The Fire Spreads All Along the Harbor Until It the liny for Nearly a Magnificent Hut Costly DU Utilized to Iight the Destroyer and Pilen of IiUiraber Thrown Into the Worth OOO In One Life lost EAST TAWAS Mich July afternoon the barge Sea Gulli drifted lazily longside Slbley Beariogers lumber docks and lay rocking in a stiff south eastern breeze She was Ico laden and rubbed up against tho all after noon she would glide out Into the bay a short but the wind soon took her back mad then she wonld hug the docks all the closer Early Saturday morning she caugiit firo Great piles of lumber were stretched along the bay extending far up and the lock Sparks wero carried on the south eastern breeze from the red and restless Gull to the high staclts of lumber Fanned into an angry flame they soon burst forth into a conflagration that light ed up the entire bay Lumbermen tp the The shrill mill whistles aroused many sleeping lumbermen They ran down to the dock cut the Sea Gull Iciose and sent her adrift before trying to check the fire Slowly she drifted down the bay and when opposite the docks owned by Emery Brothers and Bearinger she wus driven tshore again and the breezd carried great torches of flame to the lumber piles The Gfull could not be driven from the harbor She hovered close to the shore throwing big brands of fire Into the lum ber stacked high above her and finally rolled up alongside William Lockes dock There she lay in the glare of a thousand burning lumber stacks shooting out brands like skyrockets though contrib uting but mengerly to the brilliant con flagration she had caused A Costly Illlumimtloii The bay wna now framed with n sheet of fire for almost a mile Ths flames shot high into the air and reached far out over the water licking the waves and cracking as they shot upward Men and women rushed to the scene and then ran hur riedly away to protect thdr threatened homes The flames followed the long course of lumber piles consuming them as they went The roar of the conflagra tion drowned the voices of those who gave orders to the sturdy mlllmen Fire tugs from Au Sablis were called but a fleet of them could not nave checked the firo Across the bar at Tawas City the roar of the burning lumber was plainly heard and hundreds ran to the shore to witness the brilliant spectacle The bay was lighted for miles and the flatnes seemed to rise In an unbroken wall from the waters edge to tho frowning heavens A of Awful Grandeur The scene was magniflcentin its gravity No fireworks of human design could equal the display produced by the roaring mass o lumber A3 the flames lisaped out over the water and danced lightly from pile to pile a shudder passed through the eager crowd at Traverse City Behind that wall of fire was a little colony of lumbermen whose homes and lives perhaps were at the mercy ol those angry flames Tha spectacle that had excited only admira tlon before excited awe now The little group withdrew its gaze for nn instant and turned to contemplate the fate of those whose weary hands had reared the ill fated rows of lumber Tlie Millmotts Homes Snvoil Echoes of a Iremendous explosion rolled across the bay find looking again the eager crowd saw vast piles of lumber rise In the air scatter in the winids and plunge Into the bay The wall of fire was broken the same time Another omnious re port followed and more lumber piles were thrown into the bay The gap between the roaring stacks was widened Once more a great mass of lumber was raised from the ground and scattered upon the dazzling waturs and the homes of the millmen werfi saved Put to Gool Use They hud reported to heroic means and but for the uso of great charges of dyna mite tho big mills and with them their homes would have Ijeen laid waste Cut off from the remaining piles the fire slowly burned itself out consuming the docks to the waters edge Meanwhile the Sea Gull had drifted ashore far below a total wreck She was completely burned and with her perished the cook Mary Clark The loss to lumbermen is Of this sum falls upon Siblsey Bearinger Other losers are the Tona wanda lumber company William Locke Emery Brothers and Isaac Bearinger A Collusion In Hell

Elaine of New York Mrs Burke Roche Mrs S ML and Charles T Howe of Boston wen among the other gnesta pnaant About Certain Insinuations and Crit RHP at tbe Re ciprocity Idea Not Likely to Win In the Hero in tbe French Lega Risks His Lllbl In Stopping a Rnnawar Rascality in San Francisco WASHINGTON GITT July telegram from Cape May Point SI J says Mrs Harrison has been interviewed about the acceptance of cottage and the crit icism growing out of tha gift After de scribing the unsuitableness of tha White House for family life in the summer she said that there had been suggestions made to the president from various sources about purchasing a summer home in the suburbs of Washington City at thi end of his official term might be sold at consid erable advance The president objected to this on the ground that it would bean improper speculation While they were considering invitations from friends who had homes iri healthful local ities near the capital Mrs Harriiiou was surprised by the gift of tbe cottage She continued No Hid for Faror In the Gift Its acceptance setmed to me to be the best which could be hone None of the gentlemen concerned could luive object other thaui thu courtesy of making us comfortable As far an their names are v known none of them seek office It does not in volve the president in any money making for his personal benefit How others may be benefited does not concern us If our presence at Cape May Point will do a benefit to any person they are welcome to t It is a beautiful place retired and pleasant and I think will be a benefit in health to those who are near and dear to us The Baby McKco Critics As to baby McKee Mrs Harrison said We have never wished the publicity given our grandchildren therefore if any one is getting dissatisfied it should 5e remembered that we did not obtrude ihern upon the public When it is said by inconsiderate persons that we force our privacy upon the public it can be truth fully sixidwithout desiring to be olfensive that the public have forced themselves upon us Xlie License of the Price It seems to me that American journal ism takes entirely too wide a range of freedom with the private matters of fami lies It is a wonder that the proprietors or editors do not put a check upon this lass of journalism It certainly does not strengthen the influence of the papers in places where they would otherwise be felt and respected I am sorry for persons who take pleasure in making me unhappy Mrs Harrison is delighted with the cot tage She will remain here during the summer but the whole family will pass a short time in tbe mountains at Cresson in September STATUS OF THE RECIPROCITY IDEA IBlaine Nat the Original Show for tliie Proposition WASHISOTON CITY July now ap pears that not only did the members of the senate finance committee have the reci procity question under discussion before Elaines letter was sent to senate but they laid the matter informally before the president for his sanction They then learned that it was the intention of the president to send to congress a hitter on the subject written by Blaine and not wishing to anticipate thin action they did nothing further in the matter They can hardly be said to favor the Blaiae proposi tion for the proposition that was laid be fore the president by them differed ma terially from that of the secretary of state loo Much Politics in Wool A member of the finance committee who has been quoted as favoring Blaines reciprocity scheme said to a reporter of the United Press a few days ago We cannot agree to a reciprocity on sugar which would affect only onesixth of the amount which we consume That would be simply to increase the profits of the producers of that sugar which is admitted free with no reduction of cost to the con sumer The same Republican senator said that the senate would not accept any reciprocity proposition which involved the admission of wool free of duty sug gesting that there was too much politics in wool MORE CENSUS RASCALITY A Charge That tlio Returns From San Francisco Are WASHINGTON CITY July tion has been received at the census office from a citizen of San Frandscathat the returns of the enumerators in that city were all padded This charge following closely upon the dispatch of Supervisor Davis that one enumerator had been de tected increasing falsely his returns and that he had been arrested seemed to re quire immediate action A telegram was at once sent to Mr Davis calling his at tention to the charges which emanated from a highly respectable source and ask ing him to make a report No further action will be taken by the census office until Mr Davis makes his report A TRULY NOBLE COUNT Heroic Deed of a Member of the French Legation at tlie Capital WASHINGTON CITT July

Iowa called at census office Satmday and presented the protest of the board of trade and many citizens of Council Bluffs Iowa against accepting the results of the recent census enumera tion of that
