Warroad Minn Oct 10 At least
two hundred persons have perished in
the forest fires raging in this district

hundred and one thousand according
10 information received here today
Only rain can stop the flames and
rain is not very probable at this sea

distance of a half mile Included In
the burned afea are the Rat Portage
Lumber companys mill and lumber
yard containing 10000000 feet of
lumber the Western Canada Flour
Milling company and surrounding
buildings
v Fifty houses were destroyed and
scores of people are homeless Fire

be seen along both banks of Rainy
River

It is possible the rest of Rainy Rjivgr

international bridge have so far es
caped the fire as well as the building
of the ShevllnMathiu Lumber com

of the Canadian Northern Railroad
company
Most of the women and children of
these towns have been taken on spec
ial trains to points east and many
more are on steamers ready to leave
should the wind change and the fire
spread
The fire driven by a furious north
west wind is beyond control and
must burn itself out
While a wind is sweeping a sea of
tire eastward on the north side of
the Rainy river at a velocity of fifty
miles an hour the great l ody of
flames has passed this section reveal
ing a calamity that already reaches
the proportions of an international
disaster
Sixty blackened cropses have been
found In the path of the flames and
a vast area is yet to be searched for
the dead while the towns of Spooner
Beaudette and Pitt have been totally
destroyed with a property loss that
cannot be intelligently calculated at
present
With the exception of the destruc
tion of the mills and stock of the Rat
Portage Lumber company Rainy
River although in the course of the
flames escaped great damage The
flames touched a corner of the town
but the principal loss is confined to
the south side of the river and was
chiefly sustained along the American
border

BELIEVED THERE IS SOMEHOPE
POR THE ENTOMBED MINERS
IN MINE OF COLORADO FUEL
AND IRON COMPANY
Herald Special
Starkville Colo Oct 10 There Is
a chance though slight that the min
ers entombed by the explosion in the
Colorado Fuel and Iron companys
mine here may be alive By use of
the gigantic fan installed irr the main
tunnel the rescuers were able today
to gain one mile on the after damp
which filled the mine State Mine In
spector Jones in charge of the res
cue work said he hoped to reach the
point of explosion this afternoon The
mine is one of the largest in the
state and contains numerous cross
cuts and airways and it is believed
possible that some of the miners if
not caught by the explosion were
able to find refuge in these secluded
chambers formed by the labyrinth of
tunnels
Early Report
Starkville Colo Oct 9 Entombed
by an explosion in the Starkville
mine of the Colorado Fuel and Iron
company at least fiftytwo men are
the objects of heroic effort of res
cuers who worked throughout today
trying to penetrate the black depths
of the mine in the hope that some
or probably all of the imprisoned
miners might be rescued alive
The prescence of black damp which
almost Invariably follows in the wake
of coal mine explosions made the
work of the rescuers extremely haz
ardous and time and again today
embers of parties were overcome
In order that their lives could be
sav ed
Late thist afternoon those superin
tending the work of rescue decided
that none should enter the mine until
a medium of protection in the shape
of a portable fan was installed and
rescue work was called off for the
time being The fan reached the por
tal of the mine at 4 oclock and under
the supervision of 4he chief electri
cian of the Colorado Fuel and Iron
company was mounted upon an elec
tric motor car and gradually pushed
forward into the new slope working
as it went driving the gas ahead and
as was hoped to an airshaft thou
sands of feet inside the mine where
it might escape into the open air
The greatest caution possible was
exercised that the motor carrying the
fan should not be advanced too rap
idly and a sudden rush of gas or
kickback overwhelm the men ope
rating the machine and snuff out
their lives
A touching feature of the rescue
work was the selfsacrifice and devo
tion to duty of James Wilson super
intendent of the Starkville mine who
left a sick bed to lead the men who
bravely volunteered to face the dead
ly black damp that their entrapped
comardes should be rescued dead or
alive
