therefore give duly the testimony ol

GeoJWoods, waiter-I heard O'Brien,
who wla* standing in the centre of the

tbe oamp wauling to fight him he waa
ready. About 6 o'olock I rang the
bell for eu|.|,er. Burdette oame in aod

to see what it -as and saw the cook
put hll hand on Burdette's shouller
aud I walked up to sse what the trouble
wae, I saw two apples fly pail Bur
delta knd the cook and another hit the
table. I looked and saw O'Brien iii the
position as 11 he had thrown the apples
but will not swear that he did eo, but
there was no one else on the other side
of he table. I followed Burdette and
O'Brien did tha same. O'Brien said,
���'What did vou throw the apple in my
face for,* and atked Burdette if he
wanted to .scrap, but Burdette said
othlag. O'Brien asked Burdette to
look bim in ibe face snd then struck
bim in the back oi tlte neck uud also
on tb, forehead Burdette turned hi-
baok .to O'Brien to go out when hr
waa knocked down between. the two
tables. O'Brien tell ou hiin and turned
and kicked him twice in ihefaCe. Hur
detlo tried to raise himself u;i and the
gentle "peacemaker* jumped uu hisrili**:
The oook pulled him off. I helped
Bursletie up and sold hiin to clear out
He went-round to ond citable arid laid
If O'Brien came near hiin he woulsl

at him but I did nut iee * knife. I
heard the took tay he had a knife. I
looked over my shoulder arid taw the
cook In tb* act of striking with a
stove-wood itlok. I went to the door
to get a club and a man named Erick

When llie chill hand of winter to a
certain extant relaxes in tbe mountains,
i hs season ot snow anil mud slides
commences. Those who have travelled up ansl down the C. P. R. from
Donald to Kamloops during lho early
spring fully realize the ('.anger, wiih
its inherent spice of adventure, that
those omployed ou a mountain railway
rather enjoy than fear. And it is of
thia time of the year, in lho spring of
1887, I will tell a story, ouly ouo of
many, showing the fearlessness and
manhood ot him whom thousand! in
the provineo were proud to call friend
���"Father Pat,"
The spring of the Jubilee year was
masked by more than un ordinary
number of slow slides, and everyone,
on tlio eastern slopes of the Rockies
patticulatly, had more than enough to
du. Offices, roundhouses and freight
sheds weie emptied, and all hands were
more than tired of shovjlliug snow.
Thore had been a big slide just west oi
Bear creek which, after some 18 hours
oi hard work, was oily half remov-id,
when, without a uiiouie's notice, down
ruined another along the sains avalanche clear.il elope of the mountain
side, partly filling thu cutting. A
large gang of Italians were working at
the west end, and a ruu wus'inado for
a.,feiy. But three men wero too late,
When their fellow-workmen rammed
nolhiug was seen but another immense
mound of snow, yei nil knew that
somewhere underneath it were three
human lives slowly ilicki-riiig away to
bo quenched with the Inst spasm of
suffocation. Many wont to work and
the snow flew as it rarely flies eveu
undor the pressure of "clearing the
road," ll look au hour to liberate the
three, but a spark of life still remained
Tl.e Italians, unaccustomed to the
effects of physical exhaustion, gavo
their fellows up for lost, and gathered
round them will, many exjiiessious of
sorrow, A few of the mure religious
took their irosarie',' aud kneeling beside the track, commenced telling their
beads and' praying for the departed
souls of iheir countrymen.
But Father Tat was near, as always
at tho scene of trouble. He ha-1 been
detained by the slide, cojjiii, from the
ws-at, and knuw that the Only- chance
to save the three was to get ihem to
hoapital al Donald. The slide intervened, he did not know for what distance us ihu fresh snow might have
piled up ti.e eastern end also, but he
did know that over Abut slide was an'
engine uud that- ui.ee ou il a half hour's
tun would carry liioj*. "daKocs" to
uiedital assistance.
He believed in lha gospel of actiqu.
Getting ono hoisted on his shoulders he
started acro.��s the slide. It was ouly
some 300 yards, but ivory yard was in
danger. Another alida might couie
down at any time, perhaps of mud,
when his chance ior life would bo very
silini, if not an imjiosnbility. But'
with hii athleiio frame and a life in
danger, Father Pat wai capable of
almost anything. It took him half an
hour to get the lirst one over, when we
at the other end recognized his form
and went out to meet him. Ilia bur-
was soon relieved and many volunteer

any ussistauce with'a cheery ''Thai's

tbe boys all dived pretty deep for it.

One el the sights ol the Bonspiel
wis the fearsome coat worn hy one of

'���It could speak for itseil." By the
way, when the gentleman nloresai

his drasvs and guards were well worth
