Manager Keane of the Ca iboo
Shot  Keane   From   His    Horse and
Avenged the Killing of Alar*.
tin Roderick.
Word comes Irom Nolon, Wash., that
a report has just reached there to the
effect that Manager Keane of the Cariboo at Camp McKinney, who shot and
instantly lulled Mai tin Roderick last
wlntei on lhe suspicion that he was the
m.in who relieved Goo 15. McAuley of
the Cariboo gold brick--, was shot from
his horse, some time' Thursday by an
ambushed assassin on the road between
Camp McKinney and Rock Cieek and
not far from thc scene of ihe celebrated
Keane left the Cariboo mine Thursday morning intending to jide to Midway on business and Thursday afternoon a party of prospectors found his
dead+>ody lying in the road.
He had been killed by a heavy bullet
which struck him in the leit side of the
abdomen and ranging upwards came
out under tbe right armpit. All the surroundings would seem to indicate that he
was murdered by someone who lay in
ambush at a turn in the road and fired
before he had an opportunity to defend
No trace of the murderer has becn
found and no clue to his identity can be
obtained, but it is supposed tbe murder
was comtni ted in revenge of the killing
cf Martin Roderick, by Keane, last winter and some slight suspicion is advanced that tbe murderer was lhe biother of
Roderick, who, It is said, had vowed to
be revenged Ior his brother's death.
Or.lyveiy meagre particulars of the
muider could be obtained but it is said
the person who brought the news to
Nelson was onecf the party which found
the b'.dy so there seems to be no reason
tor doubdng the lepott.'
''Honest John" Trots a Half Mile Against
a Man on a Wheel.
A couple of week ago 11. T. Huntley
expressed thc ouinion that bis trotting
horse, "Honest Charley," could make a
half mile quicker than any bicycle rider
in town, and offered to back his judgment by a wager of $10. After seveal
trials of speed bad becn made by the
bicyclist it was decided to match Arthur
Milthrop against the horse, and last
Saturday afternoon was set as the date
of the race.
The novjty of the affair attracted
quite a large crowd to the race track to
witness the contest. The conditions
of the race was that it was to be a half-
mile-straight, standing start, and in
order to avoid any conflict the wheel
was started a ion feet behind the horse.
Jack Donaldsou gave Milthrop the starting push and while the horse trotted
well, it was apparent fiom the start that
he was over matched. Before the quarter pole was reached Milthrop passed
"Honest John," and finished about
loo feet ahead of him, covering the distance in oue minute and ten seconds,
which, considering tbe rough condition
of the course was an excellent recoid.
The judges were Ur. Ilepworth, Al-
Tranweizer at.d Billy McKay. Notwithstanding the (act tbat Milthrop was the
the favorite from the start and odds of
two to one was offered on him considerable money changed hands on the result,
There is some talk of another race being arranged between the same parties
at an early date.

Attempted Holdup of Mr. A.
J. Privitt.
When Called Upon to Throw Up  liiJ
Hands He Put a Bullet through
His Assallent.
The little town of Nelson, just over
the line on the reservation, was thrown
into quite a state of excitement last
Saturday evening by the report, that A.
J. Privitt, president of the company
which owns the Big Four cliim*. on Lo
Fleur mountain, while on his way ta tli:
mine from Nelson whero lo had boen
to purchase supplies, hed been held up
by a masked highwayman some four
miles fiom Nelson. Tho attempted
robbety took place between four and five
o'clock in the afternoon right on tkej
trail leading up to the   Big  Four  mine.
The circumstances connected with the
affair are best told by Mr. Privitt himself, and as that a gentleman was a visitor in the city last Wednesday we gi\*e
our readers a full account of the affair
as related to a Miner representative
by himself:
"I had been in Nelson buying supplies
for tbe mine and was on my way back,
riding along without any thought of danger, when, just after crossing Kursmoos
creek, I reached a point where a large
stamp leans out over tbe trail at a sharp
turn. I caught sight of a man's leg
partly bidden behind tbis stump and at
once made up my mind that he iv»j
there for no goad purpose.
"I.istantly I ..topped my horse and
reached for my revolver. The man saw
my motion and sprang from behind the
tree and called upon me to throw up my
hands, at the same lime leveling his gun
which fortunately missed fire. We then
both fired at once, my budet clipping
the tree beside his head while his tore a
hole through the brim of my hat.
"The fellGW then turned and ran and
I fired a second shot, lie fed tohis
hands and knees and as my horse was
rearing and plunging so 1 could not control him 1 did not see him get up but
when I once more caught fight of the
p'ace where he bad fallen the man was
gone, Feating that he might have
friends in ambush I butritd on to the
mine to bring b.'.e'. . party and search
for the robber. After I had gone or,
pel baps 300 yards I beard another shot
down in the brush in the direction in
which the highwayman bad gone and
came to the exclusion that I must have
wounded him badly and he had shot
himself. Returning with the men from
the mine we made a thorough search but
could find no trace of the fellow.
"I was unable to recognize my assai!-
lant as be was masked wilh a faded red
handkerchief, and anyway I vas tl.filling about other things than what the
man looked like. He was rather above
medium height, slightly built, light complected and wore a soft black hat. It
must have been some one well acquainted with th: country as he picked out
the best place in the whole trail to wait
forme. I believe he intended to murder me and relieve me ef some money
which I had in town with me."
Mr. Privitt is an old-timer in this nc-
tlon and has large interests, both heie
and in the Pierres' Lake district.

Sensational    Stories    Concerning    Mayor
Manly's Prolonged Absence,
livery town has it fuli q lotaoi gossip- I
en and Grands Forks is no exception to j
the rule, tn f.ict we believe  tint if she'
was to enter a contest held between the
various towns of tbe provin :e,fora jold
medal, she would wag off wilh tbo tiitt
prize.   At present the family  affairs  of j
Mayor    Manly   have been   furnishing
plenty of food for ihe scandal mongers
to feast upon, and the number of wid
stones that are in circulation are is so
great lhat they would fill a volume of a
sei sational magazine.
* X-
S':.*cc Mayor Manly took his departure
from theeity nearly two months ago
the report has been current that he would j
not return to the city to reside, At lirst
there wis no attention pud to the rumor
supposing it to b : the production of toe
idle brain of some imaginative person
with nothing bcttcrto do tb into *_utsu :h
stories in circul it-ion.
As time a'ter time set for his retur-,
came and passed without his putting in
an appearance, the report of his nonreturn began to h ive some sembl mce
of truth, and the developments of the
past week have been of such a nature,
even his staunches friends and admirei .
in the city are in doub: as to his future
intentions, Waile the Miner is of the
opinion that there i.. 1.0 doubt but
Mayor Maily will return as soon as he
can get bis business affairs in Rossland,
which have gotten into a very tingled
condition owing to this partners mis*
111 magement,straightenedoutii believes
that Mr. Manly Bin u!d either leturn to

will put a stop to the scandalous rumors
that aro afloat whioh are doing him irreparable injury, as well as untold damage
to ihe welfare oi the eity.

Telegraphic Connection With Klondyke.
The Toronto World is agitating tbe
building, by the Canadian government
of a telegraph line into tbe Klondyke,
and in commenting upon the proposition says:
"The building cf a telegragh line
through Canadian te*ritory into the
K'ondyke would be desirable from a
national point of view as well as prove
a profitable investment commsrclally,
The cost will run up to a quarter of a
million rioliars. Trie receipts fiom a
telegraph line into the Kiondyko would
be phenomenal. Two or three years,
operation of the line ought to pay for its
entire construction. Postal communication with Alaska will be annoyingly
slow for years to Come, A telegraph
line would attract all the business communications between the Klondyke and
the outer world. The Government
stands to make a heap of money if it
will rush through this proposed tele,
graph line. The existence of the line
will do mnre to ensure good government
in the country than the expenditure of
three times its cost In soidiets and ammunition. By all means let the Canadian Government take this work in
hand and put us into communication
with the Klondyke before the great
rush of next spring gets in."

Another Forward Step Taken by the  British Columbia Iron Works Co., Ld.
of this City.

The mining resources of this province
are being rapidiy developed. New

increased demand certain to oris-: for
new and improved mining machinery,
and lor tbat purpose have added a mining department to their already extensive plant, and placed the san-e under
ihe in nagement of Mr. J 0. Nrbom,
an experienced mechanical engineer,
who for many years has becn engaged
in the m inufuoture of all classes ol min-
irg machinery in San Francisco. Mr.
Norbom is a thoroughly educated, theo
roticaly and practical engineer, and has
for the last 12 years devoted Ins special
attention ro the requirements of the
mines, lie has traveled through all the
mining districts of the United States
of America, and also those of the
republic ol Mexica. This year he has
given bis attention to this province and
ihe bright outlook for the future in the
mining regions throughout the co.is', as
v. ed as those in Kootenay and other interior districts, has covinccd him of thc
fact that there is no country looking
more promising at thc present day. Mr.
Norbom has b.en consulting mechanical engineer for several years for some
ol ho largest mining companies in California and will continue the same business here. He bas designed and manufactured water whetls of a highly effective type. He is also well up in steam
engineering and power plants generally,
having designed tbe 7,coo horse power
t'iple expansion engine for tbe San
Francisco & San Mateo Electrical railway in San Francisco. On his two trips
to British Columbia las* spring Mr. Norbom placed mining machinery and rnado

Will Spencer linked himself .'rcse
questions over ami over, wearying uf
the repetition, and yet never able to
end it by saying heartily thai he was
glad anil triumphant, or bitterly that
he was sorry and ashamed. The plain
fact stared him ever in tbe fuee, that
Helen Raymond did not love him, and
that Mrs. Raymond had urged his suit.
nnd exeried her maternal Influence and
eloquence until Helen had consented to
be his wife, telling him very frankly
that her heart was in the grave ol' her
lover, (leorge Vanhorn, who had been
killed in a railway collision nearly one
year before.
'•Mother was never willing I should
marry George," Helen said, sadly, "be-
i ause he was poor, and we have suffered
all that poverty can inflict, lie was on
Ms way to Colorado, where his brother
hns been sueeessful, when he was
Will Kpencer winced, for he was rich,
mt.v rich, but then he put to the wound
that southing salve, "I will win her love
when she is my wife," that has wrecked
bo many lives. It may eome, this love
that will not be hidden, to a man and
wife, after they are bound together for
life, but the risk is great, and Will
Spencer knew it.
Vet he cherished the delusion that
love in the end would win a return,
and he knew his own love to be strong
and enduring. He had stepped back
v. J.en George Vanhorn war, met with
Sif.'i a smile, for he could never win,
J.ud kept from pressing his suit when
thc name of Helen's lover appeared on
the list of the killed in tbe account of
i he railway collision, but after the lapse
of several months he had won Mrs.
il**.} mond to bis side, and so, by proxy,
wooed Helen and won—what? a cold,
reluctant consent to be bis wife.
Vet she was .not, cold, thi.*; girl of SO,
whose heart had been crushed ever
since the day when George Vanhorn's
i.imie was recorded as dead. He could
have told how hcr eyes could Eoften
v. ith love's tenderness, hcr cheeks burn
with love's blushes, her low, sweet.
voice tremble with love's whispered
words. L'e had won what all the Spencer gold, the riches of long generations,
Could not buy.
Before that fatal railway collision she
was a bright, beautiful girl, with large,
expressive brown eyes, a voice of
music, the step of a fairy, singing as
a bird sings, from sheer joyouaness of
heart, bringing a jest to all lhe household worries, laughing merrily over her
own blunders in thc culinary department, turning old dresses, renovating
old bonnets without a complaint, living
on love and hope.
After that day she moved about slowly, hcr eyes were dull and weary, her
duties met with a rigid mechanical precision, her lips compressed, her cheeks
pale, a shadow of her joyous self.
Mrs. Raymond was often afraid that
she. would yet miss the golden prize she
had partly won, and heartily seconded
Will in his preparations for- a speedy
wedding. It was Mrs. Raymond who
went with him to open the house that
he had bought, to adorn for his bride,
who aided him in the selection of oar-
pets, curtains, furniture, and gave him
instructions regarding the kitchen department, of whose needs he was ns ignorant as most young bachelors. It
was Mrs. Raymond who received an
anonymous letter containing a liberal
sum, which she rjuietly appropriated
for a trousseau and a suitable dress foi1
the bride's mother.
She was a woman of rare tact. Having won Helen's consent to be Will
.Spencer's wife, she never bothered hcr
}>y complaints about her listless indifference to her lover or her future prospects. She simply made all the arrangements for her, without once admitting a possibility of change. The
betrothal was spoken of on all occasions, the preparation of the house, the
selection of the trousseau referred to, in
matter-of-fact words that made Helen
feel, as it was intended she should, that
she had walked into a net from which
there was no escape.
And Will Speneer knew it all, and
writhed under the knowledge, being,,
frank, loyal man, whose impulses wero
generous and honorable, and who loved
Helen wilh all the strength of his heart,
lift en he asked himself how he could endure life, if he found his wife a faithful
clave, instead of the happy companion
he hoped to make hcr.
"If she never loves me!" he thought,
bitterly. "If all my love fails to win
hers, what will my life be?"
He did hcr justice. He knew that if
his love failed to win her heart, his gold
was powerless to make hor happy. He
knew that if her mother died or could
ucl bo benefited by her marriage, she
would lather beg her bread herself
than be his wife.
While mutters stood in this unsatisfactory state, Mrs. Raymond made a
suggestion: "1 want you to go away
for a mouth," she said to him, "aud lei
Helen miss the constant devotion that
she has had ever since your betrothal.
Let her feel that a void has come into

would be if she. lost you. The wedding

bul he followed easily..
"Lei me go, Spencer!" the crippled

"Steady now!" and he lei! him, fecliii]
how lie trembled, until he had bin
sealed in a great arm-chair in hi:; rccr.i.
and felt his heart stirred with dee]
compassion at the havoc pain and poverty had made.
lie would not let his guest speak until he had ordered a supper and made
him comfortable. Then, i liming to
him, he saw that ho was •i.e. j ing,
"See what a woman you make oi me!"
the poor fellow said. "Vou thought 1
was dead?"
"Ves!   All your friends think so."
"It was a narrow escape, ami 1 won-
wonderwhy I was spared. Nine months
in a public hospital have left mo crippled and incurably ill. They would nol

"Ves—yes! What would her life he

"Hut you may recover."
"No! I should be only a wreck if I
could, but I cannot. 1 have internal
injuries that the cold and hunger of
last winter have increased, filially."
Will Spencer literally could nol speak,
Tbis man asked of him only ihe silence that would give him Ids wife,
Could he let Helen remain in ignorance
of this strange adventure thc memory
of her old love might die away in time.
When he cou),l speak again he led lhe
conversation tn Helen. He wc *. very
frank, telling George Vanhoi n how t ru-
ly he had been mourned, but saying
nothing of his own hop.s, and it was
easy to see how George had loved her
how utterly self-sacriilcing his silenci
had been. To spare her pain, he had
kept from her all knowledge of his own
Hut his pride yielded to Will's eu! rent
ies to be allowed to befriend him. He
was very weak, very ill, and he allowed
Will to get him a pleasant room ia a
quiet boarding house, to furnish hiin
with necessary clothing, to engage a
doctor, nnd to take a brother's place
beside him.
And then true, unselfish love triumphed.
"She will never marry me," Will
thought, ruefully, as he folded a long',
long letter, "but she shall not be
cheated out of what little happiness life
may still hold for her."
lie wrote, too, to Mrs. Raymond, a letter that caused that respectable lady to
grind her teeth, hut whicli she obeyed,
packing hcr trunk and accompanying
Helen in the journey westward.
It was Will Spencer who mol the two
nt the depot, and aooompanled them tn
the hoarding* house, where he kept Mrs
Raymond in the parlor after ser.oin**
Helen upstairs, alone. II was Will
Spencer who smoothed away every difficulty, engaging rooms for mother and
daughter, and quietly effacing hiraaeir.
It were far too long a story to try lo
record the three months thai followed.
(leorge Vanhorn was resolute on oue
point. He would not marry Helen, tie
had no hope of recovery, but if thc unexpected should happen he would not
rish ruining Helen's life by binding it
to his.
"Oh," she would ery, "what am 1 to
deserve the love of two such men?
Mother, it humbles me to think how
they love me!"
And by this love her courage was sustained through the three months, when
she and her mother smoothed George
Vanliorn's path to lhe grave. Such happiness ns could be hers, she knew that
she owed to Wili Spencer, who showed
his love only by his care of tho invalid.
He never spoke of love to her. giving
her up entln ly, bul upon hcr lover he
lavished every kindness wealth could
procure, or friendship dictate. He gave
him n brother's devotion until thc las!
parting came, and when he war; laid in
the cemetery Will Spencer took Helen
and Mrs. Raymond back to their home
and left Ihem.
ft was three years later when he came
home from a Kuropean tour and called
on Mrs. Raymond.
"The old lady, sir, is dead." I'm* servant told him, "an' Miss Helen's h\ in' in
|  street.   Maybe yees didn't   hear
' ulic's come into some mi ne*   from h"r
uncle, si;, and M
this house, sir."
Come into some money! Well, she did
not need him. lie would wait awhile.
But in a few days a little note reached
"If was unkind to let me hear of your
return by accident. Will you not come
to see me?"
Would he not? And when he went he
could not keep the love out of his eyes
or hia voice, and she—at last! Her eyes
drooped under his gaze, her cheeks
Mushed for him, her voice faltered, with
tenderness. He had wonhisbride! Am!
he had no seen* i bidden from her loving
eyes, no treachery he would dread to
have hcr discover. By the frankness he
had though! would alienate hcr forever
he had won her true, faithful hoe, a devotion as entire as that she had givi n in
her girlhood to the man he had so nobly
befriended.—N. V. Ledger.

It. idusi nut h<* supposed that the
famine whicli is now devastating India,
horrible as it is, is unique in the world's
history. Tlie annals of history give authentic record of not less than 350 famines, dating from Scriptural times down
to the present, says Frank Leslie's
Weekly. Famine ami pestilence havo
always gone hand in hand, the one
causing the other, and vermin and fllUi
have always been among the chief
causes, S;> recently as 1855 there came
a plague of locusts in Utah and only the
appearance of seagulls, never before
seen so far inland, prevented thc totaj
destruction of tlte crops and consequent famine.
Besides insects and vermin there may
be other causes of famine, some natural,
some artificial. Among these axeraim,
frost, drought and other meteorological
phenomena, war, defective agriculture,
defective transportation, legislative interference, currency restrictions, r peculation and misapplication of grain.
lu connection with this last-named
cause it may be snid that, although India, has becn cursed with frririiiy more
than any other country, linking had ill

it always produces food enoughforallof
its inhabitant.*, ami even ia yea is of famine ther.* arc regionsof plenty sufficient
to feed the .-lar.lag if only the grain
could be brought to them, li isnaturaJ,
therefore, to suppose that the causes of
Indian famines are quite as much artificial as natural and that legislative
foresight could do much to prevent

knocked down to a native junk dealer
for $25 the other day, and is now being

the good p-op'to of Roda asked a cool
$100,000 for the little pile of brick, wood,
iron, mortar and dust that, was to be
taken down and rcerected in this city.
Hut the price was considered loo stiff,
and tho negotiations fell through. In
order that the hdiise might nol fall
down, the municipal fathers of the little town ordered its immediate demolition, says the -New Vork Sun.
