Alleged Massacre' by the Japs at Port  ' ,   , Arthur.     ��������� <  -  The   London' Times, correspondent  states   that  the    slaughter. at   Port  Arthur was carried out with every revolting feature of primeval barbarity."  Four days were spent in murder and  pillage,.and,from  dawn'to dark horrible mutilations of every conceivable  kind and nameless'atrocities were per-*  petrated.   Prisoners were tied together  ingroups and riddled with bullets and  then hacked to pieces'.   Boats crowded  with fugitives of, both sexes and, all  ages received volley   after   volley of  bullets.   The streets were strewn with,  corpses showing every form of mutilation.   The soldiers wei;e apparently unchecked in their deeds of blood by their  commanders, who, totally losing their  European veneer,*showed absolute unconsciousness of  the   effect of  these  brutalities on ^their Western visitors.  They, did not, forget to be effusively  attentive to them, and did not appear  to suspect that their guests were filled  with indignation and disgust.  In an editorial the Times says it is  impossible to doubt that the general in  command could have stopped the barbarities if he felt so disposed, but his  failure to prevent it has cast an indelible blot on the Japanese arms and has  gone fai' to destroy the admiration  which Europe was so liberally extending to them.  A Strange Coincidence.  It would be difficult"to find anything  in the,pages of fiction' to equal the fol-  lovying fact, which has just happened  in Scotland : ' A Captain Heathcote  rents a moor from year to year. Last  year while out shooting he lost a diamond ring. This year he vvas reminded  of it by the anniversary of his loss, and  sitting by the -fire, and taking up a  piece of peat to put on, he had scarcely  uttered the words, " It is a year to-day  since I lost my diamond ring," than  his companion was suprised to hear the  words quickly followed by " and here  it is." The peat had been cut from the  very moor where the loss had occurred,  and hence its recovery. No other account 'of extraordinary recovery of  diamonds could equal that, unless,  perhaps, that of .a lady'who dropped a,  diamond into a pond and found it some  months after on the leaf of a water-  lily which had borne it upwatds in its  growth. ' t,  A TRAGEDY IN NEW WESTMINSTER.  Thrilling Plot for a Novel.  Last week the body of a man was  found under a wharf' in. New West-  minstei% which on being cleansed of  mud was found to be stabbed in the  neck. From papers in the pockets and  other sources, Chief of Police Huston  has obtained the followiug particulars  of the murdered man, whose name  was Heinrich Zechow, a German, who  had been residing in San Francisco for  about two years :  , ," Jacob Zechow left Germany in 1851,  and emigrated to the United States,  settling at Port Orchard, Wash. He  appears to have been an - industrious  and economical man, and ,by.degrees  accumulated much wealth, which was  largely invested in lands. He took an  Indian woman to live with him, and  when he died, in 1877, left a son by heri,  who was then 17 years of age. Zechow,  commonly called Sigo, left no will, and  the estate, consisting of 70,acres within  the present limits of the city of Seattle,  another block of 817������ acres of farming  land, besides lots of farms in various  parts, of the territory, all went to the  half-breed son.  ,  " In 1892, Heinrich Zechow, the murdered man, who'had just arrived from  Germany, met a man in San Francisco  who itsked him why he did not go and  see his  uncle,  Jacob Zechow, at Port  Orchard,   who   was   a   wealthy   man.  Heinrich decided to look up his unclu,  all trace of whom had "-been lost,to the  family for a good many years.'   Arriving ' at Port Orchard, he found Jacob  Zechow had been dead foi^lo years, and  that his half-breed son was in .possession of all his wealth.    Heinrich made  enquiries   but  could obtain  no proof  that his uncle had ever been legally  married to the Indian woman, and so  took steps on behalf of himself and his  brothers and sisters in Germany to contest the settlement of the estate.   He.  had   accumulated  a   great  mass   , of  papers relating to the matter, including proofs of his relationship to Jacob  Zechow, copies of all  the court orders  ���������'in connection with the administration  and settlement of the estate, affidavits  ,of various people,1 etc.    Thes'e papers  .were all found on the murdered man.  "It would appear that he was ready  to bring the matter into court when  the murderer'sknife put.an end to his  existence.   The chief of police is firmly  convinced  that Zechow was lured to  New Westminster  and   murdered  to  prevent him  taking,the steps he contemplated for the recovery of his uncle's  estate.   What brought him to British  Columbia, where it is hardly likely he  knew anyone, is a mystery that may  never be explained.   As Zechow was  an American citizen, the local authori-  look for  the active assistance and cooperation of the Washington police, so  that the victim's movements may be  traced to the fatal spot, if that is at all  possible,"  Terrible Fatal Fire in Toronto.  Vast Quantities  of  Gold and  Silver  Bullion.  '  The Director of U. S. Mints, Mr.  Preiton, has instructed Supt. Towns-  end, of the Philadelphia mint, to begin  the coinage of .$22,000,000 of gold bullion  now stored-in the mints and which is  a part of the gold reserve. The gold  will be coined into eagles and half-  eagles, and the work will occupy a  month. The Director stales that there  i.s enough silver bullion in the mints to  keep the forces busy for five years  were it to be coined. The disposition  of thc metal, however, is subject to  the order of the treasury and no statement has been issued regarding it.  It was the Skeleton of a Lunatic.  The skeleton found at Bitrnaby Lake,  near New Westminster, has , been  proved to be that of Frank Hallgarth,  a lunatic, who escaped from the asylum a year ago last month. He was  sent out to em ply some spittoons and  ran away. He was a native of Iowa,  and was 32 years of age at the time of  his death. While the skeleton was  lying at the lakeside some one stole  the skull, which has not been returned  although advertised for; so the poor  remains will probably be buried without the head.  The "Globe" Building Destroyed.  One of, the worst fires that has visited  Toronto in many years occurred there  early on Sunday morning, wiping out'  in a few hours over a million dollars  worth of property.   Several inches of  snow covered the roofs, and to this circumstance may'be, ascribed the fact  that the burning brands did not carry  destruction to a larger area.   The fine  building occupied by the Globe,'nt the  corner of.Yonge anil Mel in da streets, is  a mass of ruins and the valuable plant  entirely destroyed, together with the  files of the paper for a quarter of a  century.     In  addition  to   this,  Chief  Ardagh, of, the fire brigade, was badly  injured, one fireman killed, and several  others more or less hurt.   ,But,'perhaps, the greatest shock to dwellers in  the, Queen  City   was   the   knowledge  forced upon them that with the apparatus at its disposal   the  fire brigade  seemed utterly unable to cope with the  conflagration'..  The fire originated in the Globe building, and completely destroyed it. The  printing plant, worth $70,000, is entirely ruined, and the company's total  loss will reach $100,000. The insurance  is $100,000.' The Toronto Lithographing Co., whose plant was - in the same  building, lose $150,000, and the insurance is less than half that amount."  McKinnon, drygoods,' lost everything.  He had moved into a new building  only a few days before. He at once  cabled to his buyer in England to ship  fresh goods immediately, and he hopes  to resume business next week.- Harry  Webb's immense restaurant ou Yonge  street was also destroyed: Among  the business'houses who suffered loss  were Michie & Co., wholesale grocers;  Miller & Richard, typefounders; Win.  Brough, printer; and Ha worth & Co.,  belting. ' - , '  The Globe building was- heightened'  and almost, rebuilt about four years  ago at a cost of $70,000, and was probably the most complete and commodious  newspaper building, in Canada.- Two  splendid" Bullock presses' and eight  Mergan thaler t$*pe - setting machines  that cost $3,000 each are a mass of  ruin, and, the fine stereotyping plant,  electric motors to drive the presses and  a magnificent engine sire all destroyed.  A meeting of tlie Globe directors was  held the same afternoon and it is likely  the company will soon begin the erection of a finer building than the one  just burned. All the city papers vied  with each other in urging the* Globe to  make use of the facilities of their offices,  and' theo staff of the Empire, from  whose office the Globe issued a ten-page  paper���������two pages larger than usual-  Monday morning, is doing everything  to' make the Globe people comfortable  till they get temporary quarters. The  paper had much the same look as usual  with a heading identical with that of  Saturday's issue. The Globe safe was  opened after two , hours' work by experts when the contents were found to  be intact. .  All of the firemen who were injured  are doing well and will probably recover.' The walls of the Globe-dud  McKinnon's buildings are in a danger-  condition and will have to be pulled  down.  Odds and Ends from the Legislative  Assembly.  RED MOUNTAIN RAILWAY.   -  Last Monday Mr. Eberts moved the  second reading of the Red Mountain.  Railway Bill, to extend the time for  the commencement and completion of  that enterprise. He explained that  the promoters had not found it advisable up tdi1 the present to go on with  the work, which, however, is one that  must prove of great advantage to the  Trail Creek mines.  Mr. Kellie asked that  the bill l������e laid '  over for 'a few days,  as he  wished to  receive certain  information from tiie  district in addition  to that already in  his possession.   That is,  to the'effect  that it is quite feasible' to  build a rail- '  way   to  serve' this    purpose   within''  Canadian territory, at the average cost  .of a mountain railway, and a telegram'',''  ���������Lo that effect had been received by the ���������  Chief    Commissioner    of' Lands -and  Works.     He" therefore .'moved   - the'  adjournment of the debate  until Mori-  day next.      " ' '   c  Mr.'Eberts did  not see why this bill '  should be held over, after passing the  railway    committee,   simply   because  someone sent a telegram  that another ���������'  road could be built somewhere else.  Mr. Hume explained that it was con,- <,  tended  before, the   commitjteo that a  railway to serve the purpose of this  one, so far as the mines are, concerned',  cannot be built in Canadian  territory.  Mr.' Kellie having since' gone to ������m;������-  siderable trouble and-some .expense to   ,  show that one cau be built'.there, hie  thought the House should, give ah opportunity  for., this information to. be .  produced.    .  . *  Thc   debate   was   accordingly   ad-'.,  joui-ned....      ,''',.'  Didn't Prospect for it, Either.  A remarkable gold story comes from  Marcellus, Mich. Four miles south of  that (own there is an elevation of land  called Patterson's hill. It is covered  with oak brush and scrubby trees.  A month ago an alleged clairvoyant  went there from Decatur. He said he  had received certain signs and began  digging for gold. The earth was found  to be quite rich with mineral, and it is  claimed that the dirt yielded $100 to  the ton.  tThe Kennedy wire mattress factory  at Toronto Junction was burned late'  on Saturday night, involving a loss of  $44,000; insured for $22,000. It is supposed to be incendiary.  .-  CALLED TOM A  " MOS8SACK.7'. ,"-,. .",  When the House went;into com--'  rnittec on the Mining Bureau Bill, with .-  Mr. Sword in the chair,     ��������� ",.-*.  Mr. Irving said he did not think the -  mining bureau would do the province  any good.   .When, Juan de Fuca entered the straits he needed no-mining  bureau to bring him here; neither did'  a mining bureau take-miners to Cari-y  boo, Cassinr, Kootenay oiv.tlie-Yukoiic-"  It would be ��������� fax better to spend'the  money on trails leading to the mines.'  He moved that  the  committee" ristv. '  Had Mr.'Irving's-motion been-caiTied   ,  it would have killed the bill.  "������������������'  Mr. Adams thought the bureau would  do the province a lot of good. ',<'   '   ''"  Mr, Kitchen supported Mr} Irviii'g'B  motion. Tlio bureau, he said, would-'  not do the mining interests of-the province any good. People wouldv'nbt invest their money in mines on the report of an expert. An ore case in the  provincial museum would do as much  good as a mining bureau. ���������    ,  Mr. Kellie: Of, all the "mosshnck **���������  representatives the last speaker is the  worst.   Who ever heard such a lot of--  rot from a representative of a mining- ���������  province?   Mr. Kellie their'trent onto  tell of the output of the mines of West   *  Kootenay, which,  he held," would be*  increased through a bureau of'mines.  The motion , that the committee "rise  was lost, and the hill was 'reported  complete with amendments.  Awarded  Highest Honors���������World's  Fair  Sullivan's Latest  John L. Sullivan's theatrical combination disbanded rather suddenly at  Paris, Illinois, last week. The collapse  was the result of Sullivan's prolonged  spree. He cursed one of the actresses  until she resigned and departed for her  home in Chicago. Sullivan was escorted to the opera house that night but  his condition vvas such that his manager, Mr. J. Ward, remonstrated with  him, whereupon John L. beat Ward so  badly that he had to be put to bed.  l-UOVI.VCIAI. POLICE.  - Hon. Mr.'Davie moved the second  reading of the police and special constables bill. He said the. purpose "of  this, as stated while the estimates were  being discussed, is to place the provincial police thoroughly under the control of the Superintendent in'every  respect; and among other things-it'  provides in effect that members of the  force shall have no vested rights to live  in any particular place, but may be  moved from station to station as the  interests of the service require.

no wonder that the poor imbecile
whose skeleton was found last, week
on, .the shore of l>urnub���y. JDakc ran
away. In December, 1893, he was
sent outside to empty sonic spittoons,
and ran away. 'Whether any search

sayeth not. Probably '(hero was, and
veiy likely the   searchers -passed very

he.had sense enough to -know that, his
-.punishment would', be something lerri-
ble'if taken .back to the asylum. That
his great desire \vas,.to elude pursuit is
1 evidenced by thc fact that, the skeleton
was found in a dark hiding-place be-

he knew enough to prefer death to the

The  new Act  regarding the   Provincial Police *ri!l   bear rather hardly
on   certain    members   of    that   body,
mostly old-timers, who heretofore have
had the privilege of being permanent
fixtures   in   the ',posts  to which they
were appointed.    Most   of  tiioin  liave
ako,lipid  various   other   appointments
in their districts, such as G&voiiuiienl,
Agent,   mining   ipeorder, , regisliar of
County Courts and of bii ths, marriages
! and deaths.'    Of course, such oliices as
assessor and collector'of taxes-, and perhaps that, of mining recorder may still
be filled by provincial  constables  with
benefit to themselves and the province,
but it would b'o d iiii cult   for   them tn
carry out tho important duties of gold
commissioner   or   (Jovennnent Agent,
as by the  time they bad   become fuliy
acquainted   with  the  routine  of' their
office Ihey might be shifted to n,station
whore gold  commissioners  and mining
recorders are not needed. ��� Mr. JJavie's
bili'reinoves the Provincial police force
fiom the jurisdiction of tho Attorney -
General's oliiee and places it undei (he
'control of the Superintendent of police
in  Victoria.,   Among other   things it
provides   in   eil'oct " thrit members-of
the force shall have no vested rights to
live in any particular   place,  but may
fbe  moved  from   station to station a.s
the interests of  the  service require."
I t-ist generally' thought  (hat  the Act
has   been   created  for  the purpose of
removing   snine,. very   old-timers   who'
are   past    performing,,.anything   'like

Railway Traffic Stopped for Three Days.
The heavy fall of snow in the mountains during the past week has ctu.-t'd,
considerable delay, (o trains on .the
.main line, both east and west, (hehust
one to arrive here up to the time of
mm ting this being Wednesday evening'.- P.u-iiic Express, which came in
several hours late. The largest snow-
sliti.^ oci-ni-reil yesterday at the lHr.ii
eroding of the lllecillewaet, and is said
to have been 230 ft. long by -10 ft. deep.
Then* were also several smaller slides
down between that point and Donald.
About forty men, including the gangs
working on the bridge, was all that
could be mustered, and these were sent
out, but the force; was rather too small
to ilo jnuch execution. Last year, two
or throe hundred men were employed in
clearing obstructions at, the same place,
but I lie 1 cecal reduction^ m the working force have made itTiifficiilt to pick
up so many men at short notice. The
Donald rotary went out to attack (he
slide*-, at that end, and no tidings of its
vviiei eabtinl-, had ' bt'e'ii received up to
last, night, the telegraph lines being
down at different places. ';
Telephone communication between
the lower town and station was broken
enroll'Wednesday night, thejines being
down at (he bottom of Front .street.
Westward the biggest block occurred
at Cl uiwilliain, and the. Uevolsloke rotary went o'ut Thursday morning. The
Atlantic Kxpress, due. liei c at 9.1 ,"3 a.ni.,
arrived at the other side ot the slide,
but lucked to fSicamous., Thc rotary
tint through and went on westwanl
tn ch-ai- othei; slides and to turn
i-ouii.I, but on reburniiig wa.s a gain
blocked at Clanwilliain by huge Midi's
that had come down during her absence. Neither the rolary nor cxpicss
tiii'iietl up until this (Saturday) aftoi-
110011, when about 1.30 the i-otaiy and
work I rain steamed across' the bridge,
followed closely by the pa.-soiigcr train
".\"hii'!i should have urrived Thiu-.scla.y

second passenger train came in, and
the third pur. in an appearance'-soon
after, followed Ly a freight train. Thi^
passengers a re being made comfortable
here, where their slay is likely to be an
extended one, as another big slide came
down ;it the 13lii crossing and .sever.x]

Lewis' woodshed on  Thursday-night:  We understand that the next public  event of importance will be a masquerade ball.  "VV. R. Reid went down'-to Nakusp  by the last boat. He is going to work  for P. Genelle as a blacksmith.  Mr. W. S. Jones, lately  officer on the str. Columbia, has been  appointed to a new station atRosslaud.  A party of nine gentlemen'and three  ladies of Rossland visited Northport in  . sleighs for the New Year's ball at the  Grand View Hotel.  '   Robt.  Wetmore left for Banff last  week to take iu the hot springs.   Bob  '   is troubled with rheumatism.   Old age  does not come by it!self.  '       Dr. Ei H. S. McLean   has   received  notice from the Provincial Secretary's  office of bis   appointment as coroner  for this district.  Mr. John Bourke having purchased  the bouse built by Mr. James Harper,  on the new addition north of the track,  the family moved.into it on Thursday.  Messrs. R. Mai pole, supt. C.P.R., and  J. A. Mara, M.P., arrived at Vancouver on Sunday in Mr. Marpole's private  car, and left on' the charmer for  Victoria. <r  ,, The annual general ine������eting of (he  Revelstoke -'Printing Co., adjourned  from the '2nd Jan., will be'held next  Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock in  the fire ha 11.  Several young people of the lower  town had a dance and supper in the  large dining room atthe smelter house,  last night." Gilbert Northey, -concer-  tinisb, provided the music.  ' The' Northport .Veres shouts '"Hurrah!" because the Sheep Creek wagon  iiiad is open and ore can now be carried  from the Trail mines to Northport.  Hurrah, too!  "We arc informed that steps are being  taken to farm a company to build a  public, hall in the lower town, such a  step having been rendered necessary'  by the closingof Peterson's hall.  0 Mr.' Thos. Wren, railroad contractor,  who has lately been in Nelson left for  Rossland, by way of Northport. ��������� He  has gieat faith "in the Trail, Creek  district, and is probably lookiug up a  new route for a railway.* -  Tho chimney of the Mail building  again caught lire.last night and blazed  with its usual'energy,' but was speedily  squelched.

He  had intended - leaving hist Monday  morning', but will wait until the snow  hardens.  Miss 'Lizzie Lindsay will be married  to Mr. Archibald McCuaig.on Tuesday,  Jan. 22nd,,at the residence of Mr. and  Mrs.  M. McKay,  at   the station,  for  Ore is now being hauled over the  sleigh road from the Trail Creek mines  to .Northport.  D. McKellar's stage line between  Rossland and Northport is now running  regularly, meeting all trains at the  latter place and carrying the mails.  A dance was .held at the Grand  Hotel, Rossland, last Friday night,  when there was a good attendance  from Northport. n  Alex. Lynch, of Rossland, has disposed of his interest in the Clifton  Hotel to Mrs. J. M. Stewart and T. B.  Garrison. Rossland (formerly Thompson) is at the southern end of Revelstoke riding.        , '  \Ve may expect ere long to see the  price of furs considerably reduced,  owing to a glut, in the' market. Win.  McCuIloch lias just started on a trapping expedition to the upper parts of  Jordan Pass, hence the anticipated  slump in prices.���������������  Gold Commissioner Fitzstubbs, who  has just retui ned from a visit to Trail  Creek and Rossland,' expressed his approval of the site'of the town as suitable to the district.- He inspected the  Le Roi and War Eagle mines in company wiUi'-Measrs. W. M. Newton and  \V. S.' Jones, and, studied the watei  supply question with a view to 'securing the interests of residents in Rossland, as well as the mine owners. -  We have been cut off from  the outside world since late Wednesday night,  when   the.   last   mail'fiom   the  east  arrived.   This has delayed the arrival  of our parcel  of,'plate matter,,and we  are compelled to use plate that has appeared  before.'' The  western  mail :ir-  rived as far as Clanwilliam  on.TIiurs-  'da.v 'morning, but   had to put back to  Sicatnous, as (he track  was  blockaded  for a considerable distance by immense  suowslidos ; the   three '��������� delayed  mails  arriving here this afternoon.,   No mail  has   been  received   from, down   river  points since Monday.'  ���������   Charlie Norleins and D. McEaehern  arrived down from Big'Bend on Sunday.   They found It excellent walking  till they reached Game's Greek, whore  they,had  to  put on their snowshoes.  They   'ropoit    the    snowfall    around  Downie  Creek as  vorj-y  slight.   They  expect to  return on Monday. - Charlie  -is now working on  his claim in Gold  Stream, which he says is looking most  promising.    His partner is Sol Holden,  with  whom he was associated in the  late sale of the Smith Creek mine.   Sol  went' east on a,holiday trip and is ex-  expected back  this- spring,when they  will put up a lot of money, in.developing tue Gold Stream claim; McEaehern*  is woi king with Harry Howard on a rich  claim on "Gold' Stream,   not far from  Norleins'.place.'   "They  bring good re-  norts  li'oni all the mines in the Bend,  but,  when   they  left the cold snap had  put a temporary stop to placer work.  NOW WE KNOW WHY.  which interesting event a large number of invitations have been issued. ��������� ���������  Two carloads of horses arrived here  from Calgary last Sunday, and were  taken down-to the Wigwam over the  R. & A. L. Railway,- where they were  put to work hauling ore. over the sleigh  road .between that point and the head  of the lake.  Mr. and Mrs. Tlios. Lewis entertained  ,a party of friends at their residence on  "Wednesday evening, and on Thursday  evening the Misses Lewis invited a  number of young people to their home,  , where a most pleasant evening was  spent. '       '  H. O. Johnson, who was tightening  up the* brake', block of a C.P.R. engine  with atiMron bar in the roundhouse'on  'Monday, got a terrific rap oil the nose  by the bar slipping back iu his face,  lie is now wearing several inches 'of  sticking plaster, which does not add-to  his beauty. ' i  Mr. Fletcher, of Vernon, brought in  . foiir teams of horses for work on the  'Sle'igh road between the Wigwam and  , Bannock Point. He took the animals  down on the R. & A. Ji. cars, leaving  them in charge of teatnsteis, and returned here on Wednesday, leaving for  home the same evening.  One of thc gentlemen with' whose  name our punster made free last week  sends us the following: "This will, 1  hope, go you' one better: Puns on  peoples .surnames are not considered in  the best possible taste, nor-R-they  "���������'"���������"���������   good,  Very  during  Ir  mis  are  such a dearth of  necessai'V-  permissiblc  news as now.    , ,  The-weather changed* on Tuesday,  when (he cold spell had its nose put  out of joint by the arrival of a big  thaw. Since then " the beautiful " has  been piling up em the landscape and  the housetops, till there seems every  probability that the snowfall this  winter will equal that of last, year.

Another gentleman sent his.order accompanied by  $25 to a grocery (inn and has never  heard from the firm'since.1 In course  of time people will learn. How would'  it do to try our own merchants with a  $15 or $25 cash order?"  The Vernon News devotes a whole  column to the subject, from which we  cut the following: >     '  "It.would be. interesting to know  just how much hard cash left this town  during the.past year for the piirchase  of 'articles from eastern in Ji chants  which could havo been .obtained for  about the same price in this city. It is  certain that ,a sufficient amount has  been sent away to have made a very  appreciable addition to the balance  sheets of. our local merchant's had it  been distributed among our city stores.  One large' retail firm in Toronto annually reaps a rich harvest from ��������� this  district. Their catalogues are scattered  broadcast over the country, and every,  mail and,express brings in numerous  parcels ��������� addressed to residents in this  city. Some months ago we were informed that on an average over $100 a  week was sent away from our post  office in money orders alone for this  purpose. Possibly half as much more  accompanied this enclosed in registered  letters; and as many tu* the parcels  come CO.I), it i.s not impossible that  the total -amount may foot up to  $10,000 in the course of a year. This is  a drain upon the city's financial  resources which caiuiot hei]) hut make  itself felt in a town of this'size.  " Another objectionable feature  about this traffic is that, many of the  people who are in the habit of "buying  from outside, ruii'long-windedacqoiuits  with home, merchants. These bills in  many cases remain unpaid, while if  anything is seen in one of the enticing  catalogues which catch the eye of the  debtor, the money which should in  common honesty be paid to the merchant who has accommodated them  with credit, is sent away for the coveted  article. In the majority of cases no  direct saving is effected. Tho goods  are frequently of an inferior quality,  and with the postage or express'added  come to about tiio same price as is  asked by local dealers. ,  Merchants in the coast cities have  never been over anxious for Kootenay's  trade, and it appeared strange to the  people of this district that while Winnipeg, Spokane,' Toronto, and even  Chicago, were making efforts to get a  share' of our trade, Vancouver and  Victoria were'not only indifferent, but  almost churlish in their refusal to  touch it. The "Victoria correspondent  of the Winnipeg Commercial, however,  is. able to throw a little light on the  matter, and now we know why. He  says:  ."Up country trade is reported very  good. In the mining towns money was  spent most liberally for Christmas  presents. Scarcely a dollar's worth of  Christinas supplies was obtained from''  the Canadian coast. Vancouver, and  Victoria jobbing houses have been actually* coaxed to send goods into the  Kootenayicountry, but nave resolutely  declined. Your correspondent interviewed several wholesale men to ascertain the reason of the apparent apathy.  A variety of reasons were fjiveu, the'  chief one being-that collections were  difficult to make,' and on account of  the small profits obtained/,owing to'  the competition from eastern points, the  game was not worth the trouble. This  vvas certainly the case two -or three  years ago, as Vancouver and Victoria  iirms know lo their cost, but things are  said t'o be difl'eient now.' There is abundance of money in ch dilation up  country among the'mines and, collections are much easier than on the  coast."  ���������a ���������...  ,' Ashford, The Murderer.  a  George Frederick Ashford, who murdered his, wife and daughter at Vancouver two weeks ago, becomes insane  at intervals, i It appears that he shot  him.self in the head when he attempted  suicide at the time of the' murder, and  it has since been discovered'that one  of the bullets had fractured his skull to  such an extent that brain matter is  oozing from the wound. In all probability he will grow worse until death  relieves him. 'This would be a more  merciful fate than the gallows and less  of shame for his relatives. It, is said  that Ashford belongs to the aristocracy, that his real name is Flowers,  and that. he is brother to an English  marchioness.
