At >j present this is unconfirmed. Edmonton, October Bulle- tin received a special despatch over the Grand Trunk Pacific to the ef- fect that a fire in the park is re- ported but there is no confirmation of the burning of the fences and the releasing of the buffalo. It is not reasonable to suppose the fence would be destroyed by a-prairie fire unless every post was completely burned. The fence, of course, is of wire. MAJOR W. W.
