Qoes Down With Thirty-One Passengers
Aboard—Nine Drowned.
The steamer Ainsworth, that runs on
Kootenay lake, was swamped last week.
Nine people were drowned, twenty-two
escHping in life boats and on a tug.
W, j. Kam, engineer of the boat, tells
the story as follows:
"Wc left Pilot Bay at 0-43 p. in, and at 7:30 we

Joseph  Tacler, 1   Section  Laborer, Meets
Wiih a Sudden Death.
Last Saturday Ben Lagasen and two
men were going over to work near the
last siding iK'ur the west end. A train
was Been coming nud the handcar was
1 Lit- fii off the track until the train passed.
Afterward the car was placed on the
truck again. Joseph Tacier, one of the
men, had a rifle with him, and he care-
lesstv shoved it on the car, holding it by
the barrel with the muzzle pointed
toward his stomach. The trigger caught
un some touts and the gun was discharged, the bullet passing through the
unfortunate man's body in the upper
part of the abdomen. Word was sent to
the siding for an engine and Dr. Green,
and when help arrived the party started
for Crnnbrook wilh Tacier, but he died
before they reached the city. Coroner
Watt was notified and he came over
Tuesday night. He investigated tbe
case nnd decided that an inquest was
The deceased was from St. Cassimer,
Quebec, and had been on the road for
some time.
Sidar 1 New Town.
Near the west end of the Crows Nest
line, at lhe point that is to become the
junction with the new Bed ling ton St
Nelson rond that is now building from
llonuer'a Ferry/ a new towu has been
stat ted. It is named Sidar. Warehouses
arc in course of construction and six
new hotels are going up. It promises to
he a lively point during the construction
of tho new road this winter.
The New Und Refutation.
Colonel Henderson, who purchased a
large block of laud on Moyie lake and
expended a big sum of money on improvements and surveying, is one of
those who are hit by the new land regu-
tiou of the present government. All
thut he would receive would be the
money paid for the laud, and his improvements would be a total loss if this
system of confiscation is enforced.
There are quite a number of others iu
this locality who will be victims, as it is
understood that about $4000 have been
sent to tlie officials at Fort Steele for ie
rtiuding to the purchasers of land.

The rivalry between the two stage
Hues between Cranbrook and Fort Steele
gives the public the best of service. It
is not au uncommon thing for one or
hotti of the stages to muke the tt ip of
twelve miles in an hour or lest,
The excursion of businessmen of West
Kootenay to the principal points of East
Kootenay, along tbe line of the Crows
Nest Pass railway, at the invitation of the
C. r. ra-, is ..u^oti ii/w m •••-'•ess, if
Cranbrook's introduction to the big-
hearted men of the sister territory is any
criterion. Tbe party arrived at 100'clock
last evening ou a special train from the
west, 105 strong. They were under the
material direction of F W. Peters, district freight agent at Nelson, and the
spiiitual and moral protectiou of Rev.
Frew, of the same place. Both men had
their hands full, and each one seemed
eminently fitted for the position-he filled.
Immediately upon the arrival of the
train the members of tho party, hungry
and tired, were escorted at once to the
Purdue block, where the banquet tables
were loaded and in waiting. Formality
was dispensed with and within ten minutes after the arrival of the train the
guests of the evening were busily engaged, stopping long enough at the start,
however, to rise and give three rousing
cheers and a tiger for Cranbrook,
When the cigars were passed Mr. A.
Leitch, as chairman, and Messrs. J. W.
H. Smythe and F. B. Simpson as vice-
chairmen, took their respective places.
Mr. Leitch In a few appropriate words
welcomed the guests to Cranbrook, and
expressed the gratitude of the people of
East Kootenay for such a generons outpouring of the people of West Kootenay
at this time. Then followed the toasts
and responses, and there were so many
good things said that it is a pity they
cannot be reported in full, hut it would
take a book to do justice to the occasion. The guests felt happy and contented, and the people of Cranbrook
likewise. The remarks constituted an
intellectual feast that was as thoroughly
enjoyed as were the viands that had been
so eagerly attacked.
The Queen was the first toast proposed,
and everyone rose and sang "God Save
the Queen."
"Our Visitors" was next proposed,
coupled with the names of K. D. Green,
M. P , Kaslo, Hugh Sutherland, thewell
known capitalist and Rev. Frew, Mr.
Green spoke briefly, thanking the people of Cranbrook for their hospitality
and giving expression to the hope that
all might meet again under such favorable circumstances. Mr. Sutherland said
that the party had expected a good deal
from Cranbrook, but that they got far
more than they expected, and it was a
surprise and pleasure to all. Rev. Frew,
pastor of the Presbyterian church at
Nelson, proved to be the humorist of the
party. He said he came as the chaplain
of the contingent and that the duty was
by no means a sinecure. He admitted
that there were one or two from Nelson
that were not total abstainers, although
tbe party was substantially a gathering
of temperance meu. He found the married men the most difficult ones to handle, and that if he succeeded in keeping
them from breaking the whole ten commandments he would feel lhat his mission was not in vain. Tbe reverend gentleman kept the whole party iu a roar of
laughter and ceased talking under protest.
Rev. Ball then sang, and he was received with enthusiasm.
"British Columbia" was then proposed by Mr. Smythe, with the names
of Judge Foiin of Nelson, and Judge
Hutchison of Cranbrook, Judge Forin
was warm in his expression of thanka to
tbe people of Cranbrook, aud spoke interestingly of British Columbia and her
future. He thought East Kootenay
would now make rapid advancement,
and that Craubrook had bright prospects indeed. Six months ago he had
visited Cranbrook, and it had taken bim
four days to come from Nelson, Then
there was little here. This time he had
made the trip in a day with comfort,
and found in Cranbrook a thriving city
and the highest type of intelligence and
Anglo-Saxon cordiality. In closing be
said that when the people of East Kootenay visited West Kootenay they would
try to extend the same bountiful treatment.
Judge Hutchison sald'that the native
and adopted sons of British Columbia
are loyal to British Columbia. The people of Craubrook, a town that only a
few months ago was a prairie, now a
thriving city, had reason to feel loyal to
British Columbia. It was the duty of
all to throw aside petty jealousies and
sectional strife. The country was large
enough and rich enough for all, and by
working together the people of West
Kootenay and East Kootenay could
make this part of British Columbia the
brightest j;wel in the empire.
Chairman Leitch proposed the toast
Our American Cousins," adding that
he .considered it one of the most important on the list, and presented in Us
connection the name of Dr. Armstrong,
United States consul at Rossland. The
doctor said he was not a talker. He was
■ citizen of the United States, but had
been a great deal in Canada, and he felt
like the girl who was asked by the minister if she wanted to go to heaven or
hell, and replied: "It don't make much
difference to me. I've got friends in
both places." He waa glad to be present,
but his speaking reminded him of tbe
story of the man who prefaced his address with the statement;. "If I make a
failure I will eclipse my most sanguine
expectations." The doctor sat down
amidst uproarious applause.
"TheC. P. R." with the names of F.
W. Peters, F. P. Gutelius and Archie
MeKenzie was next presented, and this
brought forth a general outburst of good
feeling. Someone cried, "What's the
matter with Peters?" aud there came
back an answering chorus of such vigor
that it is still resounding through the
hills around Cranbrook, "Ile'sallright."
Mr. t'eters bu... nc w.... * - r.. .-nt
maker, but before be got through everyone appreciated the fact that he was all
right. He said lhat Chaplain Frew had
bet-u endeavoring to maintain order and
he bad been trying to turn the boys
loose, and be would leave it tothecrowd
who had been the most successful.
He referred to the new relations between
East and West Kootenay that would follow tbe completion of the Crows Nest
Hue, thanked the people ^of Cranbrook
for their generous hospitality and closed
with a story that brought down the
house. Superintendent Gutelieus, of
Rossland, spoke upon the importance of
railway transportation as a factor in the
development of a new country, and what
the advent ofthe C. P. R. meant to the
people of South East ^Kootenay. Mr:
MeKenzie, "the only Archie," like most
ot the others, took a stray shot at the
chaplain, invited Cranbrook to the Rossland carnival and thanked her people
for the magnificent entertainment they
had provided.
The toast "West Kootenay," was proposed by Mr. Simpson, coupled with the
names of D. B. Bogle, of Rossland, aud
G. A. Buchanan, of Kaslo. Both of these
gentlemen spoke most entertainingly
of the rapid growth and wonderful resources of West Kootenay, giving much
information of a valuable character.
Each of them freely predicted as rapid,
or even a more rapid growth for Kast
Kootenay from this lime forward.
Mining Interests" was then proposed
by Chairman Leitch, with the names of
J. R. Robinson, of Nelson, Colonel Topping, of Trail, and F. Fletcher, of Nelson, Mr. Robinson sent a shaft or two
at Rev. Frew, thanked the people of
Cranbrook aud Invited them to come to
Nelson, and expressed the opinion that
it was profitable for tbe Kootenays to
stand together. Colonel Topping, one
of the oldest mining men in British
Columbia, hastily reviewed tha history
of mining in the Kootenays, beginning
with the Wild Horse and taking it to
the present. Mr. Fletcher touched up
the chaplain, and then spoke of the
mining possibilities and probabilities of
East Kootenay, which he thought would
equal West Kootenay.
J. D. Sword, of Nelson, sang In his inimitable manner that beautiful and
touching ballad, "Drill, Ye Terriers,
Drill," assisted by those present. T. G.
Proctor tang most divinely that southern melody, "Alabama Coon," and Rev.
Ball favored the guests with another
"The Press" waa presented by Mr.
Smythe in glowing words, with the
names of Mr. Wilkinson, of Vancouver,
Percy Goodenrath, of Spokane, and F. E.
Simpson, of Cranbrook, and everyone
joined in singing "They Are Jolly Good
Fellows." Mr. Wilkinson gave two
recitations that captured the audience.
Mr, Goodenrath told a story, and Mr.
Simpson made a few remarks.
Mr. Simpson proposed the last toast
of the evening, "The Learned Professions," with tbe name of William
Ross. Mr. Ross was received with cheers
and made a most pleasing talk.
After a few remarks by Messrs. Peters,
Leitch and Smythe, and singing "Auld
Lang Syne" and "God Save the Queen,"
the people dispersed, voting the banquet
a success in every respect
Tbe catering was in charge of J. M.
Leonard, and considering the fact that
he had very short notice, limited facilities and an increased number at the last
moment, the results were most satisfactory, and be has received no end of
The Quests.

A number of men were sitting close to
the hot stove in the Mercantile company's store one night last week listening to Jake Fink tell how to build fire
proof cellars, when the question of
strong winds came up. One of the
crowd said that he thought Crows Nett
lake was the windiest rpot he ever saw.
Another, who had Spent some lime in
"bleeding Kansas," told of the wind
blowing the grain off the cars of corn in
that state. Just then a chap who had
said nothing but listened quietly, asked:
'Say, have any of you fello.vs ever been
to Macleod? Talk about wind' Well,
you can get it there. I spent a week
there once, and couldn't leave town till
I paid a tailor J1.15 for sewing on every
button on my clothes. Blow? Why,
you never saw anything like it. Bob
Evans hnd a sign painted on the west
side of his hotel. Next evening it had
disappeared. The wind bad blown the
paint right off the board*;. Last fall
they had a very severe wind storm that
blew all the barbs off the wiie fence
around the barracks. It is impos-ible
to wear whiskers uuless you remain indoors all the time. The ladies use railroad spikes for weights at the bottom of
their skirts, and no man wiih false teelh
dares to open his mouth while going
from town to the station. A pet dog belonging to Editor Wood, of the Gazette,
was blown up against tbe water tank
about 100'clock in the morning. It was
impossible to reach him and he remained until sundown, when the wind
died out and he dropped to, the ground.
It is a common thing for the hair to be
blown off the cattle until they look like
a herd of large Mexican dogs. These
statements are facts, and if anyone
doubts them, ask Barnhardt Well, good
night, gentlemen," and the man from
Macleod disappeared through the front
door into t*ie cold, cheerless street.
There was silence until Juke Fink recovered bis breath and murmured in a
weak voice, "Let's visit the cellar."

One night about a week ago quite a
party got off the train from the east. A
number stopped at the Cranbrook house.
Among them was a gentleman who is
noted all along tlie line for his jokes and
eccentricities. Stepping up to the bar
he asked about a dozen friends to join
him, slating to the bartender that all
would take whiskey. The customary
glasses were placed on the bar and the
usual qnestion asked as to the particular kind of whiskey that was wanted.
"None at all," said the gentleman.
'Keep your whiskey," and placing a
small grip on the bar to tool- out a bott'e
of '83 and proceeded to wait upon each
man. The whiskey was disposed of, and
turning to the bar be said: "Good night,
gentlemen," and went to h*s room. A

Laidlaw, wbo officiated so successfully
as the colonel's agent, fell in with Hob
Mathers, the lieutenant of the Baillie
fjrees, and, by the way, a good stiff
political fighter, The result in the town
of Fort Steele had just beeu announced
and thc Baillie men were feeling jubilant.
Laidlaw met a number of thein at the
Dalganino, and they began at once to
give him the jolly josh. Undaunted,
and with the air of a Napoleon, Laidlaw
pulled out a roll of bills and waving it
aloft, said: "Gentlemen, talk is cbeaf,
but money counts in this country, Here
is $500, and I'll bet it from ten cents up
that Colonel Baker is elected. If that ia
not enough I have another '."joo or $ 1000
in the bank." The play was a strong
one and he failed to find a taker. Speaking of it afterwards, Joe said: "I would
have been in a devil of a fix if they had
called me. That bunch of money consisted of just five one dollar bills. But
the bluff went."

The application for a charter to build
a railroad from Cranbrook north to
Golden, that has been made by Messrs.
Tupper, Peters and Potts, solicitors, is a
further evidence of the importance of
Crat brook as a center. Thee gentlemen, it is stated on good authority,
represent a wealthy syndicate that is desirous ol" tapping the rich mineral territory between the two points named with
a railway line. The syndicate also asks j
for the power to carry on mining, smelt-
Ing and refining operations in connection
with their railway. j

There is no questioning the fact lhat
the inatl service iu South Kast Kootenay
i« far from what it should beat this time,
cuiisidering the advancement made in
tbe country. Tbe Moyie Leader protes s
against the evident discrimination
against that town, as shown by the fact
lhat although application was made for
a postoffice nearly a year ago, still
nothing has been done to give the relief
sadly needed in postal matters. Oilier
places are com plain! tig, but as yet
nothing hns beeu done.
Regular trains are running from Macleod to Cranbrook, and within a very
abort time, a few days at the outside,
passenger trains will be running from
Cranbrook to Lake Kootenay, and by
boat to Nelson. If the right thing is
done by the people of this district the
government will lose no lime in arranging for transmission of the mails over
the Crows Nest rond, both from the east
and west. Located nn this district is, in
the eastern part of the Province, a vast f
amount of mail [matter goes nr.d conies
from tbe coast and central portiots of
the Province, and also the uorlhwestern !
aUtfs. Under existing conditions all of
this mail is subject to vexatious delays
caused by the circuitous route it reaches
this district. The idea that a letter from
Spokane, ^Portland, (Vancouver, Rossland or Nelson should be ten to fifteen
days reaching Cranbrook is preposterous,
in view of the fact that regular trains
will be running before January i that
will furnish direct connections with
West Kootenay and the const.
There is a large population in this district, and it is rapidly increasing. The
towns of Cranbrook, Fernie, Port Sleele,
Wardner, Moyie and other thickly settled communities arc deserving of better
treatment at the hands of the Dominion
government, antl Tm. Hkkai.u believes
that when the postal department fully
appreciates thc situation it will lake immediate action; at4lea»t, it hopes so.

The news of the great robbery filled nil
tbe papers the next morning, cunning
Intent* excitement, used hh it, grout olty
like New York la to during crimes committed whilo the populace slept.
The cleverness nnd boldness of tho
affair proved thnt it Imd bcun executed
by a shrewd man of unusual ability,
An insurance company had been the
"The man must hnve known tho interior of the building well, also the
affaire und movements of the company,
to judge bo accurately the best time to
ply his calling," so entd the police.
A large fire had taken place up town
Borne weeks before. The firm had been
Insured with this company. The amount
of money Involved was a largo one—two
hundred thousand dollars ln cash was to
have been paid to the Arm's representative tbe following morning. The money
bad been placed carefully in the safe, the
combination Bet, the gas turned up to its
usual height, and the office locked ln the
ordinary manner.
The night-watch and private patrol
had made their rounds, as was their custom, carefully scrutinizing the interior
of the office, of which they had a clear,
unobstructed view as they pnssed. Nothing of an unusual or susnJe'.ou'j nature
was observed.
At exactly ten m'\ ;*tes to midnight the
alarm from the safe, which was connected by wire with the main Office, commenced ringing violently.
Three of the best men from the nearest
precinct were Instantly dispatched to tho
scene of the robbery. As they ueured the
corner, they observed a man slip quickly
Into a dark doorway across the street. By
the time they gained the building, the
man had reached tbe fourth floor. They
pursued, capturing lu his gallery Andrew
Carr, the photographer, who kept the
All the money, carefully lubeled, together with other papers of tbe Insurance
company, was found hidden away behind
a pile of rubbish, proving beyond a doubt
that they had captured the right man.
The papers spoke pityingly of the beautiful young girl left alone ln the world,
who was so frantic over tbe terrible disgrace which had fallen upon the father
whom she declared to be Innocent, as she
would yet succeed In proving. Her lifo
would be given up to it. She would never
rest until tho real criminal was brought
to Justice, and her poor, hapless father
So many people were drawn to the
gallery br the papers' description of the
rare beauty of the girl—they remembered
■wing a picture of her ln the papers
once representing Spring—that the landlord, who had Intended to evict them,
suggested to her lt might be as well to
keep tbe place herself, m her father
would have great need of the money to
engage a lawyer to defend hlm. The trial
would be apt to be a fierce one, for tho
young district attorney who had lately
been elected to oflice wuh n mmi who
waged bitter war against tlio i-rimit-.nl
"I will see this roan," cried JeUJ
Carr, "und if he has any mercy in his
■out, I will plead with him to show lt to
my poor lather, If ho Is young, lie enu
not be so cruel of henrt ns the people are
all telling me," she Baid, Wringing hor
hands together. "1 will lose DO time In
going to him in my lather's In-half."
The girl put this resolution into dxoou*
tion nt once.
The business of the dny had nut yel
begun in the district attorney's office, The
desk whleh held Important documents-—
that meant life or liberty, Joy or dlaaitOT
tn many a trembling wretoh who wm
pacing anxiously upniid down llie narrow
confines o(  the dark cells bolow—-win
can-fully locked,
The shades had boon raised to the top
of the window by  the olerk,  who wns
busily etiguged lu dusting the books,
■topping at momentary Intervals to nny
to the stereotyped Inquiry of the people
who put their heads in ut the iloor uk*
Ing for (he distrlut attorney, that "Mr,
Van Driscoll would not be at llie ofllce
until nine o'clock,"
Hn Hat down In an oflloe-ohalr liy the
window lo enjoy a few moments with the
morning i-aper before the day's hurry nnd
hustle tiegnn, being deeply Interested In
the great insurance robbery, when the
door opened again, lie looked up with
a muttered Imprecation at U-Ing thus Interrupted at tho point of the most absorbing Interest, when he beheld standing
beforo bim a young girl, plainly dressed,
but with u fuce bo fair, despite Its intense
pallor, that lt start led the susceptible
young olerk.
-«rose abruptly, advancing toward
A sweet, clear voice said :—
"If you are the district attorney, will
you please spare mo a few moments!-"
"air. Van Driscoll will be in vory
shortly," ho answered. "Will you step
Into his private offico and wait?"
The young lady followed him into tbe
inner ofllce, taking the scat ho placed for
her. He could see that sho was highly
nervous. The voice which thanked him
had a suspicion of a sob, bravely kept
back, ln it.
'' Would you like to look over the morning paper, missf" be asked.
The voting girl drew back with a look
very like terror ln her large blue eyes.
"No, no; please do not leave lt," she
replied, faintly. "I—I havo seen it."
He bowed, taking the "Herald" with
him Into the outer office, and as he drew
the door to after him, leaving It slightly
ajar, he could not help but wonder who
the district attorney's early visitor was,
and what her business with him could
He had not long to ponder over the
matt-a, for the door soon opened, and
Hr. Van Driscoll and two gentlemen,
Who had held the some position thut he
now occupied, entered tho'offloe.
They were discussing the all-absorbing
topio of the great insurance robbery,
"It will be a groat trial," remarked
one of the gontlemen, "I fanoy tip sym*
patby of the people will be with the photographer, on account of—" I
"I do not Bee why lt should be," Interrupted James Van Driscoll, Impatiently. "The elvdence against the mun
iw, to my mind, conclusive. He was reduced to desperate straits; he hud evory
means of watching the operations of the
insurance company across the way; be
knew tho habits of its officers; ho learned
ln some way of tlio iurgo amount of
money to be paid out, nnd laid bis plans
most cleverly to capture it; he was
caught red-handed In tho net, as It
were, the monoy and papers being found
in his possession. Why should he not be
convicted, I should like to know? This
waste of pity on crijn irutin Ib abominable.
I shall do my utmost to insure tho man
the full penalty of the law. "
"I do not doubt it," laughed one of
his companions, carcloesly. "Your antagonism toward tho criminal classes, in
bunting them down and driving them
out of the metropolis, is to your credit,
I suppose. When I wus district attorney
ln this old offico, I was too easy with
"I shall make up for It," aald James
Van Driscoll, thoughtfully. "I will suppress these peoplo as for an lies ln my
power—cut short their career by having
them put whore they cun do no more
harm, for the good of the community
and themselves uk well."
"A long sentence would seem rather
hut-d lu UiIh disc," observed the other,
"for, as 1 understand it, the old gentleman bore uu excellent reputation."
"The taint tn tho blood has simply
broken out. That is the explanation of It.
I shall expect to prove some of his ancestors were criminals, as his children
would certainly turn out. 'Whut is bred
in the bone must come out of the flesh.'
Criminals should never be let off with
light sentences, to come back to their old
huunts, take up tbeir old lives again,
and, worst of all, bring children Into the
world that will be a future curse and
meuuee to tbe pence of the community.
No, nol The sympathy of the publio
would be wasted upon this photographer,
who has, upon the evidence already secured, proven himself to be suoh a consummate rascal. Well, ClarksonF" he
said to the clerk, who hud approached
and awaited an opportunity to speak
with him.
"A young lady wishes to see yon, air,
when you are disengaged," he said.
"What lady?" asked James Van Driscoll.    "Who is she—what name?"
"She did not give any, sir. She Bays
her business la very urgent, so I showed
her Into your private ofllce."
"Is she some one soliciting for charities, or a book-agent, or anything like
that, do yon think?"
"I should say not, sir," waa the reply.
"She Is very dignified, tall, and very
The young district attorney's faoe
flashed; the bard, practical expression
died out of his eyes; an eager smile crept
quickly up to the grave mouth tho dark
mustache half concealed.
"It most be Gertrude—Miss Hamilton," he muttered. "Say that I will be
there ln one moment, he added, aloud,
turning to excuse himself to hia two
They looked after him with an amused
smile. Low aa the muttered words in the
fore part of the sentence had been uttered, Ihey had caught them.
"Our friend Van Driscoll has succumbed to the Inevitable at last, I hear,
remarked one of the gentlemen. "He
who could never be lnduoed to look at a
woman, or accompany any of his friends
home to dinner, laat there mlgbt be
daughters or sisters in the background,
li ln love.
"I thought so," remarrked Ms companion. "1 have met htm several times of
Ute dxMna thtpugh Central Park with
John Hamilton's handsome daughter,and
the rapt exp-reaetan on his Ifcee told At
own story. I Bald to myself, 'It will be a
most suitable mutch. Both buvo money,
aud they are in love with each other. In
addition to that, he has ambition tbat
any woman will be proud of In tbe years
to come; for lt will never let him rest
until he Is governor, and, Indeed, for
that matter, I Bhould not be at all sur-
plrsed to see him reach any height-—
Graver's position, for instance. He Is
brainy enough, and a great favorite with
the people.' "
"With the exception of the criminal
classes,"  laughed tho flrst speaker.
"Yes; be terrorizes them. He bus a
veritable mania for bunting them down
and bringing them to justice. The papers
—who usually speak 111 of every one—can
flnu nothing against him, nnd seem to
be unanimous tn the opinion thnt he Is
the best district attorney New York City
ever had. Quito a rub on you and I, eh?"
"The opinion of the press   be    1"
retorted his companion. "If they can not
make a machine of you—running you ns
they like-—they take It out of you In giv
Ing yuu a mean dig whenever tho opportunity occurs, especially if you are
popular with the people.  Bah I the papers
be !   1 repeat, 1 don't care a rap for
Vnil You (ret in them the sent I men ts of
one envious man, not the opinion of the
people; every politician knows that."
Meanwhile, .lames Van Drbuoll had
laid aside his straw hut, ami utter n few
moments' pattSB, which bad been actually
necessary to give   his   clerk   In-i run ions
on an important matter, he hurried toward Ids private ollley.
The door was ajar, but as he pushed
it open, and his qulok, keen glanoo fell
upon lis occupant—a stranger—a look of
disappointment crept Into his gray   eyes.
lt whs but momentary, however, In
thnt quick glance he observed whut his
clerk hud noticed—the young lady wns
deeply AgltAted, and although her face
was pale ns death, she wns exceedingly
Shn wns staudlug, probably having
arisen at his approach.
"Yuu wished to sro me?" he suld,
courteously, adding: "Be seated, please,
uml tell me what I can do for you."
"Oh, Blrl" cried the young lady, fulling on her knees at his feet, "you could
do so much for ino If you would. I—I
heard nil you said In the other room. 1
could not help hearing, and—and—I fear
my coming will be all In vain. I have
come to plead with you on my   kin-en for
one whom I love—plead with you—uy, I
pray to you to show him mercy, for his
fate rests ln your handB, they sny!'1
"Will you tell me of whom you speakl
I do not understand," said Mr. Vnn Oris
coll, gently but firmly attempting ti
raise her to her feet and set her in ai
udjacent chair.
Tears fell like ruin from the a*-ft Mm
eyes that looked into hts. She trico1 tc
speak, but no words come from tie'
ashen lips, no stood patiently with folded arms until the violent paroxysm ol
grief bad been In a measure control! ■■!.
Then he repeated his question, and thi
answer almost took his breath awny.
"I am the unhappy daughter of Andrew Carr, tho photographer, whom
you traduced so cruelly In thc outer
office a few moments ago, and whioh I
wnB obliged to hour "
Ho started and bowed. Thero was no
answer ho could mako her, and wnitid
in silence for her to proceed.
"I havo como to plead with you !<■
show   him   mercy,"   Bhe   repeated,    hei
voice breaking down into n wall lug sob,
"Oh, sir, will you promise me this?"
"I am but un Instrument of the pen
pie," returned Mr. Vnn Driscoll. "Your
father's fate docs not rest with me. Thai
Is for u judge and jury to determine from
tho evidence."
"But they sny you uro the nm- who
will try to Bend hlm to prison. Tell mo
—are Ihey rlghtf"
"It is my duly to  prosocui
of that nature,1 he responded
to utter tho words   for   which
listened so Intently.
"Then you will bo my father
est foe at the trial'*-" she said,
her breath.
"I have no other choice but to proBe*
cute tho CflSO," ho repeated. "Any one
holding the office of district attorney
would be obliged to do tho same."
"You will ask tho judge und thc jury
to believe hlm guilty, und—and—send
hlm tu prison because tho money was
found in—In—our gallery, when I declare
to you he is innocent?"
"I could deceive yon for the time being by giving you an evasive reply, but
lt Is best to deal frankly with you, und
I answer, I must do my duty, which ever
wny lt points."
"Will no tears, no prayers, no entreaties Influence you to tell the judge und
jury you believe hlin innocent, despite
the cruel fucts which seem to - conspire
against him?"
"No," he answered gently but firmly,
"neither tears nor entreaties would avail
to shake me from my sworn duty. I am
sorry to cut short our interview, but I
must leave the office for tho court-room
at nine; lt wants three minutes to that
time now."
The girl turned towurd the door; but,
with her hand on the knob, she turned
"If you send an innocent man to prison, heaven will Bend some ...-eat and
terrible curse upon you. Your every joy
will turn to Dead Sea fruit on your
lips," Bhe said in an awful voico. "Remember my words, and in the hour in
which trouble comes to you, think of my
poor hapless father and mo!"

Kidney Trouble
Nothing did Mr. R. E. Pitt
any good until he got
Doan's Kidney Pills.
Throughout the County of Leeds and
the Town of Brockville there is no medicine spoken so highly of for all kinds of
Kidney Diseases as Doan's Kidney Pills.
by Mr. James Doan, of Kingsville, Ont.,
In 1*885, they stand to-day far superior
to all the imitations and substitutes that
have been offered the public in their stead.
Mr. R. E. Pitt, the well-known contractor and builder, voices these sentiments when he says, " I have had kidney
trouble for years. I had tried numerous
remedies without much relief, and had
given up my back as gone for good, but
since using Doan's Kidney Pills tne result
has been marvellous! The pain is ail
gone. I feel like a new man, and can
highly testify lo the virtues of Doan's
Kidney Pills."
Doan's Kidney Pills are sold by alt
dealers or sent by mail on receipt of
price, 50 cents a box or,* boxes for $1.25.

From Him Eelio, PlttttevUle, Out.
Dr. Williama' Pink Pills have ut-
tuiiicil 11 most unviublo reputation in
thin community, Probably uo othor
medioiue ims hud Kuch u largo uud increasing siilc hero. Tbo reiiKon is that
thin medioine cures. Old uud young
aliko aro benefitted by its use. Recently wo printed uu account of a rc-
uiurkublo euro of a woll known lady of
this place through the agency of Dr.
Williams' Piuk Pills, and siuco publishing thut we have heard of another
similar case. Mr. Wm. Elliott, u
fanner living uear Bright, is u well
known figuro there. Although an old
man ho almost daily walks to tho village, a distance of nearly a mile, for
liis mail. Many years ago ho came
from Scotland to the farm on which he
uow lives aud cleared it of forest. Iu
conversation with him, ho related to
nn Echo reporter the following: "I
am 78 years of age and strong aud
healthy for an old mun. Miue has been
11 vigorous constitution aud up till six
years ago I hardly kuew what it was to
havo a day's illuess. But then my
health began to fail. I became subject
to cramps iu the stomach. I was treated by doctors, but received uo benefit.
I gradually grew weaker aud as I was
past tho three score aud ten I thought
my ti ne had come. Next I took fainting fits aud ofteu I would have to be
carried buck to the house entirely helpless. The doctors snid my trouble was
general weakness due to old age and
advised 1110 to carry some stimulant
with mo to uso wheu I felt a faintuess
coming on, but this I refused to do. I
had roud iu the papers of Dr. William's
Piuk Pills aud thought they would be
d-peoially adapted to my case. I tried
one box but they did not seem to help
me. Iu fact I thought I felt worse. I
decided to continue them, however, and
after taking four boxes thore was 11
marked Improvement, My strength returned and I was no louger troubled
with fainting spells. Iu six months
time with this treatment I gained iif-
teen pounds, taking in all eight boxes
of the Pills. Today I am it well man
and I owe my complete recovery lo Dr.
Williams* Piuk Pills."
Thoso pills cure not by purging the
system as do ordinary medicines, but
by enriching the blood and strengthening the nerves. They cure rheumatism, seiuticu, locomotor ataxia, paralysis, heart troubles, erysipelas nud all
forms of weakness. Ladies will dud
thom au unrivalled medioine for all
ailments peculiar to tho sex; restoring
health aud vigor, and bringing a rosy
glow to pale and sallow cheeks. Thore
is no othor medioine "just as good "
