[Sl'KCIATj TO THE CHAIN.]  Kamloops, B. C, May 16.���The  three highwaymen who held-up and  robbed a Canadian Pacific passenger  train near this town on the morning  of Wednesday, May gth, were captured on Monday afternoon by a  posse of mounted provincial police  under Sergeant Wilson about a mile  from ���-���Douglas lake -.and-- were immediately "brought to Kamloops  and lodged in'jail. During a brief  desperate ' fight', which they put up  before surrendering one' of the rob:  bers was wounded' in the leg by a  rifle ball. Tlieleader of the highwaymen gives, his name as being  George Edwards, but the detectives  claim that he is none other than  the notorious Bill Miner who is  wanted for complicity in holding-up  and robbing the same train in September,- 1904. The other two highwaymen give the names of William  (SB  Dunn and Lewes Colquhoun. Tlie  three men claim to be' prospectors  and deny all knowledge of the late  hold-up. Both Dunn and Jidwards  correspond in every detail with the  descriptions given of two of the men  who perpetrated the hold-up and  some articles which were found in  their possession when searched are  said to have been taken from the  mail car at the time of the robbery.  Ozerki, Finland, May 17.���The  funeral of Father Gapon, whose  dead body was found hanging in a  house in the suburbs'of this cit}' on  Monday, took place Wednesday  afternoon.

Several other members of the, house  spoke most passionately in -favor of  the   abolition   of the death penalty,.  saying that the country has already  too   many tombs   and   that blood}'  and   oppressive    government    had'  caused over six  hundred unnecessary and unwarranted executions in  and about this city alone  since last.  December.     One   and   all   of   the  speakers said  that to obtain peace'  aud prosperity in the country these  things must cease.  Kamloops, B. C, May 18.���Sup*  erintendent Hussey of the Provincial  Police is so convinced that the three  prisoners now in jail' here are the'  passenger train hold-up men that he'  has called in all the search parties.  Hussey says he feels sure that they  are the men who' committed the.  hold-up of last week. Mail Clerk  McOuarrie on Wednesday night  positively identified Edwards as the  leader ol the gang. At the preliminary examination held Wednesday,  all three of the men were sentiiip  for trial.

On Wilson creek Kenneth McLaren and Peter Roco are hard at  work putting in a bed rock drain on  their ground. It is their intention  to cross-cut and prospect the creek  bottom and to tunnel the benches  and thereby prove the worth of the:  creek from a gold producing standpoint.  Work on the N. C. G. M. Company's clam, at Surprise lake is progressing very favorably. Although  considerable, frost was encountered  while excavating, that part of the  work was completed on Tuesday,  since which time the workmen have  been kept busy putting in the mud  sills for the sluice-ways and getting  the foundation started.  The Northern Mines Ltd., R. I.).  Fetherstonhaugh manager, have  this week completed the construction of a wing dam on Spruce creels  to protect their pit and ��� works during high water.

THE   LABORER   IS -WORTHY  OF HIS  HIRE.  Dr. Young' saw fit to have published in last issue a letter, under  the above heading, dealing with the  tnail service.  It is evident the worthy Dr. wrote  the lettcr'in cjuestion in a hurry and  '   without duly considering���which so  often  happens���the  article in True  CLAur which he was  so anxious to  ,     criticise.       ,-  The article, he complains,''-was  unfair'and ill considered���we join  issue with the Dr. The article under criticism referred to one tiin in  particular and the facts bear out  and justify our remarks.  The Dr., in championing the'mail  service, 'gives us the  history of another trip--a very arduous one with  out doubt���but is the Dr. as   broad  as he desires us to be.    Would it be  fair to judge all trips by the one he  mentions.    We think not  and,'-had  the Dr. no motive other  than  fairness  to the mail service, we feel he  did    neither   justice   to himself nor  Succeeded ' in ��� raising'   higher    the  opinions of our citizens in regard to  our mails.    We hope we appreciate  the Dr's. humor when he mentions  warm stoves���he evidently enjoys a  juost   intimate   acquaintance   with  the article in question.    But, while  on this subject, it would be- as well  to point out a few facts.  When one ��� contracts to do a  certain thing or carry out a known  .undertaking he, if he does not,  should know what is before-him���  the difficulties, the hardship and  the cost, and in making his contract  he is treated���and properly so���as  having taken all these conditions  into consideration. The same rule  should apply to government jobs as  well- as to individual contracts, and  we know of no magic whereby a  government contractor is placed on  an easier footing than that of an  individual���others may; they are  probably in "the know."  It is true that the life of a., mail  carrier is not a bed of roses. It is  equally true that all vocations have  their hardships and trying times-  some more, some less���and so it  will go on till the millennium; but  this is 1906, and while one may  sympathize with- the hardships a  mail carrier has to bear, it must be  always borne in mind that he is the  chooser of the vocation, knowing  full well what he has to expect in  the way of storms and fatigue. If  thus he carries out his contract, for  which he is' paid at his own figure,  is 'there any greater credit due him  than to the sweep who uiiderfa'kes  to clean, our chimneys'for'a dollar]  Some one has  been   looking' up  the past of John Alexander  Dowie,  Elijah   the Restorer, and finds that  hcdias a prison record.     In Australia Dowie served in a convict   gang  with chain and  ball attached to his  ankle.    His   offence  was obtaining  money under false pretences.    After  his liberation he became a preacher,  visited   British  Columbia   and   delivered sermons.     He was then in a  condition   of extreme poverty with  a   wife  and   two small children dependent upon him.    Gladstone, '.he  unkissed, was one of those children.  The family managed .to reach   Chicago   and   a few years afterward lie  developed into a  healer   by prayer.  He prospered and set up a carriage  and pair with a coachman and outriders and arrayed himself in purple  and fine linen.'   Zion  City was   the  product    of   his   energetic   brain.  When his only daughter was fatally  burned by the explosion of a  spirit  lamp   with' the heat of which she  was frizzing her  bangs, -Dowie   refused   to   have a   physician called,  and when she died he declared that  her burning was an  act  of-Divine  judgment,    because  she had disregarded   his   mandate  ^uot   to   use  alcohol in any form.'
