He lmd lieen unconscious since 7:05 p.

was spent with hU wife, lo whom he
devoted n lift* time of care. He died
unattended I.y it minister nf t In- gospel,
Imt his hist, words were mi hiiinlile
submission lo the will of the Hnd in
ii hum he helinved. He wits reconciled
to the cruel fHte to which an assassin's
Imllet lind condemned him, anil faced
dentil in the same spirit nf calmness
and pence wliieh marked his long nnd
hminialile career. His last conscious
winds, reduced in writing hy Dr.Miinn,
whn al nod liy his hedside, when Ihey
weie tnten-d wire us follnWj : "Gootj
hve nil, itis God's way, Hi-i will lie
dime, not ours,"
His relatives mid ineiiiliers nf his
ollicinl family were at the Mill.in li
Huns.*, except Secretary Wilson, who
did not avail himself nf the oppor-
iiiniiy, and some of his close personal
and political friends look leave nf him.
This painful ceremony was simple.
His friends simply c.-iine In tlm door of
the sii-k room, took a longing i'l une
nt him and turned tearfully away.
He was practically unconscious during
this lime. Bur the powers of heirt
-'minimis, including oxygen, were
einplnyed to restore him In consciousness for his Kuril purling with his wife,
lie asked foi her. she sit al his side
mid held his hand. He consoled her
and hade her good hye. She went
ilitiiiigh the heart-trying scene with
lhe same bravery and fnrlilude wilh
which she lins home the grief nf the
tragedy .which ended his life.
Milburn Housk, Buffalo, Sept. 13,.—
Hefnre (t o'clo. k it was il.iir lo those
at the president's hedside that lie was
dying, and preparations were made
fur the lasl sad offices offarew-.il from
those who were nearest and dearest to
him. Oxygen had l-een administeied
steadily, hut with little effect, in keep
ing hack the approach of death. The
president came out of nne |>erii.ii of
un'.-nnsriousness only lo relapse into
another. But in this period, when his
tiiitid wis partially clear, orctined a
series of evenis of profoundly touching
character down slabs. With leur-
staiued faces, menilieis of the caliinel
Were grouped in anxious waiting,
They knew the end was near ami that
the lime had come whin they must
see him for the lasl time on earth
This wae ahout six o'clock, It was an
awful moment for them. One hy one
I hey ascended the stab way, Secretary
Boot, Secretary Hitchcock and Altor-
icydeiieral Knox. Secreiary Wilson
also wan there, hut he held hack, not
wishing lu see the president in his last,
agony. There was only a momentary
si ii y of the caliinel officials ar lhe
threshold of the death rluiiuher.
Then they withdrew, lhe I ears streaming down their faces and I he winds of
iiitense.grlef clinking in their throats.
After they left the sick room the
physicians rallied him to consciousness,ntnl the president asked iilinostlm-
mediately Ihal his wile lie brought to
him. The diH'tius. fell hack into the
shadows nf the room us Mrs. McKinley came through the doorway, Tho
strung late of lhe dying man lighted
up with a faint smile as their hands
were clasped. She rat beside him and
held his hand. Despite her phy-icinl
weakness she bore up bravely under
the ordeal. The president in his last
period of cotiscioiisin ss, which ended
about 7:10 o'clock, chanted the words
of ihe beauiiful hymn, "Nearer My
God to Thee," and his last audible
conscious works ua taken down hy
Dr. Mann at the bedside were, "Good
hye all, good hye. ll is God's way.
His will be done." Then his mind be-
g in to wander, and sunn afterwards
he completely lost consciousness. His
life was prolonged for hours hy the
ailmiiiislraiioti of oxygen, and the
president Dually expressed a desire lo
tie allowed to die.
About 8.8(1 the administration ot
oxygen ceasul and bis pulse grew
faint, vety faint. He was sinking gra
dually, like a child into uu eternal
slumber. Bv 1(1 o'clock the pulse could
no longer Le felt in hia extremities,and
they grew cold.
Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept.
14.—The president remained in an un
conscious stale from Hit). Dr. Rixey
remained with him al, all times mid
linlil death came. The other doctors
were iu lhe room al times and tlieu
repaired to lhe front room, where ihe
consultation had been held. Ahoul
2 o'clock the doctor noted the munis-
i.-iknlile signs of dissolution and the
immediate members of lhe family were
summoned to the bedside. Mrs. Mo
Kinley was asleep mid it was desirable
not to awaken her for lbe last moments
uf anguish. Silently and sadly the
members of the family stole iuto tin*
iiiiui). Tbeysiood about ibe foul and
side of the bed where the great man's
life was ebbing away.
Secretary (Jorielyutl was the first to
luin from the slricken circle. He
Stepped front lhe chtim'lier to the outer'
hall and then down the stairway lo
the large room where the ineiiiliers of
the cabinet, seiialurs and distinguished officials were assembled. As his
tense, while face app-ared at the door
way a hush tell upon lhe assemblage.
"Genllenteti, the president has passed away," he said.
For a moment not a word came in
reply. Even ihongh the end had been
expected, the actual announcement
that Mr. McKinley was dead fairly
stunned these men who had been bis
closest confidants and advisers. Then
a groan of anguish went up from the
assembled ufficers.

MONDAY. SEPTEMBER ia l«ll.
The liest issue of lhe Ladysmith
Leader and Wellington-Extension
News is lo hand. Il isa seven column,
four pige semi-weekly, published al
the new town nn the east coast of
Vancouver Island by T. I (Jruhame,
well known to the newspaper fraternity uf British Ooiumbia. The Leader's
tirsi number is a very creditable production, and would he a credit to a
phi v many times Ihe size of Lady-
.smith. If lhe subsequent issues are
anywhere near as good as the initial
number it is deserving of the support
of tlie town in which it ie published.
#unr- wirHKi.1, Pkopmitor |m «'■»»•«»"'» nneiimw, **nen u in*
s'eml of reciprocating the patronage
that has been given him, he goes else
where to soend his money, when he
run procure the commodity or assistance, as the case may he, at home, he
is not only acting dishonestly hut is a
traitor to the town in which he lives.
Of course a town can support a few of
these parasites without scriuusly feeling the effects of their bloodsucking
tendencies, but if they become iiiimer-
oiis,iheir greediness hasa demoralising
effect upon husiness, and if there were
enough of this class of people in a town
business would he practically suspended, transactions only taking place
when strangers struck town. Now
imagine a town in which this state of
affairs existed I And yet there sre few
towns in the province, in which if the
methods practiced by a few of its eiti*
sens were practiced by the entire population, hul. wonld be placed in this
peculiar position. Merchants do not
alone suffer by spending their money
in a town among people who instead
of buying their supplies in the town in
which they live, send lo outside
points for them, for the local newspaper often—to use a strt ot expression
—gets it in the neck. A greal numher
of people seem to think if is only natur
al tbat. a newspaper man should spend
his money at the various business
places.in ihe town in whioh he lives,
and that they are perfectly justified in
withholding Iheir patronage from the
local newspapers, md advertising in
papers, the readers of « hicb would not
care whether Mr. Brown sells general
merchandise or cayuses, whether Mr.
Smith runs a hotel or a Chinese laundry, and yet Ihese patronizers nf distant papers expect the home paper to
say everything favorable about their
businesses; expect it to advertise -the
town and then if I hose engaged in running the paper spend their money freely Ihese people make no kick, and seldom say anything beyond occasionally
giving a few pointers as to how a paper
should be run. Fortunately Midway
has but few nf (hese germs of contention and; it is to he hoped lhat they
may see the error of their ways and
adopt a different policy without having
to be taught by that expensive teacher,
Experience.
Beforo the sun goes down on Satin-
day, Si.plember 21, Sir Thomas Lipton
will know whether he is lo win tbe
coveted trophy, for the Hist race of
the s-rios for the America's cup will he
sailed on that date, and burring accidents, of course, if tbe Shamrock is
going to win she will have to show her
Niip-i'ior speed in I he Unt race, ol her-
wise it. is a safe hei that the America's
cup does nut cross the Atlantic this
year. But American yachtmen are
beginning to look up lo the challenger
us a buat- that will he very hard tu
beat. English opinion is that the
Shamrock is by far ihe lietter yacht,
hul. i aturully ihis opinion is looked
upon us prejudiced in favor of Sir
Thomas Upton's racer, yet there is no
di.ui.l that il no serious accident occurs to prevent the Shamrock from
making the excellent showing it is doing ut prescn t,thnt Sir Thomas Lipton's
persistency will he rewarded hy the
possession of lhe America's cup.
The terms of the settlement of the
trackmen's strike are very satisfactory
to the strikers. Their reason forsirik-
iug was fur higher wages, but after the
si rike had been declared the trackmen
found that the 0. P. R. failed to recognize thoiu as a hody of organized labor.
This lo tbem was more disheartening
than the low scale of wages, hut the
constant delay uf trains aud several
serious accidents, which occurred to
trains on the main line, showed the (.'.
P. R. plainly that ii could nol do without the services of the wurkingman,
audit1 last I be great corporation was
c .inp-lled to yield to the wants nf the
trackmen, not by compromising mat*
lers hut by complying with every demand tbey mode, The terms conved
exi inclii le the reinstatement, of all the
hands reporiing for duly io tbeh'tiirn'i
cr posii ions and dwellings ; rules giving what was asked in ihe way of investigation in case of unjust treatment;
pay for Ihe lime lust if proven unjustly treated ; promotion hy seniority,
other things being equal; transportation twice a month lo market; half
rate on freight for supplies ; transporlalion lo any point ou lhe line, same

The death of William McKinley has
removed from Ihe United Slates nne
of her hest citizens and most just
minis. Born nf plain parents and
reared among simple folk, he rose to
the highest office in lhe gift of the
greatest republic the world has ever
known, simply liy his own merits.
His faithful at'en tion to the various
duties which he wus called upon tn
pei form throughout his career of uninterrupted advancement, called forth
the recognition of his fellow countrymen and leault.d In his election as
president. Notwithstanding the seri
ousnessof Ihe wounds lo which are
attributable his untimely end, tbe sad
news nf his death came as a sudden
shock to all. The puhlic mind had
settled down to the belief that Ihe
president was nut nf danger. Nothing
hut good news came from Buffalo re-
grtrding his conili'iuii. Kven up to
last Thursday morning tbe cheering
news was sent out that, he would recover, Twenty foiir hours later Ihe
country was thrown into a state of
anxiety by thn report thai the presi
dent's condition had taken a snddei
change for the worse, and later came
the sad news that he had pass ■_ away.
The shocking maenei in whioh death
came lo Mr. McKinley is all the more
sud, and is a poor requital fnr a life
thnt was spent, in the service of his
country. The assassination of President McKinley will he regarded with
Borrow throughout almost, the entire
world and perhaps more particularly
in this than in any olher country outside tlie United States, for during hi
presidency, I hpre has lieen a stronger
II* between Canada and the Republic
to the south of us than atany previous
time in the history nf the two countries. And the people of Canada have
only expressions nf sorrow that a mun
of his sterling worth should have been
■ removed from a sphere of usefulness,
and mourn wilh their American cousins in I he greal loss which Ihey have
sustained.
Patronize home industry. That
should be thn motto nf every citizen of
uny town that wishes to see the place
in which he lives prosper, The person
who derives his living from the patron
ago of iho public, depends on getting
Ihe greater share uf such patiimage
The Toronto Mail and Empire finds
tbat the returns from the west are thr
one bright spot in the census  It says:
"The hetter part of the census story
is the intimation that during the past
decade the population from Ihe Ontario iioundary westward to the Pacific
has increased by £3,486. We now
have 681,000 people in ihe West where
ihere were hut 52,000 in 1871, Thirty
yi-ios have multiplied the population
by eleven, and (he proo^ss nf |augqten
tation has merely commenced. We
have just scratched a part, and Ihal a
very small pari, of the fertile soil.
while the search for minerals has been
simply perfunctory.
'The good harvests of tbe plains, together wilb Ihe rich finds in the mouniaius, are justifying those Canadians
who from the Hrst thought well of
their own country. Now we have ex
perienced a steady growth under the
Western skies. While it is, perhaps,
not so rapid a growth as had been ex
pected or desired, it is nevertheless
hopeful for it points to still greater
progress iu the future. Increasing at
an equal rate during tbe next ten years
the prairie aud Pacific sections wnuld
l.oasi a million inhabitants. The addition of eighty llmiisaud to the North
wesl Territories brings the population
there up to 146,000, and warrants the
emancipation of that huge district
from the swaddling clothes of Ottawa
control and lis elevation to the provin
rial status. Under conditions of development much less striking Manitoba
became a province and Ihus enjoyed
complete local self government. Manitoba, wiih nearly a quarter of a million people, may also claim with fair
ness a forward lunve us regards school
lands Canada holds in trust for it.
There is no reason why ihat province
should not take charge of its educational endowment and administer it as
may seem liest,
But the advancement of British Col
uniliia by 02,000 is, if possible, the most
interesting of all the increases. The
sea of mnuntains has turned nut splen
didly. Few eastern people can appro
elate ita wealth. All through il, are
the vast mineral deposits, mingled
with excellent ranges for cattle, snd
valleys, the productiveness of which is
unequalled. The Pacific coast, wilh
its giant vegetation, its even climate,
its long summer, its rich soil, is practically our tropical seelion. While in
the aggregate the census llgures are
disappointing, those from the West
a-e calculated tv give ns relief not nnly
because Ihey serve to show that with
favorable conditions the rate of increase there ought to he kept up."
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kooten-
ay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.
