ers that there - was need for all the

A score or more of homes, perched j
upon the sides of the hill, In Baltl-,

The situation in Mill Valley has
quieted down to such an extent thai 800 !
soldiers of the Sixteenth infantry and
the First cavalry troop have been or
dered to proceed to Larkspur early this
morning. These men will join the
forces of Forester Dubois, who has been
In naltimore canyon since yesterday
morning. '»■;« ■ ;
First Assistant Fire Chief John R.
Maxwell of San Francisco, who is in
Mill Valley with a detachment of lire
men from this city, late last night said
that he considered the situation in the
vicinity of Mill Valley m critical, not
withstanding the fact that the fires are
pome distance from the town or re
ported under control. He believes that
the fire which is bearing: down Into
Baltimore canyon toward Larkspur
might possibly swing back over Corte
ICadera ridge, through Boyle's gulch,
and jump the clearing on Warner's
*!dge.
MK\ DRAFTED
In Mill Valley the stores, excepting
the grocery shops, were all ordered
rosed yesterday by Mayor 11. A. Klyce.
This was for the purpose of securing
the services of every able bodied man
to go to the front, either as a - fire
tflghter or to do patrol duty"" along? the
edges of the burned zones.
The fife fighters here were Mill -Val
ley citizens who had gone to the scene
as Boon as the danger was realized.
There were from 40 to 50 citizens in
the crowd and 500 soldiers. Captain
WcCauley of the coast artillery was, in
charge of the soldiers. Later. thes e
men were reinforced by several, de
tachments of infantry men who had. had
several hours' rest.
The citizens were led by William
JUtchie, a motorman on the Northwest
ern Pacific. F. F. Bostwick, president
of the Bank of Mill Valley, worked here
■with the others. At times these men
fought the flames hand to hand,-using
Backs and blankets. Many of those who
grot too close to the heat had narrow
escapes. Later in the day Ritchie re- I
turned to Mill Valley and reported at
the bank, the citizens , headquarters.
1A.3 he stepped into the doorway Ritchie
called out:
'Boys. I think we've got her! I think
fehe's under control: I'm all in."
Then he fainted.
Ritchie was removed to the Red
Cross hospital headquarters, which
■were established earlier In the day in
the building of the Outdoor Art league.
He was given medical attention, and
later it was said his condition was not
considered serious.
The task of transferring detach
ments of soldiers and naval reserves
from Mill Valley to Larkspur was
started late last night. It is the plan
of Colonel Bell to send 800 men to
Larkspur and keep about the same
number in the vicinity of Mill Valley. I
The first fire fighters to leave the ;
valley were naval reserves under the
command of Lieutenant H. B. Smith.
These men were taken over by auto
moliile trucks.
About 1,600 soldiers and sailors are
In tne field. Late last night 200 sail
ors from the South Dakota were or
dered to the fire lines. ,
Among those injured yesterday in the
fight to save Mill Valley was Corporal
A. .1. Helm, Company I. Sixteenth in
fantry, who fell over a bluff in Blyth
dale canj-on. Some of the men over
come by heat and taken to the Presidio
hospital, after being given temporary
relief by the Red Cross workers, were:
.1. D. A very. Company 147, C. A. C.,
E. Backer, Company K. Sixteenth in
fantry: A. T. Cordes. Company D, Sixth
infantry: John Davis, Company D, Sixth
infantry; B. O. H. Fitzpatrick, Comp
any E. Sixteenth infantry; H. D.
JToore, Company D, Sixth infantry; L.
Xeuhecker, Company 66, C. A. C; F.
Smith, Company K. Sixteenth infantry;
11. I:. Winner, Company X, Sixteenth
infantry; James Wrierley. Twenty-fifth]
company, C. A. C.; W. A. Chase, Six- i
teenth infantry.
Advices received in the office of Gov
ernor Johnson In Sacramento last night
from State Forester Homans were to
the effect that unless a violent wind
arose during the night to fan the flames
anew the situation in Mill Valley was
"well under control, although danger
had not been eliminated. The state
forester informed the governor's office
that at the time of sending the mes
sage he could see no reason for calling
additional troops of the national guard.
M fOIKX SAVE TREES
Far above Mill Valley, where the
forest tops and the sky seem to meet,
two women fought heroically yesterday
to save the young redwoods on the
Bummit of Mine ridge In what is
known as the Lapachet tract. The
owner of this land Is E. J. Lapachet of]
Fan Francisco, and one of the women
■was his wife.
Mrs. Lapachet and Miss Charlotte
Lafflin worked along the pipe line
■which runs along the ridge to the west
of the Cascades, swinging axes . and
brush hooks in widening the path to
make a clearing to check the flames
should they come in that direction. Mrs.
Lapachet and Miss Lafflin have been on
the ridge since Monday afternoon.
There are several cottages and cabins
on the eastern slope which have been
deserted by the owners.
At 11 o'clock last night, Charles
Kurtyon. president of the scenic rail
way, said that he believed the fire un
der control, so far as the, valley and
Jiuir "Woods are concerned, unless ex
traordinary conditions materialized be
fore; daylight this morning. It is the
plan of the railroad officials to put 1,- ,
500 fresh men into the field at day
lisht this morning to stamp out every
"burning ember on the mountain slope.
Conditions were so encouraging that
Mr. Runyon announced that trains
•would be running to Muir Woods and
the tavern next Sunday on regular
schedule; also, that an effort would be
made to resume the local train service
In Mill Valley as soon as possible.
3VQ TROOPERS HURT
Colonel Bell said at midnight that
Eo far as he had heard none of the
soldiers were missing. r Furthermore,
he reported that lie understood from
his officers that none of the privates
ha.d been even seriously injured.
Adjutant General Edward A. Forbes
arrived in Mill Valley early yesterday
morning from Santa Cruz.", Five
officers, all the others of the . state
militia being at the Santa Cruz I in- ]
struction camp, mobilized the 300 men,
who were taken to Mill Valley yester
day. These men* may be transferred
to the" Baltimore canyon this morn-ing.

In the Blythdale canyon the home Of
P.alston -White, called the "Garden of
Allah," which: was in constant menace
for three days, was reported last night
to be beyond the reach of the flames.. :
Not a house In Mill Valley has been
burned, and the ; physical loss *to im
provements and valuable timber land
is negligible.
The top of Mount Tamalpais above
the tavern has been swept clean and it
will be two or three years before the
fire scars have been covered with a new
growth. /
Mrs. Reichel Osman of 804 Stanyan
street, who has been in charge of Red
Cross work in Mill Valley, telephoned
to Mayor Rolph yesterday asking for
provisions for the fire fighters. : In re
sponse the mayor sent over great quan

several days. I met him on the street
shortly, afterward and he wanted me
to take him back. He said ihe would

the habit of criticising his wife for
