A YAST SEA OF ASHES, Where But Yesterday There Stood More Than Forty Blocks of Houses One Hundred Buildings at Bay City, Mich., Were Utterly Ruined. By the Glare of Their Burning Houses One Thousand People Eat a Meal at Mldnilht. BAYr Or, July 26.-The terrible fire which started yesterday afternoon oontin ned to rage all night, and the sun rose this morning on a feld of ashes extending over forty blocks. It is estimated that over one hundred buildings oooupled as factories, stores and dwellings are in mine. The fire burned a awath six blocks wide from the river almost to the eity limits, a distanee of nine blocks, sweeping everything .in its path, and only stopped when there was nothing to feed on, the houses having be come scattering. The less is estimated at $1,000,000. A terrifia wind was blowing from the southwest when the flames started in Miller & Turner's saw mill. Bnrning boards were carried 200 feet in the air, and wherever dropped started a new conflagra tion. The firemen were utterly unable to cope with it and were driven quickly from point to point. The progress of the fire was through a section largely ocoupied by the homes of laboring men. They were compelled to abandon everything, and are now huddled in temporary quarters with out a possession in the world and nothing to eat. The progress of the fire was so swift that even some wagons and drays hauling away household goods were over taken and burned in the street. The firemen finally attempted to make a stand several blocks away, but the cyclone of fre swept down upon them and was soon blazing thirteen blocks from the place of starting. Here the wind began to die down, and the firemen finally began to get the mastery. The fire was not under con trol until midnight. Many houses in the burned ;eection were built upon ground made from the refuse of the mile. and not only were the buildings consumed but the sites also. A number of arrests were made of thieves stealing household goods. This morning there were several reports of loss of life, but the only positively known victim was one unknown woman who wans burned to death. Most of the business places burned had small stocks, ranging from $200 to $16,000. Miller & company lost 3,000,000 feet of lumber, worth $60,000. One great aid to the spread of tie conflagration was the slabs piled on vaeant lots among dwel lings, of which it is estimated that 4,000 eords were destroyed. After the adjournment of the common council last night a number of wealthy cit izens subscribed several hundred dollars for the temporary relie? of families whose homes were destroyed. 'Ihe committee af ter purohasing the stock of several restaur ants, proceeded to the camp of the home less with a couple of dray loads of provi sions. The eatables were apportioned among the sufferers and at midnight, in the glare of the flames, nearly 1,000 people par took of the first food they had tasted since the noonday meal. The bedding saved was arranged on the sod and allotted to the women. Never did a fire do cleaner work than this one. Within the burned locality not a house was left standing, while every shade tree was stripped of foliage and left bare. While the oonflagration was a serious blow to the city and will occasion much suffering, the idea that the city lies in ashes is a mistaken one. The principal business portion lies over two miles from the burned diet:ict and remains intact. It is the poorer class who will suf fer most, and much money, food and cloth ing will be required to provide for their im mediate and futu e wants. The first fatality known of was when the body of Jesse Miller was found in the ruins of his residence. Lying close by the remains were several gold coins. It is sup posed he arrived at home to find it in flames, and rushing inside to rescue the gold was overcome by the heat and smoke. Will He Supplied by the Helena Factory.

HOXI~ITrAD, July 26.-It appears quite likely to-night that Hugh O'Donnell will resign the chairmanship of the advisory committee because of disagreement, the committee refusing to approve of the al most unoonditional surrender of the fight in hand. O'Donnell had expressed him self anxious for settlement, even if Le had to be eaificed. liHe authorized two news paper men to go to Hul erintendent Potter and ascertain upon what terms the old men could return to work. When their commission was executed the cor mittee refused to admit them, and this rebuff will eause O'Donnell's resignation. Superintendent Potter told the mediators there was no vin dictiveness in the company's dealing with the men, but they would not take back certain strife makers. The men would not be questioned about membership in any or ganization, but would be required to sign an agreement as individuals, fixing the scale based on a $23 billet. The mediators weie assured that the places of the old men were being rapidly filled and Sftperintend uet Potter expressed replet when he heard of the failure of O'Donnell's efforts with the committee.

Can Be Made Capasble of Support ing as Many as 20,000,000 Families. Synopsis of the Powerful Speeeh Recently Delivered In the Senate by Mr. Warrem (Wyo.). WAHIHrnOTN. July 26.-It was to awaken the country to the importance of irrigating and reclaiming a traqt of country which represents two-fifths of the area of the United States that Bestor Warren (Wyo.) addressed the senate. senator Warren has long been considered an authority on irri gation. He is chairman of the senate com mittee having this important subject in charge, and his speech will stand for many years an unequaled exposition of this topic, in exhaustiveness and interest. Senator Warren argued in behalf of the value of irrigation as an aid to agriculture and its speeial importance to the United States, and the necessity of giving serious and helpful consideration to the subject of improving arid lands without delay, He said that reclaiming the lands by ceding them to the states under proper restrictions, was safe and equitable, and would bring about recla mation of the largest possible area in the most speedy and economical way. In or der to secure increased irrigation and re clamation, it would be necessary to pre serve the forest areas of the mountains, which not only promote rain but hold back the snow so that the latter is allowed to melt gradually; to construcet immense store age reservoirs and innumerable canals and, in some places, artesian wells. Senator Warren admits that this vast scheme of ir rigation will require an enormous expend iture, but he points out that the river and harbor appropriations of the past ten years have aggregated in round numbers $100, 000,000. not one cent of which has been ex pended for the direct benelit of the arid states. He believes it would not be un reasonable, therefore, to ask an amend- ment to the next river and harbor bill ap propriating $15.000,000 or $20,000,000 per annum for the construction of reservoirs for the detention of waters at the head waters of mountain streams. After an elaborate review of the history of irrigation from the days of the garden of Eden, Senator Warren said that it was estimated by competent authorities that outside of the United States in various countries of the world there were 138,000,000 acres of land under irrigation, supporting 800.000,000 people. He asserted, too, that the 100,000.000 acres of irrigable land in the arid regions of the United ttrrteswould fur nish homes for 20,000,000 families, Nor is the value of this great tgeriTary a matter of the future. Even now the aggregate value of the gold, silver, lead, copper, horses, cattle, sheep and wool moved out of the arid region is not far from $240,000,000, while its imports aggregate $200,000,000. Over one-quarter of the world's supply of gold, lead and copper and 40 per cent of the world's supply of silver are produced within its limits. This is accomplished despite the fact that subsistence for the miners has to be transported great dis tances. The development of this country, if crops could be raised within its borders, would be phenomenal, while the wool crop. already enormous. would be increased to a point which would make the importation of foreign wool almost, if not altogether, unnecessary. It is not to be anticipated, according to Senator Warren, that the raising of crops would be of sufficient extent to interfere with the export market which grain grown elsewherejn the United States now enjoys. Falming by irrigation, he says, would be confined to small holdings, or a limited number of aroes in each ownership. More prosperity would result from raising citrous fruits, raisins, grapes, prunes, English walnuts, and other semi-tropical produc tions. It is also an important fact that almost the entire arid region is adapted to the successful culture of the sugar beet. Experiments, especially in the territory of Utah, have already demonstrated that this region is capable of raising sufficient quan tities of sugar beets to produce sugar enough to make up the deficit between what is now raised and the entire needs of the United States. This would save millions of dollars to this country and give employ ment to the thousands of laborers. 'The necessity for prompt action by the United States, in view of the fact that very little land remains for settlement, except within the arid region, was emphatically argued by Senator Warren, who also discussed with careful detail the legal and national con siderations involved. Ulonr the policy now to be adopted by the roverniment depends the development or retardation of the new states. Under existing laws the state coin trols the w,lters within its boundaries, and the worthless akid land now held by the Federal government should, in Senator Warren's o inlon, be transferred to the state, which would reclaim it and add it to the productive area of the country. The granting of lands to Illinois, Iowa and other western states was stated as showing a precedent, and in each instance has Os suited in material and financial prosperity. Ily the passage of the bill, which formed the text of the speech, homes would be made for thousands of prosperous and thriving people; it would upbuild all inter eats-n-ining, manufacturing, railroads and agriculture-and prevent large hold ings of lands for speculative purposes. Surplus water, now rushing past vast terri tories of drouth-stricken, thirsty land, and inflicting incalculable damage to property, would, by proper storing and diversion, re claim thousands of acres. P'ublio forests would be saved from devastation by fire and the now arid mountain elains and val leys would be made to blossom like the rose. Should lNtudy Coluiitions In Kansas.

POLITICS IN THE SENATE, The Opening Gun of the Campaign Fired by That August Body. Aldrich Defends the Policy That Multiplies Both Millionaires and Tramps . The Tariff, Say He and Vest, Will Be the Issue - 'lle News of the Capital. WAsrnno'ron, July 26.-The opening de. bate in the presidential campaign was heard in the senate to-day, Mr. Aldrich opening it with the declaration that the tariff ques tion was to become, by common consent. the leading issue of the campaign. Vest announced the determination of the demo cratic party to make that the issue in every township in the land. The conference re port on the general deficiency bill was agreed to. The French spoliation claims ate dropped and the Pacific railway claims for government transportation postponed until next session. After routine business the uresiding officer laid before the senate Hale's resolution as to the relative effect of the re publican policy of protection and the dem ocratio policy of tariff for revenue only. Aldrich addressed the senate. He said in vestigations by the flnance committee clearly established the fact that a decline, instead of an advance, had taken place in the price of the necessaries of life and the decreased cost of living since the adoption of the McKinley bill. It is a significant fact that while the cost of living in the United States has declined, the cost of liv ing in England had increased L9 per cent. in the some period. At no time in our history has the earnings of the people of the United States been as great, measured by the powers of the pnrchase of the com forts and nee.ssaries of life. as to-day. Referring to Vest's assertions that never before the present time had there been such disturbances of labor or such hostile and inimical relations between employe and employer, Aldrich presented the statisties of strikes in each year, from 1880 to 1890, in the United States. These strikes varied from 610 in 1880 to 790 in 1890, whereas, in Great Britain, the paradise of tariff re formers, 3,164 strikes occurred in 1889. Vest's statement as to the prostration of agricultural interests was diametrically opposed to the actual facts. The farmers to-day, with an equal number of bushels of grain or pounds of wheat, could buy more and better clothing, machinery or supplies than ever before. Vest replied to Aldrich: "In the face of the recent carnage at Homestead, the sena tor from Rhode Island repsesented that there were most amicable relations ex ictino between emnlorers and employed in the United States. Either the American workingman," said Vest, "must be an ane archist by nature, or else he is to-day op pressed and robbed by his employer." As to agricultural prosperity. Vest asserted that the price of farm lands has steadily gone down in Missouri and other largely agricultural states. Paddock denied that statement as far as Nebraska is concerned, and Davis (Mann.) and Allison (Isa.) put in similar denials for their states. Pettiarew, rising to say something about North Dakota's increase of value, Vest re marked it was because the land was entered at $1.25 per acre. Allen said land bought in Washington two years ago at govern ment prices now sells for from $10 to $25 per acre. Vest retorted that he didn't doubt it. He was out there a few years ago when they were asking a thousand dollars an inch for land in Tacoma and other places. The debate was continued by Allison and Palmer. Palmer didn't believe the repub lican party was responsible for such events as the Homestead tragedy, but it was re sponsible for having promised that its leg islation would make such occurrences im possible. The republican party, since it ceased to be a great patriotic party, has been wedded to the dead issues of the war. The protection party had joined it for its own selfish Interests.
