The vote polled in this riding on
tlie 17th was a small one,only 368 out
of 552 voters asserting tlieir rights to
tlie franchise. Downie creek and the
Hot Springs alone gave Mr. Brown a
majority, the remainder of the constituency going solid against the Opposition exponent. At Bobspn and
Trail creek the deputy returning
officers- issued the colored ballots,
thereby causing them to be thrown
out as spoiled. . Following is the result:—
Railway Subsidies.
Among the railway subsidies granted by the Dominion Government this
session are the following for roads in
this Province: From the .junction of
Elk and Kootenay rivers to Coal creek

from off a false bedrock, about four
feet from the surface. This fa] se bed
rock was composed of a cemented
glacier sediment. Many an argument occurred amongst the miners as
to whether the sediment was formed
previous to or after the run of gold.

i struction.
Shortly after four o'clock on Thursday afternoon a wind storm struck
the town, that almost proved the
wreck of the steamers Illecillewaet
and Lytton, together, with their scow.
The storm at first sight did not appear to be anything more than a
pleasant breeze; but.it freshened in a
few minutes into a miniature cyclone
and speedily lashed the surface into
frothing billows. McDonald's boat
house, at the foot of Slocan Avenue,
was quickly demolished, but the
boats were saved.
The Lytton and scow were moored
in the cove to the west ot the wharf,
unloading rails preparatory to returning at once to Revelstoke. Tlie wind
struck the steamer full on the broadside, just as Capt. Nesbitt was endeavoring to steam out. But she had
no room to turn and the boat refused
her helm. In a tryce she was cast
against a tree, smashing it off, and
tlien beat on to the driftwood inshore.'
Signals of distress were sounded by-'
the whistle and nearly„the whole population turned out to render assist.
ance. The fire was at once drawn
and the boiler blown off. Guy ropes
were run out and the capstan manned to pull the stern off shore, as the
wheel was getting smashed. .
The waves dashed the steamer
about like a piece of cork, breaking
the guards on one side, staving "a
hole in tlie upper works, and casting
loose the smoke stack,' which threatened to wrench the0 boat in-pieces.
Fortunately   the    wind    subsided
else tiie Lytton  would  have been a
total wreck.    Later on in the evening
tiie Kootenay steamed over, in a half
squall and towed the Lytton over
into the bay, where she was at once
hauled out and t" e repairs commenced.    By Sunday morning, she was in
a position to- steam out,   though her
upper works are still somewhat out
of plumb.    The  company's big scow,
lying alongside the rail racks,   had
several large holes jabbed in its side
by pounding against  the  end of the
cross irons.    When the .wind ceased,
it was hauled out, new timbers put in
and the seams re-caulked.    Its bottom
remained secure, not taking iu a drop
of water. ■«.'.'...'.
Further down towards the, mill,
the Illecillewaet was moored, and
she was threatened with destruction
by the logs from the mill boom dash-
in g against her. She suffered bu •
little. All three crafts had narrow •
escapes.
