Garrisons, X. V., Oct. 25. — From the
sleep that means refreshment and rest to
the eternal sleep that knows no awakening, pluuged in the twinkling of an eye
this morning 28 souls, men, women and
children, lu the slimy bed of the Hudson river a (rain laden with slumbering
humanity plowed, drawing Ul lough the
waters lhe passengers. There was nothing to presage the terrible accident which
so suddenly deprived these unfortunates
of life.
Thc New York Central train left Buffalo Saturday night and had progressed
for nearly nine-tenths of the distance toward its destination. The engineer and
his fireman had just noted the gray dawn
breaking from tho east and the light
streak of red denoting the sun's appearance when the great engine plunged into
tlie depths of the river. Neither engineer
nor fireman will ever tell the story of that
terrible moment. With cither hand upon
the throttle the engineer plunged with
his engine to the river bottom. The fireman, too, was at his post. Behind (hem
came thc express car, thc combination
car and the sleepers, and these piled on
to of the engine.
It is known that it was a trifle foggy
and that the track was not visible, but if
there was any break in the lines of steel
it must have been of a very recent happening, for only nu hour before there had
pased over it a heavy passenger train, laden with human freight. Neither is au explanation ready. All is conjecture.
it wiii n hi a   Willi  Onve   Way.
The section of road was supposed to be
the very best on the entire division. There
was a great heavy retaining wall all
along tho bank, and while the tide was
high yesterday it was not unprecedented.
I What seems to have happened was that
underneath the track and ties the heavy
wall had given away, for when the great
weight of the engine struck the unsupported tracks, it went crashing through
tho rest of the wall nnd toppled over into
the river.
Then there happened what on a railroad
at any other time would have caused disaster, but what, now proved a blessing. As
the train pluuged over the embankment
the coupling inn that, held thc last three
of thc six sleepers broke and they miraculously remained on the broken track. In
that way some 00 lives were saved. Of
eye-witnesses there were none except the
crew of n tugboat passing with a tow.
They saw the train with its lights as it
came Hashing about, the curves, and then
saw the greater part of it go into the
river. Some of the cars, with closed windows, floated, and the tug, whistling for
help, started to the rescue. A porter
jumped from one of the ears that remained on the track and run into the yard of
Augustus Carr's house, near which the
accident occurred, and stood screaming
for help and moaning, "The train is in the
river.   All our passengers are drowned."'
In a fow minutes Carr dressed himself
and getting a boat rowed with the porter
to the scene. As they turned a point in
the bank they came upon the express cm*
and the combination car floating about 20
feet from the shore, but sinking every
minute. One man was taken from the
top of the car and efforts made lo save
those inside. A few were gotten out. the
passengers left upon the track, making a
human bridge to the shore to take the
wounded on.
Other Curs  Sulk.
The day coach and smoker had gone
down iu the deep water nnd rescue was
impossible. Jn the latter coach the condition must have been horrible. The car
turned completely over nnd the passenger
end of it was deep in the water, while the
baggage end stood up toward the surface. The men in thnt lower end must
have fought like fiends for a brief period,
for the bodies, when taken out, were a
mass of wounds. The closing scene of the
first day of this tragedy is drawn around
a common car near thc scene of thc accident, where nearly a score of badly mutilated bodies, none of them yet claimed by
friends, arc lying ii; a row, gruesome evidences of the disaster, the greatest that
has ever occurred on this railroad.

profits of a factory with a capacity of SOU
tons of beets per day. The locution uf the
Scotch company in Ihis section is dependent now on the outcome of a test ease beforo the courts to determine the rights of

The total capital required would be
about $420,0110. not including the cost of

2(1 acres. The capital required to operate
the factory would be about $60,000.
Sugar, us one of the staple articles, is sold
for cash or on short time, and as everyday (i.'l.o tons, or 127,000 pounds of sugar
would be ready for market, tlie company,
at the end of each month, would have sufficient money collected to pay all expenses
und leave a good surplus.
The cost of all the factory buildings,
sugar storehouse, beet sheds, oflice and
laboratory, lime kilns, foundation for engines and pumps, etc., including nil mechanics' work, would be $125,000. The
cost of boilers, engines, pumps, machinery

Thc announcement in tho Miner yesterday that Costello's sentence had been
reduced to a die caused the most intense indignation all over town. Nearly
every nun who was seen was greatly incensed at the actigi of Justice Walkem,
and the opinion was freely expressed
that thc matter should be brought to the
minister of justice,
Mr. Cronyn was seen by a Miner reporter as to lhe change in the Costello
sentence, He had only just heard of it,
havir.g been delayed in Ymtr, returning
yesterday afternoon. He expressed him-
stif as utterly at a loys to explain this
extraordinary change and was amazed

aue for the crown had becn fuily proven
by the prosecution, and then on the return
of the verdict of common as.ault sentencing thc prisoner to the longest term

him to pay a paltiy bagatelle cf S100,
only a fraction of the expense to which
the gov rnmsnt has been putto in prosecuting this case. Mr. Cionyn says lhat
already the effect is shown, that he has

Miner,]—Sir:   I wish to draw  ihe attention of the public thruugh tho co'.l
umns of your valuable paper to the fact
lhat the alleged mineral claim known as   A
the Thursd )',  which  was  sold   by  the
iheiilf of tl is county a few days ago on
ah execution against Henry P. Toionto,
is nut aligal location being on lhe ground
covered by my piopcrty  kiio;n as the;
Sailor Jijy.
For the inlormaijon of thc public Ij
wish to itate here that Mr, Toionto on:
the -jithof July 1895 recorded this Thuis- j
dayciaim without ever having striked ]
lhe groun :' until somo two mouths aficr
it wa; recorded. Jn thc meantime, on
August first in the some year, I located
this property under tbe name tf the
Sailor Boy, it being at tbat time vacant
ground not having byen stalked out.
I have worked this property eff and
on since I located it and have* donu over
$400 worth oi work on it, having a 30-
foot shaft, shaft house, &c. I may further
mention that my statement with regard
to having recorded lire Thursday befoie
it was staked, can be corroborated by two
disinterested witnesses who arc ready to
testify in this tnatrcr.
My cbj.ct in publishing this notice is
that innocent purchasers, «i;o are not
aware how this matter stood, might be
ptevented from purchasing litigation by
auruiriug a sheriffs title to the Thursday.

James E. Walker, secretary and treasurer of the Pathfinder Mining, Reduction and Investment company, while in
Spokane recently was interviewed by a
Spokesman-Review reporter and among
other things said:
"The North Fork of the Kottle river is
a great miring country and it is overlooked to a large extent while districts
lens worthy are more often mentioned.
It h.s been hampered by lack of shipping facilities, btit I believe that difficulty will soon be removed. The route
of the Columbia & Western through that
part of the country is permanently and
uefinately located. I know lhat to be
true, having obtained the information
from the most reliable sources, The
road leaves Robson *and goes up Dog
Creek to the summit, then down McRea
,creek to the foot of Christina lake, then
up Kettle river to Grand Forks, and up
the North Fork to Brown creek. The
survey then runs over the Brown creek
pass to Midway, and thence west to Victoria. There are now no less than fifty
surveying outfits working between
Robson and Victoria. Tbe impression
also prevails up their tliat D. C. Corbin
intends to get into the lioundary creek
country with a read with ail possible
haste, It is said .that the ferry boat that
hcr, becn used a Northport, and is no
longer needed since the neiv biidge has
been opened, will be brought down to
Marcus aud that the new line will be
run from that point through the Lone
Ranch pass. The recent visit of Mr.
Corbin, and his chi:f engineer, E. J.
Roberts, to tbe Boundary creek country
has started the railroad rumors flying
"There are plenty of mining locations
along the Forth Fork, in fact in some
places they crowd one another, especially on the west side. Some of them arc
well developed and making a good showing, among thcrn being the R-Bell, Emma and B, C. in Summit camp; the Seattle, Butte and Drurolummon in Seattle
camp, and the Humming Bird, which is
largely owned by Portland parties. Development woik is showing up on the
latter property in line shape. The O.
K. and Jennie May arc both making a
good showing. A big shaft is down on'
thc latter and active work is goin-j on.
"Across the North Fork from the
mouth oi I'ass creek is one of the most
wonderful mountains of mineral in all
British Columbia—thc Pathfinder. There
are many claims located on it, the principal one being lhe Pathfinder, whieh is
best developed of them all. It
is in charge of T. I. Parkinson as superintendent, a gentleman who is especially hospitable to ihe visitor who happens
to come that way. He and W. A. Plci-
icr located the property and afterwad
organized a company at Grand Forks,
which has been pushing the development of the Tathfinder steadily. The
company has had a great advantage in
that they have had no dead work to do,
all the work being in ore which has constantly increased in value as depth has
been gained. They have one shaft down
fifty-five feet, from which they are now
crosscutting the ledge. The new ore
chuto at this point is filteen feet wide.
Tho new shall b 300 feet east, and here
there is a body of clear ore thirty-three
feet in width the companys claims aver-
ages $50 per to. I know that the remarkable widening of the 0 e body with/
in a distance of 300 feet sounds like a
big story, but I measured it myseli and
can vouch for its correctness. The ore
is a quartz matrix, carrying copper and
gold, There is a whim on the deeper
shaft and shaft houses over both, so that
woik will go on all winter. They are
working two shifts. A road has been
built to the mine, and a boarding house,
blacksmith shop and barns have been
built this summer. The company contemplates putting in a hoist and compressor in the spring. The showing of
ore on this property is one of the finest
I ever looked at ar tl will far exceed the
early showing made by some of the now
famous Rossland n ir.es.
"Among thc other interesting properties on Pathfinder mountain are the
Mammoth and Standard.owned by Evan
Evans. These will be crown granted
this full. Machinery is being put on the
Christina, which is owned by M. C. Repass, and which will also be crown
granted. Ralston brothers own the Diamond Hitch which, next to the Pathfinder, is the best developed property on
the hill, John A Finch is interested in
the Little Winnie, Dewitt and Gold
Nugget, all fine looking claims. Others
are the Ontario Boy, Tiger, Grange
Grove and Milda, The formation on the
Mountain is diorite and porphyry, and
viens are all direct contact. Whether a
railroad comes in there or not, lhat district is bound to be heard irom in a most
emphatic manner a* no distant day."
capital for tbe porpose of developing
this property. As a result of his labors,
Mr. Mcintosh has associated with himself Messrs, Beccher and Honey, bankers of Fargo, North Dakota, in the organizing ot a company to develop the
Winnipeg. The name of this company
is the Winnipeg Mining and Smelting
company, limited, and has been incor-
ported under the Companies' Act iSc)7
with a capital of 41,000,000 divided into
shares of one dollar each.
Mr. Mcintosh, who will have clnrge
of the work, informsus that all necessary
machinery, Including a steam boiler,
hoist and pump, fer the successful working of lhe propcity had boen purchased
and was now on the road between here
and Marcuy, and as soon as it could be

One Naval  Commander Who" Was Not
to Be Corrupted.
Sixty or seventy years ago1 the mer-
cluinfs of Chile exported a large quantity of silver in ingots. As there was
a heavy export duty on baa* silver, they
used to smuggle It off to British men-
of-wnr for conveyance to the River
Plata. As they paid handsomely for
Ihis service, tlie amount Riven lindlug
its place in Hie pocket of the ship's captain, as extra earnings, many commanders did not hesitate to leave Hie
station nnd use their ships to earn
freight money.
One day bis Majesty's ship the Stag
entered the harbor of Valparaiso. Her
commander, Captain Sullivan, and also
wing commodore to the Pacific squadron, issued an order that no muu-of-
war was to take smuggled silver, because it encouraged Chileans to break
lhe laws of their country, and assisted
them to do so.
Not long after Hie order had been
given, Sullivan's squadron was anchored off the coast. A canoe came off to
lhe commodore's ship after dusk, and
i black man placed on the deck a number of silver lull's.
"What is Ihis for?" asked Sullivan,
Df the merchant who had followed the
"For you to take to the riatu," he re-
"Has duly beeu paid on it?"
"Then I can't take it."
The merchant explained Hint he wns
rloiug as he bad done; he bad not beard
,f the new regulation; it would lie
more difficult to get Hie bars on whore,
Without detection, than It lind been to
smuggle (hem off; and he begged that
in exception might lie made in his case.
"Well," Bald the commodore, at
length, "take it lo the vessel astern of
in,-; but mind, no more silver is to lie
brought off tbat bas not had the duty
pnid on it."'
Tlie moral sense that begot Sullivan's
Jl'der, and which he himself obeyed
luring Hie five years lie commanded
.ni Ibe const, was characteristic of the
man. Clear perceptions of duly and a
high sense of honor were his guiding
principles. At the time lie Issued lhe
nrder he had no melius of supporting
ids family of fourteen but bis pay; extra earnings would have been accept'
lble. and the example of distinguished
nfflcers would have justified him In
using liis ship as a freighter. They
moved him not.
When ihe merchants, against whom
Commodore Sullvnu's order had been
Issued, heard Hint In a few weeks be
would leave for home, they showed
'.heir appreciation of his integrity.
They passed Ibe word along the coast
owns lhat all lhe silver possible should
he sent lo the River l'lnla by his ship
nn her way to Flight lid thai he might
have one chance of a good freight. Of
course, on thut silver was paid the ex-
nort duty.

Among the stories told of early California days is one which gives a remarkable   picture of   n blacksmith's

In the days before roads had been
laid out and sawmills built, a black
smith settled on one of the river bars,
ind erecting a forge of clay and Stones
j set the anvil on a big tree-stump, which
ne had sawed low for thai purpose, nud
:lid a thriving business sharpening
the picks and drills of the miners,
He was himself a miner, and did his
blacksmithing almost entirely at night.
I Not knowing when his claim might fall

j worth his while lo   build   it    regular

|   One day two of the miners left the

away. As they came Into the main trail
leading to the blacksmith's haunt, they
met a mini leading a horse whicli had

"SI ra tigers," said the man in a weary
;tone. "can you tell tne how far it is to

I lost a shoe, nnd lie's mighty lame."
