"FRANCISCO--DISASTROUS FIRE at SAN FRANCISCO -- Loss of Life -- On Thursday morning at 3 o'clock a fire broke out in San Francisco, on Commercial street between Kearney and Montgomery streets, said to have had its origin in the Barnum Restaurant. The buildings in the vicinity being mostly of wood, the flames spread rapidly, and destroyed some 7 or 8 houses, including the Diana Saloon, Collins & Tiffany's hat manufacturing establishment, Barnum's Restaurant, and several small buildings adjoining. An Italian, by name of FRANCISCO, was burned to death. He is said to have first discovered the fire and given the alarm, and is supposed to have been endeavoring to save property or extinguish the flames, when he was either suffocated, struck down, or fell and was killed. His body, perfectly charred, with the legs and arms burned off, was discovered among the coals and cinders in the rear portion of Barnum's Restaurant. A German servant girl occupying a room in the 3rd story of Barnum's Restaurant, was observed at her window, and was called to by the crowd to jump into a blanket which was held to receive her. She got out of the window, hung on the sill for a moment with her hands and then fell. In her descent she struck a sign, was thrown against a window, which broke, cutting her severely in the leg, and fell head foremost upon the blanket. A disturbance occurred between the members of 2 engine companies, resulting in a general fight. A young lad by name of HAUGHTON, returning from a ball, was just in time to save from Collins & Co.'s hat store, the wife & 2 children of Mr. COLLINS. Having placed them beyond the reach of danger, he immediately returned, and, knowing where there was a trunk containing valuable, endeavored to obtain it, but was prevented by firemen, who, fearful of his being suffocated, opposed his entrance."

"FRANK--DEATH OF A PROMINENT REDWOOD CITY TANNER--Louis J. FRANK Succumbs to Injuries Resulting From a Fall in Boston--Redwood City, October 25--The Manager of the Frank Tanning Company yesterday received a telegram from Boston announcing the death of Louis J. FRANK, which took place at 1 o'clock. FRANK was the head of the local tannery and went East for men when the local employees went out on strike. He slipped on the street in Boston a few weeks ago, injuring his kneecap. A few days ago blood poisoning set in and this was the immediate cause of his death. FRANK was a native of California and aged 44 years. He was educated as a civil engineer, but only followed that profession a few years and entered the management of the Frank Tanning Company. He is a director and largest stockholder of the corporation. He took an active part in politics and was a Democrat. In 1884, he was elected to the Assembly, although the county went Republican. He was defeated two years ago in a three-cornered fight for Supervisor, the Independent candidate winning by sixty majority, with FRANK a close second. He was past president of the local parlor, Native Sons of the Golden West and took a deep interest in the welfare of the organization. Some thirteen years ago FRANK married Miss HYMAN, daughter of H. HYMAN of San Francisco, then a prominent young lady in Jewish circles. The wedding was a big social event. The body will be brought to California for interment."

"FRANK--"HEAD OF REDWOOD TANNERY IS DEAD"--William FRANK Succumbs to Sickness Induced by Work During the Recent Strike--Redwood City, April 28 -- William FRANK, president of the Frank Tanning Company, died at his residence in Menlo Park early this morning. FRANK was taken down with a severe cold last week and steadily grew worse. Pneumonia finally set in and yesterday he began sinking and died shortly after midnight. During the recent strike at the tannery in this city, FRANK was obliged to do a good deal of extra work, and this, it is said, has caused his death. During the early part of the strike his brother, Louis, went east to secure men and met with an accident which resulted in his death. The men went back to work only a short time ago. Within a period of fifteen months three members of the FRANK family have died. There now survive one brother, Albert, and two sisters, Mrs. A.J. MARCUS and Mrs. I. TAUSSIG.

FRITZ, the mysterous circumstances attending whose death have recently caused much surprise in this community, took place yesterday afternoon from the Armory at the corner of New Montgomery and Minua Streets, where the body has lain in military state since Saturday. The last watch was kept by members of the Gatling Battery, of which the deceased was commander. In the centre of the spacious drill hall, upon a dais, laid the metal casket containg the remains, which was covered with dense masses of immortelles, roses, and other floral offerings---the final tributes of mourning friends and relatives. Some of the designs were appropriate and beautiful. The Americus Club contributed and elegant cross, composed of white pinks, tuberoses and pansies, the whole surmounted by A PURE WHITE DOVE IN FLOWERS. The Elite Club furnished a stand of white flowers, on which was the name of "A.J. FRITZ," the letters of which were in heliotrope and pansies, and ex-State Senator, John BOYSTON, a brother-in-law of the deceased , bestowed a floral pillow of white roses and white pinks, which contained the simple word "Rest," in violets. Bouquets in sufficient quantities to entirely obliterate from view the casket, were also donated by kind friends of the deceased. From nine o'clock until noon a steady stream of visitors filed past the remains, taking a last look at the face many of them knew so well. Long before the hour announced for the services, the streets in the immediate vicinty were thronged with spectators, and th capacity of the hall was inadequate to contain those who came to view the remains. Although it was announced that the procession would move at 2 o'clock p.m., sharp, the pressure of the crowd was so great that it was nearly 3 o'clock before THE ADVANCE COLUMN started. The time for moving of the procession having long since passed, and there being no diminution of the immense throng seeking admission, guards were stationed at the door and none were allowed to enter. The following were the pall-bearers: Major John MASON, Captain George BIGLEY, Captain Frank O'GRADY, Captain M. GREANY, Captain H.P. BUSH, Captain H.S. TEMPLETON, Captain Henry LEVY and Captain H.P. FILGATE for the military, Peter QUINN, M.C. CONROY, and James GANNON, from the Bohemian Council of the Chosen Friends, and Joseph JOURDAN, J.R. BRODIE, J.H. COLBERT and John J. DUN of the Americus Club, who at 3:30 assumed their duties, and the procession started in the following order: Union Gatling Band, thirty-seven pieces and drum corps; the San Francisco Jussars, Company B, First Battalion Cavalry, Captain C.C. KEENE: Company H, Second Regiment Infantry, Lieutenant William D. WATERS; the Oakland Guard, Captain Henry LEVY; Company H, first Regiment Infantry, Captain H.P. BUSH. The the hearse bearing the remains, the casket being enwrapped in the Stars and Stripes, and THE RIDERLESS HORSE, With empty saddle and boots reversed, following. Next came the commissioned officers for the National Guard of California, headed by Adjutant-General S.W. BACKUS, General John McCOMB, and Colonels WASON and SMEDBERG, the delegation Bohemian Council, Order of Chosen Friends, the Americus and Elite Clubs, and a long line of carriages containing friends of the deceased. It is estimated that nearly 2,000 persons were in the procession, and, with but one exception, on the occasion of the assassination of President Lincoln, it was the largest funeral cortege ever had in San Francisco. The line of march was from New Montgomery to Market, to Golden Gate Avenue, and thence direct to Calvary Cemetery. The streets along the line fo march were crowded with spectators, and many who came simply to look on, joined the crowd and walked to the cemetery. A large crowd had gathered at the last resting place for the dead, and after the casket had been PLACED IN THE RECEIVING VAULT, the scene was of the most heartrending description. Owing to the immense crowd that blocked around the Armory many of the intimate friends had been unable to view the remains, and at the vault the lid was unscrewed and taken off to allow them to do so. The Venerable Mother of the deceased clasped her boy around the neck and pressed kiss after kiss upon his brow, and it was necessary to remove her by force. The widow was overwhelmed with grief, and with shrieks declared that she should be the last to kiss her boy. The Union Gatling Battery, commanded by Lieutenant J.G. NOONAN, formerly commanded by the deceased, acted as an escort of honor to the remains, and fired three volleys in front of the receiving vault. During the day the flags over the Americus and Elite Club rooms wee at half mast, and the fact that it was the largest military and civic funeral procession that ever marched through the city, showed the popular estimation in the deceased was held."
