FIRE DESTROYS PALACE HOTEL

The Palace hotel was completely destroyed by fire of unknown origin Saturday night, along with an adjoining building occupied by a Chinese laundry. The loss is estimated at $60,000. The hotel was a city landmark, built about 17 years ago, when it contained but three rooms.
