Shortly before midnight on Monday
Inui iiii attempt wns made to burn the
H'ltul Hpokane,  A Hack ot shavings,
saturated  with coal oil, was placed
through iiii- kitchen window near the
range nnd igniii-d.  Tha crackling of
burning shavings awoke Mrs, J. VV.
Winters, wbo ban chargi- of Un* dining
room of tbe hotel.  She was sleeping
upstairs quite a distance from the kitchen,  tint,  the Ht*  had gained sncli
headway that the  noise  was  beard
even nl Ihal. distance.   Mrs. Winters
Immediately notified I.. E. Baiter, the
prapiietor, who fortunately hefore be
went lo ln-il hail brought in two buck
em of water for use in cleaning up in
the liar ihi' next morning.  The«e were
lefl in the bar done to the door opening oul into the hall. Mr. Salter, when
informed of tha flte. immediately rush*
ed downstairs, and seizing a line ..   of
water dashed it against the burning
ceiling directly ahove the sack nf shav
ings.   This succeeded In extinguished
the  flames   which   had   reached   tin*
celling, nnd the falling water parilv
quenched the burning mass of shavings,
while the second burkel left nothing
hut the blackened walla and charred
ceiling nml Hour to show thai a fire
hid existed.   Bad the two buckets of
water proved Insufficient to stop the
law  tbe entile building would  un
■ li.tiht<-<)!v have lieen destroyed, as the
Ure fiend had taken the precaution lo
remove the noli of tlie pump connecting llie handle with the roil, so that if
mote w Her hud lieen required it would
have had to Iw carried so Iai that the
firs in tin- meantime would have made
suoh headway aa tu lie beyond control
nnd would in all probability have bum
ed the large slallle ami onlliuililiiigs in
iiilineclion with the hotel, or had Mr.
Sailer not hail the presence of mind to
throw the water at  the ceiling  and
thus make the d"iilile use of it by putting uol the Haines which had reached
the ceiling and also the burning shavings and floor as well, the small amount
of water available would have  laten
useless.
The fire was evidently the wink ni
someone fully acquainted with every
detail of the place, as there was a catch
oo the kitchen window which could
not have been opened l>y any une un
less tbey  were  thoroughly  familiar
with the premises, snd the cowardly
act had been most deliberately planned, as tbe shavings were placed close
to the kiiehen range in hopes ihat be
fore the fin- was discovered it would
have progressed enough  to cover up
all traces of incendiarism anil  leave
ihe impression ihat it originated front
the range.   Then again the removal of
the la.lt in tbe pump is another evidence of the determination of the lire
hog to carry out his fiendish ends.
Tuesday morning Mr. Salter notified
Provincial Constable Georxe Cunningham,  who visited the scene of the Hiv
Iml was unable to gain information to
justify an arrest at the lime, but since
i hen some valuable Information 1ms
lieen gleaned which may lead to Jin arrest being made later on.  There was
certainly an object In view in the des-
ii'iii'tion of the hotel, but what that
nhjeot was still remains a mystery, tail
i' is the general supposition that "ho
ever the guilty party is Intended In
some way lo benefit, as ii could have
heen done from no ol her motive, for
Mr. Salter hasn't an enemy In the cn-
lire place.
Tbe hotel, wbich is owned hy M.
Moran, is leased hy Mr. Salter, li was
insured for $2,r*.Ttl In companies represented by .1. li- Porter nf Greenwood,
but the insurance bus since been cancelled. Had the building binned
Mr. Salter would have been a
heavy loser, as there was only about
$250 held by bim on his large stuck ol
1'*»■".'.' mmsi.
JS-.hi  m-iu ,., 	
liquors and bar fixtures,   Every puss
lile effort  is being made by Imth the
police and Mr, Salter tn gather Information that will lead lo the arrest and
subsequent oonvto'ion of the guilty
party.
There were a number of people, including several women and children,
[sleeping up.-iairs In the hotel at the
time nf the fire, and had the building
burned theio,Is no telling but thai it
! might  have resulted in serious loss of
I life.
A frightful accident occurred last
Monday night near the U. P. II. railway station, Hossland, iu which H. A.
MacDonald, a well known prospector
of that place, was run over by a shunting engine and had both legs severed
just above the ankles,
After the arrival of the train from
the north the engine driver proceeded
lo shunt bis engine so as lo la* in readiness to take away the train the following uiorning.   While doing this, just
after 11 o'clock, the engine having just
passed the crossing on St. Paul street,
the form of a man was seen walking
down the track away from the train.
The conductor halloed at the top of
his voice and applied the air brake,
The man in froni made no effort to get
"lit of the way, and the advancing engine "truck and run over him,   The
prostrate form was taken out Irom be-
tween the wheels of the engine, and in
the meantime the  employees at the
depot, hearing the cries and sudden
slop  of  tbe  locomotive,   knew  that
something had happened, and ran to
lhe  spot.     Tbe  prostrate  man   was
found to bave bad both legs crushed
just ahove lhe ankle.    Luckily one of
the employees, Arthur Haley, an operator, knew whai was to lie done, and
instantly applied a rough hm effective
tourniquet on both legs just under the
knees,   This stopped the bleeding, and .
the wires were set going for a doctor.
ln lhe meantime every effort was
made to gel at lhe name of the wound
ed man who, suffering from deafness
was unable t" gather what was being
*aid to him.   When an attempt w-ns
made lo look  into  his pockets Io see
whether any papers tliere would give
lhc requisite information   he injured
man declared his name lo be MacDonald, the deaf man, and requested th»
bystanders to  leave hii, porketliook
alone.  Help was presently obtained,
Dr, Mackenzie being the lirst medical
nan to arrive on the scene, and Mar-
Donald »n- removed to the hospital.
Ou his arrival there the wounded man
seemed perfectly conscious and  well
aware of his precarious condition, for
he asked that his sister's children be
sent  for, since be desired to make a
will  in their favor.   They weie sent
for, and Dr, Mackenzie Imgan to dress
the wounds of the man, cutting away
the clothing and making things ready
for the amputations which were seen
to lie inevitable,   Macdonald was perfectly conscious, nnd sjjiil that he was
deaf and had beard nothing until he
was struck.   He Btated  that he bad
been down town and hail lakeii a glass
or so of whisky, but uot overmuch,
and  that  be  was on  hii way home
when the accident occurred.   He had
gone up St. Paul street and had turned
east along the railway track, making
a short cut home,   He «ns living with
his brother in law, ,1. I-'ox. who resides
on Park street, near third avenue.
Whether the unfortunate man will
survive tbe amputation,   which  was;
undertaken by Drs. Kenning, Bowes,
Campbell and Mackenzie. Is doubtful, j
Much blond   has heen   lost, and tlie i
double amputation is a very serious j
operation, with an Inevitable loss ol
blood.   Bvery effori will be made t-i
preserve the life of the unfortunate
man, who is only a young fellow, certainly not more than ii.'i years of age,
but the doctors report him In n critical
condition, with litlle hope of i-ecovery.
H. A. MacDonald went to Hossland
In 18115 and has been since engaged in
mining pursuits, He owns many claims
in the vicinity of the town, especially
on Sophie inountain.   Two years ago
he was thrown from his horse, and his
foot catching In the stirrup, he was
dragged.   The  injuries   sustained  at
that  lime resulted ill the loss of his
bearing which in turn was the primary
cause of the recent accident.
No Illume is in any way nttaclied to
any of the railway employees, who
did all in their power lo warn the unfortunate iiiiui of the approaching
danger, and also did everything possible to save his life afler the accident
occurred, and had it not heen for the
timely assistance rendered by operator
Haley, MacDonald would certainly
have died from loss of hlood before
medical assistance arrived.
It has just leaked out, that the post
office nt (irand  Porks has been burglarized,    Allh.iugh the rohli. ry was
committed over a week ago -the night
before Thanksgiving—the matter has
been  kept very quiet, and  it ia only
just the last few days that it has he-
come generally known thai ihe office
bad   been   robbed.     Two   registered
packages, one containing Sl.lKKi from
ihe Hnnk of Montreal, Greenwood, and
th" other containing $2,000 from the
same bank al Winnipeg, which were
lying loosely in a drawer in tin- olllce,
were stolen.   Both packages were addressed  to the   Eastern   Townships
Rank and contained I'ills of the lunik's
issue which were sent to the Grand
Forks branch for redemption,   James
McKinnnn,   acting   manager  of  the
hank, states that it will not Buffer any
loss, as the remittances were fully in*
sured in the Hritish and Foreign Marine  Insurance   company.     It   would
seem thai the packaged were left in
a drawer in lhe post oflice over night,
as they arrived after the hank   bad
closed, and as no safe was provided all
the burglars had to do was to unlock
the door, walk in and take the money,
The action of the Government in failing to provide a safe is severely criti-
"ised,   The police are winking nu lhe
I case, and Postofflce Inspector Dorraan,
of Vancouver, is conducting an investigation and thinks he has a clue wbich
will result in the arrest of the thi  i bs.
The mysterious pan of tin- robbery is
the fact that the postofflce wjis  found
locked in the morning.   This bus given
currency lo tl ebelief thai llielmrglats
were well acquainted with the premises  and  the  postmaster's   methods.
This is the second time Ilia', the same
office has been robbed,   About n year
nnd a-half ago it wns similarly visited,
when several mull hags ami their contents were actually carried ntf.
Disallowed.
The Dominion Government will
shortly announce the disallowance nf
the Grand Forks Railway. A private
despatch received at Grand !•', ;ks h.st
Wednesday, conveyed the inlelligi ncu
that the Doniinion government will
shortly announce the disallowance nl
an acl passed hy lhe Biiii-h Columl ia
legislature last session incorporating
the Grand Forks and Kettle River
Railroad conipnny.
This would be following the precedent established nearly ten years ago
when the federal authorities vetoed a
uiejtsiire of the Manitoba   legislature
authorizing the extension of lbe Northern Pacific railway into that province.
The ground taken  liy  the Dominion
Government   In declaring the Manitoba legislature unconstitutional was
! Ihal the British Ni rib America   1
1 an imperial  measure,   the Dot     ion
Confederation   expressly     -
the federal parliament iherightto incorporate  railways, connecting wl h
exira territorial railways.   Pen imiil
parliaments, however, are anthorined
io grant charters  lor  railways which
shall not cross railways chartered by
the Dominion  Parliament, and who
shallnol connect with foreign railways,

Midway i.s fast growing in importance as a shipping point, and ns soon
as there is sufficient snow to admit of
freight being hauled by sleighs, there
will lie an enormous increase in the
ore shipments alone. 'Ihe Zala M. intends to hip 60 ions a day, bin this is
only one of the many mines that will
be hauling me to Midway Ibe coming
winter. There is as well tbe Cariboo,
and the tact that it is the only free
milling gold mine in the province to
pay regular dividends is sufficient evidence of Its large shipments, nnd upon
the completion of the VVest Fork
wagon road the Canni will commence
hauling ore, so that in the near future
there will be three mines assisting to
make Midway the shipping centre of
the Boundary country.

v paper man was looking for ideas,
and nalutnllj enough drifted into a
b ,i,-l, when he happened on un astounding inst nice of unnatural pre
cocity on the part of n small urchin of
iiiic. (tliul in something that had
perhapB begun life ns a suit of clothes,
he accompanied his father to the sitting room of the hotel and took bis
seat beside him with a cynical expression upon bis face as if things which
happened around him were quite
beneath his wil. Presently, however,
bis fattier culled for a glass of beer
and after finishing it to within ii
quarter of an inch of the bottom, and
banding what remained to his son,
remarked ton bystander, "Takesafler

depth of the contents, gave a kind of
snort of contempt for small mercies,
and remarked before swallowing the
dregs, "Takes very little afcr father,
and don't you furgel it,"
In Iheir anxiety to gather news,
ninny newspaper men make the grave
mistake of giving creditance to anything that is told tntlieui. ncvertnking
the trouble to even inquire ns to
whether the source from which it
came i • reliahle or mil. As an instance
of thi.-we noticed iu t lie last issue of
the "New West Trade" an Item stating
lhat "Lequime & Powers are moving
their sawmill from Midway to Greenwood." Now the gentlemen re/erred
to never bad any intention of moving
their sawmill from here. What would
be their object ill doing boP They can
do n much hetter business here than al

selling as much lumber in Greenwood
and other towns enst of Midway as
they would if (heir saw mill were
located i here. For instance the pres
ent week ihey nre shipping two carloads lo Phoenix nnd live to iheB. 0,
mine, Summit camp. Then again as
Miilway is centrally located. , In y find
it more convenient to supply the
lowns west of here, where most of
their orders come irom. No doubt the
"New West Trade" copied the item
from some oilier paper, believing it to
be correct when it, was oiily the day

get copy. It. is much better when
short, iif local news to leave n blank

There is no better investment at
the present time than Midway proper-
ty. Those who bought in Spokane a
few years ago have since made fortunes. Midway is the Spokane of the
Boundary Country. It is the coming
metropolis of the interior. Trains are
now running into Midway, and the price
of lots will go up shortly. Invest now
and make money.
