This,  in brief,  is  the story of another tragedy in  the wilds of the  Colville  reservation,   the   details   of which  may  never be made known to the world.  McLaine and Cameron left Okanogan Tuesday  evening,   crossing  the river and disappearing among  the hills of the reservation,    They  were both  ahorseback, armed, aud  had in their possession  four quart  bottles of  whiskey,   according to a  statement of one  who saw  them  leave.

Ambrose was afraid  to leave home,'as he thought McLain wanted to steal his horses or  injure his family, so kept guard  over them until McLain left.  Wheirthe Indian's story was reported in town a crowd of eight or  ten horsemen left to investigate  the matter. A bought eight miles  east of here they found Cameron's  horse tied to a tree. All grass  within reach was eateu .down and  the. animal gave evidence of having been tied there a couple of  days. A search was made in the  vicinity for Cameron's body, but  it was not there. Finally a trail  was found which indicated something had been dragged from the  spot.    It was followed a quarter of  report, thus acting as prosecuting  counsel, judge and jury.    He probably earned his  money during the  period after the hearing as well as  before.    Down  to  April 10th Mr.  Shepley had received $S,000.    It  may be remarked here   that his  firm drew SS.2GG  in  the  previous  year in connection with other government business.    This 'included  a round sum  of  $7,500 for professional  services in connection with  the Grand Trunk Pacific contract.  Also it may be said that  this professional child  of fortune is  now  acting as counsel  for the government in the Bell   Telephone in-"  quiry.    There is a minister of justice,  a solicitor-general, a deputy  minister of  justice,   and   two or  three legal  advisers to the department of railways, but they cannot  get   along   without Mr.   Shepley,    '  even though he comes high.  Mr. Tilley, Mr. Shepley's a=sist-  ant, got S50 a day and expenses,  and had drawn 34,000 when last  heard from. Mr. Dawson, principal actuary, was allowed $50 a day  and expenses, and had two assistants at $20 a day and expenses.  Altogether these actuaries received  $7,743. SO.

A deputation waited on  him with the request; that in the  future, whenever he used such  terms, he would explain them.  On the following Sunday he used  the term hyperbole, aud added :  "As agreed on, I beg to explain  the word. Were I to say that at  this moment the whole of my congregation are sound asleep it would  be hyperbole, but if I say one-half  tire asleep, that is no hyperbole,  but; the, truth.'' ,  The. next day the deputation  again called to say that; the minister need not; explain technical  terms.

A considerable time  after the selection of a candidate  was devoted organization work  which should have been continuous, and the actual work of the  campaign was slighted, The local  and district Conservative associations should meet at- an early date  and have a thorough organization  before the campaign is started.  The principal  evidence for  the  prosecution has been   heard in the  Haywood case at Boise Idaho, and  it looks as if the prosecution .hopes  to obtain a verdict on the evidence  of Orchard  alone.    The corobora-  tive evidence so far  does  not appear to implicate FTaywood  in any  way.    Thc rebuttal   evidence will  shortly be given,   and  it  is said  startling revelations will be made  implicating many prominent men in  mining and ollicial life  in the west  in a great conspiracy  to down organized labor.    All the details  of  the murders by  the troops  under  Adjutant-General Hell in Colorado  will be brought  out, and  many of  the outrages for which  the W. V.  M.   have   been   blamed,   will   be  brought home to the guilty parties���������the J'inkertons, the Citizens'  Alliance   and . the military.    The  trial   promises to he the best thing  that has happened  for organized  labor in a century, if Haywood  is  proved innocent.    There is probably not a thinking  man   in  the  United States or Canada who is not  familiar with the Orchard  confession.    If   Haywood  is not found  guilty, it will be bad for the mine  owners of Colorada and Idaho, and  worse for the Pinkertons. 'Jf he is  W- Uvo-  ficli!    Don't von understand?

No  newspaper    representatives    were  present, but soon   news of the bit  of unwritten hist6ry  narrated   by  Captain Coghlan, and of its reception, leaked out.    Then   there was  a fuss.    The German ambassador  at Washington called on Secretary  I lay.    Explanations  were hinted  at.    The navy department authorities had to do some thinking about  printer, poet and journalist, caused  untold trouble for the printers the  past week, and as the result of one  of his pipe dreams the Herald stall'  has been subjected to deep humiliation.    Last Thursday, after completing arrangements   for  leaving  town, MacSwain (unknown  to the  balance   of the   staff)   inserted  a  baseball challenge  in   the  Herald  columns so sweeping in'its character that one would be imbued with |  the idea  that,   the   printers  must!  have a baseball  team  that  would j  give the Chicago cubs a hard chase-  for the pennant. After reading this  elViiKion a  number  . r citizens decided to see if the printers  could  make good,  and  as  a  result   we'  have been swamped   with  challen-l  jges from the C. I*.

All challenges have been  declined  and the printers wish it distinctly  understood that they  repudiate all  responsibility for the challenge and  henceforth  refer all aspirants for  baseball honors to 'Mr. MacSwain,  who is at present cooling his fevered brow on the shores of Moyie  lake.    In   future all   communications of this character should   be  addressed   to J.

The writ claims damages against  the minister for tbe alleged slandering  of   Mr.    Agncw,   who  is a  prominent member of tho Methodist; church, and   until a'short time  since,   was superintendent' or the  Sunday  school.     There has  been  ill-feeling existing between the parties for a long time, and it culminated a short timo  since,   whe/fthe  pastor, in the presence of  the Sunday school  board,   demanded   Mr.  Agnew's   resignation   as  superintendent of the Sabbath school. The  latter  had   been   an  indefatigable  worker in connection with the Sun-  strong  and  multiplying very rapidly.    Having been:protected from  the trappers for the,past ten years,  they are becoming very tame, and  do not seem to mind a,casual onlooker', although they- do most of  their work by moonlight.  Ono   night   these    beavers   cut  down  52  trees,   according  to  the  Rev.   Mr. Christinas, who'rakes a  great deal of interest' in  his little  tenants and  watches carefully to  see that no harm comes  to  them.  These beavers arc very energetic,  and have no use for one of their  number who refuses to do his share  of the work.    When an idle member of |,lus flock is  noticed the others drive him away to live in solitude, and such a beaver  found by  a trapper is   known   as a bachelor.  h  takes  tlm  beavers  but a short  world with its eyes wide open. The  young ones live with their parents  for two years, .aud   then   they aro  made to shift for themselves.    The  full grown beaver measures about  two feet in length, with a tail some  ten inches long, which  he can use  as a spade or trowel, as  well as a  paddle.     The average age  is   iy  years,  although some have been  known to be as old as 20, but such  cases are said   to  be rare.

Mr. Agncw resigned the  position of superintendent, but his  resignation was accepted with regret by his fellow ollicers.  Messrs. Macdonalcl & Winn have  appeared for Mr. Knox  in  answer  to the writ,   while W. J. Xclson is  prosecuting the action on behalf of  Mr. Agncw.  p-  The writ does  not disclose the  alleged slanders for which damages  are sought,  and   the  solicitors  do  not at present seem desirous of giving publicity  to  the   matter.     It  has been  learned,   however,  that  Mr. Knox is alleged to have stated  at the board meeting at  which he  demanded  Mr.   Agnew's   resignation, that he had  heard  some reports  respecting Mr. Agnew, and,  therefore, he felt-it his duty,to demand his resignation  as  superintendent of the Sunday school. The  reverend gentleman did  not state  at the meeting what these  reports  were, but after it was  over, in the  presence   of  a   number   who   remained,   lie  made  several specific  charges reflecting on Mr.   Agnew's  business      transactions.    .Among  other things, he accused  Mr.   Agncw of selling goods on  Sunday,  apparently in breach of the Lord's  Day act, and that ho sold  tobacco  to minors and others, and it is alleged that he made other like statements, reflecting more  or  less  on  Mr. Agnew.  Mr.   Agnew's son   is  alleged to  have stated that other more serious  statements have been   made by thc  minister,   which  rcllected  on   his  father's business and  private chur-  ;actcr,  and  that his father would  J" ! not quietly permit such statements  'to   go   unchallenged,- even   when  made by the pastor or thc Methodist church.  The full particulars of the claim  j will  probably  be   tiled  in   a  few  ! days.    The action will be  tried at  next sittings of thc  court  here in  October.    The trial will, no doubt,  ho of considerable interest to the  public��������� Kosslaiid Miner.  the tree is quickly cut up into  lengths for houses, dams or food, as  may bo required. The house of  the beaver is built on the bank of  the river, with its entrance under  water. Once having built the entrance, the rest of the house is  started, the whole colony working  at the house until it is finished,  and when completed it is warm,  dvy and cosy.  Although it is impossible for the  beavers to live for long miter the  water, the entrance is built for a  distance under the water, and then  there is a lung tunnel" connecting  the   house   with   tho   water.

A rather curious incident occurred in fjhe'police court on Friday, says, tbe Rossland Miner. A
couple of vagrants, who had Ijpen
caught begging on the streets,
were before the court and thc
magistrate, said to one who gave
the name of Kelly : "'You are
charged before nie with being a
loose, idle and disorderly person ;
in that you have been begging oin
the public street without a license "
At this juncture Chief of Police
Long interrupted and, showed thc
magistrate a card he had taken

ings of a deaf mute. It was headed
"Help the speechless." After
reading the card the magistrate!
said: " The. poor man is deaf and
speechless and cannot plead vocally
to the chargw." "Xo, no," said
Kelly, who is a cripple, having
only one arm, "I am neither deaf
nor dumb, I" simply carry those
cards in my pocket." If, was evident that Kelly used the cards at
times to impose on the public. After a lecture, by the magistrate the
prisoner was given his liberty, provided he would leave the' city,
which he did shortly after he was
released from custody.

The inviolable Rule
Joseph ir. Choat-e, the famous,
lawyer, adverted at a dinner iu
Xew York lo the Knglish club rule
that no club servant may ever on
any account be tipped.
" When Hived in London," said
Mr. Ohoate, " [ heard of an amusing incident based'upon this rule.
���'There was a certain club which
did not- permit gambling, but four
members,  at a loss  one  night  for
oil'' and smash things generally, is
founded on a curious, popular misapprehension. .Many explosives
possessing the most deadly potentialities, may be handled and
knocked about with the greatest
unconcern, may be stirred up with
red-hot pokers, set on fire, shot
out of a gun, all without explosion
unless a proper agent be employed."

something of that sort.
"So they sought out a secluded
corner and fell to. Soon, though,
tihey noticed one of the club waiters hovering around them, casting
stern and vicious glances at their
table. Tfe was a veteran waiter, a
club land mark, and they grew a
liftle alarmed. He might- tell.
Finally they called the man over,
���' 'Joseph.' " said the general,
; what you suspect is true. We
are gambling. And we want you
to keep mum. After all, Joseph,
you have been with the club a good
while, and I don't suppose this is
the first time you have seen the
rules broken.'
" ' General,' said Joseph quietly,

years, and I have seen, sir, every
rule broken but one.'
������ -And what one is that?"
"' Thc one, sir, against tipping
