Incited to Crime.
ST. JOHN'S, N. F., Aug. 11. - Fire on Pil-
ley's Island, in Notre Dame Bay, on
Wednesday last, destroyed the premises of
Joseph Strong, manager of the Trading
Company, consisting of a shop, a dwelling,
and two stores. The fire originated in the
fish store, and quickly spread to the adjoin-
ing buildings. A high wind prevailing at
the time carried the flames in all directions,
menacing the remainder of the settlement.
The thick woods surrounding the village
finally caught fire, and the inhabitants were
obliged to work for many hours to get the
flames under control.
George Raines, a resident, was suspected
of having started the fire and, when arrest-
ed, he made a confession. He said he
threw a lighted match among a lot of in-
flammables stored there. He had no griev-
ance against the owners, he said, but he
started the fire at the suggestion of one
Snow, who owed Mr. Strong some money.
Snow was arrested. The loss is $30,000,
