patch to President Rleeco at Santiago:

papers will reappear tomorrow. There were
some slight earthquake shocks at 8:16 p. m.
yesterday, but no further damage was done.
Estimate of Loss.
SANTIAGO, Chile, Aug. 28. A conserva
tive estimate places the property loss at
Valparaiso as a result of the earthquakes
and fires at $200,000,000. The loss In the
rural districts will be Immense, as not only
the residences of the landed proprietors,
but the huts of the laborers have been
completely destroyed, and In many places
the bridges, fences and telegraph and tele
phone posts have been thrown down. No
passenger trains have arrived here from
Valparaiso since August 11 It Is said here
the extent of the disaster In the number
of deaths and the amount of property de
stroyed Is probably greater than was the
eae In Sen Francisco. .Valparaiso Is the
great seaport of the republlo and Its com
merce exceeds that of any Paclfle port ex
cept San Francisco. The entire lower part
of the city Is completely destroyed and the
loss of life Is felt throughout Chile, as all
parts of the, country were represented
there. Heavy rains are still falling at Val
paraiso, making the misery still greater.
Donations for the relief of the sufferers are
arriving here from all parts of thhe world.
Borne Idea of the state ef affairs existing
ean be formed from the fact that a man
rode on horseback from Valparaiso to Ben.
tlago, a distance of eighty miles, and oould
not obtain food or weter for himself or his
horse during the entire distance, owing to
President Appeals for Aid.
OYSTER BAT, N. T.. Aug. 25-President
Roosevelt today Issued a proclamation ap
pealing for aid for stricken Chile. The
message was Issued after a consultation
with Acting Secretary of State Bacon at
Sagamore Hill today. The proclamation
A dreadful calamity has befallen ottr sis
ter republic of Chile In the destruction by
earthquake of Valparaiso and other locali
ties. We of this nation at this moment see
the city of San Francisco struggling up
ward from the ruins In which a like catas.
trophe overwhelmed It last spring. We
keep keenly In mind the thankful apprecia
tion we then felt for the way In which the
people of Europe, Asia and both Americas
came forward with generous offers of as
sistance. In thla time ef woe of our sis
ter republlo I ask that our people now
strive to do to otheri as others last spring
did to us. The National Red Crosa associa
tion haa already taken measures to collect
any subscriptions that may be offered for
this purpose and I trust there will be a
generous response. (3'rned

Do you know that the wholesale shoe
sales of St, Louis reached the enormous
total of 3JM79,83.13 In the year closed June
80, 1906? This fact Is shown In a statistical
table prepared by License Commissioner
Clifford from the sworn reports made to
him by the wholesale shoe houses of St.
Louis. These reports form the basis for
the assessment of the special taxes on
merchants in this line of business.
This same table shows that the wholesale
shoe business of St. Louis has Increased
during the past five years 318,773,173. . Much
of this total la sales of stock manufac
tured In this' city or In factories adjaoent
to the city which are owned by BL Louis
The assessment year runs from June to
June, and therefore 1908 may be taken to
have officially closed. The compilation of
the data supplied under eath by the great
Arms wbo are spreading the fame of this
city far and wide Is now complete and is
comparatively shown In the above table,
' During the five-year period several
houses have passed out of existence front
various reasons, but none because thla ia
not an advantageous territory In which to
sell goods. Thla is affirmatively shown In
the table, for while some houses have In
creased their volume of sales more rapidly
than others, all save one hare Increased
enormously and continuously.
The Increase In five years approximates
100 per cent for all the houses combined.
AH houses have not increased at the same
ratio, but the large majority have shown
a satisfying amount of growth.
Most remarkable Is the advance of the
Roberts, .Johnson aV Rand Company from
third to second place, with an increase of

85,0lfi,87. In June, 1903, It waa assessed on
sales aggregating 33,001, 419, and In June, 1908,
It Is aseesed on sales aggregating 8&,027,itt.
This is the greatest Increase made by any
shoe house In St Louis.
Xhe Roberts, Johnson A Rand advance
waa made In spite of the , fact that the
Brown company, which held the second
position five years ago, tn the year ending
June 30, 1908, nearly doubled the sales of
the year ending June 80, 1903.
The Increases from year to year do hot
vary so much as one unfamiliar with these
official figures would suppose. The period
for June 80, 1902, to June, 1908, covers some
of the worst daya of our latest financial
depression, yet the Hamilton-Brown com
pany Increased 8600,000 . In Ha Bales, the
Roberts, Johnson at Rand Increased
000, the Brown company Increased 8618,
the Peters company Increased 8680,000,
the total Increase wae 84,173,811
In the following year, while the Roberts,
Johnson a Rand company Increased 81.890,.
800, the Brown company Increased 8803,473
and the Petera 3940,000. and the total In
crease was nearly 86,500,000.
The year 1806 finds these houses still
growing. The total advance for the year
Is nearly $8,009,000, which la not so great a
rate as In previous years. But 1908 shows
big advances, which make up for the fall
Ing off of the previous period. Hamilton
Brown advanced 8600,000, Roberts, John
son A Rand, $1,800,666; Brown company,
8006,180: the Petera company, 8900,000, and
the entire list 34,346,400.
The glory of It all Is that these great
houses are still growing and making St.
Louis permanently the premier shoe mar
ket of America.
