Seattle, the Metropolis of Wash ington Territory, Almost Swept from Earth. Thirty-one Blocks in the Business Center of the City Destroyed by Fire. SEATTLE, W. T., June 8.—What was the business part of ttiis city is now nothing but smouldering ruins and de bris. Fire broke out in the basement of a two-story frame building on the south west corner of Front and Madison streets owned by Mrs. Margaret J. Pentes. The fire originated in some turpentine which caught tire in some way. The first story, which was leased by the Seattle Shoe company, and the upper floor being oc cupied for offices, was' soon ablaze. Although the volunteer fire department responded promptly to the alarm they could do little or nothing to cheek the tlames, The building, like most of the others of its kind in the business center, was not detached, but was a corner one of a row of frame buildings all joined together and of various heights. They were of tinder and proved an easy prey to the flames. Adjoining to the first building was Dietz & Myers' wholesale liquor store. The barrels of liquor Kxplotled with Terrific Reports as soon as the fire reached them, scatter ing the cinders far and near. In a short time the entire square, composing the Denny block in which was a confection ery store. Gil more & Co. 's real estate office and several other establishments, including a number of professional of fices and some lodging apartments, were soon destroyed. An effort was made to flood the Coleman building on Front street to the south, but to no avail. The flames spread across Marion street to the Palace and Opera House sa loons. In less than half an hour Another Square Was I.iiicl in Ashes. This took A. S. Smith's grocery, Mer chant's wholesale confectionery, a fruit store, J. \V. Lang & Company's drug store, John Spencer's plumbing and steam fitting establisnment, R. J. Gra ham's tailoring establishment, Edgar Bayatvs pawn shop, the Palace restau rant, Gering fe O'Connell's jewelry store, Souster's barber shop, Lesly's clothing store and Dobell & Marion's clothing store. While this square was burning the Opera tiouse block on the east side of Front street, between Madison and Marion, caught fire in the upper stories. The building, a three-story brick struct ure, owned oy George Frye and valued at $120,000, was soon destroyed. With it went the Seattle pharmacy, the Golden Rule bazaar, Harris & Oo.'s dry goods store, Abernethy's shoe store, Crouse & Co."s undertaking establishment, La tour's dry goods house, Broadman's paint and oil establishment. The Kenyon block, a little to the nortli of where the fire began, was also reduced to ashes. In this block was the job printing estab lishment of The Evening Times, Vuen & Viugh's music store and Harie's tailor shop. From the opera house block the fire spread and Oiiiokly Swallowed I'p the Square to the south. This square consisted of a two-story frame building occupied by E. C. Lobe's bazaar, the California cloth ing house, Gordon Bros.' tailoring estab lishment, the Oriental Bazaar and sev eral other big concerns. The fire department struggled bravely to save the most valuable part of Front Btreet, between Columbia and Yessler streets, which contained a fine row of brick buildings two and three stories high, and where four banks had their offices. The Bank of Commerce, Mer chant's National, First National and the- Washington Guarantee and Loan association and Savings Bank. The row consisted of a corner block occupied by Toklas, Singerinan's & Co.'s wholesale dry goods store, the Union block, the Parin building, the San Francisco cloth ing house, the Star block, the Arcade building and Yesler bjock on Centre square. In Central square all the telegraph of fices were situated. The Safe Deposit company also had a building in this row. Kxploitioiis of Giant Powder Were Useless to prevent the awful spread of the flames, and clouds of suffocating smoke. The fire spread north and south from where it (started, covering a distance of one mile. The flames totally destroyed every newspaper, hotel, telegraph office, railroad depot and wharf, the entire water front, including all wharves and docks, coal bunkers and railroad tracks, the wholesale quarter and everything south of Union street and west of Sec ond street, and reaching around to the gas works above Fourth street on Jack son. Sixty-four acres comprises the burned district. It is not yet known whether there is much loss of life. Great privation is felt among the poor classes, as nearly every restaurant and grocery in Seattle was "consume! by the fire. The burned district now presents the aspect of a huge oven burning coals and threatens even further destruction. Crowd* of People, Pennflm sttiti Home- LETS*, wandered through the town all night. The militia and the police are guarding property against thieves and vandals. Over 100 arrests have already been maue. The Daily News will publish to-morrow. About thirty jeople were near Toklas & Singerman's building when it fell and manv of them were crushed. Over #20,000,000 Contained. SEATTLE.
