Anniversary   of   Armstrong's   Destructive   Conflagration.
Our   Progress   Since.
Hardly one of the older residents
of Armstrong would fail to have
culled to their minds lust Friday
night the recollections of the eventful night of just five years previous. For last Friday marked
the fifth anniversary of the great
fire that swept with its wave of
destruction over the principal business portion of the town on August 10,1901.
To the many new settlers, who
have taken np their residence in
the district since thnt date a brief
reference to the tire might be of
It was at twenty minutes to 3:00
o'clock in the morning that the
presence of the tire fiend was discovered. As the present excellent
system of waterworks was not
yet installed and naturally at this
season of the year everything was
dry and burned like tinder, the
futility of all efforts of the citizens
to check the spread of the flames
until they had burned their course
was soon made apparent, and in u
space of time which seemed remarkably short for its work of
distraction the tire had wrought
the loss of nearly the whole of
that portion of the town to the
north of the railway, which included all the principal business places
of town. Among the heavy losers
were Hardy, Wright & Co., general store; Fraser & Patchett, hardware and furniture store; R. R.
Burns, drug store; Smith &
Francis, billiard hall; B. Francis,
implement house; A. F. & A. M.,
hall; L. E. Farr, residence; Wood,
Cargill Co., general store; F. N
Daniels and W. Buker, residences
owned by C. Addison; Hawkins
Bros., butcher shop; I, 0, F„ hall;
C. P. R„ freight shed; Dr. Van-
kleek, office and instruments; .).
M. Wright, implement warehouse
and contents.
The tire was of incendiary origin,
set by .lerry Eagle, then a resident of the district. Eagle was of
demented mind, and bore an imaginary spite toward some of the
business men of the town and took
this means of securing bis revenge.
Walking to Enderby, he carried
here a can of coal oil and a quantity of lamp wicking. The latter
saturated with oil, lighted and put
in Hardy & Wright's stere and the
dastardly deed was done. Stealth
ily stealing away, Eagle was not
seen and but for his own folly after
ward would perhaps never have
been suspected.
Eagle is now safely in custody
at New Westminster.
Being comprised of a list of enterprising business men and sur.
rounded by a district of rare fertility and productive abilities, even
so complete a destruction wns not
destined to prove nn obstacle in-
; surmountable in her continued
growth und development and today
