' - ' v  ���������     To Mr. SS'clls:     Was  in   cupola at  - time of accident.     Train svas running  .s'osver than usual, being on time.  R. A. Moscrop stated: Am employ-  . ed as engineer on Canadian Pacific.  Was in charge of engine 100G, first  No. 1, on April 29th. Received orders  (produced) from Conductor Anderson.  Order' meant to run us first section  No. I iind display signals for second  section. According to this order this  was the superior train and had com-  pl- te right to track. Was running on  time: Accident took place at 19.15 as  looked at watch at mile board and had  about a minute to make Downie.  .Reckoned striking Dosvnie a few  seconds behind time. Did not remember anything about wreck. Did  not hear freight train coming. Probably sasv it coming but had no  a-ecollection of it. Did not know  freight train svas on road and not  supposed to knosv.  To Mr. McCarter: Order issued  -svas usual one, and mine being superior train svas not supposed to know  -of another train on road.  On Mr. McCrum   being  called   Mr.  McCarter stated  svhile   Mr.   McCrum  -svas willing to  tell   all   he   knesv   he  ,-wou'd object to  his   being  compelled  -to gis-e evidence  on   the  ground that  any evidence given   might afterwards  he   used   to   incriminate   him.      He  ���������would take the mine objection   to ihe  evidence  of all   connected   svith   the  cress- of that train.  W. H. Elson, trainmaster, stated-  The authority for train No. 1 was the  schedule authorised by the time-card,  (produced.) No. 1 as in this case may  -be run in section.*.. The authority for  this must be issued by the despatcher,  aa in this case svhere he ordered  engines 1000 and 943 to run as first  and second No. 1 from Revelstoke to  Kamloopi. The authority for No. 1  to move was the time-card and first  section would display green signal for  second section. Second section  would receive the oiderand follow.  Rule 91 provided second section of No.  1 could not follow the first section  within 20 mins., provided first section  was carrying passengers. If it waa  necessary for second No. J to run late  an order would be issued to the  second section   to   run   late   and all  trains afl'ected svould receive, copy of  order. Form 31 (produced) was issued  to'authorise-first- section to carry  green signals, and affected engines  J006 and 943 of the 'first and second  sections of No.' 1 'only. No. J svas  authorised by time-card and all, inferior trains ivcre bound to clear her  time. 'All inferior trains coming ,east  svould clear. No. 1's time'by five  minutes and it would be necessary to  do,so svith the second, section if the  section had an order to run late on a  schedule'issued by ' the despatcher.  In this instance second section No. 1  had order to run late, and all trains  affected by that order,had a.copy of it.  To Mr. McCarter: The-'freight  train would have to lie over, two  hours for second section No. 1 unless  it had an order.  To foreman:   No. 1 is due at Griflin  Luke at 19.07 and Downie at 19.16.  'J. McCrum said:. Am   freight conductor for Canadian Pacific.     Was in  charge of "extra engine 1003 which loft  Kamloops at 9.35, April 29th, Arrived  at Sicamons nt 10.40. ,   Was  there 50  minutes svay freighting  and meeting"  work extra 1008.   Got order  No.  G-l,  form 1,9 giving schedule of second No.  l,f (produced)  also received copy'for  engineer and gave it'to'hini.    Did not  rend it to him.'    Not supposed to read  a, 19 order to  engineer.',. Could  have  got along 'svithout tlie  order,  but it  svas -given ~to  assist  in. getting over  road quicker by "enabling me to knosv  schedule of second No.  1.    It superseded time-card."   When  I read order  (il I knew No. 1 was' in   two  sections  nnd I had no time   on .first   section;  svhicli   I     concluded' svas   on   time.  Stopped for second ror  tsvo  at Bowie  pit to  take ton   Conductor Urquhart  and Brakeman   Berger.    ^Stopped at  Craigellachie for water.      Then' proceeded till   accident, occurred.     Did  not speak   to . engineer  after leaving  Sicamous.        Figured ' on ��������� , making  Downie to pass No. 1.     Left Craigellachie from 18.30 to. 18.35., 'When left  Craigellachie-svas satisfied  had  lots of  time to'reach   Downie.,   Distance between Craigellachie mid  Downie. is   8  miles.. After leaving Craigellachie sat  in cupola till struck "���������"short** hill ��������� four  miles     from,   Craigellachie.-      After  starting up hill svere running speed of  about 12 "miles an- hour.      Got  down  frotn cupola and started  ollice  svork,  and   first   intimation  J  'had   matters  were svrong-svas  seeing  through win-  down  a  side  track.     Jumped    from  table got into  cupola to  see -svhere  \  svas and. sasv sve   svere   passing   east  ssvitch  at Dosvnie, .and   imnipdiately  set   air   in     emergency.       Collision  occurred almost ' immediately.     'Was  tlnosvn from cupola to Moor of caboose.  Gut'up and   s\ent abend  and    found  engines   1003   and   1000   had     met.  SSatch     showed     19.13.,      Collision  occurred   ten   telegraph   poles  east of  ���������Downie on   main  line.     Would take  tss-o to three minutes to go from   svest  switch at Dosvnie  to  where  collision  occurred. '  Had   to  be  in at 19.11 to  clear.     Brakeman Richardson was on  top   of   train   coming   into   Downie.  Considered we ought to get to Dosvnie  svithout   Magging.   *��������� Engineer  should  svhistle at mileboard, but did not hear  it.     When   engineer  whistles   he is  supposed to get signal and if  he does  not get signal from conductor to  proceed he must  stop.    Would   consider  rule   9SE   applied    here.       Consider  orders issued allright to clear No. 1.  To Mr. Lewis: Had made up my  mind to clear No. I at Downie but did  not tell engineer. As engineer had  copy of order expected him to stop  there. ,,  Mr. Lewis: You svere in full charge.  How was the engineer to knosv he had  to stop if you did not tell him ?  Witness: The engineer laid the  time-card and had control of the  power.  To Mr. McCarter: The engineer  knows what he can do svith his engine  and it is his duty to stop if he gets no  signal to proceed. Engineer is supposed to read order to head brakeman  and conductor to rear brakeman.  To Mr. Lewis: If the engineer does  not stop the course is to use the  emergency air brake or signal ��������� the  engineer by hand or lamp.  Dr. Sutherland stated : Examined  bodies of deceased.

Impression-I took from order svas it  svas giving me-time on -No. 1. Did  not know*she was running in "tsvo  sections. , That is < svhere I made the  error.' My fireman, Lance K. Scott,  understood order as- I did; '" Don't  think I should have shown", head  brakeman order, but think.I told him.  Think-he understood. Either I-or  the fireman told him. Don't remember' whistling coming into" Downie.  Saw the other, engine, 100G, before  striking, and that was all. The form  of order svas correct'. .The only way  lean account for, misunderstanding  order is 'I, did not1 notice the "2nd"  before No. 1,'probably because I had  placed my thumb, on it to' hold' the  order in the.svind." Think we could  have got in to' clear at Downie, but  was. not paying much attention to" it.

This train is not frequently  run in tsvo sections:    Kicked air soon  as sasv other engine coming,  but, got  very little exhaust and. McCrum   had  p.obably made application about same  time.      Been   running" eight years as  engineer, besides firing  nine   or tten  years   previous.      'Received     similar  orders before aniFknesv value of'them.  Did not apply rule 9Si:  to   place  like  Dow-nie.    Dosvnie svas svhere 1 should  have   stopped,   but   having    misread  order did not knosv   I   had   to   stop  there.     The cause of accident svas an  oversight   on   my. part   purely   and  simply by misinterpretation of orders.  W. II. Elson recalled : The orders  svere correct in every way. Mr. Mc-.  Nab's "record as an engineer is very  good. Should class him as a first-  class engineer. .  To Mr. Dickie : Conductor and  engineer are equally responsible.1 Conductor McCrum had decided to make  Downie the meeting point and expected Engineer McNab to go in there as  both had same orders.v The rule about  whistling applied to Downie.  Synopsis of Regulations for Disposing of  Minorals on Dominion Lands in Manl  toba. tho Northwest Torritorios and  the Yukon Territory.3  Mr. Dickie: Were you aware this  rule svas being broken?  Mr. Elson: No, the rule ia generally  observed.  Mr. Dickie':' If the engine had  whistled as required by the rule the  accident wbuld have'been avoided.  In addressing the jury the coroner  ���������aid the ca?e was piety complete and  simple. They had an accident caused  by one of those strange aberrations  resulting in misrepresentation of orders. Train No. 1 was to leave Revelstoke in two sections and the second  section was ses-eral hours late, and  form 19 was issued to train crews advising them the ?econd section was  late and giving them a echeJuIe on  her. Tbe engineer of 1003, by picking  up tbe schedule svith his thumb on  the word "2nd" read the order a.������  meaning No. I. That made all the  difference in tlie svorld. In his mind  there were no two section.���������just the  ordinary No. J, and she was several  honrj late, ->o that instead of meeting  the train at Dosvnie as the conductor  expected, they found the engineer  running on svith the intention of  meeting the train at some point further east.

Edlnon.,   ,  , Thomas A. Edison once told a friend  the story-of his first acquaintance svith  any big sum of money. It'"was svhen  he svas struggling,svith his earlier inventions, and he had about as' clear  an idea of the value of a bank check  as the man in the moon. He liad finally sold his patent on the gold and stock  indicator'to the SS'estern ' Union Tele--  graph company and had called at its  office ,to close the deal. After a few  preliminaries he'was given a check for  ^���������iO^OOO. He eyed it curiously and appeared to be puzzled what to do "vith  IL Observing his'perplexity, General  Lefferts, then president of the Western  Union, told him that if ho would go to  the Bank of America, in Wall street.  be could get the cash on his,check,  "So,I started,",, said Edison,- "after  carefully folding up'the check, and  went toward Wall street. , So uncertain svas ,1 In regard to that jvay of  'doing business that'I'thought while  on the way that if-any man should-  :otue up to nie'andolTer me tsvo crisp,  $1,000 bills forr that piece'of paper I  would give hini the check very quick-  iy." ���������'"'���������.    '��������� ���������      '-,..-,    -'  ��������� On his arrival at the Bank of America .he half tremblingly 'shoved hia  check out to the cashier. The hitter1-  scrutinized it closely, gave him a  piercing glance and ���������s.'iid something  which Edison, .being hard of hearing,  failed '\to'���������, understand.      That- was  'enough.   He svas fully convinced that  his check was not worth $40,000 'and  again thought as he rushed out of the-  bank ,that' any -man svho would give  -him $2,000 for it could "has'e it." "He  hurried back toBthe' office of th'e'West-'  ern Union and said he could'not get'  any money. ' A clerk was sent to the  -���������bank with him to identify him.  "This man," said the' clerk, "Is Mr."  -Thomas A.'Edison," to whose order'the'  check-is drawn."   - \  "      ;    -     *    ,   ',  "Why, certainly,  Mr. ' Edison,"  said"  the cashier.

Silver thimbles are  the best, but for those to whom they  prove too expensive nothing is belter  than thimbles of highly burnished  steel. By a person who gains her living with her needle a steel thimble is  always liked, for it will outlast two or  three of the more expensive silver  ones.  Af-wte  Ware.

I was a very  ambitious housewife and wanted money for some new things for the house,  so I began by embroidering little sacks,  for 'which I charged $1.50. For th������  more elaborate ones I received $2.  SVhite broadcloth coats with large collars brought .1*3, and at the end of a  year the amount footed up to $200.  The work was dainty and fnscinuting,  and my friends and acquaintances  were quick to take advantage of the  opportunity to secure hand wrought  pieces foi- their wee tots. I liou-rbt a  pattern of the size for the age of the  baby and follosved the direction's given  witli it for- the making.

The property is owned by Andy Ciaig and Ed.  Hillninn.  lhc great future before the silver-  lead mines of Biitish Columbia, si hen  , better economic conditions can be  seemed, is evident from the fact that  in tho'Coeur d'Alenes the tonnage of  ore pi educed last year isat 1,252,9-11,  having a gross value of $10,019,375, or  ^8.4S per ton.

IJnder present conditions in this  province miners would not trouble to  locate such low-grade ore, yet with  the superior transportation and  smelting conditions in Idaho fortunes  are m'ade out of it and the tame results will yet be achieved in British  Columbia. -  ters affecting riiihoatling in li: C.  ijMi*.

' Barnes  svas a poor  man,'but obtaining on credit a donkey  named'Moses,'which was valued at a  considerable sum, he imported the ani-'  mal-'and stabled it at the smithy, says^  the Youth's  Companion.    It was  the  first in that region.    One, morning "he"  found the door open arid Moses gone.  He followed a-t'rail to the bank'of the*  river and 'lost it.   The stream was in  flood, and he believed his valuable animal ,svas drowned.    Unless he found  some svay to raise the money, to pay.  for it he'svas a ruined man. '  Two   months   later ,a   trading  scosv  came'dosvn the Hatchee from-Bolivar,"  and on the roof, spread out in the sun,  was the hide of Moses, unmistakable  in Its soft and handsome grays. Barnes'  related his story to the trader and re-  cels-.ed    tho   skin,   which ' had   been  bought at Bolivar from a trader there.  As no white man- svould have shot a  donkey Barnes concluded that the Indians, wiio had'never seen  one,' but  who were then  hunting  on  the,Hat-'  chee, were, the offenders. ���������-  * To trap them he "tried a 'little stratagem.   He organized'!!' sho'otiiig,contest  and offered as'a prize '���������thohanclsomes't  skin,, ever taken on  the  Hatchee,  the  pelt of a beautiful animal."      -   ,'  'a. Chickasaw brave was the winner  of the contest a i>d'claimed the prize,'  Barnes * brought forward . the  skin  of  Moses and spread it on the ground.^   ..  , '"There is your prize," he'.said.   *'  "Me.shoot om! Me shoot.urn!" cried  the winner; running to the skin aiid  pointing to a bullet hole. -Then,lie told  hosv he had been wandering down the!  ris-er bank and had/seen this strange  wild animal, like nothing, he'had" ever,  seen before, breaking through"* the  cane. He had shot it and' sold the  hide at Bolivar. He.svas'deliglited tc>  get it back.'  .This, was what" Barnes' had hoped  'oV. Standing, he addressed,the Chick  asaws.     A'     ���������       --  "My brotheis,", he' said, "you ,1,-jiow  me. I line's! poor, man, butfl'raui a  friend'to the Chickasasv. ,.I iiiip"iu1 his  gun for him, and deal fairly by him.

"Take uni." they said.- "Indian have  only ponies.   Give uni all." -'  "How many?'" asked Barnes.1-'  ' "You say how many."  Barnes appointed an'appraiser, who  selected a number of ponies equal in  value to the donkey. These the blaek-  -mltli sold to his neighbors.  Tbe Indians"gave up their hunt and  went back to their villages, poorer, but  satisfied. They had maintained, for  Uieir tribe at least, some claim'to the  title.

Io Cheshire, England, there are Itg-  tnds of a prophet, one Robert Nixon,  who Is supposed to have lived in the  days of King James I. His fame  ���������prcad, and the king sent for him, according to the story. Nixon was greatly distressed. He'wept and mourned,  ���������ayingthat if he went to London he  ihould be starved. When he arrived at  court the king, having hidden a ring,  asked him to find it. Nixon replied,  "He who hideth can find.",' This greatly struck the monarch, who ordered  him to be kept in tho kitchen so that'  thererinlghtlbe no. fear,���������of ���������h!s_ being  starved. Nixon had a great appetite-  he could manage a leg of mutton at a  ���������ltting���������and he became such a'nuisanw  that one day the cooks locked him in a  closet. Here ho'was forgotten,-and  hia prophecy .came true���������he was starved  to death.- Tbe closet is shown in Hampton Court; but, unfortunately for tha  veracity of the,tale, that portion of the  building was not built' till the reign' of  King William III.  *'-        - To  Save  One'* Bacon. , j'-,  Some think that'the'phrnse "to save  one's bacon" aroie nt the time of the  civil  svars-in  England,  when  housewives In the country hud to take extraordinary precautions to save bacon,'  their, principal   provision,   from   the  greedy uppetite of soldiers.        ,       ���������  ,  ��������� In a slung sense bacon stands for, the  human body, nnd "to save one's bacon" !��������� Just to eacape^Ho that when it,  Is said that a'man has saved his bacon  It refers to himself, ns do the cognate-  expressions,   "Spare   my   bacon", and'  o"SelLone's_bacon.", Thus,in Carlyle's  _"8c"hiller" 'we read, ,"To the kaiser I  aold   my   bacon,- nnd .by   him   good  charge of the whole'Is taken."

'   Sparks are formed by the expansion,  ���������dnder the action of, beat, ,'of ,airl,con-  talned in the minute cells of 'wood, coal  -or other burning substance and also  :by the evolution 'of .gas in the sam������  cells.    When the elastic force of the  imprisoned gas or air is greater than  the tenacity of the 'material can hold'  In check, then the small cells or cavl-,  ties burst, and the flying splinters rise,  as.sparks. J A sharp, crack commonly  accompanies  the  explosion   nnd , con-  tlnues'as hundreds of these cells burst  In rapid succession.    Tlie quick Might  of these burning particles acts as "ii,  _fan to increase the .flame, and  when  the  substance   burns  so   far 'tb.it .r.'o  more  flame is  formed  the  remaining  carbon.ash  is  kept  in.a state of  m-i  'candescence by the,draft of air. When  all the carbon has been consumed the  epark  dies 'out.''as*is 'evident "if"we  watch a falling spark on a dark night.  R1  First Class Meals  At All Hours ?
