horrible and appalling calamities that
has ever happened in any community
of modem times. About noon of that
day a fire was discovered in a small
I'almeito tilur factory in the extreme
western portion of the city. A high
wind was then blowing to the eastward,
carrying the flames over the heads of
the firemen. The fire spread with Bin i
rapidity that our citizens had great
difficulty in leaving their homes and
places of husinc; In many cases they
barely escaped with their lives, and we
regret to Bay that a number were burn
ed to death or drowned in their efforts
to escape from the flames. The num
ber at this time we have been unable
to ascertain, although five bodies have
been taken from the ruins, and from
10.000 to I'.iidO persons are homeless.
"The burnt area extends east and
west about two miles and north and
south varying from one-half to three-
quarters of a mile, lu tins area was
Bltuated the oldest and most populous
portion of the city, embracing all
ilasses of people, high and low. rich
and poor. The Haines carried before
them home?, churches and all the pub
lic buildings save one. More than half
of the business Bcctlon was also con
sumed. Trie property loss aggregated
from $12,000,01)0 to $15,000,000.
