Ei.itor Era :
S,r,-I w:ould like to call attention
through yen: columns to a thing muoh
needed ill Gold*., viz., an association
o. the merchant*, who, if they were
organised, .might prepare some scheme
ts] combat tl.e tendency of the residents
of this town lo spend their money for
the benefit of outside places. We have
three general stores that carry as large
stocks as are carried in many towns uf
(i.'C times tl.e size ot Golden, two drug
and notion stores, two tailors, a jewel-
. ler and n leather goods store, which can
readily supply all the goods needed in
town. Yet in tho (ace of all these we
Und that many of our leading citizens
make it a rule to send their money oul
of town for good's that the local mer
c'ibiiH could Supply, aud which, il not
in stook at the time, could'be procured
i n lime lo fill the order. '.Pile benefit of
dealing in town would be tell by everyone. The money sent away each year
runs away up into the thousands.
Take for clothing alone. If une hun-
dren suits are ordered, snd this is a low
estimate, that is $2,500sent out, which
would mean that th* shops here would
have lo double their staffs it the order
wus made up in town, aud the increase
in this line is only illustrative of the
On t he other hnnd these outside firms
never contribute one cent (or the good
o( the town. When the lire engine
was purchased, largely by public subscription, none ot the retail firms out-
aide tho town contributed one dollar,
but the local firms all put up. It is.
tl.e same with any local subscription
list. The townspeople lire expeced to
give liberally, and then to stand by and
see the very ones who solicit subsciiji*
lions go beyond the local dealers when
tliey have c.sh to s|>ind.
Let the merchants get together and
devise some jilan to stop this drain on

Tne Boat Race.
ElilTOR Eras
Sir, ���Wo note with some interest tl.e
challenge thrown out by " Steamboat
Man,'' iu your issue of Muy 114, uud
though it may aeem a hold one at tirst
sight, yet when you consider a steamboat race for one mile it is indeed a
very small affair. I do not think it
would 1st a fair test ut nil of either
bouts. Why, if two men weut out (or
a race in a canoe or a dugout tliey
would not think of doing less than a
mile, and usually that distance and
return, And yet Steamboat Man suggests getting up steam, tunning boata
with judges, etc , till for a mile race,

A Brave Resistance bv tho l"toer.
London, Mar 81 Lord Kitchener
report, to the War Offlce. under date
of Pretoria. May 80, as follows: "Gen.
Dixon's force at Viadfontein was at
tacksd yesterday by Deldrey's force,
and there was severe fighting.
''The enemy was eventually driven
off with heavy loss, leaving 35 dead.
'���I regret that our casualties aleo
were severe. The killed and wounded
numbered one hundred and seventy-
"Four officers were killed "
London, May 81.���On the anniver*
ssry of LordRoberts'entry Into Johannesburg comes new* of severe fighting
and heavy losses within forty miles of
the Gold Reef City. The battle at
Viadfontein, on the Durban Johannes
burg Railway, reported by Lord Kit
chener today, is the most serious engagement since General Clement's
reverse at Magaliesburg. The garrison
of Viadfontein, apparently largely
oompoBed of yeomanry, had 174 men
put out of action. That their assailants
came to close quarters and suffered
heavily is shown by the number of
dead left on the field.
London, June 1.���Lord Kitchener's
account of the* cattle of Viadfontein
serves to light up the publio interest
once more in the Boer war Two fads
stand out. First the determined nature
of the Boer cssttlt upon an entrenched
position, oil miles from jQhannesburg|
and secondly the heavy losses suffered
by both sides. This has been the first
real engagement fought for mauy
months and ia decisive proof that the
Boers, led by a cool wary general, like
Delarey, can still offer a strenuous
resistance to the Britisli arms. The
details of ibis buttle may indicate that
the British foice was surprised and
the casualty list ran up to 174 in this
way, but the Boers, iu any event were
Ihe assailants and were not repulsed
with severe losses. The Boers are also
reported to have fought with exception
si gallantry while iu pursuit of General
Humor's convoy.
The natural explanation of tl.e fight
ing is that one .nine after another ia
opening iu the rand ami refugees are
returning to Johannesburg iu small
groups, and the Boers are making de*
M|se.'sstu efforts lo frighten Ihem and
prevent a resumption of industry in
thO guld belt. Viadfontein was pro-
balsly designed to Ise aloud warning to
the refugees that lhe war bad not end
ded i.uil that Johannesburg was stil
au unsafe place of lesidenee. A Bri

The happiness of home life depensf*
largely on the health of the wife and
mother. When her strength is unequal
to the daily cares and duties of home,
the evening hour finds her utterly worn
out, too tired to talk, too weary to read.
At first even she is glad to have her
husband go out for the evening, She
want, rest and tjuiet at any price. And
.o the foundation for marital misery Is
often laid in ill-health.
But when the housewife 1. healthy
and strong she finds in her day'* duties
only a sufficient outlet for her energy.
She looks forward all day to the evening
hour spent with her husband over *
book, or pawed in quiet conversation.
And every evening so spent draws the
wife nearer to the husband and knits
together the twain who are "one flesh "
In the higher unity of one mind.
Every woman should know thst th*
general health depends on the local
womanly health. Irregularity, weakening drains, inflammation, ulceration and
female weakness are disorders whicli np
the woman's strength nnd destroy her
happiness with her health.
In ninety-eight cases in every hundred
the um of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription will effef a complete cure of
womanly diseases. It is a reliable regulator. It driea the drains which enfeeble
women. It heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. //
makes weak women strong and sick
women well.
Sick and ailing women are invited to
consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. AU'
correspondence is held as sacredly confidential and womanly confidences are

The ssddest trsgsdv that sver occurred in this valley wss- the one whioh

Prank Laseelles, Thunder Hill, on the
morning of Wednesday, May 29th,
when that yonng man, laboring under
the delusion that somsons wss outside
the bouss wsntlng to force sn entrance,
sbot snd Instsntly killed bis Chinese
cook, thereby rendering hi* Ufa forfeit
to the law, or at anv rata forfeiting
that sweetest of all boon*-liberty.
Ths unfortunate gsntlsman hss been
noted for hi* eccentrioities. one of which
wss strongly shown In ths selection of
a site for his residence, whioh wss two
miles from the wsgon rosd to Fort
Steele snd over eight from bie nearest
For some tim* psst hs ba* been
brooding oyer a fancied insult to him
in connection with being called to give
evidence in Magistrate Scovll's court in
a' ditpnie over s horse. Since that
time be has bsen muoh unsettled and
cm Tuesday'afternoon be took his sad*
dis borseand wsnt but riding. After
the usual supper hour he returned to
tbe houss*without his horss snd witb
no cost on and expressed a desire to be
let alone, as he. wss not feeling well.
In Ihe houss with him there lived John
Lambert, Fred Kimpton and two
Chinese Servants. Of the latter ohe*
was named Muck Lum, a cook, who
wat ths victim of ot the tragedy. He
was well thought ol by his employer.
After retiring on Tuesday night he
found himself unable to sleep and requested Lambert to lit up with him,
and for a. time acted in a very irrational 'ttlanner, but apparently there
came io the surface of hia mind a glim-
- Mer of hia usual gentlemanly manners
' and. ft* ty.ld L isnbert it waa all foolishness lo keep'Hi is. out of lied, and told
..   his to go to sleep.
Lambert was 'awakened in tl.e gray

Lsin'sert vol out as quickly hh possible,
and after looklug round the premises
���nd s'-eiug no one. heard a shot fired,
and saw one'of the' Chineso aervanii*
. running with clothes in . his hand.
Finding from thia Chinaman Kimpton
was all right and gelling nothing further from hiin Lambert at, once atruck
ftot theeamp of two men who were
f ncing an outlying part of Lascelle's
In the meantime Kimpton lolls ol
how he stood in a* room across a hall
��������� from th* maniac, and unable *to shut
:. the door or get, to the window, stood
aud hsard the shot fired from a Shot
gob; at a distance of twib* feet,: into the
Chinaman's brain, and ot the language
' used by Laacelle. t'oths now inanimate
form of hi* fancied fos.   Kimpton then
���bade good his escspe In'scanty raiment, and after dressing made bis wsy
to the nearest neighbor, Mr. Bulmsn,
where < lis told  of * tbs terrible  deed,
',' snd securing a.hor���� rod*, to Winder ���
mere..and gave  information   to the.
offloen of the law.
Thj>' other Chinaman pnrcba.ed s

brandishing: *��� loaded Wlnohasttr,
whioh osusstd a general desire .of "sb>
sane* of body* to lis Shewn by*the
oconpantt of the rig. Officer Cameron,

lss and disarmed him and placed him
'��� !.��n.*-M'.MlMo to Bulmsn's for ths
night snd spent it raving and in ths
morplng vfs"hronght tb Athalmer jail
and tK*r* lodged. Ths Inquest wss
held Wednssilay morning and a full

Duohei. back to Windermere stones
taking with lilm Mr. T. O'Brien and

a correspondent of the Era. As speed
was a great contideration no freight
wss carried and sll intsnding passengers were notified to be on board at 8
p. m. Ths run ws*' made up t he
Columbia by moonlight and before
uoon Athalmer was reached r.nd after
a consultation with Dr Elliot Mr.
Griffith who was in Windermere ordered Laseelles to be removed to Oolden
st once, Dr Elliot accompanying him
on the journsy ss msdical attendant.
The return trip was delayed by Dr Elliot having to arrange his, business to
permit of ths trip but a start was made
from Peterboro, landing about li p. m.
The staff of the Duchess having been
on duty for twenty four hour* continuously it Was impossible to run sll night
so a stop wss msde at McKays isnding
for the night,
Mr Laseelles pstsed s restless night
in spits of tb* effort* mads by Dr.
Elliott to indues sleep by mean* of
opiate*. The Dr. remained up the
greater part of the night with him and
shortly after breakfast was rewarded
by seeing his patient fsll asleep.
On hi* arrival at Golden an examination of Mr. Laseelles was made by
Dr Elliot and Taylor and a certificate
of insanity was signed by tbem, snd a
commitment to the Insane Asylum at
New Westminster wss made. Too
much praise cannot be given to Mr.
O'Brien of the energetic manner in
which arranged matters in order that
Mr Laseelles need not suffer confinement in the jails ot the distriot which
have no proper accomodation for those
who are suffering from tlie suspension
of their mental faculties, which state
of affairs makes It necessary, in cases
where restraint is needful to treat such
unfortunates ns criminals.
Dr. Elljol, also was unremitting in
his attentfons to his patient and spared
���to effort on his behalf!
The Inquest on the viotim of the
Thunder.'Hill tragedy wits held on
Wednesday evening May 29th at Mr.
Bulman's, Thunder Hill, when Coroner
Elliot empanelled the followii'g jury:

and asked who opened tl.e door. He got

would count 5 and if be got no answer
he would shoot the first s��� of a b���

pantry. T oould not see whether he or
the Chinaman opened the door. He
then shot. I saw him shoot. I was

that he would be all right in the morning, na lie was only a little nervoua.
After 1 had sat,.a little longer he said
it was foolishnesa to keep me out of

ss I went out hs said: "For God aake,
Jaok, do you think this is D. T.s"   I
said:  .'-No, I hope  not."   He  then
caught me by the shoulder and said
"For God sake don't, leave me, Jaok.
I went and laid down on my bed withont taking my clothes Off, and slept to
gray daylight,   Wss awakened hy him
oalling "Jack! it is daylight, I only
thought it was 12 o'clock."'   He went
ontdoors and. came in again and went
to bed aS I (nought.   I did not sleep
any  more.   About 3:30 I heard him
calling to tome imaginary person outside the house.   He kept on oalling lo
them and apparently getting excited,
soreaming iu all styles and manners.
I did not hear him mention any names.
I heard him say he would like to be
lawyer as they conld do as they
liked with people.   Then he ssld he
would count 25 and shoot at the end
of the counting,    He started to count
and got as far as nine and quit and
said "I will give you a-of))-s tho
chance to start at five again.     He
started at six next time and said he

Kimpton opened a door and went out,
I got  up and   went out and   walked
round to the front of the house to see
if ihere was anyone   there so as to
warn them. I saw no one. Itlienwent
towards w. o. and heard a gun go off.
Thought it was fired from a front window   or door.   I   went  down behind
stable to  see if  I could  see any one.
Saw no one. Came back onto the road
again aud saw a Chinaman running
out partly dressed with shoes in one
hand and pants in the oilier.    I asked
him what had happened.   He said "No
savey."    Saw    someone  coming   un
through1 the field and supposed it was
the other Chinaman.   I asked the first
Chinaman if F. Kimpton was all right
und he  said  "Yes.  he get away*.   I
then  went  to Ulsen's camp and saw
them   and advised   one of them to-go
down as he knew Laseelles better than
I did.   While I  whs there Mr. Johns
cams'  over from   Bulmiiu's and   said
Liisc��lles had killed a' Chinaman slid
then I came over here to Bulman's.

Laseelles, am fencing part of his larm,
was in camp on Wednesday morning.
Mr Lambert came and told us to go
down to Laseelles as be was not all
right, We got breakfast. Mr John then
then oame and told us a Chinaman had
been killed.   We got down to Lascelle's
about 11 o'clock, found the Chinaman
waa dead and blood upon the Door.
Mr. Laseelles was not there; I thought
perhaps he had committed suicide. I
have been with Laseelles since May "th
1900. Always thought him to he not
altogether there.
J. W. Ulsten, sworn.���I have about
one year with Laseelles, was fencing
when Mr John told me that a Chinaman was killed. Went down to house
about 11 and a Chinaman had been
shot and was dead and blood all round
on the floor.
Thia completed the evidence snd the
jury then retired and after a short
time returned the following verdict :
"Having exsmined the body we the
jury hereby agree that Muck Lum
came by his death by a gunshot wound
at the bands of Mr. F. Laseelles and
we are of an opinion that Mr. Lascellea
was of unsound mind at the time.
