How  the  Accident  Occurred.
The two trains whieh were in the collision wero usually combined into one
long train, but us the trallic today was
so heavy it wus divided, the tirst section
running as a lucal uccominodutiun,-while
the secund, which sturtcd from Mansfield
15 minutes later than the lirst, ran as un
express. The loeul train due at Sharon
ut 7:112 was 13 minutes lata. It left Mansfield ou lime, making two stops, and had
losL 13 minutes between M-.mslleld und
Shunm. It was due in Canton Junction,
the next station beyond Sharon, twu minutes ulieud uf the express train; whloh
should have passed it there. Sharon is
situated on a curve and both the outward
und inward trucks ure protected by electric bluck signals. After the accident
it wus thought the block signals protecting the inward track were set at danger,
showing, as it wus intended, that UlSie
wus a train in the station.
Thare wus no warning given by tho
conductor uf tho Munsllcld lueul tu show
the track was not clear at the station,
und it was nut until lie was within 3UU
feet uf the stutiun that the engineer uf
the express noticed unything wrung, lie
imnu'tliuti'ly set all brakes aud whistled
a warning, but it was tuo lute U> stop
tho express, lt crashed into the roar
car, splitting it asunder nud completely
demolishing it with tlio exception of the
roof. Its speed wus not slackened until
the engine had penetrated fully live feet
into tho rear of tho second car. The escaping sleum entered tho cur und badly
sculded a number of the occupants. The
roof of the lust ear was forced on top
of the engine of the express and remained there, as the unly portion of the cur

Engineer Gctchell and Fireman Holmes
of the express train both jumped. Uot*
eliell was cut and bruised about the hend.
Ile stuteil nfter the accident thnt he left
Munsllcld promptly on time, nud there
wus no incident until he wus within 4UU
feet of the Mansfield train. Then lie saw
the red lights of thnt Irain and shut u!T
gleam. Meanwhile lie had whistled fur
brakes and used every cllort to slop his
Everyone of thc killed and injured was
nn the Munsllcld local, and the unly explanation of the fact that the number uf fatalities is uu larger is that the
passengers wore all ill tho forward end
of the car in the act of alighting tt
the station.
Thero wero about 30 people ill the last
car, and most of I hem ut the time of the
accident were cither upon the front platform or standing by the door.
Mary Fitzpntriek, 10 years old, was taken from the wreck unconscious and died
just as the special train bearing the injured started for Boston. Twenty-one of
the injured were tuken on this train and
four others whose names they refuse to
disclose remained in Sharon.
The scene about the little station at
Sharon was a terrible one. A large corps
of surgeons and two undertakers arrived
soon after the accident and immediately set to work to relieve the suffering and
cure for the bodies of the dead.
There were few lights about that portion of the truck where the accident occurred and the surgeons were compelled
to do their wurk in almost total darkness.

is ripening fust, and farmers will soon bc

barley and rye are expected to turn out
well, and at least average yields are looked

The Denver Republican publishes sonic
very interesting details nf the f.imuiis Calumet and llci-lu mine of Michigan, which
now has the deepest miniug shaft in the
world. The shaft is now 4000 feet deep-
deeper than any of the deep mines on the
Cumstoek, Nevada, and deeper than the
deepest mines in Austria, which have been
worked for centuries. The main Bhaft
has six compartments, each of which is us
large us un ordinary shaft, one fur the
ladilerways and the sixth for the wires
anil pipes, whieh are necessary fur the
telephones, light, power, water and compressed air. The remarkable feature uf
this great mine is that the course of the
vein is so uiiileviating that thc engineers
can plan work ahead for thousands of feet
with absolute certainty that the actual
working will agree with the plans. As a
result the Underground workings are laid
out with mathematical accuracy. The
great pumps that hoist thousands of gallons uf water every hour are operated interchangeably by compressed air and electricity. There are 300 power drills cun*
stantly in operation, each uf them doing
the work of six men, operated by compressed air, nnd these are kept at work
night and day. Every tun uf ure hoisted
is automatically registered in the olliee.
The I.e liol Troubles.

Judge Richardson uf (he Spokane superior

prohibits the holders of the majority of
the stock from selling to the British
America Corporation, and likewise prohibits the big syndicate from buying the.
stock and the Le lioi company from transferring it. After reviewing the testimony
nnd arguments presented, the court said
in preface to its order: "The court is of

Canyon  (.'reek   Strike.
There wns u good strike mnde in the
Bluck Bear, on Canyon creek, nenr Wallace, Idaho, a few dnys ngo. The ore is
eight feet wide and assays show it to contain 05 per cent lead and 30 ounces of silver. The Black Bear was worked quite
extensively some years ago and yielded
good returns to the owners. During tho
financial panic it was mortgaged nnd has
lain idle most of the time since. There is

The  Mountain   I.i,,,,.
The Mountain Lion lodge at Republic
has not yet been crosscut and it is the
wonder uf mining men who visit it. The
ore in the ledge along the sides of the tunnel measures 40 feet. It should be remembered, however, that the tunnel is cutting
the ledge at an angle of about 30 degrees,
J hence the true width of the ore body is
considerably less than the figure mention*
ed, but present indications are that there
will he no less than 40 feet of ore. It is
still the universal belief lhat the east
ledge has not been reached. There is threo
feet of this ore that assays $80 per ton.
lllur Strike In Idaho.
E. A. Parisot and Stewart Woodsidc
have return*)/* i" Florence, Idaho, from
Buffalo '- ,...,i, and Ihey say that Rlglcy
and Bobbins, the prospectors who made
the reient discoveries, did nut exaggerate
in the least when they suid they had "30
feet of solid quartz." The ledge is even
wider and there is sufficient ore in sight
to last a lifetime. Mr. Woodside is un old
miner and millman with 25 years' experience, and was one of the first, in 1870, tu
gu from Virginia City, Nev,, lo the Black
Hills, and from there to the Coeur
d'Alenes. When asked what he thought
uf it, he said that it wns simply wonderful, the biggest thing in the shape of
quartz he had ever seen. Tnentyfour feet
of the vein gave $34.81 in gold, nine feet
$458.17, und three feet $712.17. The two
latter assays carry aboul one-eighth in
silver. This is evidently one of the greatest strikes ever made in Idaho, with possibly the exception of the Custer mine at
Bonanza City in 1877.

Chb-ago, Aug. 22.—A Washington dispatch lo the Inter Ocean says:
President McKinley and (lie members
of in-, cabinet arc unanimous in tin- deter*
initiation that one of the (list official acts
toward bringing about a restoration of
peace and order in Cuba Shall be the dis-
bandment of the Cuban anny. As there
is uo longer a Spanish army iu the field
iu Cuba, there is no longer any reason for
the existence of tlie Cuban army, and it
is therefore Ui be regularly mustered OUt
of service. The government has no idea,
however, of adopting the ipiixotic idea of
paying the Cuban soldiers fur their services during the war or assuming the responsibility for I heir payment. 11 the
Idea were not in itself altogether a fanciful one, thore are al least three good rea-
BOns why, in the opinion of the president,
it would not be wise to adopt it:
1. The United Suites would not under
any circumstances be justified in paying
;i debt it does not owe.
2. There is no appropriation out of
whieh such payment could be made, and
it would be necessary for congress lo first
appropriate the money.
3. 'I'o place such a large sum of money
as would be required in lhe hands of the
destitute and impoverished rank ami tile
of the insurgent army would result in
their utter demoralization and bc responsible for all sorts of disorder*-.
Finn   for   I*H> His'lit
The president has, however, a plan in
mind liy which the insurgent army can
be disbanded without the necessity of
turning the soldiers adrift with no sort of
recognition of their services, Tlie plan
contemplates the granting of au honorable discharge to each soldier, accompanied by a certilicate of service ami a
promissory obligation, signed by the Cuban general in chief, to be made good out
of the public resources when the Cubans
shall have established the stable government whieh the United States has pledged
itself to help bring into existence.
In addition to thus providing for tlie
soldiers of the Cuban army, the plan under consideration by tlie president contemplates the mustering into the United
States volunteer army of a targe number
of Cuban soldiers who >re American citizens,   /heir &C1 vlcOS ConJu   be U6-AJ   U* gOOti
advantage as members of the varietur, immune regiments to be maintained on garrison duty in Cuba.
The plan above outlined has the approval of some of the highest officers (tf
the Cuban army, ami is likely to be put
into operation very soon.

BY-LAW NO.  18.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 27th, 1898.
The political situation at Victoria continues as badly jumbled as ever and tbe
solution of the difficulty is still .1 mooted
question, although a very strong belief
seems to prevail all ovcr the province
that the only possible way of settling
,'vbe matter is by another appyal to the
electors, which is something Mr. Semlin
.jnd his followers are putting forth every
possible effort to avoid.
More than the mere matter of forming
a cabinet must be considered in figuring
on the probability of the aucces or failure of Mr. Semlin's attempt at forming
a government. To be successful it is
.icccssary that it shall have a working
majority at its back, and il is extremely
doubtful if it can carty even a very
small majority in the assembly.
'then there are those who question the
constitutionally of the Lieutenant Uov-
jy-noe's dismissal of the Turner government before the election returns wore
all in, and before it was definitely ascer-
'tainyd that Mr. Turner would not have
a majority at his back when the next
^ssiiin of tbe asse.ubly was called.
This aciion is entirely unprecedented
iu the bisto.-y of the province, and its
exact legal status is a matter which is the
occasion of a great deal qf controversy
among the various legal lights of the
'province just at present.
Many other points pro and con are
.being raised by both sides and the deeper
one goes into lhe question the more conjured it becomes, and the more thoroughly he becomes conviucod that the
only possible way out of the trouble is
the immediate calling of a new election,
' It is with great satisfaction that we
note week by week and month after
month, the steady investments in mining
properties in this immediate vicinity by
•experienced and conservative mining
men whose readiness to invest their capital in the mines of this section is the
most practical indorsement possible of
their universal recognition of the great
mineral resources of tbe district.
Within the past few months more outside capital has been invested in mining
-propositions tributary to this city than
evef before since the country was first
opened up. Only a few days ago the
final payment was made on a $60,000
bond on a mining property but a short
distance from this city, and every week
witnesses some new bond given or some
new deal made for the transfer of min
ing property adjacent to the city, and
each stage which comes in brings some
new pilgrim who has beard of tbe fame
of our big ledges and rich ore bodies
and immediately thereupon flown
thitherward to get a finger in the pie
before it is all gone.
"The Record occasionally mentions
Grand Forks, and for the benefit of
those who baye asked us where such a
settlement exists, wc will explain that
Grand Forks ia a city situated in the
confluence of the north and west branches of Kettle river, and possessing electric lights, water works, elevated sidewalks, a municipal debt, fifty, four voters, a Blue Goose and an annual flood,
It is a nice place in which to reside except from the first of January to the last
of December, on account of the sociability of its peoplo, many of whom,
evolve interesting scandals liom the
depths of their inner consciousness, and
spend as much as seven days in tbe
week circulating the stories. The mayor
of Grand Forks is noted for his public
jpiritcdiioss and generosity. He has
beuii i.nov/n to promise tbe sum of three
dollars (**.$.00) to a paor woman who was
thrown from a horse and injured."

Council Held Three Meetings
This Week.
Important Transactions Took Place at
Each Session Took Time but
They Did It.
This has been one of the busiest weeks
in the history of the Grand Forks city
council. While other weeks may have
witnessed more meetings held none
bave surpassed it in the amount of actual business accomplished.
Beside the regular weekly sessions
two special meetings wero held and at
every one of them some important piece
of business was transacted.
Of course there was considerable unnecessary "rag chewing," such as the
tete-a-tete between His Worship the
mayor, and Treasurer Hay ward; Alderman McCallum's long winded preoration
in which he demanded "Justice, gentlemen, Justice!," and incidentally a sidewalk to the upper'town, to be paid for
by the citizens of this place; and a few
minor intoruptions, but as a whole the
council seemed more inclined to stick to
business than ever before.
La»1 Week's Session.
Last week's regular meeting was held
on Friday evening in the Miner office,
all the members excepting White being
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read and approved
a communicationfrom Contractor Davey
requesting an immediate settlement of
the water and light plant question, was
read, discussed and 6led away for future
The street grade contract matter then
came up for discussion and Mr. McCal-
ium thought the successful contractor
should put up bonds of i; per cent of
the full amount of the contract and then
be allowed weekly estimates of 50 per
cent of the work done.
Others thought differently and after
considerable discussion it was decided
that bonds of 50 per cent of the full
amount of the contract would be required and that 15 per cent should be
held back on the weekly estimates.
Nothing was accomplished toward the
actual letting of the contract, although
Mr. Fisher's bid was seriously considered for some time, and a communication from Chas. Cumings on the subject
was read and filed away.
A committee was appointed to investigate the repairs and changes made in
water, and light system and report on
Monday evening.
E. Spraggett's bill of $99.33 for lumber
tn (he fire hall was presented and refer-
to the finance committee.
The city clerk was instructed to send
bills for the labor and material used in
putting in the Bridge street sidewalks to
the respective property owners.
Fire insurance policies to the amount
of $4,000 had been received by the clerk
since the last meeting and were accordingly turned over to the council.
Variety was leal to the proceedings
by a lively tilt between the mayor and
treasurer, wbo, it appears, had wounded
His Worship's vanity by refusing to give
r him a list of those who had taken out re.
tail trader's licenses in the city. After
considerable personal confidences hai
been exchanged on both sides the interview was brought to a close by tbe mayor swelling up to tbe utmost capacity of
his dignity and suspending the offending
After the unfortunate victim of His
Worship's terrible wrath had gone out
to walk a race with himself and cool his
fevered brain the council again settled
down to business and instructed the city
solicitor to draw up a contract for filling
ihe sloughs, to be signed by the contractor.
An adjournment was then taken until Monday evening at 8 p. m.
Adjourned Meeting.
At the adjourned meeting held Monday evening Treasurer Hayward presented a communication to the council
setting forth the reasons for his refusal
of the mayor's request for a list of the
licenses paid and it was decided to
again reinstate him in the good graces
of the council, the clerk being instructed to notify him to that effect. All hinging however, upon his apology to tbe
A letter from Chaa. Cumings offering
to fill the sloughs for the lump sum of
13,750 was then presented and filed.
Knight moved that the contractors
who bad bid on tbe filling in of tbe
sloughs be allowed until 4 o'clock Wednesday to present an offer for a lump
]sum, which was carried but afterward
It was then decided to consider the
tenders at once and let the contract that
evening. A long discussion then ensued as to tbe merits of the different
bids and was finally settled by all tbe
contractors excepting Mr. Cumings
withdrawing their bids. Cumings' lump
bid was then accepted and the mayor
and city clerk authorized to sign the
contract on behalf of the city.
Bills of R. Tberien and W. K. C.
Manly were referred to the finance committee.
The report qf the water and light
committee was then received and the
water and light system finally apcepted.
It was then decided after considerable discussion to appoint one member
ofthe water and light committee and
one of the board of works to take charge
of Ihe system for the remainder of the
year. On this committee tbe mayor appointed Aldermen O'Connor and Manly,
and a little later appointed Aldermen
Jones and Knight to take charge of the
power house.
The city engineer was instructed to
run the plant until 3 a. m. and charge
full rates for same.
An adjournment was then taken.
The Special Session.
A special session of the city council
Wis held on Wednesday last at n a. m.,
all members being present with the exception of Alderman White.
It was ordered that a note for $145
payable to W. B. Davey, be executed
by the mayor and treasurer, also one for
the balance of the amount due him, and
the treasurer was instructed in writing
to that effect. A deduction of $17.50 is
to be mado on this latter nole on account of a rebate due tbe city on some
of the repairs to the works.
Some amendments and other changes
were made in the contract for the street
grading and filling the sloughs, and the
order for the signing of tbe contract issued to the mayor and clerk at the last
meeting was rescinded und they were
instructed to sign the amended contract.
Mr. Cumings' bondsmen were presented to the council and approved by
Bridge street was then ordered closed
from First street to the bridge and Riverside from tbe bridge to Main.
The council then took an adjournment.

Writing Us Up.
Percy Godenratb, representing the
Spokane Spokesman-Review, was in the
city this week for the purpose of writing up this place and vicinity and spent
several days in visiting the surrounding
camps, collecting data and inspecting
some of the best properties, He expressed himself as more than pleased
with the activity apparent both in thc
city and in the mining camps tributary
to it. He left pn Tuesday for Nelson,
Wash., on his way to Greenwood to
write up the properties tributary to that
place and from there he will proceed
back to Spokane.
A False Alarm.
Dr. J. A. Armstrong, provincial veterinary surgeon, passed through the
city last Monday on his way to Green'
wood to investigate another glander
scare, which had started up over there.
He was back in the city again during
the week and reports that there was
nothing in the scare, as the horse sup
posed to be afflicted with the glanders
had only a light attack of distemper and
a touch of the feyer.
WU1 Come Himself.
In the course of a conversation oyer
the wire last Wednesday between City
Clerk Johnson and Chief Engineer Tye,
of the C. P. R.,whp is now at Trail, that
gentleman said thut he would come to
Qrand Forks personally immediately after the ist of next month when tbeir
survey line us run on Main street could
be amended and that matters relative to
depot location would likely be arranged
Bad Air Claims a New Victim
at the Ironsides.
And His Mate's Life Was Dlspalred
of, AH Because They Were in
Too Much Haste.
News was brought to tho city last
Monday evening of another fatal accident which occured at noon of that day
and resulted in the loss of one more life in
the shaft on the Old Ironsides property
in Greenwood camp about 16 miles from
here, from the effects of powder smoke
and bad air in the drift at the 200 foot
Jack McCormick and a man named
Twiss, who had taken thc places left
vacant by the accident a week before
and were operating the machine drill
formerly worked by Roberts and Austin, They had set off part of a round of
holes in the drift just before dinner time
and without giving sufficient time for
the smoke to clear away went down to
set off tho balance of tbe round so the
air could bc clearing during the luncheon hour.
They were beard conversing for several moments after reaching the bottom,
and then all was still. Alter waiting
sometime with no sound or signal from
the men the engineer became worried
and sent a man down the shaft to see
what was wrong. On his arrival at the
drift the two men were found unconscious.
The rescuer lifted McCormick into
the bucket but was so badly overcome
by the gas that he could not get in himself and had to have assistance from the
surface to get himself and Twiss out.
Every possible effort was put forth to
recussitate the unfortunate men and a
doctor was summoned from Greenwood,
only a few miles away but in spite of,
everything that could be done to save
him McCormick expired a few moments
after reaching the surface and before
the arrival of the doctor,
Twiss, we learn, has been taken to the
Greenwood hospital, as has also W. J.
Pierce who was one of the rescuers of
Roberts and Austin last week. Both
Twiss and Pierce are now pronounced
out of danger and are expected to be
out again in a few days, McCormick
was buried Tuesday'at Greenwood.
J. P. Graves of the Old Ironsides was
in the city yesterday and says thc accident was due to a misunderstanding between Twiss and McCormick, each of
whom supposed the other to have turned
on the air in the shaft, which is cleared
of smoke by compressed air.
McCormick was an experienced miner
and machine man and had been foreman of the Sierra Nevada mine in the
Coeur il' Aknes under Superintendent
Williams of the Ironsides. He had
only lately come into the camp from
Republic where he had been employed
for some time past. He was between
thirty-five and forty years of age and
leaves a wife and two children who bad
been living at tbe camp with him.

change in the formation is noticed as
lhe very hard granite is gradually giv
ing way to a more limey formation.—
Midway Advance.
Prof. Cassin aud Mr. Garretson, of
Spokane, made an examination of the
Evening Star property about six miles
up thc North Foik on Tuesday of tbis
week, with a view to taking a bond on it
for Spokane parties. Nuthiug bus been
learned of the nature of their report but
it will in all probability be favorable as
the Evening Star is a fine property.
Final Payment Made,
It is reported from Greenwood that
the final payment has been ynade on tbo
bond on the B. C. mine in Summit
camp by A. H. Harrison and his associates. The amount paid was $27,000 and
was one of the largest cash payments
ever made on a property tributary to
this city. Mr. Harrison is said to have
been given an extension of time on the
final payment but was so well satisfied
with the property that he [.referred to
make the payment at once and have the
matter settled.
Mr. Harrison and his associates have
been engaged in developing this splendid property ever since lasl January and
have made it the btst developed mine
in this section. When they took hold
there was but 50 or 5o feet of shaft sunk
on the property and now ihey have over
170 feet besides several crosscuts.
Over 2,000 tons of very high grade
ore is now on the du up and much more
in sight in the mine, in fact more than
enough to pay the purchase price of
$60,000, as soon as it can be treated. It
is said that many very Mattering offers,
one of as much as halt a million ot dollars, have been refused for the mine,
and to any who have scon tbe property
there will be little difficulty in believing
that such is the case.
Work on the Little Bertha is reported
to be going steadily ahead, two shifts
being employed.
The water bas been pumped out ot
tbe shaft on tbe Goldor Crown and it is
intended to resume active operations on
that splendid property in a very short

tbe North Fork, where he is employed,
and reports a big strike of rich ore recently made on that claim.
A large body of high grade ore is re-
Eorted to have been struck nn the Oro
leuoro in Summit camp, which is being
operated under bond by Ross Thompson aud other Rossland parties,
T, I'\ Reilly, tbe Slocan mining man
has returned from a week's tour of inspection of the surrounding camps, and
expresses himself as very much pleased
by tne mineral showing of this district.

F. C, Innes a prominent Spokane min*
ing man who is largely interested in the
various camps of this neighborhood, was
in the city a day or so this week looking
after his various interests in this immediate vicinity,
J. E. Boss, of the Brooklyn and Stem-
winder mines in Greenwood camp, was
purchasing supplies in the city on Wednesday last, Joe is making this city bis
headquarters now and operates his two
big properties from this point.
Smith Curtis and A, J. McMillan of
Rossland, two of the owners of the well
known Pay ore property up the North

tbe city a couple of days this week on
business connected with the immediate
working ot the property.

On the Four Hundred.
Prof. J. R. Cassin, until recently president ot the Spokan; Business College,
and Mr. Garretson of Spokane, were in
the city this week from Nelson, Wash.,
where tbey have their headquarters
while engaged in doing development
work on the Four Hundred group of
three claims about six miles from here
on the other side of tbe line.
They have done about 125 feet of
wotk, consisting of two shafts and a
number of open cuts, and express every
confidence that they have a property
which will eventually be a mine.
A lead of fine copper-gold ore has
been shown up by the work for a distance of 600 feet and eight feet of solid
ore is reported at the bottom of the
shaft. Assays are ;aid to be very satisfactory.
The Chance of a Lifetime.
According to a late dispatch irom Victoria Messrs. Semlin, Martin (no' Jim),
and Cotton, are going to be the whole
provincial government show a.z they
have not been able to fill the different
cabinet positions, and as a consequence
are going to hold the jobs themselves
rather than trust their luck in another
election. During the past week the
three governmental "Poo Balis" have
taken charge ot their numerous offices
and for the present will run the show in
the following capacities: Hon. Chas.
Semlin, premier, minister of lands and
works and minister of agriculture; Hon.
Joseph (not Jim) Martin will be provincial secretary, minister of education and
attorney general and ilon F. C. Cotton
minister of mines and minister of finance .
Strikes us lhat a Hood roustabout
would come in handy at Victoria to run
errands and hold down the various offices while the multi-ministers dropped
around the corner to gel a "brandy and
sody in a long glaws, ya know."
And, By the Gi eat High Cockalorum
Wilgress! There's a cnance for an opportunity! Boundary creek ought to be
represented in the cabinet. Even the
rankest gerrymanderer admits that and
here's just the proper .chance. Someone from Boundary creek should have
tbe appointment of Chief Errand Runner, High Lord Roustabout and Secondary Office Holder for ^ie province, and
there is but one man in this distiict who
is capable of holding an office demanding such varied capabilities.
Who but our friend puncan|Ross, editor of the Boundary Cp-eek Times and
head push of the Boundary Creek opposition could display the implicit obedience to orders and tie varied talents
necessary for such an office ? Who but
he could have bandied eleven proxies
at one convention and voted them exactly as he was told lo do? Echo answers: "Who?" Alihest anyone else
would have had his head swelled in such
a crisis, and a cultus American like tbe
editor of the Miner would have wanted
to make a rake-off out of Ihe proposition, but not with thf Lioyal Canadian.
He had his orders before be went over
and followed thein tothe letter.
Now Semlin, here's the chance of a
lifetime for you if yon want a man to do
exactly as he is told and who is right in
the opposition class, and besides you
will be doing Boundary creek a great
favor by taking him to Victoria,
True he has no seal in tbe house, but
then we feel sure Jim Martin would be
perfectly willing to give up his seat to
tbe man who was the cause of his being
nominated; gratitude is one of Jim's
strong points.
liy all means Charlie give Dunkie the
job and do the whole country a favor.
Every Available flan and Team Is at
Work and There Is Plenty of
Koom   For More.
Later—Since the above was in type we
learn that the Lieutenant-Governor bas
laid over Joe Martin as provincial secretary and Cotton as minister of mines,
appointing J. Fred Hume, of Nelson, B
C-, to hold down their jobs.
A Daily fjeryice.
C. G. Dixon, G. P. iSf T. A. of the
Spokane Palls & Northern Railway, has
issued a circular announcing that his
line will.commencing Thursday September I, 1898, run a regular daily passenger service instead of the daily except
Sunday service now in effect. This will
be a great convenience to the travelling
public. The present time schedule will
Thursday of this week marked the
beginning of what 'is undoubtedly the
greatest step in the forward march of
progress yet taken by this city, for on
that day was begun actual work on the
contract for filling in the sloughs and
grading Bridge street and Riverside
On Wednesday last the contract was
signed by the inayor, city clerk and the
contractor, nnd on Thursday morning
bright and early work was to have been
begun, but it was found impossible to
get everything in readiness by that time
so nothing in the way of filling was done
until Thursday afternoon, when work
was actively commenced and wilt now
be pushed until fully completed.
Five teams and twenty men
are now at work and more will be put
on ae fast as they can be found,*" until
the work is completed. Wages are $2.50
per day for man, and t$ tor man and
team, to be paid in cash, and pay days
will come every otbei week, under the
terms of the contract as signed.
The contractor takes his pay in city
warrants, and puts up a bond of 50 per
cent of the full amount ol the contract.
Each week he is to be allowed an estimate on the amount of work done, of
whicb 15 per cent is to be held back by
the city to insure the faithful fu'fillment
of the contract.
Bridge street has been closed from
Riverside to First street and Riverside
from Bridge street to Main, the old government bridge over the slough on
Bridge street has been torn down and
the street will bc brought up level with
the sidewalks, and filled in for six feet
underneath them. Riverside avenue
will receive the Bame treatment and
then we will have a set of streets in the
city which would be a credit to any
town of three or four times the size of
Grand Forks, and will place us still
further ahead of our competitors in the
race to be the metropolis of the great
Boundary mining country.
When this work is completed, which
under the contract it must be by the
15th day of October next, Grand Forks
will be Ihe only city in the Boundary
countiy equipped with water works,
electric lights and splendidly graded
Contractor Cumings who has the work
in hand, has selected as his charge
d' affairs, Thos. Price, an old time contractor who has had a large experience
railroad and street work, and who has
a contract for five miles of the grading
on the proposed line of the C. P. R. between Christina lake and this citv, which
he expects to begin work upon just as
soon as he is through with tbe street
Th? earth and rock for the filling of
ths sloughs is being taken from the hillside in tbe vicinity of the brewery and
will result in the leveling of a number of
the lots thero down to the level of the
flat on the east side of the river. About
a yard and one-half of dirt is bandied at
each load, and it is estimated that each
team will make from twenty to thirty-
five round trips each day, so there is
veri* little doubt but tbat the 9,000 odd
yards needed to bring the sloughs up to
grade level will be easily filled in even
even before tbe time limit expires.
The  New Timber   Laws.
Under the provisions of Ihe timber
laws lately put in effect actual settlers
may obtain permits from the dominion
land agencies to cut from government
land, timber for tbeir own use, at the
rate of 12'A cents per cord, provided it
is dry fallen timber and is cut between
April ist and November ist. When cut
for actual use on the farm, cord wood
and rails may be obtained from dry
standing timber for I2}4 cents per
An occupant of a homestead quarter
section, under the new timber regulations, having no timber of his own suitable for the purposes required may obtain a permit to cut such quantity of
building timber, fencing or fuel as be
may require for use on the land occupied bv him, not exceeding the following: Three thousand lineal feet of
building timber, no log to be over 12
inches at the butt, excepting where the
timber is cut from dry trees, in which
case no limit is placed on the size; 400
roof poles, to be used for tbat purpose;
500 tence posts 7 feet in length and not
exceeding *; inches at ihe small end.
Tbe old regulations provided for the
homesteader's cutting 2,000 poplar
fence poles, but it was found thnt after
being used for fence poles until
thoroughly dry these polos were taken
down and used for firewood, wire fencing being so cheap that posts have boen
substituted for poles.
Stirred at Last.
At last after many protests and long,
weary, waiting the government official
who has charge of the roads in this section bas decided that the only way to
quiet the clamor for repairs to tbe road
between here and Cascade is to have
thera made, so he has appointed Jack
Carriher road superintendevt for this
vicinity and has started him to work
with three teams and seven men to fix
up the road between here and Cascade
and put it in thoroughly good condition.
The had place near the free ferry has
been widened out and work will be continued all down the line until the whole
road is in firstclass shape.
Small Debts Court.
In the small debts court held by Police
Magistrate Johnson last Friday A. C.
Sutton obtained a judgment against Tim
Townend for $100 for legal services rendered the defendant. The defendant on
a judgment summons last Tuesday was
ordered to pay $25 of the judgment by
September ist and the balance by September 18th.
Traunweiser & Fraser last Wednesday also obtained a judgment in this
court against F. A. Brown for $66 being
board bill. Immediately after judgment the case was settled.

u Notable Invent,
Mrs W E 1'axton, Youngtown,
North Dakota, writes about lier struggle to regain health after the birth of
her little girl:
" Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—It is with
pleasure that 1 add my testimony to
your list, hoping that it may induce
others to avail themselves of your valuable medicine.
"After the birth of my little girl,
three years ago, my health was very
poor. I had leucorrhoea badly, and a
terrible bearing-down pain which
gradually grew worse, until I could do
no work. Also had headache nearly
all the time, and di/.zy feelings. Menstruations were very profuse, appearing every two weeks.
" f took medicine from a good doctor,
but it seemed Ut do no good. I was
becoming alarmed over my condition,
when 1 read your advertisement in a
paper. I sent at once for a bottle of
Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and after taking two-thirds of
the bottle I felt so much better that I
send for two more. After using three
bottles i felt as strong and well as any
"I think it Is tbe best medicine for
female weakness ever advertised, and
recommend it to every lady I meet suffering from this trouble."
Maternity is a wonderful experience
and many women approach it wholly
unprepared. Childbirth under right
conditions need not terrify women.
Thc advice of Mrs. Pinkham isfreely
offered to all expectant mothers, and
hcr advice is beyond question the most
valuable to be obtained. If Mrs. 1'axton had written to Mrs. Pinkham before confinement she would have been
saved much suffering. Mrs. Pinkham's
address is Lynn, Mass.

Spokane, Aug, 22.—Plans are nearly
perfected for the entertainment of the
visiting newspaper men of the northwest
who will be in Spoknne this week.
Never before has there been such a
gathering in the history of the country.
The Oregon Press Association and the
Washington Press Association come hero
for their annual meetings. Not as an association but individually the editors of
Idaho come and before they go home they
will probably have effected the reorganization, of their association. From Montana more editors will come*, while from
liritish Columbia there will be a representative attendance of bright newspaper
Thc men who make the papers of four
slates and a province will thus be gathered together in Spokane for the three
days the session is to last. No such extensive assembly of editors was ever before attempted on the Pacilic slope.
As the visiting newspaper men and their
families come in on the trains Wednesday
evening and Thursday morning they will
be met at the depot and escorted to headquarters which will probably be established in the Symons block. There they
wil 1 register, bc given badges and be assigned to rooms.
Thursday morning at 10 o'clock business sessions of the a}3peiations will commence in the court house. The Washing-
tun asociation will meet in one of the
court rooms and the Oregon association
in another. If a meeting place is desired
by thc Idaho delegation it will be provided in the court house, close to the other
The morning business sessions will continue to noon, when adjournment will be
taken to 2. The afternoon sessions will
continue to 4 p. m. During the afternoon
there will be a musicale and reception
at the Hotel Spokane, under the auspices
of the Ladies' Matinee Musicale. for the
visiting ladies. The arrangements for this
portion of the entertainment are in the
hands of Mrs. Arthur J. tShaw, who is
arranging a delightful program.
From U to 8 o'clock p. ul. thc newspaper
people will be the guests of the Spokane

ride about the city. Story Buck, of the
general committee on arrangements, will
bc commander-in-chief of the trolley ride.
Returning from the ride all the newspaper people will assemble at the Hotel
Spokane, where a general public reception
will be tendered in the parlors, it is

Austrian   Gray   In   tlie     I.east     Fatal
Color  on   the  Battle  Field
The ideal uniform should be suitable
for the season and the place and circumstances under whieh it is worn. The color should be that which mostly resembles
that of dried grass, so that soldiers wearing it should be as little in evidence as
possible. The red and glaring uniforms
of thc British soldier of years ago has been
entirely discarded by that government,
for the reason that it too clearly indicated
the wearer to an enemy. It proved
to be the most fatal color that has yet
been devised. On the other hand, statistics prove that the Austrian gray is the
least fatal. Where seventeen soldiers
wearing the British red fell by the bullets of an enemy only seven who wore
rifle green, six and a half who wore
brown, and five who wore the Austrian
bluish-gray fell. General Robert E. Lee
who made on investigation into this matter when he was in charge of West Point,
before Ihe war of the Rebellion, made a
report in favor of gray as the color for
uniforms, nnd ever since then the cadets
at West Point have worn uniforms of
that color. It was also for this same reason that General Lee adopted the gray-
colored uniform for the Confederate army.
The crack regiments of the country, the
Seventh regiment of New York, tlie Fifth
regiment of Maryland, and others woro
gray uniforms before the war in consequence of General Lee's report. There is
no doubt that soldiers are hit in battle
according to the color of their uniform.
In the last war the union cause lost many
a thousand men who would not have been
lost had the uniform been less decided in
color. The dark blue uniforms worn by
ollicers the first two years of the war
were especially fatal, as they gave sharpshooters an easy way to distinguish ollicers. It is needless to say that the dark
blue was very generally discarded by
ollicers before thc war was over, especially
for real engagement uniform. Any color
will do for parades, practice and the like,
but when it comes to fighting that which
makes the soldier less conspicuous is the
least fatal for war. Thc new canvas uniform affords less opportunities to an
enemy than any other which has ever
been designed, and from a distance an
approaching army can hardly 'be distinguished by the naked eye, becatise tho
color is so allied to that of the dried grass
over which the army is marching.
