One  life was lost, property valued at  tliirtyfive thousand dollars went  np in. smoke,  Had it not been for the heroic  work of tho firemen, assisted by  tho citizens, the whole business  seotion of the town would hav|  beeji destroyed.  Tlio firo started in -McNi'vpn's  boarding house, wliich ..had* been  partially wrecked liy thelate powder explosion, and spread with  great rapidity to adjoining build-  tigs, Grant & Mounce'a block  caught as also did Campbell Bros,,  block. These buildings, adjoining  the boarding house were coinplete-  iy destroyed and several business  firms burned out -     ���������'���������  The following merchants are  heavy ',losers: Method's gents'  furnishings; Campbell Bros.,gene  ral store and bakery; Fraser'8 barber shop, and Mrs. Mattel's millinery store. J. McNiven's furniture  was almost totally destroyed, loss  about two thousand dollars, no insurance. .'���������-**.'  The buildings being so close together inade the work of the -firemen very, .difficult, and ..as the  town has been handicapped with  its water supply of late owing to  the recent cold snap, a good stream  could not be obtained from tiie'  huse. In order to get'more-water  the electric light plant was" shut  TljtJX-rnTTtntHlri^  supplyconsiderably.-. .   *  It is believed that the fire originated in the .room 'occupied by  George Reed, a boarder in the Mc-  Niven house. Humours are about  as to the cause of the'fire, but as  far as enn bo .lenrnsd it is all a  surmise. Mr, lieid was .rescued  with great' difHciilty. lie was severely ohrned, ���������  J. Scott a boarder unfortunately  lost his life in tlio fire. He- was  cAlIol by liis room mate, but  )),iit failed to get out.
