LATEST RETURNS OF OUTPUT
What the Mines are Doing Over the
District—Boundary in the
Lead.
The shipments for the week, not
of course including tomorrow
amount to over 4,000 tons which
total not very many months ago
was   considered very   respectable.
Of course it ought to have totalled another ten thousand tons more
but if the utterance oi ex Mayor
Qoodeve at a recent public meeting
is to be trusted, and he declared
himself in a position to know, it
will not be long before come such
amount will be weekly exported
from this city. From other infor-
motion the World is of the opinion that the statement is probably
very near the truth.
With the exception of the visit
of the Le Roi No 2 directors to that
mine there is nothing of interest
which has occurred during the
week. The upBhot of the directors
visit has yet to be learned.
The shipments of ore from the
camp since January 1, are subjoined. While the shipments ior
the past week can only be approximately given, those for the previous period have been corrected
and give the gross wet weight in
short tons of 2000 pounds.

A Terrible Explosion at Coal

N orth wast Territory-
Winnipeg, May 22.—The general elections were held yesterday
throughout theNorthwost territories
and resulted in the government,
led by Mr. Haultain, being sub-
You will not be disappointed. Union made tained by a large majority.
Special to the Evening World,
Fernie, B. C, May 23.—A
terrible explosion occurred at
7 o'clock: last evening in the No. 2
mine, which iB connected with No.
3 shaft, and also with the high line
shaft. All three openings were
wrecked.
One hundred and fifty men were
at work at the time of tbe explosion.
Of this number 16 escaped from
No. 3 before the cave in. The remainder of the workmen were
caught and small hopes are entertained for their safety.
Good order prevailed and everything possible is being done to relieve the situation. The fan was
disabled but was quickly repaired.
No. 3 iB expected  to be open soon.
A boy, one of those who escaped,
has since died.
So far only six bodies of the 134
victims have been recovered.
1 he cause of the explosion is said
to have been due to fire damp igniting from a match with which a
miner was lighting a pipe in defiance of orders.
A tremendous explosion occurred
in the mine, followed in a few seconds by an explosion in No. 3, connected with No. 2 by a short tunnel.
The majority of the men were in
No. 3.
Every family in the town is directly affected by the calamity, and
the entire surviving population is
in a state of frenzy.
Immediately upon the receipt of
of the news of the Fernie mine disaster Mayor Manson, of Nanaimo,
whicb has a population of about
1000 coal miners, authorised the
taking of subscriptions at the gules
leading to the grounds where a cel-
bration is being held today and
tomorrow. The amount will be
donated to the suffering at Fernie.
The scenes at the mines and in
the village of Fernie are heart
rending. Hardly a house has
caped affliction. The work of rescue is being hurried and perfect
order prevails, assistance coming
from every available source. The
presence of coal damp is adding to
the danger of the rescue work.
People are hoping against bope
frat it is unlikely tbat any of the
miners now entombed in the shafts
will be seen again alive.
A  new fear has become general
at the pits, that the mines may
catch fire at any time, and survivors are being besought by their relations not to venture into the
shafts even for rescue work.
Nos. 2 and 3 shafts are situated
six miles from Fernie. They have
always been considered dangerous,
being dry, dusty and gaseous. Although wet experts always maintained that No. 3 would be affected
by an explosion, it has been
generally recognized that No. 2
was especially dangerous. However, the work is progressing with
as much expedition as is deemed
practicable.
Another Account.
Fort Steele, B.C., May 23.—A
terrible explosion occurred in the
mines of the Crow's Nest Coal Co,
at Coal Creek, Feinie, last night at
7.30 p. m., entombing over 160
miners and Betting the mine on fire.
Several were taken out from near
the entrance, dead, and the re
mainder have all perished either by
suffocation or by being burnt to
death. The coal company has
shut off all communication between
the mine and the town and no fur
ther particulars are obtainable.
No explanation has yet been
made aB to the cause of explosion.
The Crows Nest mines in whichjthe
explosion occured are situated on
Coal Creek six miles from Fernie,
having immediate connection with
the   lown by rail and telephone.
There are three working seams
at Coal Creek which have been
extensively developed and which
gave employment to nearly one
thousand men.
Many nationalities are represented by theworking force at mine,
the Slav element being prodominent,
although Scandinavians, Italians
English and Welsh minerB are well
represented. Tbe mines are work
ed from levels. There is no as
cending or descending in cages.
The ventilation of the mine and
the removal of inllammablo gases
was carefully looked after by the
management, the most modern system of ventilating plants having
been installed.
ThiB is the worst fatality that
has ever occurred in Southeast
Kootenay.
Latest.—No detailed report of tho
disaster is as yet obtainable, but it
is creditably reported that 140 men
are yet entombed.

SCHOOLS   MUST NOT CLOSE
Grant in Aid Obtained   From  Reluctant Government  at
Victoria.
Victoria, May 23 —(Special.)—I
got the government yesterday to
promise that the Rossland pchools
should receive $3000 additional:
Rossland.when necessary, completing its school. The teachers are to
remain. John Houston, M. L. A. for
Nelson, strongly supported my request.
Smith Curtis.
On the receipt of the above telegram its contents were instantly
communicated to Mayor Clute who
was of the opinion that the grant
of $3000 was conditional on the
teachers remaining, and thatit'pre-
sented no way But of the present
imbroglio. Its substance, however,
will be communicated to a special
meeting to be held  this afternoon.
Mayor Clute had asked- the government to accede to a request for
$3700 for completing the school
building handed over unfurnished,
and he ie of the opinion that tho
government has at laBt acceded to
the request, tacking to it the condition above stated.
Mayor Clute says, however, that
there is not any question of the
pchoolB closing. It was never tho
intention to close the schools in
any case. There traa it chpi.c-.
however that the government woulu.
do something.
On it being suggested to him that
the grant might be applied to ordinary revenues for the upkeep
Mayor Clute replied that ho
thought that the money could not
be intended in that way. Nor was
there any likelihood that the city
would be permitted to use this
money for upkeep and afterwnrils
make up the sum from the general
funds at a later date and complete
the said schools.
It will be noted by readers of it he
Woiii.D that after every one else
had failed the member for Hossland succeeded in getting the grant
desired deBpite certain half veiled
sneers to the effect that tlie position
assumed by the member for thia
district would render any efforts
made by him on this city's behalf
entirely nugatory.
Both Curtis and Houston should
receive the publicly expressed
thanks of this city.

NEAR SELF-DENIAL WEEK
Salvation Army Wishes to Raise S300
Locally.
The Salvation Army is on the
eve of itB self-denial week, and considerable activity iB evident
amongst Its members. It seem?
that they are confident of obtaining
their share toward the sum of $28,-
000 which is to be raised through-
this territory. The local target, as
itis termed in army parlance, is
$300. The army by its past work
ie probably entitled to sullicient
sympathy to guarantee that sum
being donated.

THAT POLL TAX.
One of the biggest swindles that
id being perpetrated today in this
country is the employment agency
as it is known in several of the
coast cities and elsewhere. The
method is simply that an employment agent and an employer of
labor, say a railway contractor,
come to a mutual understanding
that every man the agent sends to
the work shall be taken on, bul
not for more than a few weeks.
His place then becomes vacant and
another man is sent. Each man
taking the job is mulcted a day's
wages and on this the two rascals
go shares.
Apply this well known dodge to
the poll tax and RosBland can get
out of itB troubles quickly enough.
All the poll tax collector haB to do
is to make arrangements with the
employers of labor in this camp to
fire every man after a few week's
w irk and then blacklist him. He
has to get out of camp. Another
man can be imported, preferably
from Joplin. Fine him $5 for
working and then fire him. Then
play the game again. Of course
the civic authorities would not do
it. They are too honest. Yet Ingram would know where to find
the men. So might Lamb. But
not for a moment would mining
operators who believe in a board
ing house paystreak consent to so
iniquitous a scheme. They are
alBO too honest. It is really a pity
that our governors are so virtuous,
for no one would object to the men
-gottiug jobbed. They are stated to
be the best off clasB in the community anyway.
up so quick that some of our city
authorities would rub their sleepy
eyes and want to know what had
happened. Fires are chiefly
dangerous at night and this is just
the very time when the whole force
would be present. There could be
ihe usual drills, and there is no
reason why Rossland Bhould not
have equally as efficient a volunteer brigade as any other city of its
size within the Dominion.
As to the likelihood of the fire insurance companies raising their
rates, i' i* little. They would be
more likely to raise them, as experience has shewn, if the brigade
bought a couple more teams, increased ihe salary of the chief and
built a million dollar reservoir.
Besides, this matter is in the
hands of the property owners.
If they really want to get leBB
rateB it is up to the merchants of
this city to join in with Nelson,
Trail, Grand Forks, Greenwood,
Phoenix, etc., and establish a system of mutual insurance Buch as
has been done of recent years in
California, Oregon and Washington, not to talk of other eastern
states, with the result that the coBt
of insurance has been practically
cut in half. The regular insurance
companies will not cut rates. But
the system is wrong. Whenever a
disastrous fire occurs in the east,
where rates are low, the rates in
the west, which are high, are immediately made more bo. Rates
cannot very well be put up in the
east because competition is keener.
But this is no concern of the insurer. Let him get in and protect
himself, and when he is paying
something like three and four cenls
instead of seven and eight for hiB
protection with a fire brigade that
costs half the present sum he will
ihen be inclined to give the teachers the salaries they deEerve, and
the citizens that library for which
they voted.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
FIRE BRIGADE.
Two communications have reached the Would re possibilities of retrenchment, one pointing out the
possibility of an increased fire
brigade at a less cost by putting it
on a volunteer baBis, and the other
pointing out that there would be
more ratepayer's money available
for other purposes could the fire insurance rates he brought down to n
reasonable figure, and suggesting
a means of doing so There is n
great deal in what is urged nnd the
Would presents the subsiance of
the arguments inviting discussion
on the points raised.
If there iB anything of which the
average citizen of Rossland is proud
it is the fire brigade. And if there
is anything of which he is not
proud it is the amount that is paid
for insurance. The city lias pone
on increasing the efficiency of the
fire service until such time as it
has one of the best, if not actually
the best, in the province. But Under present conditions can such n
Bervice be afforded? It is absolutely necessary that the city 8'iould
be protected from fire. It is a false
economy that suggesls paring
along this line.
Many a city of this size in this
country has no paid fire brigade
Their fire insurance rates are no
higher and the efficiency of the
Bervice is as great. Suppose that
the city council see that every man
be discharged from the fire brigade
with the exception of a driver, who
can look after the horses and an
electrician, either one of whom car
be chief. For the rank and file
there are plenty of young and active Canadians in this city who
would act as volunteer firemen on
the consideration of a comfortable
quarters at night, including the
use of a nice club room. Thoranks
mil the lire brigade would be filled
By the way the cost of the load
scraper, $300, which iB to be lopped
off the board of works estimates
will more than meet the difference
in the teachers salaries for the remainder of the year.
Ex-Mayor Goodeve and the general public of this city have little
in common. There is one point,
however, in which they agree, and
that is that this is the best city in the
province. But it is the ring of which
A. S. Goodeve is a shining light
which has put it where it stands
today. It is a good city, but it
ought to be consumedly better.
Municipal ownership is a business proposition that the most
timid of capitalists can well affun'
to investigate. As for the general
public, it is needless to repeat that
municipal ownership will ul -
mately solve the city's financial
problems, It will reduce general
taxation, which, by the way,Bhould
appeal strongly to the heaviest
taxpayers, as well as the smaller
ones.—Chicago American.

FIGURES TALK.
The fi th annual meeting of the shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto ou Mnrch 7th.
Th" net profits of ihe year after paying all
operating expenses and all charge of every kind,
amounted t> $207,848.39. Afler paying a dividend at the rate nf ten percent per annum, a balance of $28,142, 89 was carried forward to the
credit of profit nnd loss.
This company's assets are their coal mines
and t"e lownsi c of Fernie. Four years ago this
company ha 1 r.o transportation facilities, and their
st ck fold aB low as el ven cenls per share. Today their stock is selling at $90.
The Similkameen Valley Coal company limited, assets arc coal mines, timber, water piwer,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
w< rks, electric light plant and the townsite nf
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime, fire clay,
platinum, and a fine s'ockraising country, and it

You can secure an option on this company's stock
by paying 10c per share down, and ten cents per
month uutilfully paid, wi h non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance

LAYING OF
THE CABLE
HOTEL  ARRIVALS.
First Section Has Already
Been Completed on the
Pacific.
The following details as to the
laying of the Pacific cable have
juBt arrived per steamer Miowera:
The connection from Brisbane to
Suva was completed on April 20th,
and on the 23rd the general traffic
was commenced. The rate charged
from Suva to Sydney is 36 cents
per word. The Anglia commenced
her work at Brisbane and laid the
first stretch of submarine cable to
Norfolk island, from which point
the deep sea cable was stretched in
the slime of the t c ian bed to New
Zealand, and thence to Suva.
The steamer Colonia, which sailed from Shields on the 7th of May,
and is now loading the cable in her
tanks near Greenwich, is expected
to arrive here about October next,
and she will at once commence the
work of laying the 3500 miles of
cable to Fanning island, where the
other end of the line will be
brought by the steamer Anglia,
and by the end of the present year
it iB expected that the deep sea
cables across the Pacific will be
carrying Canada's congratulations
to Australia and intervening points
on the connection between the
British continents of the north and
aouth.
The total length of the cable, including 10 per cent allowed for
slack, will be about 8000 nautical
miles. The longest span is that
from Kelp bay, on the south coast
of Vancouver island,   to
KOOTENAY.

"The mill waa started on the 4th

Malt Breakfast Food
A Breakfast Dish That
Pleases Every Palate
A food that pleaaea every palate,
aootbea the weakest stomach and
that aids digeation, means much
to those who, in the paat, have
not been able to fully enjoy the
first meal of the day—breakfast.
A breakfast that is not satisfying
or that ia not fully enjoyed, cannot
fit old or young for the dutiea of
the day.
Malt Breakfast Food not only
pleases the palates of young and
old by its delicious flavor.but it imparts to the body and brain a vim
and vigor that ordinary oatmeal,
and common food cannot give. It
is the Malt with all ita virtues and
valuable properties that does the
good work. Try thia grand health
food in your home if you are a
stranger to it. It givea a new
life and healthy appetite to the
dyapeptic vicim. Ask your grocer for Malt Breakfast Food.
Don't forget the baseball games between the Spokane High School and
