Every business bouse and nearly all the residences are destroyed. The depot, together with 15 or 30 freight ears and four large elevator?, are gone. The loss wilj be nearly $300,000. with bet very little insurance. and hundreds of families are left homeless and utterly destitute-. It *»s caused by a prairie fire which came in from the northwest. One hundred citizen-' front Mitchell went up to help figLt the fire, bat a ; raging wind prevailed and their efforts | availed but little. A special tram [ carrying provisions was dispatched f from here to-night. Specials to the Pioiteer Proa from Dakota and Minnesota report severe ; Kales with considerable damage. At [ Jackson, Minn., the severest storm | ; that prevailed in that country for (years was experienced. . This after noon a prairie tire was raging near the village, and only the most strenuous efforts prevented the destruction of the village. News from the prairie re port ; great loss of property. At Gary, Dak., the wind blew with great .forte, and the air was tilled with sand "and dust to such an extent as to ren der it quite dark. The mercury fell 10 degrees in two hours.

The fire invaded a large cattle corral and 40 or 30 cattle were badly burned. The rest broke through the "enclosure and escaped. The destruction was causets>y a prairie fire, which at last accounts was still burning. A special from Andover, Dak., says ■the residence of A. Swame. about" a mile from town, was burned, together with most of its contents. The in mates were at dinner, when a prairie tire was discovered near the house, and all rushed out barely in time to save their lives. At Sac-red Heart. Minn., the house of Chas.

It has been reported to the department that Kempinski was 18 or 19 years old when he left Russia for the Lin ted States. While the depart ment will investigate the case thor oughly, there is said to lie need for caution, for with this statement of the case it may appear that Kempinski is liable for military service, and that his emigration to the l'nited States was nothing less than military desertion.

SAX F*A!*CISCO, April 2.—Custom house officers this morning seized 2224 tive-tael boxes of opium, valued at 915,568, which had been smuggled. The drug was found concealed under a pile of fat in a soap and candle fac tory conducted by Richard Ahff in South San Francisco. Ahlf and H. < iaefcdez, a saloonkeeper at the mail dock, were arrested and held by Judge Sawyer in S2OOO bonds. It is thought the opium was lowered from a China steamer into the water and taken to the candle factory. Other arrests are expected to follow. It now seems the opium came from the China steamer Arabic. During the past few days customs officials have been keeping an eye on this steamer, which has been lying at the Pacific Mail Oo.'s wharf. The super vision was so quietly managed that the suspected persons "thought the oppor j tunity bud arrived to smuggle ashore | a big load of opium. Last night the [ transfer was accomplished. The stuff i was put off in small l>oats and towed ! down to the Potrero, where it was • concealed on the premises of Ahlf. ! where it was seized as above recorded. Charles Berry was arrested this I afternoon as he was leaving the steamer City of Puebla with eight five | tael boxes of opium concealed on his I person, and booked on a charge of ! smuggling.

The court "was asked hv the Times for an indictment of a whole nation, a proceeding which Burke declared in teasiblc.

He claimed the use of the word ittobil i»er in communications of members of the league did not prove the existence of a military plot. Notwithstanding the action of the government in dis solving the league, the organisation would continue to exist aad would show its full strength whenever and wherever it might be needed. Laguerre. another of the accused, followed with a speech in a similar vein. He declared the motives of the organizers of the league were purely patriotic. The installation of the new pro cureur-general has been fixed for Thursday. Immediately after assum ing his new duties Beau'repaire will be requested by the government to insti tute proceedings against Boulancrer.

BERUJC, April 2.— Bismarck, reply - ingto the birthday congratulations of the Central manufacturers' associa tion, said he looked forward to the continued maintenance of peace. This, he believed, would give an increasing impetus to the present gratifying de veiopment of German industry. In his opinion, the guarantee of peace was to be found not only in the mon archical institutions of the country, but also and in a special degree the monarchical sentiments of the German people.

Bisk and Basin's Mai in Sttttk - THE RESTON ADDITION. ADVERTISEMENT OF f■■ - ■' ; \ A week ago we promised to announce in this space to-day the date of the first sale of lots in Kenton's addition. We had hoped and confidently expected that the addition would be in shape to put on the market by April 10 at latest. Owing, however, to more or less wet weather, the clearing of the addition has been some what retarded and it will not be ready for the market until about a week later than was expected. THE FIRST SALE OF LOTS n Kenton addition will be inaugurated on THURSDAY, APRIL IS, We are authorized by Captain lien ton to sell only one-third of the lots in the addition, amounting to 100. It is probable that only a portion of these 100 lots will be put on the market April IS, and that it will be several months before the balance will be offered. Before the first day of the sale we will state definitely in all the papers in which we advertise, just how many lots will be offered at the first sale. No lots will be reserved for anyone before the date of the first sale. Many of our personal friends have asked us to accept deposits of from S2OO to SSOO to allow them the' first selections. Everyone, strangers and friends alike, have re ceived the same reply—that the addition was not yet ready for the market and that until it was, no one could make selections. Every person, of the hundreds who have spoken to us on this subject for the j«ast month will substantiate this statement. How It Is Flatted. The following is an extract from the POBT-INTKLLU;*J;CKR'S re- port of last week's meeting of the City Council: "The plat of Itenton's addition to the city of Seattle was sub mitted by Crawford A Conover, and was approved by City Engin eer Scurry and the Council. The plat is a particularly nice piece of work, and the land is laid out on a broad gauge principle. The addition covers the plateau on the summit of (he second hill on Madison street, one of the most sightly points about the city. The lots are platted 60x120 feet, except those facing on Madison street, which are 50x100 feet. All lots which touch Madison street are made to face that street. There is a sixteen-foot alley In each block. The streets are 66 feet wide, except Division street, which is 90 feet. Including fractions, caused by the diagonal coarse of Madison through the addition, there are 320 lots." SCENIC BEAUTIES. We think no one will question the statement that the Renton tract is the very choicest piece of residence property in the city. Of the large number of persons who have told us of their determina- tion to secure lots there, 90 per cent, are of the very best people in the city, who intend to build handsome homes there. The addi- tion covers the summit of the second hill, and is just far enough irom the business center for choice residence property. It is high and dry and sightly. There is not a bad lot in the addition, or one without a view. The view is a grand panorama of scenery— the most varied and comprehensive afforded at any point in the city. From nearly every lot or. the addition can be seeo the city, the bay, the Olympic mountains, the Cascade mountains. Lake Washington. Mount Rainier. Mount Hood and Mount Baker GENERAL INFORMATION. Our instructions from Captain Renton are to sell one-third of the 320 lots distributed throughout Uie addition. From present indications these will all be sold the first week, and when they are gone no more can be obtained at any price. Captain Renton will positively sell only one-third of the lots at this time. He may possibly sell another third later on. but it will be at largely in- creased prices, and he intends to keep a large holding there for a permanent investment. It will I* readily seen how desirable an Investment a purchase at this first sale will be. No one can secure lots at any price before the first day of the sale. Everyone will have an equal chance, and we *j>etially ask ail who intend to purchase to look the property over thoroughly in advance. The clearing is *o far advanced that this can now be done to advantage Before the first day of the sale we will go through the plat with Captain Kenton and fix prices on the iota to be sold. Price# will be low enough to assure ready sales ami good profits to purchaser-. There will be no brass bands or auction sales. We don't believe in that way of doing business, f here will be one *cale of prices and no variations therefrom See Our Column Advertisement of Choice Business, Residence and Acre Property, elsewhere in This Paper.
