Aldei- of Alderson A Sons, civil engineers, with offices in the Stewart building, has Instituted an inquiry as to the where- abouts, living or dead, of two young En- glishmen whom he believes were lured from London to Canada under the im- pression that they were going to become wealthy land owners and farmers. The story as told by Mr. Alderson i3 in substance as follows: Augustus Raw- lings, twenty-eight years old, son of an iron merchant in London and an inti- mate friend of Mr. Aldersou, left that city seven years ago for Canada to be- come a farm pupil, under the auspices of an advertising agency. His family received two letters from him dated in Hamilton, Ont., then, but, nothing more has since been heard of him. His pa- rents ate dead, but he has brothers still living in London and they have long mourned him dead. Mr. Alderson carae to this city five years ago and started in business. While here he corresponded with Francis Beg- bie, whose father as another old friend Mr. Alderson. Young Begbie, who was twenty-one years old, informed Al- lerson-three years ago ih.it ho was about to start for Canada to learn farming and subsequently Mr. Alderson received let- ters from him dated in Toronto. Alder- ion, fearing that his young friend was making a mistake, went to Canada and Jound Begbie located on a small farm back of Toronto. tried to persuade young man to the place, but is Begbie had sunk in the farm he refused move. Mr. Alderson's son jubsequently wrote to Begbie, but the fetter was returned, "not found." The Birchall case attracted Mr. Al- lerson's notice and he is tho im- pression that his young friends have ihared Benwell's late. ilr.

The build- ing was literally blown to pieces. A large section of it landed in the river and the rest is lying in confused heaps for a distance of two blocks. Owing to the reticence of the officers of the sugar refinery and ignorance of the most of their employes, it is nearly impossible to get anything like a complete list of the men who were afc work in the starch building, nor can a correct estimate of the number prohably killed be made. Long after the flames in the ruins had been extinguished a body was dug from beneath a huge pile of brick and mortar and sent over to Yeager'S morgue on Twelfth street. It was so horribly burned and bruised as to be unrecogniz- able. The scattered remains of another body, supposed to be that of a boy, were found by a fire company and turned over to the police, and still later a third body found The driving storm ot sleet and snow that set in shortly after trie explosion, made it nearly impossible for the firemen to continue their search for bobies last night They will resume tho work this morning. in number, all unknown.

Trip of mn Marked by a of aad Much Stormy Weather. FRAXCISCO, March 28. United States man-of-war Iroquois baa arrived from Port Townsend. Prior to sailing from this port, six months ago, the vessel was for a long time at Mare Island, and the Government spent 000 in repairs. The Iroquois arrived at Honolulu on October 18, having taken twenty-eight days in making a trip usually made in seven. November 16 she was ordered to Samoa, and was to call at the Marshall Islands on the way down. On December 23, when sixteen miles north of the line, the piston rod of the engine broke and the Iroquois lay helpless and dependent upon her sails. Making her way with difficulty out of this hazardous locality, orders were given to sail to the west, with the expectation of meeting the coast trade winds and then sailing for Honolulu, miles aVay, in order to get her broken piston rod repaired- The hope of retting into the region of favorable winds was disappointed. The wind blew continually from the opposite direction, and the Iroquois was driven further to the north, until the intention of making Honolulu'bad to be abandoned and San Francisco was headed for instead. By the last of January the prospect of a long and perilous trip was apparent to all the officers and crew, and it became necessary to economize in fuel and food. All the water used on board was distilled and the short supply of coal had to be economized to the last grain. On Febru- ary 15 the crew was put on short rations, and the officers would have been obliged to submit to the same hardship but for their foresight in providing themselves and sailing from San Francisco with ex- tra supplies. The ship arrived at the entrance to the Straits of Fuca on March 1 and was towed to Tort Town- send, where she was provisioned and coaled, and there left for this port.
