Two bodies, both negroes, were found float ing in the St. Johns river this morn ing. The charred appearance of por tions of the corpses indicated too plain ly that they were victims of the ter rible fire which swept the city last Fri day and Friday night. The river is being watched today, everybody believing that the water will give ui its dead on the third day. This indicate? that many people believe that the fire drove bewildered men and wo men into the river. It is Impossible to ascertain who is missing, as thousands have left the city. S. A. McCortie, who was employed at the Gardner ship yards, almost lost his life in trying to save the people who rushed down .Market street to the river when the flames were at their fiercest. He says he succeeded in getting twenty persons across the river, but as many more were either burned to death or drowned at the pier. " I had no idea the ship yard was in danger." said Mr. MeCortie. "I was trying- to save my tools as the fire was being blown to the east and away from the docks. "Suddenly the flames shot across the yard with the wind from the west risiht behind them. I knew then everything was going. I tied from the building that was burning over my head. On the pier I Faw a crowd of people. I am positive that forty is a low estimate of those I saw. Of this number 1 saw afterward only the twenty I carried across. There was absolutely no way of escape for them. 'After I had carried my boat half way across the river I heard many cries and shouts that seemed to come from the smoke at the pier. I know many were dost at that moment for the flames were on all sides and the river in front." The Alcazar, at St. Augustine, al though closed several weeks ago for the City Councilman Say They Don't Want ,'- r U6J I-'-- A' A Ds Facto Mayor ? i a LrJf ' t season, has been reopened to care for the refugees. Other winter resort hotels will probably open tomorrow, as the crowds leaving the city are being aug mented freely today. Thousands of people worked yester day and last night. The firemen have not been relieved, because the debris is still burning, and streams of water are being poured into the flames and em bers all the time, night and day. On every telegraph and telephone pole that was not destroyed linemen were at work. The trolley company has a large force of men at work hang ing wires and clearing the tracks, where the street was sufficiently cool, so as to establish cars as soon as pos sible. It will be several days before a car can pass into East Bay street. Ten military companies are in the city to prevent vandalism and the militia pa trols all parts of the city. LONG DRAWN OCT. Judge Hazau Takes a Rest From Pan cake Case. The Ralston pancake flour trade-mark case has been closed for a time in order that the district court may look after some criminal cases. The Ralston case has been before the court the better part of two weeks and ITS witnesses and depositions have been heard by Judge Hazen. It will take some little time to ciose the case and make the arguments. The Ralston case is one of the bulkiest ever before the court and the first case tried by the court concerning a trade-mark.
