Tiik forest Hies which have been rag
ing in the Northwest during tlie past
two months were not so serious after
all. The fires were mainly in tlie slash
ing', where tops and limbs had been
left by the loggers, nowever, many
thousands of the trees were badly
charred and considerable property des
troyed, and something should be done
to prevent a repetition of the fires. Log
gers and settlers should burn thoir
slashing in the spring, when there is
little danger of tires spreading. Eastern
Washington and Idaho suffered more
than other sections, the fires there being
set by campers and hunters.

Li Hung Chang is the viceroy of the
Chinese empire, and a self-made man.
It is not surprising that he has accumu
lated so much wealth to any one who
has heard of the corruption of the .
Chinese government and the opport
unity possessed by the high oliiciuls for
robbing tlie people.
It will been that John D. Rockefeller
is classified as the second richest man in
the world. His fortune is placed at
$180,000,000. What is remarkable about
this is tho fact that Rockefeller started
in life as a poor boy only about a quarter
of a century ago. He began in business
as an oil broker, and after wurd organized
an oil refining ompany, which is now
the Standard Oil Company, in which he
made most of his money . He is very
benevolent man ; lie has given about $4,
000,000 to tlie Chicago university, and
also large donations to various churches
and charitable institutions. He is tlie
man against whom one of the Duluth
Merritts recently recovered 1 verdict for
about fl.OOO.Ouu. If the verdict sticks,
it will be soon that Merritt will have no
trouble in collecting it.
The Duke of Westminster inherited
his wealth. It consists of urouerty
located mostly in tlie city of London, and
which, when bought by his ancestors,
wos sn out-lying furin. Colonel North
is an Englishman, who did not learn to
read and write until after he was 14
years old. He made his money in the
Peruvian nitrate beds. Cornelius
Vanderbilt inherited large wealth, which
he has largely increased. Woh Gua is
a great Canton tea merchant.
The World does not place the Astors
in the list, nor George Gould . Somo of
the Astors and George Gould must be
nearly as wealths as Cornelius Vander
bilt. Ttien it would seem as if some of
