Several hundred dollars was raised by the King’s Daughters for the relief of the distresses and suffering from the fire.
Mr. L. Lopez estimated his losses by the fire at about $80,000.
The insurance agencies report their losses by fire as follows: Swan agency between $80,000 and $90,000; Theobald agency, $25,000.
