The. following messugo to Mayor
Tuttle wns received from W. White of
the C.l'.H. on Sliturduy. "1 have
seen for myself tlie Ue\ ustution and
ruin of your thriving city, caused by
tlie recent, lire, and the' hopeful manner in which the citinens are bearing
their several' losses and endeavoring
lo overcome them. 1 have communicated with thc President, Sir Thomas Sluuighnessy who now authorizes
me on behalf of the' C. P. R. Company to assist by a contribution of
ten thousand dollars: I am convinced of the wisdom (Hind propriety of
the suggestion made in conversation
with Mr. .Lindsay, that,the Dominion
and Provincial governments or one
of them should advance Immediately
to the residentsy whose houses were
burned, money suUicicnt to rebuild at
once, taking as security the land and
buildings on it lor repayment* of thc
amount advanced, with reasonable interest. This will enable the citizens
to recover themselves without advantage being taken of their misfortune,
unci also enabling them to provide
comfortable habitation", against the
cold which will soon overtake them."

mittee .Badly   Disappointed
• Hon. Richd.. McBride, premier of
British Columbia reached Fernio via
C. N. It. on Tuesday noon, being met
by a select few of the faithful. A gen.
oral meeting ,of the committee to

p.m.- at the Coal Co. ofjice, aiid with,

iieed of Firnie at this moment before
the distinguished -gciiileman. The
results obtained wore • very disappointing in the-'t'xtrijuo'and for nil
that was'gaincd, Dick AlcHrid*might
have saved himself- the journey to
Fernio. The ire of some of the com.
mittee was rather warm, particularly
so Messrs O. L. Boynton, general
manager of the" Elk Lumber Co., and
F. II. Sherman, who hiindhd the pre.
niior without gloves. Beyond' ihe re.
building of the city school and the
provincial buildings (which they nre
in duty bound to build) the govern,
ment of this province will do nothing
and this riding a'supporter of that
government. What do the voters
think of it and will. Ihey forget nil
about it at the next election. We
hope not, „
I'reniier McBride said to iho com.
mittee that in making a grant or loan
to Fernie at this instance would be
setting a precedent but when con.
fronted wiih the stalement by Frank
Sherman that ' his government had
seen fit,, lo grant $10,000.00 to the San
Francisco disaster, simply replied

A   RACE   FOR   LIFE   OF   SURVEY
PARTY   NEAR   MICHEL
DESCRIBED
j
(Winnipeg Free Press.)
fn connection with the recent great
fire at Fernie, an interesting* letter
has been received by W. A. Farmer,
of Ehnwood, from his son, W, R.
Fanner, who was in a survey camp
twelve .miles south of Michel at the
time. "When the lire broke put,"
the letter runs, *'wd knew that our
only chance of safety was to take to
the mountains; for it is in the va'.leys
where the forest growth is thickest,
that the fire rages most fiercely. Our
camp took fire; and leaving every,
thing behind us except the clothes in
which we stood,- we made for the
high land."
They .reached ut the highest point
in their course, an elevation of 8,000.
feet.       .      ■
The wind, vering constantly, proved
to be iheir salvation. Tli ere were
limes when from the burning country, almost suffocating tho fugitives
with the'ficrce heat. At such times,
they flung themselves down for cool,
ness on the moss or among the leafy
undergrowth,' saving their strength
for the"change of the wind. "The val.
ley that our trail went down;" writes
Mr. Farmer, "was 'like a furnace."
At tlie end of two nights and a day
they reached ' McGillivray, having
had nothing to eat from Sunday noon
until Sunday .night. To show how
narrowly they escaped, Mr. Farmer
states that, in a camp only six miles
distant from their own, three men,
unable to escape were burned to
death.

Senator Templcnian arrived in his
special car Tuesday afternoon and at.
tended the special meeting "at -.which
I'reniier   McBride   was   the   central
figure.    Mr. Tenipleinan's visit came
at an oportune time, and it was pro.
per  that   be  should   be  the   one 'to
come from the Federal Government,
bring  British    Columbia's    representative in tlie Senate. His attitude was
very  much  different  to  that  of  the
man  of  "Better  Terms"  fame    and
while making no rash promises gave
every assurance of his best interests
in our behalf and signified his utter
willingness  to  do  all  in   his  power
to induce the laiurier administration
to come to our assistance at this most
critical moment.   Just here we may
say  for  the   benefit  of  all   that  no
money loan will be made and what,
ev r does come in a monetary sense
wi 1 be a s'raight grant.   It is not the
problem of feeding the sufferers, but

RACE RIOTS IN SOUTH
Springfield, Ills., Aug. 18.—An at.
tack upon pickets and the forced de-
parture of 15 negroes from corn fields
on the outskirts of tho city to the
state arsenal, kept the militia busy
this morning, the firing upon the
sentries und their answering shots
occurring less than two blocks from
the henihruarters of General Young
at th'e county jail.
No one was injured in the. affray
but the flying bullets from the militia carbines caused consternation in
the. district, The, trouble wiih caused
by an attempt to set fire to a factory
building ou 8th Street between Jeff,
ei'.son nnd Madison, A negro who had
been ordered from ihe pluc several
times during the night was discovered
lurking in the shadow by a trooper.
The man was ordered to move on,
hut the negro's reply was a shot from
u revolver, lie (led and was pursued
hy the militiaman but escap:d. Thia
was the tliird attempt to assimsinato
militia pickets during the night.
The clearing out of tho corn lields
Houth east of the city was the result
of successive nights of terror in Tlnr.
vaid I'ark, An inspection "of thu
cornfields late. ycHtordny showed thnt
ut leant I no nigroi's hnd camped
therein. The p.'escnc of the negrocH
is thought to have been lespoiiHihln

"THE BURIAL OF OUR DEAD"
Over the graves of our comrades we
stood,
*.Vho°in the dark mine had spilt their
life's blood,'
Over the graves where their sad widows1 weep,
.Whore lieth .' our   .commdes in their
"     last long sleep— ~   ,-
How strange sound the words—"An
' ' evergreen spray        "
Xow cast, on the graves of our comrades today."
"Keep fresh in your memory the lives
of the dead:"
But on those rough"' caskets no green
leaf was laid;
Yet  deep   in  our  hearts,—which will
ne'er fade away,—
Are  thoughts of the scenes of    that
awful day
When the' green leaf was scorched and
,   dyed  a deep black;
(That day   will    live on throughout
life's rough track,)    »
No slow, mournful drum to .deepen
the gloom,
In no great, numbers did we gather
around --1
'l'o pay our last tributes on that bur,
ial ground,—
The living were homeless and despairing that day
When the emblem we sought had vanished away.

Busy  have been  the days  for the

and incessantly to relieve the. desti.

paid  for their labors.   Tho commit,
tee only wish such insinuations may
he. true, but in tho meantime, they
are amply rewarded by the gratitude
of those they hnve so cheerfully sitv.
ed with food and clothing. They have
realized that nothing brings  greater

viz., a purchased monopoly.

borough, poor beggars,' they were almost, run off their feet, the. happiesst
man   in   the   bunch    being    Sammy
Smith  the  butcher,  who, when  each
side ■ of beef  came  in, gave vent to
'•'Hallelujah,"  or "Praise the Lord."
Sammy never  served  his  Master to
better  advantage, than whin  cutting
up the beef for tbe destitute crowd.
Trites-Wood   may   want, some   counter men and could not do better than
make , a   selection   from  any   of  the
above   mentioned.    They   were   never  at   a  loss   for  anything  to  pack
rice,  sugar,  tea,  coffee or  beans  in.
A   sugar   hag   was   good   enough   for
a  general  mixture of the above articles,- empty   soap   or  mutch   boxes
were frequently used with the directions  to  wash   out  before  using.    A
suck   was  good   enough   for  potatoes,
Hour,  eggs  and tinned  mentis, hand,
kerchiefs, hats an whatever else they
could command for the safe 'deposit of
various  provisions being used to the
best   advantage.   Taking   all   round,
they  had  a  jolly, ' good,    humorous
time   of   it,   although   their   patience
was   severely    tried    sometimes    by
those who sought to impose upon the
cheapest and best managed store in
Canada. , As  a, fitting climax to the
strenuous duties, they were all photographer with the exception of one
who .must   have   been   courting   the
nurse again.
Honor to whom honor is due, but
be it remembered that among our
most heroic spirits at the Creek was
our gallant Supt... Strachan. He,
along with Bosses Martin, Sprouston
and Carsfield were the first to en.
ter and the last to leave that ill.
fated No. 2 mine on July 31st. And
be. it-said to the credit of, the Super,
intendent, his services were ever at
the use of the relief committee. He
spared himself not one whit, knowing
no rest for at' leasst one week, with
his mining duties and his attention
and consideration for thc homeless.
All honor to our leaders, Sherman,
Biggs,, Gu.vin, and Avails. They are
a credit to us,n but what- about our
local,, doctors who, gallantly exposed
themselves to dangers new to them,
if, by. any means, they could render
leaf, positively refusing to accompany S  Biggs on a solicitation expedition as jt was the "Day"of Rest."
Well done Billy!
David Davies pulled out for Coleman last Saturday, also Joe Morgan
paid us a visit from Coleman. Joe
had better luck than Harry Irwin
who came and had to fight the fire,
but Harry proved himself to be made
of the'stuff heroes are made of. Joe's
visit was pleasant, Harry's was dutiful and heroic.
Tom Stephenson left for England

'The   news   may   be   stale   but   yet
that exciting run from the Rock Cut
to Fernie has never be*n recorded in
the press,    It     is     not     commonly

BAD, TASTE
Is it not just possible that Mayor
Tutle of Fernie has allowed his en.
thusiasm and excitement .to run away
with his good, judgment: The-latest
call for help from Mayor Tuttle" has
gone .10 London, "England. The tele,
gram sent out during the fire touched
a tender spot in the hearts of Can.
adians. Almost every town and city
' in Canada was appealed to and re.
sponded. - American cities sent con.
'tribution, umSl about $100,000 has
been given for relief. Later another
appeal was sent and even this wns
rocogniral as an urgent, necessity.
However, it would seem that nu apl
peal going outside the country should
go only from the Canadian (lovern.
ment, when the latter, lias ac.
knowledged itself and the. Canadian
people as incapable of handling the
situation, it almost comes on n
Canadian as a slap that a fe'low
countryman should appeal abroad,
Thore is .such a thing <*iri pride even
.in calamity. We Canadians like to
feel that we can protect our own
people, and that we have national
pride enough to .bear our troubles
without a public capitulation.
The above from the columns uf the
Medicine Hal Times, at this liniu is
rathe: in bad taste. -Anything that
.Mayor'Tuttle has done so far for the
relief of Fernie has been' commented
on in the highest of terms and his
appeal to' London, Eng,, was doubt.
Jess sanctioned by a committee of
whom. Mayor Tuttle wns one. If
.Spokane' and other American cities
came to our aid without the. asking
how much more so should England
of which we form so important a part.
It was not a matter of enthusiasm
with J.ill Tuttle but the pari of the
true Samaritan.

tlie. yellow peril again comes 'to the

anese were harmless,' and that they ,,,.,_,..
were.getting a's-high weagesjis_ainitaj-iibts!.!
meinnen.'. This •' is;- an absurdity.
Wherever the'Japs can be' employed
in place of white men they are put to
work. In some few cases they arc
paid the union scale, in most bases
they are.paid less.

• chance lo; scab. Thoy come out to
this country,, work alongside, of white'
union men, learn nil the intricacies
of  whateycr trade  they nre  at

of inactivity on the part of those most
interested. ' Get "together at" onct*, and

EDITORIAL   NOTES
* Fn regard to the postal delivery .wo
would like to make a -suggestion to
Ihe ' authorities. Wo think, (nnd here
we life expressing the thoughts of
most of our readers) that a double
wicki*t should be osteblished, one
from A to I. and the other from M
to '/., Two inoiv bunds (not girls)
should be" put on, Thn present s,vm.
I 'in is fnr too meagre and out of date
,fi'i* even n Ore ridden town, II is
nhoiil the poorest thing we have ever
seen, nnd for months I here will he
an extra rush on the post olllce, ,lt
is ridiculous beyond description Ihe
time (Imi a business ninu bus lo
wa.-te by the pro-.eiit iintiipiateil methods In receive his niiiil or even In
