A STATE MAKES
APPEAL FOR AID
Northeastern Minnesota Hard
Hit by Forest Fires
CHISHOLM IN FLAMES PATH
Prosperous City of the Mesaba Range
Encompassed by Raging Forest
Fires Is Powerless to Protect Itself
and Inhabitants Are Compelled to
Flee Leaving Their All to the De
vouring Flames Several Mining
Towns and Thousands of Acres of
Rich Agricultural Region Are Like
wise DevastatedGovernor Johnson
Appeals for Aid
After destroying the town of Chis
holm in northeastern Minnesota on the
Mesaba range and burning over thou
sands of acres In St Louis Carleton
and Itasca counties In Minnesota and
the northern portion of Douglass coun
ty Wisconsin the many forest fires
which have been raging in these dis
tricts have been checked and if the
wind does not spring up again it is
not likely that further damage will be
greatWhen
When the strong wind which had
driven the flames before it in many
timbered and agricultural districts
subsided the thousands of homeless
people were given a chance to take
stock of their belongings and prepare
to replace the many burned farms and
settlements and the once flourishing
town of Chisholm sixtyfive miles
north of Duluth
The subsiding of the wind enabled
the inhabitants of Buhl and Nashwauk
to save those towns Several build
ings at the edge of Nashwauk were
burned but by valiant allnight work
the 1000 miners and citizens prevent
ed the flames from sweeping over the
village The town was entirely sur
round d by a wall of fire and its es
cape from obliteration was remarka
ble There is little timber adjacent
to Buhl and although forest fires com
pletely surrounded the village the 600
Inhabitants had only to extinguish the
incipient blazes started by falling
Osraiida to protect the Village
Chlshoim presents a schene of ruin
and desolation Blackened piles of
oharred wond little heaps of gray
ashes stirred by the fitful breeze
scorched g nt skeletons of brick and
mortar comprise what was one of the
most flourishing towns in the great
Mesaba iron range
The only remaining buildings are
the new 125000 high school the grade
school the Catholic church the Italian
church and a dozen dwellings in the
southernmost parts of the town The
damage to property Is estimated at
1000000 and to personal property at
throequarters of a million dollars
Hibbing five miles west of Chis
holm afforded accommodations to
about 4000 refugees from Chisholm
The Duluth Mesaba Northern
started a car of tents from Duluth for
Hibbing on receipt of a message from
Mayor Weirick W A McGonagle
vice president and general manager of
the road said he would rush tents and
supplies if necessary to Ribbing as
fast as needed and a white city has
sprung up on the environs of Hibbing
Foodstuffs will not be needed as the
merchants have large supplies and an
order from Duluth has been placed for
what is desired

Over a ton arid a half of dynamite

ment and 500 miners worked hero
ically but on account of the inflam

they were swept away like tinder The
