The outrage, however, has served  to start a crusade against the continued us-jj of tilie ccll-lil:e compartment cars of the British railroads,  uiul at least one road is said to  have countermanded alan.e older  for old  type cars in  cause-.-, ent-c   of  (he  crusade.  S:r Conan Doyle was asked, in his  capacity of Sherlock Holmes, to give  his opinion of the tunnel tragedy.  He declined, but warmly denounced  the present slyhj of cars and lack of  .protection for women travelling  alone. lie said:  '���������  1  thjn'v    it perfectly scandalous  that     such a state of affairs  should  l:e  allowed     io exist.

Some of them wore very  seriously hurt, necessitating their te-  niovai lothe hospital at Fernie.  while others received wounds more or  less severe and the balance wcre badly shaken up. This is the second  time that, such an accident has happened. The first one, two months  ago.   was caused  by an  open  switch.  BRAWLS AT THE  ROYAL   C-ITY.  WILL  REAlAlN  TO  WELCOME  ROYALTY.

It is fully expected many favorable replies win be received  by the  doctor.   Already   many  letters    have  arrived  from those interested  in Polar    research     on   the outside,   who  have heard  of the proposed t-ip and  desire to  join the Yukoners.  Actual work has been  t-egun . in the  way of gathering models of the best  styles  of Yukon   sleighs   for  carrying  big loads   on the   trip   to  the North  Pole,   and  as an  incentive  to others  to   help  in  this work  Governor  Mc-  Inncs  will  give.three handsome prizes.

New Westminster, Sept. 2f>.���������The  police have as yet been'unable lo"  identify the body of thc well dressed  man which was found floating in the  river yesterday, hut. from papers  found m his pocket he is supposed to  have heen a well-to-do farmor from  the Northwest. The sum of $83 in  cash was also found in his pockets.  From the number of maps and notes  of descriptions of farms found n his  pockets, H is supposed that the man  had gone up country .to look, over the  land with a view to purchase. The  papers were from Vancouver  firms.  ARRANGEMENTS  ARE KOI  SATISFACTORY  An      error      appeared jra  our last  night's   edition  in  giving   the  rates  per S.S. Joan to Vancouver and return.    It  is   $3.75,  and not  $3.00.  Every     time one wishes to go to  Vancouver  they must first pay  fare  to, "and   journey   through,   Nanaimo.  This is  not what the people of La-  nysmith  expected,  and  is   not      "a  steamer     to      Vancouver.      As the  schedule now is, it     win not accommodate  those who  wish to  go     to  Vancouver,     'have a few  hours       in  which    to 'transact  business,   aud re-  Uiru  the same day,  for Saturday is  not. a good  day for transacting business,      as all wholesale houses close  at noon, and   the fact that  the stay  ���������in  that city   on  Saturdays   will    Ijc  only alxiut      two ,hours, gives little  time.    The following day  being Sunday,  there  is no return boat  to Nanaimo.     s :t is, the people win continue  to  travel  much  as heforc,   by  the Transfer,  or go to Nanaimo and  take   two  nights and  a part  of  the  third   day  in  which  lo spend three  hours 36 miles awav from home.

Australia they have tried to  b.uiid. a tower high enough to reach  some ������ort of promised land where the  hard work and hunger are not to he  found. The result suggests' the Tower of. Babel, for though the failure is  not so marked the measure of confusion foil- lhe-attoui.pt is not small.  IMr. C. S. Larkc in discussing Australia recently, was unable to say much  that is encouraging of the old age  pension aiid the arbitration piajis as  wor..ed out . in the Common wealth.  The schemes are good enough, pcr-  ha| s, but the Australians have not  yet reached that perfection of character which will some day enable  them to steer between paternalism  and cumbersome state machinery on  the one hand, and the horrors of wholly selfish competition on the other,  Thc leading impression Mr. Larke  seems to have of Australia, as a Canadian representative, is that it is a  good place for Canadians to steer  clear of. When thc-.people pf the Com  lnonwcaith have secured sonic of the  desirable things at which they have  been somewhat; wildly aiming, there  win be another story to tell. They  are a fearless folk and have no distrust of the untried and the novel;  which iu itself is admirable enough  and indicates that sometime in the  future their experiments will be successful. The \vorld may then profit  ���������by the result.  Meanwhile, Australia, although a  vast and undeveloped land, has a problem of the unemployed, a problem of  -tilie pensioned, and those who want  pensions but cannot get them, and o'  those who object to paying pensions  of others. And there are other problems, numerous enough- Compared t  our Australian friends the Canadians  'eeem to be leading the simple life.

The barometer ."tonight.';  registers the same  as it  did   in  1894,  when   20,000   people  were  killed  and  their   bod.'ies  were found  -'n  the  tcPs  of trees along the coast.  ���������_Telephone   messages received here  today   indicate that   for   the   iast, 21.  hours a terrible   storm has been aging along     the entire gulf Coast and  ; that  a numher of vessels     //e   heen  swept     ashore.   So     far,   no bodies  have been washed ashore.  At  nine  o'clock   tonight  the barometer   registered . just as  it  did    in  189-1-,-'when  the fishing camps        all  along  the Cammandierer islands  suffered and  hundreds /were killed.    Reports     received    tonight show that  bath houses and other buildings haae  been    swept  away  along ^Ihe coast,  and  that 'the-.storm is constantly increasing, in  violence.    At Gulf Port  the water  is  already over the railroad   wharf  and  the same is true at  Milnob-urg  and other  boats.  WELLINGTON COAL  II is reported that, a huge gang of  Chinamen are engaged for railway  grading'on tbe Island. No particulars are given out but the repoit, if  true, would indicate that there will  be an extension of the E. & N.  railway next summer. It is, however, most likely that legislation ���������"Will  be asked for of the Provincial Government at its next session before  such   work   is  undertaken.  EVERYBODY MUST VOTE.  Thursday night. there was an informal meeting of soverai of the aldermen to t-Kik over the hours that  the polls will-lie open on the (ilh. It  was found by thein to be practically  impossible to change the hours that  the poll can remain open, the statute  being mandatory and saying "shall  open at 9 a. nv. and close at '1 p.  in." If any other hours wcre set it  might invalidate the election and  bends* voted at such an election be  void. However, it is still being looked into by thc aidernian. and if any  way can bc devised it will lie done.  As there is no member of t-hc board  who wishes to see ..any man deprived  of a chance to record his views for or  against the measure. If there is no  other way found it may be possible  to arrange for the miners train to  conic down a .utile earlier on voting  day. by having everything in order:  easi.y vote before four o'clock if tho  train came, in at 3.30. The matter  will bc brought, up and discussed' on  Monday night at the Council  meeting.  SIX MEN   ARRESTED  ON CHARGE OF MURDER  Iagcrsoll,   Sept.   29.���������Geo...

IS IN DEMAND  CURIOUS MISHAP  TO     THE      ALKL  The Alaskan Steamship Comyanys  sk-anier, Jefferson, which reached Seattle at noon yesterday from the  north, brought word to the effect  that a bolt of lightning struck the  .steamer Ai-Ki while the vessel was  crossing Milibank Sound, bound for  Skagway. It split in twain the fore-  lop-mast, magnetised the compass  and killed a cat, the mascot of thc  crew.  Caplain Nord, of the steamer Jefferson says Captain Thompson of the  Ai-ki- informed him that he was  forced to tie up at night because it  was dangerous to proceed without a  compass- When the Jefferson reached Ketchikan, September 25th.. bound  south,   the  Ai-ki   was  in  port.  There .was a severe, storm on Mii-  bank Sound when the Ai-ki was cros  sing that body of water. It is- believed tliat-a dcckioad of iron attracted the lightening, affected thc  compass. Capt. Thompson said that  as soon* as he got rid of the iron  cargo he would probably bc able to  adjust the compass so that it could  be used. Tt is lil-'ciy that llio Ai-ki  will be compelled to proceed slowly  from   Ketchikan to  Skagwav.  M.   Seie,  who left Ladysmith      a  few   weeks since for a trip along the  coast  and to California,  is. back in  Ladysmith    and      will  soon resume  work  in     the   .mines.'   Mr.  Seie says  that  work is  readily   to  be  found at  any      point   he   visited,   $75,00   per*  month being '.'offered at  Los Angeles  for  bridge v.;o*rlc He visjted the West  minster  fair  on   his  way  back,   but  found   things not yet ready for   :   a  good   display   and   the   weather    not  pleasant.      In  San .Francisco', ��������� Mr.  Gelp     says tli-cre is a great demand  for   Wellington coal.    Teams,   on the  arrival   of   the   last   collier      .from.  Ladysmilih,   were  on  the  bunkers   at  four  o'clock in, the morning so as to  get two loads.   More than 250 learns  were    lined   up waiting a chance  to  load.      There is  very  little coal' in  i San Francisco and  what  there is  is  of poor quality."  ���������    As  the Cumberland  mines  are now  j shipping    0,500  tens  per  day.  their  j largest output, and  a good output is  j made in Ladysmith,  it will be readily  seen  that  the  winter's   demand.  'for fuel coal  will be gpod, and   -the  reopening of the Nanaimo  mines will  in no  way cause over-production for  at least months to come,  if at. all.  Meantime,   the  opening of   smelters  J and building up the coast  will cause  ! a constantly     increasing market for  ' thc--Island  collieries.  STRIKE   IS   LIKELY .'.:'  TO   BE SETTLED.  From reports received  from  Nanaimo    today,   it     looks very much as  though   a settlement  of  the* difficulties has been reached and that   Uie  miners.' meeting called for this evening would endorse the actions of the  committee,  and call off  the strike.

Skagway, Sept. .28-���������The bulk of the  freight for interior points has now  nearly all passed White Hcrse. and  if there was any danger of this year's  shipments not reaching their destination it should an be over by"i.he present time. Thc manner in which the  wa'er has kept up in the river has  helped the White Pass people out to  a great extent. An that now remains to come in are lhe perishables,  and these. . arc being rushed into At-  lin and down into Dawson and other  liver points. The passenger trallic  coming out is increasing. Large  crowds are now coming up on every  boat.   Manv  are  from   Eairbanl.ns.  The grain crop of tho west is turning out a much heavier yield from the  spouts of the threshing machines than  was expected when the crop was growing in the fields. The latest report issued by the Canadian Pacific Railway  shows that the average yield of  ' "wheat is close on twenty-live bushels  lo the acre, while the majority of  lhe estimates so far have placed it at  about twenty.  The oat crop     is a marvellous one,  in nearly an districts it reaches sixty bushels     lo the acre.   The general  | grade of the     wheat is one-nortti-ern,  though there is considerable one-hard  in the country..   W7et weather has in-  : terfered ���������  with     threshing  operations  ���������but during   the past week there have  been   favorable conditions   throughout  j thc west, and the marketing    of the  ; wheat has     reached a figure of more  .' than half a million bushels a day. It  is reaching the terminal elevators  at  Fort WiHiam and Port Arthur at the  rate of Jive hundred cars a day.  AireadyS'l.OOO.OOO has been distributed among the farmers of the west  by elevator companies. Business activity has been greatly stimulated.  PRICE FOR E & N. R AIL=  L WAY AND LAND GRANT  Bulglar���������All   I want  is   your   money,   lady!  Old    Maid���������Go   away,   wretch���������you  are  just like all   the   oilier men     I  know,  Thc 'price paid by the C.P.R. forth v K. & N.. Railway and lan-1  grant has not been made, public, and  reports have never as to thc price  the present owners paid. The Canadian Pacific report, has just been issued and refers to this transaction  as follows:  M-'oi-   the  purpose   of  reaching-       the  trade  and  participating  in  the development  of   Vancouver   Island,        the  directors secured   the necessary legislation  and  made  t-hc requisite agreements   to enable the  Company   lo acquire  control  of  the  Esquimau  and  Nanaimo  Railway  extending;,     from  Victoria to Wellington, a distance of  78   miles.      The.   Esquimau   and   Nanaimo Railway Company owns a* land-  grant   on   Vancouver  Island   of    ap-  |ir.-ixinia(ie.iy    IAiOO.000   acres.    Shareholders  will  be asked  to  authorize a  lease     of thc    railway  of  the  Esquimau   Company  to  this  Company  for  a term of years, at a rental equal to  the     interest at Hie rate of 4 per  cent,   per  annum,  payable  on bonds  , from     time   to time issued  by  that  ..Company,  to an amount not exceeding $30,000  per mile of the railway,  upon   the.condition   that  the  Esq-ui-  nialt   Company shall  apply  the proceeds      of all  sales of land  towards  j the redemption of  said bonds at par  until such time as thc total amount  ( of said  bonds  outstanding shall have  ! been  reduced     from  $30,000 per mile  to .U-IJO.) per mile of the railway."  This  is  all   the  report, says  about  the matter,   but the .inference would  he that at the end  of the time when  the bonds have been reduced by tho  sale      of   lands   to ?14,000   per   mile  that   the    debt  would bc  cancelled.  This  would indicate a bonded indebtedness of $14.0-00 per mile,  which the  C.P.R.   takes  over  and pays apparently  $10,000 per mile, or $.1,248,000  So if this explanation is correct, tho  last figure is the price paidj _( ���������nda***-*  DAILY LEDGER  THE DAILY LEDGER  Published   every day except Sunday.  .BY        THE       DAILY        LEDGER  COMPANY.

Walter    Jones,     and Tom Strange  have returned  to   town after  spending three months  in the copper sec-  t'.on hack  of Ladysmath some  18 or  20  miles.    'U-cy have made some locations     which  Ihey  consider  good,  and,     judging    from   , thc     sami'1-.s-  brought     in, they are right, in their  judgment.    On one  group,  near Co'wi  eh an  Lake,  they have done considerable  development   work,   resulting  iu  showing up a body of  low grade ore  40  feet or  more   thick.  Very few prospectors have been  in  that section; .that  is, any  more than  lo  stake  oil claims and perhaps  revisit     and rest-ike the ,next  season-.  That there are large ore  bodies     in  this  pari  of  the   Island   awaiting development  seems   very   certain.     So  far  as shown by   the small  a-mqunt  "of  work  done the   ore  bodies  in  the  section  back  of   Ladysmith arc  low  in  grade,   although not enough  work  has  as yet been  done to prove this,  but  even   if this   is   the case,      with  transportation at.  reasonable rales-it  that there arc mines that'1  ON   SATURDAY, SEPT. 30TH.

It, is often said   "a mine  that  paid  from   thc grass-roots."  There  are  such   .properties,       but  they  are     not   found  too frequently.  As  an example of ijic  cost of developing  a. property,   the Nickel   Plate,  Similkaineen,  is  now  producing-frcmi  owned by  lhc Marcus Estate in   the  $1,000  to $2,nnn  a day,  but it  cost,  says Mr. Rogers, tho. manager,  SSOO-  000.to ii-et   it, on  a paying basis. Tho  Britannia,   al though  so   favorably situated  for development, and   Uans-por-  l.at'ion,   has.cost   nearly   the     same-  amount of money  as has -.the Nick j  Plate, and has not as   yet produced  a dollar.  These examples  go to shmv that it  will  require money and lots of it to  make'producing mines   of  our  Island  ore  bodies,  but, if  prospectors  would  all  show  the same  amount of energy that  Mcssis.   .Jones   and   Strange  are   showing  hy   doing   development  work ������o  Tar  as possible   through  thc  season,   it  would  not be  long  until  strong  companies  Avould   become  interested      in forwarding such..work,  and if, as-now seems assurrcd,  large  bodies     of pay' ore in the neighborhood   of <:Ladysmith' are   found,   good  will result to the entire community.
