I know of nearly 400 cases In my own district in which natives were buried allvo and many of these were women and chil dren.

Twelve hotels and moru than a score of small buildings adjoining thu board \viuk which Is built along the ocean edge woio destroyed yesterday by a llio which swept the bcacli front for two long blocks , from Illinois avenue to Now York avenue. The loss will ex ceed $750,000. In this respect the conflagration IB the most disastrous that ban ever visited this city.

The fire was discovered shortly after 9 a. in. and for nearly live hours the flames raged with such violence as to threaten the city with destruc tion. All of the burned buildings were frame structures and the flames 'anned by a strong west wind swept along the beach front with amazing rapidity. The Tarleton hotel was soon a pile of smouldering debris and he flames fed on the small stores and booths between Illinois and Kentucky avenues until they reached the Strat- brd hotel , which was soon enveloped. The faery tongues leaped to the Berkc- oy , adjoining , and in a few minutes he New Holland , the Bryn Mawr , the Svard and the Stlckney , all located near the beach , were doomed. The ocal flic department worked well and willingly , but was unable to cope with he flames and it was found necessary o send to Philadelphia and Cainden for aid. The former city sent three engines and two came down from amden. Their presence here was of vast assistance to the local fire men , but It was not until an hour after their arrival that the fire 'could be said to be thoroughly under control. Just as the special train bearing the Philadelphia firemen arrived , a burnIng - Ing brand set fire to the center of Young's pier , near Tennessee avenue. Meantime the flames bad comniunl catetl with the Rio Grande , the Mor | vine and the Academy hotels. For a few minutes Young's pier burned fiercely , but the firemen succeeded in confining the flames to Marine hall , which was situated in the center.'This structure was entirely destroyed , hi sectlng the pier. Excitement at Hotels. During the progress of the fire the wildest excitement prevailed among ! the guests of the hotels , which later became prey to the flames. With the exception of the Tarleton and the Bryn Mawr , all of the hostelrles were I open for the season , and most of them wore fairly well filled. In most cases the guests had sufficient time to pack their trunks and grips and those who did not do this carried their persona effects to places of safety in the best manner possible under the clrcum stances. The beach appeared to be the most'suitable depository and many nondescript heaps of clothing , bedding ding- and furniture appeared In the sand.
