About   7   o'ejock   on ' Sunday"  morning, while running down from  Phoenix lighf, engine No.   1333 of  the C. P. B.,jumped  the big curve  about   a    mile   from   Eholt   and  pliinged down the  mountain three  or four hundred feet.   -Leo McAc-  '���������tocker, the engineer, had his skull  badly fractured.'

He siic't'iinpd a blight fracture  of   the skull  and  a double  fracture   of the JeTb   ankle.    Mr.  McWilliams, who lives  in a cabin  near the scene of the accident, although .in  poor health, made fast  time to Eholt and gTive the alarm.  His prompt action  probably saved  another wreck, a facb that  tho C.  P. R, should not overlook.    When  1335 plunged.'down the hill it broke  a rail and  tore up a little of the  track.    The  rapid  action  of  Mr.  McWilliams  enabled  railway men  to reach the scene and fl.ig an ore  train  before it ran into the broken  rail.

The gold-bearing conglomerate  dykes of tho Bear lake and Tacla  lake district have been known of  for many years, having first been  discovered by placer miners thirty  or' forty j-.ears ago. They have  been the objective of several expeditions, into that country and at  one time a creat many claims were  staked hue no - work done.

Black,  The Jeweler, Phoenix.  Departed Glory.  A staff correspondent writes iu  in the Vernon News about a camp  that was a hummer in its day. He  says:  "One time Fairview was a real  western mining camp with a payroll ranging from 500 to 800 men.  The Joe Dandy, the Smuggler., the  Tin Horn, Morning Star,' Stem-  winder, Dominion Consolidated,"  aud others too numerous to mention were names to conjure with.  In all live stamp mills were constructed. Four wero built first���������  the Smuggler,- Tinhorn, Joe Dandy  ancl Strathayr. All of these ran  for varying length of time and  finally shut down. The first three  were'torn down, lo help construct  the fourth, the Steniwinder. . Over  a.million dollars wa:-i spent in developing the last named and ncarl}*  $5,000,000 was spent in developing the camp. .In the early days  from 1S95-1S0D, you would havo  found every kind of a man there,  from the remittance man who had  blown his last chequo in on a  salted claim to the tinhorn gambler  of the frontier, from the mining  expert! "in" from the "Outside"  to the grizzled old prospector'who  had followed the mountains a lifetime,and found nothing. There  were honest men and crookod men  there, and nil were seeking one  thing���������money. Some."made it, but  more lost it, and that is pretty  near tho whole story. With;five  hotels and saloons, whiskey ran  like water, only a-little more  freely. Tho camp never was a  "shoolitig" town, but just the  saino it- was wide op'Ui in every  other sense.       ���������'���������;'���������  Now what is it? A postollice  and an hotel is all that is left.  Harry Jones of the old Golden  Gate is still in, business and Mrs.  McCuddy looks after the postollice.  The sawmills are gone, the stamps  are silent and th'i miners have departed. .All that is left area few  old-timers who, stung with the  I tiro of tlio gold, havo departed  from their evil ways and gone over  to farming..

THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD.   BRITISH COLUMBIA.  TALES BF II TRIP  The Dilapidated Gentleman and  His Many Experiences.  HISTORY REPEATED ITSELF.  How a Justice of the Peace Got What  Was Coming to Him For Making a  False Arrest ���������A Michigan Murder  Mystery.  [Copyright,  By   M.   QUAD.  1909,  by Associated   Literary  Press. J  HE dilapidated gentlenian was  sitting on a park bench in the  sunshine and enjoying his  pipe with great gusto, and as  the interviewer approached he was  greeted with:  "I'm not much on old sayings, but  I wish to remark that history repeats  lueir."  "Just how in this case?"  "Seven or eight years ago. as I was  taking a saunter over the great state  ot Ohio unci was approaching Votings-  town. 1 was nabbetl hy a constable,  rushed before a J. I'. and sent to jail  for three months as a vug. J had  $25 in my pocket, had been at work  for a farmer for weeks and was a vug  in no sense of the term.    I asked for  "TOR   AN ��������� HOL'II   I   MADE   HER TASTE TOE  BITTEK.N-ES8 OK DEATH."  a lawyer to defend me, but was refused. While 1 dug my way out of  the old Jail within a week. I've always  wanted to get even with that J. I'.  After getting out 1 wrote hitn a letter  that 1 would get even."  "Weil?"  "Well, I've got even at" last. Half  on hour ago the worst looking < n  bum J've seen in three years came  along here and struck me for a nick.  We fell tb talking, and hang me if he  didn't turu out to be that same old  J. 1\1 Lost bis wife, lost his home  and all else aud has come down to  tramping. Say. I got up, turned him  around and gave him the boot sis  times, aud now I feel that the matter  is off my mind. Dr. i'arkhurst would  say that 1 ought to have taken him to  ray bosom and forgiven and sent him  back to Ohio with a necklace of  pearl*>. but I'm not doitig business on  that corner.  "J was telling you one time," continued the dilapidated, "uv-at the absorbing interest farmers take in murders and robberies, it is because they  seldom meet up with anything of the  kind personally.. 1 have stayed at  farmhouses where such a thing as a  robbery had not beeu known in fifty  years. 1 told you at the same time  that the general idea of a tramp is  that he must have been a pretty-  wicked fellow at some time in his life,  if he don't own up that he was and  state that he has reformed he's considered as only half a tramp.  "i-'ive years ago this summer I was  touring Michigan.   There's a town up  in   the   northern   part   of   the   state  named   Bad   As.    i'erhaps  there's  a  Wood Ax around there somewhere to  match .t. but rcan't say.   Five miles  from tlie town I struck a farmer who  offered me a certain sum and board to  grub out some stumps,    i went at it.  After supper that night I was asked  euough  ijuestforis  to  prove that  the  family  was curious about me. and  i  promised   that  on  the  next  night  i  would  relate an experience to make  their hair stand up.   That farmer was  a  thrifty man.    He went among his  neighbors nnd repented my words, and  the result was that when night enme  sixteen outsiders had gathered at his  house, at a charge of 10 cents each, to  hear me talk.  Did lie divvy with the  undersigned?   Oh.  no!    He   knew  a  good thing when he saw it.  His Marriage to Lovely Girl.  "When ready to talk I began with  my marriage to n lovely girl and the  happiness that followed for a year.  Then a fiend Incarnate told herthnt  1 lored fourteen other women, nnd  she eloped with him. I found her  tracks In the mud and vowed heaven  that I would never rest until i hnd  bud revenge. For eight long years I  followed the guilty couple, and i was  about to give up in despair when onf  evening I found myself seated directly behind them at a circus perform-  nnce. As they ate peanuts and drank  lemonade I tried to borrow a stiletto  to stab them In the back. No stiletto  wns lo be found.  "When (he show wns out I followed  the couple.

At this point I asked  c -h  one of my audience to lake o  solemn oath not to betray my secret  nor lake nny steps whatever to bring  aie to Justice.   Not one refused to take  Hie oath.   They licked their chops and  were glad to take It, It presaged something   more   bloody   than   they   had  hoped for.

I found  the guilty parties asleep, I tupped  them on  tbe head  wltlr a club and]  awoke them. Then I sat down by tho  bedside and gloated over their fears.  Oh, but I gloated! They wept nnd  prayed and shivered and shook, but I  sat there with the look of a demon  on my face. I prolonged their misery  for hours, and I had my audience so  wrought up that no one breathed.  "I could have battered in the skulls  of my victims with the club or cut  off their heads with the ax, but such  a death would have been too merciful.  After tantalizing them to my heart's  content I carried the man out to the  soap kettle and held him in it. head  downward, until he ceased to kick,  Then came the turn of her who had  been my wife. Heavens, how she  shrieked and prayed, how she������ ran  around the room, how she cried out  lo me that the man had hypnotized  her! I was grim���������grim as the death  I hat must soon be hers. She looked for  just one flicker of mercy in my eyes,  but she looked in vain. For an hour 1  made her taste the bitterness of death,  and then I reached out to seize ber  and make soft soap of her, but heart  disease had carried her off. She was  dead.  " 'And I'm glad of It!' shouted every  soul iu the room as he or she rose up  Robbed House and Fled.  "Well, there wasn't much more to  tell them. I robbed the house nnd  fled far away and had never even  been suspected of the murders. I  asked them to be so kind as to remember their oaths, as I had a strange  prejudice against being hung, and lben  let Ihe farmer lock me Into the barn  for the night. Next day I was arrested, of course. Every one of them had  gone and given me away. Two constables came and loaded me with  chains, and I was takeu to the county  jail. Warrants for murder were sworn  out and the legal authorities at Pilot  Knob, Mo��������� communicated with. That's  where I had laid the scene of the  crime.  ���������'Say, my friend, I was in quod six-  weeks and during that time 245 people were admitted to gaze upon tbe  blood stained demon. Reporters from  three papers interviewed me, and 1  told them six different yarns. I received and entertained and confessed  to five different ministers. No two  confessions were alike. Seven different doctors studied and examined me.  I wasn't going through wftb all this  and living like a tramp, you know.  You bet I wasn't. I bad the bridal  chamber of tbe jail, and 1 bad daiuties  and bouquets to beat the band. It  was my harvest, and I made the most  of it.  "Of course the Missouri officials  were bound to write back after due  investigation that J was a liar, and  of course the time came when I was  turned out of jail. There was general  indignation that I was not a fiendish  murderer instead of au innocent man.  arid some folks hinted at lynching.  The sheriff fairly kicked me out oi  the jail, and the only friend I had was  the farmer for whom I had started  grubbing stumps. He was waiting  for me nt his gate, and when I came  along he saluted me with:  "'Come right in aud go to work  again, and I'll make your board free  this time.*  " 'But I thought you'd be down on  rue,' I said.

Prospector  Has  Floated Some   Inter*  esting Companies In His Career.  .Piche, the French-Canadian pros,  pector, who was captured by the authorities after a two years' search in all  parts of the continent, has, as has already been shown by the reports in  the daily press, had .a spectacular'career in his long life in the wilds, but  there is one episode in his career that  has not found its way into the daily  papers.  A few years ago the city editor of  an evening newspaper was asked to  send a reporter to a certain address  on John street, Toronto, to receive an  item about on important joint stock  company that was to be formed. He  finally located the place, and found  it to be one of the rather shabby  lodging houses that abound in that  district. Here he found the little  weasel-faced prospector in the company of twelve or fifteen Englishmen  who had come to Canada with their  savings to make a fortune. Piche was  expounding what he called a great  scheme, which the Englishmen were  drinking in with apparent delight.  It was nothing less than to secure  a large reservation on the shores of  the Hudson Bay for the "breeding of  fur-bearing  animals."   The promoter  of  the   scheme    had   his  prospectus  drawn up," and expatiated on the high  price of furs,  and  how in his  wanderings in the  wilds ho had learned  tho secret of rearing beavers and other valuable beasts.   The reporter had  obviously been sent for as a ruse to  convince the stranenrs that his scihorne  was bona fire.   Piche, indeed, seemed  to believe in his own plan, and his  manner  was  so  sincere  that it was  impossible to say whether ho regarded tho other fellows as "suckers" or  not.    However,   the  reporter decided  that his paper did not want to boost  this   "get-rich-quick"    scheme,    and  whether any of tho Englishmen were  persuaded to tempt fortune.in tho frozen north he never learned.    At any  rate, Piche's company never obtained  letters of incorporation.  MEN OF MANY NAMES.  Font  British   Novel   Markets.  It is a curious fact,  and one that  none of the many connected with the  making and  selling of  British  books  will, I think, deny, that while the nation as a whole seems to be fast drifting   toward   protection,    those    who  make  their  living   by   literature  arc-  being asked, for the first time, to consent to the   extreme   cheapening   of  their  wares.

Oddities     of    the     Baptismal  Shown in  Great Britain.  One cannot help sympathizing with  Lieut. Tollemache, who, after groaning for many years under the burdens  of. seven Christian names, containing no fewer than sixty letters, has  at last decided to jettison five of  them and to be known for the future  as plain "Leo de Orellana Tollo-  mache," a designation long enough  surely to satisfy any reasonable man  And yet the gallant lieutenant-was  an enviable person compared with  the other members of his many-  named family, nine of whom share  one - hundred and three Christian  names, among them, ranging - in  number from ten to seventeen, the  latter number being the baptismaJ  dower-of one of his sisters, who, if  she ever has time to sign her full  name, must write "Lyona Decirna  Veronica Esyth Undine Cyssa Hylda  Rowena Viola Adela Thyra Ursula  Ysabel Blanche Lclias Dysart Plan-  tagenet- Tollemache."  That a multiplicity of names is  not the prerogative of the higher  classes was proved a few years ago  when the .infant boy of a Buckinghamshire farmer was presented at  the font with twenty-six Christian  names, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, from Abel  to Yariah and Zechariah, and when  i farm laborer limiueu a list of twenty-one names to the vicar of a church  'ear Tunbridge Wells as the dower of  Ins baby boy.

"So we men laid Jones away In the  free ward o' a leetle horspltal that  half bid Itself shylfke behind a row o'  scraggy palms. Then we men went  off on a hoot, eight o' us.

" 'Guns!' crWs the colonel. 'Did it  take 'em all that time to patch up  three broken ribs?" -  " 'No,' explains Jones. 'They fixed  up them ribs in six weeks, but after  HI got discharged from that spell HI  went inter town on a leetle smootch  aroun', ye know, an' some William  knifes tne.

"Well -e dou't die a bit. At the  end o' a week two natives shouldered"  his'bed an' started for the coast. Ill  an' Ave men went along to guard 'em.  Five paces In the rear more natives  sullenly wrestled with the heavy coffin.  Our orders were to plant him decently  wherever 'e died.un' we determined to  do It. After we had marched a week  the towu came inter sight. By that  time Jones was able to sit up an' take,  ."notice, but when 'e saw tbe town an'  ihe leetle red roof o' the horspltals 'o  started to wave such a frantic welcome with bis hand that a hemorrhage-resulted. We ordered the two  sullen natives _to hustle,'to the frout  with their burden.   But Jones rallied.  " 'It's no use,' says he, grlttin* his  teeth. 'Ye can't bury me in this worn-  out soil. If Hi dou't reach the leetle  borspiiul throw me overboard inter  clean water.' An' we promised. E  seemed to. be sinlcln' again, so 'we  rakes the shortest cut to tbe sea.

With a rich burst o' tropic  oaths they cast it out inter the, water  an' waved their maledictions at the  ring o' expaudin' ripples that marked  Its burial.  " 'Was that for Jones?' asked a voice.

TOWNS ON HOLIDAYS.  Outings in,England Provided by Generous Firms.  A few days ago Swindon was half  depopulated. Twenty-five thousand of  its inhabitants departed for trips to  various seaside places, being conveyed by a couple of dozen special trains  provided by the Great Western Railway. , As most readers are aware",  Swindon is where the works- of the  Great Western ��������� are situated, fully  three-fourths of the population being  dependent upon, the railway company  for their ��������� livelihood. In. addition to  providing the trains, the company  gives the whole of its employes a day's  holiday at its own expense.  The Great Eastern Railway, too, not  only, give their employes at the Stratford works���������numbering 5,000���������free  passes for themselves, wives, and children, and run special trains for their  convenience to such places as Yarmouth, Clacton, Southend and Lowestoft, but they also pay the men for  their holiday. The Great Eastern "annual" usually means that Stratford  is like a deserted town for seven  days.  Just before the Swindon exodus, the  famous firm of Cadbury Bros., Ltd.,  of Bournville, provided a clay's entertainment and sport for their thousands of employes. Messrs. Cadbury  of course, are, like Messrs. Lover, of  Port Sunlight, as famous for the benefits they have conferred upon their  workpeople as-they are for their respective manufactures. -A notable feature of the Cadbury entertainment was  the reproduction of a pastoral play,  "Sherwood's Queen," in the beautiful  grounds attached to the works. It is  interesting to note in connection with  this play that all the dresses and the  whole make-up, including armor, etc.,  were made on Messrs. Cadbury's  premises.  Mention of Messrs. Lever reminds  us that the employes at Port Sunlight  are given a free holiday. On more  than one occasion the workpeople have  been able to visit, the Continent, notably when 2,000 of them visited the  Paris Exhibition in 1900, at a cost of  ^?5,'000, and four years ago, when all  the employes who. had attained the  age of twenty were given an opportunity of visiting the Belgian Exhibition at Liege.  Last year the famous cycle firm  of Humber sent 2,000 of their workpeople from Coventry tp Llandudno  for a day, while fifteen trains were  employed to carry the thousands of  Messrs. Bass' employes from Burton  to Liverpool and New Brighton- in  July last year. ' ,  Everything is carried out on a free  and generous scale by the great firm  of Bass when their employes go for  their outing. Their usual plan "is to  buy up foi the day the whole of the  amusements of the place visited, in  addition to which everyone is insured  against railway accident for ������100 or  ������200. This mammoth excursion usually costs Messrs. Bass about ������15,000..  ���������London Tit-Bits.  Proposed to by Beaconsfield.  The recent death of Don Carlos recalls the fact that Lady Cardigan,  whose reminiscences will shortly be  published, was at one time engaged  to his cousin, but the match was  broken off, and she afterwards married the Earl of Cardigan, who led  the charge of the Light Brigade at  Balaclava, and who died just over 40  years ago. His widow ultimately married the Count de Lancastre, who died  14 yearns ago. Lady Cardigan recalls  that Lord Beaconsfield, whose first  wife was not long dead, proposed to  her at the same time as Count de  Lancastre, as well as the fact that  when the Earl of Cardigan died Lord  Barrington wagered her five pounds  that she would be married again in  five years. He only just lost. Lady  Cardigan's recollections go back to the  time when, as a child of five, she attended a ball at St. James' Palace  given by William' IV., and, being  missed, was eventually discovered, to  the horror of the startled attendants,  curled up in the King's chair.- fast  asleep.  Judged by the Title.  Mr. Harry M. Vernon, the author  of that clever curtain-raiser, "The  Deputy Sheriff," which is attracting  so many people to the- Garrick Theatre, told the writer "a curious story  concerning it the other day. It was  first offered to one of the chiefs of the  staff of an extensive music-hall tour,  who said, before even glancing at the  contents. "I don't like the title of  this." "He offered it back to mo,"  said Mr. Vernon, "and I suggested  that he would be more impressed  should he deign to read the play. He  replied that he would look at it when  he had time, and after waiting some  weeks, I called to ask it he had come  to any decision regarding it. 'There's  no use my reading it, the title don't  strike me. I can always go by that.'  However, I left the play with him  for another week or two, and then, as  he had not read it, I took it away."  NERVOOSJISORDERS  Promptly Cured by the Use of  Dr. Williams' PinK Pills.  If your 'hand trembles or i3 unsteady, remember that this is a sure  and early sign of your nervous system being-at fault. The mischief  may develop slowly to a worse  stage. You feel unaccountably weak  and weary after exertion; you !oose  flesh; you turn against food and suffer palpitations and indigestion after  eating. At times you are intensely  irritable, greatly depressed and easily  worried. Sometimes sharp pains  shoot down your spine and legs and  probably neuralgia robs you of your  ���������sleep at night. These are some of  the troubles that indicate the presence of nervous disorders. If these  troubles are neglected they result in  complete nervous collapse and possibly paralysis,. Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills have won a great reputation by  curing all forms of nervous disease.  The nervous system depends entirely  upon the blood supply for nourishment; when the blood is thin and  weak the nerves are affected as described. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  actually increase the supply of good  red blood, feed, strengthen and tone  the nerves, enable them to perform  their functions and dispel all signs  of a breakdown.      ^  Mrs. Jas. .11. Ward, Lord's Cove,  N.B., says; "About two years ago I  suffered so much from nervous prostration that I was little better than  a helpless wreck. I suffered from  headaches and a constant feeling of  dizziness. The least unusual move  would startle me and set my heart  palpitating violently. I-.-had little or  no appetite, and grew so weak that I  was hardly able to drag myself about,  ancl could not do my housework.' In  every way I was in a deplorable condition. As the medicine I had been  taking seemed to do me no good, my  husband got a" supply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I had only been  taking the PiLIs for a couple of weeks,  when I seemed to feel somewhat better, and this encouraged me to continue the treatment. From that on  my strength gradually but surely returned, and in the course of a few  more weeks I was once more a well  woman, able to clo my own housework  and feeling better than I had done for  years. I have since remained well  and feel that I owe my good health to  the healing powers of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills."  Every other weak, sickly, worn  out, nervous person should follow  the example of Mrs. Ward and'give  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial.  These' Pills will send new blood  coursing through the veins and bring  brightness and energy to the weak  and desyondent.

How a British Force Was Ambushed  at Kuta,  in  Nigeria.  How a British missionary made a  hazardous journey in face of a tornado  to a scene of-an attack on a British  force, who were ambushed, is told in  the details now to hand.of the attack  on a British force in Nigeria. The  first news came to Minna, a place  on'the line of the Baro Kano Railway,  about 30.miles from the scene of the  occurrence, stating that a British force  had been cut up at Gussoro by the  difficult and truculent Guari- people.  This'account, which was hurriedly  written by the doctor, who was himself wounded, merely stated that the  officer in charge'was missing, together  with a European police officer and a  sergeant,and that the writer was himself wounded. The-Rev. W. P. Low,  who has for some years been working  among the Guaris, happened to be at  Minna when the news came in. He  was hurrying down to the coast on his  way home, having only reached Minna  that day from his station at' Kuta,'  from which place the wounded doctor  had sent his despatch. Mr. Low instantly volunteered to go to Kuta to  render any aid possible to the survivors, and also' to use his influence  with the people. This he did immediately.  Mr. Low spent 12 hours in Kuta,  and, having assured himself of the  loyalty of the townspeople, resumed  his journey to the coast. Picking up  a construction train on the way back,  he just caught his steamer, but was  nearly drowned in a native canoe  when going down the Niger. He met  the punitive force under Maj. Williams, consisting of 150 men, with a  Maxim, on its way to the scene of the  .ambush.' The ill-fa'ted police party had  started from Kuta only a few hours  before it was attacked. In consisted  of Lieut. Vanreneri, Capt. Stone, a  doctor, a European sergeant, and 30  police. Accompanying the force-was,  the Chief of Gussoro. Its object was  to march to Gussoro, and there reinstate the chief, who, for his loyalty to  the British, had been compelled 'to  leave his town. For two 'months  previously .jt was reported that the  Guaris had been making poisoned arrows, and had declared that they  would oppose the return of the chief.  It was not thought that the people  would attack, but as a measure of  precaution, Maj. Williams' force had  been held in readiness at Kuta, in  case of trouble.  When the attack was made, however, the telegraph line was down.  Lieut. Vanrenen had only proceeded  for a few miles when he was completely overwhelmed by a force of  some 600 natives, who surrounded  the party in the thick bush. A deadly nre of poisoned arrows, at short  range, was poured upon the British,  Lieut. Vanrenen being at once killed,  his body falling in the long grass. The  doctor was also wounded by poisoned  * arrows, and 11 police were killed.  Whatever formation was possible was  attempted, but the heavy and well-  directed fire completely disorganized  the remainder of the police, who fled.  Capt Stone, with great gallantry, went  back to try and recover his chief's  body, but was unsuccessful, the -remains being subsequently found by  the punitive force and buried on the  spot. The surviving Europeans managed to find their way back to Kuta  by hiding in the bush in order to  avoid the enemy, who pursued them.  The punitive expedition had some stiff  fighting, but they inflicted severe punishment on the Guaris; and - burnt  their town There were no losses on  the British side. The Gusoro chief  was at first reported killed, but he  succeeded in making good his escape.  The Western Way.  Henry W. Lucy, the famous English journalist, familiarly known as  "Toby, M.P.," under which name he  writes deliciously humorous Parliamentary comment for Punch, and who  was recently rewarded with a Knighthood, tells some rich stories indeed  in his recently published volume of  reminiscences, "Sixty Years in the  Wilderness." He never had any connection with politics, except as a  commentator, but for forty years he  has always had inside knowledge of  everything transpiring or about to  transpire in the House, and he has  known everybody worth knowing. He  writes in delightful anecdotal style of  all the famous men of his day.  He tells us a story of Lord Russell,  of Killowen, who, while on his Canadian tour, congratulated a waiter in  Manitou on the healthiness of the  town.  "I guess it's pretty wal," replied  the waiter.  "When we built a school house nothing would do for some of the citizens  but they must have a cemetery. We  laid it'out and walled it in, but we  had to shoot a man to start it."  "Mauretania" is the all-the-  year-ronnd collar.

Experts upon provincial, political affairs claim that ic is doubtful that even eight Liberals will be  elected upon Nov. 25. Oliver will  need an overcoat after that date.  TnE McBride railway policy has  been placed before the people and  those who can read should bo familiar with tho details by this  time. Southern British Columbia,  especially the Boundary nnd Similkameen districts, are more particularly interested in that portion  of the policy dealing with the  building of the'missing link of  railway between ' Midway and  Nicola,"ho necessary to the'pros-  pcrity and advancement of a large  and valuable portion of the province. In Ihepe districts a few half-  dead pespimisls may place some  small rocks before the car of progress, but the majority of ,the voters will be under McBride'fl flag  during the .battle of- the ballots  three weeks from today.  The Victoria Times, in its grope  for political capital, says that in  the railway policy that the premier  goes to tho country with this  month, districts now represented by Liberal members get as  much consideration as those represented by Conservatives. The  Times endeavors to show that the  object is to win Liberal constituencies from their misguided ways  and Hue them tip in the glorious  light of tho true faith. To accomplish this object tho Times contends that at (he request of the  gov eminent the Canadian Northern  railway is willing to run their line  wherever the most votes can be  gathered in and it is suggested  that Cariboo, Delta, etc., might-  change their polittcal color in order  to grab the railway pie. Sane people do not pay auy attention to  such a plea, born evidently in the  upper stopo of.tho Times editor  when he was short of copy. The  route of the Canadian Northern is  as it is bocause practical surveyors  and railway men find that the line  as projected will obtain the lowest  possible grade and the least mileage. This, coupled with his desire for the welfare of tbe province,  are what McBride. seeks, not vengeance upon his political opponents.  The Times is probably amazed at  the high standard of statesmanship displayed .by the prime minister and  his colleagues and fails  Very little sorting is required as  tho ore 'comes out massive and  clean. The ledges'are 2 to 5 feet  wide as shown in the three shafts.  At No. 1 .shaft there are approximately GO tous of ore taken out and  ready for shipment, At No. 2  shaft there are approximately 300  tons of ore taken out and ready for  shipment. At No.- 3 shaft a few  tons have been taken out.  PRESENT DEVELOPMENT.  Theie are two shifts of men  working at present, with a blacksmith convenient, ore cars and  rails, and the ground prepared to  install a compressor. The tunnel  is now in more, than 225 feet, 5  feet wide and" 8 feet high, ~an'd  shows indications- loi mineral aud  will crosscut three veins before  striking tbe vein shown in No. 1  shaft. - The installation of a compressor would greatly accelerate  and lessen the cost of constructing  thetuun'el.  REMARKS. *  Judging from the amount of ore  shipped from such mines as the  Skylark, Providence, Gold Bug,  Strathmore, Silver Cloud, Elkhorn  and others, all within a radius of  a mile and in the same formation,,  being parallel vefns, tho company  in my " opinion has undoubtedly  one of the most promising mines as  exposed in tho three shafts above  mentioned.

Mining- Engineer's Report.  To the Directors of the Argo Mining:' and Tunnel Co.,. Greenwood. B. C.  Getlkmen' : At your request I  have made a careful examination  of the Starve Out mine and I beg  to submit the following report:    ���������  The Starve Out mine is situated  in Skylark camp near Boundary  creek, in the Greenwood Mining  Division of Yale district, British  Columbia.',  The -property consists of three  mineral claims, the " Starve Out  Fraction," the " Km press Fraction," and the "Mayflower."  ACCESSIBILITY.  The property is reached from- the  City of Greenwood by a good  wagon road and sidewalk. Part  of the property lies "within the  limits of the city. The shipping  point on the C- P. railway is about  750 feet from the mine, as the C.  P. R.' passes the west side of the  property. It is about 2000 feet  distant, opposite and higher up  than the B. C. Copper company's  smelter, and the ore. could be delivered by a bucket tram from the  portal of the tunnel.  pouarATiox,  The formation, or. country roek,  of the district is gray granites.  Tho greenstone varies iu depth.  In many places the granites are  exposed to the surface, forming  bosses.  DEVELOPMENT.  The Starve Out mine is develop  ed by this>e incline shafts, No. 1  SO feet deep : JSTo. 2, 115 feet deep,  and No. 3, 40 feet deep, following  tho veins as nearly as possible.  The property is now being tapped  by a tunnel which will strike the  ore bod}' in No. I. shaft at a distance of 340 feet and a depth of  S15 feet. No. 2 vein would be  struck by the continuation of the  tunnel a hundred feot further at a  tlepth of nearly \l00 feet, find No.  li by continuation of tunnel 300  feet at a depth of about 1,000,feet,  OKAItAC'TEUISTICS  OK VEINS.''  The three veins developed on  the property parallel each other in  an easterly and wedterly direction, pitching southerly, and No.  J and No. 2 are about 100'feet  apart, and No. 3 about 300 fe.it  from No. 2. These being struck  by the tunnel will open up an immense amount of fitopiiig ground,  where the ore can be mined and  handled cheaply.  The ore consists of native silver,  carbonates, galena, iron and copper pyrites in a quartz' gangue,  carrying high values iu gold  and silver. Bomo assays have  been taken and run as high as $90.
