The Foreman and Cook Give
Their Versions of the
Affair.
Editor Miner.���In justice to Mr. B.
Cortiana and the foreman of the Molly
Gibson mine I think I should tell
what 1 know abont the snow slide on
the Achille group, which is situated a
mile or more above and beyond the
Molly Gibson.
The first anyono knew of it waB
when tho man (liris Sherbert came to
the Molly Gibsou. I havo read his
statement in The Miner and I must
say that his story is very far from the
truth, and I feel that the facts should
be mado public. A man was sighted
coming over the hill, ami Louis
Cortiana sent a man to see if he waB
all right, or needed any help. Thinking the man was getting along all
right only waB taking his timo thc
miner wont back. Everyone knows
how impossible it is to see distinct!}'
when the enow is blowing, and lie
coula not see that the man was in distress. Chris Sherooit anived here
about 1 o'clook, soon after lie was first
sighted. All the men wero in the
mine nt the time, except throe night
shift men. Sherbert told us that his
partner was alive that moruing and
wanted us to go at once and dig hiin
out. The foreman thought it impossible that the man could be alive as it
had started to bluw and drift, but
Chris insisted tbat ho was, hnving
heard him while he was clawing out.
The foreman at onco went into the
mine to get the men together, and as-
soon as possible he and ten men
started for the Achille. . Sherbert
stated to me that there was at least
twenty foet of snow over the cabin,
but 1 knew that there oould not have
been so much, for tho men dug only
about twenty minutes, and Lowden I
think could have been got out alive if
Sherboit had mado any effort at all to
holp him. The nien as soon as they
got thoro pulled out a plank whieh
stuck up in the snow, releasing the
dog, who then crawled out of tho same
hole thut Chris did, and the dog and
Lowden weio very close togother. The
men dug Lowdon out, and finding
that be was dead wrapped him
iu blankets and left him there,
for they did not know what tho law of
the country was. Sherbert says that
bu started back up the hill, but got
played out. Re never left the Molly
Gibson bunk house until he started
for Nelson. When the men got back
he was mad because thoy had not
brougth tho body. The men then told
him that tliey would go back in tho
morning if he would tako tho responsibility. Then whon morning came
Sherbert ohanged his mind, and said
that when he got to Nelson hu would
inform the authorities,and thoy would
look after tho disposal of the body.
The men had all gone into the
mine  to   work   when   I told Sherbert
that I thought it was a disgrace to the
white race to leave a man and dug
them liko that. Thc dog had stayed
all night with tho body, lie said: "I
don't cure about tlio dog; he don't
amount to anything" Wc didn't think
that way, and induced him to have
tho men go back after the bouy. Then
Sherbert said he would ngreu to pay
the inon one hundred dollars for their
time. No one suid anything to him
about any pay. Many of this crowd
might not be able to speak the
English language very well, but I
never knew men try to do moro for
anyone than they did. Thoy fed him
and gavo him clothes, und in fact did
all that man ciuld do for unothor. Foi
him to say that ho was packed down
with snow, and seaicely had room to
turn seems strange, for he told us that
he could have lived in there for days,
und that he did actually go to sleep
there after the slide cam' down, which
is pretty evident as he did uot airive
at the Molly Gibson until 1 o'clock
p.m. Only about throe feet of snow
covered Sherbert, and over Lowden
ub about four or five, not moro, and
ho conld have been got out with very
little help. j
lie states he bnd trouble to make t tu- J
inhumanity goeB, Sherbert says himself he could hear Lowden and the
dog, but mado no attempt to get them
out. Lowdeu was found sitting on
tho iluor of the bunk witb his head on
bis arm, leaning against his bunk,
and had lots of room around bim. It
was a big surprise to all that saw him
how ho did uot escapo, with the space
around bim.    Yours truly,
FRANK MURUY,
Cook Molly Gibson mine.
CORTUNA'S STATEMENT.
Editor Miner,���In reading your
paper 1 notice an article on the llith
inst, also an editorial in this morn
ing's issue, ro tne snowslide on
Kokanee mountain which resulted in
the deaih of Fred Lowden and injuries
to Chris Sherbert, in which my
brother, myself and men come in for
quite a lot of criticism. I intended
writing you our statement of the case
yesterday, but wished to get all tbe
facts of tbo ease together first.
Tlic following is what occurred:
At 1 p.m. last Monday, the 10th inst.,
onu of our mon beard Sucrbert coming
down the mountain yelling. This
mm. immediately started out to help
him, but going up is not as easy us
coming down. The man went up
about 1100 feet and seeing that Sherbert kept coming down all the time
towards him, returned to the camp.
All tho ineu wore in tlie mino working. As soon as Sherbert arrived at
the camp, immediatly the cook, his
wife, and another man who was ill,
proceeded to care for him. At tlia
same lime my brother arrived on the
scene at tho camp, and Sherbert told
him that his companion (Lowden)
was bin iud under thu snow and to get
to the rescue instantly. On hearing
tliis ray brother without the slightest
hesitation, took every man from the
mine and went to the rescue of Lowden, This was done without any discussion with Sherbert as to recom-
pensatiou, etc. Sherbert was left to
be cared for by the Mok and his wile.
At 2.30 p. m. Lowden's body was
found dead, about four or five feet of
snow over him. My brother thinking
there was another man in the cabin
he and his men worked 6teadily till
about 7.30 p. m, when darkness coming on, thoy returned to the camp,
leaving Lowden's dead body wrapped
up in blanketB,believing it was strictly against the law to move a dead
body under such circumstances until
the coroner had arrived on the scene.
My brother and men on arriving at
tlie camp wore asked by Sherbert as to
Lowden, ho told him (Sherbert) that
they had located him (Lowden) about
2,30 p.m. and that he was dead, but I
did not find the other (thinking thero
was another mnn still not found). 1
said: It is now dark and tho weather
is very bad and it is almost useless to
try to do anything tonight, we will
return iu the morning. Sherbert then
asked my brother, "what quantity of
snow did you find over the cabin:"
My brother replied, "At the place
where you got out thero is about three
feet of snow, and where Lowden is
there is from four to five feet." Sherbert then said to my brother, "If any
one asks you tell them there was 20
foet of suow over it. Go nnd get
Lowden's body nnd bring it hero no
mutter at what cost to me." My
brother then told him it was next to
impossible to do so, it wus night nnd
the weather very bad, besides it would
bo at a risk of losing all my men,
he also stated that Lowden's body
should not bo removed according to
law. Shorbort thou said: "1 will
take all tho responsibility, go and
bring Lowden hero."
This was simply next to impossible
owing to weather conditions existing
at the timo.
Next morning five men staited out
to get Lowden's body, and returned
nhout 12.30 p.m. or tlieitaboutB. On
hearing that the body had arrived
near tho tram, I stopped the teams
(whioh are ongaged in hauling ore,
supplies, etc.) iu order that they
would be in readiness to start for
NelBon with Sherbert, and Lowden's
dead body. I immediately had the
tram started in order to bring down
Lowden's body and Sherbert to the
end of thc tram whore teams were in
readiness to start down to Nelson.     I

London, March 14.���Tho beautiful
spring weather of the past few days
changed this afternoon to a heavy
downpour which continued throughout the evening and which quite
spoiled as far as the general public
was concerned the spectacle of the
king's court. In spits of the blinding
rain which turned the roads to quagmires and hid tbe entrance of the
palace in blurred mist the constant
stream of arriving carriages was
watched by a large crowd which
cheered most loyally when Their
Majesties in state ooachesand escorted
by officers of the Life Guards clattered
along the Mall and passed into the
palace, the guard of honor giving the
Royal salute and tho grenadiers' band
sationed in the court yard playing the
national antnem. Their Majesties
were bowing all along tbo routo but
in common with the occupants of the
other carriages they could scarcely be
recognized through the rain.
Once inside their palace the contrast
was most striking. Nothing so brilliant has been seen since tbe early
days of the reign of tbe late Queen
Victoria. Tbe blaze of new electric
lights, the scent of flowers heaped
along the corridors,the glitter of ladies
jewels and dresses and the court uniforms made a memorial and magnificent scene. King Edward's private
band played in a gallery of the ball
room where the couri'was helc.
Their majesties stood simply and
without a dais at ono curl of tlie loom
and a few paces in Front of tbe loyal
circle which included the Prince aud
Princesi of Wales while further back
were ranged other royal personages.
The breast of King Edward was
blazing with orders and stars and he
looked to be in the best of health and
spirits. Queen Alexandiia wore a
golden yellow dress embroidered with
irises; rows of pearls hung from her
neck and she wore a riaiuty diamond
crown. The queen stood throughout
the fatiguing ceremony graciously
smiling. Tho Princess of Wales was
attired in white and silverd and the
other princesses wero robed in white.
On one side of Their Majesties stood
a biilliant group ot ambassadors and
diplomats and ladies displaying
georgous dresses and jewels ; on the
other side stood tho mnmbers of the
royal householn. King Edward received tho guests according to preeedenco
and afterwards moved freely among
tho brilliant company. An infoimal
supper was served after lho reception
and the court continued until midnight.
SCHOOL BOARD.
Tho regular meeting of tlie school
board waa held last ovening at the
office of the seoretary. The miuutes
of the last meeting were read and
adopted. Considoiahlc discussion
followed on the buying of materials
for the science class at the High
school. All thu members (ult that
this was a most Important department

Indignantly Refutes Statement
That Glty Is Not Prosperous,
Rossland, Marcli 14.���The attention
of tho Rossland board of trade having
been drawn to editorial comment in
the   Vancouver   Province   of;   March
th, leferring to existing industrial
and commercial conditions in Rossland, the board bas condemned the
article as manifestly inaccurate aud
unjust. The board conduced to make
an emphatic protest and has issued
the following statement:
It cannot be denied tbat Rossland
did surfer lrom tho effects of the
miner's strike during tbe latter part
of last year but tlie bald statement of
the Province that " it will be years
before Rossland recovers tho healthy
and prosperous condition which it enjoyed, if indeed it ever becomes a
really prosperous centre again," is
completely disproved by the stato of
affairs existing today.
The camp no longer feels tho effect;
of the strike. All thc mines are
working to their full capacity and last
week a new record was made in ore
shipments, over 8,000 tons being sent
to tho smelter. The present week will
without doubt witness another record
broken as tbe Centre Star has recommenced shipments to Trail and the
other producing mines aro considerably increasing tbeir output. The
smelters are now capahlc of a weekly
treatment of 10,000 tons. With additional smelting facilities, whicb are
greatly needed and aro being supplied
as rapidly as circumstances permit,
the daily output can easily be brought
up to 2,000 tons a day or 14,000 tons
week.
Meanwhile the extensive development that is being done is snowing
up now ore bodies of great value. In
the Le Roi new shoots have been uncovered in ground that was reported
to be worked out; the lower levels are
being opened with very satisfactory
results aud elaborate operations aro
being conducted for the still furtner
deepening of the workings. The
latest examination of the mine made
by Mr. Frecheville, of London, proves
beyond doubt that the valuo ot the Le
Uoi ore improves with depth. In the
Lo Roi No. 2 a huge body of ore has
just been discovered in tho lowest
workings which is quite independent
of the old vein. This ore gives an
average assay of 826 per ton which
allows a profit of $20 over the cost ot
reduction. The War Eagle company
naj recently commenced a system of
development that will entail an expenditure of $200,000, There is not a
developed proporty in the Rossland
district that has not shown improvement with recent development.
If, as the Provinco says, Rossland
befoie the unfortunate strike was the
leading camp in B. C,, and it's pros-
purity was assured, what in the name
of common sense should prevent prosperity with thc strike no longer effective'.'
The I'mtiuce's statements os to the
causes of Rossland's past labor
troubles are not in keeping with the
faot which will readily be perceived
by any one who will taue the trouble
to inquire.
We know nothing of the "bank
ruptcy of Rossland's many citizens."
In fact wo know of no one here who
has gono into bankruptcy as the result
of the late strike. Incidentally,it is a
fact thut the competition among
wholesalers in the east and west for
Rossland business has never been
keener than at the present time.
of whicb Mr. Campbell brought down
with bim, He states that any one
giving his time to hunting could have
captured a large number cf them. In
thc fall there were many caribou in
the vicinity though they did not take
the time to shoot any except when
lllero were somo men up to look nt the
property.

POSITION
SULLIVAN SMELTER.

in charge of the construction work on
the smelter, and George W. Hull,
general manager of the Sullivan mine,
formed a party which came in from
Spokane yesterday and afier a short
stay at the Pbaii*took the boat for
East Kootenay. T'icy bave been in
Spokano in attendance on the mooting
of the company and have received
orders trora the directorate to push

as rapidly as possible to the end that
it may soon be completed. Mr. Uurbridge ls with the party and will look

The talk about closing down the con-
stiuction of the plant they declare to
have no foundation whatever.

The growth and needs of the cities of
the Kootenays caused tho opening up
of marble and other quarries along
the lakes and trie business of getting
out such huilding material will in
time employ a considerable number of
men. Nelson men saw the possibilities in the cement deposits on the
l'end d'Orellie river, just south of the
boundary line, and are now engaged
in putting np a plant of large capacity
wbich will be able to supply tbe
country for hundreds uf miles around
niib cement ut the best quality, thus
establishing an important industry.
There are many other industrial enterprises such as lumbering,which are
| doing well. Besides these, other industrial enterprises "ill be developed
with the growth of the county and out
of which much profit will be made.
All tne prosperity that will coine to
Nolson J or auy other community ' will
be though reaching out and .taking
advantageuf the natural advantages
that lie so piofusely around. The
difficulty is in having tlie capacity to
discern how they can be turned to
advantage. Watch the industrials for
it is certain that many fortunes are to
be made in them.
IS NOT ENTHUSIASTIC
Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, colonial
secretary, is evidently deeply absjrb
ed in the South Africa war and at
best is hot an enthusiast. In a letter
���written to the Dominion government
in regard to the forthcoming Colonial
conference to be held during the time
the piemiers of the several colonies
are in Lonaon in attendance on tbe
coronation ceremonies he shows that
he takes no great interest in the event
which la certain to play an important
part in the future of the cmpiie. lie
treats the matter in a lofty yet perfunctory way and in this is particularly the case when he says: "In the
opiuion of my ministers, there is but
a limited range of subjects upon which
the contemplated conference can be
productive of useful action. Nevertheless my ministers and I realize the
desirability of taking advantage of
every opportunity for discussion by
public moo of the Mother Country and
colonies on questions of imperial
interest, and Canada's representative
will be prepared to give respectful
consideration to any proposals that
may be submitted by ilis Majesty's
government."
Mr. Ch ambcrlain's attitude is this
important matter reminds one forcibly
of thut of Pooh-Bah in "the Mikado"
wUen he is approached by the three
little maids and ho speaks to them as
though under duiess and finally says
"Oo away little girls."
Mr. Chamberlain also says in another place that the "only question
which in the opinion of my ministry
gives promise of full discussion is that
ol the commercial relations between
the various sections of the empire."
The wholo tenor of the letter is
calculated to throw cold water on a
conference out oi whieh Canada and
the othor colonies anticipated so much
iu the way of bottcrmenta of the imperial relations. Mr. CliambeiIain's
evident intention is to fix the boundaries of the discussion nud to arrange
a fixed programme for the representatives.
Thia is not the,spirit suitable for the
ti me, tt,e occasion nor the importance
of tho conference. It is no wonder,
therefore, that the lack of interest
hIiowii in imperial affairs in the letter
of Mr.Chamberlain is greatly deplored
in Ottawa. It is not the spirit with
wbich to meet the representatives of
the colonies whieh have manifested
bow truly loyal tbey are since the
Smith Africa war commenced,by sending troops tu the aid of the Mother
Country.
The only nossiblo excuse for tho
Hpirit shown is to be found in tho fact,
that Mr. Chamberlain is so wrapped
up in the South African war that he
does not give other Important matters
the attention which tiny deserve, Wo
do not believe, however, that Mr.
(Jbamberlain voices tho true sentiments of the majority of the people ot
(ireat llritain in the communication
whicn he bent to tlie Dominion
government.
THE INDUSTBIALS.
The development of the mining industry of the interior ol llriti-.li Jo-
luinbia has made it |. niblc i r ivhat
aie knonn as Industrial in entiles to
thrive . The necessity for ehc"p fuel
for the reduction of the ores of Kootonay and Yale made it possible to
develop the ooal mines of the Crow's
Nest Pass, which have been opened up
both iu Uritish Columbia and Alberta
hy several companies and hundreds of
men are now employed in the production of coal. Thu cheap ti.el of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal mines lead to
the development of the iron deposits
in thn vicinity of Kitchener, and tbe
result is thai there will bo built up
thero one of the largest enterprises in
the province, which in timo will givo
deployment to an  army  of men  and I
A PRESCMPIIOUS SCUEME.
The chamber of commerce of Seattle,
Wash., has endorsed the proposition
of George Melville Miller, of Skag-
way, to buy from (Ireat llritain all
that territory lying west of the following line. Beginning at the present
Boundary line at tho head of l'ortland
canal, thence to and following the
130 meridian of west longitude due
north to the middle channel of the
Macaeniie river down stream to the
Arctic ocean. The territory included
in this would be a large portion of
llritish Columbia, all but a small
corner of Yukon territory and a corner
of Mackenzie territory. It would take
in all of tbe placer mines of tbe
Yukon and valuable miuing territory
in Uritish Columbia and Mackenzie
territory on both the east and west
slopes of the Kockv mountains. Many
millions of dollars in gold wiil be
taken out of this territory.
The plan, however, will nevei be
carried out as there is no danger
whatever of its being sold. In the first
place Great llritain would never think
of selling it without the consent of
Canada, and In the second place
Canada has no desire whatever to dispose of a single aero of her vaft, varied
and rich possessions, The scheme is a
wild and visionary one, and is born
from the desire of tho traders of
Seattle aud Skagway to increase tneir
business. It is certain if the memorial on the subject reaches the United
States government that it will never
be presented to Great Britain The
American government has no desire to
insult the people of Canada and such
a proposition would be of that nature.
There are u few people in the United
States, however, who seem to think
that money will buy anything.
"What we have we'll hold."
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
A Chicago despatch says that it is
no longer pretended there or anywhere
else that any part of the United States
is fioe from smallpox. The disease
iu a mild form is epidemic in all
sections of the country. A Portland
paper annaunos that there were 43 cases
of smallpox in that city last month.
It is said to prevail in several town
in Washington. Under the circum-
stanes increased effort should be made
by the health department to keep it
out of this section.
The government assay olfice at Vancouver, was only established about
the middle of last year, and np to
January 1st last, handled $1,000,000.
This year, although tho product of the
Yukon is rterceasing, a much larger
sum should be deposited with the
assay olllee. lt is accomplishing the
purpose for which it was established
diverting a portion of the flow of
gold of thn    Yukon from American to
Canadian cities.
The American papers regret the
.shortness of I'l iuco Henry's visit to
tho United States and complain that
did not secure an adequate or
comprehensive idea of the country, in
so short a time. An exchange, which is
friendly to tho idea of strengthening
the ties between Germany and the
United States, thus gives voice to the
fear lhat I'rlnco Henry's Inowledge
of the country is not very great, now
that ho has tiinshed his itinerary.

It Begins to look as though R. A.
Brov n was to realize his long Deferred
hopes of locating the big ore body in
the Voluabic mice and that very
shortly, the showing in tho long tunnel on that property being bettor than
at any time since work was first commenced on the claim, some eleven
yoars ago.���Grand Forks Gazette.
The following cable has been sent
by the manager ot the Ymir mine tu
the head office of tho company in
London: "During last month 80
stamps ran C515 hours (27 days 8
hours); estimated profit on operation
is $9,872. The falling off is due to
total amount crushed inolodi ng 5,210
tois low grade oro. The grade of ore
shows considerable improvement during thc present muntb drawn from the
same stopes."
H.B. Jackson, of the Contact Consolidated Gold Mines, is at the Queen's.
The properties of the company are
located in the Rurnt Rasin, about a
mile from the Columbia and Western
railway. Work has been pushed
steadily since last June ou a oiosscut
tunnel which is to cut the vein nt a
vertical depth of 200 feet. The tunnel
intersected the vein after it had
beeu driven 200 feet and a drift has
beon driven east and west along the
vein for 70 feet, showing a continuous body of ore. The ledge is from
two to five feot wide and averages
about $11 to the ton. Hctwoen 7,000
and 8,000 tons havo been blocked out.
The oro carries gold and silver, but
no lead or copper. It is of tho con-
co il rating kind and cau bo concentrated ten into one. The intention
later on is to put In a tramway to
McCrae creek where the ioneentrator
is to be built.
Mr. Jackson bas been to Sandon
where he has been looking after the
properties of the Erie Mining company
in which he is interested. During the
coming summer work is to be resumed
on these properties.

AN EVENTFUL DAY
When Ooffee Left The Household
"I never began to uso coffee until
after I began teaching school, then a
good motherly old dame served such
nice coffee that she got mo iuto the
way of drinking it
Inside of a yearl bectime a wreok from
insomonia and nervous prostration.
Every afternoon I was so drowsy and
filled with apprehension that I would
have crying spells without knowing
why.
I luid around the house in misery,
and was a misery to everyone else.
Once in a while a friend would tell me
that coffee was the cause of my
trouble I reasoned with them that I
only had one cup at breakfast and
that was not enough to cause tho
trouble, but I found that that was the
secret���that one cup of coffee.
It wus au eventful day in our household when 1 quit coffee und started
making Postum. I followed thc directions and the result was wonderful;
no other words express lt. The
Postum Coffee was of a rich, beautiful
color, and when cream was added
looked as delicious as it tasted.
A doctor who was in tho bouse
tastod the Postum and snid that it
was equal to the best Mocha or Java,
then quickly turned uway as though
it was incomprehensible. He suspected
there was coffee in it but I had been
assurod of the absolute purity of tbe
Postum aud have confidence in it.
Nothing over tastod hotter to ine
than that first, well-mude cup of
I'ostum, and never Binoc havo I tastod
coffee, and I now look back with
horror upon the sickness it caused.
We began, very quickly, to Bee the
difference between ray condition
under Postum and under common
coffee. I lost that feeling of despair
and restlessness which oppressed me
every afternoon and 1 began to sleep
like a baby. Postum must be given
tbo credit for all my improvement
A word about lea also. One time
when I was visiting I had a package
of Postum with me. It gavo out nnd
befoie I could get another I hnd tea
ffcr breakfast. Within a few days tlio
old wretched feeling that coffee used
ot give me camo buck,and all through
the long afternoon I felt that I must
weep and weep though really over
nothing at all.
Insomnia came back, but I quickly
quit tho tea and got all right again."

She Thought About
a Food that would
Agree with Her.
An unnatural appetite for rich and
improper food is really kept ulivo by
the use of such foods, whereas a
change to healthful,   nourishing and
scientifically made food, will correct
the unnatural appetite. A littl woman
up at P'jehsl<ill, N. Y., Margaret
Smith, P.O.Box 198 says:
''I was such n sufferer from dyspepsia that life was a burden, 1 oould !
hardly keepjfrom eating all sorts ofj
pastry, cakes and other rich foods, |
although tbey did not agree with me,
nor in fact did any sort of food. I be-j
caine low spiritid and discouraged,
was too weak to work and very seri-i
ously troubled with palpitation of the:
heart'
''Drugs seemed to make me worse!
rather than belter. A friend said one j
day: '1 believe Grape-Nuts food j
would cure you,1 explaining that that
food was made with great care and in- j
tended for lhe prevention and relief of
diseases that   were   brought abuiit  by
Improper food.
"That was Saturday night,   and all
dny   iui.duy   I   kept thinking  about
Grape,Nuts, and the first thing Monday morning I sent for a package. I
had it in my mind that the food woul
look liko nuts, and was disappointed
when I found it had to be eaten with n
spoon. However, I followed the
directions and made a meal of Grapo-
Nuts and milk, which 1 found to be
delicious,. and for tho first time in
months I suffered no distross after
eating.
"I at once began to feel hopeful
that might lie cured at last. Since
that day I nave used (Irape-Nuts constantly, morning and night, and havo
steadily improved in health,until now
1 am as woll as I ever was in my
life; weigh 10 pounds more than I did
a yeur ago, have no palpitation of the
heart and can work al) day long
"At supper I havo Grape-Nuts
mixed with scft-boilcd eggs. I make
my dinner on any kind of food I
desire. One of thu bust tilings about

THE DEATH OF LOWDEN
(Continued from First Page)
myself personally took tho dead bod\
of Lowden and placed it in a wagon
I then took Sherbert in my arms and
placed him in the wagon I then
went dowu the road with them a short
piece, when Sherbert said to mo in
words to this effect, "Mr. Cortiana.
I thank you very much for your kindness, you may as well return to the
mine, as 1 will not need you."
I havo personally visited tho cabin
of tbe Achilles mine where tho accident occurred, aud found that the
cabin was not built to suit a district
of that kind.
Further I found that Sherbert did
not have much difficulty in extricating himself from where he was huiied
not antbing like that he lias made out
he had, seeing that the bed in whieh
he was lying, is quite free, nnd there
was only about three feet of snow
around him, measuring from the top
of the cabin.
The bed iu which Lowden was lying
was ahout two feet from where Slier
bert's bed was, and the surroundings
certainly indinte that Sherbert made
no effort to liberate his companion.
There nover was a question nf
money suggested to Sherbert, notwith
standing Sherbert's statements to the
contrary, and I am prepared to jm\
the costs of an investigation commit
tee, to go and visit the scone of accol
dent, aud it will result in showing
that Sherbert was heartless to desert
his companion in the way he did.
Thanking you for your valuable
space taken up, I feel satisfied tbat
you will print my letter, in order that
the trnth may be known re this mat
ter.    I remsin, yours very truly,
BASIL CORTIANA.
