Rt. Hon. R. h. Borden, Canadian premier; lion. C. J. Doheu-ty, Canadian minister of justice, and Hon. J. D.

GROANS HEARD IN NO. 1 MINE WHETHER IT IS MAN OR MULE RESCUERS ARE NOT ABLE TO SAY TJniontown, Pa., July 30.-A pecul iar situation exists at the Lemot Mine No. 1, of the H. C. Frick Coke Co., flooded last week by torrential rains. Whether John Bolchek, one of three men caught in the mine No. 1 by the water, is appealing for help, or whether a trapped mine mule is groaning, is the puzzling question to night. Since Saturday last rescue parties of 25 men each have been working frantically to dig .from mine No. '>, through a wall to mine No. 1, in hopes of reaching Bolchek, who is believed to be alive. The rescue workers are divided as to just who is living-the man or a mule. When the men started to penetrate tlie wall, it was believed to be a distance of forty-five feet. The men have bored through sixty feet, and are said to have at least twenty feet to go. It is expected mine No. 1 will be reached today.

"Good for Leather-$taads the Weather" Mirth and Magic at the Majestic An all round good vaudeville bill it the attraction at the Majestic Theatre this week. Last night the Al-bini-Avolo company commenced their engagement here with an attractive program of mirth and magic. There are one or two excellent numbers on the bill, namely that or Colby the ventriloquist, whose ability is far above the average. Colby has remarkable control of his facial muscles and his work is deftly executed. His partner, Way, featuring ihe dancing doll, made an instantaneous success with the audience. Onetta, the Dervish whirlwind and novelty artiste, won the applause of the house for her act. The three Stratton Bros, played the bagpipes in typical Scotch style, and Bessie Allen sang one or two songs in a fetching kind of a way. The Avolo trio, however, in their Zylophone selections, including the ever welcome William Tell over-; ture and a somewhat original and clever march composed by one of their number were loudly encored. Tom Brantford succeeded in making his hearers roar with laughter while the great and only Albini was there with the mystic hand in a variety of tricks and illusions. Albini is in a cjass by himself. 'Che program on whole' is worthy of liberal patronage. Albini will be at the Majestic during the remainder of this week. There will be a special Wednesday matinee.    Novelty at Starland Starland, Limited, made a big scoop at Calgary last Saturday, and secured a 500 feet reel on "The Calgary Auto Races."' This film was taken and developed on the spot, and Starland control the sole rights of exhibition in Western Canada. It will be shown in Lethbridgc on Wednesday and Thursday and includes tho world's greatest record-ftrcakers, composed of "Barney Oldfield" (the King of Speeders) who has been racing for thirteen years, during which time he has won more than $100,000 in prizes and bonuses, and has also killed eight persons and been in more than forty accidents. The other big speeders are "Lew Beinemann" and "Wild Bill Fritsch", both of whom are world-famed in auto racing;. This is a local and special novelty, and is in addition to the ordinary program.    At the Bijou The Bijou theatre management are presenting this Wednesday and Thurs day, in addition to tholr usual programme a subject that is, without doubt, the most wonderful production of photoplay studio ever seen. The title of this masterpiece is "Bounder," and when the spectator sees the fight between wild animals and the desperate struggle for life .between man and beast one cannot help mut wonder how the camera can possibly photograph such exhibitions. A pretty story is woven round the various scenes, malting the subject most interesting, as well as exciting. "Bunny," that inimitable comedian of the Vitagraph Co., will be again in evidence, and the management recommend strongly this programme to all lovers of motion photography.    Sells-Flo>>o Circus The first really big circus -to arrive here this season will be the great Sells-Floto Consolidated Show, which is booked to appear in this city on Saturday, Aug. 3. For many years now, this inpular prices attraction has been coming back greatly enlarged in every vuy and positively, giving more for the money than any kindred attraction touring the country. This season the management announces that theyihavc, added many novel features to those which are considered a part and parcel of the conventional circus. Amongst these are several new European novelties, which have never before been seen in this country, the wonder of it all being how the Sells-Flota people can give such a marvelous performance at such a small price. That they are able to do so, however, is proven by the fact that for three years now they have cut the time-honored price in half aud made money by doing so, all/ of which goes to show that even in the circus world, and where the daily expenses run up into the thousands,, the theory* of popular prices is practical. Two performances will be given here on the day the circus arrives. The grand street parade will, as usual, be a spectacle of more than ordinary magnificence. IS THE TIGHT SKIRT AN IMMODEST DRESS Venice Cardinal Creates Sensation Among the Women Folk Rome, .July 27.-The church has from time to time raised its voice in no uncertain inanner over the present day fashions, with, it must be confessed, little appreciable effect. Now the great Cardinal Cavallari, patriarch oi Venice, a personal friend of Pius X., has taken up the question and in a discourse in the Cathedral of Queen of Adriac he told the women of Venice, and through the press, vhe women of all Italy what the church thinks of those who dress in the present extreme styles. His scathing denunciation roust have caused some searchings of heart in many of his congregation. It was noticeable that the confessionals were overcrowded with women,- although they appeared in the objectionably cut garments, and have not yet discarded them. . The Cardinal's discourse is interesting outside of Italy. He' recalledt what St, Peter said on the subject of women's garments and adornment and asked the pertinent question, whether such Was the leading; idea among the women of the present day. Then he went on : "Today the immodesty of mode of dressing of many women has arrived at such a point that even men, who HUG QUOTATIONS AT WINDSOR �Windsor, July 29.-Hugs in Windsor cost $22.50 each, according to an appraisal handed down by Magistrate Leggett, when Aaron Lindsay appeared on a charge of having bestowed an unwelcome caress upon his neighbor, Mrs. Rosina Mosley. Lindsay pleaded guilty aud was assessed $22.50. are naturally virtuous, are disgusted and repelled. Where is the modesty of those who wear the present day costume ? What does that impudent nudity mean hut lack of virtue. "I declare now, publicly, that at the first Sunday communion at my house I shall not allow any one dressed in that way to appear with children. I am at home there and shall assert my authority." The patriarch then made a passionate appeal to the farmers of families to put a stop to the abuse. The cardinal's discourse recalls the situation in Naples last year in regard to the same subject. The clergy had been preaching against the immodesty of the fashions, and a campaign had begun when the question was itaken up by the anti-clerical element, who.declared in favor of the tight skirts. The controversy. led to riots for which the police had to be called out, whenever a priest and ft woman in tight skirts met on the streets, the passersby immediately taking sides according to their opinion. Pius X has not publicly supported the patriarch's criticism for the reason that not very long ago he issued a statement himself on the subject, but he has sent to the carninal an autograph letter of approval, and caused be known that, although he has not himself seen the obnoxious garments, he thinks that every priest and every man should fight against the immodest tendencies of the day. Empress Passengers Made Grand Rush for Cameras (Continued from front page). I Due to Dense Fog A vivid description of the accident was given by a British naval officer on board the Empress, who withheld his name on the ground that naval etiquette prevented him from making any announcement as to the affair until after the official investigation. He said that he had carefully watched the Whole events connected with the collision, and bad concluded that it was entirely due to the dense fog, the commanders of each boat doing everything possible under the circumstances. "We were going along very carefully',' said he, "making about six knots, feeling our way in the thick fog, and had it not been for the quick action of Captain Murray, there might have been a disaster almost, comparable to that of the Tttanie,, since it was entirely due to his work that the Empress hit the Helvetia, instead of the collier ramming the liner, which would have certainly meant that she would have sunk with probably great loss of life. Cry of Alarm "I was on deck at the time, and watched our slow progress in the fog which had lasted several hours. Suddenly there was a cry of alarm from the man in the crow's nest, and at the same moment we saw the hulk of the Helvetia within fifty yards directly ahead of us, apparently nearly across our bows. "Immediately one blast of the Empress whistle was given, showing a ship on the starboard bow, and the Empress' helm was put to starboard, two blasts being given to let the other vessel know what we were doing. Immediately afterwards three short blasts were sounded to tell the Helvetia that the Empress engines were running full speed astern. "The Helvetia, being a small boat, had no crow's nest lookout to see us as soon as we saw her. Hearing the Empress whistle, she apparently thought she was meeting a ship, instead cf which we were running into her 'broadside. The captain of the Helvetia ported his helm, which was the proper thing to do-if he had gone to starboard he would have rammed the Empress in the middle, with tha almost certainty of sinking her with her 720 passengers. "By that time we were close to the other ship, although the Empress engines were running full astern, and the prow of the Empress struck the smaller boat square amidships at the engine room. Little Shock "It was amazing how little shock there was. The bows of the Empress cut almost completely through the collier; the concussion was not much more than would be caused by a row- NM>B\KO LAXATIVES are best for nurslnf mothers because they do not affect the rest of the system.

Nearly all the Empress passengers were on deck at the time, but there was not the slightest suggestion of panic, even the women behaving with wonderful calm. "It was at once apparent that the Helvetia must sink, and Capt. Murray signalled the Empress engineer to go slowly ahead. In this way the Helvetia was practically impaled on the bows of the Empress, very much as a pair of eyeglasses on a nose, and was kept afloat by the impetus of the Empress. Empress Boats Ready "In the meantime the port boats of the Empress had been lowered, and were cruising around, ready ito save any of the crew of the Helvetia. But the Officers and crew of the Helvetia had no need of boats, they simply swarmed up the bow of the Empress, which was firmly embedded In their decks, and found safety without difficulty. "Then came the crucial time. For thirty-three minutes, the Empress bad kept the collier afloat by pushing her through the water, as she filled through the huge hole in her side. Dangerous Period "As soon as all the crew were saved, and it was plain no more could be done, Capt. Murray ordered the engines full speed astern in order to shake the Empress free of the other vessel. But the bows of the liner were stuck so firmly in the middle of the other ship that for some time she would not get away. Thus the Empress was backing up with a dead weight of 9,000 tons stuck to her bows, and the position wag much more critical than any of the passengers imagined, as thei* was danger that the Helvetia in breaking away might tear out the fore part of the Empress aud flood her two forward compartments.  "It was not until the Helvetia was actually sinking that she was freed from the Empress. Suddenly she lurched deep in the sea, and broke away, leaving about thirty f�et of the steel plates of her deck and sides in the bows of the Empress. "By this time the fog had lifted, and we saw the collier list heavily, and then start to sink. As her stern disappeared below tho water, there was a tremendous clatter, the machinery and everything movable falling backwards. "There was no explosion, but a tremendous hiss of escaping steam and noiBe of falling furniture and machinery. Helvetia Sinks "Then, with a strange, lurching movement, the Helvetia took a per-' pendlcular position, heV bows pointing straight up, and her stern under water. There followed a few moments of almost complete silence, and then the vessel went down with a curious, slow, sliding movement, making hardly a percepti'ble wash as she sank. It was a most impressive sight, and so exactly suggestive of the loss of the Titanic, that it caused a very .painful sensation amongst our passengers, even though they knew that by some happy chance none had even been injured. Engineer's Escape "One of the extraordinary escapes cf the affair was that of the fourth engineer of the Helvetia.

The smash ing of his cabin at once showed him there was a collision, but the force of the Empress had smashed the door and locked the engineer in. For a few minutes he was a prisoner, but as the Empress smashed through, its bow broke the deck of the Helvetia. The engineer was able to crawl through the hole in the deck,' and ewarmed, in his pyjamas, up the fore-peak of the Empress in safety. Later, when the Empress of Britain was separated from the sinking vessel, the engineer's underclothing was still hanging to the broken plates in her bows. LIQUOR MEN ARE SORE ON PRIEST DEFEATED AT POLLS CLAIM CONFESSIONAL WAS USED FOR INTIMIDATION PURPOSES Montreal, July 29.-News comes from the parish of Eaie Ste. Paul, in Charlevoix county, of an interesting case, in which a priest it charged with influencing voters in the confessional. The case arises out of the recent contest on the liquor question there,, and the victory of Father Tremblay over the pro-license party. Many years ago the pariah priest, Father Fafard, in order to regulate the liquor traffic, was instrumental in the establishing of a municipal store for the sale "of liquor. This has been the only place where i*quor could be purchased, and it was not sold by the glasB, but only by 'the bottle. Father Tremblay, the recently appointed parish priest; waged a. complete prohibition campaign, which was fiercely opposed by the pro-license party. ' - - At one time, Mr. Justice Simon, the district judge, was so incensed by. some of the priest's remarks in the churches that he walked put. The vote finally showed the prohibition party victorious by fourteen votes, and the abolition of the one place In the parish of some 7,000 people where liquor cculd be' purchased was apparently nssured. ' Irt is charged, however, that certain voters were intimidated in the confessional, and tho case is now before the courts of the district. ANOTHER SPOUT ~ FOR GRAIN CROP G. T. P.
