Clifton Hotel Has Another
Theory That the Conflagration Was
the Work of a Burglar Lighting
His Pipe.
There was quite a fire early on
Sunday morning just after day
break in the old Clifton House,
Luckily the building being a log
structure, was hard to buru and
the conflagration did not spread
As it is, however, the rear end of
the saloon is praotically a wreck,
the roof is badly burnt and the
clothing store of B. Bannett is
almost a total loss.
The fire wae discovered at 3:30
o'clook yesterday morning by the
smoke penetrating from the cloth'
ing store into the billiard room of
the Clifton. The fire brigade was
so quickly on the scene that the
flames had not buret out. It was
evident that the process of smouldering had been going on for a long
while, aB it took some 45 minutes
to get the flames thoroughly under
Some new stock had arrived Sat-
terday Mrs. Bannett declares (B
Bannett himself is away) and the
total value of the stock- was in the
neighborhood of $4000. There is
some insurance, but not enough to
cover the damages. The losses to
the Clifton hotel are also considera
How the fire originated is a
mystery. The baok door was discovered open, and the register
whioh contained a few valuable
watches, and about $G in cash,
was found broken open and its con
tents missing. It is surmised that
the thief broke in earlier in the
night and threw a match carelessly
aside into the clothing in the rear
of the Btore.

tbe idea broached Jay A.,C, 0 tit at,
a recent meeting of the Carnival
committee of procuring a meeting
in Bossland of the exeoutive of the
Provincial Mining Association and
has determined to call the meeting

The Provincial Mining Association has at least a six monthly
meeting of its executive and it was
determined at the session of February to hold the next up country.
The programme of matterB to be
discussed is yet to be formulated
by John Keen though, of course, it
will probably be added to up to the
time of the meeting of the executive, and even then it is competent
for any member of the exeoutive to
broach any Bubjeot for  discussion.
It will be a representative gathering from all over the province
which will assemble here and the
presence of these members of the
executive will do muoh to instruct

Spokane, July 27,—(Speoial)—
By an unanimous vote the printers
employed on the Spokesman-Review and its evening edition, the
Chronicleand Bulletin, quit work
last night because they were refused pay on the new soale, calling
for $4.50 for day and ,$5 for night
work. The night soale is now being
paid in all other machine offices in
the city. Forty men altogether
are out.
The trouble began last Septemb.i
when the demands were first made.
In January the matter was submitted to a looal board of arbitration, which decided in favor of the
Spokesman-Review cutting down
the soale in force for the past eight
years, and increasing the hours of
A protest filed by the local lodge
of the Typographical Union resulted in the international board
of arbitration sitting here. After a
week's careful hearing President
Lynch held that the award of the
local arbitration was illegal, inasmuch as that board did not consider the subject under dispute but
rather a long list of counter demands
made by the Spokesman-Review.
These demands praotically meant
the "ratting" of the Review office,
as they provided for the employment of both union and non-union
help, iucluding the foreman, and
providing for unlimited apprentices.
The printers declare that through
the long negotiations pending, now
for nearly a year, they have been
sueeringly turned down and met
by demands which could only be
construed as emanating from
employers, who weredetermined on
having non-union labor.
The Spokesman-Review has evidently been preparing for trouble
as its columns of late have been full
of its cide of the matter in dispute.
Cowles, the proprietor of the
paper, jh declared to be out of the
city and the paper refuses to discuss tho situation.
There are no negotiations on foot
for peace on either side and the
printers believe it is the intention
to "rat" the office.     -

The Would BUBpeots that the
finances of this oity are not in tbe
best possible condition. It is also
of the opinion that this is largely a
matter of management, but thinkB
it were well that the citizens were
taken into the confidence of the municipal council, and the accounts of
the first half year published. There
ia no doubt that a restoration of
confidence will do muoh to rehabil
itate the oity and tend to the better
collection of the taxes. A few
hundred dollars judiciously expended in furthering the Summer
Carnival will help greatly to this
end and council and citizens alike
Bhould see that there is no stone
left unturned to make it the greatest festival that Rossland has
hitherto witnessed.
A lively suggestion is made in
order that the workings of tbe
finance committee be facilitated;
which is that each and every member of the executive either put up
$5 or join in the scramble to catch
the greased pig. When the dignity
ol some of the executive, the agility
of others, the adipose tissue of yet
another seotion, ia taken into consideration the spectacle of 70 potent
grave and reverend seignors of the
camp, chasing a squealing razor-
back round and round the baseball
enclosure, ought to be one to command big gate money. With their
characteristic enterprise the minor
sports (all Grits by the way) are
pushing this novel feature, and nat
urally the finance committee, with
a careful eye to business, are not
dissuading them.
boldly proclaims himself superior
to the laws of British Columbia,
wisely framed for the protection of
human lives as well as property,
the course of action is plaiu. No
"political expedients" can be permitted to intervene to save Mr.
Dunsmuir from the fall that his
temerity invites. The law prohibiting the employment in underground colliery workings of persons so ignorant as to be unable to
read the plain printed rules of the
mine, is wisely designed legislation
based on the soundest prinoiple—
that of safeguarding in so far as
possible the lives of those engaged
in an extra-hazardous avocation,
of minimizing to such extent as
human prudence and preoautiou
may accomplish that result, the
fatality in collieries in this mining
province. No argument can be
adduced justifying its non-enforcement to the letter. And there is a
sentimental as well as a plain practical reason why extra efforts
should now be made to enforce the
law in this particular case. No
man, be he millionaire or beggar,
should in British Columbia be permitted to place himself above the
oommon law. When a millionaire
attempts to do so it is especially
neoessary that he should be forthwith oonvinoed of his error.lest the
masses of the people detect a favoritism for wealth and an exemption
for the wealthy which must aot as
the leaven of anarchistic conditions
and pave the way for suoh disorders aa have made the name of certain sections of the United States
an offence to civilization. The
Attorney-General's duty toward
Mr. Dunsmuir's company is clear
and obviouB. The majesty of a
law whioh recognizes all men as
equal must be sternly and immediately demonstrated.
Because Mr. James Dunsmuir is
a millionaire, sayB the Vancouver
World, through no display of exceptional energy or conspicuous
ability on his own part, but merely by reason of the fact that his
enterprising and capable father,
dying, oould not take his millions
with him, he has fallen into the
error of belieying that his wish is
superior to the law of the land.
It is not a unusual thing to find
pig-headed obstinacy misinterpreted as firmness of character,and Mr.
Dunsmuir gives an illustration of
this misconception carried to an
extreme. When Mr. Dunsmnir
shows himself disposed to ride
roughshod over the rights of his unfortunate employes, the public can
only look on with pain that such
things can be—it is a private matter
and the law ia powerless to intervene in humanity's behalf. When
Mr. Dunsmuir assumed to abrogate representative government
and establish a dictatorship over
the province while premier, the
public had the satisfaction of retiring him to private life. And
when Mr. Dunsmuir, as in the
latest demonstration of his shortsightedness or distortion of vision,

General Warren's Latest
ShrewJ Suspicion Existing That the
Narrator Is the Real Hero of the
The following story has been
forwarded to ue for publication.
We think it somewhat strange, but
as Qeneral Warren is an old time
ohum of the narrator's, whose
veracity, despite his connection
with the yellow presB, is absolutely
unequivocal, we have let it go aB it
looks, shrewdly suspecting that the
narrator, long and well known in
this oamp, was the real hero of the
"Not long ago General Warren,
one of the pionerrs of Roesland and
numerous other mining camps, had
an experience whioh even to him
was unique. For some time past
the Qeneral has resided in Tonopah, Nevada, where he has interests in several mining claims, with
every prospect of becoming a
mighty millionaire, like John
Brown of Colorado, sung about in
'The Shop Girl.' The General,
becoming somewhat tired of the
arid plains around Tonopah, that
plaoe of 'sand, sun, sin, sweat and
sorrow,' moved to San Francisco,
there to enjoy onoe again the comforts and luxuries of civilization
and to visit numerous friends, who
were eagerly awaiting his arrival
to join in his several mining enterprises and thus get in 'on the
ground floor.'
"Following his usual custom the
General stepped out briskly one
fine morning in his usual debonaire
manner, puffing a large Havana,
(three for half a dollar, imported
by himself) and feeling upon good
terms with mankind generally and
himself in particular, he wended
his way to get a 'braoei' to fortify
himself against the worries of
another day in the city within the
Golden Gate, where he had many
appointments with capitalists and
mining nabobs who were feverishly
awaiting the unfolding of his sure
thing aohemes by whioh they were
all to beoome rich beyond the
dreams of avarice. A few minutes
walk brought the General to his favorite rendezvoused withaoheery
greeting to Proprietor 'Bismark,'
he poured cut four fingers of rye,
being just off the water wagon,
Bismark filled up another glass, on
the side, with what he thought was
mineral water, and the general at
once prooeeded to swallow the rye,
with evident relish, without the
blinking of an eye, he then turned
his attention to the 'ouaser'
whioh he stowed away at a gulp.
"He had no sooner done so than
he commenced making violent gesticulations, rolling his eyes about,
and opening and shutting mouth
in   ihe endeavor to   give  utterance to words,  but in vain.   He
gasped for breath and tore frantically   at   his   collar.   - Bismark
thinking to relieve the painful situation, hastily poured out a little
more  mineral   water which, however, was instantly  pushed aside
by the gasping general. The excitement in  the saloon was now intense  and ae the face of the almost
fainting sufferer oame near a light,
ed cigar jet, hia breath caught fire
and flames issued from his mouth,
the contents of the water bottle
was hastily poured over him but
much to the surprise of those present it only increased the volume of
flames, and it was not until a
fire hose had been brought to play
upon the general, were the flames
subdued. A doctor was hastily
summoned who administered restoratives, and the general, who
has upon many previous occasions
been under fire, soon recovered.
Upon investigation the mystery
was solved. The bottle supposed
to contain mineral water in reality
oontained wood alcohol, whioh the
night barman had used in a spirit
lamp, and carelessly left on the
counter when he went off shift in
the morning.
"ln future the General haB decided to take his whisky straight and
ewear off water altogether."

Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen Shy, B. Q.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis ot this diatrict. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the ereotion of a large smelter at Similkameen City whioh will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Niokel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North Amerioa, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly bs developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Bed Chief ard Pollock. Situated as it is in tbe beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a nhort time ago
that lots in RoBsland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same prioe that they are today being sold'
for in Similkameen,   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The,Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad oentre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast they will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for milea around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph aud telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.

Carrying the Riding
Cranbrook, July 25. — Politics
and the lead bonus form the ohief
topics of discussion hereabouts
these days. The Conservatives aro
to nominate a candidate on August
15th. Thomas Gavin of this place,
and J. A. Harvey, of Fort Steele,
are spoken of in this connection.
The Liberal nominating convention
will be held next Wednesday. So
far as known at present the choice
will be beiveen R. E. Beattie, the
druggist of Cranbrook, and J. C.
Drewry, the well known mining
man. Locally Beattle's candidature
is favorably spoken of, but in the
choice made regard will be had to
beat interests of the party irrespective of sectional preferences.
On Thursday evening the
Liberals held an enthusiastic rally,
the attendance being very large.
The Liberals feel confident of

There will be dancing on the boat
