New Orleans, Apiil 25..���The dead
moro than two hundred, tlie injured at
least live hundred; these were the grim
fuels which came lo light today when
a liule of the wreckage of yesterday's
tornado in Louisiana, Mississippi aud
Alabama had been cleared away. Tbe
tornado lasted altogether 1 ti hours
sinking one town after another lrom
before daylight Friday until mld-after-
uoon. Many hours after they struck,
trains bearing nearly two hundred injured, came crawling cautiously out ol
lhe toi uado district leaving behind
ihein one luwn, Purvis, Miss., ulteiTi
demolished, live others practical!}
blowu away and fifteen little villages
iu more or less acute stages of ruin.
Wilh Hie injured came tile details ol
one of tlie worst wind disasters In the
history  of the Gulf Slates.
First it became known that negroes
comprised most of the dead and badly
wounded and that the picturesque cabins, noted lor their flimsy happy go-
lucky construction, had been converted
by lhe wind into wholesale death traps
Il was iu the full of lhe cabins which
went dowu without warning Hull most
Of the negro deaihs occurred. The
Identified while dead ulready number
forty-two. In addition it was reported
that four whites had been killed ut
McCallum. Miss., which would bring
th" white deaths up to forty-six. The
number of negroes killed was between
150 and 175. No estimates of prop
erty loss have yet been made. The destruction of Purvis, Miss., occurred at
three o'clock Friday- and was all over
In a few minutes, und out ot a hu
dred dwellings only seven were
standing. The court house, the only
other building in the town to withstand
the wind was packed wilh dead and Injured, und utilized as the only available hosptlal within many miles. C,
W. Cromwell, of Jackson, Miss., in attempting to describe the storm said
that all he could realize was that the
air was full of (lying timbers. These
timbers dealt death to many persons
who sought safety in the open air.
while the failing of walls was a still
gteater peril to those who remained in
doors. One child is said to have been
kneeling In prayer, her uncle bending
over her In an attempt to shield her,
but despite his care, a timber Which
did not touch him, killed the little girl
Scarcely one brick of the school
house was left on the other. The school
had been dismissed only a moment before the tornado struck. In a field near
the town a farmer who was plowing
sadw the storm approaching and managed to gel the members of his family
out of doors and behind stumps before
the wind struck. 'The house was blown
away but none of the fanner's family
was   injured.
One child who was killed. Is Bald to
hnve been lifted high in the air and
while still well above the ground to
have heen slruek by a heavy flying limber  which  caused   its  death.
When Ihe storm was over, a special
train hearing twelve physicians and Af.
leen other persons went to Purvis
Meanwhile a second relief train started for Lnmborlon. One train was stopped by a woman waving a red cloth
When the engineer ran ahead lo see
what she wanted the woman tainted
nnd the engineer found the red color
or the cloth wns caused by blood. A
search revealed her home near the rail
road and lhe members of her fntnili
were found dead, and four Injured.
A man who drove In to Purvis lasi
night reported Hint he saw the bodies
of several dead whom he took to be no
groes lying beside the road. At nightfall what was left of the town was under martial law, a militia company pre
serving order.

blown down.
From Columbus. Ga., tho Associated
Press received a despatch saying two
people were killed and a dozen Injured
bv a storm there.
Belated reports received since last
night show that the total deaths by the
tornados ln Mississippi, Alabama and
Louisiana are about 225. The death list
was   suddenly   swelled   by   nearly   one
hundred additional victims In Purlvs
und McLaurfn, Miss., lown not heard

Tbe cause of the blaze was the collapse of an over heated oil switch. The
bottom blow out, the oil took fire and in
a few minutes was everywhere.
G. B. Johnstone, who was on duty,
did his best to smother the flames with
the sand that Is kept always available
tor that purpose. But in spite of all hia
efforts and ot the assistance ot G. Fisher
and another who were present, the hre
soon got beyond control. Without wait-
insyeven for that however, an alarm had
been-aent la to Uu. city flr�� station
Chief Deasy was In the fire station at
11.20 when he heard the whistle at the
round house. The team was harnessed
at once and just then a telephone call
from Blanchard Johnstone told the location of ths fire.
The substation ls outside the city
limits, there are no facilities at the
spot for fighting fire, and the approach
is circuitous and difficult, in the circumstances a creditable run was made.
The wooden part of the building waa
already past saving and the roof of the
brick part was on fire. W. P. Dickson
was on the ground and at once advised
Chief Deasy to save the city's struc-
cture which contains tour new transformers. The advice was taken, and
except for a loss ot oil, which an official
ordered to be poured out, no loss whatever was suffered there, but the saving
of it required a long, bard effort.
The remainder of the building, belonging to the Nelson Electric Tramway
company and the West Kootenay Power
and Light company, is a total loss with
all its contents, consisting of machinery
valued at about $70,000. It is believed,
however, that the whole loss Is covered
by insurance.
It is stated that the probable cause
of the blowing out of the small* transformer was the moving out of the big
car at the car barn without notice to
the man on duty at the substation.
Immediately on the outbreak of the
Are notice was telephoned to Bonnington snd the current was cut off. At
The Daily Canadian office the city water
power was promptly requisitioned and
no delay was suffered.

in tin- making of the provincial lasts
could l,e established. The oiler could
not ho accepted.
There arc nine provinces in Canada,
five under provincial Liberal administration and four under Conservative.
i-'or 12 years tin- provincial voters' lists
have been used for Dominion election
purposes Now a change is proposed
to apply wholly to two Conservative
provinces, Jiritlsh Colombia and Manitoba, to part of Ontario and part of
Quebec. Had the New Brunswick election taken place before the preparation
of Mr. Aylesworth'a hill, It is quite likely thai the lists of that province also
would have bull rejected.
Liberals may argue plausibly that
there Is no reason to take for granted
in advance that the preparation of the
new lists will be made to serve party
But what oilier motive can there be
for it? It cannot be denied, and is not
denied, that in British Columbia al least
it is utterly unnecessary and that it cannot possibly serve any useful purpose.
Nor can it be denied that it will create
opportunity for wrong doing.
Is this no indication of its purpose'.'

Apart from tlie bill's casting an utterly unjustified reflection on the honesty and capacity of those wilh whom
the duty of preparation of voters' lists
now rests, including the county court
Judges who form the courts of appeal,
it creates a very real danger of disfranchising thousands of perfectly qualified voters.

Our local contemporary protests at
great length about an alleged unfair report of the Libera] convention for Yale-

correspondent of the Vancouver Province who did not attend the meetings

it is Irrelevant The kernel of it is that
R. G. Sldley, of Sidley, an Influential
Liberal in his district and an accredited

agalnsl ihe renomination of Duncan
Ross at the convention and thou freely

our contemporary doesn't dispute that.
It may be, as is urged so Indignantly,
that Mr. Sidley's opposition arises from

Carcasses   of   Animals   Floating   Down
From Upper Country.
New Westminster, April 25.���According to reliable reports, the Fraser river
is being made B dumping place for refuse, including dead animals, this year
in a manner Quite distinct from all
former years. T. Sheaves, a well-knowu
fisherman, states that not a day passes
without some person gettiug a horse,
cow or pig in his net, and one day he
came across three dead animals lying
on the b.ink of Lulu islau i, where they
had beeu washed by the current. This
state of things, he states, has been noticeable all spring.
The natural deduction is that the
farmers aloug the upper reaches of the
river are utilizing the river as a means
or getting rid of their refuse. Chief
Constable Spain said when interviewed,
lhat he had received no complaints, and
ln fact had not been made aware of the
alleged dumping, but action would be
taken if the offenders are discovered.
Section il of the provincial health regulations is quite clear on the matter of
throwing refuse in rivers. Tbe clause
reads as follows.
"9. No person shall suffer the accumulation upon or escape from his
premises or deposit or permit lhe deposit, upou any land belonging to him
or under his control, of anything so as
to endanger the public* health or shall
deposit or suiter to penult to he deposited iu, upon, or into any street,
square, lane, by-way. wharf, dock. slip,
lake, pond, harbor, river, stream or
water, any manure or other refuge or
vegetable or animal matter, or filth of
any kind, or any dead animal."
Applications will be received by the
undersigned up to the hour of 5 o'clock
iu the afternoon of Friday, April 24th,
for the position of chief of the Nelson
polios force.
