Twenty-Three Kftown Dead and More
Than Fifteen InJurted and Missing
as Result of On-Bushing Waters.
Vancouver, B. C., Oct. 30.-Twenty
three persons are known to be dead,
thirteen and perhaps more are missing
and fifteen are nursing injuries as a
result of the disastrous flood which
plunged down a steep -mountain side
Friday night and transformed the
model copper mining settlement of
Britannia Beach into a scene of deso
lation and ruin.
Fully half of the 100 neat, freshly
painted cottages were carried away on
the crest of the flood. Others were
smashed to pieces by the force of the
on-rushing waters and most of the
remainder were still partially sub
merged tonight.
Four children are dead and ton
others are reported to be missing.
Ten of the dead and all of the in
jured were -brought to Vancouver last
evening on the steamer Capitano. All
the injured are expected to recover.
An energetic search for the miss
ing was made today but the work was
necessarily slow because of the dif
ficultics in clearing away the wreck
age in the sea of mud and water. It
is considered doubtful if the bodies of
some of the missing will ever be re
covered as they are believed to have
been washed into the' muddy waters
of Howe Sound.
aManager J. ODonahue, of the 'Bri
tania mines tonight described the ef
forts made by those on duty at the
mines .property, three miles back
from the beach, to warn the residents
of the danger. When the railway
fill, which caused the accumulation
of water in the hills, gave iway and
released a roaring torrent into the
creek, a warning of the disaster to
come was sent .over the private tele
phone line of the mines. This mes
sage was received by Miss Ellen Pat
terson, telephone operator on duty at
the compressor 1plant in the village.
'She promptly rang everybody coa
nected by telephone, relaying the
miners' message: "For God's sake get
out of your houses; flood coming
down the creek."
Before the warning could be un
derstood and circulated about the
town, the waters crashed down the
mountain side sweeping away trans
mission lines and 'plunging the vil
lage into darkness.
The waters had fallen 2,000 feet in
their three-mile journey down the
mountain and smashed ,straight
through the center of the settlement.

village Itself which is under several
feet of water, strewn with timber,
