A HUNDRED AND TWELVE MEET DEATH Thousands of Tons of Earth Are Hurled Down. MINERS ARE ENTOMBED BEYOND HOPE OF RESCUE Tha River, Dammed by the Falling Earth, R?eos and Threatens to En? gulf the Little Mining Town of Franklin British Columbia, Houses Are Crushed and Many Killed. (By Associated ????.) VANCOUVER, B. C., April 29.?Over? whelmed by countless tons of rooks this morning; shortly after 4 o'clock, and with probably 112! of Its Inhabitants killed almost Instantly, Iho Httlo mining town of Frank, In Southwestern Alberta, lo threatened with completo destruction by flood to-night. Old Man's River, which flows through the center of tho town, In damned up by the fallen rocks to the height of nearly one hundred tootj nnd the entire valley above-tha town Is flooded for miles. ' A big body of water Is pressing with force upon the dam, the only protection the town of Frank now has, unless the river shall find nnother channel. Should tho Impromptu dam break the ?ntlre villoso would be swept away. A dispatch from Frank says: "? tremendously loud 'reverberation shook the whole valley of the Old Man's River nt 4:10 o'clock, and scarcely half the Inhabitant?, of tills town awok? to the Impending danger, when Turtle Moun? tain, opened and' thousands?-? of-.-tons of rocks were hurled upon the town. The mouth of tho Frank mino and many houses seemed to fbe burled hundreds of feet under tho rocks, which were still being precipitated from tho lofty moun? tain. The volunteer force were unable to get Into the mine, but got near enoush t? ascertain that not a man In the mine had escaped death. Mnny of the miners had been fearfully mangled. Tho disas? ter was merciful to those men who were employed above ground, as they must have been killed instantly, while some of those men In. the'workings of the mine may yet bo alive If they have air to breathe. The air-shafts In the mines were closed up by that avalanche and nil tho mon must have died from suf? focation. > '. ' HOUSES CRUSHED: MANY KILLED. The disaster was not confined to the vi? cinity of the mine, as many houses In the town wero crushed to pieces and Inmates killed. A conservative estimate Is that the loss of life will exceed 10O, while other returns place tho dead at 112. It la dif? ficult to ascertain the exact loss of life, as owing? to tho excitement and rush of p?oplo on the streets no one could say who is missing and who Is not. There are no records available that will tell ' how many men wero working In and j about tho mine at the time of the disas? ter. It Is variously reported thnt there were from eighteen to fifty miners undor ground. It Is known thnt many women nnd children have , suffered death, but Just how many It Is' Impossible to tell at present. TOP OF MOUNTAIN SLIPPED. When reports concerning tho magnitude of the disaster and details concerning It commenced to come In from reliable men who had boon out prospecting for news, It was discovered that the earth opened for three-quarters of a mile and many feot In width, and the whole north? ern face of Turtlo Mountain slipped from its place. The shock, resultant upon the precipitation of tho millions of tons of roe Into the valley, while only actually demol? ishing comparatively fow of tho houses, shook tho foundations of *a majority of the dwellings In tho town, so that they are unsafe to live In, and mnny hundreds ot peoplo will have to live in the open or under suoh temporary shelter as may bo procurable.

Whllo her little brother, Raymond, war slowly . sinking In the room adjoining, Emma Jennings, aged fifteen, was sud donly seized with an attack of porltonltls early Tuesday morning, and twelve hours later, only a short time after the lad had passed to the great beyond, tho child succumbed to ? tho dread malady. And yesterday the remains of the young ones wore taken to Powhatan county, where they were interred side by side In the family burying ground. The chlldre; were orphans and lived with their brother, Robert Jennings, No. 903y?j West Marshall Street. CAUSED BY ORIEF. The sudden death of little Miss Emma Is said to have been partially, If not wholly, attributable to the serious con? dition of the brother, In whom she was deeply Interested, and over whom she constantly worried. Together ?he two deaths, happening as they did .'within a few hours of each other, the last so sud? den, forms one of the saddest Incidents recorded In Richmond In a number of years, and the Immediate rotatives of the deceased tots have been condoled on all sides by their numerous friends and ac? quaintances. Th>-y are hcart-brokon ovo: the disaster. Raymond, the first of the children to be removed by death, had been 111 for prob? ably three weeks, first being stricken with the measles. This was cured, imme? diately after which the lad was taken with peritonitis, appendicitis and pneu? monia, the combination of diseases rap? idly ontlng away his vitality. While hr was abed, Emma, the fond sister, seemed neart-broken. A SUDDEN ATTACK. As his condition grew worse her spir? its waned, but she stili continued to per? form her duties atout the house as usual. Monday, night she retired and apparently she was as well as, ever, and as the hours'slipped by no sound save the heavy breathing of the dying.boy was to be heard by those who sat up with him. The girl was In the room adjoining and there was a door between. Shortly after 5 o'clock the elder sister of the now deceased children overheard a gurgling sound In th-e sleeping apart? ment adjoining the sick room. She hast? ened to Investigate, and iuund little Emma, the child who had retired well nnd hearty the nltfht previous, uncon? scious and seemingly dying. She called a physician, nnd the child was brought around all right by noon. But in _the meantime Raymond had grown much worse, and at 12:20 he died. F.nvma was apprised of this fact, and a' swooned Immediately, never regaining consciousness. At 5:20, five hours after her brother had passed away, her spirit; also, took flight.

ROBSON DIES IN NEW YORK Well-Known Actor Passes Away After Short Illness. WAS VERY POPULAR HERE Had Played in Richmond Many Years, First Wlth.Crano and Then as an In? dividual Star, and Always to Big Houses. (By AMOelatod Pre??.) NEW YORK, April 2U.-ytuart Rob Bon, the veteran comedian, died to-night of heart diseuse at tho Hotel Savoy. He was slxty-soven years of age, and had been on the stage for fifty-one years. Mr. Robson was tuken ill early In March, and was obliged to rest com? pletely for' two a>e?ks. Ho resumed his engagement on March 10th, and after playing in Now York and Brooklyn, ap? peared In various towns.? in the upper part of this State. A few days ago he was taken III In Auburn, N, Y., and was then brought to this city. Tho Interment will take place at Co hassott, Mass., on Friday. In Richmond, with t'ne singlo exception of Joreph Jefferson, there was probably no more popular comedian on the stage than Stuart Robson. He first appeared here with William H. 'Crane at tho Rich? mond Theatre in. 1884, producing The Two Dromlos. The two comedians, under the firm name of Robson and Crane starred together for many seasons. The announcement that 'llobson nnd Crane were to appear was sufficient to pack the theatre to the doors. This partnership continued until some years ago, when for business reasons the comedians sep? arated and appeared as Independent stars. The best part that Robson ever plnyed was. Bertie, the Lamb. In The Henrietta. Ho was admirably suited to the part nn account of his peculiar mannerisms, and his tricks of voice, to both of which ho owed most of his success as a comedian. These wero a part of the comedian him? self, and no matter what tho role might be, they entered into It. While the- comedian was, probably best known through his Impersonations In The Two Dromlos and The Henrietta, he had appeared here In many other pieces, among which were "Our Bachelors," "The Jucklins," "Oliver Goldsmith" and "She Stoops to Conquer," Mr. Robson had spent over half a cen? tury upon the stage.

TOGETHER FOR SOME TIME The Pontiff and England's Sovereign Talk for Some Time, and Their Parting Words Are Cordial. Both Are Pleased. (By Associated Press.) ROME, April 29.?King Edward visited Pope Leo at the Vatican this afternoon, going dlroct from the British Embassy In a closed carriage. Ho wus accompa? nied by Colonel Lamb,' the British mili? tary attncho. Tho carriage bearing the Fing was followed by another containing members of His Majesty's suite; ' People gathered on the streets and looked on' with curiosity, but they abstained from any demonstration. .It.was also remarked that, contrary to the usual etiquette, King Edward did not lunch at tho British Embassy, but.had lunchoon at the Qulrlnal, and, after a brief stop at the embassy, drove to the Vatican. Thus far did King Edward give way to the Vatican desires. Tho carriage In which the King drove to tho Vatican did not belong to the Qulrlnal, as a? carriage of the King o? Italy could not get within the precincts of the Apostolic palace. WITH CEREMONY. The Vatican Is perhaps the most cere? monious of Europe, it Is undoubtedly one of the moat picturesque, and all coa turnes worn there are of medieval times. As King Edward's carriegos, at twenty minutes past 4, entered the Court at San D?maso, surrounded ; by the well known logglo of Raphael, and which has been trodden by the feet of every sove? reign who visited Rome, with the excep? tion'of the present Sllah of Persia, His Majesty was saluted by a battalion of the ' Palatine Guards, In full uniform. Tattoo was ?Ivon on the drum heads; there was no music, as. there aro no Papal .bands. . When tho royal party reached the grand staircase leading to the. Papal apartments, King Edward was greeted by tho Marquis Saohottl, who acted for ;Prliico Ruspollj the lntrpdiicer of sove? reigns, '..who is 111;' Monsignor!'Merry del Val and Prince Airtici-Mnttol, At thu upper landing there wns grouped In Im? posing array a number qt other eccle? siastics, who formed a characteristic and ' magnificent assembly.' Behind this group, attired In brilliant uniforms, wero tho Knights of the Cape nnd chamber? lains In black velvet breeches, blouses with stiff white ruffs and gorgeously jew-: oled chains about tholr necks, giving a touch of brilliant color to the scene. GIVEN MILITARY HONORS. King Edward addressed a few words of kindly, thanks In return for the hearty greetings offered him. Upon arrivimi' be-" foro the private apartments of the Pope, tho Noble Guard rendered military hon? ors to the British'Sovereign. At the conclusion of this coromony tho door of tho Pope's apartments was im? mediately open?Jd and the aged Pontiff was revealed standing at the threshold. Ills hand was extended, awaiting Ills guest. His Holiness was dressed In robes of white and a rod velvet cape bordored with ormino. Even King Edward paused a moment upon seeing the Pontiff In his white garments. The Pope's face was the color ot Ivory, but ho moved without aid and with no apparent difficulty. From his entire person thore soemed to ema? nate sentiments of benevolence and spir? itual grace. The King and Pope clasped hands and exchanged n.fow words in French. King Edward passed within the papal apartment, ?the door was closed and tho Popo and his guost was left alone. HURRAH FOR THE KING,. King Edwnrd with the Pontiff for twen? ty minutes. A bell was then rung and King Edward's suite was admitted and presented to the Pope. This little cere? mony seemed to please the Pope Im? mensely. At Its conclusion King Edwnrd took his lonve, tho Popo crosslgg the room nt his side and saying his last words at the door. , From the Vatican, King Edwnrd passed through the Pinza of St. Peter, whore ho was warmly groeted In English by a number of Scotch pllgrlmn now In Rome, who shouted. "Hurrah for the King." Had King Edwnrd looked up at that mo? ment ho would hnvo aoeo a figure at a window on the second story of the palace. It was Popo I.oo. Constrated with the King, who stood among the scene of animation on the Plaza, the solitary white figuro at. tho window seemed to aceontuiito tho Impression nf the Pope' ns a prisoner.

ONE UPHOLDING ACTION ?OF HOUSE - -F? The Other Takes Issue With* it on Every Point. CHAIRMAN M ?LWAINE FAVORS A --.REOPENING. Concurrent Resolution Providing for the Appointment of a. Joint Com? mittee?Senate to Consider the Two Reports on Wednes? day Next ? The Two Reports In Full. : The case of Judge C. J. Campbell, the County Court of Amhorst, efforts to ' remove whom havo been engaging the attention of the General Assembly for several months, now seems little nearer conclusion than three months ago. In fact, If a resolution offered In the Senate yesterday, accompanying the re? port of Chairman Mcllwalno and five other members o? the Committee for Courts of Justice, bo adopted, the entire trial of the judge on charges alleging causes for his removal will have to bo had over agiiln. Another report offered and signed by six members of the sama committee, takes the position that the ? testimony already taken le sufficient, . and that It Is now In order for the Senate ' to concur In the action ot the House as embodied In the joint resolution removing the judgo from office. Tho legal, quee-' t'.ons Involved In tho < conflicting reporta and recommendations of the comniltteo ?must be fought out on. the'floor Of the' Senate. An Even Split. The Senate Committee for Courts of Justice, to which the case was referred,' Is badly divided as to the proper proce-' dura in the case, six members signing one report and six others another. Judgo Mann, the thirteenth member of thu committee, is not participating In thu committee deliberations, having boenti witness before the House Committee. Tho committee was required, under the resolution of reference, to report, first, as io tho legal status.of the case; second, their conclusions upon the evidence taken and printed In the caus?. . Messrs. Cogbill, Bruco, Byars, Sears, Harman and Walker slgn~-a' report In whloli It la stated: ?I) That the proceed? ings heretofore had In the Campbell case have boon In substantial compliance with the requirements of the Constitution and In nccord with precedents. (2) That tho stenographic report of the testimony taken by the House Commit? tee contains tho eyidonce, and all tho evi? dence, which should bo considers by the Senate In Its action on the Joint resolu? tion of removal. (!)) Tho signers refrain from express? ing their conclusions upon the evidence. The other report, whloh Is signed by Mr. Mellwnlne, chairman of lh,e commit? tee, and by Messrs. Harvey, Ople, "Wat kins and Brynnt, nnd (with a reserva? tion) by Mr. Whltehead, Is a typewritten document, of nine pnges, reviewing tho. procedure of the Gonoral Assembly In the case, quoting section 104 of tho Constitu? tion, and roachlng, after argument, sub? stantially these conclusions: (1) That nn opportunity of defense has not been afforded Judge Campbell In theio nroreedlncrs, riftor the notice had bp,-n served, upon him. ? (2) Judge Campbell lias hart no oppor? tunity to bo heard on the third charge, fixing the causoa for removal, which was ninde by tho Investigating committee In Its report to the House after the taktne of evidence had been concluded. (.1) Tho testimony tnken by the House Commttteo cannot be used as legal ovl rtenco to sustain tho formal charges set forth ns causea for removal of Judge Campbell In tho conmirrnnt resolution of ' the two houses. (?I) The onuses for removal (not the nlleged causes) have not beten epraftd upon the Journal of tho House, although It hns passed the concurrent resolution now before the S<*nnte. Plnnlly, the signers refrain from ex? pressing any conclusions In regard to the ease, not dooming the printed testimony before the Houso Committee legal evi? dence |n this proceeding against Judgo Cnmptmii under the Constitution. Mr. Whltchend concurs In thla report, except that he Is not prepni*?rt to any thnt "the testimony tnken before the In?? vestlgutlng commltteo of the House of Delegates la not legal evidence."
