/years ago Mr. Oliver made the state-
���"' ment that the tolls would come off the
bridge, three months after his election. As grounds for the belief of
tho Conservative candidate that Tie ! completed
could have the tolls removed, he pointed to the pledge of Premier McBride
of three years ago that when the financial condition of the province was
such as would allow it, and
other railways used the bridge, he
would be only too pleased to take
away the bridge tolls. Mr. MacKenzle said he had sulfide.,t faith ln the
promise of the Premier to stake his
veat In the house on its fu'fil'ment.
On Tuesday night a meeting was
held at Mud Bay when Mr. MacKen-
zie emphasized his pledge to free '.he
"Westminster bridge from tolls if
elected or he would resign.
Continuing his address he touched
on matters of particular Interest to
that section and spoke of the necessity of continuing the new cut off
"from New Westminster running south
and connecting wtth -'.he Eelgin road.
This would shorten the distance to
the city and it would give them much
better grades for hauling their produce.

resolution was put and  endorsed.

He   said   that   the

with the result that lower ideals of
citizenship prevail. He was sorry to
see signs of similar conditions in
"Vc stern Canada at the pre-sent stage

of the nation was being formed. It
wis highly important, Lord North-

marred by the immigration of millions of people of inferl -r races.
[Copyright. 1S09, by American Press Aseo-
A girl sat on ihe porch of a farmhouse knitting. Up the road came a
man. He stopped before tbe girl, who
sat meditating with ber eyes on ber
work. Presently she looked up. Seelnc;
him. a glad smile was about to break
out on her II[is. but she repressed it.
"Well. 1 declare!" she exclaimed.
"Where did you come from? I'd as
soon have expected to see your ghost
as you."
"I should have been xcry much disappointed," replied the man, going up
on to the porch aud taklug a seat, "to
see your ghost. I prefer to see you In
the flesh."
"Let rae see. It lUUSf be ("even or
eight years since you left You went
away the day after���after I saw you
last, didn't you?"
"Yes. 1 left you standing on this
very porch. It was twilight, with a
moon in the first quarter. I went
down the road there determined ihat
you should never see me again."
"And what brings you back now?"
"1 came to get married."
He was looking ber In the eye.
Though Inwardly she winced at tbe Information, she succeeded lu appearing
indifferent to It.
"Who is the happy woman?" she
"I've answered a question. It's my
turn to ask one. Are you married?"
He sat looking at ber inquiringly,
and she continued:
"There's never been any one here
who wanted me."
"Nor any one you wanted."
"That's right"
"Same here. I've remained single
since 1 ieft you because there was no
one I could get that 1 wished to marry."
"But now you can get tbe oue you
"No, but I must have a companion.
I feel myself getting old. I'm thirty-
"And I'm thirty."
"So I concluded to come back here
among the people I was brought up
with, marry the first girl I could get
and tnke her back to tbe most God forsaken country a woman ever lived in."
"You won't bave any trouble getting
a girl to go with you. but it's not much
of uu outlook for her."
"How about tne?"
"She'll be constantly mourning for
civilization nnd to see ber do so will
be very hard on you."
"You wouldn't marry a man who
was intendiug to take you to such a
country, would you?"
"Yes, if 1 loved him."
"And make bim miserable by mourning for these beautiful bills?"
"I'd try not."
There was silence for awbile between tbem, broken by the man.
"Seems to me that If you had got to
the state I have, tired of living alone
and didn't care whom you married, and
I could give up my Interest out there
you'd till the bill."
"If 1 married you I wouldn't let you
give up your Interest out there, wherever that is���not oo my account."
"But you said you'd do that if you
loved tbe man."
"Yes: that's what I said."
"But if you didn't love the man"���
"1 wouldn't marry blm at all."
Another silence. Tbe man sat tap-
pins bis boot with a stick be bad cut
beside the rond.
"I'm sorry about that." he said presently. "I didn't know but that if yon
felt the same as I do It wouldn't be
necessary for me to go any farther for
a companion."
"Hut I don't feel ns you do. In
your ease t lie romance has passed
away, and you merely want some one
lo keep you from being lonely. 1 will
marry no man i don't love."
He silt for awbile with a disappointed look on his face, then rose to
"Singular." he remarked, looking at
the sky. "There's the half moon up
there, and the twilight's coming on.
just the same as when 1 left you before."
"And you haven't improved a lilt
since then. In another eight or ten
years you'll come back again and talk
just ns stupidly ns you did when I
saw you last and as you are talking
"Myrn. what do you mean?"
The only reply he received was a
passionate burst of weeping.
"Myrn. sweetheart, do tell me!"
"You   went   away   nnd   have   been
gone   eight   years.     Why   didn't   you
come back Ibe next day?    1 expected
I you and bad a little preseut for you."
"But you refused me."
"That's nothing If I did. You didn't
expect tne tn fall right Into your arms
at once, did you'-"
The man looked at her. on his face

Then he took her In his arms, and
neither spoke for some moments.
"What a st lipid jackanapes 1 have

both of us."
"What a lucky thing It would hnve
been If In a feminine freak you bad
accepted me then."
"That would have been very unnatural."
"And me not understanding that

next day was ridiculous, wasn't it?"
"1 should think so."

"It is that we are to be married, aud
it is true."
���'And yet people say that alter a man

a woman from fifteen to twenty years
younger than himself."
"There are cases where men past
forty marry women they have loved
in their youth."
"And yours is such a romance';"
"It is more thau a romance���it is a

me that, whether or no I married

Father had little opportunity to become refined iu his youth, aud people
always covet what they have been denied. One day when I was out horseback riding my pouy ran away with

after me and. catching my rein, saved
me from going over a high bank Into

"An Intimacy sprang up between myself and the youth, whose name was
Aiken. 1 was a shrewd little minx
and never said anything at home about
the runaway or the farmer's boy.
"Finally I made up my mind thnt I
could not live without George Aiken
and proposed to elope with him. He
consented, but very unwillingly. He
loved me, but hnd too much sense to
consider such a course either honorable or likely to result iu our happiness. I called him timid, and this
brought him over to my plan.

One of the most appalling- accidents
in the annals of chis part of British
Columbia occurred about 6.30 Wednesday on the British Columibla
Electric Railroad at Lakeview, when
a flat car loaded with lumber crashed
into a passenger car from Vancouver
bound for Xew Westminster, instantly killing 1 I men and seriously Injuring nine' others, many of whom it
is feareel will not recover. Among the
dead and injured are several well
known residents of Xew Westminster,
while nearly all of the passengers on
the car are widely acquainted in this
city, many e.f them being employees
in  the   R   <*.   E.   R.   car shops.
According to tiie scatemenls of the
B. C. 13. It. employees who witnessed
tie iu, 11.'lit. car Xo. On;!, in charge
of Motorman McDonough, Conductor
Wiggins mid Brakeman VV. Burrows,
was engaged last night in shunting
cars on the Incerurban line. At 5:10
this morning they left Vancouver
with a tlal car londed wilh lumber
to put on the Nanaimo road switch.
A box car was standing on the switch
and in order to net the car of lumber
behind the box ear they 1 -ft the lum-
ber ear standing on lie- main line.
They set the brakes and placed a
block on the track behind the wheels
leaving Brakeman Burrows on the
car. After moving the box ear che
motor ran back to secure the car of
lumber. Conductor Wiggins super-
Intended the coupling of the car to
tin' motor, Hi.- coupler bring au'.i-
imaric, anil the brakeman releasing
llie brakes gave the signal lo the
motorman '.> go anead, lie did so
and. the car of lumber after moving
a short distance, broke loose from
the motor anel started down grade.
Tbe coupler was found to be Undamaged, leading to the conclusion
that the automatic coupler did not
work properly.
As soon as Conductor Wiggins saw
the- car start down grade he p'&ced a
Mock behind the wheels Willie the
brakeman set ihe brakes. By this
time, however, the ca.r had gained
such momentum that it ran over the
block and would not respond to the
brakes. After riding about lim yards
and seeing that che car would not
stop Brakeman Burrows jumped
from the car. The motor at once
followed the runaway car clown
grade, the motorman repeatedly
blowing his whistle to warn the approaching  passenger car.
At this polnc the grade on the
track is 2.7 per cent, and the heavily
loaded car of lumber se-mi gained
terrific speed. The passenger car
Sumas left Vancouver at 6:50 a.m..
being the first car of the clay. It was
In charge of Motorman George Thor-
burn anel Conductor William Harris.
There were 2,'i passengers on the car,
all worklngmen, who had taken the
early car In order to be at work at 7
o'clock. The majority were coming to
New Westminster, many of l,ie��n being employed in the I!. ('. ��0, R. shops,
As the ear of lumber thunelereel clown
the grade the passenger citr was approaching Lakeview station around a
preinounced curve. It was just getting elaylight and Motorman Thor-
burn evidently did not see the runaway car until It was close upon him.
Some of the Injured passengers say
Ha yelled to the passengers to save
themselves, but before anyone could
jump tho cwo cars met with a terrific
I,umber Cut Its Way Through.
The truck nf both cais remained
on the ground, but tho lumb'-r on the
flat car cut its way through the upper portion of the passenger 'cat-
carrying everything be'fore it, 'l'he,
cioverir.g of tbe passenger car was
swept away like matchwood an I the
unconscious passengers , were struck
about tin- centre of the body and instantly killed or fearfully Injured. Included in the load of lumber were
several timbers 12x12 inch square
and tliese wrought enormous damage. The unfortunate passengers
were swept off the car like pawns on
a chess, hoard and they .wore buried
beneath' heavy timbers. The shrieks
of the Injured and dying were heartrending.
A few residents of Lakeview were
astir and several, attracted by the unusual noise, were eye-wicnesses of
t.ie tragedy. Telephone messages
were hurriedly sent to Vancouver
and a special car bearing doctors,
nurses and  officials of  tho road hur
ried lo  the scene.
.Meanwhile the residents of Lake-
view and Cedar Cottage worked
heroically to remove the dead and injured from the debris and alleviate
their sufferings. Although all possible, haste was made It was fully
ball an hour before the last of the
un fortunate victims was removed
from the pile of lumber and wreckage, and before medical aid arrived.
.Many of the victims "lad lost legs ami
.inns and one man's head was cut off
as if with a knife. Ribs were broken
und the bodies badly crushed anel
bruised. Blood streamed from the
victims and stained tbe ground at
the side of the track and ran over
Hie lumber, The shrieks of the injured and dying aelded co the horror
of the scene, miking it one never to
be forgotten bv the heroic workers.
Removal of the Victims.
As soon as the special car arrived
the dead and Injured were hurriedly
placed on board and were taken t-
Vancouver. The' dead were removed
to the mortuary of Armscrong & Edwards, on Westminster avenue, and
the injured were quickly taken in
ambulances to the General Hospital.
Surgeons bound up 'trie Injuries of
those still living and they were given
every possible attention. Everything
was done to relieve their 'sufferings,
and if possible to save their lives.
Dr. Jeffs, coroner, was hastily summoned to take charge of the case and
the city atid provincial p dice were
early on the scene. At Armstrong
& Edwards' undertaking parlors sad
scenes occurred throughout the mornin'; as anxious friends and relatives
hurried to identify the crushed and
mangled dead. The last to be identified was P. Poohln, of 18*2 Third
avenue east. At 3:30 this afternoon
a coroner's jury will view the bodies
of the victims and at 8:30 p.m. on
Thursday an Inquest will be held.
New  Westminster Victims:
Included in the victims of the
wreck are five residents of New Westminster, f.uir of whom are very seriously injured, and one dead. The
news of the disaster quickly spread ti

the anxious enquiries made as to the
fate' of passengers on the ill-fated
William Johnson, who was instantly killed, lived on Third avenue, New
Westminster, and was well known in
this city. He had been employed as
