The Fire     Brigade were   out     for
practice on Thursday evening.     They
made a quick run    to the new school
house, and then made a thorough inspection of the building.   A representative ot The Prospector was at the I
school house when the inspection was
made,  and Chief Dezall,  after spend- ■
ing nearly half an hour looking over
the building,   said: "That the     new I
building was a   credit to     tbe city.,
That he could not     think, or see of
any chance for a fire in the building.
The heating   plant was     lirst class,,
and completely   walled in,     with noj
wood    work of   any kind   near    it.
That If a tire should occur,'which is
not at all probable, the pupils would '
certainly   have     time to     leave the j
building in safety,   that     the stairways  were wide,  giving ample room
for the    scholars to get     down, and,
out of thc building without crowding.
That when the lire escapes are placed
in  position,  there will be no hettcr,
or more safe building from firo, or a
better equipped     school   building   in
the province.

Victoria, April 11,—Captain K. G.
Tatlow, late minister of tinance and
agriculture for British Columbia died
at 12:30 today from injuries received
when thrown from his trap on Friday last. He had not recovered consciousness since the accident.
Thrown from his trap when his
horse shied at a passing auto at tho
corner of Vancouver aud Maclure
streets, Capt. R. G. Tatlow, late
minister of finance and agriculture
in the McBride government, sustained
injuries on Friday which proved fatal. The accident occurred jit 5:30
o'clock and until a late hour had not)
regained consciousness.
The ncCident was witnessed by E.
J. Murray, who happened to be pass
ing. He ran at once to the rescue ot
Captain Tatlow, called the ambulance, nnd bail liiiy conveyed to the
Jubilee hospital, whither Dr. O. M.
Jones hud already been summoned.
Dr. .Tones nt once made an examlna-
tion and did all in his power for the
injured gentlemnn.
. The chief injuries appear to have
been to the head, the fall being extremely severe and the concussion to
the brain great. Dr. Jones would
not speak of. thc Injuries pending a
later examination.
Captain Tatlow since his retire
ment from oflice bas been living
quietly in this city, devoting his at
ten tion to his ranch at Finiietly's
Beach, and to riding and driving. The1
time has been occupied as n holiday
following his labors in the oflice
which he held for such a considerable
period and  with  such  success.
Hon. Uobert Garnett Tatlow was
born in Scawa, county Down, Ireland
on Sept, 6, 1855, the family having
an honorable and distinguished ancestry. He was educated at Cheltenham in England. Me was a captain
in the First Prince of Wales regiment
Montreal, and in 1X74 came to British Columbia with Major Strange,
being a member of Battery II. He
was on a tour of inspection of the
defences, but became enamored of the
country, and decided to remain. Ho
went to Victoria as private secretary
to Hon. A. N. Richards, who wns
then lieutenant governor ol British
Columbia, and remained in that po
sition until the termination of hh
official duties, He was tlien nppoin
ted secretary to Lieut. C. F. Corn
wall, continuing with him till 1SXU
His next move was to Vancouver
where he went to represent a large
portion of the townsite of that city.
He •remained in Vancouver, engaged
iu various financial enterprises, and
was connected with the Stanley Park
linn for 15 years, all the improvements being made under his management.
Captain Tatlow was an unsuccessful candidate for the legislature in
1894 for the city ot Vancouver. He
entered the house in l'JOS, and became minister of tinance and agriculture in the McBride cabinet in June,
1903. He was re-elected at the elections of that year, and again in 1907
On nil sides the splendid services of
the late ('apt. Tatlow, to his province, were admitted and particularly

i "I have the great satisfaction of
I knowing tbat I Otljoyod bis unbroken

of our provincial public  n Captain
Tatlow        will   always   lie   remembered
as an     energetic and    st      forceful
Touching briefly upon tbc career of
the late Captain Tatlow as a minis
ter of the crown tbc premier continued: "The laws iu regard to as
sessments and to the collection of
taxes, passed during the sessions of
the parliament of 1903-4-5, and which
ia a very direct way must he recognized as having effected most excellent and beneficial reforms, are to bo
credited to the genius and thoroughness of my late colleague. It was a
time of great anxiety tor the government and Captain Tatlow was always prepared to accept the fullertt
responsibility that he, ns minister of
finance, was called upon to meet.
"No sootier had the affairs of the
treasury been placed on stable and
satisfactory footing than he turned
his attention to the department of
agriculture, and his work in tins
branch of the government stands out
today as perhaps the most prominent
accomplishment in any department
of tlie civil service of the country
during many years past. It is hardly necessary to particularize, but one
cannot help but recall the great ad
vancoment made in horticulture as
well as in agriculture under his inspiration.

all, and to say that hfs very sanguine anticipations were fully realized in the results is to state n fact
that is well known throughout the
"The members nl the provincial
civil service, I am aware, will join
with me in our appreciation of the
late minister's keen interest in the
welfare of provincial  government em-
oyees. Together with Mon. Dr.
Young he gave a great deal of atten-
i to the matter of evil service reform, and in this as in all else thnt
lie undertook, not even the most minute details were permitted to escape him."
Vancouver, April 13. The largest

city today followed the body of U. G.
Tatlow to tbe grave in Mountainvlew

done much for the welfare ami pros

which is diguitied by the persistent
effort and honest toil of many cell
tunes and enobled by the endurance
and self sacrifice of many forgotten
heroes. Although history has left
no record of his doings, be must

which Is to be held in Spokane on

Ono of the most interesting tea-
turcsof thc convention will be tbe
exhibition of a now system ot train

western division of the Northorn I'acilic for tho last three yenrs. So
great has been its success thnt train

evory detail carefully explained to
While in session in Spokane Superintendent R.'amor will have wires run
directly Into the convention hall tn
order thnt thc visiting dispatchers
may listen to tbe transmission ot
train orders and lamlllari/.o themselves with tbe workings of tho new
In explaining the details ot tho invention Superintendent Beamar said
tbat It Is an exact rcversul of tho
old system now In use throughout
the country. Instead of the train
dispatchers calling up the operator*
at the railroad stations along tho
line and giving them their train orders, the new system requires the
operators to ask for orders.
Continuing thc ■ explanation, Superintendent Benmer said: "Take
tht ic stations designated A. B. and
C. When the trnin pulls out of A going towards I), the operator at A
notifies tho operator at II that the
train has passed bis station. The
operator at B then calls up tbo dispatcher and asks for n block card
from 11 to C. If thc block shows
clenr on tlio train dispatcher's sheet
he gives II Instructions to Issue a
block card.
Before the train leaves B, th* op
erator at that station calls up the ■
operator at C and asks hiin to pledge.:
tho block between their stations. If
the block ls busy the operator refuses to pledge and immediately
culls tbe train dispatcher. Because
ot this checking system a collision
will be impossible unless all three
men make the same mistake at the
same time.
Under the system Invented by Superintendent Beamer and Mr. Lang-
try no train can pass a station
without first receiving its block card,
and instructions are issued to trainmen from station to station.
The "A. B. C. system" has been
in use on the division of the Northern Pacific running from Paradise to
to tbe Coast for three years and
thus tar no defects havo been discovered In it.
Some time ago the interstate commerce commission which examines
all devices and systems ln use on the
railroads, commend tho "A. B. 0.
