Paterson N. J. Feb. 10. The
tteice conflagration which burned Its
way through the business center of
Paterson yesterday has completely
spent its force and is quickly dying
out in the asheB and broken brick o
The firemen who hurried from '
ether cities to save the endangered '
city have gono back to tholr homos '
onri nnr-nml pnmnnnlott of the local
department have been ordered to
their houses for rost and refresh
ments. Conservative opinion Is In-
clined to cut two million from the
aggregate loss of tho ton million
agreed upon yesterday and olght
millions will probably be accoptod as
tho actual cost of tho flro.
No tabulation of Individual lossos
as can be accepted as reliable has
et been made and it will be several
days before satisfactory figures can
be prepared. Equally Incomplete Is
the. estimate of Insurance.
It is stated today the amount of
insurance was between four and five
Pillion but what cave basis to Uie
aleulatlon was not clear
Casualties Were Few.
f bably no fire of equal magnitude
uid widespread destrucdiveness evor
produced n equally small casualty.
Dozens of firemen and volunteers who
Ubored with them were tfllghtly in-
ured by falling bricks and Umbers
nurned by flying firebrands of torn-
poiarily were overcame by smoke
hut only few of them needed either
Mirgical or medical attendance. The
.mall casualty list is explained by the
iiut that tho people had ample wani-
ng and time to abandon their homes
. fore the flames came upon them.
