Coroner Wagner has completed his investigation of the disaster connected with the Bow- en-Merrill fire, which occurred on March 17 and which resulted in the killing oi twelve firemen. The verdict in each of the eases, twelve in number, was alike, with the exception that the deaths did not all occur on the same day. The find- ing was as follows: "Anthony Voltz came to his death March 1890, through injuries re- ceived from falling timbers and brick at the Bowen-Merrill fire while in the dis- charge of his duty as a member of the fire department, the building collapsing after the fire was under control. The Bowen-Merrill building was constructed at different periods, having been en- larged to accommodate an increased Stock and weight on a foundation not so intended by its original builder, the changes and additions culminating in a superstructure depending in part for its support upon adjoining buildings equally faulty. Building experts and owner declared on oatb. they would not now erect such a building. The fire, while the immediate agent, was not of itself sufficient to cause the collapse. I find that the building was of faulty con- struction." DISASTER AND DEATH. Extensive Conflagrations In the Chief City of lietweea Cniuese and Dutch Troop.s.
