Nearly this number are now at work
anil more will be put ou daily aa the

up the mill with the latest machinery
aud make it in every respect first-class.
They hope to have everything in readiness by tbe middle of June, after which
the mill will be turning out 40,003 feet
of lumber per day. Thus, in a short
lime Moyie will have one of the finest
sawmills in British Columbia,
THK  WATERWORKS
Harold Pollard, to whom was awarded
the contract for building the dam on
Campbell creek, haa now completed hia
work. The dam Is built of cedar timbers

BRAKEMAN BARNEY LOSES IIS UFE
Engineer Wardman ani Fireman
Cook Have a Narrow Escape From Death.
THE   ACCIDENT   WAS  UNAVOIDABLE
One of ihe most serious accidents that
have occurred on the Crow for some
time was tbe wreck of a freight train
last Thursday night between Sparwood
and Hosmer. Tbe train wns iu charge
of Conductor O'Hagan, with Kngineer
Wardiimn and Fireman Cook iu the cab.
aud Claude Barney, head brakeman, occupying a sent on Ihe fireman's side.
The train was bound enst, aud as il was
rounding a curve on lhe bank of the
Michel river at a slow rate, it atrttck a
piece of track that had been forced out
over the bank hy a land slide, "When
Engineer Wardmau saw the trouble, be
shut off his engine and threw the air
valve into the emergency, hut it was too
late to stop tbe train or make a move
for safety, Hefore there was time to
more than grab the lever, and bold on
for dear life, Ihe engine hnd gotten out
011 the track hanging over a drop of 30
feet lo the Michel river below. There
was a grinding crash of binding steel
and straining parts, and then a sudden
drop into the depths below. Down tbey
went, Wardman still clinging to the
lever and bis seat. Tbe engine turned
over, and Fireman Cook, who was
standing in the gangway, wss thrown
clear off the engine and tender into the
river, and swam ashore, escaping with a
few cuts and bruises. When the engine
finally landed the engineer's side was
above tbe swift-flowing water, and
Wardman broke the glass in his window
and crawled out to safety. On the other
side sat "Uud" Barney, who had couie
in to get relief from the chilly air of the
ni^hl, and was calmly smoking hia pipe.
Sitting back by the boiler, there was no
opportunity for him to escape, and wheu
the engine landed he was on Ihe under
side, held down in the current by the
awful weight of No. 694, and there his
body rests today, waiting for tbe arrival
of machinery of sufficient power to remove tbe tender and engine.
The accident wss one of those that
is unavoidable, Tbe train was being
run with great caution, but owing to the
fact that Ihe track was thrown out, there
was no chance to prevent the wreck.
The escape of the engineer tnd fireman
was little less than miraculous, and Ihe
death of young Barney is deplored by
all. He is a son of Cliff Barney, engineer on the yard engine in this place,
and his untimely end was a hard blow to
his parents. He had been breaking only
two weeks, and hud entered upon the
work under protest ftom his mother.
While working at the atation here in
Cranbrook be had made many friends,
as be was a bright boy wilh a aunny disposition, and the faculty of making
staunch frieuds of all who knew him.

THOUGHTS   i»«
 AND FANCY
One of the oldest prospectors in South
Mast Kootenay, and probably oue of tbe
best known is Ben Pugb. Ben came to
East Koolenuy witb the surveyors on tbe
main Hue, and has been knocking around
over tiie hills ever siuce, stopping during the winter mouths at either Fori
Sleele or Cranbiook. Naturally lhe
world has progressed during all ihis lime,
and ihere are many improvements tbat
have lakeu place iu twenty years ihat
Ben has beard uf but never has seen.
Lasl week he visited Nelson aa a witness
iu a case, ami saw for the first time an
electric car. To tell it as Ben tells it is
impossible, for his manner and gestures
adtl very much to the pith of the slory.
He snys that on the way ever be met a
number of old friends on the boat, aud
in consequence of this fuet wheu he arrived at Nelsou he had taken on board
quite a load. Leaving the boat he
Hiarted up town for the hotel,
1 was just crossing a street with
rails on, wheu I heard a whirring noise,"
snid Ben. "I looked first oue way, then
another, aud just up the atreet I saw a
big fine looking car, all lighted up aud
running like the devil was after it.
There was uo engine pushing it or pull-
iug it, no smoke, no fire, nothing but
tbis great big creature coming at me like
h ,  wilh  a  long  tail  sticking  up
straight from lis back, the small end lied
toa wire above. Scared, I guess I wna.
I looked first one way, and then another,
and finally got across the s reel aud up
against a building. When I turned
around it was gone, but do mi the street
I snw a streak of light. I asked a man
what it was. He told me an electric car
It was the first one I had ever seen, and
theu it struck me I had beeu in lhe
woods a long lime."
GET READY FOR THE FAIR
A Grand Carnival of Sport to Last
Two Days.
Two weeks ago Thc Herald editor
visited Nelson aa a member of the football aggregation of South Kast Kootenay,
but ac the game was postponed, he was
unable to remain aud returned home the
neat morning. He was there long
enough lo receive from the Nelson players several compliments ou his reputation as a Rugby player, which, we might
add were listened to with that modesty
that characterizes all men in the uews-
pnper profession. No.one regretted
more than we did the necessity of our re
turning before the gauie was culled. Tbe
game was lost to Nelson, If we could
have remained U might have been—but,
what is the use of lamenting. The situation is dealt wilh by the Bong bird of
the Fort Steele Prospector, as follows,
and heuce this explanation:

Then.
MAKE    ARRANGEMENTS   TO    COME
Arrangements nre being rapidly made
for the two days' carnival of sports to be
held in Cranbrook May 27 and 28, under
the management of the Turf and Athletic
association. The track at tbe large and
commodious grounds has been put in
first-class shape, and ia being worked
daily. The foot ball aud base ball
grounds have been given attention and
will be in excellent condition for the
sport at the time of the fair. Nothing
is being left uudone by Messrs. Haiues
nud Peltier to make tbe event one long
to be remembered in tbe history of
South Hast Kootenay. Secretary Gilt
ia iu correspondence now with horsemen
In eastern liiitish Columbia aud Alberta,
and the prospects at present point to a
good attendance of harness nags and
bang tails on that occasion. The local
horsemen are greatly interested and all
of them are going out after a share of
the purses.
There will be two or three base ball
games and one or two foot ball games,
besides plenty of other sports on the
first day. Uu the second day tbe horses
will be lined up and there promises to
be ell kinds of excitement.
The meeting is oue that will afford
plenty of amusement to everyone, and
the people of Soulh Kast Kootenay and
the surrounding territory cannot afford
to miss it. Amusement days are scarce
enough in a new country like this,
hence there is every reason why the people should arrange to turn out for at
least oue day's sport.

Mr. Mott has a fine line of ore in W
F, Tate's window that waa taken from
his property on Moyie river. Jt is
galena, with showings of copper, and
the assays taken give evidence of rich
deposits of lead and silver. They have
a shaft down 42 feet, and a good face on
the lead.
Nearly aU of Baker bill has been
staked on the strength ofa gold excitement aroused by the assays taken on
some rock near J. II, Casttoke'a residence. The Herald edi'.or, like several
other property owners in that section,
find their residences taken In by mineral claims. What developments will
show is bard to tell, but those Interested

terlau church to the English church, tbe
one from A. Moffat's house east to tbe

the North Star mine, is in town accompanied hy Mrs. Curran and daughter
Mr. Curran stated that tbe mine bad resumed shipping, but on a smaller scale,
owing to the condition ofthe lead mai-
ket. At present the limit is 1000 tons a

It would be taken for granted that
everyone in South East Kootenay
knew Harry Drew, of Kimberley, and
John Murphy, of Moyie. Tbey are old
timers here, but still tbere is one man
wbo did not know them last week, but
be does now. Both Drew and Murphy,
although not dudes, dress well and make
a gooil appearance. Last Priday we met
them at the Cranbrook hotel talking to
W. P. Gurd and one or two more citizens.
After a joke or two we left them, and
further down the street we met Dan McLeod, book-keeper for Breckenridge &
Lund. Dan stopped us and pointing toward the group we had jusi left, asked
"Are tbose Ihe railway officials visiting
the town?" Scenting some sport, we
promptly replied lu the affirmative, aud
indicating Harry Drew, told Mac he was

The Mass lhat was presented list
Wednesday evening at the Method iet

There was a large attendance, the audience throughout displayed their appreciation ofthe good work done. To take
between thirty or forty voices and train
tbem so as to do such excellent work as
was ahown tbat evening, reflects great
credit upon tbe director, and npon those
wbo took part. Perhaps there bas not
been an event of tbe kind in Crar-
brook's history that has given snch universal satisfaction; and wben one considers that three years ago then were
hardly twenty people in the town, the
feat seems all the more remarkable. It
is to be hoped tbat Mra. Reid and the

SITUATION   IS   IMPKOVIN0.
The Sl. Kugene mine of Mnyle bas returned operations and pl.ced utvt 2ro
men at work again. The North Star
mine bas resumed shipping, The sawmills of Moy to, Cranbrook and Pernio
are running full time with large luces
of men, and one or two more mills nearly ready for work. The C. P, R Is doing more construction work along tbe
Crow through this district than It bas
ever done since the road was built.
These things, taken together, give every
promise of pay rolls throughout the district for the summer, and a satlsfuctoiy
degree of prosperity. In addition to all
of this there will be a large amount of
work done ou new mining properties,
which will Involve a vast amouni of
labor aod the expenditure of large sums
of money.
Reviewing the situation at this time,
there Is every reason lor ihe people of
Siuib East Kootenay to feel satisfied
over the prospects of the future,
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
This weather seems to be the real thing
Editor Pettlplece, of tbe l.ardeau
Bagle, advertises tbat be will loan
money. And Iviitor Lowery, of the
New Denver Ledger, styles himself as
editor and financier. Tbose fellows
will be running a trust bt fore they quit.
Tbe case of Minister Baer, charg.d
with tbe awful crime of using tobacco,
haa been settled at tbe Methodist conference held at Nelson last week. This
accusation b is been pending for over a
year, and many of tbe delegates wanted
to lire tht godly man from the pulpit
lor his terrible sin. It ts such nonsense
as tbis that brings ridicule on tbe
church, and gives its enemies weapons
with which to raise Cain. It hardly
seems possible that such a farce could
be enacted In this enlightened age.
Tbe Phoenix Pioneer speaking of tbe
papers of the Interior, has tnls to say
ol Tht Herald:
In Gist Kootenay the Cranbrook
Herald is perhaps the most readable
publication, P. K Simpson conlinues
to mike It a paper that Is a decided
ciedit to tbe place and section.
North East Kootenay got S:m,ir.(i lo
tbo appropriations tbis year, it pays
sometimes to bave your district repre
stated by a member of the cabinet.
The Rossland Miner wants a MAN te
tike up tbe reins of government In this
province. It Is evident by the work of
the Isst few months, tbat something
Is needed at Victoria.
It Is an insignificant man Indeed these
days who does not give Joe Martin i
hot shot.
C. H. Gregg, late of ihe Nelson Miner
Is now editor and manager ofthe Hoss
land Mir er. Gregg Is a good newspaper
mm, Lis principal fault being hla persistency In telllngihe public of the fact.
Tbe price of diamonds are rapidly ad*
vinclog. S .meibing continually arises
to make tba life of tbe country editor a
bird ont. 	
Tbe Sunday games have been stopped
In Nelson. If tbe morality crowd Is
sincere, they will be able to flud many
other games In Nelson that are a whole
lot worse for tbe community than a
football contest on Sunday.
Tbt provincial legislature haa adjourned. Small favors thankfully received. 	
3. Piepont Morgan Is preparing to In-
fade Canada with the idea of forming a
law trusts.   The Herald Is exempt.
Several men made several million in
Wall street during the last few weeks.
That Is more than Jim Ryan, Bert
Beattie, Archie Leitch, J jbn C'jsilgan
and The Herald has made in two years.
Mark Hanna refused the job of managing tbe billion dollar steel trust and
a salary of 51,000,0011 a year. Hanna Is
a chump. 	
Whit British Columbia needs Is 1
local assembly made up of men of brains
and enough patriotism and honesty tt
legislate at least one session for the
benefit of the people and province at
large, unencumbeied by tbe demands
aud designs of corporations.
The provincial legislators raised their
pay from 8«0() to tnun. it they had
reduced It to :m cents, tbe act would
have met with the hearty approval of 1
long suffering public.

In In Weir Mitchell's hook a pleas-
nnt story or two Is told of Walt Whitman, the writer, to whom roiuc would
deny the name of poet, while others regard liim as one of the greatest of ull
poets, tine of the characters in the
Btory of "Dr. North and His Friends"
snys that Whitman was eaten up hy
Ills own vanity, regarding everything
lie did ns of BUCli supreme value thnt
lu hat) lost all power of self criticism
nml could uot tell good from bad or lu-
different. Once he wns nsked If he
thought Bbhkcspenro as great n poet as
himself. lie replied that he hnd often
thought of that, hut had never been
able to couie to a decision.
He went to a physician upon an occasion, thinking himself seriously out
nf health. When he learned thnt his
ailment, whatever It wns, could bo
treated best by living as much ns possible out of doors without dosing with
medicine, he was leaving lu all good
liunmr when lie bethought himself of
the physician's fee. "How much wilt
It be?" he In qui red. "The debt wns
paid hmg ago," said the doctor, wbo
knew .ind liked hts writings. "It Ii

the direct and specific action of this

of a highly respected resident of Con-

Mr. .1 times Dellihunt, Consecon,
Prince Edward County, Ont., writes:
"For several years I suffered great
tortures of mind and body from
Brlght's dii-icasu of the kidneys. Tho
pains were sometimes almost beyond
enduranco ami extended from my
hend and between tho shoulders down
the whole spinal column and seemed
to concentrate ncross my kidneys.
My back was never entirely free from
pain. When I got up in the morning
I oould not straighten myself at ail,
but would go bent, nearly double
most all day.   My water was scaniy
nnd at other t fines profuse, and It
gave me great pain to urinate.
"I could do no work, and, though
I tried many kinds of kidney pills,
could get no relief. As a last resort
I was Induced by a friend to glvo Dr.
Cbosp'fl Kidney-Liver Pills a trial. X
felt a change after the first dose. I
used in all about five boxes, nnd

Is one of the (unctions oi the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at less than double our price.
