Tho most dreadful conflagration In
tho history of Canada Is aweeplng
the Elk river vaKey In East Kooten-
ay. Kor forty miles a tremendous
bush flro hat burned everything bo
fore It. It has-held full and terrible
sway since Saturday afternoon, l-at-est
estimates are that 170 people
have met death In the flames. The
property loss It estimated at $3,000,
000 to $10,000,000. The following
places have been destroyed:
Fcrnle, with a population of 3,500,
Coal Creek, with a population of
1,500, Hosmcr, with a population of
no. The homeless will number COOO.
The fatalities are growing hourly.
In one caso at Fernle every ono In
five families perished. At least 70
persons perished there. Seventy men
In Elk river camps perished. The
Crows Nest Pans Coal company hat
11.000.000 In property at Coal Creek
which It reported destroyed. Rail
road bridges are swept away. Tho
fire Is still burning.
A territory 100 miles squaro had
been burned over. The wboln Crows

Impossible In any direction. Flro ap

spread with lightning rapidity.

Realizing that when Francis Jos
eph, the aged and Infirm emperor of
Austria, dies, tho political balance or
Europe Is likely to bo rudely upset,
the European nations arc today keep
ing a "death wutch" on tho emperor.
They have not gono to I ho limit of
Turkey, who had a secret service
agent shadowing the emperor at
ischl, bit summer homo Uut' what
the sultan attempted to do openly,
tho other powers are doing with sec
recy and with regard to the emper
or's feelings. The keynote to the
prestnt European situation It tho
half open, half veiled antagonism-between
England and Germany. Eng
land Is muttering every possible pow
er to maintain her predominance
and Germany It striving to obstruct
thlt policy and to gain tho position
England now holds. France, Russia
and Spain aro friendly' to England,
and it Is believed that In (be event of
a crisis, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden,
Norway, and even, Italy could be won
to the English' aide.
A general exodus of ArmenlniiH
from this country to their native
lands Is expected as the testill of the
edict of the sultan of Turkey grant
ing autonomy to Armenia and re
mitting all penalties nnd liabilities
for attempts made by Armenians In
the past to get such government nnd
the right to testify In a Moslem court
Chicago's Armenian colony Is greatl)
excited and for several das ine.tlim
have been held dlscusslnr; the advis
ability of returning to Armenia. Ik
cause of the vigor with which the
sultan pursued Armenians who had
sought autonomy, SSO.OOO rame to
the United States to escape Imprison
ment. They organized tho I lunch
klst society to obtain funds to fight
for their cause. Whether the new-
edict will mean the abandonment of
this society la problematical.
