Winnipeg, Aug. 15.���General Sup
erintendsnt Leonard ol the Canadian
Pacific railway shortly before 18 o'clock last swelling received word from
IngoK, 102 miles east of Winnipeg, ol

gine, leg badly injured.
Mr Leonatd gave out the following
statement!
'���Extra west with harvesters from
Ihe maritime provis.ee. left track three
miles east of Isigolf this evening. The
canse said to be by a rail breaking under Ihe engine while train passing over
it.   Et.glus ansl fire coaches derailed.*'
further details of the disaster re
celvud by the Telegram from Rat Portage and other points along the line
show it to be of a serious nature. Thr
wrecked train was llie first section of
four nxj,ecis's| in Winnipeg last night
and thia morning. According to th.
sJ.P. R. bulletin the Wreoks-d trail,
was slue b����;.v 5 DO p.m. .-.tt was to

at 6:110, KSt? and 9:80. The four sect
ions made up of lhe first. harvester*
excursion from the maritime provinces
whioh left St John, N. B��� last Saturday. It is estimated ihait' there, were
SOO peojsle on Ihe derailed train as jt
was made up of IU coaches. The three
other sections carried about IliOO people. As soon as the news of the accident was received by (ht C. P. 11.
officials, the wrecking train was ordered out, and Dr.* Blanchard, the C.P U
physician, was notified to place himself
in readiness to leave (or the scene of
the disas.sr without delay.'
As the first reports received wete of
an exceedingly iile.raii.g nature, Dr.
Blanchard reauested Doctors Chew.,
and Cheamut lo accompany him. The
wrecking (rain left the city at tl o'clock
with instructions to waste no time in
resching the scene of the accident*
Tke news of the wreck must hare

occurred for a wrecking train from
that city arrived at IngoK sit 6:30, or
an hoar and a half alter the accident.
The special correspondent of tbe
Telegram wited last night that Doctors
Scovil and Gunne accompanied the

representative.
'Our delegation from tl.e west i��
now on the way to Montreal whtsre 1
understand negotiations aro going for'
ward for the settlement of the whole
business. It is probable that it will
be settled before the arrival of tl.e
western delegation, and lhat in reality
iheir services will not bi) required.
"Itis simply a matter now of the
two sides getting down to business
and talking things over. It is ail a
question of the recognition of the union
principle���the matter of wages can be
settled' in a very short tisue, and I
think' thiol HM troubles will disappear."
This is in line with a s|*eui..l despatch published by the Province on

Pittsburg, Aug. 12.-The struggle
for msslory between the manufacturers

fairly launched, and on the first show
of strength sdvantage is with the
former. The geners! strike order issues!
by President Shaffer, of the Amalgamated Association, hss S's far Iseen
obeyed b.v only about 14 000 men, no-
oordint to the best figures ohthinnlslft
here. The first two preliminary call*.
were answered l.y ..bout 45.000 men!
so that the total number out now is
tbe neighborhood of (I0.0C0. The strikers made gains hero today over the
showing of last, and their prospecss
for further accessions at both McKees-
port and Wheeling during the week
are vory favorable.
Tlie action of the Amalgamated men
at Chicago, Joliet und Rsv View, ill
refusing to come out, and iheir fs.ilu.-a
to secure any recruits in the Carnegie
group, throuclnnit the Kisknnmeiac
valley and the big |,lants at Youngs-

inarkeslly disappointing to them.
They are keeping up the lii-bt, however, in a spirited manner, und claici
that tliey have strength in reserve
which will stirjsi'ise thoir oponents*
They are |)re��slng ilis-ir advantago at

Two hundred atisl fitly butt welding
helpers came out tonight and crippled
the great butt welding department of
tbe National Tube Works at McKess*

Fully 2.000 meu will lie forced to quit

RALP SMITH AND  THE TRACK
MEN'S STRIKE.
We are forty to note a teuJeiicv on
tl.e j.art of some provincial uewspa|.ers
tss cast reflections on Ralph Smith, M.
P , inesiJeni of tl.e Dominion Trades
a ud Lalair Council, for not taking,
more active part in settling the track
men's strike. These pa|sers seem to
think it Is Mr. Smith's duty to |.ush
himself in whersrer there is trouble
hetweeu capital and labor and take a
hand in adjusting matters iu the interest of laboring .net.. In the past Mr.
Smith has always shown a willing
ness to act as arbitral ur in labor dis
putes, bit wisely refrains;from doing
su until asked. In the matter uf the
trackmen's strike Mr. Smith has never
bo... resjuosieil to use his good offices as
uu arbitrator, aud until he has received
such request lho trackmen cannot rea
sos.ably find fault with hiin. He,
however, |iromptly took np thn matter
of importation of alien laborers and
haa done everything in his power tu
have the Act eutorcen.
Wr think it would lw well tor union
msn. engaged iu the strike to fully
acquaint themselves with the facts ol
the case before passing jsidgiueut oi,
their la'.or leader iu the Duu.iploi,
11 man, Some time ago, when a airike
was on at ttos.land, Mr. Smith's services wero requisitioned and he .lid
splendid work in the laboring men's
behalf. Por year* past Mr. Smith has
acted as arbitrator in labor disputes on
the Islsud, particularly between the
coul baron, a.tsl their employees, and
in nearly every case his efforts have
been more or less successful.
Working men have not so man.
representatives in parliament that they
cau afford to lose a man of Mr. Smith's
undoubted ability aud itifluei.ee. He
is ...uuli respected in Ottawa an.l his
a Ivico is always sought l.y the Govern
...ent in matters affecting the interests
-of labor. Moreover, he has a clean
record uud none of his enemies cau
puiul to a single instance where bo hus
betrayed his trust Io the cause ol
labor. He showed his sincerity ill thi.
respect by refusing to accept a fat
office iu Ihe labor bureau at Ottawa,
preferring to stay in parliasn.nt where
he oould serve those who did him the
honer of electing Iiun as their representative.
If thn truckmen want Mr. Smith's
help let then, ask for it and we fusil
thsy will iiui Ise disappointed.
Mr. Robbins, secretary of Hospital

A parliamentary paper ha* been it-

bv Lord Kitchener, August 7, in to

Imperial Government, tbe Govern
ment* of Cape Colony and Natal concurring. The proclamation says: All

who hur* not surrendered before September 15, shall be recoverable from
such burghers, anil shall be a charge

Tbe preliminary correspondence
shows that the proclamation is based
upon suggestion* which tho Government of Natal forwarded to Colonial
Secretary Chamberlain Julv 24 snd
that lhe date, September 15, was recommended by Lord Milnst.
COMMI-NT OF LONDON  ISA1I.1K9.
Tho afternoon newspapers comment
approvingly upon the proclamation of
Lord Kiichensr. Even the Westminster Gn-ieite hiijs there is no fault to
find wish it. nor Is there any objection
to make oh the score o( justice. Ii
thinks, however, that it is oxtremelj
doubtful if It will huva uny effect in
shortening lhe war. Most of the fighting Boors ars already completely ruin
ed and nothing distrains thom. on nc-
count of Ih* devastation of ihoco.intry.
Th* Globs say* tha proclamation is
a* judicious a* it is drastic, and that
the only question is wh.ihor it is
strong enough, adding '-not even the
wildest pro Boer oan find fault with It
on the score ol inhumanity. It he*
long been obvious that such a step
was imperative in order to avert ruin
upon the inhabitant* dteirious of

Ought, it would seem, to Rive exemption
from the diseases which prey upon th*
residents of thickly populated citie*.
Hut there is no exemption from disease,
.*.. -.= to country, s*. it lhe city, ou*
may see the cheeks trrow hollow and the
eyes grow dull while the frame wastes
away with that terrible disease, consumption.
Weak lungs nre made strong by tbe
use of Dr, Pierce's Golden Medical Dis-
covery. It cures obs.iuate and stubborn
roughs, bronchitis, bleeding of the lungs
and other snnptoini which, if neglected
or unskUlltilly trs**ite-d, terminate fatally
in consumption. The action of Golden
Medical Discovery in the curing of wilting diseases is entirely philosophic.
Emaciation, and consequent loss of
weight, are among the most striking
symptoms of what arc known an wasting diseases. The botlv ia not being adequately nourished, and the cause ot this
lock of nourishment is not lack of food
but lack of ability in the stomach and
the other organs of digestion and nutrition to prepare the food for tlle assimilation and nutrition of the body. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures
diseases of the stnnach and the organs
of digestion and nutrition, and so en-
sbles the body to be nourished back to
strength in the only way by which
strength csn come: that is, by food perfectly digested ansl asssimilated.
Dr. Pierce's s3olden Medical Discovery
is a temperance medicine. It contains
np alcohol, neither opium, cocaine or
any otber narcotic.
Accept no substitute for " Discovery."
There ts nothing " just as gsxxl "foryou,
though many tilings may pay the dealer
a larger profit.
