Chicago, July 14.
A ereat Are Is raging In South
Chicago, about tLe vicinity of Mich
igan avenue and Twelfth street.
Haifa mile of buildings are now in
'flames, and all efforts of the fire
men thus far are futile to check its
progress. Buildings are being
blown up, and the whole force of
the fire-department are on the spot,
with every means available for
fighting the fire. The streets are
jammed with teams, moving goods
from the place.
The fire started at 4:30 this after
noon; on Fourth avenue, near
Twelfth street, in South Chicago. It
ran north and northeast, through
Fourth avenue, Third avenue, Slate
street, two blocks on Wabash av
enue, and a large number of bouses
on the eastern portion of the street.
It took the postonlce, several line
churches, and a large number of
blocks, the number of which is not
At half past G o'clock the fire had
made almost a clean sweep up to
the corner of Third avenue and
Folk street, burning up the homes
of thousands of people at the above
The fire department commenced
the process of blowing up buildings
with gun-pewder, but the buildings
experimented with were but small,
wooden affairs, and would only
have the effect of making a quicker
blaze of them, and the wind blow

The fire is now on the verge of
the fire line of our big fire at Har
rison street tiie west side of Wa
bash avenue is now in full blaze,
which takes many a stately building
in its course, which offered a haven
of refuge in 1871.
The. tire is just now in the rear of
the First JJaptjst Church, and
should that structurp go down,
the firp will have a clear sweep
to the northward .and eastward,
and the exposition' biijlding will hT
all livelihood be the fin's prey of
the fire and that as that is immedi
ately on the lake shore, there -will
be nothing further for thp fire to
feed upon, provided we have the
good fortune not to have a change
or wind, a oiack oau or smoke is
J hanging overthe expected course of
L lire, dropping its advance mes-
ing theJrutifiot in
trying to prpventlhe nrp from get
ting a bojd upon their homes, yet
the effort is ns futile as for a phi4 to
make an attempt.
The roar of the advancing fur
nace has the sound of our old
calamity, and nothing short of its
final plunge Into Lake Michigan
will quench it. Streets within a
mile of the conflagration are crowd
ed with teams of every description,
loaded to their utmost capacity with
household "goods, nn storekeepers
who are so fortunate as to secure a'

most valuable stocK. wnerever a

The work of the fire from this on
will burn up as much in one five
minutes as (t has previously in fif

lars and cents. The heat is very
great, and no doubt that In addition
to pecuniary losses, we will have to
mourn thp I039 of lives, as it is next
to impos8ibp for a fire of this fflng
iiitude and fury, burning through so

As the postonlce is decidedly Jn,

and there can by no possibility be
any sent before tomorrow evening,
should the department be successful
in saving thejr valuables.

At the beginning of the fire the.
that part of the city have burned,
though the majority are poor and
shabby. Many people are exhaust
ed with the heat, it being excessive
ly warm to-night.
As predicted in a previous dis
patch, the fire swept into and over
the elegaut First Baptist Church
and Wabash avnue, and what was
this evening before sundown one of
the most elegant and costly church
edifices of our city is now but a
smouldering heap of ruins.
As it was evident from the course
of the fire and the strength of the
wind atrabout 6:30 P. M., that the
postofflce building was in all proba
bility doomed, General McArthur,
the postmaster, made arrangements
at once to remove the mails to a
nlace of safetv and all needed teams
I were immediately pressed into ser
vice bv him. At 8 o'clock the last
wagon left the building, and the
place that had been the depository
of the United States mails centering
here, was deserted forever, tor at,16
minutes past 8 the building first
caught, and by 8:30 It was a mass
11:50 p.m. The fire limits-on the
south are 518 State street near
Harmon Court, Wabash avenue 475,
Just south of ElUridge Court; on11
Third avenue 263, between -Peck"-court
and Twelfth. On the corner
of Peck court and Wabash avenuo
is the only point in the southern
portion where the firemen are oper
ating. The fire broke out-in a
paiat manufacturing shop, corner of
Twelfth and Clark streets, where
the workmen were mixing ma
terial, which exploded and caused
July 15, 2.30 A. 31.
The following are the limits of
the fire; On South Clark, street to
Iwelfth street Clark street burned
but a short distance ;-JJef?roorn was
the southern boundary; Twelfth,
Northern Polk street, Third and
Fourth avenues burned almojt their
entire length, the buildings being
chiefly of a common sort ; State
street from -Twelfth tc Van Buren
street J Wabash avenuo trom Har
mon Court nearly to Jackson, anil
on Michigan avenue many fine
buildings got on fire. The fire was
not general on that street, and was
checked beforo roaohlngthe Exposi
tion building, f Twenty blocks are
burned. The loss is variously esti
mated and cannot be given accurate
ly to-night, but it will not be less
than three millions, and probably
not exceed Mx. Insurance about
two-fifths loss. Some companies
will undoubtedly succumb to tLe
heavy strain on their finances, but
they have been very careful since
the great fire, not to take large risks
in any one locality, and 00 the loss
s wjdejy distributed among thorn.
The following are sorao of the
principal losses; First' Baptist
Church, $100,000;, Church of- the
Messiah, 525,000; Third Baptist
Churpli, (gdfbrpd) $40,000; Jewish
Synagogue, $30,000; Queen" iChapel,

The Beecher-Tilton scandal con
tinues to be the absorbing topic in
Brooklyn, and recent developments
give tha case more interest. Mr.
Beecher came down from Peeksville
yesterday in company of Jas. Red
path, of Boston, and remained at his
home all the evening. He has not
gone before the committee. In con
versation wjtb a reporter, ho said
ho had followed but one policy since
the beginning thejwlicy of silence,
and he was resolute in this. The
publication of letters in the various
newspapers, asking for an investiga
tion, was done by his friends against
Mr. Francis D. Moulton, of Brook
lyn, in response to an invitation of
the Beecher investigating commit
tee, appeared before that committee
this evening. Ills statement was
bland and conciJatory, and he won
golden opinions by his frank and
generous manner. Jn conversation
with a reporter in attendance at the
meeting of tho committee, he said
that he loved Henry Ward Beecher
like the apple of his eye, but that'
he would not stand by and. see
Theodore Tilton crucified. The
committee were deeply impressed
with tbe dignity and courageof Mr.
Moulton, though, holding m his
hands the fate of two such men as
Henry Ward Beecher and Theodore
There was mildness and gentle
ness of manner, and an evident dig
nity of soul about Mr. Moulton that
was the subject of remark. He was
very mueh affeeted when he spoke
of Joseph Howard. The editor of
the Star is preparing a statement
for communicating several import
ant points. On inquiry at the of
fice, an attache of the Star said Mr."
Howard's statement would give a
new-light to the contnnvrsv. His
confidence in Mr. Beecher was una- i
oaten, ana ne tnougpt Tilton was
laboring under an hallucination.
W. B. Carpenter, the-artist, Sam
uel Wilkinson, and Oliver Johnson
will go before the committee. All
there gentlemen are preparing
