CANMORE, May 16—WindowB were
broken, heavy timbers blown hundreds
of yards away, the town shaken and
the fan bouse at tbe Canmore mines
was completely demolished by an explosion which occurred In No. 2 mine
at Canmore Saturday afternoon, when
Tony Trano, the man who caused the
explosion,' now lies in the hospital badly burned;

the pumps have been kept working,-
and it was to attend to one of .these
that. Trano, who is a pumpman,   descended the shaft.    -
What really happened will not be

descended into thc mine at about 2.10

SAN FRANCISCO, May 19—Rudolph
Spreckles, a millionaire, whose name
has been blazed into the records of
every day's proceedings in the trial
for bribery of President Patrick Calhoun of the United Railroads, begun
more, than five months ago, was examined today. . ,
--Through a cross examination replete
with stinging inferences and insinuations he sat undisturbed, disclosing the
innermost secrets of the graft prosecutions, reciting the substantial payments he had made to its officers and
agents, and disclaiming utterly the motives imputed to him by attorney Earl
Rogers, who conducted the ' inquiry
for the defence.
He was excused until'tomorrow with
the understanding that.he would pro-
duco in court his personal account, of
mitted he had * expended in' behalf of
the'graft'prosecution. '''■'..
- Mr. Spreckles admitted having^ paid
the- rent and expenses of.Mr. Heney's
private law office for a long timo and
that the amounts were between ?500
and $600 a month. It was likewise
admitted that'Mr. Spreckles had for
a considerable time paid a large sum
to Charles W. Cobb Mr. Heney's partner, to whom in pursuance of nn
agreement made, at the outset'of the
prosecution, Mr. Spreckleu is to pay
$20,000 moro.
The witness said he had requested
district attorney Langdon to appoint
Mr. Heney as a member of his staff aftor he had obtained from the prosecution nn agroement to accept.

On the 22nd day. of May, 1902, there

The proferred aid of countless hundreds, the manly and,heroic attempts
to tn some small way pour in the oil

and a strong'factor, without which in
times of trouble, life at its best would
be a barren desert—but sympathy in
its best form and its sincerest state,
could not compensate in any degree
for the unspeakable loss and gloom
into' which -scores of Fernie homes
were plunged on that memorable day.

There is a certain member of the
fourth estate who wields the blue pen-
ell in a sanctum not a thousand miles
from the city of Lethbridge,*and wlio
is a worshipper at tlie shrine of the
Apostle of San Francisco— Henry.
In a recent article we wore Invited
to consider the "single tax," especially
the "business men groaning under the
burden of high rents." Incidentally
wo were informed that the single tax
theory was condemned by the idle
wealthy and the, Socialists, and as the
latter are supposed to be the ne plus
ultra of reformers (?) there necessarily must be some grave reasons for the
non-acceptance of the Georgian (?)
The theory of single-tax is accepted
by a large number of the small business element, that part of society which
is neither capitalist nor wage earner,
but is conscious of its approaching
doom—extinction— in the merry game
of dog-eat-dog of Capitalism; they'see
their legitimate profits wrung from
. them in the form of "high rents and
taxes," so' naturally in the adoption of
this theory they see a Utopia in a society whose economic basis is the single tax; they would convince us that
rent is an immoral institution; and
that if we could only be brought to
see that by appropriating the values
which are claimed as rent, such would

must sell, or endeavor to sell, his labor
power day after day, it holds out no
hope, for under a single tax regime' the
laws governing the production of
commodities would' operate just the
same and as value of labor power as a
commodity is the minimum amount of
necessities to reproduce itself the position of the workers would remain unchanged.
Under single tax the law of supply
and demand, would make itself felt,
the improvement of machinery would
still go on and the unemployed with
increasing numbers would continue to
grow; there would be too many work-'
ers then, as now, for tho amount, of
work to be done.
The' mission of Socialism is to remove "those physical and mental abilities of man" which economists term
labor power, out of the category of
commodities, which the single taxer
does not even touch.
The Socialists are "double taxers,"
it is.their intention to tax the capitalist, who figures°both as land and machine owner,,clean out of existence.

-.The advocacy of the single tax calls

struggle proved its fitness to be "top

In the Socialist Commonwealth the

incessant poverty but will be able to
give free reign to his genius.
Socialism may, therefore, expect an
era of marvellous inventions, such as
wii make tlie.miraculous inventions of
the last, hundred years appear trifling
in  comparison. -
Those wlio are attracted toward scientific pursuits will have ample time
and opportunity to do their best^along
these lines.
Today the devotees of the fine arts
has to please the rich in order to keep
out of the poorhouse. ' Tbe masses

The fact is that while the prevailing
incentives at the present time are tho
incentives to escape starvation and the
incentive to excel in making money,
there are other incentives now existing:

effecting such shall pay to ttie government a sum equal to -15 per cent of
the total net.cost of insurance so effected. Mr.- Fielding said the resolution would gauge ttie temper of the
house. Upon the clause in which was

much difference, of opinion but he did
not regard the matter as vital and
would accept • the judgment, of the
In the discussion which ensued doubt
was expressed as to whether parliament had power to Impose such a tax.

transfer the chartering, of railways

Rich Discovery in Centre Star
" OiMTruT-Big Values Now^
OfSight--Big Profits.
01    Last Month  '£"
- ROSSLAND, May 19—The Canadian
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
treated ore at its Trail smelter during
the first quarter of this year yielding
values, at $1,117,000. The refinery
produced 4450 tons of pig lead, and iri
addition to shipments to Eastern Canada, China and Japan the company
has shipped during April 250 tons to
Australia, which is a record* shipment
of Canadian lead' to (-.hat country.
In the north vein of the Centre Star
mine a new ore body has been uncovered which carries just double the values of the usual run of the mine, while
the big ore body in the War Eagle, estimated to contain one million in values, is practically untouched.
The net profits of the Centre Star
group alone for April were $36,500.

Greatly Exaggerated
ADANA, May 20—The estimates of
„from 20,000 to 25,000 Christians killed
by Mohammedan in the province of
"' Adana, made a fortnight ago, must be
revised. It is now ascertained that the
number, can hardly reach more than
10,000.,     ' '        ■ ,
Thousands who we$*e supposed to
have'been killed in the country district
have-now come into the larger towns
for relief.     Nearly.'50.000 pepple have
received relief and assistance from the
Turkish and foreign relief committees
at Adana, 22,000 at Marasti, 14,000 at
Hadjin, 3000 at Mersina, 2000 at, Lat-
akla ancTa large number at Tarsus'.
Fugitives from the-villages-'and the
settlements in their- fear exaggerated
the extent of the slaughter.-There still
still remains tho fact that frightful and
atrocious brutality was practiced, especially towards tho women. Thb figures of about 2000 Mohammedans kill-
ed   in this province must also be
duced. , .
A total; of 22,000 refugees were fed
in this city, yesterday. Four hundred
wounded and other persons are being
cared- for in the American and other
hospitals of Adana. .
It is estimated that 4000 out of the
total number., of refugees .are ill and
400 of these are suffering' from measles, dysentry and typhoid fever.

Developments along the line of advertising in -- all business have been
very rapid in recent years. New plans
and new schemes working ihpracti-
cally.'every conceivable way have been
used by business firms to bring their
wares' before the mind of the public.
Nor has this development been confined to any one class of advertisers.
The saloon men and the,liquor*Interests generally have been making use
of printers ink,during recent months,
endeavoring to inform the public that
all-the great-men of the past or present have been users of beer or whiskey, and that therefore, genius and
greatness will undoubtedly die when
the saloon goes out of business. Of
all the attempted advertisements, the
following copy of a card sent out by
the proprietor of a saloon ■ in Wash-
tucna, Wash., is in itself unique. On
one side, of the card is printed the
following. " ' . '•

It's all right to say "Boost foi* Fernie," but
first of all we must'get together a lot more than at

yearly, to0"run, and if some of .tlie citizens will not
support them, what use is there in boosting for the
city, or boosting for other industries'?

and that .costs the inerchnnts thousands to keep

good money out to Eaton's or Simpson's, and take
a long chance on being suited. They do this'in

. followed are adjusted to. a nicety, and everything . was,-from a -professional standpoint,
above criticism. But' the public, who judge by
results, will say the' circumstances point to' the
need of law reform."
-To which conclusion we add a sonorous, heartfelt, Amen. The public are not at all interested
in legal niceties; they are not concerned and have
no connection with hair-splitting processes i|sed to
determine judicial quibblings and uncertainties.
As far as the probate court is concerned every
effort should be}'made to simplify its" method of
procedure; no stone shoukLbe left unturned that
would tend to eliminate the extravagant nature of
its workings. Widows and orphans should have
access to the probate court with full knowledge
that the proceeds of an estate on which they are depending for future sustinence,"will not be made

Is it Possible
ions,of unscrupulous, persons who have in many
instances come to regard such1 cases as their rightful and established'stamping grounds, .and from
which they may,, unhaltered and unrestrained, extract every cent possible ih the way of;charges and
costs, und still more,-charge's -and costs. v .
r. The probate court is but one section of our judicial system; has more.strength than
its weakest link.: The loss of prestige which is
bound to attach itself to any particular court that
allows four-iifths' of a goodly estate to be' eaten,
up iri costs, cannot be wholly confined to the offending section; contamanation by very reason of
popular "association of probate courts with all other
courts, is certain and inevitable, and too often, as
a result, discredit, and disrepute are thrown upon
the whole system of justice.
.Redress and reform, speedy and effective, are
surely necessary. . The public do not, as has' bc-eri
stated, hold in contempt the law; they,have.nut
passed into' any state of semi-lawlessness, nor are
they yearning for the by-gone' barbaric systems of
summary justice, c The public have a growing dislike,, verging on contempt, for the way in which
certain portions of our great legal system lend
themselves, seemingly, to the untrammelled appetites for gain of certain exponents of things logal.

Fropi our own Correspondent
7 Lillian,'the twelve years old daughter of Peter and Mrs. Finch, was returning from the. stores with parcels
between 9.30 and 10 o'clock Saturday
morning. When crossing the small
bridge which spans the creek lt Is
supposed she was tempted, childlike,
to mount the cross pieces and look over
into the seething torrent beneath. By
becoming dizzy or over reaching herself she fell over Into the water. Luckily Ted Gibson was,close by and getting to tlie spot ho observed her dress
was fastened to something. Before lie
was ablo to reach her she was washed
clear and was being carried down
stream at the mercy of the terrific
rush of water. -Two other men, Jack
Cartnell and Harry Klngmvood, were
now on tho scene and tlio poor girl
was at last rescued In a sorry plight.
She was taken home whero sho received medical and motherly attention.' She
has now quite recovered from the effects of the immersiont-but Is suffering
from a badly sprained „ and *> . bruised
arm? - *

..The. passengers on one'of; the coaches
of the last train-from town on Sunday
night were greatly alarmed by a sudden and very loud noise like the breaking of glass. The train was near to
French' camp at the time and investigation had been made- and'lald bare the
fact that some missile rnust.have been
thrown with considerable force at the
train,-one of the windows'being completely smashed. " Some of those on
the-train are strongly of the opinion
that whatever struck the window came
from a gun .'.This, conviction is based
on the loud report which was heard,
all through the coach. We regret to
say no clue to the perpetrator has been
obtained up .to now*.

From Earthquake Disturbances—Thorough
Quake Felt, in Many Cities
on the-Prairie
WINNIPEG, .May 17—That it was
safe ' from earthquakes had been the
fixed idea of the Canadian prairie west
' until Saturday "evening last when seismic disturbances   were   recorded   of
, practically over 1000 square miles of
territory from the foot of lake Winnipeg in the east to Southern1 Alberta,
lying under the shadow of the Rockies,
and running from the heart of the
state of Montana as far north as telegraphic wires have been carried. The
, shocks appear to have been most severe along the main line of the C. P.
R. between Brandon and Medicino Hat
but- without recording instruments to
rely upon, the comparative severity is
at best, but guess work, and the noteworthy feature Is that the larger centres report the worst disturbances, ap-
■ parcn'lly because they were felt worse
in high buildings.
In Brandon temporary damage was
done to the lighting plant and the
same occurred at Wolseley where ihe
well of the lighting plant caved in just
before the shock, plunging tlie town
iu darkness. At Grenfell the shock
was so severe that horses .travelling
on the road had difficulty in keeping
their feet.
In Winnipeg, at Saskatoon, at Regina, Moose Jaw, Medicine Hat and
other places the peoplo rushed wildly
out of their houses expecting worse to
follow, and if is reported that several
people fully expected that the end of
the world had come.
Curious, too, it is reported from Regina that the buildings most shaken
there were the best, built of steel and
concreted while older buildings   with
perhaps more give and take, withstood
the shock. Farmers near Medicine
Hat thought the quake was due to the
fearful explosion of gun cotton stored
there, while in several cases rumbling
as of thunder was reported to have
immediately preceded the shocks, generally lasting twenty seconds, from
two to four in number at 22.17 central
time, though one locality reports u
final shock as having-occurred about
midnight. "*
It is not too much to say that tho
event has astounded the west. Nothing else ,1s talkod about. Prof. Allen
of Manitoba university encourages* the
belief that it has never happened before and may never happen again.
Further reports as to the earthquake
which occurred in the west Saturday
night confirm the impression that '.he
disturbance was confined to the southern part of the prairie country.
Nothing was felt at Vancouver and
at no point on the coast, Calgary .being the farthest west of any point to
feel the jolt, and there only the faint-
est trSmor was perceptible. At the
eastern end the disturbance did not
spread beyond Winnipeg..
Southerly it extended into Minnesota
and northerly to Prince Albert, but
at both of these exteremes the shock
was slight.,,
Moose Jaw and Regina were the
centres of the disturbance.
No damage was done anywhere. A
second has evidently occurred through
some parts of the country following morning. The shock was felt
in Montana and'was recorded on the
instruments at Toronto.

SEATTLE, Wash. May 20—Probably
the most notable characteristic of.the
Pay Streak of the Alaska Yukon Pacific exposition is the unusual number of
"shows' which have high educational
value. '
.- As a usual thing the-amu'sement way
of an exposition is ■ all straight fun,
character, but at Seattle it is a different proposition. Absolute cleanliness
has been insisted upon and the directors have accepted attractions of only
the highest, class.
i At- the St. Louis Exposition the
Battle of. the Monitor and the Merrimack took the gold medal for excellence ovor all other amusement features exhibited on the Pike. It was
more intensely interesting, of a higher educational value and more ingenious Xrora a mechanical standpoint
than any other shown.
It Is reproduced with the same caro
on tho Pay Streak and Emmet McCon-
nell, probably the best known showman In America, thc owner of the attraction, Is porso*jnlly supervising Its
Installation, which will cost In all
$2-10,000.    °
The hnttlo Is a faithful reproduction
ofthe fnmous civil war action whleh
saved tho union at one of,tho most
critical junctures. Not only nro tho
two war boats seen In action, but every movo and overy cannon shot Is
historically correct.
The Uattle of Gettysburg, another of
McConnell's big cycloramn, Is shown
In a Hopnnrto building, and ranks noxt
fo tho .Monitor and Merrimack in excitement and Interest,
Captain Bnbor's trlbo of Slhorlnn
Eskimo, In thoir village nt tho head of
the* Pay Streak will nlso provo a big
attraction lo those Inclined to look
for tlio sorioim nnd Instructive side of
tho exposition as well ah thoso Rooking

IHE  last  of  the  transparencies
died out,   The dim  and-"Infrequent oil lamps alone lit up the
Streetof the Fountain and St Michael's square! They reveled still down
nt the Hotel de Paris, -whither Max von
Hollbrandt  arid  a' dozen  others  had
hurried with the news of the evening's
great event.   But here, ou the borders
of the'old north quarter, all grew still—
the Golden Lion empty, the townsmen
to their beds, the soldiers to barracks.
Cull of talk and feara and threats.   Yet
a light still burned in the round room
In tho keep of Suleiman's tower.., and
the commandant's servant still expected his royal master.    Peter Vasslp, a
sturdy son of Volsenl, had no apprehensions, but ho was very sleepy, and he
and the sentries were the only men
awake.   "One might ns well be n 6ol-
dler at once!", he grumbled, for the men
of the hills did not esteem-the regular
army so high as it rated itself.
'  Ttie   commandant' lingered   in   the
Street of the Fountain. Serglus Stefan-
ovitch was half a Bourbon, but It was
the   intellectual' half.     He   had   the
strong,   concentrated,   rather   narrow
mind of a Bourbon of before the family -decadence."' On it his training at
Vienna   hnd  grafted   a  military   precision, perbaps n pedantry, and no little added scorn of what men called liberty  arid citizens called ..civil   rights.
What  rights had a   man  against his
country?   nis country was Jn his king,
and to the king the army was his supreme instrument    So ran his public
creed,  his statesman's  instinct    But
beside the  Bourbon   mother was the
Kravonian father, and behind him the
long line of mingled and vacillating fortunes which drew de.scent from Stefan,
lord of Praslok. and famous reiver of
lowland herds;   In that stock the temperament   was   different—indolent   to
excess sometimes, ardent  to madness
nt others, moderate'seldom.' ■
And for'any young man'the Dght ln
the fantastically Illuminated night the
virgin with the broken lamp, a near
touch of the scythe of death and a girl's
"white face at the window? Behind the
commandant's stern, wrath—nay. beside, and soon before it for the moment dazzling his angry eyes—came
thebrigbt. gleams of romance.  ,
He knew who lodged at the "sign of
-the-Sllver Oock.   Marie Zerkovitch was

The journalist was back now
from tlie battlefields of France and was
writing articles for the. Patriot, tbe
leading paper of. Slavna. He was deep
dn the prince's confidence, and his little house on the south boulevard often
received thla distinguished guest The
prince had been keen to bear from "Zerkovitch of the bnttles, from Marie of
the life in Paris, With Marie's .tale
came the name and what she knew of
the story of Sophie de Gruche.' Yet always, ln spite of lier p'raises of her
friend, Marie had avoided any opportunity of presenting her to the prince.
Excuse on excuse, she made, for his
curiosity ranged around Casimir de
Savres' bereaved lover, **Oh, I shall
meet her some day, nil tho Bame," he
had said, laughlug, and Mario doubted
whether her reluctance—o reluctance
to herself strnngeyhnd not missed its
mark, Inflaming an Interest which it
had meant to balk. Why this strange
roluctanco? So far it was proved bnso*
loss, Ills Orst encounter with thc lady
of tho rod star—Cnslmlr's poetical sobrl*
quet had passed Mario's llps-lmd been
Riipromoly fortunate.
From the splash of blood to tlw broken virgin, from tho broken virgin to

She struck (ho match. Hor faco come

"Why did they .attack youT
He told her of the special grudge
which Mistiteh and his company had
against him and added: "But they all
hate me except my own fellows, from
Volsenl.   I have a hundred of them In
Suleiman's tower, and they're stanch
enough." '      .     „
"Why do they bate you?"

They're encouraged to laziness and to

city is left defenseless. I have no big
guns." H6 broke suddenly,into a low
laugh. "There—that's whatZeikovitch
calls my fixed idea. He declares ifs
written on my heart—big guns!"
"If you had them you'd'be master?"
"I could make some attempt at a defense, anyhow. At least we could cover a retreat to the hills if war came."
He'paused. "And . in peace—yes, I
should be master of Slavna;' I'd bring
men from Volsenl to serve the guns."
His voice had grown vindictive. "Stenovics knows that'I think." He roused
himself again"and„spoke to her earnestly. "Listen. This fellow Mistiteh
is a great hero with the soldiers and
the mob. When I have him shot as I
shall, not on my own account—I could
<-have— killed—him—tonlf'ht-^but—for—the
sake of discipline, there will very likely be a,disturbance. What you did tonight will be all over the city by tomorrow morning. If you see any

"My father likes mo. We're good

ING ALEXIS was minded that
all proper recognition should
■j be made of Sophy's service to
his fanilly. It had been her
fortune to protect a life very precious
in his eyes. - Alien from his son in temperament and "pursuits, he had, none
the' less, considerable affection for him.
Butr there was more than this. With
the prince was bound up the one strong
feeling of a nature otherwise easy and
, careless^ The king might go fishing
on most lawful days, but it was always
a Stefanovitch who fished—a prince
who had married a princess of a great
house and had felt able to offer Countess Ellenburg no more than a morganatic union. The work his marriage had
begun his son's was to complete. The
royal house of Kravonia was still on
its promotion. It lay with the prince to!
make Its rank acknowledged and secure.
Thus Sophy's action loomed large in
the king's eyes, and he was indolently
indifferent to the view taken of it.In
the barrack rooms and the drinking
shops 8f Slavna. Two days after Mis-
titch's attempt he received Sophy at
the palace with every circumstance of
compliment The prin'ce was not present—he made military duty nn excuse-
but Countess Ellenburg and her littlo
son were ln the room, and General Stenovics, with .Markart In attendance,
stood beside the king's chair.
Sophy saw u tall, handsome, elderly
man, with thick iron gray hair most
artfully arranged. The care of It was
no small part of the duty, of Lepage,
the king's French body servant His
majesty's manners were dignified, but
not* formal.- The warmth of greeting
whii*h he had prepared for Sophy was
evidently increased by the impression
her appearance made on him. He
thanked her in terms of almost overwhelming gratitude.
"You have preserved the future of
my family and of our dynasty," he
Countess Ellenburg closed ber long,
narrow eyes. Everything about her was
long and narrow, fifom her eyes to ber
views, taking in on the way her nose
and lier chin. &tenovics glanced at her
with a smile of uneasy propitiation. It
was so' particularly Important to bo
gracious just now-gracious both over
the preservation of the' dynasty nnd
over its preserver.
"No gratitude can be too great „for
such a service, and no mark of gratitude too high."( He glanced around to
Markart and called good humoredly,
"You, Markart there, a chair for this
Markart got a chair.   Stenovics took
it from-him and, himself prepared, to
offer it to Sophy, but the* king rose,
took it and, with a low bow. presented
It to the favored object of his gratitude.   Sophy courtesied low, the king

There was n moment's silence. Sophy was still nervous ln such company.

General Stenovics, but sho spoke out

turned to his minister. The general
was surprised, too. but very suave.

Mrs. J. Minett- of 192 Thurbers Ave.
Providence, Rhode Island, lias been
cured by Zam-Buk of a bad leg, whicli
had defied all remedies for sixty long
years." She say's: "When a child of 8
I was bitten on the leg by a dog. A
doctor cauterzied tho place but it never-healed up soundly and I have suffered with an ulcerated leg for over GO
years. This occurred in England, and
many English doctors tried in vain to
heal the sore. At one time I was an
in-patient at the East "Suffolk hospital
for a long period, and for three years
I was in and out of hospitals. I was
continually in pain and tbe sore would
not heal but discharge.
Twelve months ago I came 'out here
to my daughter and during the voyage
I had to keep my bed. The ship's doctor examined-my leg and gave me*a
plaster which'I had to take off again
as it made the pain so Intense. When
I reached my daughter's houso she
sent for a medical man who examined
it, but said'that nothing could-ever do
it any good, and although I tried other
American doctors they did good.
They sai dthat my leg would never, be
"well. •  ' —"—■"" 1.
"One day my youngest daughter
brought home a box.of Zam-Bulc and
induced"me to try it. With the first
application'! seemed to find ease and
further treatment f?ith Zam-Buk * appeared to do me so much good that I
sent for a'proper supply,. I kept on
with the Zam-Buk treatment and soon
saw that the wound was getting better,' The discharge was reduced and
the pain was eased. I- persevered
with the Zam-Buk, and to cut u long
story short, lt effected a euro, lt Ir
marvellous to think that after suffering for sixty years, Zam-Buk has been
able',to make my leg perfectly sound.".

and purity. Purely herbal, It Is superior to all known remedies for chronic sores nnd wounds, eczema, salt
