Oct  2.���Ab   the   mm c��t
fire behind the Navesink
Hills, anil the sparkling stars came ont
into the flawless heavens tins evening,
tho  biggest  crowd of  sightseers  and
yatohsmen which ever sniletl  down tn
Sandy Hook to witness the  attempt of
a  foreign   enp hunter   to wrest  from
America theyaehting supremacy of the
world, returned tn New Yoik crestfallen imtl disappointed.   Tho winds from
the wave of ooean had Droved too litrht
nnrl shifty, and  the first of  the International  serifs   of   lSllfl   between the
two greatest racing machines ever produced by England nnd America degenerated into n drifting   mntoh iiml   hart
to  be  declared   off,   because   neither
could reach the finish liuo   iu the time
allotted  hy   the  rales,    To avoid such
winds as occurred today,in which luck
nnd not tbe ciew   ami yacht  win, the
rules provide that if one of the glurlia-
tors does   not finish within five and a
half  honrs the race   is declarer! off, so
at the end of time this afternoon,when
the yachts were still four  miles  from
homo, with the   Shamrock leading   by
one-fourth  of   a   mile, the committee
declared that   there had   been no race.
The yachts were then taken in tow by
their respective tugs and bronght back
to their auchorage inside Bandy Hook.
Tho clean-limbed racers had sailed out
this morning fresh for  battle, but the
sea had refused them a field of conflict.
Under tho niles, the first race is now
postponed for   two days, or till Thurs-
rluy.    Tho  day   promised to bo wet at
tirst;  the  sky   was smeaichetl with a
few dirty clouds, but   clear enough   so
that   the thousands of   spectators who
lined the Jersey shore could see almost
every foot of   the course.    Waves were
crested with white caps here and there
and a fairly   fresh   breeze blew out of
north uoitheast, but  after the American defender, Columbia, aud the challenger, Shamrock, crossed tbe line, the
wind   turned  fluky  and variable, and
the race was a fizzle almost   from   the
start, but   the   fluke   today  gave  the
yachting   sharps   and   the    spectators
much to think about aud some surprises.    The Columbia  is  undeniably the
prettier boat.    She is till   and stately,
With   grncefunl   lines   and    towering
masts. The Irish boat, with her broader beam and longer   base   line, looked
slower   and    heavier.      Perhaps    her
green color makes  her  look  clumsier,
as   if   she   were   forced   through   the
Water, while the slim Columbia pierces it like a rapier.   Though Indeoisive
in eveiy respect as to  tbe  abilities  of
the groat rival single stickers, today's
race Indioate* that tbe Irish boat,with
her English skipper and   Scotch crew.

< t'-hfn 1] v  defended  against tho w 1   I.
During the Bve and a half  hours' sail,
tho     hamrook   was   thrice ahead anil
twice  the   Yankee   boat showed   tbe
���way.
Foi the first ten miles Shamrock led,
then for hve Columbia led, for 46 minutes following the Shamrock, then for
throe hours the Columbia, and for the
last hour ami a half it was the Shamrock that led the way. Tho breeze
blew as high as la knots an hour, and
as low as throe, and shifted also
through six points of the compass.
Eaoh in turn bent tho other running
before the wind and was in turn beat-
on by the other, so that many of tho
experts that saw tho two boatH sail today are disinclined to believe that
there is a pin to choose betweon them,
but, when the ruce is olosely analyzed
it is apparent that the Columbia showed her superiority nt every point of
sailing, running and beating whenever
tho wind freshened, and that if was
only in tho lightest of airs that the
Sliamrook could make headway against
her. Both bail their shares of good
and bad luck ; the Columbia had better

beating the Shamrock two minutes, 48
seconds, while in tbe beat home, after
increasing her lead to over a mile at j
one' time, the Shamrock overhauled
her and was a quarter of a mile ahead
when the allowance expired.
A feature of the race which pleased
every most, was the perfectly clear
field whioh was maintained. For tho
first time, this year the Govenmeut
took a hand to prevent a repetition of
the uufortuuate occurrence which
marred tho previous race, when the accompanying excursion boats, in their
frenzied eagernoss to let nothing of
the beautiful spectacle escape, orowded
down upon the racers until their back
wash impeded their progress through
the water, and caused Lord Dunraven
to file his famous protest. The Government, has determined this year that
the co.urse shall be protected against
unofficial trespassers. A flotiila of
revenue cutters and swift torpdeo boats
flying red barred white flags guarded
the course, keeping excursion steamers,
yachts aud tugs at perfectly safe rtis-
lances from the canvas clouded racers.
On the way down tbe bay they maintained their parallel lines a mile apart
between two lines of fences, through
which not one vessel was allowed to
show its nose. The broad expanse of
the sea was without a wave or swell.
When on the starboard tack, the torpedo boats were in a column on tho
same course, and the revenne cutters
abreast behind the yachts, thus forming a right angle, in the hollow of
Which the yachts sailed without embarrassment. When the yachts changed
their course, each vessel of the patrol
fleet simply altering the direction of
angle uiitl keeping the excursion boat
away. It was only toward the close
when the hope of finishing the race
was given up that the excursion boats
crowded about the ends of the patrol
lines, many of them making straight
for home. The course was laid 16
miles dead before the wind and bank
again. The direction of the wind carried this course smith nrnthe^.t from
Sandy Hook lightship almost straight
down the Jersey const to a point off
Asbury Park, where the white float
with a red ball was placed to mark the
turning point
The   Columbia  was admirably handled throughout   the  race, though the
Shamrock   was  first across tho line by
4.34   seconds,   the     Columbia's   Beer
island crew of Yankees, wearing their
picturesque watch  caps in Iselin's colors were so much   handier  than   their
Scotch rivals, that  they   had   Columbia's spinnaker aud balloon jib set first
by 3 minutes.    The  spectators marvelled at the cloud of canvas the big leviathans carried. The twin balloons with
their following wind lifted the Columbia along ilke a great gull in a 10 knot
breeze ��ud  carried   her   in 10 minutes
past the Shamrock ;but wneu the wind
died to li knots, ns it did within a few
minutes, the Shamrock forged steadily
ahead until at   the end of   35 minutes
she led 200 yards.    The sudden haul of
the wind to NNW. reached the Columbia first.    The   big   bellied  spinnaker
was taken in, her mainsail was partly
jibbed,and bIio passed the Shamrock as
if  the   hitter  bad been moored to the
wharf.    Instead of  a run, tho Columbia gradually edged   over  toward  the
Jersey coast with the intention of getting   the   wind    again   aud   running

some of her claims in the interior and
on the coast, and her frontier will
start  at  Waini River.
The decision was read by M. F. de
Maartens, the umpire, who has presided over the deliberations of the tribunal, and   was as follows:
The undersigned, by these presents,
give and publish their decision determining and judging touohing and oon
cerning the questions that have been
submitted to us by the said arbitration
and in conformity with the said arbitration, we decide, declare, and pronounce definitely that the line of the
frontiers on the colony of British
Guinea and the United States of Venezuela is as follows:
Starting on tbe coast at Point Playa,
the front shall follow straight to tne
confluence of Barium aud Maraima,
thenoa following the valley of the latter to the source of Corentin, otherwise called the Cutari Kiver; thence
it shall proceed to the confluence of
Haiowa and Amaknro, thence in a
southwesterly direction along the
highest ridges of the Imataka Mountains to the highest point of the Imataka chain,opposite the source of Bari-
nui and the principal chain of the
Imataka Mountains; thence iu a southwest direction to the south of Acara-
bisi. From this point the frontier will
follow Thalweg of Cotinga to its confluence with Takutu, thence along
Takutu to its source, thence in a
straight line to the most western point
of the Akarai Mountains, the highest
ridge of which it shall follow to the
sourco of Corentin ; thence it will follow the course of the river.
It is stipulated that tbe frontier
hereby delimited reserves and in no
way prejudices tho questious actually
existing or that may hereafter arise
between Great Britain and the Rep-jh-
lio of Brazil, or between the Republic
of Brazil and Venezuela.
In fixing the above delimitation, the
arbitrators consider and decide that in
time of peace the rivers Amaknru and
Baiima shall be open to navigation by
tbe merchant shipping of all nations,
due re.-pect being made with regard to
equitable regulations and payment of
lighterage dues and other like imposts,
on condition that the dues levied by
Venezuela aud Biitish Guiana on ships
traversing the parts of these riverB
owned by them respectively shall be
imposed iu accordance with the same
tariff on Venezuelaa and British vessels. These tariffs are not to exceed
those of all other eointnes.

tics, Sir Kdmuud Munson, British ambassador to France, tho entire staff of

United States, distinctly refused to
arbitrate any portion of the territory
east of Schomborgk line, alleging that
ts title was unassailable. The award,

London, Oct. 8.��� Mr. Montague
White, Consul General for the South
Afrioan Republic in London, told the
Associated Press this morning that he
telegraphed President Kruger yesterday, urging him to make a personal
appeal to Lord Salisbury, dwelling
upon the iniquity of war and proposing a scheme as a basis of further
negotiations. He said he was momentarily expecting to hear that the Transvaal Government was sanding an ultimatum regarding the despatch of
troops n*% casus belli. In this event
he would be compelled to closo his
oflioes.
Mr White added a curious statement
to the effect that a representative of
the largest capitalists of the Rand has
called upon him this morning and asserted that it was known in capitalist
oiroles tnat Lord Salisbury bad determined that there Bhould not be war,
and had Instructed Secretary Chamber-

the members, described the war as unjust and unnecessary, and denied that
the Uitlanders wanted the franchise.
Mr.Ducas Meyer, the chairmaj, said
the real purpose of the British was
"solely to gain Nabots vineyard."
The Transvaal reply, it is now reported, is now ready for despatch, and
only awaits the receipt of the British

says: "I understand that the landing

DELIBERATION WAS BEST.
Now that war with the South African Republic is inevitable, if not actually begun, there may he not a few
who will share the impatience of The
Morning Post, which complains that,
though the Government put their
hands to the plough last July, there
was no visible progress with the advent of October. But let us not become
unreasonable. Even today there arethose
who declare that the Government have
travelled too fast and gone too far. It
iB impossible to please all. Mr. Chamberlain baB had to consider what was
best for the Empire and for civilisation, as it appealed to the judgment
and conscience of himself and his colleagues, who are charged with the responsibility of protecting the interests
of both. He has known that war witli
the Transvaal would mean much more
than the mere oorrection of abuses, of
which tbe Uitlanders have been complaining for several years past. It
meant that its conclusion would mark
a complete alteration of the map of
South Africa. He and his colleagues
have had a better knowledge of the situation than was possible for the general public. They have known, only
as those behind the scenes can know,
what influences have been at work to
undermine British authority in that
part of the world. It was open to them
to come down witb a heavy hand to
check them, but before proceeding to
extremities it was h ur duty to try all
the arts of diplomacy to ward off the
crisis.
This bus been their employment
since July. At no time since, until
quite recently, has it been possible to
say with truth that some adjustment of
differences short of war was not within
reach. And as long as the chance of
an amicable settlement presented itself
Her Majesty's Ministers were bound
not to ignore it. It may seem a small
affair to go to war with a nation that
cannot place in the field more than
thirty or forty thousand effective soldiers But any war is a serious matter, not to bo entered upon lightly. It
was wise and in every sense right to
move with deliberation. They put
their hands to the plough in July, it
iB true,and at that time they had fully
made up tneir minds what was tbe
loast they would accept in satisfaction
of tbd demands of the situation. To
that they have steadfastly adhered,
believing it just, undor all the circumstances ; but they should not have been
expected to act as if they had anticipated disappointment. That wonld
have put them in the wrong, whereas
now their patience and moderation
compel tbe nations to acknowledge
that responsibility for the shedding of
blood rests, not with them, but with
the Boer leaders.
It is not improbable, basides, that
we shall soon discover there were
weightier considerations behind than
those which were presented on the surface. It has not been a mere Uitland-
er, or even Transvaal, matter. There
is a suspicion that for months, if not
years, there has been a conspiracy to
destroy British supremacy in South
Africa and to redeem it for the Boers.
Color of a decided complexion is given
to this by the haste with which the
Orange Free State has thrown in its
fortunes with the Transvaal. Our dispatches indicate that the lead in precipitating hostilities is being taken by
the sister Republic, which cannot be
allowed to have any concern with the
ostensible cause of the troubles. Great
Britain's right of suzerainty, aud her
obligation to see that the Uitlanders
were acoorded a reasonable measure of
Justine, wero not matters with whioh
the Orange Free State was supposed to
meddle, yet we seo it as active in pre-
p iring for war as the Transvaal.
Great Britain is confronted with the
tnsk of clearing South Africa of the
Boers, and making the British flag
supreme in every portion of it. That
is what this war means, and before
entering upon it Her Majesty's Ministers did right to oount the cost.
The Bulletin labors with a heroism
worthy of a noblor cause to save the
Edmonton route to the Klondike from
the disgrace that kills. It is past help,
however; nothing can ever restore it
to the public confidence. We oan admire the loyalty of The"*2iW!?tV&f
whioh   was  no doubt perfectly sinoere
when first recommending it, and it is
probably right in saying that miseries
and disasters tiro attributed to it which
honest investigation could trace to
other routes or bring home to other
causes. There is no occasion, however,
for the heaping of Inn-tor upon horror,
in the further effort to discredit it,
and in resenting this practice, whioh
has a smack of the malicious about it,
The Bulletin has our sympathy.
MUSIC    HALL.
Editor Miner���In reading over an
article in Sunday's Miner I noticed
where some one who calls himself
Hetiry. anil who takes so strong a stand
agninst onr having a musio hall in
Nelson. Now, Henry, I would advise
you to go aronntl the City at nights.
Go to the various burs and gambling
dens and see the young men cf our
City wasting their lives in drinking
nnd betting their last dollar on some
slot machine. Now, I have been
pretty well over tho west, and 1 will
give you one instance in particular.
That is Rossland ; there are two music
halls there, one, the Pacific, where
they were running shows that were
not tit for o young man to go to, aud
I will give them oredit, the house is
now closed on account of small houses.
The other is tho International. That
is paoked every night. The shows are
decent, and unless anybody is very evil
minded, I do not think they conld
take any harm therefrom. I know that
I made it a practice tiering my stay
there, which was some five months, of
going twice a week,and I know that, it
has never lowered my morals any, that
I know of. You call it a den of iniquity. Have yon had any experience
in that way. If you have, of course
you are supposed to have your say. I
think myself that a gymnasium would
be a great thing for Nelson, but you
must take into consideration the fact
that a man who is working every day
does not feel like going to a place of
that kind. H9 is looking for a place of
amusement, and also a place where
they may forget the many cares of the
past day. I think instead of a musio
hall being n disgrace it would be a
paying institution, as well as a credit
to the City. Now, sir, I think if you
will take time to consider the matter
yon will find that you are at loast a
little too hard on tho^e who have to
make their living that way.

THE 'PHONE POLES
WILL   STILL    REMAIN    ON    THE
FBONT STREET.
Improvements to be Inaugurated in the
Telephone System.���Subscribers
Rolling in.
The Kooteuuy Lake Telephone Con-
puny hns won its point with the City,
una their now poles will he erected on
Baker street. The Mayor, Alderman
Fletcher, the City Engineer and Mr.
O. 0. Hodge, district superintendent
of the Telephone Company, had a conference yesterday afternoon, during
whioh it beonme apparent that it
would be veiy Inadvisable to place the
poles in the alleyway, as bad been
originally suggested. Apart from the
inoonvenienoe it would cause, tho tele-
phono company it would block up
the alleyway, The alleyways in Nelson are about 16 feet wide, and the
new poles will bear amis 12 feet in
length, which means that the polos
would have to bo set practically in the
middle of the alloy. Thore is a good
deal of traffic on the alleyway between
Baker aud Victoria streets, and such a
blocking of the way could not he tolerated.
The new poles will be 52 feet in
height, two feet thick nt tho bottom,
nnd about 9 inches at tho top, and will
be pheed 18 feet six inches from the
building line. Tho telephone poles are
on the south side of Baker street and
the oleotrio light poles on the north
side,and arrangements have been marie
whereby the street railway will string
their wires on these poles so there will
be no increase in the number of poles
now on the street. On the north side
of Baker street the City will supply
the new poles and the tramway company will put them up, where the present poles are unsuitable or in the
wrong position, nnd the old ones will
be used in the outlying parts of tho
Oity.
This putting up of new poles is only
a part of a thorough reorganisation of
the telephone system here, which the
company is about to carry on at a cost
of several thousands of dollars. A new
metallic system is to be put in, which
will entail the cbnnging of every telephone wire iu town, nn operation
which will occupy two or three
months. When this is completed the
switchboard now in use nt Vancouver
will be transferred here, and the company will be in a position to do a still
larger business. There are now 150
subscribers on the telephone list. Three
years ago there were only 85. The
long distanoe phones are lining introduced all over town, and give great
satisfaction, as dons tho all-night service inaugurated this week. In case
of a fire in outlying parts of tbe town
such a service might prove of inestimable benefit.
Mrs. McLaughlin   is showing a fine
line of children's bats and caps.
NELSON COKE AND GAS WORKS.
The Drawings For An Up-to-Datc-
Plant nre Completed.
Tho excavation for the buildings to
contain tbe coke and gas works bus
been completed, aud the plans for tbe
superstructure have been drawn hy
Mr. David Morris, tbe gas company's
engineer. The building will be a
substantial one, built entirely of stone,
and its proposed dimensions are 1115
feet long by 49 feet wide and 20 feet
high. All the works will be on the
ground floor, and include n retort
house, scrubber and condensing rooms,
engine house and boilers, purifying
shed, repair shop, general office and
private offioe. Abovo the works, and
connected by the railway by a spur,
are the bunkers of a capacity of 2,000
tons. It will take 20 cars to transport
the plant and machinery, whioh will
arrive in Nelson as soon as the buildings are ready for its reception. The
last consignment of pipe���7 onrs in
all���to be laid this year, is expected in
Nelson tomorrow, nnd when this pipe
is laid the building of the works will
begin, for the construction of which
a contract will probably be let.
AT THE OPERA HOUSE.
Tbe  Black  Flag  Proved a Suocesa in
Everv Respect.
Tho large audience which greotod
the French Theater Company Inst
night to witness tho "Blaok Flag,"
was unanimous in pronouncing the
play to have been exooptionally well
rendered, It was so well received by
every one, and everyone in the cast
enacted the part assigned to them so
'.veil, that n critic hardly knows whore
to commence praising, or where to
leave off.
Mr. Walter Brooks, a "Sheeney"
crook from London, won tho uproarious applauso of the house every time
bis grand larceny physiognomy was
seen on the stngo. His apoplectic fit
was something unique. His acting was
so realistio that he carried the nudi-
ence with him and they felt half sorry, although a villinn, to see him sentenced to pennl servitude.
A climax of the play was reaohed
when Ouidn Marion, as Naomie Bland-
ford, discovers through nn inadvertent
admission of Jack Glyndou that be is
the real criminal, nnd denounces him.
Ned, the cabin uoy, played by Mamie Holden, had the sympathy of the
audience from the, first. The simple,
honett faith and gratitude which filler!
Nod's little heart touched an answering chord in tbe heart of every person
present, and -ound after round of applause was accorded little Ned.
The natural, manly attitude of Harry Glyndou, the character assumed hy
R E. French, placed him in touoh
with the bouse at once, and his brave,
though bluff character and rough and
ready honesty through all his troubles
until his final vindication was attained, was most thoroughly appreciated.
Mr. French has a strong company
with him, and a Nelson audience appreciates their ability.
Tho play for tonight is entitled
"Wanted, A Wife," preceded by tho
curtain raiser "Dropping a Hint."
"Wanted, A Wife" is said to be ono of
the strongest of modern plays.

KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS DAY.
It has been suggested by at least
fifty people yesterday that during the
stay of the French Theatre troupe in
this City that tbe play of Damou and
Pythias, which that company have in
their repertoire.be presented in Nelson,
at d that a speciol Knights of Pythias
day be had. The idea which seemed
to strike so many nt once became suddenly popular, and ns a result the
Knights b ire are making arrangements
with Mr. French to prejent the play
upon which lays tbe foundation of the
order. Excursions will, if tbe play is
produced, be run from Ymir, Kaslo,
Sandon, New Denver and Slocan City.
It has been long since many of the
Knights have seen the play, and many
here have never seen it. Many others
besides members of tho order will be
v.ry glad to see a play from which,
through the nobleness aud grandness
of the story such a wonderful order as
the Knights of Pythias has sprung,
Surely Damon and Pythias should be
presented.

Exclaimed nn apparently refined lady as she entered our store

place to deal. I am not at all acquainted with tbe Western

would receive honest treatment. This is M. DesBrisay's isn't
it? The clerk informed her that it was. Then she proceeded,
���5 lbs. ten, 3 lbs. Coffee, 1 box Paterson's Oream Hoda Biscuits, etc., etc , too numerous to mention.
This goes to show that our reputation stands high, the quality of our goods equally high. While our prices are very low

Work on the Last Clmuce mine, on
Toad Mountain, owned '.by the Nelson
Copper Fields. Limited, has been resumed under the superintendence of
Mr. R. C. Camcbell-.Tohnston, M. E.,
consulting engineer for the company.
A gang of men is now at work running a crosscut tunnel to tap the veiu
at u depth of l.'iO feet, and it is expected that tlie oru body will bo encountered after driving another 50 feet, when
a drift both ways on the vein will be
run. It is the intention then to sink
on the vein, and a hoisting plant will
be installed. Work on the propeity will
be vigorously prosecuted all the winter, and a sleigh road to Hall Siding
will be built. Tbe ore on the property
is gold-copper, and throe new veins
have recently been opened up, besides
the one on which is the development
work referred to above. The Last
Chance gives every indication of being
a big producer in the near future.

Fort Steele, Oct. 2.���(Special Cor-
lespondeuce Daily Miner.)���Tbe matter in dispute between the Mackintosh
syndicate and Collett, Starbird and
Roberson, over the 15,000 paid on
the bond of the Red Line mineral
claim, bus been settled. The Mackintosh people are to release any and all
interest they may have in the propertv
and the $5,000 paid will be returned to
them by Messrs. Collett, Starbird &
Roberson.
Several mining deals of importance
were consummated last week. Thomas
O. Holt, of Vancouver, took a bond on
the claims of George Urquhart for
$yo,000. The^e claims are on the St
Mary's River, about five miles from
Sawyer's Pass. D. W. Moore, of Trail,
has a bond on the Enterprise claim, in
the same locality, for $20,000. The Try
Again claim, on Four Mile Creek, ten
miles from Fort Steele, was bonded
for $15,000 to West Kootenay parties
This claim is showing np well in tbe
face of the tunnel, now in 35 feet.
There is twenty inches of copper
pyrite.
The Dnpont group of mines on Boulder Creek is developing into a gold
property of considerable importance.
An average of six assays recently made
gave a value of $93.H'A in gold per ton.
The highest assay was $400, the lowest
|9.
Work on the Cbickamon Stem is still
being pushed,aud in another six weeks
it is expected that shipments can be
made continuously. On the Estella
there is about 30 tons of concentrating
ore on the dumps and probably 500
tons of concentrating ore iu sight.
in many of the smaller villages. The
disturbance has not yet subsided, although its strength appears to be spent.
The shocks coutiune almost daily, but
with no great violence. The population is encamped in the open.
One consequence of the earthquake
is the subsidence of the level of tbe
Aideti district by two yards. Sulphurous springs burst out in the valley of
Noander and tbe country between
Aiden and Oenizli became full of
orevasses out of which rushed black,
muddy water, with sufficient volume
to wash away n flock' of 1000 sheep.

held. Time after time the Shamrock
tried for tho weather guage, luffing,
squeeziug aud pinching until hor head
sails trembled, but without avail. Tbe
Columbia not only held ahead, but
gained foot after foot. The yachts were
beautiful spectacles as they beat to
windward, the water sliding swiftly
back from their shark-like hi.ws.
After the Colombia had gotten a mile
abend and the yachts were nw&j over
under tbe Jersey shove, tbe breeze
again paled and the Shamrock drew
gradually away. Aft'T Ilia' the Shamrock was never headed, hut fro .. that
time to the finish the Columbia had
nothing but bad Inok.
New York, Oot, 8, ���Betting on tho
Sha'iirock Columbia race was quite
brisk on the Stock Kxch mge today,
although ��agcrs were for the most
part small. Odds favored the cup de
fender, the ruling price being ten to

EARTHQUAKE IN ASIA MINOR.
Fuller Particulars Show Terrible Loss
of Life.
Constantinople, Oct. 8.���It is now
estimated that 1,500 persons perished
in the eurthquako in Asia Minor,
Btouud Aiden. The first shock occur
red at 4 o'clock in the morning of September 20, and lasted 40 seconds. The
effects very npppalling. Whole villages
were completely destroyed. Tne earthquake was felt as far as Scio, Mitylene
and Smyrna. The latest advices from
tho stricken area show that men,
women and children were buried in
the ruins of their dwellings before they
realized their danger. Numbers of
bodies still lie beneath the debris,
About 500 persons were killed at Saka-
reni, and some 500 nt Denial!, where
three-fourths of tho buildings fell.
There was a proportionate loss of  life
