Teloiih^a Nj'a. 21 und (4. d7m The building occupied by Mr, Win, Sleia aa a hurdware store on Second street, south side, between Piasa and State atreeto, wai entirely destroyed by fire about 8 o'clock thh morning. A number of men, under tbe direction of Capt. True Dodge,were engaged at the hour mentioned in loading the steamer Hudson with flour from Stanard's mill and were among the first to discover that the building was In a blaze. The alaiin was given by tbe Hudson's whistle and In a short time locomotive whUtlen, bells and human voices joined in the chorus until pandemonium reigned and thousands of people wnre aroused from their slumbers. About the time that tho Bre was seen by tbe' men on tho levee, Mrs. Geo. D. Hayden, whose residence is just across tbe street /romMr. Siem'n store, heard,the noise of falling glass and saw an unusual I'ght. bhe aroused Mr. Uayden ami when he went 10 his window he found the panes of glass so hot that be could scarcely lay his hajd on them. Tbe burning building was then a seething miss of fire inside but the flame., had not yet broken through tbe roof. In the meantiuje Mr. Harden got out a few sections of hsse that he had in read* Iness in his establishment, but the nozzle was missing. Before the firemen were on band, within about five Blnuteh nfter tbe alarm, the Immense building collapsed, tbe supporting columns and wall* gave way aud the whole structure fell inwardly with such a noUe that many thought that an explosion bad taken place. It was a complete wreck, crushed out of all form, a mere mass ol iiricks and mortar. Stinard's ware, house, which adjoined Mr. 8i«m'<i store •m the west, was badly damaged, the division wall being destroyed, a large partof thereof and a portion of the rtoor cru.-bed by falling debris. Tbe liieman did good work in saving tbe warehouse from the flumes after the brick building had fallen. Mr. SiemV store contained a large *tock of goods, three stories and the cellar being used for storage. On tbe upper floors and - in the cellar were •voodtn material for cartlages, wagonc md buggies, patent wheels and other articles that tended to make the building a furnace of intense heat.whici, Accounts for the total collapse which took place so suddenly. In Gov.Stanard's warehouse were 600 barrels of flour a large proportion ol which were damaged by water, smokt- and heat. Fortunately several hundred barrels of flour had just been taken out, the work of shipping being in progress when tbe tire broke out. The insurance was as follows: The building, which was the property ol Messrs. Toppiog Bros., was insured with Rudorshausen & Sonntag, in the Guardian of London, Eng., «5,000; Kite Infurnrce Association, London, $;l,000j also on the stock $2,000 in the City of lx>ndon. McKinney & Hewitt had t2,000 on the stock and $1,000 on furniture and futures m the Home, ol New York ; and $1.000 in the Fire As. tociation of Philadelphia. Wblpple & Smiley $1,000 in the Hartford; and *UOO in the Franklin of Philadelphia, •in ihe stock. Mr. MtPike has $1,000 •m the stock in the London and Liverpool. The total insurance on the building was $8,000; on the stock, furniture and fixtures, $9,600. It is estimated that this will not cover the loss. McKinney & Hewitt had $2,600 on the stock in Stanard's warehouse,$1260 in the Germania,$1260ln the American. I'hu warehouse was insured for $1,000 in iho Traders of Chicago, $1,600 in the Illinois Mutual, with Mr. Frank Fisher. Kudurshsunen & Sonntag also had m- •uranco on the warehouse stock of $1.006 in the Pho3nix,$l,600 in the City >'t London. Mr. Slem was away from home on a business trip and received a telegram u Girard thU morning conveying the •istounding news that hU store was H heap of ruins. UP came home on tb.- 9:80 a. in. tram and found the newt- too true. He bad been making preparations to immediately commence the *oik of connolldatlng hi* twoHores by removing thu goods from ihn room he ..uuupies on Third btreel to the building |u>t destroyed. The burned building was a large haiidaonw, dmiblu brick, three stories high, and built for the hardware trade with cpecial reference to strength and durability. It wa» one of the flncn and most complete store buildings in the city, and un ornament to Second atieet, It WftS tilled with a complete ctor-lt of hardware, cutlery, agricultural implements, carnage and w«g«n material, etc., all of which U a total loss, and the value of which will (ar exceed iho insurance.

Treasurer of the 'Colorado Milling and Mining Co."at Black Hawk, Co)., turns out to be a fraud. He in the man who wrote to .Dr. Garvin some weeks ago Dialing that an unknown man was kill* ed in one of their mines on February 1, that in his pocket was found the address and name of the Doctor, that the dead man had 2day-i' pay due him(tmonot- in£ to f6). that the funeral expenses were f 18, which the writer, who signed tbe name of "P. J.' Marsh" paid—that the dead man lelt a trunk full of cloth- tng, etc., a revolver, a bhot gun, a eold watch and chain, Pto., etc., all valued at not less than flOO, and that If ibe party addressed would remit the fuui paid by him over and above the'f 6 due the dead man, to-wit: f7, he would at onoe forward to him the effects oJ deceased. If not acawered by Mirob 1, said effects would be sold to tbe highest bidder. The Doctor of course did not "bite" but sent the letter to a friend in Denver, and to-day he received a copy of the Rooky Mountain News exposing the swindle. Marsh, whose real name is J. H. Nevatt, proprietor of a second hand store in Denver, engineered the scheme, had Ietter»beadd printed and wrote letters all over the country. He received numerous replies, enclosing 47,00 each, and was living in clover when the P. O. inspectors dropped on his game and he is now behind the bars.
