Local Brethren Institute Lodge
at Salmon Arm
T-esday, Sept. 15, 1908, will ever be
remembered in the history of Salmon
Arm, fur on that day a lodge of the
I 0.0.P. was duly instituted by W. W.
Foster, L) D.Q.M., who was accompanied by the Degree Team and several veterans uf Selkirk Lodge, No. 12.
The new luilge is called 611. Ida Lodge.
I'pon their arrival, the visiting
bretheni were received in a most cordial milliner and having dined they
proceded to Eureka Hall where the I).
D.U.M., assisled by several Past
Uriinil-, with due solemnity instituted
the new luilge and installed the following ollicers:—Bro. Oibbard, N.O.;
Bro. Carrol, VU; Bro. Ruth, Sec*
Bro. Eckland, Tress., and Bro. Bonis,
Progress having been made thus far,
the newly installed N. O. invited all
to attend him to the banqueting ball.
Here a most pleasant hour was spent
and good-fellowship reigned supreme,
while the delicacies so tastefully prepared weie enjoyed to tbe utmost.
But as work was not yet finished festivities were soon set aside.
Retiring to the lodge ruom thu Revelstoke. members took charge, and the
Degree Team, in that characteristic
manner which has wun so favorable a
name for Selkirk Lodge, conferred tbe
several degrees to ten new members.
The manner in which the work was
put on will undoubtedly leave a lasting inipie=eiiui with those who Baw it
for the first time and also have a beneficial   ffect on the new lodge.
While day was dawning, the young
lodge held its first business meeting
and the despatch and intelligence
shown was most creditable. At the
close of the meeting D.D.G.M. Poster
gave a furceable and eloquent address
well suited ti the occasion. The visiting bretheni returned on tbe morning
train, physically weary, but conscious
ol having performed a pleasant duty.
Laborer has Both Legs Severed
by Train.
Charlie Francians, foreman of a
working gang st the 12th crossing
bridge on the C.P.R., was run over by
No. 2 early this week, while walking
on the track. It appears that Fran
cians was on his wiy to the cars of the
construction train, when the passenger
train overtook him, and before he
could get clear of the metals the engine struck bim, knocking him down
and crushing him beneath the wheels,
both his legs being cut off. The en-
gineer. when the accident was imminent, put nn the emergency brakes and
brought his train to a standstill in a
few feet.
The injured man was conveyed as
quickly as possible to lllecillewaet,
where an engine was procured and he
was taken to the Revelstoke hospital
where he died later from the severe
shuck and loss of blood.
An inquest was held by Coroner
Hamilton, and a verdict returned of
accidental death, blame being attached
to no one. It is supposed lhat the
man, who at the time uf the accident
was on the outside edge of the ties
was under ihe inlluence uf liquor and
failed to note the trains approach.
The regular meeting of the city
council was held last night with Mayor
Lindmark aud Aldermen Foote, Woodland, Sawyer and Lefeaux present.

Valuable Mineral Claims
Gus Hedstrum returned on Thursday night from Queen Charlotte Island
on the Pacific coast where he has been
locating mineral properties. On being
asked as to his opinion on the value
of the oae properties at Tasoo Harbor,
which properties are owned by Messrs.
A. (.lowing of Trout Lake, T. Taylor,
M.P.P., and P. C. Elliott, both of this
city, he informed tbe Maii.-IIkkalu
that this property, in his opinion wai
one of tbe best things in the west and
one of the most promising locations

stated that these showed $32 in gold
and $30 copper, and he eaid moreover
that the ore was being worked and
■hipped to the Ladysmith smelter fur
$1.75 a ton. There were other valuable properties on the islands all of

American Paper Manufacturer
Wants Duty Removed
ArPLETON, Wis, September 18 —
" Because raw material is much
cheaper in Cun idu, an.I labur is considerably cheaper we would have to
go out of bus.nets if tbe tariff on
wood pulp were to he cut off, unless
we would obtain higher prices for our

of Uangor, Maine, inunuger of the
Kalalidin Pulp and Paper Company,
al Lincoln, Mu., before tho Congrcss-
innul Investigation Committee.

we can get nut material as cheaply as
the Canadian mills do we would have

" Tho only thing I sec to do," said
Mr. Jones, "is In make a treaty with

J. A. Macdonell Fought Bear for
Possession of Child
James A. Macdonell, head of the ei •
gineering firm of Macdonell, Gzotvski
4 Company, ie the hero of the hour in
the Rocky Mountain rogiuua ttday;
Like David of old he fought single-
handed with a bear, and though be did
nut kill tbe beast he saved the life of
a child.
Last Friday evening Mr Macdonell
was* standing on the platform nt Field,
where he is superintending the regrade
of the Big Hill. On the 0 P.K. hotel
grounds near hy, a black pet heir was
moving out to tb. end of its tether
and then hack towards the dug-out in
which it lived. Near the bear the
eight-year-old son of William Lynea,
a C.P 11. conductor, formerly of Revel
stoke, was playing. Suddenly the
bear pounced on the lad, and ran back
with him into his den.
Mr. Macdonell ran to the opening
and, grasping the bear's chain, began
to pull the bear out. He is a hig,
athletic mun, and, in spite of the
bear's resistance, drew it steadily
towards the opening, Finally the enraged beast shot through the hole and
attacked Mr. Macdonell. The latter
in his turn, f slight for possession of
Ihe child ami having secured it, got
clear ot the bear,
The animal was stibsiquently shut,
hut Mr, Maodonell will carry the mark
of the beast's claws on his arm and
bauds for mam a long day.
