believed the emtombed men must surely be burned to
death.   All of the miners are foreigners.
A number of miners were killed near the mouth of the
mine trying to escape.
The officials of the mine refuse to discuss the situation
and the actual number of men entombed is difficult to
ascertain.

The mine is owned by Dr. D. B. Hailey, of McAlester,
and is one of the largest mining properties in the state.
Soon after the fate of the entombed men became
generally known crowds of wildly excited women and
children, relatives of the unfortunate men, appeared at
the mouth of the shaft. Their grief was pitiable and
their fruitless cries for the entombed miners added much
to the confusion.
. The officials of the company aided by the mine bosses
jand others immediately set to work to rescue the men
si ill in the mine. It was soon apparent, however, that no
one could enter the mine as volumes of smoke began to
pour from the openings. The catching on fire of a barrel
of oil started the conflagragation.
Fire Under Control.
Muskogee, Okla., Aug. 26.���A telephone missagefrom
Haileyville this afternoon says the fire in the Hailey-Ola
mine has been placed under control. A rescue party
tried to enter the mine late this afternoon, but so far has
been unsuccessful.

King owns them.
That   the  King left  Goodwood  last

Particularly galling to the King has
been the defeat of some of his horses

against him by Robert Seivier, editor
of the Winning Post, it is reported
the King said angrily:
"The turf could sret along well

Spares Will Play.
The Westminsters will walk out on
the field minus "Punk" Wlntemute
and Billy Turnbull. The former is
not ln shape, and has not been turning out to practice recently on this
account. Billy Turnbull is far from
well, and is not likely to handle a
stick again in a schedule game this
season. Their places on the team wlll
he filled by Pete Latham and
"Doughey" Spring, both of whom have

Spring is still suffering from a cut received in last Saturday's game against
the Victoria intermediates, but will be
in good condition by the end of the
week.
Vancouvers Not Practicing.

Reports from Vancouver tend to show

CLAYTON'S RESIDENCE
DESTROYED BY EIRE
House at Burnaby Burned to
the Ground in Short Time
Damage About $3000.
George. E. Clayton's residence at
Deer Lake, Burnaby, was totally destroyed by lire yesterday afternoon,
the house being reduced to a smouldering heap less than an hour after the
flames had first been noticed. ,
The tire is supposed to have
started in a wing which was only
Kirty built, and in which Mr. Clayton
was working at the time. Owing to
the difficulty in fighting the flames,
there being no large supply of water
immediately at hand, the flre made
rapid progress and was soon beyond
control.
Besides the house. considerable
furniture was destroyed. The total
loss is estimated at fllbout $3000, the
house being worth in the neighborhood of $2000. There was some insurance on the place.
Big Fire in Toronto.
Toronto, Aug. 2G. -Half of the Union Stockyards
in West Toronto was wiped out by fire tonight. Loss,
$150,000. Seven houses on Keel Street were also
destroyed.   The origin of the fire is not known.

"Thirty feet ta the gu'f"
BIRDS OF A FEATHER.
Editorlaly In Tuesday evening's issue the Columbian calls attention to
the scurrilous article which appeared
In tbe Province of Monday and In
evideut glee said it seemed to indicate
a shocking state of affairs and adds:
"Fancy the risk to which the country
would be subjected ii the affairs of
the Dominion were left In control of
men who put up jobs of this kind In
connection with the management of
their own party." This is practically
an acceptance and endorsation of the
contents of the article.    Its style and
untruthfulness no doubl was a Bweel
morsel for the Columbian, In that tit
last It had discovered x British Columbia journal that could nearly equal
'itself In virile abuse. One would have
thought that when the journal of another city ran the gamut in calling
some of our host citizens "thugs" and
"thlmblerlggers" that the Columbian
would have resented It
Has the Columbian ever found any
of the gentlemen who were delegates
from this city to the Liberal convention to be thugs ? lias not the Columbian had the experience, in common with all our citizens, that these
gentlemen are above reproach in the,
business and social circles of the
city " Then why not defend them
against a journalistic libertine who
happens to be in the employ of a
great corporation for the purpose of
aiding Its interests as against the
Commonwealth. Putting aside all
party differences both Conservative
and Liberal papers should be ready to
uphold the honor aad Integrity of
those who have helped to bring our
city  Into  Its  pre.en'    position,    men
who stood by the city in the dark days
when less staunch supporters ran
away to our sister city on the inle.t.
As Conservatives and Liberal:; we
may be divided hy party cleavage and
may not see eye to eye on political
questions, but we can at least give
each other credit for being honest in
our convictions and in the carrying
out of those convictions and when assailed from outside we should stand
shoulder to shoulder in defence of
each other and not take the course of
the Columbian and call attention to
the offence and endorse its contents.
"Thirty feet to tne gulf."
POWDER MAY BE MAD.
TO ARTICULATE SOUND!
Explosive Is Made Sensitive to Sound
in    the   Manner   of   a    Phonographic Record.
Paris, Aug, 20.���Powder that speaks
when it explodes is the latest wonder
attributed to (Trench inventors. Details of its composition *ind manufacture are. wanting, but it is declared
that the wonderful powder invented by
Professors Georges and Gustavs Lou-
det can lie made to repeat Inarticulate
sounds instead of making a deafening
report, Presumably the powder is
made sensitive to sound in the manner of a  phonographic record.
Various utilities are suggested for
speaking powder. On patriotic occasions powder may be made to shout
"Vice la Republlque!" or If exported
to Canada may be used during the
election campaign to shout "Hurrah"
for any given candidate. Signal cartridges on railroads could be made to
shout "Danger!" but until the alleged
vocal attainments of this powder are
demonstrated, practical scientists are
incredulous.
Increasing  Milling Industry.
Moose Jaw, Aug. 26.���All this week
a gang of 10n men have been at work
on the Prague Milling company's new
flour mill and elevator here.   The old
building was raised one storey and the
structure made flush with the elevator
the interior space being doubled. The,
new elevator has capacity for 100.000 j
bushels; while the old one is fitted up J
to hold  65,000 bushels.    A warehouse
will also be built beside the mill. When
completed 35 men will be required to ,
operate. I

GAS TO DESTROY BURGLARS.
German    Firm   Invents   New   Method
Of Protecting Valuables.
Stuttgart, May 26.-���A chemical firm
tn the small town of Aalen has perfected and patented an invention that
threatons burglars with instant death
after they succeed in opening a safe
vault door, either by skeleton key or
with the aid of compressed air, nitroglycerine, and other burglars' paraphernalia.
The moment an outsider opens the
door, or bores through it, poisonous
gases are released, destroying the invader and leaving him dead on the
floor.

Wilson Bros, and O. N. Reister have
made what appears to be a strike of
real importance at a point about flve
miles northwest of the telegraph trail
near McGuiness' ranch, says the current Issue of the Bulkley Poineer. They
were on their way to Babine lake, but
finding the country very hard to get
through, made their way back io the
trail tor an attempt at another point.
The large ore samples brought down
look exceptionally good for surface
rock. They consist of chalcopyrlte
and pyrrhrOtlte, also tetrahedrite, The
discoverers state that, the ore lies under a capping of hematite and specular iron and that they have traced one

surviving resident in the person of
Mr. David Stirton, for many years a
member of parliament, and from 1S76
to 1904 postmaster of Guelph, passed
away at an early hour yesterday
morning, after being in failing health
for ten or twelve years.
The deceased was born in the year
1816 in Brechin, Scotland, and when
a hoy went with his father and others
to Venezuela. They did not stay there
long, but took ship to New York in
1827, where through instructions from
John Gait, the founder of Guelph, they
were sent, there, arriving after a tedious journey, four months after the
first tree had been cut for Guelph.
Mr. Stirton was then eleven years of
age.

CHEESE INDUSTRY.
Reasons   Why   Market   n   England   Is
Far From Good.
Ottawa, Aug. 25.���So far this season Canadian cheese has been neglected in the North of England, reports Mr. P. B. McNumara, Commissioner at Manchester to the Department of Trade and Commerce. This,
he says, is due to the fact that domestic cheese is cheaper than the
Canadian. He adds: "The retail and
wholesale trade has an impression
that cheese prices are being held up
by forces that they cannot control,
and are content to leave It severely
alone, or at any rate deal with only
compulsory quantities."

will visit a number of aristocratic
families in their chateaux. All precautions are taken to make the Crown
Prince produce a good impression.

looking for an American heiress as
his wife.       ,
