KI'ISS OF THE UUMliU UVSJNLSS ULOCK.
The most destructive conflagration
that has visited Alliance for a long
time occurcd last Monday night. A
bout 10:30 o'clock smoke was discovered
issuing from the Rumer block and a
fire alarm was turned in. The A. V.
F. D. responded promptly and worked
heroically, but without avail so far as
saving that building was concerned.
The ground floor was occupied by the
B. F. Lockwood furniture store and
the Crystal moving picture theatre,
Some of the upstairs rooms had recent
ly been vacated; others were still occu
pied. Watkius and Fcagins had the
southwest corner room; next to them
was the office of the new real estate
firm, Dineen & Rubendall; and other
rooms were occupied by Drs. Copper
noil, & Petersen, ' osteopaths. , .
The fire started in the basement, evi
dently in the southeast corner, hut just
how seems to be a mystery. The fact
that a part of the building was occu
pied by a moving picture show has led
some to think that there may have been
some connection between that and the
origin of the fire, but such was not the
case. If the .fire had started on the
ground floor, instead of in the base
ment where it could not bo reached by
the fire-boys, there is little doubt that
it ouldniavc been extinguished before
much damage had been done.
The heaviest losses were thtro of the
buildingowned by V. D. Rumer and
the Lockwood furniture stock, both of
which we understand were pretty well
covered by insurance. The heaviest
blow falls on Burroughs & Schellak of
the Crystal theatre, as they had no
insurance- Their show had been so
conducted as to secure popular ap
proval and they were having a good
patrpnage, and tunny have been the
expressions of sympathy brought forth
bv their misfortune. They wired for a
new outfit and open tonight temporari
ly in the I'helau opera house.
The stock of (he Alliance Shoe Store
in theladjoining building was damaged
by yc4nd.wilL- be closed until the
insurance has been adjusted, which
will probably be on Saturday of this
week. The next store north, that of
the Famous Clothing Co., was not
damaged either by smoke or water.
The household goods of Dr. Hand,
who resides in rooms over the Alliance
Shoe Store, were badly damaged, but
as he carried $2,000 insurance his loss
will piobably not be so heavy.
OaRRyinG a stock as big: as
ours means a bigger
investment than aver
age stores like to assume,
but this isn't an average
store. Nothing about it is f
in the average it doesn't
average the ages of its cus
tomers and try to make one
selection of styles and fab
rics and fashions satisfy old
men and young men and
middle - aged men. The
young man wants his own
way and he wants it here.
