Jury in C. P. R. Train Wreck
Renders an Impartial Verdict
-Cause of Wreck Remains
An Enigma.
" We the undersigned jury empanelled to enquire into the cause of
death ol Allun A. Dewnr and James
Beattie, find tlmt they came to tlieir
dentil liy the train leaving the track
at n point about a mile and n quarter
east ol Griffith Siding, through a
cause unknown to us. We lind no
evidoi co which would lead us to believe that the tiain was travelling at
an excessive speed, nor do we find that
tbe snid train was not under complete
control. We also lind that the train
wail equipped with a Buffloleot crew,
and eaid crew were giving proper attention to their duties, and the safety
appliances were in good working
The above was the verdict rendered
in the train wreck ciibo by n jury consisting of Messrs. J. P, McLennan
(foreman), W A. Sturdy, 11. .1. Bews,
XV. I'ugli, A. I). MoOlenegban, J, G
The hearing began on Monday afternoon and was finished yesterday
morning, o S. McCarter appeared in
the interests ol the railway company
and Mr. Gillan appeared for the friends
of the deceased engineer and fireman.
The testimony wai somewhat con-
llicting, While the theoretical evidence of Ibe C.l'.K. ollicials seemed to
show thnt the train was thrown from
the track I.y travelling at excessive
speed, the preponderance ol evidence
union the train crew was positive
that they were not travelling more
I Imii '25 miles au hour.
Conductor MacDougall stated that
he bud crossed No. U7 at Griffith siding at wbicli time he was running
nearly three hours late. It wns about
n mile and a half from Griffith siding
to tbe Bcene of tbe accident. They
were running at that about 25 miles
an hour. He wns sitting in the
cupola of the caboose when tbe train
came to the curve. It stopped with a
sudden shock that threw him up
agniust the window sill. He could
not see more than two cars ahead ot
him as tne curve bid the rest of the
train Irom view. He got out, and
running forward met the rear brake-
man and told him to flag the rails to
protect tbe track. He saw eight or
nine cars turned over the bank, and
four or live porters crawling through
the windows ol one ol ihem. Tha
engine was turned over down the bauk
and he saw the sti nm bluwiug out of
it. He ran on towards Six-Mile creek
to call for relief, and looking at his
watcli after going half a mile saw that
it wus 11:10. He met some section
men and brought tbem back to assist,
and when they arrived they found Ihe
otbers had drawn the bodies of the
engineer and tireman away from tbe
engine and they were lying unconscious hy oue of tbe cars. Nine cars
nnd the eugine were overturned and
the Irniit trucks ol the tenth car were
off the track.
J. P. Forde, divisional engineer, said
he hnd seen the wrick about two
hours after the accident occurred, and
bad miiile a thorough examination of
the track. He found no indications of
trouble wbere tbe engine bad left it.
From appearances Ibe cars hsd been
pulled off by tbe weight of tbe engine
hefore them. In his opinion the cause
ol the wreck was that the train was
running so fast that she refused to
take the curve. He believed it posii-
| ble for a train to round the curve with
'safety at a epefd of 30 or 86 miles an
hour, though tbe schedule only called
for lit} miles an hour at that point.
At the spot where the engine went
over tbe bank the ends of the ties
were badly smashed, but there were
no wheels marks on the rail aud none
on the ties lictween the two rails. If
the engine were travelling at such a
rate that ber weight would tend to
keep her still going in a straight
direction, she would probably have
careened with the impsct against the
curve and down OR at an angle.
Befides speed, ddective equipment
might have cam-id the accident, but
everything was so badly broken up it
was impossible to tell whether the
equipment was defective or not.
.1 A. Bird, looomotlvt foreman, snid
be had arrivail nt the scene of tbe
accident about 4 o'clock in the alter-
uoon. The engine was Iviug about
ten leet down tbe bank. It was on
its right side and the light wheels
were buried in tbe eaitb so thnt it was
impossible to see whether there was
anything wrong with them or not.
He did not think it possible tbat a
flange could be broken as the wheels
were of steel, nnd in his experience ol
27 years with engines he had not
known more than one instance in
which a lUnge bud ever broken on a
steel wheel. The engine bad been
carelullv examined lielore leaving tbe
shops and was in first class condition.
He considered the deceased Dewar a
csrelul and ci nifetent young msn,
and one not likely to run at an ex-
cissivr spied.
XV. B McKenzie, engineer ol the
first sictiou ol No t'7, which bud
en ssed tbe second section ol No. (> at
Orithih siding, said be had passed the
point where the wreck occurred ft few
minutes belore, and at thnt time the

H miles au hour between Griffith
siding and the mn ul the accident,
Ferguson, one of the  brakemeu   on
| the wrecked train said that ihey were
1 running about 25 miles an hour when
1 the   accident   occurred.    They    were
running a little luster  than  schedule
time, but did not think the train   was
going too last, as he was   engaged    in
putting down the retainers when   tbe
shock   cnnie, and   the  oar  he was In
rolled  over   and  gradually settled on
I her side
Oliver Jones, Iront brakeman, did
not think tbey could hnve been going
more thnn 25 miles an hour. He had
been letting down aome nl the retainers and Ihe brakes hnd been applied
on tbo way down, Ilo hnd pii.'lied
forward nnd been rolled over two or
three times when tlm cur lelt the
track unit had got out through the
window, A loose lire on tbe engine
wheel might, hnve caused it to leave
the truck, but he gave it uu his opinion
tbat tbe cause must have been in
something wrong with the track. It
was hoi at the time und Ihere might
hnve been a sun kink.
Norman, a colored porler who had
been in the wreck, said lie i In night the
train was going about 15 miles an
hour when the uccident occ md He
was looking out ol the window and
noticed the speed at which they
snapped over a bridge shortly belore.
He would not be very positive about
anything as it was Ins first trip over
tbe line.
W. M l.ile, another colored porter,
suid he bad not been taking much
notice of the speed, hut from the way
(he train was swinging just bef re the
wreck be thought it might havo been
going 41) or -15 miles an hour.
" Was there any particular thing

"Yes, the wreck struck ine," replied
the witness gravely,

Mr. McCarter explained that they

bad summonsed them, but the rest
had gone east and these were the only
men lelt. The jury, alter an ab8t_.'ico
of about half-ttu-boiir, brought in the

I Big Day at Vernon--Largest Parade Ever
Seen in Interior
A special train which lelt here at 0
unlock on Monday morning took many
Revelstoke citizens down into the
Okanagan valley to join in the hig
Orange celebration at Vernon. A
train load   also   went from Kamloops,
and up ttinn Okanagan Landing oame
another tralnload  gathered from the
i towns and settlements along the lake,
As had been promised, tbe parade was
the largest ever seen ill lhe Interior of
British Oolumbia. Tbey stalled trom
the Vernon skating rink at 12:80 and
m.ilillt<l in double lilt- lo the cily park
where a number of speeches were delivered, and the programme of sports
for the afternoon was held.
Fifteen lodges were repiessenlid iu
the parade, and seven hands tooted
out the music. So many men in
Orange regalia with banners Boating
over them and drums booming and
bunds playing, made a spirit stirring
scene. Ii was the biggest parade out
land mil, and the largest crowd ever
] seen iii Vernon, The Revelatoke band
was among those that helped to swell
1 the volume of loyal sound.

There was a shower in the morning,
just sufficient lo lay the dual, and lhe
weather wm cool and pleasant, making the day an ideal one for the sports
and parade, The Revelstoke contingent arrived back aboot I o'clock

Double Funeral yesterday was an Impressive
The funeral of Albin A. Dewar, and
James Beattie, tbe two young men
killed in tbe wreck near Griffith siding
on July Oth, took place yesterday
afternoon from Selkirk Hall. Tbe
service in tne hall conducted by Rev,
W. C. Calder, assisled by Rev. T. W.
Hall, was u most impressive ono, The
two collins strewn with llowers were
placed lengthwise to the platform, a
table covered with wreaths between
them, and were in themselves un awe-
inepiring sight; for it is happily seldom in RevelBtoke that two arc borne
to tbe grave iu the same hour and
from the same place. The ball was
thronged with sympathisers, and the
Oddfellows aud members of the
Brotherhoods ol Locomotive Firemen
and F.ngineers were present iu large
numbers iu luneral attire.
Rev. Mr. Calder spoke toiicbingly ol
the solemn lesson imparted by tin
sudden blotting out ol two young
lives. He said that for five or Bix
years past most of those who had thus
been taken away were members ol his
own congregation, which was largely
composed ol railway men. One of the
deceased was a native of bis own province as well as an adherent of hie
church, and the other was born in the
land ot bis forefathers. He spoke of
tbeir sympathy for the young widow,
whom he had seen grow up (rom girlhood niinuig them. Less than two
years ago he had performed the cere
mony that hud made her the wife of
one of the men nuw lying cold in
death before them. Their hearts
would all go out to her in her alllic-
tion, antl it should leach everyone so
to live that whenever the call should
come tbey would be ready to answer it
Prayer was offered by the Kev. Mr
Hall, and tbe congregation joined in
singing "Nearer my God to Tbee."
Tbe procession was then formed witb
the Oddfellows and Trainmen leading,
and tbe two hearses and about twelve
other vehicles, loaded with friends ol
the deceased lollowing. At the cemetery the double interment took place
with tbe solemn and beautiful rites
ol   tbe   Order  of   Oddlellows and the
Brotherhood ol Engineers and Fire
men. The pallbearers lor Dewar were
chosen Irom the Oddfellows and the
Engineers,and the Firemen performed

Courthouse, Kevelstoke—If    ,0111).
Zbc fl&afMberafo
WEDNESDAY, JULY  11, 190!)
The necessity ior the establishment oi a land registry ollice at
Kevelsloke wus pressed upon Premier McBride during his recent
visit, and the need of a courthouse
in connection with it was urged by
the Board of Trade at its meeting
last Thursday night, Kaslo, Fernie, Cranbrook and other points are
each having new brick and stone
courthouses built, and as Kevelstoke is as important as any ol
these places, its claim.- should be
considered: more particularly in
view of the advice of the public
works engineer, when lie told
tht government agent to waste no
more money in repairing the present antiquated and dilapidated
shed on the hilltop. While justice
do-s not r'-ide in brick and stone
the blind goddes? ol the eword and
scales ban always been enveloped
witb :i certain amount ol religious
reveren • n thi • >■- of the British
people, and they have Bought to
enshrine her in temples worthy ol
bi r high degree,    We  do not  Bay
.-• ■ i- v.. .. be administered better
iti a brick than in a wooden court-
si but we do claim lhat there
i_i something to the eye more consonant with th*- liritish idea ol
justice in a solid, permanent -truc-
ture than in a temporary wooden
shack, Apart Irom this, however,
it is evident that the lime has
come when a choice must be made
between patching and tinkering at
the present building nr erecting
another that will la-t. It seems to
us that the first cost, though heavy,
will be lietter than a constant
dribbling with unsatisfactory re-
■•ulte: and this is clearly a case in
which the dearest Article would
prove cheapest in the end.
'I'he building of a new courthouse
would at tbe (same time pave the
way for tbe establishment of u land
registry ollice at tbis point, because
in the new (Structure il would be
easy to make provision for it    '1 bu
Tbr question of the establishment
of a land registry ollice, though
involved in tbe latest hoard of trade
proposal with that of a new Courthouse, is really a separate matter
as tar as the merits go. To register
a mortgage or a deed the citizen of
Rovelstoke is compelled to send to
Nelson, a distance of 18U miles.
Naturally the business at so great
a distance has to be done almost
wholly by mail with most unsatisfactory results. A man wishes to
sell a piece of property and give the
title and get the money in order
perhaps to take a journey to lhe
east or to the Old Country, or
to make an immediate investment elsewhere; but he finds his
plans baulked by a wait of six
months or more before he can get a
certilicate of title from the distant
registry ollice. Another case is
cited in which an agent procured
money to loan on a property for
which the owner assured him that
be bad a clear title, but after a
month or two of correspondence
and passing to and fro it was found
that a lis pendens bad been filed
against it. Again, cases have been
qouted in which owners have attempted to raise money by nnirt
gage, and have been compelled to
wait months In-fore a certilicate of
incumbrance could be obtained.
Possibly these things are not due
to the fault of the land registry
ollice, where the help may be insufficient to enable them to keep up
with the work, but it i- e\
that if the person who wished to
register a title or ascertain
the standing oi one i ould go per-

pigeonholed away down among the

Anyone in Kit-Id for example wishing lo register a title must send lo
Nelson, a distance of over 800
miles, whore the sume service could
be performed at Revelstoke a distance of one hundred and sixty
miles. Golden, only 96 miles
distant, must now semi 278 miles.
Moreover, a land registry ollice nl
Kevelstoke would be more convenient to the whole Okanagan valley
than is that at Kamloops to which
tbey must at present apply. When
they strike the main line at Sicamous tbey must travel SI miles to
Kamloops, where 45 miles would
bring tbem to Kevelstoke. A Registry ollice at this point, therefore,
would prove more convenient for
all people for an indefinite distance
to the north, as far south as Nakusp, us far east as the boundary
of Alberta, and as far west as Sicamous or Salmon Arm. When it is
considered that in serving this
large territory it would at the same
time lighten tbe work of the Nelson
ollice, and enable the people of
South Kootenay to have a more
satisfactory service, it will be seen
that the request for the establishment of a land registry office is not
only reasonable, but that it is a
vital necessity for this growing
portion of Uritish Columbia.
In the latest issue of the Kamloops Standard appears an article
under the above heading well
worthy of perusal by any thoughtful citizen. Its opinions of tbe
political tactics of a local organ
here, though coming from an outside source, are, we believe, but an
echo of the opinion of all citizens
of Revelstoke who do not allow
partisan zeal to run away with
discretion. The paper that puts
party passion first and relegates
the welfare ol its own locality to a
secondary position, certainly does
the district no service, and in tbe
end does nothing but barm to its
own party.

Tbis is not the first, instance by
any means thai the Observer bus
been guilty of nn offence of this
character, for almost, every issues
brings further evidence of the
partizan feeling tbat animates man
who directs it. Rut rabid parti-
zanship can breed nothing but ev 1
and is destructive both to parly
and national good. If the editor
ol the Revelsloke Observer think
that ho is rendering service when
ho indulges in these Hellish and
sinister methods be is far amiss for
be is working harm to himself and
to bis party. What little prestige
he may have owned will he undermined anil ultimately he will lind
himself despised by his own and
Bcorned by all othere."
The proposal nf Mayor Lindmark
that nil buildings in the city should
be connected with the sewers from
tbe street line to the plumbing, by
the oity itself,and repayment made
on a five years' frontage lax by
piopertV-owners, is one that comes
closely home lo many citizens. It
seems to ns lhat there wns merit in
the observation of Aid. Kimberley
that when a man wished lo dig for
bis own sewer be should be allowed
to do so, and thus save himself
expense. Probably lhe better plan
would be for the city to provide
and lay the pipes, und allow tbe
property-owners to get tbe digging
done as tbey pleased so long as il
was satisfactory to tbe oity inspector. This won id enable the
man who wished to economise by
digging tlie drain himself in bis
spare time to do so, nntl it would
work no hardship on others, since
those who would not care to do tin-
work themselves would generally be
in a position to pay someone else.
We would recommend our readers to peruse the thoughtful letter
signed "Citizen" which appears in
another column. Revelstoke is
essentially a railway town, and if
some ariangement could be reached
with tbe C. P. K. Company which
would facilitate their work here
and encourage them to increase
tlieir working staff, the whole town
would benefit. Certainly it is to
be desired that both corporations
should work in harmony, even if
some concessions are required to
accomplish that end.

Another "Sunshine" Feature
This U an entirely new idea, and will especially interest people who reside in natural
gmm districts. The gas ring takes the place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making
it possible to burn gas in your furnace without
inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should the gas give out, a coal or wood
fire could not be started until the g.ts pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in the summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with ;i
nickelled sleel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
eopper-plated. This special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chill
iron could possibly give, acts as protection
for the bolls, rivets and rods from Inroads of
gas. When cast iron conies in contact wilh
our nickelled steel it is coined with our special
Anti-Rust treatment, which prevents the
slightest possibility of rust commencing
anywhere in Sunshine Furnace.

The City and The C. P, R,
Kilitor Mill. Hbhii.I).
Sir,—Tbe present autumn, inaugurating as it does the shipping of Alberta wheat westward over lhe "A B C"
route, Bhould mean much to Rjvel-
sioke, the most important divisional
point on the main line of the C,P.K.
between Calgsry and Vancouver.
It is very greatly to be regretted
that some years ago tbe city and the
railway authorities failed to agree in
the matter of a supply of electric
power for the local shops. RevelBtoke
has been teeling the effects of that
failure ever since. In eaBtern Canada
towns not nearly as large aa Reveletoke are only too glad to give large
cash bonuses, besides free water and
light and exemption from taxation lor
a term of years, in order to Becure
industries that do not mean half ns
much to them as au increase of a
hundred or two hundred men on the
stall' ol the shops, coupled with the
go tl-will of the ollicials, would mean
to us. It is all very well to say, as
has been said in the paat, lhat the C.
P. R. must maintain shopB here anyway and that we would be foolish to
grant them any concessions. Everyone knows tbat it is a comparatively
easy matter for a railway company to
move its rolling stock a hundred
miles or so, and even a "dead" engine
can be hauled to Calgary or Vancouver
for repairs without very much expense
to the oom pony. Practically the only
factor which they have to consider in
such a case is the matter ol delay.
In view, theiefore, ol tbe increased
convenience and saving ol time that
would result to the railway company
and of the many benefits that would
accrue to Ihe city, it would seem that
tbe old policy of antagonism should
give way to one ol a better aud broauer
understanding between tbe two corporations. If the working staff of
the shops cuuld be increased by one
htindrei or two hundred men, il an
equitable distributing rate could be
secured fur Reveletoke, il the grounds
about the depot could be beaulilied, if
the city could be given the opportunity ol adequately advertising its excellent natural resources and attraction!: in the printed matter i.-sued by
the cumpany Irom time to time, and
if steps could be taken jointly that
wauld have the effect of inducing a
larger percentage of tourists than at
present to stay over in our ciiy for a
few days wbile ou their way through
tbe mountains, would Dot all these
amply repay the city tor dealing very
liberally with tbe railway company in
the matter ot light aud power, aud
even, perhaps, in the mattei ol
Might 1 suggest that the City Council and the Board ol Trade give these
matters their serious codeidcration
and try to bring about eome results

Orange Church Parade
On Sunday evening the local Orange
lodge some thirty strong, paraded iu
full regalia to St. Andrews church.
The paBtor, Rev. W. C. Calder, preached a strong sermon appropriate to the
occasion. Rev. Mr. Calder did not
mince his words at all, but said plainly that in his opinion the existence of
the Oranger order was made necessary
by the political aims ol the Church of
Rome. While he protessed no emnily
to that powerful organization it was
plain that they were aiming at the
supreme control of the whole continent ol North America. He roundly
condemned Sir Wilfrid Laurier for
truckling to the papacy in saddling
separate schools on Alberta and Saskatchewan, and declared tbat the same
hand was still at work in extending
the northern boundaries of (Quebec to
include a portion ol Ungava, aud in
refusing tu include Keewatin within
the b.iundaries ol Manitoba where a
national school system prevailed.
After the service the brethren paraded back to their lodgoroom, where
a vote of thanks was unanimously
passed to the Rev. Mr. Calder for his
stirring discourse. A psstmsBter'e
jewel wsb also presented to Bro. J. H.
Armstrong in recognition of hie valuable services to the cause.

Collier'fl Weekly, the Scientilic American and other well known eastern
magazines, and former Kootenay newspaper man was a visitor in Revelstoke
last week end. He has been a frequent
visitor to British Columbia of late
yi 'in h and expressed great faith in tbe
possibilities of RevelBtoke.
"Vou have here," he said looking
Irom the front verandah of the Hotel
Revelstoke down the green expanse of
the Columbia valley, "a country thai
il properly developed should support a
0 ty of   20,000.people.     Take the city
01 Spokane. All tbe land around
tbere has been cleared and planted
and they have to irrigate, tint it has
built up tbe town. If you had the
bush cleared off these valleys, you
ought here to be able to grow as good
Iruit as anywhere in the world and
you   don't   have to irrigate.    Land is
needed—it is becoming valuable all
over the world. lt simply irritates
me to come through here year alter
year and see wild trees growing where
there ought to be fruit trees. 1 am
glad tu see that they are doing something in Kootenay. Vou people here
want to wake up. Why by this time
you ought to have a settled country
and a trolley car line running between
here and the Arrow lakes."
The interviewer pointed out that
the country was still young, and in
the past the atteniion of the people
bad been chiefly directed to timber
and mines.
"That iB all right," said Mr. O'Farrell, "but you will never have a great
country without agriculture. Why,
1 find that my hotelkeeper is using
butter made in Alberta, while there in
the list kind of dairying land lying
right nt our feet. The town should
wake up and try tu develop the surrounding country, and tbe city would
take care of itself."
Mr. O'Farrell, who was travelling
with James G. Blaine of New York,
left for lhe coast Saturday afternoon.
Government Annuities
It is all too little to know that
the government of the dominion haB
provided a plan whereby any citizen
ol Canada, may lor a small sum paid
weekly purchase an annuity that will
render anyone independent of clnirity
io old age. The scheme originated
with Sir Richard Cartwright and is
carried out through the agency of the
department of trade and commerce.
A young man starting at the age ol
twenty to pay 25 cents a week into
the annuity funds, would at the age
of 55 be entitled to draw $85.58 annually, or il he let it go till he was sixty
he could draw $120 01 each year, at
sixty-tivc he could draw $203 and at
seventy would be entitled to$336 yearly. For lemales the ratio is slightly
different, but the system is t he same.
Larger weekly payments will in eacli
case Becure larger annuities iu proportion. Payments may be made yearly,
half yearly or quarterly as desired. If
the pcisiin paying in should die beljre
tbe annuity becomes due the contributions with three per cent interest
would be returned to tbe heirs. The
amount of contribution is of course
increased as age advances. Too much
praise cannot he given this scheme
tbat teaches the people to be providi nt.
and Bell-helping. While the British
governmtnt places a premium on
thriltlcBsness and hand to mouth
living by its system of old age pensions, this scheme gives to every workingman and woman in Canada an
opportunity to Becure by small contributions, a sum at least sullicient to
keep them from want in old age. Full
information aB to the working ol this
schanie can be obtained from 8. T.
Hastedo, Superintendent ol Canadian
Government annuities, Department ol
Trade and Commerce, Ottawa.
