Railway Laborer Has Narrow Escape From Instant Death
One Eye Destroyed and Face
and Body Badly Cut
and Lacerated ...
A railroad laborer na-ne'd-Flack
White, working with the iX P. R.
extra construction gang at Shields,
a few miles east of this city, met
with a serious accident at 10 o'clock
Wednesday morning by drilling into
a missed hole. The explosion was
terrific, and it is little short of a
miracle that the man was not killed
outright. He was immediately
brought to tbe hospital in this city,
where he is now under the care of
Drs. Kingston and Newcombe.
White's injuries are quite serious,
though they may not necessarily
prove fatal. His left eye was completely destroyed, and the physi-
«cianslound it necessary to remove
it. The right eye was also in
juied, and the left cheek and the
side of his mouth were terribly cut
■and lacerated by the flying rock.
Besides these injuries to his face, he
received some severe wounds on his
left hand. When the man reached
the hospital, his face presented a
pitiable sight, bleeding gashes covering the entire countenance, and rocks
nearly the size of a walnut being
embedded everywhere in the flesh
The force of tbe explosion may
easily be imagined when it is stated
that pieces of the man's clothing
had been forced fully an inch into
his flesh.
The case is a particularly pitiable
one. Some months ago the man received an injury to his right eye
which nearly destroyed the .vision
of that organ. Now the left eye has
been entirely destroyed, leaving hiin
almost blind. It is impossible to
learn anything of the man's history,
as his mouth is so badly swollen
that it is difficult for him to talk.
He appears to attach no ^blame to
anyone except himself for the accident, however. Ho is unable to account for it, as he says he was very
The doctors are hopeful of the
man's ultemate recovery if compli
cations do not in.

Wheat—Red varieties, Red Fife
(beardless), Chelsea, Marquis, Stanley and Percy (early beardless), Preston, Huron and Pringle's Cham-

Potatoes—Early varieties, Rochester RoBe and Irish Cobbler; medium
to late varieties, Carman No. 1,
Money Maker, Gold Coin and Doo-
ley. The later varieties are as a
rule more productive than the earlier
Only one sample can be sent to
each applicant, hence if an individual receives a sample of oats he
cannot also receive one of wheat,
barley, peas, Indian corn or pota
toes. Lists of names from one individual, or applications for more than
one sample for one hqusehold con-
not be entertained. Tbe samples
will be sent free of charge through
the mail.
Applications should be addressed
to the Director of Experimental
Farms, Ottawa, and may be cent in
any time from the 1st of December
to the 15th of February, after which
the lists will be closed, so that the
samples asked for may be sent out
in good time for sowing. Applicants
should mention the variety they
prefer, with a second sort as an al
ternative. Applications will be
filled in the order in which they are
received, so long as the supply of
seed lasts. Farmers are advised to
apply early to avoid possible disappointment. Those applying for Indian corn or potatoes should bear in
mind that the corn is not usually
distributed until April, and thut
potatoes cannot be mailed until danger from frost in transit is over. No
postage is required on mail matter
uddressed to the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa.
Wm, Saunders,
Director of Experimental Farm.
Free Seed Distribution
By instruction of the minister of
agriculture a distribution of seed is
being made this season of samples
of superior sorts of grain and potatoes to Canadian farmers for the improvement of seed. The stock for
distribution has heen secured mainly
from the experimental farms at
Indian Head, Sask., and Brandon,
Man. The samples consist of oats,
spring wheat, barley, peas, Indian
corn (for ensilage only) and potatoes. The quantity of oats sent is
4 pounds, sufficient in each case to
sow one-twentieth of an acre. The
samples of Indian corn, peas and
potatoes weigh 3 pounds each. A
quantity of each of the following
varieties hag been secured for this

Steel Magnate Buys Land
J. C. MacDonald, manager of iho
Grand Forks Structural Steel Works,
has purchased from Messrs. McCallum & McArdle fourteen acres of
fruit land on tho Newby ranch, join
ing tho city limits ut the northwest
corner. Owing to the excellent
quality of the soil, and its convenient location, this is one of the most
valuable tracts of land iu the valley.
Fruit From This Province at,

Exhibitors From Many Parts
of British Columbia Win
| elusive, wus 434, composed of 285
men, 123 Women and 20 children. For
the corresponding period of lust year
the Japanese immigration was 6G48,
The decrease this year is 6214, showing the com plete effectiveness of the
arrangements concluded by Hon. R.
Lemieux with the Japanese government to restrict immigration.
The total immigration into Canada
from April to October shows a decrease of 102,449, or 48 per cent, lis
compared with last year. The immigration from the United States for the
seven months was 50,239, au increase
of 783.
The Colonial Fruit exhibition was
opened in London last Thursday by
Lord Strathcona. British Columbia
had a grand show, carrying off the
gold medal for apple display, and
ten subsidiary medals The subsidiary awards were: Silver and gilt
knightian medal—Kamloops district; Kaslo District Horticultural
association; Thomas Earl, Lytton.
Silver knightjan medal—Summer-
land district; Mrs. J. A. Smith,
Spence's Bridge. Silver banksian
medal—Salmon Arm Faamers' exchange. Bronze banksian medal—
Victoria District; Salt Spring Island;
James Johnstone, Nelson; James
Cartrell, Summerland; Chilliwack
district. Ontario and Nova Scotia
governments also won gold medals
for collections of fruit. Nova Scotia
also won fourteen subsidiary medals.
To Induce Immigration
R. M. Palmer, deputy minister of
agriculture, interviewed in London
last week, stated tbat British Columbia had not the slightest intention of
competing for the English market.
The sole object of showing fruit in
the old country is to bring home to
the public the fruit growing possibilities of British Columbia. There are
quite enough of low priced apples
produced in England to meet the
home demand, and British Columbia supplies only fruit which England is unable to produce.
Will Compete for Prizes
Messrs. Covert and Collins, the well
known fruit growers, left this morning for Spokane, where they will attend the National Apple show, which
opens in that city next Monday morning. They took with them thirty
boxes of apples for exhibition purposes. Ten of the boxes will be
placed in the 8150 cash prize compe-
tion and the balance will compete for
plate and packing prizes.
Around the World for $600
Major George P. Ahern, who has
returned to Manila from a trip around
the world and across Siberia on the
Trans-Siberian railway, published the
details of his trip in the Manila Times,
and says that the actual cost of the
trip is less than K600. This is the
itinerary and its cost:

Cement Building Blocks
Messrs. Harry Lutley and W. J.
Galipeau's machine for manufacturing
cement buildihg block has arrived in
the city, and they, have given it an
experimental test by making about
thirty of the cement blocks. They j
report the test as having been entirely satisfactory. It is claimed that
with this machine this kind of build-
ing material can be manufactured
nearly as cheaply as brick. It is cer- j
tainly more durable than the latter,
besides making a handsomer building.
Departure of an Old-Timer
Jeffery Hammar, who has been
manager of P. Burns & Co.'s meat
market in this eity for the past ten
or twelve years, left on Saturday for
Calgary, where he will meet Blake
Wilson, the district manager of the
company. After a conference with
Mr. Wilson, Mr. Hamiiuir will go
to New Westminster, whero he is to
become manager of a new market
which is to be established in that
city by P. Burns & Co.
Mr. Hammar, during his residence
here, has been one of our most pro-1
gressive oitszene, and the people!
generally will regret his departure. I
He ser" ed the city two years as
mayor, besides acting as alderman
for a number of terniB. In lodge circles especially Mr. Hammar will be
grearty missed, having been an active member and an indefatigable
worker in a number of the- fraternal
organizations Last year he was
elected grand chancellor commander
for British Columbia of the Knights
of Pythias. Mr. Hammar still
owns considerable property in tho
city, and his family will continue
their residence here until he gets
located in Now Westminster.
Jap Immigration Decreasing
The immigration of Japanese into
Canada for the seven months of the
fiscal   year from April to October, in-
Totals(68 days). 23,979 1,623 .$564.59
These figures include meals on the
ship transportation—Manila to Kobe,
Tsurugu to Vladivostok, London to
New York, and San Francisco to
If one did not bave, as Maj. Ahern
had, the privilege of going hy Allien,
cun governmens 11unspent from Suu
Francisco to Mahila, for ubout $1 a
day, meals included, the co-tjof the
trip would be ubout $150 more. Even
then it would be cheap enough for a
trip around the world, unci fur cheaper
than one taken in eighty days by
Phineas Fogg (.lulus Verne) of imperishable memory.
The trip hy Trans-Siberian from
Vladivostok to Moscow—0,201 miles
for if 156.35, first class—is about the
cheapest first-class ruilncud traveling
in the world on a regular ticket for un
ordinary trip.
This Province Will Furnish
Metal for the Canadian
Gold Coins
Assayer Pearson Sizing Up
the Production of the
Canadian gold coins will soon be
an assured fact. This is apparent
from the visit to the Pacific slope of
Mr. R. Pearson, chief assayer in the
Ottawa mint, who has been travel -
ing through the Boundary and
Kootenay with the object of investigating the gold resources of the
lower part of the province. He will
probably visit the Yukon in a few
Mr. Pearson states that plans for
the gold refigery to be erected in
Ottawa in connection with the mint
have been completed, and ne expects
that construction work will commence immediately. He anticipates
the production of gold coins in Canada in the near future, although he
is unable to state exactly when the
coinage will commence. Almost tbe
entire production of gold in the Dominion will be required for the
manufacture of coins at Ottawa,
which will stem the goldeu tide that
is now flowing across the boundary
line into the United StatcB. While
refusing to disclose the result of his
preliminary investigation? into the
gold resources of the province, ho
states 120,000 ounces of gold are
brought out every year with the copper, in the interior, and intimates
tbat anfmgements might be made to
extract that valuable metal from
copper for use in the Otttwa mint.
Paper billB, he Bays, will still be
used after the introduction of. gold
coins, but he is of the opinion that
gold money will be more generally'
Mclnnis Joins Benedicts
John Mclnnis, M.P.P. for Grand
Forks riding, nnd Miss Fannie Aft-
Kinnon, recently from Cape Breton, were united in marriage at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Danny Deane,
in I'hoenix, last week, Rev. Samuel
Lundie performing the ceremony.
Mr. and Mrs. Mclnnis have gone to
the coast on a month's honeymoon,
and will probably not return to the
Boundary until after the close of the
next session of the legislature, which
meets in Victoria in January.

eighteen months for forgery\>y Judge
Cochrane a couple of weeks ago did
not givo his correct name. It has
been learned that he was a brakeman

He is known us .1. E. Murray in Lethbridge, rnd the authorities there will

WHEN the Hudson Bay railway
is constructed it will be found
that the resources of the country it
traverses will tax its freight carrying
capacity. It hns been stated that
there will not he sufficient traffic to
make the roud pay. Those who entertain this view know nothing of
the resources which would be tributary to the railway. Taking last
year's freight, which should naturally lind an outlet at Hudson bay,
it would require 8000 trains of fifteen cars each to move it.
C* AN ADA is scarcely known to-
V_. day. Some people would be
surprised to hear that far to the
north of the National Transcontinental railway there is a fertile
wheat belt, and a climate much
milder than is to be found five hundred miles to the south. This is
easily accounted for; it is sufficient
here just to state the facts. What
the Canadian Pacific is to the territory through which it passes, the
National Transcontinental road will
be to the country north of it, and
even then there will be room and
business for yet another great transcontinental system when the country to the north and west iB better
known than it is at present.
THE Liberal governmeut has
grasped what always escaped
the Conservatives when in power,
and|that is the greatness of Canada,
and the immensity of her undeveloped resources. This fact alone
will make it necessary and desirable
to retain in power a government
that faith in thc future of the Dominion, and one that is not afraid
to give practical evidence of its faith
by aiding railway construction
wherever required. The duty of the
hour is now to finish the National
Transcontinental railway, commence
the Hudson Bay railway, assist the
All-lied rotne, get to work on the
Georgian Bay canal. To these great
national undertakings the Liberal
government will give its best abilities nnd constant attention, and the
people will lind every reason to congratulate themselves that they
placed renewed confidence in a government that has always performed
more than was ever promised, and
that the country at all times has received tbe benefit.

eventually pay for that -'something"
you presumably got for nothing. The
only inducements that we offer are
quality, cleanliness, promptness and
civility. Our prices nre as low as
the high quality of our goods will permit, and while we are not all the tiuio

The recent visit to Prince Rupert
.of President Hays, of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, and his trip up
the Skeena for a hundred miles, taking a look for himself as to how the
work of building the railway was getting on, has resulted in Foley, Welch
<fe Stewart getting orders to push the
work faster. Every time the Transit
arrives she brings railway laborers to
Prince Rupert. Most of tliem aie
Italians, and thoy are forwarded to
the camps along the Skeena without
delay. Fifteen hundred or two thousand more men are needed, as for every
hundred brought in 25 to 50 quit and
go south again. But, iiotwithstaiid-
• ing there is now a shortage of men, it
may be stated thut 30 per cent of the
work on the first one hundred miles
is done. If 30 per cent of the work
on the first one hundred miles hus been
done in six months, during which time
many difficulties had to be overcome,
it is not unreasonable to expect that
50 per cent of the total will be completed in the next six months, or by
the end of April, and three mouths
will see the grade completed und track-
laying at work.
Seven steam shovels, so it is said,
have been ordered rushed to Prince
Rupert, where two of tliem will work
where it is understood the work is
now in charge of Foley, Welch ct Stewart. Two more will be used on the
south end of Kaien island, where a
half-mile fill has been mude. The final
location of the line is not across Porpoise islund to the mainland at Inver-
ness,Jbut is along the south end of
Kaien island and across to the mainland over Watson island. This takes
the line through Port Edward town-
site. It makes the line about a mile
longer, but does away nith extensive
bridging, as Porpoise channel would
be crossed by a drawbridge had the
line run across Porpoise island. The
other steam shovels will be used at
points along the Skeena river.

engineer parties engaged in location
work havo tied onto  each

Than His Stomach
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering irom weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, whioh impairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. When a man " doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has an uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach alter eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond,
•nt, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such  a man should use  Dr.  Pierce's   Golden Medical
Discovery.  It cures diseases of the stomach and other
tit-inns ot digestion and nutrition.  It enriches the blood.

New.Smeiting Process
If a new process nl smelting ore,
which waa exhibited puhl cly lor lhe
first time hist week at West Se«ttle,
proves successful commercially, as
il appeared to be at the demonstration, it will revolutionize the mining
industry of the world, in the
opining of several mining men
who saw it.
The deinonstiition took place at a
small smeller erected for the purpose on the west side of the hay, by
the Oold Creek mining and Smelting
coinpany, which owns the patent to
the process. The inventor is A. W.
Catton, of West Seattle, wbo bag
spent ten years in studying and improving the process.
Copper ore was dumped into the
top of the furnance, and half an
hour later was taken out in what the
inventor asserts is much purer form
than that in which it comes from
any other smelter in the country.
The smelting is done by what is
called a hydro-oxygen-carbon process. The heat, instead of being
generated by coke and charcoal,
whicli are expensive as fuel, is made
by the union of crude oil with steam
and air, producing a temperature of
520;) degrees Fahrenheit, or twice
that in an ordinary smelter. The
heat comes in from the top, and
passes over the heap ot ore in one
end of the furnace and then over
•mother pile in the other end. It is
in the utilization of the heat wasted
in smelting the ore, in roasting it at
the other end. where much of the
economy of the process is said lo be.
According to Calton, 90 per cent
of the valuable mineral of this coun'
try cannot he touched because of the
expense of handling it by tha pres-
eut process of smelting. One drawback of the process [in use is that
only the highest grade ore can be
handled profitably hy it. Besides
the cost of erecting a smelter runs
from $100,000 to 85,200,000.
As compared to Ihis, one of the
new smelters, with a capacity of 50
toft's, can be erected fur $16,000. All
the material required for its construction can be hauled to the most
inaccessible mine without much
Cost, and he erected on the spot.
Then the refined ore may bc shipped
at comparatively little expense. If
necessary, it can be taken out on
pack horses. At the pressent time
it is impracticable, except in a few
instances, tu erect a smelter on the
ground, owing to the grent expense,
and tu transpurt the ure by railroad
or steamship is costly. Often it is
impracticable to build a railroad to
a mine.
Early Christmas shopping means a
much larger assortment to choose
from, plenty of time to make a careful
I selection, anil u much   better   service.

Rheumatism Recipe
A well known authority on rheumatism gives the following valuable,
though simple and harmless, prescription, which any uno can easily
prepare at home:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon,onioUnoe;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
.Shake well in a buttle and take a
teaspoonful dose after etch meal and
at bedtime.
He states that the ingredients can
he obtained from auy good prescription pharmacy nt small oust, and being of vegetable extraction, are
harmless to lake.
This pleasant mixture, tnken
regularly for a few days, is snid to
overcome almost any caBe of rheumatism. The pain and swelling,
if nny, diminishes with each dose
until permanent results are obtained,
nnd without injuring tho stomach.
While   there   are   many   so-called
rheumatism remedies, patent medicines, etc., some of which do give
relief, few really give permanent results, and the above will, no doubt,
he greatly appreciated by many sufferers here at this time.
Inquiry at the drug stores of this
neighborhood elicits the information
shot these drugs are harmless and
oan be bought, separately, or the
druggists here will mix the prescrip-
tiun for our reoders if asked to.
