There Is on exhibition at P. Ilurns &
Cn's butcher shop window In this city
probably the largest bear ever shot in
the Kootonays. It Is a silvertip and Us
weight Is variously estlma.ed at 700
pounds to S00 pound... The animal was
shot at the top of Toad mountain,
about one mile from Ihe houses belonging to .he Silver King mine. For some
weeks It has been prowling around that
neighborhood and O. F. Carlson and
Josepii Anderson have been watching
for master bruin for some time, and
their vigils were rewarded last Saturday night a little after six o'clock by a
view of the monster on the path in
front of them. In a moment the guns
were leveller! at him. anil before he go.
out of the way lour shots were disclinri;-
ed at htm. He ran away and as 1. was
da.k the huntsmen deferred further
search for him until Sunday moiiiini:.
He was round dead about eight yards
from the sjiot where the shots were
llr.-il. It was found ilint three or the
four shots had tak. n effect. It Is stated
that undressed the niillllal weighed b.-

tip to tip 10 feel 6 inches. An effort
will be made to preserve the animal for

Is the home of big game. It Is probable
that several other bears will be brought

Boston Observes Thirtieth Anniversary
ORIGIN OF SWITCHBOARD
Story of Beginnings of Use of Telephones-Evolution From Scientific
Toy to Aid of Commerce.
Iloston. Sept. 9.���Next to the anniversary of Alexander Graham Hell's invention of lhe telephone instrument, no
industrial blithduy Is more Interesting
than ihose of the first telephone line
and t.ie first switchboard, which fall
together about now-. Thirty years ago
In Apr.I a Blngle wire was s.rurig from
tbe factory In Boston where Hell's instruments were made to the mnuu.ue-
turer's reddenee in Somervllle, two or
three miles out in the suburbs. This
wns ihe tirst telephone line ever con-
s.rueted���the prima! uncestur of the
seveu and a hail million miles of wire
which now connect more than three
m.lllon subscribers' "stations" In oue
system alone. At the beginning or lh..
summer of 1S77, soon after the erection
of the firBt telephone line, several wires
radiating from a common centre were
for the tirst time Interconnected by
meuns of a crude device which, through
evolution, has become the huge, intricate, highly perfected switchboard of
loday.
Next to the telephono Itseir the
switchboard is the most marvelous aud
most necessary feature of the communicating system. Kemarkable engineering teals have been performed iu
building lines, local and long distance.
Broad rivers have been spanned or underlaid: lofty mountain sides have been
scaled; risck and sand, precipice and
tp.ugmlrc, stoi.n and flood all have presented seemingly insurmouniuble ob-
stae'es which In their turns have beeu
overcome, sometimes with most Ingenious skill. The work ot the line builders
has beeu .he most spectacular, no doub..
but it would, after all, have counted for
little were It not allied with the inventive genius lhat devised the means of
joining into one any two of the myr-
,adB of copper threads by which our
voices are carried far and  near.
The earliest attempt at interconnec
tion ou the general plan of the exchange
as we understand ll today was made in
Boston in 1S77. There wus then operated In this city a company which provided electric burglar alarm service. It
had a central station Where Uie signals
were connected by wires with the premises of Its various subscribers, who
were chlelly bankers und merchanis
Arrangements were made for the use
of these lines and the central station
as an experimental telephone exchange
Telephones were attached to five of the
ctrcul.s���throe lu bnnks, one In the of
flee of u fir... of bankers, and one In the
offlee of the manufacturer or the tnstru
nieuts���unit repeatedly the wires were
so connected In the alarm company's
headquarters that conversations were
carried on be.ween the sev nil subscrlb
ers. , j. i...
The crude apparatus used for making
these connections could hardly he cnl
led u swilehbourd. though 11 served ll.
lis small way. the same purpose as does
the l.irgesl modern exchange, Hut II
contiilnerl the germ of a great Idea. II
started experiments as the result ot
which there wus put Into operation the
following January a real telephone central offlee,   in Bridgeport, Oonn., .here
was a private telegraph system, ptlvali
telegraphy being a sorl of social fad ...
that time, .....1 among .he cult...slash
connected with it was Thomas it. i)oo
little, already the Inventor or many in
geuloiis devices and soon to be Ihe pro
ducer of more. Mr. Doolltllc at.ached
the telephone instrument to his soclel>
telegraph wires, modified the switch
botrd through which the lines had been
connected so that it could be mtiulpu
luied by an upernlor, aud attached slg
nal bells to all the circuits as u moajts
of culling   the   operator's    attention
There   were  twenty   subscribers   served
by this pioneer switchboard! nowadays
there Is hardly u block In I business
street ot any American clly that does
not contain as [many telephones AS
twenty, unit there lite plenty of com
in...rial  ulllces  ami   Industrial   plants  In
every large city which have private
switchboards of their own serving more
.ban twenty "stations" on one floor of
��� he building.
In the same month that Mr. Doollttle
put his switchboard Into operation the
fust fully equipped commercial telephone exchange ever established for
public or general service was opened
ln New Haven. It was a success from
the start, and no sooner was the success
of the New Haven undertaking apparent
than ..ilor cities began Installing central offices. The possibilities thus given the telephone increased its popularity enormously, ln spite of the doubts
and hesitation nearly eyeryone showed
in tht early days. On June 30, 1877,
there were 1130 telephones ln regular
use���230 telephones In the world thirty
years ago today, where there are now
upwards of 7,000,000. Within a month
after the number had more than trebled; within two months it had been
multiplied by six, and by the sprir.gjof
1880 there were In operation some 61,-
000 transmitting and receiving messages. Meantime the central offices
hud multiplied wonderfully, and by
March. 1881. there were In the I'nlted
States only nine of the cities of more
than 15,000 without a telephone exchange.
The early switchboards were curious
contraptions beside the modern type of
apparatus. They took several forms
before the -multiple board" now used
was worked out. At first they used
signal bells of different tones, one at the
end of each subscriber's circuit, the
distinctive tone Indicating which line
was "ringing up." Then number drops
were adopted, each line having a metallic shutter ln front of the board which
when the subscriber turned the generator crank at the side of his telephone
Instrument fell so aa to display the number of his line. And finally came the
"common battery" switchboard, now ln
use in all large cities and being adopted
In smaller exchanges, In which the operator's signal Is given by a tiny Incandescent lamp. The one place in a telephone system where a bell never rings
Is now lu the central office.
Some of the early switchboards were
big frames set along the sides of the
.���Pennine room, the connections being
made by hoys, who ran from one point
t another as the calls came In. Others
were like elongated tables, the switch
sockets being set into the Hat top and
the cords fur connecting them being
suspended from the celling. Apparatus
ot this sort was clumsy and Blow to
operate, besides being limited In the
number of lines It could provide for.
It wus abandoned in tbe United StateB
a quarter of a century ago, but it Is a
curious commentary on the lack of pro-
gressiveness in some directions of our
transatlantic cousins that it still in use
:n some of the government operated exchanges ln Europe. No doubt their
backwardness in adopting Improvements accounts for the small development of the European telephone systems as compared with the development
In this country. In the lust few years
there have been devised ao called automatic telephone systems, in which the
subscriber does the work of making
connections between his lines and the
lines of the subscriber, instead of that
work being done by an operator in the
cen.ral  office.
The rate ul which facilities for verb
al communication by wire have expand
ed and the enormous coat of this
growth are among the moat Impressive
things in American industrial history.
They are suggested In the cold figures
of the cen sus report already referred
to. when II ss.vb: "Tho total value of
tcicphonic apparatus manufactured, as
reported In the census of 1906, was $16,
863, 698 uB compared with 110,1.12.41"
for the census of 1900. These figures
do not reveal all the facts, for durlug
the period covered no greater activity
was shown In nny department of electrical appliances than In telephony. The
vnliie returned tor the 4.283 central
switchboards was $6,154,477. to which
should he added 3,917 private exchange
boards ot n value of $664. 796, making
a total of $6,719, 242. To this should
be nd.Ie.l a large proportion of the valu.
of $2,071,891, reported for telephonic
parts nnd supplies. The subscribers'
apparntus used In connection with these
exchange boards und smaller equip
nients was reported as having a value
of $8,003,736. of which $0,483,418 was
represented by complete set of trans-
n.lters nnd receivers." An.l this Is Jus:
the iipparalus nnd equipment for centra
offices nml subscribers' stations, taking
no nccounl of the expenditures upon
the outside lines, overhead, underground
and submarine.

FATAL JCCIDENT
E. Skatbo Drowned After
Fishing Trip
WAS UPSET IN RAPIDS
Citing to Upturned Boat���Companion
Saved Himself by Swimming
Ashore at Grohman.
The rapids of the lower Kootenay
river have claimed another victim. E.
Skatbo, son of T. Skatbo. or Murphy &
Skatbo, painters, was drowned yesterday afternoon under the Granite bridge
while returning from a fishing excursion.
E. Skatbo. who Is 19 years old, and
llurpur Nixon, ledger keeper of the
Royal Bank of Canada, spent the afternoon fishing from a boat above the first
rapids, off the mouth of Grohman creek.
About 3.20 in the afternoon they started
to row up stream towards the city. Off
the point Just east of Grohman creek,
the bow of their boat was caught by
the rapid water and whirled round. The
boat was overturned and both young
men were thrown Into the water. Skatbo
clung to the upturned boat. Nixon
struck out for the northern shore. As
he reached lt almost exhausted he was
helped ashore by E. Crane who reached
out a pole for him. The accident was
witnessed by a large number of people
who were on the shore near Grohman
creek.
The last seen of Skatbo by Nixon or
any of tbe others, he was being carried
swiftly down stream In mid-current towards the first falls. There was no
means of even attempting to offer aid,
and the spectators could only helplessly
watch him drift.
His father and his partner, W. J.
Murphy, went down to Slocan Junction
this morning to search for the body.
PROSPECTS   OF   FRANKLIN.
Captain Rogers Optimistic ss to Future
of North   Fork  Camps.
Grand Forks, H. C. Sept. 9.���Captain
Rogers, the veteran prospector of the
Boundary District has Just given some
very valuable Information regarding the
recent discovery of a mammoth lead of
Dlabolse In Franklin Camp. In an Inter
view today Mr. Rogers said: "I myself
first discovered this formation of Dla
blose several years ago, which is known
In Franklin camp as the "black lead.'
This starts right at the Glocucestei
mine and runs three miles west of
north. I have only seen this same formation ln two other places in my life,
which was In Australia and Cobalt. The
formation of diuhlose Is one of the very
oldest formations. This formation in
Franklin camp is from 100 to 700 lee.
wide and Ib all located. Many of Uu
claims are now working. The ore from
this formation runs from $1 to $15 lu
gold and copper. During my mining experience of over fifty years I have seen
many rumps and 1 verily believe tha:
Franklin camp will In five years' time
far exceed Phoenix camp, as the leads
are larger and richer.
Captain Rogers Is one of the pioneer
mining men of Butte, Montana, and
years ago made some big deals In ins'
camp. He Is knwon all over the west
ern country as a very conservative an i
reliable mining man.
Strikers Stand Pa\
New York, Sept. 9.���According to an
official or the commercial telegraphers'
union, President S. J. Small had a conference Saturday n'ght with Commls
sinner ot Commerce nnd Labor Nelll
What transpired at the conference wa t
not made public. At a meeting of the
union several of the members opposed
the Idea ol arbitration, Insisting that
any settlement should be made directly
between the strikers and tho telegraph
companies.

HARRIMAN WOULDN'T TALK.
Showed  Newspaper  Men  How to  Drive
but Gave no Copy.
/S>w York, Sept. 9.���E. H. Harriman,
w,. ^f/" Just completed an extensive
tour o- c'Aify *��r west, was at his country
home at a. -C/^ '-.st night when two reporters tried 'j^ 'irview him regarding the revival t* question of the
size and source of tht. -��aign fund at
the last national electa, by the Republicans v. hich has again been taken
up  by  several  newspapers here.
Mr. Harriman declined to see the men
or discuss the subject, and the reporter,
who had c. me In a buggy got into their
vehicle and started away. The roads at
Arden are dark and dangerous and one
of the men held a lantern to light the
way. They had gone but a short distance when a man came rushing from
the Harriman house.
"What are you trying to drive that
way for?" asked the man whom both
recognized as Mr. Harriman. "Don't
you know that the light In that position
blinds both the horses and the driver.
Let me Bhow ycu how to fix It. It
should be tied to the shaft In this way."
Suiting the action to the words Mr. Harriman took the lantern, crawled under
Ihe buggy and with a bit of string
fastened It securely to the shaft.
The men took advantage of the opportunity to make another try for the
Interview but Mr. Harriman told them
that he had made it an invariable rule
not to talk to reporters at his home
and that he could not do as they asked.
No  Color  Line  There.
London. Sept. 9.���Arthur Barclay, the
negro president of Liberia, is announced
to be received by King Edward at
Buckingham Palace today.
EXPLORER MAY BE SAFE
Capt. Amundsen Thinks Mikkelsen and
Crew of Duchess of Bedford Had
Time to Eeacape.
London. Sept. 9.���It is reported here
from Athabasca Landing, in the Canadian Northwest, that the steamer
Duchess of Bedford, on which the
Mikkelsen Arctic expedition was working lt way to into the polar regions, has
been lost. All the reports agree on this
but there is uncertainty as to whether
Captain Mikkelsen was with the ship
when she went down.
The news -,vas brought Into Athabasca Landing by a steamer in the service of the Hudson Bay company.
Christiana, Sept. 9.���Captain Raoul
Amundsen was Interviewed here today
In regard to the alarming news that
the steamer Duchess ot Bedford, on
which the Anglo-American Arctic exploration expedition, under Captain El-
mar Mikkelsen. was making its way into the north, had been lost. Captain
Amundsen said he believed the members of the expedition were alive. He
thinks that ln ull likelihood they had
sufficient time to save themselves and
place their stores on the Ice hefo^o Ihe
vessel Bank. If this be so they have
with them provisions to last for seventy days. Altogether Captain Amundsen takes a very hopeful view of the
situation.
Tho Anglo-American Artie expedition
Bailed from Victoria, B. C, ln May, 1906.
on board tho Duchess of Bedford to
seek a large stretch of land believed to
exist ln the Beaufort sea. It numbers
lift,..-ii persons all told, Including Ernest
Leffingwell, a Chicago geologist. The
expedition was heard from In March
this year. The letters then received
dated November 21 and 23. 1906 and hud
been carried ovrir the Ice fields to
Point Barrow where they were delivered to the Canadian Mounted Police.

HUDSON'S BAY STORES
NELSON, B. C.
The Vancouver World is out again
with a sensational story. The premier
it-, away on a holiday iishins trip.
Therefore comment should be suspended until his return, We would however point out a few of the features of
the World's story which are absurd on
their tace.
Mr. McBride is represented as opposing at last a policy he has hitherto always supported. The Dominion government is represented not only as consent ing to an act it has lrankly vetoed
seven or eight times, but even consenting to open violation of an act passed
last session by the Dominion parliament
without division. In addition to these
must improbable circumstances Mr. Me-
Blide is represented as placing himself
at the mercy of the Dominion government, and of doing it through Senator
Scott, a mau in his second childhood
and utterly without Influence in the cabinet. If the World were deliberately
trying to write an unbelievable story, it
eould   not  have   doue   better.

Regardless of opinion or feeling on

be nothing but regret among right-
thinking BrttOish Columbians that 3.000
adult males in the city of Vancouver so
far forgot their manhood and the traditions of free citizenship, as to organize

CIVIL SERVICE  REFORM.
The root of administrative corruption
ln Canada as in every other country is
the abuse of patronage, and the unfortunate connection with it of rephesenta-
Uvea of the people. Nothing else affecis
8u injuriously the independence' and the
honor of parliament, or strikes so deeply
at the roots of the civic conscience.
Quite apart from the fatal effect of the
patronage system on the efficiency of
the civil service itself, the consequences
are most disastrous to the maintenance
of an honest and honorable relation between the public und its employees.
$t is not too much io say that the
emancipation of the civil service trorn
the Immediate control of the <it tin
party In power would do more that) all
other things combined to destroy Up
baneful Influence of the machine politician, and raise the tone of the whole
public life of the Uoinlnion.
it is the general recognition of thin
fact that has won for Mr. Burden's cam
palgn the general, Immediate and enthusiastic support of the whole of tht-
independent public Opinion of Canada
No better expression of its recognition
is available than the following from the
Totonto News:
"Nothing would contribute so powerfully to the elevation of Canadian pol
itlCH as reform of the patronage Bysti m
Mr. Borden has made a Straightforward
dec'aratlon for an independent civil service, and that should greatly commend
the Opposition leader to independent
voters. If his press and his candidates
will join heartily in the movement they
will Bet a certain and significant re
spouse from  the  country.
"The people are weary of insinuations
of scandal, unsupported by direct evi
dence, and sick of paltry personal
wrangling. Any clear and thorough
exposure  of corruption   in   the  depart
ments or rascality in elections will be
understood and condemned by a great
body of the electorate. Hut the charges
must be plainly laid and well established. Mere scandal hunting Is distasteful to fair-minded people. The reputation of Parliament and the country
suffers by the nasty bickering and tat- '
tling which disfigures so much of our
political warfare. In the main. Parliament Is compost <1 of men of good repute
and honest purpose, and we should not
continue to foul t_e national character
by the debasing system of personal politics.
"in civil  service reform  we have an
issue which  goes to the roots of many
of our problems, and which cuts to the
heart  of  many of  the  plague  spots of
our   public   life.     With   an   independent
and Don*partiaan civil service jobbery in
the departments would become difficult,
public officials would cease to be the obsequious servants ut   .Ministers,  candidates would  be  relieved  trom  flept nd*
enoe on the m. ro nary element in the
const tnenciee,  Ministers would  be  under no obligation to protect officials who
could   not   iiigo  the   claims   of   partisan
service in order i<> escape  censure or
dismissal, members who dared to show
Independence   on  the   Door   ot   Parliament  could  not  be disciplined by  the
withdraw] oi patronage Ln their constituencies, and the office-seeking elemenl
would have no motive to organise for
the  control uf  party  conventions,    in
short, reform of the civil service would
make  for  the efficiency  and  dignity of
the service itself, for honest and orderly   administration   In  the   departments,
and foi Independence in Parliament aud
in the constituencii s.
"This is the  issue to  which  Mr. Ilor-
den   is   squarely   committed,   in   which
the Conservative party may find Inspiration for a strong appeal to the country, and which as has been said, goes
to the roots of the grosser evils of our
politcs.     The   attitude   of  the  Govern-
in. nt   has   still   to  he  determined.     As
leader of the Oppositon in the  Legislature,  Mr.   Graham  declared  for  the  reform   which   constitutes   tho   main   feature oT Mr. llorden's programme.    Can
hv overcome the inertia of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and impose the policy upon his
colleagues ?    it   is seldom  that this reform  is hospitably  entertained  by   poll*
licli.ns In office.    Generally It. has been
forced  upon    Governments    by  public
opinion outside.    In making this opinion

"Mr. Sims was instructed to read this
letter when the grand jury reconvened
September 3, and take further action
to the forthgoing, and as might seem
to the court and hlmsHf, appropriate
In the premises. The department learns
that Mr. Sims did not comply with these
Instructions by reason of his having
called to his attention recently certain
new, and. In his Judgement material
fads whin be thought should he submitted to the department for Its further
consideration before its conclusions
should be finally announced. For this
purpose, he asked, and was granted by
the court, a delay of three weeks. The
department Is not as yet advised as to
what are the facts thus ascertained by
Mr. Sims. It has great confidence in
his sound judgment and devotion to
duty, and It awaits his report before
taking any further action in the premises. Inasmuch, however, as the circumstances of the case may be liable
to misconstruction, it is deemed proper
to submit now the present statement
to the public."
MEDICINE HAT'S PROGRESS.
Experimental Farm May Be Located by
C. P. R. Land Department.
Calgary, Sept. 9��� Medicine Hat
wants an ex perl mental farm. For two
or three years the Ottawa authorities
have ben urged to do something in the
matter, and the Provincial government
has also been approached.
Not long ago Mr. Campbell gave a
lecture at the Hat upon his scientific
system of farming. The locals were delighted. They wanted to try it. They
thought lt waa the very thing suited to
that  part of  the  country.
The Agricultural society of Medicine
Hat, to bring matters to a head, commissioned W. C. Harris, the president,
and T. M. Harrington to come up to
Calgary and interview J. S. Dennis, of
the C. P. R. Colonization Company.
They arrived last night. They had
not been here many minutes before
they were seated in the office of Mr.
Dennis himself.
When they were seen afterwards
their faces were wreathed la smiles.
Mr. Dennis had decided to recommend
the company to give the project substantial assistance. This was what
made them so happy.
Medicine Hat may shake hands with
Itself. There is every prospect that it
will have an experimental farm in the
near future.
GANS  AND   BRITT.
Will  Fight  for  Lightweight  Championship at San Francisco Today.
San Francisco, Cal., Sept, 9.���In
prime condition and ready for their battle, with the lightweight championship
at stake, Joe Cans and James Kdward
Uritt, await the call to the open-air ring
at Recreation Park this afternoon. The
sale of sects has been large, but the
betting on the result has not been
heavy. With a remembrance of the previous meeting between Gans and Britt,
which was later acknowledged by the
parties concerned to have been a fixed
tight, the sporting fraternity evinces no
great desire to risk money on the present event. In what betting that is done
Gans rules a slight favorite.
The fight will be held tn the open-air
hall pink, and lt Is estimated that between 16,000 and 20,000 spectators will
probably see the contest. Though the
attendance at the ringside will probably
lax the capacity of the big amphitheater
the gross receipts will not come up to
the total of some of the previous events
pulled of here for Uie reason that the
prices have not been put so high. The
price of tickets ranges from |10 for
ringside tickets down to $1 for general
admission of a bird's-eye view of the
contest.
