P. Burns Old Building Gutted—
Fire Brigades do Splendid
Work-R. N. Doyle's Residence Saved.
One of tbe most disastrous iireB
that haa occurred for some time in
Kevelstoke took place last night
shortly before eight o'clock, resulting
in tbe total loss of the big building
owned by the P Burns Co. and occupied by the Mountain Supply Oo. The
first alarm was given by several persons who noticed heavy s.uoke issuiug
from the building, while a sudden
glare lighting up tbe sky gave anxious
evidence of a  blaze well   under way.
The fire evidently broke out in Ihe
ground lloor, an overheated stove
being responsible for the blaze, and
from what can be gathered the lire
was burning a considerable time before
tbe fact was noticed. As soon ns the
alarm was rung in to No. 2 brigade,
the fire boys promptly responded and
in spite of the intense cold succeeded
in getting to work in a remarkably
short time. By this time the fire
had gained a good bold on the building which was as dry as match wood
and at first il seemed as if tbe brigade
could control it before the Humes
spread through the whole building.
A sirong westerly wind was blowing
which fanned the ll.unes iuto a furnace and an alarm was rung in to No.
1 brigade, who turned out in a very
few minutes and gnl to woik.
Ch efa Foote mid Abrahamson directed tlieir chief efforts to saving the
residence of It N. Bo. le, w b.ch b"ii g
in clos-e proximity to tue burning
building, wan in extreme danger, and
while the brigade kept check on the
flames willing helpers hurriedly removed all the furnit ire and effects
Irom tbe house. In spite of a splendid water pressure and the well directed streams from several nozzles, tbe
flames swept through tbe building,
the roof and front structure falling in
with a terrible crash, sending showers
nf sparks and long tongues of flame
many yards into the air. The brigades
worked splendidly, although againBt
heavy odds, the intense cold, 20 below
zero being responsible for many cases
of frozen toes and fingers. As fast as
the water fell it froze and in tiie middle of the fierce furnace could be seeu
icicles hanging from the blackened
wood work.
The building contained a large
stock ol gonc-al _.ooils including several car loads of bay, rice and oats,
,the greedy fUmes licking up those
articles rapidly. About eleven o'clock
the building was a heap ol burning
ruins, the flames, in spite ol the concentrated streams of water, holding
tbeir own.
The Bight was n magnificent oue,
the glare being seen for miles round,
and as tbe fire ran through the structure the wood work* seemed to melt
into it. Early in the evening it was
realized that the building was doomed
for nothing could combat with such a
furnace, fed by inflammable material
and aided hy un icy gale that literally
forced tbe flames the entire length of
tbe building.     It  wns not until after
2 a.m. that the strenuous efforts of
the brigades ceased, the fire being
practically out except for tho inusses
of smouldering hay and tice tbst
seemed to defy the tons of water that
were poured unceasingly oo it.
Fighting file under such conditions
is hard, cruel work, jet both brigades
stood manfully to tlieir work, the
w»ter freezing on tbeir clotbes, their
hands num lied with cold as tboy held
the rigid hose. The work done was a
credit to I he city against ovcrwhelmiii
odds, and although the buildiug could
not be saved there was the satisfuc
tion in preventing the Doyle rcsidenci
from being destroyed. By il o'clock
thiB morning the wster was turned oH
and the brigades were called off, ii
being deemed safe to cease pouring
water on the ruins. The work of un
coupling tbe hose was perhaps one oi
the cruelist parts of the business, foi
the ice was caked io maises round
every joint. Fortunately no one bus
taiued any serious injury except loi
several of the brigade having frozei
hands and leet.
A groat feature ol the lire was tha
perfect haimony prevailed, every ma'
doing l.ia utmost to combat with thi
To Mayor Lindmark is due th
thanks and praise of all who took ps'
n last night's lire, for it was he wh
was responsible for keeping up the III
iring i ffiirts oi the Bremen, ciiuaing
liberal supply of hot Coffee uud  otbe
stimulants to be given round and ar | rt 011/101
ranging with the Windsor Hotel for »   OVllllUL
generous supper for all who wanted it.
Mr. Lindmark hy his thoughtful and
generous action during the lire iu eu-
couraging the men nnd  looking after
tlieir comfort worked as hard as any
one, and  bis actions cannot be ton
highly approved.   The Windsor Hotel
also did all tbey could to Burnish the
half frozed  men with warm beverages,
for  which'all  who  took part in the
fight wore vi ry grateful.
We understand tbat the damage
is by no means covered by Insurance,
Messrs. Kincaid .v Anderson issuing
the policies.
Uncalled for Delay in Completion Creates Discontent.
Considerable dissatisfaction is being
felt by   the   general   public  over the
fact that the   auxiliary   gas prodr.cer
machinery which was to havo ensured
the  city   continuous   light     in   all
wetttier, is still idle and that iu spite
of   the   heavy expense entailed in its
purchase, aB yet the  city  is no better
off.   Unfortunately when the contract
was  made  witb  the Canada Foundry
Co. for its purchase and erection, no
time  for   completion  was stipulu ed,
consequently   the   contractors    bave
practically done   as  tbey piease   aud
here we   are   without   a   certainty ol
light service with  this costly machiu
ery so lar  useless.   The citizens were
promised   that   the   auxiliary engine
sh old   be   in operation   by February
PJU8,  or   by   .nay at least.    Slackness
is   at ibe back  of it all and the good
neople ot Revelstoke  are clamoring to
»ee sume return for ihe enormous .tit..

Foiiudry Co.   do   uoi  Keep me Confidence of  ibe public in ihetr woik, ihe
producer of tuai city being practically
a white   elephaut   to the community
Wuile we do not wish to condemn our
own plant   or the  Foundry Co. before
we have   had a thorough test of  tbe
producer   installed   bere, yet   at   the
same   tinu  the uncalled for and outrageous delay in tbe completion of the
work and ita efficiency as an auxiliary
proved   can   not   be   allowed to j aas
uncnticized.     The  people   want  at
least some return for their money.
Severe Weather Prevents Full
Monday, Jan. 4, was to have been
the opening day for the schools for the
wi.iter term, but owing to tbe severity
of the weather and tne bKmuu-d thai
was blowing it was decided that the
children bhould not he compelled to
attend until the weather moderated.
As far as cun ba ascertained there will
be quite a number of new pupils this
term, but Until the schools have really
resumed their regular work anything
definite will not be available, Mr. Pollock has assumed bis duties as princi-
pnl, and in his hands there is no doubt
that the same success and harmonious
feelings that existed throughout every
class room will continue to prevail.
Mr. E. I). Colpitis ol Grimsby, Ont.,
has been appointed itsaistunt. principal
There bus been no other changes in
the personel of the teaching staff of
the Public School. In the High School
Mr. McLaurin is still principal, while
Mr. Leet has been appointed to succeed Mr. HI, K. Long, ol Qn'Appolle,
Sask. Elsewhere in this issue will he
found a list of promotions of pupils.

The following editorial note of
the Vancouver World, the Liberal
paper of Vancouver, represents
j very accurately the general feeling
among the Liberals of the Province
with'reference to the new minister
of public works, the Honorable
Thomas Taylor of Hevelstoke:
The World says: "Considerable

While wi- an ul opinion that
much can ye! be done to improve
the timber law- by giving greater
security of title and to meet new
conditions that are constantly
arising and formulate a policy
looking to the conservation of our
timber resources, we feel sure
that iill who ni'' interested in the
-access of thai important industry
will agree with u- in stating that
in Mr, Taylor they have a man
who will not cease his efforts to
bring aliout the legislation which
is necessary lo put our timber laws
in ihe same satisfactory condition
that our mining laws are in.
Mr. Taylor will be in charge of a
large spending department of the
government, and bis reputation for
absolute honesty ami intensity is a
safe guarantee lhat he will so conduct the affairs of his department
as to give no cause for criticism or
charges of favoritism.
Mr. Taylor has hosts of friends
all over Ibis province who will
hear with pleasure of his return
when he presents himself for reelection at an eai ly date.

drawn to an article in the lust issue
of Unit latest jouwalistio abortion,
the Observer, which makes the charge
Unit while 1 was secretary of the board
of police commissioners 1 omitted to
enter on the minute book a resolution
pas ed at the first meeting of the commissioners relative to ridding the town
of professional gamblers, etc. This is
a serious charge, and was made in the
first instance by a man who, while lie
is an ignorant man, ought to know
better, and is a charge which 1 do not
propose to let [insfl, because it is false.
The man who made it and the man
who published it are both oonlemptible
Hiirs, wbicli is an expression that the
Observer man evidently thinks peculiarly li b him, because he put the cap
on in his last issue.
To prove to your many readers that
what. I sny is true, I attach below a letter signed by Chief Bain and Commissioner Armstrong, both of whom were
ut the meeting at which the imaginary
resolution is stated to have been
Kevelstoke, B. C, Dec. 81, 1008,
G. S. McCarter, iisij.,
Revelstoke, B. C.
1)i:ak Si it,—We beg to state that
wo were present at the lirst meeting of
the Board of Police Commissioners
for 1908, which waa the only meeting
at which all tl
confidence and respeot are worth
having, and Unit I will be here continuing to enjoy that confidence nnd
respect long alter my detractors have
passed off the scene and ihe remembrance of (be Observer man will be
hki the reini'iiihruiice of a had dream.
Now let us hope that "Old Hot Air
Johnnie " will ho good.
Yours truly,

Passes Quietly in Revelstoke—
Usual Customs Observed.
The year lOON has run its course
antl bus now vanished into the dim
shndiiwlaud nt the past. Like all
other years it has brought varied
fortunes to various people, places,
communities and countries, It is tbo
good fortune nf Kevelstoke to he able
to sny that its joys have far exceeded
its sorrows, and it leaves behind it a
oup overflowing witb promises ol ihe
good doiii(',8 for the year just dawned.
New Year's Day passed off very
quietly in this city, the weat her being
intensely cold.    Outdoor amusements
were greatly curtailed, although several sleigh parties were abroad, Skating
in the rink was the chief form of
amusement. There was the customary visiting in sochil circles, as well aB
to the hotel bins, and money was not
so scarce that il could not provide all
ol the cullers with the "wee drappie."
Sumptuous dinners were provided
at the lintels und restaurants, and the
evenings were given up to social talk
and old time yarns of Revelstoke's
cirly history, One feature of the day
was that few if any under the influence
were seen on the streeis, which speaks
well for the town where drunkenness
is supposed to he so prevalent. Noth
ing more oi importance can he chronicled, except Unit the New Year was
ushered in by the whole oity in various
ways and the general health was
toasted to the incoming year with
expressions and wishes lor prosperity
and peace.

Physical Department Gives Ex

The physical department of the Y
M. C. A. were at home on Friday
night of New Year and entertained a
large gathering ol their ftici.ds and
patrons. These New Year entertain
niehts by the Y. . C. A. are always
popular, an evidence of the pride taken
in the work ot the association by the
citizens. Every available apace nf
seating accommodation on the tloor of
the large gymnasium, tlie largest in
the west, was tilled by interested spec
talors, while the spacious galleries
:ommiasioners were: romi(i the building were crammed.
The programme was ol a varied
nature. Club swinging by seniors, followed by an excellent gymnastic exhibition on the horse and parallel
bars snd pyramids by the inter-
mediates made up the lirst part of the
programme, .vieiitiou must be made
"f the line display of mat diving by
the intermediates, where neck breaking nights were skillfully carried out
The Beniors gave a splendid exbihi
tion of vaulting horse work and
pyramids, while Messrs. Veith, Hope,
Lee and Norris did strong work on
the horizontal bar. Woodland, Lee
mid Williams gave a line performance
of special mat work, and Mr. Veith
brought a first class cntortaiumeut to
a close by a very effective display ol
illuminated club swinging. The visitors were afterwards regaled with refreshments, while a musical chorus
made a pleasant diversion in the programme, The visitors took keen interest iu the association building and
equipment, which are second to  none

hold before the apparatus could be
employed, Unfortunately the nearest
hydrant was situated near the liquor

delay was caused by the brigade
having to tnke tlieir hose such a long
iiistitnco. The damage in considerable
