After a blast  fired in Stope A-4 on the 60-foot  level, to." break through from  there into the glory hole, Mr.  Dimrnick on goingfto his- home  found that a rock weighing perhaps 35 pounds and another smal.  ler one had crashed through the  roof, that Mrs. Dimrnick had been  seriously injured, both her legs--  being broken and that the child  was so injured that she' was not  able to, recover from the shock  and died at 8.30 that eveniri^;  Mrs. O'Hanley, a neighbor took  the child "at the time Mrs. Dimrnick was removed to the Sister's  Hospital where today she was  doing as well as possible under  the conditions. ;  A coroner's jury was found that  evening-and visited the scene of  the accident. On Tuesday morn-  at 10 a.m. a hearing was given  the witnesses in the Court House,  Greenwood. V  -v There was no question as to  liow- the fatality occurred. The  evidence given then was directed  to finding who ^ was culpable.  M. Edgren, foreman- of the mine  stated: that whistles were blown  longer than usua.1 and more than  ordinary precauTions taken.' "fhe  shift boss was also ordered to  warn the people in the town., The  house through which the rock  we_t was 900 feet away. The  blast was a particularly dangerous one. and this is tbe first time  special instructions were given  this year, ;  Charles Gollyer, shift boss, said  there were 22 holes. He had  warned Mr. Dimrnick but not the  people in ti ,e houses. Powder of  40 per'cent grade was used instead  of SO per cent.  Dr. J. _}. Spankie gave evidence  as to injuries and cause of death.  The leg was fractured at the ankle in two places and there were  several flesh wounds. Death occurred at 8.30 p.m.  Neighbors, Mrs. O'Hanley and  Mrs. Mezzen said that they knew  of the block houses but that they  were not generally used. Both  told of finding the mother and  child-.  David Johnson stated that the  bjast put in was lighter than usual. He set the fuse as soon as  the whistle man came back and  signalled him to do so. His instructions were to load lightly.  Joseph Hyde, whistleman, had  blown the whistle longer than usual and also an estra whistle  alongside of the block house  which hp never had blown before.  The father of the deceased child  was called and gave very full evidence. On the way from his home  to the cookhouse, the shift boss  called to him of the danger.  From the cook house he watched  the blast and then returned to.his  home. The neighbors came and  others; Dr. Gibbs had given attention until Dr. Spankie had  come. He had been away from  them only 5 or 7 minutes. He  did not consider the tunnels safe  as a place of refuge and did not  know of the blockhouses. He "had  not known the blast to be a specially dangerous one. He would  expect special warning if a very  heavy blast were being put in,  giving him time to movehis family. In this caBe there was not  time after the warning.  Superintendent Mcintosh gave  evidence of the size of the board,  and exhibited a copy of its contents. Time between whistle and  blast was 5 mins. Nearly everyone huu disregarded whistles.  The Coroner's jury was compos  ed as follows: D. O. McKay (foreman), C. J. Wilson, W. G. Kennedy, F. C. Buckless; J. N. Paton  and Howard Moore. The jury  retired at 5.30 p��m. and its verdict which is: given below, was  returned at 7-iOin.-the evening.  The jury find that Eunice Dimrnick met her death on August 17,  1908, at 8.40 p.m. at thye residence  of hef father, J. H. Dimrnick, at  the Mother Lode mine, caused by  shock attending injuries received  by being struck with a rock  thrown by-blasting- operations at  the Glory Hole of the Mother  Lode Mine.  We advise that in future greater precautions should be taken  when blasting particularly dangerous bo'es as in this instance  ,   UNFAIR NEWS SERVICE  If any further illustration were  needed of the ridiculously partisan-daily   news   service   British  Columbia is.getting, it was* furnished this week -ad nauseam id  the   reports   of   the elections in  Saskatchewan.        On   Saturday  night in Regina" it   was known  th at the Scott   Govern ment was  sustained by a'majority increased  froni.9 to I2,i;j3n   Tuesday   the  Nelson Daily News put' it on its  inside page at which   few of   its  readers ever lookj under the heading *'Government,'majority will  be about zero," a despatch  from  Regina dated Monday giving the  Government   a majority  of   12,  larger,    as    has;" been     stated  than the government had before.  ' The adding of new seats as the  Scott Government did seldom tells  heavily in favorVof a government  and that has not So great an effect  on their majority as   one   might  think.    In considering  the  election in Saskatchewan, it must also be. remembered that the Haul-  ���tain'p'a'rty ran hot as ��� Cbttserva-  tives but as Provincial Rightefs,  appealing to the people on a popular issue but one which is most  easily turned to national   disadvantage.   It is the cry of sectionalism.  The result in Saskatchewan as  it is coming to be known cannot  be otherwise than exceedingly  gratifying to every supporter, of  the Liberal government at Ottawa as well as to the friends of  Premier Scott himself.  CORRESPONDENCE.  Keffer and Mrs. Keffer were  visitors in camp Monday.  James McCreath took a spin into camp on Wednesday in his new  automobile much to the excitement of Denoroites, it being the  first machine of its kind seen here  Mr. Gadron, brother of Mrs. J.  V. Augrignon is visiting his sister. Mr: Gadron was running a  hotel in Fernie at the outbreak of  the fire and was burned out.  Tuesday was the first time he bad  seen his sister for ten years.  Evangeline Phillips and  Viola  Pierce spent the week' end   with  Miss F. Scott at the ranch.  ' Mail is now sent daily between  Denoro and Phoenix. This is a  new service granted by the'department since Aug 1st.  Denoro mioe continues to ship  15 and lb cars of ,ore daily.  Supt. P. W. Lover, of Denoro  mine is selling all his- stock of  thoroughbred chickens. Mr. Lover contemplates moving his family down from' the B.C. mine in  the near future.  Great excitement prevailed in  Denoro yesterday at the rumor  that the hold-tip men had been  seen in the vicinity in the morning. Everyone is prepared for  ���hem now and if they visi�� Denoro, they will get a warm reception. V     .���''.'  J. W. Morrison visited Denoro  last Friday to wish his old friends  good-bye. One and all wish him  every success in his college career  in the East. ' ;  X A. McLeod, ot the Lone Star  was a visitor in camp Sunday aud  Monday. ���'���'"'  Mrs. Nordberg, >f Eholt, was  the guesfHtMrsT" A% "Gusta'sb'n' on  Sunday last, -  SOON TO* COME DOWN  The thugs who have been appearing at intervals lately in.Anaconda and Phoenix undertook  the bold deed of visiting the home  town of Prcv. Constable Aston on  Monday night. The men recon-  noitered the situation from the  bridge, returned to the darkness,  masked and smocked themselves  and started for the hostelry of C.  L. Thdmet. Mr. Thomet had seen  the suspicions characters, locked  his doors and prepared himself  with his six-shooter. The brigands not finding an easy entrance  made no trouble and slinked away  across the flat, folio we'd by Thomet who arrived at Salter's hotel  just as one of the sharpshooters  put an end to the existence of  Host Crowell's dogs. They followed the same tactics as at Anaconda, collecting their prey in  the one room, and facing Host  Crowell against the bar mirror in  which he was privileged to view  the cast of the clothes and neck  of his assailants went through  his pockets, taking $65..  On leaving the hotel, the men  went towards the C.P.R. tracks  firing at some C.P.R. men whom  they took to be a relief force.  Yesterday they were reported at  Eholt and Denoro but the police  have a number of clues which  they are following. As they and  the country are thoroughly aroused over the beries of incidents it  is thought that the men cannot  long escape capture.  All Not Less Than Their Due* ,  J. McRae,-who returned from  Fernie to Phoenix oh Wednesday  in company with Charlie Hunter,  arrived here yesterday. In Fernie, tbe lines are being drawn  closer still and now. no outsider  is allowed to erect a temporary  structure within the fire limits,  thus practically shutting out all  who were not in Fernie before the  fire. Very few women and child;  reu are left in Fernie, and the  building is being confined pretty  well to the business districts  where from three to four hundred  carpenters are busily .engaged  erecting temporary structures.  The Trites-Wood Co. are putting  up the largest building, a two-  storey frame structure 60x20.  Mr. McRae says no adequate idea  of the destruction can be had except, by seeing it and thinks that  the Fernie people who braved the  disaster have everything possible  coming to them. .  Fire and water were the alarming topics of d scussion at Monday's Council meeting and a full  council lent it * energies to devise  proper means of precaution  against the presence of one and  the absence of the  other.  The Fire Chief was instructed  ta enforce By-Law No. 127 which  gives him power to demolish all  buildings which might reasonably  be termed fire traps and with  Chief Dinsmore.he was instructed  to make a thorough inspection of  all buildings in the town in respect of danger from fire and see  that the by-law is enforced. The  Fire Chief's letter containing a  number of suggestions along this  line was received and filed.  To the Fire and   Light   Committee was referred the letter of  the Fire Chief containing a   proposal for insuring the members of  the    voluntary ���  Fire     Brigade  against disablement in   the   performance of their duties.    A letter was read from F. W. McLaine  representing the Ocean Accident  Co. giving rates for   this   insurance.    The Committee   will   report at next meeting.  The Chief of Police was instruct-  ed to find out how, many   people  were using water on their   lawns  and a notice- is being sent  to   all  users of water that   the water is  to be used for hose sprinkling only from 7 to 7.30 o'clock   in . the  morning and the   same   time   in  the evening.  The B.C. Times was allowed  $10 as the* city's share in changing connections of water service  pipe trom the Lynn Creek to the  Twin Creek main.  Mr. Frederick Keffer addressed  the Council with respect to the  approaching visit of the engineers, taking advantage of the excursion of the Canadian' Mining  I_s titu^te^-,'^tK'_*^  ing of the .Mayor and Aldermen  Gulley and Wilson was appointed  to make arrangements for their  entertainment. Aid. Fleming  was heartily in favor of one of  Greenwood's famous smokers and  abhorred a stiff-shirted banquet.  7'he sidewalks to the hospital  are to be widened by two planks.  C. J. Wilson was reimbursed to  the extent of $6 for money spent  on streets.  The City Plumber is to notify  the City Hall on every occasion"  before turning off the water. If  your water is turned off, fire in  your enquiry to Mr. Taylor's good  nature.  The Mayor reported that the  Phoenix Waterworks Co. had offered to pay one half the cost of  repairing the damage done to  Providence Creek main through  washout from Marshall Lake.  Tbe offer had been refused..  Following accounts were ordered  paid: Vulcan Iron WorkB, $2.00;  White Bros., 50 c: J. W. Nelson,  $5.35: Greenwood City Waterworks, 8128.80; Greenwood Steam  laundry, S3.90.  MANY MEN  FIGHTING FIRES  Fires Everywhere On Hills  None Yet in Places of  Great Danger  A fire was found in* the old  Poay Stables on Monday evening  about 7 o'clock. The origin is  mysterious and is suspicious especially as it was synonmous with  a serious leakage in the water  main iu the neighborhood.

At a representative meeting of  the citizens of Eholt held on Tuesday night to discuss-the reports in  circulation throughout the couutry, and conditions of the present  strike situation, the following resolution was carried unanimously:  Whereas,certain reports aTe in circulation alleging acts of violence  on the part of striking employees  of the C.P.R. at Eholt, resolved,  that we, the   citizens   of   Eholt  deplore the acts of   violence   reported to have   been  committed  by certain employees, and we wish  to place ourselves on   record   as  being entirely opposed to any such  acts or to the destruction of   property and so far-as we have been  able to find   out   there   are   no  grounds for such a  statement, as  we belieye the striking employees  to be strictly law abiding citizens.  The C. P. R. is said to have 20  men working in the shops at Eholt  and a posse of constables on guard  watching the arrival  of the trains.  297       3,741     20,800  Snowshoe  B.C. Copper Co....

W. McLaine, of the C.P.R. Lands  Department aud the C.P.R., the  Provincial Government and other  persons Having properties in the  affected districts are making herculean efforts to curtail the  loss  of   timber  involved.    At   Dead-  man's Gulch, and from there on  to Oro Denore, there   are   about  25 men fire fighting. The C.P.R.  have six men under Jack Keve,  the B.C. Copper have   four men  and all of Road Foreman   Wilm-  hurst's gang has been pressed into service,    At Bull Creek on the  West   Fork,   Dave   Good   has a  bunch ot men, and   Elmore   Collier has another lot on the   west  side   of  the'  river   from    Deep  Creek and is also looking after a  fire near the   Sally   mine.   Fire  Ranger Millroy came in on Wednesday from   Cascade and   took  several men yesterday out to the.  fire at Kerr Creek above Boundary  Falls,   From   there  he goes to  Camp   McKinney  to    supervise  fighting a fire between Camp McKinney and Old Baldy   and  one  above Inkamp Creek near   Okanagan Lake.   Charles  Mix,   provincial warden,, is   in  charge of  two fires in Franklin Camp on the  north fork of' the   Kettle   river.  C.P.R. section men are in charge  of three fires between  Fife   and  Robeoa and ca -^ ^vernmeja^ fire,  warden'is coralling  another  on  the east side of Arrow Lake opposite Shields.   The Great Northern is also fighting   a   big fire  between   Rossland    and    Sheep  Creek.  Every precaution is being  taken, however, and although  a  big loss of timber will be entailed,  there is no likelihood of any serious disaster or loss of life.    The  Government has already undertaken the prosecution of a number  of parties for carelessness resul t-,  ing in fires and the   C.P.R.    also  intends to take similiar measures  to protect its property.  ���;.''i;l  m  '>-,*������*.�����-'���.���*.��  m  ;.--.;:'���'i,,_*J5|  yy<m  ,.. yuy.c((  ���-:-:f.i**'.f  ���'��� ���������&�������  yy^M  yymt  ::-.t-S5Sa  ������x'^f-M  ������iitt  '���'���:��� 'V*f*H  m  -*,:- ^"i^T  a1  '������f'iJ.Stgj  \ --'.'.' >,;"'i'-'i. 1  "���'S#��f|  -��<Jfef  !

FRIDAY.   AUGUST 21,1908  OF LIBERAL MINISTERS  The despatches in the Coast  papers of Friday last contain the  information that Mr. Clifford Sifton will take complete charge ot  the Liberal campaigh in the  West. Mr. Sifton has always  been a man of wonderful mental  powers and his speeches on the  floor of parliament have always  %set a standard much above the usual in political deliverances. The  problems of government always  loom large in his mind and his  vigorous and constructive handling of them is known to every  Canadian. It is one of the peculiarities of the Ministers of the  Laurier Government that they  have held the esteem of unsparing critics. Mr. Sifton has no  greater admirer in Canada today  than J. S. Willison, of the Toronto News, and Mr. Willison  himself is a hammerer without  equal when the governmentof the  day is on the anvil. Recently  another conservative paper, the  Toronto World has burst into elo-  . queuce over the qualities of Mr.  Sifton.    Its eulogy is as follows:  "If there be truth'in the rumor  that Mr. Sifton is once more to  accept a position in the Cabinet,  a new light will be cast upon his  career. He has suffered the  penalty of every man of construc  tive imagination. Twelve years  ago he outlined plans for the future of Canada, which are now being appreciated and becoming intelligible. Being misunderstood  he was at that time criticized for  what has proved +6 be his foresight.^ On the floor of the House  Mr Sif ton's utterances have always  commanded respect, because of  their conciseness and pith. It can  never be said of him that he is one  who "sucer s fools gladly." Asa  man of business capacity in the  large sphere of government he has  shown himself alert, adroit, and  competent. He is a man worth  having in the service of his country."  Along with this and in view" of  the carping criticism that lesser  meaner minds sometimes give out  regarding the Liberal ministers,  it may be interesting lo place the  following remarks from an editorial-of the Toronto News. They  refer, it will be seen tothe younger members of the Cabinet���the  men who along with their incomparable leader in the tuture will  guide the destinies of the Liberal  party and of the government of  Canada :  "Nothing can rob Sir Wilfrid  Laurier of his great personal distinction. No one denies his  strength of character aud capa**  city for affairs. It would be childish to pursue the Prime Minister  with the sort of criticism with  which Sir John Macdonald was  assailed for a generation. Mr.  Graham is proving himself to be  a good departmental'head, and  has already made his position "in  parliament secure. Mr. Lemieux  shows an increasing capacity for  public business. Mr. Fisher is an  efficient Minister of Agriculture,  and he has gained credit by his  handling of the Civil Service Bill  and his attitude towards,the Archives Department. Mr., Aylesworth has power as a debater,  industry in his department, and  a ��� sound comprehension of the  powers, privileges and limitations  of Parliament, but a certain cur-  ious subservience to party affects  his influence with the independent  elements of the country."  Fruit Industry  A Cherry Producio. Country.  The August number df "Better  Fruit" says:  "The Northwest stands out  prominently as the cherry producing country of the world, on account of excellency of thecherries  grown in the Northwest   and on  ���  account of their splendid shipping  qualities. The trees bear prolifii-  cally. The care and culture of  the cherry is the simplest of all  varieties of fruit, as the cherry is  practically free from all the diseases that cause so much trouble  in other varieties of fruit.. Spraying, so far, has being unnecessary.  The tree requirespittle pruning  and in many districts does exceedingly well without any cultvatioh,  consequently growing cherries for  market is the simplest kind of  fruit business."  Mann by saying he pitied him  when the latter sr^idhe came'from  a country that did not require irrigation.  He stated emphaticallyy as did  several others speakers, that the  value of the land was entirely in  the water.  Speaking of the relative position* of mountain and fruit lands,  Professor Carpenter said he  thought that four or five acres of  watershed would be a fair estimate ot the extent of land needed  to collect water sufficient to irrigate one acre of fruit land.

Like most people he had had the  idea that we, this side of the line,  lived in a kind of   arctic climate,  with bears, wolves, and the like,  prowling over "Our Lady of the  Snows," but his visit to the lovely Sunny Okanagan   once   and  for all   dispelled  his   erroneous  ideas, and he was   now   inclined  to believe it' quite possible   that,  as a Boston divine once maintained, the Garden of Eden would be  found situated at the North Pole.  He had heard one or two   say  we did not get enough rain here,  but he wanted to say that we had  just a perfect fruit climate ; there  was the heat for the   ripening of  the fruit   to   perfection, the soil  was all that could be desired, and  with a thorough system of   irrigation   the   Okanagan    Valley  would   have   or has   got, as the  case may be, ideal conditions for  the production of ideal fruit.   He  need scarcely mention   the   markets, for it is well known that the  Northwestern Provinces can take  all the fruit, and lots more   too,  QOQi004^>*>*i90000000*��09909^00i  H.

Then why does not  everybody fake Cod Liver Oil and  Iron ? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form.

TheAmesian magic lantern as a  means of conveying political  falsehoods is among the modern  developments of the art referred  to as it is practised in this coun-  - try in this year of grace. But  the most shameless palming off of  party misrepresentations in the  guise of truths uttered for the  public*weal is that which is practised (in the dissemination of "such  statements, as the f olio win g,  which is here reproduced from a  decent editorial in the Ottawa  Evening Journal, professing to  discuss the record of the present  Dominion Government:  , "The land, instead pf going  direct to the settlor, has passed _rst through the hands  of the middlemen, friends  of the Government, some of them  now even members of Parliament  and supporting the Government,  - '     *     ' - ' ' *  meti who buy for a song* and sell  or hold for hundreds of thousands.  Landsy coal areas, timber leases,  grazing leases, irrigation privileges, the public domain in the  west in all its concrete forms, passes into the hands of a few groups  of men, alienated forever at prices  ridiculously incommensurate with  its real value and the man who  is to meet the- enhanced cost  w_ ich the speculators are to exact is the settler whose interest  the Liberal leaders in 1893 pledged themselves to protect."  This is truly a sweeping indictment. It amounts, if the-words  bear their conventional meaning,  to this, that it is and has been the  fixed policy of the Government to  make it impossible for the actual  settler to get access to the land  without first dealing with a middleman. But. will the statement  stand examination? Lands, coal  areas, timber leases, grazing leases, irrigation privileges,, in a  word, ' the public domain in the  West in all its concrete form;"  is pictured as "alienated forever,"  at the expense of the settler.  ��  f fife BouMi&my*  MM����*0 \Pk$��t'  -  The   arable  land   of   Western  Canada is divided into  odd-numbered and even-numbered sections.  The ndd-ntimhprerl ���**.pr*tini*-*i   have  until thepresent time been reser.  ved from   settlement   by ' home-  steading.   What for ? They were  set aside by the Conservative Government which was in  power at  Ottawa from 1878   to   1896,'as a  reserve from   which the railway  land grants made so lavishly by  that Government were to be   selected.   When" the   Liberal Government took office in   1896,   the  odd-numbered sections were thus  tied up.,    Comparatively   little  progress   had  been   made in the  selection   of  the   millions upon  millions ot acres of railway grants  The first thing done by the   Liberal Government was to stop  the  policy of granting lands to railways.   Not an acre of,������ land has  been granted by the Liberal Government to any railway.   But the  grants already authorized by the  legislation of   the   Conservative  regime   have   been   satisfied, as  they had to be unless Canada .was  prepared to repudiate obligations  which it had voluntarily assumed.  U,ntil these grants were satisfied,  the odd-numbered sections had to  remain tied up.    To the work  of  hastening the , selection   by   the  grantees theL-iberal Government,  upon taking office,  addressed itself.    It   was  necessarily  slow  work as there were many millions  of acres to be selected,   and   the  grantees did not find it   in   their  interest to hasten unduly in making their choice ; as the'-longer  they    could ' postpone   making  the selection the longer would be  the extension of their period of  exemption from  provincial   and  municipal taxation.    That work  was at last   completed : and   its  completion meant   the reversion  to the Government of Canada   of  some 30,000,000 acres, of which  probablyj20,000,000 acres are good  arable land, available for immediate settlement.

By multiplying 221,860 by 160,we  find that 35,501,600 ' acres were  given free to settlers in the period from January I, 1897, to December 31 last. The Ottawa Evening Journal, with its Pharisaical professions of being fair and  impartial, makes no mention of  these 35,501,600 acres of free  homestead grants under Liberal  rule, but sweepingly declares  that all the land has been "alienated forever at prices ridiculously  incommensurate with-its real value, and the man who is to meet  the enhanced cost which the speculators are to exact is the settler  whose interest the Liberal leaders  in 1893 pledged themselves to protect."  from the Crpwn to homesteaders  under simple conditions of settlement since the Liberals took office'  is thft ynanen'Criible "tOOf   'Q_��� tthft  truth of this statement ; and   if  further evidence is needed surely it j  is   supplied   iu   the    action   of  the     Government     in    setting \  aside, exclusively    for    settlers  the thirty million acres   of  land  which reverted-to it upon the termination of the railway reserves.  The man who invented the  lawn-mower was doubtless a genius, but he created a lot of trouble  for his fellows.  ���  |We hunt a lawyer when we want  to get the best of a neighbor; a  doctor when we want, to get the  best of ourselves1.  The man who courts tenrptat-  ion for the purpose of displaying  his strength usually ends up by  advertising his weakness.  If the Laurier Government were  a Government of graft as so freely charged by its enemies, the reversion to its control of this im-  *  mense area of arable land would  mean the opening up of an unprecedented opportunity for corruption , on a colossal scale. These  millions of acres*could be carved  up in laud deals like those of the  Roblin Government, for the enrichment of individuals; and the  man who would have to meet the  enhanced cost to be exacted bv the  looters wonld be the settlers. But  what course has the Dominion  Government, taken in regard to  these odd-numbered sections? It  has taken a course which absolutely bars out the land speculator. '  The odd-numbered sections are  thrown open first to actual homesteaders, and next for sale at the  price of $3 per acre, fixed by  statue, to men who have already  homesteaded, and who can only  acquire title by fulfilling settlement conditions on the odd-numbered sections, which they have  the right to buy at $3 per acre.  The speculator thus cannot get in  at all on the odd-numbered sections. They can be obtained only by actual settlers.  Does the Ottawa Journal think,  or does it not think, that this is  to the advantage of "the settler,  whose interest the Liberal leaders in 1893 pledged themselves to  protect ?"  We now come to free homssteads  given to settlers. The official  annual reports cover six calendar  years up to 1900, when a six  month's period was made the  stepping stone to having- the immigration year and the fiscal year  coincide. In 1906 it was decided  to have the Dominion's fiscal year  end on March 31, and the official  year in each of the Government  Departments' coincide with   the  By way of contrast, let us see  how many acres the Conservative  Government, which granted tens  of millions of acres in railway  grants, granted to homesteaders.  The official records;of the homestead entries during the eighteen  years of Conservative administration, from 1879 to 1896, deserve  attention.

Fire Chief s Recommendations  "Gentlemen : ��� During the  extremely dry season and the  lack of sufficient water supply, I  think it advisable that extra precautions should be taken to prevent damage from fire, therefore I  wonld advise* that all owners of  unoccupied buildings be instructed  to securely fasten entrances to  such buildings. The building between McRae Bros, and Thomas  Drug Co. should be torn down,  also the same should be done to  the old Pony stables. The fire  team should be kept as near tlie  fire hall as possible at all times-  and on windy days it should be in  the fire *' hall, regardless' of any  work to do.' In former years the  instr uction s were that' the first d uty  of the fire driver was the fire  department, after that public duty.  Lately it seems that he is under  instructionsjfrom the ch ief of police  after that to attend to street repairing, and, last of all the fire  duties. I think the last is the  mo8t|important."
