Completely Destroyed.

The growing young town of Michel, n
coal mining center n few miles east of
Hemic, was almost completely wiped
out by fire Monday afternoon.
From the meagre information obtainable at this time, it appears ihat the
fire originated in Ihe flit across the
river from the town, where ground was
being cleared for the erection of new
cottages by tbe coal company, and
spread from that point on up the river,
crossed, aud then burned down the opposite side to the (residence portion.
In a very shot t time, and before the citizens of the town were aware tbat the
fire had reached their side of the river, a
house on the outskirts of tbe town was
in flames, aud although heroic efforts
were made without avail tu stop the
flames at this point, the fire was rapidly
com mu meat ed to the more thickly populated portion of the town, aud before
tbe flames were finally extinguished, 24
bouses were burned to tbe ground.
The buildings were all frame structures,
built closely together, ami several narrow escapes from loss of life are reported, while in numerous instances the inmates escaped without even .sufficient
Mrs. John Fraser, who came to Cranbrook the next day, nnd whose husband

Michel, in speaking of the lhe, said ili.it
their liouse was one of the first to go,
and that they lost everything, as Mr.
Fraser's store contained a vast amount
of explosives, which it was necessary to
bury, and be could devote no time to
the saving ot bis own property.
The immense new tipple just completed by the coal company, although in a
blaze in several places, was saved after
much hard work, and IheC. P. R station owes its existence today to one of
the locomotives which threw a continuous stream of water on the building.
The saving of the depot wus tbe direct
means of saving a number of residences,
which are clustered around It.

were destroyed by tbe tire, are being

The Lethbridge Hoys Complain til Roughness

The last issue of the Lethbridge News
contained n very complete wtiteup of the
lacrosse match iu ihis city last week between the Lethbridge uud Cranbrook
teams, in which lhe Lethbridge boys,
while speaking in the most Ilitleting
manner of the treatment received while

On our train we met C. P. Hill, the
iron magnate of Kitchener. Charley
has just returned from a vacation of
pleasure, and il would do a stoic good to
hear him talk about his experiences.
•'Say, boys," said the irreslstable, "after
chasing over the hills iu tbe Kootenays
for 10 years, eating bacon ami beans, it
was quite a chauge to hit the trail for
the effete east, and play up against civilization for awhile. And mnybe you
think I didn't go against the game good
and strong. I told my old dad when I
left home 18 years ago, I would never
come back until I bud 150,000 and was a
32 degree Mason. Well, the old lad was
glad to see me, I tell you, and he thinks
I am it, now. I visited New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and spent some
time iu Florida, and made a short trip
to |the old country. 1 put up at the
Waldorf-Astoria in N :w York, aud got
right into the bunch. Attended grand
opera, had my automobile every morning, and lived like a prince. Aud speaking of a priuce, I was fortunate enough
to make a good friend in Washington
while calling at the German embassy,
and through her courtesy I was given
every privilege when Prince Henry visited the United States. I dined on the
German yacht, aud attended the big
banquet given in the prince's honor in
New York. No, I guess I wasn't a
peach right in the center of the fruit
basket. At Washington the treasury
otlicials did the grand by uie, and I had
au opportunity to see how Uncle Sam
handles his great volume of money.
While there, I was offered a nice position at $5000 a year, and traveling expenses, but declined. I gave a dinner in
Washington to United States Senator
Clarke and a few more millionaires—
had eight meu around the table worth
from one million up. Clarke told me
that be guessed his revenues were the
largest the last year of any man living.
Money is easy for any investment except in llritish Columbia, and you can't
find a dollar for use here, The government has killed the province 111 the
money centers, and lhe Lord knows
when there will ben change." Mr. Hill
was asked about the irou situation and
the rumor of the steel trust taking hold.
"It's all hot air. There is nothing in it
at present. That talk looks like a boost
for some of the neighboring claims. I
am going to do the assessment on my
claims and hike out for a year." The
train reached Creston, and Mr. Hill took
himself, and the latest llroadwav clothes
into the woods of the junction town.

James Cronin, wife and boy were on
the train enroute to Nelson for a day or
two. He spent lhe winter in California
with his family, and is back in Moyie
getting the St, Kugene in shape, although there is no prospect of operating
the property anywhere near soon. A
few years ago Mr. Cronin rode into Rast
Kooteuay ou a cayuse, and it was a poor
cayuse at that. Through a fortunate
combination of circumstances, good
Irish shrewdness, knowledge of his business nnd a big stock of energy, he lauded himself at the head of the St. Eugene

Elko Will Cross Bats With Cranbrook on Next Saturday
Last Saturday wns the occasion of a
unique event in the sporting history of
Bast Kootenay in the shape ofthe fust
cricket match ever played in lhe district. The teams that engaged ill the
match were captained by C A. Cock
aud A. W. McVittie and represented
players born In the mother country and
Canada respectively. Apart from this
distinction the game had an added interest, inasmuch as the principal elements of the two teams were distinct—
the one team being composed of cricketers and the other of baseball players.
Speculation was rife as to whether tb e
superior catching aud fielding of the
baseball players would offset tbe advantage the old country players possessed
in past experience and thorough knowledge of the game. It was hardly to be
expected that it would but it certainly
came very close to it, the score showing
but 13 runs in favor of lhe old countrymen.
The game was a most enjoyable one
and tht day perfect cricket weather.
Cloudless sky, clear light ami hot sun.
tempered by cool breezes—all conditions
under which cricket is enjoyable—were
present. To the spectators, possibly,
especially those |not understanding the
fine points, the game was slow, but
there were lively moment, notably
"Baldy" Morris' fine slide to safely iu
the first innings of the colonial team,
That player gave a fine nil around exhibition of cricket, hitting vigorously, running judiciously and bowling with great
success. He waa nwny the best player
on the ground, his bowling uud batting
being of grent assistance to his side.
Few errors were made on either side and
the only chances lost were hard ones
Takeu all in all it was n good display of
England's national game and it is to be
hoped the begiuuiug of further exhibitions of this pastime. Following is the

Wurk of Relief Progressing in a Favorable
Very liltle progress has been made the
past week iu recovering lhe bodies of
the victims of the recent Ferine disaster
.(though no effort bus been spared by
lhe company to do so. The work is
handicapped by the Immense quantity
of rock which fell from tbe roof, and
winch bus completely blocked the way
into some of the rooms. Up to date
about 124 bodies have been recovered
while over .1 dozen are known to still be
iu the mine.
The work of contributing money
toward the relief fund is still progressing favorably and up to date nearly f 20-
000 have been secured Ior this purpose.
At a board of trade meeting held in
Cranbrook lust week a committee was
oppoii ted to collect money for the sufferers, and the following list, which will
be materially increased iu tbe next few
days, shows that the committee has not
been idle:

An aggregation known as the New

and Friday nights, and played to fairly
well filled houses. The show consisted
of specialties throughout, some of which
were above the average, the most worthy
of mention being the acrobatic work of
Prof. Arnaldo, ami the Juggling niul bicycle riding by two other members of
the company. The principal feature of
the entertainment, however, was a troupe
of performing dogs, which brough forth
much applause from the audience, and

High Water al Lethbridge.
George Uremner returned from Lethbridge Friilay, accompanied by Mrs.
Uremner and little daughter Bessie, who
have been visiting relatives there for
the past few weeks. Mr. Uremner says
the recent high water iu the Belly river
created an immense am lunt of damage
around Lethbridge, and that (he loss in
property and stock will amount to
thousands of dollars, and will be a severe blow to the ranchers living in the
bottom lands near the town, as some of
them not only lost their houses and
farm buildings, but every head of stock
they possessed.
The Herald bas always maintained
ihat for diversity of minerals and natural resources, the district lying along the
line of the Crows Nest railway cannot
be equalled on the American continent,
and tbat all thai is needed to bring Ibe
riches of this country lo the front, is
capital, judiciously invested. It is gen
eralty conceded that, compared with
other mining countries, the development
of ihis section bas been remarkably
slow, notwithstanding the fact that In
possessing the iniuieusecti.il fields of tbe
Crows Nest Pass Coal company antl the
rich Btlver-lead deposits of the St. Kugene. North Star ami Sullivan mines,
this district has gained a reputation
which is world wide. But, as a rule, legitimate propositions o! sufficient sire
can generally find capital waiting to be
invested, aud in the following article,
takeu from the Nelson News, it would
seem that the sigus ol the time* are
surely pointing tbis way:

Proctor admitted that the bad been successful in the matter o! disposing of bis
Cial and iron holdings at 8pnfnt.be
figure, but pending the completion of
the transaction be did uot feel warranted in unking public tbe details.
With respect lo tbe Biairmore coal
fields, however, be had no objection to
announcing lb.it work Upon a considers-
ble scale will be undertaken at once.
Engineers are now ou the ground for
the purpose of making a thorough examination of tbe property in order to
ascertain the extent of the various seams
and to estimate the coal available for
coking and steam purposes. Tbe result
of their examination will doubtless be
the Immediate establishment of coke
ovens on a considerable scale, aad the
shipment of steam coal. All tbe preliminary tests of the coal) both for coking and i-team purposes, have been of a
highly satisfactory nature, and, by some
of the priucipai experts, the coke already produced has been pronounced
equal to any on tbe market.
There is, however, much work of a
development nature to be done and
diamund drilling aud tunneling will be
proceeded with to prove ihe property,
and before long Blalrmore may become
as important a point as Fernie.
Mr. Proctor says there O no difficulty
in interesting eastern capitalists in legitimate enterprises that are sufficiently
large, but for capital for prospects, and
for mining on a small scale especially
under tbe preseut conditions, a halt appears to have been called.
Mr Proctor and his associates, Messrs.
V. Hyde Baker and R. K Fishburne,
are to be congratulated if tbey have been
successful in adding anotlier industry
lo Koolenays string, and the progress of
the eastern capitalists will be watched
with Interest.

Wheu W. H. Bullock-Webster, acting
as commissioner, was iu Feiuie, there
was a desire on the part ol some ui the
officials to have the Inquiry postponed
on account of the mine disaster. Mr.
Bullock-Webster staled that since the
witnesses hud beeu subpoenaed it would
greatly inconvenience tbe public to
adopt such a policy, bul that since it
might be better fur Constable Barnes io
rem a iu in Fernie, be would continue tbe
work, uud when nil of the sessions had
been held, he would return to I'ernie
and have the testimony read to Mr.
Barnes, so that anything be might desire
to offer, *lie would be afforded the opportunity. This arrangement was perfectly satisfactory to Constable Darned
and Government Agent Armstrong, ami
they so assured the commissioner.
Ou the following day a supplement pf
the Feruie Free Press was Issued and tbe
following article appeared'.
Considerable surprise is  expressed al
the action or Commissioner W. H. Bullock-Webster in requiring Chief of Police
Barnes to leave town at such a lime aa
this to attend the  sittings of the license
commissioners at Klko. in view ol the
slate of excitement bordering on frenzy
which prevailed up lo yesterday, oue
would have thought even in the eyes of
a special commission tbe importance uf
maintaining the peace and protecting
the citizens of Fernie from the fury engendered by certain aspects of the ler-
rible calamity which has overtaken the
town would have loomed up larger than
the petty interests Involved iu a whiskey
enquiry. Probably the commissioner
and those octing with him were nol
aware how near llie town came lo a riot
on Sunday nighl, and how it whs only
prevented by a stronger personal influence than even the strung arm of the
law. Knowing the facts. Chief Barnes
consulted some of the leading clilzeua,
and was practically told that be would
not be allowed lo leave during llle present crisis, and so wisely decided lo remain at what is obviously bis post of
duty, whatever the consequences may
be. For this decision we applaud him,
and he deserves the thanks of the community. We believe that before the
present crisis is past be will also receive
the thanks of those who would have sent
him elsewhere.
Why this should have been done is a
mystery. It is a reflection ou Mr. Bul-
lock-Webster and places him iu a most
unfortunate light before the public.
Acting in his judicial capacity, naturally it would hardly be proper for him to
make a reply to Buch a contemptible assault upou his judgment and integrity;
and with those wbo know him, a reply i -
entirely unnecessary, The Free Press
has gone a long ways to cast a slur at a
good officer and a gentleman, aud it
owes au apology to the public aud to
Mr. Bullock-Webster.

An   Eastern   financier   Takes   a   Roseate
View of Future,
Mr.T. 1*. Coffee, vice-president of the
Dominion Permanent Loan Co,, of To-
onto, and one of the leading capitalists
of l-.aatem Canada, visited Oram!
Forks, B, C , recently on his annual
tour of Inspection. Ilis company'has
.-.tensive investments in this province,
especially In the Boundary district.
Making his headquarters In Grand
Forks, Mr. Coffee, since his arrival in
the west, has made visits to Republic
antl to Phoenix for the purpose of per'
sonally familiarizing himself with mining conditions, and In speaking to a
ree Press correspondent be said ,
"I am connected with financial institutions, which have been malting Investments iu British Columbia for the
past twelve years. Beginning In a small
way and at a period when the latent
possibilities of tite province were not
reaH/.ed in the east, we have watched
your amazing development with no Utile
interest and year by year have constant
ly increased our holdings. It gives me
pleasure to state that our Investments
have all been eminently satisfactory.
My associates have adopted the policy
of visiting the province annually In
order better to be able Lo watch the
tread of development. This policy lias
been steadily kept tn view and will be
maintained in tbe future. All things
consldeied, 1 have reached the conclusion that no better Investments in Can.
ada can be made than those offered at
iliis moment by llritish Columbia, whose
growth and progress during the past
live years hss been simply phenomenal
and is unsurpassed by any ol the older
provinces, There Is nnliiulied capital
available In the east but considerable
missionary work has yet to be accomplished before absolute confidence in
the character of your Investments li
secured, Tbe effects of Indiscriminate
wild-catting or mining properties Inct
denial to new mining regions were decidedly felt In eastern cities for several
years and produced a re-action which Is
only now beginning slowly to disappear.
It will take some time before confidence
Is fully re-established, bul I lock forward to
A New And Brighter Era
as soon as the merits of your legitimate
mining propositions become more wide'
ly known, An Intelligent appreciation
of the mining Industry especially of
Southern British Columbia, alroad)
exists In a limited circle and this knowledge is bound 10 become more generally diffused.
"From personal observation I have no
hesitation In declaring that mining intelligently carried out by men who know
the mining business can be prosecuted
with as little uncertainty as any other
enterprise and wllh the added advant
age of earning large profits. It Is quite
clear, however, that ample capital is
required for the treatment of the low
grade ore deposits of lhu boundary. I
was quite Impressed by the recent article ol Dr. LedOUX, of New York, dealing with tinning conditions in this district, The publicity given his views
wlil probably result In thc inversion of
considerable capital in this direction,
I reason that If he has convinced mc
that mining In the Boundary Is being
curie I 1.11 very prolitably, he will be
equally successful in convincing others.
Indeed, after going through the Granby
mines at Phoenix und witnessing tie
extensive operations In progress there
an .veil as thc
Enormous Ore Reiervcs,
I feel I can speak with no little authority. Those mines arc certainly among
tne largest In the world and ll Is spi a.--
ent ihat nowhere else is the cost of
mining reduced to so low a com. 1
walked around various blocks of solid
ore, each an acre in extent, and I saw-
one width of SCO feet and a length of
7011 feet. This is undoubtedly the largest stope In the world aud solid ore wai
extracted from It; besides the width of
the ore body has not yet beeu determined as one of the sides of tbe slope Is
sllll in ore. Tbe mining of ore on the
surface In vast open quarries was one
of the most novel sight*} 1 ever witnessed, and I was surprised when Informed
by A. C. Plumerfelt, the assistant general manager, that a contract for ihe
extraction of five million tons of ore
from the surface had just been award
ed Porter Bros., a firm of railway cor.-
tractors. Cheapness of mining, the
self-fluxing character of the ore and
other factors make the conditions almost Ideal,
"Now thai railway communication
hat been  established,    Republic   pro
mises to be a camp of great importance.
Oi.OI mv recent viilt 1 hid no conception of the richness ami extent of its
ore bodies. The Mountain Lion Is developed to a depth of "Ml feet and has,
I was informed, 83,000 tons of ore
liroken down In the stopes ready for
shipment, Another Instance of exten-
slve development is the Qullpi which
h; s ;,;i,(iihi tons of ore blocked out as
well as 3,000 tons of ore broken down
In the slopes, Without enumerating
the list of mines I might add tint thc
Black Tall can steadily ship 75 tons a
day, and that the camp without having
regard to the ore already mined, Is now
in a position 10 maintain shipments ol
from 300 to 3S0 tons of ore dally to the
Cranby smelter at Grand Forks,"—Winnipeg Free Prea.

Inspired by au Inquiry from "ihe en
i lightened Inhabitants of Sioux City, la,
! IT. S, A." the British public Is Indebted
I King Edward would bear 11 all his royal
' ami aristocratic titles were shorn from
lilm. The Inq ilry was due to a discussion In a social company In this town.
The London paper admits It is a hard
question, but proceeds to answer. It
! finds tbat dymastlcally, King Kdward
' belongs to tbe Hinoverlan line of
Urtinswiclt-Luxenbourg, which came
in tin-; throne ot I'.agUntl with fleorge I
in 1714, The family name was Guelph,
and to that family have belonged thc
English rulers since.
Hut the c.ielph family cannot give Its
name to I; Ovarii, His mother was a
Cuelpb, but his father was of the house
of Saxony. The family name of his
father, Prince Albert, would presumably have been Mr. Albert Wettln. The
present king would therefore be Mr.
Allien El ward Wettln, if he should
cease to be a sovereign and compelled
to drop all his dignities and lind his
funlly name. But, as the Lindoi
paper (Modern .Society) sagely observed
his family has been In the king business
and therefore not In need of surname,
sines a period so remote that It goes
bank centuries before surnames, as we
uow know them, were used at all. In
answering the Inquiry, the London piper says that tbe king would be Mr,
Wettln If he should become an American citizen; and It naively, "wonders If
Sioux City Is anticipating this result as
a result cf the great Morgan combine."

As to Advertising.
.Marysvllle Tribune
Advertising has long since Ceased to
an experiment with the modern business man who desires to keep up with
the procession and obtain a fair share
nf business, but this from one who has
had experience nevertheless Is worth
"It Is needless to say that persistent
advertising is a great aid In building up
and maintaining a business and giving
prestige to a store. It keeps the store
aud Us goods constantly before the eyes
of the people and after a time the accumulative effect Is astonishing. Regularity aud persistency form the basis
of all successful advertising.
"The merchant who orders his advertising in the paper when he feels good
and orders It out when his mood changes
will never reap much benellt from his
work. 1 ni* state of a man's liver Is not
a safe barometer by which to regulate
expenditure or enterprise, Tbe merchant should advertise on principle and
not form caprice. He should not feel
that he ls doing lhe proprietor of his
paper a 'avor every time he hands him
an advcrlisement to print. In very
many cases the obligation ls all the
other way, even tho' the dealer pays a
good price for tne space.
"A good newspaper Is more deserving of respect than almost any other
Institution In a modern community.
The work it can do In the upbuilding of
a town or a business ls almost beyond
calculation. It should be regarded
more as a public Institution than a private enterprise, and should receive the
hearty support and co-opcratlon of
every business man.

The tilth am ual meeting of the shareholders of the Crow's Nest 1'as** Coal
company was 'ielil in Toronto on March
The net pi. lit nf the year after paving all opt-utlitg expanses and all
charges nf every hind, amounted to
$807,818 30, After paying a dividend
al the rate of ten i<>*r cent per annum
B balance of !p.s If.' SO was carried forward to the credit uf profit and loss.
This company's assets are llielr coal
mines and the townsile of I'ernie. four
years ago this company had no transportation facilities and their stock sold
as low as eleven cents per share. Tt
lav their stock Is selling at $00.00.
THE SIMILKAMEEN VALLEY COAL COMPANY 1.'iniied assets aie Coal Mines,
Timber, Water Cower, Agricultural and Horticultural Land, City Water Works, Electric
Llghl Plant und the Townsite uf Ashnola,
surrounded by the following resources:
llold, Capper, Silver, Lead, Iron, Lime, Fire
Clay, Platinum, and a Fine Stock Raising
Country, and it Is the smelting center of
the Similkameeu Valley with a climate
all that could be asked. Today you
can secure an option ou this company's
stock by paying ten cents per share
down and ten cents per month until
fully paid, with non-forfeiture clause.
This price Is subject to a twenty-five
cent advance without notice, or as soon
as transportation is assured. The present price Is $1.10 per share, Dj not
wait until it is too late, but get In on
the ground floor and make a handsome
profit. A purchaser of 100 shares now
may gain a profit of SS.ooo.oo, Crow's
Nest shares as an example. This would
be a fair profit on an Investment of $10
per month for eleven months. We Invite tbe fullest inspection of the company's a Hairs by Intending purchasers.

Bill all these drawbuuks did not pro-

themselves. Nu outside capita] or

Money made in une venture wns freely und nt once embarked in another,
und the Investors were to bo found
working wiih pick and shovel In tlio
shaft or drift. Dut the lengths of t-tfo
rich old channels on both these
famous creeks which could be worked in this wny proved to be limited
to u few miles. Dolow a certain
point in each ruse, the "bed ruck"
wus found tu he ut so great n depth
that it was not possible to reach
through the loose nnd waler-satm*-*
itted materials filling the uld valley.
Thus the great yield of placer gold
became gradually reduced to comparatively modest proportions, nnd
up to thu recent discovery mining in
the Caribou district has been mainly confined to hydraulic workings, by
which pour ground is utilized nnd a
much larger quantity of material requires to ho removed to obtain a
given amount of gold.
Despite tin* fabulous sums obtained
in the Cariboo, exceeding in round
numbers $50,000,000, ii Is not recorded that many of the miners carried much of it With them when Ihey
left the country. The Intrinsic value of the gold cnn he measured by
conditions. Jinny of the miners
died of starvation, nnd at certain
periods those hardy adventurers, in
order to obtain food, were obliged
to give almost iis weight In gold.
