Sandon News: 0054.0079


            A forest fire surrounded Sandon on Monday and for a time the town was in great danger.  The entire population turned out to fight the fire.  On that day the train did not get through.  About noon on Tuesday the C.P.R. telegraph line sank heart broken under the strain of carrying messages of misfortune to its masters.  Sections of it have since been fished out of Arrow lake and Kootenay lake, and it has had spasms of usefulness, but imprecations are poured upon the C.P.R. for allowing their wires to hang where every high water reaches them.
