Another ieiu has been added to the
list of trouli'es which lhe autlioii ies aie
having wilh Indian- to whom lupin
mis been unlawfully -old. On the night
of the 28'.h ult. Ihe Chief of the Oiyufce
iribe teiu for Cousialile Home of this
town lo arrest a uototiou-* Lmlinn named
PlasliUH, or us he is locally named, " The
C*j1i," who v\ns under the influence «if
liquor tin. likely to uo grievous harm.
Arriving at the Reserve, the Constable
vas forsaken by ti.e messenger and
others who had gailieied around llie
hut in which Pta_l.ua lives, nil being
anxi us to avoid inclining the ill-will
i.l* one of tin ir nun:'-, who had made a
record for liiiu.eii us a dangerous member of the community.
On being urged logo with tlie Con-
Stable, Plasliua at once showed tight.
Throwing off his coat, he defied the
, oliieinan ai.d prepaied to make an as.
sauli, when he was covered by tht) if-
fleer's revolver. At ih s jhji t lhe Chief
entered and in the Shuuhwap tli.ilei t began, apparently, to persuade lhe Indian
logo with the Constable and eventually
he consented, but i. reported lo have
threatened hat the Constable wood
'never cross the bridge."
The night being dark, the Constable
sent the Chief for a lantern, while he, iu
charge of Ihe prisoner, set cut for Lillooet. On the way the Indian became
quite docile and communicative, giving
the name of ihe person from f'hom he
obiaimd his liquor and other iuforuia
lion, but when aliout a half mile from
the Reserve, and near the Jensen cabin,
he turned suddenly upon and sprung at
He officer's throat, but was compelled
lo let go, but in his second effort he ef-
leciually choktd lhe Constable and bore
him to the ground. It was at this point
that the officer of the law used the revolver in the endeavor to break the Indian's shoulder and so compel him to
release his grip. Tiie bullet passed
through the coat without touching the
arm and entered near Ihe Indian's left
ear aud earned him to drop to the ground
like a stone. Shortly afterwards the
Chief, with the lantern, came up and,
turning the lighton the face of Ihe prisoner, was declaring him dead,, when
without warning he sprang up, escaped
the officer and was lost in  he bush.
Efforts to find him were without success, but at 9 a. in. the next morning he
turned up at his own home, in an exhausted condition. Since then be has
been under medical treatment and is
likely to recover.
At a late stage, Arthur Swartz was arrested for supplying Plashua with liquor, but it appears that he himself bad
been beaten by the Indian on the day
of the tatter's arrest and, according to
medical reports, lies seriously ill in consequence. He has now been released on
$300 bail.
Felix Marshall, selling liquor to Indians, fined $50 and costs.
Indian woman, Elizabeth, paid a fine
for being drunk. •

Ottawa, Feb. 28. — Mr. Chailes M.
H.iy, Piesident, and Mr. Wainwright,
General Manager, of theGniiid Tiuuk,
were here to-day and met Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Sir Richard Cart a right,
and Hon. Messrs. Sutherland, Sifton,
Fielding and Fitz. ui ri. k. The question
of assistance to the Grand Trunk
Pacific was di.cu..ed.
It is understood that two propositions
were laid before the Government. One
was for a land grant. It is needless to
say that a land grant will not be ion-
sidered. Whatever aid is given, it must
lake some other form than that of land.
Hon. Mr. Sifton declared against the
land grant, and the Wesl is solid with
him in this regard.

The Miners'  Convention.
*-~. '' " ~_
_____.•-       .. ■_ -      . __ .   -        <■
The Convent ion which has just
closed its lal'ors at, Victoria
proved itself practical from the
outset by appointing a delegate
to proceed 'inmediately to Fernie nntl attempt to settle the dis-
nsl rous coal strike at that point.
Moreover, the resold tion that the
Govern ment he requested to appoint a commission of three
members to examine into the existing relations between employer .-ind employee engaged iu
the mining industry of this Province, with a view to the prevention ot* trade disturbances, was
un evidence of the practical nature of this gathering.
v\"e regard the make-up ot the
Convention as a pledge of gootl
work to be done. Practical
knowledge of the subjects discussed places such a gathering
at a. great advantage. It is a
fact that educated men invariably fail in the discussion of
labor problems when their knowledge is merely theoretical. They
may be familiar with the theories
of political economy, but when
they apply them to any particular situation failure invariably
results. Laborers are specialists
in their calling, aud know facts
and feel the situation which must
be taken into account iu order
to judge thein fairly.
It seems tons that the greatest
hope of settlement nml industrial
petn-e lies in the mingling of employer and employee, when the
educated will go to laborers
themselves, and stay long enough
to know the actual situation of
Capital and Labor, in order to
understand antl to help to solve
intelligently the mighty problems involved. In tlie convention just closed we have had such
a gathering of employers and

The Late firs. Allen.
The passing away of Mrs. Allen, widow
of the late Edward Allen, on the 28tli
ull., at the age of 76, removes another
of the landmarks of this district—thirteen yeare. to a day, afler the death ol
her husband. The defeased lady had
not been in good physical health for
some years, although mentally vigorous to tl.ulast. The imni.dime cause
of death was pneumonia. Mrs. Allen
came to British Columbia in 1868
troin Nottingham, England, and until
Mxteen years ago resided with her htia-
l>nnd at Maiden Creek Ranch, near
Clinton. In 1887 the family came to
Lillooet, Mr. Allen becoming proprietor
of ihe Pioneer Hotel. The l.u_band of
the subject of thi. notice represented
Lillooet District in the Provincial Legislature from 1882 until his death in the
spring of 1890 Mrs. Alien leaves one
son, William F. Allen, who conducts
lhe hotel business above mentioned.
The funeral of the lamented lady took
place t n Monday last at 10 o'clock nnd
was attended by a. very large number
from the town and surrounding country.

To drive sixcnyiisehorsesnlonji,
jhe edge of a precipice with notli-
iig* but the skill of the driver be-
ween tyou and nniiihiafioii, and
S*o gallop safely   down suul up
liills where afc one moment the
fundi threatened to fall over the
|iorses nnd the next the horses
Bo fall back on the concli, was uo
i'Miieciire fur the driver, be he ever
mt skilful or his  nerve ever so
strong.   There wns the rontl just
built along the edge of the Fra-
|ser River.   Travellers today, ns
they   skirt the opposite side in
jtheir  railway enr,   wonder how
Jever such a rontl wns built, nnd
wonder  still more   however tl.e
old-timers dared to travel over
| it.   It   was a, risky experiment,
nnd when we snid   good bye to
Yale there were doubts freely expressed   of our ever   returning.
Everything wns new nnd untried
| and    the   surprises   that    were
sprung upon us were neither few
nor far between.
The most of our horses had
never been in harness before, and
nny   oue who   knows  a cayuse
knows that he is  a, first cousin
to a broncho; nnd  thefeutsof a
broncho   iu    kicking, plunging,
bucking and  general horse demoralization are mailers of history.     In   changing   horses we
performed  things   which   would
mnke the fortune of un ordinary
circus.   There was a, man holding every horse and   the passengers were exhorted to sit still, no
matter whaleve-   happened, and
to grip the sides of  the.coach
hard.    Rearing, screnuiing, and
leaping, the horses would at last,
ns if by a preconcerted arrangement, go off with a bound.   In
front snt Steve holding the reins
iu one hand and his long whip iu
the other, with his right foot ou
the   brake.    Rigid ns a statue,
eyes keen as an eagle's, and with
.muscles of iron nud   nerves  of
steel, Steve controlled the situation, uo mutter how  critically
dangerous it seemed to us.   lie
seldom spoke,   and   life  seemed
too serious for him to laugh.   1
never heard  him swenr   und I
never knew him  to touch liquor
—nnd  I   hnve seen  him   sorely
tempted to do both.
Once, when driving over a
mountain rond iu a night ns
dark as lhe proverbial "pitch,"
our horses shied at something
which no one saw but themselves,
aud over went our coach. From
lhe midst of the struggling
horses and the overturned couch
a woman arose, a bottle of
liquor iu oue hand nud a pistol
ior Fall or Spring planting.

60  YEARS'
Lillooet District
Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near tlie town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed Avith a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of eieeooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
andeuson lake and HUiDGE RivEit mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected.
3.Jt^]shing ajidJHLunt^ng Grounds-^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here.    Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Jts^alubi^
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashcroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.
