The B.C. Mining Record for October
has the following to sav of East
Kootenay : "In East Kootenay valuable discoveries have been made chiefly
in tow grade ores, and the district, as
soon as transportation facilities are
secured, will be one of the most active
in mining operations and satisfactory
in results ol any in British Columbia.
What is needed, and what is keeping
East Kootenay back is the lack of
capital to work the mines. There are
low grade mines in Alaska���where the
ore ia not nearly so valuable as that of
East Kootenay���which are paying the
companies operating them immense
dividends. The mining of low glade
ore in largo lodes is more permanent in
character than that of high grades,
which are generally found in small
lodes, and in this respect East Kootenay has un advantage ever other
''The Canadian Pacific Railway is
the natural outlet for East Kootenay,

where thc Government should aid a

that of East Kootenay, where millions
of dollurs are lying dormant awaiting

Seattle, Sept, 27.--'The greatest
mining boom ever seen is bound to,
visit America in the near future,'' said.
William Woodruff, of Chicago, at the.
Occidental lust evening, Mr. Woodruff has come to the coast to look into,
some mining interests for himself and,
Other Chicago capitalists. ''The fact
is," continued he, "that there are net,
other kinds of business to. go into,,
with a prospect of making money, and:
you will see everybody turning their'
attention tp mining, In the great
European cities the boom is already on,

bought what they had to have, and
the three yeurs of inactivity have left

that times arc as had as ever and will
be until a change of administration.
Money is really hard to get, and as 1
said before the general poor prospects
are going to drive nil of the money

SATURDAY, OCT. 5,  1895.
"You are undoubtedly correct," said
Dr. Bell. "I havo susjiected it from
the first."
������I never heard of it," exclaimed Dr.
Robertson.    "What is it?"
"A new poison," responded Preble.
'���It was described in lust .Sunday's
��� Globe.' The chemist who discovered
it is said to have experimented with it
upon animals. The sensations which
accompany death from it are so intensely agreeable as to produce u
recognizable effect even upon tho faces
of dumb brutes. The story was that
one of the doctor's assistants had com
milted suicide witli it; ami it was that
case which gave the only knowledge
winch the world bus of its effect upon
human beings. It absolutely detiics
detection l.y analysis, nnd the odor
nud the remarkable expression upon
the face nf the dead are the only means
by iviiiirh it mnj be detected."
"You don't mail- to say that such a
poison us lhat wns described iu it
newspaper," exclaimed the coroner.
������It's method of preparation wits
only hinted at," replied Preble. "But
the hint was very broad. 1 wns able
to make it."
'���What! You have actually prepared this substance?"
"I have; and I will tell you that it
is done simply by dissolving one of the
now synthetic medicines���sold almost
without restriction in every drug store
���in chloroform. I should judge that
a drop of it mixed with the i/iiiu on a
postage stump would kill a man in
about ten seconds."
"But could this girl make it?" demanded the coroner.
"Anybodycan make it," replied Preble. "The article in tbe paper was a
mere riddle. It did not require a
ohethist, but only a good guesser, to
solve it."
"Hut   her   letter," I objected, "hns

The policeman stepped aside and thc
young woman entered. I cuugbt only
a glimi.se of her us she hurried by ine
toward tho opposite side of the room
where her uncle's body had been laid
upon some chairs placed side by side.
Her face possessed the element of
beauty, but wus disfigured bv excessive leanness and the lines of cure.
Without a moment's hesitation she
removed the handkerchief which had
been laid upon his faco. Sho satisfied
herself that ho was dead by exactly
the same means that Dr. Bell had employed, and apparently with the same
technical skill.
"What was the cause of death?"
she asked, turning to Bell and Robertson, who stood sido by side.
It wus evident that she knew at a
glance that they were physicians.
"You should be able to answer that
question," said the coroner. "You
seem to have hud medical training."
"I have," she reylied. "My father
was a physician, and I studied with
him for years. But I do not sec any
indication here. If he has been murdered, the poison is one with which I
am not familiar."
"It is a new poison," said Preble,
striking in. "I will show you a de-
S'liption of it presently for I have
r-out for a paper containing it."
The girl seemed lo be bewildered
under our eyes. We all stared ut her,
nud for myself I will admit that her
confession of a medical training had
removed my prejudice in her favor. I
believed that she had learned the
nature of her uncle's will, and had
seat the poisoned stamp.
"You show no grief," said thc coroner, us if the words cume without his

"Very well," she said; "I will au-
swer you."
Shu opened ii well-worn purse, and
drew from it a scrap of paper, which
she gavo to the detective. It wus u
clipping from a newspaper. Preble
started when he saw it. I wus near
enough lo look over his shoulder and
my curiosity compelled me lo do it.
The first word I saw on the paper
wns gelolhuniu. The clipping contained the principal part of the description of that poison.
My mind wus made up. The girl
was mud. I expected Unit her next

be essential in the case."
The coroner looked at It.
���'I don't see anything but some advertisements of work for women," he
said.    "One of tbem is marked."
"Turn it over," said Preble.
Dr. Robertson did so, and he positively gas-jed with astonishment.
"Gentlemen," said Preble, "I want
to ask you a question. "What does a
man do about ten seconds before he
licks a postuge stamp?"
We stared at one another, unable to
understand what he meant.
"The article says," continued the
detective, "that   this poison works in
"This clipping was a bold stroke.
The murderer knew Miss Brand's
poverty and that she was trying to
get work. It happened that tbo description of the poison was backed by
some advertisement!, of work for
women. What a great discovery.
The murderer cut it out; he marked
one of the advertisements, and mailed
tbe clipping io Miss Brand. Did you
not receive it in that way?"
Miss Brand replied in the affirmative.
"Have you the letter that accompanied it?"
"No, I was told to destroy it.     The
about   ten   seconds.   It   produces no I letter   suid there were reasons.     The
puinful effect at fust; indeed, tp the
best of ray knowledge, it is not perceived except by reason of its tuste,
which is iigreoiililc. But at the end of
that interval the victim dies.
"Now you are all firmly persuaded
that thut postage stamp killed Mr.
Brand, because it wns lound upon his
tongue. But isn't that evidence that
it did not kill him? Does a man hold
a stamp in his mouth ten seconds?
Certainly not.
Imiigiue yourselves in his position.
He bus finished bis letter and directed
tlio envelope. He seals the envelope,
and abo.it 10 seconds later be wets the
stump. In view of these facts, I say
it was tho envelope that killed him,
and not the stamp."
There was silence for a moment.
Then tho coroner suid:
"Your reasoning seems good, Mr.
Preble, but where does it lead? What
is your theory of tlie case?"
"Several facts are obvious," replied
the detective. "In the first place,
somebody has been stoppiug Miss
Brand's letters to her uncle. The lust
letter was held four o..ys, und meanwhile it was opened us nn examination of the envelope will prove."
"That's true," said Dr. Robertson,
alter looking closely nt thc envelope;
"but I'm still iu ihe dark. Your
theory is, of .course, that tlie criminal
held the letters in order to separate
Miss Brand from her uncle. Wheu he
found a stump iu one of the letters this
infernal plot came to him. But why
didn't he poison the stump?"
"Do yon find uny stamps on Mr
Brand's desk?" usked Preble.
"Yes. here ure several'. They seem
to have been enclosed iu tho letters hc
opened this morning."
"Exactly. Now are you sure that
the one lie used wus thut which was iu
his neicc's letter?"
'���Why, no; thnt can hardly be
"Of course not; and the murderer
foresaw it. If he hud poisoned lhe
stamp, he would not have been sure
thut Mr. Brand would use it ut the
right time. It might have lain upon
bis desk for days; it might have been
lost or given to somebody else. Whatever stum,. Mr. Brand used was sure
to seem to be the one his neice sent
Now, see if you can find un unused
envelope on thut desk."
Robertson and Bell searched, but
without avail.
"Now there's n certainty," suid Preble, with evident satisfaction.    "The
| murderer  didn't  go upou guesswork.
He knew that Mr.   Hi uud would write
that letter before he ut tended to any

He could not refuse to give it up, for
all the clerks knew that he had it.
By this time we all saw how the
current was setting, and we were not
surprised when Preble continued:

sent me tbe clipping, nnd I was enraged. Yet T though! it best to follow
the direction of the write:'. The letter
also told mo to come to the city to-day

"This is a wild story which yon
have put iuto her mouth," cried Harold Brand.
"I have something to back it,'' responded Preble. 'This paper from
which thc description of the poison
was cut was found in one of the great
bags used for the collection of waste
paper in the building where you live,
Mr. Brand. The first thing I did on

lips. ' "Whut do I gain by my uncle's

Thu l.urrniit Murder Trial,
Sun Francisco, Oct. 1 -After gathering up a fow ragged ends of testimony
which were left over from lust week
the defence in the Durriiiit case this
morning bsgun the building up of an
alibi for the young medical student
from April 4th to 12th inclusive. Tbe
purpose of the alibi is to impeach the
testimony of the pawnbroker, Oppen-
lieim, und W. J. Phillips, who testi-
ti'rl that some time between April ilrd
and April 12th Durrant tried to pawn
Blanche Lament's ring at Oppenbom's
store. During the course of the testimony which covered Durrant's movements on April 4th and 5th, a struggle
was precipitated by District-Attorney
Barnes, who challenged the reliability
of the roll call book ut Cooper College.
The argument ended in a victory for
tho defence fo fur as tbe question before tho Court was concerned and
Judge Murphy sustained the objection
to the question propounded by himself
to the witness and cut off the discussion.
The trial began this morning with a
sensation which wns quite as unexpected to the prosecution us to the defence
Juror I. J. Truman informed the
Court that lust Thursday, during the
noon recess of tho Court, he was ap
proucbed by H J. McCoy, tlie Genera
Secretary of the Young Men's Chris'
tiun Association, who endeavored to
engage bim in conversation on tbo subject of the trial, " If you don't hang
Durrant," said McCoy to the juror,
'��� we will hung you." The Court snid
that the offence bordered strongly on a
crime and cited McCoy to appear in
Court on Oct. ilrd and show cause why
he should not be punished fur contempt.
The defence called to the stand four
witnesses by whom it was proposed to
test tlie accuracy of the pawnbroker's
memory. Marvin Curtis, William
Cat heart, P. J. Neiimnn, and Leonard
Everett, members of the National
Guard and the Signal Corps, to which
Durrant belonged, testified that the*
hnd tnken various articles of jewelry
to Oppcnheim'K store and attempted to
pawn them. They described the man*
ner in which they were dressed ai the
time. The descriptions in many instances did not correspond witli the
descriptions given by Oppenheiiu when
lie was usked how the men wbo tried
to pawn the articles wero dressed.
Each of thu four witnesses suid thut
hc hnd subscribed money to assist in
the defence of Durraiit.
