Two of Pat Gorman's Children Were Badly Injured.
About 9 o'clock yesterday morning Pat Gorman, who resides on
Church street, West ward, drove up
to thc C. P. R. station in a light
rig, containing, besides himself,
three of his own children—Johnny
and Marie, twins, aged about 5
years, and Dan, aged about 7 years
—and a five-year-old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Fritz. He left
the team unhitched, and started for
the station to transact some business. He bad only taken a few
steps, however, when he. heard the
children scream, and, turning sharply, was horrified to see the team running at break-neck speed over the
prairie. One or two men, who had
been near, started in pursuit, but
the screams of the children Only
increased thc speed of the frightened
animals, and they were soon forced
to abandon the chase. After making a wide detour around the prairie
the horses started back towards the
railway track. Wben within a
couple of hundred feet from the station they divided on either side of a
large pine, thc wagon tongue striking the tree with such force as to
penetrate it for four or five inches.
The sudden stop of the vehicle threw
the little children against the dashboard with terrific force, and it is a
miracle that the were not all killed
outright.
Wben assistance arrived, two of
them, the Gorman twins, Marie and
Johnny, were unconscious and covered with blood. Tbey were removed
to thc Pacific hotel, and Dr. Kingston was summoned, who arrived
promptly and dressed the wounds.
Marie Gorman was badly injured
about the head, the skull being
slightly fractured,and it was thought
at first that trepanning would have
to be resorted, but this has since been
found to be unnecessary. Johnny
Gorman received a deep scalp wound
about three inches long. One of
the arms of the Fritz girl was
slightly bruised. Dan Gorman miraculously escaped without a scratch.
Today the injured children were
reported as doing nicely, with en-
conraging prospects of complete recovery.
Aid. Morrison, of Phoenix, was in
the city today.

Presbytery of Kootenay
The Presbytery of Kootenay convened in Knox church, Grand Forks,
for special business last Tuesday
evening. Rev. Dr. Wright was
elected moderator pro tern. There
were present Rev. Drs. Wright and
Herdman, J. Hastie, V. M. Purdy,
E. C. W. McColl, J. R. ^Robertson,
J. Ball and Mr. C. M. Turner. Thc
resignation of Rev. J. R. Robertson,
B. B., of tbe pastoral charge of
Grand Forks was the first business
taken up. After the formal resignation had been read by the clerk, Mr.
Robertson was requested to state his
reasons for resigning bis charge. He
did bo in an impressive; address, the
trend of which was disappointment
over certain adverse conditions in
the community, a lack of hearty response to appeals for greater activity
in some departments of the church,
and certain difficulties in the inner
workings of tbe congregation, Members of the congregation were then
invited to express themselves, and
several did so.    The   concensus   of
| opinion was strongly in favor of Mr.
Robertson withdrawing bis  resigna-
i tion. Thc Presbytery then withdrew to thc manse, and tbe congregation discussed the matter among
themselves, and finally adopted tbe
following resolution:
"That the Presbytery be asked to
defer consideration of tbe pastor's
resignation until such time as the
congregation can hold a congregational meeting to discuss the matter."
The Presbytery met again   Wed
nesday morning, and after long and
careful deliberation resolved to defer final action until the fall meeting
of the Presbytery, to be held in
Rossland August 25th. In the mean
time the congregation are to hold
a regular meeting to discuss tbe
matter fully and make their views
known to thc Presbytery.
Dr. MacRae's resignation of his
charge at Greenwood was read and
accepted, and Rev. V. M. Purdy, of
Phoenix, was appointed tnterim
moderator, and requested to preach
at Greenwood next Sunday, declaring the pulpit vacant.
A call to Rev. A. L. Burch, from
Rossland congregation, was presented aud sustained.

AN OFFICIAL REPORT
Phoenix, B.C., July 5, 1903.
Editor Evening Sun.
As the report of the daily papers
of the 4th inst. was not entirely correct as to the proceedings of the labor convention in your city on the
3d, I beg to submit an official account of the same.
The other accounts state that this
was a socialist convention. This
might be true in one sense, as the
great majority of the delegates were
either socialists or that way inclined.
As a matter of fact, the convention in question was a convention of
organized labor, in which all bodies
of that ilk in the riding were represented, and it was called for the purpose of considering the question of
nominating a union man to represent the producing class in the coming provincial election.
It was, therefore, a labor convention, and it co uld not properly be
described as a socialist convention.
This matter being settled, I will
proceed. First of all, it was a condition tbat no man was entitled to sit
ns a delegate unless he was a British
subject and a qualified voter in the
constituency: and it is a fact that by
fa,'the most of us first saw thc light
under "the flag that's braved a
thousand years," etc., and, speaking for myself, I have to confess that
I have been so ultra English as
never to have been able to sleep
easy on American soil, upon such
occasion when business called me
over there, and I always was able to
breathe more freely when I got back
to "Hunt Peggy's" country. But I
will not digress further.
Tbe Phoenix delegates arrived at
9:30a. tn. and the roll was called at
10 o'clock, the chair being taken by
Jas. A. Harris, of Grand Forks.
The meeting was characterized by
thc utmost enthusiasm throughout,
ami culminated in the decision that
John Riordan, secretary of Miners'
Union No. 8, was the "Man for Gal-
way." This point was insisted on
by most of the Grand Forks delegates with even more conviction than
by us Phoenix folks, as we had set
tled before we came down thc hill
that in order to satisfy local feeling
in your section we would nominate
and elect a man from your city.
However, the towering strength and
sterling qualities of thc man in question had impressed themselves so
much on all present, tbat although
We nominated Brother W. H. Cli t',
of Grand Forks, he immediately
countered by nominating Riordan,
notwithstanding that the latter's opposition to the honor was earnest,
stubborn and protracted, he himselt
alleging that he would never accept,
for the reason that he would not
have it thrown in his face that he
had been angling for the position for
the last four years. There is not the
least doubt that he would have remained firm up to the last in declining, but, a recess having been declared, the argument was finally put
to him from all sides that he would
be throwing down the people he had
worked and suffered for for so long
if he persisted in his  attitude.    No

AN OFFICIAL REPORT
Concluded from Second Page.
tlesb and blood could withstand
such an argument as that, so he
finally gave in with good grnce,amid
thc enthusiastic, applause of the delegates.
Brother Riordan is the strongest
possible candidate that we could
have put up, without ono exception;
and I have since It ained that both
tbe old parties fully recognize tbis,
as thev have grave fears as to tbe
result. .
Tbe principal feature of the proceedings was the almost unanimous
adoption of the following resolution:
Whereas. The (Irand Forks labor
convention, representing the entire
combined unions of organized labor
in Grand Forks and Phoenix, recognizes that both the old parties, Liberal and Conservative, to be clearly
hostile to the interests and welfare
of the working class, as is abundantly shown by the actions of past and
present governments at Ottawa and
elsewhere, and plainly perceives that
the socialist party of British Columbia is the only political party in the
province founded at once upon
science, and justice for all, and to be
the last bulward and only hope of
trie wage-workers against' final enslavement.
Re it resolved, That tbe above-
named convention recommends the
local socialist* leagues of Grand
Forks and Phoenix to, nominate
Brother John Riordan, of Phoenix
Miners' Union, as the political candidate of the working class, to contest tbe riding of Grand Forks in the
coming provincial election; and
further promises that all bodies of
organized labor in the said riding
will extend their heartiest financial
and political support to the aforesaid candidate if nominated.
A campaign committee was formed
consisting of thcfollowing members:
Honor, ry preside it, John Riordar,
of Phornix; chairman, Jas. A. Plar^
ris. of Grand Forks; vice-president.
I). T. Mclntominoy, Phoenix; first
recording and corresponding secretary, W. If. Bambnry, Phoenix;
second recording and corresponding
secretary, John T. Lawrence, Grand
Forks; treasurers, H, A. Munro,
Phoenix, W. H. Creit',, Grand
Forks.
Active steps are now being taken
to secure a triumph at the polls, and
few fears arc entertained as to the
result. One peculiarity of the situation is the number of Americans
of long residence, who are now, for
the first time, becoming naturalized,
and who could never before be induced to "take out their papers."
These people explain that never before could tbey see anything in Canadian politics worth voting for, as
they could see no difference between
Conservatives and Liberals.
Now, however, thai a party of
and for the people has appeared on
the scene, they are going to vote for
socialism.
