When It was seen that the flames were eating their way aft, Capt. Wilson, who was lying injured and unconscious In a berth In the cabin, was lifted by willing hands and carried ashore and sent to the Harbor hospital. He was suffering from bad burns in addition to his Injured shoulder. , , Eighty thousand dollars In gold, being carried as military treasure to Manila, was rescued from the ship and guarded by soldiers. Lines of soldiers also guard ed the entrance to the dock. Courage Cost His Life. Capt. Dakln lost his life because of his unflinching resolution and dauntless cour age In lighting the lire. His body was found at the foot of a ladder and carried out. Other firemen stated that Dakln had come out of the hold allvcrafter entering It, and it Is believed that, enfeebled as he was by his flrst attempt, he still nifn fully rushed back to tho pluce of dan ger. It is thought he may havo been drowned in the hold. Foresight Saves Many. When tho fire broko out Acting Chief J. Sullivan was In charge of the fire forces. He opened a hatch and let a long ladder down Into the hold. To this act of prudent foresight was duo tho saving of the lives of many. If he hnd not done this the men overcome by the fumes In tho hold could not possibly have been rescued, as the next hatch led Into the heavily laden coal bunkers. Brave Acts of Firemen. Capt. Gilbert of tho fire department was overcome three times by tho smoke, re turning time and again to his work until at last he was carried away unconscious. Fireman J. McCjoskoy of Engine No. 4 was overcome by smoke and carried out. but revived and made a heroic attempt to save his chief, Capt. Dakln. whom he knew to be in a perilous position, almost losing his own life in the unsuccessful effort. Overcome and Fell. While Hosemen Clunlc, Matlock and Brown were fighting the flames In the third hold the former, standing nearly at the top of tho companlonway and pass ing hose down, was overcome and fell. He was caught by Matlock who, whilo endeavoring to support Clun' -. was also overcome and the pair fell unconscious at the feet of Brown. Fought "Way Up Ladder. The latter, choked and all but ready to give In, valiantly fought his way up the laddor, first with the form of Clunio In his arms and then returned for Matlock. Brown had scarcely passed tho latter up the ladder to outstretched arms when he staggered and would have fallen but for tho quick work of Hosemen Curtln nnd Regan, who clutched the reeling man and drew him to safety. Fell Into the "Water. D. Hennessey, lineman of Engine No. 1, at work In tho hold, fell Into the water at 2:20 this morning and was taken to the receiving hospital, where he died. Immediately after the alarm of flro was given Capt. Wilson, Third Ofllcer Wallace and Fourth Officer Dahl were notified and proceeded to investigate. Thoy descended to" tho flrflt hold, where they found tho cargo on the starboard sldo of tho vessel burning under a slow tire, which gavo evidence of having been at work for hours. Captain Overcome. The hold was choked with smoko and the officers were unable to do effective work- They had scarcely gotten to tho second floor when tho captain staggered and fell limp at the feet of his two com panions. Wallace and Dahl picked him up and carried him to his cabin, where the ship's surgeon with great difficulty icvlved him. Return Where Death Lurks. Undaunted by the terrible expcrlonco of a moment before, Wallace and Dahl again descended to the second hold, after di recting that an alarm of firo be sent in from tho wharf. Dahl wont first. He had scarcely touched the deck beforo Wallace, overcome, gasping for breath, tumbled from the middle of the ladder upon Dahl Tho latter shouted for assist ance, endeavoring at .the same tlmo to lift his fellow officer up bodily. Rescuer Topples Backward. Ho had proceeded half way up tho lad dor with the all but lifeless form of Wal laco In his arms when ho, too, was over come and the would-be rescuer toppled backward with his burden. Both mon wcro carried to the deck by firemen, but Wallace soon died. Fireman's Brave "Work. Battalion Chief I N. Fernandez, with his men of tho llro department, wcro the first to reach tho scene. Fernandez was overcome and Capt. Sewell took com mand. Ho saw to It that Lieut. A. Matlock and Lieut. John Gilbert wore gotten up, and thon, fooling himself get ting helpless, struggled In tho smoke un til ho tied a ropo around the waist of Gabriel Cunco of Engine 12, and thon mannged to climb to the deck and toll the men to pull up Cuneo. CapL Sewoll then fell unconscious to the deck, but soon revived. It required the united efforts of many engine companies, aided by the firo tugs on tho bay, to aubduo tho fire. No Inventory of Losses. Tho property loss caused by the fire, which destroyed nearly all tho personal effects of tho officers of tho outgoing regi ments, la variously estimated at from $50,0X1 to t'JOO.OOO. no Inventory of the goods lost yet having been taken.

HOUSE PROSECUTES THE DISCUSSION WITH VIGOR Votes to Release Census Esti mates of Amount of Cot ton Ginned. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. The House today called for the estimate of cot ton yet to be ginned, which the Direc tor of the Census has compiled, but which he has no authority to make public until March. This action pre cipitated a lively discussion In which petulance was expressed that the House Bhould participate in furnishing Information for the benefit of the spec ulators. On the other hand there were numerous members who stated that tho substantial Interests of grower, spin ner and merchant made it imperative that such information should not be allowed to be bottled up. There was no opposition to the resolution on Its passage. Discussed With Vigor. The discussion of the railroad rate bill was taken up and prosecuted with vigor throughout the day. So many speakers have come to the front on this measure that tho House agreed to meet ut 11 o'clock hereafter until the debate Is ended. The feature of the debate was the lengthy speech of Mr. Slbloy of Pennsylvania, who arraigned the legislation with arguments of varied character, all of which tended to give his reasons for being unalterably op posed to the bill. When he charged that the legislation was socialistic In Its nature and was a step toward Government ownership and tho dream of Bryan and Hearst, Mr. James of Kentucky asked what the, reason was for the right about face of tho Republican party in the direc tion of the Bryan leadership. "I will gracefully place tho respon sibility on my colleagues' broader shoulders," retorted Mr. Sibley. Wants Larger Salaries.

Y.) spoke for the measure nnd Mr. Shackelford (Mo.), who advocated the Hearst bill last year, gave his reasons for supporting i.hc present bill. A speech by Mr. Hef Un (Ala.) also favoring the bill con cluded the duy's debate. The House adjourned at 5 o'clock to meet at 11 o'clock tomorrow. Election Contest Reopened.

It will be remembered that early on the morning of October C, 1901. Charles Daly was shot to death at his homo on Third street, the crime bearing some peculiarly atrocious features. Mrs. Jennie Daly, his wife, and William Henry Hicks Bond, or Fred Bond, as he was known, who was boarding with tho Dalys, wero arrested for the crime. Mrs. Daly at first assert ed she had shot her husband In self-defense, but later broke down and accused Bond of the crime, admitting her com plicity, In order to get her husband out of tho road that sho and Bond might become man and wife. Both were convicted, Bond sentenced to hang and Mrs. Daly sent to prison for ten years SUNDAY CLOSING IS SETTLED FIR IDAHO Supreme Court Declares Consti tutional Ordinance Passed by Boise Council. Special to Tho Tribune. BOISE. Ida., Feb. 1. The Supremo cc-urt of Idaho has Just handed down a decision In the Frnnk Calloway case, In which tho Sunday and midnight closing ordlnanco of this city Is held to bo con stitutional and title sufficient. Tho ordlnanco Just passed upon by tho Supremo court was passed by tho City Council last July. A campaign was In progress In which Sunday closing and midnight closing were Issues. This or dlnanco was adopted during the closing days of tho life of the old Council, as is generally supposed, u political maneuver to affect election results. Mode Test Case. Many of our people really expocted the old Council to repeal It before going out of business. It declined to stultify Itself by doing so. Calloway kept his saloon opon aftor midnight that he might bo arrested and test tho constitutionality ot the law, hence the taking of the case to tho Supremo court. This decision settles tho question In Idaho. Won't Start Suit Yot. John L.

After Mr. Cowan closed, President Mac Kcnzlc announced that the report of frlc tlon between tho sheepmen and cattlemen waa untrue.
