LOGGING CAMP BURNED.
Last night the towns of Svensen, Or.,
and Skamokawa, Wash., were threatened
with destruction, but the changing of the
wind saved them. At Svensen the flames
were almost upon 5,000,000 feet of logs at
C. C. Masten's camp, but only 100,000 feet
were destroyed. At Skamokawa the mill
and logging camp of the, Willamette Pulp
and Paper Company were destroyed and
tneloss there probably will reach $10,000.
From Slatskanie, Or., west, a large tract
of timber land is reported to have been
burned over, but the danger that threat
ened the towns In the vicinity has now
passed. Many farmhouses are said to
have been destroyed, the Inhabitants flee
ing for their lives. For a time it seemed
that the entire town of Svensen would be
laid in ashes,, and the residents were
ready to leave with their valuables.
Skamokawa was in a similar predicament
for some hours. •
Near - Fort Columbia, the .new Govern
ment post, great flres raged, and assist
ance was sent thither from 'this city and
Fort Stevens. Toward morning the dan
ger passed. South of Astoria several
small flres are still burning, but It Is be
lieved the worst is over.
LIKE A FALL OF SNOW. *
It is estimated to-night that 15,000 acres'
of timber land has been burned over, but
it will be some days before the exact
damage can be determined. That the loss
will noty exceed $250,000 In this vicinity is
probable. "" ¦ ' •
•While there were no flres within six or
seven miles of the city a shower of ashes
fell during the morning. For three hours
the ashfall was so heavy that it resem
bled snow, covering the ground to a depth
of a quarter of an inch. There '.was great
fear among the timid, many actually be
lieving their time had come.
The weather, was quite cool to-night
and there are indications of a rainfall
within twenty-four hours. •

HOPING RAIN WILL -COME.
SEATTLE, Sept. 12.— The density of
smoke irom forest fires in various parts
of adjacent country districts is Increas
ing, jfeopio everywhere are anxiously
watching for acnange in the wind, in-,
dicative of approaching rain. So- tar but
little hope has been given. Though the
barometer has been lulling- steadily, but
slowly,~all day the light "breeze is north.
Toward midnight a slight change, could
be felt and it was hoped that this meant
that the wind" was veering' to the.south
ern quarter. : ; .. ' '¦ • „ ••', ,
To this time but little damage has re
sulted in this . vicinity.-vexcept indirectly.
Transportation facilities on all sides are
badly impaired and communication with
many.' counties is cut off. Nearly, all mails
are late.' The most serious fear Is that
Enumclaw, a. little town just south of Se
attle, will be entirely wiped out by the
fires. People coming into the city to
night, though, report that but a few
houses and oat fields have been burned.
The citizens rare. all fighting the fire in

the town. - . •_ „,. •; , ; .. /
Captain- Bryant, federal inspector of
bulls, well known all along the Pacific
Coast, and A. P. Stockwell, a wealthy log
ger, had a thrilling 'ride yesterday after
noon. For a half hour they rode through
an area of timber, .roaring with flre.
Burning trees fell on every | side, but the
travelers ' were successful In reaching the
outskirts In safety. A five-minute halt at
any point would have resulted in their
death, so "fierce were the walls of flame
flanking either side of the road.
HEAVY LOSS OF LIFE.
PORTLAND Or., Sept. 12.— The forest
flres now raging in the mountains of
Western Oregon and Western -Washing
ton .are probably the most widespread
ever known. A northwest wind last night
and .to-day fanned the flames and spread
them over new districts. Within a ra
dius of seventy-five miles- of this city five
persons are reported missing and it is
believed they have perished in the flames.
They are Mrs. Hendrickson and two chil
dren, at Fifth Plain, Clark County, Wash
ington; L. C. Palmer,. Bridal Veil, Or.,
and Trlckey,- Brewer, Or.
The flames have driven many families
from their homes and it is known that
many houses and barns and much live
stock have been destroyed. - -; ;
At Lents, six miles east of here, sev
eral houses were burned to-day and the'
line of the Oregon Water Power' and
Railway Company to • that village has
At Bridal Veil, thirty miles east of here,
two sawmills were burned, and in Clack
amas County, near Springwater, at least
fifteen houses and barns have been de
stroyed. In I Clark County, Washington,
ten miles from Vancouver, eight farm
houses were burned and three lives are
reported lost.- ,
In this city the houses are covered by
ashes and the lights had to be turned on
early in the afternoon on account of the
thick smoke that enveloped the city. -
¦ The wife of John Myers, a farmer, was
burned to death In their home in I Clark
County, .Washington, yesterday.
DABKNESS AT MIDDAY.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Sept. 12.— At midday
the sun refused to give forth light and
stygian. darkness enveloped the town.
Terrible forest flres are devastating the
country surrounding . Olympla. At 9
o'clock this morning it began -to grow
dark and by 10 o'clock the city was in
complete darkness and inose places of
business that did not suspend turned . on
their electric lights. Work was suspended
In mills and workshops and laborers con
gregated on the streets and discussed the
unusual phenomenon.' The staruing fea
ture was the changing. lights in the sky.
At one time It would be blood red in the
east and at another time in the west; then
from east to west and at times disap
pearing- entirely, leaving the sky as dark
as the earth. Considerable nervousness
was observed on the streets. While for
est flres are expected every summer,- noth
ing like the present ones have been known
in this country. So wrought up are some
that they anxiously inquire: "Is Mount
Rainier in a state of eruption?" Some
advanced' the idea that an eclipse was on.
Logging camps and- shingle mills are
burning in all directions from town, as are
dwelling houses and barns. The head of
Puget Sound is a seething mass of flames
and unless rain comes it is hard to tell
where the damage will end.
A Second Day Advent camp-meeting is
in session here and the unusual condition
has given rise to great excitement. Many
believe the last day: has come, and in
white ¦ slippers and robes the elect" are
awaiting the coming so long looked, for.
Reports from surrounding towns say
that the people are congregated in and
about the churches. .

score or more of Knights of the
"Grip and Gall," sprinkled in ;
among the regular gathering , of
racegoers, Installed additional
noise and life Into the . gain© at Agricul
tural Park this afternoon to do honor to
drummers' day. A race for named horses
to be driven by ; commercial men was
served up : on the* menu for their special
benefit, creating more or less : amuse
ment. :-'. ; ' : ¦ "' , . ..'-. .. " ¦ . .
It was taken" by Toots, the pronounced
favorite in the betting, driven by Harry
Bell, with Rosie Gold, over which Emll
Heinrich held the ribbons,' capturing sec r
end money. In the second heat Toots ap
peared as uncertain as a duck boat, -and
Heinrich landed Rosie an easy winner.
No records were lowered, the best time
recorded being: 3:40. At the commence
ment of the race > F. I A. ¦¦ Johnson seized
last position with Maggie C. No amount
of persuasion could influence the mare to
relinquish It In the two heats following.
The other events were all well contest
ed. The special trot won finally after a
six-heat struggle by Zambra, owned by
Li. J. Rose Jr., resulted in a dump for
the knowing ones, who got in wrong and
were kept as busy as curbstone brokers
getting, out. Of the four favorites in the
running events, Gavlota and Coming
Event were the successful ones. Farmer
Charley Bunch and his mare Lady Fair
were responsible for the troubles of the
speculative element in the, betting on the
trot. In .the early wagering done the
daughter of Gosslper brought $20, with
the field going at $11, at which quotations
the insiders filled up. It did look pretty
good for a time, as the farmer and his
mare took the first two heats, like break-
Ing eggs. The mare looked tired and
blown at the termination of the sec
ond heat, although her admirers kept on
purchasing at odds of even money against
the field. It was said the Lady was af
flicted with the "thumps." This was pos
sibly true, for In the third heat she fin
ished fourth, stopping to a walk almost
the last sixteenth. Shelby winning from

LOS ANGELES. Sept 12.— Baseball of a
clean, snappy variety was served up by
the Looloos to-day, and the result was
disastrous to the Sleuths. Cutter was hit
freely, while Mills was in good form.
That tells the tale of Fisher's defeat.
There was some clever fielding, however,
without a suspicion of yesterday's nu
merous fumbles. The visitors' single tally
was made on Casey's single to right,
which was stretched for three bases when
the ball bounded over Lawler's head.
Sheehan followed with a liner over second
base. Attendance 1500. The score:
.and Wins for Los Angeles.
Holds Down the Sacramento Batters
BEFORE the Ponies could rub the
sleep out of their eyes and awaken
to a full realization that they were
In a baseball mix-up, yesterday, P. Loh
man's suburbanites had three men scat
tered about the bases in the first inning.
JdcCreedle was resting on the first sack,
Streib was at second and Kid Mohler was
dancing on his toes at third, waiting for
a chance to skip home. There was but
one hand gone. It seemed the Oaklanders
would score a few times before the locals
would get out of dreamland and Into the
Fortune, however, came to their assist
ance and the fans were relieved of the
fear of Oakland scoring in a most mirac
ulous manner. Hurlburt hit an easy
fly toward third. Phyle sprinted for it,
and as it appeared almost certain that he
would capture the ball the three runners
held their bases. Phyle stumbled and fell.
Before the men on the bases could take
advantage of the mishap Shay picked up
the ball and threw it home, thus forcing
Mohler out at thi'plate. It was quickly
ieturne4 to Whalen, who was guarding
third, and Streib was forced out there.
This double play retired the side.
After being thus strangely rescued from
the enemy the fans felt certain it was on
the card for the Ponies to win. That they
did not is due to their own slovenly and
careless playing. Whalen pitched pen
nant-winning ball. He allowed but four
scattered hits. Not until the last inning
were the leaders able to get their one
lone tally on the board. They gained it
through a wild throw on the part of
Phyle and the slowness of Nordyke in
getting the ball home to head off Mc-
Creedie. - >
In this Inning McCreedi© led off with a
hit. Hurlburt flew easy to Phyle. Dev
ereaux sent a grounder to Phyle, who
threw wide to Delmas at second, thus al
lowing McCreedie to get to third and the
batter to reach second. The chances of
victory for the home team appeared blue.
Franks hit a speedy one to Delmas, who
fumbled it, but recovered it In time to
catch the runner at first , When Del
mas miscued, McCreedie started for
home. After catching the ball, Nordyke
held it for a second or two to make sure
that he had It. His tardiness cost the
home team the game, for It gave Mc-
Creedie time to cross the rubber.
Schmidt had fine control, and, like his
opponent, allowed but four hits and kept
them well distributed. As Dunleavy was
busy nursing a sore jaw, Hurlburt, the
utility man, was delegated to look after
left garden. Score:
