A Former Cranbrook Cltiien His Strenuous
Times In tbe North.
C. R. W. Pooley, formerly teller In the
Cranbrook hranrh of the Canadian hank
of Commerce, and fur the past few
mouths with the Skagway branch, bad
a narrow eaciipe recetitlly as tbe following deapatch will show:
Skagway, Sept. 17;—At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon an unknown mau walked Into the Canadian hank o( Commerce
a revolver in one hand mid a dynamite
nitro-glyceriue bomb tn the other, and
demanded 820 coo or threaten?.) lo blow
all to eternity.
Cashier Pooley and Teller Wallace
were tbe only two clerks in the bank,
Wallace ducked to get bis gun, and ran
quickly to the hack of the room, calling
to Pooley to do the same.
"No you don't," yelled the man, aud
dropped the bomb.
The two clerks had hy this time got
out ofthe window.
The bank room waa wrecked. The
unknown bad Ills head smashed and Ilia
arm torn off A hole was torn iu Ihe
right wall of the hank. Tbe front windows were blown clear across the street
and money scattered to the four wiuda.
The aide of the building bulged out, and
the furniture iu the living rooms above
■he bank waa tumbled about, the occupants being blown Into lhe air from
the conciibsiou. Windows for blocks
were broken.
A Toronto despatch says: In connection with the Aaaociated Press story of
the wrecking of lhe Skagway branch of
the Babk of Commerce by a dynamiter,
who mas blown to plecea by a bomb

message confirming the story, but differing slightly In detail, was received at
the head offices of the bank in thla cily.
The bank's mesaage says that the man
had a stick of dynamite in one hand
and a revolver in tbe other. Wheu his
demand for money was refused, he used
violent and threatlng language, and
commenced to shoot. He fired several
times, and the concussion exploded the
stick ot dynamite, which he still held in
his hand, wilb fatal results to himself.
The building was completely wrecked, but the officials mentioned fortunately escaped with nothing worse than

The Sullivan Mine Will Soon Be
in Operation With a Full
Force of Men
Last Saturday night notices that bad
been sent to Cranbrook from Marysville, by C. E- Eluiendorf, superintendent ot construction on the Sullivan
smeller, announced that the company
was desirous of employing carpenters,
brick masons and laborers to go to work
at once on the smelter buildings In that
town. Thii wh most welcome news to
the people of thla town, and will prove
exceedingly aatialactory to the entire
district. It was generally known that
many of tbe leading stockholders of the
company were in Marysville to si/.e up
the situation and decide upon whnt
action should be taken regarding the
completion of the smelter buildlnga,
Although no official statement baa been
given out, these notices were sufficient
evidence tbat there would be no further
delays in the work, and that aa aoon aa
money and men could accomplish It,
the Marysville smelter would be ready
to blow In.
The plans for completing Ibe smelter
have been adopted, and it ia tbe Intention of thoae In charge to make It a
modern one in every respect. Aa will
also be aeen la an article in thia column
arrangements have been completed for
transporting the ore from tbe Sullivan
mine to the smelter. It ia expected that
about the middle of next month, a force

was the moil favorable reports made
by tbem a year ago tbat brought about
the decision lo build a smelter, ao tbat
tbe company could treat its own ores.
Tbe result of thia plan is being watched
for all over British Columbia, and if it
provea a succeis which those who have
gone carefully into the matter have no
doubt it will mean the building of other
smelters and a great revival of lead mining throughout tbe province.

the directors, last night. "Everything
is now ready for Ibe completion of the
smelter. Tbe necesaary money has
been accounted for and the uew machinery, which will Increase tbe original
plant to some extent, will be on hand nt
tbe appointed time.
"Since the delay of last April the stock
of tbe Sullivan hai been on the decline,
hut now that the smelter ia an asaured
fact a change lo lhe contrary ia expected
by the director!. The officers and

only change being tbe appointment of
Mr. Klmoudorf, tbe new superintendent
who succeeds Mr, Auatin, who resigned
lnt April, Mr, Elmotidorf is from
Denver, Col., aud Is anld to be ■
thorough, practical and up to date man
in his line.
"The Canadiau Pacific originally signed a contract to deliver tbe Sullivan ore
to the smelter for 62 11 cents per ton,
and to Ibal end began the survey for a
railroad. Later ll waa found impossible
to buiul the road, ai the grade could nnt

Cranbrook li All Right.

in South East Koootenay, but none are
more substantial or steady than Cranbrook. Bualness Is alwayn good here,

How the District Has Progressed During
Tbat Time
New Industries, New Towns and
MaUy Miles of Railroad
Have Been Built
C. J. Ii -ksiorm, formerly a resident of
Wurduei recently returned to tbe district. Vbe following interview with
hiiu in (be Morrissey Miner gives some
idea of li..nv the dislrict has forged ahead
during tie past four years :
Cliris ivekstortnef Seattle, arrived In
town \\ -diiesdny afternoon over the
Great Northern, and wilt probably lo-
.- iu ibis town permanently. After
looking over Morrissey he exprcsaed
the opinion that the town should have
a rapid j ro-vtb, aa it was hacked by substantial resources, "In fact," said Mr.
Eekstoi.n," Soulh Ivisl Kooteuay ia today one .if the best fields for buslnesa 1
have seen tbe past two years. During
that time I have visited iu a business
way th.- northwestern states, Alaska
and other portions of llritish Columbia,
nnd I look upou this district, wltb ita
coal, timber, mineral mines and competing railways as the best of alt at thla

commercial future, and especially this
portion with its magnificent deposits of

British Columbia, who have tbe Idea at
times tbat this district baa nol progressed in a s itisfactory manner. I left tbe
district lour years ngo Ihis summer, nnd
tbe changes tbat have taken place since
then ur'.- simply wonderful. At that
lime Ili-.Tf was no Klmberley, Marysville, Cranbrook, Feruie, Morrissey,
Elko or Michel. Moyie was getting
started, and Coal Creek waa the only
lawn iu tbis part of tbe district. Sine*
Linn -..un. iita cum num.a nu.*. ,,^%.,* developed hy tbe expenditure of hundreds
of thousands of dollars, and the town of
Fernie, with the Michel and Morrissey
camps have been built up. Tbe mines
of Moyie have beeu conaolfdated and to
day It is conceded to be the largeat
silver-lead proposition known, Tbe
Sullivan and North Star niiaea have
been developed, and the smelter at
Marysville is under way. The C. P. R.
have been completed through to the
lake, the North Star branch, built
from Craubrook to Kimberley, the
Great Northern built from Jennings,
Mont, to Morrissey, and other roads being surveyed in the district. Wben one
atopa lo think of what has been done in
that brief period, and what now ia bound
to be done during tbe next four yean,
he is simply amazed at the wonderful
possibilities of this district. I don't
know of a better plnce for men with
money to invest, for I don't know where
one could find a section ol country
where good returns woold be more
aured. And this town of Morrissey
looks good to me, because I believe tbat
it Is hound lo have a rapid growth. It
is a grand opening for business men and
is hound to be a thriving town."
Tbe Old Camp la Now A Scene ot Ureal
Perry Creek is now the most active
place In East Kootenay, there being
about fifty meu working on tbe
public road that is being built up Perry
Creek, This road has been urged by
property holders up tbe creek for a long
time and ii at last being put in good
■bape. F. Leclerc has the contract and
ia rushing it through as fast as possible.
Jamei McDonell o^ Morrissey intends to
put a force of men and teams on, as he
ii anxious to have the road lu a condition to bring the steam shovel over the
road and get It on tbe ground ready to
commence the work of dredging ou their
claims this fall.
Don McKay aud Mr, Klllea spent several days at Perry Creek tbe first of tbe
week looking over tbe road.
Mr. Little, of Fort Steele, with a force
of men are doing woik at the mine
belonging to an English company.
Dan Monroe aud Mr. l.ller have sold
a group of rich quarts claims, to a
Spokane patty. Mr. Rosa uf Spokone
made tbe deal, ami is uow at the head
of a survey party, surveying the claims.
He expects to put on a force of meu to

Stranie But True.
Greenwood Times: It israther strange

Tbe more money be gets the better tbe

What We Think ol a Knocker.
Morrlssoj Miner.
A knecker Is a vile thing. . j,
He Is put up wrong. .*, . .i.
He lives to Injure other people.,
He suffers Intense agony wben any
but himself Is prosperous,
ll ls gall and wormwood to him to aee
any man get there when he Is left behind,
Ills brain cavity is small and runs to
a peak like that of a root digger Indian,
His mind is venal and hla desires are
He can't sleep at night for fear that
the morning will bring good news about
some town or individual.
Even his own town Is not exempt
from the knocker, tor be Is like the
traditional bird and the foul nest.
His eyes are wandering, because be
has not strength of chaiacter to look a
man lu the face.
He has changed the motto, "Live and
Let Live," to ''Live and Knock."
God bates him, min hates blm and
the devil won't have him.
Wben he dies he should be consigned
to eternal life with snakes, scorpions
and other unclean things, and his grave
should be marked wllh thc following
epitaph: "Here lies a man whose
death was a blessing to ail mankind,
Do You Take The Herald?
You should if you don't. It gives thc news of

to Lady Laurier Thursday afternoon.
May 1, suys Aineryllls in Toronto
Saturday Night, in Mrs. Power's

Those from whom the gifts came
were the Senators on Lho Government side. Tlio tiara was from

from the others. Doth gilts, it. is
safe to eay, are most acceptable to
Lady Laurier, mut must show her
In "what high esteem the Somite
holds the amiable wife of the Prime
Minister. There was nothing at all
formal about the manner of presentation—it was nothing more limn uu
unceremonious live o'clock tea to
which Mrs, Laurence Power bud invited Ludy Laurier and some members of the Senate. Mrs. George A.
CoX, wife of Hon. G. A. Cox, happened to be tn town tbat day, as
also did Mrs. Mackuy, wife of Hon.
Robert Mackay af Montreal, and
Mrs. Power invited those two ladies
to come with their husbands. The
honor of banding tbe tiara to Lady
Laurier wus given to Senator Mackay, und ha accompanied the action
with a few well chosen words. There
was no address read, even though
many of (bu daily papers have announced that •'Senator Walk lead

presented the purse of gold with —
you may be sure—a few well turned
words. Senator Dandurnnd is not
the*1 one to miss un opportunity of
saying something pretty, especially
to a lady. So Lady Laurier, when
she appears at smart functions dining tbe coronation festivities, will
be properly equipped with a diamond
The Speaker and Mrs. Power gave

About Jim's Book.
New Denver Ledge : A genius or a
prophet are seldom appreciated in tbelr
own country, Bret Harte la the only
genius of lettera tbat California has
ever produced, and yet bis works tbat
have done so much for tbat state, are
more valued abroad.
Jim Wardner is known all over the
west, and once wrote a book, just one.
He also found that be was appreciated
more abroad than around home, for Jim
sold 6 000 copies In Kugland and only
4,000 In America. He also discovered
that a man might be a Napolean In
booming real estate and mining camps,
and only be simple country rock when
It pomes to prospecting tbe literary
formation. Charles King, the well-
known and prolific writer of atorlea in
blue, told Jim that he sbould have had
love In bis book, and offered some day
tore-write it and, making Tough-Nut
Jack tbe central figure, be would weave
around him a web of love and romance
that would simply touch the calloused
heart of the world and cause tbe tears
to ll iw down Its face like water from a
wet tunnel. Knowing Tough-Nut 1 can
Imagine what a hero he would be In a
love role. Simply delightful. If King
sbould ever undertake to make a love
story out of Wanlncr'a book I can furnish him wltb a few characters to
round out the plot. Dick Sbea, for Instance. Wflat a bold figure! How
