Further Particulars of Tuesday's
Fatal Fire-Archie Hickling's
Heroism-Julius Fuerst's Awful Death-Probing Mystery
The following details of tbe Okanagan hotel lire last Tuesday are taken
from tbe Vernon News:
No more appalling disaster bas ever
been recorded in the annals ol this
province than tbecatastropbe of Tues
day morning, when tne Okanagan
Hotel was destroyed by tire aud eleven
helpless victims perished in the Haines.
A sickening pall ol gloom rests over
the city, and nothing that can confront tbe eye from the printed page
will convey any adequate conception
of the horror and agony which has
been caused by thia terrific calamity.
I ^About a quarter to two o'clock the
lire bell pealed out its alarm and
those citizens wbo rushed to tbeir
windows saw by the rellection on the
sky that a big blaze had sprung up on
Baroard Avenue. lu a few minutes
the lire brigHde was on the scene, but
from the start it was apparent, that
nothing whatever could be done towards saving the building, and the
etfoits of the fire lighters would bave
to be confined to preventing the lire
from spreading.
The Okanagan Hotel, owned by Al-
bers it Sigalet, was a large brick-
veneered building situated on the corner of Barnard avenue and Vance
street, with stables aud outbuildings
cxteuding back in the reai to Troiim-n
street. Fortunately it bad no neighboring buildings to tbe west, several
viicant lots intervening between it and
tbe posl ollice. Ooubly fortunate also
was it that the night was calm, for
had a brisk breeze been blowing it
would bave beeu a matter of extreme
difficulty to prevent the lire from
spreading. As it was, the embers and
tlakes of burning shingles fioated off
in the air to incredible distances, some
being even found at Long Lake over
two miles away Irom tbe sceue of tbe
conflagration. A row of big shade
trees, wbicb surrounded tlie hotel on
tw. sides, further served to keep back
tbe beat from the buildings across the
street, their heavy foliage acting as a
very effective screen for a time during
tbe hottest part of the fire.
The orieiu of the blaze iB aB yet
unknown, all sorts ol theories being
advanced to account for it. According
tu tbe story of Constable Bailey, be
was standing in front of the Majestic
Cafe along witb the night manager,
Mr. King, who drew tbe policeman's
attention to a dicker of llame down
the Btreet. The constable ran down
to the hotel wheae he says he found a
blaze in the front hall ol tbe building,
already blazing and the Names were
shooting up Irom the roof. More
light on tbis point will no doubt be
given at the inquest later.
Constable Bailey furl Imi Hays that
at eleven o'clock he found a drunken
man on the sidewalk in front of the
hotel, and put him intu the hall (not
the one where thu lire was discovered;;
be looked in about hall an hour later
aud found him still asleep on the
lluor. It iH considered possible that
tbis mail may have started tbe lire,
and it is likely that his body is the
one that still remains unidentified.
If this ia the case, he would be alive
today bad be been taken to the police
When the liiemen arrived on the
scene prompt measures were taken Ht
once to rescue tbe inmates of the
blazing building. The stairs and hulls
were roaring alleys ol llame, but the
broad verandahs which ran along the
front afforded a means ol egreHs to the
occupants ol the rooms. There were
upwards ol Bixty people in the hotel
that uight, and in the contusion and
tumult it was impossible to know if
had escaped; but a rumor soon
circulated among the crowd ol citizeua
who lined the etreet that young Julius
Fueret, a step-son of Mr. Sigalet, one
ol the proprietors, waa still in Unbuilding. A few iiiiuiieiiiH later be
appeared at the window ol hia room in
the rear, and with a sen-am jumped
through the llanieH to the ground. He
appeared to light od bis heels, and
with mother screech ol agony, mink
backwards   into   the bbi/.e which was
shooting out lor many led boyotid the I wilh aii spaces Hulled wilh sawdust,
the contour of the bead being iu this
case fairly intact. A peculiarity in
the jaw alsu made it possible to identify tbe remains ol Jaa. Anderson, a
young man known and esteemed by
many Iriends under the familiar name
of " Scotty," who drove J. W. Olover's
baker wagon.
As lar as known the victims were
all unmarried men and several ol
them were strangers iiijthe city. Gannett and McKay wero young Englishmen who had arrived the previous day
(rom Calgary to work on the Roman
Catholic Church. I'hey had occupied
the same lied and their remains were
found together 011 the charred unit

smothered in their sleep. Wilbur

Before   tbis,   however, yeoman service bad   been   done by A. C. WiUon
and others; who  pushed ladderB thru'
the (lames, and  rushed into the upper
storey getting out the waiter girls and
the   Sigalet   family.     Mra.     Sigalet
fainted on   the verandah and was got
down with   great   difficulty  by H. H.
Deane   of   the   "Dreamland" moving
picture   company.     Kvery member of
tbe fire brigade exerted  himself to the
utmost, and C. 0. Mcltae, of the Royal
Bank, waB prominent among the citizens who lent   their   assistance in the
work of rescue.     But the hero ol  the
nigbt waa Archie Hickling, one of the
hoarders, who gave   his life in the service of   humanity.      He had all thru'
tbe first terrible acenes of the fire been
among the moat  active in the woik of
rescue, and with Mr. Sigalet bad made
two trips   into   the burning building,
each time bringing out a child. When
he came out   on the aecond  occasion
bis shirt was blazing ou bis hack, and
he was evidently suffering from tevere
burns;   just   then   oue of   tbe waiter
girls appeared screaming at an upper
window.     "I'll get ber or I'll die," he
exclaimed.     Darting into the hellish
cauldron ol llame, smoke and noxious
gaees, he reached  the girl and got her
out through  the  window, whence she
was speedily rescued; but heroic Hickling sank   back   into tbe pit of   death
and was seen no   more   alive.    Honor
to his   memory!     He waa an obscure
laboring   man   here;   hut    who   can
measure tbe greatness of hia character,
or estimate tbe glory ot the reward to
which he haa passed?
In the meantime four streams ol
wiiler were kept plying on the Royal
Hank on the oppo8ite coruer, and on
the wooden buildings across the street
wbicli were smoking and sizzling in
the heat and threatened at any moment to burat into tlaineB Within a
few minutes, however, the outer wall
and roof of the hoi el fell in with a

then considerably mitigated. In less
than an hour it was all over, and
nothing remained but smouldering
Nothing approachiug to a realization of tbe full gravity of tbe catastrophe had as yet, however, dawned
upon tbe crowd, and the citizens

City Council Grants $200—Repairs to the Flume to Start
Immediately—-No Complaints
at Court ot Revision
Some special business was taken up
at the meeting ot the city council
called aa a court of revision on the
cement sidewalk by-law on Wednesday
evening. Une item waa a grant ol
$200 to the Trades and Labor Council
towards the Lahor Day celebration.
Another was a resolution to repair
the Hume tu tbe power house that
waB waahed uut laat tpring.
The mayor and all the aldermen
were present except Aid. Stone.
MesBra. Kempster and Mathie appeared ae a delegation from the trades
and lahor council tuwarda the Labor
Day celebration.
Aid. Kimberley moved that a grant
of $200 be given.
The mayor said that the members
ol the tradeH and labor council were
moBtly rateyayera and ahould go into
tbe matter with their eyeB open. The
hasia on which they went laat year
was that every thousand dollars taken
out of the city treasury meant an
extra mill in taxation, ao that this
amount would mean two-tenths of a
Aid. Pradolini seconded Aid. Kim-
berley'a motion for a if-iOO grant, and
it carried unanimously.
The mayor reminded the delegates
that tbe agricultural show would he
held on the Oth and tenth of September aoon after labor day. They had
been well treated hy the council, and
be hoped they wouid turn in and help
tbe lair.
Mr. Kempster promised that they
would do what tbey could to assist it.
He thanked the council for tlieir
kiudnesB, and promised that tbe
money would he wil used.
Robert Tapping, who waa present,
said he had Sent in a letter that be
would like to have dealt with.
The mayor said tbey were only
dealing with special business and the
letter would hav; to be held over till
the regular meeting.
Mr. Tapping uttered bia thatika,
put on his bat, and walked out.
Tenders were opened for the building of the uew aeptic tank aa follows:
T. F. Sinclair, $5,880; W. A. Foote,
$5,750; C. B. Fromey, $5,3110.
The tenders were left for further
consideration at the regular meeting
ol tbe council tu he held next Friday
The mayor brought up the question
ol the ity Biipplying house connections to the sewerage wilh 4 inch pipe.
The city haa already let the contract
for 7,000 feet of 1 inch pipe to go to
the end uf the lots.
It was resolved to leave the matter
tu the I'ublic Wurks committee to
bring iu a recommendation to the next
meeting of tbe council.
Aid. Kimberley complained about
tbe manner in which nonet, of the Vs
were being put in for house connec
tion. Some nf them were out of line
with tbe plumbing in the bouses al
together, and would cause great inconvenience and expense to the property
The mayur said that while the
engineer had a fixed plan for laying
the Ya, tbey had been varying tbem
all the time to suit the convenience uf
Summer Cooking
We have a few Gasoline and Coal Oil Cook
Stoves left with ovens for same if desired. These are
wry nice to use in the hot weather, as they save luel
and do not heat up tho house.
Aid. Kimbe-rley said he bad heard
that the engineer bad actually rcfuaed
to allow the Vs to be placed where
they were moat convenient. If the
engineer did that kind of thing it was
time they gol someone else.
The mayor next called attention to
the Hume at the power house. He
pointed oui lhat aa lhe water waa
gelling low il was touiid that thu temporary llunie did not npply Hiillicient
power, and they had been compelled
lo use the gus engine at nights of late.
They should put in the DO leet washed
oui and repair the old Hume, and save
that expense. Hy pulling ou six or
seven men liny could rush it through
in a couple of days.
On motion of Aid. Macdonald and
Kimberley it wiih resolved that the
chairman of lhe water and light coin-
mitlee be authorised to  proceed    witb
the construction ol the So (net ol Qumt
washed out.
The mayor miid lhal while at the
cnant he had taken up lhe matter of
tlie insurance of the power plant with
the underwriters They had raised
it Irom $| 00 to $2.1)0 a thousand on
aooounl ol the HHM engine. He had
pointed mil to Ihem thai il was absurd
as   llie   K'is   engine    was only like -o
much cold iron.    Thuy bad promised
lo look inIn the mailer with a view
to itH udjiistinenl.
The ('"Hit ol Revision wiih duly

All iiiin, too, at n time when metals
are at about the lowest ligure on
record. W. II. Aldrich, managing
director of tbe Consolidated Mining
nml Smelting Company, commenting on the situation, says that one
of the most satisfactory signB of
the times is the wny that money is
coming in lo open up old properties about tin- richness of which
there has never heen any dispute,
but which have for various reasons
lain idle for the past few years.
The fact that. United IStntes capitalists are coming in to take over
these properties, not to use them
as a basis of stuck jobbing operation.'-:, but to operate them, shows
that they realize their value. Ks-
pecially is this so in regard to
silver lead mines.
This second growth of mining
seems as yet pretty well confined
to the Kootenay and Boundary
country, bill it is sure to spread to
other pur..- of the province. With
a rise in the price of metals which
is sure to come, it would spread
rapidly, and Kevelstoke as the first
gateway and outlet from the Kootenays to the north, must be the lirst
place to feel the effects of that
prosperous overflow. Already there
are signs of an awakening here,
i'rospeclors have been busier than
usual in the Big Bend country this
year and only lately a gang of men
was taken up to develop the mica
mines in that district. One of the
men who returned last week eaid
that the richness of these mines
had surprised him. It seems indeed to be only a question of getting in supplies and getting out
tbe product satisfactorily. Once let
the mining activity get a good beginning and it will spread. The
development of one mine will
blaze thu roads and clear the way
for the opening of others. This
time operations will not he of the
spasmodic and speculative character they were before. They will he
carried on by practical men who
have guaged the possibilities and
will see to it that something more
than a dollar is returned for every
dollar expended, hike the renascence of farming in the Northwest
in the first years of the century,
the second growth of mining in
British Columbia will bring with
it belter men and more capita.,
and they will come

WHEN    VOU    l-UV    8.DAI
Samuel (tampers   ol   the Ame
can Federation of Labor, who has
just returned from a visit to the
old country, makes some interesting observations on the tipping
system so prevalent there and on
the transatlantic steamers. He is
authority for the rather startling
statement thai the stewards on the
big liners are not allowed to keep
their tips, but have to hand the
money over to the company that
employs them. He tells ol one
passenger who refused to give the
usual tip, but said to the steward,
"If you will start a movement to
abolish the tipping system, and
make the company pay you decent
wages instead, 1 will give $25 towards it at once." It reminds us
of another American in London
who us he stepped out of a hansom
was greeted by a small boy who
hold out his hand for u tip after he
had paid lhe cabman. "Why,
what have you done?" asked lhe
visitor. "Please sir," replied the
urchin, "I saw you get into the
cab." This was the gentleman
| who as he was sailing away yelled
to the crowd on the dock. "If there
is a man. woman or child in this
country that I haven't tipped, let
them speak now. It is their last
The tipping evil is. however, by
no means confined to the old country. It is a tribute too often levied
from travellers in this country.
In sleeping cirs, in diners, in hotels
and on steamboats the system
prevails, and the man who can
give the biggest tip generally gets
the best service. It is a system
that works out with no equity and
is based on no business principle.
When a man buys his ticket and
pays for his accommodation he
should be entitled to service as
good as that of anyone else who I
travels o'i the road; but under the
tipping sy.-l.'m the man who can I
afford to scattei i.irgess among the :
employee- is apt to be fawned on ,
to the neglect of others, lt is unfair to the uien. It promotes competition ior places where tips can
lie ol'tained. and leads to lower
wages, which the employee willingly accepts in the   bo] • he i in
ercome a    lei    "-   I     the bribes
he may receive for favor- rendered.
It   can   be   Been   that tbe rewards
under such a  system cannot

everything is convenient for the

withholds him from putting forth

the less efficient man, who bustles
around the millionaire, and who
jingles the silver bits in his pocket
as a reminder to him before he
rises from the table. I'ruler such
a system plausible cheek grows
rich, wbile modest merit pines in a
shady background.
The remedy seems to lie in transportation companies paying their
employees wages that will render
them independent of tips, and
posting up notices to the effect that
any servant found taking a tip
shall be discharged. This is a
system adoplod in some of the
large American hotels, and it has
been found to work to the satisfaction of the customers. If adopted
by the transportation companies
it would enable the tiaveller to
adjust his finances to his trip, confident that he would receive exactly the same attention as everyone else.
There seems to be a great deal of
apathy among the ratepayers of
Revelstoke in regard to their civic
affairs. At tbe Court of Revision
on cement sidewalks held on Wednesday night not one turned up,
A year hence they may be complaining about the taxation for the
walks, but if there is any kicking
to be done it should he done in
time. Perhaps all are so well
satisfied that they are willing to
let it go anyhow, but tbere certainly seems to be generally a
deplorable indifference among ratepayers as to the conduct of civic
affairs. Perhaps they spend all
their energy in shouting at election
time, but if it were distributed in
the preservation of a vigilant attitude throughout the year the town
would be none the worse for it.

The above is the latest cluh tu be

The need uf au orgaui/.ation ol this
kind haB loug been felt by the Cuth

Dennehy, ol Vaucouver, to make it
an established lact. Through his instrumentality a meeting was called on
August lOih at the house ol Mr. D.

Other important committee! have

considered that these had better be
left to a later meeting when many

The object ot the club is to promote
the social unity of tbe congregation
to entertain transient Catholic visitors to the city, who have hitherto been
left to shift for themselves and to be a
general social and improvement society for its members, lt will at all
times be an unorgauized body to act

Revelstoke Defeats Armstrong at Baseball by

The Revelstoke baseball team playid
in Armstrong on Wednesday and returned with the first win tbey haie
had this season. The game was a
first-class exhibition of ball for the
Revelstoke team, except iu the second
innings when Bli.ndhaiu, the Big
Eddy pitcher who was on tbe slab fur
Revelstoke, twisted his arm and could
not locate the plate thus letting in 5
runs with only two out. Burridge
was called in from the out Held to do
the pitching while Mcluerney relieved
Johnston behind the bat. This change
certainly stopped the run getting of
