Sudbury, Ont., Sept.- 13.���A bad  head-on collision ��� occurred on the  Canadian Pacific Railway seven  miles west of this place early this  morning between a 'transcontinental'  passenger train and a homesteaders'"  excursion train. The latest information received concerning, the caus-  uality list states that eleven persons"  were killed instantly aud twenty-  five others were more or less seriously injured. The homesteaders  were mostly from the vicinity of  Torouito aud it is believed that the  majority oft those kilted or injured  are from their numbers. It is not  as yet.kno.wu who was responsible  for the accident.  Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 13.���His  Excellency Earl Grey, Governor  General of Canada, and party arrived bene' last night and were escorted to the Vancouver hotel by a  guard of honor from the Sixth regiment. The party left today on the  steamer Princess Victoria for the  British Columbia capital aud will  return to Vancouver in about two  weeks, when they will be tendered  a civic reception.  Grand Forks, B. C, Sept. 13.���  James Gilujoire, aged ten, was hugged, severely bitten and scratched  by a performing cinnamon bear on  the street in this town last evening,  but hopes are entertained of his ultimate recovery. The boy was pushed within the bear's reach by some  of his comrades.  Havana, Cuba, Sept. 13.���It ; is  xeported in official circles here that  Alfred Zayas, who . is president of  the Cuban Liberal party and vice-  president of the Cuban Seriate, has  joined the insurgent forces outside  of the city.   '  Ottawa, Sept.' 13.--A telegram  ueceived. here today from Dr. Saunders, who is in the prairie country,  says: 'I have viewed' the ' crops  between Calgary and Edmonton  and for live hundred miles east of  these (joints and have found the  wheat vail saved, iu good condition.  The crops of all cereals will average  well. . The., grain ,is . all  of a fine  quality and threshing is proceeding  in all sections."  Vancouver, B. C., ..Sept. 13'.���It  was ' made public here today that  Mrs. Adeline Guilbaiilt, a married  sister of Desiie Brothier who resides  in Seattle at present.'has refused to  return to Vancouver to give evidence against the recently pardoned  Frenchman at his forthcoming trial  on a charge of forgery. The reason given by the, woman for her  refusal is .that-she is disgusted with  British Columbia justice, 'and par-  ticularty with-that of the Dominion  authorities, for having released her  brother from prison after having  served only two years of a seven  years' sentence for procuring ������ and  vagrancy..- "��� -���      ' .;     ���  San Francisco, Sept. 14.���The  coast steamer City of Topeka reached this port yesterday with two  gaping holes in her side as.the result of striking 'a rocky reef ' near  Point ��� Arena in the early morning  fog. The. steamer , carried a large  number of' passengers and had a  narrow escape from foundering, but  there were-no fatalities.  ��� New York, - Sept. 14. ���A Berlin  cable of. yesterday states that Emperor William on Wednesday narrowly escaped death by an anarchist  bomb while at Breslau. Three foreigners, who had been commissioned  by the terrorist organization to assassinate the Kaiser during the military manoeuvres at that place, were  arrested shortly before the time set  for the carrying out of their diabolical intentions.  .- Valparaiso. Chile, Sept. 14.���Another violent earthquake shock  occurred ��� throughout this city aud  district ou Wednesday evening, 12th  inst., and caused a terrible panic.  After the first shock slight quakes  continued at short intervals for some  time. There were but few houses  occupied'in the town during the  past few nights.as the people, fearful of further shock and loss of life,  sleep in the parks and open   places.  Prince Albert, Sask., Sept. 14.���  It has been decided that the penitentiary for the province of Saskatchewan will be built near this  town at a cost of half a million dollars. One thousand two hundred  acres of land will be required in  connection with the institution,  which will contain one hundred  cells."'  ' '  ���"    '.'���";   ' ~ A;  Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 14.���Sir  Tbos. Shaughnessy, the president  bi the company; Win. White, western superintendent; and several  other officials and directers of the  Canadian Pacific Railway arrived  here yesterday on a tour of inspection of the company's lines.  The C. P.

The Princ,ess  May sailed for Sakway Thursday  night. i, .;  Pilot Mound, Man., Sept., 14.'���  Eire, destroyed   the . Massy-Harris  company's warehouses and 'other  business buildings here early yesterday morning. The loss amounts to  over $20,000.  GKNKUAI/ NliWS.  At Dawson hist week Jack (Twin)  Sullivan defeated Nick Burley in a  punching bout.  At Putney, on the 8th inst.,Cambridge won the boat race from Harvard by two lengths-. -  British Columbia riflemen won a  majority of- the cups and-prizes at  the recent D. R. A. meet at Ottawa,  besides which they secured at least  five positions on the'07 Bisleyteam.  ' A severe earthquake was felt at  St. Lucia aud Grenada on the island  of St. Vincent, West Indies, on the  7th inst. The shock was (quite  strong and protracted, but very little  damage was done.  The Washington authorities have  ordered all American battleships on  the Asiatic' station lb return home.  They will be replaced by armored  cruisers, which are thought to be  more, effective inthe Orient.'  The first race between-American  and German yachts, for the Roosevelt  cup took place at Marblehead,  Mass., on the 6lh inst. and was won  by the American yacht Vim. A  later, despatch states that the. Vim  won 'three straight races.  Mrs. W. H. Thompson, mother  of Chester Thompson who murdered  Judge G. M. Emory at Seattle some  weeks ago, is said to be dying. The  trial of the boy has been postponed  indefinitely on that account. The  mother has never been informed of  the crime committed by her son.  The French ship Ville de Mul-  house arrived at Seattle last week  with her crew all ill with scurvy.  The ship encountered a storm near  Cape Horn, her sails were carried  away and for sixty days she was  driven about by hurricanes. Vegetables became exhausted aud scurvy,  broke out, with the result that the  cook died, the carpenter became insane and the whole crew took sick.  A late despatch fromValdez says:  For the first time since white men  have been in this section Mt. Wrau-  gell is perfectly quite, not a particle  of smoke is coming from the crater.  The Indians predict that this is a  sure sign of an eruption. They say  "Pretty soon kalipi," and are moving their habitations from the neighborhood of the rivers, in anticipation of a flow of lava, which would  melt the glaciers around the crater  and cause a flood in the valle3'.  On Sept. 8th General Guerrera,  leader of the revolutionary forces in  Cuba, refused point blank to consider any proposals for peace which  did not provide for the annulment  of the last presidential election in  that republic. He said that there  must be an agreement for another  election whereat every legal voter  shall have an opportunity to have  his ballot' received and counted at  once, as a condition precedent to  peace arrangements. He'refused to  consent to an armistice for 10 days  on any other basis than an immediate agreement for such an election.  Guerrera claimed to have over 3,000  well armed and well drilled men in  the field and said they would resume  hostilities at oiice unless his counter  proposition was agreed to.  The Law Courts.  Clay v. Queen���-His- Honor Judge  Young handecl' down judgment in -  this case on Tuesday, the judgment  being (without reasons) for the. defendant. The reasons for judgment  are promised some time iu, the next  few days. In this action motion .  was made on Wednesday for security  for costs of the interlocutor appeal,  mentioned last week, and the usual  order was made. , His Honor has  reserved the matter of" the costs of  the first trial.  Beatty v. Northern ��� Mines Ltd.  (lien case)���Came up on Tuesday  and was stood over till Thursday to  allow the company time to get  money from Vancouver. Oh Thursday it was again stood over as  money had uot arrived. Mr. Woods  for plaintiff, Messrs. Taylor, Mason  and Fisher for defendant company.  Kaye v. Switzer (which was tried'  last year)���Came up on Tuesday  and was adjourned till Monda3r..  P. C. P. Co., Ltd., v. Grime,  Pearse, et al���An application made  under the . terms of an order of the  full court reversing His Honor's decision, camet up -on Tuesday and  was stood over till Monday.  On Monday-and Wednesday the  cross-examination of Messrs. J. M.  Ruffuer, J. A. Fraser and W. P.  Grant on their affidavits in re Pine  Creek Flume Co. v. Pine Creek  Power Co., Ltd., was held before  Registrar- Yo'iihg. '       ' '  Deisler v. Prescott et al, tried two  weeks ago. His Honor ou Monday  fixed the damage sustained by the  defendants by reason of an'injunction  at$ioS. '      "    '  Thomas v. Harris���This case,  which is an. action for $6,100 for  trespass on and damages to a placer  claim, opened on Thursday before a  jury.' Thursday afternoon Judge  Young, the jury and the principals  and solicitors drove to Gold Run  and viewed the claim in the case.  The trial proceeds as we go to press.  Mining; rotates.,  ' S. H. Plumbe, manager for the  McKee Amalgamated Hydraulic  Co., was in town ou Saturday last  with a clean-up which his company  made the previous Tuesday. Five  hundred and thirty-three ounces of  gold, valued at over $9,000, were  obtained as the result of 23 days  piping. Although the water was  slowly (ailing off, the company last  week commanded a 6-iuch head  and Mr. Plumbe is fairly confident  that he will have one, if not two,  good clean-ups before the end of the  McKee creek season.  Hy. Nicholson, who returned to  town lately from Taku Arm, where  he had for some time previous been  doing development work on his  group of five free-milling quartz  claims, informs us that he staked  and secured control of three of these  claims in 1S99 and that he secured  the other two this season. The  vein, as shown by the work which  has been done, averages from seven  to. twelve feet iu width and is well  defined. The ore carries good values  in gold and, taken altogether, the  property gives promise of becoming  ; very valuable. ATLIN,   B. C,    SATURDAY,    SEPTEMBER    15.   1906.

Uncle Sam's mail service wlien a  passenger steamer of the class of the  Humboldt, and .running on'a fast  schedule, comes to Alaska every 10  days for month after month without  mail. It has been said before, but  it will bear repealing, that every  passenger steamer ' coming from  Puget sound to Alaska should carry  mail. The people of this district  are contributing enough in the way  of direct taxes and commercial prestige to the states to entitle them to  that.���Skagway Alaskan.  Hear, hear! Similar sentiments  to the above are felt throughout this  district and the-Yukon towards the  Dominion postal department in respect to our own mail, and there is  no reason but that every fast boat  sailing from Vancouver, Victoria or  Seattle to Skagway should bring the  Canadian mails. With us,' our mail  is either a feast or a famine, the latter condition prevailing too often.  The initial number of the Tanana  Daily Miner, which is a newsy and  well got up, 24 page paper issued  at Fairbanks under the management  of W. F. Thompson, late of Dawson,  arrived at our office last week.  Our Fairbanks friend evidently  got -his exchange list mixed as he  addressed us, "Lowery's Claim,  Atlin, B. C." No, thanks. To our  knowledge, Lowery never" ventured  so far north,-and recent advices informed up that he was last month  frozen out" at Nelson by the P. O.  department and. is now examining  the pike in the' direction of Los  Angeles.    "   '  ' '���'  A man in Arkansas was recently  tried for assault and battery with intent to kill. . The state brougut into  court' of the weapons used a rail,  axe, guii, a pair of tongs, saw and  ;iifle. The defendant's counsel exhibited as the other man's weapons  a scythe, pitchfork, pistol, dog,  razor and hoe. The jury decided  the crise as follows: "We,- the jury,  would have given a dollar to have  seen the fight."  "Canada is moving towards independence," says a Dominion sena-  ���tor. "Great Scott! . Isn't she sassy  and independent enough already?"  ���Boston Globe.  Tbe net receipts of the British  government from duty, on coal exported in the fiscal year ending with  March, 1906, were $10,919,865, as  against $10,263,870 in the previous  12 months.  Alaska, geologically', is'one of the  latest portions of the continent.' The  west coast and the Aleutian islands  are of very recent volcanic upthrow,  and the entire peninsular islands  and Behring Sea basin are still rising. The ibrces at work are shown  not only by the vast number of volcanoes in eruption, or those having  be&r active recently, but also by the  numerous valuable hot springs.- The  southeastern strip and archipelago  are believed to be later than the  Triassic period; they are part, of the  Rocky mountain granitic system,  overlaid by sedimentary rocks. The  St. Elias is thought to be the youiig-  est range on the continent, and is  post-Tertiary in elevation.���Mining  World.  THE   AGES   OF   MAN.  It started long before he knew  Or   thought  to reason whence or  why, , ���  When he was but a little boy  They said he was too old to  cry.  At twenty-live he sought a job,'  "Ah,   no,"'they said,   "you   are  too young,"    '  Ten years went by, he tried   again,  "Too  old,"   he  heard   on every  tongue.  At thirty-six he sought a wife���  "Too old," was hinted his rebuff.  He popped again at fifty-six,  Quoth   she,      "You're    not   old  enough."  At seventy he up and dies,  And left these scenes of good and  ill.  His   wrangling  heirs  set  forth   in  court   _,  He was too old to make a will.  A puzzling question thus  remains,  We ask it of the modern sage, - '  How  could  he live three score and  ten  And never strike the proper age?  ,   ���Brooklyn Life  Ole Dahl arrived in Whitehorse  oh the 6th inst. from Gold Hill,  where he says 20 men are employed  by Col. Conrad at 'mining while  others are building trails and stone  houses and otherwise preparing for  winter.
