James J Bishop
St. Mary's Bay, for he was known over it, mourn the death of James J Bishop,which occurred on Wednesday night at 10:30 at his home in Point La Haye. An item in our paper a couple of day ago stated that at the present request of Rev. Father O'Driscoll two doctors had been sent to Point La Haye, by Mr. W. J Walsh, M. H. A., to attend to Mr. Bishop who was seriously ill. Drs. Fallon and Sharps proceeded there but their service were unavailing as were those of Dr. O'Kelly of Avandale, who had preceded them. A slight cold had developed into pneumonia and pleurisy, and despite all that the medical men and the loving care of his relatives could give James J Bishop passed to his reward on Wednesday night. There was not a man in St. Mary's bay more generally know nor more highly respected than was "Jim" Bishop. In St. john's and other places he was also a familiar figure and he made numerous friends whilst all who came in contact with him learned to hold him in the highest esteem. Still in the prime of life he had built up for himself a thriving business, owing a store as well as engaging in the fishing industry with his brother and always with much success. In his business dealings deceased was the soul of honour. In his private life he was very popular he radiated sunshine wherever he went and his presence was always sought. To those who were in trouble sought comfort; in times of joyousness he always added pleasure. He was possessed of a sterling character and a fine personality; he lived at peace with everyone, he died as he had lived fortified by the rites of Holy church James J Bishop has left many friends who will mourn at his passing and who will extend sincere sympathy to his sorrowing relatives. Surviving his are his widow and two adopted children as well as one brother, William Bishop. The funeral takes place at his late home place to-day.
May his soul rest in peace.

The Late Capt. Heater
The news despatch of to-day contains the announcement of the passing of Captain George Heater at Victoria B .C. The late Captain was a native of Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and it must be close to forty years since he transferred his citizenship to British Columbia. He was educated at the Grammar school in the town of his birth and in youth and early manhood gave promise of a successful career in the vocation which destiny had intended he should pursue.
His grandfather, Captain George Heater and his father, Captain John C Heater were mariners who in their day and generation reaped the benefits of the ocean and gained a livelihood thereby and it was only natural that the subject of this sketch should follow in the footsteps of such worthy sires. In the late eighties and early nineties of the last century the one prosperous town of Harbour Grace assumed retrogressive tendencies culminating in the notable Bank crash of ninety-four and the subsequent failure of what was at the time I believe, the largest fish firm in the world. The sad sequel to this deplorable condition is that in the succeeding years and up to the present time the former prosperity of the "old Town" has never recovered itself to any appreciable extent. Let it be hoped, however, that the future may have better things in store for Harbour Grace and with this Captain this optimism in view the sad chapter in its history may be dismissed.
It was about this time the late captain Heater-then an active and promising your man-emigrated to the pacific coast. He engaged in and prosecuted the various fisheries for which that section of the Pacific is famed and with the inherent blood of the Viking coursing through responsive veins it is not surprising that he made good in the land of his adoption. He has bow sailed his last ship given his last order of command and obeyed the call to that Great Home Port where his soul will receive the reward of a well spent sojourn here below, lived in the fear and admonition of the Almighty.
The late Captain Heater married a Moss French of Harbour Grace who predeceased him some years ago. To the memory of a friend and fellow townsman of my early life this tribute is dedicated and in humble respect let me add as a closing word.
"Vale, Requiencat in Peace".

Hand Shattered in Hunting Accident
Adams Cove Teacher Received Accidental Discharge of Shot gun in Right Hand.
A nasty gunning accident occurred at Adam's cove, Bay de Verde, at 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon when Leonard Evans, son of John Evans of that place, had his right hand badly shattered by the inadvertent discharge of a gun. Mr. Adams is the schoolmaster at Adam's Cove and was out in a boat with some companions hunting birds. In getting over the thwart of the boat he slipped, something struck the gun and turned him around so that his right hand came immediately over the muzzle of the gun. The gun was discharged and the charge went through the right hand, badly shattering it. Dr. McLean of Western Bay was called who on examination, fearing blood poisoning might set in, ordered the patient to the hospital in St. John's. Accompanied by his father and brother the injured man arrived by a train at an early hour yesterday morning. The ambulance was at the station and conveyed him to the hospital immediately. The doctors at the hospital think that the hand will be saved. He was resting as well as could be expected at an early hour this morning.
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 22, 1928
At the hour of ten o'clock, when most people seek the sleep that gives restoration to mind and body, John Munden Clarke Gobbie, entered into that sleep which gives eternal rest and peace to the spirit. At the age of eighteen years and three months this man, so familiarly known, and full of promise fo a successful life, was suddenly called upon by death to part with loved ones, companions, and many fine things which were attracting and developing him into noble manhood. The son of Mr. Munden Clarke of Brigus, he was adopted at three years of age, at the time of his mother's death, by his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Goobie, Hamilton Avenue. He grew up in the city, availing of all the avenues accepted by boys for companionship and played, the while studying at the Methodist college and passing the C. H. E. examinations. Eleven months ago he entered the firm of McMurdo and company with the desire to become a druggist. There he applied himself with diligence, and was greatly liked. "Mun", as he was generally known, took a hearty interest in the Boy Scouts, and was a patrol leader. Though young he was a regular attendant at Wesley Church and besides being a member of the Adult Bible class, he cheerfully performed any duty assigned to one of his age. After an attack of the flu, followed by a few days of apparent recovery, last Wednesday meningitis developed, taking from this life a young man of clean habits, devoted to his home and loved ones, manly upright in all of his ways, and loyal to all that is noble and good. Besides his father, and Mr. and Mrs. Goobie, he leaves a sister and brother residing in the States to mourn him.

DIED FROM EFFECTS OF DYNAMITE BLAST.
Bell Island Miner Drilled Into Blind Blast-Amputation of Leg Fails to Save Life
Wabana, Feby.28-Samuel Cobb, of Wabana, driller in number two mine, met with an accident about 11 a.m. ti0day which later cost him his life. It appears, from the details we have been able to secure, that Cobb, during the course of drilling operations, accidently placed his drill in a blind-blast hole, with which the blasters had had some trouble during the night before. As soon as his drill came in contact with the dynamite remaining in the hole, the explosion, of course, took place. His "buddy" who had been working with him only a little while before, had gone to another section of the mine at the time to fetch something. The loaders were also away; so that Cobb was alone when the explosion occurred, otherwise others might have shared a similar fate. The unfortunate man was very badly injured, but was quite conscious, and, when found, enquired for his "buddy". He was brought to the company Hospital about 12:15; where, after examination, it was found necessary to amputate, one of his legs. He came through the anesthetic, and was conscious up to a short time before his death, which occurred about 4 p.m. Rev. I Parsons was in attendance and administered the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The deceased leaves a wife and four young children, to whom the whole community extends deepest sympathy.

Recently she was stricken by illness, and her physician recommended complete rest in the hope of an early restoration to her usual health, but at no time did her friends think the end so near.

FRIDAY JUNE 8 1928
Mrs. Mary Elsie Bursey
It was a lovely day, the sun shone out in its splendor the flowers were in bud and everything around was looking beautiful, when the last remains of Mrs. Mary Elsie Bursey, wife of E. John Bursey who died on May 20th, were taken to her last resting place. Although nature was at its best, it was a sad and solemn time, for Mrs. Bursey was greatly loved, and when the news went around that she was dead it cast a gloom over the place. A few months ago she was looking the picture of health, then illness overtook her and the doctor was sent for. After his attendance for a time she seemed to recover, but she was taken with several repeated attacks that slowly but surely undermined her delicate constitution, and it became evident that her days were numbered, though she still looked on the bright side. Her many friends still kept attending her but she became subject to great weakness of body, and as her strength failed she knew she was soon going, and she called all her friends, and as they surrounded her dying bed, wished them the last farewell. Never was there one so greatly missed. She lived a very humble life. Her humility and charity shone out while only those who knew her best could duly appreciate her worth. She was a kind mother and a faithful wife. She leaves behind her s sorrowful husband, one little boy, Byron, which fact lay heavy on her mind, also her father, James Barrett, one brother at home and two brothers living in Montreal. She was followed to the grave side by a large crowed of people. The Ladies Aid walk in procession before the casket. The body was taken to the United Church where the Rev. G. Ivany preached the sermon, taking for his text Roman 8, 18 "For I reckon that the suffering of this present time are not worthy to be compared with glory which shall be revealed in us". This was her own choice. She selected both the text and hymns; the latter being 448 and 472.
Many a tear was shed over her grave ut we know she is gone where there is no more sorrow and not more sighing.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life fled;
Then in Heaven with joy to greet thee'
Where no farewell tear is shed.
Old Perlican, June 2, 1928.

The Great Fire of July 8th 1892
STORY OF THE DISASTER AS TOLD BY AN EYE WITNESS
(Reprint from the Harbour Grace Standard of July, 1892)
ST. JOHN'S, SATURDAY, JULY 9-(SPECIAL DESPATCH) - Our famed Capital City- St John's- was more that half destroyed by fire on Friday evening and night last- that portion of the town extending from Beck's cove east to Signal Hill and north to Military road, being almost wholly consumed; it now presents a weird blackened and desolate appearance, tall, gaunt-looking chimneys helping much to intensify one cheerless aspect, St. John's East lives no longer, save in memory.
The fire which commenced at 5 p.m., had it origin in Brier's stable on Freshwater Road, a short distance west of Long's Hill, and was caused, it is supposed, by a man milking a cow there. It burned with great fury to the water's edge in a straight line from Long's Hill, and east to Hoylestown.
The following structures fell a prey to the devouring element- the Church of England Cathedral, Rectory and Orphanage; the Synod, Orange, masonic, St. Patrick School, Abstinence, Star of the Sea, Mechanics' and British Halls; Gower Street (Methodist), St. Andrews's (Presbyterian) Churches, the Congregational Church, The Court House, The Athenaeum, the Saving and Commercial Banks; the Atlantic Hotel, the skating rink, the Custom House, Harvey's Bakery, the tobacco, Soap and Iron Factories, the Lezeretto, Lindberg's Brewery.
The following other (business) premises also went-Bowring Bros., Goodfellow & Co's., G. Knowling's, Ayre & son, Jas. Baird's, Clift, Wood & Co's., Baine, JohnstoneCo's., The Telegraph Office, West's Marshall & Rogers, Job's Bro. & Co's., Heran & Co's., Rothwell & Browing's, harveys & Co's., March & Son's, Shea, G. & T. Rendell's, N. Stabb's, Murray's, J & W. Pitts, (2) Ledingham's, the Coastal Company's, the Tannery, Wood's, McMurdo's, Fenelon's, O'Mara's, T & M Winter's, W. Walsh's Bearns & Finlay, S. O. Steel, etc. These all were literally wiped out by the hungry flames, over those destroying march nothing could prevail- houses, stores, building of all kinds were ruthlessly swept away.
Over ten thousand people were left homeless, penniless and hungry by the remorseless fire which swept over St. John's on Friday night. all the fields available as well as Bannerman Park were soon filled with people and valuables, there being no houses to be had for love or money. That extreme destitution should obtain as a result of the calamitous event was not to be wondered at. More especially in view of the unfortunate circumstances that whole cargoes of flour and other provisions were destroyed by the hungry flames.
One vessel-Messrs. S . March & Son's Barquentine Nelly-was partly burnt in the harbour. The other ships made sail and thus escaped beyond the reach of danger.
The fire during its continuance raged with unexampled fury. At midnight all was ruin and desolation-St. John's East only an unsightly, blackened mass of ruins. Hoylestown is now burning.
It is very pleasing to know that all classed of the people worked with heart and soul to save valuable property from the grasp of the greedy flames. The English Cathedral, St. Patrick's Hall, and other stone buildings were all filled with property from wooden houses first but everything was burnt.
The Executive is now in Session, discussing measures of relief. It is felt that so great and far-reaching in its effects in the calamity, that an appeal for assistance must perforce be made to the outer world. It is estimated that the loss will in the aggregate reach the large total of twenty million dollars. The misery prevailing is shocking.
The only buildings saved were the Roman Catholic Cathedral, with the adjoining buildings and the Union Bank.
A STORY OF THE DISASTER BY AN EYE WITNESS
It will doubtless fall to the duty of the historian in the early years of the coming century to have to record one of the direst calamities within living memory that has befallen a civilized people and city. The event may be said to be without parallel. not even excepting, perhaps, the sad disaster that overtook the great and wealthy city of Chicago. Taking into consideration the comparative size population and wealth of the respective cities, the awful visitation which had so suddenly lighted on St. John's far exceeds in severity, the swoop of destruction that fell on the "golden city of the West".
As future historians will largely have to depend for facts and figures on the current literature of the day it is well to place on record some of the circumstances as they occurred, and some of the painful scenes that were witnessed during the progress of the conflagration, ere memory fails, and the whirling of time has drawn off the mind to other subjects of passing interest or to politics. So vast, however was the area, and so separated, after a few hours, were the various scenes of destruction of habitation and property, that many, seeking their presevation in one locality, were entirely ignorant of the welfare or loss which friends suffered in other parts of the town.
To undertake a description that shall adequately convey an idea of the awful grandeur of the scene and its subsequent desolation fairly baffles both mind and pen. Neither the fervid imagination of the poet nor the cool genius of the philosopher can do it justice. All that can be attempted therefore, will be narrate cause and effect; the origin progress and final triumph of the element that in the space of a few hours laid in ruins two-thirds of a prosperous city of 30,000 inhabitants;
The Origin of the Fire
Off Friday, July 8th, an alarm of fire rang out, and the fire company proceeded to the West of the city for the purpose of checking a forest fire that was approaching dangerously near to the suburbs.
About 5 p.m. another alarm was sounded of a fire in ward No. 4. People were standing in groups in the doorways of houses in Prescott Street, King's road, Gower Street, and vicinity, anxiously awaiting the new as to the location of the fire, yet little dreaming that within an hour the whole neighborhood would be in imminent danger, and they themselves would be making the most strenuous exertions to save their live and property
The fire seems to have started from a stable occupied by Mr. Jas. brine, at the corner of Freshwater Road. It is usual, at half-past four daily, to milk the cows, and little doubt remain that s spark from a match or a pipe ignited some of the hay in the stable. A furious breeze of wind had been blowing all day from the Northward, causing eddies of dust to fly and whirl through the streets.
The stable and houses adjoining were quickly in flames which almost immediately spread to a small grog shop. On the speedy arrival of the firemen every effort was made to subdue the flames, which under ordinary circumstances would have been successful. a fair supply of water was obtainable, though at the east of the city the water had been cut off pursuant to notice in the daily papers, for the purpose of relaying some water-pipe at Rawlins' Cross. How far the Municipal Council are to blame in this matter is yet to be ascertained.
But notwithstanding the brave efforts of the firemen in excessively strong wind carried the burning embers high over the buildings on to the roofs of adjacent houses, and the area of the fire as once became considerably extended. The destructive elements now rapidly descended the hill, continually widening as it progressed. three leading avenues now fed the flames, till 6 o'clock the fire had fought its way down to the foot of Long's Hill and Carter's Hill and soon Campbell's building stores were a sheet of livid flame. Not lass than forty houses were burning fiercely and the air was loaded with sparks and half burnt shingles. So far the fire-was confined to a space forming an equilateral triangle having the West fo Long's Hill for one side, and the Engine House for its angle, Carter's Hill for the other side, and Gower Street and Playhouse Hill for its base.
The feeling that the town was endangered now became widespread. People were to be seen in every direction, wheeling or carrying articles of furniture, and running to deposit them in some secure place, but in vain. As fast as they removed them to a distance building or open space, the fire had reached or gone beyond it and very few effects escaped the flames. There was no safety to the southward, but quantities of bedding and articles of furniture were piled within the iron railings of St. Patrick's Hall, and some within the Church of England cathedral itself.
At this juncture the sheets of flame rushed forward to the South of Gower Street, and ignited the Orange hall. The range of houses on the West and the Cathedral Sunday school on the east were soon blaze, and the long range of wooden dwellings on Cathedral Hill led the fire down to Duckworth Street, making a new base for the triangle of fie. In the vicinity of the Court House are situated most of the lawyer's offices. Great exertions were to secure legal documents, through not in all cases successfully. Had the conflagration been confined to this limit, although it would doubtless have extended to the Court House and water Street, the loss through very severe, would not have been irreparable. Five hundred houses would have succumbed, and the destruction would have extended from Cliff's Cove on one side and McBride Hill on the other. The large open space of the Cathedral yard made a splendid firebreak and the fire might have been fought and finally conquered at O'Dwyer's Cove. all the main public buildings would have escaped, and the Scotch Kirk, the bank, Customs House, and above all, that magnificent pile fo architecture -the perfect rain of fire poured down the hill southward and westward.
In every brilliant engagement, weather by land or sea, there is usually a turning point. So it was in this case. The supreme moment had arrived. No further effort to save the town was possible. St. John's must burn itself out. The scene was almost indescribable. Whilst groups of men were standing about the large open space in from of St. Patrick's Hall, gazing at the rapid advance of the fire from roof ro roof, the surrounding streets were alive with people, old and young, in the attempt to save their effects. Large quantities of bedding, &c., were being removed to be packed against the solid stone walls of St. Patrick's Hall, or stored in piles of street corners-only to be consumed a little later on. The excitement was becoming intense.
An awful moment came. Down poured the fire on the Colonial and Continental schools. These were of red brick, with slate roof; but the adjoining residence, occupied by Mr. J. W. Marriott, the Superintendent was of wood. The torrent of flames and the rain sparks and lighted shingles rendered the saving of any building hopeless. The Gower Street Methodist Chapel speedily succumbed and an immense body of half consumed timber lighted on the roof of the Church of England Synod Hall. The Rectory and adjoining range of wooden buildings at one fell a prey and in about twenty minutes the whole block, with the little brick orphanage, was a blazing mass. So rapid was the progress and so intense the heat that little more than valuable papers could be removed from the Bishop's study, to be placed for security in that part of the crypt of the Cathedral which is used as a vestry. Within the north porch of the Cathedral a policeman stood on guard, while door, and the magnificent pile which at other times seemed to wreck the ravages of time and storm, was doomed to destruction. As the fire crept on the blaze from the roof and storied window merely added longer and more brilliant tongues of flames of the sea of fire that now raged down and along the surrounding streets.
The saving of life was mere valuable than that of property, and the crowed retired before the devouring element, with what speed they could, to find shelter elsewhere, the Bishop of Newfoundland in company with the premier and one or two of the clergy watched, with what feeling can only by imagined, the downfall of the splendid edifice, that was the admiration of every visitor to the Colony, and to the erection of which merchants and townspeople of almost every creed had contributed something. Long did the interior burn so great and massively were the roofs constructed, till the blackened walls and fiuted columns told a sadder story that of any other building that was consumed. The Bishop retired, in possession only in the suit of clothes in which he stood, and afterwards borrowed a top coat to protect him against the high cold wind.
The whole east end of the city was now doomed, and it only became a matter of time as to when each house and street would fall a prey to the angry flames. Already there was a burning roof in victoria Street, a second in Prescott Street, and a third in the lower end of houses in intermediate lanes were as yet untouched.
On came the fiery sea of flame southward had eastward, and in slower measure westward. The rush for safety in the lower streets was east and west. Where so little opportunity had been given for saving property in the higher parts of the city; here there was less, the new and handsome brick structure of the Scotland Kirk, and its high spire and heavy bell, soon succumbed. Close alongside was the massive stone erection of three stories of the Commercial bank. Just opposite was the noble Athenaeum and next door the solidly constructed wall and roof of the Union Bank. It was scarcely possible to save furniture, or effects from this part of the city. Safes were closed and vaults secured to pass through the fiery ordeal. Large sums, such as $50 and $70 were demanded for a carriage or dray to remove valuables ledgers of documents.
Hour after hour each spot and erection was in turn visited and everything but brick, iron and stone seemed to melt as the spring snow.
As I already remarked no one eye-witness could describe the whole weird scene, as after a space of two hours, a mile of fire separated its opposite limits.
The writer took up his position of the embankment in front of the Railway Station. About midnight the view along Gower Street and Duckworth Street was grand in the extreme. The roar of the flames, the lurid glare, the atmosphere laden with millions of sparks and at moments a solemn hush, rendered the scene one ever to be remembered rather than described. At intervals small explosions occurred from powder, or a dull heavy thud told of the fall of a tall chimney stack or the foundering of a heavy party wall. Occasionally more brilliant spots than others would testify to the largeness of the building within. The Atlantic Hotel, St. Patrick's Hall, the city Bank, the Army and navy depot, and many other larger buildings might easily be located within the lake of fire.
On came the irresistible blast of heat and smoke from Prescott Street to King's road, and thence to Cochrane St. Already it had spread to Messers. Harvey's wharf, and was mounting signal Hill. When daylight broke the lofty range of residences known as Musgrave Terrace produced a mighty glow. The Ordnance Yard and house at the length fell a prey; and from roof to roof it crept, from Kent House to the corner one occupied by Mr. Whiteley, on to the residence of the Rev. H. Dunfield and Mrs. Stabb, and terminated in the destruction of the ornamental building beyond. The east side of Cochrane Street burnt to the residence of Mr. George Rendell, and here it was that at 8 p.m. the mighty devastation of 1892 came to its close.
The fire at the West end of the town much more rapidly than that of the East. The Star of the Sea and the narrow crowed lanes of wooden tenements that surrounded it blazed like tinder and literally poured down on the handsome row of brick residence known as Tasker Terrace. So suddenly was the swoop of the fire here that little or no opportunity was afforded of collecting or saving valuables. Ladies with their children fled for their life. By 11 o'clock many of the housed on the south side of Water Street were burning out, while all the east side of Cochrane street as yet stood intact.
Though not a spectator of the scene on water Street many of the inhabitants as narrated by those who observed them, were at the same in both serious and ludicrous. No possible chance presented itself removing the tons of shop goods along a half mile of burning premiss. Crowds of bystanders were about many apparently, with no other object than that of looting. In some instances permission was given to take or secure what they could. From the store in the rear many barrels of flour, &c., were being rolled along the wharves and placed on board any boat or small craft, shortly afterwards to be hauled into the stream to escape destruction from the burning wharves. On the street, shops were being entered and whatever could be carried in the pocket or arms was seized and hurried off. Her and there a man, in some instances a woman, might be observed rolling away a barrel of flour or pork. One female secured a large roll of flannel, the end of which trailed behind, only to be torn off by those who followed in the wake. Boys were making away with boxes of cigars and silverware, while many young man with better intentions were bent on rendering ore valuable assistance. The scene must be imagined rather than described. However great the loot, it was but a drop in the bucket compared with what was burnt. In this direction the progress of the flames was only arrested at the water's edge.
A walk along the Military Road at two o'clock in the morning, from the Railway Station to Rawlins's Cross, presented some strange scenes. All the house here were standing-the street was brilliant, horses with carts and carriages were constantly passing and re-passing with loads of furniture or hurrying to secure more. At the rear of Colonial Building the park presented the appearance of a fair-luggage and chattels of every description were pilled in separate lots, and women and children were in many instances seated on them for their further security. A great deal of what had been saved was stolen or smashed. A stream of water was being poured from the hose on the buildings at Rawlins' Cross in order to save Monkstown, the heavy wind causing the fire to work to windward. The town below was a perfect cauldron of fire. Portions at the upper end of intersecting streets were unburnt, and the Church of England Academy and the Methodist School near by were safe through the fence around the former property were levelled and burnt.
THE SCENE NEXT DAY
So far this description has been confined to the origin and progress of the fire, overcoming in its devouring rage every obstacle in its way. Its mighty character, however, could only be more adequately realized when its insuperable energy had been expended. A survey of the ruins told a melancholy yet eloquent tale. From the top of Long's Hill where the fire originated, to the Coastal Steamer's Wharf at Messrs. Harvey's premises, is a distance as the crow flies, of about a mile and half, and from Messrs. Bowring's premises to Harvey's is about a mile. These were the dimensions of the area of a populous town that had been reduced to ashes. The panorama from the top of the hill presented nothing but a forest of chimney stacks, as the buildings had been chiefly of wood, but lower down were fronts and party walls of brick and stone, except where they had fallen. It was a weird spectacle. The embers still smoldered and smoked, and forbade the approach to many parts.
All that presented itself of the handsome shops and store in Water Street was-a spectacle also to be seen in Duckworth and Gower Streets above it-an absolute wilderness. Many parts were beyond recognition. Through the forest of chimneys, a few landmarks were yet recognizable.
O the commanding site of Cathedral Hill stood roofless blackened mass of stonework with heavy buttresses and mullioned, unglazed windows, but a few hours before the pride of the city and a centre of devotion. No spot in St. John's had been more dearly cherished and none now more bitterly bemoaned. It is a ruin, little as such might have been thought possible. Neither earthquake nor storm could of itself work such destruction. Portions of the walls have fallen in; the handsome shafts of freestone are a cinder, and the beautiful reredos of alabaster is cracked and spoiled past renewal. The erection had cost about $400,000 and nearly that amount will be needed if ever it is to be restored and completed. I have faith to believe that, Pheonix like, it will yet arise from its ashes.
Below the broad open space the old church-yard stood the strongly construction building of the Union Bank, terribly scorched, yet intact. This alone in the neighborhood has gone through and stood the fiery ordeal due i some measure to the iron-shutters on the lower windows. On one side it was flanked by the now ruined old Court house and on the other by the modern and handsomely designed Athenaenm, an utter wreck. Opposite were the still smoking walls and tower of the Kirk, and nearby the gutted masonry of the Commercial Bank, with precious bullion safe within its vaults. Beyond the group nothing but lines of blackened chimneys of manifold proportions and fantastic shapes, till the walls of the custom House and the "Noble Atlantic" presented their calcined appearance. All other buildings eastward and northward, being of wood, were simply wiped out, and the lines of streets scarcely discernible.
Great exertions has been made throughout the night in saving the Railway Station, and the remaining buildings of the Est end. Men were stationed on the roofs of the Railway depot with buckets of water to put out the innumerable sparks that fell on the flat roofs. from an early hour stream was got up in three of the locomotives to which the cars and trucks were attached, so as to steam out of town the moment they were in danger. A number of ladies and young girls found shelter and safety in the cars for the night.
Devon Row was saved almost miraculously by placing blankets at the gable of the westernmost house and keeping them wet. The Premier worked with others nobly at this spot, and to their efforts the safety of many buildings eastward may be traced.
Men were also stationed on the framework of the new boy's and girl's Orphanage in Cochrane Place, with buckets of water to extinguish embers on the roughly-laid floors. This tended largely to the security of St. Thomas's church and School room, the large wooden residences of Sir. R. Thorburn and the building's on Forest Road. By leveling fences with the ground the safety of Avalon Cottage and the Theological college nearby was assured, although the Kerosene Stores caught and blazed with relentless fury some distance in the rear.
By an Act of the Legislature, after the great fire of '46, all buildings on Water Street were wisely ordered to be erected of brick or stone, for greater safety and preservation from fire. Thoughtful as the design had been, it was proved unavailing. Frontages and party walls yet stood, but in the rear the wharves were burnt to the water's edge.
Out on the board area above described, there stood out one line of residence, from the Drill Shed on Military Road to the handsome Methodist Chapel at the head of Cochrane Street and five or six wooden tenements beow it together with the ornate residence of Hon. G.T. randell opposite. This alone composed the East end bounded by St. Thomas's Church and the Railway Station.
Sad as the destruction of residences and mercantile premises, placed of worship and schools, orphanages and government Buildings, had been it by no means represent private loss. Nearly all the newspaper offices, with valuable plant of press and type have disappeared. In the Gazette Office Alone were piles of census sheets awaiting their sorting and binding, with other documents and reports. Book-stores have been consumed containing valuable volumes and literature only partially insured. Watches and Jewellry go to swell the sum, with costly pianos by the score. Much dependance was placed on the massive iron safes, in which were not only deeds and valuable documents, but money itself-in notes and coins. Great was the disdmay when it was discovered that numbers of these, had not stood the severe test to which they has been exposed. On opening some of them, nothing but sashes was discovered; in others papers were charred, and illegible, and coin rich and base had run together in a shapeless mass. The surveyor Generals office safe suffered particularly, plans and surveys presenting a smoking and smouldering appearance, whilst the contents of the one in the Government Saving's Bank were secure and uninjured.
THE OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE.
It will not be necessary for me to dwell upon the present condition of the burnt-out, or to speak of the active, remedial measures that have been so promptly adopted by Government and citizens to allay the present distress. My story, imperfectly and incoherently told, is that of the origin, progress, and immediate results of the great fire of July 1892. Sadly will it be remembered by the present generation, and in future will grace a page in history to which a parallel can scarcely be found.
That St. John's will survive the awful blow we may speak with confidence. a burst of sympathy that makes the whole world kin has been evoked. Means will be afforded to restore the homeless, and the patience and hardihood of Terra Nova's sons, who brave so many physical dangers to earn a livelihood, will not be daunted till their city is rebuilt. Cautious measures will no doubt be adopted to prevent or lessen the chances of a repetition of such an occurrence. Public buildings will rise to vie in architectural beauty which those of other modern cities. Business houses and shops will offer greater advantages that the old ones. New schools and colleges will afford larger facilities than those which lie in ruins; and lastly it is to be hoped that public enterprise and widespread private generosity may restore that noble fane to which i have more than once alluded, and make it the crowning beauty of a paragon city.
