SroKANi: FALLS, July this morning a fire broke out on the noith side of the river on Monroe street, destroying property valued at nearly a quartey of a million dollars. 'Hit-re was a woful lack of water, one of the mains bursting island. The Monroe street bridge, a new struc- ture, costing was entirely con- sumed, the department having no water on the North Side. Fire losses: Cable Road Co., 000; H. W. Greenberg Co., Monroe Street Bridge Co., Bonne Co., Cascade Laun- dry, Cutler Curtis, Washington Water Power Co., 000; S. P. Packer, J.

Packer, Total, Karly this morning stories were afloat about the loss of life, but they have not been verified. There is a genpral belief that the fire-bugs are at work. Two small fires this forenoon, cne in the west and the other in the east of the city, strpngthen3 this belief. Five suspects havo been arrested. The city is thoroughly guarded, and no further danger is anticipated. An Outbreak feared. By Associated Press.l NEW YORK, July 23. Inspector Byrnes last night ordered all police reserves in the city held at the station houses. It was prompted by the threats ol tho striking cloakmakers made at various times, particularly at a meeting yesteiday. Reporters were excluded, but one of the Inspector's men present made notes of the fiery speeches and threats of "trouble to- day." The Inspector, when asked to-day why ho issued tho order, said: Because I am not coing to have any trouble in this town, if I can help it. If those men want to make any, we propose to be there from the start and settle it in short order. I think the knowledge that we are ready for them had something to do with the quint of this beautiful day." While the Inspector does not say so, it is evident that he fears an Anarch- ist outbreak similar to that at Chicago. ContrreMMtonal Slattern.

I The Behrlnjr Men Controversy. 1 By Associated Press.] i WASHINGTON, July Presi- I dent to-day sent to the Houpe of Rep- resentatives, in answer to a resolution j introduced by Representative Hitt, the official correspondence between, the Governments of Great Britain ar.d the United States touching the seal fisher- ies of the Behring Sea. In an accompanying letter of trans- mittal to the President, Secretary Blaine, under date of Bar Harbor, July 10th, regrets the delay in the trans- mission, which the President directed on the llth inst., and says the corre- spondence is still'in progress. The correspondence includes thirty separate papers, beginning with a let- ter from Edwardes, First Secretary of and Charge d Affaires, after Minister West's recall, dated August 21, 1889, and closing with one from Sec- retary Blaino to Sir Julian Pauncefote, British Minister, dated July 19, 1890. j The opening letter from ICdwardes says he is instructed by his Govern- ment to cail attention to the fact that BURNED IT A Destructive Forest Fire in California.

Dr. Prce's DoHclou.H Fl   Associated Press WASHINGTON, July the testi- mony given by General Miles in the report of the Senate Committee on Canadian Relations, whiv-h was laid before the Senate yesterday upon the defenseless condition of the United States and especially the northwestern border, he says: "I will state what is well known in regard to Canada. I believe that the railway system of British Columbia could he occupied by the American troops in ten days, or, in other words, that the principal part of British Co- lumbia could be occupied by American troops, not, however, through Victo- ria. There is on the island of Van- couver, occupied by British forces, a place where the British Government has expended millions in building dry docks and navy yards, and has u ade some surveys for her fortifications. They have there, at this tiuriej a fleet of war-ships under the command of a British Admiral. I think it is fair to say, what every intelligent man must know, that during ten days the British fleet could destroy every town and citv on Puget Sound, destroy our rail- road system there and occupy oar out- lets for that Northwestern country. They could also send ships up the Columbia river and destroy the city of Portland and that railway system. There is not a gun or an earthwork on Puget Sound, nor a single artilery soldier. There are a few worthless guns at the mouth of the Columbia, at Fort Cauby, but that is not now occupied by troops. That is the con- dition of affaiis north of the harbor of San Francisco. South of the harbor of San Fran- cisco there is not a gun in position, a round of animation nor a single artil lery soldier to defend the harbors and cities of San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Pedro, tbe terminus of one of the railroads, and from these points a small force could destroy the railroad system of Southern California." The testimony contains an account of the British fortifications at Esqui- malt, where it is reported that Great Britain is now concentrating war ves- sels, with a view to possible contingen- Behring Sea. Cyclone. By Associated Press.] MARSHALL July following are the particulars of yester- day's cyclone: At in the after- noon a black cloud resembling a great serpent reaching down from dense black masses of storm clouds, that formed during the afternoon and mov- ing in a southeasterly direction, de- molished the buildings of three farm- ers living nine miles north west of here. A child of Felix Deareau had a leg broken and another had its bead crushed and died during the night. Mrs. Deareau was seriously bruised. Mrs. Ophdohal and child were blown onto a wire fence and seriously hurt. Two horses were carried from a barn to a pasture near by without injury. Destructive Foreftt 1'lre. Special to the GAZETTE.] SACRAMENTO, July was received from Grass Valley yester- day evening giving a meagre account of a huge forest fire in Nevada county. It is stated that the woods were blaz- ing between tbe town of Forest Springs and Perin's mine, and that the smoke could be seen from Grass Valley. The fire is believed to have spread over ten miles square, sweeping in its pas- sage several farm houses, orchards and any number of acres of oats. Careless hunters are supposed to have started the fire. _______ A Dual Tragedy. By Associated Press.) WHEELING (W.
