THE SECOND GREAT
ANOTHER FIRE NEXT DAT 1 1
$3,030,000 Lost on Tuesday, and
- $60,000 on Wednesday X I
The fated city of Chicago was doom
ed to another ordeal by fire on Tues
day. The fire started at 4:30 p.m.,
on 4th Avenue, near 12th st, south
Chicago; at 12:10 M., the flames were
under control, but 25 blocks of houses
had been destroyed, and six millions of
The exact limits of the fire are as
follows: On Clarke street, where it or
iginated from near 12th street, for
about a block north on Fourth avenue
from near Taylor street to Harison
street; Third avenue from near Peck
court to Harrison on the west side,
and a block further on east side; on
State street from No. 509 near narmon
Court to 310 near Congress on the west
side, and to, the corner of Yan Buren
streets from on the east side: Wabash
avenue from No 452, near Peck Court
to No 267 near the corner of Van Bu
ren on the west side, and 29 1 on the
east side; Michigan avenue is burned
about one block, lying mostly between
Yan Buren aud Harrison streets.
The following are some of the prin
cipal losses: St. James Hotel, Reming
ton Empire Sewing Machine Company ;
E. Remington & Sons, guns and pistols
manufactory ; C C Charles, Limps and
The following are the hotels burned,
Atlantic Hotel, corner of Van Buren
and Sherman : Berg House, corner of
State and Harrison ; Michigan Aven
ue Hotel; Wabash House, Nos. 318
and 320 Wabash avenue ; St. James.
Churches Keehe-lath-Bria Sholom,
and Synagogue, 392 Wabash avenue;
First Baptist church 403 and 405
Wabash avenue; Jewish Synagogue
629 and 649 Wabash avenue.
The house of Horace White, of the
Tribunt was burned, and that of J. Y.
Scammon, formerly of the Inter-Ocean.
THE SECOND FIKE.
Another fire broke out about 4:30
o'clock Wednesday afternoon in the
northwestern part of the city, in the
vicinity of Milwaukee and Chicago
avenues; fifteen to twenty buildings
were burned. They are chiefly stores,
saloons and carpenter shops. A brisk
north-west breeze fanned the flames,
and the inflammable character of the
buildings soon assumed the proportions
of that of last night. But the fire de
partments were promptly on hand, and
by a vigorous battling of the flames,
they were finally subdued, with only
the less above stated.
Great excitement prevailed for a
time, as it seemed inevitable that the
flames would sweep towards the heart
of the city.
This fire occurred from 4 to 7 p. m.,
on Milwaukee avenue, between Sanga
mon and Spratt streets, destroying
about 25 houses, a majority of them
being frame shanties. The locality
was inhabited by the poorer classes of
Germans. The loss is probably about
800,000, and the insurance is not more
than one-fifth that amount.
OUR FIRST THROUH TRIP OYER
THE B. & M. OF NEBRASKA.
The Great Big West. A Hot Day.
Prairie till yon Can't Rest Uncle
Sara's I,and. Old Forts.- -Kearney
J unct ion. -Home.
Owing to the kindness of Mr. Geo.
Holdrege, the Editor of this paper re
ceived an invitation to accompany the
pay car over the B. & M. R. R in Ne
braska, on Wednesday and Thursday
of last week. Although living at the
terminus of, or along the road for
several years, we had never (before)
made a through trip, and confess hav
ing a good deal of curiosity to see the
wonderful country that all travelers
tell us has grown up West of Lincoln.
Our party consisted of Mr. Holdrege,
acting as conductor of the train ; Mr.
Taylor, Paymaster of the road ; Mac
Donold, assistant Paymaster; Calvert,
engineer, four ladies, invited guests,
the editor and wife. At Lincoln we
picked up Mr. Marquett, the attorney
for the road, and a very inform-a-ble
travelling gentleman indeed is Mr. M.,
also Mr. Dimock, clerk of the Land
Commissioner, Mr. A. Gorham.
At Ashland, on the Depot Platform,
we noticed a number of bales of tow
ready for shipment, showing that
another staple has been added to the
industry of Nebraska. Passing
Greenwood we saw the harvesters at
work for the first time this season, and
as they drove by on a pretty new red
"Marsh" with a notched and ribbon
bound shade over the heads of the
binders, our ladies all thought they
should like to turn Grangeressess at
once and the men concluded the high
est luxury of farming had at last come
round. Approaching Lincoln we
could not help but notice the large
fields of grain close to the town, al
most in the city limits, it seemed, and
the great advance made in the farming
region round about, where only a few
years ago not a house was to be seen
and certainly no wheat fields.
Twenty minutes to distribute a few
more greenbacks and we are off for
Don't that sound funny now, to have
us out on the Missouri bottom talking
about going west, yet so it is. -"
And now we strike, for us, a new
country, one we have heard much
about but never seen until this trip.
From Lincoln to Crete, the country
is rather broken and rough, not much
farming here, but mor on account of
the land being owned largely by spec
ulators, as we are told, than because
of the country. Out of the midst of
a sea of grass and hillocks, without
bush or shrub, bursts Crete, a beauti
ful vilLifre of one thousand inhabitant.!
and boasting of as good water lwer
as we often find in this State. We
were very much pleased and agreea
bly surprised at the appearance of
this place. It nestles, so to speak, in
an eddy of timber, fringing the banks
of the Blue and has such a clean thrifty
air of New England smartness that
we are really inclined to believe all
the good things ever written of it and
OUR "FO RTY."
One mile North of the town and in
the next section to the town site, we
are informed, lies that celebrated
forty acres drawn by the undersigned
for the best essay on Nebraska and
her Resources. Not being Boss Perkins
himself, we could not "hold" the train
long enough to plant our feet on some
essay soil or say we stood upon our
native, heath, but if this weather ever
lets up this editor proposes to become
better acquainted with the N. E. of
the N. E. qr." of Sec. 23, Township 8,
Range 4 EasCsome day.
FKOM CRETE TO FRIEXDVILLE,
a distance of 35 miles we pass over a
country so level that you could make
a huge billiard table almost anywhere
without grading. We pass Exeter and
stoped at Fairmount for dinner. Here
we found an old Lincoln friend, Mr.
Gaylord keeping the hotel and a very
good hotel he keeps too. Fairmount
calls itself 600 strong. Beyond this
point we passed one huge wheat field
that took the train some two minutes
to pass. Stopping every now and then
any where and everywhere that a gang
of men happened to be working on the
road, the novelty of travelling on a
railroad train as if it were a private
conveyance was a new sensation. To
the right of us, to the left of us we
pass white covered wagons, containing
the future homesteaders of the still
great West, or see their camps by the
road side .as we thundered along. The
road must have followed the great
divide between the Platte and Repub
lican, for it is almost as level as level
can be, and in many places as straight
as an arrow for miles.
Sutton is a very thriving town in
Fillmore county. We stopped here
some half hour to allow Mr. Marquett
to transact some business, and there
fore found time to look the place over
and run up in the Times oflice a mo
ment or two. A large colony of Rus
sians have settled in near this place
and their trade has helped it out won
derfully. Some nice buildings are go
ing up, one large store being built by
a Russian gentleman, has a fine stone
foundation, and will be in every way,
when completed, a first class store.
Harvard is a tasty little town, with
a very neat school house, in fact all
these towns have handsome school
houses and as they have been largely
built from taxation raised on railroad
and speculators lands, it is a common
joke of the railroad men to call them
B. & M. school houses. No matter
who built them now, they present a
very handsome appearance, and show
that the settlers were willing to use
their surplus funds, whatever their
source, for a good cause, the cause of
education and improvement.
Inland is a small town, in land, in
deed, as far as the eye can reach,
naught but the prairie meets the eye,
there is land enough in all conscience,
if that is all that is needed to make a
Hastings, at the crossing of the B.
& M. and St. Joe & Denver R. R.s is a
bright, nervous, lightning heeled, Ne
braska town, yesterday nothing, to
day a city with over 600 inhabitants,
good stores, hotels, a bank and every
other need and want of civilized life,
as far a3 we could see, except ice.
They were short on that Wednesday,
and if any of you remember what sort
of a day, Wednesday, July 8th was, you
can fancy what a lack of ice meant, to
a traveler about then.
They do say it was 118 in the shade,
but as there was no shade in sight and
the wind was blowing like a furnace
all the time, it must have been 140 in
We have been in the habit of calling
ourself an old settler, and yet kept say
ing all the time, wonderful, wonderful,
as we rode over this great country,
dotted and sprinkled with houses and
At Kenesaw we find another B. & M.
school house and our old friend and
newspaper man Stinchcomb has
a homestead near here, that '11 make
the place famous some day if nothing
shows one straight village street from
the cars. We know as a matter of
fact that Charley Walker and the
Land Office lives here, that it has a
large Republican Valley trade, and the
B. & M. immense stock yards for ship
ping and holding Texas cattle. It is
situated on the very edge of the old
Ft. Kearney Reservation, and on leav
ing the town we run through Uncle
Sam's land for ten miles. Near the
crossing of the Platte one can see where
old Fort Kearney stood to the left and
about three miles from the road, to the
right several miles off is old Kearney
Station, on the U. B. R. R where sup
plies were formerly left for the Fort,
and still ahead and to the left of this
It is almost night fall, the great blaze
and heat of the day is done, the cars
glide smothly over the six bridges of
the Platte, that Platte we left in the
morning two hundred miles south and
east of us, and the great, beautiful and
green expanse of prairie on the other
side tells us we are fairly on the bound
less, and oh, but so shorLtimo ago the
trackless ocean of thereat plains.
'Along the distant horizon the faint
and fainter spires of the telegraph
poles mark the line of the TJ. P., the
little cluster of buildings assume shape
and size and order, the heavens darken
over and as the first coming peal of
the much prayed for shower reverber
ates through the sky, the engine sets
up a feeble imitation; down breaks
and we are at Kearney Junction.
Our return trip and the thoughts it
suggested must be left for another
paper as the second great Chicago fire
must now receive our attention.
