of the buildings that were burnt.
It was the biggest fire Charlotte
has had since the big cotton fire of
1875. Parties in Concord saw the
smoke rising from the big fire e
distance of 21 miles.
The fire originated in the building
used for the wholesale department of
Brown & Weddington. And from
this it spread until about a dozen
build ngs and contents were totally
or partially destroyed. The large
wall of the building where the fire
originated,fallmg, damaged the rear
ends of the buildings facing on
Trade Btreet. It was with great dif
ficulty that these were saved.
The loss in buildings, cotton and
merchandise of all kinds will foot up
to $75,000 over and above insurance.

Ihursdiiy afternoon about 5
o'clock Mr. J W Cannon, with a
6mall stick, waltzed into a gang of
worthless, indolent negro boys who
bad congregated in the front of the
St. Cloud Hctel, and made a general
scatteration. These negroes have
been warned by the hotel proprietors
and by the city authorities both not
to sit around on the front of the
hotel building, but they heeded not
their warning and as a result seyeral
of them are wiring stripes on their
faces and elsewhere. It is a great
pity that our city has not the proper
vagrant law, that these young indo

healthy to be idle and hang around
on the street as they do.
