valors, hundreds of loaded ears ann i vast quantities of freight, including I 2u,«J0u bale.-, of cotton, were destroyed ogi'ilici with a large number of small taidences.

Conservative estimates figure th*- im- | mediate loss by the fire at $5,000,000. ’ divided as follows Two elevator, j warehouses, sheds. $2,500,000 23,000 s

Th** railroad company tarried its i nn insurance and the contents of the various elevators and sheds were Injured tii local and foreign agencies The wharves covered 4,050 feet, over a distance of ten blocks Of this wharfage :>,f*00 feet and what it contained was destroyed, their remainder at the upper end of tin* terminals being saved through the fact that the wind blew strongly in the opposite direction The dtgroved wharf cost $500,000. Klevator “D.” lensed to Harris Scott A company. of Chicago rent 8100000 when built and elevator *F which was operated bv ihe Illinois Central cost ?400 OOO
\pparentl> no lives were lost in the fire though th< r* were many narrow cscai*es of thi "c w ho were «ngaged n fighting the flames owing to it** rapid spread, and lives were const an t-; ly endangered bv debris of all kinds i thai was w h fried lh rough tho air. The escape of the two ftrc *'*ngines wa* cut off and their • rews had to run for their lives. l)ri\- r Charles Richard son of No f> being painfully hurt.
The tire started !' fli" ix>nveyors to elevator “ D. It : read vvith remarkable rapidity sparks dropping into oil barrels on the wharf and extending the flames in every direction Ten ships were lying- at th# docks when the fire started and ill except two escaped without damage The Indian, of the Leland line. had her rails, cabin house mast . etc wiped clean off and the Cycle was burned about the bow and ride YU the tugs in the harbor that had strain up hurried to the scene when the lire started and by hero!* efforts succeeded in pulling the steamers into the ri\» r out of reach ol the flames.
In addition to the railroad property the lire destroyed the Crescent lee company plant, many small stores and , a large number of small residences, and many pathetic scenes were wit nessed as the occupants of them struggled to save their sinai! belongings at the risk of their lives The fire will temporarily throw out of employment a large number of employes. but this loss will be compensated by the very much larger number which will be employed in the course of a few nays in clearing away the debris and re-eonstmcting the terminals at the highest attainable speed..
Aside from the tremendous loss in volved in the destruction of property, the fin* is a calamity to New Orleans In the temporary abatement of th** immense export business of the illinois Central, particularly in tin* matter of grain shipment*.
The Stuyvesant docks, completed Iii 1897. cost $500,000. These* docks wren' worlh millions to th** city of New Or* Inns as they brought to its commerce and trade which never had gone there previoulsy because of a lack of proper facilities _
