1890 - CONFLAGRATIONS. Incendiarism at Bismarck, N. D.

News
BISMARCK, N. D., March 25. - Some one tried to burn up the town this morning. At 2 o'clock an incendiary started a blaze between two empty buildings, with the wind blowing sixty miles an hours. The old opera-house on Third street, the laundry building belonging to George P. Flannery, of Minneapolis and the Judkins photograph gallery were burned. The sparks also set fire to two small houses two blocks distant. Only the wet roofs from the recent snows saved half of the town. About the same hour a fire was started in a lumber yard in the east end of town, but it was put out in a short time.
