The recent trial of Joshua Bell for  the murder of Annie Allan was full of  painful and sickening revelations. It  told a story of the underworld full of  the play of'the worst of human passions  Here was a man of good appearance,  of good health, of more than average  intelligence, a victim to his own uncontrollable passions. He had seen  much of life's hard features, had  mixed with the roughest element of  society but held, he claimed, in his  heart a profound love for the woman  whose life he took. Out of his love  grew jealousy, out of jealousy grew  hate^and .^out^jof^hate^grew,^ murder..  He had allowed his mind to dwell on  the matter for months and years and  when the moment was ripe he demanded  the sacrifice. A soldier in the army at  an early age he had doubtless learned  to look on life with little reverence.  Twice that we know of now, he had  held a fellow's life a trivial affair, and  whether in defence of his own or not,  had attempted to take it.  Inured to life's worst, the good in  him had been suppressed, and it only'  required the exigency to find him ready  for the worst of crimes. And yet there  must have been much of good in Joshua  Bell. He could not have feigned the  emotion he displayed when describing  Annie Allan's death. Strong men  like he, with hardened hearts, do not  shed tears for effect. He doubtless  loved his victim but unschooled in the  art art of self-control, he sent her to a  swift and terrible death, when persuaded she would not marry him.  And so the mandate of the court must  be met. Nothing remained forjudge  and jury but to do what ihey did. The  lesson of Bell's life is written in letters  so large that they who run may read.

This was an action under  tiinployei er's Liability Act for the loss  of an arm.- It is understood that the  compensation sought was S3500 but  that a settlement was made for $600,  It was eleven o'clock Thursday eve-  nieg when an expectant throng frat  crowded the court room to its fullest  extent heard the -words uttered that  meant so much to Joshua Bell. At  twenty minutes past five the case had  gone to the jury who for over five  hours had been consulting with only  such seriousness as men charged with  so great a trust might consult, over  the nature of the verdict they should  find. During all these hours men and  women sat and stood patiently awaiting the verdict. Joshua Bell. who  must have lost all hope when he heard  the judge's charge to the jury, if not  before, was in his cell. The officers of  }he law stood about now and then  responding to calls from the jury room  when this cr that piece of typewritten  evidence was called for.  A few minutes before eleven a tap  was heard on the door of the jury room.  An officer opened* the door and the  crowd knew by his looks that the jury  was ready to report. A profound hush  fell upon the crowd that had been  growing restless and0holding consultations in whispers1 here and there.  The'jury returned to their seats'.-." The  prisoner was-again placed at the bar.  The judge took.his seat on the bench.  The face of the prisoner looked no  more serious than that of judge or  jury. A man's life was in the balance  and he whose life was being weighed  felt the burden no more than they who  weighed it.  The jury roll was called and in quiet  hushed voice each answered to his  name. Upon being asked if they were  ready to return a verdict, the foreman  arose and amidst a silence that was  awe itself said: "We find the prisoner  guilty of the crime charged, but  strongly recommend him to the mercy  of the court."  The judge evidently felt most keenly  the solemn "obligation -laid-upon -him,  for it was with deep emotion that he  proceeded to pass the sentence that  doubtless meant the extinction of a  human life. Asking the prisoner to  arise he said in effect in slow measured tones: "Joshua Bell you have  been tried for the murder of Annie  Allan and a jury of your fellows have  according to evidence submitted found  you guilty of the crime charged. I do  not think they could have done otherwise. They have recommended you  for mercy and I shall forward this  recommendation, but I would advise  you not to rely too much ou any clemency being shown, but to spend the  time left you in getting your temporal  affairs iu order and in preparing for  the future. The sentence of the court  is, that you Joshua Bell, for the crime  upon which you have been convicted,  be taken to the place whence you come  and thence taken to the place of execution and that on the 13th day of January uextyou be hanged by the neck  until you are dead."  Joshua Bell stood apparently less  moved by the sentence than many who  heard it pronounced, and after shaking  hands with the attorney who had plead  so valiantly for his acquital was conducted by the officers to his cell below  (stairs, while the crowd passed out of  fny court -join silent and awed like  'i{n, -jStelize they stand in the  ofgeath'.  vs '-jich had lasted four days  rder of Annie Allan, in  2th  last.      The  ted    by   Ernest  |   id   Forks,  while A. M.  V reenwood defended  against terrible odds for the life of his  client.  The only close at hand eye witness  of the tragedy was Annie Swan, who  described in detail the events of the  three days pieceeding its culmination  in which the murderer and his victim  were concerned, and most particularly  of the last morning. She told of the  conversation and events that led up to  the wretched affair, of Annie Allan's  attempt at escape, of Joshua Bell's  stabbing her to the heart as she lay on  the ground.  Another eye witness to part of the  affair, but from a distance, corroborated tne story of the struggle, and told  of seeing the hand raised that struck  the fatal blow.  Other witnesses told of having heard  Bell threaten he would kill Annie  Allan did she persist in her refusal to  marry him, and the accused confessed  that only a short time before her death  she had again refused. The story told  by the prisoner in his own defence  was that the woman's death was the  accidental result of a play'ful struggle  for the possession of his pocket knife.,  He allege-S that the. knife,; was tn-rhe-  hand of Annie Allan at-the titnei and  that she accidentally in the struggle  stabbed herself to the heart.  Medical testimony was submitted to  show that the fatal blow was struck  from above the deceased and could not  have been inflicted, from its very  nature, by her own hand.  It transpired during the trial that  Bell had shot two men in Montana,  neither of whom had died, in one instance being acquitted, in the other  being convicted with a short sentence.  The prisoner was at times deeply affected while telling his version of the  terrible story, verifying in appearance  the devotion he claimed he felt for  Annie Allan, whose life he took in a  .moment-.of-hate.-**^^-^^^*^----    -*^^-=^-.-,  The jury in the case consisted of:  George Chappie, foreman, C. H. Archibald, F. W. McLaine, Wm. Green,  Neil Lamont, Arthur M. Wilson, Randolph G. K. Stuart, Henry P. Large,  Edward Hardy, J. S. McDonald, C. W.  H. Sansotn, Wm. Bonthrun.  Those who listened to the evidence  in the case must approve the findings  of the jury.  MY FRIEND FROM INDIA.  \  met  pfesfev  The  was fi  Phoe.  Crow.

"My Friend From India" is an  excellent comedy, full of crispdialogue  and amusing situations.  Manager Walker has gathered together a dozen clever actors and  actresses who give an entertaining  performance. Special credit is due  Mr. Earle Sterling for his portrayal of  the title role. He was ably seconded  by Mr. Chas. DelVicchio as the ambitious but illiterate Kansas City pork  packer. Mr. William Yule played two  widely different roles���an Irish policeman and an amorous missionary���with  splendid humor. The ''Tilly" of Teab  la Force was a highly amusing characterization. Her dialect toast was  much appreciate.?. The other members  of the company gave creditable delineations of the roles assigned them.  Walker's comedians gave such thorough satisfaction that their return on  Nov. 1st will be awaited with pleasure.

C Blair announced his intention of resigning his  position. He said that it would be the  last session of the commission at  which he would occupy the position of  chairman and of a member of the  board. He said he was going to work  which would be more congenial to him  but gave no hint as to what it w.isl  and added that he. had no complaint to  make. He expressed regret at parting  with his colleagues.  Blair is not going into politics and it  is likely that he will be professionally  employed by one of the leading railway companies.  B. C.

"Mr. R. L. Borden, in one of his  policies," said Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  "suggest that we extend the Intercolonial to tiie Pacific coast, and he asserts that our Grand Trunk Pacific will  cost $117,000,000. or even more than  that. From 1868 to 1902, a period of 25  years, the working expenses of the Intercolonial amounted to $92,600,000,and  the receipts to $84,000,000. If the interest is added, and calculating it at about  $2,000,000 a year, then the loss to the  people of Canada by government operation of the Intercolonial during this  25 years was almost 560,000,000. If  this loss has been endured by the peo  pie of Canada, how mucn will it be if  the line is extended to the coast?  "They had heard a good deal in the  past of the folly of public ownership.

If we understand the position  of the Toronto News aright, it  supports the policy of government ownership of railways in a  general way. It professes also  to see merits in Mr. Borden's  criticism of the Grand Trunk Pacific project. In its issue of Sept.  23, in an article on "The Railway Policy," it has this to say:  '"The general attitude of the  Conservative party towards Mr.  Borden's declaration for State  ownership of. the transcontinental  railway is remarkable. Outside  of Mr. Borden himself and one or  two western conservative journals  there is hardly any advocacy of  the leader's policy."  Now these remarks of the  News are unquestionably justified by the facts. The most influential elements in the Conservative party refuse to countenance the government ownership  platform, for any other than  purely election purposes. Mr.  Borden is angling for a certain  vote supposed to exist amongst  citizens of socialistic views. The  Montreal Gazette, Sir Mackenzie  Bowell, Mr. E. B. Osier and  other leading lights of the Conservative party are perfectly willing to receive these voters, but  will take precious good care never  to permit the platform to take  legislative form. They have before them the illuminating lesson  of the Manitoba Conservatives  catching the prohibition vote and  then telling it to go hang.  But why is it that we find the  Conservative party unwilling to  seriously advocate the policy of  its leader. The answer is found  in the same editorial from which  we have quoted. The News tells  us that, at the last session of  Parliament, the Grand Trunk  promoters demanded and received  from the government an "enormous betterment" of the contract  entered into the previous session,  and that thereupon Mr. Borden  "' *hiet"th^sit-uationT'witK'a bold  declaration for public construction of the whole undertaking.  He told the country that if.we  had to meet nine-tenths of the  cost, meaning probably nine-  tenths of the liability, it would  ' be better to meet the other tenth  also, and own the whole road;  and that the people must choose  between a government-owned  railway or a railway-owned government."  If the editor of the News, who  has given the question of railway  transportation close study for  many years, does not understand  what Mr. Borden means, can only  guess what he "probably means"  then we ask what in the name of  common sense is the average  elector going to say about it?  The two statements thus epitomized by the News are Mr.  Borden's platform at this election. He repeats them in erery  speech, and they are repeated,  with parrot-like reiteration, in  the Conservative press daily and  weekly from coast to coast.  The first statement of Mr. Borden's is: "If we have to pay  nine-tenths of the cost, why not  pay the other tenth and own the  road?" Mr. Borden may vary the  expression slightly, but that is  what he means and that is precisely what he wants the country  to understand he means. We  challenge the News to deny this.  There is no "meaning probably"  something else and entirely different about it. People are not  fools. They know the impression that Mr. Borden is asking  them to accept, and they also  know that his statement is not  only not true but is the exact  opposite of the truth. Because  the contract clearty provides that  verv much less than one-tenth of  the cost shall be actually paid by  the government. About ttih  there is not the slightest doubt,  and to reverse the fact is simply  an act of dishonesty.  If the statement is not untrue  then it is obviously a stupid interpretation of the contract. In  either case Mr. Borden is not  worthy to lead the conservative  party.  The solemu deliverance about  the.necessity of choosing between  a government-owned railway and  a railway-owned government is a  jingle of words, clever no doubt  but ancient (having long been  used by the Kansas populists),  and somewhat obscure. But the  News, as an independent journal,  is at liberty to use them a dozen  times a day if it thinks fit. But  we protest against their use by  genuine old-fashioned Tor}*- newspapers like the Mail and Empire,  the Montreal Gazette, the Ottawa citizen and others which for  eighteen long years supported a  government (and how support an  opposition) at Ottawa owned by  the Canadian Pacific Railway if  ever a government or an opposition was owned by a railway on  this footstool, excepting, of  course, the absolute, undisputed  and undisputable ownership of  the Conservative government-of  Manitoba by the Canadian Northern.���Winnipeg Free Press.  more years of it may mean for Canada ���  they can only conjecture. Eight i  years of Liberal rule has g-iven Can-  apa confidence at home and esteem  abroad. What Laurier has begun, the  people will see Laurier continue���a  policy of great development and  growth. When trade is declining,  credit becoming prejudiced, public  debt increasing, party promises broken  and corruption permedthig the administration of* affairs people naturally  look to a change of government for  redress, but when the opposite of :i 11  these obtains the mind of man is loo  logical, despite the sophistries of i lie  placeseeker to make any change. It  would be contrary to all laws of self-  interest; or public policy to * shift governments at such a time as this. No  motive appears tor such a course, save  the motive of the'ambitious one,'out of  office and power, to again get.back into  control. But the people may be depended upon to serve their 'own interests rather.than seek to aggrandize  ihe ambitious fellows, tired of being  in opposition.  THE WAR.  Some Conservatives are giving  utterances to views favoring construction of a government road  across the continent. This is not  their party policy. Sir Charles  Tupper said in the House of Com-  mons in 1897: ' 'Whether Liberals  or Conservatives were in power I  would deplore in the strongest  manner any attempt in this country, by any government, I care  not who they are, or who they  are composed of, to construct another government railway.  RETIREMENT OF HON. A. G. BLAIR.  The Dominion of Canada loses much  by the retirement of Hon. A, G.-Blair  from his important position of chairman of the Railway Commission.  Men of Mr. Blair's ability and experience are few in Canada. His retirement first from politics was a loss to  his party and the public service and  his present withdrawal from his high  official position is an equal loss to the  administration of so important a public  trust. Mr. Blair gives no intimation  as to his immediate plans but they  must be definitely known and appear  favorable to admit of his leaving a  position that would appear congenial  and for which he was so eminently  fitted. The hope of the Conservatives  that he would join their ranks and  assist in the' party's redemption appears doomed to disappointment.  The terrible tragedy of the east still  goes on. Slav and Jap are still in the  work of-killing. Men are falling by  thousand's but neither side shows signs  of Weakening. Battles that last a  week or more are rare in ihe world's  history. It remains for these hitter  days of Peace Congresses and dreams  to witness a blood}' battle extending  over a period of S or 10 days, day and  night almost. The story of the battle  of Liaoyarig was 'a' surfeit of blood to  the reader, but Liaoyang 'has been  eclipsed by Mukden. And still the  armies are at it. Scarce time to bury  the . dead. No time to mourn the  50,000 dead. Russian pride and ambition one the one hand, Japan's struggle  for existence on the other are exigencies that admit of no delay, and so  while the faces of yesterday's dead  still lie white on the field to-day is  dealing death to thousands more. The  plains and passes '"of Manbhuria are  being drenched, with blood, blood shed  in atonement for the blunders of men  who never see the battlefield.. For  nearly nine months now this libation  of blood has been pouring out to the  god of war and no sign yet appears to  indicate the offering at an end. On  sea and on land the advantage has  been with the Jap thus far. The wonder is that his successes have been  almost uninterrupted. It will be  greater wonder should they continue.  Russia surely' must soon win something large or the spinto'f;1t'ffa_troops''  will be broken.  After all what a blind, stubborn  | fighting machine the Slav must be to  go on day after day, week after week,  unflinchingly against an enemy that  appears to be his better. Neither side  has right to complain of strategy.  Neither side anything to be ashamed  of in the matter of the army's bravery.  The whole civilized world looks on  and yearns for peace. Japan appears  willing to catch the first symptom of  couciliatio'n by her foe, but Russia  wounded and smarting, confident in  her millions says, "Victory, and not  intervention, alone will satisfy,'.'  MOTTOES WITH MEANING-  LIBERAL VICTORY SIRE  Advices from all parts of the Dom  inion point to a decisive victory for  the cause of liberalism and progress in  the coming elections. The Laurier  ministry will be returned to power  with an increased majority. Incited  by the party's clean and progressive  past, the people are determined to continue the same policy and progression into the future. The nature of  the Liberal party's policy the people  now know, the measure of  what  four  We reproduce below the mottoes that  were inscribed on the'-banners that decorated the walls of Massey hall, Toronto, on the evening of the 14th inst.,  the occasion being a  reception to Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier.     We  regret that we  cannot  reproduce   the   speech  of   Sir  Wilfrid or describe the enthusiasm of  the event.   The former was peerless  among the utterances of the campaign  thus far and the latter hitherto unpar-  alled  in  the staid  City of the Lake.  "Good Times."  "Listen to the Hum.".  "Sec Our Tall Chimneys Now."  "Ciieap Postage and a Surplus."  "Do You Feel 'em iu Your Pocket?"  "No Soup Kitchens Under Laurier."  "Maintain the British  Preference."

No attempt 'will ;be made to discuss  the general issues of the campaign in  this address. Since receiving the Liberal nomination in January last, I  have visited many parts of the riding  and made myself thoroughly acquainted with its requirements. This work  will be continued until election day  but owing to the large extent of territory to be covered it is a physical impossibility to visit all sections or personally interview all the electors. I  therefore avail myself of this oppor-  tuni ty to a*k for your suffrage.  Permit me to direct your attention to  some matters of local importance.  Yale-Cariboo fully Warrants the expen  diture of public money in its^develop-  ment* ^^h^govewtnenJ.JhW.-^ite^y^  done much in' this direction;. It has  granted aid to several lines of railway;  government owned telegraph'and telephone lines have been constructed; the  necessary moiiev has been voted to  secure telephonic communication  through the rich Nicola and Similkameen districts, and telegraphic communication between Vernon and Kel-  pwna. In order .that the practically  inexhaustible mineral, timber and  agricultural resources of the district  may be fully developed, this policy of  governmental aid must be continued.  It is important that* Yale-Cariboo shall  return   as  its   member one   who   can  direct the attention of the goventnent  to matters of vital importance to the  district and who will support the government in its aggressive policy of development. It is particularly important that the electors of this riding  should show their appreciation of the  government's broad, statesmanlike  plan of constructing another transcontinental railway which will be the  chief factor in opening up the northern  portion of .the riding. Branch lines to  connect/with the southern transcontinental lines will surely follow and the  whole interior of the province will be  opened up.  Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-  Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.  With a leader whose record fills with  pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations; supporting  a government whose eight years_of'  wise, progressive administration has  placed Canada in a proud position  among the nations of the world, and  at the same time has more closely connected the ties which bind us to the  mother country, and fully endorsing a  policy which means so much to the  western portion of the Dominion, and  more particularly to the District pf  Yale-Cariboo, I await with confidence,  your verdict.

The Conservatives are opening local  campaign headquarters in-the room on  Copper street, next south of White  Bros', drug store. The"headquarters  of * the three parties are-somewhat  suggestive. The Liberals are in the  building so long occupied by the solid,  substantial, reliable institution the  Bank of British North American; the  Socialists have their ' home in the old  JSscalet restaurant room; where every  'man* got what he could pay for, no  more and no less; while the Conservatives are housed in the room where  King sold cigars, that ended only in  smoke.

The features of this report are very creditable to the management  that property and very encouraging for the district,    In anything, results are what are demanded, and in mining affairs no  results   appear quite so satisfactory as  [���ofits and dividends.   The report of the Company's second year ends with Sept, 30th last, since which date another dividend of 10 cents a share has been paid the'stock/*  >lders.    One particularly pleasinf, feature of the report is the small amount charged  up to office salaries a total for the year of only $740.55.      At present the company  |iips the ore without sorting, the output of 944 tons for the year averaging in value $72.48 per ton after freight and treatment had been deducted.    The  net profit on this  was $27.61 per ton after deducting all costs and charges of every nature,  The net profits for the year were $26,066,15 being over 16 percent net profit on the entire issued capital of the company. As much of this stcck ccst a very small  ft of its par value it is evident that the stockholders have a property of which they may justly feel proud. The property never looked any better than at present and its  >spects for frequent and increasing dividends are excellent, The acquisition of the neighboring property, the Dimond, would appear to have been very wise on the part  the Directors and we only wonder that they have not embraced other claims in their ownership. It is desirable that mining companies should fortify themselves well  th adjacent ground before the effect of their work has resulted in enhancing neighboring ground too much, ?

G-ENTIvEJMEJN : I beg to report having completed my audit of your books, vouchers, etc. for the  year ending Sept. 30th, 1904, and now hand you herewith certified balance sheet and Profit and Loss  account. ;������"'.'  I have pleasure in reporting-having-found your-books in excellent order, all statutory requirements  have been complied with. Your Directors have supplied me with all the necessary information'. I consider they have made ample-provision for depreciation. They have also written off a fictitious asset  represen+ed in your ledger under the title of "Discount on shares" amounting to $16,437.50. The Balance  sheet as now presented to you is, I consider an exceedingly conservative one, and you nre to be congratulated on having Directors who take so conservative a view of your affairs. The only omission I have to  report is with reference to the dividend paid in October, 1903, there being nothing in the Minute book to  show that this dividend was authorized by your Directors.    Evidently a mere oversight.- \  By refering to the Profit and loss statement you will notice the total net returns for ore shipped amount  to $68,424.84. The entire direct and indirect charges including depreciation amount to $42,358.70 leaving a  net pr-ofit.on the years operations of $26,066.14. Of this amount you have already been paid $14,801.00 in  dividends and the $16,437.50 above referred to over absorbs the balance.  Respectfully, submitted,  .15.

E.  C. McDERMID,  GENTLEMEN :  During the year just ended we have shipped 944 tons of ore at a net value, after deducting freight and treatment, of $68,424.84. ���'The average value per ton, after the same  deduction, is $72.48. Last year the values were $100.00 net, showing a difference of ��27.52,  per ton. This loss has been principally in gold, if not entirely, the silver values being  about the same as last year.  -���The total cost of-miniugrafter both direct-and-indirect-chargesriiiGluding-deprcGiation-'  written off machinery, taxes, liability insurance etc. was S44.S7 per ton. Or a net profit on  944 tons at $27.61 per ton, amounting to S26,06d.l4. Of which $14,SOO.OO has been distributed amongst the various stock holders iu dividends. After charging off, as you' will  see by the balance sheet, depreciation on surface improvements, mining machinery, mine  equipment and mine development. The amount of work d.-ne during the year was. as follows: 650 feet drifting, 91 feet sinking, and 119 feet of raising. There was much more  work done, in what should properly be called cross-cutting through faults, and rising  through faults, which I have not entered up in this, but have charged direct to stoping.  The faults are still here, we have not yet got through ''hem. nor from general appearances  will we do so for some time to come. They come in from the south, striking to.tbe north,  and dipping to the west, throwing the ore shoot in a northerly direction at each fault. The  north end of the mine still continues to be the profitable end, the best ore being there and  less disturbances. The faults seem to become smaller as they work northerly, or at least as  far as present experiences shows.  We have an ore shoot ou the number four level, or the lowest level in the mine, 343  feet long. It cannot be called an entire shoot, as there are spots in it which become barren,  and other spots where it pinches down to an inch or so, but at no point does it entirely pinch  out, therefore I call it a continuous ore shoot, and still the ore continues in the North end.  In the south it is cut by a dark grey rock dike, which I would call gabbro. We have not  penetrated this dike to any extent, merely gone far enough to determine its character, strike  and dip. From indications on the surface, 1 should judge that the dike is of considerable  extent. Still I believe in drifting through it ore can Ik* found on the south end. The dike  is very hard, and it would be very expensive to cut through it by hand work, therefore for  the present we have left it alone.  , Ore in Sight. It is very hard under present conditions ;i t the mine, to estimate the  ore in sight. In the first place the size of the lead varies very much. Varying all the way  from a foot to one and a half inches, with an average not exceeding six inches. This to  gether with the hard rock, is one of the great reasons the cost of mining is so high. There  is a fault of about 14 feet running the entire length of the stope. We have cut through  this fault in two places and found the ore. In two other pi ices instead of finding the ore.  we found what I believe is a spur of the dike of porphory. which lies between the number  three and number four levels, which cuts the vein, faulting the vein for SO feet. The  amount of ore that would be in sight depends entirely on the extent of the spurs through  this dike. If the dike were regular, it would be possible, to estimate the ore both above and  below the dike, between the two levels. But being what we found it. not regular, it would  be merely a matter of guess for me to state the ore in siirht. as there is but one openin-*-*- on  the ore between the number three aud the number four levels. Still there should be several  hundred tons of ore between the two levels, of :i grade similar to that which we have  shipped during the year.  Greenwood, B. C, October 10. 1904.

Patrick Welch, the railway contractor, spent sevcra* days in town this  week.  G. Arthur Rendell is enjoying a  well-earned holiday in the Okanogan  country.  We are glad to see Mr. Docksteader  again on the street after a short sojourn in the Sister's hospital.  Mr. Desbrisay, right-of-way man for  the Great Northern, came in on  Wednesday evening's stage.  Philip Wells has retired from his  position with P. Burns & Co., and has  joined the staff of Rendell & Co.  David Bannerman has succeeded to  the Uvery business of Bannerman &  Lewis, having bought out his partner,  Frank Lewis.  Harry, Coutts, for a long time cook  at the Gem, has opened up the Windsor Cafe on Copper Street and solicits  public patronage.  George Findlay is at present at work  on a road into Skylark camp, a road  intended to serve several high grade  claims on Twin creek.  Herbert Bunting has bought out the  building supply stock of Hunter-  Kendrick Co., and intends to make a  specialty of that line.  Smith Curtis, "Esq., is becoming a  frequent visitor to Greenwood. He is  identifying himself with the mining  interests of the camp.  The Ladies Association of the  Presbyterian church will give one of  their delightful socials al the manse  on Friday, October 28th.  Albert Pipef who constructed the  government bridges across the West  Fork this autumn, has finished his job,  and travellers speak highly of the work  done.  ��� W. A. Feith of Beaverdell. is in  town this week. He reports business  at his general store in Beaverdell as  very good,-the past summer having  been the best yet.  An alarm of fire from a shack on  Mineral street, near Government,about  half past five Sunday evening- last  brought the fire department out in  great haste. Its services, however,were  not needed.;  The town is filled with notables this  week. The list embraces Chief Justice  Hunter, attorneys J. A. Macdonald,  W. A. McDonald, C. D. McNeill,  Ernest Miller, W. H. P. Clement and  H. J. Hannington.  Rev.' E. Manuel, of the Methodist  church in Grand Forks, will preach in  the Methodist church here next Sunday  morning and evening. Mr. Knox goes  to Grand Forks to preach the church  anniversary "sermon��"thef e^  Rev. W. O. Robin was subjected to a  surgical operation the first of the  present week. He sought relief in  surgery for an old injury to the wrist.  He is getting on nicely, nursing the  injured part.  The Grand Jury was comprised of  the following: C. D. Hunter, Thos.  Hardy, Donald MsCallum, H. E. Woodland, Leonard Vaughan, John Leamy,  E. T. Wickwire, G. O. Gordon, C. J.  McArthur, T. H. Patterson, John  Donaldson, L. S. M. Parrett, John A.  Motrin.  Berry, son of Zac Watson, was  buried on Tuesday afternoon. The  lad had beeu a most patient sufferer  for many months, but he was unable  to throw off the strong hand of disease  laid upon him. His father gave the  little fellow the most devoted attention,  in which he was assisted by kind  neighbors.  Arnold Hallett returned on Monday  after a visit to the old home in Sussex,  New Brunswick, whither he went several weeks ago to visit his father who  was ill. Mis father still continues in  delicate health. Mr. Hallett says general improvement is noticeable everywhere in the east but the west looks  good to him.  The Epworth League of the Methodist, church will meet as usual at 8  p. m. onMonday, when they will give  an evening with Longfellow.

Their devotion to duty is sublime and  if ever I am again unfortunate enough  to need such ministrations I trust I  may be fortunate enough to recive  the care of the Sisters of St. Joseph  of Peace."  MR. FISHER PROMOTED.  Mr. H. G. Fisher, for several years  teller in the local branch of the Bank  of Montreal, has been promoted to the  management of the branch to be opened at Kelowna on November 1st.

Mr. Stevenson will succeed Mr.  Fishei in the Greenwood branch.  McRAE VS. C. P- R.  The case of McRae vs Canadian  Pacific Railway has been engaging the  attention of court today, and is not  finished as we go to press. This is a  case under the Employer's Liability  Act. Mr. W. H. P. Clement of Grand  Forks represents the plaintiff and Mr.  C. D. McNeill of Vancouver for defendants.  TAX SALE OF MINERAL CLAIMS.  If vou want any crown granted mineral claims on which the taxes are unpaid, don't overlook the fact that all  such are advertised for sale at Rossland on November 7th next. The sale  is not advertised in the Times, but we  insert the above that claim owners  may learn of it.  LATEST WAR HEWS.  The latest news from the seat of war  in the east indicates some slight Russian gains followed by a general lull.  The Russians are reported to be entrenching themselves north of the  Hun river, and both armies, are being  disposed for another great struggle.  Heavy rains are proving a great hindrance to military operations. An  Associated.dispatch from Mukden yesterday says: The cessation of hostilities, enforced by the bad weather, even  it the Japanese offensiveness has not  really been, exhausted, gives both  armies a chance to breathe and to pull  themselves together and would seem to  insure as much benefit to one side as  to the other. When, operations commence they will assume an entirely  new phase with new dispositions and  new objectives. Practically last week's  battle has ended and it goes into history as a Russian defeat. When the  operations are resumed a new battle  will begin.  The re-appearance of viceroy Alexieff  at Mukden today for a conference is  not particularly reassuring, as such  conferences in the past have not been  fruitful of success.  GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT.  The Grand Jury in its presentament  to His Lordship Chief Justice Hunter  on Monday last, called attention to  several matters of a public nature.  They took occasion to express the  hope that a former recommendation in  regard to the improvements of the  courthouse grounds could be carried  out.  The Jury spoke in very favorable  terms of the condition of the Greenwood public school and of its effective  management by Mr. Sears and Miss  Martin.  In regard to the hospital of the  Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace the Jury  referred to the great improvements  made there during the present year  and to the efficient service it was rendering the public. The Sisters' Hospital is an institution of which all may  be proud. To him unfortunate enough  from._sickiiess���.or^accident,to1need1.the.  very best of ministration the Sisters'  Hospital offers a veritable heaven. Intelligent care, conscientious devotion  to duties that must be most exacting  and incessant kindness to all, regardless of class, creed or color, are characteristics of this institution at once a  home and a hospital. The Rev. J. P-  Knox, pastor of the Greenwood Methodist church, in a recent interview  spoke in highest terms of the management of the hospital. He had just returned from a sojourn there where he  had been lying ill with typhoid fever.
