M'GILL, April 16.—(Fire in tilt* coal storage pile under the trestle to the power house was discovered this morning. Steps were immediate ly taken to get at the seat of the trouble and stop it. Steam dippers were brought to the trestle and have since been engaged in moving the coal. Small patches of glowing em bers have been found and put out and some time tomorrow the main Are will be reached and extinguished. Damage from the fire will be small, due to the prompt discovery that was made. Spontaneous combustion at the bottom of the great heap of coal, containing thousands of tons, doubt less explains the fire. That discov ery was made at this time is consid ered particularly fortunate in view of the fact that heavy orders are now arriving and due to arrive which in a little time would have greatly in creased the amount of coal in the storage place and possibly kept the tire from discovery for some time longer. . In an Ely paper received here this evening the statement is made that under their contract the Hughes Con struction Co. is barred by the Step toe Valley Smelting k Mining from employing men now in th(r*employ of the company or employes of the com pany in the past from working for the construction company on the erection of machinery of the fourth unit of the concentrator. This state ment is pronounced absurd and an irresponsible jumble of facts. The construction company 1r barred from taking men from regular jobs which they now hold with the Steptoe. which is a natural provision for the protection of the latter, but there is no liar in any way to the Hughes Co. taking on such other men as they wish.

Cahill left Coppermines Thurs day afternoon in search of a stray horse. He was expected back before dark and when he did not arrive alarm was occasioned. It was thought, however, that he might have been overtaken by darkness in the rough country and that in preference to attempt to make his way home had concluded to camp out over night. When he failed to appear at the camp during yesterday morning, the alarm there became acute and three men left to search for him in the hills. Up to dark last evening they had failed to find trace of the miss ing ntan and the conclusion is now firmly fixed that he met with acci dent somewhere on Thursday after noon and has since been lying help t less in some out of the way spot where his search for the missing : horse led him and where his friend-* l have not yet found their way. The search will be resumed early | this morning with vigor and with | the hope that it will be found that some other cause than accident has delayed Cahill on his -trip. Airs.
