutfored a loss of 3000. The National band, which had rooms on the third floor, lost its musical outfit, worth S8000. Sign Painter Coe, also a tenant, sufi'ers a loss of S1500. The janitor of the block lost $400 worth of household effects. The J. B. Barnaby Company was insured for CO per cent, of tho loss. Col. Henry B. Winship, of the Barnaby Company, met with a personal loss of several thousand valuable papers, whioh cannot be replaced. Tlie flames spread with such rapidity that Col. Winship liad not even time to pull out a single drawer In his private desk, whioh contained UoouiiieutN of Stuoli Vulne relating to the lato J. B. Barnaby's property and also to tho estate of Hoiii'y Conrad. Coi; Winship offered $5000 reward to any one who would re-enter tho burning building and secm'o tho drawer full of documents, but ho could find nono to make tho venture. The fii'e broke out in tho basement and in loss that le iiiinutfis it reached the roof and every floor in tho Bai'uaby part of tlio building was iu flamoa, Tlio first alarm was sounded at 2.10 o'clook. and by the time tho second wont out everything was black with sinoko, and ilatnos bm-st i'roin nearly every window. The tiro departinont oovorcd tho goods in tliciatoro of liobort Fesscndeu with tarpaulins, not cousldorlug tho lire liable to work through tlio thick walls of tlio bmUlincr, but the flames, whioh ragod for over six lioiirs, consumed tho entire contents, with tho fire department covers. Not a single dollar's worth of property was saved from tho block. Four alarms In all wero sounded, and' besides the worlc of Iceopliig the fire in check from engulfing tho Dorrance and Nana-gansett hotels .lud many lofty strueturos surrounding, tho firemen had many lives to save. � .        � In tho upper stories there were many women who wero panicky from tho outset. Thoy were warned by tho smoke coining up the elevator shaft, and having no time to grasp their oM'n clothos tlioy snatched what garments were handy and rasliod out. Itisptatod that but for one iinproveineiit that was made a low weeks apro, whereby tho office, wlucli was I'onuerly open, was Inclosed by a glass partition, uiitioubtedly there would have been a loss of life, as the smoke was confined for a iriatcrial len>rtli of tiuie in this ouolosuro, thus giving timo for a warning. But for tlio fire escape, located on tho Middle St. end of the building, human life would have been sacrificed. This e.fcapo was put on last week. Fifteen women wero employed liy the Barnaby comp.iuy in the women's department on tlie second and third fioors. xlioro 'rheir firat knowlodgo of danger was communicated by overpowering emoko that surged into tlie rooms. For a few m onion ts TUo lEuprifioiAod W vn. the cause of the huiTying and souri'ylng,.an< in less time than it can bo told the ladies department waa changed, from. a scei)o of amet to a perfect bedlam, shrloks and cries were heard on every side, and but fo^ the presence of mind of Col, WinalUp and Mr. Anthony many would have been hurt in the mad rush tor tho stairway and fire e.seapos. The firo after this had tho raostefy for over two hours, and the neighboring, shop- oi5^^the^ roofs. Tile "fire swept 'wross MlddfT!?;-and caught on'tlie Hidden building,' but the fl):o-mon prevented tho spread In that direction. Every available piece of the fire department had been called out half an hour after the fire started, and the threatened aestruo-tion of the centre of, the city pronyjted the call for relief from PaWtuckot. Johnstoa and n'blgliboring towns. Three stoamnrs came in from Pawtuoket, two of which were held in reserve to extinguish other fires of which tliere wore several set by flying sparks, and one waa stationed in Eddy street, rear of the City Hall, wlioro it worked for hours. Tho Rough and.Ready company, from Johnston brought in 800 f eoti of hose throe miles in 14 minutes and was posted in the Root building where they held tho flames In chock. At 4.10 the Dorraiico St. VrnU X'eU, injuring several firomon, among whom was Orrlu S. MowiT of hook and ladder 3. 'I^e was,carried'by his fellow firemen into the atoro of Jqrome Kennedy. & Oo, where he was cared for until the ambula.noe arrived, when he was taken to the BUoiie Isjund Hospital. His headjwas oruah.Wand'iilie leg Was broken, and ho cannot survive. � The saipo. wall was reported to have btirle'd �H unknown man who stops!-olose to a showii'lndow and directly und^r. wie.spot. covered a. minute later with a grisat depth of marble, iron and brick. On the west of tho Barnaby building was tlie tliree-story H. T. Root building with fi'eestono front, and Its root was IB or,20 feet lower than the Dorranoo building. This wall projecting above tho Root bit Id-ingwas tho first to fall, and It crashed in t le roof of the Root building, wreck ng 110 workshop of the Plymouth Rook: Pants Compiiny in the upper story. The roof of tho Barnaby building fell in soon after, and as floor after floor gave away it was seen that tho long east wall fronting on'Dorrance et. was likely to fall,' Ono hook and ladder truck was taken out ^ overheated pipe and that the flames 'com'' muidoated to a waste paper box in the base-ittieiit, thence to tho packing oases and the atoCk, � A cash boy first discovered the flames }n the inaln floor. It was nearly 5 o'clock before the flames were under control, having been confined to the one block, and at 0 o'clook tonight a'l smouldering pile of ruins marks the spot, /rhe Barnaby contpany will open a tem- porary store 'at once, 'stocking it from brahones in Boston, Bridgeport and Kansas OlW.' Tho loss, it is estimated at a lato hour tonight, will aggi'egate fully $000,000, with a total insurance of about $37S,000. Bussell Hftuse Destroyed, . PoETSMouTH, N. H..
