Through the night of fire the wind
bore in from the southeast. Early In
the morning, jutt before the dawning
of day, the wind completely buxed the
compass and settled into a heavy blow
from the northwest.
The Independent Elevator, ownea
by the Chicago Great Western rail
road, was In imminent danger, but
withstood the flames.
The loss cannot be stated with abso
lote accuracy. So far as Is known the
chief losses are:

elevator and the flames spread
from there. The other buildings
were Involved one after another,
and the high wind drove blazing

shingles and bits of wood over the
time more th-in a dozen fires were In
progress. It will amount to very nearly
$1,000,000. Most of the losses will be
covered by Insurance.
The fire was accompanied by many
spectaculp.. features. Explosions from
the Maney mill, caused by mill dust
and falling walls, caused much excite
ment. Blazing cascades of grain from
the elevators ran out onto the railroad
tracks and Impeded the work of the
firemen. Householders were busy ex
tinguishing the flames In their home
' All the tire apparatus ot Omaha and
South Omaha was called (lnto service,
but the only fight that could be made
was to prevent the flames spreading.
Nothing could be done towards saving
the burning buildings.
Only two slight accidents were re
ported, and no loss of life.

and I could see that It was burning
fiercely. The Under-like material waa
simply a mass ot flames.
"My first act waa to' try to reach the

"The fire made rapid headway In the
cooling room," said Bolser. "It seemed no
time at all before the entire first floor waa
ablaze with the flamea quickly spreading
to the north wing and the stories above.
"It was scarcely a halt hour before the
blazing torches were carried by the wind
to the freight cara in 'the yards and in a

"Fire broke out in the Maney mill within
a few minutes after the flamea communi
cated to the freight cara. Windows In the
Maney mill melted In the fierce heat and
glowing embers were carried Into the Under-like
Interior of the building. Within a
fw momenta the Nye-Schnelder-Fowler
elevator, the Maney mill and the frleght

"I can assign no other reason for ths
origin than that of crossed electric wires,"
said Wyrlck, the night manager. "When I
opened the big door to the cooling room I
faced a blazing furnace. If spontaneous
combustion caused the blaze I do not think
It would have gained such great leeway."
August Netzel, K09 Oak street, and his
sister were among the first of the neigh
boring residents to see the flamea. Netzel
sounded an alarm to the Omaha fire de
partment by telephona
"My first attention to the blaze was at
tracted by what seemed to be a bonfire
at tlie northeast corner of the building,"
said the sister ot August Netzel. "It was
on ths ground and In no time had com
municated to the building. I am sure
there were flamea cn the ground before f

ground by Miss Ne'.zel was burning grain

Streams of water that played upon the
blaze had about as much effect as would
aster from a sprinkling can.
From that time on the firemen centered
their attention to freight cars In ths yards
and to nearby residences. Houses on South

A series or1 contests wltfl fires that threat

main conflagration took 'place' along the
west and north aides of tha doomed terri

at times Ignited, to ba saved by hasty work

The home' of Jerry Bond, 8016 South
Twenty-eighth street, was tha most en
dangered, by lta proximity to tha heart of
the Nye.Schneider-Fowler fire. This home
was the first to be emptied. ' Furniture was
tossed out Into the street, while the deni
zens of the poultry, roosts were rudely
awakened to be carried squaklng through
the tumult into tha front yard.

Likewise, too,' the family of John Beoha
spent a night In the open all- with his Lares
and Penates huddled around him. Tha Becha
home was not in such grave danger as the
Bond, but there were great masses of flame
within short distance and the rain ot sparks
on sheds and outhouses kept everyone in a
state of agitation which lasted for hours.
Next door is the home of W. F. Green
nd that household, too, gathered lta
goods and chattels In the front "yard and
prepared to move them at a minute's no

there was genuine cause, also Included the
Emll Komatke house 'next south from the

All these houses are on the brink of the
hill, which falls sheer nearly 100 feet.
In the threatened row stood the home of

of C. F. Kruger or Auburn, 8. D. Neither

Flames, rich ruddy red, rising between
belches of heavy smoke white with the

in less than a halt hour the entire build
Ing waa sheathed In a coat of fire. Tongue
of fire reached 100 feet Into the air. over
an area ot nearly four blocks, when ttv
fire became general.
The vast Column of superheated air rls
ing from the canyon-llbe hollow In whlcl,
the buildings stood created a draft that
augmented the effects of the stiff breeze
from the southeast. In this rising current
masses of burning matter from the heart
of the furnace Into which the sheetiron
buildings were transformed were sucked
like cartridges Into a pneumutic tube
falling high Into the air column above to
a point where again the prevailing wind
became tha chief component of force, these
floating brands were tossed out over the
city over a district of ten blocks. Countlees
minor flrea started among the dwellings
lying to the -north' of the fire. In this
danger cone householders and spectators
fought to extinguish the fires that started
from the sparks. It was ceaseless vigil.
Bxploslon tbe Climax.
As the fire gained force it brcame more
spectacular, reaching a climax when the
explosion in the Maney mills plant came.
Tons of red hot brick and flaming sheets
of lumber were thrown 100 feet up to burst
into a cloud Of tclntilatlng sparks.
The glare of the mighty conflagration
waa reflected in the sky for many miles.
Thousands Ot the curious lined the bluffs,
viaducts, rooft and other points of van
tage around the tire zone. Automobiles
and carriages poured In from distant
suburbs bearing parties of sightseers who
lingered long. Among these Indifferent
spectators mingled anxious fo.k whose
home and fortunes were involved In the de
vastation going on before them.
Gaa from Uraln Helps.
Seething heaps ot frying grain generated
volumes of gas and vapor which rose
with the roar of a little Vesuvius to be
whipped Into ribbons by the wind. The
racing streamers ot vapor reflected back
the glara from the pit of distraction be
low. 'Down along the tracks that wove in
and out among tha burning building stood
lines ot box cars which soon caught up
the flames to become ready avenuves of
further communication. Trains of fire
raced down the yards to pointa where in
dividual .fights could oe made on the cars.
Switching crews arrived too late to save
Whistles from tie answering engine
signals screamed, through tha roar of tha
flames and crashing walls.
Hoarse cries of the firemen and fire
fighter pierced the crumbling undertone of
the thousands of voices of tha spectators.
Fire engines raced and puffed and careened
along .tha streets approaching the fire zone
in the desperate struggle for water they
could not get.
Jke battle was one, but, hopeless,, from
11:30 o'clock, when the alarm came, until
the last of the buildings In the avenue ot
fire fell it was a battle, but a losing one.
Efforts to quell the tire, once It gripped a
building, were futile.
Independent Elevator Stands.
Standing stern and bold against the seeth
ing fields of fire loomed the heights of the
Independent Elevator company's plant, a
fireproof structure of steel. Within the
heated grain In. the storage compartments
stewed and steamed, pouring forth fumes
at the crevlcea and laps of the expansive
wall. Each ot the long row of cylindrical
storage tanka became a cauldron, but the
big elevator stood like a castle staunchly
standing while lta besiegers fretted about.
The walls of the grim black elevator
reared themselves in contrast made con
spicuous by the flashes of light that came
with the enlivening of the fire by falling
walls and exploding tanka.
The tall hulk of the Nye-Schnelder-Fow-ler
elevator stood long after the works of
destruction had spent its final ruin. The
lingering walla gave way gradually from
the top after the caving ot the roof. A
aeries of grain compartments ripped open,
the one after the other in tha progress of
the crumbling. As each gave way cascades
ot thousands of bushels of burning grain
poured down the sides to feed the con
Bhowera of stars and weird fantastic
figures formed themselves in tha wild toss
ing of the fire.
Firemen In Great Danger.
Tottering walls came near to bearing
down a squad of firemen to death In the
fight at the point of origin. Boring In
with their hose lines a squad of the fire
laddies had worked up close to the west
side of the elevator when sheets ot flaming
lumber came down with the weakening of
the undermined roof,
James F rush a, company No. 10, Omaha,
and John Uallaghan, company No. li, were
eaught by the deadly avalanche as they
started on their none too esrly retreat at
the warning cry from the throng at a safe
distance above. They were both burned

shed where stood his master's horse and
buggy, but "Jlp" stood his ground aa a
brave dog should. He stayed by the buggy
when his master led the frightened, plung

When Bolser returned to release the little
terrier from hla vigil It waa too late. The
dog had gone down at his pott.
Bolser stood long looking Into the ruins
of the elevator. "Glad I saved the horse,
but that was an awful good dog," was the
only comment ha had to make. He bit down
hard on his pipestem and turned away. .

The fall of the west end removed the
Bond residence out of the Immediate danger
zone, but the firemen continued on the
root to throw water on it. Early in the
night all the furniture had been removed.
Palls of water were used for soaking the
roofs of tha other cottages on the west
side of the blsze.
AsslsUnt Chief Dlneen said that If there
had been sufficient water pressure the
Maney mill could hava been aaved. "It
was set on fire," be said, "by aparka from
the . elevator, but we could not reach the
flamea on tha roof with the water."

the Intoxicating excitement of the a of
