Hi* believed wo bad startod in tho

nun who have a private business ol

Tho exchange ol councillors ovcrj
year is not in favor of good government, inasmuch as the councillors
only become acquainted with tlicir
! work when tbey are turned out ol
ollice un.l new ones elected. Tins.
uniii lie, is not in ihe interest of the
best management   ol  public  utilities,
lie thought thus could be largely
remedied If tho business of the city
wus administered bj a commission
say of three, ono oi whom went out
ol ofllce annually and a new one elected, and these made then only
I business, civic business, this being
made possible by then* receiving ado
ijuate remuneration. These Bhould
have the power to appoint all the

as necessary.
Tlie objection might  bo made    tbat
this places too much powei     In    tho

Dr. James Hector Had a Narrow
Escape From Being Buried
Alive by His Indian buides in
Kicking Horse Canyon
When Dr. James Hector was exploring the western slopes ol the
Rocky Mountains in Llntish Colum
hia, lie happened to pass too near
the heels of an ill tempered cayuso,
The animal, probably not recognlz
Ing the future significance ul bis ac
tion, kicked the explorer with such
vehemence as to bleak three ol his
ribs and apparently kill him. So
convinced were tbc Indian guides of
Doctor Hector's demise that they
dug a grave near a mountain torrent
and were proceeding to bury him
when he recovered enough to protest
against nny    undue    haste. When
at last the doctor was able to travel, he investigated the course of the
stream near which his premature
grave had been dug, and found the
pass to the west for which he had
sought earlier in vain. Alter him the
Hudson Day company put a trail
through, which was followed years
later by the Canadian I'acilic railroad.
Dr. Hector.s experience with tho
cnyusc was, however, only a prelim
inary to incidents of which " Thc
Dig Hill," us railroad engineers
know it, wns the scene. Tbe grade
here varied between 3.5 and 4.5 per
cent, for an eight mile stretch. Our
engines were required to haul a train
up, and on the way down the trainmen walked alongside, to be sine
that thc brakes were not beating
nor wheels sliding. The very lirst
train down, writes 0. F. Carter in
The World's Work, ran away, climbed a curve, nnd plunged into the
river below, nnd "it was counted a
dull day when something as original
as it was startling did not happen."
It was here thnt Engineer Dad
Ames achieved the truly remarkable
feut of losing a snow plow. Anyone
who has ever seen n wing plow will
concede that something akin to genius would be required to lose such
au unwieldy piece of property, for it
weighs ubout *M tons, is about thu
size of a box car, and has wings that
cut a swath IG feet wide through the
snow drifts.
Dad started up the lull with Tommy Cod Conger ns lookout in the
cupola of the snow plow nud the us
ual crew inside to work the wings
aud tbe Hanger. He bowled along
at the usual speed for a couple of
miles, with the usual clouds ot snow
Hung bask against the cab windows
and obscuring the view, He knew
by instinct when he reached the tunnel, two miles and u quarter from
Field, uud there bu easeil up on the
throttle and the cut-oil. When he
emerged from the tunnel he dl
her down nud opened the throttle lor
the encounter with the drifts I
expected there; but things did not
seem to be going rignt, si

The suuw plow  was gout*
Dad stopped, got down, aud walked up  to  the pilot and  felt ol      the
drawbar    before      be
himself  of  this   incredil.ii'  fad
he started hack  slowly,  he and

More frequently the down trip was
the exciting one, iu spite of Innumerable precautions, Three or four safety switches were set in the main line
which were never opened until the
engineer Blgnaled that he was coming in good order ut a speed less
than eight miles an hour, ity these
switches a train exceeding the limit
was turned on to the Bbort lines up
the   mountain    side,    whom wrecks
could     take   placo   without   hindering
tratiic, but the circumstances ol thoir
operation   were   not   always   loreseen.
une day in January, MOD, tor instance, nn engine coming down the
lull With only a caboose got beyond
innl ml just below the liiitl safety
switch. As sonii ns he realized that
his engine wns running nwny tlie en
glnoor decided to get nil and walk;
pausing long enough to yank the
t In nt tli- open he yelled al. Ins lire
mail, and let. Illmsoll lull out. of his
window. The  engine   was    already
reversing in order to use the water
brakes; when steam wns admit.ted to
thc cylinders the drivers began to
spin Impotontly backwards thus decreasing their holding power ns the
engine shot down the mountain at a
speed which increased every instant.
The conductor and brakcmaii lost no
time in  following the example of  the
engineer nnd fireman by disembarking
With more celerity than dignity. As
everything had been done thnt could
be done, it would have been lolly
not to jump.
A runaway on a 1.5 per cent, grade
can cover nine-tenths of a mile, the
distance between safety-switches, in
a very short tune. The switch-tender
seeing the runaway tearing down the
mountain with the drivers encircled
by Indus of lire, leaped over the bank
and Med Into the river.
The engine broke Irom thc caboose
just above the switch. lieing light
and having its brakes set to the lim
it of effectiveness, the caboose slowed down the Instant it wns released
from  the   heavy  locomotive. The
engine run up on the spur to the
very end. The forward trucks even
went oil the rails a distance ot six
feet before the runaway came to a
Standstill. All this tune the driving
wheels were turning backward to the
accompaniement of a violent sputter
trom the exhaust. When tbe engine
came to n standstill, the great.wheels
had their lirst chance to get a good
grip on the rusty rails, Alter s
pause that Boomed hardly perceptible
to the spectators at a construction
camp lust below, the engine pulled
its trucks luuk on the rails; then,
under the full head ol steam rushed
backward down the steep Incline to
ward   the   caboose   which   was   li-itt.'i

There was n clash and loll tuns ol

When they reached Field tbe fireman with an earnestness born of ■"• n
viction, assured the excitol group
awaiting them that they had come
down the hill nt the rate of 4S'l miles
an hour. The unemotional records
however, showed that the action
time consumed in covering the eight
miles from Hector to Field, includ -
ing a stop below the tunnel was 17
minutes. Even this seemed to Jimmy Fidler a feat to be vaunted, for
no engine had ever made the decent
of the Dig Hill in such fust time;
and, it may be added, none has ever
done it since, for the average engineer is thankful for the time allowed
of -12 minutes for light engines.
The company, though, did not reciprocate Jimmy's sentiments. Instead of being dismissed in the usual
way, Jimmy was discharged by wire
and as if that action were not quick
enough,  the message     was      marked

Clothing Hints
Tlie law compels you to wear olotlies. Self-respect
nnd good taste compel you to wear good clothes.
Every man is interested in the clothes question.
Most men enjoy being well dressed. Tbc law and
tbe climate compel attention to the subject even
among those who might overlook its importance.
Some men go through life making mistake upon
mistake in buying clothes. They either pay too
much, too little or pay just enough, hut do not get
what they pay for. If you will read the few facts
here given and remember them, you will have
learned something about good and stylish clothes,
how they are made and how to obtain them, that
will save you trouble and save you money for the
rest of j our life. 20th Century Brand garments
are all presfed absolutely with hand irons. Ready-
made clothes are pressed off on pressing machines.
20th Cenlury Brand pressers do not shape our garments. The shape is tailored into them before
they reach the preesers. Gaiments tbat are shaped
with the iron are quickly unshaped by the weather.
The edges on 20:h Century Brand garments are
shaped so evenly and perfectly that the presser has
little or nothing to do in the way oi stretching or

Tlie Burgomaster
The well known musical comedy,
"The Burgomaster" presented by
W. 1'. Cullen, was staged last night
at the opora house before a good
audience. The    plot of the      play
dates from the old town of New
Amsterdam, now the great eity of
New  York. interspersed      through
the plot were a series of up-to-date,
aud catchy musical and vocal numbers, which greatly pleased the audience. A smart and attractive
chorus supported the leading parts,
while thc entire music went with u
swing and vivueiousuess that characterizes the musical comedy. The
leading roles were well tilled, VV.

much appreciated. The whole was a
production which could not fail to
please, ami the music led by nn eflic-
ient orchestra, was pretty and bright
The comedy  was well sustained    and
the entire performance much enjoyed   from personal experience of a

Tbe fair grounds here have not sufficient open space to allow of an ascent with any degree of safety to
