THE FIRE CAUSED BY THIEVES. IMMENSE LOSSES OF JEWELLERY. London, March 21. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 22 March 1899

There were two separate simultaneous outbreaks in different parts of the building. .., Some of the guests sustained immense losses of jewellery; It is'. stated that l,000,000dol worth was lost, one, lady alone suffering to the extent of 200,000dol. Numerous acts of gallantry are coming to light in connection with the fire.

The lady's nerve undoubtedly prevented a panic, and perhaps serious injury to some of.' her pu pils. There wero 212 guests and 350 em ployees in the building when the outbreak occurred.
