Niagara Falls, August 7:—The
volume of waier being diverted
from the historic Niagara Falls is
reaching such proportions that the
people of the State are trying to pass
laws which will prevent the possibil-
ity of a practical wiping out of this
sublime natural spectacle.
Water sufficient to develop nearly
five hundred thousand horse-power
Jontinuously, twenty-four hours per
day, for industrial purposes, Is now
being taken from the river above the
Falls, and further developments re-
quiring more water are contemplated..
Probably the largest user of the
electricity produced by the waters of
the mighty river is the concern which
by the five or six thousand degree
heat of the electric furnace brings
lime and coke into unwilling union,
thereby producing what is known as
Dry calcium carbide is lifeless as

The light resulting from the ignition
of acetylene is the nearest approach
to sunlight known.
These facts, though of compara-
tively recent discovery, were soon
seized by men with an eye to the com-
mercial possibilities and to-day cal-
cium carbide is being shipped every-
where and used for dispelling dark-
ness in buildings of all descriptions,

well as for lighting the streets of a
large number of towns. Acetylene
can be easily and cheaply installed,
and the manufacture and sale of

business of recognized standing, has

Complete List of Dead Not Obtainable
Thirty-six Have Already Died—Car-
penters Were Working on Floor
Beam, Which Was Jarred Loose
ALBANY, N. Y.: More than one
hundred persons, a large majority of
Wdom were girls, were buried beneath
a smother of brick, wood and plaster
when the central portion of the large
department store of the John G
Myers company collapsed from roof
to cellar. The wrecked portion in-
cluded nearly one-half of the store.
Scores of rescuers, toiling among
the ruins, have recovered thirty-five
injured persons. Three cf these died
after reaching the hospitals. At
that t:me 110 were unaccounted for,
and it is certain that at least half of
these are still beneath the mound of
debris. About 400 persons are on
the pay roll of the Myers company
but probably fifty of these are away
The collapse of the building oc-
curred shortly after the opening hour,
when only a few shoppers were in
the store. A clock found in the debris
had stopped at twelve minutes before
9 o'clock, showing when the crash
The best account of the event that
probably caused the ruin is given by

"The workmen were sawing a
wooden floor beam," said lie, "which
runs under the north end of the cen-
tral pillars, in the middle of the store.
Excavation from the cellar was go^
ing on about the base of this pillar,
and I believe the jarring of the beam
beneath it displaced the foundation
of the pillar."
The pillars which fave way sup-
ported the girders, and when it fell
the main support of the central part
of the building was gone. With a
noise that was heard many' blocks
away, and which shook the adjoining
buildings, nearly half the great struc-
ture from the cellar to the roof, and
extending from one sidewalk to the
other, came grinding down. When
the fire department arrived, the fire-

have been threatening to go on a
strike on account of changing the
size of the screen. Th? miners
heretofore have been receiving pay
for screened coal at the rate of ninety

dent of the mines discovered a few
days ago that the screen in use would
not screen the coal as It should be,
and changed it somewhat. The
miners objected to the change made,
and many of them have refused to
work. It is hoped, however, that the
dispute may be adjustel within a

To Stop Crowing
Portsmouth, England, has pas?ed
an ordinance for the suppression of
cock crowing. The chicken fane ers
say it cannot be suppressed, but the
London News say that a partial rem-

where the cock roosts so high that
when it stands up to crow he knocks
his head against the roof, and desists.
A swinging board hung over his head
answers the same purpose, it says.

Traffic in Indian Girls
VANCOl VER, B. C.: A report
has been made to the provincial po-
lice by Constable Jones, who has just
returned from the Indian village at
Cape Mudge, stating that in that set-
tlement there is open traffic in In-
dian girls. Jones found a number of
well authenticated cases where half-
breed and quarter-breed girls have re-
cently been sold to white men at
prices ranging from $100 to $200. A
complete investigation will be made
by the authorities.
