'The river flats upon which the dredged
material was deposited were largely of
soft mud. The average depth of filling on
the flats has been about ten feet, and, as
was expected, tlie weight of this material
hns compressed the soft mud beneath,
resulting in some settling of the mass
Levels have recently been taken over the
reclaimed area and computation made of
the amount of filling required to rata: the
area to the grades established by the
project of 1SS2. The amount of fill re
quired over that originally estimated is
2,100,000 cubic yards This increase in
full is due in part to the change in grade
or secion III, made in 18S4, in part to
shrinkage and drying out of dredged ma
terial, but chiefly to the settlement and
compacting of dredged material Just men
tioned The training dike on the Vir
ginia Eide of the channel, added to the
project of 1S90, and the estimated In
crease in cose of inlet gates, have also
been factors in the revision of the estimate.
Theincreasein estimated cost is S23G.G55,
which, when one considers that the
original estimate was made about 1882,
and that the work since then has been
subject to fluctuations In prices of labor
and materials, and has been subject to
many continccncies, is not by any means
large for such a work as is under con
sideration. The benefits to commcicc and navi
gation have been most ma iked. Vessels of
the draught now engaged in the coal trade
from Georgetown were formerly unable to
cross the bar In the Virginia channel. The
increased draught now practicable has de

Lively Fire Follows an Explosion
in a Drug Store.
Several Employes of Crlswell'.s
Pharmacy Slightly Injured by
P, M. CrlswelPs drug store, at the corner
of Seventh and T itreets northwest, was
considerably damaged by fire yesterday
arternoon, and for a time it looked as It
several employes In the place would lobe
their lives by the names.
Atout 2 o'clock one of the drug clerks
was engaged in preparing a compound In
whlcn benzine entered largely. This work
was being done at the rear entrance ot the
store, JiiEt bei-ide the elevator shaft. In
some manner some of the benzine leaked
from a bottle and fell to the cellar, where
f.Trn.ioo fire was beinir kent up. An ex
plosion followed, and flames immediately
leaped to the woodwork of the elevator
shalt, up which they raa to the second and
third floors of the establishment On these
floor several girls were putting op patent
medicine". At the appearance ot the
names they scampered Tor their lives and
succeeded in reaching the ground safely.
In the cellar at the time of the explosion
was a colored porter, Robert Johnson,
who suffered a rew siignt ourns. uu
the giound floor, L. S. Day, head cleik,
who rushed to the cellar to warn Johnson,
was slightly binned about the hands.
Three fire engines and a truck were
soon on tne scene and altera hard engage
ment' gained control of the fire.
Considerable apprehension was felt dur
ing the progress of the fire owing to the
possibility of an explosion of the chemi
cals stored In the cellar. About forty
live gallons ot"aleohol were in one corner
of the cellar, and had the flames reached
this the building would have been doomed.
Mr. Crlswell was at Mount Vernon yes
terday morning and arrived at thu store
after the fire had been extinguished,
lie estimates the- damage at about $3,500,
fully covered by insurance.
