Milwaukee june 28.�?a fire almost swept the town of Marshfield out of existence yesterday afternoon and 2,000 people Are homeless. The loss is not less than $1,000,000. All communication by wire is Cut Oft and it is almost impossible to learn particulars. Locomotive Sparks started the Blaze at noon in the lumber Yard of the Upham furniture factory and it rapidly developed into a roaring tire that spread toward the town. Insufficient fire Protection prevented any resistance to the flames which soon spread to the flooring factories. The business blocks along main Street and the adjoining residences were next wrapped in flames. The people who gathered furnished such help a they could hut could not control the flames. The heat was so intense. Two thousand ave Hundred feet of the track of the Wisconsin Central Railroad which runs through one end of town were Bent and twisted into the most grotesque shapes. Special trains from Stevens Point and Chippewa Falls conveyed five engines to the place but the lire was beyond control. But one store and a few half burned houses remain of a flourishing town. Many people were transferred by specials to neighbouring towns and others camped on the outskirts of the town. Among the buildings destroyed were a wooden Ware factory a grist Mill a saw Mill and the factory of the Upham manufacturing company Tremont and several minor hotels and warehouses along the Wisconsin Central its depots four churches and the entire business Centre. Insurance is less than one Tiftz the loss. Who to going around the City and deftly defrauding our citizens. Yesterday a Little after noon two men were seen walking towards or. Dowlings residence. One remained outside and the other went in and seeing mrs. Dowling begged assistance saying he was in distress. Or. Dowling happened to the Home anti on interrogating him got no satisfaction so lie answered him that a big Strong Man like him should work Rattler than beg. The same Man called later on at Dowling a floods drug store and seeing or. Shropshire begged assistance saying he was a druggist in distress. Or. Shropshire asked for his name and credentials but the Man would give neither the one nor the other. Then he turned to the drug store attendant and. Producing a big Roll of greenbacks he called for two bits Worth of soap which he obtained. Then he went off and was next heard of Andrei ssh drug store where he tackled or. Hertzberg and representing himself As a doctor he commenced telling a Long Story of his distress. Or. Hertzberg Cut his Story Short by giving him a Dollar and excusing himself on tile ground that he was Busy. How Many More places the Man visited is unknown but one thing is quite Clear the Man is an imposter and the Publio should be warned against Bis machinations. To be removed. It is Learned that the general offices of the Binger sewing machine company which for several years past have been located in ban Antonio will be removed in july next to new Orleans arid consolidated with the general offices there to form the main Southern distributing and Supply depot of this company. The san Antonio general of lines give employment to some 25 clerks and have disbursed considerable Money in this City that will be transferred hereafter to new Orleans. Another attempt. A Young woman living on the Alamo Street route toward Mission Garden attempted to destroy herself by the laudanum route last night because she was despondent on account of the fear that her sweetheart a barkeeper in a big Saloon had transferred his affections to another girl. He visited her last night and assured her that his affections were unchanged and so they broke the laudanum bottle and mutually pledged their vows Over again. Recorders court. A. E.

Clean out the san Pedro death in the pot give us a morgue. Ban Antonio june 28. Daily i out. Among other valuable suggestions of Tho City physician or. Braun Nagle Calls attention in hts annual sanitary report to the deplorable and dangerous condition of san Pedro Creek and it is Only to be regretted that the nuisance is not remedied. This Creek does not contain enough water and Stream Power to flush All the accumulations from sewers of All sorts to their final destination a a great hindrance being the Many obstructions caused by accumulated tilth Rock Etc. The stench caused thereby is simply a immense a especially at night and it is a wonder How the inhabitants near that Creek can Bear it. The hot season is nearly in its full blast now Aud will undoubtedly create More sickness rom this source alone. Remnants of decayed matter easily find Access to the human system by the use of that water and it is a fact that it is used either tor bathing or household purposes. Mexican senoritas Wash their Corn for tortillas Etc., in it and the property owners near this Creek inhale the evaporated obnoxious gases by Day and night. Now in order to remedy this condition of the san Pedro Creek the most efficient remedy would he to Wall both sides of the Creek As now suggested by the health officer and cleaning and excavating the Creek from All accumulated filth rocks Etc., a suggestion by the Way made Many years ago by Tho former City physician. By these Means the sewerage from different sources could to allowed running in that Creek with a great Deal less if not entire harm a provided proper control be made not to use that water in any instance for drinking purposes. If such water is rolled it is rendered less a oculus hut it is by far safer to use hydrant and Cistern water. And now one More important and often discussed Point in regard to a morgue in our City. The finding of copses related to in the papers of late and their exhibition in a Small Justice of the peace a a office for Public inspection is of anything ridiculous and against modern Civi lation. We have two hospitals where ample provisions exist for such purposes and of they Are inadequate then a More suitable institution should be built in the City to exhibit dead bodies for identification and where at the same time the necessary autopsy can be performed without exposure to the Public. .
