Several Hundred Thousand Feet
of Logs go up in SmoKe-
Mill Completely Destroyed
The Bowman Lumber Co.'s mill
and plant, valued at somewhere between •$40,(1(10 and $50,000, together
,«illi about live or six hundred thoiis-
11111I feet ol Blorage logs were com-
uletely ilestroycl on Monday night
in one of the mosl spectacular tires
thut ever visited this city.
The lirst. alarm was turned In about
10:30 and people rushed Irom thc
bouses to lind the sky lurid with ool-
or and the mill completely enveloped
in Humes, which were entirely be -
yond the power of any human agency
either to control or allay. The arrival ol both volunteer lire brigades m
full force very shortly after the alarm sounded, failed to make any impression on the fire as thc inllamable
nature of the material of which the
mill was composed was an easy prey
to the llames and burned luridly till
the whole thing fell in a heap of livid ashes.
The brigades, recognizing the (utility of any efforts on their part to extinguish the lire at the mill, set
themselves to the task of preventing
its sprcaaing as a number of build -
ings around thc place, thousands of
feet of logs and millions of leet l of
lumber in close proximity v.-* re in
immediate danger. Incipient biases,
however. loomed up on all s'te
among the logs, in the lumber aid
among the dry stumps in neighboring
fields. To the south of the      mill
however, was a huge pile "f l"gs,
and 111 this near the spur tra k :.n
incipient blaze started and gained
such headway before the hose coi'1.1
he turned on it that the whole liie
was doomed to destruction uuu were
completely destroyed. It v.as here
with the exception of the mi'l that
the greatest loss was r.xptMwoced,
there being between 500,0J0 and tl.0,-
000 feet of logs stored. Se.1r.1l carloads of logs standing CO 'lie sp'^r
track were also in grave danger and
frequently caught fire. These taxed
the efforts of the firemen until an
engine arrived from the y.irls end
hauled five or six of them nwav to a
place of safety. One still remained,
and this car and its contents, i.'.irli
were badly burned, were the Immediate means of saving a numlier of
dwellings to the north.
Fortunately the wind was .nl, until about midnight, when a blight
breeze sprung up from the ninth but
in that direction there was very little danger of damage being done, as
only one or two houses and the incinerator of the mill were located
on that side. Had a strong wind
been blowing in the opposite direct -
ion the whole of the centre portion
of the city would have been in grave
The mill which was the only one in
the city, employed a gang of between
forty and lifty men, some twelve or
fourteen of whom had been working
in the premises till about 11:30 of the
night of the fire. After that time a
Hindoo night watchman was employed. Shortly after the men had
knock ofl work a slight blaze Btartfld
over to the south of tbc donkey engine whicli was used for unloading
logs. While attempting to extinguish this a spark from the blaze
must have lit on the roof of the mill
and the lire started. Thc Hindoo
immediately climbed to the roof and
dashed a pail of water on tbe blaze,
but the flames had burned through
the roof and with the water the burn
ing embers fell through to the inflammable material below and the
mischief was started. He immediately blew the whistle ot the mill
und then turned in the alarm, bui
before thc brigades arrived the blaze
was beyond control.
The loss to the mill which is approximately $30,000 was covered by
insurance to the amount of $36,70(1
in the 'following companies:—With
the Revelstoke General Agencies, Aetna, $3,000; Norwich Union, $1,800;
North British Mercantile, $5,000;

Two years in pen penitentiary at

process at the Oriental hotel some
weeks ago. The case was heard -before Judge Wilson last Friday ami
the prisoner wns taken to the coast
that, evening.
In company with him was "Frcn-

Work Being Pushed on Revelstoke Group
Work on the big gold strike on Mr.
McEachren's property opposite Green-
slide just south of thiB city, is continuing most satisfactorily. The men
are now engaged in stripping and
clearing away the loose rock from
the face of the ore body. It is the
intention of the owner to increase
the number of men employed and
start permanent development work
and thc establishment of a 10 stamp
There is sufficient water power from
the creek on the property, which can
be augmented by other streams us
work warrants. The high grade ore
is continuing ns the work progresses.
There is no doubt but that the Revelstoke group, which Mr. McEachren
has named it, will be one of the biggest gold shippers in B. 0. The lead
is over 300 feet wide and is well on
to three miles long as far as prospected at present. There arc fourteen claims located on this lead and
they are divided into three groups.
The work now being done is one the
Hed Rock claim of thc Revelstoke
grouti, but as more miners will be
put to work the three groups will be
thoroughly  developed.
Besides the big gold values, there
is some splendid vein ore, one shoot
carrying good values in silver. The
impression is that from the appenr-
ance ot the ore'there should be big
values in plgtimun. Platinum today is twice as valuable as gold, the
market value being aboot $40 per
ounce. Assays by the Dominion
government and private assayers in
the east are now being made of the
ore, whieh returns will be awaited
with interest.    *
First of the Kind Captured Alive
in This Vicinity for Forty
Years-Very Valuable Animals
Two growling grizzly bear cubs ami
two of the cutest little black Teddy
bears you ever laid your eyes ou arc
In captivity in this city, and this
miniature menagerie may be seen any
day, hy interested spectators, at the
rear of tin* Victoria hotel in lower
The grizzlies are ferocious looking
animals who growl and snarl their
dis approval at the approach of a
stranger, but they are securely chained and can't hurt you unless you get
familiar with them or get within
chain's length. Their bristling grey
tipped hair stands on end when they
are brought out for inspection; their
noses curl upas they growl and their
eves sparkle savagely as they watch
their opportunity to grab anything
or anybody in sight, and it i** not
safe for anybody but thoir keeper to
touch them. Hut the lit lie black
Teddys are perfect dears and will
stand for any amount of coddling
and caressing. In fact they will
climb down off their perches to grei*t
you when they see you coming nnd
will eat out of your hand.
The little black fellows ure easily
caught, but it is indoed a novelty to
see the grizzly fellows in captivity.
It is said that this is the first pair
that has been captured alive in this
vicinity for forty years. Thc latter
animals did not, however, su'imit to
the chain without a struggle, as the
keeper's hands show indisputable
signs of a fierce. light to capture
them alive.
It was between the Big Mouth and
Canoe river the animals were captured on May 30th by Louis Tinnis and
Ray Aikins. The former iB one of
thc most experienced bear hunters in
this section and the latter has been
his partner for some time. Sixteen
large bear hides and thc four much-
alive cubs Were the result of their
recent hunt.
The captive grizzlies are considered
to be very valuable animals as the
owners are besieged with offers for
them—one such offer being $250 apiece
made by the authorities ot the Banff
National Park, hut the owners have
declined the offer believing they can
secure much more for the animals.
The cubs were brought into the
eity on  Sunday.
Contractors Getting Ready for
Quick Work on Bnilding
The new Court house, the tender for
which has been let to Foote & I'rad-
olini, will lie commenced right away
as soon as the material can bo got
on the ground, said the contractors,
when approached on the subject yesterday.
It will require an initial force of
men numbering at least forty, aud
this will bc increased as thc work
proceeds, as it is Imperative that the
roof be put on the building by No-
.ember of this year.
The timber and lumber for thc
alibiing has been ordered from the
.■oast, said Mr. Pradolini, as it is
impossible to secure suitable material hen* for such a building aud the
narble  will   be secured  from  NelBon.
Thc contractors have no fear whatever of being ahlc to obtain tbe nec-
ssary quota of mechanics and wl'U
■Kit bc in any way affected by the
i -trikc in Vancouver.
The work of moving the old building to make ro0m for the new will
■ommence either today or tomorrow.

No dcubt a great number have read of this subdivision in the newspapers recently, and if you have
you are fciire to be acquainted with the success oi our Name Competition, which was assuredly the greatest of its kind ever held in the Province. As evidence of this the number of letters received goes to prove.
There were over 5000 letters received, containing over 10,000 names of competitors, and from these
competitors over 15,000 names for the subdivision suggested, From amongst the 15,000 names
" MONTRELYNVIEW" was selected by our Board of Directors as being the most appropriate.

Mr. McNoil  is picturesque in his    remarks  thut  thia  decree  will      stand
Iiy virtue of     "its intrinsic merits."
Will ho kindly explain how it is tbat
in two countries such as Italy     and '
Hungary—countries where Papal law j
has been in foroc lor centuries,    they
cannot     seo its     "intrinsic merits."
Germany  also,   which  is nearly    half I
Roman Catholic,  has forbidden      its]
promulgation.     Is it because of fro-1
testant indifference, and her political
supremacy  in  Canada  that sho ventures     enforcing    it in this country.'
Mr. McNeil insinuates, if he docs not
openly  say  so,   that  tbe  civil  law is !
attempting   to   invade   tho   "church," I
i.e., tho Roman Catholic church
Is it not a itiBe of the 1'apacy in-
trading tho civil law.' Then why has
Italy, long in subjection to the Papacy, where Protestantism has never
bail tbe ghost of a chame, seen fit to
tako the whole matter of marriage
out of the bands of the church, and
make it a distinctly civil contract,
and make it criminal for a priest to
enter a house and in any way trifle
with the marriage relations? Will
i he kindly explain the equality and
supremacy of thc Eccliastical ileeree
; in the Province of Quebec'.' Vide tho
Hebert case. I
Mr.  McNeil says  there  is no  injus-
, tioe to Protestants in this decree.  A
! concrete   example   stands   in   contra -
j dii'tion.      Take  the  Hebert  case    referred to  in  the Province of  Quebec.
; Tho Hebert couplo were duly and leg-
I ally married some two years ago by
a Methodist minister.     The husband,
! desirious  of      a  separation,   goes  to
I Archbishop   Bruschi,   who   pronounces
the marriage void.     Tbe injured wife
j takes  the matter to the courts.       A
Roman  Catholic and  French      judge
sustains the  decision  of the  ArchtrlB-
op.     The  wife is driven from      her
home with the     brand of a mistress
upon her,  and her innocent girl that
of a bastard.     Think of the immorality of tbe  decision— its  heartless -
ness and injustice.      And  Mr. McNeil
cooly says   people knew  thc  law,  let
them     take tbe consequents if they
break it.      A  man make law!     How
like the spirit of Jesus!      Let   there
be    no    misunderstanding—  plausible
and fallacious reasoning cannot alter
thc fact—the "Ne Temere decree"    in
its      workings  pronounces  thousands
as leading  immoral lives and      thus
offsprings as     bastards.     Out    upon
an ecdiasticism  wbich so warps      a
man's judgment and blinds his vision
as to support an  iniquitous      derree
so sad and terrible in its workings.
Tbe     union   of     two souls in  the
bonds  of  love  is  of  God  and  surely
above all   priestly  interference      and
priestcraft.      In  tbis  sense  marriage
is alone holy.     To make marriage a
sacrament is to do that which hns no
authority    from  the  New  Testament.

Mr. McNeil would have us to under
stand that the Papacy is very jeal -
oub of the institution of marriage.
It manifests this ill thc "Ne Temere
decree." The fact is that Rome has
played fast and loose with marriage.
She has done bo when it suited hei*
interests or for a consideration. Her
stand in this is hypocritical. Mr.
MeNeil ignores the tact that marriages ln this country are as a rule
performed under religious sanctions.
I object to his iibc of thc term non-

A very much one-sided ean.e ol
baseball followed between the Kamloops and Comaplix. The latter
team was very much handicapped
through bavins; had very little collective practice, consequently they
were very much outclassed by the
vs.tors from Kamloops, The had
beating which was handed them, however, was by no means any indication of tne strength of the batteries
—both Comaplix and Kamloops having splendid men in the box. but the
oultielding was poor. Many errors
were niaie, and Kamloops made a
large  number  of  her  runs  on  stolen
The most interesting and exciting
event of the afternoon, however, was
tbe lacrosse match between ihe Rovelstoke high school boys und tho
Vernon high school team. We might
as well admit right on tho start that
all the hoys ou the former team were
not boys of the school, but the great
majority cl thom were, and tbo cost
of them were young enough in years
ti at least be among the embryo
pedagogues, but tbe "boys" Irom
\ ernon must have been men picked
up Irom any and every place. How-
beit tbe local school boys won hands
down, and had the win been the other way It ■ ;.,) have been but very-
little satisfaction to them as they
were pitted In almost every cast
against hois much their juniors in
years, but however, the local boy.
outclassed the visitors in every po.nt
except roughness.
To sc the grit and pluckiness ot
the local sen ioi boys was a treat
and the visitors •'•'ere just fast en*
ough to make the gam one of the
m.'St interesting spectacl a that has
ever been played ofl on a 1 cal ti'ld.

The second game between Kam

tbe bleachers. In the first, part of
the game Burridge was easy meat for
the Kamloopians and they piled up
six runs in tbe second Inning. Budge
was taken ont of the l.i.s in favor of

The fact that Western Canada is
coming to occupy a prominent posi
tion on the map of the amusement
world, nnd thut English artists are
beginning to recognize the importance of this field, is shown hy the
attractions that have visited us this
season. Bdward Terry, Vesta Victoria, and the Bheftleld choir, huve
uli been in Western Oanada, and
scarcely have the melodious echoes
of the Sheffield choir died nway when
we bear the strain- i"f "What Oheer!
Knock 'em in lbe lll'l Kent Rond,"
ami lu, Chevalier, England's greatest
character artist ami truest coster
singer, is here! Chevalier was in
Winnipeg some years ago, but has
never been farther west. Those who
heard him then will recall how lirst
he told, in a long red coat, us "The
Veteran" ol his buy, "u chip ofl the
block ol a fighting stock," wbo was
keeping up the reputation ot his sire.
Then he danced back to sing "The
Future Mrs. 'Awlins," in the inimitable personation of the costermonger
He came again as "A Fallen Star"
a noor old tragedian, worn in mind
■and body, yul nursing the memories
of forty years ago when he was someone in thc show. Hack to the coster lund to tell uf "Our Little Nipper," and then lie gave ii lively lit-
irsters, ami then be gave a lively little French song as they do it in thc
music hulls ol l'aris. Hut the gem
0! his performance was the pathetic
old man, and good husbund in "My
Old Dutch."
Thus. Beech re grading Sixth St.,
Hush tunk near hospital had been
attended to; A.11. Oalder, re crossing un Douglas street, cannot see our
way clour to mnke the crossing until the street get tilled in; re electric
pule- un Fred Fruscr's lnnd, some-
| thing must he done, but we have
■ been waiting to see If tho road is to
he built lirst; re T. F. Sinclair's account, we have not had timo to go
over it yet.
Moved hy Aid. MeKinnon, seconded
hy Aid. Burlier, that the recommendations of the Public Works committee
he carried ont.
The chairman of the Public Works
committee stated thnt there wore
several pieces ol the roek crusher
that were short and thut ns soon us
they arrived he. will be in u position
to go ahead with the work ol pcrm-
i unetit rond building.
! Aid. MeKinnon referred to tho ques
tion of police clothing*, 'insurance on
city proporty, etc. The question of
the sti*eet sprinkler going to lower
town, the care ot boulevards and
licenses to travelling shows, etc.,
came up for discussion.
Moved hy Aid. Abrahamson, soc-
hy Aid. MeKinnon that the tux levy
