Surveyor Bartlett has laid out the pipe

the ditch is now dug and ready for the
pipe layers. Work on .he reservoir itself ia at a standstill, nothing having
been done aince the lumber for the tank
was delivered on the ground. Th-a ia
due to the fact that every Slocan carpenter is engaged at soire of the various
mines and none can be got for this work.

When fickle Fortune smiles on one she
grows lavish iu her favors and showers
her gifts in a bewildering sequence.   The
Lido boys spent several years in  bard
work wailing to make a strike; prospecting in nu miner,   working for   a grubstake during the  winter  months, they
pushed tbeir fortunes, opened  up their
prospects in the face of difficulties and
came up smiling after every throwdown
and misfortune.    None will t-ay tliat the
boys have  not earned t, e good things
tliat the turn of the  wheel  haa  brought
them this year.   Their latest good fortune is told by the Lardeau Eagle:
< "Two weeka ngo a bat is to-day a grass
root slnpt'ci and  a Muter Triune mine,
waa vacant groeitti ,_n lite south slope of
Triune cieek, opposite and a little below
the Triune mine.      Vincent  Lade,  who
baa been foreman at the Triune, on tlie
supposition that   thia   should be   good
ground took put luck and placed stakes
upon two claims, named the Oolden Lode
ami Little Pine, which are now owned bv
himself and his broibar Jas.  Lade, nho
were also co-owners in ti.e Ophir Lade
gold   property  recently  bonded to the
Ophir-Lade syndicate at HOO.OOO.   Mr.
Lade had found a big iron capped ledge at
the time be staked the property, hut on
Tuesday last iu company wilh  Andrew
Ferguson, they decided to take a look at
what looked not unlike a second lead at
first sight.   And to eay that their expectations were more than realised would be
whispering tha result.    They   actually
picked out two sacks  of cloan ore and
carbonates. Identically the same stuff as
the old Triune produces, in a truo ledge
from 6 inches to . feet in width.   And
with a few samples thai doea one good to
look at they left for town,    Mr. Lade resigned his position at the Triune at once,
and in a few d.,ys will start work on   the
Golden Lode group."
The following remarkable fish story is
vouched for by one of our leading citizens,
who is an expert angler and teller of fish
yams. He had been whipping -Four
Mile creek, meeting with indifferent success, his catch being limited to a half
dosen fingerlinga. Just as lie had begun
to despair of a catch he noticed that ho
bad lost a heavy gold ring off his finger,
tbe climax of bia bad luck. Just at thia
moment hia reel began to sing, and for
fifteen delirious momenta he forgot his
former bad luck, bin ring and all else in
ihe excitement of landing a ten pound
trout He marched boni" with hi* prize,
and after putting hia basket beyond the
cuts rench, went into his room to wash.
Here the flrst thing be saw was his ring,
which he had gone away and forgotten.
Now that   the   C. P.  R, trackmen's
stilke is over, perhaps the   Compan v
will rush work on the burned out trestle
on the NAS and resume the regular service for ihe main) line. ■     '•• -

amount of ore In dlght will be milled
as soon as the plant can be established.
There are 60 men employed by the con»-
pany and this number will be materially Increased before the end of the year.
At a cost of several thousand dollars
the road to the mines has been greatly Improved, many short curves being
eliminated. The Improvement will benefit a largo number of mines.

of the Kootenai Copper Mining k
Smelting company, near Port Hill, Idaho, report", the striking of the ledge In

Is of high gralo copper and the ledga^
is 30 feet wide. Just the amount af th ks
that is paying ore has not yet been determined, but lt Is known that there Ib
at least ten feet of it. Assays from the
ore show values of $65.79, being an average from six samples. The vahies
are mostly ln copper.
The statement that Washington was

Aside from the strength In textiles
the feature In prices Is the lower range

Wheat is off a little In liquidation, bus

smaller clearances and less active export demand.
The air of patient serenity with
• which the Iron and steel trades view
the trade and strike situation Is significant of the confidence growing that the
■end of the strike Is In sight. Leaving
•out this matter, the trade Is in good
-shape and consumption ls large. Fl-
■nancial products, such as hoops, tubes,
•sheets and tin plates, are still bringing higher premiums. Structural material, plate and bar mills have orders
for months ahead.

Thirty-four dead, three fatally injured
and 10 more or less seriously hurt—that
is the result of the terrible train wreck
und holocaust on the Qreat Northern railway at Nyuck, 'Mont.,' Friday evening.
, .Tlie wreckage instantly took fire and
burned fiercely for over two hours and
a half 'before reaching the pussenger
coaches in which over two score human
.beings luy 'buried, fcioine were mangled,
some were dying and many were dead.
Their mutilated remains were never recovered, hut were cremated in the awful
furnace heat which consumed every vestige
of-Uii) wrecked curs except the iron und
. In thin fearful holocaust the bodies of
Assistant < ieneral Superintendent I', T.
Oo.wijs and son, T. Kirk Downs, were

Ten freight cars loaded with shingles
iu'i3T.'lumber, " one boxcar loaded wit'
canned salmon, and three conches on the
passenger train, including a standard
sleeper, a day coach and the private cur
of •jSupcrinleiuient Downs, were burned in
the conflagration.
The wreck occurred at Xyack, 41 miles
east-of Kalispell, Mont., at 8:30 o'clock
in the evening. The passenger had just
passed a caboose- and a duy pussenger
coach, standing ou u sidetrack, and was
running about six miles an hour, when the
rear end of our train was crashed into
by a runaway- freight train of 28 mrs,
which had started from a siding near the
summit of a steep grade. These cars were
heavily loaded und when the crash came
were miming fully 70 miles an hour.
' Eye , itnesseH say that the freight cars
vame down the mountains with a roar like
a tornado, carrying great clouds of il I i
and withered vegetation in their wake.
The roar of the runaway trail was beard
above tl:c ii.iise of the passenger train
by a nun »vhu was iu the detached caboose.
The (Kilnt at which the collision occurred
was just beyond, a sharp curve, which, together with- the moving passenger train,
prevailed any. attempt at warning, had
siK'lj|i',.tlf__ng1keen possible.
TiAhosc on the train not s single moment's warning was given. The first we
knew^* was a .fearful crash followed by
H sickening, crunching grinding, tearing,
jolting «oiiml.- Thia was fu..iinVil by the
violent oscillation of the coaches, a sudden jt'ik nud all was still.
The cau* of tba' conflagration was nol

' - •. •' esbofie* was   overturned to where tlie vic-
t ■ .j Aims, were   buried   beneath the wreckage
Wm ait least live ear lengths distant.   That
V •*' accounts    for    the    considerable lapse of
*' .'(bit* before the sleeper and other wrecked
i    ' '. «isrs',wisre burned.   No Arc Originated in
■ ; •"   pro pSsengpr train at all.
'   The    wreck    was    not caused from a
>     ,• freight train breaking in two, ns l.rst re-
f ' ported, but in the following manner: East-
'bound freight train No. 1(1 had taken the
*  aiding neur the summit of the grade near
" i%- Essex, 10 miles from where the collision
occurred.   It "-consisted ol   28   loaded cars,
two engines and a'-caboose.   A helper engine is useil at the rear of freight trains
over the Esse*   grade.   The   caboose fob
. .., lows the helper engine.
After the train passed Iiotli engines of
the. freight  were detached  and  taken  to
ESsex for water  und   coal,   leaving the 28
. ears on the siding.   'It is imposed the air
.,. ...  (brakes which  hud  been set  leaked,  thus
, i,      allowing the tension on the brakes to relax, with the result that the 2S cars began
to go down the hill, gathering momentum
at every mile, until the point of collision
: ....    with tbe passenger train, when it is variously estimated    that    the runaway cars
must have lieen going st the rate of 70 to
100 miles an hour.
Tlie real liJss of life  is variously esti-
{       muted. The conductor in his report to the
physicians snid that the duy coach dairy-
. ing the laborer* left Havre with 47.men ou
imani.   Between Havre and Nyuck'   four
left the train, leaving 4,'l on board-in the
couch when the collision occurred.   Of the
lh rescued, three were dead and one died
.••   • ahortly. afterwards, making a total of U
dead and   missing.   These,   with the three
".'  „. jwhsengCr* iti the private ' coach, make a
'total of 34 who arc known to have lost
' their lives at the time of the accident.   'If
V the conductor,  was   mistaken   about four
men   leaving   the   coach bctweeh Havre

to get his rifle.
As Little reappeared at the cabin door
Calloway fired with a rifle, killing him instantly. So inijue.it has yet been herd.

The ranch trouble arose over the jump
in;j of the property by little. The latter
located it and some time ago sold it to
Fletcher & Calloway. The land was un
deeded, however, and Little took advantage
of this tact to jump the ranch.

Thus it would seem that those who
prophecicd a Martin candidate for tho
position were justified in their views.
However paradoxical it may appear,
Joseph Martin and Premier Dunsmuir
are in collupion; oil and water have
mixed, the capitalist and demagogue
have formed a partners-hip, and the
lamb has lain clown with the lion.
And right here it might be said that
Joseph is no sheep.
British Columbian politics make
strange bedfellows and it may not be
long before Dunsmuir finds that the
bed isn't big enough for both him aid
Martin, and it may not be Martin who
will be kicked out to muke room.
A B. C. politician is like the flee,
who when you put your hand down
isn't there. Can history show a greater
burlcHjue of government than this
province has had for the past four
yenrs! We doubt it: for a collection
of petty intriguers, belly-aching side-
steppers antl huckstering cabalists the
gang in the IJ. O. Legislature grasps
the pnstry. Not one of them has shown
himself man enough to put up bis
knocking hammer, come out in the
light and declare himself. Joseph
Martin has enough spunk to sny
"Damu the pnblic," when his wants
differ from the country's, but the rest
damn the public without having the
spunk to say so.
What will Green, Houston and Taylor do now!   Will they take their medicine and still stay in the band wagon
while Martin holds  one rein?     Green
was elected to  oppose Dunsmuir, in a
constituency that would havo nothing
to do with Martin.     When he bad to
choiise between them he   choso Dunsmuir as the lesser of two evils.    Now
that they bave joined forces it is up to
Green to get out and help defeat this
mongrel government.      When it   has
been defeated, if he acts  like a  man
and helps do it, he atands  some show
of reelection,  unless the country has
taken a tumble to itself and refuses to
send back a single one of thc members
of tbe'present Legislature.     By electing a  new set of men throughout, tbe
province stands every chance  to  win,
the present gang of political jobbers
having turned thb Legislature  into u
game of grab in which the biggest hog
and the greatest traitor have got tbe
plums.    Tho Nelson Tribune calls politics a game, but Houitou was not elected at a political gamester,  nor wai
Green sent to Victoria as oue.    There
is too much game and too little  business done at Victoria, too much looking for jobs and too little looking after
the interests of the country,  which is
going from bad  to worre.    One crowd
at Victoria bas squirmed into power,
the other crowd ia trying to squirm into their places, and that is all the difference that can be seen between them.
Aito a  policy,  neither side bothers
about such a thing.   Na one in this
constituency knows how Green stands
on any particular question, nor is he at
all  anxious to  declare   himself.     In
other constituencies it is the aame. As
a matter of fact the individual members
have no opinions before tbey meet in
oaucus and find oat how best they can
use their vote.   They are opportunists
every one of them.
It is time to call for a new deal with

Our criticism of the B 0 Year
Book was apparently piemature. It
appears that thn issue was not intended to be an altogether new edition,
but was the edition of 18l>7, with 125
pages of new matter. The volumes
were what waa left over of the 1897
editicn, which was not Usued by the
government but by R. E Grosnell,
who loat heavily in the publishing.
Having no available literature for the
Glascow and Pou-American Expositions, the government purchased the
edition, having the latest statistics
added, md binding the volumes in a
handsome red cloth binding. lliese
latest volumes contain even the cenau*
statistics   issued   only a few days tto.
Mr. Grosnell is now at work preparing a.new 1002 edition, which will
be thoroughly up-to-date. It is to be
hoped that he may lie more successful
iu disposing of this edition, a* the
compiling ofthe necessary statistics in
a work of tbis kind is a heavy  task.
