CANADIAN fOWN COMPLEJEIV, DESTROYED
BY TERRIBLE ROCKSLIDE
Top of Turtle Mountain Pours Down Upon Town of Frank, Crushing
\
Houses As Egg Shells and Mashing People Into Mincemeat.
Over 100 Lives Lost and an Unknown Number Injured
[S|>ecial Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
Cranhrook, B. April 30. -A ter
rible rock slide from Turtle mountain
completely demolished the little coal
mining town of bYank, just across the
line in Alberto, ut 4 o'clock yesterday
morning. More than one hundred
lives ? ere crushed out and an unknown
ihiiuIht were injured.
The whole top of Turtle mountain
seemed to In- lifted oil as if l>y an earth
quake or by a terrible eruption, and
van hurled down u|>on the top of
the little city which nestled close lo
the foot of the mountain. The rocks
and ImuUlers poured down the mountain
side, crushing houses as though they
were ej?K shells and mashing the panic
stricken population into mince meat.
A larjre number of coal miners have
been entombed in the side of the niouii
tain, 'the great rotas of rock having
closed the mouth of the tuupeU and
shaft*. Seventeen of them have thus
far been recovered.
Kolief has been sent to the .stricken
community in the way of iumi to help
with the reacue work, mirse* and
physicians to minister to t lie wounded
and dying, and provisions for those who
were fortunate enough to escape the
terrible fate which overtook so large a
proportion of the little city's |M>pu
1 at ion.
All last night and all of toiluy the
work of recovering the dead and the
wounded from the treifienduou* mass of
wreckage has progressed. The res
cuers have worked without intermis
sion ever since the frightful death-deal
ing avalanche swept down upon and
over the (own, .'Mi hours ago. and ull
tbe ground has not .vet been worked
ofer, though the lov, of life la known
10 exceed 100.
The scenes t hat are l>eing enacted
upon the disordered site where law
fully li vetl a thriving and contented
half thousand people 48 hours ago, are
sad beyond description. There has
IxJen found scarcely a survivor from the
terrible wreck who has not lost one
or more members of his immediate
family, and all have lost friends by the
score. In many instances whole fam
ilies have been wi|>ed out of existence.
Frank was a town of about .000 souls,
situated on the Crow's Nest branch of
the Canadian Pacific railroad, just
across the eastern line of British Co
lumbia, In Alberta. Itjluts been abso
lutely destroyed.
