Pusey of Delaware placing the Secretary of the Commonwealth on a salary of $10,000 finely polished Iron patterns per annul Aud the insurance commissioner upon a salary of $8,000 tier annul and abolishing All fees in the two offices were reported favourably from committee yesterday morning the stove works was the scene of a destructive Fin monday. For an hour or More the Fate of the prosperous and steady running Plant Hung trembling in the balance that it was not destroyed was due solely to the Good management the Well directed and heroic efforts of the firemen. The fire Ali undid in sensational features. To begin with it was located in the part of the Plant in which extraordinary precautions Are taken to avoid fire the portion in which Are stored the patterns needed for the various lines of stoves and furnaces Mamita turd Aud which represent a value of at least $75, xxx. To protect this por Tiou of the Plant in ease lire should break out elsewhere about the place the doors on the outside Are lined with Sheet Iron while the windows Are protected with shutters also lined on the outside with Iron. The very precautions adopted to exclude the fire from the patterns yesterday served to confine the flames to that portion of the buildings and probably prevented wholesale destruction. The fire broke out a very few minutes after 7 of clock. William Linker the shipper was Busy in the first floor of the warehouse Wien he saw a Sheet of flame pouring into the building from the first floor of the Brick Annex on the second and third floors of which Are stored the patterns. Quick As thought lie slammed the Large double door shut and gave the alarm of fire. Tie next moment tin office sent in an alarm to the Washington fire company by Telephone. When the fire was discovered the d. L. Amp w. Switch engine was at the stove works and it was the very first to sound the alarm whistling loud and Long. The import of the shrill whistle was at oreo understood Aud when the next moment the familiar whistle of the stove works took up the alarm the Fin was easily located even by a a eople in the Remote parts of town. The Washington Hose company was situated conveniently near. Another favourable was that a Good Many Meliers of that conic Wiy an employed at the stove works and Are not Only acquainted with the ins and outs of the place hut yesterday were right on the ground ready for action. As soon As the fire was discovered the stove works team was sent Gal tie a Wash test a Hose House Aud in a few minutes eau e dashing Back with the Hose Carriage loaded Down with an abundance of Hose. The Goodwill How company was a close second its Carriage loaded with Hose lie ing brought Over by the team of the Hanover brewing company. The two other companies were soon on the rest House of the fire department on the whole being remarkably prompt indeed. By the time the firemen arrived the flames had enveloped nearly one half of the lower Story and had burned through the floor above and was gaining considerable headway in the second Story right among the patterns. The firemen Many of whom were employees and familiar with conditions realized that extreme care would have to in exercised in fighting the flames if any attempt was to he made to save i the valuable patterns. Every Pecau j Tion would have to in taken to prevent a draught. But Here another difficulty presented itself. The burning Woodwork was All of Pine and the smoke in the closed building was a dense Black volume in which no human being could live and yet to play in through the windows with the Hose smashing the Glass would be to admit a current of air that would hurry the flames along on their career of destruction and after All would give the firemen Only a questionable advantage. It was considered a safer plan to carry the Hose into the building facing the smoke As Long As the men could stand it. One gang relieving the other As fast As they Felt themselves being overcome by the dense smoke which was every two or three minutes. At one time four Hose were playing on tin buildings two attached to the fire Ping recently installed East of the Plant and two to the old plug in the Yard West of the. Plant. Such heroic work in the face of Sulci obstacles has never been witnessed in Danville. Relay after relay of men would drag the Hose into the burning building Only to be driven out again blinded and choking after a few minutes in the dense sin be. Their persistence however brought its Reward the flames were checked Aud finally wholly extinguished with Only a minimum of damage wrought. A visit to the works monday revealed the Kril in which the Plant stood during the fire. About one half a if the Woodwork on the first floor is nearly wholly destroyed and will have to be rebuilt along with a portion of the floor and some of the Woodwork on the second Story. Another minute and the flames would have been among the patterns which Are stored mostly about the Middle and the Northern end of the second floor. As it is the delicate patterns Are badly damaged. In a Good Many instances the follow boards Are burned in others they Are soaked with water and Are War red while the an rusting where drenched with water or Are covered with a thick Sticky substance Deji sited by tie smoke. There Are hundreds of patterns All of which will have to in gone Over the damaged Fol John Swanger and miss Carrie Bill Meyer of Milton Swient sunday at the Home of or. Aud mrs. George a.

Tin referred to was approved on tin 20th a Lay of april a. D. 1905. Notwithstanding the enactment of this meritorious legislation it is a notorious fact that some of the streets in our town have had Wagon la it a is of ashes containing nails broken dishes and tin cans deposited on them evid Eutzly fair the purpose of till aug up a Low place in such streets. We think the town should have a due regard of a or the Law and be possessed of More civic Prith than to i use a prohibited article fair Street material. This is not intended to criticise but simply to suggest what we believe to be for the betterment of our town.

The matter of licenses therefore tomorrow will be very easily disposed of and the session of court need not necessarily occupy much time. The application of George f. Oyster for distillery License which has been in the column for Many years past is absent from the list this year. The reason assigned is that the distillery which has been a lauds a near Washingtonville for so Long is going out of business owing to the changed conditions which makes it impossible fora Small Plant of its kind to compete with the Large distilleries that have grown up in recent years.
