Fitzgerald building, in The Dalles,
tumbled oyer Tuesday night. Fif
teen feet from the wall was a small
box building, the front room of which
was occupied by Mrs. J. J. Hogan's
photograph gallery, and the rooms to
the rear were used by Mr. and Mrs,
Hogan for living apartments, This
building is a total wreck, the falling
wall having struck it with full force,
crushing the front part to the ground,
covering all of Mrs. Hognn's photo
graphing outfit with a foot or more
of brick, but fortunately the portion
occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Hogan as
sleeping apartments withstood the
force of the falling debris, and al
though badly damaged, did not fall.
At the time of the accident Mr. and
Mrs. Hogan were sleeping soundly in
a folding-bed, and the first intimation
they had of danger was when the
crash came. Mrs. Hogan wag thrown
out of bed with such violence as to
