'  ���No Iniiue.-,t Held.  James Stewart, better known as  "Scotty," and Michael Redmond, two  railway laborer's in MeGuire's surfac-  iugt-.gang, were run over and tilled by  an east bound freight train at this  place last Sunday morning about 12:30  o'clock. ���      '      ���   '  Shortly after the east bound freight  passed, through Moyie last Sunday  morning J. E. Hill, a fireman, and N.  G. Grant and A. W. Richardson, two  brakemen .boarded ,a handcar and  started for the boarding ear at the  foot of the lake. They had only proceeded about 20"5ards south of Queens  avenue when they discovered the pros-  tiate form, of-a man lying on' the  track, his head crushed to a jelly and  his brains and pieces of his' skull  scattered over the gronnd. It .proved  to be the body of Redmond. The  men returned and gave the alarm.'  Special Constable Lin'dsay and Vick  Desaulnier, accompanied by Hill,  Grapt and Richardson picked up the  body aud placed it in the log building  back of the Leader, office. Tlie railroad men again started out, but only  got about 80 yards'farther when the  body' of Stewart was struck. ,. He  was lying with his head over the same  side of the track that "Redmond was  found on. The train had passed over  his left arm, shoulder and neck,' aud  had almost severed his head from his  body. Stewart's i; body was also  picked up and placed beside thai of  his comraude. Gold Commissioner  Armstrong at Fort Steele was notified, and he in turn notified Coroner  Moffat at Cranbrook. Moffat came  ont to Moyie on Monday morning's  freight, train, viewed llie bodies and  decided that it was not necessary to  hold an inquest. The" remains of  Stewart and Redmond' were interred  in the Moyie cemetery Monday evening. The last rites were read by F. I.  Moore.  Stewart and Redmond were around  town Saturday evening and were  drinking quite heavily. It is supposed they started for the boarding  car down the track about 12__o_'clock;  became sleepy aud laid down, and  that the train came along and struck  them, as .before stated. A peculiar  fact, however, is that both men were  found in nearly the same position on  the track���their bodies en the inside  of the track and their heads over the  rail next town. Neither bodies were  apparently moved by the cowcatcher  and firebox of the engine passing  over Ihem. and not a particle of blood  could be found on the wheels ol en-,  ginc ^o. Ml, the one that is supposed  to have did the work. The engineer  on .'.b'-i says he ran through Moyie on  that trip quite slow, and that the  men could no have been on the track  without him seeing .-.-them.  James ...Stewart,' or "Scotty," as ho  was better known, had worked on the  Crow's Nest road for nearly two years.  His father lives in Dundee, Scotland.  Very little is known here ,Of Michael-  Redmond, further than that ho began  work-.oh this road about .two months  ago. A letter was found in his pocket  addressed to Michael J. Redmond, 311  Day street, Sau Francisco, Gal.; which  no doubt was his residence at one  time. Both fnon were about 24 years  of -age. '.-"..  BROS.  MAMMOTH   RETAIL   EMPORIUM.

Now, none av the bukes bavo it right.  They musrly tell uzthat Gineral Coxe sint  detachmints av his brigade at Gauley  Bridge, that, marched up the mountains  an dhruv Floyd's foorco aff it. But see  now how easy it is to misconsthrue history  an divart honors I ~  I had joost fastened my horso to the  fince an sat down comfortably like on tho  Dorch with Miss Julia whin kexaa 6econd  lieutenant an poked his nose in.

Says 1 to 'VI f,  "As long as I havo a horse a. , my  legs I'm not the boy to give way t...'. beg  O'Rourke," says tho gineral sternly.  You may be euro I stuck to it bravely  thin, although it was a lie, made at the  moment���I whipt out the _b-6t thing came  into my head. ' _    ��  "I make bowld to asshume the intoire  responsibility," says I. Says the gineral  to himself, *'I can't understand why Ben-  ham an Schenk have failed.3' You see,  thim was ' tho gineraJs histhory tells you  was sint over the" hills -to attack Gineral  Ployd's min in the rear. "Perhaps  O'Rourke's right after all."  Thin 1 rode close beside the gineral an  whispered in his ear, "Gineral, an you'll  rely upon me I' give you the word av an  O'Rourke it's thrue what I'm tellin you,  an iv I may make so bowJd I'd advise you  to lay on thim immajitly���thejr'll run like  wather. It'smeself 'u'd likonothin better  than to ardber the advance."  "I beluve you'r right," said he in a whisper, 4,but for the sake av appcaranocs I'll  jist put it in writin an you'll carry the  ordhers to tho commanders of tho rigi-  mints."  " That was on tho tinth, or will it be the  ninth, av Noviniber���on tho tinth as histhory tells you���min from Coxe's brigade  crassed tho river, wint to the mountain  top an sint Gineral Floyd's foorces right  about ivery man jack av thim on tho ro-  trato,'  Thim's tho facts suppressed by histhory.

There you have it now!"  1 mistrusted whether there'd bo an  dunce av brains left in men, for by the  i-aiuc token I niver was on a horse in my  life, Whin the captain called ine to him  in his tint an bored me like u gimblet  wid his wan eye, says he:  "1 suppose, Corporal O'Rourke, you are  aware av the honor con furred on youl-"  "It's bchouldcn r.o you I am," says 1.

Ho looked at me with open mouth, an  thin to fh:ro him I says, "I'd have you to  know I riprisint headquarters."  Now, the divil was in it or I'd not dared  say such a ihing to my shuparjor oflicer,  but there was Miss Julia, an there niver  was an O'Rourke that would demane  himself before a woman.  "Very .well," saysJic, quite so4berlikc.  "An you'll not favor mo wid j-our name?  "I'll find a way to get it."  "To the divil with names," says I.  "Your ugly face is enough for mo.

To tell the truth, I attached less  value to the garment itself than I did  to,tlie "sign manual of the house, emblazoned on a strip of wbito silk and  stitched inside the collar. It was a trifle  snobbish, I dare say, but if so I've received my punishment.  "A few weeks ago 1 took the coat  along 'with me on u trip to Florida, and  while at a small coast rescrt I'noticed  the buttons were getting worn. The  only tailor in town was a Chinaman,  and 1 gave him the coat with instructions to repair tbe damages, which he  did very neatly. I had forgotten all  about the incident, and one evening  during carnival was at the club chatting with' some visitors from 'Detroit  when somehow or other the conversation turned on high art tailoring.  "One of the strangers sang the  praises of a chap at his , home, and I.  like a fool, couldn't resist the temptation of remarking that my suit was  made by Poole. Thereupon the other  fellow expressed curiosity as to how the  English tailors inserted the shoulder re-  enforcements of dress coats, and I obligingly slipped mine off to allow him to  examine.it. He looked it over, and  when he handed it back I noticed that  he wore a peculiar smile. It was. no  wonder, for, by Jove, in place of the  signed silk strip below the collar was a  great hideous pink tab bearing the  legend. 'Charley One-Lung. Merchant  Tailor. Wayback. Fla.!'

" How did you know that ?" blurted  out the witness, at last aroused to  speech and -jvidently amazed. Mr.  liarnes smiled slightly.  " How l know is of small consequence," said Mr. Tupper, " but I  will tell you. The detective has been  all over the place, and as fortunately  there was no snow on the ground the.  Imprints of your feet left no room for  doubt that there was a meeting between a man and a woman in that  summer-house. All that was left was  to discover  their  identity."  "And how1 have you done that���that  is, if you have done so?"  " Do you deny that you and Miss  Lewis met at that place and on that  night '.'"  " I  neither deny nor admit It."  " Perhaps you will later. You say  you were In Lee. If not at the farm,  where  were  you ?"  " I was out for a time and then went  home."  "Mr.'Lucas, did you hurt yourself  that  nlRht '!"

Alpha Separator Shaft  Breaks and  '"   Plays Havoc.  A frightful accident occurred at the  Elgin Creamery, at this place,, last  Wednesday morning, which, by good  fortune, caused very little damage,  considering the circumstances. It  . seems almost a miracle that no one was  killed.  The separators   had   been  started for  the day, and had  just' got   under full j  motion,,when Geo. Segar, who was attending to a belt   near by, noticed that  one of   the t separators was  making  a  peculiar noise and was not   acting just  right, and he called to  his  brother, J.  W. Segar, who was iu the weigh-room.  Tho latter then started from \.ae weigh-  room to the floor which the  separators  were on, and had no more than-reacbed  the bottom of the steps   when''the air  was filled with all kinds of flying iron,  sho-;, steel, etc.    Some of Hie  missiles  struck J. W. in the head, aud inflicting  several wounds aud bruises aud knocking him  senseless.    He   was  immediately taken to   his home  aud   medical  aid  summoned.    A  careful   examination  showed   that   tbe   wounds were  nothing of a'  very serious   nature, although the  side of  his   face   and  his  head  was   quite   badly, scratched and  bruised! <   ' ���-  The damage was caused by the  breaking of the shaft to the separator  close, to the bowl and leaving'the bowl  free whiie revolving at the high rate of .  6,000 per minute. It tore the. casing  and covers of the separators into small  pieces,' and it was these which did the  damage. The bowl jumped around  the room quite lively before it stopped  and left its marks good and deep wherever it struck. ' Parts of the casing  were fouud. imbedded in the walls all  about the room,aud several pieces went  through an inch door near at hand.���  Dairy report, April 7. .   ���  ermanent  ure of  ait Rheum.
