The list of fatalities resulting from
the disastrous fire of Wednesday night
In Chinatown now numbers four, but

' There is a general belief that from
fine to six or eight more bodies will be
foimd when the debris is cleared away.
The exact number of missing Chinamen
cannot be told , even by the Chinese
themselves, for they do not keep track
of each other. The coolies come and
go and no one knows them. Many of
the laborers work in the canneries' dur
ing the summer time, returning to Port
land for the winter. They are in and
out of their rooms and it is a difficult
matter to locate them. Even their
friends know nothing about them. :
' It Is stated in Chinese circles that
one more Celestion is known to be mlB'

denizens declare that the list will yet
be much larger. :

Tonight will be a gala one for' the
Woodmen of the World, for besides hav

are to make Governor Chamberlain
ride' the goat, in order to become one of

will carry through the initiation Is a

' Additional : cases of losses of money
and jewelry came to light today. Chin
Duey, a' 'contractor, took money and
jewelry valued at $700 from his safe In
the' "building, and claims some' 6ne
snatched . It from him. A similar ex
perience is reported by Chin Wuey who
claims his loss is about $200.
The Chinese are' greatly agitated ove
the matte and they lay the blame upon
the firemen whllh accusation seems un
just. , But that there was robbery there
Is no doubt, for numerous trunks were
found broken open and . the valuables
gone. . There are still a dozen trunks,
some of them very strong, lying in 'the
Sherlock building, all of which had been
forced open. ! '
The story of the Mongolians is that
after escaping from the burning build
ings, they were kept from returning ty
the police and firemen. .Not a few Cc
lesltals claim that the flremon made use
of this opportunity to loot and ransack,
but they have no proof to offer to jus
tify this statement.
On the other hand this assertion
seems preposterous. The firemen are
men of-good character, and any overt
acts on their part would mean instant
dismissal. They were too . much en
gaged infighting the flames to commit
robbery., and at the same time they were
under the watchful yes of their chiefs
and the police. ' '
Chief Campbell 1 is grieved, at the
charges and he brands them ns false as
far as his knowledge goes. He states,
however, that . should any charges be
proved,', lie will summarily punish any
offender. .The chief also denies' an al,
leged Interview in Which he is quoted at
saying that It was the extra men who
did the stealing if any stealing, at all
was -don by firemen. .
The firemen in turn claim that the
Chinese robbed one another. ; They -were
fighting and struggling with each oiher.
and knowing -where their countrymen
kept their valuables could easily find
tha money and Jewelry. This, they say,
was done by some of, the Chinese1 crim
inals of wfwm they 'say the Chinese
have their share, Another, theory is

Roberta Lang of San Francisco, a pretty
white girl, married Lum Tat Tsee in

Lumber-laden for Sydney, Australia,
the British ship Port Patrick dropped
down below the bridges from the Port
land mm this afternoon, where she will
lay at anchor until tomorrow morning,
when she will leave for tha sea. She
has on board 1,215.388 feet of lumber
and 8.290 laths, comprising 49,000 feet
of timber. The total value of the cargo
amounts to $21,322. The vessel is not
loaded to her full capacity; she could
have taken out 1,600,000 feet.
It is supposed" to be the choicest lum
ber that has been recently loaded at
this port. Every stick of timber is per
fectly free of all blemishes, as the im
porters of Australia will accept no other
kind. On account of their being so par
ticular, loading operations of the . Port
Patrick were necessarily slow. She be
gan taking on cargo November 10, and
a big force of longshoremen has been
constantly employed since that date
filling her hold, Expert lumber-inspectors
were present, and more timber was
thrown aside for- not being, up to the
standard than was put on the ship. Con
sidering the care which had to be exer
cised in selecting the lumber, the agent!
of the vessel state that she made fairly
good despatch, r-r - r - r

, One of the biggest day's work In the
history of Portland was done yesterday,
so far as loading a lumber carrier is
concerned. More than 80,000 feet were
placed on board the German ship .Ar
thur Fitger, which is loading at the
Inman-Poulsen 'mill for the west coast
of South America. - Timber was rolled
aboard in a constant stream all day, and
when the hour of quitting came it was
learned that a new record had been es
tablished. Prior to yesterday, the big
gest day's work represented about 70,
000 feet. . ,
The Arthur Fltger is making unusu
ally quick despatch and expects-to get
away about Sunday. -While the South
American Importers are particular about
the grade of lumber sent them, it is
said they are not a marker compared
with the Australians. Hence, it Is pos
sible for the Fltger to make far better
time than did the Port Patrick.

The most wonderful light Invention
Since the beginning of time has been In
troduced in Portland by the H. W. Man
ning Light and Supply company. Of 48
Third street, this city. The' thing is a
new. styla gas burner that actually burns
the air, with just enough gas mixed with
if to keep the flame alive. In produc
ing light It consumes no more, if as
much, "gas as the ordinary .burner, and
produces a light equal to 300 candles.
19 Incandescent electric lights, and two
burners equal one gas arc light ' Its
brilliancy is simply astounding. It is
marvelous. "" 14 is unbelievable, except
when it Is seen. And the cost $2, Is se
little that it will save the expense of its
purchase within a week, and about half
the gas bill thereafter. Mr. - Manning
has these burners lighted In his store
each evening, and the public is heartily
invited.-to call and -examine them and
sea for themselves the tremendous revo
lution th$y have produced in the lighting
business of the world. Every, person
burning, gas will, be Interested in this
light and Mc Manning will be bleased to
show and explain it to all who may de
sire. Information. - '
When the II. W. Manning Light and
Supply "company opened its idoors in
Portland a few years ago It occupied a
small room on - Stark street between
Front and First It has enlarged its
quarters half a dozen times since then.
and today is dealing in about everything
that lights the universe.- He gasoline
lamps may be seen in. ail towns and
cities of the Northwest until they have
almost driven the larger klndv of kero
sene lumps out of existence. They have
become very popular. Indeed, all over the'
country, and the demand for them Is
becoming enormous. These lights are
a great comfort to the home, especially
to those fond of en evening reading.
They are a delight to this class of their
owners. -vv-..;. x.o,-
