Kditor "Herald:"
Dear Sir: Permit me, through    tbe

Language fails to express our gratitude to the largo hearted men and
women of Cranhrook, who havo proved
friends indeed to all in this, our time
of direct need. I am sure that 1
voice tho sentiments of all when I
sa\ tbat the memory of such groat
kindness will remain as long as the
memory of that awful calamity—as
long as memory lasts.
From the gonial mayor down to tin-
last citizen all are worthy of highest

merchants    come to   frnilion     these Mb
stores will be    rebuilt mi a grander1
scale than ever.     The terrible calamity whicli bars overtaken the city will
hill  prove a blessing in disguise. The
town has boon taught a lesson, which
should be taken to heart seriousl) by
many towns and cities in ihe    west.
Summer after summer wc are familiar with ihr   skill of burning brush
on the very out skirts of many towns.
What is everybody's hnsiness is    no*
body's business, and little attention is
paid to these sources of danger    at1
their doors.      They trust to a kind|({
providence  lhat   no disturbing     •"'—'   ,n
will fan tlie slumbering emhe
an uncontrollable conflagration, and
take no precautionary measures to
extinguish Hie Incipient blaze, nor cut
away lho rapidly accumulating underbrush that is such a menace to safety. Fernie has paid the penalty in a
manner which has appalled the whole
Dominion, and this object lesson may
uot he lost upon ulher communities.
The future of tbe eity is bPlglvb. A

been repeatedly Inflicted on this

cheerful face to the world, must

of the most progressive un**-    rospor-

province. Throughout Ihis last
lamiiy no despondent note lias been

whole atmosphere has been permeated
with expressions of faith, an abiding
faith in fie future, and that faith will

Itirning to lheir devested town with

Aug. 7.—With characteristic
energy property owners and business
men are now grappling with the problem of rebuilding tho citv. That tbe
new city will lie built on a moro substantial and pretentious scale than
ever before, is conceded bv tlmse
whose opinions in such matters are of
wiliie. Owing to the lateness of the
season it is improbable that any
structures or importance can be completed before next spring, but much
can be accomplished in prepnruiorv
work. In lhe meantime wooden

turned a few davs hefore to prepare
[daces for their families and that is
why they were so anxious to have
the women and children come back.
Notice was given thnt a special train

tbe departure of the Irain was de-

as he can procure building material.
Mrs. .lennings, sister of Wm. Mills,

came up to Movie with the refugees.
Barney Wilson, lhe violinist, was

hiked for Frank Johnslon's hotel.

Mrs. Oeo.' Wright's sister and her

to give but few of the losses sustained by the companies, hul after a

tho conclusion has been arrived at
lhat the insurance losses will foot
somewhere between $2,000,(100 and
$2,235,000. In the case of the larger
losses reported, fairly accurate figures
have been obtained from the owners

An interesting discovery has just
been made lu the old cathedral city
of Winchester, Hants. It consists of
a corroded wrought-iion implement,
which is composed of two iron tubes
the inner one nf which projects about
'■ in. beyond the outer one at the
top, The outer tube is lap-welded
and appears to have been shrunk
on to the inner one. The bottom is
closed ami lint, and on one side i
strong hook or catch, while at.
distance of about an inch from the
lower ond is a hole whieh perforates both tubes. The boro ot the inner tube is } in., and tapers slightly
J mm the base to the shoulder, where
Ihe outer tube ends. There cam be
no doubt that this instrument
a very early form of firearm. In his
"Arms and Armour" BoUtell says:
"ln the first instance, this Weapon
(the gun and pistol) is not distinguished by any peculiar qualities
or characteristics' of its own from
the canon—the gun first appears simply as a small cannon. As there
was a culverin which was fixed in a
kind of carriage, so also there was
a culverin whieh was fixed in t
man's arms—in fact, a hand culverin
Such weapons as these were in use
at the end of the Mlh century
Tire example just discovered is a
small cannon pure and simple, and
was no doubt bound lo a piece ol
wood by bands of iron or some oilier
material. The inner tube is much
worn away and the weapon evidently in its time saw a great deal of
use.

At an inquest on human remains
found on a ballast hill at Uchhurn-
on-Tviie, where they had lain for
more thau sixty years, the .iury
lound that death was duo to a fracture oa the right side of lhe skull,

A PRINCESS OF MYTHS.
Princess Pocahautas, the Indian
girl whose skeleton was supposed lo
have been unearthed the other day at
tlravesend, England, might well be
christened tbe Princess of My liis. For
of all the many romantic stcries that
lave gathered," iu the course of four
hundred years about lier name,
scarcely one has been founded or
fact. She was not even a princess.
Her father, Powhatan, was racrel
sub-chief of a small toaving hand of
savages. The most romantic reported episode in her career was when
she was supposed to have saved from
death at the stake the famous Captain John Smith, by interposing her
own body between tliat of thc white
captive and his would-be executioners.
Bui this story was invented by
Smith in England after the appearance of Pocohantas in England.
Neither is it true tbat she offered her
hand in marriage tc Smith: She
was, in fact, already married to the
chief of a neighboring tribe, from
whom she was treacherously stolen
by a certain Samuel Argall. As a
ransom, seven white captives, with
some muskets, axes and other goods
were sent into the English camp, ac
cording to agreement. Argall kepi
both the ransom and thc girl, and
presently, growing tired of her, nave
her to one John Rolfe. who had her
baptised in the name, of Itebccca, at-
terwardsgoing through a form of
marriage with her. Rolfe brought
her to England in 1516. but she only
lived until the year follcwlng, dying
of consumption ' nt Gravcscnd on
board tlm vessel that was to have
conveyed her hack to her native land.
In London she was known as "the
beautiful savage" and La Belle Souv-
ago Yard, off Ludgale Hill, was so
railed nfter her. Sbe is said not to
have been beautiful, but. a verv ordinary looking gill indeed.
This is thc time of year when „
city man dreams of the agricultural
life and has a nightmare every time
he thinks of having to mow the
lawn.

Cranhrook, tho eily of refiiRe.
Kverybudy will know where ('ran
nrook i.s now.
Thc Herald's special edition had a
circulation of 5,000 copies nnd they
went all over (he world from Australia to Iceland,
Lost, strayed or stolen, o Game
Protective association. A (lame
Protective association was formed
soino time ago amid much enthusiasm
thc members paid their dues and at
that it seems to have died a natural
death. The shooting season is at
bund and reports of unlawful killing
or gamo are heard on every hand,
and no game warden has been appointed. This matter is up to the
provincial government and Ihey can-
nM act too quickly in the matter.
Another matter whieh should he taken up is the re-stocking of our
streams with trout in thc same way
as the States of Washington, Idaho
and Montana are doing, and where
she fishing is improving every year,
whilst ours is to all intents and purposes a tiling of tlie past. Wake
up.
It should he remembered thg-t every
one of the special terccntuary
stamps purchased bv the public means
a contribution to the good work of'
the     national    antl-tuherculosla   so
ciety.    One has to bave stamps any-
wav.     Ask    for   the special edition
mi help to fight the white plague,
•'Man's Inhumanity to man makes
countless thousands  mourn." "One
touch   ot nature   makes   the •whole
world k3n."
The Kootenay Liberal comes out
strongly against Conductor Caven
and the charge that he put refugees
of! the brain. The Liberal is disposed lo be fair in all things, but
the Herald would suggest that to get
better posted hefore it s so positive.
Tom Caven is not the kind of a man
to Heat homeless people in "an inhuman" manner.
When   thousands  are in need there
re a lot   of    Christians discovered,
for   tho    true   Christian is the one
wh<> loves his fellow man.
What do you think of Cranbrook?
W»* have alwavs been proud of Craubrook, hut \\n think rame of the
peoplo now tban ever.
So greal was the protest all over
the province against compulsory vaccination that the government, withdrew 1he order.
hi great, eases of sorrow humanity
loves humanity, and the smaller differences ot life are. forgotten.
The Victoria Colonist, commenting
ui the sympathy and help shown to
Fernie hy outsido places, has the
following to say:
"If it is possible to observe a
gratifying feature about so distressing a calamity as that nliith
has just overtaken Kemie, and
'neighboring towns, one must be
struck with the significance of
the outpouring of sympathy and
help from all sections oi Western
Can-ada. It has been truly said
that "ono louch of nature makes
tin- whole, world kin," and this
was never better illustrated thgn
im thu present occasion. Wo
ought not, to forgot, in this connection, that: our friends t-o the
south of the line have shown by
their ready response lo the ap-
peal for help that international
boundaries no longer exist on such
occasions. The citizens of Spokane have earned the lasting
-gratitude of the people of British
Columbia."
W. B. Melnnes seeks the Liberal
nomination for the Dominion house
in Vancouver.
The Herald is in receipt of Vol 1,
N'o. 1, of the Suninierland Review.
I. F. Watkins is to lie heartily congratulated upon his initial number
which is well edited, well printed and
full of information about the beautiful country in whieh it is published.
Chief O. A. Dow and Dune. McLean, of the city police, did splendid
work during thc time thnt the Fernie
refugees   were here.     They put    in
um hours and worked very hard and
must feel satisfied of their work as
the citizens cer.tainlv are. Praise is
also due t-o S. H. Iloskins, who was
in charge of large bodies of epccinl
onstables.
A point that stands out in flaming
talics in favor of Cranbroook is the
fact, that in spite of our population
being doubled, practically in -18
hours, during tin- whole ten days
that the Fernie people were here
tliere was not one single police court
ease during that time. This proves
two things. First, that the city
was admirably policed, and second,
that the people were most law-abiding.

MR. BAKER PROTESTS
Cranbrook, B.C., Aug. 12, '08.
Editor Cranbrook Herald:—
Ifenr Sir: I   have beard statements
made, and same have heen mentioned
n some papers, that thc Kootennv
Indians would never camp in Win Elk
va'lcv and called it the "VaHey of
Doom." one paper that 1 noticed
went as far as to refer to Fernie as
the "'Citv of Doom." Now, 1 have
known thesi* Indians for over twenty
years nnd have often ramped with
them in thc Elk valley and never
heard any mention of anv such superstition. The only ohieetion they (or
nny one else for that matter) ever
had was that teed for horses was
very scarce. I am writing this as I
think it very unfair on poor Femic
to make anv statements that might
injure her.
Yours truly.

t        WYCLIPFE        X
(Special correspondence.)
Otis Staples left Friday on a business trip to Vancouver.     He expects
to he absent about two weeks.
If you want- to spend a few days hi
peace and happiness come to ' the
•(iaiden of Eden."
I). K. Vales, of the Otis Staples
Lumber company, who has been looking after the interests of that company at Fernie, was at Wyeliffe on
Monday looking after orders for thei!
branch" at that point.
W. H. Bradford, of the Wyeliffe
hotel, was doing business in Cranbrook on Tuesday. Harry says thai
the tires are very bad aloug the road,
and that the wind has blown trees
across the toad so tliat it. is almost
impossible for the travelling public
to navigate. The government should
look into this, and have the road
cleared at once.
Leu Crosby, one of the best fellows that ever stepped iuto a mill,
left for England on Monday where ho
intends to have an operation performed on his foot, which he had smashed
some time ago in the mill here.
L<-n's many friends here wish bim a
good trip and hope that he will return in the pink of condition.
Eddie Dolan, of Cranbrook, has
taken a positian in the machine shop
of the Otis Staples Lumber eompanv. Eddie is a gentleman of the
first waters and that he will make
good in Wyeliffe goes without saying.
We were indeed sorry to hear that
Conductor Caven was charged with
putting refugees oft his train last
week. Thero is a mistake somewhere. Tom Caven is not a man of
t hat character. The writer has
known Tom Caven for the past four
years and during atl that time I
never Known him to do a mean trick
and to say that he would do such
mean and low trick as put homeless
people off the train is absolutely untrue.     His job would go first.
A parly consisting of Stcrl Staples, Uick Moore, Angus Musscr, John
Highland, Chas. Meat and F. E.
Haines took a trip to St. Marys lake
on Sundav last. All present had a
most enjoyable time.. Fishing was
irood und the day on the lake superb.
The largest catch ot tlie liav was
made hv Mr. Haines, who succeeded
landing seventy pounds ot the speckled
beauty. The party visited Mr.
Meaeham's ranch and had a feed of
luscious strawberries, whieh were
thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. Mcecham
has a well kept garden and his potatoes are excellent. A tew ot these
were shown to the Herald representative, and they aro the largest ever
seen in thc Kodtcnnys, many of
them weighing over one pound eaeh.
His oats are just up to one's shoulders. AU of the partv contemplate
taking another trip. Harry Bradford
has nanii-H the crowd "The Angling
club."
There seems to he no clue as tn how
the fires have started. On Tuesday
night a fire swept the St. Marys
prairie and burned about 100 tons ol
hay belonging to tlie Otis Staples
Lumber company. It also gave Me-
Dermid's and Tisdale's ranch a close
call. If there is any way possible to
stop this it should lie done at once,
ns it is certainly putting the country
to a very heavy loss. Tliere are a
bunch of men here from Cranbrook
who own timber limits in the vicinity of Kimberley. People travelling
through the woods at this time ol
year should be careful not to drop
matches in the dry brush and other
intlamable material tn the woods. The
Fernie disaster started from something small.
If Cranhrook   ranchers have     anv
bananas that   they   think    will not
ripen in the banana belt, tliey    had
better send them to WycMITe, as there !
has not been any frosts here as yet. I
"Mike" Bnrrie, who has been    living   hi   and around   Wyeliffe for the
past five    years, left   for Greenwood
last week, where he has secured      a j
lucrative position   with one of     the j
large mining companies of that place.
"Mikey" is a good fellow and     his !
host of     friends    in this little burg
wish him alt kinds of good luck.

John Worth Kern, Democratic
nominee for       vitic   - president
was horn in Howard county,
Indiana, Dec. 20, lHlit, and has lived
in Indiana all liis life. Active
politics from his early manhood he
has boon regarded for several years
past as oue of thu leading Democrats
of his commonwealth. Twice he
Invaded the state ticket as candidate
for governor, in 1900 and 1004, being
unsuccessful in each campaign. In
lOOfi he received a complimentary
vole ol his party Ior United States
senate.
Ills home is in Indianapolis, wliere
he is a lawyer and where he held the
office of eity attorney from 1807 to
1001. Previously he had been state
supreme court reporter from 1885 to
1600, and state senator from 1802 to
1800. He is an alumnus of thc Un
Iverslty of Michigan, class of 1803.
His nomination was due to
the determination of Thos. Tapgart,
chairman of the Democratic national
committee. It is said thero is a
strong personal friendship between
these two men. Outside liis own
state, Mr. Krru is scarcely known,
although his name is familiar through
speeches he has made. The newspapers of the east nud middle west
do not take kindly to his nomination
and intimate that il will not strengthen the ticket.

A London cable says:   Lord North-
el ifl'c, lhe principal proprietor of   the
much neeiiod  Daily .Mail n'nd other publications, has
tho London Times. The preliminary
arrangements have been kept a profound secret, and the sale ol the
paper coming as soon after tho organization ol the limited liability
company to prevent its purchase by
O. Arthur Pearson will create astonishment throughout the world. The
purchase was completed only within
the last ten idays, and arrangements
for the trausfer of the paper are
still precipitated hv what will be regarded as this premature announcement of the sale.
For the machinery alouc Lord
Northcliiie paid $100,000, this being
the valuation put upon it liy lhe
Times, but il is wlMiin my knowledge
lhat it is liis Intention to sell this
plant ami replace it with another id
a more cumplete aud up-to-date order.
The recent decision tu I urn the
Timer* into a limilnl liability company was partly due to friction between the idd proprietors and partly
because til internal differences as regards the management. It was expected lhe change wuuld give those
interested financially sume voice in
thv direction ul the paper according
to tho value of their holdings, ll
appears lhat this arrangement did nut
turn uut tu he satisfactory, The
discontent by degrees became mote
ml mote accentuated, aud the dif-
ferencos move marked, The share*
holders, being tor the most part
members ot the Walter family, and
descendants and collaterals toi three
generations, it was considered besl
all concerned to sell the papei and
ko a proportionate division ui lhe
money realized.
At this juncture Lord NoLthiliue
came in and made an ct'tiiUhlc olter,
which was accepted, u maj be
added that when lhe Times was turned into a limited liabiliu Compnnj
with Arthur Walter, li. E. Buckle,
and Moberly Hell as chiel manager
aud directors, Lhe ruiuoi got abroad
that Lord Northcliiie was the principal linaticial backer ot ihe scheme.
Tbis, 1 am ia a position to say distinctly, was uot the case.
Lord Northcllffe, formerly Sir
Allied Charles William Harmsworth,
one of the world's greatest publishers, was born ou the lath of July
ISlia, at Chapeli/od, near Dublin, and
was the eldest son ol the late Alfred
Harmsworth, barrister, and Geraldine
Mary Mollett. Harmsworth, the
youth, was as determined as Harms-
worth the millionaire, lie refused io
enter Cambridge and read for the
bar, but as a youngster took up freelance journalism instead, and lived
lor a lime un a modest income, sharing apartments iu tlattcrsea, with
Mr. Herbert Ward, now the well-
Known African explorer.
The modest income was soon transformed to £30,000 a year. Ile bought
the Morning Post fur'a sun,;, made u
a great property, and Ihen in Mav,
IKUi;, founded the Daily Mail, oui ol
which lie is said to have cleared in
one year £50,000.
hi 1888 lie married Mary Elizabeth,
the eldest daughter of the late Unbelt Miluer. She shared in his
struggles, and has been his greatest
help iu success. Her beauty and
philanthropy are tho praise uf all
who know her.
Lord Northcliiie believes in young
men, and boasts that all his assistants are young. Besides numerous
English newspaper properties lie m
the owner and publisher of several
magazines, and has only lately made
tho purchase of extensive, lumber
rights in Newfoundland for thc supply
of pulp for his establishments. He
is still a comparatively young man,
and full of energy. lie works fourteen hours n da) nnd iu the intervals
drives nn auto und fishes.

Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
T
HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But thc answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, thc
HERALD "delivers thc goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. arc printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.  We can please you.

LOCATION
I Cranhrook is situated between the
main range of the Rooky Mountains
and the Purcell ranee on a plateau,
known as St. Josephs prairie. Its
location is distinctly picturesque, the
views to he obtained in uit directions having no superiors in tbt
province ol British Columbia.
CLIMATE
Cranbrook altitude is 3,087 leet
above sea level. The climate is an
ideal one. 'ihe snowfall is, an a
rule, light. Spring opens early.
The summers are pleasant, tbe temperature always declining at night*
tali. The Cranbrook district is
noted Ior ity bracing atmosphere and
almost perpetual sun shine.
FRUIT
As a iruit country Hie Cranhrook
district is unsurpassed. Although,
at thu present time, hut tew orchards arc of bearing age, still those
few have shown wbat can he dune
along the lines of fruit cultivation.
Thc Cranbrook district has a larger
area of imdovelopod fruit laud than
any other district in llritish Columbia. Kruit lands may still he purchased at a reasonable purchase
price, which same cannot be said uf
nny other district in lhe province.
MARKET GARDENING
Market gardening is also gone into
on a quite extensive scale and the
quality of the vegetables raised is
second to none on the continent.
MINERAL
The surrounding district is famous
the world over for its largo bodies
of gllver-lead ore. The St, Eugene
mine at Moyie is said to he the largest silver-lead mine ou the North
American continent. The Sullivan
group and tlie North Star mine at
Kimberley contain largo deposits of
tho same ore. Gold placers arc being worked at a good profit on
Wild Horse anil Kerry Creeks, while
many excellent copper prospects exist
in various parts of thc district.
Large bodies of iron ore have a1*-0
been discovered within a very few
miles of tlie city.
TIMBER
Cranbrook is the metropolis of the
timber industry of South Eastern
British Columbia. Throughout the
district there are vast quantities of
pine, fir and tamarac assuring an unlimited supply for many years to
come. There arc between twenty-
live and thirty saw mills in the district, some of them within a mile ol
the city limits.
RAILWAYS
Cranbrook is the principal divisional point of tbe Crows Nest i'ass
branch of the Canadian Pacific railway. Here arc located thu ollice of
thc divisional superintendent, round
houses and machine shops. A branch
line runs eighteen miles north to
Marysville and  Kimberley.
INDUSTRIES
Many industries are established in
or near the city, Two up-to-date
sash and dour factories are located
just outside thc city limits, au
iron foundary, a brewery, a soda
water factory and two printing establishments are doing business in
th*? city, whilst at Marysville, fifteen
miles distant is the smelter of the
Sullivan Group Mitring company. Excellent brick and lire clay abounds in
several nearby localities and no
doubt brick yards will be established
iu the near future.
WATER,     LIGHT     AND     TELEPHONES
Excellent water at a pressure of
oue hundred pounds to thc square
inch Is furnished by the Cranbrook
Water Supply company, and electric
light and telephone servioe ol the
best kind is to he had at reasonable
rates trom the Cranhiook Electric
Light Company and the East Kootenay telephone lines. The whole district is connected with Cranhrook by
lung distance phones.
CHURCHES
Tliere are live churches in Cranbruok. The Human Catholic, the
Church of England, thc Presbyterian,
thc Methodist and the Baptist. Tbu
Salvation Army also have a post in
lhe city.
SCHOOLS
The educational facilities aro as
perfect as the board of school trustees can make them. None but well
experienced teachers are engaged on
the s-lalT. Although the school
buildings are large they will have to
lie Increased in si/e iu tlic near future, owing to the number of ciuiureii
a Wending,
SOCIETIES
A large number of fraternal societies bave lodges in Cranhrook. The
Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of
Pythias, Orangemen, Eagles, Owls
and all thc railway orders are represented.

loss to themselves, and devoted their
energies to the alievcation ol the sufferings nf Uie people from Fernie,
who were within our city gate.
Many men, who never saikl a word,
will foot bills, which have been contracted in aid of the Fernie sufferers,
us huge as other people who are de-
mending pav from the relief committee.
What a Godsend it was that the
(ire whieh threatened Cranbrook did
uot burn this city, thus giving the
citizens of this town the opportunity
to render prompt nil and assista-nee
to her sister eity.
No rivalry has Ihere been between
any of the'Canadian Western provinces or tho Northwestern States n.s io
thy promptness ol extending relief to
Fernie. All there seemed to be was
a spirit of "Mow much can we do and
how quickly ean we do it."
Gcorgo Pedlar, of the, Fernie Flee
Press, was in town Tuesdav and says
that evervbiwly is busy and the town
is (piiel.lv rebulldiugl u a temporary
way.
Ferine will he all right*. You don't
need to worry about that town.
Many representatives nf safe firms
were on tlw ground early to supervise
and witness the opening of the different safes, and those who were pre

The management of the St. Eugene mine put a number of the Fernie

An incident, that came under tho
11--raid's cibserv.itinn happened on
th>- first train intu Crnnbrook from
Fernie on the eventful Sundav morning, Augusl 2nd. Nil sooner had tho
train left Fertile than Die cook mi
the dining ear and his stuff set to
work and before Wardnci was reached
every woman atid child on the Irain
bad been supplied with hot buttered
■toast and tea. Further, to show
tlte splendidly humane spirit of the
employes ol the dining ear service
the [oil-owing sequel lo the incident is
worthy of record. Two members of
the Cranbrook relief committee, who
hold none to Fernie during lbe nighl
lifter the women and children bad all
been attended to. asked one nf Ihe
waiters whether he could give them -a
cup  of  tea.      "Sure,"   replied the
waiter   and forthwith produced      it,.
One of tiie Cianbrook men tendered
the waiter a dollar, by way of a
tip, but he would not accept it. "Any

An Instance of where loss by the
Fernie lire hit hard was the case nf
an English miner who, by careful living lor lour years, bad accumulated
enough to tully pay for his homo. Tlie
property, without ibe land, was
worth $1700. Only a few du>s before the- lire he and his wife hml decided to have their home insured on
the next pay day. Like manv others they lost everything and their
four years work huve nothing to
show.
.1. Neilsuii, of the C.P.H. Tele-
graph service, did most excellent,
work at the key, both in the Cranbrook ollice and at the lempnrurj
olhee in Fernie, at which .latter he
worked for .several days. There is
uol a better operator in the country than Mr. Neilson and the company wero lucky to have hini iu this
district, during the lime of emergency.
Albert Mutft, manager of the Fernie
brewery, has gone to Spokane to
purchase material's aud plant for the
new brewery at Fernie. It will be
remembered that at the time of the
fire the brewery company had decided
to build a new brewery and a quantity ol the building material was on
the ground at the time. This, luckily, was not injured in any way and
by having everything needed shipped
in at once Mr. Mutz ex|H*ets to be
turning out his excellent pro-duct
within three months.
George E. Booth, secretary of tlie
Seattle Commercial club, in his -wire
to mayor Tubfrte, ol Fernie, did not
use any more words than necessary
but at the same time expressed
everything in the sentence; ''How

'Un* saving of llosmer means a
great deal for the CP.lt., as nearly

coke on January 1st next, when the
greement with the Crows Nest Pass
Coal company, whieh has so far prevented the C.P.R. from going into the
production of coal in that region expires. The fact that, the plant and

•latter, because it released the somewhat congested state of this eity.
I Them was a threatened strike of
carpenters at Fernie last' Friday, but
better judgment prevailed, the men
seeing that the present is no time for
matters of ibis kind to binder      tho
| world ol tho rebuilding ol Fernie.
I tine man in Cranbrook who has
i said noi hi us but who has, metaphorically speaking, sawn wood, is C.
Iliitigcrford Pollen. Mr. Pollen got
nut his own camping outfit, pitching
his tints in Ihe Catholic chnreh yard
land supplying blankets and all things
f necessary. |
Two girls, working in a certain es-
lablishment in Fernie, bought some
photographs on ihe morning ol the
lire from a traveling photographer. I
Not having the cash they paid for
the photos from the till, putting in
their l.O.U- for the amount. Tho
photos were burned but the l.O.l.Vs
were in the safe.
Joseph Sarvis, as a member of the
housing committee, was a complete
and unqualified success.
The     Rev, Taylor,   ol the Baptist
were handled entirely by him and
that is synonymous with saving thev
were well handled.
The Rev. Flewelling was hard at it
from morning to night. At the Central office, at t-he rink, among Unpeople and wherever a useful man was
wanted there he was to be found.
Dr. Miles proved himself an executive officer of great ability and the
way in which he handled the housing
committee, of which he was chairman, was commented on hj a great
many .people. The doctor worked
very hard indeed and his work is
thoroughly appreciated.
.1. F. M. Pinkham, manager of the
Imperial Bank, worked day after
day, doing all that mortal man eould
do for the comfort ol the sufferers.
As treasurer of the relief committee
he was the right man in the right
place, his tiuaneial training being
most useful.
W. D. Hill placed the upstairs    of
his furniture store at the disposal of

Mayor J. P. Fink left his business

Father Tavernier, nf Fernie, relates
some harrowing incidents of tlie bolo-
i-aiist through which the Fathers passed, the principal of which was the
flghl to save the Holy Eucherist from
lbe church and the saving ol their
home, and during whieh Father Meis-
seili* was bully burned, Tiie church
and everything iu it with the exception nl the Eueherisl was destroyed,

Nelson News: It would be unfair to
many to attempt to enumerate those
who have done good work in conncc
tion with the Fernie relief efforts,
ior many who havo performed their

One of thc most excellent of the
arrangements made by the Cranbrook
committee was the svstem adopted
to have the best of milk fnr the babies. The dining car department of
the C.P.R., with great consideration, placed their ice house at the
disposal of the enmm nee in whieh
the milk was stored ns it arrived.
From there it was taken, as needed,
to the rink, where it was sierilizeii
and distributed iu the mothers. The
Misses Armstrong and Miss Proctor
had charge of Ihis department (it tbe
j start and they were helped by many
willing volunteers during the week.
One feature of the taking care of
lhe multitude, whieh hns been commented on on all sides, was the per-
bet organization elTeeted in such a
short time. A few hours weie sufficient' to form committees of all
kinds, which, unUer the leadership of

The people of Fernie have every reason to be thankful for the ready response to the appeals for aid, made
hy the various secret societies. H is
in times of distress that men arc
matle to feel that it is good to be
banded together for mutual help and
assistance.
Need for aid and systematic aid at
that is very apparent in Fcinie. It
is as certain as day follows night,
lhat lo insure those"in need getting
assistance and to prevent the grafter
from getting what the needy should
have, a first-class business man
should he employed, at any price
within reason, to handle the distribution of the aid fund at Fernie. lt
needs a man of the highest executive
ability to discriminate between the
needy and those who are "out for all
they ean get,"
ln times of distress the people are
willing to give nil aid that is necessary, "but they have no desire to be
"held up" for a single dollar for
purposes other than aid to sufferers.
It was almost impossible for any
of the refugees from Fernie. who
were taken care of iu Cranbrook, to
speak of the prompt action taken for
their relief by the people of this
eily, and other towns iu the district,
without tears in  their eyes.
The Herald cannot speak Ion highly
of the generosity shown by lhe hotel
men of "Cranbrook, Movie'and other
towns, in taking care of tbe Fernie
refugees as they arrived. When the
first call enme for assist mice every
room was thrown open, meals furnished atid no word as to price.
The ministers of Crunbrook and
the surrounding towns left their
religious duties and postponed all
meetings and devoted themselves to
practical Christianity and obeying the
instructions of the Master laid down
in the lirst four beatitudes.
It was pleasing lo nolo the touch
of humanity which characterized the
kindly greetings extended by the
Crunbrook people to tbe Fernie
people when Iho) met ou our streets.
The mothers ami the little children
were sure of a kindly word and a
cheering smile from overy passer by.
Willi very few exceptions Cranbrook's gnosis from Fernie, have
shown a very heartfelt appreciation
of what was done fur them, by expressing the desire lo dn all they
eould in return.
It is unfortunate that in times of
distress some few will charge an
enormous price for their services and
will graft in anv wav possible. Human nature is' ol ail kinds in this
woi'lri and in times like these the
bad will show up as well as the
good.
The Herald wants to take oft its
hat to the business men. They deserted their businesses, gave up their

THE LO.O.F. DID NOBLY
The day after the news of the Fernie disaster had becn received, F. E.
Simpson, past grand master of British Columbia, telegraphed for aid to
the Northwestern States and the
Western Provinces. The response
has been of such a character as to
show that (internal love is strong
when the clouds of sorrow overhang
the brethren. There was an ahsoluii
eliiiiinaCon of the international
boundary line, and tbe Odd Fellow?
from stales and provinces alike cheer-
fuilv contributed tn the relief fund of
fellow Odd Fellows. A speeial
neetiu; was held al the hall
'ranhumk nml a special committee
.vas tippoitfleil with Harry White as
chairman and William Harris as sec-
retai v-lieasurer. The funds, as
fast as they were received hy Past
Grand Master Simpson, were turned
over to Secretary Harris and remittal bj 1 irn lu Ihe Fernie Odd Fcl
lows! A special meeting of the
eommiliee was held and immediate
relief given to those members in the
lown.
