BIG FIRE AT PHILADELPHIA.
Flames Lick Up Property of the Tain,
Philadelphia, Sept. 29 Fire broke out
yesterday afternoon in the building at 136
North Delaware avenue, used by Phillips
& Cunniugbam as a warehouse for lard
and oil, and which was full of those sub
stances, ; Before an hour bad elapsed the
fire had gained such headway that a gen
eral alarm was Bent in, including a call
for two fire boats. The flumes spread to
131, 132, 134, 130, and 138 North Water
street and also to the Armour packing
house, the rag warehouse of Jessup,
Moore & Co. and 149 Front street, the
wool warehouse of Thomas Wilson. All
of these places were gutted or badly dam

Several Firemen Injured.
The inflammable nature of the goods
stored in the buildings rendered the work
of the firemen extra hazardous, and by
the falling of the walls, caused by oil ex
plosions and in other ways, eight firemen
were hurt, but none seriously. A rough
estimate of the loss places it at (500,000,
with insurance for a little over half.
During the fire Delaware avenue was a
river of oil and water, the oil aflame and
rendering the street utterly impassable.
The telegraph and telephone wires were
down in every direction, creating a bar
rier that very much embarrassed the fire
men. The fire burned for about two
hours and by 4 o'clock p. m. was practi
cally under coutrol.

St. Paul. Miun., Sept. 29. A Pioneer
Press special from Grand Uapids, Minn.,
says: It is learned that a most destructive
storm has passed over the southern part
of this and Beltram counties, felling im
mense amounts of pine timber and causing
some loss of life. Particulars are impossbie
to get, owing to the remoteness of the
section, which is uuseltled and unoccu
pied except to claim holders and cruisers
for timber and mineral lands. Whole
townships are known to have been swept
over, the timber being leveled as grain
before the reaper. One cruiser has reached
here, and reports an almost marvelous es
cape. Surveviui; Parties in FeriL
lie sas the chief of a surveying party
in the wocds was struck by a tree, and
while being taken out via the Canadian
country died on a boat in the Lake of the
Woods. His name is unknown. Several Un
ited States surveying parties were at work
in the region devastated. The center of des
truction was thirty to forty miles this side
of the boundary line and immediately
north of this place. If half that is re
ported is true there has been a damage to
pine timber amounting to many thou
sands of dollars, and if it is not immedi
ately cut the loss will reach hundreds of
