I ���   *��� ' |       r       I  largest piece ci mining machinery in  the whol? of East Kootenay \;/tt5 set in  motion. ���Tlii5 was the f. ttj.rtjng of the  Lake ' Shore air compressor plant,  owned by the .Canadian Gold Fields  Syndicate of Toronto, that now ha3  the Lake'Shore mine, which, is situated within a stouos throw of the  ^principal street of Moyie.  At. five o'clock',a. large crowd had  gathered at the Lake Shore power  boiiBe at the foot of Victoria street to  witness the starting of the new machinery. ' J. C. Drewry, managing director of the company, .was at the  throttle, and Mrs. Foley, wife of  Martin Foley, the foreman, was at the  whistle,when the wheels were started,  in  motion.   Everything vyorked  like  a charm.   In a few moments the  ma-  - i  ohinery *.yas shift down, and. Mr.  Drewry, turning to the audience, said :  "I christen this.- compressor plant  tbe George Sumner, . iu honor of  George Sumner, chairman of the executive'committee of the Canadian  Gold Fields Syndicate' Limited, of  Toronto."  1 O a  Refreshments and cigars were  then placed at the disposal of those,  present. The crowd then ascended  tbe hill toVn'c ,No. 3 tunnel .of tho  mine,to witness the starting of the  (irst machine drill ever used in' East  Kootenay,  Yesterday a full force of miners was  rut to work in the No. 1, No. 2 and  No. 3 tunnels. In tho mine four  eight hour shifts are working and the  two engineers'1 on the air compressor will work 12 houi^ shifts.  Dan McDougall, who superintended  the installing of tho plant, is in  charge of" thd comprssor and he is  ably assisted by D. E. McDonald, receutly from 'Nova Scotia. Both are  expert engineers and machinists.  Sunday will be observed at the 'Lake  Shore mine, and on that day each  week all operations will cease.  The short time in which it has taken  to get this machinery in operation is  simply surprising. It is only a few  weeke since J. C. Drewry took charge  of this property, aud today we find  machinery installed, a fine ofiice built,  and the mine equipped with all the  conveniences and appliauces ior working it on a large and systmatic 'scale.  Today three car men were added to  tlie force. On Monday several muckers and ore sorters will be put at work  and rn that day regular shipments  will commence. Today thero aro  32 men on the payroll of the Lake  Shore mine, and by next Saturday the  number will be increased to at least 42.  TUB   ST.   KtkiE.VK.

The  flag was a handsome and lyorthy tribute to the new educational Institution. '    '  Rev. G. E.

He will hold an:  other service in the same place next  Monday exening at, 8 o'clock!  Last Tuesday D. J.

J.  McMahon, who with his wife have  been visiting in North Dakota.    The}*  A Karo Entertainment.  ' Prof. Paul Boulon, the old  favorite,  and his sparkling little   comedy  company gave.a delightful   entertainment  at the Moyie Drug Hall  last  evening.  This is by long odds the best company  which has ever played in  Moyie, and  it is safe to   say   that   there   are  few  companies of its size on the road today  that equal it.    Prof. Boulon's work on  the violin was simply   marvelous,  and  he proved himself a master of  his  instrument, while in   his  interpretation  of the Chinese character he  is  simply,  hard to beat.   Pete Brady, in his Irish  and German specalties, created plenty  of amusement for   the  audience,  and  J. W. Lambert's  manipulation of the  shadowgraphs was good.    The trio put  up a good, clean, high class entertainment and one  well   worth 'attending.  They show again tonight at tho  same  place snd are deserving of  a  crowded  house.    'After Twenty-JRlfflit Veurs.  Robert Dore, who worked in the  placer diggings of the Wild Horse 2S  years ago, returned to the scene of his  palmy days.a few weeks since and located a quart:' claim 'on nearly the  identical ground upon which he used  to work in j*ears gone by. He now  has a four' foot ledge of quartz which  runs 124- per cent nickel. Mr. Dore  first had his find assayed for gold,  silver and platinum, but 'without  getting a trace.of any of the inetals.  By chance he then had it assayed for  ���nickel with the result before stated.  Tbe claimis situated at the old China  diggings on   the  Wild .Horse,   about  Dance, a Success.  The dance given at the Lake Shore  hotel last Tuesday evening was like'  all the preceding hops given at that  popular house���a big success. There  was a good number of both' lady and  gentlemen dancars present, the evening was cool and everything passed off  smoothly. A-t midnight' a dainty  luncheon of ice cream, and cake was  served. ' Music was furnished by  -E^T-.-S.mj:t-h^vialin^and Scott Morrill,  guitar.  ,    Twin Lakes Mineral Claim.  ' A. M. Hogg has a valuable property  in the Twin Lakes mineral claim, situated on Wild Horse creek about. IS  miles north of Fort Steele. He finished, doing his second year's assessment .vorklast.wock, and now has an  excellent showing, haviug a two foot  ledge carrying gold aud silver in large  quantities. Mr. Hogg will make an  effort to induce capital to take.'.hold_.  and work the property on a large  scale.  Moyio's Payroll for Jnly.  As near as can be calculated Moyie's  payroll for July was at least $10,000.  Of this amount oyer $6,000 was paid  out by the St. Eugene company. The  balance of $4,000 is easily made up  from the payrolls of the ' Lake Shore,  Society Girl and Park, Mitchell & Co.'s  sawmill; Thus it will be' seen that  Moyie has a payroll backing her that  lew towus in East Kootenay can  boast of. l  School Opeuoil Monday.  Miss Jane Moore returned froni  Kaslo last Sunday, . where she spent  her vacation, and on Monday ' opened  school in the now building which was  built by popular subscription by the  people of Moyie. There are uow 17  children in attendance.  IT DON'T COST  To call and see our stock of  FRESff - CROCERIE  We   are  complete  in   Men's  Furnishings.

As the minutes passed,  however, first Virginia and then Mr.  1'arne.s hiniseli* became alarmed ��� at  Kverlv's prolonged absence, and he  was about to make some search when  a loud shout arrested their attention.  Jt came from the direction of the Jam,'  and Mr. Barnes realized at once that  Kverly, instead of following the bundle  v.-l ich had Just'" been thrown over, had  ...i ne under the dam in search of the  on'glnai one: A few moments later he  was uec-n emerging- from anions' the  tinibus which,supported the dam, presenting a verv wretched and bedraggled appearance. He held a large  bundle in bis hands,-and exclaimed,  a-; ,he came toward them : ���  " God bltss you. Mr. Barnes, vou  v, ere riRht.

Virginia and "Kveriy were anxious  to or-en the bundle at once, but tlie  (���elective would' not permit it until  they should reach home.  ���' We might lose the locket here in  the road," said he, " and, besides, Mr.  Kveily is all wet," So they were -guided bv him and returned to the farm.  >\h>-re the detective insisted on a  <hange of garments for Kverly before  he would examine the bundle. When  H was opened, Virginia claimed that  fhe recognized the clothes ,as those  \\..i'n by Marvel on the night of the  murder. Mr. Barnes next searched the  pockets of the vest, which Marvel had  d^n-nated as the garment wherein he  had placed the medallion, and withdrawing his hand laid before the delighted gaze of the others a locket,  the exact counterpart of the one found-  in the hand of the corpse.  raft":  lai  thev -had  his  father  , CHAPTER XVI.

As soon as it was settled beyond all  doubt that the clothes arid locket  lound under the dam were the ones on  which the fate of Walter Marvel depended Mr. Barnes was all activity  a^ain.  ���' Now," said he, speaking rapidly,  " there is not a moment lo lose. 'We  have saved the innocent, but we must  >et find the guilty, and he .has a week  tne st&it on us. How soon can 1 get  uvuv   from   this   town ?"  "A train passes J.ee Depot at 1  o'clock.

She is desperately ill,  and I fear that she -may lose her rea-  . on if she does not soon hear that there  is no danger threatening Walter;"  Mr. Barnes considered a moment and  then  suid:���  "If you find it necessary  t.-ll her that your uncle, Mr  not  dead.".. , ,, .     ,  "Not dead !"  exclaimed his two auditors in a breath.      : "     .     ,  ������ Yes,   tell   her  that  he  is   not  dead.

Mr.  Barnes was fortunate in finding  trains  to meet him  as he pursued  his  way   to   New     York     by   a   circuitous  route.      The- one which he  boarded at  Bee took him as far as Worcester and  thence he went on to Albany, knowing  that  from that  point  he  could easily  rea-h N"W York. As it was, he arrived in that citv before noon on the foi-.  Wine dav. Beavimr the train he  ..-rriedlv proceeded up town to Wash-  "Fl.n Heights. Consulting his me-  l^randum book, he turned a few  ���,^ then paused at one which conned the rollowins address:���  'John Lewis, Esq. Care T. Jamison.  Washington Heights, N. Y.'^  ' Thi<- he had obtained from Bur-  mvs'to whoir.. it will he remembered,  had' heeri shown thive letters by John  Tewi=; who claimed that  fc'ten written to him bv  vl-ile he was at school. Mr. Barnes  made inauirles. and verv readilv found  I hnt Mr. Jamison kept a lame board-  iiV school for boys, and that he had  d. lie =o for the la.-��t thirty years. Receiving" the correct address, he at once  proceeded to the school house, and was  soon ' in rhe presence of a pleasant  old   man.       ' ��� -���     ���  ������ Gcod morning, Mr. Jamison, *- be~  b-c�� Mr. Barnes: '/1 sun looking for  a man who lias .recently inherited  si me property, but he cannot be  found. He is supposed to" be dead  and probably is. The case thereiore  stands thus :���If he had a son, that  sen would inherit, but if not the property go-3s elsewhere. 1 have heard  that he did have' a son, who was for  some time at your school, and so I  have ventured to trouble you, hoping  that vou might be-able to as-eist me."  "1 am ut vour service, and, if you  iVill sive me the name I will look,over  my books and  see what I' can find."  "The name.is John Lewis, and it ia  about fourteen or fifteen vears since  the lad was supposed to be here.  Morecver, it may hclo you to remember him if 1' toll 'you that, It is further supposed tl.tj,t he ran away from  school and  went to sea."  "1 am afraid ,vou have been, misinformed," said the schoolmaster, shaking his venerable head. " Nothing ot  lhat kind ever occurred here. 1 do  not recall such a name <>t" a pupil, but  I luiew a man of that name once,  and have good reason to, remember  hini."  " Will you tell me about it ?"  " Certainlv. Now let me see. ( It  must have been about the very time  that you mention, though 1 could ,give  you the, exact date, a gentleman called here and wished to see the school.  He said that he had a son whom he  wished to place in a military Institu-  .ticn, such' as this. His 'name was  Lewis. After I had .explained our ���  methods to him he went away, promising to call again! This he did,  and on his' second 'visit he told me  that his son had refused to go to ,a  military academy, and that he had  placed hini elsewhere. However, he  seemed very .r/iuc-h interested in the  school, and made several suggestions  as, to improvements. When I explained to him that there were no  funds for anv such purpose, he generously .offered to pay any bills that  might be incurred. I .protested at  first, 'but he persisted. He even came  here himself to superintend the alterations." n    ,'  " You sblv that he lived here a short  time '.'"  " Yes, about a month."  " Can vou  tell  me whether his mail  was  received   here '-'"  ."Oh'fyes.     'He   was   a  stranger   K  the   citv,   and   had   no   other   address  while he wa.s here.     So of course his  letters  came   to   the   academy."        .  .  ���' While   he   was   with   vou   did   hjtr.  sen ever come lo visit him '.'"  '   "No,   I "never   saw   the -hoy,   but  he  constantly   spoke   of   his   son,   and   If  he-   is   the   party' for   whom    you   are  looking 1   have  no  doubt   that he  has  or had 'a son.     Thit seems to  be the >  fact which you .wished to substantiate,  1   believe "  '���'Yes, that is all that I wish, except  that I would like to find the son.  However, as vcu canrot.aid me there,  f bid you good morning, and I thank  you for your courtesy."  Loavine: the academy,. Mr. Barn&a  walked as far as the nearest station  of the .elevated railroad, and \vent  down town to Grand street; thence he  walked to the office of the'Norwich  line of steamers. Addressing'' the  clerk, he said :���  " Do you keep a passenger list ?"  " Well, hardly that, in the strict  scr.se of the term. But we keep the  names of   all  who take staterooms."  " Can   you   let   me   see   that   list   for  last  Saturday i ight's steamer ?"  The list was handed to him, and he  carefully ran his ringer over the column until it rested on the name " Walter Marvel." He copied the number ot  the stateroom a-ssismed, and left the  dock with a. smile of satisfaction. "I  think I may have some dinner now/' said he to himself,  and he entered a restaurant  where he partook >' of a' substantial  meal, after which he went to .police  headquarters, asked for the Inspector,  and was at once shown into the privat*  office of that oillc-ial.  '��� Good-morning, inspector." said Mr.  Barnes.' ���' I would like to ask whether  there has heeti a report' of anyone missing Iu this city during this week ?"  " Why, yes. there has !" The inspector eyed him keenly " Mr. , Barnes,  what do   you  know '.'"    '  ". lam working on the Lewis murder  case, inspector; up in Lee, N.H., you  know."  The Inspector nodded, and Mr.  Barnes  continued :  "J.have left the Pllkingtons-because  they permitted another man to interfere with me. It my theory be correct, I must trace a man from ���this city  to Lee."        a. -, ' ������; ���.'������.;-.  "If you have left the Pllkingtons,"  said the Inspector.''''-'! will help you. A  woman reported here yesterday that  her husband has been missing since  last Saturday, arid, that she . feared  foul play. 1 put a .-man on the ease,  and- he has traced him as far as a  Sound steamer; so he is probably down  your way."  " Is any name given ?"  ���y" Yes,  but as you must-be in a hurry, take' the papers With you.     I entrust  the   whole' mater   to 'your judgment."  Mr. Barnes thanked the inspector for  this mark of confidence, and then left  the building. Half an hour later he  was at a fashionable -un-town hotel,  and had sent his card up, to the woman named. . In a few minutes raori  he was in her presence.  "���I. see by-.your card that you area  detective," began the woman, "and I  suppose that ' you have brought me  news of my ht'i'sband."  "I have found out that he left the  city last Saturday night. Did you  know  of his intention to do so?"  "I did not, but it does not surprise  me that he has done so. Where has  he   gone ?"  "1 came to see if you can help m*  on that point. All I know is that he  went away on a Sound steamer. Have  you any idea of, any object which  would  call  hini   fcast ?";  " Yes, but 1 may be wrong,) and  would prefer not to commit myself.

It ft not organized for the  benefit of any one individual, but, it  rVr-i'iiros help from every indvidtuil to  ,���. .'...niplish tho best results. !It is the  best, way of attendingto the interests  of the people, lis represented in the  welfare and progress of the town as a  whole. It does a broader work than  any person or any one company can  do, and it follows a systematic method  more, comprehensive and bound to  bring belter, results.  There aro too many instances where  tho idea that "what is everybody's  business is nobody's business" has  been allowed to result seriously ,in  enterprises of a public nature. Busy-  men are too apt to slight 'important  ' matters with only that excuse to  iustify their lack of interest.  ,. So far as the Moyic board of trade is  concerned it has done good work,'but  it can do better, in order to be able  to do it it must- have more members.  More people must be interested in it  and give it support. Every business  or professional' man v/ho has interests  here and believes in the town's future  &hould be n member; Everyone v/ho  thinks no opporiuniny ehonld be lost  to improve the town and add to its  population and wealth ought to be a  , member of an,organization which can  ,do so much to attain the end sought.  The present membership can be  doubled easily.  There are many ilonrishing places  in the west , which owe their growth  and advancement in no small degree  to (he earnest work of boards of trade.  An organization of this sort, made up  of the best citizens .who have the  interest of the town at heart, can accomplish wonders. It can accomplish  ' what individuals working independently could never accomplish.  On September l'ftb the first term of  membership of the Moyie board of  trade will expire, and the present  officers will re the. Every resident  and business man of Moyie should pay  his fee and be placed on the member  ship roll before that date.
