"    The  toWn ' of ' Wardner was ._ badly
damaged ..   by    fire Thursday _ night,
^nearly all of the business part of the
town being-destroyed.   The lirestavt-
. ed in tbo Wardner hotel.
It is supposed that the explosion ol
an oil lump "in one of the' 'bedrooms
started the conflagration, and as tlm
building . was of wood, tlu: flames
spread so rapidly that little could be
. dome to. save thu ^-building or. its contents. , -   -
The flames soon licked up the hoteP
and reached out and gathered in the.
.-post aflicc and store lxilungiug lo G.

,- time to. think bi saving'anything except themselves. _. i
.   cThe Crow's Niist Pass J.uinlwi-company's   store .had   a    close call, but
■ was  saved    by the dextrous  use ■'* of
'wet-blankets aud water by  the bucket brigade. ' A large vacant building
'.was also  totally, destroyed.
, The loss amounts to alwu't '$io,ooo,
,.   and a very,small portion of tliis'l-alls
•   upon the,, insurance companies'. ■■
?   As   -there is no water,   system   .at
> Wardner and all the buildings   were  of
wood,     it is   remarkable' that    more
damage was not    done.   One of    Mr.
Donohoe's horses was cremated ,in the
stable.' '" ...
■ ■'    Many of the occupants of the hotel
hsid to 'jump'* from  the  windows,  and
many of them lost valuable personal

- ago for pointing .out  that  the Crow's
Nest l'ass Coal company were payin"
a higher dividend than the ■ operating

" that' practically all the money • utilized in the payment of dividends    had
l*en     acquired      by   Uio    company-
through       the     sate,    of       treasury

■• a further issue of treasury stock    at
$350 per $100 share woulh shortly be
made.   As the issue is to be hall   a
million   it will, if   sold, reuliu $i_-
350,000 and' a net premium of $750,-

position of the company it will Iks interesting    to know what justification
titew is for putting, this slock on tlie
market at such a premium,   ljven   if
thu 10 per   cent, divideud is   maintained, it will only yield 4 per cent.
o«  the actual cost price, a rate    ol

high enough for anything go risky as

as investors, or' perhaps it would lie

Thu -Xanion, News had this  to' say
of tht: coal situation lost' week:      . 1
'  "The    railroad officials,   the    mine
operators,  the union ollicials aad. -the
wise men of the press all join in the
chorus,   'Get yout winter  supply    of
coal early—get it" now.1   We have no
doubt   that   this is good advice. But
how about the "summer 8upply?;Whilc
coal fi.mine, there is no surplus from,
whicli  to secure a winter supply.* In
fact,  there is a shortage in the' 'supply right here iu'Nanton'atlhe pres-
liil time.   Il is pretty near time that
the  railroad officials  and  mine  operators and others who are responsible
for the fuel situation,  received" a ca"ll
to   i;i\ c   us. a   summer ■ supply   of   coal
now.   „ '''''',
"These same people who could and
should supply the fuel market, but
don't, will next winter ' talk'about
ihe improvidence of the public in not
laying in u sup'ply""of coal in excess
of present'needs. But they ace- not
sending us a .surplus from which to
provide for the future. The fault is
i-ither with the railroad company or
at the minus, j
'Don't wait till next winter, but
.si-nd us some coal now!" ',
It is uli very weir for people who
lia\e th,: coal to sell, and the railroads who lmve to haul it, to advise
the consumer to buy his coal at a
time when it suits him least 'to do
so nnd tlie other tne most, but such
argument s are only so many admissions that the railroads and the
coal companies are not prepared to
serve the public at the time their
.services are most required.
A lew years ago the railroads were
advising lumber dealers on the
prairie to order "their season's stock
of lumber early in the spring*, so that
ih.- railroads could »U|)>it out oii Uie
prairie when they" had V 'surplus of
cup, but when asked to wait tor u
I'.iynn-nt on tlie lum/hitr so **hipj>ed until tin- lumber was needed, a new
lilihl broKe in oil the railroad'' officials, nnd they decided to iake
cliancis on delivering when the luni-
l*r was actually needed, to uak'that
mill mm should ship' the product of
tlioii mills inonihs liefore It wns
