JuBt about train time a telephone  B message oamo *������������������* Bob Raid that there  was a iagge  elide on the  traok  near    "W-otiTidol  ���������ar * - 0 ���������������������������-���������  _f    He immediatelv notified the dispatoh-  HI' **  fer and called out the see tion gang and  assembling extra men they were sent  to the scene of the disaster.  Just at the foot of Mntton'3 ranch  the. slide occurred. It occupied perhaps fifty feet of the traok and extend-  d clear acrons it. The formation there  is a peculiar limestone outcrop thr  R strata extending at an angle of thirty-  Kfive degrees inclined upwards. The  ntieasc little fcrickliug of the water would  undermine the earth and oause it to  fall away thus exposing the rook. Then  ithe falling away of the smaller frag-  Ements would withdraw the support to   the larger blocks and the slide would  'easily-   occur  as a  consequence.   The  [formation was not regular at this spot  and it is easy to understand how the  pressure' from above forced the weakened supports from below and the slide  occurred.  A force of about sixteen men were on  ���������jIjo Djwne and bv dint of hard work and  ** 1  some half dozen blasts of powder had  the track clear for the passage of train*  by 8 o'clock.  Ic is a tribute to the watchfulness of  Br the O. P. R. that an accident was avert-  ������i-ed in this instance as the accident hap-  K'pened very shortly before the train was  Sdue to pass the spot, and it is to the  credit of the company that the traffic  was delayed only a very few minutes  by this slide. The dispatcher got Sirdar and had a train go to connect with  the westbound whioh went as far as the  S| elide when the transfer was easily made.  *  DUCK CREEK NEWS  PAOKING GLASSE  IKE GO-JO SHOWING  The two classes which have just concluded their work in this distriot under  the leadership of Mr. Welthers made a  very good showing as regards points.

They will make a demonstration in Nelson and march %q  Victoria?" - ]  The *;Queen of the KootenajMi" will be treated to a  panorama guaranteed to rival the yery latest in moving  picture shows.  The reason given for the demonstration is the new law  compelling the Doukbobors to register births, marriages and  deaths.

In the recent case of E.  Payette convicted of forgery,  His Honor told the prisoner  to return to Creston and work  to pay back the money. As an  evidence of just how much respect even the prisonei has  for such sentences, he has not  returned nor is it at all likelj>*  that he will.  On thc other hand is it not  an open and flagrant insult  to the people of this district,  when they through the proper legal mediums send a prisoner to Nelson for trial ! and  sentence, when that prisoner  is found to be guilty, is it not  on   i~int*n     nnA     f\ncrr<*\\t-    ititMil*-  +-m m*        ���������*���������*' mm'   mr- 0* m m-m mm mm -������!..������ ~���������   i   * w m, m   mm m m-i, r^>  *. m  m Ir  to the people of  this   district  to have the  judge fiend him  hcnoV    iiiiiviiin������bt*r1 ���������    m*   n������   in  the case of the cattle killer,  give him a ridiculous sentience.  If His Honor-thinVs the people of the Creston Valley are  ignorant or slow, or lacking  in influence, let him beware.  At the present stage the matter is in excellent shape for  presentation to the Minister  of Justice and we remind His  Honor of the tremendous significance of the "last straw"  Following is the clipping  from the Herald:  "Five Alberta men were  given severe sentence? by  Justice Harvey on Saturday,  the crime being horse stealing  The chief justice did well in  sentencing these prisoners to  draw attention to the meanness of their ��������� offence, and tb  show by the severity of the  sentences imposed in what regard it is held by the authorities. ,���������'   ��������� ' *  In all communities, old. or  newly settled, puhlic opinion  is invariably strongly against  the horse or cattle thief. ������������������������������������'.  Owners of horses  and   cattle  are forced' to)t;r.us^ largely  ty>  in a bunch on Saturday. There  has been so -auch cattle stealing in Alberta for sometime  .*>   -,  past, indicating the develop-  ment of an unprincipled gang  of rustlers who have been emboldened by past successes,  and were apparently prepared  to continue their disreputable  game in all parts of the province. This dose of stem justice  handed out to five of < their  number will, let us hope, give  a setback to rustlers' aspirations for a long time to come."  1 ������������������' ',.���������'.
