COUNTRY as the fire is sweeping eastward down Crows Nest, and unless the wind shifts incalculable damage will he done yet. The towns of Hosmcr, Sparwood, Elko, Olson, Cokato, Wardrop are already reported completely burned. Lack of wire communication makes reports meagre at this time. The Canadian' Pacific is rushing re lief trains, doctors, nurses, food and clothing t.i the destitute. V. V. Tut tb mayor of Kernie, has" wired Mayor Ashdown of Winnipeg for relief, stat ing that fi.imo are homeless. A bulle tin from Michel says the town is doomed. The Canadian Pacific is making up special trains to carry the inhabitants to safety. ONE HUNDRED LOST. Over one hundred lives are now known to have been lost. 74 at I'ernie. A territory of 1"0 square miles in ex tent is in flames, in which there are scattered hundreds of lumbermen ujid prospectors, so that the actual loss of life will not be known for days. Un less then is a change of the wind within the next 2A hours the whole. Crows Cest Pass country will be devastated. There is no possibility of estimating the loss of life and proper ty which will result. The fire is being driven hj' the gale which renders it impossible to check its advance. The inhabitants have fled into the open districts in hope gf saf ty.

The conflagration Is the greatest in the history of Canada and only ranked by the disaster at Han Francisco. For the past month brush fires have been were not considered serious. On Sun day morning a heavy wind from the west sprang up and the flames ran down from the mountain crest above Fernie, and before the fire guard could be organized the conflagration seized the town. The inhabitants fled leaving all .behind, to a small prairie in the valley thirty miles south. There are new 3,"0 people camped in the open, their only protection shelters of brush and blankets, while they are continually showered by sparks through the pall of smoke by which they are surrounded. One hundred cars of coke, the prop erty of the Great Northern, were lick ed up and stock piles of 500,000 tons of coal and coke are now in flames. It is feared that the fire may enter the mines themselves, which would mean monstrous damage, as the whole val ley is underlaid with coal. The fire is now following the crest of the moun tain chain above Sparwood, eating down into the valley on either side. At the rate it is traveling it will be in Montana within twelve hours. Premier Campbell arrived from Sparwood at Michel on a handcar with three men badly burned trying to save the Sparwood Lumber company. Man ager Forester of the mill, with his wife and thirty men were last seen fighting the fire and were rut off by fire on all sides except the west. Un less they were able to get out they are all dead, for the country is a furnace. Fire-fighting apparatus is of no avail. The air is filled with fragments of burning wood and the flames leap ahead of the conflagration as by spon taneous combustion. The heat Is In tense and many gallant fire-fighters have gone down to death. APPEAL TO GOVERNMENT. Ottawa Will Take the Matter Up This Morning. Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 2.

BRYAN BUSY WITH HIS ALFALFA He Finds Time Between Cuttings to Talk of Politics. Fairvicw, Lincoln, Neb.. Aug. 2 The opinion of Attorney General Bon aparte, delivered yesterday, holding it to he illegal for the national banks of Oklahoma to contribute to a guaranty fund for the protection of depositors under the state banking act, was the subject of discussion here today. Fol lowing closely upon the heels of the Standard OH reversal and the con tempt cases against the labor leaders in Washington, this opinion 4s held to strengthen the democratic party in the coming campaign. ' Bryan said: "It accentuates the is sue anil emphasises the necessity of legislation framed from the standpoint of the depositor rather than the stand point of the banker." Having gotten his acceptance speech off his hands, Bryan is directing his thought to his farm. He is about to gather the third crop of alfalfa this season. , o RULER OF HOUSEHOLD AS WELL AS KINGDOM Alfonso Has Taught His Mother-in-law Her, Place. Royal Madrid, Aug. 2. Poor King Alfonso of Spain has discovered to his sor row that even in royal families mother-ln-laws are no better than they urc pictured in the comic pa pers. The mother of Queen Victoria, Princess Henry of Battenberg en deavored in keeping with mother-in-law traditions to run the household of the young couple at Madrid. At first the jars in married life were slight but daily they increased in violence until the king put his foot down and gave his mother-in-law an exhibition of royal temper which would have done justice to his relative by marriage of King Edward of England. The quarrel was tempestuous and the compliments exchanged entirely outside ' the book of court conversa tion so the niMher-in-law suddenly packed her trunks and left the pal ace vowing she would never return. This Ifappened several weeks ago but so strsined are the relations be tween herself and her royal son-in-law that not even during her daugh ter's recent illness did she visit her. King Alfonso who is stubborn is determined to have his own way in his household and will tolerate no in terference from any of his wife's relatives. The young queen who is greatly in love with her hotheaded husband is entirely on his side and refuses to see her mother until she promises never to consider herself anything but a guest when at Madrid. GLASSY GAME WON BY TUCSON A Pitcher's Battle, With Fine Support Phoenix Camo Near Goal Twice Wyncoop Officia ted Very Satisfactorily. Tucson 10000000 0 1 Phoenix 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Our All-Stars were taken Into camp yesterday but they were not disgraced, though beaten. What proved to" be the peachiest game seen on the home soil fast Tievelopcd into a pitchers' battle with the honors about even between Ernie "Williams and Myran, loth strong at the finish. It ' Wiis sad to say the least that something could not have happened, by which our home boys could have acquired a lonesome tally to tie the affair, 'it might then at the pace it was traveling have gone several rounds overtime up to the steenth inning. But it didn t and the AII- rtars were served with a goose-egg on a silver platter. The game was full of features. The attendance was one to be noted. Funny how people, who live in a dry country when they see a cloud as big as Barnum's tent, all stay in the shelter- for fear they will get a bath, or the game may not be so fancy or something awful may be pulled off. That's the way it was yesterday afternoon and many fans missed the liest contest of the sea son. Drat the luck. Considering the distance, Tucson turned out better than Phoenix and the local rooting band made only a dismal wheeze now and then, as some one did a feat or two. The locals muda money tho'ugh they lost, but the crowd was not what it should have been. To get back to the subject Myran kept our lads breaking their bac-ltw after that straight drop ball and smiting the air vainly after his swift high one. That combination worked to a frazzle and even Scotty slit the ozone three successive times. Ernie had a variety of angles in store and his spit ball which he is learning to handle was the proper dope and they could not hit it worth a cent. As a matter of record Williams al lowed less bingles, the ratio being f-tita t-?M;roi- .ire, tnt-ttl" latter went him one better on' tfie srikeouts, having eight to his credit. Myran only walked one man. Ernie was more liberal and issued two romps to first and hit one man in the bar gain. But none of these tendencies to philanthropy helped tile other side to the score column and Ernie was entitled to win or at least to a nothing to nothing game up to its close. ' Tucson's run came In the opening. Williams started the first session by striking out Pacheco first up. That looked encouraging. Then Savage who is not as bad as his name, clout ed the ball toward second ami Uri jalva after a nimble sprint let the ball pass through his hands and feet If he had only sat on it or set his hoof in the pathway, well it might have precluded that tally. No censure need apply, it will happen. Savage was safe on this error. Bed ford who used to have the name of "Homerun". Bedford ill bygone days had been debited with two strikes, but the next one, say it was a pippin, right over the pan, and he nearly knocked the cover off. It sailed to right field and Mitchell was slow ill fielding the ball back to the diamond and Savage ran clear home from first on that two-base swat. The next two were easy outs on ground ers. Our athletes were not discouraged, believing in the old adage that one run doesn't win a game, that is, pro vided someone else gets two. In the Phoenix half of this session War ner fouled out to first and Tebben fanned. A cheer arose from the grandstand as Scott sauntered up. He responded with a single to right and a wild heave from htat quarter gave him sec ond. Magoffin was up and hope ran high. Scott proceeded to third on a steal and things bright ened. Two strikes and three balls were charged up to the batter and Scott as the ball was being delivered, made a last and desperate effort to get home. He had . stolen clean but here's where the rub comes in. It was the third strike, the ball was spinning merrily towards the center of the plate about waist high and Scott was less than a yard from the goal. There was nothing left for Magoffin to do but to swing at it and he did, but the ball careened into the third fielder's clutches and the run couldn't count. Just to illus trate how close that was to the need ed score, had it been- a ball instead of the fatal strike, Magoffin would have walked down to first and Scott would have been safe at the plate, or had it been only the second strike and Magoffin took it but what is the use of summarizing the "its" for tljey bobbed up all theway along through that pretty exhibition. Lopez rapped smartly to right in the second round but Morris flew to right and Bedford gathered in Gri jaiva's fly after a natty run. Tucson was easy meat for several rounds. They hadn't a ghost of a show of any more runs. In the third Morris cut off Pacheco stealing second with a perfect throw to Warner who cov ered the bag. Warner singled in the Jhird and Morris in the fifth but nothing came of it. There were enough hits but they never came in bunches, and Tucson threw in no bobbles to help what were made. In the fourth when Tucson was at bat, Williams assisted himself into a hole by passing Rodford and hit ting Laughlin. Here a classy double play that " woke up the rooters on both sides was executed from War ner to Grijalva to Tebben and choked off the budding tally. From then on it was a fight to a finish Tucson getting but one man to sec ond in all these rounds. Williams was complete master of the situation and occasionally struck out a batter just for pructice. The final look-in for a score came in the seventh and whether Phoenix tied Jt up or lost the game was all thrown on the shoulders of Umpire Wyncoop in this instance. It must be admitted it was a close, very close play and w hile it went against us, not a holler was made and no dispute marred the game. Probably Wyncoop might have thought himself mistaken later for he threw a few favors on, way, if any way, on other de cisions which were rendered. Faith in Wy'icoop's fairness, and squareness was never better demonstrated. Two were deacL in the inning referred to. Morris walked to first and Grijalva drove the ball safe to riglft and Mor ris went to third. The ball was thrown to second and Morris made a sprint homeward. The ball was re hayed to the plate, both ball and runner ariving almost simultaneously The catcher put the ball on him as he slid in and Wyncoop waved him out with a sweeping gesture as If he meant it. As has been said we don't dispute that decision but that run would have came In mighty handy The All-Stars would have taken it greedily and said thanks awfully, don't you know. The next two bats for Phoenix were non-productive, not a man reaching first to ive and tell the tale. As a brilliant windup Gon zales, at short for Tucson, snaked in Mitchell's liner from midair and ev eryone went his way satisfied. Phoenix has signed up to play Tuc son on September 1st and 2nd.

Adams St Phons 1490 AN6L0-GERMAN WAR SET FOR NEXT SPRING The Fatherland In Preparation for the In : eyitable Conflict The Signifiicance ot the Late English Naval Maneuvers Along the Scandinavian Coast The British Com plain ot German Spies. Berlin, Aug. 2. There is war in tne air and uneasiness everywhere. Even before Lord Cromer's recent warlike speech in the house of lords in which he warned the British nation to pre pare for the great European conflict! that must come, the general opinion here was that war with England and her allies will come not lator than next spring. Warlike rumors of all kinds are con tinually leaking out from the govern ment offices and although they are invariably denied they do not fail to make a strong impression upon the people. According to one of the latest of these rumors the German govern ment is planning to close the mouths of all German rivers to navigation by all but German vessels. The truth of this report was Im mediately denied, but the very alert ness of the government in declaring the rumor without any foundation has been found suspicious and, as the building of military barracks at the mouth of th'? rivers Elb? and Weser is being rushed with all possible speed, there is every reason to believe the humor was right and if this be the case then it means that the govern ment is preparing against a sudden at tack by a British fleet such as recently visited Scandinavian waters. That this enormous fleet, the larg est the world has ever seen was sent out merely to discoti re the Nor wegians who desire to Ret rid of King Haakon and his English born queen and make Norway a republic, nobody here believes. The assembling of the fleet was evidently undertaken to im press Germany and execute such man euvers as would actually take place in case of war between the two coun tries and for this very reason thp scope ami results of the maneuvers were kept a deep secret.

Circumstantial stories have been printed describing how mysterious German spies were living next dixir to every postoftice on the east coast and it was actually declared that a party of German officers were executing a "stnff ride" in Epping Forest, the ap proach to London from the northeast.

THE MAD DUCHESS PRINCESS ROYAL Melancholia Appears to Have Des cended to Her Young Daughters. London, Aug. 2. That the Duchess of Fife, known as the Princess Roy al, is on the verge of insanity is tho report which is being discussed quite openly in court circles although no newspaper has said anything about it. During the last two years tho duchess has been in very poor health and been suffering from spells of melancholia which have greatly alarmed her physicians. Late this spring she absolutely refused to see or speak to anybody for several weeks and when she finally emerged from the spell she was found to be subject to fits of temper durim which she would "abuse 'her husband and servants in the most violent manner. At times it was even nec essary to use force to prevent her from doing bodily harm to her sur roundings. It was for this reason that she was sent on a cruise but according to the latest reports neither her general health nor mental condition have im proved and it is thought she will soon httve to return to England to undergo a fourth operation which will prob ably benefit her no more than the three previous ones. What causes the duke greatconcern is that the young" daughters of the couple seem to have inherited their mother's mel ancholy disposition though their phy sicial health is very good. iiRiiiiuiiiiiuunjiuiuiiniiiiniuuiiinr ISO ACRES!
