Tin- invtwtigation of ilu- Kust
Kootonay land suaudal is pi^ogn^sH-
Ing with commendable rapidity at
Victoria and additional fie-ls are
lieing gleaned that, up to the pies-
ent time, tends to inereuse the
mystery of the alleged deals thai
were on the boards al lhe time Ihai
.Minister Wells returned from Aluu-
ireal. The further examination of
(i. Mah, Brown, who otticintodas
executive ttgeiit for tho C. P, B, in
British Cojmuliin for a uiuuberul'
years, is bringing aliout a complete
exoneration of Mr. Wells, as il
now seems lhat lhe minister of
public works was really tho direct
means of holding the grtlllts to the
two blocks in this district from the
<\ P. R. by refusing to deliver tho
grants either to Brown or President Shjiughiu'ssey. Mr. Brown,
while ou the stand Monday, swore
to the following statement bearing
upon this point)
•'After Wells returned from .Montreal I continued pressing him as
well us Duiisiuuir and KU-t'ts for
delivery of the grants. The grants
were withheld nevertheless; Then-
is no possible doubt now that the
person who prevented the delivery
was Wells. There was nn question
whatever but that it was he who
Stood lietween the province itud the
railway eoiUVJnuy preventing the
completion of the transaction."
John Houston, monitor from the
Nelson district, iu his paper, the
Tribune, has ihis to say of Mr.
Wells' part iu the transaelion:
Klierts cannot remain in the government, for he clearly showed he
was opposed to the passage of the
lull, He should have resigned the
day the bill was introduced and
stuod by his guns, Wells, howuv*
ci* miii-li he  muy  Ih- censured fur
tryillg tu keep the deal   ipliel lifter
he had bloek.il it. must Ih* given
credit for returning the crown
grants to the province, for had lie
lieen what his enemies say he is.
the erown grants Mould now be in
possession of tho Canadian Pacilic
Kailwiiy company.
I iui thero ts evidently Bomethlug
back of the whole movement, something  that, when   brought   lo the
rfaee, will disclose the whole
transaction, and involve a number
of prominent men in the toils.
This is what the investigating committee is after but il is yet a question whether it will be brought out.
When developments get too close
Influences may 1»* brought lo tour
that will terminate lhe Investigation iu a manner ihai will render
the work null and void. Thu people of British Columbia would like
lo see the rottenness. If I here lie
any, uncovered and lhe guilty ones

of iho government, high officials of
the (J. P. K., or hoth. Bid in mat-
tors of this kind ihe people havo
little t<> way until it comes to elections, and then they too often forget the past.
Mr. Brown's memory, according
to the report iu the Nelson News,
is very faulty, Although the leading representative of the ('. P. R.
ho apparently forgot his connection
with several important movements
that culminated in the issuing uf
the grants to his company. Sir
Thomas Shatighnessey has promised to lie in Victoria next Monday
to testify ns to his knowledge of
the transactions but it is not anticipated that there will bo anything startling in his testimony,

Does Cranbrook Lack Public Spirit.
Editor Herald: It has struck
mo many times daring my residence iu this town that L'rnnbruok,
na a town, lacks public spirit, and
lacks it badly. A public meeting
is a thing almost unknown, and
why'' Because it is sn hard to get
people together, A board of trade
meeting will only [gather together
Winn* six or oighl and a fin* meeting less.
In saying that Craubrook lacks
public spirit I do nut wish to Ut
understood as meaning lack uf pub.
lie spirit frum a financial puiot uf
view, as I know very well how
ready I'ranbruuk people always are
to put their hands iu their pockets
for anything for the good ofthe
town: but 1 menu in the matter ut'
getting together and discussiug
matters of vital inn-rest to the town
ami to the district.
I fancy, sir. that this hick uf
public spirit 1 call il public spirit
fur want of a totter word -is duo
in a great measure to the fnet that
our citizens generally do not Appreciate its importance. They do
not realize what ii -strong "Pull to-
gethcr" can do and has dune fur
other places. We do not have to
go a thousand miles from home lu
see what it has done and is doing.
If there was half as much pull together iu t'rnnhmuk ns then- is iu
other towns I might name nothing
could hold us.
I. thought. Mr. Editor, by thus
addressing myself to yon it might
start the lull rolling and tlmtndis-
etission on this, t think, vory important point might lie started iu
your col Urns v,:t!i great advantage
to ull. By thia means the views of
a good mauy [might be nirod and
thus give us all sonn- pointers, I
feel sure that what we want is s
pull together.

George Paquin, the French chef
who has lieen iu charge of the
Australian hotel kitchen at Morrissey the past eight mouths, will
open a restaurant in the new town
uf Morrissey Mines, Mr. Paqttin
is known from Rossland to Fernie
as a cook par excellence, nnd he
can cater in seven different languages iu a manner satisfactory to
all. A meal prepared by Paquin
is a gastronomic dream that lulls
one into a state of blissful complacency and leaves the mind at rest,
the heart easy and the stomach
content. Consequently as a caterer
he will lie a success from the start.

Considering the fact thai nt lie-
lime of publication then, was no

Where   is   K. ('.   Smilh   then

if the evidence produced before
thc Oliver committee ul Victoria is
reported  correctly, it ph s Mr.
Wells iii ii bad light, and it is due
the people and liis own reputation
to make a full explanation of the
deal referred to by Mr, Duusuinir.
If Mr. WelU has ncted honorably
iu this mutter, In* should expose
the guilty parlies, ami thus protect himself. As il business man.
-Mr. Wells was nu honorable man.
uml he should not allow 111.' work
„f others to besmirch his character
as a legislator, Mr, Wells and
others connected witli the government should toll all Ihey know,    ll
would have a lend y to place lhe
blame where il belongs. There is
no reason why .Mt*. Wells should
carry the burden if ii properly belongs on other shoulders,
.lo,-. Martin did not hesitate lu
put himself right before lite pen.

Ii is to la* hoped that nil danger
at the lown of Frank will soon be
a thing of the past ami tin* town

A bill has lieeu introduced into
the Diiniiiiun pai-limeiit that is  ill.
most an e\aet    int.-rpnrl  of the
bill thai was crashed in tlm slide
legislature in Washington lasl
winter, ll provides for unusual
lowers foracompany that pui*|»ises
to virtually capture thc Columbia
river. It would mean tlllll every
small lumlier denier on the river
would In- compelled lo pay tribute
to this .me company.   If parlii t
is wise it will never grant such u
concession to any company. The
power would create an obnoxioiiR
and dangerous monopoly.
That   (Jiiinoy   investigation   is
really very ti    when compared
with the British  Col bin brand.
It looks to the .smelter people as
if ,T. H. Tonkin is doing what

presses ■.•nun' a spiteful ring of the tele-
phone. It was Somorby, the cub reporter, who was an Independent seoul,
as he chose to cnll himself, a man
looking for a clllllico lo distinguish
himself.
Somerby said, "Police have just
found hody of murdered man in the
ashpit alley"-*
"Thank God!" fervently ojnculntod
Gllmy.
"Kli!  What's thai you snyV"
"Got it—liny a paper ami go home
nnd read it-gel some sleep and see If
you can't get some news."
And Somerby hung up lhe receiver In
n hotel half a mile away and brushed
away something like n tear of disappointment, fm- his clianco to distinguish himself had not yet como.

As If in answer to his wish, the mysterious Individual glided in. more wan,
i e seedy mul more wild eyed than
before. He had another good scoop,
"hint V. sir; only n V."
This lime if was a yachting accident
which had huppi'tietl at a nearby summer resort, 'fen people wero drowned,
nil well known. K was u terrible catastrophe, wiih news in every line.
Gllmy fairly danced when lie saw it.
He pulled out lhe V and another dollar with It. He walked liotlio on air
that inuming, singing praises of Hie
scoop lieuil and bis own good judgment.
When he awoke from peaceful slnui-
hi'is un.l languidly reached fm* ilm
 i edition of a rival sheet which
had (lown In over tbu transom, in hi"
astonishment, dismay and almost nausea he read au array of biting sureasiu
to ihe effect ihut the yachting nccidenl
story "published tn a morulug paper"
was a fearful, cold blooded fake; not n
line ut truth fu ii. The people alleged
to have been drowned were all alive
and well. The yacht which was said
to have gone down wiih all ou board
was not even In commission.
Gllroy wrestled with his emottoiiB
for sume time before he hatl the colli''

About ,i mouth afterward Gllroy
found upon his desk a manuscript from
the "scoop flood." Upon lhe outside
was scribbled: "This is all right. 1*0111*8

Gllroy read lhe story. It was an account of a suicide, of the rush deed of
an unknown man who had jumped
headlong from the tingle building, ton
stories tu Ihc street, ul 2:110 lhat stun..'
morning, ami it was then hardly 1

Gllroy pitched the manuscript Into a

from his thoughts. He was unt the
man fo be caught twice by some crazy
