Relic   of   San   Francisco's    Earthquake
and Fire.
One of the most interesting relics of
the conflagration lo be found anywhere
in San Prancisco. and one that repre
Bents a loss of many thousands of dollars to the United railroads, says the
San Francisco Chronicle, consists of various musses of melted coin that the
street, railway company recovered from
iis safes in the Itialto building. The
blackened masses of precious metal are
uow stored In the ofllce of Thornwell
Mulialy. assistant to the president, at
Oak and Broderick streeis, and afford
an object of much curiosity to visitors
.lust what will he done wllh the melted
coin is a problem that is worrying tho
Officers and directors of the company,
.\111llaly is hopeful lhal the treasury do
paitment can be Induced to make some
ruling that will enable the company to
recover something like the coin value
of the money. Otherwise, should lho
company succeed iu recovering only
Ihe bullion value. It will suffer a lost*
Of  many  thousands of dollars.
There are Others.
A well-known Winnipeg young man
who went west a short time ago began
to pay considerable attention to a
young married woman. The husband's
objections were disregarded by both;
but Instead of taking a horsewhip io
tlie young man, the husband wrote to
the bank's officers at headquarters. The
Officials sent an officer out to InvesM-
gate, and as a result there is a tine
young hank clerk looking for another
job and a young wife in unavailing
tears. The moral is set somewhere between the lines.
English   Tailor   Describes   Changes   In
Styles ol Uniforms for U.
S. Soldiers.
New York, July 111���Thu Worlsl Ihis
morning nays:
"George II. Winion. Ihe English tailor, of No. 'yj Cousllt street, Loudon, who
was summoned here hy Secretary Tall
to remodel the uniforms of the Anss-rl-
can soldiers, sailed for home yesterday
on the Oceanic. He has been liberally
criticized, but he left wllh feellugs un-
" 'When I cams' here. I expect.-si antagonism,' salsl lu-. 'hut I am happy to
say 1 have iisst met with any. I think
there was an Idea that I was to lake a
(ssntracl for making uniforms, bul my
wuole Idea was lo cut designs. If England can learn anything from a Burope-
an tailor, as well as from a painter or
an architect, she always does BO.'
"Mr. Winton has been at worlj ton
days lu the war department, holding
many conferences with Actlng-tletu-ral
0, Humphrey, quartermaster-general.
Before sailing yesierday he spent several hours with Qeneral Humphrey iu
the army bullsliug lu the While hall.
" 'With the exception ssf a few
ohangee, all my designs have heen nc-
���s-pts-sl.' said Mr. Winion. 'For one
thing, the United States cavalry nia'y
look forward lo open vests. All Ills1
uniforms will have a belter appearance
They would be smarter ansl more com
I'-ii'tublc. The Irsstisers uf llle cavalry
wis, he cut a little larger and fuller
around lhe thighs. The general lines
of the uniforms, colors, designs and
trimmings would he very much Ihu
same ns al present, bul such changes
.ts w.-re made are In lines around anil
over Ihe thighs. They will make Ihu
men look more soldierly in servloe, in
fatigue duly ami on dress parasls-. There
will lie 110 change In lhe campaign lust.
i think both officers and men would be
plssusetl. There Is nss reason why a
great country like this should slivss hei

result of drinking whiskey. He was

Socialist Literature.
Speaking of ihe proposed movemenl
In l.aslysnillh of both parlies running

Western Clarion, the. Soolallel organ,
"Just  what the Socialists  havo   al
ways contended the old parties would
do when It comes to a show-down���and
also the very thing the Socialists want
to see done���the next campaign ln
Newcastle will be capitalism vs. Soda!-
isni���only one issue. That Comrade
Williams and his revolutionary slde-
lackers will have to light to win, do
well Informed olsss-rvcr will deny. A
thorough knowledge of ihe capital iiosh-
es, politicians, liangeis-on, submerged
lenth and scalawags is sufficient to
awaken the Socialist to whal he Is up
against,  uut the regenerating Influence
and efforts of a revolutionary proletarian will prove equal to the occasion
Ami despite the damnable luetics now
being pracllced nn the coal miners In
Czar Dunsmulr'S domain, the Socialist
party will triumph."
King's Speech Irritates Members of the
British House.
London, July in,���irritated by the
lack of opportunity to sliscuss Scottish'
QUssstlons i.i lhe house of commons, and
somewhat Jealous of the promises of
greater local control of local affairs
made to Is-eland In the king's speech at
the opening ssf parliament, the Scottish
members have selected Mr. i-*erle, Liberal member for lhe northern division
of Aberdeen, to introduce a bill providing for tlie establishment of a parliament for Scotland. The bill, the text
of which waH issued loslay. provides for
purely Scottish legislation. I'erle will
be eligible to membership, and the executive power will continue to be vested in the crown.
The bill also provides for the revival
of the old Scottish privy council as It
existed prior lo the union. II is pro
[Kised that, the Scottish parliament shall
have power to Impose taxes, except
customs and excise duties, lhe king to
bo represented by a lord high commissioner and Ihe seat of government to
be at Edinburgh.
Outside of the friends of Mr. Perle.
who favor local self-government for all
nationalities of tin- United Kingdom,
the project is not taken seriously.
There Is no slemanil among the people
of Scotland for a local parliament.

New Mexican City a Second San Francisco
Shocks, Rains and Electrical Storms
Cause a Panic of Consternation.
Albuquerque, N. M., July 19.���Refugees in large numbers are arriving
here from Socorro, New Mexico,
where great damage has been wrought
by a succession of daily earthquakes
since July 2nd. In that time not an
hour has passed without one or more
quakes. The centre of the disturbance
is a zone 'io miles long by about IU
miles wide, running from the Ladrone
mountains southeast through Socorro.
At San Antonio, on this side of the belt,
the shocks have been barely felt. Each
one is preceded by a loud rumbling like
heavy thunder, which can be heard approaching from the northwest before it
reaches Socorro.
Senator Baca, of Socorro, until recently district attorney, Is here with
his family. He says that jieople are
leaving on every train, and those who
cannot ride on the railroad are leaving
by wagons. About 2,000 persons are
camping out in tents, and no one dares
to go Indoors. Practically every residence und business block In the town
has been damaged. There has been
much distress among the people who
ate camping ln the open, as heavy
rains have fallen ln the last two days,
one being the heaviest for fifty years.
Most of the people ure gome to El Paso,
although many are coming to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The shocks
generally occur as short, sharp jerks,
the ground seeming to slip violently.
It Is believed that the adjustment of
rock strata in the rugged Ladrone and
Magslalena mountains is the cause of
ine continued shocks. Provisions are
growing scarce, and real distress is
feared for the refugees.
"The noise and quukes are frightful,"
said Mrs. J. J. Leeson, a refugee from
Socorro. "I have ex!>erienced earth-
siuakes at l.os Angeles and San Francisco, but never anything so sickening
as these prolonged rocklngs and jerk-
Ings of, the earth at Socorro. Water
placed ln a bowl will show continuous
vigratlons between the lighter shocks,
showing that the earth ts never still
Not a house In town is safe to enter,
and walls topple wllh each recurrence
of the tremor."
El Paso, Tex., July 19.���Socorro, New
Mexico, south of Santa Fe, has been
severely damaged by nn earthquake
Fifty-two shocks have beeu felt since
Sunday morning. The court house Is
wrecked. The building of the School of
Mines is cracked, and nearly every resl
dence in the city Is destroyed or much
damaged. The town Is largely built of
adobe or of brick. The Santa Fe rail
rotul has sent box curs to Socorro to
take the people away, and thus num.
nave alreasly lied to other towns. Huge
bouhlers have been carried down on the
russroud track, and trains cannot enter
the town. They stop several miles oul
side lhe place. The wsiter In lhe hot
springs near Socorro has Increased several degrees in temperature, and ihe inhabitants fear that the extlncl vsilcuno
ts'ti miles from lhe town will become
active again. The entire surrounding
country hns fell Ihe shocks, and much
damage has been done, esjieclally ut
San Murclal and Magdulena.

Itnilwawy Company,    accompanied  by
Blr Wilfrid Laurler snd Mr. Charles H.
Hays, president of the O. T. P., were

T. P., has been contradicted. Sir
Charles Is not coming wesl. and when
the other members of the party arrive
they will not go further norlh than
Vancouver. Extensive preparations
were under way for their reception al
various points on the northern coast.
(Jwlng to the fact that there is no res
Ident accommodation at Prince Rupert
as yet. the Grand Trunk Pacific has
leased the old hospllu! building at Met-

Experienced   Miners Make   Discoveries
on Portland Canal.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, July 19.���"The mining outlook In the Portland canal and Stewart
river district is very bright," says C. H.
Dickie, of Duncans, who returned from
a trip to that section last evening. "At
that point there are about 150 prospectors ln the hills, and practically every
one has a claim, and on the whole, there
Is a very hopeful feeling throughout
the entire camp. The prospectors are
for tbe most part experienced men, having been in Mexico, Arizona, Kootenay
and Slocan, and they say that the surface showings are better than any they
have ever seen. The ore is mainly galena, showing very rich in native silver
and copper."
H. M. S. Shearwater, which left this
port on Saturday last for Behring sea
on her annual pelagic sealing patrol
cruise, relumed to port here yesterday
morning with her commander. Captain
Hunt, .seriously ill. It was found upon
arrival at Comox that Captain Hunt
was too ill to proceed on the voyage
north, and the sloop of the ward was
returned to Victoria, where Captain
Hunt was removed to the hospital. It
is not expected that he will recover ic
time to permit of his going north with
lhe vessel, and a new start will probably be made on Monday with the Shearwater in command of her navigating
officer, L. Cutkerwln.
Civil War In  Russia Apparently  Inevitable.
St. Petersburg, July 19.���The belief
that the adoption by the lower house of
parliament today of a proclamation to
the nation on the agrarian question will
precipitate the long brewing conflict
and plunge the country into civil war
is profound. All hope of reconciliation
between parliament and the government is vanishing, and the government
Is evidently preparing to tak eup the
gage of battle when it is formally
thrown down. At the council held at
Peterhof last night the camarlllo came
out strongly ln favor of dissolving parliament, but, according to the best Information, the emperor hesitated, and
at the moment of adjournment refused
lo agree to a dissolution, though his
final decision was postponed.
Austria and (lermany. according to
the official Russia, have agreed on
sending troops across the border to aid
In suppressing an agrarian uprising If
.the RuBslan government should formally request them to do so. The Bosnia's
announcement created a tremendous
sensation. It is stated that the decision
of the two neighboring powers was
based on the fear that the execution of
the principles of the confiscation of
property in Russia would constitute a
danger lo them.
Imports and Exports.
Uaahlngton, July 19.���A Btntement
Issued today by the department of commerce and labor says the foreign commerce of the Unlled Slates In Ihe (Iscal
year Just ended aggregated $2,970,0110.
If Ihe trade with Porto Rico and Hawaii, which was Included In the foreign
commerce prior to the'.r annexallon.
wore added, the total would be materially increased, ami would exceed three
billion dollars. Both imports an ex'
ports exccesl those of any earlier year.
The total Imports were ��1.220,000, and
exports $1,744,000.

Short Items of Interest Complied from

Another rich body of ore has been
discovered near the great Britannia
mine Just north of the city of Vancouver. The vein Is reported to be 20 feet
In width, and gives gold values In assays of over $10 to the ton, with added
copper values of over $100 per ton. The
veins were discovered by an old Koot

New Westminster Is having the usual
difficulty In getting the shopkeepers
half holiday. Some rancorous things
have been said by parties on both sides

themselves will do the counter-skipping
for the half day.
Major-General Sir Frederick Carrlng-

President and   Managing   Director   o*
Fair Have Other Vtews���Race
Track Beet in Interior.
The prospect, of a lacrosse tournament as an attraction for the Nelson
fair is attractive, but the idea will
probably not be carried out, as ft would
involve too great an expense.
J. J. Malune, president, and F. A
Starkey, managing director, were seen
this morning und asked their views on
the subject.    Mr. Malum- said:
"It would be a good scheme as nn attraction, but it would cost far more
than we can afford for any one feature
of the program. It Ib not practicable to
raise money for the general fund by
canvassing and then to ask for special
subscriptions for laurusse. And the as
socintfon' certainly can't afford to pay
$1,200 for lacrosse games.
"I don't think it is necessary. Ross
land has a good lacrosse club, and their
people are enthusiastic about it. They
are tied with Nelson so far ihis season
With both teams at full strength thej
are probably very evenly matched. I
think that a couple of games between
the two would be more interesting to
tiie Nelson public than a match between Lethbrldge and Cranbrook, even
ii It were the final game for the chnm
pionshtp of a league.
"The expense ol bringing over tlie
Rossland team will be far less thun
thut of bringing one team from Easl
Kootenay and another from Alberta.
"The work on the race track Is go
ing ahead. Yesterday the city engineei
was down, nud gave us the proper levels at the turns and for the grading.
Warden Lemon is having the work done
very thoroughly, and is making a good
job of It. He assures us thut it will be
Completed by the 1st or September.
"When it is completed the track will
lie easily the best In the interior of
British Columbia, and will be a valuable
permanent asset to the association and
to the city,"
Captain McMorrts has received a let
ter from W. U. Keury, manager and sec
rotary of the Provincial Exhibition Society of New Westminster, written on
receipt of the Nelson fair prize list
pamphlet. Mr. Keury, who knows some
thing by experience of such matters
"You will permit me to compliment
you on the very creditable work you
hnve tu your prize list; it ts an honoi
lo Nelson."

Rumor of Rick Discovery
in Hunter V.
J. J. Campbell Cannot Confirm Report, But Admits Indications
Are Very Promising.
A report was brought to the city last
night from Ymir that an important
strike was made yesterday ill the Hunter V. mine. It was stated that a vein
of high-grade silver ore 30 feet In width
had been encountered at the greatest
depth yet reached.
Theh Hunter V. has been worked for
the past year under lease by the Hall
sViinlng and Smelting Company upon
terms very favorable to the shareholders, many of whom are Nelson men.
It has always been considered a very
low-grade property, its value consisting
in the possession of very extensive ore
bodies, and in the fact that the ore la
particularly valuable as a flux. A strike
of high-grade ore, if verified, would be
a matter of groat importance to both
owners and lessees.
In reply to a request for confirmation

"I can neither confirm nor deny the

Takes Care of Canada.
London, July 19.���The writer of a secret history in the Reynolds newspaper
says he Is Informed by a highly placed
Canadian official that the friction between French and British Canadians ia
increasing. It looks as though the imperial government might have to Inter
fere. He adds: "The Canadian government has given definite instructions
that no Englishman be given a position
where there is u Canadian born applicant." Editorially Reynolds complains
of the handling of the emigration to
Canada. It says it received complaints
frequently from destitute exiles, also
trom Canadian labor bodies, warning
emigrants. Only two classes are wanted in Canada���farmers with money
enough for two years and domestics.

The newspapers of Canada ure receiving letters from Rev, J. G, Shearer,
iu which he sets forth his reasons for
gratification at the passage ol the
Lord's Day Act, and incidentally explaining in what respects it is UUBatltf*
factory even to Its own parents. To
tho editor Mr. Shearer says, "You are
welcome to make such use of the following statements as you deem wise,"
and we propose to do so in a criticism
of the document which is before ue.
While we cannot reproduce it, we take
pleasure in quoting several of the
clauses dwell upon by Mr. Shearer ln
his expression oi' satisfaction at the
new enactment. Among tlie prohibitions dwelt  upon are the following:
"The Act prohibits theatres, public
games, sports and amusements for
gain, prize or reward. It banishes Sunday newspapers, both home and foreign. It makes Sunday excursions by
railways and steamships illegal, anil
BUch companies arc not free to load aud
unload except in certain circumstances.
Neither may they do construction work
nor general repairs."
These quotations will serve to show
what was aimed at by the L, D. A. in
its recent efforts to secure the enactment Of this law, and will bear out the
statement so often made in criticism of
the alliance thai lis Intended legislation sought to go further than the simple and proper protection of the laboring man inun a life of Incessant toil.
Even in its present emasculated form
the law strikes ai the liberties of the
people, and dictates to them how Ihey
shall not spend the day of rest. Some
of the clauses are both necessary ami
wholesome, and have our every sympathy, hm we fee] sure tlial the enforcement of the law will be difficult, inns-
much as prosecutions under its provisions are madi "dependent upon the permission of the attorney'general," Mr.
(shearer's explanation of this clause i*
"that it was probably Intended to make
vexatious prosecution with malicious
inlent impossible." II ihat was tbe In
tentlon, tbe l- D, a. agents at Ottawa
must have left the Impression upon
lhe members of the house that such a
safeguarding of the people's rights was
a solemn duty of the parliament it is
not, however, with these ibings or with
the general features of the bill thai we
have here to do. The hiii has become
law, and iis enforcement is now up to
lhe authorities who have ihese matters
in charge.
Mr. Shearer hns lieen lor years the
hard-working and painstaking secretary
and organizer of the L. I). A. All its
efforts have been directed toward the
Introduction and passing of Sunday legislation. However conscientious the
secretary may have been���and of his
conscientiousness we have never entertained n doubt���it was imperative that
he dedliver the goods from the present
parliamentary assemblage as some sort
of Justification for the existence of the
.society and the salary of its paid agent.
lie is responsible to tlie alliance, und
the government to the country, for
what has heen done, and we have no
doubt tbe accounting will be a thorough
one when it comes to he made.
The lasi clause of Mr. Shearer's letter is one to which we take serious objection.    It reads as follows:
"It is highly probable that such a law
could not have been passed had it been
other than a government measure, and
it is doubtful if the government would
or could have successfully carried It
through parliament under any but a
French-Canadian premier; and that,
therefore, those who appreciate the
Lord's Day Act, and the country in general, are put under a lasting debt of
gratitude to  Sir Wilfrid Laurier."
Obviously, then, the government must
be held responsible for the measure
thai in its present form will neither
gratify the eastern portion of the Dominion���because of its laxness, indefi-
idleness, provisos and loopholes���nor
be tolerated by the west, because of Us
unwarranted attempt at Interference
with the liberties of the people.
But to be assured by tne L. D. A. that
"it is doubtful if the government could
have carried it through parliament under any but a French-Canadian premier"
is to insult every member of the Anglo-Saxon race from Halifax to the
ends of the earth. Why this unwarranted attack upon the morals or statesmanship of every Canadian citizen except Sir Wilfrid Laurier? Is the great
French-Canadian premier the only one
who might occupy that office who is
capable of forcing legislation by mere
partlzan majorities at the instance of
the Lord's Day Alliance? Perhaps tiiat
is what Mr. Shearer means. Perhaps
there is no one else in Canada but the
present lirsl minister who would place
upon its statute books a measure which
can he only a source of annoyance to
many of its best citizens.
But Mr. Shearer did not mean ihis,
and he insults the editorial desk and
reading customers of every newspaper
in Canada by converting a pamphleteering document into a campaign advertisement for the government that consented to father his pet measure. We
iio not wish to be unjust, hut we are
of ihe opinion that anoiher serious
blunder has been added to the already
long list of those perpetrated by the
alliance. Is the L, J). A. to be converted Into a campaign committee for lhe
Liberal government? We raise no ne
Clal cry. \\'t. scorn race strife ami
prejudice, but it is noi we who have
raised the question; It is the alliance
through iis agent, Was there any understanding between Sir Wilfrid and
Mr. Shearer that In return for a farce
measure uf legislation, presumably in
the Interest of the nlllanco am! those
who think as M does, that tlie alliance
was io become a part of the huge machine that at the next election Is to try
