The sufferers from the Cooper street fire have nearly all been provided with shelter. There has been a generous outburst on the part of the neighbors and contributions of food, money and clothing have been received to supply the immediate wants of the sufferers. A volunteer committee, consisting of J.N. Specht of 27 Pelling street. John W. Hammill of 413 Central avenue, W.H. Ball of 413 Central Avenue, J.W.B. Rose of 236 Cooper street, Emma Lang of 96A Cooper street, Marion Reeve of 33 Moffatt street and others has taken charge of the distribution and the sufferers have been asked to apply for relief at a barn in the neighborhood which has been extemporized into a relief depot.

 Last night each head of the homeless families received $7.50 from the fund collected and rations and clothing. Contributions are still solicited. The business men in the neighborhood have sent groceries, shoes, hats and clothes and efforts are in progress to provide the sufferers with houses and start them in life anew. The Queens county police this morning arrested two of the rioters and expect to have the ring-leader in custody before the day is out. The accused will be arraigned before a justice of the peace in Jamaica.
