—Telegraphic Notes.
TORONTO, March 15.—A deal was con
bu mated at Montreal a few days ago by
which the Republic mine passed into
Canadian hands. The Canadians interested are Robert Jaffery, president and
largest stockholder of the Gk be Printing and Publishing Company, Toronto,
the organ of the hheral party in Canada;
Clarence J. MeCuaig, A. A. Ayer and C
Kingman of Montreal, The deal was
put through by Patrick Clark, the former
owner of the War Eagle mine, aud the
chief owner of the Republic, iu company
with Volney I>. Williamson of Spokane,
who wilh Mr. McCuaig, consummated
the well known Wur Eagle deal some
time ago.
The correspondent was shown the official returns fr.nu 4000 Ions of ore sent
from the Republic mine to the Tacoma
smeller. They average over (too per
ton, or $400,000 in all. Out of that sum
Jrao.ooo was paid iu dividends and the
balance included lhe expenses of equipment aud oilier necessaries. The par
value of lhe shares of the original company wns fi each, lhe capital being
$1,000,000. His said that the new organization will have a capital of $2,500,-
000 and will at ouce take steps to transfer the bead oilice from Spokane lo Montreal, It is the intention of the new
company to retain half a million dollars
of stock in thc treasury and lhe full balance will go to tbe present shareholders,
thus giving two shares for each one uow
held. Already a large block of the new
stock has been sold to private parties.
The new company will make application
for listing on the miniug stock exchanges
of Montreal aud Toronto when the organization is completely formed. It is
expected lhat the issue price will be £3,
but thc price already offered really exceeds tbat amount.

Two Strangers Express Most Favorable Opinions of the Place.
R. E. Gosnell, formerly provincial
librarian, was in Craubrook several days
this week. Mr. Gosnell is taking a trip
through tiie Boundary country and the
Kootenays. He was most favorably impressed with Cranbrook, and very much
surprised to find such a thriving place.

carefully looked over the situation,"
said Mr, Tate, "and I am uow sure that
Cranbrook has a great future. I was
slightly prejudiced against tbe place before I came, but after looking over the
field I cau easily see tbat Cranbrook

Arrangements Wilt Be Made let 1 Big Time
July I to 4.
Owing to the fact that Cranbrook is
centrally located and on the railroad, it
has been deemed proper by the business
men and residents of this town that a
large celebration should be arranged for
July ist and 41b, of this year. With this
idea in view action will be taken without delay to appoint the necessary committees, with the membership to include
representatives from all the towns in
South East Kootenay. It is the desire
of tbe Cranbrook people this year to
hold a district jollification, in which all
tbe people of South East Kootenay will
be asked to participate. The railroad
boys will take a prominent part in the
work, and their work tn a celebration is
always well done. Suggestions and assistance in preparing a program will be
asked of tbe neighboring towns, and it
goes without saying lhat, wilh our
neighbors co-operating in tbe work,
everyone who comes to Cranbrook on
those days will have a glorious time.

A Horrible Fire.
New Vork, MaJch 17.—Flames, which
originated from the Uniting of a lace
curtain, hurst forth from the second
floor of the Windsor hotel at 47th and
Eifih avenue, shortly after 3 o'clock,
just as the St. Patrick's day parade was
parsing the building, and in a few min
utes lhey had leaped up to tbe roof and
enveloped tbe entire Fifth avenue and
47th street fronts of the hotel, Ten
minutes later the flame* were roaring
through the interior of the hotel and all
meaUS of escape hy stairways and elevators was cul off, and there was thc wildest scene of excitement within aud without the building Hundreds of tbe
guests and employes were in the hotel
when the fire broke out, and for many of
them, to escape with safety was impossible.
It Is now known that fifteen people
lost their lives, but Ihere are still about
fifty missing. Among the dead were
Mrs. 1.eland, wife of lhe proprietor of
the hotel, and their daughter, Mrs. Kirk
aud daughter, of Chicago, family of the
well known soap manufacturer. It is estimated that fully £1,000,000 iu jewels
and plate were destroyed, and a guard is
stationed to watch the workmen at the
ruins, and each man is searched wben be
quits work for the day for jewels.

C. N. P. Railway Investigation.
Montreal, March IS.—Sir Wilfrid Laurier has addressed to tbe Trades and
Labor council the following reply to certain requests regarding the hardship of
laborers ou the construction of tbeCiows
Nest Pass railway, dated Ottawa, March
[,-,: "On my return from Washington I
considered the report of the investigation made by Judge D'igas iuto the manner In which work hail been carried on
hi connection with the Crows Nest Pass
C. P. R. Directors Want That Amount
for the North Star Road.
This Town Will Be Headquarters
for thc Construction and Operation—Other News.
The annua] report prepared by tbe
officials of the C. P. R. foi presentation
at the yearly meeting to be held early
next month contains many things of interest. The one subject that is of special interest to the people of Cranbrook
aud .South Bast Kootenay generally, is
the request for an appropriation of $300,-
000 tor the "construction of branches
from the Crows Nest I'.iss railway to the
mines.'1 As the North Star branch is ibe
only one tn coutemplattou at this time,
naturally it is reasonable to suppose
that this appropriation is intended for
this particular piece of work. Nothing
official has been given ont as yet, as to
the starting point of the branch, but
every circumstance and all   conditions
point to Cranbrook,    lu fact Cranbrook
is the only point from which surveys
have been made to the mines, and the
only permanent location made so far is
the one made by-eBugmeci Richardson
last fall, from Cranbrook north to Kimberly. A trial line was also run fiom
Kimberly to the Steuiwiuder mini.
If however, some olhet point near
here Iw selected, such as Fort Steele
Junction, which is quite improbable at
this time, the effect will be the same on
Cranbrook. Coder any circumstances
the starting point must be at Cranbrook
or within a very few miles of this place.
The yards, headquarters, roundhouse,
coal bunkers, etc , being located here,
this would be the headquarters anyway,
and traius on the branch would arrive
and depart from here. Iu any event
Cranbrook will be benefitted. She is
placed in a position where she is bound
to win. no matter what is done.
Railroad Notes.
Golden lira: Mr. McCready, lhe timber inspector for tbe C. P. R., has had
his duties so increased lhat he practically lives on board the train. lie has now
to take the work of timber inspector for
the compauy from Prince Albert to Salmon Arm, and has a'so had tbe Crows
Nest road added to his territory.
John Breckinridge, who has a piece of
work on the Nelson & Bedllngton road,
was in Nelson recently. He says that
there are 45 miles of road under construction, and lhat 7500 men are strung
along tbe work. He expects that the
grade will be finished about July i, and
that trains will be running over it about
a month later. The sub-contractors will
not make much out of th-r Nelson & Bed*
lington. What there is to make wilt be
secured by the chief contractors, Foley
Bros., Larsen & Halverson.
Jack Tayntou ii hack at Kaslo from a
recent trip to tbe Windermere district,
of which section he was one of the pioneers, says a Kaslo paper. In 1884 in
compauy with others he left Calgary
starting for tbe Peace river country.
The party becoming discouraged turned
back from the Saskatchewan river, coming southwest, prospecting until Toby
creek was reached. Placer diggings
were being worked on many creeks from
there to the famous Wild Horse gulch.
Jack left Hast Kootenay for the Aius-
worth district In 1H91, and has resided in
Kaslo ever since. There are three towns
in the Windermere district, Windermere
and Columbia City, between Horse-thief
and Toby creeks, near the Columbia,
and Athelmore. The two latter are new
sites. Butte capitalists are exploiting
some of tbe properties on Toby creek.
A number of Kasloites are interested in
the district among which may be mentioned G. O. Buchanan, Geo. Stark and
partner, Wellington Kinnee, Jim Desmond, J. li. Bigham, Dick Gallop and
Jack Tayuton. Where the ground can
be irrigated ranching is successfully carried 011, while stock thrives in tbe foot-
bills and valleys. Jack turned some
stock loose on the range eight years ago,
and without any care or trouble he found
himself the possessor of a small herd on
bis recent visit. His brother had attended lo the yearly branding ol them.

as square a man as the Lord ever placed

people. We will ffllsfl him, and miss
him sad'y. He was true blue, through

would be a princely one.

River Days Before the mar.
Ml'lMELL, the chief of Murrell'a
gang, took pattern after .Mike
Fink, Sum QriHy and "Col. Plug/'and
bis depredations were ub terrible and
far-reaching as any of the pioneers of
his profession,
Mark Twain, in hla "Life on the .Mississippi," calls Murrell a wholesale rascal to disi i ui*u ish him from Jesse .lauies'
retail rascally deeds.   "What are James
and his half dozen vulgar rascals compared with this stately old criminal,
with his sermons, bis meditated itisur-
reciious, and wary captures, und hia
majestic following of 1,000 men, sworn
lo do his evil will."
Murrell seems to hnve been a moat
dexterous, as well as a consummate
villain. When he traveled his disguise
wns thnt of au itinerant preacher, and
it is said that his discourses were very
soul-stirring and so Interesting to
hearers that they forgot to look after
their horses, which wore carried away
by his confederates while he was
preaohlng. But MurreU's most lucrative occupation was stenling slave* to
sell them in another quarter. He had
a peculiar way of managing thut part
of his business, One of hia men would
tell a negro, for example, to run away
from his master and allow him to sell
him to another, whereby he could secure half of the money paid for him.
Then the negro was advised-to run away
tlie second-time, return lo thegangand
be sent to a free state by them, where
he would be safe. Many poor wretches
complied with this request, hoping to
obtain money and freedom. They
would -lie sold in this manner three or
four times, until the Murrella hnd realized $3,000 or $4,000 from the repeated
sale of one mnn. After this, for fear
of detection., the method would be to
get rid of the only witness against
them, which was the negro himself.
He was murdered and hiB body thrown
Into the Mississippi river.
The general rendezvous of this gang
was on the Arkansas side of the river,
where they concealed their negroes in
the morasses and cunebriHies. Though
It was well known that Murrell was the
head uf this gang of outlaws, it wus
difficult to obtain proof against him,
A young mnn named Stewart finally
gained his confidence, turned traitor
and exposed the whole concern, bringing home sufficient evidence against
Murrell to send him to the penitentiary for 14 years.
It was found that a good many men*
who bore respectable names in the sections In which tbey lived were connected with MurreU's gang, and every effort
wns mode to discredit Stewart's statements. He wns obliged to leave the
southern states in consequence,
One of the most daring deeds of the
notorious outlaw wns the rebellion he
Incited in New Orleans, his object-being
to raise the blacks against the whites,
taking possession of the city In the
melee nnd plundering it at leisure. The
story, is told, by Oapt, E. W. Gould, one
of the oldest river captains, now living
in New York. Capt. Gould collected It
from accounts furnished hy the mnn
Stewart, who vouched for its- correctness, nnd declared that it wns told htm
by Murrell himself at the time he was
in his confidence.
"I collected all my friends about New
Orleans,*" snid Murrell, "at one of our
friend's houses at that place, We sut
in council three days before we got all
our plans to our notion. We then determined to undertake the rebellion nt
all hazards, and make ns many friends
as we could for that purpose. Every
man's business was assigned to him,
nnd when all was ready the signal was
given for the rebellion to break loose,
The history of It Is well known. Suf-
flee it to Bay that we carried off thousands of dollars In horses, cattle, and
other movable property, and killed people without number who were in our
Another noted outlaw in the early
part of thc century was Mason, the highwayman of the Natchez Trace, who Infested the canebrakea near Walnut
hills, from where they boarded many
a bout, killing the crew and carrying
on* the cargo.
A story well remembered by old-time
St. LouiBuns Is thnt of the murder of
young MeKenzie oa the steamer Nellie
Rogers. Young MeKenzie was the son
of 11 prominent merchant of St. Louis, a
most estimable gentleman, who was at
one time nn Indian trader on the upper
M Issotiti. The elder MeKenzie luul married a squaw, Indian fashion, and raised
a family of liulf-brwds, a part of which
he took to tlie states and educated.
Young MeKenzie, then about .10years
old, hud returned to hlvtribe, the Crows,
married and was living at Fort Peek,
He, with his wife and young child, together with a large number of Indians
of both sexes and of all ages, hnd en
camped on the bank opposite where the
bout was discharging. They all had
access to the boat, and were constantly
passing to and fro*
The bar on the boat had been closed
by the order of Charles P, Chouteau,
the owner of the line, and no excessive
drinking was allowed. They hud orv
board ns a passenger all lhe way from
Rt. I-ouis a Mr, Clark, formerly from
Philadelphia, a quiet, gentlemanly man
of education, who for ten or twelve
years hud heen living among the Indians ut Benton.
After the boat had been lying there
for several hours Mr, MeKenzie came
aboard with others and stepped into
the cabin. Just ns he got abreast ot
the stove in the hall Clark enme out
of his stateroom, one of the first iu thu
cabin, with pistol tn hand, nnd without
a word fired nt MeKenzie. The latter
fell dead, shot through the heart. His
wife, with her kindred ami friends, was
among the first to rush aboard. The
excitement among the Indians became
The crew and passengers, too, were
btid.lv frightened, apprehending summary veugecce from the Indians, who
were entirely masters of the situation.
The tires were oul. and no steam could
be hud to move the bout for several
hours. All Unit seemed to stand between au outraged body of fighting
Indians uud the Nellie Rogers wus ltev.
Father De Smet, for many years a missionary and manager of Catholic mission?* among the Indians, lie happened1
to be on board the bout, us he frequently wns on expeditions of 1 bis kind, lt
was decided that Clark should be. disposed of. fur It was evident Hint there
was no safety fnr the. It-out while he remained on board. PonicB were secured
from the traders at Fort Peck, 1" miles
distant, who bud come to see the steamboat, Clark, with two or three others,
who were anxious to get to Fort Bon-
ton, started with very little preparations, Before the Indians had got over
their consternation. Chirk, whom none
of them knew personalty, hud got beyond tlie reach of their fleetest horses,
and, through the influence of Father
De Smet, they probably never pursued
Among the passengers on the Nellie
Rogers on that day was "Tom Dorrls,"
a young man from St. Louis, bound for
the gold mines at Helena. He was one
of Clark's companions in the Gilpin
race. The riders tnive.resed the distance of 200 miles in three days. The
cause for thc murder of young MeKenzie was never definitely ascertained.
It was believed that an old grudge existed that was to be settled vn thar way
whenever the parties met. Nothing was
ever henrd of Clark afterward beyond
a letter written by a gentleman living
at Findlay, O., In 1889. The story here
told was published In a Cincinnati paper
at that time, and the anuouncement
wns made of Capt. E. W. Gould's forthcoming book. Tfhts gentleman, who requested that his name be not used,
wrote thnt he met Malcolm Clark nt
Fort Benton in 1802. Clark, he said,
was a man to be feared, but a gentleman when not angry. He was married
to a beautiful half-breed girl, with
whom he seemed to live quite pleasantly. .She had a brother named Isadora,
who made his home with Clark ami
'hunted and traded with him. In 1865
Clark moved to Prickly Pear creek nud
located a ranch there. For some reason Clark became cruel and overbearing to his wife. After enduring it for
awhile she appealed to her brother for
protection. He and Clark had an altercation, in which Isadore shot and
killed him.
On the 3d of January, 1844, the whole
city of St. LouIb was thrown into consternation and feverish excitement by
the report that the steamboat Shepherdess had been wrecked in Cahokla
bend, only threw miles from the pfpnter
of the city. Many lives were reported to
have been lost, Several boats were immediately dispatched to the scene of the
disaster, and the worst rumors were
soon verified,
The Shepherdess, while ascending the
Mississippi river on her way from Cincinnati to St. Louis, struck a snag ut
tl o'clock at night just above the month
of Cahokia creek. The night was dark
und stormy. The concussion was severe, and several planks were torn from
the bottom of the boat. There were between CO and "0 passengers on board.
Most of them had retired, but four or
five gentlemen in the cabin were sitting
around the stove, for it was cold, winter
In less than two minutes after the
beat struck the water rose to the lower
deck, where most of the passengers in
that part, of the boat were asleep. The
captain ran to thc cabin occupied by the
women and assured them that there was
no danger. Then he returned to the
forecastle and Is supposed to have been
washed overboard, as nothing was seen
or heard of him afterward. One of the
pilot** attempted to descend Iuto the
hold for the purpose of examining the
leak, but the rush of water quickly
drove him back.
Shrieks of distress arose from the
deck below, and several women who ran
to the stern railing reported that they
saw a number of persons struggling In
the river. The water rushed in with
tremendous rapidity, nnd before three
minutes had elapsed it had risen to the
floor of the upper cabin. Some persons
on the upper deck saved themselves by
getting Into a yawl, which was cut-
loose and rowed to the shore with a
The rapid rise of the w-itcr caused all
those who could to seek safety on the
hurricane deck. This position was not
attained wit hout great difficulty, for the
bow hud sunk so deep in, the water that
the only access was by way of the stern.
Meanwhile, the lioat wiut drifting down
the stream, and a few hundred yards
below she struck another snag, which
rose above the surface. This threw the
steamer nearly on her beam ends on thu
tnrbonrd side.
Drifting from the snag, she again
lurched to starboard. With every lurch
several persons were washed off. Some
of them reached the shore, but many
were drowned. A short distance below,
just above the first shot tower, tho hull
struck a bluff bank, which again careened the boat nearly on her side. The
hull and cabin parted, The former sunk
and lodged on a bar above Carondelet,
While the cnbln floated down to the
point of tho bar below thnt place, where
It lodged and became stationary. As
the cabin passed the steamer Henry
Bry lying ot the shot tower, its captain
heard the frantic cries of the passengers, ne went to their rescue in his
yowl, but only a few at a time eould bm
taken off,
Among the passengers was Col.
Wood's famous "Ohio Fat Girl," who
weighed 440 pounds, «Ste wns saved by
the combined efforts of Ca|St, Robert
Bullock, of MaysvRle, Ky,, and several
other men. The mayor of St, Louis,
■who personally assisted In relieving
the sufferers, caused all who were saved
to be taken to the Virginia hotel. It wns

Mr. David Walsh, of Carleton Place,

and ii now an employee of the C. P.
Railway, says, " While in the army I got
broken down, and mv nervous system
was completely shattered.
" I was much troubled with liver complaint, loss of appetite, etc. My rest became broken and was disturbed by vivid
dreams. This bad been going on for 14
years, although I took a great many
remedies to escape from the troublcf
which nfHicted me.
" However, I got no relief until I
started to take Milburn's Heart and
Nerve Pills, which I used together with
Laxa-Liver Pills, and now after having
used a few boxes, I am better than I
have been for years. My nerves are
restored to full force and vigor, I eat and
