Frightful Wreck aod Loss
of Life
Permits Meeting Trains to Crash
Into Each Other at Full Speed-
Holocaust of Passengers.
Topeka Kas., Jan. 2.���Rock Island
passenger trains Nos. 29 and 60, running between Chicago and El PaBO,
collided head-on early today at Voland,
Kas., 45 miles west of here. Several
persons are reported Injured or killed.
Kansas City, Kas., Jan. 2.���A telephone message from Harrington, Kas.,
near the scene of thc wreck, says that
the carB caught fire soon after the collision and that they were burned. Several persons are reported killed. One
r^iort places tho dead at over 30, but
there is nothing to confirm this.
Topeka, Kas., Jan. 2���Between 26
and 30 passengers, mostly Mexicans,
were killed, and as many more serious-
ly Injured in a head-on collision at
3:30 this morning five miles west of
Alva Vista, between passenger trains
No. 29, southbound, and 30, northbound,
on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
railway. The wrecked trains run between El Paso and Chicago. Most of
thc killed and injured were on the
souibbound train. It went into the
ditch and several of tbe cars caught
(ire. Many of the bodies of the victims were consumed by the flames.
The Injured are being brought to Topeka on a relief train. The early reports stated that tbe collision was
caused by the carelessness of the
agent at Volland.
Topeka, Kas., Jan. 2.���Officials of
tbe S. R. I. railway estimated tbe number of deaths at 30 and the injured at
40. Most of the dead are supposed to
be Mexican laborers who were ln tbe
smoking car on No. 29.
The baggage car telescoped tho
smoker and crashed down the roof of
the latter car. crushing out the lives
of the occupants, many of whom were
curled up in the seats asleep. The cars
caught fire soon after tbey struck and
five of the cars on No. 29 were consumed by thc flumes. I tis likely that
several bodies were burned lo asbes
and it may be a long time before a
complete list of the dead will be secured. At 9:30 a. tn. 10 bodies had
been taken from the ruins of the
smoking car. Nine of them were Mexicans. One was an American. Train
No. 29 bore the brunt of the collision.
The cars on No. 30 were not seriously
damaged and they were made up Into
a train and sent on south In place of
the destroyed cars of No. 29.
Blame for the collision seems to rest
on John Lines, the telegraph operator
ot Volland, who has diBapiieared. Orders had been Issued for Nos. 29 and
30 to pass at Volland. These orders
had been sent to Lines, who was Instructed to hold No. 29 there. He failed lo glvo the order to 29, and the latter train went by, meeting No. 30 a
few miles out of Volland. Lines fled
before the wreck occurred, after first
forecasting the impending collision.
Five minutes before the trains met be
wired the dispatcher as follows:
"No. 29 has gone and I have gone
also." Then he left hla key. With
this despatch lu hand there was no
possibility of averting the wreck.
Few tf any passengers on No. 30
were seriously hurt. Both trains were
heavy oneB, having 10 cars each, Including Pullman sleepers and tourist
cars and coaches, smokers and baggage cars. No. 29 Is known us the
"California Fas! Mall." It left Chicago at 8:30 Tuesday morning. No. 30
Is the opposite train and Is known ns
the "Chicago Fast Mall." lt loft EI
I'aso Monday night and was duo In
Chicago tonight. No. 29 was crowded
to the doors with passengers, but the
number of passengers on No. 30 was
not large. Relief trains and all possible succor wns sent lo the scene.
Superintendent O'Rourke of the division hurried with a special train from
Harrington, carrying all the physicians
he could gather there and picking others up along tho lino. A special medical train was sent from Topeka. Tol-
eurnm*s were sent abroad to various
places between here and Volland,
where the physicians wero picked up.
Twelve of the most seriously Injured
passengers were brought to Topeka.
Topeka, Kas., Jan. 2.���Operator John
Lines, who let No. 29 go by Volland,
has been captured und brought to tbe
gaol at Topeka.

Fierce Flames Spread
Widely at Midnight
Regros and Whites Involved in
Riotous Quarrel With Usual
Fatal Consequences-
New York, Jan. 2.���One of the worst
fires the firefighters of this city have
been called upon to contend with ln
some time started hi the tenement district on East Fifty-third street between
Ninth and Tenth avenues shortly after
1 a. m. today. The fire began in a livery stable at No. 429, spread to another stable next door and had reached
four adjacent tenements across the
street before lt waa brought under control. Lack of water pressure waa responsible for the spread of the flames
according to tbe fire chiefs. When the
pressure was strengthened the firemen
quickly controlled the blaze. Tbe loss
early today was estimated at $200,000.
Several persons were reported missing
and the police believe tbey have perished.
Of these are the husband and 4-year-
old child of Mrs. Kate Garland, who
lived at 428 West Fifty-third street,
across from where the fire started.
Mrs. Garland thinks that her husband
and child were burned to death, aa
they were still In the Garland apartments when she fled.
Fireman Alfred Kinscll, while fighting the tire from the roof of No. 427,
fell from tbe fifth to the fourth storey
when the roof of the building collapsed.
He was rescued al great risk by some
of his companions, but was severely
Injured and may die. The tenements
burned or badly damaged were Inhabited by nearly 600 people, most of
whom had retired when the fire broke
Close to the scene ot the fire is a
negro settlement and there were many
negroes in tbe big crowd that helped
to stop the progress of the fire. A
quarrel was started between a white
man and a colored man, and as the result of races taking sides a general
fl'hl was soon under way. During the
fishi Francis Shalnet, a negro 28 years
eld, was shot iu tlie head and probably
fatal y s.. muled. It took a score of
polk- nu:i with drawn clubs to stop
the fight and disperse the mob.
New York, Jan. 2.���(Later.)���A dozen persons were injured, 40 families
are homeless, 2000 persons were driven temporarily from their homes, 50
horses were roasted to death and property valued at $200,000 was destroyed
today in the worst early fire New York
has seen in many months. One big
tenement house at 427 West Fifty-
third Btreet and a large boarding stable
at 421 to 431 West Fifty-third street
were destroyed. Seven tenement houses were badly damaged. Lack of adequate water pressure Is said to have
been largely responsible for the ex-
lent of the fire.
Deputy Chief Binns who bad charge
of the firefighters declares that for
more than 20 minutes there could not
bo obtained from hydrants in the vicinity enough water to supply the boilers ot the fire engines. Had not one
of the big fire boats which drew Its
water supply from the Hudson river
came to the rescue the whole West
Side might have lieen swept, for evon
when thc water came to the hydrants
tho pressure was light and It became
necessary to work the engines In pairs
and triplets before enougb steam could
be obtained.
One ot the worst features of the fire
wae the tremendous crowd which gathered ln the streets around the burning district and the attending disorder
and lawlessness. So great was the
crowd that alt the police who had been
called to the scene had their hands full
hi preserving anything like order In
the streets, and for a time thieves
were given almost a free hand to loot
the burning buildings. There were
many excited chases over the roofs
after thieve* caught at work, but none
of them were captured. A woman
screamed that three negroes had tried
to rob her. One negro was seen running away and a group of white men
gave chase, firing as they ran. After
a chase of several blocks two detectives joined tbe pursuers and they began to fire. Not one of the shots
reached the mark, but the negro finally gave up and was bustled away to a
police station.

Halifax. N. S., Jan. 2.���New Year's
day marked the passing of the last vestige of imperial control at Halifax,
when the naval dockyard passed Into
tbe hands of the Canadian government.
Owing to downpour of rain the historic
ceremonies were robbed of their spectacular Interest. The formal transfer

supplies belonging to tbe marine department are now stored at the yards.

and Commander Spain will today begin an Inspection of the whole yard
and buildings, and this Inspection will
take some days to complete, probably

but will still be available for British
warships which visit this port.
Contest In Legislature.

Notwithstanding ths Bxhaustivs iii-
\eatigatitm of the _eleci committee of
the legislative assembly and the voluminous reporl ot their findings
therein respecting the sale of Kaien
Island to the Qrand Trunk Pacific, the
o[)|)osftion press persistently represents that the sum of $10.0011 ovefc*
and above the $10,000 paid to the government was obtained by sonic une
from the Orand Trunk Pacific, the insinuation being thai there was a
species of graft in which members of
the governmenl shared. While there
has never been any definite statement
to this effect by thc opposition prawn
the allegations have heen repeated In
one form or another till tlie brazen effrontery of lhe weo-begonc scandalls-
ers has become discreditable tn tln>
fourth estate. If it were simply a
question of Influencing a few votes iu
British Columbia these conscienceless
misrepresentations mlghl be permitted
to pass, but when papers circulate outside the province and foreign leaders,
who iiave no means of availing Ihem-
Belves of the facts, ure persistently
peppered with statements that are malevolently untrue, the credit of the
province is Injured and guiltless persons become the victims of cruel apprehension.
The facts are set forth with sufficient clearness in the reporl of the select committee, clause 8 of which reads
as follows:
"Your committee  find    thai    subse-
.nuent to the date of the acquisition of
Ke lands fn question   (Kaien  island).
\5 above-named James Anderson, art-
���W-'i-.N- himself ami  Peter Larsen, en-
'B m*\>y an option, or an agreement
��� ._> vith the officials af the a.
T. P. railway. No copy of the document was produced, but from the best
evidence obtainable your committee
rind that the option contained a proviso for the payment of $40,00-9 to Anderson and Larsen by the company upon the happening of certain contingencies. This option was not approved
by Mr. Larsen when he became aware
Of it and the same was cancelled by
hint within a few days after signature
and   without   being   consummated."
Referring to this option Mr. Hodwell
In his sworn testimony, published on
page civ, said: "1 said lo Mr. Hays,
The Ordor in Council has been passed,
the lands now belong to your company.
Nobody has any right to the property
but the CJ. T. P. company. You are
under no obligations and could not be
under any obligations to anybody in
Ihis matter. ... In bo far as Mr.
Larsen is concerned I am perfectly
certain that he does not care about
getting anything out of this transaction from you ... I have always
understood him to be of the opinion
thai these lands were to be obtained
and to be turned over to your company aud no stipulations whatever required of you, It being a matter for
you to consider. If you ihink there has
been any work done for you which
ought lo be compensated that  is for
you to consider, but Mr. Larsen does
not intend lo make any demand and
I am certain he does not care."
On page cv. the report says Mr.
Bodwell met Larsen In Spokane aud
Larsen said: "I won't take any money
out of the thing at all. I won'i take
any money. ... I did not go Into
the thing along those lines and I will
never take any of the money arranged
tor."   (My  Anderson.)
On page eclv. ho repeats the statement under cross-examination and
swears that Larsen said, "I will never
take a cent of the money and the first
lime you see Morse tell him so."
On page ccv., in answer to the question, "What became of the other |80,-
000?" (meaning the balance between
the $10,000 paid the government and
the $40,000 in the Larsen-Anderson op-
lion) he said, "The Grand Trunk Pacific  never paid it to anybody."
The Ualen island land sale needs
only to be studied in all its features
as they were brought out in the investigation conducted by Mi. Macdonald
and the complete vindication of the
government and every member of it
will appear at every stage. We make
these statements now and shall follow
the Investigation further. Nothing can
more quickly dispel the Illusions created by a fabricating press than thc light
of truth.
The resignation of \V. \V. B. Mclnnis
has. according to the press despatches,
been handed to the Laurler government and the cotnmissionershlp of the
Yukon is again vacant or will be ae
soon as the resignation of the ex-commissioner is accepted. Tbe Daily Canadian was inclined to he sceptical
thai the resignation would be tendered
until some definite settlement of Mr.
Mclnnis' status in the field of Liberal
politics In Hritish Columbia had boen
arrived at, but Information from a reliable source which has come to baud
leads us to the conclusion that his escape from the Yukon at tlte present
time is very welcome to tlte late commissioner. The disclosure of Mclnnis'
reasons for wishing a change in the
sphere of his operations need not be
slated now, but will be made known
during the progress of the campaign.
It will be sufficient to point out at the
present stage tbat Mr. Mclnnis has
never completed a single period of
parliamentary representation or served
out any term of office to which he
has been appointed.
He left the Dominion house when
but half his term had expired, after
having made himself obnoxious and
odious to the leaders of his own party,
and entered the arena of provincial
He did not remain long enough in
the local legislative assembly to give
any evidence of statesmanship and, in
fact, betrayed but little interest in the
���affairs of the country, as he had all
along been given to understand that
at a favorable opportunity the Yukon
commissionership would be tendered
him as a solatium for his wounded feelings over the treatment accorded his
father in his rude and abrupt dismissal from the lieutenant-governorship of
Hritish Columbia. There never was
any other reason advanced for the
choice of iMciunis, Jr., for this office,
and it is singular as well as significant
that the dismissal of the elder Mclnnis from his important post under
circumstances which in any other case
would have been considered vulgar in
the extreme, was, by the whole Mclnnis family, swallowed without audible protest.
W. W. B; Mclnnis went to the Yukon at a time when its administration
was rotten enough to smell to heaven.
Deputation after deputation had gone
to Ottawa to protest against the abuses
suffered by the miners, who were at
a disadvantage through leases, concessions, mining and water rights having
been granted to friends of the Ottawa
government. The outcry against the
administration of every department
was loud and boisterous and loyal.
Liberals were heard to declare that
the circumstances beggared description. The days of the small miner and
individual prospector were over so far
as the Yukon was concerned, and thousands of these left the country because
there was no opportunity for them to
share in Its enormous natural wealth.
A few favored companies have now the
whole vast, field under control. We
wish to point out thai the wonderful
achievements of Mclnnis in settling the
difficulties in the Yukon are by no
means to he attributed to the statesmanlike abilities of that gentleman,
hut to the complete exodus uf the miners whose rights were alienated and
who left the country in disgust. The
only source of irritation and trouble
for the Ottawa government being thus
removed, the commissioner has find
few more onerous duties than to play
bail fellow, which, if reports may be
credited, he succeeded in doing to an
extent which may yet prove the subject  of  judicial   investigation.
We wish further to point oul that
while the Liberal press has lieen lauding Mclnnis' splendid work in the Yukon, magnifying ihe Statesmanlike
qualities which he carried with him to
the discharge of his duties in ihe Far
North, and reciting the extraordinary
delicacy of a situation demanding almost superhuman qualities ln a commissioner, that heaven-born statesman
hus been transferred to another sphere
and the extraordinary circumstances
are to be obliged lo take care of themselves.
Tho savior of the Yukon, who served
only half a term as Dominion member
and less than half a term as local
member, has, at the expiration of less
than half the natural term of his office ln the Yukon, already deserted
his responsible post. Could anything
be more farcical? When Mr. Mclnnis
was sent to the Yukon It was represented that he was tired of the thankless task of sitting in the hard seatB
of legislative halls and was bloated
with the ambition to seize upon some
strategic point where he could display
his wonderful genius for organization
and administration. Now that he is to
return to thc provincial    arena   it is
proclaimed from the house lops that lie
is tired of the slow routine of an administrative office, that he loves a
tight, that be is happy only In tbe
arena of a campaign and on the open
floor  of  parliamentary  debate.
That he is rapidly writing himself
down in history as a jumping-jack politician would appear self-evident. VVHBt
single tusk has he ever coniplelefl**/*'
What one tiling has he done to a finish and done well? What course did
he ever set himself that he followed
lo Its end and left us a standing credit
to bis genius or ability? We challenge his promoters, or, since they
will not have It tbal he is to lead In
the provincial conflict, we ask bis
managers to answer these questions.
Mr. Mclnnis' mouth is his best recommendation to public favor. The gift
of the gab lie has to an unnecessary
and uncomfortable extent, but the solid staying power which, afler having
carefully analyzed a task, sets Itself
to the performance ol Herculean undertakings,  lie  has  not.
So much for the review. What of
the prospectus? Nothing much. He
will be the "mouthpiece" of the Liberal party, which in this case, as we
have all along contended, means the
leader. The ability to trick in figures
of speech, the plausible, smooth-sounding and gurgling phrase. Hie polished
vulgarity of the astute demagogue is
what be will bring to the. aid of the
Liberal forces in the province, and apparently they are flattering themselves
that these are all that are ne-cessary
lo deceive the electors.
The opposition organs are very badly
off for material out of which to manufacture arguments against the government. A few days ago The Canadian
made use of the expression, "That tlte
McHride government has been perfect
no one bas thought It necessary to
claim." This harmless and honest sentence is immediately seized upon by
the Vancouver World aud made the
text of an argument for the dismissal
of the government. Alack and aday!
We shall have to be careful how we
admit that the government is human
and not divine. Hy the way, the Laurier government is a peach. Smoke
some comfort out of that, Vancouver
"No alliance with those revolutionists who would destroy our system of
government and haul down our flag"
sounds mighty senteniious afler the attempt of Hilly Mclnnis to join the revolutionary Socialists at Nanaimo six
years ago. Since Hilly was unanimously rejected by Hie Socialists inos;
people will be asking if It was a caso
of "sour grapes."
An exchange says: "Government
bouse at Victoria burnt during its occupancy by Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes. Governmenl house at Dawson
burnt while occupied by W. W. U. Mclnnes. Hereafter Mclnnes risks will
be deemed extra-hazardous."
A dispute nrose in The Canadian office as to the correct way to spell the
name of Macdonald's new assistant���
whether Mclnnis or Mclnnes? After
consulting high authorities, we find the
proper way to spell the name is Me-
Constant Header���No; the Conservatives are not sending out of the province to import stumping machines. All
campaign speeches nre home made.
Thc Conservative committee meet.i
tonight to nominate a resident candidate
The Grits meet tonight to nominate
a cabinet minister for the year 1*1114.
A grafter by any other name would
still bo a thief.

Independent Voter    Arrays    Facta for
His Fellow Citizens.
To  the Editor of The Daily Canadian:   I am sending you the  following
fads for the electors to consider:
1. The McUride government is ac
knowledged hy fair-minded Liberals to
he the best government British Columbia has ever had.
2. Three years ago, when the Mc-
..ride government was elected, Ihey
took hold of a province that was bank'
nipt, with no credit, and dictated to by
the banks as to what way they should
borrow and the amount of interest they
should pay.
3. After three years the debts are
all paid and credit good all over the
world, and over |1,000,000 in the
4. The Liberals are now bidding for
the labor vote, ns usual, but 1 can re*
member being in Rossland at the time
of the strike, and the federal govern*
ment was asked to investigate In re-
gard to aliens working in the mines.
They sent a gentleman to Investigate,
who reported that there were aliens
marking in the mine, but the govern*
ntf&tt took no notice of the report. Capital ruled that time, aB it always does
wltb .the Liberals.
5. 'The McUride government are not
grafters, bul thc government has looked to the interest of the province every
6. Three years aso, if you will look
back, work in Mritish Columbia was al-
j most impossible for the laboring man
to get, but we find now that we can*
not secure white labor enough, and red
labor we do not want.
7. Times are booming under tho
McUride government. Capital is rushing Into the country. Every line ls
prosperous and we will have no change,
us I believe the intelligent voter knows
how to mark his ballot.
8. I nm an independent voter, who
has voted on both sides, but have no
study coming this time. I am going
to support the McBride government

Brilliant Musical and Social  Event of
New Year's Eve.
"Tho best dance music over heard
In Nelson" was the verdict of those
who danced the old year ont and the
new year In nt the K. M. II. ball Monday ovening. Local musicians it��>d
not resent the opinion. Long before
thc dance began the big audience that
filled the armory for the concert wore
convinced that the Polmatler Sisters
were all musical artistes of high rank.
The concert program waB all good
und the novel features, such as the anvil chorus nnd the xylophone solo only
emphasized the general merit.
Fully 200 peoplo remained for the
dance and nearly nil wero there to the
ond. Social pleasures for 1907 have
certainly had a most auspicious beginning in Nelson and the soldier boys
deserve thc gratitude of all.

Davis Booth, superintendent of the
curling rink, met with an accident
Monday night. While sprinkling one
of the rinks, walking backward, he
slipped and fell forward on his face,
cutting his forehead severely. The
wound required eight stitches to close.

in excellent condition and Is available
for play every afternoon and evening.

dainty refreshments and congenial
company all combined with the usual
faultless hospitality for which the Re-
bekahs are noted made New Year's
night, 1907, one to be remembered.

Fernie  Union Will Buy Up the Fernie
A deal is on by which the United
Mine Workers of America will take
charpe of the Fernie Ledger, says the
Free Press. Particulars of the transaction are not obtainable at present
but it is understood that a commiltee
appointment by District No. 18 at their
last convention has taken stock of the
plant and made a report favoring its
purchase at a figure which has been
mutually agreed upon by the vendors
and purchasers. If the report of the
committee is adopted by the locals the
deal will soon be consummated, probably early in the coming week. The
proximity of the provincial elections
may have its influence in hastening
the transfer.
