The Cranbrook band was organized
last February by B. IL Short and
iince ihat time the members have
been faithfully practicing each week,
endeavoring to give to this city a
hand, which all feel tlie place should
have. For this continuous work the
members of the band are deserving of
tlie utmost praise, for it means a
greal deal for a man to give one or
1 evenings a week to a public
cause of this nature. Tbe band has
appeared upon two occasions in public, once at Elko and again at Moyie.
Their playing gave evidence of the
fact Uiat they are in need of practice in the open air, as their work iu
small room week after week, has
made tliem timid about tilling their
Instruments. Last Monday they
were badly handicapped by two of
tin- members being absent, which is a
hard tilling to contend with in a band.
A in 1 t'hci month with outdoor prac-
lice, will place the band in veiy
good shape and where It will lie a
credit to the town. The Herald
would suggest that for outdoor
music the band secure a tow red hot.
lively selections, that when played
will make the blood tingle and
muscles move, That is the kind of
music lhat, will win approbation
from the largest crowd that can
gather on lhe street. It might be
said in praise of the interest manifested by members of the band, that
up-to-date ihere has been spent by
'he members themselves toss for Instruments, That is a prelty good
showing. Following is a list of the
members and the Instruments that

(Special io the Cranbrooi' Ita
'llie    game  was called   at     1.08        Vt

2 minutes. After Uie face-oft the
ball travelled up and down' lie Held
and was principally up at lhe othei
end and Hodd.-n finally securing the
ball made _, tunnel in Die ground and
scored from au underhand shot.
Time, H minutes.
After lhe face-off some pretty combination was played on the Cianbrook Imuie, Miller scoring in iw..
minutes, play was resumed and
the ball was carried up to Cranbrook
defence, Matheson secured and Hodden
took a lean on Mathesou's slick
with the other hand and disputed his
right to the ball. Matlieson disputed Hodden's right to hold his
stick, and the first quarter ended
with a Iree exhibition, Marquis, of
Queensbury rules governing the con-
Jim Bates, official referee, thought
they were a little previous and gave
them two minutes to cool off.
DeBeck scored the lirst goal In thc
second quarter after five minutes of
very strgiuoiis^pJay on both teams.
It took five minutes to score again
and Mathews tallied the trick on n
pretty pass from Cowan. Play was
resumed and the ball carried to lhe
immediate vicinity of tlte Frank goal.
Harold Jamieson shot, goal tender
stopped and cleared the bull behind
the nets. Mathews went lo Hold the
ball, passing in front of goal and
Hrislin deliberately cut bim
over the eye. Mathews then turned
to field him and, catch as catch can,
an open contest took place in which
the most »f the good players took
part-. This again caused the referee's displeasure and Mathews uml
Hrislin were retired to the side-line
for two minutes. Mathews was repaired and went into the game as
good as new. Here elided the second
lesson 4  to 1. ».
After half time Frank made a terrible effort to keep the score from
increasing. After about six minutes
pilay Cowan made a beautiful zig
ag rush (to quote the Old Man)
and by a dexterous and well directed
shot hit the goal keeper (who was
watching Mathews more than he
watched the hall), plunk ou his lid
and the ball went skywards and was
pronounced hy tlte great concotirso of
isinterested spectators to be the
most sensational stop of the day.
This Is the opinion of many who were
present at the wonderful showing by
the "Luean Giant." Mr. William
Rollins in his memorable game with
lhe Shamrocks against the Muskogee
Hellbenders. Cranbrook was taking
things easy doing their best to let
Frank score, but Eickoff, between
ihe flags, proved that he was a
whole defence in himself. Just before the end of the third cuartcr
Patton scored. Score I) lo I In
favor of Cranbrook.
The last quarter started off with
some pretty loose playing on Cran-
bYooi-v part, hut nevertheless they
could not help scoring. After five
minutes play DeBeck »•"■-1 Hr ball
off the goal keeper's bodv and placed
it in the nets. After four minutes
more play Jamieson let the lmil slip
off bis stick into the nets, to the
disgust of the Great Lennox. The
same thing occurred to DeBeck one
minute after and thus the game Milled I to fl in favor of ihe nine as

certain players sacrificing lhe club
mid themselves for monetary considerations these players have' been

In Utfth there are extensive ozokerite

for a number of years, but there are
no oil fields in Utah of any consequence, The peculiarity of the
ozokerite In lhe Queen Charlotte

In Mie valley of ihe Keltic river,'
a number nf claims were staked .some
years ago, and applications were
made to lhe government for reservation witli the intention of operating
for oil, bul whether it was, on
further inveslRation, found that the
evidences were noi sufficient to warrant the expenditure or not, 1 am

no work done, although an effori wAs

ihe purpose.
lu the Hi'aver Valley. Cariboo disiriet. Ihere were large beds of bituminous shale, which give out consider*
able quantities of oil when exposed
to lhe heat. The production of oil
from shales has been an important
Industry in Scotland tor many years:
from two to three millions of tons
nf shale have been mined yearly in
(ireat Britain for distillation, crude
oil and ammonia being obtained in
this operation, the crude oil amounting to aboui 'dti gallons per ton of
shale. lu a country which produces
no native petroleum, tlie industry is
profitable ami a large amount of capital is invested. In his report to
the minister nl mines of Iltfll, Mr.
Robertson, provincial mineralogist,
referring to 1he.se shales, states oil
can tic extracted from the shales at
a temperature of 100 degrees C.
The specific gravity of the oil is .1*72
nd produce .'! per cent, of the weight
f the shale, Some claims have recently been taken up in this district, a company lias been organized
for the purpose ol exploring lhe vat
ley iu the hope thai outcropping
shales are an evidence nf reservoirs
of oil at depth.
Probably the most notable of all
Mie oil districts nf the province is
what is known as the Flathead district, where the seepages are considerable, indeed extraordinary, some of
y.iein producing -several gallons per
hour. The nil produced in some instances is almnst water wbile, in
others an amber color, about the color ol brandy, and others a dark
green. It is "very volatile, containing
a very large percentage of illuminating; oil and bas a pat'affine base.
During the past winter a rig has
lieen set up in this territory and boring is now in operation. As the
country is contiguous In the Alberta
oil field, which has already some producing wells, it is expected that, these
operations will lie conducted with
smne measure of success, although if
the geological reports, of eminent
geologists, such as bhe late Dr. Dawson, Dr. Selwyn, Bailey Willis, Mr.
W. T. Robertson, the provincial
mineralogist, may be relied upon it
is going to lie a case of very deep
drilling, in facl, tn a greater depth
than any olher nil field, known in the
world as yet. 11 is noticeable that
the seepages of oil in this district
are confined almost entirely to the
disturbed portion nf the country at
Hue font hills and in t-he near vicinity. Numerous seepages o. nil and
gas escaping from the cracks and
joints, in the rocks are found. I'he ga*
igniting freely on the application of
a match. The rocks in most of the
cracks a'lsn give out <, strong odor
of petroleum upon being broken or
rubbed. .fust south nf this district
on the American side, in the vicinity
ol Kinila lakes, a considerable
amount nf work has been done, one
well having been put down to the
depth of 1,80(1 feet without obtaining
nil in any quantity. The seepages
In this locality are also quite evident,
as noticed above in the vloinlly nf
Flathead creek, B. C. I>r. Bailey
Willis, who gave the whole district a
very careful examination, has the
following to say regarding lhe Flathead country in British. Columbia: '
The rocks of the eastern Rocky
mountain range through which these
seepages rise to the surface are very
old quart7iles and siliceous lime
stones, together with thick beds of
greatly ind rated shale, which is also
very siliceous and often cemented by
silica so as to transform if. into
argillaceous ipiart/ite. They are
known tn be of early Paleozoic or
pie-Paleozoic age. The entire series
as exposed here and in the eastern
front of thi' Rocky Mountain range
consist   nf  the following  formation:

zites, yielding   casts of salt

London, July 2,—The American line
special, carrying in passengers whu
Had debarked Sunday night Irom the
steamer New York, fiom New York,
June 23, was wrecked at Salisbury,
eight miles from London, at two
o'clock yesterday morning. Twenty-
ihree passengers were killed an.l
seven injured. Among the killed
were Walter Barwlck, Uev. E, L.
King and C. L. Plpon, all of Toronto. The other passengers killed were
ail Americans.
The train consisted of a powerful
express engine, three first-class carriages, and one combination guards'
van and buffet. The passengers were
soon entrained and a) 11.30 lhc express pulled out. it was given a
clear track on the run of 23U miles
io London, on which Uie express generally maintains an average speed ul
a mile a minute.
Driver Robins quickly gave the engine her head and llii; special was
soon speeding swiftly through Lhe
night. It ran on safely and without
incident until it entered the long
railway yard at Salisbury, when the
passengers noted that the coaches began swaying from side lo side. Suddenly al i'he end of the long platform
where Ihe track begins to curve to
wards the bridge spanning Fisherton
street, ihe main avenue of ihc city,
the engine appeared fairly to leap
from tin- track. It swung across ihc
adjoining track with terrible force
and destroyed the guards' van of a
milk train that Wns slowly steaming
in the opposite direction, killing a
guard. Lurching forward the Toco
motive plunged againsl Mie standards
and girders of the bridge. The
bridge withstood the impact, and, rebounding the engine crashed into
another engine which was standing
on a siding and overturned. The engines Interlocked Inlo a grcal mass ol
steel and iron. Throughout tlie wild
plunging nf tlie engine driver Robins
whether 'lead or alive, remained in
his cab. Hours afterwards his char*
red body was found grilled over Hie
The lirst coach shot over tho engine
and careened onward until it Was
hurled against the pnnipct of llie
bridge nnd swashed Into fragments,
killing or maiming almost every occupant. One man was shot through
the window, cleared the parapet and
fell tn his death to the street below
The second coach lurched forward
and tolled toward a stationary train
and practically destroyed itself before its wild flight was ended.
Tlie third coach dashed forward
with the rest, left the rails and encountered some obstruction, overturned and collapsed.
The guards' van and buffet, the
rearmost car of the train, was saved
hv the courage and quickness of
Guard Richardson. Wilh the rust
shock RlchardSon rushed foi'ward and
set the brake and saved himself and
his comrades. The van plowed forward, injuring some of the occupants,
but practically maintained its equilibrium.
The surviving passengers and train
men describe the sound nf the wreck
as like a discharge of a series ot
heavy guns of varied calibre, and
wlien the crashing of lhe wreck was
past there came calls of the injured,
some shrieking with pain and fear,
and others moaning, as 11 bewildered jployees.

  of   lhe :
ing  tales ol
life that  ha:
It was Stewart's lot to dlscovi
very rich deposits ol gold-bearing
quartz while out on a prospecting
tour in Uie mountains last fall, and
after rallying samples of the ore to
his lonely cabin, which he built far
up in tho hills, he must have (alien
ill and later died either from sui-
vatton or the effects ot his illness,
most probably the former. Ills
cabin, and his skeleton lying on the
bunk, were found this spring.
Stewart always prospected alone,
an.l wlien starling out on a trip he
would always lake a large supply of
provisions in a canoe, and atler proceeding up a stream as far as possible iu whatever direction he wished
lo go, he would build a cache on the
shore for his grub and would then
gn high up in the mountains and
build a cabin in the woods,
Stewart started out from Port
Simpson op one ol the trips quietly
last summer, and only a few friends
knew he was going. One of these
was n man named Chambers, who
was the leader nf lhe party that discovered Stewart's sad end. He wesi
never seen again after leaving thci
town, and as months went by and'
autumn turned inio winter his friends
became anxious, and as soon as favor-
orable weather appeared this spring
■a search party was organized ami
started on a hunt over the region
Stewart Was known to have gone
lt was several days before Stewart's fate was revealed, and it was
a gruesome sight that met the eyes
of lhe searchers as Ihey came across
a small cabin high up In the mountains late one afternoon. They called as they ran toward it to see if
anyone was around, Unl Iheir wonts
we're onlv echoed by the hills. Tliey
opened the door and saw a skeleton
lying on the hunk in the small room,
almost all the flesh having been carried away by the small species of
wild animals that are common to
the disiriet.
Stewart's Identity was undnuhtedlv
established by several articles found
in the cabin,'which he was known to
have taken wilh him. lie had probably been dead for several months.
What was the saddest part of the
whole affair, though, Was that Stewart had evidently been stricken ill
and had died Irom sickness and starvation far from human help. The
dishes were all gathered on a shelf
in front of Ihe hunk as though he
had eaten while lying in bed for
some time, bul there was not a sign
of nnylliing to eat about the
place. Stewart's remains were
buried up in the moi»itains where lie
had so often roamed.
In one corner of the cabin were
found some valuable samples of
gold-bearing quartz, and these were
laken out and assayed. They were
found to contain good vnln-s of gold
as well as copper and silver, and in
some instances ran as high as MOO
to lhe ton.
. The old cabin was searched jyll over
fnr some notes or sketches of the loeal ion where the ore had been found
by Stewart, hut no trace of any
kind could Ite found of a possible
clew to ils location.
Chambers and several companions
decided that bhe ore wns well worth
looking for, and have outfitted a
parly of prospectors who are now
going over all the ground in the
vicinity of the dead man's cabin and
for miles around in the hope of locating the ore and solving the dead
man's secret.

Edmonton, .June 27.—What the new
transcontinental railway will mean
in lhe working people of Canada is
shown by the fact thai at the present
moment there are some fifty thousand
men working for the Canadian Pacific
railway. And this on 'he railway
alone; those working on the general
olliee staffs mid the steamship companies are not. iiu-liided in lbe count.
This means that If tliere nre a million men amongst the six million
peoplo of Canada, about five out ot
every hundred of them arc working
for the Canadian Pacific railway.
The closest figures obtainable allow
that, the average pay roll of the C.
P, R. approximates forty-five thousand men; this meaning about fifty
thousand in the busiest summer sea-
ion and about forty thousand In tlie
winter. The estimate is necessarily
not exact, hecause the list changes so
many hundreds every day thai anything more than approximate figures
are quite unattainable. But the
figures are quite sufficient to show
thai the big transcontinental road
means a good deal to Canada. It is
estimated that, taking tiie better
paid with the lower paid men, they
would average at the very lowest
$500 a year. On this, basis, the C.
P. R. pav cars would hand out about
$2o,iioo,imii per year to the road am-

Winnipeg Free Press only "got next"

ot'her day, but it made a hip spread
about it nevertheless.
Under the heading, "One of tho
Wonders of the World," the Winnipeg
daily says:
It is believed tn have been practically decided by the Canadian Pacific
railway to enter at once upon the
const mot/Ion of a steel bridge, which
will be one nf the wonders of the
world, Second Vtco-prcsldent,
William Whyte, nf lhe 0. P.
IL, is at present in Montreal conferring wilh president, Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy regarding thc enterprise, and il is understood .that the
decision has been virtually reached
io no on wiih the work during tho
present  season.
The new bridge will he almut one
mile in length nnd will he 800 leet
in height, As compared with other
bridges nf the world, tbe Brooklyn
bridge is not longer, nml is not more
Ihan one-half as high-, The well
known bridge of ihe Tyne in England., built hy Robert Stephenson
lifiv vents ago, is about one-half as
high and 0flP-4iall as long as the one
promised lo he built hv lbe 0, P.  R.
The new steel strueltire of the Canadian Pacific . will span the Belly
river nl LelhbHdge, Alberta, The
purpose of the company In building
it is In slraifcbten the Iracl. and
