We saw Kaslo's great illumination.
It was an American fire. It would
have been more so, if it had occurred
three days sooner., We knew it was
an American fire from th e rapidity
with which it wiped Front street off
of the face of the earth. We were
asleep at the time-the alarm was
given,, but our faith was so st; ong in
Kaslo's Fire Brigade that we merely
felt the wall do see that it was not hoi-,
and then went to sleep again. When-
the noise became loud enough to
awaken the dead, and the flames ht
up the forward rigging of the hotel
we concluded; that unless we wanted
to go where everybody has wings
that wre would ?*etreat gracefully as
possible: Gathering up our garmen\s
we retired in a hurried manner, not
even stopping to settle our bill, and
in the broad, exoansive back-yai'd
we dressed ourselves and- then went
forth to view the greatest .disaster
that has yet befallen Kaslo. It was
light as dav. The only dark place
was under a man's eyes, who had
been fighting. He looked like Chas.
Mitchell.' ; .....-.-.i^w-A.
The lurid flames shot upward, seeming anxious to kiss the stars, the j
smoke rolled in dense clouds towards
the mountains, the firemen and citizens worked like heroes, and when
Byer's store was blown up we thought
Hades had split open, and let the inhabitants out for a holiday.
During the excitement we saved
19 lives. We had a keg of Kansas
cider on tap in a secluded s; )t—in
the store ot a man who did not a dver-
tise.
It was reported that 10 '3 bed bugs
left town the next day for Three Forks
singing, Driven From Home. This
is a false rumor, as we have never
yet seen a bed bug in the city, and
have often felt lonesome because we
could not wrestle wiih them before
breakfast. ",
Quite a number of people took
things that did not belong to them,
The only thing we took was our time.
It is wrong for people to take pork,
ham, bacon and other articles that
the owners save from a fire. When
a man saves his bacon, he ought to
have it.
Teamsters had a harvest in moving 5
goods.    Some of them charged pi 'ces
at the ashes of your building -.with.a
sweet complacency of counienance.
But most of Kaslo's people 'have more
sand than the city has railroad iron,
and they will live through all their
troubles and wear a crown of gold
some day. Silver must advance in
price, and when it gels along about
$10 a pound the fire will seem like a
dream ofthe past with more dynamite
in it.   In the meantime if the worst
SUDDEN DEATH.
James Phillips Succumbs to an Attack of Heart Disease.
About. 11. o'clock last Thursday,

with a companion named Welsh in a
cabin on the lake front in the east end
of the town, expired very suddenly

to Nakusp. Our latch string is on
the outside of the door,", and inside
you will find roast turkey that will
make you think of home'and mother.
We sympathize with Kaslo in her
troubles. They have had a great
deal to contend wioh in the past year
and if we had a million dollars we
would have a new deal and; stake
everybody who lost in the recent
calamity. We will quit now and go
and look for the million.
Distinguished Men Coming.
■ It is rumored in financial circles on
the coast that the Dulce of; Montrose
and a party of British capitalists will
visit -British Columbia during, the
summer. The object of their trip is
to thoroughly investigate some mining properties in the Slocan and Al-
berni. . The Duke is interested in a
promising gold claim in the latter
district, but he and his friends will
also endeavor to get a substantial
foothold in the silver properties of the
Slocan.
But a few minutes before he had been
down to the lake for a pail of water,
and bad seated himself in front of his
place of abode to recover his breath
when the attack came on. He fell
over on his side, frothing excessively
at the mouth. His companion called
an acquaintance and together they
carried Phillips' into the cabin and
laid him on a bed, immediately going for assistance, but ere they returned the patient was dead.  ;
Provincial Officer Fauquier was
notified and he took charge of the remains, deeming it, however, unnecessary to hold an inquest. Deceased
was 66 years of ag-e. , For a long tim e
past he had been in a weak condition
because of his ailm en t. Previous to
coming to Nakusp he had.worked on
the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway,
spending a few wreeksin tlie hospital
at Say ward, as -a certificate from, Dr.
Titus, the physician in charge, testified.
Dr. Titus had given Phillips a letter of introduction to Contractor
O'Leary, reconimending him for some
light task on the Nakusp & Slocan
Railway. He was given the job of
carrying water for the surfacing gang
which work he continued in till the
snow put a stop to track-laying.
During the fall he had been under the
care of Dr. Williamson. Only the
day before he died, deceased had.
stated, that he was convinced that he
had not much longer to live.
Officer Fauquier had made all arrangements to. give the remains a decent burial at the Government's ex-

By Saturday's mail T. Abriel received a surprise in the shape of a
formal request from Deputy Postmaster General White and Inspector

that Mr. Abriel had received of his

GUARDING THE BORDER.
'~r  ..*':* >":'>
American Government Will Suppress
Opium Smugg^'ii:,. ;..
It is understood that so-soOiias the
warmer season sets in, so that the
snow melts along the Columbia, river,
the American Government, according
to the Spokane Chronicle, will take
vigorous steps in the way of putting
a stop to the simigglmg of opium. ....'.It
is not believed that' any opium has
been brought across the border since
the.heavy falls of snow, as the trails
across the mountains are filled up to
a depth of several feet.
The officials think, that the smuggling agents are^ making use of this5
state of affairs to bring in the.opium
aiidc store it on the other aide of the
lifre, ancT"that^an-'sobh'as the trails;
are opened, the business, will start up
brisker than ever. :; There are many:
who  believe  that there are tons of
opium ready for shipment, and Uncle
Sam is ^determined- that it shall not
come in here.
Arrangements are being made to
establish twenty men along the line,
and this will give each one just the
distance he can:cover thoroughly.
An effort is to be made to put a stop
to the business, absolutely, and to
break up the large smuggling rings
which are known-to exist,\
It does "not seem to be any trouble ■
to get all • the.; hieh^heeded to assist;
in theAWOi*:, fbr^rnany ,will put in
their time .onxtiBe- border hoping to
make a /big . seizure once in a while,
and in this way get very large
wages.
..Deputy .Collector-. Hugh McCool,
w^ho; is stalio^edjatiNortlrpor^t, wasih
Spokane the other evenihg and stated
that "the heavy snow made it very
quiet on the border. There can not
be much done by the smugglers now;
in fact it would be impossible for them
: fo,:do ahythihg at present, and by the
time the snow goes off we will probably have a large force on. We need
twenty men along the line to make it
safe, and I think some- big hauls will
be made."
It is said that the Government purposes stopping this traffic, for, the officials say, it is ridiculous to have
so much expense and no return from
the opium. They say that there
should either be sufficient force to
stop the traffic and bring in a revenue
to the government or opium should be
admitted free of duty and the expense stopped. The smugglers, who
are undoubtedly keeping watch of
everything, fear some such moves,
and one would be nearly as bad as
the other for them. Because of this
feeling the officials believe that there
will be a great rush so soon as spring-
opens up. .
When in Kaslo stop at the Great
Northern Hotel. Rates reasonable.

HISTORY   OF    THE   KOOTENAY.
A complete 'ilistory of tlie Kootenay
country, from tiie eai'liest'days to the
present time, is being-compiled "by R. T.
Lowery. Exi>erienced'' men with; valuable information would"confer ■ a favor
by sending tlieir address, to this olKce.
CENSUS HETURNS.
Hon. Col. Baker has handed down
to the House, a- return; showing'the
ex&ct number of inhabitants in the.
province—a matter greatly debated
and tlie cause of much bitter feeling
among the rival papers on the coast.
Vancouver Island is credited with
27,997 whites,."-5.440 Indians, 3,299
Chinese and 29 half breeds;, while the
Mainland shows 37,293 whites, 17,283
Indians, 6,038 Chinese, and 201 half-
breeds—making a total population of
98,170
A. Campbell Eedclie, Deputy Clerk
of the Executive Council, asserts,
however,: that whereas the enumerators did not penetrate into the Yukon
country, there has been an omission
of 11,939 persons, chiefly Indians.
This conclusion is arrived at by estimates furnished by the Indian De_
partment. It would have incurr ed a
great deal of expense and hardship
upon the enumerators to have covered
the extreme northern .portion Of the
province, and several months must
have elapsed ere tlie work could
have been completed.
Section 3 of the' terms under which
British Columbia entered tlie Confederacy stipulates that until the population reaches 400,000, a per capita
grant of 80 cents shall be paid annually to the Local Government.
Were tlie omission permitted to stand
the Provincial Treasury would be
mulcted out of a considerable sum
every year, but the Committee of the
Executive Council 'will insist that the
grant be paid also upon those not
enumerated by the census takers
For this meritorious action on the
part of the Committee, the Finance
Minister will no doubt be duly thankful.
Accompanying the return is an explanatory letter to Hon. Mr. Davie
from E. E.,Gosnell, the chief enumerator, who insists that the Dominion
authorities are at fault, and that instead of a total population of 110,112,
the figures should show 109,969 persons. If the Federal authorities feel
disposed to make a grant above what
is exactly due the province, surely
the Victoria officials are not so Puritanical in their scruples as to refuse
the generous donation!
If such be the case then Messrs.
Kitchen, Cotton, and others of that ilk,'
must be greatly at fault.

The Bland Bill for the coinage of
silver seigniorage and silver bullion
in the Treasury has passed the American House ■ of Eepresentatives • by a
vote of 167^0 130. "
Our temperance friends will not
relish the treatment accorded a certain resolution introduced into the
Legislature last week by Messrs.
Keifch and Kiteb en. for the absolute
prohibition of intoxicating liquors
within the sacred precincts of the
Parliament'' buildings. The resolution was negatived by a vote of 17 to
14. .-■■■ a   ■
Hon. Mr. Davie  has s'ated to the
Legislature that a proposition is about
to be made to the Government, and
which will undoubtedly be accepted,
for the building of a railway' into
Cariboo, for a subsidy of 130,000 per
year for 30 years, and (», 000 acres of
land per mile  in alternate sections,
the land to be given with guarantees
to protect public interests. "
• Messrs. Connolly and McGreevy,
the celebrated boodlers, have been
released from prison by order of the
Governor General, acting upon the
suggestion of the Dominion Cabinet.
This step wras prompted by the verdict of a committee of physicians, who
j eported thefc the health of the prisoners would be endangered by further
coo linemen t. The worthy couplet
had been in jail just 1C 3 days.
The Prov:ncial Government has
abandoned the Labor Bureau Act
Amendment Bill for the session, because of tlie receipt from the British
au ■ lioi''1 tiers-- of a mass of negative ev1-
dence. It is purposed to issue a com
mission at the conclusion ofthe present session ofthe LegVatir.e to gather
information on tlie subject f hroughout

It now appears •'hat wre sorJl have

Ke.Hie and Has kins being mentioned

■election.for the  then undivided district, ' 'Let 'er Fl ickcr" bei ng re .urn-
ed by a very narrow majoritv.    To
make a selection between the three is
not at all palatable to the electors at
this end.    The general belief is that
it will not be a quesf.on of fitness, but,
who can get the most tangible recognition at the  hands of the Davie administration— provided  that  august)
body shouid be successful at the polls ? I

s  p THE DALLES RAPIDS,
The pifficulty to he Overcome by a
Railway.
Washington advices state that P.
P. Mohrhas placed the bonds of his
railway around the Dalles and will
leave for Spokane to let the contract
for construction.    The proposition to
build ten iriiles okroad, round The
Dalles of the Columbia and thus connect the "boat traffic on each side of it
has been a pet scheme of Mr. Mohr's
for sonie time.    He has endeavored
several times to float the necessary
bonds lor its construction and equip-
~ ment, but each time something' turned
■;.. up to prevent  it, and the matter was
o   thought to; have been dropped.    Mr.
• Mohr, however, it seems, never gave
up,the scheme, and he will soon have
the road under construction.
The Dalles are the greatest impediment to navigation on the Columbia.
Boats ascend to them and also run
from The Dalles to the Cascades locks,
but the difficulty of making the portage at the former place was always a
drawback to traffic. When the proposed road is completed it will-open
navigation on the river as far as the
Cascade, locks.

week.
Several parcels of local realty have
changed hands recently at pretty
stiff figures.
Misses Julia and Lyda Corning* departed to join their mother in Kaslo
yesterday morning.
Geo. Jordan, of Fire Valley, came
up on Saturday to spend a few days
with his -brother, F. W. Jordan, J. P.

A Washington miner had a golid'
watch and $280 in money stolen from
him while asleep in a Kaslo hotel a
few nights ago.
J. T. Nault, W. C. Muirhead, and
a party of 16 men, left last week for
"Wilson Creek, where they will erect
an hotel, store and other buildings
for the first-named party.     ,
S. M.  Wharton arrived   in   New
Denver on Monday.   He brought in
in a planer for his mill, and his enthusiasm relative to the future of N«w
' Denver is as great as ever.
Tne Province is the name of anew
weekly paper published at Victoria.
It treats upon a variety of subjects,
all the articles showing more or less
ability, but decidedly apart from the
standard of a newspaper. Of course
it has come to stay.
Jack Walsh makes fast time with
his stage to Slocan Lake., He frequently drives through in four hours,
and he goes so fast in some places
that you have to hold your feair on.
He gets passengers through on time
and never meets with an accident.
New Denver will have a grand
time Friday evening. An entertainment in honor of St. Patrick will be
given in Ayl win's hall, and as the
best local talent has been secured for
the occasion, the event will be one
that will not be forgotten for some
time.
C. W. Vanderberg and F. M. Ying-
ling, proprietors of the Arrow, have
taken up land on Trout Creek, at the
Narrows, which they purpose clearing
at once. They will go in for the
raising of hops and frftit on an extensive scale, their example to be followed by a number of others.
F. W. Jordan, J.P., returned on
Sunday night from SicamoRS, whither
he had accompanied his wife on her
way to Mara. They had a successful
trip out, making Ricamous the same
day the.7, left here. Returning Mr.
Jordan experienced a pleasant tramp
of 18 miles before he reached the
steamer.
Curly Robinson is on the night shift
in the Globe Cate, Kaslo.    After mid
night he gives a recitation with every
meal free of charge. His latest tragedy is The Iron Gall Club of Nakusp.
Every time he recites it he puts in $42
worth of pathos. This much pathos
generally makes the audience shed
big, juicy tears. Curly should be an
actor, and allow the world to appreciate his delineations of life as it is in
this glorious Kootenay of ours.
