Tho destroying angol wIiobo wings
of firo fanned tho camp Saturday
renewed his visitation and com
pleted tho calamity. Tonight 3000
people are homeless, with two
inches of snow on tho ground
and a thormomotor that is hugging
tho zero mark. No description
can oxaggorato tho condition of
affairs. Nearly $2,000,000 worth
of property wont up in smoko this
afternoon, with probably ouo-tonth
of that covered by insurance.
Tho loss of lifo is not ereat
when tho great recklessness with
which dynamito was used is taken
into consideration, blowing up
buildings that stood in tho path of
tho hro with tho nope oi stopping

Tho firo started in tho Portland
Hotel, whoro it broko out, accord
ing to somo roports, in half a
dozen places at tho same timo,
giving color to tho report that tho
lire of last week was designed by
incondiaries that thoy might mako
n raid upon tho First National
Bank, which carried over $100,000
in cash in its vaults to moot tho
pay rolls of tho district that ma
hue to-morrow. Tho firo spread
with a raniditv that can onlv bo
compared to tho progress of tho
fire on Saturday. It could not bo
checked, and from tho very first
alarm preparations woro inauo to
ropcl the destroyer.
Special trains woro run from
Victor and Gillette to bring in
minors with dynamito ready to
nso wliorovor possiblo. It was
moro common than wator at a
oity firo and tho lavish nso was
productive of several fatalities and
scores of wounded people Tho
Palace Hotol, which contained 300
rooms, was ono of tho first places
attacked with dynamito, and from
the results it would appear that
littlo warning was givon of tho
As tho walls tottered in res
ponse to tho tremendous charges
of giant powder tho air was filled
with shrieks of dying men who
had been caught in their rooms
and dragged down in tho wreck.
Boforo tho wreckers could offer
any' nid they wero-drivon back by
tho flames that woro rolling over
lho site of tho hotol. Tho dyna
miters fled to savo thoir own lives
and tho loss of lifo at tho Palaco
is merely a matter of conjecture.
Over 3000 pooplo are homeless
hi a city of desolation with no
homes to offer and no food to sup
ply tho daily wants. Tho busi
ness portion of tho city loft stand

cover a pity block. Tho rosidonco

Dr. Stuart Eldridge, medical
inspector for tho Hawaiian gov
ernment nt Yokohama, roportod
that he had nppointed a
iiumbor of deputies at othor
places, and gave a full account of
tho passongor who loft tho Gaelic

ploguo. In view of tho fact that
tho ploguo was opidomio in Hong
Kong when the S. S. China loft

aro opidomio in Asiatic porta
during this season of tho year, ho
recommended that no Btoorago

decision arrived at wbb that wliilo

OB a precautionary measure ho
notified tho captain that Btoorago

to land at Honolulu on tho direct
voyago and that ho would havo to
take them on to Portland and land
them on tho return voyago.
Port physician Day produced
tho bill of health of tho China
signed by tho Hawaiian Consul at
Hong Kong, in which no mention
was made of existence of the
plaguo, while tho ono signed by
tho United States Consul stated
that Bixty-ono deaths had occurred
tho week prior to tho departure of
tho China. It was evident tho
Hawaiian Consul was neglecting
Minister Smith said notification
of his removal from tho office had

On motion of Dr. Wood it was
