—***.—
Coroner Davis, of Nanaimo, held
an injqtiest at tire AbiiDtstord hotel
on Thursday morning to Inquiro Into the death of a Chinaman named
CMiu Young, who was struck by the
engine of tho south-bound passenger
train at Extension Junction on Wednesday morning and almost instantly killed.
During the course of the inquest
it was shown tliat the deceased had
deliberately walked in front of the
engine, which was running at the
speed ol twenty miles per hour, ami
had been struck Uy Hie fender and
thrown sonic thirty feet to one side.
Section foreman Thomas, who was
sworn, slated tliat he first saw thc
train when it was a^iout ojic 'hundred'
yards off, and lie warned his thvoj
men to get out of the way. They did
so; and witness turned to watch the
train approach. Just as the engine
was imsshig him, lie heard it givo 3
short whistles, indiicarliiiig danger,
and be looked around jusl in time
to see the deceased struck. The hitter had retired from the track, and
evidently hud absent-mindedly gom
back Wore the train passed.
Engineer T. Servini's evidence cor
rolnratcd that of the foreman, he
stating that the Chinaman began t
advance to the track when the or
ginc was Within n couple nf rnil-
Iriii'Jths away, and the man had brent
over the rnrils as if lie were alArut to
continue his work. He could see nn
wrench or anything which had been
left on the track, and could nol understand why tlur man bail returned
to the same. Deceased .liad not looked toward tbe train a' nil, Inn must
have heard it approach, ns the foreman'testified that his hearing was
perfectly  good.
The jury brought in tin- following
verdict:
"We, flic undersigned .fury- empan-
nelled to tlK||iirc into the cause     nf
the death     of one Chu Young,  find
that the deceased came lo his death
through his own negligence by being
struck by a locomotive. '.'..• aim finr!
that every precaution was taken by

The S.S. Crusader, which roadbed
port on Saturday lust for bunker
coal, furnished considerable work for
the local police force and Justices
of the Peace Matheson and Stewart
dining tlie forepart of tho week. On
the first day of arrival the captain
of the ship bad three men arrested,
charged with having refused duty
while ou tho high sons. They were
lound guilty and sentenced to thirty
days' imprisonment with hard labor.
This sentence evidently Inokisl good
to other members of the crew,as on
the following Monday five more sailors refused duty, and were duly arrested and brought up lor bearing.
They consisted of four negroes and a
white man, and werc employed as
firemen aboard the ship.
Upon the charge being read to them
which was one ol continued' discipdi-
once of orders received on hoard the
ship, the men nll pleaded guilty. The
captain was sworn and proceeded In
give evidence relating toj the ease,
liefore tire oath bad been administered, however, and while tlio captain
was" iu the act of kissing thc Ilible,
one of the sailors, by the name of
Frrber, Interrupted—the proceedings
in rr manner which was not Circulated to soothe tire feeling of trite
captain.
As the latter was in the act     of
kissing tlie 'hook,   Kaiier called
in an excited lone, "There that's no '

Ilible ni anything else, you couldn't

"All right, sir," replied Fafior,

Sonic nice little points ol sen law

While last Sunday's football match
between tbe Conlralia and the and
Bowery teams is a thing of the past,
still, the results stand just as tlioy
did just' alter the match, and Bowery,
and Centralias arc tied in their race
lor the Wassiiii Oliallongo Cup. During the first innl nf the game the
Ociilialias luul tilings pretty much
Uicir own way, rind Aihinis scored
their only goal before tbe close of
the first half, while tbe Bowery men
failed to register. After the first
half, however, thc Bow-cry men
checked up a great ileal closer, and
a special detachment looked alter
Mr. Adami pretty closely. In lact
they took better care of him than
they did of the ball, with the result
that be. liad no time to score, al-
thoi.gli upon one occasion he very
nearly accomplished the latter act.
On a whole, though, the Bowery ineiil
put up a stronger game during the
last half, and not only tied the score
but aildiil one to the good, A. Morrison being responsible in each case
Had the Ostrtifilfui nut luul n p0.¥
keeper, whose name is fi. Greaves,
jusl where be was wanted several
times, the score would have been a
groat de.il more favorable to file
Bowery, team. As it was, "Bolrliy"
saved time and a&iin when it looked
as if tbo sphere was bound to go
through. It will he another two
weeks yet liefore these two teams
meet again, but when they do, there
. j will surely be something doing, both
by the platers and the supporters
The latter have money to bet tbat
their team can win, and although
the Bowery men gol the money this
week, the Ceiitialia backers will lis'
there with the necessary when ncxl
the two twiJiis meet.
The sLimliiig of the ilu;
is as follows:

Cerilrulin.s I        3
Bowery I       3       1       ti

According lo llie above Ibcrc is

pid a iHither susiri'ch into their records for tin;
season l|ut confirms bills nniin-i. Luring the games played tlicy have each
scored eight a)oal8 und each bavojiiud

The match tomorrow will be lie-
twri'ii tbe Shamrocks and tbe Bowery tennis, and the former have added considerably to their strength,
with the ho|>cs of landing their Iirst
victory. They arc all game to the
Inst, and ii it is .it all possible v ill
send the Bowery bunch down defeat tomorrow.

rJBIG GAME PROVES RICH
ASSET IN    B.
C.
Seattle P.    I.—That tho his Riuuo
ln i"the province ol British Columbia
is an important asset is the opinion
ol Mr. A. B. Williams, game warden,
He slated that his experience of the
last few months had convinced    him
that,    witb a proper system o! pro-
tection and advertisement, the hunl-
Ing to be obtained in this porl Ion ol
Western   Canada    would attract so
many disciples   ot Nlmrod that their
expenditure in Obftalnlng licenses, in
outfitting nnd other heavy expenses.
would make     them one of thc country's   most    valuable   assets.    Thc
I state of Maine, Mr. Williams remnrk-
, practically existed upon the hiin-
| ters is attracted to it's    preserves.
And anyone, be added, knew that flu*
| state mentioned could be placed   on
Vancouver    Island and scarcely noticed.        This Ireing the case, and   it
I being   acknowledged    that   British
Columbia's    fastnesses    teem    with
game of all varieties, lie was of   tlic
belief   that ultimately the hi: game
would prove a source of revenue  equal almost to the timber anil mining
resources.
Referring to the results of the past
season, Mr. Williams said that there
had been a noticeable improvement
even In that short space of time.
Last year the revenue derived from
licenses Issued tn those non-residents
desiring to shoot hig game bad reach
ed the total of $2,S(10. This season
the figures were 3,500, an increase ol
i$700. Tills wns not a huge sum,
but lt showed that tire trend was in
the right direction.
Referring to tbe results of the summer's   shooting In the Casslar country, Mr. Williams reported that    at
tho beginning of the year all leaving
the   country    with lungs ot    game s
should be searched    nnd   a complete
record.kept of their achievements. He,
lias   received     a statement showing
that twenty-one people went into the
Casslar.     All were wealthy and en
1 thuslasttc nlmrods, and It Is estlmat
1 wl that they each expended In outfitting and travelling nn less than $1,-
I 400.   This    is n   conservative total,
and does not include the Innumerable
I small outlays which arc always necessary.     Some ol these     gentlemen
I never shot before,    while others, nr
1 course, were veterans in stalking and
"'Ming    the stalwart denizens of the

Neglected Catarrh Becomes
Chronic.
THERE are some th lugs whicli are as
sure as fale. aud can be relied ou to
occur to at leoBt one-half of the human
family unless means are taken to prevent.
First colds no. promptly cured aro
sure to cause catarrh.
Socond, catarrh improperly treated is
sure to make life short and miserable.
The Destructive Power of Catarrh.
Jatarrh spares no organ or function of
the body.
It is capable of destroying Bight, taste,
•moll, hearing, digestion, secretion, assimilation and exoretion.
It pervades ivory part of the human
body, head, throat, stomach, bowels,
bronchial tubes, lungs, llvor, kidneys.
bladder and other pelvic organs.
Thc Curative Power or Pe-ru-na.
There is no faet tn popular medical
science bettor established than tliat a
teaspoonful of Peruna before each meat
will surely lessen the danger of catching cold.
Now, since this is truj, and experjenco
bears It out mor t forcefully, thousands
of Uvea would bo saved, aud lens of
thousand of cases of chronic catarrh
prevented by tbie simple precaution
within reach of every one.
