Tbo meeting of citizens of
Fevels-oke called 'or Wednesday
evening in the court house, to
consider tbo best means to secure
a supply of water for tho town,
did not materialize, owing probably to the uneclllcd state ol the
town over tlie railway accident
of tbo morning, and a largo
number being present u$ the inquest. The securing of a good
water service is u question which
every citizen Bboiilil be interested
in, Water is needed both for
domestic purposes and fire protection, and wo are practically
dcpendei t upon the river for our
water supply, each consumer being obliged io get what be re-
quires t,s best be can. It is a
pity and mistaken economy that
some united nclioii has not beforo
tbis bet ii taken by lhe people oi
the town tuset-UiO a water supply from tho creek reserved by
tho Dominion government for
BUch purpose, There aro few
[duces with equal natural advantages in this diiooiion, and it
shows want of appreciation to
allow them lo lemtiin unutilised.
There should bo a good turnout
at the meeting on Wednesday
evening to consider the question
ot providing a wuler syetem fur
tbe town.

Tho Burning of   a Bridge
Results in a Terrible
Disaster.
The town was startled early Wednesday morning by the intelligence
that an east-bound freight train bad
gone through a Bmall bridge about
three and a half miles from town,
and tbe crew were buried in tbo
debris, Tho accident ocourud nt
2 50 o'clock and Brakeman Wm.
Cmbr run to the station heio with
tbo news, while Conductor McDonald, Mr. IA SloCurty and another
���nun who was bringiug through a car
of horseB, and who were uot injured
remained to work in attempting to
rescue tho men beneath the wreck,
A wrecking train with sooros of
willing bauds hastened to tho scono
of tho disaster, Thero what remained
intuol of engine No. 357 stood on
the inclined bank of a email stream,
���the momentum of tbo moving train
having carried it almost across the
chasm,���whilo heaped high bohind
it and strewn around for yards in a
hctorogeneouB muss wore tho shattered and broken remains of half a
ilov.i'ii cars and their freight of doad
and d.ving men, cattle and horses,
Btrnggling vainly or lying crushed
beneath Hie ruins, au awful pilo ot
deuth and destruction,
llnikenitin Fred Tonny was taken
out before tho wrecking train arrived. Ho wus lying in front of the
tiro box near tho engine aud was
Bculdod about tho body and bauds.
Ho was able to climb upon the box
cars whioh did not leuvo the track
ami made bis way to the caboose,
In trying to get in tbo cupola win-
dow, however, he fell to tbe ground,
aud then it was discovered ho was
more noriously injured than at first
thought.
Tho wreckers after removing the
remains of cars ond rolling away
somo (load and dyiug Bteers, pulled
out from near tho fire box the
ini-.ngleel remains of Fireman Thos.
Irwin. Ho was terribly scalded and
his skull was crushed in, probably
from coming iu violent eontuot with
the flro box, His death must have
been almost instantaneous.
Partly beneath Irwin, with only
his head and shouhlerB out of water
and held there by tbe great weight
of broken timbers, with a steer
kicking and sometimes striking his
body and fuoe, was Brakeman John
Jeaiitson. He cried out with pniu
and great care had to bo exercised
in extricating bim. The thigh bone
of oue of his legs was shattered and
broken nnd be was covered with
bruises, bis face being cut and
bleeding.
Engineer Alf. Morso was taken
from the other sido of tbe wreck, he
being wedged al-uost beneath tho
engine, with car timiitirs, cattle and
horses, under around and above him.
By tho use of jiicks he wa;i taken
out, alter lying iu bis perilous
position two boars. His light leg
was broken below tho knee, and he
was also bruised about the body and
bead. Dru. S. S. and 0. A. Tunstall were summoned from Kamloops,
and arrived here abont 10 o'clock,
A caboose was converted into an
hospital, where the injured men
were attended to aa quickly as possible, the officials aud employees of
the railway company doing everything in tbeir power to secure for
the stifferei'B the best care,
la tbe meantime auxiliary gangs
from tbe east and west went to work to
repair tho break in the read, and by
nine o'clock in tho evening it was
open for traffic, a fill uiand temporary bridge being built.
AN INQUEST HELD,
Coronir Italian of Douald came
down and in the evening em-
panelled a jury lo inquire into the
causo of the doath of Thomas Irwin.
Tho jury after hearing the evldenoe
offered rendered a verdict of accidental death.
Irwin was a young man of 23
years of ago, and had just boon
omployod as fireman on the run botween Kamloops and liovelsloke for
a month, bo having boen previously
engaged farther np the line, His
body was sent east to his home at
Point Edward, Ont,
Engineer Morse and Brakomon
Tonny und Junneson wero sent to the
hospital at Kamloops for treatment.
Little hopos wero entertained by the
doctors of tbo recovery of Tonny
and the Bad news of his death was
received hero on Thnrsday. Tonny
was not engaged on thu train, but
was just taking a rido for pastime.
He bus been engaged as brakeman
on tho Paolfle Division of tbo 0 P.
H. for upwards of a year, llo was a
married man aud leaves a wife in
Boston, to nioiiin his untimely end.
Juinieson, too, is, very low, and it is
feared that is may bo necessary to
amputate his leg. Morse is doiug
woll considering the inj urios ho ru-
reoeivod.uud hia speedy recovery is
considered cert .tin.
now it H.trrasD,
Not the slightest danger was expected, and the train was running at
a good rate ovor a comparatively
level stretch. There was nothing to
indicate that tha bridgo had been
burnt dowu, the rails remaining intact aoroBS tho chasm, and it was
not until a fow yards from it tbat
the engineer discovered that tbe
supports were burnt away, It was
too lato to attempt to stop tho train
or even jump. Tlio four who were
injured wero ou tbo ougino at tbo
time of tho aocideut, Irwin boing
engaged in sweeping ia front
of tbe fire box when tho
crash came, In Iosb than a second
thu engine bad almost cleared  tho
gap, but the rails give way beneath
the weight, being bent and crimped
like wire, and two stock cars, two
flat cars and two box cars were
burled upon it, and Hie unfortunate
mon. Conductor Mi-Donald, Brake-
man Carter, F. McCarty and a drover
from Brandon, who were in llie
caboose, were thrown down by tho
shook, but hastened out to tho wreck
to render what assistance th. ? could.
Of tho sixteen cattle uot one was
saved, and eleven horses perished,
while six others got off with slight
injuries. Tho six car* referred to
were mostly demolished iuto splint*
ers. Tlie tender is a completo wreck
while the engine is void of mount'
ings and pilot.
It is supposed a spark from Iho
wood train of tbe previous evening
set fire to tbo bridge, as there is no
timber around from which it could
eatoh iu any other way, and it was
altogether a most unlikely pi we for
an accident.
I.O.G.T. PICNIC.
A Fine Day's Outing Down
by the River.
Monday was observed as a holiday
in town, to celebrate tbe 72nd anni-
vcrsury of the Queen's birthday.
"Queen's Weathr" prevailed, iho
day being bright and warm, with
probably an accent on warm. During the early hours of tbe morning
active preparations were made by
many for the picnio held under tbe
tinspiees of Columbia Lodge of tbe
Independent Order of Good Templars, and to which the general publio
was invited, The bussea carried
6ome picnic passengers up to the
stution in the morning, and later en
iu the day Dave Cowan with the
Victoria bus and J. P. Sutherland,
H. N. Coursier and Chas Lindmark
with their rigs, brought further
reinforcements. The grounds
selected were iu a very suitable Bpot
down bj the Illecillewaet, and about
meal time it presented a very animated picture, with kaliedoscopis
changes till well on in the evening
Tho lunch provided was excellent,
choice piouio viands being supplied
in abundance, and which wero evidently very much appreciated.
Swings aud the bhado of the woods
provided attractions while baseball
after the rounder style and other
sports kept the wbolo crowd well
engaged.
Tbo ladios r.ice was a very exciting
contest, tea fair starters lining np at
the mark. Only three were in it,
however, Mrs. Coursier taking first
place, Mrs. Bassou second, and Mrs.
Creelmau, third.
A tug uf war between skies picked
by Mr. J. M. Keliio, M. P., and
Chas, Lindmark, was a hard tassel,
aud the hitters team was highly
elated with viotory.
It remained, however, for the
ladies to humble them in the dust,
and this tbey did with tbe grace of
polished dissemblers. Seven of the
stronger sex thought tbey bad a
soft thing to outpull fourtoen of the
ladies. The pull begun aod thirteen
luihes looked anxiously toward their
Captain at the cud of the liue. She
was equal to Ihe occasion and puck-
ed her lips to whistle That was all
that was nooossary, and tbe twonty-
eight fair hands let go as ono, and
seven men rolled over in the dust
amid the derisive cheers of the
assomblcd crowd.
Mapper was then spread after
which the picniccrs, wended their
way horaowary, evidently protty tired
but screnly satisfied with tho days
outing.
Professor Martin, magician, von-
troloquist, etc., gave an exhibition
in tho school house last night to a
very approciativo audience, aod will
givo another this evening to a better
houso, uo doubt. The performance
wus most interesting throughout,
and many wonderful feats of illusion
wore performed. The marionette
performances provoked much mirth,
and everyone who witnessed tbo
entertainment prounounce it 'way

A Spring Poem.
)Yhen Nature's bosom palpitates
And vogittttion hesitates
'Neath the slushy, snowy lather���
J( ypn think it barbir-bla'.lier,
(Jr the foam that bakers gather,
Call it froth, if you would rather,���
Spring in bilin' in the bile;���
I sit down and let 'or bile,���
I'Sit and  sing,   by tho  spring."
Gentlo Spr|ng|
'Cause I've often beard it said,
Rhyme will bust a feller's bead;
When commotion's in my natnr',
'Long in April,���'May be luter,���
And eruption near the crater,
got' a-rappin' liko a grater,
I, tho situation grasp,
Man the quill and let 'or rasp;���
Penile Spring! Sappy Si iug I Sulky
Spring!
ITaint a tonic that I need,
No, nor borax with my food,
Nor a visit to fljetiller,
Nora feather-bed and 'pillor,"
Nor a patent stomoch filler
Mixed with Doctor Koch's Killer;
But I'm spilin' just to sling
Out some verses on the Spring,���
Gentle Spring! Avon Spring! Any
Spring!
When I fepl the verser'jolt,
I "git up ami git" a "bull";���
Cateh the "gentlo" titter-teeter,���
feel the Muses double-boater
Wiggle on iu magic meter,
Like a kitchen custard .-boater;
Then yon see a feller must
Either poetise or bust!
peutle    Spring!    Stormy   Spring
Sparkliu' Spring!
AVhen the snow bus disappeared,
And tho wind of winter veered
When the robin is a-uestiu',
Aul the gobbler li a restiu',���
The potatato bug iufesiju',
And election is protestin',
Then aguiu I want to fling
Opt some verges.���Gentle Spring!
Bitter Spring!   Backward   Springl
Buggy Spring!
When wo'ro runnin' short of feed,
And we have to buy our seed,
Thon how long (ho sprjua, is seem-
in',
Aud tbo farmer isn't teamin',
And tbo Jersey isn't creamin',���
Gentle Spring, in moving bore,
Had a "spring" put out of gear;���
Tedious   Spring!    Tardy Spring!
Tilted Spriug I
When the fur has "had its day,"
And the ulster thrown away;���
When yep read the simple sonnet
On the stunning Biiramer bonnet;
Broom and dustiu'-pan upon it;���
Whe" "tho women" wants to don it
And the rhymo is coining in,
Fashion giggles with a grin;���
Gentle   Spring!   Dressy   Spring I
Donning Spring!
When you seek the spade nnd rake,
Lawn to pluan and garden, make)
When tho Bile's a-gettin' Armor,
And tbe brook bigius to murmur
'Bout the slimy little squirmer
That may grow to bo a spermer,
Vei'8eB then are everywhere;���
Gentle Spring! a double share;���
Radiant   Spriug I    Racy   Spring!
Runuing Spring!
When tbo butcbor stops supply;
When for bread tho bairns cry;
When the woodmon store their
exec;
When we'ro owing rent and taxeB;
When the tailor wrathy "waxes,"
And thore's notliin' that  attracts
ns,
Then I hear tho verges ring;
Bo I pitch the ttino and sing,
pontic Springl   Budding ' Spring I
Broken Spring I
When  "tho woman''  wields,   tho
broom,
parptts up in every room,
'Causo I euu not Huil my linen,
That I call my "under pinniu':"
Uo you think it's very strange
That I'm longing for a "change?"
Oenlle    Soring!   Ancient   Spring!
Awkward Spring!
When amidst Iho vernal sheen
Mends aro $antlfld ia their green;
When tho chilly wind is hiisbiu',
Anil the hill and yulLy blnshiu',
And the foliage n-iushin',
Aud the poetry a-gushiti',
Gentle spring with eheor is hero,
Making lifo so "near and dear";���
llosy Spring!  Rapid Spring! Bus-

Crow aud crane nro seen around
Aud the eriketer ami qnoiter,
When the fox nud weasel loiter,
ivfnd the gamier is adroiter,
In his patient reconnoitre,
Then it makes me think of spring,
So I poetise ami ping,
Gentlo Spriug! Rural Spring! Rub
ber Spring!
When the 'shecter' with his bill
At my nnso begins to drill,
Which is ever so provokin;���
When the sugar bush is smokin,
Aud tho frisky frog is e-roakiu,
And the garden seed n soiikiu,
Then tho verses, like a storm,
Rush around i:i every forms-
Gentle String!   Southgri)  Spring!
Sudden Spring!
When the gooso begins to lay,
And the turkey steels away;
When the weather's warmer getliu.
And tho Bpepkled lieu is Betlin,
And the husbandman a frettiti,
'Bout the siekle he's a whetlin,
Then I let lhe verses swing
To the lovely, gentle Spring!���
Lovely Springl Foggy Spring! Forward Springl
When the bit.la of pluaiago rarq
With their twitter lill llw air;
When the ti.nnii'iiek is gnuimin,
And the partridge is a drummin,
And tbo -busy boo' a btimmin,
Aud the blossoms are n comic; ���
From tho peasant to the king,
How we love thee, gentle Spring!
Lovely Springl Laden Spring! Living Spj'iflfjjl
When the humming birds appear;
Whon the uigbtingulo is hero
Sitting pert-bed upon the trestle,
Watching   Soring aud    Winter
'  wrestle;
When tbe yneht and stub ly vessel.
From the harbor where they nestle,
.Send away a wing and wing,���
It is Spring! Gentle Springl
Peaceful Spriug I   Pensive  Spring!
Patent Spriug!
When, with breeze's lullaby,
And tbo mouuing zephyr's sigh,
Comes tbe soothing, sunny shower
From the peerless parent Power.
On the fleeting forest llower,
Nursed   ia   Nature's    blooming
bower,
Life is sweeter and I cling
Unto poetry ond sing,
Furo-the-welll   but not forevorl I
