ALL BELIEVED TO BE DEAD Even If The Men Escaped The Fire, It Is Believed That They Were Killed By Poisonous Fumes” Or By Falling Debris. Calgary Alberta. —A mighty explo sion Friday entombed 250 miners em ployed in Mine No. 20 of the Hillcrest Collieries Ltd. Of the 50 miners res cued only 14 were living Friday night. The effects of the disaster were: Men in mine when explosion oc curred, 600, of whom 350 escaped. Number rescued, 50, of whom 36 died later. Miners still entombed, 200, probably perished by fire which followed the ex plosion. The explosion, which occurred about 8 a. m., shook the country side for miles around, lifted the roofs from many miners’ cabins and demolished numerous small buildings. A moment after the explosion a score of panic stricken surface workers rushed from the mine, followed by a dense cloud of smoke and poisonous fumes. Appeals for help were dispatched to many towns and in the meantime resi dents organized an emergency crew and began the work of rescue. When the first rescue crew arrived a large force of men Set about to clear the shaft, working desperately as the moans of the entombed men came fee bly from the mine. The moans became fainter and finally ceased. Thousands of tons of rock have fallen into the mine, and it is feared that the men, even had they escaped death from the poisonous fumes, probably were crush ed to death by the falling debris. No information as to what caused the explosion has been given, but it is believed it was due to the forming of gasses. Thomas Quigley, superintendent of the mine, is among those entombed. Fire broke out soon after the explo sion, but almost immediately died out, although the gas fumes made It im possible for the men to work effective ly for several hours. The explosion tore out both ends of the pit and blocked the interior of the workings, making it almost impossible to gain entrance. Most of the miners were working about 400 feet inside the mine. A majority of the men are foreign born, but a large number of them are English-speaking. WILSON FOR CHURCH UNITY. Writes Sympathy In Movement To Rev. W. H. Roberts.

VILLA PREPARING TOLEUD FIGHT All Friction With Carranza is Smoothed Out. MANY PETTY ANNOYANCES Will Head Assault On Zacatecas In Person —Is Confining Attention To Army and Not Meddling With Mediation. Torreon, Mexico. —General Villa, all friction between him and Provisional President Carranza having been smoothed out, is preparing actively to lead the Constitutionalist forces against Zacatecas. So far as Villa is concerned, Gen eral Carranza is still first chief of the Constitutionalists. There is no unsur mountable differences between the two men. Villa’s friends declare. They summed up the situation as follows: “Being human, General Carranza and General Villa at times have diverse general opinions as to the plans to be pursued to secure the best results un der certain conditions, but in the past have striven each to meet the other half way in order to reach an agree ment having for its object the advance ment of the principles of the revolu tion. “The seizure by Villa’s officers of the government posts at Juarez and other points was explained by his ad herents as follows: “In order to do away with petty an noyances which might grow to such : magnitude as to become evils it was deemed wise to place in public office throughout the State of Chihuahua, at least, men of one following. The at- i tempt to divide the official duties be- : tween partisans of General Carranza and General Villa proved a failure in practice, regardless of what it might : have been in theory, and it was i thought best to change the system for the advancement and betterment of the public service. The change affects but very few minor positions and has no special significance.” Reports that Villa has notified the : mediators at Niagara Falls that he is < ready to send a commission to confer : with them, and that as a condition he : will insist upon the naming of General Felipe Angeles as provisional presi dent are untrue. Villa regards the mediation negotiations as a matter of diplomacy, and has taken no more active interest in them than to follow their course closely. He is very frie.ndly with General Angeles and re gards him as well fitted for the presi dency, but has taken no steps to sug gest him for the position. EUGENICS LAW UPHELD.

[LINER RAMMED BYJREIGHTEfI Kaiser Wilhelm Collides With Incemore. FOG AGAIN HELD TO BLAME. No Communication Allowed With the Big Lloyd Liner, Which Now Lies At Anchor With a Big Hole In Her Side. Southampton, England.—The North German Lloyd steamer Kaiser Wilhelm 11., which left Southampton shortly after noon Wednesday bound for New York with a thousand passengers, lies at anchor off Netley, three miles to the southeast, with a big hole in her side amidship, caused by a collision with , the Liverpool grain steamer Incemore, bound from a Black Sea port for Ant werp. The Incemore, a much smaller craft than the German steamer of 3,000-odd tons, is in dock here with her bows badly smashed. The collision occurred in the English Channel, thirteen miles south of the Nab Lightship, in a dense fog. Just how it occurred and on which vessel • lies the responsibility cannot be ascer tained at present. The officers of the Kaiser Wilhelm 11. have permitted no communication to be held with anyone on board and they themselves refuse to give out any information. Such scant details as have been obtained came from the Incemore. That vessel, it is stated by those on board, had vir tually come to a stop because of the danger of continuing under way in such a thick fog, when suddenly there loomed up just ahead of her the huge hulk of the Kaiser Wilhelm. Both captains did their best to avert ! a collision, but the short distance sep i aratlng the two vessels rendered their efforts ineffectual and the Incemore , struck the liner on the starboard side i amidship. The force of the impact crumpled up her own bows and tore a ; big gap in the Kaiser Wilhelm’s side. The two steamers stood by each other until it was ascertained that i neither needed immediate assistance; then both started slowly for South i ampton. The forepeak of the Ince more rapidly filled with water, but the . stout bulkhead confined it there, and, although so much down by the bows i that the propeller was half out of the i water, she managed to crawl into port. . There it was found that the damage to the bows extended for a length of twelve feet and a width of ten feet. AN EIGHT-NATION NAVY. Peace Plan Provides For International Warships.

NINE DEAD IN AERIAL CRASH I Both Craft Destroyed and Men Mutilated. CROWDS WITNESS HORROR While Engaged in Military Aerial Man euvers at a Great Height the Bi plane’s Nose Cuts Envelope Of a Big Dirigible. Vienna.—Nine terribly-burned and mutilated bodies, the splintered frag ments of an aeroplane and the charred remnants of a big dirigible balloon are the mute records of one of the most tragic, certainly the most sen sational, disasters which have oc curred since man learned to fly. The catastrophe, which resulted in the ' death of all concerned, followed a mimic attack by the aeroplane on the ' dirigible at a great height during the Austrian Army maneuvers, and it serves to show, more than any pre vious accidents to flying machines have done, the horrors that would be likely to attend aerial warfare. The dirigible military balloon Koert ling left Fischamend, a market town, 11 miles from Vienna, at 8 o’clock. She was manned by Captain Johaan Hauswirth, in command; Lieu-tenant Ernst Hofstette, Lieutenant Bruer, Lieutenant Hadinger, Corporal Had ima, Corporal Weber and Engineer Kammerer. At the lapse of half an hour a mili tary aeroplane of the biplane type, with Lieutenant Flatz aboard, started in pursuit. Sham Fight Expected. It was the intention of Captain Hauswirth to take photographs of the movements of the troops below, and then to join in the maneuvers. At the same time he was to keep out of range of any of the mosquito craft which might seek to attack him, . The news had gone abroad that something in the nature of a sham aerial fight would take place and at Konigsberg, the scene of the engage ment, a big crowd had gathered. Very quickly the smaller, but much speed ier, craft overtook the big airship and then the spectators witnessed a thrilling sight. As might a wasp bent on attacking „ some clumsy enemy, the aeroplane circled several times around the bal loon, now darting close to her and then away, always apparently steering off just in time to avoid an actual col lision. Meanwhile, the balloon continued to rise until it was about 1,300 feet from the ground. The aeroplane, at a still greater height maneuvered until it ap peared to be nearly over the airship. Then it began its descent. It was the evident intention of the pilot of the aeroplane to take up a position directly above the dirigible, within striking distance, but, owing either to a fatal miscalculation of the distance separating the two craft, or of speed, the nose of the biplane struck the envelope of the airship and ripped it wide open. The Balloon Bursts. A tremendous explosion followed; the balloon burst into flames, which enveloped the biplane, and in a mo ment the wreckage began to drop, crashing at length like lead to the slope of a hill. The envelope of the balloon was still burning when it struck the ground. Lieutenant Hatz, when ex tricated from the wreckage of the aeroplane, showed faint signs of life; his body quivered and he seemed to be making an effort to raise himself, but almost immediately he expired. All the other aviators were killed in stantly. According to some experts, the ca tastrophe seemingly was caused by the aeroplane being caught in the ed dies from the balloon. They attribute the accident to a species of whirl wind caused by the airship’s propel ler, which drew in the smaller ma chine. TAKEN FROM LOST SHIP.
