Ferguson, B. C, JUNE 26, 1903.

Heppner, Oregon, Destroyed Instantaneously and 500 People
Lose Their Lives.
Five hundred people lost their lives
ln a cloudburst that almost Instantly
destroyed the town of Heppner, Oregon, at 0 o'clock June 15. Heppner is
the county seat of Morrow county, and
had about 1,250 inhabitants.
All the telegraph and telephone
wires are down and no accurate information can be had, but the estimated loss of life is based on the most reliable reports received up to 12 o'clock
last night. A report from lone, 11
miles from Heppner, Is to the effect
that 200 bodies have been recovered.
A messenger who arrived at lone said
that a wall of water 20 feet high rushed down into the gulch in which Heppner is situated carrying everything
with it.
The Hood came suddenly, so suddenly
that the inhabitants wore unable to
seek places of safety and were carried
down to death by the awful rush of
_'-*ter. Almo.'t thn entire resident
portion of the town was destroyed, but
some of tho business part, which was
on higher ground, escaped. Huge
boulders weighing a ton were carried
down by the current and many people
were caught and crushed against the
rocky bluff. Early In the afternoon a
thunderstorm set many of tho streams
overflowing their banks ia a. short
time and bridges were swept away like
straws. As soon as the flood had subsided tho work of relief was begun by
the citizens of the town. Dozens of
bodies woro found lodged along the
bend of Willow creek, and in several
places they were piled over one another.
A late dispatch from Heppner says:
"Willow creek, which on Sunday
wiped out more than half of the town,
has shrunk to the size of an innocent
brook. About $500,000 worth of property is erased from the wealth of Morrow county.
"A rigid emergency government impresses able-bodied men into the work
of saving the town from plague-breeding disease.
"Several thousand poisons have arrived from the outside, and an army of
men and horses is turning over the debris. Women take charge of the bodies
as they are borne out of the wreckage
by the men. There is no time for ceremony in tho burials. The bodies are
shrouded in coarse white clothes,
placed In rough boxes, and hurried to
tbo cemeteries on wagons. Medicines
are not needed, neither aro physicians
nor nurses.
"The town must be cleansed to escape pestilence. It must have moro
men to help in cleaning, and provisions
to feed tho workers. Many families
are entirely destitute, all their worldly
possessions having beon carried away."

J. C. Malloy, Agent*
Servia Congratulated But Asked to Mete
Out Funlslunont to Thugs.
The new Servian King telegraphed
on the 17th inst. the following message
to be proclaimed to his subjects:
"Thanks to the favor of God and the
will of the people, I am called to tho
throne of my ancestors. I submit myself to the popular decision and today
ascend to the throne of Servia. I consider it to bo my first duty to thank
God for the favor accorded me, and I
express the hope that the people will
hail my succession as an event which
will give Servia an era of repose, progress and order. I give my word to ro-
spect the right acquired by all. I will
be the protector of the legality and
well being Of the peoplo. I call upon
the heads of the church and the military and civil functionaries to retain
their functions and execute them conscientiously. I declare that I banish
from memory all acts committed during the past 40 years bearing upon mo.
Every honest Servian will lind under
my reign protection for his moral and
material life. The motto of my dynasty
is 'For the 6acred cross and cherished
liberty.' It is with that motto assured
of the attachment of tbe army and
church that I aBcend the throne as
Peter I, king of Servia."
Following is the Russian note in
brief published in the official Gazette:
"The imperial government, while
hailing tho election of the now monarch, scion of a glorious dynasty, and
wishing all success, whieh he has so
well begun, to the supreme head of the
Servian people, whioh le ulliart to Jtut-
sia by ties of religion, can nevertheless
not refrain from expressing tho confident hope that King Peter will be ablo
to give evidence of his sense of justice
and firmness of will by adopting measures at the outset to investigate the
abominable deed that has been committed and mete out righteous punishment to those traitorous criminals who
have stained themselves with the infamy attaching to regicides. Of course,
the entire Servian nation or army can
not be hold responsible for tho crime,
which revolts public conscience, vet it
would be dangorous to Servia's internal peace not to cause expiation of tbe
crimes. Such neglect would inevitably
react in an unfavorable manner in tbo
relations of all the states with Servia,
and would create for Servia serious
difficulties at the very commencement
of tho reign of King Peter.
"Thoir Russian coreligionists offer to
God supplications for the repose of the
bouIs of King Alexander and his cod-
sort, who have met an untimely end,
and they invoke the blessings of the
Almighty on King Peter for the welfare and prosperity of the Servian people."

These Clever Entertainers Pleased a Ferguson Audience.
It was decreed that tho annual June
rains should bo delayed until Sunday
and Monday of this week and thus prevent many peoplo from attending tho
LaDell-Scott entertainment in Eagle
hall. Those who did brave the deep
mud and tho constant downpour of rain
wero amply rewarded by hearing the
best entortainment of tho kind that
has ever been given in Ferguson.
Without waiting to tell about the
many people of quality whom sho had
entertained in past days, as is customary with most entertainers. Miss
LaDell on stepping from her dressing
room opened the entertainment by a
most clever recital of "Tho Burial of
General Wauchoup." Her next selection was "The Dead Kitten," then
"Delsartie." Toward the end of the
programme she gave a selection called
"Laddie" that took her listeners by
storm and they showed an eagerness
that betokened a unity of interest as
word after word (lowed from the gifto'J
elocutionists' lips and the sad story was
unravelled. Hor next selection, entitled "Tho Old Days and the Now," was
specially written for her by J. W. Ben-
guugh. This number was probably the
of the evening, for though
the present at the Nettio L��� mostly on the audience  was not so affected as

FRIDAY. JUNE 26, 1003.
There is very little interest being
displayed locally in politics. Whether or not the people believe Hon.
Robert Green's election in this riding is a certainty we do not profess
to know, but anyway there is not
the usual interest that we have been
accustomed to see follow a dissolu
tion. Of course it may be thought
that the time is premature and they
are waiting; to see what material
will be presented by the opposition
in the form of a candidate.
In former elections this district
was included in the Revelstoke riding, now it is a part of the Kaslo
riding and it will naturally tike
some little time for tins electors to
adapt themselves to the new order
of things. Not until organization
is complete and it meeting is held
will there be much enthusiasm
In the Revelstoke constituency no
less than four names have been mentioned as probable candidates for
Ihe seat. First, and seemingly the
most popular man, among those
vhom we have heard mention the
matter, is Mr. Thos. Taylor, the
member who sat for this combined
riding in the last house. Mr. Taylor is, of course, a Conservative,
and was one of the three who were
elected in the last general election
as a parly man of the Conservative
faith. He has said that he would
prefer to drop out of politics for
the present, but there is a disposition of the party leaders to press
Mr. Taylor to accept nomination.
Another name spoken of by the
Conservatives is that of J. M.
Scott, president of the Revelstoke
association. J. M. Kellie is also
mentioned as the probable nominee
of the Liberals, and J. VV, Bennett
will probably enter the contest on
the labor or Socialist ticket.

The three claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to end; through which three leads pass the entire length, situated at the head of Lexington creek, in the Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenay, British Columbia.
These three claims are located on the western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form one
complete portion of Mineral land of about 150 acres. They ho east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
The group lies fn the "Sitting Bull" and "Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in that district, and work
already done on apjaeont extentions has given most satisfactory
results as to extent of ore bodies and increased values with depth.
The formation is slate and (schist, lying in an immense lime
dyke, and the cropplngs of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quartz, which gives assays from $8 up on the
Exploitation consists of two open cuts along the surface for a
distance e'f twenty feet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches in width. The value of this ore body was $25,110
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet it has Increased
to $40.80. To tap this ore showing and the massive iron capped
ledge close to which lt lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now ln a distance of 82 feet. Another .25 feet of crosscutting
should reach this ledge at a depth of about 125 feet. When (il feet
had been driven, an almost'solid body of iron ore three feet thick
was encountered in the tunnel lying against a wall of slate. A
sample at this point assayed $77.00 in gold, silver, copper and lead.
At a, distance of 14 feet from this lead a fine body oi ore has been
encountered which, when crossed, proved to be seven and a half feet
wide, carrying the finest looking mineral yet found on the property.
A third ledge which contains the richest ore and widest surface
showing, will be reached about July 1st. This ledgo when
encountered, will be from 12 to 15 feot wide and great results are
The property has an excellent surface showing. The average
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tinuancy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence of the surface judging from other properties in the near
vicinity, some of which are on the same lead and have developed
very rioh ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that the Lardeau Mines are as good as
any, if not the best, ln the vicinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be made dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end,
