Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Lake City, Mich., May 21. The loss of
life in the tire which destroyed Louis
Sand's lumber camp, eight miles northeast
of here, yesterday afternoon, is greater
than supposed. Out of a crew of sixty
men. forty-nine escaped. Ten bodies have
been recovered, and the whole crew is now
accounted for. The dead axe:

fire, and by somo chance escaped, lis is
severely burned but will live.
Edward Koorbacher started east and got
about twenty-five rods away before
caught. Mnlholland started west and sot
about the same distance. The remain
ing eight stayed too long and took refuge
in a well about twenty feet deep. The top
curb of the well burned and the timbers
fell on the men huddled m tho hole, liter
ally cooking their heads, the remainder of
their bodies being nnder water. A res
cuing party tried to get the bodies out of
the well last night, but it was caving so
that the efl'ort was postponed nntil this
morning, when tho recovery was effected.
A large of force of men is still scouring
the adjourning country to make certain no
other unfortunate has been overlooked.
The camp employed sixty men and forty
nlno were in the green timber, permitting
their escaped. The property loss is not
very great. Forty bogs, three horses, tho
camp buildings, tools, etc., tells Mr. Sand'a
loss. The Thayer Lumber Company, operat
ing near by, lost eleven cars loaded with
logs in the same fire. The engine had to
lte its trafa to make its escape. ,
" Another story says the men burned to
death were assembled at dinner, and the
forest fire, which was bnrining all around'
entirely cut oil all escape. When they
realized their danger, and rushed out of
the building in which they had been sit
ting, the smoke so blinded them that they
became bewildered. They ran hither and
thither, unable to find a means of escape.
Their horses stampeded and added to the
confusion. Eight jumped in the well to es
cape the ilames, and were suffocated and
burned to death. Their bodies were
brought to - the snrfaco to-day. Others
of the men rushed to the . oods. and some
of them thus escaped, but tho bodies of two
were afterwards found bnrned to a crisp.
One man reaohed Lake City terribly
burned and died in fearfnl agony. This
weuld make eleven deaths. Eight teams
of horses were cremated. The bodies of the

EULALIA'S FlKfcT. STJXDAI BE RE.
Attended Mass and Spent the Day with Of
ficials, Getting Caaght in a Rainstorm.
Washington, May 2L The Infanta Eu
lalia spent her first Snnday in the United
States in the retirement ot her hotel, ex
cepting a brief walk, attendance at church
and a ride in the afternoon. She arose
early, and at 8: CO o'clock, accompanied by
her husband. Prince Antoine, and a lady in
waiting, she issued forth from the old
Sumner mansion, now a part of the
Hotel Arlington, and crossed the street
to Lafayette Park, taking a short stroll
about the walks, admiring the trees and
shrnbbery. The party was particularly
interested in the mansion of the late Gen.
Beale, one of the historio houses on the
square, and scrutinized it closely. They
were joined by Commander Davis, who
had previously called at the Infanta's
apartments. They proceeded to St. Mat
thew's Catholic Church, a block away, and
attended mass. It had been stated that
the Infanta would attend 11 o'clock serv
ices, and in consequence there were only
the uaual number of early church-goer
present. The contrast between this and
the Infanta's last attendance at church
was very marked. A week ago to-day
she worshiped in Havana, and a grand
display was made in honor of the presence
of a royal personage. The Infanta was
then met at the entrance of the church by
the priest, sprinkled with holy water, given
the cross to kiss, a special paw was reserved
and all honors due her rank were shown
her. It seemed that to-day she desired to
observe all simplicity possible. Withont
any prearranged plans sbo entered tho
church quietly, attracted no raoro attention
than the ordinary churchgoer and eat in tho
body of the church amng the other wor
shipers. The service was the usnal early
morning low mass and instructions, con
ducted by Rer. Father Kervick. But few
in the congregation recognized the Infanta
and party, and their exit created but little
excitement.
After services the party, nnder the escort
of Commander Davis, took a carriage and
were driven to the Washington monument,
through the agricultural and Smithsonian
grounds, and returned to the hotel, where
breakfast was served at 12 o'clock. During
the early afternoon hours the Infanta re
ceived oallers, among then Secretary of
State Gresbam, Sir Julian Pauneofote, the
British minister. M. Patenotre, tho French
embassador. Admiral Luce, Mr. 1'ach
Chung Yang, the Korean minister, and
others in official life. At 5 o'clock
Secretary Gresham drove the In
fanta and her husband to the
Soldiers' Home. Returning they were
caught in a heavy shower, but the landau
was closed and they suffered no inconven
ience. To-night the Infanta. Pr'oco An
toine.the DukeDeTammes.the Marchioness
of Arco Hermosa. and Commander Davis
dined with Scnor Muruaga, the Spanish
minister, at the legation.
Mrs. Cleveland and Colonel Wilson have
been very attentive to the royal guest, ana
to-uiabt a basket of white roses was sent
over lrom the White House to tho Infanta's
rooms. To-morrow the princess and party
will devote the day to sight-seeing, and
will visit the government buildings and
other places of interest under the guidance
of Commander Davis. -

editor of the Gospel Messenger, deliver his
leetare on "Egypt and the East." It waf
looked on as a great feature
and the tabernacle for the first
time was filled and great crowds were
standing about the auditorium. Mr. Miller
recently returned from his third visit to
Gtmoa, Home, Jerusalem and other places,
where he went in search of proof for the
old history as given in the Bible, lit
made many points, proving that
the Bible ia right, and instructed
his brethren to take it as their
guide. Mr. Miller is recognized as the he
man encyclopedia of the church, and is
thought to be the superior of Talmage on
scriptnral knowledge .and history of the
old world. The lecture was a very rare
treat.

Kansas, addressed the meeting to-night,
and it is estimated that fully five thousand
persons heard him. The following visiting

SENSATION IN THE CHURCH.
Startling Statement by the Preacher Where
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland Were at Worship.
Washington, May 21. The absorbing
topio in chnrch circles to-night is a sensa
tional incident which occurred this morn
ing in the First Presbyterian Church, tho
pastor of which is the He v. Dr. S nnder
land. The chnrch was crowded, in the
congregation being many commissioners to
the General Assembly. The President
and Mrs. Cleveland, accompanied by the
Rev. Dr. W. Merle Smith, pastor of
the chnrch attended by Mrs. Cleveland
in New York, who is a guest at theWhito
House, and the Rev. J. Thurber, a brother
of private secretary to the President, were
present. Dr. Smith had been invited to
preach the sermon, and took for his text.
"Bear ye one another's burdens." He spoke
at length on the evangelization of the
masses, stating that one-half of our popu
lation was out of the church. 75 per cent, of
our young men and two-thirds of the
laboring classes not being within its influ
ence. The average Presbyterian chnrch of
115 members, he said, was bringing in only
eight additional members a year. The
young preacher charmed his hearers by his
eloquent plea for nnion in the church.
At the conclusion of Dr. Smith's address
Dr. Snnderland ald: "1 am sura we have
all enjoyed Dr. Smith's sermon this morn
ing, but there is one important omission.
He neglected to state the cause of the dis
sension and distraction in the Presbyterian
Church at this time; the reason why tho
church has failed to accomplish what it
ought to. I want here and now to state
the cause. That cause is Dr. Briggs. I
would not be In that man's shoes to-day fi
all the world. Let ns sing hymn No. 53-J."
His remarks were delivered in a deliber
ate and emphatic manner, and in a low
voice. The white-haired ministers in at
tendance were eaer to catch every word.
Many of those present went forward and
congratulated Dr. Smith on his eloquent
etiort. but the latter, who keenly felt tho
rebuke of the aged pastor, cocld say noth
ing. This evening tho pulpit was occupied
by Rev. Mr. Thurber, of the American
Chapel, Paris.
THE GENERAL ASSEMIJLY.
This Week Will He Memorable on Acconnt
of th Hrtggs Case.
Washington, May 21. Commissioners to
the General Atsembly of Presbyterians,
according to the usual practice in connec
tion with the annual meeting of that body,
ocenpied most of the iocal pulpits to-day.
The weather in the morning was almoit
perfect, a trifle too warm, perhaps, lor this
time of jrear. and the attendance on the
various places of worship was generally
greater than the capacities of the houses
could accommodate. Especially was this
tho case at the churches where the popular
and. best-known of the visiting divines
conducted the services. Rev. Willis G.
Craig, D. P., the modsrator, preached at
