SPORTS AT   VANCOUVER.
orosse Still Holds First I'liioc, Wilh
Ilasebull Second.
(SPECIAL TO THIS MINER.)
Vancouver, E. C, May 17.-���In spite
of the growing popularity of baseball, lacrosse still holds first place in
the athletic world of Vancouver.
This is illustrated by the fact that it
Is Impossible to buy a boy's lacrosse
Stick in Vancouver, all the dealers being sold out two weeks ago. It is
;claimed that three or four hun.ired
f4jjf_liO-l boys have tiled in vain to pur-
{'.CluiBc lacrosse sticks. This Is all the
ffftlorc serious as the six schools in Iho
City are organizing clubs, which in
due time will supply it number'of
oraelts to UK the vacancies in the senior teams. Last year there wore four
teams in the city ; namely,the Vancouver seniors, the Vancouver Intermediates, and two junior teams, the Tet-
minnl City and the East End. This
jear there was a big spilt up in tht
Vancouver teams, a number of players
joining the Y. M. C. A. team, while
the Terminal City team amalgamated
W th the Vnnoouver. There are now
five besides the six junior teams pro.
jected: The Vancouver Seniors, Van-
'- iver Intermediates; Vancouver Jun
iors, Y. M. C. A. Seniors, Y. M. C. A.
Intermediates. _Whcn the. bchools   or
ganize there will be ten or eleven
tennis in the city. There has never
been so much enthusiam over the
game as at present, which is illustrated by the fact that last night forty active players turned out. for practice in
the Vancouver Club grounds. Baseball has sprung up to second place in
popularity and with all classes of citizens. Football, cricket and golf are
on the same level and attract very
little attention, while croquet and
tennis are very populur in season.

Marked   Improvement  in Her  Condition���Joy and Thanksgiving.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
San Francisco. Cal., May 17.���President McKinley described the marked
Improvement in Mrs. McKinley . condition today as a transformation.
Mrs. McKinley'S condition last night
improved to an extent that fairly
nonplussed the doctor, brightened the
anxious and devoted husband, and tilled the city with joy and thanksgiving. The sinking spell that was feared in the early hours before the dawn
did not come.
There was a slight tendency in that
direction, but that was all. The
physicians were so favorably impressed witli their patient's condition at
the early morning consultation that
they issued a bulletin announcing that
Mrs. McKinley had passed a good
night and informed the public that
there would not be another consultation until evening.
The renssui ing news printed in all
the newspapers was received with delight by the peeople. The feeling of
cheerfulness continued throughout
the day.
Although the other physicians left
early in the morning, Dr. Rixey did
not leave the residence and Drs. Hir-
schfelder and Gibbons were always
where thoy could be reached at a moment's notice.
Telegrams continue to pour in from
all parts of the country asking for
news from the sick room, and the president received many messages today
Congratulating him upon the reports
of improvement in Mrs. McKinley's
condition.
All the foreign ambassadors and
ministeis at Washington have sent
messnges of sympathy, doubtless by
direction of the governments they
represent.
There were callers innumerable nt
the residence, but most of them left
cards and expressions of hope for Mrs.
McKinley's condition. Flowers arrived in profusion until all the rooms
were filled with them.

SUICIDE AT VANCOUVER.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C, May 17.���Sad
and disheartened, William Daggett
sought death last night by plunging
into False creek. Ilis body was found
this morning by his friends, to whom
lie wroto nt 0 o'clock last night. This
is known because he said in one of
his letters; "The il o'clock gun has
just gone. I will never hear it
again." Daggett had come here a
year ago from St. Andrews, N. B.
He had been unfortunate in getting
work and grew despondent and after
deciding to kill himself want about it
very deliberately, writing letters to
friends and relatives and settlilng his
affairs. Ills nickname was "Dull?,"
and on tho corner of a letter left on
the breakfast table at his boarding
house wns written, "Open nt once���
Duko Is dead." The following was
the wording of the note left at the
board ing house: "I am going to erd
my life today, and I ask you nil as a
favor to try and think kindly of the
old Duke."
AWARDED $1,000 DAMAGES.
A Montreal Letter Carrier Wins Ills
Case Against a Detective.
Montreal, May 17.���Napoleon Mayer, a letter carrier, has obtained $1,.
000 tlamages from Detoctive Vaughan
for fnlBe arrest. Plaintiff claimed $_,-
000 damages, alleging defendant hnd
laid a trap for him in the shape of a
decoy letter with which lie was to be
entrusted In his capacity of letter
carrier, antl that he Buffered In his
reputation by being subsequently
searched bv Vaughan. The court held
there was no positive proof of Vangh-
un's having used the decoy letter complained of,but Mayor was subjected to
humiliation, and judgment wns rendered In his fnvor for (1,000 A few
weeks ago Detective Vnugliun waa ap-
polnttl chief of police of Rossland, U.
C., and he now resides in that city.
In his efforts to defeat the Thnrs
day half-holiday movement Nelson's
ex-mayor and cx-charupion of labor
unsionism diop to that level which is
reached finally by those who laeii
logical support to any argument and
deliberately lies in the columns of
his paper. He puts words in tbe
mouth of Mr. Emory, of Emory A
Walley, that were never uttered by
that gentleman. He said that nil he
barber shops of the city but one were
open yesterday. They were all closed
but one. He said the transportation
companies were complaining of the
injury wrought to their business by
the holiday. This he knew to be absolutely false. Mr. Joseph Carter of
the C. P. R. has about perfected arrangements for a regular Thursday
afternoon excursion up the river and
told a Miner representative yesterday
that he would be very much disappointed if the movement should fall
through. The ex 'a'jor champion stated that the hotel men were complaining. The hotel men are not complaining, and even if they were it
would be poor argument to advance���
that the holiday should be discontinued because tho saloonkeepers of tho
city objected to it. That of conr>e
would be sufficient for the ex-labor
champion, but fortunately the city of
Nelson boasts of some citizens who
would not be so influenced.
The ex-laboi champion says that
men workirg in mines should work
but eight hours a day, that it is cruel
fo compel them to work longer; that
the man woiking on the city stieets
should work but nine hours, and in
fact nobody on earth but the clerks
in the Nelson letail stores should
work longer than, at the most, 54
hours a week. Nelson clerks should,
however, work at least 04 hours a
week. If they don't, this ex-labor
champicn says Nelson merchants can
send east and secure clerks who will.
And yet when the mine owners of
Kootenuy sent east for men to work in
their mines they were sending the
country to the "uemintlon bow
wows"   and the   men   who came   out
here to work were "scabs" and fit
only to be driven out of the country.
The contemptible selfishness of tbe
man has been made manifest many
times but never so as in the present
case. Because, forsooth, some one
dared,without first consulting him, to
undertake the mid-week half holiday
movement he rises in his wrath and
insists that the merchants shall do
what he dictates. Some of them will.
But there are others who will not.
The ex-labor champion has lost his
grasp. The cloak which he has worn
for so long is becoming ragged and his
j fellow citizens are beginning to see
him iu his true light.
K. C. BEATON.
CONSISTENCY?
Editor Miner:
Sir,���A few months ago a certain
gentleman in this city was running
an election, lie was the friend of
the labor party. He was docn on h).
knees to the Unions. If a contractor
or mine manager imported a man
from the East to work for smaller
pay or longer hours than a Union
man, tlie man so imported was called
a "scab" by this would-be legislator.
The Union vote sent this gentleman
to Victoiia. Today he says that if
the clerks form a union for shorter
hours, there arc plenty of young men
in the east to take their places. How
about "scabs" now? Inconsistency
appears to be this gentleman's most
prominent characteristic. Haven't
the clerks as much right to form a
union as the miners, or bricklayers,
or carpenters, or any other class of
tradesmen'.' He thinks he can now
afford to throw over the unions as he
now writes M. P. P. after his name,
rides in Pullman cars and eats $1.00
meals. Mr. Dunsmuir and the great
transcontinental line are his friends.
He is now independent of the clerks
and union men who were instrumental In putting three letters ufter his
name. If the eld saying "Consistency, thou art a jewel" is true, Mr.
Houston, M. P P. certainly doesn't
wear many precious sioncs. Yours,
CLERK.
INVADINU CANADA.
Lord Strathcona Interviewed Upon the
Exodus of Uncle Sam's Subjects.
London, May 17.���Numerous American factory promoters have arrived
In London to urge British manufacturers to transfer their plBnts to Canada. They state thnt Canada is developing so rapidly that thousands of
Americans are emigrating thither
from the United States. Lord Srath-
cona, Canadian high commissioner In
London, said tonight:
"Unprecedented numbers of Yankees are crossing the border to cast in
their lot with us Canadians. We wel-
cumo them most cordially, for they
bring the very qualities wo need-
brains, vigor and grit. Many of their,
hail from the far west, where they
have already experienced severe conflicts with nature.
"Canada's undeveloped forests.farm-
Ing lainls and mineral fields hold on
to those frontiersmen not only thc
prospect of profit, but also of a life
that moots the requirements of their
adventurous natures,
"1 am glad that some of these energetic und ingenious Americnns who
have done so much to stud the plains
of the United States with prosperous
cities are turning their attention to
the development of Canada. Several
of them, I understand, have come to
London to encourage the investment
of British capital in   North   Ameiica.
Wo welcome their efforts, and ulso
extend a cordial Invitation to moneyed Americans to pre-empt the great industrial opportunities of Canatla if
they can.
"Our country docs not Bhudder nt
the name of Morgan or ut the word
'trust.' Wo fcai no combinations of
capital. On the contrary,we welcome
enterprise and money whenever It
come,
"We are free, loyal Canadians nnd
Britishers, but we believe In competition and donotshrink from the law of
the survival of the fittest. America's
onslaught on Atlantic shipping gives
us no sleepless nights. Hero again
we expect friendly rivalry to promote
a lively and healthy condition of
commerce."
CANADA A GOOD SECOND.
London, May 17.���Of all governments the Russian has taken greatest
advantage of the opportunity Glasgow
has afforded the world. The splendor, beauty and extent of the Russian
buildings nnd the varied scope of
thu Russian exhibits will give to
most people a first conception of the
commercial nnd industrial awakening
of the great northern empire. Canada,always eager in the advertisement
of her Immense resources, in perhaps,
the next most enterprising exhibitor.
Rut nearly nil the colonies make
great displays many of lliem hnveeven
enlarged the exhibits they Bent lo
Paris.

NOT AS A PUBLIC WORK.
. A cornsp indent of The Vancouver
Provin3H, Mr. W. McCraney, is greatly disturbed over the act'on of the
Government and Legislature in respect to their railway policy. Speaking more particularly of the Coast-
Kootenay project, lie expresses him-
��� ~.f strongly in favor of making it a
Government work. He cannot see
any reason why the franchise of so
great and valuable an undertaking
should be handed over to the Canadian Pacific or to the Great Northern
"There has not aB yet," he says
"been one substantial argument
brought forward by the Govern
ment to prove whv the Coast-Koote
nay railway should not be undertaken
as a public work, and the public
can only infer that the principal rea
son why the Government adopted the
present suicidal policy in building
the Coast-Kootenay is they were de
termined to float the Island railway
through on the back of the Coast-Kootenay." The Island railway referred
to is the proposed extension of Mr.
Dunsmuir's E. A N. line, which is
expected to increase enormously very
extensive property owned by that gentleman. Mr. McCraney in this sentence gives expression to a generally
prevalent suspicion that whatever may
happen to the other enterprises projected, care will be taken to advance
the interests of the Island railway.
But getting back to his main complaint, what possible advantage could
there be in making the Coast-Kootenay a public work? If the people will
take time for reflection, they must admit that the only useful and practical
course to adopt was to provide for a
contract with some other company.
There is styong discontent over the
belief that the Canadian Pacific waB
the choice of the Government from
the beginning, and that the past
month or two have been devoted to
intrigues Intended to insure that sucl
shall be the destination of the con
traot;but there need be no disappoint
ment over the fact that it is to go to
some company. In what position
would the Province find itself.if own
ing and operating a Coast-Kootenay
road? The Province ns an owner
could have no other or greater rights
than those possessed by any chartered
company. For connections It would be
at the mercy of the Great Northern
on the one hand and the Canadian Pacific on the other, and would be quite
as helpless to force terms or conditions as any private owner. It would
not be a whit more powerful because
it had a Government antl Legislature
at its back, for in the matter of lail-
ways they would be subject to the
superior uuthorlty of the Dominion,
the same as u Provincial chartered
company. The Go /eminent are not
open to censure for taking power to
deal with a company, and to forego
the option of building the Const-Koo-
tenay as a public work; but. there is
regret now, whi-.li time will deepen,
that they have resolved lo give it to
the company thut already enjoys a
monopoly of railway operation in
this Province. It only strengthens
the bonds which one day we In Urit.
leh Columbia must break if we are
ever to have competition.

It Is claimed that to make a closing
movement a success it must apply to
all businesses. This is absurd, and It
is Impossible to believe that the
claim is honestly put forward. It is
made in tlie hope of imposing on the
public discernment. It would be
true, of course, if the purpose were to
make a general holiday ; but that is
not the purpose, and no one has ever
pretended that it is. The object of
the half-holiday is to give retailers
and their clerks a brief respite from
work during the summer months.
Perhaps it was a mistake to make the
period extend over four months. It
would probably, have been us well-
many think it would have been better
���if May had been omitted.   A weekly
half-holiday during June, July and
August would have been a happy relief to the many who are obliged to
put in twelve and fourteen hours a
dny at their stores. The shopping
public who appreciate the measure of
confinement to which these are subjected were simply asked to arrange
to make their purchases during th-
other five and a half days of the
week, and they agreed to do this readily and with pleasure. The retailers
and their customer" were the only
persons concerned, and the only persons whom the movement was intended to concern. If others came into
the arrangement ,it wns because by
doing so they wished to show how entirely they were in sympathy with it.
But it was not expected or desired
that the smelter should close, or the
banks should close, or the mills shut
down, or ottioe doors he locked, or
the steamboats tie up, or the railways
stop running, or tho hens stop laying,
or the sun cease shining; it wns not
expected, iu fact, that there should
be any other sort of suspension of business except that which was necessary to give the store clerks and their
employers the relief of a little outing
during a portion of one day in each
week. To pretend that this cannot be
done without disarranging the entire
business of the town is too nonsensical
to deserve serious consideration, aud
the man who advances it as a reason
why the half-holiday should be abandoned is not any too far removed from
being incapable of reasoning at all.
The whole movement may be a mistake. The retailers and tbeir clerks
may be foolish to ask for half a day's
recreation at intervals during the
summer, and their customers may be
the victims of mistaken sympathy
to agree to it. We leave that question to the parties themselves, as
they alone have persona. 1 interest in
it. But we tliink the general public
of a town that has become reconciled
to an eight hour duy for the artisan
will not refuse to aekowledge that
tho store clerk who works twelve and
fourteen hours a day is at least entitled to the consideration which a
thoughftul and sympathetic shopping
public are willing to extend.
The case of the Rev. Mr. Haer has
excited fur more general comment
than it deserved. If the reverend
gentleman had been contumacious
and had triumphed against un attempt to discipline him. hardly more
notice could havo been taken of the
matter. The use of tobacco is forbidden Methodist ministers, and Mr.
Haer used tobacco. Quite properly
complaint was made against whin wus
thought to be a breach of tho rules,
but on inquiry it was learned that
Mr. liner's physician had prescribed
tobacco as a necessary sedative to n
paiuful physical condition undei
whicli he was laboring, and he took
to the pipe accordingly. Being men of
reason, thu members of the Conference
promptly exonerated him from all
blame. It wus a very simple affair,
nnd quickly antl simply settled. The
thing most worthy of remark In connection with tho whole matter has so
far escaped notice of any kind, and
that is that such an Intelligent body
as the Methodists should have such a
rule at all. It was all very well a
hundred years ago, when many good
men thought that tobacco was a
gift of the devil, but it seems very unenlightened in this age.
em B.C." The Review is right in
both its ���statements; the feeling is
against a C. P. R. contract, and it is
not because of ill will to that company. The great majority of our citizens are proud of its enterprise antl
rejoice iu its prosperity. Hut they do
not want to see this Province bound
hand and foot to any monopoly. East-
em Canada would not submit to such
a condition: Manitoba bas pledged its
last dollar to escape from it; if British Columbians are so poor in spirit as
not to protest, they are laying up evil
days for their Provinco which will
culminate in much sorrow nnd tribulation.
The Victoria Colonist, which has
given much study to the question of
the Alaskan boundary and understands it well, is fearful that .Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in his reply tlie other
day to Col. prior, gave away a strong
point in favor of the British contention. The Premier's well known anxiety to cultivate the good will of the
United States must not lie gratified
at the expense of_our rights in respect
to this boundary. There have already
been too many surrenders of that
kind, without in the least affecting
the amiability of our neighbors.
Kootenaians will unite in saying
that the best bit of news published
these many days is the intelligence
that the Government nt Ottawa have
decided to introduce a measure for the
protection and encouragement of the
lead industry. The introduction of
such a measure means that it will pass
and become operative, or thc Government are behind it and will see it
through.
We have great admiration for the
B. C. Review. It still prints it Klondike, as if in contempt, of the authorities.
OLD SOLDIER'S   EXEPR1ENCE.
M. M. Austin, civil war veteran,
of Winchester, Ind., writes: "My
wife was sick a long time in spito of
good doctors' treatment, but. was

Pills, which worked wonders for her

YUKON'S FIRST BRIDGE.
The B.C. Review, published In London, gathers fiom all it. can rbaerve
that, "fecliug in all the B. C. mining
camps runB high in favor of the railroad from tlie Coast to the Boundary
being built quite independently of
nny C. P. R. influences. This is not
frum any feeling against that railway,
but merely from u desire for a competitive line, the blessing of competition being much appreciated in South-
It is a Single Span nnd Was   Built in
Quebec.
"Vancouver, H. C, May 17.���A letter
from Dawson City says: Thc first
public bridge In the Yukon wns formally opened to the public April If.
It spans the Klondike about, one and
one-half miles nbove Dawson, and
forms purt of the leading highway
from the town to the creeks. The
construction of the bridge was begun
early in March and work was pushed
rapidly to completion before traffic
across 'he ice became Impossible.
The bridge is a handsome steel truss
structure, built in Quebec. It comprises a single span of 1.14 feet wide
with approaches at either end 100 feet
in length, four solid steel columns
imbedded in gravel support the structure, nnd nround each end of these
are piers filled with ballast rock. The
biidge cost 8:100,000 over 870,000 of
which represents freight charges for
over 40.000 miles of rails. Canadian
manufacturers in the east will find
the Yukon an extensive and profitable
customer in the immediate future.
The bridge will be knrwn as "The
Ogilvie" bridge since its construction
Is largely due to the efforts of tho
retiring commissioner.

��� Amalgamation of Big Trailing Companies Announced.
Vancouver, May IT.���Tlio most in -
portu.it commercial event of tlie set -
son in D.iwson is tlio official announcement just received by wire thai
three or fuur of the big trading companies represented here have formed a
gigantic combine. Included in tl e
big deal nre the Alaska Exploration
Co., the Alaska Commercial Co., the
Seattle Yukon Transportation Co.,and
the Empire Transportation Cn. It is
stated these four are combined into
two concerns, the North American
Commercial company with a capital of
$7,000,(1111). and the Northern Navigation Co. with a capital of over$3,0.00,-
000. The former take over all the
commercial assets   of the   companies,
' and will be operated by the Co.--.ei-
cial concern. The latter takes over all
transportation assets and will bo operated by the Navigation company only.
Tho telegraphed account of the ileal
lcavos out the third laigc company
operating heie, namely the North
American Trading company. The lirst,
- two of the merged companies, the A.
E. and A. C., as tbey are familiarly
called, together with the above N.
A.T. aro business concerns of the liist
magnitude in Dawson. They own extensive warehouses,shipping and mining interests here, as well as at various points oil thc lower Yukon. They
are owned by American capital and
their local manugcrs arc Americans,
Iljcanse of their heavy backing and
extensive stocks these companies
largely control the Dawson financial
world. It appears probable that the
N. A, T. Co. is included in the deal,
although it is not yet announced, liut
whether this is so or not the effect of
the combine must be far reaching upon the trade of Alaska and the Y'ukon
If the combination has   been   effected
��� for the purpose or reducing working
expenses only there can lie no objection to it. but if it means a monopoly
o' ttade the consumer hero will suffer.
BOND-BLAIR TREATY.
Newfoundland Premier in Ottawa to
, Sec Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Ottawa, May 17.���Premier Itond, cf
Newfoundland, arrived in the city
today. He had a long conference with
. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and some, of the
other ministers. His visit is in connection with the Bond-Blair treaty
which be wants to see put in forie.
This treaty has been held in abeyance
hy the imperial authorities at the
request of Canada,, who wanted tomo
years ago to be made a party to it.
Mr. Bond considers that as Canada
has not succeeded in making a treaty
with the United States and that ns it
hus had now a considerable number
of years to do so since the Newfoundland treaty was negotiated the objections ought to be dropped against his
treaty. He was in London, Eng.,
talking the matter over with the imperial authorities and has now come
straight to Canada to sec what can bo
done here. It is said that the treaty
would be injurious to Canadian fisheries and in reply to this Mr. Itond
says that he is giving awuv no fishing
concession and that, there is nothing
in the treaty that in any way discriminates against Canada.

FIELD WORK
_oml For Some Women.
���_���____, a<
Even people who work out of doois
are troubled with the eff.cts of cotfte
drinking. A German woman in
Egan, S. D., Mrs. L. Seng, says that
���he did not know what was the cause
of her being sick and miserable as she
had heen for some years past. Her
own words are interesting. "I had
no appette, Buffered considerably with
headache and dizziness, and was compelled to take some pills or medicine
regularly for my bowels, In this
condition I lived fur many years. It
wus poor and dear living as my doctor's bills will show. I had no idea
th(a.t'coffee was the ciiuhc nf my ill
health until I read in the paper about
Postnm Food Coffee :mil concluded to
leave off the coil'ee and take   I'ostum.
I had only used Postum a week
when I began to feel well. My stom.
ach began to work all right, headache
left, and had no more dizziness. 1
am able to eat. now and sleep and
work. During the last season 1
have been at work in the field
where before I was not able to sweep
out a room."
As a rule people engaged in active
physical woik can bettei stand the
toxic effect of the coffee than brain
workers who have but little physical
exercise. When a man or woman
finds sickness com ing on, such as s
stomach trouble, weak eyes, bowel
complaint, kidney trouble, etc., it is
time some attention is given to the
subject of beverages.
In practically all such cases where
coffee is the drink, one can obtain
relief by leaving off coffee and taking
Postum Food Coffee, for tbey leave off
a drink that is un active producer of
disease and take in its place a powerful liquid food that contains elements
for rebuilding ihe nerve centers that
huve heretofore been torn down.

ACCIDENTS ON THE LAKE.
Canoe   Orerturns    and    Boat    Goes
Through thc Rapids.
A couple of boating accidents occurred yesterday in the Kootenay lake
which gave three men a bad scare,
and caused another man to lose a 850
canoe. The first occurred after 5
o'clock to a tenderfoot named William Johnson, who started out in a
canoe, evidently not having passed his
examinations in navigation. About
a hundred yards from the wharf his
canoe capsized and he was thrown into the lake. Unskilled also in aquatic
sports he clung to the boat and exercised hie lungs by loud cries for help,
which attracted the attention ot tno
men in a bout, who, instead of immediately proceeding to his relief, also begun to "holler," which attracted
the attention of W. J. Astley at his
boat bouse, who went to the rescue
and brought the youth to land, who
shook himself and left for home as
fast as his legs would carry him.
The other was a case of two men
named Robert Lowrie and Victor
Lanholdt, who hired a canoe from
Astley's boat house und proceeded
down the river. Although one of thc
purty had been there before, accord Ing
to their own statement, they did not
notice the "danger" sign placed
above the rapids in letters} large
enough to be read half a mile away
and were caught in the swift curren*
at the mouth of Grohman creek, near
Allen Bros, ranch. Their cries for
help brought the ranchers to their
rescue and they were brought safely
to land, more scared than hurt, and
were soon on their two miles walk
back to town. The boat is going yet
and Mr. Astley is out a 850 canoe.
Two yeurs ago he lost a canoe at the
sume plnce under the same circumstances and is of the opinion that men
who are ignorant of the art of boating
and the dangerous places on thejake
should remain on land.
taking proceedings had passed before
he enteie.l his claim. The case, therefore, had to be tried under what is
known as common law.
Dr. La Ban was the firBt witness
called and gave medical evidence as to
the condition of complainant, in
which he was found at the time ot the
aetion. M. H. Peters, the party to
the u"t>nn, was next examined and
remained under examination and
crosB examination until late in the afternoon.
Edwin Wilson wns the next witness
examined and was still in the witness box when the court adjourned.
There are several witnesses and the
case is likely to last a couple of days.
RAILWAY BILL PASSED.
