The Liberals carried lioth Kootenay
and   Yale-Cariboo  in   the dominion
elections on Tuesday, so that British
Columbia sends a solid contingent to!
Ottawa to support Laurier.   In both
ridings the Socialists lost their deposits,   Baker, in Kootenay, making I
the, stronger run.   Galliher's majority
Is simply immense, approaching thej
KKJO mark, while Hoss, in Yale, had a
hard light.   Contrary to expectation,
Rossland went   Liberal, and Nelson
gave Galliher a  bouncing majority.
Almost all of the Conservative points
went Liberal.
It was a beautiful day for the contest and much spirit was evinced locally.   A small vote was polled here, I
117 ballots  being cast.   Three Baker j
votes were spoiled and 1 Galliher. Thej
Socialists rustled  their  votes in good |
style and led  the poll.   The Ottawa
mine and   the str.  Slocan  gave the
Lib( nils their lead over the Conservatives.   Returns were posted up at the
Arlington   and   Madden   hotels and
■were eagerly scanned by many.

Morrissey was visited by an appalling disaster on Friday, when 14 men
lost their lives from an explosion in
mine No. 1, known as the Carbonado,
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. The
killed are: William Jenkins, Lewis

The explosion occurred just at noon.
Fifteen men were working in that
part of the mine and only one escaped. He was D. Dareev, a driver, who
was on his way out when the explosion occurred. He was thrown vio
lcntly down, hut succeeded iu reaching the mouth of tho entry and was

Immediately upon lieing notified of
the explosion, were on the ground al!
afternoon directing the work of recovering the bodies.
This is the second serious explosion
to have occurred at Morrissey, the
previous one taking place a year ago,
wheu four men lost their lives. There
is one pathetic incident in connection
with the disaster. The family of W.
Jenkins, one of the victims, had only
arrived from the old country a week
ago, and the wife and four children
arc heartbroken.

Music Hall, Friday eve:iii,',',was fairly
well attended. A. C. Smith acted as
chairman, ll. W. Hanningtou. of
Nelson, was the only s* Baker and he
put up a straight talk for Mr. Mackintosh. The speaker labored under
great difficulties, in that he was far
from being a well man. and several
times he had to take hla scat,'finally
delivering much of his address while
sitting. A strong .stimulant was procured for him and he eventually recovered his strength, concluding his
remarks with his wonted vigor and
force. Mr. Hanniugton's plucky con-
duet won the meeting, which closed
with three rousing cheers fur tbe Conservative candidate.
Saturday evening the Socialist party
held their closing .gathering of the
campaign, when Al Teeter and Candidate Baker addressed the electorate

Kuti in sight of Celebrated Cody and .inker luxe.
On Tuesday «*ui important appeal
case was decided by the full court of
the province. Docksteader vs Clark
was a case whieh, under different
names, has been before the courts for
many years. It has superceded the
Callahan vs Copeland case for practically the same property, the original
Cody and Joker claims. These were
restaked, Clark calling his claini the
Wild Hose, and Docksteader naming
his the Colonial.
S. S. Taylor, for Docksteader, argued tlmt the No. I stake of the Wild
Hose claim was on crown granted
land, as was also the largest portion
of the location line. Both contentions
have lieen upheld. Originally the
case was tried at Nelson before Mr.
Justice Irving, who decided in favor
of Docksteader. Judgment is affirmed on appeal, Mr. Justice Martin dissenting. The Colonial is held to be
valid and the Wild Rose nnil and
Fourteen similar suitsiare pending in
connection with portions of the same
ground, and all are practically decided by this judgment. The disputed
ground is situated near Cody.
.Settler* for Canadn.
A big influx of Frenchmen to British Columbia is predicted by A. Fox,
of Montreal, who is in Victoria inquiring alxiut land. He says 26,000
people will come to Canada as soon as
the arrangements which he is now
making are carried out. This emigration, which is being operated through
some big agencies iu Franco, is being
stimulated by recent differences between the government of France and
the Vatican, which devout Catholics
regard as persecution. Fox says most
ol the emigrants are agriculturists and
vine dressers, and he has opened negotiations for a large tract of land in
Okanagan valley, which will be devoted to vineyards, and where he estimates COOO of them will settle. The
tigriculturists will be settled on the
ranching lands in East Kootenay. No
less than 12.IKK) are all ready to come.

Ab Illostrntlon That Gives Some Idea
of Its Llttleneaa.
How large is an atom? "Perhaps the
simplest though not the most exact
way of arriving ut a rough estimate uf
the kIzo of atoms is liy measuring the
thickness of a soup bubble film where
it is as thin as possible just before It
bursts," says u writer. "Sueh a Mini if
composed of aloms must be something
like a pebble wall. Now, a pebble wall
would not stand if it were not several
pebbles thick, and if we bad reason to
suppose that lt was about u dozen pebbles thick we could easily make an es
tiinate of the size of a pebble by measuring tbe thickness of the wall. That
i.s the case with the thinnest region of
n soap film. It is found to bave a very
definite uniform thickness. It is the
thinnest thing known, and by i 'lined
optical means its thickness can be accurately measured. It must contain
not less than something like a dozen
atoms iu its thickness, and yet it is
only about the twenty-millionth of an
inch iu thickness by direct measurer
ment. So that the diameter of an atom
comes out between one two-hundredth-
millionth of an inch. In other words,
from about 200,000.000 to 300.000.000
of atoms can lie edge to edge in a
linear inch."
The Reason Ther Grow So Abundantly Thrni,nini,il  the World.
Grasses are widely diffused throughout tbe world in order to provide
abundantly for the sustenance of a
very large portion of the animal king-
"Grasses," nays Pa ley, "are nature's

birds  upon their  smaller seeds,   men

Tbe more their leaves are consumed
the more tbelr roots Increase, nnd the

The amoeba, probably the simplest

Tonic   Treatment   for   Indigestion—
Kew Strength for the Stomach
From Xefr, Rich lied lilood.
Tlio Tonic Treatment—that is tho
latest nnd only ecientific cure for indigestion. All the leading doctors of
Europe nnd America are using it
with sensational success. N6 more
purgatives, no more pepsin, no more
potent foods, no more long diet lists
saying "Tbou shalt not eat this or
thnt." No nioTO of all this—nothing,
in fact, but plenty of new, pure rich
red blood to tone the liver and give
•he stomach strength for its work.
That is the Tonic Treatment for Indigestion.
The tonic treatment is based CS
the new idea that drugs which digest
the food for the stomach really weaken its powers through disuse. Thc
digestive organs can never do their
work properly until they are strong
enough to do it for themselves. Tho
only thing that can give the stomach
and tho liver new strength is good
blood—and the only thing that can
actually make new blood is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Tale People.
Tliey have long been known as the
greatest blood-building tonic in the
world, and all the highest medical
authorities agree that tho one scientific cure for indigestion is the Tonic
Treatment. The marvellous success
of the treatment has been proved in
every corner of the Dominion. One of
tho latest witnesses is Mr. Joseph
ltochctte, St. Jerome, Que., who
snys: "I simply hated the thought
of food. Of course I had to force
myself to ent, but afterwards I always suffered with dull, heavy pains
in the stomach. I seemed to be bilious as well, and this caused severe
headaches, which further aggravated
my unfortunate position. I grew
pale, fell away in weight and the
troublo seemed to be undermining
my whole constitution. I tried several remedies, but without success; a
doctor whom I consulted advised absolute rest, but this was out of tho
question, ns I had to work for my
living. Fortunately for me, one of
my friends advised me to use Dr.
Williams' Tink Pills, and I -Tedded
to do so. After taking the pills for
several weeks thcro was a decided
improvement in my condition. Not
only was my digestion better, h\i\
my genernl health improved in every
way. New blood seemed to be coursing through my veins, bringing new
health and strength every day. I
took eight boxes of Dr. Williams'
Pink Tills altogether, and those who
see mo now would never know I hnd
sen an unwell dny in my life. I owo
my splendid health to these pills, anjj
strongly advise overy dyspeptic or
weak porson to lose no time in taking thom."
Mr. Pochette's statement ls a
strung tribute to the Tonic Treatment. Dr. Willinms' I'ink Pills cured
him because tbey actually made now
rich blood for bim. Theso pills go
right down to the root of thc trouble in the blood nnd curo thnt. The
now bin,„| the.v make carries healing
health nml strength to every part of
the body. Thut i.s the new Tonic
Treatment, and the highest medical
authorities    now    recommend    this
t realm,'lit for all tho Common ailments such ns ana,'inin, headaches,
backaches, rheumatism, sciatica, nou-
rolgia, nervousness, dyspepsia and
general weakness. These nre all Caused  by bad blood nnil therefore are all
cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Vou can got these pills from any
medlcino dealer or by mail at SOo a
box, or six boxes for |2.60 by writing to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

Wild Bill, whose real name was
James Hlckok, first came west iu 1807
and drove an ox team on the plains for
Majors & Russell in 1S00. He subsequently engaged himself to tbe overland stage company as stock tender nnd
was put in charge of a new stage station on Rock creek, near the old Mc-
Kandlas station, whicb was generally
known as Robbers' Roost. Tbls was
the headquarters for the McKandlas
gang, a crowd that bad held together
since tbe Missouri-Kansas border ruffian days and generally bad things
their own way. A man named Kicklin,
and n number one stagehand, was the
superintendent. He tried to buy out
the McKandlas station; but, failing in
tbis, be built a new one near by, putting young Hickok in charge. Up to
tbat time he bad uever experienced
trouble witb any one and was not likely to have friction, especially witb tbe
old station keeper, McKandlas, or his
In tbe winter of 1800-01 McKandlas
and his nephew and four other men
passed by the new station on horseback, leading an old man who was
afoot. Tbey bad a rope around tbe
old fellow's neck, and occasionally they
would take a few turns around the
born of tbe saddle, make a run on the
rope and jerk tho old man down and
drag bim on the ground until he was
nearly dead. The ouly spite they had
against him was that be was a North
Methodist preacher. If Wild Bill was
anything be was an abolitionist and
free soiler and loyal to the United
JStntes. The McKandlas crowd was
planning to mnke a raid on several stations to secure tbe stock and go south.
They told young Hlckok they would
take the stock. He replied that be
would be there.
Wben they returned late ln the evening two stopped at tbe corral, two
went to tbe front nnd two to the back
door of tbe cabin or hut. Hickok told

A Boa Con.trletor That Ha. a Very
Deceptive Tall.
Every now nud then somo traveler
tells of a two bended snake which exists in Egypt, and whenever the uur-
rator hasn't seen tbe snake himself,
be is more or less disposed to assert
that thero really is1 a snake with two
beads in Egypt, because he has been
told nbout it by many reliable persons.
Indeed, sometimes a traveler who
bas actually caught a glimpse of the
snake is likely to declare that it truly
is two headed, for the serpent certainly
appears to bo so wben seen only by
chance.       • . .
It ls only when the snake ls actually
taken up and examined closely tbat tbe
truth is revealed.
i'he tw'o headed snako Is not a poisonous serpent. It is only a boa constrictor, and it is fairly common, llut
lt is so secretive that lUhldes away in
its sandy burrows almost constantly.
It is strangely formed in so fur that
its tail, instead of tapering off to a
point as the tails of other snakes do,
widens out into a bludgeon shape, thus
making it look so utterly unlike n tail
that it is almost impossible to think
it is anything but a bead when tho
snake is seen for only a moment.
To add to the deception, jugglers
catch these boas and paint jaws and
eyes on the tail. Tbe work is so carefully done that only a trained observer
can distinguish the real head from the
false. Thus the story of the two beaded snnke has obtained wide circulation, and has even crept into the books
of otberwiao accurate writers.
Cut the second "heaii" is ouly a tail
after all.—Exchange.

dean was confounded and for tbo ln-

Nelson, a thriving little English town,
ta a living instance of the value of a

Trafalgar some tinker, tailor or othor
person established a tiny wayside inn
and called it after tbe naval hero.
There was nobody on the spot from
whom to expect custom, but the road
led to and from populous districts.
Travelers stopped at the place, and
presently a cottage or two begun to
rise, then more of them, und tho name
of tho public house nnswered for the
