The Lake Shore Hotel  Is  Entirely
Twenty-Five   People  Drop  From
the Third Story to Save
Their Lives.
'I'he Moyie Leader of last Saturday
gives the following account of the lire :
Fire broke out in tlie Lake Shore
Hotel this morning uhout six o'clock
and in less than two hours nothing wis
left but the smouldering ruins of the
hotel, the Union Restaurant, and Foiay's
barber shop. Lewis Thomson's office
adjoining the barber shop was torn
down to preveut the spread ofthe fire.
The tire started from a lamp which
exploded in the washroom ofthe hotel
and in a few moments the house was in
flames. There were no lives lost, but
many of the occupants of the house had
narrow escapes. Nearly sll those rooming ou the second and third floor were
compelled to jump from their room windows. Those who received injuries are:
Kd. Whitney and Jack Russell, musicians, slightly crippled about bodies;
Pat. MeNeil, pretty badly burned about
face aud arms ; Fred Irving, ankle badly
sprained from jumping; Bob Mills,
ankle sprained ; lieu lleniuiinger, Win
Green, Dan Drain, A. ll. Barrick and
Dau Mcintosh also received injuries
more or less severe. There was nothing
saved, und those who were in bed ouly
got out with the clothes which they had
on at the time. Mr. and Mrs. Frith,
who were running the hotel, lost not
ouly there chillies, but between $40*1 ami
#500 111 money, The hi tel was owned
by C.J. Clayton, of Nelson aud J. M.
Lindsay of this place. It was valued at
about $3,000, and was covered by (1,000
TllO Union Restauraut was the property of J. M. Chaltertou, It was vulued
at $500 aud had uo insurance. Ii. Pope,
who had the building leased, got most of
his effects out und his loss was slight.
The building in which Mr. Foisy had
his barber shop was owned by F. \V,
Frith,    It was valued at about $300
The cabin of Joseph Frobus, near the
Union Restaurant, was also a total loss.
Some of the buildings in the close
vicinity ofthe fire were only saved by
the good work doue by those who turned
out with buckets, shovels, etc. The Melnnis block across the street from the
hotel whs scorched, but no great damage
Messrs, McNeil. Barrick, Drain aud
Hetuminger were taken to the hospital
today. Drain has a broken ankle and a
badly sprained back.

Mr. and Mrs. Frith and their baby
were sleeping on the second floor. Mr.
Frith heaid a a cry of "fire" hut thought
it was some of the men joking down
stairs, Finally he heard the tramping
of feet, and by this time was wideawake.
He got up, looked out of lhe window,
nn-l then unlocked the bedroom, aud
saw a sheet ol flame in the room opposite. Throwing a blanket around the
baby and pushing his wife ahead of hitn
he hurried forth, not stopping to get
anything in the way of clothes and they
stood around for nearly ten minites
barefooted with snow up 10 their knees.
Miss Sarah McAllister, a sister of Mrs.
Frith, was culled and started to dress.
A man came along the hall kicked in the
door, saying us he did so, "ihere is no
lime for dressing," aud carried her to
safety oulside.
"Hilly" Hamilton, who has charge of
the bar, was Sleeping with Dan Drain.
Drain woke hiin, and they started for
room 16, from where they could drop on
to llie roof Ol the bar room. Drain got
M-pumlcd from Hamilton and jumped
fiom another window to the ground,
breaking bis ankle.
Den Hetuminger, one of the men so
badly burned, could have easily escaped
as he was on the first floor when tlie lire
broke oul. He look desperate chances

The latest word from the hospital is

fire are doing nicely. Two days ago it

Hugh John Out ol Politics.
Montreal, Jan. 10—A Winnipeg dis-
patch says Hugh John has dropped out
of politics for good, aud will form a new
legal connection in Winnipeg, having
decided not to re-enter his old firm of
MacDonald, Tupper, l'hippen & Tupper.
He hus beeu offered two seats in Ontario
since his defeat in Brandon, and has also
heen pressed to remain In politics by Sit
Charles Tupper, hut he positively refused to entertain the question.
The North Star.
The three bin producing mines of K ist
Kootenay—the Norlh Star, Sullivan and
St. Bu gene—-are reported to he iu excellent condition by Manager Robbins
ofthe North Star, who Is m llie city,
says the Spokesman-Review uf lusl
Mr. Robbins states thut the monthly
record of 2 coo tons itom the North Star
has beeu steadily main tattled throughout
the year aud could have bein far ex-
eeded had Die company nol thought it
advisable lo increase Hie ore reserves In
preparation for llie lai-ge output that is
contemplated for the present and future
years. Accordingly a very large amount
of development has been done during
the past year, und  enough ore has  been
blocked out, according to Mr. Robbins,
to sustain a large output fur u year or
two at least.
Tbe Sullivan.
"The Sullivan, which is on the opposite range and also near Kimberley
station, is looking well, and, with llie
completion of the uew spur from Kimberley station to the mine, it wiil he iu
a position to largely Increase Us output,
The property appears to be oue of very
high value.
The year has not beeu a notable one
in the development of prospects in Boat
Kootenay, and it is peculiar thai, wilh
three such mines as we have, there bas
been so little activity iu the smaller
properties. The district is a rich one,
and there seems little doubt that the
three big mines are by uo means the only-
possible producers iu the district. There
is, of course, the difficulty of transportation, but even that should uot hinder
the exploitation of the excellent prospects that are reported Itom many
points. I look, however, for a large increase iu the opperatlon of prospects iu
the near future, antl I believe tliat the
district will be found to hnve many such
mines as the Norlh Slar, Sullivan and
Kugene are proving to be."
Carbonate King tiroup.
Prospector.—Manager II. Olson, of
the Carbonate King group of claims, was
In town on Wednesday. The Carbonate
King Group is situated on I-Iardscrabble
creek, n tributary uf tbe Skookiim Chuck-
Mr, Olson says that a 100 feet of tunnel
and drifts have been run, the mineral
zone has been cross-cut for a distance of
60 feet, tbe zone is heavily mineralized
with iron and urboiwtes of lead. At
the end of the cross cut considerable galena is coining in. Mr. Olson returned
to the mine on Thursday. Work will be
coutiuued all winter.

It is the intention of the government
to extend the wagon road now built to
the foot of St. Murvs lake, along the
lake, and up to the forks. This is a
proper move, i.s it will give transportation facilities to a large district lhat
promises to be one of the richest in mineral in South Kast Kootenay.

Ottawa, Jan. 10.—The World of today,

tbe Crow's Nest Coal Company and
Others was eagerly canvassed here tonight by politicians, aud tbe parti sinus
of either side. There was it meeting of
the Cabinet today, and it is believed
that the quesliou came up. directly or
indirectly, for consideration. At all
events Mr. Turte had a lengthy interview with Mr. Shaughnessy in the C. I'.
R. offices Wednesday night, and the
Minister of Public Wonts started for
Ottawa prepared to urge Mr. Shaiigh
liessy'fl views upon his colleagues, llut
he is up against Mr. Illair, who is deud
against the C. V, R,
Sir Richard Cartwright and Mr.
Sutherland, who cume here today, are
with the C. P. K. Mr. llluir is bucked
by The Globe and Mr. Jaffruy, president
ofthe Crow's Nest Coal Co., by Senator
Cox, by Mackenzie & Mann, who are interested iu the North Star mine, by the
Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate and by
the niluiug companies generally. Mr.
Shaughnessy, fiom his side of it, has
declared war to the knife, and his reprc
sell tat Ives are hete today to answer the
charges of Mr. J off i'ay and his associates.
No one is able to say where Jim Hill is
in the situation. The Crow's Nest Coal
people say Mr. Hill is with them, and
Mr. Shaughnessy admits it. If that is
(he case, there will be a light iu purlin
ment this session to prevent the Great
Northern, Hill's roud, getting a charter
In build into the Crow's Nest,coat fields
The Crow's Nesters will support it, and
the government will find themselves in
a light corner.
Some of their supporters think the
Crow's Nest Company huve had enough
of concessions. But Mr. Jaffray and Mr.
Cox are bard men lo beat. The C. P. R.
representatives here sny that Mr. Hill
has bought a large block of Crow's Nest
stock, or at the very least has agreed to
lake up all the new issue that is to be
made. Several hundred new coking
ovens wiil be erected as fast as money
and men can do it.
Ouly oue compromise is said to be
possible, and that is that the C. P. R,
have their demands in reference to the
Intercolonial grunted, and if they get
that tbey will make concessions to the
miners and Crow's Nest Coal Company
that will be satisfactory all round. But
the answer to this is that Mr. Blair is
bent ou a fight, and that he will nationalize the Houth road, putting the Intercolonial at Georgian Bay. put on a liue
of boats at Porl Arthur und then encourage rapid construction of the Mann-
Mackenzie road across the continent.
The Grand Trunk, it is said, threaten
to come into the fight if the government
buys the Booth roud, aud they will ruu a
fust freight service between midland and

concerns of Montreal ate said to be

Sir Alfred Milner, the High Commissioner in South Africa, has rounded on
Stead in the following wholesome
fashion :
I have received your broad sheet pur

opinion, ynu shall have it.  and I  will
Iso forward it to the press. My opinion
is that you ought to be ashamed of yourself for circulating so vile a slander
against your fellow country men, Vou
seem to have made it your mission iu
life lo vilify yonr country and to slander
the brave men who have suffered and
home so much for their country. It
seems to uie a pity that you don't re
move yourself to France, and offer your
services to the gutter pres-t, where they
undoubtedly would he appreciated. As
to the letter of "A British Officer" I decline to believe lhat any British officer
could so demean himself as to spread so
gross   a   calummy   against   his   fellow-
Idlers, without having the courage Uj
put his name to tlte end of it. If,
indeed, any British officer has stooped so
low. 1 can only say he is a conteiitpiibl
coward, and I should like lo have the
opportunity oi telling him so to his face;
but in my opinion the British officer
iloes not live far front the office of Mr
W, T. Stead. Personally I prefer to believe the testimony of Lord Roberts. Sk

as to lhe conduct of our soldiers in Soulh

the trouble to read Lord Robert's touching farewell to his troops, wheu he
speaks of the gallantry-- the patient en
durance, the good conduct and humanity
ol our brave soldiers. If you have read
it and it has not mnde you feel ashamed

The Herald heartily endorses the senli
ment expressed by the Fort Steele Pros
pector, that this showing "presents i
most satisfactory stale of affairs in relation to the mineral development of this
district." South Kast Kootenay today
bas three of the best known mines in th
province ; lhe Eugene, North Star am
Sullivan, and as has been repeatedly
stated by Engineer Frank Robbins, of
the Norlh Star, there is every reason to
believe that in this district there will yet
be found many North Stars, St. Eugenes
and Sultivans,
It has been amply demonstrated that
the mineral is here, and furthermore
that the ore bodies are of sufficient extent lo prove attractive lo capital. The
coming season promises to be a lively
one iu the district, and the development
during the next twelve months will
establish the reputation of South East
Kootenay as one of the richest mineral
districts in Canada.
Cranbrook is entitled to some recognition from tbe government. Not next
fall, or next year, but now.
The idea of the government allowing
$100 a year for school expenses in a town
the si/e of Crailbrook is ridiculous. And
to expect a few citizens to pay the expense is an imposition. Cranhrook
should have fair treatment.
The people or Craubrook sincerely
symputhi/.e with Moyie and those of her
citizens who lost by lhe recent fire.
The Miners' Union of Moyie have
taken a determined stand against Chinese
labor in that town. (Jood luck to them!
The Chinese and Japanese are today the
greatest menace to universal prosperity
in British Columbia.
Alderman Towuley, ol Vancouver, was
elected mayor, defeating Alderman McQueen, The result insures a wide-open
town for lhe coast metropolis.
Nelson settled their municipal tight iu
a sensible way. The people picked out
John Fletcher for mayor, and five good
men for alderman, and then said, ''these
people go." That settled it. There was
no election, no contest, nothing hut universal acipiiestnce.
The Trail hoard of trade is after the
government for some showing Tor tbe
money paid in way of taxes, etc. Crnnbrook is in the same position. The
government revenues of this town are
rapidly increasing, but the benefits are
small. In fact, aside from the schools,
little or no money has been expended hy
llle government for the benefit of Cranhrook. 	
The Nelson Miner has changed muii-
, ageincul, and Editor Beaton retires. Mr.
Beaton was a persistent fighter, and he
had good timber in his ijuarrels with
John Houston. The fact is, both papers
fought a ruinous fight, as both lost
money sieadil**. The Miner has got iu
new blood and new money, nnd will
change to the morning field again. John
Houston has not said what he wilt do.
Alter a toss of several hundred thousand dollars, the people of Calgary are
arguing about inefficient fire protection,
Cranbrook will be iu the same hoat if tbe
people don't do something.

"There are many signs indicating
that old nge la coming on a nuin," remarked an aged gentleman ii> 11 Washington Star reporter, "bul one uf th.
■ureal is wben he finds thnt liis bus-
pendera have a way of slipping olf the
shoulders. At first be thi.d.s there i-
soiiiethiiig wrong witli thesuspendors,
und tie tries lo remedy it by tigltl
ing them up. For awhile tliis eiirw
the trouble, but. in a little while there
ih more dipping and he gets 11 new pah
of suspenders. Rven they slip olf and
make hint feel uncomfortable. After
awhile be discovers the trouble i.s not
with tho suspenders hut with himself.
As 3 ears roll on a man he gets more
and more round shouldered, and unless
be luia his suspenders braced up by
connecting 11w nt with a bund behind
tbe shoulders fie cannot keep them up
I remember, some years ago, hem in;
two very prominent men speaking of
the fuet that lhey were gelling old.
One of them was aL the time vice president of the United States and the oiher
was a leading senator. "What makes
ynu think you ure growing old?' one
of thom aalted of the other. *I found
it out,1 was the reply, 'a-s soon lis 1 (Hs
covered thai, my suspenders would not
stay up.' 'That haa been my experience
also,' I-II.IU4' fnun the questioner. Neither of the gentlemen referred tn bud yet
readied bis seventieth year, but thev
had boMi discovered they were growing
o-Jd by Uie same luoldent in their lives.
I have never known it to fail. Aftel
n man reaches sixty bis shoulders grow
round stew Illy, and by the time he is
seventy-live his shoulders bnve lost ull
their original si/e and formation."
A number of the British Columbia

were eured of lhe Alaskan fever in a
very practical manner, j-uys Ilu- Post-

thai they would go on the Al-Ki, and
hud purchased three berths.
"Now, you hoys," sunt the aged adviser, "want in remember that it's
pretty eold up there. It's pretty low
temperature here to-dny, but nothing lo

Tin* boya caught up with the Idea en-

out tho programme. Whether ihey did
or not is not known, but tbe other
morning three miserable-looking hoys
canceled three tickets on the Al-Ki, and
as they humbly left the steamship office
one was heard to sny:
