disappointing. . There were only eix
depositors, the deposits totaling 203.
One man deposited 2100. One woman
and one child opened an account.
Postmaate Randall, however, declared
that tbe business of the first day waa
not a fair test because of the Incle
ment weather. There was a heavy
rain almost all day, and -many far

patrons of the bank did not come to

have signified their Intention of de

There bave been many Inquiries re

Mangled Body of Hero .
Taken From Ruins
The big fire In Portland In which
David Campbell, fire chief, was killed
and John- Young, assistant chief, was
seriously Injured, was witnessed by
several residents of this city. T. H.
Cross, who bas a harness shop at 511
Seventh street, saw the recovery of
the chiefs body. The body was so
badly charred the features of the chief
were hardly recognizable. The plant
of the Union Oil Company, of Cali
fornia, was destroyed, causing a loss
of about $100,000.
With every fire company In Port
land, the flreboat crew and many vol
unteers working, It was more than
three hours before the fire, which was
In tbe Union OH Company's distribut
ing plant, could be subdued and the
debris sufficiently cleared away to per

Terribly burned and bruised, the Ufs

body of Chief Campbell was found 60
feet from the nearest entrance. He
bad reached the entrance before the
severest explosion came. His last vr

saved the lives of the crew of engine
No. 1, for they had been where tbe
north walls would have crushed them,
and at the chief s orders they moved
beyond tbe danger zone. The re
mains were taken to the morgue.

Several hundred men were about

the north side against heaped up cob

the explosion carried the men with

concrete wall of the building, a foot

about to re-enter the burning build

He was hurled across the street, his
head terribly gashed and his body
