On The Big HI11-.Another Runaway
Traln-El.ht Oars Smashed to
On Monday morning a freight train
followed No. 1 express from Laggan
down the big hill towards Field.
Shortly after leaving the top of the
hill the train broke away and as all
efforts to hold her back became unavailing and a wreck was inevitable
the driver, fireman, brakemen and conductor jumped from the train, all escaping without injury except the
driver, who had one ot his arms badly bruised. The train consisted of 15
cars, and was hauled by consolidated
engine 314. The train was in oharge
of Conductor Jamieson,Drlver Fawcett
was in charge ot the engine and the
fireman was Chapeau, who was also
fireman on tbe train whioh was wrecked in the Kioking Horse at the same
time and ou the same day a week pre-
viously. After the mon left the train
they heard the engine working hard
against the load behind, tho driver
having reversed the lever and opened
the throttle before he left her. At the
safety switch four mites from Field
the tender and engine appear to have
run on the safety switch all right, but
the shock seems to have thrown out
the switch and the cars were carried
on the main line. The engine tore up
the largd rails, bending them like so
much wire, and both engine and tender toppled over in tho ditch between
the main line and safety switch, the
working ot the engine tearing up the
trackway. The first eight cars next
the engine were smashed to pieces and
their contents strewn around. The
ninth car was off the track but the
rest of the train was uninjured. Engines were got from Laggan and Field
and the wreckage pulled clear of the
main read bed and burned. By midnight the track was cleared sufficiently to allow a side line to be connected
and su No.2was enabled to get through
with about five hours delay and No. 1
got through on time next morning.
Sheriff.* Shot by u Stugo Bobber.
Delta, Cal., Ootober 14.-William
Harold and Under Sheriff Radford of
Slskyou County, were shot and killed,
and Deputy Sheriff Stewart seriously
wounded while the officers were attempting to arrest Harold for com'
plioity in the robbery of the Yreka and
Fort Jones stage. The stolen money
was traced by Detectives Thaoker and
J. Jennings, of the Wells-Forgo and
Company, to this place, and the Slskyou County officers, in accordance
with instructions, came down from
Yreka last night.for the purpose of arresting Harold. About 8.80th Is morning
Radford and Stewart presented themselves at Harold's house and asked
for him. When he came to the door
Stewart said: "I want to see you,
Harold." The latter replied ''I'm
ready," and opened fire on the officers
with a revolver. The first shoe took
effect in Stewart's leg, while the
second bullet struck Radford in the
left breast, killing him almost instantly. Stewart, who had fallen in
front of the door, emptied his gun at
Harold, who fell mortally wounded,
with several bullet holes In his ohest
and abdomen. He died soon afterwards.
A Dangerous Character
On Wednesday night a man named
J. Vandell assaulted a woman named
Lucille Langie. Next morning the
woman laid an information against
him and in the absence of Constable
Cox F. C. Lang set out to arrest the
offender. Vandell had, however, made
himself scarce, and W. C. Miller was
despatched in searoh of him, finding
him at McLaughlin's camp, where he
had been drinking. The acoused was
brought into town and wauled bail.
Mr. Warren J. P. was sent for aud
was about to go uptown lo see the
psrtiss whose names the prisoner gave
as his Sureties, when the prisoner
wanted lo go too, and laid he wae not
gelng to be goaled by them. The
prisoner then set upon Messrs. {.ang
and Warren, hitting, kicking and
scratching. Mr. Lang had to use his
bacon And pluckily stuok to the man',
enoeeedlng in lodging him back In the
cells but not nntil he had bruised Mr.
Warren about the body and had cot
Mr Lang badly about the neck and
face. Dr. Taylor had to bo called in
to attend the injuries sustained by
both Mr. Lang and the prisoner. The
Gold Commissioner was telegraphed
lor this morning and on his arrival
Vandell will be brought up for punishment. Thie Is the man who oleaned
out the town last Christmas. Suoh
characters are not wanted in this
country and we hops that the court
will make en example of hlm by imposing tbe lull penalty of the law. A
repetition ol tbls sort ot thing must
be stopped at all hssards.

getting tired of holding their stocks
pressed sales, and from day to day
lower quotations were established until on the Uth inst, transactions in
round quantities were reported at 4c.
New York, at which prices there remain further sellers. This is quite
a material drop, and at the time ot
writing it is difficult to judge if the
bottom has already been reached.

The Hon. Colonel Baker, in acknowledging the petition from Golden
re the proposed wagon road to the
Tukon, describes it as a "soheme for
railway," Now the people of Golden
made no such big order, and tbe gallant Colonel should look after the interests of his constituents better than
to misinterpret their requests. The
order for .a road over tbe "Golden
Era air Une" is considered by some
people a big order. What would they
say if we had been so bold and Impracticable ae to demand a railway
from the Provincial Government?
There have been some toughs about
Golden recently. We hope the police
will keep a close eye on these gentry,
as Golden objects to be made a dumping ground for suoh people. The law
is sufficiently far reaching to meet the
case, as such characters are simply
parasites in a community, seeking
whom they may devour.

Everything Strictly First Class
Tlio number of accidents that have
lately occurred on the Western and
Pacific divisions of the C. P. R. show
that there is something radically
wrong. We have been endeavoring
to find out what is the trouble and
have como to the conclusion that
there are mainly two causes. One is
that the company has not sufficient
engines to move the largely increased
ti attic, with the result that some of
these engines have been required for
such constant use that they have not
been kept iu the best state of repair,
and have thus rendered the liability to
accident much greater. Another
reason is that OA-ing 10 the rush of
freight the trains that have been pot
over the mountains have been muoh
too heavy, so if they got away there
was no possible chance of stopping
them. This was particularly evident
in tho accident that occurred rn Monday morning last. It used to be
rule of the road tbat not more than 10
cars should bo taken at a tinio over the
hill be: ween Laggan aud Field, whereas the train that was wrecked consist-
ed of 15 cars. The men in charge of
the trains are thus made to suffer for
causes which are under the control ot
the head officials of the company'
rather than of their employees, When
an accident happens however, the unfortunate emplovee bas to suffer suspension or dismissul for what may uot
really be his fault. We hope the
President will cause full enquiry to be
made into these matters, when he will
no doubt find that what we say
true, and the best safeguards lie iu
supplying ample motive power, keep.
ing the plant in first class order, and
hauling lighter loads over tbe worst
portions of the road.
We quiie admit that sometimes the
employees may bo to blamo and that
in such cases the officer guilty should
be promptly suspended or dismissed,
but it is altogether unjust that these
men should have to suffer for mishaps
from causes not under their control,
and where the causes really lie with
tne adiiiiriistruti-.ii at headquarters.
Hitherto the C.P.R. men at this end
of the road have, as a rule, shown
every courtesy to the publio, and have
made many friends ol the C.P.R.
amongst travellers, but an exception
was found the other day. We refer
to the man Cross, who has just been
promoted to the charge of engine 316.
This individual has been sent from the
eaat, and while his promotion has im-

Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Kelly are people who are deeply grateful for a kind
intervention of Providence whereby the
life, health end happiness Of their IS
year old son, Master Harry, has been'
restored and preserved.   Mr. Kelly is
one ol the best known conductors on
the Midland dvision of the G. T. R.,

Sun reporter having heard ol the oure
ol the little fellow and the joy of his
parents, called at their home and was
met by Mrs. Kelly who, on being informed  of  the object ol bis visit, at
once told the story of ths cure and how
the results were attained.   "We were

He  replied  to  my call by saying be

is "Cross" byname. When Matter
Meohanio Cross appoints another of
his relatives to such an Important
position he should first of all send hlm
to a school where the "extra twopence for manners" might be taught
with some advantage. The C. P. R.
have had many millions out ot the
public purse on the pretext ot publio
convenience, and the company enjoy
great public privileges today as a re.
salt; but a few disobliging and insulting employees like the "Cross" driver
of engine 316 would soon make enough
enemies to set aflame tbe demand for
the repeal of the franchises at present
enjoyed by the C.P.R. When Master
Mechanic Cross wants to promote any
more of his relatives of the east ot the

A Fine Volume.
Standard books are are ever welcome
when they come to us in forms and
bindings representing sll the embellishment of the art of book making.
Suoh a book ia Tennyson's complete
works published by tbe Dominion
Company, Chichago, a copy of whioh
has just come to our desk. The contents aro well arranged, the illustrations, the print Is elear and neat and
tbe binding is superb. The Dominion
Company is forging ahead ee the leading western publishing house making
it specialty of fine subscription books.
Having salespeople In nearly every
nook of the country, the company
enjoys a large and growing trade.
As this company has a known reputation for liberality towards its agents
and fair trtatment of them, an agency
in this community for the above book,
or eome other published by this company, would be a source of considerable profit to the one fortunate enough
to secure it. Interested readers should
write the company for full particulars.
my motto.   I will not attempt to give
you in writing an idea of the stste of
the  trail,   it ie  simply horrible and
baffles  description  by even  the best
descriptive writer In the world.    In
many  places   you have lo walk over
dead horses and mules, sharp broken
rooks, boulders, liquid mnd, and up to
knees along most part of the trail.    I
often wish I could  have carried out
my first idea  ol  taking  only about
three weeks provisions, and a canvas
csnoe and gone right through.    I can
see  ..ow   tbat my idea wae right and
the trip (rom Skagway to  Dawaon I
could have made in 18 days and perhaps less.   A man witb a pack ol 75
pounds on bis back oan get along this
trail  comparatively easy, but when
you come to go over it with horses it
Is altogether different, and   wo must
not  forget  that we have had to build
this trail since we got on to it, and to
do that it had to be closed entirely for
about  eight  daya.    It was not half
made when we reached Skagway. The
man or mon who are  responsible  for
leading euoh a number ol resolute and
well  meaning  men  lu  suoh a trap
should   be   pnt to death bv the most
horrible   torture imaginable.     Every
day some poor fellow gets discouraged,
sells bis outfit for what he oan get and
commences to retreat with  as  sad a
lock as Napoleon's best men hsd whon
they retreated from Moscow.    I have
lo close although I would like to write
a great deal more,   but I am getting
cold and joints getting stiff.   I have
been sleeping in wst olothes and wet
blankets more   than  half the  time
since I am on the trail  And it hee
been raining about six days a week.
Good bye and an reyoir,
Yours sincerely,

On the occasion of the deputation
interviewing Hon. Col. Baker at Golden last week that gentleman gave
himself away badly when he stated
that there had been for three years a
vote on the provincial estimates lor
opening up the Moberly trail. Col.
Baker represents East Kootenay in the
Parliament of the Province and it was
his duty as such representative to eee
that tho votee made by parliament
were duly expended for tbe dletriot.
Otherwise, what was the use of having
theso votes made at all, il it was not
intended to spend them. Such a position is to our mind clear evidence of
neglect on the part of the Hon. Col
Baker of the interests of hit eon

Monday and proceeded to Fort Steele

we watched these recurring attacks,

worse condition than those that weut
before. His last attack confined him
to bed tor three months, and his heart

shattered that a- form of St. Vitus'

his hand and arm trembled so
that he could not feed or aid himself.

The Moberly Trail
Mr. UrlMth Ooee at Far at Wood Blver
Mr. Griffith, Gold Commissioner,
returned laet week from a trip un the
Columbia Volley as far asWood Blver.
He considers the Moberly trail oan be
opened for about $250. He finds however, that a muoh better road than the
Moberly trail oan be got as it runs
over hllli and dAles without any attempt at grading. It took Mr. Griffith six days to get through on the
wuy out, owing to the delay in cutting
through the fallen timber. There-
turn journey wai, however made in
four days, whioh was good travelling
considering the etate of the trail.
From the Klnbasket Lake to Wood
river Is 81 miles, and Mr. Griffith
made that part of the journey easily
In A day. A wagon road oould easily
be made here because it is practically
level country with the exception of
two miles of side dotting. Along the
Klnbasket Lake there would be about
three miles of bad side hill to out
through, the mountains here running
right into the lake. There are eight
miles of the trail between Donald and
the Lake that form remarkably good
travelling and could easily be converted into a wagon road. In making a
road between Donald And Wood Blver,
Mr. Griffith is of the opinion that
there would not be more than 10 miles
of difficult grading 'on the whole road.
Por the rest of the way the road oould
be formed by dumping and olearing.
Ten miles above the junction of the
Canoe and Columbia rivers, the Commissioner was informed that the country was all open so that from there to
Tete Jaune Cache the opening of a
road would be a very small expense.
Mr. Griffith says there are forests of
magnificent timber between Donald
and Canoe Biver. The Commissioner
was accompanied by H. G, Low.

Special Advice to Ladles Who

Cotton Goods.
If a merchant or anyone else telle
you that package dyes prepared for
all wool goods will color ootton goods
equally well, do not believe him. A
person ranking such an assertion
knows little or nothing about dyes
and dying work.
Vegetable fibres require speoial dyes.
Such dyes are not made by the makers

-Ives. Special dyes for vegetable
fibres, such as cotton and mixed goods
are in-.tde only by the proprietors of
Diamond Dyes, and every oolor is
simnly perfection.
Theso speoial Diamond Dye cotton
colors are ure.it chemical discoveries,
and confined entirely to Diamond
Dyes. The colors are sixteen in number, and tin men sly popular With oar-
pet, rug and m it makers everywhere.
Cotton goods dyed with these Diamond Dye Cotton colors never fade in
sun or washing.
If you are about to dye cotton goods
or desire to eelor rags for carpets and
mats, be sure and ask your merchant
for Fast Diamond Dyes for cotton and
mined goods. He should beep the

Quickly Banished by Paine's
Celery Compound
Two Thankful Letters that Should be
Read by Buffering Men and Women
For the effectual banishment of
rheumatism, sciatica and neuralgia,
Paine's Celery Compound is without
doubt the best medioine that human
science has ever produced. This marvelous remedy, devised by Professor
Edward Philips, M. D., one of the
ablest physlotans that ever lived, has
won the hearty praise of millions
of people for the wondrous oures It
has wrought In all lands. It is only
a medicine with euoh a record of cures
that oan Attain a world-wide reputation. It bss saved men, women end
ohildren, many of whom have been
given up by the doctors. It does its
work quiokly and well; it eradicates
every trace of disease; it builds np
fortifies and makes aotive every mortal whose limbs have been crippled
and deformed by rheumatism, and
drives away the terrors of neuralgia.
Today the ablest doctors are freely
prescribing Paine's Celery Compound
for tortured rheumatic and neuralgic
people. The thankful letters received
eaoh year from the cured in every
section of Canada would, if published
in book form, make a large and interesting volume.
The following letters will surely inspire all rheumatic and neuralgic
sufferers with a new and lively hope
for a better and happier life. Mrs. F.
McMann, of Thorold, Ont., says:
'I think it my duty to let you
know what Paine's Celery Compound
has done for my husband. For two
years' he suffered very much with
rheumatism in the back and became
so bad that he could not bend, stoop,
or sit in a chair at table, and I was
obliged to take his meals to him while
he lay in bed. He was treated by
various physicans, but received no
benefit until he used Paine's Celery
Compound. The first bottle gave him
relief, and after he had used six bottles he was quite free from rheumatism. He was troubled with piles
for 14 years, and found great relief
from the Compound. He says he feels
like a new men just now. We think
there is no medicine like Paine's
Celery Compound."
Mrs. A. Acheson, of Montreal, says:
"Two years ago I suffered intenselv
from neuralgia in the head, face and
shoulders. I was i i a terrible condition, and often so tortured that I conld
not rest or sleep. I became very
���veak and feeble, had giddy and faint
���pells, and often could not attempt
to go out on tho street. My appetite
becume poor and digestion very weak.
At night, while in bed, Ioften had oppressive and smothering feelings; my
whole nervous system was run down
and verv weak.
"I had been under the care of a
medical mnn and used various medicines, but no relief came to me from
these sources. I fortunately heard of
your Paine's Celery Compound; I decided to give it a trial, and I bless tbe
day I commenced wilh it. I used it
several months and now feel as well as
ever I did. All my pains have been
banished, I sleep and eat well and find
myself a new woman. I heartily recommend Paine'e Celery Compound to
All who are in need of an honeet and
true curing medioine. 200
