WILMINGTON, N. C, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 22, 1879. NO. 247
Large Confligration Burning of
ColYille & Co's Steam Saw Hill, and
Altaffer & Price's Sash & B "lad
Factery.Deitmction of Spirits and
Bosin' Loss $35 000 to $40 000
About fifteen minutes past twelve
o'clock last night the private watchman
on Messrs Colvil'e & Co's mill yard
at the foot of Walnut street near the river
discovered flames issuing from tbe
f jrnace room of the mill and immediate y
gave the alarm of fire. The policeman
on that beat sounded the alarm about tbe
same time, and soon the fire bells were
all ringing the;. general alarm. Tbe
LiltU Giant steam engine, followed by
the Hook and Ladder, Cape Fear engine
S ted man Bucket Company and Adrian,
reached the scene in the order named,
but owing to the intensity ot the cold it
was 1 o'clock before a stream of water
could be thrown; tbe fire had then been
raging some three quarters of an hoar,
and' the mill and Messrs. Altaffer & Price's
Sash and Blind Factory were now beyond
the hope of being rescued from destruc
tieu, and it required the united efforts of
the firemen to save even a portion of the
lumber on the yard, together with the
building and naval stores of Messrs.
Alex. Sprunt 3c S-n on the adjoining
wharf. The Champion Cotton Compress
on the North was also adjoining ,the fire,
but the fire-proof brick wall and the tin
s'led was a .'great protection to the prop
erty and was the cause, no doubt, of pro
renting a spread of the flames in that di
rection ot the time.
The Nor. bark Zzphyr, lying at Messrs
Sprunt & Son's wharf at the time, was
scorched somewhat, and was finally ex
tricated from its dangerous position by
the steam tug Nyce which arr rived in
time to tow tbe ressel away.
The mill of Messrs Oolyille & Co had
not been running for three days, owing
to tbe fact that some repairs were being
made, but steam was kept up in the boil
er to run the machinery of Altaffer &
Price's Sash and Blind Factory, which
wss under the same roof, Colrille &
Co furnishing them the motive power for
their factory. It was from the fire in the
furnace room, where the boiler is fired up,
that it is thought the flames originated, al
though the watchman states that he pass
ed through this room about 10 or 11 o'clock
and no fire was visible at that hour.
Still, it is supposed that a few slumbering
sparks may hare lingered there and
been fanned into a flame through tbe
rentilator or flues to the room and then
communicated to a small pile of shavings
and saw dust left in this room for kind
ling purposes. The mill and factory
were entirely consumed together with
a quantity of lumber on the yard. The
flames then spread to Messrs Spiunt and
Son's yard adjoining, and destroyed seme
S25 casks of spirits and about 400 or 500
barrels of rosin; also the wharf and.shed ;
in addition, there were some 60 casks of
spirits and about 100 barrles rosin which
were rolled into the rlrer, the most of
which, howercr, will he recorered.
The determined efforts of omr worthy
firemen, tinder their efficient Chief, Col.
Roger Moore, are worthy of the highest
praise for their untiring xeal and energy
to preserve property and prerent a further
From all that we can gather the follow
iog is a list of the losses sustained by the
different property owners together with
the amount of insurance on the different
properties which were consumed :
Messrs. Colrille k Co. lost their mill
and machinery and about $5,000 worth
of lumber. The mill was insured for
$2,000, one thousand of which was with
Mr. Norwood Giles In the Western, of
Canada and $1,000 more with the Pamlico
of Tarboro, J W. Gordon Sc Bro.,
Agents. On their lumber Messrs. Colrille
Sc Co had only $4,000 insurance divided
as follows: with Atkinson Manning in
the Fire Associstlon of Philadelphia,
$2,000, with Norwood Giles in the
Royal ot Eagland $1,000 and with J
W. Gordon & Bro. in the Union Fire
and Marine of Texas, $1,000. Besides
this, the wharf property on which the
mill stood, the property of Col. John
MacRae, was almost entirely destroyed.
Mr. Taylor, son of one of the mill owners,
estimates the cost to repair the wharf at
from fire to eight thousand dollars. We
were unable to acertain whether the
wharf was covered by insurance or not.
Messrs. Colrille & Co. 'a lots will probably
reach $10,000 orer and abort their insur
ance. Messrs. Altaffer & Price, who had juit
succeeded in putting now and expe&sive
machinery into their factory,' which tbey
expected to start to-lay for the frst timo
hid only $1,000 ins'ir-uw-f-this with
Norwood Giles. Their loss, the firm es
timates, to be between five an 1 aix th u
sind djllars, besides tbe lo?s of busiiicgs
which tbe burning of their factory entails
Messrs. Sprunt & $jn'a loss is about
8,500 on spirits and rosin in and around
warehouse, but this is fully covered by
insurance with the Agencies of DeRosstt
& Northrop, Norwoo,l Giles, J. W. Gor
don & Bro.
There is at leist $3,000 lost on the
warehouse and wharf burnt which was
corered to the extent of $2,000 with At
kinson k Manning.
Thre is also some damage to Mewr
Sprunt A Son's office building, but this V
i ! i.i . .S
comparaiiToiy aiignr, not yet ascertained
The otace is covered with $5,000 insur
ance with Norwood Giles and J. W. Gor
don & Bro.
A dredging scow, built for the U S.
government . and just completed, was
burned in thi dock at the mill yard; the
cost of this boat and machinery will
probably reach $2,000, but we were no
able to ascertain whether it is the loss of
Messrs, Colrille. & Co., who furnished tba
lumber for constructing it, or the Govern
The total amount of damage to prop,
erty will probably reach $40,000.
The flames, though under control, at
this writing, 2:30 o'clock, are net entirely
ly subdued, a large pile of slabs stored up
against the Compress Company's wall
being still on fire, and some little appre
hension is felt on the part of the officers
of the Company for the safety of their
property. A vigilant watch is being kept
however, and the fire engines are still on
duty where they will probably remaiaall
night and until the danger has en
tirely ceased. Our warmest sympathies
are tendered to the sufferers, whom we
hope soon to see rise, Phoenix like, once
more and ere long be in full blast again.
