H., Visited by Serious Blaze Through the Town Sunday. MUCH PROPERTY LOSS Nashua, N. H., May 5. —The boutheastern section of this city was laid in ruins by fire yesterday. At least one hundred and twenty-five houses, a number oflndus- trial plants and a church were destroyed before the flames ;. were brought under control last night. More than five hundred persons were made homeless and many families lost all their belongings as well. Fire officials estimated the to- total .loss at 52,000,000. The fire started in a wooden bridge across the Nashua river shortly after three .o'clock yesterday afternoon. It spread through the thickly settled residential part of Nashua, fannned by a forty mile an hour northwest wind. Fire companies were, called from neighboring cities and towns in Newhampshire and Massachusetts. Three companies of militia were called out to aid the firemen and police in-the fire area. From the Boston and Maine railroad bridge, where the fire started, the path of destruction was comparatively narrow for a distance of about a quarter of a mile. It then spread out until at its farthest end, the southeast outskirts of the city, it was fully as wide as it was long.; As If determined to have prey, even when buildings no longer remained to he devoured, the flames jumped the Nashua river in this section and soon were raging through a grove of pine trees. Those hardest hit, perhaps, were the employes * of Proctor Brother's barrel factory and the White Mountain Freezer 'Company, who lost their places of employment as well as tfieir homes. These two plants, employing about four hundred persons^ were razed as were the Hill Coal Company plant, the Nashua Building Company and the lumber yards of the large American Box and Lumber Company, thousands of feet of wood being" destroyed. • Is Dota* Jitcely.

Board Says Wrong .' Impression Exists in This Country. <• MOST DRINK "DRY" Washington, May 5 .-l-The impression that nearly all ' congressmen, particularly ."dry" congressmen, drink liquor is untrue, the Methodist board of temperance, prohibition anjd- public morals declared yesterday. Members, of the Senate and House, to the vast majority, are total' abstainers, the statement said, i ! "And a considerable number of wet congressmen do . not take a drink for months oh end," it explained. 'There are - some elderly men who became accustomed to alcoholic liquors back in the days of SchOomaker's and the Capital bar and,who find it very, very difficult to • refrain entirely from intoxicants now. t "Such men deserve a certain measure of sympathy. But a young congressman,'wet or drj4 who drinks, simply gives evidence that his sworn word doesn't mean much to~ him."
