Car Dashed to Pieces.  San-don, Oct. 21.���������A serious accident  occurred on the Kaslo & Slocan railway at.1:15 to.day. A coach with two  passengers ran away from the" Last  Chance siding on the Cody switchback,  and was totally demolished near the  foot of the grade, which commences  at the Payne.office. .As is the general  custom, the Kaslo Si Slocan started up  with a couple of box cars and one  coach.- At the Last Chance siding the  coach was left on the main track,  while some switching'was done. ��������� The  air brake was set and'thc hand brake  scrswad np light,., but when .the air  worked oif the tension on the hand  brake was too,gieat and fhe chain  broke. The car started before the  trainmen noticed it and Mis. -Winters  and child, of Cody, the only passengers  on board, unable to. get off, found  themselves rushing to'-almost' certain"  death. The coach shot down the  steep grade to a sharp curve near the  bottom of the hill, where it left ihe  track and was' dafched against the  rocks. 'Although the car Was completely demolished the passengers  escaped without fatal injuries.  Gets Two Years.  , Judge Walkem sanleuced Sungala.  the Nakusp section foreman, to two  years in the penitentiary on Monday  last. The prisoner's wife was much  affected at the sentence and tried I o  plead in broken English for her  husband. After sentence was passed  Ktibala. the interpreter, remarked  "He goes to jail for nothing." The  judge advised him to hold his tongue  and a'dded that Kubala would be tried  for perjury if he understood English  better. ' ' '-"_  City Council Meeting.  (Continued i'roni Saturday's issue)  Aid. Abrahamson pointed out that  the city had paid $000 for' the fire-  alarm system as well as for poling it  and never yet in the three years had  it'been ot any service whatever No  kind of wire would be of any use wilh  the present insufficient number of  poles. He had jui - approximate- esti-  'lhatefrciTTrMrT Cmvari'l'or "a" new' :syo-"  tew to be strung on the_elcctric light  poles which he would ask the clerk to  read. He advised puiting the system  tinder the care of the electric light  staff aiul paying a small sum to have  il continuously and properly looked  after.   Another  thing   was   that   the  fire hall on Front St..was [entirely useless. We are already paying a vory  heavy insurance, and if things were  allowed to run on in the way they are  now we are liable to find our fire  insurance cut off altogether. The  council would be responsible if a  second Sandon catastrophe occured in  Revelstoke.  The secretary read the following  from W. Cowan: 5 miles of XV. P. iron  win*, $HTi; Installing apparatus and  stringing wire, ,$100; Pole lenlal of  electric light poles per year 25c; Cost  of liiainlenance should not exceed $10  a year, outside of supervision. Mr.  Cowan promised that should thc  company be entrusted with the  insinuation and care of the city fire  .'ilitiiu system the city could at all  times depend on getting the best  possible results that can be obtained  froin tin* present apparatus.  Aid. Nettle moved, seconded by Aid.  McLeod lhat the Mayor write the  city engineer of Kamloops, making  full enciuirics iu reference to the fire  alarm system and particularly enquiring in what respect the alarm has been  altered by the authorities of that cily  since ils installation by Mr. Dier.  On I he question of No. 1 fire hall  Aid. Abrahamson strongly advocated  the establishment of a central fireball.  Then with one man and a team the  hose reel could be at either end as fast  as il, can now with two flre halls. Aj,  present with a double set of expenses  we had no proper fire protection at all  One hall and one brigade would give  us something for our money. Would  it not be more sensible to establish  such a system ?  Aid. McLeod thought it would not be  wise to move No. 2 lire hall into the  centre of the city and make it a central  hall. Of course two halls and brigades  were mort/ expensive than one, but  the scattered shape of the town  demanded two firehalls.  Aid. Nettle thought it would be.  better it' No. 2 fire, hall had been  originally built'in the centre of the  lown hut, he was distinctly opposed to  going into a big expense to move it*  now.  The Mayor would like to see. a full  council to discuss this most serious  * matter. Eventually it would have to  come to a central hall but he saw very  little use in the present discussion.  Aid. Ahrahamsbn said' the council  was responsible for the "raise of' one-  third iu the insurance rates. During  tlie whole year nothing had been done,  Agents had already refused l.o take  some 'insurance'-.and;'the" ratepayers  "vveVu'theoneS'wIkT'were'siiffe'ri tig".5" *'*-''  Moved by Aid. Abrahamson seconded by Aid. Nettle that the finance  committee report as to the financial  condition of the council, and the  public works committee on the  relationship between- fire hall lots-  and fire purposes and probable cost of  removing fire hall No. 2 on city block  mi Second st. opposite schoolhouse.

The question of the fire protection  of this town, which is now, though  late in the day, occupying the attention  of the council, is one which cannot  reasonably be allowed to dilly dally  along any longer, There are two items  which ree_uir������ immediate attention���������  the fire alarm system ancl the state of  affairs at the No. 1 station. The town  has already expended an moonlit, in  the neighborhood nf $1500 on a file  alarm system, which has been nothing  but a source of annoyance and trouble  ever since it was installed. If it is to  be rendered ellicient, there i.s no doubt  at all from the experience of Kamloops,  wliich has been through exactly the  .same mill, that insulated wires have  got to be put. iu and properly poled.  Our wires are naked and sagging aboul  between poles, some of them as much  as 275 feet apart. Then again there  should be somebody responsible for  seeing that the system is constantly in  llrst-class working order once it is put  in shape. A fire alarm'systcm should  nover be -five minutes out of repair.  Mr. Cowan has made a very reasonable offer covering the entire ground,  which will give us a real alarm system  for our money, and the Hehai.d  considers that the city cannot do better  than to put the matter into his hand*.  We know perfectly well what the  trouble is with the system. The only  thing to be done is to go to work and  get it fixed and kept fixed.  Then there is the condition of alfaira  down town. There is supposed to be  a No. 1 brigade antl a No. 1 fire hall.  Really there is neither the one nor the  other. The brigade has never had a  meeting or turn out since last spring.  The members are not to blame. They  have no plac������ to meet in. The hose  reel and chemical engine are stored  in the old No. 1 fire hall, which is  rapidly falling over against the new  Chinese joss house. There is no tower  and consequently no feasible way of  drying the hose. The old Gold Hill  building was purchased last xpring or  was not purchased last spring, nobody  seems exactly to know which. At all  ' evenfs~Eire~iilea wasTo convertnt-into"  a No. 1 fire hall and those relics of  antiquity, the old fire saws, are hanging on the wall thereof as the outward  sign and symbol of this inward intention ofthe council unto this day. Also  yarioiu small odds an.l ends of equipment are stored within. But as the  Hoor is three inches below the sidewalk, the hose reel and chemical  cannot be kept ^in it. There is no  accomodation for the brigade. Xo  rooms for any members to sleep in so  as to be on hand in case of an alarm  at night. The roof leaks and the  building in generally uninhabitable  und uselesM for flre hall purposes.  Its whole appearance irresistibly  suggests a policy of "let 'er slide."  There was as far back an las>t March  money voted to put the place in such  ������������������hiipe that the reel and chemical could  at all events he l tin in and out of it.  It has never, been expended. Perhaps  the public- works committee did not  consider that it was worth while  expending even that trifling sum nu a  building, the ownership of which was  a conundrum. But that is no tea-son  for leaving that end of the town  without any fire protection at all.  They pay their taxes down there the  same as other people.  Because there is no use blinking and  halk-ng at tbe situation any longer.  The question has got to be taken up  for permanent settlement. There ha**7  either got to be one central fire hall fo.i  the whole city or rise ,*. flre ball built  down town. A central flre hall would  lessen the double expense entailed hy  I wo stations, two sets of equipment  und two biigades. It would, however,  certainly necessitate the purchase  nnd upkeep of a team of horses and  the wages of a man to be constantly  on hand to look after and drive them.  Of course the team could be utilizedfin  other ways for city work. But the  idea of using thetn for scavenging  purposes at night,'.would,  if adopted,  hardly tend to lower insurance rates  in town. If thc team is not right on  hand at night, we might just as well  not have it atalland the central lire  hall idea hud belter lie given up. The  chief objection, however, to a fire hull  in the only part, of the* town which  can be considered its geographical  centre is that very few live around  that quarter who would lie reached by  an alarm. Si ill, if a hired u-auislcr  wilh a team was always on hand and  some of Iho brigade sleeping in the  hall at night, there would be quite  sufficient on hand to make a start fenfire and they would very soon find  themselves joined by plenty of others,'  when they arrived at the scene of the  conflagration.  If, however, the people of this town  prefer to keep up the present system of  two fire halls, common s"ti-i* nud  common fairness demand lh.it they  shall carry il out. T\vo lire- li.nl-; does  not mean one fire hall at one eiul and  none at all at, lhe othei'. Thou1 who  dislike- the idea of inuring onr one  available fire hull from its present  position to a more geographically  central site, must, consent lo help  pay for the erection of another one in  the west end of the town. Hale-payers  and councillois may talk till they are  black in the face, bul l.o amount of  talking will make one fire hall inlo  two.  ROD SPARED,  ���������WINDOWS SMASHED.  The healthful and elevating amusement of window breaking has been  greatly in vogue for some time past  among the rising generation of Bevelstoke. Not only do the boys themselves consider any empty house fair  game for target practice but there are  even some parents, who appear to  regard it as the inalienable right of  their male progeny to heave half a  brick through the window panes of a  vacant domicile. The sport culminated the other day in the usual place  wliere this form of recreation generally  does wind up sooner or later, the  polico court, where two youthful  culprits wore paraded for throwing  stones through the windows, not of an  empty house, probably there were  none left unbroken, but of some cars  standing in the C. I'. 1{. yard. The.  class of youths, who commit this sort  of depredation, is tlirough the absurdities of the Canadian code in  handling juvenile olVences very dilli-  cult to deal with. There is nothing  for the magistrate to do but to let  them go with. a. warnirg, which  passes oif their minds like water off a  duck's back or else* send them to jail.  To send tlieni to jail is to run the  almost certain risk of converting a  boy, whoso offence may bo merely the  outward expression of his over exuberant spirits, into an incipient criminal.  No magistrate wants to have such a  burden as that on his mind, so thc  practical result is that the boys are  released and fresh gaps continue to  make theirappearancein the windows.  If the court was allowed to inflict a  good round fine, with the option of  remitting it. if the parent, out, of  whose pocket, it would of course have  to come, consented to administer  then and there in the presence of the  magistrate a reasonable amount of  salutary correction with the old  fashioned birch rod. the landlords of  uninhabited tenements would be able  to sleep in peace.

Says The United Smelter Trust  are   Back   of the   Marysville  '.Smelter and Refinery.  J. C. Drewry arrived in Nelson last  week from Rossland. lie is on his  way to the True Blue mine at Kaslo,  and from there he will go to the St.  Eugene and Great Dane properties.  M r. Drewry is of the opinion that the  recent activity of the Canadian  Pacific Railway people with respect to  the establishment of a refinery is in  no small measure due to the commencement of operations in the  Marysville smelter, which according  to the statements of the men interested in this smelter scheme will keep  the C. P. R. people guossing for some  time. Already he said it was intimated that the United States smelter trust was interested in the venture  and'it would not be very surprising if  this should prove the case, nor would  ic be unwelcome, since it could be  counted upon as having the. effect of  sti r ri ng the C. P. It. people   up.      Mr.  Drewry   said   he  question   of   tonnage  was aware that the  had    been   the  stumbling   block .in   the way of   the  refinery project, but  he   thought this  difficulty would be removed by thc 1st  of   January.      The   present   arrangement between the United States   lead  producei-s and   the   smelter   trust expires then, and the   outlook   was   not  considered favorable for a   renewal of  the presentarrangement.    On thecon-  t.rary, it looked very much-as if   there  would   be    ;i   coiiHict.   The'  present  arrangement works  to   the disadvantage of lht! British Columbia mines, so  tbat if it in upset it cannot but work  out lu  lheir   advantage.    If the lead  pioducer- of lb*; United Stales started  in   lo   fight      the   smeller     trust    it  would  be but   reasonable   lo  suppose  lhat the Li 11st will do what it can   to  put the United Stales  producers  into  competition w'tli the   lead  producers  of British Columbia and .Mexico.    This  would   'give   nn   added   value   In   the  ni-iti--.il Columbia lead  and  .something  along  this line   was   neces-ary   befoie  the   management of the   -St.   Kugeiie  would consider the <|uestiou  of   shift-  ping.    The     company   was     not   experiencing any difficulty with  re.ipect  to the marketing of its product,  but il  did not consider the present.quotations  sufficiently inviting  and could  afford  to wait   in  view   of   the   prospect   of  better prices.
