TREADWELL TOPICS. Miss Carrie M. Risedorph, who has j been elected to take charge of the Treadwell school for the comiug terra, is expected about the last of the month. She will be accompanied by her sister, who will remain here for the year. Preparations for the firemen's ball are being perfected, and the event will probably occur some time late in the j mouth. Everything will be on a large scale, and the affair promises to be a very gorgeous one. Recent advices from Mr. F. W. Brad ley, consulting ougineer for the Tread well companies, state that he will leave Sau Francisco for here about Aug. 20. A large arc light near the foundry is one of the latest improvements at Treadwell. Messrs. Sterling, McICinuon, Heusoti, Crofts, Tompkins, Hubbard and Harri I sou went over to Young's Bay on a fishing trip last Sunday.

The Santa Cruz arrived Monday night with a cargo of powder. A tire broke out in the Ready Bullion coal bunkers last Wednesday afternoon at 4:30, which proved the most trouble some of any the firemen have had to handle for some timo past. The salt water pumps were immediately putin action, and a large stream of water kept playing upon the smouldering coal which appeared for some time to hold the fire in check. It burst out suddeuly however, the blaze spread into the j boiler room, disabling the boilers and thus crippling the sea pumps. As soon as possible the full force of water from the Treadwell ditch was turned into the new Bullion water way, and with this immense volume of water at com-1 maud, extinguishing the fire was a , matter of a few minutes. Had such a fire broken out at auy time before the ' building of the new ditch to the Ready Bulliou, it is likely that the mill audi perhaps all the other buildings would ' have been destroyed, as the wind was: blowing in an unfavorable direction, and the crippling of the sea pumps would have left them with only a small hose to depend upou. The building of the ditch, however, assures the Bullion of ample water power for coping with any blaze that may occur. The prompt, and active efforts of the firemen wore: of inestimable value in checking the advance of the flames,Mexicans in par ticular covering themselves with glory.! The Douglas firemen kindly turned out to give their help but the fire was ex tinguished before their arrival. Spou-; taneous combustion is the supposed j cause of the fire. The damage consisted in the burning of the coal in the bunkers, the disabling of the boil - J ers, and the partial burning of the j eugine room. A force of machinists and carpenters were immediately siari- j ed on the repairs, and it is expected [ that in a very short timo everything i will be in working order as before. The mine and mill are running as usual. A very enjoyable afternoon card party was given by Mrs. D. B. Veasieat her home on Treadwell Heights last j Saturday. From start to finish, the ' time passed pleasantly to the enjoy-! ment of the assembled guests. The' score cards were unusally dainty, rep-1 resenting typical Dutch scenes in water ! colors. Mrs. E. J. N. Ott was awarded i first prize, and Mrs. Hooker second for 1 proficiency in the game of the after- j noon Mrs. R. R. Hubbard received ! the consolation. A most appetizing. luucheon terminated the afternoon's enjoyment.
