75,000 Killed by Earthquake
and Tidal Wave— Disaster
Worst in History of the World
—Relief Committees at Work
Rome, Deo. 20.—A late edition of
the Tribin... here today estimates the
number of earthquake aud tidal wave
victims as between (iii.OOO and 75,000.
The Tribune says that twice that
many are injured and are suffering
desperately from hunger and exposure.
Relief committees are nulling food,
supplies and medical stors s to the
stricken sections. King Emmanuel
is on his way south and will assume
direction of the relief work. The fearful 1 ss of life uud horrible suffering
of the viciims is appalling. Reports
contiuue tn men n. e ihe h rroi of the
di-tister.   Hundreds ol thousands are
ll   llll.-lens null  must of   till III    alt   Willi-
out food. All the seismic iippurntus
in Italy was broken by the shocks.'
The soldiers ure doing good work in
tho sections visited by tho disaster.
In Dearly all citiej orders have been
given to shoot down looters, and those
ord' rs have been carried out in many
cases. The heaviest damage was done
at Messina, iu Sicily, and Beggio, in
Calabria, across the straits [rum Messina. Few reports have come from
Reggie, but they indicate that lho city
was shaken terrifically and that the
lots of life was heavy. It is the capital
of the province of Reggio tli Calabria
aud is a city of about 60,000 inhabitants.
The destruction of Messina was more
tbe result of the tidal wave than of
tbe earthquake, according to the testimony of a trainload of refugees who
bave arrived at Catania from Messina.
Tbey say the dead officially reported
at Messina cumbered 1800 but asserted
tbat this would fall far below the correct estimate, which tbey Baid should
be at loaBt 12,000.
A serious clash between the soldiers
and looters at Messina today resulted
in a number ol deaths. The soldiers
lired on the looters and drove tbem
into the mountains.
General Costa, who in addition to
bis military position, is an archbishop,
commander of the garrison at Messina
is among tbe dead.
Several hundred foreigners, including many English and Americans,
were iu Messina at the time of tbe
disaster. No word has been received
from any of tbem and it is (eared all
hnve perished.

Paris, Dec. 29.—The guillotine, after
two years of euforced idleness, is to resume its grim functions iu Prance.
The vote of the Chamber of Deputies
bus definitely settled thut important
During the period in question the
law of capital punishment has been
in abeyance, Ior the President of tho
Republic, iriespective of public opinion
has commuted every death sentence,
sparing, iu ull, the lives ol almut 105
assassins, lint since tlie hoad ol the
State entered upon his cumpuign of
mercy the number of wilful murders
has Inoreased considerably. .lories
throtightiut the country protested j
again I what they described as the I
misguided clemency of M. Palieres,
while the electors urged tlieir parliamentary representatives into activity.
The parliamentary commission which
was appointed reported in favor of the
maintenance ul the death penalty,and
by itltO vi iters against 201, the Chamber
decided in IftVOr uf the retention of
capital punishment.
So Says Head of Greatest Lumber Company
Chicago, Dec. 2'J.—Edward 1-Iincs,
the newly elected president'oi the
Virginia and Rainy Lake Lumber
company, the largest combine of its
kind in the world, predicts, cheaper
lumber, and a new era in its production, as a result of the new organization.
"It is our intention to cheapen the
coBt of manufacturing, und, of course,
to cheapen the cost to consumers proportionately," says Mr, Hines. "We
will not do this, however, at the expense of tho country hy wrecklesa or
wasteful lumbering methods.
"We will work in harmony with the
forestry departments of the United
States nnd Canada, and we hupe to
make money out of the things that
tb y will ask ub to do. Pur instance,
we Will Utilize all the timber on ihe
grninil we cut over. We wiil noi
"imply pie- out the ub ice 'iei-s,.leaving dead wood a d h.u-h to Iced l i-
est fires, We will clear lands, bo thin
instead of being a worthless wilder-
neSB, after it is cut over, it will he
valuable for farming purposes.,
"We are also hupiug that u further
reduoliun may he made in the eust ol
lumber to Anioric.in consumers by the
tuking off' of the tariff. The greator
part of our land is iu Canada, uud this
would enable us to bring thcCauudiun
lumber iutotb U.S., a thing thut the
turiff practically prohibits now."
At the Revelstoke Opera House

There is no room for doubt that the
concert by the Pulmutier Sisters Or*
chest 1 a and Concert Co. at the Revelstoke Opera House on Monday, Jan.
■Ith, will be the most pretentious
musical event of tbe season. They
are too well known here to need much
introduction, and one can have a
good idea ol the concert and the
ability of the artists by reading tho
following notice from the Edmonton
Bulletin, where tbey recently played a

Luiulier Co., Arrowhead, B. C, was
recently in Vancouver. Mr. Hall is
also interested in a tract ol 13,000

up tbe North Arm of Burrard Inlet,
aud although the question ol erecting
a Kin-mill there has been considered,
no action will he taken at present. In
reference to the limber of the province
Mr. Hall had the following tu say:
' Brltlcb Colombia timber is a sound
inv. 8 merit, lt will never approxi-
in t o anything like Iti real value until
tue government makes tbo lilies moro
secure. It strikes me as peculiar that
in au ft|;e when everybody is talking of
forest conservation the limber laws
sli'iiiil be framed to encourage thn
millmen to log their limits as last as
possiule. Tho right to cut in perpetuity should be granted, and ground

an increase in stiimprtgo tines. Th ■
