THE VIGTORIADISiSTER.  BfiEAKDOWM    Of   A BRIDGE AND  LOSS OF MANY LIVES.  Full Details of the Accident.  (Special to The Miner)  Among the arrangements for the celebration of the Queen's Birthday was  combined Naval ' and Military sham  fight, in which all the vessels of H. M.  Navy now in port would take part ns  well as the Imperial Forces stationed  at Esquimau and the local volunteer*  and militia. No such spectacle had  ever been seen before and crowds of  people were attracted from all parts.   .  About noon people began to stream  out of the city towards Point Macaulay  which lies just midway between Victoria and Esquimalt harbors and numbers availed themselves of the train-  cars going to Esquimalt. Ac 2.30 one  of these cars which are extremely largt  left Government street crowded with  passengers. Itis estimated that there  were fully 100 people on it at the time.  . The tramline after crossing the Rock  Bay bridge proceeds along Work  street and then crosses the 'deep inlet  known us the Victoria Arm by the  Point Elliue bridge. This structuie  was erected many years ago by ���������'he  San Fraucisco Bridge Company and  was of the kind known, as a composite  truss bridge. The trusses, huge  masses of wood and iron stood up 20 ft  and more above the roadway.  . As soon as the fated car reached the  centre of the bridge the whole central  span prohahly 150 feet collapsed, precipitating the car and its occupants into  the deep water-below . Unfortunately  besides the car their were several  carriages as well as some pedestrians  on the bridge. All were at once hurled  into the Arm while the huge timbers  and iron beams and ties of the trusses  came crashing about them.'  It is believed that over 200 people  were in the catastrophe and by the  latest accounts 55 dead bodies have so  far actually been recovered although  it is feared that there may have been  more. Owing to the fact that many  of the victims were visitors to Victoria  the work of indentitlcation is slow..  So far the bodies of the following  have been recovered and indentitied:  Mrs. J. A Troutt, Seattle; Misses Sophia and Alice Smith, J. T. Patterson.  Victoria; Miss Grace Elford, Mrs. F,  Adams and son Fred, Mrs. W. Hether-  bell, Victoria; Mrs. G. A. Woodrow,'  Seattle; Mrs. D.

Crowell  and son aged-10, Victoria; Mrs. Pricely  Minneapolis; Mr. Maratta, tors.Pres-  ton, Seattle; 'Mrs..E. Housen anil son,  Jas. Wilson, (aged'o), Misses Emma  Olsen, Lester, Ann Ke.ise, Flossie  Jackson, Victoria; J. B. Gordon, Vancouver; Geo. Fair and H. Talbot, Vie-  toria;'Miss Sloane, Seattle; .Mr. James  Bossie, T. H.

Holmes, Miss  Sheriff, Victoria; Miss Idtt Gooclacre,  Tacoma; Miss Frost, New Whatcom.  Private telegrams announce ��������� that  Mr. and Mrs. Carmichael the parents  of Mr. Carmichael nssistant to Dr.  Arthur are also among the lost. One  of . the survivors was Canon Paddon  "a" well" knomi~"ancl~highly^re"specied"  clergyman of Victoria. Mr, J. B. Gordon is probably the widest known of  the victims. As-'managerr-of Bradstreets Agency he was a ��������� familiar  figure throughout the province. Only  a week or so ago he was in.Nelson.  A TERRIBLE CYCLONE.  ST.  LOUIS  AND   OTHER   CITIES  IN RUINS,  Houses Blown Down.^Firc mid  Mve "Wires  1 Add to the Horror.  The vast plain which stretches eastwards from the base ot the Rockies  almost to the Atlantic is the playground  of hurricanes. Here rage storms almost  more terrible and destructive than the  wildest gales that ever lashed the salt  seibinto clouds of driving spray."  Probably there never was a more  terrific storm than that which struck St.  Louis ou Wednesday last with the result  that in the- evening the "city was in n  worse .coudition than if it had been battered .for a week by shot and shell.  Hundreds of people were killed, thousands probably are injured.  The storm broke suddenly about five  o'clock in the afternoon, accompanied  by thunder and lightning. In a few  minutes the wind was blowing with a  velocity ot 80 miles' an hour. The streets  were full of people returning from their  work. Men and vehicles were picked up  by thegale and flung hither and thither  like straws. Fourteen fire alarms where  ruug aud in a few minutes the entire city  was panic struck. Toadd to thehorrors all  the overhead wires were flung down into  the seething crowds carrying death with  them.  Many buildings were completely demolished. The Eades' Bridge which  cost three- millions of dollars to build  was destroyed. All the shipping at the  wharves was sunk.  "Every hospital in the city is filled with  victims and there is a lack of nurses and  doctors, while at the morgue a constant  succession   of   bodies is being brought  j in.    On the river numbers of excusion  1 beats    loaded    with   passengers    were  j wrecked.  ! No estimate of the total amount ot loss  ' of life or damage can yet be made. The  ��������� city is in ruins, telegraph wires are des-  i troyed and the utmost confusion prevails.  THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AT EASL0.  The 77th Birthday of Queen Victoria  wns honored at Kaslo on Monday and  Tuesday 25 and 26th. The town was  decorated with Hags, trees etc. Tbe  weather on Monday was nil that could  be desired, with the exception thnt there  wns not enough wind to allow the race  for the Ladies pennant to be sailed and it  was therefoie postponed until Tuesday.

A prize  was given at mi-night to the best  waltzers, lady nud gentleman. Miss  Gallop won the ladies prize, Mr. Elir-  munntrout, the gentleman's.  The basebnll. game in the afternoon  was stopped for a few minutes, owiug to  the heavy wind, blowing und tilling the  eyes of players and spectators with ��������� sand.  Altogether a most enjoynble celebration  was held reflecting great credit upon all  those .having anything to do with the  management.  LOCAL   NEWS.  M-llette  O  F  Corney.  Walker  B  F  O. Coy.

Both sides showed great want  ot practice, neither team having at  any time had ^the whole of the nine in  the field at one time until the match.  For Nelson, Campbell, F. Smith and  -Mclntyre,���������did���������good��������� service,���������Jacobs-  pitched a good game and considering  the state of his hands E. Smith as catcher  did well. Nelson had the best team and  it is to be hoped they will take a tumble  and practice together. The game was  lost from want of combination work and  coaching. Sandon did well and won the  game ou its merits, although at times  the want of practice was shown, they  played ti thoroughly good game. Blackwood pitched the nine innings throughout, but the change to Wi Iron in the 10th  innings, wns a bit of good judgment and  won them the game.  The concluding amusement was the  great Sandon Amateur Minstrels, with  a dunce iu the Olympic Hall afterwards.  The less said about the minstrels the  better. Like the town they come from,  they were pretty rocky. The dance was  enjoyed by a large number, the floor  being in a good condition.  The visitors from Nelson etc left aliout  7.30 nnd that a moro enjoyable and was  never spent in Kaslo before was the  universal verdict. A large number  Btnyed over for the Tuesday  sports.

The  feeling thut the Imperial Government  will not interfere causes dismay."  "Mr. Barnato has closed tbe mines nnd  has discharged the men belonging to the  companies he controls. The, burghers  are. signing a petition to release the  prisoners ou the ground of commercial  and mining interests of tbe country.  "Dr. Leyds declined to allow, me.to  inspect the jail, declaring that, the sanitation, etc., are adequate." *'  Pretoria, May 21.���������-The revised sentences of the Reform prisoners announced  yesterda^have been unfavorably received  and a great revulsion of feeling is evinced  among the Afrikanders. It is delared  by a most independent nud trustworthy  source that President Krugur pre-i.-tt-iit-  ly urged that all the seuiences l<*> imprisonment should be replaced by fiue.**.  For three days he presfed this view. hu<  he was overcome by a m.ijorily of the  Executive Council. It is ieil everywhere  that the Transvaal Government h������3 lost  ii. great opportunity''for 'rjeconeiliution.  and there is a strong feeling iti favor <>f  the reconsideration of the decision as to  the sentences. The fate of the four  leaders,Col. Rhodes and Messrs. Phillips Hammond and Farrar, whose sentences were provisionally commuied to 15  yenrs imprisonment, will be announced  on Monday.

One of the largest mining deals ever  made In this upper country, says the  Vernon News, was brought about, last  week, when Mr. A. H. Craven, representing a company of English capitalists signed papers which gave, him a  working bond on the mineral.claims  owned by the Swan Lake Mining Company. The consideration is $120,000,  $1000 on which is to be paid within a  month,*and the balance by the 15th of  December next if the'company decide  to complete the bond. The group of  seven claims is situated within three  miles of this" city, the property being  a huge deposit of free milling gold  quartz, of low grade, but of practically unlimited quantity. Mr. Craven  states that if he finds an average, value  of $1 per ton he will be well satisfied lo  go abend and complete the purcliiise,  in which case he will have an SO or 100  stamp mill in operation before next  spring.

THE MINER, NELSON, B. C,  SATURDAY, MAY _o,  1896.  BY ELIZABETH PULLEX.  Author  of    "The   Man    from   Aidone."  "Calabian  Sketches," etc.  (C)pyright,  1895.)  Every Monday morning the loiterers la  and about the village store saw Hezekiah  Martin's wagon come down the mountain  road. Then it disappeared hehiiid u clump  of willows, was visible again on the village  street and drew up in front of the storo.  People were eager to buy the green st uff  which was heaped iu that wagon, either  for their own uso or to send to tlie city liy  railroad. But there was no hurrying  Hezekiah; he would make no bargains  until he had put his horse into the shed,  shaken out it liberal supply of grain from  his bug and brought it pail of water from  the well. After making his horse comfortable he wits ready so sell his pinky-  skinned potatoes and jolly round cabbages  and crook-neck squashes���������that appear tlie  misanthropes of their kind, looking over  their shoulders, askance, at their more  evenly developed brethren.  Perhaps there is no shorter way of describing Hezekiah'- relations to the world  than by saying that he was by way of  being a crook-neck squash himself. The  people of East Warsaw (Maine is dotted with the most remote names  in close juxtaposition���������Norway and  Naples, for instance, are in adjoining counties) defined Mr. Martin as odd.  There were various legends as to thecause  of his singularity. The women suspected  that he had been early crossed in love; the  self-constituted congress which met six  days of the week at the store agreed that  be had been cheated by a brother.now long  since deceased, and under such aggravated  circumstances of meanness that his faith  in mankind had been winter-killed, as  you might say. At all events lie had  bought, twenty years before, a piece of  html high upon the mountain; had cleared  a small plateau and lived there, a secular  hermit, cultivating his garden patch.  His green stuff was the best in a wide region of country.  '���������It ain't enough to plough and plant and  dig round the truck," he would say when  asked the reasons of his success. "I take  au interest in seem' of 'em grow, an' they  know it," them squashes does." But lie  invited nobody to visit his farm, and people understood that he liked to be let  alone.  That morning, however,,, there was a  general craning of necks and a moving  forward of chairs ou the veranda of the  store when Hezekiah drove sedately down  the street. He appeared to notice nothing  unusual, until after he h-fl cared for his  horse; then he turned and faced tbe men  who hud followed him into the shed. "I  hev got some firstratc strawberries to-  Jttjr," he said. "They run even, little an'  big,"to  the   bottom  of  the boxes.   They  - ain't deaconed. - Not but what deacons is  all good, us the sayin' is, but there's odds  even iu deacons."  Hezekiah was not without the solemn,  cut bias humor of the Yankee. He saw  that the others were full of some news.  So he talked strawberries.  Finally young Eli Barnes struck in.  "What do you think about the railroad,  Mr. Martin?"  "I don't know as I hev a call to think  about it; hev I?"  "I guess so. Fact is, they want to run a  . line right-across your laud up there."  "Not through my garden?"  "Well, sir, here's Mr. Thorpe from thc  city, he can tell you all about it. Make  vim acquainted with Mr. Martin, Mr.  Thorpe."  A small crowd had gathered. There  would be sport in hearing the talk between  the mountain farmer and the great- railroad man.   But the two appeared to come  - easily enough to a mutual understanding.  Thorpe explained the proposed route of  the railroad, to connect with another line,  and showed that to cross Martin's table  land was the only way to avoid expensive  blasting of ledges and difficult gradients.  Hezekiah made no particular objections.  He said that "he.didn't know as he knew"  ���������which is as hear as a - Maine man ever  comes to a confession of ignorance���������"why  ~"tlfat~w;as"not"a*good"plaii -    ���������      ���������    ���������  But just, as Thorpe supposed that nothing remained but to go across the street  to the lawyer's office and have tlie deed of  the land made out and signed, Hezekiah  quietly added:  "But,. I can't undertake to ' do nothin*  before I talk with my p.irdncr. Ef he's  willin', I'm . williu'. Ef not, I can't  trade;"  Everybody was astonished.- Twenty  years bad Hezekiah farmed the mountain  laud, and this was the lirst that had ever  been heard of a partner.  "Who is your partner, Mr. Martin?."  hazarded young Barne*������.  ���������  Hezekiah looked at him soberly. "His  name is Black���������Peter Black. He ain't 11  person that raises objections nor talks  too inuch. Likely enough lie will think  about as I do ou the question. But he lies  a right to be consulted, an' hev his say.  E( you'll give me till to-morrow morning,  I'll go home an' talk il over with my  pardner. I think it likely we can come tb  terms with the railroad. Peter ,ain't no  waysditlikilt to git along with; he's got  good sense." -  And no more than this conditional reply  could be had from Mr. Martin. He sold  his strawberries, peus,"lettuces and new  potatoes.-as. calmly as if it were not proposed to devastate his garden. Then he  drove his empty wagon up the mountain  roud. o  His house was a one-story building,  painted a velvety black by the hand of  Time; thc barn wits larger and in. better  repair. Hezekiah put up his horse and  gave him a generous feed; theu went into  the house and soon returned with his own  supper iu his hand, a tin dipper of tea and  a piece of dried apple pie. He sat  the grain-box to eat, talking to the  ljetween mouthful.. The animal thrust  his loug head over the side of the stall,  munching, and pricked his ears back and  forth in token that lie was listening. The  summer twilight cauie with a cool breeze,  and the spicy odor of the pine underbrush  was drawn out by the dews. The stars  appeared, at lirst few, then innumerable".  Hezekiah threw another armful of bedding into the horse's stall, and went  away.  The next morning the verandah of the  village store was populated. They were  waiting for Mr. Martin to bring the answer ot himself and his partner to the proposition of the railroad company. There,  had been much talk about Peter Black;  nobodv knew him, or had heard of him.  ''There was.Blacks over tlie other side  of the mountaiu," said ah old mau. "'But  I was thinkin' they was all girls. cThe old  folks is dead, these thirty year. There was  Alviry an' Rhody an' Ms-rthy Ellen���������well.  I won't say there wasn't no son, but I can't  seem to recollect none."  However, it was settled that Peter must  belong to that family.  Now, Hezekiah's wagon was _een on  the road; the horse was trotting faster  than usual. Air. Martin explained the  extra speed: "My pardner is willin', so 1  didn't stop for no garden truck. Where's  Mr. Thorpe? Good morniri', sir; I'm prepared to step right over to Lawyer Stone's  oflice an' sign the agreement." j  "Mr. Black was willing, you say?" I  "Always willin' an' ugreeable.Peter is. j  But he lied a right to be consulted. 'We I  farm it share an' share alike, an ekil |  pardnershlp." |  All the bystanders who had any plans- !  ible excuse for so doing followed the con- \  trading parties into the oflice. "Here's  the deed you giv' ine to look over, squire;  un'my pardner an' 1 think it is correct;  mi' ef the payment ain't all we could wish,  we expect that it's all that the laud is  wuth to tbe railroad. I've signed the  paper, and Peter Black��������� weil, here's hisX  mark. lie ain't bed school privileges, but  he's got a good head. An' schooliu' ain't  everything."  "Do you acknowledge this to be your free  act and deed, Mr. Martin?" demanded the  lawyer.  "Yes, sir.   Mine an' my pardaer's."  "But Mr. Black must appear in person.  Did lie not know that? He ought to have  come with you."  "Well, iu pint o������ fact he did. Hold on a  minute, squire, an' I'll fetch him.  Hezekiah went across the street and  soou returned leading his horse, who  tVirust his head cordially into the window  of. the office. "Stand still there," said  Hezekiah to him. Then entering," Mr.  Martin explained matters to the astonished company.  "Tliat horse," said he, "is my pardner,  Peter Black. He's good tempered an'  honest an' hardworkin'���������audi don't know  what more you want iu u pardner.' Men  sometimes cheat; a horse never does.  Peter draws the plow while I boltl'it. He  brings the truck to town an' I do the bar-  giiinin'about it. He ain't no slave, Peter  Black ain't. He is my friend and pardner.  He earns his board an' his bed an' the roof  to cover him from the weather, an' more  than that. He is twenty-two years old,  he's worked with me nineteen of them; an'  it stands to reason he ought to hev laid by-  money for his old age. He has. I've kep'  an account, profit an' loss, share au' share  alike. There's $463.50 in the savin's hank,  of which 8231.75 belongs to'Peter Black.  Thc book is in my name for convenience;  but I've writ a paper an' laid, it between  the leaves of my Bible, pervidiri' that Peter,  ef lie outlives me, shall hev his own money  to live comfortable, die easy an' hev a  decent burial. That's my idee of what is  justly due to him."  There was something in Hezekiah's  speech that struck the crowd in the right  way. "That's so. Uosses ain't, no slaves  nor hadn't ought to be," commented young  Eli Barnes.  "I like your way of thinking, Mr.  Martin," said the railroad man. ."But  how are we to get your pardner to acknowledge his signature?"  "I:talked the matter all out before him  in the barn last night," answered Hezekiah. "I ain't sayin' how much Peter  understood nor how much he didn't. But  I'm satisfied that at our age���������I'm about as  old for a man as he is for a boss���������it is better for us to move nearer to folks. We  are both of us a leetle stiff inthej'ints  when we come down the hill. 1 bed to  sign Peter's name for him, au' make hisX.  mark���������I don't'ku.ow as 'twas regular."  "Mr. Peter Black, do you acknowledge  this as your free act and deed?" asked the  lawyer,-humoring.-Hezekiah's theory of  the partnership. ���������"���������  And the horse, by chance or intent, j  bowed his long head with equine sol- |  emu ity. j  LITTLE   LAUGHS.

A. gentleman traveling; in the northerc  part of Ireland, heard the voices of children, and stopped to listen.  - - Finding the sound ctme from a a.iiu.11  building used as a schoolhou.se ; he drew  near as the door was open, he went in, and  listen, d to the words the boys were spelling.  One little fellow   stood apart,   looking  very sad.  "Why dues that boy stand  there?" asked the gentleman.  "Oh, he is good f������r nothing!"    replied  the teacher.

THE   REIGN  The extraordinary prosperity now  reigning in England is the talk of tin*  world. The Island Kingdom has  trouble on her hands with the United  States over Venezuela, she is sending  an expedition up the Nile and at the  same time landing troops at the Cape.  She is obliged to keep an eye on the  Emperor of Germany and his tactics,  in Africa; Russia is presuming on her  rights at. Chef00 and other points in  the far east. In spite tf all this she is  more prosperous than ever. Consols  are over 112. Deposits in hanks are  greater than ever. Her colonies are  pouring tlonds of gold into her lap.  The Bank of England has the largest  bullion reserve it ever had. 'The  revenue receipts are largely in excess  ofthe expenditure. Everything has  an upward tendency. The exports,  imports, railway earnings and clearing-house returns all show great expansion o[ business. The revenue  from' spirits tobacco and tea has increased. Every class of trie community is nourishing except the agriculturists, who, there as here, have now  to compete with better soils and better  climates in all parts of the earih  Comment ing     on     this    the  New  York Post   says;  "This ought to be astonishing reading for an American. We have neatly doubled lhe population of Great  Britain. >Ve have an .immensely  great*.!' area of soil; we have far richer  resources in coal and iron and other  "metals. We,, have a Government  which we maintain is much butter, or  at all events dearer to the people who  iive under it, than the Government of  Great Britain. We have no army; we  have next to no navy- W-** have no  colonies or dependencies. We have  little public debt. Yet we are not  happy. Wails over tin* badness  of business meet one's eye in  every newspaper. We have to borrow  to keep our paper at par. The success.  of the loan is received with shouts of  triumph, though while it is being  raised every business man holds  his breath. At this moment nearly  every man of instruction and  ability in the country is working, with  great anxiety, to prevent the election,  of a President and Congress who shall  declare 50 cents io be worth $1, and  abolish the gold standard. The receipts  ���������fain'helow- the^expenditures;���������"Debts  'contracted in war HO years ago remain  unpaid. . The principal commercial  city in the Union is governed by a  system of blackmail, carried on by a  parcel of ignorant and penniless adventurers tt-oni various parts of tin-  union, who do not'eonceal their 2011-  tt'iupt for the population which submits to them.  Now what causes this ditt'erence?  Nothing material. ..Our population  and resources are, as we have shown,  far greater than those of England.  Our Government, on' paper, is as good  or better. The difference arises out of  the fact that common sense still pre-  - sides over English affair.. Were our  Congress and Legislature to take  charge of Englandto morrow, bv the  first of December the treasmy would  be empty, the Queen would have to  take refuge in Berlin. India would  have risen in revolt, specie payments  would have been suspended, and a  bloody war- would have commenced  witli the principal powers of Europe.  All this has been prevented, and  public affairs go as smoothly in England as private affairs do in this conn-  try, simply by maintaining the  supremacy of common sense, which is  only supplied in thifi country,; unhappily, in too small quantities by the  constitution. They are not desperately wrong who maintain that wp  should be better off to day if governed  exclusively by constitutional conventions, meeting only once in ten years.  ��������� - In England-currency and fins-nce.-ire  left-by general consent to exports, to  nit*n who have given attention !<* such  subjects, or are engaged in the management of currency. A few meta-  ��������� physicians, or professors, or cranks,  may proclaim the near approach of  ruin if some scheme of theirs '>o not  adopted but few mind them. They  make their little, speeches, print their  little pamphlets, but the great world  of business goes on its way. There  are no "gold bugs" in England.     The  Lord Rothschild in having the gold  sovereign's quality as a measure of  value preserved intact. The idea of  submitting currency to a vote at a  general election enters no one's head-  When the chancellor of the exchequer  says he will not have'a thing,'tha1  ends the matter. The ablest men in  all branches are still, as a rule, put at  the head of affaiis for "the general  good. In London instead of a commission giving each other the lie for  political reasons, the police is Koverned  in silence, order and admirable discipline by a one-armed Indian olllcer,  whom no one thinks of inteifering  with.  This means simply the reign of  common sense. It means the application to public affaiis of the individual prudence and foresight which  make our private affairs.11 success. It  is us much within our reach as the  reach of Englishmen. The use of it  during the last UO years would have  given us by this time sound finance,  light taxation and a roaring trade.  The Mikes, Jakes and Barneys, instead  of ruling us, would bein the almshouse  or jail. The American dollar would  he as famous the world over as the  English pound. The fun of it is that,  we can have this state of things any  day we please."  revenues save those squeezed nut of  tlie unwilling pockets of its] native  inhabitants. Having the taxes' paid  and nil-the expenses of the country  found by a parcel of busy foreigners  was a far happier and more com foi t-  able condition of affairs. ,  NOTES.

The terrible accident which happened in Victoria on Tuesday last cast a  gloom uot only over the Province but  also saddened many homes in the  adjacent states of the Union. To us  in British Columbia it is a most terrible calamity for there can hardly be  a person in the province who does not  number an acquaintance among t.he  victims even if no nearer and dearer  friend has been snatched away.  To the survivors remains the stern  duty of allotting the responsibility, if any exists.- The sad  event has proved conclusively that the  bridge was not safe. It must have  been someone's duty to examine the  structure on behalf of the public and  see that it was in a fit condition to  bear the strains placed on it, We  trust "that there will be no Hin.hing  fiom this most unwelcome task, the  thorough performance of which will  have a salutary effect in other places  than Victoria. '"  III news travels apace. By Tuesday  evening vague rumours of a teriible  disaster had reached Nelson, confirmed again on Wednesday morning.  Having.i.Iihs: pi.iiited the sting of a  lerribl. unci riainiy in the breasts of  all those having friends in Victoria,  thc lines went down. But still messages asking for news were poured into  the Nelson telegraph office and duly  accepted. As far as the local operator  knew the service was in perfect working order. But someone must have  known that there was a hitch, and  news of it should have been at  once sent here so that anxious  enquirers might use the other,alternate route. The greatest blame attaches to any official who, knowing  that these messages, were coining in  and could not go forward, kept silence.  It is frequently said that when the  lines aie interrupted, messages are accepted and held over for days or sent  forward by train or boat, to arrive at  their destinations often useless and  out. cf date, without a hint ofthe delay  to the sender. This is done to keep  the business out of the rival American  -liner-^-If-this-praci-ice-if���������reprehensible*  in ordinary times, how much worse  is it when hundreds of people are  racked with suspense over the fate of  those near and dear to theui'-who may  possibly be' numbered among the.  victims of a terrible accident. .  ' Apart altogether from this view of  the matter, the service is execrable.  The lines are useless for ii considerable  portion of the time. Reliable and  rapid telegraphic communication is no  longer a luxury but an absolute necessity of modern civilization. The sei-  vice as allotded to us in Kootenay  is  unreliable to a degree, extortionate!)'  expensive and so slow as to be almost  worthless. It is time it is taken out  of-the hands of a private company and  managed by the  Government for the  people.  fUMlKS-iilONAI.   -AUU������.  G1 EO.

The policy of the Transvaal authorities is inexplicable. The sentence of  death passed on the principal leaders  of the Reform movement wus at once  commuted to imprisonment for five  years. Iii the Transvaal itself Ihis  was felt to be excessive, and the feeling manifested itself in .the raising of  public subscriptions to pay the lines  .of some of the lesser prisoners. Now,  however, without any reason assigned  these sentences are increased to 15  years, a term almost equivalent to life  for men of middle age and certain to  overlap the existence of English prisoners in a Transvaal gaol. The extreme severity c i" the laiest decision of  the government. i= likely to lead to  the much oVsiivu settlement ofthe  question. The Boer population of the  Transvaal is beginning to recognize  the fact that they are killing the goose  that lays lhe golden egg.

About two years age a young gentleman of this city, while In Savannah,  got into a street car with a hoavy umbrella  under his urni. Like a groat many other  oaroless people, he ..eld it at a' dangerous  angle, with the point sticking out behind  him, anil are long the car gavo a lurch and  a lady just behind him emitted an ear-  splitting scream. Everybody jumped and  looked, and to his horror the young man  found that the point of his umbrella had  come iii uontact with the nose - of the  young lady seated just behind him. Of  course, he apologized, or tried,'but it wns  like apologizing for murder over tlie body  of the victim, for the lady's nose wag  bleeding and she. was almost in convulsions with pain.  The car was stopped at the next .bonier,  where thoro happened to be a drug store,*  and the young man, aided and abetted by  ono or two elderly ladies who.at once took  a lively interest in the case, .helped .the  young lady off and into the store and posted off after a doctor. One was found and  tho unlucky nose was soon put'* in 'working order, and the owner, attended by the  married ladies, was sent home In ' a carriage.  The young man took her address and  hunted up a mutual acquaintance,' with  whom he called the next day .to .see how  the nose was getting along. The hose did  well, so did the young man, for by the  time the nose was out of danger he' had  got in the habit of calling, so that it became natural for him to step around in  the evening. So in the course of timo  they were married and she is the only lady  in the United States whose courtship began by, a punch in thu nose from'her future  husband.���������Athens News.  Killed by .Toy.  One of those particularly sad stories  whieh turn up every once In a while developed at the South Side hospital. several  days ago, says a Pittsburg, Pa., paper.  John D. Williams, a young Englishman,  had been con lined there for'ar couple of  weeks with typhoid fever. About a year  ago, Williams Bftine to this country in the  hope of betterfig "hls'coudltlon. He left  behind him a young wife, to whom he had  been married a year,' After arrlvinglu.ro,  every dollar he could save was'laid away.  to provide a home for . the little woman  who was-waiting- across the sea! 'Six  months after he left England a letter-amo  apprlsing him of the fact that. a little  stranger had arrived and wi. alto waiting  for the husband and father to make the  home in America! Two. months ago Williams found himself possessed of sufficient  means to furnish a couple of rooms arid  send for the wife and baby. They arrived  in this city on October 15. Anxiety and  hard workhad worn Williams out, and two'1  weeks before their arrival he was attack*!  with typhoid fever. He was taken to the  .South Side hospital and there his wife  . found him when, she came. Williams was  getting along nicely then, and the only  prospects seemed bright ones for his recovery. Joy at the sight of his wife and the  baby whieh be had never seen proved too  much for him. The excitement left him  weaker and he began to sink.. "A week  later he died. The stricken wife and fatherless babe are now at No. 1,909 Muriel  street. Mrs. Williams has not yet decided  whether to return to .England or .to remain;  in this country.���������Cleveland Leader.
