THE C. ]?. R. AND DONALD.
Now thnt the C.P.R. have decided
delinitely and iiually to do away with
Donald as n divisional point it becomes
a serious q-.t.stiou ns to what will be
done for those who suffer by the action
of the Company and through no fault
of the sufferers, That a townsite like
Donald. deliberately formed under
given arrangements and conditions,
should thus ha obliterated, will cause
distrust in the public mind fill to
whether soma, oilier existing townsite
of the C.P.R. may nait ho ilea It with
ia the samo way. Consequently paao-
pie will be wary in investing in town-
sites, the existence of which depends
on the will of the Company. "Wo
suggest to the Company that In their
own interest, and In tha interests of
the public, ilie.a- should deal witli those
residents of Douald who auffur hy
their station as liberally as possible.
Thin is at, least a moral duty, if not a
legal ou.. uud tho Company will he
judged a good deul in the public mind
by the course they take in regard to
the people ot Donald, We believe this
is tho first case of the kind in the history of the lme.and wo can understand
that the Company 'aro anxious to give
the matter faill and fair consideration
before coming to a decision, but that
decision should not lie delayed, because
it is now (hit the people who nre
affected want whatever consideration-
is to be given them.
The Semlin Government don't look
much like losing ground. 'The division
on the Laud Registration Atnendraoni
Bill was practically a party one. and
the Government had a majority of 7.
Wo congratulate the Semlin Government on a measure lhat th.y have introduced in the interests of labor, and
that is a bill to provide for the proper
Inspection of steam boilers. Quite a
number of raou have lost their lives in
this Province from the explosion of
imperfect, boilers.

Referring to the retirement through
disqualification cf thai members of tho
B. 0. Legislature tin Free Press says:
"Titer* is no Act on the sttittno book
at Ottawa so - strict or so jealously
guarded as tho Independence of Parliament Act, and it has been made mere
llringeut since it fans passod. Untie:-
it Mr. Corby lost his seat for West
Hasting., because ono of his clerks
ield to tho government some material
for th'* manufacture of methylated
spirits. It is easy to see that if these
tl-illing cases were hot in breach of the
Act there would be .nothing to prevent
lafge dealings, What is true ef the
Ottawa Act would be just as true of
thu British Columbia Act."
The Victoria Times says: " It 6eeiU3
very improbable that Northeast Ko.te-
nsy will waste its votes upon an opposition supporter; we do not beiievo it
will, but if it should the government
will suffer no Inconvenience. Thero is
ndt, us a Manitoba paper surmises,
any chunco of "Mr. Turner ditching
tbe government with a minority iu the
house owing to tho various resignations." The govoruuieiu are stronger
to-day than they have been at auy
time since the cabinet was formed; indications are very plain that they will
continue to gain strength steadily. A
government with a purpose���the protection of British Columbia's interests
uud tbe management of the province
on sure, well-tried lines."
Two works that are of urgent importance tire tlio construction of a
bridge, over the Columbia River at
Salmon Beds, nnd the opening of a
wagon road from that point over the
Selkirk dividb to Argents. Thin would
bring North Eastr Kootenay and West
Kootenay into direct communication
with such other, and would do much
to develop the resources cn this side of
the range, Ie has been said that the
summit of the Selkirks is toe high and
precipitous to take a practicable roud
over it, but on the other hand many
experienced mountaineers who have
como over this rdnte say it can be done
perfectly well. These works should
have the important, consideration of
the Government artd should be ns liberally provided  for as funds will allow.
AVALANCHES ill
ROGERS PASS.
TERRIBLE  TRAGEDY  OF  THE
MOUNTAINS.
EIGHT PERSONS
KILLED.
Keeper of a Snow-Shed Doad.
���Whole Family W.jpod Out.
Tuesday was a calamitous day nt
Rogers Pass, and .recorded tbo most
tragic events that have"happened ih
the history of railroading in that section of tha Rocky Mountains within
tho Dominion of Canada. > In the
morning snow-shed No. 19 wai swept
by a snow-slide into the canyon of the
Illeeillowitet. the track torn up for
some distance, und the mnn in charge
killod and his body carried goodness
knows where. It is probable that his
remains will not be found till the
wiirmth of spring melts tho mountain
snows.
Later in the day. however, a terrible
tragedy was enacted nt Rogers Pass
station. Pew.railroad men have been
better known or more highly iisteemed
by their fellows and by tho public
than "Billy" Cator, station agent and
operator at the Pass. Cator has been
stationed there lot-some years and was
a married man with two children, the
favorites of the workmen about tbo
station. Mr. nnd Mrs. Cator conducted a bom-ding heusu for tlio convenience of the railroad employes. In
their employ wero a Chinaman, anda'
young woman named Aunie Bergor,
lister of .Mrs. Fred Anderson. The
weather had been stormy nml windy,
hut in the worst of storms it was b'u-
liovod that the site of the station was
free from snow-slides, and no danger
lias baa.u known therein iho blstery of
labs railway extending uoav ovei* some
U years. Tiie mountain en the south
sirle of the truck' is steep and bare,
while that to lhn north lies at a low
gradual slope, and is the las: place
from whioh a snowslide might be expected, -f.fc nt about half-past throe
in the afternoon a torn bio avalanche,
evidently started far back ou the
mountains as the result of the stormy
weather, Swept noiselessly down the
slope opposite the station. Mr, Cater
in the station agent's office talk-
wiih  an Italian, who  was one of
apparently been engaged in cookinc
or some either work about the stove,
for h.r remains were foutid by the
pieces of the stove and the body and
clothing were badly burned.
Tho bo-lies of Cator and tbe Chinese
servant havo still lo lie recovered.
Tha mother of MissBsrger arrived at
Oolden yesterday from Illecillewaet.
The remains of Mrs. Cator ami   the
two children willbe taken for Interment
to Bowmanville. Ont. where tlio
outs of the late Mrs. Cator reside.
Much sympathy is felt at Donald for
Mr. and Mrs. Corsan, whoso sou was
tho telegraph operator nt the Pass, nud
was amongst the killed.
The reiuuius of Itigley will be sent to
Kamloops for Interment.

The report of Chief Justice McColl
on the payments for ihe Parliament
Buildings is a serious reflection on the1
Turner Government. The report read^
as follows : "The total amount pain
under thenrchitc-ci's certificates exceed**
the amount payable according to the'
terms of the contract by tho suni of
$3,928.23, irrespective of tbe siithD
forming the subj<jct of this inquiry:
The architect certified for the amount
so overpaid uniier special instruction^
of Mr. Martin as Chief Commi-fsibnet-
of Land; and Works, with full khow-
letlge on the part of both that thd
money thus overpaid had not been!
earned and in tho belief that no portioli
of it could be earned under the toil-
tract."

Name Hjiot anil Aliiaai.t Hit, Slum- Hour.
New York, Jan. 37.���At No. s:ia"i
Madison street, on Long Island, this
morning, lay tho bodies of Einil Renter, a wealthy wholesale flour merchant of Union avenue, and his wife. Iu
apparent good health they speut tho
i evening yesterday at the theatre. Af-
' terwaril they weut to a restaurant for
supper und then started for home. As
they were walking past 8'lii Madison
street Mrs. Renter gave a ery and fell
unconscious to the sidewalk. The hour
was late and the streets were deserted
so that Mr. Renter nronsed the or-cu-
pants of tlio house. Tin- stricka-n woman was taken inside and two physicians were summoned. Heart failure
they thought hart caused death.
Dazed by his sudden grief, tbo husband left the house und walked to the
home of a friend not far away. Half
nn hour later he started back with the
idea of watching by his wife's body
through the remainder of tin- night
A few feet from where Mrs. Renter
had fallen ho suddenly threw up his
hands ami went heavily to tho sidewalk. A passer-by who liiul seen him,
earned him into 880. Ho wus placed
beside the body of his wife and the
physicians were again sent for. He
was dead, and they gave it as thoir
opinion that lie had died of apoplexy
brought ou by shock. Coroner Burger
will hold an autopsy iu both cases.

hero to the effect that tho Canadian Pu-
cific Railway is to have opposition on
the Put-ilio const, that another line of
steamers is to bo placed on tlio route be-
twei-ti Vancouver, China and Japan and
Australia. The Peninsula and Oriental
Steamship company,a very strong English line, is named ns the company to
oompetu with the Canadian Pacific
railway fair Pacific business. That
company, it. is said, will place boats or,
the route within u year. Thoy have already steamers running to China, Japan
and Australia, but not from Pacillc
coast points. Officials of the Canadian
Paoiflo who live iu Toronto have heard
nothing of any sneb intention. It is
pointed out. that tlio Canadian Pacific,
Great Northern aud Nortneru Pacific,
threo great trnns-coulincntal lines.have
all steamship lines running in connection witli their terminals, und they
wonld, therefore, be Tory unlikely to
put any business in Tlio way of a competing company.

"tlust   Not    Seek   Assistance
From the Dominion.
Vancouver. Jan. 27.���The railway
committee of the provincial legislature
is inserting several conditions precedent
in all railroad charter bills. One ot
these stipulations provides that neither
Chinese or Japaneso cheup labor shall
bo employed either on construction
work on auy chartered railroad, or
subsequent working of the lines. In
defanlt,applieation may be mndo to the
supremo court by the attorney-general
for forfeiture of tho company's statutory privileges, Second condition provides that any railroad company chartered by the province, shall within six
months after passing of the act deposit
the value or |0,000 with tho finance
minister us security for tho expenditure
by 11 date fixed iu tlio net, of nt least
(10,000 in surveys or on construction
work. Failing tins tleposit, the charter
rights nre to become void, and if survey or construction expenditure lie not
dnly made, the iJo.OUO deposit of cash
or cash values, shall stand forfeited to
tho province. Lastly, it is provided
that, no proviucinlly chartered railroad
shall, after obtaining valuable privileges from British Columbia, ask subsidies and other rights from tho Dominion. If this be done, then whilst Dominion charter advantages will, of
course, be retnined, provincial privileges previously conferred nre to be
null and void.

Fraud at the Mint.
Readiug, Pa., Jan. 27.���Herman
Kretz, former superintendent of the
United States mint in Philadelphia.hus
been called on to explain the finding of
a bag filled with nails, screws and
pieces of lead iu the silver vaults at the
mint ut Philadelphia, the bag was of
the precise weight of lOii silver dollars,
the uinount of silver coin which the
weighers tit the mint supposed it to
outtiin. Thn fact that it contained
sawdust led to its close examination,
and the discovery that tho original contents had been removed.
Many of lhe North American Inalian.
were magnificent specimens of physical
manhood. This was due, largely, to their
active out-door life. Nevertheless, they
bail the wisdom tn know thnt an active life
in the open air alone, would not keep a
man healthy. They had their medicinemen, who gathered herbs from field and
forest anal brewed decoctions 10 aHsist the
natural processes of the various vital
organs.
Modem civilized men do not ns a usual
thing recognize the same necessity until it
is too late. They ignore medicine until
they are within the grasp of some serious
or nital disease. The time for a man tb lie-
gin taking medicine is when he begins to
reel out of sort*'. If n man is thoroughly
well anal healthy lit- does not feel that way.
If ha- alaaes feel'that way be may lw pretty
sure that lu- is half sick. When lie is half
sicl; it docs not take long before he is
".wholcsick," Dr. Pierce's I'.nlden Medical Discovery is the best medicine for a
man when he* Is sick or getting sick. It
puts him all right all round. It puts his
stomach tight taa begin with, nml that is tiie
most Important point. It puts his liver
right, and that is the second most Import*
ant point, Il purifies his blood nnd fills It
with the life-giving elements of the food
he eats, ant] that is the third important
point. It drives out nil disease germs and
impurities of every discriptiou. It makes
the appetite keen and hearty. It is the
greatest l.loaHl-uinker and flesh-builder. It
cures oS per cent, of nit cases of consumption, weak lungs, spitting of blood, obstinate coughs and kindred ailments. Thousands who were given up to die have testified to their recovery under this marvelous
medicine. An honest dealer will not urge
a substitute for the sake of a little extra
profit.    He gives you what you ask for.

DON CARLOS.
A\ Cam... Fienai Oasts a. Snapshot of tho
Sp-ul.h Pretend.,  and Telle Bow
He Look, and Acts.
Don Carlos Is a familiar figure among
th. eampos, eallas and canals of Venice,
says CJuries King Wood, a Philadelphia
oamerlst, In The Press of that citr.
E.ery afternoon about 4 o'clock, be
the day fair or foul, his commanding
form, accomiianled by his yonng itl.o,
. f-e Princess ot Iloban, may bn seen
crossing the Piazza or threading tbo
buiy Mercerln. he walking with great
manly strldOB and she pitter-patter witb
tiny steps, clinging to his arm as if trying
to "keep np."
The PrinooKp is sweet to look upon,
but oftentimes with a shade of sadness
in her expression. Sbe rarely ralsos hor
eyes from Ihe around as sbe walks holding contldtmtly antl proudly to her husband's strong arm with nn air at oiut
sby ond charmingly feminine.
Do.i GarloR look-, "evory lunhuklng,"
handsome, dark, taK and brond*snouloer*
ed. Familiar gossip lu Venice whispers
���torlos gallnut nf tho Irresistible Don and
maids of low aloj-reu, but If those "ales
have foundation In rcrity thoy must
surely antedate the reign of this lovely
soeond wile.
At Ihe Fenlee (the groat Venetian
theatre opened only upon spoclul occasions), the night after Christinas the
"Bohome of I'tiooinl" was sung for tho
first tlmo In Venice, and all society wos
there.
Don Carlos anil his wife often during
the evening fiat band In hand In the
most affectionate manner, evidently
entirely oblivious V> other eyes.
Ibe Pretender has beeu mugnanimous
In sparing poor .Spain u revolution and
civil strife at this, for him, must opportune hour, with tbo United States besetting ho.' from without, the riots within.
It I. confidently statod by Cnrlists that
their lea lor is both prepared nnd able at
any moment to plaoe himself upon the
throne of his fathers.
A bnlldog accompanies tbo Don in bis
dally walks. Iho boast usually contrives
to stray Into tbe shops or lose iiiroself
among tho crowds In tho Mercerla, and
then Lis royal master and mistress must
wait, or search until he Is found, the
Don whistling, -fiercely just us yon or I
might.
Il Is the custom for a gondola to meet
them at Ibe l'lazelta or at the ("Harden*
otto Reals after the promonade. Thou
with the bnlldog mounted on the i.rova,
our Interesting trionds are towed swiftly
away by twj gondoliers In blue and yellow.
Don Carlos lives In a flue old palace on
the Grand Canal, between tbe votive
Cboroh of Santa Maria delta Salute and
l'Aoadeiula, with great pall far the gondolas bearing the fleur-de-lis of the Bourbons.
Tbe coat*of-arms of the family graces
the entrance hall, where one may now
and then see flitting by the blue and
yellow of the servants ot Ihe home.
A certain state- Is keot and the royal
adherents address tbeir master as "Yonr
"Majesty" with as much fervor as If In
reality he wero thoir reigning sovereign,
"for their quality they are said to be very
Impoverished and entertain bnt little.
Bnt whom may a thronelus monarch
weloome to his nouso? Mo royal heads,
azoept perhaps an Empress Eugenie, an
Orleanltt pretender or suoh In like plight
with themselves, and commoners, of
course, are quite without tbe pale.

RAILWAY FORECLOSED.
Consternation  Anions; the Shareholders
In Montreal.
Montreal, Jan. 24.���-The Snn Life Assurance Co. of Canada, with headquarters in this city, has foreclosed upon
the property of tho Cornwall street railway, and as a consequence there is
somo consternation among Montreal
shareholders, who happen still to he
loaded with this stock. An important
judgment was handed down at Cornwall on Saturday by Chief Justice Ar-
inonr, in the matter of the action of
the foreclosure brought by J. T. Kirk-
putrick, and D. B. McLennan, Q.C., of
Cornwall, trustees for tho bondholders,
the Sun Life Assurance Co. against the
Cornwall Electric Street Railway Co.,
Ltd. The company has been in financial difficulties for some time, and were
forced to sue for the whole amount of
the bonds, $100,000, and overdue interest. The result is a judgment for the
bondholders, Chief Justice Armour at
the same time giving an order for the
nsnal decree of foreclosure, with costs.
The total claim of the Sun Life company against the property amounts to
$90,000 and interest, the par value of
the bonds being $100,000. These bonds
consist of first mortgage five per cents,
and were to run for the space of twenty
years. The whole issue was taken by
the Sun Life company. According to
the statement tho company issued in
September, 1808, the total assets
amounted to $284,056.10. The capital
stook of the company, issned and taken
up, amounted to $117,000, out of an
authorized capital of $150,000. A
large amount of this is held in Montreal
and a good portion of it is said to be in
the brokers' offices. Tho officers of the
Snn Life company state that the judgment of tho court will cut out all the
shareholders and unsecured creditors,
and that thoy will have no claim whatever upon the company. This means
that the stock will not be worth more
than the value of the paper upon which
it is engraved.

A SEVERE COLD  BRINGS A WIFE AND
MOTHER LOW.
Raw
Partial Paralysis Accompanied bv Fainting
Fir. Follow*- -Doctors Fail to Bring
R��lia*f-Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills Restore Health.
Brookholm, a suburb of Owen Sound,
is fairly vibrating with interest in tht
wonderful cures effected iu that place
by tho use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
A newspaper man of Toronto, spending
some time in tho vicinity, was directed
to a house on a hill overlooking Owen
Sound's beautiful bay, aud was told
that thero he would learn something
about a euro effected bj Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Tiie hill was climbed and
it is to Mr. 3. F. Goodt'ellow, the
genial owner and occupant of that
pleasant home, that he is indebted for
tlio following facts:���"My wife owes
her Rued measure of health today to Dr.
Williams' PiuU Pills." said Mr. Goodie-How- "On tho 12th Of July, lS()<"i,
Mrs Goodfellow went on an excursion
to Oollingwood by bout and i-aine homo
with a severu cold, which developed
into a partial or slight, attack of paralysis in tlio left side and limb. In addition, at times she would be seized
witli a dizziness which often resnlteil
in sudden and severe falls. The paralysis made her unable to lift auy
weight with iter left. hand. She called
iu medical uid nud for somo months
followed thu advice uud look tlio medicines prescribed. But it was ouly
money wasted as sho did not get any
better. As Mrs. Goodfellow lias three
children and her husband to care for it.
wns it deep trouble to the family for lier
to be so afflicted. For eight mouths
these dizzy spells aud the paralysis continued. Then some friend asked her to
try ll box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
To please tho friend she consented to
purchase a few boxes. Wben these had
been taken she felt decidedly letter.
The fainting spells came less frequent,
her strength returned to her side and
arm aud she was deilghtcd with tho
result. After taking about six boxes,
and feeling quitn well again, she discontinued tlio use of the pills for a time,
hut later felt some of the old symptoms
returning. She again procured a supply
and recommenced their use, and was
overjoyed to find thnt theso valuable
little pellets again gavo relief. She
continued taking them milil she felt
that she must certainly ho over tiie
effects of the troublo when she again
ceased to take the pills. That is over it
year and a half ago, nnd only once or
twice since has she had auy slight
symptoms of tho old trouble, and then
a few doses of tho pills would give full
relief. Mrs.Goodfellow is decidedly of
the opinion that she owes her present
health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
is most enthusiastic in her recommendation of them to her friends and acquaintances.

t Mrs, D. E. Lasalle, Canal Street, Dunn-

Dunnville, Ont., gives the following; description of Iter recent experience in the

" I took Milburn's Heart and Nerve
Pills for weak nerves, dizziness, palpitation of the heart, smothering- spells at
night and sleeplessness. Before I used
them I could not eet restful sleep, and
my nerves were often so unstrung that I
would start in alarm at the least noise,
and easily worried.
" Last February I commenced taking
this valuable medicine, and it proved the
right remedy for my weak and shattered
nervous system. Milburn's Heart and
Nerve Pills restored my nerves to a
strong and healthy condition, gave regular and normal action of the heart.
"I sleep well now, and am belter in

For a long time prior to taking Dr.
Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills my nerve
system was greatly deranged and 1 was
terribly nervous, ho much so that in my
business (Linesman of thi' Kingston
Electric Light Co.,) my extreme nervousness naturally made the following of my
business extremely hazardous. Before
taking Or. Ward's Blood ami Nerve Pills
my kidneys had been affected for some
iime. I had constant soreness and .-iiitT-
nese across my loins and Ihe small of my
back, My appetite was variablo and
very poor. I also suffered greally with
constant headaches, I am glad to be
able to inform you lliat Dr. Ward's Pills
completely etired mo of all the above
ailments and made me a well man. I
have found no medicine like Dr. Ward's
Blood and Nerve Tills, although I have
tried many different kinds, 'i'liey acted
quickly and effectually on my nerve
system, making my nerves strong and
removing all indications of nervousness.
These valuable pills also removed all
kidney and back trouble and restored to
me a healthy vigorous appetite. I have
had no headache since nvo months ago
and feel justified in saying that they are
a wonderful remedy. They not only
removed nervousness, but gave me
healthy kidneys, removed all soreness
and stlrfness from my back and loins,
cured me of headache and gave me a
good appetite, consequently I am highly
pleased, 1 know of no medicine that
equals Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve
Pills for nervousness, chronic headache,
sore kidneys and back and loss of appetite. Yours truly, John McCutcheon, 522

Cane prove, this Claim.
London, Jan. 30.���At this season,
when everybody one meets is complain
ing of "the Grip," "Backache," or
some other similar complaint, it comes
as a relief to know that there are somo
diseases from which people can free
themselves at very slight expeuse, and
scarcely any trouble.
When we find that these diseases
"have for centuries been looked upon as
incurable, and have carried hundreds
of thousands to untimely graves, we
have reason to be thankful to science
nnd its votaries, who have given us
the means to free ourselves from this
horrible nightmare of Dea-.li.
As everyone knows, Kidney Diseases
havo, until loss than ten years ago,
beeu looked upon as utterly incurable.
Hundreds of thousand! have died of
them. Until lately there was no medicine known to roan that would either
relieve or cure them.
To-day, thanks to tbe wonderful
medicine known throughout the civilized world aa Dodd's Kidney Pills,
Kidney Diseases are no more danger-
���us than a common cold.
Proof of this fact has been given by
thousands of startling cures, by Dodd's
Kidney Pills, of cases that the best
physicians had "given up."
Tlio latest evidence in this city
comes from Iir, Charles Dean, an employee at the City Hotel.
Mr. Dean suffered for three years
witb terrible paius in bis back. He
could get no relief from any of the
many medicines he used.
One day a friend advised him to try
Dodd's Kidney Pills. He did so. As
a result he is now as strong and well
as he ever was. Dodd's Kidney Pills,
he says, are worth their weight in
gold. Ho they are to victims of Kidney Disease.

THS BEAVER  SAWMILLS.
Grant Alteration.,
Great alterations are being effected
at the Beaver Sawmills, the property
of the Columbia River Lumber Company, whose headquarters are at
Golden. The mill has hitherto linen
run by water power from Quartz creek,
but it is now proposed io iialopt steam
power as being more reliable and giving a longer milling season. The mill
is under the management of Mr. G.
Higginson, who has dow been in
charge of it for 'seven years, and is one
of the best sawmill men in the west.
A now addition has been made to the
mill, giving a space of 85 feet by 14ft.
This includes a boiler house ib feet, by
33 feet, and an engine room 20 feet by
48 feet. The extension is solidly built
on piles over tlio water-way of the
Columbia rivor, 170 piles having been
drivnn to support the floor, aud bound
by 400 yards of rock. The motive
power will bo supplied bv a 350 horse
power engine uud a 50 horse power
eugine, making 400 horso power in all.
The new plant will includo steam feed,
nigger aud log roller. Fitted with
this new plant the mill will be capable
of turning out 80,000 to 90,000 feet of
sawn lumber per day. A machine
shop has also been added to the plant,
and is supplied with two large lathe.,
oue 22 feet and the other swinging 45
inches. A 12 horse power vertical
steam engine has been put in to drivu
the repairing plant. The boom is also
to be extended to afford ample storage
room for logs. During tho coming
soason the Beaver mill will take a
leading place among the lumber wills
of British Columbia.
UftfiUMNG COTTON DYES.
Special Fast Diamond Dyes for
Cotton That Will Not Wash
Out in Soapsuds.
It is absolutely impossible to get a
fast, and satisfactary color on cotton
from the samo dyes as ar. usod for
wooleu goods, anal for that reason Diamond Dyes have n a- ecinlly prepared
line of fast colors for cotton that will
give perfect satisfaction. If you want
to color cotton and mixed goods be
sure to get the fast Diamond Uvea for
cotton, as they will givo colors that
will not fade even by washing in
strong soapsuds or exposure to sun*
lighl. If any dealer trios to sell you
the same dye '.o color cotton as h.
would for coloring wool, do not accept
it, as auch dyes nre unreliable, and iu
the majority of cases will ruin the
material on which -hey are us-id.
Th.re aro some lifty different kinds
of Diamond Dyes, bo that you can got
any color that you wish. By tising
them in different strengths any desired
sliaa.e can be made, and all the fashionable colors ure readily gotten with
these dyes.
To get a faat. rich, full black, use
one of the Diamond Dye Past Blacks,
There aro three different kinds, for
wool, for cotton and mixed goods, and
for silk aud feathers. They color a
rich, full black that cannot be distinguished from new goods.
Diamond Dyes are prepared specially
for borne us., with very simplf- directions, so tbat it is but littlo trouble or
work to use them. A direction hook

MOBERLY SAWMILL  BURNED.
On Thursday night a large firo was seen
in the vicinity of Moberly and the conclusion
was at once arrived that the Moberly sawmill
was on fire. The surmise proved correct.
The mill was the property of the Columbia
River Lumber Co. The plant consisted of
two portable engines, and a large saw bench
and was used to cut ties aud lumber to meet
winter requirements not iu stock. The lire
originated in the engine room from somo unknown cause. The plant was uninsured, so
that the Company was a luser to the value
thereof. Mr. Bubar went out tills morning
to ascertain the state of things. The mishap
will throw a number of men out of work as

Mr. Eberts made the extraordinary

if an important witness-, Mr. Soues, a
