Nelson, B. V., July 23.—One of tie
most serious accidents on record in
ihe Kootenay country occurred ou
Saturday evening on the Spokane
Fails A Northern railway, the
branch of the Greal Northern running into Nelson and Rossland, at a
point almut seven miles northwest of
Waneta, on Hie boundary line. Four
persons were killed otHrigbb, one seriously Injured, while a number were
more or less bruised or cut. The
names ot the dead are W. B, Town-
send, W. B. Smith, M. D, UcKlnnoii
antl an unidentified man. Mrs. W,
H. Poole, ol Nelson, was badly injured, while Mrs. Vi. (.'line, ol Craubrook, Louis Bergeron, of Still*
water, Minn., C. Summers, colored
porter; E, Jones, colored cook; Cqii-
ituotor Imvi lum and Brakeman
Paden were all hurt.
Tbo train was Hie usual daily inlo
Nelson from Spokane, ami all wmi
well until just after L*rofcsing lo
British Columbia and entering upon
tbe lung rise over llie mountains into
Nelson from the banks ol the Columbia river. At Beaver Canyon Ihere
is a trestle across tlte narrow cleft
which Is regarded as safe enough, as
the approaches are facile, However, as the train, consisting ot
three coaches, a combination baggage
and smoker next the engine, a day
car ami a buffet at the end, passed
over, the buffet car suddenly left the
rails nearly at the middle of thc
viaduct, and was precipitated twenty
feet below, dropping end-wise Into
the bed of the stream. The coupling
between it ami the daj coach held,
and Mm day coach followed Mie buffet
car. The check received by tlie drag
of lbe couplings caused the rear car
to bang perpendicularly from Hie
trestle while on Hie otter hand the
pull of lhe engine was sufficient to
communicate au Impetus to the day
coach, iimkiog a complete turn In th.-
air, lhe coupling between it and the
buffet car breaking In mdair. Luckily lhe coupling with tin- smoker
snapped, ami thai and the engine remained on the rails.
In the day coach were eight persons, Including Louis Bergeron and
Mrs. W. Cllne, the conductor and the
brakesman . These four were all
seriously hurt, but the other four
passengers escaped with somo minor
contusions onlv. despite their fearful
fall. The lirst thought was for the
lower car, and a rush was made toward il down the steep declivity,
Smoke was soon Issuing from the

The cause of the wreck is said to
have been a faully sleeper on the
roar truck of lhe buffet car, which
suddenly gave way, and one end
dropping got between the tips of the
trestle, so causing the derailment.
Whether this theory is true or not
will be the reason of an investigation.

Six deaths in 1Hti admissions r
presents 1.37 per cent, of fatal ease
This, as it stands, is probably aboui
as low a record as can he shown ir
any general hospital lu the world;
bui let us look _ Utile closer. in
one case a poor fellow, doomed to
certain death from cancer of thc
stomach, and suffering Ulie horrible
tortures of that worst form of the
disease, shot himself through the
temple to make an end of H all. He
died in thc hospital a couple ol hours
after admission. A second, who had
his head crushed and battered to a
pulp by some piece of heavy niachin
cry, also died soon after being received. A third was found half dead
and unconscious in the forest, and
tiled quickly from shock and exposure.
These three deaths are outside lbe
debatable line of cases that medical
skill or nursing could, by any suggestible or possible means, save oi
recover. The fourHi death was
caused hy cancer, that mysterious
and rapidly increasing scourge of
humanity which lias baffled, and
baffling, the combined medical skill
of the world. The fifth was Irom
heart disease, and the last from
diabetes, which in its advanced
stages, appears to be incurable. Wo
have then, three deaths from organic
disease out of 436 patients, or a
shade over three-lifths of one per
cent, a truly surprising record for a
hospital where all classes of patients
are received. It suggests tliat it
one were to avoid death and achieve
the nearest thing to immortality, the
St. Kugene hosp.tal at Cranbrook is
the place lo accomplish it.
The secret of this extraordinary
success seems to Iw the recognition
by Mm Sisters in charge that all
communicable disorders have each |ts
own seed, germ, microbe, or bacillus
(call it wh ch you will), each distinct and a.s easily recognizable under the mcroscope of Hie tiaoterlolo-
gist as- ti cabbage seed from turnip
seed, nr oats from wheat. II Uiosi;
genus linil im lurking place, no suitable soil in which tn grow, they die.
They thrive in dirt, dost and
uastiness ol all kinds. The Sisters
know this, and reduce cleanliness to
a science. The germ, therefore, that
thinks it is going to make a living
by killing some poor fellow in the
St. Kugene hospital, is going to'have
a rough time ol It. If il misses
carbolic acid or mercury bi-chlor.de,
il has clean air and" Hie oxygen
thereof, and pure sunlight with ' its
ultra-violet rays, chasing it to destruction. It simply throws up its
bands and shrivels into tlte ghost of
a possible curse, without getting the
chance of becoming even a toxin.
Take an example:—Up stairs is the
operating room, a big, airy, well-
lighted apartment without a single
tiling in it beyond what is essental.
It is clean as new fallen snow; it is
bare; il is austere; but the essentials
arc there, and Hie chief of them is
Ihe operating tattle. This appliance
s made of heavy plate glass, mounted on a steel frame which is coated
with nickel and white enamel as hard
as the glass itself. No microbe;
could make a living on that piece of]
furniture, and the woist pathogenic
bacillus tlmt ever came down t-he
p ke would die of a broken hmrt   to

part of it ftir food was a crime un-
u nh en nl of.
In a certain village several thousand miles noi t'h by easi of Canton
there lived a farmer. He lived lu a
tlto!ohtif-rtiof house aud bad one
son, anil owned a litter of small
pigs*. Ile may have had other possessions, but the stoix ti complete
wilhoul their mention. One day Iho
old man left his house, ami during
his abwiKv ihc place burned down
and lie pigs were roasltd to death.
The young son started lo carry out
tbe hot bodies of the sucklings, aud
wluii his hands were burned lie naturally touched his fingers to bis lips,
and Inadvertently lasted tlie crackled
skin of tlw pig- He liked it so
much that he sat down and made a
meal oft this roast pig. His father
found V.ic lad gorging himself, and
was horrified, but lhe youth induced
bis parent id try lhe same experiment. Thc result was lhat roast
pig became their-steady diet. Th n
tlie neighbors began lo notice how
often did the house of ibis particular
farmer burn down. His hut was
always catehing fire and his sacred
pigs roasting to death. The thing
came to be a public scandal, and   a
waich was set, wilh the resuli  that
the farmer and his son were found in
the verv act of eating a pig. TL'cy
were arrested.
At the trial counsel lor lhe defence
brought in a hot roasted pig and
handed it to tiie jury for inspection.
Tte jurors yielded to ihe same temptation that bad carried   away   tbe

There is a growing tendency on ilu*
(►art. of om good friend Molt, of tlie
Kernle Ledger, lo dictate 'tic editorial utterances >'f llie Herald and
other papers in the district. After

dictating ihe editorial policy of one's

for one newspaper mai. unless lie be
a new hand at the business.
The Herald subscribers are growing
more iiiiiiieious each month. The
mail clerks on lbe t'row say t/hey do
not understand how a weekly papc
in a tnwn Uie size of Cranbrook
sends out so many papers.
And speaking id circulation, that is
a point that should interest everv
advertiser. An ad. in a paper with
two hundred circulation is worth
more to the advertiser limn an ad
in a paper with only -di ol a circulation, And in Ifoe same proportion
au ^d. in the Herald with ..ver 1,0011
circulation ti of value to the advertiser. Wc want you in know how
many papers wc print, tor you have
a right to know. And ibe Herald
circulation Is bona Ode. Not a copy
is sunt unless it is ordered, und nol
u copy is continued when ordered
stopped. Huw many weekly papers
can honesty make thai statement?
How many' will Iel thc advertiser
know what Ire ti grid ins for liis
money? The Herald wants to play
ibe game on thc smiare, and it can
freely state thnl the advertiser in
its columns Will gol value received
for all money paid.

mother's devotion go so far as tti
leave her the leading character in a
procession of mournful visages leaving V.\e abode where llw sunshine was
barred lest it fade the carpet, and
where the few Hakes of oxegen lhat
happened in through Hu; screon door
—a lh- never—were not enough to
give her an appetite; where she never
rested, never read, iml spent every

ber successor to enjoy along witb
plenty of time to develop her mental
and physical being.
The marriage question is a serious
one at any time, and there are diverse opinions as to the sanest and
safest way to meet this responsibil
ity. A writer to the Old Man, asks,
"Should Wise Women Marry Fools?"
and then follows up with thc following sensible discussion:
Iu this controversy a fool is understood to be a man in anyway deficient in mental capacity. It would
lie better than wise women
should marry men ot less mental
ability, and in course of time the race
would be, to SOine degree at any
rale, improved. It s a well known
fact that tbe children of persons of
acute intelligence are frequently deficient in mental capacity. It would
be presumptions for any man to assert that many women are not wiser
than the majority of men, but their
wisdom is often counteracted by their
love of dress, etc. When a woman
has serious responsibilities, she generally excells and is far ahead of a
man under like circumstances.
Women have a keener perception and
can concentrate their attention more
readily than the male sex. If women
were permitted to select ttlieir husbands—to ask men to marry, tlieir
selection would be of a much higher
character tban under present conditions^ A woman would select her
consort from natural and physical,
rather than from sentimental reasons, and who is there wbo cannot
mention many instances where if
women bad heen perm tted to select
tbeir husbands far happier marriages
would have resulted, While women
of high mental capacity would marry
men of intelligence, tbey would looK
first for a companion, rattier than for
a competitor, ami the world would
become wiser, It has luvn previously shown that under the present
mode marriages are often the result
uf chance. A moon-struck youth
meets ;, maiden, in common parlance,
he "falls head over heels in love."
It is often true that he falls so far
that he never recovers himself until
then- are - three or four little ones
climbing round his knees, and Hie
milkman, the baker and the butcher
elamlicring at the door for' their
biHs. It is then he begins to consider whether marriage is a failure
ami whether he has married the light
woman. Tlie maiden has married
him because she wanted a home and
she might never get another chance,
Would it therefore not Im- better to
allow women to propose anil for
women of acute ami full mental development to select decent, good,
hobwlv men and find them in tte
arni-chiir at home, instead of spending their even'ugs, money and time
al their club and even sometimes in
more questionable places. The -question, "Should wise women marry
fools" may Iw better answered witb
certain qualifications but in the aggregate it would be better for wise
women to select their own consorts.

PERFORMED    A   GOOD    ^V.lti
Comrade Haw Hi.h nth wait c has
been speaking all over the province
and making declarations that bad uo
foundation except thai gentleman's
bald statement. Like an untamed
hull he was saying lhat no man in
Hu- province dared to meet him ou
the platform to discuss public questions, and at tlw miners' celebration
in Rossland he displayed llw poor
taste to repeal his challenge in his
address at ibat meeting, a lime ami
jdace Ihal politics should never have
been introduced, a fnet that was
recognized by ail of the other speakers, including Mr. Macdonald. The
challenge was laken up by Mr. Macdonald ami after some trouble lie
finally forced Mr. llawibuintliwaiU'
lo a meeting. Tbe resuli is shown
in the following press despatch from
Rossland, July IS.—At the miners'
celebration here on Monday last, J,
II. Hawfchoriri.liwaile, the socialist
pi'ol^gautlist, issued a challenge to
Hit; leader of the opposition to meet
bim on the platform at a public
meeting on Tuesday evening, tbe
meeting lieing called iu the interests
of the socialists. At lhe appointed
time Mr. Maodonald was present,
and prepared lo take the platform,
lint received no invitation from the
chairman, The chairman proceeded
to oneii Uw meeting by slating vhat
Mr. Howthorn-Uiwatte would give an
address on socialism. At the conclusion any person might ask any
question I hey des red, or any
representative of cajpitaliMii w,,iild he
allowed lo present the onpltallslilc
side ol Hie question. Mi. Maodonald
thru rose in the audience and reminded Mr. HuwHininUiwaitc uf bis dial
lenge and asked whether or not    Iw
Won hi In- perm'tied to speak, not its
the representative of capitalism, because he disclaimed being sutfli, but
in response to the challenge which
had bciii issued lo tiilit lo meet Mr.
HnWI'horiiMiwni.o on the platform.
Mr. Hawthnrtithwaite replied Ibat if
Mr, Macdonald chose to speak as n
representative of capitalism and con*
fine himself to that, he would be allowed la speak. On rising again
Mr, Macdonald was cheered by tb,i
audience and urged to take the platform, whicli he did. He tlin again
reminded both the chairman and Mr.
Hawthornthwaite of the challenge
which had lieen issued, and that in
response to that challenge lie was
there to discuss socialism as exemplified by Mr.. HawMiornUiwait e in
the local house. Both the chairman
ami Mr. Hawthornthwaite declared
that Mr. Maodonald would not be allowed to discuss Mr. Haw-t-homth-
walte's record in the legislature, but
Mr. Hawthornthwaiie said that he
would return from the Uoumlary in a
week or two and would hold another
meeting at which Mr. Maedonukl
would have an opportunity to speak,
To this Mr. Macilonabl replied that
ihis was a very empty bluff Indeed,
as Mr. Ilawihuinl'liwaiie knew that
he, .Air Macdonald, was leaving home
for a trip through the province, and
would he absent for a month or six
weeks, that ke bad (old him this on
Saturday. Mr. Mncdonakl then
taunted the socialist leader with
shirking tlio issue, and being afraid
to meet him after challenging him tti
Ite there. This resulted in-shaming
tbe socialist leader into a declaration that he would hold a meeting
the next night. namely Wednesday
night, for tlw puiipoac of discussing
piKvincial issue- and b: invited Mr.
Macdonald to he present, this invitation was accepted amid the ohvrs of
the audience whicl filled the hall in
anticipation of a joint meeting.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite then addressed himself to socialism iu the n_tu.il
To-night's meeting was largely air
I ended. Hawthornthwaite opened,
dealing with Maodonald's record on
labor quest mis. He criticised hjs
action with regard lo the eight hour
law in smelters, lie blamed Mm for
the defeat of the bill of last session,
by saying that he bad brought ftboui
an amicable settlement between the
employers and the employed. Haw-
Ihorntbwaite blamed the Liberal
parly in the local house for tbe defeat of everv labor bill that was defeated, by saying that luui lhe Liberals stood to a man with Hn1 socialists f.u Ihese hills they Wollld have
been carried against the government
Therefore, be reasoned that Liberals
alone were responsible foe lheir defeat, lie gives Maodonald credit for
keeping intact the eight hour law in
cnal mines. He repeated bis usual
staleinmls about the workers nol
being Interested in taxes, pub Ilo
lands, or natural resources, lie
sail that he Mood for Hie vinikeis'
alone ami did nol care a button for
the commercial interests, merchants
or business men. He did not care
what Imppened lo Ihem, Tb.-v might
go to Halifax for alt be cared. He
fold the workers that they were
slaves, flat if thev had lo go to
Trail or Nelson thev would hive tii
hit the pike as ihey could not afford
lo pay their mill ond fare,
Haw iimi nil waite's remarks throughout were very little applauded,
The audience was dlslIticMy -hostile.
Maodonald answered all these criticisms ami said that his work in
bringing almut ihe reduction of the
hours in smelters by peaceful means
would appeal to everv right thinking
working-man, especially those who
bad gone through unhappy labor
troubles In the past. He pointed
out thai hy this amicable arrangement it had been demonstrated that
peaceable and reasonable means were
the best. These means were not,
those advocated by Hawthorntt-walt*,
who had declared the other day that
there should be no peace between
capital and labor.
Speaking of the eight hour law   in
coal [nines, he said Ihal Ihe eight-
hour law principle li.ul Iwcn adopted
iu mining ami should he uniform all
over ttie province, and lh.it no exemption should be made lo t'.ie law
for one mine, as was sought in llh)
case of one of lhc Nanalmo mitjos.,
He ll-en told the audience ih,- difference between llieoretic.il socialism
and practical socialism as exemplified
by Mr. Hawthornthwaite and his followers in the house last session,
They bad reversed lhe very first plnlik
in ihe socialist platform by voting
uu- Hi-,- transformation of ihe muds
of the people into Hie. bauds uf the
corporations. The man who vn*~
lendisl lo be a corporation smasher
was one of thc most ardent in giving awav to a corporation a    largo
block of Uw hind of Hie people.
He pointed out that Hawtliornth-
waite ai Vancouver had excused Hus
on the plea that two labor hills-
mighl have been defeated if he (Hnw-
tburnthwaile) and bis friends bail
not voted away this laud and sustain.**! the government. The lulls (o
facilitate the transfer nf voters and
Mie weekly wage hill. Macdon.iU
pointed out thai Hie first was ma a
labor bill at all—was Introduced nut
by the socialists, but by Hie nttor-
ncy-^enerai, and was supported hy
every member of lhe house and pas
sed without a dissenting mice. That
the second was defeated in the houso
tire dav before the C. A W. lull was
Voted 'on. Therefore, HnWlhorntb-

,f ihai 1-i to I score at Cranbiook
uui explain the reversal at Lethbridge.
Bui getting back lo thc match tt-
sielf. Lethbridge won un its merits.
I'he total team played lo win from
the start and when they got a couple
ol goals In lhc nets, Craubrook was
la/zlcl and fiom that  time on, tbey
weie outplayed and ,ti times the
match assumed the burlesque, the
.ocal fellows tossing the hall around
with not a Cranbiook man to taunt
There is good sporting blond in
Cranbrook. What other town of its
size, or twice its si/.e, or three tunes
its si/.e, would guarantee $UO0 for a
.pei iai i ram ami net over a hundred
people t'i travel fully live hundred
miles to see iheir team plav lacrosse-
Cranbrook doesn't mind ., little thing
like thai and if Hie LelhtorWge
lacrosse team was half as loyally
supported, they would be in a better
position financially and wuuld be
more encouraged to go out and win.
The tickets on the Cranbiook special,
including sleeper, cost $Ul, and lt is
a sale estimate that Uw crowd wbHe
in Lethbridge spent on an average
of $5,111) a piece. ■ lXi.it means $500
left here m one day. Who says
spur' doesn't pay a city"! Why that
$SO0 would have never seen Lethbridge if it hadn't been fot the lacrosse match.
The Cranbrouk spoils were eager
lo wager 2 to 1 on iheir team winning but thev complained both before
and after the match that Lethbridge
had "poor sports" because Ihey
couldn't get takers for their wagers.
Why one Cranlirook man saitl Lethbridge could have Won a couple of
thousand dullars as easily as not
and he was amazed that we didn't
have the nerve to swallow it all up.
As a matter of fact, and wiih all due
our lacrosse boys, thc
I peuple expected Cranbrook to
win again. That 13 to 1 score at
Cranbrook didn't warrant any wager
nelng made. Then the members ol
ibe local team hadn't any hope ol
Fred. Ho uiev made enough on tlh'
game however to enable him to presenl   lhe local  club  wilh (60.
Cranbrook has an enthusiastic

Improvement of the games. He is

New Westminster, July 14.—George
KdWards, alias Hill Miner, still hope*
for the ultimate success of his lawyer's appeal for a new trial on the
C. P. P, hold-up case,. For this
reason he continues to deny his Identity as tlie notorious Miner. He is
not to be caught napping, either.
Last week George lloben, of Oregon,
came to New Wesi minster to see
Miner, and plead wilh him for his
young brother, who is doing time iu
the Oregon Stale penitentiary Ior
his pan in the Oregon Shorl Line
hold-up of lhree years ago. Youug
Holwn was then only 15 or 10 years
old, got a ten-year sentence for his
pari of the hold-up, bui Miner, who
was always cred led wilh having
planned It, escaped. lloben claims
that his connection with the robbery
was solely due to Miner's persuasive
abilities. He wuuld never have been
near the place hul or dlie growing
get-riili-quick stories told him by
Miner. His brother hoped ihat if
Miner would admit tthat lie had
fluenced the boy, the authorities
might lie persuaded to reduce his sentence. He relied on a worthless
hope, however, fur Edwards is not
admitting anything.
