(Special to the Herald) Fernie, May a. meeting of lite general committee of the Ferule District Fire Belief Fund, held last night, the special committee, ap- pointed some weeks ago to investi- j gate individual cases of need which j had not as yet received any assist-1 aiice from the fund, made its" report! and recommendations for final dis-' position of the fund. This report re- j commends assistance to the extent; of about S12.0UO and that a portion j f} of relief already extended, in the shape of lumber and other building material, be refunded. These refunds which represent loans, will amount to, approximately, This leaves a margin of some six or seven thousand dollars to meet contingeii- j and for administration of the remainder oi the fund. The special committee, which consisted of Rev. W. L. Hall. Dr. Corsan and James i Lancaster, have done a great deal of j work and were voted a unanimous vote of thanks for the able .and .thor- oug-h manner in which they have per- formed the very arduous task impos- ed upon them. With this report to i act upon, a speedy settlement of the relief fund matter is now assured. The Crow's Nest Coal Co. has de- cided to make an addition to the city of Fernie by surveying- and plat- ting an additional fifty blocks into lots. This new addition will adjoin tie northern boundary of the city, and will be a great advantage to those wanting to build residences, Lots in the Fernie annex west of the Great Northern tracks, have all been sold and that portion of the city now has three times as many houses as were.there before the big: .fire. The big- new mill of the Elk Lum- ber Co. has been completed and steam was turned on this afternoon for the first time.

Fort tra- gedy ocurred "miles from Stan- ley this afternoon when a woman whose name is at present unobtain- able, a house keeper to a farmer named Jackson, was burned to death. She had evidently been lighting the stove with coal oil; as the first in timation Jackson had that anything was wrong was when the woman, with her clothes a mass of flames, rushed from the house. Jackson, hurried to her assistance but before he could' aid her, the clothes had been ab- solutely burned off, not so much, as a rag being left and the woman dead. A two year old child of the vroman was also badly burned and is not expected to live. DISTRICT COURT At the _ district court before Judge Winter the cage of Young vs. Boer was heard.
