(By .Staff Correspondent) Aledo. 111., Sept 21.-Flre, the flpigitt" of which is -thought to have been in a rubbish heap at the west end of a poultry barn at the Mercer county fair grounds, yesterday de stroyed thousands of dollars' worth of fair buildings, including hog barns and cattle and poultry sheds, besides a number of dining halls and 30 head of sheep and one prize winning hog. r The financial loss from the fire. burned out within two hours, was estimated at about $15,000 with tbe loss of the livestock. The fair as sociation faces a loss within the buildings .of about 210,000, as re-' ported by Secretary E. C. McFar land. The loss of the sheep, which were owned by M. T. Warwick, will approximate S4.000. - The hog,. Pan ma Orion, The King, a prize win ning 3-year-old Duroc boar, owned by I. F. Gillmor, is placed at about $1,500. Flames Spread Fast Witnesses of the fire state that when flr.st discovered, it had hardly gotten a good, start, but with the long draft through the buildings and the high wind, which was blow ing from the southwest, the flames were fanned through the struc tures at great speed. Floral hall, tn the center of the grounds, and the Administration building, direct ly east it Floral hall, together with a long string of horse barns north of these buildings, were saved through tbe efficient work of the Aledo fire department The alarm sounded at about 1:42:00 o'clock, and a run of almost two miles was necessary to reach the grounds. The fire fighters arrived on the scene- too late to save the buildings, which were in flames, but .they managed to put out small blazes on the roof of the Floral hall. All the buildings were dry as tinder and so constructed that a draft of great proportion swept through them. . City Water Great Aidm The presence of chemical extin guishers and city water on the fair grounds is responsible for the sav Ing of, the buildings which were not burned. The horse barns are the largest buildings on the ground and had they been burned would have been the largest loss. With the loss of . bis herd of sheen. Mr. Warwick faces more than a mere financial setback.' The sheep were of the prize winning variety and had taken many rib bons at this and other fairs. Mr. Warwick was preparing to remove them to the Nebraska state fair and bad already taken one truck load from the grounds. The loss of tbe sheep Is thought to have been covered by insurance, but Mr. Gill mor's hog was not insured. The Mercer county fair, which closed last Saturday, with a record of the largest attendance in Its history, will undoubtedly open next falt-wit ha complete set of live stock buildings to replace those which were burned yesterday. Gen eral Superintendent Guy VanAtta and Secretary McFarUnd are al ready at work with a crew of men, cleaning up the debris after tbe fire.'-,- ' '; vl IJ. 8.

"So wide if. the dissatisfaction with tbe present administration," he said, "so great the hostility to many acts of the president, and, so acute the . Justifiable fear of 'the metamorphosis of our foreign pol icy, that apparently nothing-can prevent overwhelming Republican success in the November election." The senator declared, "that for the first. time in our lives the Demo cratic administration tanght us what repression, and suppression were," that free speech had been threatened and a free' press endan gered. . v - - The senator then attacked the administration on .'the League of Nations issue. - "Under the specious guise of League of Nations to promote peace and prevent war, we were to be in extricably bound hereafter to every future world war," he continued. "Upon the League of Nations the issue' is clean cut The language of the two candidates is plain and unambiguous. Mr. Cox says that if he ,1s successful, he will go in.
