PACT., Sept. 8.—Six towns wiped out and more than 500 dead Is the record made by the forest fires in this state during Saturday night and Sunday, In Hinckley, Sandstone, Pokegatna, Sand•tone Junction) Skunk Lake and Mission Creek there are 36ft known dead. In addition several hundred are missing, while from 150 to 2(X> were scattered on farms throughout the district burned over. The destruction was complete in most of the towns named, but some of of the forest land escaped. The loss, however, will be in the millions and the loss of life will not be definitely known for several days, if ever. Governor Nelson, Mayor Smith of St. Paul and Mayor Eustis of Minneapolis have all issued proclamations calling on the people for help. Anything In the line of provisions, clothing or money Will be very acceptable. All the churches in the city and relief societies have been throwing open their doors for contributions and many responses have been received. A special to the Pioneer Press from Pine City, Minn., says: Estimate of the dead—Hinckley, 200; Sandstone, 48; Sandstone Junction, 25; Pokegama, 85; Skunk lake, 89; miscellaneous, XO; total, 855. ttat of Dead.

The fire struck Hinckley on (ho east ride of the Duluth track, and the bravo fir* fighters for the first time gave up the unequal battle, and already to late, in many instances, turned their attention to their personal safety. The Eastern Minnesota train from the south had just come in and the people of tho panic stricken city flocked to it for aafety, A number of box can were coupled on and filled and covered with men, women and children. Some were bareheaded, some were ooatltos, some few clutched a pitiful bundle of the more precious of their portable possessions. Families were separated. In all there was a uiotloy 'crowd of about 450 or moro people. The train pulled out just ahead of the fire and guccftfcded in ultimately reaching Duluth. This circumstance, while fortunate In a degree that cannot be estimated, hw mode the confusion greater, for it is not known who escaped in this way, aud inuny people ore reported dead who may be in safety. Bad not thin number of people, largely woiueii and children, left the doomed city when they did, the loss of life would have increased In a geometrical ratio, for their presence Would cave aided Immeasurably to tho •ubfequent confusion. Tlw Truck Oar* Way. About the name time the accommodation on the Hiiiokloy and St. Cloud branch left for the latter place with about 8(1 pa«i«ugeri.

Egress by the only means of trans- twit n tion that could hope to distance the swiftly advancing flames was out of the question. The men had been fighting the fire for hours, and the women and Children were in a panic stricken condl' tion. Horses were harnessed to buggies and wagons, Women and children were huttiecUy loaded, Probably 2W of tfeeta left town on foot or in vehicles, plunging into the woods north across thi Grindstone river, which skirts the town on the north. They were literally fleeing bijfore the pursuing demon. OVel the hill that rises beyond the Chwidstotie is a swamp, and to this moat of the people with teams headed, bat it proved BIO protection, The fire gave them no opportunity to go further, Spme- abandoned their teams find ran into the lowei portions of the morass, but the fire sought them out, No one was left to tell the tale, and there, In a space of a little more than five aoren, Were Counted over 180 corpses. There were many families of five, six and seven, and there they lay, the men generally w Advance, the mother surrounded by her little ones, cut off by the most horrible of deaths. Those who fled to the north on foot followed-the Duluth track and so rapid was the progress of the flames that many of them were actually burned as they fled, falling on the right of way for a distance of three miles or more. Nearly UObodies were recovered along here, Peopla Who Remained P«»d Beit, The people who remained in Hinckley fared the best of all. The Eastern Minnesota tracks mark the eastern edge of the city proper. Just beyond the road was a tract of land probably embracing at least ten acres. The whole area had fapen excavated to a depth of 8t) or 40 feet and in its center was a stagnant pool of rain water, three feet deep. To it fled a hundred citizens who were willing to trust to its friendly depths. They remained four hours, while the smoke and flames rolled over their heads. They dashed water over each other and covered their heads with wet cloths to prevent suffocation and all were saved. Others of the citizens sought refuge in the Grindstone river under the abutments of the two railway bridges and at the foot bridge. The exact number cannot be known. That many escaped and some were drowned is known. In the meantime Hinckley was burning with the utmost conceivable rapidity, and in a -few hours nothing was left but blackened ruins. The total loss to the city will exceed |1,OUO,000, with a com'- parativoly light insurance. The situation at Sandstone is even more appalling than at Hinckley, except in point of numbers. Of the 300 residents, one-fourth are dead. Destitute of Everything, Otto Stafferfeldt, of Sandstone, talking of the disaster, said that Saturday night about 5:90 flames neared the town and the people prepared to leave. The wind blew like a hurricane, and as the people -wore getting ready to leave, the fire closed in on three sides. Not a alugta irorson saved anything except Dls clothes. About IbO went to the river and M) or 00 were burned to death. At 4 o'clock Sunday morning he saw over 47 bodies charred and burned, lying on every side. The people are destitute of everything. In addition to 47 bodies at Sandstone there are 20 at Kettle river junction. All the settlers in the vicinity are probably burned to death. There are about 11 homeless families still at Mission Creek, but they have provisions for about 24 hours. Brook Park, two miles west of Hinckley, is burned and there are about 1 people there, many of whom are in need of immediate relief, H»raUm ot th« Trainmen. From the storiea of passengers on the limited train which burned at Hinckley, tho entire train crew deserve to be placed on the roll of honor for personal heroism. Engineer James Root of White Bear hands the list. He was badly burned . and almost blinded and fell from his seat unconscious immediately on getting through the fires. When about two mi IDS north of Hmck- ley / Boot first discovered the fires, which had been raging on both sides of the track, were racing him for his life aud tho lives of his passengers. At first he thought to outrun the flames, which woru coming after ami bearing down upon him at a 00-mile gait. Wlum about a milo ttnd a half from Hinckley ho discovered tho firo was too fast aud overtook the tralu and overleaped it so it was literally surrounded with flume*. The air was stifling and the clothe, of both engineer and fireman caught fire. Fireman McQowan leaped into tho water tank, and then voicing a bucket, da»bod the water several times over tho burning engineer, Root steadily kept at hit pott, although scarcely able to sit upright, ' fauouger* Hooam* Panto Stricken.

Nothing furtbet has yet been received from Mlllacn and, how much may have been the suffering cannot at this time bo known. Bridgemnn was apparently safe aftet a hard fight. The flames, however, Were very threatening around that town and as it> is vory tlry over that part ot the state, the worst is feared. The part; that came through the fires around Hickley on the handcar suffered severely from burning. Their injuries, however, will not prove fatal, They tell many sad stories of what they saw. Ont woman had evidently tried to save her five children and was overtaken by the fierce flames and the whole family perished close to the railroad track. Another case was where a mother seeing her home in flames, ran to save het child, her husband following her and the walla of the bouse caved in before they could get out. A private dispatch received from the burnt district states positively that M50 dead bodies have already been recovered so the estimate made above may be considered as decidedly conservative, The losses in the neighborhood of St. Cloud, which is on the western edge ot the fires are estimated at f 300.UOO and from that point east and north, nearly everything is burning, The fires are raging in Becker and Altken counties, where many farm houses and much grain have been lost as well as timber. SEEKING MISSINQ_ LOVED ONES. Torture anil Deipalr li Driving Some People Oat of Their Seaief. PINK CITY, Minn., Sept. 3.— Pine City has turned the skating rink and court house, as well as many private bouses, into hospitals, where SO sufferers are receiving medical attention and careful nursing. Whichever way the eye turns heartrending scenes are witnessed. The hospitals and streets are thronged with people seeking their missing loved ones! As soon as each train comes in from the north there is a frenzied rush of inquirers. Few families are complete and the torture of anxiety and despair is driving some people out of their senses. A man going insane, a patient groaning life away, a woman giving premature birth, a heap of cinders representing a human form — these are a few ot the incidents of the great forest fire of 1894. No trains are running west of Hinckley and it is impossible to get accurate information. Carleton, Rutledge, Shell Lake and other towns in the north are reported burned to the ground. West of Pine City a fearful fire is blazing and sweeping everything before it. Sunday afternoon this fire was at least 13 miles square, but as the wind has gone down considerably it is hoped its course will be checked. There are fires north of Snake river, also in a heavy timber section, which is sparsely settled. ~ 'As for I6ss or properly it is impossible to make even an approximation. Tho cleanout has been so complete that many people have no ambition to rebuild and .will scatter to all parts of the country. _ • HlMlon Creek Wiped Oat. MISSION CREEK, Minn., Sept. 3. — The little settlement at Mission Creek, peopled largely by the employes of the old John Martin mil), were wiped off the face of the earth almost as Hinckley was. There was perhaps a half million feet of lumber burned here. The total population of the place was between 40 and 00. Over on the west side of the railroad track, fortunately, stood an old log house, in the center of a large potato patch. The women and children were all huddled into this solid old structure aud tho men remained outside to fighl away the fire.

ABO OT TWO HinfDBED DELEGATES, Canadttt Russia and Several European Countries Repi-egented—George Q. Cannon of Wtnlt For Temporary Chairman. Colorado Delegates Stirred Up Over Secretary Morton's tetter. DENVER, Sept. 4.—The third national irrigation congress convened at the Broadway theater Monday. There were about 200 delegates in attendance, representing 37 western states and territories. Representatives are present from Canada, ssia and several European countries, Don J. Ramond Jooral presented credentials as the personal representative of President Diaz of Mexico. The United States government is represented by H. Newell, Arthur P. Davis and Morris Bean of the general land office and geological survey. Object of the Conrentlon. The first object of the convention will be the formulation of a bill to be presented to tho next congress regarding the reclamation of the arid lands of the west. After this will come the question whether or not the meeting shall indorse the recent action of congress in ceding 1,000,000 acres of arid lands to each arid land state and territory on the western proposition to have the government reclaim these lands. Colorado will oppose this plan on the grounds that the western states and territories have not the money to develop these lands after they come in possession of them. The congress was called to order by National President W. E. Smythe, who delivered his annual address. He said: For nearly 300 years humanity has Bought to realize on this continent its long dream of independence and equality. Religious independence, born of the perils and hardships of Plymouth bay, we inherit from tho Puritan.. Political independence we won with the sword in a 7-years' war, we inherit from the revolutionary patriot. And yet, with two such precious legacies—freedom of conscience and popular sovereignty—the closing hour* of the 10th century records the startling fact thnt only 5 per cent of the American people own the laud on which they dwell. Periods of depression Inevitably succeed periods of prosperity. Is it any wonder that with the ebb of industrial tide men grow sullen and the women heartsick? Is it any wonder that the fruit of hard winters is a crop of idle, wandering menf Is it any wonder that a great employer of labor, who 'holds dividends more precious than humanity, cqn starve his workmen into submission f The peace mid prcmpnrity of this nation depends upon whether there is sufficient wisdom and patriotism in. this body, and in public life of tho United States to add to the legacy of puritan and patriot tho realization of industrial independence. For, after all, the quality of independence that conies nearest to each man's hearthstone is independence in •. the ability to protect those whom he loves, Capability at Woiteru America. Estimates differ caucernlug the precise capability of western America, but the most critical economist among all our students of water and laud concedes that we can sustain, under a proper system of irrigation, as many people as now live within the boundaries of the United States. Founding our fivith on this ton- servative authority, we send to the people of this troubled nation the message: "We are coming, Father Abraham, with homes for 70,000,000 more—homes where Irrigation shall guarantee industrial independence and the small farm units the quality of men." Another message we send to our conn trymen: "That we nsaenibla here, not at clti/BtiH of western states, in a spirit ol narrow twotlonalism. We assemble as citizens of a continental republic, whose past iiml whose future, whose traditions and wliosu (utptrntlatis, we proudly share. We seek to organize prosperity for our common country anil to give new luster to our American name." l>i<)i>ff»iu» Welcomed to Colorado. Governor Waite, who has gone to tho Populist state convention at Pueblo, welcomed the delegates to the state through his private secretary, M. Lorenz, Mayor Van Horn and President Dyers of the chamber of commerce welcomed them to the city. Ex-Oovornor Prinoa of New Mexico introduced a resolution giving every person who had coino to this convention a right to purtioi pato regardless of the representation fixed by the Los Angeles con grew. After considerable discussion tho resolution was referred to the committee on credentials. George Q. Cannon of Salt Lake City was unanimously chosen temporary chairman. The'committee on credentials was then appointed and a recess taken uutil U o'clock. On reassembling tho committee on credentials submitted a resolution, which was adopted, to the effect that each state aud territory represented be entitled to iU full vote, and that all persons ap pointed by any authority bo permitted a voice in determining bow the vote of hU utttto or territory shall bo oust. Committees on permanent orgaaiiatloo, resolutions, rules and order of biuines*, each ooiwiatiiuj of one delegate from each state and territory, was the ueit bunt' ueas transacted.

Mr. Dennis of Canada aeked that Canada be included in the resolution. It was agreed to. ( In the evening reports from the several state commissioners were heard to the exclusion of any otber business. Denver Delegates Stirred Cp, The Denver delegates were stirred Up tty the receipt of the following letter from 3. Sterling Morton, secretary of agriculture, in which he paid his respects to the convention as follows 1 . "The questions considered by these irrigation conventions have nothing to do with practical irrigation. They amount simply to the coining together of a body of citizens for the purpose of petitioning congress for grants of lands and acession of whatever control or ownership the general government may have of the waters of the arid region," A (Jelfigate objected to the words of Mr. Morton as an insult to the convention and moved that the document be returned to Washington. J. E. Lent appeared in the role of peacemaker and the letter was placed on file. COLORADO DEMOCRATS JUBILANT. Two Factions of the Party Bnried the Hatchet and Named a Ticket. DENVER, Sept, 4.—The two factions of the Democratic party, both holding state conventions here Monday, appointed conference committees. These committees drew up a platform and nominated a full state ticket which satisfied both factions. The party now stands tnited for the following ticket: Justice supreme court, Vincent D. Markham, Arapahoe county; governor, C. 8. Thomas, Arapahoe; lieutenant governor, F. J. Weston, Pueblo; secretary of state, Dr. J. Ernest Meyer, Lake; auditor, J. S. Swan, Oarfield; treasurer, C. Barela, Las Animas; attorney general; J. M. Branson, El Paao; superintendent of public instruction, Mary C. C, Bradford, Arapahoe; regents state university, F. E. Wheeler, Mineral; Mary B. Macon, Arapahoe. The platform and ticket were presented to the two factions in joint session and adopted, after which the double convention adjourned. Democrats are jubilant now that the ''hatchet is buried and an active campaign will be made. The platform is out and out for silver, but has nothing to say about President Cleveland or his administration. Commander Bumly's Stiff. UiucnniATi, Sept. 4.—Commander-in- chief W. A.
