Flames Break Out Afresh After
Smouldering for Weeks and
Destroy More Hay.
The fire that started sevuial weeks
ogo and resulted In burning over a
big area of territory on the south
border of Malheur lake, destroying
I uiueh hn and pasture nnd also eon-
sumlug xpvurnl ranch houses and
burns, has broken out again this
week and done moro damage.
The exceedingly dry noasoii Ib re
sponsible for thn lake not filling up
as Is iMtial' in ordinary years, thus
leaving the peat soil very dry and It
Is almost Impossible to put out a
fire when onco started without flood-
lug and this Is Impossible this sea-
sou Tim original flro in reported to
have been of Incendiary origin by
some spiteful person nnd It has prov -
en disastrous to many rancher hor
derlng thu lake as It hns not only
dlstroyed much hay that Is needed
for next winter, hut also burned tho
soil to such an extent that It is
worthless for an ludutlnltu time.
From Information received yester
day It Is found tho flro has covered
an area of at leant twenty miles one
way by eight thu other. It has been
subdued In thu vicinity of Narrows
but han spread east toward Lawen
and has rousumed much hay and
threatens more, although tho sltua-
tlon Is reported better at tho tlmu
this Is written Friday. There aro u
number of mben now flghtlu,; flro

I Pacific Live Stock Co. has placed a
targe number of men in the Swan
lake section and with favorable
weather renditions It Is hoped to
i.uhdtie the flariiH and keep the flro
within bounds. However, should n
high wind again prevail It Is likely
to spread over a great nren and do
much damage.
Just last wool; two rancher stock
men of tho lake neighborhood nro
reported to havo said they were
