As they were climbing the  railroad grade and passing a gang of  Italians who were at work a short distance above the tunnel, Cronin's legs  gave away and he fell. . The dagoes, it  is said, laughed- ��� which incensed  Cronin who applied some vile epithets  -to them. The Italians took exception  to Gronin'9 abuse and two or three of  them started up the\hill after hiin  with Sherwino in! the lead., Cronin  immediately picked up a large rock  and let0 drive at Sherwino, striking  him on the head and rendering him  unconscious for some time. The in:  furiatcd Italians, seeing their fellow  countryman getting the-worst- of it,  rushed at Cronin and beat him unmercifully with picks, shovels or anything they could lay their hands to,  and had it not been for the timely arrival of Messrs. Cowan & O'Neil on  the scene it is hard to tell where the  affray would have ended.  At the solicitation of Messrs. Cowan  and O'Neil, E. H.. Oliver hastened to  this place to notify the mounted police. Sergeant Clopp was in the saddle and off for the scene of the tragedy  in less than -two minutes and rode  the distance of eight miles in 35 minutes.' Cotstable Angers, who was re-  retuming 'from Fort Steele, happened  scageant. They found Cronin and  Parker in a- shack guarded by the,  Italians and Sherwino in another  shack being attended to by his friends.  Cronin and Parker were put under  arrest and brought to this place by  Sergeant Clopp. Cronin's wounds  were examined and, dressed by A. T.  Clark. Ho suffered considerable from  two ugly scalp wounds and complained of a severe pain iu his side.  The next morning Sergeant Clopp  took the prisoners back to the camp  and liberated Parker, it being siiown  that he had taken no part in the  affray, and Cronin was taken to Fort  Steele, where'he will be held awaiting  the action of the injured Italian,  Very little is known here of  Cronin's-past history, but the coolness with which-he took this matter  showed ' that he is inclined to /be  a rather tough character. It is said  when Mr. O'Neil informed him  that he had nearly killed the  Italian, he simply said: "I'm������   -dad of it."  L�� A %p 'w -V1 X %J O .*  .

'   '    Col! ISaker was Hero.  The Hon. Col. Baker an9. J. H.  Laidlaw arrived here from Cranbrook  last Saturday afternoon on' tho Echo,  and in the evening the colonel held an  informal meeting at the Movie hotel.  The object of the meeting was simply  to meet the people face to face and explain away , any "grievances" they  might 01 have, against him or the  government party.  The colonel is an^ impressive talke  and leaves no doubt in the listner's  mind of his sincerity and honesty. He  briefly reviewed the work accomplished  by the Provincial government during  the past few years, and especially that  coming - under his -^departments as  Provincial , secretary, minister of  mines, minister of education and  minister of immigration. He spoke  on the question of a school for Moyie  arid said that the government would  grant a school whenever there were 10  children of school age, and a teacher  whenever the number reached' 20  children.  He spoke of the mining bureau  which has already been established in  Victoria'to which he intends adding a  a mining school that persons so disposed may be given an opportunity to  learn the different branches of ��� mineralogy. He invited the prospectors and  mine owners to send specimens of ore  to the bureau, and when doing so to  also send  a   sample   of   the country  LOCAL BRIEFS,  l/rock.   By doing this, persons inspect-  along about the same time as did  thc//jng the specimens mad also study the  Weut Over tlio'inmip.  A rather;peculiar accident occurred  on the railroad between this place and  Muir's saw mill one day the fore part  of this week. One of the horses at  work there with a cart heavily loaded  with rock lost his footing and got  started over the dump. The grade at  that point being close to the lake and  very steop, the heavy load pushed the  horse down tho embankment and  clear out into tho lake where the  water is at lonot 15 feet deep. The  weight of tho cart and load took tho  horse to. the bottom, where ho rc-  ni:iini'd until the following day when  tho ouW.it was fished out.  formation of the country from where  they came.  Several questions were put to him  which he answered to the entire satisfaction of the questioners. He said he  would bo here next Wednesday, June  w22, and touch on political matters.  That he had invited Mr. Baillie, the  opposition candaie, to be present- and  hoped his invitation would bo accepted.  ' The following day, in company with  G. Campbell and ]?el��ir Ivynch, Col.  Baker" visited the St, Eugene mine.  He expressedhimsolf as being much  pleased with the.looks of that property.    ���' ��� '.'-       '. ���".'���  Ho   and  Mr.  Laidlaw   returned  Cranbrook the same evening.  to  XKo Silver Queen.  ��� Last Saturday W. J. Tiemey and  and G-eo. W..Aldous,purchased a half  interest in tho Silver Queen group  from Cha-s. Diamond. ������;,.  The Silver Queen is situated'on tho.  west.shore of the lake, nearly opposite  this place, and was ,.owned by Chas,.  Diamond of this city and A. E. Elton  of Fort Steele. Over $1,000 worth1 of  work has been done on the group in  the way of tunnels, shafts, crosscuts,  etc, and some splendid assays have  been received. Arrangements arc being made to commence active development work and eudeavor to make the  property a dividend payer.  The putting through of- the deal  had an exhilarating effect upon tho  parties involved and champagne  flowed freely for a time that day.  Messrs. Campbell &,. Clark of the  Moyie hotel have decided to give a  dance on the evening of Jtnv ..ot.  It is reported that silver is up to GO  cen ts" a  James Cronin went to Spokane thi&  week.

This  has the effect of giving tho men better  ventilation and light   for   their  work,  All hands are now at work taking out  rock from the lower workings.  A tramp died at Ymir recently, and  on the body was found $300. From a  financial standpoint a man would  better bo a tramp thajn an editor.

I FOUND ITEIt TTIEUE WI1ICX FESTERED.       ,
nl feature had been added   to   the   house,
•considerably to the detriment   of   its  ex-,
.ternal, appi-aranee, by tho general's orders.
He made :t  his   parade   ground   in   bad
weather- and there he  used to   march up
and down, attended by many ra   soldier's ■ v.onVa'ir't" wiikeV'
wraith, summoned hy his old commander | J10l;cc<i x}ml his c
fruni a grave in the south.    The.   furnish-   1Iilu)U'., f:,ce. nar
ings of the room were   ns   peculiar as it-
dimensions.' At. cue end was tho general's 1
desk whore ho  wrote   his   letters.    Thv.-e '
was also an easy   chair   for   reading, and
some   small,   revolving   bookcases.    Tho
other end had somewhat   the   appearance
of a  o'imorvaiory;   and   midway   was   a;
couch with cushions, a   work basket with ,
colored wools, and   other indications that
Margaret often kept her   father  company
in tlie Long Koom.
1 found her there seated. She lay on
the couch fust a-leep. I stood by her side,
looking down upon her beautiful fn<e,
ami she did not. know. Tho scncrnl, at'
his desk, had not. moved at; tho sound of
niv coming. The somnolency' of tin: sum-:
mer's day seemed.to hold 'them both.,..;     ;;
I put. my hand on Margaret's forehead |
and waked her. -\Shp did not start, but |
only opened her brown eyes and looked |
up at mo \yith instant recognition, .lie-]
fore either ot ns. spoke, Mrs. Holiiday up- j
poured in a'doorway, and said:    -      " , ' . I
"Capt. Marshall is here.-"  ■ ..  '      j
1 was .looking straight; into M'argaret'a |
face when the mair's nahie v,;as mention- j
od; and somehow I got.; the impression.!
that there might'he hope for Preble- yet. j
' The- L'irl followed h< - mother to c.nother :
■port of"the hoiu'e. n-i. I walked to the!
general's side. Ho was bent over his j
desk, and h.is head rested upon his hands. !
I spoke, and ho did not move. I laid my j
hand upon his shoulder. My .touch dis- I
t'urbed the equipoise of his body. It slow- j
ly, heavily slid from the chair,.and 'Cell to ;
the door where it lay face upward. j
A single, glanco at. that face showed mo ;
that Gen. Holiiday was dead.       . .  ;'
- I tmi not one of those v,'ho   tremble   in '.
tJjp 'presence   of   'death.'  The. dominant,
seu'.inicntiof my heart, n-s I  knelt <besidu -■
t-his lifeless form, 'was.- pi)ign-int grief for
the loss of one   whom   I  had   loved   and ,
roverowced many years.
- Eut when,' after a moment, 1-saw Idood ;
upon him and'upon  tl-.e   door   where   he.
had fallen, and much   move   beneath the
gnret when Iho shot was fired. Of that
fact then couldbc no doubt. She told us
that .'he had come to tho Long licom
immediate".}' after luncheon. Her father
had come in, very soon afterwards, and
liitd gone at ov.ee to his desk. She must
Sjuvo fallen asleep immediately: and
she remembered nothing' more till the
momenuwliev. she saw me standing bo-
side her.
"This
"It. is utterly incredible that Margaret
should not havo boon awakened by the "report of the weapon ; hut it is ever, mure
prenostcrous to suppose that any human
creature would have ' tho hardihood to
commit this crime right before the girl's
face, oven though she. slept."
Ho  might   havo   felt   sure   that   she
said   Marshall; audi
cold   gray   eyes   scanned
o\\ 1 y.
Tho suggestion seemed to escape tho
physician, but it came like a blow to me:
Marrnret's sudden r.^id deep sleep might
furnish the explanation of theentiro mystery. Hilton sat nest to Margaret at. the
table. He mhiht liave drugged her food.
This necessitated the supposition that he
knew that she ai.d her father would bo
together in the I,inig llomu after luncheon.
Itl"wa« not impossible lhut he should have
known it. But i'i that seemed an obstacle
1" the theory, another and more reasonable one .suu'ge.s'.cd iwdf immediately.
Marfan t's fdeep might have been natural
in the beginning. Then some one might
liave come noiselessly to her side,'as I. hud-
done, wit hout -.disturbing - her slumbers. '
He niight liave caused her to inhale some
soporif'erous vapor- which "would 'have
dulled her -/reuses while the murderous
deed was done, passing away' afterwards .
without leaving a txr.ee upon her.     ..
"Wo three were V.ilont : while- , .-thoso
thoughts-w-ovp passing through my brain.
■ I-iiltoiT sat i" a chair and .his hem.l had-
fallen upon ins hands, Before him stood
Marshall, stern and-soldierly. I stood atone sido'observing.them.       , '      ,
If-Margaret v.'as drugged; I thought-,,
who but'thhs doctor could havo done it?
Is 'there some secret 'passion.in- the. mail's
heart for Margaret? D.hl she favor him,,
and did he hope, to win her when his rival'
should lack a father's, influence in His
favor? .'Then there v.'its the will; and Hilton knows'its,contents.
"Tliev hiako yjov,-<!e.rs novradays,"   said
Mars-hail, "which   develop   exfrnordinarv

sealed the lips. 1
Then cumo that other discovery relative •
to the det-k. and it threw all my   vIkiouos
into confusion.
On the forenoon of that day I had- seen !
11 pile 01   bank   notes   in  a drawer of tho
de-ik. and tho   topmost   had   been   of the
denomination   ot   one   hundred   dol'ar-..  1
How   much   was   in   the   pile  I did not
know.    My uncle   had -closed tho drawer 1
immediately,.    I had seen  only one of'the.!
bills.    When Ave   searched the desk under ]
Kelly's direction   there' was no money sit'.
all in it.    My uncle had  only'}n few dol-;j
lnrsnnd'a gold watch', iii' his pockets.   '        !
K robbery was rho motive, whom should j

(he. demeanor, of- the man at the first |

'ever. Indeed, he did not speak ten words, j
except in questions; while ho was in tho.j
house. .    •■•- j
. About an hour after he had gone away,'. ]
I received a telephone message from him'
saying that the case would soon be cleared

hand on tlie- murderer's . shoulder. 1
begged "him to name the guilty man, but
his"only reply was that he. would be a-t

A sickly smile distorted Preble's handsome face.
"I am a defective in tl>c pay of tho
New York police department,'1 ho said.
"I'm hero professionally."
He shuddered at the thought.
"It's a little different from the old
times" hD continued. "I'm heartily
ashamed of it. my boy, but it can't he
helped now. There's little to choose between detective- and crimin il in my
opinion. The criminal inflicts an injury ]
on society, and the detective inflicts an |
injury on the criminal; and the best
defence that the detective can make is the
old school-boy claim: 'The other follow
began it.' Why can't we all let one another alone?"
I was leaning upon the railing of the
verandah and laughing weakly, almost
hysterically. To seo Preble out of that
scrape was too much happiness for me.
Little I cared about his profession. I
thought it as good as most others and
much better than the law. But I knew
him well enough to bo ' sure that whatever profession ho had- .chosen would immediately seem to him the most disgraceful and unbecoming that men's needs had
ever produced.
"We wired to New York for sniati,"
said Kelly, "and Byrnes sent up Mr.
Preble. Between us I gue<s wo can .-ift
this matter down. Would you like to
look at tho body. Mr.' Preble y"
, "Not yet," he replied. "Let us have a
look at the room."
Capt. Marshall joined us while we were
busy there. Preble was examining tho
bullet hole in tho desk and in .the wall.
He enlarged the latter until ho could see
through it, and then he looked o::t, following with ids eye a.-, nearly as po..sibie
■the. d'u:e.cii..n of the ball.
"There's a chance that wo.can find it."
■hesaid, and led, the way to 'the grounds
at- the ■rear of the house.
, Fifty yards back we caino ,to a large
tree, and in its rough bark, near the
ground, after most careful searching,
i-'rehlb found a bullet bole. Five minutes
later ho held in his hand tho leaden mis-
silo-that had killed Con.  Holiiday.
■"Capt: Marshall," he said, "you, as an
expert, will .be able to tell jus what sort
of weapon carries such a -biikt't. "
- '''You know already,-", replied the captain, with a sort jiL^gusp. "I can too
that in.your face. Tris the bullet which
the rifle I am - testing' curries. There is
no other like it." ' '
... I looked anxiously at. Preble, and saw,
to my surprise, that ho"Was not regarding Marshall. Ho was looking over tho
captain's /head.
I turned, and saw a man running
through the grounds. Ho was bent
double, and seemed to fancy himself to
be shiolded by some low shrubbery. I
recognized Hauler, the butler.
"You'd better go after him,-Kelly,"
Kiid Preble, and Kelly obeyed, exhibiting
ev surprising swiftness of foot.
He overtook- Hanley before ho- had
reached the road which bounds tho estate
upon the . south ; and in a. few minutes
the 'trembling servant-stood before 1'reble.
The detective'nodded to Kelly, who instantly began 10 search Hanloy. In one
of his'pockots was a package of twelve
one-hundrod-dolla;'.hills.   ,
"Now, let's have your story without a
moment's delay," said Preble, sternly.
■' "1 swear to you, sir,'" replied tho hut-'
lor, solemnly,'"that I had no hand in
Ihe death. I robbed him, but I did no:,

Breh'.e, "I think v;e shall all feel greatly

and the Ln<-is is no mcrj than this."
He opened his hand . and s.'iowed a
pplinler of wood about r.n inch and a half
long. Kor my part, 1 had no idea of its
bearing upon iho case. The others .*uciir-
cd equally at a loss.
"1 found this on'the floor id. Unit end of

the general's do5-k. "lr, was knocked off

"Bur, Preblo," I exclaimed, "you are
not goiug to tell us that tho murderer
fired through that wall and ncrots tho
whole length ol this room:-'"
, "And-a mile of open country besides, *'
said Preble, calmly,' "if my theory Is

was struck down and extended through
tiie Willi ono foot to-tins' loft of that window would'p:i-,s close to your laboratory

Marshall's forehead was wet with perspiration.
"It is true,", ho said, in a low voice.
"I am afraid that your theory is   right."
"You mean," 1 cried, "that the accidental discharge, of a rifle which was
being tested is responsible for this terrible
calamity-'" ,    0
"You havo scon the1' bullet,'" -said
Preble, "and T have proven the direction
in which it came. The weapon could not
havo been fired near the house or you
would have heard the report. The shot
must liave been accidental, for the .distance anihthe impossibility of seeing'into
this room preclude the possibility of intent. I can see no other explanation.
However, we need not be long in doubt.
If Capt. Marshall will accompany *wo te
tlie spot we can learn whether tboro was
an accidcj.ital discharge of a rifle at.the>
hour named.
"I may add," he continued, "th.\t the
whole nst.ect; of this case indicates the
work of chance. It hr.d nee from this
iirht the appearance of huniftii device
The absolutely impartial bearing: of the
facts, which implicated equally every person who could havo been piiysically
present, showed a broader grasp of detail
than any man can claim. 'Tho minor
crime of iianle}" strikes in discordantly
with the rest. You can Toadily seethe
difference between design and fate which
cm have no purpose. This terrible event
is the forerunner of many which will
follow upon this new development of
modern arms. And 1I10 tragedies will
not all he accidents. If a murdercj' .can
by repeated trials at last strike down his
victim at tho distance of more than a
mile, he will be lews often restrained by
mere cowardice." r
He bade us good-by and went away
with Marshall and Kelly. -In an hour we
received a" telephone message from tho
last named, that Preble's theory had beca
confirmed.

COJ.ONK1,  liAKEIt  At the present stage of development  of Southeast Jvooienay  the  property  holders and  people  generally  cannot  ���well afford to lose Col. Baker  as their  representative in tho Provincial  legislature.    With   the   building   of    the  railroad,   the   development    of    the  rhines and agricultural resources  and  tho' increasing   demand   for   educational' institutions,  the; people  must  have  a representative who,is not a  novice at the, business. iHe  must  be  ,a man of good judgment, good .business ability  and" thoroughly  conver-  tant,. with the   needs   oi   the, people  whom he represents,  ,,  All of these virtues are embodied in  Colonel Baker(   In   point   of knowledge of the country'he represents* he  has traveled over  every portion of it;  not once> but numbers of times;  not  this year,   but for  the  past  fourteen  years���years before men vrho  are now  seeking to down him were,aware there  Was such a country as East Kooteuay.  In point of his Idng   seryicO _in  the  legislature he   is   better   qualified,  to  represent the people than a man  who  is not familiar with, the parliamentary  legislation   of   the   counliy.    By his  'ability  and   influence   he   has done  much for this country   in 'past years,  and much of our prosperity   today   is  easily traceable;  to hiV" efforts.    Take  for instance the building of the Crow's  "Nest road, a project for  which he  has  labored for the paet (en years.   Also  the   building' of  roads,   bridges   and  trails, and  numerous  other improve-  mentis.   In his capacity.as minister oi  mines and minister  of education  he  has had no small influence in securing  improvements   for  this district,  and  Avill have a much greater opportunity  of doing more for it in the' future if reelected. ._.      .  1 (- i  The people of Moyie are not eo nar-  row minded as to entertain, for one  moment tho'idea that Colonel Baker  will work for Cranbrook in preference  to the numerous other towns in the  district.

Nearly every effort ao far made by the |  United Statea to land troops iu Cuba  haa proved disappointing,   Blanco is  eaid to hare 180,000 men under arms,  who are accustomed . to\ the. Climate  and are hardened to field  service, and  they have the  advantagdr5t the   batteries and of thoroughly knowing the  country.
