Two C.P.R. Passenger Trains
Crash Together
Four WlLLIAU, July 28—The disastrous Cliaplenu wreck winch occurred on tlie C.P.R. about a year ago,
and which was the most calamitous
that ever took place on the system,
came within a hair's breadth of being
duplicated yesterday morning at Jack
Fish Bay, 147 miles east of here, by
the collision of I wo passenger sections
of transcontinental train No. 1, coming from the east and bound for Van-
c sliver. That it waB not one of the
most fatal that ever occurred 011 the
company's lines can he classed as nn
event bordering on the miraculous.
A. it was one passenger wsb killed, J.
McCorruick, a tourist from Belfast,
Ireland, who was on his way to Lethbridge, Alberta,
The engine of tbe second section
crashed into tbe rear of the first train,
ramming tlie caboose and crowded
tourist passenger car, smashing the
cur to splinters, and ripping up the
track and ties for about twenty yards.
McCormick wsb evidently standing on
the rear of the coacli when the collision occurred aud death was instantaneous.
Engineer Evans and the fireman of
the second section jumped before the
collision 1 ccurred and b ith were painfully, but not seriously injured.
The cause cf the wreck was the
ditching of a freight train which occurred on Sunday at l'ringle, 422 miles
weat of Nurtb Bay, when eighteen cars
were piled up owing to a sunken rail.
The C.P.R. triinsc ntitientnl was dc
layed in consequence und as soon ss
possible, prnc.eileil west in two sections.
The first division stopped at Hemlo,
four miles weBt and the second section
was closely following and crashed into

Westminster Wins a Brilliant
Game of 6 to 2
Mile End Montreal, July 28.—
New Westminster wns given n great
reception when the players stepped
out on the field. The players had a
confident air about them, but the
supporters of the Shamrocks could
see nothing but victory looming up
before them.
The play started off much faster
than in the first game, and for th
first ten minutes the play wns very
rapid. The Westminster boys were
very aggressive and their speed showed
to much more advantage ou the fast
turf. The Shamrocks were slow to
get going and the early part of the
game was all Westminster.
Old Alex Tiirnbiill made the hearts
of the Westminster rooters glud when
he started the scoring after seven
minutes of brilliant play, going in and
beating Kavanagh with a beautiful
Tbe ball was faced and Westminster
scored again almost before tho crowd
knew that the play was on again.
lirys ni iiiil the trick, and dashing iu
on the not without a moment's hesitation. Il only took fifteen Bcconds
to score the goal.
Shamrocks appeared to be d.iz/.led
by the shifty t.ictics of the cluillengois
and for a few moments the defenders
wer up in tho air, Westminster
attacked again and again, and in just
ono minute Bryson put in lhe third
goal of the game, making it three
straight for the Westerners,
After the face the Royals kept up
their aggressive work, but the Shamrock defence held them out, and the
tenuis settled down fur a had game.
Shamrocks improved steadily and
dually Heunessy broke away with the
ball. He elud.d his check and sent
in a quick shot which beat the guardian of the Westminster net and gave
the Shamrocks tbeir first score, just
abuut fourteen minutes after the start,
Tbe speedy home of tbe westerners
were always aggressive, but their defence kept close to the net nnd the
Shamrock's home men with all tbeir
tricks c.uild not. get by lliein for the
balance of Ihe quarter, which • tided
with the score 3 to 1,
After 15 minutes tit hard gruelling
Feeney drove in a shut that nu goal-
tender had a chance 11 stop, and the
score was 4 to 1.
The rein.iindi r of tlio interval mm
hard work continued, the Shamrocks
being unable to break lhe visitor's
defence and half lime  ca.,10   with   the
-cure unchanged.
In tie third quarter honors were
nliniil even bul hy fast work the
Shamrocks secured their sec md  goal.
For the balance of tho third quarter
the play was bird and the players
found tile pace a killit g one. Both
teams weie goiug their limit, but the
defence men of buth toams were on
their metal and staved oft' all atlacks
successfully, tbe quarter ending with
the score of 4 to 2.
The lust quarter was tlie hottest of
ttie mutch. The Shamrocks were
striving their utnr st lo even up the
score and save the Cup, but the fast
westerners had plenty in reserve and
were going strong all the way.
Great interest was nniniffstcd locally
in this game yesterday, and the public
will lie pleased to know that Charlie
Latham, who has done ho much for
lacrosse in Ruvolstoke, figured on the
line-up and scured one cf the goals
which won thu game (or the westerners. Another interesting feature of
the Westminster line-up is the fact
that four other members thereof have
played one or two seasons with the
local team, vi/.., Tom Rcnnie, Bryson,
W. Turnbull and Spring.
Premier McBride Has No Intention of Entering Federal Field
New  Westminster,   July    28.—
" There is absolutely nothing to it. I
authorise you to give tha rumor an
unqualified denial," answered Hon.
Richard McBride yesterday when
questioned rogarding the truth of the
story circulated to the effect that he
was to resign from Provincial politics
and entei tho Federal arena in opposition to Hon. William Templeman at
Victoria The Premier further stated
that he had not been asked to accept
ihe nomination, and that he would
not even consider the proposition if
he were approached. He intimated
that it was quite probable that he
would tour the east in the interests of
the Conservative Party before the next
Dominion elections.
Facilities for Handling Grain at
Fort William.
Four William, Ont, July 28.—
I'rospectB for a rush fall were never
better in Fort William than at the
present, timo. With only 80 mileB of
tho double tracking between bote and
Winnipeg tn complete, the C. 1'. H. is
preparing to move a greater amount of
wheat this fall than ever beforo in its
own history, and will no doubt break
all previous records in handling grain.
In the fall of 1908 the 0 P. R. made a
record of moving an average of 404
cars per day for 77 days, a font never
beforo nor since equalled un this or
any other sido track railway in the
world. With M0 miles of the same
road double tracked this fall the officials of the company are looking forward to moving G00 cars per day, and
one of tbe high ollicials ol tlie western
lineB was heard to Bay only recently
that if there were not nn average
movement of 600 cars daily between
Fort William and Winnipeg for a time
equal to 77 days be might reasonably
expect to see another man filling bis
Tho C. P. lt, is tbis year spending
$250,000 in improving ihe terminals
here, and still it is not content. Plans
for an entire rearrangement of the
terminal facilities at this port tire now
in the hands of the r perming oflicinls
that will still more ban double tlie
capacity, and iB estimated to be equal
to handling the wheat crop of westeern
Canada for 30 years.
Mechanics all Unite to Fight to
Bitter End
Winnipeg July 28.—The International Machinists' Union will resist
the abrogation of tlie agreement now
in force with the Canadian Pacific
railway or any reduction in wages to
the bitter end. This movement was
decided upon by 15 delegates of the
Northwestern Consolidated of the district, union in a meeting on Saturday.
They represented 6000 machinists
employed an all of the 36 American

Union Pacific system. The union's
c.iiiletition is thai if any road made a
-uccessfiil effort tu change the present
working condition., other roods wi uld
be certain to undertake the same ex-
pi riment.

To talk annul Ihe ro-t uf as.
The Bupply ol electric  power in
the city for industrial purposes
marki another epoch in tlie development of municipal enterprise.
The value of the water and light
plant to tiie city corporation has
been fully demonstrated and proof
conclusive of the wise transaction
made by the city with former owners of the plant. The question of
municipal ownership of public
u,:!!ti_s tbas been hequently discussed and its advantages and disadvantages looked at from every
point of view. In the case of the
water and light plant it was bought
for the use of the citizens ami not
entirely as a revenue producer.
Many and loud have been the complaint? against the rates levied.
There is this to be considered, however, that the money derived from
the sale of water and ,;ght belongs
to the civic treasury and must of
necessity be further employed on
city work, whereas on the other
hand a private-owned concern
would invariably put the money
made out of the business into tbeir
pockets, for probablyjother schemes
and investment.- otit.-ide of the city
altogether. The proceeds from the
local plant have helped considerably in the maintaining of education and other valuable institutions
while a large' amount of civic
pnblio'works has come out of that
source. The public, however, are
up against the chances of bad
municipal administration due to
the fact that its business "may be
carried on ,by "elected boards of
aldermen or councilors. Incompetent and inefficient, The plan
which places the responsibility and
conduct of civic expenditures on
competent, expert officials instead
of in the hands of elected councillors who seldom have suflicietit
knowledge or practical experience
is certainly one that appeah to
common senp_. We now question
whether this plan would meet with
general approval of all citizens,
but municipal ownership is a
scheme   which   appears   practical
As will be seen in other columns
of tliis issue, two  by laws  are now
before the people   for  their consideration to be either turned down or
accepted.     In the one case that  of
lhe raising of  money  for   tho purpose  of  installing  a  new and improved system of lire alarms thru'-
out the city, cannot   but appeal to
the   citizens   as   11    whole.      Our
greatest   enemy    today is lire, and
although   we   have,   up   till now,
loen content to   use   a   system   of
alarms that, was more or less satisfactory, Revelstoke   has outgrown
the system now in use, the arrangement of which makes it impossible
for its extension, and public safety
demands more adequate protection.
The new alarm system  if installed
will be of   the   very latest pattern
and reliable; and what is more, can
be   added  to from timo to time as
the requirements of a growing com
munity demand.     Details down to
a fine point   have  been worked out
and   the   whole system embracing
each end of tht'city can be installed
at a cost which, not in itself extravagant   yet   amply    sufficient   to
cover   all   estimates.     The money
thus to lie raiseil by debentures, on
tlie vote  of   the people un August
sib, will   be  well  spent, and   the
public   should     be    long-sighted
enough to Bee that by empowering
the city  council to secure ihi- new
system, their property   will  be yet
mure enhance,!  in vi , aa   the Special Conditions By the Edu-
risks of lire arc decreased. .,      _

<J On the upward climb, that which helps most
is reading good books and buying good things—
buying the shoes that are made right and wear
right.        They pay dividends.
q The SLATER SHOE looks new always, tor
it's real leather all the way through—and at
$5.00 it's cheaper than a cheap shoe. With
leather going sky-high in price, you want the
shoe that is stamped with the plain price and
backed by the Seal of Certainty.
^ $4.00 is tin' dividing line betwrrn good shoes and cheap shoes;
for good leather costs good money.
fl To a worker the Slater Shoe is the cheapest shoe.
