Without warning, without any toll-
matiun-ahatever, an enormous mass of
tuck at the top of lhe great mountain
nt lhe town of Frank, Alberta, broke
loose a lew niiuntes after 4 o'clock WetV
ntnday morning, ind with the roaring of
a volcano came sliding down tbe steep
mountain side with awful viloclty,crushing and grinding the life out of all lo Ua
way. Within a few seconds time nearly
twenty collages were burled beneath
this tidal wave nf death, and over
sixty people lost to life. A
reign of terror broke forth am 3*g the
miivivlngpiiiple of the town. The air
was filled with the dust of the grinding
limestone and In one or two cases a cottage was set on fire by being turned
over and throwing homing stoves Into
tbe debris. The, roar of the falling
masses of rock, the glaie of tbe flames
and the rising of the powdered dust natural y impressed tbe frightened snr*
vivors witb the terrifying Idea tbat the
lowu was tn the midst of a volcanic
eruption. There ras no halp, there wee
no knowledge, tbere was apparently oo
escape. With h'auched faces and quaking
limbs some of the terrified people sought
to put on enough clothing to protect
ihfin fiom the chilly air of night, while
| many ruabed forth la their nightdresses,
frantic wllh fright aud wildly appealing
for help aud protection.
What bad been a peaceful valley of
Industry and safely was suddenly transformed into a niovlug mass (>( rock that
swept death and destruction with It-
Down the precipitous sides nf the mountain towering nearly 5000 feet in the
clouds, came the vast masses of rock,
the force of gravity producing a speed
and power alan.-t inconceivable to the
human mind- There was no eiplosion.
There was uo throwing of rock and
dehrls lo tbe air. There was un auioke,
uo convulsions of the mountain or valley,

of rock, eiieuding nearly a halt a mite
Id length along the mountain side and
near the top of the diiay height, hatl
been forced loose by the action of
nature.* aod with awful, irrislstlble,
deadly force, moved from tbe bnseot the
mountain across lhe valley, spreading
out lo Ita 6etd of destruction like a fan,
until between two and three miles
In length had been covered by
tbla devesting mass. Houses that
stood close enough were completely
engnlfed and Ibe sleeping inhabitants
were buried -beneath a mass of cold, unfeeling rock to the depth nf 30 to 50 feel,
with the crushed aides of tha building

the case with tbe women, but the men

Morrlssey Miner's Obituary.
Morrissey Miner: With this issue,
Tbe Miner closes Its enrlhly career.
Tbere wan a good excuse fur its birth,
there is a legitimate reason for Itsileulli.
It came into tbe world tn meet lhe need
at thut lime, and it goes to ils death
because thai need bus lieen fulfilled, since conditions have changed
and the town in the vnlley Is
to be supplanted bv the town on tlie hill.
Wc have no regrets lo cvpress, no
kicks to make, no tears to shed. We
are in lhe newspaper business as a unit
ler of business, and prosperity ar ud-
versily aie accepted as Ihey are handed
out to us, without praise or condemns
lion. We desire to extend tn the people of Mmrissey nur thanks fnr their
uniform courtesy, atld lo those who as
sisied in the sttppnrt of lhe paper, evidence of nur appreciation. There art
cayuses in Morrissey the same as everywhere eke. Tbey have existed since
tlie origin uf lime,  and  no doubt  Ihey
will he fo I in heaven and hell us well.
.Some are so small lhat Tom Thumb's
vest would make nn overconl for them,
and so mean lhat it pole cal would refuse io associate with iticill. lltlt this
element is comparatively small. The
word is full of true, honest, whole hearted individuals, with whom it is a plea-
fiue to mingle. Morrissey has men ol
that stripe, and we have enjoyed knowing them and hope thai tlieac-fjuninlimce
may continue.
We desire In add it word regnnlitiH Ihe
gentleman who has been editor nf lhe

Kockendoif He has been with us for
the past six years, assisting iu the publication of the Wardner International,
Marysville Tribune, Cranbrook Herald
aud The Miner, of the latter be has
had complete charge during ils life, and
the results have been eminently satisfactory to us and the public. We bate
In lose Matt, but he has now on nppor
(unity to escape from the newspapei
business and he intends to take advantage of it. We have been in the business 25 years, and in all (hat time we
have never known a belter, more reliable and efficient newspaper man ami
priuter. With a keen sense of the responsibilities of the position, a ready
writer, a rapid woiker and all round
good fellow, he would have made a
great success in the newspaper business;
but success in this line is not attractive
to a young man desirous of accumulating bis share of this world's goods, and

The Commission Grants Only Three Out of
Nine Applications.
The license commissioners met last
Friday evening ut Fernie to consider
ihe nine applications for hotel licenser,
ut the new town of Morrissey Mines.
When the cum mission con veiled Ihe
court room was crowded wl-.li interested
parties anxious to know the result p.
After a little tliaciisalon, the commissioners retired for un hour to deliberate,
When they returned, they am minced
the following result:
11, I, Stephens. Alexander hotel,
W. ll. G'Hioiig, Windsor hotel, granted
Chan, Farrell, Western hotel, granted
c. j. higby, iucbunge hotel, withdrawn,
T H. Moiloii, Miners hotel, refused.
Andrew Johnston, Royal hotel, refined
David Clark, CI irk hotel, withdrawn.
Jules Htiroli Morrissey hotel, withdrawn,
Spenee Lynn, I'nion hotel, withdrawn,
It was 1111 nmi need by the commission-
era tltnt In till probability there would
not be more lliuu four licenses granted
in the new tuvu, unless there was an
extraordinary growth, as ihey considered four good hotels ample for the needs
of the place for some lime tn come. The
three licenses granted speak well for the
commissioners, as they nre to men who
will put up good hotels and maintain
first-class places, II L. Stephens la one
of the best kotvu hole! men in the (lis
trict. William Canong has heen manager
ofthe Koyal hotel at Ferule for several

a.t well he mfcicxeil to Chilians hound
up with eastern Canada, If we could
make a deal with China I'd favor it.
China would give US a market for mu
lead aud a tariff wall to protect us as
high as we wanted, There is no sense
iu the way the government lias treated
us and thrown ut down. We have worked the tariff question up ami had nol
only the whole province but Manitoba
and the territories behind us. The mat
ter was eiplained fully to the govern-
inenl, they cannot say Ihc evidence was
not forthcoming and In good time before,
the budget was made up this year. I'm
nick of the whole business and see no
daylight ahead for this section of the
province. We have not been able to
get simple justice in the tariff matter,
We are taxed up to the neck for the
benefit o( eastern Canada nnd pa)
through the nose for running the whole
dominion yet wheu we ask for consiilera
tion at the hands of ibe government as
we have been lining for the past two
years aud more we arc lirst put oil' with

"Whnt do you think of the outlook
for It-all?" a«ked the reporter.
*'Il» hard to say." replied Mr. Cronin
"1 think it will stay up, ami ir we hatl
got the Canadian market wltb even prevent prices. 1 would have taken chances
and opened up the St. Kugene at once,
You i-ee we could then have looked
ahead with some certainty aud made our
coutraets for the season. As It is, to In-
ef u«S to us, London lead must rench
/ 15 snd stay around that figure firmly
before we would think of commencing
operations at the mine. Tue American
lead trust can do pretty nearly as it likes
on the London market and can and I
think does, move the ^notations up and
dowu-at Will, just to suit the situation
There is some hope however, in this
lhat lead is gelling scarce, there is tni^li
ty little stock on hand and not much
coming up comparatively speaking',
The consumption is Increasing Although
/lue ia being substituted for paints. [1
tost more to be sine, but il makes a
much better article. Outside of this feature the general consumption of lead is
steadily growing so that / 13 in London
this eOturner is no dream but a reasonable possibility the wny things are going." .
''And if lead reaches / 15. whnt then?"
"I think," said Mr, Cronin, n 11 dive-
ly, "UiHt we might then open up the
mine. Not full force, you understand.
but we'd start work."
"A Slocan mine owner said lhe other
day tbnt lie 'believed silver would reach
60 cents thia summer. His statement
waa not credited here. What do you
aay about it?"
"Why, I think the outlook for silver
ia brighter and more hopeful than it has
been for a long time, Its ever so * much
better than that of lead. A deal of
money has lieen spent by the silver
party in the United States to bring
about a conference in Mexico this summer of all tbe nations Interested in
silver. Thousands of dollars bave been
expended to bring ntitnit this conference
•ml 1 think it is sure to eventuate. They
propose to make a silver ratio of 30 to 1
or 34 to 1 and if it is decided on I think
thr (.'»ufereuce will be strong enough to
sustain it.   If It is 34 to 1  silver would

so derelict iu tbeir duly to one of tin-

What can the leaders of ibe governmenl
