PASSENGER FARES REDUCED.
One of the benefits derived from
the visit of President Hurrimau of the
S. P. Co. to Oregon is the announce
ment made that passenger fares 011 the
railroads operated by the company in
Oregon which have heretofore been
at the rate of 4 cents a mile will bt
reduced to 8 cents T 1 he announce
ment Was made by the railroad presi
dent to tho newspapers when he said:
We shall reduce sseuger fures on
all our lines in Oregon to 8 cents a
mile. This will be done just as soon
as tlie machinery of our traffic depurt-
ment can work, tomorrow for aught
I know. This matter was bronght up
to me on this visit here and the docis
ion to reduce rates has just been
The O. K. & N. Co. reduced its
rates something more than a year ago,
at the time when the Northern Pacific
took the same action, so this decision
of Mr. Hurrimau affects rates on the
Southern Paciiflc's Oregon lines only,
where fares are now 4 rents a mile.

A TREMEMDOUS BLAZE.
S. P. D. & L. Co. and Williams Bros.
Factories and Lumlier Yurds
Destroyed by Fire.
About 5 o'clock Motiday evening the
alarm was sounded for what proved
to be one of tho town's most destruc
tive and sensational fires, as the en
tire factory plant and the contents of
the lumber yards of tho S. P. D. &
L. Co. and Williams Bros.' factories,
four dwelling houses and numerous
small buildings were consumed, and
weut up in smoke iu an incredibly
Throughout the afternoon a brisk
wind was blowing from the south
west. A refuse pile of sawdust nnd
shavings was burning at what was
supixised to bo a safe distance from
the lumber piles,. The wind blew
the burning sawdust across the inter
vening space, crossing tho railroad
truck and igniting shavings and splin
ters at tho edge of tho lumlier yard.
By the time the men in the lumber
yard were alarmed and reached the
scene, the tiro was list control.
The factory whistle then sounded the
alarm, but by tho time the tire com
pany reuched the flro it hail gone past
all hope of management.
Once gaining a hold iu the piles of
dry lumber with the strong wind to
augment it, the fire spread like a fau.
It looked for a time us though the fac
tory might be saved as the wind was
uot directly iu its direction. Heroic
efforts were made to cut the lire off
from the factory, but to 110 purpose.
Several of the firemen were overcome
by heat at this iniiiit when a gust of
wind blew the heat and (lames from
one of the blazing piles directly into
tho faces of tho foremost. George
Hartmuti fell unconscious mid was
rescued with difficulty. The heat
from the burning lumber quickly Ihi
cuiiio so intense that it was iiiiKssible
to get anywhere near the lire. All
then realized that the factories were
doomed and that efforts to save them
were useless. Tho workers then turn
ed their uttcution to the threatened
When the flro reached the S. P. I).
& L. factory it fairly burst into
(lame. Filled with iutlamnmlile mat
ter and already healed almost to the
point of ignition, it was a roaring
muss of flames ill 11 few seconds.
Williams Bros.' factory and the
siuull dwellings just north of it were
consumed iu a few minutes iu the
tremendous heat from tho larger fac
tory. The residence of C. L Edger
tou and three small dwellings Is'loug
ing to Giles Davis were consumed,
hardly a vest iago of lliem remaining.
Most of the movables were carried
awny before tho flro reached them.
The A'sidcnces just eust of the fac
tories were saved bv persistant wet-
ing down with small huso mid by
bucket brigades iu the terrillc heat
until the big hose was brought to
beur on them. Lively work was done
to save the residences of G. H. Parker
and O. P. Harvey ut the north edge
of the liimlsr yard. At one time
their destruction seemed certain, but.
tho wind shifted in the nick of time
and bucket brigades hold the lire at
the alley until a division of the fire
couiiny arrived 011 the sceuu Willi
the hose. By hard work, the lire was
becked at this Kiiut. Nearly all the
residents of this part of town emptied
their houses and in many cases the
belongings were scattered far and
wide, so that the loss in breakage and
misplacement is considerable. The
burned district covers about ID acres
and most of this Mas covered with
dies of lumber. These burned bril
liantly till far into the night and
large crowds gathered In the evening
to witness the Klicctuctilnr sight.
All through the night the tire whirl-
winds kept forming, scattering simrks
and danger to the m ar by dwellings,
making constant watch a necessity.
The next day the burned ana pre
sented a desolate apM'arnnce, the
greater portion of it being swept bare
us a floor, not even iinhcs remaining.
All that remained of the factories
were a few brick and a pile uf wrap

a light engine in charge of Engineer
lilggs came in collision with the
south-liouiid through freight at a curve
a short distance this sido of Tunnel
'.I. Mr. Rigg saw tho freight just in
time to stop his engine but not soon
enough to get t reversed before the
shock came. Engineer Sampson, 011
the helisr of the freight, could do
nothing to avert tho collision, which,
owing to the fact that tho freight was
running very slowly resulted only in
damaging the two engines. Tho train
crew cscuiKil uninjured except for
somo bruises and scratches. It seems
remarkable that theru were 110 fatal
ities in u wreck of this kind. The
