FIRE'S DEADLY WORK
Princeton Hotel Burned, Caus-
'vLing One Death and
Heavy Loss.
Eire  Brigade Makes   Good; Waterworks' First Trial Answers

it
grotfnd' has there been so large a fire as
occurred Sunday morning, when the
Princeton hotel, owned by Tas. Wallace,
was^lestroyed The 6re had gained considerable headway when the alarm was
rung on the bell, a big black volume of
smoke rolling up, indicating that it was
well beyond the incipient stage. Jjs"
earlier discovery and probable quenching may be accounted for by the fact
that it started in the quietest hour of the
twenty-four, between three and four in
the morning.
One Life Lost.
It was with difficulty that guests of the
house were aroused, some escaping with
only a suit of clothes, and one unfortunate man lost his life. At the inquest
held on the remains he was identified as
Yoza Djekovic of Grasic, Horvatsko,
Austria, familiarly k nown as 'Joe, the
Austrian.' It was in evidence that he
had h. - n flsgistfd t. *hi. «-^o.™°>»"vt midnight and a verdict returned in accord
ancewith the fects, exonerating all from
blame. The inquest was conducted by
Dr. McCaflfery, the jurors being Kirkpatrick, Murdoch, McDougall, Summers,
Semerad, Wilson.    .
Put Up Splendid Fight.
Although the fire brigade and citizen
helpers fought the flames inch by inch
with inadequate apparatus it was soon
evident that the fire was beyond control
in the doomed hotel and all effort was
bent toward saving the adjoining (rreat
Northern hotel and the Thomas block.
Blankets were bung along tbe exposed
walls while two streams of water from
hose without nozzles played on the walls
aflame. The heat was terrific and the
salvage of the Great Northern seemed
hopeless for a time, although the firemen
and the waj£__H_osks answered every call
made upon them. An attempt to blow
upasma]____og-___14ing next the GreaT
Northern proved abortive, but the tide
of!fortune had already turned and the
firemen operating from the roof of the
hetel were victorious in their combat
with the hungering flames.
Loss is Heavy. |
The burning of the ^Princeton hotel
removes one of the oldest landmarks, it
being the   first hotel in  town.   It cost
in the early days, when labor end material were high priced, about $10,000
and was insured for $4,500. Much of
the stock and furnishings were saved.
It is understood the hotel will be rebuilt
as soon as adjustment of insurance loss
is made.
Considerable damage was done to the
Great Northern, which is covered by insurance. The intervening street put the
Thomas block on the confines of the
danger zone, and as there was no wind it
was comparatively safe.
No one knows the immediate origin of
the fire but all indications favor the
theory that it was accidental and started
in a cupboard where candles were kept
for thy convenience of guests. When
first discovered the fire had enveloped
th" main st .ir■. ,y causing persons to
seek other means of exit by sliding down
verandah posts, jumping or taking the
backstairs
Procrastination is Thief.
This fire is another warning for citi
zens to be prepared with hose, nozzles
and other apparatus for efficient fire
fighting. Fire Chief Campbell has repeatedly warned citizens of the necessity
for a properly organized and equipped
fire brigade. He has given unsparingly
of his mature experience as a fireman
and his services were always valuable in
leading and directing attacks unon the
fiery element during the years past. It
was and is his aim to have the fire brigade uptodate in every respect. Now
that the town has a waterworks system
which has so recently given proof of its
capacity to meet all demands it would be
folly to further pursue a policy of neglect or indifference.
Notes.
The charred remains of the Priuceton
hotel will soon eive place to a new structure. .    .
Some of the vanguard of firefighters
suffered severe burns, cuts and biuises,
and all are recovering nicely.
Geo. Freeman injured his foot severely^
jumping from a window and Mike Gay-
nor had his face badly burned saving
their lives.
The ladies were there in force and by
fheir presence inciteed the .laddies to
feats of agility.
'Is there a man/ among you to help up
here ?' shouted the chief in roegaphonic
tones from the top of a building to a
bunch below—they all responded some.
Too bad  the no_g______l-____arrive as
ordered, with the hose.
Some pretty work done and close calls
for the firefighters—all honor to those
who know their duty and do it.
'I could have saved that building if
the nozzles had been here.'—Chief Campbell.

USEFUL MAP OF DISTRICT.
C M. Snowden has drawn a large map
of the district from information which
he has gained in his exploratory travels
and from notes made on the spot. He
probably knows the upper Similkameen
better than most prospectors and hunters,
his duties as game warden taking him to
remote parts of the district, and as guide
to parties he has become familiar with
all the trails, camping grounds, crossings
and passes. Tfie information imparted
by the map xvill be of interest to all who
intend going to Steamboat or to any of
the outl^yi/ig mining camps.
IMPORTANT PUBLIC MEETING.
