o'clock to-nluht a flro broke out In tlio bur-
racks nt tlio citadel anil It Ims extended
COD yards , enveloping nearly nil tlio buildings
facing thu entrance. There Is great consternation -
nation among the residents In tlto neighbor
hood.
112:30 : a. m. All the available forces In the
battery nre olowlnt , no buildings to prnv cut
the lire from reaching the mngnzmo and a
trumpeter Is sounding the signal of danger
for all hamlfttn keep clear.
The llro originated In the cavalry sta blca
on the northeast corner of the citadel , ahd all
the horses , twenty-six In number , worn either
burned or suffocated. The lire from thli
point spread to the western portion of
the frontage , nnd speedily inudo Its
way toward the tnain entrance. The
, fire made Its way across the main entrance

ing In the total destruction of the stock of
dry jroods and clothing ol Cowhlck & Whit-
comb , and the damaglnc of their building to
Iho extent of 310,000. The cause ot the fire
Is a mystery , there being no lights or llros In
the building. The llamcs spread so lapidly
to all parts of the building that attempts tn
two tliu stock were futile , and the lircmen
direct thelrcd efforts toward savinqsiirtouinl-
Ing proportv. The loss on the building nnd
fixtures is 816,000 , coveied by an Insurance ol

KIIIE , I'n. , July 0. The terrible Ore which
fiwrpt the little town of Clarendon on Mon
day was supplemented to-day by another
Visitation which threatened to wipe out what
Remained of the village. A strong wind
fanned the smoldering pllos Into flame and
turned them toward the town again. The
oil well of Patrick Connors was first seized
upon and the flames lapidly communicated
to the buildings of others until live derricks
tend fixtures wcro a solid mass of llamcs.
Assistance came from Warren and
succeeded , after a terrible Unlit , In gaining
the mastery over the lire , tlio burning oil
which covered the ground making the strug
gle a severe ono. A count of the buildings
destroyed Monday foots up 281. There are
tut sixteen lumsrs left In town. Ono liun-
ured tents , which were sent by tlio governor ,

ELEVENTH STREET VIADUCT ,
The Structure Found to Bo in a Verj
Shabby Condition.
WAS THERE A JOB IN IT1
Insufficient Police Protection In the
City of Onmlm Ijoonl Notes
Ticked Up Ity Llco
Kcportcrs.
The Rlcrnnth Street Viaduct
No wonder people who cross the
Eleventh street vlmluct tnuo the roadwnj
in preference to the sldownlk. Anyone
who will take the trouble to visit tiuil
causeway will understand that they have
the best of reasons for doing so. While
not exactly dangerous , the condition ol
tlio sidownlk is not only unsightly but
such us to render it very Inconvenient
ntul annoying to pedestrians.
The specifications provide that tin
walk shall bo made of oak plank sucurolj
fastened to a layer of pine plank. In tin
first place the pinu plank lack about r
foot of uxtoiidliig to the inglilu hand-rail
as. they should do , nnd the oak plant
which cover the space are from a liulf
noh to an inch and a half apart in main
places and thorc is no part of the wall
whore they nre lilted together in the
smooth and workmanlike manner pro
vidcd for by the contract with the city.
Hut , perhaps Iho worst tuatnrc
about the walk is that these oak
plank nro warped so that thoj
stick up along the entire length of tin
viaduct , from a half Inch to an inch and
thrcu-fourths. Small round nails were
used to fa.stun these plank to the pine
boards beneath and the result has been
that by the warping of thu oak plank
these nails have been pnllud out. A man
with but moderate exertion can pull the
boards entirely loose. The pine plank ;
beneath instuml of being fastened to the
girders with iron clamps are fastened
with very small rounet nails. Those ) were
driven through the boards and clamped
over the umrlus of the sidewalk btringors ,
The boards huvo since shrunk anil the
nails , in most instances , do not touch the
stringurs at all.
The inside hnnd rails have no braces ol
Any kind to keep thorn steaely and can be
shaken back and forth for n distance ol
tour or live inches on either side , without
scarcely any exertion at all. The fasten
ing of these inside railings to thu buttoi
posts is very clumsy and imperfect
In fact , about half of the
plates by which these rails are intended
to bo fastened nre not screwed up ai
all.
all.Tho
The painting of the viaduct has boor
done in a most hasty and slovenly way
In mnny places , there nro spots whore
the iron has no more paint on it thai :
when it came from the foundry where it
was cast. The under parts of the blgtoi
chords of the middle span are not
painted at all. The lattice work makci
the job of painting this part of this structure
turo somuwhat tedious , nnd then the
chords aru so high up thu painters proba
bly thought it would nuver bo noticet
anyhow. Hut a UEI : reporter who visitor
thu bridge the othur day not only found
this to bo the case , nut on very super
liuisil ox ami nation discovered the most
shameful botch work throughout thu en
tire structure.
In most cases no attempt had beer
made to conceal these defects
from the public eye. Where the stair
wnys are fastened to the iron girders
however , in several instances , thu hole ;
originally drilled for the rivets were
found to bo in the wrong place , and uo
rows were drilled near them , thus ma
terially weakening the structure. The
stairs have been so fastened as to covei
up these defects , and they are oifly no
lined when one's attention is called tc
them.
The painling of the viaduct is not onlj
incomplete , but shows evidence of haste
nnd carelessness throughout tlio entire
Blructure. This is especially true of
these parts which would not ordinarily
bo noticed by people driving or walking
across the viaduct. The angles of tin
portals which join tlio bailer posts at 11
distance of from forty to fifty loot from
the floor of the viaduct are tilled with
sanel to the depth of from nn incli
nnd n half to two inches. This ha1
been painted over and no attempt made
to cluan it out. The ends of thu knee
braces supporting these porials are in
some instances hanging loose by the
screws and not lightened up at all.
Thu main end posts of Iho hand rail
way nro very insecurely fastened , the
bolls u ed to fasten them being much
smaller than the holes into which they
should tit.
Thu big gas lamp posts which arc
bolted to the loose boards arc so insecure
that any ono nan .shako thorn hard
enough lo break oyery pane of glass in
the lamps.
The iron shoos on the abutments in
which the sidewallc stringers work have
not been fastened so us to allow the
stringers snUicioiit play. As a result the
lateral motion eiven to the stringers by
loads passing over the brielge
and the expansion produced bj
the Dheat have itriven the slringers
against the shoes with such force as tc
crack the joints in the stones of the north
abutment , and where cast-iron shoot
should have been used lo fasten the
longitudinal girders lo the facing of the
south abutment , pieces of scrap iron
have been pressed into Iho service
These are a few of Iho defects in the
structure. Many more coulu bo meiv
tioned.
On the whole , if it were not for the
newness of tlio mosl of the material used
the Kid von th street viaduct would loot
more like a dilapidated rcjicof ihu middle
ages than n structure winch woa bcgui
only a year ago.

Trio Councltmcu Militating Agnlnsi
the City's Wolfnre.
The opposition of the council to Chief
Seavoy and Iho board of police commls
sioncrs is militating greatly against the
interests of the city. The aldurmcn re >
fuse to pay Ihu police and lire depart
mcnts , and also refuse lo increase Hie
number of policemen. Not content witli
this they hamper the pe > lice chief as mucl
as possible. Omaha has a population ol
nt least 110,000 souls , with a torrilory six
miles long by foursquare. To patrol this
territory there are thirty-flvo po
licemen , including ollicors. The usual
estimate in big cities is ono policemar
for every 800 or 1.000 population , Thi <
should 21 vo Omaha fit leasl ninety patrol
men. Instead of tuift number , Om-iht
had but twelve po Gjumcm on duty lasi
night. For all Iho vuit turritory only i
dozen ollicors were detailed. Ono police
man , Ollicer liloom , had all the
territory to cove ? ' between Twelfti
and Ninth streets ori Fnrnam and llar-
ney , and between ' 'Karanm and Jonc. <
streets on Te-nth. 'J'l\is , \ territory Miouli !
take at least four uoJicomon. The turri
tory includes the most ; important beat-
in Iho cily , and if a'big ' burglary or anj
oilier aflair had happened in the soclion
Iho ollicer could not have been blamed il
he had heard nothing 9f it until next day ,
Uusiuess men are beginning lo feel that
their interests are not sufficiently
cuardeel , and are beginning to place the
blame whuro it bolonfts on the city
council.
