Tho returns of tho Saskatchewan

However, the latest reports now
give bcott iji» seals and Haultain 14,
although several protests arc to be..
entered and tne Uniii result mny be
iluterent. for instance Weyburn,
which went Liberal, on account ot
the negloct to swear tne deputy returning officer. In Loydmlnster tne
'successiul government candidate is
a tew Inches withing Alberto. There
ure also many cases ut corruption
and irregularities.
iNcxt lo tue parly result is tlie defeat ot the two cabinet niinisieis—
I aider and Motherwell. Turgeon
was also defeated in Prince AlDert,
but lous Ouck Lnse. Tnis is u severe blow tu Scott and is the greatest satisfaction tu the Provincial
Highters. Evory kind of scheme was
adopted by the Scott followers to
win and the short tune allowed gave
the Opposition little time tu ualK
them. However tne Opposition lias
reason tu fed that they totight a
guud light, since with a Govern-
ment redistribution that brought in

"Nothing but scandal," mourns
the Albertan in reference to the
Ames' charges. Then it suys Clifl-

post. No—there Is "nothing but

Elections this fall
Ottuwn, August 20.—The certainty
that the Federal elections will be

it is the universal conviction here
thut the campaign will be Iwgun
nfter the garnering of the harvest
und the elections brought on tu
wnrds the Inst of September or
early in October.

Bad MINK EXPLOSION
Seventy  miners entombed at
Wigan. England
Wigan, Aug. 19. An explosion oc-
cured yestoruny In the tanypole coul
mino, belonging tn Messrs. Pearson
uiul Knowlos. Tho head nour ami
ventilating apparatus of the mine
whs destroyed mul about 70 of tlie
miners aro entombed, only the
smallest hopo is entertained of saving tli<> entombed miners.
Temporary repairs tn the machinery enabled tlm ruscuers tn descend
Into the adjacont workings, only to
tind their wuy blocked liy wreckuge
mid pusses. Three dead miners were
found and one terribly mutilated hat
still alive and several iload ponies.
Four of the miners escaped aiive. A
number of tlie rescuers were uvcr-
come by tlie. fumes and brought tu
the surface in mi unconscious cundi-
tlon. A frenzied crowd uf relatives
antl friends nf the entombed minors
surrounded the   pit mouth     tonight
nxlously awaiting news.
The search parties this afternoon
were driven hack by lire. A number
>f the rescuers were overcome by the
fumes frum the burning eual but
were safely brought to the surface,
lt will be impossible to nmke a thorough examination of tlie workings
until tlie tiro has been subdued mid
the nir purirted.
Wigan, Aug. l'J.-—Later-It is not
believed a single man uf the 70 miners whn were entombed by an explo-
ilon which occured yesterday in the
Maypole coal mine here, survived
the disaster. The four men reported rescued yesterday were engaged
in an udjolnlng building. The ven
tilating tan which was put out of
order by tbe explosion was repaired
this morning and the mine having
been cleared of trasses, the rescue
party  again descended.
The sight was horrifying. Not far
from the bottom of the shaft 18
bodies were found all frightfully mutilated, leys and arms being blown
off nnd bends battered almost beyond recognition,
The manager nf the mine declares
that between sixty and seventy men
were underground at the time of the
explosion and that there is no hope
that any one will be brought nut
alive. The women and children,
however, who remained at the pithead all night refused tn leave until
the bodies of their dead are brought
to the surface. Nothing else witl
convince them of the hopelessness of
waiting.

The
Aurora   Mine
Now being rapidly developed—Will install a
live drill compression
plant
Developments are showing in tne
Aurora mine at ivtoyle, tliai are sat-
isittetory ami work is progressing at
't goott rate.
'iiie Aurora Mine is situated un the
west sate ol iVInyte Lake, and is sup
posed io ue an extension ol tne la-
mulls Mt. Kugene and Lake tshnre
mines which are situated un the
east side of tlie lake. Tlie connecting huh between these mines, is being sought lur hy a company known
ns the Cambrian Mining Company,
who have constructed a cassion irom
the surface to the bottom uf Lake
Moylu, who are now sinking n shatt
through the rock bed of the lake tu
the ore bodies whicn have been discovered by means of a diamond
drill. From the extensive and
thorough manner in which the prospecting has been done by the various
mining companies interested, it is
mly fair to presume that the nre
bodies on the east side of the lake
in the rtt. Kugene mid Lake Shore
extends under the lake and into the
Aurora property, on the west side of
Moyie Lake.
The Aurora property, consists of
live claims, and were located in
18117, by 0. 0, Johnson, Carl Neit-
,ell, and Captain Ira B. Sanborn.
The locators found float, then
mull stringers of ore. These stringers were followed, by means uf a
tunnel, for a distance of BOO feet,
with ore, varying in widih frum
six to eighteen inches. Cioss-aits
were driven to determine the wid tli
uf the vein. A shaft was sunk tn a
depth nf 170 feet, and connected
with No. 1 tunnel, Another slant
was sunk, some distance to the
south and west, and is down li>0
feet, drifts have been run Irom the
bottom uf this shaft for a distance
uf 50 feet in search of the hanging
wall. The oro body has been found
oy cross-cuts tu be about 14 feet in
width, with a pay shoot of six to
eighteen inches uf clean ore.
A second tunnel has been started,
which will have a vertical depth of
170 feet below No. 1 tunnel, und
will be connected by an up-raise
with the upper tunnel, also by drifts
with the shafts alreody duwn. This
will give excellent ventilation to the
mine.
The ore body, as estimated, has a
width uf 14 feet, with a pay shoot
uf clean ore of from six inches to
two feet. The entire vein consists uf
cuncentrating ore. There seems tu
he a fault betweeu No. 1 and No. 2
tunnel, with ore abuve the fault and
below, its extent will be demonstrated by drifts Irom the up-raise as
developments progressess.
The clean ure carries values in
lead and silver. The cuncentrating
portion of the ledge matter runs luw
in lead and silver. Assays from the
clean ore gives 55 to (15 per cent in
lead,   and 12 to 14 ounces in silver.
The Aurora mine is being operated
by a Moyie syndicate, composed of
local business men and miners, who
have a linn faith in the future prosperity of the mine. The new company have purchased a live drill compressor plant which will be installed
hy tbe tirst of the coming month.
Then the lower tunnel will be driven
with a,I possible despatch to where
the connections nre to be made with
the tipper tunnel and shafts.
In IKilfi, Captain Sanborn built a
small steamer, to be used on Lake
Moyie, fur tuwing ore laden scows
from the mine to the railway nn the
east side uf the lake. The former
owners were ever confident of striking a large body of ore, as is the
present company, Let us all hope
that their confidence is nut mis
placed, and that the Aurora will be
a mine second to none iu the Kootenays.
United Church Entertainment

Dear Mr. Fink; li
In view uf the prompt and geu-
erous way in which you as Mayor
and the Citizens of Crnnbrook generally came to the assistance of tbe
sufferers by the five at Fernie and
vicinity I would like to convey to
you and to the ueoplc uf your city
the grateful thanks of my Colleagues
and myself on behalf of the Prov-
nee uf British Columbia.
On all sides there have bem words
of enmmendutinn fur the attitude of
Cranbrook in a most trying situation
and I therefore cannot allow the
occasion to pass without this expression of thanks.
Believe me,
Yours sincerely,
Richard  McBride.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT
The Epworth League Tennis Tournament will commence on September
1st at the court on Armstrong Ave
nne. Kntries for the following
events may be made to President 11.

end of this month. A small entrance fee for those wishing to play
will be mude fnr each separate event.
Ladles singles, Cents singles,
Ladies doubles, Cents doubles, Mixed
doubles,   and  linal doubles.
Nn entries will be received after
September 1st,   and the management
will lie obliged if all intending to
take part will give in their names at
once. This course applies to the
members of the club only.
If the visit of Senator Teniph'tnan
had any political significance it is a
'matter ot congratulation that it was
I apparently sunk in the public inter
est. ( ertaia matters had, iu the
'interest of the city, to be brought
[beforo the Senator who is head oi
'the department of mines at Ottawa
'and ih this both parties laid down
'political differences and wont straight
'for their objective letting politics
[slide iu order to further the more
vital and local issue.
At a meeting nf the Board of
Trade held in the Cuuncil Chamber
Senator Templeman after hearing
Joseph Ryan give some uf his ex
'pertences in the St. Mary's valley
[country and listening with every
I show uf interest tu facts concerning
[the iron deposits on Bull river and
'linker mountain and the galona mid
'gold cupper uf the tipper part of the
; rttf Mary's promised, if men and
'money could be found, to send in
[the Geological rturvey party here In
the early future. He gave the must
unqualified promise to see that this
was dune. He nlsn promised tu
bring the matter of having Cranbrook elevated from a customs sub
port to the dignity ot a port of entry, and also the matter uf the Fed
ernl building before the minister responsible fur those things. Mr.
Urock, tho bead of the Geological
Survey department, said that the
party would soon be with us, and
that the district offered solutions uf
geological problems that it was essential tn have settled between them
and tho corresponding department nf
the United States working in tlie
Cutler d' Alenes country to the south
nf us.
The net result uf the visit may bo
summed up in saying we are certain
to have the district carefully exam
ined by the members of the Geologl
cal rturvey department. This may
uut convey a great deal nf meaning
to some people, bat those who
kitiow anything about minerals know
how vital it is to have reliable data
from independent sources as to geo
logical conditions before mining can
be undertaken with any certainty o'
profitable working. 'I'he timber will
not lust always, and tbe time Is
now when we must seek by all means
to have matters in train tu take up
the exploitation of uur mineral
wealth that lies at uur doors.
The rtenutor was entertained to a
most successful banquet at the
Cranbrook Hotel at which some
llfty sat down. It was strictly nnn-
pnlitical, and frum first to last
there was tint a semblance of a discordant note. Once again ('ran
brook proved itself a city where all
parties und every man stands with
his fellows, solidly, shoulder tu
shuulder, where the thing to be done
or carried is fur the benefit of the
city or the locnlity, C. T. Hogers
made a must excellent chairman,
brilliant, tactful and witty. rtenutor Templeman delivered a capital
speech ami touched delicately on the
legislation passed during the last
session at Ottawa. .1. A. Harvey,
K. C, was at his best in his address tu the toast of British Columbia. Joseph Ityan tried bis wings
in oratory on the mining question
He waH followed by J. F. Huchcroft.
in a strong plea for a visit from the
Geological Survey department. Dr.
King, M.L.A., gave a brilliant review of the salient points of Canadian history. All wus over nt about
2 a.m., and the true success of the
banquet was appreciated to lie more
in the cordial spirit born nf it than
of anything in the eating, drinking
or oratoriiil line that dignified it.
Tlie usual monthly social of the
Rpworth League will give way to
the united entertainment in tbe Pres
hyterian schoolroom on Tuesday
next, when songs mid readings and
a lantern exhibit will be given. The
aim is to have every church take
some part in the program, the proceeds will be in aid' of the Lord's
Day  Alliance funds.

To prevent Mining Disasters
Three thousand two hundred nun
irs lust their lives last year by accidents under ground, hundreds were
injured, and heartache* and hardships were brought to tlmse affected.
The eual mines of Alberta are already employing many men. With
the advent nf railway facilities new
mines will be developed and thousands more will go down to mine the
fuel which has been so conveniently
distributed throughout the province.
uaws regulating the working of
mines must be framed and executed
ntelllgently In order that our re
cord of disaster from accidents may
not be attributed to Ignorance or
net: leet.
A convention uf experts on the
prevention nf mining disasters is to
he held in Pittsburg next, month.
Britain has gone into the question
/cry thoroughly, but today's reports
of the Wigan disaster show that fatalities are bound to occur. Sometimes these disasters are due to cure
lessness on the part of the men them
selves, but very often Ignorance elth-
ir .ai the part of tlie miner or the
officials, is responsible for death or
property   loss.

Kor bc«t results it is necessary to
have on the porch a vine of some

foliage is necessary for two purposes
it shades tlie hive, making it comfortable for tlie bees. The direct
rays of the sun, shining through tbo
glass would kill the larvae and drive
tbe bees from the hive. The bees en

Try Preventics, At My Risk
With Book on Colds.
Just to prove merit—to show you how
quickly Preventics can and will check colds
or the Grippe—I will mail you free on
reiiuest these samples and my bunk. Simply
address — Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis.
Preventics are thoroughly harmless little
Camly Cold Cure tabids. No Quinine, no
laxative, nothing sickening whatever.
To check early Colds or Grippe with "Preventics" means sure defciit for Pneumonia.
To slop a culd with I'revenlics is surely
safer than to let it run and lie obliged to
cure It afterword. Preventics will however
reach a deeply seated cold, But taken
early—nt the sneeze stage—they break or
head off these early colds. That is surely
belter—that is why tliey ore named "Preventics." Promplness however is all-im-
porlont. Promplness in llie use of Preventics may save half your usual sickness.
I'Vverishmss, night or day, Willi child or
oilnli, suggests the need of Preventics.
