P.    R.    AND    DONALD.  Golden Era:    It is a matter   of regret that thc   C. P. R.  could   not see  their way to treat   more   liberally   (he  people of  Donald  who  have  suffered  heavily  by   tho  company's  action   in  removing   the   workshops.    'The   experience of the Donald people is a  severe object  lesson    to   the   people  of  Canada, and supports  the contention  thattraflicing   in   townsites   hy ���railway companies should be   put an   end  to.    The people of Donald made   their  homes   th'-re .under    representations  which gave them every, reason   to believe that Donald was to be  a permanent  railway   center,  and   it is   very  hard upon many of the residents that,  after they have spent the best part of  their    lives , there,    tliey   should     be  forced   to, turn   out  and    'make   new  I homes for'.themselves.-while   they  are  handicapped by-heavy   losses in buildings   and  improvements   which   have  been rendered valueless.   .Mr. Forrest,  the owner of the ' Forrest  nouse,   has  alone lost somewhere  between  ,^-1,000,  and   $5,000,   and   other   .firms    have  suffered in proportion.

It is reported that Ben Murphy * is  seriously contemplating the building  of a substantia] residence in the''Lake  Shore addition.  The board ol trade held a meeting  last. Tuesday evening.. Hereafter-meetings will be held'only on the last Tuesday of each month.'     -  Rpbert Robertson, chef at the Moyie  hotel, is having his lot in the north  end of town cleared and will soon begin the erection of a residence.  Norbet Neiderstadt, while playing  at the school last Wednesday,  cut his,ankle pretty badly by ticei-  elently falling on a double bitted axe.  Adiuightt-r was born to the wife- of  W. S.

'' ' ���   i|  Nelson Miner: Tub Moyie Leader,  the able champion of the interests of  that enterprising but ill-used town on  the Crow's Nest Line, has entered on  the second year of its existence. It is  an lip to.date weekly that merits the  support of. the Moyie people.  C, M. Edwards has resigned his position as mining recorder of the Fort  Steele district. He is now looking  after the Cranbrook townsite in the  absence of Col. and V. Hyde Baker.  D. C. Corbin has withdrawn his ap*"  plication for a charter to build the  Kettle River Valley railway in the  Boundary district, being advised that  it would be impossble to pass it at  this session of the Dominion parliament.  The mill at the Golden "Wedge  mine on Lemon Creek, in West Kootenay, is now running day and night,  crushing 25 tons every 2-1 hours. The  last reports were that there was '200  tons of ore in the lower bm and over  30 in thc upper bm.  Mining' Interests Transferred.  Last week Ghas. Kauffman purchased the interests of G..F. .Diamond  in the following claims: ' Gertrude,  Anaconda, Bon Ton, Tenderfoot,  Homes take No. 1, and the Huckleberry. Two of these claime are situated in the vicinity of Palmer's Bar  and the balance are close to Moyie."  Ail the claims have promising showings. Considerable work has been  done on some of them, and it is the  intention of the owners to continue  operations  during   the   coming .sum-  I'l-csbytoreon  Church.  Wm. P. Tanner, a presbytcrian  minister of Windsor Mills, Ont., its in  town aud has -decided to remain and  expound the teachings of his church.  The iirst service will bo held tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock , in the  school-house. Mr. Tanner is a: young  man of stearling ability aud his meetings deserve to be well attended..  Business in all   branches  in Slocan  City is  on   the   mend.    Several  sub-.,  stantial mining deals have   been   con-,  sumni'ated   in    that " vicinity    lately;  which has had the effect of  stimulating things generally.    Much   development work is going pa in a quiet way'  and some good bodies of   ore   are  being   exposed;     That   section   of  the  country is rapidly passing put   of  the  ���"'wildcat" stage and getting dowjn'on-a  permanent    basis.     The     Arlington,  Two Friends   and   Bank of England  miues on,Springer creek will ship ore  during    the   coming    summer .while  the mill on the Golden Wedge, in  the-  dry pre belt on Lemon  creek,  is 'run-,  mng night and day-and making hand',  some profits for its owners.  ShauRluiessy's Visit Postponed.  It was the intention of. Vice Presi*  dent Shaughnessy of the C. P.'to visit  East Kootenay tho latter part of  April to make arrangements for build,  ing the branch to the North Star and  Sullivan mines and also to straighten  out the Movie difficulty. Pressure of  business has compelled, him to postpone his visit for another 30 clays,  which will be the latter   part   of May.  .it  aBHKHBH.^^ KI-JVU.

<> Left to themselves, the two detectives remained silent until thev heard
the front door shtU"by the sauire a* he
and Lewis went out. Then Mr.
Barnes said :
" Well, Tom, you are in luck—a mysterious murder, which will, in my judg-
m<jni, i-eauire much skill to discover
tlie truth ' Come, now, tell me where
you  would  bes-in '!"
" I have found a clue already,"
quietlv  remarked Burrows.
'" Good !" said IMr. Barnes, well
pleased at his pupil's shrewdnc-3-3.
' That is belter than 1 expected. What
is it ?"
" I think that the murderer fired
from the outside through this window."
Burrows indicated a window opening
on thc- lawn to the east. " You see
that there is a hole through the centre
l>ane. That it is of recent origin is
evidenced bv' the broken glass<?on the
carpet, which also shows that the bullet came from without, since the piece**-.
•irvp  lallen   inward."
•' Very well reasoned, Tom, as far as
the   lime   and   origin   of   tho   shot   so,
but  .vou  have   jumped   to   one, conclusion   not   as     yet     warranted."      Mr.
Barnes went to the window and examined it closely.   '• You started  by saying just now that the 'murderer' fl:od
from outside.     That is where you have
gone beyond your -evidence.   This pane
of glass with  that hole and  the fragments on the iloor probably attest Liu*
passage of a bullet,   but there is nothing   as   yet  to' show   that   said   bullet
was fired bv the ' murderer.' "
" Why, who else could have fired it?"
" I have heard that p.hysicians make
a   diagnosis   sometimes   by   exclusion,
but  it is a dangerous plan  for a de-
teethe.       Look   again,   and   you   will
note  that  it  is  the  lower* sash   which
has the broken pane.     Being raised as
it Is, the upper sash Is between it and
the point   from   which  you  argue  that
your   pistol   was   fired.       This   proves
conclusively "—
" That the lower sash has been raised since the shot was fired," interrupted Burrows. " You see, I hav£
thought of„that.' il argue this way :—
Mr. Lewis was standing in the room
when he was struck by the ball. lie
turned and threw up tru sash, endeavouring to da-cover the identity of his
assailant. Then he staggered from
Ihe window and fell a few feet awav,
ns we find him, with hiii head 'in the
fireplace." *    <
" It is. of course, possible. But as
he is in his nightdress it ie curious
that he should have been in this room
where an assassin, whose presence he
did not suspect, could fire imon him.
There is another chance, which is that
someone has opened that window this
morning. Now, looking out, what do
we  see .?"
" A summer-house directly opposite,"
said Burrows. " A most convenient
place for a man to hide in ancl shoot
bis victim as'he passed in front of a
light in a room at night."
" 1 see." said Mr.  Barnes,  " what we

eyes   of   all   thiee   were   attracted    toward  it.      The  woman   moved  forward
to  recover   It.   but  Mr.   Barnes,   thinking   it   a   thimble,   with   a   quick   "Allow   me,"   stooped    arid   picked    it  up.
He was .-.bout  to return it when,  sud-

" ?.iy   theory   is   this,"     replied   Mr.
Barnes. " Miss Lewis entered this
lO'm-i this morning, perhaps opened the
window, and then discovered ihe dead
1/Cdy, the weapon, and perchance more
— at any rate, enough , to make h-r
Furrcct young ?.Iarvc*l. Here let me
I'Oint out that tbe fact that she does

susnerting him. It, was not ' neces-
A:iy for her to know him guiHv for
i*er to aftomnt to srielcl him. It was
enough for Per to entertain suspicion.
T'cnvinced of even tlio possibility of
bis guilt, she might try to save him

Burrows   had   iisteneel   quite     alter.-'"
ti\c!y  to  all  this,   and   was  much   impressed   by       the      reasoning.      After
thinking a few moments in silence, he,
a-d-ed :—
"Do you thirk that the letter whioh
she *■*. rote is to hor lover?"
Again Mr. Barnes was pleased to
ncle that Biirrravs followed his line of
argument.      He   replied :—
" Yes, I think the letter is to Marvel, but her -writing, to him might be
a sequence iu either case. Whether
she   committed   the     deed     herself   or
II inks him  guilty, she would probably
writ-   to   Mr..."
" It would be well, then, for us to
I get that letter ?"
j "Well, indeed ! It would at ']oa<-t
j show us his whereabouts. But" how-
to become possessed of it "■" That is
I the quo'ctlon. Wo need not expect to
1 obtain it tiil it-has loft her custody,
j and he sure sho will be very careful
hew   she   forwards   it."
"If we could get tho pistol, might
we not be able to find out who is the
ovner of it?, That would be something peihaps."
"Assuredly. Besides, it is probable
that, though cleaned, one chamber
i-.ay still be - empty. We have the
nleli and evidence of the recent cleaning. As seen as Mi«s. Lewis leaves
the house, as she will do to start her
!• Iter on its way, I will get the pistol
fiom   her cabinot."
" Ls   there'   anything   more   that   we
can  discover   in   this  room ?"
" Bc-t us, look."
To approach the body they walked
mound a small table, which stood in
fieiil of the fireplace. On this were
scattered loosely some papers. A
diawer stood parlly open, and a large
fut-glass inkwell uncovered. Mr
Barnes glanced at those things as he
pi'fsed, anel his eye v,a,s attiacted bv
a half sheet of paper, with a bit of
writing, which rrotrudcel from under

Some law should be enacted by  tlie  Dominion parliament prohibiting the  trfiflicing in townsites by railway  companies. The railroad companies  ecom to have no sense of honor whatever in dealing'with the people in  the townsites along theii- new rail-  ,     way lines of the west.  The people of Donald, on tlie main  line, made largo purchases - of land  from the C. P. R. and erected substantial buildings with the assurance  .. from .the railway company thai, it,  would .make- the, place a permanent  railway point. 'Now they, are moving  their machine shops, etc., to Kevel-  stoke, and Donald ��� is practically  "killed.  The town of1- Grand, Forks, 'in   the  , Boundary creek country, was a   thriv-j  ing aud substantial town   three  years I  ago, and was built up and. maintained  on the  strength   of   the   mines   surrounding it.    When the   Robson-Pen-  ��� ticton railway, a branch of   the   C.  P.  R., was being built, a half   interest  in,  thc townsile was demanded as a bonus  for   putting   a   station   in the   town.  The  people of Grand Forks  thought  this was   au  unjust  demand, but offered to concede to them the  right of  way through the   town.    This ^proportion did not meet  the   favor  of   Mr.  Wilgress,  the, C.  P.   11.   agent,    who  with     blatant     braggadocio ' 'declared  that the depot would   be  located one  mile west of  Grand   Forks,   and   that  back of the trees* in ihe far west, and  asked me in an. entrancing*, apologetic  way if I wouldn't assist her in lier bicycle practice, 'as Brother"John has a  pressing- engagement, and can't be with  me, ancl, anyway, he says you know  more about bicycling- than he does.'  "Say, just then I could' liav-e hugged  John Jones, and his sister, too, for flint  matter, but John was not there, and as  for his sj*ster���well, I did not dare.  "c-ifiss Jones hhd been the possessor of  a bicycle about three days, a,nd as -ive'i  wended our way side by "side    to   her j  home.tbgvtthe steed 'of steel she in-  , formed  me  that sbo- was doing   'just  lovely.'   And she also ventured the remark  that ,she actually ljelieved Fhe  could ride alone, only she got so terribly  f rip-lit oned.  "When we arrived'at Miss Jones* home,  she excused herself for a few minutes,  saving.she wished to don an appropriate,  cost nine, and when she emerged from I  least three miles from home.

She certainly was the most beautiful  .and sweet morsel of 'femininity it had  l>ecn my pleasure to g*aze upon.   There  was no doubt about this,  this lesson  would be extremely interesting-.   There  would be;.no skirts to get e-ntangled in  the wheels and chain and to bother her  in her awkward manipulations of the  me, nnd  the time spent in teachin  the  summer's evening-, the multi-col  ored foliage of the trees, the irridesceut  clouds  which looked like rare jewels  hung in the western skies, as the rays  of the now obscured sun cast indescribable'glittering tints over them.    But  ! poor me, my body and mind were racked  witli pain, and I did not appreciate our  surroundings.   After tho, fall then the  unusual exercise, Gvery    muscle    and i  nerve in my body seemed to tingle-with  electric shocks.   I was just about done  up and when I would, think of Uie return journey my heart  would,, nearly  bound from its natural anel best.location.   Every breatii 1 took seemed to be  drawing hugxs chunks of solid air into  my lungs, instead of the pure, country  atmosphere which I way actually taking into my system.   I was tired, sore  and   disgusted   with   everything, even  wjth the maiden at my side, whom. I  now. thought, one of,the ugliest, most '  uninteresting persons it had been my  misfortune, to meet.    I was* thinking,  thinking deeply;'thinking some things  1 would not dam think aloud., when 1  w-as suddenly brought to my senses by  my fa;-* companion saying:" 'Well, I'm  ready.'    So was I���I had to be, and I  at   once arose  and  grabbed 'up   that  wheel.   Of course, before I could start  her homeward it was first neeess.'iry to  get her on to-the bicycle, and I it rem*  bled as I thought of the task before me  left in my care will be promptly at-  ended 'to, and satisfaction w il be  guaranteed.'

Tho methods employed by the company ivere anything but honorable,  not nn effort being spared in their at-  flttempt to ruin the people who had  invested then- all jn their favorite  spot.  The Rossland Miner, ia speaking of I  the nefarious actions  ou   the   part, of  the C. P.

I was mad clear through and the  niore* I meditated the angrier I got.  But  at last it dawned upon me that it was  not tbe proper thing, for me to be sitting upon a wayside fence and, leave a  young lady to take her own way home  after nightfall.
