THOUSANDS
WERE KILLED
In San Francisco—The Tale of
Death Not Half Told. A
Sensational Statement.—
Innocent People Murdered.
, Woi'iioiit, and travel-stained, two
San Francisco refugees Ottllod on acting Mayor Bethiine to day at Ihe Cily
Hull, looking for employment, suys
the Vancouver Province. They were
Messrs. II. S, Howard and John Fox,
brothers in-law. Roth arc British
subjects They were accompanied
here by their families and the lather
of Mr. Howard. Free transportation
was provided them as far ns Suniiis
Junction.
The refugees confirm recent reports
that the real truth ol the magnitude
of tho disaster, and the reign ol horror
which followed bus not half been told.
Howard is a young Englishman of
twenty:five. Ho wns formerly a street
car conductor in the devastated city.
He still wore the uniform resplendent
with brass buttons.
On his breast was pinned his South
African medal.
" I only saved the medal and this
suit of clothing," snid he in conversation with the noting Mayor and a
Province representative to-day. "However, I feel grateful that my family
escaped alive. The real truth about
the destruction of life and property
itill'never be known.
"It will be many years, perhaps
never, before the city is rebuilt in its
former splendor. From thc very outset the Native Sons, a strong order,
appreciated the effect if real conditions
were sent to the outside [.reus, so with
systematic cleverness amidst the general ch os Bteps were taken to censor
every line which was telegraphed the
press. The killed and burned numbered thousands instead of hundreds.
Why, there were over 300 victims
aloue in the Brunswiok, a hotel which
collapsed during the lirst shock. Two
stories sank beneath the pavement,
and to add to the horrors the imprisoned guests, at least those who were
not killed outright, mot death by
burning. Thero were at loast seventeen shucks the first day, and between
forty and fifty during the remainder of
the week. My dwelling, along with
thousands ol others, fell a prey to the
flames We did not save a single
article. Wo slept in a square for'
several days.
"Scores of people were shut by the
National Guard and cadets. Of course
many ol the looters richly deserved it,
but unfortunately many innocent parties suffered. The bluejackets and
regulars showed better judgment. I
saw a drunken man reeling down the
street near tbe docks. He was utterly
unconscious of anything except an idea
ol getting to a place of aaloty Irom the
oncoming Humes. A sentry bailed
him, and when the man kept his
course a bullet through the buck
brought him to the ground, killing
lilm Instantly, A moment later a
sentry leveled his musket at three
Chinese, who, quaking with terror,
were compelled to curry the body lo
the slip and dump It into the bay.
This wns only one of a score of ihe
exciling scones I witnessed.
"Uptown nn Mason street, near Vallejo street, the lieutenant in charge ol
tin- district authorized the people to
help themselves to the supplies in a
large grocery store. The ollicer wns
called elsewhere, and in his absence u
in i 1 i I in n ih i i appeared on the scene, As
he turned the corner he espied a man
breaking a paun ol glass in tbe store
in older to reach a bottle ol liquor,
Without a word ol warning tho soldier
bayoneted the unfortunate. A gimp
escaped the dying man's lips as' he
lell to the pavement lifeless, as Ids
blood trickled into the gutter.
"Chinatown probably furnished the
biggest list ill victims. Hundreds
must have been killed there by the
collapse ot the underground burrows,
Tho disaster occurred at an hour when
the opium fiends wore sleeping oil' i lm
Insidious funics. Alas! scores ol depraved whito women who haunted
these dens met a similar fate.

could justify much of the wanton

Howard.
Will Never be Known
"The real horrors and trsgedie, ol
the disaster will never be known. The
number of personB killed by lulling
buildings or by burning was probably
over live thousand. The real facts are
being suppressed. San Francisco was
virtually wiped out. In my opinion
it will never be rebuilt on the same
scale. The exodus of people has al
ready started. All the coast cities,
especially Seattle, are bound to be
benefitted accordingly." so says Mr,
Frank Bodwell to the Vancouver
Province on his return from San Fran
Two Shocks Felt at 'Frisco
San Francisco, May 1—Two slight
earthquake shocks at an interval ol
an hour were felt here early today.
They were of the same nature as a
dozen other shocks that have been felt
since April 18. No damage was done,
and there was no alarm.
SAN FRANCISCO
A Tale ol Horror.
Refugees (nun San Francisco who
have arrived iu British Columbia say
the truth ot the uivlul disaster there
has been suppressed by the press and
at the dioation ol the great capit .lists
interested in that city. They declare
the loBS of life was enormous. Thousands were killed in the streets alone
by lulling I,nil,lings nr burned to
death. They ulso say the wholesale
manner iu which people were shot
down in tlie streets by the militury
amounted to little less than coldblooded massacre.
A NEW WOOD
DISCOVERED
By a Prospector—It Belongs
to Pine Family and Would
Make an Excellent Building
Material.
A well known prospector who lires
in Victoria called on tbe milli her*
last week with the statement that h*
had discovered a new wood on Vancouver Island. He stated that while
out prospecting lor mineral be happened to note that the branch ol *
green tree he was outting contained
no resin. He also noticed that he had
never seen a similar tree anywhere
else in the province, and being somewhat skilled in woods he made a thorough test of the tree. He found fflat
it was not mentioned in any books ol
reference as being peculiar to the soil
of British Columbia, in fact that it
had no name.
In submitting to test! he found that
the grain could be cut horiiontally or
at an angle without the wood being in
the least damaged; that it took on a
fine polish, wis prettily grained, contained no resin and wai of the pine
family. He considered it wai a fin*
building wood.
The milli however could not be induced to handle it as it oat rather
more to get ko the milli than th*
Douglas flr or oedar, being in a rather
remote portion ol Vancouver bland,
where a large forest of these trees ei-
ist.—Vancouver Province.
Mrs, T, Downs, who returned this
morning, says she wns staying at Oak-
laud, in the private partol the city
when the earthquake was experienced.
The experience was uwlul and caused
people to think the end had come.
The business partol the eity ol Oakland suffered severely though the residential part was not much injured.
But San Francisco was a veritable
horror. Mrs. Downs visited it alter
the lire and just lielore leaving lor
home and she says the terrible scene
ol desolation bellies description. She
was informed tho loss of life wai estimated at 5,000, which is probably
nearer the mark than anything yet
reported. Mrs. Downs was doing well,
steadily improving in health, as the
result of her stay in California, but
the awful shock quite upset her and
she was glad to leave the terrible
scene and return to her home in Revelitoke,

THE CANADIAN CLUB.
The Canadian Club is an organisation that has been suggested by
the.necessity of the business men
of the cities meeting together once
a fortnight at a dinner when an
address is delivered on some question agitating the public mind by
one qualified to discusi- it. Such
gatherings do great good. They
broaden the minds of the hearers,
create a desire for information and
promote co-operation of aim and
object. The cost of the orgunis-a-
tion is nothing beyond the forth-
nightly dinner. The club has been
successfully organised in most
Canadian cities of importance east
of the Rockies and we suggest that
Revelstoke set the example to the
cities west of the Rockies by organising a branch and holding regular
meetings.
A GREAT i'NDERTAKl.N'li.
Within five years according to a
FrenchCapiiiiliHts.il wil Ibe possible
to board a train in New York, and
without changing inr- to ride Into
Paris in a little over fourteen dayi.
The route will probably be bj New
York Central, Grand Trunk Pai ifi,
Alaska ami Bebriog 'trait. Tram-
Siberian uml Ibe regular European
system.
Tbe Czar has, Bays the World
Magazine, issued an imperial ukase
approving the all-rail route to
America. The ukase contains his
sanction of Ihe Russian commission
already named, to make the final
survey ol the route to Dchring Sea.
Thus what a few years ago would
have been a dream challenging (he
imagination ol a Jules Verne approaches an accomplished fact. The
railroad from Paris to New York
will be built. And this is by no
means all. Within a few years, in
all human probability, a continuous railway will oxtend from Cape
Horn at the tip of South America,
to the Cape of Good Hope, nt the
southern point of Africa. This
railroad acrosr five continents will
pass from the Western Hemisphere
to the Eastern Hemisphere through
n tunnel under Bebring Strait in
the Arctic Ocean. The men, the
plans and the money to complete
this great world railway ure ready
to begin the work. The line will
he 25,000 miles long. Over 15,000
miles of this distance trains arc
running today. All the remaining
portion—10,000 miles—bus been
surveyed nnd great enpitnlisUstnnil
ready to uisli the work.
Carnegie, who is one of these
capitalists, predicts the various
railways thnl, connected, will form
this complete world system through
live continents will nil be completed within 10 yours. A French
capitalist, who hns been even more
active in the great undertaking
limn Mr. Carnegie, declares that
the ride by rail from Pnris to New
York will bo made within live
years. The cost of completing this
round-the-world trunk line is estimated at $500,000,000, nn amount
but little exceeding that involved
today in projected engineering
schemes in and around New York
city.
M. Loieg de Lobel, the projector
of the trans-Siberian-Alaska line,
first interested Parisian capital in
his plan a few years ago. und a
survey was made at an expense of
$500,000 of a strip sixteen miles in
width from Irkutsk, on the tranB-
Siberian Railroad, to East Cape,
3,800 miles, the route following the
rich agricultural and minera
regions. M. Lobel's original project was a ferry or bridge across
Behring Strait, but bis present plan
is to tunnel the strait, it strip of
water thirty-six miles wide, divide!
by the Diomede Islands.
The trip from New Ymk to Paris
by rail through thc Bohring Strait
tunnel, as an express train running
forty miles an hour, will occupy a
little more than two weeks. The
traveler who fears-seasickness and
particularly enjoys life on a railroad train mny prefer this journey
to that on thc fast ocean liner,
which makes the trip to Paris an
expenditure of hut six days of time.
"Tlie 'New York to Paris Special,' " he says, "will doubtless he-
gin its westward trip over the
tracks of the New York Central,
nnd then via the new Trnns-Cnn-
adinn railway, now under course of
construction, to a seaport on the
border between British Columbia
and Alaska. Colorado capitalists
have organised a cunipany capitalised at $50,000,000 to carry Ihe
railway through Alaska to Behring
Strait, from which point M. de
Lobel will continue the construction, with money partly raised in
America, via the route originally
surveyed bv our own Keiinon for
the overland New York to Paris
telegraph line. M. de Lobel has
spent years in Siberia, and even
wintered at Behring Strait, while
liis engineers were surveying a
route for tlie thirty-six mile tunnel
under the waters dividing America
and Asia, and the 3,000 miles
across the Arctic regions to Lake
Baikal and the Trans-Siberian
Railway, over which ihe New York
to Paris Special will continue its
run to Moscow nnd Warsaw, ocross
7,000 miles of Russian Steppes."

saw it yesterday remarked to us they
could not turn out a better publication
at the Coast. The pamphlet wns
printed at tlie Maii.Hkrai.ii, Revelstoke.
ADVERTISING.
Its Value Recognised by the
Bible and Shakespeare.
The Bible contains thc word
"advertise" twice. One reference is
nliiiost a real estute advertisement In
itself. Boas counsels Ruth's kinsman
to buy it parcel of hind thut Naomi
hns come out of the hind of Monh to
sell:
"And 1 thought tc advertise thee,
saying. Buy it before the inhabitants,
and before the elders of my people.
II thou wilt redeem it, redeem it; but
if thou wilt not ii'dt-em it, then tell
me, that 1 may know; for there is
none to redeem it beside thee; und I
am niter thee. And he suid, 1 will
redeem it."— Ruth I   I.
The other Scriptural reference is a
use of the word as Shakespeare employed it, meaning to ini-,rm. us "We
are advertised by our loving Iriendi."
A in,,re modern use of the word is
found in -Much Ado About Nothing:"
"Therefore give me no counsel;
My griefs cry louder than advertise-
ment."—Act. V, Bcene 1.

HEROIC TRIO
CHECK FIRE
With Guncotton Cut a Wide
Swath at Beautiful Van
Ness Avenue.
San Francisco, April 30.—Three
heroes saved San Francisco—what is
lelt of it. They were the dynamite
squad that threw back tho lire at Van
Ness avenue.
When the city seemed doomed, Admiral McCalln sent a trio of his most
trusted men from Mare Island with
orders to check the conllagrution nt
and coit of life or property.
With them they brought a ton and
a hall ol gun cotton.
Captain MacBride was in charge of
the. squad. Chief Gunner Adunisnn
placed the charges and the third gunner set them off. The thunderous
detonations to which the terrified
cily listened all that dreadful Friday
night meant the salvation of 300,000
lives,
A million dollars' worth of property,
noble residences and worthless shacks,
were blown to drifting dust, but tbat
destruction broke the fire and sent the
raging llamci book over their own
charred path.
The whole east side ol Van Ness
avenue, from Golden Gate to Greenwich, was dynamited a block deep,
though most of the structures stcod
upon its foundation,
Van NeiB avenue is Hat as the earth
on theeaBt side. Every pound ol gun-
cotton did its work.
From Golden Gate avenue north
the fire crossed the wide street in but
one place, on the corner of California
street. There the flames were writhing up the walls before the dynamiters
could reach it.
Yet they made their way to the
foundations, carrying their explosives
despite the furnace-like heat,
The charge bad to be placed so
swiftly and thc fuse lighted in such a
hurry that the explosion was not quite
successful from the trained viewpoint
ol the gunners
But though tlie walls still stood, it
wns only an empty victory for the
fire, as hare brick aud smoking ruins
are poor food for flames.
paptain MscBride's dynamiting
squad realised that a stand was hopeless except on Van Ness avenue. They
could have forced their explosives
farther in the burning section, but not
a pound of guncotton Could be or whs
wasted. The rained block Hint met
the wide thoroughfare formed a trench
through the clustered structures that
the conflagration, wild as it was, could
not leap.
Engines pumping brine through
Fort Mason from the bay, completed
the little work that the guncotton had
left, but for three days the haggard-
eyed firemen guarded the flickering
ruini.
The desolate waste straight through
the heart ol the city is a mute witness
to the most heroic and effective work
of the whole calamity.
Three men did this, and when their
work was over and wliat stood ot the
city rested quietly for the first time,
they departed as modestly ss they
had come. They were ordered to save
San Francisco, and they obeyed orders.
Captain MacBride nnd his two gun.
ueri made history on that dreadful
night,
JIM HILLS PLANS.
Referring to the Great Northern'!
propoied transcontinental Hue one ol
Jim Hill's contractor's says:
"The work will be easy until we
reach the Rocky Mountains. We aro
prepared to complete six miles ol road
a day up to that point, However, the
engineer! have found a very short
route through one of the valleys of the
Rockies and we hope to cover iii
miles in an air line with nine miles ol
track which is 60 per oent better than
the Canadian Pacific has done. It is
estimated that we can move over this
grade thirty freight oars loaded, whore-
ai the Canadian Pacific can move but
leven can with (our looomotives. Wc
shall need not more than two looomo
lives lor the nine mile ri|n with thirty
oars. These are all the iteep grades
to encounter on the new line until we
reach tho vicinity of Nelson, B. 11.,
and here the engineers are working
for a lower grade than they found on
their first survoy, However, our contract is from Winnipeg to the Pacilic
coast, tnd whether it be up or down
wo mint complete it within one year,
and are ducat Edmonton in time to
move tlie lall crop ol grain,"
PRE-EMPTION CASE.
Title Sustained.
Commissioner H.A. Renwick ha-
given his decision on thedispii'ed preemption title lo lund near Nakusp,
declining to cancel the record of Oapt.
C. Bncher, which wns attacked by
Miles Carroll.
C Bncher is master of a dredge at
Nnkusp. M. Carroll is employed as n
carpenter in Nakusp. Neither could
fulfil the legal requirements. But ns
thc cancelling ol tlie record would
cause the pre-emptor to forfeit his improvements on the land whioh are
worth about $400 and an this wns the
first case ol a disputed pre-emption in
which tho holder had made any attempt to fulfil the requirement!, the
commissioner decided to sustain the
record.
Formal notice was given to both
claimants that bona fide resilience on
the pre-emption is a necessary condition to obtaining a valid title.
STICK TO YOUR TOWN.

of Revelstoke and other towns would
do well to lay to heart. Here is the

shall bo members i>t the executive
committee, and the wool.' of the assets
ol the Tourist Association and its
organization to be available for the
work of the enlarged association under
the title agreed upon.

Catholic subjects ol the Empire lor a
change in the King's Declaration, on
tlie ground ol the nffensiveness of its
terms. Dues it not behove Rome to
change the terms of her vows and
oaths before urging such a plea?
No one can object to the PrincesB
Ena changing her religion. It is her
undoubted right. The wisdom ol it is
open to question. The so; row and
sadness of it is apparent. As to her
sincerity and motives they are a mnttr
of opinion. I am not disposed to
worry over the distinction between
the words "vow" and "oath". In this
case it is childish, There is a grim
humor in the frequent use of the word
"false" by the Rev. Father in the face
of tbe vow published by him.
Yours very truly,
W. C. CALDER.
