carrying passengers who came to
Canada on the Pretorian of the Allan

nd carried people from Scotlan
bound for the west.
The train consisted of baggage am
mail cars, three colonist, one firs.
class, two toursts, a dine;* and a
Pulliran car. Two o: the colon! !i
cars turned completely over and ia
on their sides in the Ottawa river. It

___aB3Scv-3-_'YinIn,  was in  one en tin;
colonist cafs which t>ppled into tut
river, and was in the act of punch,n
a ticket. He escaped with a dis!o;at
• d shoulder, and was the only n.em
ber of the crew injured.
CRIES OF DYING.
From the stories told by passengers
on the train and by eye-witnesses wh
resile at tbe McKellar townsiu., the
rural subdivision just in the rear o.
which the accident occurred, thai train
wns travelling at the rate of about
25 miles an hour. ( hildren and wo
men in the enrs were waving to people along the track when auddely. th.'
cars began to rock and the train to
twist. The next instant there was ■
crash aB the centre of the train lef.
the in ns, and then the cries of th.
injured and dying.
FALL  INTO  RIVER.
The engine, baggage and mail cars,
with one of the colonit-t cars, remained on the rails. The next two cars
were colonists and both toppled into
the river, one turning over twice,
while th? second simply shot on* its
true a md fell on its side. These
two cars broke from thc o.hera, th'
, rat class, which followed, rumainlng
i n the railroad bed with its nose
pointing toward tie river. Tho tour
ist enrs, which were next, went to
the side farthest from the il er and
remuiued tilted at an angle of nbout
4"i degrees. The din ng car left the
rails, but remained pmctical.y in a
straight line, while the Pullmnn cur,
which  was last,    had  only    ts  front
trucks off the rails.
RUSHED  TO   HOSPITALS.
Messages were sent to the city for
help, and in a short time there were
many volunteers with motor ambulances, doctors and nurses. As thc
cars were not demolished, It was a
Comparatively e-asy mult-r to get out
the injured, and they were Immediately rushed in motor curs to the eity
hospitals. The Canadian Pacific railway otticials in Ottawa despatch,* I
medical men and others tn the scene
of the accident as roon As posslbh

Wrecking  crews  from  O.tnwa   an
Smiths Falls were promptly on hand,
and it is said that the track will be
clear for traffic early toxorrow. The
tra'n for Tor nto was sj'nt around ib
way of  Memptville.    There  was rc-
markally little pnnlc among the pes
seugers.     'lhe  Russians  toot   things
stolidly, whi.e the British im mi gran*
showed their breed by those who es
Captd or who were only slightly in*

extricate themselves. Those wbo were
njured bore up most pluc'.tily   attar
the tirst alarmed cried, and their grit
wa-i  eotnmented  upon   by  phjs cians
and others.   There were many  path*
stic  scenes  as    women   and   children
uoinir to j< in their h isbands and fath
ers, or whole families   going to th
west, were removed in.ured,       .Some
members who were inured were hurried to the hospitnls ko quickly that
th ir  relatives  did  not  know   where
they had gone.
HURLED AGAINST CARS.
Most of the deaths were caused by
the people being hurled aga'n-rt th-
sides of tbe cars when they toppled
by drownin?. one little boy was
drowned, having been hurled throigb
a window into the river. One woman
and a toy. who were apparently leaning out ef the window were caught
underneath, and their bodies were the
the last ta he removed. While the two
three feet of water where th'-y fell,
it is not thought there are any bodies
when have not been recovered.

Standardizing all Cars
Ottawa.—Alternative order suggest
ed by Ohairmao Drayton of the rail
way commission us to the standard
ization of the beliht of freight cars
to thirteen feet six inche. on lines
under the jurisdiction of the railway
commission, raised s.ime olijewtions
on the trroiind of discrimination this
afternoon.
The proposal to limit th-! height <>f
cars has for its object tne safeguard'
ing of tbe lives id trainmen who are
compelled at times to walk along the
rcofs e>f cars. The question was discussed at great length. The chair
man '."inJilly suggested that an orcH
should be made that no freight ear
on any line under the Jurisdiction n
the railway commission Bhould be
higher than 13 feet, G Inches. He
abo suggested that tbe rei rtctlon
'should apply to cars loaded with
freight originating in any point iu
Canada and destined for any point in
thc United States or vice* versa.
DALRYMPLE OBJECTS.
Vice  President    Da'rympte    of the
Orand Trunk, objected to the a;
rungement, on the ground that it
would prc\ent the sending back of
cars ol larger size which bid come
from th,' United States unless th >y
were sent back empty. Thc commission declared that such cats should
not he ..d.iiitti-ii at all in the tlrst
place. However, he thought that
part of tbe order might be omitted.
James   E,   Walsh,   traffic expert  for
the Canadian manuf icturers, point ■.
mt at this juncture that the preven- j
tion of Cnnadlnn manufacturers and
shippers from usim: the large cars,
while the United states shippers were
allowed to USJ the high mr would
ia--.. a inwer rate than the Canadian
hip per who wns to be nsttict'd. In
it her words the mini mum car load
rates are based on the length of ears
and not ou the cubical capacity so
that the sum total paid by the Ci n
udiun ship]er ic carload would ho
larger tli Ml  Unit   paid by  the user ol
thc high cm. The American shlppoi
lilppin.'  to  Cnnadlnn  points  would j
have tbe advantage over the Ca:i..-
lian shipper to Blmllnr points.

Lecture on Explosives
A most cnterta nin«; and Instructive
lecture was delivered [n the Railway
Y. M. C, A. lust night by Col. Tay-
I r Ol Lha International Railway As-
socia'ion. The attendance was not
what it should have been, cOnstde Ing
the eminence of tbe speaker and the
impoit nco of th- siiuject, which was
'■Safe Handling of High Explosives."
Col. Taylor is a fluent speaker, has
a pleasant snd expressive lullvery
and a th .[■.,u..|1 krujcl d. ■ of h s sttb-

The standard f*>t railroad nen Is
becoming higher from time to time.
Only int-n wbo are men are want.-d,
men in the highest sense ol thi wont
as tbey have to give their highest
and best. Ihey have to bo efficient,
devoted, loyal, ambitious aud senl-
oub. No men an* wanted who nre
only llvintj on tio pay-roll fro:n ono
payday to the next, Aim hive no
ambition, no em uiat on beyond that,
The record on both aid s of tbe
line is bad regard ng dis eter and It
is caused by Carelessness and lgnor-
aaee. No man can cull himself a
railroad man W he does n it know nil
about bis job and it is for the pur*

line that the rallrod companies had
.one to the trouble aad expense of
giving them tins lecture free in most
of the important centres over this
Ci ntinent.
A man who docs not know how to
handle high explosives la a dangerous
man to himself, to his fellow employees, to those dependent on him,
to the public at large and to the
company who employs bim. Many
instances Illustrated by actual photographs were shown how carelessness In handling might hive resulted
in dreadful loss ol life and property
and information given of Bomo of the
dreadful results of such carelessness
mid Ignorance.
Pictures of the propel methods ol
parkins and handling and the difter-
ent kinds of labels Indicating tbo
cmlriits were shown in color also
charts showing precautions to bo
taken in shipping ami photos of actual explosions. The meeting ter
mlnated at 2_ o'clock, after having

How Much of Your Road Money is
Spent in Filling RuU?
TF the millions ol dollar, that have been spent repairing wori:-
out, washed-out streets and roads had been usedto build
more miles of good highways, fewer farmers would now be
wasting valuable time and money taking "round-about" routes
to town.
FIRST cost of an ordinary dirt or macadam road is usually
only a "starter," The cost of upkeep soon equals that
first cost and there is always an ever-increasing annual expense
for repairs. The worst feature of il it that'such a road is
never a really first-class highway.
TN estimating the cost of a road you should include the ex-
*■ pense of keeping it in good condition for at least twenty
years. If you don't, you're figuring on the first payment for
ibat road, only. And the remaining payments arc as certain
as taxes. Tiie upkeep cost of concrete roads is practically
nothing.

Has Marvellous Escape.
A veteran engine-driver of Porto*
DOllO, near ICdiliburgh, luul a marvellous escape from death iu Portobelio
Station, not long ago. He was coming off duty from Portobelio (ioods
Yard, accompanied liy his stoker and
hurried ncross the lines to tbe island
platform In order to catch tho train
for Ptershill uud Edinburgh. Just at
that moment, a light engine was coming from Edinburgh direction. The
engineer got confused, thinking it.
wns on the outer express route, ami
thought he would cleat*. The stoker
did not cross, nnd shouted to his
mate, wbo, however, crossed and
scrambled n*> on the platform. Ills
legs were still projecting over tho
edge of Hie wall wheu the engine
was upon him, aud to the horror of
thoso on the platform, the buffer
beam struck his loot und whirled
him on to tin. platform surface. He
was nelped to lila feet, and taken Into
tho stat Ion master's office, where ho
com plained of pain in his foot, but
was otherwise uninjured.

Hibernation of Mosquitoes.
Dr. Howard, of ihe United Slates
department of agriculture, who probably knows us much of tbe mosquito
and ita habits as any other man in
the world, contends that this cosmopolitan pest doea not necessarily perish with the coming of winter. On
tho contrary, mosquitoes have heen
observed to hibernate, adult specimens living from November until tbe
succeeding April or May with all their
powers of torment unimpowered, although their activity ia suspended In
winter. The mosquito needs but little food and It ia the female that
thirsts for blood, the males contenting themselves with water and veg-
i ctable fluids. The fact tbat. mosquitoes are often found upon dry prairies many miles from water is ascribed to the longevity of the adults of
certain species which enables them
to survive seasons of drought Rail-
roads Jiave heen responsible for tbe
transmission of mosquitos into regions wliere tbey were previously rare.

"I got perfect results from Dodd's

"My sickness started from a

limbs would swell.
"Thon rheumatism set In and neuralgia, backache, headache and heart

"Finally, wheu Bright. Disease had

Water Cannot Harm.
The people of Limekilns and Char-
lestown, Flfeshlre, nre singing the
praises of Captain John Barber, a
native of the former village, and aged
more than eighty years. A little child
fell off the Old Pier at Limekilns,
not long ago, and the tide was carrying him seaward when the attention
of Captain Barber was called to the
hoy's perilous situation, Without any
hesitation the captain went into the
water until he was about breast high
and succeeded In bringing the lad to
shore. On being afterwards offered
a glasB of brandy as a preventive of
a chill, Mio aged captain exclaimed-—
"What, do you think the water will
do me any harm?" On the gallantry
of a man of his age being commended, he declared that he would not be
ohl until he was ninety.
He  Wouldn't Spoil  Business
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, at a dinner
in Washington, discussed those ex*
ports who would urge the brewers of
America to make beer out of cabbage leaves -
"The cabbage leave beer advocate,"
said Dr. Wily, "cares nothing, It is
evident, for tiie welfare of tho human
stomach. His attitude Is exactly tha*;
ol a man in black I saw the other day.
".•\s this man In black was walking
along one of our streets, a beggar
whined plteonsly in his ear:—
" 'Would you give a poor feller a
dime to save his life boss?"
"'Certainly not!" the man In black
eplied. Certainly, not! I'm an undertaker, sir."—Detroit Free Press.
The  Farmer  With a  Pay Day
The Importation of milk and cream
luto Manitoba from across tho United
States line ls another strong argument in favor of mixed farming, and,
particularly dairying.
The scarcity of milk tn Winnipeg
has necessitated (he sending to tho
United Siates dairymen for needed
supplies, and the clly has bcen receiving GOO to 1000 pounds of cream
dally, besides large shipments of milk,
The Winnipeg dairies are even now
employing buyers to travel the country und purchase supplies for cash.
A similar condition exists nbout
Kdmouton, Calgnry nnd Lethbrldge,
an well as olher cities in tho Province
of Alberta, and tho milk problem will
become a serious one in time unless
more farmers go Into dairying.
Tho attention or the tanners of
Western Canada is being called to
tho positive necessity for mixed farming by the International Dry-Farming
Congress. Ai its big convention to
be held at Lethbrldge, October 21-
20, one of tho features will be addresses and discussions on mixed
farming by some of the ablest aud
most far-sighted railroad magnates
and agricultural experts.
The grain fanner only gels a payday onco a year—and somo years the
paymaster doesn't come around at all
-while n dairy la a constant sou
of revenue. Whenever there Is a erop
failure tho prospects, with a long BO
vere winter ahead, nro generally dubious, but. the fanner who has a fow
cows and other live stock doesn't
have to worry —he's on a steady
payroll.
Rain Miter.
Rain water ls not always pure or
nearly so, for under unusual conditions lt brings down with it various
small bodies present In tho atmosphere. Thus there nro "blood rain,"
due to the presence of vast number*?
of the minute organism Haemato-
coccus, and "sulphur rain," contain
ing pollen grains of pines when these
nre set freo nbout the end of May.
During recent gales lt was found
that rain falling In tbe midlands consisted of strong brine, leaving a salt
nomstation on windows and wall-
after evaporation- Apparently tne
sea spray had been carried by the
high wind as far as seventy miles
inland before coming down as rain.—

At the directors' meeting of the Cranbrook Agricultural Assoriatton
it surprise paciu-t was presented to the meeting, Mr. j. v. Una
iiutioiinced that he had received ;. t legram trom our local member in the house, Mr, T, 1) Caven, to the e feet tbat the pro
vlncia) Government hns made the Association n grant t ( 41,000.00
town itl b helplnp to d fray the expenses of repairing the damage done t >
the Exhibition Buildings and grounds. This news was somewhat gratify
ing to the committee, as with ono thing nnd anoth-r they ato having tin
up-hill fight of It just uow, Th trc me constant requests coming in to
th- manager, P. Russell, for Prize Lists, which bespeak for itself tly in
torest being created in the Fall Fair. From now on to September 18th
and 19th, the days of the Fair, everyone do their hest in helping to
make tho Pair as widely known a** possible, and not this onlv. but the
manager is always open to receiving any suggestions which may hei
make the Fair this year n larger BUCCtss and to reap
district, than ever before.
.Now that the City authorities have, in a certain measure, succeeded
in persuading the owners, ur inha I tents of property, to have their
yards and gardens cleaned it would be well to suggest that the city go
one step further to prevent the regatbering of waste products at tuu
back of all properties, We would s if each yi rd and the team
he placed close to the gate the streets, in its spate time
used at present for sprinkling nds ot thi City Hnd collecting tYis
be utilized in going the ro' rounds of the City and collecting tins
waste material and taking it out to the dumping grounds and having tbe
same burnt. The benefits from some such course would he manifold U
would tend first of all to create cleanliness tn the hearts Jt the inhabitants, it would do away with all untidiness in our alleys, nnd ato .all
it would be the means of warding off all possibilities o' disea.se that are
ever | r stnt from the stench*!- formed from th_u> waste gatherings. On the otl er h md every hoU» hobier ti is his o: ber
duty to perfcrm and we would tike tb emphashe the fact
that without the full co-operation o' the latter the city's <nde.i o: to
ward hav ng n clean . ity is futll ai <1 practically nil in its effectiveness.
So therefore, it If up to you to see that ail waste pan.-) and ashes, and
other wastes which are to be thrown away be. as far as possible, thrown
in one place and not distributed all over the  yards.
.John D, Rockefeller forty year? aso believed in the future of his
country, bought oil on a big ecile, nnd became the wo.ll's richest man.
Andrew Carnegie says he borrowed every cent he could get to invest in
his steel mill, and later sold out for something like three hundred millions. J. P, Morgan himself avowed that he was always a "bull on the
country," and he died leaving a great name in the financial world and a
monumental fortune.
Bismark was the prince of optimists, and the Herman Empire is the
sequel. In his own day William Pitt outshone every other Englishman
in the belief in his country's coming gretitnes.s, and to him more than to
any other one man can he given credit for an empire on whose dominions the sun never sets.
Every prospector who ever tramped the hills of this glorious Kootenay was an optimist. There are some of the typical sort in our
midst right now, nnd, while they have not the price of a meal in their
pockets, they believe. In the depth of their hearts that, the prospect they
havc been nursing for years will yield them millions. Content to spend
nine months n lard work with a band drill, with no fare but bacon and
Hour, or such as they can pack upon their backs, they come to town
with enthusiasm oozing out of them. A little lubricant, helps the flow
at times, but who ever knew these old characters to back up or for a
moment lose faith In their biddings. Theirs is a splendid example in optimism for some of our merchants and others who voice ffifllr nonius
about those who are striving to develop and produre, no matter in what
line. The Christian religion itself is founded on optimism, as is everv
other gr-ftt rellgiob. Omit faith from them nnd tbe corner stone is
gone. When you have troubles or doubts as to the future of th e great
country juut think of the tireless, persistent, hopeful and1 o; ti-nistii- prospectors wbo never lose hope and are always willing to wait (or what
they are sure Is buried in the claims they have staked.—Star.
STREETS WE LIKE TO LIVE ON.
Most Cnnutlinu cities and towns are spending too much money on
their residential streets. Canadians arc possessed of the idea that the
whole width of a high-class residential Btreet must bc pnved. This idea
would not prevail long if people here could but get a glimpse of the residential streets In English garden Miburbs, where far more serviceable
and far more beautiful streets me maintained at only a fraction of tbj
cost of those in Canada.
Canadians wrongly assume that residential streets are to be used to*
heavy traflic and pave them with expensive pavements from sidewalk to
sidewalk. As a matter of fact, the traffic on a residential street consists only of light delivery waggons and a fow cnrriagiB. The volume
of truffle is so small that, when we really come to think it over, it. is a
wonder why wo consider fully 50 '.'i. of the width of a (id ft. street nec-
ccsury to accommodate it. tjuite a part from the expense of construction
and maintenance, a pavement on this wide roadway has thc additional
disadvantage of being noisy, ot reflecting a burning heat in summer timo
und of re.(Hiring the attention of the sprinkling cart too often (or it takes
but a few moments tor tbe water to dry up on a hot asphalt pavement.
Most of all, auch a street is not beautiful.
Why not adopt the type 0f residential street used by older countries
who have had greater experience in these matters than we. To Illustrate
this, a 60 ft. street designed iu this approved manner is given. Tho
roadway, though only 2*1 feet wide, ls wide enough to accommodate all
the trattic. Macadam, instead of asphalt, is used ror pitvin-r it. This is
cheaper, cooler, less noisy, requires less sprinkling and is much more satisfactory in every way. On each Bide it is flanked by a strip of grass
ten feet wide, in which a row of shade trees is planted. These Hh ide bo u
the roadway and the sidewalk, which runs on the other side of the grassy
strip. A shady street like this throws a restful
business man on his return from tli,. day's work,
that will keep
'a bower quiet  for us, find n sleep
Full of sweet dreams and health and  qUlet   breathing." --M..1 .P

Secret ofjjig Trees
In the da.s ol the Prophet Elijah
sore famine ulllictcd thc land ol Palestine. No rnin tel, the broo:s ran
dry, nnd dire distress prevailed. "Go
through thc land," aaid King Ahub
to the Prophet Obntllnh, "unto all
the founts na ot wnter and unto all
the brooks; perndventiire we may
lind grann and snve thc hoisjs and
the mules alive, that we lose not all
the beasts." When Obndiah wen
forth In search of forage t.e fell in
with his chief Elijah, ai.d brought
him to A hah, who greeted him as the
trouhler of Israel. " Then Blljl h prayed for rnin, according to the Bible
story, nnd the famine wns stayed.
Prom thia famine ln I'al.-st.int-, some
H70 yenrs before Christ, to thc lor
cwts of the Sierra Nevadas, in th -
twentieth century, In a fnr cry, but
the connecting link between the pnsl
nd tbe present, betwe. n tbe ancient
cast and thc modern West, Is found
in the lug trees of Gallfointn, tbe
liuge anodes known ns Sequoia Wash-
nttonla.
In a book entitled "The Secret ol
ihe Big Trees," by Kllswo tn Huntington, recently publl he.l, It Is
shown that the growth rings in th*
I.i*. trees of Cul.lornla indicate thai
in general thc same set|lltn.e of ell
mntic changes took place in Oni tor-
nla and Asia Minor. Curves indicating climatic conditions in Oaliti rnin

As an encouragement to the- Children to busy themaelvos tn the preparation of those essays, tho president of the Canadian Highway Association, Mr. W, -J. Kerr, Is offering
valuable gold, silver and silver gilt
medals, and also a souvenir silver
pin to all competitors whose paper
attains e. certain standard of merit.
While it should not be necessary
for this incentive to interest the
young people of Canada iu Cood
Roads, and their relation to the well-
being of the country- the fact remains
that, in tbis, as In otber things, some
Inducement is often necessary lu order to awaken the younger generation to tho economic needs of this
country.

Elghtoon months' Imprisonment,
with hard labor, waa the aotitonco recently given to a man in London,
thirty-seven years old, who in three
.yeara has "inked" about two hundred

make claim to havo heen injured
through the negligence of the persons
whom he made his victims. Had the
cases come into court he would bnve
been detected. His deception was
favored by n malformed wrist, which
ho represented as duo to the accident.
A confederate accompanied hltn,
making notes of each accident, with
the particulars of the name and address of those from whom the money
was to be obtained. Some years ago
a man in this city received damages
afier falling through an open grating In a sidewalk and breaking all

such as the elephant, the dog. the
bull; bur it would seem a thankless
undertaking to ascertain whether the
ant bas a memory. Nevertheless, a
scientist. In South America thinks lie
has succeeded. Isolating two of the
largest species of tropical ants lie

Into another compartment. Over
this slant, when the food was not
there, he placed n crimson cord and
the anis very soon learned ta interpret, the signal und never attempted
to climb over It. Thinking, after a
time, that there might be something
in the color thnt repelled them, automatically, as ihe bull Is affected unpleasantly by red, he replaced the
red cord by cords of varying colors,
always with the same result after the
ants had made a few excursions over
the slant and come back hungry.
Then, be tried plain cloth, and even
paper but the result was invariably
Ibe snme. After a number of trials
the tints refused to climb tho slam
when there was uny sort of a "signal."
Finally, the scientist reversed lhe
signal, having food beyond tbe slant
only when it was vl&lblo, and after
an Infinite number ol' trials the ants
accommodated themselves to tho
change.
Canaries in Mines.
The use of the canary as a warner
of the existence of foul air iu a mine
has long been familiar iu this country. A similar use Is-uow mnde of
ii on the other side of the Atlantic.
It was first of all thus used after the
explosion ut Cross Mountain Mine,
Brldevllle, Tenn. it esc tiers with machines for making oxygen on their
backs went ilrst. currying canaries in
cages. They were followed hy others
who were unprotected. When tho
wings of the canaries were seen to
droop the latter turned back. lt. was
thus known that the air was unfit for
them to breathe.

CZAR'S  SON WAS 6HOX
New  Light Thrown  Upon the  Mysterious lllnesa of the Llttlt
Cearvftoh
Tho Czar's eight year old heir,
hia only son, Is recovering from his
illness, but tho mystery maintained
by lho Russian court and pollco dally
deepen?.
Tlio report ot an attempt on his llfo
In tho imperial yacht Standart ls now
given in Paris with circumstantial detail. Tho explanation of tho ndmlr-
nl'fl suicide, followed by the attempted sulctdo of a girl wl-tu whom ho hud
relations, is sold to be that tho girl,
a revolutionary, used lier Influence
with tho admiral to secure tho presence of a nihilist in tho crow. Tho
other conflicting accounts ot tho ill-
nous or accident of thn czar's son as-
oriho It to a fall from a pony, or a
bicycle, or a eper in tho yacht, an
accident in Ills bath, a hemorrhage,
kidney disease, or peritonitis, in-
flamattau of tho mombrano lining
of t.ho Intestines,
Tho story accepted here as true ls
that the princo was phot with n
Browning pistol, and ho owed his
life to tho fact that when Iio snw nn
individual approaching witb n pistol
pointed at him ho attempted to escape, But Ills assailant wan too quloll
nnd in tho Btart led boy turned to one
Bide ho tired and tho bullet Inflicted
a deep wound In the lower part of
tho abdomen.
in tho confusion Ute person whn had
fired slid down a ropo over tbo sitlo
of tiio Standart unit escaped either
In a boat or by swimming ashore.
Ko has succeeded In getting out of
Russia, It was through his confession that tho attempt became
known oui nldo court otroles,
Admiral ChaglA was not on bonrd
tho yacht when tho prlnco was
wounded, Tlio role played by tho
girl student, Hetai Soqoloff, who tried
to commit suicide after tho admiral's
suloldo and to whom ho lott a sum
or money in his will, is moro serious
than 1ms been hinted at. umi in view
of her responsibility in tlio matter it
i3 perhaps not surprising that slie attempted her life.
It ia nccei-sary to recall that In
1883, the year following tho assassin-
In ihe crisp, bright October air. lhe
sweet young 1 nlng had been fur a drivo

Oh, mother, sho cried, Tom and T
had ttie narrowest eseapo from au
awful accident. The horso nearly
bolted und I don't know what would
have happened.
We wero going through a narrow
lane when, -ull of u sudden a pheasant
got up from 'lie hedge and Hew across
the horse's head and boforo Tom could
grasp the reins—
Er, enqtlreii the young brother-—
wasn't ho holding them then?
And It tool; a long time to ox pin In

THE   FREIGHT  RATE   ENQUIRY
Further Poslpo.-icment    of    Proceedings Bcfoee the Railway Board
Thn enquiry into  western   fn igh*'
freight rates at Ottawa ha-, be i  fur-l
ther postponed, upon the application
of the counsel for BUBkntcUewe    an!
Alhorta,  who retiutro  more tlu	
digest the mass ot figures pri eated
by tlm railway companies.
The exhibits laid before the Itail.vav
Hoard consist of several volumes of
ilglll'Gfl, so Hint the beat it now spa ,v .-
Is capable of Is to set forth aa Impartially us It can tho fuels whloh lhcy
appear to establish beyond reasonable
doubt,
The Winnipeg Heard of Trade and
other boards wore evidently iu error
in saying that rates out ol Winnipeg,
liad net been reduced siueo 1886. when
sllr William Van Horllo pledged himself that thoy would diminish as the
volume of trnfllo increased.
A book of 7a pagOB Is det-eitd lo
showing tho numerous reductions that
liavo been made since Ihen. As regards whoat, for Instance, lhe f'n-i-
-idlun Paollio rate from Winnipeg to
Lake Superior has been redneeil from
28 cents per 100 pounds It. 10 cenls,
that is, from 17 ta 0 cenls per:
bushel.
It Is not the case thai rates la the
Canadian West are so much higher
than In tho adjacent Htates as to constitute a serious handicap on the Canadian settler.
The exhibits go to prove that our
Western rates are on tin* whole lower
than ihose iu Mlnnosota, North Dakota, South Dalioln, Kobraska, Montana and Wyoming, although popnla-
Hon l-l greater and traffic more deine
over thero Hutu with tis.
It was a mistake to assert that rates
on lhe Soo Hue, u road In tile United
,-*tates controlled by the Canadian
Paolflc, wero considerably lotver than
tho Canadian Pacific rates In the Can
tidian Wcit.
Tiie experts sny lt might -r.-ll bo
(hat an American read owned by the]
Canadian Paclfla served a territory
ho much older mid more thickly popii-
i.-Lj titan ours as lo warrant the
company in granting lower rales than
those wn enjoy without Incurring nnv
moral blomo; precisely us the owners!
of a Winnipeg Journnl might, fo: much
iho same rouson, produce a better
newspaper ut Chicago or New York
without charging inoro for it to th-
lunn on tho atreet. ,\i any rate, so
far us the rates on thc Soo rond nro
concerned, Ih.-y nro not lower hut
higher than the rales in the Canadian
West.
It was commonly asser'ed and h.-,
