FIRE AT
SAW MILL
Lumber Piles Ablaze
at the Nelson Saw
and  Planing
Mill.
What might have proved to be one
of tlie most disastrous fires in Nelson
for many years occurred about two
oYlnrk this afternoon, in the lumber
yards ��>f the Nelson Saw and Planing
Mill. The lire started in a large lumber pile immediately back of the plan-
inj-f mill department and as the Fire
Department was hampered somewhat
iu making a response the Haines had
spread to several piles and was blazing fiercely on the arrival of the Department.
Two lines of hose were quickly run
and for a few minutes it looked us if
the tire had heen gotten under Control
lint as a stiff wind from the south was
blowing the fire broke out in several
plaees. After half an hour of exceedingly hard work the fire was extinguished with the exception of a pile
of  sawdust      which    continued    to
smoulder.
The saw mill which lies soutli about
200 yards of th*' place where the lire
originated, and which was also in a
direct line with the wind, was set a
blaze from the sparks of the lire. Had
it not heen I'or 'tlie many men and
hoys, who labored iucessently with
buckets carrying water from the pond
the saw mill would have been burned,
hut as a result of their hard work the
mill was saved.
'Ihe cause of the fire is unknown,
hut it is thought that it was caused
l��y a Spark   from   the   smokestack   of
the planing mill.   The damage to the
lumber was Blight, but the wooden
bridge connecting the two mills was
badly horned. No damage was done
to either mill, except at the sawmill,
many boards had to he torn up to get
at the lire, which was burning in the
waste material under tlie mill. The
members of the tire department are to

work.

details of tlie triple murder at Lake
LaBarriere. Tetede Bonle, an Indian,
it is alleged killed all his relatives,
his uncle, his children   and   his wife.
Two years ago in a rage, it is said

a few moments it is alleged he killed
his wife. It was winter and he took
her out to the ice and cut a hole
through it. Through this hole he
held her head downwards till life was
extinct, then he took her body away
and hid it. Bailiff A. .1. Naull of

LOOKS QUEER.
ooods supposed to be Destroyed During smallpox scare Still Intact.
Winnipeg. Aug. 1, ��� There are
numerous reports floating around
town of a considerable raid on tlm
civic treasury in connection witli tlie
recent smallpox scare. The mayor
and tlie medical health officer of the
elty of Winnipeg certify to aelaim for
compensation for goods destroyed,
whieh were exposed   to eontagion, the
in mil   to   be   presented  to   the pro-
vineial board of health. Under the
law. claims for sums over (500 go to
tlie provincial board, and under that
sum to the municipalities. It has
since been ascertained that goods
representing several hundred dollars
iu value, claimed under this account
as being destroyed, were not destroyed. The civic health committee is
watching tlie matter under the apprehension that the provincial board of
health will decline to pay the amount
of the claim or else reduce it down to
1500, and In either event it would
come back to the city to pay. Some
ratepayers are enquiring us to what
this smallpox scare has cost the city,
and others are speculating as to tlie
enormous amount it would huve cost
if tlie panic whieli was sought to be
created had not been held in check by
the sober common sense of the Community.

BOARDS   OF
TRADE   CONGRESS.
Of   a
ami
Nelaon Daily IDnBrlmtST-tC
UoftrdH of Trade are essentially
cojnmevcial nalniv or oliafftoter
of all inland towns tlie oonnnctalal
supi'i'inai'v "f No.Hon is loo obvious to
in- open for dispute. It Is the natural
home of the Congress of tho Associated
Hoards for Eastern British Columbia,
���mil it should H��) be made by formal
rem dutton.    	
,��W)WVvivw/wv*vw.w^^
The second session of the CongroBS
of the Associated Hoards of Trade for
Eastern British Columbia Is about to
be held in this City, This is the commercial Parliament of the principal
mining region of the Province. It may
not have the power to put Its wishes
Into   the  form  of   legal   enactments
which all will 1 bilged to obey, but
its members are the pick of the business class of thc community, and thej
understand better tin' public  requirements than do  those who compose tin-
Legislature   at    Victoria.    Although,
therefore, not endowed with power to
make enactments  in the name of llei
Majesty,   anything   that   It   is  tlicli
wish to recommend   is  backed  by  u
judgment   which    Bhould   insure  its
adoption   by   that   body   of   commissioned legislators whose special function  it  is to  moke the laws of the
country.
There will be many matters conic
up for consideration and action, all of
them of interest to thc section of the
Province represented at the Congress
and many of them of much Importance. Each local Hoard of Trade is
Invited to submit questions which it
desires to bring to the attention of
the Congress, and in this manner the
wants of the entire section will be
brought   under   notice.     We   do   not
understand, however, that because a
question is submitted for consideration
the Associated Hoards arc bound to
take action on it. For example, the
Nelson Hoard of Trade is asking this
Congress to recommend  that the local
Land Registry otlice beat once opened
for business. From a local standpoint that is au excellent recommendation, It is bigll time this oflice
was opened, and when put at the
service of the public It will prove to
be a great accommodation. But it is
so essentially a local affair that thc
Associated Boards may not regard it
as properly coming within their sphere
of Influence; that is. they would
hold themselves justified iu  passing
over   it   if   such   was     their     wish,
Our local  Hoard   is  recommending
some other   mutters,   however.    It   is
asking theCongress to take up the question of a better postal   service in this
part of the   Province,   to  recommend
the publication of monthly mining reports liy the Government, to  consider
the preservation of trout in tlie Inland
waters, anil to advise certain   amendments to the mining laws.    These arc
all matters of general interest,and the
Congress will feel itself bound to takl
action   upon   tbem.    Tho   postal  service is abominable,and the Associated
Hoards will earu the public   gratitude
if they pasH n resolution strongonough
to bring the postal authorities to their
senses. There is great danger of our
trout being exterminated, which would
be a calamity; If the Congress can do
anything to avert it, it Bhould do so.
The wisdom of monthly mining reports is so obvious that one is surprised the Legislature did not provide for them long ago; a sharp reminder of its neglected duty from the
Associated Hoards ought to have 11
good effect. These are matters that
will come up at the suggestion of the
Nelson Hoard; there are other questions recommended by other Hoards,
of equal Importance and utility, some
of them perhaps of greater public interest.        Whatever     tlie     Associated
liounis may determine In respect to
them will deserve the most serious
consideration o_ the Oovormontal and
Legislative authorities thai are directly concerned.
The first Congress of the Associated
Hoards of Trade met at Rossland; the
second, or present, one at Kelson,

Allied.
London, Aug.I.- The Dnlco of Marl
borougli bad most IntereBtlnff ox-perl-
enees in South Afrioa, and though
piirticlliatlng in many of lho liglils
and undergoing long marohoe, cnme
through without a eoratoh or a day's
Illness, After leaving Bloemfontein,
where ho waa attached to Lord Roh
erts' stair, he joined Gen, Ian llnmil-
toil, acting   as    "gallu|iei'"    for   lllin
during the hard-fought progrosa inward Pretoria, The Duke had several
narrow esoapes, On one occasion a
sliell burst within n few feel of liim.
A fragment hit (ienernl Hamilton 111
the small of the baoh and knocked
him down, but by great. luck 1
it failed to penetrate. The Dnko of
Marlborough escaped all the Hying
fragment*. Entering Pretorin ahead
of the army the Unite, aocoinpauled
only by his cousin, Mr, Winston
Ohurohlll, rode out to the enclosure
where the Itrit.isb officers were imprisoned. These at BrBt took hlin for
a Hoer, but when bo was recognized
tbe prisoners set up a howl of delight.
A Boer sentry raised his gun and almoat
tired point blank, but the Commandant stopped hi in and surrendered.
The Britisli officers, pale and with
beards of six months' growth, cried,
laughed ami oheered like madmen.
Then tbey hoisted a Union Jack,
made during their captivity "ill of
stolen vlrkleur, and treasured up till
tbat long expected moment.
THEY  GOT THE GUBS.
Two prospectors Attacked n. a Silver Tin on
Sophie Mountain.
Daniel und Thomas English, who
reside on l.e Roi Avenue nenr Cliff
street, have a couple of silver lip cubs
which they captured on Sophie Mountain on Tuesday evening of last week,
says tlie Kossland Miner. The two
men, who are father and son. own
some mineral claims on Sophie Moun-
tain on whioh tbey have been recently
doing assessment work, They were
returning to eainpun Tuesday evening
lust when they saw coining towards
them along them trail a Bhe bear ami
two oubs, The big hear was evidently in bad bunuir. niul made at once
for the prospectors, Daniel fortunntoly
bad a heavy caliber revolver with bim
and tired at tlie bear when slie was
about'.Ti feet away. Tlie bullet struck
her but did not inflict a fatal wound,
Witli a fierce growl she Increased her
speecL
Within I.", feet of where tlie two
prospectors Stood there was a large
log, and as tbe bear put her front
paws ou tbe top of it. her breast offered 11 fair mark,and a sic,I was fired
which was intended tu reach her
heart, It struck fair, tbe blood gush -
ed from the wound onto tbe log. The
bear did not come over the log. but
turned and dasbed off Into tbe brush,
leaving a trail of blood behind her.
A Hcarcb was made for her. but slie
could not be found. Tbe supposition
is tbat slie was mortally wounded and
crawled off to bcr den to die.
Thc cubs took refuge during tlie fu-
silade in a dead cedar tree tbat was
75 feet high, and from tins height
tbey looked quietly down at the two
prospectors witli a what-ure-yim-gn-
ing-to-do-about-it air. An axe was
procured from tbe camp, which was
close at band, and tbe tree felled. The
cubs were   not severely   hurt   liy   the
fall, and scampered off  ton  smaller
tree, which was about SO feet high. A
couple of pieces of rope were procured and after a short climb they
were lassoed and placed in bags and
brought to this city.
The cubs are cunning little fellows
and weigh probably :;n pounds each.
Tbey are of a very dark-brown color
with white muzzles. Tbey arc said In
be genuine silver-tip bears. They are
between two and a half :nul three
months old. So far they have lieen
fed on condensed milk, which they
partake of greedily. It is tlie intention of the owners to sell them when
they have become a little larger to
either a circus or h museum,
