♦ ■ Yesterday afternoon the premises of Mr James Young, of the Bonanzi Clothing Factory, Princes street, were found to be on fire. The Brigade and Salvage Corps were soon on the spot and quickly put out the fire, but not before the floor of the upper story had been burnt through. Several Backs of coal had been placed on this floor, and it is supposed that these by some means were ignited. Mr Young was insured in the New Zealand Office for L 250, and estimates his loss at from L4O to LSO. The property is owned by Charles Begg and Co.. and is fully insured in the Standard Office. Wansted's hotel and store, fourteen miles from Waipawa, were burned down yesterday. The place caught fire from the closet, which, it is supposed, was set alight by a match. The insurance is L9OO in the South British and L3OO in the Union. The loss is heavy. The net loss of the Equitable Insurance Company on Carriok'a fire at Elleislie was L 375, half of their risk of L 750 being reinsured in the South British Office. Mrs Yonge's house, of eight rooms, at East Tamaki was burned down last night.
