Page 22 The Hutchinson New* Wednesday, October C, 1171 Still Debate The Cause of Chicago Fire CHICAGO (AP) - One hundred years ago a great fire burned Chicago to the ground, but the calamity was only a temporary setback to the city's growth. The fire started during the late evening hours of Oct. 8, 1871. Before it burned itself out two days later, it had caused more than $196 million in damages, turned nearly 2,000 acres of land into ashes and rubble, killed 300 persons and left another 90,000 residents homeless. The city leaders, headed by Mayor R.B. Mason, wasted little time setting in motion efforts to rebuild the city, then| the nation's fourth largest. Within four years there was| hardly a trace of fire damage. Historians agree the fire started in a South Side cow barn owned by Patrick and Catherine O'Leary but the actual cause has been argued for the past century. Popular belief Is that the O'Leary's skittish cow kicked over a lantern. Others claim a drunken neighbor, who fell into the lantern, or boys smoking in the hay-filled barn were responsible. Shipping Center Chicago in that era was a fast-growing center for river and lake shipping, and rail roads brought more traffic. Located on the edge of the prairie, the city was busy retail and wholesale trade center of 350,000 residents. Wood was the cheap building material of the day. It was everywhere. Some 57 miles of streets were paved with wooden blocks, and another 561 miles of sidewalks were made of wood. It had been a long, dry summer prior to the fire. By early October the area as far north as Wisconsin had been without rain for 75 days. The Chicago Fire Department's 216-man force kept a 24- hour watch stationed atop the courthouse in the business area. Less than 24 hours before the fire started, Chicago firemen answered an alarm at a mill on the South Side in the vicinity of the O'Leary home. Despite a 25-mile-an-hour wind, the fire was confined to a four-city, b'ock area. j The exhausted firemen re-' turned to their stations 18 hours | later, but then the real blow came. Shortly after 9 p.m. on Oct. 8, the courthouse lookout spotted the Leary fire. Whipped by high winds, the flames headed north destroying the central business district, all major hotels, governmental buildings, newspaper offices, stores, nearly all railroad depots, many churches, mills, manufacturing and lumber facilities, banks, and stables. Most of the persons trapped in the downtown area fled to safety over bridges to the west and north. Sweeping across the Chicago River, the fire burned eight bridges and three viaducts. Soon the Chicago Water Works was afire. Its pumping facility at Michigan and Chicago avenues was gutted. The facility and its tower remain today among the few surviving prefire landmarks. Dr. Justin Hayes, who operated a downtown clinic on the north side of the river, told reporters the next day that most couldn't believe what was happening. "Wages were low in those days," he said, "and people soon became terrified lest their hard-earned belongings be swept from them. They began to stack their most valuable •hin«s in curbstone piles ready to move th?m if necessary. "Finallv the fire jumped the south branch of the Chicago River and only then did the panic-stricken families gather then* children and bundles and start hysterically toward the northeast beaches of the lake "The terrified people ran in f^ont of the pursuing flames, The red glare of the sky, the roaring noise of the fire and their cries drove them out of all reason as they poured through the downtown streets.'

(AP) — When the warm Chinook winds Wow in from the southwest, sweeping the snow from the rolling sage and grass lands, the December skies above Immigrant Gap are filled with soaring eagles. In years past, upwards of SO bald and golden eagles migrating south could be seen daily funneling into the gap nine miles west of this valley town. But this winter, says Dr. Oliver Scott, "I wouldn't be surprised if our eagles are down to half." Poison baits and gunfire have killed scores, perhaps hundreds, of the rare birds. The eagles are only one species of wildlife caught in a crossfire between ranchers and conservationists over the government's death-to-predators program. The Sierra Club and Defenders of Wildlife charged in a lawsuit that the widespread campaign against predators throughout the Western rangelands also has killed black -fDot- ed ferrets, ringtails, kit foxes, wolverines, California condors, rough-legged hawks and burrowing owls. Innocent Victim Like the bald and golden eagles, the species are innocent victims of a campaign to prevent crop and livestock destruction by killing such prey-seek* ers as coyotes, bears, mountain lions, bobcats and black-tailed prairie dogs. The animals are killed in a variety of ways. Chunks of., meat treated with deadly compound 1080 (sodium fluor- acetate) are placed at strategic points. Lard-coated strychnine pellets are scattered over thousands of acres. One helicopter pilot testified before a Senate subcommittee that more than 700 bald and golden eagles were gunned down from his aircraft in skies over Colorado and Wyoming. But such instances of gunfire deaths are believed minimal. Y Swimmers Advanced Making one or more swim advancements this summer were 172 YMCA swimmers.
