MILLIONS OF FEET OF
LUMBER ARE BURNED
last Year's Cut of Lee Lumber
Co. at Wigwam Goes up in
Spectacular Blaze
Fire in the Lee Lumber yard ot
Wigwam yesterday destroyed 1»-
tweeh two and three million leet ol
lumber valued at n-enrly $60,000, and
at present forest flreB are smouldering uway on both sides of the track
threatening large timber areas.
Thc lire started yesterday about
noon and is supposed to have been
caused by a spnrk Irom a locomotive
wliicb passed through that section
about 11 o'clock, but the origin ot
the blaze is in doubt us it was fully
an hour afterward thut any flames
at all were noticeable. The men bad
all gone to their dinners and on their
return thc blaze wns seen running up
the lumber pile, and fanned by a
stiff breeze, swept along the roof of
the lumber sheds until In a few minutes the win'le yard was one mass of
flames. Tlie steadily increasing wind
started in towards the mill of the
company, and at first it looked as
though it were an utter impossibility
to save it, but fortunately the wind
changed, thus saving both it and the
adjacent houses.
To attempt to save any of thc
lumber once the lire gained a headway were utterly futile as the efforts
of the mill men were directed towards keeping the mill roof and
nearby buildings damp and thereby
saving them from catching tire from
the burning embers which flew in all
directions. The intense heat caused
by the blaze succeeded in firing the
track and several hundred yards of
this was partially burned and a number of rail lengths were badly twisted by the heat. Burning embcrB flying across the track also set fire to
dry stumps and ripening hay and incipient blazes on all sides threatened
adjoining buildings, while Mr. A. McGregor's outfit cars on the siding
were only moved just in time to save
them from being destroyed. The station and section house were both saved. Telegraph and telephone poles
along the route of the fire were burned down an-d the south train was de-
luyed several hours as owing to the
intense heat it was impossible to approach the track to repair it to permit of safe passage. The train, however got through to Arrowhead at 7
p.m.  and  returned at once.
The flames, as can be imagined,
when given full sway among such a
large quantity of lumber leapt high
in the air and the blaze was a most
spectacular one lighting up the sky
for miles uround and enveloping the
mountain sides adjacent in a pall of
smoke.
No water being handy it was utterf
ly impossible to do anything with the
blaze, but a continuous stream was
kept playing on the mill till all danger was past.
The lumber men and a gang from
this city turned out to light tbc fire
and but lor their hcrioc efforts the
mill would certainly have been reduced to ashes. Thc lumber which was
destroyed was all last year's cut and
was very dry and closely piled. It
was classed as tirst class goods and
would have ibrought a very high price
tbis fall.
The C.P.R. train crew say tbat the
lire could not have been caused from
a passing engine as no irain had passed through there since un hour before the blaze was noticed.
Another bush fire has been raging
in the vicinity of Three Valley for
the past twenty-four hourB and is
rapidly sweeping over a cut over
area. Une camp of the Dominion
Sawmills Ltd., was completely burned, out, but reports received at
the bead office here state tbat there
Is little real damage done und the
blaze is in slashing and is rushing
towards an aiea already burned over.
RepurtB were also current that thc
tne *. "iK-'ds along the line of tho C.
P.R. were burned, but ihis thc C. P.
R. deny. Firee were also raging ut
Galena Hay.
The different fires ure all in the Dominion belt and thc authorities state
that never has there licen such u
willingness     OD  the part  of     lumber
men and volunteers 10 quench     the
flames.
Thc lumber of the Leo Lumber Co.
wns insured with the Revelstoke General Agencie- for *$7,r>0i) and with the
Kootenuy Agencies for $15,000. Thc
latter company carried $5,000 apiece
with the Commercial Union, the
lliif.-b American and the London,
L.verpoul und Globe.
A report is also current thnt thc
sawmill at Bdgcwood has been burned.
Loggers Awful Experience
Halcyon, B. 0., June 58.—With a
raft made of logs, on which lie was
trying to reach Nakusp from here, an
unknown Swede wus picked up by W.
Boyd of the Halcyon Springs hotel,
on Friday last in a state of collapse
He had been battling,against, a heavy
wind, following along the shore when
he fell exhausted across the stationary platform built by him to stand
on. He was brought here where he
was treated, and tells a burrowing
tale of his experience. He had been
without food for many hours when
rescued.

Since tho high water mark of thc

by comparison with that figure and
any statistics since kept or given

that guage.
On thc first pier ou the city side
i; the railway bridge over thc Col -
uiiibia river is a board neatly measured oil in feet and at the top is a

Montreal,     Juno  50—The  scientific
discussion     which     has been waxing
warm of late as to whether it would
be    possible  to    make   the    St.   Lawrence   river  an   all   the   year       round
navigable stream wns given a      new
fillip  this  week when  Dr. Olgur  Man-
heiin,   consulting  engineer   on    rivers
nml  harbors  to the  Norwegian gov -
ernment, who is finishing a tour   of
Investigation  of  tiie  principal  waterways of  this     continent,    suggested
that it. might be mon   practicable to
pay moro attention lo summer conditions on  Canada's great river. The
cltscUBSion      was   originally      started
when a report to tho government by
In*. Howard T. Haines,  professor   ol
physics at  McGill  University,       and
world  famous  as  an  ice expert,     was
nia.le public.     Dr. Barnes said winter navigation  of the     St.  Lawrence
was quite  possible.     Engineers,  rlv-
ernien   and   others  split   on   his   opinion.        Some stooil    with  him,  sum.'
against.      Then   Drf   Maiiheim     came
along  and  turned  the   public       mind
to summer  navigatlan with a brand
new theory.      Dr.  Magheim     believes
that  millions  now  spent   in  dredging
may  bc saved and that tbe low water  period  in the autumn  may  be entirely  eliminated.
"1   do   not  know   win*ther  it       lias
been suggested in  this country."    he
said,   "hut.  T   believe  that  regulation
or  conservation   of  the  water     would
solve  the  problem  far  more  cheaply
ond      lastingly      than    by  dredging.
When I was in Cornwall I took a little motor boat and went up    to   the
foot of the Long Sault rapids, where
1   understand   it  is  proposed  to  dam
the  St.   Lawrence for  tlie  purpose of
providing  water  power  to  the towns
on the  Canadian  and  American shor-
I do not mean that the darning
should be done* particularly  [or water  power  development,  but  for bettering    navigation.        The  dam      at
Long  Sault I believe  will  make that
part of the river into a  quiet navigable  stream,   Instead   of   the   dangerous  passage  it.  is now.      It  will  not
divert any  water from the river, but
will bold  back and thus  regulate the
depth for miles  to the  westward.
"The time will come when similar
works will Iw required at other
points on the St. Lawrence; that ie
to say, regulating dams will have tc
be built to conserve the water and
maintain a high enough level for thc
navigation of large  vessels."

The City of the Interior!
A Retrospect
Twenty years ago she was but a little
village of four or five hundred. You could
in half an hour count every house. Then
you had no faith in her possibilities for
growth and you didn't invest your earnings. You passed the opportunity up and
to-day you are not much further ahead.
The City of Steady!
A Regret
Have you been a Rip Van Winkle and
slept for these past twenty years ? If so
you must now wake up to the possibilities
of the next twenty years and regret your
inaction. Sit down and look yourself in
the face, ask yourself if you have acted
wisely Be honest about it and answer the
question in all seriousness.
If you invest in Revelstoke Property now, you are investing in a sure i|

A Prospect
With the surety that Pulp, Paper and
Lumber Mills are to be established here,
you know that this City must go ahead
in leaps and bounds in the next few years.
Can you afford to let the opportunity of
becoming independent slip by for ever?
Just look ahead. With the increased development, property must advance correspondingly and if you act now you are the
winner.
A Resolve
Decide right now. If you want a Lot
or a few lots, get them now before they
double or treble in value. Make up your
mind right now that there will be no more
of that Rip Van Winkle business for you.
Thousands of homes will be needed for the
large number of workers in these various
enterprises and you don't want to be forced
to live out in the suburbs owing to the increased price of property. Think it over
and decide at once.
