Vernon, B. C, Aug, 10.���An
appalling disaster occurred here
early this morning when the Ok-
anagan hotel was destroyed by |
fire and eleven persons perished
in the flames.
The building was a large brick-
veneer structure and was patron- j
ized chiefly by the loboring class.
It had about sixty guests, and so |
sudden was the onrush of the
flames that those who escaped
did so with great difficulty, while
numbers never got out of their
The fire was discovred about 2
o'clock by a policeman, who immediately gave the alarm; but
when the fire brigade arrived a
few minutes later both stairways
were seething alleys of flames,
and in an incredibly short time
the building was blazing in all
The night was fortunately calm
and the brigade succeeded in saving adjoining buildings from destruction, though at one time the
safety of the business portion of
the city was threatened.
This morning when a gang of
men began the work of search
ing the ruins a terribly grew-
some sight was revealed as body
after body was brought to view
until eleven were removed. The
remains were so charred and
blackened as to make it a matter
of difficulty to identify the victims, but the following are
known to have perished:
Wilbur Smith, carpenter ; J. J
Funston, laborer; James Anderson delivery man for J. W. Glover;
Julius Fuerst, bartender, a relative of the proprietors of the
hotel, from Wdtaskiwin ; Gaorge
Gannett and George McKay, of
Calgary; George Seltgast, Archibald Hickling, M. Chabtree, Wm.

Seattle, Wash., July 31.-Realizing the great commercial future of North Central Washington because of its prolific wheat
fields and wonderful orchards,
the Great Northern Railway is
preparing to rush construction in
that part of the state, which has
been neglected so many years
from a transportation standpoint.
Contracts are to be let this week
for the construction of a seventy
mile line to connect Brewster
and Oroviile, near the Canadian
boundary. Later on, this line
will be built south to a junction
with the main line at Wenatchee.
Track-laying on the Waterville
branch has been pushed rapidly
and the work is completed twenty
miles above the Columbia River.
These branches will be exceptionally rich feeders for the Hill lines.
The Columbia River branch from
the Canadian boundary will ultimately result in establishing a
water level haul.
Regatta No. Three of the 1909
series, will be held at Naramata,
under the auspices of the Naramata Amateur Athletic and

from 1:30 to 2:0 given bv the |
Summerland Brass and Reed
The great success of the last
regatta has spurred the management to greater efforts and everything points to one of the
most exciting and spectacular
events of the season. Arrangements for handling the crowd are
greatly improved, the capacity of
the grandstand has been nearly
doubled and the arrangements
are complete in every way for
providing the brightest and snappiest five hours sport ever offered to the public in the Okanagan.
On the enlarged grandstand
there are 20 boxes, seating 8 persons each. Box seats, 50c, full
boxes, $3. Grand stand seats
25c. Those desiring boxes should

Peaches are beginning to come
in. There will be considerably
more to market than was expected in the spring.
Word has been received from
W. H. Keary, Manager of the
Provincial Exhibition at New
Westminster, to the effect that
the management will pay all
freight, or express, charges on
any individual exhibits of fruit
or vegetables, will see that they
are exhibited, and will forward
any prizes won to the winners
immediately after the close of
the exhibition. Penticton is one
of the few places that will have
peaches this year, and it would
be a good advertisement for the
place if a number of the growers
would forward exhibits.
Those having friends visiting them
will confer a favor by acquainting the
Press with the fact. All other local
news thankfully received.

Mr. James Goldie, who returned after a few days absence in
in the boundary country, reports
that a gang of ninety men are
actively engaged at .construction
work near Rock Crek on the Mid*
way extension. Work has. beea
begun, not at the actual end of
the twelve miles of the gradejeon-
structed by the Midway-Vernon
a few years ago, but a little
farther on. The men are engaged for two months, and although
the people in the vicinity do not
view seriously the present operations, it is believed that, after
the next session of the Dominion
parliament, at which an adjustment of the different charters
held by the Spokane and British
Columbia Railway company will
be applied for, that company will
push the construction of its line
through to the coast. The work
being done at the present by the
company is believed to be for the
purpose of holding its charter or
to gain the confidence of the government.
C. P. R. and Hope Pass.
Vancouver* B. C, Aug* MX ���
There are: new developments in
the railway situation in the Similkameen district. The Canadian
Pacific railway may j build a line
across the Hope mountains to a
point opposite Hope station on
the main line, says a report
brought by a Canadian Pacific
official from the upper country.
A large party of C. P. R. engineers under the direction of
Mr. W. I. Bassett, formerly assistant chief engineer of the V.
V. & E. railway, is now said to
be seeking a route across the
range. Surveyors have already
gone west up the Otter river to
its headwaters at the summit and
are now working down the Coq-
uahalla river, which flows into
the Fraser on the west side of
the divide. In some particulars
the route from Princeton west
will almost parallel the located
route of the Great Northern,
whose graders are now at Princeton.
The C. P. R. has already located several lines from Midway,
the terminus of its Columbia &
Western branch, via Southern
Okanagan to Merritt, whence a
branch line now extends to the
main line at Spences Bridge.
The distance from Princeton to
Vancouver via the' Hope mountains is 164 miles, as compared
with 309 via Spqnces Bridge.
The C. P. R,'has*been quietly
preparing data abqbt the route
for several years.' At had an employee camped out in the Hope
mountains all last fainter in order to take records^of the snow*

Any person enjoying a rough
ride over an exceedingly rough, I
though picturesque mountain
trail should make the trip to this
reservoir. Last Tuesday, in
ompany with W. D. Lan. aster,
superintendent of the irrigation
system and son, we visited this i
reservoir for the first time. The
ascent required five and one-half
hours and the return trip five,
hours. Those who have not
visited this or the Ellis Creek
reservoir, can little imagine the
amount of work done, and expenditure made, by the Land Co.
in order to provide the Penticton
fruit lots with an adequate water
supply. The Penticton Creek
reservoir is somewhat larger
than that at the head of Ellis
Greek, being about three-fourths
of a mile long by one-fourth
wide. It is constructed by build-
a large darn across a valley, j
While we were present, Mr. i
1/tncaster had the water from
the reservoir turned on for the
first time this season, there having been sufficient for all requirements up to the present time
from the numerous tributaries
lower down. As the irrigation
season will terminate about the
20th inst., no further evidence
of the abundance of th�� water
supply need be given. The Company keep two men at this reservoir, they being engaged in'
strengthening the dam and seeing that everything goes all
right. A third reservoir is now
under construction on one of the
tributaries of Ellis Creek. i
On leaving Penticton, the trail
ascends very rapidly until   the
summit,    probably    nearly    six
thousand feet above sea level,  is
reached about twelve miles from '
town.   High as is the altitude, I
clover and   timothy   are  found'
growing vigorously  everywhere I
along the trail, the seed having
been dropped from hay that was
packed   over  the  trail for the'
l horses at work when the dam [
\ was under construction.     Some
1 good timber, pine, rlr and tam-
I arac, is met with on the ascent ;
but near the summit, and from I
there to the reservoir, only black i
pine exists. This latter, although I
growing very tall and straight, |
does not grow  large enough  to
be of  any commercial   importance.
i This great country, too high
! and rough to ever be of value for
' farming, should be a vertiable
I Paradise for the hunter. Where
water is plentiful, animal life
' is always certain to be abundant,
and here streams and springs are
continually to be met with. The
tracks of a wildcat were plainly
discernable along a great portion
of the trail, while deer tracks
were to be seen everywhere. No
game was seen, however, with
the exception of some grouse.
The larger game, no doubt being
aware of our approach, kept out

In addition to its value as a
game   preserve,   this  mountain
j land, through its thick growth of
| black   pine,   is invaluable as a
water conserver.   It would be a
good plan for the provincial government  to  acquire   this  land
1 from the Canadian Pacifiic Railway, to which it now belongs,
and convert the region into a reserve with fire rangers to pre-
j vent the devastation of the timber growth.    Once this timber
were swept away by fires,  the
; snow would melt quickly in the
[ springs and run off, lessening the
| supply for the irrigation of the
fruit lands on the benches and in
the valley below during the dry,
warm summers.

Our trees are grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that, of tin Okanagan Valley, ar.d our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast seek, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply or libimis roots, Which count for much In making an investment In an orchard a safe and
permanent one. J

Rumor is again busy with the
Midway and Vernon Railway,
and it is now stated that several
charters will be combined by a
Spokane syndicate which will ask
the Dominion Government for an
extension of the subsidy next
session. Strength is added to
this surmise from the fact that
about three miles of the old line
are being graded near Midway,
and it is asserted that some work
will also be done on this end
either this fall or next spring.
Those best informed, however,
place little faith in these rumors,
and the opinion is generally held
that this is only another bluff
added to the long list of such
movements which has characterized the history of this ill-fated
project.���Vernon News.

The Municipal Council is taking
steps towards the acquisition of
the Main St. Indian Reserve.
There will be quite a number of
strings to pull in order to get
possession of this tract of land,
but no doubt the purpose can be
accomplished if the Indians are
disposed to sell. As the property
is of no use to them on account
of its carrying no water record,
the probability is that a fair
bargain may be struck.

Customs Office for Postal Packages.
A customs office for postal
packages has been established at
Penticton with Mr. E. 0. Atkinson, postmaster, in charge.
Packages addressed to Penticton
coming through the mails from
other countries will, therefore, be
cleared at this point instead of at
Vernon as in the past.
The establishment of this office
is the direct outcome of a visit in
June by W. Marchant, of Victoria, Dominion Inspector of Customs. The Penticton Board of
Trade must, however, be given
the credit for previously pressing upon the Department of Customs the need of the office.
When in Penticton, Mr. Mar-
chant assured the Press that he
would recommend the establishment of this branch of the customs service.
Here is another step forward
and another year or two hence
should see the establishment of
an office embracing all departments of the service. Join the
Board of Trade and help in the
advancement of your town. THE PENTICTON PRESS, PENTICTON, B.C. AUGUST 14, 1909.

combat: tlie men wore denf to nil lint
the roaring in their cars, blinded to nil
btlt hate, insensible to everything but
tbe blood mania. Their trampliuf feet
caused the building t. rumble nud
shake ns though some monster were
running amuck.
Meanwhile a bareheaded man rushed
out of Ihe store beneath, bumping into
n pedestrian wli.i had paused on the
sidewalk, and together tbey scurried
up tl.i.' stairs. The dory which Hoy
had seen at sea had shot the breakers,
und now its three passengers were
tracking through the wet sand toward
Front street. Rill Wheaton in the lend.
He wns followed by two rawboned
meu who traveled without baggage.
Tbi' pity was awakening with the sun
which reared a copper rim out of Ihe
sea. Judge Stillnian and Voorhees
came down from the hotel and paused
to gaze through, the mists at a caravan
of mule teams which trotted iuto tbe
other end of the street wltb jingle nnd
clank. The wagous were blue with
soldiers, the early golden rays slanting trim their Kr.igs. and they were
bound for tlie Midas.
Out of the fogs which clung so
thickly to the tundra there came two
other horses, distorted and unreal, on
oue n girl, on the other a figure of
pain and tragedy, a grotesque creature
that swayed Stiffly to the motion of its
steed, iU face writhed iuto lines of
suffering, its hands clutching cantle
uud horn.
It was as though fate, with invisible
touch, were setting her stage for tlie
Inst act of this play, assembling tlie
principals close to the golden sands
where first they had made entrance.
The man and tbe girl came face to
ftiee with the judge and marshal, who
cried ont upon seeing them, but as
they reined In, out from the stairs beside them a man shot amid clatter nnd
"tlive me a band���quick!" he shouted
to them.
"What's  Up?"   Inquired  the  marshal
"It's murder! McNamura and Olen
Ister!" He dashed buck up the steps
behind Voorhees. the judge following
while muffled cries came from above.
Tbe gambler turned toward the three
meu who wvre hurrying from tlie
beach and. recognizing Wheaton.
called to liitn: "Untie iny feet! Cut
the ropes!    Quick!"
"What's the trouble?" the lawyer
asked, but ou hearing tllenlster's name
bounded alter the Judge, leaving one
of liis coinpauiiins to free the rider.
They could hear the light now and all
crowded toward tbe door. Helen with
her brother, iu spite of Ids wurubig ta
stay behind.
She never reinenibered luiw she
climbed those stairs, for sbe was borne
along by thai hypnotic power which
drags, one to behold a catastrophe in
spite of his will Iteaclilng the room
she stood appalled; for the group she
had jollied watched two raging things
that rushed al each other with inhuman cries, ragged, bleeding, lighting
on a carpet of debris ICvery loose and

splinters as though by iron slugs in a
whirling cylinder

the labored breath back into their
With a ding of his long arms the
young man hurled the Intruder aside
so violently that his head struck the
iron safe and he collapsed Insensible
Theu without apparent notice of the
Interruption, the fight went on. It was
seen during this respite that McNa
mara's mouth was running water as
though he were deathly sick, while
every retch brought forth a groan

.Me.Vavnara's distress was patent to
his nntngotlist. who advanced upou
hlin with tin' hunger of promised vie
tory, but tile young man's muscles
obeyed Ills commands sluggishly: his
ribs seemed broken, liis back was
weak, and on the Inner side of his legs
the flesh was quivering As they came
together thi' boss reached iqi his rlghl
hand and caught the minor bj the fine
burying   thumb  and   lingers  crablike
into his cheeks, forcing his slack jaws
apart, thrusting his head backward.,
while hi- centered every ounce of his
strength in the effort lo maim Rot
fell   the   flesh   gnlng   way   and   flung
himself backward to break tlie hot
whereupon ihe Other summoned his
wasting energy and plunged toward
the safe; where lay tbe revolver In
stinet warned (Jleuister of trencheri,
told him that the man had sought this
last resource to save himself, and as
he saw him turn his hack and reach
for the weapon the youth leaped like a
panther, seizing him nbout the waisi
gfdtfjlluu McNamara's wrist with hi!
light hand. For Ihe tirst time during
tlie combat tbey were not face to face
ami on the instant Itoy realized tin
advantage given him through the oth
ers pcrtidy, realized the wrestler's
bold that was his and knew that the
moment of victory was conic.
Tlie telling takes much time, but so
quickly had these ihings happened thai
the footsteps of the soldiers had not
yei reached llie door when llie men
were locked beside the safe.
Of what happened next many garbled accounts have gone forth, for of
all those present none but tlie Bronco
Kid knew its significance and ever recounted tlie truth concerning it. Some
������Intra that the younger Jiiau was seized
with a fear of death which multlplle I
his enormous strength, others that the
power died in Ids adversary as reward
for his treason, but it was not so.
\o sooner bad Itoy encompassed McNamara's waist from the rear than be
slid his damaged hand up past the oth
er's chest and around the back of bis
neck, thus bringing Ids own left arm
close under his enemy's left armpit,
wedging the receiver's head forward,
while with his other hand he grasped
tbe politician's right wrist close to the
revolver, thus holding him in a grasp
which could not be broken. Now enme
the test. The two bodies set them
selves rocklike nnd rigid. There wns
no hinging about, (.'ailing up the final
atom of bis strength. Olenlster bore
backward with his right arm. and it
became a contest for the weapon,
which, clutched in the two hands,
swayed back and forth or darted up
and down, the fury of resistance causing It to trace formless patterns in the
air with its muzzle. McNamara shook
himself, but he wns close Against Unsafe and could not escape, his head
bowed forward by the lock of tlie miner's left arm. uud so he strained till the
breath clogged In his throat. Despite
tbe grievous toil ids right hand moved
back slightly. His feet shifted a lilt,
while the blood seemed bursting from
his eyes, but he found that the long
fingers encircling Ids wrist were like
gvyea weighted with the strength of
the bills and the irresistible vigor of
youth which knew no defeat. Slowly.
Inch by inch, the great man's arm was
dragged back, down past bis side, while
the strangling labor of his breath show
ed at what awful eost. The muzzle of
the gun described a semicircle and tho
knotted hands began to travel toward
the left, more raoidly now, across his
broad back. Slid be struggled aud
wrenched, but uselessly. He strove to
fire the weapon, but his fingers were
woven si limit it so tbat the hammer
would not work Then the miner be-
uran forcing upward.
The white skill beneath the men's
-trips of clothing wus stretched over
great knots and ridges which sunk and
swelled and quivered. Helen, watching
In silent terror, felt her brother sinking
his fingers into her shoulder and beard
him panting, his face ablaze with excitement, while she became conscious
that be had repeated time and again:
"It's tbe hammer lock���tbe hammer
By now' McNamara's arm was bent
and cramped upon his back, and then
they saw Olenister's shoulder dip. his
elbow come closer to bis side, and his
Isidy heave in one final terrific effort
as though pushing a heavy weight
In the silence something snapped like
a slick. There came a deafening report and tlie scream of a strong man
overcome with agony. McNamara
went to bis knees and sagged forward
on to his face as though every bone iu
his huge bulk had turned to wnter.
while his master reeled back against
the opposite wall his heels dragging
In the litter, bringing lip with outflung
arms as though fearful of falling,
swaying, blind, exhausted, his face
blackened by the explosion of the revolver, yet grim with the light of victory.
Judge Stlllman shouted hysterically:
"Arrest that num. quick! Don't let
him go!"
It   was  the  miner's   first  realization
that  others   were  there.     liaising  his I
head   he   stared   at    the   faces   close ,
against the partition, then groaned the
words: .
"I beat tbe traitor a nil-and-I broke

The uproar of the past few minutes

direction til. (hiding no room on the
stairs, tbey had massed in tlie street
below while the word flew from lip to
lip concerning this closing scene of
ll ar drama, the battle of the Midas,

bal's genie, a wondrous tale took shape
from Ihe rumors. Men shouldered one
another eagerly for a glimpse of tlie
actors, and when tlie press streamed
out. greeted it witli volleys of questions. They saw the unconscious marshal bririic forth, followed by the old
Ju.lge. now a palsied wretch, slinking

August Home Journal.
Thirty-two pages of select
reading including new fashions,
short stories, and beautiful illius-
trations, make the August issue
of The Home Journal the best
published of that progressive
woman's magazine.
Special articles and illistrations
on "The Pure Milk Campaign"
tell about the splendid work being done in the vicinity of Toronto. "Regatta Day in St. John's,
Nfid.," is a graphic description
of one of the greatest celebra-
lionsof that ancient colony. It
\* written by Lady Gay and is in
her best style.
The second big instalment of
the serial, "The Mystery of
Harry Ingram, "will doubtless be
read with interest by those having read the opening chapters of
t lis absorbing mystery story
iu the July issue.
"Wild Flowers of August" will
be closely read by those interested in nature study. Agnes Norton has contributed "East is
East and West is West." It
takes one back to the days when
warships and sailors made life
happy at Halifax.
The "Household Hints" and
"Culinary Conceits" pages are
brim full of interesting notes.
"Cabbages and Kings" and "But
Thats Another Story" are in a
lighter vein and the splendid
illistrations and descriptive matter of fashions for young and old

We have very few water lots left; they will be big money makers for you at price quoted.
It is safe to predict that in three years this property will sell at $25.00 and in a few more
years at $50.00 per foot. Invest your dollars at home, they will make more for you here than
if put into boom propositions hundreds of miles away.
