A Determination to Itlil tho Cnmp oi On-

Hoboes Lined Up nnrt Drummed
Out of Town In Mio Tlgllunts.
Cnirrm Cheek, ol,, May 1. Tho
burned district of Wednesday covered
17 blocks. The Masonic tcmplo build
ing was bnt partially destroyod and
there tho mass meeting of citizens was
held Thursday to consider tho grave
situation. Committees wcro named to
take charge of tho relief work and
headquarters wcro opened nt the Mid
land terminal dopot and at tho two
Men, women and children, cold, hun
gry and worn out with their hardships
of tho night flocked about tho depot
when tho relief train from Denver and
Colorado Springs arrived at six o'clock
Their wants wcro soon satisfied, the
tents w ere rapidly set up and by noon
something like order prevailed. What
provisions wcro saved from tho flro
commanded fancy prices, beef selling
at $1 a pound and bread 25 cents a
Tho I'irst national bank opened be
fore nine o'clock in a warehouse and'
money was issued on demand. Tho
Bimetallic bank will opened Friday
morning. In the burned district of
Saturday's lire tho work of erecting
temporary buildings w as i esumed and
tho piles of salvage from Wednesday's
fire, which had been carried there,
were put in something like order
There is a determination plainly
shown to rid the camp of undesirable
crooks and tramps. At noon 50 hoboes
were lined up and drummed out of
town. All arrested suspects were later
on sent to Colorado Springs. A 'vigi
lance committee 1ms been formed and
no mercy will be show n to violators of
the law,, 'iliis committee will work
quietly and will not give out anything
to the public. The result of this policy
has been wholesome and few com
plaints of thieving have been made.
It is impossible to stato Thursday
night how many were burned in the
fire Wednesday. All kinds of rumors
arc afloat and many persons arc miss
ing. Some have gone out of town and
some are off on the hills v 1th friends.
At tho improvised morgue aro three
dead bodies that of Chas Griffith, a
miner; the unknown incendiary shot
by rioyd Thompson, and an unindenti
fled miner. The revised list of tho4n
jured aggregates 20.
A corps of 25 insurance adjusters is
trying to figure out their losses They
roughly estimate the property loss at
51,250,000, not moro that 20 per cent, of
which is coiercd by insurance. Tho
loss by the two fires will reach S2.000,
000, and the total insurance loss about
5400,000. The cause of Wednesday's
fire is as yet a matter of specula
tion. A waitress hi tho Portland hotel
was in the kitchen when the blaze
first broke through tho partition w all
and sho states that the fire originated
in the Chicago restaurant adjoining
the hotel. But the fire burst out simul
taneously from so many places as to
still leave the impression that arson
was committed. Coal oil fumes were
detected about tho school house Thurs
day, and some women created a sensa
tion by telling of seeing two men try
ing to set fire to a residence near tho
Ireo Tabor From Competition With Con
vict Labor Favorable lleport nn the
Wasiiijotox, May 1. The house
committee on labor Triday ordered a
favorable report on the bill of Mr.
Southwick, of New York, to protect
f reo labor from competition w ith con
vict labor by i estf icting the sale of
convict made goods to the states in
which they aro produced. The meas
ure was amended so as to exempt the
manufacture of agricultural products
from the operation of tho proposed
law. The report states that it is not
designed by this bill to attempt to in
terfere in the slightest degreo with
tho right of each state to employ its
con icts and to disposo of the products
of their labor in any manner or by any
system or plan that may appear wisest
and best to its citizens. All it seeks tc
accomplish is to confine tho results oi
tho operations of such system, so fat
as possible, within the state lines and
to prevent resulting ovils, whether
necessary or otherwise from attending
to and injuriously affecting tho citizens
of these other states which elect to
make different disposition of the time
and labor of their prisoners.
