SEATTLE. Wash., June 11. Fire on
the waterfront in the northern part of
the city late last night swept away near
ly all the buildings on 10 blocks and
caused the loss of $1,000,000 worth of
property and probably a number of
lives.
The burned area is bounded by Rail
road avenue Just east of the harbor
front. Third avenue. Wall and Vine
tvtreets.
Not all the buildings in this area
were destroyed, a hurricane blowing
from the west having driven the flames
toward some buildings and spared
others.
A violent wind sprung up about sun
Bet tonight and tore down signs and
drove people from the streets.
At 10:20 o'clock an alarm of fire was
turned in from the large three-story
frame warehouse of Galbraeth, Bacon
& Company, at the foot of Battery
street. By the time the firemen had
reached the scene the whole building
and its inflammable contents were &
roaring furnace.
The wind from off the salt water was
blowing flames and firebrands against
other wooden buildings to the north
and east, and the problem became, not
one of saving property already at
tacked, but to prevent destruction of a
thickly-settled district occupied by old
wooden buildings of the flimsiest con
struction. The firemen could not do much and
only when open spaces were reached
was it possible to stay the flames.
Dozens of lodging-houses and so
called hotels were amon the build
ings destroyed. They were two and
three-story buildings, and burned like
tinder.
The crew of No. 1 fire engine saved
their lives by abandoning the engine
when a sweep of flame bore down on
them.
The largest single loss is on the Oal
braeth bacon warehouse, which, with
Its contents, was probably valued at
$250,000. The three-story Glen Archy
Hotel, a brick building just completed
at Western and Wall streets. was
swallowed up by the flames, as was
the concrete Wall Street Hotel, on the
opposite corner.
Though the fire was under control
at 12:45 A. M., it is Impossible to con
firm reports of the loss of life, be
cause the wooden ruins are still burn
ing. Besides burning the Galbraith-Bacon
warehouse, the plant of the Seattle Sheet
Metal works, and .the ice plant and ware
house of the Chlopeck Fish Company,
also were destroyed.
As soon as the first company of fire
men arrived on the scene, a '-general
alarm was sounded as it was feared that
the entire district north of Bell street
and east of Railroad avenue would be
swept by the flames.
A (general alarm was sounded and fire
apparatus was hurried to the scene from
all parts of the city.
Fire brands were carried several blocks
and incipient blazes broke out in isolated
places, but were promptly extinguished
by volunteer watches.
At 11:30 o"clock the' fire had swept the
district bounded by Railroad avenue on
the west. Bell street on the south. Sec
ond avenue on the east and Vine street
on the north. At that hour the fire had
Jumped Second avenue and was spread
ing north toward Denny Way.
Policemen rushed through the district
north and east of the fire warning the
people to vacate.
The Pacific Hospital, at Vine and
First street, was in great danger for
a time. All the ambulances in the city
were pressed into service and patients
were removed to the City Hospital, a
mile south of the dangerous zone.
It is reported that 20 people were
killed when the fire destroyed lodging-houses-
near the. Galbraeth warehouse.
A policeman who went through the
district Just after the fire started said
there was no time for the lodgers in
that section of the burned area to
escape.
Ellsworh Auger, aged 23, was struck
ly a live wire and was rendered un
sjcious. He was taken to a hospital
but showed no improvement this morn
ing, and his condition is considered
critical.
S. Myrono was seriously burned about
the eyes and it is feared he will suffer
loss of his sight.
Fred Risley. a patrolman, was se
verely injured about the spine when he
fell through a floor in the Wallflrst
Hotel while searching for bodies.
Sixty horses were burned in a stable
on Railroad avenue.
The district burned had 1 long been
considered a dangerous risk, and in
surance rates were so high that most
of the light wooden buildings carried
little or no insurance.
The tangle of, live electric wires in
the streets was a great hindrance to the
firemen. On certain planked streets
the wet boards became electrified from
broken wires and gave shocks to per
sons walking over them.
The district swept by the fire last night
comprises a number of buildings which
escaped the big fire of 1889 and which
formed a temporary resting place for
business houses which were driven out
of their own quarters by that memor
able conflagration.
The buildings, frame, were three and
four stories high. One of them, the
Bellevue Hotel, offered about the only
hotel accommodations to visitors in the
city after the "89 fire.
At the time, it was thought by some
investors-, that the business district of
the city would be permanently located
in that section. However, when re
building began, business drifted down
town again, and some men who had
erected large buildings, paid for their
bad Judgement in many dollars. Of
late years, the buildings have been oc
cupied by small manufacturing con
cerns, stores, saloons, eating places and
lodging-houses.

S000 OUT, DESPITE RAIN
SOCIETY CIRCUS GALA AFFAIR
OX WET FIELD.
Drills, Dances and Riding Stunts
Are Perfect Children . to
Take Part Today.
Despite the rainy, , stormy and de
cidedly disagreeable night, 5000 people
Journeyed to Multnomah Field Friday
night to see the second performance
of the Portland Hunt Club-Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club Society Circus,
held in connection with the Portland
Rose Festival, and enjoyed the big cir
cus as though the weather conditions
had been perfect. The large grand
stand was crowded almost to the limit.
The circus, despite the wet rings
and platforms, was carried out with
even more snap and vigor than the
first performance Wednesday night.
In the gavotte. Geisha girl and horn
pipe dances the performers showed a
gameness that could hardly be equaled.
The dancers were wet to the skin from
the downpour and the floor was ankle
deep with wet sawdust, but they went
smilingly through the dances. The
gavotte was gone through more per
fectly last night than at either of the
other performances.
"I want to express my entire appre
ciation," said Robert Krohn, physical
director of Multnomah Club, who is
managing the show, last night, "for
the supreme efforts on the part of all
the actors and especially the young
sters, who, despite being drenched to
the skin, smilingly went through their
parts with almost heroism, and I also
wish to express my appreciation to the
large number of people who ventured
out into the storm to see the Society
Circus."
The big tents which were ' erected
over the rings and platform failed to
stand the heavy rain, and as a result
the platform was drenched, making it
necessary to spread sawdust on the
floor.
The rings were miniature lakes, and
the hippodrome track was a small rivu
let, but nevertheless the Hunt Club
riders went through their drills and
races and showed the same pretty
formations that were exhibited Wed
nesday. The class drill, with 24 riders par
ticipating, was given in the big open
air arena In the drenching rain, and
the gTitty women and men riders went
through every little step. This drill
was prettier last night than on the
opening night.
The tandem drill, also given in the
arena, was prettily executed. The lead
horses were clothed in white harness,
while the rear animals were harnessed
in black, and with the women in black
and the men in red the whole made
a very striking picture.
William -Dailey performed on the
Weather permitting the Society Cir
cus will hold the last performance this
afternoon, beginning at 2 o'clock. This
will be the largest and best- perform
ance of the three, for several acts by
tne little children that could not be
given at night will be shown, besides
the regular acts. Two of the new fea
tures will be a ribbon dance by junior
girls of the Multnomah Club, and a
partial reproduction of the East Side
school children's parade, which was
held yesterday. These acts will be
staged on the hippodrome track.
TROLLEY GAR KILLS Ml
GEORGE D i'COTT BEXIEVED TO
BE VICTIM'S NAME.
Walks on Track in Front of Ap
proaching Train and Dies of In
juries Sustained.
A man believed to be George Ducott, a
longshoreman, 53 years of age, was
struck by an inbound Oregon City elec
tric train in the O. W. P. yards at the
foot of Hawthorne avenue Friday, night
and received injuries from which he died
en route to the hospital a few moments
later. The body was taken to the morgue.
According to the statements made by
witnesses, Ducott deliberately walked on
the tracks immediately in front of the
moving tram. Motorman C. S. Whit
combe avers that he did, not see the man
until his train was but a few feet away
and when it was too late to avert the
fatality.
Ducott was struck by the front vesti
bule and hurled a distance of 15 feet to
ward the curb. The train was brought
to a standstill and members of the train
crew placed him aboard. He was rushed
to the destination of the train at East
Morrison and Water streets and conveyed
to a waiting ambulance, but died before
a hospital was reached.
Tattoo marks found on the body at the
morgue served in making a partial iden
tification. Inscribed on the right fore
arm in India ink is the name "George
Ducott." Directly beneath this inscrip
tion the phrase "In God We Trust" is
penned. A membership card bearing
the number 6" in the Longshoremen's
Union was the only scrap of paper found
on his person.
The man was frightfully crushed about
the body. Every rib on his left side was
broken. The shatered ends are believed
to have pierced the heart and caused ..is
death.
The Midland Farmers' Co-Operative Asso
ciation. England, was formed in 1906. It
now has 401 members, covers the counties
of Nottingham. Derby and Leicester, and is
extending its operations into Lincolnshire.
There are larger farmers' societies in the
country, one in Wales having 9X and one in
buflolk and vicinity with 1000 members.
NORTH COAST WINS
Common-User Clause Scorned
by Milwaukee at Spokane.
NEW DEPOT TO BE BUILT
Council Grants Month for Other
Company to Accept Milwaukee
Reiterates Its Determination
to Refuse Terms. "
SPOKANE, Wash., June 11. (Spe
cial.) If the Chicago, Milwaukee &
Puget Sound Railroad persists In Its
announced determination not to accept
a franchise containing a common user
clause, the North Coast will be per
mitted to take up the union depot
franchise to be proposed by the Coun
cil and construct a union passenger
station, which is to be open for en
trance by other railroads at any future
date.
This decision was reached at a meet
ing of the City Council committee of
the whole this afternoon, and imme
diately followed a conference between
all the members of the Council' and
Robert E. Strahorn, president of the
North Coast.
According to the terms of the reso
lution, the roads have SO days to ac
cept the franchises and if in that time
the Milwaukee does not file its ac
ceptance the North Coast Railroad will
be permitted to file Its acceptance of
the union depot franchise singly.
Regarding his offer to the Council,
Mr. Strahorn said:
"We hope that the Milwaukee can
still be persuaded to come in, but if
they cannot see their way Hear to do
so, the North Coast, with the co-operation
of the City Council and the
people of Spokane, will build a union
depot alone and accept a common-user
provision, which will allow all future
roads coming in to use it."
Mr. Strahorn refused to state whether
or not he would spend $1,000,000 on a
union depot, as has been planned for
the North Coast and Milwaukee to do
Jointly.
A protracted conference between
local Milwaukee officials and H. H.
Field, of Seattle, general counsel of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget
Sound, who arrived in the city this
morning resulted this noon in the an
nouncement that the road would con
tinue to "stand pat" in its refusal to
adopt the common-user clause ac
cepted by the North Coast.

Calls Off Ceremony.
WASHINGTON, June 11. Brodie L.
Duke came quietly to Washington yes
terday to negotiate his fourth mar
riage contract, and after carefully laii
plans ran afoul of a Presbyterian cler
gyman's aversion to divorce.
Mr. Duke had planned to be married
at 4 P. M., to Miss- Wylanta Roschelle,
of Durham, N. C where are situated
his tobacco interests and his mag
nificent estate.
Dr. Donald C. McLcod, pastor
of the first Presbyterian Church, had
agreed to perform the ceremony.

that Brodie L. Duke, the tobacco man,
three times married, twice divorced,
and on several , occasions involved In
marital difficulties, the chief of which
involved trouble with his latest wife,
the late Alice Webb Duke, was to be
married, and reporters and photograph
ers gathered at the First Presbyterian
Church. Half an hour before the ap
pointment, Rev. Mr. McLeod arrived
and requested the photographers to
leave. To the reporters he said there
was to be no wedding.
"Have you refused to marry Brodie
L. Duke on the ground that he has
figured in the divorce courts?"
"Well, that is not for me to say," was
the reply. "You are a good guesser."
Subsequently Mr. McLeod declared he
had agreed to perform the : ceremony
not having known the applicants
marital history.
. Miss Roschelle was highly indignant
over the notoriety attending the at
tempted marriage and announced her
intention of returning immediately to
her home in Durham.

day," she said, "but I don't know now
whether I will or not."

representative to Katanga who is charged
with the task of studying local conditions
with the evident object of enabling Ger

The Hamburg journal points out that
Katanga is fabulously rich in copper, that
labor is easily obtainable, and that as
food Is plentiful and cheap, wages are
low. Moreover, the climate is good, ma

LONDON, June 11. (Special.) Miss
Ellen Jane Frost, of Wandsworth, re
lated amusing stories of her engage
ment to Edward Oughton, of South
Kensington, - In the London Sheriff's

"When he visited my father's house,"
she said, "he would get a book and He
on the sofa all the evening, taking no
notice of anyone. Sometimes he would
sleep for hours.
"If we went out together he would
put me In an omnibus at 12 o'clock on
a foggy night and leave me to get
home as best I could. Obviously he
was trying to shake me.
"Once he took me to the Zoo. We
were out from 10 in the morning to 5
in the evening, and during all that time
I had nothing to eat."
Mr. Warburton contended that there
was nothing against Mr. Oughton ex
cept that he was a little sleepy and did

done, but the jury returned a verdict
of $1000 damages and costs in favor of
Miss Frost.

Horses' Eyes Are Cut Out, Bullocks
Are Shot a,iid Owners' Lives
Are Threatened.
DUBLIN, June 1L (Special.) A, shock
ing outrage has been perpetrated at
Ballyeushen, near Corofin. On a grozing
farm there, which is let to various ten

completely cut out. Last week a big
cattle-drlvo took place In the Carron dis
trict, over 40 bullocks, the property of
Lord Inchiquin, being cleared off the farm
of Ballyllne and scattered over the coun
try. In one case a number of cattle were
covered with blue paint and thereby ren
dered unfit for sale; in another a bullock
was shot dead, and in a third a quan
tity of turf was destroyed by fire. All
these doings were incidents In the
agrarian campaign. A farmer named
Holmes was awarded compensation for
damage done to gates on his holding at
Ballyglass. which is wanted for distribu
tion among the neighboring small ten
ants. It was stated in evidence that the
claimant's life had been threatened. A
letter sent to him, headed "United Irish
League," and signed "Captain Moonlight,"
was read by Sergeant McKernan. The
writer warned Holmes to give up pos
session of Ballyglass, to which he had no
claim.
'We have been taking it too easy. We
thought you would settle with us, but
we will make a corpse of you if you per
sist any further. Our intention now is
freedom or the gallows. Don't think It
will go easy with you. Have no more to
do with it, or your lamp of life will be
soon extinguished."
At Corofiln, on Tuesday, a young man
was charged with firing revolver shots
for the purpose of intimidating three
persons and compelling them to leave the
employment of James Nagle. a farmer, of
Leana. In the witness box the latter
stated that he had had a great deal of

where a farmer named Conroy was fired
eut and wounded while seated near an
open door. Conroy Is one of a number of
tenants' who outbid the people of an ad
jacent village for a farm recently dis
posed of, and as a result he and his
friends have to be protected by the po
lice against threatened reprisals on the
part of their neighbors. Just after the
police patrol had passed the assailant ap
proached the house and fired at short
range through the open door.

AN EVENT OF UNUSUAL IMPORTANCE
TO HOMEBUILDER AND INVESTOR
FOR OVER A MONTH now passersby on Hawthorne avenue have watched with interest the progress of th
fifty or more teams which have been busily at work grading the splendid tract of land west and south
of the beautiful Burrell home on Hawthorne avenue and East Twenty-sixth street, and many have beer
eagerly waiting for the announcement they knew was bound to appear, which would signify that the tract
had at last been placed upon the market.
"Well, the work of putting: In the Improvements and let me say that they are of the very best, of a kind
you may be sure, such as a piece of ground like this deserves is now far advanced.
On the south end of the tract where work has been in progress for a longer time, the improvement of sev
eral of the blocks is completed, with the exception of the hard-surface pavement, and lots ready to build on,
and the paving has been ordered and the Hassam Paving Company has agreed to commence work immediately.
Next Sunday just one week from today I will place on sale on easy terms 60 of these lots at prices rang
ing from $1700 to $2000 for inside lots, and from $2250 to $2650 for corners.
As a special inducement to those who will act most promptly, and to thoroughly advertise this property, I
will make the following proposition:
My regular terms are 20 per cent cash and 2 per cent per month, with interest at 6 per cent. To the first
ten purchasers of lots I will allow a cash discount of one. hundred dollars; thus a $1700 lot would cost but
$1600, and the terms Instead of being $340 cash, would be but $240.
If the customer wishes to pay all cash and get a deed at once I will allow a discount of 10 per cent.
