since February 5, 1886, has t he official
weather bureau thermometer registered
such a low point, as it did at 5 o'clock
today, the mercury at that hour showing 7 degreeB. From about 4 o'clock
yesterday a ftcrnoon It grew steadily
colder, and tho prospects are that the
frigid weather will hold out during
the day. In Norfolk, Barkhamstad and
Hartland, ln the western part of the
state, there was a record-breaking drop
of the mercury, showing 24 degrees
below at 7 o'clock. Reports from all
parts of ihe state show that the present cold snap Is the most severe known
ln many years, and as a result a great
Ice crop Is expected to be harvested.

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Kamloops, Jan. 24.���The largest
meeting held here during the present
campaign was addressed last night by
Martin Burrell and A. S. Ooodeve In
the Interests of Fulton. W. W. B. Mclnnes was present and was allowed one
Burrell opened and for an hour dealt
with political Issues, exposing the poverty of the Liberal program and the
shallowness of the scandal charges.
The speaker laid bare Mclnnes' record
and clearly showed the danger on the
federal side of supporting provincial
Liberals. "Take away Mclnnes' lung
power and you have nothing left." said
Mr. Burrell, amid laughter.
Mclnnes denounced Bowser and tho
government, disclaimed connection
with Ottawa and hit out at the Socialists. He closed his speech hy a dastardly personal reference to Good-
eve's UosBland municipal work. As he
reached the words, "It Is no honor for
Kamloops to hear Ooodeve," the crowd
broke into a roar of disapproval. Mclnnes stood vainly trying to get a hearing and had to take hlB seat In confusion.
Goodevo captured the house hy n

Scathing Criticism from
London Papers
Sir James Swettenham's Curt Refusal of American Aid Strongly
Condemned by All.
London, Jan 24.���The colonial office
is now in puss,-ssiou of official advices
from Sir Alexander Sweetenham, the
governor of Jamaica, concerning the
exchange of letters between him and
Hear Admiral Davis. The extent of
these advices has not been disclosed,
lt appears that the imperial authorities
requested the governor of Jamaica to
send them a copy of his letter to Rear
Admiral Duvis. This has beeu furnished and It allows that the letter, as given by tlie Associated Press, waa to all
intents and purposes a correct copy.
It Is now learned that the secretary ol
the colonies, Lord Elgin, sent a second
cablegram to Governor Sweetenham,
asking hlm lo give his version of the
affair. To this the foreign office In-
termed thu Associated Press no answer
has yet been received, lt ls explained
that while this second cable was drawn
up January 21, and the colonial offloe
announced lhat ou that day it had been
sent to Kingston, it was not forwarded
until January 22, because It required
the direct authority of Lord Grey, wim
was absent In Scotland, aud who could -
not be reached until the 22nd. John
It. Carter, charge d'affaires of tlie
American embassy, called at the foreign office tonight and received the
same explanation of the situation as
was furnished Uie Associated ress. Tlie
tact that Governor Sweetenham wrote
the letter to Rear Admiral Davis having beeu established there remained
only to determine the otriclal formalities. The indications are that Uie matter will be bandied throu_.h the usual
diplomatic channels and that lhe cor-
correspondence will be made public
ln a blue book.
Discussion of lhe incident discloses
that the British view makes a clear
differentiation between Governor
Sweeteuham's opplsltion to the presence of a foreign force ou Jamaican
soil and his manner of expressing thiB
opposition. What the British government and people now condemn ls the
tone of the letter to Rear Admiral
Davis. The foreign office has declared
that there was "no excuse for such
language from an official to tho officer
of a friendly nation engaged In a
work of humanity." The press and
public a ro adopting substantially similar views, but on the question whether
Governor Sweetenham wus justified iu
asking Rear Admiral Davis to withdraw
his arnied forces from the Island, Hritish opinion Inclines to hold that Governor Sweetenham ncted clearly within
his rlghta.
Many persona, however, contend thai
the abnormal conditions should have
Induced the governor to waive the
usual requirements, if, as is supposed
hero, Rear Adinlrnl Davis landed marines at Kingston without a specific
request from the governor.. Th" i'lea
prevails here thai llie admiralty, as an
outcome of the agitation aroused by
the recent events In Jamaica, may modify the pints under whicli thc Weal
Indies were almost abandoned as a
naval Blatlon. It Is Biiggested that Jamaica may he made a Btrong naval
station, attached to an effective and
well equipped naval base on tho Canadian coast If the forthcoming colonial
conference can devise aome plan for
the distribution of financial responsibility for naval defense throughout the
The Dally Telegraph In a scathing
article arraigns Governor Bwecteaharo
as follows;
"We would be unfaithful to our duties as an exponent of public opinion
If we failed to call attention to the extraordinary conduct of His Excellency
In the present, crisis. His general be
havioi* at a moment of peril and difficulty was unworthy a responsible
Itritish official and even of a cultured
Englishman. His letter to Rear Admiral Davis was a production of which
he uught to be ashamed. The United
States in friendly. American bone ls
British bone and Iheir flesh is British
flesh, and no one but a blinded bigot
would have refused to admit American
landing parties. The men from the
American warships did magnificent
work in removing the debris and removing bodies, and the naval surgeons
performed equally splendid service.
We want a man who does not spend
his lime riding about the clly cursing
officials who are endeavoring to work
loyally. The people of t his community
bave lost confidence In his power of
guidance and are indignant at his autocratic bullying and Insulting manner."
A despatch to the Times says, concerning Governor Hfreetenham's acUon
In depriving tlunis s.ids of women and
children of adequate food and shelter,
prominent English officials, clergymen
and Judges join in condemnation of the
governor's course It Is also considered
sufficient that the chief organ of the
present government, the London Tribune, Ib Incensed, because Governor
Sweetenham refused Its offer of relief
and suppllels from England.
A despatch to the Evening Standard
from Kingston dnted yesterday, says
lhe corresiamdence between the government and Rear Admiral Davis, pub
llshed this morning, has Intensified the
strong public feeling against the governor. Although the admiral precipitated the landing of marines. It Ib recognized that he did bo with the best
motives, and every one except the governor appreciated ;his kindly action.
The business of merchants bas been
Impaired by the passage In the governor's letter, stating that they would be
glad of the free help of the marines In
clearing their stores.
Kingston, Jan. 22.���(Delayed.)���The
Most Rev. Thos. Nuttall, the lord archbishop of Uie Weat Indies, said today
that he had heard that King Edward
had cabled deprecating the idea that
the people of Jamaica Bhould accept
foreign assistance. , He said he trusted his majesty had 'not given utterance
to this sentiment and tbat If he had
he (the archbishop) did not approve of
It. Thc archbishop said also that he
believed a great mistake had been
mnde when Governor Sweetenham rejected the offer of American aid. The
archbishop sent a cablegram to President Roosevelt today thanking him
warmly for the assistance of the American navy. The relief committee are
actively engaged ln sending refugees
Into the country and districts where
they can be better provided for.
Bishop Hendricks of Colon arrived
this morning on board tho steamer Advance, which brought from Colon 100
tons of food and 18000 to be distributed
to tho Jamaican refugees by the relief committees. The Advance will return to Colon with refugees. The
French cruiser Jurlen de la Gravlera
and a Haytlan gunboat have arrived
here. The latter vessel offered aid but
It was declined by the governor
Lundon, Jan. 24.���President Roosevelt's assurance through Assistant
Secretary of State Bacon, that -the
1'niied States will pay no heed to the
Kingston incident, coupled with the
press despatches stating that tbe American officials consider the Incident
closed, elicit some appreciative expressions of satisfaction from the officials
and public here who do not desire to
prolong the painful controversy. However, the closing of the incident ls considered to apply to tho International
aspect only, as there remains a considerable reckoning between Great Britain
nnd Governor Sweetenham. Several
circumstances quite independent of the
Incident, in which Rear Admiral Davis
was connected, and not coming through
American channels, are combining to
create prejudice agalnat Swcetenhnm's
A speolnl despatch from Kingston announces that a number of ships are arriving there In the nick of time, as the
local supplies of food were running
short. Tho despatches, however, add;
"In view of the governor's action In refusing American assistance and gifts,
the disposition of the latest consignment is uncertain."
Tale of Dally  Suicides���Prefer  Death
to Their Worries.
New York, Jan. 24.���Within IB minutes after he had registered at the
Orand Unloin hotel, Lathrop Smith, a
student In the law school at Columbia
university, from Kansas City, committed suicide today by shooting himself
through the head.
Schenectady, N. Y., Jan. 24.���After
speaking comforting words to her sick
husband, Mrs. W S. Murphy, 27 years
old. went to the stairway ln the read
of their home here and cut her throat
from ear to ear with a razor. She died
within a few minutes. It Is believed
that worry over her husband's condition unbalanced her mind.
Duncan Ross is Punished
by Premier
Hon. R. McBride Sways Audiences
Everywhere���Dominion Member
for Yale Rebuked
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Vernon, Jan. 24.���Premier McBride
drove 17 miles from Vernon to hold 8
meeting at Armstrong last night, and
met on the platform Duncan Ross, M.
P., who spoke for Dr. McDonald; also
J. Johnson, representing the Socialists,
before the 600 people who crowded the
The premier administered such a cas-
ligation to Ross as the latter will not
aoon foget. Ross was not popular with
the majority of the crowd and when he
stated that the government bad almost
destroyed the school system of the
province there was such an uproar that
he bad much difficulty in continuing.
He charged, as usual, the C. P. R.
domination of the government and repeated the Kaien Island criticism.
There waa a great difference In the
audience's treatment of the premier,
for the most part deep attention being
paid to his remarks. The premier took
occasion to give an emphatic denial to
the statements of the Vancouver World
regarding alleged leases of coal lands
on Pine River to the Transcontinental
Exploration Syndicate by the late
chief commissioner, and aaid not an
acre of coal landa had been leased to
that company.
One of the chief things dealt with
by Johnson was his advocacy of woman
Professor De Martens Sounding Powers
a*   to Second Peace Conference.
Berlin, Jan. 24���Professor De Mar-
tens of St. Petersburg lunched with
Ambassador Towers today and had a
second talk with him regarding the at-
Utude of the United States to the second peace conference at The Hague.
Foreign Secretary TBchlsky and Professor De Martens had a preliminary
mee Ing at the foreign office yesterday
concerning Germany's wishes regarding it. The secretary delegates Dr.
Krlge, of the International law division
of the foreign office, to state his views,
fully pointing out that Germany Is
ready to go Into conference whenever
it Ib agreeable to the other powers.
The second peace conference is considered to be more important than the
first, as lt will probably begin its deliberations whether the world has really
advanced to the point where It Is realized that the relations between peoples
and governments can be modified and
adjusted by the counsel and moral
weight of their neighbors.

Unknown Young Man  Murders Noted
London Merchant.
London, Eng., Jan. 24.���William
Whltely, founder of the first big departmental store ln Ixindon, waa shot
and killed this afternoon by a young
man wbo afterward attempted to commit suicide.
Wr. Whltely was on the point of
leaving his Store when his assailant
rushed np to him with a revolver In
his hand, fired several shots and the
merchant fell dead. The assassin then
emptied the revolver Into his own body,
Inflicting what are believed to be mortal wounds. No reason has yet been
assigned for the murder. The store
waB crowded with shoppers at the Ume
and a semi-panic followed the tragedy.
The police were quickly on the scene.
The public were ejected from the building and the doors closed.
Later, Mr. Whltely'a assailant died
at his room. His identity has not been
ascertained. The murderer, previous
to the attack, had been conversing
with Mr. Whltely, and Uie latter waa
overheard to say as he walked away,
"If you do not go away, I shall call
the police."   The shooting followed.
Rome Denounces   Independent French
Rome, Jan. 24.���The Vatican authorities denounce aa non-Catholic the new
"French Apostolic Catholic church," organized under the leadership of Henry
Desvox, whose constitution as a cultured association has been accepted by
the French government, as announced
from Paris yesterday. The authorities
of the church here add that Archbishop
Vllatto, head of the Independent Catholic movement In America, who ls now
In Paris and is lending his aid temporarily to establish the spiritual jurisdiction of the church, ls a well known
apbattte and that therefore everything
he does In the nature of organlzaUon
of the priests Is valid.

Washington, D. C, Jan. 24.���Announcement was made at th ewar department today that the offices of
chairman and chief engineer of tbe
Isthmus canal commission would be
combined, and that J. F. Stevens, the
present chief engineer, would be glren

Report of  Professor  Shutt,  Dominion
Chemist, on Sample Submitted by
Local Fruit Growers.
The following explains itself and will
be of interest to those of onr readers
engaged In the fruit and garden Industry. The analysis was requested by
the Kootenay Fruit Growers' Association, and the result Is much bettor than
was anticipated
Ottawa, Jan. 16, 1907.
Secretary   Kootenay    Fruit   Growers'
Association, Nelson, B. C.
Dear Sir: The results of our analysis of the fertilizer forwarded by you
are as follows:
Analysis of "Blood and Bone":
Moisture      4.19
Total   mineral   matter   (chiefly
bone)     37.00
Mineral matter insoluble ln acid
(sand, etc.)     1.50
Nitrogen      G.ll
Phosphoric acid    (equivalent to
31.5 per cent, bone)     14.46
On consulting the Fertilizer Bulletin
Issued by the inland revenue department, this fertiliser will be seen to
compare quite favorably with others of
a similar nature sold on the Canadian
Perhaps I should point out that In
these materials, blood and hone, tankage, etc., the nitrogen la by no meana
entirely tn the form of dried blood,
but Is largely furnished by meat
scraps, offal, etc. Thla fact necessarily makes the nitrogen slower tn availability than that of pure dried blood,
which latter, as you may know, fetches
a considerably higher price as a fertiliser.
If the members of the association
are thinking of using this or similar
fertiliser I would point out that the
additional application of potash ln
some form would be generally desirable for market gardening, fruit and
orchard purposes.
Yours truly,

Edilorial Stairs Straggle

Grotesque Distortion of C. H. Bonner. Message���" Wires That
He Can't Communicate"
The editing of telegraphic communications Is not a particularly arduous
task, nor does It require generally any
exceptional learning or Intelligence.
The only possibly puzzling feature of
telegraphic reports, provided the telegraph operator be sober and not extraordinarily stupid, Is the matter ot
A volume might be made ot stories-

The Dally News' contribution in this
morning's Issue belongs obviously to
the comic class. The Dally News wired
to Kaslo for Information as to the
whereabouts of Neil F. Mackay. An
answer was received from the Conservative campaign committee rooms,
which The Dally News presents thus:
"Kaslo, Jan. 23.���Neil McKay, In the
north, wirea down that he cannot communicate.
'���(Signed) C. H. BONNOR."
Tbe editor gravely comments that, he
reply la rather ambiguous. As presented It Is not ambiguous, It Is absurd.
"Nell Mackay wires that he cannot
communicate"! It might aa well be,
"Roars that he cannot speak," or,
"Writes that be cannot hold a pen."
Obviously���and we did think there
waa Intelligence enough in The Dally
News offloe to see It���the telegram
from Mr. Bonnor should read:
"Kaslo, Jan. 23.���Neil Mackay In the
north Wires down. Cannot communicate."
We do not for a moment aeense The
Daily Newa of wilful misrepresentation.
The "reliability" of news reports may
be as gravely Impaired by suc*i eni ,3_l
stupidity as by Intentional dishonesty.
Since the above was written the following telegrams have been received
from Kaslo:
"Kaslo, Jan. 24.���Have wired The
Dally Newa as follows: Green and
Mackay in the Trout Lake or Ferguson district; lake frozen over; wires
all down. Tour message not delivered.
Impossible for either ot them to know
anything of the World charges or your
request for explanation. Play fair. Do
not misinterpret or add words to telegrams changing the meaning; do not
accuse Mackay of refualng to answer

Liberal party.
What have they chosen?
To Borne exlent, they have chosen to
attack the latest public school act, especially In respect of the new financial relations created between the provincial government und the municipali
ties. But the atlack on that ground has
been made chiefly by those. Including
the nominal leader, J. A. Macdonald,
who hHve least acquaintance with the
School Act or Ihe school system.
On the whole, the opposiiion party
has elected to rely in the present campaign mainly on the attempts made by
them, or their irresponsible press supporters, to convict the government of
dishonesty, by Itself us an organization
or by Individual members of it; to
fasten upon it the reproach of dishonesty,
The attempts made are numerous.
They include the transfer of Ihe Kaien
Island terminal site, the renewal of the
land subsidy to the Columbia & Western���that is. to the C. P. R��� Railway
oompany, and a few minor matters.
II would he unfair to charge the Liberal parly generally with Ihe Indecent
extravagances of the Vancouver World,
including the Pendray lots slander, or
the latesl one. affecting R. F. Green.
But It is not unfair to say that the
Uberal opposition, as a whole, has
eleoted to base its case before the
electorate upon a series of accusations
of dishonesty against the government
rather than upon any affirmative, alternative policy offered by themselves.
They have therefore risked their
whole ense upon a eompulgn of fault
rinding, nol to say Blander. If the provincial electorate were a Judicial body,
their chances of success would depend
wholly upon their success or failure
lo prove these charges.
So fnr all such utlempts have failed
if'.nominiously. Even where the titter
failure has been admitted no retraction
or upology has been forthcoming.
The Inference Is, then, perfectly fair.
tliat the Liberal parly has no alternative policy In offer the electorate, thai
lt will continue the general policy of
Ihe McUride government, and thai his
hopes of preferment rest wholly on the
chances of success of some of the
niuny attempts to convict the present
government of wrongdoing.
But, there Is unolher issue that cannot be concealed fiom the people of
British Columbia.
If the people of this province were
left to isiiina <��� their own internal af-
, fairs us the people of all the provinces
were while u Conservative cabinet held
office at Ottawa, thc issue would ho
simply as to which Bet of aspirants for
office offered the greater hope of efficient administration and progressive
But the people of this province are
not left to manage their own affairs.
The control of the campaign has been
taken out of the hands of the Liberal
association of the province and Is being directed by the Ottawa machine,
whose avowed purpose is to suppress
what is left of Independence in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia,
nnd bring all Canada under the heel uf
that corrupt organization.
Because J. A. Macdonald, the provincial Liberal leader, allhoilgb he has
recenl ly developed a taste for scandal-
mongerlng, is personally clean, a new
leader had to be sought, one who was
known tu have no scruples aboul honor
or honesiy, and one whose assent before hand, for a consideration, to any
course dictated hy the machine, could
be taken for granted.
Such a party leader was available in
the person of W. W. B. Mclnnes.
Now the Issue���the only real issue���
before the electors of British Columbia, Is: "Will the people of this province continue to manage their own affairs, or will they meekly surrender to
Ottawa, and allow the Slftons, Coxes,
Prestons and such to dictate their
course und plunder the province while
ihey do it?
It ls a little remarkable lhat the
first intelligent statement of policy pin
forth on behalf of the Liberal parly In
Ihis campaign, comes from u free lunce
like Smith Curtis. As The Dully News
refers to it for Information one who
hus inquired for such u statement
through the columns of The Dally Canadian, we are entitled to treat it as
authoratitive, at least for the present.
lt is Inconceivable lo us that Willie
Mclnnes, for instance, should accept
his shibboleth from Smith Curtis, who
published to the province three yeurs
ago his conviction that Mclnnes was
unfit for leadership or even for membership lu the Liberal party, utterly
without principle or scruple, and worse
Ihan Joe Martin. However, Willie is
probably too busy talking about himself to worry about such a trifle as a
But If Smith Curtis' manifesto is to
be accepted as official, Dr. Hall, J.
Fred Hume and John Keen must make
haste with revised editions of their
several efforts, and J A. Macdonald,
who owes his first election to the success of Smith Curtis' slander campaign
against A. S. Goodeve, must materially
modify his views on the working men's
vote. Smith Curtis Is running as a
Labor-Liberal. Here Ib his appettl to
labor: "Amending the laws as to contributory negligence and common employment so as to make them fair to
Injured workmen as well as to the employers.
"Establishing a labor arbitration act
on the lines of the New Zealand act.
thus doing away with strikes and lockouts, enabling a living white man's
wage to be established, thus driving
oul Chinamen, Hindoos, etc., and encouraging without peril to labor the
Immigration of desirable white settlers;
eabling shorter hours to he got, when
right, In any trade, and tending to
unionize all wage earners and make
them the political power their numbers
entitle them to be."
If the last sentence means anything
at all, it advocates forcing all working
men Into labor unions for political
We take Issue with Mr. Curtis on his
last mischievous suggestion. It is not
numbers hut Intelligence that entitles
any class to political power. If numbers constitute a title we are keeping
the children fiom their rights.
We regret to have to refer to the
flrsl piece of dirty tactics ln Nelson
during the present campaign. Hitherto the campaign lies have heen manufactured ut the coast, chiefly ln Ihe
sunctum of the Vuncouver World. But
one���a peculiarly malicious and mischievous one���haB beeu manufactured
In Nelson for locul use. It Ib well
known to all who huve hnd anything
to do with politics In any part of Canada lhat with many voters religious
prejudices are very strong, that members of the church of Rome will not Infrequently cross their party line to
vote for an adherent of their own
faith and that Bome aggresBive Protestants will refuse support to their own
party's candidate If the latter be a
Ronmn Catholic. It is to the lutler
class thut an appeal Is now being made
ln secret: Ihe lying statement that
John A. Kirkpatrick is a Romanist was
placed In circulation yesterday, with
the sole object of detaching from his
side some Protestants who will not
vole for a Roman Catholic if they can

of the congregation of St. Paul's

Ifscial statement  In  reference to the
parses made against  the  Lands  and

fclis*(l In The Victoria Times yeBterday.
sssssn as U can he obtained however,
authoritative statement will be se-

ul.llshi.cl in The Victoria Times of last
suig under the heading, "A. colossal
caudal al  last unearthed,"  ae an un-
silirii'il    misrepresentation    of    fact.
Inn Interviewed yesterday ho said, "I,

Vancouver, Jan. 23.���At    the    mas?
""'Hug at. the clly hall hundreds were
'"'ned away for want of room.    Con-
rvatlve addresses were enthuslastlc-
fly "'wived.   No   Liberal   candidate
'III be elected ln Vancouver.   Hon, R.
C. Tatlow made a splendid address and
was cheered to the echo. Bowser and
the other candidates got a great reception.
Tatlow aald: "ln relation to the
charges made agalnBt Green that It was
no Intention of the government to
make any statement before Green had
been given tbe opportunity to speak.
that a day or two will elapse before
Green can receive copies of the newspapers making charges, but a full
statement would be made, one fully
satisfactory to the public."
Granville Cuppage, an official of tbe
LandB and Works department of Victoria, declares that the published article referred to is an unqualified misrepresentation of fact. Cuppage*B
statement was made today at Victoria and was signed by him. lt says:
"Regarding the statement that application for leases for 32 sections of coal
lands on Pine River were granted.
Green could not consider the application for conl leases which were evidently In the reserve from which the
Dominion government has tl_ right to
choose 3,500,000 acres. I nm in a ik>-
sltion to Btate emphatically that leases
were not Issued to the Transportation
und Exploration syndicate. The public is entitled to examine thc lease
books ln the Ijinds und Works department nnd any one cnrliiK to tnke advantage of this privilege will find my
statement absolutely correct.
"Caron et al. dl dsecure leaBes under
the provisions of the Coal Prospecting
Act. These were Issued In the usual
way. the applicants complying with the
act, ln every particular and the leases
were granted as a matter of course.
Verification of this statement can be
obtained nt the Lands and Works department.
"Any one wishing will be mnde o.-
qnalnted with every detail by simply
asking for Information.
"The assertion that slimes lu lhe company in question were transferred to
me Ib without the slightest foundation.
I own no shares In the aforesaid company.
"Yesterday, Nelson of the Times'
start* called at the Land and Works department and Introduced a friend of
his to me. He wished Information aboul
the Transportation and Exploration
company, and asked me If I was nol a
director of tbe company. He seemed
surprised when I denied uny knowledge,
or being u director, or being connected
with the company in any way. In view
of this Information I was extremely surprised to find my name connected with
the company in an article appearing in
Thc Times last evening."

Greenwood, an. 23.���Benjamin Perk-
kins, who bonded his claims oa Kettle
river to local people for $60,000, died
at the Sisters' Hospital here Tuesday
Perkins was suffering from a bad
cold when visited In his cabin in the hills
last week but appeared to be stronger
when the Greenwood men left him Saturday last, and resisted their efforts to
induce him to come to town for medical
treatment. He got worse, however, on
Monday last, and Tuesday morning Mr.
Berg, who was working on tbe adjoining claim brought him here to the hospital, where he expired two hours after
The case appeals to one as strikingly pathetic. Por years Perkins worked
away on his claims, assured that duly
he would realize thereon for his declining days. Last week he observed
the (13rd j rthday anniversary in
Greenwood and returned to his claims.
Hy lived long enough thereafter to option bis property for the amount

Sydney, N. S., Jan. 23.���The problem
of Hooding the Hub colliery at Glace
Bay is proving (ar more serious than
was al first anticipated and officials
of the company who had hoped that the
fire would be extinguished within two
weeks or so were somewhat wide of tlle
mark in their prophecy. Three weeks
huve already passed since the fire
suited and hundreds of thousands of
gallons of waler have been poured Into
the smouldering volcano, and many
thousands more will huve to flow before it can be said that the fire is out
to a certainty.
It was reported that at high tide,
water from tbe Atlanlc was flowing
Into the mine through two openlngB
made in the cliff at Table Head. This
Is ascertained not to be the case. The
water flowed Into the openings and up
lhe slojse, but ouly a few waves flowed
Into the pit. The water In order to
get into the mine would have to go up
an Incline above high tide level.
All water that haB gone into the mine
so far has been from the reservoir at
No. 2. ThiB has been flowing In only
at the rate of 2500 gallons per hour.
The water is still hundreds of feet
from the pit bottom where the fire Is
believed to* be still burning. A pump
ls now being placed at the reservoir
In order to lnciease  the flow.
The question arises how long will
Ihis limited reservoir supply hold out.
Tho drain upon It is very heavy on*)
a seveie frost will probably cut off Its
r: sources.
Experienced miners siy that the pit
will ns:t be recovered lns'de of a year.
Tbey do not think the fire ls making
nny great gain now, but lhat lt would,
never.hclBs, be falal lo open the colliery, as in thai event, smouldering
coalB would break out Into flames.
