Awful Havoc of Earth?

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.

HER HEART
WAS BROKEN
Sister Followed Her Dearly
Loved Brother to Grave.
ARE BURIED SIDE BY SIDE
Raymond and Emma Jennings Pass
Away Within a Few Hours of Each
Other?The Relatives Are
Heartbroken.
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

First Wlth.Crano and Then as an In?
dividual Star, and Always to

(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.

KING EDWARD
VISITS POPE
Received at the Vatican With
Great Cordiality.
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. The King returned to the
?British Embussy.

CAMPBELL
CASE MAY
BERRIED
Two Reports Presented,
by the Committee.
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."
Append*'?! to the Mcllwalno report Is
? concurrent resolution, tho adoption of
which |s recommended. This eonourrt-nt
resolution provides for n Joint commlt
toe of' flv?? members on the part of thu
Senate awl live members on the pnrt of
