He relerred ..gracefully to  the reniiiikiible 'piogYess-'nrid growth  of Revelstoke aniLcOn'lrusted the large  building in whichrhe now was with  ��������� thesmnllei ones of nearly thiee years  ago'when he first made friends with a  Revelstoke audience: and ho hoped the  town -would continue fo prosper as  rapidly and speedily as since then it  -had. . Touching on the policy,.'of (he  government"which lie supported, he  shewed that the blue .ruin predictions  of its opponents after last, election had  not conn1 true, and produced eloquent'  figure's on the expansion of'trade.to  prove the case'. Tie showed the loyalty  of the party lo I ho imperial ..spintr  "niiimaliiur all parts of onr Anglo-Saxon'  oinp'uehv its efforts in securing (lie  abrogation of the Belgium an'd.German  most.''favored nation treaties.'"and the  perferoiitial tariff to -Great* 'Britain's  imports.

'He defended the  increased'expenflitnres- of the 'govern-'  ment. o'n the grounds of increased'development of (he country. ITe spoke  wilh pride of the ' 'wonderful and  masterful handling of the., postal department by Hon. Mi-. ��������� Mulnek who,  while not in a"ny way lessening the.  efficiency of the service hut in mnny  ways bettering it. had reduced a deficit  bi this department of $700,000,(<) $-10,-  000. He referred to 'lhe great, nnd  i.-idieal changes in that department, of  imperial penny postage, * two cent  domestic postage, postal note system,  etc.iiind all those boons given with  less cost to counti y than foi mer ordinary method.  He "next took up the franchise act  showing how the ' goveriinient , bad  redeemed,its promise, done away wjlh  expense of maintaining, separate lists  nnd given every man with a prciviifcial  vote a Dominion vole also'. On >tliu  r.iilwav,policy he. spoke of the onter-  ptise of (lie liberal government ill  securing construction of Crow's Nest  Pass railiViiy^iimLwhiie srury_.il. could  net have been uiulet'lnkon ns a government i-o-ul it had been built under such  regulations as safeguarded the'public  inLere.sIs as never,befoi e. Alluding to  the Coi-bin ehart.'r of last session he  advocafed the admission of that road  in direct competition wilh the C. P. R.  and hoped -if it came up again lhe  people ol TL G. would express (heir  opinions definitely on il. Speaking of  llie"Yukoii administration he said no  specific charges* had been made against,  officials though accusations in plenty  had been made and siid-if charges  substantially made (hoY would be  promptly investigated." He spoke ap-  piovingly of the government's efforts  to administer t hat ��������� district, protect  property nnd enfoice laws.  In conclusion he understood some  gentlemen had several local questions  to bring to his notice and he would be  pleased to hear them and- reply. He  resumed his seat with hearty applause  and the chairman introduced Mr.  Brewster who would speak on Upper  Columbia river improvement.  Mr. Brewster in a few well put  remarks showed the development, and  mining progress of Big^Bend, how it  had got past tlie pack-train and row-  boat stage and thought government  should undertake improvements allow  ing steameis to make regular trips to  LaPiute. Tn reply to Mr. Boslock as  to ivlmt the govi'i'iimetit was  expected to do, . Mr. Brewster replied  to lipijL have engineers report of .work  necessary to ihnke river- navigable to  Xii poi to and the north, ������������������py  Mr. Ilaig, called on to speak* to pro-,  vincial 'administration of Dominion1  lands in railway belt, referred to the  compulsory purchase of, surface rights  in the belt, the optional purchase outside, .it. He contrasted the survey  systems of the two governments and  spoke favorably of a motion by Mr.  Deane, M. P. P., in the legi.slature of  Ii. C. asking the local government to  negotiate foi a change to allow B. C.  laws rimJjiJJio-bcirf He touched on  the Farwell dispute asking if the government had assumed the hind granted  that gentleman iind risking'for infoi-  inalion on the position of things regarding it as unsettled squatters claims  should he adjusted.  Mr. Nettle handled the 'subject of  ii readjustment of federal represeii-  lal-ion so iis lo secure a uienibei for  Knot eii ay at the next election 'in an  able niannei". He showed by figures  the enormous size ot-Mr. Bostoekjs  constituency, by diversity of its  interests and population that it- was  deserving of notice and contrasted- its  claims with that'of Victoria city which  had turn 'members. He hoped the  Liberal government would Iind" itself  able to. meet the request of Kcloteiiay,  and though other divisions would also  ask for representalion, that it's claims  would be recognized as more .powerful  and well founded.  Mr. J. Abrahaiiison asked Mr.  Bollock's"attention to the matter of  Big Bejid mails'and urged for a service  of two trips a month' in summer, once  a month in winter. The camps growth  required this aid to developiuent'and  he hoped tlie member could biing bis  influence,lo hear on the department to  secure it. . 'i *  Messrs. II. L."Lovering andf'H. A.  Brown spoke briefly on the advisability  of a Canadian mint branch in B.C.,  the former bringing down the house  with a request for its location in Revelstoke. , 7 ��������� ,  n OUTer subji-cls brought up wore the  rate of wages' on the river bank, a  let lei: of P. R. Peterson's asking' for  his long lost title deeds, andyi request'  or a central post office. ^y:^^-  In reply to these matters Mr.  Bosloclc asked Mr. Brewster to explain  if he meant, impi ovement. of river  above canyon or right through, gut hei-  ing lhe latter from that gentleman's  .remarks. 'Mr. Brewster"'1 aiis~vvering  "right through to Revelstoke.'' Mr.  Boslock said he did not favor present  system of outlay and would recommend a luni}i^simi'"for- what hnprove-  uients were thought- necessary, lie  hail tned .to-.effect, changes in belt  hinds administration, and though uti-  successful except in degree ..(see recent  settlement), hoped the "attention expected to begiveriit by lhe1 provincial  government mignl result in workable  arrangement. He had no definite in-  foimillion on Farwell mallei would  communicate exact nature of affairs  when "che reached Ottawa. He  sympathized very much with general  desire to definitely end this dispute.  None knew v bet ter than he' of the  enoii'noussize, importance of industries  and arduousness in representing, such  a district as he had the honor to he  member .for. , He thought-it.-Jikel>L  there might be..a readjustment and  though other section's, would work to  secure1 representation for them he  greed   with   speaker^thut Kootenay  FATAL ACCIDENT.  Vicar of St.  Peter's  Church Fatally  Injured-by t Train.   .  ' It is impossible almost lo describe  the shock the- public of Kevelstoke got.  yesleiday when word was .received of  the sad accident to Rev. Frank' A.  Ford rector of St. Peters church Revelstoke.   A thrill of  Uiiin   was felt all  *-) W  over the town and (hewordsand wen  tears of grief'were many and spontaneous. The scene- at Revelstoke  Station when No. 1, pulled in'Friday  will  not' soon   be  forgotten   by   those  O I  who saw the leverend gentleman  carried from the vehicle of his hurl  with bleeding limb and bloodless face.  It was ii pitiful sight. The particulars  of the accident seem lo he'.these.  Leaving hare Tuesday morning to, attend parochial affairs at Beaver he w.rss  returning, home by tiain when he  s'ustainod the. dreadful injuries which  threaten his life. The, tiain stopping  at Albert Canyon he jumped'off with  his usual kindliness nt^ disposition, lo  say,a eheeiy word e>i two to the agents  family, and the tiain was already  beginning Lo move when he attempted  to regain it. He ihst tried for a near'  coach but was unable to icacli it for a  crowd on .the: platform; failing there  he rushed for the 'aleeperj sprang for  the. fi-oiit rail, 17*11, and��������� iu 'a moment,  the cruel   wheels of  the   hind   ti ticks,  ,had just clainis which he would riot  fail lo urge and he hoped with success,  As to Big Bend mails, if he could get  the postmaster-general to make a Bia*  Bend trip he had no doubt the desired  service could soon he had, but that  being impossible he would not forget  to make what, representations he could  for an improved ser.vice. He favored  ii brunch of royal mint; explained he  did not endorse cutting wages on government work below other local rates  I aid and while not knowing if Dominion goveriinient were cpiitriliuling  lo river bank work, it' he found they  weie be would expect it to pay usual  wages. However, he had no knowledge  of Dominion goveriinient having anything lo do with the present work. He  certainly would attend lo Mr. Peterson's lequest and hoped this Lit le  question would very soon be .perman-  ' cully settled ns the time given for  settlement, December 31, 1S08, had just  passed. Re the central posh office, he  explained he liad drawn attention of  department, to it on complaints of  present'system,"the department had  sent their inspector who submitted it,  to hoard of trade and thoy had passed  a resolution'advising no change. As  that was a representative body he  assumed,- consequently he had  not, gone further; hut if it was the wish  of his constituents he would as their  repiosentalive..he only, too glacl to  bring any memorial expressing public  opinion on the matter before the de*  pattinent.���������(Loud applause.)

One  leg was crushen almost in two anel he  was bruised in many places. He was  at once placed on the train, now signalled to stop, and all .speed made to Revelstoke whe-re he,'was transferred immediately to the, hospital. There, he is  reported to lie veiy weak, and the  'doctors iire waiting a* suitable opportunity, to amputate Lhe limb. They  greatly fear he will not sin vivo it,' but  all Re\ elstoki is hoping fervently that  he will, anti"while everybody fears lhe  wni'si, they refuse alum.si to listen to1  its pi-cdiabi'.ily so 'earnesily aie they  affected. - . ' *  Mr. Sibbald's Dismissal.  ���������B, ,  The adjourned debate was then  taken up, on the following motion of  Mr. Elicits: That an, order of the  house be granted i'or ''copies ' of1 all  correspondence between the government'1 or any member thereof, and  John D. .Sibbald, gold commissioner,  Revelstoke, touching the hitter's dismissal, and a resolution, passed by the*,  citizens of Revelstoke'in mats meeting on the 7th inst., protesting against  Mr. Sibbald's disinUsal.  Mr. Kellie objected to ii statement in,  the resolution that a mass meeting  had bciflij. held in Revelstoke, saying  that, whereas such meetings in that<.  E-?W!i were generally attended by fiom  100 lo 300 people, on this occasion  there weie only-J2 who suppoi led the  motion condemning Mr. Sibbald's dis-  .Jifissal. Mr. Kellie* stated (hat in his  opinion Mr. Sibhalci had, proved himself .unqualified for tlie' position of  golU commissioner and a lejiort could  be obtained fi om an engineei to support the statement.  o Col. Baker said'lhat Ihe motion simply called for the correspondence dealing with the subject and lhat was  needed'to cnable'ineiubers to form a  judgement on the matter. '       ���������<    ,  ' Mrl Kellie said he had ho objection  to lhe resolution being .adopted, and  after Mr. Eberts had said the meeting  jitJUwel^toke was a mass meeting and  (hat Intel lie would mo've for a coin-  niillee, the resolution was adopted.���������  Victoria Times.

With a hideous  ' yell Wayne, suddenly paralyzed" with  fear, screamed:  ' 'Save mcj_JMaxwell, Maxwell, save  me!" MuxvvelTwas already clinging to  the bank, but he turned to the river  again and saw tho sergeant, so stricken  with horror that he was utterly unable  to ,ieach the shore. Two strokes bore  the youngster tothc sinking man's side.  OMaxwcll caught him with his left hand  and grasped 4,the belt about his waist.  With all his strength he drew Wayne to  tho bank and dragged him ashore, literally out of the jaws of a huge crocodile.  Then auotneryellof agony arose from  tho river. The great reptile, disappointed at its first attempt, had darted about.  'Its jaws opened' once more' and closed.  The next moment, save for a reddish  tinge on the water, the -river flowed on  as before, and Roberts had 'disappeared.  Wayne was weak ns a child from  shock aud sobbed hysterically, implor-':  ing young M-ixwell not to leave him. In  the collapse Gf his nerves ho himself unloosened (he belt of gold and gave it to  tho other and poured out, with a flood  ' of tears, his confession, telling how the1  dead man and he, knowing somehow of  Maxwell's mission, had left  tlio camp  and lain in wait for-him.

At early inorning tbe "young pioneer  told his stoiy in the'^conimacdiug officer's tent, giving him the belt with tho  money intact, and as the ofiicer shook  hands and congratulated him Maxwell  saluled and said with a triumphant  smile:  *"If yon can trust mo again, sir, I  shall be glad to complete n.y mission."  --P.
