P. 11. line  has such a disastrous accident happened on it and nothing that man  could do svas left undone by the company's stall under Gen. Supt. Marpole  and Supt. Duchesnay to mitigate its  horror, and svith svhat success and  energy they labored is svitne.ssed in'  the rescue of tsvo inmates of the  doomed depot.  Word has bv-en received from Agent  C.itor's brother and his svifu's father at  Bosvinanville, Out.,, to have the bodies  of thiit family forwarded there.

This hi ought  them into Rogers Pass but lifieen  minutes after the avalanche, jn.-t  about the time occupied in- changing  engines. Had they not done so they  would probably not nosv be looking  after the anxious affairs of Canada's  high svay, over the most difficult and  trying portion of its route.  . A svonderful detail of this distressing  accident svas the discovery of tsvo dogs  pi'i-feclly unharmed ,and of it 'canary  clinging frightened but, uninjured ,lo  the bars of its battel oil cage.  The slide that did this dreadful  damage svas svhat is knosvn as a r" dry  slide."' No svet slide cont'd have travelled the distance it did and .though the  company had previously, taken the  precaution of moving the buildings  further from the, funnel gorge dosvn  svhich it came 'it wasn't far enough to  save them from such an unusual and  asvful avalanche .as1 that, of Tuesday  and svhich il is hoped may never occur  again.

The session svill not last much longer  and it svould be a great pity if the  stain svhich it is claimed us left on  Mr. Sibbald by tlie manner of his dismissal is not explained before it meets  again.

Morris i*c Steed,  et al.,   Revel-'  elstokp, B. CL       o  Gentlemen.��������� I have the honor to  acknosvledge Hip receipt of your' petition dated the 2lst, inst., calling attention to facts iind'conditions respecting the river bank protection, svorks  nosv being cariied on at Revelstoke,  and praying the government to in-  ciease the rate of'svages  being paid to  men of the different classes  to tlie extent of 50 cents per diem.  In reply I beg to inform you that the  government have  fully considered the0  subject   of   your   pet'itiou   and   vet v  much regret their inability  to comply  svith the piayer of the petftioiiers.  The protection woi ks are being carried out at a very large expense for the  sole benefit of I lie tosvn of Revelstoke  and the estimate of lbe cost of this  svork made by the government engineer svas based upon a rate.of svages  of, 52 per diem for laborers. If these  rates svere increased in tho manner  suggested by the petition it svould be  impossible to carry out the works  within the suin provided for the service.  I beg the petitioners will fully  understand that the government have;  the interests of tlie working  men in mind and desire to meet their  views as fur as possible iu all rea-on-  able matters; but under the circumstances in connection svith the protection svorks it is impossible to comply svith tho present request.  I have the honor to he, gentlemen,  Your obedii'iit servant,  i *  C. A. SEMLIN",  Chief Commissioner L. & \V.  The above letter, svhich is self explanatory, will lie discussed and action  taken thereon by a mass meeting of  the workmen and others interested, to  be h"ld in Tapping's opera house next  Weduwdny niirht.

The paragraph referring to incoipo-

little confidence in her Jim ordered the big
rustling mat sails to be hauled up_ tighter
and lighter. He did not knosv their
names���at least any name that ss-ouldhe
likely to interest a Uhinaman���hut Krh-
Ti-c hud not hanged about the waters of
the Malay archipelago for nothing, and as,
lie ss-pur, he rolled forsvard svilh the
biiiiihoo the sails rose like eastern inciui-

Early 11=1 they svei;o on (he river a big
AiiT'i-ican kerosene ship sva-. ahead of them

She ssould draw all ol',seventeen feet, and
irhccoiild nteer by her they svould ho safe.
��� It is ono thing to .sciii-i-y up and dosvn the
James and Mary in a police tug svithout
re-poii-vibiiity. and quire another to cram
a havd-inoiitlied old junk iiumss tho same
s ui'ls iiL)i:e. svith Hie-certainly of a thrash-
if you came out alive. Jim glued his eyes
Li the Ainciican and sasv that at Eu.tali
she dropped hci" tug 1 and slood dosvn the
river ���'under sail, lie all but svliooped
!iloud, for ho knosv that the number of
p lois svhoi. preferred to svork a ship
through the Jiimci and Mary svithout a

Jim laked her svith his spy glass and sasy-
Jiis father on the poop with an iinlighted

kucsv. svould be smoked on the other side
of the James and Mary, and Jim felt so
entirely safe and happy that ho lit a cigar
