Detroit, Mich.. May It A Are is rag
tag in the upper central counties of tbe
lower peninsula, the like of which has
never been known. The line of tho
Cames reaches almost without a break
from Maon eonntv, on Lake Michigan,
to Io$co county, on Lake Huron, with the
forests of Lake, Osceola, Clare, Gladwin,
Ogemaw and Alcona, where Gen. Alger
owns large interests, all ablaze. Another
fire of scarcely less magnitude exists in
the upper peninsula. The iucline of the
Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic rail
road, through Marquette, Houghton, B.i
raga anil Ontanngon counties it in the
path of the fl uiifs. Two railroad bridges
have already gone on tbat liue, and the
telegraph lines are in bad shape.
The l ire Threatening the Town.
Fears are entertained that the fire will
reach tl.e icwn of Meredith iu Clay
county. Tait township, in Iosco county,
is aUo in danger. Saturday night the
flames swept into Oscoda and burned out
1300,000 worth of property. Twn bonses
and 7,000, (WO feet of lumber were barned.
Great apprehension is felt Au Sable. An
appeal for help has been sent to Alpena.
It li feared the city will be swept away if
the wind shuts. Millions of acres of pine
re burning. Additional reports now
coming in show that a widespread dis
trict is devastated.
Lake Superior It lack with Smoke.
A telegram fmni Marquette say-,: For
est Eres are burning ail over the copper
country. At the Osceola stamp mill sev
eral cords of wood and the railway trestle
were LurneiL At C'bassell several farm
houses aud tarns went up in smoke, and
a bridge was consumed. Lake Superior
from Marquette to Keweenaw point is
fairly blacK with smoke, aud the fog
whistles are kept blowing constantly. The
loss will be very heavy.
Isbpeming is surrounded by fire, but
there is no danger to the town. There is
mile after mile of fire along
the roadbed of the Chicago and
Northwestern railroad south of
Ishpeiuing and nearly to Escanaba. Tel
egraph poles and railroad ties are bein?
destroyed, and communication is likely to
be cut off at any time. Nothing but a
drenching rain of two (lays' duration can
prevent tremendous damage.
IVaterville nearly Destroyed.
Dispatches from Ludington state tha t
Walkerville, a small town in Ocean coun
ty, the terminus of liutkr & Peters' log
ging camp, was almost totally destroyed
by fire Saturday. The hotel, stores, liv
'ery barn, saloons, blacksmith shops, and
all but two dwellings weut np in smoke.
Five bundrei thousand hardwood logs
also burned. Fires are raging in the
woods over the conntry, and doing incal
culable damage. Kit Z. timer's mill at Free
soil burned Saturday.
I ires In Lvery Direction.
Another report says that Altooua, ten
miles from Morley, was rapidly burning
Saturday. Traverse City reports tbat
forest lires are raging in every direc'iou
around that city, standing pine, corj
wood, and much valuable hardwood lum
ber have been destroyed. Many farm
houses and barns in the surrounding
country are threatened with destruction,
and in several directions in the suburbs
of the town forces of men are figiitrug
fires to keep them from the village. Uu
less the present high wind goes down it is
feared much damage will result. The
air is so thick with smoke, nsbes, and
cinders of burned leaves that it isdijicult
The Havoc I'mler-Krttimated.
Latek. Ejcu additional report from
the region of the forest fires snows that
the damage, intte.td of being exaggerated,
has leen under-estimated. Morhy, M
COsta county, telegraphed yesterd.iy that
Altona, a small village ten miles from
tnere, was in ashes. U:g Uapid, Mecosta
county, reports that bad fires are raging
In several places in the county. A rep rt
from bear Lake, a small settlement in the
northern part of the county, states that
several hou-es were set on tire hy sparks
blowhig m from the forest, fully halt a
mile away, an I the people were driv-.-u
into the lake for shelter.
Two Settlements Wiped Oat.
Harrison, the capital of Clare county,
has had twenty-four hours of imminent
danger, and summoned help from dire,
and other village. C'liuton, a small station
on the Toledo, Ami Arbor and North
Michigan railroad, was wiped out Satur
day afternoou. Vagu-r & Pierce had 2,00,
000 of feet los aaJ Hyde Bros. 1,0UU,U0J
feet bu rued. Farwell was burned Situr
day with all the houses in the settle
ment. ALSO RAGING IN THE EAST.
IV, state that the most disastrous forest
fires known for fifty years are raging
within a short distance of Austin, in tbe
immense timber tract of F. C and M. W.
Goodyear, of this city. The fire was dis
covered yesterday morning. Thirty mill
Ion feet of lumber and thirty cords 01
bark were bnrned within-tea miles of the
railroad t.-ack. Telegraph and telephone
service is badly crippled, and it will b
impossible to get details for a time.
Four Gas Wells Aflame.
Oil Citt, Pa., May 1L Four gas wells,
eight oil wells, several tanks and about
five square miles of forest had np to last
evening been bnrned by forest fires, which
started Saturday morning between Coal
Hill and President, and broke out afresh
yesterday, covering three square miles
during tbe afternoon. Gangs of men
from the surrounding counties have been
sent to fight the fire. No estimate of the
loss has yet even been approximated.
THE DEADLY GASOLINE AGAIN.
Sixteen Firemen Barned, Three Froba
bly Fatally, at Chicago.
CniCAGO, May 1L During a fire in the
lace and glove cleaning establishment of
Heinle & Mueller, on North Clark street,
Saturday, and after the flames had ap
parently been subdued, a five-gallon can
of gasoline suddenly exploded by the
fumes coming in contact with some fire
in a stove and probably fatally injured
the following men: Capt. Louis O'Neill,
Truckman Mike Stafford and Patrolman
Frank Lee. Besides the above the fol
lowing were seriously burned: Patrolmen
Konine and Ackerly. Truckmen Mc
Nearny, Calpard. RaOVrty, Kyan and
Peterson, Pipeman Martin Noon, Capts.
Wemand aud Huran and Lieut. Jaiues
Garuey. First Assistant Fire Marshal
Mushain and Pipemu E Iward Roach
were slightly burned.
Origin of the ltlaze.
The fire started in the basement. An
ton Morris, an employe, was washing
some gloves in a pan of gasoline, when
from some unknown cause it flashed into
flame. He was fortunat.'ly unhurt, and
fled for his life and turned in aa alarm.
The fire was soon extinguished, and tbe
firemen were in the basement, looking
around to see if there were any sparks left,
when one of the men wasordured to break
throngh a partition to investigate. He had
bardly made an opening when the second
flash took place, A five-gallon rau of gas
oline was behind the partition, and the
heat bad developed the fumes. As soon
as they got out t bey spread around, and
came in contact witU the lire that caused

Iilessed belief lor Wisconsin.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 1L Reports
from northern Wisconsin are that Fri
day night's heavy rains checked the for
est fires in many localities. The Wiscon
sin Central was stopped in the Gogebec
range by the burning of tbe bridge. The
Ashland Iron aud Steel company lost 50,

Chicago, May 11. The result of last
week's playing in the base ball field was
to put Anson's -colts" at the head of the
list with a lead of CG points. The base
ball men are to be congratulated over tbe
fact that the squabbles of the past year
Lave not disgusted the public, which is
evideut from the large attendance at the
games. No club since the owning of the
season has played to a losing business,
and the interest in tbe game seems on
tbe increase, it anything.

San Francisco, May 1L The cruiser
Charleston went to sea shortly after 3
o'clock Saturday morning. Herdestina
tion was unknown but it is understood that
si e has gone outside the heads to test hei
nw eight-inch rifles. Yesterday more
li(;ht was shed on the Charleston's move
in :nts. It is positively asserted that she
relly departed under peremptory orders
from Washington City to chase the Chil
ian steamer Rata. Just before midnight
on Friday a long cipher dispatch was re
ceived by Capt. Remy from Secretary
Tracy. It took several hours to deciphei
it, and then orders were given to prepare
fot sea, and the cruiser sailed about 6 in
In Trim fur a Long Craise.
Tbere were rumors about the streets
thitshehal gone in chase of the Rata,
br.t nothing definite was known till late
at night. As far as ammunition, coal,
and sea rations are concerned, the Charles
ton is in trim for a long cruise, and the
only drawback to her sudden departure
that her p ople found was in the absence
of fresh provisions and green groceries.
The hope of overtaking the 1 tat a is not
eutrely ahandoued, as tbe Chilian vessel
did not have as much start as was sup
The Itata Only 50O Miles Ahead.
Information from the Mexican and
sou hern California coast shows that she
did not start for home immediately n
lea ing San Diego, but lingered outsMe
unt 1 the Robert and Minnie could get
out and transfer to her the heavy
caro of rifles and cartridges.
The transfer was not completed until
late Friday afternoon, so that the Itata'
lead is cut down to thirty-six hours, or
abot.t 5o0 miles. If the Charleston does
not pick the Itata up, her orders are to
keep oa until Admiral Brown is encoun
tered in Cniliau waters.
Good Match from Uie Charleston.
The Itata will lose a day at S.-ia Lucas,
where she will meet the Chilian insur
gent man-of-war Esmeralda. Shonld this
be tie meeting point a fight is probable.
The rebels are desperate, and unless the
Ksm Talda s crew prove cowards the
Charleston's attempt to seize the Itata
will be followed by warm work. The
Ame-ican vessel has the better of it in
speed, nieu, coal and provisions and navi
gating talent, hut the K-meralda has
guns of greater caliber, and only slightly
less t iodern than the Charleston's.
THE ROBERT AND MINNIE CAPTURED-
Those Chilliaa Inaurgent Arms Not on
li-jard IT. s. S. Omaha Sent to Sea.
Sav Diego, Cal., May 11. The schooner
Rabevt and Minnie, which was hovering
arout d here last week supposed to be
loadel with munitions of war for the
Chilii.n insurgents, was captured Satur
day three miles from San Pedro by Dep
uty Marshal Anderson, hut she had no
arms on board.
Arrest of the Itata's Pilot.
Pilot Dill, who took the Itata out of the
harbo-. has been arrested at San Pedro.
Super airgo Burch, of the Robert and Min
nie, h:is also been taken into custody. He
was ui rted at Los Angeles, and says he
lande-i the arms but declines to say at
what point, it is thought that this was
done a: Cata'.ina or San Clement island.
A Warship Sent to Look Around.
Tut C nited States steamer Omaha left
the h.irbor Saturday. Her commander
received numerous cipher dispatches from
the nary department. It is understood
that tLose cuutaiued instructions to cruise
arouni Coronado islands and San Clem
tut aLd Cud out if possible where the
Robert aud Mlunie met the Rata.
STATAMENTS OF EJRT AND DILL.
The Pilot Says the I ala Was "Armed to
Los Angeles, Cal , May 11. Piiot Dill,
of San Diego, came up irotn San Pedro
last evening with United States Marshal
Gard. Dill says he had no alternative
but to take the Itata to sea. He says the
captain put armed Chilians on either
side of him and remained himself with a
revolver to see that he did not run the
steamer agrodnd. He says be saw fifty to
sixty armed men ou board and there may
have b-en more. Two cannon were on
the forward deck and he was told that
there were six more caauou and two Gat
ling guLs ou board. '.
Wo ild Have Resisted Detention.
Dill s tys he is confident that the vessel
would b ive resisted any attempt to detain
her as a matter of life-or death. He says
the Pat a was s veritable man-of-war
when he took her out of the harbor, but
had the .ippearauce of a merchant vessel
when be brought her in. Capt. O'Far
re!l, of t Je schoouer, refuses to make any
admissions. He says he did not know he
was Violating any law, but refuses to say
what beianiD of his cargo beyond the
fact that he has a clear receipt lor every
What the fropercargo Says.
George A. Burt, agent for the Chilian
insurgents, who had charge of the Ksbert
and Mint ie cargo, and who is now under
arrest here, was also interviewed. He in
sisted tin t he had violated no law, and
seems to be confident that he will be re
leased. He said that tbe government
should lave got after Hartly & Gra
ham, of Illion, N. Y., manufacturing ex
porters cf the arms shipped on the
schoouer, and not after him. There was
nothing mysterious about the schooner
Robert atd Minnie, The arms had been
shipped by rail from the east and loaded
on the veestl at Oakland mole in broad
