SAN JOSE, Oct. 11.— Complete de
struction to the business •enter of
this city is threatened by, a mysterious
fire which broke out in the Arcade to
night shortiy after 9 o'clock. ,At
midnight it is estimated that the dam
age already, exceeds $500,000, and vthe
fire is still beyond control. Despite
heroic efforts by men of the fire "de
partment, the fire is spreading by
leaps and bounds, and has already en
veloped more than a third of; the block
bounded by First and San! Fernardo
streets. . r;
; Several . firemen-h ave succumbed . and
have * been carried unconscious from 1
the burning 1 buildings! ">'; • /-;\u25a0?'

; first j detected 1h« v fire,' the i entire : In
terior of th? Arcade, , near the north
west corner'of First -and San Fer
nando avenues. Jin ' the heart of , the
business district, was a mass of flames.
The fire department responded prompt
ly, but by th« time the 'engines 'Were
in sefrlce the fire, had spread to Jthe
Cahsh drug store.^ The futility of sav
ing the Arcade quickly /was \u25a0c'en, and
efforts- were 'concentrated to check the
spread of th« flames to the buildings on
the sides and particularly 'ln the rear.
"Directly behind \ the Arcade Cis St.
Joseph's day. school, a Jesuit lnstitutJon,
and a few minutes after^l l • o'clock : the
east> wing of this building caught fire.
Little hope of being able to save this
structure Is held out.' x. .^
Close tto St. -Joseph's ' school -is the
Garden- City bank and it is feared that
this,' ;too>' will' burn. -.Great excitement
prevails.'-'" / j;-
When the bank's officials arrived they
turned out In full force -to remove all
documents and money before the fire
enveloped .the bank. Bystanders as
sisted In the rescue. and it is believed
that before the fire can reach this point
«»11 safes and vaults will \u25a0 be , empty. .
