Two fires last, night gave a strenu-1

two homes.      The      house  owned  by
John Heck on Third  street     and     a
three room house'opposite the Oriental  hotel     occupied     by  J. Paulson
were the buildings to suffer.
The tirst fire which broke out about
« quarter to nine occurred in Mr.
Beck's home on Third street, a two
■atory frame building. Mr. Beck, who
is a railway conductor was out of
town at the time aud Mrs. Beck was
visiting her daughter Mrs. McMillan.
• After the arrival of the fire brigade
excellent work was done and the
fire was checked before the house was
destroyed although the interior of
the house and the contents are practically ruined. The loss is estimated
nt $0,0(Mi.
Mr. nnd  Mrs.  McMillan had visited

Owing probably to lightning last
night the indicator at No. 1 fire hall
was out of order when the fire broke
out and caused some unavoidable delay in the brigade reaching the
scene. The alarm was turned in from

lire hall displayed the wrong number
and tha bell gave an incorrect signal.
Thc second fire broke out about
2.3d in thc one starey, three roo'tn
house opposite the Oriental hotel occupied by J. Paulson. Mr. nnd Mrs.
Paulson and their little child had a

Market Site By=law to
Be Submitted to People
At a special meeting last night the
city council determined to proceed
with ths market site bylaw which alter being passed by the council will
be submitted to the people for ratification.
Aid. McSorley said that with Aid.
Bourne he had inspected the old
laundry site but it did not look very
good to tnem.
The mayor remarked that this site
included some good machinery and
was of considerable size. Aid. Bell
thought that it was too much out of
the way.
Aid Smythe said that he had reconsidered his position regarding the
market site. He had talked to several people and they said that a market was needed. He had been opposed
to the purchase of a market site on
account of hard times, but the owners of' the site selected by the committee had offered to accept city
hands in payment and he would move
that the question of the purchase of
the market site be put before the
people. One of his reasons for favoring the bylaw was the present exorbitant price of fruit and vegetables.
At Grand Forks the market had been
a hilliant success. If he were on the
council next year he would bring up
the advisahility of erecting a market
Mayor McKinnon said that the
merchants wanted a market, so that
they mieht avoid selling produce.
Aid. McSorley seconded Aid. Smy-
tbe's motion. He said that the    peo
ple of Ttevelstoke would be glad to
be able to buy from ranchers the
orchard run of apples instead of the
fancy apples packed for foreign markets. Meat would also be cheaper at
a fanners market and a market,
would stimulate thc production of
agricultural  produce.
On the motion being put it was
carried unanimously, Aids. Bourne,
Smythe, Pradolini, Bell and McSorley voting aye. Aid. Needham was
absent having been called away to
fight the fire on Third street.
The market site selected is between
Second and Third streets facing ,.n
Campbell avenue.
Aids. Pradolini, Needham, McSorley, Bourne and Mayor McKinnon
were appointed a court of revision of
the sidewalk assessment.
A letter from the school board regarding the water supply at the high
school was referred to thc plumbing
A letter was received asking for
a contribution to the Tranquille
Sahitorium. The council agreed that
it was a worthy institution but decided that there vecre no funds available. Aid. Bell suggested that a concert might he arranged to raise
H.H.B. Atjbott reported that he
had placed surveyors monuments on
the paved streets.
An application for water from R.
Tapping was referred to the fire,
water and light committee.
The plans of the subdivision of the
Bowman mill  site were approved.

Loss to Forest Mills Two Hundred Thousand Dollars-
Covered by Insurance—Plant Will Be Rebuilt—Fourteen Million Feet of Lumber Escapes Destruction-
Fire Breaks out at Three Points Simultaneously
Patriotic Fund Meeting

Pire which broke out at 11.30 on
Thursday night completely destroyed
the sawmill and planing mill of the
Forest Mills of Uritish Columbia,
Limited at Comaplix and also the
Lardeau hotel owned by Russel
Evans. The loss to the Forest Mills
is estimated at, S'JOO.OOO, insured in
the; Luniberinens' Indemnity Exchange.
The fire was apparently of incendiary origin as it broke out In the
sawmill, lumber yard and hotel almost simultaneously. The lumber
yard was stocked w'.th 14,000,000 feet
of lumber worth 8200,000 and this
was saved through the admirable
water pressure and lire lighting
equipment of thc Forest Mills, aided
by the fact that rain was falling
when  the  outbreak  accurred.
W. A. Anstie, general manager of
the Forest Mills, was in Revelstoke
at the time of the fire and accom-
paned by G. S. Carter, who was anxious as to the fate of the steamer
Revelstoke which was moored at the
Comaplix: wharf, left by special train
yesterday afternoon for the scene of
the fire, returning last evening. They
found the fire still burning but under
control and the lumber in little danger. The Revelstoke had nlso escaped injury.
"The mills will be rebuilt as soon
as possible"      said Mr. Anstie     last
night, "The company has 20,001 ,0 0
feet of logs in the water ready for
cutting. The mills w^re the best owned by the company and although well
insured they will cost more than the

Watchman had begun supper. His

house to find the mill in dames. Help
speedily arrived and the fire in the

doomed. Almost at V.ir. same time

The Great Comedv Success in Three A.CU   Opkra  H
Adventurous German Deported
—Made Long Journey in
Home-made Craft
Tired but not a whit discouraged,
Julius Emil Welmer, a German,
rcuched Midge creek on Kootoay
lake on Saturdny after a journay of
two months down the Kootenay river
by row boat from near Kalispell,
Mont. Here he was encountered by
Capt. West of Nelson and his tug by
which he was taken in tow and
brought to the city.
In Nelson he was taken in hand by
Chief of Police W. J. Devitt and
hasided over for deportation to A. C.
O'Neill Dominion immigration officii-,
amid a volume of protests during
which he expressed a certain amount
of disrespect for a country that made
laws preventing a man coming in or
going out as he pleased.
Welmer's intended destination was
Revelstoke which, he thought from a
map he might reach by water. At
Revelstoke he had 'intended to seek
work as a carpenter, he said, but
judging from the outfit which made
up his cargo he could have represented himself as a jack of all trades. A
tool case filled with all manner of
tools in excellent condition, a trunk
loaded to its capacity with articles
of clothing, tents, blankets i and a
great many articles that made his
craft take an nir of a frontiersman
of old confronted Chief Devitt upon
locating the man near the mouth of
Cottonwood creek preparing to continue his journey by water to Revelstoke.
He had much faith in his craft
which was a flat bottomed punt,
home made, with a " ft. beam, 10} ft
in length and pitched seams for it
took considerable persuasion to lend
him to believe that it would be impossible for him to get beyond Granite
bridge in it. He had prepared to
leave Nelson and was about to commence n journey that would have
probably  meant sure death.
Welmer gave his age ns 65, having
been born, he said, in Snxony in
1R-19 nnd he was in excellent health
and spirits despite his long
row from Kalispell. It had rained for
practically the entire two months
that hi' had been travelling, he snid,
and this was his only complaint.
Welmer, though a German was   not
conversant with war topics and   had
up to  date  apparently   been  unaware
of any trouble that was ex'istant between his native country and (Britain.
The  "German cruiser," which is the
term generally applied by those   who
have seen  it to     the craft of  Julius
Welmer, was purchased by J.O.
for  $2.

A party was given in the high
school, on Friday even'ing, for- the
purpose of initiating the freshmen.
As each freshman reached the front
door of the high school he was ushered to the rear door hy a ghost
where he was met by two other
ghosts, and made to pass through
several dark rooms in which were
other spirits flitting round and weird
fires burning. As he reached the last
door he wa9 told by a ghost to open
the door. Just before the party began, some of the high school boys,
charged the door knob with electricity, and as soon as the freshman
took hold of it, he received a slight
shock. When the initiation was over,
all the members of the high school
assembled in one of the large unused
class-rooms which had been previously decorated by the seniors with
corn stalks, mountain ash berries,
pumpkin grinners, black cats and
witches. A number of gnmes were
played and afterwards the lights
were turned off, and everyone gathered around a large alcohol and salt
fire which was burning brightly in
the centre of the room, and listened
to a ghost story told by the principal
J. M. Patterson. Mr. Patterson
proved himself a story teller of exceptional ability, nnd just as he had
his audience worked up to a high
pitch of excitement, a pistol shot
wns fired and everyone screamed, never a doubt in each mind but that it
wns he who was shot. A bounteous
supper was served at eleven o'clock.
Several choruses were sung and after
the usual high school yells, the party broke i up at midnight.

work, held by the auxiliary in the
Forest Mills,   on    October    21,     the

J80 in the treasury—a fact most
! gratifying to the ladies. It was mov-
|ed that votes of thanks be sent to
I those who had aided in making the
affair the success it was. Considerable correspondence was read by tbe
secretary, Mrs. Dickson, and discussed
at length. It was decided to invest in
; S'-.me literature for use in the auxiliary and plans were discussed for the

of tea. The next meeting on November 26, will be held at the home of

Naval Battle in Progress
(Continued  from  Page One.)
there is no mention by urn ol the
chancellories ol a resumption of the
sanguinary encounters of the early
week. The British war office says
that the British are steadily gaining
ground on the western wing, but the
Qerman resistance is stubborn.
Of the operations along the line in
northern France the French report
a recrudescence of thc activity near
Rheims along the heights ot thc
Mouse and to the south of Fresnes in
WoQvere. Germany made claim to
successful attacks i;i the region of
Nieuport and Ypress and to the occupation of allied territory in the
Argonne forest. Of thc situation in
the east Berlin offered no report.
Petrograd on the other hand claimed
continued successes on the east Prussian front  beyond the Vistula.
A news agency despatch gives a report from Constantinople that a
naval battle between the Turks and
the Russians is in progress off Odessa
Another despatch from the same
source reported manifestations at
Damascus in favor of a war against
the Christian and said tbe Bedouins
were being massed along the Egyptian frontier. Turkish cavalry divisions are reported to be in the neighborhood of the gulf of Akabah in
the Red Sea.
A despatch from correspondent of
Reuters Telegram Co., at Paris says:
"The news today is excellent and I
am able to state on the best authority that the efforts of the allies are
heing crowned with success. In consequence of the opening of the sluices
of the Ysir canal thousands of thc
Germans were caught. Those who
escaped drowning were harassed by
the allied artillery. Some points of
extra strategic importance have been
occupied by the left wing of the
allies while along practically the
whole rest of the front as far as the
French eastern frontier the allies'
progress continues. The German losses are terrific."
The report that fiermany has made
peace proposals to France offering
special concessions was repudiated
today hy the German Consul General
nt Amsterdam as completely unfounded, says a despatch from
Amsterdam correspondent of
Reuters Telegram Co.
It is officially announced that

Granby Dividends Depend on
War   Situation — Annual
Meeting of Company
President W. H. Nichols of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelt-
inb & Power company went on record at the annual stockholders'
meeting in New York with the prediction that the Hidden Creek property would develop into the lowest
cost copper producer in the   world.
About a dozen stockholders attended the session, which voted to
reduce the number ot directors Irom
11 to 13, thereby eliminating the
vacancy caused by the death ol
(Jeorge M. Luther, [ormer president..
Other directors were re-elected.
Asked ahout dividend prospects,
President Nichols said the matter
was dependent upon the war situation and that if war continued for
any length of time very few copper
mining companies would be able to
continue on dividend basis.
"There is less copper iu the world
now than for some years," he saitl.
"But there is less being used. When
the war clouds roll over I believe
there will be a heavy demand for
the metal, and for a while at least
there will not be enough to go
around." The stockholders voted approval of issue of S960,OOO Series A
conv?rtible (i per cent bonds, made to
take care of an equal amount of unsecured loans which fell due last
year. Half of thc bonds were taken
hy the American Metal company and
the remainder by individuals interested in the company's development.

If you ask us who we are
Coming here  from, lands afar,
Hands cut off, you've read report
To give the German soldiers sport.
Now the suffering, now the pain—
"Nurse,  will our hands grow out
Happy children, full of song,
Full of love, and knew no wrong.
In  our Belgian  climate fair,
At close of day our evening prayer.
Now the suffering, now the pain—
"Nurse, will our  hands  grow  out
Romping through the valleys mild
Care  free as a  little child;

Killed our parents,  chopped our
Now the suffering, now the pain—

Please,  beat  hack  the German,  Prussian-
Free once more our Belginn sod,
And back we'll go to home and God.
Now the sorrow,  now the pain—

No, dear children, never more
Will your hands be as before,
But other hands will do the work,
And never falter,  never shirk.
And by  those stubs you raise on high
"We swear to conquer or to die!"
—Geo. H. Lawrence.
In a letter to his brother in Montreal from France, Corp. Stanley
Cooke of the Loyal North Lancashire
regiment, says: "I have seen some
bad sights in my life but nothing to
equal this. We brought 10 of our fellows over to England with both
hands cut off at the wrists; not shot
off but cut ofl."
Earl Grey, former Governor-General of Canada, in an address on
October S, in London, before the proposed Institute of Industry and Commerce, commented on the half million Canadians of German descent.
"These Germans," he said, "love the
conditions which they find in Canada
as much as they hate thc conditions
which they leave behind, and if we
can obtain a larger Influx of such
Germans into our dominions, we
shall have a combination of German
culture under free institutions founded  not upon might,  but upon right."

If you use our treatment, we will
either atop your hair Irom falling or

Dandruff is a Mntaginus disease
caused hy a microbe, which if not

microbe often comes from a comb

to remove the daoilrulf, destroy the
germ, make the scalp healthy and
stop falling tirtir. and, if there is any
life le'ft in tha riota, ahio promote
egjowt.h of new hair.
We believe that prolmhly C,r, per

Military Tactics
The wise military commander cbang.es his plan ol campaign to
fit conditions as the progress ol events dictates. The wise
business commander does the Mine.
Firms that have never before seen the tremendous power ol
well directed, skilfully-prepared advertising based on a plan
that ls fundamentally right, will make use of this modem merchandising force now;, old advertisers. Wise and eiperienced,
will expand along new lines—by means of advertising.
Canada is face to face today with enormous opportunities,
new markets are opening, new opportunities are unrolling bees-
fore established business. What is required is quick re-ndjuBt-
tment, a change of the plan of campaign to fit the new conditions.
Newspaper advertising will be the right-hand assistant of tho-se
who forge ahead in this crisis, not ordinary advertising however; the efficiency will have to be high, the plan and copy carefully laid out and skilfully   prepared.
No expense nor obligation attaches to a friendly discussion ot
the new opportunities elthei in person or by mall. The fate of
YOOR business may rest on your decision to act on this suggestion.
