Eleventh   Year
Big Wages Now Being Offered
Trackmen by G.P.R. at
Indignant Bishop at Halifax
Raises a Small Commotion.
Calgary, N. W. T., June 20.���The
first tiain ~_st since Sunday left
tliis afternoon. At Shagnupio Point,
four miles distant, a slide was partially cleared. After an inspection
hy the officials' an engir.o was firm
run across and the passengers on the
train watched operations. Then the
engine returned and the train was
drawn over. Kor about a mile there
was plain sailing but at Keith another washout had occurred and another
inspection was nectessary. This place
was safely ciossed. Cochrance was
reached, between which place and
Radnor there was auother washout.
At the latter point tho Imperial limited, castbo'ind, crsosed, and reported
all well. The rnn of thirty miles oc
.lupied three hours and a half. The
return journey on the cast bound was
easy. The Limited from the east today was seven hours late.
No train ran to Edmonton today,
The trackmeu are still out and determined and some of those who took
their places have left, although one
dollar per hour   is now being offered.
Halifax, N. S., June 20.-Bishop
Courtney, who befoie he was appointed
to the Anglican diocese of Nov�� Scotia, was rejtor of St. Paul's Church,
Itoston, made a scene at an entertainment in the eity last night. A London Bhowinan came here producing
an exhibition of moving pictures
representing the British navy aud
every day life of His Majesty's suil-
ors. After the performance the picture
of Edward VII. was thrown on, and
tbe band played "God Save the
King." A man,apparently in a great
hurry to leave the hall, started to go
with ids bat on. As he came down
the aisle he had to pass Bishop
Courtney. His Lordship looked at
him with dashing eyes and as he came
alongside the bishop rose and ivith
indignation struck off his hat, saying
as ho did so,"You ought to bo ashamed of yoiuself." The man stooped to
the ground and picked it up, looking
very sheepish, but beyond muttering some inaudible worns, made no
remonstrance. Such of the crowd as
saw the incident gave Bishop Courtney a cheer.
Montreal, June 20.���The remains
of the late James French, porter cn
Sir William Van Home's private car,
were interred at Mount Iioyai cemetery this afternoon, The funeral was
very largely attended by memberB of
the C. P. R. headquarters stuff and
others, to whom deceased was well
known. Sir William Van Home,

was Ihe principal mourner, and
among those who accompanied the remains from the residence of deceased

Sir Wiliam Van Borne, who returned this morning from Cuba, where he
has 8,500 men al work on his railway
schemes, said lie never put his hand
to a project in which he had met with
loss obstruction or opposition. There
hud heen no demands, no blackmail,
but on thc contrary thc projectors
had the heaity good will of the people.
The depression In tne price of the

Resnlts   of   Meeting   Held  at   Union
Hall Yesterday Afternoon.
A meeting was held at the Miners'
Union hall yesterday afternoon by the
striking trackmen of Nelson division
of the C. P. R., to organize a lodge
and discuss the present situation.
There was a good attendance and after an address by T. U. McManamon,
the Nelson lodge of the Brotherhood
of Railway Trackmen of America was
formally organized. After the usual
routine bustnes had been transacted
committees were appointed to look
after things generally. One committee have undertaken to see that no disorder or damage is caused by the men
wbo are out on strike here, and to
watch that no "ringers" from outside
come in and cause damage and blame
it on the strikers.
The different speeches were ver}
temperate in tone, chiefly to the
effect that the men were determined
to win, but would stay strictly witli'.n
the law, and endeavor to gain their
ends bv legitimate means only. Votes
of thanks were passed to Messrs. E
Boyce, J. C. Clayton, nnd K. Moe, for
their services in presenting the track
men's side of the case to the public.
The men are very hopeful that the
heavy rains in so many sections will
greatly aid in bringing matters to a
crisis shortly. The bridgemen from
Laggnu to the Coast are said to have
gono out yesterday, with the likelihood of the loeal men going today.
The men say that the tracks east of
the eity will need attention soon, as
although tbe permanent ties and
rails were laid, the ballasting has not
been completed. The engine damaging the second track yesterday haB
left only one line mailable.
Among the Best in
Great Improvement Has Been
Made In the Last Few
The attendance at the library during
the piesent month has commenced to
show the effects of summer weather
there being a considerable falling off
in thc number who take advantage of
the reading room privileges. During May there was an average of in
visitors a day. The books at present
are being classified under the decimal
system of cataloguing, which groups
all books of a class together in a manner whioh gives a reader great assistance in picking out a book wanted.
Shelves will be put In shortly on
which all government blue-books will
be kept on file lu a manner handy for
reference. The magazines for July
that have been received to date are
Harper's, Ainslee's, Wide World, New
Illustrated and Strand.
The Nelson hospital is one of the
public institutions of whioh tbe citizens have good cause to be proud. Between Winnipeg and the Coast there
are none superior to it in equipment
and conveniences for handling surgical
cases, and general hospital practice.
The progress made by the institution
in the past few years has been indeed
of great importance. The hospital
has grown by reason of its excellence, made possible by the hard-
work, and in many cases self-denying
efforts of those who were connected
with it,as staff, directors, and outside
persons interested in it.
The site, which covers two acres of
ground, is in one of the brightest and
airest locations in Nelson, and the
building has been skillfully planned
to allow the windows of the various
wards to look over some of the grandest scenery cf the Kootenays.
The original building, which did
duty for a few years, has beeen converted upstairs into two general
wurds and downstairs into a dining
room. The new wing consists of
kitchen and furnace room In the
basement,reception and store rooms on
the ground Uoor.operating room, general ward and private wards on the
first lloor, and nurses' rooms, private
wards, etc., on tbe second oor. There
are also bath rooms on each lloor. Besides the main building there is a cottage hospital for maternity cases, containing ten wards. When the cottage
hospital was first built it was intended to use it for quarters for tbe
nurses, but it was found to be more
convenient for the purpose that it is
now used for, so rooms were fitted up
for the nurses in the upper story of
the main building.
Altogether there are three general
wards, two for men and one for women, giving accommodation for 21
patients, and Bi\ private wards, in the
main part, which is heated by hot
air. The cottage hospital has a steam
heating system. In both bindings tbe
ventilation is first class, being of the
most modern principle. The whole
of tbe main building has just been
newly painted and kalsomined.
The first thing that strikes the visitor to tbis hospital is the surprisingly home like and cheerful appearance
the rooms aud interior present, as
different from the gloomy and depressing air of the average hospital as
well could be imagined.
One of the most important features
of the institution is the maternity
ward, whi ;h has proved to be a great
success since it wns first inaugurated.
In this section private patients receive
a care and trained attention which it
is practically impossible to receive at
home, oven under tbe most favorable
The present staff is a most efficient
and able one, consisting of Dr. O. E.
Doherty, house physician, who is a
graduate of Trinity University, and
Trinity Medical Bohool, Toronto, also
of the state boards of New York,
Missouri and Iowa; Miss E. Des-
Brisay, a graduate of Victoria Jubilee hospital, the matron, and Misses
M. McKecn, C. Eraser, and E. Ferris, are also from tho Victoria hospital, Miss E. Gray from an English
hospital, and Miss Bushlield from the
Guelph general hospital,are the regular staff. Besides these trained
nurses, there are four probationers,
Misses E. Howe, B. Menzics, M.Smith
and E. McKenize.
Despite the large number of serious
cases that have been treated at the
hospital, the percentage of deaths in
ono of the smallest of any hospital in
Canada or.the United States. Tbe city
doctors take month about in visiting
the hospital, and privnto patients of
course have the choice of bringing
their own doctors  to attend them.

Switch in
Cranbrook Yards
With  Serious
Engineer and  Fireman Attacked With Stones and
Former Hurt.
A dastardly attempt to wreck a C.
P. R. train was made at Cranbrook
early Tuesday morning and as (i result the engineer is in the hospital
and the engine is a  hopoloss wreck.
A heavy freight train was pulling
out from Cranbrook for the west.
Owing to the heavy grade encountered
as soon as the town is left the train
was to be pulled up in two sections.
The engil e pulled the first one ovei
the grade and returned for tlie re
mainder of the train. It was attached to the cars and again polled ont
for tbe west. The switch light signalled that the line was clear but
when the engine approached it bounded from the track and went plunging
over the bank. At the same instant
a volley of rocks struck the cab, one
going through tlie window and striking the fireman on the head. The engine was badly smashed and the driver was taken from the wreck in an
unconscious condition. lie was removed to tbe hospital where be was
made as comfortable as possible and
it is repotted that lie is doing well.
News of the wreck soon spread
through the town and a large posse
of men turned out to hunt for the perpetrators of the deed. The company
��� mnie.liatcly had dodgers printed announcing that tbey would pay SI,0110
reward for the arrest and conviction
Of the guilty parties. Talk of lynching the culprits was freely indulged
in by the indignant citizens and had
they beeu captured they would have
had an uncomfortable quarter of nn
hour. There Is much speculation as
to the reason of the outrage and what
could have actuated those responsible
for it. The position of tho switch
and the light, the latter being turned
back to report "all clear," alter the
former had been thrown open, indicates that the work was done by a
railway man. The volley of rocks, of
course, disposes of any idea that it
might have beeu an accident.
Under the circumstances the striking trackmen are connected with the
wreck, but the men indignantly deny
that they had anything to do with it.
They point out thut they know they
will ruin their   cause by resorting   to
vate capital interested, notwithstanding tlie large amount contributed by
the mining companies of that dis-

Russia's Latest Utterance on Tariff
Dispute���Further Reprisals.
St. Petersburg, June 24.���On competent authority the correspondent ot
the Associated Press is able to say
that the Russian minister of finance
regards Secretary Gage's explanation
of the petroleum question to be beside
the point. Russia has adopted reprisals in the form of increased duties un
American goods for the second time,
not because a ceitatn shipment of petroleum was taxed at an unduly high
rate, because it was not accompanied
with a certificate as to its origin, but
because Russia does not admit the
correctness of Secretary Gage's inler-
pretion of the tariff laws of the United
ed States. Section 020 of these laws
places naphtha and the products of
n.ii htha, on the free lists unless the
country to which they are exported
charges duty on similar articles from
the United States. Russia does not
think that these laws authorize the
collection of a tax on paraffine mado
In Great Britain from Russian naphtha, as decreed by Secretay Gage in
his circular of Marjh last. According
to the Russian press, this circular
is generally regarded as the answer of
the United Slates in the matter of the
Russian reprisals, and this opinion
has never been corrected.
The impression has been conveyed
to the correspondent of the Associated
Press that the nope of Secretary Gage
that Secretary of State Hay will succeed in   explaining these   matters   to
���    , , . . ,���.���.,.      ,      .the satisfaction of M. DeWitte will be
such   lawless acts and implicit orders I ....
, , . .u���. _...i���. ���.^o-,���,,_. Un   vain.    If   further   action   against
Russian trade is taken by thc   United
have been given that strict order must
be maintained. Also, as they have
mucb to expect from the engineers and
firemen in the way of sympathetic
help they, would not be foolish
enough to do anything to antagonise
that element. It is thought here that
the deed was committed by some discharged yard men who took advantage of tho strike to make the company the victim of their spite in the
hope that the trackmen would be held
responsible for it.
Brayton   Says   it   Will Bi
menced   Very Shortly.

The news dispatches of a few days
ago conveyed the Intelligence that Mr.
Turner, Piovincial Treasurer, had
gone East. No intimation of any
kind was given as to the nature of
his mission. The Victoria Post supplies the information necessary to
complete the announcement, and in
teresting reading it makes. We reproduce its article in full:
"The Hon. J. II. Turner has started off for Ottawa in a hurry. His
departure was not expected io Victoria, and in lact was not decided on
till the afternoon ou which he left.
It was given out that he had gone
to Toronto on private business. As a
matter of fact he hus gone to Ottawa
on public business. The business has
not beeu divulged, because it involves
a serious difference of opinion between tbe Dominion and Provincial
Governments, in whicli the Provincial Government stands to get very
much the worst of it. It is hinted
that Lauiier and his Cabinet, who
bave no love for the Dunsmuir crowd,
have been using some very peremptory
lauguage, so peremptory in fact that
the presence of a Cn.binet Minister at
Ottawa was deemed a matter of urgent importance, Neither Mr. Dunsmuir nor Attorney-General Ebeits
has any desire to repeat his experience of Ottawa; in fact there are reasons why the present negotiations
could not be entrusted to Attorney-
General Eberts, and Dunsmuir could
not go alone. It is hinted that
there are indications of disallowance
on such a colossal scale as would
bring on a grave constitutional crisis,
were it not.tbit tlie Provincial Government has placed itself in an impossible position and tbat the Dominion has a practioally impregnable
case. As Attorney-General Eberts is
supposed to have been the inspiring
agency of most of the legislation in
question, he could not very well go to
Ottawa to attempt to save the situation, besides his being persona in-
gratissima there. So the Hon. J. II.
Turner has been hurried off to make
the best bargain be can and to prevent open disagreement. The Provincial Government,if matters come to
a crisis, will not be able to take a
stand on tbe popular ground of Provincial rights, as they have left too
many obvious openings through which
to be attacked without any interference with Provincial rights. What is
making the Government ho nervous is
the fact that unless matters are arranged it. will be held up to ridicule
among people with whom it is already intensely unpopular. Certainly tlie departure of Mr. Turner for
Ottawa is the most rapid thing the
Government has done since tlie Hon.
James Dunsmuir has come into
For the truth of any of this we
cannot, ol course, vouch, but assume
thai the Victoria editor would not
send out such statements without reasonable ground for believing them to
contain the facts of the ease. That
the mission was a hurried one and
unexpected, we aie entitled to conclude from another dispatch only a
day or two older, which raid that Mr.
Turner would not leave for his now
situation in London until the autumn, as lie was averse to malting tin;
trip across the continent during the
heat of the .summer months. And it
is by no menus unlikely thai there is
disagreement between the two Governments ou account of Provincial legislation. Tlie "business Government"

and which is being maintained hy
corruption so .shameless that it Is not
thought to be necessaiy to make even
a pretence of concealing it, hus succeeded in its short term in musing a
sad mess of things, and It will cause
hut little surprise if it shall turn out
that it is being taken to task hy tho

ever so true, there is no pen on in
Canada, and no class of persons, invested with the right ta interfere
with the perfect freedom of others to
work for whatever scale they may
choose to accept. Trouble in such a
case would mean lawless violence, and
under the laws and customs of Can-

A Victoria paper publishes the following paragraph, und credits it to
The Minor: "When the people voted
subsidies to build railroads, the sum
they gave was counted as capital invested, and they have been paying an
interest on the money they gave!
And they will always have to pay an
interest on it until the public owns
and operates the roads. Think of
people paying an interest on their
donations!'1 We do not know where
tbis first appeared, but it was certainly not in The Miner, which makes it
a practice to avoid talking   nonsense.
To get from Marcus to Republic, a
distance of forty miles, it will be
necessary for tbe Great Northern to
build eighty-three miles of railway.
The line will run direct north from
Marcus until it gains British Columbia territory; then due west until it
rocrosses the Kettle River for the
sixth time, near Carson, after which
it takes a bend to the north-west and
circles around to Midway. From Midway south the route is fairly direct.
It is expected to havo the road completed and in operation this year.

he was ready enough to suppoit thc

this eity next Monday afternoon and
evening under their large waterproof
tents will h�� s.en winy new and novel animal acis at. many new special
features have Been added. The performance given by 'he clever animals
with Norris A Rowe's shows is nothing 3hort of marvelous. The funny
clown dogs, and only trained Harlem
goat, the wondefrui little elephants,
the only trained African zebra, the
seventy trained Shetland ponies, the
comical monkeys,and the only trained
lios Indicus, in this country give a
performance that cannot be excelled.
Norris at Rowe are the originators of
this form of amusement and stand to
day without a doubt,tbe most successful animal trainers in the world. The
little pets with this show ar i taught
to perform their various feats through
kindness; and it is a good moral lesson for every boy, and girl. This
will be the farewell tour of the show.
A grand free spectacular street carnival and new big parade will be giv
en on the morning of the exhibition in
connection with the Trades procession
at which time the entire company of
over 300 animal actors will he seen
