The series of "bumps" which occurred last night and this morning at Coal Creek, in No. mine east, which were reported this morning, while extensive and severe, resulted in the loss of but one lite, that of John Gronac, whose body is Btill in the mine, no attempt being made today to recover it, owing to the continuation of bumps and the accum- ulation of gas which was liberated by the caving, and the continuation of caving in the disturbed district. The bumns were distinctly felt at Fernie and Ilosmcr, many thinking an "ZWt bmnp'Scll't'ook place Davidson this morning ..gave order five minutes to ton o'clock last night! from the bench for the issuance and caused the Injury to the man, John Kerns, a colored man who lives in Fernie, and who was brought down to the hospital at midnight.

Word was sent to Fernie and a spe- cial train went up with General Man- ager Wilson, Inspector Thomas Wil- liams, and others, who joined with Mr Calltield, Fire Bosses John Bell, J. Maltman, .1. Caufield, Dave Martin and others in an effort to rescue a party of nine men who had been cut off by caves when the second bump took place. Eight of these men were saved by their own efforts and other aid, but tho body of John Oornac, the ninth man. is still in the mine, no hopes of his being alive being- entertained. While these meu of the rescue party were still in the mine the third and most terrific bump took place, filling the mine with dust and gas to such an extent that the men were left in utter darkness for a time, and in an atmosphere that was almost unbear- able. Some of them can not yet tell exact- ly how they succeeded in reaching daylight through the' dense fog of dust and gas. None of them have experienced much permanent injury; Gen. Man- ager Wilson seems to have received the most punishment, he still being at his home suffering from his experi- ence, but nothing serious will result.

It will be nio'st disappointing to the com- mittee if the citizens do not avail themselves of this opportunity to get better acquainted with the ob- ject- of the big campaign which opens next week. The recent pat- riotic meetings have not been as well attended as is customary for the people of Lethbrldge, and it 'has been thought that this was due'to the lack of advertising. The committee has endeavored to give this meeting wide publicity. If you have some other engage- ment for that night, stop and con- sider for a minute which is the most important.

Neck and Neck Race New York. Nov. election passed into the second day of uncer- tainty, with President Wilson and Charles Evans Hughes both anxiously awaiting the count in a few western states, the pivotal ones being Cali- fornia with 13 electoral votes, Minne- sota with 12, New Mexico with 3 and North Dakota with 5. Although still so close that the re- sult could not be regarded as assured, indicative over-night returns seemed to' dispose of previously doubtful states-by placing West Virginia's S votes in the Hughes column, and giv- ing four votes of Idaho and seven, from President Wilson. The Hughes total thus becomes 243 and the Wilson, total 2B5, -with 266 necessary to elect. After so disposing 1' of these previously doubtful states rom which returns still. are incom- plete, the situation appeared to be as ollows: Present Situation President Wilson can win with either California or Minnesota, but in addition must have either North Da- kota or New Mexico. Mr. Hughes to win must have both California and Minnesota, or either one, and in addi- tion both North Dakota and New Mexico. In-California, President Wil- son had a lead of nearly 5000 with one- tenth ot the state precincts missing. Of 570 missing, 143 are in the Republi- can' stronghold, and'the others are in the northern districts, where the pre- sident's vote has been heavy. Both party managers claim the state.
