Secretary of Mountain Association
Gives Reason for Move- Forced
by General Conditions.
Tlie Mountain Lumbermen's association decided yesterday afternoon,
just before adjournment of their
monthly meeting, to make m slight
advance of (1 per 1000 feet ln the
price  of  eisiiiiiiiiii   lumber.
Seen this morning. O, P. Wells, secretary of the association, explained
Unit, while prices on delivery vary
Willi the distance from HrillBh Columbia, of Individual shipping points,
the average Increase would not
amount to 5 per cent.
The lumbermen have all along contended that the Belting prices wero
too low, and left too small a margin
of profit for the millmen under tbe
most favorable circumstances, while
the rising scale of wages and cost ot
supplies threatened at any time to
convert the small profit Into an actual loss. The small advance ls intended aa a safeguard against sucn
a  contingency.
The resolution to Increase the rate
has been delayed for nearly a year,
owing to the reluctance of many
members ot the association to even
seem to be doing anything to retard
the settlement of the new provinces
by Imposing any unnecessary burdens
upon lhe settlers.
Mr. Wells added: "The price ia
still far below what American farmers Just across the line are paying
for lumber, and several dollars a
thousand less than lhe coast lumber-
men are charging. That is, the Western farmers are still getting, and will
continue to get, their lumber cheaper
than any others In the  West
"Besides, the advance, small as It
is, will not take effect in most cases
for several months. All our mills are
woiklug overtime on back orders,
which will of course be filled at the
old price.
"There may be complaints in some
quarters, chiefly from newspapers, 1
fancy. There is certainly no ground
for the complaint. A much greater
increase would have been amply Jus
titled by the condition of tbe market,
and would still have retained for the
association's customer, the cheapest
Western market."

Calgary, Alts., Aug. 9.���The most
disastrous fire ever Buffered by Calgary occurred at 10:30 last night,
when the immense buildings of the

were burned to the ground.
The buildings burned were 400 feet
by 200 feet and 200 feet by 100 feet,
and were only completed recently at
a cost of $100,000.
All th^ heavy machinery recently
brought from England, Germany and
the United States and valued at some
$176,000 that was In the plant, was
burned, but R. P. Butchard, general
manager of the company, thinks that,
owing to tile heavy nature of their
construction, they will be but slightly damaged. He places tbe company's
loss at $100,000, exclusive ot the $38-
000 insurance carried.
The fire is supposed lo have started from a defective bearing ln the
shafting of the main building. The
firemen were unable to offer any assistance, owing to the great distance
of the plant from the city water main.
The company commenced the manufacturing of cement only ten days

The Nelson Lacrosse club fully
atoned today for their defeat in Ross-

on their own grounds they outplayed
the Golden City stick handlers at every point, and won practically as they
pleased. Tbe game woe advertised
for 2 o'clock, but it was 2:40 before
both teams were ready for the face-

well filled and a number of small boys
had trickled in over, under or through

The teams lined up as follows:

From the start li was seen that
Nelson was stronger and faster and
superior in combination. The result
of the match was never ln doubt and
the interest of the spectators centered In the display of the local play
Il was soon recognized that Manager Deusy has some ground for his
claim that Nelson will make Regina

For the visitors it must in fairness
be conceded that they played a hopeless game like good sports. Some ot
their players were strangers to eacn

quarters, making a total of ten. Ros.
'and'B only offence was the result ot
a der rate effort at the -?nd of tho
second quarter.
At the beginning of the last quarter, with the score 7 to 1. Manager
Deusy called out: "Boys., I want
three more."    And he got them.
The spectators were treated to a

Ia common with all other growing
oities Nelson has problems for the
citizens and civic fathers to consider
and settle that are not Withoul their
perplexing features. This evolution
of electric lighting and power supply
ls one of the most Important as well
as one of the most embarrassing ol
these. The history of the development of eleptricaJ compenieoceB in
the city is too long and In some respects ioo humiliating to be recorded
In these columns, aud besides it lfi
not so much with matters that are
past that we have to deal as with the
emergencies and crises that are facing us now. The citizen must be patient and long suffering, indeed, who
can look with indifference upon the
ominous oul look that we arc compelled   to  face.
After costly and long drawn out
litigation with the \\\ K. P. A L. Co.,
and with a council elected, the members of which promised us electric
light from our own plant by the first
of July, we are already well into
August without anyone being able to
tell tu, even approximately, when we
may expect the installation of the
machinery at the newly constructed
power plant.
We   do   not   suggest   that   the civic
officials   are   responsible   for   the   position   in  which   the  city   finds  itsell
today, as   we   know    nothing    of  the
terms   of   the   contracts   which   were
drawn   with     the     Allis-Chulmers-Hul-
lock    company,    hm   |(   la  a   singula-
state  of  affairs,  and  one  which  cannot  be denied,  that  the company has
been playing with the interests of the
city   In   respect   to  the   filling   of  the
contracts,       Kor   the     second   largest
manufacturing concern of the kind on
the  American   continent  to  delay  tin?
filling   of   a   paltry   order     of     some
twelve   (fr   thirteen   thousand   dollars,
as In this ense, is at once to convict
some  ope  i|f Incompetence,  IndllTer
ence   or dishonesty.     \\V   believe   the
local agents of the above named company   are   entirely   Innocent   of   blame
in  the matter,  but It must be apparent to them that the manner in which
the company is treating Nelson Is not
very  good   advertising  in   the  interior
of  Hritish   Columbia   for  ihe  company
concerned.       To    further     complicate
the case, the local agents of the firm
In   question   are   apparently   unable  to
give any  information  aw to  when  we
may   reasonably   expect   shipment   of
the   machinery   ordered,   to   be   made.
To   pretend   that     the    fuctories  are
working   overtime   was   good   enough
for a short  excuse,  but    we    are informed   that orders  which   have  been
placed   with  firm  long since  the Nelson order was    given    have    been already   promptly   filled.     The   patience
of the citizens  is more than exhausted,  and  it   is  no  wonder  tbat  one ot
the aldermen  naively suggested  that
the  order   be   cancelled   aud   we   deal
with some one else.
It has been remarked that the com
pany Is under penalty of $fiO n day
for each day they are delinquent after tlie first Instant, but no one with
sense looks upon that as a matter to
be taken seriously. Any one who
suspects thjat the A Ilia-Chalmers
company will submit to a fine without litigation is liable to be suspected
himself. And how is the city to go
into litigation with a firm with million-; of dollars of invested capital
over a few paltry dollars fine, as it
would appear to them. The city cannot endure much more litigation, as
It has already had too much, and it
must do one of two things, either sit
BUplely down and to wait the moving
of the sluggish pool or else arouse
and take such definite action as will
discover what are Its prospects for
its own light and  power for the  win
ter months.
���      ���   *       ���      ���      ���
Thfl .'lituufion presents still other
complications. It is well known thai
the YV. K, P, & L. Co. Is indirectly
approaching prospective purchasers
of electric power with a view to ascertaining whether it will pay then*
to Install an independent wire to supply power to purchasers here. Thu
city Is hampered in meeting the demands of Ihe users of water motors
and has wisely decided to allow no
more water consumption for power
purposes. The present service is unsatisfactory to all users of water motors, and they are patiently waiting
to make the change to electrical
power. In the "present indefinite
prospect ol the power station It will
be little wonder if the W. K. P, &
L, Co. succeed in arranging to supply
the local demand, for power ai least.
We do nor know what powers the
City would have to restrain them
from entering the local field and competing with the city in its own markets, but we do know that the company specified is a determined and
progressive one, and if they decide
to enter the city and supply power
it will cost the city a handsome penny to keep them out, if, indeed, they
are at all  able  to do so.
These are not only live, but burning civic problems and It Is time that
some action ls taken to bring the unsettled condition Into something like
promise. There may be no collusion
between the W. K. P. '& I.. Co. and
the A.-C.-H. Co., but there Is apparent
Collusion   somewhere.
The members of the Itossland board
of trade nre nothing if not original
nnd a proposal made at their last
meeting, as reported in the Miner, Is
"ne calculated to make other cities
do a little quiet thinking. The finances of the city of Rossland have
been for some time In rather a congested state, and, as is natural under
such circumstances, representative
fltlzens have been looking around for
some method of securing a larger income for the city treasury. The
board of trade seriously discussed a
proposal to memorialize the provincial government to permit the city to
collect and retain thp 2 per cent tax
which the mines at that place now
pay into the provincial treasury. Not
only did they seriously discuss this
proposal, but they passed a resolution
to that effect which will be forwarded
to Victoria, and asked the city or
Rossland to do the same or concur
In the resolution. We shall let ihe
Miner speak for its citizens in the re-
porth of the proceedings, which ls as
"The arfairs of the city are In a
rather bad way financially, and now
that the burden of supporting the
schools  has  been  placed on the city
it accentuates the hardships of the
ratepayers and the poverty of the municipality. The province collects, in
nit- shape of the 2 per cent tax, about
J^u.uiiit per annum from the mines.
As Rossland is the only city in the
province that is not allowed to lax
its one idustry, the speaker thought
that it was entitled to receive the
sum so colltcted from the province.
With this 2 per cent tax going into
the city coffers it would make a
marked improvement in the fimmcial
condition of the municipality. It
was suggested that the board ot
trade memorialize the provincial gov-
ernmenl to gram the receipts from
the 2 per cent lax. anil that th.- council be requested to co-operate with the
board of trade in endeavoring to se
cure ihe concession from the government."
U'Uilo we hare every sympnun
with the distressed financial condition of tin* city we are scarcely prepared to see 'tie governmenl establish  a    pn dent    so    dangerous,  as
would he done n the Rossland proposal is sanctioned. As an instance
of how It might work out, the city of
Nelson might a*sk lhat thr 11 per cent
tax now paid by the Hal] Mines
smelter should be collected by Una
city, and, indeed, it is sot going too
tar to say that ii might consistent!)
ask that all the ores shipped in to be
smelted here should be similarly
Fortunately the citj of Nelson is
not so strait ly pressed ;is Rossland
appears ai present to be and the proposal, if It came from Nelson, would
he scoffed at by the Rossland people
Hut ii would appear to be no more
ridiculous to Rossland than their
own proposal appears to us. What
Rossland ought to do is what so
many other places in Hritish Columbia have had to do, that is, bear
their difficulties while they last, go
slowly in the matter of expenditures,
cuiting their coat according to the
cloth, cultivate a united and patriotic
spirit in her citizens, stick together
and harmonize ail conflicting inter
ests, and make the town what it may
well become, one ot the most pros
perous and  wealthy  in  the country.
The Inland Sentinel of Kamloops
furnishes an example of political bias
in its last editorial, in which, referring to the scarcity of labor in British Columbia, it holds the government
responsible, and concludes the article
with   the   following   deliverance:
"It is the duty of ihe provincial
government to see that the labor required Is forthcoming, or to ut least
make an  effort  to secure  it"
As the Sentinel does not offer any
suggestion tis to how this is to h-f
done it leav-ip room for conjecture
that It will take the government at
least 20 years.
An Archibald Blue ensus Is all

some distance from shore. Munro,
after a while, decided lo join them,
although he could not awim very
well. He procured a light piece of
wood and, with this beneath his
chest, and against the protests of
his companions, struck out for the
When at)OU< 25 yards out he became
frightened and exhausted and called
for help. Two of his companions, the
Harrison brothers, swam lo his assistance and attempted to bring him
ashore, but so hard were his struggles
lhal   all   were   in   danger    of    belling
drowned, and the rascuen becoming
exhausted, relinquished their hold to
save themselves. Had the drowning
boy heeded instructions they could
have  brought him  ashore.
(leorge Scales arrived on Ihe scene
in a boal. in a minute later and dived
to the bottom and brought Ihe boy
to the surface.
All attempts at resuscitation felled,

endeavor to advertise nothing but
what they can -show. They are in a
