T. B. Reed, a merchant at Pierce, reached the city this morning and Is able to give direct testimony on the forest fire situation in that section. "The fires at present are mostly In range 6," said Mr. Reed this morning. "They are running In the state and individual holdings but the synd'c&te property Is buttle little damaged. The fire fighters are organized under Theo dore Fohl for the syndicate and C. C, Brown for the state. Mr. Fohl probably has no superior as a woodsman and trained fire fighter. He has had abun dance of experience and everything that can be done will be done to save the valuable timber. It is Impossible at this time to estimate the damage "The forces are well distributed and the fire is kept within reasonable bounds. This point should be empha sised, the prompt action of the syndi cate forces has saved a loss that could have been easily ten times what It now Is had they not come to the rescue. The Individual holders and the state have suffered the most loss up-to-date but nothing compared to what they would have done had not Nat Brown and the syndicate Interests taken up the fight when they did. The Individual holders should take a warning from the experience of this year and have a force of trained woodsmen ready to protect their property In case that fires arise in another season. I should judge that from 60 to 100 men are now em ployed in lighting the fires arktl I see no hope for great relief before a rain comes to stop the flames." Appreciates the Fair. Mr. and Mrs. C. C.

Only a nominal sum is charged for a ride on these launches and the trip Is a most pleasant one. The illuminations at night, he sàys, are simply grand and one must see It In order to realize Its full splendor. The whole city 's covered with lt-can dle power lights.

It la neat and well arranged and compares equally well with the exhibits of other stateo. The only objection that could be of fered he aald was that the fruit dis play was perhaps deficient. Engine Tested Yesterday. Yesterday the large engine being built for Ell Bolick, of Aaotln, was find up for a teat of Its machinery. With J. J. Daley at the throttle and Prank Btgsby at the steering wheel the efew glne was given a start and shot MfOM the street for Madgwlck'i bam like a railroad locomotive under a full head of steam and Mr. Graham says would have no doubt got Inside if the heavy machine had not broken through »ho sidewalk. At the same time the largo number of spectators who had con gregated. to witness the start made a wild scramble for places of safety and shortly after returned to the scene very cautiously until fully assured that the big machine had been calmed down and would not be permitted to create another such an exciting episode. Mr. Graham says for a five mile speed to which the engine was geared. It out-traveled anything he ever saw. The only remark of criticism was made by a bystander who said It ought to have air brakes to stop It with. The only thing wrong is the too high speed. Every part of the machinery works ad mirably and the engine shows a power equal to two ordinary engines. The foundry company has the permission of Bolick to keep the màchlne In their pos session until It has been fully tested and In a working condition satisfactory to the builders. The speed will be reg ulated nnd tests will be made at in I tervals until everything Is In a perfect I working order when the engine will be turned over to Mr. Bolick.
