CLEARING THE BLACK WASTE.
Billposters and Advertising: Men
Appear Early to Reap Busi
The scene of Thursday night's disas
trous fire was crowded with the curious
and the homeless yesterday. Hither and
thither they moved and looked and poked
into the acres of ruins where once had
been happy, if not luxurious homes, and
where now is only blackness, unsightli
ness, ruin and chaotic desolation.
Like lost spirits, the homeless moved
about the spots where happy hours had

spired, giving words of encourage
ment and, what was more to the pur
pose, good shining dollars to help them
tide over the pinching days. Father Nugent
of St. Rose's parish was one of the most
noticeable and most übiquitous figures on
the scene. Here, there, everywhere at
once, working like a beaver, there was
solicitude for the Bufferers in his kindly
heart, the smile of hope on his cheeks.
And the reverend father paid out good
hard coin of the realm where it would do
the most good. He had his best eye out
for the wolf of want at the door of press
ing necessity, and at his approach the
snarling creature avaunted Hke a guilty
spirit. Many a poor widow, many ah
unfortunate man met the reverend father
and ere they had finished their tales of
woe were furnished with the wherewithal
to bolster hope and to defy hunger and
the elements. Many a golden $5 and $10
piece found its way to a deserving palm,
and many a family is happy this morning
that was desolate and forlorn yesterday
Although there was hunger and home
lessuess for some to contend with, the
elements were kindly. The sun shone
warmly down on the scene of wreck and
ruin and the air blew up in gentle zephyrs
from the bay. Even the most severely
afflicted by the visitation of Thursday
night felt the genial influence of the
weather, and, while bewailing their hard
future, could not but feel new energy
springing unto tbeir souls from the balmi
ness about them.
For the crowds of the curious the day
was all that could be desired. They fairly
reveled, if crowds can revel in ruins, in
their surroundings, and there was not a
move made on the grounds, not a monu
ment left to a mood of the fire that did not
come under their notice.
All over the fire-swept tract workmen
were busy saving this and that worth sav
ing from the ruins. Most of it was in the
thape of twisted and warped machinery
and bits of old iron, and hundreds of
wagons bore the treasure trove from the
scene. The click of the hammer and the
buzz of the saw were heard in those por
tions of the devastated district where the
provident were already fencing in their
premises from the general ruin.
The busy sign-painter and the enter
prising advertiser w«-r< tarly >n the field,
and in numerous places on the blackened
*cres catch v announcements in the reddest
kind of red paint caught the eyes of the
"BLACKSON'S NAPPER SODA
Stops Fire Ixside,"
Was something like one of them, and it
caused many a laugh. At the corner of
Fifth and Bryant, where the water was
deepest on the site of the fire, and where
the charred boards floated in the pond, an
enterprising merchant had pasted up a
sign to the effect that his office was in the
air somewhere over this blackened deep.
This pave some color to the vivid crimson
announcement of a firm of sign-painters,
posted conspicuously adjacent, that they
painted signs anywhere.
The bill poster was also early on the
scene and in naming letters on improvised
bill stands all around the waste showed
his activity in the announcement that the
Dailey company would tender a benefit for
the homeless and destitute at the Alcazar
Theater on the evening of July 3. Over
on Fifth street, near Bryant, where
Dumontel's stoneyard had flourished be
fore the fire, tombstones and monuments,
calcined by the flames, leaned and tottered
over the blackened waste like so many
whitened, feeble specters of the life and
glory that once had been. Seated on a

boy of 12 put in the afternoon, surrounded
by an admiring throng, making a sketch
of the walls of St. Rose's Church.
Over on the lot on the west side of the
church walls workmen were busy making
a shed for the storage of the cement to be
used in the construction of the building.
It wasn't a very pretentious structure, but
it will auiwer'all the purposes and will
soon come into play when the bricklayers

THE PRIEST AS AN ALMONER
Father Nugent's Graphtc Descrip
tion of His Experiences With
the Destitute Ones.
Perhaps nine out of every ten persons
whose homes were destroyed by the fire
were members of the Catholic parish of St.
Rose, and as such the priest of the parish,
Rev. D. F. Nugent, is more nearly in
touch with their sufferings and destitution
than any one else.
During the night of the fire, and every
day since, he has gone among his destitute
parishioners to discover and relieve their

encountered during his investigations:

is equally difficult to discover.
"In one house on Brannan street five
families lived and there were probably
twenty-five or thirty persons in alf. I don t
want to give their names, for they are re
spectable, worthy people who would not
willingly court notoriety for any assist

save a thing. They scarcely have shoes to

mills are rebuilt these people will have a

"In other cases the heads of families
have not worked for a long time or were
sick, and now, of course, their destitution
is worse than ever."
Father Nugent is doing all he in
dividually can to relieve the necessities of
the homeless ones irrespective of their
creed or country, and for this purpose he
is distributing to worthy persons sums of
money received from various sources.

The Letters Incinerated.
During last Thursday night's fire the
letter-box on the corner of Fourth and
Brannan streets became red hot. The
metal stood the heat all right and the lock
is now almost as good as new. With the
letters in the box, however, it was differ

carrier came to remove them they
crumbled into ashes. Those who mailed
letters in that particular box can now rest
assured that not a trace of them remains.
To Receive Donations.
At the Mission of the Good Samaritan,
249 Second street, donations of money,
clothing, provisions and furniture for the
homeless through the fire were received
and given all day yesterday. The doors
will be open at all hours to-day.
NEW FRENCH HOSPITAL.
A Brilliant Gathering of
Guests at the Informal
Physlclans and Laymen Pay Their
Tributes to a Great Sanitary
The new French Hospital, the most
modern, most thoroughly and beautifully
equipped of any similar institution in the
world, was thrown open to the inspection
of visitors last night, and those who were
fortunate enough to have received invita
tions were more than repaid for their visit.
Time and time again the progress of the
work on the beautiful Maison de Sante has
been reported in the Call, but the com
pleted whole, furnished with all the mod
ern appliances for health and the appur
tenances to comfort, seen in the full glare
of the electric light, so far exceeded all
expectation that visitors were simply daz
It was a gem, more than a gem — it was a
wonder. Magnificent in proportions, per
fect in detail, no similar institution in the
known world can compare with it. It is
par excellence, and no one wondered
last night when Sylvain Weill, president
of the French Mutual Benevolent Society,
declared that he was the proudest man in
San Francisco. He had a right to be. All
his friends told him he had a right to be,
and the magnificent structure which graces
the plat of ground at Point Lobos and
Sixth avenues was his warrant of right.
During the afternoon the medical men
of the City, under the guidance of Dr.
Charles B. Brigham, the chief surgeon,
and Dr. Vorsard. the resident physician,
made an inspection of the building. There
were fully 200 of them, and not one but
was enthusiastic in his praise of the ar
rangements. Not a suggestion was offered
of a change that could be made, and unani
mously agreed that the sanitary arrange
ments were perfect.
In the evening the directors tendered
what they were pleased to call a reception
to the press, but which was really a re
ception to many other friends of the
society. In the list of the invited guests
were the directors and medical staff of the
German Hospital, members of the Board
of Supervisors, the ladies who supervised
the booths at the grand faiT at the
Mechanics' Pavilion, the ladies of the
French, benevolent societies, not to speak
of the presidents of the French societies
in the City and the officers of the French
President Sylvain "Weill was in his hap
piest mood and fairly gloated with satis
faction at the evident appreciation of the
many visitors who explored the beautiful
interior. Shortly after 10 o'clock all ad
journed to the kitchen, which is almost as
beautiful as some drawing-rooms, to hear
the congratulatory speeches on the occa
sion. Amid the popping of champagne
corks the ladies and gentlemen present
applauded as the president took his stand
in front of the third griddle on the b*g
range and opened the feast of reason and
the flow of soul.
"Ladies and gentlemen," said Mr. Weill,
"I hope you do not expect a speech from
me. lam not an orator, and I was some
what afraid that I would be expected to
say something. I will. I will say that I
am the proudest man in San Francisco to
be at the bead of this grand society. I
have to thank the people of San Fran
cisco, the press of San Francisco, for all
courtesies shown to our society, and to
thank the City authorities for their pres
ence here to-night. I have also to thank
all the benevolent societies of all creeds
Mr. Weill then read letters of regret from
Governor Budd, Mayor Sutro and Etienne
Durbec, the projector of the society, which
were received with cheers. He also read a
telegram from his brother Alexander and
the Tatter's wife, both now in Paris, con
gratulating the society on the opening of
the new hospital. This was particularly
well received, Mr. and Mrs. Weill being
well remembered for a donation of $10,000
to the hospital for a pavilion, which bears

Lalande, the French Consul: E. C. Priber,

cian; Charles J. King, Walter Gifford

made short addresses, and all drank stand
ing to the health of the president, Sylvain
Weill, at the suggestion of Dr. Brigham.
The recipient of the toast, in turn, gal
lantly toasted the ladies, to whom most of
the success of the society was due, and the
reception was at aa end.
A SHRINE ON THE ASHES
St. Rose's Ruined Sanctuary to
Be Replaced by a Magnifi
WILL COST NEARLY $150,000.
A Temple to God Designed In Pure
Gothic and Built of Pressed Brick,
Marble and Granite.
It will be learned with surprise by thou
sands of Catholics all over the city that a
magnificent new church to cost nearly
$150,000 will rise from the ashes of old St.
Rose's, a church that in cost and beauty of
design, in richness of finish and durability
of material will rival the most beautiful
sanctuaries of ban Francisco, and that will
be the most notable architectural feature
of the south side.
The Call reproduces this morning a
sketch of the front of the projected edifice,
made by John J. Clark, who has designed
many of the finest institutions and
churches owned by the Catholic Church in
A few incidents in the history of the
new church will properly preface a de
scription of the plan 6 and elevations.
More than two years ago Rev. D. F.
Nugent, the rector of the parish of St.
Rose, conceived the idea of building a
magnificent new church, and where an
other man woald have hesitated to project

bo costly an enterprise he determined to
raise the necessary money and commence
Architect John J. Clark was direrted to
prepare plans for a pure Gothic church, de
signed after the best continental types of
The architect proceeded with his work
with the greatest secrecy. Father Nugent
was resolved not to give a description nor
to have a plan of the church published
until the day of its dedication, and he
faithfully adhered to his resolution.
A year and a half ago the foundation
was laid. The work of building the walls
commenced and when the great fire of last
Thursday night swept over Brannan street
and reduced Father Nugent's school and
church to ashes, the strong high walls of
the new church alone stood victorious over
the devastating flames. What is equally
fortunate, the architect says the walls have
not been damaged to any extent.
As stated, Father Nugent never confided
the magnitude of his enterprise to any
one, and many persons thought that be
cause of the tire the church would not be
erected. The contrary is true. Father
Nugent said yesterday that he is deter
mined to proceed with the structure, and
those who know him best feel confident he
will bring his enterprise to a successful
He had quietly calculated to have the
church completed by Christmas. The tire
may delay matters somewhat, but it is
nevertheless proposed to dedicate the
church as soon after Christmas as possible.
• The new church will be the only type of
pure Gothic chtirch architecture in the City.
Two spires will rise from the west and
east side of the building, the spire on the
west end being 200 feet in height and the
one on the east end 130 feet.
The church will have a frontage on
Brannan street, between Fourth and Fifth,
of 85 feet and a depth of 140 feet.
To diverge from a description of the
elevation for a moment, it is noteworthy
that the foundation upon which the walls
now rest is the strongest ever constructed
in this City. It is 17 feet in depth and is
composed of solid concrete resting on a
The materials to be used in the con
struction are pressed brick, granite, marble
and artificial stone.
The stepping and balustrades will be of
granite, and the trimmings of artificial
The entire building will have a wainscot
iDg eight feet in height.
The effectiveness and impressiveness at
the front of the church will be contributed
by three large entrances of equal size, ap
proached by a flight of fifteen granite steps,
having a width of forty-hye feet
The entrance doors will be made of the
finest hardwood procurable.
The roof will be between 80 and 100 feet
in height, and will be of California slate.
Interiorly the church will be furnished
in harmony with the exceeding beauty of
the exterior design. The ceiling will have
a handsome, pure Gothic molding and
will be nearly 100 feet in height.
Highly polished hardwood will be ex
clusively used in the interior.
The church will have three altars, all
located at the north end, and the main
altar will be one of the most beautiful in
The twenty windows of the church will
all be of cathedral glass.
Father Nugent's reasons for keeping his
enterprise so closely to himself are made
plain by the present discription of the
church. He realized that he had a stu
pendous work hand, and he hesitated
to hazard it to the public until assured of
its successful termination. His ambition
was to present it to his thousands of
parishioners as a Christmas gift, of which
they could all feel proud.
The fire has, of course, disconcerted him,
but since it has been ascertained that the
walls have not been damaged he feels more
Work upon the church will be resumed
as soon as possible, and the contracts al

Father Nugent, with characteristic mod
esty, refuses to take any share of merit for
his great work, and yesterday, in reply to
a query as to whether the church would be
built despite the destructive work of the
flames, answered simply, "Yes, with the
help of God."
NEWS OF THE CHURCHES.
The Interior of Trinity Epis-
copal Church to Be
Sunrise Prayer-Meetings Will Com
memorate a Successful Con
Trinity Episcopal Church, at the corner
of Bush and Gough streets, is one of the
most solid and imposing ecclesiastical
structures in the City. The interior, how
ever, in spite of the handsome chancel, has
always been a little cold and gray.
Extensive decorations have just been
begun inside of the church, however,
which in the course of the next few months
will entirely change the interior. The work
has progressed considerably upon the little
memorial chapel at the northwest corner
of the building. The walls of that sanctu
ary have been covered with a cement
which is new to California, but familiar to
those tourists who have visited the British
Museum, as portions of the interior of that
edifice are covered with it.
The cement is made in imitation of the
material used in some of the old buildi ngs
in Pompeii. That used in Trinity Church
will be tinted a pale greenish gray to co r
resnond with the interior of the buildi ng
and it is expected that it will have all the
appearance of the natural stone.
The roof of the memorial chapel has
been frescoed pale blue in imitation of the
sky and it is dotted with stars and a cres
cent moon. On either side of the altar is
a large panel, which will be filled in with
frescoing, though the designs are not fully
Over the altar a handsome stained-glass
window will shortly be placed. The chapel
is called Memorial "because it is reminis
cent of old Trinity Church, the altar, the
cross, the seats and even the carpet having
all been moved from the building on Post
It is expected that the chapel will be
ready for service on Friday week. The
decoration of the larger chapel will then
be proceeded with, after which the main
edilice will be given over to the workmen
to be decorated in the same manner as the
chapels. The changes in the building will
include the putting up of a number of
handsome memorial windows, as well as
other costly gifts to enhance the beauty of

where one of the oldest and best Methodist
colleges is situated. Dr. Hirst is known in
Pennsylvania, as he was formerly pastor
of Christ Church, Pittsburg. Both these
calls have been communicated to the
official board of the Simpson M. E. Church,
and a strong protest has been uttered by
the congregation against losing Dr. Hirst
till the rive years, which the rules of the
Methodist Episcopal church would permit
him to spend with one congregation have
Dr. Hirst has been four years with the
Simpson Memorial Church, and he stated
yesterday that he had not yet fully de

probability seems to be, however, that Dr.
Hirst will decide in favor of Chicago,
though nothing is settled yet.

FAVORS HOME INDUSTRY
The Manufacturers' Association Appeals
to the Society Ladies.
The Manufacturers and Producers' As
sociation will soon make an effort to secure
patronage for its members and for home
industries in general from another source.
Its officers are preparing to send to all the
ladieß named in the "blue book" a request
that in making their purchases of the ne
cessaries and luxuries of life they buy only
goods and articles made by local or Cali
fornia manufacturers. These letters will
contain several pretty mottoes that convey
the idea that the prosperity of the State
depends upon the prosperity of its manu
facturers and producers. Secretary Mead
states that the ladies of the 400 spend thou
sands of dollars for articles bearing foreign
and Eastern trademarks that are no better,
if as good, as the same class of goods made
in this State.
In the blue book are the names of about
1500 ladies, and the money spent by these
ladies will in a year aggregate many hun
dred thousand dollars. He wishes to arouse
the patriotism of the ladies in society, in
the belief that if their patronage is secured
this item alone will go far toward building
up local business.
Great preparations are being made for
the big mass-meeting that is to be held in
Metropolitan Hall, on Fifth street, on the
evening of Juiy 12. Next week the asso
ciation will put up in every factory in the
City huge posters to advertise the mass
