Good Work Being Done at
the Big Mines.    •
;Are Putting in a 200 Ton Cyanide
.Fairview, B.C., Oct. 20—Work on
-the big building for the 200-ton cyanide
plant of the New Fairview Corporation,
Ltd., is progressing rapidly. Dnring
the erection Superintendent Charles
Ostenberg hag a force,   building the
. tanks, as the company has .adequate
facilities to manufacture its own lumber, thus avoiding the excessive expense and frieght charge and effecting
* a saving of fully SO per cent in cost.
Meanwhile   there   have   been   stored
. redayj for treatment sufficient tailings,
the value of which, when they are
treated, ■ will;fully pay for the cost, of
the new plant.' From the results of the
present experimentalcyaniding plant
*:■ it. has been demonstrated that the
whole of the tailings, after leaving the
the tables where the high grade sul-
phrets are extracted, can bs run direct
into the tanks and treated at a very low
cost, which should increase the profits
on the Stemwinder ore considerably..
In fact, the management has every
reason to believe that 'the plant will
establish a new record on cyaniding by
saving 88 per cent of the values in the
_At the.mine.the ons,,JbQdy,M.the_3QO,
"foot levei is being further exploited
by a winze following the footwall side
of the vein. The policy of the management is to develop, as rapidly as
possible, the ore resources, of the  dif-
' fereflt levels, so-by the'timeeverything
is ready to put in operation at the 46
stamp mill and cyaniding plant, there
will be an abundance of ore for crushing. There are now over 6000 tons of
broken ore on the stopes. At present
. one drill is more than sufficient to keep
14 stamps running.
With regard to the values it is satisfactory to note that the greater the
- depth^thV high'erthe"values,~"A""twb
weeks lest, with14stamps, on ore taken
■exclusively from 300 foot level, gave
the following returns: One hundred
and sixty-eight ounces bullion $1630;
5 tons high grade sulphret, value per
ton $211, $1055; 50 tons low grade con-
''centrates, value per ton $18, $900; 600
tons tailings, value per ton $3.70, $2220;
total $5805, giving a val«e of $850 per
ton. In addition to these values,
about 10 per cent was lost .by being
carried off in the slimes, but this will
be saved by the cyauiee plant. A
second run of ore from the same level
of 846. tons and 454 from the second
level, or a total of 1300 tons milled, resulted as follows: One hundred and
thirty-seven- and one half ounces bullion, value $1557.87; 7 tons sulphrets,
value $145 per ton, $1015; 6o tons ■ low
grade sulphrets, value per ton $15.95,
$967.00; 1100 tons tailings, value per
ton $2.80, $3080; total, $6618.87, shewing
an average of $5.07 per ton in addition
to slime losses- In comparison with
the ore milled from the dump, with
values ranging from $2 to 53, being ore
extracted from the two upper levels,
the results are most favorable. With
the.use of larger screen there is no
doubt, say6 the managemeat, that with
the full 46 stamps running, from 150 to
175 tons of ore per day can be treated.
In discussing the experimental tests
of the Stemwinder ore, Superintendent
Charles Ostenberg said: "In our first
mill.test we found that we could not.by
the use of Frue vanners alone, make
concentrates high enough in grade to
net 60 per cent of their value, as the
freight and treatment charges are excessive. Consequently, I constructed
tables which separated the slime from
the sands and classify the concentrates,
taking of "a streak which contains the
galena, carrying a high per centage of
gold aud silver, and bringing the ship
ping product to a value of from $150 to
$900 per ton. The shipping and treatment charges are no more on this
grade of ore than on the lower values;
in fact, we also receive the lead values,
which on the lower grade are not allowed, and now obtain 90 per cent of
the gross value. The lea'd saving
alone pays for the treatment charges.
The second product which we run
over the Frue vanners and saved in the
shape of low grade concentrates was
worth about $15 to $20 per ton, and was
treated by the small cyanide plant with
which we made an extraction of 75 to
85 per cent,"with a perfect percipit-
ation. -We expected to run a considerable portion of the sand over with
this mineral, and have but a small loss
in- tailings. However, we found that
when we treated ore from the third
level, especially, which was of a higher
grade, that fully a third of our values
was being lost, as even the slimes contained values ranging from $2to$4 per
ton. ; '■
After many, tests the management
.concluded that nothing remained but to
erect large cyanide tanks, now in process of construction, and treat the
whole product of the mill, as with our
present small plant we have demonstrated that the whole of the tailings,
after-leaving the tables where the high
grade sulphrets are extracted, can be
run direbt into these tanks and be
treated at a very low cost, with consequent handsome profits. I expect that
the large plant will be finished about,
the first of next year, and meanwhile
only enough stamps are being opera ted
to crush the ore taken out in development,

The Big Hotel Completely Consumed by Fire, School
Teacher Burned to Death and Several Fatally Injured—Guests had to Jump for Their Lives.
Manager of Hotel Among the Victims.
Word was received here from Fair-
view via Camp McKinney Wednesday
stating. that the Fairview Hotel was
destroyed by fire at an early hour that
morning. One person is dead, two
fatally injured, and several others
more, or less seriously hurt, also that
the local supply of remedies was exhausted, and appealing for surgical
and nursing assistance. It was stated
that a similar appeal had been sent via
Penticton to Vernon. As Camp McKinney, which is the nearest telegraph
or telephone station, is nearly thirty
miles east from Fairview, arid Penticton a similar distance north, whilst
Vernon is eighty or ninety miles further north, there must necessarily be a
long delay before help can be given.-
However, as soon as possible after
receipt of the message, Dr. Schon and
Nurse Flesher left Greenwood to drive
nearly seventy miles to Fairview, taking with them all necessary supplies.
The information received was mea-
gre-^and with nearly thirty miles between the end of telephone line at
Camp McKinney, it was difficult to
obtain particulars. News received is
to the effect that a lady teacher of the
Fairview public school is missing, and
it is believed she perished in the
flames ; Mr. Mathias, manager of the
hotel,; and an. engineer whose name is
not given, are both fatally injured ;
Mrs; Mathias -was'seriously hurt, and
Dr.  White and John Love, druggist,
It was stated that one woman had her
leg broken ; it is supposed' that this,
was Mrs. Mathias.
The fire started in basement of building, which is a three storey frame
structure having 28 bedrooms and
other necessary accommodation. It is
well built and furnished, with dimensions 60 feet by 60 feet. The building
had a wide main staircase leading from
ground floor to third storey, also back
staircase, and it is supposed that these
stairways formed stairways for the
flames, thus cutting off all escape except by jumping from upstair windows
for those ~who~at~ the early hour of
three o'clock would be asleep in their
beds. Dr. Foster, of Greenwood, who
is a close personal friend of Dr. White,
thinks the latter cannot be seriously
hurt, as he sent the message to Camp
McKinney, and had he been much
injured would doubtless have let him
(Dr. Foster) know.
From inquiries made since the foregoing was written it has been ascertained that the school teacher at Fair-
view waB Miss Smith, who comes from
Armstrong, a farming district in the
upper part of Okanagan valley, north
of Vernon. The engineer mentioned
is not likely to be Chas. Ostenberg,
superintendent of the New Fairview
Company's Stemwindes mine, since
his home is near the mine, a mile or so
from the hotel. The whole of the New
Fairview Company's properties.inc'ud-
ing townsite, hotel, mines, and big
group of mineral claims, stamp mill
with forty-six stamps, etc., are under
offer to an English company, who will
likely buy if mines stand expert examination, so it is considered improbable
that the cause of fire was anything but
accidental. As there was no water
supply, and the hotel is situated in a
breezy gulch, destruction must have
been rapid. Particulars of insurance
are not yet obtainable, but Mr. Naden,
agent of insurance companies represented by Ceperley, Rounsefell & Co.,
Limited, Vancouver, B. C, thinks it
likely one of their companies, probably
Phoenix Assurance Company, of London, England, will be heavy loser.
The hotel was built and well furnished
by the original Fairview Corporation,
which last year transferred all its
properties to the New Fairview Corporation. When the company last
issued a balance sheet, hotel and furniture was shown as an asset valued at
twenty thousand dollars, besides which
the stock and permanent improvements
represented fourteen hundred dollars
Camp McKinney, Oct. 24 (Special to
the Times)—Later news from Fairview
not only confirms the reports of sad
fatalities attending the destruction of
the Fairview hotel by fire, but also
shows that the actual state of affairs is
even worse than first reported. Miss
Smith, Ihe school teacher, perished in
the flames ; Mr. Mathias, manager of
the hotel, died from his injuries ; an
engineer named Allan or Allan Stewart jumped from the third storey, injured his spine and cannot recover ;
the housekeeper, Miss Lizzie Hunt, is
seriously injured from jumping'out of
the burning building, and two others
were injured.
The fire originated in the office of
the hotel about three o'clock in the
morning. Mr. ■■ Mathias heard the
crackling of the flames and went down.
He tried to extinguish the flames, and
was badly burned. Failing in this, he
ran back upstairs to get. his wife and
child, but she had jumped from the
window and escaped injuries. Poor
Mathias was again caught in the
flames, and before he could be rescued
was fearfully burned. He never regained consciousness and died Wednesday evening. Miss Smith, school
teacher, had a room on the second
storey. Whether she heard the . crackling of Ithterflames- or-not-wiil-never-be
known. She was not seen during the
fire, and portions of her remains were
found in the ruins.
? Lizzie Hunt, the housekeeper, cannot
recover. She is badly burned, and in
jumping broke her thigh and was
otherwise injured. The last news
from Fairview stated that she was
still unconscious and was being cared
for at the government oflice.
The engineer whose name cannot be
learned is also fatally injured. There
were 14 people in the building at the
time and all were more or less injured
or burned. _.......!       ^-.l,,-.-*-^*-*—*.—
Dr. Schon and Nurse Flesher, who
left here on Wednesday noon, arrived
in Fairview at 1.30 Thursday morning.
They changed horses at Camp McKinney, and lost no time in getting to the
scene. Dr. Morris of Vernon reached
thereon Wednesday evening, coming
down to Penticton on Wednesday's
steamer. Henry Main, druggist, of
Camp McKinney, is also at Fairview,
rendering all assistance possible, as
John Love, the Fairview druggist, is
among those seriously injured.
A man named William Kennaugh
died last evening at the head of-Providence creek, where he had been living
with his daughter and son-in-law, Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Whitwell. Finding
that the old man was not about yesterday morning as usual, Mr. Whitwell
went to his room and there found him
lying unconscious on the floor. He
had lighted his lamp and commenced
to dress when, evidently, he was suddenly seized with illness. He was
well enough the night before, and his
sudden death was unexpected. He was
72 years of age, a native of the Isle of
Man, and came to British Columbia
last year from New Zealand. Dr.
Boucher certified that the cause of
death was cerebral hemorrhage. The
body was carr'r ' on a stretcher two
miles out to the <?hoenix road, and
brought thence o G- -jnwood. The
burial will take pi a.. ** ylay morning at 10 o'clock. . »,,
Owners will Erect a  Mill
Near Hedley City.
Karl Nelson Goes There to Run an
Karl Nelson the well known hotel man
left this week for Hedley City where he
has purchased and 'will conduct ahot.l.
Hedley City is growing as a result of
the big undertaking of the owners
of the Nickel plate mine. The owners
are the Marcus Daly estate and associates. The property has been developed to such an extent that a.mill is to
be erected at Hedlay City to treat the
ore. J. A. Munson has secured the
contract for the construction of a tramway between the mill and the mine and
he has already beguu work. A recent
despatch from Hedley City says:.;
While rumours to thut effect have
been in circulation for some time it is
now definately known that the Marcus
Daly estate, of Butte,, owners of the
Nickel plate group of mines in the lower
Similkameen, have placed an order for
a 40 stamp mill, which it is expected
will be in operation some time late this
fall or early this winter. The mill,
which is. now in process of manufacture
a I. Sherbrooke, Quebec, will have a capacity of about 200 tons of ore per. day,
which can readily incresred by the addition of more stamps to the battery.
„,"-A. location;!;or-r-.the-si.te*. for. the mill
has. been selected, near the mouth of
-Twenty Mile creek, which is about five
miles from, the Nickel Plate mines.
The location is Indian Land, adjoining
Hedley City, and negotiations for the
acquiring of the land, which have beer
in progress for some trme, are now
about completed. When installed this
will be the first stamp mill erected in
the Similkameen district, the others
nearest being at Camp McKinney and
at the Stemwinder mine in Camp Fair-
Owing to the conservative policy pur--
Plate mine, little that is definite has
been officially given out in regard to the
property. For the past four years,
however, a force of from 20 to 30 men
has been steadily employed at the mine
and same months ago an air compressor was placed on the property for the
purpose of pushing development at a
faster rate.
The Nickel Plate has the reputation
of being the richest mine in that section, and is the only one that has been
systematically worked for several
years. The ore is said to run high in
copper and fold, large bodies averaging $70 per ton. On the dump are
many thosands of tons of ore awaiting
treatment at the new mill, besides
much ore for smelter treatment. One
indication of the value of the property
is the fact that the owners for the last
two years or more, have been buying
up adjoining mineral claims, until now
they have a large block. Tne Nickel
Plate itself cost the present owners
$60,000 some four years ago, and this
last spring two adjoining claims were
bought for S50.000 cash from parties residing in Phoenix. Other claims were
bought at lower figures'

There have been some serious fires in the interior, but none  which'were attended with such serious  loss of life.. The hotel was one of the  best in the district.

In the larger cities hotels are igeneral-  'ly forced to make provision ] for the  escape of inmates in case of fire, but in  the outlying districts it is too often the  , practice to have absolutely no safe-  gu :rds.

Peace'was brought about  by  - President Roosevelt aud  others   who  "rdid'everything  in their power to end  the   strike.   The strike   produced  at  least one great  man in  the person  of  John.   Mitchell.   It was   possibly the  greatest industrial struggle of history  and'John Michell showed tact, courage  and genius in  his generalship.     No  ordinary man  could guide and control  147,000 miners in Pennsylvania.   Many  of   them  were  uneducated  and came  from foreign lauds. All were desperate  .and   believed   they   were victims   of  gross   injustice.    Mitchell   kept  these  men under control for over five months  and won.    It was no ordinary feat and  no ordinary man could accomplish it.  The man who did all this could  successfully rule  a nation but.what  has  future in store for him?    His work has  been    done on  a   modest  salary   that I  would   scarcely    meet   the    everyday  wants of himself and family.    If his I  fate   Is  that of  a great  many  labor j  leaders,his good work will go unappreciated.    Jealousies,    and  doubts,   envy '  and the ambitions of others will   pos-1  ���ibly combine to relegate him to private  life.

The annual report  which was read and adopted was considered to be very satisfactory. Mr.  Miner, the "President, in an address  to the shareholders, said that the company had considerable to contend with  during the year. The price of copper  was exceedingly low, going down to  11^ from 17 cents. Mr. Miner .further  explained that owing'to the scarcity of  coke, it was found impossible* to operate over two out of the four,furnaces on  the property. In fact,* it was-,only during the mouth of April-that*the' four  furnaces were irj '. operation. Mn  Miner stated that a year dg'9 he had  hoped at this annual meeting to an-  ' nounce a dividend to the shareholders,  but.;'. unforseeri events, already men  tioned had madeihis impossible. The  properties are; all in fine' condition.'  The old boar'd'f'6f directors was re  elacted.

She says that she was married to Ore-  baugh at Princeville, Ore., Julyl2.1891.  Her husband, she says, became acquainted with a woman named Alice at  Greenwood, B. C,'and that he dishonored his marriage viiw.s. The intimacy  between Orebaiij,rh anil the wi-iiian, the  plaintiff avers, continued at Or rue n wood  from September, 1901, to May, 1902,  and that he is now living- with the  woman at Salmon City, Idaho, as man  and wife. Mrs. Orebaiigh asks for divorce and the restoration of her maiden  name of Rose smith.  Orebaiigh was the proprieter of the  O. K. barber shop until last spring  When he left the city.  No Court.  Wednesday supreme court registrar  McMynn received telegraphic instruction a from the attorney-general to notify all grand jurors and all petit juror's,  summoned to attend the court of assize  set for the 57th inst., that, their attendance willnot mow. be required. This  action was tilcen because Mr. McMviin  had in the performance of his official  duty informed the attorney-geuaral  }hat there were not any criminal cases  for this assize and in the only important civil case set down for hearing at  it the counsel concerned had consented  ��� to a postponement. It is an evidence  of the law-abiding disposition of'residents' generally that in a district in  which well on to a thousand men are  employed in mines, smelters, and other  Industrial works, no serious crime has  taken, place since the spring assize.

The withdrawal of a single prop may  bring a building tumbling down, but  "it requires-a"* great deal of labor and  -skill tOibuildit up again.    Dull  times  come so easily, but a revival is often  Slow and difficult.    A combination of  unfortunate  circumstances  succeeded  in bringing dull times to the mining  districts of the interior,  and notwithstanding the   bright   outlook  at   the  mines and smelters   the   revival has  been slow. "' But it has been sure.   Business is better and the outlook brighter.   The   improvement   was   so   slow  !th'atit was almost imperceptible, but  step by step things have been reaching  their normal state.   When the top of  'the. hill is "reached then  things   will  '- i'imove at a^ rapid gait  Right here in Greenwood the outlook  was never brighter.   The success of ���  '" this district must- necessarily depend  upon the operation of mining properties,  and the employment of a large  number of men,   combined   with  the  treatment of the ores right at home.  We have here conditions that obtain in  .scarcely  any' other   mining  district.  Mining, and.its allied industry, smelting, must be carried on in th<> district.  The ores are not hauled out of the district and treated elsewhere ; even the  matte will be treated at   home.   All  that is in the industry will be the por-  . tion of. the district.    The  profits will  ���- -not be divided.    With plenty of mines  '" working there will be plenty of smelters', and these two great industries are  sure to make a district prosperous..  ,i.     . - ���     u.- -        .      t  -A brief review of the situation  will  demonstrate that we have some reason  " "for the faith that is in us":   When  the  ���-"^1"$ C* ���Cop^i*ix-1'Oo'mpiny,'erected=iit8  !-'smelter at Greenwood, its one furnace  ^'yras considered  sufficient to meet the  .'.-then requirements of the mine.    Since  then  another furnace has been added,  and.the-Mother Lode mine itself could  easily furnish sufficient   ore  for two  '- additional furnaces.   The character of  the ore has greatly improved.   In  fact  a' new mine has been opened up at the  Mother Lode.    Recently started glory  -   holes are in a large body of ore, giving  ���much higher values in copper. _ This  - has increased 'the quantity of   matte  . manufactured  by   the   smelter   until  - -today-a carload of matte is shipped  '"- daily tothe converter.   The smelter is  making big money; Two new furaaces  -5 i;;and:a" converter - will be installed at as.  early a date aa possible.   Now all this  i;-{sh<i*wa tlijkt the company is doing- well,:  ;��� and; they deserve to do well; but we  ;   are not-particularly interested in that.  The additional furnaces and a converter1 mean the employment of more men  "'arid the treatment of more ore; and  the treatment of more ore demands the  /''mining of more ore, which will require  the-'employm'ent. of more men.   It-is  men after all that make a town  and  district���not mines.    It is the men that  mines and smelters employ that build  up towns and create business, make  real   estate   valuable,   in   fact   make  everything of a commercial nature valuable.   The more men that are employed, and the more they earn, the bigger  the town to which they are tributary.  Additional furnaces, a  converter,   and  the   doubling  of   the   output   of   the  Mother Lode-mine, will of. themselves  double, the population of Greenwood.  The  men  will live here,  build   their  homes  here,   and will be an important  factor in building up the town.  But the Mother Lode is not all. The  Sunset and its smelter are not standing still.' In fact conditions are such  - that the mine is handicapped by the  capacity of the smelter. Since the  smelter was blown in both the B C.  and the Snowshoe mines have been  . sending down so much ore for treatment that the output of the Sunset  mine had to be limited.   There is only  one good r:medy for such a state of  affairs, and that is to increase the furnaces at the smelter. This will be  done as soon as the manufacturers can  supply the material. Not only is the  smelter handicapped in so far as the  Sunset ore is concerned, but it is losing  good trade in another direction. The  Sunset smelter could get lots of Republic ore���profitable ore to treat and more  profitable for this smelter since its own  mine, the Sunset, has just ���-the right  kind of ore to make a proper blend  with the Republic ore. Republic ores  are searching for a smeller to treat  them, but none of the smelters can  handle them until they get more furnaces. The Greenwood smelters are  treating over 1,000 tons daily now.  Within a year they will easily double,  their capacity.  The mines are now employing more  men. The B. C. mine, which was  closed for over a year, is running full  blast. The Emma is shipping to the  Nelson smelter, the Providence has six  men at work getting out high grade  ore ; other high grade properties will,  shortly be opened up.  These are Greenwood properties. A'  Phoenix the outlook is equally bright,  While the Granby mines have been  handicapped by low water and consequent lack of power at the smelter, this  difficulty will be overcome by introduction of power from Cascade. When  this is done, and the smelter is running at its full capacity, more men  will be employed at the mines, and  business will be better in the dinner  bucket town.  These improvements have had a noticeable effect in the city. Business is  brisker, building is active, and there is  a noticeable improvement all along the  line.  mssssR^^  (r*  (r*  <F<  G=*  Cr<  Cr<  0=*<  CP*  CP<  <f*  Cr*  G=*  (r*  G*"***  CP"*  (r*  -5="*  0=*-*  (r***  (r*  <r*  99  Capital, all paid up, $12,000,000.

One hand and his face are badly burned.  Frank French, manager for Shal-  ford, was badlj' burned. He made an  heroic "attempt to rescue Miss Louise  Smith, the school teacher.' lie was  awakened by the crackling of the  flames, he thinks, about 2.30 o'clock,  as he went to bed at 11 arid read till  one.. He thought someone had started  a fire in the fireplace in the office below. It then sounded like children  playing, and finally he got up to see  what it was. As he opened the door  the flames burst in. He quickly closed  the door, put on his trousers, and rushed into the burning flames to try to  rescue Miss Smith. He burst open her  bedroom door and dragged her from  the bed. He took her to a portion of  the hall where there were no flames  and told her to remain there until he  could break the window in his own  room, so both could jump to the ground  and safety. He returned to his room',  succeeded in breaking the window, and  again ran through the flames for Miss  Smith, but she was gone. By that  time the flames were in all parts of the  hall, and a gust of fire struck French  and knocked him down. He does not  remember how he escaped, but when  he regained consciousness ho was on  the ground. Mr. French deserves the  greatest praise for facing death twice  in his efforts to save the life of the  unfortunate girl.  Miss Smith was a universal favorite,-  and her untimely end has cast a gloom  over the entire community. A good  teacher and a lovable lady, she ingratiated herself in the affections of young  and old alike. She was only eighteen  years of age, and the Fairview was  her first school. Her bereaved parents  live near Enderby.  Mr. Mathias, the manage of the  hotel, got out safely once but returned  for his wife and child. When he got  back to the room they were gone. He  ���.jumped-through-^the���window,, but-the  poor fellow was terribly burned. Every  particle of clothing was burned from  his body, and he lived only five hours  after the fire. Mrs. Mathias injured  herself in jumping, but the child escaped unhurt.  John Love, the druggist, had a trying experience in the charnel house.  His face is badly burned and his right  hand, a portion of which he is likely  to lose. His room was in the third  story, and Miss Lizzie Hunt.the housekeeper, had a room on the same flat.  Mr. Love rescued Miss Hunt, and  as the flames were in all directions  there was nothing to do but get  her through a window aud let her drop  to the ground below. She is very  badly injured, the thigh bone being  broken and her back injured. She is  paralyzed from the hip up and is not  expected to recover. Mr. Love jumped but landtd on soft earth and escaped injuries other than his terrible  burns.  Peter Town ley and Fiank French  had to jump from second story and  both have bad face burns.  Mr Birch, manager of Swinburne's  butcher shop, jumped from third story  and is badly injured. Mr. Allan the  fireman at the Stemwinder miue jumped from third story breaking the  ankle bones. He is also injured internally. Mr. McKink-3' also jumped  from third story and had ankle bone  broken.  The injured are being cared for in  private residences in the town. The  people of Fairview are doing everything for the sufferers.  Yesterday Dr. Morris, corner of  Vernon, held an inquest on the bodies  of Mr. Mathias and Miss Smith Of  the latter only a few charred remains  were found in the ruins. Mr. French  and others gave evidence but nothing  was learned regarding the orgin of the  lire.  years deceased.-had had several long  illnesses from ulceration of the bowels  but each time recovered and returned  to his ranch. Early this year he ap  peared to have been quite cured after  a very bad time in the hospital, and  afterwards did a lot of hard work  through the summer. Last month his  old trouble returned and then typhoid  fever came to aggravate his condition,  from the first his case was regarded  as hopeless and latterly he longed for  death to end his agony. The body  will be interred in the" * Greenwood  cemetry the funeral taking place this  afternoon. Deceased was an Englishman, unmarried, and had a brother  living on the ranch with him.  Death of John Lindsay.  John Lindsay, a rancher well known  in this district for years, died Tuesday  in the Sisters' hospital, Greenwood,  after having been ill 15 days witq ty  phoid fever. Deceased was 31 years of  age, a native of Wentworth county,  Ontario, his home having been near  Hamilton. He came west, about 13  years ago, and to the Rattle Rivey  valley about nine years. At one time  he had charge of the provincial government road repair party in this dis-  rict.
