The worst fire in the history of  this city started early'this morc-  ing, supposedly in the Square  Hotel, which wasvacapt, and had  made such headway before being  noticed that it looked as, if the  lower end of town, wlas doomed.  Two blocks and a ha,l| were completely cleaned out, aud the approximate loss, which can be ascertained at present will reach  nearly $300,000, with '-possibly 25  per cent cf insurance. '���  N. Barnetby, of ^{aloy, who  was sleeping in the Valhalla Hch  tel, was burned to death, his  charred remains being found in  the ruins.  The buildings destroyed were  the Yale Hotel, Alberta Hall,  yalhalla Hotel, Victoria Hotel,  Parry's barber shop, Bribilsky's  barber shop,  Milesl second-hand  - v  store, Waldron's barber shop,  Telephone Exchange, Canadian  Pacific telegraph office, Windsor  Hotel, British American Trust  Co., Eastern Townships Bank,  Downe-y'js cjgar ^stc-re., Province  Hotel, ..Clarendon Hotel,.

''When it was seen how; serious  the fire was, the steam fire en-  girie.-was backed down to the  river, which, along with the big  tank, gave the fire boys plenty of  water.  In several of the hotels tbe  guests barely escaped with but a  few clothes on, and in some cases  people made a dash for the street  nearly naTced.  The west aide of First street  was threatened for some-time.  On account of two of the local  banks being unable to reach their  vaultsrowing"to ^this morning's  fire, Mayor Fripp has proclaimed  today and tomorrow legal holidays.,   ' s    ..    ,  It is stated that'another man is  unaccounted for since the fire.  REMEMBERED  THEIR  FORMER CHIEF  Yesterday afternoon the employees of the Dominkm Copper  Co., at theirrsmelter at Boundary  Falls, made Mr. W. C. Thomas,  the retiring manager, the recipient of a mark of, the esteem in  which they held .him by presenting7 him with a very beautiful  diamond scarf pin. Mr. Thomas  has always been exceedingly popular, not only with the men, but  with his office and executive staff,  and the men didn't want, to see  the man who had done such faithful work as Mr. Thomas has done  with them go away without an  expression of their respect and  kindly feeling; The presentation  was held at 4 o'clock yesterday.  B. M. Renaud, one . of Mr.  Thomas'oldest assistants, being  chosen to make the presentation.  At the same time, the men felt  that they wished also to remember Mrs. Thomas and their gift  to her took the form of a beautiful silver pudding dish. All the  men, 'over sixty in number,having  gathered on the feed floor at the  smelter the following address was  read :  Boundary Falls, B: C,   .  July 9, 1908.  Mr.   W.  6. Thomas,   Boundary  Falls, B. C :  . Dear Sir���We, the employees  of the Dominion Copper Co. at  Boundary Falls, who have worked under your leadership for the  past two years, and si nee you  have decided to leave us. it is our  sincere desire tp prove to you, in  a suitable manner, our regret at  parting with you, and to prove  to you .how deep in sympathy and  high esteem you are held in our  hearts, for the sympathetic manner you have always been ready  to lend an ear to our grievances,  personal or common,-and it has  never proven too great a task for  your ability, to solve the problem  for the good c( all and satisfac  torily to all parties concerned.  But, as circumstances have made  it impossible by the *long shut.,  down, to be as liberal as we would  like to be in offering you something that will speak for itself.ia  expression of our sentiments, we  therefore, resolve to present you  this scarf pin.  We hope that it will be accepted in the same spirit in which it  is given, not for' its intrinsic  value, but as a token of the esteem in which you are field in  our hearts, and it will serve as a  memento, in future days, when  we are all scattered in this broad  land, that still there remains a  soft spot in the hearts of the  Boundary Falls boys, and deep  feeling for the welfare and prosperity of our friend aud leader,  Mr. W. C. Thomas, when Manager of thej>ominioh Copper Co.  Good wishes  to you and your  loved ones.  Mr. Thomas leaves tomorrow  with Mrs. Thomas and their  children for Salt Lake City. They  intend, in going, to go first to  the coast, visiting Vancouver aiid  Victoria, and then on clown Ihe  coast to San Francisco. Mr.  Thomas returns practically to  the position which he had when  he was first sent by Mr. New-  house to reorganize the smelter  jot the Dominion Copper Co. His  will be a sort of a roving commis-  mission, doing special smelter  work on the Newhouse properties, and his headquarters will be  in Salt Lake City, Utah. Speaking of his residence here, Mr.  Thomas stated that though he  had remained a great deal leager  than he had intended when first  coming here, he had made many  cloee friends whom he found it  hard to leave behind, and expressed himself as greatly pleased  with his lifenn British Columbia.  Diamond Drilling at the Lone Star.  At the B. C. Copper Co.'s Lone  Star  and   Washington  property,  exploratory  work  with  the diamond drill is being, carried on in  a more systematic- way and on a  larger scale than has yet been attempted in this company's mines.  Holes are being drilled at regular intervals of 60 feet over the  entire area to be explored,  the  holes being arranged, in such a  manner as to use raises previously  made in place of two.   Fourteen  of these holes have bean completed to date, 'and have blocked  out a larg-e amount of ore.  Two diamond drills are employed in this work at present  the second machine having been  started on June 22. The holes  now being drilled are all started  from the surf ace, and a shaft is  sunk through the soil and gravel  to solid rock in preparation for  each. Much, difficulty has been  experienced in some of the holes  on account of caving ground, the  rock in "the vicinity of *the Lone  Star mine not being as firm as in  the Mother Lode and Granby.  These difficulties are largely being overcome, however, by the  use.of two sizes of casing, within which the drill is operated.  The smaller size of casing fits inside the larger one, thus making  it possible to run the casing to  twice the depth feasable with one  size. '���'..'.'  Power for running the drills is  obtained from the old steam plant,  which, up to the beginning of  diamond drilling,; had not been  in use since the^B. ��. Gopper Co.  took oyer the property; A. crew  of six men is employed in thi3  work, which is the only thing being done at the mine at present.  BOARD OF TRADE.  The monthly meeting of thie  Board of Trade was called for  8:30 Wed. night,   and was thinly  attended, owing to a' conflicting  installation in the Odd Fellows'  lodge and a meeting of the k;of  P.'s.   The secretary reported a  j large amount of correspondence  attended   to.    There  were  440  tickets sold for the Kilties concert, and receipts of $652.75, leaving the Board $126,35.  Expenses  amounting to about $66 had been  incurred,  leaving a net profit of  $60.  The only other matter of more  than routine importance that  arose was the dangerous wagon  road at Boundary Falls. The  C. P. R. had failed to implement  Jtheir promises regarding it* and  the secretary was authorized td"  place the matter before the Do^  minion' Railway Commission im.  mediately, and also to ask. Duncan Ross, M. P.1, to see that something was done to safeguard the l  life and property of the citizens  of the district in this matter.  ���-^l  m  >1  y? tss  10  -m  mm  m  :y.4-:}iM0$i  :B7*mm  "' ""!$%  :*m  iim  ���.'-���'^..SU?*  ill  KICKS.  The smelter of the B. C. Copper Co. this week treated 13,052  tons of ore. distributed as follows: Mother Lode, 9,479 tons;  Oro Denoro, 3,416 tons; others,  157 tons.  Bie Profits for W.K.jr\ h\ t. Co-  Thraugh the Bank of .Montreal, the  We��t Kobtenajr Pofeer -&. J^ighC Company has been offering nr��t mortgage  bonds bearing-6 per cent interest for  $1,200,000; the subscription list closed  on July 2nd. The bonds form part ef  a total authorized issue of ��308,21?, at  which some ��68,000 have already been  sold.. The auditors' 'certificate'shows  that the net profits of the company  and subsidiary companies since 1901,  as the (result of the sale of 4,000 horse  power, which was all that wasrvailable  up to the edd of 1905; have been as follows: 1901, $77,324; 1902, $67,618; 1903,  $55,397; 1904, 73,81lJ 1905, $95,181; 1906  $109,230, and 1907, $148,195.40. The  most interesting- part of the advertise ���  inent offering the bonds for sale is the  announcement that the C. Pi R wUl  probably require power from the W.  K. P. & L. Co This means the electrification of the line from Proctorto  West Robson and up to Rossland, a  scheme which has been discussed for a  long time and which now may be carried out. Incidentally it is stated that  L,. A. Campbell is to leave the service  of the company and take up Mr.  Graves' plans in Spokane, but whether  this ia true or who will succeed.Mr  Campbell -as manager is not announced.  A few weeks ago,   Superintendent *  Coleman, of the C. P. R., stated to The  Times, that the change in the road at  Boundary Falls would be made in time  for the opening of the smelter.   The  necessary appropriation bad been made  for the'work and it was only a niatter  of getting the men at it.   Th^amelter ���=  at Boundary Failo is- now'cer^i-flyf;  doing business and the 'C.7..PVJL&itfy:.l  not undertaken to put into effect its;:  promise. It is stated that they'.are������iiowV-������  attempting to postpone action until the '7  return of Mr. Coleman from the coast.  The road as it  now   is has been, condemned by the grand jury twice; in its  present situation   it  is a menace to  human life, ajid it's up to the citizens  to see that the new road is built before,.  some fatality occur*.': The; C. P: rV  i  has been altogether too slow in satisfying their acknowledged responsibilities in this matter.        ���'Sy^~-'-:~: ������"  , ... _     ~. ���'*'*"'���.;- i' . '   .' ���: ������ "..

D. MacItablarx  ���<uwiia  SD  FKIDAY, jni,V 10,1908  The Toronto Saturday Night  has this to say of the elections.  It may be remembered that this  paper a few weeks ago made a  similar statement about the influence of the Ontario elections:  "The Dominion elections will,  no doubt, be held within a year,  and in view of Mr. Whitney's  success, people are discussing Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's chances in Ontario. At present this province  sends to Ottawa a Conservative  majority of ten.while in the local  house Mr. Whitney has now a  Conservative majority of sixty-  eight. But the sweep made in  the Provincial contest has" little  significance in federal politic?.  The forces line up in quite a different way for the Dominion  elections,. Probably the Con'  servatives will show up considerably better than ten of a majority from Ontario in the nest Parliament, although not enough to  imperil the safety of the Liberal  government. From varions causes  Sir Wilfrid has lost ground in  this province, which, perhaps,  would not have been the case had  he visited Ontario more frequently. No public man has  been able to arouse' more popular  enthusiasm than he, and a few  visits up this way would have  worked wonders." In reference  to Sir Wilfrid's visits and their  value politically, even the Satur-  The Hedley Gazette has worked itself into a fury over the decision of the County Court Judge  in the appeal of David McBride,  of Bridesville, reported, in this  paper two weeks ago. ' The -editor of   this  paper was not in  court during the progress of this  case, but the statement of- the  case as it appeared in this paper  was approved as correct by those  most competent to judge outside  of the judge himself.   The Gazette says the case was not fairly  stated; it does not show in any  particular where this occurs.    At  the. conclusion of the report The  Times, made  the  remark   that  "The decision is. particularly im-.  pertant inasmuch as it will make  it more difficult for injustice to be  done to landholders by M. P. P.'s  disposing of the monies voted for  roads in. ways that shall* react to  their political advantage rather  than to the general good."    This  reflection, which the Gazette is  pleased  to   call   "a lying sentence," can referin the mind of  the Gazette only tp h.  W.  Shat-  ford, the provincial member for  the Similkameen.    Perhaps there  is some justification for  that being the natural inference on the  part of the Gazette, but so far as  The Times is concerned, we-are  quite prepared to leave  it to our  readers to judge whether not the  observation   is   one    that    can  rightly be  made.   It was made  generally,   but   if   the   Gazette  wishes to put the cap on the head  of   Mr.   Shatford,    the   Gazette  should know whether it fits, and  perhaps ihe operation is interesting to his constituents.   In the  last day or two we have  been informed by men  from  the  Similkameen riding that it does fit, but  that we do not know personally.  If. however, Mr. Shatford follows  elsewhere   the   tactics ' used'--.in  placing the Rock Creek bridge,  we fear the observation is very  pertinent to his case.  which history holds, and it is particularly fitting that we, as Cau-  adiaus, should remember the  landing there of the man who  held on there for twenty years  with so great bravery and almost  impossible hope.  But there is another reason why  Canada should remember Quebec.  It was there that the great drama  was played which determiuedCan-  ada's future. Is it not well that  these thingsshould beremembered  by ��atfadians born, arid impressed  on the hew Canadians who are  streaming constantly into bur  wide territories past the ancient  citadel. Many people will echo  the words of the Colonial Secretary, the Earl of Crewe* spoken  recently in London.   They are:  Surely it is a good thing that  as each emigrant arrives at the  gate of. the New World, one of  the most beautiful spots on which  the eye of man has ever rested,  he should be encouraged to bare  his head to the . memory of the  glorious past, even .if it be for  only one hour that he is able to  visit the scene of that great historical encounter.  The pageant that will be opened in a fortnight in Quebec will  be one of the most brilliant celebrations ever held on_ the American continent. The pageant,  which will be a.' feature of it,  will be the first representation of  a complete series of historical  events ever held on this continent. It is gratifying to- Cana-  dians to hear the favorable opinion of critics that among: all the  historical dramas of the past  there is none more cdmplete in all  its details, none more altogether  satisfying, than that 'which was  played in Canada in the middle  of- the eighteenth'century.  OIL LANDS IN  EAST KOOTENAY.  Reserve Raised���Locations Made by  Government Employe.  The" Kootenay Liberal'calls attention to what looks' very much  like more trouble ahead in the  Bast Kootenay coal and oil lands:  IS THIS ABOVE BOARD ?  There is something- doing in  Southeast Kootenay. Just what  it is is not yet quite apparent.  But that it" is something is certain... A glance at the B. C. Gazette, any of- the May issues, will  confirm this statement. At one  time, the whole of the Flathead  section was supposed to be under  coal and oil reserve���particularly  the latter. A short: time ago  notice that the reserve, was about  to be raised.was published in the  Gazette. ��� This meant that -the  land was,to be thrown open for  purchase. Someone noticed this  ���someone   with   a  name  well  i  The Tercentenary celebration  at Quebec in the latter part of  this month, has attracted attention not only throughout the entire length and breadth of Canada, but from end to, end of the  Empire. Quebec holds a story of  great fortitude and wonderful  pertinacity. In its history are  some of the most thrilling scenes  known in Kootenay; and'particularly in Ymir. And that someone at once got' busy. The fact  that he holds a responsible position with the government did not  deter him. As a result we have  a whole grist of applications to  purchase centering around one  name���and that name is weight.  There are Wright's of various  descriptions,   probably 'some   of  them related to the Wright* but  the fact remains .that bhey are  S5?rights and that the moving  spirit is Wright, Seventeen sections in all have been located on  the Flathead, and of these several oyerlap coal and oil areas  already under license.  WHERE IT PINCHES.  This is where the story of the  Southeast Kootenay activity finds  its head. These existing coal  and oil licenses are th* ones over  which there has been so much  trouble due to the government's  bungle in granting several conflicting", licenses for the same  areas.** That tangle has almost  been straightened cut through  lengthy litigation; but the litigating licenses are now threatened with greater evils than, those  from,-which they are escaping.  The raising of the reserve and  the throwing open of the lands to  priyate purchase means a serious  thing for the license holders; it  means that the purchasers can  Hold them up and hamper them  in their operations almost at will.  It means that their holdings will  be so encumbered that they may  become almost worthless to them  and that, rather than continue  the intolerable situation, they  may forfeit the license fees already paid and drop their licenses^ -The purchaser who stakes  over their holdings stands toy?in  6n a double-count; first, by making them disgorge cash in return  for privileges; second, by securing control of the, license for  himself if he can succeed in cold-  shouldering the original holders  out of their possessions.  WRIGHT'S QUICK MOVE.  The remarkable things about  this are twofold: First, that the  government should precipitate a  condition which must inevitably  lead to wholesale trouble and contention; and, second, stat it should  step in at the earliest moment  and take advantage of the raising of^the leserve. It always  looks fishy when one on the inside circle, to whom information  denied'the public is supposed to  be available; makes application  for valuable public concessions at  the firsjt-moment when those concessions become available. The  relation of Mr. Harry Wright,  gold commissioner, to the seven-  teen sections staked for purchase  we do not definitely know; but  we are aware that if one J. Fisher were to divulge the knowledge  he has concerning the transaction  it would provide very interesting  material*. .We have heard a great  many things during the past few  months through Conservative  sources of unfair partiality shown  its friends by the Liberal government at Ottawa; but, after investigation, the majority of the  \ instances cited have been proved  to have been foundationless. In<|  other cases, the offenders have  been punished. Here we have,  right at our own doors, something  which bears on its very face the  marks of peculiar dealings; and  it is the Conservative McBridei  government, not the Liberal  Laurier government, which is.at  fault. Further reference will be  made to this subject in a later  issue.  der. A large number ot men.  have been busy all week blowing  out stumps and otherwise clear-<  ing the property.

At the Calgary Fair, which
closed yesterday, the British Columbia: exhibit proved to be a
very great credit to the province.
It is, of'course,- impossible to do
Absolute justice to the illimitable
and inexhaustible resources of the
province, but as- exhibitions go,
this one seems to be a success.   -
The stand of the British.Co-
y        # w r
lumbia government exhibit faces
the main entrance to the Agricultural Hall, and forms one" of
the most attractive exhibits, with
a/magnificent display of fruits,
fresh and preserved, and museum
specimens of fish and game from
the famous government museum
at Victoria.
The preserved fruits are-shown
in cleat glass jars, floating in
fluid, and include specimens of
apples-;, pears, peaches, grapes,
plums, cherries, • raspberries,
gooseberries"'and other small
fruits,"Tepresentative of the various fruit growing districts of the
province, placed in the upper fair
ground. Below these are splendid
specimens of 'packed 1 rait9, fresh
from provincial orchards and gardens, including strawberries,
cherries, gooseberries and currants. These are shown in commercial packages and put tip for
shipping purpones.
Below these, forming a bell
running round three sides of the
entire stand -are museum specimens of the principal food fishes
which are found in British Co*-
lumbia waters, shown in glass
cases, including a , .magnificent
specimen of the typee salmon,
also cohoe, dog and sockeye salmon, the latter is exhibited in the
egg and„embryo- form, showing
the development and growth of
the young salmon. Other cases.
contain specimens of steelhead.
Kamloops and silver- trout, and
inv sea fishes, black bass, rock
cod, red rock fish and black banded rock.fish.

Ten years ago British Columbia did not grow enough fruit to
supply her own population.
Iu 1902 the fruit shipments aggregated 1,956 tons. -', -
- In 1907.the,fruit shipments aggregated 4,743 tons.  '
These facts - and figures show
how the industry is growing.
""* The* fruit growing "lands- of
British Columbia are of large extent, and include all the great
fertile valleys from the Rocky
Mountains to the Pacific coast,
and ,' from -the International
boundary ,north to Cariboo.
Apples, pears, cherries, "plums
and small fruits grow over the

The principal districts in which
fruit is grown en" a large scale
are: 4ancouver island anu &u**

Some of the favorite sections of
these districts, -in which fruit
growing is firmly established on
a commercial basis, are: Victoria, Vancouver, Salt Spring
and other islands, Lower Fraser
valley, Kamlocps, Lytton, Ashcroft, Spence's Bridge, Knderby,

(Ont), is timely. She says: "'A horrid rash broke out on-my little boy's
body-: The child suffered acutely with
the burning and itching and grew
quite restless. A friend advised mo to
try Zam-Buk. I did so, and was surprised to see how quickly it cleared
away the rash. The very first application seemed to cool and ease the burning and itching, making the child rest
easier. -In several days l.e was com-
pletely cured, not a mark remaining on
the skin to show where the trouble had
been. Zam-Buk is the best healing
balm yet used."

The   many   friends    of   Miss  Stark, who left Greenwood a few  months ago to go to her sister in  North Vancouver,' will regret to  hear of her   misfortune-on  Dominion Day, as reported  in  the  Vancouver papers.    The following is from last Friday's News-  Advertiser:     "Miss    Stark    of  North Vancouver, met with a barf  accident while descending Crown  Mountain on Dominion Day. She  was tbe guest of one of the members   of the   Vancouver Mountaineering Club.    The party went  up to the top of Crown Mountain  and Miss Stark and  two gentlemen,   after  going half way up,  turned   to   desceryi.    Instead   of  sticking to   the   bush near the  edge, Miss Stark came down over  the snow banks, and suddenly slipping, fell down a a distance of 40  feet.    The young  lady struck a  tree stump, which was level with  the surface of the snow,  and a  gash was torn  in  her leg below  the knee.    Her friends hurried to  her assistance and made a sledge  of coats.    By the use of   ropes  Miss Stark was conveyed  to the  bottom   of   the   mountain,   and  then managed to walk, with  assistance,   to   the   camp   of   the  night before.   The trip was necessarily slow, and 7}4 hours were  spent from the time Miss Stark  met with the accident until the  camp was reached.    At it   was  impossible   for - her    to    travel  through  the brush to the Capi-  lano hotel, a tent wa&put up and  she remained there for the night.  Dr. Wilson, of Vancouver,  went  out yesterday morning, and after  attending, to   Miss   Stark's   in-  The Sally shipped a car of ore  this week to the Trail smelter.  Rev. F. V. Venables will conduct service at Eholt on Sunday  afternoon next at 3:30 p. m.  The B. C. Copper Co. today is  paying out $46,000 in wages.  This is tbe first normal pay day  ,siuce last November.

Greenwood gave the Kilties a  game of ball on Monday afternoon. The Kilts traveled along  hitting a yery good pace until the-  last inning, -when Greenwood, unfortunately for the bandsmen, hit  their pitcher at will, and scored  just ten runs.. From the way  they did it, it looked as if they  could have done it earlier had  they wished.  D. T. Phillips,, a skip-tender at  the Mother Lode yesterday morning had his arm broken; He had  signalled for the skip and afterwards put his arm through the  shafting.

Borton, both of  Goldfields, Nevada. They intend  leaving tomorrow for the West  Fork, where Mr. Sword has an  interest-in tne* Bell mine.

Reward given  Owing to a-regrettable mix-up,  which was certainly no fault of  the Celebration committee, the  railway agents charged higher  prices for transportation on the  excursion trains to Greenwood  thah those advertised. ��� The company had offered the committee  two sets of rates; taking the maximum, the one charged, the difference between it, and the minir  mum reverted to the committee.  The committee clearly instructed  the railway authorities at Nelson  to charge only the minimum rate,  the same as they 'advertised, giving the public the advantage.  That this was not done, they  were as greatly surprised to learn  as was anyone else. The mistake  is clearly the fault of the department of the railway holding the  excursion.

The particulars of Taylor's very painful  accident at the Mother Lode,  having his arm completely torn  out at tbe shoulder, will still be  very clearly in the public mind.  After an astonishingly brave and  successful fight for life, through'  which the deceased came with his  immediate injuries well cared for  and in as good condition as they  could under the circumstances be,  an affection of the brain set in  resulting in 'meningitis, which  took his life in two days. The"  funeral; was held on Tuesday  afternoon, work at the Mother  Lode being practically suspended  to allow the comrades of the deceased to.attend. The pall bearers were: ,J. F. Smith, W.
