TH>!   INCORPORATION OF GRAND
PORKS NEARLY SETTLED.
What (Mir Citizens  Think  of   Into,
potation.    Very Little Opposition is Shown.
40r P. H. rlcCARTER,
Spokane, Washington.
- (Irand Porks, B. C
The bill incorporating the townsite of
(irand Forks into a municipality was introduced in the legislative assembly last
Friday by -Mr. Graham, the member
from Yale, paused the lirst reading, and
was made a government measure,
The bi! also calls for an election to be
held, to determine whether the mucioi
pality will be governed by an executive
of three commissioners or hy a mayo:
and three aldermen.
Tho bills incorporating, the towns ol
Rossland and Nelson were also introduced at the Bnmc session and passed
their tirst reading. After the reading
of these aid several other proposed new
measures the assembly adjounu-d until
Monday last when it was expected thai
the bills incorporating the towns of Nt-I
son, Rossland and Grand ForkB would
be taken tip and passed,
A great ileal of interest has been taken
in tho lown regarding the proposed  incorporation and considerable discussion
has been indulged in as to the ultima!
results,
In orrler to learn tho feeling of otti
citizens on the subject a MlNEB report
er called upon a those of our propertj
holders whom he could find, and pro
pound'-d to them tho query: "What di
you think of incorporation?" Tho ful
lowing is the result:
John A. Manly—After careful investi
nation I am suro it is tho proper thin;,
to do. Without incorporation wo can
not make the improvements necessary to
keep apace with the growth of tho town-
Having about fiOO acres of land witltii
Ihe prescribed limits cf tho muiieipality.
incorporation will affect mo moro thai
any ono person in tho way of taxation,
and I would ceitjinly not favor it uh
less satisfied that it was a benefit. Ac
cording to tho terms of incorporation
the municipal officers are not to recciv-
any salary for two years, and I am oi
tho opinion that by careful managemen
tha revenues derived from licenses ami
other sources will pay the expenses ol
running tho municipality and leave a
largo balance for the necessary improve
tner.te. Of course I am not in favor o:
rushing in and borrowing a largt
amount of money for improvements,
believing it unwise ns it would necessarily increase the taxes.
O. 11. Folger—Up until this week I
was against it, but after investigating il
thoroughly I am satisfied that with
economical officials it will be tho herd
thing we can do. All of the revenues
derived from licenses and other source!
which now goes to the government, wili
be placed into tho tho treasury of tie
municipality and can be utilized at once
for improvements,
P. T, McCallum-*I don't know. W<
can never make a town without it.
Dr.Hepworth—It can not do any harm
Wo need more money for improvements
than the government furnishes. If wi
wero incorporated and the revenues-
taken in by the town could be expended
in improving tho place it would be B
great thing for us.
W. H. Fisher—I have uot fully  mad
up my mind as yet.   Of   course  it  will
bo a line thing provided we get the rigid
kind of men for officials.
J, G.Wright and O. O. Luther—Wi
are strongly in favor of incorporation,
W. K. O. Manly- I signed tho petition
in favor of it and believe it will be good
Ihing. The government has been tali
ing money out of the town right along
and spending it in other parts of the
country. If wo incorporate we can
keep it at home and spend it ln im-
provemerts,
Dr, G, W. Averill - It will be a good
thing in various ways. In the lirst place
it will be an excellent advertisment. In
tho second place we will get the bt Hi lil
of all the money derived from licensee
and taxes within tho municipality tor
local improvements. This money now
goes to tho government and experience
tenches us that very little of il ever gets
back this way. The additional cost in
tho way of taxes will in no way compare
with the benefits to bo derived from incorporation. Yes. you can say I am decidedly in favor of it.
L, A. Manly—I think it is a good
thing By it the money that now goes
fo tho government from licenses and
taxes will go into the municipal treasury
fund and will bo aval-able for needed
local improvements.
J. D. Scare, Sr—I don't know. The
facts are that I am not well enough acquainted with the details of municipality
to express an opinion.
Geo. Minis—I can't say, not having
given the inattor sufficient study to ex
press an opinion, but can not e;;o what
harm could come frotn it.
Jell' Davis- It is a good thing.
II. A. Huntley I like tho idea and am
in with it every time.
Louis Soheifle—] don't like tho idea.
It baa been my experience in small
towns which incorporated that the taxes
were made so hi^h as to drive intending
investors away.
II. A. Sheads    It ,s a step forward.
Andy ((irkland It may be a good
thing and it may not,
Ira Gill -Some v/ays it will bo a good
thing at tl |n others not, 1 do not like
the idea of property owners in one part
of town biting taxed to pay for improye
ments in another part. Otluywiso I
think the scheme is alright.
11. A. Henderson Incorporation is
alright.
W, 10. Stacho- I think it will be a
good thing.
F. II. Knight—It will be a good thing.
I believe the licenses and other revenues
will pay the expenses of running the
town without increasing the taxes.
Mr. Ward It will undoubtedly be a
good thing.
A. G, Sutton I have not taken much
interest in this matter. The bill may
puss, but I am of the opinion tho town
iB too small as yet for incorporation.
From the above it"will be Been that
the oppo?ltion to tho measure is su
small thut it can hardly be considered
as such.
Let l.veryone be There.
There will be a mass meeting in the
School house, this evening ut 7:110, for
the purpose of discussing incorporation,
ft iB earnestly requested that overybody
turn mil. regardless of which Hide of
the question they favor.

Postal Statistics.
The reporl of the PostoHlco department,
shortly in he Issued, will show thut tho postal
service of Canada costs the .country 1000.1187,
'which Is the difference between the net receipts
and the expenditure. The income wasjl.ooi,
014, and the outlay 13,805,001. The chief items
of expense an. tor mail contracts, which by
far the greatest part are the railway contracts,
whicli represent Jl,285,333, ami are paid in accordance with a rlxed rate. For the conveyance of malls by land and other than by railways the outlav was $347,080, and by water.
$79,218. The sale of postage stamps u-as$l,785,-
min, for disposing of which the vendors received ?17,620. Front the sale of money orders
there was realized 9100,513 by way of commission, in addition to this $1,300 was issued in
money orders which had not been presented
within the year of issue. This is so much clear
prollt t.i the country. It may he ad-led that the
business of the postoflloe departmenl Is expanding rapidly. Ten years ago the receipts were
(1,001,0110, while hist year they were ?:!,004,000,fill
increase of a million dollars in a doaade; while

of the service, hut has been diminished. It was

It   Wiim   Their   See-ond   Selvca
Committed  tin- Crime.
Dr. It. Osgood Mason, the medical scientist, whose Investigations in psychical
pin nomena have attracted .vide attention,
is about to /nuke public a series of exceedingly im ■resting facts bearing un a
most Import j nt discovery regarding an
actual dual personality.
It Is that a large proportion of the civilized world pons esses alternating personalities.
The strangost feature of the condition
referred to Is that the existence within us
of tho second self is not realized, and yet
It i.s the Impelling force which provokes
the commission of actions totally lorelgn
to the known nature of the Individual, It
shows that th-- novelist's creation of "Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is not In the least
Improbable. In fact, it is demonstrated
beyond question that there are many persons in this wot Id who are the conglomerate of two Individuals of exactly opposite characteristics.
Even further than this, the facts which
Dr. Mason presents go to prove the truth
of the famous Biblical quotation: "The
sins of the fathers shall be visited upon
the children unto the third and fourth
generation of them that hate mo." This
Is shown by what somo persona are
pleased to Improperly call heredity. Technically, heredity refers to certain personal
peculiarities noticeable in eaon generation
of a family. Tito Biblical assertion, however, Is proved by the fact that frequently
the dual personality ot an individual Is
composed of tlie nature which his father
and mother have directly transmitted to
him, and a second nature or self which is
a direct reproduction of the evil that lay
In nn ancestor three, four or perhaps live
generations before.
It is a matter of common knowledge
that in almost every family there has
been at one time or another a marriage
whicli has given cause for regret, otten
from the fact that the person who has
married Into th- family proved to be of a
nature not at all desirable. It may be the
children which result from such a Marriage will be devoid of the maternal characteristics, and the same statement may
prove Hue of die generation that succeeds
them. Ho it runs along until perhaps Hit
fourth generation following, und then the
child of parents whose natures are all
that could be desired, in whom the splt't
of evil liiids no lodgment, de.-elops a
character such as might have been bestowed upon him by the fiend incarnate.
Then the world marvels and wonders why
this I.s so, but cannot dispute its truth.
Dun] Natures.
Now, then, this is when the nature of
the Individual In whom Satan has all
interest is plainly visible. Dr. Mason's
Investigations und deductions relate to
those who posses these dual natures, and
yet as a rule have sufficient moral eour-
ago to repress, so far as appearances are
concerned, the Mr. Hyde Individuality.
However, sometimes Mr. Hyde will not
down, and then are committed those
strange actions which the world and even
the persons who commit them, lind it impossible to reconcile with the character
of the individual as understood. There
are few persons who have not felt mysterious impulses to stray from the path
of rectitude in a violent and startling
manner. It is these impulses which have
led some medical men to assert that all
humanity is moro or less Insane. Dr.
Mason proves that there Is nothing of the
sort, but that these Impulses are simply
the influence of the second, or evil, self.
The second self Is not necessarily evil,
but It Is an unpleasant fact that generally this is the case. All these things
will be set forth in a statement Dr. Mason
Is soon to issue to the public, containing
the result of his investigations regarding tho dual personality. Ho has given
the members of the American Medical
association something to think of in a
paper read by him before the section on
neurology of that organization, treating
principally of the origin and the medicolegal aspect of the dual personality, lie
says:
"It Is jt well understood fact that certain clearly defined traits or characteristics, either physical or mental, existing
in ancestors near or remote, may, after
passing by one or more generations, at
length crop out distinctly and unmistakably in a later one. Physical peculiarities
or deformities, tendency to certain diseases or peculiar mental characteristics
are frequently in this manner transposed,

The   Contradlctl-ii-,.
"Suppose, for Instance, that live genera
tions back there had appeared a man of
marked and thoroughly bad characteristics  married   to   a   right-minded,   moral,
even religious, woman, that he was a vill-
ller of religion, profane and vicious ln lite
and   unscrupulous   in   ids  dealings  with
others, that the generations which Immediately  succeeded  came under Influences
which, aided by inherited characteristics
from the mother, led to lives of morality,
uprightness,   or  oven   conspicuous   piety.
In  tlte fifth  generation appeared  a man
who, in the midst of these moral and religious environments, was conspicuous for
his profanity, his vicious life and unscru
pulous conduct, so identical with his remote ancestor as to make the connection
undoubted.   Where did this evil tendency
exist during the four intervening generations?   Let us tap the main line between
the two extreme points and see what information may be extracted. In the fourth
generation   was   a   mild,   religiously   inclined woman of delicate health and perhaps   unstable   personality.    From   snme
sudden  shock,   syncope  or  loss   of  consciousness occurs, and on recovery an entirely   new   and   different   personality   Is
found to have taken the place of tho original one.   It professes to be a man and to
the horror and consternation of the good
people surrounding her the patient commences   to   curse,    to   vilify   everything
good, and to unhold sentiments and prac
tices of the most offensive and criminal
character. This newly arrived personality has a chain of memories and individual history quite foreign and unknown to
the primary self, but consistent with
those of the remote ancestor whom we
have considered. In a hour or a day tho
primary consciousness has returned, but
there is not the slightest recollection of
the character which she has represented
in her second personality, and very likely
the case Is diagnosed as temporary Insanity; in ti more primitive ago It would
have been called possession by an evil
spirit. It was in reality the strongly impressed characteristics of a distinct personality, which bad lain dormant ln the
sub-conscious self for three generations
now coming to the surface temporarily
under favoring circumstances in the
fourth, lu another generation It actually
appeared, an atavism, as the primary and
usual personality. In like manner a personality of conspicuous goodness or talent
might pass over many generations of mediocrity or of evil-doers, and appear, a
pleasant atavism, after one or many generations had intervened. Less extreme
personalities might be formed ln like
manner, and more than one might be Impressed upon individuals lu successive
generations, giving rise to the perplexing
and much debated condition of multiplex
personalities. Krafl-Eblng, as we have
seen, found ln his patient 'three psychic.1
existences,' or personalities. Professor
Janet's patient, Mine. It., possessed three
widely different ones, while one of my
own cases presented three, and another
two, alternating spontaneously at longer
or shorter intervals, not including the
cases ln Whl3h changes of personality
were brought about by hypnotism.
Doctrine of lioNpomiil,Hit>.
"With this view of the origin nnd nature of ordinary, as well as alternating
personalities, it is not difficult to determine the medico-legal aspect from which
these cases should be viewed. It is evident, first, that the primary self must not
be held responsible for action, either good
or bad, committed by the second or any
succeeding personality, since it is absolutely ignorant of the doings or even of
the existence of these personalities. It
would undoubtedly be just to restrain the
Individual from violence or wrong doing
during the presence of the personality
committing the wrong, but no longer,
and It would be abhorrent to all our ideas
of justice to take the life of or even to
punish severely the Individual whoso
Identity we have been accustomed to associate with the ordinary self, on- account of wrong doing committed by any
succeeding personality while the ordinary
self was wholly unconscious."
In a certain degree Mr. Mason's assertions coincide with the claims of the the-
osophists regarding reincarnation. While
the Individual in real life is not the exact
prototype, it is held, of a remote ancestor, the characteristics of that ancestor
exist In the form of this second half of
the dual personality, The theosophist
claims that the strange impulses foreign
to the nature of a person are merely reawakened memories. This Is also held to
be true of the occasional realization, when
visiting a strange place, that some time,
and under other conditions, It has been
seen before. This is practically what Dr.
Mason's investigations and deductions
signify, only ho shows that It Is not a
reincarnation, but the transmission of certain qualities and Ideas that have lain
dormant for a century or more to a person whose predominating self Is far apart
from them. It will readily be seen that
there is sufficient room lor argument in

Letter  From  Him.
Orion Clemens of Keokuk, Iowa, a
brother of Murk Twain, has received a
letter from the noted humorist, who is
temporarily Bojurnlng at London, England, written in a most cheerful and encouraging style. Tlte letter, while largely
of a personal nature and which Mr. Clemens refuses to make public, does not even
hint at anything like the desperate straits
and deep financial embarrassment mentioned in recent cablegrams from tho
English capital. On the contrary, Mark
Twain wrote hopefully of the future and
of bis family affairs. The brother here
says that Mark has been very much depressed and exceedingly low spirited since
the death of a favorite daughter and his
moroseness arising from grief, he thinks,
has probably given rise to the stories sent
out about his personal and financial condition.

Jinn-**-   J.  ITeely,   I.nwyer   ln   Munhii-
ehUNt-tlN, I.a uuhs In  His Sleeve
al Electric Companies.
The first successful attempt to put to
practical use an electric plant, run by a
windmill, has just been accomplished by
J. J. Fcely, a well-known lawyer of Wal-
pole, Mass., with a perchant for mechanics.
With wind as the fundamental factor
this lawyer-mechanic-inventor operates
a private light plant, forces water all over
his estate, operates farm machinery, cuts
wood, turns lathes and fills storage batteries for use ln horseless carriages.
It was no easy task which Mr. Feely
set himself out to accomplish when he
undertook to develop this "windmill electric plant" for his own UBe on his ample
private estate.
From an electrician's point of view the
greatest obstacle and one which It was
claimed could not bo overcome, was the
variability of the wind and the consequent
erratic fluctuations of the electric pressures which rendered their utilization impossible by subjecting the ordinary mechanical connections to excessive and fatal strains.
Early ln his experiments Mr. Feely
found that one of the lirst problems to
be solved was to determine accurately
the wind velocities and efficiencies during the various months of the year.
This was determined by the use of an
anemometer, made especially for that
particular purpose, and very similar to
those ln use by the United States weather bureau, with the exception that while
the government instruments record the
mile rate of the wind, the one made for
Mr. Feely recorded the wind at each 50th
of a mile.
After some months of hard thinking and
harder work, the machinery with all Its
Improvements was finally set In place,
and when all connections were made Mr.
Feely anxiously awaited the first trial
which should demonstrate the failure or
success of his pains and labor.
The windmill proper is the ordinary
kind, common ln all out of town and
county places where there Is no public
water supply. The steel frame or supports extend 50 feet above tho second
story of the stables, as shown ln the
picture.
At the top of this frame aro the wheel
and fan which are operated by the wind.
As the wheel revolves under tho influence
of the slightest breeze it operates a series of cog wheels which work upon a long
vertical shaft running from the uead of
the machine to the basement or cellar of
the stable where It communicates with
a second shaft leading directly to the
dynamo of the plant.
From this dynamo lead two sets of
wires. One set carry the current to the
various parts of the estate, where it is
utilized for power purposes and for lighting, while the other set of wires receive
the surplus current and store it in stor
age batteries for use when the fickle wind
Is not sufficiently strong to give power
enough to supply the necessary voltage.
When there Is a high wind there Is naturally a much stronger current than is
necessary and ln order that it may not be
wasted or play havoc with the lights the
surplus energy is led Into these storage
batteries and there kept until needed.
An Orilinnry Windmill.
A feature of this dynamo is that the
same one which generates the current
when there is a breeze also acts as a
motor during a calm and can be used
with the energy always on hand ln tne
storage batteries. This double service by
a dynamo has never before been accomplished.
In the comparatively light breeze which
was blowing when the flrst trial was
made, the wheel of the windmill begun
to slowly revolve, then faster and faster
It went until it looked like one solid piece
of circular wood spinning about In the
air.
A number of electric lights had been
put up In the stable os a test, and when
these were turned on after the windmil
had been working some time, they showed
a brilliant, steady light, the eoual of that
supplied by any electric light company ln
the country.
The experiment was a succes and
a combination of windmill and motor
had been found at such a comparatively
slight cost that the matter of expense
was hardly worth considering.
Once the practicability of the machinery
was assured, Mr. Feely lost no time ln
putting electric lights throughout his
house and stables and about his private
grounds and utilizing the new agency for
various  household  and  farm  purposes.
The whole secret of the success of his
work Is ln the dynamo which ln a nurhber
of ways Is different from the usual elec-
trie dynamo. In an ordinary dynamo the
voltage depends upon tho speed with
which its armature Is driven and It was
found that owing to the various speed
at which the windmill was driven, an
ordinary dynamo would be entirely useless for sueh purposes as Mr. Feely intended, hence it was necessary to con
struct the special one.
In devising sueh a dynamo three
things were essential. It must bo self-
regulating, free from all mechanical
contrivances and above all It must be
efficient.
The self-regulating part of the requls
Ites was accomplished by a peculiar and
somewhat complicated arrangement of
Its Integral parts and not by any mechanical addition. It required no llttlo
thought and many trials to eventually
accomplish this end, but It was finally
dono and moreover It was done without
adding or taking anything from the
machine.
When the dynamo was tried It was
found to work perfectly. By keeping the
voltage constant It was found that substantially all the power of the windmill,
however erratic, could be utilized by
simply increasing the current in proportion to the Increase of the speed of the
windmill.
During his experiments in ascertaining
the varying changes in the velocity of
the wind Mr. Feery found that there Is
not as great a difference as Is generally
supposed between winter and summer
winds.
During the mid-summer months he
found that the wind averaged eight miles
an hour while during the winter months
the average was about *dne miles an hour.
A  Speed Efiuultzer.
One cf the most important features of
this new contrivance Is what is called a
speed equalizer of special construction by
which the surplus energy generated by
high winds is mechanically stored and delivered to the batteries in a comparatively
uniform manner.
As It is necessary that a dynamo must
attain a sufficient velocity to give an
electro-motive force sufficient to overcome
the back electro-motive force of the battery, it was therefore necessary to devise
some means of preventing the current
from the storage battery passing back to
the dynamo when not needed.
This was accomplished by a device
which, when the electro-motive force of
the dynamo rose to a given point, would
connect with the circuit, thereby sending
it into the storage battery, and again
opening the clrcut when, owing to decreasing speed of the dynamo, the electro-motive force falls below that of the
storage battery.
in every way this windmill electric
plant has proved itself a success under
even the most varying conditions. The
lights in the house, stable and those
scattered about ln different parts of tlie
estate burn as steadily as any electric
lights, maintaining an unvarying uniformity, no matter whether there is a gale
blowing or a dead calm.
The entire plant Is as nearly self-acting
as it is possible to make machinery, absolutely no attention being necessary except
once in two weeks when It Is cleaned and
oiled.
The first cost is practically all the expense and following this example the
time Is not far distant when private electric light plants operated by wind will
be the property of every owner of a country estate when a large number of lights
are desirable.
HER    LETTER    OF    INTRODUCTION.
Cut Off the Signature to Put in Her
Collection  of Autoq-rniih*-.
She was the daintiest little maid that
ever made a hard-working Sunday editor perjure himself by telling her that -die
"really ought to try the magazines." She
came Into the office, bringing with her
an odor of violets and about a ton of
manuscript, and her manner was :lmt of
a young woman making her entrance at
a 5 o'clock tea, says the Chicago Times-
Herald.
"I was not sure about what you might
like; I never read your paper," she said,
"so I just brought specimens of all my
work. You can read it all, can't you? Of
course If there is anything wrong you
might tell me—I could easily alter it."
The Sunday editor gasped. "Oh, yes, I
could return it, by mail. We are overcrowded just now, and really I—"
"Never mind, I can easily stop in and
see you about them myself. And I
shouldn't expect you to use all of them
this week, you know. I am quite a business woman, I assure you."
"Ye-es," said the Sunday editor. It was
all he could say, he felt faint.
"Yes, indeed. By the way, I have such
a lovely letter of introduction to you. It
is from Mr. Penwell, the author, you
know. He hadn't time to read my work
himself, but he said to bring It to you
as you were such a friend of his."
"Oh! Now, where did I put—here it is
—the letter, you know. As I said, I am
quite a business woman, and while I wish
to be judged quite on my own merits, I
brought it along."
"This Is certainly Mr. Penwell's handwriting, but—but I don't see any signature
to it!"
"Of course not," replied this business
woman, "It Isn't there. I cut It out for
my autograph album; you see, I knew 1
could just tell you it was from him!"

Ed J. Wagner, village clerk, committed
suicide at Allegan, Mich., the other day.
He held a shotgun to his breast and pulled the trigger with a string.
He was in charge of the marshal last
night on a $600 shortage being found in
his books, and this morning he asked If
he could go to the office and write a letter. The marshal allowed him to do so,
and while the officer was out on the sidewalk he heard the report of the gun.
Running upstairs the marshal found
Wagner upon the floor, with a big hole
in his chest. His coat, vest and hat lay
on a chair, his collar and necktie were
on the table and a note reposed upon the
desk. The note read: "Fish, Pope and
Sutphin are my murderers." Fish is
prosecuting attorney, Pope president of
the village and Sutphin chairman of the
finance  committee.
Wagner was a member of the Maccabees, A. O. U. W., a member of the fire
department and serving his fourth term
as village clerk.

their families."
In addition to her duties as police matron Mrs. Emma Taylor will hereafter do
a little detective work, so that Seattle will
be one of the few pouce forces on the
Pacific coast that can lay claim to having
a female detective, says the Times. The
fact that she was roobed while shopping
has spurred her on to become a member
of the detective force. She never knew
that she bad the power to make arrests
or she would be the heroine of a very
clever capture of two shoplifters. Mrs.
Taylor is now looking for the shoplifters
and unless the publication of this Item
causes them to leave the city It will be
but a question of a few days until thc-y
are behind the prison bars. Acting Chief
Sullivan admitted that Mrs, Taylor has
authority to make arrests 'the same," as
he expressed It, "as has any other member of the police force." When asked
about the shoplifting case he refused to
say anything, stating that Mrs. Taylor is
competent to look after cases which come
to her attention.
Nevertheless the story back of Mrs.
Taylor's announced intention of doing detective work In the future Is out. Last
Monday afternoon Mrs. Taylor and her
daughter went up on Pike street to do
some shopping. They went Into one store
of prominence and made a purchase
which Included some ribbon. The clerk
placed her purchase in one package and
Mrs. Taylor placed the package on the
counter.
Then she went to another part of the
store to look at some dress goods. When
she returned for her package it was gone.
Mrs. Taylor has detective Instinct about
her. "When she enters a store or any place
of business it is as natural for her to size
up the people present as It is to for a
horse to eat hay when It Is placed before
him. Mrs. Taylor had done that very
thing when she entered the store to make
her purchases. She recalled having seen
two young women standing near her. She
had regarded them as suspicious characters. As soon as she found her package
gone Mrs. Taylor made haste to leave tho
store. She saw the two girls hurrying
down Pike toward another store. Mrs.
Taylor followed them. They entered the
store. Mrs. Taylor entered. They made
a small purchase. Mrs. Taylor went to
the counter, where they were standing
and made some trivial purchase.
When the girls saw her they turned and
left the store. Mrs. Taylor left, too. Once
outside Mrs. Taylor made up her mind to
place the two girls under arrest. She
knew that as a police matron she ha-d vir
tually the same authority that is vested
in a policeman, but she was not positive
about her power to make arrests. She /
hesitated and while she was weighing the
matter in her mind the girls lost themselves in a crowd.
Mrs. Taylor went to police headquarters
and held a consultation with Captain Sullivan as to her authority to make arrests.
Captain Sullivan, it is said, told her that
she certainly had such a right and reminded her of the fact that it Is her duty
to apprehend criminals. Mrs. Taylor was
satisfied and all day yesterday she was on
the lookout for the two young shoplifters,
for she is satisfied that the girls relieved
her of her package. As yet she has not
found them, but she is satisfied that she
wili be able to lay her hands on them In
a few days.

SHOWS    HOW    BATSON    GOT    LEFT
BUTTE    WOMAN'S    DOUBLE    AND    A
CORONER'S INQUEST.
The   Doily   Proved   to   He  Tliut  of  a
Discharged  Patient  From   tlie
Uluekfoot   An> linn.
He  Undertook   to  Hire  it  New  Cook.
Hut  Found  It u  111k  Task.
The woman who (lied in the city jail
and    whose    marvelous    resemblance   to
Mrs.   Rooney   puzzled   so   many   people,
was posilively Identified at the coroner's
inquest as Fannie Gillette, and she was
sent to Butte about a week ago from tliu
Insane asylum at Blackfoot, Idaho, says
the Butte Miner.
The coroner's jury was sworn at 8
o'clock. The first witness to testify was
Ernest Thompson, tbe county Jailer.
He said he had seen the body, and was
not sure of the woman's Identity. Before her death he was quite certain she
was Mrs. Rooney, who had been under
his charge for a couple of days in the
county jail early in January, and who
was later released by Justice Burns. Now
that ho had seen the remains he was
inclined to think himself mistaken.
Deputy Sheriff P. H. Sldley of Center-
ville then took the stand. He was almost
positive the dead woman was Mrs. Rooney, especially as the latter had a small
scar on the side of her nose, which the
deceased also showed.
Patrick Burns, Justice of the peace,
said he had discharged Mrs. Rooney on
January 8. She had come before him
charged with vagrancy, and entered a
plea of guilty, but appealed to the mercy
of the court. She said she was a hard
working woman, and if released would
find employment. She had not been here
very long. Burns turned her loose, and
has seen her several times since. He was
shown the body, and was quite positive
it was that of Mrs.  Rooney.
Dr. McCrlmmon was then called, and
testified as to the woman's condition
when he found her at the city jail. The
drug had already gotten in Its work,
and she was too far gone to be saved.
The next witness was George Miller,
who had just arrived at Butte from
Blackfoot, Idaho.
"I have seen the remains," said Mr.
Miller, "and can positively identify them
as those of Mrs. Fannie Gillette, who left
Blackfoot for Butte exactly a week ago
today."
"Tell the jury what you know about
her," said Coroner Tremblay.
"Up to Monday last," began the witness, "I was employed as an attendant
at the insane asylum at Blackfoot. Mrs.
Gillette was brought there August 19, and
remained until a week ago. She was
not placed in strict confinement, but assisted the matrons in the kitchen. She
said her trouble was due to morphine. 1
saw her several times daily, and danced
with her frequently at the balls given
by the inmates. She was a cheerful woman, a great talker, and perfectly rational after she had been in the asylum
for a few weeks. I often asked her why
she did ask some of her people for relief. She told me she had a sister and a
brother-in-law who is a prosperous physician at Ogden, Utah, but they had cast
her off.
"The authorities of the asylum decided
to send Mrs. Gillette to Butte. She was
accordingly put on the train by a night
watchman, who gave the conductor her
mileage. She was given $2 in money, and
had no baggage.
"When I got to Butte I thought of Mrs.
Gillette, and made some inquiries about
her, but learned nothing. This morning,
near the Walker house, I saw a woman
that I thought was the one of whom I
was in search. I approached and addressed her, whereupon she told me' her name
was Rooney. On looking closely I saw
my mistake, but the resemblance between the two women was remarkable.
"About noon I told an officer that I
was trying to find Mrs. Gillette, and gave
him a description of her. He then took
me to the undertaking rooms and showed me her body, which I at once recognized. I am positive the dead woman is
Fannie Gillette. There can be no mistake."
Mr. Miller identined the clothes that
Mrs. Gillette had on when picked up in
Main alley. He had Issued the cloth of
which they were made from the supply
department of the asylum and described
them fully before they were shown to
him.
Jailer Anderson told how Officer Sted-
man found the woman on a lumber pile
In Main alley near Alluminum street, at
about 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and
brought her to the city jail in a hack,
thinking she was drunk. At 10 o'clock
ln the evening she died.
Deputy Sheriff Sidley entered at this
juncture and said he wanted to acknowledge his error In identifying the body as
that of Mrs. Rooney. He had Just seen
and talked with Mrs. Rooney, and she
was very much alive.
The jury returned a verdict to the effect that Fannie Gillette came to her
death from an overdose of morphine.
There was no evidence to show suicidal

much of Mrs. Batson's trouble with servant girls arose from the fact that she
was too pliant, too yielding in her management of Ihem.
"You want to be firm at the beginning and lay aown tne law flat before

AN   HEIRESS   TO    A   BIG    FORTUNE.
An   Italian   Woman   Claiming*   to   He
Heiress of an English llaronet.
Mrs. David E. Whiting, wife of a Grand
Trunk railway lireman, living at South
Bend, Ind., claims to be half heir to a
joint estate In England of over $5,000,000.
Mrs. Whiting says she is of Italian parentage, that her maiden name was Ele-
nora Duce Kerseretto, and that she was
born in Rome HG years ago. She was married at the age of 13, to an Italian army
officer, and later married Sir Henry
Scott, baronet, who died eight years ago,
and from whom she was divorced but a
month when he died. Her dead daughter
was born a month after her husband's
death, and the remaining heirs to the
vast estate were Sir Joseph and Sir Edgar Scott, besides herself and child. The
recent death of Sir Joseph and her own
daughter leaves the estate jointly to Sir
Edgar and  herself.
Four years ago she came to America
and three years ago last Christmas she
married Whiting at Chicago. He is a
poor man. For seven years she has kept
her whereabouts a secret for fear of her
child being taken from her by English
relatives, and she has failed to draw from
her English estate. Mrs. Whiting claims
to have followed the army when with
her husband, and became an expert nurse
—being for a time with Florence Nightingale. The present Pope Leo christened
her and married her to her lirst husband. The estate to which sue lays part
claim consists of a town house at London, a country seat at Attleboro, 00 miles
from London, and a shooting preserve
in Ireland. A letter was received from
a firm of London solicitors under date
of January 17, 1897, telling about 18 months
would be required to settle up the estate.
An annuity of $25,000 goes with the estate.
STUDY    OF   THE    SQUIRREL    PEST.
Experiment!* of a Doctor in Umatilla
County,  Oregon.
The squirrel problem is one whicli lias
never been completely solved In this county, says the East Oregonlan of Pendleton.
To an extent, Increase of the pests has
been prevented by the use of strychnine.
But this method has been successful only
In keeping the squirrel from entirely overrunning the grain fields. No one has yet
proved that the animals can be Inoculated
or otherwise treated so as to accomplish
extermination. Only when this Is done
will the squirrel pest have been removed
and Umatilla county freed from large annual losses.
Dr. C. J. Smith has during the past
year made some experiments which promise to come nearer accomplishing desired
ends than any one whose operations have
come to the notice of the public through
the medium of the East Oregonlan. Dr.
Smith collected a number of healthy
squirrels, and by an ingenious device of
separate cages and the inoculation of virus which he himself has prepared, demonstrated that the squirrels could be destroyed in this manner, provided the
deadly effect of the virus would not run
out when the process had been carried
through the numerous stages necessary
to extensive inoculation. Dr. Smith informed the East Oregonlan that it is
his purpose to pursue Ills experimentation
during the present year, provided his
practice will allow him time. He hopes
to be able to further demonstrate that
the virus can be used on the squirrels
by turning them loose and sending them
among their kind as agents of desl ruction, and the carrying of the fatal disease
which will bring extermination.
Frank B. Clopton has faith in the Pasteur virus, with which he made some
experiments on* his ranch last summer.
The virus Is made ln Chicago, and he proposes to pursue his investigations during
the coming season.
Nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash
are the constituents most likely to be
deficient In soils or most quickly exhausted by the production and removal
of crops. These are known as "essential" fertilizing constituents, and the
value of a commercial fertilizer is determined almost exclusively by the amount
and form of nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash which it contains. It does
not follow, however, that all soils or
crops will respond equally to applications
of materials containing these elements,
because the needs of soils and the requirements of crops vary, says Edward
Ii. Voorhees In a bulletin issued by the
department of agriculture at Washington.
Soils differ in respect to their needs for
specific elements, owing either to their
method of formation or lo their management and cropping. A sandy soil Is
usually deficient In all the essential plant
food constituents—nitrogen, phosphoric
acid and potash. On the other hand, a
soli very rich In vegetable matter is frequently deficient In mineral matter, while
a limestone soil is likely to contain considerable proportions of phosphoric acid.
These are indications in a general way,
and they explain why It Is that different
kinds of soil that have not been cropped
differ In respect to their needs In reference to the different fertilizing constituents.
Methods of management and cropping
also exert an Iniluence; for example, soils
of equal natural fertility may not respond equally to uniform methods of fertilization, because In the one case a single
crop, requiring for Its growth proportionately more of one of the essential elements than of another, is grown year
after year, and it may be that the element required is the one that exists in
the soil in least quantity. On the other
hand, crops may be grown that demand
but minimum amounts of the elements in
question; hence its application to the
soil for the one crop may be followed by
largely Increased returns, while for the
other but little if any increase in crop is
apparent.
In the matter of management, too, a
considerable variation may be observed.
One soil may lose a large portion of its
essential constituents, because no pains
are taken to retain for the use of the
crop the constituents annually rendered
available through the natural agencies
of sun, air and water; while in another,
by means of careful cultivation and the
use of absorbents and catch crops, the
constituents made available are largely
retained.
An Important Difference.
Crops differ in respect to their power
of acquiring food. The legumes, a class
of plants which Includes the various
clovers, peas, beans, vetches, etc., differ
from other plants in being able, under
proper conditions, to acquire their nitrogen from the air, and can, therefore,
make perfect growth without depending
upon soil nitrogen. On the other hand,
the various grasses and grains are not
only dependent upon soli nitrogen, but
they must have an abundance during
their most rapid period of growth in order to attain their maximum development. For the latter class of plants favorable results are secured from the
proper use of nitrogenous manures, while
for the former class the application of
nitrogenous manures simply results in
supplying an element which could have
been secured quite as well by the plant
itself, without expense. Illustrations
could be multiplied, though perhaps less
striking than this, showing that the variations in crops in respect to their power for acquiring food are really very
great, and a right knowledge of this fact
has a most Important bearing upon the
economical use of commercial manures.
"The most satisfactory, and, Indeed,
usually the only method," says Armsby,
"by which we can at present determine
the needs of a soil is to ask the question
of the soil itself by growing a crop upon
it with different kinds of fertilizers and
noting the result. Such soil tests with
fertilizers have in many cases given results of much Immediate practical value
for the locality ln which they were undertaken. As a rule, however, farmers have
looked upon such experiments as something too costly and complicated for them
to undertake, and consequently they have
perforce been content to use fertilizers in
a more or less haphazard manner, and
in many cases, no doubt, a great financial  disadvantage."
While such tests are not so difficult or
expensive as is often supposed, it is recommended that before the farmer undertakes them for the first timo he seek the
advice of some one familiar with the details of such work, or, preferably, apply
to the experiment station of his state.
HE GENEROUS WITH THE BUDDING
Dorothy Tucker Hum Learned Something   Alioul   Keeping Cows.
If you believe that cows must be turned out In the cold to exercise, just keep
a few in and give Ihem the same feed
and care, and notice which do the best,
says Dorothy Tucker in Farm Journal.
Clean the stable at least twice each
day.
The task will take much less time and
be easier done. The cows can be kept
clean with less time spent and they will
be   much   more   comfortable.
Too much care can not be taken in
keeping the cows clean.
They should be brushed all over from
horns to heels every day.
If any particles of dirt adhere to the
udder that can not be taken off with
the brush, a.sponge and water should
be used, and the udder carefully dried
with a towel.
Pure, sweet milk, cream or butter of
perfect llavor can not be produced if tlie
cows are not  kept absolutely clean.
Did you ever stop to think what a
wonderful animal a cow is? For nearly
a year, twice each day, her generous gift
of rich milk, wuh no uncertainty, Is truly
wonderful.
The man that starves, neglects an.l
abuses her,  is Indeed a brute.
Be generous with the bedding and absorbents.
There Is money ln them. Comfort in
the cows and value In the fertilizers.
Who would let the cows lie on the frozen manure? Not a Farm Journal subscriber,   I  am   positive.
One of the best feeds for milk production is buckwheat middlings and wheat
bran.    This   fed   on   good   ensilage   with
plenty of earB, makes a good and profitable ration. A little uilmeal added will
make  il  still  better.
I'm more Ice in this year, n i.i a serious loss to have  the Ice give out.
Be sure to have a generous supply, so
there need be no trouble with the milk,
cream or butter, or the ice creams or other dainty dishes that are so delicious
during the summer.
So many are troubled by warts on cows'
teats and bags, that a simple remedy
is needed. Grease applied daily will soin
cause them to disappear.

WHAT  TO   DO   FOR  THE   CHICKENS.
Prevention    Is    Worth    More    Than
Any   of   the   Cures.

wriies iu the Farm,  Stock and Home:
"Please tell me what to do for my
chickens. They got blind In one eye, an 1
It will run something like froth, and after a while lho other one gets blind.
Their beads seem to be enlarged around
the eye and some of them make a rattling sound, but not the blind uny more
than others. It seems to be contagious,
as more are taking it all the time, and
none have recovered from it?"
Answer,—We hoped what we had written heretofore In these columns would
aid our readers in determining what ailed
their fowls, and help them In treating
them. But we will give a little more definite description of the diseases usually
affecting poultry at this time of the
year, and hop- from it and what has
already been written that our correspondent can name the disease, locate the
cause and remove It. and affect a cure.
Dampness, exposure, foul coops and
runs, crowding, general debility, etc., are
responsible for all such aliments. Far
too little attention is usually given to
fowls, and to keeping their houses clean
and comfortable. Our advice, if given
Just as we feel when the fowls are only
common stock, would be to kill and bury
all affected ones, clean up and begin a-
new, If taken in time such cases are
not difficult to cure, but If the disease-
has once obtained a secure foothold, as it
seems to have done in this ease, you will
save time and bother, to say nothing
of the lives of the other fowls, by cutting the heads oft all the worst cases.
The diseases affecting the throat, nostrils,
eyes and head are usually bronchitis, catarrh, canker, diphtheria and roup. Usually any or all of these are called roup.
In bronchitis there is a rattling in the
throat, due to a cold settling on the lungs.
The nostrils often discharge and the eyes
are often Inflamed. In catarrh, which is
a cold in the head, the eyelids become
puffed or swollen, with usually a watery
condition of the eyes, and a glutinous
discharge from the nostrils, sneezing,
ruffled plumage, poor appetite and a general drooping appearance. Neither of the
above are contagious. Tn diphtheria, or
ulcerated sore throat, and canker, the
mouth and throat fill up with a white
mucous, resembling a thick saliva. Little white ulcers are found in the mouth
and sometimes on the tongue. Both diseases are contagious and are often accompanied hy symptoms of catarrh and
roup. Roup is usually caused by neglect
of the minor diseases of the air passages, produced by colds. There is discharge from the nose and eyes, which
becomes thick and very offensive. The
nostrils become filled up and closed by
the discharge. The eyelids become swollen and stuck together. The whole face
often becomes swollen. It is considered
hy nearly all poultrymen to be contagious.
The ailments In poultry are in many
cases identical with those of the hum.tn
body, and require about the same treatment. Prevention is worth more than
the proverbial amount of cures In all
such cases, but where disease has once
gained a foothold we must do the best
we can under the circumstances, and It
should   be  done  at   once.
EASTERN WASHINGTON LIVE STOCK
Scarcity     Is    More    Apparent     Noiv
Than for Years Past.
Colfax, Jan. 27.—Stock oi all kinds, with
the exception of horses, is scarcer in this
county than for a long time. Hogs proved to be unprofitable when wheat reached
the 50-cent mark, and hundreds of heads
have been sold and shipped to various
markets, some going as far as Kansas
City and Omaha. Many more are being
fattened for shipment now and will be
disposed of as soon as they can be placed
in condition. Corn is being shipped in
from Iowa and Missouri to feed them on,
having been found to be much cheaper
than wheat. Fat cattle have been In
strong demand for some time, and buyers have been collecting them together
for shipment to Omaha and other eastern
markets. Montana cattle buyers have also been through the county buying up
all the stock cattle they can get to stock
tho Montana ranges. The winters are
found so severe there that buying young
stock each year is found to be better
and more profitable than breeding them.
There are a gooil many sheep in the
western part of the county, but not so
many as last year, on account of the
scarcity of grass and other feed. Further west. In Franklin and Adams counties, they are more numerous. Horses,
on the other hand, are more numerous
than ever. Practically none have been
sold out of the county for four years and
the bands have gone on Increasing without care or attention, and now lhe ranges
are so short that they are starving to
death  by scores in some districts,

"The wheat crop is always being harvested somewhere," said a man on the

farmer Is not thinking of wheat, the crop
of Australia, Chile and tlie Argentine Republic is being put on the market. In

A     MAD     MASTIFF     RUNS     AMUCK.
Six    Persons    Bitten     Recently    at
Wheeling,   w.   Va.
Wheeling, W. Va., was ln a state of
torror the other night on account of a
huge mastiff which was running amuck,
afflicted with rabies, biting and snapping
all who came in its way. The animal
first appeared about 10 o'clock at night
ln tho second ward, where its actions
created alarm, and caused tlie police department to send out an alurm to all officers.
Tho dog was a powerful beast, ami
when it attacked Margaiet Schell, an
11-year-old girl, she wus completely at
Its mercy. It chewed her cheek and forehead terribly, making a wound from
whicli the blood llowed freely. Officer
Gardner tried to kill the animal, but
could not get a shot because of the people
on tho street. The dog was next heard
of half a mile away, where It attacked
Richard Kenney, biting him through the
nose very  severely.
About 4 o'clock ln the morning It attacked Victor Bauer, a mail wagon
driver, larcerating his neck and face
badly. Bauer was alone, and though
quite a strong man, he could do little
against the powerful brute.
Shortly after daylight Harry Freeze, a
16-year-old boy was attacked and bitten
through the arm. The ilesh was lacerated for four Inches and the wound is
very severe. A little later John Speldel
met the brute ln the fifth ward, and
escaped into a house, but not till he
had been badly scratched on the hand by
tho dog's teeth.
By this time the police had been massed
from all parts of the city and were hunting the dog. Officer Charles Zimmerman
was tho first to encounter it. He tried
to shoot the dog, but It sprang at him
and as he fired took the revolver and
nearly the whole of the officer's right
hand Into his mouth. The sharp teeth
sank Into the flesh, cutting a gash clear
through the thick part of the hand. Four
more bullets ended the dog's career. Tin.
animal was a monster mastiff and belonged to Fred Goothart.
The police have been busy all day killing dogs supposed to have been bitten by
the maddened brute. Several other persons receiving scratches from the mad
dog, and four or five had their clothing
torn, two men having their coats stripped
from their backs. A movement has been
set on foot to send the victims to the
Pasteur Institute at New York for treatment.

portion of our property I mean that we
must move. I wouldn't have the nerve

Having his bones broken has become so
much a second nature thai ii is only lho
uneventful mounts that are now noteworthy lo Clancy. In fact, In- has come
lo expect some crushing accldenl every
linn- he lakes ihe Held, and looks upon
Hi. in as in- re Incidents of a day's work.
Out of lhe six hrief years that he has
been hurdling fully two of them have
seen Clancy swathed in bandages, plaster casts and splints. Where another
man with such a remarkable series ol' injuries to his credii would have made
careful nolo of them, this unlucky jockey
has long since losi all definite idea of
when, where and how each terrible fall
was received. To him there is nothing
extraordinary in sueh a shattered and
contused anatomy, and to gef him to
talk upon the subject Is a task approaching Herculean proportions. But the
young hurdler's numerous falls have always been so spectacular thai they have
become a great pari of American turf
history.
Beginning at the crown of his head,
and roughly enumerating, this luckless
jockey has been smashed up somewhat in
ibis wise: Skull fractured from being
thrown against a post; collar hone broken
twice at different times; both shoulders
broken In different races; left arm broken in two places below the elbow; seven
ribs badly fractured, all at one.-; let'! leg
broken in three places below lhe knee;
right leg broken ln three places below the
knee: right leg broken again in Iwo
places below tbe knee; left knee cap nearly kicked off; large slice bitten -an of
calf of righl  leg.
Clancy has had broken fingers an-l
toes, but as In- regards them as injuries
too trivial to be noticed, they are nol
included in lhe black lisi. Bruises, gashes and contusions have left no impression
on Clancy's mind, although iSe^wtTt DCtir
the innumerable sears of them lo his
grave. In his lasi tumble he was badly
shaken up. bin as no bones wur., broken,
making confinement to his room a dread
necessity, be smiles condescendingly on
the fates that have relaxed somewhat ot
their unkindness. His good right arm—
and there are those al the race track who
can attest ils prowess on athletic lines
other than those of handling whip and
rein—seems to be the only pari of his
person to escape the general devastation.

GOLDEN  OPPORTUNITIES.
Thero is not a better Held for prospecting in tbe world than in and around
this district. For miles there is a complete net work of ledges that await their
opening by industrious ana experienced
prospectors,
As an old miner said the other day,
"If it few hundred good miners would
go to prospecting anywhere within a
;t radius of fifty miles in this district
limy would be rewarded by finding good
properties and thereby liolp to inalto
this the banner mining district of the
now northwest. It can be truly said not
one out of a thousand claims, that exist in this district, liaa yet been developed, or actually worked sufficient to
prove their value, and it is reasonable
io presume, that many of those undiscovered properties arc as rich its any
ihat have already been opened up,"
Tbe North Pork of the Kettle river
drains a section of country that is yet
unknown, outside of an urea of twenty
miles distant. It is in a granite belt
i hat is reported to be not only rich in
. old-bearing quartz leads* but in alluvial deposits that ure rich in placers.
\'cry few practical and experienced pros-
pectins have penetrated this country,
consequently there is no information of
u practical nature availible from this
source. The charaoter of the quartz is
free-milling and from what we can loam,
in small vienB, but sufficient from Bur-
face croppings to guarantee their rich*
oess. The auriferous gravel from the
bar and gulch deposits is sufficient also
to warrant a thorough investigation of
the country by men who uro not only
practical miners but experienced prospectors in all branches of the mining
business.
The future of tho (irand Forks district ie indeed bright and tho progress
of this year wi'l bo made upon a very
solid foundation, and to all appearances
the threshold of a new mining era has
been reached.

Items ol Interest Concerning Proposed Lines Thai Tap This Section.
F, Aug. Heinzo, of the Columbia and
Western railway, is said lo be perfecting arrangements for the extension of hiB
road westward to the Okanogan country
as fur as I'endicton, a small town on
Okanagan lake.
Tho Miner is in a position to say that
should this be done, a different route
than the direct oxtension from Rossland
westward will be chosen. Tho Trail
Robson branch of tho system will cross
tho Columbia river at or n'etti Robson,
and after skirting the west shore of that
stream will run along the valley of Oog
reek, a small tributary of the Columbia
vhieh has it source near the summit of
tbo Gold range. Theso lofty mountains
'drni the divide between tho valley of
tbo Columb'a und the Kettle rivor basin,
and will bo crossed by tho proposed
railway running through Burnt pass.
I) -s'cending into the Kettle river valley,
tbe line will take tlie shortest practical
route to Pentieton wheio it will connect
with the SliUBwap and Okanogan
branch of the O. P. R. and either meet
ho proposed Vancouver, Victoria and
1-lnstern railway, or follow the route of
that line to tidewater, should the peo-
la of Victoria and V incouver fail in
thoir enterprise.
it is an open secret that Mr. Heinze
dies not propose to confine his railroad
building in liritish Columbia to the few
miles of line that he now has from Trail
to Rossland and Robson. His present
great interests in Kootenay have proved
exceptionally profitable; ho is undoubtedly making mors money every day from
hi- smelter than any other individual in
t'ils section of British Columbia. He
has confessed to the full icalization of
the wonderful resources and possibilitos
of this district and continues to place
his profits in such varied interests that
be is, of necessity, hero to stay.
IliB railway system is at the morcy of
th'-C. P. R. on ono en:i and the American railroads at tha other end. lie worked liko a beaver to control the Crow's
N st Pass road to thoEast Kootenay coal
deposits and failed. He is more of a
smelter man than anything else and has
given evideneo that In will lead in that
industry in Kootenay. Tho almost vital
Iiuportancj to him of obtaining an economical fuol supply is undoubtedly the
origin nf the Pentieton extension, with
Itio ultima!-" aim of securing an indo-
pindent railroad communication with
tho Vancouver island coal fields.
Mr. Heinze. is known to havo lots of
financial backing and has able lieuten-
ai ts who aru at present busily engaged
in working cut tangible schemes in connection with what he has already accomplished.—Nelson Minor.
The legislation to bo asked at tho present sessijn of tho provincial legislature
on behalf of projected railways is cer
tiiinly to be important, Amongst the
principal bills coming up will bo an act
for the incorporation of tho Victoria,
Vancouver and Eastern railway, who
propose to build through tho south
rn part of the Province. The other
railway bills are! From Granite Creek,
West Kootenay, to Macaroni Basin and
the White (house mineral district; from
tho head of Lynn Canal to tho Provincial boundary; from Kaslo to Lardo
liver, and thence lo tho head waters of
the Duncan, with a branch to Lardeau;
from Galena bay to within a radius uf
50 miles; from Revelstoke to tbo junction of Uanoe rivir, from Alberni to
Nanaimo; from Glenora to feslin lake;
from Ashcroft to Cariboo; from the
Stickeen river to a point near Deaee
lake Cassiar; from Christina lake to
Ptintlcton and from Bodlington to Nelson: from Fort Steele to Guidon.
V
Tho Seattle, Wash., PoSt-Intelligencer
of February 11th, contains a long article of more than ordinary iniportanco in
connection with railway information that
is at present available. That portion
which refers to liritish Columbia wo
reprint for the benelit of our readers:
"If tho story, which comes from Victoria, turns out to be true, it will entirely
upset the calculations of many who have
been awaiting the beginning of railroad
building across the line by the Canadian Pacific.
"In brief the Victoria story is to the
effect that the Ci'ow'b Nest Pass road
will be built, but it will not bo the Canadian Pacific that will build it."
"The Poet-Iptelligencer'B informant
stated that the McLean brothers, of
Vancouver, promoters of the Victoria,
Vancouver & Eastern, are now in Vic
tprla, and are to apply to the provincial
parliament for a charter for a road east
that will  enter the mining   districts a
strong competitor with any road or System that may also have eyos directed
that way. Tho same informant also
states that the Canadian government is
i ot disposed at present to grant tbo
Canadian Pacific a charter, and the big
transcontinental system will have to try
again.
The scheme is for a ferry from Nunai-
nio to Vancouver, and from that city
through the Hope mountains to Ross-
liind and Nelson, and then east through
lho much diacuBBod Crow's Nest pass to
Lethbrldge,
The part ot the information that ro-
fe.'s to the route through the Hope
mountains slates that the linn chosen
is one that whs condemned by the Canadian Pacilic engineers as impracticable.
It is not stilted what the reason was for
the condemnation, but tho McLeans are
sulislled With it, as the grade is only one
of 2.'a per cent, regarded as a sinecure
in railroad construction. Il is tho intention uf the projectors to rfin a line
north frond Nelson to Kaslo, on Kootenay lake, and take care of that promising section.
McLean brothers say they have no
en 1 of English capital waiting to find
investment 111 the V., V. & E„ and the
charter is all that is necessary to bring
about the work.
Nelson which is one of tho objective
points of the Victoi'iu.Vancotivor & Eastern-, is ambitious to become a railroad
c :;ter of the mining region, and besides
the application to parliament by I he McLeans, another will also bo introduced
if the constructio 1 of a railroad from
lie llington, near the international bound*
tl iry line, to Nelson with powers to construct and maintain branch lines. Bed*
li. gton is in tho Kootenay valloy, about
ton miles from tho mouth of tho river,
seventy miles from Bonner's Ferry, Plait -, on the main line of tho Great North-
it has been stated before that the
Iroat Northern had in contemplation a
ranch line from somo point on tho main
no in Idaho to a point on the Kootenay
• untry.    Should the road from  Bod-
-gton to Nelso.i bo constructed, it is
1 probable that the missing link of
hirty-tbree miles from Bonners Ferry
: • Bedlingt'on will long remain without
nili'oa'd facilities,   Those who are in a
sifion to talk with certainty say that
li - Kaslo tiz Slocan was built   with  the
sistance of the Great Northern, En*
i.iners of that company have been en-
;i:god for several months past survey-
ns along the upper Kootenay river and
re now in  tbe   vicinity  ot Bedlington.
The construction of theso roads will
i'o lesB than & year if it is decided to
r.ish work. Tho advantages of an all-
ail routo to the Slocan from the main
iii of a transcontinental road aro bo
n inifeBt that it is not worth while point-
ig them out.
