The most determined stand of all was made at the Crow's Nest Pass C-3ii! company's head offices, a big stone structure standing in the centre of a considerable lawn. To this building hundreds of women and children were hurried and when the tire fiend seemed to make its deter, mined effort to consume them here, he fire brigade and numerous volun, teers put up one of the greatest fights ?ver known. With fire raging on all men worked on the roof with water and wet blankets, the windows being defended by similar means. Fears were entertained that the wa- ter supply would not last until the danger was past and "that these fears were only too well grounded is borne out by the fact that in less than half an hour after the offices were con- sidered safe 'the water gave out und the rest of the town was completely at .the mercy of the devtetating ele- ment. Had the water given out be- fore, nothing could have saved the hundreds in the building as all ave- nues of escape were completely cut off. The rescue of the women and child- ren in West Feraie, where the Elk River Lumber company's plant is situated, was a plucky piece of work. There were "over fifty of them and only four men to save them. The bridge was gone and the only es- cape left was the- boom holding the log.s. These four men crossed and i re.crossed carrying the children and many of the women in their arms, ths boom sinking to their knees under 1 the extra load. All were landet safely although it is doubtful if could have been accomplished hac not some lumberjacks from one of the camps happened along to help th last few across.
