S. Co. that the loss of life would  reach 1300. It is-now seerr that the  loss goes a little over 1600.  The Senate of the United States are  pioceeding with an investigation at  which all the surviving officers of the  -Titanic and some of the men are being  detained.  The leading points of the investigation thus far are that the captain was  driving the ship at full speed with the  hope of establishing a new record and  that they had received warning from  two separate sources that there were  icebergs in the locality where the ship  struck. It is also told by survivors  that there were no searchlights being  used and no extra lookout. The only  thing by way of precaution was that  the ship had been steered 60 miles  further south than the usual course irr  order to avoid icebergs.  It was further shown that the ship  had not struck the iceberg full on  which would have resulted in the destruction of only the forward bulkheads but had been given a glancing  blow which enabled the iceberg to rip  open the plates along a large portion  of the side and rendered so many of  the wa*rer-light. bulkheads useless that  any remaining bulkheads there might  have been were unable to keep her  afloat, and she went down by the  head.  The conduct of the officers and crew  after the accident was, however, most  commendable in the bravery and unselfishness it displayed and in this respect-they atoned in a great measure  for the fool hardiness and lack of care  which brought on the disaster. Neither was their'conduct better in this respect than thai of the passengers. The  captain's call to his crew through the  megaphone, "Be British" appealed to  the Anglo-Saxon that was in the passengers as well, and while there were  women or children aboard who were  willing to take their place in the boats  no men tried to displace them. The  men who were saved were taken into  the boats only after all the women except those who would not leave their  husbands were takerr oil'. Only two  men among the Canadians were saved. One of these got in because he  was required to man a boat and the  other accompanied his wife after there  were no other women to be saved.  Major Peuchen's narrative censures  the officers very much for the carelessness which brought on the disaster-  arid tells of incompetence on the part  of some of the ship's crew who were  manning the lifeboats.  Colonel Grade told how he was  driven to the topmost deck and jumped just before her final plunge has  passed.  "1 jumped with the wave," said  Colonel Grade, "just as I often have  jumped with the breakers at the seashore. By great good fortune I managed to grasp the brass railing on the  deck above, audi hung on by might  and main. When the ship plunged  down I was forced to let go and I was  swirled around and around for what  seemed to be air  indeterminable time.  DOWN   WITH  THIS  SHIT  "After the sinking of the ship it appeared to me as if I were propelled by  some great force through the water,  this might have been occasioned by  explosions under the water. I recall  that I was most fearful of being boiled  to death.  I reached the surface after a time  that seemed unending. , There were  dying men and women all about me  groaning and crying pitcously.  Prior1 to his departure for London on  Sunday last, Hon. Mr. McBride, as  minister of mines, concluded his consideration of the testimony taken at  tho coroner's inquiry into the circumstances of the recent deplorable disaster at the collieries of the Diamond  Vale Coal company, near Merritt, the  verdict of the jury sitting at Merritt,  and the subsequent special reports of  the provincial mineralogist, Mr. W.  Fleet liobertson, and the chief inspector of mines, Mr. Thomas Graham.  It is understood that the government will at an early date institute  proceedings against the colliery company under. the Coal Mines Regulations Act, but not for manslaughter  under the criminal law.  The result of the minister of mines'  investigations, with his memoranda  thereon, is now obtaining the consid-  eeation of the attorney general, to  whom the matter has been referred  for subsequent ac tion.  GRAND MASTER'S VISIT  Hedley Masons Honored by Presence of  Chief Executive of the  Order in B. C.  PROGRESS ON THE G.T.P.  Ottawa, April 17.���������Mr. Collingwood  Schrieher, chief consulting engineer  for the Dominion government, has  just returned from a tour of inspection  over the most recently constructed  portion of the G. T. P. main line in  the West. He was as far west as Tete  Jaime Cache, which is fifty miles west  of Yellowhead Pass. In conversation  with representatives of the press this  morning, Mr. Schrieher stated that  the Grand Trunk is now completed to  a point 278 miles west of Yellowhead  Pass. Track has been laid from Prince  Rupert 16-1 miles eastward. This leaves  a gap of 490 miles still to be'construct-,  ed. ' '    '  Mr. Schrieher remarked en the fact  that the line, so far built in British  Columbia represents the most difficult  of mountain construction. By the end  of the present month thirty-five more  miles will be graded on the section  this side of Tete Jaime Cache, while  on the section east of Prince Rupert  grading is being done to a distance of  2-15 miles east ��������� >f Prince Rupert.  Mr. Schrieher* reports that labor  conditions are unsettled in the northern part of British Columbia, although conditions are better than  they were a year ago.  Capt. Bernier, of the  steamer Arctic has been suspended  pending investigation of the charges  made against him and certain members of his crew who were accused of  engaging in fur trade with the natives  of the Arxjtic regions.  "Aerate-like block of wood floated  within my grasp and I grabbed it.  However. I saw an overturned boat a  short distance away and swam to it.  "On this raft���������it was really a collapsible boat that was called a. raft���������  there already were lying more than  twenty, men who seemed to heloni?  to the Titanic crew. Two men, one in  the how and the other in the stem*  propelled us through the wreckage  with pieces of wood which answered  for urn s.  For the first time since the lodge  was organized seven years ago Hedley  Lodge of-A. F. & A. M. had the honor  of entertaining the Grand Master of  the Masonic Grand Lodge of British  Cairrrnbia. The distinguished brother  came in from the Boundary and was  accompanied by Past Grand Master,  H. N. Rich, and Grand Senior Warden  John M. Rudd. Unfortunately their  time was limited, for the Grand Master, who is business manager for the  Vancouver Province newspaper is too  bus}' a man to remain a.w.iy longer  than is absolutely necessary, and consequently was unable to stay here as  long as the brethern iir Hedley would  have liked. On Friday, * the day  of their arrival, they were taken up  the tramway to see the Nickel Plate  mine and had the advantage of being  shown over the mitre by general superintendent, G. P. Jones, who piloted  the party. It was a new experience  to all of the visitors and they appeared to enjoy it very much.  In the evening the Grand Master  and suite met the members of the.  lodge and went very thoroughly into1  the work and standing of the lodge  pointing out wheie improvement  could he made ami offering most valuable suggestions. Orre most desirable  end to which he has1 drawn the attention of all the lodges in the province  is that of making adequate provision  for the safe keeping <_)f the records of  the lodge and their preservation from  danger of fire by having some fireproof receptacle. That his visit cannot  fail to prove of great value to the lodge  is evident to all for he has the faculty  of communicating much erf his own  enthusiasm and zeal to those with  whom he may come in contact in his  official capacity.  The Grand Lodge of British Coluiri  bia have ever set a very high standard  for its officers arrd particularly the occupants of the Grand Master's chair  and that high standard is well sustained by-the present incumbent. He is  the first Grand Master, who in visiting the lodges of the jurisdiction has  made it his business to see that Hedley lodge shall form part of his itinerary, and in the two officers of Grand  Lodge who accompanied him we have  the present, the past, and the future;  for, while Past Grand Master Rich was  unable to visit us during his term of  office, he has made ample amends for  the omission by accompanying the  Grand Master on this occasion.  After closing of the lodge a banquet  was spread and done ample justice to  as might well be expected after the  more or less arduous labors of the  fore part of the evening. The toast  list presented by W. Bro. S. E. Hamilton, the Master of the lodge, was  somewhat shorter than usual on such  occasions, but in view of the fact that  there were three noted visitors to  respond to that of the Grand Lodge it  made up in interest and throughness  what it lacked in length.     The toasts  THE STRIKE SITUATION  Railway Construction at Hope-A month's  Delay is Net Result of Strike  The West Yale Review of last week  has the following on the C. N. R.  strike:  "By noon to-day all the station men  on the C. N. R. construction between  Hope and Yale will be at work. Except at Camp, 12.all were at.work on  Friday. The bottom has fallen out of  the strike, the strikers are tired of  short commons and mock-court discipline and would gladly return to  work. The net result to tire contrac-  tractors will be a net delay of about a  month.  The activities of the provincial police has restored normal conditions  practically from Hope to Kamloops.  The strikers are still numerous but are  getting tired of their soup kitchens  and would like to get wages again to  spend as they please.  The bridge gang arrived at Hunter-  Creek Tuesday night and are now at  work with the span over Silver Creek.  The track-laying crew is beginning  its advance eastward from" Cheain towards Hope. West, from Cheain to  Port Mann, there is now a, well ballasted road, material for this work  having been taken from the gravel pit  at Cheain during the past few weeks'  delay. The slide has now been thoroughly cleared away, the slight trouble  over a right of way and compensation  at Popcurn has been straightened out.  and there is no obstacle between the  end of the track and Hope. The probabilities now are that the track will  reach Hope about the middle of May.  Ocean  THE INEVITABLE EFFECT  Blow in  Travel Receives Severe  the Titanic Disaster  Wrnnipeg, April ISth.���������Terrified by  the fate that overtook the Titanic,  warranted by the shipping agents  proof against all hazards of the sea, a  number of Winnipeg people are cancelling steamship reservations made  befoie the catastrophe. A local steamship agent says his company, which is  not connected directly with the tragedy, is losing a lot of eastbound business from western Canada.  A   KOOTENAY   MINING   SCHOOL-  Till-:   RAFT  FL'I'.I.  "Presently the raft became so full  that it seemed she would sink if more  came aboard, and the crew, for self-  preservation had to refuse to permit  others to climb aboard.  "Hold on to what you have, old boy,  we shouted to each man who tried to  get aboard. 'One nior-e of you aboard  will sink us all."  "And many whom we refused shouted as they went to the death, "good  luck and God bless you'.  "And so we passed the night, with  the waves washing over us and buried  in water under our feet.  "Long before light we stood in  columns, two deep back to back, balancing ourselves, fearful to move lest  the delicate balance should be disturbed and all of us thrown again into the  water. The hand of God seemed to  have soothed the sea. and it was calm  when we first saw the twinkling lights  of the Curpathiu. We recognized her  as our rescuer.  Concluded on Page Four.  were "The King and the Craft" to  which all responded by singing "God  Save the King." "The Grand Lodge  of British Colunibir" brought excellent  helpful addresses from the Most Worshipful Grand Master and the Past  Grand Master and Grand Senior Warden. "Pioneers in Masonry" was responded to by Bros. Brass, Cameron  and Megraw. The remaining toast  was that of "Visiting Brethern" which  brought in some lesident Masons who  have not yet affiliated with the lodge  here, while the Junior Warden's toast  and "Aulii Lang Syne" brought a very  pleasant evening to a close.  SHE IS GETTING THERE  Woman is  Raised to the Bench in  Australia.  Nelson,   B.   C.  April   16.���������The   announcement made  here on Thursday  night by Hon. H. E. Young, Minister-  of Education, when   waited upon by a  representative joint delegation asking  for  the  initiation  of a mining school  for  the Kootenay,  that the government would consider arranging courses  of lectures   for  prospectors   and  others  interested  in mining  if an  attendance  of fifteen  students  could bo  guaranteed, is being actively takennp-  The  terms   imposed  by  the  minister  are  regarded as ridiculously easy of  fulfilment,   and the opinion is general  that an   attendance of fifty  or   over  could    be   guaranteed    for   a   winter  course.    It is a notorious fact that the  money  sent out of the  Kootenay annually  for correspondence courses in  mining subjects would support an entire staff  of instructors.     There is no  doubt but that the provincial government will be invited to act on the minister's tentative promise, and establish  such a course at this city.  NOT CATCHING ON  Home Rule Receives Rebuff at Hands of  Electors of Nottingham  Melbourne, Australia, April 18th.���������  Nancy Isaacs, daughter of Justice  Isaacs, has been raised to the bench of  the Australian Commonwealth high  court and will be her father's judicial  associate. The appointment is regarded as the world's greatest triumph for  women lawyers. In Great Britain and  some of the great self-governing colonies women have not yet achieved admittance to the bar.  London, April 19.���������The East Nottingham by-election caused by the retirement through illness of Capt.  Morrison, resulted in a Unionist majority of 1,501. The figures are: Sir-  John Ress, Unionist, 6,482; T. AV.  Dobbson, Liberal. 5,158. This is the  first by election in which home rule  was made the leading issue and the  result of the contest was anxiously  looked forward to by the leaders of  both parties as an indication of how  the question of the hour is looked on  by the provincial electors.  Vancouver comes second in the list  of building permits in Canada for  month of March. Toronto is the only  other city ahead of her.

Titanic   disaster oir  the tendency to increase  the size  of  the ships seems a very prevalent error  on the part of many papers!    There is  really no good  reason we can see for  coining  to  that  conclusion.     It was  not the  size of the Titanic  but the  speed   at which she was  being  driven  and the lack of  proper  vigilance  and  care    that  was  at fault.     Long  immunity from mishap  is almost sure to  breed slackness, and  if the increase in  size could  in  any  way contribute  to  the direful result it was in the greater  feeling  of security   the  larger vessel  inspired, which   might induce a reckless   captain    to  relax   his    vigilance.  Common    carriers    require    constant  supervision   and it is   the  duty  of  all  governments   to  see   that  the  supervision will be both competent and constant.      How   the  British    Board   of  Trade  which had the responsibility of  .seeing that all   passenger ships  carry  ample  life-saving equipment for  the  number of    passengers, should  have  s-lifped   up   in    this    matter    seems  strange,   but nevertheless    they   did.  The   three   most   urgent    safeguards  would appear to be compulsory use of  searchlights after nightfall, the carrying of ample number' of life boats and  an   efficient system   of   wireless   telegraphy    with  an   ample   number 'of  operators to relieve one another.

Some-prospecting outfits have been  seen in town during the past week.  There is no part of the province that  offers better encouragement to those  pioneers of industry who have added  so much to the country's wealth than  the hills overlooking the Similkameen  river.  W. A. McLean has put up a neat  fence around his lots on the corner of  Scott avenue and White Street and  has sown the grounds with lawn--.grass  and Dr. McEwen has also prepared  his lots on Daly avenue for a lawn and  sown it. All these improvements help  out in beautifying the town.  The West Yale Review, published  at Hope, announces the return to that  place of James Corrigan after his stay  in the hospital in New Westminster.  'It further states that D. Neyin, who  has leased Mr. Corrigan's timber limits  on the Coquihalla, has made an assignment for the benefit of his creditors.  J. Procter, representing Tisdall's  Limited, Avas in town last week in the  interests of his firm. The business  formerly conducted by Chas. E.

The Great Northern have .given notice that as soon as the telegraph is  completed to Coahnont they will run  a train there twice a week., 'If that is  all it is going to be it will fall far short  of what the'1 people have been led to  expect, and the cutting out of the  Oroville layover with a daily through  run to Spokane would appear to be as  j far off as ever.  T. D. Pickard went to the Apex the  end of last week to note progress being made. He had a hard tramp of it  through- the amount of fresh snow  which had fallen. They are still working along and as the connection was  made some time ago between the tunnel they*were driving on and the drift  from-the .'bottom of the old shaft, the  development must be giving satisfactory results or they -would not be  pushing it along so steadily.  The break in the (flume at the big  trestle, while playing hob with April's  output and profits/came nevertheless  at a most opportune time and is a sort  of blessing in.disguise. Coming as it  did before the. water had made any  appreciable gain, the repairs effected  will .increase the carying capacity of  the flume to a considerable extent, for  thesagin the flume at that point decreased it a great deal and the change  made in effecting the repair will not  only restore the old normal so far as  that portion is concerned, but the How  of-water will be still.further needier-,'  ated by taking out the bend. Thus,  for several months to come, with the  full head of-water which can be counted on, the Big Doble waterwheel  should keep things humming, in fine  shape".

"The Marconi operator���������-one of the  37) on the raft, confirmed our hopes by  saying  that he knew it was the Car-  path ia.  Colonel Gracic denied with emphasis  ' that any men were fired upon and declared  that only  once was a  revolver  discharged in the air.  "This was for the purpose of intimidating some steerage passengers," he  said. "There was. do confusion and  ho panic".  "Before I retired," said Colonel  Gracie, "I had a long chat with Mr.  Charles M. Hays, president of the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad.  "One of the last things Mr. Hays  said was this:  'The White Star, the Cunard and  the Hamburg-American lines are devoting their attention and ingenuity  in vicing with each other to attain the  'supremacy in luxurious ships and in  making speed records. The time will  come when this will be capped by  some appalling disaster.'  "Poor fellow, a few hours later he was  dead."  "The conduct of Colonel .John Jacob  Astor was ��������� descrying of the highest  praise," Colonel Gracie declared. ,"The  millionaire New'Yorker," he said "devoted all his 'energies to saving his  young bride who was in delicate  health.'  "Colonel Astor helped us in our efforts to get her into the boat. I lifted  her into the boat and as she took her  place Colonel Astor requested permission of the second officer to go with  her for her own protection.  " 'No sir-,' replied the officer, 'not a.  man shall leave on a boat until the  women are all oft'.  "Colonel Astor then enquired the  number of the boat which was being  lowered away and turned to the work  of clearing other boats arid reassuring  the frightened and   nervous women.  "By this time the ship began to list  frightfully to port. This became so  bad that the second officer ordered  everyone to rush to the starboard  side. Thej' did this and found the  crew trying to get a boat off in that  quarter."  Colonel Gracie said that despite the  warnings of icebergs no slowing down  of speed was ordered by the.commander of the Titanic. There were other  warnings too, he said.  "In the twenty-four hours' run ending the 14th,"he said "the ship's run  was 510 miles and then we Avere told  that the next twenty-four hours would  see oven a better record posted.  "No diminution of speed was indicated in the run, and the engines kept  up their steady running. When Sunday evening came, we all noticed the  increasing- cold, which gave plain  warning that the ship was in close  proximity to icebergs or ieefieids.  "The officers, 1 am credibly informed, had been advised by wireless frorii  other ships of the presence of the icebergs and dangerous Hoes in that  vicinity. The sea was as smooth as  glass, and the weather clear, so it  seems that there was no occasion for  fear.  A young English woman who requested that her name be omitted, told  a thrilling story of her experience in  one of the collapsible boats, which had  been manned by eight of the crew  from the Titanic. The boat was in  command of the fifth officer, 11. Lowe,  who, she said, saved the lives of many  persons.  Before the lifeboat was launched he  passed along the port deck of the  steamer, commanding the people not  to jump into the boats and otherwise  restraining them from swamping the  craft. When the collapsible boat was  launched Officer Lowe succeeded in  putting up a mast and a small sail.  He collected the other* boats together'.  In some cases the boats were short  of adequate crews, and he directed an  exchange by which each was manned  adequately.  He threw lines connecting the boats,  two by two and all thus moved together. Later on he went back to the  wreck with the crew of one of the  boats and succeeded in picking up  some of those who had jumped overboard and were swimming about. On  his way back to the Oarpathia. he passed one of the collapsible boats which  was on the point of sinking with  thirty passengers aboard, most of  them iu scant nightclothing. They  were rescued just in the nick of time.  Hotel Keremeos  ...   Opposite G. N. li. Station  MRS.  A. F. KIRBY,, Proprietress.  Keremeos-Penticton-Mail Stage.
