Then they joined with the tens of thou

platforms were capable of passing
15,000 persons an hour, it was re
ported, and they were open for more
than four hours. And then thousands
of people saw and cheered the relic
from a distance without crossing the
platforms while additional throngs
watched It as it was moved along

The coming was heralded by the blast

thousand or more people were at the

along the street thousands of people
taw the relic and cheered. It was in
charge of a squad of Portland's largest
policemen on the way to the Court
The car reached the Courthouse at
7:20 o'clock and soon afterward the
platforms were put in place and the
crowd began to file past. The street
was crowded when the bell arrived and
. they kept coming in thousands from
every direction as crowded streetcars
emptied their loads into the streets
near the bell. Before 8 A. M. people
were lined up a half dozen deep down
the center of Fourth street nearly to

FLAMES WIPE OUT
HEART OF VALDEZ
FIFTY BUILDINGS BURN, WITH
LOSS OF $500,000.
United States Troops Aid in Fight
ing Fire With Dynamite and
Later Guard Burned Area.
VALDEZ. Alaska, July 15. Flames
that were checked only after a safety
line had been established about them
bv the use of dynamite wiped out the
business section of this town today
with a loss of $500,000. United States
troops from Fort Liscum aided in
fighting the fire and tonight are stand
ing guard over the burned area In
which 50 buildings were located. No
loss of life 'has been reported.
There had been no rain in weeks,
and strong winds from off the huge
glacier that discharges its debris Just
behind the town fanned the flames as
they devoured the wooden buildings.
The biggest loss was that of the
Valdez Dock Company, which is placed
at about $100,000. S. Blum & Co., gen
eral merchants, lost $50,000. Alto
gether 50 buildings were burned, with
losses ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.
The Prospector Publishing Company,
publisher of the Dally Prospector, and
the Weekly Miner, saved enough type
to issue its dally on wrapping paper,
using a proof-press for printing.
Valdez, a town of about 500 inhabi
tants, is situated at the head of Port
Valdez, Prince William Sound, and
gained commercial importance because
it was the coast terminus of the Fair-banks-Valdez
trail, which was for
many years the only Winter acute be
tween the lower Yukon and the coast.
Three thousand prospectors used the
train in 1838, when the gold excite
ment was at its height. Much placer
gold was found in the country tribu
tary to Valdez, but the fields have been
worked out. There are promising gold
quartz ledges near Valdez.
' The bodies of many prospectors who
fell into the crevasses of the glacier
back of the town are still entombed.
The streams from the glacier in some
hot Summers have been a peril to the
town, threatening to wash it away.
