C, Aug. 19.-Richard Hembro, a Welsh miner, was badly mangled and instantly killed in No. 3 mine, Coal Creek, this afternoon, just before the shift came out of the mine. l-'jinbro was a rope boss and the rope broke letting a trip of several coal cars run back over him.

ELM LEADS IN CANADIAN COOPERAGE BUT IS DECLINING FIRE DOES $2500 DAMAGE St. Thomas, Ont., Aug. 20.-An early morning fire destroyed the barns and caretaker's dwellings on the .property of John Farley, causing a loss of $2,-000. The barns/of Mrs. M. F. Gilbert were also burned, the loss being $500. Although elm still leads among the woods used for Black cooperage, spruce is rapidly supplanting it. in the total output of barrels in the Dominion last year, there were used, according to the figures compiled by the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior, 80,010,000 pieces of elm, In staves, headings and hoops, as against 37,704,000 pieces of spruce. There were, however, over 11,000,000 more spruce staves and 9,000,000 fewer elm staves reported for 1911 than for 11)10. In time elm will probably be used only for hoops, as It is the best wood for the purpose, the supply is fast diminishing, and other species can be used to advantage for staves and headings. The ultimate substitute for elm will probably be birch, which is comparatively plentiful. Slacls cooperage Is of vastly greater importance than tight cooperage in Canada. This is because the majority of Canadian products are of a rough and dry nature, such as lime, potatoes, apples, dry tish, Hour, cereals, etc., and because Canadian woods are best suited to slack cooperage. White oak, the only wood which can bo used for containers of alcoholic liquids, has been practically exhausted in Canadian woodlands. In 1911 only 2,7�S,000 oak staves were cut, while 7,21)3,000 were imported. A rough estimate on the part of the forestry branch, places the minimum amount of material used in the manufacture of all classes of cooperage as 02,353,100 board feet, made up as follows: staves. 29,367,714 feet; heading, 21,466,666 feet, and hoops, 62,303,190 feet.

GREAT BRITAIN WILL EXHIBIT PANAMA BILL NOT INTERFERING WITH PARTICIPATION IN FRISCO EXPOSITION London, Aug. 20.-Rumor* that Great Britain might not take part in the Panama Exposition pn account of the dissatisfaction with the Canal Bill, were disposed of today, when the American Embassy here received official notification from the Foreign Office of the participation of England In the 1915 exposition The extent of the participation is not stated, as the allotment of space for the various countries has not yet been made, but it Is now officially assured that Great Britain will take part in the celebration of the opening of the canal, the feeling being that any disagreement over the action of the United States, as to canal tolls will be amicably adjusted before the time of the Exposition. London, Aug. 19.-The United States embassy today received a reply from the British foreign office to President Taft's invitation to the British Goverrnent to participate in the Panama-Pacific Exposition.

Winston Churchill would visit the Dominion during the cabinet conference on the navy policy is leading I to the belief at the capital that such [an event is most improbable, though jit is realized that a visit from the First Lord of the Admiralty would be quite in accord with a resolution passed at the Imperial conference of 1911 in which reciprocal visits by. ministers of the United Kingdom and of the dominions between conferences was advocated. Still, it is considered at the capital that a visit from the First Lord at a period when the navy question was being discussed would be indiscreet.
