It had such a strong bold  that whei. >Tr. Beattie awoke with the  noise of the flames he was surrounded  by .fire and had to rush throngli. ifc to  get^to the balcony, from which lie  jumped. , - , -      - c-  The boarding bouse, which is shown  on the left of the picture, was three  stories in height with broad 'verandah  on two sides. It covered a ground  space of 32ft by 70ft, and provided  dining, sitting, and reading rooms for  the company's employees, large kitchen  fitted wjth two ranges, private dining  room and well-furnished sleeping  looms.  On word being sent to the C P B  they piomptly furnished' a special  engine and caboose and, accompanied  by Dt Sutherland, brought Mr. Beattie  to the hospital, where he suffered  great pain and died Wednesday morning, twenty fotu hours after bis  admission.  The cause of the fire was the up  setting of a lamp by a dog which was  in the building. '  Mr. Beattie had been east, and only  returned the night before the fire.  ^Fortunately the night was calm or  the mill and its enormous stock of  lumber might have been destroyed.  As it was 50,000 feet of lumber was  burned  Mr. Beattie was one of the best  lumbermen in America, having made  a great reputation in the Tarry Sound  district, which lie also represented in  parliament for some years, being returned by increasing majorities in  recognition of hisability and integrity.  lie was appointed manager of the.  Arrowhead Lumber Go's mill in 1003,  and ran the old Do Cue mil! to supply  the lumber for building the new mill.  That mill was destroved by fire hist  fall.  Mr Beattie designed and built the  new mill for the Arrowhead Lumber  Co., and it was recognized as one of  the best designed and economically  managed in ills-in British Columbia.  Mr. Beattie was unmarried. He  leaves three brother and three sisters,  two of whom are at hi-old bonus at  Parry Sound. A brother who lesidcs  at lied Deer came to take the remains  east. The deepe.-t regret at his death  is expressed throughout the district,  for during his residence at Arrowhead  he became highly esU'tnied by all who  came in Contact with him, and bis  death is not onlv a loss to the company with which he was connected  but to the industrial interests of-  Kootenay. Mr. Beattie was f)S years  of age.  W. B. W. Armstrong, secretary to  the company, arrived in the city  yesterday to complete arrangements  for sending Mr. Beattic's body e.ist.  The Free Mason of the city, in  regalia, accompanied the remains to  depot.  Mr. Taggart- was a married man,  his wife and family living in the east,  and much sympathy is felt in their  benavenient. They were about to  come wen to join him.  Taggart, did heroic work. Jle went  from room to room rousing his sleeping fellow employees, and hauled  several of them out of bed, throwing  one of them out of the window in the  rush and breaking the sash.   He fell  through the binning   (leoi  risking his life for,others.

'  THE CITY.  Railway and Other. Improvements���������A Great Season's  Progress in sight for Revel-  stokei  With the new C. P. R. station and  extended yards about to bo put in  hand at Itcvelstoke the City is> entering on a season of great progress. The  new station and yards will be among  the finest of the company's system. A  gicat deal of excavating and masonry  work will have to be done in connection with the new station, as the hill  in the rear of the station site has to  be cut away and a huge masonry wall  erected, behind which will run ';the  new load to connect the city with the  C. P. It. Hotel.  The new station will have a long  platform extending westward, from the  north side of which the south tiain  will depart.  ;ihi; c. f. u. siioi'S.'  Jt is probable steps will shortly be  taken to extend the C. P. It. shops  here, as these-will be the'principal  shops of the company in British  Columbis. New and up-to-date machinery is, to be. added and the shop  statl' is to be considerably increased,  111 order to handle the bulk of the  company's railway work. This docs  not mean that the shops at Vancouver  will be 1 educed in importance but  they will be' specially equipped for  handling the steamship machinery,  the extensive possessions of the company necessitating their having large  special shops to handle this work, and  leaving the work of handling tho lolling stock to Revelstoke. There is  .���������Ho the mechanical work of the S'and  O branch and Arrow bake steamers to  he done heie, and it is not unlikely the  time may conic when the C. !'. R. may  iitiild 11 branch north to tup tho big  Iti'iid. The C. I'. It. is adopting a more  vigorous policy than ever in British  Columbia, and'wheievcr the company  giici.it railway building it makes for  pro^u's-i and prosperity.  Since the company arranged with  Ihe city to get the suipllis oveillow  hum The new city waterworks the"  iv.it 1 1 riipplyat the shops and yard  h.is lucii exeollent. The air compres-  "ion s.Vitern with which the shop is  fitted ir1 also a great convenience.  Since Mr. Anthony has taken charge  of the -shops things have gone swimmingly, the utmost harmony having  piev.iilcd amongst t he employes, and  the work has been well kept up to date.  The C P, It shops arc an important  fi .1 tut'��������� of the City of Revelstoke providing .1 large mill Htculy pay-mil, and  Hie-c iliiipi arc only in the'u infancy,  fo," the tune willcome when the C.I1.II.  will connect the Crow's Neil, line with  the main line at Itcvelstoke, and thus, j  with the Kootenay trallic, will make I  this city the most important railway  junction in I'ritish Columbia,   i ��������� ' ' '  Ifi.'i hands arc at present employed  in the C.

' A deal is on for the amalgamation  of the whole" of the townsite interests  of the city under one management.  A new loan company, the Great  West, intends doing business in Revelstoke, C. F. landmark to be president  of the local board; W.A. Foote, assessor ; and the Revelstoke Insurance  Agency, agents.  A new industry is projected in the  shape of a large and up-to-date sash  and door factory to operate in connection with one of the lumber-mills.  Sawyer Bros, sash and door factory  will run right through,the season for  the first time in its history, the business fully warranting this course. The  local factory now gets a considerable  share of the trade of the Northwest.  Several new residences and business  blocks are projected. Everybody feels  the" greatest faith in the future of  Revelstoke, which is now recognized  as one of the soundest and most pio-  tjressive cities of the west.   ������  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS.
