Tlie latest.reports from  the stricken Crow's Nest Passdis-  trict-while they are more hopeful  than couM possibly expected from  (he earlier stories of tha week, reveal a disaster, the tragical meaning of whicli iy is  quite   impossible to appreciate. Fernie is one  mass of wreck and as yet it is not  within tiie limits of possibility to  state the loss of life entailed.  '������   By a press correspondent cuver-  ing thejrrbuud, the. facts  given  are these: Fernie   is   gone, Hosmer is slightly injured and is safe,  Michel is untouched but   still  in  danger.     Unless   such   a  -��*ind  comes up as we bad on  Saturday  therejs no cause   for. apprehension though there is still   ample  occasion for careful watching,es-  pecially in the MichelQlocality.  , The tumult and the .shouting  dies .down- and. one  can take a  quiet look at the -situation   as a  whole.   In very   brief   recital, a  forest, fire started on   the   Cedar  Valley company's limits near Lizard creek, made a clean sweep of  Fernie, the sawmills and lumber  and the raw material of the lumber industry in the Crow, -wiped  out the lives of % number of people and seriously threatened   the  towns of Hosmer and Michel.,  y If one counts the value of   the  standing timber that is destroyed  the damage must run into   seven  or eight millions.    Yesterday the  ascertained loss of life totalled,16  ^jersons.^ ;���;���"-.'--;;--*-r---';-;-   ��� --������-������; ���  .   To attempt to picure the awful  desolation that has been wrought  in the.Crow is useless. To recount  the stories of the heroism displayed by railroad men and numbers  of citizens of the ruined or threatened     towns   is    also   beyond  our limits.    But of  Turtle,   the  Mayor of Fernie, everyone should  kno*w.   He is now thehead of the  entire relief   organization work.  When the fire burst in on Fernie he  managed to get to the pest-house,  which was one of  the buildings  destroyed, before it caught.- The  News   correspondent  tells    his  story:-  He gathered up the little baby  of-Mrs. Fisher, who was suffering  from smallpox, and also got the  mother away to safety. His clothes, all that he had in'the world  for the mument, were burned off  his back in doing, this act of heroism. The Victoria Cross was won  for less valor and the King-Edward medal should be his fitting  reward. No one,' to whom these  tidings come, will fail to shout  when he hears of them; brave  Tuttle ; good man, true and tried.  By some manner of means, the  railway line has beeu kept open.  Today Fernie will b> attending  largelv to the distribution of its  own food and clothing supplier  and to the neesls of its inhabitants  The erection -.f temporary structures has already been started anti  with the spirit that has made tho  Crow what it is, Fernie is. claim  iag the distinction of being tu  most cheerful-ruined city ou   tht  map.  The local relief committee  of  which Mayor Bunting is chairman yesterday reported their  work practically completed. In  spite of the untoward conditions  under which this camp has beeu  for the past nine months the subscription list circulated was received generously and a total of  $400 was subscribed which with  the $100 given by the council  mrfkes Greenwood's contribution  iu script $500. Beside this large  quantities of good clothing were  collected by the ladies' cornmif-  l ees and others -who bad the matter in hand. Speaking of tbe  work done in this way, Mayor  Bunting for the committee wished  to thank the various committees  for the excellence of  their work  Mayor Bunting, Aldermen Sutherland, Fleming, Meyer, Mortimer and Gulley were present at  Monday's Council meetihg.  L. Craufurd, of the Nelson  Iron Works asked that^heir water rule be reduced, the **ater uot  being used for manfactmiug purposes. .-,.    : -  .  A tender of $300 for a.hook and  ladder wagon was received from  Kinney and McDbnaJd.y  A settlement was offered by the  Phoenix Water C*>. f Jr' damage  to Providence Creek main by  washout from1 Marshall Lake.  The amount being ~ insufficient  the matter was referred to the  City Solicitor.   ������'������]    ���  The Fire Departments bill of  expense lor a false alarm turned  in from box 24 was $20J  Twenty-four curb boxes were  reported ordered from CraneJ Co.  and the extension of the ' water  main on Governmeut street completed. .. . .  The Council ordered the employment of an extra night watchman  as protection against fire. His  wages are $3 a shift.   :  The South end and Deadwood  street bridges were in need of repairs and Kenneth McKenzie will  do the necessary work.  John Mulhern. was - granted 10  day's leave of absence.-  Atthe next meetiug of the  Council, bylaws to amond the fire  protection by-law and the street  by-laws will be introduced. The  customary notice was given.  The following(.accounts were  ordered paid :   -yy  BOUNDARY MINING  FISH AND GAME.  Exploratory work on the Mou-  tezuma claim of the Domiuion  Copper is providing very encouraging, according to Superintendent Rundberg, who expects it  will be a shipper within a few  months.  The directors of the Skylark  Development Company, Limited,  held a meeting in town -on Tuesday evening. No information has  been given oui. for publication,  but it is understood the probabilities of resuming operation at the  "Skylark mine were considered.  -Pioneer. v '  Four of the. eight turaic^s at  the Granby smelter were blown  out on Tuesday for the purpose  of making connections with the  new blower pipe which has recently beeu completed. This new pipe  will take the place of the*one now  ii use, and when all the furnaces  are connected up with ifc the old  .pipe will be torn out to make  room for the lengthening of tbe  furnaces. This new pipe is above  the old one.  A. D. Hallett ,:'..;,;......  ...:|zo 55  B. C.

Tomorrow morning the two compressors' will be  turned over together with the  current and 'the compressor air-  will supersede the steam plant for  hoisting purposes iu the mine.  Steam will then be used only for  heating at the Mother Lode. The  completion of these improvements  means a certain,steady and abundant supply of power for the  mines.  and the great   interest they had  shown ia it.  Ofthe money collected, $300  was wired yesterday to Mayor  Fink, of Cranbrook, the ' balance  being spent according to his instructions in purchasing children's and ladies' clothing locally.  The extent of the work being-done,  it is difficult to appreciate but it  will certainly tax the resources  of the geueral committee in Cranbrook to the limit to relieve the  distress occasioned by the fire.  . Ciddeo's Statement  The execution of Francesco  Ciddeo, at Kamloops on x Friday  morning last was preceded by the  reading of a statement made by  the condemned man to Father Pe-  coul, his father confessor. The  execution which should have taken place at 8 o'clock was deferred  until 9.15 to allow replies from  Ottawa and Victoria. No reprieve  was granted the pris jnor and after again affirming his innocence  and asking that something might  might be done for his wife and  family who were in Italy and in  need, the little Italian suffered  with his life for all that he had  done;  ���'.- In. his statement,, Ciddeo connects Movarelli, who was arrested  and held for six months after the  outrage with Mrs. King and  another man Caglisto with Miss  King. He was aware of the powder being taken into the hotel  and having some trouble with  the other Italians over the.time  taken to place ity had tried to  warn King- of his danger. He,  Ciddeo had been drunk and boisterous and King paid no attention  while the women also failed to hear  him. While knowing about the  powder he claims to be innocent  of the crime and states that the  others made him take a solemn  oath over crossed daggers never  to speak a word about the matter.  They also gave him $20 with instructions to board a train going  to Salt Lake City and Ciddeo  states that the first he heard of  the burning of the hotel was from  an Italian in that city.  As will be seen, the statement  strongly Implicates tbe other two  men, while it by no means clears  Ciddeo, who certainly knew of  the danger threatening the house  and was evidently one of the party concerned in the outrage.  A small but enthusiastic coterie  of fishermen turned up at the  meeting of t1ie Fish and Game  Assfciation oa Friday night last,  the other m< inbers doubtless being too busy preparing for Sunday's fishing to attend the meet,  ing for the protection of their  sport.  Tne Association instructed that  Hon. F. J. Fullon be wired re  ���the appointment of Deputy Game  Wardens and itself decided to  offer $10 reward each for the first  three convictions under the Fish  Laws.  The secretary was instructed to  write E. Spraggett, Grand Forks,  as to the starting of a Protective  Association in that district.  The reward of $25 offered last  year for a conviction under tbe  Game Act was repeated. Notices  of the Game Act are .being printed and posted generally  over the district so that ignorance will be no excuse for infraction of he law. It is very necessary that measures of this kind  should be taken to protect the  game and to ensure the contin-  uanoe of the sport in the district.  MACHINISTS AT  EHOLT OUT  on  Twenty Men   at   Eholt  Strike with C.P.R. Machin  ists from Coast to Coast  Hot Weather Last Month.  The month of July just past  has been the hottest on record at  Greenwood for five years past,  with the exception of WCft, which  was slightly higher, However,  the week ending July 25th is  without exception the warmest in  the above period, the maximum  average being 95.93 and the minimum 56.58, giving a mean temp,  of 76.01 degrees for seven days.  The highest temperature recorded in the month was 103   in   the  ���  shade, on July 23rd at noon.  In spite of a warm July, the  summer as a whole will probably  present a nprmal average, as the  months of May and June.,are.thr.ee  and four degress below, the corresponding period last year. In  observations extending over five  years the yearly mean temp, has  been fouud-to | vary but two or  three degrees, notwithstanding  great changes in any one month.  The temperatures for July- for  several years follow:  The men at the Eholt shops of  the C.P.R. walked out on Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock along  with the other mechanical employees from St. Johu to Vancouver. AU Eholt about 20 men  are affected, these being carmen,  blacksmiths, machinists and helpers. One* man, a carman at  Greenwood, is also out.  As yet there are no local signs  of the company's fighting the  the strike, lt is understood that  company is making preparations  however, to fight the issue and  that preparations are being made  at Eholt to use one of the company's houses there as a boarding  house.  Coming on the top of- the . disr  Organization of the   fuel service  on the   Crow,  the   machinist's  strike has caused a touch of uneasiness.    Coke,   however,  is yet  coming in freely, thirteeen cars  having arrived this morning to be  added lo a considerable   reserve  supply at the smelter,   in view  pf the fact that the great rush of  the "wheat crop is almost on   the  railroads, it is certain that no tie-  up of the  entire  transportation  service of the country will be permitted.    Either the company will  be in a position absolutely to win  out or an  early settlement   will  be effected.

They have purchased the corner lot along side 'their present  location and are already at work  on the fouudation. The building  will be 25x75 feet and the entire  plant will be electric illy equipped   The C.P.R. station at Midway  was burned early on -Monday  morning, Howard Stevenson, the  agent, saving the records^of the-  company but none of bis own  household goods. His own loss  included $100 in money. Mrs.  Stevenson and their child were in  Greenwood visiting. A great  many friends in Greenwood will  regret not only their loss in this  misfortune but the transfer of  Mr. Stevenson to New Denver*  it being understood that he-- has  decided to-accept the offer of the  company's agency at the Lucerne  of America.

That speech has: made at least  one issue clear. The Conservative policv is to restrict the franchise to the more favored portions  of the riding. The Liberal policy is to give every man in the  district an opportunity to exercise  his franchise.  A CLEAR ISSUE.  Mr. Martin Burrill is paid by  the Government of tbe Province  ol British Columbia to deliver  lectures on fruit growing. Mr.  Burrill is the nominee ot the  Conservative party in the district  of Yale-Cariboo. Mr. Burrill enjoys variety aud notwithstanding  anything in the Civil.Service Act  he sometimes abandons his campaign horticultural, for a campaign political.  The militant and military editor of the Hedley Gazette has  been working overtime keeping  track of the lightning changes  of his hero. This issue contains  a report of a lecture on Fruit  growing and impressions of a trip  to England with possibly some  references to Codlin moth and San  Jose Scale ; the next is a fiery  description of a speech by the  Conservative candidate in which  one Duncan Ross is execrated and  almost annihilated.  According to the Gazette Mr.  Burrill was able to disiegard his  duties as lecturer for the nonce  aud attend the Conservative Convention at Nelson where he assisted his Kootenay political  friends in nominating that particular friend of labor, A. S.  Goodeve.  Mr. Burrill delivered 'a speech  at Nelson. It was a good speech  from a Conservative point of view.  If there was any reference to fruit,  it was of the dead sea variety.  The Hedley Gazette states that  he made a telling point when he  shewed the inconsistency of Duncan Ross on the Aylesworth bill,  that while Mr. Ross claimed there  was not time to distribute ballot  boxes betweeu nomination and  polling days in Yale-Cariboo, vet  he supported a clause in the bill  which provided for compiling new  voter's lists between the issue of  the writ and polling day.  Now Mr. Ross did nothing of  the kind and if Mr. Burrill or the  editor of the Gazette had read  the bill passed by parliament they  would know that there is no such  provision in it.  The speech, however, notwithstanding such inaccuracies serves  a useful purpose in showing-where  Mr.   Burrill   and    the    Gazette  stand iu reference to the election  in Yale-Cariboo.    They are both  iu favor of   an   election   on   the  same day as the general election.  This is only natural because it is  characteristically a Tory doctrine  that the franchise should be exercised by as few people  as   possible, "and the holding of an election in Yale-Cariboo on the same  day as the general election must  necessarily mean that  only such  as are convenient to the railways  would have an opportunity of exercising   their   franchise.      The  pioneer, the pathfinder,those -who  have   taken   possession   of   the  hinterland in the great district of  Yale-Cariboo, are to be punished  if Mr.   Burrill   and   the Gazette  are to have   their   way.    Accor-  ding-to these Apostles of Ancient  Toryism if a man lives   in   Kamloops, or Okanagan or   Similkameen or   Greenwood   or   Grand  Forks he will have an   opportunity to exercise his . franchise, but  if he has taken up a home in the  Nechacho Valley or the vicinity  of Stewart Lake, or on the   upper stretches of the   Fraser or on  the distant   parts   of   Chilicotin  sufficient time must not be given  to enable ballot boxes to be   sent  to a convenient place where he can  cast his ballot.    In Yale-Cariboo  Mr. Burrill and his friends stand  for a franchise restricted to those  who dwell within the   older   let-  tied portion of the district.     Mr.  Ross and the Liberal   party   believe that every   British   subject  i-i Yale-Cariboo of the full age of  21 years and  otherwise  qualified  is entitled to   his   vote   whether  grit or tory, whether Jew or Gentile, whether   he   resides in   the  north or ia the south, in east or  it. the   west,   whether he   lives  on a railway or has ventured into  The. terrible distress heaped upon the Pass towns by the unthinkable disaster of Saturday  and Sunday last is calling forth  the most generous sympathies of  the Boundarv people. The Crow  has been one long valley of remarkable optimi sm and bravery  and its homeless people today deserve not only all the sympathy  but all the assistance, the peo-  pie of the entire: province can  give them. The heroic measures  undertaken by the Mayor and people of Cranbrook and in conjunction with them by the Mayor and  people of Nelson will meet with  an echo of approval and co-operation not only in the large cities  of the Coast but in Greenwood  and the smaller cities of the Interior.  An account of the relief measures undertaken is given elsewhere. But the- suffering that  must be endured and the meaning  of the loss of a hundred lives is  quite beyond the appreciation eveu of people more fortunately situated than the inhabitants of  the burned  towns.  The disaster, perhaps, teaches  us our great interdependence.  The prosperity of the Grow means  to a great extent, the prosperity  of the Boundary. Our industries  are connected inseparably and it  is hoped that after the thought  of the fire has been forgotten, the  people of the two sections of the  province will see and remember  their oneness.  The assistance offered locally  is gratifying. And the assistance now offered need only be the  beginning of the co-operation  that will build in all Southeastern British Columbia a strong  settled community of almost unlimited resources.    ������  President, Dafiny Pean'e'-;;^"Vice-  President, W.
