Arson Suspected

The fire department of Milwaukee, Wis., through Assistant Chief Davis, is investigating the explosion and fire at the W. O. Goodrich linseed oil plant just outside of Milwaukee, which caused a loss estimated between $50,000 and $100,000. According to Chief Davis the explosion occurred at some point distant from the dust collecting system, contrary to the usual experience in dust explosions. A 100,000-gallon oil container a few feet from the wrecked building was untouched. Stories are told by night watchmen of having driven away several men recently who attempted to enter the plant through windows.
