Haughan is reported to be destroyed, the last word from there having been that the fire was dangerously near and the telephone operator was prepar ing to flee. The area covered by the fire is roughly 100 miles square, most of it in the mountains and sparsely settled districts. It is difficult to obtain in formation from any of the points, and Impossible to reach some of the isolat ed places. There is a probability that there has been serious loss of life, as there are prospectors, camping parties and lumber men all through the moun tains, and the fire may have come upon them while they slept last night or they may have wakened this morning to find themselves cut off. George Wallbillig, a packer, and two companions reached Missoula tonight from Adair. a station on the Milwau kee road, west of Missoula, about 100 miles, arrived here this afternoon, hav ing ridden their horses nearly to death in escaping the flames.

EXPRESS LITTLE HOPE It the fire is not brought under con trol tonight there is little hope of stopping It, and the whole region be tween here and Yellowstone park, In cluding the Middle Creek and Gallatln regions, will then be in very grave danger.., A slight change in tin- wind would take the fire directly to the spot where a dangerous conflagration was ■topped two weeks ago. Another fire of serious proportions i:i reported tonight between fttorrs nnd Hoffman, 12 miles southeast of here.

FLAMES NOW THREATEN 2,000.000 TIMBER ACRES Situation in Southern Oregon Alarms Washington Officials WASHINGTON, Aug.

Potter to night received advices from Super-1 visor Buck of Medford, Oregon, stat ing the continued spread of the fires in southern Oregon had revealed clear ly the work of incendiarism. Mr. Pot ter would not discuss, even inferen tially, what may be the purpose of the firebug, pending an official report. For est rangers are now engaged in round ing mi definite evidence. Mr. Potter views with nnxiety this particular side of the situation and in timated it may be necessary to call upon Governor Benson of Oregon for aid of the Oregon National Guard.

"When I got up to go out, I was nearly crazy with the heat. I stag gered from side to side, and once fell to the ground, cutting my face. My partner, Clark, was climbing beside me and seemed to be unconscious when we left. He has not been found, and I think he must have been killed.

PLOT OVERTHROW OF KING MANUEL Portuguese Newspapers Claim Clerical Party Is Plan ning Revolution REGIMENTS JOIN MOVEMENT Propose to Stamp Out Republic ans and Establish Mili tary Dictatorship \ . (Associated Prosn) LISBON, Aug. 21.—The newspapers today print alarming reports of an al leged plot of the clerical party for the overthrow of the Portuguese govern ment and the establishment of a mili tary dictatorship. The Seculo says the clerical party's strong and growing dissatisfaction with the liberal policy of the government has culminated in the organization of a revolution to overthrow the adminis tration, seize Its members and set up a military dictatorship, the first object of which will be to stamp out the Re publicans. El Mondo says that several regiments have joined the movement nnd the duke of Oporto, the heir apparent to trie Portuguese throne, whiie ai the Casino ; it Cascaes last night was ap prised of this fact and took refuge in the fortress. The paper says also that alarm Is general and that the military and naval forces are under arms night and day. King ManueJ is at Bussaco moun tain, near Ooimbra, The government is greatly disturbed over the intense aeitivity of the Re publicans in preparing for the general elections next Sunday. FIX II AISMS STORJOU The candidates for office have en tered every constituency in the coun try. The authorities have searched the homes of a number of Republicans and have found stores of arms and am munition. It is known that a quantity of rifles and revolvers are being smuggled into the country along the Spanish fron tier, and that the Republicans no\\^ are well armed. No explanation has been vouchsafed by the government as to why It con siders the papal nuncio at Lisbon, Mgr. Dr. J. Tonti, objectionable. The seml-offlolal communication published Saturday said the Portuguese charge d'affaires to the Vatican had explained the situation to the pope. Despite the silence of the govern ment It is understood the trouble be tween 1 It and Mgr. Tonti had its origin in the. campaign of clericals following the government's censuring the arch bishop of Braga for suppressing a pa per without submitting the matter to the government, and for the alleged ac tion of the Vatican In placing diffi culties in the way of the appointment of an ambassador to the Vatican.
