began to give out bulletins. Their
story told what their operator had
seen, and that was practlcully all.
Not a word was given In all the oper

tho other end did not know and would
not take the responsibility of making
an estimate. That It was considerable
seems to be beyond question, and an

went seven miles to tho Cliff House and

yesterday a letter directed to tho Asso

quested Purser Smith to deliver tho

I As tho post office In San Francisco
,was in tho heart of tho burned portion
of tho city, there can be no doubt but
I that it is burned to tho ground. This
'means that for several days and per

days delayed after it reaches San Fran

In vlow of this fact, Edgar B. MUlor,

lhaa decided to go to San Francisco as
a messenger and will deliver any mes
sages or letters in plain unstamped
envelopes that may bo handed to him
for a nominal fee. In fact Mr. Miller
will bo a messenger hoy on a large Job,
While going up on tho steamer Mr.
Miller will prepare upon a hand pres

his arrival in San Francisco he will

Ho will probably beat the mall by a
