MONDAY. DECEMBER 31. 1900.
The Merchants' B ink of Halifax has
undergone a chaiiKe of name, and with
the beginning of the new year will do
lm im s under the name of the Royal
Brink of Camilla. There are eight
branches of the hank in British Colum
bia,
"The Victoria, Vancouver and East
ecu Kailway and Navigation Company
was t.o-jlay formally organized. The
question of the huilding of a coast to
Kootenay line is no longer a matter of
duuht or supposition, il ih now a plain
everyday business fact that the road
will be built. Up to the present time
all the work that has been done along
the line of perfecting arriiigeiiienta
for this road bis been under the old
syndicate agreement, but wilh the
organization now completed work will
l-egin in earnest and with as litlle de
lay as possihle. The new compuny is
so far practically a local concern as il
is in the hands of Vancouver, Victoria
and New Westminster capitalists,
with Alexander Ewing, New Westminster, W. L, Nicol, Vancouver, and
J. T. Bethuue, of White Horse, us the
Hrst board of directors."—Province,
Den. 28. Probably no news of a more
satisfactory nature to residents of the
Boundary country could have coiiip
during the last few days of the old
yenr than that contained in the above
paragraph. It has been the desire of
this section of British Columbia fm
some years to have railway connection
with const points by the route named,
and now it seems as though these de
sires weie to he gratified, and the
richest section of our Province to be
afforded all the advantages of a rail'
road, The new company will operate
under both Doniinion aud Provincial
charters, the Piovinuial Government,
being pledged lo reinstate the subsidy
of $4,000 pei mile for 3.10 miles, which
was removed some time ago.
As Tin? Advance goes to press the
last few hours of the living century
are quickly passing, and the nineteenth
century, which has witnessed to many
changes and stood for the rapid inarch
of civilization as no other century has
ever done, will soon be of the past.   Iu
looking back on the last hundred years
we are aware of many  innovations,
mechanical, scientific and otherwise,
that have tended to revolutionize the
world and better llieconillilou uf man
kind, in comparison  with which the
previous century seems very barren.
What  will bc the thoughts of those
who will be preparing Ihis up in date
journal for puhlic  perusal  when   the
coming hundred years have rolled by is
a milter of conjecture, but we are
nearly safe in saying lhat when such
lime dues arrive the editor, whoever
he may he, will not have to divide his
lime lietween writing editorials calculated to stir humanity to its most pro
found depths and furnish motive power for a Washington press.   In  this
connection  we are  struck  with the
thought that, on this, '.he last day of
the last year of the old century, hum-
aniiy. us represented hy tbe denizens
of British Columbia, should make the
resolution to .commence the new year
and the new century by becoming subscribers to this p ipular family periodical (no household is complete without

In the meantime Ihe fugitive left
Clark avenue anil run for lbe Columbia lodging house, which he entered
by the rear door and proceeded to his
room. The marshal lost sight of him
and afterward wenl to bed. Sheriff
Henry Walseman wns aroused by lhe
shots. He procured a lantern and
took up t he trail. This was an easy
matter, as there was fresh snow on
the ground. Shortly after leaving the
street Lamb fell into a small watercourse and got. mud on his clothes,
The sheriff wiib informed by the landlady of Ihe Columbia lhat a mini had
come iu the house about half an horn-
before and had gone to bed in a room
recently occupied hy a man named
Walker, but as she did not see him
she did not know who it was. The
sheriff found his man In bed apparently
sound asleep and look him tothe jail.
The mud was still fresh on his clothes.
This, together with the buy's story and
the statement of the guard inside the
pnitofflce that, the wouldbe robber had
one hand lhat wns minus several fingers, is fairly conclusive evidence of
guilt, the sheriff says. Lamb has a
bad reputation on account of alleged
crimes committed elsewhere, according
to the mai shal, but he has done nothing here, so far as known, of a criminal
character. He haa lieen a hanger on
ahout saloons and the associate of
toughs.
Young O'Brien rame here some
time since with his parents from
British Columbia. The worst, thai
can lie said of him ia that he associated
with the tough crowd, Had the rob

would have got t wo lett ers and a pack -

other talking machine at any price. It tings every kind of song, sacred, comic,
sentimental, patriotic, "Coon" songs, English, French and Scotch Songs, selections from Grand and Comic Operas, plays cake walks, waltzes, two-ste*is, marches,
in fact everything that can be played on any instrument or niimin-r of instruments

The Gram-o-phone is used and endorsed by the leading clergymen and
others throughout Canada.
