Working, have dribbled out during the
list thirty-six hours the story of the
worst disaster in the history of British
Columbia—ii disaster bo overwhelming
in respect of loss both of life and
property that the comparison with the
San Francisco calamity wli-ch at first
seemed somewhat absurd is hourly
becoming more and more terribly
The bush lands which still cover
most of the valley of the Elk River in
the Crow's Nest country are to-day
filled with lhe lire. The town of
Fernie has been wiped out and its
thousands of people are iu desperate
The best that can be said ot Hosmer
is that it may be safe—for tlie present
—but nntliing is certainly known.
Sawmills, coal reserves, staiifliog timber, business premises, homes, tithe

Estimates of the loss ot life are the
merest guesses, but there is good
reason to fear tlint the number will
run into Be vera I hundreds, each individual the victim of death in one of its
most awful and agonizing forms.
A brush fire hss been raging for
several days on the opposite Bide of
Elk river from Fernie and through
the Elk Lumber Co.'s limits near
Hosmer, Late on Saturday afternoon
the flames leaped across the stream
and their progress was irresistible.
At 4 p.m. the bu.li fire at Fernie
got beyond control and spread to the
city and in an incredibly short time
the whole city was a nui-s of flames,
destroying the eutire town, with the
exception of 17 dwellings, all rendering over 5,tK)0 people homeless.

The magnificent railway bridge of
the Great Northern, the lumber camp

Company's private bridge spanning
the Elk, connecting Fernie and West
Fernie, were all devoured in the tor-
rent ol flames.
All tlie buildings in the old town,
extending up Coal Creek, continuing
up to what is known as French town,
destroying everything in its coui'Be.
The dames leaped Coal Creek in a
jill'y, licketl up Edg cliff, the most
southerly bouse in that part. It came
across the C.P.R. trucks, burning the
coal chutes and the enr. on the siding
and it was Boon in the heart of the
city. The Humes coming [rem two
directions meeting in the heart of the
city ci ui fused the people so that
they scarcely knew from whence tho
greatest danger was approaching or
whether the road nf escape  was  open.
At Hosmer, a small lown that was
saved alter a hard struggle, Im.r are

into a tunnel snd was suffocated. A
man unknown and evidently burned
and mangled by falling timber, was
found in a sclioolhouse, where he had
crawled to die. In a cabin a woman
aud a child sutiocated in each other's
arms. Hosmer is iu the bottom ol a
deep trough, the sides ol which are

In the district swept by the Mames
there is estimated to have been some
7,000 people. Tiio thousand of tbeie

any trace of any of them.
The loss of life is variously estimated up to 500. The suffering and destitution is horrible. Thousands are
without food and shelter, and many
are said to have been cut off from
hope or aid.
Nelson raised $2,000 yesterday and
sent two carloads of feed and cl' tiling
to the scene. Vancouver wire.. $5,000,

Relief trains are still being rushed

shelter to the homcle-s thousands.
The federal government is taking
prompt action to give all possible
assistance to the fire sufferers in the
Fernie district. The Premier aud
Hon. Messrs. Templetnan and Oliver
have each sent messages asking for
details aa to the extent of the disaster
and how best aaaistauce can be rendered. The militia department stores
in British Columbia, including all
tents, blankets,etc., are already placed
at the disposal of the sufferers.

Eight Thousand Shop Men Quit

Tied Up.—Employees Went

Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 4—Ord*-a
were issued at noon by the executive
uf the C.P.R. shops union for a strike
over the entire system, to begin tu-
At 10 o'clock to morrow morning
8,000 employes of the Canadian Pacific
mechanical department will go on
strike, including all men between
Halifax and Vancouver. Thia statement waa ollicially made thia morning
by J. H. McVety, who has been acting
for the men of the iii.cliaiii.ml department. The poiitiim taken is that
thu men demand acceptance by the
company of the minority report,
signed by the representatives after
recent cincilliation meetings, and as
the company haa refuted to depart
from its ground, after having declared
its willingness to stand by the majority report, the strike appears inevitable.
The local shop employees and carmen went out on strike at. 10 o'clock
this morning. The men have nothing
to say and refuse to answer any
Supt. T. Kilpatrick said this morning that he had no information to
give us to the situation. The men
were out and all the company could
do was to keep their trains running.
It is rumored, without official en-
dorsation, that the engineers and
conductors will join the men in the
Htrike. If the locomotive engineers
do go into this strike they will be
breaking a long established precedent
never to go iuto a sympathetic strike.

Nelson's Taxation.
Nelson, B.C., Aug,4.—Iu striking
the rale of taxation (nr tbe year tlie
city council again adhered to th
policy which lias been its marked feature ever since the lirst, ye ir of its incorporation, refusing t • talc the improvements on hind, throwing the
burden nf taxes wholly up n the laud
itself and thereby rendering it unprofitable to hold land in the vicinity of
tlie hnsiness block* unimproved for
any length of time. Tho total assessed
valuation of real eslate and improvements amounts to $2,700,000, one-hall
ol which is the value of the laud antl
the other improvements. The tax on
land is 411 mill*, the tux on improvements is I mill, lu other words, the
revenue raised ia a lax of 2 1-5 per
cent on the total valuation. One
marked feature ot thia taxation, showing the interest the city take* in its
schools, is that ono third uf the revenue thus raised is on the upkeep and
building of schools.

The Price
A Plea for Co-operation—Citizens Must Help
The inauguration ol the iinnuul
Revelstoke Fall Kuir Iius marked an
Important epoch in the history of ihe
city a nd ilis'riet and one winch means
a very great deal for onr future prosperity and development. Fruitgrowing lins taken a rapid impetus in the
last year or twu and owing to the depression in railroad Lustiness and its
revenue in regard to citv prosperity,
the people naturally begun to turn
their eyes to oilier means of regaining
the guild time whioh llevelstnke lins
invariably enjoyed. We are nuw fully
alive to the possibilities that nnr soil
possesses and we can oonsoietltlously
advert ite these lands us, in every way,
desirable fur sell Ies, where money can
he made und homes established. Tlio
question of a f.iir has heen dtscusied
lor BOtue lime anil now thnt « delinite
decision has heen arrived at, a decision
which will lie unquestiuinhly a popn
Ur one, it is to lie Imped that lhe
people ttill respond nnd rise to tlie
occasion. The fair will encourage
the farmer Slid frultgrow-r to excel in
all manner ol field and garden produce
and to raise tlie standard of excellence
which will result in increased returns
to himself. It is proposed that the
fair lie ilividul up into several classes
including, poultry, live stock, dogs,
dairy produce, fruit, vegetables, field
produce, tlowcrs and general horticulture, h nu- linking, preserving antl
jams, art and fancy work, besides
classes lot children's li.ndiwork Mining and lumbering exhibits will lie in-
cluthd, while maiiufacturies and in
dustries will have a prominent place.
This latter will coalite the merchants
ol the city and district to advertise
their goods in an attractive and special
manner. In each of the above inen-
ti iiied classes, liberal pri/.eB will be
given, aud the more entriea there ire
the heiter the exhibits from au out-
aiders poiut of view. By this means
the pursuits as represented by these
different sections will be encouraged
and only the best aimed nt. To make
the fair a success everybody, no matter
what calling he may bave, is invited
to exhibit in any or all of these classes
and make tbe exhibition ns interesting
and embracing as possible.
It is to be hoped that it will pot be
ueces ary for tlie committees to spend
too much time this year in canvassing
for entries, as the weoks are abort
until the date o! the Fair, the second
week in September, but that ns soon
