•Vwiet Prion,
A snd accident occurred Saturday ufteruoou ut the home of
Charles Musson residing at the
head of Lonsdulo nvenue, when
his daughter, Marjoric, aged 14
sustained injuries from un explosion of coal oil which resulted
in her death tit 1:45 on Suuilny
Miss Mni'jorie wns alone in the
house ut the time and wns in the
uot of lighting the fire which, being slow iu starting, the little
girl attempted to hasten hy pouring coul oil ou thc wood.
It appears thut a small sliver
had kindled and immediately the
oil touched the explosion occurred, blowing the stove to atoms
and setting the clothes of the
child on fire. Her agonizing cries
attracted neighbors who came to
her uid. She wus immediately
sent to the hospital hut her injuries were such that death followed.
Funeral took blace on Tuesday
which was well attended.
Windows Broken
As a result of a blast fired by
(leo. Eastman on Saturday, several stores and offices' in the vicinity of First and Second
streets on Lonsdale nvenue suffered considerable damage.
The shot wns put in n large
stump, on the vncaut lot next to
the northeast corner of Lonsdale
avenue and Second street, nhout
11 o'clock on Saturday.
Apparently with but slight
wiiruiug the charge was exploded and the air for over a
block urouud was filled with flying debris and stones. A front
glass was broken in A. R.
Stacey's store, another in the of-
fico of J. Pictin Wurlow, in the
same block, also W. A. Shaw's
store on the opposite corner had
two holes put through the front
windows, and south a few doors
a stone struck tho basebourd ut
tho entrnnce to a vucunt store
und smashed it.
W. II. Muy hud perhaps the
most narrow escape of any. Ho
was wnlking up the street snd
when the explosion occurred was
iu front of the Board of Trade
barbershop and a stone nearly
tho size of u ninu's fist whizzed
past within u few inches of his
head and struck thc window cas
hig on the barbershop, and at the
sumo time breaking a large hole
in the plate glass.
A number of other persons,
while not tictiiiilly hurt, had very
narrow escapes, and were badly
This case on Saturday is not
by any means the only one, that
the residents of North Vancouver ure complaining of. In different sections ot the city blasts
are fired that shake houses and
endanger windowB.
Work on the Lynn creek
bridge will soon be suspended
for the winter. It is found that
tho abutment ut the eastern
end, which wus not wnslied
away in thc recent catastrophe to
the bridge, is not sufficiently
solid to permit of a perumnent
structure being laid over it, although at first it was thought to
be intact. For the winter
months and ns a means of outlet
to those living to the east of
Lynn creek a foot bridge will be
laid over the stream.

On Tuesday the fine gasoline
launch Echo, valued at about
$4,ooo, and owned by Brandon,
was burned al Larson's wharf.
The lire started early in the afternoon, and upon an alarm being
rung in, G. Nye and T. Prime
promptly ran the reel down Lonsdale avenue to Esplanade where
they were joined hy Firemen S.
Spence and T. Farro, and in a
short lime the hose was brought to
play on the blaze, which was a
particularly fierce one, there being
011 board somo 250 gallons of gaso-
ine. The fire was caused by the
falling of some matches on the
lloor, near the engine, which set
fire to the oil in the disc,
Yesterday Diver Fred Madison
and Capt. Cates' pile driver came
over from Vancouver and raised
the hulk and beached it. She was
lying in about 35 feet of water,
along the west side ol the wharl,
close to the "T" slip.
Shortly alter midnight again this
morning the Echo was again discovered to bc on lire, the origin of
which is a mystery. But it is supposed that the gasoline was never
fully extinguished, and when the
water was out ol the boat that it
again ignited.
A large number turned out, and
it was about 3 a. m. when the fire
fighters and the spectatora wended
their ways homeward.
Great credit is due to the fire
brigade that so promptly turned
out, Thc alarm was rung in by
Police Officer Tarn. In thirty
seconds the lirst man was at the
reel house, and in a minute the
brigade was flying down to the
wharf. By actual time the watt,
was turned on in five minutes,
Those who comprised the team,
and to whom great credit is due
for their active work were : Capt.
P. McDonald ( No. 1 team ), Capt.
Fred Tarn (No. 2 team), Geo.
Carpenter, Steve Spence and officer
Tarn. The origin ol the last lire
is supposed to have been combustion.
Debating Society
The young people of Nortli
Vancouver are invited to St.
Andrew's church on Tuesday evening, November 12th, to form a
literary and debating club. The
organization is not confined to any
or all ol the churches, though the
clergymen of the other denominations arc taking an interest in its
formation. It is hoped this will
fill a long felt need in our city,
and give an opportunity for our
bidding orators and luture city
fathers to test their powers. A
constitution will be submitted for
approval, and the syllabus chosen
for the winter months. Charter
members will be enrolled on Tuesday evening, and the club
thoroughly organized. All interested are welcome.

Mr. Emery Explains
Speaking of the remarks made
by Mr. Sieacy, chairman of the
school board, as appeared in last
week's issue, Mr. Emery said that
he regrets that Mr. Steacy made a
misstatement in saying that he
worked against the school money
by-law. All must realize the
necessity in purchasing sites lor
schools, and no opposition was
raised with reference to the purchase of two sites. The purchase
of lot 2, district lot 273, was, Mr.
Emery stated, as looked upon by
sonic members ol the council as a
poor business proposition, the
price being loo high, compared
with adjoining property, and doubt
as to the ability ol having the
Whole block delivered at $20,000,
as part ol the block hail been sold
to individual owners. "These
matters were discussed," said
Alderman Emery, " but it was not
considered wise to oppose the
recommendations ol the trustees.
The only course open to the
council was to submit the by-law
and obey the wishes ol the people.
The Club Tobacco and Billiard
saloon will open on or about Mont
day next at the store just south ol

and he hopes all those who like

Mr. Win. McWilliams, second
engineer on the St. George, Ims
severed his conncclion therewith,
and leaves in a few days for Portland. Mr. McWilliams' popularity
has extended to all his acquan*
tances, and his ever smiling coun-
enance will  be missed by all.
