BURNED OUT Skyscraper of the name Life Insur ance and Pe-stal Telegraph Companies Gutted. New fork, Deo. . In blinding rain storm tonight, the .massive block of buildings on Broadway, No. 953 to 259, aud included between Murray and Warren stieets, was almost destroyed by fire. Within three hours more than fl, 000.000 worth of property was de stroyed. The fire began- in the five-story brick building ocoupied by the men's fur nishing firm of Rogers, Peet & Co., on the southwest corner of Broadway and Warrant street. Adjoining the Rogers Peet building, and south ol it, was the magnificent white building of the Home Life insurance Company, and next to this was the brownstone building of the Postal Telegraph Company, erected at a cost of millions only a few years ago. Within a few minutes after the discovery of the fire the Rogers-Peet building was a roaring furnace, and an alarm had been turned in - wbioh brought more than a score of engines to the scene. It was but a short time when the flames had eaten through the wall of the Home Life, and were roar ing high above that lofty stiuoture, Thousands of people had gathered on the soene, and the bunding glare of the flames lighted np the lower part of the city- Even in the downpour, the great crowd of people grew and the police reserve were called out from many sta tions and kept the people back for blocks. Great showers of sparks were oamed in ail directions by the gale, that blew 60 miles an hour. It was a picturesque fire. The Home Life Insurance building was occupied by that company and a large number of . men prominent in various line of business. Eveiy effott was made to save the valuable papers stored in some of the offices, but many of these were lost The offices of the rapid-transit commission were on the ninth floor of this building, and it is believed that all the plana and schemes of work with which the company has been working for many years are de stroyed. In the Postal building, as well, theie were many serious losses of a private natnre, and when the flames reaobed the operating room of this structure. which they did within three hours of the outbreak, the one or two solitary operators who remained at their posts were compelled to flee for their lives. The fire burned even moie fiercely in the Home Life building, owing to the great height of this structure and in an incredibly short time the upper ball of this magnificent building was in flames. The water towers in the street were able to throw their heavy streams only into the lower part of the structure, snd the firemen, though they worked with great bravery and untiring energy, in the blinding smoke and hear, could do little in the face of such a fierce sweep of flames and gale. It was only a ques tion of time when the Postal building, so far as the npper stories were con cerned, went the way of the others. The estimste of the losses by Chief Bonner after midnight was $1,000,000 with a probability of a still further loss should the fire continue to make any thing like rapid progress. At that hour, however, he believed that he had the fire under control within reasonable limits. MORE WRECKS REPORTED. Mew of Several Pilaster Beaches New York. New York, Dec. 6.

Her engines had made but two or three revolntiona when the explosion came. It gave lortn a roar that was heard all through South and Water streets, and the force of it sent a shook and a shiver through out the length of the ship. The floor ing; of the deck immediately over the engine room was torn into splinters. and steam poured np through the open seams in clouds. The sound of escaping steam was mingled with the shrieks of the dying men, who were enveloped in it. The flow of the steam was checked with great difficulty, and not until the lapse of five or six minutes. Then it was found that it had completely filled the engine-room ana nreroom, and that all who had been confined had been not only parboiled, but suffocated by it There was no sign of life left in any of the bodies, and in several instances the skin had peeled from their hands and faces. The second engineei wsa fonnd close to the break, in a position whioh indioated that he had tried to shut off the steam at the boiler when the acci dent occurred, and had died in the at tempt.

It is tor this reason that those who oame to the West lor mines are disappointed; that, while they are offered partly developed Of opened properties, the paying or going mines are not then for sale, except at what they consider high prices. Alter a man or company has prospected, opened and brought to a producing point a good mine, it is worth as much to them as any one, and the owners ate unwilling to sell except at a good profit, in fact, such properties are seldom offered for sale. People have to hunt them up, and then have hard work to get a bond on them, the owners gen erally preferring to keep on working.
