Four Lives Now Known To ,
Ila-re Been l.ost.. '
Sa attlk , June 8. Things have quieted
down considerably- since last night
The ciiy is still under military patrol
and admittance to the burnt district is
had. onlv ' by means of pas3es. The
loss of life' is now. placed at not more
than two persons. , Last night passed off
quietly. Several attempts at burglary
in the residence portion of th city were
made. One thief was' arrested in a
hquse, and is now in jail. A number of
acts of violence during the fire are now
being reported. Several persons were
attacked . by roughs. ' and ' severely
handled. " .' '., . - '
The loss is growing larger steadily.
It is now estimated at $20,000,000. As
all the stocks of goods were lost, aside
from the buildings, it will probably
reach that figure. , ;
The houseless are rapidly being taken
care of. The Tacoma relief committee
is doing noble work, and has fed hun
dreds. '1' hey have put jip large tents
adjoining the armory, wbere"ihev are
serving meals. The apnory is befnft
used as ii citizens' police headquarters
and for a free eating place. It is
crowded nil i he time. ; '

and by Monday a large number of eat
ing houses will be opened. Temporary
eating stands are ranged all along the
sidewalk and men are crowded about
them eating sandwiches and drinking
coffee. .: - - '
It has been decided that no wooden
buildings will be allowed to go up in the
burnt district. Front street, Commer
cial, Second and other business streets
will bo widened to ninety feet, and -extended
on to the water's edge.
The telegraph facilities , are A over
crowded, and it will be impossible to get
full reports through during the day.
SYMPATHY FR3M PENNSYLVANIA.
Harrisburg, Pa., June 8. Governor
Beaver has asked Governor Hill to join
him in a proclamation to the people of
New York and Pennsylvania, inviting
them to make special contributions
through the churches tomorrow, for the
relief of the sufferers ofkthe disaster by
fire at Seattle, W. T., and suggested
that those collections be immediately
forwarded to a central committee con
sisting of Ex-President Cleveland and
Jay Gould, for transmission to the ap
propriate authorities in Washington ter
ritory. - The governor has not yet heard
from Governor Hill, but is hourly ex
pecting an assent to the proposition.
" THE INSURANCE.
San Francisco, June 8. The insur-.
ance summary, telegraphed last night,
represents the total of risks in the
burned district of Seattle. This includes
a total of $1,904,000 held by 'companies
represented in San Francisco. Of this
total, local companies of San Francisco
held risks aggregating $283,000. The
remainder was represented in eastern
and foreign companies. In addition to
this total, six Oregon companies held
risks aggregating $250,000, ' and fifteen
small Washington Territory, Dakota and
Iowa comganies had risks aggregating
$150,000. The detailed losses of these
companies cannot be ascertained. This
makes an aggregate ot $2,304,000.
Forty insurance adjusters ' left for
Seattle tonight, and stated that the
losses of the companies represented in
San Francisco would be paid in full by
sight drafts. , '
' Seattle, June 10 If a stranger un
informed of last week's fire had
suddenly dropped into Seattlo to-day,
and had walked down Second street, he
would have thought he was in the
midst of some street fair. The thor
oughfares were -filled with moving
crowds of people and vehicles of all
descriptions,, while the sidewalks were
lined with i the booths and tents of
hawkers and venders', whose cries, as
they proclaimed,, ! their nondescript
wares and edibles the clang -off the bell
of the electric cars, and ,'tie shouts of
the drivers of many , wagons, added to
the usual confusion of a bur. street,
gave it the irresistible holiday appear
ance. aL 1 "". .'
But when the eye-. was turned ' to the
south and west, it there utet a' scene of
smoking desolation tha. divested the
scene entirely, of attractiveness, and
presented the aful' Extent of last
week's great disaster. ijsThe walls o
buildings yet stand"? griia and gaunt
amongst the smouldering: Uebjis, while
the streets are choked with lop'se bricks, I
junk and a potpourri ot trasn that in
places render them almof t impassable.
Sentries pace to and fro m Ahe bounds
of the burnt district, and challenge all
comers who ..try to . pa?s their lines.
None are , admitted in the daytime
without a' pass from the military au
thorities, while at night the countersign,
changed daily, is absolutely demanded
by the vigilant sentries"
But Seattle has already girded up her
loins and started in earnest the work of
building again the 'metropolis of Wash
ington. Gangs of workmen are 'busily
engaged oh -the water, front, removing
debris and repairing . and replacing the
ruined wharves. . Attacks , .have been
made upon the walls of 1 the burned
bui'ldineiSr and they will immediately be
removed, and work fon new structures
Menjjj'ejjiwaged vW 'Ve cabo lines.
The 'Front street line-win be"masteu up
in four 'days. The Yesler avenue line,
already 1 closed down before' the fire,
cannot be started for several weeks.
Telegraph, telephone and electric
light wires are being rapidly replaced.
The telephone syBtein will be again
started in a few days, and the electric
light in a few weeks. ' The waterworks
are already in operation.
Kailway and steamboat transporta
tion has hardly beeh interrupted by
the conflagration, though considerable
inconvenience has been experienced by
both in landing passengers. , :
Business houses are finding locations
in tents inside, and temporary, struct
ures outside the fire limits. Profess-,
ional nien are " opening up offices in
houspg and where they Can secure
The schools started up again this
morning, and all the churches, except
the .Trinity Episcopal and Methodist
Protestant, which were burned, held
service in the usual A places yesterday.
The two houseless congregations held
services in temporary' quarters.
The daily newspapers are all issuing
as csual. - ,
Offers of aid continue to pour in, to
gether with much money and, more pro
visions. ' : . ( ' '- i. :
The worl of feeding the hungry at the
armory and the Tacoma relief quarters
goes on, and thousands take .advantage
of the free meals and beds. , ,
Henry Villard was again in the city
today and gave $1000 toward the relief
fund. - . - " i '
A meeting of the committee on re
platting the city was held this morning,
and the views of .property ownersheard
on the plan of widening and straighten
ing the streets. It was decided to stay
by the original plan, except on X esler '
avenue, which will be left at sixty feet
in Width. Front and Commercial will
be joined and straightened. Eaihoad
avenue will be widened, and the city,
when rebuilt, will present altogether a
much more sightly and commodious ap
pearance than heretofore.
The number of property owners ,who.
have announced that they,vvin buiid and
rebuild is Very many, and if pressnt in
tentions are .carried , out this year,
Seattle will have far more businessl
bricks within a year than it did before
the fire . . ' 1
A large number of insurance adjusters
are at work on the losses, and all say
they will pay without any quibbling.
' Herbert Folger; manager for the New
Zealand Insurance Company in Oregon
and Washington, made arrangements
yesterday for the transfer of $30,000 for
the immediate payment of Seattle losses.
Ladd & Til ton authorized Dexter, Horton
& Co., of Seattle to cash checks in favor
Of policy holders to that-amount. Mr.
Folger still hold an unimpaired letter of
credit on London for $25,000, available
m the event of other fires occurring.
Seattle, June 12 Tonight about 10
o'clock a sentry back of the old Safe De
posit building saw a man approaching
him on his hands and knees. When a
halt was ordered the man heeded not.
but crawled stealthily on, and so the
guard fired. Then the man with a cry,
jumped to his feet and rushed down to
the ' water and jumped into the bay.
The authorities were aroused, and a
vigorous search . was made ' for the
marauder, but he could not be. found.
The guard, however, declares positively
that he shot the fellow and that he must
have drowned when he jumped into the
. The fire has not been without its com
pensations, for it has developed the
humorous genius of many who were
never before supposed to possess the
modicum of wit. This humor finds ex
pression in sign-bbards placed on tents
in which new business has beeu started.
A few samples are:
""Forced to remove on account of
matic changes." ;".
"Glad to be on earth." '
"Slightly disfigured but still in'
ring." ... ... . - . , ' ; ' -
"Our name is Phoenix." ) , '

' "New Seattle or bust," and so on ad
infinitums , 1 ' .. ' .''"..
Many contributions were received, to:
day, among them $8000 from Portland.
Contributions now aggregate about $70,
000, The relief committee have reduced
their work to so thorough a syste n
that it is believed few have been missed
in the search for nedy persons. 1
The burnt district presents a scene of
great activity. Hundreds of men are at
work all along the water front rebuild
ing wharves. The Oregon Improve
ment Company expects to have its coal
bunkers ready for the shipment of coal
within three-weeks. - '
Seattle, June 12. Two hundred men
were- put to work by the city today,
upon recommendation of.the general
relief committee. They were placed
under charge of Colonel Haines, of the
First Regiment, and will be engaged on
the streets in cleaning brick, etc. They
will be paid $2 per day and will be
charged 15 cents for every meal taken at
the armory. -
' ' Two hundred Italian laborers, brought
here for work on the Seattle Lake Shore
& Eeastern by Contractor Ehman today,
went out on a strike because the con
tractor refused to pay two boys full
wages. " Then they went to the armory
where they expected they would be fed
during the strike, but the relief commit
tee issued Orders that they were to have
nothing to eat there, and the probability
is" that they will have to go to work
again. - -
. It is noteworthy that during the past
week there have been but thirty arrests
by the police alone, one-half the usual
number. Of these, twenty-five were
drunk and vagrants and five larcenists.
The ' decreased number is due to the
absence of saloons and the presence of
militia. r . '
The saloon-keepers of the city thought
they would hold a mass meeting today,
to protest against the action of the
authorities in shutting up the saloons.
They would have held meeting, but
only five-or six were present, and so
they decided to postpone it till evening;
but only seven could be found who
could be persuaded to assemble, so the
evening meeting was postponed, until
The day at Johnstown.
Johnstown, June 12. Order is com
ing out of i chaos, and the military
discipline has shown its effects at the
end of the first day. . ; .
The .grand exodus of workmen has
been going on all day. As fast as the
money was handed out of the paymas
ter's bands, the workmen boarded the
trains, on which their picks and carts
were loaded, and left Johnstown without
any expressed regrets. ' .
The work upon the ruins lias been
nearly at a standstill all . day, but to
morrow morning General Hastings
expects to have 2500 men at work. The
new plan of canvassing the city, and
systemizingthe distribution of supplies
which continue to come in freely, is
being tried. .-..'.
There is but little chancre, in the
health situation. ,
Ten bodies were recovered to-day' by
the small force of , men working.
A meeting was held in Alma hall by
the citizens of Johnstown to-dav. at
which the leading business men who
survived the flood were present. Re
marks were made1 by seyeral of those
present touching the Veat work
before them and the neceSsoVTy of united
and individual action to rebuild the
town and the cultivation of fortitude to ;
bear up under the burdens so suddenly "
thrust upon them. s Resolutions were
adopted thanking James Scott ,'for hia '
untiring efforts to bring order .out of
chaos, and of the people of Pittsburg in
particular, and the citizens, of the United
States generally oi their prompt; and
generous assistance. V
The bureau of registration reported
to-day that 15,678 survivrrs had regis
tered. Many registered twice, .and
ome a dozen times, which caused the
list to run up to 21 .000. ' . '

approaching completion. The number
of bodies recovered here is 1192, of these
G28 have been identified.
A IMaaattrous Cave-In,
Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 12. A dis;
astrous cave-in took place here late this
afterndon. The Hollenbeck and Hell
man mines are situated under a thickly
settled portion of the city. They are a
thousand feet deep; and for years past ,
no coal was supposed to be mined in
that portion underlying the city, tor fear
the earth would sink. ' :
At 4 o'clock a crash came and one of
the principal thoroughfares of the city
is filled with crevices, from which gaa
escaped in large volumes. The owners
of the houses are greatly alarmed.
The men in the mines had all they
could do to escape with their lives.
Some of the mules were caught in the
workings and killed. Eight hundred
men and ooys are thiown out of work.
The mine owners' losses will be over
$100,000, and the losses to the property
owners on the surface will bo double
this amount. - ' ' - ;
From the Kitchen to a mansion.
San Francisco, June 13. Mrs. Emma
Crumbline applied at a labor bureau a '
few days ago for employment. Today,
she returned there, and announced that
she had fallen heir to an estate valued
at $9,000,000, and willed to her by the
mother of her deceased husband. She
stated that she would start for the east
