WHAT TIIK WORLD  SAVS.
The New York World made the
Fernie lire lhe subject ol a very excellent editorial. This article calls
particular attention to the fact that
all such, forest tires as destroyed Fernie are preventable. This lire is
said to have slatted among the
slas*hings of a lumber company and
(he world points out timt Ihey should
Ih* burned by the lumbermen after
being slripped from lhe trees. The
article winds up as follows: "Forest
rues iiie as preventable as typhoid
fever. When engines on forest railways are run hv electricity or have
spark arresters, when slashings an;
binned bv the men who make them,
and when sotting lire liy carelessness
or intent is severely punished, the
common forest heritage whieh man is
so shamefully wasting to make the
earth a desert will stand a hetter
chance."

RIBE STEVES DROWSED
THK    VICTIM      OF  A   CAPSIZED
CAXOE WHILE HI'NTING.
The community was shoe'ed last
Tuesday evening to hear of tbe death
by drowning of Rube Steves. ol
Frank. It seems that Mr. Steves
was duck shootinc with some friends,
on a large sloULih or lake near Stave-
ley, Alberta, which is ahouw half way
between N'anton and Macleod. Mr.
res was in a canvas canoe by
himself arid all that is I;nown is
that the canoe was washed ashore
and so was his hat. and although
every effort has been mnde. r.o trace
if the body has been fcnn-I. There
is no fiueslion but that Mr. Steves is
drowned. In the fall of lSf)8 Mr.
Steves came lo Cranbroot as .1 train
desnaichtT. built his home here and
settled d'-wn as a citizen of the
lown in its very youmz d.iys. In
1901, however, he was moved be the
C.P.R. to Hlairmore as a-ftent, but
-ff-ir,.* tin* pfissibilities of Fran'
resided from the C.P.R. and tuovod
to that town, where he b>ju-.'bi :> '
huiit a in*- hotel and engaged in the
hnsiness which he conducied until thr-
time nf his death. Anion;; other
eiiiernrises Mr. Steves huiit and ran
an hon-1 at Kundhrcck and also was
interested in a brick makinc plant 1
Frani*. Mr. Steves had mends
everywhere nlonz th'* Crow nnd. while
with the C.I'.K.. was one ol th<' most
popular oi.eralors as he was afterwards one of tbe best liked bote! men
on the line. Iimncdlati ly after the
Fra-nf* slide Mr Stevefl was one ol
ihe few who refused to leave the
lown, havini: faith that there was no
further damrer ar.d his stand encoiir-

FIRE.
It has heen welt said tbat Providence was nol only wise, but kind,
when .1 veil waa drawn over futurity.
The unexpected always happens. The
Pernio (Ire was unexpected and disastrous, but il carried its lesson with
It, aud one that will not he easily
forgi >t ten by 1 hose who had the
privilege of helping the sufferers. Oven
nt Hie risk of being aecusi-d of
preaching lay sermons, there are some
things that cannot he overlooked by
lhu most callous mind, lu lbe ordinary course of every-day business,
matters conn; up which cause individuals to differ. This difference of
opinion grows into a dislike of one
party for another, indeed sometimes
it goes further and a settled state of
"I've got no use for him" comes
about. It matters not what the subject of disagreement may have lieen:
business, religion, politics nr what
not, but t-he feeling of dislike for the
fellow man is there awl nothing seems
to heal the wound, or supposed
wound, unless something turns up to
bring out that latent "milk ot human
kiridness," which, after all, is in the
worn! of ns. The news nf ibe Fernie
fire iirached Cranhrook as "a. Imlt
from t-he blue," suddenly and without warning. What was the result?
Kvery man, overy woman and every
child, that was old enough iu under
lined, Burned to and did what they
•ouIdi and in lour short hours a system of organization was in force and
running that has, it is safe to say,
never been equalled in a small west-
n town. Nobody eared who was
who. No one said: "Are you an un-
ompromising Tory or a dyed-in-the-
wool Grit," "Are'you tho fellow who
did Ihis or that lo me," "Are you a
Catholic or a Protestant?" No.
Crnnbrook was as one composite bu-
;ian being working tor tbe a lev ia lion
d the suffering of others. During
he memorable week in which the
I-ernie refugees were our gues-ls one
•onlii see men working on tin- same
■oiiimitliH- who were hardly on speak-
ng terms hefore, and each working
Ailii ihe other in the friendliest mauler, In faet, there is no doubt but
that today there are men and women
,, for that matter, hi Cranbrook
ft'ho are friends on account of finding
iiieh other out and seeing the good in
uie another that week. There is
joud in ewiyone, there are things
i4i.il would do the community Rood it
revealed in the brains of eaeh and
.•very one. ami ii is .' I'itv tlml these
ideas cannot be always given ex|ires-
don tt> tot the common weal. Be*
■muse John Jonos does not like Tom
Smith is no reason thai John Jones
Imuld nol attend lho Hoard o\ Trade,
if which Tom Smith is ■ member,
uni express bis views which maj be
mosl valuable to Ibe cnmmuiiitv al
Inrgo and Incident ly nun lead bim fo
'.now lhe good qualities of Tom
Smith ami perchance lead lo a restoration of friendship. The Penile tire
taughl us what harmony of purpose
can do, and if il will onlv leave n
loilinu of its after math In the gen-
eml everyday life of our eity. thc
lesson of the Pernio fire will nol have
iietn in vain. And just think what
iiiit-bt bo accomplished for our town
iml district if ail  the people coniin-
u d to work in such harmony for
.•verv movement thai promised advancement and greater prosperity foi
Cranbrook nml South Kast Kootenay.
Premier McHride made tbe stalo-
neiit at a Conservative picnic at Syd-
*ie) last week that neither hv> or his
■owrutuent had ever discriminated
itgnlnsl any district in Ibis province
ili.it was represented bv a Liberal.
ft will he noticed tbat Mr. McHride
went a long way from Cranbrook to
make this statement, ft is a notorious facl tbat Uie Conservatives have
■aid thai if Mr. Harvey had been
elected this district would have got
what it asked for, hut since the
people saw fit to elect Dr. King Ihey
musl take their medicine. 'lhe
neople have taken it in the shape of
; measly appropriation of $"»,ft00 for
i district thnt turns over to the government a revenue of about ■Miui.iuni
nnually.
Tlie Victoria Colonist compares the
•ipoeoh made hy Mr. Templeman in
Iranbrook wit-h that of Mr. McHride.
iml said that if Mr. Templeman has
the right to make political speeches
n Crnnbrook ihen no one should complain of the fact that Mr. MeBride
did the same thing. The people of
Oranbrook regardless of party, ben-
lered Mr. Templeman a compliinen-
lary banquet, anld from the beginning
In lhe end of the function there was
not one word of n partisan nature.
Most nf the speakers were Conscrva-
livos but they talked business and
not politics, as did the Liberals that
spoke on that occasion. When Mr.
McHride was bore it. was announced
that lu* would bold a non-partisan
meeting and Hie people filled the
opera house as a compliment to Uic
nremicr of the province. After the
crowd had gathered, aside from the
speech made by Dr. Young, tin* minister of education, the meeting was
turned into a red hot Conservative
eampaign gathering, both the premier
and Mr. Bowser saying all and what
Ihey could to lay the foundation for
Conservative success in the coming
Dominion campaign. That is lhe
difference between the two meetings,
but that will make no difference with
Hie Colonist. The preliminary cam
palgn is now on and Conservative
speakers and Conservative newspapers
are apparently  willing to make    a
ind of an assertion that they m
i Iii uic will fool  the people.
In Vancouver they haul milk n
•twill in lhe sarno wagon. The bon
■if health in that city should •
busy,
Vou don't hear much these davs
about the wav Saskatchewan will
show bow the Liberals are losing ir
nowi-r atid influence. The stronfi ma*
■1'iitv eivon Premier Scott has rendered the election iu that province
uninteresting subject ol conversation
wilh Conservatives.
I.nlph Smith was foolish to debate
with n man like Hawthnrnthwa-il. No
man can gambol on a muck pile ami
come away clean.
The. people should take into consid*
•ration the proposal to build a city
building so as to be able to vide oh
tho matter Intelligently when the bylaw is presented. The Herald never
did think it was a good plan to unite
Aith the ororiticc in the construction
of .1 building, but at the time that it
was done it seemed to lie the    only
 use open.   Tbe Herald now believes
ihat il wuuld he well lo sell the
city's interest in the building back
to thc province and let the city have
i buildinn of its own.
There are enough Mind pins in
Spokane to start a packing house.
Crnnbrook    is doing    pretty   well
these days, and no one can notice .
retrograde movement.

HMBMDE VISITS FERNIE
FAILED TO    SATISFY   THE DEMANDS OF   THE PEOPLE
(The District Ledger.)
Hon. Richard MeBride, premier of
llritish Columbia, reached Fernie via
(1. N. R. on Tuesday noon, being
met by a select few of the-faithful.
A general meeting of the committee
to wait on bis honor was called for
.'1 p.m. at tbe Coal 'company ollice,
and without much ceremony laid the
pressing need of Fernie at this moment before the distinguished gentleman. The result* obtained were very
disappointing in the extreme and for
nil that was gained. Dick McBrido
might have saved himself the journey-
to Fernie. The ire of some of the
committee was rather warm, particularly so Messrs. 0. I.. Boynton,
general manager of the Elk Lumber
company anil F. H. Sherman, who
handled thc -premier without glores.
Heyond the rebuilding of tbe city
school and the provincial buildings
(which they are in dutv bound to
build) the government of this province will do nothing and this riding a
supporter of that government. What
do the voters think ol it and will
lliey forget all about It at the next
ejection?    We hope not.
Premier McHride said to the committee that in tnnkhi" n grant or
loan to Fernie at this instance would
lie setting a precedent hut when confronted with the statement by Frank
Sherman that his government bad
seen lil ti, grant $10,000.00 to the
San Francisco disaster, simply replied Ihal (hat was different being
lor inimtxliate necessity. Well, If the
l-oople of Fernie nre not sufferers in
Immediate necessity we would like to
sir some. To say that tho treatment we are receiving at provincial
hands is disgraceful and insulting- is
nutting It mildly. The Crows Nest
Pass Conl company nlone pay in a
royalty In tho McHride government of
sotneHiing like $10,0110.00 iter month,
not to speak of others, nnd yet when
wc Fernie people tire down and out,
•Ihey can't sis- lheir way clear to help
us.
Regarding r.tir local member, W. R.
Ross, we must say that we are sorry
lor hlm. Everviinc gctierallv, likes
llfllv lloss, hut'he has failed utterly
to liiake-hlmselt the power ho should

ability, but nn sand. Without- ' repeating Mr. Iloss' statement made in

W. K. Ross, M.P.P., when in town
the other day, in speaking of the relief fund nt Fernie said that at that
time it amounted to about one hundred and five thousand dollars. This
does not include about four thousand
dollars contributed especially for tlie
Odd Fellows nor other amounts for
tbe K. of P., Kagles and kindred
societies. Mr. Ross said tbat the
supplies now on hand were ample but
that the serious problem to be met by
the relief commitlee was arranging
homes for the people before thc advent
of cold weather. Various schemes
had been proposed, nnd it. was quite
probable, that the relief committee
would take sixty thousand dollars of
tbe fund and buv lumber and building
supplies to be distributed among thos*
who Were homeless and destitute
thiiK giving dhein nn opportunity to
build a home that would he a comfortable shelter at least for tbe winter months.

RAILWAY ACT CHANGED
T!ie following statement as to il:,
I result of ttie work of tlio railwaj
legislative) commit/tee during ilu* i.i*-'
session, has been issued bv J. Harvei
Hull:
Ottawa, Ont., July 22nd, 1808.
Hi o titers:
During the session of pailiamenl
just closed your iwis&tive-representative has bad the following questions
before tbe house.
An amendment to the Railway Act
in which we asked for the repeal ol
Section 4i6, This section reads as
follows:
"Kvery officer or servant of any
company and every person employed
by the company, who wilfully or
negligently violates sny by-law, rule
or regulation oi the company or its
directors lawfully made and in Force,
ur any order or notice of the ministers, or of the board, or of an inspecting enginoor, ol which o copy hai
been delivered tu him, or which bas
been posted up or open to bin inspection in some place where his work ot
his [fuiies, or any of them, arc to be
performed, if such viola Won cause-
Injury to anv person or to any property, or, although no actual injuries
occurs, exposes any person or any
property to the risk of such injury,
or lenders such risLi greater than it
would have heen without such violation, is guilty ot an offence, and shall,
iti ihe discretion of Uie court before
which the conviction Is had. and according as such court considers (he
offence proved to bo more or less
threat, be punished by fine or imprisonment or both.
2. No such fine shall exceed Folic
hundred dollars, and no such imprisonment shall exceed the term of
five years.
3. The company may, in all eases
under this section, pav Uiu amount ot
tbo penalty and costs, and recover the
same from lhe offender or deduct i'
from his sflinry or pay. .'J 13. VII.,
c fiS, s. 2!)6."'
This section has been the excuse for
many of the commitments during the
lust two years, and I am glad to he
able (o advise you that I wns successful in having tiie section repealed and
I sincerely hope that its repeal will
stop any unfair prosecutions in Uic
future
The brothers must not imaghio,
liowover, that prosecutions will cease
in cases ol carelessness which cause
loss of life. in this case vou will
eome under section 283 of the Criminal Code, which reads'
"Kvery one is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to two vears'
imprisonment who, by any unlawful
net, or hv any wilful omission or
neglect of duty, endangers nr causes
to lw endangered the safety ol any
person conveyed or being in or upon
n railway, or aids of assists therein.   55-511 V„ c. 23, s. 251."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. when he addressed the joint committee, who
asked for an amendment nf Section
115 of the Railway Act, last January, expressed the fear that the
amendment as suggested might have a
tendency to induce carelessness on
the part of the railwayman, which
woum jeopardize the safoty of lhe
traveling public. I sincerely In.po
thnt this Fear as expressed bv Mr
Wilfrid Laurier will not com*) true
See that it does not.
The minister of labor was nsKod
for an amendment to tbe Industrial
Disputes Act better known ns the
Lemieux Act, which would relieve
tho railwaymen from its application.
A great deal of correspondence passed
between us on (be subject which will
be handy for future references. Written areuments against the law were
submitted bv Bros, .fames Murdoch
f the H. of K. T„ ti. Campbell, of
(he O. R. T.j S. N. Herrv, of the
O. R. C, Ash Kennedv and W. ti.
Rest of the B. of L., E., in conjunction with my own. Manv strong
points were made by cacli of these
representatives of the men against
the law but without avail. The
minister refused to grant our re-
quest, so the law stands as it was a
year ago.
The telegraphers bad n bill intro-
luced asking for a law which would
Prevent anv operator working more
than etcht hours per day, but owing
to the lateness of the introduction,
and the fact that the government? bad
taken all tbe days of the wcej. for
overnment measures, we were unable
to get it through, but tho measure
has been well canvassed and, I bc-
ieve, has the support of tho ninjor-
ty of the house ami is 1 kely to suc-
iced at the next session.
Questions that have, been before the
Railwav Commission arc not all
settled.' The new code of rules nre
till under consideration by thc
board.
In respect to the memorial presented hy thc B. of R. T. the board arc
waiting for a report From their inspectors before making any order.
Tlio memorial presented by Ine
oint. committee, which represented
the B. of L. E., B. of L. F. & E.,
0. R. T. and O. R. ('.. and who met
in Ottawa January last, the board
has mnde one order and that is in
respect to witness fees when en-
Dloves are summoned to give evidence
before inspectors when holding investigations. This wns asked for
nwing to the fart that some of tbe
railwav companies had declined to
pav the men For their lost time while
attending these Investigations- I'"'
witness fee that von will l« able to
collect are lhe exi'lie-pier eourt allowances, which is $1.2*! nn day and
mileage if you nre at HmI expense.
In order to increase this ii will re-
uitire amendment to the Hallway Act.
giving the hoard power to pay a higher rate.
The remainder of (lie questions arc
still under consideration hy iw
board.
All of which Is respectfully stiii-
mltted, and with best wishes.
I remain, yours Frnternaliy,

and fled the country with another
woman. He was finally captured at
Detroit, brought back to Quebec
where he was convicted and sentenced
to death.
Every possible appeal was- made   tn
tho   government to    commute    the
death sentence, but in vain, and   had
the law had its way he would    hav
been hanged today. '
Ilis Itoyal Highness, Prince George
of Wales, is the Cause of saving Ho
chette's life. During thc Prince's
visit In Quebec he visited the seminary al St. Joachim here, dining with
the priests, among tliem being some
t-l (lie faculty of Laval University.
It so happens thnt upon the Laval
faculty is a man who married Rochet te's sister, and it was whispered
to the Prince during the course ot
the entertainment that they would
deem it a great favor if lie would
intercede for thc murderer. This, it
appears, he did, cabling his father,
the Krag, and thc sentence of death
was commuted to one of imprisonment for life.
Kochettc was yesterday brought up
from Quebec, and is now safely housed in St. Vincent's de Paul penitentiary, where he must pass the rt
main der of his days.
FERNIE'S DEHT.
O. O. Buchanan, supervisor of
Dominion lead bounty, speaking
Rosslnnn nf tlie Fernie rtinaster. stated he had returned from East Kootenay, where he left P. C. T. O'Hara,
dominion deputy minister of trade
and commerce, who was in the city
on August 5th with Mr. Buchanan.
Messrs. O'Hara and Buchanan visited
tho mines here, thc smelter ot the
Consolidated company nt Trail, the
Blue Bell mine on Kootenay lake and
the St. Eugene mine and concentrator
at Movie. Mr. O'Hara became au
enthusiast In regard to mining belore
he left Moyie. From there he went
to Ferbie in order to see the scene
of the great conflagration that swept
over that city and vicinity. "The
Hlue Hell mine,'- said Mr. Buchanan
"is iu splendid condition and is out-
putting one hundred tons of raw ore
4 dny and is getting goml quality of
lead concentrates by running it
through its mill. There is a vast
quantity of ore in the Blue Bell,
tt is tow grade, to be sure, but it is
one of the largest lead mines in the
province, second only to the St. Eugene. It is owned bv thc Canadian
Metals company, and' S. S. Fowler,
M.E., is in charge of It."
Mr. Buchanan- in speaking about tbe
disaster experienced by Fernie said
that ho thought the government
should come to the aid of that city
by assuming its indebtedness. All of
the respurces of the city have been
destroyed by fire, except the realty
which it owns, and, ns a consequence
of this, it is without much credit
with an indebtedness ot about
(50,000 against it. In order to provide itself with a fire department,
city ball and other necessaries ot a
municipality, it must borrow money.
Now the question naturally arises
where can such capital be procured for
a city already in debt, with many of
its citizens in not the best financial
condition? One way out ot tho difficulty which environs the municipality
is for thc provincial government to
assume the present indebtedness. This
would make a clean slate and what
money is actually needed can he borrowed as the city's capacity in thc
way of meeting any obligations in
tli.* [tilure is a sullieiently g<rod risk
borrow enough money to put it on
its feet again. Mr. Buchanan says
he thinks the province would be
justified, under the circumstances,
iu assuming Fern te's municipal obligations,

RANCH MEN TAKE NOTICE
IRRIOATION MADE EASY
Tlie Itife ttynlratilio engine is coit-
s-tnu-leil upon aif entirely new tl|ipl.-
ealton ol iirineiples, aud is tlic most
simple ami etlieient machine yet -le-
viseil for elevntin*- water. By means
ol this engine water at a low head
may be made available ior raising a
portion of the same or other water
.lo a higher level than the supply.
If you have a supply of water to
whieh you can connect a Uile Hydraulic engine, ami place it at a level
of two feet or more below the surface
of the water in the supply, and drain
away Ihe power water that escapes
front the engine, you will thereby
-;et a constant flow of water delivered
lo tho higher point, without any attention or expense, except the replacing of a valve once in about two
years.
The .system is far superior to any
other except a gravity svstem, as
you are assured of a constant How ol
water without attention, regardless
of winil or any other outside power.
In some eases it Is C'-en better than
a gravity system, and this engine
mav he installed at less expense, the
result being practically lhe same.
These engines meet the requirements
where w nter must Ih1 puuiped to a
tank or reservoir, and where there is
a fall of two feel or more in some
stream or brook, or from a flowing
well which may be used for power.
It is not necessary Ihat the waler
whieh is pumped should be taken [rum
Ihe same source as the power water.
Clear spring water may be oumped
by muddy or impure power water
and filtered waler by undHeied without danger of mixing.
An important consideration in favot
oj these engines is their remarkable
high guaranteed efficienev,. amounting
lo Irom Gil to IW \Kt cent, tlepcuding
upon the ratio of the power bead to
lhe head pumped against.
No other system of pumping waler
by water power tins been known to
give such high efficiency, This means
Uial considerably more water will be
lli-livercd lo a given height bv these
engines (ban is possible Willi' anv
other machine, using the same amount
nf power water.
The foundations are of the most
inexpensive kind, requiring merely .
lirm, flat surface, cither rock, cement
or ordinary gravel, with no special
cap stone, brick or masonry piers,
aud the space occupied is so small its
tint lo require much ol a house.
As the wearing parts are few, lieing confined to the valves alone, the
expense of maintenance cannot he
more lh-.ui merely nominal.
Constant attendance is nntlivly un*
necessary, and a visit of Inspection
overy few dnys or week* is the most
that is required.
The size ol these,engines ami variety of application are practically unlimited. Urge capacities are ' obtained by installing several in battery.
They will deliver equally well into
au olcvnl-M tank, closed, compression
tank, power end of a    water motor,
ir compressor, or Into the noz/.ln ol
n impact wheel, thus, besides pumping water, tbey may be used to sttii-
ply power for running passenger
elevators and eleclric dynamos.
The most economical uml etlieient
nielhod of elevating water known.
Constant operation without attention
or expense.
We are very glad lo give full Information regarding the question of
any water supply, and cither sell the
engine, with full Instructions for in-
slallmenl, or send an expert to ntaki-
survev and superintend the installment for a small charge, or take tin
