Might^Have Been Saved but for an Unfortunate Accident. Loss Estimated at About $65,000, With Insurance of $35,000. The main building of the old'Sml-th- son collejre, better knowni as the Ml- cliiu.'1's college, is a complete ruin, lire 'h-avi'iig- sw$i>t through the t'onr stories and lcrolcci''l'he Inner walls, blackened the outer walls which wove left stand- in?, .and caused destruction variously esikiiaited ait frois* ¥50,000 to .?C,ri,000. T-he debached building' to tho North of. the niailu bnlldlnpr, and the kitchen and drnki? room '.adjoining the main build- In? oil', the North were alone saved- from destruction. But for the unfortunate burs-tin?: of a flue in the boiler of the fire engine, the two lower, floors of the riwiiii building would have been saved from complete wreck, .and the loss would have T>ecn materially lessened. As it. is, a'.'few bare ami blackened walls, piles of "broken brick and {raping holes where windows were, is nil that is left of the (handsome old college build in p. The fire started in a small room in the northwest corner of the main build- i-n-fr, on Hie t.Mrd floor, used as a'stor- age' room for stationery. .T, B. Williams, janitor of 'the buildings, was working on the lawn, raklnp up the fallen leaves on th-e NorKi- s;<7e of the •campus, when he happened to glance up to the corner ol! the m^n bulldinc •a,nd saw smoke issuing treat) the windows. It w,is just 2:55 o'crocl: when tho lire was discovered, amd Mr. AVil- ll.ains imm-ediaitely gave tlio alarm. Tho s*xry-ftve-students In the'buHding rusflied pell moll from the ^burning structure, and by the greatest of good fortune escaped scrloiis-tn-.lury iw so do- ins. There were some forty or fifty of'them wlw roomed in the dormitories and these succeeded in, saving -a.ll 'of thoh- person-ail effects. The .alau'in- was.telephoned In to the lire deportment and a general alarm was turned in, all of'the four companies responding. • The steamer tvas also brought-out, as H was impossible to get. pressure enough on- the water mains to reach the' bui'l^ings, though there Is a water plugsjiit the lower corner of tflie cnm.pus. The steamer was attached .to the waiter'plug/two .lines of •hose were strung, and the Bremen were sent at th-e flre, which wa* confined to the third.floor and a.ttlc so far. .One -line of hose was sent, to tlie root of tho kitchen -annex,'and"'the otlier to the roof of the detached ono-srory building on tire North of the main t>uildl»g. Tlio plpemen directed 'fj-c streams of water Into the windows of the'third floor, amd wore succeeding admirably in- checking the progress of the 'flames,' when a. flue in the boiler of the steamer "Mew-out and the department was pow- -orl-fss. As soon as the water ceased pouring In onto the third floor, the flanfts pained renewed life -and within twenty m'iuu'tos the whohs building was .V rnpf"*, of flairte.| The sight was a grand f&f though- nine tlie less a sorrowful one, and as the many hundreds who had gathered to lend what aid they could, realized that no-thing could save the 'building from total destruction, a imirnyur of' sympathy arose. The tall- tower on- the Southeast corner of the building'hjid' withstood' the' flames, and It seemed that It would stand through the fiery baptism, but -when the water ceased to pour In ori' tlac flames, the renewed heat sapped the already feeble supports and'the spire fell with a .thunderous crash-. Two chimneys on the North side ot the main bulldliDg, and near, the Northwest corner swayed and threatened to toppls witb every breath of the furious '.gale : .that'was blowing from'tho North, 'The, supports were burned away for .thirty feet- from their tops, and when finally: tlio second floor caught Wa ;blazcd up angrily, a sudden strong g'tts't'bf wind, •sent the one farthest west 'craanlhg'.'. against iSs neighbor and both fell,lnto : the soothing mass of flame below.,-; A., great :cloud- of dust and smoke arose from the ruin, lighted •.with millions'' of burning brands' and sparks, and lurid tongues of florae lea.pt/to the. top of. th : e skeleton' walls. The'.partition walls In the' Southwest. cornter fell shortly -, after this;- iand > carried with them: the South -•wail of tho mam build- : $44,499-41 . ; The stock was too large to sell in Bulk, and upon the petition. 61 creditors the Cass circuit court entered an order authorizing me to at once open the doors, employ a sufiicient force of clerks and proceed to sell the entire stock at retail. The citizens of Logansport, Cass and adjoining counties are respectfully invited to call at the Otto A. Kraus store and inspect the stock of merchandise consisting of Clothing, Hats, Boots and Shoes^ and Gents' Furnishing Goods, and assigned to me September 14th. The stock was appraised by Logansport merchants of sterling integrity and amounted in the aggregate to $44 499.41. ALBERT G. JENKINES, Assignee. A drat.t-was wli^fctbes! ••'•'•."•';:A- li - i 'iS. j .' : Vvi;' 1 -vV:iS;!j^i; i VC '.'V'iv.p'^iii-'wiwfo nion had been awaiting,-and as tho dust and smoke.cleared -a.wfl-y after ilie I'aill.^of the walls, fhe lurid flames darted 'hungrily up and within, live minutes the entire first .and second floors were a 'mass of flanii'. The destruction of the build!ug.w.'is assured;'-<ind'tha.t, too, a.Cter the liremoji had virtually gotten the upper hand. As soon as tho flue in flic steamer was blown out. by I'he im- .inenso -pressure of -stea'm the engineer had crowded on, tho engine was uncoupled from the hydranit and hnrriud -to town for repairs. In loss man an •hour the steamer was back, reiidy to take up tlio work, but the delay was fatal and no power on eart'h could.have saved the main building from being de- st.roycd. The steamer was still'useful, how- over, .and to its use .lifter the repairs had been made can be -attributed the fact'.tliat tho whole group of-build-ings were not wiped out. The one-story arad basement buiadiiag.on i-ho North a.nd East of -Klio main, building, nnd the kitchen building on- the West of it wore saved. Tbo firemen kept two streams pouring on the -mass of ruins until--a Lite hour last night, two companies remaining on the spot. Prof. Michael was at home when the flre broke out, but was on the scene shortly afterward. There -was nothing to do but to stand and watch the destruction of his hopes, and he had nvauy sympathizers as the crash of falling malls iiud the ronr of the flame's almost drowned tho hum- of many voices. The school opened tho fall term on the first Monday,of September, and the prospects were exceedingly bright for a successful year. There wore sixty-live or more students enrolled. 'Tho first school year had given the school'a good name throughout the Qourit'iry, and in consequence the out- look'was exceedingly bright. IT WAS A LANDMARK. TJIO Old College .Ha* Had An Eventful History and Its Destruction is, Regrettable. TJio destruction of the old.Smithson college nwrks an epoch in the history of Cass county. Founded originally as an institution of line Unlversalisc creed, it -hns passed through many changes and .has seen .adversities, and now. in the day which seemed to bo fraught with the greatest promise of a successful future, It Is destined to bo but a, memory, for it is extremely improbable tfliat it will evO'r be rebuilt: In the early 'Seventies Joshua Smithson nnd wife, residents of Vevay,' and strong -believers in the Universalist creed, devised two-thirds or their large fortune to -the church of their choice, for the purpose of founding a number ; of Institutions of. 'learning over the 'State; in the name of the Univeusalist church, *The most important of these •schools was finally, secured to this city, 1 when the widow of the late Philip Pollard donated a, tract of twenty-five acres of ground and twenty thousand dollars in cash toward the erection of tho necessary buildings. The site,was on rhe brow of a hill, commanding a view of the entire city, and .a- more .suitable spot could not -have been found. The corner stone of the college was laid in 1871. -and tho dedlca- 'tiorj of the buildings took place the following year. There have been many changes In the 'ownership' ot .the institution since that time. It did not prove a success as a cnurch. institution, and has been supported by the citizens of LognTisiport through many Changes, from normal^school, private -school, to a business university, and. the flnal venture promised more or success than any. of the previous ones,./ Prof. G. W. MielMiel secured control, of the Institution In 1S95, putting twenty thousand dollars of his own money 'toto'iit; in addition to a sum- sub'scrJbed by the enterprising citizens of Logansport. He has since expended some fifteen thousand dollars in Improvements so It Is said, and the on'ce neglected campus was made'to blossom like the roso : gardens of the East, while the buildings we're put In thorough good shape.; • . • ',.'-' Prof. Michael .was too much; dis : turbed yesterday to know definitely what his plans-would be/ The loss Is cstl'matcd to be about ?65,000, as fol-! lows: -.BulldtDgs,;-.$50,000; ;furniture, $7;i3ob; etatlonery' on hand,: ertocK used in'' supplying- students;' In. the,;epllege, r .
