ACT OF A
The Canadian Hotel at Nia-
' gara is Blown Up and
Burned
One Person Killed and Nine
Others Serionsly Injured.
A crime bo atrocious in its incep
tion and execution that it is difficult
for law-abiding people to realize that
minds sufficiently depraved to con*
ceive it still exist, was perpetrated
at Niagara, a railway construction
camp on tbe Kettle Valley line, eight
miles north of tbis oity, at about
10:30 o'clook Sunday night. As a result of the cowardly and dastardly act
the Canadian hotel at that place is
now. in ashes; one innocent life
were instantly blotted out, and
nine other persons received more
or less serious injuries.
At the hour named two explosions
occurred almost simultaneously. The
first was rather light, but the second
shattered the building, a 2|-story
log structure, and, then set fire to it,
and burned it to the ground. At
the time of the explosion the hotel
was occupied by Mr. King, who
conducted the dining-room, his wife
and 18-year-old daughter Louise,and
a number of guests. The bar-room,
which was run by Jim Blanchett, the
holder of the license, was filled with
Italian navvies. Mr. King and his
family were on the second floor
when the explosion occurred. Mr.
King had retired, and the shock blew
him outof a window.attired in nothing
but a night robe. The injuries he received apparently unbalanced bis
reason, ior he has since been
wandering through the hills in a node
condition, running , from every one
whom he might meet, and pleading
piteously with them not to hurt
him. His face is reported to be in*
bleeding and lacerated condition.-Mrs
King and daughter .were in the sapiff
room, and strange to say, while the
girl was blown to atoms, her mother
escaped practically uninjured. Mrs.
King wns in theact of showing a
guest to his room when the explosion took place. This man arrived
in the city yesterday afternoon. His
face was badly cut and burned. Beyond the fact that he crawled out of
the burning building, he was unable
to give a lucid account of the catas*
trophe. Miss King was torn to so
small fragments that enough of the
remains could not be found yesterday to hold an inquest over. Her
clothing was blown against the next
building, setting fire to it, but it was
extinguished before much damage
was done. All those injur, d were
in the bar-room at the time of the
explosion. . '
Three of trie injured men were
brought down to the hospital yesterday noon, and last night another of
the victims wus admitted.
Dr. Dickson was called immediately afler the explosion, and be ar-
; rived on the field an hour after it
occurred. He described the scene as
resembling a battlefield. He worked
all that night and all day .yesterday
dressing the wounds and ministering to the wants of the injured.
/ The force of the explosion was
terrific. Large sawlogs were hurled
a distance of over a hundred feet.
No one appears to have any definite
idea as to where the explosives were
placed. Some seem to think that
the powder or dynamite was placed
under the house, the building standing on piles. Dr. Dickson, though,
iB of the opinion that the dynamite
had been placed between the ceiling
and sacond floor. In support of this
theory he cites the fact that all tbe
men injured in the bar-room were
hurt about the head—mostly in the
face, as if they had been looking up
towards the ceiling at the time the
discharge went off. The perpetrators
of the outrage had broken into tbe
railway construction magazine and secured their explosives from.it. The
powder had just been moved from
old to the new magazine last Saturday. The oM magazine is quite
close to the building blown up. Had
not this change been made the loss
of life and property would have been
appalling.
The motive of the crime is un
certain, though it is supposed to
have been prompted by a desire for
revenge. The men had been drink
iog and quarreling in the house all
day. This had so angered Mr. King
that he had informed the walking
boss, Capt. Disbrowe, to find an*
other boarding place for his men, as
he intended to close the dining-room
the following day.
A search was made all day yesterday for tbe body df Miss Louise
King, but up to last night had
proved fruitless. All the trace that
could be found of it was a streak of
blood from the house to the river,
and it is surmised that the fragments
were blown into the stream.
One of the injured men in the
hospital hi s a fractured skull, one
eye badly damaged, and rive broken
ribs.
Up to the present three men bub*
pected of having been implicated in
the crime have been arrested. Provincial Constable I. A. Dinsmore
brought down two yesterday and
locked them up in the provincial
jaii, an<l last he, accompanied by
Chief Savage, started up the river for
the third.
'/ The, latest information is to effect
that Mr. King has returned to his
wife, and they are now guests at thc
Queen's hotel in this city.
The man who was most Beriously
injured is doing as well bb can be ex
pected under the circumstances.
The latest theory as to mot ve for
the crime iB that ii was planned by
a man because bis advances to
Mrs. King were spurned. It is also
believed -hat the diabolical deed wns
executed by nil'accomplice ofthe
man who planned it.

Dr. Fagan Gives An Interesting Address at a Public
Meeting
Urges Citizens to Organize in
Stamping Out the Consumption Curse
Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer,
of Victoria, addressed the citizens at
a public meeting at the opera house
last night. His address, was a plea
for the better care of coi sumptives in
the province of British C lumbia, and
his views were logical and interesting
The dootor briefly reviewed present
existing conditions in health matters
and very much deplored that a civilized people should be ignorant of the
common laws of health and sanitary
conditions both in public and private
life, thus by our own carlessness daily
making possible the inroads for a disease that was continuously robbing us
of those near and dear to us. We
must look at the matter in a more
serious light. It was important and
demanded serious meditation. This
menace to humanity must be stamped
out from our midst, and it was in our
power to do it. Important steps in
this direction were being taken in
ditfierent parts of the province, and
he now urged upon us to take a like
stand in the interest of humanity. It
was not a battle assigned to a few individuals; it was everbody's fight and
everybody must fight together. Organizations must be formed in every
city throughout the province for the
purpose of bettering conditions and to
^aise funds for the erection and maintenance of a government institution
where consumptives could be properly
cared for as well be taught the principles and common laws governing the
physical man. He minutely explained matters in this connection and the
benefits that would result. A substantial sum had already lieen secured
from variouB sources and everything
looked bright for a realization of the
objects in view. Especially were the
ladies urged upon to interest themselves in this movement, as they
wielded a considerable influence in
public and private life, and could to
a Urge extent exercise their powers to
maintain more healthful conditions.
They should carry the work into the
public schools. The coming generation should be taught early in life
that which they bud a riglit to know
regarding theii physical wellbeiug so
that they would in after years be fit
for the struggles of life and not mere
nonentities. The expectoration nuisance hod no place in our homes nor
on the publio thoroughfare. This
habit alone was daily breeding mil
lions of disease germs which weie
subsequently carried off in different
ways and lodged in a slightly affected
lung, when the death of the victim
invariably followed. Here the ladies
could prevail upon husbands and brothers to set better examples for the
boy. Ho was deluding himself with
the idea that to spit was manly sim
ply because his elders were doing it.
Other objects for serious thought
were pointed out to the ladies.
After a thorough explanation of all
points of the movement for   better
care of consumptives and methods
that should be adopted for its prevention, the speaker urged the citizens to
organize and secure funds for the promotion' of this work locally and to
liberally lend their aid that a public institution for the proper attention to
consumptives could be built. Members of the city council, Revs. Steel
and Auvache and Dr, Kingston being
present were then called upon for
views regarding the matter, al) of
whom expressed themselves as being
in hearty accord with the sentiments
of the speaker. Dr. Kingston moved
that a committee be appointed to take
the matter it hand, but his motion
whs overruled by the chairman, Mr.
Burrell, who contended that it would
be advisable to postpone such appointment till a larger representation of
citizens could be present. Rev.
Auvache then made a motion, second*
ed by Aid. Clements, that Dr. Kings*
ton be appointed as an executive otfi
cer, which carried.
The meeting was closed by a motion
by the chairman that Dr. Fagan be
tendered a vote of thanks, and this
was done.

Greenwood Amateurs Give a
Credible   Performance of
"Our Boys"
There was great rejoicing in the
household of Mr. Hodges last Friday,
when the long lost imported bull puppy, for the return uf which a substantial reward had been offered, walked
in from the mountains. He was lean,
gaunt, emaciated and ravenously hungry, indicating that dog food in the
hills must have been very scarce. He
collected his own reward in the form
of a square meal.
The liberal patronage accorded the
Greenwood Amateur Dramatic club in
"Our Boys'" at the opera house lost
Saturday night speaks well for the
neighborly spirit of our citizens. The
play was well presented for an ama-
tuer caste, and especially good was
the work of Mr. Kendall as Middle-
wick. Several selections by the city
band between acts helped to enliven
the occasion and were much enjoyed.
Some one attempted to stir up a
wave of excitement in this city lost
week by circulating the report that
Thomas McPhee, proprietor of the
Franklin store, hod been lost in the
mountains. It turned out that the
leport was not wholly founded on fiction, in fact Mr. McPhee had really
been lost, but he had found his way
back to the Franklin camp metropolis
the next day.

The fearful catastrophe at Niagara
Sunday night should teach a lesson
to licensing commissioners in future. The custom ot granting licenses
to everybodying apply for tbem
along lines of railway construction
should be discouraged. The provincial government is on record an not
wanting these ginmill, as they are a
prolific incentive to crime, and the
railway companies have taken the
same stand. Why, then, shonld
every irresponsible person be given
a license simply that he may replenish his purse by conducting a
resort where crimes are hutched
while men are under the influence of
liquor?
The Okanagiin newspapers are
cornering the Nelson real estate
agents for circulating the report that
the West Kootenay is the only dis
trict in British Columbia capable of
raising high-grade fruit. Nelson appears to be on the verge of reaping
the inevitable boomerang of misrepresentation.
There have been no rumors regarding tne dissolution of the local
house during the past tnree days,
and life in political circles is a dreary
blank.
Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a" cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the following simple fiiriniilii, the ingredients of
which can lie obtained of nny good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
nil that will be required! Virgin Oil of
Pino (Puce), one-half ounce; Clycer-
inc, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Slinkn well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately und prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in a round wooden cane
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with tho name—
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. Tliere aro many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.
British Labor for B. C.
Victoria, Nov. 17.—Twenty-five
thousand of the laboring classes of
England will be brought to Canada
next year through the Salvation
Army. This announcement was
made today by a local representative
of the organization' Commissioner
Coombe is expected to arrive Jhere
early next month to enter into negotiations with the provincial government with the idea of arranging to
bring a large proportion of their emigrants to British Columbia.
Of the 12,000 that were given pus-
sage from the old country to Canada
last year through the instrumentality
of the Army, very few reached this
province.
Owing to the lack of desirable la
boring classes the provincial author
ities are anxious that none of thes-
home-seekers should find their way to
the west. They wish particularly to
bring trained agriculturists as helpers
for the farmers, experienced miners to
augment the forces at the different
mines of the interior and on Vancouver Island and girls to take palaces as
domestic servants, a class of labor
needed all throught British Columbia.
The minister of agriculture is responsible for the move and hopes to
arrange with the army to induce as
many as possible of these workers to
come to this country, He is confident that several thousand could be
accomodated here and proposes enlisting the help of both the Army and
the transportation companies.
His plans have not yet been definitely announced.

A business man in a town not a
hundred miles Irom Grand Forks re
cently posted the following announcement in his window: The reason why
I have hitherto been able to sell my
goods so much cheaper than anybody
else is that I am a bachelor and do
not need to make a profit for the
maintainance of a small wife and a big
family. It is now my duty to inform
the public that this advantage will
shortly be withdrawn from them, as I
am about to be married. They will,
therefore, do well to make their purchases at once at the old rate.
You May be Sick Tonight
Without a meinent's warning pain
springs upon us. At the outlet it is
instantly cured by Nerviline. Surprising what fifteen drops of this marvelous medicine will do. Its ex term 1
action is no less certain than its wonderful effect when takeii ii ternally.
Of course Nerviline is powerful or it
couldn't be so penetrating. But not
irritating or caustic. There are other
pain remedies, but when you use Nerviline you see the difference. That
difference is this,—others relieve, but
Nerviline does enre sprains, strains,

Last week at the Granby mines
one of !|he largest blasts ever set off
in that camp was fired. It was at
the No. 1 lever of the Knob Hill
and 24 holes were driiled, being
loaded with about 500 pounds of
powder. About 25,000 tons of rock
came down, mostly ore.
At Moyie the men on the St. Eugene payroll were given their checks
on the 10th, and it was the biggest
payday in the history of the mine.
The amount disbursed was $36,000.
There being somo 240 men on the
payroll, it will be seen that the average wage per man per month is over
$100. Last month the amount paid
was $32,000. The increase is due to
the extra number of men working in
the shaft. The men sinking this shaft
are now down 95 feet below the first
station, and will go another 60 feet,
when station No. 2 will be cut.
When this is done the shaft from the
collar will be down nearly 275.
Work on the addition to the mill is
getting well along. This is 37x41
feet, and will   lie   used   as a  vanner
