The Opposition press is at present endeavoring to stir up a racial quarrel a-

stock-in-trade loyalty is teeming with
articles intended to embitter the Canadian-French and in anticipation uf a

English speaking voters against Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Minister Tsrte. The
voter not blinded by party blinkers will
be loath to adopt the expressed ideas of
this press. Regarding ilio.o report..

Chicago, Oct. 111.—Masked robbers held
up train No. 9, of the Northwestern railroad between Maple Park and DcKalb
and shot at Dan White, the engineer, ran
away with the engine and blew open the
express c-ier and safe. When the robbers
had rilled the car they di-cappeared.
Train No. 9 forms part of thc fast transcontinental mail which was recently established between Now York and San Fran-*
cisco. The run is mnde from Chicago tei
Council Bluffs nn a' Schedule exceeding a
mile a minute. It has been the general
custom to cany only two canine eon-
taining express matter and the other mail.
Train No. tt left thc Northwestern depot
with Dan White as engineer. No stops
were scheduled between Chicago and De-
Kielh. At Maple Park, 50 miles from Chi-
aago It was discovered that tower "\V," at
Elburne, was cither out of order or was
not giving the right signal. Dan White
closed the throttle quickly and brought
the train to a standstill. The train was
midway between Elburne and Maple Park.
White had hardly brought the train to
a standstill when two masked men jumped
nn to the stern and pointed guns at him
and the fireman. "
"Throw up your hands!"1 they shouted.
The railroad men did so.
The two robbers detachod the engine
from the rest of the train, and White was
told to pull out. The robbers ordered him
to take hia engine two miles np the track.
Then he attempted to make a fight and recapture his engine. He st niggled manfully. Finally one of the robbers shot at
him but failed to hit him.
ln the meantime, four other men had
attacked the conductor and brakeman.
Numerous shots were fired to intimidate
them. The conductor was unable to make
any resistance as he was told he would
be killed.
One of the hrakemen managed to escape
in the darkness and raced to Elburne,
where he managed to aend the alarm to
the train dispatcher in Chicago.
The robbers, after overpowering the conductor,   ordered   tbe  express  messenger;
Frank Hobson, to admit them to the car.
"You open up that car," one of the robbers shouted, "or we'll blow it up."
Rack from the car came a shout: "You
try V force it open and I'll shoot thc first
man who shows hia head."
A volley of shots was let fly, and after
several bullets bad whizzed past his head,
the express messenger opened up the car.
They put revolvers to his head and compelled him to give up the keys to tne local
safe. Tbey then blew open the door oi the
local safe with dynamite, the explosion
wrecking the car. The robbers grabbed
all the money and express packages they
could and Heel.
Although it is impossible to give with
any accuracy the amount, it is estimated
by thc officers of the American Express
Company in Chicago, that there was $23,-
000 in thc safes. This amount was staled
by General .Manager . Anrisdel of the
American Express Company, to have been
•in the car in cash alone. The amount of
jewelry, etc., Mr. Anrisdel said he could
not guess at.
The news of the hold-up was received in
Chicago immediately. Word wns sent at
once to the Superintendent and a special
was ordered made up. Messengers were
Dispatched for Detective Reilly, chief of
the specal police of the Northwestern system.
When the train dispatcher was notified
he gave orders to freight No. 118, bound
east, to stop at Geneva and return to the
scene of the hold-up. The trainmen of No.
118 had noticed No. 9 standing on the
track with a detached engine as they went
by, but thought nothing of it.
When the freight crew reached tower
W, they found the operator bound, gagged
and tied to a chair. When released he
gave the lirst real information to the oflieials. Ue said four men had oome to the
tower and asked him the number of the
next twin going west. They wunted to
know if it was not No. 9, but the operator
says he told them it was No. 119.
The robbers then told the operator he
was a fool, that they knew better. To show
the operator they had laid their plans
thorongUy and know what they were
talking about, they pointed guns ut his
head and told him if he. made t :*ove they
would kill him, They tied hm. up wilh
ropes, stuffed a towel in his mouth and
told him if he was a good fellow he would
escape without being hurt. They then
set tbe signals which caused No. 9 to slow-
The train dispatcher made repeated efforts to,reach the Maple Park operator

to the Yaqui indian war:
Military scouting parties reaching the

that place near Sahuripa. It is estimated
that there are fully 2500 Indians there at

object of their concentration st tbat point
is to move into the Yaqui country st an
early date, probably the middle of next
week, and then open active and vtgorOvs
warfare on the Indians with a view nf
driving them out and ending the war at
This mobilization of Mexican troops has
been conducted as quietly as possible with
a view of sweeping down on the Indians
while they are still scattered thn nigh the
Yaqui country in small bands, taking
them by surprise and sweeping tbcm off
thc face of the earth, the order having
been given to take no prisoners.

I_.mil,in, Oet. 18.—The gradual cutting
off of outlying points at the scene of ho.,

communication reduced tbe news obtainable to the minimum. Thus far, however,
no reliable information has been received
of any actual fighting except at Kraaipun
and occasional exchange of shots at various outpost.. There is no lack of circumstantial stories regarding fighting at various points, but these are scarcely published
before they are denied. Tlie only salient
facts in this morning's telegrams ure that
the Boers have advanced beyond Newcastle and formed a laager near Danhaits-

that Kimberly is isolated and probably invested.
Khnberly has thus become the immediate center of interest. The last message
from Kimberly prior lo the cutting of the

The good people of New Denver
know, after reading Robert Thomson's
letter in the Nelson Mine*-, what it is
to have "A Slocan Pioneer-' iu tlnir

the only one anxious to claim lhe
authorship is about thc only one who

Such is the demand for men around
the Rainy River district in Ontsrio
that contractors there are stealing each
others' men. Men coming in under
contract are being off-mil bounties by
rival employers and are reaping a big
harvest by jumping their jobs.
When Ontario men can earn $3.00
a day at home, how many would be
willing to come out here to work for
the same wage? it
'It is a moral certainty that we wilt
have both Federal and Provincial elections within six months. If the Conservatives of this constitr.eni'y intend
to oppose thc sitting mcm.er, and it is
hard to see what he lion done toentitle
him to a longer lease of office, Ihey

of tho enmity fett by tho Conservative

And still the strike is on and most
of the old pioduicrs around this camp
are shut down, with only a few men
oi their payrolls. Although the old
standbys are doing next to nothing,
new properties are forging ahead and
some of them bid fair (o overtake and
surpass the old producers in the a-
mciuiit of their development and shipments. The Noonday mine, although
one of the youngest in the district,
now holds the second place in the list.
of shippers, being only surpassed by
the Wakefield mine, and oven that big
producer will have to hustle to hold
its place at the head of the list.
With tho big mines employing only
a few men there aro nevertheless as
many men at work as usual, and when
the big mines start up, which they are
confidently expected to do within a
very few weeks, Bilverton will be once
again the boom camp of the Slocan.

The pack mule Is quite as much an institution uh tha team mulo, and is absolutely indispensable in tho mountains.
Mule packing is a line art, and with n
well trained animal and a skillful packer
you can safely transport anything from a
piano to a hag of oats.
When tho packer bas finished his job
in an artistic manner the animal may
buck or back, kick or rear, or roll, but
he cannot rid himself of his burden, and
ho finally gives it up in despair.
The most serious objection to the
mule, which you sometimes find in human beings also, is the delusiou that he
can sing. One w bo has never heard n
mnle.solo cannot appreciate the extent
oi bis mistake; but, like everything else
about a mule, his song is sti icily orig

"We dassenllry to riile the mule t

teamster, without uolicing the interruption, "fer   neither of us wu'n't   quit
