FIRE FIENDS AT PENDLETON
MEN WEKE BURNED ALIVE
The Tranafere Hotel and Surround
ing Buildings. Fifteen Thou
Wednesday night of last week at
Peudleton, Ore consumed tbe Trausfer
hotel, and several adjoining buildings
on Main street, one block from the
Oregon Railway A Navigation depot
The loss is about $13000; the inauraisoe
half that amount. Four bodies bave
been recovered from tbe ruius, and
one man besides is still miosing.
Frank Brediug and Old Wolf, an In
dian, were two of (lpse recovered.
The others nilssiug areO. Clacking,
William Btrennnen and i. D. Taylor.
It is thought the fifth body may be
found. The Are originated on tbe up
per floor of tbe Transfer house, when
a man dropped a match near some
gasoline. There were twenty-nine
gueata. The family of the hindjord,
consisted of aix'pernons.
Later There are . many reasons to
think someone was murdered before
lire was set U the Trausfer house, and
that the tbe hotel was burned to wipe
out the evidence of guilt. A woman
who was carried ojt duringthe fire
said the saw a man lylug in a pool of
blood. The story was at Oral discred
ited, but now It is again beinr made
the subject of Inquiry, and tbe opinion
is general that she was right, and
there is much evidence to prove tbe
statement is true.. Officers are making
a quiet search, and are neglecting no
tneaut that may lead to feiretlng out
tbe flejidawboarejespouslWe for this
terrible -calamity. . -.

and several years ago was agent here
for the Singer Sewing Macbiue com
pany. He was well known at Se
attle ud Portland. Hit body floated
ou ing to a peculiar cause. Hi tongue
was held nnniy tieiuee'i nia teetn,
keeping the air iu his lungs and rend

A Pire at Lockport
LOCKPORT, III., Aug. 10. -The
business portion of this place was com
plealely destroyed hy fire today, ui
taillng a loss of 200,000, or which
unotit one-half or two-thirds is cover
ti by Insurance. The fire started in
tbe roof of a building owned by J. 8.
McDonald, where some tinners were
at work, and set a portion of the roof
on fire. Tbe mei tried to put out tbe
llami a with blankets snd coats, and In
t tew nilniites they were glad to let It
done and ' run for their lives. The
town has no fire protection. Tbe
names fanned by a strong wind, swept
ihe buildings and carried evertbing
in their path. Two engine companies
were sent from Chicago, one from Jol
iet and one from Latnout. The lire
had eaten tip -most of the buslines
portion when the engines arrived, but
was extinguished In an hour after
ward . Part of the town hall and post
office was destroyed Including the
records. Lockport Is in Will county,
on tbe big drainage canal, about thirty
two miles southeast from Chicago and
has a population of about 2000. It con.
