MANILA, April I9.-The town of Hollo
waa totally destroyed by fire this morning
and 20.000 people rendered homeless. The
fiames are still raging, fanned by a heavy
wind. The fire has passed beyond control
of the civil and military authorities. The
damage has not been estimated. Only
meager reports have so far been received
here, as telegraphic communication Is af
fected. Hollo Is the capital of the Island of
Panay, located on the east coast. The port,
which Is the second In Importance In the
Philippines, next to Manila, Is the center
f the sugar Import trade.
Reports have been received from South
Luson of a severe esrtliquake In the town
f Nueva Careres, capital of the province
f Arlboa Camarines, and also at Nayabaa,
In the province of Tayabas, in northern
Luson. The destruction of buildings Is re
ported, but so far there Is no mention of
any toss of life.
It Is feared that communication by wire
ttaa been affected. A trembler was ex
perienced at Manila, with Intermittent

of the shocks were severe, but the majority
f the others were scarcely perceptible.
