Homiciclo at Wardner���Death of a
Golden Boy.
Intelligence has reached I Iolden that
I-'dward liawll', formerly in the employment oi the (iolden Lumber Company
has been killed in a brawl at ono of the
ruilwny camps near AVardner. Tiie particulars so far ns can be ascertained arc
that l.a'.vlf, who owns a team of horses,
has been engaged in the construction
work of tho Crow's Xest Puss railway.
At the time of his death ho was located
at Kgan k Co.'s camp Xo. 2 near Ward
nor. One of the night herders oi ibis
camp was a person named Philips, whose
fathop is .Michael Philips, rancher and
stipendiary .magistrate at Tobacco Plains,
On Saturday night last liawlf borrowed
Iho horse belonging to Phillips for a rido
and on his return an altercation arose
betweon them. AVhethcr owing to a
dispute as to tho hire or whether owing
to lhe horse having been borrowed without the owner's consent is not known.
In tho heat of the altercation Phillips,
who carried a revolver, drew it and
struck liawlf on tlie forehead. The blow
wu? fatal. Philips is now in custody
pending the inquiry to lie held by the
coroner. Grout sympathy is felt for the
father of Philips, who is much esteemed
and respected in tlie district.

J'KIDAY, JUNE 10, 1898,
A   NOT   UNLIKELY   EVENT.
Believers in the Millennium uro sooth
���sayers, predicting tlmt prior to its ml vent
there would bo it great und bloody war���
tlm greatest uud bloodiest tho world has
ever seen���and that tlie Millennium will
lie attained before tlie arrival of the
twentieth century. Some of tlie Booth-
���suyera predicted that the close of the
Crimean war would speedily be followed
l>y tlie Millennium; hut only more war.*'
followed, some of them bloodier and
more far-reaching in thoir consequences.
Thc nineteenth century Is now near its
close, and Millennium sooth-sayers are
hnsy with their prophecies, The bloodiest war ever raged is now on the eve of
commencement. The present warfare
between America and Spain is the Interlude. There will ho interference by the
European Continental Powers between
Spain und America, either before the
eluHo of hostilities or whon terms of
peace arc being arranged. This interference will be resented, as America will
be foolish if she foregoes any of her spoils
of victory. Then an attempt will be
made to wrest these from her; but she
will have the support and backing-up of
Great Britain. Italy, out of her love for
Great Britain and recollecting the struggles she had to secure her own freedom
from odious tyranny, and probably
France from her Republican sympathies
and her hatred to the Teuton will be
found arrayed oit the side of the great
Anglo-Saxon Confederation���the greatest confederation the world has ever
produced.
Certainly there is a great flutter just
now in nil the diplomatic dovecotes in
Europe, and protocols are being exchanged. Britain is making great preparations for eventualities, acting on the
maxim that tlie best way to secure peace
is to bo ready for war. Her preparations
are on a gigantic scale: enormous additions to her already powerful tleet; the;
accumulation and storage of warlike
stores and munitions. Her financiers
are moving slowly aud realizing outside
securities, ns they do not know where or
when complications may commence or
end.
Blood-letting used to be the remedy
for a fevered person; it is still the only
remedy for fevered nations, ns nations
are still a long way from the universal
dawn of pence* When the carnage is
over, then this univorsul dawn of peace,
and cast in their lot. It is no case for
trifling or trying to break the force of
facts, Too lurid a Hght has been let In
on them. Atonement must be made for
the great Wrongs that have been done.

Toronto Mull und Empire: " Thero if
more brain power in lhe Britisli Columbia government, small us Unit administration in as to numbers, than in the
Ottawa government with nil its boasted
btisinoss qualities. Mr. Clifford Sifton
ruminated for months on the Yukon
railway question, mid ull bis colleagues
runiinatei.il witli him. The result of the
mental effort was a deal which if not designedly a fraud was rank foolishness
It gave awny everything for comparatively nothing, and was so exorbitant in
its terms as to stagger the country. The
Liberals iu tiie Commons did not like it.
Borne voted against it; others voted for
it, but prayed that the Senate would kill
it. It was approved only by the bad
element. After the demise of this deal
the British Columbia government took
the matter up, and is getting the same
railway, extended, however, to a Britii
Colllmbiu port, for a moderate grant,
with no monopoly. When these Ottawa
Ministers enter upon a transaction they
are suspiciously liberal with the public
money or the public territory,"
If there is a difference between the
two governments in tliis respect no sane
person can distinguish it.
Tho Origin of Yankee.
A curious feature of thc present Ills-
puuo-Amerirun hostilities pointed out
by a reader is that the Spaniards refuse
to dub the Americans by any other term
than " Yankees," and tlieir country
" Yunkeelandia." Not even every
American is aware that " Yankee " wus
derived by tho Bed Indians from "Anglais." "Ongkavs" was the original
form of the word ns employed by the
aborigines to denote the white colonists
of Massachusetts. This etymological
fact certainly deserves more attention
than it usually receives, particularly in
view of Anglo-Saxon unity.*���Exchange.

Thc Melbourne Argus describes tho
unusual spectacle of u funeral coming to
a standstill in front of a public house.
It occurred in Hwanston street, Melbourne, People who stood about in tlie
immediate vicinity wondered whether
or not the landlord was dead, or whether
the bourse driver was thirsty or tho
chief mourners were concerned about
tho dream of the poet, the philosopher | tho heat, and desired to   slake   their
thirst before proceeding further on tlieir
and safe, will arise and tlio prophecy of
the soothsayer will soon become near
accomplishment in the fulfillment of the
Tennyson idea:
" Whon lie war drums slinll ilirnii uu more
Ami tlio buttle Hags nre furl id
In Um I'ni'iiiiiii.'iii ui until ���tlio Federation ni
llio world."
THE  C.  N.  P. R  EXPOSURES AND
THE GLOBE'S ATTITUDE.
The Toronto (llobe has written several
articles on the Commission and the
exposures nf the foul wrongs done to
human beings who had thc misfortune
to be employed iu the construction of
this railway under its now notorious
contractor. The Globe, iu its last and
recent article published this week, very
justly culls on the C'nnadian Pacific to
recognize the wrong it has done, to
repair tlie wrong as far as it can, und to
see that nn such discredit is ever cast on
the country again, This is tlie only
straightforward course that will satisfy
the country and restore confidence iu
^liose who are asked to come to Canada
mournful journey. All speculations
were, fortunately, wrong, 'lhe cortege
had como to a standstill merely that tiie
chief mourners might rend the crickol
scores posted on the publican's window,
Soa Power 1b Supronie.
AVillinin E, Curtis, the Washington
liar for tlmt really excellent journal, the
Chicago Record, has been listening to
the talk of a European diplomat.
This diplomat, points out that Russia,
Germany and France, the three great
military powers, could combine to dis-
tate terms to the United States. True
enough. But with tlreat Britain for its
friend, the United States could work its
will in Cuba or in lhe Plillllpines, and
the three great military powers could
never tiring a regiment close to the scene
of American triumph.
The diplomat becomes humorous when
through Mr. Curtis, he tells how easv it
would bo for France to land a million
soldiers in England. He says that '��� Napoleon's plans for the. invasion of tlie
United Kingdom nre still vory precious
inheritance to the French military
authorities." A " precious inheritance''
indeed. Hut Napoleon the great had
not brains enough to work ouf these
plans. The Bcruli generals who control
the armies of France to-day are not
iikelv to succeed where the great Emperor failed.���Toronto EvcuingTelegrum.

W. C. Wells' Address to
ths Electors of this
District.
accept as a murk of confidence aud
trust. sulHoient to determine me in
guarding faithfully the position in which
you shall have placed tue an your Representative, [n my appreciation of this
trust, und an earnest endeavour to serve
your interests, 1 sincerely hope that it
will not be expocted that I am to defeat,
or risk the opportunity given me, by
such a thankless allegiance to party
measures as might thwart what I consider my imperative duty towards developing the material resources of the
North Riding of* Fast Kootenay.
���Anticipating  and   thanking  you  for
your support,
i 1 am ut your service,
I W. C. WELLS.
TO THK KLKCTORS ()F THK NORTH
HIDING   OF   KAST KOOTENAY:
My nomination as an opposition Candidate in tho approaching (ionorul Flection for our Legislature, calls on me to
state to you briefly, the course, which En
mv opinion,! should take if elected as
your Representative.
So far as 1 have been able to measure
the feeling of this Constituency, it Es
pne nf disappointment in the administration of our Provincial affairs. In tho
present contest I. am glad to say, we ure
not so divided on party litiet-, as to debar
us from taking our choice of men
throughout the Province for the ensuing
parliamentary term,and itisto be hoped
that an independent effort will be made
iu this direction. Holding tho opinion,
nsl do, that the record of the present
Government, in the disposal of public
lauds, and their administration of the
Provincial finances, not having been
such as to command my support, it is
my plain duty, for the present, to claim
your suffrages na an Opposition Candidate. Thfs docs not necessarily mean
that 1 must plnco myself in such until
gonism t.i any administration, as to
defeat what should be my primary object
us u Roprosontative, namely, tho interest of my own Constituency.
Nor does it mean tlutt I am In full
alliance witli the Opposition party as it
him stood before the Legislature during
the past four years. For this reason, ii
no other, 1 would ask at the hands of my
constituents, if elected, a free indulgence
of my own judgment as to the course I
should adopt in this particular respect.
7 look for ut least u reconstruction aft the
result of the goneral election, and that
we muy have an administration fully
meeting the demands of onr rising
Provinco.
The large appropriation of $5,000,000
under the recent Public Works Loan
Amendment Act, while indicating u
generous tendency in the disposal of
public funds, cannot meet the approval
of interior constituencies. We aro interested in something more than building up our terminal cities, und the
exclusive welfare of districts immediately
tributary to them. It will therefore, bo
my first contention that substantial
justice should bo given to the eastern
portion of this Province, as compensation for the enormous appropriation
made directly, I consider, in the interest
of ('oust constituencies, for which wo too
huvc tn bear our Bharoof the burthen.
In this connection, I may say Unit the
terms -subsidizing the Teslin Luke Bail-
way have my approval as a legitimate
business transaction, apart from other
considerations, and which are: First,
whether there is an urgent necessity to
build, at present, the southern portion
of thia line; and Secondly, whether we
have not been ton precipitate in snatching from tho Dominion Govern mont, a
responsibility which rightly belongs to it,
in tho interest of eastern provinces, moto
than to Uritish Columbia. We have,
within ouraolves, sufficiently attractive
features in our vast mineral resources, to
fully warrant the investment of capital
and the Influx of population, or in oilier
words, we have our own affairs, to which
it might he better, ut present, that we
give our undivided consideration. 1
menu by thia that, being so wholly dependent us we are upon the opening up
und energetic development of our mines,
the further construction of roads, nml
increased facilities of interior transportation, becomes un Imperative necessity.
To this I will urge the consideration of
the Government, and trust that in justice tn this, tho extreme eastern constituency of tho Province, further appropriation will be now made, and that we
muy have, ut least, what fairly bolongs
to us.
Mv election nt your hands, 1 would
LOCAL AND GENERAL

Luke, has been up the Columbia Valloy
us fur ns the Canal Flats busily prosecuting a canvass and returned from there
on Thursday forenoon, when Mr. Wells
Inmicdiuloly left for lMnul.l in prosecution of his canvass.
Mr. II. J. Stai'tortta ol Golden has received the melancholy intelligence from
tho old country of the death ol his father
who wus one of the best known architects in Edinburgh and celebrated for
bis designs iu Gothic architecture. Jinny
public buildings in Scotland being designed by him in tliis.graceful form of

.Mr. A. L. Hamilton, tho land commissioner of the C. P. 11., passed through

bound���It is understood for Midway, in
order to superintend the laying out of
town files on the new line of ruilwny to
be constructed by tbe 0. P. in southern
liritish Columbia from .Nelson to Pen-
tieton.
The town of Wardner is moving rapidly ahead. A recent ii-viie of tlio Provincial Gazette contains the announcement
that it has lieen mado the centre of a
school district. Tbe district extends for
a radius of three miles in and around
Wardner. Wardner,since its inception,
possessed n school for the instruction of
its young, but now it, has boon created
into a school centre.
At a mooting of the football club on
Tuesday evening, Mr. \V. O. Jlilchell-
Innes, president, in the chair, it was

It was further resolved that on the
regular practice nights ��� Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays, players must

slated he would do all in his power to

ground.
An extra issue of the Britisli Columbia
Gazette was  published on tiio 7th inst..
containing proclamations dissolving the
present Legislative Assembly und culling
u new Legislative Assembly nnd con-l
lainiiig the writs for  the elections of |
members in the different constituencies.
All the writs are dated 7th Juno and are I
returnable on or before 3!st August with
tlie exception of CilBsiar district, the date
of which has not yet been fixed,
Gold Commissioner Griffiths Is presently In the Windermero Mining Division ou government business. Tho
trails ill that division will be inspected
and put in thorough order and other
trails will be opened up to promising
properties. There will boa big milling
camp yet, at windermere as there are
some very valuable properties in that
neighbourhood especially up Toby Creek
where a considerable amount of development work will bo done this season.
The ('. P. R. bus abandoned in the
meantime the proposal for the accelerated service between Vancouver and
Montreal in 100 hours. The reason for
this is that the road on the prairie is
not. yet in such sufficiently good condition as to warrant quick travel at u much
greater into of speed than is now obtained. Tbe entire distance is now traversed in 11!) hours. The change would
be nf great benefit to such towns as
Kamloops nnd Calgary where the trains
whicli now arrive iu the night time
would have arrived at reasonable hours. |
It is only however a matter of timo when
the road bed of the railway is improved
that the service will lie considerably
accelerated.
