Death of a Noted Indian Scout-Was
a Prench-Canadlan and Served
Under General Crooks.
"Little Bat," the famous ludian
sciiul, who escaped many dangeis un
Ilie Western plains only tn meet death
two days I.cfore Christmas In a saloon
tight at Crawford, Neb,, was one of
the must courageous men uf a class
thai is almost extinct. Twenty yeais
ago "Little Bal" was lhe hero of many
a thrilling adventure snd in his time
rendered valuable service to the United
States array. He was one of General
Crook's most, trusted men. In everyday life the wont was Baptist* Cannier, lull among soldiers and frontiersmen lie was known liy lhe half-affectionate title of "Utile Bat," for he had
earned tlie gratitude of many a blue-
iiint. When he was killed "Little
But" was on his way lo St. .losepli,
Mo., to visil one of his old fiiends, a
fuitmr scmil named Krank (irouard.
"Lii tie Hat was one of the coolest
and liravest men I ever knew," said
Orouard, when the news of his old
comrade's death was h-ought to him.
"He had many miraculous escapes,
and in times of greater peril he was
always perfectly fearless. Perhaps
the closest place he was ever in was
directly after the Custer massacre,
when he went out. with Lieutenant
Sibley and 25 picked men to find out
which way the Sioux were moving.
"We left camp nn the evening nf
July fl, 1870, and went toward Tongue
Hiver. along ihe fool of Ihe mountains.
We travelled most of the night, and
ahout daylight I he next morning Little
Bat caw an Indian looking over the
hill at us. We knew we were close tn
ihem and that we might expect
ironlile. 1 went with Liltle Bat at
daylight to a tint te a short distance
away, and we looked over the count ry
with our glasses. A few miles away
we could see hundreds of Indians inov-
ing in the direction of T«ngue River,
and we knew it meant death lo us if
«e did not gel away. Wc summoned
the soldiers at once and made lor the
"Tlie Indians struck our trail in a

on very fast afler that. The party
ruining toward us was a war party,
and I lean ed afterwards that Sitting
Hull was almig. \Y struck into the
trail ihat leads up into the mountains
from Dayton, hut before we reached
the mountains the Indians \ ■>■•« within
half a mile of us. Tli'-ic n. ., have
heen 400 of them, and half Oi ■ .'in
made for the trail thai, goes up trom
Twin Creek, to head us off there should
we try to escape liy I hat route.
"Little Bal went on ahead to watch
the Twin Creek trail, and I hurried
the soldiers along, I joined But after
after a time, leaving the soldiers lav
hind. They did not come up, and I
■vent hack to lliem, finding thai they
had slopped to eat. Bat killed the
fli-st Indian that came up the trail, and
I then came hack lo in. He told the
soldiers it was prohahly the lust meal
that they would ever eat. Their slopping there had caused us to lie cut off
by not passing the Twin Creek trail
hefore the Indians got there. Just as
I tbe Indians appeared we sent thc
soldiers into a little grove of trees
ii-ur liy and had them hunch their
horses, locating the men a consideralile
distance away.
"John Finerty, Chicago newspaper
correspondent, was with the scouting
party, and was thrown hy his horse as
we were making for the timber.   We
thought he wan killed, bill he was nnt
hurl, and But shoved him into the
trees, We had to leave the horses
I lien-and see them killed, tor the Indians k.pl firing al them all the time.
W'ebad instructed the soldiers not to
Hie a shot, and it was our Intention
not tn Are, hut when we went to ihe
edge of the timber Little Hi made
one of the best shuts ever made in the
West. He killed two Indians at one
shot,   1 saw him do it,
"The Indians were iiii their hnrses,
circling pi'elty close to the limher. As
we did not return their tire, two of
ihem became very daring. One of
them was Little Antelope, a Sioux
chief, who wa* beginning to he known
in the tribe, He was a bloodthirsty
devil. He was riding straight toward
us and the other Indian was behind
bim, when Little Bat fired. It Was
such a good shot that he could lint
resisl it. The Indian thnl was behind
fell flist, and Little Antelope dropped
over on his horse's inane. Before he
could fall off twn Indians ran nut and
held him on the horse, guiding it back.
Wc learned afterward that both were
killed instantly.
"There waa a washout running
through the grove, and we sent the
soldiers down into It. By watching
several hums for a chance, we crawled
out through that washout and wenl
into the mountains, where we traveled
several days in the direction of camp,
"We came out at the heal of Soldier
Creek and found n land of Indians
waiting for us. Litlle Bal and I crawled np within 200 yards uf Ihem and
saw that they were in war paint, It
was tedious waiting then- all day for
them to go away, but it had to be
"Some of the soldiers wanted to
fight the Indians, and I think they
would have heen willing in tight tin-
whole Sioux nation that day. One of
the soldiers went stark mad front bun*
gei and exposure, and we had to keep
him hound and gagged all day,
"When the Indians went away we
moved un, hut we were all nearly exhausted. We reached Big Goose
Creek and found that il could not be
forded. By that time another soldier
was crazy, and they both refused to
swim. We had to leave ihem there,
and Little Bat stayed with tlu-in. The
country was full of Indian", hut In-
remained with those Iwo deserted
soldiers at the risk of his own life.
"About 10o'clock lhat day we Saw a
man nn the hill in front of us. and
found hy looking at him through a
glass that, he was a soldier. A few
hours later we reached camp, and hud
hard work to prevent the soldiers from
eating enough to kill t hem. They had
lived on wild turnips for Several days.
"Two companies of men went, back
to Big Goose Creek after Bat and the
demented soldiers and brought them
in that day.
"Little Bat lived the rough life of a
scout, hut he was as true as any man
living. He never went back on a
friend and never was guilty of a mean
act. He was a French-Canadian, and,
I have heard, though not from him,
that he belonged to a wealthy fnniily
and could have lived a life of ease had
he desired.
"Tliere was no hetter smut in the
West in the days when tliere was wmk

of General Crunk's trusted men, and I
have heard the general say that be

progressing ns well as could tie expected. All the piles for the two deep
Water piers have been driven. The

Is ahout finished. The excavating for
the land piers has been dune and the

At the .Morning Glory.
The Morning Glory is maintaining
its past record for rich ore. In the
face of tbe drifts on the second and
third levels the pay ore is as rich as
ever, and the quantity has not diminished, The average width is about 18
inches. The ore that Is being sacked
for shipment to tbe smelter averages
about. $460 per ton. Work Is to cease
'bis Week upon Ihe lower level. The
force employed there is tn be withdrawn io the level above whei-»-a raise

The drift north nn the second level
will lie continued until lhe length nf

By ihe appointment of Dr. Jakes to
the mayoralty of Greenwood, thai
city's int-rests will he well looked after, and Greenwood's old time prosperity will, to a certain extent, return.
Dr. Jakes has heen iu the west lung
enough to know what a western town
requires, and will not attempt to make
it a straight laced city, such as some of
the old, slow-going towns of the east.
Greenwood never was as prosperous as
when il was run ns a wide-open town,
and it is of no use for over-zealous
workers for reform to suy anything to
the contrary. The conditions of this
country .it the present time require a
certain amount of freedom, aud we
helieve lhat the Doctor's hinad minded
views will prompt him to grant freedom that is sn necessary to tbe prosperity of any new lown in the west.
Byfarthe most important railway
project, as far ns this dislrict is con
cerned, that lias lieen recently advocated, is the scheme nnw advanced to
huild a line from Midway to Rock
Creek, thence up the west fork of Kettle River, continuing through the Mis
sion creek pass to Vernon, and there
connecting with the Shuswap and
Okanagan branch. Everything Ihal
this city and district can do to furthir
the project shnuld be al templed without delay. The inaugural ion of such
a line wnuld mean the Introduction of
an era of increased prosperity to this
section. It would afford us a direct
mute to nur best possible market. It
wnuld shorten tbe haul to Kootenay
pnints by some 200 miles. It would
open up one uf ihe must promising
mining regions uf the west, whieh lies
contiguous 'n uur doors, aud which is
at presenl undeveloped simply on ac
count of no transportation facilities.
From a provincial standpoint the
scheme is worthy of every possihle
means of assistance. At present the
8.&0. line is a drag upon the Province.
Its earning capacity does not nearly
meet tbe guarantee furnished hy the
government. But put it in connection
with i. line tapping the Boundary and
Kootenay mining camps, and all this
would at once be changed. From an
unfortunate investment the .8. & O.
would speedily assume the position of
a hig dividend earner, An impetus
would be given to agriculture and
general business in this district hy the
construction of such a road, which
would materially advance the interests
of all classes within our borders. We
feel that we are amply justified in calling iipnn the government to give
prompt and efficient aid to this project, and we trust that arrangements
will he made during the coming session which will ensure ils completion,

Legislature Summoned.
VlCTOKIA, January 17.-The provincial legislature has been summoned to
meet on February 1st for the despatch
of business.
The annual report of the Postmaster-
General for the year 18011-IflOO lias lieen
printed aud distributed. In the matter of postal revenue it should he remembered that the year was lhe Hrsl
during lbe whole uf which the reduction of domestic postage from three to
two cents per ounce and of the inter-
Imperial postage from (Ive lo two
cents |ier half ounce had effect, the
higher rales having prevuiled during
the first half of the previous year. The
revenue for the sale of postage S'amps,
cards, etc., for the past year, therefore,
fall shorts hy $53,000 of the total
amount derived in the previous year.
The lotal net revenue of the post office
from all sources, except fmiii the
Yukon and Atlin, exceeded that of thu
previous year by $1,(135 and the gross
revenue increased by $20,301, On the
other hand the expenditure of the
department omitting Ihe Yukon and
Ailin districts, exceeded that of the
previous year by $03,707. It appears,
therefore, that a larger volume of
postal business was handled at an increased expense of slightly over 1\ per
cent. The net revenue for the year
was $3,183,IIS! and the expenditure
$3,015,018, leaving a deficit of $181,001.
The deficit last year was $388,017 ;
the total number of letters posted iu
Canada during tbe year was 178,292,-
600 ; post cards, 27,130,000; registered
letters, 4,312,000 ; free letters, 0,318,000;
newspapers (transient), periodicals,
etc., 72,072; packages, etc., 3,881,760:
fourth class matter, 2,040,000 ; and
closed parcels for Britain and elsewhere, 31,038. By Provinces the number of letters posted was as follows :
Ontario, 00,(102,500 ; Quebec, 40,260,000 ;
Nova Scoiia, 12,400,000; New. Brunswick, 8.080,000; P. E. I„ 1,750,000;
British Columbia, 0,760,000; and Manitoba and N. W. T., 15,450,000.

wards to consider a proposal made by
the London anil Canada Syndicate, of
London, England, to form a new company, with head office iu Eugland, to
acquire the mineial claims and real
estate of the local company and to extensively develop the more promising
of I hese claims. The scheme proponed
was explained in detail tothe meeting,
which unanimously adopted a resolution empowering the directors io sell
the property and assets of the company.
Later the directors held a meeting
and appointed Mr. D. A. Holbrook,
president, and Mr. E. Jacobs, secretary-treasurer. A cable was sent to
England notifying the London k Canada syndicate that their scheme had
heen sanctioned by the shareholders.
An Important Deal.
The negotiations which have heen in
progress for some time past hetween
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and the Canadian Pacific Navigation Company looking to the acquirement hy the former of a controlling interest in the capital stock of the
latter, culminated in the completion of
the deal on Wednesday in Victoria.
The final details of lbe big deal were

inner nf i he Hudson's Bay Company,
who has been in Victoria on Ihis ini-
pnr'*-iit mission for Ihe past few days.
Official information is lo the effect
that a greatly improved service will he

Boundary in Dispute.
The question is often asked concerning the reason for leaving the three
mile strip on the north of the Colville
reservation un«urveyed. In answer to
a query directed (o Surveyor-General
Kingsbury he said :
"I cannot tell, as I am waiting advices frnm Washington, D. C. The
International boundary line has not as
yet been definitely set'led in tbat
section, and Ihere is a three mile strip
on tho not Ul end of the Colville reserve
to which we have not as yet obtained
good title. Petitions for the survey of
the north part of this reserve have
been forwarded to Commissioner Hermann of Washington, hut no reply,

Fire Originated In McBean & Co.'a
Dry Goods Store-Loss Estimated at $35,000.
A few minutes after eight o'clnck
lust Thursday evening a tire broke out
iu a large dry goods store on Dominion
avenue, Phoenix, which threatened
the whole lower end of lhe lown fur mi
hour, but was Anally stopped ufter doing damage to the extent of neatly
$35,000. The first general Intimation
of a bud fire was when three lung
whistles fnun the compressor *• 'he
Brooklyn mine were heard nil mer
town. The Are hid burst out of lhe
..ecoitd story nf M. McBean k I .'» dr)
goods store. Ii quickly spread to ibe
Imperial hotel buildin-i, ndjuiulng on
ihe inn tii side of Dominion avenue,
.ind thence to the Molding of the I'hoe
nix News company, all lieing two story
strut-lures. The Are burned very
fiercely, and threatened a long row of
two and ihree story huildings nn the
opposite side of the avenue. Giant
powder was used three or tour limes
with good effect. There ,vas a scarcity
of water, hut several Are engines could
hardly have slopped the flames,
Mayor Kiimberger and Chief of Police McMillan, assisted liy a large iiuiti-
bei of citizens, did yeoman service in
saving goods and tearing down structures to stop the spread of the flames.
Much damage was done through broken glass all over the city. An Incomplete list of the losses is as follows :
M. McBean k Co., stock, $12,11110 ; William Hunter company, McBean building, $3,(100 s W. .1. Henderson, Imperial

The Berliner
This 19 the machine that talks—sings—plays every instrument—reproduces
Sousa's Band—string orhcestras—Negro Minstrels, Church Choirs, etc.
It reproduces the violin, piano, flute, cornet, trombone, banjo, mandolin,
piccolo and every other instrument.
The Berliner Gram-o-phone is louder—clearer, simpler and better than any
other talking machine at any price. It 6ings every kind of son-;, sacred, comic,
sentimental, patriotic, "Coon" songs, English, French and Scotch Songs, selections from Grand and Comic Operas, plays cake walks, waltzes, two-steps, inarches,
in fact everything that can be played on any instrument or number of instruments
can be reproduced on the Berliner Gram-o-phone with the wonderful indestructible record discs.
It tells funny stories or repeats a prayer. It can entertain hundreds at one
time in the largest hall or church, or it can be subdued to suit the smallest room.
The Records are not wax, they are Hard, Flat, Indestructible Discs, which
will last 10 years.
The Berliner Gram-o-phone is made in Canada, it is guaranteed for Ave years.
The Gram-o-phone is used and endorsed by the leading clergymen and
others throughout Canada.
The Berliner Gram-o-phone received the only medal
forTalking Machines nt the Toronto Exhibition 1000.
The Berliner Gram-o-phone has been widely imitated
and the records counterfeited, therefore beware of machines
with misleading names as they are worthless.
If the Berliner Gram-o-phone is not for sale in your
town, write to us for illustrated catalogues and other
information, free.
