Toronio, Oct. 23.—Investigation nt
the honks of tire Ontario bank, which
is being proceeded with, has led to
some further disclosures of rather
startling nature regarding the manner iu which the affairs of the hank
were conducted by Uie officials responsible, li is alleged that assets
which had actually no existence, were
carried on the books nl the bank, giving tho Impression that thc bank was
iu a much stroiigot' financial position
ilun was really tlto ease.
There was, tor instance, an Item ot
$778,000 carried under lire head nf
"Other Securities," which securities
were not in existence at all. It also
appears that a loss ol $185,000 ac-|
crued in stock transactions carried on
through Ure agency ot a prominent
New York agency.
To protect the Ontario stock in Ure
open market thc bank, at different
limes, purchased $220,000 of ils own'
.shares, which it now holds.
This, of course, would reduce securities tu creditors in case the double
liability of shareholders is called upon.
It is pointed out in financial circles
that such stock could not have heen
accumulated. Losses by speculation
In Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway
.stock are understood lo have amounted to $170,000. These four items
give a loss of $1,053,000, whioli deducted from lhe paid up capital ol
$1,500,000 and $700,0011 reserve,
leaves hut $537,000 of a margin
wherewith lo bear anv possible loss
upon $12,000,000 of discounted paper
in thc hank.
Items tinder lhe head of "Other
Securities" and lost margins in
peculation through a New York
brokerage firm it is said, have been
ried on the books and in government returns as bona fide assets for
nre years.

than Thomas W. Leask, having previously secured considerable limits to
lbe west  of  lhe St,   Kugene hospital,
launched the liisl sash and dour factor)) over operated in the Crows Nesi
dislriel. ll was evident bo hun
llut il there was a large profit In
shipping lumber in the rough, "i surfaced on one side Ol four. tllOW
should be a biggei profit in advancing

lonn oi doors, wainscot, window

thousand uth.-i things turned out b>
aueb establishments Having "'en
own limits the inm had lumbei at
tbe lowest possible figure ol cost, so
that what Uw raw material cost and
what ii sold ai ui the market as a
iini.sh,il product represented a most
attractive    margin ol profit,    it ti
now glowing un Baltic ol our local
ui.ii that there was a deal In Mr.
Leask's point ul view. Imitation is
saul to be tht moat sincere lonn of
(lattery; tho surprising tiring is that
the Battery was not lu public evidence
long ago.     ll is coining, though.
In lime Mr. Leask .sold oul of the
local sash and door concern, which
has maintained Ks career of prosperity and continues lo extend Its
operations even till to-day. But to
live a lite uf what has been called bv
some master dlalectatlon "Innocuous
desuetude," was an impossibility lot
him, then-lore, lie sought and found
au outlet lor his capital and a held
lor his activities in the lumber areas
around Creston where Ite secured
some thousands uf acres of excellent
limits consisting of fir, bull-piue,
while pine and larch.
Coming easi Irom Nelson the entrance, or vestibule, of the home ol
tin- great lumbering Industry ol the
Crows Nest district is marked by
cars loading a I McNeelie. siding vi
ihe C. 1\ H. wilh lumber from
Leask's new mill which is situated
abonl a mile to the south-west of
ihe tracks. McNecllc is about three
miles at Ibe Cranbrook side ol t'reslon in the middle nl thai wonderful
fruit growing land which is now attracting such an amount ol attention
from horticulturists all over the country. When the limits now,being logged over by Mr. Leask are cleared
tbey vvill be divided into convenient
lots for those who desire to invest
n fruit growing laud, and ibis intent imi was Kept steadily in view
[rom the time lhe ground was acquired. Some two thousand acres
vvill be available for ibis purpose.
The mill is equipped with two engines, one of 12 x lfl ineh stroke, the
olher being llxlfi. Krom these two
units the entire plan) is driven and
ihev furnish ample power to produce
from 35,000 to 80,000 feet of lumber
every working day of ten hours. The
holler is nl greal pi wer and alone supplies holh engines. Natural draft is
used with automatic feed from thc
saws and planers. The automatic
feed is shut down al night bul the
watchman sees to it that pressure is
kept on the sleam pump and Uiul
ready tor the morning's work. Large
1-litre is a sullicient bead of sleam
circular saws are used with the lop
saw. The carriage feed is at present
of tlte Soule pattern but this will be
soon replaced by a gunshot feed.
The four saw edger is supplied from
live rolls with a right angle shift to
the trimming saws. "The carriers
operate under the main floor of the
mill and cany the limilter direct to
ilie sorting "tables right at the
back of Ihe two large planers, both
of the McGregor-Gourley make.
Slabs, wasle and edgings go direct
from the live rolls to loose rolls
along which this material runs by
gravitation and falls into a deep
gulch about a hundred yards beyond
the mill where it is burnt wilhoul
any possibility of danger lo the
buildings or piled lumber.
Advantage is taken of a mountain
stream al lbe back ol the mill to
carry a Btlpply of excellent waler to
the mill premises for domestic and
sleam purposes. The flume is ear
tied right into the boiler room and
liy means ot a powerful sleam pump
placed in that apartment thorough
protection from fire is provided for
all parts of lhe mill buildings. In
all parts of the mill cau be seen
evidences of Mr. Leask's well known
mechanical ingenuity.
Adjoining the mill are the mens'
shacks, quite patterns of what those
structures should be. They are ol
sufficient solidity and thickness to hi
cool In summer and warm in winter
Near-by are thi; cook house, black
smith's shop nud office.
The lumber goes to McNoclie siding
by wagon over an excellent road with
a slight down grade all lhe way tu
tlie tracks. This road vvill soon lie
provided with rails over which much
larger loads can be hauled with
greater speed nnd at less expenditure
of energy. Nad rails heen procurable when Uie road was being c,,n
stnietcd llicy would be in position
now.
As iln> Umber is all close by the
mill the logging is iM'iiifc dime vvith
horse 1 rucks. I/,iler in the season
when lbe snow anil ice make lhe best
nf logging mails and alelglie will Input iu rcqui-iitioii to get in the main
supply of logs. Hel ween mill and
woods employment is given to about
forty-five men the vear round, representing a pay roll'of almut $2,01111
per 111.(iiiii, exclusive of lhe cost nf
provisions tor 11 bands and ihe keep
ol ibe horses.
This concern is ihe latest addition
lo lhe lisl of shipping mills and belongs to the iiiusi approved class ot
money-makers. There is marked
economy all round. The owner centralizes in himself the ofllces of
manager, accountant, mill wi'iglit and
general superintendent. With his
intimate knowledge nf the lumber
business in all its details, from the
logging tii the saw and from tihe saw
io the market, such a combination of
diversified responsibilities come easily to him.
A special* feature to be noted Is the
while pine lumber turned out here.

SECONDS OFF   WORLD'S RECORD ON BELMONT
TRACK.
New York, Oct. 16.—Rosebcn, D,
C. Johnson's gchllug, son of Ben
Stroine-Kosclcaf, proved his right to
the title of champion sprinter of the
world here this afu-rnoon, when he
slipped three full seconds off Uie
world's record lor seven furlongs over
a circular course, aud eclipsed by one
and twu-tilibs seconds the record that
.ias stoiHl for ilil years for seven fur-
tongs straightaway.

mile iu I.ii, carrying 12(1 pounds ot

-middle and defeating the onlv 0titer
.nil')' in the race, Ucaucaire, exactly
one sixteenth oi n mile. Incidentally he won fur his owner, "Plunger
liavy" Johnson, $30,000 iu bets, despite tbe fact that ho ruled a-t odds
uf irom 1 io inu and 1 to 1000, wiih,
of course, no lakers in ihe    big ring.
Kosebcu was dropped Inlo a condition race under the lightest weight.
ue has in a spring ibis season and hi*
scored out 12 of lhe 11 entries. In
the clubhouse before the race Davy
Johnson announced thai ihe big
iirown fellow (was in tho best shape
.hal be bad ever been and thai be
would bang up a new Hack record.
Uut lhe club house commissioners
doubted this and they Iaa Johnson
$10,000 ihat tbo track record of
1.25 2-5 held jointly by Uruuildalc
Nymph and lhe two year old Newell
iVOUid not be eclipsed.
Johnson ihen announced that he
would wager any part of $10,0110
more that his big sprinter would
■■qual oi" heal the world's record uf
1.35 flat. 'This being taken ho bet
Hilly Dubois $10,000 additional thai
when the time was hung oul il would
ue faster than any other horse had
ever covered thc seven furlongs distance over any kind vt a track,
straightway or otherwise.
When Trainer Frank Weir gave

liim to rale his mount fur a quarter
■ if a mile and ihen to come on home.
There vvas no delay at the barrier
and bulb horses were aligned as
Starter Cassidy pressed the electric
OUt-ton and lhe webbing flew up. That
was lhc only time in the race that
Beaucaite was ever near Kosebcu.
In three jumps the big sprinter-
he weighs 1500 pounds—was half a
length in front and the further he
went 1 he easier he wenl. Shaw Hied
vainly io hold him back, but it was
like trying to .'■weep back the ocean
with a broom and vvith mighty leaps
and hounds Rosoben plunged on down
ihe back sl retch and aruiibd lhe lirst
lurn. Shaw held him close to lhe
rail and it was not until he was
straightened away in tbe long Belmont stretch thai lie started to urge
him.
Rosebcn responded nobly and under
a strong hand ride he came home
alone, Beaucalro passing ulie sixteenth
pole as Roscben's hooded head
caught tho judge's eye. When the
time, 1.22. was hung uui it was
■yreotcd with wild applause and the
nig horse was given an ovation when
Shaw came back to weigh out.
Rosoben pulled up hardly drawing a
long breath and cooled out in condition tc start tomorrow should it
Tie necessary. Ilis figures of to-day
are apt to s 1 and f 01 many
years, as there is no other horsi
either in this country or abroad cap

WORTH OF STOCK IN ALASKA-
YUKON—PACIFIC     -EXPOSITION  ASSURING ITS
SUCCESS,
Seattle, Oct. 80.—A ten million
dollar fair three years from now—
that's what the town ol Seattle, the
stale of Washington, and the Pacific
North west! are looking forward to.
The start has been made, a wonderful
stait, by tbe raising of $1)511,000 iu
one day through the sate of stock in
ihe exposition corporation.
Octobox 3 was a gala day in Seattle
the biggest day the Washington
metropolis evei had. lt was known
as Subscription Day! the mayor, by
proclamation, made il a holiday, ami
ibe si,,gaii "Everybody Helps,"
adopted in Will ll. Pany, chairman
ot the ways and means committee,
was made a reality. There was a
const an I How ol checks and gold up

the Alaska building, when the lem
pni.iM headquarters ol the exposIttlou
have lurn established,
The lau already gives promise of a
scope yet uiiatiainetl liy western en

Pacific Exposition, contributes an
Idea oi tin- general nature of Uio
show. it will be primarily an
Alaska fan, held to exploit to the
world lbe resources of the liltic-
known norUilauit, and iu this connection will Ih* gathered the most remarkable mining display ever shown
at a world's fair. Tlie cold thai
made the country originally famous
will be told of through specimens and
photograpts ami machinery, and the
other ores more recently discovered,
will have proper representation. And
more important, the agricultural and
Industrial possibilities will bo effectively exploited,
Besides Alaska, the great Yukon
country vvill contribute samples of ils
Untold Wealth, and the islands of thi'
sea will show their marvels. Otto ut
tb,- principal objects of the exposition
vvill be to bring together In trade the
shores of the I'acilic. With a population ten times as great as the United
Stales, occupying a territory three
limes the size of Uncle Sam's domain, Asia and Oceauica produce
enormous quantities of wares which
Americans mighl use, while on lhe
other baud, they need millions of
dollars worth ' ol goods made,in
America, To bring the two together,
through th,- medium of exhibits, will
Im* lhe object of the Seattle fair.
State participation in the Alaska-
Yukon-lVilic Exposition is already ,,
certainly, and the United Slales
government is counted upon to pui up
a building or series of buildings, and
make a display worthy of the richness,
of the land. The Western States
learned through the Lewis and Clark
Fair h'ld last year, the advantages to
be gained through generous participation iu national exhibitions, and can
he counted upon to make even better
displays Ihan those which helped
make " the 1(1(1.1 show attractive.
Oregon ti. certain to have a fine building, stuffed 1 with products, and California, always a good show state,
vvill be Ihere. Idarc, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and the other
states, and well as the British possessions to the north, will In- adequately represented.
With nearly three years remaining
before the exposition, the beginning
of preparation bas already lieen made.
The Wash ing ton University grounds,
comprising 355 acres, bordering ou
Lake Washington ami Lake Union,
have heiti chosen as a site, and landscape gardening will soon be begun.
The site is situated twenty minutes
ride from the center of the city, ami
is in every way adacpted to its purpose.

DICK TURPIN IS OUTDONE
ROBBER  ASSUMES COMMAND
OF DOZEN GERMAN OFFICERS.
Berlin. Oct. 16.—A unique and daring robbery was committed at Coepc-
niek, a small town several miles* east
of Berlin, this afternoon. This robber, in Ithe uniform of a captain of tho
guards, met a detachment nf. 12 men
on a street In Berlin, who were returning from target practice. He
produced a forged cabinet order
aiithorwing him to take command.
The men recognized his authority,
and he then'ordered them to march to
Cocpcnick, Upon arrival there they
proceeded to the town hall, arrested
burgomaster and the treasurer
and took possession of the cash,
$1000.
The robber det-ached several c.t his
men to conduct the prisoners to head
Ottawa, Oct. 23.—J. Bruce Walker
has been appointed to take charge of
lha Canadian government immigration service in Loudon, replacing W.
T. R. Preston, who has undertaken a ...
commercial mission to the far east the
to promote Canadian trade interests
in a field whose future is almost unlimited.
Mr. Walker is of Scotch family and         ,  __
lived fer a numlber of years at Brant- quarters in Berlin and ordered the refold, where he was attached to tho mainder to hold possession of tho
stuff of the Expositor. For some , town for half an hour. He then rode
vears he lias been Canadian immlgra- off in the direction ol Berlin with the
lion agent at Glasgow, in which posi- money. The burgomaster and treas-
tion he has had a splendid opportun- urer were greatly mvstifled at the
ily 6f equipping himself for the larg- meaning cf their arrest. Upon tiieir
er field. i arrival in custody at headquarters in
The commtsslonershtp of Immlgra- Berlin they learned that the nstensi-
tion, which Preston held for some bid captain was a fraud and were im-
ve.irs, has been     abolished.     Walker mediately     discharged.      The bogus
botiglu the stoch al this price ami
held on, but they were luckier still in
ihc fact ihai in his stock operations
in the province uf Quebec, Mr, Graves
succeeded in interesting men like Mr,
Miner. Of course a dotation modelled on the lastiioitaole basis of thai
wine where three-foiirlhs ul ihe slock
was vendor's and promoter's, and lhe
remaining onc-tourth was treasury
stock, slaughtered at a few cents per
stare, could have only one end, unless some public-spirited bolder oi
gromoter s stock, both willing and
anle, should hold the slock up, ami
this is what happened to Ironsides,
the stock ol which was kept around
thc dollar mark all the summer oi
lHll'd. Next year, however, came Uie
killing frosl when slock bubbles were
bursting on all sides, and Ironsides
and Knob Hill, in spile of a strong
hand behind ihem, dropped in sympathy to '10 or thereabout and stayed
ai Unit for many long months lo
follow. Bul work which in tin-
nineties was more or less tentative
and haphazard, especially in the earliest stages, was never allowed tc
cease, Mt. Miner's dollars supplying
the sinews ot war.
Thv advent ol the railway brought
the. turning point, in this sense, that
they must either quit or go on; for it
was up to them now to either shoulder lhe burden of building smelters or
throw up the sponge. Organization
and re-organIzation became necessary
to finance lor altered conditions and
graver responsibilities, and Granby
Consolidated was the "result. Such
affairs are generally attended with au
alarming shrinkage in the holdings ol
the little stock holder who paid his
ten cents a share for original treasury
slock, 'bul to Mr. Miner's credit, be it
said, there was no snuffing 0m of the
little fellows and purchasers of ten
cent shares in 1896, who stayed with
it, ate holders of Wi stocks t^-day,
without paying a farthing ot assessment.
What with the labor strikes and
the low price ol copper, those early
days of operation of the one and two
furnace smelters, were the days that
tried men's hearts. Ninety-nine out
of every hundred men possessing Mr.
Miner's wealth that had been made in
oiher lines of industry, would liave
concluded to throw no more good
money after bad and would have quit.
Had he done so at the most critical
period, the blow to the Boundary
would have been so great that it is
doubtful whether the B. C. Copper
Co. would not .have gone down in the
general wreck, and Boundary's busy
hills would have remained silent for
many long years.—Hedley Gazette.

Mr. Cranston told the people ol Cian-]

who have lived     in  the populus ecu-1

seven years in Cranbrook, has mode a
reputation for being a powerful
speaker, and lis sermon uexl St.n.lay

best, il uot the the best Uut was
ever heard in Cranbrook. 'lhe departure of a man from a pulpit,
alter seven years of service, is a
great opportunity iur a masterful eflort, All who can should be at the
I'resbyterian church next Sunday

The Herald would like to see lie
eity council take up lbe proposilioa
that the Herald has advocated for tlo
pasl four years, and thai is io prepare a handsome case [or exhibiting
lhe products ot Uiis district, an 1
have it placed in a commanding position on the C. V, ti. platform. lu
thai case should be a complete selection of ere from the properties of
this district, showing where located

of lhu St. Eugene, Sullivan, North
Star and Stemwinder ore, wiUi brief
description of the properties, samples
ol placer gold irom Perry Creek and

when possible, grains, vegetables,

of this district, those susceptible of a j
finish so arranged. Wilthin a monlh

will all ,st0p at least ten minutes at |
Cranbrook and there will be thousands of people each year passing
through Cranbrook who would in this
way have an opportunity lo learn
something of the resources of this
wunderftit district. It is now time
for the people of this eity U, wake up
to the opportunities open for advancement. Build up the district ami
in this way you will lay the foundation for a greater Cranbrook. The
time to act in this matter is now.
It might cost a couple of hundred
dollars, bul it would do thousands of

The Herald's suggestion that

quite a numlbcr of people, judging by

It is understood that Mr. McCowan, who was defeated by Mr.
Baker, and Mr. Morton, of the C. P.

I lo'iwl upon any false charge made in

made againsl     me and I    challenged

prove that I made any false sta't*-
ments and to take a ballot of lhe
whole uf the miners employed at

Uiing false in my letter cr not. The

truth of my    statements was    never  ingenue pari nf "Nancy,"   the wailing
questioned as the majority of the men
present know that they were correct?,
The report iiever mint inns anything

situation has changed ver) llttlo,
anl notthlng ol an Important nature

his position as president nf the local

Moore, leader of ihe Socialist parly
in the city, was elected   presilient in
bis place.
President Sherman has imt yet taken the public into lus confWence in
denying nr discussing the charges
made a^a-insl Inm by Dicken, and considerable disappointment has ln*en felt
by his friends lhat be should allow
the opportunity nf vindicating himself
to pass by. Another mailer which
is the cause nf much speculation on
tbe part nf the public, and no doubt
on tint part of lbe miners as well, is
lhe apparent apathy of President- Mitchell. Has he been fully acquainted
with all ibe tacts connected with the
strike and whal is be goinp to do
about it.'' are the ipiestinns frequently
asked. If Sherman lias been indiscreet in railing this strike, as the
public (generally believe, he. would
naturally want tn bide bis error from
bis chief in lhe vain hope that a
settlement might lie made before it
was discovered. In the meantime

some time ago, and Mr. Campbell's

high. It i.s claimed the tender was
about $j,o(M) above the department's
estimate, Since then tlie matter has
iM-m at a standstill. At an executive meeting of lite Fernie Libera] association hold last Friday a resolution was passed urf-ing W. A. Oallf-

Dr. Corsan reports that he has
twenty cases of typhoid on his hands.
Asked as to the probable cause of the

undoubtedly was owing to the unsanitary condition of tne town. Dr.
Corsan is of the opinion that there
will bo more fever unless something
is done. It is up to the city health
board to clean up the back lanes and
improve the present unsanitary conditions so as to reduce to a minimum
the danger ol a furtker epidemic.

or two trips mote up the river as far
as Pirlamls. She took down all the
ore at the landing, save about a half

THE TURNIP Ml ST GO,
Caiiiphellfunl Herald:—The precautions taken in the early spring tu discourage farmers from feeding lurnips
seem tn have borne fruit. At the
Cheese hoard in Tuesday the salesmen
were asked as to whether turnips
were fed in the various factories, aul
it was found that only five factories
out of the twcntj'-nve which hoard
checs-e here fed turnips. Several factories which I'ave used turnips fm
feed have stopped the practice, and r.
is now generally understood that tin-
buyers will cut prices vvlcre tbe tui-
nip flavor prevails. Jt is, therefore,
to the advantage of faclorymcn ni t
to feed iiunips, leaving out of consideration altogether the damage tu
our reputation as a dairy province.

But il seems natural enough 1l.1t the

on September nth the Victoria
Times announced that Hon. Richard
McBride had resolved tu appeal In
Ihe country before another session uf
the bouse, and ibat the legislature
would dissolve ou bis return from
Ottawa from a mooting uf the provincial premiers.
Il was also stated that the election
wnuld probably be held in December
of this year.
Immediately,upon the announcement
being made it was challenged by the
premier, and was denied in an explicit way by the daily government
organ. This denial was amplified by
those weekly and monthly supporters
of Un- administration, which entertained lively liopcs of favors bo cotue
and learned disquisitions ou the
ethics of mu* i I'i.-.'n i» men who
haven't learned its alphabet wero
written with a view of convincing tlw
premier that his lesser minions were
more zealous than shose who ure
supposed to voice his views in tbe
dally press.
Tie Times reiterated Its statement
and the events of the past two weeks
have Verified in every particular the
information available when Ibe article of Sep torn ber t~th appeared.
Al that time lbe lirst minister Was
preparing to leave for Ottawa to at
tend ihe conference of provincial premiers. He already had his plan of

Wealth does not always make a

Rockefeller. Perhaps llu- manner of
its accumulation has something to do

made their wealth by cold, deliberate
scheming, In whicli tho elemental
human passions played little part.

li is the method by which his riches bave been acquired wbieb has made
Mr. Rockefeller ihc victim of bis
suspicions. By devious ways, by Uio

SNAKES DESTROY  BIO   DAM
LABORERS    REBUILDING      Till'
STRUCTURE 1 NCOVER THOUSANDS.
Oconto, Wis.. Oct. 13.—Did snakes
cause the destruction of the Farm
dam ai Mountain, which went mn
lasl spring'.' (leurge Merliue, who
has relurneil frum Mountain, where be
was employed on the dam, tells a
si range story that would Indicate an
affirmative answer.
Melliue says  that  some of   Lhe men
employed in the wmk nf rebuilding
the dam were busy one day lasf week
with their pickaxes and peavlcs, when
they ran across a small bub- nol more
than an inch ami a half iu diameter,
oul of which Iwo or Uiree .snakes
were protruding their beads.
One of the men drove his pi-avy Into Hie bole, and immediately lhe
.snakes began sliding oul of it. Thi
workmen, ho says, killed thousands
of the reptiles, and it has been impossible for them lo exterminate
Ihem. Every time one of tho men
gi.es near lhe hole lhe snakes slick
iheir heads uui uf it and hiss.
The snakes may have boon Ute real
cause of lhe ilatn going out last
spring by digging holes in the approaches, Il must be interwoven
with snake alleys and .streets. Tbo
camps are located ahoul live rods
frmn the bride, and be savs it is bard
to get the men to retire at night, as
Ihey   are iu   constant    fear of being
awakened by the snakes.
Monday morning one of thc men
found live snakes iu nis bunk, and
vesiertlav another found one In bis
"itirkey.'" Ile did n it discover il
umil he had readied Mountain on his
way l0 Oconto. While feeling for
something in Uw bag bis hand came iu
contacl wiili something cold and
clammy, and be pulled it out. Il was
a snake, and be threw it un the platform.
Mr. Merline slales that the men dug
Into the river bank, where lho snakes
emerged frnm ihe hole, and found
hundreds of eggs, from which, wlien
broken lhe snakes would slide out,
curl up and hiss al lheir lormonlors.
A.s manv as three snakes have como

The snakes are spoiled, nml 11 Is
believed Ihey are whal is known as
