Power House Loses Its Roof
and Ceiling in a Blaze
Thursday Night,
For the first time since its commencing operations, two years and
one-half ago, the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting company has suffered loss and a temporary close down from the devastating
About 11:30 o'clock on Thursday
night William Shannon, in charge
of the Jpower house of the big reduction works, discovered flames in
the ceiling of the building. From
the nature of their starting place—
between the ceiling and the roof—
the fire had a good srart before it
was noticed. But upon the alarm
being given, all the employees at
work came rushing down from their
labors above and set to work extinguishing the fire with the appartus
on hand for just such an emergency.
But before they succeaded in over-
oming the flames the roof and ceiling of ahout three-quarters of the
building was eaten away, and fell
across the floor and machines below.
Chief Electrician Lane, who was
in Phoenix on a supervising trip at
the time, was immediately informed
of the coUdition of affaire, and arrived home before daylight on Fri-
diy. It was a badly disordered
state he found things in, but with
his staff he succeeded in righting affairs so that within twelve hours the
power was turned on over the temporary system.
In the meantime the carpenters,
under Foreman O'Keefe, had been
doing their utmost in cutting aud
clearing away thc debris overhead
and under foot, and had mode such
good progress that a protecting roof
was up before night; and the|whole
work, except the shingling, will
probably be finished by Saturday
General Manager Graves came up
from Spokane on the Great Northern
afternoon train and took a look over
the works and studied the situation.
As a result the works are to start! up
again tomorrow (Saturday) morning with two furnaces, Converters,
samplers, etc.
The cause of the fire was not announced, bin wa* probably due to a
short circuit caused by the wires
becoming. Thc loss sustained was
not large, as, beyond the ceiling and
roof, the building was very slightly
damaged. How the intricate generators, motors and pumps escaped
as they did, with the amount of
burning boards and timbers crashing
down upon them, is a marvel ; but
that they were slightly damaged, if
at all, is infeered from the fact that
they were all in running order so
soon after the mishap.
There will be a grand masquerade

An Open  Hot   Air Switch
Ditches the Engine and
Three Cars.
A bad freight wreck occurred on
the C. P. R. at the Hot Air junction, across the Kettle river, just
as dawn  was   breaking.
A west-bound freight was coming
along at a good speed. The Hot
Air switch had been left open, but
as quite a heavy fog prevailed at the
time, Engineer Blake was unable
to notice this fact until the train'
was within 100 feet of it. He then
reversed the throttle and prepared
to jump, which he did just as the
train crashed into the open switch.
Fireman Dewey, who was in the
back part of the tender at the time
followed his example, and both men
escaped without sustaining any serious injuries. The engine, tender
and three freight cars went over the
bank. A wrecking train and crew
were immediately sent to the scene
of the disaster, and all day was spent
in clearing away the debris.
The west-bound passenger train
was delayed about an hour and a
half by the wreck.

Grand Forks is indeed fortunate
in possefsing such an enterprising
and persevering institution as the
Granby smelter, Not many industrial concerns of its size in this country would have received the many
setbacks and sustained as many
shut downs as this corporation has
during the past year, through no
fault of its own, and still be ready
to resume operations as soon as each
succeeding difficulty is overcome.
What with coke strikes, low water,
fluctuating power, overdue machinery, inadequate coke supply, delayed
ore trains, devastating flames and
what not, the mrnagement have displayed great pluck in continuing to
overcome difficulties as fast as they
arise. Here's hoping these troublous
times are at .an end, and that the
Granby company are on a smooth-
sailing tack for many years to come.
Such perseverance deserver the very
greatest reward.
In our Tuesday's issue we printed
an item stating that the entire right-
of-way for the V., V. & E. smelter
spur had been secured with the exception of one parcel of land, and
that active construction work wonld
not be commenced until the matter
in dispute as regards this piece of
land had been settled by arditration.
Since that time numerous enquiries
have been made of The Sun as to the
cause of this blockading of the road,
the construction of which would, indirectly, benefit every citizen in the
community. Nearly all of "these
inquisitive people want to know if
the Hot Air road, in its somnambulistic state, is responsible for this
intorable delay, or whether it is
merely some of its emissaries
who are to blame. As The
Sun railway reporter is at present
too busy talking politics, we are unable to give the desired information.
But we will make an investigation
at an early day, and give our readers thc true facts in the case.
The people will not be likely to
take kindly to the referendum plank
in Mr. Creitz's platform. For labor
unions the referendum method of
transacting business may be all right,
but if applied to civic affairs we
think it would prove too cumbersome. Besides, it would be an unnecessary luxury. The municipal
government is costly enough now,
and additional expense saddled upon
it in the form of experimental legis
lative methods should be well considered before it is embraced. As
substitute for this plank, the people
should elect honest men to fill >.he
city offices. This would the best
and most inexpensive referendnm.
Mr. Martin Burrell is now in
the mayoralty contest. It was stated
for a long time that he would not
enter the race. We wonder why he
changed his mind ?
The New Year's issue of the
Spokesman-Review was a mammoth
paper. It was very complete statistically concerning the progress
made during the past in the large
territory it covers, besides containing a large amount of choice literature.

handsome Christmas edition, containing a beautiful half-tone bird's-
eye view of the city of Princeton.

To say that this splendid work of
science and art is finer and better
than ever, is stating it mildly. The
demand for |it is far beyond all previous years.' To say that such results, j reaching through thirty
years, are not based upon sound
sense and usefulness, is an insult to
the intelligence of the millions.

In reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance companies,
thc "Imperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on account of its
remarkably successful career. The
board of directors is composed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. Tbis company nas nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to
sell, and the fact that many large
policies have been issued by thc
Imperial, running as high as $200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company, Mr. J. A. McCallum

Fred Grant, one of Electrician
Lane's staff at the Granby smelter,
had a narrow escape from almost
certain death one day this week.
While working around some shafting which had just been put up, a
protruding nut caught on the bottom
of the leg of his overalls, and they
were speedily stripped from his person and wrapped in shreds around
fhe shaft. Fred says it happened
so suddenly it didn't have time to
shock even his modesty, as he was
wearing an additional pair of trousers at the time anyway.
Some useful changes have recently
been made to the fire hall by Chairman Sheads, of the water and light
committee. The city's fine team of
horses will in future be stabled
there, and will consequently always
be on hand in case of fire, and can
be hitched to the engine in thirty
seconds. Three firemen will sleep
in the hall, and one of these will be
on duty there in the daytime.
The hockey practices these evenings are furnishing amusement for a
goodly number of spectators. The
whole-souled manner in which some
otherwise staid citizen will wallop
his opponent and boost him into the
fence is a revelation to those who
have never tackled anything more
boisterous than ping-pong. The
audiences are impartial, too—they
are satisfied so long as anydody gets
turned wrong side up.
While unloading ore at the smelter on Wednesday Hugh Horn re-
ceivod a rather severe shaking up.
The dumping apparatus on one of
the cars refused to work, and just
as Horn stepped forward to locate
the trouble the contents of the car,
about thirty toos, went through the
bottom to the bins below, carrying
him with it. Fortuuately his injuries were confined to a wrenched
wrist and back and a few cuts on the
back of his head.
Work has been commenced on B.
Lequime's new residence on, CulUm-

The Grand Forks Hockey club are
to play a return game in Phoenix on
Saturday evening, 17th inst. The

train, and will be accompanied by a
big crowd of enthusiasts. A good
aggressive game is assured.
Chief Electrician Lane, of the
Granby smelter, was in Phoenix on
Wednesday and Thursday on de*
partmental business.
Mrs. Chas. Ellacott, a former resident of Grand Forks, spent a few
days in the city last week, before
proceeding to Spokane.
Grand Forks and Columbia are
now happily one. The auspicious
event occurred on the first day of
January, and the act was solemnized by proclamation of the attorney-
general. Ve take off our hat to the
