work fell on the roof right over my
bed; broke un iron stay through into
the room anil knocked down the
plaster. Fortunately there was a partition ' right under the centre of the
mass of brick, which held together.
Thisiilono prevented it coming through
the roof, possibly going right down
the basement. On the top Boor I had
been sleeping soundly and in waking
up didn't realize the predicament I
was in till the crash of the chimney
overhead and another a few feet away,
smashing the reef, the house swaying
and creaking like Bixty. I jumped
out of bed and, fearing bricks on the
head, grabbed the bed clothes and
held tbem over me, while I made a
wild rush for the door. Then, as the
worst was over for the time being, I
thought I'd run chances of getting
s-sme clothes on rac and turned back,
scrambling around fur them some few
moments without any success. The
fun* of it was Fd taken a notion of
pealing off my flannels in tbe night
and had nothing on—not even a
string. I was afraid to strike a match
lest the gas should be leaky, as the
iron bar looked like a broken gas pipe.
"The shock had been so violent as to
shake my clothes off the chair where I
had put them, and tho plaster had
covered them up. After dressing I
couldn't find my hat. I finally discovered it under a pile of books that
had been knocked down. O, I've forgotten my eggs! The restaurants are
all, or a good many of them, knocked
endwise, so I started my old stove
and cooked while writing. The landlady is just in to warn me to gather
everything togother and vacate, as the
fire is coming this way.
■"Another shock. The water pipes
seem all right at this end of town if
there are any firemen.

out and see how things are."

"As I write I hear ever now and
then the sound of dynamite going off
and blowing up fipe houses in the efforts of the fire department to stop
the flames which have spread after
the severe earthquake we had just
before daybreak this morning—5:20.
People are camped out on the streets
and in the open squares, sitting beside
their household goods. Some escaped
from fire, others from fallen or falling
buildings. It's a terror to look around
the city.    About a ton of heavy brick

MacDonald & MacDonald Secure a $10,000 Contract
From Granby Company
W. H. Itter and bride, nee Miss
Alta Mardon, returned to the eity
yesterday afternoon from their wedding tour. They were married in
Santa Rosa, Cal., on the day before
tho earthquake, and left the same
evening for the lurne of the bride's
uncle, near that city, thus probably
escaping the awful death that overtook so many of thecitizeiiB of Santa
Rosa. Mr. Itter gives a graphic account of the great calamity, and
says that the telegraphic accounts of
havoc wrought by the earthquake
and flames do not exaggerate the
gruesome scen*s to be met with
on every side. He is of the opinion,
however, that a great many stories
of barbaric cruelty, and looting are
purely ficticious.
The contract for the steel roofing
in connection with furnace building
at the Granby smelter has been
awarded to Messrs. J. C. and A. .1.
MacDonald, of tho Grand Forks
Steel Construction Works. The
Granby company is to furnish all
the drawings and raw material, and
the contractors will furnish the
plates, rafters, etc., and do the
erecting. The work will be commenced about three months hence.
When completed the whole roof of
the furn.ice building will be of steel.
The contract will amount to between
§8,000 and $10,000.
Mr. and Mrs. M. S. Martin left
yesterday morning for Spokane,
where Mr. Martin has purchased
property and where they will reside
permanently hereafter. Mr. and
Mrs. Martin are old timers of this
city, and their numerous friends
here wish them good luck in their
new home across the line. They
have rented their residence in this
city to Dr. Dickson.
The extradition case of Edgar
Stone, accused of breaking into
Blue's saloon, in Danville, and

Nelson jail for fifteen days until the
extradition papers, properly signed,
return to this city from Ottawa. A.
C. Sutton appeared for the prisoner,
and E. Miller for the state of Washington. Provincial Cohstahle I. A.
Dinsmore will leave for Nelson with
the prisoner tomorrow.

Nearly 2000 men are at work on
the 32 mile section of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway, and
the grade is being pushed forward
as rapidly as possible between Midway and Molson. A 200 foot tunnel
is being driven six miles west of
Midway, in Myers creek canyon,and
this should be completed next month
or early in June. Considerable work
remains to be done on both sides of
the valley in the neighborhood of
Midway, the line crossing the valley
on a 900 foot trestle to be built.
Two miles beyond the Myers, creek
valley another tunnel 350 feet long
is being driven. Heavy work was
encountered along Rock creek and
on Anarchist mountain*. One cut
completed north of the international
line involved the removal of [62,000
cubic yards of earth, and another
south of the line and near Molson
measures 70,000 cubic yards.
The Dominion Copper Company,
Ltd., the chief mines of which are in
Phoenix camp, and the smelter at
Boundary Falls, lias this week placed
large orders for machinery, through
Thomas R. Druminond, the manager,
which will be used for a central power
plant for the company's mines in the
heart of Phoenix camp. A contract
was given to R. P. Williams, of Ross-
laud, agent for the Canadian Rand
Drill Compa'ny.of Sherbrooke, Quebec,
far a tandem compound electric drive
air compressor, having a capacity at
sea level of 2,720 cubic feet of free
air per minute, equivalent to about
2,300 feet at the elevation of Phoenix.
This machinery is similar to that now
in use by the Granby Consolidated,
but smaller, and will be rated at about
25 machine drills. This compressor
will be driven by an electric motor of
100 horse power, an order for which
will be placed in a few days. Delivery of the air compressor is promised
iu (50 days.
British Columbia lumber is to be
admitted free of duty at San Francisco during the rebuilding of that

Hall Was Beautifally Decorated—Efficient Work of
Committees
The annual dance given by Gateway Lodge No. 45, I.O.O.F., in the
Grand Forks opera house last Friday
evening proved, as anticipated, the
social event of the season, and the
various committies having in charge
the arrangements have every cause to
feel amply rewarded. The hall had
been prettily decorated with greenery,
draperies, flags and the l.O.O.F. emblem. A decided innovation was the
placing of the orchestra stand in the
centre of the hall, where the Ritter
orchestra made excellent music for
the dancers.
About seventy couples attended.
The program Consisted of over twenty
numbers, and it was a thoroughly
tired crowd that wended its way
homeward in the wee sma' hours of
the morning. Many beautiful gowns
were worn by the ladies, but the
Sun's society reporter is more at home
with farming implements than with
the finery worn by the fair sex.
Mayor Hutton was Hour manager,
and the following committees deserve
special credit for the able manner in
which they perfected the arrangements: General, Geo. Rutherford, I.
A. Dinsmore, R. Frache, W. B. Bower, F. E. Cooper; reception, A. L.
Clements, J.F. Kennedy, Fred Clark,
Geo. Murphy, Walter Dewdney; Huor,
Geo. Chappie, Carl Wolfram, Walter
Hadden. Excellent refreshments
were served down stairs by Mr. and
Mrs. Stendal abuut midnight.

Thon seest the white seas strike their
tents,
0, Warder of two continents!
And, scornful of the peace that Hies
Thv angry winds and sullen skies,
Thou   d'rawest all  things,  small   or
great,
To thee, beside the Western Gate.
0, lion's whelp, thou hidest fast
In jungle growth of spire and mast!
I know thy cunning and thy gicd,
Thy hard high lust and wilful deed,
And all thy glory loves Ut telll
Of specious gifts material.
Drop down, O Fleecy Fog, and bid
Her skeptic sneer and all her pride!
Wrap her, 0, Fog, in gjwn and hood
Of her Franciscan Brotherhood.
Hide me Iiijt faults, her sin and blame;
With thy gray mantle cloak her shame!
To shall she, cowled, sit and pray
Till morning bear*, her sins away.
Then rise, 0 Fleecy Fog, and raise
The'glnry of her coming days;
Be as the cloud that Heck the seas
Above her smoking argosies;
When forms familiar shall give place
j To stranger speech and newer face;
When all her throes and anxious fears
Lie hushed in the repose of years;
When Art shall raise and Culture lift
Tae sensual joys and meaner thrift',
And all fulfilled the vision we
Who watch and wait shall never see;
Who, in the morning of her race,
Toiled fair or meanly in our place,
But, yielding to the common lot,
Lie unrecorded and forgot.
