NO 78 IGAN THE DISASTER BUT STILL Casualties of British Columbia Brush Fire Probably Overestimated It is Known Tliat Many "Were Saved From the Black Hand Incendiarism. Vancouver, Aug3. A message re ceived this afternoon from Fernie, 15. (. says that twelve bodies have been found among the ruins. Fears are ex pressed for the safety of HiO other per sons, although many of the missing may merely have become separated from friends in the excitement and confusion of the general conflagration. The general opinion this evening is that the casualty list announced yes terday and repeated today, was greatly exaggerated. Lust night Thomas P.iggs, secretary of the Fernie Miner union wired this city that he believed 170 persons had leen burned to death. I.ate this af ternoon the Associated Press corres pondent at Nelson, after interviewing many refugee. from the burned city wired that the deaths would not ex ceed a score. He adds that the re IKirt that sixty men and several wo men iwrished in a logging camp on Klk Creek, is now generally discredit ed. Here are the known casualties: Four men killed near Sparwood. fight ing the flames, at the treat Northern bridge, a woman at Fernie, carried from her home, placed in the yard and covered over, was burned. A woman on the first train died of fright, a man seen lying on his face at the side of the railroad track with flames play ing all around him.

FRIEDMAN REDUCED BAD ENOUGH Towns Keported Destroyed Flames A Suspicion oil the Canadian Pacific, are still safe. Hosmer late last night was believed to be safe, but the fire broke out again this morning. Another fire also occurred at Michel early today, though at midnight the news was tliat the place was out of danger. The women and children all have been removed from Michel, cast to Frank, or Blairmore. A number of buildings were burned this morning in Michel. A special to the Vancouver province, from Nelson, says: Rumor Is persis tent among the refugees from Fernie that the fire started in three separate places at once and that it looked as if some one had lighted them intentional ly. It is asserted that friends of the Iilackhand prisoners, who escaped last week and were recaptured, are respon sible for the conflagration, igniting the timber to create a diversion and lib erate the prisoners. The story is doubted, but it is persistent and is ac cepted by some prominent Fernie men. Relief trains with provisions, medi cines, clothing, hospitals stores, phy sicians and nurses are enroute from Winnipeg and Vancouver. It is def initely announced this evening that the town of Coal Creek, reported destroy ed is practically uninjured by the fire. The property loss at Fernie and sur rounding olnts will possibly be great er than was estimated. WORSE WORD FROM FERNIE Spokane, Aug. 3.

The destruction of life and property by the fire which raged east of Kootenai since Saturday still continues. Tonight the Michel situation is critical. The number of dead Is now estimated at 125. From 6000 to 7000 men, women and children in their flight from the flame swept region of the Crow's Nest ter ritory, are camped at Cranbrook and on the surrounding hills. Relief food and clothing are anxiously awaited. Ijtte tonight fires are raging on all sides of Michel and if high winds arise the destruction will spread. Shoi' the fire cross the riVer and enter the town, as it now seems likely, the en tire place will be doomed. In Fernie the loss of life was great est in the west end where the flames spread so rapidly that it was impo slble for the inhabitants to outrun the approaching heat. Searching parties were sent out for those who were over come. Bodies are being brought in every hour. AMERICAN OLYMPIANS. Still 'Showing the Irish How to Do Stunts. , Dublin, Aug. 4.

As the waste of brain and nerve cells in active work of this kind is great, It is import:it that the right kind of food -le regularly used to repair the waste. "I have used Grape-Nuts," writes a B. R. & P. operator, "for the past six or eight years, daily, buying it by the dozen pkgs. "A friend of mine, a doctor, who had been treating me for stomnch trouble and nervous exhaustion, rec ommended me to leave off so much meat and use fruit and vegetables with Grape. Nuts . as the cereal part of each meal. "I did so with fine results and have continued Grape-Nuts from that time to the present. I find in my work as R.

Candidate Taft has consented to make several speeches into a talking machine for reproduction. As the process of mak ing a phonograph record somewhat differs from making a campaign speech from a back car platform, or from a front porch, Mr. Taft today found Mrs. Taft laughing at him as he was doing a bit of rehearsing for real records. Several experimental talks made were reproduced with var ying degress of satisfaction. The speeches which a single record would hold average about 300 words in length. The topics to be discussed for repetition in this way have not as yet been decided upon. As an ex ample of what the machine can do, the candidate was treated to a reproduc tion of a record made by Bryan. Mr. Taft today fixed August 21 as the date for a rally by the Virginia republicans here. A committee of the bar association, which begins its twentieth annual meeting here tomor row, was received this morning by Judge and Mrs. Taft. The subject of politics was not mentioned. Mr. Taft will address the association on Thursday and he has been Invited to assist In entertainment at a banquet on Thursday night. THE UNTENANTS OF HITCHCOCK How the Work of the National Cam paign is to be Distributed. New York, Aug. 3. The management of the New York headquarters of the republican national committee. In the absence of Chairman Hitchcock, will be in the hands of Victor L. Mason, of Passaic. N. J., ap)oiritcd today as sistant secretary of the committee. The position is identical with that held four years ago by Hitchcock when he was chief assistant to Chairman Cor telyou. " Hitchcock intends to direct the work In all parts of the countrv, but will name a vice chairman later who will be in charge at Chicago when Hitch cock is not there. The headquarters of Secretary Dov er wiil also be In Chicago. Hitchcock today conferred with Wil liam K. Ward, member of the commit tee from New York, but the national chairman declined to be drawn into an expression of opinion concerning the nomination that should be made for thp governorship of the state. The general impression is that the federal administration would be opposed to turning down Governor Hughes for a second term. Hitchcock holds the same view, but he refused to discuss the question with any one. It is believed here. In the alienee of some statement showing some other preference of Roosevelt or Taft Hughes will be able to carry the coming state convention. Hitchcock" is placing de pendence in that assumption 'that there will be no expressed preference. THE HENEY INDICTMENTS GOING BY THE BOARD Eighteen of the Oregon Land Fraud Bills Dismissed. Portland, Aug. 3. The eighteen so called "Heney indictments" In connec tion with the land frauds alleged to have been committed in this state, were dismissed today by the govern ment. The others it is stated would also be dismissed, but for the fact that some of those indicted are con nected with cases of ex-Congressmen Binger Hermann, and J. N. William son. It Is expected that finally very few others than those affecting the ex congressmen will come to trial. Previous to the dismissing of the Indictments today, Dr. W. L. Davis, former mayor of Alliance, after an in dictment charging him with perjury had been withdrawn, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the government of public land and was fined $500. In passing sentence Judge Wolverton said it appeared that the defendant acted hastily, rather than with a corrupt in tent to evade the law. Clark E. Looinis, another defendant entered a plea of guilty. Sentence Was suspended pending the trial of subse quent cases. o- AT HIS OLD TRICKS JAILED ON SUSPICION Two Indians and a Former Convict Now in City Jail. Pasqual Garcia, who .'.has served one term in Yuma for selling liquor to Indians, is again facing ' towards the pen for giving Indians booze, that is if the Indian witness does not change his mind over night and tell a different story in the morning. Marshal More was informed yes terday afternoon' of the presence of two redskins who were laboring un der too heavy a load of firewater, one being perched on a pony and the other making efforts to disem bark from a buggy at the city hall plaza. One of the Indians was found and placed in the cellar, and an officer placed on the watch by the buggy for the other one. A Mexican Indian came up to the buggy as if to take charge and he was arrested. But he turned out to be Pasqual, the purveyor of joyful juice to the red man, and he was put away in a ce"l on suspicion for that is the chief art of detection, says "Sheerluck" Holmes. Shortly afterwards an Indian stroll ed in ami asked if his friend had been jailed and Marshal Moore en gaged him in conversation about his own state of well leing and the In dian finally admitted that he had had a few swallows but not enough to make a spring. The marshal in truded the detective auger further and the Indian told him he had se cured the liquor he had imbibed from Piisquel Garcia. All three are now in duress vile waiting developments and the passing effects of the jag. It Is feared the testifier to Pasqual's wrong doing may not be so commun icative when his statement is really needed. o A SIMPLE TRANSACT GOULD-HARRIMAN DEAL Found to be of Less Importance to the Market Than Was Supposed. New York, Aug. 3. Leaders of the stock market movement rely more on the Monday market to show how much response to their leadership has been attracted from the world outside of Wall street, than any other Index. The violence of the upturn of the wheat market magnified the influence of re ports of damage to spring wheat. E. II. Harriman's own description of the Wheeling and Lake Erie note settle ment that it was simply a financial transaction necessary to save the rail road anil thereby benefit all of them alike, took some glamour off the In ferences widely drawn from the inci dent in last week's speculative sur mises. Copper raised again and the report that the B. & O. had placed large rail order aroused hopes hither to dormant that the steel trade was to revive. Bonds were steady. STOCKS.

Adams St Phone 1490 A PLUNGE TO IN AN Five Victims of a Tragedy. Near game, Gal. Yesterday The Brakes Manipulated Way ami the Machine Sheer Embankment. Snn Francisco, Aug. 4. Coming down a steep grade in the hills west of Burlingamejit high speed, an auto mobile driven by Miss Ethel McCor mick, and occupied by four other wo men and two children, all of San Mateo, suddenly swerved from the road as a result of broken brakes, anil plunged straight down the em bankment, causing the death of three of the women and two children, and injuring the other two. The victims of the tragedy, the sec ond disastrous accident of the kind near San Francisco within forty-eight hours, were: Mrs. Thomas A. McCor mick. Miss Clara McCormick, Miss F.thel McCormick, Mrs. Ira G. O'Brien, Robert ( "'linen, aged eight months: Ira O'Brien, aged three years, and Miss II McC'auley of 'San Francisco. Of the seven occupants of the large tonneaii, the only two alive are Miss McCaulay. having both arms broken. nnd Miss Ethel McCormick. the driver, who escaped with a sprained ankle and some bruises. The partv was returning to their homes in San Mateo after having vis ited the country place of Prince Andre Poniatowski. near Crystal Springs lake. Miss Ethel McCormick, 20 years of age. who has often driven her fath er's big car, was acting as chauffeur. All went well until a point two miles west of BurHngame was reached. There the upper of two roads Is mark ed by a steep grade. The lower road is a sheer drop of fifty feet down. The car turned down the hill at a sharp clip and the young woman at the wheel sought to check the speed by applying the fiot brake. Finding that it did not work and that the automobile was gaining a dangerous headway, she hastily threw on the emergency brakes. They snap ped almost immediately. Fearing that she could not guide the huge car in safety to the bottom of the grade, be cause of the rapidly accelerating speed and sharp turn in the road close to Comiick endeavored to run close to the embankment on the upper side, hoping that the friction of the wheels would have the effect of gradually forcing the car to slacken speed until she could again gain control. 320 Acres 2 miles fromTempe, 200 acres in Alfalfa, all fenced and crossfenced, 6 room brick house.

Lincoln, Xeb., Aug. 2. Xo Inci dent worthy of note marked the day at FairView tmlay. Only a few call ers journeyed out in the sweltering heat and these, for the most part came merely to pay their respects. Attorney General Bonaparte's opin ion that the national banks cannot comply with Oklahoma's state law with respect to the guaranty of de posits, is the subject in which Mr. Bryan is vitally interested and it is presumed that he -will make it one of the leading issues of the cam paign. Already he has decided to make it the feature of his Topeka speech the latter part of the month. Mr. Bryan was not advised of the causes which yesterday prevented his unanimous election as a member of the typographical union at Lincoln, along with Governor Sheldon and ht is disinclined to discuss the matter. It is said tonight tliat trade reasons and a desire to obviate politics ani mated the oppositon. uiiiHuiniiiuiiuiiiiunrnnrniniinnira 80.; ACRESf 5 Two miles West of Glendale, 35 1 acres in alfalfa, all in cultiva- tion, good im- p r overa ents.
