Tim- Ol-l Mun haa been taking a rent,
so far hb his column waa concerned Ibe
past three weeks, but doing a double
•lull on other work. In the future he
will try and be wltb you each week,and
iluiiQK tbe coning year, expects to have
many good talks with you about Crao-
lnuok. tbe people, their tine aod folllea
their [{nod tralta and peculiarities. Ilu
man nature ia l ureal study, aod yet
when It comes to giving eipreuion lo
opinion it heroines a diffi ult taak. We
ave made aeveral people indignant by
ma "obaervatioDa" in tbe past ami il
onr health holda good, and the beefsteak supply ia unilimiiiislieil we will
mn up the bile ol a few more during the
next twelve months. Fifteen yeaia ago,
we were fooliab enough to try to pleaae
everyone in tbe publication of a paper,
and we made a failure of it. Now we go
-.head regardless, trying to act ou ibe
• quart, and If wc offend ll haa to go.
There are a lot of thinned akin individ-
nsla who are tickled to death if they aee
nine one else bit, but if a left handed
reference is made ol their mongrel pup,
tbey are up in arma and want to atop tbe
paper hy withdrawing their support.
And right here it might be well to remark that ai a rule the mau who threatens to withdraw the support from a
newspaper   la   never   dangerous.      Hia
upport generally consists of an unpaid
And speaking of support, reminds us
that thin ia the first of the year, tbe
great settling lime aud we want to aet-
tie up. There are people owiug ua that
have no license to owe any newspaper
publisher. Tbey tbluk it ia a juke. But
with drafts coming due and do coin, we
know it la not a joke. We have seen
some of those chaps spend enough lo
one night making good fellows of themselves to pay us several tines and when
we ask for our money give us tbe same
old standoff. That manes us tired, and
ifter this we propose to collect some of
these bills. This new Arm of Beale,
Hutchison & Klwell are great collectors
aud tbere are a bunch of fellows In this
district that we have been very Henent
with, (hat will hear from tbem gootl
and strong.
An Iowa editor was evidently worked
up to tbe Unit when he published
the following : "The lady!,?) wbo
recently called the attention of another
to our patched breeches, whereat both
laughed ao heartily, ia informed that a
new pair will be purchased when her
husband's bill is settled. It haa beeu
due nearly s year. Don't criiiciae a
printer's dress too closely while you are
wearing ailk with nouey due ua. Tell
you husband to send ua f-4087 and save
the cost of a lawsuit. We need another
pair of pants."
We received a check for to on subscription this week Irom a belated subset ib r. Tbere are a few nore who
could do a power of good by squaring
accounis in thia way, and we want
them to do it nest month. We can't
tend tbem The Herald as a gift nor do
we propose to do it any longer, but after
sending out statements, will place the
subscription accounts in the hands of
sn attorney for collection. In fact it
Likes a lot of nerve for a nan to read a
paper year after year, and pay no attention tn statements sent. What do
they imagine a newapaper man Uvea on,
ami pays bin employe*.' Ita time to settle or quit with us, and if you want to
read Tbe Herald you will have to come
up with the coin. Aud you can't save
yourself hy having your postmaster return the pa-pcr marked, "not wanted."

Will   Hate   a   Kuad lulu  Spokaiie
Means  Better   Railway   Facilities
For Cranbrook  And
This District
It is evident that tbe C. P. R. will invade the United States and Jim Hill's
territory to offset Mr. Hill's entrance
with British Columbia. The following
from tbe Spokes man-Review will explain the aituation:
"Articles of the Incorporation of the
Spokane & Kootenay Railway company,
which ia lo connect Spokane with tbe
Canadian Pacific system, were filed yesterday in tbe office of County Auditor
Hubbard. Tbe incorporators are D. C.
Corblo and Senator George Turner of
Spokane; Jacob Furth, president of the
Puget Souud National bank of Seattle;
ex-Governor John H. McGraw of Seattle
and Charlea S. Bibler of Tacoma, formerly assistirnt chief engineer of the
Northern Pacific railroad. The capital
stock is placed at $3,000,000, divided
into shares of $103 each.
The articles of incorporation declare
the purpose of lhe company "to locate,
construct, own, use, maintain, operate
and enjoy a standard guage railway,
with single or double tracks, as tbe corporation may determine, beginning at a
point in or near the city of Spokane,
state of Washington, and extending In a
general northeasterly aud northerly
direction, vii Pend d'Oreille river and
lake, the Kootenay river and tributaries
to a point in Kcotenay country, Idaho,
on the International boundary between
the''United States of America and the
dominion of Canada, a distance of 300
miles, more or less, all in Spokane
country, slate of Washington, and
Kootenay country, state of Idaho, for
tbe transportation of passengers,
freight," etc.
Senator Turner yesterday said:
"There is really very little I can Bay
about tbe matter beyond what the snides show on their face. We intend to
build the road, and will commence work
early in the spring. A recounoissauce
of the route has already beeu made and
just as quirk as the wealher will permit
we.will follow that by securing our
right of way, either through negotiation
or condemnation. We do not yet know
where we wilt enter tbe city of Spokane."
"Is thiB road backed by thi Canadian
Pacific aud does ll mean terminal rales
for Spokaue?" was asketl.
The senator did not make a direct reply* ■
"The incorpo store," he said, "are
amply able to build the road themselves
and I see no reason for tbe assumption
thai somebody else is behind them.
•'You can say this, however," continued lhe senator, "that this means a big
thing for Spokane. It means lower rales
ami the opening up of a vast teiritory
to thia city. There are ninny things in
connection with tbe road tbat I am
unable to make public at this time.
"You can say further that the company now has tbe money on hand lo
build the road. Its construction will
cost probably over $4,000,000. This
thing la gi ing through without any
question. Mr. Corblu's record ai a
practical, successful railway builder is
too well known to need any elaboration
from me. He Is to be president of tbe
company. Mr. Furth is tbe millionaire
president of the Puget Sound National
bank of Seattle aud ofthe Seattle Electric company, which owns tbe entire
street car system of Seattle, as well as
the new and splendlly equipped inter-
urban line which connects Seattle anil
Tacoma. Governor McGriw's ability
as a business man is known throughout
the state, and Mr. Bihler is a practical
engineer and has held a high position
with tbe Northern Pacific."
S-uaior Turner admitted that he
would be general counsel for the new
road. It is idled on high authority
that Senator Turner is now the chief
legal adviser for tbe Canadian Pacific
railroad in this section of the United
States. It is said that he was retained
in thai capacity on hia recent trip to
Montreal, and that when his term in the
senile expires in March he will open a
law office ln this city. Senator Turner
haa been out of the active practice of
law for several years.
Senator Turner has made several
trips to Montreal in the last year, and
those who are in a position to know say
that he has been working all these
months on a plan to bring the Canadian
Pacific to Spokane. Those who are 00
tbe Inside say that if the Canadian Pacific builds to Spokane, aa there seems no
doubt of iti doing, Its principal purpose
can be to make this a distributing center
for this section of the country, and that,
in order to accomplish this purpose and
get the business, it will give Spokane
terminal rates."
This will eventually mean direct communication to Spokaue Irom this district over a competing line, and Cranbrook may he made tbe divisional point
at this end of tht new line.

Next Thursday is New Yeara.and generally apeaklug la the beginning of a
new year. It la tbe great swearing off
time, for some reason or other. Pei-
baps after a man has thoroughly celebrated Chilstmas he reels like sweating
lR on New Yeara. Well, it won't hurl,
even if you don't stick to it, and lis
twenty to one you won't. There are
tlnukarda and diunkarda. A driukard
la a man who takea a drink of liquor
now and then, and a driukard is one
who takea a drink of water now and
then. But water don't agree with some
people and booze don't agree with oth
eri. Chriitmaa comes but once a year,
and tbe nan who cau't loosen bis heart
strings on that day and forget the worries and trials of life Is most unfortunate. Some may err by becoming too
enthusiastic ln their celebrating, but
tbe lives of saints and sinners are made
up of nlstakes. So here's to a happy
New Year! May yon all be prosperous
and happy, and come to the close of
nineteen three thankful tbat you have
lived.   Drink her down.

London, Out., Dec. 37.—A frightful

freight on the Grand Trunk railway, at
Wauateail, a station on tbe Sarnla
branch, antl according lo latest reports
thirty persons were killed and thiry-five
Tbe passenger train was running at a
high rate of speed. Tbe freight waa
under slow headway and was lo have
taken a switch at Wanstead to allow tbe
passenger to pass.
Apparently neither engineer law the
danger in lime to avert tbe accident,
for the engines came together with a
frightful crash, overturning Into tbe
ditch. The bnggage and expreas cars
telescoped into tbe smoker with appalling results.
The wreck waa complete. It is
thought hardly a single passeuger in
the smoker escaped injury. The other
cars of the passenger remained on the
track. The work of renoving the dead

A Deadly SiowilMe.
A snowslide at the Motley Gibson

the moving mass of suow and carried a
mile or more in their night clothea
down the canyon. The suffering ol
those who passed through tbe ex
perlence adds another chapter to tbe
story ofthe dangers undergone by those
engaged iu milling.

Good Advice.
Phoenix Pioneer: It you are a business
man, go to your local paper ami do
business with the editor, not on the
charity proposition, but on A purely
business basis. It will be motley In
your pocket if you do it in tbe right
way. and attend lo your advertising. If
he is the right mau in thc right place,
no man can do more for your town, aud
consequently for you, than the editor.
It li tbe best investment you can make
on a small scale.

A recent Washington despatch announced Unit the United States
iSt-nute had pushed u bill providing
$H,000 foe thu rollel of Jeun -Louis
JLegare of Canada, for services rendered and money exponded in procuring the return of Sitting1 Uull to
the Uni'U'd States. Mr, Loguro is a
French - Canadian, now living ut
Three Rivers, Sitting Dull huving
cut Custer's force tu pianos und escaped to Canada, rewards won! ottered by thy United States Government for in*, return. Independent
efforts were niadu to procure his

at Wood Mountain, south of Heglna,

Dull, wiiii his fuur tUutisand lodges,

to supply the bunds of Sitting Hull

Aa this was not a profitable custom

Mr. Legare finally convinced them
of his good Intentions, and persuaded them io complete tbe journey to
Fort Bufoi-d. North Dakota, where
the Sioux Chief and bis followers
surrendered to Major Brother ton.
The old chief, however, demanded
that au extra di*v be allowed his

beiirtlful midsummer afternoon

Town," us thu treat)' grounds at St
Peter's reserve ure so aplh termed
in local vernacular, says a writer in
Winnipeg Free Press, The fresh
breeze from tbe lake sweeps up tin*
river, making tho sultry sun enjoyable us the steniner threads its way
between the forest-clad banks and
through tbe murky waters of the
Red, revealing at every turn a laud-
scape uf loveliness where every spot
is  fturrouniled  by  a,  halo  of  roinnmu
of thu days of tho voyageur and the
After the Confines of tho reserve are
passed the effects of civilization on
the aborlglneo become at once apparent and Impressive. The rich land of
the reserve—for it is indeed a cholco
section of the country—is dotted with
tbe comfortable, little, neat, whitewashed log cabins each surrounded
with its patch ol corn and potatoes.
They are strikingly different from the
smoke-tanned tepee of the nomadic
children of the prairie.
A trip of six miles through this interesting scenery brings the sightseer
to "Tent Town" where the dusky
wards of the nation and allies of the
King are paid according to the stipulations uf their treaty, Every man,
woman and child burn iu legitimate
Wedlock is entitled to participate if
he acknowledges the roservo as his
home and is bound by ties uf blood to
the denizens thereof. The treaty
grounds are beautifully situated un a
gently undulating slope from the west
bank uf (he river and are permanently marked hy the presence of the
council chamber, a building located
somo distance from tho water. The
sight those grounds present at treaty
time is really picturesque to those to
whom it is novel. The banks are
lined with boats, ennoes and big une,
two or even threo musted schooners
built uud sailed by the indiuns of
the  upper  lakes   who   have  journeyed
down to bo present ut the great tribal festival of this portion of thu
Crees. The grounds can be compared only witli nn exaggerated idea of
a circus or the side-show portion of
the county fair. A village uf CttllVnfl
springs up like a mushroom where
the visiting population of .several
thousand souls ure housed uud accommodated; where the noisy trader
who. like thu circus fakir, seems tu
be everywhere and always intent on
securing possession of the crisp new
treaty haul.' notes from their guileless possessors in exchange for gaudy trinkets, showy prints, shopworn, shady dress goods nml rcady-
madu clothing from the bargain

fruit und confectionary, it is at perfect pandemonium, The a aricious
eyes of tlie sous of Abrnlinm fairly

It is a motley crowd tlmt throngs
the grounds.   There Itf the old  gener-
ation represented by one ur two Irreconcilable brines of bygone days
who cling to tlie customs of youth
tenaciously und scorn the finery and
luxury of civilized clothes for u
blanket, moccasins und it handful of
foul hers. The councillors, austere
nml reservedly sedate, are easily distinguishable by their plug bats and
the airs of authority that they assume, one of them particularly so
because oi his striking resemblance to
Sir John A. Macdonald in facial expression. The likeness is really remarkable. There are the fishermen
from the upper hikes, cow-boys from
the plains nnd young men nnd women fushionubly ultired. The last
ure the younger portion of the community who havo experience .the benefits of a training in the Industrial
schools. Many of them follow the
trades or serve behind the counters
and carry but faint traces of a dash
of the Indian blood, Hundreds of
children are running, crawling and
veiling in all directions. Their number Is equalled only by thut of the
dogs among which are muny
big capacious rapacious, voracious,      mondaclous     huskies,    the
tort op       of       the       stranger       and

Passing down the streets of tents
bv the busy traders to the centre of
the grounds one comes to not the
least interesting attraction of tho
whole—the dancing platform—whero
the dusky devotees of Terpsichore
work off tlio exuberance of youth. It
is partially covered with boughs to
protect, the "orchestra" from the
rays of the sun. but the dancers seem
tu enjoy the heal, which without exertion, makes the pule lace lung for
an icehouse. A wrinkled old half-
breed, whose white locks curl from
under his slouch felt hut nnil cluster
around his face, bronzed by whiter
snows and summer suns, sat on an
old packing case in the corner, dispensing music I'usl and fearsome from
a squeaky old violin whicli he sawed
with an industry worthy of a better
cause. His moccasined foot beat
ceaselessly on the floor uud n continuous smile illumined his countenance, but whether it resulted from
the contagion of happiness frum the
dancers who were tripping through

Tiiere were two sets on thi
dudhih young fellow acting us master
Of ceremonies and  he  was  sunn-thing
of au artist t >o, for his "calling off"
was seldom allowed to get monotonous. As tho violin tor« ott shreds ol
"The C|i| I Left Behind Mo," he
started the ball rolling by shouting;
"First couple to the right ami bat-
mice four," "Pass riglit through and
balance there and swing with the
girl behind you." This last call
was frequent 1} varied by such expressions as 'Swing the one with the
big boots on," "Hurry up Sally or
you won't get around." And Sally
ulwuys hurried.

uud then promenade to scuts and tlie
lemonade stands, A tew moments
afterwards the strains of the "Irish
Washerwoman" rent the air and Instantly lhe platform Was the scene of

•Tied Hiver Jig," danced us only the
Metis can dance it, Was iu fast and
furious progress, As a boy 1 have
often watched the buck dances on the
plantations of the South, but seldom
Indeed haVo 1 Seen the same amount
of energy, enthusiasm und perspiration thrown Into any form of diversion or dissipation ol the kind as
those tawny children uf tlie prairiu
threw Into  that jig.
The loud voice of an orator, for he
Was worthy of the title, addressing u
small assemblage of his people near
the council chamber drew tue away
from this scene of merriment, It
wus Chief Prince, who has since been
gathered to the happy hunting
grounds of his fathers, a towering
personality umoug his people, uud u
line specimen of the full-blooded lu-
diuil, so seldom found either ou or
oil the reserves, typical of his race
before the white man's vices corrupted and demoralized it without any
of the restraining Influences of his
virtues. Although he wus speaking
iu the dialect of the Ores it was almost Impossible to refrain from
catching some of the enthusiasm
which his wolds kindled in his people. His subject, so an old half-
breed told me, WaS'the advantages lo
be gained from adopting civilization
and the religion of the white brethren, with a linn advice to thom to ho
patriotically true to the Covernment
und their treaty. These addresses
were regular features of the program
and were delivered with all the fervor
that has mude the Indian orator
I Inside the council chamber the busi-
: ness of lhe occasion was constantly
> in progress, as members of the treaty
filed in nnd the inspector ami his
I clerks after due investigation of each
' claim und making proper entries paid
over the crisp new Dominion bank
five dollar bills. It Is a delicuto
tusk  to    perform   to    conduct      tlie
I searching   Investigations   sometimes
: necessary   to protect  the Interest   of
tho Government without giving   offence to the supersensitive redmen.
j     Towards   evening   the   strains    of
band music drew old aud young to u
] pretty spot near the inspector's inar-
! que  where  the    pupils of St.   Paul's
j Industrial   school   were   performing
their callsthenic and military exercises and evolutions for tlie edification of their parents and visitors to
the reserve. Scrupulously clean in
their appearance' neatly dressed and
showing a remarkable proficiency In
their drill tllOSe scholars contrasted
strikingly Willi the older generations
or their less fortunate brethren who
have never enjoy»d the advantages
offered by the Industrial- Bvpry turn
Ik applauded heartily by the dusky
audience squatted around the arena
uud smiles of pleasure frequently illumine countenances that ure usually as undemonstrative as the sphinx.
Those pupils by their appearance
and performance have done much to
remove the prejudices of race and
paganism, end each year make the
securing of inmates for the industrials
u task of ever decreasing difficulty,
Herein is contained the secret uf the
only practical or efficacious means of
reforming uud Chi'istlaui'/iug the noble redmen.
Wo were still Watching this Interesting spectacle when the coarse
whistle of the excursion steniner culled us hurriedly on buurd for the delightful return trip, leaving us all
utill wondering at the sights we had
seen where civilization and the remnants of barbarism commingle.
