the Cook Creek district, during the
past few days, is still out of reach.
It took a southwest course, up -what
is known as Gerd's canyon, nd is
burning at a furious rate. It has at
present destroyed 10,000 acres of
voung lumber. Charles F. Williams,
the proprietor of the Palmer Lake

Cooper last evening, stating that he
had ordered the first commissioner,
to give this fire his immediate atten

As mentioned in these dispatches, the
most serious fire is near Boulder, Col

Caii-e of the Wreck of the ' Sardonyx."
On Friday, June 13th. about 130 r.
jr., the C. P. steamship Sardonyx Avas
proceeding on her way from Port
Simpson to Skidegate under full head
of steam, and when within thirty-six
miles of there she suddenly brought
up on what is Imown as White Cliff
shoal, off Gorham island. She was
about one and a hale miles from shore.
She at once commenced to fill, and
captain Smith, after making an exam
ination of the ship, and viewing the
position she was in as a very danger
ous one should the wind spring up,
decided tho best thing to do for the
safety of tho pjisscngers and crew was
to leave the ship and proceed to
Skidegate, which orders he gave about
r. m. Four boats were put into tho
water, provided with blankets, pro
visions, etc., and all headed Jor Sldde
gale, the first boat reaching there
about 12:50 a. jr., June 14th.
The same day, at 2:30 p. m., a Co
lumbia river fishing boat was obtained
from Mr. Tennant, of the Skidegate
oil works, and with the mate in charge,
two ot the ship's crew, Mr. Laiug,
superintendent of agencies of tho Brit
ish Empire Mutual Life Assurance
company, and Mr. Johnson, agent for
British Columbia of the same company,
left for Inverness with letters and to
obtain supplies for those on the island.'
The first night out camp was pitched
about thirty miles fiom Skidegate,
and tho next day the boat was taken
again, and they once more boarded
the ill-fated ship. They looked about
for food, supplies and blankets, but
found very little, everything being wet
They again left the ship, and running
before a lively breeze, reached one of
the outlying islands, where camp was
pitched for the night, and sit an early
hour next day lett for Inverness, which
place was reached at 3:30 v. jr.. Juno
The report received from the mate
ot the ship is that no such shoal as
tho shin struck is marked on Ihe
chart, and that no blame can Iks at
tached, to captain Smitlu It Is stated
that the ship Is a total wreck, being
wedged in between two large boulders,
one under her stem and one through
her port bow, it being only a matter
of the first wind from the southeast
when the ship will go to pieces.
Captain Smith, in reporting to cap
tain Irving, said: "Wc struck on a
rock shoal Jnne 13th, at 1:45 r. jr.,
which shoal the people here inform
me has been thrown up by the late
earthquake. The bearings from where
sue lies is .Lawn Jlill entrance to
Skidegate harbor, bearing north mag
netic; and White Cliff in line with
south south-west and of a hill on
Masset side, near Chawn brook, bear
ingN. "V. by W. magnetic five and one
half miles offshore, and fully a mile
outside of soundings given on chart
as six fathoms. She was going at full
speed, weather clear and not much
sea, low tide. At 3:4-1 proceeded
north with all the boats fully ladened
with passengers, mails, baggage, crew
and provisions to Skidegate village,
the first boat reaching the village at
12:40 a. jt. The steamer seems hung
from under the engine room, and
should a breeze spring up she will
certainly break up."
The explanation of the cause of the
wreck is of importance to navigators
of northern waters. The spot where
the Sardonyx now lies is in the direct
course of vessels making Skidegate,
and hundreds of steamers have passed
over the same spot before. The earth
quake explanation is very likely the
correct one, and it is also possible that
other rocks may at the same time
have been thrown up.

New York, June 25. The commit

clined to do. The second was that
the price of spirits bo made dependent
on the price of corn, as rated at the
board of trade of Chicago.
President Greenhut, however, refused
to put this agreement in writing. The
third proposition was that distillers

sell to wholesale dealers only, and
wholesalers shall be deemed as
such, when they can show certificates
from the board of trustees of the

dicate of English capitalists which re

them into one grand establishment.
For that purpose negotiations have

Last evening, on "West Ninth street,
as a man was working with two horses
and a scraper on the edge of a hill,
the scraper, with its load of dirt,
slipped down the bank, pulling
the man and horses along with it.
The bank was quite steep and the en
tire outfit rolled over twice, the man
saving himself when partway down,
but the team went to the bottom. No
particular damage was done, but it
was a lively tumble.

The mean height of land above sea
level, according to John McMurray,
the geographer, is 2250 feet, and the
mean depth of the ocean is 12,480 feet.
Only 2 per cent of the sea is included
inside a depth ot 500 fathoms. Ac
cording to calculations made, if all
lands were graded down and thrown
into the sea until our globe should be
come as ronnd and smooth as a bill
iard ball, the ocean would encircle the
world in one broad expanse of water
over two miles deep.
