Mines. instant death of between
125 and 150 miners. Not a
single person escaped. Tlia disaster is
the worst in the annals of British On
lembia coal mining, except that of Wel
lington, 18 years ago, by which 157
lives were lost. Immediately after the
explosion a ca 1 for help was Bent to
Fernie, and the foremost of the reecue
party that responded was overcome by
the after damp, and his life was only
saved by the timely arrival of comrades.
In the work of leocue the miners mide
hproic sacriQi'es. The tunnels in which
the disaster occurred were very long and
badly ventilated. The mines are only
six miles from Fernie, a town in the
Eastern part of the province of British

branch of the Canadian Pacific railway.
It lies in the center of a country very
rich in coal deposits. The building of
the railway four years ago, was followed

Sentenced, three years in the state
penitentiary by Judgn
Hamilton, of Roseburg. Granelli was
23 years uld. In company with a youth
ful companion, Thomas Arnold, Gra
nelli was beating his way northward,
and on the previaus Sunday morning
was put off a train near Rice hill. The
boys went on over the hill and placed
cittie guard rail, a heavy piece of iron
and a block of wood on a curve section
of track. The obstructions stood in
such a way as to have had the effeet of
throwing any passing train into the
deep gulch below. As President Har
riman's train was due soon afterward
the lection crew was especially vigilant
and consequently discovered and re
moved the obstructions before the ar
rival of the train. The two young men
were arrested by the chief of police of
Forest Grove. The younger of the two
boys, Arnold, aged 17, turned state's
evidence, and was let off with a 60-days
sentence in the county jail.
