May 0.—Forest fires are raging with terrible fierceness all through northern Wisconsin and Michigan. Railroad beds are being damaged to a great extent and frequently pns- senger trains must pass through a perfect cavern of flames to make any progress. Many towns about here have been threatened with destruction and the whole population brought out to make a desperate fight for their homes. All ore traffic on the Wisconsin Central road over its branch into the iron ore regions of the Gogebic range has been stopped. One of the largest bridges along the line was burned Friday afternoon. Settlers in the woods are flocking to the nearest villages and cities' for protection, their homes in the forests having been consumed by the flames. The scene at night in every direction is appalling. The smoke from the fire has caused considerable difficulty at Ashland. The hot, smoky atmosphere makes it almost impossible at times to see 75 feet ahead. No reports of loss of life have been made as yet. The woods along- the Omaha road are a mass of flames. The Northwestern road lost several hundred cords of wood here and the Ashland Iron & Steel Company lost 50,000 cords at High Bridge. BAYFIEI.B, Wis., May 9.—Forest fires are burning in the second gro.wth near here to an alarming extent. Trains on the Omaha are delayed at Drutumond on account of burning bridges. Wires 1 are down in many places. No valuable timber is reported burning, bat grave fears are entertained for many of the towns in this county. The air is dense with smoke and the wind is from the direction of the fire, southwest. WASHBURX, Wis., May 9. — Seven thousand cedar paving blocks and 1,000 posts at Ashland Junction were destroyed by fire. The forests are all on fire here. George Eobinson and wife, living at Wyman Crossing, were burned out of everything and barely escaped with their lives.

DUT.GTH, .Minn., May 9.—Forest fires have been raging in the vicmi'ty of Duluth for several days and the city has- been enveloped in smoke. News has! reached here frocr. the suburban town sites of St. Louis and New Duluth that the latter sustained a good deal of damage and the former was completely destroyed by the fire. .It is supposed that the fire orignatecl southwest of St. Louis and was swept northward by a stiff breeze. It is also reported that a man named McM'anus, iriving a yoke of oxen, was caught by ;he fire and burned to death, together with his team. The fire crossed the St. Louis river, near Fond du Lac, but Sew^Duluth was saved from destruction *b0a hard fight. -. • ST. PAUL, Minn.,, May 9.—Beports Irpm a dozen Minnesota and Wiscousiu poTSfts" InHicate that forest' fires are burning over a very wide area, and a tremendous wind has fannned the flames into a, fury. A telegram from Hinckley says that thousands of feet of pine are being destroyed in Pine county. In Carlton county the timber has been on fire all day, and the smoke from it lias been almost stifling. It is feared some lives were lost among settlers in the woods, though no definite reports have been received. The forests are also on fire along the Mississippi in Itasca county. Over the border in Wisconsin citizens have been fighting fire for hours, and so far have kept the fiend out of the villages. The forests are all in flames 'or miles along the Omahii line and in several places along the Wisconsin Central. Northwestern Minnesota reports state that a heavy rain is falling at Crookston, Warren and Hallock, and the storm will probably move eastward and extinguish the flames. AMONG^THE MORMONS. Just Received President. Harrison Heartily Greeted at Salt Lake City. SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, May 9.— Beautiful springlike weather made the short visit of the president to Salt Lake City a pleasant one. The presidential train arrived at 3 o'clock a. m. and was sidetracked until 7 o'clock, when Gov. Thomas, Mayor Scott, Congressional Delegate Cain and a large reception committee called with carriages and escorted the party to the Walker house. Grand army men and confederate veterans, headed by a band, formed the escort from the railway station. A large number of people were on the streets and the president was heartily cheered at many points along the route. After breakfast the president was escorted through the principal streets of the city by United States troops, the local militia, former citizens of Indiana and voters for William Henry Harrison, fire companies and trade organizations. The streets were crowded and much enthusiasm was shown. The decoration: of buildings along the line of inarch was general, among the places made conspicuous by a profitsion of bunting being the temple and President \Vt>9d- ruff s house. A large strip of bunting- bearing the words: "Fear God; honor the president," was displayed from the temple. * The houses occupied by Brigham. Young's wives were decorated with bunting. On Brigham street the school children of the city, nearly 5,000 in cumber, were concentrated, and they greeted the president by waving flags and scattering flowers. It was a beautiful sight, and the president seemed touchedj^s he passed the long lines of little ones. The children sang "America" and "Hail Columbia," the president acknowledging the compliment by keeping his head bared until his carriage had passed the end of the line. Public exercises took place at Liberty park and were witnessed by several thousand people. Gov. Thomas made the address of •welcome on behalf of the territory, and Mayor Scott followed for the municipal government of Salt Lake City. To the complimentary expressions of these gentlemen the president made a speech of thanks, which was frequently interrupted by applause. This concluded the exercises and the party was driven to the train by a circuitous route to enable the members to see places of interest. At noon the train left Salt Lake over the Denver & Rio Grande road. For the first time in its history the tabernacle floated the stars and stripes from its roof, and its congregation had gone farther in its endeavor to honor .the president by arranging for a trained chorus to sing patriotic airs during the presence of the distinguished visitor within the building. Six thousand people, most of whom were school children, assembled in the tabernacle and waited an hour for the appearance of the president, but his time was too limited. THE Y. M. C.
