MRS.   A.   Ci.  CRICK
First   Streot               Opposite   Windsor   Hotel
WAS UNKNOWN SUICIDE
Tl
A Possibility That He Was, But
Probabilities Against—John
J. Nelson Disappeared from
Macleod Early in July
There ia a possible solution ol the
mystery surrounding the unknown
man who committed suicide bere in 11
local hotel on July 7th, in the following extract, which appeared iu the
Winnipeg Telegram of August 7th,
uuder the heading: "Winnipeg police
look lor Toronto man through west."
Tho article reads :—
"A puzzling case ol mysterious disappearance iu interesting the Winnipeg police as well as tbe provincial
authorities all over the west. John J.
Nelson, of 73 Euclid avenue, Toronto,
ia the man involved and he is well
known in Winnipeg as he travelled
over thiaeeetion several yeara representing the Methodist Book concern.
He resigned his connection with the
publishing company in January and
came west to take up a homestead.
He was accompanied by \V. J. Reid,
of Orangeville, who resides near
Macleod, Alta.
Nelson remained with the Reid's
until July 10.
That morning he bade them goodbye at Macleod stating that he had
had a bad dream the night before and
announcing that be would return to
his home. Mrs. Reid, according to
letters she has Bince written, then
asked him to till a prescription for In r
at the T. Eaton Co store in Winuii eg.
Later on Mra. Reid received the raedi-
cide showing that Nelson was at the
point on schedule time. A black
valise containing all victim's toilet
articles waa received by his family in
Toronto, July 14. It waa checked
from Winnipeg via the C. P. R. on a
ticket good from Winnipeg to Toronto.
That is the last tangible evidence the
police of Winnipeg have been able to
secure of the missing man. He was
writing his wife regularly up to July
4th from Macleod.
As time passed and no bit of knowledge came to the family tending to
dissipate the mystery, the fear that
some harm had come to the
traveller, forced itself upon the family,
lt chanced that one of the Nelsons
picked up a newspaper which contained the record ol a man who under
tbe assumed name of McGinty, bad
banged hiin-eif in a hotel iu one of
the western towns or cities The item
did not state where. On tbe possible
chance that this might have some
connection with the disappearance of
Nelson, telegrams were sent out to
various western places asking the
police to describe the appearance ot
the suicide, but the location of the
tragedy was not discovered."
Another thought, tbat after purchasing his ticket (or Toronto, that
Mr. Nelson may have become ill or
disabled in Winnipeg, has depressed
the wile and family, and Mrs. Nelson
has communicated witb friends here,
and with tbe chief ol police. Application was made there alsu a week
ago or more to the Toronto police,
with the result, the family says, that
the Toronto force said the matter was
not one that could concern them,
advising recourse to the Deputy Attorney-General's department.
Kecollectiug that in the person of
William McLellan at Winnipeg was a
man whu was eome time ago Nelson's
foreman in tlie Methodist Bo k Room,
Mrs. Nelson wrote there thiuking her
husband might bave stayed uver to
call on his old friend. But Mr. McLellan replied that he had seen nothing of him. He untitled tbe Winnipeg
police and a search of the hospitals
disclosed no trace of the Toronto man.
The Nelson family then had recourse
in the effort to pierce tbe mystery, to
the C.P.K. which carried the ba_(.
They were told that the valise had
been checked on a ticket good Ior
passage from Winnipeg to Toronto,
and that the consigner had paid at
the time Ior cairiage to Toronto and
lor the delivery ol the article to the
F.uclid avenue house, this city.
A search ol the contents of the
black valine showed that the key was
placed in the pocket ol the smock. In
the bag was a letter liearing tbe
Kuclid avenue addreaa. The lock was
broken otl and several ol the articles
protruded.
The Toronto polios, the Winnipeg
force and lastly lhe provincial detectives had I"' 11 appealed lo iii tlie effort
to solve the pttSflt as to why this
black valine should reach Toronto and I
by the Canadian Bnggnge Transfer Co
while the owner seems to have van-
isheil at eome point on the 2,000 mile
stretch between Macleod, Alberta and
Toronto, hie home town.
There is the possibility, and to this
the family and friends are striving to
pin tlieir hope that Nelson  may   have
forwarded the valise to ite destination,
and have struck out   Irom   Winnipeg
iu a new direction to take up land.and
may now be safe and sound away Irom
communication   facilities.    But   that
the husband and father  knowing  the
valise containing the ell'ects  he  took
away  from  home in   the   lirst  p'ace
would arrive  there to   herald   his   return and would maintain blank silence
as tbe days and weeks roll on without
his following his effects, eeems  almost
unbelievable to she lamily and friends.
The last letter written by   Mr.  Nel-
eon to hia wife and family  was dated
July 4th.    In  thia he eaid nothing of
a change.    From  that  time   to  this
there is no trace.     To add to the suspense Mrs. Neleon's family ascertained
that the valise had been checked (rom
Macleod to  Winnipeg and there re-
checked   to Torouto on a  passenger
ticket   over   the   C.P.R. to  Toronto,
which disposes of the idea that,  planning a long jump to another section,
Mr   NelBou sent bis effects  on  home
ahead.     When the valise arrived here
it contained a Btiit of light clothes, a
8 nock, shoes, box, collars and Nelson's
r.1/,01 laid in  the  bottom—-such  arti
cles as a man carries  with  him when
he 1 ravels."
In face of all this it does not seem
probable tbat the man who committed
suciilu here on July 7th under the
name of McGinty was Nelson. If
Nels .11 lnid tone to Winnipeg and
there checked his valise he would not
bave lind time to get back here even
admitting that lie left Macleod on
July 4th instead ol the 10th. Moreover, the man who committed suicide
had a hat bearing the name of I >.
Spencer Co., Vancouver, and it does
not seem tbat Nelson went so far
weat. The local police have done
what they could in the matter. They
have written a description of the
man to Winnipeg and have alio aent
his photograph; but it is quite evident
that only a combination of circum
stances such as mistaken ditea or
movements could render it possible
that the unknown suicide wae J. J
Nelson.

Explosion of a Moving Picture Machine—
The Flames Spread Rapidly
Toronto, Aug. 11,—Hanlan's amusement park nnd the Eastern League
baseball grounds were swept by lire
late yesterday afternoon. The Hie
started through an explosion in lhe
Gem theatre moving picture concern
about 3:4r> p.m. and there is not a
building left standing on the entire
grounds. So rapidly did the Are
spread that live minutes after the outburst the whole park was 11 roaring
mass of flames, Miss A. English, the
cashier in the theatre was surrounded
by the Haines and was so terribly
burned that she died shortly after
being rescued. At 'MB the Haines
reached Hanlan's hotel, a five storey

ELEVEN PERISHED
IN FIRE AT VERNON
Okanagan Hotel Burned to the
Ground Yesterday Morning
With ratal Results - Eleven
Men Burned to Death
Vernon, Aug. 10.—(Special   to  the
Mail Herald).—Eleven men are dead
and Bix others in  the hospital as the
result of  a lire   which destroyed  tlie
Okanagan hotel at an early hour this
morning.   The lire was lirst observed
about 2 a.m., and within a  few minutes   afterwards  the   whole   building
was wrapped   in  a   sheet of   llames.
Everyone was asleep in   the  hotel at
the time,  and sixty inmates rushing
out  in   their   night   clothes  escaped
with   great dilliculty.    A.   Hickling,
one of the lirst men aroused, proved
himself a  hero.   After rescuing several children be rushed into the llamea
again to save a little girl.  She escaped
through the wiudow a moment  later,
but Hickling never came out again.
Tbe Okanagan hotel was a hrick-
veuecred buiiding and was owned by
Messrs. Sigalet and Albers. The loss
isestimatd at $25,000 with .$12,000
insurance. An inquest will be held
to-morrow (Wednesday).
A list of the dead and injured is
given as follows:—
Dead—Wilbur Smith, carpenter; J.
Funatoii, laborer; J. Anderson, baker;
Julius Fuerat, bartender; Mr. Char-
abel, laborer; George Settgaat, painter;
A. Hickling, laborer; Wm. Clarke,
miner; George McKay, bricklayer;
George Gannett, bricklayer; and one
unidentilied man.
In the hospital suffering Irom injuries, none of which will probably
prove lata!: W. Sturgatt, XV. Hall,
H. FcatherB, E. XV. Nicholls, Seale,
Hanner.
One Revelstoke man who was in the
Are was W. E. Wilber, a timber
cruiser, who makes his headquarters
at the City Hotel here. Mr. Wilber
returned last night ind gave an inter-
esting account of his own experience,
He said:
"The lirst thing I heard was the
hell tolling outside. I lay quiet and
did not tnke much notice of it al first,
but in another minute I heard someone holloaing outside and I thought
fiom the noise that perhaps some
Chinamen wen- lighting. I smelt nothing of tbe lire in my loom, which was
up on the second storey, but I thought
I would dress and no outside to see
what tho excitement was. 1 turned
on the light and looked at my wttch.
It wns then Hve minutes to two. No
sooner did I open the room thnn I fell
back for a moment blinded with the
smoke nnd beat that rushed iu. I
caught myself together nnd ran along
the passage Io the top of the stairs,
By this time people seemed to be running in nil directions and some were
shouting and screaming. I gol to the
landiiiK half-way down the stairs and
jumped the rest of the distance. In
the passage aliout a yard Irum the
door I saw a woman lying on her face
as If unconscious. I pulled her out in
the street and she proved to he the
wife of one of the proprietors,"
Mr. Wilber snid thnt by this lime a
crowd of people bad gathorcd and the
firemen were on hand. They did their
best, but their pressure was insufficient to do much as Uio place was just
one big blaze. Fortunately there wns
jusi sufficient wind Lo carry away the
smoke and nothing more so lhat the
lire did noi spre.id, though the heat
wns so ureal that it scorched the
fronts of other buildings'across the
street, and cracked tbe plate glasa
windows. 11 burned up everything
oonneoted with the Okanagan  hotel,
slobles and all, and il wns said thai
two horses perished,
lu addition to the eleven men whose
names have been already given Mr,
Wilber sunt ihnl ii was believed there
was a twelfth man for whom they
were hunting yesterday, Mr. Wilber
Hays be believes that this twelfth man
was a young Scotchman whom be had
formerly mel al ihe City hotel iu Rev.
elsloko." lie had been speaking to bim
ihe, nigbl beforo the lire and the
Btranger remarked that tbey bad seen
each other before at the City hotel.
Mr. Wilber saw nothing of him next
day and has coiiie 1.0 tho conclusion
tbat he musl have been among tho
Victims, lie describes him as a man
of about 21 or 2fi, of medium size,
broad ahouldered ami wearing a light
iimsUicho, Mr. Caley, proprietor of
tin-('ity hotel, waa unable to remember him as he was probably a translont
Kliest.
It was fortunate that all the women
and children weie saved, lhe youngoat
person to perish being a youth of 18 nr
20, a son of one of the proprietors.
Mr.   Wilber s.iys   il.   uns   11   dreary
Bight iii Vernon the day after the lire.
Hodins charred  and   unrecognizable
were dun out of the Bllioklug ashes,
and the sninll of burnt Heeh in the air
was   oppressive   and   elokenlng,      No
cause for the lire is known. IC might
have been oauaod by 11 burning claar
Ninl, thrown mi thu lloor nnd Igniting
some papers or any sueh triflingcauao,
I'he mistake seems In have been in not
having a night watchmen on guard.

SYSTEMATIC ADVERTISING
There was wisdom horn of ripe
experience in the advice given by
Mr. Robson, advertising agent of
the C.P.R., to the Board of Trade
last Friday evening. "The trouble
with a great deal of publicity work
in towns like this.'' he said, "is
that it is apt to be too spasmodic.
Jt ir steady, continued and systematized effort that tells. Our company has been at this work for 25
years and it is only of late years
that we have begun to reap the
fruits of it.'' What Mr. Robson
said of advertising place is applicable to all kinds of advertising. It
is the steady and continued effort
that tells in the long run. If during every tourist season at least
the advantages of Revelstoke were
kepi carefully and sedulously before the public, we should have a
much larger .-hare of the tuurist
trallic than we have at present
and everyone would benefit,
The establishment of a publicity
|
building at the C.P.R. depot would

standing reproach to tin- citizens of
Revelstoke lor their inactivity.
While Kevelstoke has much to
offer ii. lhe wa) f bi enery we believe Unit th-' strongest card to
piny ir tin- exploitation of it.- hunting and fishing, Mountain scenery abounds in a greater or lesser
degree in ever) portion nf Uritish
Columbia, unl it does not tnke tlm
average human being long tu get
nil he want- ..f it but hunting appeals to th'- primitive instincts of
man. and there nre plenty who
would spend four -Iny- chasing a
hear im whom ii four-minute look
at Mount Begbie would uuflice.
Then.' is many an angler who
would Bit patiently for an hour on
a rock with the s:un blistering hi.-
nose while he waits for a lish to
bite, whom the murmur of tin-
same stream would not charm for
a minute. Hunting and fishing
therefore   1ms   the   advantage   of
greater permanence than sight see-]
ing—it would hold the tourist
longer among us. What is wanted
then is some systematic manner of
directing travellers to the hunting
grounds, and the streams and lakes
where fish abound. ll would perhaps pay the town to have a man
to do this until the trails become
known, and the hunter of one year
would return with his friends the
next antl be Iheir self-constituted
guide.
Next to hunting   we might place,
mountain climbing   among the attractions of the district.    To those
who prefer  the easier   ascent there
is   Mount Revelstoke with its trail
already marked; and for the ardent
mountaineer  there arc such towering heights   as   Mount, lieghie and
Mount   Mackenzie.      From a materialistic standpoint mountaineering would be  a great advantage to
the   city,   because   the   mountain
climbers   would   need lo purchase
supplies for three or four days or a
week's   time.      Guides would also
probably    I"'   needed.      A famous
mountaineer one described Uritish
Columbia as   "a thou anil Switzer-
lands   rolled   into  one," and with
the rapid growth of   population on
the American  continent it is unite
conceivable that   the people in the
cities on the  plains  and to the far
east will Ily more and more to the
mountains as   their Bummer playground.     Revelstoke   should prepare itself to take advantage of this
tendency, and   strive   to become a
western   Clnmounix   with Mount
Begbie as its Mount Blanc.    While
the proposal to build   a scenic railway up   Mount   Revelstoke would
do away   with   that   height as an
exercise   ground   for   thu    sturdy
mountaineer, it  would add greatly
to   its   charms   for   twenty other
people, and   convert   the  park on
the   summit into   a  white city of
campers every summer.    A worthy
beginning   has   been   made by the
local   mountaineering   club in the
erection of a chr.let, and it is hoped
that the good work will be followed
uin      When    Mr.    Robson returns
citizens should   certainly  see to it,
tbat he is  shown   Victoria park in
the   pleasantest  possible   manner,
because no man can be  in a better
position to spread its fame abroad.
Get a crowd walking up every summer, and the scenic   railway would!
soon   follow   ar  a business enter*

TARRING STREETS
The Maii.-I1eiiai.ii has received
from 0. Hrskine Shaw, formerly
city clerk of Revelstoke, but now
of the Westminster city hall, London, Kng., a brochure on the subj
ject of spraying streets with tar to
prevent dust. In the letter accompanying it Mr. Shaw says: "In
my time the main road between the
upper and lower town was very
dusty in Summer and muddy in
the Autumn, a condition of affairs
which we tried to remedy by
draining. Perhaps the corporation
of Revelstoke would treat a sliurt
length of the main road with tar
as an experiment."
Residents uf - Revelstoke who
have been annoyed by lhe clouds
of dust that have swept along the
streets on windy days this Summer
would be willing to welcome any
measure that would bring relief.
. he system of watering the streets
in the business section with a hose
in the morning, can at the best
be little more than a partial remedy.
Like a shower that makes the
street muddy at lirst, it dries in a
few hours in the hot sun. On the
other hand the topography of lhe
town with its two divisions and its
long main road between, would
make sprinkling with a cart very
expensive and very dillicult. As
an alternative remedy spraying
with tar might at least be tried as
an experiment on a short length of
street, and if found successful it
could be extended.
The brochure that Mr. Shaw
sends contains reports sent to the
metropolitan paving committee
from most of the boroughs of London. The chairman of the committee tinds that the engineers who

greatly minimized. The application
of the tar by hand as against
machine spraying is mostly favored. The cost varies from one
cent to three cents per superficial
yard according to method of treatment.
The Borough Surveyor, of Croydon, who goes into the subject
very thoroughly, my.- thai, after
some experience with a tar spraying machine he finds the best and
most, lasting results are obtained
by hand labor, with a horse-drawn
vehicle to convey the tar, and men
with squeegees with which the
boiling tar is rubbed into the surface thoroughly. The surface is
afterwards coated with very coarse
ehippings, and in busy thoroughfares tbis is quickly faced up by
the passing trallic, though in residential streets a light petrol driven
roller is used for the purpose.
While it is rather late in the
present season to do much with
the streets in Revelstoke, the City
Council might well inquire into
this method of street trestment
with a view to utilizing it in an
experimental way at least next
year. To auyone landing here
after being used to the paved streets
of a metropolitan city, the contrast

While the aockeye came rather late
there was a heavy run into British
Columbia waters at the end ol last
month. It was estimated that three
miles of lish passed into the straits
from the open sea in oue day. It was
reported that 10,000 sockeyes were
taken from the traps of J. H. Todd A
Sons in tbe first day's catch. While
the traps have caught heavily, Fraser
river fishermen claim that they have
not done as well as they should have
done in the big run, and they blame it
on the fish traps for depleting the supply which should have gone up the
river. The catch of spring salmon has
been heavy, one tug taking in ten
t.ms to the curing plants, and others
nine and eight.

the daughter of Edward Fuller the

THE ARROW LAKES
P. I, O'farrell's Brilliant Description of
Their Beaut)
P. A. O'Farell, who viaited Revelstoke recently, came up by way ol the
Arrow lakes, and his description ol the
lakus and the country around thorn ia
intensely interesting.    He aayB:—
Twenty years ago, when I first sailed
over the lonely waters ol tho Arrow
Lakes, there was uut a house or a hut
or a log cabin on either shore lor its
whole 150 miles. Nut a hut or a
hunter along ita 300 miles ol abore
line; all was strange, weird, wild
lascinating beauty. Wo did pan* ono
canoe in which we recogni/.od Homo
Kooteuay. Indians because ol the
uncanny and  most  melancholy chant
thnt fell upon our enrs. A Corsican
priest lived among them and taught
them Ihis chant, and this was tlieir
weird interpretation of it. But save
theee few wandering savages the Arrow
lakes were as lonely twenty years ago
as in the dawn of the world's existence.
Some of the old voya eura had seen
them, and Borne intrepid hunters had
climbed tbe passes of the mountains
above tbe lakes and bad looked down
in wonder, akin to that which filled
the soul of Pizarro at the first sight of
the Pacific, when all his men looked
at each other with "a wild surmise,
silent upon a peak in Darien."
And I have seen the wilderness
transformed into fields of golden grain
and orchards, and llowers, and gardens, antl lawns, where happy children
played and sung, and have seen men
and women gruw young aod happy
being sharers in the creation ot a new
world ol altars and ol happy homes.
Only yesterday I Bailed over these
wonderful lakes again, hut this time
it was nut in a skiff, as twenty years
ago. Already along the shores on
either side the pioneer has done his
work, and tbe meadow and the orchard aud the garden have displaced the
wood. The pear tree, the cherry, the
apple and the peach tree have supplanted tbo pine, the fir, the timaiack
and the cedar. Girt on every side by
mighty mountains, neither the typhoons that lash the Pacific to fury
nor the toruadooB that scourge the
plaine can touch these shores. Storms
and tempesla are utterly unknown,
aud as equally unknown are the extremes ot heat and cold. Picture
Killarney on a vast and far more
beautiful scale, free from tempests,
mists and rain, and you begin to
realize the Arrow Lakes, with their
beauty, grandeur and attractiveness.
You are right iu directing tbe attention of your readers to British
Columbia. The picturesque heauty of
its lakes and rivers, and the sublime
grandeur of its mountain scenery lind
no parallel upou tbis globe of ours.
Its climate aud Boil are all that is
desirable for meu or women who love
open air life and bracing mountain
air, and an occasional bunt for cariboo
and elk. The apples grown on theBe
shores are the finest I bave ever
tasted, liner even than those 1 bave
sampled from Lord Aberdeen's wonderful orchards about 50 miles further
weBt. There is something in the sun,
in the soil, in the serene atmosphere,
iu the ozone of theae pure woods, and
in the absence of strong winds that
permit the growth aud blossom and
bloom ol the apple in this country aa
nowhere elae ou earth. One rancher
told me be realized $800 oil' one Hereof fruit.
Sometimes I think of building a
chalet over there on the othor side of
the lake where slopes the Halcyon
mountain. There you can now Bee
the dark woods rising one plateau
above another. I could have a thous
and acres cleared away for llowers and
fruit and meadow aud lawn, and could
have trails cut through the nestles up
yonder in the boaom of those mountains. Just think what a place this
would Ue to escape from the apecies ol
tiger hunt that prevails in Wall
Btreet. It iB only tour miles across the
lake from those wonderlul mineral
springs of Halcyon.—P. A. O'Farrell.
