Fears at One Time that the City Would Be Wiped from the Face of the Earth. The lierole Efforts of the Firemen Finally Crowned with ,urcess--The Loss Will Mount into the Millions. TonosTo, Ont., Aug. 3-2 a. m.--Special.i Shortly titter midnight this morning tire was discovered in the sugar refinery situated on the esplanade at the foot of Sherbourne street, and in less than half an hour the place was completely gutted. The materials in-Side caused an immense heat, and, as a strong wind was blowing. the flames and sparks were carried along the whole city front. Along the whole esplanade lumber-yards and wooden elevators and frame boat-houses tand, and these were swiftly consumed. The fire spread rapidly westward, und, though the whole city the br'gade was out at the scene, they were powerless to stop the progress. The sugar refinery, where the lire originated, was erected some five years ago as a izlueose factory, and cost ',59,000. The machinery is very valuable. The factory only began running as a sugar refinery a short time ago. A number or schooners lying at the wharves were consumed. There seemed at one time little hope of saving the water-trout from destruction. Millions of doliars are invested in the property along 1 hich the flames are sweeping, and the hope of i-aving it is only slight, as the wind is carrying the sparks to an immense distance and fanning the sparks into a blaze on buildings a quarter of a mile distant. TILE FLAMES sPREADING. At half-past I the fire had swept everything along tile water-front as far as Church street, over a third of a mile from where it started, colisuming four elevators full of grain, toiler-works, and a number of other factories. The wind has changed from east to east-southeast, and the tire is now being carried up-town. The water pressure is low, and it is feared that nearly half the city will be consumed. Every effort is being made to move the shipping out of the harbor, but the ferry steamers and schooners are all in one another's way, and Orly and the larger steamers Seem unable to move. Tho damage so far cannot be less than a million dollars, as large quantities of lumber have been destroyed. The tire is rapidly moving in the direction of the Grand Trunk freight-sheds at the foot of onge street. and there appears little chalice (it saving them. A RAY oF HopE ToitoNTo, Ont., Aug. 3-2:30 a. m.--LSpccial.1At this hour the tire has reached the foot Of Scott street, destroying in its wake Ilayley's coal-wharf, with 20.000 tons of coal, which is all afire, as well as S. Crane & Co.'s coal-wharf, with lo,000 tons. It is now sweeping towards Yonge Street. but the wind shows some signs of tailing, and for a short space there are no buildings for it to feed on, so that there are some 11pes that it may go no further. Four of the test ferryboats in the city have been consumed, and eight or ten schooners, most of them laden. Among the buildings already burned are those of Saulter, Evans, Heakes, Gunselles & Ilibotson, all boatbuilders; Reid & Co. and Welch & Co., lumber merchants; and Currie, Martin & Co., boilermakers. COMPLETING THE DESTRUCTION. TORONTO, Ont., Aug. 3-4 a. m.--LSpecia1.1 So far ttie tire has been unable to cross the gap between the Scott and Yonge street wharves, but it is completing the destruction on the path it has already traveled. A hurricane has just sprung up from the southeast which threatens to drive the tire across the street to the main part of the city, but the buildings on the Southi Side are burned so nearly to the ground that unless the main part of the city catches fire from sparks it is thouglkt to be safe. It is feared Watchman Worth, of tbecsugar refinery factory, has lost his life, as he has not been seen since the fire started. William McCallum, a seaman of the schooner Annie 31ulvey, is dangerously burned about the head. THE FIRE UNDER CONTROL. TORONTO, Ont., Aug. 3-4:30 8. Mai. The lire is under control now.

A SNAKE TEN FEET LONG AND CARRYING AROUND TWENTY-F1VE OR THIRTY RATTLES. JONESno110, Ga., Aug. 2.LSpecia1.1The people on the line of Fayette and Clayton Counties are in terrible excitement today over the appearance of a monster rattlesnake in that section. A bttle off the McDonough road there lives a man named McJunkin. Last 1!!ght he was called upon by a friend, who sat up late with him, while Mrs. MeJunkin retired. The two men drank quite freely. AVhen the husband retired his companion Was mystified by peculiar noises inside. Striking a light, he went in and found coiled up between the couple a huge rattler. The appearance of the light broke its charm, and, gliding across the body ot the sleeping woman, it crawled under the bed and through an opening ill the floor and out. The reptile was not less than ten feet in length, rusty and scaly, and having between twenty-live and thirty rattles. The settlement turned out this morning with shotguns in pursuit of the reptile. ana at last succeeded in running it into a huge hollow log, where its body was perforated with a hundred bullets. Wonderful stories are being told of other repti.ei by the excited people. A RIVER MI srER,y. A POSSIBLE CLEW TO THE IDENTITY OF THE MURDERED WOMAN WHOSE MUTILATED BODY WAS FOUND IN THE RIVER AT BOSTON. BosTON, Mass., Aug. 2.Specia1.1The detectives are now at work on an old and once discarded clew concerning the murdered woman whose dismembered body was picked up in the Charles River several days ago. It will be remembered that the former steward, McIntyre, of the schooner Oriole, which was lying at a wharf in Boston about the time the murder is supposed to have been committed, said that last spring he laid down an old carpet in the galley. and described the manner in which it was cut to lit the place. He saw the piece of carpet wh:ch was wrapped about the trunk of the body, and declares it corresponded with the carpet in the galley of the schooner. The vessel at the time of the publication of the steward's statement had left this port for Philadelphia. The schooner carried coal and sometimes potatoes and a general freight. The schooner is now in Philadelphia, anctinvestigaHen will be made to ascertain if McIntyre's suspicions were based upon facts. A 1 EW BISHOP. THE RT.-REV.

SAVED BY A FARMER. THE NARROW ESCAPE FROM WRECKING OF A LAKE SHORE & WESTERN EXPRESS TRAIN. MILWAUKEE, Wis., Aug. 3.ISpecial.1The Lake Shore & Western's south-bound express, which arrived in this city at 2:30 this morning. narrowly escaped a serious accident at a point about 170 miles north of Milwaukee by a break in a rail, presumably caused by a freight train which had passed but a short time previous. A piece of the rail nearly one toot in length had been displaced. A farmer by chance passing along the track discovered the break as the express was approaching at a rapid rate, and by waving his coat and hat attracted the attention of the engineer just in time to stop the oncoming train before reaching the break. Trainmen assert that a serious accident was averted. as the express was moving at a high rate of speed and would have been thrown down a steep embankment. THE CHOLERA. FRIGHTFUL RAVAGES OF THE SCOURGE AT MARSEILLESTUE PRESS GAGGED BY THE A UT HO RIT I E S. MARSEILLES, Aug. 2.---tVia Mackay-Bennett Cable to The Tribuned--Cholera is spreading. There were fifty-seven new cases today and fourteen deaths. Over fifty fatal cases have occurred during the last week. The situation is grave, and, though the authorities have endeavored to gag the press. it will be impossible to hide the truth much longer. Last night the Minister of Commerce telt Paris incognito and arrived here this morning. lie at once visited the hospitals and intected quarters with the Prefect. rtringent sanitary measures have been prescribed, but, as usual, the precautions are taken too late. The mischief is done already. THE GOLDEN GATE. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Aug. 1.All the mall that was refused for South and Central American ports by the Pacific Mail steamer Colima yesterday was sent overland to New York and New Orleans, whence it wiii be distributed to its various destinations. A local paper prints a statement that Sarah Althea Hill-Sharon, plaintiff in the celebrated Sharon divorce case, will in a short time begin a lecture tour over the State on the si,bject of the recent decisions of the State Supreme Court. She assigns as a reason for ;,- s departure that she has no more avail?., ,s - to prosecute her suit against ex-Sentis dv? and expects to gain some in the mai ML., -1 MONDA 17, AUGUST 3, 188; AND A FLOOD CAME. Over Five and One-Half Inches of Rainfall in Nineteen HourB in - Chicago. Sewers Too Small to Carry Off This Great QuantityMany Basements Submerged. Growing Corn Benefited but Grain in Shock Injured by the Unusual Downpour. There was a heavy rainfall throughout tbe West yesterday, but Chicago, as was to be expected, easily took first place. Having come to the conclusion that the monotony of pleasant days should be broken by a bit of "Lunnon weather," she had a wet dayand no mistake. The signal-service records, as read at 7:30 p. m., showed a rainfall of 5.58 inches. This is almost unprecedented. The heaviest storm that visited Chicago this spring occurred June 2. From 2 p. at. to 3 of the next morning the rain-gage measured a fall of only 3.44 inches. Yesterday, however, the same amount of rain fell during the interval from 2 p. tie to 7:30 se m. Tao area of low pressure extended from Louisville, Ky., to Grand Haven, Mich. As a usual thing the area of rain occurs in the lower right-hand corner of the area of low pressure, and yesterday was no exception to the general rule. Memphis. Teen.. was well sprinkled, and Louisville and the towns in that region were severely drenched. During the eight hours running from 6 a. m. to p. tn. 3.19 inches of rain fell at Davenport, Ia., and at Dubuque 1.05 inches fell during the same time. At 2 p. in. the suortn-centre was at Springfield. Iii., and up to that hoer the rain-gage marked 2.08 inches. After this time the storm cleared off and no rain fell during the latter part of the day. The East was favored with clear weather during most of the day, with the exception of Boston, on which a severe thunder-storm broke in the afternoon. In Chicago the temperature was very low, the mercury lingering in the sixties. During the earlier hours of the day the wind was steady, reaching a maximum velocity of twenty-seven miles per hour. Toward evening. however, it was broken with ugly gusts and miniature whirls. At this time few attempted to brave the beating wind and the drenching of the rain, and the streets were welt-nigh deserted. The indications are that today will be wet very wet. The rain may cease in the morning, but the probabilitses are that it will fall during the entire day. Reports from the country along the Desplaines River indicate that the stream has run over its banks anti tots worked great damage to crops, farm houses, and perhaps animal life. Great lakes have fornaed in all directions, and the water is pouring in at a terrific rate. The wind blew a brick of a chimney of a four-story building at No. 127 West Kinzie street last evening. It struck Officer Herman Kruger on the back or the bead, knocking him senseless and laying the skull bare tor two and one-half inches. At 1:30 o'clock this morning therein stopped entirely, and there was every reason to believe that the down-pour had ceased, the clouds showing signs of raising, impelled by a good west wind. FLOODED BASHMENTS. During the afternoon reports began to come In to police headquarters of ti oocied basements caused by the water in the sewers hacking up," owing to their overflowing condition. The people who depend on the restaurants for their meals were forced in many instances to dine on cold veal and similar condiments, or cook their food over gas jets in the privacy of their rooms. At Billy Boyle's, in Calhoun place, two feet of Nv ate t put dut the tire in the grates. At the Boston Oyster-House the last man starved ordered ham and eggs, which it is sa d were served by a waiter in a skiff, while two others sat one on each end of the table to keep it from floating away. The place was shut up at 4 oclock. Charles Mar-tells restaurant. at No. 77 North Clark street, and the Albany restaurant, at No. 101 Clark street, have their kitchen.; in the basements. and were forced to serve cold dishes. In several instances fire-engines were telephoned for to pump out the rising flood. At Lyon & Ileals's music store, corner of State and Monroe streets, there were five inches of meter at 4 o'clock, and Engine No. 32 was ordered to duty there. A considerable amount of music stock stored in the basement was damaged. From Lyon & Healy's No. 32 went to Nos. 18 and 20 Van Buren street, where there were eight inches of water. Engine No. 17 dtew the water trom the basement of Itorner Bros.' wholesale grocery store, at the corner of Randolph and Clinton streets. A large amount of the stock was damaged. At No. 30 River street. Madison and Franklin, Dearborn avenue and Indiana street. and Halsted and Fulton streets the basements were all under water. C. P. Kellogg & Co., wholesale clothiers at the corner of Monroe and Market, were flooded, but little damage was done, as their stock is piled On high tables. All along Canalport avenue the storekeepers were busy during the afternoon in moving their goods from the cellars to the floor above, wboe on Huron street a large number ot fatnilies wbo live on a level below the sidewalk were forced to move their household effects Into higher quarters. Stafford & Murphy, liverymen at the corner of Huron and Wells streets, got wet. E. B. Preston, dealer in issubber supplies at No. 417 Filth avenue. would have been a large loser if his stock bad not been impervious to water. D.ckinson Bros., storage men at No. 204 Market street, had three inches of water. Erkhart & Swan. flour dealers at No. 62 West Lake street, bad a large amount of stock damaged. There was six feet of water In both Washington ann La Salle street tunnels. Reports from the outlying police stations say that basements and cellars in the outskirts of the town are under water. Moss & Barr's clothing-store, at Milwaukee and Centre avenues, was flooded. The basement of slid. Cullerton's house, on Twentieth street, near Pauline, had six inches of water in it. On Fall street, near Lake. a large portion of the street fell three or four feet. This was owing to the slovenly manner in which the refilling was done after a sewer had been laid. Dangerous holes appeared on the corner of Curtis and West Indiana streets, and on Wood street, between Chicago avenue and Augusta Street. The basements on East Michigan street, between Clark and the lake, were flooded with from one to three feet of water. Water in the basement of the Columbia Theatre put out the fires under the boilers, and the electric-light machine could not run. The Palmer House basement was Ms invaded by the water, and the furnace fires were extinguished. Chinese laundrymenin every part of the city were forced to get out of their basement quarters, and many ludicrous scenes resulted from their hurried attempt to remove their precious goods to a place of safety. At the residence of H. A. McCaffrey, of the Fire-Alarm Office. No. 59 Judd street, a chimney leading into a fireplace which had been packed during the summer filled with water from the roof. With a loud noise the packing gave way and the water rushed down and through the open fireplace with a deafening roar. It deluged the room and some of the occupants were wet from head to foot. Carpets. picturets, and other furniture were ruined, entailing a loss of over $200. It is presumed that similar incidents were numerous. The water poured into the basement of the Chicago Opera-House Building at the corner of Clark and Washington streets in a perfect flood. The fires were extinguished and the engines and boilers rendered useless. A sub-engine from house No. 14 was ordered to pump the water out at 2 o'clock this morning. Pinkerton's Preventive Watch reported that the sub-cellar in J. V. Farwell & Co.'s building, corner of !Monroe and Market streets, was flooded early in the evening. The steam-pumps in the building were soon set to work and the water prevented from reaching the basement. Considerable damage was done to furniture in stock at Nos. 18 and 20 Van Buren street, occupied by Ketchum & Rotessblid. Early in the evening Charles Ballinger, saloonkeeper at No. 135 Monroe street, put up a sign to the effect that the preponderance of water ovar whisky necessitated the closing of the ". A susuenued over the street was blown from its fastenings and landed against the big plate-glass window belonging to West Bros.' billard parlor at Nos. 157 and 159 Dearborn street. The glass was shvered to atoms. Another window was broken in the same way at No. 158 State street. The watchmen report Chinamen moving out of their quarters in all parts ot the city. especially along Milwaukee avenue. They also say that many cellars where they bad no access are floodel badly, and that the loss will be heavy. INADEQUATE SEWERS. The storm demonstrated the fact that the sewage system of the city is entire:y inadequate to carry off such a quantity of water as fell during the twenty-tour hours. In every case of flooding of baenients it was ent;rely tqwing to the backing up of the water in the sewers and not to an overflow from the street. Had it not been that the rain of the early morning had pretty thoroughly carried off all the accumulated tilth It would have been forced back into the basements by the flood of water. The rain was vo.y efficient In this respect. as was apparent in one basement. where only a handful of dirt had been washed out of a four-inch sewer. The proprietor was congratulating himself upon this fact. "It beats Dr. De Woirs appropriation of $50,000 as a means of purifying the city," be said. THE DAMAGE. it was Impossible last night to learn the extent of the damage, and not until today, when the numerous basements have been opened up and examined. can an estimate be formed of the loss to the occupants. HYDE PARK. The storm in Hyde Park was the severest of the season and caused considerable damage along the shore. The sea ran so high that the waves in mans' places demolished breakwaters and piers.

NEW YORK, Aug. 2.--Special.1--Thousands of people visited the tomb building in Riverside Park today. The masons worked steadily, but with great care. and the brickwork rose Flowly. At 5 o'clock in the evening at was less than tnree feet above the stone walls. The red bricks were interlined with rows of black. The latter were much sought after as relies, and late in the afternoon some of the workmen did a thriving trade in supplying relic-bunters with pteces of brick, for which they paid from a nickel to 25 cents. Many were not satisfied with pieces or brick, and, watching their opportunity, would appropriate a whole one. The park police and the workmen were forced to keep a sharp lookout in keepliag the crowd from getting inside the rope which is stretched around the square of ground in which the tomb is situated. The crowd kept coming and going all day. There were no traps in the stream of people that poured Into and out Of the park. There were seldom more than three or four hundred people in the vicinity of the vault, but the identity of the crowd was changed every fifteen minutes. There were a few persons who spent almost the entire day in the vicinity. On all the thoroughfares leading to this part of the park wooden and canvas booths have sprung up.

Ir..Aug.2.--T Speelal.1 Today Dr. Douglas wrote his first letter since Gen. Grant's death. In it there is such a touching tribute to Gen. Grunt that I have begged it from the doctor for publication. Tbis letter contains a more eloquent tribute to the character of Grant than will be found in the more elaborate and pretentious eulogies. It reads: MOUNT MACGREGOR.. N. Y.. Ana. 2.-3v Dear Ne,ter: This is the first day I have teit able to write tor a long time. I have had a long and trying time, and was on the edge of an abrupt break when the death of my patient ended my vigils. It is three full lin:Mills FineC I had a continuous night's sleep. My timid Wkial dizzy mid my step very faltering. My work la ended, and I have now only to tollow to the grave the man I loved and to whom I have devoted my life these many months. I could not cure him. but I could, by close and continuous care, alleviate his snderings and possibly prolong his life. That. I think. I have done. I am contented. I go from here Tuesday with ail teat remains of my patient and friend. and expeet tkb keep close to bun until he is depotited his tomb. Nine months of close attraction to bias have only endeared him to me. I have learned to know him as few only can know him. The world can know him as a great General, as a successtul politielan. but I kuow him as a patient. self-sacrincing. gentle. quiet, uncmplaining sufferer. looking death calmly in tne lace, and canting almost the boors he had to live. and th'Ise hours were etudied by him that he might contribute something ot benebt to some other fellow-sufferer.
