Oue hundred and lony eight blocks were

aeven persona lost their Uvea. A report
Was in circulation this morning that a

docks along the St. John'a river had
been forced to water, all attempts at
rescue by boats being futile. Tha river

The losses by the lire will not be

Hames waa thirteen blocks wide and
nearly two miles long. Practically all old
Jacksonville was destroyed, nothing
having- been left but a few suburbd and
Riverside, the most fashionable part u
the city. It "is be.isved tha fire is the
largest on reenrd in proportion to the
lize of the city.
The street car service has been at a
complete.. itandstill since yesterday

the number of homeless people in Ihe
city at 10,00j. Most of these B|ient the
night in the parks, 011 the docks, ai.d on
barges while some slept beside the te*
belongings they had managed to save
from the general wreck. The board of
trade and other commercial bodies held
meetings this morning to take action
looking to the alleviation of the suffering* It was expected an appeal to the
people of the United States, calling for
aid would be issued during the day.
Leading business men and inaurance
agents estimate the loss of properly at
from ten to fifteen million dollais, The
St. James hotel, which wis destroyed,

Jacksonville, Fla,, May 4—Mr. W.
W. Cleveland of whose premises the fire
originated, add who was one of the
heaviest losers, dropped dead from excitement. A stalwart negro, carrying a
trunk on his head from a burning building, went crasy from horror of the situation. He ran around in a circle with
the trunk on his head until he sank exhausted and died. Women ran through
tha streets tearing their hilr aud clothes
and in several instances had almost denuded themselves when they were
caught by friends and led to places of
safety, Horses hitched to trucks could
not be cut quickly enough and ran wild
through the demoralized throng. At
night the military was ordered oul to
guard the household goods piled high in
the si reels.
New Prussian Minister.
Berlin, May 4.—Iu well informed
quartern tlie representative of the
Associated Press heat's the sensational news that Emperor William
wants Count Seidlitz Trutschler. to
become Prussian minister of the
interior. The count is now chief
president of Hesse-Lassau, in Cassel, and was formerly Prussian
minister of education. It was
under his administration that the
famous school law was framed at
the instance of the emperor. Thia
law, however, was dropped eventu
ally because of the indignation it
aroused in liberal circles whereup-
Jon the count resigned. Be is still
a great favorite with the emperor,
the conservatives and the centrists.
His In ing summoned here is generally interpreted as a sign that reactionists will reign in the new
cabinet. ' Count JVon*■ Hue low- It -is
considered certain, will avoid everything that might offend the centre
and conservative parties and no
change in the system will be inaugurated, since the government
needs both the conservatives and
centrists in the reichstag.
The Associated Press hears further that Baron Rhein-Baden, minister of the interior, will succeed
Dr. Yon Miqiul as finance minister.

INFORMATION WANTED.
It must be perfectly well understood that it is not a pleasant matter to attack the professional reputation of—let us say—a mining
engineer or to seek unnecessarily to
pry into the affairs of an incorporated company. Anyone who
would attempt either of these undertakings out of the pure joy of
it, might vary well merit the silent
contempt of his fellow men. But
surely when the reputation of the
one and the affairs of the other
have reached the acute stage which
the War Eagle-Centre Star tangle
has, it maj be permitted to insist
upon a verjr clear explanation ol
affairs generally. So far as the
management of tbe two mines is
concerned sufficient has already
appeared in the columns of the Industrial World last fall to warrant
the directors in making it clear to
the general public and the shareholders just who was to blame for
the state of things then disclosed.
Otherwise it is a not unreasonable
deduction that a man who was re
sponsible for so many and so griev
ous minor mistakes was utterly unfitted for his higher duties.
Regarding tbe condition of the
mines—no matter who is to blame
for it.if blame is attachable—surely
those who followed, and confidently followed, Mr. Gooderham in his
mining ventures have every right
morally and otherwise to tbe fullest information, and all the more
so because they did not demand it
when first the troubles made their
appearance. In place of this open
policy being adopted and adopted
as a matter of course, those who
seek to obtain a proper statement
of facts and convey tbem truthfully to the public, are met with the
announcement "that Mr. Gooderham is much annoyed at the statements which have appeared in eastern Canadian papers and has given
instructions that in future no information of any kind whatever is
to be given out."
Think of it! remembering the
contrast when the poor public were
asked to subscribe for tbe shares of
both properties. Had the same
policy been adapted then would
the stock have been taken up at
any price? Who does not remember how all tbis camp rejoiced
when Mr. Gooderham s entry into
the mining field was announced
and what minute details were then
made public property?
The investing public took Mr.
Gooderhaa at his word aud not
only bought theshares but broadly,
paid -for both properties aud,
strange to say, Mr. Gooderham
was not at all annoyed. Now its
altogether different and, equally
strange to My, Mr. Gooderham is
annoyed. "Yon shall not know,"
and there you are.
If for a moment it be urged tbat
some one—Mr. Blackstock for instance— waa present at the shareholders meeting prepared to meet
all doubting Thomases and explain,
one can only recall that gentleman's oft repeated two assertions,
"really we know absolutely nothing about mining," and "we are
the laughing stock of the mining
community." We really must be
excused, we do not wish to hear
anything more of  Mr. Blaclcstock.
Several things are wanted. Is
the manager competent to handle
the mines and the men? If so, it
can be shown, if not,he should go.
Are the directors competent in exactly tbe same measure? If not,
they should make room for better
men!     What is the condition of
both mines today and how—exactly how—have they been managed
or the reverse.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Keeping proper tab on the ore
shipments is no easy matter at the
present time. The Centre Star
cars average 31  tons,  War Eagle
29 and Iron Mask about 18 or 20.
These are all C. P. R. cars. The
Great Northern have a class of 50-
ton cars which average about 40
tons loaded. Another lot of the
same class go higher. The Rossland Great Western loads average
30 tons and Le Roi No 2 about 28,
but the cars sometimes get mixed
up and it is difficult to measure
them out. The estimate given at
the eud of the week is generally
somewhat lower than the actual
total but later on this is obtained as
nearly as possible and the previous
figures corrected.
It was reported last night that
Wayne Darlington, tbe well known
mining engineer who is generally
harnessed up alongside the general
manager in the annual report of
the twin riiines, will drop in here
next week officially. He should
examine the "Barren" and let us
know how that gentleman assays
at present.
It is a very well recognized fact
in mining that with care—with
great care—it is possible even in
the best of rich mines to "keep
away" from ore. There are more
tricks in mining than in horse
dealing.—Daily Stockjobber.
A proposal to increase the amount
of the sessional indemnity of tbe
members of the legislature from
$600 to $800 must be regarded as
simply scandalous in the present
state of the provincial finances. ***
We are convinced that the people
of the province will be practically
unanimous in condemnation of this
increase of the indemnity to mem*

Slocan Shipment*.
Owing to the condition of the
road the Arlington has not yet
been able to send down any ore,
says the Slocan Drill, though
tbe teams have been hauling up a
needful supply of mining timbers
from near the sawmill. It is only
a question of a few days when the
mine will be shipping again at its
usual rate. As it is, the Arlington stands in second place next to
fie Payne as the leading shipper of
the Slocan. For the week closed
yesterday there has been 40 tons of
ore shipped from the division, 20
tons being from the Enterprise and
20 tons from the V & M, Twelve
Mile, which thus enters its initial
shipment. Altogether the shipments for the year from the division
total 1743 tons.

THE LARDEAU.
Outlook for the Coming Saaaon'a work
-Lead Camp Quint.
The assurance that the Canadian
Pacific will build iuto the Lardeau district this Bummer has had a remarkably
Stimulating effect on the outlook lor tbe
season.
While the majority of the La.-dean
mining properties are silver-lea 1 bearinji,
ahd hence affected by the slump io lead,
the country ni I go ahead, for the property owners interested are ba ki ,g on
the prospect of a turn in the market fot
the better before the railroad is completed.
Tfee Lardeau has labored under the
harden of transportation charges such as
would have deterred the development
of any camp. Il has been the rule that
ore under $60 would not net the shippers
anything because of the heavy trans por
tation charges.
As a result of this only a few ol the
richer claims have shipped in any quantity. With the railroad as far mirth as
Comop'iz Ihe properties in lhat district
can ship t3'-to (35 ore and realize a
profit. This means lhat a scoie of properties now in the prospect stage will be
developed to a (hipping basis.
The lead mining dis'rict is still practically dead, as no market ia yet open
for the ores. The mills are standing
idle and only a few w« tollmen aie
stationed al some of the principal mines.
Miners are leaving tbe camps to seek
work elsewhere where the conditions
are mote faajoraMe.

Labor  Day   Preparations in
Russia—How They  Fix
Things Over There.
St. Petersburg, May 4.—Many
male hIiiuViiIm, a number nf female
students, workingmen, liberal leaders, lawyers and HteraUmrs were
arrested and 500 houses were
searched here Thursday night, and
it is probable throughout European
Russia similar tactics were pursued.
The object of the move is to prevent demonstrations on Sunday
next which is regarded as Labor
Day- The advisability of the step
is considered by some to be questionable as it may easily provoke
trouble. Among the houses searched
were those of Professor Leehift, at
Director LeshifVs woman's college,
and Barrister Bornstatn. The
military have been posted near the
factories to prevent tha ' working
men from coming into the city.
Where did you get those pants? Why
I got them of R. D. McMillan the men li-
ant tailor, next door to tbeC.P.K. ticket

A Change ol Time'
A change of time will go into effect on
the Red Mountain railway tomorrow,
(Sunday ) The passenger train will
leave for Spokane at Ij:5o p.m , instead
of 11 :;o, as heretofore, and arrive from
Spokane at 4 p.m., Instead of 3:io p.m.,
as heretofore.
Our slock ot fine photographic mounts
and other supplied for making photographs is much too large and must be
reduced immediately. Io order to do
this we have reduced all prices on these
goods one-half. Do not wait but take
advantage of this reduction at once, as
there ia no telling how soon the price
will again be raised. There ia sure to
be an immense demand, which will reduce the stock very quickly. Remember
these pi ices only last until the present
stock is decreased.

There were seven shippers thip

of the Woeld, the total is a record
one for the camp, very close to 10 ■
000 tons going out. It is only
proper to Btate that a close revision
of these figures with the corrected
smelter weights will probably result in some slight reduction. As
this is the first week the World
man has taken the output, the
shippers for the week only aie
given. The total shipments of tlie
camp to date taking the miner's
figures to dato equal 138,717 tons.

Loot IsIReturned
New York, May 4.—Some fifty
cases of General Fry's loot from
China, including the Imperial

French government, have reach*l

It ia presumed that the fire started from
a disjointed stove pipe in the. attic.as the

Hit- liiv i-iiuiiiindiivvn through the celling.
Barkne had come off aloft,bad his break-
ast and was atdeep. He had a roll of
bills in his room and was obliged to leave
them, but later the roll was found a
little singed but enough of the bills remain to make tbe cash good. About
one half of the furniture was saved.
When the fire was first discovered,
in place ol at once turning in the alarm
the occupants began removing the furniture and consequently the lire gained
great headway before the brigade was
called upon. The lose was about J loo
aud there was no insurance.

The plant of the Tacoma Smelting
company is to he increased by the addition of an extensive copper converting
plant and a lead refine-y.
These improvem-nts will enable the
smelter to turn out bare carrying gold
and silver, which will be sold in this
firm to Ihe assay office.
The smelter will in future turn out
bars containing oq per cent, copper. A
blast furnace, new roasters and all re-
qui ile machinery of the most modern
patttro will be installed with the new
plant.
The expenditure, including improvements to the present smelter, will reach
nearly half a miilion dollars. Thecai-
acity of the smelter will be incieased
from 400 to 7^0 tons daily, and the force
of men will be increased from .Son to dim.

-At7:30 tlrii morning  an alarm was
turned in from box 41, at the corner of
Honita St. and Le Roi avenue.   At   the
time the team on the hose wagon were
out exercising on Columbia avenue but
the ebemical got away in a few seconds
and shotly after tbe hose wagon came
thundering along.   It is a big drop from
the Sre ball to box 41 which is in the
western gulch about nn a line with the
•Id Le Roi tramway,   it was stated tbat
one of tbe racing teams came to grief on
the run down or tbat the hose cart overturned but both   the chief and the assistant -.hiel deny this and say there was
na trouble of tbe kind.   The fire was in
the story and a half residence  of Mrs.
Barkui, who lives with her son a miner
at   the corner of Kootenay and   Yale
street.   The fire bad gained such headway when   the  men   arrived  that the
house waij>ractically gutted.   Once tbe
water was turned on the fire was quickly extinguished without further incident.

AFTER  BEAR.
Schofield's Expedition   Will
Start Monday Morning.   -    -v
After months of deliberation and preparation E.E.Schofield.Rpssland's well
known jeweller will start next Monday
on a lengthy bear hunt up in the I.ar-
deait country. Mr. Si-.holield did his
best to secure Ihe maxim from the
Rot key Mountain Rangers but General
Forin objected, he said, you never could
tell what might happen. Tbe Barren
might return or Mr. Parker might make
the census returns known, he talks of it
in his sleep—and then where would we
be. The Ottawa government were
equally obduate about a 12 pounder
from Victoria and tbe naval authorities
at Esquimault would not hear of "the
loan of one of your cannons for a few
months bear hunting north and east of
Rossland." So Mr. Sehofteldis merely
going to take a camera with a kodac
on tha side and a few rifles and shot
guns. It depends on the bears whether
Mr. Schollcld gets back.at all hut if he
gels enough of them and they don't :gct
any of him he will be at the old stand on
Columbia avenue in about, two weeks.
