A telegram received this afternoon
from George Howe, who is Undertaker John Jerread's assistant, sent to
Wellington last night to make ar-

to Everett, states that from six to
seven days will be required to take
the dead from tlie avalanche.
Three locomotives, a rotary snow
plow, three new electric motors, the
private car of John O'Niell, superintendent, four mail cars nnd two
coaches, one sleeper, one baggage car,

of Wellington.

word from the wreck yet received
was brought by Wentzel. According
to his story, the avalanche came
without warning. Wentzel, who was
at W. R. Baillet's hotel, ran out to
see the billows of snow settling over
the tracks where the trail had stood.
Later he saw men carrying women
and children from the partially buried coaches down in the gulch. He
saw eight men and women carried
out.
The night before the slide a party
of ten men. numbering among them
John S. Rogers, a real estate dealer
of Stil Terrace street. Everett, and A.
Sperber, It. McKnight, Samuel Fie.U
and E. W. Knowles, all of Vancouver,
B.C., had walked into Skykomish
from the stalled train at Wellington.
Until Wentzel's appearance they had
brought the latest news of the passengers at Wellington. At the instigation of Mr. Rogers, who bad feared
the accident, the party of ten .eft

"Sunday I saw a slide come down
to tbe east of the hotel, carrying iTm-
ber with it. I began to fear then for
the safety of all of us, and I scarcely
slept all Sunday night. Sunday night
there was a slide at the east portal
which fllied a 5u-foof gulch across
the track.
"The menace of that great snow
cap was a pall on all our spirits. It
was the most enormous accumulation
ever known in the mountains, according to Mr. Ballets. During all this
time it snowed continuously with
terrific winds driving the drifts. Ccn-
ductor Pettitt, who was in charge ot
our train, proved a hero throughout
those trying days. We all ate at

It is the intention of the promoters
of the company to build a $10,000

building comprising four stores and a

Herring fisheries on the west coast
of Vancouver Island are the latest developments. For years lt has been
known that the herring were very
numerous in some of the sheltered
waters on tlie West Coast but the
same thing obtained In nn.uy other

taking particular notice. The development of Nanaimo herring fisheries
has, however, given an impetus to the

Maestricbt, the capital of the province of Limburg, are flooded, and the
workers living in the vicinity have
been obliged to flee from the rising
waters. Hundreds of houses in
Maestricht are flooded.

THE AMERICAN   LORD.
An American play, well written and
finely acted, is tlie promise held out
by Charles li. Hanford for his engagement al tin- Westminster Opera
House tonight. Fortunately for the
pub.ic, Hanford promises are redeemable at their face value. They never
have to be discounted and "The American Lord" may be relied on to possess not only the charm of splendid
acting such as Mr. Hanford always
offers, but a plot interest that is not
only novel but strictly in touch witli
current thought. The play is not an
untried venture, but was recently
produced with William 11. Crane in
the tide ro.e, with results which left
no doubt of its Merits. A company
of unusual and superior quality has
been assembled for this play and the
production as a whole will rank high,
even in the list of elaborate productions tliis favorite star lias made.
MLs Maiie Drofnah will play the
dashing widow in tlie play and 'or
whose sake the rugged hero of many
vicissitudes of fortune consults to
forgel bis training, restrain his temper and accept the title of nobi.ity
wbicli chance has thrust upon him.

THURSDAY,   MARCH   3,   1910.
"demonstration" at the opera house
last night twenty-five today bear the
brands of red-hot coals and many
others are nursing bruises inflicted
by thoroughly human feet in a panic
that resulted when the floor of the
building gave way. The audience
was just on the point of leaving when
, the members were precipitated, along
; with a red-hot stove, into the basement. The floor had buckled without warning. In their scramble to
escape the crowd trampled out the
burning, coals scattered through the
wreckage, preventing a possible holocaust. No one was dangerously injured.
THE   LUMSDEN   AFFAIR.
The Province takes the opportunity
afforded by a reference to the proceedings before the Ballinger-Pinchot
committee at Washington, to suggest
that it is only in Canada that the dishonesty and irregularities of a government official would be overlooked.
And by way of giving color to Its unfair and unpatriotic suggestion our
contemporary says it cannot hope for
any searching enquiry by the Parliamentary committee at Ottawa into
the charges of over classification on
the eastern section of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, made by Engineer
Lumsden. "who some time ago found
he could not hold his position on that
lime of construction and square what
he saw going on about him with his
conscience."
It suits the Province of course to
continue this line of gross misrepresentation of facts respecting this matter and to calunniate the Liberal government. But there is no grotuid
whatever for suggesting that the enquiry now in progress at Ottawa will
be otherwise than properly conducted,
or that Mr. Lumsden will be in any
way hindered from making any statements that he may consider necessary. Yet these cannot amount to
very much, for Mr. Lumsden has himself explained how and by what
means the expenditure on the Monc-
ton to Winnipeg section of the line
was increased, in a memorandum forwarded by him to the government.
No sensational allegations nor charges against officials or any other persons are contained in this memorandum, and if Mr. Lumsden now wishes
to bring such charges forward he
will also have to "square" this amendment with his written statement officially made on a previous occasion,
as well as with the official report of
the Commissioners as to tlie reasons
for A!r. Lumsdcn's resignation.
As to the Hodgins affair, to which
reference is also made by the Province, the evidence submitted in this
case established beyond question thai
the charges made by Major Hodgins
were absolutely without foundation.
Major Hodgins not only failed to
prove the charges but specifically
withdrew them and unqualifiedly exonerated the Commissioners and their
engineer from any Improper conduct
or undue influence over officials, or
,_f collusion with the contractors.
BELLINGHAM PASTORS FIGHT
SUNDAY BALL AND FUNERALS
��� _-     a__0
COMPANY, Ltd.
Bellingham, March 2.���The Belllngham Ministerial association finds the
tendency toward Sunday funerals
growing at such a pace that united
action may be necessary on the part
of the ministers,    who say that    It
. piaces too great an added burden on
that, the busiest of all days for them.
The association also favors giving a
���half holiday ln each week to the employees of mercantile houses. This
position is taken partly to further
plans for doing away with Sunday
baseball.
Germany Looks for Soldiers.
Fort Worth. Tex., March 2.���Germany apparently is serving notice on
her available citizens in Texas to report for examination to decide if they
are still fit for military duty. At
least 100 German citizens of Fort
Worth who failed to serve their allotted time in the Germain army hare

A   CITY   SPORTS  GROUND.
We are glad that Alderman Welsh
has brought forward so prominuat.y
the needs for the establishment of
a public sports ground for this city,
to which we have so often called attention, and that the proposition Is
meeting with marked attention. A
good ground, conveniently situated,
upon which cricket can be played in
the summer and football In the winter, is very badly required. At the
present there is no place in any way
suitable for either of these popular
and healthful games. A first CiaSB
playing field, well made, with a thoroughly good bottom and a nicely
levelled surface to it, could be established at ;i very moderate figure,
whiist the annual cost of maintenance
would be small.
As We pointed out nearly a year
ago. Moody Bpuare offers an ideal position for a public playground. Us
posi:icu is convenient, and the land
only requires some grading with a
decent dressing shed and store room
erected on it, to make it in every way
acceptable to cricketers and football-
���ers alike.
We believe Alderman Fader, the
late chairman of the Parks committee,
was in favor of the proposed improvement of the Moody Square ground,
but nothing was done towards putting
the idea into practice, and now that
his successor. Alderman Welsh, Is
giving the matter his attention, and
being such an enthusiastic sportsman, effective results are to be expected.

Calgary News: Barney Cohison,
manager of the Calgary Lacrosse club,
has just, returned from a trip to Montreal, Cornwall and other eastern
points. While away, Mr. Collisotn interviewed some of the leading la-
fcrosse players, with a view to getting their services on a Calgary team,
wliich Barney hopes to send after the
Minto cup this summer.
A meeting of the Ciub will be called
about March 1, and the matter will
be thoroughly gone into. An effort
will be made to get the business men
of the town interested in the scheme.
"1 have a good man coming in Alex.
Adams, of Cornwall," said Mr. Colli-
son, "and if I can get the support of
the business men, I can get five or
six more good ones."
Mr. Collison's plan is to get some
of the younger players, who, he
cairns, will stand the pace better
than the old-timers.
"It would be good advertising for
Calgary," said Mr. Co.lison. "Why
look at the advertising Edmonton got
through their Stanley cup team."

MONTREAL  CLUB   WILL
LEAVE   NOTHING TO
CHANCE
JUST ON THE
MARKET
The Montreal Lacrosse dub is In
deadly earnest in its Minto cup quest
and the challengers intend to leave
no stone unturned to insure success
when they tackle New Westminster
in June. President W. E. Findlay of
the Montreal team Is a brother of
James Findlay, the well-known past
president of the Vancouver Athletic
club. In a letter to the Pacific coast
representative of the family the loader of the challengers say that they
will be along this way a week ahead.
They expect, to leave Montreal on
June 4, and will arrive here on June
10 or 11. As the first game is on
June 18 that will give them a whole
week to get into trim after their arrival. They will do their tracing at
Brockton Point.

NANAIMO   CRICKETERS
HAVE  REORGANIZED NOW
Nanaimo, March -������The Nanaimo
Cricket club has reorganized for the
season. Tlie caib was started out
last year after having been out of
existence several years. The difti-
culties of getting grounds and putting
them into shape, and also in rounding a team together prevented the
club from getting into the game with
the other clubs on the coast last year.
Their only two outside dales were
with Burrard and New Westminster,
'both of which they won. This year
I it is tlie aim of the club to get together so that they may get as many
days as possible, and if possible enter the cricket tournament at Victoria. The club will start on a much
better footing than inst year, and as
I it has some promising material to
draw upon, it should give a good account of itself in provincial cricket.

fact that the constitutional soundness
of the Insurance act had been recently called into question in the
Ontario High Court. In view of the
fact that Judge Leet, of Montreal,
had recently given judgment that the
Insurance act was ultra vires, and
that the provinces only had jurisdiction in insurance .egislation. Sir Mackenzie wanted to know if the government 1..,; sent counsel to represent it
at the trial at Toronto, and whether
any steps hud been taken to obtain
an option on tlie question of insurance jurisdiction from the privy
council. Sir Richard Cartwright said
that he would call the attention of
the minister of justice to the matter.

The Most Beautifully
Located Residence Lots
In This City
For $360 Each
Look over the best residential
parts of Vancouver, Seattle or any of
the large Coast cities and you will find
that it is the lots with the^ most commanding outlook that enjoy heaviest
valuation and readiest sale. These
best sections are in most cases far out
but this made no difference when the ���
street cars came���up went the prices
and they're still going up.
The " Capitol Hill"

RIVERVIEW, where I now have
a few choice lots at immediate sale
prices, is going to be the "Capitol

a car line. Within one year���note
this and remember���within one year
from this these Jots will be worth at
the very least, double the above mentioned price.
In All the World
No View Like This
Only the pen of an artist could
could give one an idea of the entrancing outlook from this property. East,
west and south are stretched before
you unobstructed, exposing the Delta,
the river, the gulf, the snow peaks,
the island and the city. But further
description is unnecessary, you really
must come out and see these lots
yourself.
Terms and Particulars
The property fronts on Ottawa, backs on Dundas and extends
east from 20th Street, each lot 50 by 132. The price, $360, to
be paid $100 cash and balance in 6 and 12 months. Corner lots
51 and 52, fronting on 20th Street are $425 each, $150 cash, bal'
ance 6 and 12 months.
