Fire Get Completly Out of Control of Fire
Biggest in History of the City
A fire, which broke out iu the sec

10:30 last night raged till 4:30 this
morning, and did damage that a con
servatlve estimate places at a mil
lion dollars, making the conflagrt'on
by far the most costly that has ever
come to the city In its history.
The Duke building is guttod and
all that is left of this handsome
building are the wolfe, and a mass of
knarled and twisted steel p'led in the
smoking tons of debris. The Geer

Strange as It may seem, the two
buildings next to the Duke building

too, there was some sligh hope that
there was a chance to save the Ta
