Crow's Nest will be a town of some
importance. It is about fifty miles east
of Fernie at tbe summit Next spring

divisional point, and establish points at
Lethbridge and Crow's Nest Paitof

the only hotel keeper at Crow's Nest,
intends to build a much larger hotel
thie winter.
Last Sunday, on a Jtrail near Coal
Creek Nansen and Shearer had a
row over a dog which both of them
claimed. Both men had been hunting and had guns in their hands.
They did not shoot each other but
had a row iu the old-fashioned manner. The case was heard in the pro
vincial court on Tuesday and dis
missed. This proves that even a dog
will sometimes cause expense and
trouble.    _	
Ride on  Freights

General Superintendent of ihe C.P.RT,

travelling between points on the Pacific
Division. The privilege was cancelled
wilh the inauguration ot' the double
daily train service, but after the withdrawal of (hat service travellers suffered
considerable inconvenience by often
having to wait over all day in some
littk   place. Representations    were
made to the C, V. K. and the privilege

Flathead Oil Claims
W, G. Bumham, a locator of claims
in Ihe hat head valley, states that the
chief difficulty facing the locators of oil
lands, is to discover which of the locators have compiled with the laws in
the matter of staking and recording.
Mr. Rurnham is quite satisfied that
the country is rich and that those who
have acquired rights there will make
profits. He lays no blame upon the
provincial government, but says that in
'lie rush for claims prior Unations were
overlooked, and the multiplicity of
stakes on some ground will certainly
,;>us(.' litigation which may have the
effect of retarding the development of
die country. Mr. Bumham will have,
conceding every conflicting claim, over
6°0 acres of good oil lands, and is quite
intent with   his ptoperty.     He be-
,,eve9 that any Canadian company
grating in the oil fields can make a
handsome profit on any outlay.

London, Oct. 26.—Owing to the North Sea tragedy pre-
limmary orders for mutual support and co-operation have
been issued by the Admiralty to the Channel and Mediterranean home fleets.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 26. At midnight the Admiralty
announced that they had not yet received Admiral Rojeet-
venkys reasons for firing on the English fishing" fleet.
London, Oct. 26. Late last evening the foreign office
announced that no further statement in reference to the
North Sea tragedy would be issued tonight it being considered unwise to make any intermediate proclamation concerning diplomatic proceedings, in view of Great Britain's
announcement that the matter would not brook delav.
Hight Be So-
New York, Oct. 26. Yesterday, for the Standard Oil
Company, T. Dodd issued a statement denying that the
Standard was or ever had been in any way interested in any
business not directly related with and necessary to the petroleum trade. Neither had the company or any of its offiicers
taken part in securing nominations of any candidate for
office. '
Remember the Crane
London,, Oct. 26.—The firing of the Russian fleet at the
fishing boats off Spurnhead is looked upon as a deliberate
act to draw England into war. Last Saturday morning the
Russians fired into the fishing fleet sinking the Crane and
killing its skipper and one other man. Other trawlers
were seriously damaged by shots, the Mino having 16 shots
in the hull.     Intense indignation prevails all over   England.
Raised to Tens
Winnipeg, Oct. 26.— Quite a number of "raised" one
dollar United States bills are in circulation in Canada.
Clever 'penmen' are converting them into tens. The
Treasury secret service department says that the counterfeiters are men of ability. The word 'one' and the figure '1'
on both sides of the bill have been changed to read Hen' and
'io.' The substitution can be discovered only by the brownish, halolike appearance of the 'raised' letters and figures.
Coal in New Brunswick.
St. John, N. B., Oct. 26.—Branch railways from
Adamsville to Beersville, a distance of seven and a half
miles and from Beersville to Mount Carlisle mine, two and
a half miles, are now complete. The coal found in the
New Brunswick fields is said to be of excellent quality,
while the boring for oil has been attendant   with   results  of
the most encouraging nature.

Fire  at Marysville
The mill of ihe Laurie Lumber Co.,
at Marysville, was destroyed by fire
early Saturday morning. The fire
started at about 12.20 a. m., it is said,
in the roof of the building but before
anybody was on the ground the flames
had gained such headway that it was
out of the question to do anything In
the way of saving the building or machinery, all of which is a total loss.
.Some jinall amount of lumbe%pMm8
burned but only that which was close
to the mill. No further damage is
anticipated, though the manager of the
Sullivan smelter has a crew at work on
a large pile of sawdust which is still
smoldering. The loss is estimated at
$5,000. There is said to be $2,500
