The fire hroke out in a stable on Washington street. ,A strong wind carried the flames both sides of the street until more than two blocks of buildings were burned. Tho houses were all frame structures and in a few moments the fire was beyond control. The high wind carried the burning shingles loner dis- tances, and at one time furious llamas were burning in five different places, threatening tho lower part of the town, near the steel works, with destruction. The burgess telegraphed to this city for assistance. Two fire engines were ordered to the scene, but their services were not required. The bouses were nearly all owned and occupied by em- ployes at the Siuel works and the fami- lies of laborers. Very little of their household effects wore saved.

Not a sailing vessel will leave any port on any of the lakes, and just as fast as that are now out make their appearance they will be ad- ded to the list of "tted-up." The pros- pective strike is due to a demand on the part of the Seamen's Union for an in- crease in wages after August 1 to S2 for sailors and Sl.TS for bargemen, and a further demand that every man on ship- board under the rank of captain shall be a member of the union and shall bo shioped from the Soamen's Union head- quarters by vessel owners. The Vessel Owners' Association refused the de- mand. Tho only possibility of its fail- ure to materialize will be a square back- down on the part of one or the other of the interested factions.
