TS.&TTLAEESTREET BEAT FIRE AT MOTEAPOLIS A sudden Explosion of the In- flammaWe Bases in the Washburn Millt Five Mills Other vaJnable Buildings a Complete Ruin. Sixteen Persons Killed and Many Wounded. Losses Sustained Estimated at $1,500.000One Million to i the Mi ng Interests, We clip the following editorial in regard to the disaster, from the St. Paul PIONEER PRESS: A terrible calamity has befallen our noble and beautiful city of Min neapolis. At nearly seven o'clock last evening a tremendous explosion, followed in quick succession by an other shock, rocked and stunned the city like a violent earthquake, with a sudden and awful crash that spread dismay throughout the city. The instinctive apprehension of some aw ful disaster was instantly realized in the portentous spectacle of a huge column of smoke shooting up from the great Washburn flour mill. All the city hurried in the wake of the fire engines to the scene. The great structure, one of the largest flour mills in the world, had been torn to pieces by a terrible explosion of the gases generated in the milling pro cesses, the huge roof had been lifted high in the air, scattering its debris far and wide, and crushing and wrecking the great adjacent mills, while the flames bursting from the wild chaos enveloped the ruins of 5*en great mills. Seventeen persons were burned in the sudden and awful ru in. In a few moments all that mag nificent group of great millswhich were the pride of Minneapolis, were a ruin of shattered masonry, wrapped in fire. The loss of life was at first greatly exaggerated by rumor, but though not a quarter of the number perished at first supposed the list of killed and wounded lends a ghastly gloom of tragedy to the catastrophe.. The property ivhich was annihilated in this sud den and awful disaster, is estimated at 800,000 dollars. Nor was the loss confined only to the lo cality of the explosion. The burn ing debris, shingles and tarred paper were borne on the winds far from the central scene and scattered over all the southern portion of the city, and several calamitous fires resulted. The burning shingles and tarred paper were borne as far as St. Paul in six minutes..af.'er the explosion, which was distinctly heard in two distinct reverberations at St. Paiul, which shook with the vibrations of the shock as if by an earthquake. Many hundreds of men hurried Iby rail and team from St. Paiul to the seene of the conflagration, whose iex tent was indicated, by the vast col umn of lurid smoke and flame which towered above the western horizon. St. Paul responded as speedily as possible to the summons of Minne apolis for aid, and sent her fire en gines as fast as cars could be got to carry ,/^Kthem. It was at, one time thought that the fire department would be unable to stay the conflagration, and that all of southern Minneapolis would be swept away. But happily thfese fears were.not realized. Many in cipient fires were extinguished by individual effort. .The fire depart ment did noble work, and by 11 o' clock the work- of destruction was arrested. Full and graphic particu lars of this great disaster are given this morning hy the PIONEER PRESS. !Thejh^rtfeM.sympathie "ptthe peo ple of St.Paul and of the whole State will be with the stricken families of the dead with the pecuniary vietims of a calamity which has fallen, heavi ly on some of the most enterprising and public-spirited citizens of Min neapolis, and with the fair and flour CHICAGO, I ishinc city some of whose proudest ,V monuments of yesterday are to-day a smouldering ruin. But the*calami ty, though temporarily disastrous, will not arrest the forward march of Minneapolis. No such calamity ever does. In a year or two at farthest the pecuniary losses to individuals will be repaired, and new and per haps greater mills will arise on the ruins of those so suddenly swept away.

A NEW FENIAN RAID. ACTIVE' PREPEEATIONS IN PROGRESS AT BUFFALO FOR AN EXCURSION INTO CANADA IN CASE OF THE OUTBREAK OF WA BETWEEN ENGLAND AND RUSSIA, Special Telegram to the Pioneer Press. BUFFALO, May 5.Much suppres sed excitement exists among the Irish Nationalists, in this city, in regard to the proposed Fenian raid on Canada in event of war between England and Russia. The liveliest activity has prevailed here among skirmishing clubs for the last two weeks, and military preparations are undoubtedly being made. Your cor respondent to-day made an extended inquiry among leaders of contemp lated movement. Your represen. tative ^interviewed the Nationa lists, and is confident that an in vasion is contemplated. Col. John Quinn, who is thoroughly posted in regard to all the preparations, and who was in the Black Rock raid of 1866, states that there are three Irish companies well drill#, offi cered and equipped. They are' on the qui vive, waiting for the open ing of hostilities between Russia and England, and are ready to move at a moment's notice.f||An agent from New York, understood to be James Cassidy, and to have been specially deputed by the managers of the skirmishing fund, has been working among the faithlul in this city, and is said to have left IMPORTANT SECRET ORDERS. The tenor of these instructions could not be ascertained, but they are arousing all the excitement of the Fenian raid of 1866, The pro gramme is to call a meeting of Na tionalists immediately after the de claration of war, and detirmine up on the action to be taken. 1000 western soldiers are notified'so that they can be here in twenty-four hours, while within this county there are 3000 more who will ren dezvous for a raid within three days after orders are issued, Col. Quinn further states that Gen. Burke, formerly of the United States army, and one of the trustees of the skirm ishing fund, has already received applications from veteran officers in this city to be assigned to com mands. No SECRECY IS MAINTAINED in regard to this fact, and Captain Daniel Moran, of the EmmettGuards of this city, is among the applicants with several others. Two of the Irish associations have received their uniforms, are provided with arms, and it is understood that several hundred stands of muskets are to be shipped from New York in a few days. The latter fact has been kept so quiet that the authorities have-^ taken no action as yet. ^Th short dispatch sent by the AssSeiatedPress I that Russia is ready to lend aid to-^ the Irish revolutionists, seems to be well understood, and skirmishera say the blow will be struck when least expected. ^^Buffalo, as before on account of its contiguity to, the Canadian frontier, has evidently been selected as a centre of opera* tions. ..Aa: W .t, M s?\ l- J% .4 r-^r 1 1 i ss~ i "K &&*<*'
