A lire which broke out at midnight
on Wednesday and blazed fiercely until   after    daylight    on    Thursday.
swept out  of existuncc seven business '
houses on the main street of the city '
and  rendered  the      occupants  of  the i
upper BtorleS homeless.      Half of  the
I lock at the end of McKenzie avenue ,
extending from the Kevelstoke Oyster I
and  ("bop      House to the     Truenian '
studio,  is In ruins and with the    ex- |
ception of some small salvage iu the
(rout  part   of      A.   Hobson's      store,
practically  tbe entire contents of tbe
buildings  have  been destroyed.
The Stores consumed by the Ure are
the Trueman studio, Hoeninger Bros.
barber shop, A. Hobson's grocery and
bakery, the Great infest und
Pear-' River Land company, the London caie, Gr, 3. Adams jewelry store,
aud Reid <S Barton photographers. In
addition the building occupied by
the Revelstoke Oyster and Chop house
has suflei i damage and the contents Lave been injured by smoke and
water.   The loss is estimated at >.- .
000 ivith insurance of J 16,700.
1'lie fire, which was the most spectacular ever seen In the city, was
watched by hundreds ol people. For a
long time after the lire started it ap-
, peared aa :f the entire block us far as
the Molson's bank was doomed. It,
was only the heroic efforts of the fire
brigade c iupl?d with the splendid
water pressure that saved the buildings from the Kevelstoke Oyster und
Chop house to First street.
Six streams of water, any of which
could reach far above the tops of
the buildings were played on the
flames. W. A. Foote, chief of the
brigade took charge on McKensie avenue while Roy Macdonald directed
operations at the rear.
BRIGADE WINS  VICTORY.
The Revelstoke Oyster and Chop
house w i-i tbe scene of a fierce tight
with tb" '.'. lines but aided by a narrow
space between the buildings, which
enabled Pater to be played upon tne
side of tbe restaurant tbe building
was saved and the onward rush of the
tire was checked hy the brigade. One
nozzle was taken to the roof of the
chop house and the firemen, protected by wet blankets, fought the flames
from that  point  of  vantage  In spite
01 the intense beat and the volumes
of smoke. It was a remarkable demonstration of the efficiency of the
tire brigade and of the water pressure
After pouring water on the tlames
from six nozzles for three hours thc
pressure  seemed undiminished.
MIDNIGHT ALARM.
It was midnight when the tirst alarm was given and immedfately the
Dames burst forth in huge volume ^
from the London Cafe in the rear of
. ''ich th» .'ire evidently lagan. The
uptov fire brigade was speedily on
thc scei e coupled the hose and poured water from four lines of hose upon thc dames. The brigade from lower town soon afterwards arrived and
Chief Constable Parry brought the
hose reel from the lower station with
au automobile, when two more
streams of water were added to the
tloodB that were being directed upon
the blazing buildings. The flames
mounted scores of feet into the air,
and with the clouds of smoke and
(•bowers of sparks made a scene long
to be remembered by the hundreds ot
people who lined the opposite Bide -
walk and watched the brigade's fight
to conquer the conflagration.
At first thc efforts of the fire fighters were directed chiefly to saving the
Revelstoke Oyster and Chop house
nnd to prevent the Hpread of the
flames In that direction. This was
accomplished In spite ol the fact that
the neighboring building was completely destroyed. The brigade was
then able to concentrate its efforts
upon saving the lower end of the
block und for a time it appeared as
i,' thoy would be successful. The fire
w.-ih quenched ut the rear of tho bull- :
ding nnd In front it was almost mat
tered when from tbe centre, which
Could not be reached effectively, owing to the lack of space between the
buildings, a wave of flame burst
through the whole building to the
street paralleling the railway tracks.
Every effort was made to quench the
blaze but the many frame partitions
made tire fighting extremely difficult,
and it was not until the Trueman
studio nnd Hobson's bakery were iu
iiiins that the tire was stayed.
THRILLING   SCENE.
It was a thrilling scene, and fre -
quent explosions, caused probably
from chemicals used In photography,
from boilers and gasoline and cart -
ridges added to the danger encountered by the firemen, who worked undismayed by blazing timbers falling
around tbem. The wierdness of the
scene was added to when the Btreet
lights were cut off to avoid danger of
live wires.
The buildings were searched by tbe
police and the residents of the upper
stories made hurried exit from their
homes, In some cases in their night
clothe nnd wrapped in blankets. Only
one of them had insurance. Sobbing
children were brought hurriedly from
their beds nnd ready helpers brought
out what furniture they could and
piled it. on the street out of way of
the dames, Vi. Smythe tnrew open
the door* of the Star theatre and
here much of what had been saved
from the wrecked buildings was stored for the night.
NARROW ESCAPES.
Several narrow escapes took place,
but there was no serious injury or
loss of life. Lome McLeod, while
helping Mr. Barton to save some of
Ins stock was nearly trapped by the
(lames and he and Mr. Barton were
forced to escape through an upper
window and drop to the ground, Mr.
Barton being badly burned about tbe
head.
C.S. Adams, who lives on his ranch
outside the city limits, knew nothing
of thc fire until he came to his store
on Thursday morning and found it a
mass of embers. His safe which contained among other valuables 125 watches, could not be opened until yesterday. The contents suffered little
injury but everything else was destroyed
SAVED ORANGE.
Many queer instances of absence of
mind occurred during tbe excitement
of the fire. One ludy returned to her
rooms to secure her money. She saw
her thimble lying on the iloor put it
on her linger and took nothing else
from the room. A man took some in-
ronsiderable tritles from his room
end left hU gold watch behind. Another lady who went into a building
to save valuables, returned with an
orange, a piece of factory cotton and
a  kitten.
FURNITURE LOST.
Much valuable furniture in the upper rooms of thc burned buildings
was lost. A new piano belonging to
J. Muthieson whb consumed, Mr.
Macdonald lost a set of carpenter
tools that he had Btored in his sisters rooms.
For a time fears were felt for the
safety of the buildings on the side of
ihe street opposite to the fire. The
terriftic heat cracked some of the windows and the woodwork was scorched. Small hose was played over the
C.P.R. telegraph company's window,
and Mr. Smythe played water over
the roof of the Star theatre and
checked an incipient bluze there.
FOUND  GOLD   WATCH.
During the fire Constnble Ross picked up from the street a gold watch,
which was returned to its owner and
T. Bain found a pocket book con -
tulning money.
CAUSE OF FIRE.
The cause of the fire is attributed
to hot ashes at the hack of the London cafe. The Van Home block which
is  destroyed   waa  sold  a   month  ago

Long Chase Ended
Men is Captured
Senile little commendation is due to
the provincial police ol tha locality
for their efforts to suppress cuttle
killing, and Chief OonBtable Fernie
and Constable Dallln are entitled to
special praise for the successful conduct of a long stern chase which bas
resulted ln tbe apprehension ot a sus-
pri't at a point far distant from the
scone of the alleged offence, says the
Inland  Sentinel.
tt will he remembered thut quite recently Melville Rose was arrested op
la charge of killing cattle in the North
Thompson valley some 20 miles north
nl K imloops, and that, he received a
[sentence which he is now serving at
the Burnaby Prison Farm, The driest e,i a man named William Middle-
ton in connection wltn the same
charge was also desired, but this gen-
tl an eluded the police and a   lengthy
pursuit was entered upon. On leaving
Kamloops Middleton appears to have
bent his steps successively to Revelstoke,   Vancouver and     Huntingdon,
and at each of these places lie was
followed, and most careful Inquiry
was instigated, At Hontingdon however, the track was lost, aud for a
tune the chase senimed hopeless. Teu
days ago, chief Constable Fernie acquired information which decided him
in instruct Constable Dallln to proceed to Bellingham in Washington, D.
S.A, On reaching this city Constable
Dallln put himself in communication
with the  police there,  from  whom he
(received ever) assistance, and Middleton's trail was again picked up, it
was nothing more than the trail, however, for the man himself was 'found
to have gone to Seattle. The size of
this latter centre seemed likely to
present great  difficulty In the search,
I but it was ascertained that the quarry
had left for I'ort Orchard. Here Constable Dallln had the good fortune to
neel Mr. Shuratt, Sheriff of Kltsup
county, who accompanied him to
Charleston where Middleton was
found and apprehended.
After   the      arrest       the     Constable
Btarted for Kamloops witb Ins prison
(f, and reached here on Friday last.
The next day the accused was ar -
ei before the Magistrate Mr. El.
T. \v. Pearse, who ordered a remand
(or eight  days.

DEFORESTATION
CAUSES FLOODS
Millions of Dollars of Virgin
Forest Turned into Ashes
and Washed Away
"Science und general experience agree
in saying that when country Is covin*! hy toreBtB the water runs ofl It
more slowly and regularly than it
•does after the forest hus been removed. ThiB is tlue principally to the
fact that the forest steins and ground
cuver ofler u mechanical obstruction
to thc surface run-oft, while the deep
roots of the trees keep the soil loose,
4JM18 permitting tlie surface water to
percolate into the sub-soil.
Iu Western Canada, forest surveys
conducted by the Dominion forestry
lu-unch have furnished considerable
evidence of the evil results attending
forest destruction by repeated tires.
The forester in charge of a recent
Burvoy made of the Swan Hills In
northern Alberta states: "Of the 7,-
ruti • square miles examined only
about ■_':'. per cent huve been preserved from fire during the last hundred
jrcur.-i, and only "250 square miles
could be considered as bearing a mature growth. No one will ever know
liow many million dollars worth of
the national wealth in virgin forest
was turned into ashes, now being
washed away, with the hest of the
soil, by the rapid current of the Ath-
abusku river." This area has since
been included In the Lesser Slave for-
•est reserve, and, like other Dominion
reserves in the West, will be administered with the double object of providing timber for the settlers' needs
und of regulating the flow of the
great rivers of Central Canada so
that navigation may not be hindered
by the tilling-up of the river-bed with
■eroded soil and debris, and so that
an even Mow of water may be insurod
for power-developing plants.
In the older settled regions of Mas-
tern Canada the relation between
floods and Indiscriminate deforestation is even more clearly evident. W.
H. Brelthaupt, M. Inst. C.H., says :
"With deforestation stream-How1 in
tbe Ontario I'enisulu has greatly
changed Spring Hoods are very
much higher and there are floods on
heavy rains, while during the season
of minimum flow many streams which
were formerly considerable through -
out  the  year     practically disappear.
The discharge of the grand river at
a point above the outlet of the Speed
iB now only 30 to 100 feet per second
at low water and 10,0i)o to 20,000 feet
per second at Hood."
Similar deforested conditions likewise prevail on many of the water -
sheds in Quebec and the Maritime
provinces, aud, by causing extremes
of high and low water, have u detrimental influence on navigation and
tlie development of electric power. It
has frequently been urged thut the
Dominion government should assist
the provinces in the reforestation of
these ureas or in their protection
from forests tires.
The commission of conservation, in
a recent report on forest conditions
in the Trent river valley, urges that
on the 150',000 acres of practically
desert land on this water-shed, the
result of repeated Hres, a policy of
conservation be carried out under Dominion, provincial or municipal control, in order to regulate the water-
supply of the Trent Canal, on which
upwards of 810,000,000 has already
been expended by the Dominion government.
lu the United States the right of
the federal government to purchase
private or state lands whose condition efiects the navigability of navigable streams has been recognized by
the supreme court, nnd the Weeks'
bill in 1911 provided for the expenditure of 811,000,11110 for this purpose.
Since then upwards of Ave and a half
million acres In the Appalachian
mountains haw* heen purchased or
approved for purchase, and will,
where necessary, be artificially reforested in order to prevent the floods
which have played such havoc along
the rivers which have their sources in
these denuded  regions.
Another aviation fatality occurred
in the German army flying corps,
whin Lieut. Kolbe was killed by the
overturning of tlie aeroplane he was
piloting. Capt. Hull, bis passenger,
suffered a broken leg.

Brilliants that belonged to the late
Lily,'duchess of Malborough excited
the buyers of jewelry at Christie's.
The sum of S'2'2,500 was paid for a

fetched 814,000 and a cats-eye brooch
with  brilliants $-000.
King Peter I, of Servia has ubdic -

Lonwas made in favor of his second

The King's action was "taken because

The newest specimen of suflragette
tactics is revealed in the announcement by Mrs. Margaret Stockman of

Kamloops Wins Victory
In Wednesday's Came
Notwithstanding the score the
game between Kamloops and Revelstoke at the former place on Wednesday was an interesting one. Revelstoke hit Hewitt much harder than
the acore would indicate but owing
to feature plays by Kamloops they
were caught out Outside of the 3rd
and Ith innings Killeen was almost
invincible.
On July I Kevelstoke will play again at Kamloops and it is expected
that a great many fans will take advantage of the holiday to go and
root for the team.

DOMINION DAY
BIG PROGRAM
Girls    Basketball.    Football.
Baseball Matches, Lacrosse,
Music and Refreshment
A big program of sports is planned
for Dominion Day. Commencing at
9:30 a.m. the girls of Selkirk school
will play an exhibition game of basketball on the Selkirk school grounds
just a block from the recreation park.
At 10:30 the football boys will perform, and the following team indi -
cates that the local team should win
out:—Goal, J. Allen, backs, Sankey
and Hartley; halves, Robbins, Mar -
shall, Patterson; forwards, Provins,
Hay, Miller, March and, Oag; spares,
McFadyen aud Bell.
The boys have been practicing hard
for the past few weeks and with this
training they ought to be able to
make a good showing on Dominion
Day. On the other hand Vernon
comes with flying colors, being now
at the head of the Okanagan league.
Allan the goal keeper has distinguished himself already at his place.
Backs Sankey and Hartley are sure
and steady. The half backs have
played little in Revelstoke so far but
they have easily gained their places;
as for the forward line, they never allow the grass to grow under their
feet. Miller is a sure goal getter and
he is expected to keop up his reputation on July 1. Provins, Oag and
Marehand have in time past played
against the best teams in the interior
Hay on the other hand has played
little in British Columbia, but aB far
back as the summer of 1909 played
for the Edmonton Caledonians in the
Alberta championship.
One of the Vernon players figured a
few years ago in the "Clyde," a well
known Scottish team.
BASEBALL MATCH
The baseball game will start at 2:30
o'clock, tbe teams representing Malakwa and Revelstoke amateurs. The
team which did the job at Golden,
will again perform on the First, with
but two exceptions. The following is
the line up:
Pitcher, H. Burridge; catcher, J.
Trendler; 1st base, N. McLeod; 2nd
base, F. Daniels; 3rd base, Arnold
McCarter; centre field, H. Haug; left
field, H. Mulholland; right field, J.
Wilson; spare pitcher, W.J. Cassidy;
spares,  L.  Dupont and  T.  Copeland.
At 4:15  the lacrosse game between
two local teams,  will commence, under the     management of J. Gordon, '
principal  of Selkirk scbool.
In thc evening commencing at 6:30
a baseball game will be played on
the atheistic field between the school
hoys and the working boys.
The Ladies Auxiliary to the Y, is
making preparations to look after
the inner man, and the City band will
be in attendance during the afternoon.

Brampton Team Wants
to Play in Revelstoke
The Brampton lacrosse team, Mann
cup challengers, now at the coast,
will return home via Nelson and the
Arrow lakes. They hope to arrange
a game while in Revelstoke.
Last evening the citizens again en-
loyed a good amateur game of base-
I all on the Y diamond, when the
Businessmen clashed with the Fire
Hall. Manager McKae who is always
on the alert to strengthen his team
with new players will have to rustle,
as the league Is Hearing the close
with one game to his credit, but —
"where there in life there is hope."
The Fire Hall boys made a change in
their battery, placing Merel Calder
pitcher and J. Maley catcher, with
Burridge short stop. The new short
6top with a little more practice will
be able to stop the hot ones from
rolling out of nis hands. The umpire received a hot one which has
left its impression for the remainder
of the season. Score il to 3 in favor
of Fire Hall.
Monday evening next the Business-
Pitcher Quits Came
Goes Into Business
"Happy" Eddy in the game on
Thursday made a home run and won
bis game by a big margin. He left
for Seattle this morning where he
will act as motorcycle demonstrator
for a large sporting goods house. He
has been a tower of strength to the
team and closed his Beason In Revel-
si okc in a halo of glory.

According to a recent report of the
forestry department of New • South

state prison, instead of breaking
stone, arc now engaged in the more
useful ind healthful work of replanting with trees the waste lands of the
state. '\t one prison alone 25,1)00

were planted ill l!U3, and so succesg-
ful   have   these   plantations   been   that
