Engineer Rose Purposed Quitting
Life on Railway   for   Farm
Near Nelson Next Spring.
J. E. Annable received letters
from Medicine Hat last night
which add a pathetic chapter to
the story of the freight wreck-
near Dunmore Junction on the
morning of Saturday, September I, says the Nelson Canadian,
On lhe 21th of June last two
men enteral M. Annable's office
and Inquired about fruit lands.
They had seen a lot already but
nothing that exactly suited. Mr.
Amiable made an engagement
with them lo meet the 8 o'clock-
train with him the next morning
and visit land near Thrums belonging to W. Gibson.
Tho trip was made and the
visitors were satistied. Mr.
Oliver left for home that night,
Mr. Rose remaining to complete
a deal. He explained to Mr.
Annable that he was a C. P. R
engineer running out of medicine
Hal. Mr. Oliver was also in
the employ ol the railway company at Cranbrook. Oliver was
Rose's wife's brother.
On account of the uncertainty
and peril of railway life they
had decided to take up land and
turn farmers.
The property was hold at
£2500, but after some negotiation
Mr. Gibson agreed to accept
$210o, a small payment down,
#1000 on September 1, and the
balance in a your. The bargain
was struck: Mr. Rose arranged
for seed for next spring and returned to duty at Medicine Hat.
The letters received by Mr.
Annable informed him that his
two clients were killed in the
collision at Dunmore a week ago
last Saturday in a fatality of the
same character as those that
had turned his thoughts to the
land.
Mrs. Rose, who lost at one
stroke her husband and brother,
and has no living relations, asks
to be released from the purchase
contract. A draft for 81000, due
on September 1, had been bought
by Mr. Rose but not forwarded,
It will be endorsed to Mrs. Rose
by Mr. Anuuble and the amount
paid at the time ot the bargain
will probably also be returned to
the widow by Mr. Gibson.
The death of engineer Rose
was the most peculiar of all the
fatalities. He was not injured
at all in the collision and walked
back to the caboose. But ho
had inhaled the escaping steam:
acute inflammation set in and he
died of suffocation.

Looking To Canada.
Arthur Hirklbi'.'. who has many
interests in this district, and
especially in Kossland, returned
on Saturday eveuillg Irom London and leaves to-morrow for
Prince ton, says tin- Rossland
Miner of Tuesday the 7th inst.
Mr Hickling built the Hunk of
Toronto building, and is ulso
managing director of the com
pany owning the Princeton town
site.
Mr. Hickling says there is no
country attracting so much attention at the present time as
Canada, but it is difficult to gel
much financial support for
the raason that just now the
money market is extremely tight.
This is due in a measure to the
insurance companies having to
realise on first class securities,
in order to meet their losses on
the San Francisco fire, aud
secondly, to the fact that the
situating in Russia is so serious
that revolution is feared ut any
moment. This would involve
and be practically ruinous to
France, which country has
financed Russia for some years
past, and would result in a panic
affecting all countries. This de
pression, however, is not likely
to be of a long duration, as the
Russian question must be settled
one way or the other before long.
In speaking of the mining interest of the Kootenay. Mr. Hickling said one of the chief reasons
for the lack of attention is the
limited number of mines quoted
onthe London market. The two
LeRois being really the only ones
He thought it would be most
advantageous, not only to the
camp, but to tho company itself,
if the consolidated company obtained a quotation for their shares
on the London stock exchange.
The enormous losses sustained
by investors in mines in Soutli
Africa have caused s*ome of the
leading financiers to look round,
and they are quite ready to
transfer their interest to this
country, if they could meet with
substantial bona fide propositions.

2. Thou shalt patronize thy

not be driven from their homes
to find bread for their little ones.
Thou shalt also consider him as
thy neighbor, above all of them
that dwelleth in a strange town.
4. Thou shalt not ask for
credit as the goods cost much
money and the merchant's brain
is burdened with bills. His
children clamour daily for bread,
and his wife abideth at home for
lack of such raiment as adorneth
her sister. Blessed, yea, thrice
blessed is thu man that pays
cash.
5. Thou shall not ask for reduced prices for thine "Influence"
for behold guile is in thine heart
and the merchant readeth it like
an open book, he latigliuth thee
to scorn and shouteth to his clerks
"ha, ha!"
