Cattell, one of the Best Men on the Hose Reel Team
Breaks a Leg while at Practj
. A most distressing accident occurred last night when tlie brigade boys
made their practice run.
The new* carl arrived from Cranbrook Monday-evening, and the boys
had intended to make a run with it,
but it was, found that the reel did
hot work smoothly, and, the first
run was made with tlw old 600
pounder. This proved a most unfor-
li.nate race. Just as the team had
finished a fine run, Cattell, who of
late has been taking the leading position, slipped * and fell in, front, Lof
the heavy cart, and'before-it could
lie stopped by Black, who was at llu
pole, ami the others, it went over
Cattell. In some way his right foot
was caught in the spokes of the
wheel and was brought iu contact with one, of tlu arms of the
reel, which was revolving rapidly in
• he opposite direction from tlie motion of.the wheel, and his leg was
broken squarely oft below the knee.
Mr. Black i.s a large, powerful
young man, and as snple as a cat,
but his great strength, with the aid
of that of the- other hoys just ii<
front of the cart, \vas not sufficient
to stop it. It was due to the (jnick-
ness of mind and action that the sharp
edged tire 01 tha big wheel did not
strike poor Cattell's head., The probable result of siich a contact makes
one shudder to contemplate.
Mr. Cattell'    took his painful   am'
distressing   mishap  with  the courage
and fortitude of a hero, and was U-n
derly eared for and taken to the hos
pital, where Dr. Bcnnell set the bom
and made "his patient as comfortable
as possible  under   the  conditions.
,   Mr, Cattell is one of the finest special ns  of  physical  compactness    am'
proportion to be seen any where, and
was   the    pride of     the l*ovs of th.
team and*"' the people of- the   town
who were takinjr such, interest   iu the

:      gentleman' i.s Yip Sang.
ll seems thai the press i.s, to some
rxtent at least, taking this most extraordinary statement seriously, or,
at any rate, pretending lo do so.
The Ledger has not the pleasure, oi

thai Mr.   Yip Sang is also an agent

This whole Colouislic transaction
has hail "so much mystery "thrown
around it that. the reading "public,
thai particular quantity which .it is
supposed "these iuw owners desire to
reach and influence., are loosing interest even as „to who do'es.'own and

' If Jlr. Yip Sang' amf It's supposed

to Leied in 10- buying the' Colonist
wilh the hope that through its' influence thc S500 head tax' and other
restrictive legislation will be ■ removed, th-. 11' whatever price they, pay. for
the property will'be too high and tlu
results   disappointing.
If all this talk about the heathen
Chir.ee entering tho journalistic field
is ■ onlv so much dust kicked up to
hide Uu real owners from sight, the
result will be just as disappointing!
to tbem, whoever they are,* as* it
would  be' lo  John  Chinaman.

That tbe oldest paper in Uu province which-, has always been considered the leading organ ot Cons'cryat-
isin should have its prestige-and ^ in
llucnce so shaken and shattered just
at the beginning of a provincial campaign is unfortunate for the "McBride

Then the fight was" on in earnest.
Time ' after time * the ball hovered

was obtained  from  another    penalty
