Earthquakes and Fires Caused  Wide-spread   Desolation.   .,  THOUSANDS OF LIVES CRUSHED OUT.  hundreds of Millions Worth of Property was Destroyed.  People   are   Starving1 -- Argentine  Cities Send Relief Trains to  Distressed Nation ~ Valencia  Victims Found���Ontario Town  Fire Swept ~ British Medical  Association in Session���Found  ���'   Diamonds in Manitoba.  [SI'HCIAI, TO THE  CIjAIMJ  New York, Aug. 24.���A cable of  yesterday from Lima, Peru, says:  ��� "The city of Valparaiso, Chile, was  aLnost annihilated by the recent  earthquake and fires continue to  ��� ravage the place. ��� Many tragic  scenes are being enacted during the  fight against the fires and the lack  of water and fire fighting apparatus  is greatly hampering the workers.  Numerous instances, of robbery and  pillage bave.been reported.'*.  A Valparaiso despatch of the'iSth  to. -New York said: Earthquakes  beginning Wednesday evening at 8'  o'clock and continuing all week  have devastated Chile. The first  two shocks completely destroyed  the business section of Valparaiso.  Whole rows of buildings were  thrown to the ground and hundreds  of people were -killed. Hundreds  more were buried in the debris aud  burned to death before they could  be rescued. . Santiago, the capital  of Chile, has not been heard from  since the first shock three days ago.  .It is feared that the inland capital  city has. met a worse fate than has  Valparaiso-. Fires are still burning  in the residential districts of this city,  which are already badly damaged.  Tlie people are panic stricken and  fleeing for ' their lives but do not  know Which way to turn, to avoid  calamity. The' conditions and  scenes which prevailed at San Francisco last April, and which shocked  the world, are being re-enacted in  this, the Pacific metropolis of South  America. The telegraph lines are  down In all directions and word can  be received from no place outside of  Valparaiso. It is believed that the  conditions in many other cities and  towns are as bad as they are here.  Many landslides have occurred at  ^Valparaiso and in the nearby mountains and many people are known  to have been killed and buried  thereby. No trains have been operating on any of the roads running  into Valparaiso since the earthquake  of Wednesday. Tunnels in the vicinity of the city have caved iu and  the rails have been twisted so as to  make them useless.  A Valparaiso despatch of the 22nd  says  The actual loss of life in this  city as the result of the recent earthquakes will beyond question exceed  3,000, aud the loss in other cities  hits been as great or greater in proportion. Sixty per cent of all the  property has been wiped out and  the loss'in this city alone will reach  $250,000,000. Santiago, the Chilian  capital; is almost completely in ruins.  Valparaiso and Santiago are absolutely unihabitable and it is thought  to be impossible to remove thedebris.  Viadoga del Mar, Peterca, Herro-  viejo, Lliallia, Santo Roca.Los Andes, Melon, Zoupallar, Nogales and  numerous other tbvvns and cities  throughout Chile were also almost  completely or totally wrecked and  devastation has been spread over the  country. From "all districts come  reports of tremendous loss of life.  Iu most places the people are on the  verge of starvation. All the cities in  South America which are close to  Chile are rushing relief trains to the  outskirts'of Santiago and are affording' all , the. relief,-possible. The  scenes of distress at all points are  awful-and beyond description.  Victoria, B. C, Aug. 23.���Mr.  Daykiir, keeper of the lighthouse at  Carmanah Point, reports the finding  of the,missing lifeboat of the steamer Valencia, which was wrecked on  the coast of Vancouver Jsland last  February. The boat contained eight  skeletons but identification was impossible.  Haileybury, Out., Aug. 23.���A  fire which wiped out this town yesterday was -undoubtedly the incendiary work "of drunken revellers.  The loss amounts to $150,000.  Owen Sound, Out., Aug. 23.���  Fred Campbell, of Strathroy, Ont.,  cut his throat in this city yesterday  morning. He left a letter which  gives a full explanation of his reasons for taking his own life, but the  authorities at present refuse to divulge its contents.  Toronto, Aug. 23.���The 74th annual meeting of the British Medical  Association opened in University  Convocation Hall in this city yesterday morning with ��,100 delegates  present, and who, represented almost  every part, of the British Empire.  During the afternoon and evening  sessions several papers were read on  tuberculosis, and the conclusion  reached was that tuberculosis is  largely the production of conditions  and that what would prevent would  also cure it. !  Bellinghaui, Wash., Aug. 23.���  Forest fires are raging in the district  to the east of this city and much  valuable timber and property has  already been destroyed. "A change  of wind last night saved the town of  Alger from destruction. Numbers  of men are working hard in an endeavor to get the fires under control.  Philadelphia, Aug. 23.���A new  world's automobile record was established here yesterday. 13. R.  Kelly drove his car fifty miles in  one hour, three minutes and'1924  seconds.  Toronto, Aug. 23.-~Chas. Wilson, a prominent physician of Montreal, and who was attending the  convention of the British Medical  Association here, was yesterday sentenced to a week in jail without the  option of a fine.    He  was  arrested  while intoxicated at the King Kd-  ward hotel, where he had approached a group of lady tourists and seizing one of tlieir'number, a Miss  Severance,"forcibly kissed her.- The  doctor pleaded hard for the privilege  pjfa fine, hut the magistrate declined  his plea and awarded the above  sentence.  Quebec, Aug. 23.���I-I. M. S. Dominion, which is lying at this port,  was a scene of gaiety yesterday  afternoon and evening when her  commander, Capt. Kingsmill,- entertained Governor General Earl Grey,  Premier Sir Wilfrid -Laurier, Lieut.  Governor Jette, of Quebec, and the  French, admiral and captains of the  two cruisers of the French navy  which are paying visits of courtesy  in Canadian waters.  Vancouver, B. C ,��� Aug. 24.���Influential Chinese, have purchased a  controlling interest in a leading  British Columbia newspaper for the  purpose of waging a campaign in  favor of the abolition of the Chinese  head tax. The same people'will  also control, for the same purpose,  newspapers in Montreal, Ottawa,  Toronto, Winnipeg and Quebec.  Moscow, Aug. 24.���One hundred  and ��� fifty political prisoners, who  have been sentenced to exile by an  administrative order, started for  Siberia yesterday.  Desplaga, "Russia, Aug. 24.--Au  agitator aud four soldiers were executed here yesterday tor having  been ringleaders in the recent mutiny iii:this district. -.  -.Winnipeg, Aug. 24.���Professor  Reuben Andre arrived in this city  yesterday and exhibited a handful  of rough uncut diamonds which he  claims he' discovered in Manitoba.  Local jewellers affirm that the diamonds are of the finest quality.  Vancouver, Aug. 24.���The C. P.  R. steamer Princess May sailed last  night for Skagway with 300 tons of  freight and a good passenger list.  GENERAL  NEWS.  A railway tunnel near Bristol,  Va., caved in on Aug. 17th and imprisoned 50 workmen. Conditions  were thought to be favorable for the  ultimate  rescue  of those entombed.  Late telegraphic despatches state  that ihe seismic disturbances whicli  wrecked Valparaiso and other cities  and towns in Chile last week were  also felt in some parts of the Argentine republic, in New York and Albany, at Honolulu, and at the Isle  of Weight.  A late San Francisco despatch  said: The insurance companies are  settling the losses incident to the  earthquake and fire of last April.  Money is pouring into the city at  the rate of $1,000,000 a day. The  banks of the city have a greater  amount of cash on deposit now than  they have ever had before in their  history.  . A Greenwood, 3. C, despatch of  the tSth said: Bob Davis, a negro,  assaulted a white girl named Jennie  Brooks last Monday. H was taken  from the jail yesterday and riddled  with bullets. When it became apparent that the mob was bent upon  lynching the black demon, Gov.  Hey ward addressed the crowd and  admonished all present to let the  law take its course. He spoke  strongly for law and order. The  mob cheered the sentiments of the  governor to the echo and it was  thought he had carried his way,  but when he quit talking they took  the negro out of the governor's sight  and killed him.  Mining Notes.  The shortage of water on Boulder  creek is hampering the individual  miners to a considerable' extent.  Gold Commissioner J. A. .Fraser  left Tuesday on a trip of inspection  to the Rainy Hollow section of the  Atlin district, and where consider-,  able quartz mining has been carried  on during the past two or three  seasons.  ' Mr. Denny, one of the principal  owners of the Spruce Creek Power  Co., and who for the past few  months has been watching the operations of his company under the able  management of Mr. W. Hall, left  for Seattle this week. ,  Mr. A. E. Woods, manager of the  V. W. & ,Y. railway at Vancouver,  aud who is also president of the  Northern Mines Ltd., arrived in  camp yesterday to inspect the steam  shovel operations on Spruce creek  by the latter company.  The Societie Miniere de la C. B.  are piping as hard A possible but  the water' in Boulder is so low that  it is impossible to handle very much  gravel. However, the company is  doing , as well as can be expected  under the circumstances.  The Pine Creek Power Co., Ltd.,  J. -!I�� Ruffner manager, had another  very successful clean-up on Sunday  last. This company has lately been  busy extending their flumes, etc.,  aud are now piping again in both  pits. They are also ready to fire  three big shots in their powder  drifts.  Messrs. R. H. McCreary and C. D.  Jamieson, milling experts who have  lately been examining several quartz  properties throughout the Atlin district, left for the outside on Tuesday's boat. We understand that  Mr. McCreary, before leaving the  camp, secured options on some promising claims.  Mr. E..Brown, of Skagway, and.  who is interested in the Engineer  group of quartz claims on Taku  Arm, accompanied by a quartz and  placer expert, has lately had a small  force of men at work on the Engineer group, from which property a  sample shipment has been made to  an outside smelter so as to ascertain  the values carried. We have it on  good authority that if" this triahship-  meut gives satisfactory returns a  force of over thirty men'will immediately be employed to further  develop the. property.'';'  We note in thc Victoria Week of  the 4th inst. a long editorial on thc  report of the lion.-Fred Peters, K.  C, who was Royal Commissioner in  the recent "Pcndray" investigation  at the city. The Week scores the  commissioner very hard and drops  some pretty strong remarks as to  his uncalled for and unnecessary remarks on some of the evidence, and  says that Mr. Peters is not exempt  from "the last infirmity of noble  minds," but felt called upon to  tread in the footsteps of many illustrious predecessors for his conclusions, and "inter-alia" wandering  over a field which had little or nothing to do with the case.
